    Good Saturday Morning ! The video is from 2010, then the IRS shut them up. I keep seeing articles on the Rise of the Radical Middle now because supporting the truth and candor of Trump and/or Cruz needs to be explained to the masses. Welcome to my world fellow radicals ! 😀

    • Lulu says:

      PUMA was the radical middle too! Moderates unite! The Tea Party is actually a bunch of moderates even if the lefty loons scream otherwise. And Republicans trashing Trump as a non-pure conservative don’t get it. The public isn’t either and that is why they like him.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I thought we PUMAs were the Bitter Clingers of the middle, then some of us moved on to be full blown Raycists in the Tea Party 😉 Probably why there’s a movement now to have the Gadsden flag banned in public. We’re such threatening rascals.

  2. DeniseVB says:

    Or maybe it’s just Revenge ? Read the whole article, and it’s from our friends at Free Beacon….

    A snip:

    Well, here we are again, at the beginning of a presidential campaign in which the Republican Party, having lost its hold on the radical middle, is terrified of the electoral consequences. The supporters of Reagan and Perot, of Gingrich and Pat Buchanan, have found another aging billionaire in whom to place their fears and anxieties, their nostalgia and love of country, their disgust with the political and cultural elite, their trepidation at what our nation is becoming.

    A brash showboat and celebrity, self-promoter and controversialist, silly and mocking, a caricature of a caricature, Donald Trump is no one’s idea of a serious presidential candidate. Which is exactly why the radical middle finds him refreshing. Not an iota of him is politically correct, he plays by no rules of comity or civility, he genuflects to no party or institution, he is unafraid of and antagonistic toward the media, and he challenges the conventional wisdom of both parties, which holds that there is no real cost to illegal immigration and to trade with China.

    Why is Hillary having trouble attracting young people to her campaign? It can’t be her age because Sanders seems to be bringing them in. Just wondering.

    Hill-arious: Hillary Promises Pizza And Free Stuff, But Still Can’t Attract Any Young People To Her Cause

    • cynic says:

      I can’t stand listening to her talk. She drags out her words, trying for emphasis, but It’s soooo boring. She’s so uninspiring.

      • leslie says:

        Speaking of Hillary’s new speech patterns . . .I agree.
        I wonder if she actually did have some type of traumatic brain injury or a stroke. I’m not being facetious or disrespectful. I, too, have noticed changes to the way she now speaks. It is different from 8 years ago. She was inspiring and she was not boring. At first, I wondered if it were my own disgust about her role in bronco’s administration influencing my reactions to her. And it may have been. At the same time, I have listened very recently and heard just what you’re saying, cynic.
        Bernie Sanders, who, I think, is older than Hillary is exciting, inspiring, speaks as if he knows just what he wants to say. And he says it. Of course, he doesn’t have to worry that he’ll step on Obama’s toes. And Hillary is no longer the fierce and smart candidate she once was. She is now (goddess knows why) beholden to the asshat in the WH – when he’s not on the golf course, or flying his butt all over the world at our expense.

        • 1539days says:

          There was kind of a cover-up of what happened when Hillary fell and hit her head.

          • Lulu says:

            Yep. Even a small brain injury can cause a lot of differences. But I think she is surrounding herself with a bunch of different people now too and that can influence the way you sound, form phrases, catch words, etc. Does she sound exactly like Sidney Blumenthal? She actually does with that halting, snooty, snark thing going. LOL. She used to sound like Big Dog (very fluent in full paragraphs) sort of but now she doesn’t.

          • leslie says:

            I remember that very clearly. I thought of that as I wrote my comment. I hope she is not suffering from anything medical. I also hope she steps out of the race.

    • DeniseVB says:

      When I first saw that “invite” my first thought was pesky little oppo pranksters. No way a serious HRC supporter would use that photo when this one is so much more “hipster”…. /s

  7. Myiq2xu says:

    I guess they aren’t as evolved as Obama.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Didn’t Ahmadinejad once state that homosexuality was “not really an issue” in Iran too ?

      • Lulu says:

        What happened to the two hundred people who planned to show up naked to show Bronco the difference between men and women? I was looking forward to his reaction.

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Awwwww, that little cutie pie CJ Pearson favorited my tweet. (I was responding to that Luke guy who wants all Republicans to be shot or something)

  9. DeniseVB says:

    Digging through my files, all the really good Tea Party “propaganda” seems to stop in 2010. Here’s another one….

  10. leslie says:

    Just heard bronco bama introduce himself to the crowd in Uganda or maybe Kenya – I wasn’t listening that closely. He said, “There’s a reason my name is Barack Hussein Obama”. People cheered. I wonder if they were grateful he could remember his own name.
    Doesn’t Hussein translate to leach? or is it asshat?

    • DeniseVB says:

      LOL, according the media feeds, he’s both. Lecturing on how to fight terrorism (“put down the broad brush”) and being nicer to homosexuals (“treat them as your equals”). Gah.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Didn’t mean “Gah” at the gay comment, just Obama’s not being very “diplomatic” to Kenya’s cultural beliefs. He wouldn’t wag his finger at Iran, hey?

  11. leslie says:

    The funeral/memorial for Sandra Bland has just begun here. The minister said she, “Sandy finally found her voice working for social justice”, and that she (the minister) will not believe “anything coming out of Texas” related to the death of this woman. I think there will be no end to this story until there is more mayhem unleashed by the SJWs and #BLM. This death was sad, tragic, needless. And if the victim had not behaved the way she did, she would most likely be alive today. I still believe the unintentionally completed suicide was at her own hands and that the cuts on her arms and the history of overdosing contribute to my conclusion.

    My thoughts from the very beginning were – knowing what has happened in other communities and to other LEOs – I can’t imagine any cop or county jail engaging in any action that could hint at discrimination or abuse toward any citizen of any color at this time.

    Wow! What a peace deal that must have been!

    Iranian Supreme Leader Tweets Picture of Obama Committing Suicide

    Obama’s peace partner tweeted out a picture today of Barack Obama committing suicide.

    • piper says:

      The mullahs are celebrating their peaceful financial win without firing a weapon of any kind from guns, bombs to terrorists. And this is how they show the world what a dolt bronco really is in their eyes. Long live idiots (Ketchup and Bronco)!!!!!!!!

    HUGE LINES – PACKED HOUSE for Donald Trump in Oskaloosa, Iowa …Update: HUGE Crowd in Overflow Room

    Hundreds of supporters turned out to see Donald Trump at his campaign stop in Oskaloosa, Iowa today.

    It was another packed house­

    • DeniseVB says:

      From the comments….why it’s the “radical middle” 😀

      These are Americans. Not “conservative” not “liberal” but people who have a strong sense about the virtues of America and are tired of America being turned into a third world hellhole and told she is a racist, evil country or that we don’t have a heart if we don’t accept more third world hell.

    We’re officially going back to 1955 …. because, black millionaires lives matter and have feelings I guess….. R.I.P. Emmett Till.

    Just got my “guidance” and “schedule” for the Redstate thingy next month in Atlanta. Business Casual “suggested” for the daytime events. WTF does that mean? In panic mode now.

    • Lulu says:

      Slacks, nice jeans, blouses, stuff like that. Wear a rhinestone evening gown after 6PM. Maybe a tiara. Just kidding. Add a blazer and a scarf for after 5. But remember I dress like a little man per my daughter. With makeup and big hair. It sounds like great fun! And interesting.

    • DandyTIger says:

      I’d just go business causal the whole time. For me that would be a nice dress pants, kind of dressy shirt, slutty dress shoes. Kind of nicely put together. If it were cold out, I’d add the fur jacket. But Atlanta in August, make all those things light and breathable.

  23. votermom says:

    Ugh. Gave myself a huge goose egg. Hit my forehead on the edge of an open cabinet door when I was doing laundry. I’m such a klutz.

  24. So I’ve been wondering how BLM was going to be exploited ever since it proved so effective at disrupting Bernie Sanders at NutRoots. The aggressive young white males who run rampant on the left and who control most of its online dialogue were not going to be able to pass up an opportunity, that much I knew. It looks like we have our first candidate with this post about DHS spying.

    Happening tonight.

    Group to Unveil 8 Foot Satan Statue at “Largest Public Satanic Ceremony in History”

    The Satanic Temple is unveiling an 8 foot statue of a goat-headed Satan at the “largest public Satanic ceremony in history” tonight in Detroit.

    The organizers are promoting the party as a “night of chaos, noise, and debauchery.”

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Will Obama be there to accept the award?

      • leslie says:

        I don’t know if bronco can spare time away from family – we all know how important they are to him. But, the “night of chaos, noise and debauchery” sounds like my block every weekend during the summer as I am on the way to the beach here in northern Chicago.

      In Detroit, how will they know the difference?

    I don’t know if you guys kniw about the Marion Zimmer Bradley scandal that broke a few years ago (short version – MZB was a child abuser who tried to turn her daughter lesbian and her husband was a gay serial pedophile rapist and the sf community turned a blind eye)
    Her daughter blogged about it very recently /the-story-of-moira-greyland-guest-post/

    He’s really getting me angry! I have one of these flags and it’s not going anyplace. I’d like to shove it up his rear, but he might enjoy that too much!
