I participated in a conference call last night (April 15, 2014) with Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX). Focus topics were Attorney General Eric Holder, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), amnesty and House leadership raising money to “take-out” the Tea Party. Well-covered by Patrick Howley at the Daily Caller is Holder’s “childish and lame” comments after he threatened Congressman Gohmert in questioning in a House judiciary committee meeting. ‘Threatened’ is my word, not Gohmert’s or Howley’s, but what else do you call it when the country’s Top Cop doesn’t like a line of questioning and says to a member of Congress, “You don’t want to go there buddy, you don’t want to go there,” and then blames Fast and Furious on the “gun lobby.” Below is the discussion of fundraising to attack Tea Parties and Conservatives. Later today, I’ll pass on what the Congressman said about the IRS, Eric Holder’s lawlessness and what we can do about it, and the House leadership’s “hell bent” determination to make it happen.
Congressman, Louie Gohmert (R-TX)
Jennifer Kerns, Washington Times, asked for remarks on the recent Republican Main Street Partnership get-together on Amelia Island with House leadership attending.
KERNS: Speaking of Leadership, I understand that the story that the mainstream media has not written much about, is a retreat that took place at the Ritz Carleton on Amelia Island in Florida last weekend. It had about a couple of dozen colleagues of yours from Congress who attended a retreat that was funded mostly by George Soros and the Main Street PAC, who is anything but ‘Main Street,’ and just curious to know, No. 1, what do you know about the retreat that took place, and No. 2, what’s your opinion on your colleagues working against Conservatives in an active and progressive way?
GOHMERT: Obviously, what’s reported was going to go on there on Amelia Island has been very disturbing to all of us who are very conservative in the House…we’re the people that apparently intended to be the target of what they’re doing on Amelia Island.
When the subject is, as it has been portrayed, that we’re going to have a fundraiser and help destroy the Tea Party, then that’s like saying, ‘gee, this goose is laying these golden eggs, so why don’t we kill the goose, cut it open and see what happens then, cause it’s just making too much noise. We’re tired of the goose honking….’

The ultimate betrayal although we began to see signs of said betrayal within weeks after the 2010 elections, I remembered the second I detected it and thinking to myself, “all that was promised just 15 days ago has now gone out the window.”
It was as if the Republican leadership with a pat to our heads, one of their half-arse grins on their faces and a shoulder shrug was saying to us at that moment, “That’s the way it goes, now hush children.” Unfortunately, it has gone downhill since but then that was the intent was it not?
The most egregious act of betrayal is collaboration of the Republican leadership with un-American entities such as George Soros and his klan of Communists. Said collaboration a sin that should never be forgiven.
Yes, they have unlimited funding but we have passion, faith and I am hoping the numbers. Acknowledging all of the above, we also have our work cut out for us.
There are those for years who have voted Republican without blinking an eye. Those days are long gone, patriots. Remove the blinders, open those eyes wide.
We can no longer give our vote to those who take us, our children and our grandchildren for granted. Demand that our elected officials work for the people not conspire against us. If they want our vote, they must earn it.
If they make a pledge, they must live by the pledge.
Conservatives can no longer afford to be willing partners allowing the Republican leadership to destroy our voice and that of our chosen selected officials in November because one of us believes that “there is nothing that can we do anyway” and then enter the polling station in November and vote for these scoundrels. Make a concerted effort to learn who the enemies are and make them feel the pain by voting them out. H/t Grumpy Opinions.
Lastly, ignore those emails that we all receive from establishment candidates demanding that we vote Republican while at the same time not holding true to any of the values that we hold dear.
