    Howard Dean lumped white supremacists and the GOP together when he warned voters not to vote for racists. "If you want to vote for a racist in the White House, then you better vote for Republicans," the former governor of Vermont said on MSNBC on Saturday. Dean stated that Trump has "no moral character" but added that he is in the minority since "there’s a lot more decent Americans than there are the kind of people who were supporting the folks in Charlottesville." "Today in the 2018 elections, if you vote for a Republican, you’re supporting Donald Trump. This has...

    The Washington Times ^ | August 20, 2017 | Angelo M. Codevilla
    Having refused to repeal Obamacare, the Republican Party is dead, as was the Whig Party in 1854 after it colluded in the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act which opened these territories to slavery. Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress as well as control of legislatures and governorships in 26 states veil the fact that, in 2017, there are no longer reasons to vote Republican any more than there were to vote Whig after 1854. The Republican Party’s successes in recent electoral cycles were due to the American people’s desire not to be governed by a ruling class, headed by...

    Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) told Fox News on Thursday that his constituents want the GOP to rally behind President Donald Trump and move forward with his agenda, because that’s why they voted for the president. “This is about people like from my district, who swung 20 points for Donald Trump and helped him win Wisconsin. It’s people at my town hall who go, ‘listen, President Trump’s imperfect, and yeah, I see why people are frustrated with him, but in the end, the things he’s talking about - reducing regulation and the Trump agenda is what’s going to help my family...

    Updated 2:20 p.m. Aug. 18 with lieutenant governor calling for expulsion — Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Parson said Friday the state Senate should expel Maria Chappelle-Nadal due to her Facebook comment in which she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated. Parson and other top Missouri Republicans and Democrats, from Washington, D.C., to Jefferson City, already have called for Chapelle-Nadal to step down. The University City Democrat has so far resisted numerous bipartisan calls for her resignation after the comment was posted and later deleted Thursday. Parson went a step further Friday, saying that if she doesn't resign by the...

    RUSH: Now grab soundbite number four. I want you to listen to a montage we’ve put together of the media digging up a bunch of self-hating Republicans who have to get on this train that the Republican Party’s racist, it’s been racist, and the party had better do something fast. LAWRENCE WILKERSON: My Republican Party has racists all over it. Ever since Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” we’ve had that element to deal with. LARRY KUDLOW: William F. Buckley read the John Birchers out of the conservative movement. Everybody in the Republican Party and the conservative party has to do likewise with...

    Hate is hate, dead is dead. We should stop politicizing bigotry and violence by demonizing some demographics and giving others a veritable pass. The demonstration by white nationalist haters in Virginia last weekend resulted from the removal a statue of confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Confederate flag and statue controversies are raging throughout the South. Some view Confederate symbols as disgusting tributes to slave states defeated in the Civil War. Others warn against censoring symbols of a history we should never forget. On the margins are people who wish the South had won. The movement to eradicate confederate symbols began...

    Fort Worth Rep. Kay Granger on Wednesday lined up with President Donald Trump, condeming violence coming from “both sides” and raising concerns about a rush to remove Confederate monuments. Speaking with North Texas conservative radio host Mark Davis on Wednesday morning, Granger was asked whether in the wake of clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters last weekend in Charlottesville, violence perpetrated by left-of-center activists was being ignored. “[W]e need to recognize it and talk about it because it’s on both sides,” said Granger, who said people on both the left and right are guilty of escalating their political activism to...

    RUSH: Themes to today’s program, the media is dividing this country and tearing it apart and because of fear of the media way too many on our side are unwilling to stop or even try to explain or oppose this. Identity politics, which we have been focusing on in recent weeks, intensely in recent days, is the primary weapon being used to divide the country. Nothing new about it, but it is reaching new heights. And what is going on is so far from reality that it’s tough to actually make sense of it. mean, here’s one way of looking...

    Senator Bob Corker, unleashing one of the most pointed attacks from a Republican official on President Donald Trump, said on Thursday the president had not yet shown the "stability and competence" the United States needs, nor an understanding of the nation's character. "The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence, that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful," Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations, told reporters after an event in Tennessee.

    The congressional calendar is jammed. There are serious doubts that there's room for all the legislation that's lined up waiting for a vote. ... There are just 12 days before the end of September, when the House and Senate are in session together. In those 12 days, Congress has to pass a budget and a debt ceiling extension. That's surely very difficult. Now throw in the Republican Party walking away from the Republican president. That is what's happening. And the chances of getting a budget, debt ceiling, health care, tax cuts and infrastructure done this year are surely slim and...

    It is a sad truth of our current societal situation that those on the left wing of the political spectrum no longer possess the ability to argue political issues based on anything resembling facts or logic. I used to say that they no longer desire to do so, but it has become abundantly clear over the last decade that progressives simply no longer have the ability. The left abandoned any effort to really debate issues at the outset of the Bill Clinton presidency, as the Clintons brought their Saul Alinsky rules for radicals tactics to the White House. Those rules...

    Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein says “important Republicans” are saying privately that President Trump is “unfit” for office and urged reporters to look into how widespread those worries may be. Bernstein took to Twitter on Tuesday to make the claims, but did not identify any specific individuals who have called Trump unfit. He said reporters should look into how “pervasive such talk may be.” (TWEETS-AT-LINK) The famous Watergate reporter’s tweets come as Trump is under fire for his response to the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., at a white supremacist rally over the weekend. Trump initially blamed the violence on “many...
  • Hearts and minds changing, not the political process, is the answer to racial divisions

    08/13/2017 11:22:08 AM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 26 replies
    If hearts don't change then nothing changes. Many in Washington D.C. tend to think foolishly that they are the seat of power in this country and therefore their on will and/or legislation acts will exact change. They can be no more wrong. The political process ultimately is not the answer to racial strife and division in this country. In fact, it's politics that often exasperates and encourages division because it's much easier to divide and conquer different groups and win them to ones side in politics than seeking harmony. Everybody has agendas, from Dems to Republicans to the media to...

    A man described by neighbors as “quarrelsome” and who placed large anti-Trump signs in his yard is in police custody for the murder of his next-door neighbor – a GOP committeeman. Police in West Goshen Township, PA, charged Clayton Carter, 51, in the shooting death of his next-door neighbor, G. Brooks Jennings in the early morning hours on Tuesday, according to ABC Philadelphia. The conflict began on Monday evening when police officers responded to a dispute between Carter and Jennings that involved cursing and video recording in one of their backyards. Police de-escalated the conflict around 8 p.m. and left....

    National Review ^ | August 10, 2017 | Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry
    To say that Donald Trump is a kind of American version of Jean-Marie and Marine Le Pen, the French populist leaders, has become a bit of a cliché. What is more interesting is what it means for where America is headed. But first, let us rehearse the case for Trump being the American Le Pen. We can check off the list. There is the rhetoric: the over-the-top nationalism (Trump calls for “America First,” Marine Le Pen’s consigliere wants to rebrand her National Front party as “The Patriots”), the xenophobia, as distinguished from sensible immigration restrictionism, complete with not-so-naked ethnic appeals...
