Updated: RNC is STUPID!! How to solve the problem of a large field of candidates in the early GOP presidential debates
PLEASE GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS DIARY FOR THE UPDATE, which demonstrates RNC stupidity ( Reince…tell us WHY you’re agreeing to this) **************************************************************** The NY Times, and other members of the MSM, are now busy wondering just what the RNC is going to do with all those presidential candidates when the debates start. Well, actually, that’s not quite right. More likely they’re busy chortling | Read More »
After Hillary loses in 2016, what’s the future of the Democrat Party?
Among the silliest books ever published are those that attempt to extrapolate a single event into a semi-apocalyptic vision of the future. Kevin Phillips did so in 1969 with “The Emerging Republican Majority.” Not to be outdone, in 2003, John Judas produced “The Emerging Democratic Majority.” My personal “favorite,” as one who spent a career in the financial services industry, is James Glassman’s 2000 | Read More »
Triage. A proposed first-step solution for the nation’s “Baltimores.” But is it a conservative solution?
If we look at the utter mess that is Baltimore, and the total failure of decades of liberal policies that have all but destroyed the black family in this country, and given rise to dozens of “Baltimores” in other urban city areas (see: Detroit, Philadelphia, Newark, Atlanta, Chicago, etc…) at first glance, it seems an all-but-impossible situation to solve. There’s an inclination among some, if | Read More »
Chairman Gowdy: You MUST change the questioning procedure when Hillary testifies
It’s just been reported that Hillary Clinton will appear before the House Select Committee on Benghazi this month. She has refused Gowdy’s request to appear twice, the first time in a closed door session. Obviously, she has a strategy in mind. I don’t know what will come of it, as Gowdy has stated that he must first have ALL the relevant emails before she can | Read More »
Chris Christie is the Republicans’ secret weapon in 2016
In order to guarantee that Hillary Clinton loses the 2016 election, is it imperative that Chris Christie remain a reasonably viable candidate for the GOP nomination. Why, you ask? Easy. Christie can be one of the most effective weapons Republicans can deploy against Hillary. Both Christie and Hillary have a lot in common. Both have been accused of doing bad stuff. Christie, of organizing an | Read More »
New slogan for Baltimore: “Black lives don’t matter to blacks who already got their ‘piece of the pie.’ “
Remember “The Jeffersons?” “Movin’ on up…” Protesters in Ferguson, Baltimore, and elsewhere tell us that “Black Lives Matter.” To prove their point, they riot, loot, pillage, destroy. OOPSIE! Baltimore is a majority black city. The mayor, police commissioner, and city council are all black, as is most of the top administration of the school system, and the fire department. And it’s been that way | Read More »
GOP should use “Baltimore” to defeat Obama’s amnesty
At some time in the near future, the riots in Baltimore will subside, people will begin the clean up, and attempt to rebuild their shattered lives. And the inevitable claims, counterclaims, and recriminations will begin. We’ll hear yet again about the “root causes”: poverty, bad housing, lousy schools, no jobs….. We’ll be told that the answer is MORE!!! MORE of everything. MORE money, MORE programs, and | Read More »
Judging by the body language and facial expressions of George Stephanopoulous and Lanny Davis, Hillary is in deep doo-doo.
Peter Schweizer, the author of “Clinton Cash,” did two live interviews today on the Sunday shows. He was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on ABC and Chris Wallace on FOX. Stephanopoulos’ ties to the Clinton’s are well known. Indeed he spend more time trying to discredit Schweizer than he did examining the facts and allegations raised in the book. Wallace’s interview of Schweizer was followed by | Read More »
Could Democrats and Independents actually pick the GOP nominee for President?
The Republican field of candidates for the White House is both wide and deep, a baker’s dozen, and happily dominated by conservatives to a large extent. For the first time since 1980, we are on the cusp of picking a candidate with solid conservative credentials. It is also more than possible that Democrats and independents will play a key, if not decisive role in picking | Read More »
Why is Bob Menendez smiling today? Hint: What did I do different from Hillary?
It’s been a rough few weeks for NJ Democrat Senator Bob Menendez. After days of leaks about an impending indictment, Eric Holder’s Justice Department (after a long and lengthy investigation), finally dropped the hammer on ole Bob, accusing him of multiple counts of corruption, influence peddling, etc. Menendez was forced to step aside as ranking member on the Foreign Relations committee, while speculation runs that | Read More »
