Republican monsters duke it out: The coming “Plutocrats vs. Tea Party” cage match
If there’s one thing I thought all Republicans understood, even the rich ones, was that the vaunted "base" was king. After all, it was their expensive propaganda that created it. Those who financed the conservative movement very carefully nurtured the so-called Silent Majority of white people who didn’t hold with all that pointy-headed multiculturalism or welfare queens and feminazis — the hardscrabble Real Americans of the heartland who loved flag and country. If the big GOP donors have been watching Mad Men reruns and think they’re financing a movement of Wall Street traders and Junior League housewives, they’re on the wrong channel. They need to turn on Duck Dynasty and get themselves some guns.

Cliven Bundy:
Charles Krauthammer, Chris Wallace, and even ANN COULTER lash out:



And why conservatives, or some conservatives end up in bed with people who, you know, he makes an anti-government statement, he takes an anti-government stand, he wears a nice big hat and he rides a horse, and all of a sudden he is a champion of democracy. This is a man who said that he doesn't recognize the authority of the United States of America. That makes him a patriot? I love this country, I love the Constitution, and it is the Constitution that established a government that all of us have to recognize


The guy had had judgments against him. They went to court. I don't know, we have a system. You go to court. If you don't like what the court does, then you appeal it in the court. He'd been in the courts for ten years and the courts kept ruling against him. .... I'm not saying that the government acted perfectly. On the other hand, I don't know that you make a hero out of a guy who, you know, look. There are obligations. It would be like saying, "Well, I'm not going to allow myself to be screened at the airport. Because that's government overreach."


"Republicans and conservatives ought to learn, be careful before you choose a mascot,"
(Once again Ann Coulter displays her mastery of the ancient art of )
Meanwhile, among the hardcore base the major feeling is and in addition,
All this is hilarious, because if you'll remember last year, for being "too liberal". Look for more of this in the wake of the Bundy Debacle.

By Dan Balz
The problem with Haley's 60% comment is that from 1972 - 1964, the electorate was far whiter. Now, it's browner, gayer, and younger. As I've said before, the failure to adjust to demographics is one of the GOPs big problems in the 90s and beyond.

heh...OK, so anti-immigrant forces in the GOP feel big time vindication due to Cantor's overthrow, so they're going absolutely BALLISTIC over this article at Breitbart:

The evening was “very enjoyable,” according to Jarrett, who also claimed to be "impressed by Murdoch's passion for passing comprehensive immigration reform".

This is where the rubber meets the road: The "Establishment" (read: the Republicans who still want to win elections) and Big Business want that steady inflow of cheap labor.
Meanwhile the Grass Roots shout "Hell No"

Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin teamed up to show "Reformicons" just how tough reforming the GOP will be
This is a link-heavy article, but worth the read and the tangents.

Until McDaniel/Cochran and Kevin McCarthy, I honestly believed there was an armistice of a type between the Establishment and the TP. It was an armistice that would only last until November, but hey, a divided house blah blah blah.
But now? Forget it.

The problem is that news organizations highlight these morons and give them more of a soapbox and the press is, um, well, nothing good to say. The same website that has her rant on illegal immigration has an article on Glenn Beck bringing food to detainees and sounding like he is implying that immigration reform should be looked into. Yet that is skipped in the article. Sadly, what I see today in the press chooses to highlight the divide and often fails to put in other relevant information where the divide is being reduced.

When I raised money for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) I noticed that the people who really gave serious money were those far to the right.
So Republican politicians find themselves caught in a bind. Their wish to keep the money tap open basically forces them to take positions and make statements that they know are
considerably to the right of average Americans. These guys realize that if they make a moderate or reasonable statement on something like immigration, to name but one example, then probably in the next 24 to 48 hrs they could easily see donations drop by two thirds.
I love the irony that the party that most caters to the rich, may be fatally wounding itself for future national elections, because of its willingness to bend to the force of $ now.
Most of the folks I used to ask for donations had no respect for people who were "middle of the road" politically. They used to have a little cutesy saying "If you are middle of the road you will just be run over."

The thing is that Palin only gets coverage because she is well known. Often, there is so little relationship between public fame and the actual worth of a person's ideas.
I live 35 miles south of Cleveland Ohio. When Christopher Hitchens died, Cleveland's largest newspaper noted his passing with less than 15 words, but on the same day, gave a large paragraph obituary to a college football coach, who had retired decades before his death. Mr Hitchens put forth thought provoking ideas, right up to weeks, or even days before he died, but somehow his life gets less respect than someone who, many years earlier, had the task of inspiring his players to kick ass on the football field. Yeah, the kind of deep thinking that every country needs in these ever more complex times.
It is amazing that conservatives have, for many years, gotten away with labeling the media as liberal. The companies that advertise on the main stream media, thus sponsoring its programming, make sure that corporate interests are protected.
Back in 2000 there was a dispute between Ford Motor Company and the Firestone Tire Company, about who was responsible for dangerous tire failures that were happening on Ford Explorers, that came from the factory equipped with Firestone tires.
Ted Koppel, the anchor of ABC's Nightline program, had the CEO of Ford Motor Co. as his guest. At one point in the program, the Ford CEO told Koppel that it would be incredible
to think that Ford would ever keep producing a vehicle, if the company knew that it presented a safety hazard.
At that point, as a well informed newsman, Koppel should have replied that, a decade earlier, internal company memos from Ford itself, had shown that the company had kept making its Ford Pinto model, for a long time after company officials were made aware that the design of the car's gas tank presented a serious hazard to drivers and passengers.
The Ford Pinto gas tank fiasco had been a huge story in 1978 to 1979, so there is no way that Ted Koppel was unaware of it. The fact that this incident was not brought up by Mr Koppel when Ford's CEO claimed that the company's behavior had always been above board, can only be explained by the fact that Ford was spending a lot of advertising dollars
on ABC, the network employing Ted Koppel.
Instead of the mainstream media being labeled as the "liberal media", a more accurate description would be to call it the corporate media. All one has to do is make note of all the huge corporations that sponsor the evening newscasts of the major TV networks, to see whose values are really being represented and protected.

Glad your world is so black and white that there can only be one possible reason and no others. That there is no way that maybe Ted Koppel didn't think of that at the time of the interview. That there was no way that Ted Koppel thought about the incident but wasn't sure of the full details so didn't want to bring it up and be wrong. That there is no way it was something else not listed here. I have been accused by people of not covering something in a story because I was protecting certain interests or protecting adverting revenue or showing bias. Every case of this happening has been due to lack of full information on the necessary part before going to print. And as a print journalist, I have time to look into matters. As a television journalist, doing a live interview, Ted Koppel doesn't.

Hi Flash. I would be less than honest not to admit that virtually every objection you presented to my reasoning could be right on the money.
But at the same time, would you not concede that if Mr Koppel was aware of some devastating information about Ford, the last thing he would do is use it to spring a trap on the
unsuspecting CEO of that company, especially considering that such a humiliation could have easily cost ABC one of its most valuable clients?
Having worked in the business world, I'm all too well aware of the extreme corporate ass kissing that is SOP in order to retain a client's loyalty.
And understand that I've always liked Ted Koppel, rarely missing Nightline, while it was on the air. I liked the guys voice and phrasing. Even have a bunch of Nightlines that I recorded on VHS.
But I'm sure that when interviewing someone as connected to ABC's bottom line as the CEO of Ford, Ted Koppel probably had some pretty strict guidelines provided to him by the people upstairs. For one thing, stick to the exact subject the guest has agreed to discuss, with no unexpected side issues. I wonder Flash if you would agree that such conditions
would be a pretty standard requirement for a network naturally concerned for its own well being.
Wanted to quickly bring up a different issue regarding candor, or the lack there of, as practiced by certain TV personalities.
A few years ago, Larry King had Judge Judy on as a guest on his CNN show. I was never a regular viewer of the Judge Judy program, but in the several times I sat down and watched it when my wife had it on, I noticed that the woman pulled no punches, never being reluctant to call someone out as an idiot. Let's just say the woman does not suffer
fools easily.
So in the interview with King, Larry asked Judge Judy what she thought of Sarah Palin. I half thought that Judy's response might echo that of Steve Schmidt, the man who convinced McCain to put Palin on his ticket, but has since said that the thought of such an ignorant woman being a 72 year old man's heartbeat away from the Presidency, is truly frightening. (Even Nicolle Wallace, who prepped Palin for her debate, and was communications chief for George W Bush's Whitehouse, told Schmidt on election day 2008
that she could not bring herself to vote for McCain,with Palin on the ticket.)
Anyway, Flash, long story short, Judy's answer was that she thought Palin "is a very intelligent woman." I would bet my right arm, as well as my right nut, that Judge Judy's stated opinion of Palin, is anything but an accurate reflection of her true feelings.
However, Judy's statement was the smart one to make in looking out for her own interests.
Judy had nothing to gain, and potentially a lot to lose, if she pointed out that Palin was such an ignoramus that the McCain team had to inform her that the Prime Minister and not the Royal Family, head up the government of the U.K. Or that Africa is a continent, not a country. My 8th grade granddaughter had a much better grasp of current, and world events, than did the moose skinner from Alaska, as she ran for Vice President.
Since the Judge Judy show is watched by people of all political stripes, being blunt about Palin's qualities could easily tick off a lot of conservatives that would otherwise be fans of the judge. Like I indicated, I'm 99% sure that Judge Judy does not speak to friends about Palin privately, in anything like the same manner in which she came across on L.K's
program.
Sorry, if I have rambled on quite a bit, but my wife is quite sick and I'm pretty wired. Have only drank 7 cans of Pepsi, and 2 of cherry Coke today.
But, if you should get a few spare minutes, do me a favor Flash, by giving me your blunt assessment of anything I said that you'd care to comment on. I'd really appreciate it. Take care, man.

Ted Koppel could very well have been told by the corporate not to discuss that. Another possibility, which you didn't mention, and I would find more likely is that Ted Koppel may have had to agree prior to the interview being accepted not to bring up that situation as a condition set by the CEO of Ford for his appearance. Sadly, when dealing with touchy/controversial issues, sometimes a reporter has to agree to limitations. I have had to agree, as a condition for interviews, that certain subjects can not be asked about or brought up or in some cases have had to submit a list of questions in advance with no ability to change them come the interview. I know that agreeing to such terms sounds bad, but there are cases where having some response to something from a person, even if it is a canned highly prepared response, is better than nothing. I hate such interviews, but have had to in some cases agree to them. My situation is different where I am print, I can still try to get the missing answers elsewhere and proof of them, and then try to talk to the person again prior to the article going to print. Happily, the place I write for has never put limitations on me, even when the place in question provides money for our operation. Yes I have also had people give statements or opinions of something that I believe in my gut to be false so as to protect some interest. Such statements I still print, since I can't prove the person truly doesn't feel that way and the feeling is attributed to the person. When someone states something as fact to me that I can't back up though, I don't print it.
My huge objection with your original statement was that it was that it could only be one way. The reality is only Ted Koppel knows for sure why he didn't bring that up. I have been told why I haven't done something by people or have seen comments from people stating why I didn't bring something up and the reality of those statements is very seldom is the person making the statement right. Usually the real reason why it isn't there, at least for me, is that: I couldn't find any proof of it; couldn't find enough proof of it; it was false or the statements made to me had too many falsities to them; the portion in question was limited by people I talked to and I couldn't find anyone who wouldn't put that limitation on; it was only talked to me about off the record; or it came up so late in my reporting that I didn't have the time to actually get a solid answer.

Flash, I very much appreciate your reply. Did not even suspect that you would offer a response so quickly.
I do take heed from what, in effect, is your advice not to jump to conclusions about the motivations of people in the public eye. (or about any other people, for that matter.)
As you related, you have your own personal experience in seeing how maddening it must be, for folks to speculate about the reasons behind your actions, though these people had
no solid evidence to justify those speculations.
So, with the help of your words of caution, maybe this old dog really can learn new tricks, or, more accurately, learn not to trick himself into launching into erroneous modes of thinking that lack a foundation of verifiable facts.
Thanks again for your reply, man.

That is all I wanted you to take from it. And also, that doesn't mean that I am saying your conclusion is wrong, it could be correct. It is just when someone says the only way to interpret something is one way, it sends shivers down my spine, since I know in most cases there are numerous reasons, and usually ones I don't think of as well, why something may have happened as it did.

On a state level 104 Republican politicians in Kansas including a former lieutenant governor and former member of the U.S. House of Representatives have pledged support for Democratic challenger Paul Davis instead of incumbent conservative Republican Sam Brownback. This is akin to 104 leading Democratic politicians in Massachusetts pledging support for a Republican challenger over an incumbent Democrat governor.

^ Concerning taxes, a couple of economists on PBS, in 2012, discussed what the consequences would be if conservatives have their wish so that taxes are never raised. One thing they discussed is how unpleasant such a government policy would be for seniors.
It really all comes down to basic demographics. Today there are about 3.1 or 3.2 Americans working for each retiree. But in the next 15 to 20 yrs that ratio will drop to very close to
2 workers for each retiree. If Congress never authorizes any hike in taxes it is not difficult to see what has to happen to Social Security and Medicare benefits. The tea baggers seem totally oblivious to how their anti-tax attitude would screw Grandma and Grandpa. Yet Tea Party folks seem to be as much in favor of their parents and grandparents receiving
benefits, as any other political group is.
Smiler Grogan, you mention the "Starve The Beast" theory that conservatives hope to implement. If they succeed let's hope that a solid majority of American voters blame the right
people when Starve The Beast makes itself felt by starving the budgets of millions of American senior citizens. Since the group most dedicated to voting is seniors, let's hope that
they won't be too hungry to understand who screwed them.

One does not require a fancy-dancy economics degree to know the kind of damage that Tea Party policies can accomplish. A fundamental understanding of economics does just fine.
Many have already started to rebel against the TP following the Debt Default and the Shutdown so they're blaming The Right already. But, as poll after poll has shown, the GOP Congress is entrenched due to the skill with which districts were redrawn in 2010. Still, as Kansas is showing, there are still vulnerabilities.

Ann Coulter has angered the hand that feeds:
:
Chris McDaniel, candidate for the U.S. Senate from Mississippi, lost the Republican runoff to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran last month, and now he is being led down a primrose path to political oblivion. McDaniel's passionate supporters think that a moment of crisis for the country is a good time to treat control of the Senate as if it's a prom queen election.
Hoping for yet a third primary vote, McDaniel's crew is going to prevent him from having any political career, ever again.



Twice now you have slammed a good man and a damn good conservative who happens to be a friend of mine, and trashed true conservatives in Mississippi as fanatics. I must say that I have been skeptical of you for years, especially when you called Tea Partiers frauds and supported Chris Christie for President, but now you have certainly shown me your true colors. You are not a principled conservative but just another Establishment hack, no different than Karl Rove or Mitch McConnell, or the Democrats you supposedly hate so much.
We, the true conservatives in this great nation, are fighters, Ann, which is obviously something you are unfamiliar with. You have shown yourself to be a Tory. Thank God you were not in Philadelphia in 1776! You probably would have argued that King George really wasn’t all that bad. Or that he was only slightly different than Thomas Jefferson, am I right?
We believe in fighting for this great country that we are losing by the day. We’ve had enough of cowardly Republicans, like you, who whimper at the slightest hand raised by Democrats. We are proud to stand behind a true conservative fighter in Chris McDaniel and God bless his efforts! But if you are not going to join our crusade, then do us all a big favor and shut up!

Ann finds herself in Dr. Frankenstein mode, and the monster she, Rush, Fox, and National Review created, is threatening to consume them alive: look at some of the comments in this article.
Once upon a time I was impressed with Ann’s stand on conservative values, but like Karl Rove she is nothing more than an annoying bobble head, hair playing dope.
Great article, you knocked it out of the park! Coulter can respond truthfully or continue to cover for the Barbour-Bush cabal. This crony crap is getting peeled back layer by layer. The poseurs can get a conscience now or get the heII out of the way!

The Cochran/McDaniel brouhaha is the essence of Establishment v. Grassroots. Boy is it going to get ugly.

OK, recap: last June, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor got deposed from his seat in Congress, and therefore from his leadership position as well. And conservatives/TPers whooped and hollered and partied to no end, until, that is, they discovered that a certain Kevin McCarthy was poised to take over the leadership role and then, lo, they were reminded of the saying "Please careful what you wish for...
Well even more proof of that now. McCarthy, in a sop to the Tea Party,
Well that moment is gone because
How long before McCarthy is looking at a TP primary challenge against him?

I assumed power would just naturally flow back to states when the feds don't have the fuel to govern from a distance, but secession or the threat of secession may be necessary to start that process. If a pol claims to hate DC or be an outsider but doesn't push secession, then he may be ignored as just another liar.

Smiler Grogan, your mention of Mitch McConnell reminded me of what journalist Howard Fineman said about the Kentucky Creep (my characterization, not Fineman's) on MSNBC's election coverage last night.
Mr. Fineman said that " McConnell's strategy of locking up action in Washington, and then placing the blame on the President, worked brilliantly."
Last night's results were sad for this country and our President.
But a recent email from my brother in New York, caused me to think last night about a real nightmare that could beset America in the next couple of years.
My brother Brian retired from the very Republican company Goldman Sachs, as a Vice-President in IT, after 21 years service.
Yet in his email, Brian reminded me how people like the billionaire Koch brothers have been given free rein by the Supreme Court, through its infamous Citizen's United Decision, to run amok
corrupting the political process through the infusion of unprecedented sums of money. For this election, it was reported, that the political spending total of these 2 conservatives alone could
reach 300 million dollars.
C.U. and other recent decisions, have already shown how tilted the Supreme Court is in favor of the interests of powerful corporations and the rich, over those of ordinary people in this country.
The nightmare I alluded to a minute ago, would be a liberal Supreme Court Justice like 81 year old Ruth Bader Ginsburg or 75 year old Stephen Breyer, exiting the court while their replacement
would still have to be confirmed by the very conservative Senate that will be seated in January. Talk about how things could go from bad to worse.
Such a shame that so many average, ordinary people in this country, are not awake enough to realize that their lives are the last thing that conservative Senators in Washington possess any genuine concern for.
The only concern for the little guy shown by these conservatives is that portrayed in their slickly produced, phony campaign ads, where they are pictured smiling, as they throw their arms around workers.

Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed to the SC by a margin of 68 to 31 with 9 Republicans joining the Democrats. If he nominates someone slightly more moderate than her or Kagan, can't see where Obama will have a problem with the Senate.

Something people are forgetting is that -- endangered species that they are -- there are still relatively moderate Republicans (or maybe the correct term might be "opportunistic Republicans") , particularly Lamar Alexander, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins. On some of the more extreme legislation, these three in particular cannot be depended on to go along with the crowd especially if they can work some sort of deal that will be advantageous to them down the road.

They can't pass their own budget.

They won't confirm Loretta Lynch.

They've got nothing planned for an Obamacare replacement in case the SCOTUS votes against it.

...and of course, there's that letter to Iran.

Rudy Giuliani strongly supports the nomination of Loretta Lynch. The current AG is Eric Holder. Add those 2 facts together and you would think the GOP would be racing to confirm Lynch. Mark Shields mentioned on the PBS News Hour Friday that the abortion language in the trafficking bill wasn't particularly important. However, nothing scares a Democrat politician more than crossing the pro- choice crowd. Hence, we have the making of a stalemate.

I'll give you that -- but let's also admit, that the GOP are being petulant babies, and the Democrats have to stop giving in to their hostage-taking.
