Chamber of Commerce Out for Revenge over Ex-Im Bank

The Chamber of Commerce has decided to start working for the defeat of conservatives in Congress. Others have written before on this blog about the open war between moneyed Republicans and the Tea Party, and especially between the Chamber of Commerce and the Tea Party. Another chapter in that story of battle and betrayal has come upon us as the Chamber of Commerce swears vengeance over the defeated, crony-capitalist Ex-Im Bank. The Ex-Im Bank, remember, used taxpayer subsidized loans to provide Read more […]

Big Money Pushing Barack Obama on Amnesty

“Comprehensive immigration reform” is a goal of Big Money behind both parties. I’ve already posted several times about how the Chamber of Commerce and other Big Money organizations are pressuring Republicans to declare amnesty. The same kind of Big Money is also behind the Democrat’s campaign. Now we have this from the New York Times, “The Big Money Behind the Push for an Immigration Overhaul.” When President Obama announces major changes to the nation’s immigration enforcement Read more […]

Washington Post Weeps for Poor Big Business after Cantor Loss

It is amazing how all we hear about Big Business and the Republican Party is how evil and influential the Koch Brothers are. The Republicans are despised because they serve corporate interests. Over and over again the Republicans are hammered for being the party of Big Business. And then the Tea Party wins a victory and suddenly it is bad news that Big Business no longer has the Republican Party on its side. Thus, the Washington Post: …with Eric Cantor’s shocking defeat Tuesday night, things Read more […]

Tea Party Not Dead! Eric Cantor Defeated!

Last night when I heard that Eric Cantor had lost his primary battle I went to Google news to look it up. I didn’t have to. Eric Cantor’s face was at the top of the page with the headlines blaring. The Chamber of Commerce has been out for blood ever since the so-called government shutdown.  But, though they have won some victories, they haven’t won all of their battles. As I’ve written before, the Tea Party is not over. Thus, Fox News reported, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost Read more […]

The Chamber of Commerce Sides with Federal Reserve Against Rand Paul

This move by the Chamber of Commerce isn’t that shocking. I had wondered if Rand Paul’s free market principles would keep him from being attacked. But that’s not enough for the Chamber of Commerce. [Note: I somehow put “Ron Paul” in the title of this post and didn’t see my mistake even though I checked it several times! Sorry for the confusion. I know the difference in theory but my brain seems to constantly trip me up in practice.] From CNN Money: Big Business took a swipe at tea party Read more […]

Immigration Is Top Priority for Americans, SAYS NO POLL ANYWHERE!

We keep hearing about how we have a window to deal with immigration this summer, or else the lame duck Congress will do it after the 2014 election. Paul Ryan is working hard to get the votes. Even a Tea Party notable has come out in favor of immigration reform. Tom Donohue of the reprehensible Chamber of Commerce claims the GOP is unworthy to field a candidate for the Presidency if they don’t get “immigration reform” passed. But notice this from Gallup: “Jobs, Government, and Economy Remain Read more […]

Someone Please Tell the Chamber of Commerce to Check Their Privilege on Immigration!

I hate the phrase (or rather, barking demand), “Check your privilege.” Here’s why: Nevertheless, Tom Donohue, the President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce brings out the worst in me and makes me want to bark the demand at him! Check your privilege. While they claim eventually that he was joking, the Politico headline and the lead statement angered me: “Chamber of Commerce gives ultimatum to GOP.” The GOP shouldn’t even field a presidential candidate in 2016 unless Congress Read more […]

Is This Where The Chamber Of Commerce Gets Their Desire For Amnesty?

I’ve asked more than once why certain people act as if we are in desperate need of immigrants to come here and work. Tom Donohue, the President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, actually said that we must have immigration “reform” as soon as possible in order to get “a full and diverse work force” in the United States. He made other statements that made it sound like we had a crisis in the United States of people desperately trying to get workers for new jobs. It seemed delusional. But Read more […]

Can The Chamber Of Commerce Start Making Sense On Immigration?

I’m not asking for them to change their view and conform to my ideas. I don’t get frustrated by the Chamber of Commerce disagreeing with me. But I really wish these people would explain themselves. From the Washington Times: U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas J. Donohue said Monday that Congress must get back to the issue of immigration, arguing that businesses need an influx of immigrant labor because American workers aren’t available. American workers aren’t available? That Read more […]

John Boehner Castigates Barack Obama On The Five-Year Anniversary Of “Stimulus”

From his press office: House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement marking the five-year anniversary of Barack Obama’s “stimulus” plan being signed into law: “The ‘stimulus’ has turned out to be a classic case of big promises and big spending with little results.  Five years and hundreds of billions of dollars later, millions of families are still asking ‘where are the jobs?’  More Americans are living at or below the poverty line.  Median household Read more […]

Mitt Romney: “We Kind Of Had To Steal The Republican Nomination”

The documentary is called “MITT” but from what I see in reviews, it should have been called “LOSER.” It is a movie of the Mitt Romney Presidential campaigns, and most viewers are claiming that the most apparent take away from the documentary is Mitt Romney’s lack of confidence. As Byron York summarize: …for viewers who follow politics closely, especially for Republicans who desperately wanted to defeat Barack Obama, there is a revelation in “Mitt” that is not just unexpected but Read more […]

Media Admits It’s Crony Capitalism And Big Business Vs Tea Party… And Sides Against Tea Party

Earlier in the month, when I wrote about the wonderful Politico.com article on how Wall Street was angry at the Tea Party and was frustrated that it had no control over it, I thought it had to be an anomaly. Surely the media would try to stick with their story that the Tea Party was a creation and puppet of big business. Well, no, they are admitting openly that the Tea Party is opposed by corporations that depend on Federal ponzi  borrowing. In other words, though they never use the language Read more […]
