Ten-Point Advice for the Republican Party

 

The Republican Party is licking its wounds while the big bosses retreat to the strategy rooms to formulate the turnaround, much like they did after Clinton won in 1992. But they’re doing it all wrong, starting with the players. It’s certain path toward self-destruction which will please a lot of Democrats. After all, the more Democrats who are elected into power, the more the presidency becomes a rubber stamp dictatorship.

As an Independent, and certainly not running for office, I happily reject those confining pigeonholes that politicians cannot avoid. As NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, sometimes the Democrats have good ideas, sometimes the republicans have good ideas. I generally lean toward Democrats regarding social issues, and lean toward the Republicans, most strongly, in issues of national security. What’s most essential, is that we maintain checks and balances. With a one-sided government, that’s gone.

I do hope for a Republican resurgence in the 2010 off-year election, otherwise they will have no more voice than a whisper in the wind.

From my perspective, the Republican Party needs to follow some tough advice if they have any hope to regenerate in the future.

1) Dump Dick Cheney. Get him off talk shows, TV sound bites, debates, or another or forum dealing with the party’s future. Whether you like him or not, he’s part of the old republican machine that no one trusts, dating back to the 1970s. Whether deserved or not, his name is mud with the majority of Americans.

2) Obama’s election success can be summed up in a single word: Bush. Thus, Jeb Bush should crawl in a Texas oil hole with bro and his pop when all the 2010 planning goes into effect. He might be a good guy, but the name “Bush” is a guaranteed liability in any future American election.

3) Nobody wants to hear what Sarah Palin has to say. She’s a reminder of what went wrong with John McCain’s campaign. Party leadership should keep her in Wasilla, smiling waving winking attending soccer games like a good mom. Folks in the media rarely pursue her with tough informational questions about international jihad, nuclear warheads, and international commerce, and that’s because she’s a lightweight. Cute yes. Conservative, Yes. But not an asset to the party on a grand scale.

4) The party leadership should publically announce that no radio entertainer is the dominant head of a national party, nor ever will be. Those who cite Rush Limbaugh as the saviour of the Republican Party are bogging the party into the depths of right-wing extremism, the very mantra they need to shed. And even if he’s right a lot of the time, it doesn’t matter. Perception is 99 percent of reality.

5) Get with the changing times and broaden appeal. Study the demographics. The days of Goldwater and Reagan are gone. What once was a nation where 85 percent of the voters were of European descent, today that number has dropped to 70 percent.

6) Republicans should be desperately reaching for attracting the youth, a huge voting block clearly locked into the democratic side.

7) Show that the Republican Party is flexible enough to modify a position. Abortion comes to mind, which— in the international scheme of things — is the least important issue I can think of, yet guides millions of one-issue voters and ill-defines the party in the minds of many. Revise the platform, to exclude restrictions to rape victims, mentally unstable victims, health of the mother.

8) Revamp the party’s image. People like Hannity and Limbaugh who continually jackhammer terms like “Conservatism” and “Judea-Christian values” tend to be more divisive than inclusive. They sound great, and may be well-intended but it’s the same old broken record. The party needs accomplishments, not adjectives.

9) Politicians should fly commercial whenever possible, attend town hall meetings, reach out to grass roots, and show the American people they are willing to make concessions to improve America.

10) Out with the old, in with the new. Highlight fresh, bright new thinkers, and include minorities, such as Michael Steele and J.D. Watts. New leadership should be cherry-picked from the ranks of governors, who — without a sentatorial/congressional record — are able to distance themselves from the Bush years. Names like Mark Sanford, of South Carolina, Rick Perry of Texas, and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, come to mind.

Republicans can do it. One elder statesman is worthy of consultation, but nothing more than that. Newt Gingrich is probably one of the most astute politicians of the last 30 years, and his wisdom should be sought after.

Obama’s election was as much a passionate statement against the Bush regime, as it was an endorsement for the candidate.

 

THE TRUE WAR WITHIN THE BORDERS

 

 
“These home-grown terrorists may prove to be as dangerous as groups like al Qaeda, if not more so.”
 

 

                                                    — FBI Director Robert Mueller

 

 

 

 

America remains comatose as radical Islamist forces continue to invade and set up their war machine right under our noses in the form of terrorist training camps and extremist enclaves inside the borders of the U.S.

Here we are, sending our military forces overseas into two other countries fighting a war against dangerous jihadists while we pay no attention to them as they operate in New York, Virginia and Georgia.

According to the justice department, there are at least 35 enclaves in America, or Muslim-only camps, that have set up under the guise of “religious retreats.” Much has been written about Islamberg in mid-state New York, where nearby Americans have heard gunshots and are in fear of going anywhere near the compound. These enclaves are, and have been formed and operated under the leadership of known radical Islamists, one of whom is considered responsible for the beheading of journalist, Daniel Pearl.

The U.S. government is doing nothing, but allowing these camps to flourish and continue broadening their appeal to the haters of America, the very enemy we are fighting abroad who want to see our nation succumb to Islam.

I urge everyone to obtain a copy of a DVD titled, Homegrown Jihad, The Terrorist Camps Around U.S. Click here: TERRORIST TRAINING VIDEO  Produced by the Christian Action Network, it is a chilling documentary that no words of mine can adequately describe.

Fact is folks, as I have said before, while we chase the bad guys half way around the world, they are sneaking into our back yard with no other purpose but to destroy us from within.

There is a ton of information and literature regarding this horrifying cancer spreading in the body of our land. Here are a few links to check out:

Other than a very few commentators, the media has been virtually mum about this. Some readers will dismiss Sean Hannity as a one-sided right winger but that would be a mistake in this case. This 6 minute segment of his Fox Network report provides unmistakable clarity of the existing danger.

Our enemies have declared, in writing, and in their speeches, that they will destroy America, not with terror and overseas war, but from within. And we’re letting it happen.

What can we do about it? Start demanding action from our government representatives. Stop burying our heads in the sand. Stop making excuses for our enemies. Stop thinking it’s not our problem. Stop thinking it’s only a problem for the military. We are the people who the government is responsible to. Exercise your power. Start demanding action from our government representatives. Deport our enemies, freeze assets of our enemies. Follow the money trail to the source of funding for our enemies. Identify our enemies, not as terrorists, but as jihadists: Radical Islamists. You cannot win a war if we are afraid to identify the enemy.

“Terror” is not an enemy.

Recently, our president traveled abroad and announced to the world that we have never been at war with Islam. Good choice of words, because he left out the term “Radical” Islam, for he surely know they have declared war on us. The very existence of the Muslim Brotherhood is based on the goal of destroying the west and replacing our way of life with Islam. This president, and the last president must know this, it’s written into their charter documents.

Here is a portion of a document known as the “General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” authored by the Muslim Brotherhood in which their objectives are clearly stated: (The “Group” meaning the massive team already in North America)

“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’…The Ikhwan (Brothers) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
 
 

 

Anyone unable to understand that?  Is that unclear?

Please tell me, if that is not a declaration of war.

I did not make that up. I did not write that. They did. It’s all spelled out throughout the Internet, if anyone should choose to check it out in many available sites. It’s an integral part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s master plan, which is the largest extremist organization in the world, operating in no less than 70 countries, under which the more familiar organizations operate, such as CAIR, Muslims of America, MSA (Muslim Students of America), Hamas, Hezbollah, al Qaeda, and much more.

The American enclaves are a product of the Muslims of America (MOA) organization, which is a product of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Here’s one site, familiar to all: Click here: Muslim Brotherhood – Wikipedia

Here’s another analysis of the MB goals and objectives: Click here

Then, there is the document, authored by the same group, which was unearthed in 2001, called “The Project.” It spells out the strategy by which they intend on making this happen.

I’ve written about it before. I can’t emphasize enough, how critical this is to America, yet our government and the media ignore it as though it were nothing. Michelle Obama’s dress style makes more news, than the war strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood.

If you failed to check it out before, here’s a link to “The Project”: Click here: FrontPage

When our great grandkids eventually live under the Islamic flag, and our women are subjugated to near-slave status, and their kids are brainwashed to hate Jews and other non-believers, and Sharia law prevails in Tulsa, Orlando and Walla Walla, there will be no one to blame but Americans of this generation.
