  • (Exempt) Dems call GOP Homeland Security strategy a political blunder

    WASHINGTON — Democrats are losing some skirmishes over the Department of Homeland Security, but many feel they are winning a political war that will haunt Republicans in 2016 and beyond. Democrats lacked the votes Friday to force Republicans to fund the department for a year with no strings. Still, even some Republicans say party leaders are on a perilous path with a very public ideological struggle only highlighting the GOP's inability to pass contested legislation and possibly worsening its weak relationship with Hispanic voters. Worst of all, numerous lawmakers said, Republican leaders have offered no plausible scenario for a successful...

    What Will It Take? By Roseann Salanitri on February 11, 2015 in Pro Life & Family, RoseAnn Salanitri 18 With the realization that the United States of America has suffered a soft coup dÂ’Ă©tat, comes the question: what will it take? What will it take to restore the Constitutional Republic that once protected our god-given rights from liars, despots, and traitors? And the second question is: if not now, when?Do we wait until our open borders have allowed in our enemies and suicide bombers are around every corner? Do we wait until our military is so downgraded that our local...

    Most armed robbers are reluctant to shoot.   There can be many reasons for this, including additional scrutiny from the authorities, drawing attention to the crime in progress, even a reluctance to inflict harm.   Often, this will give the victim an opportunity to feign compliance in order to gain an advantage. It happened in this case in Florida yesterday, the 22nd of January, 2015.  The victim in this case was Fabian Rosario.  He is a surveyor who was working with a colleague on a land survey when he was approached by a suspect who pulled a gun and demanded money. ...

    In years past, this column has urged conservative Republicans in Congress to shut down the federal government as a way to counter some of the hardline policies and stare down some of the more uncompromising positions taken by President Obama. But the current row that's brewing among congressional Republicans is a different matter. Debate is raging about a proposed continuing resolution to fund the government, instead of passing a regular budget that would allow new funding for the assimilation of millions of illegal immigrants. This potential GOP strategy could easily turn growing support for the Republicans into opposition. Don't get...

    (P) resident Obama came into office in 2009, telling the American people he would end the wars against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. Six years later, facing a broader and more lethal terrorist threat, he is now telling us why we need to go to war again. To say Obama can't seem to make up his mind in the war on terrorism (a designation his administration stopped using the day he entered the Oval Office), is putting it mildly. If anything, his naive plan of withdrawal and retreat and the way it was carried out in the face of a...

    Those people who say that President Obama has no clear vision and no clear strategy for dealing with the Islamic State terrorists in the Middle East may be mistaken. It seems to me that he has a very clear and very consistent strategy. And a vision behind that strategy. First, the strategy — which is to get each crisis off the front pages and off television news programs as quickly as he can, in whatever way he can, at the lowest political cost. Calling the Islamic State junior varsity months ago accomplished that goal. Saying before the 2012 elections that...

    The nature of the threat the Islamic State poses to the West is a subject of much debate. Some indicate that the group is planning to execute attacks in the West at its nearest opportunity, while others say that the organization has designs only on capturing and holding territory in its neighborhood – and that’s a range of confused opinions coming from former and current administration officials. While there is a robust debate over whether ISIS is planning to execute terrorist attacks against Western targets, there should be no debate that the origination is actively seeking the capability to...

    The State Department claimed Wednesday that they have been “looking at” developing a long-term strategy to fight ISIL in both Iraq and Syria for a year. The United States has stressed repeatedly that its current limited missions in Iraq against ISIL are not long-term solutions. “We are looking long-term at how we fight ISIL,” said State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf. Asked by a reporter to clarify, Harf said, “We’ve been looking at that for quite some time. That’s not new.” “We’ve been looking at that for months and months, even before the latest offenses that started in June against Mosul...

    U.S. Generals Douglas MacArthur and George Patton were two of the most brilliant military minds in the history of modern warfare. Under their commands, American forces in Europe and the Far East decimated hundreds of thousands of enemy soldiers, making way for freedom in countries previously ruled by evil tyrants, and preserving our way of life at the same time. An essential element of their strategic approach to warfare was the knowledge that when an enemy is attacking on more than one front, you cannot rely on a single weapon or plan of attack; you must fight with as...

    n recent years, the Republican Party has increasingly been described as a shrinking entity dominated by angry white males and southerners. But the problem for the Democrats is that Southern states will likely determine control of the U.S. Senate in this year's elections. Four of the seven seats listed as Senate "tossups" by the polling gurus at RealClearPolitics are in the South -- North Carolina, Louisiana, Kentucky and Arkansas. Republican wins in these four states would deliver the magic number required for the GOP to take majority control of the Senate. In North Carolina, Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan is currently...

Yet, the Administration is out there touting it as "high-quality" insurance and everything else as "substandard". Why aren't the GOP challenging this?

President Obama is handing his opponents the means, if only they have the wit to pursue the bigger goal. ..... Somewhere along the line, Hillary and...

Responding to the run on guns precipitated by the preliminary proposals floated by his team, the President said that...

    The key to understanding Barack Hussein Obama is that he does nothing. This proposition is at the heart of a grave misapprehension of this Presidency. An American might be forgiven for feeling that a contribution to the common good is based on performance; productivity, some meaningful place in a functioning enterprise that fulfills one and contributes to the furtherance of some cause, or to one’s family and thus to God. What we cannot be forgiven for is continually attempting to apply this now remarkable cultural artifact; this mindset, to this Presidency. For example, the airwaves resonate as the right-wing talkers...

    This post is written in anger and frustration. Angry that we continue to follow the Republican Party’s elite ignorance. A party that continues to pull defeat from the jaws of victory characterized by pompous fools who fulfill the sterotype built by the left. Frustrated that the reality of politics is this: There will be no third party capable of competing with the coalition constructed by the dems. As a result, true conservatives MUST take steps to irradicate the ignorance of the Republican Party while still adhering to the core values of our forefathers (beliefs that I discovered are considered extreme...

    an illegal 100 watt lightbulb popping on in my head | November 8, 2012 | me
    Here is the full equation: early voting + bribes* + Dems busing their bribees to vote early Obama victory * bribes = (1) Obama's unconstitutional gift to 800,000 illegal immigrants last June (2) beer & pizza parties on college campuses + rides to the polls (3) the usual Dem GOTV "walking around money" that gets spread around in urban areas every election

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 25, 2012 | Karl Rove
    This year's presidential election was transformed between the first debate's opening statements in Denver and the closing statements in Boca Raton. As a result, most of the negative impressions created by the Obama campaign's five-month, $300-million television advertising barrage were destroyed. Seen unfiltered, Gov. Mitt Romney came across as an earnest, straightforward, thoughtful conservative with a concrete plan for the nation's future. [Snip] So what are each candidate's strategies for the stretch run? New television spots reveal the Romney campaign's closing message. One says another four years for Mr. Obama would mean more debt, up to 20 million people losing...

    El Universal, Caracas, Venezuela (from original Spanish) ^ | 11 October 2012 | Runrunes (anti-Hugo Chavez Blogger)
    Granted it is rough English to understand, as it is machine translation from the mainstream, non-Chavez "El Universal" newspaper in Caracas, Venezuela today, but it gives the street level tactics the Socialist Community Organizers used in Venezuela to eek out a victory for Communist Hugo Chavez earlier this week. It is provided below in its entirety, with the link to the original Spanish.Of specific interest will be the tactical description of the "double wave" Chavez PSUV strategy on Election Day in polling zones they identified as somewhat sympathetic to the anti-Chavez democratic forces. Pay close attention because these tactics...

    JS Online ^ | 4-16-12 | Craig Gilbert
    Wisconsin is one of nine swing states that will determine the 2012 presidential race, according to this analysis of the electoral map by the Washington Post’s political blog, “The Fix.” The others are Ohio and Iowa in the Midwest; New Hampshire in the Northeast; Virginia, North Carolina and Florida further down the Atlantic Coast, and Colorado and Nevada in the West. Wisconsin is the only state on this list that Democrats have won in each of the past three elections (in fact Democrats have won the state in six straight elections). Of the nine states on this list, it’s also...

    Presidential candidate NewtGingrich says even though rivals RickSantorum and Mitt Romney are currently leading the pack in the important primary state of Michigan — which is also Romney’s home state — the former House speaker has not given up on his chances. Gingrich, who has dumbfounded political pundits before with his repeated surges, also told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren Wednesday that he continues to confidently look to Super Tuesday. “I’ll be in Michigan campaigning next week — we have every reason to believe we’re going to be competing there effectively — and we’re going to have a number of...
