  • GOP Seeks to End Term Limits on House Speaker [Hastert Popularity]

    Hm... term-limiting leadership positions was the 'pubbies original work-around for not term-limiting members of Congress as per the Contract With America. Apparently the CWA is another one of those famous government deals that're binding only so long as they're convenient.

    This is outrageous! Hastert is a moderate who needs to move aside for the more conservative House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. We need a more principled Speaker of the House who will stand for conservative Republican principles and not cave to the RATS. This sounds more like the rank in file in the HRC are just happy not to have Newtie as a weapon to be wielded by the RATS to defeat them in the elections.
  • HI-02: Democrat Ed Case Wins Hawaii Election

    Democrats combined got over 78% of all votes cast. The GOP has no chance in Hawai'i on the Federal level. In fact, Gov. Linda Lingle would be considered a left-of-center Democrat in many states. The big surprise (for me) was the extremely poor showing for former Honolulu mayor Frank Fasi. He got a paltry 0.6% of votes cast. I think the GOP won't run anybody but sacrificial lambs from here on out. I also think Case has this seat for as long as he wants. Matsunaga might be able to pull off an upset primary victory in 2004 if he plays his hand right. Barring that, Case will be a lifer.

    My buddy finished in seventh place overall and in fourth place for GOP candidates. I told him the race was unwinnable, but did he listen? No. He is native Hawaiian so he thought he had a chance. He should have run in the original GOP primary race against Patsy Mink. He would have done a lot better. Once again the RATS captured 80-85% of the vote.

    What's with all these latin commies lately? Who dropped this ball?

    This Communist insurgent victory in Latin America's biggest and most powerful country has been a long time coming. Both Castro and Lula have worked hard to take control of Brazil, a nation which developed, but never tested two atomic bombs almost a decade ago. Brazil could convert its satellite booster rockets into ICBMs with relative ease. Can anyone say, Cuban missile crisis redux? The Bush Administration dropped the ball. Against the advice of much more farsighted Latin America specialists, the President opted for a policy of non-interference in the Brazilian presidential eleciton which virtually assured the Marxist takeover of Brazil. We will spend the next half century or more reaping the consequences of his lack of vision in failing to oppose Communism and choosing to appease and accomodate Communist dictators and regimes instead.

    For more insight into what the future holds for Brazil, please see the following articles.

    With Cuba and Venezuela now in commie hands, Brazil will now follow their lead and it's goodbye (adeus!) to Brazil and Latin America. Is the Admin even worried? I see nothing being done to counter this threat. Hells bells-- they haven't even addressed coherent ways to counter the huge invasion of illegals from Mexico! They seem to be asleep at the switch in DC, or am I wrong?

    You are not wrong. The Bush Admin is asleep at the switch. In addition to demoting Otto Reich from his position as Asst Secretary of State, they are pulling out the welcome mats for Lula's Red takeover. Of course, they remain supportive of the ongoing illegal immigrant invasion of the US and have announced plans to reward hundreds of thousands of them with social security benefits, a plan which would cost $1 billion a year.

    Of course, it goes unmentioned in this article that Lula is intent upon developing a nuclear weapons program for Brazil and has stated that publicly. I'm sure he is keeping a close eye on events in Korea. If we accept blackmail from the NKs it does not send a good message (for us) to the Lula's of the world.

    Of course once Lula develops nukes, that will just mean one more nuclear-armed Marxist dictatorship for us to appease with hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign aid a year just like North Korea. Here we are confronted with a potential new Cuban Missile Crisis in our own hemisphere and the Administration is reacting as if it were the inaugeration of just another democratically elected leftist president. They had better wake-up now and react to this dangerous situation before events overtake them.
  • Frist could be too nice for his new job

    I think Dr. Frist, a most attractive personality, will be primarily a "water carrier" for G.W. Bush. It will be like G.W. is not only president but Senate majority leader as well. I can never imagine Frist bucking Bush on anything. So if there is no partial-birth abortion ban voted by the Senate in either 2003 or 2004, it will be the fault of none other than G.W. Bush himself! (By the way Dr. Frist voted for Senator Gore in 1990!)

    Yes, Frist will rule the Senate as if he were a loyal member of the White House staff which will further increase the power being amassed by President Bush which has begun to worry me from a constitutional perspective even as one of his supporters. If Frist voted for Gore in 1990, that will torpedo his chances of winning the GOP presidential nomination in 2008, which given his pro-choice credentials is definitely a good thing for religious conservatives. The one good thing about Frist as Senate Majority Leader is that the Democrats will find it virtually impossible to demonize him. They'll have to use House Majority Leader Tom DeLay as their bogeyman in 2004.

    It was dispicable of the demRATS to have vented their electoral frustration onto Sen Lott in that manner. But I didnt think it was imaginable anyone more inclined to accept a bullseye on his back than Trent Lott, isnt this the one who allowed clinton to get away with chinagate by dealing away the impeachment? I dont know alot about frist but one thing I can see is that he is smart. Hopefully smart enough not to step in it like Lott did. As majority leader he is beholden to his peers to maintain the integrity of the conservative platform regardless of his personal bias. And his peers are beholden to the voters (THATS YOU AND ME) to demonstrate progress on the conservative agenda.

    Yes, Lott caved badly on the impeachment of Clinton and I criticized him for that. However, he was a reliable pro-life vote unlike Bill Frist who since declaring himself pro-choice on abortion on several occasions during his 1994 campaign has tried to be more stealthy in playing down his continued support for legalized abortion on demand to avoid alienating pro-life voters. Frist is admirable on a personal level. However, Frist's conservative credentials are essentially non-existant. He is a noted centrist who prefers to avoid confrontation which is not a quality conservatives look for in a GOP Senate Majority Leader. Conservatives need to hold him accountable if he continues betraying the conservative GOP agenda as expected. For more info along these lines, please see the following Frist expose that ran in WorldNetDaily a couple weeks ago.

    Bill Frist’s election as senate majority leader would be a stunning setback for pro-life conservatives

    Had they, some wondered, picked an admirable man for the wrong job?...Dr. Frist then suggested he was now embarking on an even ''heavier'' responsibility, implying that the Grand Old Party needs radical surgery.

    Frist announced that his mission was to establish a new bipartisan consensus in the Senate and essentially renounced confronting the RATs on issues of importance to GOP conservative base voters which was no surprise to those who have watched his Senate career. His new mission is to remake the once conservative Senate GOP in his own moderate image. Frist is the pro-choice moderate GOP leader Democrats have always wanted because he will work hard to pass Democrap legislation. He will be an absolute disaster as GOP majority leader with his anti-gun, pro-choice, pro-illegal immigration stands. Frist's inaugeration as Senate Majority Leader on January 7th will spell the death knell for conservatives in the Senate. Lott was much better and despite his verbal gaffes will be sorely missed as a more principled GOP leader, less inclined towards bipartisanship and collaboration with the RATS than his more moderate successor.

    N Korea is really making a lot of noise lately. Whatssup?

    They know that Bush won't do anything about their nuclear blackmail threats because he's too busy with his personal vendetta against Saddam who has no nukes. These North Korean nuke war threats must be really frustrating for Bush because they enable people to recognize how much bigger a threat North Korea is to the US with its nuclear ICBM's than relative non-threat, non-nuclear Iraq

    Amazing indeed. You are correct--South Yemen fell under Carter and North Yemen fell under Bush Sr. in 1990 when the South Yemenese took over the whole. They remain aligned with North Korea and the terrorist world to this day as demonstrated by the latest North Korean shipment of missiles to Yemen which was allowed by the US to reach its destination. Another cave by the Administration toward North Korea and the Yemenese.

    It was under Carter, am I not right, that more countries fell to communism than other any president since FDR?

    Actually, I think Truman beats Carter (and FDR) easy. Under Truman, all of the nations of Eastern Europe fell to Communism as did mainland China and North Korea which like Eastern Germany, Manchuria and northern Japan was awarded to the Soviets by FDR/Truman. Angola, Mozambique and South Vietnam fell to Communism under President Ford. Carter lost Nicaragua, Ethiopia, Afghanistan plus Iran to the ayatollahs. By any measure either in number of countries or in their combined population, Truman lost more to the Communists than any other US President.

    Not to mention his abject failure to capitalize on the opportunity to spank the Communists 1951 - 1953 by crossing the Yalu River and continuing right on to Beijing! Then was the time to assert ourselves, before the PRC had nukes. Since we missed that opportunity, naturally, not if, but when we go to war with the PRC, the US and West will suffer, at a minimum, tens of millions dead, and possibly, worst case, if the PRC are part of an anti-Western Axis, over 1 billion dead! Truman was the idiot I blame for what we will likely face in my lifetime!

    Most people fail to remember how very weak the Communist Chinese were militarily in 1950. You may recall that the main PLA weapon of the time was human wave tactics, because the only conceivable military advantage over the US they had was in terms of manpower. They remained much inferior in terms of weaponry. It was then that MacArthur talked of removing the US Seventh Fleet blockade in the Taiwan Straits and allow Chiang's Nationalist Army to reinvade southern China to pin them down and prevent their effective intervention in northern Korea.

    A two pronged invasion of China with the US landing in the north and the one million strong Nationalist Army landing in the south would have succeeded in liberating China from Mao and his butchers, but that is not necessarily what MacArthur was advocating. He just wanted to bomb the Chinese staging bases, railheads and bridges on the other side of the Yalu, which had he been allowed to do, the Chinese would have been unable to intervene in force to prevent the total collapse of their North Korean allies. I don't believe the West will suffer a billion dead, but I do believe that war between the US and a much strengthened nuclear PRC is inevitable and that millions of Americans may well pay the ultimate price for Truman's and Marshall's betrayal of over 600 million of our Free Chinese allies to the Communists.

    As I recall, it was the HST State Department that deliberately withheld supplies that Congress had voted for the Nationalist Chinese. This action, akin to treason under the later Iran-Contra rules, sealed the fate of the anti-communists in China. The State Department claimed that Chiang was "corrupt." Also many uninformed Americans and forgetful politicians (like Goldwater and Reagan) seemed to overlook the scandals that plagued the HST administration. And HST was the originator of the "no-win war." We are still paying the price for his poor Korean strategy. Even this week, North Korea is threatening to blow up the world. No, a reasonable reading of history refutes the greatness of HST. That is why I have never been "wild about Harry."

    Your historical analysis is exactly correct. In 1947, the Nationalists under Christian leader Chiang Kai Shek were in complete control of mainland China outside of Soviet occupied Manchuria which was being used as a base for the Soviets to arm and train Mao's Red Army for the next stage of the war. Then the Red Army invaded China once again and the US Congress voted to provide the Nationalist freedom fighters with $1 billion in direct military assistance. Truman refused to provide this aid for 11 months while the Free Chinese Armies were immobilized by pro-Communist General George C. Marshall's order to withhold all military and logistical assistance including fuel and ammunition. In fact, Marshall even ordered a lot of the weapons sent by Congress including tanks, artillery and aircraft dumped into the sea.

    As a result of Truman's and Marshall's treachery, Chiang's Christian led armies were routed by the godless Maoist hordes and mainland China was plunged into what has been 53 years of darkness which has exacted the toll of more than 60 million innocent Chinese murdered by the Butchers of Beijing who the US government under Bush Jr. continues to financially and diplomatically support in power. Finally, as you stated had Truman not fired MacArthur and refused to allow him to win the war in Korea and forestall ChiCom military intervention, over 30,000 American lives would have been spared and Korea would be united, democratic and free today. More importantly we would not be faced with incessant threats of nuclear war from a nuclear ICBM armed Communist North Korea today. As I stated, contrary to the whitewashed revisionist history books, Truman was an unmitigated disaster for US foreign policy and resistance to Communist agression worldwide.

    I have always thought HST was the most overrated of presidents. But it has been the Republicans who have helped to strengthen his reputation over the years. Goldwater cited HST as his favorite president even as HST was denouncing Goldwater and speaking out for LBJ and HHH. Reagan often quoted HST. I am unable to recall any Democrats extolling Dewey, though former Senator Paul Simon admitted that he voted for Dewey over HST. And when a Republican legislative leader extols Thurmond on his 100th birthday, all hell breaks loose. Remember, HST scolded Vice President Alben W. Barkley for waving at Thurmond as the 1949 inaugural parade passed the SC governor, standing with the spectators. HST called Thurmond an "SOB."

    Indeed, just like with FDR, it is Republican leaders who can be heard seeing the praises of Communist appeasers FDR and Truman. FDR and Truman not only brought us Communist China, Communist North Korea, Communist Vietnam, and Communist Eastern Europe and a superpower Soviet Union, but brought us quite a bit of socialist programs at home whether it was FDR's New Deal or Truman's Fair Deal. Why? Probably just pandering to the socialist Communist appeaser vote which they must think remains strong in America today. Truman scolded Thurmond as an SOB? Well, that goes far to increase Thurmond's reputation in my opinion.

    Your conjecturing is specious. No one wanted troops in China right after WWII. Thurmond would have been a disaster in more ways than one. Do you think HE would have integrated the armed forces? Truman was one of the few excellent Dem presidents.

    On the contrary, my indictment of Truman is well-supported by historical fact. Kindly read "America's Retreat from Victory" by renowned anti-Communist Joseph McCarthy. Further, there was no need for US troops in China after WWII except as military advisors/liaisons. Of course, I know that Thurmond was unacceptable as the segregationist he was. I'm just saying that he would have pursued a far better foreign policy than the disasterous Democrat President Truman. JFK, for all his faults, was a far better foreign policy President than Truman. He built up our nuclear triad and maintained US nuclear superiority over the Soviets.

    Truman's reputation as a tough guy was sealed the day he ordered the atomic bomb dropped. Nothing will ever change that.

    Yes, Truman did a fine job of killing a couple thousand innocent Japanese civilians by atomic means and thus joined Stalin, Mao, and various Italian mafia dons in earning a well-deserved reputation as a "tough guy." However, his policies in regards to the Communist threat were nothing short of disasterous. The loss of 600,000 of our Free Chinese allies to the Communist hordes was the result of Truman's treacherous sabotage of Chiang Kai Shek's Free Chinese Nationalists.

    If not for Give ‘Em Hell Harry, we might have lost the Cold War at the outset.

    Not true. Harry Truman nearly lost the Cold War for us at the outset by sabotaging our Free Chinese Christian led Kuomantang allies and thereby ensuring a takoever of mainland China by Mao's Red Army in 1949. Then, he fired General Douglas MacArthur for wanting to win the Korean war. Plus, Truman gave the Russkies Northern Korea, northern Japan and Manchuria in the first place. The short story is that there would be no Communist China or Communist North Korea today without Harry Truman or a Communist appeaser like him. Thurmond would have come into office too late to rout the initial ChiCom takeover of mainland China, but he could have helped the Nationalists retake it over and win the war in Korea using the MacArthur Plan.

    On what do you base your assertion that a guy with a perfect "100" rating from National Right to Life is "pro-choice?" Other than his participating in home-state courtesy on the Satcher and Foster nominations on a position with no policy-making authority whatsoever?

    NRLC ratings of 100% and endorsements are regularly given out to openly pro-choice Republicans like Kay Bailey Hutchison (who recently came under heavy attack and was booed by the Texas GOP state convention grassroots attendees for her pro-choice stands) and George Allen (who stated during a debate with Chuckie Robb during the 2000 campaign that he supports abortion on demand only during the first two months of pregnancy) yet they too were given 100% scores by National Right to Life Committee. How do you explain this?

    Furthermore, National Right to Life Committee endorsed a couple of other openly pro-abortion candidates this past election season including Doug Forrester in New Jersey. NRLC used to be more principled and pro-life like when they "slammed" Bill Frist in 1995 for championing the Clinton nominations of radical partial birth abortion proponents Henry Foster and David Satcher who each were known to have committed hundreds of abortions, a fact which Frist said should not be a reason for denying their nominations. Satcher was so extreme, he is stepping down due to his opposition to Bush's drive for abstinence education.

    Don't you love the way these articles are phrased? I tend to go back and inject their real meaning in these puff pieces.

    "As a result, some Republicans(code word for liberal RINOS) think Frist could help the party (become identical to the liberals) close the historic Democratic advantage on health care issues much the way Bush's (throwing his education plan overboard and stuffing Teddie's toe in his mouth) education initiatives - such as the education reform law of 2001 - have narrowed the gap between the parties on that front. (Yeah, gotta narrow that gap until the party is fully as socialist as the Democrats and makes itself unneccessary)

    See how fun that is?


    As always, you are exactly correct. Just about every health care reform bill now under consideration is a socialist powergrab to one extent or another. With few exceptions, they would amount to nothing more than "Hillary-Clinton lite" health insurance reform. Given Frist's moderate record on this and other issues, I am sure that his plan will be no exception.

Those two issues are the very definition of whether someone is pro-life. If they support a ban even with exceptions, they are pro-life. If they do not support a ban and say that they support a woman's right to choose as Frist has, then they are pro-choice, irrespective of what Frist's offices says. Frist's own words clearly reveal his pro-choice position. For specific cites and examples, please see the following article posted on WorldNetDaily:

    Look out for centrist Sen. Frist to pass a socialist health care bill of rights which will cause another major hike in the insurance premiums of all Americans forcing millions more Americans to drop their coverage. Passing another high-regulation health care bill is reportedly his top priority for the 107 Congress.

    "Since Lott came from the conservative wing of the party, the expectation to perform was much higher."

    This article has been overtaken by events. The Senate Majority Leader race has been conclusively decided in favor of pro-choice centrist Bill Frist. While conservatives rightly had high expectations for Lott, they have no reason to be optimistic about Bill Frist for which conservatives have decidedly low expectations.

    Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.), a heart-lung transplant surgeon President Bush affectionately calls "Fristy."

    So, it sounds like George Allen was one of the coup leaders. Fristy? Well, at least its better than Bush's affectionate nick-name for former KGB director and current Russian President Vladimir Putin. He calls Putin "Pootie-poot" which seems to indicate a tremendous naivity on his part regarding what Putin represents as a KGB operative trying to restore Russian control over the former Soviet Union and as an ally of Communist China against America.

    Two more conservative leaders expressing support for pro-life conservative Rick Santorum against pro-choice moderate Bill Frist...I have always admired David Keene of the ACU. He can almost always endorses the conservative candidate like when he strongly supported Senator Bob Smith against Johnny Sununu. He's not shying away from the contraversy with Frist either. Weyrich's the conscience of the GOP and is always a strong source of conservative insight.

    A senator who has spoken to Frist cautioned, however, that Frist's candidacy could be hurt by a perception that he may be too close to the White House. "They don't want a senator who's a yes-man for the president and Rove over here," said the senator, referring to top White House political adviser Karl Rove.

    Frist is a Karl Rove clone. He WILL be the Administration's yes man in the Senate as we move toward the old Soviet Supreme Soviet rubber stamp parliament model of governance in the US Senate.

    Frist is pro-choice? I keep hearing this one slung around, and I never seem to get specific data to support it.

    Be patient. I am going to post a very compelling indictment of Frist probably later today with about ten different news cites of Frist's pro-choice comments. Unfortunately for me, Lott's resignation takes a lot of the air out of my sails as no conservative has announced against Frist yet. Hopefully soon, but I'm not holding my breath. I will try to remember to ping you on it. Otherwise keep an eye on the front page section later today and early tommorow.

    Frist being described in media reports as a "moderate" and likely Lott replacement. He's getting almost Jeffordsesque support from the media elite. The GOP does NOT need a "moderate" to counter Daschle and company. We need someone with cajones.

    Exactly, Chris Matthews of Hardball fame just delivered a very enthusiastic statement in support of Bill Frist, who he knows is considerably closer to the RATS on the issues like abortion, immigration and gun rights than Trent Lott. Very sad day for conservatives if Frist is not defeated by a conservative Senator for the Senate Majority Leader position. Frist lacks the cajones to face or fight the RATS. Daschle will run circles around him probably even more so than he did with Lott.

    It is a token of the current environment among Senate Republicans that saying the obvious should constitute an act of courage. But so it is. And whatever happens with Nickles, whether he runs and whether he wins, at this time conservatives simply owe him two words: Thank you.

    Don Nickles--man of courage, but in retrospect you should have let Frist take point and take the first shot because now we face a much greater threat to the conservative cause--pro-choice Bill Frist as Senate Majority Leader

    Thank you for posting this. Pro-life Christian conservatives need to unite and move very quickly to oppose Bill Frist for Senate Majority Leader because of his newly revealed pro-choice stand on abortion!

    Call your Senators today and urge them to support pro-life Senator Trent Lott for Senate Majority Leader! If Frist takes over the Senate leadership job, the pro-life cause will take a serious setback.

    LOL! Please by all means do so. Your childish rants and threats don't bother me in the least. As you can see, your hate-filled liberal posts against me have made me even bolder in my writings against you and your fellow leftwing ignoramouses. The conservative cause may have lost this battle for Senate Majority Leader, but conservatives like me will never stop supporting bona-fide pro-life conservative heroes like Sens. Nickles, Kyl and Inhofe no matter what you CINOs say to try to discourage us.

    But as I have said before there will not be a conservative ML in my lifetime, nor ever, unless we come under a full scale attack, or a war so broad the people demand it.

    Well, it looks like you are right. My biggest fault is my eternal optimism that conservatives will be able to recapture the GOP sometime soon let alone in my lifetime. I think I'd do better becoming more of a realist and a pessimist like you. This latest moderate coup against the conservative contender for SML proves me wrong and you right. Why I thought conservatives could pull it off, I'll never know. There are too many Commie-libs and squishy centrists on this thread attacking me for hoping against all hope that it could happen.

    One thing I've noticed about people like RW2, is that it's like they don't want G. Bush to be against abortion! I don't know if that's the case, but they don't want him to have credit for anything conservative!

    Not very nice to lie about a fellow Mormon or perhaps you are a non-member? If so, I don't blame you for your dishonesty. I desperately want Bush to support the pro-life cause and believed he might once elected, but he has consistantly disappointed me. I am not speculating here. The news reported that Bush/Rove held a conference call to try to halt the partial birth abortion ban effort.
