    Publisher's note: Brant Clifton uses the words of others, in part, to showcase that Walter Jones is taking an admirable stand on fiscal responsibility in his "bare knuckles" Conservative online publication known as The Daily Haymaker.

    He's added his name to a letter seeking a short-term government funding bill that defunds any agency that would facilitate amnesty. Now, congressman Walter Jones is criticizing his caucus's leadership for their tactics in pushing the continuing resolution / omnibus spending bill meant to head off an alleged government shutdown on December 11:

    [...] Boehner critics say there's no reason the Speaker couldn't have brought the spending package to the floor this past week, giving the House more time to consider it.

    But doing so would also give more time for the right to build a case against it.

    "They don't want you to read it, that's why! You think they want you to analyze all the mischievous items in there?" Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) told The Hill.

    Asked if the timing of the plan was aimed at jamming the Senate or House conservatives, Jones replied: "I think its aimed at screwing over the American people. You can quote me on that." [...]


    And the congregation said 'Amen.'

    mcconnboehnerIt sounds like the negotiations on the cromnibus (continuing resolution + opmnibus) spending bill are bogging down.

    Rush Limbaugh has pushed a theory on his radio show and on Fox News Sunday this past weekend: The government shutdown meme is all one big piece of theatre. It's a smokescreen being used by the establishment GOP as an excuse for not stopping Obama on something they really don't want to stop him on (amnesty).

    If Republicans support a long-term funding bill, they are basically signing off on Barry's amnesty executive order. A long-term bill would fully fund the federal government through half of the upcoming GOP-dominated congressional session. By the time you got to a point of being able to defund the amnesty process, it would pretty much be too late.

    Let congressman Jones know you have his back on this one. Strongly encourage our spineless other reps to follow Jones's lead. It's about more than stopping Obama - which was the mandate the voters gave the GOP in November. It's about our Constitution and our country. 202-224-3121. 202-225-3121.
