The new GOP generation stands up
New York Post, by Seth Lipsky

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/8/2013 5:23:15 AM

It’s hard to recall many more wonderful moments on the floor of the United States Senate than the filibuster mounted Wednesday night by Sen. Rand Paul against President Obama’s nominee to the CIA. The junior senator from Kentucky didn’t stop — or even intend to stop — the elevation of John Brennan, who had already cleared the Intelligence Committee by a wide margin and was sure to be waved through on the final vote. But Paul did signal that there is a faction in the Senate that comprehends that our country is in a constitutional moment. This is America 101.

And the reaction of McCain and the Republican establishment is truly instructive.

The RNC called me for a donation. There is no way I will give them money with the likes of McCain, Graham, Christie, etc. getting any of my money.

This is the changing of the guard.

McCain and Graham just surrendered their leadership positions.

Payback is, indeed, a merfer.

Would the good people of S.C. please get rid of the MCcaindot Lindsey Graham. It will be a while before we get another shot at MCcain but I believe Graham is up in 2014. He needs to go.

My country had a wonderful moment the day Rand Paul and Ted Cruz stood up and articulated their argument about the RESPONSIBILITIES of the senate. And they put to shame the sitting/absent republicans and silent, for the most part, democrats.
Now we need to support these kinds of arguments and not allow the idiots (mccain/graham/dems)to mire us in the weeds of nonsense that they swim in.

Seth Lipsky - along with other writers, radio hosts, and commenters, disparages the dinner 12 Republican senators had with Obama. That had to have been already scheduled, whereas finding on opening on the floor of the Senate when the Dems weren´t controlling the floor was an impromptu moment, albeit one that Sen. Paul and others had prepped for. Senators Johnson, Toomey, and Chambliss(?) showed up after the dinner to lend support - Johnson was particularly disgusted with the lack of government action on the budget. We know where Graham and McCain stand. Sen Paul just drew a line in the sand within the Republicans in the Senate. It will be interesting to see where the other dinner attendees and the other approximately 25 senators that were at neither event line up. Will they align with the Paul/Cruz faction or the McCain/Graham?

I´d like to think this is the case but tea party candidates still face an uphill climb with opposition from both party´s establishments.Being a tea party candidate will also be a useful tool for the left to raise enormous funds in those districts,just like Elizabeth Warren getting huge sums from across the country.. The reason is simple,they´re a threat to the status quo in DC who love things just the way they are including spending binges.

The republicans are hurting themselves with so called entitlement reforms. These programs would have plenty of money if employment was where it should be. There´s no doubt in my mind the explosion in the cost of government the past few years are from the flood of illegals raiding our programs and schools.How else do you explain the explosion in food stamps at the same time car makers are doing pretty well? I´d love to see the demographic breakdown on who´s filing for food stamps the most.

The left already vilifies House tea party members from stopping progress ie.letting Obama bury the country in debt.Any opposition is immediately charged to racism to a black president. I couldn´t care less about Obama´s race and I would happily accept Dr.Carson as our candidate.

Ted Cruz is going to be President one day. God Bless Ted and Rand and Marco Rubio. It´s so great to see these men stand up and defend this country. It´s rare these days. It makes me proud to be an American.

Shame on McCain and Graham. They are petty and vindictive because they aren´t getting the media attention they think they deserve. And they´re just so special because they had dinner with Obama and Rand Paul was stealing the spotlight.

We´ve just witnessed a miracle -- a Republican courageous enough to stand up and speak out forcefully on Republican principles.

Rand Paul´s filibuster was the political equivalent of one of those wheelchair-bound, crippled-for-life individuals at Lourdes who suddenly jumps up and walks for the first time in his life.

Ad to the list of Republicans who to go the name of my Senator Roy Blunt. I had hoped that he would take a role in opposing DiFi, and supporting Paul and Cruz, but he has been AWOL from both. It is almost like he and McCaskil have signed a non-aggression pact.

The ruling class is not pleased with Sen. Paul´s filibuster. They can´t have anyone upsetting their apple cart. They are in control of who gains power and influence. These young guns are a threat because Americans in both parties were impressed by the articulation of our basic freedoms, something they rarely hear coming from Washington. They have seen that standing on principle can bring change. This is the kind of thing that can spark a movement, and the old bulls can´t have that. It would mean the end of their hold on how our government works. I pray that this is a turning point. We have to get out future out of the hands of corrupt politicians.

While I love what Rand Paul did, and I appreciate the other Senators that joined his ranks ON THIS ISSUE, I will say that I´m still EXTREMELY disappointed that Paul was one of 4 Republicans who voted in favor of Chuck Hagel as Def Sec. Point is, don´t get too enamored with Paul, he definitely has his shortcomings. With that said, I will definitely give him his due credit on this one.

Standing strong for the Constitution is the rallying point for the Reps. Hurray for Rand on this one, but the long run may show a different story. Cruz seems to me more reliable. Too bad he was born in Canada as far as presidential aspirations go. As for McPain, he sounds a little jealous that someone other than he is getting attention.

#13: Cruz is qualified to be President. The Constitution requires that only one parent be a natural born U.S. citizen. His mother was born in Delaware.

However, in Obama´s case, even though his mother was born in the U.S. she would not have qualified as a "natural born citizen" to pass on citizenship to him. The law at that time stated that if only one parent was a United States citizen at the time of the child´s birth that parent must have resided in the U.S. for at least 10 years, 5 of which had to be after the age of 16. Obama´s mother was either 17 or 18 at the time of his birth, so technically she did not qualify to pass citizenship to The Won.

I think this shows how hungry the American people are for leadership that will stand up and unequivocally defend the Constitution of the United States of America. It doesn´t necessarily mean that there will be agreement with Rand Paul, et al., on every issue. It just places the focus on the premise for every argument.

Some people in DC seem to have decided that the US Constitution is a "living document" and then set about killing it.

#20 and #30 Please do your research. A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN is the progeny of TWO parents who are both CITIZENS. DO you see the difference? The Constitution requires that the candidate for president must be a NBC. Get it right please. There are reams of disseration that defines this if you look.

McCain is being quoted this morning as referring to Rand, Cruz and those who stood with them as "wacko birds".

This is good. The more this doddering old fool keeps shooting off his mouth this way, the stronger the contrast between him and his RINO buddies with the new "young turks".

Let him return to Obama´s dinner table where the Messiah hand feeds his 12 apostles.

#35 The Constitution, Article 2,sec 1 clause 5 states, No Person except a natural born citizen...shall be eligible for the Office of the President. That´s what qualifies the candidate. The question has been, "What is a natural born citizen?" I have defined that above so a simple-minded low-information voter could understand.

I was saying a long time ago that McCain was not good for this country and remember his state even wanted to recall him a few years back and then, the next thing you know, he wins the nomination to run for President. They are both out of touch with what needs to be done in this country. They have been in Washington TOO long. Maybe it is too late as Obama has a hold on this country that will probably never be broken and we will have to live with it. What a bummer!!!!!

Mark Levin evicerated McCain and Graham on his show last night. He took their accusation that Rand Paul was a conspiracy nut to doubt that our president would ever misuse his power and then proceeded to go through the whole bill of rights sarcastically calling the founders conspiracy nuts for putting those safeguards and restrictions against the power of government in there. He was on a roll. I highly recommend everyone listen to the whole thing!

This is all about ego. The two of them could not believe that while they were attending a dinner with the President, they were being upstaged by a freshman senator who was not invited. He, not they, were the next day´s news. He, however, was the one who seized the moment to demonstrate that this is an administration that believes it has power without constitutional limits. Obama´s ultimate grudging concession will be remembered not because he conceded, but precisely because it was grudging. Rand gets this and held it up for all to see.

Sadly, those who get their names in the press all the time are seen by a large amount of people as being so great at their jobs. If they weren´t, they wouldn´t be getting all the press. Such is McCain and Graham. I´m hard pressed to list anything that either one of them have achieved as a Senator. What bill has their name(s) attached to it? What cause have they campaigned for? All I see is them (and they are not alone) going from one presser to another and making speeches. It´s way past time for them to be sent to the retiree farm.

While not getting totally on board with Rand on everything, I am totally off the boat viz McCain, Graham et al.

The tree of liberty must often be watered with the blood of patriots and it appears that Rand, Cruz, Rubio and a scarce few others are the real patriots.

When I hear the word maverick I think of an unbranded calf. In that sense McCain fits the title, because he does not represent the conservative republican brand any longer. In 2012 many listened to the clown quadriga of McCain/Rove/Graham/Morris and thus giving the sequester king another four years. What a circus!
Paul, Rubio, Cruz, McConnell and yes Wyden keep hammering the fact that the Constitution of the United States of America is the law of the land and not what Holder thinks it should be.
And for heaven’s sakes Ayotte you are smarter than to run with the Rinos.

McCain and Graham are going down the wrong path. They are part of the naive "can´t we all get along" crowd. They view drone comments as accusatory to Obama, a tact that will only turn Obama away from agreeing to any Republican ideas.

The problem here is that we are in a situation where if the technology exists, someone will eventually use it. This goes for drones as well as communications technology that allows easy snooping on citizens. We are moving into a dangerous area with this technology and something needs to be done now in order to protect us from a future tyrannical government.

Insofar as Obama is concerned, he has shown malice towards his political enemies making it reasonable to think he might use these tools against his own people. McCain and Graham, et al don´t see this.

The good news, Rand stood up with a few other good guys, Marco and Ted. The bad news, John Brennan was voted CIA Director. Brennan, an avowed muslim enabler, joins many other muslim supporting appointees and electeds in our government ... to our great danger. Go to Robert Spencer´s www.JIHADWATCH.com today, to the third article, "Jihad Disaster, Islamic supremicist enabler John Brennan confirmed as CIA Director". There is an article and Robert´s one hour video interview with former FBI agent, John Guandolo. This fascinating revelation of suppressed facts may be the most important single interview of the year, learning about the breathtaking infiltration of muslims in our government, and how the softness to this danger applies equally to both so-called parties. Robert is a true hero, and John Guandolo make two of the brightest best informed people you will never see even on Fox TV. Yes, even FoxTV is soft on Jihad/muslim truth.

Agreed, #61. And just heard on the news between Rush segments that Brennan was sworn in at a "Private swearing-in ceremony." Translation: Brennan will not put his hand on the Bible and as a Muslim is sworn to wipe out the "people of the Book" as the Muslims refer to Christians.

A Phoenix rising from the ashes? We all want a truly reformed GOP as the "good" option, so as to avoid a third party as the "least bad" option. For now, all options must remain on the table. Our Republic and our children´s future is at stake.

Godspeed to the GOP´s new guard.

A lot will happen between now and the 2014 primaries.

The new GOP generation stands up... while the old GOP generation gorges at the public trough. Several reports on McCain, Graham and other RINO’s dinner with Obama have pointed out that the President “picked up the tab”. Based on Obama’s history, I’d be willing to bet that “we the people” will actually be the ones who pick up the tab.

McCain and Graham still haven’t caught on that Obama was just using them as media props for his propagandists to use to show the sheeple that he is “reaching across the aisle” and trying to come up with a reasonable, “balanced” solution (by which he, of course, means a mix of additional tax increases – effective immediately – and vague promises of future spending cuts, which aren’t really cuts at all – kind of like the sequester.)

There is a God and He hears our requests!

Last Saturday I got a call from the RNC for a donation. I attempted to be nice and explain to the young man that I could no longer afford to throw good money after bad when our Republican leaders would not stand up to the president. After he attempted to explain to me that in order for them to be strong they need financial support, I lost it. I explained to him that until THEY got some balls and some backbone they will see not one penny of my money... and along came Paul.

Not that the RNC will see a dime yet. I´m waiting to see how this plays out and it´s not looking good with McPain/MissGraham. Guess I´ll just do what I told the RNC, I´m giving my money directly to the candidates I support.

Now, I have to get my ladylike demeanor back. ;-D

Ol´ Jackass Johnny McCain just couldn´t stand any other GOP Senator getting any publicity, especially when Johnny thought all of the cameras would be focused on him and his little girlfriend, the dress-wearing Nancy known as Lindsey Graham. After all, McCain and Graham had just spent the evening dining with Obama and badmouthing their GOP colleagues. It should have been THEIR NIGHT. Chrissy Matthews was finally going to have good things to say about Jackass Johnny once again.

But, no.

Rand Paul stole the spotlight.

And that made the attention-whore Johnny McCain very, very angry. Poor, poor Johnny McCain....

There are 2 distinct classes of citizen...The citizen and the NBC,
NBC to be defined by the Founding Fathers as being born to a Mother and Father BOTH of whom are U.S. Citizens at the time of birth....
BTW...a parent must live in the U.S.A, 5 years past the 14th birthday,Hussien was born b/4 the 5 year requirement...thats a side note

I Stand with Rand..its time to get rid of the Rinos...let them walk over to the other side of the asile..they wont have to reach.they can just sit and be one of the dems...we dont want them...I would love to help a new generation of GOP...its the right thing to do for this time in our political history

McCain was one of the first Brain washed turned to the US and has retained those mental blocks sadly enough. Graham can´t move past his moment in fame and is now an appeaser.
The natural born errors continue on and on--American Citizenship is defined under the rule of "Born of the Soil" not the old EU and British " born of the blood" ie. father´s citizenship.
An American born in any Country with one US born parent is a natural born citizen as is any child born on American soil like it or not.
Only Hawaii followed the complicated mother´s age and such issues when Obe was born.
The real question in obr´s case is did he regain the citizen status waived by his mother when she married Soetero.
That said who better to be president than a real American at heart and in actions.

As for the RNC, apparently Reince Priebus, the Chairman, put the call out for Repubs to support Sen. Paul.

Many did, including House members, although they could not speak on the Floor of the Senate.

As for McCain, he is sounding daft, a little looney. He´s acting stupidly.

A Tale of Two Letters: Why the
Peace Process Went Poof
Commentary Magazine, by Rich Richman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/13/2014 5:46:11 PM     Post Reply
Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

Nevada GOP removes social issues from platform,

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

Generally, when we hear stories about the federal government ripping off the businessman, we tend to think of tales of tax increases or burdensome regulations. But a different type of story crosses our desk this weekend, as a solar power consortium – who already received a quarter billion in grants and tax incentives – takes Uncle Sam to the courthouse because they feel they should have gotten millions more. Federal investigators will spend the next year going through the books of two solar-energy companies tied to billionaire Elon Musk in an effort to show the businesses overvalued sales contracts in

EARLIER this year, a column by a Harvard undergraduate named Sandra Y. L. Korn briefly achieved escape velocity from the Ivy League bubble, thanks to its daring view of how universities should approach academic freedom. Korn proposed that such freedom was dated and destructive, and that a doctrine of “academic justice” should prevail instead. No more, she wrote, should Harvard permit its faculty to engage in “research promoting or justifying oppression” or produce work tainted by “racism, sexism, and heterosexism.” Instead, academic culture should conform to left-wing ideas of the good, beautiful and true, and decline as a matter of

IN THE WORLD of early-20th-century African-American music and people obsessed by it, who can appear from one angle like a clique of pale and misanthropic scholar-gatherers and from another like a sizable chunk of the human population, there exist no ghosts more vexing than a couple of women identified on three ultrarare records made in 1930 and ’31 as Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley. There are musicians as obscure as Wiley and Thomas, and musicians as great, but in none does the Venn diagram of greatness and lostness reveal such vast and bewildering co-extent.

There’s something sinister on the airwaves. It’s sloppy, and it’s cynical, but sinister all the same, and it’s race-hate spewing from the absolute top of the Democratic Party. On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity” that no other “attorney general has ever had to deal with.” ["Black vote," check.] That same day, Politico published an interview where House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi more openly stoked race-hate, saying conservative opposition to amnesty “has a scent of Japanese internment.” ["Asian vote," check.] Later that

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Saturday that Vice President Joe Biden would travel to Kiev this month to show support for the Ukrainian government as U.S. officials expressed new concern over "violence and sabotage" by militants it said were apparently supported by Russia in eastern Ukraine. Biden, set to travel to Kiev on April 22, will become the most senior U.S. official to visit the country since the crisis began there.

North Carolina answers Democrats’
question ‘What vote fraud?

It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise. She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship. President Obama nevertheless

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.” Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens had an op-ed piece in the Washington Post a couple of days ago that still has my brain doing backflips. He claims that, “Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the wisdom of such rules and to evaluate the costs and benefits that rule changes can be expected to produce.” Stevens certainly did not believe this when he signed onto decisions overturning Texas’s sodomy law, or when arguing that state laws limiting abortion were unconstitutional, or when striking down Louisiana’s death penalty for raping a child (this is

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. 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. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

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. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

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

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on
