The Hill [DC], by Rachel Huggins

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 4/13/2014 10:44:00 AM

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund announced Saturday it has endorsed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for re-election in the May 20 Kentucky primary. "Mitch McConnell is a true champion of our Second Amendment rights, leading the fight against President Obama, Harry Reid and Michael Bloomberg´s anti-freedom agenda," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, in a statement. "Sen. McConnell’s steadfast support of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms and hunting heritage has earned him an A+ rating from the NRA.” Participating in a Second Amendment rally with the Sportsmen for Team Mitch

We always accuse the Democrats as being a party that depends on a collection of special interests. Well, the GOP has a similar problem. The NRA represents a large block of single issue voters. The Evangelicals represent a large block of single issue voters. Club for Growth represents a large block of single issue voters. It is no wonder that the Establishment block is able to control the party.

Somehow the Democrats have managed to unite their factions by demonizing Republicans so the Unions will vote for a green Democrat who opposes the Keystone Pipeline simply because he isn´t a Republican. Republicans don´t have this party loyalty and they lose elections.

I try to convince the single issue voter that the Democrat who might win because of refusing to vote is worse than the Republican they don´t like. That strategy seems to fail and I don´t understand it. Incremental change is the only way we will take this country back unless it gets so bad that war breaks out and then the outcome is likely to be far worse.

You´re right, #1. But, there is something to be achieved by widening our candidate base so that the long-entrenched get periodically uprooted for someone fresher. The problem is carefully considering those fresher names so we don´t get torpedoed. The newer name is not always a good replacement for the older one. And a Democrat is NEVER a good replacement for a Republican.

It´s a learning process and we´re learning.

If the NRA is going to endorse a candidate before the Republican Primary, I want a reason why one candidate is better than the other and I want it in the mailings I get from the NRA.

I´m thinking my membership dues could be spent better by sending the money to candidates I approve of myself and McConnell isn´t one of them.

Not exactly the case, #1. The NRA is certainly a single issue organization and they base their endorsements on that issue exclusively. Nothing else is taken into consideration. I´ve been a NRA member for over 30 years because of that issueI, but that doesn´t mean that I and thousands of other members are also single issue voters. This particular endorsement hasn´t changed my mind in the least. Bevan still has my support and vote in the upcoming primary.

#7 said it very well. The NRA is about guns and nothing else. McConnell may have a stellar gun vote record. I always take their recommendations into consideration before deciding, but they do not decide for me.
Their endorsement is but one factor in a long equation.

As an NRA Life Member, I was concerned about the NRA endorsement of Joe Manchin over John Raese for Senator. Raese was very pro-gun rights, and an NRA Member. After he was elected, Manchin had a run-in with the NRA about background checks, and even ran an ad that was critical of the NRA leadership.

I don´t know how they choose who they favor with an endorsement.

The establishment´s voice in the media, especially on FNC, always will see to it that those who challenge incumbents will NEVER measure up. We conservatives are learning this and realizing that supporting PROVEN nonleaders is the worst decision of all. The incumbent needs to be judged on the basis of accomplishments and promises kept. I wish the NRA would have at least waited a bit - no need to do it this early.

#1...I agree about the Republican voters who stay home because they can´t stand the Republican candidate. To me they are no better than the Liberal Marxist who vote FOR Democrats.

I sometimes wonder if they have IQ´s high enough to know what MAJORITY means. Sometimes we may have to take a mediocre candidate as opposed to a Liberal Marxst.

Like in KY, voting for Bevan is far better than reelecting McConnell or stay home and vote for left wing Marxist Democrat.

Yes they have a right to stay home and not vote but then do not expect my respect as a Patriot.

Bevin is a good man and a great candidate, much better than McConnell of K street loving fame. HE is part of the problem, NEVER will be part of a solution.

I have donated a small sum to Bevin.

If McConnell wins the primary I will also donate a small sum to his Democrap opponent.

And, if I was a Kentucky resident, I´d also vote for his opponent this November!

It´s the old thing about if you have cancer in a leg bone, you´ve really got to get rid of it. The leg bone that is!

I believe we will win enough seats in the Senate this November that McConnell can easily be the Sacrificial Old Goat and it will not have a negative impact.

These long time GOP RINO JerkWards simply must go.

I´ll change my mind if McConnell signs a binding agreement to resign from his leadership position and not accept any new leadership positions or even committee assignments.

Or he could simply resign from the Senate now and the governor of Kentucky could appoint Bevin to serve out McConnell´s term.

I´ve been an NRA member off and on for many many years. Most recently because of the BS over the Connecticut school shootings.

My membership was due last month but it won´t be renewed any time soon and maybe never.

There is no difference between Bevin and McConnell as far as 2nd Amendment issues are concerned.

The NRA should have waited until after the primary and then endorsed whoever won that election.

Bad move on their part. Now instead of writing a check to renew my membership, I´ll write another one for Bevin.

I wonder how many other NRA members are as ´Unpatriotic´ as me and will donate and/or vote for a Democrat just to get rid of someone like McConnell , The Bonner, Cantor, McCarthy and a few others.

I am not loyal to the GOP. I am loyal to the candidate willing to fight for the unborn. I am loyal to the candidate that will fight for traditional marriage. I am loyal to the candidate that will fight secure borders. If the GOP candidate will not fight for what I believe in then why vote for them? Just to make YOU happy? Losing an election is far better than losing my way with God. Nope, sorry to say, I don´t expect some of you on here to understand. Yes, I can take the brow beating and name calling from you as well. I like to win as much as the next guy. I just refuse to win at all costs.

A few years ago I read an article in the NRA´s monthly magazine in which the writer explained the organization´s approach to endorsements. According to him, when they have two guys with equally good records on gun rights they always go with the incumbent as a matter of principle, because by their reckoning there is no need to replace him, period.

The NRA is a terrific organization, but their single-minded focus as a one issue enterprise can occasionally be frustrating. As a pro-lifer, it irks me when they occasionally endorse a pro-abort with a good second amendment record.

I wish the NRA would understand that the right to keep and bear arms is not the "First Freedom", as they like to say, but a close first cousin to the right to life itself.

Having said that, I hope a few of the earlier posters will reconsider their stated decisions to withhold their contributions to the NRA. We all know what great work the NRA does in general elections. They are a very powerful ally, perhaps the only conservative-leaning outfit of whom the left is genuinely afraid.

Why Israel Is Winning This War
Weekly Standard, by Elliott Abrams    Original Article

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.

In a 15-minute telephone interview, the Republican Akin compared his downfall in the 2012 Missouri Senate race to that of former Sen.

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,

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

“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.
