Ann Coulter: We have no choice
but to vote for these Republicans,
including the crap-ass ones

Hot Air, by Allahpundit

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/13/2014 11:44:32 AM

An electrifying midterm rallying cry on a slow summer news day. Boehner, incidentally, isn’t one of the crappy-asses, she says. She doesn’t name names there, but she’s been known to diverge from grassroots conservatives in these matters before. What would happen, though, if Boehner turned around and made a deal with Harry Reid on amnesty in September? One of the goals of Obama’s looming power grab over legalization is to scare Republican leaders with the thought that Latino voters will be so grateful, they’ll break even harder for Democrats in 2016. The only countermeasure, Dems would have you believe, is for

Comments:
I have disagreed with her a lot lately, but sadly she is right. Even the worst Republicans are better than a Democrat. The author states that he is "willing to boycott the next election if the GOP makes a bad deal on immigration..." It´s a horrific place to be but there is no way in flying you know what that I will sit out an election.

I agree. Sitting out the election is voting for a Dem.

Lamar Alexander out-spent Joe Carr by 7.6 million to 1.5 million to win the primary.

It breaks my heart, but I will have to buck up and vote for Alexander in the November election. We need to take the Senate back to replace Harry Reid and have control of both houses.

The longer we play the party game the worse it will get for everyone. Ann is wrong. Never, ever cast a vote for anyone you believe is unsuited to the job or whose views you do not agree with.

Vote for the person, not the party. When enough people do this, that parties will matter a lot less. There are conservative, independent and libertarian candidates you can and should consider.

Sadly, the advice to only vote for a person you agree with will likely insure that the Republic dies quickly. We are already close to the edge where laws and rules don´t matter. If the Democrats continue control we will all be poor and learning Chinese.

What if the GOP strikes a deal on amnesty? Well, your reps are in your district, make sure they hear you.

If we elect Rino republicans, Rinos will continue to run. If we want conservatives, we must stop electing Rinos, whatever the short term consequences.

I agree 100%. The goal has to be to defeat Demon-RATS before they can further destroy this nation at any cost!!!!!

I wish there were other options than voting for RINO´s, but there aren´t. Even a RINO is going to vote with the Republicans most of the time -- especially if the Republicans are in control.

Sitting on your hands is not an option if you don´t want to see the Demon-RATS finish the destruction of this nation. So suck it up, hold your nose, and crawl naked over broken glass and AIDS-infected needles (if necessary) to vote for all Republican candidates that you can in November!!!!!

Long-Tall lost me @ #Christie and then #Romney. Her criticism of Christian missionaries, though containing some important considerations, was a hasty generalization. She bagged true believers in the same poke with fashionably, christian narcissists.

However, she did make a great point not included in the Hot Air review. She said that we must elect Republicans because we can be sure the media, at least, won´t let them get away with corruption.

Coulter is promoting power over policy. That´s the typical Establishment Agenda. If the crap assed RINOS are always reelected, there will never be a reason to vote R, as they now are all the same.

My Nov ballot will have a number of empty boxes when I turn it in after casting my votes for only those of true Conservative values.

I AM NOT INSANE!; thus I will not hold my nose and vote for "the lesser of two evils", as has been advocated by many here. PLEASE READ RECENT HISTORY; obama ran in 2008 on the deficit because the Republicans spent so much money when they had power. Explain why this time will be different. It will not. "The lesser of two evils" is evil. Break the cycle this election. I will vote for Michelle Nunn because a republican senate boosts the dems chances in 2016.

I agree with #3, 6, and 9.

We do have a choice, Ann, and we will exercise that choice that belongs to each one of us, until the RINOs understand that winning with a liberal is not winning, no matter how you spin it ("we have no choice") No, Ann, you don´t tell us we don´t have a choice. Our votes are our only voice and we will use it.

Ann is saying that the average conservative American, whose only voice is his or her vote, does not have a "choice" on how to cast that vote.

As said above, if we keep electing RINOs, only RINOs will run and be elected. We voters have the choice to give the power to those to whom Ann and our Republican "leaders" would rather freeze out--decent conservative fighters who work for the people, not the system.

Ann Coulter is nothing more then a political elitist herself. She like the rest of the lemmings can do what they want with their vote. If they want to offer up their vote for empty promises so be it. That mentality only shows how cheap and shallow they are.

If you want my vote, you must earn it.
You can moan and whine all you want. Its all you have. My vote goes to people who are going to fix our problems, not those who will continue to spend our country into destruction.

By continuing to vote party line without any regard for the damage they will do, or continue to allow, YOU are part of the problem.

Remember Mississippi!
I will.

Of course she´s right. Doesn´t anyone out there know what it means to win the House and the Senate? If you have one more Member than the other party, you OWN the institution! You set the rules. You schedule the calendar. Rather than folding arms, pouting, lowering glum faces, and facing away, think beyond the RINO-realist divide for once and for the greater good.

If you don´t vote, it´s the same as voting for the Demon-RAT!!!!!

Either a Republican is going to win an election, or a Demon-RAT is going to win. Maybe a few very local elections might go to a third party, but major elections are going to either the Republican or Demon-RAT.

All of the conservatives saying they won´t vote for the Republican unless he is perfect, are just giving the Demon-RATS two more years to destroy this nation.

At this point, it´s either accept the reality and do ANYTHING possible to stop the Demon-RATS, or stick with your principals and watch the Demon-RATS further destroy this nation.

We must stop the Demon-RATS while Øvomit has two more years left in his reign of terror. If we control both houses of Congress -- even with a less than perfectly conservative Republican majority -- we can stop Øvomit from appointing lie-beral judicial activist judges and abusing his powers even more on things like illegal aliens.

Get control in 204, then work on getting good conservatives elected in 2016. But don´t allow the Demon-RATS to continue unabated by allowing them to keep power!!!

I´m with SSA (#16) and all the other Sell-Out/RINO/Squishes on this thread. The fact is that with the exception of a few electoral pockets there are just not enough hardcore conservative voters out there to elect their kind of candidates on their own. Any meaningful opposition to the Marxocrats must of necessity be a coalition of conservatives and so-called moderates.

There is just no way around that, and because the GOP establishment is often too myopic to see it is not an excuse for us to do the same.

And we don´t have the luxury of time, ladies and gentlemen. Implicit in the purist argument is the notion that if we hold out on principle and let the ´Rats destroy the country some great conservative renaissance will occur down the road. That´s just fantasy, IMO. No comeback will be possible when the Left gets an iron grip on all the institutions and the permanent government. In that event elections will be meaningless, and renegade courts and commissars will regulate every aspect of our lives. Indeed, they will determine who lives and dies.

Vote Republican, por favor.

Sadly I have to agree 100% with #16. We do not have choice this time. Harry Reid and Pelosi are just not in normal mental state. Democrats, not matter what they say while campaigning, will vote in lockstep. Not one single Democrat voted against Obamacare.

I do not always agree with Ann Coulter. But this time she is right. Things have totally gotten out of hand. The border situation poses an enormous threat to us all. We need to remove Harry Reid.

Rep. Tim Bishop (D., N.Y.) warned during a recent speech that up to 40 radicalized U.S. citizens who have fought alongside the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL or ISIS) have already returned to the United States, where they could pose a terrorist threat. Bishop claims that of the 100 or so Americans who have traveled to the Middle East to join ISIL’s ranks, some 40 have returned and are currently being surveilled by the FBI, according to his remarks, which were filmed and uploaded to YouTube last week. “One of the concerns is the number of U.S. citizens who have

Bill Ayers, according to the right, is Barack Obama’s terrorist trainer and ghostwriter. Upon further inspection, Ayers is nothing quite as dramatic or fearsome. While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats.

But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait.

But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show. The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago
