Bring It On Monday

Good morning peeps!

Bring it on! That’s how I feel right now toward the establishment and lame liberals and media.  I’d pretty much lost interest in most politics and tuned much of it out.  The GOP in Colorado has basically rolled over to play dead here and the libs are steamrolling their agenda thru in our state.

In 6 months we may look like California.  Our Tea Parties are so fractured and divided that Who’s On First makes more sense.  With Rand Paul floating his name out there, I have come to believe that the Paul family has chosen to take the role of being the perpetual POTUS campaigners to make sure that conservatives are never truly united.  They keep growing their ranks but with a Paul in the mix they will never join to support anyone else on a POTUS ticket that isn’t a Paul.  That means that we will forever be dividing the conservative/Tea Party vote two or even three ways in 2016 and possibly beyond.  That isn’t a recipe for success.  So now, as much as I think Rand is a nice guy and has some good ideas and I appreciate his solid voting record in the Senate, I don’t want him running in 2016.  He is more mainstream than his dad with his support for Israel and stand against Iran that will make him very appealing to lots of Tea Partiers but not enough.  It will be just enough to prevent unity for conservatives.  I don’t want him for POTUS and I don’t want him dividing the conservative votes in the primary and handing the win to a shrub.

Then again, with Colorado’s new pot laws, my state may be so high that we won’t know or care what is going on in 2016.  You could put a picture of a yummy munchie on the menu and that is what my state will nominate for POTUS.

Speaking of Colorado, Mr. Firelight has taken a fantastic new job that is a major step up for him and he is very happy and excited about it.  It affords us the ability to live anywhere in the west IF we wanted to.  I love our home here since it is home and I love every aspect of our life here.  I also love my kid’s school and our school district so prying me away from that would be very difficult.  He and at least one of my kids want to move somewhere warmer.  While we all love southern California, the taxes are insane and we didn’t win the powerball so that probably won’t work even though I am a beach girl at heart.  After our little weekend trip a few weeks ago to Arizona, he has been working hard on me to move there.  I’m 60/40 on the fence.  I could be persuaded but I’m still leaning toward staying here.  He is now lobbying our kids.  I think he missed his calling in life and should have gotten a job as a lobbyist in DC.  He has already offered bribes of a pool which I find totally unfair.  Who would not want that?  He is also now working on my parents to get them to want to move too.  I joke that they can all move out there and I’ll stay in Colorado so maybe then I’ll get some peace and quiet and sleep past 6:30am.

So is there any real news besides Gov. Palin gearing up to fight for this country?  I didn’t see any over the weekend, LOL!  But I tried to dig some up just I would have a quick report :)

Other News:

Where I grew up… he would be called a smug SOB (only not abbreviated)…

Yippee!! “Time to take matters into our own hands”… me thinks Jim and Sarah are new friends after their rally for Ted in Texas…

OK… I get his point… but again… epic failure in MESSAGING… they will never learn…

Oh Mr. President, we Americans would be so honored to have your greatness bless us with such a wonderful display of tradition by watching you skeet shoot…  pretty please… oh pretty, pretty, pretty please!

Finally someone told a citizen the truth

*snort*… We don’t think you are a squish… we know… and it wasn’t a “messaging” problem this time…

Yeah… this is a VERY good idea… just go ahead and piss off the rest of the mass of unwashed Americans by injecting yourself into governing their game… yes, things need to be looked at… they have an organization for that… they don’t need you…

Gasp!  You weren’t supposed to say this out loud…

“The children of Reagan“… has a nice ring to it…


Have a great Monday everyone!!


  • IsraeliCojones

    I have come to believe that the Paul family has chosen to take the role of being the perpetual POTUS campaigners to make sure that conservatives are never truly united.

    Best assessment on the Paul’s I’ve read in a long time.

    Thanks for the roundup and have a great day :)

    PS: ..and move towards the sun, it’s a life changer for the better (speaking from experience) :)

    PPS: Link for “*snort*… We don’t think you are a squish…” doesn’t work.

    And Ryan is a “smart dumbass”. Give me Palin’s “stupidity” any day, oh yes!

    PPPS: the kiddos at HA have played with the power-that-be’s nerves over there by posting on the Palin thread until it reached 2,016 (it’s now at 2,073). Still on the right column and about to disappear. They will think twice before they post anything on her next time.

    • section9

      Spot on, Cajones!

      The Pauls will be the modern version of Harold Stassen, only with more power. What I think Sarah will try and do is cut a deal with them, because I don’t think Rand is interested in playing games with the Establishment as his dad did. JMHO.

      Sarah always found a way to stay on decent terms with the Pauls, even though the followers had way too many Stormfront types in their ranks.

      • IsraeliCojones

        Rand won’t be the hardest to get behind a unified Conservative banner. The Stormfront types will: they hate Sarah. She’s a “neocon”, y’know * wink, wink *

        PS: Re. Erickson and our exchange on TOMcC, I’m quite busy at the moment but I’ll try to post the link on what he wrote after Tucson later on.

        He didn’t attack her on Tucson “because of Tucson”, he just buried her: she wasn’t worth the headache of defending her, you see, since she was toast anyway after the hate feist, and… c’est la vie.

        Typical “Conservative” cowardice. How I miss Andrew Breitbart.

        Have a great day, section :)

        • john norton

          One never knows if theres another AB or SP out there…the times bring these patriots out… ~ !

          • IsraeliCojones

            For the moment, AB hasn’t been “replaced” by anyone.

            And SP won’t be in a century, if, G-d forbid, anything would happen to her.

            PS: To paraphrase Ziegler (before he lost his mind); “The Sarah Palins of the world don’t grow on trees”

            • AmazedOne1

              Although AB’s work continues via the website — no one does it like he did.

              • IsraeliCojones

                Above all, I miss his chivalry. He could be called “a man where there are no men”.

    • Guest

       Nice to see ya! Have a great week!

      • IsraeliCojones

         You too, friend :)

    • Firelight

      I fixed the link for *snort*… We don’t think you are a squish :)

      I hope you are doing well IC!

      • indemind

         Thanks! …

      • IsraeliCojones

        Thanks for the well wishes, I need them (recovering from a tenacious laryngitis, and haven’t recovered my voice yet).

        Sarah must think of a way of getting rid of Boehner and Co.

        Maybe she should invite them to a bear hunt, I don’t know…

        • AmazedOne1

          Sorry to hear that you were sick, but really glad to see you now.

          • IsraeliCojones

            Thanks AO1 :)

            There’s something I would like to tell you, but I’m reluctant to say it in public.

            So I will say it rather cryptically:  This is a good place, here. Hope you understand.

            • AmazedOne1

              Yes, I do understand. Had a huge go-round last night that reaffirms the fact that this, here, is a good place to be.

              • IsraeliCojones

                 Good. Hoping to see you around. :)

                • AmazedOne1

                  With friends like you and MaMcGriz here — I will certainly be around!

  • LS as guest


    I doubt that, having seen him bowl, Obama’s photogs would want to get within range of his skeet shooting.

    I’m perhaps more cynical than that about Rand Paul’s following Dad into the ‘family business’, and he plays the pro-amnesty Establishment game with the rest of them.

    And congrats to Mr. Firelight.   I were you, Firelight, I’d be tempted to consider home schooling on something of the Palin residence plan: 9 or 10 months to the North and 2 to 3 months in AZ.

    • LS as guest


  • c4pfan

    No, CO needs ya! LOL  You can find places here with a pool too!

    As for the GOP in Colorado, people here should really think of what is going on nationally as to what happened here in CO.

    • Firelight

      I have to say c4pfan you are right.  I think many people underestimate just how effective and undetectable the Colorado model is until it is too late.  The Dems tested it on us here in CO but they are rolling it out nationally to pick off key red states.

      They didn’t even hide the fact of what they were doing and yet no one really saw them actually doing it here in Colorado so when the wave of blue washed thru the ballot boxes many were left mouths agape and scratching their heads.  Our state GOP and conservatives haven’t recovered since because they still have that same structure in place and it resurfaces every election cycle taking us deeper and deeper blue.

      When I see Jeremy Bird flaunt the fact that they are gunning for Texas I don’t take that lightly.  Many will dismiss or underestimate them but that would be a grave mistake.  The liberals would NEVER publicize their intention unless they feel confident that they have a strong “in” as a means to shift the state blue. 

      The Colorado model is VERY effective but it isn’t unbeatable.  I wish it was our strategy on the conservative side but it takes long term planning and a bit of sneakiness.  Our GOP is too stupid, too short-sighted and our conservatives/Tea Parties can’t cooperate in the short-term let alone the long term and neither group is good at picking their battles or offensive strategy.

      Everyone should read the book:

      The Blueprint: How Democrats Won the West (and Why Republicans Should Care), by Rob Witwer and Adam Schrager

      Here is an article with a short synopsis but the book is really better.  I would like to add that this book was written in 2010 and the state is still in disarray.  No one around here is convince that Colorado wanted to swing blue again and wanted Obama for a second time yet that is what happened and for the first time in a very long time, we lost the House and Senate to the Democrats.  Currently, the liberals have a super-majority in Colorado (Governor, House and Senate).  It makes it very hard for grassroots alone to overcome this strategy model for victory because it is so vast, so detailed and so well funded.

      Everyone can read this article because people need to understand that if Bird is publicizing his intent in Texas…  ALL Of this infrastructure is already set up.

  • deTocqueville1

    Thanks Firelight, I was laughing aloud through the whole piece on moving. I tell ya, you could be an accomplished author of humorous short stories! Perhaps you and Nancy could collaborate.

    I agree about Paul. I cannot make up my mind whether he is serious or just being mischievous. Perhpas a bit of both. I think he is intentionally keeping the Rubio/Bush machine off guard and playing defence. 

    Bonehead is just clueless! I have no idea how his mind works, if he indeed has one.  It is clear that the conservative constitutionalists are on the attack with De Mint, Cruz, Paul, Levin and Palin all on the same page and offering the same diagnosis of the GOP. I expect they willl now continue relentlessly to expose and critique the GOPe while systematically outlining an alternative constitutionally based policy structure with specific prescriptions, much the way Reagan did for the years leading up to the 76 Convention and beyond.

    As for Ryan, having watch him during the campaign and since, I conclude that he should stick to numbers. He really is out of his element when he gets into broader areas. Trying to be a ‘moderate’ conservative by praising the Clintons, talking about ‘cross the aisle’ stuff and flirting with immigration amnesty (sorry, reform) will no doubt endear him to the DC insiders but not the broad public, which remains more or less conservative.    

  • RefudiateGOPe

    Good morning all.

    Yesterday, to promote his quest to reform immigration policy, John McCain came out and gave one of the stupidest reasons for why he’s pushing for it: The Republicans did so poorly with Hispanics in the last election.  I can believe that many in the GOPe think that they must pander to the electorate instead of sticking to constitutional principles, but to come out on national TV and announce that, “We need to change the immigration laws because we need the votes” is beyond stupid.

    I think Governor Palin needs to step forward and smack down McCain, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and everyone else in the GOPe who are supporting the sham of “immigration reform”.  She needs to thank McCain for his service and then she needs to say, “Senator McCain, YOU ARE WRONG!”  This will not hurt her politically.  It will draw the Independents and the Reagan Democrats toward her.  

    I don’t have a problem with the concept of a “path to citizenship” per se, but I think we first need to talk about a “path to legality” and to honestly talk about how that path is entered and what will happen with those who don’t want to follow that path.  Neither of those paths need to be lined with primrose and cushioned with rose petals.  

    Some people say that immigration policy is complicated.  No, it’s not.  You secure the borders, you enforce the current immigration laws, you punish employers who hire illegals and you take away all the free stuff we give to the undocumented.  Do those four things and we’ll soon find that we don’t have much of an immigration problem.     

    • LS as guest

      A ‘path to legality’ is amnesty–and a boon to Democrat voter rolls.

  • Nancy6

    I am pretty sure I have no pull with Mr. Firelight, whatsoever, but, I vote “no” on the move and I am prepared to go ACORN voting on him.
    Stay strong, Firelight!
    Which kid is it that has given in?…..and what sort of bribery will change his or her mind?:)

  • RefudiateGOPe

    I still like my Senator, Rand Paul.  I suspect that he’s learned something from his Dad.  By saying now that a run for POTUS is possible, he forces the media to publicize what he says.  His words have now become the words of a potential POTUS candidate and not the words of an obscure Senator from a state of four million people.  That’s exactly what his Dad did.  And as looney as his Dad seemed, he was right on a lot of stuff.

    A while back, our great friend and commenter, Brian, opined that Governor Palin should go ahead and announce that she plans to run in 2016.  His logic was that it would force the media to deal with her and that it would make her words resonate even more.  There’s a lot of merit in what he wrote.  One thing it would do is take away the media’s favorite false meme that she’s irrelevant.  If she did go ahead and announce, just watching the contortions of the media and the GOPe  would be quite entertaining.  I’d start buying popcorn by the case.

    • deTocqueville1

      I like him also. Regardless of his ambitions, he is still a conservative and one of the good guys in the Senate.

    • Jim809

      Rand Paul is well placed in the Senate. It enables him to hold the feet of the administration toadies to the fire, and he does that very well. Even though he is also my Senator, I do not like the idea of him running for president. He would make a much better president than Rubio or Christie or any of the others, except Governor Palin, but I hope he doesn’t run. I believe the 2016 campaign began the other day when Sarah Palin terminated her contract with Fox News.

    • Firelight

      I like him in the Senate.  I don’t want him for Potus and I don’t like politicians who tease their supporters and media just for more air time.  I take him at his word that he is serious otherwise my respect for him would disappear and I do currently have respect for him. I think he has been a good Senator and want to see him stay there.

  • IsraeliCojones


    It’s time.

  • RA

    I pop in here every once in awhile to read what is going on, and love Palin and what she stand for.  Firelight, I hear ya on the Ron/Rand Paul movement.  To me, it is so obvious that the Ron/Rand Paul movement could have originated in the Democrat’s back room.  They have ways of manipulating their followers to not vote for anyone unless it is “their” guy.  I’m guessing a lot more conservatives would be in office, if the Ron Paul movement had not been going on.  My question: why do the conservatives not try to do the same thing?  Get a Ron Paul movement going in the democrat party!  Figure out a way to get a handful of democrats to only vote for a certain person (that is central enough to get followers, but have a few things that will not cause a huge threat to the party), or convince them it is better to not vote at all.  Genius idea, really.

    • IsraeliCojones

       The Democrats already have one: he’s called Obama.

      • RA

         Haha, yeah.  Now, if we could just figure out how to plug in someone like o, in future elections that will keep Hillary or whomever from taking it all – of course, ideally, this person would not be such a hit, to actually win. :)  It’s just they have so many different things going on to make sure they get their guy… why not try some of the same things back on them? 

        • IsraeliCojones

          Yeah, why not?

          But thing is, they are Marxists, so they are already wired to march in locksteps. Behind anybody. Plus they want victory (that’s why you’ll never see a Democrat attacking another Democrat publicly), so they’ll march in locksteps behind the one who will grant them victory, not any other.

          You have to give them that: when it’s about what matters (power), they know nothing about division.

        • blackbird

          how about Alan Grayson or is he too coo coo.

    • Firelight

      The Pumas pretty much did that and defected but they never found anyone to get behind on the Dem side.  Many came over to support Sarah and many just sat it out. 

      The problem with conservatives and GOP in general is that at the core is individualism.  We don’t “lockstep” for a greater cause.  No one can ever agree on what to compromise on so that we can all unite.  Move right, move left, there is no agreement so ultimately money is king.

      The democrats are proving more powerful because at their core is collectivism.  They do understand compromising ideology or morals for a greater cause.  They would NEVER have let what happened to Gov. Palin happen to one of their own.  Heck, they protect a pedophile who is under investigation for using an underage prostitute.

      I’m not sure there will ever be an answer for unity amongst conservatives and Republican rank and file without changing the core of who we are and I would not want to see that happen.  I would never want to become collectivist.  That defeats the purpose of the fight.  I have to believe there is another way to get everyone to unite for a greater cause than themselves but in today’s culture I’m just not sure anymore.

      • IsraeliCojones

        Sooooo spot-on, baby!

        There are only two ways to get there:

        – either a miracle

        – or a cataclysm.

        I pray for the miracle. But I believe in the cataclysm (unfortunately).

  • Nancy6

    When Hillary says sometimes it doesn’t even take words for her to communicate with Obama, does that mean she gives the middle finger to him as she scratches her cheek too, or are we talking the blinking morse code thing? Because I’m not sure he can tell what she’s saying with those mongous glasses on.

  • Riley4Palin

    Happy Monday!

    Accept no substitute.

    Once your brand is established, it is hard to duplicate, replace, or retire.

    The GOPe with the help from their buddies in “conservative media” has spent the last few years trying to retire the Palin brand.  It has worked out so well that the National Review and HotAir still think they lead in conservative political traffic. LOL. Are they the “go to” outlets for politicians trying to make news nowadays?  Hardly.  It is for insecure pols trying to make a name for themselves who still need accolades, stroking, and back rubbing.  Do you think the light bulb went off at both outlets over the weekend when they received more traffic in a weekend of Palin news than the last three years of pushing Christie, Jeb Bush, Romney, Rubio, and Ryan on all of us?  Pathetic.  Can you say out of touch with middle America??  Who did Palin grant the first interview to?  The Big’s.  Andrew Breitbart is smiling down and still taking names.

    I am so happy for Palin.  Fox News spent the last few years pushing the same people with the same lame themes. Why would Palin want to stick around a place like that?  She is the only brand in America that is still alive and kicking and as much as the media wants to put her on the shelf, they can’t help themselves and want more of her.  Both parties and media foes have tried for years to replace her with their own chosen candidates and media personnel and they just can’t seem to do it.

    Having said all that, I can’t wait to see more of the funny and sarcastic Sarah in the coming weeks and months who will continue to go after the GOPe and media people who don’t know what the hell they are talking about.  Of course that will be in between establishing her new media strategy with different outlets and vehicles to attract new people to her side.  Politics is depressing enough without having to listen to a bunch of insecure ego-driven politicians out there telling us what we should do, not do, and accept even though they don’t follow their own rules.  Both parties are guilty of it and their messaging gets lost after their first sentence. 

    A true leader like Palin leads, never follows.  She doesn’t tell people what they should do or believe.  First and foremost, she walks the walk.  She doesn’t spend hours at a so-called conservative summit where MSNBC gets invited, and then claims to be a conservative who tries to tell us minions what we should do next.  She doesn’t spend days on a cruise ship kissing ass with bloggers so that she can get good press.  She doesn’t spend lots of Sunday mornings with northeast elites discussing politics when millions of Americans still see Sunday as a day of rest, renewal, and reflecting on their faith.  She doesn’t take time out of her schedule to give Obama a hug while giving the middle finger to conservatives.  She doesn’t try to put Reagan on the backburner and give the Bush crowd a free pass on everything. 

    Sarah Palin always watches and listens to the voters of America.  What makes a conservative stay home from big elections?  Electing moderate Republicans who speak and act like Democrats.  Time for the Palin brand to reappear and teach these boys a lesson or two or a hundred.  Ironic that the goal for all of them was to make sure she disappeared forever and by their own actions she is once again jumping back in the ring for another good rumble.

    I hope they puchase some new protective gear stat.  I’ll take a sassy rested Alaskan who spends her free time kick boxing, running, hunting, and fishing anyday over a smug elite geeky politician who likes to spend their free time talking politics and nothing else.

    • deTocqueville1

      Wonderful post! Thanks.

  • AmazedOne1

    Firelight, I vote for warmth. You can live in Calif without paying beach prices by heading inland a bit. Or, AZ has some interesting places, too. Be careful, though, and avoid the very hottest cities in both those states.

    Edited to add — When we were considering a move to Phoenix, we went there to stay with friends while we scouted for neighborhoods, etc. Our friends came back from an afternoon at the movies saying that they had allowed the kids to ride home without their seat belts because the buckles had gotten too hot for little hands to handle (even though they had purposely parked in the shade).

    No Phoenix.

    • Firelight

      We considered inland CA but the high taxes and high cost of living for everything else besides housing is still an issue.  We lived in CA for 2 years in the mid 2000’s and loved it but it was expensive and we only had one kid.  Schools also concern me but I am quietly waiting for the state to go bankrupt, union contracts to be severed and liberals to fall into the ocean.  Then the conservatives can have a land run and take over the state.  I’ll lead the pack :)  You would find me happily perched on the beach somewhere.

      • IsraeliCojones

         Can you imagine yourself living a few meters from Sarah?

        I know I can imagine you! :)

        • Firelight

          No, and I really hadn’t thought about it in that way.  Hubby has us all very focused on golf, palm trees and warm weather while I’ve been focused on schools, houses, scorpions and snakes.

          • IsraeliCojones

            I’ve been focused on schools, houses, scorpions and snakes.


            • Firelight

              I was thinking of all that dirt/sand in Arizona and then I reminded myself that *above all else* I can NOT ship you dirt to Israel or US Customs will come hunt me down, lol!!  I even had to sign my name promising I was not doing that… oh the temptation :)

      • AmazedOne1

        LOL — OK, you’ve made a good case. However, I still vote for warmth. As IC says, go live near Sarah (maybe not quite the same neighborhood, but there are more affordable houses not too far away).

        • Firelight

          I highly doubt I could afford to live near Gov. Palin and I honestly would find it a bit weird.  She deserves her own space and I’m not a star struck kind of person.  I usually laugh at the people who cry at concerts (I know…I’m working on it)

          • AmazedOne1

            Sure, and that’s why I just said in more affordable houses. A move to anywhere in the state would be just for the weather, not to oogle Sarah.

            And, yeah, I knew you weren’t the starstruck sort. Not at all!!! You’re much too down-to-earth and sensible for that.  

            (showing my age here) You just brought back a memory: The very first concert I went to was the Beatles because a friend loved them and she bought the tickets. I had heard them on the radio, but had no idea that I was getting myself into a crying mob. I enjoyed the music, but did not join in to the hysteria. :-)

      • section9

        Yeah, I’m somewhat concerned that you would want to move there at all, but I can understand waiting until the House of Cards collapses and everyone comes in and buys stuff for nickels on the dollar.

        The problem are the People’s Schools. You would have to send your kids to Christian School. California public education is a joke. In the sixties, it was the envy of the Western World.

      • lonestar

        Whatever you do, stay away from the Inland Empire, actually stay away from the areas near east LA all the way to San Bernardino.  I did live in Chino Hills for awhile, not as bad as some other places, but I would never live there again. We lived there for the convenience of the Ontario Airport.
        Also lived in Camarillo, Santa Rosa Valley, for a number of years, very nice place except for the areas closest to Oxnard.  Much better climate than the other side of the grade, Thousand Oaks.
        Phoenix is doing pretty bad. How about Idaho? Coeur-d’alene.

        • Firelight

          I love Idaho but hubby wants warm…  we have some friends in Idaho and it isn’t much warmer than where we are now.

          My preference is to stay right where I am.

  • senator20526

    Morning all…..Firelight, moving to Arizona would be great….You would be neighbors to Gov. Palin and only 90 minute drive to winter skiing in Flagstaff…PLUS every elected state official is Republican….

    “Where I grew up… he would be called a smug SOB (only not abbreviated)…”

    He looks like a five year old going “Hey! lookie what I can do!!” Or like a Saturday Night Live super-ninja wannabe. 

    Good grief.

  • MaMcGriz

    OK… I get his point… but again… epic failure in MESSAGING… they will never learn…”

    True enough, but maybe it can serve somehow toward the ‘hey let’s you and him fight’ squad’s tool kit.

    We should always do our part to encourage opportunities for internecine war amongst the dems, even when they’re created by such (ahem) inadvertent means as a mortally mangled message.

    But bless his heart. We know he meant well, or something.


    Firelight, people would and still do, scoff when I say that the Tea Party needs to grow the Hell up. They need to band together…..combine their monies, develop a platform and get behind a candidate….period!!
    The Tea Party ideology of not being a party but a “movement”, is bull and it’s worn out.

  • MaMcGriz

    Where is the SPAK clip of Sarah stopping on the trail to Billy’s and shooting skeet with the boys?

    I’m going looking, but if you find it first, please put it up. Everywhere.

    And smile.

    Meanwhile, one wonders if this might inspire a new action toy line, the Skeet-shooting Barky Doll.

         Good clip! Thank you! I’d forgotten she’d hit a first shot on that one, too. The episode I’m thinking of is the one where they took atv 4 wheelers out to Billy’s for the gold to make her folks’ 50th anniversary gift. Remember? On the way they came upon some guys out shooting skeet and stopped to talk. The guys asked her if she wanted to shoot and she did. She hit the first pull. First shot.

        The idea of flooding a bunch of websites (lib and otherwise) with these ‘first shot’ clips gives me images of cringing, foaming at the mouth, abject fear in the hearts of her enemies. The snot and outrage will fly.

        I’m off to the kitchen. Glad you’re here.

        • AmazedOne1

          Yeah, that’s a good idea! And, thanks for the warm welcome.

             My pleasure.

    One of my grandfathers was a professional wrestler in the 1950s. He was a real fighter – so he eventually got out of it because of the corruption. He wasn’t to be bought or intimidated by the organizational elite.

    Steve Bannon on Hannity yesterday compared our government to professional wrestling – mostly scripted with generally pre-determined outcomes. I agree.

    So “R vs D” puts on a great show for us, giving the false impression of an authentic battle, while the only real winners – the PPC – count our money. And then the PPC decides on the script for tomorrow’s fight.

    We need a real fighter in order to shake things up, fight the right battles, and fight to win. One who won’t be bought or intimidated to follow the approved of script.

    I believe it’s time to tag Sarah Palin into the ring.

      The fact that Politico wrote an article shows that Sarah’s PAC is important to them.

    Mark Levin goes through 32 years of Presidential elections’ history and finds out this:

    Reform on Immigration NEVER benefits the Republicans. Never. (So McCain: shut up!)

    The average is 65%-35% (D-R) whatever the elections and whatever the Republican reforms on it.

  • section9

    If you want an idea about how foolish the memecasting is among the inhabitants of the Propaganda Ministry right now, exhibit “A” is their notion that Palin will disappear without FNC as a platform.

    This is how no-talent hacks like Joe Scarborough and Ed Gillespie peddle conventional wisdom to the echo chamber and end up believing their own bullsh*t. They are no-talent hacks who need a TV network as a platform to support their mediocre careers. So when a gifted natural like Palin comes along, they can’t believe that she can do just fine without a Svengali like Roger Ailes to manage her career for her.

    Pathetic. But that’s the Propaganda Ministry we have today.

    • IsraeliCojones

      She resigns —-> her political career is over.
      (4 months later, a 4 million bestseller)

      She doesn’t go to CPAC —-> her political career is over.
      (brings down the house at CPAC three years later)

      She’s smeared for Tucson —-> her political career is over.
      (all the media following the Bus Tour like nutcases)

      She films SPAK —-> her political career is over.
      (highest rated documentary on TLC)

      She doesn’t run —-> her political career is over.
      (most of her endorsements win)

      She doesn’t speak to Fox —-> her political career is over.
      (Live in fear till the next time she opens her mouth)

      Pathetic indeed.

      Levin just demolished the Schmo at the end of his program tonight and heaped great praise on Palin. I urge you all to catch it He has enormous respect and admiration for her and there will be joint events in the future for sure.  

      • IsraeliCojones

        Darn it! I missed it.

        Thanks for the head ups :)

        • deTocqueville1

          I would check out Scoop’s site later, he has a lot of Mark’s stuff from tonight already. As you know, it will also be on Mark’s audio downloads in a couple of hours.

    I’m coming back from HA and people are utterly demoralized by this soon to be voted immigration bill.

    Many talks of 3rd party. Many. They can’t take it anymore.

    • IsraeliCojones

      Some posts over there. Interesting and extremely worrisome:

      The Republican party is trying to destroy the Republican party. Surreal. Pure suicide.

      KMav on January 28, 2013 at 9:18 PM

      I think we’ve entered a psychotic period of American politics, unlike anything in our history. We’ve had periods of great and destructive passions, but what we’re dealing with now is unique and sick, I think. The Republicans seem to rush lemming-like toward policies destructive to themselves and the country with a frenzy in weird proportion to their increasing failures, as if madly seeking atonement, but from the wrong source. It’s a masochism, a frantic immoderate compulsion to prove their moderation on one hand and appease their enemy on the other. The Left, meanwhile, is being driven by this antic idiocy, like a predator sensing the spastic motions of its prey. Their own criminality and lust for power compounds daily; this makes sense, as they operate with no systemic checks and balances, from either the totally abject and deluded Republicans or their corrupted consort in the media. Where does all this end? We have no point of comparison for something this sick and strange.

      rrpjr on January 28, 2013 at 9:10 PM

      This is going to happen. It helps Rubio/ Ryan in a 2016. Let’s get past this xenophobic crap.
      Illinidiva on January 28, 2013 at 8:03 PM

      LOL. More like Rubio/Chavez. Or maybe even Rubio/Castro. Go ahead and vote for them. I won’t. You’ll have to find an illegal to vote GOP in my place because I’m done with that sh!t party. They are replaying 2006-2008 and the result will be exactly the same – a dead political party that is a pariah to all. And there won’t be a Tea Party to dig them out of the grave they’ve dug for themselves. Either a third party will emerge and the GOP will just go away or there will be a national divorce and you folks and the lunatic left can enjoy what’s left of the American Socialist Superstate – but don’t you dare try to sneak over the border into the new Constitutional Union of American States. You won’t be welcomed and our borders, and the sovereign laws of the interior will be enforced.

      ThePrimordialOrderedPair on January 28, 2013 at 8:53 PM

      You’re so infatuated with LoverBoy you have become incapable of rational thought.

      If either Ryan or Rubio is on the ticket, there will be no more GOP. Millions of conservatives like me will vote third party. If 2010 has taught us anything, it’s that even when the GOP wins we lose.

      bw222 on January 28, 2013 at 8:42 PM

      As rrpjr says:

      Where does it all end?

      • IsraeliCojones

         And two more which sum it all:

        Democrats know what they are doing. They are playing chess. The Republicans are playing Russian roulette.

        KMav on January 28, 2013 at 9:28 PM

        With four out of six chambers loaded.

          While we need immigration reform, it needs to be orderly and lawful. Right now, the Big Money Republicans and the Democrats want Cheap Labor and New Voters. This has nothing to do with a “pathway to citizenship’. It’s a conspiracy to keep labor rates down between the two parties. Period.

          • LS as guest

            We need immigration enforcement more than immigration reform.

            And yes, it’s about cheap labor for those legally bribing our pols, but for Dems it’s above all about minting cheap new Democrat voters.

            McCain, Graham and Rubio are among the Gang of Eight on this, and tellingly there’s no actual border enforcement requirement–only a panel and ‘recommendations’.

    Lipstick or Firelight, please put up the very funny parody vid Mr L put up on his twitter!

    • Firelight

      I saw that and it is funny.  If Lipstick doesn’t put it up tomorrow then I’ll put it up on Wednesday (if I remember).

    A sane voice in the whole madness:

    Jeff Sessions warns against rush to amnesty

    • c4pfan

      Ted Cruz too.

  • pete4palin

    I know there are still some good people who hope the GOP will reform itself….   I’m sorry, it’s not going to happen.  The longer you wait for it to happen, the less time you will have to put effort into something useful. We can easily make the GOP the real third party without too much planning…. just doing.
    The next step (like Hillary) is to form a PAC ready made for Sarah. I understand the currant one can not spend money on a possible Sarah run. 
    Those two steps will change everything.     

    • c4pfan

      Maybe.  :(
