A Warning to French Republicans

Hat tip: My friend Bishop Daniel Rea
The good reverend responds to a question via email about his feelings on Cantors defeat.

Cantor and Boehner never were Republicans. They are simply big government liberals who just happened to occasionally vote for other big government ideas and fellow French Republican liberals with an (R) beside their names as opposed to the big government ideas and liberals with the (D) beside their name. Not conservatives or Republicans at all.  The party didn’t abandon them it is just in the process of returning to what it was always supposed to be – a party opposed to big government liberalism in all forms.  The Tea Party is simply the resurrection of the Reagan principals minus the French Republican support (read liberal Dems who became Republican in opposition to Carter).

You say Republicans are the opposite of what they were and so are liberals. Bear in mind that liberals were Republicans at one time. What was formerly liberal is now conservative. What was formerly conservative is now liberal. This is key to undertstanding what I am saying. Liberals were for free speech, the right to own guns, the right for people to work and live as they choose. Conservatives were the status quo. So are you now saying that conservatives are the new liberals.

The right to free speech, right to dissent, the right not to lose your privacy and live under the thumb of an ever watchful and restrictive government, the right to live as you wish, the right for each person to be an individual, not part of a group or a mindset. A small government that defends liberty of the people and huge government that invades every aspect of life with regulations. What kind of toilet we can buy. What light bulbs we can have in our homes. The kind of automobile we feel is best for our family. So if you believe in those things, why aren't you conservative?

I remember when liberals loved the term 'speaking truth to power.' Now they hate it since they have become the power and dissent has become almost tantamount to a crime. It is conservatives that feel uncomfortable with an intrusive authority, that mourn the fact that it is now permissible by law to kill an American citizen overseas if he is simply 'suspected' of being a terrorist and revoking his right of due process, of collecting info on American citizens, of bringing back 'the enemies list' and using government agencies as weapons against those who speak against you. Of turning over your well-being and allowing the government to decide how insurance should be administered and how much you should pay, and deciding when you have made 'enough' money and who you owe your excess to. Maybe it's liberals that have stopped moving forward.

Let us all recall a few facts. The Demcorat Party is the party of...
... Original wars of attrition begun on lies and doctored intelligence - Korea and Vietnam 

...The KKK ("the terrorist wing of the democrat party")
...Jim Crow
...The Confederacy
...Blowing up little black girls at church
...Bull Connor

As recently as the 1990's, the Democrat Party proudly placed a Grand Cyclops of the KKK, one Sen. Robert Byrd, 4th in line of presidential succession.
There is a saying "there is none so devout as the recently converted." I think it important the Republican Party make it a point to consistently remind people of this point. One cannot choose their own view of history and invent “facts” that are clearly lies. Lies not mistakes because lies are intentional and meant to mislead.
The Democrat Party is so racist they couldn't even pass civil rights legislation, even though they owned the presidency, House and Senate from 1960 to 1964. Kennedy was warned continually that he would divide the Democratic Party. Want to know who had their hands dripping with JFK's blood? Consider Bull Connor in league with Robert Byrd, Strom Thurmond, Geroge Wallace, and others.
This is the continuing, now 60 year democrat-manufactured slander that has gone unchallenged, and I suspect, intentionally taught in our schools, that the Republicans are home to Americas racists. This not only requires a willful denial of easily researchable history, but a deliberately malicious twisting of the truth. It's a lie. The democrats know it's a lie. Even though they know it's a lie, they gladly and joyfully repeat it, they even print this lie on protest signs declaring it.
Which party is following the Nazi, Marxist, Fascist, and Saul Alynsky practice of telling a lie long and loud enough that it is eventually accepted as the truth? Americas national tragedy on the issue of race, is the unwillingness to put a stop to the 60 year lie. Democrat Bull Connor as the Public Safety Commissioner of Birmingham, Alabama allowed freedom riders, reporters, and ministers in support of the Civil Rights movement to be beat for 15 minutes by the KKK before he allowed Birmingham police to take action to stop them. Democrat Governor of Alabama, George Wallace, who stood in the school doorway to prevent black children from attending school with white children. Strom Thurmond left the Democratic party in 1964 as a protest of LBJ's continued support for the Civil Rights Act. Thurmond continually voiced hate for JFK and MLK. Senator Robert Byrd held the titles of Grand Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of the KKK.

So in honesty of history and facts, which is the party of racism?  The Tea Party is bringing the party back to our true conservative roots grounded in Lincoln to Reagan minus the French Republicans who were never Republicans to begin with, I say good riddance to them and take Romney, Rubio, McConnell, Ryan, and Paul with them.

Obama Just Funded Terrorists For Years

Hat tip, my friend who is a senior intelligence official:

The Haqqanis could give a rat’s ass about prisoners, the Haqqani Network, a designated terrorist group in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and the five Guantanamo Bay prisoners who were freed in exchange for Bergdahl’s release.  The people that are holding Bergdahl wanted cash and someone paid it to them.  
The Taliban is an ideologically committed group, they say, while the Haqqani Network is better understood as a tribal crime syndicate using unrest in the region not to advance an Islamist agenda but to further own financial and political interests.
When Westerners talk [about the] Taliban, we tend to use it as a generic term.  Afghans are more likely to talk about the Haqqani Network versus the Quetta Shura also known as the Afghan Taliban versus the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan.
One of these things doesn’t add up.  If you were to put one of these Taliban prisoners with Haqqani in a room together, they’d beat the shit out of each other.
Haqqani benefits zero from the prisoner exchange.  Based on 10 years of working with those guys, the only thing that would make them move Bergdahl is money.
Whether the Qataris paid it, or some big oil sheik, or somebody used our petrodollars, there was a ransom paid in cash for each one of them, my guess somewhere in the round numbers of $5 or 6 million to get Bergdahl freed.

The groups do have links, but if Bergdahl was held by Haqqani and we released Quetta Shura, it seems Bergdahl’s captors were seeking something other than the Taliban prisoners, got paid off, and Obama simply used the trade as an excuse to release master terrorists from Gitmo.
