Washington Post columnist Michael
Gerson lifts veil on Establishment
GOP´s Stockholm Syndrome

Washington Examiner, by Richard Manning

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/16/2014 2:41:57 AM

In what was clearly intended to be a snarky, hip rebuke of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Tea Party supporters, and other limited government advocates, the Washington Post´s domesticated, in-house “conservative” Michael Gerson inadvertently exposed his true colors. By so doing, he articulated the gaping divide in the Republican ranks. After a string of juvenile insults of various leaders of the limited government movement, Gerson bottom lined it, approvingly quoting from a recent National Affairs piece by Phillip Wallach and Justus Myers: Tea Partiers and other limited government advocates "seek to break with the past in a very different manner –

...repudiating 80 years of institutional development and reinventing American as a nation that rejects the substantive role for regulation or a social safety net.

Mr. Gerson could have made it much simpler. We are throwing off the shackles because we choose not to remain in slavery any longer.

This is why our country is in such a mess. We have a lot of Liberals (wolves in sheep´s clothing) who ran as Republicans but are really COMMUNISTS. That´s the sick part of all this. KNOW who you are voting for. Do the proper research BEFORE you vote.

Right on right on, right on #2.

And another word of advise Don´t rely solely on the media to inform you. Those days are long gone. If uncertain about what the candidate believes or is willing to stand for, then take a pass on voting. You won´t be fined and you might have a free conscience that you have done something good for your country. AVOID ANOTHER OBOMBA ´Once is enough"

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Let me finish tonight with a flashback. From the moment I heard about today´s shooting down of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine, I remember that 1983 shooting down of a Korean airliner over Soviet airspace (Korean Air Lines Flight 007). Back then, the Soviets, still in a Cold War mindset refused to even admit responsibility for the deliberate murder of 269 passengers including, U.S. Congressman Lawrence McDonald of Georgia who was aboard. Here´s how President Reagan reacted: REAGAN: What can we think of a regime that so broadly trumpets its vision of peace and global disarmament and yet so

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie blamed the Obama administration for the influx of immigrant children at the southern border, but didn´t rule out the prospect of accepting children in New Jersey on a case-by-case basis. "I have great empathy for that situation, but frankly the administration has done an awful job in securing our border, and they need to do that," Christie told reporters in Marion, Iowa, where he campaigned for incumbent Gov. Terry Branstad. "I don´t think ... it matters one bit what your Hispanic population is, as to whether or not you´re going to offer help and assistance," he continued.

Hillary Clinton says there’s “growing awareness” that Malaysia Airlines passenger plane was probably shot down by Russian insurgents — but argued that European leaders must “take the lead” on any action if that proves to be the case. Clinton made the comments about the doomed plane in a wide-ranging interview with TV host Charlie Rose set to air Thursday night. Portions of the taped interview were released ahead of airtime. “The questions I’d be asking is, No. 1, ‘Who could have shot it down? Who had the equipment?’” she said. “It’s obviously an antiaircraft missile.” The former secretary of state, who’s pondering a

Bloodied but unbowed after a largely unsuccessful primary season, the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) isn’t backing down in the final months of the midterms. The group on Thursday launched radio and television ads in Kansas highlighting questions over where Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) lives, making a final play in the group´s last remaining incumbent primary. It endorsed Roberts´s challenger, radiologist Milton Wolf, but he has thus far failed to pick up much traction against the senator. Both spots hit Roberts on the national debt and ObamaCare, and they feature a clip of Roberts commenting in a recent interview that, "Every time I

Pro-Russian separatists claimed to have found the ´black box´ - which records vital flight information - of the downed passenger airliner MH17. According to Russian news agency Interfax, First Deputy Prime Minister Andriy Purgin of the breakaway Donestsk Republic said the box will be transferred to Moscow for examination. ´Of course, we most likely will give them to the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC), to Moscow. They are highly qualified experts who will be able to accurately determine the cause of the disaster, even though it is so clear,´ he said. Whoever has the black box will be able to control what information is

A Malaysian Airlines passenger plane has been shot down on the Russian-Ukraine border in an ´act of terrorism´, killing all 295 people on board including around 100 children. The Boeing 777 aircraft exploded into flames at 33,000ft as it was hit by a sophisticated surface-to-air missile over territory near Donetsk held by pro-Russian rebels who the Ukrainian government says are backed by the Kremlin. Dutch authorities have said that at least six Britons, 154 Dutch and 27 Australians were on board the doomed plane, and it is feared that up to 23 Americans and four French passengers had been killed. American officials confirmed

Laughing rebels filmed the plane as it crashed, gleefully bragging ‘That was a blast – look at the smoke!’ while a fireball rose from the debris. One of the voices is believed to be militia commander Igor Strelkov, who then penned a triumphant war cry on Twitter, saying: ‘We warned you – do not fly in “our sky”.’ A sickening mobile phone video posted online shows a pall of black smoke billowing over the crash site as three rebels provide an excited commentary. The extraordinary footage – apparently filmed by the shooters themselves – charts the terrible final moments of the doomed airliner. Their

The airspace Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was flying in when it was shot down was not restricted, but airlines had been warned about the potential dangers, it has emerged. The International Transport Association said that an initial assessment revealed that the airspace the aircraft was travelling through was ´not subject to restrictions´. The Malaysian Airlines flight lost contact with aircraft control when it was flying over eastern Ukraine. Nine Britons and 27 Australians, according to Dutch authorities, and fears of up to 23 Americans are among the 295 that have lost their lives.

Ever since 9/11, it seems no tragedy or act of mass violence can go without a litany of Internet tin foil-types flapping their yaps about it on the Internet.

Geopolitics: Vladimir Putin blew through Latin America last week, handing out goodies to anti-U.S. regimes. But he insists he doesn´t want to reopen an old spy base in Cuba, which we find disingenuous. The scope of the Russian president´s visit took the U.S. by surprise. Instead of just attending the World Cup final and a summit of BRICS countries, Putin made an unexpected visit to Nicaragua, with talk of a military land base there. He then flew to Argentina, reportedly with promises for two nuclear plants, and on to Venezuela to offer a credit lifeline. Last but not least, Putin stopped in

Higher Education: A university student newspaper has editorialized against a required class teaching America´s founding documents. That should make the left happy. It wants to erase those records from our minds. A July 8 editorial in the University of South Carolina´s Daily Gamecock is critical of the "state law which requires students to learn about the U.S. founding documents, including the Constitution." "Most students don´t need" the class, the Gamecock argues, adding that "it´s almost insulting to require students to pay for a class" they took for free in high school.

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

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

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

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. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Rep. Tom Rice (R., S.C.) and constitutional law expert David Rivkin on Wednesday predicted victory in the lawsuit the House is launching against President Barack Obama. The House Rules Committee held a hearing on the proposed lawsuit, which is intended to prove the unconstitutionality of Obama’s unilateral delay of the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act. Witnesses at the hearing argued about whether the House has standing to sue the president to enforce the law. “I’m very optimistic that this lawsuit will succeed,” Rivkin said in an interview. “I certainly expect there to be a propaganda offensive to

He will: Tell you it’s great to be back in whatever town he’s in. Tell you to have a seat – twice. Appreciate the introduction. Love you back. Recommend building more roads and bridges.

According to documents obtained by the Washington Post, on top of that mammoth speaking fee, Clinton´s contract demands……the university provide "a presidential glass panel teleprompter and a qualified operator," that Clinton´s office have "final approval" of her introducer and the moderator of any question-and-answer session, as well as "the sets, backdrops, banners, scenery, logos, settings, etc," and that the

After sending a letter and questioning Attorney General Eric Holder twice and former FBI Director Robert Mueller once about the probe, Rep.

I urge the Department to move forward with this investigation in an expeditious and prudent manner."

A number of other celebs have given money to the Texas Victory Committee, a joint effort of the Davis campaign and the group Battleground Texas.

Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. by casually devoting mere moments to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, and then launching into jokes and his prepared remarks on the need to expand America´s transportation infrastructure. Twenty-three Americans are feared dead after the jetliner crashed in eastern Ukraine. Obama declared that ´it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy, but not before enthusiastically declaring that ´it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.´ ´Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border.

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on
