Why Bother Electing Republicans if they Won’t Be Republican?

WHY DOES THE REPUBLICAN PARTY EXIST? Who is it for? What principle does it serve? It’s hard to say.

The following article was written by Ben Domenech at the Federalist:

“Why does the Republican Party exist? What is its purpose as a political entity – to what end do its members work to elect their fellow Republicans? What are its priorities? Whose interests does it serve? Why is this political party still around so long after its primary motivations for creation – the defense of the Union and the end of slavery – were achieved? The Democratic Party exists to serve its clients – but the Republican Party’s justification is more ethereal. Is it just an arbitrary entity seeking a universal negative, designed to push back against Democratic policies and demand they be more something (efficient) or less something else (expensive)? Or does it have actual principles and priorities it seeks to make a reality?

The Republican Party’s voters and supporters certainly seem to have such beliefs. But they rarely seem to make it through the process of synthesis that turns such beliefs into actual policy priorities. Being a negative force is not nothing, and blocking bad policy is worthwhile. But when given the opportunity to put good policy into place, or to take steps to make such policy more feasible in the future, where is the Republican Party to be found?”……Do read on: http://thefederalist.com/2015/07/27/why-does-the-republican-party-exist/

Obama’s US to be Sued for Seizing “Waterlands”

States sue EPA over WOTUS

Glenn,

EPA is an agency out of control.

At EPA, ideology trumps the law and the facts.

CFACT has presented full coverage of EPA’s ill-conceived “WOTUS” rule that redefines “waters of the United States” to remove the qualification that they be “navigable,” and in effect brings most every occasionally damp ditch and puddle in the nation under EPA control.

Tens of thousands of our readers signed a petition telling EPA that this is both a mistake and far exceeds EPA’s mandate under the Clean Water Act. (Thank you!)

EPA turned a deaf ear to voices across the country and advanced its rule anyway.

Twenty-nine states have had enough.

They’ve filed lawsuits asking the federal judiciary to get EPA back under control.

As Ron Arnold reports at CFACT.org:

“Each state lawsuit asked a federal judge to declare the WOTUS rule illegal and issue an injunction to prevent the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers, co-administrator of the rule, from enforcing it. Each state also asked the judge to order both agencies to draft a new rule that complies with the law and honors state authority.”

Robert Heinlein warned of a future where “civil servant” is semantically equal to “civil master.”

That future has arrived.

We need to get our bureaucrats back under control if we want to ensure, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, that our government of, by, and for people, “shall not perish from the Earth.”

For nature and people too,

Craig Rucker

What the Left’s Trained Black Savages are Selling These Days

The Word According to the Obama Lefty brain ‘child’, Ta-Nehisi Coates

The following article, THE FIRE THIS TIME (4) was written by Scott Johnson at PowerLine:

“According to Ta-Nehisi Coates in Between the World and Me, his widely acclaimed new book, “The problem with the police is not that they are fascist pigs but that our country is ruled by majoritarian pigs.” Later he decries “the horror of our prison system” and “the long war against the black body[.]”

“Here is what I would like for you to know,” Coates confides to his son. “In America it is traditional to destroy the black body–it is heritage.” Suburbs are built on “human bones.” Jails are “angle[d” toward “a human stockyard.” Our democracy remains dependent on “cannibalism.”

Although Coates resurrects the hoary shibboleths of black beauty and black power, blacks appear in this book as little but victims. Black agency disappears. Coates conjures even black-on-black crime as nothing other than a construct and creation of the Man (or, as Coates has it, the “Dreamers,” at 110-111):

“Black on black” crime is jargon, violence to language, which vanishes the men who engineered the [restrictive property] covenants, who fixed the loans, who planned the projects, who built the streets and sold red ink by the barrel. And this should not surprise us. The plunder of black life was drilled into this country in its infancy and reinforced across its history so that plunder has become an heirloom, an intelligence, a sentience, a default setting to which, likely to the end of our days, we must invariably return.

The killing fields of Chicago, of Baltimore, of Detroit, were created by the policy of Dreamers, but their weight, their shame, rests solely on those who are dying in them. There is a great deception in this. To yell “black-on-black crime” is to shoot a man and then shame him for bleeding.” Please read on to review the entire ‘picture':

Iran Can Reek A Lot of Terror with Obama’s $100 Billion Gift

IRAN CAN BUY A LOT OF TERROR WITH $100 BILLION

by Jeff Jacoby at the Boston Glober:

“AS A CANDIDATE for president in 2004, John Kerry couldn’t bring himself to worry overmuch about Islamic terrorism. Today, as a secretary of state trying to sell a nuclear accord that would lift economic sanctions from the world’s leading state sponsor of Islamic terrorism, he still can’t.

During his run for the White House, Kerry insisted the danger from global jihadists should be viewed as primarily an “intelligence gathering, law enforcement, public diplomacy effort,” not a military conflict. “We have to get back to the place we were,” he told an interviewer — back to regarding suicide bombings and planes flying into skyscrapers as a manageable annoyance, not an existential threat. He likened terror attacks to prostitution and illegal gambling: “a nuisance” that “we’re never going to end . . . but we’re going to reduce.”

Ten years later, jihadist violence remains a deadly global reality, much of it fueled and financed by the Islamic Republic of Iran. That is why one of the gravest concerns about the proposed Iran deal is the massive financial windfall Tehran will reap as international sanctions come off. With well over $100 billion in frozen Iranian assets poised to be released, plus some $20 billion a year in new oil revenues, the Iranian regime will be awash with cash — cash it will be free to invest in its lethal proxies.

True to form, Kerry isn’t worried. Will Iran’s sanctions-relief jackpot mean more money for Hezbollah’s terror operations, for the Houthi rebels in Yemen, for Shiite militias in Iraq, for Bashar al-Assad’s ruthless killers? “Sure, something may go additionally somewhere,” he breezily told the BBC. “But if President Rouhani and his administration do not take care of the people of Iran, they will have an enormous problem.” ……please continue reading:

Why Hillary’s Losing……According to the Less Repulsive neoMarxist Left at Salon

Handsome is as Handsome Does!

Politically, there is nothing clean about Hillary Roddham Clinton. Review the collections of her doings, her performances throughout her public life all loyally deceitful, contriving, arrogant, false-faced filled with the evils and the mouth to lead her today’s constituency, the violent feminist and black racist followings, the fascists of our day, to go with it all.

And where did, do these creatures come from…..the American universities who train today’s Hillaryites.

The folks at Salon pretend they are the more sweet-talking among these barbarian Democrats of our day, more akin to the Sandra Fluke crazies than Al Shaptonites. In the article below Salon folks, for the first time in their lefty impulses imply, suggest, hint that the iceberg of the feminist American hating world, Hillary Clinton seems to be NOT WINNING:

THIS IS WHY HILLARY’S LOSING: THE ISSUE JEB BUSH AND DONALD TRUMP UNDERSTAND, WHICH MAY KEEP CLINTON FROM THE WHITE HOUSE

“Her negatives are almost as bad as Trump’s. She’s not trusted, and losing swing states. Start talking about reform!…..so writes BILL CURRY. He continues:

“As people looked away in disillusionment… we know what filled the void… The lobbyists… the special interests who turned our government into a game only they can afford to play. They write the checks and you get stuck with the bills… they think they own this government, but we’re here today to take it back. The time for that politics is over. It’s time to turn the page.
–Barack Obama, fall of 2008

Politicians are going to destroy this country. They are weak and ineffective. They are controlled by the lobbyists of the special interests. Every one of these lobbyists that give money expects something for it… They could take a politician and have him jump off this ledge.
–Donald Trump, last Wednesday

And here you thought Trump was wrong about everything. Chatting up CNN’s Anderson Cooper, he became the second GOP candidate in two days to pose as a reformer. Last Monday, Jeb Bush impersonated one in a ‘major speech’ at Florida State University. Nor was Bush first in the pool. In his May 27 kickoff, Rick Santorum, the evangelical teen idol of 2012, cited corruption 10 times and abortion just twice. Santorum’s attempted makeover might have raised more eyebrows were he not flat-lining at roughly 1 percent in the polls.

A day after Santorum’s announcement, George Pataki became the first candidate in either party to propose a specific ethics reform. Pataki called for a revolving door bill to stem the flood tide of ex-officials flowing into K Street from every government office. Trouble is, Pataki polls at roughly 0 percent, so when he talks, no one hears him either. With Bush and Trump blowing the bugle, more Republicans will fall in. If they blow loud enough, they may even wake up a few Democrats.”………Do read on….Learn all you can about Barack Hussein Obama’s Democrat Party presently leading today’s Marxist, racist, feminist Democrat Party:

Can Trump Trump the Odds to Win the Battle for the White House as a Republican?

Despite hints, Donald will NOT run third party in 2016…..Never, and he knows it. Behind his money and noise, Donald Trump will be a patriot. He will not stand by to see foul and vulgar Hillary lead the Nation. He wisely stated the threat as a warning IF the NRC wound up treating him untowardly during the campaign for the nominatin…as they might be dumb enough to do.

QUOTES OF THE DAY….by Allahpundit at HotAir:

“About three quarters of Republican early-state insiders say they believe Donald Trump has peaked — but many acknowledge that may also be wishful thinking…

“The McCain smear and giving out Graham’s cellphone? What an asshole,” vented a New Hampshire Republican, who says Trump has peaked. “Trumpism does not represent some deeper sentiment within the party, nor has he tapped into something a more conventional candidate can now co-opt. His candidacy has as much substance and meaning as cotton candy. I didn’t like him before. Now I loathe him.”

An Iowa Republican said, “yes,” when asked whether Trump has hit his zenith, but clarified, “I’d like to think so. But who the hell really knows anymore?”…

“GOP establishment (especially in early states) and some media are in a panic right now about Trump, and are quick to develop a storyline that he can’t last,” said a New Hampshire Democrat, who like all participants answered through an online submission form. “The truth is otherwise. The base loves him, he keeps showing top tier status nationally and in early states, he (like Hillary) has 100 percent name ID, and unlike all others, doesn’t need either traditional donors or dark money ones. While there are some parallels to [Ross] Perot, this is a new phenomenon and existing precedent doesn’t apply. Who knows where this goes?”

Hillary Might NOT Be Above the Law After All! Criminal Probe Sought…….but where to start?

Hillary’s email ‘inaccurcies’ to be probed?

Probe sought into possible ‘classified’ details in Clinton private e-mails

by Karen DeYoung, Sari Horwitz and Anne Gearan at the Washington Post:

“The Justice Department said Friday that it has been notified of a potential compromise of classified information in connection with the private e-mail account that Hillary Rodham Clinton used while serving as secretary of state.

A Justice official said the department had received a “referral” on the matter, which the inspector general of the intelligence agencies later acknowledged came from him.

The inspector general, I. Charles McCullough III, said in a separate statement that he had found information that should have been designated classified in four e-mails out of a “limited sample” of 40 that his agency reviewed. As a result, he said, he made the “security referral,” acting under a federal law that requires alerting the FBI to any potential compromises of national security information.

“The main purpose of the referral was to notify security officials that classified information may exist on at least one private server and thumb drive that are not in the government’s possession,” McCullough said in a statement, which was also signed by the State Department’s inspector general, Steve A. Linick.

The private server is Clinton’s, and the thumb drive, containing 30,000 e-mails she turned over to the State Department, is in the possession of her attorney, David Kendall.” There’s more below:
