What Romney did right
Washington Examiner [DC], by Hugh Hewitt

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/12/2012 5:51:35 AM

With postmortems on the Romney campaign piling up faster than broken promises of relief to Sandy´s victims, there is time before the "big deal" gets cut and the national misery deepens to reflect briefly on what Mitt Romney did right -- and there was much he did right. Romney saved the House of Representatives from reverting to Nancy Pelosi´s rule. A bad enough showing from the GOP nominee, or even an uninspired replay of 1996 or 2008, would have left dozens of House freshmen dangling. National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions runs a great operation,

Apparently the majority of voters are not impressed with those qualities he has. And we´ll all suffer for it.

All well and good, but the problem is the rot, the stench of voters who cannot separate good from evil. They are beyond hope, reason, and posses no critical thinking skills whatsoever - and these morons are not going away.. The Country is going to have to hit bottom, and we have to hope there is enough left to pick up the pieces. Putting candidates mentioned in this article like reorganizing the chairs on the Titanic.....´Talk about casting pearls before swines....

As long as we march headlong into bankruptcy with endless borrowing there will be no reason to do the right thing.

Just love how some blame the republicans for the massive voter fraud.

Whatever Romney did, right or wrong, he was by far the better candidate and would have been a superb president.

I am dumfounded by those of us who are simply raising hands in the air to surrender. White flags are everywhere. Is this really who we are now? We don´t want to keep fighting for our country? Instead, we whine about "secession" and "third party" and "dropping out"? We can see what we could have done differently and more effectively. We can also see where the Dems stole, lied and defrauded. I´m with John Hinderaker and Hugh Hewitt and Krauthammer. I´m with the ones who are planning for the next battle, which we will fight better and stronger and, who knows, we may prevail.

If I could blow a bugle, my contribution would be "El Degüello".

I don´t think the problem is Mr. Romney OR the Republican part. I think the problem is the selfishness of voters who can´t see anything greater than themselves. Obama typifies their mindset: Me... Me... Me! We won the election by dividing America into selfish groups that voted only for their personal issues rather than the greater good of saving the country.

Call me crazy but I don´t think the path to success is for Republican to pander to differing groups. I think the path to success is taking the next for years to educate the electorate to the fact that when the country goes down the drain because we are broke, or our national defense is weak, that EVERYONE will suffer greatly.... including THEM!

Its just like the Republicans to bend over and take it from the cheating democrats.. With out Florida alone Obama barely would´ve scraped by, but with Ohio as well the election would have been ours. They just can´t help losing.... Oblowhard will ruin our country and no one with a voice will stand up for us

The bottom line is that there really is a 47%. They want to be bought off and Fauxbama is just the man for the job. Add a few flaky independents and he´s there. I wonder how they´ll like it when he bankrupts the country and they have to take big hits in their handouts but have no jobs to go to.

The lesson of this election was there are too many people that are uninformed about the issues facing this country. The democrats certainly won the young and dumb vote. The question remains should the republican candidate dedicate more time to fluff shows like the View, Letterman, Colbert or should we take steps to encourage the MSM to serve there original purpose of investigating and informing. I suggest the latter. We as conservatives should boycott the advertisers of at least one of the major netwroks. I would suggest NBC and MSNBC. Until there is some sort of accountability built into the news then we should let our buying habits support the fair and balanced.

What Romney did wrong was to listen to the same people who advised McCain. Those advisers are embedded into the GOP establishment. They will still be around in 2016. The "young guns" will either listen to them again, or the party apparatus will be used to defeat them in the primaries just as what happened to Cain, Perry, Bachmann, Gingrich, et al this year. The party itself is at fault, which is why it must go. What, again, is the definition of "insanity"?

The issue is that who votes does not matter. All that matters is who counts the votes. (paraphrase from Joe Stalin)
The Republican ground game has to be more active Republican participation in EVERY precinct. Who catches vote fraud? Election monitors. So long as the dems control the vote count, there will be fraud.
There was fraud in Ohio and Florida, and indeed within any state which lacks Voter ID.
Take that home and think about it.

There wasn´t enough right things for Romney to do.

The states control the voting process in their individual states. The Repub governors have got to pass some type of protection from voter fraud. If they don´t cave to the msm barrage of voter disenfranchisement claims the conservative nominee stands a chance. Voter fraud in rampant in almost all large cities.
EX: in 13 or 14 districts in Phila they had over 99% voters. You can´t get that high of a % even for handing out food stamps or free iphones..

But #8 - where is the Republican Leadership on Rep Allen West´s fight for a recount? If he was a Dem - yo know Pelosi, etc al would be on TV everyday demanding a recount, etc. Instead - crickets.

The Republican Party - that is why so many of us are dispirited, talk about secession, etc because in many ways, the RNC, party leaders are more the problem then the opposition.

It just does not matter. He lost. He is a good and decent man and would likely have been another Reagan. BUT--big BUT, the free stuff crowd and the blacks who just vote for black and the illegals and Mexican Americans who want illegals here are apparently in the vast majority. It was a rout. AND most of us did not see it coming (or maybe it was just me).

Thinking ahead, okay, so they cheated. We knew they would. What did we do about it? A local level campaign to change the voting apparatus by state to prevent this in the future should be part of a movement forward.
The R Party had four years to prepare for this fraud. They didn´t. Now with a clear understanding of what it means we have four years to get it right and get ready.

There are way too many young people who have been indoctrinated by the left. Too many people in their mid thirties and younger believe in the lie brought to you by the educational establishment. I know ´social studies´ teachers in middle school who think that their job is to help your 13 year olds to form ´identities´ with little regard for actually teaching history. Parallels the Hitler youth and young communists, doncha think?

A while back I kept saying to Romney needs to reach out to Latinos and women voters. This is not pandering. This is reaching out to people with legitimate concerns for the nation. He should have reached out to Paul who did NOTHING to help Romney. His people stayed home, all 11 million of them. It´s only fair that they too should suffer the consequence of an insidious Marxist regime because that is what´s coming if you didn´t get the memo.

On this very web site I saw nothing but disdain for Hispanics and women. Mainly because of abortion and Sandra Fluke. We hate abortion and Fluke. We don´t hate women or Hispanics. But the distinction was seldom if ever made especially at camp Romney. We hate illegal immigration. We don’t hate immigrants. Another distinction not made.

Our PACs refused to go toe to toe with the liars. This faux war on women was NEVER refuted. They let it go by and it worked for the enemies of the USA. If I were Marco Rubio I do stay away from the repubs. They don´t have the stones to go against the insidious evil in this country.

BTW Romney, a good man this nation does not deserve. I always liked him. Imperfect but supported him from the time I realized he was going to get the nomination. Will you all call Rubio a RINO too when he is forced to move to center to get votes.

I would love to see Romney keep up the fight. Obama said you can´t change Washington from the inside. One of the biggest changes this country needs is to it´s education system. You can only dumb down education from Washington and support the teachers´ union. If Romney could overcome the education bureaucracy he would have more effect on this country than two terms as president.

I realize that talking with a few voters whose choice for president differed from mine is not a scientific study. But it may offer some insight into why Mr. Romney (for whom I have learned great respect) did not win.

It boils down to one word: Emotion. Those who voted for Obama did so because of their emotions. Those who chose not to vote for Romney, even though they didn´t like Obama, chose not to vote because of emotions.

These folks did not like Romney--perhaps because he was rich or Mormon or wooden. Basically, they weren´t "feeling" him enough to cast their vote for him.

So the lesson for Republicans is this: Yes, you have to have good policies so as not to abuse the electorate. But you also have to connect with voters emotionally, not just rationally, if you intend to win.

A preacher can give a sinner all the good reasons in the world to "get right with God" (whatever that may mean for a particular faith). But if that preacher doesn´t stir that sinner´s emotions--be a channel through which the sinner´s "heart is strangely warmed" by the prospect of salvation--that sinner won´t likely get right with God.

Romney lost because Romney ran an incompentent election effort. The battle ended on the day the "47%" comment came out - we lost all our Latino volenteers within the week for instance. The R2 "team" sat back and let 0bama lead them by the nose - message wise. I spent the summer listening to un-answered 0bama campain ads. It was over by the end of September if not for the 1st debate, but then Romney didn´t follow-up in D2 or 3. Face it - the ´pubs run incompentent election efforts - we simply do not know how to market the brand.

The nominee was a guy who demonstrated huge problems connecting with republican voters in the states he most needed. East coast liberals should be used only as Vice presidential material to balance a conservative ticket.

Vague on immigration, helpless to criticize the very real threats to individual freedoms housed inside a health care monstrosity he crafted, and the wrong guy to champion the needed regulation on Wall Street. Right guy as treasury secretary, but not the guy to campaign as the champion of Main Street. In retrospect, the worst possible choice to articulate the tried and true conservative message.

Companies who blame their customers when they end up filing for bankruptcy are ignorant laughingstocks. So the voters are to blame are they? Principled conservatives warned in vain about Romney from day one but were villified. It´s real simple. Doofus Romney stood for anything, everything and nothing, simultaneously, and the voters knew it in their bones. So they chose the incompetent devil they knew. Stone cold reality.

Some things to bear in mind as my fellow conservatives tear each other apart:

"When we get piled upon one another in large cities as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe."
-Thomas Jefferson

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
- Thomas Jefferson

(This Nostradamus character had nothing on Thomas Jefferson).

One more quote:

"I´m wondering how long my fellow countrymen will attack each other, and I wonder what the cost will be."

What Republicans need to do is buy one of the networks -- probably NBC by buying millions of shares of Comcast and reshuffling the board. Then they could reconfigure NBC and line it up with Fox.

Then it would be Fox and Fox-lite against CBS & ABC. If the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, a couple of hedge fund guys and a bank president or two pooled their substantial resources, they could make a dent in Conmcast ownership.

Whatever Republican runs, he/she runs against not just an opponent but the network media, NYT, WaPo. With a network hammer, the playing field might be leveled somewhat.

Romney was the best man for the job , but, for months and months , he was beaten up in the primaries
and by the holier than thou
talk show hosts on the right ,
like Ingraham and Limbaugh.
The same thing will happen in 2016 .
A candidate who might actually have national appeal will be eviscerated and damaged by fellow Republicans
before the Democrats
and the media even get to him.
I like Reince Priebus much ,much better than Steele.
But, we need to update and revamp the RNC .
Perhaps Romney is the guy to save the failing enterprise.
We need better voices and faces to represent Republicans.
The women vote killed us thanks to idiots like Mourdock and especially Limbaugh and Akin happily validating the
anti women stereotypes
that Democrats were promoting.
The nation´s demographics are changing and we need to stop repelling common sense women and legal Hispanics .
I personally have no hope for the majority black population
ever seeing the light.
Eight years of Obama will have encouraged anti white racism and dependence to the point where any
thoughts of mass conversion will be hopeless.
If the RNC can bring the far right , libertarians and the liberal Republicans together to war game a
common strategy ( which means every faction compromising and reining in the vitriol )
we might have a chance in 2014 and 2016.
We cannot keep going on like this and losing.

Ditto to posts #18 and #21. Obama and his filthy political machine stole this election through voter fraud. The higher than possible voter turnout, the bogus "recount" in Florida, the voting machines that flipped votes from Romney to Obama in several states are evidence of fraud. I am certain that many many illegals voted in this election. The report of busloads of Somalis voting in Ohio cannot be overlooked.

Not all of the "47%" want to be on public assistance -- some have lost their jobs due to Obama´s failed economy.

Romney´s electors in the Electoral College should refuse to vote until the the States with blatant fraud hold new elections. Furthermore, the Congress should refuse to ratify the Electoral College vote until a valid (as in honest and true) presidential election is held.

Allen West should stand on his desk in Congress and shout his objection to ratifying the vote, and have wheel barrows of evidence rolled in before the Congress.

Alan West went to court and has been granted a PARTIAL recount. He is now trying for a FULL recount. Because West had a two year term he had to run this year.
I don´t know how they managed it but they redistricted him. My son used to be in his district. Then, in his new district they manufactured so many votes that they exceeded the number of voters in the district.

The Democrats say if he was a gentleman he would concede.

I was not sure at first, but I am now, that this election was stolen, particularly in the battleground states. I think they tried in North Carolina but didn´t quite manufacture enough.

Here is how we can win not only the next election but all elections in the future. The Repbuclians need to go hire Stephanie Cutter and people like her. Listen she doesn´t care who is in the White House she is a "Hired Gun" and will work for the highest bidder. Let her run the campaign from within and the party can keep the principles they have always had. That is the way you fight fire with fire.

Please excuse the second post but I just have to add that because Santorum and Gingrich fought him so hard Romney had no money left to answer Obama´s attacks on Bain and his character for quite a long time.

And why were Santorum and Gingrich hanging on when anyone with a pencil and a piece of paper could see that because there were states they were not on the ballot in and states where they were on the ballot in some counties and not others that there was not a hope in the world that they could get the nomination. We all should have known it and they should have known that it was an exercise in futility and they were just messing it up for our Party.

And here´s what Romney did wrong: He lost. So, after a year of inevitability and invincibility talk from Mitt´s most ardent supporters, it turns out the electorate was too stupid to elect him. Or conservatives were too choosy. Or evangelicals were too bigoted. Or the TEA Party was too loud. Or whatever alibi the Romney operatives are pushing these days to explain their failure. Here´s the deal: From day one of the primaries, Team Romney ran exactly the campaign they wanted, and they lost to the worst president in U.S. history. It turns out the Romney Campaign was as arrogantly clueless and politically tone deaf as some of us feared. I respect Romney as a man and as a businessman, so here´s the bottom line: Mitt was hired to do a job, he hired his team, and they didn´t get it done. I feel sorry for Mitt Romney, but I feel worse for my country.

I give President Romney credit for a hard fought race...

WE had to win -- BIG -- in order for the "fraud" element of the demorat machine to be defeated....

Soooooo -- my fellow Americans -- it wasn´t the right time....

Younger Americans have to suffer some more before their eyes are opened....

Forget Washington DC -- it´s beyond repair....WE must go local and take one step at a time. Work with your republicans locally to shore/up your states....

When the goooooberment mandated school busing 35 years ago here in Chicago -- the public schools were emptied. Unfortunately the kids left behind -- were totally left behind. I had to take care of "mine" so I fled. The same thing will happen with obamacare. Some lawyer will figure out an "opt out". Just be patient....

#21 has stated the only hope

It is up to Republican governors to stamp out the voter fraud in their states. The problem being that The Obamanation of Desolation can now pack the Supreme court with union thugs and ex-ACORN employees that might thwart that.

The Republicans did not lose this election it was stolen from them. Does anyone, ANYONE really think that fewer people voted in this election than the last one?

Historically Demonrats added votes to Demonratic totals This time I think the simply found a way to delete votes from heavily Republican areas. This needs to be proved as even Union thugs, welfare Queens and dope dealers can see how having a small group of people determine the election before hand is dangerous.

I truly believe this presidential election was stolen,way before we went to the polls. The democrats and Obama were far too placid. They knew what was afoot. Millions of manufactured votes before the election even took place. Will the mainstream media investigate? God forbid. The polls were right, when you don´t factor in massive fraud. I´m glad Alan West is still fighting. His election was stolen too. At least it´s exposing more and more impossible scenarios. God bless him!

There is no way Romney got fewer votes than McCain did in ´08. I said on this very forum I believed the phoney polls showing how close the race was served only to mask the fraud when the Won was re-elected. This is beyond sad. I have no words to describe the anger and disappointment I´m feeling.

What Romney did right: he didn´t fight dirty like Obama did.
He did some things wrong, too, like not go on talk shows to show himself more human, and not fighting harder against misinformation by the media & Obama´s team. He didn´t´ explain his platform well enough. He didn´t take ground on Benghazi. He didn´t assure Medicare recipients & people on unemployment that he would continue helping them, and that he would find a way to help the working poor get medical coverage.

I know the media fought it, but we have to know that & buy air time, go on shows, etc., to overcome it.

But there´s much more blame to go around. The GOP should never have made us take a moderate YET AGAIN as our candidate. The media should be sued for FCC violations after their blatantly obvious bias all year. Dem voter fraud is also rampant & hasn´t been addressed.

In the end, I think swing voters who are hurting financially just couldn´t get the nerve to go 4 more years without govt help -- not knowing Romney would have helped them hang on. So, they marked the Obama ballot.

All of the above contributed to this loss.

The Saga of Bundy Ranch --Federal Power, Rule
of Law and Averting Potential Bloodshed
Breitbart Big Government, by Logan Churchwell & Brandon Darby    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/14/2014 9:32:52 AM     Post Reply
BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

Hillary Clinton all but erased

A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012. Over the past 18 months, there have been at least seven public congressional hearings and three fact-finding reports on the terrorist attack. If not invisible, Mrs. Clinton is certainly portrayed as being only in the background during Benghazi, unaware of key events. In the early post-Benghazi days on Capitol Hill, Republicans tried to pry “what did she know and when did she know

LUDLOW, Mass. — Eric Lesser was shaking hands with diners in a Portuguese restaurant last week when he spotted the owner of Manny’s TV & Appliances. “Oh, I’ve got to get a picture,” Mr. Lesser eagerly said, draping his arm over Manny Rovithis, whose low-budget commercials have run for decades in Western Massachusetts. Mr. Lesser’s giddiness about meeting the local celebrity had not faded when he sat down for lunch. “Awesome,” he said. Although Mr. Lesser spent much of the last six years in the company of President Obama and Washington hotshots, now, as an earnest, hug-prone 29-year-old candidate for the Massachusetts

Scot Gillies has a good idea of the kind of horse people who will fit in at Gryffindor Farm, the small barn he helps manage in Lexington, Ky. So his advertisements for new boarders spell it out in detail: Owners must be "laid-back," "happy" and above all, "drama-free." Mr. Gillies, a marketing consultant by day and a horse owner himself, says that during his 14 years in the equestrian world, "I´ve seen the full range of drama that is associated with horse people." A few categories of problematic individuals reign: There are overprotective owners who insist their animals be treated like

Hate group to picket Kansas City funerals

WASHINGTON – The Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist organization known for its anti-gay activism, announced that it will picket the funerals of the three people killed in Sunday afternoon’s shooting attacks at two Kansas City Jewish sites. The church, which has famously picketed funerals of US military personnel and has protested against the American Jewish community, sent out a tweet shortly after the shooting saying, “Thank God for shootings at Overland Park KS jewish centers! Westboro to picket funerals. God did not passover.” The Topeka, Kansas-based group is not affiliated with any Baptist organization, and has a long history of anti-Semitic

A Secret Fight over Russia
in the Obama Administration
Weekly Standard, by William Kristol    Original Article

The Obama administration has scheduled a deputies committee meeting this week—tentatively set for Tuesday—to resolve a bitter inter-agency dispute over a request from Russia with respect to the Open Skies program. Informed sources believe the White House is likely to side with the State Department, which wants to accommodate Russia, over the objections of the Obama administration´s Defense Department and intelligence agencies. The Open Skies treaty allows the United States and Russia to fly over each other´s territory with planes loaded with certain agreed-upon sensor packages, in order to ensure compliance with arms control agreements and to provide assurance against

It’s not spying, it’s policing. Good news for New Yorkers, who live, work and play in what remains the world’s top terror target: New profiling rules the Justice Department is drafting will reportedly let the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue the critical work of using nationality to map neighborhoods, recruit informants and look for foreign agents. In other words, they’ll let the often-cautious FBI engage in intelligent and legitimate policing to prevent attacks against innocent Americans. As reported by The New York Times, the feds’ decision, arrived at after years of exhaustive legal and other reviews, is a tacit endorsement of nearly identical

Chuckie Hagel´s New Horse

Judging by the horse he gave Defense Secretary Chuckie Hagel a couple of days ago, Mongolian Defense Minister Dashdemberel must be a very diligent student of the defense budget that Congress is now trying to craft. The horse, of course, is a gelding. When the president announced his proposed budget and Hagel went to Congress to state the party line, I wrote that several indispensable weapon systems — the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the A-10 Warthog attack aircraft, and half of the Navy’s 22 cruisers among them — would be retired. Under the president’s plan, military pay raises would be capped at

White House senior adviser John Podesta is running against the clock. Time is winding on Podesta’s objective, which is to make sure President Obama put points on the board in the final three years of his second term through either legislation or executive action. With Obama and the White House flailing in late 2013, Podesta returned to the West Wing in January as part of an Obama reboot. A little more than three months later, the former chief of staff for President Clinton gets good marks from Democrats and fellow West Wingers for helping to improve the White House’s strategy and communications.

Dartmouth College students recently staged an overnight sit-in the office of their president Philip Hanlon. They had over seventy demands. Apparently, they grew out of their alleged suffering at the hands of “racist, classist, sexist, heterosexist, trans-homophobic, xenophobic, and ablest structures.” Translating into English, the students elaborated, “Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack” — suggesting conditions similar to the teen-aged Marines who stormed Fallujah in November 2004, or perhaps the iron-workers who tip-toe on girders 1,000 feet above Manhattan, or an acquaintance of mine whose work clothes reveal that he pumps out quite messy rural

The next ObamaCare disasters

On Friday the president used the long-awaited resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to again claim victory for his namesake health law. “She got it fixed, got the job done,” Obama said. Right. Sorry, there is plenty of more bad news ahead. It’s not called SebeliusCare, and she wasn’t to blame for most of its problems. The horrors were mostly baked into the law, with some made worse by the president’s dishonest hard sell to get unsuspecting Americans to sign up. Obama claimed Friday that 7.5 million people have enrolled in exchange coverage. In fact, perhaps 20 percent haven’t

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- The man accused of killing three people in attacks at a Jewish community center and Jewish retirement complex near Kansas City is a well-known white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader who was once the subject of a nationwide manhunt. Frazier Glenn Cross, of Aurora, Mo., was booked into Johnson County jail on a preliminary charge of first-degree murder after the attacks Sunday in Overland Park.

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
