  • Purists Kill Whatever They Believe In

    03/28/2017 4:43:54 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 61 replies ^ | March 28, 2017 | Dennis Prager
    According to The New York Times, 10 moderates, 15 conservatives, and eight other Republicans would have voted against the Republican repeal and replace Obamacare bill. So, then, 15 or so conservatives made it impossible to pass the bill favored by nearly every other Republican and by President Donald Trump. If that is the case, what we have here is another conservative example of purism and principle damaging another major opportunity to do good. The first purist conservative example were the Never-Trumpers, who believed it was better for Hillary Clinton to be elected president and for the Left to have four...
  • The Conservative Case For Normalizing Relations With Cuba

    The Federalist ^ | 12/18/2014 | Tom Nichols
    Okay, everyone. Calm down. There are a lot of reasons to be worried about the president’s decision to normalize relations with Cuba. Not least among them is that this is the least-adept foreign policy team in post-Cold War history (yes, I include the Carter and Bush 43 White Houses in that evaluation), and after six years of being taken to the cleaners by bad regimes, it feels like it’s happening again. It also looks too much like a quid pro quo for the release of an imprisoned American. And it’s being rationalized by the president himself in terms that show...
  • Peter King: Current NSA surveillance programs might have prevented 9/11

    Hotair ^ | 06/20/2013 | Ed Morrissey
    At the very least, Rep. Peter King tells CNN’s Jake Tapper, it would have added to the “mosaic” that could have exposed the threat before the 9/11 attack that killed nearly 3,000 Americans. But was the mosaic missing too many holes because the NSA didn’t trawl telecom metadata, or because of the barriers between law enforcement and intelligence communities? (via The Corner)CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Reiterating an opinion expressed during his questioning of General Keith Alexander, the Long Island Republican told CNN’s Jake Tapper that the programs “would’ve added an extra piece of the mosaic.” He also disputed...
  • Karl Rove has declared war* on the Tea Party Movement. Our response? BRING IT!

    Establishment Republicans like Karl Rove has diluted what is supposed to be the conservative principles and message of the Republican Party. In a misguided attempt to 'appeal to moderates', Rove and his ilk have alienated conservatives within the Republican Party and sent the Democrats a clear message. They have no spine. Rove has some nerve attacking a movement that infused the right with such enthusiasm that it gave the Republican Party its biggest gains in 2010. If he wants to point the finger of blame at anyone, he needs only look in the mirror for it was Rove that was...
  • Ann Coulter not on board Donald Trump's birther crusade

    The Daily Caller ^ | April 12, 2011 | Jeff Poor
    Some conservative commentators have applauded Donald Trump for challenging President Barack Obama on his birth certificate. Conservative author Ann Coulter isn’t one of them. On Monday night’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, Coulter said the “birther” conspiracy has been long debunked by other conservative outlets. “Well, I think maybe I’ve been watching too much Charlie Sheen because Donald Trump seems perfectly sane to me,” Coulter said. “I don’t know where he gets this $2 million Obama has spent to keep his birth certificate — he posted his birth certificate on his web page. I am glad that Donald Trump...

  • Michael Savage's misleading headline on Rush's Rams deal.

    "Rush and Soros partners in Rams deal! And you still believe him?" Michael Savage lies with his headline on Rush's Rams deal by inaccurately connecting Soros and Limbaugh. In the article it states, "Limbaugh said he learned Wednesday about the Reuters report that billionaire liberal Soros may have been a member of Checketts' group," while Savage makes up that Rush worked with Soros.

  • Jürgen Todenhöfer-Germany's celebrated Jihad-lover (this passes as "conservative" in Germany)

    various | June 08, 2008 | Myself
    Alright FReepers, this is my first quasi-vanity, in the sense that I don't post an article by another source, but wrote myself on Dr. Todenhöfer, a shining example of elitist, academic and political Dhimmitude and Anti-Americanism in Germany. If you think the American MSM is biased, if not downright sympathetic towards the Jihadi enemy, and if you think that Michael Moore is a propagandist slob, you haven't met Jürgen Todenhöfer. Sure the German media outlets, such as the "Spiegel" and "Stern" have an infamous history of BDS and anti-Americanism, but Dr. Todenhöfer trumps that. Dr. Jürgen Todenhöfer (67) is an...

    One nation under Giuliani JASON SPENCER, Staff Writer Published February 20, 2007 Despite a resume that includes tackling organized crime as a U.S. attorney and reforming welfare in the Big Apple, Rudy Giuliani might always be remembered for his response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. To many people, he was a symbol of New York’s — and America’s — resilience in the face of its most devastating attack on domestic soil. But is that enough to make a president? National polls suggest so, with the first major GOP primaries still a year away. Yet Giuliani’s critics — including fellow...

    Creator's Syndicate via Yahoo ^ | 02/09/07 | Mona Charen
    [snip] Giuliani transformed a city whose budget and workforce were larger than those of all but five or six states. He and police chief William Bratton famously cracked down first on quality of life crimes like panhandling and public urination. Teenagers who leaped over the turnstiles at subway entrances were arrested — a departure from the practice under Mayor David Dinkins. Giuliani later quipped that the police under his predecessor had become "highly skilled observers of crime." Those turnstile jumpers turned out to possess a huge number of illegal guns, which were confiscated, and criminals throughout the city discovered that...

    CFP ^ | May 23, 2005 | Alan Caruba
    An interview with Pat Buchanan in the May 17 edition of The Washington Times has evoked a lot of discussion on the various message boards that self-identified conservatives visit. "The conservative movement has passed into history," said the three-time presidential candidate, commentator, and magazine publisher. He’s right. As a movement, a unifying force, the conservatism that mobilized people to vote in sufficient numbers to give control of Congress to Republicans in 1994 and, with the exception of eight years with Bill Clinton in office, has put Republicans in the White House has lost its momentum. Since then, the Democrat Party...

    The Plain Dealer ^ | August 14, 2005 | Stephen Koff
    Washington- Don't blame President Bush's trade ambassador. Yes, he urged Rep. Steve LaTourette to support the controversial Central American Free Trade Agreement. And LaTourette in the end did, voting with colleagues in the middle of the night and surprising scores of people who had believed him when he said he intended to vote no. But U.S. Trade Representative Rob Portman apparently is touchy about how people see his role in a matter that has blown up in LaTourette's face. And as the week ended, he let people know it. A Plain Dealer examination last week showed that the Lake County...

    A lifetime ago, when William Jefferson was just a plain old congressman, not the central figure in what's shaping up as a major investigation of his business dealings, I sat down to talk to him about one of his pet subjects, international trade. Jefferson kicked it off by asking whether I was familiar with the Central American Free Trade Agreement. Having skimmed a stack of newspaper clippings on the subject, I told him, with utter confidence, that I was. Big mistake. Before long he was off on a treatise about trade deals past, with a particular focus on provisions to...

    Washington Post ^ | 8-16-05 | Mike Allen and Dana Milbank
    Democrats have decided that unless there is an unexpected development in the weeks ahead, they will not launch a major fight to block the Supreme Court nomination of John G. Roberts Jr., according to legislators, Senate aides and party strategists. In a series of interviews in recent days, more than a dozen Democratic senators and aides who are intimately involved in deliberations about strategy said that they see no evidence that most Democratic senators are prepared to expend political capital in what is widely seen as a futile effort to derail the nomination.
