RNC Launches New Project
to Grow Grassroots Movement

Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/23/2013 12:14:14 PM

The Republican National Committee has launched a new website with hopes of engaging activists to help "analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the 2012 election cycle efforts of the RNC" and "is reaching out to hundreds of individuals including RNC Members, grassroots activists, donors, elected officials, community leaders and other important partners to help the Republican Party form a solid path going forward." The RNC believes in order to to properly prepare for 2016, as rumblings of who the GOP candidates will be have already started, activists must be engaged in the conversation about improvement.

Comments:
Heavy sigh. I thought we already had a grassroots movement, the Tea Party. Unless we get rid of RINO´s we are looking at perpetual defeats. This is not at all encouraging. The video is pathetic. They just don´t get it.

What the OP said ...

And we need to get rid of Chris Christy, Mitch McConnell, John Boner, and myriad other RINO hacks ...

Oh, and esp. Karl Rove

Wake me up when they declare the GOParty is dead and buried and we have a new, inspiring, and constitutionally based philosophy to get behind.

That´s just adoreable, the GOP still wish us to believe there is a viable voting system. Can´t help but think back on a report about a whistle blower who worked for a software firm developing a program for a Spanish firm who stated that their program would generate a 51% win for the candidate of their choice. 140% of one Colorado district voted for obama...etc.

Well #6, what handsome, brave, principled-to-the-bone House conservative stood up and challenged Boehner?

Too many self-styled "true" conservatives enjoy bytching rather than addressing reality. JB may not be the ideal leader, but he is out there in the arena giving it his best effort in a very poor environment. Trouble is, some people here expected, or continue to expect, Boehner to re-run the 2012 election. That is not his job and never was. He is a legislator, not a candidate. Give the man a break. (Fat chance).

We disaffected, overtaxed conservatives should revive our own grass roots movement. Many of us were Tea Partiers. What happened to them? Never see or hear much anymore, was it really just a passing fury - then beat to death by Media (with more than a little help from the establishment rinos)? Perhaps we SHOULD seek a leader for it. It was a most effective movement and gave some life to the moribund Republicans. Why has it seemingly faded almost away now?

The RNC is over. Now that we know that Republicans gave up their right to challenge Democrat election fraud back in the 80´s, the RNC is just a useless money pit. They can´t take care of their candidates, so they are of no use to the voters.

Nothing they label "grass roots" is going to change that.

This is good! Engaging people is vitally important. Listening is profoundly important. Creating a new image is necessary.

The GOP seems, to millions, to be a party of old, rich, white guys. Men who don´t like women, don´t like gays, don´t like Latinos, don´t like immigrants, don´t like anyone who doesn´t look like them, think like them and believe EXACTLY what they believe.

I´m with the OP. We need to get rid of the RINOS or the GOP all together.

I´m with the Tea Party and until Boehner, McCain, et. al. (and that includes new RINO Ryan) are out, I´m not coming back to the party anytime soon, if ever. The leaders of the GOP ARE THE PROBLEM. (caps for emphasis). They have no clue how to fight back, (especially Alinsky-style), or how to use modern technology and social media to get their message out. Of course, their message is weak, supplicating, whining, and not conservative anymore. GOP... just go away and let those of us who actually care about this country take over.

... and like others, until they aggressively go after and call out voter fraud, they will continue to lose every election.

The election was outright stolen via voter fraud. Period.

The GOP needs MANY MANY courageous, dedicated and faithful, ´Paul & Paulette Reveres,´ with the wisdom, enthusiasm & good cheer of a Pres. Reagan and Gov. Sarah Palin. Future GOP leaders will be found among such accomplished American patriots of integrity. There are already several possibilities throughout the states, Gov. Walker, the Texas Attorney General among others.

It will be helpful when the reactionaries stop accusing everyone who disagrees on any particular of being a RINO.
I attend many GOP meetings and find far too many single issue attendees. It is a result of such of "my way or the highway" attitudes that we cannot support a winning candidate.
We also don´t listen well. If we did, our policies would win great support from the persuadable. We don´t persuade. We lecture. We have to win the argument. We don´t understand the maxim: Convince a man against his will and find him unconvinc-ed,
still.

Quinn Campaign Wonders: Black
Republicans Like Jewish Nazis?
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo     Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/23/2014 6:21:16 PM     Post Reply
Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn is in some hot water with the Jewish community after his campaign tweeted—and then quietly deleted—several messages urging backers to read an article comparing black Republican voters to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis. Chicago Sun Times readers were stunned last week to find that writer Neil Steinberg has penned a column comparing black supporters of Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis against their brethren. “As a general rule, individuals will sell out the interests of their groups in return for personal benefit,” Steinberg wrote in his column, which claimed that

Ted Cruz weighed in on the Cliven Bundy situation with Texas radio host Chad Hasty Tuesday, and he called the standoff between Bundy supporters (some armed) and federal agents a tragic situation, but one that was the “culmination” of how President Obama has been pushing for a bigger and more intrusive federal government. Cruz said that since Obama took over, “we have seen our liberty under assault” from a government “hell-bent on expanding its authority over every aspect of our lives.” He went after Obama for eroding the nation’s constitutional liberties and not understanding the point of the federal government is to

   

 



 
Ala. Supreme Court: ´Unborn

In a case about a pregnant woman who used cocaine and endangered her unborn child, the Alabama Supreme Court affirmed (8-1) that the word “child” includes “an unborn child,” and that the law therefore “furthers the State’s interest in protecting the life of children from the earliest stages of their development.” In his concurring opinion, Alabama Chief Justice Roy S. Moore wrote that “an unborn child has an inalienable right to life from its earliest stages of development,” and added, “I write separately to emphasize that the inalienable right to life is a gift of God that civil government must secure

Bill coming to block bonuses for

Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) on Wednesday said he plans to introduce a bill to prevent Internal Revenue Service employees who are delinquent on their taxes from receiving bonuses. A report this week from the Treasury Department inspector general for tax administration found that the IRS had given more than $2.8 million in bonuses and other rewards to workers who had been cited for various types of misconduct, including a failure to pay their taxes. A Johnson aide said the congressman’s bill would prohibit the IRS from giving bonuses to employees who owe back taxes that are not caused by willful

Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday called Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent in the Supreme Court’s latest affirmative action ruling “courageous.” At an event on diversity within the Justice Department, Holder said it’s tempting to think the struggle to overcome discrimination has ended when people like him or President Obama have reached the nation’s highest ranks. But, he said, the fight for equal rights is not over. "[This] great country still has a ways to go before our founding promise of equal justice and equal opportunity is fully realized,” he said. Holder quoted Sotomayor in the dissent she filed a day

Hastert Gathers Chicago
Republicans To Push Amnesty
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle    Original Article

Former Speaker of the House Denny Hastert, now a K Street lobbyist, is gathering with several Chicago Republicans for a public event aimed at yet again building support in Washington for amnesty, Roll Call reports. Hastert, now a lobbyist for Dickstein Shapiro, has been pushing comprehensive immigration reform for some time. In a February Politico op-ed, he endorsed the House GOP leadership immigration “principles” writing of illegal aliens that “we should provide them with a path to citizenship.” Hastert is headlining an Illinois Business Immigration Coalition (IBIC) conference at Chicago’s prestigious Chicago Club on Tuesday. IBIC is billing the event as a

So long, Ohio. According to a federal judge Monday in Henry v. Himes, the U.S. Constitution now requires that the laws of one state automatically supersede those of Ohio, whether or not Ohio approves. The circumstances surround same-sex marriage, though the precise legal issue is one that has been flying below the radar for some time – the recognition by one state of another state’s same-sex marriage. In the case, several same-sex couples with marriage licenses from California, Massachusetts, and New York sought recognition of their relationships in their home state of Ohio, where marriage is defined as between only one

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
