Help Wanted: Principled, Conservative Leaders
Town Hall, by Star Parker

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 12/30/2013 12:35:28 AM

Polls show that three out of four Americans say the nation is on the wrong track. Disapproval ratings of our president are lodged above fifty percent. Clearly, whatever was generating the glow that got the most left-wing president in American history elected twice is starting to fade. Despite the considerable human experience from around the world that socialism does not work, and the considerable experience in our own country that human freedom and capitalism does work, many Americans bought the left-wing sweet talk and sugar-coated promises from Barack Obama that this time things would be different. As Obamacare socialism implodes, as every conservative

Oh yes the old leadership problem. Solution: Chris Christie. He can lead the herd of Wildebeests right over the cliff and into to croc infested river. Lamestream state run media will hold this guy high on their shoulders as the cure for all that ails this country, and Paul Ryan will be his Veep running mate. At which point Hillary will win in a landslide. Just like our Zero Hero, who will miss the chance to elect the first woman in history as President after electing the first black man as President. It´s already a done deal.

The left is always trying to fix something and of course their fixes are never free or get positive results.Once a new arm of the government is established,it never goes away and gets automatic spending increases from year to year.

A very alarming number of 3rd graders can´t read at grade level,so why is Head Start growing and expanding if it´s not working?The answer would be it would be a lot worse if we didn´t have the program.Never mind a huge chunk of HS money has been shifted to teaching adult aliens,who don´t belong here,how to read and write English.So something like illegal immigration can create all sorts of cottage industry jobs for government workers.

The idea that young people who are almost always in dire straights financially,were going to fund the lion´s share of Obamacare,is so idiotic you can get lockjaw trying to defend it.

The left loves keywords for suckers like "affordable" this or that.Affordable winds up with something being permanently financed with taxes and borrowed money but it sure reels in a voter.

If you hear the left announcing an affordable housing unit going up,what´s the first thing you think? They have a whole laundry list of excuses to keep people out they don´t want benefiting.

I´m all for having principled, conservative leaders, but I don´t hold out much hope such candidates would be treated fairly by the MSM. If Jesus Christ were to run today as a principled conservative the media would float thinly-veiled rumors that Jesus´s hanging around and traveling with a bunch of men indicate he is a closeted gay, while illogically (logic is not a MSM virtue) maintaining there is a seemingly scandalous relationship between Jesus and this Mary Magdalene woman. I dare say most principled, conservative leaders won´t run because of the unjustified abuse that would be heaped upon them. So we´re left with the usual political hacks like Christie and McConnell and Rove, et al.

If a Republican cured cancer or eliminated poverty from the earth he (or she) would still be destroyed by the MSM. That will never change, because the MSM loathes and fears actual leadership - in the right direction, that is.

The problem is that actual GOP leaders, the strong and charismatic ones, are feared and marginalised within the party (hello Sarah!!) because they threaten the "let´s get along with those nice, compassionate Democrats" status quo. God only knows how this awful situation can ever change...

OK. So we´ve had 5 years to find and groom a viable candidate. 5 YEARS. By now, we should have a cast of stellar characters. Tea Party? GOP so-called "establishment?" ANYBODY?

Maine Gov. Paul LePage is on a
welfare-reform crusade
Washington Post, by Niraj Chokshi    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 3/25/2014 11:51:33 AM     Post Reply
Maine’s tea party governor, reared in poverty, is on a mission to reform the state’s welfare system. Gov. Paul LePage rolled out a four-proposal package on Monday that will get committee hearings in the legislature Tuesday afternoon. The reforms, which mostly tighten restrictions around the program, are part of an ongoing crusade against what LePage has described as a bloated program. “Big, expensive welfare programs riddled with fraud and abuse threaten our future,” he said in his state of the state speech last month. “Too many Mainers are dependent on government handouts. Government dependency has not — and never will— create prosperity.”

On Friday, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorsed Matt Bevin, who is challenging Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in this May´s Kentucky Republican primary. Jenny Beth Martin, President of Tea Party Patriots and its Citizen Fund Super PAC, told the Washington Times, "Senator McConnell worked with the Obama Administration to raise taxes, has voted to raise the debt ceiling ten times, and has added pork barrel projects to further his own career instead of the needs of the American people." According to Ms. Martin, "That´s just not the kind of Senator Kentucky needs, and that´s another reason we are joining Tea Party members

One of the top Republican congressional staffers on the Benghazi investigation founded a consulting firm comprised of numerous former Clinton aides and a former CIA director accused of lying to Congress about the attack, Fox News reported Monday. J. Michael Allen is the founder and managing director of Beacon Global Strategies. He previously served as the staff director for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, chaired by GOP Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan and perhaps the most important panel investigating Benghazi. Allen´s new business partners at Beacon include: Philippe Reines, a dyed-in-the-wool Clinton hatchet man who worked for Clinton from 2002 until

Contrary to rumors that the Tea Party is in demise, if Republicans gain control of the Senate and retain control of the House after November, the Tea Party versus establishment battle may just be getting started. Statistician Nate Silver gave the GOP a 60% chance of taking back the Senate, and the Los Angeles Times noted that the Tea Party is getting ready for its next phase of promoting policies to lower the debt and mitigate or repeal Obamacare. Grassroots conservatives, having given the GOP its House majority back in 2010, felt snubbed when the establishment tried to blunt their

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

The National Republican Senatorial Committee is mad as hell, and it’s not going to take it anymore. This is the third election cycle in a row where incumbent Republicans and the NRSC’s hand-picked candidates have faced stiff primary challenges funded by Tea Party groups. No less than Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell is being primaried, and he’s made it clear what he plans to do to groups going after the national GOP. “I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” McConnell told the New York Times on March 8. “I don’t think they are going to have a single

Top Republican: U.S. needs 1 million

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive. Speaking at a Republican confab, he said that comprehensive immigration reform passed in the Senate and rejected by

Sen. Sessions to GOP: Appeal

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who has been a staunch supporter of American workers and against amnesty, argued that Republicans can frame Democrats as the party that favors elites at the expense of working Americans only if they make a clean break from amnesty legislation that lowers Americans´ wages and threatens their jobs. In an op-ed at National Review, Sessions wrote that after Mitt Romney "lost lower and middle-income voters by an astonishing margin," the GOP´s "brilliant consultant class" decided they would promote an amnesty agenda that would hurt these voters even more. "And what did the GOP’s brilliant consultant class conclude from

In his analysis of Florida Republican David Jolly´s special election win over Democrat Alex Sink on Tuesday, Republican establishment strategist Karl Rove failed to fully acknowledge the importance of both mobilizing the Republican base for this fall´s midterm elections and opposing amnesty. In an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal on Thursday, Rove wrote that Jolly´s win showed that "ObamaCare is a potent issue that hurts Democrats badly but isn´t sufficient by itself." He mentioned that there could be similar conditions that led 2010´s epic sweep, but he did not mention that the Tea Party fueled that wave. Without explicitly

Actions speak louder than words, and Congress’ actions over 113th session demonstrate a bipartisan unwillingness to get runaway federal spending under control. An early indication was Congress’s actions on the Hurricane Sandy bill, a bloated, $50 billion pork-barrel spending bill that was ostensibly intended to help northeastern states recover from the storm. Due to its dubious emergency designation, spending in the bill didn’t count against the spending caps put in place by the 2010 Budget Control Act. Consequently, opportunistic Members of Congress from both political parties seized the chance to attach tens of billions

On Neil Cavuto’s Thursday “Your World” broadcast on the Fox News Channel, conservative talker Mark Levin credited conservatives for pulling out a victory for Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) earlier this week despite the Republican establishment having gone out of its way to write Jolly off as a flawed candidate. “My point is what they did to him. They expected him to lose and so they had their whole positioning ready to go that this was just another Todd Akin, a conservative kook. He didn’t handle it right. And it turns out he won.

Hours after an on-air meltdown over immigration, Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) asked pro-amnesty business group ImmigrationWorksUSA to bail her out of criticism, prompting the group to send an email plea for phone calls and other support. “We need your help,” ImmigrationWorksUSA wrote to its email subscribers. “Rep. Renee Ellmers has been an outspoken advocate for immigration reform, and now she is being attacked by the right for her courageous stance. Please join us in speaking out in her defense. Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham called out the congresswoman this morning, and Breitbart TV piled on.”

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.
