Goodbye tea party, hello big tent
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

Really, Jennifer, cranks and insurgents? Why not call Tea Partiers terrorists, that seems to be where you are going. Also, please explain to me why it is beneficial to any tax payer to support incumbents who have done nothing but increased the power of government in our lives.

Frankly, you just don´t understand the Tea Party. It is not a group. It is an idea. Most of us don´t want to belong to any group. We have had enough of that kind of disappointment. We do, however, know and understand what is going on in Washington. It is a cesspool of corruption, greed and waste and we are sick and tired of funding it. You desperately need to marginalize the Tea Party. You call is names and infer we are not smart enough to know the nuances of politics. However, there is one thing we know beyond a shadow of a doubt. Washington is corrupt and men like McConnell and Boehner and all their fellow career politicians won´t fix it. It is not in their best interests. So tell me, Jennifer, when someone is robbing you, lying to your face, and not only ignores you, but believes you are too stupid to figure it out, why would you support them. Seems to me, your real beef with the "Tea Party" is that we have figured out what is going on and we intend to do something about it. We are not the lunatic fringe. We are ticked off tax payers who have had enough.

Wow, it sounds like Jennifer Rubin really hates the tea party. But news to her, the Tea Party is still alive and well. What happened in Neveda may not be called Tea Party but it was organized on the same principles.

Ted Cruz stated, many months ago, that he would not participate in the primaries. He believes it is up to the people of each district and each State to choose who they will send to Congress.

Is Jennifer really this clueless?

Like Obama sycophants, the Tea Party to these people is whatever they project it to be. The Tea Party is a phantom that exists somewhere on the edge of the Twilight Zone. They don´t know any Tea Party supporters nor do they wish to BUT they surely know what they are. In Ms. Rubin´s words, they are cranks and losers. They are like "gasp" a bunch of Sarah Palins. Inbred trailer trash who never made it past the 6th grade. I´m sorry Jennifer, your Berkeley roots are showing.

TEA Party means people like your mother, father, aunt, cousin, brother, the little old lady down the street who share the belief that we are Taxed Enough Already.
They believe in the Constitution and want everyone to obey existing law. (Hear that Obama, Holder, illegals).
I am tired of articles painting TEA party as extreme..is believing in the Constitution extreme?
But we have the extreme left wing communists who would grow government even larger, and control every aspect of the individual´s life. (they already have us by the short hairs with Healthcare)..and will soon move in to control water (oops already doing that in California to protect a smelt) and control our food supply (oops already doing that with beef cattle that graze).

Cannot understand why some ´conservatives´ pick on the Tea Party when they could denigrate all kinds of other groups - like elites or insiders.

If the Tea Parties (all zillion of them) want to be taken more seriously, then they should stop endorsing fringe candidates, like Bob Marshall in Virginia. Marshall believes that disabled children are God´s punishment for women who have abortions.

As usual: the Washington Post

As usual: ´Big Tent´ (read adopt Dem policies)
As usual: posted to protected the GOP leadership´s cooperation with the Dems

The big tent arrives when the national narrative is about principles of freedom and liberty, not into which group does the voter need to be classified as a member.

The GOP Establishment not only has bought into the division of the country into groups, but they are now helping to promote it.

#18 is posting a logical fallacy presupposing that the TP is not a big tent that welcomes ALL people, therefore must be bigots, cranks, racists and homophobes. It´s same as asking "What´s wrong with black people?" or "Why do you hate homosexuals?", or "Why do you want to poison the water?"

No one here nor on any other TP-affiliated site, article or rally has inferred that ALL are not welcome to participate in reigning in an out of control government.

#18: the TEA Party IS big tent! It is anti-corruption, cronyism and elitism. The establishment is against the TEA Party and has been for all of those things. They are entrenched and they don´t give a hang about their constituents.

"Big Tent" to Jennifer Rubin and the establishment she supports (until they get the nomination, that is) means everyone shuts up and thinks the same. It is the opposite of big tent.

The TP need not defend it´s principled positions and traditional values, especially to the brainless cranks who rail against it. BTW, what does the GOP have on offer for voters? A wind bag who presides over a solid blue State both bankrupt and hemorrhaging population plus another Bush nobody who most recently took the side of foreign illegals against that of our own people; an ultimate act of gross disloyalty to plain American citizens. That utterance de facto disqualifies this jackass from any political office. Anyone notice the shrieks of outrage from the R Est and the likes of Rubin about this pious ´act of love´ blather? Me neither.

I just do not understand this hatred of the Tea Party. All they´ve done is point out the collusion between the GOP and the Democrats to maintain their power at the expense of the people.

The elite of both parties are terrified that the message of the Tea Party will reach their voters, hence their constant description of them as cranks and losers.

Hey elite GOPers! Guess who the real losers are? Why don´t you look in the mirror? The next time you win a national election we´ll take you seriously. In the meantime you should be on your knees kissing the hands of the Tea Partiers who are keeping you from being totally irrelevant. Frankly, those of you who tow the Karl Rove/establishment GOP line are the real cranks and losers. Your time is done, now get out of our way.

Oh, and don´t let the screen door hit you on your way out.

Why Israel Is Winning This War
Weekly Standard, by Elliott Abrams    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/16/2014 5:37:32 AM     Post Reply
The reluctance of Hamas’s “military wing”—a misnomer for the more extreme elements of its extremist leadership—to accept the cease-fire designed by Egypt is, well, logical. Let’s admit it. They do not wish to accept defeat, and the Egyptian terms are a defeat for Hamas. By attacking Israel, what has Hamas wrought? Considerable damage was done to Gaza by Israeli air power, and Gazans will be picking up the pieces for months if not longer. But Hamas proved unable to kill one single Israeli with its hundreds of rockets, and all its special tricks—tunnels, longer-range rockets, a drone—also failed. Nor could

House Republicans are moving quickly to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, possibly holding votes as soon as next week. As Congress moves closer to the monthlong August recess, the speedy action sends a clear message to Senate Democrats: Take it or leave it. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and a group of top lawmakers working on the border crisis are set to file a bill that very closely mirrors the legislation crafted by Texas lawmakers Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar.

WASHINGTON • In one of his first interviews since his defeat in 2012, former Rep. Todd Akin told the Post-Dispatch on Monday that he has not contemplated running for office again, and instead has focused on closing his Senate campaign and writing a book that will be released today. In a 15-minute telephone interview, the Republican Akin compared his downfall in the 2012 Missouri Senate race to that of former Sen.

Mark Pryor, knocks on a voter´s door in Little Rock and discovers the potential GOP supporter owns a gun. In the world of voter outreach, it´s a potentially crucial piece of information; with the right pitch from a group like the National Rifle Association, for instance, it could prove decisive in getting that voter to pull the lever for Cotton.

Two of the larger social trends of our time — the growth of payday gambling and the legalization of marijuana — have two things in common: They are justified as the expansion of personal liberty, and they serve the interests of an expanding government. The ideological alliance behind these changes is among the strangest in U.S. politics. Libertarians seek to lift governmental restraints on consensual acts. State governments seek sources of revenue without the political inconvenience of requesting broad tax increases. Both find common ground in encouraging and exploiting the weaknesses and addictions of citizens. (And business interests and their lobbyists,

Republicans fired back today at Democrats’ plans to counter the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision that allows a contraception exclusion for closely-held companies with religious beliefs, saying they will propose a measure of their own. It was a dose of election year reality, dashing Democratic efforts at drawing bipartisan support for their plan. Sen.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Israel on Wednesday intensified air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement. It also told tens of thousands of residents to leave Gaza´s border areas ahead of more strikes. The Palestinian death toll in nine days of fighting rose to 204, with some 1,450 wounded, Palestinian health officials said. On the Israeli side, one man was killed and several people were wounded since the fighting erupted on July 8. The renewed bombings came a day after Israel initially

I took a look back at the current crisis of illegal Central American minors in the Weekly Standard article “Disorder at the border,” published in this past Friday in the new issue of the magazine. In retrospect, I think that the events of the preceding days fixed these issues in the public mind and culminated in President Obama’s notable address following his meeting in Dallas with Governor Perry. Obama had resisted the meeting with Perry, as he resisted visiting the border along the Rio Grande. In Dallas and Austin for big-buck fundraisers with his conspicuously wealthy friends, Obama was ultimately shamed

Conventional wisdom is clear that the next Congress has a considerable likelihood of being a Republican Congress. That same consensus also holds that if the GOP does indeed take control, the next two years will be marked by confrontation with the White House and even less actual legislative action than the present Congress has accomplished. To be fair, there is some compelling logic behind these conclusions. President Obama has clearly opted out of the role of governing through legislation. He has become the most defensive president since at least World War II, blaming the Congress not just for all the ills of the

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore.
