Where’s The Tea Party? Try South Carolina.

January 29, 2012

If I were psychic I couldn’t have made a better call. I make no metaphysical claims… quite the contrary. Ever since the 2010 elections, the Republicrats and the Lame Stream lap dogs of the Obama regime have been at great pains to convince us, convince you, that we were an aberration, a momentary phenomenon, a freak of nature. We would soon be absorbed into the Republican establishment, which would once again rule all of us rubes with wisdom… nay, true sagacity.

We talked at great length about Mitt Romney and the central and overriding fact that he is a big government Republican in the establishment mold. Worse yet, he’s moderate to liberal on most issues that really matter to fully 60% of the citizens of this country that consider themselves to be conservative.

That’s the one thing that Mitt Romney is not. No matter what the repeated battery from his PACs… those unaccountable political garbage grinders behind which Mr. Milquetoast can hide, while devastating anyone who is perceived as a threat to his vanilla Republicrat candidacy. Ask Herman Cain.

Romney’s all-too-cute destruction of Herman Cain’s candidacy with a (most likely) ‘paid’ bimbo eruption, during which not a single one of the supposed victims could articulate anything remotely connecting Herman to any impropriety, other than one very vague generalization of making one ‘lady’ uncomfortable. The one direct charge of an extended extramarital affair by another turned out to be just so much more opportunism by a bought-and-paid-for bimbo. Nonetheless, it had the desired effect, as Herman withdrew from the 2012 presidential race rather than have his family dragged through the filth generated by the Romney PAC. This may prove to be the lynch pin to end Romney’s presidential pretentions.

Newt Gingrich is a flawed human, as are we all. He’s made some serious mistakes in attacking Bain Capital, giving the impression of anti-capitalism which the Romnites and the leftist press have been quick to take advantage of. Fact: Bain Capital did raid several companies, resulting in their bankruptcy. But Newt Gingrich is no anti-capitalist. He led the Reagan ‘revolution’, bringing fiscal sanity to the lefty mess left by ‘Jimma Cata’. None other than Nancy Reagan herself was generous in her praise of Newt’s efforts and his unwavering support for the Reagan Conservative Revolution. Putting the lie to another of the Romney PACs whole-cloth prevarications.

Florida is being touted by the leftist press and the Romney team (et al) as the end of the campaign. That’s it, it’s in the bag. That presumptive thing fostered by the ever shifty RNC establishment again. Um… gee whiz, it’s those pesky Tea Party guys again. Romney was supposed to be nine points ahead in Florida as of yesterday. I’m not so sure. There have been many Tea Party types who, disgusted with the savaging of Herman Cain, have been waiting out on the sidelines and are beginning to stir in huge numbers with Herman Cain’s surprise endorsement of Newt Gingrich.

Herman Cain stood a darn good chance of capturing the Republican nomination, which is why he had to be destroyed. I’ll tell you what must be giving not only Romney but MaoBama himself hives… the thought of a Gingrich candidacy in which he drafts Herman Cain as his running mate. Talk about a living nightmare for the communist regime of our wannabe Mahdi President Barack Hussein Obama and the febrile establishment Repubics (thanks, Mark Levin).

The South Carolina Tea Party Patriots fired the first shot. It won’t be the last.

Walking Into The Back Blast.

January 21, 2012

A ‘back blast’ is the blast cone behind certain weapons that utilize the back blast to minimize recoil. ‘Walking into your own back blast’ is a term for just plain stupidity. When I was in the Marine Corps, walking behind a 106 recoilless rifle would get you dead if you were close, or just knock you on your ass and maybe blow out your eardrums from about 15 to 30 feet away. Not a smart move.

ABC and, by association, all of the DNC/Administration surrogates of the Lame Stream press may have stepped in it with the brazenly timed, extremely shallow interview with Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife of some eighteen years, Marianne. Naturally, as with all of these DeMarxist straw horses, they posit all of these things as fact when, in fact, almost all of these Marxist publicity stunts turn out to have back stories they aren’t anxious to have see the light of day.

Marianne has given several interviews along the same lines over the years. I’m not going to say she is an embittered, spiteful woman venting her spleen once again. However, you have to question the very fact that she agreed to the interview in the first place with a network who, at the behest of their Marxist masters, timed the interview at the precise moment that, in their sick judgment, gave them the best chance of destroying Newt Gingrich… just as he rightly begins to surge in North Carolina.

All of us know divorced people… it’s a sad commentary on our times. Many of us also have friends on both sides of these broken marriages, and it seems like there’s always one who, for whatever reason, can never let go and move on with their lives. Marianne strikes me as this type of person, given her history of willingness to hang out the family laundry. Now we find out that the network stalked her for a couple of months… bottom feeding their way to a smear on Newt?

Enter the back blast. The aforementioned bottom feeders have brutally excoriated Conservative after Conservative, in their desperate need to defend the indefensible Barack Obama. Part of that is our own fault. The self-proclaimed, non-existent Republican establishment has been working in full time overdrive to convince the nation of the inevitability of their milquetoast moderate Mitt Romney, arguably the author of Obamacare with his Massachusetts Romneycare which, of and by itself, gives all Conservatives serious pause.

Hang on to your hats, folks. Newt has a damned good chance of winning South Carolina and his message is beginning to resonate across the country. The backlash which is hitting the Lame Stream Media is more than richly deserved. The sheer volume of lies and prevarication, with which they have attempted to suborn the truth for their Marxist masters, has finally reached the tipping point. They may have propelled the one guy to victory that they absolutely, unequivocally don’t want to run against their welfare state boss… not only in South Carolina but in the Republican primaries as a whole.

I like Newt’s fire and the intense focus he brings to the critical issues facing this nation. We need a fighter and not a milquetoast hack like Mitt Romney, constantly parroting the establishment line. Rick Santorum is a nice guy with solid Conservative values, but he’s not the guy for this time and this place.

Remember, the aim is the destruction of Barack Hussein Obama and his entire regime. Just like Newt said… “I want to knock him out”.

Leave The Personal Insults To The Left.

June 23, 2010

South Carolina Rep. Nikki Haley achieved a convincing victory in the gubernatorial runoff, but not without having to endure the all-too-common slur campaign and personal attacks. She will now face Democrat Vincent Sheheen in November.

Nikki Haley and family celebrate.

What makes the story so sickening is the fact that some of the character assassinations were from Republicans. A conservative blogger, Will Folks, made allegations of a most extreme nature, the details of which I will not recount here as I find them deeply offensive. Perhaps he thought it would give him the fifteen minutes of fame that he craves, something becoming ever more elusive to bloggers given the rapidly increasing numbers of political commentators on the internet. Whatever the reason, the possible damage caused to the Haley family and the Republican Party’s chances are inexcusable.

I asked Skip recently how he can laugh off some of the biting personal remarks that he receives from ‘liberal’ readers – an amazing feat of psychology on their part, as they don’t know the first thing about him, other than his political views. Of course, they are always way off the mark… the usual references to ‘racist’, ‘KKK’, along with the obligatory comparisons of the present situation to the Bush era (will they still be doing that in the 22nd century?) and demonization of the Tea Party. Possibly, Skip’s Marine training taught him to ignore the petty verbal attacks and concentrate on the real battle.

Jake Knotts

I tend to take things more personally, which also includes derogatory remarks aimed at others who do not deserve such treatment. Which leads me to Jake Knotts. Said as a joke, Mr. Knotts? While I seriously question the predilections of the President, Nikki Haley does not deserve this sort of bigotry from a member of her own party. Perhaps a touch of jealousy of a lady who is talented and could well go on to greater things. Do us all a favor, Mr. Knotts… leave the name-calling and personal attacks to the Democrats, you shame the Republican Party.

Earlier today, I read an article about the USA soccer team. It listed the players, along with their ethnic origin. To me, it encapsulated the spirit of the United States. Eleven players with different ancestral nationalities, two of which are naturalized citizens themselves. When they come together, they do so under one flag – the flag of the United States of America. That is the basis of American exceptionalism. The desire of people of all ethnic backgrounds to succeed, to help the country succeed by their efforts and, most importantly, to uphold the principles laid down in the Constitution.

We would like to wish Nikki Haley all the best for November, and good luck to Team USA later today. To both, ‘Go get ’em!’
