1. House still in GOP hands Republicans held onto most of the gains made in the 2010 midterm elections, enabling conservatives to keep Obama from imposing a radical agenda on the nation in his second term. House Speaker John Boehner signaled as much, saying on election night that Americans sent a clear message by keeping the House in GOP hands. “With this vote, the American people have also made clear that there is no mandate for raising tax rates,” Boehner said. 2. Popular vote still close With a 50.5 percent to 48 percent popular vote deficit, Romney outperformed McCain’s percentage

Well, OK - I do need the silver lining. Thanks for trying. I still despair for the home of the free and the land of the brave, however.

No it´s becoming the home of the entitled and the soon-to-be-enslaved.
Now that a crash is inevitable, the only bright spot I can think of is that when they blame the crash on Republicans, it will still have taken place during the term of a Democratic president.

Yes, a very few bright spots, but is better than nothing. And this idea that the youth vote dropped 6% in its support for obama is nothing to celebrate. The article thinks the youth are ´slowly catching on´ to the evil that is obama. But if they haven´t learned the lesson from the past 4 years, then another 4 years isn´t going to matter either. Nice try though.

Note that the list forgets to mention Ted Cruz who was about dead in the water this time last year, but because of a groundswell of tea party and conservative support rose to become a Senator.

These are merely spin stories of a Pyrrhic victory

Lining #2 a mere 50.5 % of the popular vote is what is scaring them. That is why there is a cacophony in unison asking the GOP to compromise its core principlea, enter the group grievances cesspool. This is a game they can beat us handily.

I learned that we can blame Sarah for the one Senate seat we did pick up. I told you she was trouble and the party should continue to distance itself from her.

Demographically we are now outnumbered. With inconsistent voting rules and expanding class of selfish and ignorant looters and moochers, the GOP may never win the presidency again. However, a new goal of controlling the House and Senate, along with as many state governorships could make holding the Oval Office irrelevant. Expansion and promoting of the Tea Party may be worth a look as well.

Popular vote still close? Indications of monumental vote fraud across the country would blow that number out of the water. Even more troubling was the electoral massacre -- what, 332-206? -- the left´s vote stealing monster gets bigger the more it devours.

I´m thinking the bright spots are dying embers.

I agree with #10 that Bush may be the last Republican president for many, many years. The idea that the GOP may be left with no alternative but to contend for the House and
Senate is interesting, but, even here, the odds are not in its favor. The real problem is that, over the past five decades, the progressives have successfully managed to infiltrate and overwhelm our society. They "own" our education system, K thru the doctoral thesis; our entertainment industry and its complete rewrite of what is right and wrong; union management everywhere; the main stream media; the great majority of the votes from our welfare society; and most of the local government bureaucracy responsible for managing the polls and counting votes. (Does anyone believe there will be any prosecutions in the Florida county where %141 of the voters turned out and practically everyone voted for Obama?) At present, the GOP does not appear equipped to comprehend, let alone contend with, how our country has evolved. The best it can hope for is to be occasionally allowed to rent a little space in the world of policy making and other governance. Conservatives are up against both a powerful Democrat machine and a Republican Party that has, for too many years, gone along to get along, and it is going to be a long, long time before we might hope to see any light in this current tunnel.

Stop putting lipstick on a pig! We have lost a number of our God given liberties and will lose more if we don´t find a way to stop that monstrosity in the White House. I am beginning to despair that the GOP will do it. These tiny pinpricks of light do not change the fact that we are no longer the Land of the Free.

The GOP has a major responsibility in the loss of the Senate. They refused to support in any significant way Scott Brown and gave scant or no support to Mourdock and Akin because of their supposed gaffes that the demns were allowed to blow way out of proportion to the point of lies.

The Tea Party needs to pour on the coals and work out a plank that will not be a single issue and can be accepted by a wide spectrum of voters. Romney and the GOP narrowed the issues that scared independents off the plantation.

Cults In Our Midst: Patty Hearst
And The Brainwashing Of America
The Federalist, by Stella Morabito    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 5:39:12 AM     Post Reply
Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

Not all of the Pulitzers were

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

   

 



 
Feds Begin Fingerprinting ´High Risk´
Medicare Providers and Suppliers
Weekly Standard, by Jeryl Bier    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 4:52:57 AM     Post Reply
Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste. The new requirements are spelled

Obama Administration Wants UN to Come Up With
Fake Numbers to Back ‘Climate Change’ Legislation
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 4:33:40 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

Further, Davis´ has an overall 47 percent unfavorable rating while Abbott enjoys a favorable rating of 40 percent. Among women, Davis´ approval favorable rating is just 32 percent.

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
