Reminder: To Remove ObamaCare We Must First Remove The UniParty “Big Club”…

Many years ago we accepted the UniParty.  Shortly thereafter CTH broke away from political identity framed around arguments of party and personality; we chose to focus on policy and outcomes.  Washington DC is a singular party, a UniParty. We have been explaining, countering and fighting “The Big Club” in DC for years; always following the money.

President Trump is the first political entity in our lifetime that not only comprehends the faces of the false arguments (the personalities of false choice and controlled opposition), but more importantly sees the architects behind the Potemkin villages represented by those faces. When it comes to domestic economic policy, the architects are the BIG CLUB.

So, what is “The Big Club“?  …What “Deep State” is to intelligence, military intervention and foreign policy – the “BIG CLUB” is to matters of domestic economics…

Politicians do not write laws. Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer do not sit in their offices writing out scripts of laws and legislation; no politician does. Politicians are the faces who sell legislation that unseen hands create. The Big Club represents the hands that actually create legislation; lobbyist hands.

As such, it makes no sense to argue about the salespeople Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz or Elizabeth Warren when none are creating the legislative constructs they are selling.  How’s that bill to ‘confiscate El Chappo funds to build the wall’ coming?

Indeed, it makes much more sense to focus the attention on the unseen hands that are never discussed – These are the roots of the issues, the politicians are merely the expendable and interchangeable sales force.

The Big Club are massive and complex networks of lobbying groups who actually write legislation.  After lobbyists have written the law, depending on their own evaluation of importance therein, they pay the politicians to support and sell their construct.

The amount of payment varies depending on how valuable the construct is to the interests of the Club. Big legislative constructs that provide the Club large income increases are worth more than smaller ones.

This is the accurate background framework to consider ObamaCare.

Within The BIG CLUB there are, essentially, two larger factions with interest: Big Labor and Wall Street (big crony-business). There are other factions like Big Green (Al Gore) etc. However, for the sake of ObamaCare the two that matter are “Big Labor” (AFL-CIO, SEIU, AFSCME, UFCW etc), and Wall Street (U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue).

The Big Club has paid for ObamaCare’s construct, and they are not going to allow their sales force to walk away from it. From their position, this is a massive ‘multi-multi-hundreds-of-millions’ expenditure that has already taken place.

Tom Donohue (U.S. CoC) already lost hundreds of millions when his construct (his team actually did the writing) of TPP was lost due to Donald Trump. Donohue’s TPP loss followed the loss of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (2014 Dave Brat), and his loss of Common Core Education standards, again with Donald Trump.

Multinational corporate lobbyist Tom Donohue spent hundreds of millions on Gang of Eight, Common Core, TPP and ObamaCare.

Donohue paid off AFL-CIO’s Richard Trumka to get him to stop being public about his opposition of TPP. The quid-pro-quo was transparently evident in 2016 when Trumka endorsed candidate Hillary Clinton who was supporting Donohue’s TPP.

Having lost TPP, Go8 and Common Core, there is no way Tom Donohue (the financial interests behind him) is going to accept losing the biggest investment to date, ObamaCare.

♦ Big Labor support ObamaCare for a few reasons. #1 it granted fiscal stability to their retirement programs which were failing with the increased costs of providing healthcare coverage. #2 it creates additional profit margin space within union companies for more lucrative compensation contracts. And #3 ideologically it was constructed to eventually end up with a single-payer system. All three points are great for Big Labor.

♦ Wall Street supports ObamaCare because it: #1 removes the cost of providing healthcare from the cost of producing products in the U.S. [However, you’ll note the consumer price of manufactured goods never actually decreases, instead the savings go to the profit margin.] #2 allows the manufacturing cost equity to streamline globalization efforts.

Both primary factions within the BIG CLUB stood to gain substantially if they could shift the cost of healthcare from their corporate ledgers into the personal checkbooks of the individual U.S. consumer.   Hence, they looked at the lobbying cost of ObamaCare as a long-term legislative investment with a massive upside for profit.

After the GOPe wing of the UniParty was voted into the majority in both houses (2014), the Big Club sales people (politicians) needed to give the illusion of “repeal” or “removal”, but not actually do anything which would remove it. So long as Obama was in office the optical games were easy; with Clinton later in office the games would be no longer needed.

Big Club spends to make sure Clinton wins the Presidency.

#NeverTrump making sense now?

Rut Roh.

Now, fast forward to 2017 and President Trump is in office on a promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Oh snap, NOW what is the Big Club going to do?

Stall for time…. Quick construct plan to deal with the unexpected. Stall, block cabinet and down-stream confirmations… Activate astroturf to provide Sales Force cover… Paul Ryan lies to Sean Hannity… etc.

More things reconciling now?

Once you see the strings, it’s almost impossible to watch the marionettes and not see them.

    Agree with difficulty finding replacements who will not cave like so many GOPe and tea party. Must start somewhere, though. A major victory no matter how small can turn the tide against the Big Club. I really believe that the GOP electorate can pressure current officials to remove Ryan and McConnell. Their failures are justification enough for removal. Replace each with strong Trump people of our choosing. That is, not only demand ouster of Ryan and McConnell, but also demand our chosen replacements. I would leave the choice to wiser folks than me, but once our preferred replacements are decided, we should back the demanded candidate to our representatives with a unified voice.

      So everything rides on the primaries. It all begins and ends with the primaries. Once in the general election phase – it’s too late.

      The Repugs know full well that the majority of voters pay little or no attention to the primaries and most who do show up to automatically pull the lever for the the incumbent.

      For Trumpians the primary is the first general election needed to clean house and we have to work through the lies and deceit of most politicians to identify the true Trumpian candidates from the Party hacks only posing as such.

      We need to start now get bios on the candidates and gather as much info on them as possible to find the real reformers.

        So true… This year, I ran into some many people before the primaries who loved Trump, and it was a real challenge getting them to understand that if they didn’t show for the primaries, he might not be on the ballot.

    Not that it’s a big secret to anyone on here, but if you need proof that most of our corrupt, elected officials don’t have a clue, take a look at this….

    It’s a little old, but definitely proof that they don’t have a clue.

    The Lobbyists get a lot of credit for writing the legislation – but the bureaucrats – the staff members who change offices when their politician is dethroned are also integral to the problem. They work with the lobbyists to write the bills and get them passed. The salesman don’t even read what they put forward much of the time. They are too busy politiking, getting donations; so they can stay in office and put forward legislation they did not write.

  4. If we are so angry, why can’t we get a march of 3+ million, and storm the senate, and occupy it until they do what they were elected to do?

    Why not?

    Why can’t Trump pass an executive order making ALL financial transactions between politicians and lobbyist illegal. It is straight up Moonlighting. If you were paid to, for example, sell pharmaceuticals for Bristol Myers Squibb, to represent them to the client, then you would not only NOT be allowed to also work for Pfeizer and a direct competiter, but it would also be illegal and you could get into big trouble. How come politicians do it. They are voted in to represent us, and then take money to represent special interests. It must be stopped. It is why we are here today.

    Time for us to get off the threads and comment boards, and march on Washington, and hold them hostage.

      I agree. How to accomplish without Antifa, Black bloc, BLM, Pussy hats and assorted paid leftist anarchists showing up and destroying the message with their violence, intimidation and rioting? Then the Communist DNC and MSM blame the messenger and bury the good and report the ugly and we’re called names again while they get the attention. We are being censored and silenced by screeching, insane mobs of rioter and liars.

      One would think that after all President Trump has done to stand up for the Christians in America that a large group of high profile pastors and ministers could arrange such a march on DC to help rid the country of TYRANNY of OBAMACARE but where are they??? Anyone?

      ***AUGUST RECESS CONGRESSIONAL TOWN HALLS***

      We are organizing Trump supporters to show up at both Democrat and Republican Congressional Town Hall Meetings held during the August Congressional Recess. We need to be a big presence at the town halls to show support for President Trump and his policies. Moveon.org is already organizing progressives to show up at the town hall meetings. They are well funded astroturf, so you know they will show up in numbers.

      Time for Trump supporters to get active and show the Democrats that we are very passionate about our support of President Trump and we will fight hard to pass his agenda.

      To volunteer to help organize in your area, please email mainstreetpatriots@gmail.com with the name of your state and volunteer in the subject line.

    I agree with everything you say here. I also agree with everything you say in your piece on multinational companies exporting American wealth. But let’s stop using George Carlin’s “Big Club” term and call it what it is: Global Corporate Fascism. Forget Mussolini and Hitler. They rode horses and shat in outhouses. Modern fascism is global and high tech and moves at the speed of light, with international corporations controlling governments.

    And one of the ways it succeeds is by constantly pointing us to the battles we have, unknowingly, already lost, and encouraging us to keep fighting them. Thus we have the new Republican tax and spending reduction plan introduced by the “small government conservatives” that would reduce taxes on the globalists and reduce spending on “entitlements.” And we are supposed to cheer and rally around a plan that will kill us. The fascists are just setting up another debate over “who shot JR?”

    94 million American citizens have dropped out of the work force because there simply aren’t 94 million open jobs in America to apply for. How do you think these formerly hard-working 94 million Americans survive? SS disability, Medicaid, food stamps (snap cards), and anything else they can think of to feed and house themselves and their families after the plant, mine, or mill, closed. But we are continually bombarded with stories and images of lazy African Americans.

    So, a question for everyone here: with a plan to cut “entitlements” (YAYYYY!!) cut welfare (YAYYYY!) cut Medicaid (Yay!), cut taxes on those earning over $250,000 per year ( yay?) and, you just wait for it, privatize and reduce social security benef8its ( uh…wait a minute) who is this going to hurt? Hint: who voted for Trump?

    There is no such thing left as a small-government Republican. They are all gone. If you want to see one, go to the historical society this weekend, or to the natural history museum, and look at the wax figures of them behind the glass. All the puffing and preening in Congress by those claiming to be small-governmenters is just so many imposters puting on funny wigs and memorizing the songs of long extinct birds. They are, all of them, Global Corporate Fascists, and they are here to eat your children.

    Trump needs to clean house at all of the U.S. government agencies. Every time a new administration takes office, they always put in their own people and remove the old guard from the previous administration. Unfortunately, for some strange reason, this is NOT being done. Therefore, they may be working on things like repealing Obummer Care, but the powers that be that remain in place in the U.S. government offices will continually resist and try to sabotage all of the efforts of Trump’s team. So why leave those (Democrats and RepubliCats) people in place in the first place!?! It makes absolutely NO sense to allow them to stay in and attack the very projects that Trump is trying to get accomplished. He might as well be swimming upstream in the rapids.
    Of course, there are also wolves in sheeps clothing or rather snakes in the grass pretending to be on Trump’s team, but they may be working against him! Someone looked up one of the new guys, a supposed Republican for Trump’s new team at HHS, and learned he’s a lobbyist and a former legal counsel to Obummer!
    Trump needs to weed out all of the Dems and RepubliCats and snakes in the grass or he or his policies will be swimming uphill against the current and may start to sink.
    God bless Trump. God bless America.
