First in a Series: RNC ´Autopsy´
Looks Like an Inside Job

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Michael Patrick Leahy

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/12/2012 12:59:13 PM

On Monday, Republican National Committee Chairman Priebus announced that a five person team of insiders will chair the committee responsible for his much promised "autopsy" of the failed 2012 Republican campaign. Priebus had promised that the "autopsy" would be conducted by outsiders, but a look at the backgrounds of the team members confirms what conservative and grassroots critics have suspected would be the case: it´s an inside job. Politico reported the details:

So in short a group of establishment Republicans are going to perform this "autopsy" and nothing will change. We are doomed to repeat the same mistakes. This is very discouraging.

Priebus flat out LIED on National Radio when he told Mark Levin that Michele Bachmann WOULD receive RNC $$$ for her campaign IF it looked like a tight race. She was in the fight of her life and received nothing.
I hate liars whatever party they claim to represent.

The GOP reeks of corruption every bit as badly as the dems. I was soundly thrashed for saying this during the primaries. We´re not hearing as much from their apologists lately.

The tea party should denounce this before it even happens. It´s time for another gathering on Capitol Hill...actually, past time.

Well, doesn´t this just seal it for most of us?

I, for one, am outta there. I have absolutely, less-than-no confidence left in the RNC, their personnel, their executives, their ´committees´ - this one or any other - their philosophy, their goals, their sincerity, their faithfulness to our Constitution, or anything else I may have left out in my current little fit of pique.

I have tired to the maximum of banging my head against the wall called the RNC or GOP, or whatever, and I can no longer afford the medication for the headaches and fatigue.

Mr. Priebus: Do what you will. Mismanage at your leisure. It no longer concerns or involves me.

The republicrats are at it again and the republic is now lost. They forced a terribly flawed candidate into the presidential race and here we are. There isn´t time to form up a new party and the predominance of illegals and Obamaphones ensure that the republic cannot recover. Welcome to the USSA.

And yet, so many here will continue right on blaming those who are merely pointing out the obvious. Some people will not shake themselves from the lost dream. It is high time to leave the Republican Party to their inside machinations. They have committed political suicide in their attempt to maintain power and influence. History will deal with them as with the Whigs. Whigs, you say?

Proof the RNC has adopted the Democrat playbook. Do lots of investigations, have good intentions, and change nothing.

If we can´t get rid of Boehner and Priebus, the Republican party is doomed to failure.

Is it time for the ´Constitutionalists Party´, yet?

#10 more women are pro-life than pro-death and that´s a fact. 50 million people didn´t get a chance to vote in this election for either candidate, 50 million people didn´t get a chance to pick which party they want to belong to, 50 million people didn´t have the chance to be in the 1%, the 47% or the 99%, 50 million people didn´t get a chance to be a liberal or a conservative. 50 million people didn´t get a chance to pay higher gas prices or reap the profits off it, 50 million people didn´t get a chance to fight for us in the military or protest the wars. Without life there are NO other rights, 50 million people were slaughtered in this nation since Roe vs Wade. This election wasn´t lost because of abortion it was lost because Romney promised jobs to people that didn´t want to work, just reap the labors of others.

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived.

During Wednesday’s White House press briefing, ABC News’ Chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl probed Press Sec. Jay Carney over the progress of President Barack Obama’s policy aimed at addressing the threat posed by the Syrian civil war. Karl pointedly asked Carney whether it was time to acknowledge that Obama’s Syria policy has been an “absolute failure.” “Isn’t it time to acknowledge that, when it comes to easing the humanitarian crisis in Syria, that the president’s policy has been an absolute failure?” Karl asked. “I mean, you had the Director of National Intelligence tell Congress that the situation on the ground

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) was just one of 199 Republicans who voted against raising the debt ceiling yesterday, in open defiance of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). But when Gohmert appeared on Fox Business Network with Lou Dobbs Tuesday night, he received what seemed like 100% of the blame for what the host called pure “political theater” by the ultra-conservative wing of the GOP. “How in the world do you expect the Republican Party to not find itself in the same strategic blind and bind that it was in last year when you guys shut down the federal government?” Dobbs demanded

That’s not an exaggerated headline at all: according to Manhattan court records, an angry Brazilian soap opera actress named Adriana Ferreyr literally punched her ex-boyfriend George Soros in the head during a deposition, and hit at least three other people.

The debt of the U.S. government has increased by $2.678 trillion in the 2.5 years since House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) completed his first deal to put legislation increasing the debt limit through a Republican-controlled House of Representatives. On Aug. 2, 2011, President Barack Obama signed legislation, approved by the Boehner-led House, permitting the Treasury to increase the debt by $900 billion. Since then, the debt limit has been repeatedly suspended by legislation that needed to pass through the Republican-controlled House. Yesterday, the House once again passed legislation to suspend the debt limit—this time through March 15, 2015, which is after November’s

Rep.

The Illinois Democrat was asked if the president should stop America’s deportation policy. “I think the president should continue to expand on his executive authority to stop the deportations of certain groups of immigrants in this country,” Gutierrez said. “I think there are American citizen children, millions of them, millions of American citizen children, which

Kirsten Powers has more of an excuse to defend Obamacare than Ron Fournier. The latter is supposedly a journalist. Powers worked for Hillary Clinton and is a career Democrat operative. Up to now, attacking Obamacare would have been a career-limiting move — especially with Hillary poised to run for a sequel to the squalor that was the 1990s Clinton White House. But now that Hillary’s gearing up for a presidential run, she will necessarily have to distance herself from Obama and his policies. Anyone who wants to work for Hillary must do likewise.

On Tuesday, the Senate Conservatives Fund called for the ouster of House Speaker John Boehner. Now the SCF, originally founded by Sen. Jim DeMint and run by a close DeMint associate, has launched the harshest attack yet on its No. 1 target, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. In a new ad based in part on supposition, misleading reporting, questionable assertions and a single (erroneously cited) poll, the SCF likens McConnell´s leadership of the Senate to Internal Revenue Service harassment of conservatives. "Bullying. Threats. Intimidation," the ad begins. "The IRS? No. Try Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican Leader. That´s right. Mitch McConnell

The SEIU leader who fasted for 22 days last year in Washington to pressure Congress to pass amnesty sat at the head table with President Barack Obama at the State Dinner for French President François Hollande Tuesday. It was feast, not famine, for Eliseo Medina, who sat together at the head table with Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Hollande, and even comedian Stephen Colbert, according to pool reports. The Obamas expressed their support repeatedly last year for the "Fast For Families" advocates, and President Obama even visited the fasters after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Sen. Ted Cruz and the GOP rank and file ultimately backed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Whip John Cornyn into a corner on the debt ceiling increase. The leaders had wanted to allow the toxic measure to pass with just 51 votes so all 45 Republicans could vote against it. But Cruz, the Texas tea party freshman, demanded approval by a 60-vote threshold. So McConnell and Cornyn tried to persuade more than five Republicans in safe seats to support the plan, but they were met with stiff resistance. No Republican wanted to be vote No. 60 on a

Lawyers are pitching state attorneys general in 16 states with a radical idea: make the food industry pay for soaring obesity-related health care costs. It’s a move straight from the playbook of the Big Tobacco takedown of the 1990s, which ended in a $246 billion settlement with 46 states, a ban on cigarette marketing to young people and the Food and Drug Administration stepping in to regulate. There are plenty of naysayers, just as there were in 1994 when Mike Moore, Mississippi’s attorney general, famously suggested suing the tobacco industry.

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015.

Jetting off to five star resorts with a large entourage has too much dissonance with the rhetoric denouncing inequality currently in favor with the left.
