Noonan advice to GOP after loss
´Tea party style of rage is
not one that wins over converts ´

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 11/11/2012 2:42:17 PM

Last week’s presidential election left many Republicans looking for answers, having not only lost the White House, but by only by a small margin. And now that the dust has settled, it has given some the opportunity to figure out where things stand with the party, including Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan. In an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Noonan was asked if the Republican Party could find a way to appeal to Hispanic voters.

Comments:
How many Republicans does she really have contact with? Does she even know a conservative?

This stupid twit doesn´t know the difference between rage and desperation. I guess from her Beltway tower she sees only the stupidity of the simpletons in fly-over country. After all, who but the mindless simpletons who make up the Angry Mob would reject the more coherent view of the Republican establishment apparatchiks who know all, see all, and the proceed to lose all.

The fate of our nation depends now on the midterm elections and a turn around in the senate. If we are to make any real headway in avoiding the complete financial collapse and the accompanying civil unrest (war?) that will follow. I fear for my son´s future because of the cowardice of so many of the last three generations to make any real sacrifice. And I´m not sure that they will be any more ready in the next 24 months.

God Save America.

Sound fiscal principles sound pretty good to people with sound fiscal principles just as sound moral principles sound good to those who live by them. Whenever those principles are lived fully, they work. However, it enrages those devoid of principles and it their envy and rage that rings in Peggy´s ears.

It´s too bad that the hispanic voters don´t understand that by voting democrat, they are voting for the very policies that caused them, their parents, or grandparents to want to leave their home countries and come to America in the first place. The democrats are slowly destroying the opportunities that make the US a place worth immigrating to.

The republicans/conservatives have always been looked upon as being old fuddy duddy´s, square, not with it ... You get my point.

This is what needs to change, but without changing our message of self reliance, working hard, patriotism, etc.

In other words, we need to show that it´s cool to be conservative. I´m not sure how this can be done. I will leave that up to branding and marketing experts. Maybe the Republican Party should hire a marketing company.

They won´t be happy until the GOP elects a left wing Democrat as our Nominee. The cries that Mitt Romney was not moderate enough are actually kind of pathetic, and would be humorous if we were talking about something less important.

Peggy, shut the heck up. Just shut up. I do not care what you think, you ridiculous twit who slobbered over Obama four years ago. People like YOU have contributed to where this country is today. So you go on and go to your little cocktail parties and sigh about how ignorant all us peons in flyover country are, and bravely soldier on for the cause of mediocrity. And in 25 years, you look at where the country is then, and you look in the mirror, and you take pride in what you see, because YOU helped build it. (And by build, I mean destroy.) I can´t write more about what I think of you lest I be banned by our gracious hostess, you ridiculous twit. I repeat myself, but some things deserve emphasis.

What a twit. I´m not going to add my vote to people who vote 70% Hispanic and 93% Black. I´m going to ask 93% of the white population to vote Conservative and follow the voting traits of the racial party. Vote for your own. That seems to be what they are preaching in the Democrat Party.

Noonan speaks for the establishment Republicans in the Beltway and leadership committees across the country. They cannot stand the people who make up the Tea Party and they cannot stand conservatives. If maintaining their station in life means adopting the ideas and principles of the Democrats then they are happy to do it.

Listen to what they are saying. They are pushing to make changes only to get votes. In effect they are becoming exactly like the Democrats and using minorities to gain and stay in power.

Before determining what it is going to do or needs to do, the Republican party needs to determine who and what it is first. Unfortunately, the division in the Republican party is too deep and wide to bridge and bring back together just as the division in the US appears to be as well.

Tea Party rage? Noonan hasn´t seen anything yet. Evidence is massively piling up the Romney lost due to voter fraud. What is the Republican establishment doing? Nothing.

What is the Tea Party doing? Calling urgently for election fraud volunteers in WI, OH, PA, VA & FL. I would add CO to the list.

God Bless Allen West! He is the only Republican fighting this, but then the GOP tried to redistrict him out of his seat.

Sure, purge any principle that might ever irritate anyone. Erase every value and idea.

And then hope to be seen as nice people who should be voted into office.

I don´t see a future for either the GOP or the Tea Party. That is harsh, their doom is not my desire, only my expectation.

But they will not survive or thrive after a self inflicted lobotomy and castration.

The Republican party collected fewer votes in ´12 then in ´08, nominate a New England semi-RINO in ´16 and watch that number fall more. The Tea Party is the future of the Republicans or a third party. The Republican "establishment" is the problem, or is it us "fly-over" people who refuse to go along to get along?

The Tea Party begrudgingly got "some" credit for the historical GOP sweep in 2010. Two years later, it´s all that´s wrong with the Republicans and if only the Tea Party were shut up, the GOP would ride a cascade of success. The biggest concern the Tea Party had of Mitt Romney was his apparent waffling principles. But we were willing to overlook that in the hopes that he would defeat a Degenerate who has no principles except for looking out for Number Won. Now they are condemning us for losing the election? The Tea Party is the only remnant left in America that has a clear set of principles! How long do we listen to the rank and file GOP? When, just when is it time to form our own party? If we, as an independent party, stand for principles I think we would be amazed at the dichotomy of supporters we would have. Look - the same thing is happening in churches across the USA. When they water down their doctrine and allow the newcoming "experts" to dictate how things should be; when they try to be all things to all people - they reap the whirlwind -- they no longer stand for anything and prostitute themselves out to every stray and corrupt breeze that comes along. The Tea Party does not need to shrink and shrivel away, nor does it need to adapt itself to make it more palatable to others. We saw in 2010 what it can do. Stay the course, Tea Party!

Rage of the tea party? Where and when? Listening to old Peggy is like listening to Obama.....stuttering, uhing, uming until what she´s trying to say makes no sense. Go away, Peggy and Bill, etc. You have no idea what people like us are like. No idea at all. Dems and Republicans on the coasts and in DC are exactly the same. No thank you to any of them.

Noonan, Parker, Rove - begone.

We´ve lived life on the edge of a 51-49 majority and now we´re on the losing end.

There is no reason we should be relying on vote margins in the thousands or even hundreds but your ´Dem Lite´ approach has taken us there.

With all the ignorant citizens in this nation, they can be be forgiven for mistaking someone imitating a Democrat for the genuine article. But that doesn´t earn their vote.

Peggy Noonan is ultimately one of the elite establishment types. I´m just a Jewish woman, American who loves her country and also knows a few tea party types. Having attending three tea party meetings in my lifetime, I must say that they were the nicest most civilized concerned citizen I´ve ever met. There is more rage on the board of the average synagogue, because of differences of opinion than I saw at a tea party.

Who´s going to invite this old has-been to a cocktail party now? She spent the last 3 months or so shaking her head at how President Wonderbum had tossed away all his advantages and what a disappointment he´d turned out to be. That was when she thought the Republicans were winning. Now that she´s seen where the booze and the cozy treats are, she wants back at the Democrat table again, but why should they bother with her anymore? She abandoned Obama when she thought he was a loser; there are plenty of LOYAL journalists who can take her vacated place under the table licking up the crumbs.

Just as Noonan and the rest of the establishment RINO GOP created the false narrative--to cover for their repeated political failures--that Sarah Palin cost the republicans the White House last election, they are now going to try--to once again rewrite history--and blame this RINO disaster on the Tea Party. That´s funny considering the geniuses running Romney´s campaign wouldn´t even let anyone mention the name Tea Party let alone embrace them. That worked out great didn´t it Peggy?

A brilliant post 21. I´ll add that if a third party forms and starts to take off, quite a few of the old guard republicans will run out front and try to convince us they have been with us all along. Personal power is more important to them than pretty much anything.

It´s really getting tiresome to have all these supposed GOP talking heads suggesting that conservatives in this country need to flush their principles down the sewer to be co-mingled with the Progressive/Socialists simply to win elections. If that´s the price, it´s too high and I for one would rather stand for what is right and be forever out of power than sell out to the immoralists and progressive secuularists. The truth, moral character, integrity, and family values have absolutely no meaning to those people. They may be in charge, but they will forever be wrong.

Is this thread a good place to post that aside from Lucianne, I have nowhere to go for information that, once there, doesn´t sadden me or madden me. Noonan became famous by dismissing Reagan as an aged actor in an empty suit - how many remember that? (Her gratitude for a speech writing job - heh.)
Her empty-minded blather is blown up by the MSM because it always denigrates conservatism.

I am sick of reading our own blogs that are in the same reality-denying universe as the MSM, just coming at us from a different side. When I looked at RCP on the day before the election it was clear Romney wasn´t going to win (and I earlier predicted Romney would win Illinois in an optimistic burst of naivete.) Why then, were so many right-leaning blogs predicitng a Romney landslide? How are we well-served by such nonsense?

Jessie Jackson´s son gets a beer distributorship in Chicago after his father protests the company. Glen Beck is selling $100+ jeans and telling us it is part of some revolution. How do such people get so many followers that overlook the self-serving behavior?

Apparently the Jeremiah Wright style of rage, however, has won a lot of converts, one of whom was Ms Noonan in 2008. If there is any Tea Party Rage, it is because of the current policies that are leading to the decline of the US, not to progress as liberals like to pretend.

Moderates don´t win elections among either Dems or Reps. Perhaps the only exception was Clinton in ´96 but that was because (1) we ran a horrible candidate and (2) the economy was booming. Reps who win are conservatives and Dems who win are liberals.

As Truman said, when urged to move to the center: "Give people a choice between a republican and a republican, and they´ll pick the republican every time." We run as center-left, we love to the true lefties.

The tea party was not involved Noonan. They were not on the stage during Romney´s nomination process...not one. Romney should have included the tea party, Ron Paul, Palin, Coeburn, DeMint, Franklin Graham...by the way Peg I have talked to loads of people..no one.. not one believes Romney lost. Noonan & Krystol are what´s wrong with the party..not the tea party. Does she remember the 2010 & Walker elections??? She needs to get out DC more often.

Noonan and Diane Sawyer are like 2 peas in a pod. You can tell by listening to either for 10 seconds that they know... they just know that their fecal material has no odor whatsoever.

The wimpy Republicans are not about to start winning future elections by becoming the Democrat Lite Party, neither are they going to win future elections by going along with liberal Democrat amnesty programs for illegal aliens that are bound to generate millions of new liberal Democrat voters in a few years. The highly partisan liberal Democrats would not be proposing those "path to citizenship" amnesty programs if they thought that more then a very small percentage of legalized aliens would ever vote for conservative Republicans.

All evidence to the contrary. 2010 went extremely well and Romney wasn´t a tea party candidate.

2014 will give the tea party their first opportunity to campaign against D senators in red states who have so far been held unaccountable for their votes on Obamacare and the government stimulus. Party on.

Arizona tribe set to prosecute

Washington Post, by Sari Horwitz    Original Article

On Pascua Yakui Indian Reservation, Ariz. — Tribal police chief Michael Valenzuela drove through darkened desert streets, turned into a Circle K convenience store and pointed to the spot beyond the reservation line where his officers used to take the non-Indian men who battered Indian women. “We would literally drive them to the end of the reservation and tell them to beat it,” Valenzuela said. “And hope they didn’t come back that night. They almost always did.” About three weeks ago, at 2:45 a.m., the tribal police were called to the reservation home of an Indian woman who was allegedly

More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

Three pictures in the

Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/12/2014 7:10:07 AM     Post Reply
The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

Deaths at Phoenix VA hospital

The chairman of the House Committee on Veterans ­Affairs said Wednesday that dozens of VA hospital patients in Phoenix may have died while awaiting medical care. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., said staff investigators also have evidence that the Phoenix VA Health Care System keeps two sets of records to conceal prolonged waits that patients must endure for ­doctor appointments and treatment. "It appears as though there could be as many as 40 veterans whose deaths could be ­related to delays in care," ­Miller announced to a stunned audience during a committee hearing Wednesday.

The eight-month-old was brought along by his clearly proud parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to the ‘playdate’ organised by The Royal New Zealand Plunket Society at Government House in Wellington. Following his scene-stealing appearance on Monday when the family arrived in New Zealand to begin their three week tour Down Under, all eyes were on the future king as he was introduced to ten babies born within a few weeks of his own birthday, on

A once-prominent socialite was found guilty Tuesday in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband after spending years abroad living a lavish lifestyle across Europe. Pamela Phillips, 56, had pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. During the trial that began in February, Phillips´ lawyers told jurors their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano and that she was the victim of overzealous authorities who failed to follow other leads. They said Phillips was already a successful real estate broker with her own money, and suggested that Triano had

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
