  • Is Sarah Palin a McCain-Republican?

    Charlie Crist has taking to calling himself a McCain-Republican in his Florida race against Marco Rubio of late. Apparently, he sees a similarity between himself and Scott Brown. I'll have to admit, calling ones self a McCain-Republican sounds better than simply calling yourself a RINO.

    This is a singular question that could be asked of any politician. It really makes no political sense for a popular politician who has ambitions for higher public office to endorse anyone during a primary. The reason being, no matter who you endorse, you are going to lose support from the opposing side.

    "Palin told Facebook followers that she’s going to 'ride the tide with commonsense candidates' and help 'heroes and statesmen' like McCain." The message McCain is now bringing forth to his cohorts in the Republican Party leadership with the Brown victory in Massachusetts is, "See, I told you so. Moderate Republicanism can win. All we need do to totally usurp those conservative wackos in the Tea Party movement is tell them our candidate is a "conservative" and they will do the rest -- oh, and make sure other grassroot conservatives who get in our way in the primaries are out spent...

    I have re-posted Don Mashak's Eight-Point Political Platform, while adding two more, 9 & 10. I will be adding an eleventh point soon, which will take away the power of the executive branch of government, or the legislature branch, to print money without the consent of the electorate. There will be an exemption in cases of an emergency, perhaps a two/thirds vote of Congress.

    On January 1, 2010, I received an email message from Janet & Norman, members of the American Re-Tea Party, group: "The RIGHT Movement". In short, they want to send a powerful message to the political establishment by sending all 435 incumbent House members -- the good, the bad, and the ugly -- packing in the 2010 elections, as well as all 33 incumbent Senators.

    "The local Republican leadership tapped state Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava to run in the special election. She seemed to them a good fit for the moderate district but was out of step with national Republicans, supporting both abortion rights and same-sex marriage. Nonetheless, she enjoyed the backing of the national party and, among others, former House speaker Newt Gingrich. "

    Tea partiers, town-hall protesters, Texas secessionists--for the past few months, grassroots organizing has seemed to be mostly the domain of the right. And for a period this summer, they (okay, not the Texas secessionists, but the others) appeared to be successfully tugging the national debate in their direction. As conservative activists, organized by groups such as FreedomWorks and encouraged by the likes of Glenn Beck, poured into the streets, moderate senators began to waver on health care, President Obama's approval ratings dipped, and momentum for reform seemed to stall.

    As Pakistan forces begin to squeeze Taliban forces up against the Afghan border, the Pakistani press wonders where U.S. and U.N. Afghan forces are to block the Afghan border crossings. Now I am not a military expert but it seems to me the attack in Afghanistan a few weeks ago that killed eight Americans, and from which, I beleieve, they abandoned that post afterwards, just might be related.

But recently I have been debating this point with a fellow blogger at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution under at article by Jay Bookman, entitled: Birthers aren’t conservative, they’re just nutty, who maintains that, in fact, Maya Soetoro didn't actual say that. It was actually written by a student, Bennett Guira, who wrote it as part of his Obama bio assay, and the quote was later picked up and erronisously attributed to Maya Soetoro.

    Communists and socialists have never been closer to taking over the United States and they know this is no time for timidity. Ignoring popular opinion is part of the game plan, as is marginalizing any opposition. It worked for three massive spending bills and it will work again. Some Democrats may lose their seats, but taking a hit for the party is a call to duty they will answer. Besides, as long as they control Congress post 2010, Democrats will control redistricting as a consequence of the census and the lost seats may be regained in 2012."

    Generally in any court proceeding, especially in preliminary hearings, I have always found it useful to listen to what the judge says. In the Tuesday hearing concerning Obama's eligibility, Judge Carter stated that if there are legitimate constitutional questions regarding Obama's eligibility, they need to be addressed and resolved. So the question is: Are there any legitimate constitutional questions regarding Obama's eligibility, and, if so; what are they?

    Back in February of this year, while reeling from the latest national electoral defeat, the GOP held a series of GOP TEC summits to essentially revamp the GOP web site. One of the speakers that offered the most forward thinking on this subject, in my opinion, was Newt Gingrich. Click here to go to the video of what he said. Please note, while everything Mr. Gingrich said had value, his point about the design of the new GOP website starts at Time: 7:22 and runs to the end of the video.

    The Next Right likes to bill itself as a website where the new Republican ideology is being forged. It is largely made up of RINOs, corporatist and Independents, all masquerading as conservative Republicans. Since I have had a long experience with just how the corporatist have taken over the Republican Party, I naturally began to call them out on this point. I explained to the readers at The Next Right that the corporatist are, indeed, a very valuable asset of the Republican Party, but their political agenda, since it's really not interested in lowering taxes, lowering government spending, or even...

    I'll give it to you in one word: Independents. If House Democrats want to avoid losing 20 seats in 2010, they know they will have to fight and hold on to as many Independents as possible, period. Lose them and they will lose the House, it's just that simple, and they know it. Thus the creation here of late in the mainstream press of the local militia and Nazi memes. It's an old political trick. Fanaticize the right with a bogus militia scare, throw in a couple of swastikas and watch the Independents stream back into the fold. So get...

Most Democrats know Barack Obama can't meet the provisions of Article ll, Section l, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution, or at least aren't sure whether he can or not.Rather than go all over the issues again, let's just go to Congressman Bill Posey's bill: The Presidential Eligibility Act (H.R. 1503) Here's my point: Most people are shocked when they learn there is no formal qualification process to run for the President of the United State, once the most powerful position in the world.
