This is what it’s going to be like through November. It’s going to be one battle after another throughout the Capitol. Republicans have had to figure out that there is no percentage in trying to ‘get along’ or accommodate with their Congressional brethren… history has shown us that it’s not a Republican strong point.

Every time Republicans try to ‘work with’ the leftists they come up on the bottom side of the deal, more often than not with lousy legislation and more regulatory power grabbing. There’s really only one way to deal with the left politically and that’s straight up, in your face, take no prisoners resistance by our Republicans in the House and Senate. These people really have their work cut out for them.

Justice Breyer and Goodwin Liu.

Mr Goodwin Liu has a track record which he attempted to avoid having come to light. The fact is that he has made some pretty controversial comments. Senate Republicans wasted no time wading into Liu. Jeff Sessions, Alabama, was particularly upset that Mr Liu had ‘mislaid’ several of his most controversial written opinions. It was a pretty rocky outing for Goodwin Liu. It did serve to point out that Mr. Liu is about as far left as he could be and that challenging him on every point was exactly what we the people are demanding from our Representatives.

The bottom line is that Liu has been unmasked as a far left ideologue and he most certainly would soon revert to his liberal instincts and reveal another leftist judicial activist. There is no option. The left has to be stopped no matter what. There are no other choices. We have to be tone deaf to the constant complaint of the left that we are not ‘playing fair’ with Obama’s appointees. The left’s always talking about fair play even as they’re cutting the rug from beneath your feet… when they shake your hand you need to count your fingers. Assume that they’re lying even when they don’t have to and you’ll be prepared to deal with them.

We’re engaged in a low-level civil war in which the forces of Marxian-Socialism are attempting to suborn our Constitution, our freedoms and our way of life. The battles are nonetheless fierce for being bloodless. The stakes are very, very high.
