I’ve read through the Guest Lists three or four times, and still can’t get a clue about What’s The Game Plan for any of ‘em.

Charley Crist?????

Sheesh, are they having a casting call for a Gong Show revival?

Well, Crist is on CNN; hardly anyone watches THAT.

In any case, I am seeing a pattern of covering foreign affairs here to day, as I see a lot of former cold warriors. And it’s good to have Paul and Cruz on. Maybe little Georgie will get a “Cruz” missile up his fat behind!

The "difference" it makes determines the survival of the United States of America.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
"
President Ronald Reagan

Good morning, blessed Sunday, AB and everyone.

I'm still so happy and thrilled with Sarah Palin and her wonderful closing talk at CPAC yesterday! If anyone missed it LIVE, here it is!



Sarah Palin • CPAC • 2014 •

Democrats are all on vacation this week, except for Joaquin Castro, who apparently loves the cameras and studios.

Blinken is stand-in for the Regime.

Thanks for the thread AB much appreciated.
As far as I am concerned the highlight of the week at the annual C-Pac convention was Sarah Palin’s speech last night.
We had a live thread that followed the speech and there was not a dry eye to be found among the participants. I will be reviewing it over and over. Sarah was sheer dynamite and showed what true patriotism is all about. Wonderful speech.
The speech can be found here here among other locations on FR.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oO6C5UwwJTA

Also Ben Carson was in the top five of C-pac voters for potus.
What a dream team a Palin/Carson team would be.

Looks like the morning newsies may be trying the ole 'head 'em off at the pass' move by getting some 'gotcha' moments this morning.

Rand and Cruz got rousing approval at CPAC.

Sarah Palin rocked the CPAC house and I’m sure millions of viewers at home. Her rendition of Green Ham & Eggs is already being played on Fox ‘n Friends, with those stupid weekend fill-in’s sort of smiling in a snarky manner. I wanted to smack that Daily Caller nitwit, what’s-hisname?

Palin's very line--"Who could have seen this coming?" in reference to her 2008 warning about Russia possibly taking military action against the Ukraine--made me do a standing ovation in front of my computer.

TW is updating news regarding the Malaysian plane.

Apparently, not much new information has come over night.

2 [possibly 4, per other threads] boarded via stolen passports.

Weather was not an issue. Thus, the consensus seems to be catastrophic mechanical failure or terrorism [explosion or possible suicide-by-pilot-or-someone-in-cockpit].

Still no debris pattern, although Vietnam military/air force reported a lengthy oil slick.

==

Someone posted in one of the related threads that this kind of plane does an automatic ping to towers. That ping and all contact apparently stopped about 50 minutes into the flight. There are indications that the plane continued flying for another hour. A pilot in a different plane said he had momentary contact with the co-pilot at about the 2-hours-in-flight mark.

Soon after the plane disappeared, someone Tweeted that it landed in southern Vietnam. That apparently turned out to be false.

Democrats are all on vacation this week. That's a vast understatement for us here in the Upper Florida Keys as we endure the arrival of the dear leader at a posh resort community called The Ocean Reef Club.

It's a private club that seldom says no to our counties needs, is taxed heavily and relishes privacy that they have earned and paid for over and over. Admission to the club is reportedly as high as $450,000 and many members are still pissed that zero was allowed in and want to know who did the inviting but no one is saying anything yet.

You have to be invited in and its tough to even get in. We go there several times per month making deliveries and the security is really tight.

Anyway members will be all too happy when the Dear Leader leaves their impeccably manicured golf course. You can be sure he probably dislodged a few bucks from some wayward libs or rinos who may inhabit the place.

This is after all the MO of our dear leader. First take their money than play golf than Reggie.

Romney’s and Soros’ FOX “News” and Chris Wallace
attack .... Ted Cruz, and Wallace
asks Rand Paul to attack him, too.

So, Paul snarks Cruz and compliments ... Romney.

Wallace is so happy, that he moves on, and declares
Rand Paul and Jed Bush the leaders for 2016.

Conclusion: FOX “News” remains the liberal RINO channel
of Romney and Rove.
Fox “News” is as conservative ... as Obama.

Good morning RG and Onyx,

Thanks for posting Sarah’s speech - - I thought it was super! I liked Dr. Carson’s speech, too. He’s on Fox & Friends now here.
I still need to see Ted Cruz’s.

Eliana Johnson (IIRC she was on 1 of the panel discussions),
had a fairly good article on Sarah’s speech (posted by 2ndDivisionVet):
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3131157/posts

See also Post 46 on that thread. IMHO a good article written by a Rabbi (don’t recall seeing this one before).

If this club includes rich lib members, maybe some of them will reconsider who they support and vote for in the future, after this weekend’s events. Which I understand Obama takes over the entire golf course: closed to other members.

Yes, I clicked away from that horrid Peter King on MTP to go back to FnF to watch Patriot Dr. Ben Carson!

BTW, he came in third in the CPAC voting, right after Ted Cruz.

I’ll send you the link to Senator Cruz’s speech.

That article was from 2011, in the aftermath of the months-long attacks on Governor Palin following the Gabby Giffords shooting.

It's just a reminder how isolated she is in the political arena. Until Senator Cruz came along, I can't think of any public official that stood up for her in the clutch. She's a pariah to almost every elected representative.

They are terrified of someone that actually stands by their beliefs.

O the horrors! Cruz, being interviewed, calls Putin a thug!

Cruz says ‘5 years of showing weakness’ is not going to deter the likes of Putin — Benghazi attack getting no retribution, as an example.

Interviewer Jonathan Karl [sp] says Cruz upset so many that he is going to need a food taster. Cruz responds that he already has people volunteering for the position.

==

Interviewer failed to get a good ‘gotcha’ out of Cruz. He did get Cruz to admit (didn’t take much effort) that Cruz continues to think Obamacare can be repealed in its entirety.

Agree - - wish he was on longer. Of course, I could listen to him for a long time - - no bovine excrement, no political talking points, just tells it like he sees it and exudes common sense.

Wasn’t it Gov Palin that has mentioned “common sense conservatism” in many speeches?

I liked that he doesn’t bite on what some would consider “gotcha questions”. He wouldn’t respond to who he was leaning towards or supporting right now.

My guess is that he was invited by Jon Stryker, heir to The Stryker Corp.,and a billionaire. Stryker has a place at Ocean Reef and is a huge donor to Democrats and Obama.
My son’s father-in-law has a place there but he’s small potatoes compared to most.

This is a pretty unique club. It's membership is worldwide and is usually a third or fourth home for most members. Nearly every potus in the past 30 years has made an appearance here.Usually in the winter. It's a different world here from Thanksgiving until Easter.After that it becomes more local.

On Saturday night they have a buffet that is 150 feet long and has it all. Only the best no matter where it has to come from.But as previously stated most of these people have earned what they have.Privacy is everything here.

MTP Round Table:

Ralph Reed
Ron Fournier
Karen bAss (D-CA)
Andrea BITCH Mitchell

Ralph Reed taking control of the group and took that CA democrat to school with her attempt to slam Republicans over not helping the “poor” with big government hand outs, by pointing out that the GOP instituted the $1k child tax credit that Clinton vetoed 3 times.

bAss said Obama is right on with Putin, Fournier said Obama was caught flat-footed and added that perhaps we should be spying on Russia instead of our own people.
