Post Party Summits

This is a great idea – keep the momentum going!

Erick at RedState:

American Majority is one of the groups I heartily endorse every chance I get. It is not Democrat. It is not Republican. It is conservative.

American Majority is committed to training people to run not for
Congress, but for local office — farm team building. These guys are terrific and their training is the best I’ve seen in a very long time.

Then there is Smart Girl Politics, one of the fastest growing activist groups in the country. I’m a big fan.

Today I’m delighted to announce RedState is teaming up with American Majority and Smart Girl Politics for some post-party summits. At a time when Americans are losing their allegiance to political parties for the sake of parties, we’re focusing more and more on ideas and ideals. The group that makes the best case for its ideas will win.

It is not enough to stand on the sideline and it is not enough to protest — conservatives must learn how to implement freedom and liberty on the ground in their communities. With the right tools and training, conservative activists can be successful in taking their community back to the principles of limited government, individual freedom and the free market.

In the era of post-party politics, it is essential that the limited government movement have knowledge of and the ability to implement the tools of 21st century political engagement. These regional summits are going to give attendees the tools they need to go home and win. If you are looking to become more politically effective, attending one of the Summits is a must!

Across the country we are going to team up, collaborate, and work to win. We’ll start in Pittsburgh, PA on April 23rd. Then we’re off to Jacksonville, Denver, Indianapolis, Boston, Kansas City, and Charlotte.

Find out where we are and get more details if you are interested in attending. Together, we will take back America.

Whoot! Whoot!

What Is Wrong With This Picture?

Fausta explains. Good grief! Hello!?! Is anyone in charge with half a brain?

Frank Gaffney at Big Government smells a rat,

The Obama administration’s determined effort to reduce America’s missile defense capabilities initially seemed to be just standard Leftist fare — of a piece with the Democratic base’s visceral hostility to the idea of protecting us against ballistic missile threats. A just-unveiled symbolic action suggests, however, that something even more nefarious is afoot.

Do As We Say, Not As We Do

Politics is just high school, but with bigger egos.

Those Democrats, you’ve just got to hand it to ’em. Being two-faced is a hard job. Just ask any catty bad-girl cheerleader. Not only does it take constant attention to remembering all the lies you’ve told, but keeping up with what you said to whom. Just like the mean-girl back-stabber next door, but with a government expense account, government provided health care and military air transport at your beck and call.

Rewind a bit and remember how upset the very same Democrats with Republicans over “the nuclear option.”

In 2005, the Senators were piling shame on Republicans for using Reconciliation, also known as the Nuclear Option. Note that Republicans DID NOT use Reconciliation. The video follows some history on Reconciliation and the Nuclear Option.

Maggie does an excellent job of explaining it all. Watch the video here (sorry it won’t embed.) And be sure to notice that first guy in the video along with Joe Biden’s telling quip,

“I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing.”

Comedy gold.

Today, during the summit-snoozer, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) shone like the new boy who just moved in down the block. Sen. John McCain, on the other hand, didn’t have such a good day.

True to form, while the nation was distracted by fluff and bother, the CIA was weakened. Which weakens us all.

And just as the bell rings, we see Newt is just the same big flirt he’s always been. Make up your mind already.
