Still think the establishment GOP is your friend?

A Guest Post by Dick Bachert

I’ve posted this around the net a number of times and do so again inasmuch as THIS is a constantly recurring problem and some may not grasp how widespread it is. And now that the RNC has OPENLY declared war on the TEA Party, it should be clear to all why I have for a few decades cautioned my many friends to NOT SEND THE RNC A NICKLE.

frayedOver the years – when, to steal a line from Billy Joel, I wore a younger man’s clothes – I was involved with several pretty solid conservative candidates for Congress. One was a Democrat (Lawrence Patton McDonald) – because that was the only way he could win in that district. Those old-timers who know Larry’s record will tell you that he was a solid an anti-communist America Firster and more Republican than the Pubbies in nearby districts at the time. (His mother’s cousin was General George Patton from whom he got the middle name – and his incredible resolve and love of this country.) How ironic that he, like General Patton, was also assassinated by the communists they both despised. It was my honor to introduce Larry at his last public speech in the district before that ill-fated KAL007 flight!

Those other candidates ran as Republicans and each had to pass my rigid litmus test or I went looking for someone who did. For that reason, I hooked up with what the TRADITIONAL country club Pubbie establishment types believed were too radical for their refined tastes. I served as treasurer for several and in other capacities for more.

As those campaigns began to unfold and it became clear to the country clubbers that these guys 1) had a shot and 2) were pretty independent thinkers who would be hard to keep on the reservation once they got sworn in, the local Pubbies communicated that information to the Republican National HQ types who rather quickly sent in campaign “professionals” ostensibly to lock up the impending victory.

Instead, in nearly every case to which I was privy, these “professionals” proceeded to TORPEDO our guy’s campaign in subtle but effective ways.

From that experience I can tell you that the Pubbies at the HQ in D.C. would rather have a Democrat win a given district than have a pubbie up there who would embarrass them by refusing to follow the party line.

nacho friendIf YOU become involved in campaigns for solidly conservative, America and Constitution loving, hard-nosed, independent thinking candidates in 2014 and beyond – and I pray many of you do — please DO NOT trust any of those folks from GOP HQ in Washington. If they want to send you no-strings cash for your campaign, take it. If, however, they “suggest” sending in one of their “professionals,” tell them to fuggetaboutit.

They ARE WHO GOT US INTO THIS MESS AND THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS!!!!

“The common and continual mischief of the spirit of Party is
sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to
discourage and restrain it.” G. Washington

(BTW, My genealogical research informs me that my 5th great-grandfather, one John Carpenter, was one of George Washington’s Virginia neighbors and fought with GW in the French and Indian War and the Revolution. Prior to that, John traveled with GW during his survey of the Northwest Territories.)

Outage continues at Free Republic

Problems at popular news site “Free Republic” have continued into a second day.

“They changed their IP address last month from 209.157.64.201 to 209.157.64.200,” said conservative blogging legend Nuke Gingrich. I haven’t heard if they are having any technical issues. They finished their quarterly fundraiser a few days ago, so money’s not the problem. It’s too early to rule out cyber mischief from either the Chinese, or the Obama people. Neither one of them care too much for the bitter clingers over at FR,” Gingrich said.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and will provide updates as we learn more.

Where there’s a will, there’s a relative

Here are two posts for your consideration this evening.

First, from Andrew Malcolm at the LAT “Top of the Ticket”.

According to the Associated Press, Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist at Ancestry.com, says the president and the hockey mom [Sarah Palin] are 10th cousins by way of common ancestor Pastor John Smith, who settled in Massachusetts in the 17th century. [...]

And if that weren’t weird enough, Tyler is also claiming that conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh is also a 10th cousin of President Obama, once removed.

Malcolm lightheartedly concludes, “Since Thanksgiving is just a tad more than a month away, what do you think are the odds that President Obama invites his cousins over for the traditional American feast? “

I commented on his blog that while I doubt the Palins and the Limbaughs are on the official WH Guest List, stranger things have been known to happen.

For example, as Free Republic points out, Hawaii law HRS 338-18 defines a person with “direct and tangible interest” for the purpose of obtaining certified copies of vital records as … “A person having a common ancestor with the registrant.”

Now that common ancestry has been established, Palin, Limbaugh, et al can legally request the yet to be released Long Form Birth Certificate for President Obama.

Stranger things, indeed.

French Quarter Beatdown

Allee Bautsch, a Bobby Jindal fundraiser, and her boyfriend Joe Brown were assaulted in the French Quarter Friday night for “wearing a Palin button,” according to a story pieced together by the Louisiana news blog The Hayride.

The Hayride confirmed from a visitor with Allee Bautsch … “in the hospital Saturday morning that she and Brown were followed and attacked expressly because they had Palin pins on (she heard one of the attackers say “Let’s get them, they have Palin pins on”) – so the attack WAS politically motivated as its victims understood it. It was not a mugging, it was not an argument gone wrong and it was not a bar fight.”

A few days ago, following the MSM narrative, Cokie Roberts compared the rhetoric of Tea Partiers to the first shots in the War Between the States at Ft. Sumter. I’ll be interested in reading her response to this politically motivated assault which occurred in her home state. Hope we won’t have to wait too long.

Remember the Alamo!

Remember The Alamo! (166 Men Died For Freedom – March 6, 1836)

remember-the-alamoIn the face of increasing terror attacks on our rights and our freedoms from the media and their anointed deities in Washington, it is important that we remember our history.

And those who died looking at the guns of oppression for many days, but who refused to quit.

– And, in Goliad a few days before, remember also those who were mercilessly slaughtered AFTER meekly surrendering to the same invading horde of despots. Those deaths prove that “Quitting” and “Negotiations” are a fast way to death.

If McCain is “just like George Bush,” then Obama is just like ??

A tale in pictures, courtesy of Free Republic

The Obama campaign’s mantra is that John McCain is “just like George Bush”. Well, there are some distinct similarities.

Both men have the respect and admiration of our warriors.

Both were military aviators. McCain saw combat in Vietnam; George Bush volunteered, but was not sent.

And both men love this nation and understand American Exceptionalism…

The enemies of liberty and our country should make no mistake: America remains engaged in the world by history and by choice, shaping a balance of power that favors freedom. We will defend our allies and our interests. We will show purpose without arrogance. We will meet aggression and bad faith with resolve and strength. And to all nations, we will speak for the values that gave our nation birth.

I’m going to fight to make sure every American has every reason to thank God, as I thank Him: that I’m an American, a proud citizen of the greatest country on earth, and with hard work, strong faith and a little courage, great things are always within our reach.

So yes, on the important issues that define what America stands for, and what she must do to combat our enemies, John McCain and George Bush are alike.

——————————–

But who does Barack Hussein Obama remind us of? His liberal policies remind us of a litany of failed socialists.

Obama’s calls for more government handouts reminds us of the 2004 democratic VP candidate, John “Two Americas” Edwards….

Where one America works hard, has church BBQs and volunteers to defend our country; and the other America buys 28,000 square foot homes with proceeds from class action lawsuits, and spends $400 every two weeks at the beauty parlor.

—————————–

Obama’s pie in the sky, no drilling energy policy reminds us of the 2000 Democratic Presidential Candidate, Algore, who trots around the globe in a private jet, chastising the peasants for their wasteful carbon footprints…

and declaring the internal combustion engine to be the “greatest enemy” of mankind while utterly ignoring the gathering storm of islamic terrorism.

—————————–

Obama’s anti-gun, anti-second amendment record clearly reminds us of Michael Dukakis whose “Just say Yes” to gun control platform led to a thorough drubbing at the hands of George Bush’s father…

and to much deserved ridicule to this day.

——————————–

Obama’s pro-infanticide record and policies reminds us very much of the pro-abortion Mondale/Ferraro ticket, which had the same enthusiastic support from NOW and NARAL that Obama has….

and led to his excellent showing in 1984 where he held onto his home state of Minnesota, by 3,800 votes.

——————————–

And significantly, Obama’s limp wristed foreign policy in which he blames America first certainly reminds us of the last ‘unknown’ democratic candidate who received the mainstream media’s undying affection, Jimmy Carter….

who still to this day cannot discern friend from foe of the United States of America.

———————————

And by dragging along the media to see him workout and shoot hoops, Obama reminds us of the 2004 democratic presidential candidate, John F. Kerry, who also tried to mask his elitism and effete lifestyle….

but who unfortunately, just like during Obama’s bowling adventure, had rogue photographers capturing his real essence.

———————————

And finally, Obama reminds us very much of the last black democratic presidential candidate, Al Sharpton, whose Community Organizing prowess certainly rivals that of Obama….

except that Al still holds his hand above his heart for the Pledge of Allegiance.

——————————-

So yes indeed, this election is truly an election between “more of the same” and something new. Unfortunately for the Obama and Biden team, the “more of the same” applies to them, as they are merely a continuation in a long line of elite, effeminate, tax hiking, enviro-alarmist liberals, who have no concept what real Americans value.

——————————-

If they want to see what change looks like and they want to understand America and patriotism, all they have to do is make an appointment with the next Vice President of the United States.

Bush cowboys up

Right after I go on a rant about the President not going on the offense and taking it to the democrats, he cowboys up big time… Heh.

Speaking in Israel to the Knesset, President Bush made the following comment…

“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along . . . We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”

How do you know when Bush says the right thing? The democrats express “outrage”

Admitted plagiarist Joe Biden called it “bullshit”, as every prominent democrat raced to the microphones to denounce the President’s words.

Atta boy Mr. President! More, please.
