At last Republicans can read a coherent explanation of why they didn’t win in 2012, despite high unemployment and a dismal economy, the unpopularity of Obamacare and many scandals, such as Fast and Furious. Best-selling author Dr. Jerome Corsi, who spent three weeks traveling with the Mitt Romney campaign listening to every stump speech, gives us an inside look at the cockiness and mistakes of Romney’s staff in a new book called, “What Went Wrong.” Continue reading “AUTOPSY RESULTS: Why Republicans Lost In 2012” »

Karl Rove has declared war on grassroots conservatives and Tea Parties. Rove, who had the richest super PAC in 2012 (American Crossroads, which reportedly spent $300 million in the 2012 election cycle), has started a new fund called Conservative Victory Project to spend big bucks in the 2014 Republican primaries to defeat Republican candidates not approved by the Establishment.
Rove’s big money spending last year, which was similarly designed to help only Establishment candidates, especially if they had defeated a real conservative in the primary, was notoriously unsuccessful. Of the 31 races that Rove aired TV ads, Republicans won only 9, so his donors received little return on their investment.
Establishment losers included Rick Berg who lost in North Dakota and Denny Rehberg who lost in Montana, even while Romney was carrying both of those states. Other Establishment losers were George Allen in Virginia, Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin, Connie Mack in Florida and Heather Wilson in New Mexico.
Meanwhile, Rove was helping Harry Reid to keep control of the Senate by trying to defeat real conservatives nominated by grassroots Republicans. Rove made nasty and hurtful remarks about conservative candidates he didn’t like. Continue reading “Battle for Control of the Republican Party Begins” »

Subject: Memo: The Challenge Confronting the Republican Party
I wanted to share with you the following memo which I have written at the request of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, and which he has distributed to RNC members this afternoon.
This is the beginning of a four to six month project considering what the Republican Party must do to become competitive in all 50 states.
THE CHALLENGE CONFRONTING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
To Chairman Reince Priebus:
Thank you for inviting me to present an analysis for the Republican National Committee about the current challenges Republicans face at every level. Continue reading “Newt Gingrich Plan for Republican Party Reformation” »

An Open Letter to U.S. House and Senate Republicans
Dear Republican U.S. Representatives and Senators:
You are entering into a period of testing.
In the House, the nation elected in 2012 one of the largest Republican majorities in the past 100 years. You have a mandate to fight for conservative principles that is arguably much broader than the one that narrowly reelected President Barack Obama claims to have for his leftist agenda.
Of course, House Republicans alone cannot pass a law, but united you can stop any bill which violates the principles you publicly committed to support.
In the Senate, you have more than enough Republicans to prevent the passage of anything truly harmful to our country.
Nevertheless, you are already being pressured to abandon the principles voters elected you to uphold. Continue reading “Open Letter to House, Senate Republicans by Conservative Leaders” »
The Republican Party, from its inception in 1856, has stood for conservative pro-family and pro-Constitutional values. Those values are what first drew me to the Republican Party and they are what have led me to be engaged in my unwavering support of same.
I have opposed those Republicans who support abortion, homosexual marriage, expanded government, increased spending and other political positions that others and I argue are antithetical to what our Party has long stood for.
But the Republican Party we have supported and fought for is no longer the same. We have elected candidates who have behaved – and supported policies – more in line with Democrats than those standards we expect from true Conservatives. And, specific to that point, we have paid dearly as a nation for it. Continue reading “Divorce May Be The Only Answer” »

I am not writing this letter to accuse but rather to advance understanding. And even though I am white, I am not writing as an outsider but as a fellow evangelical, part of the same spiritual family. May I pose some candid questions?
Are you guilty, on any level, of blind allegiance to the Democratic party? And, on Election Day, did any of you compromise your convictions out of racial solidarity? Continue reading “An Open Letter To My Black Evangelical Friends” »
