GOP Poll: Sen. Alexander Trails Generic
"Conservative" By 5 Points

Breitbart Big Government, by Mike Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/19/2013 6:08:59 AM

A new poll of Republican voters in Tennessee shows Sen. Lamar Alexander trailing a generic "conservative" challenger by 5 points. The poll, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, shows a "credible conservative candidate" leading Alexander 49.5-44.9%. While a serious opponent hasn´t yet emerged to challenge Alexander, the poll shows how vulnerable he is in next year´s August primary. The poll, from Triton Polling, interviewed over 680 Republican voters in the Volunteer State last week. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.7%. Around 64% of Republican voters, at least somewhat, approve of the job Alexander is doing, an unsurprising result for

Sadly, generic candidates usually do well in polls. When the actual candidate appears (Akin?, O´Donnell?) things can go haywire. Hope TN can primary Lamar with someone up to the job.

We in TN are not pleased with Lamar or Corker. What is so weird is that in a state that bleeds bright red, we cannot field a true conservative candidate!

I would run-- but I would make Rand Paul seem normal and Ted Cruz seem liberal in contrast.

Now where did I put my 9mm?

Conservative Tennessee deserves better than a RINO-Obama-rubber stamp.

Dittos, #2. There are moves underway to provide a viable challenger to Alexander. It´s time for states like TN to elect true conservatives in the GOP primaries (first option) or get on with consolidating various conservative splinter parties into a strong new party (backup plan).

Polls that compare a known quantity with a generic are fraudulent. Note that the poll also says Alexander has a 64% approval. He´s in big trouble. Not! No doubt he´d easily win a primary challenge. I used to live in TN. I never had any issue with Alexander. Corker, on the other hand ...

He´s one of those level-headed compromisers. Ugh. It would be nice to see him go. The Pubbies are doomed, anyway.

New party is what´s needed. Disaffected Pubs, about 3/4 of the Independents, and a smattering of conservative democrats could do the trick.

Independents are just Pubs or Dims who don´t want to admit it for some reason or another.

"I vote the man, not the party!" One of the biggest lines of BS in history.

GOP, conservatives can´t rock DC

Canada Free Press, by Neil W. McCabe    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 2/13/2014 11:51:19 AM     Post Reply
One year after committing himself and his speakership to reducing the federal budget deficit, Rep. John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio) delivered to President Barack Obama and the Democrats a one-year hall pass that will suspend the debt ceiling until 2015. The vote was 221 to 201 with 28 Republicans, like Boehner and his merry band of hacks, voting alongside their BFF’s across the aisle. Members of the House GOP leadership had set the table for a small fight with the Democrats by tying the increase in the debt ceiling to the restoration of cuts in military pensions—hardly the stuff of heroic last stands.

With all the smirking on the left about their electoral victories, it’s important to remember that Democrats haven’t won the hearts and minds of the American people. They changed the people. If you pour vinegar into a bottle of wine, the wine didn’t turn, you poured vinegar into it. Similarly, liberals changed no minds. They added millions of new liberal voters through immigration. So why are Republicans like Trey Gowdy, Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan and John Boehner making fools of themselves in order to spot the Democrats three more touchdowns? The House Republicans’ “Standards for Immigration Reform,” for example, contains this fat,

Immigration and National Survival

Posted By: SpeedMaster- 2/12/2014 9:45:17 AM     Post Reply
When pondering our obsession with immigration, I´m reminded of how people in the ridiculous dystopian film Idiocracy were watering their crops with an energy drink called Brawndo. And even though the crops weren´t growing, the suggestion to try water instead was met with the following conditioned response in the drink´s defense: "It´s got what plants crave! It´s got electrolytes!" No one knew what electrolytes were. No one could explain why they were in Brawndo. It was all sloganeering. And so it is with immigration. Why do we have immigration? "Because it´s got what America craves! It´s got people!" But why does

This week and last we learned from Democrats that Obamacare is society´s latest liberating influence. Americans can stop and smell the roses now that they are unshackled from the adult responsibility of providing for their own basic necessities. The need to perform honest yet unpleasant or even difficult work is a thing of the past. Free at last! However, those of us who work for a living are feeling a lot less liberated now that we must subsidize the sabbaticals of those who vote for a living. In 1858, other Democrats were living a "liberated" life at least somewhat similar to their

They’ve lost what little trust I had in them. The Establishment Republicans in the US House of Representatives, I mean. Let me be clear. If the GOP manages to pass amnesty for illegal aliens through the House of Representatives before November of 2016, they will have to ram it down the throats of the conservative base. If they are prepared to do that, then we invite then to, by all means, go for it. But they should be prepared to assume minority party status in a three party system afterwards. I say that because conservatives are preparing to bolt the party and

Dead Souls In the
Republican Leadership
American Thinker, by John T. Bennett    Original Article

"America cannot become the world and still be America." So warned the late Harvard political scientist Samuel Huntington in his 2004 article "America´s Dead Souls." Huntington´s article was prophetic, and it explains why some GOP pols have taken the side of big business and illegal immigrants over the interests of our nation. "In a variety of ways, the American establishment, governmental and private, has become increasingly divorced from the American people," Huntington wrote. Huntington´s core point was that the American elite has grown extremely distant -- socially, economically, morally, and politically -- from the public. This trend, he warned, undermines

Last week, U.S. House speaker John Boehner backed down on immigration surrender. It took a firestorm of grassroots opposition to make the speaker drop Paul Ryan´s cave-in to big business interests (led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce) and the left, arrayed throughout the Democratic Party, the mainstream media, show biz, academia, and whatever other crags and holes they inhabit. And Democrat-supporting Hispanic pressure groups, which the GOP establishment believes needs to be appeased. Note that the speaker only backed down. The bone of immigration surrender is still lodged in Boehner´s pearly-whites. The speaker isn´t to be trusted -- on immigration

Senator Tom Harkin; Once

If Justin Beiber had returned from Cuba smitten with its healthcare and calling it “awesome!” most Americans would understand. But Iowa Senator and Obamacare champion Tom Harkin serves as chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. He just returned from an official tour of Stalinist Cuba hailing its healthcare as “quite remarkable.” “Cuba’s a poor country,” he marveled. “But they have a lower child mortality rate than us….their public health system is quite remarkable.” What Senator Harkin actually believes to be true or “quite remarkable” might be (implicitly) worthy of emulation. If so, this would affect the lives of

It’s easy to downplay or even dismiss the threat by Iranian warships said to be on their way to sail close to U.S. maritime borders if one merely looks at this move as taking place in a geopolitical vacuum. The problem is that we are not residing in such a vacuum, and the majority of Americans are not understanding the significance of events that have been taking place since the planning phases of the “Arab Spring.” The American public is not getting the truth from the White House or the Western media that appears to be covering for, if not facilitating

The Final Constitutional Option

Posted By: SpeedMaster- 2/9/2014 7:11:05 AM     Post Reply
Having been dormant for centuries, a potent section in the U.S. Constitution is now in the minds and on the lips of a new generation of reformers who are determined to keep the nation out of an abyss. As America stares hard at the darkness ahead, the new reformers have begun to popularize this forgotten constitutional provision that might well become Official Washington´s undoing. The problem, which hardly needs stating, is that the federal government has become the very monster the founders anticipated. Quite likely, the beast we face is far beyond anything that could have been imagined by the founding

Obama´s Praetorian Guards!

Our puppet dictator is not destroying our republic all by his lonesome. He is executing the game plan designed by his puppeteers, and promoted and protected by the puppeteer-controlled media, but isn’t there more to this saga, than meets the eye? Are you familiar with the term, ‘Praetorian Guard’? The definition of ‘Praetorian’ is, ‘Venal; Corruptible’. The definition of ‘Venal’ is, ‘Willing to sell one’s influence, especially in return for a bribe; open to bribery; mercenary’. Combine ‘Praetorian’ with ‘Guard’, and we have a situation in which guards can be corrupted? Are they corrupted for, or against, the people who elected

‘The House should sharply reduce IRS funding until the agency is more responsive.” Well, I’d have omitted everything after “funding” but this was still an astute observation, offered at the conclusion of Thursday’s excellent Wall Street Journal editorial. I’m grateful to have smart guys on the team, even if slumming with us power-of-the-purse radicals may get them booted from the GOP’s “We’re only one-half of one-third” circle of submission. The editors were exercised over the revenue agency’s latest shenanigans, which include covering up its past shenanigans — the willful targeting of conservative groups in order to frustrate their opposition to Obama-administration

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived.

Famed former CNN host Larry King said he has never heard of Juanita Broaddrick Thursday in an interview with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV. Broadrrick, a former Arkansas nursing home worker, accused President Clinton of raping her during the late 1970s in a 1998 Dateline interview. Malzberg was describing a double standard of media coverage during the 2012 conventions, noting left wing pundits dubbed the GOP convention a “convention of rapists” while remaining silent on President Clinton’s keynote address despite sexual assault allegations directed against the former president. King interjected “Hold up, hold up. Stop! Bill Clinton was accused of rape?” Malzberg reacted

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in direct contact with President Barack Obama at least 18 times between October 2012 and October 2013, including seven occasions where her draft calendar showed Obamacare as the topic of conversation. The news appears to contradict her insistence that Obama was in the dark about problems plaguing the ill-fated healthcare.gov website in the months leading up to its October 1, 2013 launch. The Hill newspaper reported Thursday that documents released through a Freedom of Information Act request show meetings, events and phone calls where the two were together. They also show at

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

In a segment on last night’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, political commentator and prodigal GOP son Ron Reagan called out Sen. Ted Cruz’s latest filibustering of a Senate bill to increase the debt ceiling as self-destructive maneuver that achieved nothing — except, perhaps, hastened the destruction of the GOP. “What exactly was on Ted Cruz’s mind?” a boggled Reagan asked. “What was he thinking of in terms of his Senate colleagues?

I imagine the only thing worse than being forced to watch CNN inside an airport terminal is being forced to watch it in a doctor’s office.

The president of Family Health Care directed staff to block Fox News after a board member complained about our network’s coverage of the Affordable Care Act, an employee told me. “The board member complained that patients were turning the channel to Fox News,” said the employee who asked

And anyone who heard the comments knows that’s not what I was saying,” Cuomo said when asked about his comments at a press conference. “To the extent people want to have a political dialogue, that’s what it is.” Cuomo came under fire from conservatives last month when he said “extreme conservatives, who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay … have no place in the state of

Is demonic possession real or the manifestation of mental illness? In assisting priests in nearly 100 exorcisms, Adam Blai has become a true believer in good and evil, God and the devil. "If you’ve seen the things in the Gospels played out in front of you, it ceases to become faith. It’s knowledge,” says Blai. Former Allegheny County commissioner Bob Cranmer says he shares that same knowledge. He says his home was possessed. “I’ve seen it; I’ve seen crucifixes bent in half repeatedly. I’ve seen Rosary beads torn apart. That doesn’t happen,” said Cranmer. “That’s an evil. That’s not Casper
