  • Video of GOP elites whining about Trump over martinis is the most pathetic thing youíll see all day

    Contemptuous We all know the GOP elites are horrified at the rise of Trump. They want you to believe their revulsion stems from outrage over issues but, if you dig a little, eventually you realize thatís only the surface of the story. They donít like Trump because they donít understand his success, canít control him, and donít know what heíll do if he manages to win. Heís a wild card and, as Iíve said before, thereís nothing your ďpolitical bettersĒ hate more than unpredictability. When things go off the pre-determined rails, these people have to actually pick sides, make decisions,...

    The Republican Establishment has lost the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 presidential elections, and a large part of the reason was on display over the weekend when a number of Establishment Republican candidates blasted frontrunner Donald Trump for raising awareness about one of the DC Media's biggest cover-ups: the legions of women who claim that both Bill and Hillary Clinton have abused them. What you are about to read below, is The Call of a Loser eager to reassure the DC Media and Hillary Clinton that they can be defeated in 2016 by Hillary's wildly hypocritical War...
  • House GOP Leadership: Foreign Worker Increase Needed Because of ‚ÄúLabor Shortage‚ÄĚ [Scoundrels!]

    House GOP Leadership: Foreign Worker Increase Needed Because of ‚ÄúLabor Shortage‚ÄĚ by MARK KRIKORIAN December 17, 2015 House GOP Whip Steve Scalise sent an e-mail to his members this morning defending the immigration increase that the Republican leadership had secretly slipped into the omnibus funding bill. (It is shown below.) The provision would potentially quadruple the issuance of H-2B worker visas, which are for non-agricultural seasonal jobs. The visas are used to import cheap labor for ski resorts, hotels, factories, landscapers, and others. (See this 2010 paper on this racket by a former State department visa officer.) Most of the...

    Clearly, from the vitriol pouring forth from the ruling class, Trump's not one of them. He's flying our flag, fighting our battles, and taking the enemy down. No, he's not one of them, he's one of us. Iím told that in supporting Donald Trump, Iím advocating for a civil war within the Republican party. Let me be clear, Iím not trying to start a civil war, Iím simply joining a revolution. Iím taking up arms (in my case a pen) for the conservative cause against the ruling class of Washington insiders, the UniParty (Democrats and Republicans), the media, and activist...

    ďI think itís a very bold choice. And an exciting and interesting pick. Itís going to elevate the campaign into a debate over big ideas. It means Romney-Ryan can run on principles and provide some real direction and vision for the Republican Party. And probably lose. Maybe big,Ē said former President George W. Bush senior adviser Mark McKinnon. Joked another: ďThe most popular phrase in Washington right now is: ĎI love Paul Ryan, but ÖíĒ And the more pessimistic strategists donít even feign good cheer: They think the Ryan pick is a disaster for the GOP. Many of these people...

    Despite making clear that I was not advocating a third party, but rather recognizing that one will spring up if the Republican leadership does not pay attention to the state of its own party, many not only assumed wrongly my advocacy, but resorted to the worn out argument of the Republican leaders over several generations ó we must fight the Democrats firstĒ or the variant ďthe top priority is beating Barack Obama.ĒThe problem with this argument is it never ends. How many more trillion dollars must we add to the national debt before the ďwait and focus on the other...

    Newt Gingrich took the stage at the Georgia Republican Party state convention on Saturday wearing a Mitt Romney sticker, focusing his attacks on President Barack Obama and attempting to energize the crowd around his former Republican rival. "To every conservative, everywhere in America: When your choice on the one hand is Barack Obama, and your choice on the other hand is Mitt Romney, no serious conservative could possibly believe that electing Barack Obama is acceptable ... for America."

    As newly elected Tea Party members arrive in the domain of the Political Elites in Washington, are they prepared to be "handled" so that the Old Guard retains power? Will they be thrown a bone now and then, here and there, to placate them or will they remember why they were elected and fight back?

    What you should do about it. Several Tea Party-favored candidates have had surprising success this primary season. Most of them have a very good chance of winning, in many cases against savvy, experienced incumbents with ties to major funding and media they can rely on for support. Overall, Republicans are poised to become a majority in the House and possibly even the Senate this November.There’s been a sea change in the country, much quicker and more substantial than liberty lovers might have expected as recently as a year ago. Yet for some of us, it’s hard to escape a nagging...

Photo: Nikkihaley.com SEE ALL 4 PHOTOS Best Opinion: Palmetto State Politics, Washington Monthly, Riehl World View Though she still holds a double-digit lead in the polls, Nikki Haley's bid for South Carolina's Republican governorship has grown increasingly fraught. Fresh accusations about her infidelity have emerged from political lobbyist Larry Marchant ó which, like the earlier claims, the Tea Party-endorsed Haley has denied ó and senior Republican senator Jake Dodds stirred up a racial storm yesterday by labeling the candidate, who is of Indian descent, a "raghead" on...
