The rabid nature of anti-Palin demonizers exposes who they fear most

Didn’t take long for the feeding frenzy to start…soon as they read our earlier blog on how the GOP attacks one of their own, defenders of such idiocy start raging.

BCP won’t link to yet another pundit rant on a conservative site, choosing instead to counter their arguments with a few observations on Sarah Palin’s Summit speech.

In plain language, Sarah Palin spoke of

  • Supporting the U.S. Military, and how the Left demonizes our soldiers;
  • Media Bias that overwhelmingly supports Left wing ideology;
  • A change in GOP Leadership to strengthen Conservative Values;
  • The critical need to protect our Freedoms;
  • The importance of a Stiff Spine in Republican ranks;
  • Why the GOP must Go On Offense to fight Alinskyite tactics;
  • The crucial need to focus on Achievements of GOP-Run States;
  • The urgency of explaining to Youth Voters there is nothing ‘free’ from a gov’t;
  • The vital nature of facing National Security Issues honestly and openly;
  • How America relies on a Strong Military;
  • The necessity of Opposing Amnesty to protect legal immigration and the middle class that will be hurt by such executive action;
  • Obeying an oath of office to Protect The U.S. Constitution, not trample it;
  • Fight against the Growing National Debt;
  • Engage in an Energy Policy that will benefit America;
  • Fighting to rebuild Household Income;
  • Halting the Overreach Of Government;
  • Stopping the continuing danger of Big Government growth;
  • Evaluating voting records to Hold Elected Politicians Accountable;
  • Reasserting the importance of Believing In America & Its Opportunity;
  • Resuscitating the American Dream;
  • Rising to the challenge of Conservative Principles and Values.

…in all, a marathon of over 21 issues within a record 40-minutes of elapsed time.

If that’s ‘rambling’, ‘bizarre’, ‘disjointed’, we believe America needs more of it. And, if it’s true that ‘they always attack those they fear most’

…Governor Sarah Palin seems to be their worst nightmare.

Bread-breaking with the Brotherhood, ball-breaking with Israel?

Obama’s in a tizzy over Congress inviting Israel’s PM to speak on the Hill…

…but he’s okay with a White House hoe-down hosting the Muslim Brotherhood?

Claiming it hurts his Iran negotiations, Obama slams the Congress invite.

Angry that they see their Appeaser-in-Chief supposedly dissed, some on the Left are actually claiming it’s unconstitutional for the Congress to ask a foreign leader to speak with them, because that activity isn’t specifically accorded.

But the Constitution does specifically state Congress has the power “…to regulate Commerce with foreign nations”; can that be done without talking to those nations?

Furthermore, it mandates Congress is to “…make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.” Which further justifies talking with foreign nations.

‘ALL laws…for carrying into Execution…Powers…in the Government…’

(See Article I, section 8, clauses 3 and 18)

Bottom line? Congress is the direct representative of American citizens: it would be a huge disservice to those citizens if Congress didn’t do their job…constitutionally.

(Besides…we like the way this invitation enrages Liberals.)

Blowing smoke on the ‘benefits’ of amnesty

Pushing his amnesty concept, Obama’s team has begun releasing a state-by-state bullet-point list of benefits, starting with how an influx of illegals helps California.

Their claim? A stronger economy and a boost in productivity as 1.5 million new tax- payers add revenues to the state coffers and ‘contribute to the state’s economy’.

The problem?

Obama seems to have ignored the burden amnestied illegals will create, when they’re qualified to receive tax-funded entitlements (welfare, healthcare, etc).

And how does the state of California, with the third-highest unemployment in the Nation, plan to handle the task of finding or creating jobs for those amnestied?

It should come as no surprise that – once again – Americans are being deceived.

But, no worry, the state can just raise your taxes when the reality hits.

Selling the GOP to anti-GOP voters

Logic dictates that winning elections is key to gaining political advantage.

The challenge to Republicans has always been that, though they had the high ground in the arena of ideas, such advantage is lost on voters most reliant on government aid, and most susceptible to ‘fear of loss’ manipulation.

So, when a state population balance shifts to that demographic, the political advantage is gained by those most adept at playing on the needs of the entitlement-dependent…unethical, but highly effective.

Democrats are masters at manipulating the emotions necessary to get votes. And (for the most part) they have the mainstream media as a willing ally in that strategy.

That’s their strength. Their weakness is that everything they promise is based on deception, and, often, lies. Republicans need to be better at exposing the lie, in terms those who have been lied to will understand.

A perfect example of Democrat strategy is Obamacare: ‘if you like your plan you can keep it’, ‘bends the cost curve down’, ‘saves you thousands per year’, ‘not a tax’…

…all lies. The challenge then becomes articulating effectively to shift support.

When a politician promises to ‘help’ voters by taxing business, they fail to mention that business must pass on that cost by raising prices, in order to stay profitable.

And the politician never hesitates to blame the business when prices are raised.

It’s a win-win for Democrats…they get more tax dollars to hand out to cronies, and pit the business community against the voter by claiming ‘greed’ causes price hikes.

People don’t like being lied to, used, manipulated, or deceived. What Republicans need to do is effectively explain that it’s bad Democrat policy that causes higher prices, and not the ‘greedy profit motive’…expose the deceptions, and deceivers.

Put it in terms anyone would understand…

If you owned a business where taxes went up, would you choose to run it at a loss and pay higher taxes, or pass the costs of business on by raising your prices?

Ask minimum wage supporters: would you pay double for a cheeseburger or soft drink, so a burger-flipper can get paid more money?

Most importantly, the GOP should remember they don’t have to win everyone over… just enough of the opposition to make a difference in the elections.

GOP elites break out in severe ‘Palin-itis’ rash

Seems the Republican elites have redefined the definition of a split second…

…it’s now the amount of time it takes from the end of any Sarah Palin speech, to when the GOP elites start trash-talking her comments, vision, and ability.

A well-known journalist referred to her Iowa Freedom Summit speech as “…long, rambling, and at times barely coherent…”, then quoted others who trashed her effort as not up to the serious nature of what they believed that Summit should evoke.

But anyone viewing the C-Span video of her speech objectively will think otherwise.

Yes, she used personal anecdotes to draw attention to Left-leaning media bias.

Yes, she threw down on Hollywood and Michael Moore for vilifying our U.S. military.

And then she spoke of the need for strong conservative leadership, the need for our leadership to fiercely defend American Freedoms, and the importance of the federal government serving the people, instead of American people serving government.

‘Long’? ‘Rambling’? ‘Barely coherent’? When did conservative principles devolve?

Sarah Palin condemned the Left’s failed policies, domestic and foreign, and called for the GOP to “…go on Offense now…”to fight their demonizing, Alinskyite tactics.

“Calling Gov Palin’s remarks bizarre and disjointed would be charitable.” REALLY?

The Iowa Freedom Summit was organized “…to hear directly from conservative leaders on how we can get America back on track by focusing on our core principles of pro-growth economics, social conservatism, and a strong national defense.”

Sarah Palin spoke with personal perspective and a ‘back-at-ya’ approach that may seem ‘barely coherent’ and ‘bizarre’ to the GOP elite…but the ‘grassroots’ hear her, loud and clear – and that was the focus of the Summit: grass-root conservatives.

One would think elite GOPers would understand that goal…

…after all, it was noted quite openly on the Summit’s website Home page.

One wonders why so-called Republicans enjoy denigrating their own with such unbounded enthusiasm. It’s expected from Democrats, but why arm them?

A look at Governor Palin’s history might provide a glimpse of understanding. In her political rise, she took on corruption and incompetence in both parties.

Republican elites may be willing to do anything to protect their power…

…but objective journalists shouldn’t stoop so low to help them.

Message to the GOP et al

…when attacking politicians, please go for those with a (D) after their name!!

Message to honest Republicans: listen to Gov. Palin’s speech, decide for yourself.

For GOP, the message is more important than the messenger

Pundits are scrambling to discuss the faces in the 2016 GOP presidential field.

Too bad they’re not focusing all that energy on a 2016 message.

Reagan didn’t win in a landslide because of his charisma. His message connected.

A pretty face with a faulty message will come up empty in 2016…just ask Mitt Romney. It should be evident that the challenge is selling conservative principals effectively.

Honest Democrats and Independents are conflicted over the failure of Liberal policy. It’s time to make serious efforts to define and sell them on Republican solutions that resonate.

Hard to do that, when it seems many in the GOP are embracing Big Government as well.

Biting the hand that feeds

Only businesses can create jobs…which enable income…which builds an economy.

Some argue government creates jobs, but fail to consider that, in a free-market republic like the USA, government can only exist by taxation…on businesses or individuals.

NRO’s Kudlow has a piece on ‘Common Sense Economics’ that’s worth a scan (though we believe that his points one and two should be reversed in the order he presents).

Obama’s speech on the State of the Union focused on attacking business, in-so-far-as his higher taxation ideas take money from businesses, thus dampening the economy.

Business drives America…

Our free market capitalist system has made us the world’s economic engine. Excess tax policy overburdens that engine…politicians know it, but greed trumps that knowledge.

They fall prey to a desire for more money…or more power. And Americans lose.
