Reince, Repeat

October 30, 2015

Why do Republicans  continue to hold their debates with the marxist media in command? Why do they not make arrangements for debate hosting with the Heritage Foundation, MRC or Conservative Review?  Republicans seem to be more afraid of conservatives than they are of socialists and more comfortable losing elections than winning them.  

There is some serious brain power and talent  in the Republican presidential line up and yet it seems that the RNC cannot wait to squelch it not just in this election, but in nearly every one in memory.    

The bottom line may be that the RNC uses these farcical debates with liberal activist moderators to effectively drive the conservatives out of the race.

We must look to the consistent results of these so called debates and walk them backward to find the motivation for repeating the same losing behavior election after election.  They are repeating this seemingly insane game plan because in the end it consistently buys them what they truly want; They appear to want less than stellar candidates who do not inspire maximum voter turn out.  

Add to it this the questionable primary system in which most early primaries are held in blue states, topped off by the one in South Carolina which actually has the democrats voting in the Republican primary.    This allows the so called moderate candidates to rake in the dough heavily, right out of the gate, while forcing the conservatives to spend enormous sums of money and drive them out of the competition.   

The Republicans are often called the “stupid party”.   If they desire to lose election after election, they couldn’t do a smarter job.

Carly Fiorino and My Precious Time

August 11, 2015

So here we are a precious 14 months until the next presidential election.  It is great that there is nothing pressing going on while all these senators and governors run for president.  There are not thousands of Christians being murdered in the middle east.  There are not hundreds of black youth being murdered in the cities every day.   The Keystone pipeline is finished.  Obamacare has been discontinued and ISIS is no more. The border has been secured. Iran now will never have nuclear warheads and Clinton has been cleared of all suspicion.  

So, of course then it ’s a journalists priority to cover the election 24 – 7.  

Ehhhhhh, maybe not so much./s

It can be said after watching the first presidential debate for 2016 on Fox News Channel, that the candidates behave like contestants on American Idol, all trying to elbow their way to stardom.  The thing is, after a couple seasons we learned to start watching the show 3 weeks before the final vote.  In doing this we avoided wasting hours of precious time and brain cells watching the less talented and the undeserving.    

This plan translates directly to Fox’s election coverage.  If the talking heads at Fox are not taking every opportunity for public naval gazing, they are covering unlikely presidential nomination winners like Jim Gilmore.  Oh, and lets find out more about the old feud between Rosie O’Donnell and Trump.  Yeah thats the ticket. /s

Thank the Lord for Carly Fiorina.  She so intellectually outclasses most of the candidates from both major parties that she may have the effect of eliminating the lesser half at faster speed than would otherwise be.  Trump is no longer entertaining and not used to criticism so he should be folding soon.  Carly Fiorino is so quick and articulate, she makes Trump look like Triumph the Insult Comic rather than a candidate for high office.  Lets pray a few hopeless candidates will see the impossibility of their success in this and  leave the race sooner rather than later.  Are you listening Jeb Bush? Trump? Santorum?

In the meantime, Fox needs to break away from its make-up mirrors and do its job, like covering the news rather than trying to make the news or be part of the story like their liberal colleagues do.  

I’ll be passing on Fox for a while unless I hear it has suddenly remembered how to put its pants on front ways or management finally goes for dignity and professionalism rather than mud wrestling contests or indecent public exposure.   

Cruzin’ for a Bruzin’

March 26, 2015

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is running for President. Good. We need a conservative with the chutzpah of Obama but with genuine mental dexterity. The predatory media has already painted the target on Cruz’s post office mug shot and started the attack. Also Good. The more the media beat him up, the more the regular Joe will be drawn to hear him.

I’ve heard several news sources say he can’t win. Neither could Seabiscuit or the 1980 American Olympic Hockey Team So why should Cruz bother?

If I recall correctly, Bill Clinton couldn’t win either, since his opponent George H. W. Bush at one point during the first Gulf War, had a near 90 percent approval rating. Clinton got the nomination without much of a fight, since few even in his own party thought he had a prayer. Of course that hayseed Lincoln had no chance against Stephen Douglass either.

Ive seen a couple so called analysts get pretty hot under the collar about Cruz’s decision to run. If he’s so unlikely a victor, why are they so animated? Of course the odds are against Cruz simply from a mathematical point of view, but why the indignation? Some in the new media who claim the mantel of conservatism, also belittle his effort.

What are they afraid of?

What is it they know that they are not sharing?

They know that Americans are basically a conservative, law respecting and abiding people who are not to be taken for granted. They know that a conservative CAN win despite their indignation to the contrary. They know it and it scares the hell out of them that the peasantry can take a shot at retrieving power and succeed. Sure its tough, what with the cheating and the back stabbing and all that electioneering but it IS possible.

A Ted Cruz run will necessarily force other Republican candidates’ campaigns to lean right. The Cruz dynamism makes RINOs like Christie and JEB Bush look slow- witted, and angry by comparison mostly because they are.

Don’t get me wrong. I have not yet begun to trust Ted Cruz. however it is great thing that he is running. There is no reason on earth why anyone should be nominated because they deserve it , because its their turn or because the NY liberal media has already crowned them. There needs to be a good intelligent cleansing fight over the issues . The fight needs to be driven to the right so it can take place in a lane of the belief in honor, country and law and order for a change and Cruz is the man for that job.

Thanks, Ted

Our God is Awesome

January 16, 2015

Its not a matter of politics. Its one of faith. Our God, the God of Paul and David is NOT the one that Islam worships. For someone other than Jehovah Jireh to be worshipped in one of our churches is abhorrent to the worship of our God. Allowing other kinds of secular meetings in the basement of the church, but not prayer services to another entity; “Thou shall not have strange gods before me”. Its a free country, but our churches are still privately held.

Its good that the call to prayer did not come from the church, but that was only part of the problem.

Islamists enjoy carrying on about insults to Islam. Christians or Jews are clearly not entitled to be resistant to any kind of adverse abridgments to our faith and its precepts. There are all kinds of buildings in the Duke University campus, Muslim prayers need not take place in a christian church or synagogue.

Thank you Rev. Graham and I suspect that you are just getting warmed up.
