GOP

Romney was Right

Hat/Tip to Newsmax and Politico. He tried to tell America during his ill-fated 2012 run for the President of the United States, but it seems he wasn’t listened to. Well at least it’s for sure that Obama didn’t believe him or listen to him, judging by Obama’s spectacularly awful year and half since winning his second term. In the nearly 20 months since Mitt Romney lost the election to President Barack Obama, many of the former Massachusetts governor’s predictions have played out on the world stage. For instance, Romney called Russia the nation’s “number one geopolitical foe”; he pledged strong […]

Obama Not Scared of Boehner’s Lawsuit, Vows to keep ‘ruling’ by Executive Order

Hat/Tip to The Washington Times. Obama ignores Boehner’s lawsuit threat: ‘I’ll keep taking actions on my own’ It would seem that not only is President Obama unfazed by a Boehner lawsuit, he openly mocks Boehner and the GOP in the House by falling back on his favorite tactic, that of division politics. “Republicans in Congress keep blocking or voting down almost every serious idea. This year alone they’ve said no to raising the minimum wage, no to fair pay, no to student loan reform, no to extending unemployment insurance,” Mr. Obama said. “This obstruction keeps the system rigged for those […]

More Foul Play by the Thad Cochran Campaign Surfacing

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. There May Be Enough Invalidated Votes to Overturn Cochran Victory Time to stop the RNC game of playing nice and to take the gloves off. Via GWP The Chris McDaniel campaign has identified multiple Mississippi counties in which enough improper ballots have been cast that a legal challenge to the outcome of the election is warranted. This after Thad Cochran reportedly relied on 25,000-35,000 Democrat votes to pull him to victory in the June 24 runoff. UPDATE: The Cochran campaign is reportedly asking county clerks not to certify the voting rolls until the last day possible so […]

Tea Party/Conservative movement alive and well, making big gains

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. Some Tea Party Victories the Mainstream Media Refuses to Cover The far left wingnuts in power in the MSM are trumpeting the news that the Tea Party is dead. LOL Fat chance, but keep trying to fool yourself there, MSM. The mainstream media is back at it. The McDaniel campaign appears to be mounting a legal challenge to the dirty tricks that won Thad Cochran the GOP nomination, but the media has once again pounced on the narrative that the Tea Party is dead. We’ve heard it all before. It’s easy to announce […]

Race Baiting Democrat Gets Schooled by Republican Armed with Facts

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. It doesn’t matter that the Democratic Party was the Party that wanted to keep slavery. It doesn’t matter that the Democratic Party was the Party that gave us the Jim Crowe laws. It doesn’t matter that the Democratic Party gave us the KKK. It doesn’t matter that the Democratic Party was the Party that was against the Civil Rights movement of the ’60s. None of that matters to most Democrats today, in fact they don’t just deny it, they try and project that history onto the Republican Party. That’s what Brett Hulsey tries […]

Far Left Purges Moderates in Primaries, but only Tea Party are ‘extremists’

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Moonbats Push Democratic Party To Extreme Left As “Elizabeth Warren Wing” Purges Moderates In Primaries… Yep, we hear all the time how the Tea Party and those ‘evil’ Koch Brothers are pushing the GOP waaaaay to the right, but nary a peep from the MSM when the Moonbats push the Democrats to the left. Via The Atlantic: This year’s Republican primaries have been closely watched by pundits sifting for clues about the relative primacy of the GOP’s warring factions. But Democrats have primaries too—and this year, the left is winning many of them. National liberals point to […]

Texas GOP Straw Poll: Could we be looking at a Cruz/Carson Ticket in ’16?

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Well that’s the results of a GOP Straw Poll in which Conservative Republican and darling of the Tea Party, Ted Cruz and Conservative favorite, Dr. Ben Carson nabbed the number one and two spots. I know, I know! It’s way too early and it’s only a beauty contest, but hell, it’s still a good indicator that the electorate is tired of establishment candidates, and besides, Carson didn’t even show up at the convention – and STILL got second place! And how did Chris Christie do? Dead last at only 1.3% of the vote. Cruz captured 43.4 percent […]

Desperate Obama Afraid of GOP Senate, says it will be “unbearable”

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Well it looks as if Mr. Obama’s lifelong dream of being Supreme Ruler President of the United States is fading fast. It isn’t as much fun as he thought it would be, and in fact, if those mean old Republicans gain control of the Senate, then he’ll only be left with his pen and his phone… The president’s political world is more and more beyond his command. Instead, it is driven by Republicans in Congress, potentially power-shifting Senate races in states where Obama isn’t welcomed to campaign, and to speculation centered on Hillary Clinton’s agenda — not […]

Demands Explode for Trey Gowdy to Be Speaker of the House

Hat/Tip to The Conservative Tribune. John Boehner has said that he may not be Speaker of the House after this term. Boehner was the guest of honor at a sold-out luncheon with business owners in San Antonio. His future came up in a Q&A at the event with a Texas Tribune reporter, and Boehner did not commit to a full term as speaker in the 114th Congress that starts in January. “Listen, I’m going to be 65 years old in November,” Politico quoted Boehner as saying. “I never thought I’d live to be 60. So, I’m living on borrowed time.” […]

From The Mouths Of Babes and Childish Liberals

Kids do say the darndest things, as Art Linkletter use to say. It’s not that children necessarily make up lies. It’s that they have limited information  and understanding and they have vivid imaginations. And so, when a child fabricates a wild story to explain things they couldn’t possibly understand, we naturally find them hilarious. When adults do the same thing, it’s not so funny; especially when those adults are politicians or so-called news reporters. Last night, before shutting down my computer, I made a visit to BadBlue Uncensored News where I often find interesting subjects for a post. Almost instantly, […]

Karl Rove Declares War on Tea Party: Fundraising Drops by 98%

As so many people, including myself, have been pointing out, it seems that the establishment GOP is busily waging war against their own base.   The Tea Party movement had activated the Conservative base of the party in ways hadn’t been seen since the election of Ronald Reagan.  As such, the party establishment decided that the base must be “put in their place,” so they could return to voting for a “softer form of socialism.”   Karl Rove, know as the “evil emperor,” for his handling of the Bush presidency, was appointed to, or decided to, attack Tea Party oriented candidates all […]

The GOP Plan To Eat Its Own

I came across this American Spectator article by Jeffery Lord at the MB50 blog. It was the title, Karl Rove and the GOP Socialists, that captured my attention. Before getting into Karl Rove and his big-government Republican socialists, I need to be up front with you, dear readers, about my view of the geo-politics of America today. This humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in arrived at the conclusion some time ago that it no longer matters much who is elected to the House, the Senate, or even the Presidency. The Leviathan is out of control. Any […]

ObamaCare Damage: College Studenst Reacts, and it Isn’t Pretty

When college students were asked ObamaCare, the reactions were, shall we say, less than positive.  Chicks on the Right has more… Once again, I have suggested that the GOP, by reaching out with a viable message, can convert these people to GOP voters with relative ease. However, they are too concentrated on playing it safe with the democrats, and attacking the Tea Party, AKA, their base.  So, they’ll miss this classic opportunity. And that is why we call them the stupid party.

An Open Letter to the GOP Establishment

As the policies and actions of the Obama Administration have become increasingly recognized as destructive, the Republican Party establishment may believe that they have “default” support among Conservative and Independents for the upcoming election cycle.  I would urge you to examine this more closely.  As you may have noticed, the approval ratings for Republicans are still quite low.  There are multiple reasons for this beyond the fact that the left and the media are against Republicans. I believe that these low ratings are due to the Party’s abandoning of Conservative principals.  After George W. Bush was elected, government continued to […]

GOP: Defending Main Street or Selling It Out?

In February of this year, Michelle Malkin wrote: “This is war.” She was referring to Karl Rove’s plan to use his Super PAC, American Crossroads, to put an end to the Tea Party movement. Rove and his big money backers want to make sure that statist GOP incumbents do not lose in the primaries to Tea Party backed conservative candidates. Ms. Malkin is right. It is war! And, now we learn that another regiment has joined in the battle to destroy the Tea Party conservatives. Maggie’s Notebook has what I consider a “must read” post for any conservative who wants […]

Ezekiel Emanuel Interviewed by Megyn Kelly Regarding ObamaCare: He’s a Jerk

We’ve covered Ezekiel Emanuel before, starting back in 2009.  In fact, we called him “EZKILL” Emanuel, for the following reasons… Strict youngest-first allocation directs scarce resources predominantly to infants. This approach seems incorrect. The death of a 20-year-old woman is intuitively worse than that of a 2-month-old girl, even though the baby has had less life. The 20-year-old has a much more developed personality than the infant, and has drawn upon the investment of others to begin as-yet-unfulfilled projects…. Adolescents have received substantial substantial education and parental care, investments that will be wasted without a complete life. Infants, by contrast, […]

GOP: Grand Old Poltroons

“Republican leadership has completely lost its way. Not only is this proposal a full surrender- it’s a complete surrender with presents for the Democrats. Apparently Mitch McConnell’s idea of a ‘compromise’ is to increase the debt limit, fully fund a broken health care law, and promise talks of increasing spending down the road.” – Matt Kibbe “We have the best government that money can buy.” – Mark Twain The dirty deal is done.  Mitch McConnell sold what was left of his soul for $2 billion, and Barack Obama and his cronies get to spend another trillion dollars of your money. […]

GOP: Inept By Definition?

in·ept   [in-ept, ih-nept]  Show IPA adjective 1. without skill or aptitude for a particular task or assignment; maladroit: He is inept at mechanical tasks.She is inept at dealing with people. 2. generally awkward or clumsy; haplessly incompetent. 3. inappropriate; unsuitable; out of place. 4. absurd or foolish: an inept remark. No where does the ineptitude of Republicans more clearly on display than their absolute inability to articulate an easily understood message to the public on any serious issue; like ObamaCare, for example. The good Dr. Thomas Sowell wrote a blistering analysis of the GOP’s messaging problem the other day. This was his opening volley: If the continued existence of mathematics depended on the ability of the Republicans to defend the proposition that two plus two equals four, that would probably mean the end of mathematics and of […]

Some Quick Facts and Thoughts on The OMG! Government Shutdown

I just have some quick thoughts on the government shutdown, and the stupid political theater that I detest.  So, here is some stream of consciousness… 1.  I really hate agreeing with the GOP Stupid Party, but they are doing real good in terms of trying to delay or defund ObamaCare.  The law is hurting people already, it’s only going to hurt more once fully implemented. 2.  In a sense, they are helping the Democrats.  If the law takes effect, and the exchanges aren’t ready, the computer systems fail, and people’s information is stolen, the Democrats will pay dearly in the […]

GOP Adds Conscience Clause for ObamaCare to Continuing Resolution

In a move that can be categorized under “Epic Win,”  the House Republicans added a Conscience Clause clause to ObamaCare in their most recent continuing resolution. Right Scoop has the details… CNN – House Republicans have added a measure aimed at limiting contraceptive coverage to the spending bill coming up for a vote Saturday night, a spokesman for Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kansas, told CNN. A senior House leadership aide confirmed that development. The so-called “conscience clause” would allow employers and insurers to opt out of preventative care for women which they find objectionable on moral or religious grounds. That prominently […]

Senator Mike Lee says, ‘From Day One, The Country Was Misled About What Was in The Bill’

Senator Mike Lee of Utah demonstrated his grasp of the obvious regarding the recently passed, and little read Immigration Bill Mother of all Democratic Voter Drives. CNS News has the video… This is a situation where statists and idiots of both parties united and passed a abomination of a immigration bill.  To see some GOP “all stars” voting for this blatantly deficient pig is deeply disappointing.

The Dictionary of Barack Obama

We here at the worldwide headquarters of Manhattan Infidel pride ourselves on our knowledge of words.  For words are the medium through which we communicate.  The wrong choice of words can lead to misunderstanding.  Like the other night at the bar when I asked the college girl if she would like to touch it.  She misunderstood me.  Hence the taser.  Perhaps a different choice of words would have resulted in a different outcome.  I’ll never know.  Especially now that I’ve been ordered to stay 50 feet away from her. What was I talking about?  Oh yes.  Words.  As as service […]

Let it Burn: Should the GOP Allow Obama to Raise Taxes?

An idea has been mentioned that perhaps the GOP should simply vote “present” for any “fiscal cliff” vote, and allow Obama to raise all the taxes they want.  Then, as the thinking goes, Obama and the Democrats will take the blame for the job losses and such that result.  The Trifecta panel, via PJ Media, discusses this… While the panel only lightly discussed the media’s role in any scenario  I think it’s important.  Because, even if the GOP gives Obama exactly what he wants, it will never be Obama’s fault.  Even if the exact tax increases that Obama requests are found to be […]

In the end we will all pay for this QE3 deception

  In the Art of War Sun Tzu states that “all warfare is based on deception.”  Elections are about war; an ideological war for the hearts and minds of the electorate.  Candidates attack and counterattack each other until the day after Election Day when one emerges victorious and the other concedes defeat.  So if election campaigns can be viewed as war then one can conclude that deception is used to mask truth and divert the attention of the electorate away from the issues that truly matter.  So far this election cycle President Obama has been masterful at deflecting and deceiving the people.  […]

The Conservative Resistance Is On The Path To Victory

How’s that for starting out the week on a positive note? In a long article, on the order of 3000 words, Daren Jonescu at American Thinker makes the case for our ultimate victory. By the second paragraph, I was hooked and had to keep reading to see where his thought thread was leading. In essence, he makes the case that our 100 year history of losing every major policy battle is what is leading us to victory. It is not so much that we will finally win the final battle. On the contrary, it is the frustration of our long and growing resistance […]
