Earth to GOP: Get a Grip
Wall Street Journal, by Bret Stephens

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/13/2012 5:33:05 AM

In January I was rebuked by some readers for predicting that the GOP would lose, and for saying it deserved to lose, too. (Snip)Which reminds me: Can we, as the GOP base, demand an IQ exam as well as a test of basic knowledge from our congressional and presidential candidates? This is not a flippant suggestion: There were at least five Senate seats in this election cycle that might have been occupied by a Republican come January had not the invincible stupidity of the candidate stood in the way.

"Invincible stupidity"? I think Mr. Stephens needs an editor ... with a red pencil.

And not only an editor, but a self-check on his own emotions would be in order for Mr. Stephens. In my experience, people who use the phrase "get a grip" are themselves guilty of losing self-discipline.

Last: To defend innocent human life, verbally, is not "extreme." Such a defense might be unwisely enunciated, in front of certain hostile audiences. But to enunciate such a defense is neither "extremism" nor evidence of a low IQ.

More ´relativist´ chatter, devoid of any moral absolutes. His compromise succumbs for the sake of any political savior.

´Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.´ A morally decadent society is no victory for anyone but Satan.

Okay! ´Invincible stupidity´ might be a liittle over the top. But he is right. We might have owned both houses of congress were it not for our candidate´s penchant to engage in foolishness. ´Legitimate rape´ anyone? Disciplined and pre-planned talking points with training how to handle a hostile press and ´gotcha´ avoidance - these are how we can win elections by showing that we not only have the better ideas but are reasonable people.

Is anyone else getting tired of being told to ´sit down, and shut up´ by purported conservatives?

The reason the left wins is that it embraces every aspect of it´s party with unabashed glee- it´s called the big tent. However, the same ´conservatives´ who rail about the GOP tent not being big enough, are the first to tell it´s base to sit down and shut up.

Maybe that´s why our side lost last week. More than 13 million Americans (not just conservatives) stayed home and didn´t vote at all.

Well, when I heard statements that some of our candidates came out with, I fail to see how they expected to be elected. Stupidity or just plain ignorance, I wonder how some of them ever got nominated. The old saw, it´s better to remain silent and be thought ignorant than to open one´s mouth and remove all doubt.

I liked this article. Republicans have to connect better, particularly with the family-oriented Hispanics. Extraordinary Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico started out as a Dem, but came to realize she was a Republican. There are millions more like her.

The only ´invincible stupidity´ that had anything to do with this election lies with the voting public. There should be a basic test on the front page of every ballot. When the ballot is placed in the counter the test is graded, fail and the ballot is destroyed, pass and your choices are counted. No one ever finds out if they passed or failed, but everyone believes they´ve done their civic duty. It should take about three or four election cycles and all of the idiots in DC will be gone for good. Couple this plan with strict voter ID laws and dunking thumbs in ink and it would take even less time to clean up the mess.

Somebody had better run a "boot camp" for GOP Candidates, including Tea Party folks.

First seminar, required for all, is how to deal with the RAT infested media whores.

Since Georgie Porgie´s question out of the blue about limiting contraception and firing the opening salvo on a Democrat-made-up "war on women" issue, the minions in the media who will still continue to drive voters to the Democrats tax-and-spend-and-run-your-life programs will come up with "gotcha" questions.

One they liked this time was to try and frame the Republican as "pro-rape." Akin and Mourdock fell for the bait.

We need to teach candidates to go ahead and point out their "gotcha" questions and just say, "Rape is a crime. I´m against it."

And when they come back, just say "Asked and answered," or "Why aren´t you asking your Democrat friends hard questions?"

Don´t fall into their trap.

Or, do like Obama, and only take questions from friendly reporters. Of course, for a Republican that pretty well limits you to Rush, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and a few others.

According to Mr. Middle of the Road, opposing abortion in cases of rape and incest, to say nothing of the life of the mother is abortion extremism and the GOP needs to go mushy. I´m sick of people like him.

A fetus is either life or it isn´t life. If you believe the fetus is life, then if doesn´t matter why a woman is pregnant, life is life and it should be illegal to end that life. Could the candidate in IN made this point more delicately, yes but should he compromise is beliefs because taking a stand is "extremism", heck no!

There is no difference between the old buffoon Richard Luger and the dem that replaced him. Mourdock would have won if he´d answered the gotcha question more intelligently, but Indiana shouldn´t be so stupid to think a senator has any say in the matter anyway.

I´m all for shaking up the GOP and throwing the RINOs out - for they do us no favors by working with the enemy.

The incredible stupidity of some of our candidates is reflected in the comments of some of our posters. Throw the RINOs out. My God who is going to define them and what criteria will you use. And with whom will we replace them? As I´ve posted for years- you win elections by getting the most votes, not by telling voters that you dont want them.

I am amazed and appalled that people still support Akin and Mourdock simply because they believe the right things. Sheesh people, can´t we find candidates who believe the right things but are not blithering idiots? Ability, intelligence and an understanding of the battlefield are important. Akin, nor Mourdock, nor Sharron Angle, had any of those things. Yes, they believe the right things, but so have all of my kids when they were 10. It doesn´t mean they were capable of running for office.

#9 hits a major failing of Republican politicians. I would add that a vital addition to the much needed ´boot´ camp would be a long seminar on working to secure the votes. Incredible that it doesn´t seem to matter if Republicans hold the reins of power or not, they do NOTHING about the military being denied the vote, black churches aiding fraud and urban polling places simply ejecting poll watchers.

I´d love to see a gorilla effort that would tour college campuses or nearby college campuses. It could be a kind of entertainment/debate/current events effort that would educate while challenging the ´awesome´ stupidity of some youngsters. You know the crowd that thinks Applebees is cutting back employees because they were upset Mitt lost instead of fundamental business numbers.

Mr. Stephens urges us to ignore what goes on in other people´s bedrooms. It´s not our business, says he. Fine and dandy, but why then do these sexual athletes insist we pay for their abortions, AIDS treatments, venereal diseases and contraceptives? When they thrust their hands into our pockets to pay for the consequences of their private fun, they´re making it our business.

I agree with Stephens that Mitt Romney was a technocrat who was basically indistinguishable from a Democrat. So Stephens´s solution is apparently for the GOP to fold and become a microscopically less statist wing of the Democrat Party?

Unfortunately the Stupid Party almost always falls for the bait. Supporting a liberal Democrat amnesty for the 12-20 million illegal aliens here now, and putting them on a path to citizenship so that the vast majority of them can someday become liberal Democrat voters is not going to help the Stupid Party win future national elections.

Do you really think that the highly partisan liberal Democrats would be pushing for such an amnesty if they did not know that the vast majority of those who would be legalized aliens would become liberal Democrat voters, and definitely would not have an epifinany and vote for conservative Republicans as some in the Stupid Party are dreaming up?

The fact of the matter is the liberal Democrats will always be able to out bid the Stupid Party for the votes of poor people, and most illegal aliens and their families are poor people. Most illegal aliens today have to work hard for low wages in order to keep a job in the USA. Once legalized they will not longer have to do that, and will be able to qualify for and enjoy the US government run safety net of benefits and services. They will not vote for the Stupid Party that runs on minimizing the level of those benefits and services that the legalized aliens expect to receive especially with the liberal Democrats calling for increases in government benefits and services.

Militarism and social issues are the two anchors around the neck of the GOP. The party has been branded, and no amount of accommodation will change the perceptions of voters. This election was about race. The Democrats have assembled a coalition of anti-white-male haters. The media supports them. Nothing can be done about it. Personally, I am not interested in a government that traffics in social issues, from the left or the right. Lincoln knew how to get elected by not talking about slavery. Today´s GOP is politically brain dead. Politics is not Sunday School. Sometimes you have to hold hands with the devil to get to the other side of the bridge.

Contemptible John Kerry
blames Israel for his own mess
New York Post, by John Podhoretz    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/10/2014 6:03:12 AM     Post Reply
John Kerry, our secretary of state, is very angry with Israel. “Poof,” he said on Tuesday — describing how Israel destroyed his “peace process” the other week. Just like that. The first thing to say is that if a peace process can go “poof,” it can’t have been much of a peace process. Any serious discussion in which two parties are motivated to reach a negotiated arrangement wouldn’t be susceptible to going up in smoke all at once. That would indicate it never had any form or substance to begin with. And how on earth was it Israel who made

On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Obamacare is on the rise and on a roll again, as its backers will tell you, having passed the 7 million mark in enrolling the uninsured (although it´s really 5.9 million or so, and most of those enrolled had been insured already), but it´s back on its feet.

The Obama administration has won an award named after America’s third president, Thomas Jefferson. That’s the “good” news. The bad news? The award is the “Jefferson Muzzle,” which the administration won for spying on the news media and limiting journalists’ access to Obama. The “coveted” awards announced Wednesday by the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression are presented to people and institutions that engage in the most egregious affronts to the First Amendment. (No word on whether Team Obama was a unanimous winner.) As reported by AP, the awards are announced each year on or near the

Congress´s investigation into IRS political targeting accelerated Wednesday, with a referral for the criminal prosecution of a former Treasury official and new evidence to back it up. In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp recommends the Justice Department proceed on three probable criminal actions taken by former director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. The letter, which was endorsed in a party-line Ways and Means vote Wednesday morning, discloses new evidence suggesting that Ms. Lerner used her position to single out conservative groups for scrutiny not applied to left-leaning groups. Investigators also charge that

Some people can’t take “no” for an answer. Often that’s an admirable quality. But when you are a witness at the center of a congressional investigation, and the “no” reflects the House Oversight Committee’s decision not to accept your refusal to testify, then it’s not quite so simple. And that is where Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official at the center of the IRS scandal, now finds herself. Lerner’s case is by now well known. From 2006 to 2013, she was the IRS’s Director of Exempt Organizations, vested with power to decide which nonprofit organizations receive tax-exempt status, which

His action? Signing an executive order barring federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay and a memo seeking statistics on contractor salaries. If the photo-friendly ceremony in the East Room was not exactly the stuff of Mount Rushmore, it did reflect a broader question about the state of the presidency a half-century after Lyndon B.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.
