Karl Rove and
the definition of insanity

Daily Caller, by Todd Cefaratti

Original Article

Posted By:tocsin, 2/12/2013 6:27:23 AM

With their attacks on tea party conservatives, Karl Rove and his cohorts have fired the first salvo in the Great GOP War of 2013. The strangest aspect of this is that even as Rove denounces conservatism in favor of his unique brand of watered-down compromise, he appears to be looking to capitalize on conservatism itself. While he may call his latest super PAC the “Conservative Victory Project,” Rove most decidedly does not wish for conservative victory. The aim of his group is to push moderate candidates while posturing as the savior of the embattled Republican Party.

Comments:
Rather than engaging in a debate, RINO´s and their consultants i.e. Rove & the boys attack conservatives,Tea Party leaders and members.

Rove is a Fifth Columnist. Unfortunately, with the complicity of the left-wing media, he and his co-conspirators can really hurt the true conservative candidates and movement.

Rove is a brilliant, hard-working, valuable man (in a specific, limited role). Just understand that his "thing" is matching campaigns to a winning majority of voters. He´s a battle-winner--not a war winner.

OUR thing is the opposite: educating voters to match winning campaigns.

We´re concerned with stopping the majority from voting to destroy their own futures. Rove is concerned with stopping nominations that don´t move voters.

That´s what he knows: moving people to the polls. But America´s desparate challenge now is moving people to the TRUTH.

We do need to have his talents (specifically, his analysis) in our arsenal--just NOT in any leadership role.

(...which is why the media-left will continue to promote him as the face of Conservatism. He´s a ratings two-fer: he agitates both the left & the right)

Rovettes are the vipers in the next. The oily voices that speak to undermine anyone who wants to clean up the mess in DC. Rovettes have proved to like Dem lite more than a reform candidate. I personally do not know what Rovettes believe in except power for ´their´ people. Certainly Rove is not for small government. He is not for defending Christians or the unborn. So what is Rove´s brand? Pure power and influence. Nothing more nothing less. When the Bush´s backed Huchenson over Perry, I knew then that the moderates were not ever going to back a conservative. What is with the name of Rove´s group. What a lie. Moderates: I would rather vote for a Dem over a moderate Repub because the Dem stabs in the front, the moderate stabs in the back. I have voted for my last Rove backed candidate.

I wonder how many times his financial backers will pour money into his ideas. He lost big in 2012. I expect that he will lose again in 2014.

Rove is under the impression that you can just keep running ads and that people will vote for you.

He does not understand that you need a ground game. The ground game is the most important thing.

I am a conservative that tends to vote for the GOP. He needs to understand the difference.

I am NOT a Rove fan. However, at least he is organizing SOMETHING. The biggest weakness the Tea Party has is their inability to ORGANIZE, on a national scale---or even on a local scale. They should be focused on 2014, midterms where their major enemy, the MSM, is somewhat stifled. But, no. Without some type of cohesive well-defined plan and a leader or Board, I´m afraid the Tea Party cannot be effective. Times have changed and apparently Conservatives don´t want to learn how to use technology to keep us from being isolated and divided.

Rove is a king maker. Or at least that is how he views himself. He lacks the media charisma to ever be in a real position of responsible authority, so he goes for the next best thing: the power behind the throne. Too bad he failed miserably last election cycle. What was his track record? Three of ten candidates? For a whopping 200 million? That kind of win ratio we can do without. And the name of his PAC? Yeah that insults the intelligence of your average American conservative. Bit of advice for Mr. Rove - go teach poly sci @ Georgetown or American University or some other self-important school, you´ll fit right in

Why is it that democrats get exactly what they want in elections, while conservative Republicans are expected to hold their noses and vote for a moderate who does not share their core beliefs? First time (McCain) shame on you, the second time (Romney) shame on me. There will be no 3rd time. I did it Rove´s way twice, NOW let´s do it the conservative way.

There is a tendency among some of our valued posters to misidentify the interests of the Republican Party with those of the republic. They are distinct. Karl Rove is a Republican political operative whose agenda is power. The challenge facing the Republican is how to get elected. The challenge facing the republic is how to align power with principle. Based on recent history, I am not convinced Rove is as good at the former as his supporters think, and I´m reasonably sure conservative principles are not first principles for Karl Rove´s project.

I really don´t understand Rove, we´ve tried Republicanism for the last two decades and it´s given us liberal lite policy. He seems to be of the mind that liberalism can´t be stopped and reversed but only slowed. I´m sorry but I don´t want to sign up for that. We took a wrong turn Bush 41 and we´ve been going in the wrong direction ever since.

Liberal Republicans, as this thread and 2012 demonstrate, claim credit for what isn´t their´s and blame everyone else for their failures. Recent days have clarified who they are and how they are guided by personalities loyalty and probably patronage in lieu of principles. Their contempt for bitter clingers and those who believe limited government is a social issue has floated up from below the surface. They really do think they are slicker and smarter than the rest of us tubes in the salon.

Rove is a failure. He is another smart person who´s plan doesn´t work. His candidates lose or win marginally and then turn out to be traitors or failures. He turns off the majority base in favor of majority MSM perception. He follows the philosophy the same as that which has us in the mess we are in. He strives for a balance of Rep-Dem on the Dem side of the scale. The Demz are striving for the complete elimination of opposition. It´s just like 9/11. The enemy had declared war on us openly but we weren´t fighting back. We were trying to understand them, they are trying to wipe us out.

It´s an old liberal trick: when you can´t win an argument on the facts, resort to name calling. RDS? Really? Rove can point to only two electoral successes, 2000 and 2004. Those had more to do with the candidate than with Rove. Rove is an opportunist, a would-be power broker. His touted powers of analysis are much overblown. Look at his performance in 2012! Could anybody have been further off the truth? Let him go raise money which seems to be his strongest suit. Let him stay away from strategizing for the Republican party. He is only destroying it.

I think Karl Rove is really acting as a secret agent for the Obama regime? What better way to demoralize and destroy the GOP than to have your agent near the top of the opposition party? It has been done before in history. Karl, join the Justice Roberts Club Of Traitors along with fat boy Christie
and "Crying John" Boehner. Remember, I think Obama told us once, "You don´t know what you´re dealing with".

The Budget Sequester Is a Success
Wall Street Journal, by Stephen Moore    Original Article
Posted By: tocsin- 8/12/2013 5:10:02 AM     Post Reply
The biggest underreported story out of Washington this year is that the federal budget is shrinking and much more than anyone in either party expected. Consider the numbers: According to the Congressional Budget Office, annual outlays peaked at $3.598 trillion in fiscal 2011. After President Obama´s first two years in office, many in Washington expected that number to hit $4 trillion by 2014. Instead, spending fell to $3.537 trillion in fiscal 2012, and is on pace to fall below $3.45 trillion by the end of this fiscal year (Sept. 30). The $150 billion budget decline of 4%

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon moved Tuesday to ease the pain of mandatory, unpaid furloughs that civilian employees have had to bear for a month because of budgetary pressures, cutting the number of days off from 11 to six. Defense officials said the Pentagon found sufficient savings in the final months of the current fiscal year to lessen the burden on those who have had to take a day off a week without pay since early July. As a result, the final furlough day for most workers will be next week.

It has been a busy few weeks for the Securities and Exchange Commission. In May, the SEC charged two cities—Harrisburg, Pa., and South Miami, Fla.—with securities fraud for allegedly deceiving investors in their municipal bonds. This follows similar fraud charges against states, New Jersey in 2010 and Illinois in March, after SEC investigators uncovered what they called "material omissions" and "false statements" in bond documents related to those state´s pension funds. With Harrisburg, however, the SEC has gone further and charged the city government with "securities fraud

Lois Lerner, the IRS official in charge of tax-exempt groups, took her too-clever-by-half act to Congress yesterday and may have waived her right to claim her Fifth Amendment privilege in the process. Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, she couldn’t resist citing a little history, bragging on her public service, instructing the committee as to the purpose of the Fifth Amendment, and proclaiming her innocence of everything the committee might be interested in — all before asserting her Fifth Amendment privilege. Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) was a bit taken aback.

Earlier this year, the Government launched the clasp for those who had taken part in the air offensive during the Second World War, but stopped short of awarding a medal, as campaigners had been calling for. But figures suggest that barely half of those eligible for the lesser award have so far applied, with veterans snubbing the “pathetic” award. (snip)only a clasp, rather than a medal, as “cheese-paringly” mean, adding: “What did those men do except lay down their lives for their duty? My father would have been raging – I know that to be sure.”

A jury in Pennsylvania has convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell of three counts of murder, one count of involuntary manslaughter, and several counts of performing illegal late-term abortions at his facility in West Philadelphia. Gosnell is eligible for the death sentence, an end that would be as close to justice as earthly powers can mete out in this episode. The English language does not contain a word sufficient for describing the crimes of Kermit Gosnell; “murder” will do, but only for legal purposes. Gosnell’s human abattoir is the logical endpoint of our morally fraudulent national approach to abortion,

The expanding Internal Revenue Service scandal could hardly be any more Drudgeriffic. Well, maybe if in addition to singling out groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, the agency had purchased a few billions rounds of hollow-point ammo. Maybe then. But even as is, the scandal is looking pretty bad and getting worse. The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that the IRS also “scrutinized conservative groups for raising political concerns over government spending, debt and taxes or even for advocating making America a better place to live.” We’ll see where this eventually goes.

The Trials of Father MacRae

Last Christmas Eve, his 18th behind bars, Catholic priest Gordon MacRae offered Mass in his cell at the New Hampshire state penitentiary. A quarter-ounce of unfermented wine and the host had been provided for the occasion, celebrated with the priest´s cellmate in attendance. Sentenced to 33½-67 years following his 1994 conviction for sexual assault against a teenage male, Father MacRae has just turned 60. The path that led inexorably to that conviction would have been familiar to witnesses of the manufactured sex-abuse prosecutions that swept the nation in the 1980s and early 1990s

Next week, the Senate will begin making changes to and, hopefully, improve the immigration-reform legislation I introduced with several colleagues last month. This part of the process is a chance to fix America´s broken immigration system and end today´s de facto amnesty for those who live here illegally. It will also show that Washington can work when leaders listen to the American people and invoke their wisdom in debates and legislative work. In January, I outlined my principles for conservative immigration reform in these pages—principles that guided the drafting of this legislation.

Last summer, in the dead of night, three peace activists penetrated the exterior of Y-12 in Tennessee, supposedly one of the most secure nuclear-weapons facilities in the United States. A drifter, an 82-year-old nun and a house painter. They face trial next week on charges that fall under the sabotage section of the U.S. criminal code. And if they had been terrorists armed with explosives, intent on mass destruction? That nightmare scenario underlies the government’s response to the intrusion. This is the story of two competing worldviews, of conscience vs. court, of fantasy vs. reality, of history vs. the future.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
