As the party flounders because its leaders still have not recovered from the 2016 election. Just like the Democrats, Republican leaders cannot believe that we really elected Trump president. The Republican rank-and-file need to fill the void, and re-set the party´s principles. My proposal is simple. Republicans should stand up for the individual, which means they should stand for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.Not equality and fraternity. Those are French things -- Marxist -- that do not respect the individual. Oh, of course we are for equal rights. Women have the same rights as men. People of the various colors have the
McCain, Flake, Collins, Graham, Sasse are destroying the party not Trump. Show me someone who does not support their leader & I will show a dishonest person. DC is the swamp, The fake republicans are the sewer.
FTA "The United States of America is the largest Christian nation in the world. Christians founded it. I believe that is why it was and still is the greatest land of all." Amen!
But that is the politically incorrect thing to say let alone to put in print. Our strength is our freedom, God given freedom of the individual not politically correct BS Marxisms like diversity or inclusion crap pushed by the Democrats.
As I mentioned in another article .. progressivism has certainly brought the world and America to new lows which we may never recover from. Especially when you consider that republicans in general have adopted progressivism as their ´guiding light´ for the future of America. Which in part means ´screw the voters´ as they are too stupid to know the difference. I wonder ... is this true? I suspect they may have a point.
The progressives (R) hold all the Chairmanships and all the power. And they spend millions to prevent conservatives (like judge Moore) from getting elected. And prevent the ones who do get elected from ascending to the Chairmanships thus preventing them from having much of a voice. THAT is why we rarely hear from them. They are gagged and bound in every way possible by the ´progressives´.
And this is what the republican voters approve of now? Or are too many of them just not interested in paying any attention? Too busy watching democrat propaganda on so called TV ´news´? I think I know the answer.
There are the RINOs who think THEY run the party, and listen only to the money people, and then there are the REST of US who are their mortal enemies for trying to end their corrupt shell game.
They would prefer to work with demonrat/socialist globalists even if it means we creep further into debt and socialism than to represent their distrcts back home.
Those who get in the way are marginalized because unless the RINOs retire or die in office, they talk like conservatives to get re-elected, and let those who challenge them in the primaries beat up on each other before they open their war chests of re-election money gathered from the rich who want favors and from lobbyists.
A perfect example are the two Texas Senators, Ted Cruz and John Cornyn, Yertle´s right-hand man.
FTA: "We believe the government should protect our right to pursue happiness, but there is no guarantee of happiness."
Uh, Don, the definition of the term "happiness" in 1776 was "prosperity, thriving, wellbeing". In that context at the time of the Declaration, every person has the right to PURSUE prosperity, etc. Not have flowers, balloons and cake on one´s birthday - those are indeed not guaranteed.
That said, a growing majority of Americans do not want true liberty anymore. It requires too much of them to consider and make sound, responsible decisions when government programs, regulations and laws do the thinking for them. It´s one thing to take FICA taxes from payroll for Medicare and Social Security, but to actually manage one´s financial future with such things as budgeting for 401k´s or IRA´s are complicated.
Pick an issue, any issue, and the "winning formula" for politicians is government regulation or control. What is GOPCare (formerly Obamacare)? No repeal...REPLACE! Affordability issue again solved!
Liberty has been replaced by libertine in American social and political thinking.
“prosperity, thriving and wellbeing” are not guaranteed either.
Whether in 1776 or today, the keyword was always “pursuit”. Not entitlement. Not guarantee. Ironically Barack Obama was one who tried to pretzel that into entitlement. Equality of outcome. He had it all wrong - or tried to make it all wrong.
Equality of opportunity. The opportunity to pursue one’s own prosperity, thriving and wellbeing”. Not equality of outcome.
The founders or Surber thinking about birthday cake? I don’t believe so.
Nikki Haley, America´s ambassador to the United Nations, suggested that the United States´ participation in February´s Winter Olympics in South Korea remains up in the air, while the White House said Thursday that "no official decision has been made" regarding the games. Haley was initially asked Wednesday night on Fox News whether sending American athletes was a "done deal" given the tensions in the region, and responded that the situation is an "open question." "I have not heard anything about that," she added, "but I do know in the talks that we have — whether it´s Jerusalem or North Korea — it´s
The Republican establishment group fronted by failed presidential candidate Evan McMullin — which has spent $500,000 against populist conservative Judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race — supports a constant flow of Middle East migration to the United States. McMullin’s “Stand Up Republic” has spent half a million dollars attempting to help elect Moore’s opponent in the Alabama Senate race, pro-open borders Democrat candidate Doug Jones, as Breitbart News reported. The GOP establishment organization, though, is vastly at odds with Alabama voters, opposing President Trump’s travel ban, which blocks foreign nationals from a handful of countries that export terrorism,
Birmingham, ALABAMA — Despite efforts by Democratic senatorial candidate Doug Jones to pass himself off as a moderate, the politician has been deeply tied to radical groups financed by billionaire George Soros and has led efforts on behalf of those groups seeking to enact far-left, transformational policies. Jones’s personal website has urged supporters to get involved with Soros-financed far-left groups and he took leadership positions in numerous Soros-financed activist projects, including one seeking to fundamentally remake the U.S. criminal justice system into one that pushes progressive policies. He also took a significant role in an effort by a far-left legal
By now everyone is likely aware of the Fake News story run by CNN on Friday surrounding an email received by Donald Trump Jr. The email was part of the investigative evidence shared with the House Intelligence committee; and later leaked from within that committee to CNN – thereby initiating the false reporting on the content. The central issue in the CNN story was the date of an email. It was leaked from within the committee, and later reported by CNN, that the date was “September 4th, 2016”; a date convenient for a collusion narrative between Trump Jr and WikiLeaks.
Facebook warned Breitbart News on Friday that the author of a completely factual story concerning the accuser of Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore needed to consult “additional reporting” from the liberal fact-checker Politifact. The story, published on Friday morning, detailed how Beverly Young Nelson, who accused Roy Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager, admitted to adding “notes” to part of her yearbook, which she claims Moore signed. This revelation came despite Nelson claiming at her initial press conference alongside her lawyer Gloria Allred, that the entire yearbook document was solely Moore’s handwriting. In a message
MCALLEN, Texas — A South Texas jury sentenced a former Catholic priest to life in prison for the murder of a local school teacher and former beauty queen in 1960 when he was assigned to a local church. For more than 55 years, the priest managed to avoid facing any consequences in connection with the murder. (Snip) During the trial, testimony pointed to a deal between the district attorney in 1960 and members of the Catholic Church. As part of the agreement, Feit was expected to plead guilty to the assault and authorities would not investigate him in connection with the murder.
(Video) Two horse trainers were seriously injured trying to save their own and others´ horses at a stable in Bonsall when a fire erupted Thursday morning. Horsemen Joe Herrick and Martine Bellocq suffered burns to their body while trying to rescue some of the hundreds of elite training horses stabled at San Luis Rey Downs in Bonsall. About 25 horses were killed in the blaze. Bellocq’s brother-in-law told NBC 7 she suffered second- and third-degree burns on over 50 percent of her body, while trying to save the six horses she had at San Luis Rey. She is in a medically induced coma and in critical condition.
Birmingham, ALABAMA — A handwriting expert prominently cited by the Washington Post on the matter of the yearbook presented as evidence by Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson raised new questions today in a Breitbart News interview about the inscription and signature at the center of national controversy. Specifically, the expert raised doubts about whether the initials “DA” at the end of Moore’s alleged signature evidenced stylistic differences when compared to the rest of the writing in the yearbook. The forensic document examiner, Mark Songer, a former FBI agent, also called for Nelson’s attorney,
It would be EXPLOSIVE if it turned out the October 2016 FISA warrant was gained by use of the Christopher Steele dossier. That’s a critical and key element to the sunlight upon the entire enterprise. If the counterintelligence FISA warrant was obtained through deception, misleading/manipulated information, or fraud; and that warrant is what led to the wiretapping and surveillance of candidate Donald Trump and General Flynn; and that warrant was authorized by FISA Court Judge Contreras –who was the judge in Flynn’s case, and is now recused– the entire tenuous FBI and DOJ operation begins to collapse.The back-story to the Link repaired by Staff
Deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, a driving force behind the Trump administration’s Middle East policy, plans to leave the White House as part of an anticipated wave of departures following President Trump’s first year in office, according to four senior administration officials. Unlike some top White House officials who were fired or resigned amid controversy this year, Powell is exiting on good terms with the president, the officials said. She and Trump have discussed her departure and are working on an arrangement for Powell to continue advising the administration on Middle East policy from outside the government, according to
Three weeks ago, in a partisan effort to dismiss what is now an admitted forgery, and what at the time was an obvious forgery, the left-wing Washington Post’s Philip Bump (already a proven liar) consulted former FBI agent Mark Songer, a forensics documents examiner, to examine a yearbook produced by one of Roy Moore’s accusers as evidence he assaulted her. The expert concluded that the “writing seems consistent with one writer.” The context of when Bump published this piece is important. If you recall, the Washington Post was the news outlet that first broke the story of the Moore allegations, and
A very stylish Ivanka Trump joined the rest of her family including her husband and children at the White House to celebrate an ´especially special´ Hanukkah one day after the president declared Jerusalem Israel´s capital and setting off criticism and clashes. The 36-year-old mother-of-three was all smiles alongside her husband, Jared Kushner, and children - Arabella, 6, Joseph, 4 and one-year-old Theodore, inside the East Room of the White House Thursday night where they joined her father and the first lady who hosted a Hanukkah reception. During the reception, Ivanka shared a video to her Instagram account showing Arabella and Joseph participating
One of the women who accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of making advances on her when she was a teen and he a local prosecutor admitted Friday to forging part of the yearbook inscription she offered as proof. Beverly Young Nelson told ABC News she wrote part of the disputed note in her high school yearbook that she and famed attorney Gloria Allred presented as proof the then-30-something Moore sought an inappropriate relationship with her in the late 1970s. Nelson still insisted that Moore wrote most of the message and signed the inscription, but said she made “notes” to
Lindsey Vonn’s road to her final Olympics has encountered some trouble. The American skiing star was treated for a back injury after completing her World Cup Super-G race in St. Moritz, Switzerland on Saturday. Vonn went to the ground after crossing the finish line and observers said she was experiencing extreme pain. She was treated in a nearby house and later limped to a car without speaking to reporters.
I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,
MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said Thursday night that "the worst you can say about Democrats is that they´re too pure" in light of recent resignation announcements made by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Conyers (D-Mich.) amid sexual harassment allegations. Franken, 66, on Thursday, announced his intention to resign from the Senate by defiantly stating that some of the eight accusations of sexual misconduct made against him were false while saying he remembered other encounters differently.
Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting
Al Franken’s resignation speech on Thursday seemed less heartfelt than grudging. He cast it not as an act of atonement — he continues to deny the charges largely and acknowledged through his stifled rage that his previous quasi-apologies had hastened his demise — but a reluctant act of gallantry. He was submitting docilely to the “broader conversation” on sexual harassment, he said, while signaling that his replacement, to whom he referred as “her,” would be a female pol embodying that conversation. The speech followed the usual pattern of lying pols: I didn’t do it, I’m only quitting because I am a
Comedian Sarah Silverman addressed the topic of American nationalism during a monologue on her Hulu talk show Thursday night, describing the “visceral reaction” and fear she felt when an old boyfriend of hers hoisted an American flag on his own property. (Snip) “[My sister] was like, ‘Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance — these things tend to ring a bell for us,’” she said. “Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense. And it made me realize that the things that terrify some people are the same things that give other people great
California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday. Brown, who previously studied to become
In ever so lacy, delicate and pious tears-and-flapdoodle language, former President Obama basically suggested President Trump is Hitler. According to the Daily Mail: Barack Obama appeared to compare Donald Trump´s presidency to Hitler´s rise to power during a speech in Chicago on Tuesday. The former president was speaking at an event thrown by the Economic Club of Chicago at a Hilton hotel when he made the remarks. Without mentioning the current president, Obama told the gathered audience of 1,800: ´We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.
Opposition research must have started as soon as, if not before, Donald Trump announced he was running for president. I am sure many of Trump´s Republican opponents, as well as Hillary Clinton, the DNC, liberal interest groups, the media, and others were searching far and wide for trash on Trump. The research must not have produced enough trash, or else why would the DNC and Hillary have paid Fusion GPS so handsomely to create what is clearly a false document? Fusion GPS trafficked the document to the Justice Department and intelligence officials. They obviously had seen how many intelligence officials
Thomas B. Edsall, one of the pre-eminent commentators on American politics and elections, has written a piece for the New York Times, provocatively titled “Liberals Need To Take Their Fingers Out of Their Ears.” In it, he argues that the roots of President Trump’s success—and our increasingly bitter politics—should be laid at the feet (to continue with the body-part metaphors) of liberals. “Many Democrats,” he writes, “continue to have little understanding of their own role — often inadvertent, an unintended consequence of well-meaning behavior — in creating the conditions that make conservatives willing to support Trump and the party he
WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
