    Bucks County Courier Times ^ | 21 MAY 2017 | JD Mullane
    It came as a thunderclap. A college friend, a fair-minded liberal, did the unthinkable: He walked away from the Democratic Party, publicly declaring his disgust on social media. The election of Larry Krasner — the anti-cop defense lawyer — as the Democratic Party’s nominee for Philadelphia district attorney was the last straw. His post: “That did it. After 30 years of voting as a Democrat, I am no longer a member of that party ... The national Dems failed to clean house after admitting they fixed the presidential primary. And the local Dems just let George Soros buy the Philly...
  • Schumer warns of government shutdown over border wall funding

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Democrats will not vote for a must-pass government funding bill next month if it includes money for construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. "That will not stand," Schumer, D-N.Y., warned Monday in a Senate floor speech. "It would be inappropriate in our judgement to insist on the inclusions of such funding in a must-pass appropriations bill that is needed by the Republican majority to avoid a government shutdown." A short-term funding measure expires in April.
  • DNC Chair Brazile Flips Her Wig; Accuses President Trump of Hacking DNC Emails, Voter Intimidation

    True Pundit ^ | Feb 25, 2017 | Admin.
    Strong words today from DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile, who has been in hiding since she was busted twice feeding questions to Hillary Clinton before the 2016 presidential debates. But Spring is in the air, prompting even the lowest of Democratic reptilians from crawling out from their Winter safe spaces. Brazile wasted no time picking a fight with the Trump administration, all caught on camera during an epic meltdown that was absent any merit whatsoever. But why let reality and facts get in the way of a good rant? Video at link...
  • Tom Perez: ‘White People NOT Entitled to Protection Under Voting Rights Act’

    New DNC Chair, Tom Perez, fits right in with the values of the Democratic party, especially when it comes to victimizing minorities and labeling white people as privileged. An investigation into Perez revealed extreme views he holds according to A Review of the Operations of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division conducted by the Office of the Inspector General Oversight and Review Division in March of 2013. Perez told investigators that white people were not entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act according to a report from the Washington Free Beacon.

    The only people who are angered by the decision to make Tom Perez the next DNC chair are the Democrats. Republicans are actually very happy that he was selected for the position although they would have been just as happy with Keith Ellison because both candidates ensure the Republicans are going to gain even more ground over the next few years as both are terrible candidates.

    Townhall ^ | 05/03/2016 | Walter Williams
    Republican presidential aspirant John Kasich stirred up angry words from women's organizations and the Democratic Party by his response to a question from a female college student at a town hall meeting in Watertown, New York, regarding sexual assault. Kasich said all the right things about prosecuting offenders, but what got the Ohio governor in trouble with leftists was the end of his response: "I'd also give you one bit of advice: Don't go to parties where there's a lot of alcohol, OK? Don't do that." Let's examine that advice. To do so, let's ask some general questions about common...

    Hot Air ^ | March 2, 2016 | Taylor Millard
    American voters are angry. They see both parties as corrupt, unstable organizations which care nothing about their constituents, and only about staying in power. Voters see the parties only interested in handing out favors to their rich friends, and not doing things which would help everyone. They’re doing their best Bruce Banner imitation by turning into The Populist Hulk after warning politicians, “You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry,” for years. This isn’t just Republicans flocking to Donald Trump, but Democrats seeing Bernie Sanders as a possible alternative to Hillary Clinton (super delegates aside). Voter angst isn’t anything new, but...

    As the nation begins the process of electing a new president, the roles of the Republican and Democratic parties are undergoing fundamental shifts that are threatening their impact on both elections and policy. Built in the 19th century, grown dominant in the 20th, they are largely out of date in this new age.

    In last week's thread, V K Lee was thinking about Super Bowl food; and I think that's a good idea for our thread this week. I don't have a 'dog in the hunt' this year - in fact, I don't even follow football much, unless the Redskins or the Maryland Terrapins are getting hot. But I've decided on South Carolina for my annual bet with my husband - I have some ancestral connections there, and one of my favorite, football-obsessed co-workers wants to see a Panther win. So, I'm re-posting my favorite 'finger food', this week, along with some other...
  • GOP: Planned Parenthood wasted millions on 'lavish' travel, parties

    The Hill ^ | 09/29/2015 | By Sarah Ferris and Anna Primosch
    The head of the House Oversight Committee is accusing Planned Parenthood of misspending more than $40 million of federal dollars on “lavish” travel, theme parties and a costly Manhattan office. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) on Tuesday accused the organization of racking up “exorbitant travel expenses,” including first-class flights, charter travel and entertainment costs that included $622,706 on “blowout parties” with celebrity guests. Some of the themed parties had names such as “Gathering of Goddesses and Gods,” “Chocolate Champagne,” and “Murder Mystery,” according to a report released by the committee during the hearing Tuesday. The findings were the results of a...

    Ruth Provencal was terminated last month for saying “God bless you” to voters and other forms of “electioneering,” Renee Routhier, chairman of Derry’s Supervisors of the Checklist, said Saturday.“We have to be politically correct at the polls; I can’t allow certain things to go on because it falls under electioneering,” Routhier said.

    Illinois Review ^ | November 3, 2014 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    This election presents tough choices for some voters. Many are upset that the Republican Party hasn’t formally enunciated its core principles, properly nationalizing the election in a simple, coherent way. The national GOP has, instead, settled for letting it be a traditional midterm, a referendum on the policies of that man in the White House and the party that unconditionally, unquestioningly, supports his every act. And yes, for many voters, that may well be enough. But for those voters who would like a clear presentation of the difference between the modern Democrat Party and the Republican opposition, that difference can...
  • New Gallup poll shows Americans want third political party participation

    Examiner ^ | 9-24-14 | Karl Dickey
    A new Gallup poll out this morning, September 24, 2014, found that 58% of Americans strongly want a third political party choice in the candidates because the two older parties "do such a poor job" representing the people. This number is little changed from a Gallup poll asking the same question in 2007. The third largest political party is the Libertarian Party, yet its candidates face unfair hurdles of ballot access and media exclusion. Many states in the nation purposely raise the bar for Libertarian Party candidates to have their name printed on the ballot alongside the Republican and Democratic...
  • Small Tent or Big Tent? - Why political parties are missing the larger picture

    Capitol Confidential ^ | 9/1/2014 | Jack Spencer
    An analogy used to describe the extent to which a political party is exclusive or inclusive is whether or not it is a “big tent” or a “small tent.” This analogy is most commonly employed in reference to the Republican Party. In essence, the terms “big tent” and “small tent” are used to describe the width and depth of a party’s political appeal. When the Republican Party is said to be a “small tent,” the intimation is that the political positions it holds represent too narrow a segment of the voting public. Frequently this accusation is accompanied by a list...

    The term “paramountcy of the party” is often touted by totalitarian regimes in which the government and its bureaucrats are solely comprised of members of a single party. The ruling class is comprised entirely of party members, the elites are party members, the military is a wholly owned subsidiary of the party, in every facet of life the favored are members of the party; the party is the state. Whatever other options there are, they are there simply for show and few of the members ever dare to oppose their oppressive regimes. One needs to only look at the history...

    Atlas Shrugs ^ | May7 2014 | Pamela Geller
    Ain’t multiculturalism just grand? This from the country that banned Robert Spencer and me from entering and speaking against this vicious misogyny. Female genital mutilation (FGM) or clitoridectomy is an Islamic tradition, rampant in the Muslim world. Over 96% of the women in Egypt have been clitoridectomized. Back in 2008, devout members of the Egyptian parliament have made female genital mutilation (circumcision) legal again in Egypt. This has become a pressing issue here in America. The American Academy of Pediatrics proposed a resolution to begin to practice this barbaric mutilation in a multicultural, dhimmi effort — a “nick,” as it...

    The United States Congress does not work for us. As in you and me. I have come to this somber conclusion after reading enough articles, blogs, facts, and budget numbers to make an actuary cross-eyed. And I feel more at peace now because I can say “wow, that explains a lot. That explains everything.” I won’t inflict blindness on you by citing every possible statistic here. Here’s a few: ⁃ Starting Congressional Base Salary $174,000 ⁃ Average First Year Attorney Salary - Washington DC: $160,000 ⁃ Total Congressional Pay + Expenses (not including office expenditures): $233,000,000 ⁃ Estimated Total Campaign...
