    The GOP elite are desperate to maintain power and theyíll gladly destroy the party, if not the country, before they allow Donald Trump to be elected President of the United States In November, Americans will elect either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton as President. All minor party candidates as well as an upstart ďconservativeĒ alternative to Donald Trump have no prayer of victory. Any Republican or conservative who does not support the GOP nominee might as well join former liberal Connecticut Republican Congressman Chris Shays and formally endorse Hillary Clinton. There are many groups of Republicans who are aiding and...

    MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. ‚ÄĒ Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Monday that the Republican party is breaking its pledge to stay neutral while pouncing on GOP rivals who attacked him at a weekend debate. ‚ÄúI have never met people like politicians. They are the most dishonest people I have ever met,‚ÄĚ the New York billionaire said during a stop at Mount Pleasant hotel on Monday. ‚ÄúThey lie, lie, lie and then they apologize.‚ÄĚ Trump suggested that the Republican National Committee was not honoring a pledge to not hurt his campaign if the businessman promised not to mount a third-party presidential...

    Conservatives seem to be split in their opinions. Some think heís a goofball, a blowhard and an idiot. Others view him as a serious contender unafraid to tackle the proverbial herd of elephants in the room. So why is ďThe DonaldĒ resonating with folks in Flyover Country? Simple. We elected a majority of Republicans in Congress in 2014; and what did they do? They betrayed our trust and our wishes, and immediately caved to the presidentís progressive agenda. We didnít like that. Republicans have a lot to answer for to the people. They promised to ďget toughĒ on a variety...

    A Mississippi man who accused the Thad Cochran campaign of paying African-Americans to vote for the senator in his primary runoff last month is walking back his story. Stevie Fielder told California-based blogger Charles C. Johnson he was asked to buy votes for $15 a pop in the June 24 runoff between Cochran and state Sen. Chris McDaniel. Now, he's saying he never paid anyone to vote, saying the conversations he claimed he had with Cochran campaign staffers Kirk Sims and Amanda Shook were "hypothetical" and the interview with Johnson was edited.

    According to the work of Charles C. Johnson and Joel S. Gilbert, what we thought was just a racist campaign to get people out to vote in the Cochran vs McDaniel Mississippi Senate race was the tip of the iceberg. It now appears to be a vote buying scandal right out of the office of Thad Cochran himself: Reverend Stevie Fielder, associate pastor at historic First Union Missionary Baptist Church and former official at Meridianís redevelopment agency, says he delivered ďhundreds or even thousands,Ē of blacks to the polls after being offered money and being assured by a Cochran campaign...

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) failed to congratulate or even acknowledge Dave Brat in his concession speech last night. Neither did Cantor offer Brat his support in November's general election against his Democratic opponent, or call Brat to concede the race, according to Brat. "Cantor's concession speech did not mention Dave once," Brat's campaign manager Zach Werrell noted to Breitbart News.

    I am not naÔve enough to believe that having elected Mitt Romney president or consigning the Democrats to the minority in both houses of Congress would change all that. But unless you are ready to give up on electoral politics entirely ó and I confess to wavering on that question with a bias toward despair ó then it is a matter of deciding whether X is preferable to Y. And sometimes that is a pretty easy call. Contemplating the inevitable shortcomings of elected Republicans, conservatives may consider the situation and think: ďThe lesser of two evils is still evil.Ē And...

    Senator Jeff Sessions argues that the GOP elite view on immigration--shared by President Barack Obama and Senator Chuck Schumer--is "nonsense.".....The Sessions memo begins, "The GOP needs to flip the immigration debate on its head. The same set of GOP strategists, lobbyists, and donors who have always favored a proposal like the Gang of Eight immigration bill argue that the great lesson of the 2012 election is that the GOP needs to push for immediate amnesty and a drastic surge in low-skill immigration.."....

    The effort to stop the further implementation of Obamacare that Utahís principled limited government constitutional conservative Republican Senator Mike Lee got rolling is starting to gather steam at the grassroots, with conservative commentator and talk radio superstar Mark Levin, the Club for Growth, Heritage Action and Freedom Works all weighing-in to support of Leeís effort. Yet the Senate Republican leadership, especially Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, have been using every behind the scenes tactic they can muster to spike the effort of conservatives to defund Obamacare. This ainít rocket science, all it takes, as Senator Lee observed, is for Republicans to...
  • National Review Online: The Cruz Birthers

    42-year-old Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, to an American mother and a Cuban father. By dint of his motherís citizenship, Cruz was an American citizen at birth. Whether he meets the Constitutionís requirement that the president of the United States be a ďnatural-born citizen,Ē a term the Framers didnít define and for which the nationís courts have yet to offer an interpretation, has become the subject of considerable speculation. Snip~ Legal scholars are firm about Cruzís eligibility. ďOf course heís eligible,Ē Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz tells National Review Online. ďHeís a natural-born, not a naturalized, citizen.Ē Eugene Volokh,...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush Tuesday described the growing economic chasm between rich and poor as "un-American" and called it the biggest "structural" problem facing the nation on Tuesday. "Going forward, we have to deal with our longer structural problems. The biggest one, as far as I'm concerned, is that we're no longer socially mobile as a country," Bush said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. "You have people that are born poor and there's a higher and higher probability that they're going to stay poor. And you have people that are born rich and there's a greater probability that they'll...

    Every Republican knows another Republican who agrees with them on 99% of the issues, yet will attack them relentlessly over the 1% of issues they disagree upon. Instead of uniting against the left, these busybodies waste countless hours criticizing other Republicans. They will frequently do it under the ruse of being the ďtrue conservatives,Ē claiming that anyone who does not agree with them is not conservative enough. Yet the 1% of issues they disagree with others on are often arbitrarily decided and not legitimate issues. Mitt Romney was criticized for being too moderate of a Republican presidential candidate, yet he...

    The internal battle for the direction of the Republican Party has enveloped Washingtonís GOP consultant class, as pragmatic party strategists hired to win campaigns ponder how to reclaim control of the primary process from powerful conservative activist groups. This developing conflict comes in the aftermath of consecutive election cycles that saw Republicans blow as many as five Senate races because the party nominated flawed candidates over those who were better suited to compete in the general election. Some of these losing 2010 and 2012 nominees received crucial support from Washington-based tea party groups that made their primary campaigns viable. GOP...
  • Forget Tea Party Candidates, We Need Birther Candidates (Vanity)

    12/08/2012 8:13:39 AM PST · by kreitzer · 41 replies
    The GOP-e was shaken by the Tea Partyers a couple years back, but fought back and succeeded in pushing the Tea Partyers/Palin backers out of the convention and nominating their man Romney. But the Tea Partyers had some success, like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Who's to say a few well placed Birther candidates couldn't have some success? If we could field a few Birther candidates who promise to make the ineligibility of the current Commander-in-Chief a central issue, even if only one of them gets through the system it will be a 100% gain for conservatives. Simply...

    A lot of people who were against us "birthers" said the issue was nonsense, and a distraction, and that we should quit wasting time on it because "we have to defeat Barack Obama at the ballot box." As a person who saw how the media swindled us out of the 2008 election, I never took it as a given that we would be ABLE to defeat Obama at the ballot box. Why would the media not do the same thing to us in 2012? Given that the election fraud perpetrated by Democrats had been taken to an entirely new level...

    So will the GOP and Conservative Inc. concede that joining the Left in ridiculing birthers and actively participating in the cover up of Obama's past was a failing strategy? All this time they could not even bring themselves to ask if Obama was ever a citizen of Indonesia. Will they concede that living in fear of being called racist by Candy Crowley is a losing strategy. I doubt it.

    The domestic violence in Shepardís past is both shocking and repulsive in detail. On February 15, 1998, police were called to then-Mrs. Shepardís house (the couple had been separated since June of the previous year) by a girlfriend. According to the police report (.pdf file), Mrs. Shepard said of her husband: Read on. Joseph entered my home. I told him to leave. He came up to me looking angry. I put my hands up to protect my breasts as they are sore (cancer). He has hit me before in the breast. He grabbed my wrist and arm and pushed me...

    Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Nev.) said Monday he ďstill has a very high opinion of Chief Justice John Roberts," despite Roberts opinion upholding the individual mandate in Obamacare as constitutional. Hatch, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee and a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had been one of the earliest and most forceful voices in the Senate speaking out against the constitutionality of the individual mandate when it was first proposed in 2009. On Monday, however, Hatch told CNSNews.com that Roberts ďcertainly had the rightĒ to rule that the mandate is constitutional as a tax. ďNaturally, I...
