In honor of the Seahawk’s first Super Bowl, we re-publish this article from 2011

THE GINGRICH BETRAYAL

Steve Largent, 1995, when confronted by Newt Gingrich, who was furious that Largent had voted against Newt’s bureaucratic pork bill:

“The Speaker tonight talked about the eleven of us letting the team down. The more significant question and the question that never gets asked in Washington, D.C., is whose teams are we on?”

Editor’s Note: Today is the 40th March for Life.  The following is from an unexpected source, Business Insider (!)

protest-pope-condomPainting the Catholic Church as “out of touch” is like shooting fish in a barrel, what with the funny hats and gilded churches. And nothing makes it easier than the Church’s stance against contraception.

Here’s the thing, though: the Catholic Church is the world’s biggest and oldest organization. It has buried all of the greatest empires known to man, from the Romans to the Soviets. It has establishments literally all over the world, touching every area of human endeavor. It’s given us some of the world’s greatest thinkers, from Saint Augustine on down to René Girard. When it does things, it usually has a good reason. Everyone has a right to disagree, but it’s not that they’re a bunch of crazy old white dudes who are stuck in the Middle Ages.

RLCThe best of all its possible futures passed before the Washington State Republican Party in the guise of visions cast the weekend of January 25th – 27th   All the elements that will decide the Republican fate (what the Party will do, and receive in return for their efforts) were on display. But since those visions were cast in two conferences, held simultaneously (as luck would have it) in two hotels in two cities (NOT as should happen, in a common State Convention), not one single person actually saw them all.

wilbur micWe know through private channels that Washington State Republican Party Chair Kirby Wilbur always carries a concealed firearm.

However we know from public experience, that he does not, in practice, support the right of others to do so.

The Second Amendment was one of many casualties of Kirby’s stewardship of the 2012 Washington State Republican Convention and Caucus process.

Mr. Wilbur, in every possible way, treated that process as though its sole purpose was to anoint the candidacy of Mitt Romney and Rob McKenna by any means necessary.

We threw it all away.

For as long as we have been a nation, there has always existed a remnant of patriots, willing, anxious, to defend Constitutional Government– freedom as conceived by our founders.  (more…)

We’re waiting for the next Reagan.

The Republican Party has spent half a lifetime waiting. The Catholics and Evangelicals have waited. The NRLC and the NRA and all the ancillary organizations with an “R” in their acronyms, and the think tanks and interest groups have waited. The aging Republican regulars who remember the 1980 election and the three-network-media-monopoly and the ride of the Gipper to save us all, have waited as their hair turns grey… (more…)
