Lessons Learned: The GOP´s Weak Links
American Thinker, by J.R. Dunn

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 10/10/2018 11:14:08 AM

There is one single major cause for the chaos surrounding Republican SCOTUS confirmations over the past thirty years – the fulcrum for the entire exercise of humiliating conservative judges. It´s not the Democrats, it´s not the left, and it´s not the feminists. They aren´t the crucial factor. They simply take advantage of it. Quite simply put, it´s the GOP weak links. Let´s be clear on terminology: these are not RINOs. Of the four who succeeded in disrupting the Kavanaugh nomination, none fits the classic mold of the RINO – the go-along-to-get-along type who adapts

I will gladly support Murkowski´s opponent in her next election. I hope it is Sarah Palin.

Fantastic article. Thanks for posting, OP.

So there it is. We elect marginal Republicans, and then they hold us hostage at times like this. They create crises within party discipline, and then demand concessions to resolve them.

As I´ve said many times, these people have way too much leverage--both in the way described in this great article, and in my complaint: That the media goes to them to find dissenting views that echo Democrat talking points. In the twisted media universe that controls the narrative, finding an Republican idiot counts as substantiation to a Democrat attack. McCain played this game for decades, backed by various toadies.

What then must be done? First, recognize that these people are a problem, not a solution. Second, find any alternative we can during primary season. Lastly, if it can be done without costing us control of Congress, consider voting for a Democrat who may do less harm..

When asked to support a repugnant Democrat, President Kennedy said, "Sometimes party loyalty asks too much." In dealing with these marginal Republicans, we need to ensure that party disloyalty pays a much higher price.

In the end only one Republican defected. Hopefully she gets primaried.

The Democrats are in your face, but the Republicans are the real backstabbers.

The Democrats tried to destroy Kavanagh, and the Republicans nearly let it happen. We´ll never know how many Republicans were considering dumping Kavanagh, but it was likely more than Murkowski.

At least the Republicans still respond to the voting public for the most part. The Democrats do as they please.

So Elizabeth Warren was doing a victory dance about her DNA test showing ´strong evidence´ she may have 1/1,024 or 0.09 percent Native American lineage. In hot pursuit, she called on President Trump to ´pay up´ with his $1 million offer to the charity of her choice for taking the DNA test he said he would toss to her at a future presidential debate, earlier. As the network press admiringly gushed about the whole ´gotcha,´ she was convinced she had him cornered. Well, sorry, that debate hasn´t happened yet and now it´s doubtful it ever will,

It’s time to end women’s sports — especially since they’re not just “women’s” sports anymore. A case in point is “Rachel” McKinnon, Ph.D., a man masquerading as a woman (MMW), or a “transgender” as the enlighteners say, who just won a women’s masters cycling event. As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft (almost) put it, he “whooped them little girls.” McKinnon isn’t alone, as many MMW have won women’s sporting events during the last decade. To name just a few, a 55-year-old MMW won a women’s long-drive competition

Dr. Ford´s Willfully Tangled Web

Posted By: PageTurner- 10/16/2018 10:19:30     Post Reply
It was not Shakespeare, but Sir Walter Scott who wrote, "O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!" During her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 27, Christine Blasey Ford proved that Scott´s axiom is at least as valid today as it was two centuries ago. There is likely a core of truth to the story Ford told on September 27. The evidence, however, fully exonerates Justice Brett Kavanaugh. It suggests instead that the 18-year-old Ford attended an afternoon event in 1985 at which four young men

As I wrote the other day, gaffe- and idiocy-prone Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema is shaping up as the Christine O´Donnell of the Arizona Senate race. Everything is there but the witchcraft, an unguarded reference to which sank the inexperienced O´Donnell´s campaign. Oh wait. Here´s what the Washington Examiner found: Emails obtained by the Washington Examiner show Sinema inviting a prominent coven of feminist witches in Arizona called Pagan Cluster to celebrate International Women’s Day and to protest the war in March of 2003.

Politico had a nice summary of all the things the Democrats are promising to do if elected. It was the usual mix of authoritarian-socialism. 1. Single-payer health care. Single-payer health care. Isn´t that great? And only one payer! And I suppose that one payer won´t be any of us, right? In reality, of course, all of us who pay taxes (and none of us who don´t) will end up being the single-payer. They really should call it "single-doctor" healthcare, because once healthcare becomes "free", demand will overwhelm supply. As in Cuba, everyone will have a "right" to

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass), the pastiest white woman in the entire Senate, has long been a figure of fun for her claim to be the "first woman of color" to teach at Harvard Law School, owing to her "family lore" of holding Native American ancestry. It doesn´t exactly seem to check out based on looking at her, or asking around in the Oklahoma Native American community she claims to be part of. President Trump, of course, has had a field day with her pretensions, calling her ´Pocahontas.´ Now she´s come out after a long, long hiatus from those charges to claim

The entire Democrat establishment of Chicago was publicly humiliated last week after selling expensive ($200) tickets to a fundraiser in the grand ballroom of the Hilton Hotel downtown, only to have the “special guest,” Maxine Waters, missing in action, with no notice and no excuse. Representative Waters has titillated angry Democrats with her incitements to harass their political opponents, and her demands for impeachment of President Trump that began even before he took office. These outbursts won her the sobriquet “Auntie Maxine.” But based on her failure to show up with no notice,

Brazil: Top restaurant demonizes

What is it about restaurants and meltdowns of the leftwing elites? Is it time for a new dish, called the ´lefty-melt´? Seems that as Brazil´s presidential campaign goes into its final stretch with a strong likelihood of a Trump-like conservative named Jair Bolsonaro winning, Brazil´s elites are reacting the same way U.S. elites react to President Trump. Staff of Maní, an elite, chi-chi, oh-so-hip, cool and chic restaurant in Sao Paulo with an awesomely innovative menu, joined a leftist social media campaign against Bolsonaro on Instagram discouraging Bolsonaro´s supporters from coming to their restaurant.

Democratic presidential frontrunner hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren always prides herself on being the candidate of the little guy. In her old-fashioned granny suits with her old-fashioned glasses, she speaks in a soft, syrupy voice and calls herself a consumer advocate. Naturally, there´s not a left-wing cause on Earth the Massachusetts Democrat won´t support, and of course, as a professional fake Indian with affirmative action professorships under her belt, an incongruous house-flipping history, an Imelda-sized wardrobe, and a big bankbook, she knows how to play the games, academic or otherwise. But she always portrays herself as

South Africa´s ruling party, the African National Congress, is taking steps to change that nation´s constitution and permit the seizure without compensation of land owned by white farmers. Notably, the leftists at the Southern Poverty Law Center demand that we avert our eyes from this situation because "white genocide" is a "dangerous myth." But there is already an ongoing epidemic of murder of white farmers. Statistics gathered by the private civil rights group AfriForum show this trend: The current constitutional measure would institutionalize the process

Two candidates running in California´s 49th Congressional District, comprising some of San Diego and Orange County, exemplify the huge differences between the parties. This is now a purple district, no longer red. Running for Darrell Issa´s seat are pragmatic Republican Diane Harkey and so-called Democrat Mike Levin. Levin speaks like a socialist, supporting issues such as Medicare for All while not saying how he would pay for it. There is such a sharp contrast between Harkey´s and Levin´s views. It comes down to what people consider the issues vital to them. Levin speaks of forcing President

I´m trying to work up some sympathy and I ... can´t. ABC executives reportedly are now saying that they regret firing the star of their hit comedy, Roseanne, who made a bad tweet and got canned for it. According to the Daily Caller: Two top ABC executives regret firing actress Roseanne Barr from eponymous hit show “Roseanne,” The Daily Mail reported Thursday. Barr was abruptly let go from ABC following an allegedly Ambien-fueled Twitter tirade in which she tried to draw a parallel between Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama,

Elizabeth Warren is very concerned that Americans will not approve of her dishonest scheme to leapfrog over competitors during her academic career. Elizabeth Warren claimed she was a minority “Native American” to get ahead in her career. Warren is a fraud and she is concerned it may damage her chances of becoming the next US president. In 1996 the Harvard Crimson identified Elizabeth Warren as a woman of color and Native American. In 1998 Harvard bragged Elizabeth Warren, “who is Native American”, was their only minority tenured woman on staff. Hat Tip Chris-A 1997 article in the Fordham Law Review

Nearly everybody loves music. In fact, music can often bridge the gaps between people when nothing else can. And there are few things more fun than seeing people react to hit songs. There’s definitely no formula to what constitutes a hit song, although some songs were natural hits from the first time they made their way on the radio – think about songs like “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” or “Irreplaceable.” Other tunes become smashes inexplicably. But there’s a whole different category of hits: overrated songs. Some singles have no business being popular or well-loved, and

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) launched a bizarre Twitter rant late Monday afternoon following the disastrous rollout of DNA results that further debunked her decades-long claim to American Indian ancestry. Warren’s thread of 20-plus (and counting) tweets began at about 5:30 p.m. ET, where she attempted to both insult President Trump and defend herself. In her first tweet, and without any evidence, Warren made the outlandish claim that Trump “makes creepy physical threats about me.” The truth is that all Trump has ever done is ridicule her false claims about being Cherokee. “We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that shows “strong evidence” she has Native-American heritage, rebutting President Donald Trump’s ridicule of her as “fake Pocahontas” while she signals a possible 2020 presidential run. Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said last month she would take a “hard look” at running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Trump in 2020. She and Trump clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has cast aspersions on her claim to Native-American ancestry. “When I decided to run for Senate in 2012, I never thought that my family’s Native American heritage would come

Elections: American democracy has a problem — a voting problem. According to a new study of U.S. Census data, America has more registered voters than actual live voters. It´s a troubling fact that puts our nation´s future in peril. The data come from Judicial Watch´s Election Integrity Project. The group looked at data from 2011 to 2015 produced by the U.S. Census Bureau´s American Community Survey, along with data from the federal Election Assistance Commission.

On Oct. 14, CBS’s “60 Minutes” aired an interview with President Donald Trump — rare for its status as having appeared outside of Fox News or conservative media. Appearing the same weekend as First Lady Melania Trump’s appearance on “20/20,” this would seem to represent a new level of media blitzing on the part of an administration that’s already seen its head get plenty of free promotion during rallies broadcast on cable news. And, like Melania Trump’s utterly-on-message, relentlessly forward-moving TV interview, the President’s interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief

On Monday a federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’ defamation suit against President Trump. Stormy filed a defamation suit against President Trump after he mocked her over a sketch of the man who allegedly threatened her–the man in the sketch looked eerily like her ex-husband. The U.S. District Judge dismissed the case on grounds Trump’s tweet was “rhetorical hyperbole,” not defamatory as Stormy Daniels alleged. The federal judge also ordered Stormy to pay Trump’s legal fees! On Tuesday morning President Trump tweeted out a warning to “horseface” Stormy Daniels and her “third rate lawyer” Michael Avenatti.

When all else fails, change the system. Leftist luminaries, who weren´t able to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, suggested in the aftermath that Americans should consider reforming the Senate. Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they´ve now, apparently, resorted to "reforming" the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives. NBC News reports that some Democratic activists are suggesting that to even out the "balance of power" the size of the House should grow as much as double its current size."Expanding the House of Representatives would be a vast improvement
