Lead Us Not Into Temptation
American Spectator, by William Murchison

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 3/23/2013 8:55:12 PM

THE HEAT’S ON, my friends. Gotta change that GOP. Change it how? You know by now, surely, with all the talk afloat in the land since the last time America voted. Gotta gag, not to mention tie up (and maybe strangle, if no one’s watching too closely) those “social issue” people, the ones who cost Republicans probably the White House and almost certainly the Senate. They just wouldn’t shut up, would they? Had to keep jamming their sermons down our throats: abortion, gay rights, marriage, religion. Religion? Oh, my God! All that stuff that divides instead of uniting people?

The GOP shouldn´t change, just go away. And take the RINOs with them.

The hard right Tea Party types can´t win as a stand alone party. If Rino´s are not good enough to make a GOP coalition that has the numbers to win, the dems have power for a long time. The independents are as willows blowing to each wind or wave. The hard right social issue people might be able to moderate themselves so we could get some social issues solved in the right direction (of the right--imagine if the lefties had the right wing moniker how they would play it).

Look at last election and Akins and Bachman. An absolutist stance on abaortion just makes that many more years that a reasonable abortion law cannot be made to replace Roe vs Wade. Sad truth is the majority of the country has been conditioned to fear those who would dictate absolute hard right than they apparently do the far left. The Devil rages as his days grow sort (and a majority of Americans do not believe the Devil as a dark tempter exists).

Yep, those "hard right" Tea Party candidates, Ted Cruz and Jeff Flake cannot win... we have to moderate, like the democrats, to win...

What a ridiculous supposition...

Leftards can be as far left as they want to be and win, if their district is filled with imbeciles. We have to appeal to the intelligent and hope they outnumber the imbeciles. Unfortunately, the leftards have been in charge of our schools for many decades...

What is "hard right" about a balanced budget and a government that operates within the limits of the Constitution? As opposed to a "moderate" GOP that indulges in nation building and federal meddling in grade schools. Marriage is not a federal issue. You don´t have to be religious to oppose abortion.

Thank you, Mr. Murchison, for a well thought out article. The pressure from left wing social groups is so much more unbearable, because we know they own the media and it promotes their causes. They are so unbearable that even intelligent conservatives succumb to the pressure. It is the ´mommy every other kid is doing it" kind of pressure that a kid puts on his parents. It is hard for me to understand why adults can´t stick to their first principles.

To make myself clear, this has nothing to do with gay relationships; live and let live. It has only to do with the redefinition of the language; the word marriage is being requested to have a new definition. Well, I want to change the definition of dog and call it a cat; why not?

too many #2´s in the republican party for any hope that it can be a majority party again.

time for tea party types to declare their independence. there will be a stampede out of the republican and democratic parties if people like Cruz, Palin, Paul decide they need to do their own thing.

Like we´ve said... The GOP is toast! The American populous in general has slid far enough into oblivion in regards to morals, principle, honesty and individualism that if you´re not a libtard you just don´t register here anymore. It is sad, but there are masses of people in this country now that just don´t give a crap about freedom and liberty. Heck, they don´t have the brains enough to know what freedom and liberty is.

#4 Asks what is hard right in answer to #2. There is no difference in either concerning economics but the social issues create a stone wall that those called hard right are failing to acknowledge. That failure is that they cannot legislate or browbeat the citizens of this nation into the pureness of Godly conduct just as in the past autocratic fathers could not beat their sons daughters and wives into submission.
The hard left is able to direct those rebellious people into an impossible to win stance that overpowers the national economical needs and evil runs the issues.
God gave mankind free will knowing the flesh can rule the spirit and lead us into temptation so in love he also gave us our redeemer.
The problem now is the more we try to force and legislate decency let known his will the more the rebellious will run toward that easy route leading to damnation.
Any moral counter party will have to grit their teeth and concentrate on the basic laws of economic ability to thrive and leave the moral issues to God.
The hurtling speed of damnation will dwindle without the constant feeding of it by the attempts to legislate and dictate individual behavior.
That does not mean we must surrender our personal morality.

God defined marriage and described homosexuality as "an abomination". You either believe in God or you don´t. I don´t understand how killing your child is a "right" either. It´s murder, plain and simple.

So many choices before it comes to that. You could abstain, take one of any number of birth control precautions....but no. We are to defend the totally hedonistic and irresponsible actions of women who apparently have no regard for themselves or their children.

A person who can´t defend marriage or life has no business running for office under the conservative (or American, as far as I´m concerned) banner.

The ´right´ to commit sexual sin, kill babies and take away the rights of Christians is goal of the left. Moderates think this is not important. What I do not understand is how the majority do not see those of us on the right are fighting for their freedom. Real freedom. When God gave us free will He let us set up governments. This was to bring order and protection. Now we are seeing how a government without God brings death,slavery and corruption. Our country was founded ´Under God´. And the people did not like to have their appetites curtailed. We lack discipline and understanding. I see no way for us to survive because people who are expected to understand right and wrong have surrendered to the age old ideas that good is bad and bad is good. Our course is set now. Moderates make the meanest jailers. They soon side with the group that seems strongest and help kill off the weak. I do not expect moderates to do anything but enable the left. Who do moderates blame always? It is us who dare stay the course on what we believe: that the Bible is our guide and the Living Word of God. Who do moderates hate the most? Obama or Palin. I use Palin as an example of someone who enrages certain Republicans more than Obama or Hilary does. She flushes out the ones that would love to see many of us disappear so they can continue appeasing the left without hearing our voices crying for the unborn and traditional marriage under God. They attack us because we refuse to knuckle under to those who seek to kill or enslave us. Do not worry, Moderates, the day will come when we will indeed vanish without a trace.

#13 "Get´s it". The only time the Republican party actually nominated a genuine conservative to represent them in a presidential election, Ronald Reagan won two landslide elections. Since they they haven´t nominated even a nominal conservative, with the expected results. As long as Karl Rove and his ilk control the nominating process nothing will change. America truly wants and needs a true conservative to restore her, one that doesn´t flip off his/her base once elected.

Good news for lawmakers who oppose the Keystone XL oil pipeline: San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer has got your back. Steyer, the hedge-fund-trader-turned-anti-Keystone-activist, pledged Thursday to leverage his largely self-funded super PAC to support members of Congress who come under attack for their opposition to the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline. Some Democrats on the Hill have faced Keystone-related attacks not just from Republicans but also from Democratic-friendly labor activists who support the project.

What´s Wrong with the Right

National Review Online took another gratuitous shot at me Thursday in an article defending Ayaan Hirsi Ali, saying: “Hirsi Ali is no Pamela Geller. On the contrary, for her whole life, Hirsi Ali has used anger as a catalyst to great good.” Is it necessary to smear me in order to defend Hirsi Ali? And this is not the first time that NRO has allowed insults and defamation against me and other freedom fighters to run unedited. I hardly know why. But I do know that NRO has no guts, no spine, and no conviction.

A Family Affair:Will Jeb Run?
Only if the Bush Clan Says Yes
Politico, by Peter Schweizer    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/18/2014 7:03:45 AM     Post Reply
Want to know whether Jeb Bush will run for president? Don’t listen to the learned pundits pouring over Electoral College maps and crunching poll numbers, weighing the former Florida governor’s chances against the rest of the putative 2016 Republican field. Put aside for a moment, the very real questions about his immigration stance and whether he’s too much of an Establishment guy in a Tea Party world. Electability matters, of course, but if you want to get Jeb, it’s the last name that counts, and the family history you should consult for clues as to whether he will seek to join

11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative

he 2014 election season dawns, with 2016 closing close behind that. Make book that before both are over, the most quoted or cited person in Republican campaigns — and not infrequently in Democrat campaigns as well — will be Ronald Reagan. There is a reason for this, as Reagan biographer — and American Spectator contributor — Paul Kengor notes in his newest Reagan book 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative. In addition to being a prolific Reagan scholar, Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College and the executive director of the college’s Center for Vision & Values. Why is

Why a Sebelius Senate Run
Could Help Republicans
National Journal, by Sarah Mimms    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/17/2014 6:53:38 AM     Post Reply
With jobs and the economy a given, Republicans are working to turn the 2014 elections into an argument over the Affordable Care Act. And that message could be helped by a high-profile Senate race in Kansas against the very woman who oversaw the law´s disastrous rollout. Some Democrats are asking outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to challenge her home state senator, Republican Pat Roberts, in the fall, the The New York Times reported Wednesday. Nominating Sebelius, a potentially serious contender in the state, would force national Republicans to spend money in Kansas, pulling away funds that could help them

Jeb Bush’s optimism school

The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The party’s hope deficit helps explain why there’s a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word “love” in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesn’t mean that the former Florida governor is even running for president, let alone that he can win. But Bush is being taken seriously because his approach to politics is so different from what’s on offer

Hillary Clinton’s top 2016 worry

If Hillary Clinton runs for president, she’ll be getting a lot of help from Wall Street. But her friends and confidants there tell me she truly hasn’t decided yet. So why is she hesitating? The big reason, according to these sources, has to do with the dude who occupies the Oval Office now. Barack Obama’s rapidly disintegrating presidency — and the chance it will get even worse — is Clinton’s top worry these days as she weighs whether she’ll run, and can win, in 2016, these folks say.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
