Why Obama Wins: Democrats
Purge Moderates, Republicans
Purge Conservatives

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Joel B. Pollak

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/27/2013 1:15:26 PM

Wednesday´s headlines provide an important lesson in the difference in strategy between the two political parties. In Chicago, the Obama operation quashed former Rep. Debbie Halvorson, who enjoyed an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association, in favor of anti-gun radical Robin Kelly, who openly declared her intention to become a "leader" in "banning guns." In Washington, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) met privately with President Barack Obama and praised his efforts for "comprehensive" immigration reform. Note the distinction. Democrats

Comments:
I can´t say that I disagree with him. I saw Debbie Halvorson on Fox one day and she is one of the most reasonable Democrats I have seen in years. No wonder they hate her.

Democrats play the great game to win. Republicans play the great game, just to be playing.

Yep...McCain and Graham should be completely absent from the game. Why
doesn´t leadership quash them?

For what it´s worth, it can be said that the Tea Party victories of 2010 did much to purge the Democrat Party of ´moderate´ ´Blue Dogs´. Nancy Pelosi may have been demoted to Minority Leader, but her side of the aisle is now the completely and permanently under the heel of her Progressive Caucus. WHEN there is another Dealey Plaza or Watergate crisis to exploit, this country will make swerve so sharply to the left as to make 1964 and 1974 look like mere blips on the screen.

A guy like Christie could get a big piece of market share in 2016 as a contrarian antiWashington democrat if he changed parties.

When speaking of "Republicans", please specify whether you mean the Establishment types who want to control everything, or the millions of conservative rank-and-file voters. There´s a huge difference.

Well cry me a river. The GOP created this mess. Remember what happened when the GOP controlled the House, the Senate and Bush was in the White house? Instead of fixing problems, they set the table for the Dems by acting like the liberal spenders they were. The base reacted and the rest is history. You don´t shaft your friends then expect them to support you. Looks like the GOP is still hasn´t figured it out.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush
Limbaugh, David Horowitz, and Me
PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 10:01:12 PM     Post Reply
The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:55:46 PM     Post Reply
Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent
Doesn´t Lead to ´Elevated or Even
Rational´ Obamacare Opposition
NewsBusters, by Tim Graham    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:47:27 PM     Post Reply
At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:36:25 PM     Post Reply
When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

Washington Post hires ultra-liberal former
union bully and nobody bats an eye
Daily Caller, by Brendan Bordelon    Original Article

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton instituted a Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The first one was completed in December 2010. Nearly four years later, AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Department Jen Psaki to name one thing that Clinton’s QDDR accomplished. Just one. She can’t. LEE: “Off the top of your head, can you name one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” PSAKI: “Well Matt, obviously it’s in an extensive, expansive process.” LEE: “So no.” PSAKI: “We’re looking at how it was done last time.” LEE: “Just one.” PSAKI: “I know, I’m making an important

Obama to free hundreds of drug
felons under clemency rules
designed to un-do mandatory
sentences from ´War on Drugs´ era

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article

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.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio
lack experience for 2016

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:
´splurging is the key to life´

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.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

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

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
