How Conservatives Can Win
in Blue-State America: Lessons
from South Africa´s Opposition

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Joel B. Pollak

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/11/2012 9:12:28 AM

The new conventional wisdom in the aftermath of the 2012 elections is that Republicans face two challenges: first, that the United States is no longer a center-right nation, but a center-left one; second, that the country’s demographic shift away from whites will make it tougher for Republicans to win votes. The proposed solution is that Republicans must compromise on the party’s core policies, from immigration to taxation to social issues. The conventional wisdom is wrong. I once worked in South Africa for a centrist

FTA: " Rumor has it that Paul Ryan wanted to take the Republican argument to inner cities and make the argument for individual freedom..."

Thus bypassing the LSM propaganda which ensures the ignorant inner city types remain ignorant. The RNC and establishment types are very much libtards. Ryan had the right idea. The old RNC dinosaurs can´t expire too soon.

We need to do what the world did to South Africa. Boycott racists. That means we no longer have anything to do with blacks, don´t watch their TV shows or movies, don´t go to their concerts or buy their CD´s. Don´t go to athletic events where the majority of athletes are black. Don´t go into shops that are owned by blacks. No one here would associate with white racists so why should we put up with black racists?

#2

You cannot free slaves who don´t wish to be free.

The CBC has made their lives on the plantation something desirable.

Sane people will never be able to understand that mentality.

I have given up trying, or for that matter caring.

Great advice. It´s especially important to note that change is incremental. Not that long ago Republicans were getting 15% of the black vote. That could be a goal going forward.

That´s right #3 lets get the blacks. Never mind it was women that moved back to Obama to give him his win. Shall we boycott womens businesses and shows. The problem is not that blacks voted for Obama, the problem is conservative traitors stayed home on election day.

To hell with winning back a nation of leeches, it’s time to fire on Fort Sumter, and start our own Tea Party government. The other side will very soon collapse under the weight of their own debt and corruption. Then we take back what’s left of them under our terms. Just dreaming.

Pollack is so right! Only a week before the election, some Black activists in Chicago were protesting an Obama fund raiser, and then marched to protest against NBC being racist.

There was a link in the comments under the article to the video. The most humorous part was the protestors telling the people INSIDE NBC they weren´t there to hurt them, they´re just tired of ACORN and Rainbow push.

We have to find a way to show the young people in inner city neighborhoods that the way out is not through crime, but hard work. Why aren´t we mentoring them in the American dream?

For as long as I have been paying attention, the GOP gets trapped into following the dance of the Democrats. I´m seeing the calls now on how to deal with the Latino issue and women’s issues the like. The GOP will always fail at been Democrat Lite.

Pollak brings forth a template with considerable merit. Its not how well South Africa is doing, but how the Democratic Alliance grew their influence and how those ideas can be employed here. The GOP needs to start thinking in terms of 20 years, not 2. They have to start out ACORNing ACORN. Boots-on-the-ground where it counts.

The college-level education system was lost long ago. The GOP needs to develop its own education system that takes entrepreneurialism, freedom and independence to the very places that need it most. Which is pretty much everywhere. And most importantly, such a system can’t look, taste or smell anything GOP. This is something that will take generations to mature. Its called commitment.

If anyone saw the county-by-county popular vote map, you can instantly see the USA is NOT a center-left country by a long shot. And that is how it looks with suppressed voter turn-out. Commenter #7 is close in his/her evaluations, but any system must be worked within the system we already have. Stealth. Entrepreneurialism. Freedom. Independence. Stick to those issues and Latino and women’s issues and the like take care of themselves.

Good article, good advice. However, the Dems have one thing the GOP will never have - Big Media in the pocket.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat
of 2010 midterm disaster
Washington Post, by Wesley Lowery    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/13/2014 10:16:38 PM     Post Reply
On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

For Hillary Clinton and Boeing,
a beneficial relationship

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
