Momma Mia!

Love it! Mia Love won the Republican nomination and will be running against Democrat Doug Owens, the Salt Lake City attorney, and is predicted to win easily by many prognosticators. I certainly hope so. This lady is a conservative fireball, and will be a nice pick-up seat for the R's in Utah's 4th district.

Newt: The Real Danger in Ukraine, WWI Centennial: Updated

2014 marks 100 years since WWI. Newt Gingrich compares and contrasts current events with those preceding The Great War, said to be "the war to end all wars". Obviously, it was not, and there will certainly be more.

Article: The Real Danger in Ukraine-by Newt Gingrich

This year is the centennial of the First World War. One-hundred years ago this month, in April 1914, no one thought there would be a war. But war began, triggered by events in Eastern Europe, by the end of July. It came as an enormous shock, in retrospect almost like the Titanic hitting an iceberg.

John Kerry: The World is Ready To Act Against Russia

And not only do we really mean it this time, we meant it every other time. Can't you see the seriousness in my face? It ain't long for nothin'. It longs for you to get in line and tow, and tow you will, current US leadership notwithstanding.

You may think that because Russia comes before USA alphabetically, that you can come before us with your propagandist BS. You can't. We own propagandist BS (with kindest regards to NATO).

Snatching Defeat From Victory's Jaws

Loser, loser,_____. Do you see a trend? The GOPe seems to think it's a good idea to stick with the tried and true game plan. Back the most moderate possible candidate, steamroll all other primary candidates, lose the general election. I don't think they really "plan" to lose, I just think they are not learning from past mistakes.

The GOPe is going to lose a large portion of it's base if they do this again in 2016. It may put a democrat in the White House, but many conservatives will refuse to vote for another tepid candidate...the lesser of two evils.

It doesn't matter if we have another Bush White House or another Clinton White House...we know the results would be similar either way. I predict a mass exodus away from the GOP if they choose this route again.

Jeffrey Lord does a fantastic job of trying to set them straight...let's hope they take his advice.


Headline: JEB BUSH AND THE GOP DONOR PROBLEM (Anti-base politics can defeat 2016 nominee)-by Jeffrey Lord

Donald Trump looked out over the audience of New Hampshire conservative activists and mentioned the name “Jeb Bush.” On April 12, the Hill reported the reaction this way:

“You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day,” he said, with quiet boos and angry murmurs erupting from the crowd at the mention of Bush’s name.

“And he was talking about people that come into this country illegally, they do it for love,” he continued, with the boos growing louder.

Trump added, to laughter from the crowd: “And I said, say it again I didn’t get — that’s one I’ve never heard before … I understand what he’s saying, but, you know, it’s out there.”

GOPe

Bush drew considerable conservative backlash when he made the comments in a recent interview, but defended them at a Connecticut Republican Party dinner on Thursday, where he further urged “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.”

Fifteen days earlier, on March 29, the Washington Post headlined this story:

Influential Republicans working to draft Jeb Bush into 2016 presidential race

This story began as follows:

LAS VEGAS — Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy.…

Many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet, according to interviews with 30 senior Republicans. One bundler estimated that the “vast majority” of Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush in a competitive nomination fight.

“He’s the most desired candidate out there,” said another bundler, Brian Ballard, who sat on the national finance committees for Romney in 2012 and John McCain in 2008. “Everybody that I know is excited about it.”

And then there’s this story, from just yesterday. As reported over at The Washington Examiner on April 23. The headline?

Tea Party claims first victory of 2014

Tea Party candidate Curt Clawson won the Republican primary in the special election seat to replace Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla., who resigned after pleading guilty for cocaine possession, a victory that the Tea Party Express is claiming as “the movement's first victory of 2014.”

Texas and Bundy's Stance Against Fed and The GOPe Crickets

How about a chirp? A peep? A tweet? Nothing? When did it become fashionable to avoid taking a stand on an issue? Are these not important enough? No campaign contributions for GOP DC lifers in it?

Can't side with the trampled people, no money in that. Can't side with those who grease Harry Reid's palms either, too many people votes at stake.

Is Texas the only place where a GOP AG (future Governor), current Governor, and Lt. Governor are willing to call tyrants tyrants? What's got your tongue RNC GOPe? Haven't figured a way to monetize it yet? Questions without answers, and a Fed without borders.

You stink.

FDA Giving E-Cig Manufacturers The Vapors

More bad news for small business coming from the non elected, Federal alphabet soup of regulatory agencies. I can understand the push to not allow for the sale of e-cigs to minors, OK that would take one sentence. I can also somewhat understand the push for a warning that it may cause nicotine addiction (not proven, but possible), OK that's two sentences.

BREAKING: FCC's Internet Tollbooth: How Much Freedom Can You Afford?

The FCC seems to be changing it's name to "The Ministry of Truth". At least that how it's beginning to look. They are set to make some new rules regarding use of the internet. "There are reports that the FCC is gutting the Open Internet rule. They are flat out wrong. Tomorrow we will circulate to the Commission a new Open Internet proposal that will restore the concepts of net neutrality consistent with the court's ruling in January. There is no 'turnaround in policy.' The same rules will apply to all Internet content. As with the original Open Internet rules, and consistent with the court's decision, behavior that harms consumers or competition will not be permitted." I guess the Ministry of Truth decides which is what there. (Source Headline: The FCC Will Lay Out New Rules That Could Destroy Net Neutrality-by KARYNE LEVY)

Tom Steyer is NOT The Koch Brothers. No He is Not: UPDATED

Tom Steyer is most certainly not the Koch Brothers. Steyer's hedge fund is tied to a $67 million ponzi scheme that siphoned millions of dollars from foreign investors.

Steyer has also promised to spend $100 million to get democrats elected in 2014.

Meanwhile, the "evil" Koch Brothers donate billions of dollars to many deserving causes but generally give to conservative ones, you know, like all the money they give to M.D. Anderson for cancer research. How conservative is that? I guess they'd like to help conserve lives. How about that they "underwrite research and teaching at Brown, Mount Holyoke, Sarah Lawrence, University of Wisconsin at Madison, Vassar, and some 245 other colleges"? Is that conservative?
