DES MOINES — It’s not often that a Democratic Party top national strategist travels to Iowa to lament an election loss of a prominent conservative Republican leader.

But that happened Friday when Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz warned that the defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a Virginia Republican who is the second most-powerful U.S. House leader, could be a harbinger of deeper political extremism, gridlock and obstructionism....

Good.

Maybe three days, weeks, or months in the belly of the Tea-Party whale will change the GOP's mind, like Noah changed his mind and actually did what he was supposed to do.

I'm sure the bad guys were also glad to see Noah swallowed up. They didn't know what was coming. The bad guys never do.

Debbie, it’s time for you to return to your home planet, where your idiocy will do less harm.

No problem at all. It is the best thing that could save the GOP. As it is now, it is only Dimocrap lite.

Just to be clear, the Washerwoman was appearing on behalf of Bruce Braley, the Dem opponent of Joni Ernst for the US Senate seat in Iowa.

Next up is an Iowa state GOP convention, featuring Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, and Rand Paul.

Well usually they tap the treasury to buy Democrat voters and give losers unable to get a job some 300% overpaid government job.

Extremism in the cause of liberty is no vice. As for the rest, I can only hope so.

McAuliffe in Virginia just said the same thing.

It must be the official Democrat narrative.

Last time I checked conservatives hold no powerful leadership positions.
When will conservatives get the real power in the form of leadership
positions?

COMMUNISM

IN THE U. S. A.

The first of a series on the Communist conspiracy and its influence in this country as a whole, on religion, on education, on labor and on our government

^^No Communist, no matter how many votes he should secure in a national election, could, even if he would, become President of the present government. When a Communist heads the govern- ment of the United States — and that day will come just as surely as the sun rises— the government will not he a capitalist government hut a Soviet government, and hehind this government will stand the Red army to enforce the dictatorship of the proletariat, ‘’

Sworn statement of WILLIAM Z. FOSTER

Head of the Communist Party in the United States

If you ever find yourself in open debate with a Communist the facts here given can be used to destroy his arguments completely and expose him as he is for all to see.

Every citizen owes himself and his family the truth about Com- munism because the world today is faced with a single choice: To go Communist or not to go Communist. Here are the facts.

1 . What is Com-munism? A system by which one small group seeks to rule the world.

2. Has any nation ever gone Communist in a free election?

No. 3. Then how do the Communists try to get control?

Legally or illegally, any way they can. Communism’s first big victory was through bloody revolution. Every one since has been by military conquest, or internal corruption, or the threat of these.

CONSPIRACY is the basic method of Communism in countries it is trying to capture.

IRON FORCE is the basic method of Communism in countries it has already captured.

1 2. What would happen to my insurance? The Communists would take it over.

34. Where are their headquarters in the United States, and who is in charge?

Headquarters are at 35 East Twelfth Street, New York City. Wil- liam Z. Foster, of 1040 Melton Avenue, New York City, has the title of “Chairman of the Communist Party of the United States,” but Foster is actually just a figurehead under control of foreign operatives unseen by and unknown to rank and file Communists.

55. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the United States? The hammer and sickle.

36. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union? The hammer and sickle.

57. What is the flag of the Communist Party in the United States? The red flag, the same as that of all Communist Parties of the world.

49. What kind of people become Communists?

The real center of power in Communism is within the professional classes.

Of course, a few poor people respond to the Communist claim that it is a “working class movement.”

But taken as a whole the Party depends for its strength on the sup- port it gets from teachers, preachers, actors, writers, union officials, doctors, lawyers, editors, businessmen, and even from millionaires.

This primary season has to be about drawing lines and targeting GOP-E that is willing to work with the communists and turning the primary into a referendum on communists and their fellow travelers in the GOP.

It’s like the trick kids play on each other: “How many of each animal did Moses take on the ark?”

Everyone thinks they know the answer, but most get it wrong because they don’t stop and think.

I hope this LIB/DIM buffoon is correct about the TEA party swallowing the GOP.

I get so tired of Democrats talking about Republican obstructionism when the Democrats are the true obstructionists. For them it’s their way, or no way.

No problem at all. We should be so lucky. It may be a threat to the rats, but any threat to the rats, is ok with me.

But the Tea Party didn’t donate a dime to defeat Cantor. Why is everyone trying to pin Cantor’s defeat on the Tea Party?

Remember this is the party of Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Barbra Boxer, and Diane Feinstein and all that “Brilliance” is just from one State.

And here I was thinking that the Tea Party was dead. They did tell us so, right?

Extremism, in defense against your blithering Marxism, is no vice. Bitch.

Blow it out your ass, you toad.
