For a Republican to win the Presidency he has to motivate the Conservative Base to come out and vote. Dole couldn’t, McCaine couldn’t, Romney couldn’t. The only reason Bush won a second term was it was referendum on the War.
The Fat man could NEVER do it. The base just came out and sent a message to stop what Obama and the Democrats have been doing. Period. That is why they gave them a strong majority in both Houses.
So today what does Christie come out and say.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Making a rare Capitol Hill appearance, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Monday encouraged the GOP’s newest members of Congress to embrace compromise and common ground as they shift to a governing role following their party’s midterm rout.
The Republican governor, who is contemplating a 2016 presidential bid, addressed newly elected House Republicans and their spouses during a closed-door orientation luncheon inside the Capitol. The often-outspoken Christie declined to answer questions from reporters afterward, but attendees said offered a distinctly bipartisan tone.
“He did talk about compromise and finding common ground,” said incoming Rep. Tom MacArthur, R-N.J.
Stay in the contaminated swamps of New Jersey you Blow Hard!

The Dr. Without Borders who just died in Nebraska of Ebola is a demonstration of why if we allow these people back into our countries they should be quarantined for the full 41 days recommended by the WHO.
Dr. Martin Salia’s Ebola test came back negative, his friends and colleagues threw their arms around him. They shook his hand. They patted him on the back. They removed their protective gear and cried. But when his symptoms remained nearly a week later, Salia took another test, on Nov. 10. This one came back positive, sending the Sierra Leonean doctor with ties to Maryland on a desperate, belated quest for treatment and forcing the colleagues who had embraced him into quarantine.
The good Dr. is now dead. He died today of Ebola.
This could just as easily have been the result of allowing that stupid Nurse to roam free that is suing because NJ and Maine had the gall to want her quarantined. These Dr’s and Nurse’s that are doing wonderful work placing themselves in harms way treating this disease should be commended for their service. They should then be placed in a space capsule for 41 days.
The majority of the people that have comeback with the disease are Dr.s and Nurses. They represent the kindest of heart and a danger to the General Public.

When you dismantle your national borders and millions of immigrants pour in, there are severe consequences. One of the first areas to experience these consequences are the parts of the public sector most exposed to this demographic change.
Iain Duncan Smith, the work and pensions secretary, has said that non-English-speaking children are changing the character of British schools, as Ukip looks likely to gain its second MP in the Rochester and Strood by-election. The senior Conservative said an academic report setting out the billions of pounds that EU migrants had added to the economy was “silly” because it only looks at immigration in terms of the financial benefits to the economy.
His comments represent the latest escalation in the negative rhetoric about immigration as the Tories try to stem the flow of supporters to Nigel Farage’s party, which wants radically lower migration and a withdrawal from the European Union. On BBC Radio 5 Live’s Pienaar’s Politics, Duncan Smith said: “I thought there was a silly report, recently, in the last couple of weeks, that said: ‘Oh look in tax terms they have contributed more.’ First of all you have to take them all the way through to when they get older and they actually start taking from the state. You don’t account for the fact that often in many communities they literally change the schooling because so many people arrive not speaking English. You have then got problems you know with local services, transport all that kind of stuff.”
Here’s an example of what he means…
There are now ten schools in England without a single pupil who speaks English as his or her first language. Research reveals that there are almost 600 primary schools where 70 per cent or more of youngsters normally speak a foreign language. Across the country, one in seven pupils aged 4-11 does not have English as the first language, which is the equivalent of 466,620 children.
The change is picked up first in Primary schools, and then in Secondary schools. It is felt in the likes of the NHS. It is manifest in the Housing sector. Slowly but surely the radical demographic change will alter the face of this country forever and irreversibly. In some ways it may be too late. UKIP recognise this and so does an increasingly alarmed section of the UK population.

The above image says it all, really. It’s from the latest horror show brought to us by Islamic State and shows 16 Jihadi preparing to decapitate captured Syrian soldiers. It is suggested that two Frenchmen, a German and a British man are amongst the executioners.
Where to start?
Well, what is it that makes these men want to kill fellow human beings in SUCH a barbaric fashion? This sort of mass killing is something that humanity should have left behind CENTURIES ago. Why is it that ISLAM brings us this grotesquerie? And what do we do about it?
I believe Islamic State should be pulverised into the dirt of IRAQ and SYRIA. As you know, that is not happening and so whilst it seems IS is suffering setbacks in IRAQ, it maintains its Syrian fortress. Obama’s hopeless prevarication over Syria is central to the problem here and there seems little evidence this will change anytime soon. There is also the question of whether we should send in…gasp — ground troops. I can see a case for this – but only if the mission is the utter destruction of IS. It’s not about Nation building, it’s about IS demolition. However I think our political leaders have no desire to contemplate this and so IS can continue to prosper, propagate and kill.

I think this is something that makes me more sad than angry.
A memorial to three Scottish soldiers who were murdered by the IRA has been attacked for a 19th time, the Royal British Legion has said. IRA Slogans were painted on the monument at White Brae, Ligoniel, on the outskirts of north Belfast and two wreaths were removed.
The monument is a tribute to teenage brothers John and Joseph McCaig, and their colleague Dougald McCaughey, 23. The off-duty fusiliers were shot dead at the site by the IRA in March 1971.
James Wright, chairman of Oldpark and Cavehill branch of the Royal British Legion, said: “Just like the cowards who in the dead of night murdered John, Joe and Dougald, these lowlife cowards cannot show their faces, they have to carry out their attacks under the cover of darkness. “As a branch we will not be deterred in ensuring that the murder of these young soldiers who were off-duty and out socialising in Belfast will never be forgotten.”
I fully understand what Mr Wright means, this is indeed the act of craven cowards, as was the brutal murder of these three young men in the 1st place. It’s a terrible thought that some other young men feel the need to deface this small memorial – but as I have pointed out over the years evil DOES stalk this world and it can get a hold in young impressionable minds and result in the likes of this desecration. I hope those doing this can find a little decency in their own lives and leave the memory of these three Fusiliers alone.

At the ripe age of 74, I honestly thought that there were no more surprises in my life, but there is, indeed; no fool like an old fool.
My wife’s mother died a couple of weeks ago, and the wider family gathered for her cremation, without my presence: because my wife is ill, and she depends upon me for everything; but my eldest son and my daughter attended both the cremation service and the gathering afterwards.
One of the things produced to celebrate my mother-in-law’s life was a video compilation of photographs taken over her life-span, which was 94 years; and I received a copy. I played the whole show, and suddenly, I was taken back in time to the evening that I first met my future wife. One family photo, which I had never seen before, showed her in the midst of the photo, but she was wearing the very dress which she wore when we first met. We met in the Empire Ballroom in Leicester Square; we met, and I knew within ten seconds that this was, indeed, the girl for me. The smile on her face in the photo was the same as I remembered watching in fascination as we danced, and talked, and danced again. The video photo is unavailable at present, but I shall find it, and I shall hold it as close as the woman whose smile still reminds me why we married, all those years ago.
The ravages of illness have not been kind to my love, but, occasionally, very occasionally, I see the light in her eyes which attracted me to the woman who has borne my children and been my companion for over forty-seven years.

I saw this and cracked up.
Hollande raises specter of war over climate change
PARIS (Reuters) – French President Francois Hollande said failure to address global warming could lead to war, and called on G20 countries to act ahead of a climate change conference in Paris next year.
“We will meet again in Paris to sign a global agreement that will prevent the planet from experiencing global warming of as much as three or four degrees (Celsius), which could lead to catastrophe, if not war,” Hollande said at the G20 summit in Brisbane.
“One way to prevent conflicts and catastrophe is by taking decisions.”
Hollande hopes countries will sign binding agreements to limit global warming to two degrees at the conference, which will run from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11, 2015.
At the G20 summit, other nations overrode host Australia’s attempts to keep climate change off the agenda and agreed to call for strong action with the aim of adopting a binding protocol at the Paris conference.
The shear insanity of these fools never ends. They will by decree stop the temperature from rising or falling. Man is an arrogant beast, and the French have always been the icing on the cake in that category.

One of the things the Democrats and their Pundits have been ranting for quite some time is that if the Republicans gained control of both the House and the Senate the first thing they would do is Impeach President Obama.
Now there are a ton of things that the President could be impeached for, Trey Gowdy summed up the simplest reason not to impeach him in one sentence.
Host Bill O’Reilly asked Gowdy about Judge Andrew Napolitano’s position that the President’s plans for amnesty of illegal immigrants is an impeachable offense because it bypasses Congress.
“Do you see anybody going down that road in the House?” O’Reilly asked.
“Have you met Joe Biden?” was Gowdy’s one-sentence response to that.
There will be no impeachment. Hell we’ll be lucky if they use their real power, the power of the purse to stop the Presidents unconstitutional behavior over the next two years. I’ll believe that when I see it.

African style democracy.
Grace Mugabe has been called many things since the moment when, barely out of her teens, she caught the eye of the president of Zimbabwe as she tapped away in his typing pool. Now his wife, she styles herself ‘Amai’ (mother) for her supporters but, behind her back, is derided as Gucci Grace and The First Shopper, a reflection of her extravagant spending in designer shops around the world despite the struggles of her country.
Others simply call her Dis Grace, especially those who believe she forced her 90-year-old husband Robert to remain in power so she could plunder Zimbabwe’s diamond wealth to fund her overseas shopping trips. But now a nervous nation fears she could soon have a new title: President. For this reviled woman has stepped, in her costly Ferragamo shoes, into the political arena, exploding a titanic power struggle to succeed the increasingly doddery despot who has ruled Zimbabwe so disastrously for more than three decades.
So, is Grace poised to follow Robert? Is Africa CAPABLE of having representative democracy or is tyranny and dictatorship just so much easier?
