Social conservatives to RNC:
Don´t be ´Pandering Idiots´

National Review Online, by Betsy Woodruff

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 3/19/2013 6:58:14 AM

The Republican National Committee’s support of Senator Rob Portman’s flip on gay marriage has infuriated social conservatives. Though they don’t doubt that RNC chairman Reince Priebus is on their side, some say his vocal praise on Monday of Portman’s new stance could alienate values voters. “I think [the RNC] should pretty much ignore him,” says Phyllis Schlafly, a longtime conservative activist, in an interview with National Review Online. “I think he has made a mistake, and he probably won’t get reelected.”

Last time I checked, pandering to illegals and gays is the purview of the rat party. No TRUE Conservative will have any of "it."

Some of us think Portman was the one who attacked us. He could have just supported his son personally and not demanded a change in the law. Those who support marriage are not now entitled to defend it because of his personal views? Or perhaps we should be persuaded instead by that expert on marriage, Hillary Clinton?

That isn´t what is happening Rabbit. "Tolerance" does not mean throwing out the moral compass because some senator´s son is gay. This is the left´s attack on Christian morals and traditional marriage. They couldn´t care less about "inclusiveness", or "tolerance".
The idiots here are the left´s useful ones.
That conservatives have values that don´t change is not a purity test.
Support John effing Kerry, Rabbit. He served in Viet Nam.

Poor gay people. We make them sit in their wheelchairs all day and won´t even let them get married!

I have children. I love my children, but I have not and will not support their bad behavior and bad choices are still bad choices, which I do not support. That does not mean I still don´t love them. Portman´ flip flop shows a lack of moral fiber, and a disturbing moral flexibility.

This is why judges and juries aren´t allowed have a personal interest in the cases which are heard in their courtroom -- it makes for bad decisions.

IF men married men; women, women then we would be way short of little bunnies hopping around. Easter symbol would need to be changed for the children. BUT WAIT there will be no children, right? At least not from that particular couple. So why marry...because you love someone or to procreate. Stand on principles dammit.

Liberals are also the ones most consumed with the idea of overpopulation. They generally seem antagonistic to large families (except illegal aliens) or even the idea of children - note their derogatory term ´breeders.´ This is just one more reason growing numbers of people don´t see anything important or different about marriage. And so if it´s not that big a deal, if it´s just about being with someone you love, then the only reason to deny it to homosexuals is because you hate them.

They were given the opportunity of ´civil union´. As ever, for the militant LGBT community that is never enough.

God´s Mosaic Law never compromised with sin or evil, nor should any God-fearing nation´s political system, or its leaders.

Gender rebellion is a sin of degeneracy (it only gets worse), sexual arrogance, and evil. They live for sex, but contrary to God´s definition of legitimate sex. Take away the hormones of the gender confused, and they´re miserable and lost. That´s why you never see a happy old "queen," or "dike". They know their lifestyle is wrong, but rather than admit it, they choose their sin, and blame the moral society, instead.

Up until the 1990´s homosexuality was classified a mental illness, until the homo-nazis demanded it be revoked and "normalized," which it isn´t.

Hollywood and Washington DC are rife with homo-nazis seeking to destroy the moral fabric of this nation. If homos demand protected class status, then there must be a Federal law requiring all homos register with the Federal Gov´t, just like the disabled and minorities must do.

Aren´t there any mainstream republicans left who actually hold true to core beliefs?

Phyllis Schlafly is right.

It is one thing for Portman to let his son´s homosexualism influence his accptance of sexual deviancy - although he didn´t seem be influenced when other fathers had to cope with the same choice.

But it is quite another for the political party of ethics and morality to openly support his sudden embrace of homosexualism.

That is the purview of the democrat party.

Three pictures in the
Washingtonian that make
Jay Carney look ridiculous
Mediaite, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/12/2014 7:10:07 AM     Post Reply
The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

The chairman of the House Committee on Veterans ­Affairs said Wednesday that dozens of VA hospital patients in Phoenix may have died while awaiting medical care. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., said staff investigators also have evidence that the Phoenix VA Health Care System keeps two sets of records to conceal prolonged waits that patients must endure for ­doctor appointments and treatment. "It appears as though there could be as many as 40 veterans whose deaths could be ­related to delays in care," ­Miller announced to a stunned audience during a committee hearing Wednesday.

A once-prominent socialite was found guilty Tuesday in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband after spending years abroad living a lavish lifestyle across Europe. Pamela Phillips, 56, had pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. During the trial that began in February, Phillips´ lawyers told jurors their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano and that she was the victim of overzealous authorities who failed to follow other leads. They said Phillips was already a successful real estate broker with her own money, and suggested that Triano had

President Obama will host two events on the economy this week as Democrats seek to pivot the political discussion away from the healthcare law. Democrats dispute that that the healthcare law will be a liability for the party in this year’s elections, and celebrated the news last week that ObamaCare enrollments topped 7 million. Still, they argue that jobs and the economy will be the central battleground in November. “That’s the debate that the election will be about, jobs and the budget,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week.

Nancy Pelosi pushes campaign finance reform

Republican megadonors wouldn’t flood elections with private money if federal law forced individuals to immediately disclose their gifts, not only in public records but in advertisements too, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday. “The Chamber of Commerce told us that if their members had to disclose, they wouldn’t give to these secret PACs,” Pelosi said. Pelosi’s comments come as House Democrats plan to aggressively push for campaign finance reforms after the Supreme Court decision on Wednesday to eliminate caps on the total amount of money an individual can give to candidates, party committees and PACs.

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.

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

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.

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.
