    Harkin, “I believe, Mr. President, we are at one of the most dangerous points in our history right now. Every bit as dangerous as the break-up of the Union before the Civil War.”

    This is exactly what the DICKtator in Chief wants. Declare martial law and he’s in forever.

    • azwayne

      He WILL be removed, have no doubt. Maybe sooner than he thinks.

      • Tim Hymel

        This is Harkins last term , he is retiring thank goodness.One of the many commies in congress.Hope Iowa can elect a conservative in 2014.

    • MontieR

      He won’t be there long, we have had enough. If it means removing them by force so be it.

    • Rattlerjake

      There will be no martial law, when most of the military sides with conservatives. Obuthead will be hanging by a rope if he orders martial law, along with all of the rest of the demoturds and RINOs!

      • DebbieOhio912

        Definitely a civil war. We will be fighting against Obama’s private FEMA army.l

  • jong

    I do believe many have said this before about such people as Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Washington, Samuel Adams and the rest of the founding fathers. Cruz is in good company.

    • Washington22

      Those founding fathers that you mention, would be PROUD of Ted Cruz and what he’s doing for his fellow Americans They gave us the foundation and expect us to follow through.

  • polmutant

    cool, when does the show start?

  • James

    He is right on one thing, and that is we are at about the same place as we were in the Civil War time. In fact the issues are the same. It is “States Rights” the same as it was then. We fought the civil war over the fact that the Federal government only has that power that is given to them in the Constitution. The States have certain rights also and the dam Federal Government has been forcing the states to accept queers, communist, Terrorist and a host of other things that the states have a right to refuse. We may dam well have to fight another civil war if we don’t get rid to these dam politicians that want to ignore the Constitution.

    The Tea Party is the patriots, the minute men and the men wanting to be free. They are not the enemy and they are not the problem. Reagan said it when he said, “Government is not the answer; Government is the problem.” It is idiots like Sen. Tom Harkin, a democrat that thinks he has
    the right to tell everyone else what to do, what to believe, how much tax to pay, and he thinks he has the right to take what I worked for and give it to a lazy welfare person. Your dam right we are almost to another civil war thanks to him and to ass holes like him.

  • Proudamerican

    You better believe they have! If you dems think for one minute we will stand by and just watch you steal from us you are mistaken! We are ready-are you?

  • danclamage

    Cruz’ ideology is Freedom, pure and simple. Freedom for all Americans as protected by the Constitution. I strongly recommend Democrats should try reading it a couple of times before shooting their mouths off.

  • gbandy

    It all starts with Obama and his failed presidency. Obama has divided this Nation into races, the successful, business owners, and the takers. Obama will continue to “level the field and increase more taxes and costs to the successful job creators and without flinching wonder why no new jobs. Revolution is in the air and the only way to stop this is we change this government in 2014.

    • Bruce_in_San_Jose

    Senator Tom Harkin neds to shut his Piehole , Liberal Democrat , I`m sure after he made that speech many of his Constituants wanted to Lynch him for being such a Moron and not understanding that Ted Cruz actually had the best interest of not only his Constituants in mind ,But the rest of this Nation also , Unfortunately by the Time The Communist Party formerely known as The Democrats and Liberals start crying ,It is too late , Mike Lee ,Rand Paul and Ted Cruz We The People are behind you ,Hold your ground and do the right thing !!!!!!

      • rosech

        Ditto for many of us in CA.

      • OzzWorx

        We have no representation in CA. The demon rats have the unions buy the votes of the ignoratti. Then they proceed to strip our rights. If we vote in the majority (Prop. 187, Prop. 8) the courts nullify the vote and the State will not fight for us. The legislature is picked by the unions and is so paranoid of the people they steal our rights and our money at will. On the federal level the ninth circuit votes against us every time and with Feinstein, the ugly face of gun control, and Boxer, the ugly face, we look like fools in Congress. Remember, this State used to belong to the people, but Moonbeam coerced the State employees into unions in 1976.

    • Ray_Downen

      Obama got enough votes (some by manipulation of voting machines, some by preventing armed forces from voting, some by even more obvious fraud) to be elected and re-elected to ruin this nation. For a foreigner, he has accomplished a very great deal indeed. It will be interesting when historians find out where he was born and why he so thoroughly hides his college records. And his backers will pretend to be amazed when the truths are known.

      • Becky

        His backers already KNOW the truth Ray. Nancy Pelosi, at the time he declared his candidacy, had to sign on to his candidacy. As she did not want to perjure herself (not that the law matters to any of these thugs…), she actually CHANGED the wording on the legal form from “Natural Born Citizen” to merely “citizen”. They know EXACTLY what they are doing and have since the beginning – and that is bringing the US down.

  • Beepster

    Ted Cruz is a terrorist. If you don’t believe that, ask any Demidog Senator, and he/she will tell you. FWIW, I’m a terrorist also. I’m a vet, I believe in the 2nd Amendment, and I HATE OslammerheadCare.

  • MontieR

    The polarization is almost complete. The socialist city dwellers and the real Americans. These idiots actually believe their own lies. We as citizens NEED the federal government to shut down as 85% of ALL federal action is absolutely outside of the constitution. The liberal/socialist rot will soon be excised
    when they suspend the constitution completely and don’t think they don’t already have a plan for it.
    Liberalism is a disease of the mind.

  • Sharkteeth

    Put aside your sense of self-preservation. The Federal Government has put their thirst for power ahead of the will of the people. What will your heirs say about this generation that failed to protect The Constitution.

    • Ray_Downen

      It would be good to give credit where credit is due. It’s OBAMA who has gotten us into the mess we’re now in. He deserves all the credit. Its HIS government which is now alien to the republic. He controls the Democrat party and the government which is no longer friendly to patriots. Yet many who are in the government are no friend to Obama. Yet he now is boss of every agency of the federal government.

      • sc

        Ray that is a wrong, barry does not deserve all the credit, if it had not been for Nancy P. and the DNC, barry would still be just a mumbling senator from Illinois, but the socialist and communist and now the muslums that have managed to get into the congress of the U.S. have been working on this very plan for many years, remember Joe McCarthy he tried to warn us over sixty years ago that this was going to happen, but very few would listen or take the time to check out what the said, so in a way it is our own fault that we are in the mess that we are now in.

      • Ray_Downen

        I don’t remember McCarthy speaking even once of a Muslim as our President. Nor is anyone really to blame except Obama himself and those who believed his promises.

      • sc

        i did not say that McCarthy said any thing about the muslums, he did try to warn the people about the communist, and barry is one as well as being a muslum. you should do a bit more research on the communist party and how they plan to take over not only the united states but the rest of world.

      • Becky

        Technically ray it has been the Democrat, ie Communist party, who has been hard at work for this moment since the 1960s. Today is merely the culmination of all they have sought for decades.

      • Ray_Downen

        I know no reason to suspect that Democrats are Communists. Technology is good, but I don’t see that technology equates Democrats with Communists. The goals of the Democrat party are not pretty, but they do not seem to be identical with known Communist goals.

      • Becky

        Ray this is actual Historical information that can be found and read. In the 1950s the Communists TOLD the US they would take us over. In the 1960′s they actively began working their plans, with much help from traitorous, idiotic Americans. They understood that America was so Capitalistic that they couldn’t just walk in and do this. It had to be done subversively. They saw at the time that our old Democratic Party was the closest to their ‘ideals’ (which BTW a whole lot of educated, in the old sense, and intelligent Americans knew) and planned to infiltrate and take over that party. They have. This is actual History and it can be found and studied. Our Democrat party is NOW an ACTUAL Communist party.

        Our Hitler in the WH is also a Communist mu-slime. He’s mu-slime because his father AND step-father were, and just as the Jews pass their Heritage down through their mothers, mu-slimes pass their Heritage down through the father. He is also full bore Communist because his father was. And his Mother. And more than likely his maternal grandparents.

  • DJ

    We need to put real Americans in office. Not this CRAP we got now.

    • Washington22

      REAL Americans, grass-root Americans, Tea PARTY elected Americans.

      • Ray_Downen

        It’s Republican patriots who will save the nation if it can be saved. The Tea Party partisans have been a good influence in our party, but the party to win is the Republican Party. If the Tea Party runs against the Republican and Democrat parties, it will simply cause the Democrats to win every race.

      • Washington22

        I’m certainly NOT suggesting a strictly Tea Party party….Is that what you are saying? I said that the Republican Party needs to be inundated with Tea Party folk…..grass root Constitutional Americans………..do you argue with that? The remaining old guard Republicans are washed up and need the new blood of the Tea Party to mix it up and get the old ones the heck out.

      • Ray_Downen

        Good thinking, Washington! No, I do not disagree.

      • Thomas Gill

        Republicans are just as bad as the demon rats.I am tired of voting for the lesser of two evils,because I still get evil.Time to get a new broom,and sweep the capitol clean.Get rid of all of them!Start over!

      • Ray_Downen

        Tom says shoot them all, the good AND the bad and clean the slate. Yet my Senator is a patriot and does all that can be done to benefit the nation. And my Representative is a patriot and does all that can be done to benefit the nation. Fire these good men and claim we’re doing a good thing? Nonsense. We vote out of office the Obamaites and those whose votes prove them to be no friends to us citizens. We replace the bad guys with good guys. But to put out of office good people who have served and are serving us well is stupid.

      • Thomas Gill

        Whho said ” shoot them all” ,not me.You did.You have a minority opinion,the corruption in congress is not new.They vote themselves rises at midnight,get free healthcare,exempt from obamacare,a pension worth dying for,frankingprivileges,a staff,good pay,and they call them selves servants?Puhleeeese!Mark Twain said,”suppose you are an idiot,and suppose you are a member of congress.But I repeat myself”You sound like a die-hard republican,they ma be better than demon rats,but not by much.Voting blindly forone party is stupid.Look up George Washington’s thoughts on political parties,and get an education.

      • Ray_Downen

        It’s sheer ignorance to claim that all politicians are bad so we need to replace them all. It’s Democrat politicians who have put the nation into peril. It’s a bad mistake to blame Republicans for what Obama and his party (Democrats) have done and are doing. I admit that I’m surprised to find ROY BLUNT siding with the Democrats on an important vote this week.

      • Becky

        Of course it is Ray but we live in times where we can no longer abide by the “don’t throw them all out”. I DETEST term limits just because the good are eliminated as well but it’s time for term limits. Pols are mostly in office to enrich THEMSELVES with power and money, not help this country or its citizens.. Cleaning house is EXACTLY what we need to do – followed by deportation of all the Communists in our government who have ruined us – MINUS their wealth. That needs confiscated and put toward the debt because THAT is what they caused.

      • Ray_Downen

        Communists? I know of no Communists in our government. But it’s obvious that Obama is a Muslim. Every Muslim appointment made by Obama needs to be reversed if the nation is to be saved. I disagree that none of those in Congress are there because they love the nation and seek to serve it well. House Republicans have done all in their power to preserve the U.S.A. Senate Republicans are outnumbered. Voters are to blame for this, and it’s hoped that 2014 will replace every Democrat with a patriotic Republican Senator. What has caused our massive debts is Obama, the Muslim. His actions don’t jibe with him being a Communist.

      • Ray_Downen

        Republicans are not “the lesser of two evils.” We stand for God and country and deserve support from every patriot.

      • sc

        Sorry Ray but as long as republicans listen to the likes of Carl Rowe and those good old cigar chomping buddy’s of his nothing will change, look at the last two presidential elections and the two losers that were fostered off on the public, first was old cave in John McShame, who has never stood for anything unless it was approved by the DNC, then came the loser Romney, hell he couldn’t even beat out McShame the first time around, so with this kind of back stabbing there is not a chance in hell of the republicans ever getting anything done.

      • Ray_Downen

        Attacking Mitt Romney costs you nothing except respect. He was a far better candidate than Ron Paul could possibly be, and that was who was being pushed by foolish members of the party. Romney did well and received almost as many votes (if we were counting honest votes) as did Obama with his lying promises.

    • Ray_Downen

      This nation is blessed with several patriots holding public office. DJ says every already-elected politician is a crook. He is obviously wrong in that judgment.

      • Washington22

        He may be a little wrong, but certainly NOT by much. The good ones can be counted on ONE hand. I concur with his estimation.

      • DJ

        Oh really, then why haven’t any of our politicians come against any of his executive orders? I know why, they don’t have the balls to stand up against him. I’ve called my Congressman, 3 times this week. I get the same crap from the idiot that I speak with, when I call. It’s time to put somebody up there with balls.

      • Ray_Downen

        Neither the House nor the Senate is asked permission for the President to issue executive orders. They are SUPPOSED to be to explain and enforce laws made by the Congress. But nothing has been put in place for oversight of those orders, so far as I know. It’s assumed the President will do his job as he should. This president has done much that is contrary to the Congress rather than to enforce and defend the laws of the land.

  • Moliminous

    This modern-day schism won’t be of the North and the South. It will be of the East and West. It will be the politics and pograms of socialism and fascism versus the best of Western Civilization.

    This is just another example of how they are trying to say that standing up for what is right is wrong. They will try to convince the American people those of us who wants to uphold the Constitution that we are right wing terrorist or anarchist as Harry Reid would have us to believe. I do not know where these people get the idea that they are better than us and therefore think they know what is best for us. The true anarchist are people like Mr. Harkin and the rest of the Democratic Party who are his cohorts in this crime against America and it’s citizens. Ted Cruz and a small hand full of others are the only ones defending the people and trying to stop this enslaving law. Ever since Obama Care was passed all we have heard out of the Republicans is a lot of lip service on stopping it with no movements made in that direction. I hope Mr. Cruz will continue on the path towards turning around and getting America back on the right track. We could use a lot more like him in our government who would be sincere in the promises they make. This bunch up there have been there to long and amassed to much power and wealth on the backs of hard working Americans and “We the People” would be much better off without them. Let me add, that goes for both sides.

  • Jim Hammond

    Senator, I am an independent voter and I do INDEED hold both parties to blame for the mess you have gotten our nation into. We have a president who twists the constitution in order to get his way, refuses to listen to the clear will of the people of our nation, and a congress and senate who are so sold on their respective PARTY LINE that they refuse to cooperate and tell the president to listen to the people he is supposed to represent and above all HONOR and follow our Constitution and Bill of Rights. The Democratic controlled Senate is nothing but a rubber stamp for the president and the unions. They care nothing about our nation. Gentlemen (and I use that name very loosely) you disgust me but I feel you are very right when you say you have pushed a large portion of the American people to the brink. Keep on. You may not like the results.

    Mr. Harken and the democ-RATS have lied and lied and lied. Cowards like McCAin, Cornyn, Graham and Corker have back stabbed their constituents and REAL Conservative Republicans. The ass clown in the White House has turned into a third world tyrant. The Chief Justice of the United States Supreme court is more interested in how the Supreme Court appears, then in the Rule of Law and the U.S. Constitution (changing words in an unconstitutional law to make it appear constitutional). Now Mr. Harken is disturbed that our nation appears to be head long into civil war. Mr. Harken, you and your filth in the democ-RAT party have stripped Americans of our Sovereignty, our constitutionally protected rights and you are disturbed by the lawful actions of Tea Party Conservatives. You, Mr. Harken are an idiot

    • Becky

      And THAT was the politest way to say it!

  • Michael Lee Pemberton

    Politicians and government appointees believe that they are safe and will be protected against any attempt to force them off of the stage and out of the government by an organized armed rebellion. Perhaps they are correct in their assumption that their government funded security will prevent them from coming to harm. True patriots believe in the system and are loath to resort to violence, but demagogues have used and abused the political process and subverted some of America’s most cherished and fundamental principles.

    Legislation has been cobbled together through compromises to create omnibus bills that carry unrelated legislation that would be rejected due to a lack of merit if attempted as a piece of separate legislation. Legislative bills have become so huge and contain terms peculiar to the legal profession so that they are not thoroughly read and easily understood, even by educated men and women. The confrontational nature of our legal system has been carried into our legislatures. The political parties and their members in government positions have made compromises for their own convenience rather than for the efficient operation of the government institutions. They have made interpretations of the nature and intent of our Constitution and amendments to fashion government regulations that plainly infringe upon our rights and liberties as free men and as citizens. Clearly, we are not well represented by cabals of like minded self-serving elected representatives who owe their position and livelihood to political parties and wealthy individuals and lobbying groups. Neither are we well served by the supposedly wise elders who sit on our nation’s highest court and pretend to be unbiased defenders of the Constitution.

    If political parties can be outlawed because their philosophy is antithetical to the best interests of the citizens and government institutions of a democratic republic, such as the Moslem Brotherhood was in Egypt, then why do we not outlaw all political parties and political special interest groups here, which are plainly antithetical to the best interests of the citizens of this nation. I am not advocating anarchy, only genuine democracy where we support the principles of our Constitution based upon merit rather than the almighty power of the advertising dollars spent to run popularity contests that conceal themselves in the guise of free and unbiased elections? Why do we not heed the wisdom of Samuel Clemmons, who said “Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest”?

    Perhaps we should endorse the “ideology-driven obstructionism”, for, if the Congress cannot pass any legislation, it is the only guarantee we have that Congress will not pass harmful legislation that can only be redressed by armed resistance by honorable men. Plutarch noted nearly two millennia ago that “The real destroyer of the liberties of any people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations, and largess”. Patrick Henry declared “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”. It was also he who stated “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”.

    Personally, I am not prepared for a revolution, but I do not know how much longer others will tolerate being led to the slaughter by the Judas goat leading the current government administration. I have experienced war and I know that every soldier has a vested interest in peace, because it is they who will pay the terrible cost of war with their tears, suffering, blood, and perhaps even their lives. I state this simply, and yet I would do my duty gladly and pay the price to right the ship of state and restore sanity to our nation. Many of our people have sought redress of grievances against fiscal irresponsibility, incompetence, and criminal negligence on the part of the government administration, legislature, and the judiciary, and they have been ignored, dismissed, and subjected to slander and ridicule. When reason fails, there is but one resort.

    • Becky

      Wow Michael, all very well said. I agree too. Including your very last statement, and I believe we are quickly approaching that. It will be interesting to see what happens when the Millennials – who voted for this Fascist twice – start getting their bills for their health care. All bills do come due. They have that to learn yet apparently. Nice summation of some of our History.

  • Marine Mom

    It’s not so much a Ciivil War, as it is just a junior high school tit for tat. The results for Americans will be the same…we have a nogood potus demanding that we give up all our rights so he can pander to the “poor” ( and the muslims) and no one will win. But, there is no such thing as a Right Wing Extremist, just like there is no such thing as a moderate muslim. This sorry arse man in the White House is only there because his skin is black and therefore no responsible, decent American is supposed to dispute him; or be called a racist. It isn’t his job, he didn’t build it, he is just the puppet. If America doesn’t stand up now, we are well and truly gonna be third world nation. Socialism is nothing but shared poverty. Get rid of obozo..perhaps the rest of the snake will squirm back into the dust…all we must do is cut off the head. Semper Fi

    • bjreg3

      Look out for another inept moron thats going to run for prez. Another abject failure called Hillary “the Benghazi queen”.

  • Marine Mom

    Start cutting with welfare. The fraud there is so out of hand, until it is unreal. How can a single” mom ” with 6 or more “chillen” afford a 65, ooo $ auto? I am tired of working and paying taxes for this crap to continue. She is not poor….she has food, health and house, all paid for by me, and all she has to do it just drop another baby on our doorstep. Odd, tho, isn’t it, that her party is the one for legalized abortion with more of my tax money. I don’t get the connection, altho is seems to prove that people like that can crap all over us and insist that it doesn’t stink. Semper Fi

    • Washington22

      It, welfare, should be STRICTLY monitored to see who is really in need of help and who is NOT. Of course, you’d have to face thousands of government jobs being ended, but so what? Those who are abusing the system, on both sides, need to be stopped.

      • Marine Mom

        Yep, I had a friend that worked for the gub-mint checking on welfare fraud ( and this was over 25 years ago) and he had to CALL to make an appointment with the fraud-ee. Well, sure,then she had time to run the bo-friend off and get the drugs hidden etc. and all that would be seen was a poor ole single parent trying her best (?) to raise all these chillen. Seems to me that if one has children, then they must provide for them ON THEIR OWN. Otherwise why have them, hummmmm? So, monitoring will work to some extent, but with it being supported by obozo, it’s getting worse. I know some will say that whites outnumber the black and lations on welfare, so, ok, but whites make up close t0 75% of this nation. You do the math. Semper Fi

        Well gosh gollie Marine mom!!! You think like I and many other REAL Americans think! A glorious thought. If you have kids and refuse to support them, oh well. Sterilize the parent so there are NO more kids on welfare. They do NOT have the right to force the support of THEIR brats on to others. If THEY choose starvation so be it.

    • Becky

      I have been saying so for a long time. NO able-bodied person should be on it AT ALL. OR their brats. If THEY choose to sit on their dead azzes and let their kids starve, then sterilize them so they can’t harm anymore kids. But no taxpayer ever should have been responsible for the useless and lazy. It is easy enough to figure out the elderly who need help and the truly disabled. Get everyone else off of it. My vote is to kill ALL types of welfare immediately and start over. Find the honestly poor and disabled and put them back on a help system and keep everyone else off of it. Some people believe we need to just stop Social Security and Medicare, but that would be criminal until the laws are cleaned up in this country. I have nothing left to live on when I had my retirement taken care of, hundreds and hundreds of thousands worth, past a million if it hadn’t been stolen. Merrill Lynch stole every bit of it. And there were NO resources to get it back from the lousy thieves at that time.. So first fix the laws and make all thieves totally responsible and culpable for what they do, THEN start returning the system to what it was. But that would only work if we forever keep the Dems/Commies out of government. Banning and deporting them all as the Communists they are would fix THAT problem too.

  • interestedobserver2

    If it has reached such a pass (though obviously Harkin is a fool who is employing yet more damaging hyperbole), it has done so because an intransigent and evil clique of men and women called Democrats are once again dragging us into a situation where only violence can solve the problems they are creating — just as they did in the 1850′s before the first Civil War.

    Cruz and his patriotism and support of the Constitution are BAD to Harkin, but the fascism of Obamacare and the dictatorial and blatantly totalitarian way it was “passed” is just fine. Civil war sounds like a pretty reasonable alternative…

    • Becky

      Yes it does. Too bad our government is so heavily armed AGAINST US that it’s going to be a wipe-out of us. We might still be forced to have another Civil War to end this Communist BS. But it won’t be country region against another region – it will be the citizens against the GOVERNMENT. Add in CA and NY, the other Communist bastions, and that covers it.

      • buck80ish

        The rank and file military are overwhelmingly on OUR side Becky . Be aware that the military ( the regular uniform services) ARE NOT going to turn against the population for long , and that is why Obummer has created his DHS /nazi army to do his dirty work.

        The wipe out thing is wrong . I know the DHS/nazis are extremely well armed and supported but the military is too and
        there will be a tipping point where he will lose control of the military .

      Hi VietVet. You bet. Dems, who are really Communists now, have been wishing for our demise since the 60′s. You and I know it. Anyone educated since the 60′s in a public school just believes the lies they’ve been taught. Glad you made it home Vet, and stay safe and well.

      • 5465vick

        Hold on there Becky. I was fortunate enough to be taught in a good public school system in the 60′s and 70′s. The overwhelmingly vast majority of teachers I had were conservative. They taught actual history, the truth about communism and socialism. Marx, Hitler, Stalin, and especially Mao were bad dudes, Socialism and communism were taught as detrimental to a Judeo Christian society such as ours. We were still taught about God and the truth about the founding of the U.S. In other words the vast majority of the students were graduated with a sense self confidence and the ability to make their own way and not to be dependent upon others. I think we were probably one of the last classes to be taught this way as things changed rapidly going into the 80″s. I know how terrible communism and socialism are. I make sure that whenever the conversation I have with someone turns to these, they also know.

      • Becky

        Yeah my school was just in the process of going to indoctrination at the beginning of the 70s. But it was already there to see and I was out in the boonies where the impact was very much lessened. The cities would have been long into indoctrination. This whole education evolution was to produce the population we have now and for the last 2 – 3 generations. People too stupid to know Communism and want it stopped. This was a well-thought out AND planned goal of the Communists. Some leeway depending where the school system was, but not much. Any leeway ENDED when the Feds took education and that was done as a part of their planned takeover of America.

    • henryknox

      The extreme wing of the D party has already taken over that party. It is amazing to see comments like this from them. Many theorized that one reason they pushed through Obamacare was to ignite a civil war in which they could proclaim a crisis and institute Marshall law. Perhaps they are admitting that.

We need 400 hundred Ted Cruz’s. We need ZERO of you. YOU COMMUNISTS are the zealots and extremists in our country right now and you are all either too stupid or violently ANTI-AMERICAN to accept that fact.

Perhaps they can’t read well enough to learn the name of the opposition candidate? Harkin (among many others) is scared. If there is anything upon which politicians place priority it is the pulse of the citizenry. They spend great wads of OUR money to hire investigators and pollsters. The fact that there is a great number of citizens with blood in their eyes backing Cruz, Lee, Paul, Palin and a lengthy list of young lions is quite unnerving.

        Using Governmet Data, MORE AMERICANS ARE on Government Assistance today than in 2009 when pResident Post Turtle took Office. Jobs are being liquidated from the inventory and people have stopped looking for work. Don’t spout a 7.3% unemployment rate because underemployment and those who have given up looking for work is abysmal. THAT is from DOL who consistently has to re-adjust their data each month.

        “..and gave us a health care act. ( A TAX TO MANDATE A PERSON PURCHASE A PRODUCT-85% of America HAD HEALTH INSURANCE, WHY DO I HAVE TO SUFFER for 15% of AMERICA??? Why couldn’t Congress address the 15% uninsured ONLY)

        “Dow is at an all time high.” Yes, BUT AGAIN AT WHAT COST???? You seem to be lacking in answers with FACTS to support your answers. Making the statement doesn’t make it TRUTH.
        THIS economy is just as fragile as it was in 2008, thus the stagnant growth. Housing regeneration is based on the hopes that the Banks don’t open the flood gates on all the foreclosures they are holding onto. At some point the Banks are going to want to recoup their losses too…..as was the case recently in Las Vegas, the banks flooded the market and prices went backdown.
        Syria is still a factor, gas prices are still fluctuating and higher than they were in 09. There will be another bust because you cannot print your way by QE out of debt. The Weimar Republic was proof of that.

        “The economy has shifted.” Yup, my dollar doesn’t go as far as it did three years ago.

        “There are 1,000s of job opening in technical and medical fields, Americans aren’t trained to fill them. .” Benefting us HOW????? And what happens when those jobs are filled?????
        [Give you a hint.......it is EXACTLY the same method that links to the economy.......it is called SUPPLY AND DEMAND.......]
        but like the unaffordable Healthcare Tax IMPOSED UPON US; Government is now going to DICTATE WHICH JOBS people are to TRAIN FOR AND work in?????
        Why…that’s….that’s soooo COMMUNISTIC of you Comrade mikeledo…..does your Government also CONTROL hours of work????? Dohhhh!!!! Sorry, already doing that with changing Full-Time employment from 40 hours to 30 hours AND dictating to private employers what benefits they will offer out of FAIRNESS……meaning Government DICTATES how much PROFIT a business owner can keep.
        “I have health insurance. All my changes have been for the better,”

        You tell me what the cost is and why it isn’t beneficial. America needs a complex training program and we need to rebuild our infrastructure at a cost of 1.5 trillion dollars. You don’t have to print your way out of debt, you let inflation take care of it. When you compare the rate of inflation to the cost of borrowing, it is to our advantage to borrow NOW and create the debt. Most people can’t see that, especially the T-Party folks.

      • http://theawakenednation.ning.com/profile/KevinMKeener Snowman8wa

        So you have no concept or realization to the “Cost”, it isn’t necessarily budgetary and apparently you fail to understand inflation and the cost of borrowing. Why is it to OUR advantage to borrow more money? Do you understand definition of “The Lost Decade” and the results thereof.

        What happens when you borrow to the point that the payables is greater than the receivables? What then????? AT WHAT COST????? What is your answer to rising interest rates????? Do you think our economy will rebound with 0.00% interest rates????? WHAT THEN???? Kensian economics does not work…..

    He’s right in one sense. It’s April of 1775 all over again. Each must ask him/her self Patrick Henry’s eternal question “Is life so dear of peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?” and prepare to act on the answer. Those who are unwilling to kill and die to defend their rights, freedoms an property will surely and deservedly lose them. It’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees. Semper Fi!

      I saw a great movie last night called Defiance. It was a true story about some Jews in Russia after the Germans invaded, and who hid in the forest to fight, rather than give up and be killed or be slaves. Some died there, but, most lived, and 2 of 4 brothers got to New York later.
      The name of the family that led the fight was Bielski.
      See the movie. If your resolve needs strengthening in the face of what we are seeing, or what we may have to do, this will show you what a few can do in the face of great odds.

        Steve, my posts have nothing to do with the elite, the mongrels or the corrupt! One of the most corrupt is from WY and that displeases me; unfortunately, he got back in due to, what I heard out of Cheyenne, there was not a strong enough candidate running against him. We need a smaller government and we need that government to be By the People, For the People! Somewhere there is a misunderstanding..I am a true, blue Patriot and if my blood spills with the coming Revolution, winning is the goal. of us all to take our nation back.

  • Freedomforall

    No. Harkin is wrong. When a government becomes ineffective: Congress unable to get anything done except along party lines and a president (a fraudulent one at that who is combatant and an enemy to this nation) refuses to work with Congress and in particular the minority party because of his blatant disdain for said party, then it is up the Americans (per our Founding Fathers) to revolt and establish a civil war, if necessary to overthrow said corrupt government and start over. This is the most corrupt government with an equally corrupt WH occupier (I refuse to dignify obama by calling him president). It is time for a civil war, revolution or better yet states to secede from this disunion!

It makes me tear up when I think of what our children, g.children and all future generations will face if we do not get this cleaned up before it is truly too late. I remember beautiful clear skies at night and the gorgeous stars and planets, we Native Americans believe some of those stars, to others, are our ancestors looking down upon us, checking how we are doing; I remember the time we were free to worship as we pleased, to visit, to teach our children what is moral and right, when both parents did not have to work…good ole memories huh?

      • mathis1689

        We do have good memories indeed. I well remember growing up without worrying about anything except being a kid and doing things that kids today can’t even remotely understand because they can’t get their heads out of a video game. Some of my ancestors died on the Trail of Tears and I learned some of their beliefs as well in my later years. Like you I tremble for the future of this country when as Thomas Jefferson so well said I remember that God is just. It’s up to us to as someone else said trust in the Lord and keep our powder dry.

        The leader is the one who gets the credit. If you don’t believe that, just ask any enlisted person who was a part of the troops who accomplished something good. Sure, the guy with the “scrambled eggs” gets the credit, but we can live with ourselves just knowing that “we” are the ones who really sacrificed for our country. We don’t need credit, because we did it for country, not glory.

      • Clint

        Buzz, If you will look at your post that I replied to, you will find that you are the one who said something about giving credit. If I were so insecure that I required credit for something I accomplished, I would still be, 49 years later, sitting in the maternity waiting room at the birth of my number 1 son, hoping for someone to slap me on the back. I grew up a long time ago and I don’t need credit but from one source and that source is the Lord God. When He says, “well done, my good and faithful servant”, that will be all I need to hear. Farewell and God bless.

        Clint, What I said was, We the People do not need Credit! It is our country and it is something we do for our country according to our God given talents; like you, I do not need credit from anyone; with that said, however, I do believe when someone(s) like Cruz, Lee, Paul and Session go out on the limb they did and take the BS from the RINOS especially, credit is due as part of supporting them in what they are trying to do to help We The People, (in their positions), and therefore the country that we are trying to help.
        The Lord, our Lord, knows our hearts and that is good enough for me.

    Senator Harkin is wrong. This issue has roots there long before the TEA Party. Indeed, the TEA Party is not a Republican or Conservative group. It is an American Group that has been supported by the Conservatives that make up a strong element of the Republican Party. However there are many in the TEA Party that are not Conservatives or Republican, they are Democrats and Independents. Senator Harkin is a fossil with no business speaking ill of a strong American like Senator Cruz. He cannot hold the reins for Cruz. Cruz is the future of real American Patriots. Harkin is just a waste of space.

    • Buzz

      Harkin just wants to feel he is as good as Cruz so he picks on him and the other three. He is one that has to tell himself constantly, “I am good, I do no wrong, my halo is not tarnished.” Creep!

        Another group is going to DC after the truckers. The following month some other group is descending on Washington. The article was on Freedom Outpost today.

        Mary! Thanks a bunch for your reply! Appreciate it! The group is all Patriots that can go! It is scheduled for Nove 19 just a few days before Thanksgiving; There are Patriot groups calling for the start of a Revolution, not a Civil War this time due to what Kerry just did. I do not truly know what is reality but I believe the UN has no business in the USA under any circumstance. Russia does not comply with their demands always and that is why Iran pulled out of the UN; we should be out too, one time I heard we fund the terrorist countries through the UN with about six billion dollars; another came forward and said that was not the “reality” it was closer to 21 million to give to those countries that want to wipe us off the map. What are we doing funding terrorist countries anyway and that is against the Constitution if memory serves a full plate..sometimes at age 70, it does not.

Personally, if we cleaned house in D.C … most of the potential flash points down the road could be averted.

    to comments.Comrade Atkins Admits Communist Infiltration of Democratic Party
    new zeal ^ | 11/9/10 | Trevor Loudon

    Posted on Tuesday, November 09, 2010 7:56:47 PM by Nachum

    This blog has long contended that the Communist Party USA and other Marxist groups have heavily infiltrated the Democratic Party.

    This has enabled the Communist Party to both influence Democratic Party policy and to choose and promote Democratic candidates at all levels.

    Writing on the Party website Political Affairs, comrade C.J. Atkins admits that Communists indeed do work inside the Democratic Party, including on state level policy committees.

    Comrade Atkins also admits that Party members work in in Democratic-aligned organizations including Organize for America, Progressive Democrats of America, the Campaign for America’s Future or the New York Working Families Party.

    The context here is that Atkins believes that the Party is stigmatized by the “communist” label and should drop the name, in order to more easily and effectively work through the Democrats and other “mainstream” organizations.

    Forces on the progressive left must organize as currents within the orbit of the Democratic Party, but as elements separate from it. This is the stance taken by the organized labor movement. And, if the CPUSA is honest with itself, we would see that this is an approach which we have already taken for quite some time as well. Our members participate in the Democratic primary process at the local level, volunteer in GOTV (Get Out The Vote) efforts, and many take part in the platform-drafting process in their local Democratic committees. More participate in Democratic-aligned outfits such as Organize for America, Progressive Democrats of America, or the Campaign for America’s Future.

    However, by not formally affiliating with the Democratic Party organizationally (though many members do individually), the CPUSA and some of these other left formations are able to maintain the independence that allows them to join in the mass coalition efforts to defeat the ultra right without endorsing or accepting the corporate influence and control that prevails among too many top Democratic policy-makers.

    All of this is to say, we have to consider the possibility that our current practice, which is broadly in agreement with the understanding of political independence summarized above, may not best be served by our continued adherence to a specifically party-type of organization. I would suggest that we ponder whether it may be appropriate to drop not only the “communist” half of our title, but the “party” half as well.

    It is my belief that we could be more effectual operating as a socialist and working-class political organization which does not present itself as a “party” as such. By doing so, we could eliminate the ambiguities and confusion which sometimes arises when CPUSA members run as Democratic or independent candidates. Our members can freely participate in the Democratic Party process, with the Working Families Party or other independent political formations, etc. as appropriate to the circumstances and in accordance with collective judgment of the situation. The details of what such an organization would look like would of course have to be discussed in greater detail by the party as a whole, but it is a transformation worth considering.

    So as should be clear, this article is both a call for change as well as a suggestion for the codification of existing practice. The CPUSA has done much to renew itself and join the 21st century. It is now time to move forward with this process and remove any obstacles that still stand in the way of fully participating in the broad democratic upsurge of our times. We are living in an era of change and must do everything to make sure we stay in tune with the movement of history.

    The Communist Party USA works closely with the Communist parties of Cuba, China, Russia, and with many Latin America, Africa and Asia.

    It’s loyalties do not lie with the United States of America, but with a re-energized and growing international communist movement.

    The fact that the Communist Party USA has heavily infiltrated the Party of President Barack Obama, a man the Communists call a “friend” should be very big news.

    Why isn’t it?

There must be some place in the Nevada desert that would be great for building an Congressional convalescent center open to the retirees of the House and the Senate who have denied their own interests and served with such distinction.

      …ALSO, a few other items will need to be defined, such as Natural Born Citizen, the proper use of Executive Orders, treason, etc., and many of the Departments, Agencies, and Pet Projects will need to be shut down…
      …IF NOTHING else, this president has shown us where the “weak points” are in our Constitution when our leadership does not have the country’s best interests at heart…

      • Clint

        The weak points are not in our Constitution. The weak points are in the men and women whom we choose to represent “we the people”, nothing more, nothing less. It is not a fault of the Constitution and the founding fathers, the fault can be lain at the feet of the weak, progressive, go along to get along Rinos and Dinos we have elected to office. Think about it. Whatever happened to the idea of a man or woman of either party running for office for the good of ALL of the citizens of the USA regardless of party. A patriot is one who puts the welfare of our nation above his or her own welfare. Unfortunately, we have very few true patriots in government today. This reminds me of the early years in the land of Canaan for the Jewish people. Against God’s will, every man did what was right in his own eyes. That sure sounds like modern day America, does it not?

      • southern tom

        …I AGREE with your points, Clint, but the writers of the Constitution assumed, and Franklin even spoke of it, that the citizenry would need to be well informed and of good moral character… since the country as a whole is lacking in both categories, a few things need to be more thoroughly defined… the Commerce Clause comes immediately to mind, as a significant portion of every leftward shift came through this clause… LITTLE THINGS, but they are apparently needed, as we have witnessed over the past 40 years… especially so these past 5…

      • Clint

        Southern Tom, I perceive you to be sincere in what you are saying and advocating. Correct me if I am wrong, in your opinion, because the country as a whole is lacking at being well informed and of good moral character, we, as a nation and people who live by and honor the U.S. Constitution should “dumb down” the Constitution by adding to or taking away from, those pesky little things in our Constitution, that our founders deemed essential to the good governance of this country called America, all because there are a minority of our citizens, for whatever reason, are not well informed and of good moral character. That, to me sir, seems to be a surrendering of America’s values to such a degree that our forefathers would rise up and smack us, if only they could. No thanks, I’ll pass.

        Last line is very insightful Tom. Just great . An optimistic way to view what this traitor has been doing to (TO , not for) this country.

  • wright2665

    Thank God for people like senator Cruz and others who are standing up for basic values and sanity. The government cannot continue on its reckless path without dire consequences. 17 trillion in debt alone can never be paid back. At some point in the future the bell will toll and the piper will have to be paid. The nightmare known as Obamacare, by itself, has the potential to cripple and disable the entire American economy. Does health care need to be reformed? Of course! However when you have one ideologically bent party, the democratic/progressive/socialist group who rant and rave and call those who have different ideas … dangerous, war mongers etc. you have the recipe for a full blown breakdown of all that holds us together as a nation. That we continue to tolerate this insanity , “You have to pass the bill first to see what is in it” ((Diane Feinstein) …something serious is wrong. Once upon a time (before the election of the “Great American Destroyer – Barack “Hussein” Obama) in America … both parties would come together to work out a solution that benefited all Americans … give and take, compromise … and eventually a plan that had positive elements from both sides . That doesn’t occur anymore in America. No, the “unpresident” would rather sit down with an Iranian president (murderer, terrorist etc.) than sit down with Republicans. Shame on him and G*!!#*M him to H…l !

    • Clint

      You were good until that last sentence. I don’t want anyone, including Obama, G-D’d to hell. Jesus Christ came to seek and save that which is lost. Those you condemned are the ones the Lord came to seek and save. Until Jesus/Yeshua gives up on them, I will not. If you disagree, there is no reason to reply.

      • disqus_Ed8LYkU7q2

        Yes, I want the obamination damned to where he belongs! Damned to Hell!

      • flawshark

        uh… what am I missing here? I was told that’s where he came from.

  • Randy

    Harkin is trying to kiss Obama’s butt so bad he is crying like a baby over it and making him look like a major fool .

  • Archangel

    Let this Socialist/Communist Democrat rail and run his mouth! They’re angry because they realize that Ted Cruz accomplished the effect he desired, he got the attention of the American people!

    It was a brilliant and valiant effort led by Ted Cruz to Fight to defund Obama Care, and when this disaster comes to fruition, which it eventuallt will, everyone will now know exactly, without any doubt, who is responsible for the ensuing debacle.

    Cruz, Lee, Rubio, Paul, etc. all look like folk hero’s for defending their fellow American’s Liberty and
    Freedom from this onslaught of Socialism! Vladimir Lenin stated: “Socialized Medicine is the Keystone to the Arch of the Socialist State”!

    Much akin to the likes of Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and William Travis defending the Alamo against
    Santa Anna; these outstanding American Senators knew they couldn’t win, they knew they were going to lose, but like True American’s they stood and fought it out for their fellow American’s Liberty and Freedom!

    Remember this well my fellow American Patriot’s when the next election rolls around!

    Your vote does count!

  • Sandy Henderson

    I applaud Ted Cruz. Those who rail against him are really afraid of what he is saying. They know they don’t have the guts to agree with him because that would make them look bad in obama’s eyes. And goodness, we all know how they want to keep obama happy. Frankly, I don’t care if they are happy or not. I want politicians who will defend the Constitution, The Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence. I want politicians who will do the job we elected and pay them to do.

They will not be getting my vote in 2014, hopefully in each state you will look to see what your senators voted for and let them know

  • hibp

    Let me see ignoring, lying about and blatantly disobeying the constitution, putting America into “unsustainable’ debt that IS GOING TO IMPLODE – it’s just a matter of time – leaving our military and public servants in the field ‘to die’ and then lying about it (this is a FACT – tapes all over with Hilary and obama saying the attack was caused by a ‘video’). I could go on and on. And WHO is being called dangerous – people who want to obey laws, believe in working hard and helping those TRULY in need, people who want the focus on creating JOBS , people who want to cherish and preserve our great republic. THIS MAN SHOULD LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND SEE WHO IS DANGEROUS!!!!!!!!!!! .

    You can count on 1 hand the number of people in Washington worth saving if a catastrophe (natural or man-made) was to hit D.C.

  • AB101

    Obama really wants this to cause civil unrest and then into pure rebellion. Once this happens he can invoke Marshal Law. Once he has declared Marshal Law he can have 100 % control of the population in the US. Under Marshal Law all your rights are out the window. You will have none-yes-none. We really are very close to giving him what he so desires. Is this what you want.

    • mtmountainman

      Bring it on because most of the military and general population will stand against the Communist infiltrators. Let’s get it over with instead of delaying the inevitable.

    • jalina susan stutte

      I chat with a person in Egypt and he says we need to stand up against our government as they did. They hate Obama and his administration for putting the muslim brotherhood which are terrorists in position there. But they love the American people and know the majority of us do not stand with Obama and feels are election was stolen.

      • AB101

        I thank a lot of Americans feel the same way. I think most Americans feel there is nothing we can do about it. The truth is that, the power of our vote in 2014 can and will determine what type of Country this will be for years to come. Lord Bless us all.

  • PatCindyCunningham

    Just another useful Idiot. Certain Democrats who are either to old or shoe in’s for being reelected are picked to say outlandish things about certain Republicans. it has been going on for a long time. Harkin is an old foolish Man who either is ready to retire or isn’t do up for reelection. he is probably one of the reasons the State of Iowa has Gay Marriage.

    Liberal Puppets figure if they keep saying something long enough Citizens will believe it. That is exactly how they moved the Gay Marriage Debate. People just got tired of hearing it. This isn’t that easy. This is costing People jobs and incomes. This is a fight Democrats can’t win. Civil War? Now That is the only thing I will agree with him on.

  • Gregory Tbd

    That small group of men and women foisting their ideas are the liberals that don’t listen to the voters but rely on a political machine that lubricates mainslime media which panders to low information voters. All Cruz is doing is what his constituency is asking him to and it’s getting noticed. As for the rest of you in congress, you are on notice by the American people and under the direction of the Constitutional!

  • oleinwi

    They want a civil war, or least the guise of one, so Obama can enact all those executive orders and take complete control. Remember, they have to make the first move, but when they do, we will defend our freedoms with as much vigor and resolve as all past generations have. They better be careful what they wish for.

    • cimiron

      I agree, even if I am old and can’t defend myself, I will die believing in our constitution, bill of rights and God

  • Gregory Tbd

  • cimiron

    Cruz was our hero, and still is. I would vote for him in a second

  • Bteri

    Harkin believing he has the moral high ground when he comes from a political party that hijacked 20% of the economy passing through a fishy reconciliation process filled with secret deals and kickbacks, the most substantial partisan legislation in our country’s history.

    This bill is an ill-conceived piece of garbage that as its implemented is actually hurting more people, hurting more businesses than anyone ever thought. This law will never accomplish its goal of providing healthcare for all — at best it will provide health INSURANCE for all…but healthCARE? not a chance with the Federal govt involved there is ZERO chance this will improve care or will be handled well, fairly or effiiciently.

    Anyone here see the Federal govt holding back on transplants and chemo and hip replacements if a Democrat is in office and your records show you are conservative? Hey Obamacare is being managed by the IRS……. Who will be the next criminal? The next Lois Lerner for the Obama administration?

    • disqus_Ed8LYkU7q2

      • Alexis

        It will most likely be ok with the Dem’s face euthanasia in their future because, it looks pretty obvious that most cannot see past the vote buying scandle their obama phone and free insurance lead them to vote for someone that is sinking the country in debt.

        They cant see that bailing out failing businesses (Solyndra) & cities (Detroit)

  • Rachel Guess

    • RescueKyron

      A bit more definition. Putin is RED. Russians are Red Commies. O was raised by his commie mommie and commie gpts to be and think like a commie. O was a target searched for by neoconzionistcommies for years, discovered and selected him, groomed, developed, guided and put him in IL and Oval Office. Here’s the prob. Russian Commies hate neoconzionistcommies and Putin has at least one in prison for crimes against the country -money crimes, and the prisoner is one of the top richest people in the country. Israel is trying to get him released, as they are trying to get our Federal Prisoner released who is a Jew who stole secrets from us and gave them to Israel. Pollard. Remember that name, they are counting on O now to release him… none of our previous presidents would release him. Hoping O will be begging his pal Israel to fight for his release from the Fed Pen we will put him in after his trial proving he is a traitor.

  • DrBillLemoine

    No, it takes more than about 40 rebel congressionals to make war. But the loose lips and destructive aims must go as un-American. One needs to retreat to Canada stopping his terrorista tactics. Several need to retreat to their isolated caves. A few, to their supremacist enclaves. And some, to their antebellum roots. Plus right leaning officials must grow up and grow a backbone. We’ll see what develops as these traitors and terrorists act out their charade the next 7 weeks.

    The Democrats and their socialist friends in the media have really demonized the Tea Party.

        Contact friends and relatives in those liars States and be sure they know how their staff lied to callers saying they would vote to Defund and vote against Cloture which would put power in Reid’s hands to service O with his commie agenda.

      • RescueKyron

        My friends, relatives along with us, in several States, called every Republican Senator yesterday. Every office that had a staff speak with us confirmed the Senator was against the govt takeover of our medicine and would vote to defund and vote against Cloture. Exception was one staff who said the Senator had not yet said how he will vote. That SOB was Wicker. Read his Wikipedia page. Sleaze. Our calls that were automatically forwarded to answering machines received our DEFUND and DESTROY message with Reject Cloture that puts power in Reid’s hands to go around us. Surprisingly Lindsey Graham’s answering machine gave exact details on his position and that he would vote to defund, and would not vote for Cloture, and that he was against the Obamacare. None of us bothered to call McCain. Leave him alone and maybe he will get the message ha. Fuggedaboud him. Some calls met with Sorry that extension is full and not accepting calls which happened with several of these jerks. Johanns office was assuring that he would vote to defund and would vote against cloture. Having relatives in NE and knowing how many Nebraskans feel about this BS, it’s a fair bet that Johanns and his staff should start looking for other jobs… it will take time, there’s a jungle out there. Anyway, all the Repubs heard from several callers yesterday demanding destruction of this MurderOfAmericans. Call it what it is. Work to dump every one of these traitors to our country. Replace, however, with active Christians and if THEY prove to be liars like these freaks, we can and will stagehook THEM. In time, they will get the message of who they are working for. Patience, dilligence, and we will get politicians dedicated to keeping their Oaths and dedicated to the sovereignty of the USA, not to our destruction.

That those desires would trample over 90% of us to leave them as “supreme beings”! I believe we must have IMPEACHMENTS AND TRIALS FOR TREASON AND WE UST HAVE THEM SOON!

      Yes. Soon.

    • ActualConundrum

      All other first world countries have abandoned this archiac directive (fourteenth amendment) of born here making you a citizen. The nation building amendment is not needed anymore. Even Canada no longer adheres to this outdated law. There are people working on retireing this ridiculous law. At least I hope they still are, it is inane. And they need to be more picky about naturalization. People confuse jus solei citizenship (born here of foreigners) with natural born citizenship. Natural born citizen requires no law, it happens naturally with two citizen parents .

    Contempt doesnt even come close to what I feel about Harkin and his progressive ilk. We all know what devisive lying a….holes they are, and their agenda would place the US directly on a collision course with financial collapse, and they know it too, but they sit there and try to hang their country killing title on the few politicians with the courage to fight for whats right and for whats good for this country.

    • RescueKyron

      We’ve always had the minority in fights for freedom and justice. The Red Coats outnumbered us then… and the NeoconZionistCommies are little, ugly, mean, jealous, dull creatures… especially their females -so murderously ugly, are infested in all of our agencies and country now and outnumber us in power. Americans are wonderful, peace loving, smart, inventive and beautiful people in heart mind and soul and will crush the devils who are working to destroy all good things in our country. The Americans Are Coming.

  • frankenbiker

    Cruz, and Lee, and a few others are a threat to DC’s business as usual status. I’m all for the Tea Party, and hope they can clean house in 2014, but with the established RINO’S in the house and senate, it’ll be a hard road that may take years to unfold, but, the American people are getting tired of the RINO’S version of compromising with demoncraps and getting nothing in return.

    • RescueKyron

      Remove the RINOs first. Elect only active Christians. If they are liars they are easier to remove because they would be rejected by dedicated Christians and have no network like the non-Christians have. McCain is the first that must be removed, and his Flaky Flake will fold on “it’s” own. Graham is shaking with fear and is an easy turn around. Tell him how to vote to keep his job and no more waltzing with McCain. We are soooo lucky to have good men standing in our government now. Cruz and Lee, Sessions, Poe, many of them who have stood strong against the Commies. Too many to list here but grateful for each and every one. btw Wicker is another who needs to get the boot in the first round along with Harky Harkin.

      • LastNameFirst

        I only gave you a thumbs down because you included Sessions. He refused to sign the pledge to defend the 2nd Amendment, and therefore he does not support the Constitution as it is written, by God fearing Christian men who were very thought in the making of this document.

      • RescueKyron

        Thanks for the explanation. Do you mean Jeff Sessions of AL? There is another Sessions, Representative, Texas. Please confirm… I was not aware that Jeff Sessions would do something so destructive. Jeff supported Ted Cruz by speaking during Cruz’ Filibuster. btw, I like your User Name…. IS your last name “First” ? funny, like Abbott&Costello’s Whose On First.

      • LastNameFirst

        I would have to research it again. I think it was on NumbersUSA hat I got the info. They provide an entire list of ALL members of Congress that do things against the Constitution and so forth. They also keep a report card on all members of Congress. A pretty good site IMO.
        Funny about the Abbott & Costello, but no. I am 20 years retired Army, and all forms are filled out last name first, so I thought it might work.

      • TruthDetector

        Actually, that would be the “Whose Who’s On First” routine.

        Maybe you misunderstood… ?

  • catman

    Just another “Dimwitocrat” who wants to keep the status quo in the land of corruption. This guy is old enough to retire so let’s hope the voters retire him in ’14. He probably has his nose so far up ubumasses sphincter he can’t see the world is going to hell in a hand basket and we are going to go with it if we don’t change Washington D.C. and damned soon.

    • RescueKyron

      Right. One concession IMO is he is part of it. He knows and is helping heartily. Ever see his wifie? OMG no wonder he is such a wimp. Check her out, she has been working with the ilk for years and he is taking her/their orders.

  • tom cook

    Harkin looks like a little dried dog turd and should be eliminated from our government for he is so completely demented with liberal garbage that he is not functional as a human being. He is fecal.

    • Kent2012

      you are right tom and so is the twit democommie, it is getting close to the flash point…..the
      mental midgets that sometimes troll over here from the huffy puffy posty
      make wise comments such as “oh yea and you are going to stop the
      Army”….listen up clowns, we do not need to “stop” the Army or the
      Marines or the Navy….all our efforts will be to …….and then we
      will……once that is done there will be no need to “stop”, we will be
      joined with the military and the USA will once again be ordered by good,
      not perverted communist clowns…..

    Abraham Lincoln Obama is focused on America’s destruction and ‘fundamental change’ which can only equate into promoting anarchism or civil war. This interloper fake president and his handlers are committed to wreaking racial and class warfare throughout the United States. If not for Mr. Putin, our country would already be embroiled in another mid east war which would have resulted in terrorists acts within our borders.

    This is just what obama’s Islamic masters in terhan want to happen. I’m sure their propagandist will try to blame it on someone else.

  • raynbene

    This moron is responsible for much leftist legislation, and this very un-Senator-like rant, along with his equally clueless cohort, mikulski, just prove who these creeps really are. I always thought Iowans were the reliable patriots who you could count on to send good folks to DC, but I must adjust my thinking . . .
    I really can’t understand why harkin, 73 years old, coming from Iowa, growing up in the ’40s and ’50s can be such a lousy socialist ! ! Ronald Reagan warned the country over 50 years ago about what is happening here right now – get ready for more wonderful leftist nonsense ! !

    • marcus johannes

      You are absolutely correct , I too fail to undestand how Iowa can send two DimRats like Tom Harkin and Lisa MurCow Ski to Washington , Just yesterday I watched Ronald Reagan make those comments , Also John Wayne , Where are allthe true Patriots when We The People really need them ???

      • nate forrest

        Lisa Murkowski is from Alaska. Republican Charles Grassley, a conservative, is the other Iowa senator. Please make a note…..

  • grunion

    God how I dislike the automaton mouth pieces pretending to be statesmen and representatives of the people. Hah, what a laugh. We all know who they really care about and the population of our great nation have been reduced to profit centers.

    Anything is better than this but the Constitution is the real plan to implement and when we start standing up for it (the Constitution) count me at the front of the line.

        Yes! And those “old white guys” are just like the ones who wrote our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights! Franklin was in his 70′s!

    When it starts it will get very bad very quickly. In the end the Republic will still stand.

  • ste1021

    The good news is Harkin s retiring. The bad news is the most divisive president in our lifetime will still be around.

  • Charles Temm

    Harkin never was a very sharp type but comparing a government “shutdown” to the Civil War is a bit of overreach you know

    Then again for those who worship at the Church of State, such a tiny check to fed power might be taken as the Apocalypse I guess. The country will go on and if Obama has any brains he’ll really prioritize like Clinton did, what is necessary spending (debt payments and military/legal system payroll) rather than his grandstanding that ObamaCare is the priority.

    • danstewart

      The big difference between obummer & Clinton, is that Clinton is an American, obummer is NOT.

  • Shane

    There is very little cooperation between the parties today; you can’t blame it all on the tea party.

    • rmwayne

      Wrong!! You can blame it on left wing tyrannical scum like Obama, Holder, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the left wing extremists who won’t be happy until they’ve stolen every penny from taxpaying Americans. The Tea Party members are the only ones actually telling it like it is nowadays. And as for these beltway RINOs like McCain and the rest of the spineless, gutless neocon Republicans, they’re just as much the enemy as the Democrats to American citizens.

      • marcus johannes

        I would have to agree with you 110% ,But you forgot Dianne ( The Fascist ) Feinstein , Chuck Schumer , Debbie Wasserman Schultz , I live in Southern Arizona ,You mention John McCain , We no longer call him John ( The Traitor ) McShame , Now it is Juan ( The RINO Traitor ) McBama

  • marcus johannes

    Senator Tom Harkin , Member of The Communist Party formerely known as the Democrats , He did forget to mention that it is his own Communist Party that is Intent on destroying our Constitution ,Bill of Rights and eventually this Country , Tom Harkin needs to remember History , When King George of England pushed The Colonials in America to this point only 5% of the Colonials rose up and sent the British Army packing , Now the Enemy of this Country is withing our Own Borders , 25 Million illegal aliens including Omar Obama ,Aunt Zituni Obama and Comrade Chairman Obama himself , Communists in Congress cleverly disguised as Progressives as if We The People don`t know what that is ?? The Radical Racists and Leftists otherwise collectively known as Obamites , I believe if the Communist Party continues to carry out their Radical Agenda of Destroying our Country ,They may end up getting what they wan`t , The difference is that this time it will be nearly half the Country and not just 5% , Tom Harkin and The Communist Party formerely known as The Democrats are Liberals and in typical Liberal Fassion do not see the big picture or understand the Consequences of their actions , Continue to attack our Constitution and Bill of Rights and they may get what they desire ,Politicians are the lowest form of Life on Earth , Liberal Democrats are the Lowest Form of Politicians , General George S.Patton , Hello & Greetings to the NSA and DHS

      Would give you the highest count of thumbs up ever on this site.

  • Tom Townsend II

    Harkin should have gotten the point from his Civil War discourse. The fact is, he is right about the dangers, but he got the wrong war and has picked the wrong side of the issues, just as so many other tyranny supporting criminals in Obama’s regime are doing. Yes things are dangerous in the USA today, and so long as criminality, self-interests, the interests of the enemies of our republic and tyranny continue to rule over the free citizens of this nation; both in what used to be our government and through their and the White House’s collusion with our enemies and the UN, it is only going to get worse. So get a clue Harkin, and all the rest of you in office for that matter. We Americans are a determinedly free and hardy people.

  • James

    How and where can one get information as to the best country to retire to , I can no longer
    take whats happening to this country. I heard Beleze is an english speaking land and is
    still free.

    • DetroitRock

      I have often wondered about that to James. But, as i understand it, Belize is owned by a Muslim. So, I don’t think I’d be going there.
      I’ve looked at Ireland, but it doesn’t appear that firearms are allowed, so that’s a no for me to. So far the only “suitable” places for me anyway, seem to be Island nations.

  • MontieR

    “a small group of willful men and women who have a certain ideology” and “have been able to take over the congressional budget debate in the last week. “Since they can’t get their way,” Is a PERFECT description of the democrats that would rather shut the government down than admit oblundercare is the disaster it is.

    • pudintain

      I thought the same thing! Talking about themselves!!!!

  • Pablo Descartes

    He is correct on the United States of America being at the point of civil war.

  • Brad Bryant

    Rubio may swing with the RINO’s sometimes but he is starting to get some backbone because of the leadership of Cruz, Lee and Paul.

  • LetzBReal

    The level of rhetoric on the left vilifying and demonizing the TEA Party has almost reached that of Nazi Germany that stirred up murderous hatred toward the Jews. We have left the God of our ancestors and gone insane. The rise of the Antichrist could be just around the corner.

    It is now way beyond obvious that the Tea Party has up rooted the progressive Democrats. If and when there is a civil war it won`t be Lincolns type of civil war citizens against citizens it will be we the people against the 535, no need to fight citizens just cut the head off and the rest will die.

  • f8tule

    if wanting to protect our freedom is extreme, then me and most of my friends are Freedom extremists… it’s really simple like that.. Patriots are Terrorists now, and the real terrorists are freedom fighters, or are they are “normal, peace-loving people”..

    If you are not of God, then you are of Lucifer.. How difficult is that to understand??

  • Buzz

    This is off subject, sorry! Just please bear with me for a little bit; government is now on a kick that man is causing the “warming,” you know how the cows were causing global warming in 2009 because they exhaled! Well, just think of this..make your own minds up: We have had weather modification since 1999 at least; it was put together in 92 by the UsAF; they spray chemicals night and day, 24/7. Now this has been increasing, according to the Weather channel in the last few years. Any relationship? I bet so. I do not think you put all the metal in the skies without changing the ions/atoms, neutrons/protons..how does that affect the “natural” of our climate? Then they put barium, stronthium, arsenic and aluminum plus at least another 15 different ones, mix them together on a daily basis and spray..with the amounts they are using, (too great for humans/fowl/animals and flora), to do this, it would seem to this old lady that there is a relationship and the government is spinning the truth..yes, it is caused by humans, but it is caused by weather modification and HAARP. TY, now I will sign off and go watch the insides of my eyelids. Have a good week, all of you!

  • pudintain

    Harkin is Barkin’ and these Libtards are causing this revolution! Civil war is a pox on us by our Great Dicktaster Barry-O and his THUGS armed with enough weapons and ammunition to wage the greatest civil war in history. Take our guns? NEVER… These Socialist, Fascist, Red Diaper Gang are on the run from the uprising of true Patriots that will not stand for the fall of Liberty in this once great land of peace, progress and prosparity!
