Judge Napolitano: Republicans Did Opposite Of What They Were Elected For With Fiscal Cliff Bill

  

Judge Napolitano didn’t mince words this morning as he reacted to the vote on Fox and Friends, saying that Republicans “caved” last night, an action that is “churning the acid in the stomach for a lot of us this morning who believe Republicans were elected to shrink government, reduce spending, stop borrowing and lower taxes.”

    The “compromise bill” underscores the proposition that there is, in reality, only one party fighting over which elite faction “controls” the ever-growing big government – as they see fit. It is one factor explaining why Mr. Romney lost the election (i.e., there was little differentiation between Romney and Obama).

    Judge Napolitano needs to run for president….he seems to be about the only honest person on tv

    • rwdodgerblue

      Yes! Either that or get appointed as a Supreme Court judge. Not that there’s a chance of that happening.

  • Wolf-Talker-1

    It is not the job of either party to reduce spending However it their job to increase taxes and grow the government for We the People want Big Government, for we know Big Government will protect us all!

    :
    Obama

    For all the complaints we conservatives have about Speaker John
    Boehner, there can be no denying that we felt a certain camaraderie with him, a
    certain pride that he is on our side, at least in party affiliation, when we
    learned that he told Senate Majority Leader Harry Read to “Go f***
    yourself”–twice–after Harry Reid likened him to a dictator.

    “John Boehner seems to care
    more about keeping his speakership than about keeping the nation on firm
    financial footing,” said Reid, adding that the House was “being operated with a
    dictatorship of the speaker.”

    Politico reported that
    Boehner muttered his awesome rebuke the next day, when Boehner saw Reid at the
    White House.

    “Reid, taken aback, said,
    ‘What are you talking about?’ And Boehner repeated it. Boehner’s office has
    confirmed the validity of these claims, but offered no further comment on the
    matter.”

    For maybe six seconds after
    hearing of this incident, I wanted Boehner to run for president. That quickly
    faded, of course, but it’s still nice to see Boehner have at least some
    backbone, even if in such a way that’s irrelevant to his leadership.

    But whenever a Republican
    does something classless–and I don’t deny it was classless of Boehner to tell
    Reid to self-mate–liberals suddenly become virgin-eared nuns.

    “Go F” was trending on
    Twitter Wednesday morning, with liberals reporting on the matter and then
    editorializing that it was “unprofessional” of Boehner, or saying sarcastically
    that it was “real classy.”

    The Twitter account of NorthDecoder.com wrote, in part, “Republican Civility = Go F__k
    Yourself.” But what, it’s not uncivil for Vice President Joe Biden to call Tea
    Partiers “terrorists”? It’s not uncivil for the President to
    accuse his opponent in his re-election bid of giving women cancer and wanting
    women to die? It’s not uncivil for him to say, “If they bring a knife to the
    fight, we bring a gun”?

    When President Obama was
    signing his healthcare legislation and Joe Biden muttered loudly into his ear
    and into the microphone, “This is a big f***in’ deal,” liberals thought it was
    the greatest thing they’d ever heard. There was no sniveling from the left
    about Biden’s lack of professionalism.

    The difference is that
    Boehner was not in a congressional session–it was overheard by others, but it
    was still a private conversation. Joe Biden was in a professional environment,
    an official ceremony of sorts. Not that I care either way; I don’t.

    But even more unprofessional and classless than Biden’s BFD moment
    and Boehner’s GFY moment was when Obama’s campaign website decided it prudent
    to sell t-shirts to capitalize on the crassness. The shirts read, “Health Reform Still a BFD.”

    Now if the Republican
    National Committee starts printing and selling t-shirts that read something
    along the lines of “Hey, Reid, GFY!” then I’ll complain about that. But a
    private moment between two individuals? Get over it.

    Subject: Obama

    JANUARY
    2013 – THE FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT

    It
    started when Bill Clinton was famously called “the first black president” – not
    because of his skin color, of course, but because he supposedly exemplified so
    many “black” qualities and attitudes.

    Since
    Barack Obama has been president, he’s been showered with many such accolades –
    most recently when Newsweek crowned him “The First Gay President” for his
    election-year abandonment of his opposition to same-sex marriage. But the elite
    media, to commemorate other Obama affinities and policy positions, have also
    dubbed him “The First Hispanic President,” “The First Asian-American
    President,” “The First Jewish President” – and even “The First Female
    President.”

    But
    there’s one “first” label conspicuously absent from all the media homage paid
    to the 44th president – perhaps, ironically, because there’s more truth to it
    than the press is comfortable admitting – and that’s the title Whistleblower
    confers on Barack Obama in its blockbuster January 2013 issue: “THE FIRST
    MUSLIM PRESIDENT.”

    Barack
    Obama’s relationship with Islam has long been one of the most radioactive
    questions surrounding his presidency. Before the 2008 election, it was
    considered impolite in the extreme even to mention publicly Obama’s middle
    name, “Hussein,” a name given only to Muslim babies. And despite repeated polls
    showing a significant percentage of voters – one in three conservative
    Republicans and almost one in five of all voters – believe the
    president is currently a Muslim, those who dare bring up the issue are
    mercilessly scorned as ignoramuses and bigots.

    Yet,
    there’s a side to Obama’s life, from his Muslim childhood, schooling, Quran
    studies, mosque attendance and prayer in Indonesia, to his bewilderingly
    pro-Muslim policies today as president, that has been carefully concealed from
    the public by the “mainstream media.”

    If
    you’ve wondered why the current U.S. president seems so supportive of the
    Muslim Brotherhood – both in the Arab-Muslim Middle East and, in the form of
    its various front organizations, within America itself – “THE FIRST MUSLIM
    PRESIDENT” will open your eyes.

    Highlights
    of “THE FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT” include:

    “The first Muslim president” by David Kupelian, on why
    an adoring press crowns Obama with every title – except this one

    “Muslim-American author embraces Obama as ‘My Muslim
    President’” – and reveals most Muslims she knows regard Obama as a “Muslim
    brother”

    “U.S. policy defending Shariah – not American citizens”
    by Clare Lopez, in which the 25-year CIA veteran blows the whistle on
    Obama’s brazenly pro-jihad policies

    “Rep. Allen West: Benghazi a result of ‘appeasement’ of
    the Islamic world” – the courageous Florida congressman speaks his mind on
    the president’s pro-Islamist foreign policy

    “Israel policy makes Obama honorary ‘first Muslim
    president’” by Joseph Farah, who asks: “Who has done more to foment and
    support the Middle East Islamist revolution over the last 2 years than
    Barack Obama?”

    “Obama’s Muslim childhood” by Daniel Pipes, in which
    the renowned Islam expert presents overwhelming evidence that the
    president of the United States – who claimed before his election in 2008
    that he was never a Muslim – was indeed “born and raised a Muslim”

    “Obama family busted in Shariah scheme” by Jerome R.
    Corsi, a shocking exposé of how Obama’s extended family is working to
    drive Christianity out of Kenya and replace it with Shariah Islam

    “Obama Mideast policy includes arming jihadists” by
    Aaron Klein, who presents stunning evidence that the White House was
    supporting al-Qaida operatives who ended up killing the U.S. ambassador to
    Libya

    “Why Obama turned on Gadhafi – the surprising reason”
    by Jerome R. Corsi – on the Obama administration’s infatuation with the
    Muslim Brotherhood

    “Under-publicized threat deep in the White House” – in
    which veteran FBI agents disclose that penetration of the U.S. government
    by radical Islamist agents is much worse than previously thought

    “Rogues gallery of terror-tied ‘Muslim civil rights’
    leaders” – a pictorial exposé of the “moderate Muslim civil rights group”
    in the nation’s capital that one FBI agent described as “a turnstile for
    terrorists and their supporters’

    “Manifesto puts Hillary’s top aide in Saudi plot” by
    Art Moore, on how Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s trusted adviser
    Huma Abedin previously worked for her parents’ institute focused on
    establishing an Islamic America

    “What Muslim-Americans really believe” by Joseph Farah,
    on a new scientific poll revealing that most American Muslims oppose the
    most basic principles of the U.S. Constitution

    “Handing Muslim extremists the house keys” by Diana
    West, on why the power-elites don’t want to answer the questions of the
    “Bachmann 5.”

    “No
    matter what you think you already know about Barack Hussein Obama, we guarantee
    you will be shocked by ‘THE FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT,’” said Whistleblower Editor
    David Kupelian.

    SPECIAL
    NEW YEARS OFFER: For a limited time, subscribe to Whistleblower, renew your subscription or give a gift subscription for one year and
    you’ll get $10 off (pay $39.95 instead of the usual $49.95),
    plus you’ll receive two free gifts:

    First,
    you’ll get the ultimate manual for protecting your home and your loved ones,

    Home.”

    important to you – your family, your home, your financial future – then you owe
    it to yourself and your family to read this book.

    Learn how to prepare your family and home for any
    potential disaster – including flood, fire, hurricanes, tornadoes, and
    more.

    Protect against accidents that claim the lives of more
    than 100,000 Americans each year – accidents that the information in this
    book can help you prevent.

    Make your home or apartment more secure – and a less
    attractive target for burglars and home invaders.

    Make your valuables harder to fence or sell – and
    therefore less likely to be stolen.

    Protect your computer data and other personal
    information.

    Second,
    you’ll also receive Whistleblower’s special issue titled “THE FAIRY TALE ECONOMY: Why almost everything you hear
    from government and the media is wrong.”

    The
    jobless rate is down. The stock market is up. Inflation is low. The Fed is
    stimulating the economy through quantitative easing. The recovery is picking up
    steam. Such daily feel-good headlines, created by government and amplified by
    the press, glide pleasantly over our minds and reassure us all is well, or soon
    will be. But what do these headlines actually have to do with reality?

    Often
    very little. The establishment media’s financial reporting is just like their
    reporting on politics and culture – which is to say, biased, inaccurate and
    misleading, sometimes intentionally. So, what are the government, the Fed and
    their media cheerleaders hiding?

    The
    answers are presented in a remarkably clear and compelling way in “THE FAIRY TALE ECONOMY.” (A $7.50 value
    – FREE!)

    EVEN
    BETTER OFFER: Subscribe, renew or give a gift subscription for two years
    and you’ll not only get “SAFE” and “THE FAIRY TALE ECONOMY,” but you’ll also
    get a $10 discount on the already reduced two-year rate ($74.95 instead of the
    usual $84.95).

    These
    special free offers will end without notice and are good in the U.S. only.

    PLEASE
    NOTE: When your Whistleblower subscription is due to expire, you will receive a
    renewal notice from us. To keep Whistleblower coming, do nothing and we’ll
    renew your subscription automatically for the special low price of only $39.95
    by charging your credit or debit card. There’s never any risk, as you may
    cancel at any time for a full refund of the unused portion of your
    subscription.

    If you
    prefer, you may order a single copy of the January 2013 issue, “THE FIRST
    MUSLIM PRESIDENT.”

    I find myself in general agreement with Andrew Napolitano – his arguments are well founded, and both valid and sound. He is a paisano (and I mean that in the best way)!
