Establishment must be removed
By Larry Klayman
July 31, 2011

As we near the end of the so-called debt crisis, with a phony deadline looming of Aug. 2, 2011, to supposedly raise the debt limit, one thing becomes crystal clear. The Republican establishment in Congress, comprised of Speaker of the House John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell have all predictably sold out not only tea partiers, but all of the American people. Their attempts to cut an under the table deal with the "devil," whereby they would agree to increase America's borrowing limit without making substantial cuts to our debt immediately, is not only disgraceful, it goes back on their word that they would not cave in to socialists in the Democratic Party and elsewhere who want to spend us into total collapse (We are already bankrupt many times over.) to destroy the nation as we know it, so these leftists can replace it with a new social order.

I, for one, am sick of seeing the faces of these Republican political hacks on television, or for that matter anywhere else. Its time for all of them to go and hand over the reins of what is left of our dysfunctional Congress — at least as far as their party is concerned — to the likes of Michele Bachmann, Alan West and others who still, at least for the moment, have some principles.

In 2004, I ran for the U.S. Senate in Florida as a Republican. As I chronicle in my book, "Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment," I ran against the Bush machine, a cabal of political Texas and Washington insiders composed of corrupt establishment hacks who not only lacked a clue on how to run the country, but lined their pockets at the peoples' expense.

Indeed, the first campaign chairman of my most formidable primary opponent, Mel Martinez (who had been Bush's secretary of housing and urban development), was none other than Jack Abramoff, the Washington lobbyist who was caught bribing "big wigs" in the Republican establishment. Karl Rove, the Bush White House political guru who now predictably is a "respected" commentator on Fox News (Rupert Murdoch, chairman of News Corp, is no amateur at rewarding those who have "helped" his media empire), inserted Mel into the race for fear that yours truly could actually win the Republican Senate nomination. Establishment figures like Rove, who was doing the bidding of W., Cheney and the rest of the crowd, could not stomach the thought of anyone who they could not control being a senator from Florida, not only now the third largest state but one that decides presidential elections. Rove and company did not want a "yes man" in Florida. They wanted someone who would say "no" when they told him to say no, to make the point with some humor.

As a conservative and someone who tries to keep the government "less dishonest" — when I started Judicial Watch in 1994, I used to say that my mission was to keep the government honest, but things have worsened considerably since then. I am more than fed up and disgusted by my own political party. And without naming names, I am even fed up and disgusted by tea-party politicians who admirably oppose this establishment — and have done so in the last days to reject the Boehner debt reduction legislation — but disingenuously praise the "Republican leadership" in public for fear of establishment retribution.

It's simply time to take the gloves off, dismantle the Republican establishment and the party, and start over! Without a real opposition party, the socialist, radical Muslim loving, so-called gay rights, environmental, atheist and abortionist activists of the left have no counterforce to stop them in their tracks.

All of this points out the inevitable: The nation is about ready to come totally unglued and explode at its seams. The right-wing conservative populace has had it and will soon take to the streets in a likely violent reaction to being sold out. And the left does not feel much differently, with its "mullah in chief" president so inept that he cannot even fully implement his grand socialist plan.

The only "good news" is that the nation regrettably needs to hit rock bottom at this time, as a complete and final wake-up call for revolution!

As I travel around the country and sometimes have the time to observe ordinary people of all social strata eating at restaurants, shopping, going to movies and plays and trying to create some sense of normalcy in their broken lives, I get flashbacks to scene in the film "Titanic" — where the musicians played on and the people relaxed as the ship was sinking.

The ship of state is sinking, and has nearly already sunk. If the state of the nation were not bad enough, the sad fact that our so-called leaders — and I am not just talking about politicians but also judges — are so intellectually and actually corrupt is more than frightening.

This outcome of this debt crisis will hopefully show all of us — right, left and center — that it's time for the establishment to be removed. John Boehner can spend his time at tanning salons and hooka bars, but he has no place as speaker of the House. And, Barack Hussein Obama, who "kidded" at this year's White House Correspondence Dinner that he is the Lion King from Kenya, can and should go back to his native land.

It's time that "We the People" take matters into our own hands and lead this country — no matter what the cost and no matter what non-violent means must be used — back from the brink. In the days ahead, we need to talk seriously about how this can be done and then finally act.
