  • TAMING OF THE CONSERVATIVE SHREW: New book exposes the sellout Ann Coulter

    02/02/2012 5:05:00 PM PST · by geraldmcg · 27 replies · 1+ views ^ | 02/02/2012 |
    Principled conservatives are wondering how the candidate who signed into law taxpayer-funded abortions for just $50, promoted gay youth pride days as governor, and created the blueprint for Obamacare is winning the Republican presidential primary race? Conservative best-selling author Gregg Jackson, and nationally-syndicated radio host Steve Deace, have the answer in their new book We Won't Get Fooled Again: Where the Christian Right Went Wrong and How to Make America Right Again. In their new book, Jackson and Deace nail celebrity faux conservatives like Ann Coulter as the ones really to blame for the rise of Mitt Romney by using...

    [snip]...Jablonski remained true to his word -- neither he nor Obama showed up for the January 26 hearing. I noted last week that Obama was not scheduled to be anywhere near Atlanta on the date of the hearing, although I had wondered if still, perhaps, Georgia might be on his mind. According to reports in the blogosphere, the president's schedule on the morning of the 26th was open, and according to an unnamed source, Obama watched the live feed of the hearings. Perhaps Obama, as well as the several mainstream media news outlets I spotted at the hearing, were merely...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich invoked the spirit of the Founding Fathers by paraphrasing the Declaration of Independence in his speech to supporters following his second-place finish in the Florida Republican presidential primary. Gingrich, a trained historian and author, began his 15-minute speech by noting President Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the first national military cemetery when he spoke of “government of the people, by the people, for the people." “And we’re going to have people power to defeat money power in the next six months,” he said in a reference to Florida victor Mitt Romney,...

    On Saturday night, at precisely 9:19 and 30 seconds, my iPhone, my iPad, my computer and, for all I know, my toaster were informed that Herman Cain had endorsed Newt Gingrich. The ping-ping of the devices suggested that something momentous had happened--alerts from both The Post and the New York Times--but in fact it was just additional evidence that the Republican Party has become a circus: One clown endorsed another. It’s hard to know who is the more ridiculous figure — the grandiloquent, bombastic and compulsively dishonest Gingrich, or the beguilingly ignorant Cain, a man who has never held elective...

    If Georgia’s Secretary of State says Obama is off the ballot, it will set in motion a scary domino effect that will devastate down ballot Democrats.It’s doubtful that the media will explain what is likely to happen if there is a blank space at the top of the Democrat slate in Georgia next November, but here’s a likely scenario.The results the latest IBD/TIPP survey hold nothing but bad news for Obama and his Democrats. Almost 2 /3 of the respondents agreed that we are preparing for the most important election since 1860. Even in the absence of hard evidence, can...

    Activists are expressing serious concerns that Mitt Romney’s private equity firm Bain Capital owns one of America’s largest media conglomerates, Clear Channel Communications, Inc., which broadcasts numerous popular talk-show hosts with incalculable influence in the 2012 GOP primary. Among the radio personalities syndicated by Clear Channel or aired on hundreds of stations it owns nationwide are Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, and many others. Because of the San Antonio-based media giant’s enormous influence — it is the largest owner of radio stations in the United States, and experts point out that it essentially owns what...

    The most telling moment of the debate was (Romney's) response to Rick Santorum's eloquent explanation of Obamacare's importance to the GOP's strategy ...and why giving Romney the nomination would be ...surrendering the high ground on health reform: "Folks, we can't give this issue away in this election. It is about fundamental freedom." ...Romney then uttered the most revealing words of the debate: "First of all, it's not worth getting angry about." Obama's recent State of the Union address contained only three references to his "signature domestic achievement." This is, as Michael Barone puts it, "the strongest evidence possible" that the...

    What an action-packed three years it has been since the last presidential election! With the advent of the Tea Party movement in 2009, the ever-encroaching realm of big government collided with the constitutional principles espoused by patriotic Americans in an unprecedented fashion, and We The People found our voice. We assembled from coast-to-coast in peaceful, heartfelt protests against the major themes of the Obama administration, namely, government intrusion in many private areas of our lives, wasteful, unrestrained spending, and anti-capitalism. In just under one year from now, voters will cast their ballots in what is believed to be the most...

    Coach is Right ^ | 1/30/2012 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The British and their colonial quislings once mocked American patriots with their song, “The world turned upside down.” In the First American Revolutionary War we stuffed their smug arrogance down their throats and turned THEIR world upside down by defeating them at Yorktown. Now as the patriots of today we have to fight a Second American Revolution and turn Barack Obama and his quisling Republicans’ world “upside down” by electing Newt Gingrich. In the first Revolution only a third of us were willing to fight for our freedoms. Our enemies were the British and about a third of our fellow...
  • Romney Advisor: Putting the boot on the neck of Gingrich. Aiming to destroy Gingrich in FL for good.

    After Gingrich Newt scored a surprise blow-out victory in South Carolina last week, the former Massachusetts governor not only unleashed a political broadside of epic proportions. "It not about winning here anymore," one Romney staffer told BuzzFeed. "It's about destroying Gingrich — and it's working." After two standout debate performances that put him up 9 points in recent polls, Romney is keeping the pressure on Gingrich, looking to score a blow-out victory of his own here. To that end, Romney has rolled out a team of surrogates in the Sunshine State to take the fight to Gingrich in person: from...

    It’s way too early in the presidential campaign to make predictions about the 2012 outcome. But at this point, President Obama might confidently say, “I’ve got ‘em right where I want ‘em.” Front-runners Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney are battering each other rhetorically as Rick Santorum and Ron Paul circle around, trying to get a jab in here and there. Obama’s approval ratings are inching back upwards as much of the electorate begins to see glimmers of hope in the economy. And if the election were held today, he would beat any one of them, according to the Real Clear...

    “When you boil it down to reality – there are only two questions that Florida voters are really concerned about” says C. EDMUND WRIGHT of Winning Our Future, a Super PAC supporting Newt Gingrich and other conservative causes. C. Edmund says, “Question one is: Who has shown a vision for defeating Barack Obama and other liberals? And question two is: Who can shake up Washington once Obama is defeated? Everything else is really just a distraction. “And the answer to both question is, without a doubt, Newt Gingrich,” Wright concluded. “Sometimes a campaign will take on a life of its...

Among the findings: 22% either filed for bankruptcy reorganization or closed their doors by the end of the eighth year after Bain first invested,...

    Moreover, as a political argument, how will Romney be able to employ our most potent weapon in a way that won’t be perceived as hypocritical? Try to imagine a general election debate over healthcare between Romney and Obama: Romney: “Obamacare is a disaster.” Obama: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. People outside of the exchange will be unaffected by the changes. Further, Mr. Romney, we actually got the ideas of subsidized healthcare exchanges and the individual mandate from you. Weren’t they pretty successful in Massachusetts?”

    As Ronald Reagan used to say: Well... Yesterday we took note of former Reagan State Department official Elliott Abrams' piece over at NRO that went after Newt Gingrich on his relationship with Reagan. While voting regularly with Reagan as a young congressman from Georgia, Gingrich, claimed Abrams, "often spewed insulting rhetoric at Reagan, his top aides and his policies to defeat Communism." Abrams then goes on to cite " a famous floor statement Gingrich made on March 21, 1986." Or sort of cites it. In fact, I'm sorry to say, what appears to be going on here is that Elliott...

    ........It is difficult to convey to NRreaders, much less to NewYorkTimes readers, just how astonished and annoyed the grassroots activists in Florida are. These are not people who hold party posts or are on LarrySabato’sRolodex as potential sources. They are the people who dropped what they were doing in 2010 and dashed off to the aid of their party in its hour of manifest need. They restored order to the public square, imposed clarity on the party message, sent a human wave of self-declared reformers to Tallahassee and Washington, and then said, with a sigh of relief, “There.You guys can...
