Bush Buying Into Global Warming Fraud

Posted by Joshua Price on April 14, 2008

The liberalization of George W. Bush is sweeping in nature. It appears that he has bought into the idea that humans are contributing significantly to the so-called global warming problem.

Read what our “conservative” President is considering:

President Bush is poised to change course and announce as early as this week that he wants Congress to pass a bill to combat global warming, and will lay out principles for what that should include.

“This is an attempt to move the administration and the party closer to the center on global warming. With these steps, it is hoped that the debate over this is over, and it is time to do something,” said an administration source close to the White House who is familiar with the planning and who said to expect an announcement this week.

This is an attempt to move Bush’s global warming policy towards the “center?” There’s no such thing. Let’s call it what it is: Bush has apparently bought into Al Gore’s fraud and has moved, not to the “center,” but to the left on this and many other issues.

Now it looks like the proposal has not been finalized but there’s talk that may it include the spectacularly useless carbon credits program. You know, that program that allows so-called “green” companies who have a surplus in carbon credits to sell them to companies who need them.

It’s unbelievable. It’s like every issue that comes about is another opportunity to for George W. Bush to stick it to the conservative movement.

I’m sure we just lost of half of our readers with that statement, but it’s true.

Let’s take the issues of the day and where Bush stands on them:

  • immigration: he’s for amnesty and essentially wide-open borders
  • spending: he’s spent more than Bill Clinton, and yes you Bush apologists, that’s excluding spending on the War and defense measures
  • global warming: it looks like he’s moved to the Left on this issue as well

Yet we continue to be told that Bush may not be a conservative leader, but that he is a conservative.

Can anyone who can look at things objectively and not through the rose-colored, blindly optimistic glasses of the Republican Party tell me that they think Bush is a conservative?

I take no pleasure in saying this, but with each passing day and news story I truly believe that in 5-10 years we will look back and say that George W. Bush, Karl Rove, Ken Mehlman, and Mel Martinez destroyed the Republican Party by eternally alienating the conservative base the Party was built upon.

John Boehner is Clueless

Posted by Joshua Price on April 9, 2008

I love it when so many Republicans say that they get “it” with respect to why the Party got destroyed in the 2006 midterms, but they really don’t understand. Or they do understand but simply don’t care because they’re part of the problem.

Listen to what House Minority Leader John Boehner has to say about John McCain and the Republican outlook in November:

“When I talk to my members, and you look at the polling and you get out on the road and listen to people, there’s no question McCain is bringing all the Republicans together, and frankly a big chunk of independents,” Mr. Boehner told a gathering of journalists last week.

Really? He’s bringing Republicans together? I don’t know who he’s talking to but I’m not hearing that. In fact, I think the evidence shows quite the opposite going on.

I think his comments about independents tell you the Republicans strategy for John McCain: get a big enough chunk of independents to offset the loss of most of the conservative base, and in the process, continue moving the Party further to the Left.

I’m telling you that’s the philosophy of the current leadership in the Party–both in terms of Party officers and elected leaders.

It stems from the Karl Rove model of an overextended, unprincipled, impractical Republican Party.

The ‘isms’ That Bedevil Bush

Posted by Joshua Price on March 25, 2008

The following is the link to Pat Buchanan’s great new article. It’s relatively short, but more importantly, well worth the read. It’s a wonderful history lesson.

Senator Jim DeMint Interview

Posted by Joshua Price on March 4, 2008

I had the great pleasure yesterday of interviewing South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint. Senator DeMint is a true, traditional conservative fighting for conservatism in the increasingly liberal and socialist Senate.

He has coauthored a wonderful new book, Why We Whisper: Restoring Our Right To Say It’s Wrong. It’s a must-read for any traditional conservative. We have also linked to the Senator’s blog, whywewhisper.com, under the blogroll.

We’re going to try something new. In the next month or so we will moving to a new site address. The site is up right now, but it doesn’t look how it will in several weeks.

The new site allows us to post audio of our interviews, so you can find the interview with Senator DeMint here:

REMEMBER: the new site, other than this interview with Senator DeMint, will not be up and running for several more weeks.

Big Thanks to the Dawson County GOP

Posted by Joshua Price on February 20, 2008

I had the pleasure last night of speaking at the Dawson County, Georgia Republican Party meeting. The Dawson County GOP is chaired by fellow co-founder of this blog, Clint Smith.

I had great time. I met some wonderful, committed activists who understand what needs to happen to get the Republican Party and America back on track.

I want thank them for their warm reception and hospitality.
