The US is still a conservative nation.
The American right must stick
to their principles and
keep freedom alive

Telegraph [UK], by Nile Gardiner

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/13/2012 7:03:16 PM

The last four years have been grim for the cause of freedom in America. Under Barack Obama the United States has seen the largest rise in the role of government since the 1930s. As I noted in an earlier piece, “an administration that worshipped bailouts and big government built up staggering levels of debt that threaten to saddle future generations with the profligate spending of their forefathers. Instead of hope, President Obama offered only the heavy fist of government intervention, rising taxes, increasing poverty and welfare dependency, and an increasingly bitter, angry and insular White House.”

We are the ropes, but he is right, we are anything but out. I can´t help thinking some disaster is going to hit the Obama gang up their obnoxious side of the head when they are lest expecting it (maybe the Bengazi-Petraus affair). Don´t know where the punch will come from but their over playing their hand. the last thing we need right now is to sell out our principles and the weak kneed talking heads i.e, Kristol and Krauthammer are the ones that should leave the party not Rush. Winners don´t quit, and losers don´t win.

Oh he is absolutely right. And I do not advocate moving left at all. I only suggest that the party stop putting focus on a couple of social issues and maybe not be so hardline on them. They can addressed once we have the power back. But until we get that power back, public perception will be against us.

Overall, the most important thing for the party is to change the public message about us. We are NOT the party of old racist white guys....that is the biggest lie ever told. And we are also not the party of the rich elite--that is the Democrats.

Yes, people keep saying this. But all the evidence is to the contrary. If there are so many of us conservatives out there, why can´t we get them to the voting booth? The agenda Obama is going to carry out the next 4 years (or more) is going to fundamentally transform this country. In other words, by 2016, we´re not going to recognize the US. I wonder if Niles & the others that continue to believe this will still be here saying the same thing after ObummerCare is fully implemented, Obama appoints 3 more Justices to the SC, and the value of the $$ drops to third world status.

B.O. only won because of "voting irregularities".

I agree with #5. Given the level of arrogance of B.O. and his administration, it´s only a matter of time until a whole bunch of things will ´surprise´ him. Hopefully these problems won´t damage the country.

I choose to stay conservative and fight (politically).

If 20% of the country wants to live in a "worker´s paradise", let them move to Cuba, Venezuela, or wherever.

There are lots of such countries. There is only one America, and she´s worth fighting for.

As Winston Churchill said, "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender."

The government is making us depend on them so they can change their name to "Big Brother" (1984- George Orwell) but our "country" is not at all conservative, while I believe most of the people are... At least the informed ones.

It is not. It has become a nation of greedy lazy lay-abouts who would prefer to wait around for their check and food stamps than get off their asses and provide for themselves. They prefer a Marxist Maoist government to a Republic. For the first time in my life I am embarrassed to be an American, and feel like my service was wasted on a bunch of leftist scum. I remember them spitting at me and my uniform, and now they disgust me. I quit.

I disagree.

If this last election is an indicator of anything, it’s that God is letting America continue down the path of self-destruction.

History repeats itself and if we want to know the future, look to the past and to ancient Israel in particular. When Israel turned from God to idols, they didn’t actually abandon God; they just merged other god’s with the One True God and worshiped them all. One reason for worshiping idols, idols serve man; they allow mankind to live self-indulgent lives without condemnation; so they think.

God is a jealous God. He will not be dethroned nor tolerate sharing the worship and respect He deserves with other gods; not because He is arrogant but because other gods, who let humans do as they please, will let humans destroy themselves. How can man be convinced of that truth? How can Christianity, that demands personal responsibility, compete with a government that has become the enabler of destructive lifestyles, providing entitlements and excuses for people who have a perverted view of freedom? It couldn´t with Israel and it can´t with America.

God will not force Himself on people or nations. Instead, God allows nations to be selfish and when they become selfish they become weak and when they become weak they become vulnerable to the enemy within and without. When the enemy defeats the weak, the enemy takes away the things that made them weak, forcing them to look to God to save them; repeating the cycle.

85% of Americans say they believe in God, but their faith is in the gods of government, leisure, comfort, personal rights and liberties, technology, etc. Even “devout” Christians follow preachers selling a “Prosperity Gospel” that also turns God into a servant of man.

America has abandoned God in the same sense Israel did. America, a once God fearing nation has embraced false gods that are destroying it from within. As America becomes weaker its enemies within gain power and its enemies without wait for the first chance to take away the things that have made it weak; the gods of this world.

There were discrepancies in precincts. There always are with the Democrats. That´s not what got Obama elected. The country is toast because of the entitled masses voting to keep their bread buttered. Obamacare alone codified this culture. Add the coming immigration legislation, the Dodd-Frank regulations and the unknown racial quota regulations coming to every facet of work, government, education, military - do I have to go on? Obama was right on one thing - they won. Disagree if you need to but, don´t shoot the messenger.

I disagree about the US being a conservative nation, if "conservative" is being used in the social sense of the word.

I think the population centers on both coasts and the great lakes are as liberal as they come and they have somehow managed to outvote the rest of the country. That marijuana use, assisted suicide and homosexual "marriage" should come up as referendum questions demonstrates that Hollyweird has won the culture war.

Perhaps, it is time to go Galt and stop enabling the liberal losers continue their descent into wanton, dissolute living and its consequences.

Yes. Obama won because Blacks and Latinos were voting their own dignity, not because there is majority support for any of his opinions. His mandate is to go on having a black skin, and not to deport Latinos. That´s it, really. Been wondering if he´ll keep promise #2 because they´re Catholic. DREAM act beckons in the least-likely-to-be-Catholic segment. Wondering how he will treat the rest.

I don´t know where "Gallup" gets their data. If this was a 2-1 conservative nation, Obama would have lost big time.

The election was not lost because of "voting irregularities".

This is now a liberal country, and my liberal friends can go drown in floods, drown in debt, and otherwise choke on it.

Yo, #13 - absolutamente. Absent some sort of massive move by God, America is finis. Won´t happen tomorrow, but has been set in motion and only He can stop it. I think the thing that bothers me most is our desertion of Israel. We have put ourselves on the side of evil and darkness, and thereby have sealed our fate. :sigh:

Record seismic activity in Oklahoma as
series of earthquakes rocks the state
Reuters, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/5/2014 9:43:16 PM     Post Reply
Earthquakes rattled residents in Oklahoma on Saturday, the latest in a series that have put the state on track for record quake activity this year, which some seismologists say may be tied to oil and gas exploration. One earthquake recorded at 3.8 magnitude by the U.S. Geological Survey rocked houses in several communities around central Oklahoma at 7:42 a.m. local time. Another about two hours earlier in the same part of the state, north of Oklahoma City, was recorded at 2.9 magnitude, USGS said.

George W Bush exhibits his

For a president long criticised for seeing things only in black and white, the exhibition of George W Bush´s art at his presidential library in Dallas comes as something of a revelation. Delicate brushwork has replaced his famed swagger. He presents himself as a wholly different kind of Texas oilman. With each new brushstroke he seems also to be softening his public image. [Snip] His vantage point, of course, is unique: the cockpit of the presidency--or, at least, his recollection of those tumultuous White House years. So there is more to them than canvas, paints and brushes. Another key ingredient

Unhealthy modern lifestyles aren’t the only cause of heart disease, say scientists, who have found clogged arteries in Egyptian mummies. [Snip] Earlier studies had revealed fatty arteries in a large number of Egyptian mummies but critics had dismissed the find as related to their luxurious, fatty diets. ‘Atherosclerosis is supposed to be a disease of modern civilisation,’ Dr Adel Allam, a nuclear cardiologist at Cairo’s Al Azhar University told Alan Mozes of Health Day. ‘It´s supposed to be explained by the fact that we´re eating all the wrong foods, not exercising enough, becoming obese and having diabetes.

The US Treasury has granted plane manufacturer Boeing a licence to export certain spare commercial parts to Iran, a company spokesman says. Boeing has had no public dealings with Tehran since 1979. In a statement, the US company said the licence had been granted for the safety of flight. The step is being seen as part of a temporary agreement to ease sanctions on Tehran that US Secretary of State John Kerry reached with Iran last year. Under the deal brokered in November, Iran agreed to curtail its nuclear activities for six months in exchange for sanctions relief from nations including Britain, China and

An angry crowd attacked an Ebola treatment centre in Guinea on Friday, accusing its staff of bringing the deadly disease to the town, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said, as Mali identified its first suspected cases. More than 90 people have already died in Guinea and Liberia in what the medical charity has warned could turn into an unprecedented epidemic in an impoverished region with poor health services. The outbreak in Guinea is the first time the disease, epidemics of which occur regularly in Central Africa, has appeared in the country. Infected patients initially went undiagnosed for several weeks before tests confirmed Ebola.

At a time of national wage stagnation and economic uncertainty outside the beltway, a Virginia Democratic congressman wants a raise – arguing that a $174,000 salary isn´t enough for a federal legislator to live comfortably in or around Washington, D.C. ´I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,´ Moran told Roll Call. ´I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.´ Congress´ approval rating among voters typically hovers under 20 per cent.

Mouths on Capitol Hill were agape Friday as MailOnline told congressional staffers that President Barack Obama´s recent one-night stay in Brussels cost taxpayers more than $2.9 million--and that´s just for hotel space and rental vehicles.

MailOnline has found two additional requisitions, covering more than $396,000 at a Crowne Plaza hotel and $1.05 million in expenses for ´vehicle rentals.´ The cars were requisitioned from Modern Car, a Brussels company that specializes in luxury limousines.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008. After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has
