This Just In...

The stakes are huge. The left wing/terrorist alliance has been in full swing since late 2002. It is our job to make sure the left wingers in the alliance are not in the Republican Party.

Peggy Noonan Gets It

Posted today:
One is that it's clear now to everyone in the Republican Party that Mr. Bush has changed the modern governing definition of "conservative."

He did this without asking. He did it even without explaining. He didn't go to the people whose loyalty and support raised him high and say, "This is what I'm doing, this is why I'm changing things, here's my thinking, here are the implications." The cynics around him likely thought this a good thing. To explain is to make things clearer, or at least to try, and they probably didn't want it clear. They had the best of both worlds, a conservative reputation and a liberal reality.

And Republicans, most of whom are conservative in at least general ways, and who endure the disadvantages of being conservative because they actually believe in ideas, in philosophy, in an understanding of the relation of man and the state, are still somewhat concussed. The conservative tradition on foreign affairs is prudent realism; the conservative position on borders is that they must be governed; the conservative position on high spending is that it is obnoxious and generationally irresponsible. Etc.

As the loyal Rush Limbaugh has stated on several occasions, "Bush is not a conservative." His massive growth of the government, free-for-all borders, and nation-building make him a dangerous RINO who must be stopped at all costs.

The Stakes. Thank You RINOs

Top 10 Worst Democrat House Chairmen in Waiting

Ranked by the editors of HUMAN EVENTS.
If Democrats are successful in taking over the House this November, congressional committees would lurch to the left with Democrat majorities and far-left chairmen. Here are the 10 House members who would inflict the most liberal damage.

10. Rep. Barney Frank (Mass.) – Financial Services
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 4%
Ultra-leftist and ethically troubled Frank (his boyfriend was found to be running a male prostitution ring out of the congressman’s apartment) has a record of heavy class-warfare rhetoric and of supporting policies dangerous for a leader of the Financial Services Committee.

9. Rep. George Miller (Calif.) – Education and Workforce
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 5%
A California leftist who helped create the No Child Left Behind Act, Miller would support the bill only if it didn’t include vouchers. He is a constant critic of Bush for not spending more on schools, despite the fact that federal education spending has more than doubled since.

8. Rep. Bennie Thompson (Miss.) – Homeland Security
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 10%
Thompson has helped to keep the U.S. dependent on foreign oil by opposing drilling in ANWR and the easing of rules for building new refineries. He also voted against the Patriot Act and the House border-security bill.

7. Rep. Alcee Hastings (Fla.) – Intelligence
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 6%
Would-be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) would likely snub Intelligence ranking member Jane Harman (Calif.) and appoint Hastings, a former federal district court judge who was impeached and removed from the bench by Congress for corruption and perjury.

6. Rep. Tom Lantos (Calif.) – International Relations
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 8%
During the Reagan Administration, Lantos opposed funding for the Contras and pushed for a nuclear freeze. He is a supporter of the International Criminal Court and opposed President Bush’s abrogation of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty.

5. Rep. John Dingell (Mich.) – Energy and Commerce
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 12%
Dingell’s record of opposing drilling in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and off the coasts of the U.S. and his support for higher CAFE standards would make him a dangerous anti-energy Energy chairman.

4. Rep. David Obey (Wis.) – Appropriations
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 10%
A classic big-spending Democrat, Obey opposed an attempt to cut $58 billion in mandatory spending and last year’s final budget that held discretionary spending to $843 billion and made room for $70 billion in tax cuts. He supports using tax dollars to pay for congressional campaigns.

3. Rep. Charlie Rangel (N.Y.) – Ways and Means
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 4%
Rangel has opposed income-tax cuts since he was elected in 1970, including the historic Reagan cuts of 1981 and each of the Bush tax cuts. He supported Clinton’s record tax increase and would likely push for higher taxes and allow the Bush cuts to expire.

2. Rep. Henry Waxman (Calif.) – Government Reform
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 5%
A far-left Hollywood Democrat, Waxman has demanded multiple investigations of the Bush Administration and would lead them as chairman (though he opposed a probe of former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger for stealing classified documents).

1. Rep. John Conyers (Mich.) – Judiciary
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 5%
Conyers has already called for an impeachment investigation of President Bush, and his staff produced a report outlining charges that “clearly rise to the level of impeachment.” With a Chairman Conyers, watch for Bush to face an impeachment inquiry.

Top 10 Worst Democrat Senate Chairmen in Waiting

Ranked by the editors of HUMAN EVENTS.

If Democrats are successful in taking over the Senate this November, congressional committees would lurch to the left with Democrat majorities and far-left chairmen. Here are the 10 senators who would inflict the most liberal damage.

10. Sen. Jeff Bingaman (N.M.) – Energy and Natural Resources
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 13%

The quiet Sen. Bingaman, who is consistently wrong on issues ranging from drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to Kyoto Protocol climate-change requirements, would be dangerous for American energy policy.

9. Sen. Kent Conrad (N.D.) – Budget
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 20%

One of the Senate’s biggest class-warfare bloviators, Conrad has consistently argued against tax cuts and was a leading opponent of the early Bush budgets that provided tax relief for American families.

8. Sen. John Kerry (Mass.) – Small Business and Entrepreneurship
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 5%

Kerry voted against the Bush tax cuts, opposes repealing the Death Tax and supports hiking the minimum wage. His chairmanship would be a disaster for America’s small businesses.

7. Sen. Jay Rockefeller (W.Va) – Intelligence
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 10%

Rockefeller is demanding a full-scale investigation of how America was “lied into” the war in Iraq and has been a vocal opponent of the NSA’s surveillance of international phone calls.

6. Sen. Joe Biden (Del.) – Foreign Relations
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 14%

Biden, a self-absorbed know-it-all on every international issue, has been one of the most outspoken critics of UN Ambassador John Bolton and a repeated advocate of appeasing America’s enemies.

5. Sen. Carl Levin (Mich.) – Armed Services
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 7%

Levin, who supported Clinton’s Kosovo raids but opposed the Iraq War, has repeatedly accused the Bush Administration of misleading the U.S. into war. He has been a long-time opponent of Missile Defense.

4. Sen. Barbara Boxer (Calif.) – Environment and Public Works
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 3%

A global-warming alarmist and Kyoto Protocol supporter, the ultra-liberal Boxer is sure to advocate a far-left environmentalist agenda for this committee.

3. Sen. Ted Kennedy (Mass.) – Health, Educations, Labor and Pensions
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 3%

Liberal lion Kennedy would use the leadership post on the HELP Committee to push his leftist social ideas on such issues as stem-cell research, minimum wage and the federal role in education.

2. Sen. Robert Byrd (W.Va.) – Appropriations
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 30%

Byrd is the Senate’s most senior member and the king of pork. He has never seen a tax dollar he couldn’t spend and would likely lead the way to even larger federal deficits.

1. Sen. Pat Leahy (Vt.) – Judiciary
Lifetime American Conservative Union Rating: 6%

A leading obstructionist of President Bush’s judicial nominees, Leahy and committee Democrats would see to it that no conservative nominee to the Supreme Court or other vital post on the federal bench would be confirmed.

Chris Shays- When Liberals Attack

From Westportnow.com

The New York Times, which two years ago endorsed incumbent Republican Rep. Christopher Shays for re-election in Connecticut’s 4th Congressional District over Democratic challenger Diane Farrell, a former Westport first selectwoman, today endorsed Farrell in November’s re-match.

Yes, the Treason Times after endorsing him against the same opponent two years ago, smells blood in the water and is sacrificing one of their useful tools because they sense a real chance at a Dem takeover. Why gnaw at the GOP from within when you can throw them out of power? This should be yet another lesson to any "new tone" RINO. You will have no support in the end.

David Brooks on Thinning the Herd

David Brooks, the token conservative at the New York Times has written eloquently on why he thinks we need RINOs in the party.

With respect to a rhetorical question posed by Rush Limbaugh:
Why have 55 Republican senators? Why not 25? Why not 15 brave and true? Throw in a few dozen pure-minded Republican House members and you could hold the next Republican convention in a living room.

We only need 40 "brave and true" Republicans in the Senate who could block almost anything. If they are really brave and true, they would not back down. Gridlock is good compared to the total meltdown we have now with new tone Republicans running everything.

He also gives props to his paper, The Treason Times:
As insular Democrats know little about what life is like in flyover country, so insular Republicans know little about how people think in the suburban Northeast, where blue New York Times delivery bags dot the driveways each morn.

The stock price above closely follows their circulation. Is this who Brooks and the RINOs want to bet the future on? It is better to have a principled obstructionist minority than what is there now. There should be a glut of empty blue bags on the market soon.

Randy Graf Needs Your Help

Randy Graf was an early victim this year of Bush-Rove interfering in the GOP primary process in the Arizona 8th House District. Because he is for border security, his RINO opponent received massive financial aid from the National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee. He won the primary in spite of the meddling. You can support him directly here. Never give money directly to the Party as it has a good chance of undermining conservative government these days.

Could This Cost Santorum his Seat?

Is it possible that Rick Santorum's active campaigning against
fellow conservative Toomey in the Specter primary two years ago will be a factor in his possible loss? Casey is drawing 27% of the conservative vote. Rick is a principled guy, but supporting RINOs always ends up biting you. Of course, Specter went out of his way to return the favor by continously giving the conservative base the finger after his re-election in 2004.

Dick Armey Talks

Although dating back to mid-September, This has been on precious few right wing sites. Former Republican Majority Leader in the House, Dick Armey calls James Dobson, i.e. Christan conservatives, a "gang of thugs" and "real nasty bullies." Read this for a fuller treatment of his direction for the GOP. Is Armey's anger misdirected?

Madame Speaker?

Do we really want this Kafkesque figure as Speaker of the House? These are the stakes in two weeks. Do we risk throwing out the only check on Bush's amnesty program for illegal immigrants? Then again, it took Billy Jeff Clinton to usher in a Republican Congress that made great conservative strides in the very first year. But look at them now. With no apparent conservative running for President in '08, is this the end of the Reagan revolution?

Welcome to Rino Alert

This is a place for conservative Republicans to vent so we are never in the same position two weeks before an election as we are today. Effective change in the Party depends on throwing out the old guard where the cesspool of Washington has become a hot tub. We will bring you new stories so change can be affected in the primary before it is too late. Most of all, we need to laugh!
