There IS Room in the Conservative Tent

Monday, March 10th, 2014

In last Friday’s “Fume,” I went off on group of Rutgers University “professors” who are circulating a petition to disinvite Condi Rice from their graduation program this year.

In that segment of the “Friday Fume,” I placed her accomplishments in a nutshell and, it takes a BIG shell to hold them all.

I said it then and I’ll say it again…Condi Rice, based on her intelligence, her drive, her steadfast refusal to be held back by preconceptions of her race or her gender may well be THE most accomplished woman in the HISTORY of the United States and, arguably, she is more accomplished than PERSON, man OR woman, than any other in our history.

Here’s what I DIDN’T say in that piece last Friday because, it’s not funny…It’s a point so serious, it deserves separation from the snarky musings of the “Fume.”

I suspect, that should you boil it all down, the REAL reason those “professors” at Rutgers don’t want Rice to speak at this year’s commencement has nothing whatsoever to do with her support for the war in Iraq.

Nothing at all.

It does, however, in my opinion, have everything to do with the color of her politics.

Allow me to explain.

Over the weekend, Dr. Ben Carson spoke at CPAC and, while his tearing down of the walls of political correctness drew a standing ovation at the conference, it drew unveiled racial hatred from liberals.

Michelle Malkin, a liberal nightmare in her own right, provides an invaluable service to those who seek the truth….

Don’t Waste the Tea Party Mandate

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

There WAS a mandate won in this election and it belongs, I believe, to the Tea Party but we’re in danger of drowning it out.

Yesterday was interesting for us on social media.

While most either received our article enthusiastically,there were some just too deflated to muster up the fighting spirit.

There were however, a handful of “also ran” supporters who were just hopping mad.

At me…

For supporting not their particular candidate.

Here’s a prime example:

Samm Tittle ANOTHER BSer. YOUR NAME IS ON OUR SWEAT BOARD RIGHT THIS MINUTE. BELIEVE THE ONLY WOMAN HISPANIC EVANGELICAL W/TIES TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY REACHED OUT TO YOU AND YOU COULD HAVE REALIZED HER STRENGTH TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TODAY. NO .. YOU ARE STUCK WITH THIS PRESIDENT DESTROYER AND YOU WANT US TO READ YOUR WHAT? THE ONLY PATRIOT THAT WAS RUNNING IN THE RACE FOR REAL WAS AND IS SAMM TITTLE. LEAVING SO I WON’T SAY MEAN THINGS TO YOU. YOU MIGHT HAVE HAD THE RIGHT INTENTION BUT YOU BLEW IT TOO.

Craig Andresen As I told you in our phone conversation Samm…Run for Congress. Your idesa are sound but your presidential campaign just wasn’t national enough. You can still help turn this country around from congress and I urge you to do so.

A Question for the Anybody But Mitt Crowd

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Over a considerable amount of time and through the ability to do copious amounts of research, I have become reasonably good at figuring out political quandaries.

I don’t always get it exactly right but, I honestly wish I weren’t right as often as I am.

Finding the answers to questions regarding political ideology, political history, how dots are connected and the end games of certain politicians have become a passion.

I’d like to think I’ve become pretty good at it.

Currently, however, the answer to a most perplexing political question eludes me.

I’m asking for your help.

There is no cash prize involved, like the sum given to the brilliant mind which created the $50.00 light bulb but rest assured, you’ll have my unending gratitude.

Please, somebody…Explain to me exactly how…

Splitting the 2012 presidential vote between Romney, Gingrich, Paul, Cain, Palin, Johnson, Dummett, Tittle and any other number of known or unknown candidates of personal choice will defeat Obama.

Conservatives agree, after all, that Obama needs to be defeated and that if he isn’t, the situation is dire.

In that, at least, there IS agreement.

Thus, the quandary…

Rocking the Boat or the Voice of Realism?

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Here’s the deal. Straight forward and in plain talk. I have never been accused of being politically correct and that’s not likely to change today.

What I’m about to say will probably set a few darn good conservatives ablaze but…So be it.

It will also send the Ronulans into orbit.

As we close in on the Iowa Caucus and other important early state primaries, I am seeing and hearing more and more of the “Only MY candidate can…” and My candidate is the ONLY one who will…”

Crap.

ANY of the GOP candidates CAN and WILL do this and that. Some may do one thing better or faster than another and another may do something else faster and better but ALL of them have the ABILITY to do…whatever.

One Facebook friend, a solid conservative, responded to a post yesterday with this:

And the Cain Endorsement Goes TO…

Monday, December 5th, 2011

As Herman Cain “suspended” his campaign on Saturday, he promised that soon, he would endorse a candidate and in my article, “CAIN SUSPENDS CAMPAIGN,” I suggested he make that endorsement as soon as possible.

Now, we learn that Mr. Cain will, TODAY, make his endorsement.

It WILL be Newt Gingrich.

This will no doubt please some and anger others, but Newt will receive the Cain Endorsement later this morning.

Here’s the conundrum for some Cain supporters.

Cain has been called the “Ultimate Outsider” and many of his most ardent supporters have clung to him because of his Tea Party stance. Now, Mr. Cain will endorse the man many feel is the “Ultimate Insider” Newt Gingrich.

While polls over the last week have shown that should Cain bow out of the race, most of his support would go to Gingrich with some falling to Romney or Paul, and I speculated that Gingrich would receive the Cain endorsement, it is yet to be seen just how MUCH of Cain’s support will fall to Newt in reality.

CAIN SUSPENDS CAMPAIGN

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

Today, as I predicted last Wednesday, November 30th,in an article titled “Cain Train Derailed” – Herman Cain has bowed out of the 2012 presidential campaign. In a speech today from Atlanta, Cain cited the emotional toll taken on his family as one of the factors in his decision.

Cain, in “suspending” his campaign, did so in what can only be described as the best possible way given the circumstances. He has moved on to plan B.

This new Cain plan will keep his name and his 9-9-9 plan in the public eye and will work, as he says, toward the day when someone from outside the beltway, completely outside the beltway, can and will become the president.

Cain called the allegations which many see as the direct cause of the derailment of the Cain train, false and unproven but hurtful. Hurtful to his wife, hurtful to his family, hurtful to him and hurtful to his supporters.

The Cain Train Derailed

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Herman Cain will bow out of the 2012 presidential campaign.

That is my opinion and one that I believe will, sooner rather than later, become a reality.

Right now, Cain is engaged in an “Assessment” of his campaign following more allegations of inappropriate behavior. This time, it’s not sexual harassment…This time, it’s an alleged affair that supposedly lasted some 13 years.

My opinion will, no doubt, inflame Cain’s most ardent followers but it’s time to face reality.

At worst, Cain had a 13 year affair with Ginger White and while that is yet to be proven, at least as far as THIS allegation, that would be the worst case scenario. If it proves to be true…IF it proves to be true, it would add an air of validity to other allegations and would be something from which Cain could not resurrect himself.

Cain Accuser CLEARLY Not Acting Like an ASSAULT Victim

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Yesterday, I said I smelled a skunk. If you missed that article, you can read it by clicking here. I was referring to the “case” of Sharon Bialek, the woman who stepped forward yesterday with her celebrity-chasing, self-promoting attorney, Gloria Allred, to level accusations of sexual harassment against Herman Cain.

According to Bialek, what happened was not at all sexual harassment, it was sexual assault.

Bialek claimed that Cain reached under her skirt, tried to touch her genitals and pulled her head towards his crotch.

I said I smelled a skunk because she had to READ a first person account of the alleged event, she stammered her way through it, awkwardly pause to flip pages, stumbled through words and sentences and even had to read the portion of why, some 14 years later, she decided to come forward.

Newest Cain Accuser is NOT Passing the Smell Test

Monday, November 7th, 2011

I smell a skunk. I will admit I’m not always right – but, I smell a skunk. There is something wrong with the woman who was trotted out to face TV cameras this morning by Gloria Allred, as the 4th woman to level accusations against Herman Cain.

Yep, I smell a skunk.

Forget for a moment that Allred is a shameless self promoter and an attorney who has chased more celebrity cases than the paparazzi. Just forget that for a moment.

Forget also, just for a moment that Allred did this in the 2010 California election but with an illegal alien.

I smell a skunk.

Focus on THIS woman, Sharon Bialek, and on her press conference.

Perry Gives the Standard Response of a 6-Year Old

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Yesterday, it came across GretaWire that the source, or at the very least, A source of the Herman Cain sexual harassment story over the weekend was Chris Wilson, a supporter of and pollster for Rick Perry – and that fact was revealed by Politico, the site that broke the Cain piece to start with.

I had mentioned earlier in the day yesterday in my piece, The Cain Scandal -Problematic but Not Yet Dire, “While this looks, for all the world, to be a bit of dirt dug up by a fellow GOP candidate, I’ll guess Perry as he’s slipping fast, and may be a lot of nothing, it will pale in comparison to the attacks which will come from the liberal machine should Cain actually garner the nomination; and if Cain, with 10 days advanced warning on this wasn’t prepared, some changes must be made and be made quickly.”

After the GretaWire piece broke yesterday in my article, Perry Dug the Dirt on Cain and Shoots Himself in the Foot I stated, “When I watched Perry over the weekend being so giddy in a speech, it was clear he knew something the rest of us didn’t and it was his jabbing at Cain during that speech which tipped me off.”
