Everybody needs to watch that. A lot of good stuff to come out of that convocation. Click through it.
Any serious attempt by the GOP to win black votes won’t involve Republicans copycatting liberal policies. It will require going over the heads of the black and white liberal slanderers to offer a sincere alternative to failed liberal policies on schools, poverty, crime, etc. The more effective that effort, the more the GOP will be called racist.
When Romney, whose father marched with Martin Luther King Jr., spoke to the NAACP, Michael Tomasky of the Daily Beast dubbed him a “race-mongering pyromaniac,” primarily for using the term “Obamacare” — a term Barack Obama used himself.
Just imagine the desperate, pathetic attacks in store for a more effective Republican.
When Conservatives ever ‘get real and get serious’ they will have to build their own media networks, paper and broadcast as well as internet in order to get the truth across. No more pandering to the liberal press or the political (Republican and Democrat) establishment.
Boehner and the RNC and the likes of Drudge and Coulter are disgusting and far from conservative.

WEST: Counting Blessings Despite Election Bruises
Land of the Free Will Endure
By Rep. Allen B. West, Nov 22, 2012
“And why do I say the Obama Administration should grow up? Because the Obama Administration is trying to punish Fox for trying to get the facts from the Administration (do I need to remind anyone that 4 Americans were murdered?) The Administration in what looks like a coordinated effort is denying Fox access to information that they are handing out to other news organizations. Why exclude Fox? That is simple – to punish — to try to teach us a lesson not to pry, not to look further for facts.”
And not for the first time, either. Compared to Obama, Nixon was a civil libertarian paragon.
You Go Greta!
President George Washington’s first Thanksgiving Proclamation, October 3, 1789
By the PRESIDENT of the United States Of America
WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favour; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLICK THANKSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:” NOW THEREFORE, I do recommend and assign THURSDAY, the TWENTY-SIXTH DAY of NOVEMBER next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed;– for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish Constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted;– for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge;– and, in general, for all the great and various favours which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions;– to enable us all, whether in publick or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us); and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
GIVEN under my hand, at the city of New-York, the third day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.

Cooperate Or Die
Very good analysis via http://www.strategypage.com .
The way situations like this work, Hamas plays the victim card as
vigorously as it can until its foreign backers (Russia, China, and
most Moslem countries) can muster enough pressure (via the UN) to
coerce the U.S. into forcing Israel to accept a ceasefire. But this
time that will only reduce the attacks. Israel is at war with the
Hamas leadership and it’s unlikely that will end until Hamas is a
headless mess. Israel hopes to eventually play the savior and
king-maker in Gaza and get a more moderate government there. Many
Palestinians agree with that scenario but cannot admit it openly
without risking death.
A Monday evening Investor’s Business Daily editorial noted that this practice is more than likely illegal, because “Federal law prohibits the government from using private emails for official communications unless they are appropriately stored and can be tracked” — something which can hardly be done if non-flagged Jackson accounts are under names like “Richard Windsor.”
But you won’t have heard a word about this from any Mushroom Media outlet.
What is Jackson hiding?

Obama Administration is Blocking FoxNews from its News Drops

Back in mid-June, during the great Paris weapons show, the Rafael pavilion was absolutely the busiest around, and everybody wanted to look at the new, exciting, Iron Dome system, the greatest achievement in rocket defense ever. But by the end of the show, Rafael hadn’t made a single sale. The Arrow sold well, other systems did great – Iron Dome wasn’t moving. So they contacted their big clients, the serious ones, and asked what gives. And those clients told them no one except Israel has any use for these things. Because in any normal, sane country, if some hooligans were to start targeting civilians with rockets – the army would go and kill them.
The author argues that the Iron Dome (what my kids used to call my head) is actually a moral mistake. I have to agree.
At the LATimes (?!!!) Charlotte Allen suggests Palin for 2016, with a poll.

Have they asked Barrackah? ‘Cause we KNOW he knows NOTHING about much of anything. It would at least be comedy relief…

I hope for an America where no president, no public official, no individual will ever be deemed a greater or lesser American because of religious doubt — or religious belief.
Goes right along with some of what I suggested last week. CIA/Military as an institution is taking the perception hit.
Now give this a read. I found it interesting that the same sorts of charges can be leveled at Obama but we wont read those at the Times. The General suffers from too much vanity they suggest pointedly while his boss, The Great American Pharoah is thought of as a man of the people
The vanishing talking points in the CIA memos.
Personally I think the Rice critics are chasing the wrong target. For me the more obvious question might be..how can the administration even for a few hours deny AQ involvement with Libya after seeing the AQ flag raised at out Egyptian Embassy? Um. Maybe that was a tip off for what followed in Libya?
Im beginning to think the youtube video was a “planted” story with the hope it would be adopted by various protestors.
Something similar perhaps to how objections to parts of Obamacare was and became a “war on women”
Plant the narrative and perhaps it will stick.
Good data on the 2012 election is still hard to find, and some of what we THINK is wrong…
According to this writer, Romney won Cuban-Americans by nearly 60%, and there are indications that young CAs are MORE conservative than their parents.
What Im having difficulty finding is accurate info as well.
Try and find a simple list of Republican Governors.
I look at wiki..old info. Even the Republican Governor’s Association has stale info.
You would think it should be easy to constructa simple chart by state where the Governor, and State Houses controlled by republicans is available.
ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan described Israel on Monday as a “terrorist state” in carrying out its bombardment of Gaza, underlining hostility for Ankara’s former ally since relations between them collapsed in 2010.
His comments came after nearly a week of Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel and Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip. An Israeli missile killed at least 11 Palestinian civilians including four children in Gaza on Sunday.
“Those who associate Islam with terrorism close their eyes in the face of mass killing of Muslims, turn their heads from the massacre of children in Gaza,” Erdogan told a conference of the Eurasian Islamic Council in Istanbul.
“For this reason, I say that Israel is a terrorist state, and its acts are terrorist acts,” he said.

For the last several years, union bosses have been fighting to effectively eliminate workers’ right to vote through secret-ballot elections on whether or not to become unionized. Yet, with 6700 members’ jobs about to be wiped out, when push came to shove last week—knowing how unions can manipulate other methods of voting—the Teamsters called for the bakers’ union to hold a secret-ballot vote to let members determine whether or not to continue the strike that would close Hostess.
See? It is different when they do it.

“…the incoming chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus – Rep. Marcia Fudge, a Democrat from Cleveland – accused Sen. John McCain of “sexism and racism” for criticizing UN Ambassador Susan Rice for going on five Sunday talk shows and claiming the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was a spontaneous reaction to a video posted on YouTube.”

Saturday, November 17, 2012You Ask…Just How Bad Could A Few Decades Of Uninterupted Democrat Leadership Be ?
Well we do have plenty of real world examples of just how truly evil and foul a few short years of unbridled democrat leadership can be, all one has to do is look. Detroit, Camden , Flint, Gary, Washington D.C., Newark, Harrisburg, New Orleans, St Louis, East St Louis, Baltimore, Chicago, Scranton, Wilkes Barre. All these places have been run by democrats for years, some have never had a Republican Mayor and it shows. But now they are destroying entire states with their idiocy and what a state to destroy …the late great state of California. It boggles the mind to think that anyone could ruin a state that has been so blessed with gentle weather….fertile land … abundant energy resources and access to free and easy trade and yet they have done just that and in just a few short years.
Democrats are like a slow moving plague of locusts, before their passing the landscape is lush, green, fertile and productive and then they slowly move in and in their passing they leave death, poverty and misery and what I find most mind boggling is that the people see it happen, they understand what is happening, they know who the culprits are and they are given the opportunity every few years to rid themselves of these ticks and yet they inevitability decide to keep them.
Some of you may think that enough may come to their senses to save the state, well put that misplaced thought to rest they just gave the democrats super majorities in Both Cal houses.That means the Republicans aren’t even a speed bump anymore and to add insult to injury the voters just approved a ballot measure that now gives Cal the highest state income taxes in the nation and they failed to approve a measure which would have restricted the public service unions ability to pick the pockets of the tax payers. Now its just time, space and speed as to how big the hole is going to be as all the pieces are in place for a truly spectacular fail. It is all dependent on how long the state can afford to feed the ticks which hang from its flanks in ever increasing numbers
We all know O gamed his way legal and otherwise to the top, but it could be true per http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/ that a deal was struck thirty years ago? Oh great legal sage, help us in the quest for why the RNC rolls over so easily? Is it true?
“…Israel’s Hebrew-language newspapers are all calling the new operation “Pillar of Cloud” (or so Gawker’s resident Hebrew speaker and Israeli native, Neetzan Zimmerman, tells me.) And that’s how the name of the operation first propagated in the America press. Here is the IDF’s official Hebrew Twitter feed, in answer to a question about the operation’s name, answering “Pillar of Cloud” about 90 minutes ago (thanks again to Neetzan for the translation):

Here’s what “Pillar of Cloud” means: According to the Bible, during the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt, God took the form of a pillar of cloud during the day and a pillar of fire at night, in order to light their way and to frighten the Egyptian army…”
As the ongoing Gaza Strip conflict heated up this week, neighboring countries began to take sides—and some on Friday threw their support to Hamas. Especially important for Gaza occupiers is the backing of Egypt, Tunisia, and Turkey, all U.S. allies with democratically-elected governments. Not only does this represent a shift in the Middle East overall, where many leaders were once wary of Hamas’ hardline Islamist ideology, but the group’s new friends will help to give it a stronger reputation internationally. What that reputation will be has yet to be determined.

SmartPower(tm). Yeah. Super.
Lyin’ Lizzie throws down the gauntlet.
Ron Paul is a crank and a false-flag operator, but he does have some worthwhile insights.
WHEN THE NERDS GO MARCHING IN: How a dream team of engineers from Facebook, Twitter, and Google built the software that drove Barak Obama’s reelection. Interesting story. I wonder if this will hurt their brands among people on the right?
I wonder, too. It SHOULD hurt their brands, but will it?
Well, the first step should be to spread this article far and wide, to all corners of the nation.
Then, the Tea Party and others should meet, discuss and decide what to do with this info. Then, execute.
It is becoming plenty obvious that these “Nerds” are now becoming enemies of Freedom and Free Enterprise. The fact that they are so willing to put all of their powers to advance the cause of Marxism, which has caused more suffering, pain and death than anything else in the 20th century, should tell you a lot about them.
They’re bringing “1984” to its fulfillment.
Shocking that they had to reverse their decision:
Michigan State Reverses Decision Rejecting Free-Market Scholar’s Speech
It appears we need to starve the tumor that is leftist higher education. People need to rethink what does a college degree offer these days? As we know its pure aggrandizing leftist beliefs passed as higher thinking.
Richard Windsor…?!?!? Why isn’t this fraud?
This article needs a total confirmation… or a total debunking.
How in HELL could the RNC have ever agreed to such an outrage? And under The Gipper’s nose, no less!
This definitely calls for confirmation or debunking. If this is true, then it is extremely disturbing, and it MUST guarantee the total dismantling of the RNC.
Soo… Holder admits he kept the Big O in the dark…!?!?
But how does that excuse his DUTY to brief Congress…???
Holder needs to be impeached.
Preview of obama 2.0
obama and his union goons with their under funded pensions are coming for your 401K’s and IRA’s.
“A representative of the liberal Pension Rights Center, Rebecca Davis, testified that the government needs to get involved because 401k plans and IRAs are unfair to poor people. She demanded the Obama administration set up a “government-sponsored program administered by the PBGC (the governments’ Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation).” ”
So working hard and saving money is unfair to people that do not want to work and want as much as possible for free?!?!? This will be the theme to obama 2.0.
Yesterday the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ruled 8–7 that it was unconstitutional for the people of Michigan to ban preferences and discrimination based on race, ethnicity, and sex in state and local government contracting, employment, and education (including public universities). That’s right, folks, you can’t make this sort of thing up: The judges on that circuit have determined that it is a denial of the “equal protection of the laws” to ban preferential treatment.
See? You CAN rationalize anything!
Today’s hearings. Im sure we expect some big deal but lets be cautious here
A few Repub’s take issue with Romney’s “Gifts” statements.
I happen to agree. Its the messaging again.
And sure I understand from one perspective we might want to defend him because its “the truth”. For me and obviously a few other Republicans its another example of being somewhat “tone deaf”. Given a political playing field.
His statements arent going to gain voters or influence anyone so politically its pointless unless we like to fight with one another over why he lost the election.
For the record, his remarks were SUPPOSED to be heard ONLY by a very limited cadre of donors, so you might want to put them in that context.
Had he a right to expect the same kind of royalty that journalists do when they discuss their meme de jour…?
It appears all of the votes are to be recounted because of the irregularites found by the auditor, at least 799 vote change; West’s camp says closer to 1000; behind by under 2k now.

I hate to be harsh but Mr Romney? Stop talking
Romney attributes loss to ‘gifts’ Obama gave minorities
Except he’s right. Remember the “Obamaphone” lady?
Of course I agree with him. But by talking about this stuff he knows he will be taken out of context and becomes a carry forward item.
He has plenty of time to reflect on his loss. Why give the left even more talking points?
Again…what Im getting at is the messaging.
It’s never the ‘wrong time’ to speak truth.
Bless your naivete! There are times, places, WAYS and audiences in which it is not wise to tell the truth.
What I said didnt come out correctly. Lemme rephrase.
Right now Romney as a man/person is wrestling with a sense of loss. He lost the would be personality contest.
When people confront loss its often more comfortable to point out failures/reasons that dont involve self.
And its not a smart idea to publically share those early thoughts in a political arena….if for no other reason than why inflict or risk inflicting any further damage to a political party. Why say anything that puts Republicans in a defensive posture over a talking point?
As a comparison think of the Senate races that were risked because republican senators talked morethan needed about abortion. Suddenly it becomes a political “talking point” where none is needed.
Look at memorandum.com. Look at the left and right each attempting to attack and defend what Romney said.
Romney’s observation wasnt so important that it needed a public airing a week after the election is all.
His political career is probably over. I have no compelling reason to defend the guy any longer.
Romney does not need anybody’s opinion on why he lost, simply because it was obvious even to the biggest idiot out there that The One practically BOUGHT the American Electorate and threw America’s future to the dogs.
The One knew he would lose on the things that make the nation run (the economy, jobs, national defense, etc.), simply because poll after pool said so, and unemployment numbers and the confidence index were not going to improve enough.
So he went for the tried, tested and true methods of despots and narcissist creeps everywhere: charm the populace with smiles, good talk, good vibe, and lots of cash and prizes. Free BC pills! Free abortions! Free phones! Free everything – in exchange for your soul.
Romney was going for “the things that really mattered”, and was called a RACIST because of it. He knew that a populace that would sell its soul for free stuff would never vote for someone who would tell them those things called “work ethic”, “family” and “delayed gratification” still meant something in America. “Work ethic” – RACIST! “Delayed gratification” – SEXIST, HOMOPHOBE! “Family” – OPPRESSOR!!!
The qualities that could bring the country back from the brink were summarily REJECTED on November 6. He was just pointing the obvious.
Overt, rampant, despicable VOTER and ELECTION FRAUD were primary factors in this election.
439,000 laid off last week. Just like the MSM kept a macabre running ‘Iraq Death Toll’, we should likewise keep a running ‘Jobs Lost Since Obama Was Reelected’ total.
This is most unfortunate, nobody should be punished with suspension for calling someone ‘angry’.
coming home, to roost…
This is part of the reason I don’t think you cut yourself off from your bad-thinking relatives, friends, co-workers, etc.
You NEED to point out what is happening, and tie it to Obama so they see the cause >>> effect.
The only way the public will get educated
Guys at Zerohedge really teeing off on things
Romney was not a drag on the Republican party. The Republican party was a drag on him. Aaron Blake pointed out in the Washington Post that Romney ran ahead of most of the Republican Senate candidates: He did better than Connie Mack in Florida, George Allen in Virginia, Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin, Denny Rehberg in Montana, Jeff Flake in Arizona, Pete Hoekstra in Michigan, Deb Fischer in Nebraska, Rick Berg in North Dakota, Josh Mandel in Ohio, and of course Todd Akin in Missouri and Richard Mourdock in Indiana. In some cases Romney did a lot better. (He also did slightly better than Ted Cruz in Texas, a race Blake for some reason ignored.)
THAT is certainly something to ponder…
