Put a fork in the Republicans

They're done. They're not only sell-outs, they're never going to be seriously competitive with the Democratic Party because apparently they have hamstrung themselves and agreed to never challenge voter fraud:
The following is compiled from an account on The Judicial View, a legal website specializing in court decision research and alerts, and from “Democratic National Committee v Republican National Committee,” Case No. 09-4615.

In 1981, during the gubernatorial election in New Jersey (NJ), a lawsuit was brought against the RNC, the NJ Republican State Committee (RSC), and three individuals (John A. Kelly, Ronald Kaufman, and Alex Hurtado), accusing them of violating the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA), 42 U.S.C. §§ 1971, 1973, and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States.

The lawsuit was brought by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the NJ Democratic State Committee (DSC), and two individuals (Virginia L. Peggins and Lynette Monroe).

The lawsuit alleged that:

    The RNC and RSC targeted minority voters in New Jersey in an effort to intimidate them.

    The RNC created a voter challenge list by mailing sample ballots to individuals in precincts with a high percentage of racial or ethnic minority registered voters. Then the RNC put the names of individuals whose postcards were returned as undeliverable on a list of voters to challenge at the polls.

    The RNC enlisted the help of off-duty sheriffs and police officers with “National Ballot Security Task Force” armbands, to intimidate voters by standing at polling places in minority precincts during voting. Some of the officers allegedly wore firearms in a visible manner.

To settle the lawsuit, in 1982 — while Ronald Reagan was President (1981-1989) — the RNC and RSC entered into an agreement or Consent Decree, which is national in scope, limiting the RNC’s ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the court’s approval in advance. The following is what the RNC and RSC, in the Consent Decree, agreed they would do:

[I]n the future, in all states and territories of the United States:

(a) comply with all applicable state and federal laws protecting the rights of duly qualified citizens to vote for the candidate(s) of their choice;

(b) in the event that they produce or place any signs which are part of ballot security activities, cause said signs to disclose that they are authorized or sponsored by the party committees and any other committees participating with the party committees;

(c) refrain from giving any directions to or permitting their agents or employees to remove or deface any lawfully printed and placed campaign materials or signs;

(d) refrain from giving any directions to or permitting their employees to campaign within restricted polling areas or to interrogate prospective voters as to their qualifications to vote prior to their entry to a polling place;

(e) refrain from undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial or ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision to conduct, or the actual conduct of, such activities there and where a purpose or significant effect of such activities is to deter qualified voters from voting; and the conduct of such activities disproportionately in or directed toward districts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations shall be considered relevant evidence of the existence of such a factor and purpose;

(f) refrain from having private personnel deputized as law enforcement personnel in connection with ballot security activities.

The RNC also agreed that the RNC, its agents, servants, and employees would be bound by the Decree, “whether acting directly or indirectly through other party committees.”

As modified in 1987, the Consent Decree defined “ballot security activities” to mean “ballot integrity, ballot security or other efforts to prevent or remedy vote fraud.”

Since 1982, that Consent Decree has been renewed every year by the original judge, Carter appointee District Judge Dickinson R. Debevoise, now 88 years old. Long retired, Debevoise comes back yearly for the sole purpose of renewing his 1982 order for another year.
Do you seriously believe any party that would agree to such handcuffs is even remotely capable of defending American interests?

Leftists actually think that whites and Asians commit a proportional amount of violent crime in San Fran but cops only arrest the 5% black portion of the population. Where would all the bodies go? Its like companies being attacked by the EEOC for checking up on illegal aliens fake documents more than the son of a coworker.

They are done and have been done for years. The "appeal to the moderates" wonks killed the party over the last 30 years.

I actually had an argument about how moderates were worthless recently. I pointed out that Romney won the moderates and lost the election.

I was countered that the independents weren't moderates but former Republicans who left the party. Obama actually won the moderate vote by 10-15%.

I pointed out that this makes my point even more relevant. Obama did literally nothing to try and court the moderate vote and won it handily. In addition the Republicans have diminished their own numbers by shooting at their allies.

This point sailed right over most of the people's heads.

This is just another example of my realization that the Republican party recognizes the left as its master. It accepts leftists' judgments about racism, feminism, immigration, spending, and apparently even voter fraud.

This explains the baffling willingness of mostly sane people to vote Democrat: you might as well. It just cuts out the middleman.

Here's some more evidence that conservatives are their own worst enemy. I have no opinion on what Maureen Mullarkey said or even her, but she was fired from First Things because she used too much rhetoric. Her style was in contrast to "reality-based conservatism" of First Things. First Things is clueless if they don't see the need for fiery rhetoric so long as it's aimed at the enemy. Like a good moderate they can't just let her go quietly they have dance on her on the way out. Do you know how many people on the left were impressed by this? Zero.

It's so typical. This blog has convinced me that half-measures are worth nothing now.

Honorable men shouldn't denounce each other in overly harsh language because they might end up slandering a good man.

On the other hand you have a Pope who, upon visiting a nation where Catholics, his people, have their money forcibly taken and handed to monsters who murder babies, tear their bodies apart and sell the pieces, talks about how the climate might get hotter in a few hundred years if we're not careful and we really ought to make room for more savages.

We're at the point where just accurately describing our opponents sounds like slander. But if anyone deserves to be excoriated with fiery rhetoric it's the people who oppose everything that's good and decent; it's a Pope who cares little for innocent murdered babies.

It's not surprising though, I gave up on First Things years ago when they ignorantly crapped all over Game and its theorists, as though they've collectively ever contributed to the world a fraction of what Dalrock has.

Blogger Karl October 01, 2015 1:40 PM  

OT: Related to your Twitter debate today. Slate explains how claiming a Cherokee ancestor is really about white privilege. I guess claiming to be from another tribe doesn't rate.

Throughout the South in the 1840s and 1850s, large numbers of whites began claiming they were descended from a Cherokee great-grandmother. That great-grandmother was often a “princess,” a not-inconsequential detail in a region obsessed with social status and suspicious of outsiders. By claiming a royal Cherokee ancestor, white Southerners were legitimating the antiquity of their native-born status as sons or daughters of the South, as well as establishing their determination to defend their rights against an aggressive federal government, as they imagined the Cherokees had done. These may have been self-serving historical delusions, but they have proven to be enduring.

The continuing popularity of claiming “Cherokee blood” and the ease with which millions of Americans inhabit a Cherokee identity speaks volumes about the enduring legacy of American colonialism. Shifting one’s identity to claim ownership of an imagined Cherokee past is at once a way to authenticate your American-ness and absolve yourself of complicity in the crimes Americans committed against the tribe across history.

Blogger Alexander October 01, 2015 1:41 PM  

I was under the impression that the Republicans have had an 'aww shucks" approach to being cucked at the ballot box since Nixon vs. Kennedy. So I guess in '82 they figured they might as well go ahead and formalize the facts on the ground.

This is not a GOP vs Dem vs Lib vs et al, issue. Vote for individual candidates. I bet 95% of good, old-fashioned, freedom candidates will go through the GOP party, but a good chunk of the GOP candidates are leftists, particularly in national races. The problem is not the political parties, the problem is the banksters.

I am still in What the Fuck Land over George Stephanopoulos moderating a GOP debate from two years ago. Was Bill Clinton unavailable that night.

The GOP Establishment's need to be liked by the MSM is as pathetic as it is delusional.

My own projection at this moment 10/01/15 is that the GOP is looking at a disastrous wipe out on election day next year. When a third to a half of the conservative base is refusing to identify as Republican it basically doesn't matter what they do between now and election day.

They have already lost and they deserve to lose.

I am not looking forward to the aftermath.

"It's not surprising though, I gave up on First Things years ago when they ignorantly crapped all over Game and its theorists"


Game is not a First Thing. God is a First Thing. So if Game got crapped on, then it was because Cult Converts embraced its jargon and proponents as First Things, and substituted Game for First Things.

Indeed one prominent proponent of Game passionately equated it with the Bible, announcing the two interchangeable because . . . well because Game = the Truth. lol

Dalrock does good works, but he is not a First Thing either. He's a promising youngster, searching for the Lord. Sorry if reality craps all over your personal cosmology. Mebbe you need some new First Things.

I've heard something before, not sure if it's entirely true as i've not researched it.

But apparently when the confiscation of the Cherokee lands was building up, a number of them claimed to be Italian to escape the Trail of Tears.

On the other hand, after wards, a number of Italians claimed to be Cherokee to get hold of free land after the removal.

Sounds kind of circular, but who knows?

Fighting "global warming" is not a First Thing either. My point is that they reject knowledge, reject reality. Game has a much clearer view of human nature than modern churchianity.

I don't care about Game as some sort of philosophy. It's useful and interesting because it accurately describes the reality of human behavior. First Things rejected it not because of any legitimate reason, but because First Things is run by a lot of women who don't like to hear true things about themselves and other women that Game has to say. They prefer to be ignorant and stay in their rebellion.

Much more likely, given the track record of Democrats.

The Democrats kept trying to recount the votes in FLorida because their operatives had told them that all military oversea votes and ballots have been neutralized.

So they thought they had it in the sack. Their system wasn't quite as well thought out back in 2000 though. It got a lot better in 2008.
