There Are RINOs but Never DINOs
American Thinker, by Steve Feinstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/11/2018 12:50:52 PM

The RINO is an interesting political phenomenon and relatively new. It stands for Republican in Name Only, meaning that although the office-holder is a registered Republican, his voting record and public statements are too often aligned with liberal causes. Charlie Baker, the current governor of Massachusetts, is a classic example of the RINO. He openly and proudly supports the Bathroom Bill (a Mass. ballot question that will allow any person of any sex or "gender identity" to use any public bathroom he chooses); refuses to come out strongly against sanctuary cities; and will not champion the rollback of Massachusetts´s onerous

Republicans tell you that they are Republicans when they are running. And some Dems tell you that they are Republicans when they are running.

No Republicans tell you that they are Dems when they are running. They can´t stand the lying that would be required. Dems have no problem with lying.

Pretty good article.

If the RINO label is simply a matter of party, though, then Zell Miller would seem to have been a solid DINO. But it´a a little more complicated than just party fakery, as RINOs seem to campaign as bi-partisan conservatives but govern as liberals, while Zell ran as a conservative Democrat and voted conservative.

There are no DINOs because Republicans haven´t enough mind to think of running in the Democrat primary in Democrat states, saying they are Democrats. Democrats are underhanded, and do this all the time. It´s one of the Democrat´s strategies, it works, and its a table banger for the Democrats.

The Republican Party, pre-Trump, allowed discussion from conservatives and so-called moderates and libertarians.
There exists now, in the party post-Trump, a strong desire on the part of the triumphant populists to silence all differing views, end discussion of reasonable policy differences, and enforce a rigid groupthink on the Republican party.
If successful, the US will have two major parties incapable of thought or innovation. It will have two parties disrespectful of tradition and lessons learned.
Await the day with fear.

RINO is not a relatively no concept. We had the most prominent RINO in Washington assume room temperature not long ago, in Arizona, and he was a RINO his whole career. Since the election, RINOs like Ryan are coming out, they´ve just hidden it up until now.

NEW YORK – John Rich is challenging his fellow country music stars to a friendly debate over the Second Amendment. Rich, one half of the country duo Big & Rich, has never been one to shy away from politics. And when the "Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy" singer heard his friends and fellow artists Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line´s Tyler Hubbard were part of a new push for gun control, the proud Texan was really interested to hear their side.

Foreign nationals from 24 countries — including four people with Interpol warrants for their arrests — were among the 105 arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement during a five-day sweep. The agency announced the arrests Friday in a news release. “Our focus has been and will continue to be on arrests of illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes or those who pose a threat to public safety,” said John Tsoukaris, director of the Newark field office. The people arrested ranged in age from 18 to 65 years old. The agency said more than 80 percent had either

Riots in Paris have turned violent as armed police failed to quell thousands of ´yellow vest´ protesters demonstrating over living costs and proposed tax rises in France, despite more than 700 arrests by midday today. French police fired tear gas and water cannons trying to stop thousands of yellow-vested protesters from converging on the presidential palace to express their anger at high taxes and Emmanuel Macron.Dramatic photographs offer a snapshot into the volatile atmosphere surrounding the streets of France, as protesters continue to demand more concessions from the government after Macron´s U-turn on the fuel tax.

On Friday incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler, told CNN’s Manu Raguthat he will shut down the GOP-led Judiciary-Oversight investigation into the FBI’s actions in 2016. Nadler said the investigation on how the Obama administration spied on the Trump Campaign during the 2016 is a waste of time. (Tweet) Democrat crimes will not be investigated. How Stalin-esque! Rep.

The legal dodge used by James Comey to exonerate Hillary Clinton from her prima facie crimes in using an unsecured server for official business won’t be any help to the Clinton Foundation as it faces charges coming from whistleblowers. Clinton Inc. criminal defense lawyers trying to hide behind the word “intent” won’t work because the Clintons were previously warned early and often about improper compliance:.. internal legal reviews that the foundation conducted on itself in 2008 and 2011. Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and "quid pro quo" promises made to

A Survival Strategy for Conservatives

As Special Counsel Robert Mueller racks up the guilty pleas for minor infractions by supporters of President Trump unrelated to Russian collusion while ignoring the crimes committed by members of the FBI, DoJ, and Hillary Clinton, it should come as no surprise that conservatives are playing the wrong game. Even after Republicans won the White House, Senate, and House of Representatives, they acted as if they had lost. Always on the defensive and forever begging for forgiveness from an ideology that never grants it, conservatives had better change their tactics or get used to coming in second place in a

Trump Relaxes National Obama-

The Trump administration has officially rolled back Obama-era lunch guidelines that promoted heightened nutrition standards for the national school lunch program. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010, was one of former first lady Michelle Obama´s biggest legacies. The increased nutrition standards for school lunches were meant to make schools healthier and played a prominent role in the first lady´s Let´s Move campaign. Under the guidelines, schools were required to offer students fruits and vegetables every day, to increase their offerings of whole grain foods, to offer only fat-free or low-fat milk, to

President Trump appears poised to make Nick Ayers his third chief of staff as he prepares for re-election, replacing John Kelly with a wunderkind political operative whose confident, no-nonsense manner has ruffled feathers but also stirred admiration. Trump is poaching the 36-year-old Ayers from Vice President Mike Pence, for whom he has served as chief of staff since the summer of last year. Beginning in his early 20s, Ayers served as campaign manager on gubernatorial and presidential campaigns, directed the Republican Governors Association, worked on the Trump-Pence 2016 operation, and advised several Republican candidates over the years as an outside

A new report appears to admit that there was an effort by the DOJ and the FBI to “rein in” President Donald Trump in the “chaotic” days following the firing of then FBI Director James Comey. Top FBI officials and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly floated options for dealing with the president, whom they believed needed to be checked, even before he fired Comey in May 2017, according to CNN.

Prominent journalists gathered this week to discuss why President Trump sits in the White House and came to the following conclusion: “Gullible” voters and “unfair” coverage — toward Democrat Hillary Clinton — are to blame. The Recode Decode podcast this week featured NBC’s Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, and Hallie Jackson talking about the state of American politics. They told host Kara Swisher that Mr. Trump’s campaign tricked the former secretary of state into responding to non-issues while stupid voters took care of the rest on Election Day. “I knew the gaslighting was out there,” Mr. Todd told the panel Dec. 5

Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” Switzerland’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted

An elementary school principal in Nebraska was placed on leave after telling teachers to avoid decorating their classrooms with Christmas-themed ornaments so as not to offend those who don’t celebrate the holiday. The principal at Manchester Elementary School, identified by Fox affiliate KPTM as Jennifer Sinclair, sent out a memo earlier this week with guidelines as to what is considered appropriate for classroom decorations and assignments. Teachers reportedly were told that generic winter-themed items, such as sledding and scarves, and the “Frozen” character Olaf, were acceptable.

Bill and Hillary Clinton have been forced to resort to selling half price tickets for their 13-city tour on Groupon in a desperate bid to put bums on seats. The former president and first lady launched their tour in a Canadian hockey arena last Tuesday to an underwhelming crowd and swaths of empty seats. Ticket prices were plummeting shortly before the event, with the cheapest seats selling on Stubhub for single-digits - $6.55 Canadian Dollars, or less than $5. Now the couple are taking drastic action to avoid another embarrassment

Three whistleblowers have come forward with hundreds of pages of evidence suggesting wrongdoing at the Clinton Foundation, a Republican congressman says. Mark Meadows, head of the House Oversight Subcommittee, said the documents suggest misappropriation of funds and quid-pro-quo promises made to donors during Hillary´s time as secretary of state. Meadows spoke to Fox News about the documents ahead of an investigative hearing on the Clinton Foundation which is due to take place next week. The hearing will review evidence collected by U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tasked with investigating the Foundation by ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It comes after The Hill reported

A YELLOWSTONE volcano eruption could trigger a volcanic winter, which would plunge the globe into freezing conditions and threaten to cut off food supplies, experts have warned. The Yellowstone volcano, located in the US State of Wyoming, has been ranked a “high risk” volcano by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and experts have warned an eruption could one day cause a volcanic winter, threatening to cause chaos across the globe. Dr Christopher Kilburn, a professor at University College London and expert in volcanic hazards, has explained exactly how a volcano can produce what is called a volcanic winter.

Tucker Carlson gave people every reason not to watch his show, as he spun 180 degrees and attacked the president, embraced Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and predicted the Republican Party will die. I am guessing that the Antifa mob that gathered outside his home last month scared the logic out of him. An interview with a Swiss magazine revealed Carlson´s attempt to re-brand himself as Joe Scarborough.
