Debunking the myth of the conservative boycott of Mitt Romney

Since the 2012 election, many have believed that Mitt Romney lost the election because many Republicans, turned off by Romney’s status as a “Republican in name only,” stayed home and didn’t vote. As the theory goes, the Republicans could have won the election if only they had nominated a candidate who was more conservative and who would have motivated the Republican base to turn out. Was there really a conservative boycott of Mitt Romney? The answer to the missing Republicans of 2012 can be found in exit polls and vote tallies.

 

The first thing to note is that Mitt Romney got more votes than John McCain did in 2008. The Federal Election Commission’s official tallies for 2008 show that McCain received 59,948,323 votes. The official 2012 results from the FEC show that Mitt Romney received 60,933,500 votes. Romney received almost a million votes more than McCain.

Priorities Amiss for the Man Who Would Be King

ebola coverPoint blank…our troops are needed to protect our unsecured borders and our troops might soon be sent back to Iraq to prevent those wanting to kill us all from doing so…but what does Obama have planned for our troops…he’s sending 3000 of our bravest over to Liberia to try and help stop the spread of Ebola. That’s 3000 American lives Obama is willing to put at risk of directly contracting one of the most deadly diseases known to man, as well as opening up the possibility of 3000 Americans becoming ‘carriers’ of said disease…’carriers’ who then infect others… and so on down the line.

Another calculatingly devious move by the man whose goal it is to bring down America any way he can…and this time it’s by ‘culling the herd’ if you will courtesy of a sinister little nasty called Ebola. Continue reading

ISIS and Islam…One and the Same

quran1 coverWhile Obama continues pushing Congress to approve a $500 million arms package for the Syrian opposition…as in the anything but ‘moderate’ Free Syrian Army who continues to have ties to both ISIS and al-Qaeda…Secretary of State John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry was in Paris trying to finalize a strategy against ISIS. And while NO Arab country in attendance would commit to participating in air strikes against Syria, Kerry claims he has some Arab countries on board to participate in air strikes against ISIS in Iraq…but he nor Obama will name those nations ‘supposedly’ on board until later this week.

Hmmm…red flags must be raised when you can’t name those ‘supposedly’ allied with you…kind of makes you wonder who Obama and Kerry think they’re fooling as many of the Arab countries at this strategy meeting actually funded ISIS in the past…and some still do to one degree or another. And when you add in that Iraq’s (ceremonial) Kurdish President Fouad Massoum does NOT want Egypt, the UAE, or Saudi Arabia to participate in any air strikes at all, you have to wonder just who the enemy really is and who in the Arab world is actually against the enemy and who is with the enemy.

Acts of Pure Evil vs. NO Strategy at All

evil final coverSura 47:4…“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…”

We’re now six days out from a speech of NOTHING but placating words…words that have NOT yet been backed-up by actions. Six days out and NO sense of urgency in attacking ISIS in Syria…NO sense of urgency in attacking ISIS in Iraq. Six days out and Barack HUSSEIN Obama still will NOT call ISIS what they are…an islamist…YES islamist…terrorist group of murderous savages out to kill us all. Six days out and the word ‘war’ has NOT yet crossed the lips of the man who fears a vote of war in America’s halls of Congress…fears that word as November looms large.

And now a third westerner has been beheaded by ISIS…this time British humanitarian aid worker David Haines…another death that can be laid at the feet of the man who for all intents and purposes has done NOTHING of substance beyond spewing ‘political promises’…promises made to try and save his miserable legacy. Placating words of a ‘NO strategy’ strategy cobbled out to try and stop numbers in free-fall…numbers that show that Americans have NO confidence in him or his policies…numbers that show the rest of the world is laughing at him…is laughing at our beloved America… as they now see Vladimir Putin as the world’s top dog.

War…America is Indeed at War

war cover boots on the ground“War is the wrong terminology.”

– Secretary of State John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry trying to claim that America is NOT at war with ISIS

WAR…guess Kerry just does NOT know what constitutes war…or just does NOT want to accept the fact that once again America is at war…this time being dragged into war by a president who fears declaring war for political reasons alone and who has NO idea or desire to fight a war so that America wins.

And Kerry’s cluelessness as to what is war could easily be solved if he went to a dictionary and looked it up for if he did he’d find that war is simply any conflict carried on by force of arms between nations or between parties within a nation whether it be by land, sea, or air…as in a state or period of armed hostility or active military operations. And war…albeit a very limited and targeted war…is exactly what Barack HUSSEIN Obama initiated when he ordered the first bomb to be dropped on ISIS. (article continues below video) Continue reading

A new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News released on Tuesday shows that a majority of voters consider Barack Obama a failure as president. Fifty-two percent of registered voters say that the Obama Administration has been a failure while only 42 percent call it a success.

The poll also found that voters disapprove of Obama’s handling of a variety of issues by strong margins. Obama’s overall approval as president and his handling of the economy were both at 41 percent. Approval for international affairs and the handling of the health law was at 38 percent. Obama’s handling of immigration had the approval of only 31 percent.

Decisions Based on Politics Alone


immigration reform cover“This problem with unaccompanied children that we saw a couple weeks ago, where you had, from Central America, a surge of kids who were showing up at the border, got a lot of attention.”

– Barack HUSSEIN Obama speaking to NBC’s Chuck Todd

This past Friday, Saudi’s King Abdullah gave a news conference to lay out his plans for a 560 mile fence along his country’s northern border…a fence to help secure the kingdom’s desert frontiers from what he called “infiltrators and smugglers.”

A day later, Barack HUSSEIN Obama went on television to read off his teleprompter for the God-only-knows how many hundredth time to basically say… without actually saying the words…that he indeed was going to violate the law of our Constitution yet again with another one of his infamous executive orders, but that he would do so only AFTER the November election when it would have NO consequences for him politically.

There is a bright side to Tea Party losses

As the 2014 primary election season draws to a close, Republican voters have rejected the vast majority of Tea Party candidates in favor of incumbent Republicans. In spite of much ballyhooed and hard fought challenges against Republican congressmen, only one prominent Republican, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) was defeated by a Tea Party challenger, Dave Brat, who was not funded or backed by national Tea Party groups. The Tea Party losses may actually be a good thing for the Republican Party as a whole and could make a Republican Senate majority more likely.

As noted before in Examiner, most Republican officeholders are real conservatives. Charges that they are “RINOs” or “closet liberals” do not stand up to the scrutiny of their voting records. Nevertheless, Tea Party challengers leveled these and other charges against Republican incumbents in their campaign attacks from the right.

Say what? Obama claims Republicans are running the ‘okie-doke’ on America

okiedokeI don’t know what an “okie-doke” is, or how someone “runs” one, but Barack Obama has claimed that Republicans are “running an okie-doke” on America.

Check out the video below, courtesy of Weasel Zippers, and see if you can figure it out.

By the way, he’s acting as though Republicans are in control of government, which they’re not… But don’t expect the low-infos to understand that…

Perry indictment part of ongoing harassment of conservatives

Travis Co. Sheriff

Travis Co. Sheriff

The news of the indictment against Texas Governor Rick Perry on charges of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public official surprised the country and shook up the early presidential race for 2016. Debate ranged from how the charges would affect Perry’s chances at winning the Republican nomination and the White House to whether Perry would be convicted. A surprising number of liberals and Democrats have broken ranks to defend what many call an unconstitutional attempt to criminalize politics as usual. This is not the first time in recent memory that prosecutors have pressed charges against Republicans on dubious grounds. This harassment of conservatives is likely to worsen in the absence of penalties for malicious prosecution.

In Texas, the Travis County DA office has prosecuted other high profile Republicans. In 1993, Rosemary Lemberg’s predecessor, Ronnie Earle, indicted newly elected U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison on charges of misusing her previous office of state treasurer according to National Review. Hutchison was originally elected in a special election and faced the prospect of running for reelection in 1994 with the indictment hanging over her head. She pressed for a quick resolution and, when the case went to trial, Earle told the court that he could not proceed without the admission of records seized from Hutchison’s office without a search warrant. The judge promptly ordered the jury to return a verdict of not guilty.
