Digital Footprints Reveal
Continued RNC Cronyism,
Cynicism

Red State, by Ron Robinson

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 3/24/2013 11:09:45 PM

It’s bad enough that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has decided to continue the relationship with failed Romney consultants Targeted Victory to send the RNC’s mass emails. What’s so harrowing is the cynicism and sloppiness Targeted Victory brings to the table to fulfill that contract. One would think that Targeted Victory, in fulfilling the RNC email contract, would take extreme care and would want to remove any taint of the Romney campaign from the RNC emails. (Targeted Victory invoiced the failed Romney campaign for over $17 million.) But one would be wrong in making that assumption.

Priebus...clean house. When you have the likes of Nicole Wallace, a closet progressive lib, and best friend of Katie Couric, inside...throwing the GOP under the bus...You darn well need to wake up..and start playing for keeps...before you´ve got a third party in the making. We´re sick to death of weak and stupid...

Not to point out the elephant in the room (pun intended...), but as long as the perpetual, legally questionable, and answerable seemingly to *nobody* machine known as ´The Obama Cash Cow´ is in operation...

What most of us are seeing in that area - the ´cronyism and cynicism´ GOP venue...

Is, simply put - *peanuts* - by comparison.

Maybe ´Red State´ should have stuck w/ the dog-on-the-roof bit, if three ring circus was the intent. Get back to us when your concern for ´digital footprints´ includes the PILES of FOIA requested emails (including those under fraudulent-intent monikers) being illegally concealed by the current administration.

I have yet to find Mr. Priebus the least bit exciting - warmed over rice pudding at best - now if Someone else, able to draw huge crowds every time she speaks were to take over, we´d have a sea change.

I think that for millions of conservative voters Romney was the last straw. The Republican Party is going to be murdered in 2014 as millions of conservatives and libertarians stay home or vote 3rd-party rather than support another Country Club Republican.

Do that No 5 and while you are at it hold your breath and turn blue. That will show us and will a;sp show the Democrats as they scoop up every office in sight.

Pribus is really nothing but a broker between the left wing republican consultant class and trying to reach voters with a winning message and it´s not going to work.

This is exactly what Pat Caddell was talking about at CPAC where $150 million is blown by the establishment on pollsters and consultants every presidential cycle.After Romney won the first debate these people told him to back off and play prevent defense and the momentum was lost.You can´t be seen as beating up on the black guy,in essence.

I´m just curious, when one group of people tells another group of people that they won´t participate in a certain activity, and the second group of people says ´too bad, we´re not going to stop,´ what does that second group of people think is going to happen next? And how is screaming at and insulting the first group when they withdraw (as they said they would) going to help anything?

Well, #8, the "second group" finally begins to take the "first group" less seriously when the "first group" whines and sulks but seems uninterested in seeking a solution to their unhappiness. Stay home, join a third party, but those of us who are in the trenches are tired of the complaints. Simply pointing fingers at those who have gone before is enormously unproductive.

Donors return to Crossroads,
give $5m in March
Associated Press, by Philip Elliott    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/15/2014 6:30:37 AM     Post Reply
After a stretch of anemic fundraising, the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads super PAC raised more cash in March than it did during the previous 14 months combined, according to summaries of campaign filings released Monday. The GOP establishment´s favorite super PAC raised almost $5.2 million last month and had more than $6.3 million in the bank as of March 31, according to the report summary. That cash will be used as the outside group tries to help Republicans pick up the six seats they need to win control of the Senate. American Crossroads has been running ads supporting establishment GOP candidates

Hillary Clinton is Obama´s
George H.W. Bush:
The designated successor
Washington Examiner, by Hugh Hewitt    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/14/2014 10:48:03 AM     Post Reply
There are very few genuinely new moments in American politics. Ronald Reagan´s election in 1980 was one of them. President Obama´s triumph in 2008 another. Both were transformative elections, presidencies and men. And both led to parties that struggled for a voice after their defining leader left the scene. George H.W. Bush was a safe and reliable choice for the GOP in 1988: a longtime Washington hand with a golden resume and a seemingly endless and loyal list of supporters and donors. Lots of folks didn´t like him, of course, inside his own party, inside the Democrats, inside the media and outside

´Tax Man´ Obama has
sought 442 tax increases
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

April 15 is a hard day for many, as their annual federal tax bill comes due. But it could have been worse. According to a new report, President Obama has sought 442 tax increases since taking office, though most have died because of congressional opposition. Having included 93 new taxes in his fiscal 2015 budget, the anti-tax Americans for Tax Reform reviewed his proposals since his 2009 Inauguration to determine just how tax-friendly the president has been. Their conclusion: He´s very friendly. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover

Chances of getting audited
by IRS lowest in years

Posted By: tisHimself- 4/13/2014 8:24:08 AM     Post Reply
Washington - As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday´s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service´s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered. "We keep going after the people who look like the worst of the bad guys," IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in an interview. "But there are going to be some

IMF urges Congress to back

The U.S. made clear this week that it wants the International Monetary Fund to be the emergency lender for countries like Ukraine, but American lawmakers have persistently refused to give the IMF the additional financial firepower that it has sought. That tension was evident in meetings concluding this weekend of the IMF, the World Bank and representatives of the Group of 20 major economies: Washington´s long delay in ratifying changes to the IMF´s so-called quota system came under fire from finance ministers and other officials of many countries.

Connecticut estate sells for
$120 million, a U.S. record
Chicago Tribune, by Lauren Beale    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/13/2014 8:03:25 AM     Post Reply
A Greenwich, Conn., estate called Copper Beech Farm has sold for $120 million, making it the most expensive recorded home sale in the U.S. Priced as high as $190 million, the 50.5-acre estate centers on an 1890s French Renaissance-style home of 13,519 square feet that sits on 4,000 feet of waterfront. The price surpasses private-equity chief Tully Friedman´s $117.5-million sale last year of a nearly 9,000-square-foot home in Woodside, Calif. Named for copper beech trees on the site, the estate in Greenwich was sold by timber tycoon John Rudey. Reached by way of a 1,800-foot-long driveway, the main house features a three-story paneled

After years of being a Republican
activist, I´m done with the GOP
Guardian, by Jimmy LaSalvia    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/13/2014 4:29:36 AM     Post Reply
I´ve been a Republican activist all my life. As a volunteer and professional staffer, I held positions in party organizations and campaigns since high school. I was the ultimate partisan team player, even forming GOProud, an organization for gay conservatives and their allies. But I no longer recognize the party I grew up supporting, and I recently announced that I have changed my voter registration to "no party". I left the Republican party because it no longer represents my principles and values. I am a limited government conservative, yet Republicans today like big government, as long as they are in charge

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
