Yes Mark Virginia was a blowout but let the GOP go if they dont want to go right

I agree with Mark Levin that it’s basic conservative principles that will save the Republican party.  Those basics of economic (like cutting taxes), social (honor certain morals like the traditional family), and national security (including honoring local police and supporting the military) conservatism stand true.  But these elephants are just as stubborn as the horses.  The saying goes, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.”  You also want to take a few hints from this Pink Panther short as well.  In that short Pink Panther wants to use a horse to get him back to the city.  But the horse doesn’t want to be Pink’s ride and be worked for nothing.  In the end, the horse wins.

The only thing you can really do is punish the Republican Party and deny them any access to power.  With the recent Roy Moore scandal made up or not, Mitch McConnell and ‘the team’ are not giving Justice Moore a chance to defend himself.  They just want him to step down and let Luther Strange take his place.  This has been a tactic used by leftists to prevent anyone who is truly a threat to their agenda to win or be confirmed to key positions in government.  Ask Justice Clarence Thomas, for the progressives used Anita Hill in hopes that Thomas could be borked and that a more liberal if not a progressive judge takes his place.  We got Justice Anthony Kennedy out of the Borking process and now we have same-sex marriage because of it.

If the write-in blank can be used to save Lisa Murkowski’s Senate career (which it did), then it also must be used as an alternative to a candidate that we as conservatives, constitutionalists, and federalists to protest a bad Republican candidate.  Heck, there is talk to push the write-in to save Luther Strange as well.  Now if Justice Moore is indeed guilty of these transgressions then yes, he should step down, no question.  However, the proof of Bill Clinton’s sexual affairs is more damning and believable, but because he was a Democrat (and had a certain amount of charm), he got away with them.

Yes Levin, Virginia is a Blue State.  But if the Republican Party does not want to “embrace conservatism,” they are going to be like that horse that refused the Pink Panther a ride.  It is also like that stupid song from Meghan Trainor.  They are going to keep saying “no” and we will have to give up and let them go.  Otherwise, we will get burned out, or we shall just conform to the team and embrace their crony capitalist, progressive lite agenda (and call it conservative) which will only tick off the blue-collar common people and prevent them for uniting with the suburbs unless they are Democratic too.  We as Republicans might be liked by the progressives for taking similar stands but they will not love us or support us.  For them, it is the Democratic Party or bust (John McCain & Barack Obama in 2008.  Guess who the left favored?).  The Democrat Party must be the party in charge of everything according to their faithful supporters and leaders.

This is the overall consequence of obeying Duverger’s law, which seems to be OK to break if only to help a GOP establishment candidate win.  We must break it for the good of America.  If we can’t, America is finished.  That would be a dream come true for the leftist radicals.

Levin: Don’t pretend the Virginia election wasn’t a ‘blowout’ — it’s about principles, it’s about conservatism

https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/levin-dont-pretend-the-virginia-election-wasnt-a-blowoutThursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin continued to stress how the election results in Virginia — where Democrats’ “tsunami” election all but neutralized the Republicans’ massive 32-seat majority in the lower House of Delegates — were just the latest reminder that principle is and most always will be the deciding factor for constituents.

“That’s a blowout,” Levin said. “It does us no good to pretend otherwise. It does us no good to watch the Republican Party continue to move Left. It does us no good, if we’re going to defeat the Left, to pretend that it’s the same as it was in the past.”

Beware of the dark side

Published

on

Many have started down the dark path.

Regardless of what you think of Roy Moore, I hope you reached that conclusion objectively. Unfortunately, those who dominate my news feed did not.

I saw bloodthirsty cries for him to drop out of the Senate race as soon as the first allegations were made, just as I witnessed stubborn declarations of innocence and that it was all a political smear. Both sides had more in common than not: their positions had nothing to do with the credibility of the allegations, but with the existence of the allegations alone.

Democrats and RINOs want him gone, so he must be innocent. Flyover Republicans want him elected, so he must be guilty.

From there, no amount of evidence on either side could penetrate stubborn skulls. The filter of confirmation bias tainted any appearance of guilt or innocence, and once again tribal politics reigned supreme.

But because God has a sense of humor, He threw Stuart Smalley into the mix.

Once the Al Franken (D-MN) groping photo surfaced, it was nothing if not comical to watch the tides reverse. Suddenly Moore’s tribal defenders started arbitrarily calling for Franken’s resignation, and Democratic loyalists rushed to protect him from fallout.

Bear in mind, I’m still not talking about those who’ve evaluated the evidence at hand and reached an objective conclusion. This is about the moral relativists who claim that sexual harassment and assault warrant swift impeachment and that women should be believed, not scrutinized — unless it’s happening to their guy.

Suddenly Democrats yell, “But we can’t afford to lose a pro-choice vote, no matter who it comes from!” And as Babylon Bee satirized, evangelicals would vote for Satan if he ran as a pro-life Republican.

Everyone, it seems, has forsaken principle.

I’m sick of arbitrary virtue, and, as always, there’s a Star Wars analogy for that.

In Episode III, Revenge of the Sith, Anakin Skywalker kills a disarmed (well, dishanded) Count Dooku at the prodding of his friend, Palpatine (or his pal, Friend-patine. I’ll stop now, I promise). While Palpatine insists, “He was too dangerous to be kept alive,” Anakin laments, “It’s not the Jedi way.”

Later, when Palpatine finds himself at the tip of Mace Windu’s lightsaber, Anakin demands that Palpatine stand trial. Because it’s the Jedi way? Not quite.

In a chilling echo, Master Windu counters, “He’s too dangerous to be kept alive” — the exact phrase used earlier by the Sith Lord.

(I could write an entire piece on how the Jedi and Sith are akin to the increasingly similar Republican and Democratic Parties, but I won’t go down that rabbit hole just yet.)

In fairness, I actually agree in both cases that the villains should have been killed. That’s my principle. And if Anakin opposed Palpatine’s death based on the Jedi way of not killing an unarmed opponent (are you still unarmed if you can shoot lightning from your fingertips?), that would have been his principle. It’s possible for two principled people to disagree.

But that wasn’t Anakin’s objection. As Windu draws back for the kill, Anakin confesses his true motive. Not “the Jedi way,” not due process, not even further interrogation or hostage bargaining. Seconds before the final blow, Anakin cries out, “I need him!”

Anakin severs Windu’s hand, Palpatine’s lightning thrusts the Jedi Master from the shattered window, and Anakin’s turn to the dark side is complete.

Anakin’s fall is a painfully recognizable warning in contemporary American politics — not just in 2017 or even 2016, but for decades of political discourse.

“I don’t care if he’s a child molester; I need him!”

“I don’t care if he assaulted women; I need him!”

“I don’t care if he left a woman to drown in Chappaquiddick,” and “I don’t care what he grabs women by.”

The chorus echoes loud and clear: “I need him!”

This is how you fall to the dark side, and as Padmé notes only moments later, “this is how liberty dies.” Ultimately, this moment proves the destruction of the entire republic.

When the wicked rule, the people mourn. Without consistent principles, we are in danger of sacrificing every blessing of freedom we enjoy. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away.

My warning to you is the same caution Master Yoda gives to Luke on Dagobah decades after the rise of the Empire: “Beware of the dark side. … If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.”

John Conyers’ denial of wrongdoing is exactly what’s wrong with abusive men in power

John Conyers denial of wrongdoing is exactly whats wrong with abusive men in power

The longest-sitting member of Congress, Democrat John Conyers of Michigan, is “expressly and vehemently” denying any wrongdoing following Buzzfeed’s blockbuster report that he paid off a former employee by three extra months of pay after firing her for what she claims was opposition to his sexual advances.

She Said A Powerful Congressman Harassed Her. Here’s Why You Didn’t Hear Her Story.

https://www.buzzfeed.com/paulmcleod/she-complained-that-a-powerful-congressman-harassed-her?utm_term=.kwaeyWOB5#.yakGXl5EOConyers confirmed he made the settlement in a statement Tuesday afternoon, hours after this story was published, but said that he “vehemently denied” the claims of sexual harassment at the time and continues to do so.

And the documents also reveal the secret mechanism by which Congress has kept an unknown number of sexual harassment allegations secret: a grinding, closely held process that left the alleged victim feeling, she told BuzzFeed News, that she had no option other than to stay quiet and accept a settlement offered to her.

Unlike accusations that keep popping up on a seemingly daily basis, this one has a very clear paper trail. That the Congressman is denying “wrongdoing” exemplifies a bigger problem than just sexual misconduct. Men like Conyers do bad things, but more importantly they truly believe they should get away with it.

“No wrongdoing” is legaleze

There seems to be no difference, at least in the minds of people like Conyers, between getting away with doing wrong and not actually doing it. At no point yet has Conyers claimed he isn’t a creep who uses his power to manipulate women he employs into being sexual objects for him. That isn’t what’s important to him. What’s important is that he got his victims to sign documents absolving him legally from his actions.

For this reason, he believes he needs to continue to represent the people of Michigan who have kept him in office for half a century.

This is a systemic problem that exists everywhere in free America, but the fact that it’s apparently rampant in Washington DC is utterly disgusting. In a seven-year period, Congress dished out millions of dollars to 235 people for “workplace violations.” Perhaps more infuriating is that it’s not the perpetrators, their campaigns, or their Congressional offices who pay for these settlements. They’re paid by taxpayers.

How Congress plays by different rules on sexual harassment and misconduct

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/how-congress-plays-by-different-rules-on-sexual-harassment-and-misconduct/2017/10/26/2b9a8412-b80c-11e7-9e58-e6288544af98_story.htmlWhen settlements do occur, members do not pay them from their own office funds, a requirement in other federal agencies. Instead, the confidential payments come out of a special U.S. Treasury fund.

Congressional employees have received small settlements, compared with the amounts some public figures pay out. Between 1997 and 2014, the U.S. Treasury has paid $15.2 million in 235 awards and settlements for Capitol Hill workplace violations, according to the congressional Office of Compliance. The statistics do not break down the exact nature of the violations.

How do we stop this from happening? How can we protect the women and men who are victimized? How do we get these creeps out of the halls of power in our nation’s capital? We need to make it as transparent as possible.

Every settlement dollar should be broadcast to the world

If an incident is worthy of having taxpayer dollars used to hush people up, then the people need to know about it. We need to know who did what. While payment of settlements aren’t always done because of actual crimes committed, we should have the ability to discern for ourselves when an elected official does something worthy of a payout.

The club in DC is corrupt. We all know this. While it may be hard to track down all of the wrongdoing, we can at least attempt to address the misconduct by public officials against their own employees. That’s a reasonable expectation.

If Al Franken will not step down, Roy Moore should finish his Senate campaign win or lose

Roy Moore Al Franken

This is the double standard that the Democrats have stood on since the days of William Jefferson Clinton.  Now it’s the same with Al Franken.  All the sensitivity training is not going to solve the problems of men and certain women regarding their wild oats.  The timing of Roy Moore’s sexual allegations has come into question because it’s proving to be a political tactic… a very bad one I might add.  Because if you’re going to use sexual harassment as a political weapon, it will be no different than the boy who is crying wolf.

Right now Charlie Rose of CBS and PBS has been called on his bluff on sexual harassment charges. When this will end, who knows? Rose is a TV personality that could be a liability to the networks he works for, thus the suspension from both media outlets.

If Moore is proven to be a schmuck, then his stance on the 10 Commandments was likely a show, even if that show did cost him his job as a judiciary.  I don’t think it is an act.  I think he understands the principles of the U.S. Constitution and the Holy Bible and would die to uphold those documents as natural law.

The narcissist  – if not a sociopath – proved to be such so far in this case is Al Franken.  Sadly he is not the only one. You have such people in both parties.   I said in a previous post on NOQ Report that Bill Clinton was not impeached.  Well, a reader did correct me on that one.  You know though, it feels like it was all just talk, because the Senate would not impeach and remove him.  I do apologize for the slight error in this but to me, Bill Clinton got away with bearing false witness and the progressives just don’t care.  What matters is that their demi-gods get them their desired utopia on earth.

If Roy Moore steps down, he will only admit that he is guilty, even if he is not in this case.  Franken owned out to what he did, but he will not give up his Senate seat.  What does that tell you?

May Roy Moore win the U.S. Senate seat for Alabama.

Al Franken is getting away with it. That’s why Roy Moore will win

He still thinks he can win, despite the pleadings of national Republicans and conservative media. The truth is, he’s probably right, and D.C.’s institutional hypocrisy is to blame.

Moore’s voters are refusing to quit on him. Elected Alabama officials are defending him. Some are more enthusiastic about Moore’s campaign now than before The Washington Post first printed the bombshell allegations against Moore.
