A Beat-up, Exhausted, and
Terrified Republican Establishment

PJ Media, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/3/2014 8:25:12 AM

On almost every contemporary issue there is a populist, middle-class argument to be made against elite liberalism. Yet the Republican class in charge seems ossified in its inability to make a counter-argument for the middle class. Never has the liberal agenda been so vulnerable, a logical development when bad ideas have had five years to prove themselves as very bad ideas. When Obama is all done he will have taken high presidential popularity ratings, a supermajority in the Senate, and a large margin in the House and lost them all — if only the Republicans can make an adequate case

Bravo, VDH! Unfortunately, no one in the GOP establishment, who hold the party in an iron grip, will pay any attention to this insightful article. In the end, they are running a private social club for a few thousand of "The People Who Matter." They then graciously invite the rest of us to vote for them every other November. Phooey.

(A Registered Republican since 1963.)

DVH makes it look pretty easy to explain what we stand for. Why have Republicans in the House and the Senate failed to identify spokesmen who can carry a message. McConnell and Boehner may our may not be good guys, but the fact that they cannot take on the poorly performing leftist, demonstrate we need someone who can. Both leaders need to go back to the minor leagues. Like Palin, Cruz and Lee or not, they are at least are taking the fight to the enemy.

So how hard is it for a Republican simply to say, “I oppose illegal immigration because (1) it is illegal.
Does anyone really need to go further???

VDH is right on the mark.

The hard truth behind the Republican Establishment is that they are double agents working for the progressives to keep conservatives from actually reducing the size and scope of government.

Better to lose with a RINO and suffer "four more years" of the democrats controlling the tax loot pipeline than to risk having an actual conservative blow it up and reduce the flow to what would be needed by a constitutional government.

The biggest problem for the Republicans is that they can´t get their message out. The liberal press either won´t write it or they write their ´version´ of the Repubs points. Then the House writes and passes the initiatives and Harry Reid won´t even look at them. If VDH knows all the answers, why isn´t he running for office and then running the world? It´s easy criticizing when you don´t have to prove how good you are.

Rather then become associated with real middle class concerns the establishment Republican leadership seems bent on pushing through some sort of precipitous amnesty plan that would eventually hand the liberal Democrats tens of million of eventual new foreign born voters in the years ahead along with discombobulating the American middle and working classes by facilitating to flooding of the legal US job market with a mass of cheap foreign labor that is bound, in accordance with labor market laws of supply and demand, to displace a huge number of American workers as employers naturally move to hire newly legalized cheap foreign labor over higher cost American workers. When all the adverse effects of massive in-sourcing of those foreign workers become evident to American workers and a big political backlash occurs you can bet that the liberal Democrats will be out there blaming the Republicans for that situation claiming that it was the Republican bottom line for supporting immigration reform. That is sure to knock out a lot of potential Republican votes from middle class and working class Americans who will have to compete against cheap foreign labor for just about every scarce job out there.

The Washington GOP leadership has only itself to blame. Below them in the ranks are some good people, just not enough.

To me Washington has three parties. First, there are the Democrats who unite at every crisis. Second, the GOP leadership which is concerned only with staying in office and otherwise are content to let the Democrats win every time. The last faction is the GOP Conservatives who are badly outnumbered and usually lower in committee seniority.

I exclude the GOP at state levels because that is too broad a topic.

The Democrats are competent bums and scoundrels. There really enjoy screwing others and intend to keep on doing it.

In contrast, the GOP leadership is primarily driven by egos not goals. They like the prestige and perks of being called leaders.

"See me" they say. "I´m so important, I understand so much. That really is rain." The media strokes these useful idiots. They are pet rats.

The Conservatives are simply too few. Will that change?

This situation is history repeating itself!!! Remember? ...The disconnect between the GOP ´establishment,´ and the GOP voters was the same during the Carter malaise doldrums and Iran crisis of the late 1970s. President Reagan´s election turned that dismal lefty experimental ordeal TOTALLY around!!!! Respect for the American people, optimism, patriotism and the pursuit of happiness returned. In fact, the entire world was a better place for years to come as socialism suddenly fell flat around the planet.

The world again desperately needs honorable, principled leadership of goodwill like that of Pres. Reagan & Margaret Thatcher.

Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying
Townhall, by Larry Elder    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/18/2014 9:10:04 AM     Post Reply
If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives. Why would the government-hating "civil rights" leader cooperate with the feds?

The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage. Fair enough. These conflicts will play out during the primaries in 2016, and we´ll discover whether they are serious fault lines or merely squabbles. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well. Little fissures are snaking through the crust, perhaps reflecting tectonic movement beneath. The president´s approval rating has

to judgment on Obamacare
Los Angeles Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/17/2014 9:28:37 AM     Post Reply
The first open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act ended this week with roughly 7.5 million people obtaining policies through the new state insurance exchanges, including more than 1.3 million at Covered California. That´s an amazing and welcome result, considering how badly many of the exchanges stumbled when sign-ups began in October. Nevertheless, it´s far too early to judge the success or failure of the healthcare law, given that key tests of the program´s sustainability have yet to be passed. Almost all of the exchanges got off to a wretched start, particularly the federally managed ones that shared a mind-bogglingly

Obamacare hasn´t "won"—but it´s making a pretty impressive run. The headlines about the Affordable Care Act have turned positive lately, and they´re starting to pile up. The most dire predictions from the law´s critics simply haven´t panned out, and now Democrats are headed into another big health care fight—the confirmation of a new Health and Human Services secretary—with stronger real-world evidence than they´ve had before. There´s important information we still don´t have about enrollment, and big risks loom on the horizon. Things could change. But right now, the tide seems to be turning in the White House´s favor. Narratives feed on themselves, and

War on women alert: One of the most forceful fighters against misogyny in the modern era is under attack. Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of women´s oppression under Islamic law. She´s blasted arranged marriage, legally sanctioned domestic violence, genital mutilation, and the killing of adulteresses and rape victims. Despite being a supporter of abortion rights, an atheist, and an advocate of gay and women´s rights, she is despised by many who claim to be defenders of women´s rights. Over the years, they have worked to delegitimize her in the hopes that she will be silenced.

Well, it´s Easter time, and that means that the mainstream media and publishing houses can be counted upon to issue de-bunking attacks on orthodox Christianity. The best-publicized of these is Bart Ehrman´s How Jesus Became God. Many by now know at least the outlines of Ehrman´s biography: once a devout Bible-believing evangelical Christian, trained at Wheaton College, the alma mater of Billy Graham, he saw the light and became an agnostic scholar and is now on a mission to undermine the fundamental assumptions of Christianity.In this most recent tome, Ehrman lays out what is actually a very old thesis, going back

Obama shouldn´t embrace
race-rousing Sharpton
Chicago Tribune, by John Kass    Original Article

It was disappointing the other day to see President Barack Obama embracing the vulgar race hustler Al Sharpton. President Obama once eloquently confronted race in a memorable speech in Philadelphia in 2008. That speech was remarkable and honest and, to borrow a favorite word of the political left that still fawns over him, it was nuanced. But there was nothing particularly remarkable about Obama standing next to the preening Sharpton, speaking in New York to his National Action Network. Except that Obama expertly used a message of victimization to begin energizing black voters, who provide the electoral foundation for the Democratic Party.

Meet Sylvia Burwell, the

The replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the Secretary of Health and Human Services has been portrayed by the legacy “news” media as a new lease on life for Obamacare. The party line is that Sebelius was mortally wounded by GOP exploitation of a single uncharacteristic mistake—the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov—while Burwell is a brilliant Beltway veteran unsullied by controversy and possessing the very administrative skills needed to save Obama’s “signature domestic achievement.” (snip) This tale fails to conform to the facts, however.

Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

Obamacare:They Shoot Horses

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching.

They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
