Conservative ideas need
a new message

Washington Post, by Jim DeMint

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/11/2013 8:15:50 AM

The U.S. Senate reached an all-time low — a hard mark to achieve — last week as I said my goodbyes to rejoin the real world. The “fiscal cliff” theatrics ended with a predictable non-solution that raised taxes on all U.S. workers and added more weight to the millstone the federal government has hung around our necks. A day after that “achievement,” I left Congress and moved across the street to the Heritage Foundation, where the mission is to formulate and promote conservative ideas. It is from Heritage — of which I will become president in April

Good luck citizen DeMint. Mind changing is very difficult work; even when you have a better idea. As a sales rep I always enjoyed stories about how difficult it was to sell the first telephones, or clothes dryer or other truly good idea. Our culture and educational system has made this all the more difficult for Heritage to gain more converts to conservative ideas that work. I hope you can do this before time runs out for our republic.

I disagree. Messaging is subjected to politics, corruption and untruths. Messaging is "Marketing" - or "Lies".

I believe, Non-participation and non support of policies, ideology, (PARTIES!), legislation, cultural "norms", morals that are not in line with the Truths that are "self evident" in our Constitution and go against civil liberties and rights are the only way out of this cluster...

Lead by example and starve those systems, institutions and groups who go against these Truths of any dime or dollar or means of support for legitimacy.

Participation should be voluntary, always, when it comes to government. Let us not become that which we are NOT, and that which we are resisting against.

(e.g. How can you eat out less (saves money, and eliminates one method of taxation)? How can you pay down your debt? can you eliminate cable? Are you wise about which companies you give your money to and thereby support? Do you still give money to a political party? Can you volunteer loacaly?)

Well we are going to need some strong voice since the obama election gang will now be turned into a non-profit or Super Pac to spread his agenda wishes far and wide.

Although I cannot help but think of his minions as the Obama Flying Monkeys Propaganda Team.

What makes anyone think "politics" or "man" is the answer? God will not put up with this crap as a "client nation to God" & we are degenerate in every area. It might help if Americans would go to their pastors & priests & ask them for more patriotic & true Bible Doctrines to be taught or fire tham & get someone who will teach the "truth" - after all it´s all in there from amti same/sex marriage to free enterprise!!!! So sad (as a WWII brat) to see our Republic go down but as citizens we are responsible!!!!

When W.H.

(Snip) Private faces as well as unprejudiced organized bodies are fighting back against the discrimination against Israel and the outrageous lectures the state is given at the United Nations and other places by the non-democratic nations of the world. Recent examples of positive response by those standing for truth deserve commendation. One is the immediate response on March 9, 2014 taken by the Norwegian Cruise Line concerning one

Here´s an astonishing poll: David Freddoso at Conservative Intelligence Briefing links to a report by the Washington Post´s Aaron Blake that West Virginia 3rd district incumbent Rep. Nick Rahall trails Republican challenger state Sen. Evan Jenkins by a 54-percent to 40-percent margin. The poll was conducted by the Tarrance Group, a Republican firm which, like several Democratic and other Republican firms, has had a good record for reliability over the years. This is astonishing for several reasons. Rahall, first elected in 1976, is now the seventh most senior member of the House, with three of the more senior members retiring

I’ve made fun in the past of some Second Amendment advocates who see black helicopters full of Men in Black out to take their guns from them in every effort at regulating firearms. In the case of President Obama’s choice for Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy, they may be right. Wall Street Journal: A number of Senate Democrats have indicated that they might oppose President Barack Obama’s choice of Vivek Murthy for the post of U.S. Surgeon General, according to Senate aides, putting the nomination at risk over the issue of gun control. Dr. Murthy’s nomination is opposed by the National Rifle Association, the country’s

I watched a great old movie, set in the time period of the 1700s and starring Anthony Quinn. (Snip) Folks, true leaders pay a heavy price, which is why they, as do eagles, fly alone. Sarah Palin has led by example, displaying tremendous courage, backbone, and grit by standing up for conservative principles, traditional values, freedom, and liberty – even when some conservatives and establishment Republicans joined the chorus of liberals, Democrats, and MSM calling her a fool. Someone said that if you promote a lie long enough, for some, it becomes reality. Such is the case regarding Palin´s smarts. Meanwhile, Obama´s

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval is nearly impossible not to like. He has a sunny disposition and seems ever eager to work with Democrats, who have nary a bad word to say about him. He’s highly popular in Nevada, with approval numbers in the mid-60s, and he stays on message as well as anyone in politics. He is, in a phrase, the anti-Harry Reid. Which is why the prospect of Sandoval facing off against the occasionally dyspeptic, sharply partisan and manifestly unpopular Senate majority leader in the 2016 U.S. Senate race has some Republicans writing Reid’s political eulogy. “It would be

An event meant to celebrate diversity and combat racism at a Washington state community college has been cancelled after a flier emailed to guests said white people weren’t invited. A group of employees, under the name “Staff, Faculty and Administrators of Color,” at South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia sent an invitation to all 300 staffers to attend a diversity “happy hour,” a local news station reported.

A Baltimore City lawsuit settlement sparks major police policy and training reforms that affect everyone with a cell phone camera. The police department is putting it into writing so their officers fully understand. You can record them and they can’t do anything about it. First Amendment advocates call it a major victory. When police made an arrest at Pimlico four years ago, Christopher Sharp was one of several recording. Officers didn’t like it. “Do me a favor and turn that off. It’s illegal to record anybody’s voice or anything else,” an officer told Sharp. But that’s not true. Sharp says the officers took his phone

A bunch of aggrieved women led by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg launched a high-profile "public service campaign" this week to "ban" the word "bossy." Sandberg, Beyonce, Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham and first lady Michelle Obama have joined femme forces to combat this phantom menace. In their rarefied world, it´s a "very negative experience" and a crippling act of gender discrimination to be called bossy. "This isn´t a word we should use," Sandberg complained on National Public Radio. To which I say: Oh, buck up.

The chattering class loves to say Washington is broken. It’s not; this town is a well-oiled machine for special interests. Indeed, if you’re part of the corrupt nexus that encircles big government and special interests, Washington is your best friend. But there is some evidence that things are changing, and not only with the rise of the Tea Party. Last week, The Hill reported K Street cannot figure out how to lobby Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden, who recently became chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee. In Washington, the revolving door is a rite of passage. Staff work their way up, either

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges. Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) may be popular among hard-line conservatives nationally, but back home he’s in some hot water. According to an Emerson College poll, his favorability is underwater, by a margin of 43 to 48 percent. Moreover, his favorable/unfavorable rating with women is 39 to 50 percent.

SAN FRANCISCO - Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday called on the Republican Party to become more inclusive on issues like immigration. "We have a responsibility to those who do not yet have the liberties and the rights that we enjoy," Rice told a cheering crowd at the annual gathering of California Republicans in the San Francisco suburb of Burlingame. "We cannot abandon them ... We were once them." She did not offer a specific policy idea. The speech by Rice, who was secretary of state under President George W.

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

It’s been less than six months since Bret Stephens used a version of this headline, but four events in the last week have caused it to scream in my mind. Before I get into those four events, let me say that I understand the only way to stay remotely sane in Washington, D.C., is to ignore 85 percent of whatever is trending at any given moment. That said, there are times anyone less isolated than a Carthusian monk is unavoidably exposed to “news” that 25 years ago would be considered fit only for National Enquirer.

Late night comedian Bill Maher told his HBO “Real Time” audience on Friday that God was a “psychotic mass murderer.” He made the comments during a conversation on the biblical story of Noah and the upcoming Hollywood version of it that’s about to hit the big screen. “But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God,” Mr. Maher said, adding, “What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at?

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive.

In the midst of a discussion of his recent shopping trip to The Gap, the President stated: “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” (snip) It is quite obvious that the reason the 2009 mockery
