Are “Electable” Candidates Actually Electable? Part I:

Presidential Primaries 1948-2012

A Brief History of Electability

One of the siren songs raised in favor of moderate and establishment-backed candidates every primary election season is that they are “electable” and their opponents are not. Sometimes, this is frankly code for “not like those conservatives.” But if the idea that conservatives are unelectable is a fallacy, so too is the reflexive assumption that any candidate described as “electable” is actually the opposite, or is not any sort of conservative. History reminds us that good candidates win and bad ones lose, and while ideology can matter more or less depending where and when the election is held, neither conservatives nor moderates have any monopoly on winning elections. And if you look at the history of failed GOP “electability” candidates, you will find that they were usually moderates who faced significantly weaker and/or non-conservative opponents.

Let’s take a two-part walk through the history of electability arguments, starting with a review of the GOP primaries from 1948 to 2012. In the second part, I’ll look at statewide swing-state races over the past decade to consider what kinds of Republican candidates actually do win contested elections.

Anonymous Open Letter :

Anonymous and the American Militia Should Unite


8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

The fall of the public sphere

Political elites have denigrated and abandoned the public.

Question Is : Morals-Have we Lost them ?

The Need for Thorns

And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

Hacking your head: How cyber criminals use social engineering

Useful information for those of us who live and die by our computers.
By Wendy Zamora 
Social engineering is nothing new. It's a tool of psychological manipulation that's been used since the dawn of man. Why? To influence people into taking action that might not be in their best interest.

Sometimes it's fairly harmless, like a child sweet-talking his mom in order to get extra candy. (I'm a victim of this one.) Many times, however, social engineering is used for nefarious purposes.

There are classic examples of social engineering at play throughout human history. Confidence tricks were first used by charmers in the 19th century to con people into trusting others with their valuables. (They should not have trusted…the charmers made off with the goods.) Psychological manipulation, otherwise known as propaganda, influenced droves of people during World War II to go out and buy war bonds. And advertising subtly hints that you're not pretty enough until you buy this product.

Social engineering taps into the human psyche by exploiting powerful emotions such as fear, urgency, curiosity, sympathy, or the strongest feels of them all: the desire for free stuff.

Which is why cyber criminals have caught on.

Cyber crooks use this dangerous weapon to get at the weakest link: us. They know that the easiest way to penetrate a system is to go after the user, not the computer. "Attacking the human element has always been a favorite," says Jean-Phillip Taggart, Senior Security Researcher at Malwarebytes. "Why use some hard technical flaw to acquire a password when you can simply ask the user for it?"

In fact, psychological cyber attacks are on the rise. "We are seeing an increase of blended attacks that rely on a combination of social engineering and malicious software," says Taggart. For example, a popular social engineering tactic is the technical support scam. An alert pop-up will appear on the screen that tells the user he is infected and needs to download a malware application. The user, fearful of infection, will download the fake antivirus or anti-malware application that is instead a vehicle for delivering malware.

So how are the criminals distributing their social engineering schemes? Here are some of the most prevalent forms of social engineering today.

Is Trump A Winner ,And Will He Keep His Word ?


From Dark to Light

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

Isaiah 9:2 KJV

Isaiah heard the Lord and prophesied

That Christ would come and dwell in Galilee,

But in a larger sense is magnified

To show when Jesus dwells in you and me.

Before He is our Savior all is dark

And we march in despair to ashy death.

When we go to the cross the Spirit's spark

Enlightens and begins eternal breath.

The light of Christ ignites within our soul

The moment we accept Him as our Lord,

And all our brokenness is then made whole,

In victory His love is our reward.

We once who walked in darkness shine His light,

For Jesus lives within us warm and bright.

Jesus is the Light of the world. Whoever follows Him shall not live in darkness, but will have the light of life. (John 8:12)

Where Will The "Republican Regular" Voters Go?

The Forgotten Voters


Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?

Will the Supreme Court Strike back...?

Will the Supreme Court

strike back at nObama’s overreach?

George Will

During Watergate, Henry Kissinger’s mordant wit leavened the unpleasantness: “The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.” President nObama often does both simultaneously, using executive authoritarianism to evade the Constitution’s separation of powers and rewrite existing laws.

We Don't need A Constitutional Convention !

I guess many people still don't understand the true nature and extent of the betrayal that is going on in our country. You prefer to trust the media types like Rush Limbaugh who carried water for George W. Bush for eight years while he got very rich off our stupidity, or Mark Levin who keeps pushing his books and his idea for a Convention of the States when the Constitution is not the problem... The people in power who don't like the Constitution are the problem..


But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Are We Becoming A Third World Country ?

“New Americans” in a Third World Country

Don't mess with the Donald

The Trumpster is clearly a master of turning the tables on you. Just ask Ted Cruz. The comment Cruz made about New York values was completely destroyed by Trump by his references to 911 even though it was clear to any conservative that Cruz was referring to the mayor's liberal bias and the fact that New Yorkers are for the most part a Democratic base. Even though Cruz's comments were twisted by Trump it just shows how masterful he is at the art of the debate.





One Thousand Horns

Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

1 Corinthians 1:10 KJV

The body of the Lord should work as one,

For schisms and divisions work against

The gospel and the work that should be done

To bring the lost sheep home who were dispensed.

If we're to be one body and one mind

We ought to preach and teach the selfsame thing.

It does no good if we are misaligned

Like walking when one foot is in a sling.

There is but one true Savior, Jesus Christ;

His words and actions clearly lead the way.

His awesome love for us was well sufficed;

He told us to repent and then obey.

If there's one thousand horns in battle blown,

Who knows which way to victory is known?

REMEMBER: These days it is SO important to understand and follow the guidance of the Holy Ghost.

Is the Spectre of Trump Haunting Davos?

By Patrick J. Buchanan
The lights are burning late in Davos tonight.
At the World Economic Forum, keynoter Joe Biden warned global elites that the unraveling of the middle class in America and Europe has provided “fertile terrain for reactionary politicians, demagogues peddling xenophobia, anti-immigration, nationalist, isolationist views.”

Evidence of a nationalist backlash, said Biden, may be seen in the third parties arising across Europe, and in the U.S. primaries.

But set aside Joe’s slurs — demagogues, xenophobia.

Who really belongs in the dock here? Who caused this crisis of political legitimacy now gripping the nations of the West?

Was it Donald Trump, who gives voice to the anger of those who believe themselves to have been betrayed? Or the elites who betrayed them?

Can that crowd at Davos not understand that it is despised because it is seen as having subordinated the interests of the nations and people in whose name it presumes to speak, to advance an agenda that serves, first and foremost, its own naked self-interest?

The political and economic elites of Davos have grow rich, fat and powerful by setting aside patriotism and sacrificing their countries on the altars of globalization and a New World Order.

No more astute essay has been written this political season than that of Michael Brendan Dougherty in “This Week,” where he describes how, 20 years ago, my late friend Sam Francis predicted it all.

In Chronicles, in 1996, Francis, a paleoconservative and proud son of the South, wrote:

“[S]ooner or later, as the globalist elites seek to drag the country into conflicts and global commitments, preside over the economic pastoralization of the United States, manage the delegitimization of our own culture, and the dispossession of our people, and disregard or diminish our national interest and national sovereignty, a nationalist reaction is almost inevitable and will probably assume populist form when it arrives. The sooner it comes, the better.”

What we saw through a glass darkly then, we now see face to face.

Is not Trump the personification of the populist-nationalist revolt Francis predicted?

2016’s resemblance to 1937

Lies My RINO Told Me :

Does Your Rino Lie to you ?

Every election cycle we hear the same arguments from the RINO/Establishment class. These claims cannot be justified in any way, and yet they are articles of faith, venerated words of wisdom, absolutes in the political world, and the Establishment asks us, nay demands, we follow their prescribed political program lest disaster overtake us. These overarching truths have little to no evidence to support them, and at this point, given the utter failure of their employment in the real world of electoral politics, can be classified as outright lies. Their purpose is to anesthetize the Conservative base, to lull us back into our collective intellectual coma, to force us off the field so that the elites can continue to run the show. What, pray tell, are these lies?Lie #1 - There is a Conservative Litmus test for candidates and we refuse to accept any but the most pure of heart.

BARRY THE MUSLIM MESSIAH, hasn't parted the great oceans he has divided the world with his SATANIC Vision of HELL to create the Greatest Divide this World has ever seen....This is a Prelude to something VERY UGLY....death of a Nation, a culture & its imperfect people....and yet so many people can't , won't & will never Hear the WAR DRUMS of DEATH as they come knocking on their door...

No Expiration Date

Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

The Elevated Fence Sitter and Tinkerer of Both Pastures

Take caution in your decisions and choices..... as a child of God, you can't sit on the fence and pick what you like from both pastures.... you can't sit on the fence and claim God is master in your life one minute, then the next, glorify a man or woman's changes that go against the foundations of God in the other pasture. You can't sit on the fence and jump from side to side as it suits your own needs and wants. You can't pick one grape from the cluster of God's knowledge and ignore the rest when it benefits your own daily life and is not obedient to God. To God, fence sitting is abominable. It elevates self over obedience to God alone.




Isn't it time people asked a very simple question....Just name me those who have PROSPERED & Made REAL Gains in the last 8 years...crap make that since Reagan?......Well it certainly was not the MYTHICAL Middle Class....or the CHRISTIAN Community...they've gone the way of the DODO BIRD....and Extinction is imminent .....

But if you want to look at the Corporate SOCIALISTS like SOROS, GATES, BUFFETT & the NWO ILLUMINATI & the GROWING PARASITE Culture or SLAVE CLASS....You've nailed it....And just at HITLER wanted to do, they have enlisted the MUSLIM PIGS to be the Henchmen & Executioners....

It would seem to me we were so smug, so smart, so self-righteous that we've willingly committed Cultural Mass Suicide...WITH centuries of HISTORY & LESSONS behind us it seems we didn't learn one damn thing...

Allow me to add this...if we continue to put CORRUPT ESTABLISHMENT CROOKS & CONS in the Government much less the White House the AMERICAN Public will be the Greatest Loser of all time...

Bill Maher: Islam Will Cost Democrats the Election

Nine times out of ten, listening to Bill Maher is about as much fun as getting a tooth drilled. But that tenth time…well, it gives you a little bit of hope for humanity. When Maher focuses on Islam and its compatibility with Western values, he hits the mark.

“The idea that when Syrian refugees come to European countries or America that they are going to fit in is a fantasy,” Maher said on his HBO program Friday night. He said that anyone who thought we could make people “who are not like us” embrace our cultural values was mistaken. “We saw this, just recently, in Cologne, Germany. When all the Syrian refugees were going to Europe, I wasn’t for it, and I think a lot of people are coming around to that position.”

Maher was referring to the shocking events of New Years’ Eve, when hundreds of German women were the victims of sexual assault. After the local government tried to cover it up, it emerged that many of the perpetrators were of North African origin. This put the spotlight on Chancellor Angela Merkel and her dedication to open Germany up to an endless flood of Syrian refugees.

Maher said that this issue was going to put Donald Trump in the White House if Democrats weren’t careful. “This is the one issue the Democrats are going to lose the election on,” he said.

Be Not Afraid

48 And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. 49 But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out: 50 For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid. 51 And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.

'When you investigate all scandals ... you find dead people'

It’s a sordid tale of two Bills: In both cases, dozens of women say they were sexually victimized by powerful men and threatened to stay silent about the traumatic assaults.

But there’s a crucial difference between the two scenarios involving actor and comedian Bill Cosby and former President Bill Clinton.

Is Donald Trump a Double-minded Man?

We all understand that politicians will be political, emphasizing one point to one audience and another point to another audience. We also understand that people’s views can genuinely change, including the views of politicians.

But when a political leader completely flip-flops on issues and then flip-flops again, the trustworthiness of that leader must be questioned.

Reworking the Constitution to Save the Constitution

My governor, the Honorable Greg Abbott of Texas, sallied forth the other day with a plan to revise the Constitution in the interest of returning power to the people. Because of this antique notion, whole cans of rhetorical trash have been emptied on my governor's head.

Feud: Trump and Cruz

Trump Hammers Cruz as 'Very Nasty Guy,' Threatens Birther Lawsuit 

Having been smacked around by Cruz over the so-called 'birther' issue on last week's debate stage, Donald Trump is turning to his Feuding 101 playbook: Personal insults. He previewed his character assault against Cruz last month ("maniac"), quickly calling off the rhetorical dogs when the Texas Senator assiduously adhered to his strategic nonaggression pact. But now that Cruz has thrown multiple punches in defense of his own constitutional eligibility to seek the presidency, Trump is unleashed:
