Don’t write off the right quite yet
Tribune Media Services, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/14/2012 5:09:47 AM

The conservative Gotterdammerung is finally here. “Like dazed survivors in a ravaged city, America’s conservatives are wailing and beating their collective breasts,” opines an Economist columnist. Former Reaganite Rep. Vin Weber (R-Minn.) laments in the journal Policy Review, “I have never been so concerned about the future of conservative ideas.” William Kristol of The Weekly Standard concludes that the “conservative movement, which accomplished great things over the past quarter-century, is finished.” His magazine has dedicated an entire issue to the “conservative crack-up.”

Just wait 4 years until these kids realize that their liberal teachers were full of bull**** and they still can´t find a job.

I think Bill Kristol is finished. His ideas float on the wind. He sides with whatever the going thing is, right now it looks like the liberal communists are in. I think the election was stolen. We have a lot of crooks in government. Their day is coming!

Jonah is right. Every loss is met this way. Whatever side loses, there are always pundits there to write obits. It took a bit more than 15 years for Reagan to go from the speech he gave for Goldwater to the presidency, and around 15 years for Newt Gingrich to go from a newly elected rep to speaker of the house after 40 years of democratic control. Things change.
Frankly, I don´t feel like fighting anymore either, I am bitter and disappointed. But we cannot just quit the field. We have to be there, play after play bushing back as hard as we can.

Perhaps Boehner and McConnell could hold a joint press conference (they can hold hands for support) and remind the People that for 6 years Obama has bad-mouthed the BUSH tax cuts as cuts for millionaires and billionaires. So, OK we are going to allow them to expire. Then point out how beneficial they were to middle class Americans and small businesses too, and to prepare for higher taxes. (We tried to explain this to the American People but they would not listen to us). Explain that Obama really wanted them to pay their "fair share" too. Obama said the BUSH tax cuts were bad. He won. Americans lost.

I also agree. Jonah is right. Funk over. Time to get back in the game.

Obama War Room: Tell Me Some Lies

OBAMA: So I said, ´´Whaddaya think, Mitt? Secretary of Business. Economy’s beginning to come back, and I need a turnaround guy like you to get it going the other way again so we can push for another stimulus.´´

[enter Secretaries of Defense and State]

LEON PANETTA: Sir! Sir! We just heard. . . .
OBAMA: Stop! Unless it’s about which schmo and his family I want taken out with a drone, I don’t want to know.
JOE BIDEN: People, do not put him in a position where he’s forced to delay a decision until the time to act has passed.
HILLARY: But Mr. President, China. . . .
OBAMA: [covers ears] Na na na na na na na na na. . . . [leaves]
BIDEN: Jeez, what’s so gawdawful important you couldn’t handle it yourselves?
PANETTA: A Chinese carrier group is cruising off Santa Monica.
HILLARY: The People’s Republic has declared the Pacific Ocean an extension of its territorial waters.
BIDEN: So? Let the U. N. handle it.
HILLARY: Apparently, one of Ming ruler Zhu Di’s exploration fleets traversed the ocean in 1428 and claimed it for the Emperor.
BIDEN: What could the Boss do about it anyway?
PANETTA: Stage a benefit for displaced Pacific islanders?
BIDEN: Betcha Chris Christie would appear.
HILLARY: [screaming] This isn’t about Springsteen!

[Enter president]

OBAMA: Crisis over yet? Yes or no? No particulars.
BIDEN: Sure, Chief. Jay, have the networks spike the story. National security concerns.
CARNEY I´ll get nailed at my briefing.
BIDEN: Just say: when the facts are in, the president will hold a presser and take hard questions. [snort]

Conservative Americans are ready to fight and have been for some time. We have been the ones on the field. Most Republicans in Washington have ignored the Tea Party or openly ridiculed it. Thank goodness the American Revolution didn´t have to depend upon men who were afraid to stand on the principle of God given freedom. It is going to take real backbone to confront the progressives on both sides of the aisle. We need voices of opposition not appeasement. Freedom is not free. It has always required sacrifice. Fly your Gadsen flag. The progs need to see the opposition.

Poster #5, I think you have something there. Let them implement their Marxist ideas and let´s watch it all collapse.

Folks, I´ve given up a hundred times. Quit, zip, nada, zero...but, just like all you L´dotters I picked myself up (once again) and gave it one more try. It´s like a self inflicted torture, but that´s us. That´s what we do. That´s why we come to Lucianne.com.

All the people on this blog are successful people and I don´t mean in just in financial terms. We need to pool our talents and weave a strategy to reverse this Marxist takeover of our government.

Although my kids are all grown, I´ve decided it´s to go after the (socialist) government educational system. I have concluded that is the root of all our problems.

#12 and others: we had 4 years to rebuke this administration and a small group of patriots sounded the alarm. But alas it all fell on deaf ears. Imagine, 40 states have submitted sesession petitions. What if those same 40 states submitted petitions declaring Obambi and illegial occupant of our White House? We cried, begged and submitted irrefutable evidence to the same and we were laughed at and riduculed. Told it couldn´t happen; well don´t we all wish now Obambi was out of office. Getting rid of him on Constitutional grounds would have restored the faith of the American people that this country truly is exceptional and are firmly rooted in the rule of law. What do we have now....a Marxist dictatorship to be. I cry for my country and will take up arms to defend it for my inheritors. God Bless America!

If it were just as simple as overcoming the people in power in Washington, that could be a challenge we could win, however, we are dealing with a new kind of welfare wanting American. The populace has changed. The so called melting pot has taken on too many tribes. I don´´t see combatting this flow.

I have to disagree. It doesn´t matter how many votes Republicans get in the future if the Democrats continue their massive voter fraud tactics. If machines can flip votes, if ballot boxes can be stuffed, if illegals can cast millions of votes, if voter fraud isn´t challenged state by state, it´s over.

# 1 My niece has been waitressing for two years since graduating from college.
Her degree in a very esoteric field has not proved practical in this environment for employment.
She still voted Obama ,
despite everything the rest of us did to try and convince her to vote Romney.
Many of the her generation think of Republicans as old fogeys with outdated ideas.
Tons of 14 year olds today will be voting in the next presidential election and many geriatric Republicans will have passed on.
By 2016 , we will have had 16 years of Democrat presidents
and only 8 with a Republican , with Bush
barely getting elected the first term.
We lost Senate and House seats last week.
The times they are a changin and not for the better
as far as national elections go.
Wish I could be as optimistic as Jonah .

#12 is correct. We´ve had decades of dumbed down socialist education of our young who no longer think there´s anything exceptional about America and have no understanding of Founding. This has Communism written all over it.

Bravo, Jonah! Well said, well written.

#14 - The problem is that the Great American Melting Pot was taken off the stove in the Sixties, and chilled solid by the poisonous Commie battle cry, "Diversity!" Now we have great chunks of the populace who proudly and loudly refuse to assimilate to create a whole new people, AMERICANS, as we were doing before. Now these good people are Hispanics, Muslims, Blacks, whatever above all and before all, adamantly opposed to assimilating (except on their terms exclusively.)

Stay funking, folks. It´s over.

And JFK set the parameters in his only Inauguration speech on Friday, 20 January 1961, at 13 p.m. (ET) when he famously said:

"Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country."

In 2012, the new Democrats (and other takers) were the party of the first part. Those who cared more for their country were the party of the second part.

The second part lost.

Peace, Jonah, et al., but it ain´t gonna get any better.

We didn´t just lose an election, we (long ago) lost our schools, our courts, our media, and our spines. Get used to being enslaved, folks. You asked for it.

Under Islam, the choices for us are convert, be subjugated, or die.

Under Obama regime rule, the choices are exactly the same. Convert to being a taker. Be subjugated by subsidizing the takers. And the third is interesting...

Honest elections. Why can´t we get them investigated? It´s been this way for ages and it was 10 worse this time.

I am pretty sick of Republicans. They cannot fight, they will not fight, they don´t know how to fight. It seems like I have been on the losing team for too long. As Sarah said, it´s time to not only change the team, but the uniforms. OK, I´m ready. Where do I sign up?

When the well runs dry, they will migrate to OUR Turf. FEMA has converted more voters to the Conservative Party than all the advertisements this year. Red Cross and AARP are losing credibility. O´ Bamacare will create more conservatives and less doctors. Time will heal our Country. If we have time.

I think Jonah´s spot on, but I also think while we were building a few conservative pubs, think tanks and media outlets, the left was building, as David Horowitz would put it, a Leviathan by stitching together an incestuous network of left-wing "non-profits", think-tanks, universities, media outlets and lawyer organizations.

We have to start building and building fast or we´re always going to be playing catch up to the corrupt thugs that now OWN the pop culture of this country.

I´m four years´ tired of fighting the national scene. I´ve concluded that national gov´t will be irrelevant because it´s inevitably bankrupt, so I´m preparing as best I can. I´m recently elected to our local school board, and arguing for independence and a stop to taking the drugs of grants provided incessantly by the state and feds. WA somehow just passed a charter school measure that the teacher unions opposed. Public school boards can form one. Local control over more and more of our fate is what I´m fighting these days. We all need to do that, and build to national from there.

There is a tipping point.
The government unions, Academia and the MSM have been working hand-in-hand for well over 50 years, using the Alinsky playbook---see the SEIU, the Caesar Chavez Farm Workers movement and the election and re-election of Barack Hussein Obama.
We have likely gone over the tipping point---I believe it will be seen retrospectively to prove it, much like the frog being boiled 1 degree at a time.

I´m sorry if I don´t share your optimism.

Democracy in the United States is dead and the US is henceforth ruled by a single party system.
The republicans should stop contesting from now on...

unless you fix the voter registration & identification plus ensure that all voting machines are not tampered with & election monitors are not chased away from polling stations. And ensure ethical GOTV operations.

Otherwise, don´t bother. Democrats will always win.

In middle America, they are called Blue Dog Democrats. Here in the PNW, they are called Republicans (Massachusetts too). As long as they are voting like Democrats, we might as well vote for Democrats.

The GOP is Irrecoverable. This last election has made them extinct, or at least well on their way there. What Conservative third party will rise in its stead?

Yeah, I agree with Jonah. There is not one single thing the Donks can do that we cannot later undo - this is a real democracy. They reorganize the govt, we re-re-organize it. They stack the Court, we stack it higher. They woo the Latinos, we woo them back. Let us remember that Martin Luther King was a Republican, and not give up on African-Americans either. We can do all these things.

Start by attacking the wallets of the left as they are attacking the wallets of the so- called "rich." Form a list of conservative business owners, both national and by state, and do your level best to patronize the conservatives first.

We are fighting a war, as our forefathers did in the Revolution, and in other major conflicts such as World Wars I and II. The enemies are within our country this time. We can and will win this battle to preserve our nation. The first shots have been fired, by "American" weapons, at American citizens, at Benghazi. In truth, other shots were fired before, at our slain border agents, at Andrew Breitbart. The enemy takes aim at American generals now, and at our military by denying them the vote in the recent election.

While "These are the times that try mens´ souls, we have the great advantage of not being soul-less.

I´ll be saving some money by not renewing the Weekly Standard (no sense in subsidizing a coward like Kristol) and time by not listening to Hannity who´s also a coward.//My grieving is over. I´m in the angry, war planning, logistical preparation phase (bought six US Army surplus like new sleeping bags for $200 tonight).//If you spend $200-300 per month over a period of time having done your research and watching the sales, it´s amazing how much prepping you can do.//With enough good men and women, it´s certainly not over.

A Tale of Two Letters: Why the
Peace Process Went Poof
Commentary Magazine, by Rich Richman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/13/2014 5:46:11 PM     Post Reply
Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

Nevada GOP removes social issues from platform,

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Generally, when we hear stories about the federal government ripping off the businessman, we tend to think of tales of tax increases or burdensome regulations. But a different type of story crosses our desk this weekend, as a solar power consortium – who already received a quarter billion in grants and tax incentives – takes Uncle Sam to the courthouse because they feel they should have gotten millions more. Federal investigators will spend the next year going through the books of two solar-energy companies tied to billionaire Elon Musk in an effort to show the businesses overvalued sales contracts in

EARLIER this year, a column by a Harvard undergraduate named Sandra Y. L. Korn briefly achieved escape velocity from the Ivy League bubble, thanks to its daring view of how universities should approach academic freedom. Korn proposed that such freedom was dated and destructive, and that a doctrine of “academic justice” should prevail instead. No more, she wrote, should Harvard permit its faculty to engage in “research promoting or justifying oppression” or produce work tainted by “racism, sexism, and heterosexism.” Instead, academic culture should conform to left-wing ideas of the good, beautiful and true, and decline as a matter of

IN THE WORLD of early-20th-century African-American music and people obsessed by it, who can appear from one angle like a clique of pale and misanthropic scholar-gatherers and from another like a sizable chunk of the human population, there exist no ghosts more vexing than a couple of women identified on three ultrarare records made in 1930 and ’31 as Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley. There are musicians as obscure as Wiley and Thomas, and musicians as great, but in none does the Venn diagram of greatness and lostness reveal such vast and bewildering co-extent.

There’s something sinister on the airwaves. It’s sloppy, and it’s cynical, but sinister all the same, and it’s race-hate spewing from the absolute top of the Democratic Party. On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity” that no other “attorney general has ever had to deal with.” ["Black vote," check.] That same day, Politico published an interview where House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi more openly stoked race-hate, saying conservative opposition to amnesty “has a scent of Japanese internment.” ["Asian vote," check.] Later that

White House to send Biden to Kiev

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Saturday that Vice President Joe Biden would travel to Kiev this month to show support for the Ukrainian government as U.S. officials expressed new concern over "violence and sabotage" by militants it said were apparently supported by Russia in eastern Ukraine. Biden, set to travel to Kiev on April 22, will become the most senior U.S. official to visit the country since the crisis began there.

It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise. She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship. President Obama nevertheless

ABC Apologizes for Story That Connected

ABC News Vice President Jeffrey Schneider has apologized for a story on his network that connected a CEO who supports traditional marriage to the Westboro Baptist Church and their offensive "God hates f**s" signs. Mr. Schneider contacted the Media Research Center on Thursday after our social media department requested members call and complain about the comparison. Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was ousted earlier this month when it was revealed that he donated $1000 in 2008 to Proposition 8. As Good Morning America reporter Linzie Janis explained the story on April 4, footage of the completely unrelated Westboro protesters holding "soldiers died

For Attorney General Eric Holder,
Justice is for Democrats only

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.” Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens had an op-ed piece in the Washington Post a couple of days ago that still has my brain doing backflips. He claims that, “Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the wisdom of such rules and to evaluate the costs and benefits that rule changes can be expected to produce.” Stevens certainly did not believe this when he signed onto decisions overturning Texas’s sodomy law, or when arguing that state laws limiting abortion were unconstitutional, or when striking down Louisiana’s death penalty for raping a child (this is

Students are fed up with the meager portion sizes and bland taste of Michelle Obama-mandated school lunches. They’ve stunned their parents and the rest of America with pictures like this:(Snip for photos and tweets)Now, some Texas teens are taking it a step further. The students, who are part of their high school’s Turning Point USA chapter, are launching a #LunchMovement with one simple message: “No More, Mrs. Obama.” The Healthy, Hunger-free Kids Act has been in effect for a few years now. Yet, it seems to have done just the opposite of its stated intent. Kids aren’t getting enough to eat

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
