Framing the Issues
American Thinker, by Gary Aminoff

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/7/2013 2:53:44 PM

The Democrats are playing a strategic game to recover the House in 2014. They are playing to win, and they are playing well. They are keeping the Republicans constantly on defense, not allowing them to frame the issues in ways which are clearly understandable to the American people and that show that Republicans are acting in the best interest of the American people.

The GOP HAS no offense.

We are going to see a GOP train wreck in 2014. They are simply incapable of controlling the message. The CrapMedia is already on board with the WH and will hammer home the Obama narrative. Expect more presidential giveaways between now and Nov. 2014. Obama will use the latest tax increase to buy more votes and further sink any chance for GOP advancement. In fact, it doesn`t even matter if the dems retake the House. They will get what they want anyway and blame any fallout on the GOP.

Works e-v-e-r-y time.

She whose name we dare not speak does a pretty gosh darn good job of framing issues and building support. But we can´t have that now. She´s not our kind, dear.

The bomb-throwing Left will soon wear out their welcome.

Tactics cannot obscure the devastation of Obamacare´s reach in 2014.
Tactics do not obliterate higher taxes, nor the wretched economy, etc.

Bamster goes down in 2014.

Let me help:
Step one: marginalize the people clamoring for a third party. Happily show them the door.
Step Two: focus on creating economic opportunity rather than budget cuts. Cuts are necessary, but the GOP doesn´t have the votes in Congress or in the White House to get it done and budget cuts are very unpopular.
Step three: be nice to Obama. Treat him like you would any other president elected twice. This will drive his base insane and they will start clamoring for more unpopular positions like cap and trade.
Step four: offer to trade debt ceiling hikes for expanded drilling on public lands, keystone approval and other measures that will improve economic conditions. Rhetorically denounce tax hikes not as "socialism" but rather as harmful to economic growth. Ask voters: do tax hikes create or destroy economic activity? Then, in these tough economic times, do you want more or less economic activity?
Step five: stop hiding on Fox News and talk radio and go on the lib shows and beat their ideas to a pulp. It can be done.
Step six: reelect Michael Steele Chairman of the GOP. Dump Mitch McConnell.

They will not be caught sitting on the front porch in 2014. They´ll employ the massive get out the vote, legit and not.

We need to be active in our home States, town, State-wide. The Dem/Lefties are clever at dispiriting their opponents. Some on our side too easily fold, quit. So the Lefties figure what worked before will work again.

This goes back to the TEA Party article, as that group completely surprised the Lefties. They, however, do not turn on each other. Note how almost every pundit on our side turned the knives on Repubs.

Like one of the Lefties´ favorites, Lenin, BO will have NO factionalism. You will not hear any criticism from anyone on the Dem/Left side... no... matter... what. They are totally united against Republicans (of every stripe, it doesn´t matter).

You will NEVER hear Dems talk about splitting off to a "third party" or staying home on election day.

We must learn from our political enemies.

It is difficult to frame a message when the LSM won´t even give you a chance to speak it. There have been conservatives who have held news conferences and made media statements that did explain the situation -- and those went nowhere, most never even getting airtime.

#5´s suggestion of going on liberal media and at least getting to an audience has merit. But it has to be an extremely well prepared person who can go on those shows and not get trounced. The conservative will almost always win on logic, numbers, and facts -- but he/she will only have a single shot before getting shut down by the host if it looks like the argument is going to stick. Once it appears that the conservative is getting a point across, most of the LSM shows will interrupt and then shout down the conservative or attack with irrelevant emotional responses. It can be done, but be prepared to take a beating and only get 1 or 2 points made per show.

Or, #7, the media might let the Republicans talk, but will always cast what they say in a negative light. You just won´t ever get them on your side.

The pain of Obamacare will be apparent by then, jobs will still be scarce, college graduates will be flipping burgers and democrats own guns too. Obama and democrats are pushing too far.

If you live in flyover country, lay in a supply of popcorn and get ready to watch a continuing comedy drama being staged for your amusement by the progressives of San Francisco. The driving force is the classic dirty little secret of progressivism, greed and envy, and these deadly sins are amply on display in Baghdad-by-the-Bay these days.(snip)Yesterday, hundreds of SEIU members rallied in front of Twitter HQ to denounce the greed of the company that provides jobs and plenty of other tax revenue to assorted governments that employ SEIU members. John Coté reports for the SF Chronicle: City nurses [who

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me. My white Democrat opponent was even caught on camera

Time for a little Koch

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open. It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats.(snip) The ads practically write themselves: Mary Landrieu’s Majority Leader says the Koch Brothers are un-American.

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

The internal contradictions of the progressive alliance that dominates San Francisco have erupted into violence, and there is every sign it will continue. Conservatives have an opportunity if we are clever. (snip)I had not set foot on Hayes Street for at least a couple of decades when I went there last week. I was utterly shocked by the transformation, and more than that, by the hostility of some of the people I was with toward the newcomers. Twitter’s headquarters is nearby, as are other high tech firms, and around lunch time the sidewalks were crowded with brusque, expensively-dressed people hurrying

The Beat Goes On:
Opposing Obama Is Racist

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Justice Stevens thinks he knows
how to ´fix´ the Second Amendment
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/13/2014 9:13:10 AM     Post Reply
Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

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

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
