MassGOP Doubles Down On Abject Failure

Posted January 30th, 2015 by Iron Mike

We can only bear our ignominious disgrace in stoic silence, – since RiNOs outnumber Patriots on the 80-member State Committee,  and you don’t get another chance to dump them until March 2016.
Kirsten Hughes re-elected

Just 86 days ago our voters elected a RiNO as governor [yes, Charlie was way better than Coakley] and sent all 8 incumbent MoonBats plus 1 new one – back to Congress along with the Ice Cream Man and the Squaw.  Democrats still control all our Constitutional offices.

Now, despite such a massive and overwhelming record of failure, the RiNOs re-elected Kirsten Hughes – “the Mouseketeer” – to be the MassGOP Chairwoman for another 2 years?

No wonder John Walsh retired; – his work here is done!

Everyone should note that this disgrace occurred the very same day that Mass House Speaker Bob DeLeo [aka ‘the unindicted co-conspirator’] had his fellow Kleptocrats reverse the term-limit rule.

DeLeo can now serve beyond 2016….making rules,  passing laws,  taxing you to pay for them,  and putting all his friends on the state payroll…union jobs of course….

And that faint whistling sound you’re hearing,….is Kirsten walking past grave of John Adams on her way to her day job as a Quincy city counselor….

John Adams Damn you RiNOs

Last night on Facebook the various RiNOs couldn’t post their suck-up congratulations fast enough – practically stumbling over each other to curry favor.

I am at a loss to explain such behavior.  What do they think they’ll receive in return – except a bigger tax bill from our Democrat-dominated state legislature…?

For those of you who don’t follow the disgraceful shenanigans of the MassGOP, just know:

… that by REMAINING SILENT and INERT, Kirsten Hughes and her predecessors dating back decades have allowed this once-proud state to become a reliable Democratic stronghold where business, industry,  and Patriots look to leave for a better home in Texas.

Even a wimp like Scott Brown couldn’t get re-elected!

Any RiNO like Kirsten – and about 42 members of the MassGop State Committee, – who support abortion and who are for gun control – – ARE NOT REPUBLICANS! 

They are Democratspretending to be Republicans – to neuter our party.

Deval congratulates Kirsten

    Into the Valley of Death rode the 42 plus one where Democrats rule on Beacon Hill in almost every newly reappointed office Suite, in almost every urban city sucking of the teat of the taxpayers. Like the proverbial “Charlie on the MTA” a monumental transit disgrace, the” 42 plus one” will never return to the roles of the once powerful Massachusetts GOP. They will be forever relegated to the purgatory of mediocrity.

    Did anyone run against her? I heard that she was not opposed.

    In full disclosure, I am the Republican State Committeeman for the 2nd Middlesex District serving all of Medford, all of Somerville, precincts 4 to 7 in Winchester and wards 9, 10, and 11 of the People’s Republic of Cambridge.

    For the record, last night, I utilized the write in space and for Party Chair I wrote in Sarah Palin. That vote was ruled “illegal” as Governor Palin does not reside in Massachusetts. I couldn’t bring myself to vote for Kirsten, even though she was unopposed. And, why was she unopposed you ask? Deck stacking, pure and simple.

    In 2011, Scott Brown endorsed Bob Maginn to stack the deck for his failed 2012 bid to Chief Spreading Bull, E. Warren. At that time, moderate Republicans dominated the State Committee and our conservative choice, Frank McNamara was defeated by some 52 to 27 votes.

    In 2013, after many conservatives were elected in March of 2012, Scott Brown, once again, made his moderate endorsement, this time to Kirsten Hughes. After a questionable first ballot, Kirsten won by 2 votes in the final round. That is a huge jump in a positive direction in only 2 short years.

    Last night, Kirsten enjoyed the endorsement of Governor Charlie Baker. 27 State Committee members didn’t even attend the meeting. That may be due to the snow, but it may not. The roads I drove to Newton were clear. But who knows? I know at least one member did have prior family obligations as last night’s meeting was the snow date. The original date was for Tuesday night. Not last night.

    The moderates, who still hold a very slim majority, were never going to make Charlie Baker appear weak in his own party so the votes were not there for any conservative to challenge Kirsten. Therefore, no one challenged her. Others may not have been willing to vote for someone else because they may want jobs down the line in the Baker Administration. Unfortunately, far too many people are involved in politics for a title, a job, or money. It’s plastic, phony and nothing irks me more. At any rate, we should all be irate that Scott Brown and Charlie Baker are choosing our Party Chair as outside influences as opposed to the voices of the people who elected us to be responsible with their trust on the State Committee.

    In my nearly 3 years on the State Committee I have worked my tail off with fellow conservatives and have ran for office at the local and state level when I couldn’t find another candidate. Like I said, though, I serve the 2nd Middlesex. Somerville is 20:1 against Republicans. Barack Obama lived in Somerville for 3 years. Need I say more? This is why I was opposed to a primary for Governor. Sure, I wanted a better candidate, which is to say a more conservative candidate than Charlie Baker, but I was thinking about making a stronger bench at the state level in our State House and State Senate races, like mine, and others, that could have used all of the help given to Fisher. Please, don’t get me wrong. I like the folks that worked/volunteered for Mark Fisher and I like Mark, too. But sadly, 2014 was just not the time for his campaign, in my humble opinion.

    If I were elected to the State Senate, and others like James Erhardt (sp?) and a few more, we could have been a force to keep Baker as far right as possible. That’s why I supported not having a primary as opposed to popular opinion by some that I “supported Baker.” I am a pro life, traditional marriage, Constitutional, Christian conservative. Period. This is why Chairman Hughes has only placed me on ONE committee, that had ONE meeting, that lasted roughly ONE hour. Last night, Kirsten announced a “2014 Election Committee” and appointed several people on that committee including David D’Arcangelo, and Patricia Saint Aubin, and others closely connected to various other campaigns, but I was not appointed even though I worked my ass off in the 2nd Middlesex State Senate race knocking on over 8,000 doors and bringing the first debate to the FAR LEFT Pat Jehlen that she ever had as a State Senator. The information I collected would greatly benefit this new committee and our party at large but because I am a conservative, Kirsten passed me over. I have changed my dialogue with moderates by not calling them “Rino” and such and reached out to Kirsten and others in State Party Officer positions only to be totally ignored. Hey, I’m not complaining here. Don’t get me wrong. I am just illuminating the terrain of how some, if not all, conservatives are being treated in order to stress the importance of winning the majority of conservatives in 2016 on the State Committee. It’s not “about me” at all. It’s about being viable opposition as Republicans so that we balance power, or take the majority, God willing, on Beacon Hill from the dirty Democrats. THEN, we can institute the limitations on a big government run amuck that’s mired in scandal after Democrat scandal to make sure government is filled with true public servants that honor life, family, the rule of law, state’s rights, a strong defense, free markets and American excellence. Until we win the majority on the Republican State Committee and change the status quo of party leadership, conservatives like myself, and our cherished beliefs will continued to be ignored and silenced by the moderate majority.

    Let’s take solace in the fact that it’s been conservatives stepping up on issues like the Justina Pelletier case, Tank The Gas Tax Ballot, immigration reform, working our tails off in blizzards to get Mike Sullivan on the ballot, and changing our party platform to support life by calling abortion the tragedy it is and honoring respectable marriage. We have a lot of work to do still. And we will need every vote for re-election of conservatives in 2016 as well as every vote for those seats we need to take to make the standing 45 or 50 conservative Patriots to a moderate MINORITY on the MASS GOP State Committee. Then, in 2017, who knows? Chairman Mike Farquhar? Chairman Alex Veras? Chairman Bill Gilmeister? It’s up to us to save this state and our nation. One person, one vote at a time. We need that conservative majority in 2016. I will be working for that with all my might and all my prayers. I hope many will join me. Thanks for reading this way too long post. I’m passionate about this. Obviously. God bless.

    I need to stress another point. Many moderates did vote conservatively. I have no personal feelings at all against moderate Republicans. I personally like all of my fellow Republicans on and off the State Committee and across the fruited plain.

    I like Mitt Romney, for example, personally, just not as a candidate or elected public servant because he’s proven to be weak as a candidate and as an elected Governor instituted policy that expands government which is not what our full party platform endorses or supports. I only question the moderates, at times, on not supporting the full party platform and other issues, choices, and candidates.

    I want to encourage positive debate and I truly want to reach out, with an open hand and an open heart, to try to win more people over to the full conservative values, beliefs, and principles that I honor and love. At times we will be successful and get more conservative votes like we did on the party platform changes calling abortion a tragedy as I mentioned in my last comment. At other times we won’t get the moderates to vote our way. But, I will continue to not use disparaging remarks such as calling them “Rinos” or other terms that they may find insulting because that pushes them away.

    I won’t, on the other hand, tell others not to do this, or that, or say this or that, because I fully understand why some folks do use the term “Rino” and other terms that some may not care for. I only hope the moderates out there who may be reading this realize why some folks use those terms. And, if they don’t, let me be clear, it’s because moderates use terms, too, like Boehner, calling Tea Party conservatives “Knuckle Draggers”, or McCain calling us “Hobits.” Even others, closer to home, whose name I won’t mention, has said, “I wish they never existed” referring to us conservatives. It goes both ways.

    At the end of the day, it’s about electing folks who will be true public servants honoring America in a Norman Rockwell sense of the term. I will fight for this trying to be as good of a person as I can be for the rest of my natural life. Thank you for reading. God bless you all. God bless America.
