DeMint to GOP elders: Game over,
pals. Insists conservatives
must drive agenda

Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/26/2013 11:23:02 PM

Sporting his new hat as the head of the Heritage Foundation, former Sen. Jim DeMint said Saturday said that conservatives should not rely on the GOP establishment to deliver the movement´s message. He said it is time to take matters into their own hands. Addressing the National Review Institute´s "Future of Conservatism" summit, Mr. DeMint said that conservatives must take charge of the way the movement is perceived. "Conservatives have given the sole distribution rights of our ideas, our beliefs and our values - at least in the political sphere - to the Republican party,"

Sorry...can´t hear anything from someone walking away..
What? Who ARE you, sir?
Spearmint? Yes, I´m sure it´s a very popular flavor.
Otherwise...get the @$& out of my face, DeMint.
I have never met cheaper whores.

I´m with #1. These alleged "conservatives" have cost us 5 Senate seats (akin, mourdock, O´donnell, buck, angle) and now their golden boy, Rubio, is trying to shove amnesty down our throats which will cost the GOP dearly in a lot of western swing states. They drug Romney through the ground for months after ot was clear he´d be the nominee. Now theyrelentless attack, Boehner, the only dude on Capitol Hill with any power that isn´t a Socialist. Let these folks go peacefully to start their own Talk Show Host Party.

You got it. Let us go peacefully. So you dems-in-disguise can help Obama destroy the country. Face it. The Republican party is worthless - except for you bureaucrats who aren´t quite ruthless enough to make it as dems. You don´t really give a rat´s rear end about this country, other than as a game piece. You´ve obviously no love for it. Kiss off and die.

DeMint thought Akin was a great candidate and supported him even after his sick remark.

Don´t blame the conservatives: The D.C. poobahs have picked two losers: McCain and Romney, the supposedly electable "moderates" who would appeal to the independents. Both got skunked. Then the party poobahs set up Sarah Palin and turned on her, blaming her for McCain´s loss. She kept McCain from losing by and even larger margin.

I had breakfast with DeMint the other day. He´s a great guy, always has been, and is determined to find a way for conservatism to find its primacy once again in American life. He´s real smart and has some critically important ideas. I think he´s a force for good.

Let´s not be like leftists who love to eat their own.

DeMint needs to start a revolution... The Heritage Party. The GOP doesn´t seem to realize the majority of conservatives are like Tea Partiers... not Appeasers.

The left have successfully demonized the name GOP, the same way they demonized smokers. Lying over & over & over again until the masses believe them.

Whenever their true agenda becomes clear (commies) the left always invents a new name for their initiatives.... GW to CC.

Time to re-brand conservatives... and use Tea Party peeps to shout it from the rooftops. Boehner bent over to Obama when he removed TPers from committees... Time for us to move on.

The problem #6 is no one eats their own as fast as ultra social conservatives but since they can´t force all Republicans to conform like the progressives can they will never accept a different opinion.
Which faction can form an interactive whole that honors everyone´s concept of the Conservative model long enough to win?
They all claim Regan but golly gee he welcomed democrats in his winning circle . Now we can´t even get hard set faction to vote in an important election in defense of the country and Constitution.
I guess the establishment who ever that might be is more the enemy than the Constitution destroyers. Are the real conservatives:
1. Social purists
2. Fiscal hawks only
3. Libertarians
4. The most hated moderates nastily referred to as RINO
5. conservative defenders of the Constitution who may not follow the hard line?
When you can put the nation above childish
divisions let us know. We who vote and accept other ideas will salute you then.

It´s always the same people on this sight that attack REAL conservatives. Enough of you republican liberals; it´s time you sit down and let real conservatives run the show! We´ve had enough of the GOP establishment force feeding the RINOS down our throats, just to have the end result being the communist still residing in our White House.

How terribly sad that establishment Republicans can´t face the truth about the 2008 and 2012 losses. Its always the same - insult and blame the conservatives. We have pretty much seen it all here today. Let´s see, everything from DeMint is a quitter to blaming Palin for "not helping Romney." Senator DeMint is a respected and admired statesman for good reasons. I am so thankful he has taken a strong stand for his country.

Keep on supporting the GOP and their milquetoast sycophants and you might as well hammer your own chains in place and save the Dems the trouble. You know who you are, the little GOP lapdogs and apologists who cannot see getting yourselves out into the real fight for our country.

Heritage is probably the most well known right wing think tank but I´m not seeing any breakthrough ideas coming from them.Sorry but I´m not a DeMint fan at all.To me,he´s a far right demagogue who lacks any sense of pragmatism.Him and a couple other guys insist on a balanced budget amendment,which even if it passed wouldn´t be worth the paper it´s written on.Plenty of states have BBA while continuing to operate deep in red ink. A federal BBA would have "emergency" loopholes in it and bills could be passed off budget like the Iraq war.

Most of the problems in this country are pretty easy to solve with simple common sense.The problem is the political will to do them. Obama´s ignoring all the roadblocks while pushing a far left agenda,the same thing could be done if you had conservatives controlling the 3 branches.

Republicans are losing elections because they lack ideas to solve problems.There´s an old adage about people voting for a lousy plan over no plan at all and that´s how Obama is doing it.The left has no ideas either but they don´t need one when they´re willing to pull out all stops to buy and import votes.

The GOP establishment is the biggest impediment to conservatism. It has to go. They have done nothing to shrink government, nothing to simplify the tax code. They haven´t repealed a single socialist program. It´s funny how the most radical Democrats never get thrown under the bus by their party, but the GOP cowers at charges of racism or strong anti-abortion views.

What some goblins on this site want you to believe, and oh they want you to believe it, is that conservatives are the problem, not the One Party in D.C. that pretends it is two parties.

If they can keep you occupied with feeling guilty with the meme of Republicans "eating their own," they will be able to prevent conservatives from breaking free of the GOP establishment. Conservatives must understand that Boehner and his ilk are as dangerous as anyone on the Left, because they hide behind the GOP curtain. At best, their agenda is to maintain their position and power; at worst they are in league with Dem goals. It is safe to say we have seen both agendas.

If conservatives would wake up and admit what has happened, stand on principle, and LEAVE the Republicans to their own devices, the elitist GOPers would quickly wither in power and ability to advance a losing political agenda. They continue to exist only because a sizable number of conservatives have yet to see the writing on the wall, and because there are many right-leaning pundits who also refuse to wake up or are afraid.

I´m with DeMint..problem is the ole rinos will ignore him.. The rinos forget the 2010 election was won by the tea party... not Rove, Krystal, McCain ...The Heritige Foundation selected DeMint because he´s a true conservative. The rinos in the senate ignored DeMInt´s great suggestions, they just went along with the same ole boy´s club.

Every time Jim DeMint asked me for a donation I sent money. I believed in what he was doing, recruiting conservatives. I am glad to see him as head of the Heritage Foundation, to which I have also regularly contributed. However, I am not one of those conservatives who hate Republican moderates, want to destroy them and fight total war against them. I find enough enemies within the Democrat party.

Any time I hear someone calling pro lifers "social purists", it makes my blood boil.
Abortion is murder, and opposing it is a core conservative value. It isn´t an issue to be argued, any more than are the the first and second amendments.

I´m with #6 and #22...they are among the brightest and best. I always read and think about what they have said. The GOP has a dilemma...to follow the Good Old Boys who used to run the party or bring in more conservative thinkers. The trouble is, these two factions don´t play well together.

Watch Hannity´s special tonight "Boomtown." (Whether you like Hannity or can´t stant him, this show is like his show about Bill Ayers; it is illustrative.) I think the problem he highlights may lead us to a very difficult solution to this nations´ problems. Long-serving incumbents are not serving the nation, but rather themselves.

Conservatives were told to shut up and sit down and would only be called when money and votes were needed. Bonehead threw conservatives off committees. As stated here many times before, Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. Your either conservative or not, no half measures, all in or all out. Read the Declaration of Independence, then come back and tell me about half measures.

The so called fight between RINOs and Conservatives reminds one of a National Geo show about competing animals quarreling at a drought shrunk watering hole. The real problem is that popular support like the flow of abundant fresh water has been lost. All Republicans should first focus on restoring that instead of making things easier for the Bolsheviks.

#6,20,22 I agree. We are told to sit down and shut up like poster reminded us. All the posters on Lcom who are Rove supporters..just to keep from saying rino...have doomed us to losing our country. We are headed for a long downward fall and I personally do not expect to see us recover. Am no longer a Republican because the Rino´s are no longer republicans in name only...they are the only Republicans left. The ones of us who realize that appeasement, stupidity, moderates, reach across the aisles, and clinging to their own office is all Repubs care about. Those of us who are conservatives are not welcome in the party so we are leaving in droves. Rejoice moderates, you have won. Own the end of our country.

The increasing number of accomplished and appreciated Republican Governors could certainly tell the national level GOP leadership something about winning elections, simply because they are and they are closer to the citizens who elect them in their respective states and thus they REMAIN more responsive to the will of the people whom they represent and to their oaths of office. Ideally, they remain OF the people, BY the people and FOR the people, humbled by always remembering they are representative public servants who are responsible TO the people, ...NOT the other way around.

In contrast, too many GOP pols at the national GOP leadership leadership level have become so entrenched in the intemidating beltway PC statist, ´culture,´ that they simply disregard their fellow citizens back home in order to fit in with the rest of the pols in, ´´Boomtown,´´ who have themselves become drunk with power OVER the people instead of being responsive TO the people, ...and the U.S. Constitution which the elected swear an oath to uphold.

Such pols who become so intemidated & dazzled by, ´´Boomtown´s,´´ very own special, ´communal,´ siren song to conform & perfectly fit in with the beltway´s, ´cookie-cutter fraternity,´ of elitist pols, become disconnected from those who elected them and who remain working hard and living their lives back in their own states. ...Who even listens to THEM anymore since such statist pols would rather hear the approval of by the dems´ alphabet media cookie-cutter clones? on TV?!

Where are the principled, ´´Mr. Smith Goes To Washington,´´ voices in the GOP leadership anymore? Gov. Sarah Palin is a, ´´Mr. Smith,´´ as was Pres. Reagan a couple of decades before. DeMint is right!

#30. Either you are for the Constitution or you are not..being in the middle of the road makes you road-kill.
Democrats are now the far extreme left side of the party..progressives is what they call themselves, which is a soft word for communist.
I find no common ground with high spending, free stuff politicians who pander to the dumb masses, buy votes, cheat, lie and steal and are soft on illegal alien crime.
Add to that the fact that even the way you sneeze can get one accused of being racist, and they favor killing babies..JUST HOW does a conservative find common ground ?

Conservatism was incubated in classical Athens and advanced by ageless thinkers such as Cicero, the Scholastics, Burke, Pitt, de Maistre, Disraeli etc. The R party has nothing to do w/principled conservatism and never had. Ever. During its ascendancy, post Civil War, GOP orthodoxy was the secular and reformist progressivism of the Gilded Age. That all changed in ´32 when FDR won the progressive banner and the fight in DC has been over this banner, ever since. As Lincoln observed, a House divided against itself cannot stand and that is the crux of the GOP problem; the rank and file is center-right while the establishment is trendy lefty. Their POTUS/Senate nominees over the past 4 generations are proof positive of that; the latest exhibit being doofus Romney. Sadly many dim types refuse to grasp this. No matter. Effectively the GOP is a carcass in need of burial.

XXXIII, its cheaper to keep her. Reagan triumphed, Gingrich triumphed, Ryan and Palin and Jindal are disciples of Reagan and Kemp. The establishment has money, but nothing else, not ideas, no principles, no spiritual and intellectual foundation.
We must not be content to merely shut up and sit in the back seat, nor satisfied with holding the map--- these people, the one world, secular governmentalists you described must never again be entrusted with the car keys.
We know who they are, we must not be brainwashed.

What Belgium’s child euthanasia law
means for America and the Constitution
Washington Post, by Eugene Kontorovich    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 2/13/2014 11:29:09 PM     Post Reply
Belgium has just passed a law allowing euthanasia for children. The Low Countries allow for suicide and doctor-assisted suicide, but Brussels is the first to open to door to dealing death to children of any age. If the prospect of youngsters being helped to off themselves seems horrifying, do not worry – the law has “safeguards” to ensure all the killing will be purely voluntary: a psychologist has to certify that the child has “capacity or discernment” to understand what they are doing. Aside from its inherent significance, Belgium’s move requires us to revisit Roper v. Simmons, the 2005 Supreme

Obamacare’s war on jobs

In the ongoing saga of the Affordable Care Act, oddly referred to by Democrats as the law of the land even as it is amended at will by presidential fiat, we are beginning to understand the extent of its war on jobs. First, the Congressional Budget Office triples its estimate of the drop in the workforce resulting from the disincentive introduced by Obamacare’s insurance subsidies: 2 million by 2017, 2.3 million by 2021. Democratic talking points gamely defend this as a good thing because these jobs are being given up voluntarily. Nancy Pelosi spoke lyrically about how Obamacare subsidies will

While Hillary Rodham Clinton has all but vanished, hitting the speaker’s circuit at $200,000 a pop and bouncing between her two palatial mansions in New York and Washington, the press corps is working overtime to rebuild her tarnished reputation. First came The New York Times with a lengthy “investigative” piece of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi terrorist attack. The 7,500-word tome ignored the former secretary of state’s role in the deaths of four Americans. What’s more, the Times never mentioned Mrs. Clinton — not once — and concluded that the attack “was fueled in large part by anger at an

When President Obama’s term expires in January 2017, we will have completed roughly one-sixth of the 21st century. How will the American political history of the period be remembered? Quite likely, it will be remembered, fairly or not, for two badly botched presidencies — one of them mainly for a botched war; the other mainly for a botched overhaul of our health care system. President Bush initiated a war that he hoped would help transform the Middle East for the better. The war went well at first. But then events failed to validate its primary stated justification — the alleged

LONDON — For the past three decades, many Britons had hoped the rigid class system that defined their country from Dickens to "Downton Abbey" was finally dying. Now they fear that class, their old bugbear, is back on the rise. From 1979, Britain was led for more than a decade by Margaret Thatcher, a grocer´s daughter, and then by John Major, the son of a music-hall entertainer. The current leader, David Cameron, is a descendent of King William IV whose Cabinet is stacked with men, like him, from the country´s toniest private schools and Oxford and Cambridge universities.

More ObamaCare Delays Won’t Save Dems

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term. Over the course of the last year, as the president’s signature accomplishment debuted with a

Late this afternoon, the Obama administration decided to delay for yet another year the health-care mandate that companies provide health insurance to their employees, this time to 2016. “It’s a double whammy here,” Charles Krauthammer said on Special Report tonight. Combining the recent CBO report finding that millions of Americans will choose to work less because of Obamacare and the people who will lose their jobs involuntarily as a result of the mandates, Obamacare is looking like a huge liability come November, Krauthammer explained. “They are getting tremendous complaints from small business that they can’t do this.

The first, “Son of God,” is produced by the married couple who brought “The Bible” to the History Channel and into households across the country — producer Mark Burnett and actress Roma Downey. “We really believed that people would show up in droves, but 100 million people was a big number,” Mr. Burnett said of the 10-hour miniseries’ total audience. “Before we knew those results, we’d already started on

The 2016 Democratic presidential field is likely to run to the left of President Obama, partly because candidates will try to distance themselves from his political baggage while jockeying for an increasingly liberal base of voters, analysts predict. Prospective candidates and their surrogates insist it’s too early to tell what kind of standing Mr. Obama will have with voters and whether he will be seen as damaged goods the way President Bush was for Republicans in 2008. But discontent is brewing within the Democratic Party over what some see as Mr. Obama’s concessions to Republicans. Those Democratic voters will be

Accenture, the contractor urgently tapped to help fix the federal health-insurance Web site, is a favorite of corporate America but has a record that includes troubled projects and allegations of ethical lapses, a review of the consulting giant’s history shows. At the University of Michigan, students and faculty members are protesting the school’s use of Accenture to help cut costs, citing a report by a committee of alumni and graduate students that said the firm has “a disturbing pattern of problematic past performance.” In North Carolina, glitches in an Accenture-configured computer system contributed to massive backlogs for food-stamp recipients, leading

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived. Woods and Doherty were killed

One guest thought the cost of the dress was close to $10,000. "Well, first of all, I love the dress on her because I think it´s so elegant and so simple. I mean, that shape is what we call the princess shape. It´s got that sort of poof at the bottom that´s very sort of billowy at the same time. It´s strapless. I think we want to call that French blue, maybe," said a guest. "Some people might call it periwinkle and it´s got this sort of jet bodice and everything, and I think it´s realy pretty.

Michelle Obama chose Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera for the gown she wore Tuesday to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande. The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before. It´s very French in terms of how ornate it

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.) said Tuesday that the committee’s investigation of the Internal Revenue Service found that 100 percent of the tax-exempt groups that were flagged and targeted with an audit were right-leaning. The Wall Street Journal reports: “We now know that the IRS targeted not only right-leaning applicants, but also right-leaning groups that were already operating as 501(c)(4)s,” Mr. Camp said in a statement. “At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for IRS surveillance, including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites and any other publicly available information.

Fiery Louis Farrakhan of Nation of Islam fame said during his weekly video sermon that white people have a history of stirring up trouble, and that Allah has chosen blacks “to give life” and sit at the “top of civilization.” He also “issued the final call,” as he termed it: “I say to the Pope and all the lovers of Jesus, if you desire, let’s have a showdown. You call the Jesus that you know, and I’ll call on the Jesus that I know, and let’s see which one of us really knows Jesus.” Mr. Farrakhan quoted widely from Elijah

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) defended Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday after the House passed a clean debt-limit bill that raised the ire of conservatives. King branded as “morons” many conservatives in the GOP caucus who consistently oppose any effort to pass the debt limit, asserting they are the same faction that led to the government shutdown last year. “This is the same group that back in September and October went into a government shutdown that everybody knew was a disaster,” King said on MSNBC. “They ended up looking like morons following Ted Cruz over the cliff.” King had been

People misunderstood New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo when he said conservatives “have no place in the state of New York,” the Democratic governor explained Wednesday. “I was not saying anyone should leave the state, right? And anyone who heard the comments knows that’s not what I was saying,” Cuomo said when asked about his comments at a press conference. “To the extent people want to have a political dialogue, that’s what it is.” Cuomo came under fire from conservatives last month when he said “extreme conservatives, who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay … have no place in the state of

Is demonic possession real or the manifestation of mental illness? In assisting priests in nearly 100 exorcisms, Adam Blai has become a true believer in good and evil, God and the devil. "If you’ve seen the things in the Gospels played out in front of you, it ceases to become faith. It’s knowledge,” says Blai. Former Allegheny County commissioner Bob Cranmer says he shares that same knowledge. He says his home was possessed. “I’ve seen it; I’ve seen crucifixes bent in half repeatedly. I’ve seen Rosary beads torn apart. That doesn’t happen,” said Cranmer. “That’s an evil. That’s not Casper
