Republican leaders must
keep Tea Party on the run

Fox News, by Juan Williams

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/19/2014 5:23:06 PM

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-Ky.) are now in position to end the Tea Party’s death grip on the Republican Party’s political future. Last week, Boehner and McConnell faced down the Tea Party’s threat to cripple the government when they supported raising the nation’s debt ceiling. That move prevented GOP political suicide. If the nation’s credit rating, stocks and the recovery went down the sewer because of Republicans’ refusal to raise the debt ceiling, the GOP’s chances in the midterm elections would have been severely damaged. Having successfully defied the Tea Party on the debt ceiling, now

Comments:
There is something inherently wrong with someone who constantly maligns the Tea Party. They are the only ones standing in the way of a tyrannical government that the Republican establishment is aiding and abetting. The fool Juan states: "With support from Boehner, this effort to move beyond Tea Party paralysis on immigration becomes a winner for Republicans." Really Juan? That sure will be a winner. s/o

Thank you, Mr. Williams, for showing us all what a p.o.s. you are. You´re someone who does NOT believe in the rule of law, the Constitution, individual rights, or our system of government. Instead, you believe in crony capitalism and enslaving the people.

You are what is wrong with the Republican party.

None of them get it. We don´t want either party. The Repubs can´t win without us. Dems have crossed the line. Too many Repubs have too.

Both parties are due for a rude awakening.

Unfortunately, I think it´s going to get uglier before it gets better. The Tea Party patriots need to hold fast to their principles and to be strong in this war of ideas and words. They need to be as courageous as the original patriots. We need modern day the Sons and Daughters of Liberty in the fight against the slide into totalitarianism.

Cruz would be even more popular without the constant media attacks and rhinos (McCain Wacko Bird comment and McConnell want to punch the Tea Party in the nose, a few Lucianne posters) attacks.

Rand Paul for cutting disabled veterans pay and wanting amnesty should be far behind Cruz if it were not for the above mentioned enablers.

To Boehner and McConnell and Cantor I say lead, follow or get out of the way..I wouldn´t want you crushed in the stampede to the polls. s/
If the TEA party is considered extreme because they believe in the Constitution, the Rule of Law, smaller government and less taxes, what does that make THEM?
A Convention of the States is the only peaceful option we have. Let our State Legislatures unite and fight it out and take back the power..

You gotta love it when Dems give Repubs advice. Especially when the Repub elite take it. Now let me see if I remember, its the Nasty Brutes in the Tea Party who gave the House to the Republicans so they could defeat the policies of this destructive President. These are the folks that the Repubs want drummed out of their party. Oh wait a moment its the Tea Party´s party too.

Now if the Dems would only keep their fringe elements on the run - except that would constitute just about the whole party.

Btw, if Dumbo Juan Williams is for it - it must not be good advice for the GOP. Not much bouncing around inside that quota-hired brain except the fuzzy-wuzzies and sundry emotional baggage.

Juan, the establishment runs, the Tea Party is standing up and demanding our representatives represent us. We don´t want a new job-killing rule every 3 hours. We don´t want the government to have a blank check for spending. We don´t want Obamacare canceling insurance policies we like, driving up costs, shifting full time employees to part time, or rationing the health care available to us. Despite his promises, the Obama has a full time team figuring out new ways to tax us.

What a misguided fool. Juan you are as dumb as a box of rocks. The Tea Party is trying to prevent the GOP from committing political suicide. Boehner and McConnell ARE the problem and they are the ones pushing life long party conservatives, like ME, out of the Party because of the direction these old fools are taking the party and the country. Someone has to stop this runaway spending borrowed money because guess what, it has to be repaid plus interest. They worry about the nations credit ratings, stock market values, and the value of the dollar now? Just wait and it will all be completely destroyed and worth nothing more than the paper it was printed on. Then they will have some real worrying to do. So hey Juan, have some more kool aid ok, you are a very thirsty man. Real headline should be: Tea Party has RINO Republican Leaders on the run. The day of reckoning in coming and election day November 2014 can´t get here fast enough.

Police Unit That Spied
on Muslims Is Disbanded
New York Times, by Matt Apuzzo & Joseph Goldstein    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/15/2014 7:23:08 PM     Post Reply
The New York Police Department has abandoned a secretive program that dispatched plainclothes detectives into Muslim neighborhoods to eavesdrop on conversations and built detailed files on where people ate, prayed and shopped, the department said. The decision by the nation’s largest police force to shutter the surveillance program represents the first sign that William J. Bratton, the department’s new commissioner, is backing away from some of the post-9/11 intelligence-gathering practices of his predecessor. The move comes as the federal government reconsiders and re-evaluates some of its post-9/11 policies, including the National Security Agency’s bulk data collection.

Perino Dismisses Conspiracies about Harry

Fox News Channel’s The Five co-host Dana Perino was strongly critical of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) who she said was actively inflaming the tense standoff between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government over his use of public lands. However, she agreed with her co-hosts who said that taking Bundy’s side in this fight was not the right battle to wage. She added that “wishful thinking” is among conservatives’ “worst enemies.” “You’ve got to find candidates who can win and then you don’t have to worry about Harry Reid,” said co-host Greg Gutfeld after lamenting the GOP’s

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

A fascinating article by Francis Wilkinson appeared in Bloomberg View last week (h/t Instapundit). Wilkinson detailed the fact that income inequality between whites and blacks is worse in leftist cities: Minneapolis-St. Paul. San Francisco. Chicago. Even Madison, Wisconsin. If you are politically liberal and value relatively high levels of income equality, you might live in one of these quintessentially liberal U.S. cities. Yet all four lurk in the bottom half of the 2014 National Urban League’s State of Black America report on income inequality between blacks and whites. Among the many places where black-white income is less skewed are Phoenix, Arizona,

The government says it has stopped one of its illegal activities, according to the Washington Post. The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to the Social Security agency. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far

A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the Obama administration´s standards for curbing mercury and toxic air pollution from power plants. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected a challenge to the rule, which was completed by the Environmental Protection Agency in 2011 and set the first national limits on air pollution emitted by coal and oil-fired power plants, specifically mercury, arsenic and acid gases. {mosads]Stallion Energy and other industry groups challenged the rule on the grounds that the EPA did not provide proper notice or time to comment on a study conducted by the agency.

On Tax Day, the Republican National Committee announced it is suing the IRS for stonewalling Freedom of Information Act request for documents about the tax agency´s politicized scrutiny of conservative and Tea Party groups. The RNC filed the request on May 21, 2013, in an attempt to expose the documents and emails surrounding agency’s process in handling applications of non-profit organizations such as conservative and Tea Party groups. “We’re filing this suit because the Obama administration has a responsibility to be transparent and accountable to the American people.

Obama statement recognizes ´tragedy´

Here are a few things missing from President Obama´s statement Tuesday marking the anniversary of the 2013 terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon: • The word "terrorism." • The word "bombing." • The fact that the bombers were motivated by Islamist extremist beliefs. No, in his mind this was a "tragedy" that just somehow happened and from which we need to recover, not a criminal act that may have been preventable. Here´s the statement, in full: A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon. Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded. Today, we remember Krystle Campbell

A new Citizens United Political Victory Fund poll shows that Republican Arizona voters have had it with Sen. John McCain, even though the senator has signaled his intentions to run for a sixth term in 2016. According to the poll, 64.2 percent of likely GOP primary voters said that they are ready for someone new to take the job and only 29.3 percent signaled a willingness to re-elect McCain. The poll also shows that McCain loses to other potential Arizona Repubican candidates in a primary. McCain loses to Gov. Jan Brewer 47.7 percent to 29 percent and to Rep. Matt Salmon 48.2 percent

Last week, a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee held a hearing provocatively titled “Is Al-Qaeda Winning?” The answers that the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade received were profoundly unsettling. Former Senator Joseph Lieberman (I–Conn.) testified that Syria had become a key focal point of al-Qaeda’s efforts. He noted that there are more foreign militants fighting in Syria today than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the past 10 years: “Put very bluntly, Syria has become the most dangerous terrorist sanctuary in the world today—and the United States has not coherent or credible policy for dealing with it.”

GOP, Don´t Be Comforted

As horrible as Kathleen Sebelius has been as this nation´s health and human services secretary, she has been exactly who President Barack Obama wanted her to be. This was no rogue incompetent tinkering with America´s health care. This was one of Obama´s chief lieutenants, one who was doing his bidding every step of that treacherous road they traveled together. Don´t get me wrong; Sebelius was inexcusably bad — arrogant, defiant, uncompassionate, dogmatic and unrepentant. Obama cashiered her only because it was time to deflect blame from himself and change the channel. There is nothing incompatible between assigning major blame to Sebelius for all

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
