Walter Jones – One of the Last Fiscal Conservatives Still Standing
The Republican Elite Beltway establishment is celebrating the victory of Thom Tillis, Speaker of the North Carolina House, over his Tea Party and Evangelical rivals in Tuesday’s primary for the U.S. Senate. However, the deliberate assault upon Walter Jones by John Boehner has been outrageous and failed. Boehner purged all economic conservatives from the House Finance Committee. Boehner then had massive amounts of money sent it to North Carolina to try to get rid of Walter Jones for his support of Ron Paul and to try to save the country.
The Republican Beltway elite massively funded the effort to try to purge all economic conservatives so Boehner can keep Washington as the inside game hell-bent on sending the nation into absolute disaster. Boehner directed a million dollars of super PAC money poured into the district that tried to paint Walter Jones as a liberal when that is Boehner to the letter. Boehner is simply a low-life politician who if he was dictator, he would never champion any reform. It is business as usual for him and he is the leading cause of why the Republican party may split.
Jones voted against Obamacare and the bailouts of the big banks, Wall Street and Detroit. He voted against cap and trade, and TARP, the trillion-dollar stimulus package. Boehner has no such track record. Jones voted against every increase in the debt ceiling in 10 years and refuses to vote for any U.S. budget not in balance.
Walter Jones came to believe that voting to send Americans to fight and die in Iraq was the worst mistake of his career. Jones now spends hours each weekend writing personal letters to every family that lost a son or daughter in a war he wrongly supported. And he has resolved to oppose every idiotic war into which the country is being manipulated.
The War Party front, the “Emergency Committee for Israel,” is chaired by Bill Kristol, who has become the cheerleader for war that has cost 4,500 American lives. Bill has funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars into attack ads to get rid of Jones for he will not support another war based upon lies.
Then there was the Ending Spending Action Fund, a super PAC led by billionaire Joe Ricketts and backed by the Macau-Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, dumped scores of thousands dollars into the 3rd District to deceive voters into believing that Walter Jones was a liberal. Again, one must question why Ricketts is against fiscal conservatism.
The Republican Party is doomed. These types of people are so country-club establishment that they cannot see that they are seriously out of touch with America. They are placing the future at risk no different from the Democrats.
