Dissecting Trump

My good buddy Steve Deace last Thursday compared the current GOP primary race to a poker game. Take a listen to Steve's great riff on how Trump has changed the Republican template, perhaps forever.

By the way, Steve is this year's keynote speaker at the 8th Annual Hope Rides Alone Family Reunion Banquet honoring my fallen son Sergeant Eddie Jeffers. If you've not yet made your reservation, please do so today because seats are filling up fast.

Rush Is Right

I'm no Dittohead but I will give credit where credit where credit is due and Rush Limbaugh nails it today on how the GOP Establishment always, as in every time, picks losers. Take a look:

This is in line with what we will be addressing here at Aletheia Group LLC in the coming days and months.

Who’s Your Base?

Mitt Romney at Values Voters Summit

The Republican Party needs to answer this question. 

In less than a week after the reelection of Barack Hussein Obama and the drubbing of moderate GOP candidate Mitt Romney, a self-described "severe conservative," we are being told by GOP Establishment types, Inside the Beltway "conservative" pundits, and of course the Left Stream Media that the party of conservatives needs to become more moderate.

Today on ABC's The View, Newt Gingrich answered Barbara Walters question about where the GOP went wrong: 

"I think as a party we fundamentally misunderstood the American people."

Newt was right in saying our approach at outreach was flawed, but the party platform clearly understand the American people and more importantly, represents the average American.

What must first happen is for the GOP intelligentsia must decide who is its base.

Barack Obama and the Democratic Party did an outstanding job at reaching out to and getting out its base on Election Day. The Republicans did not. In fact, if values voters are supposedly the GOP's base, can you show me any substantial outreach to the base after the GOP convention?

So, those in charge need to come now let us reason together and decide if their base is the moderate and independent voters or the conservative/values voters who single-handedly put them into and have kept them in power.

I doubt the current crop of Republican Party leaders will ever come to the point that they admit they abandoned their base.

So there are only two solutions as I see it for we conservative values voters.

We either take over the party, or leave it wholesale.

More on that to follow...


After the confetti is gone…

...what now? What do we do when the reality of our choices settle in?

This week we will have to endure the lies and hypocrisy of the Left and its lapdog media.

But how do we make sound judgments when it comes to voting for our elected representatives?

Is Newt Really New?

From this week's The Truth Newsletter:

“When it comes to Newt Gingrich’s claim to having changed his life, the question for all Christian voters is this: ‘Is the road to redemption through Christ open to all, or only of whom we approve?’” --Dave

From The Founders page:

Our Founders were not looking for perfection in a candidate; they knew all too well the fallen nature of man. However, they realized that with its system of checks and balances, our republican form of government could protect against the evils of mankind and still promote the brilliance of learned men.

From The Pulpit page:

Our job as values voters is who can best serve to be that bridge. Israel got King Saul before they had David and Solomon (both of whom were at times wicked as kings). Are we willing to work towards that, or will we allow the Babylonians to continue to raid us?

To The Streets page:

Can WE the People trust a man such a Newt Gingrich with all the baggage he brings with him? What should we consider about the former Speaker of the House when measuring his ability to serve in the highest office of the land?

In tonight's GOP debate, Mitt Romney was willing to bet Governor Rick Perry $10,000 that Perry was misquoting Willard's book. As a former LDS pastor, Governor Romney should know that the Mormon Church opposes gambling. LDS on gambling Not a good moment for Willard Mitchell Romney.

He Who Lives In Glass Houses…

It appears former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has a plan to beat Texas Governor Rick Perry for the GOP presidential nomination. The Washington Post story tells us that Team Romney is planning on using Perry's book "Fed Up" and his past record against Perry.

Memo to Team Romney: You might want to be careful with that strategy...that's a two-way street. Your record as governor, of which Romney waxes make-believe, is far from anything resembling conservative:

The Mitt Romney Deception

While I'm not sold on Rick Perry nor have I made a decision on the GOP field, I will never vote for Romney based not only on his record as governor, but also, and more importantly, on the deception he is trying to perpetrate about that record. Romney wants us to believe what we read about his record, chief among them RomneyCare, is not what it actually is, but what he would have us to believe it is.





Stay the Course

Thomas Paine

These past few days have been trying, no doubt. But a patriot long ago wrote that "these are the times that try men's souls." It was December 23, 1776 and the essay, or pamphlet was titled "The Crisis" written by Thomas Paine. If you've never read this brilliant piece, do so because when you feel like giving up because of anger, despair, frustration and/or pessimism, we have to decide what price we are willing to pay for liberty.

Most of you know that my son Sergeant Eddie Jeffers paid the price, as President Abraham Lincoln said at the Gettysburg Address, "the last full measure." Eddie at times felt like giving up; he even wrote about in his article "Freedom Feels Good":

But more than anyone, I sometimes see futility in my actions. I fight, I kill, I scar myself emotionally, psychologically, and in some ways physically...and as I lay in the dark at night, I wonder what it's for. I wonder if the Iraqi people will ever get it together or if the country will collapse on itself whether I am here or not. It makes me angry, and a big part of me is content to let it fall apart. Part of me doesn't care what happens to this God-forsaken city after I leave it...as long as “me and my boys” make it out in one piece.

But that is the viewpoint of a man who wishes his actions to be in vain. I do not. I have lost very close friends over here. I don't want their lives to have been given in vain. Simply put, we are fighters. We are all in the same place for various reasons, for me, it's personal. I am in a modern day crusade to exterminate evil. People whose atrocities I cannot even begin to name cannot be allowed to exist among us. As long as these people are here, everything that is just and good is at risk.

I get as mad as the next person over our side not fighting the good fight, the strong fight, fighting in a manner I was never allowed to while in the Army or my son would have never entertained in combat.

And then I remember that those, for the most part, serving in Congress are not our military...not even close. They have the luxury of compromise, bipartisanship, winning the media war, and whatever else excuse they come up with to justify their weaknesses.

But I cannot dwell on that; it is a distraction. I need to keep focused on ensuring that we continue to fight the statists in the White House and the Democrat Party. I need to keep focused on continuing to scourge the Republican Party of the RINOs in leadership and those so quickly willing to "cross the aisle" to work in a bipartisanship manner...with the statists.

Patriots, we need to continue to elect men like Marco Rubio who refused to vote for the languid legislation some are still trying to tell us was a good bill.

And be there no doubt that many in the ruling class of the GOP would love for us to stomp our feet and take our toys home. You see, many of the Rockefeller Republicans are perfectly comfortable being in the minority because then they can "vote on principle" knowing their vote will not change the outcome but give them top cover. That is the height of political cowardice and those are the politicians who should no longer be representing WE the People.

So, now that a few days have passed, let's take some glass cleaner to our looking glasses and be ever vigilant of Capitol Hill and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

We do not let up the pressure.

We do not take our eye off the objective.

We cannot be "summer soldiers" or "sunshine patriots" that "shrink from the service of [our] country."

We must and can stay the course.

Our very liberty is at stake...
