“We should just start calling this law SCOTUScare”

So Sayeth Justice Antonin Scalia, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.

And they are correct.  Justice Roberts and the presumed swing vote Justice Kennedy are completely happy supporting their leftist counterparts in rewriting the law and acting in a defacto legislative manner.  In the meantime our cowardly Republican congress plans its next budget including the money used to screw over the population in a direct violation to the constitution.

The biggest cowards of course being our own Tim Walberg, Dan Benishek, Candace Miller, congressBill Huizinga, David Trott, Mike Bishop, John Moolenaar, and perpetual sandbagging liberal Fred Upton. Without their support for continuing funding of the Obama plans, all of this would be moot.  Without their capitulation to the sell out speaker of the house Obamacare would have been repealed by the purse.  Without their complete and total disrespect for the Constitution of the United States, Obama and the complete and total change of our Republic under his guidance would be but a memory.

As for the ‘Democrats?’ We have know for quite some time that the Marxist infiltration of THAT party is complete.

For those of you getting a little excited about being able to finally be proud of our Michigan delegation?  It’ll have to wait another day, or week, or decade in all likelihood. The vote? Three Michigan Republicans voted to enforce the rule of law through the ONE tool that congress has.

Upton is sMITTen with Glee for Amnesty

Been meaning to address this recent development, however, living Life 101 sometimes intrudes with stealing time from the perpetual game of Whac-A-Mole that is the Republican Party, its leadership, its members, and the very treachery they all represent.

IllegalsA total of 26 Republicans officially announced themselves as RINO open borders traitors and enemies of the Constitution and its separation of powers today. They did so by voting against the successful Marsh Blackburn (R-TN) amendment to the Homeland Security funding bill which prevents any of those funds from being used in the implementation of Hussein Obama’s dictatorial amnesty or in the funding of future DACA applications or renewals.

The bill passed by a vote of 218-209 [see here], with the defections coming largely in districts in which Republicans represent large minority populations and in which they may have felt it prudent to put their perceived interests of minority citizens and their associated votes over the Constitution and the oath they swore.

While the writer above appears to like to hang the moniker of RINO upon the 26 self-serving cat’s-paws, I have to ask, why is this a surprise to anyone? Did not 162 Republicans fund amnesty and Obamacare last month?

Sorry folks, but the expression RINO is officially dead. They are what they are – parasites – with only goal as elected members is to maintain a seat at the table of government where they happily run their fingers through the trillions of tax dollars flowing into D.C. Have any doubt? Well, then just witness what the alleged thrice candidate says on November 26, about amnesty.

Indeed, nepotism loyalists – Swallow H A R D.

Witch Doctor

Witch doctor
noun
(among tribal peoples) a magician credited with powers of healing, divination, and protection against the magic of others.

It’s no secret to loyal RightMi.com readers that I have little use for, Rep. Dan “Enough is Enough” Benishek. You see, good ‘ol slow-talking Doctor Dan, has this history of wanting to portray himself as a “Constitutional conservative” only to vote to raise the debt ceiling, reauthorize the NDAA, and vote to fund Obamacare. That’s a “Constitutional conservative”?

Benishemp-RINOHardly, and his 1% margin over Gary McDowell, in 2012, certainly serves to highlight that CD-1 voters see Doctor Dan as a fraud who happened to be in the right place at the right time in 2010, for certain movers and shakers within the state Party’s apparatchik.

Well, upon discovery, I just happened across Doctor Dan’s new allegiance to the Progressive Country Club, or as founder Fred Upton, would like to convince us unapologetic Conservatives, his “main street partnership”. Frankly, I do not see one thing considered normal, Constitutional, nor even Conservative about its founders and their Democrat-lite mission statement.

It is though, a clear sign of how desperate Dan Benishek is to remain in office.

It’s time for Doctor Dan to be booted from the District of Corruption, and back to his private life of billing Medicaid/Medicare.

Vote your conscience tomorrow.

I am.

FreedomWorks Mi Score Card

FreedomWorks Issues Its 2014 Key Votes Scorecard.

A reliably conservative watchdog, FreedomWorks reflects the views of many conservative and tea types

Not surprisingly, certain lawmakers scored higher than their supposedly ideological brothers.  We have seen the squishy unprincipled selling out of the USA for far too long to not expect it to be revealed in this type of scoring.

Blast From the Past

Memory holes are fun.

mcc2009-05-graphic6LRG

Time’s second most outrageous was a $1.9 million appropriation for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at City College of New York. The earmark was inserted by none other than Congressman Charles B. Rangel, D-New York, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which is where federal tax laws are drafted. According to Time, the project’s total price tag is $30 million, and it has been dubbed the “Monument to Me” by its critics. The magazine notes that a more junior member of Congress questioned Rangel about the propriety of members using taxpayer dollars to sponsor projects bearing their own names. “I would have a problem if you did it,” Rangel replied, “because I don’t think that you’ve been around long enough.”

Only 108 members voted to cut federal taxpayer subsidies for the Rangel Center. Five Michigan Republicans and four Democrats were among the 316 who voted to save the earmark.

Well, at least voters in CD-6 and CD-10 understand the mindset of Fred, and Candi in their wagon circling little D.C.-GOP world they live in.

None of it should surprise. And, to think that Camp replaced Charles… go figure.
