Senator Lamar Alexander – Neo-Con Trotskyite

"It is a known fact that the policies of the government today, whether Republican or Democrat are closer to the 1932 platform of the Communist Party than they are to either of their own party platforms in that critical year."
--Walter Trohan (1903-2003) Chicago Tribune reporter (1929-1972) and bureau chief in Washington, D.C.

(Look at us 81 years later!)

Senator Lamar Alexander has been a thorn in Tennessee's side since 1979. He is not a conservative Republican. In fact, truth be known, he has sided with Obama over 62% of the time. Right now he is acting as the bagman for his buddy, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, and his great desire to tax the internet and put more small businesses out-of-business.

First though, let's look at Lamar's history. He has worked in the private sector for only short periods of time. Lamar was Born in Maryville, Tennessee, which is only 20 minutes from where I live. He is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and New York University School of Law.

In 1967, Alexander joined the campaign of Howard Baker, who became the first Tennessee Republican elected to the Senate in four decades. Alexander then accompanied him to Washington.

It was at a Hill staff softball game that he met his wife, Leslee "Honey" Buhler. She was working for Senator John Tower, the man instrumental in getting John McCain elected to the House. In the early years of their marriage, she raised their four children while doing volunteer work, specifically for Planned Parenthood. She was also a member of the board of the Corporation of Public Broadcasting (NPR and PBS).

Alexander worked as a legislative assistant to GOP sellout Senator Howard Baker, (Link). In 1982, for no apparent reason, but to go along and get along, then-Republican Senate MAJORITY Leader, and CFR member, Howard Baker, entered into an agreement with the Ku Klux Klansman from West Virginia, (Democrat Senator Robert Byrd). This agreement effectively barred Republicans from pursuing suspected cases of voter fraud without first getting a federal court's approval. Thus, the reason why the GOP won't challenge vote fraud, and we saw plenty of it in 2012! Baker, who mentored Fred Thompson into politics in 1972, was also part of the "Panama Canal giveaway team" during the administration of President Jimmy Carter, another CFR member. Seems Lamar learned well from his position with Baker.

Remember, Howard Baker's second wife is Nancy Kassebaum Baker who was instrumental in pushing a Constitutional Convention in the early 80s, which we fought and thankfully defeated. Kassebaum is a moderate-to-liberal Republican who is known for her health care legislation, the Kennedy-Kassebaum Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which was co-sponsored by Massachusetts Senator Edward Kennedy, well known socialist democrat.

U.S. Secretary for Education Czar, Arne Duncan, delivered the spring Baker Distinguished Lecture at the University of Tennessee last April, 2013. Fully twenty minutes of his speech was lauding Senator Howard Baker and Nancy Kassebaum, both of whom were in the audience. Here is the link to Duncan's speech, which I wrote about in The Heartless Bureaucracy. My friend, Karen Bracken, described this speech perfectly when she said, "Listening to Duncan speak about education reform was like having needles poked in my eyes."

Lamar Alexander was also an assistant in the failed Nixon Administration in the late 1960s. In his first campaign for Governor of Tennessee in 1974, his opponent, Congressman Ray Blanton, used the Nixon Watergate scandal, and the President's ultimate resignation, to defeat Alexander. Because of Blanton's own scandals, he did not seek re-election, so in 1978, Alexander ran for governor again and defeated Knoxville Democrat Jake Butcher, (of banking scandal fame) serving as the 45th
Governor of Tennessee from 1979 to 1987. In 1991, he was nominated by President
George H. W. Bush to serve as Secretary of Education, from 1991 to 1993. Alexander ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 1996 and 2000.

He defeated Democratic Congressman Bob Clement to replace outgoing Senator Fred Thompson in 2002, and won reelection in 2008. Alexander announced that he will run for reelection in 2014.

Out of misguided local loyalty, the conservative voters in Tennessee have repeatedly elected homegrown globalists. Among them are prominent United States Senators, Howard Baker, Bill Frist, Fred Thompson, and of course Lamar Alexander.

All four of those Republican senators from Tennessee were members of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations during their tenure in the United States Senate.

Just what kind of Republican and politician is Lamar Alexander? I think most old-right conservative Tennesseans know, and there's even a petition circulating to get a true conservative challenger against Lamar in the 2014 election. Let's look at who is behind putting Lamar in office for the third time as Tennessee's senior senator.

Senate Race 2014

Alexander announced that his co-chairs would be top statewide officials, Gov. Bill Haslam and Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey. In addition, he said, his campaign co-chairs will be the junior senator from Tennessee, Bob Corker, the state speaker Beth Harwell and U.S. Reps. Marsha Blackburn, Chuck Fleischmann, Diane Black, Stephen Fincher and Phil Roe. Rep. Jimmy Duncan Jr., a 13-term congressman, will chair Alexander's campaign. Every one of these people have voting records that prove they are not old- right conservatives.

John J. (Jimmy) Duncan is the illustrious congressman who has been called the new "Ron Paul." One has to wonder if author, Michael Collins, was on drugs when he wrote the article. Congressman John Duncan voted for Goals 2000, the proposal of which can be found in literature published by the United Nations. The World Conference on Education for All was held in Jomtien, Thailand, March 5-9, 1990, and is found on the UNESCO website. Representative Duncan also attended the recent speech by education czar, Arne Duncan (no relation), at the University of Tennessee. In 1994, Jimmy Duncan voted for NAFTA, despite constituent phone calls 10 to 1 against. NAFTA was written by Heritage Foundation's Richard Allen, and has destroyed manufacturing jobs in America.

I recently called Congressman Duncan's office and was told he will vote for the Internet Sales Tax being pushed by Governor Haslam and carried to the Senate by Alexander. Every single one of Lamar's political supporters are neo-con Trotskyites. One only has to look at the voting record of each to see where they stand, and they'll probably all do the bidding of Governor Haslam and vote to destroy small businesses. Haslam is urging every Tennessee congressperson to vote for the Market Fairness Act. I wonder what he's promising them for this vote.

Internet Sales Tax

Quite obviously, Lamar is playing bagman in the US Senate for Tennessee's Governor Haslam who, when he took office in 2010, swore to make his main objective an internet sales tax. Link He promised to call every other governor and have them push Congress to override the 1992 Supreme Court Quill ruling. In the ruling, states can collect sales tax on catalog sales only if the vender is physically located within their borders. The rationale was that it would be too complicated for catalog retailers to calculate the sales tax in each jurisdiction where they sell goods.

The ruling was later applied to Internet retailers. But Haslam argues that computer software makes the thinking obsolete. As a small business owner myself, I know the work this would add to my business and it would require an increase in my prices to cover the cost, and my business is not done via costly computer software.

On March 24, 2013, at 10:29 AM, the so-called Market Fairness Act passed in the Senate in the form of a second degree amendment by 75-24, with the support of 26 Republicans. This will send the message to Harry Reid that he has more than 60 votes to pass this as a standalone bill. In doing so, they have voted to grow government all over the country, hurt low-tax states, impose taxation without representation, (we fought a war over taxation without representation!) saddle small businesses with collecting taxes for 10,000 distinct tax jurisdictions, and adulterate the freest most successful entity known to man. Here are the 26 Republicans traitors. To top it off, PAC checks to many Republicans from large corporations have swayed their votes. To date, Lamar Alexander has received $41,000 in PAC checks from supporters of the internet tax.

Keep telling yourself there's a difference in the parties. Unless there is a huge outcry from the electorate (call your House reps now), thanks to Governor Haslam and his water boy, Lamar Alexander, we will end up with this new draconian and unconstitutional tax.

Lamar and Education

Like our Tennessee Governor Haslam, Lamar Alexander has been in bed with the left's agenda of destroying our children's education, and it started a long time ago. In Part 2, we'll look at Lamar's education reform ideas, ideas he's had for decades.

    Shame on Lamar Alexander and Crocker who are both crooks and criminals who are supporting this crime spree called the Senate Amnesty Bill.
    This amnesty bill (which triples legal immigration also and will flood the nation with 50 million aliens, according to the CBO study:

    This will destroy America and lead to genocide of whites, just like in South Africa.
    This is not just a routine bill. This bill is a criminal act of war against the nation by its govt. And Lamar the Criminal Alexander has engaged in crimes against humanity by voting for this racket.
    Despite public pleas and despite the obvious destruction that this bill will unleash on the this country and decimate the Republican party, the fact that these Republican gangsters are also going along with this bill proves only one thing--this is a gang of criminals on the payroll of the Oligarchs who not only provide them campaign contribution but bribe them secretly millions of dollars.
    Thus, these Senator puppets are totally under the subjugation and control of the Oligarchs and willing to kill for them and burn the country to the ground. They will sell their mother for a buck, if ordered to do so by the Oligarchs.
    The Oligarchs want to destroy the white majority and want to carry out ethnic cleansing of Whites due to their delusional fears of a white majority. These Senators are their hitmen. See Brother Kapner’s website.
    The oligarchs believe that if America is totally destroyed, once they have looted and robbed it blind and bled it dry, they can always go back to their mythological homeland (aliyah).
    The gullible American public and the gullible American army does not realize that this criminal gang called the US gov really works for the Oligarchs and this is a part of their plan of ethnic cleansing and white extermination.

    If the public and the army were to wake up and realize this and fight back hard against this crime against humanity by the Oligarchs and their puppet Senators, then this war can be stopped. Otherwise, this is America and white extermination.

    Lamar Alexander needs to be removed and voted out of office and tried for crimes against humanity. This man is nothing but a crook and a criminal and a disgrace to mankind.

    Wow, Kelleigh! I always learn so much about our politicians from your papers. Thank you for your diligent work.

    Let me state up front so that there is no confusion, Alexander is not a Conservative and needs to be replaced with a real, strong Conservative, I DO NOT support him. However, as a Conservative who believes that Madison and the other framers had it right and that progressives in both parties have corrupted one of the best systems ever designed by man, I have to concede that on the issue of internet sales taxes, Alexander did exactly what the framers intended.

    The Senate was designed so that Senators represented the interests of their respective states and not the interests of its citizens (that duty falls to their representatives in the House). As a state without an income tax that relies on sales tax revenue to fund the state government, it is in Tennessee's interest to see an opportunity to tap an new revenue source approved. Given that, Alexander did his job in a manner consistent with the framers original intent, although knowing Alexander, this was completely by accident. It is now up to the conservatives in the House to say "No, you have have enough revenue. You do not get to collect more until you get your house in order."

    Tennessee is a conservative state and, given the choice,will pick a good Conservative over a RINO any day of the week. I just hope we can find one who is willing to run because Alexander and Corker both need to be replaced.

  • George Wentzel

    I say let them pass anything they want and we choose to be civilly disobedient and disregard them as a common fruit fly.

  • jack

    A RINO for too long but don't forget RINO Corker!!!!

  • Barb Patton

    Strange that the American lemmings have the patience of Job and put up with traiterous government thugs but do not have the time and patience to teach their children right from wrong.

  • Gaines Bruce

    As a conservative voter in Tennessee, Lamer Alexandre has been a real disappointment. The TEA Party is hoping to find someone to run against him next election. If they don't I will likely write in my own name.

    As i've said many times before, what truly amazes me is how the American people tolerate this political system, a system that is clearly based on nothing but lies and corruption. The only difference between our system and that of some South American banana republic is that our system is more sophisticated, and a whole lot more expensive. But unlike us, even the 3rd world people of South America eventually catch on.

    • lonebull

      i too am amazed at the level of tolerance. most americans just don't care & they won't care until it's too late to care. as long as they have that 1 little thing that passifies them (beer, nuts, video game, porn, tv, etc.) they will muddle thru their lives & care less about WHY their lives SUCK! we will be a socialist nation before they ever figure it out. it's a sad but true tale & it makes me SICK!
