RNC Refuses to Censure Henry Barbour
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:JoElla Bee, 8/7/2014 6:51:28 PM

Yesterday the Republican National Committee, meeting in Chicago for its summer gathering, refused even to hear two resolutions dealing with the censure of Mississippi Republican National Committeeman Henry Barbour. Barbour has admitted to playing a role (as reported here by NRO’s Eliana Johnson) in funding a controversial ad that has been widely criticized for its racial content. Johnson reported that Barbour was “not distancing himself from the inflammatory ads.” The resolutions were being pushed by Missouri Republican State Chairman Ed Martin. Today the RNC is having a members-only breakfast in which a discussion of the issue is supposed to be

This type of thing will cost the GOP a few million votes in both 14 and 16.

Is protecting Barbour worth one close loss of a senate seat because angry conservatives have had ENOUGH.

Barbour should show some gonads and resign instead of doing even more damage than he has already.

Disclaimer: I left the GOP for this reason and register as an independent.

This is entirely what is wrong with the GOP. There are no longer any principles by which they live. There is no difference between them and the dems. None!

Seemingly testimony that there is little difference anymore between "R´s" and "D´s". Here in KAnsas THE REPUBLICAN PARTY RAN extra candidates in our Senate Race to dilute the vote and give Sen. Pat Robertson another term in the Senate. [ His main residence is in Virginia, and he has "a friend´s sofa in Kansas".] They siphoned off over 9 % of the vote ( about Robertson´s Margin of winning) to defeat Dr. Wolf ( TEA Party Candidate) . 42 years in the Senate: Robertson need to retire to Virginia and write a book.

I contacted the National Committeeman from Texas about this situation this morning and invited him to meet with our Tea Party and I hope several others will join us. He agreed to have the meeting within the hour. I expect he takes us seriously. I copied the National Committeewoman at the same time. It would not be as easy for her to meet with us. If the Tea Parties respond and this grows, the State Chairman and elected officials will also be invited. We´ll see.

We absolutely need every R to take back the Senate. After Harry Reid is gone, its time to start the RINO eradication program. Most RINOs don´t realize that they have been protected by the press. When the GOP is in control, they are going to savage any GOP Congressman that makes a silly remark. Right now they are considered swing votes. Once in the majority they will be targets. McCain in particular is going to be surprised.

They, the RNC, know not what their selfish personal desires have done to those of us in the base. Personally, I´m disgusted and feel that there is nothing I can do and nothing they will do to fix the problems that this nations faces. Will they secure the borders, will they cut the deficit, will they shrink the government by cutting waste, fraud, abuse, unproductive workers, etc......? NO, these people won´t. Will they nominate a presidential candidate we can trust to do the aforementioned....? NO, these people won´t Will they eliminate open primaries that defeat the best and brightest? NO, these people won´t? Then, why the hell should any of us vote for them, only to be disappointed all over again. Isn´t 50 years of devotion enough to teach me that, other than Reagan, we´ve had our desired ignored?

Great! Another national election where I get to hold my nose and pull the R lever. While I can´t get very excited about it , this is probably the last hope of saving this country. But if we do control both houses, that´s when the REAL work begins. Just seeing McCain resign in a fit of maverick anger would be worth it.

Cleveland - James Traficant, the colorful Ohio politician whose conviction for taking bribes and kickbacks made him only the second person to be expelled from Congress since the Civil War, died Saturday. He was 73. Traficant was seriously injured Tuesday after a vintage tractor flipped over on him as he tried to park it inside a barn on the family farm near Youngstown. He died four days later in a Youngstown hospital, said Dave Betras, chairman of the Mahoning County Democratic Party. The Democrat´s expulsion from Congress in 2002 came three months after a federal jury in Cleveland convicted him.

DENVER - Hundreds of high school students in Colorado´s second-largest school district staged a walkout on Wednesday to protest proposed changes to a history curriculum that would stress patriotism and discourage civil disobedience. Student protesters marched outside schools waving placards bearing slogans such as: "My School, My Education, My Voice!" and "Don´t Make History a Mystery!" The demonstrations marked the third straight day of protests at six high schools in Jefferson County, a suburban Denver school district of 84,000 students. The controversy stems from proposed changes to an advanced placement history curriculum proposed by a school board member who was

Marine Corps veterans tired of seeing fellow Marine Andrew Tahmooressi stuck in Mexican prison are traveling nearly 300 miles by foot to Washington, D.C., to tell President Obama to do whatever he has to do to get Mexico “to turn our Marine loose.” Marine Corps veteran Terry Sharpe is 63 years old and began walking the 287 miles from his home in Summerfield, North Carolina, to Washington, D.C., two weeks ago to raise awareness about Tahmooressi, who has been in a Mexican prison since March. “I just got tired of nothing being done,” Sharpe told the Washington Free Beacon on

Gowdy, who has accused the Obama administration of engaging in a “systematic effort” to hide documents relating to the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, dismissed attempts by Democrats to portray the Select Committee as a politically-motivated witch hunt aimed at tarnishing the record of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: To those who believe it is time to move on, to those who believe that there is nothing left to discover, that all the questions have

Media seeks camera
coverage of Arias retrial

PHOENIX — Video footage of Jodi Arias' Sept. 29 penalty phase retrial should be allowed to be broadcast 30 minutes after the end of each day's proceedings to afford the public their constitutional right to witness criminal trials, a media lawyer argued Monday. Arias was convicted of murder last year in the 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend at his suburban Phoenix home, but jurors couldn't decide on her sentence. The retrial will determine if she gets the death penalty or life in prison. Arias' first trial was broadcast live, but Judge Sherry Stephens denied that right this time around, ruling that no footage could be broadcast until after the verdict.

Democrats’ Push to Criminalize Dissent

Dissent is the highest form of patriotism. Dissent is the lowest form of crime. If you are a drone in the hive of the Left, it is possible — easy, in fact — to believe both of those things at the same time. Free speech just won an important victory in a federal courtroom, though it is shameful that the case ever even had to go to court. Ohio had enacted a plainly unconstitutional law that empowered a government panel to determine whether criticisms offered in political advertisements were sufficiently true to be permitted in the public discourse. Those who

I suppose this is today’s update on the War on Women, but it once again seems to be coming from the opposite side of the aisle than you’d expect if you’re watching cable news. Our story comes to us from New York’s 21st congressional district, also locally known as “the North country” for its rural, mountainous nature. Many long time election fans will better remember it as it was known before the last census redistricting when it was NY-23 and the site of the 2009 special election debacle featuring Dede Scozzafava.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas´ highest court ordered the immediate removal of a judge on Thursday for disclosing confidential details about an adoption involving actress Charlize Theron´s child and making off-color remarks in an online forum. The state Supreme Court accepted the lifetime ban that was agreed to by Faulkner County Circuit Judge Mike Maggio and the Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission. But the court rejected the panel´s recommendation that he be suspended with pay until his term expires at the end of 2014, and instead ordered his immediate removal from the bench.

LAKE WYLIE, S.C. – An elderly couple, who had been together for more than 60 years, was found dead inside their home. Investigators say Dave Molter died trying to give his wife, Corrine, CPR; giving his wife his last breath. Brandy Williams broke down, talking about losing a couple she called best friends. “Just wonderful people. I’ve never met anybody like that in my life,” said Williams. Williams was the caregiver for Dave and Corrine Molter. Corrine had advanced Alzheimer’s and Dave waited on her hand and foot. “Just being there and seeing it with my own eyes, it’s like

A “Fox & Friends” segment Monday morning on the video of running back Ray Rice knocking unconscious his then-fiancée inside a casino elevator took a bizarre twist when the hosts made light of the incident with a series of tasteless jokes. After reading serious tweets and emails sent from viewers, the Fox News hosts, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, segued into other celebrity-involved incidents of domestic violence. The men condemned both Rice’s now-wife, Janay Palmer, and singer Rihanna for “sending a terrible message” by staying with men who had abused them. And the men, sitting on either side of co-host

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
