I wonder what BS Reince will come up with to defend the illegal activity by the Cochran camp.
Good morning AB, all
As always, thank you AB for putting up this thread, do appreciate it.
The lady whose life my daughter saved died this past Tuesday, poor child of mine went to hospital to see her but she’d died just two hours earlier.
There’s no scheduled viewing or service, a burial plot is somewhere I must think.
Creepy heirs all fighting over house and stuff, those who never helped that poor woman in life.
Later on in the thread want to ask yon readers if they don’t see a truly diabolical plot to eliminate Tea Party contenders, if it can get any more diabolical than Thad Cochran.
This past week was same old, except Supreme Court did smack down Obama badly.
Will it eventually lead to a court order to STOP this man?
We shall see.
Wow...president Jarrett? What lies ahead? Pun intended.
Thanks for thread A.B. Time for leadership. GOP may not win Senate if the outrage over their shenanigans cause a backlash against Thad and McConnell, et al, giving red states to the Rats. But somehow our voices must get through. The only ray of hope is Judge Emmet Sullivan considering a Special Prosecutor in IRS matter. He has been on bench for 20 years, a Clinton appointee, Black, tough and independent. He could be the key. Pray for him.
Mid-week news: Diane Sawyer is leaving the evening news post.
She is one I never could watch, even before she got that position. She always seemed so smarmy, so smug, so condescending — and that was when she was sober. Those few times she was caught on video a bit tipsy were interesting short clips, however.
Every time I saw Diane Sawyer I expected an update on the Dilley quintuplets.
But when the judge died, the people returned to ways even more corrupt than those of their ancestors, following other gods and serving and worshiping them. They refused to give up their evil practices and stubborn ways.
What we witnessed in Mississippi was the most despicable political act in the histoir of the Republican Party. When the Party elites declare open war on the Conservative base and the Tea Party it is one thing, but when they stoop to reaching out to Democrats to crossover and use racial tactics that is something completely over the line. This simply demonstrates how corrupt and out of control this Party has become and in serious need of a complete overhaul. Thad Cochran lost that race and should step down and allow the actual Republican nominee to run against the actual Democrat nominee.
In Mississippi voters are allowed to crossover in primary elections which is a ridiculous idea and especially in a runoff, but this is more of the feel good politics we have seen to supposedly grow the Party. We now see clearly the problem with that system in that by possibly losing that seat due to the base not supporting Cochran. Due to allowing crossover voters Cochran and the establishment leaders of the GOP used the racist Democrat playbook to get Democrat blacks to vote for him and steal the election. The bigger question is if the Dems worked with him through voter fraud?
He sent some vile flyers in black neighborhoods and rallied the black leaders to scare the community that if McDaniel would win it would be the end of black welfare benefits. Cochran claimed since McDaniel was a Tea Party candidate he was a racist and would institute racist programs. This is unacceptable to call another Republican a racist and to rally the Democrat blacks and media by using the most disgusting accusation so you can maintain your pathetic seat.
If the Republican Party had one shred of dignity, no really, they would demand Cochran step down from the nomination and declare McDaniel the winner. This has severely damaged the Party with the base and will seriously dampen the upcoming election as we see once again that the so called big tent seems to close the flap for Conservatives and especially the Tea Party. As always they believe the completely false assumption that the elections are won in the middle when in fact they are won on the Right. None of those 7,000 votes that were the margin of victory will vote for Cochran in the general and if the people he called racist do not turn out then it wont matter how many votes he gets from the middle, he loses.
The election managers for the Republican Party have destroyed the Party and are the reason we have lost all three branches of gummit for the past twenty years. Their continued attacks and abuse of the Tea Party has become obsessive and destructive to the point of alienating the base. This is the kiss of death for a Conservative Party that needs every vote to win. The myth is that races are won in the middle is just that, a Mitt. The race is won by getting your base involved enough to do the hard work it takes to get elected.
By the Repubs using the age old strategy of throwing everyone under the bus that dares to disagree or state the truth in an unvarnished fashion they have managed to lose every national election since Reagan. Papa Bush only won by lying that he would continue the Reagan agenda and GW barely won by saying he was a Conservative only to follow the opposite strategy of Compassionate Conservatiism which turned out to be Socialist Conservatism. His later attempt to pander to the Hispanic Democrats not only alienated him with the Conservatives he lost all of his defenders and the media was able to turn the entire country against him. This is exactly what the political managers in the Party do not understand when you cater to the middle you lose your supporters.
The main cliché in the general election is that elections are won in the middle when in reality they are won on the Right. The voting public is to the Right of the general population since it takes a certain amount of knowledge and effort to actually vote. If you only have around 40% of the general population voting then it must be for the most part a group who understands the value of voting and what it stands for. The further Right you move the higher the percentage of voters which to the extreme Right and the extreme Left you have nearly perfect voting, or would have if the extreme Right had someone to vote for as we just saw in Mississippi.
Other then the extreme Marxists who hate this country and vote out of pure hatred, the average voter is to the Right of the middle. This is why Marxist professors taught the Democrat strategists to move to the Right since they know they would never get elected telling the voters what they wanted to do to them. So after they were nominated spewing their Marxist dogma to their leftists they would have to move to the Right to go where the voting public is. Repubs mirror that strategy since it is the agreed strategy and have been taught that by their Marxist professors and tell their candidates to move to the Left and pander to the Dem voter. The problem with this strategy is you are moving away from the voting public at large and away from your most ardent voters and you are courting a group that will only vote for you at 1%. Our candidates spend 95% of their effort chasing the 1% when they should do just the opposite to win.
What Repub strategists do not understand is they are moving away from the voters while the Dems are moving towards the voters. The middle is going to break around 60-40 towards who they view as the most Conservative who in most elections is the Dem who only has to pretend to be Conservative while bashing the Conservative as a racist, sexist, homophobe since he already has put himself on top of the economic message which the Conservative moved away from. This is why Romney and the rest of the Party have lost election after election and especially in so-called Blue states. You have to put your flag on the Right.
To win elections Repubs have to stay where they are and direct their message to the Right and give them a reason to support them. They need to get them motivated you have to tell them you care about them and you will take their message to the gummit without hesitation. This will get them to not only vote, but bring you boots on the ground to make sure the rest of the base votes and will bring a larger portion of the voting public while stranding the Dem in no mans land in the middle wasteland. The middle will vote for a Conservative they may not agree with on the social issues, but respect which does not happen to a panderer. The fact of the matter and we have stats to prove this, the further left a Repub goes the more he dampens his vote.
What the GOPe did in Mississippi to bitterly cling to power may have not only damaged their chances in that state, but may have dampened the vote around the country. In that election the establishment said they not only dont care about the Right Wing, but will do whatever it takes to eliminate them from the public forum. They said they despise their most solid voters and will resort to calling those voters the most vile names to hold onto their shrinking power. They are playing a dangerous game with this country as they are willing to destroy their most loyal voters and lose this country to hold onto one of their own corrupt insiders. This is how far the GOP has fallen and needs to demand that Cochran resign to find their way back.
Pray America wakes up
