Time Heals All Republicans
American Spectator, by Brandon Crocker

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/12/2012 6:14:00 AM

I am a naturally optimistic fellow, not easily depressed. But on election night, despite a supply of cheap champagne and leftover Halloween candy to boost my spirits, I went to bed thoroughly demoralized and in the dumps. The piece by Robert Stacy McCain that appeared on this site the next morning ("Doomed Beyond all Hope of Redemption") pretty much summed up my feelings. But Time, the Great Healer, soon started to have its salubrious effect on my psyche, and I was able to wade through some post-mortem analyses without getting physically ill,

Tortuous essay in that it is three quarters diatribe against conservate beliefs and presents apologetics for compromising principles to supposedly reach unity. The remainder warns us not to castigate as the author has done.
I truly believe it´s time to consider forming a replacement party to attempt to rid us of the nonsense.

The beginning of this article summed up just exactly how we felt. Unless Conservatives become as aggressive as Democrats they will continue to lose elections.

Yeah, but what´s going to heal the United States as a free country once it goes down the Socialist toilet and the Constitution becomes just a piece of history because the Supreme Court was taken over by Marxists?

FTA: Even with a strong Democrat turnout, the basic philosophy that is the core common bond of Republicans resonated with a majority of the electorate.

He´s right, of course. And, he´s also right that we have to find a way to get good candidates through the primaries. No more Akins and Mourdocks.

There´s no reason to throw in the towel when you look at how Obama won. $800 billion to his donors and supporters,6 trillion in new debt and a huge expansion of safety net giveaways to non Americans.Millions in foreign donations, overcounts in highly liberal districts.A complicit media.

Whenever republicans delve into right wing social engineering or dept. creations,it only leads to disaster. We´re spending billions on head start and kids are further behind in reading.The EPA was Nixon´s idea and they´re going to shut down all conventional energy except what they need.Bush´s energy dept.loans for developing green alternatives has become a huge grab bag for Obama cohorts.The medicare drug bill didn´t buy love from a single senior.

Romney said during one of the debates he would continue most of Obama´s policies. Did that help him win. How about reaching across the aisle,a mandate they always put on the right,not the left.

We need a firebrand with common sense to penetrate thick skulls.

Learn to match the ´Rats´ ground game as in the Scott Walker Recall. Romney switched to electronic advertising, Dolphin/Orca (or whatever) in Wisconsin and got walloped.

Have to agree #4 once they get the majority it´s all over. One ray of hope I read last night there are several states formulating petitions to secede from the Union. I just might be moving to Texas.

#9, Texas isn´t going to be seceding, although you´re welcome to come on down and enjoy the advantages of living in this fine state.

The secession talk is nonsense and extremely unproductive. We can take steps to correct what went wrong in this election and we have a whole stable of excellent young men and women to lead the way. Texans don´t retreat, #9.

I´m with #1 on the replacement party idea. We´ve tried working within the GOP to push them even a little bit back to what they´re supposed to stand for, but all we get is push-back in return. Let´s face the cold hard reality here: The Republicans are as progressive as the Progressives - or, as I call them, the Pro-Regressives. They want us all subservient and beholden. They are our abusers, and we apologize when they beat us up.

It´s either fight like we believe in ourselves and our country, or we all go to Re-Education Camp. Yay.

Remember the movie Red Dawn? (The original, that is.) Remember the Mayor, who cozied up to the invaders? Remember the one dad who ended up in the drive-in theater, behind razor wire? ´´Avenge me!´´

Our Forefathers are crying out now for us to avenge them. We are the kids in the mountains. We can do it to, but we have to become guerilla fighers. Take no prisoners.

In the figurative sense, of course.

We need a true conservative party, based on our original founding ideas and principles. Nothing less will save this country.

Nobody will take my core beliefs from me. Yes, this hurt, but if I look at it through the prism of "all politics is local" then everything will be fine.

Our state is firmly in the red - and 30 of 50 states either have a GOP governor or Republican-controlled state house...

...BTW...the remake of Red Dawn opens Thanksgiving Day...looking forward to it (this time we´re invaded by the North Koreans...)

#5, Romney was neither an Akin nor a Mourdock.

He lost, too.

New grand jury expected to be seated
in Gov. Rick Perry´s ethics case
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

Texan, 23, Headed To State Prison
For Urinating On The Alamo
Smoking Gun, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/15/2014 12:27:47 PM     Post Reply
A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

Republicans, let´s get it over with. Fast forward to the finish line. Avoid the long and winding primary road. It can only weaken the nominee. And we know who he—yes, he—has to be. Not Jeb Bush, who plainly is unsuited to be president. He is insufficiently hostile to Mexicans. He holds heretical views on the Common Core, which, as we well know, is the defining issue of our time. And he´s a Bush. Another installment of a political dynasty just isn´t going to fly with the American people, who want some fresh blood in their politics. Unless the dynasty is

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month. While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
