The joint Obama-Rove betrayal
destined to unite conservatives

Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod

Original Article

Posted By:snowcloud, 2/5/2013 11:17:10 AM

Thank God for Mark Levin, who tells it like it is, depressing as it is. American conservatives have an enemy every bit as destructive as President Barack Hussein Obama. Former Bush administration adviser Karl Rove should be renamed to identify who he truly is, ‘Karl Rogue’. As Levin describes it, in real time the ship of state Titanic is heading full-speed toward the iceberg known as the Fundamental Transformation of America. Obama is the captain of the Titanic, but the “barnacles on the side of the Titanic” are “Karl Rove and his puppet Stephen J. Law”.

Comments:
I haven´t watched Fox News since before the election because I REFUSE to give viewership to a news station that gives minutes to phony conservatives who are wolves in sheep´s clothing. I´ve about had it with Hannity too.

I cringe every time I read a post by a Obama follower that FoxNews is biased and conservative. FoxNews is NOT to be trusted as a voice for true conservatism. I´m just putting that out there.

I heard Mark Levin´s expose´ of Rove and crew last evening. There is no refuting the record. Rove has been a failure insofar as conservative causes are concerned. For details, read the transcript of Levin´s show. Fox should cut Rove loose.

Mark Levin is just another complain about everything all the time conservative. I may agree with this type of conservative 90% of the time on specific policy issues but they will never be satisfied ever. Every thing that is done that they don´t agree with 100% is a slight to them and those they diagree with are framed as less than conservative.

Yes sir, there are times where people can be absolute in their political views. But that has to be within their own segment or their peer group.

To be absolute when it involves a majority of people who have different views. Which ranges from extreme to minor differences. To be absolute in this setting is “stupid, dumb and ignorant.”

We lost the Senate by following this ideology of the moronic imbecile thinking.

Remember the witch from DE. the duh, duh from NV., the moronic speaking Akin,. Likewise the most stupid loss was the Luger seat by the dimwit who knew the foreknowledge of Gods actions and thoughts.

I am a hard core, very religious Republican.

Lets not be stupid dumb and ignorant.

Remember the following; “Second place is nothing but first loser.”

Yes, the Rove-Overs are the same as the Marxists but go under the Republican name.

This choice of words is not helpful.

Conservatives need to engage in ideas. We have become noting more than intellectual tattle-tales. It´s not working.

Conservatives are the reason that America was that "shining city on a hill". Lately we have become a whining city in the dumps.

I agree with the principals of McLeod´s piece, but we need to be more careful in our rhetoric. We won´t win any hearts and minds this way.

If there was any uniting, Ron Paul was our chance. The so called conservatives house a huge portion of those who support the war machine and somehow think carpet bombing Iraq had something to do with the Saudi attack on the World Trade center. The Bush family is every bit as dangerous as Obama.

Ask any Liberal (ok even some conservatives), how many show hosts on Foxnews are Liberal? How many openly Gays are there?

If they are all still there it was five Liberals and one Gay (Shep). Not to mention all the hired Democrat "Contributors".

Based on this, how can any intelligent person say Foxnews is "right wing", "republican" and other ignorant names?

All those here who speak against Fox are those who want Fox to lick their behinds and be ALL Conservative. If they did that then they could not claim "fair and balanced".

So which do you prefer, "fair and balanced" with news of both sides, or "lick your behind your way or the highway"?

It will take a lot of money and influence to overcome Karl Rove. I suspect his goal is to get Jeb Bush as the next President. Jeb was a very popular Governor and did great things. Not sure, just yet, how he would be as President. Maybe one day folks will wake up and realize how Great Sarah would be as President.

Sad to see how the message lately seems to center on how horrible,bad, nasty everything done by any Republican - right, moderate, etal.....has become the news-of-the-day story. Wish we could try to stay united in some way, and direct our venom at the true problem - the Progressive/Leftist agenda.

#12 - the problem for many of us is that we don´t trust the Repubs anymore than the Dems. My RINO Congressman votes like a Dem as much as not. He votes like a Dem on big things - Cap and Trade, raising debt limit, increasing taxes, not cutting spending, and then makes a big deal on votes that don´t matter.

Many of us are focused on the Progressive/leftist agenda, but see too many of the Republicans do nothing more than make a whole lot of noise and lip service before they vote to move the Progressive/leftist agenda forward,

See how they are already positioning to cave on legalizing illegal aliens?

Apparently many find reality to painful to absorb. Republican politics never had anything to do w/principled conservatism. Never! Since post Civil War, the R party has been secular, progressive and corporatist. It´s POTUS nominees being mute testament to that home truth; excepting Coolidge and Reagan. Conservatism, born in classical Athens, evolved during Scholasticism, culminating during 18th&19th century Britain w/Hume, Burke, Pitt, Disraeli, Palmerston; among others. The claim, made regularly, that one is a republican and a conservative is brainless and delusional blather akin to claiming one is a Catholic Buddhist. Lincoln observed that a ´House divided against itself cannot stand´. The GOP rank and file is center-right w/a leadership that is faddish lefty typified by feckless and incompetent failures such as Bush, McCain, Romney and Rove. Time the GOP carcass was buried.

The Progressive Leftist Agenda is a child of the Republican Party starting with Teddy Roosevelt. Nixon "we are all Keynesians now"
took us off the gold standard so that we could expand government and fund the EPA. The elder George Bush announced global government with his "New World Order" speech and he started the unaffordable unearned "earned income credit." George Bush the younger handed our country over to war racketeers and destroyed the Fourth Amendment via the Patriot Act. Two factions of one Progressive fascist takeover.

Speaking of feckless and not conservative enough, with few exceptions, is not correct. Reagan was considered a spendthrift, ditto with GW Bush, they were not but the paul, palin and gawd knows who else they would choose are just never satisfied. Taking a brief quote out of a speech is silly and proves nothing. Lincoln started the civil war and should be impeached. All because of a misplaced shot from a ship. We were never united after that guy left the scene.

The American public has been lied to for decades by its political class who, once corrupted, crave the fame, sex, drugs, wealth and most importantly the power. The lies are solidified into truth by the once media, now propaganda ministry.

The further this nation wanders from God´s path the worse our society will become.

Comrade Hussein ObaMao´s election was a turning point in America. She chose with great glee to become a nation of men instead of a nation of law. This will inevitably lead the new Amerika much more quickly away from God´s path and his hand of protection.

Those who have faith must unite, stand up and speak out before it is too late!

While the worst administration in American history has been perfecting the Big Lie that all dissent to their policy stems from conspiracy theorist wackos, they are the biggest conspiracy of all. At this stage of the Fundamental Transformation of America, the wake up call should be glaringly obvious. The administration controls the ‘news’. They control the narrative. They call the shots. They do the branding and the smearing with the name-calling they intend to make stick. While various agencies under the control of the administration paint patriots as dissidents, the EPA, their lead agency for change, has been using Americans—including children—as lab rats. “Report:

Proof positive that the big global warming/climate change scam has forced pollution off the global radar screen is coming out of China, where Henan Province has been selling canned air to its residents for more than a year. Bottled air is selling like proverbial hot cakes in smog-challenged China. “Chinese multimillionaire sells eight million 80-cents cans of fresh air in ten days as pollution levels climb to record highs.” (Daily Mail, Feb. 1, 2013) “Chen Guangbiao, who made his fortune in the recycling business and is a high-profile philanthropist, is selling soda pop-sized cans of air, purportedly from far-flung, pristine regions of China

Don’t expect the Vatican to collapse when President Barack Obama meets there with Pope Francis today.

Think of Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Barack Obama as who they really are: two self-propelled power grabbers of two separate nations singing loudly from the very same choir book. In the identifiable voices now rousing the world in the ‘Red Choir of the Peoples Republic’, Putin is the booming baritone. Musical notes coming from Obama are more of the pipsqueak kind with a multitude of mainstream media voices being the stand-out in the irreverent ‘hymns’ he sings. Their Gregorian-like chant, “O-Bam-Aaaa” sometimes gets lost with the runaway baritone show stealer when performing on stage.

It should go without saying that who ever controls the food and water supply controls the entire population.

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.

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

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

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.
