When asked to relate the results of the Constitutional Convention of 1789 to a citizen as he left Independence Hall, Benjamin Franklin is reported to have replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” As the annual Conservative Political Action Conference ended last weekend, one might reply similarly to an observer that the future of the GOP is bright, if we can keep it.

These days, it’s popular to claim that Senator Ted Cruz is only looking out for himself. And this is undoubtedly true. Much in the same way John McCain is only looking out for himself and Chuck Schumer is only looking out for himself, and every millionaire Senator looking to hold on to his or her seat in perpetuity is looking out for #1. Cruz just happens to be better at it.

GOP, conservatives can’t rock DC with a broken Speaker

February 13, 2014 3 comments

By Neil W. McCabe Thursday, February 13, 2014

One year after committing himself and his speakership to reducing the federal budget deficit, Rep. John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio) delivered to President Barack Obama and the Democrats a one-year hall pass that will suspend the debt ceiling until 2015.

The vote was 221 to 201 with 28 Republicans, like Boehner and his merry band of hacks, voting alongside their BFF’s across the aisle.

Members of the House GOP leadership had set the table for a small fight with the Democrats by tying the increase in the debt ceiling to the restoration of cuts in military pensions—hardly the stuff of heroic last stands. But, if anything, it was a rejection of the cuts called for and defended by the Republican leadership, specifically, House Budget Chairman Paul D. Ryan (R.-Wis.).

President Obama on Friday night continued throwing his entire second-term agenda against the wall to see what sticks, challenging Republicans to join him and support more federal spending, pass immigration reform and tackle other challenges.

 

********

 

But should the GOP stand in the way, the president indicated he’s willing to use executive orders to accomplish his aims.

 

“What we’ve seen over the last several years is a constant ratcheting up of partisanship that prevents us from moving forward on things that I think most people would say aren’t Democrat or Republican ideas.

 

They’re just good, common-sense American ideas,” Mr. Obama said at a Democratic party fundraiser in Miami. “Energy independence is one of them. Making sure that we’re investing in the best schools, so that our children can compete in this new global economy; rebuilding our infrastructure, not just our energy infrastructure, but our ports and our roads and our bridges and our air traffic control systems, so that we stay on the cutting edge; making sure we’re investing in research and development …

I have been trying to remember when there was so much anger between the Democrats and Republicans. Or maybe I should say between liberals and conservatives? Or maybe I should say between the Tea Party and the Republican Party? Or maybe I should say those who find the President of the United States a contemptible liar who has diminished a once great superpower to an object of disrespect?

“You have the courage to tell the masses what no politician told them: you are inferior and all the improvements in your condition which you simply take for granted you owe to the efforts of men who are better than you.”

 

-Letter from Ludwig von Mises to Ayn Rand

 

“We can’t all be born rich and handsome and lucky, and that’s why we have a Democratic party!”

 

-Former Georgia Gov. Zell Miller

 

In his essay, “Chirping Sectaries,” conservative thinker Russell Kirk famously derided the idea of a libertarian alliance with conservatives as “like advocating a union between fire and ice.” While I think he was wrong as a practical matter at the time, when I hear people today talking about libertarian populism, I can’t help understanding what he meant.

 

Let me state something at the outset. Though there are many people in the libertarian movement who would contest this

While many people will attack GOP leaders in the Senate for not understanding what Sen. Ted Cruz is doing, don’t count me as one of them. You see GOP leadership has been handicapped for quite some time now.

Mark Twain, who witnessed the impeachment debacle of Andrew Johnson in the House of Representatives in 1868, pegged it: “[I] was reporter in a legislature two sessions and the same in Congress one session,” Twain wrote, “and thus learned to know personally three sample bodies of the smallest minds and the selfishest souls and the cowardliest hearts that God makes.”

You must understand that it’s very difficult for politicians to recognize another politician, as in the case of Sen. Cruz, who is actually doing the things he campaigned on, like getting rid of Obamacare.

Poll: Republican voters have embraced libertarian valuesUnited Liberty ^ | 9/12/13 | Jason PyePosted on Thursday, September 19, 2013 12:45:28 PM by shego

The libertarian philosophy is taking the Republican Party by storm, according to a poll conducted by FreedomWorks, a DC-based grassroots service center with over 6 million members.

With Sen. Rand Paul R-KY, Rep. Justin Amash R-MI and many other liberty-minded politicians gaining influence, libertarianism has generated new interest inside the Republican Party, much to the chagrin of the GOP’s political establishment….”FreedomWorks’ poll shows that 42 percent of Republicans have a favorable view of the word ‘libertarian,’ and only 10 percent don’t know the word, compared to 27 percent who don’t know nationally,” they added.

“Big Tent Libertarian”

The “Big Tent Libertarian” language is the tip-off. The GOP in general and Mainstream Republicans in particular have had little regard or respect for libertarians, seen mainly as competitors for hearts, minds and votes; not so much dollars since Libertarians don’t even support their own candidates.

Up until the Age of The O, the GOP Leadership Machine (of which Armey was once a big cog) played Back Bench Bombers when not in a majority and Democrat Lite when they were.

Republican Leaders Approve America as a One-Party State

By Ambrose Bierce’s Ghost

No longer capable of providing any effective opposition, Republican leaders and party consultants have agreed that the Democrats should assume permanent political control of the country.

At a June 25, 2013 White House meeting, originally announced as a foreign policy discussion, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) promised President Barack Obama that Republicans would offer only token resistance to all future legislation proposed by the Democrats. In return, Obama would permit the Republicans to remain a minority party in Congress, run candidates in certain Democrat-approved Congressional races and allow them to continue to raise money for losing Republican candidates through Karl Rove’s political action committees.

Sarah Palin: I was forbidden to tell the truth about Obama in 2008 – BizPac Review

July 27, 2013 1 comment

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin didn’t mince words about President Obama and White House press secretary Jay Carney, calling the scandals plaguing the administration “phony.”

Appearing in “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren on Friday, Palin questioned which scandals the pair consider phony, saying it isn’t a coincidence that both Obama and Carney are using the term.

“He’s trying to run out the clock,” Palin said. It’s like a stall play in a basketball game. “It’s cowardly, and nothing good is going to come from this.”

Palin said that during her 2008 vice presidential run, she was banned from talking about Obama’s relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers and the then-senator’s lack of knowledge or job experience.

Only a few weeks ago, Graham breathlessly claimed that any effort to include gay binational couples in the immigration bill would cause him to withdraw his support for the legislation, effectively killing it.

 

 

 

So Democrats threw gays under the bus, yet again refusing to include our number one immigration priority in the so-called “comprehensive” immigration reform bill in order to appease Republicans.

Some of us at the time had been arguing that the Republicans were bluffing; that the GOP is desperate to get immigration reform passed in order to weaken the lock the Democratic party has on the Latino vote (a population on the rise in terms of its percentage of the electorate). There is no way the GOP is going to risk killing immigration reform for anything. At least not the Senate GOP.

Stanton Evans 4/30/2013 06:00 AMRESIZE: AAAPrint27If and when Congress votes on a new immigration bill – whatever the “triggers,” timetables or other provisos – the real issue to be decided will be the same as it has been from the beginning.

 

Is immigration reform political suicide for GOP?

 

That issue is whether the Republican Party, dazed from a daily pounding by the Washington press corps, will agree to commit political suicide by enfranchising 11 plus million illegal aliens on U.S. soil, the vast majority of whom will soon be casting Democratic ballots.

……Ron Paul Has Brilliantly Turned the Tables On the Political Establishment

His campaign is using the closed two-party control structure and their media gatekeepers previously utilized to control public opinion and elections against them. For example the state presidential primary and caucus system, televised debates and related campaign news coverage formerly was a GOP establishment monopoly. Today thanks to the Internet, it has become the Trojan horse used by Paul’s campaign and liberty supporters to get inside the closed walls of the GOP to educate millions of Americans about freedom and free-market ideas.

The establishment news media has been powerless to stop this infiltration so the real battle in 2012, isn’t the visible political campaign but rather the hidden impotence of the media elites to protect the establishment control. This is why the media so hates and fears Ron Paul.

His campaign is the new road map for how pro-liberty candidates and forces together with the alternative media can and will eventually defeat the power elites main protectors and gatekeepers, which is the media establishment.

The Wednesday night GOP Presidential debate could well be the last in this campaign cycle. In fact, it could be the last GOP presidential debate in your lifetime if future freedom candidates follow the Ron Paul model of turning a major campaign into an educational effort against the GOP establishment.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — In the GOP’s ongoing establishment vs. grassroots saga, chalk one up for the establishment.

 

Since Mitt Romney’s loss, the Rand Paul wing of the party has been on the ascendency. But libertarians hit a roadblock Friday as the Republican National Committee opted at its spring meeting to keep in place a host of rules rammed through by the Romney campaign at last year’s national convention.

Riding shotgun in a red minivan, his foot propped on the dash, the Republican Party’s man of the moment zips down the back roads of southern Kentucky.

 

Rand Paul is on his way to a meeting with Christian leaders in Somerset, a conservative stronghold where locals couldn’t buy alcohol until last year.

 

It’s his third event in as many hours, and he looks tired; his voice nearly gave out the day before.

A handful of Democratic members of Congress were warned by the Party’s big donors to get in line behind President Obama’s push for gun-control legislation lest they face “dire consequences.”

 

“Money is the ‘mother’s milk’ of political success,” said a leading Democratic financier under promise of anonymity. “Senators from GOP leaning states may think they’ll face electoral defeat if they come out in favor of gun-control. We just want to remind them that they’ll be taken off the campaign cash teat if they don’t.”

For the first time, I am wondering about the long-term viability of the Republican Party. I say this not as an advocate of its demise or restructuring but as an observer of troubling signs.

 

The Republican Party is thought to be the institutional vehicle for the advancement of conservative policies, but for decades, the conservative movement has been frustrated with the party’s deviation from conservative principles — its refusal to live up to its decidedly conservative platform.

 

I believe that the disappointing results for Republicans in the 2006 elections and probably the 2012 elections, as well, were in no small part attributable to frustrated conservatives staying at home.

 

The thinking among many conservatives has been that the party has consistently fallen short by failing to restrain the growth of the ever-expanding federal government and by failing to nominate sufficiently conservative presidential nominees. That is, if we would just nominate and elect Reagan conservatives and govern on Reagan principles, we would recapture majority status in no time.

Obama Supporter and Poll Watcher Charged for Voting SIX TIMES in 2012 Presidential Election

Melowese Richardson voted a reported six times for President Obama in November of 2012. Twice she used her real name, then another four using the names of her relatives. If convicted she faces a maximum of 12 years in prison.

More disturbing is that Richardson is a long time poll worker and has worked for the Board of Elections in Hamilton County, Ohio since 1998. People like her were watching the polls when President Obama won by close margins, often with “odd” voting totals, in November.

Richardson

Among these statistical anomalies occurred in Pennsylvania, when President Obama received over 99% of vote at polls where GOP inspectors were removed. In addition, in those areas turnout was somehow “30%” above government numbers.

Even many progressives, Democrats and black folks are snapping out of their well-meaning stupor as they see one freedom crushed after another by this regime. Increased taxes, unemployment and compromised health care are hitting the left also. That simply wasn’t the deal offered by Obama. Liberal and conservative seniors are suffering.

Karl Rove’s declaration of war on conservatives will bring the GOP a slow and agonizing death « Coach is Right

The phonies of the Karl Rove Wing of the Republican Party didn’t get it then and they still don’t. They are fooling themselves by refusing to look at the numbers. The GOP just doesn’t understand that asking us to vote for a Republican because he is not a Democrat doesn’t fire conservatives up, and the stupid fools think they can win without conservative support.

Sen. Rand Paul says he’ll wait until 2014 to decide whether to run for president, but he believes voters are ready for a Libertarian-minded Republican candidate.

 

“I would absolutely not run unless it were to win,” the Kentucky Republican said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Points have been made, and we we will continue to make points. But I think the country is really ready for the narrative coming — the Libertarian Republican narrative.”

JB Williams — The Proper Definition of Conservative…

EXCERPT!!!!!

…………….By my definition, I believe that most Americans are in fact conservatives. Why is this not reflected in recent elections? Political lines are totally blurred today, that’s why.

 

rprprprp

Simply stated, neither primary political party represents these Americans today. Conservatives want their governments run the same way they run their homes, their businesses, their churches, their lives, and raise their children to become decent, honest, productive members of society. They want a moral, ethical and fiscally responsible government that reflects their personal convictions and above all, protects individual freedom and liberty for all. No such political party exists at present.

 

This explains why half of registered voters no longer bother to vote at all, and why many voters have sought a new political home in a litany of failed 3rd party explorations.

 

 

 

It also explains why today’s “conservative movement” is struggling to gain any traction. Most of the people in today’s so-called “conservative movement” are not conservatives, at least by my definition.

On January 28, 2013, a group of Republicans in Congress decided to close down the Republican Party. Their “going out of business sale” involves converting an estimated 12 to 20 million trespassing illegal aliens into solidly-Democrat voters. Republicans will ensure Democrat control of Congress and the White House with millions of new voters for generations to come.

Devvy Kidd — How the GOP committed political suicide in 1982

February 3, 2013 1 comment

“In 1982, the Republican National Committee (“RNC”) and the Democratic National Committee (“DNC”) entered into a consent decree (the “Decree” or “Consent Decree”), which is national in scope, limiting the RNC’s ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the court’s approval in advance.

The RNC appeals from a judgment of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey denying, in part, the RNC’s Motion to Vacate or Modify the Consent Decree. Although the District Court declined to vacate the Decree, it did make modifications to the Decree. The RNC argues that the District Court abused its discretion by modifying the Decree as it did and by declining to vacate the Decree. For the following reasons, we will affirm the District Court’s judgment.

BUCHANAN: THE GOP’S AMNESTY CAUCUS RAISES WHITE FLAG

 

By: Patrick J. Buchanan 2/1/2013 On Monday, Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake and Marco Rubio emerged with an offer of a Republican surrender to Barack Obama.

 

 

 

 

 

We will accept amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens, said the four, but you must get serious about securing the border against yet another invasion. Only after an independent commission agrees the border has been secured will the 11 million be given green cards and put on a path to citizenship.

 

The next day in Las Vegas, Obama, reveling in victory, instructed the four waving their white flags that the defeated do not dictate terms.

A Not-So-Doomed GOP (The party has overwhelming local success, but is a federal failure)

The Republicans are doomed. Conservatism is over. President Obama is conducting a mop-up operation at this point.

 

That’s the basic consensus in places like New York City; Washington, D.C.; and other citadels of blue America.

And let’s be fair, liberals have every reason to gloat — a little. The GOP has its troubles. Long-term demographic trends; often-irrational animosity from Hollywood, the media, and academia; a thumbless grasp of the culture on the part of many Republicans: All of these things create a headwind for the party and the broader conservative movement.

 

But here’s the weird part. That’s all true of presidential politics, but less so when it comes to state politics or even other federal races. In 2010, the GOP had its best performance in congressional races since 1938.

Rand Paul: Time for GOP to soften war stance

February 1, 2013 2 comments

The Republican Party needs to broaden its appeal by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly “eager to go to war,” U.S. Sen. Rand Paul told hundreds of Greater Cincinnati Republicans Saturday.

 

“We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don’t always all agree on every issue,” the Kentucky Republican said at the Northeast Hamilton County Republican Club’s annual pancake breakfast at the Sharonville Convention Center.

Passion, Principle, and Politics… (“Didn’t Ron Paul Really Win? Lynette Rosinger on 8 reasons not to be sad Romney lost.”)

January 15, 2013 Leave a comment

Recently I received two email articles outlining analyses of the GOP 2012 presidential election loss, one written by Rabbi Pruzansky and another written by Professor Hollis.

The authors agree that Romney was an outstanding candidate, that he was an admirable man, and that Ryan was a wise choice as a running mate. They concur that he lost because our nation has become immature, and irresponsible. They both fear that because of this, America as we have known it, is over or at least close to the brink.

I agree with the authors about the challenges posed by a left-wing media and I acknowledge that the institutional woes that characterize our current culture are worrisome. But, when it comes to the authors’ conclusion that the nation hit a tipping point with this election and that we are over the brink in terms of people who do not want freedom outnumbering those who do, I believe they are wrong.

Official Washington hailed the deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff as a significant bipartisan accomplishment. However, voters around the country viewed the deal in very partisan terms: Seven out of 10 Democrats approved of it, while seven…of 10 Republicans disapproved.

 

Just a few days after reaching that agreement, an inside-the-Beltway publication reported another area of bipartisan agreement…while Washington Democrats have always viewed GOP voters as a problem, Washington Republicans “in many a post-election soul-searching session” have come to agree. More precisely, the article said the party’s Election 2012 failures have “brought forth one principal conclusion from establishment Republicans: They have a primary problem.”

As seen from the halls of power, the problem is that Republican voters think it’s OK to replace incumbent senators and congressman who don’t represent the views of their constituents. In 2012, for example, Republican voters in Indiana dumped longtime Sen. Richard Lugar in a primary battle. This infuriated establishment Republicans for two reasons. First, because. In 2012, for example, Republican voters in Indiana dumped longtime Sen. Richard Lugar in a primary battle.
