Obama´s Goal Is to Break
the Republican Party

American Thinker, by James G. Wiles

Original Article

In the pre-9/11 movie "Independence Day," an embattled American president questions a captured alien. What, the fictional President - in full Rodney King mode - asks, do you invaders want us earthlings to do so that our two peoples can live together in peace? The answer, of course, is famous. "Die." That´s pretty much President Obama´s position to the Republicans - especially the GOP majority in the House of Representatives. In a penetrating analysis today in Washington Free Beacon, Matthew Continetti writes of how "a president known for his passivity and cool...displayed enormous and impressive energy

So, more compromise is the solution here? Sorry..that is what got us here in the first place. Just possibly the author is correct. If so the solution may be to let it go to hell and try to start over, because more compromise is leading us further down the rat hole

They hate us. Nothing short of our demise will do. There is no compromise for that, is there?

All the plans of mice and men... IMO he is trying to drown the Republican Party by pushing it under water like a beach ball. It will spring up only harder. Let us see.

That´s not his goal, that´s a stepping stone to his real goal. The Republicans are (sometimes) in the way of the destruction of the Constitution and full totalitarianism in the US.

Good news for him, though, is that, although it´s harder than with Democrats, it appears that Republicans in office can be bought and/or intimidated.

Despotism 101.
Define the opposition and destroy it.
And it cuts both ways.

BO has absolutely no desire to accept anything other than his own views. Compromise means that everyone else capitulates to his wonderfulness. He is narrow minded and and egoist.

The only amazing thing here is that he preaches compromise and respect but provides absolutely none of it himself. We were told he would be an excellent uniter of the Country but he is singularly unqualified to do anything like that. His whole presidency has been an exercise of bullying, unilateral power. When a Republican took the slightest step in the direction of presidential control, the MSM howled about the end of the world. But they cheer BO on. It´s pathetic.

And the reality is, if Conservatives got political power they would be undoing the progressives actions and as much of their party as they could because the two parties have become polar opposites and cannot function together. You cannot go left and right at the same time.

Most of us have seen this for some time. I used to think it was pure evil, now I´m not so sure. I don´t know whether the R party is worth saving.

The question is what will arise to take its place. There will ALWAYS be an opposition to tyranny, the only question is what it will look like and what it will be called.

The Republicans need to start thinking like generals engaged in a war. Actually, they need to think like Navy SEALS. It´s amazing they haven´t been able to figure out how to deal with this despot. Obama is not going to let up one iota. He´s ruthless and heartless and drunk on his own power. This is why there needs to be a fearless strategy to deal with him.

I´ll say it again and again. The only thing that is going to stop the Dims from destroying this country and impose communism on us is another revolution. And when that happens (I believe it will, just don´t know when) there will have to be made some corrections to the Constitution to insure the same thing NEVER happens again. Start with term limits on all members of Congress. Throw out the entire tax code and replace it with a simple system in which EVERYONE pays something. And make the selection of Senators back to what was originally intended. There are more changes that need to be made, but the original document is a good starting place. And we don´t need to change the original intent of the Constitution, just some of the ways we get there.

I have always envied the Democrat´s ability to keep their eye focused on the ball. For example, Chuck Schummer finally got into line to support Chuck Hagel.

If only Obama would devote as much energy to destroying our true enemies as he does the Republicans.

As a conservative, I can tell you that after all the years I have watched the republican party edge closer and closer to the dems, both in principle AND in the sleaze factor, it is NOT worth saving, if you are truly conservative.

Saving it would mean that conservatives would need to bite their tongues, get in line and follow the RINO rule that has been firmly established, and then, from within, turn it back around.

It ain´t gonna happen folks. The conservatives are either long gone, or are reaching their "fed up" point as each day, and each blunder goes by. The GOP Is poisoned lethally.

Obamas attend Easter services at
Nineteenth Street Baptist Church

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud
Tampa Tribune [FL], by Michelle Bearden & Staff    Original Article

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and baby Prince George flew into Australia´s capital Canberra on Sunday night and made sure to co-ordinate their family colours of royal blue. The Royal Family stepped off the plane as a trio, Kate in an above-the-knee Stella McCartney dress, which matched George´s knit cardigan and William´s blue checked tie.

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
