Has the nation gone irreversibly blue? Did intraparty disunity sabotage Mitt Romney's presidential quest? Or is there some other explanation for the nation's re-election of a president with the worst record in decades? I received an email from a brilliant conservative friend who wonders whether Republicans can ever win another election and thus whether the nation is forever lost. I ran into a college student at church the Sunday before the election, and despite his strong conservatism and high intelligence, he admitted confusion about the candidates' respective positions after the presidential debates. My first reaction after the
We have learned that new media, Rush - Fox News - Lucianne.com - Hot Air etc etc - as well as the wealth of popular, conservative books published under Obama's tragic reign - all this has no measurable effect upon an electorate dumbed-down beyond reach. In any appraisal moving forward, that should be lesson #1, despairing as it may be.
Since 1946, and fer shure, since 1960, the Public Schools of America, and practically all non-technical courses in most Colleges have thoroughly espoused the usual lines of Democrat-Socialist instruction, i.e., America is evil, America should feed all the world, give everything to everybody, profits are bad (except for MOC), ad infinitim, ad nauseum.
And as the Great One says, You Don’t Vote Against Santa Claus.
BUT, the Great One, and Fox News, and a very few others, have not only showed us what really went on in the Benghazi Affair, but unfortunately beat that theme to death. No one on our side seems to realize that the Takers and Morons (forgive me, legitimate Medical Morons) not only couldn’t care less about Benghazi, but have not acquired nor want to acquire any idea as to what or where same is; as long as that check(s) arrives and the EBT Card(s) are recharged every month or ten days; forever and ever and ever, these will continue to vote for more of the same. The Santa Complex rides on. Even in Congress.
I see no way out until the Usual Suspects are unable to find any food in Wal-Mart nor in Publix, etc., and then decide to invade the Pantries belonging to the Makers and to You and to the Great One and, lastly, to the MOC and to SCOTUS and to Big Sis— at that point the fur will fly. The United Socialist State of America will go under Martial Law and then under a Dictatorship, very possibly during Lord 0’s Third or Fourth Terms..... Perhaps Comrade Putin will come to our rescue.
Mr. Limbaugh, the Party is already irrevocably splintered. We've held our nose for the last time. Mr. Romney may very well have turned out to be the greatest President who ever lived, but he was unfortunately not a great candidate. The combination of republican "leadership", a next man on the torem poll succession program, a take no prisoners in your approach to winning the Primary, but not the General election makes surrender seem like a reasonable approach. Sometimes the house has to be torn down to be rebuilt. That clearly is the case if the GOP is to recapture the conservative support again.
I'm only allowed to give a limited amount of money to any particular candidate. But if I were an entertainer, I could pretty much run hours-long commercials disguised as amusement. If I were a teacher, I could lecture my students, intimidate them, brainwash them and humiliate them for hours and hours and hours until they succumb. Put that together with a corrupt media and you've made toast.
Until these things change, we're never going to win. Young people eventually become old people, learn hard lessons and become conservative, but the supply of young people to vote democrat is endless.
WAKE UP Republicans! You can't even make a decent bumpersticker. THIS is how you're losing.

All we have to do is flip 5% of the voters. This can be done id we start education the uniformed on free market capitalism and the horrors of socialism. Time to move the discussion toward big themes and away from the petty.
Not time for surrender. Not time to contemplate our navels, either. It's time for fundamental political reorganization and restructuring. Time to stop listening to the know-it-all "experts" who have led us to this point.
So tell us, David - and others - what precisely must we do? Listen to the party Elites and be happy? It's clear the Elites do not want to listen to us - and they run the party. No, David. It's time to recognize our "irreconcilable differences" and dissolve the marriage. Its time for the conservative message to be unfiltered by the political know-it-all's. It may be a losing proposition in the short run, but it's our only hope in the long run. A house divided cannot stand. That includes the Republican party.
The Republican Party, and the USA, both died on November 6, 2012. It was a last stand for both, and we lost.
There are at least 11,000,000 illegals in this country (possibly double that) that will get citizenship before the 2014 congressional and gubinitorial elections. They will all vote Demon-RAT as ''thanks'' for that wonderful gift. That will automatically turn all red states blue.
Game over. Surrender complete. One party (lie-beral socialist Demon-RATS) with no checks or balances for whatever time this country has left.
They get their ''Socialist Paradise'' on the rotting corpse of the former USA. The rest of us get Hell on Earth and sad memories of the greatness this country once stood for.
And when that ''Socialist Paradise'' implodes under it's own weight, the only question is what language our new overseers will speak -- Spanish, Chinese or Arabic...
MSNBC anchor and NBC News political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd lashed out at Fox News for what he described as "pandering to an audience" over their coverage of President Obama´s enthusiastic handshake with Cuban dictator Raul Castro at Tuesday´s memorial service for Nelson Mandela. Chuck Todd ? @chucktodd Follow Really? An entire segment on a handshake? Good grief; pandering to an audience 10:37 AM - 10 Dec 2013 The irony of an MSNBC anchor accusing another network of pandering to their audience requires no explanation. Todd joins CNN, Politico´s Dylan Byers, and a number of other
Another week, another flimsy attack in Gawker´s years-long crusade against Fox News and its CEO, Roger Ailes. This time, Gawker excited liberal mass media with a scandalized report on legal minutiae related to a settlement between Fox News and a former executive, Brian Lewis, who headed up public relations for the channel. Ailes fired Lewis last July "for cause," the story lending itself to media suggesting the departure exclusively resulted from communications with Soros-backed Ailes biographer Gabriel Sherman. In fact, a Breitbart News report cites a source close to the story then saying
A new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) provided to Breitbart News exclusively ahead of its public release shows that President Barack Obama’s new amnesty for illegal aliens related to members of the U.S. military is a system full of loopholes. On Nov. 15, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a new memo detailing a new policy through which the Obama administration planned to exempt a new category of illegal aliens from deportation and other forms of enforcement of immigration law. CIS’s John Feere, in his report on the topic, detailed what the administration tried to make it
President Barack Obama may be recalling the lessons and story of Nelson Mandela at a memorial in South Africa today, but a series of photographs on the internet suggest another story may be being told. A series of pictures posted on the twitter account of ‘Stun’ show President Obama chatting with the prime minister of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, as Michelle Obama looks on in a not-so-pleased manner.
Four days before the legal deadline, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said she had not yet signed up for Obamacare, but was still mulling over the plans and what might work best for her family. As of Dec. 9, the deadline for members of Congress, Wasserman’s office had not responded to CNSNews.com’s inquiry on whether the lawmaker had enrolled. In a CNN interview on Dec. 5, host Wolf Blitzer asked Rep. Wasserman Schultz, “Because you’re a member of Congress, you have to go to the healthcare.gov website. Have you done that already?” The congresswoman said, “Yes, I’m in the middle
Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) proposed legislation on Monday that would prevent the federal government from giving bonuses or raises to people who run state-level health insurance exchanges under ObamaCare. Gardner´s bill, H.R. 3679, is a response to a recent effort by Patty Fontneau, who runs Colorado´s health insurance exchange, to get a raise and bonus. Gardner said Fontneau is seeking a raise even though the Colorado exchange is far behind its enrollment target so far this year. The Denver Post reported just 6,000 Coloradans were signed up through mid-November, even though the exchange expected that enrollment of 11,000 people would be a
The 2013 winner of top political player on Capitol Hill is… Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.). The senator stands out as the leader of the Democrats’ historic move to go to the “nuclear option,” ending the paralysis by threat of filibuster that tied the Senate in knots for the last five years. The junior senator from the Beaver State showed a lot of political bite, in the form of persistence, and has become a left-wing hero as a result. Merkley, with a big assist from Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), won the biggest vote of the year on Capitol Hill by convincing Democrats they were
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
