Speaker Boehner and House Republicans are suing President Obama for his unconstitutional overreach and abuse of power.
This Imperial President’s unprecedented disregard for the Constitution and desire for more power has reached a new low.
Obama has ignored and selectively enforced the law. And he has repeatedly created new laws unilaterally. It’s unconstitutional — it must be stopped.
President Obama has:
* Unconstitutionally made radical changes to ObamaCare
* Unconstitutionally forced through job killing new EPA regulations on the American people
* Unconstitutionally increased what taxpayers pay to federal contractors
* Unconstitutionally waived the statutory work requirements for welfare
* Unconstitutionally created bureaucratic programs not authorized by Congress
It’s time we stand up to President Obama — and it’s time we stop his total disregard for the Constitution and rule of law.
The U.S. Constitution outright declares that the President “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” Yet, President Obama has not.
That is why House Republicans are launching a lawsuit against President Obama. And we need you by our side.
RPW Announces African American Outreach EffortsYou know all the cliches.
‘Republicans are racist.’ ‘Republicans don’t care about African Americans.’ ‘Republicans likes Scott Walker owe their success to segregation and dog whistle racism.’
And then there are the cliches that seem to have a ring of truth.
‘Republicans can’t win African American votes.’ ‘Republican don’t even court African American voters.’ ‘African Americans will never vote for Republicans.’
Democrats, the media, and even a host of Republicans might believe these things to be true - but don’t bother Orlando Owens with this nonsense. He’s too busy building a movement.

The Democrat party has subtly changed the wording, but after all these years it is still crooning the same old racist tunes; updated and syncopated for 2014, of course. The Democrat party “plantation” is the dependence class, with the new harvest being minority voter turnout. The Democrat party can reliably count on minority votes, because they have been telling minorities for the past 45 years that only Democrats “truly care.”

Last year many Wisconsin residents celebrated Wisconsin’s first measurable tax cuts in nearly a decade. In addition to cutting taxes, progress was made in simplifying the tax code as evidenced by the elimination of 17 tax credits, downsizing from five to four tax brackets and eliminating Wisconsin’s depreciation schedules in favor of adopting federal standards. In just over two years, Wisconsin went from billions in the red, to cutting both income and property taxes.
I am pleased we were able to accomplish what we did. At the risk of being the “fly in the punch bowl,” let me state we still have a significant problem. Wisconsin by any measure remains a high tax state.
The praise received for cutting taxes is notable and fair because it signified a significant change in trajectory. However, we can’t kid ourselves, we still have yet to fully implement a pro-growth tax code. It’s analogous to being proud of your 16 year old son for turning off the television and heading off to clean his bedroom, but his bedroom is still a mess.

In my younger days I was your average black leftist, liberal democrat. During the early 1980′s I started reading about American race relations. I was shocked at what I read and could not accept the historical material. So, I started reading American history during the Civil War era. Again, I was shocked. So, I read the Congressional Globe, which pre-dated the Congressional Record, to read something not filtered through the potential bias of an author. Again, I was shocked to learn about the history of the democrat party and how that party laid the foundation that has influenced race relations in America in the past. Those past political actions by the democrat party continue, to this day, to exploit the impoverished condition of black Americans, which were caused by the democrat party for the purpose of gaining political power.

Republicans file lawsuit in attempt to rein in president
A prominent law professor and avowed supporter of the Obama White House will tell the House on Wednesday that the president has created one of the biggest constitutional crises in the country’s history and will endorse House Republicans’ effort to sue to rein him in.
Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University, will say President Obama is trampling the founders’ vision for the country in his push to circumvent Congress, and he will demand Republicans and Democrats alike forget their party labels to unify against this White House’s power grab.

A golden opportunity awaits the GOP
An urban legend put out by the liberal press says that in the late 1960s the Republican Party embarked on a so-called “southern strategy” and exchanged a century-old core constituency of the party, African-Americans, for the support of what was once the Democratic “Solid South.” The only problem, as with most urban legends, is that it is simply not true.
Even if the above narrative is not in fact true, some 85-90% of the black vote today routinely goes to the Democrats, despite the fact that famous African-American personages from Frederick Douglass to Martin Luther King were members of the Republican Party. However, Wisconsin — the state in which the Republican Party was founded — may be about to hand the Democrats a shock which will herald the historic constituency’s return.

Grand Old Partisan commemorates the first convention of the Wisconsin Republican Party. It occurred just a week after the GOP’s state kickoff Under the Oaks in Michigan. Anti-slavery newspaper editors who called for this meeting had selected the anniversary of the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, which banned slavery from the region.
Most residents of Wisconsin opposed the Kansas-Nebraska Act, enacted by Democrats and their allies. This vile law extended slavery into the western territories. Friends of freedom knew they had to unite politically if the Democratic Party were to be stopped from destroying the country.
On the morning of July 13, 1854, nearly four thousand people gathered in the park by the capitol building in Madison. . . .

160 years ago today!
This magazine (National Review) has long specialized in debunking pernicious political myths, and Jonah Goldberg has now provided an illuminating catalogue of tyrannical clichés, but worse than the myth and the cliché is the outright lie, the utter fabrication with malice aforethought, and my nominee for the worst of them is the popular but indefensible belief that the two major U.S. political parties somehow “switched places” vis-à-vis protecting the rights of black Americans, a development believed to be roughly concurrent with the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the rise of Richard Nixon. That Republicans have let Democrats get away with this mountebankery is a symptom of their political fecklessness, and in letting them get away with it the GOP has allowed itself to be cut off rhetorically from a pantheon of Republican political heroes, from Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass to Susan B. Anthony, who represent an expression of conservative ideals as true and relevant today as it was in the 19th century. Perhaps even worse, the Democrats have been allowed to rhetorically bury their Bull Connors, their longstanding affiliation with the Ku Klux Klan, and their pitiless opposition to practically every major piece of civil-rights legislation for a century. Republicans may not be able to make significant inroads among black voters in the coming elections, but they would do well to demolish this myth nonetheless.

The state Public Service Commission recently ruled that the City of Milwaukee may not pass on the cost of relocating utilities for a streetcar project to ratepayers. The decision has revived allegations that Republicans have something against Milwaukee, which is not true.
When I moved to Milwaukee 13 years ago, I immediately fell in love with this great city. The Milwaukee area is where I want to raise a family, build a business, give back and retire. The policies that my colleagues and I have fought for reflect our genuine efforts to move Milwaukee forward.

State Convention is a time to show the strength of our Party – and the momentum we have going into November. The Party is unified and focused on re-electing Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch, and our Republican majorities.
RPW is now 16 offices strong – as we’ve said all along, we believe it is our grassroots movement that will be critical to victory. This year, we have unprecedented programs in place that are registering new voters, identifying supporters, and building the systems needed to win that will ultimately turn out support on Election Day for Republicans.
Convention is a vital time for discussion between legislators, activists and volunteers – and truly will set the course for victory in November.
During the last three years, Republicans have experienced a lot in Wisconsin. We fought hard to keep Governor Walker, Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch, and our Republican leaders in office, and to protect the reforms that saved our state.
We made the tough, but prudent, decisions necessary to balance the budget and create a government that works for the taxpayers, not against them.
The great news is that the voters of Wisconsin reaffirmed the direction they wanted to take the state in 2012, we have now been able to invest in our priorities – lower taxes, more jobs, a balanced budget, and a greater opportunity for all of Wisconsin.
Now, jobs are coming back, we have a budget surplus, the tax burden is down, and most importantly our economy is growing. Wisconsin is back on, and we’re moving forward.
Republican accomplishments include:
* With Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, and a Republican majority in both the State Senate and State Assembly, we are truly able to invest in the state’s priorities and set a direction for the state to move forward
* Eliminating a $3.6 billion budget deficit without tax increases, and a budget surplus that has allowed investment in the state’s priorities
* Over $3 billion in savings, and reforms that are working for the taxpayer, not for bigger government
* Over $2 billion in tax relief, through property tax and income tax cuts, and a tax withholdings plan that is saving the typical Wisconsin family $520 this year alone
* A lower tax burden for middle-class families and job creators, and employer confidence now sits at 95%, up over 80 points since Walker and Republicans have taken in office
* Over 100,000 new jobs and over 17,000 new startups
* Unemployment is now at 5.9%, lower than the national average and the lowest in the state in 5 years
* A hold on property taxes three years in a row; after a 27% increase in the previous 10 years, Wisconsin’s property taxes are lower in 2014 than they were in 2010
* Four years ago, the debate in Madison revolved around the size of tax hikes, but now we’re discussing tax cuts and government reform
We’ve accomplished so much – but we believe the best is yet to come. We’ve laid the groundwork, and now is the time for us to take action. It is our grassroots movement that will pave the way to victory in November.
–SNIP– 1) You can commit a crime and your local newspaper usually won’t mention what party you’re in if you’re a Democrat.
2) You can be a white liberal who viciously mocks black men like Clarence Thomas, Allen West, and Ben Carson without being called a racist.
3) You can be a Communist or a radical Islamist, you can hate America or even engage in acts of terrorism and still get a job as a college professor. In fact, it probably makes it more likely you’ll be hired.
4) You can live in a mansion, fly around in private jets and consume more energy than a small town and still be taken seriously when you say we need to cut back on our lifestyles to fight global warming.

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks.
Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect him to become an MSM nonperson. Such seems to already be the fate of former presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey. It is no surprise that his extended criticisms of Obama appeared in in a Daily Mail article in Britain, not in America where the shunning seems to have already begun. Here is what Kerrey has to say about Obama which you most likely won’t see in any major liberal news outlet in America:
