Mark Levin says Boehner’s Plan B is exactly wrong, despite what Krauthammer allegedly said tonight, that we have to fight these Marxist class warfare labels and the propaganda and raising taxes on millionaires is buying into it. He says Beohner should take his idea and lower the bottom 3 rates, leaving the top 2 rates where they are, and tell the American people they lowered taxes and go home.

    I love Levin, but he has yet to say what really and truly needs to be said. That the Republican Party is a “dead man walking.” They are just another branch of the Government Party. It is more than time to kick them all out along with the other branch of the Government Party.

    That Krauthammer is part and parcel of the establishment is beyond denying. Just as is George Will and all the other “talking heads,” none of whom has ever run a business, or run for political office, or made any contribution whatsoever to the greatness of our country. They are just as much parasites as the permanent political class.

    The only saving grace is that they speak only to those who are politically engaged to a high degree. That number is not in the millions. Their influence is only among the political parasites inhabiting our government. Levin has a larger audience than any of the cable channels. It is only through his show, and the other national talk shows, that anyone ever hears anything these weasels have to say.

    Levin, and the rest, should stop quoting them and giving them an audience. They would shrivel up and disappear.

    It is well past the time for a grassroots conservative party made up of, and backed by, We The People. And well past the time for Mark Levin to get out in front. Stop pussy-footing around, Mr. Levin, the handwriting has been on the wall for decades.

    Throw them all out! The status quo must go!

        AmborninCan … I have been aware of the Constitutional Freedom Party for some time.

        As it stands right now, I do not see their “muscle.” In the same sense as the TEA Party movement, which was responsible for the tidal wave of 2010, and which appears to be much better organized across the country, locally and statewide.

        Will the TEA Party movement become an official Party? Difficult to say at this stage of the game. For certain, a lot is going to depend on Sarah Palin over the next 2-4 years. As it appears to me, Mrs. Palin is the only one, so far, who has the “servant’s heart,” the sincerity, the charisma, and who resonates with We The People to bring a new constitutional conservative Party into being.

        No matter which Party comes to the fore, such a Party is going to have to coalesce around one, or two, individuals. Someone who will carry the banner into battle, and lead the charge.

        It is a gigantic undertaking, and will require fantastic instincts, the right positions, and pinpoint timing. It is going to take someone who understands that, for We The People to remove the permanent political class, and neutralize the Ministry of Propaganda, it is going to take “sudden and relentless reform.”

        It will also take people like Mark Levin to get behind it and push with all their might.

        Throw them all out! The status quo must go!

          The Constitutional Freedom Party has only been in existance for a month. Give us time. We’re growing in number and with more, will come the muscle. :-) We’re ordinary people sick and tired of elite, career politicians from both sides of the aisle. We can do extraordinary things as we grow.
          I’ve been trying to get attention from Levin and a few others, but until they decide that the 2 party system is broken beyond repair, they won’t pay a whole lot of attention. But that could change.

          • ApplePie101

            Having been part of the Reagan administration, Levin may have a hard time letting go of his nostalgia-tinted view of the republican party. But speaking as one of the disillusioned, if there isn’t a constitutional third party candidate running in 2014, I’ll write one in rather than support one from either the democrat or republican mafia.

            • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

              We’re going to do our best to try and get Constitutional candidates in every state and federal office ApplePie. Good point about Levin. I hope once we grow more some of those folks will have a look at us. Everyone has to start somewhere :-)

          • goldenprez

            AmborninCan … I am certain I saw that website long before one month ago.

            You can try to get the attention of Mr. Levin, but I assure you that is not going to happen until you show your political “muscle.” The TEA Party movement has shown its political “muscle,” in spades. They also have shown that they are fairly well organized, as I pointed out, across the country, at least locally and statewide.

            The TEA Party movement also has quite a number of politically savvy people attached to it. It is not my place to rain on your parade, but you are definitely going to need politically savvy people to accomplish anything. The TEA Party train has left the station and is rolling down the tracks. It is going to take years for your group to even get in position to do anything, and by then it will be way too late.

            I understand where you are coming from, but the aura of political naivete is not going to stand you in good stead. At first blush, it would appear that attempting to do what the TEA Party movement has already done and accomplished in approximately 3 years, while they are moving forward, is counter productive. While I am not suggesting that the TEA Party movement is the be-all and end-all, they are well underway, and stand the best chance of organizing into a formal Party in the next 2 years.

            It is going to be extremely difficult for any new entity to attract someone of the stature of Sarah Palin, who has already attached herself to the TEA Party movement. But that is what it is going to take. Mrs. Palin’s support of TEA Party candidates in 2010 gave them national recognition and publicity that would have cost them millions to buy.

            As I have stated a number of times, I am not privy to Mrs. Palin’s plans. However, I believe that she is working behind the scenes, and under the radar, to bring the TEA Party movement to formalization, in some manner. At the same time, I believe she is positioning herself for an “independent” run for the Presidency.

            Mark Levin has been leaning toward the TEA Party, and I believe he would support such a “third party” movement if Mrs. Palin announced that she is formally affiliating herself with it. However, that is still 1-2 years away.

            Timing is everything.

            Throw them all out! The status quo must go!

            Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

              I understand that. The Tea Party grew out of frustration just as we are. Hopefully we’ll all be working towards getting Constitutional candidates in all States. :-)

              I only posted our Declaration of a new Party the day after the idea was born, on November 18th of last month.

            • http://twitter.com/PuritanD71 PuritanD71

              Looking at http://constfreparty.blogspot.com/ the first post is November 18th so I am unsure of what you may be looking at.

              My reading of the TEA leaves, it would seem that some within this coalition still believe that they can work within the GOP and desire to do so. Unsure as to the “why” behind doing this, but with such a situation the TEA party will just be a loud voice being ignored by the GOP. If the TEA party wants to be an independent party, what is the name? As I have stated previously, there are a lot of Tea party groups which one is the political party? Is it the express? Is it the nation? Is it “THE” teaparty?

              The Constitutional Freedom Party desires to outline a set of beliefs, bringing forth a mission statement and doing their best to inform others.

              Granted, many of us would love to see Mark Levin or Sarah Palin or even a Rush Limbaugh disown the GOP and move to an actual conservative, constitutional party. However, none have done that yet. I think Mark is the closest to jumping ship. We shall see, but we cannot wait on the sidelines in hope that one of these people will start seeing the bigger picture and move on it.

              • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

                Very well said Puritan. Thank you.

        • http://twitter.com/PuritanD71 PuritanD71

          Reading your post, I am wondering if you may have confused the CFP with Constitution Party. I agree that it will take much muscle to move a different party from second tier to the replacement of the GOP.

          The Tea Party is a great start. Yet, we have a more loose confederation of groups within it like 9-12’s and Dick Armey’s group, and others. 2012 election was the time, and there was some good things. Newt is right that the GOP in its current shape cannot win a national election.

          It will take a Mark Levin or even Sarah Palin to bring the needed political clout to a new party, whatever that may be. In the mean time, it is good to look at the similarities and differences that constitutional parties have and start moving in that direction.

          Read up on the CFP at http://constfreparty.blogspot.com/ and even the Constitution Party. The loose confederation of the TEA party will need to move in a similar direction. Just simply googling Tea Party, one finds the teapartyexpress, teapartypatriots, teapartynation. The problem is that this confederation has an ultimate weakness just as the Articles of Confederation, there is no central “Tea Party”. Unless these groups get together and assimilate then we need to invite, challenge these groups to join an actual political party.

    Levin is right on target. Odumbo is all about dividing our nation by socio-economic status and race. He knows that the more he fans the flames of hatred to those ignorant enough to take the bait, the more he can whittle away at our rights and freedoms and even convince people to willingly give them up, so that he can gain more power and do more damage. There should be ZERO tax hikes until we see a budget with serious spending cuts! You want more revenue, Odumbo? Get more people back to work and paying taxes! Reality is Odumbo isn’t stupid, he knows that the more dependent the people are, the more power he can wield over them. It’s pure Marxism, through and through….and the ignorant fools voted for it!

  • Orangeone

    Leave the top 2 alone, lower the next 2 and leave the bottom one alone and remain in session with someone on guard or Obama will do some nastiness during the recess like issue executive orders to ban guns, restrict free speech and appoint Susan Rice as SOS. And yes I’ve been keeping up on Scoop. I think Kerry is a slight of hand maneuver to keep eyes off of Rice.

  • sDee

    Here is one to share with all the mind-numbed lemmings…..they can calculate how much thier taxes will go up after Boehner and Hussein increase taxes just on the “millionaires and billionaires”.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZSKETECBAFDEAUOUML4ICTKLAA Alex

    Maybe by Plan B Boehner was talking about his birth control? He’s definitely in bed with Obama on this.

  • Sober_Thinking

    My Plan A: Fire Boehner.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Agreed!

  • ApplePie101

    Yet when push comes to shove, Levin lines up behind the republican party, supports Romney, supports Rubio, and shoots down any argument for a third party. He does what he accuses Boehner of doing, of throwing away our best bargaining chip. Why would the GOPe take conservatives seriously, when they know they’re going to get their support no matter what they do in congress? Wake up, Mark. Their game is rigged against us, so let’s stop playing their game, and start playing our own.

    • Matt_SE

      Maybe he didn’t know Boehner and co. were as bad as this until after the election. The hijinks seemed to have really taken off from the republican convention and accelerated thereafter. The caving obviously only happened after the election.

      • ApplePie101

        No, Boehner has been a ‘cave-man’ since at least March 2010, when he repeatedly refused to make continuing resolutions for funding contingent on de-funding Obamacare, in spite of strong urging by the Tea Party caucus. In July 2011, he strong-armed conservative members into passing the debt ceiling increase, and delivered Obama an agreement that would have made Nancy Pelosi proud. Do a search on ‘Boehner caves’, and you’ll get pages of results.

        • Matt_SE

          I guess I only started paying close attention at the end of 2011.
          Thanks for the info.

          • ApplePie101

            Yes, I got my wake-up call in March 2010!

    • aposematic

      Did Conservatives really have any other choice for Nov. 6th than get behind the GOP candidate…not if they wanted Obuma out. That is the point of Third Party discussion. This does show without any doubt the need for a Conservative revolt outside of the GOP; inside the GOP Conservatives are indeed taken for granted at best, ignored, and actively refuted. I have suggested the Libertarians, Conservatives, and TP’ers put aside their differences–in the big scheme of what we all will loose, right to private property/wealth, seem mostly petty–and join forces (the Libertarian Party is recognized in 48 States). Such a force would at least get the GOP and possibly the DNC to take notice.

      • http://twitter.com/PuritanD71 PuritanD71

        It is an interesting concept that I agree with. I am concerned about the Libertarian Party and the anarchist side of it. There is a party that just started and resonates with the constitution. You may read more about it at http://constfreparty.blogspot.com/ I agree that there will be a needed funneling of different conservative groups to make it work, the question is what do we rally around and that answer will be interesting.

      Um, supporting Romney as opposed to giving Obama another term? Big deal. That’s being pro-America and trying to save it by not giving it’s enemies quarter, and Levin said he’d oppose Romney in office if he tried anything liberal. Lord knows he was against him in the Primary. I fail to see how he lines up behind the Republicans, gave up their best bargaining chip in fact he seems to do what’s most to advance the conservative movement and fight leftism, or propagates class warfare.
      Lining up behind Romney just shows that he’s sane and those who refused to in the end were playing Obama’s game.

  • Matt_SE

    (One reason) Obama won was because of all the people that get goodies without paying taxes. Why don’t they pay taxes? Because of Fed printing (formerly borrowing) and because they are being subsidized by taxing the rich more.
    If we raise rates on the rich, it will do one or two things:
    1) Further promote marxist class warfare, making the rich an “acceptable” target
    2) Assuming extra revenue is gained, even more middle/lower income people will become subsidized.

    These people live in a bubble and vote for stupid things because they have been shielded from the consequences of their actions. Whether taxes go up or down or make any sense at all doesn’t matter to them…this was obviously done intentionally by the left.

    Conservatives are moaning about the low-information voters and their irresponsibility. Some suggest “changing the culture” over the course of decades.

    You want them to be responsible in an instant? Make them feel the consequences of their actions. What Boehner is doing is the EXACT OPPOSITE!

  • proudhispanicconservative

    The always conservative Paul Ryan is according to sources behind the speaker all the way, he is backing this plan. Sarc

    • aposematic

      What? Oh, Sarc! Paul Ryan’s plan increased spending and with the typical Gov. accounting tricks would not even balance the budget, of which there has not been one for 3+years, until 2040. Don’t even start on reducing the Debt that by 2040 will increase to over $200T if entitlements are not reformed or Obumacare doesn’t eliminate, one way or the other, the need for the current entitlements altogether. So the “always conservative Paul Ryan” is just another Big Gov. Insider in my book. No suprise he would be backing Boehner!

      • proudhispanicconservative

        That is exactly what I meant, I am tired of having Ryan considered a conservative.

  • mikeinidaho

    Boehner is a big government RINO and part of the now-dead Republican Party. I have written my Rep (Labrador) and requested that he vote for extending the Bush tax rates for everyone and then go home. Let the Dems take us over the cliff. Eff ‘em all. I have also requested that he vote against EVERY bill that the Dems propose. Finally, I requested that he not vote to retain Boehner as Speaker next term. Rather, he should vote for any member of the Tea Party coalition instead. It’s time to fish or cut bait. The Tea Party runs things in the Republican Party or we leave the Republicans and start another party NOW.
    Republicans are nothing more than go-along-to-get-along Democrat-Lite weasels. We the People need to take over and fight for what we believe in against EVERYONE who stands in our way. God bless America as We the People begin the fight to take back the Republic from the sleazeballs in DC.

  • bobemakk

    I called Boehners office and complained that he must not agree to raise taxes and do what is right for his constituents and consult with them and that the fiscal cliff is a huge problem for the citizens of this country. We pay enough taxes, no more!!

  • klaffner

    Helloooooo. McFly. Taxes are going to go up January 1. If Obama was asking the House to pass a tax increase, Boehner would laugh in his face. But that isn’t what is happening Anything Boehner can do to mitigate the tax increase is a good thing and he should be supported in his efforts.

  • klaffner

    Levin is always confident but in this case his brain is stuck on stupid. Maybe someone needs to remind him that we lost the Presidential election. Lost big. We lost the ‘tax the rich’ argument. Convincingly lost. Continuing to bleat out Laffer supply side arguments in this environment is asinine. Boehner is doing as much as he can. BTW: Boehner has not agreed to tax increases. He has agreed to tax increases if spending reductions are put on the table. Assuming that does not happen, then Plan B seems perfect. If the house passes Plan B, they can leave town if they want. It puts all the pressure on Obama to sign the legislation to “protect the middle class”

    Then they come back in January. I am more than fine with the sequester cuts going into effect. Then the debt ceiling comes into play. More leverage for the House for more cuts. Imagine a govt shut down with true layoffs and real discontinuance of expenses for a few months. Now that would start to make a dent in the deficit in a real way.
