Tea Party Patriots Weekly Report From Washington for 8/7/17

CALENDAR:

The House and Senate have both left for their August recess, and will not return until Tuesday, September 5.

LAST WEEK ON THE SENATE FLOOR:

The Senate returned on Monday and voted to invoke cloture on the nomination of Kevin Newsom of Alabama to be a U.S. Circuit Judge for the 11th Circuit.

The Senate also finally began to break the confirmation logjam on Monday. By voice vote – meaning a Unanimous Consent Agreement had been reached between Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer – the Senate confirmed 103 military promotions or confirmations.

The confirmation blockade had existed, said Schumer, because Republicans had early on announced they were going to try to repeal ObamaCare via reconciliation, meaning there was no need for Democrat votes, meaning there was no need for Democrat input. Now that the threat of repeal had been dealt with, the Democrats could let the Senate go back to its more typical working schedule.

On Tuesday, the Senate voted by 92-5 to confirm Christopher Wray to serve as the new Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Then the Senate voted to confirm Kevin Newsom to serve as a U.S. Circuit Judge for the 11th Circuit.

On Wednesday, the Senate voted by 50-48 to invoke cloture on the nomination of Marvin Kaplan of KS to be a Member of the National Labor Relations Board. Then the Senate voted by the same 50-48 margin to confirm Kaplan to that position on the board of the NLRB.

The most important time to make English the official language

The most commonly used language is English (specifically American English), which is the de facto national language of the United States and the primary language used for legislation, regulations, executive orders, treaties, federal court rulings, and all other official pronouncements

“We have room for but one flag, the American flag … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language …” ~Teddy Roosevelt, January 3, 1919

Nothing binds us together as Americans more than the English language. For most Americans outside of the Acela corridor, the expectation that immigrants learn English cuts across partisan lines as a common-sense imperative to sustain our civilization. Yet left-wing reporters think there is something hateful and revolutionary about the principle established in the RAISE Act that immigrants who speak English should be awarded priority status in a merit-based system. After all, as CNN’s advocacy director, Jim Acosta, would tell you, the Statue of Liberty, which of course is the law of the land on immigration, doesn’t list English as a criterion for admission.

Huckabee Calls for Repeal of 17th Amendment After ObamaCare Repeal Fails

The New American – “Time to repeal 17th Amendment. Founders had it right — Senators chosen by state legislatures. Will work for their states and respect 10th amid,” tweeted former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee late last week, in calling for the repeal of the 17th Amendment. The 17th Amendment altered the method of Senate election devised by the Founding Fathers from election by their respective state legislatures to direct, popular election, as was already the case with the House of Representatives.

Huckabee was incensed when the Senate failed, 49-51, to vote for the “skinny repeal” of ObamaCare. The so-called skinny repeal would have ended the individual mandate and defunded Planned Parenthood. It was the latest modification or repeal of the so-called Affordable Care Act (popularly known as ObamaCare) to fail to pass in the Senate, despite repeated Republican promises in the 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016 election campaigns that a Republican House of Representatives, Senate, and White House would do away with ObamaCare.

In this instance, three Republicans — Senator John McCain (Arizona), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and Susan Collins of Maine — voted against repeal. Had even one of them voted “yes,” then Vice President Mike Pence, in his capacity as President of the Senate, would have broken the tie, and the bill would have passed.

Mark Meadows: New healthcare bill is coming ‘that can get to 51’

Washington Examiner – Rep. Mark Meadows, a key negotiator in the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, said a new effort is underway to write a bill that can pass the Senate that would include proposals offered by Sens. Lindsey Graham, Bill Cassidy, Ted Cruz, and Rob Portman.

“We continue to work on two different plans with our Senate colleagues,” Meadows, R-N.C., told the Washington Examiner. “We will continue to do that over the next couple of weeks on a plan that can get to 51” votes in the Senate.

Meadows said he has talked to senators, including Graham, in the hours after this morning’s failure to pass a “skinny” repeal bill, and the mood is “all hands on deck” to come up with a new deal.

Why Nazism Was Socialism and Why Socialism Is Totalitarian

My purpose today is to make just two main points: (1) To show why Nazi Germany was a socialist state, not a capitalist one. And (2) to show why socialism, understood as an economic system based on government ownership of the means of production, positively requires a totalitarian dictatorship.

The identification of Nazi Germany as a socialist state was one of the many great contributions of Ludwig von Mises.

When one remembers that the word “Nazi” was an abbreviation for “der Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiters Partei — in English translation: the National Socialist German Workers’ Party — Mises’s identification might not appear all that noteworthy. For what should one expect the economic system of a country ruled by a party with “socialist” in its name to be but socialism?

Nevertheless, apart from Mises and his readers, practically no one thinks of Nazi Germany as a socialist state. It is far more common to believe that it represented a form of capitalism, which is what the Communists and all other Marxists have claimed.

The basis of the claim that Nazi Germany was capitalist was the fact that most industries in Nazi Germany appeared to be left in private hands.

Blue Ridge Honor Flight’s Next Adventure September 30, 2017

MISSION

To transport America’s Veterans to Washington, DC to visit those memorials dedicated to honor the service and sacrifices of themselves and their friends.

HONORAIR

What started as a dream in 2005, HonorAir and the National Honor Flight programs have been responsible for flying over 150,000 WWII veterans to our nation’s capitol to experience their memorial. In the spring of 2011, the last Western North Carolina HonorAir flight returned home to Asheville Airport. Since then, we have continued to advocate for veterans and work with other states in developing their own Honor Flight programs in conjunction with the Honor Flight network. On September 24, 2016, HonorAir becomes Blue Ridge Honor Flight and begins the next phase of its mission to bring all veterans to their own memorials in Washington DC.

Meadows: Budget still lacks vote, despite death of border tax

The Hill – The House Freedom Caucus is still holding out on voting for the budget resolution, despite a major victory for the group in eliminating the border adjustment tax.

“There’s still not enough votes to pass the budget,” Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said.

Members of the conservative group have withheld support for the budget over a series of policy disagreements, including the level of mandatory spending cuts and the specifics for tax reform, which the budget will have to lay out for procedural reasons.

Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows takes a seat at the top table

Less than 24 hours after Washington celebrated Independence Day, in the midst of a two-week stretch of round-the-clock discussions on healthcare reform and the GOP agenda, Rep. Mark Meadows drove up to the White House to talk strategy.

“Can you hold on just a second?” he asked the Washington Examiner as he rolled down the window to speak to security. “I’m heading in the guard gate.” He’s a busy guy, and he was in the middle of phone interview as he pulled into the executive mansion.

“I’m going up to see Steve Bannon,” he said, not to his interviewer but to one of the rings of security. “Thank you.”

Most lawmakers had gone home for a week’s recess, but Meadows stuck around for a while at least.

He and his wife, Debbie, had to celebrate America’s 241st birthday with friends, but he also had business to attend to.

Healthcare reform and the rest of the Republican legislative agenda evolve continuously, and as they have, Meadows has become a central figure and a chief influencer in a federal Washington run by President Trump.

Week 26: Made in America

Make America Great Again
 

MADE IN AMERICA WEEK

President Trump hosted companies from across the country at the White House to showcase products Made in America. In order to celebrate and highlight each state’s effort and commitment to American-made goods, businesses from each of the 50 states displayed products. Leaders from each company showcased their unique businesses on the South Lawn and on the State Floor of the White House. Products ranged from sandwiches, to wool blankets, to firetrucks; each business connected by the common thread of American excellence. Since first running for office, President Trump has urged industry to Buy America, Hire American.  He showcased that commitment again this week from The White House.

 

UPHOLDING AMERICAN ELECTION INTEGRITY

Election integrity matters to every American. President Reagan declared that the “right to vote is the crown jewel of American liberties.” By establishing this commission, President Trump is taking action to ensure that the ballot box remains inviolate, and that the crown jewel shines brighter than ever before. “Every time voter fraud occurs, it cancels out the vote of a lawful citizen and undermines democracy. Can’t let that happen. Any form of illegal or fraudulent voting, whether by non-citizens or the deceased, and any form of voter suppression or intimidation must be stopped,” said President Trump. At the President’s direction, Vice President Pence will serve as chairman of this commission and,  with the help of a bipartisan group, Vice President Pence will perform a truly non-partisan service for the American people.

LISTENING TO IDEAS FROM OUR SERVICE MEMBERS

President Trump and Vice President Pence sat down for lunch with service members who served in Afghanistan. The President has heard plenty of ideas from a lot of people, but he wanted to sit down and listen to the people on the ground. “We’ve been there for now close to 17 years, and I want to find out why we’ve been there for 17 years,” said President Trump.

IMPORTANCE OF MANUFACTURING IN AMERICA
