'It Ain't Over 'til It's Over': What to Do Now
American Thinker ^ | 11/10/12 | Paul Murphy

Posted on 11/10/2012 7:20:25 AM PST by Sioux-san

....In the short term, the GOP must fight the count. Romney should never have conceded, and he must now find a reason to "unconcede." It's alarming advice to give the GOP, but in this the party must behave as the Democrats do. Try to imagine, for example, how the Obama campaign would have reacted if the numbers in Florida were reversed; if Scot Brown seemed guilty of practicing law without a license and won anyway; if a half-dozen major precincts responsible for electing Republicans claimed turnouts of 99% or more; if the Romney campaign had rather obviously both solicited and accepted foreign money.

I know we'd all like to be better than that -- but we're not going to save Democratic voters from their leaders without breaking through the social and political barriers that leadership have put in place to protect their positions. Ask your neighbors, your family members, anyone who votes Democrat but isn't fanatical about it: do they want $8 gas? Thirty million unemployed Americans? Dysfunction in health care and the military? ... more than half of all Americans are abandoned to people who treat a lie as just another tool, who have no shame and no loyalties beyond themselves.

So we have to do it -- and we start by denying Obama any aura of legitimacy. We fight the count, we impeach on Libya, we go after him personally and in every possible way.

In the middle-term, the GOP should turn to its financial backers -- and those backers should move to take over major media players.... Gannet, Time Warner, and McClatchy are all horrifically unbalanced but great properties nevertheless. Republicans should buy these -- and run them as real news and entertainment businesses, not as propaganda outlets...

A very good manifesto - we just can't let any of the current crop of Establishment Republicans have anything to do with this - they are clearly on the side of this country's Enemies. This includes Big Mouths Hannity and O'Reilly - they are not anything but the propagandists of the Establishment.

Republicans try to play nice, but as the old adage so aptly puts it — nice guys finish last.

This post is written in anger and frustration.

Angry that we continue to follow the Republican Party’s elite ignorance. A party that continues to pull defeat from the jaws of victory characterized by pompous fools who fulfill the sterotype built by the left.

Frustrated that the reality of politics is this: There will be no third party capable of competing with the coalition constructed by the dems. As a result, true conservatives MUST take steps to irradicate the ignorance of the Republican Party while still adhering to the core values of our forefathers (beliefs that I discovered are considered extreme by over half of my countrymen last night, BTW).

I have no solve for exactly how to accomplish this. Only advice based on a long military career in several foreign lands for how to defeat the dems once this is accomplished.

This thought process is based on the concept of irregular warfare with twists thrown in here and there for good measure.

With that, I provide the following advice for the good of the order.

LEADERSHIP: The old crew has proven either incompotent or outdated. McConnell and Boerner must go. They represent a failed plan to defend and resist without clearly explaining their position. They are content with looking like the bad guys and face public scorn when they don’t realize how important it is to manipulate a clearly left leaning MSM. They represent the failure of the last four years to our own and obstructionists to the opposition. We’ve got to show a new face to the nation. That is the genesis of rebuilding this movement. Ryan or Cantor in the House, Rubio or Demint in the Senate.

We also need a standard bearer and I see no one on the horizon with as much rockstar potential and substance as Rubio. These next four years must put him on the center stage with a unified and consolidated message. It also needs to protect him from the attacks from the left that are guaranteed to come.

Everything the Obamites used to deny, deflect, and difuse will be used againstt hem....including the race card. THAT is what will make Rubio a teflon candidate.

These men represent a change in a party that has been beaten soundly in the last two elections by a charlatan and his traveling circus. A fresh choice in leadership represents change you can TRULY beleive in from every angle. It marks a clear start from inside and outside when we actually started taking this enemy seriously.

GROUND GAME: It is IMPERATIVE to develop and foster an intricate ground game. It requires a MICRO-ANALYSIS of every county, every city, and every early and absentee ballot by demographic to find how how, why, and with what method they voted. The dems have built quite the coalition but it’s a house of cards; it’s a fractured coalition of single issue voters held together by a media-invested hollyweird worshipping demagogue. They can be piecemealed away bitby bit without sacrficing principle.

Give it to the dems on their “community organizing” machine. We don’t need to reinvent that model. We MUST develop our own. One that will INSTILL our principles in a language tailored to the audience. They’ve tailored theirs on the community organizer, we can create ours around the military special operator. This the winning of hearts and minds in our own third world backyard dem strongholds.

This isn’t as difficult as it sounds. It requires a patient and immediate effort that starts with the post election analysis looking not for what we WANT to find, but for the GROUND TRUTH. GROUND TRUTH is REAL INTELLIGENCE not Rovian number-crunching wishful thinking.

It will require an insurgent effort at the ground level. An infiltration into dem areas that we identify are weak or vulnerable to start cutting in to the blue.

The COIN (insurgeny/counterinsurgency)effort would include the identification of these areas, the inflitration of the areas through churches and charitable organizations AND PARTICULARLY THROUGH EDUCATION.

There ARE like thinkers in these communities. How do we find them? Ask Jesse L. Peterson. Ask JC WAtts and Herman Cain. They KNOW how to splinter these vulnerable areas off the blue.

The hispanic issue is RIPE for moving into the red. Catholic, family oriented cultures who beleive in being left alone and naturally distrust the government. And they voted Obama? This is the epitome of the single issue voter. the RNC needs to go toe to toe, issue to issue with “the Race” and counter it in that community, in that language, at THAT LEVEL.

Think it can’t be done? SOF has been doing it since the end of World War II. It CAN be done.

WE must get deep into the education system to promote the ideals and values of conservatism that should be selling themselves. I’m not talking about traditional public schools and universities. They are ROTTED with liberals. They also aren’tthe keys to education in the 21st century.

I’m talking about the new way to educate - the online universities, the trade schools and nightschools. Corporate allies need to invest and educate with the ideals of economic and fiscal conservatism.

The RNC needs to lead and develop this effort. A novice like me can see that there is a disconnect between the voting habits of catholic-dominated hispanics and pockets of baptist blacks and their actual stated values. That disconnect can be exploited if it is done slowly, deliberately, and effectively.

INFORMATION WARFARE: We are ATROCIOUS AT THIS. Dems get a simple message out early and often. They poison the well and we are left to change minds rather than get the initial impression right from jump. We constantly play defense and think we are sooooo clever when dems (as they ALWAYS do) do something stupid or illegal and shocked when the media all but ignores it. We must take the offensive in getting up in every Candy Crowley, every George Stepenopolis’ face and call them what they are: democratic hacks posing as the “objective media”

We ABSOLUTELY MUST be proactive. We must attack at EVERY OPPORTUNITY then add each fail of the dems to a trend and theme. These themes must be simple, tailored, and repetitively broadcast to each target demographic.

We must look out beyond the 5 and 10 meter targets. We’ve got to effectively interpret what the dem message is on the horizon and confront it at all levels - from the national MSM level filtering directly down to the target group level. Even I can see what the talking points of the upcoming week are by watching the Sunday talking head programs. Defense is unacceptable. we can’t pretent that the most outrageous comment won’t gain traction then act surprised when weeks later, that theme picks up steam. Attack, attack, attack.

Alinsky tactics must be turned against their masters. There is GREAT power in ridicule and scorn. They make it too easy to use. It needs to be culturally tailored and consistent. Dennis Miller needs his own show on FNC AND a late night show on Fox. Let him source and promote culturally diverse conserative comedians that vulnerable areas can relate to and remember. Bold Fresh tours aren’t enough.

This is only part of an overall information operation plan that is constant in a simple party message and what it means to each target group.

WE DON’T DO THAT WELL. WHY NOT? I find it unbelievable that Obama has hijacked the reputation and imagery of the Party of Lincoln.

COIN operations involve a very in depth understanding of cultural idocyncracies and how best to exploit them to our advantage. It’s not a “wool-over-the-eyes” approach or a “free shit” approach like the dems sell. THAT ALWAYS COMES UP SHORT.

It’s a sell based on how it effects each target group and what it means to them. If it’s done right, I am CONFIDENT that the tenets of conservatism sell themselves.

In Civil Miltary Operations, assistance in areas that seem unrelated builds trust in the agency. Granted, there’s a fine line between assistance and the giving of free shit but, the special operations forces walk that line well. It can be done. Community outreach in areas that we identify, in ways that we haven’t before can build a larger tent without sacrificing our beliefs.

The military has been doing this in third world countries for years. We’ve been more successful in some areas, less successful in others. In the United States third world strongholds of the Democratic Party,I am confident that it can be done.

This is, by far, not the only avenue we’ve got to pursue in order to turn the tide.

But, if we are going to war, the RNC must look to the military to rediscover and reorganize. The number-crunching beancounters have their place in the organization but, on their best days, they can only identify who will and won’t vote Republican.

This is a “Hearts and Minds” effort.

It requires a new way to think about the political battlefield.

Rangers Lead the Way.

All good advice, but let’s face it - the modern Republican Party has no will to win. This is has been demonstrated in the last two presidential races. The party selecting a candidate on their idea of “win-ability” rather than someone that will stand up and say what the base is thinking and fight for what the base wants. I was shocked that Tuesday’s counts were not challenged given the amount of corruption reported, but at the same time not surprised. The GOP does not need to “enlarge it’s tent” - it needs to take a stand and stand by it’s candidates.
Sometimes I think the GOP finds it easier to play the loser and shout what we would’ve done than to actually win and be the party responsible for saving the Republic.
Hey GOP - here’s a news flash for you: If you’re not gonna swing you shouldn’t get in the ring.

also- We need to make statements. All over the place. Like when someone is on a talk show with a democrat, look over at them and say.. “Suprised to see you here I thought you would be out trying to figure out how to kill more babies”.

The GOP isn’t going to do anything.

One thing I have to give the democrats...politically they will cut your throat from ear to ear, and then when you are on the ground begging, they will tie you up by the feet so that you drain faster. They are ruthless.

Meanwhile the GOP is passive, submissive, useless, pointless, and stupid beyond comprehension.

We are in a war for our survival and until we treat it as such, we are doomed.

Personally I think Pat Cadell ought to start the party that will replace the stupid party. That man knows what time it is.

“the party must behave as the Democrats do”

They should but they will not now nor will they ever. Its like trying to get a Leopard to change its spots. The GOP is not the answer to the ills of the USA political system.

IMO the only way that things could change politically is to form a third party that would eclipse the GOP and take it over. I don’t see that happening.

We are beyond the ballot box in this country and we will all sadly find out in the coming months as we see the GOP fall in line and cave in to every demand the Kenyan makes from raising the debt ceiling to taxes, Obamacare etc.

If we get the country back it will have to be through another avenue. Maybe the financial collapse that is coming will wake people up.

The Republican Party needs to stick to Conservative principles and Conservative candidates.

If we begin to chase power and control at the price of our values, we are lost as a country and the Constitutional Republic has failed.

All these articles about not despairing and what to do next are just silly. There is nothing to do next except hunker down. The electorate is mostly morons. The country is lost.

I have visited this site virtually every day, several times a day since the last millennium. Spent thousands of hours reading and discussing issues. Now, it’s hard to see any more reason for it.

I would dearly love to be wrong, but I haven’t seen any facts or arguments that give any hope. All this crap about Romney being a lousy candidate is just that. Does anybody think Gingrich or Palin would have done better? BS!

Demographics is what is killing this country. Millions of people pouring in from the third world, with their third world thinking and their gimme, gimme attitudes. And it’s only going to get worse. Last Tuesday was the last chance to stop it.

...if Scot Brown seemed guilty of practicing law without a license and won anyway...


It was Republican Senator Scott Brown’s Democrat opponent, the radical socialist Elizabeth Warren, who both won (with the aid of a massive Dim machine financed from our-of-state and abroad) and practiced law without a license!!!! She also is a fake Indian.

Now we have to endure years of Warren’s lecturing at us, wagging her finger, as she pushes high taxes, wealth redistribution, and her other favorite ideas. Then in 2016, she will run for President. PHOOEY!!!!

Very true.

Part of the reason is that 90% of the news media has the democrats back. They can do anything they want, whenever they want and the media will protect them. All the while demonizing republicans for trying to do the right thing.

Barack Obama voter fraud 2012

Friday, November 9, 2012 - 22 Updates Posted Today and People You Can Contact! See FRIDAY UPDATES! *

Is this what Barack Obama calls a “ground game?” All things considered, on this page and elsewhere, Mitt Romney IS our President elect. Let’s do something about it!

I’ll be adding additional links on a regular basis and forwarding all of this information to Mitt’s campaign! Please send other links.

Another Stolen Election? Election data HIGHLY suspicious AND the George Soros’ “Secretary of State Project”

Yes, this is the same George Soros who owns part of the company in Spain Obama outsourced parts of the election to and who has been banned from Hungary because he tampered with elections there.

We will continue to add updates! Please check back often!


From my friend Lynn Victory on Facebook:

“Thanks for what you are doing. My son is friends with a guy in the Romney campaign who has actually been on since 2008. He is not high up, but said that the O campaign bought high tech equipment to target county by county where the votes were needed in battle-ground states, so that they could “bus in the needed votes”. The guy would not say fraud, but that is fraud.”

Also this referral from Lynn:

“But…these Obama boys…they took it to a whole other level. Votes, donations…deals…it’s a lot more Putin than it is Clinton. Pay to play…Big Labor…this country never seen it at this level.”

Voter Fraud: Obama Won 108% of Registered Voters in Wood County, Ohio

Video: Diebold Whistleblower Speaks Out on Voter Fraud

BREAKING: St. Lucie County, Florida Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County

Between St. Lucie and Broward Counties, we have a pretty good idea what happened in Florida. Normal voting is what, 50% turnout? It doesn’t take many counties like this to affect an entire state by multiple percentage points.

All of these numbers between 99% (Pennsylvania) and 141.1% (Florida) turnout in dozens of counties in swing states makes me think Team Obama was panicking a lot just before the election, with Mitt up by 7% in certain early voting polls. They overcompensated so much the fraud is impossible to hide. I think they know it, which may be one reason Axelrod is stepping down. (Sound familiar Petraeus and Benghazi?)

As I told someone earlier today, this is who Obama is. This is who Chicago (the machine) is. Do we really want this to be who America is? Is this how we will define our elections from 2008 on? As Mitt says, “America can do better.” We must do better. We can’t let the message be out there that America will let this fraud go.

Want to do something about all of this? Tiffany Banks and Darin Southam forwarded me a list of people you can contact who are in the November 9, 2012 3:12 PM comment below.

Did you know voters can request a recount in certain states? (Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin!) Take a look at the comment by @RightonMainSt dated November 9, 2012 11:45 PM below for instructions! Mitt will have to ask in Colorado himself. (Yes, you Mitt!)

It has also been suggested that we ask Republican Secretaries of State NOT to certify the election until all questions about voter fraud are abated. Some people think this may provoke a crisis, but it can’t be worse than the one we are looking at for the next four years and the impact on generations to come! America NEEDS Mitt, and Mitt won fair and square. This was not a ballot stuffing competition but an election. Let’s make sure it’s counted that way!

Thank you all. Over 7,500 people have visited this page in the first 24 hours and I hope millions will see it eventually. Please pass it on! We can do this! (Yes we can!)

Agree with your every point, especially that “we are beyond the ballot box”. Time for mass actions now.

Also believe your prediction about financial collapse is accurate. Noted investor Jim Rogers is already warning about serious economic problems on the horizon. And recently, the pace of layoffs is accelerating.

The RNC needs to stand up and raise hell about the cheating, and recount everything based upon the evidence we have. The RNC should be on the 99-108-134-140% turnout numbers in some wards in swing states like Ducks on June Bugs!

Depressing, but a very realistic summation of our condition. We have effectively been invaded.
