Tea partyers fight for
right-thinking GOP

Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/24/2013 11:26:52 PM

Though years in the brewing, the internal fight over the direction of the Republican Party has exploded onto front pages and political talk shows this month after strategist Karl Rove announced the formation of a new political action committee designed to promote more electable candidates. Fed up with what they see as a sellout of their small-government agenda and tired of Election Day disappointments, tea partyers and many conservatives are firing back. The outcome of the battle will define the party and how it tackles

“Bushism is closer to Obamaism than it is to Reaganism.” Indeed, it is.

I think this is much ado about nothing. For either a republican or tea partier to win the primary,they´re going to have to run on the same platform. I mean is one of Rove´s guys going to come out in favor of gay marriage or climate change? I doubt it,they´d be ran out of town.

I guess how far back you take this "struggle" depends on your political age. Regardless, it is like the Civil War: the disputes have been suppressed from time to time, but are yet to be finally settled. I wish the TP leaders success in recapturing control of the GOP, but am not optimistic. There are too many wealthy donors and entrenched powerful interests supporting the status quo. Time for us "useful idiots", as they think of us, to form a new party that we can control.

The Republican Party has been disappointing me for many elections now. Dole, McCain, now Romney. I just can´t do it any more. I won´t do it any more. "The Architect" has got to envision a future where we can win, lay out a master plan and build it into reality. Just like an Architect of a real building does. Bull on this New World Order crappola. The Tower of Babel was tried already and didn´t quite work. I want $2 a gallon gas, an SUV, my gun, my Super Size Big Gulp, Bible, and incandescent light bulbs for starters.

The GOP leadership is loaded with RINO progressives like McCain. The OFA is actively disqualifying local TPers or other conservative potential candidates on the local level, with the intent of running their own RINO´s in their places. I´ve read of 4 that dropped out so far.

The DNC is no longer liberal... just lefty progressives & the GOP has become righty progressives.

The Marxist/ Islamo alliance is destroying America.

Wth +50% of the population conservative or moderate, we should be able to start a real Patriot Party. Unfortunately, since the OFA is voting for us off the SS database, it doesn´t matter unless we get major election reform.

Good..s´bout time.
I´m sick and tired of rove´s idiotic distractions while our ship of state sinks. He´s worse than a dem with his treachery.

Thank you #4. And after that, maybe the tea party can give us back the hi-flo toilet and voluntary car insurance.

"Much ado about nothing", when it comes to Conservatives getting fed up with the GOP and it´s lockstep march to the left, you wish it was much ado about nothing. That is, a lot are recognizing the sinking ship of fools, and are abandoning that worthless scow.

This last weekend a quiet battle was fought for control of the GOP in Michigan at the GOP Convention. I was a delegate there. I say quiet as I haven´t seen any national coverage.

A strong TEA Party team of Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat ran against the establishment and the pick of Governor Snyder. Despite being out spent by at least 5 to 1, Todd and Cindy lost by only 32 votes. They have rattled the establishment. Cindy told me that in a meeting with the Lt. Governor after the election that the TEA Party will be listened to now. We will see.

So when you hear that the TEA Party or Conservatism is dead, it ain´t here in Michigan!

I was also at the Michigan Repub Convention. From my vantage point, the process for State Party Chair seemed to have been carried out at an adult level. I voted for Todd when he ran for State Edu. Board. This time, my concern (and vote to retain schostak) was based on what I´ll call ´logistics´. I have watched Oakland County GOP change when the Religious Right took over and donations droppped, the HQ in B-ham was relinguished. In my precinct, there are professionals who are not of the RelRght and get nervous about the Jesus-specific language. My suggestion is to talk solutions to problems and only work on the 2-3 top (economic/fiscal)issues, avoid those that do not need to be fought.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat
of 2010 midterm disaster
Washington Post, by Wesley Lowery    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/13/2014 10:16:38 PM     Post Reply
On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

For Hillary Clinton and Boeing,

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results.
