Core Values (If Applicable)

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

If you’ve ever wondered why RINO politicians never seem to advance conservative goals, but always seem comfortable surrendering to Liberals, this might help.

I cut Republicans a lot of slack – but it gets depressing sometimes.

  1. Ha! A lobbyist for Google criticizes Trump?! How f-ing stupid are people on the left to believe someone that represents an entity worth billions of dollars, advocating censorship and sucking tax payer’s money to do it?

  2. I am afraid that Trump and his followers are the RINO’s. And that is a good thing. The GOP as it has been will never be again, and that, too, is a good thing.
    The Mensheviks never had a chance against the Bolsheviks.

  3. There are millions of Conservatives across America who feel abandoned by the GOP. Their natural party took a nasty journey out to the wilder fringes of far right, starting in earnest about fifteen years ago and with the Trump administration literally becoming a National Socialist party.

    These disenfranchised Conservatives want their party back and if it takes three terms out in the political wilderness for the GOP to rediscover what it is to be a Conservative then so be it. In the meantime expect Democrat administrations. Decent America is disgusted and there aren’t enough National Socialists in America for that to ever happen again.

    (apologies for the double post — moderation purgatory)

  5. Emery, once again, you are projecting with the hope that your lies will become reality. And, you deserve to be in permanent moderation.

  6. The roots of the problem stem back to Reagan, and perhaps even Nixon. The party leaders widened the Republican party — which had until then been for small and efficient government, and for responsible fiscal policy — to include the southern Democrats, bringing evangelical Christianity and racism into the Party. Don’t forget Ronald Reagan’s comment along the lines (and I’m paraphrasing) that the ten most scary words in the English language were “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.”

    But we shouldn’t underestimate the effect of the Iraq War either, and its spawning of the Tea Party. This moved the Republicans decisively away from competent administration and responsible economic policy toward confrontation (cliff-hangers on approving the debt ceiling) and political fundamentalism. This created fertile ground for a demagogue — and Trump just happened to come along.

    I’m not optimistic for the long term future of the Republican Party. It is likely to have seven lean years ahead of it, and then some, before it either fades into the sunset or (more likely) reinvents itself as a more inclusive political movement.

  7. Regarding ostensible Republicans coming out against Trump and for Biden…..have they taken a look at Biden’s C.V. and the Democratic Party Platform? Do they not know what Democratic Party control of the country would do?

    I’m fine with understanding that they may not be conservative Republicans, but if they’re on board with Slow Joe, I can’t even figure out how they go there even if they’re moderate to somewhat liberal. There is a point where you leave “moderate” and go to “brain dead”, and Kasich and his ilk have clearly crossed that line.

  8. Remarkable to see the the guys who’ve been in power for 3.5 years trying to blame the state of the nation on Biden.

    Yes, we know — our current problems are due to some guy in his basement in Maryland.

    Nothing at all to do with our actual “leader” who said he alone could Make America Great!

    I guess his base will believe any old BS.

  9. Ha! Emery, that’s very funny coming from an useful idiot like you, that believed B.S. from a Manchurian candidate and his corrupt cabal, from 2008 – 2016. I am becoming more convinced that you are a Chinese bot.

    I would be curious to see if you can FACTUALLY articulate how Trump has harmed YOU personally. I suspect that, like the rest of your inane posts, you got nothin’ and are content spewing what you can find with a quick Google search.

    By the way, have you returned your stimulus check yet, hypocrite?

  10. You’ve got that reversed. It’s remarkable to see people who’ve been in power 20-40 years, blame all the problems on someone who has been in power only 3.5 years. As if these problems suddenly, magically appeared 3.5 years ago.

    To say otherwise is intellectually dishonest. Which is the MO of the left.

  11. Best comment from Republicans in months: “QAnon was “dangerous lunacy” that had no place in politics. Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, went even further: “QAnon is nuts. And real leaders [would] call conspiracy theories conspiracy theories. If Democrats take the Senate in November, blow up the filibuster and pack the Supreme Court, garbage like this will be a big part of why they won.”

  12. I don’t understand what exactly is dangerous or lunacy about QAnon. What little I’ve seen of the oracle which is Q is written such that it can mean anything. They get little if any mainstream coverage beyond name-calling, so whatever it is that they are up to is not widely known. Name-calling and repeated name-calling is not an argument.

    Perhaps those obsessed by QAnon might remember the Streisand Effect.

  13. I saw Qanon described as “Trailer Park Scientology”

    If there actually were Satan worshipping paedophiles in charge of world governments, the QAnon people would be the last to expose them.

  14. “If there actually were Satan worshipping paedophiles in charge of world governments . . . ”

    Bill Clinton took 26 trips to Epstein’s underage sex slave island.

  15. Good Lord, how I hate the wheezy wing of the Republican Party. I remember being a at District Convention, wasting a perfectly good Saturday, to vote on resolutions for the platform. In the middle of it, Rudy Boschwitz parades in to urge the convention to endorse his hand-picked staff member for an office, and then exhorted us to “leave your single-issues outside the door and come together.” I was already in line at the microphone and I kind of lost it. I asked, “Which one of these 100+ resolutions we’ve already voted on today is my single issue? And now you want us to approve your prince-ling just on your say-so?” Well, that was fun. Not as much fun, though, as at another party convention when Arne Carlson made a surprise appearance to bless us with a speech. I applauded when he took the stage (as a former Toastmaster, we always applaud), but I didn’t stand up like all of those around me did. This was not well received by my neighbors who started making “stand up” gestures toward me. There may have been other gestures exchanged over the next few minutes.

  16. “Bill Clinton took 26 trips to Epstein’s underage sex slave island.”

    Good tip Joe! I most definitely will not be voting for Bill Clinton!!

  17. Glad we agree that Q-Anon was correct about world leader pedophiles.

    What else are they correct about?

  18. QAnon isn’t completely malarkey about a child-molestation ring in federal government. There is a figure in the administration who “likes them on the young side” and is a known associate of others who have arranged sex with children.

  19. Well Emery, if it’s such a “conspiracy theory”, what are you left wingers and RINO Ben Sasse worried about? Heck, the media just started mention it and it has allegedly been going on for three years. And, there are far more Democrats than Clinton that visited Epstein island. Further, me thinks thou dost protest too much.

  20. It is not possible to reconcile Emery’s 8/28 8:57 with his 8/27 11:22. What, did he forget what he said, overnight? Not likely.

    I conclude they were not posted by Emery. They were posted by Joe Biden, from his basement. And yes, he did forget what he said, overnight. New day, new script. Easy, when your mind is always a blank slate.
