Sen. Jim DeMint to Head
Heritage Foundation

Wall Street Journal, by Daniel Henninger

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/6/2012 10:45:46 AM

South Carolina U.S. Senator Jim DeMint will replace Ed Feulner as president of the Heritage Foundation. Mr. DeMint will leave his post as South Carolina´s junior senator in early January to take control of the Washington think tank, which has an annual budget of about $80 million. Sen. DeMint´s departure means that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, a Republican, will name a successor, who will have to run in a special election in 2014. In that year, both Mr. DeMint´s replacement and Sen. Lindsey Graham will be running for reelection in South Carolina.

Comments:
That a huge loss this is for the Senate. He was one of the few clarion voices for conservatives.

I know him well. I´m sad he is leaving the Senate--and irritated with him for not finishing his term!

Lots of possible interpretations...Senate inertia...minority status...he´s also been mentioned as a possible GOP nominee in 2016.

While I hate to see him leave, I´m sure the people of SC will be smart enough to elect someone who shares his values. Besides, after Boehner´s cave in, I believe the Republican party is finished and we need a new Conservative party to replace it. In his role in the Heritage Foundation, he is in a perfect position to help accomplish that.

In spite of the loss, I love to see good, strong people move up. This is a promotion for Senator DeMint and he deserves after laboring long and hard under the Establishment Republicans´ collective thumb.

Congratulations, Senator. May you live long and prosper as a strong voice for Conservatives throughout the country!

#3 is right on the upside, and I´m sure Sen. DeMint is tired of fighting both a losing battle against his party leadership and Harry Reid.

Senator DeMint is one of the few conserative warriors in DC and I´m sad to see him go. The Heritage Foundation couldn´t have done any better. I don´t blame him for leaving. If I had to deal with not only the crumb Harry Reid but jokers like his fellow SC senator Graham and loser McCain I´d bail too. I´m sure that Gov Haley will apoint someone good to fill in until the next election to balance out the goober.

As of this moment, Mick Mulvaney and Henry McMaster are the two frontrunners to replace DeMint.

Tim Scott is said not to want it; he´d rather be governor (after Haley) of South Carolina.

Not Henry, please. He is establishment. Mick Mulvaney would be a better choice, or Trey Gowdy, or Jeff Duncan. Someone in a House district where there is a good chance of another conservative being elected or appointed. A good replacement for a House member who might be appointed would be Bill Connor, who ran for Lt Gov here.

#18, I heard DeMint´s remark while the Republican primaries were underway. While I wasn´t particularly happy with the slate of candidates, I thought that ceding the election to Obama for another 4 years in the interest of ´principles´ was asking way too much. In the end, Romeny was probably the most capable candidate of the bunch. The election was not a blow-out for Obama, showing that Romeny did have a wide appeal...I just wish he had more fire in his belly and stood up unapologeticaly for some of the stuff the Dems put around his neck... (like his 47% comment). But if one follow´s DeMint´s logic, then you are doomed to be irrelevant, like an annoying little dog -- always nipping at the heels of the ruling party but having no influence on the outcome.

Sen DeMint is wasted in the Senate - this looks to be a good move for him - moving to an organization where his abilities and philosophy will matterand make a difference. I like The Heritage Party - good name - Trey Gowdy is a force to be reckoned with - he has spoken out clearly and forcefully on issues that concern us greatly.I do not the other gentlemen mentioned - S.Carolina is indeed fortunate.

no, I read his attitude as "we´ll lose, but at least we´ll be pure.´ Reagan stood up for his principles to be sure, but he also didn´t take positions that were sure losers. Look at how the GOP shot itself in its feet consistently since the primaries: Romeny´s remark about self-deportation (what was he thinking?!) Akins and the Indiana Idiot´s remarks on rape and abortion. (Were they trying to lose?). Immigration is an important issue, but the GOP this time around not only lost the Hispanics big time, but the Asian vote too. Asians are among the most entreprenurial and among those iwth th emost to lose under Obama, and they deserted the GOP anyway. You can be conservative on finances and defense and still take positions that recognize the realities of the current immigration situation (you´re not deporting 12 million people), and abortion -- it´s settled law. Stop banging your head against the wall and encouraging the totally bogus ´war on women´ cry of the Dems. If Repubs don´t recognize this, they´ll never win another election.

Obama is such an undeserving, inadequate, pretending, evil little twit, and I don´t want anyone that represents me to give an ounce to him.

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center, included

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

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
