  • Fairfax County VA Republican Committee Betrays Trump

    10/09/2016 5:43:03 PM PDT · by ResistanceMedia · 35 replies ^ | October 9, 2016
    On Friday, the official Twitter account of the Fairfax Republican Party retweeted a post by Northern Virginia Republican politician Barbara Comstock (a RINO with a D rating from NumbersUSA, a group that supports a pro-America immigration policy, and an F rating from Conservative Review) that called for nominee Donald Trump to "step aside and allow our party to replace him" and that "I cannot in good conscience vote for Donald Trump." While it is not clear, it appears that this tweet referenced the release of an 11-year-old illegal secret recording showing Trump using explicit language. While Trump's behavior was inappropriate,...

    The State Department painted it as an elegant way out of a ballooning crisis involving Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng — but by day’s end, it looked like a disgraceful performance by US diplomats. Initial reports had Chen so pleased by the deal that he told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “I want to kiss you.” The agreement Clinton negotiated with Beijing yesterday supposedly allowed Cheng to stay in China and get medical attention, with the authorities guaranteeing his future safety. But things started unraveling just hours after the compromise was inked. First, while State claims Chen never wanted to leave...

    No good deed goes unpunished; this must be what US Ambassador to China Gary Locke must have been thinking as a firestorm of criticism erupted over his embassy’s handling of the Chen Guangcheng case. Under great pressure, with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner arriving for high profile talks with China’s leadership, the embassy and colleagues in the State Department including Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian Affairs Kurt Campbell had negotiated a delicate deal with Chinese counterparts that Chen accepted. Negotiated with the involvement of top legal scholar Jerome Cohen, and based on a...

    Communication between the Holy See and the People’s Republic of China “continues with a spirit of goodwill on both parts” and aims to seek “realistic solutions for the good of everyone”. Watertight confirmation of the important step in the dialogue between Beijing and the Holy See is given by His Holiness’s Secretary of the State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, himself. In a wide-spanning interview with Stefania Falasca of Italian Catholic newspaper Avvenire, the cardinal from Vicenza who is head of Vatican diplomacy, outlines the criteria and objectives of the Holy See in its present relations with representatives of the Chinese government....

    Newt Gingrich spoke with Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren live from Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena on Day One of the RNC convention Monday night. At the beginning of their conversation, they addressed the controversy around who is and who isn’t present at the convention as the Republican Party gets ready to crown Donald Trump their 2016 nominee. At least one speaker, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), has yet to endorse the GOP nominee. Susteren asked Gingrich if he believed Trump’s former presidential opponent would finally announce his support for Trump during his speech Wednesday night. “Well I hope he does” endorse...

    A former CIA counterterrorism officer who is set to be extradited to Italy where she faces a four-year prison sentence in connection with the rendition of a suspected terrorist that took place in Milan in 2003 said Hillary Clinton is partially to blame for her ordeal. Sabrina De Sousa, two-dozen other CIA officers, and an Air Force colonel were convicted in absentia in 2009 in Italy on kidnapping and other charges in connection with the abduction of Osama Mustapha Hassan Nasr, better known as Abu Omar, a radical Egyptian cleric whose fiery anti-American speeches in the immediate aftermath of 9/11...

    "He's not our nominee yet," Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said pointedly when asked about Trump and the current Supreme Court vacancy. Trump has won a majority of GOP delegates and remains the only Republican candidate in the presidential field. But he repeatedly accused Gonzalo Curiel, a federal judge overseeing a fraud lawsuit against Trump University, of being biased because "he's a Mexican." That has outraged and alarmed GOP lawmakers on a day when the primaries are winding down — a point in the race in which a party would typically be unifying against the Democratic nominee.

After last night’s vote to codify Obama’s extra-constitutional “guidance” mandating that men must be allowed into the showers, dressing rooms and public toilets used by women, the answer would have to be "NO," there’s no issue left upon which Ryan and his servile underlings have not betrayed America’s conservative majority.  About now someone is going to say “hold it” you’re being unfair, because Paul Ryan didn’t vote for the amendment from Democratic Rep.

The New York Republican State Committee approved the rules change last year, marking the first time in decades that GOP presidential candidates won't be allowed to select their own delegates from the Empire State. Instead, the state party will decide. The new process rewards longtime party loyalists in the state - taking power away from the presidential candidates and their most fervent supporters in...

    What a difference a year makes in Syria. And the introduction of massive Russian airpower. Last February, President Bashar al-Assad’s regime and its Shiite auxiliaries mounted a large-scale attempt to encircle Aleppo, the northern city divided between regime and rebels since 2012 and battered by the dictator’s barrel bombs. Islamist and non-Islamist mainstream rebels — to the surprise of those who have derided their performance, let alone their existence — repelled the offensive at the time. What followed was a string of rebel advances across the country, which weakened Assad so much that they triggered Moscow’s direct intervention in September,...

That bigger controversy is the Spanish version of the GOP State of the Union rebuttal containing an "amnesty pledge". As this is written, Governor Nikki Haley is trying to get out ahead of the building expose'. Haley just gave a DC press conference claiming she does not support "amnesty"; however, against her earlier admission of Speaker Ryan and Leader McConnell approving the script - the...

    American Betrayal: A Christmas story? Not really. However, it is the striking case that most of the main action of the book takes place within a span of years notably bookended (see below) by two Christmases: Christmas, 1919, when Lenin ordered the Chekists, his pre-KGB secret police, to shoot anyone failing to show up for work in observance of St. Nicholas' Day, and Christmas 1991, the day the USSR officially dissolved. The book attempts to unmask some mass of the colossal deception and fakery that have taken shape in between those two Christmas seasons as consensus-history, the nearly completely false...

    Marco Rubio says that if there is a terrorist attack in America, it will be because of people who voted against NSA surveillance, and he has previously criticized Ted Cruz for voting against it.  So he seems to be saying that future terrorist attacks will be on Ted Cruz's head.  Additionally, one of his super-PACs is running an ad saying that Cruz voted to weaken our ability to fight terrorists. What exactly did Cruz vote for?  Cruz voted for a bill that stops the NSA from collecting all phone records from all Americans.  There is no reason for the government...

    A former chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party says Donald Trump should not be on the Republican presidential primary ballot on Feb. 9 because the GOP frontrunner has not proven he is a registered Republican and has expressed views “inconsistent” with the state and national party’s platform and by laws. In his usual, understated fashion, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski responded by saying that if this move were approved, “Mr. Trump’s supporters would probably riot in the streets of New Hampshire.” Normally I’d shrug off a comment like that as typical campaign rhetoric, but in this case it’s probably...

    Republican donors with links to several presidential candidates - as well as a prominent GOP operative - are pooling their resources in a new effort to go after Donald Trump and keep the party's presidential front-runner from winning the nomination. The most recent bid is a reported "guerrilla campaign" led by a group called Trump Card LLC and run by Liz Mair, former communications official for the Republican National Committee. The group's goal, according to The Wall Street Journal, is to collect money from anonymous donors to "defeat and destroy" Trump, who has essentially led the GOP presidential field since...

    The latest poll results from Rasmussen weren't cheered by the GOP establishment, which has been holding its breath for months, hoping that the frontrunner would fade and allow someone more willing to toe the establishment's line to come to the fore. The poll, taken last week, wasn't encouraging: 63 percent of Likely Republican Voters think Donald Trump will be the Republican Party's nominee for president (up from 59 percent the week before), while 51 percent of all likely voters agree. Trump's claim that President Obama's decision to allow 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States next year is the "ultimate...

    The U.S. death rate has been falling for decades, but researchers have detected one group in which the rates have been steadily ticking up - middle-aged white people. Suicides and deaths from drug overdose and alcohol abuse are being blamed. Deaths rates for other races have continued to fall, as they have for whites 65 and older. But death rates for whites 35 to 44 have been level recently, they’re beginning to turn up for whites 55 to 64, and - most strikingly - death rates for whites ages 45 to 54 have risen by half a percent per year...

    Tom Tancredo has long been a Conservative stalwart, with a lifetime rate of 99% per the American Conservative Union for his 10 years in office. He writes over at Breitbart that he is leaving the GOP In a panel discussion at the University of Colorado after the recent Republican debate, I was asked by a student why she should be a Republican. The question forced me to ask myself the same thing.I gave the young woman the standard talking points–that Republicans believe in smaller government, individual rights, fiscal responsibility, and free enterprise. But as I drove home, her question–and my...

    After this weeks House GOP budget deal, which betrays nearly every promise made to grassroots conservatives since 2010, I have decided it is time to end my affiliation with the Republican Party. ...The Boehner budget deal is the last straw, and enough is enough. I cannot any longer defend this transparently dishonest charade called the Republican Party. ... I will begin working my tail off for the next twelve months to organize Independents to help elect Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as President of the United States.
