Thanks National Review, For
Having Joe Scarborough Explain
What´s Wrong With Conservatives

Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by Larry O´Connor

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/27/2013 4:41:14 PM

This weekend National Review Institute hosted a Summit in Washington DC titled "The Future of Conservatism." The fact that National Review felt the need to call on Joe Scarborough to sum up the "Trouble with Conservatism" is Exhibit A for what is wrong with these navel-gazing enterprises. "I think the debate has been stifled. It has been stifled because we have created this conservative groupthink over 30 years that has become more and more narrow. A conservative groupthink that would allow all of our primary presidential candidates being asked if they would

What on earth is wrong with National Review?? He is the last person who should ever give the GOP advice. If so, we are doomed for failure forever. Good. Grief. No wonder we are in such trouble.

I have no problem hearing Scarborough´s views. As conservatives consider what to do, moving forward, all views should be heard. Though I probably would disagree with them, I have no problem hearing from David Frum, Kathleen Parker or David Brooks, either.

The people at the National Review have a vested interest in making sure the money continues to flow to the Republican Establishment of which they serve.

Anyone not threatening the cash cow and willing to
attack anyone who points out the farce the party has become is the hero of the day.

We attended NRI summit this weekend in DC and felt that William Bennett gave the best advice in telling Republicans to take the offense in fighting Obama´s agenda, that defense was not enough. He told the story of a football coach who advised his players that the only time they should be looking down is if they were peeing into their shoes. If Mr. Bennett were a little younger and so inclined, we should nominate him in 2016.

The night owl with Mark Steyn, Jonah Goldbert and Rob Long was another highlight of the weekend and included toasts to Andrew Breitbart and William F. Buckley.

There were times when I scratched my head and wondered why a woman pundit was discussing a 47 year old woman´s concerns about birth control and abortion, or why illegals were being discussed as a focus of voters´ rights.

The Flag I Used to Love

There is a flag I used to love,
Its name is called Old Glory,
It used to stand for liberty,
But now’s a different story.

Today it stands for federal pow’r,
For force, oppression, pain,
It used to cause my heart to sing,
But now’s the source of shame.

Today it’s freedom’s enemy,
A symbol of oppression,
It used to stand for liberty,
But now the tyrant’s aggression.

The "big tent" has inflicted us with all sorts of communicable diseases that have weekened the message and creed of conservatism.

Joe´s explanation would lead us to the quickening of death of our few remaining values.

I listen to the moderate Republicans and the left wing Democrats so I can know how to refute them. It is hard to do and many times I can´t stand it and have to turn the channel.[stomach turns] I also can´t stand the extreme right wing Republicans who don´t know what they are talking about, but just blab an oft repeated phrase.
I remember how Reagan was called a ´right wing extremist´ by the MSM and the Republican hierachy. He also was called a "liberal" by actual right wingers. [he used to be a Democrat they said and that stained him for life with them, Idiots] Why is the world so full of idiots who can´t think for themselves, and who don´t care about ´truth´?

He´s been dining out on his I´m -a -conservative -but schtick for a while. Considering the parade of leftists he hosts weekly, all spouting identical points of view, its absolutely ridiculous for him to accuse the conservative circular firing squad of groupthink. I´m not sure he even knows what it means or that he´s a particularly bright fellow.

the same people who thought Reagan a buffoon are the same people who look down upon Palin and the Tea Party.

arrogance is no a virtue.

keep voting for whomever the republican party nominates. i am sure it will turn out better the next time.

Ex-CIA boss Morell gives unorthodox
reasons for omitting key Benghazi details
Fox News, by Catherine Herridge    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/3/2014 10:03:11 PM     Post Reply
In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

SAN DIEGO – Hillary Clinton cancelled her upcoming visit to San Diego in the midst of a planned protest. Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11. She was originally going to deliver the speech in person, but will now be seen by satellite. The three day event will be being held at the San Diego Convention Center with 700 people expected to attend.

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

18 Democrats join GOP to restore
40-hour work week under Obamacare
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/3/2014 9:15:36 PM     Post Reply
Facing withering pressure to stick with the president and block any GOP effort to change Obamacare, 18 Democrats crossed the aisle to join Republicans Thursday in replacing the 30-hour work week with the traditional 40 hours, a major boost to small businesses. Voting 248-179, the House passed Indiana Republican Rep. Todd Young’s “Save American Workers Act,” which repealed Obamacare’s 30-hour definition of full-time employment. Going into the vote, Young had nine Democrats supporting the legislation and in the end 18 joined to define a work week as 40 hours. Democratic leaders leveled intense pressure on members to stick with President Obama’s preference

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the Wednesday shooting at Fort Hood made him wish that Congress would pass expanded background checks for gun purchases. “As I was told today, this young man bought this gun a day or two before he killed these people,” Reid said. “Couldn’t we at least have background checks so that people who are ill mentally or felons shouldn’t be able to buy a gun? Even [National Rifle Association] members, the majority of them, support that.” Reid could bring such a bill back to the floor this year. “I would like to bring it back up; we

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – A city board on Thursday gave a Muslim group the go-ahead to remove six crosses from the roof and spires of a century-old former Catholic church so the now-vacant Gothic structure can be used as a mosque. More than 200 people had signed an online petition calling on the Syracuse Landmark Preservation Board to deny an application by North Side Learning Center, the church´s new owner, to remove the crosses and build a six-foot chain-link fence. Before the vote to allow the church alterations, Chairman Don Radke said the board cannot interfere with a decision that involves

There has been outrage in the U.S. over Iran’s bid to have one of the hostage takers who stormed the American Embassy in Tehran serve as its ambassador to the UN in New York. Twenty-nine Republican senators have written to President Obama urging him to deny a visa to Hamid Aboutalebi, who was a member of a Muslim student group that took over the Embassy in 1979 and held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. The State Department says it’s “troubled” by the move, but has not said if it will refuse Aboutalebi a visa. Now Aboutalebi has found support

She said that Ft.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
