  • MotherJones Sheldon Adelson Is Partying With Mitt Romney on Election Night —By Andy Kroll | Tue Nov. 6, 2012 7:37 AM PST 1 Sheldon Adelson. Photo by Color China Photos/Zuma Press It's the least Mitt Romney could do for his biggest backer. Casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, will attend Romney's election night party in Boston Tuesday evening, CNN reports. The Adelsons are the largest donors of the 2012 election cycle, giving more than $53 million in disclosed donations to candidates and super-PACs. That includes a staggering $20 million (that we know of) to Restore Our Future, the record-setting super-PAC devoted solely to electing Romney president. The Adelsons' entire record of giving in this election cycle is likely far greater. In April, Sheldon Adelson said that he planned to give millions more to dark-money nonprofit groups that don't disclose their donors. Adelson later said in June he could give as much as $100 million to defeat Obama, and insiders familiar with Adelson's giving told CNN that the Adelsons will come "very close" to meeting that goal. Forbes puts Adelson's net worth at $20.5 billion, making him the 14th-richest American. Ironically, no other American has gotten richer during Obama's first term in office than Sheldon Adelson. To better understand Adelson's influence on the 2012 elections, check out these nifty charts.

One has to remember I was in business in a city, which is home and host to some of the most powerful and connected men - not only in this country, but to foreign officials, dignitaries and businessmen from abroad for almost 13 years, from 1993 to 2006. Particularly, my firm was patronized by a significant number of Middle-Eastern clients over the years; most especially, prior to 9/11. I have contended from the onset and have stated accordingly on numerous occasions, that my situation has absolutely nothing to do with prostitution related issues. In great measure, my very rationale for breaking with Mr. Preston Burton, of late is he views my case as a simple - albeit grossly exaggerated - prostitution matter. There is something very disturbing and I would daresay highly secretive about the existence of my truly bizarre case. And I intend to uncover exactly what this is here."

  • Gather "Was Sibly simply dropping names, or did he know something more? Some researchers have linked Clinton's name to a September 1994 batch of phone records originating from Washington's Park Hyatt Hotel, yet corroborating evidence is not strong enough at this time to prove these assertions to be factual. Still, when we consider information presented in my trilogy on the Clintons, we learn that Bill's consigliere, Bruce Lindsey, used to scurry Clinton to the Marriott Hotel in downtown D.C. for extramarital affairs—a distance of little more than one mile from the Park Hyatt. In light of the former president's sexual proclivities, it's not hard to imagine that he used multiple locales for his trysts."

Identified escorts now include Navy Lieutenant Commander Rebecca Dickinson, 38 [who used the escort name "Renee], a former Annapolis Naval Academy Supply Officer who, with over 19 years in the Navy, is just of eligibility for retirement, and Dr. Rhona Reiss, 63, who was an escort at age 56. Reiss, of Gaithersburg, Maryland, has a doctorate in higher education. Another PhD who worked as a Pamela Martin escort, Dr. Brandy Britton, 43, an Associate Professor at the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus who used the escort name "Alexis," was found hanging in her Ellicott City, Maryland home in January 2007. It is not known if the Justice Department prosecutors had pressured Britton into testifying in the Palfrey case before her alleged "suicide." Britton's identity was made known to Howard County, Maryland police after an "anonymous" tip was received in a phone call to the department.  and  Our sincere condolences go out to Blanche, her mother.

Palfrey Phone LIST - August 1996

  • Wayne Madsen Report The asset forfeiture case, separate from the criminal case against Palfrey, was about to get worrisome for certain quarters when Palfrey's former civil asset forfeiture attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, formally gave notice that he was going to subpoena convicted GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff, fired U.S. Attorney for Maryland Tom DiBiagio (fired because he was focusing on the role of Maryland Republican Governor Bob Ehrlich, Jr. and his senior staff as customers of PMA and their involvement with "poker parties" in Washington involving escorts and CIA officials, including Director Porter Goss and Executive Director Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, as well as defense contractors Brent Wilkes and Mitchell Wade and Representative Randy "Duke" Cunningham), and convicted former Baltimore Police Commissioner and Ehrlich Maryland State Police Superintendent Ed Norris.  search terms: Ronald Roughead

  • "WMR   (Apr 2008) has learned from its Middle East intelligence sources that a leak from the office of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's office resulted in the last minute scuttling of an Israeli intelligence operation in Beirut that would have started a series of events that would have likely resulted in the outbreak of warfare between Israel and Lebanon, Syria, and possibly, between Iran and the United States. ... Israel's Mossad planned an April 25 assassination, likely by its favorite method, a massive car bomb, of Lebanese Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. Because the assassination would have triggered the "perfect storm" for the outbreak of war in Lebanon, with the involvement of Israel, the United States, Syria, and Iran, an official in Olmert's office leaked the assassination plan. When it became apparent that there was a leak, Mossad scuttled the entire operation." more search terms: CIA, Roland Carnaby, killed four days after planned assassination of Nasrallah, penetrated Houston, Cheney, ...

This editor recalls Palfrey stating over dinner that she had information from some of her escorts that involved pre-intelligence on the 9/11 attack. The intersection of Abramoff and his Russian-Israeli mob gang to knowledge possessed by Carnaby and Palfrey suggest that their deaths may have been as brazen as hits as the gunning down of Boulis on a Fort Launderdale street by hit men. That assassination was blamed on Abramoff and his associates.  full story
  • WMR On September 1, 2007, WMR reported the following: "WMR has learned that on August 31, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the indicted Pamela Martin & Associates (PMA) proprietor, filed a 'Motion for Pretrial Conference to Consider Matters Relating to classified information' under the 'Classified Information Procedures Act' (CIPA) with the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC.

The extension os found on the phone list, which US Judge Gladys Kessler ruled yesterday could be released by Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the list's owner.  On June 1, 2007, WMR reported the following: "WMR has learned that a phone number located within a McLean, Virginia office that was used by then-Halliburton President and Chief Executive Officer Dick Cheney in the 1990s appears on the client list of Pamela Martin & Associates, the escort service operated by the so-called 'Washington Madam,' Deborah Jeane Palfrey."  more search terms: West Group, Alice M.

For some four weeks, ABC News' special investigative reporter Brian Ross, senior executive producer Rhonda Schwartz, producer Justin Rood, and other staff and interns culled Deborah Jeane Palfrey's phone records for the names of high-profile DC area clients of Pamela Martin & Associates, some of whom are top officials in the Bush administration. Depending on one's definition of "newsworthy," there are between 25 and 100 high-profile names on the phone records that merely represent 80 percent of the last four years of phone calls -- 2002 to 2006. Phone records from 1994 to 2002 were not provided to ABC but they may contain the most important names of past clients.
  • WayneMadsenReport  "has confirmed with extremely knowledgeable CIA and Pentagon sources that the former CEO who is on Deborah Jeane Palfrey's list is Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney was CEO of Halliburton during the time of his liaisons with the Pamela Martin & Associates escort firm. Palfrey's phone invoices extend back to 1996 and include calls to and from Cheney. Ironically, in 2000 Cheney was appointed by Bush to head his Vice President selection committee, a task that enabled Cheney to gather detailed personal files on a number of potential candidates, including Bill Frist, George Pataki, John Danforth, Fred Thompson, Chuck Hagel, John Kasich, Chris Cox, Frank Keating, Tom Ridge, Colin Powell, and Jim Gilmore, before he selected himself as the vice presidential candidate.  The White House saw to it that ABC/Disney killed the DC Madam's story before yet another scandal swamped the Bush administration. Cheney is departing Washington today for a trip to the Middle East, where he will visit the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, and the USS John C. Stennis in the Gulf."

Discussions moved into high gear when the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal prompted news organizations and private groups to demand that the administration turn over Secret Service records of visitors to the White House complex and the vice president's residence.  There was precedent for the demands.  During the Clinton administration, Republican-controlled congressional committees obtained Secret Service visitor logs while conducting investigations of the president and first lady.  Christopher Lehane, a former special assistant counsel to President Clinton and press secretary to then-Vice President Al Gore, points out the political implications of the Bush administration campaign to close off access to the records.  "The question it raises is 'what are these guys hiding?

Unlike its role during the Watergate scandal, the Post is part of the criminal conspiracy to cover up "Hookergate." A public health nurse told WMR that it is irresponsible and a public health menace not to report cases of contacts with prostitutes in Washington, DC to public health authorities. The reason: With 152.2 AIDS cases per 100,000 people, Washington, DC has the highest AIDS rate in the United States."
  • Democrats.org reprints  WayneMadsenReport: "The focus on the DC Hookergate story has now moved to Baltimore, and the firing by the Justice Department in December 2004 of the US Attorney for Maryland, Thomas DiBiagio. DiBiagio was fired, along with a number of other US attorneys, after George W. Bush's re-election for political reasons. One of DiBiagio's public corruption targets was the staff of then-Republican Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich, some of whom had engaged the services of Madam Palfrey's escorts. The US Attorney's office in Baltimore first became involved in the investigation of the prostitution ring after the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) office and IRS agent Troy Burrus in Baltimore made a criminal referral to the US Attorney's office in Baltimore. Subsequently, an asset seizure warrant for Palfrey's assets was issued. Palfrey and her employees used two telephones in Maryland for their escort business, 301 231-5800 in Rockville, near some of the "mansions" in Potomac, Maryland and Great Falls, Virginia described by "20/20" as the locations in DC where Pamela Martin escorts would pay calls, and 410 244-1818 in Baltimore.

Hillary's business partner, Diane Lewis, was supposedly running a firm refurbishing sizeable ai rplanes for use by Mid-East sheiks. Delivered to our tv show was an entire file cabinet of records, travel documents, secret meeting places with known terrorists, part of the Abu Nidal Terrorist Worldwide Group. Diane Lewis and her partners were secretly shipping missile parts to the know n terrorists. We had the secret notebooks, handwritten notes, secret address books, secret telexes and faxes, the whole works. We put key items up on the screen of our tv show and said that by corruption, the FBI and the CIA were covering this all up.. Before they were married, in a "marriage of covenience", Bill and Hillary each had separate roles since they were of college age, with covert operations of America's secret political police, the CIA. Hillary and her women business partners and the Lesbi an angle was important to the mess we showed. Because of our tv show, Diane Lewis lost her protection with the spy agencies. As shown by an article in the New York Times in September, 1992, Ms Lewis was arrested The federal judge hearing her criminal case did NOT hear it in open court but behind closed doors. The Judge was informed that the criminal defendant, Diane Lewis, charged with violating U.S. Export laws, was a business partner of the new First Lady and Ms Lewis arranged to become a CIA snitch to supposedly help them finger more terrori sts.

Notes
  • American Prospect, How the DLC does it.    A Business-Led Party

    Freeing Democrats from being, well, Democrats has been the Democratic Leadership Council's mission since its founding 16 years ago by Al Gore, Chuck Robb, and a handful of other conservative, mostly southern Dems as a rump faction of disaffected elected officials and party activists. Producing and directing the DLC is Al From, its founder and CEO, who's been the leader, visionary, and energizing force behind the New Democrat movement since Day One. A veteran of the Carter White House and Capitol Hill, where he'd worked for Louisiana Representative Gillis Long and served as executive director of the House Democratic Caucus, From helped build the Committee on Party Effectiveness, a forerunner of the DLC, in the early 1980s. To From, a key rationale for establishing the DLC in those days was to protect the Democrats' eroding bastion in the South against mounting Republican gains, and indeed one of the DLC's chief projects in the 1980s was to create and promote the Super Tuesday primary across the South, aimed at enhancing the clout of southern Dems in selecting presidential candidates.

    Privately funded and operating as an extraparty organization without official Democratic sanction, and calling themselves "New Democrats," the DLC sought nothing less than the miraculous: the transubstantiation of America's oldest political party. Though the DLC painted itself using the palette of the liberal left--as "an effort to revive the Democratic Party's progressive tradition," with New Democrats being the "trustees of the real tradition of the Democratic Party"--its mission was far more confrontational. With few resources, and taking heavy flak from the big guns of the Democratic left, the DLC proclaimed its intention, Mighty Mouse–style, to rescue the Democratic Party from the influence of 1960s-era activists and the AFL-CIO, to ease its identification with hot-button social issues, and, perhaps most centrally, to reinvent the party as one pledged to fiscal restraint, less government, and a probusiness, pro–free market outlook.   It's hard to argue that they haven't succeeded.

    Today's is not your father's Democratic Party. Though the dwindling chorus of party progressives provides counterpoint, today's Democrats are proud to claim the mantle of budgetary moderation. They oppose President Bush's $2-trillion tax-cut plan not by arguing mainly for more spending on health, education, and welfare, but because it risks the new sacred cause of paying off the national debt. They are the party of increased military spending, the death penalty, the war on drugs, and partnership with religious faith. They are the party of Ending Welfare As We Know It, the party of The Era of Big Government Is Over.

    The New Democrats, who helped bring about this shift, have surged in power and influence. The DLC and its think tank, the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI), have blossomed into a $7-million-a-year operation. The New Democrat Network (NDN), which provides funds to dozens of certified co-thinkers in federal, state, and local races, raised nearly $6 million last year. Twenty U.S. senators and 70 members of the House of Representatives have formally affiliated themselves with New Democrat caucuses, and hundreds of state and local elected officials are signing on. The three men who've dominated the last three presidential tickets, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Joseph Lieberman, the DLC's most recent chairman, are all quintessential New Democrats. So are many of the party's rising stars, such as Senator John Edwards of North Carolina; Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana, the DLC's new chairman; and Maryland Lieutenant Governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend.

    Though the DLC offers a nominal $50 membership to anyone interested, its mass base is minuscule. "There's a New Democrat audience of about 5,000 to 10,000 people who get our stuff on a regular basis," says Matthew Frankel, the DLC's spokesman. And with a nonexistent grass-roots presence, the DLC is generally unknown except to practitioners of "inside baseball" politics. Yet the affiliation of scores of members of Congress has enabled the DLC to establish alliances with Fortune 500 corporate supporters, particularly along the so-called K Street corridor of Washington-based lobbyists and in high-tech enclaves such as California's Silicon Valley.

    Once, the Reverend Jesse Jackson disparaged the DLC as "Democrats for the Leisure Class." But no one should underestimate the DLC's role in remaking the Democratic Party. Disciplined and single-minded, working tirelessly to forge alliances between individual Democratic elected officials and business groups, zealously promoting the political fortunes of their stars, and publishing a dizzying array of white papers and policy proposals, the DLC has given strategic coherence to what otherwise would have remained an inchoate tendency within the party. It has become a forum within which like-minded pro-business Democrats can share ideas, endorse one another, and commiserate about the persistence of the Old Guard.

Now you would think that these 'progressive internationalists' would be chastened by the turn of events in Iraq. But Marshall not only remains an adamant supporter of the war; he is now a militant proponent of escalation.  Here is what he wrote more recently in a Blueprint article published on January 8, 2004."
  • "What the United States needs now is not an exit strategy but a comprehensive counterinsurgency strategy. The key elements of such a strategy are more supple military tactics, more money, and more allies. But that requires more troops, not fewer, and it means deploying them in ways that could raise the risk of U.S. casualties. The administration has rightly made the democratic transformation of the greater Middle East the grand American project of the 21st century. That job starts in Iraq. If we fail here, our hopes for liberalizing the region will be stillborn. To create a stable, representative government in Baghdad, we need to show total commitment to quelling a motley insurgency that includes remnants of Saddam's security and intelligence services, disgruntled Sunnis, and foreign jihadists. Yet the timing of the administration's troop cuts seems dictated by the campaign calendar, not strategy."

  • Palestine Chronicle "Jonathan Tasini, who is running against Clinton in the New York Democratic primary, is gaining the most visible support. His position on the Iraq war is solid, as he wants all U.S. troops home now. Tasini also believes that democracy in Iraq is a long way from developing and argues that there will be no such thing in Iraq's future as long as the U.S. stays the course. "[The] invasion of Iraq has created a theocracy," says Tasini. "The people of Iraq have the right to decide what law they choose to follow."

    The Green Party is also tossing its antiwar weight into the ring with veteran antiwar Green Howie Hawkins winning his party’s nomination. Hawkins still has to gather enough signatures to get his party’s line on the ballot. The Libertarian Party of New York recently nominated Jeff Russell, who says he'd bring soldiers home as soon as possible, and the Socialist Equity Party is running Bill Van Auken, who wants to bring U.S. troops home now.

    None of the antiwar third-party candidates at this point in the campaign season have any real name recognition or financial backing. Even so, Tasini the Democrat does. Antiwar flyers plaster campuses throughout New York City touting his challenge to Hillary, and his campaign is being discussed on numerous antiwar blogs and e-mail discussion lists. Tasini's drive may soon spark some real tension among antiwar activists in New York, however, as many believe supporting Tasini will fail the movement against the war and set up Clinton for a 2008 run for president.

    For starters, they contend that Tasini is still a Democrat, which means that if he doesn't beat Hillary in September's primary election, he will most likely endorse her campaign and hand over his antiwar funds to the pro-war Democratic Party, something he denies. Another problem is Tasini may not even appear on the Democrat’s ballot in September, he still has to turn in 15,000 Democratic signatures before that happens. And Hillary, despite her primary challenge, has already accepted her party’s nomination in typical establishment style: ignore any challenges and stay on message, no matter how misguided it may be."

    Huffington Post "As chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), Emanuel is billed as one of the key figures in the battle for control of Congress in 2006 ... As I have written before, Democrats right now have no official position on Iraq, energy, bankruptcy, protecting citizens' legal rights, trade, repealing Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, the Supreme Court...and the list goes on."

Ali Hamid, Al Qaeda, Neo-con ties to Osama Bin Laden, ...Rahm Emanuel
January 26, 2009 -- Former "Al Qaeda" member poised to spill beans on Balkans operation

In what could prove to be the biggest break in the investigation of past U.S. intelligence and neo-conservative ties to Osama Bin Laden and his "Al Qaeda" operation, a Bahraini national who has been held in a detention center in Bosnia-Herezegvina, is poised to blow the whistle on past U.S. military and financial links to the activities of Osama Bin Laden and his band of Islamist guerrillas during the Balkans civil wars of the 1990s.

Ali Hamid, who was an Al Qaeda officer in Bosnia, has been held since December 2008 in a detention center in eastern Sarajevo, in what constitutes the Bosnian Serb republic. Hamid was transferred to the detention center after serving as 12-year prison sentence in Bosnia for planning a car bombing in western Mostar, in which 43 people were injured, three seriously. Hamid's Al Qaeda name is "Abu Ubayda."

Hamid wants to be transferred to Serbia and testify about crimes committed by U.S.- and Bin Laden-backed Bosnian Muslims against Serbians and Croatias during the 1990s civil war in Bosnia.

Bosnia has ordered the deportation of Hamid and his information as gained the interest of both Serbian and Bosnian authorities. The ex-Al Qaeda "El Mujahedin" commander has been visited by the Serbina consul in Sarajevo. Hamid was a key wtiness in The Hague at the trial of General Rasim Delic, a Bosnian Muslim commander accused of war crimes.

Hamid may be a key source of information on U.S. support for his network in the 1990s, On July 5, 2007, WMR reported: WMR has previously reported that during the Bosnia War in the 1990s, the United States provided hundreds of millions of dollars in assistance to the Bosnians that was collected from various Arab and Muslim countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Malaysia, Qatar, Egypt, and others. The collection of most of the money was done via the Bosnia Federation Defense Fund, also known as the "Bosnia Defense Fund," which was run by Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, Feith's law firm -- Feith and Zell (FANZ) -- Riggs Bank (a principal for which was Jonathan Bush, uncle of George W. Bush), and the Central Bank of Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) in Sarajevo. Feith's former law partner, Jerusalem-based Marc Zell, is now partnered in a Baghdad law firm with Salem Chalabi, the nephew of Ahmad Chalabi. WMR learned from a CIA source involved with the Bosnia Defense Fund that the agency was concerned that money transferred by Riggs, the major bank serving Saudi ambassador to the U.S. Prince Bandar and his wife Princess Haifa, to the fund's account at the Central Bank in Sarajevo was "bleeding" to terrorist elements believed to be linked to Osama bin Laden and "Al Qaeda."

When the CIA source complained about Bosnia Defense Fund cash falling into the hands of Islamic terrorists, including people linked to bin Laden, he was told by one of the major Bosnia Defense Fund principals to "just make it fucking happen!" The Bosnia link to "Al Qaeda" was important. In fact, bin Laden had reportedly not only visited Bosnia, but carried at least one Bosnian diplomatic passport and had interfaced with Bosnian diplomats in Vienna, Austria. WMR has learned of a money pipeline between bin Laden and Bosnia that existed since 1993, during a time when French intelligence documents reported that bin Laden and his forces in Darunta, Afghanistan were still under the operational control of the CIA and British intelligence. The financial pipeline between bin Laden and Bosnia included the Third World Relief Agency; an Egyptian-born Saudi businessman named Yasin Kadi (who was once based in Chicago); a Tunisian-born Bosnian named Chafik Ayadi bin Muhammad, who headed Kadi's operations in Zagreb, Croatia; the Sarajevo Deposit Bank of Kadi and Ayadi; and the First Austrian Bank. The Third World Relief Agency connection also provides a link between bin Laden and the Egyptian "blind sheik," Omar Abdel Rahman, convicted for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Yasin Kadi's Chicago link is important. During the time of the Bosnia Defense Fund's money flow to Sarajevo, a deal approved by the Clinton White House and the CIA, the current Democratic House Caucus Chairman and Chicago-based congressman Rahm Emanuel served as Assistant to the President for Political Affairs and Senior Advisor to the President for Policy and Strategy. Emanuel was closely involved with Clinton's foreign policy initiatives in Bosnia and Kosovo and he claims Clinton went to both places to deal with Al Qaeda training. It now appears that Emanuel was telling part of the truth -- the Clinton administration was, in fact, supporting Al Qaeda training in Bosnia and Kosovo. In addition to Perle and Feith being involved with providing money to Bosnian Muslims, with the support of Rahm Emanuel, we also point out credible Serbian reports that fugitive American financier Marc Rich, pardoned by Bill Clinton, was involved in busting international sanctions by smuggling weapons to Bosnian Muslims. Rich's attorney was I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who was recently spared a jail term by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

During the fighting in Bosnia, NATO forces picked up a number of foreign Muslim irregulars. Two of those detained by Norwegian NATO forces later surfaced as Saudi hijackers of the U.S. aircraft on 9/11. There is also intelligence that Egyptian lead hijacker Mohammed Atta worked for U.S.-supported Muslim forces during the Bosnian civil war. Kadi had used Chicago as a base to launder money to various groups affiliated to bin Laden's operations, including a deal involving a DuPage County real estate operation. After leaving the White House in 1999, Emanuel, possessing only a B.A. in Political Science, became a Chicago investment banker for Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein and earned some $20 million . . .

Ironically, Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein is part of Allianz AG, the firm that helped bankroll the Nazis in Germany in the early 1930s along with Brown Brothers Harriman, for whom George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott, was a principal. Prescott also partnered in deals with German industrialist Fritz Thyssen, a major upporter of Adolf Hitler.

Serbian officials would be wise to offer full 24x7 security protection to Hamid. There are several organizations that would stop at nothing to prevent him from talking about what he knows about U.S. and neocon support for Bin Laden and Al Qaeda in the Balkans.

TruthOut  “Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult,
has published an amazing tell all by a former GOP Congressional staffer, Mike Lofgren. The piece, “Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult,” is reprinted below in its entirety. It opens:

Barbara Stanwyck: “We’re both rotten!”

Fred MacMurray: “Yeah — only you’re a little more rotten.” — “Double Indemnity” (1944)

Those lines of dialogue from a classic film noir sum up the state of the two political parties in contemporary America. Both parties are rotten — how could they not be, given the complete infestation of the political system by corporate money on a scale that now requires a presidential candidate to raise upwards of a billion dollars to be competitive in the general election? Both parties are captives to corporate loot.

…. To those millions of Americans who have finally begun paying attention to politics and watched with exasperation the tragicomedy of the debt ceiling extension, it may have come as a shock that the Republican Party is so full of lunatics.

Lofgren retired in June 17 after 28 years as a Congressional staffer. He served for 16 years as a professional staff member on the GOP side of both the House and Senate Budget Committees.

James Fallows, the great columnist for The Atlantic, explains, “Lofgren’s name is barely known to the general public, but among people who have covered or worked in the national-security field, he is a familiar and highly esteemed figure.”

Most of Lofgren’s analysis won’t come as a surprise to most Climate Progress readers, but it is still a must-read for its bluntness and its source. Read it and weep … for the nation and the world.

by Mike Lofgren

… Both parties are captives to corporate loot. The main reason the Democrats’ health care bill will be a budget buster once it fully phases in is the Democrats’ rank capitulation to corporate interests – no single-payer system, in order to mollify the insurers; and no negotiation of drug prices, a craven surrender to Big Pharma.

But both parties are not rotten in quite the same way. The Democrats have their share of machine politicians, careerists, corporate bagmen, egomaniacs and kooks. Nothing, however, quite matches the modern GOP.

To those millions of Americans who have finally begun paying attention to politics and watched with exasperation the tragicomedy of the debt ceiling extension, it may have come as a shock that the Republican Party is so full of lunatics. To be sure, the party, like any political party on earth, has always had its share of crackpots, like Robert K. Dornan or William E. Dannemeyer. But the crackpot outliers of two decades ago have become the vital center today: Steve King, Michele Bachman (now a leading presidential candidate as well), Paul Broun, Patrick McHenry, Virginia Foxx, Louie Gohmert, Allen West. The Congressional directory now reads like a casebook of lunacy.

It was this cast of characters and the pernicious ideas they represent that impelled me to end a nearly 30-year career as a professional staff member on Capitol Hill. A couple of months ago, I retired; but I could see as early as last November that the Republican Party would use the debt limit vote, an otherwise routine legislative procedure that has been used 87 times since the end of World War II, in order to concoct an entirely artificial fiscal crisis. Then, they would use that fiscal crisis to get what they wanted, by literally holding the US and global economies as hostages.

The debt ceiling extension is not the only example of this sort of political terrorism. Republicans were willing to lay off 4,000 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) employees, 70,000 private construction workers and let FAA safety inspectors work without pay, in fact, forcing them to pay for their own work-related travel – how prudent is that? – in order to strong arm some union-busting provisions into the FAA reauthorization.

Everyone knows that in a hostage situation, the reckless and amoral actor has the negotiating upper hand over the cautious and responsible actor because the latter is actually concerned about the life of the hostage, while the former does not care. This fact, which ought to be obvious, has nevertheless caused confusion among the professional pundit class, which is mostly still stuck in the Bob Dole era in terms of its orientation. For instance, Ezra Klein wrote of his puzzlement over the fact that while House Republicans essentially won the debt ceiling fight, enough of them were sufficiently dissatisfied that they might still scuttle the deal. Of course they might – the attitude of many freshman Republicans to national default was “bring it on!”

It should have been evident to clear-eyed observers that the Republican Party is becoming less and less like a traditional political party in a representative democracy and becoming more like an apocalyptic cult, or one of the intensely ideological authoritarian parties of 20th century Europe. This trend has several implications, none of them pleasant.

In his “Manual of Parliamentary Practice,” Thomas Jefferson wrote that it is less important that every rule and custom of a legislature be absolutely justifiable in a theoretical sense, than that they should be generally acknowledged and honored by all parties. These include unwritten rules, customs and courtesies that lubricate the legislative machinery and keep governance a relatively civilized procedure. The US Senate has more complex procedural rules than any other legislative body in the world; many of these rules are contradictory, and on any given day, the Senate parliamentarian may issue a ruling that contradicts earlier rulings on analogous cases.

The only thing that can keep the Senate functioning is collegiality and good faith. During periods of political consensus, for instance, the World War II and early post-war eras, the Senate was a “high functioning” institution: filibusters were rare and the body was legislatively productive. Now, one can no more picture the current Senate producing the original Medicare Act than the old Supreme Soviet having legislated the Bill of Rights.

Far from being a rarity, virtually every bill, every nominee for Senate confirmation and every routine procedural motion is now subject to a Republican filibuster. Under the circumstances, it is no wonder that Washington is gridlocked: legislating has now become war minus the shooting, something one could have observed 80 years ago in the Reichstag of the Weimar Republic. As Hannah Arendt observed, a disciplined minority of totalitarians can use the instruments of democratic government to undermine democracy itself.

John P. Judis sums up the modern GOP this way:

“Over the last four decades, the Republican Party has transformed from a loyal opposition into an insurrectionary party that flouts the law when it is in the majority and threatens disorder when it is the minority. It is the party of Watergate and Iran-Contra, but also of the government shutdown in 1995 and the impeachment trial of 1999. If there is an earlier American precedent for today’s Republican Party, it is the antebellum Southern Democrats of John Calhoun who threatened to nullify, or disregard, federal legislation they objected to and who later led the fight to secede from the union over slavery.”

A couple of years ago, a Republican committee staff director told me candidly (and proudly) what the method was to all this obstruction and disruption. Should Republicans succeed in obstructing the Senate from doing its job, it would further lower Congress’s generic favorability rating among the American people. By sabotaging the reputation of an institution of government, the party that is programmatically against government would come out the relative winner.

A deeply cynical tactic, to be sure, but a psychologically insightful one that plays on the weaknesses both of the voting public and the news media. There are tens of millions of low-information voters who hardly know which party controls which branch of government, let alone which party is pursuing a particular legislative tactic. These voters’ confusion over who did what allows them to form the conclusion that “they are all crooks,” and that “government is no good,” further leading them to think, “a plague on both your houses” and “the parties are like two kids in a school yard.” This ill-informed public cynicism, in its turn, further intensifies the long-term decline in public trust in government that has been taking place since the early 1960s – a distrust that has been stoked by Republican rhetoric at every turn (“Government is the problem,” declared Ronald Reagan in 1980).

The media are also complicit in this phenomenon. Ever since the bifurcation of electronic media into a more or less respectable “hard news” segment and a rabidly ideological talk radio and cable TV political propaganda arm, the “respectable” media have been terrified of any criticism for perceived bias. Hence, they hew to the practice of false evenhandedness. Paul Krugman has skewered this tactic as being the “centrist cop-out.” “I joked long ago,” he says, “that if one party declared that the earth was flat, the headlines would read ‘Views Differ on Shape of Planet.’”

Inside-the-Beltway wise guy Chris Cillizza merely proves Krugman right in his Washington Post analysis of “winners and losers” in the debt ceiling impasse. He wrote that the institution of Congress was a big loser in the fracas, which is, of course, correct, but then he opined: “Lawmakers – bless their hearts – seem entirely unaware of just how bad they looked during this fight and will almost certainly spend the next few weeks (or months) congratulating themselves on their tremendous magnanimity.” Note how the pundit’s ironic deprecation falls like the rain on the just and unjust alike, on those who precipitated the needless crisis and those who despaired of it. He seems oblivious that one side – or a sizable faction of one side – has deliberately attempted to damage the reputation of Congress to achieve its political objectives.

This constant drizzle of “there the two parties go again!” stories out of the news bureaus, combined with the hazy confusion of low-information voters, means that the long-term Republican strategy of undermining confidence in our democratic institutions has reaped electoral dividends. The United States has nearly the lowest voter participation among Western democracies; this, again, is a consequence of the decline of trust in government institutions – if government is a racket and both parties are the same, why vote? And if the uninvolved middle declines to vote, it increases the electoral clout of a minority that is constantly being whipped into a lather by three hours daily of Rush Limbaugh or Fox News. There were only 44 million Republican voters in the 2010 mid-term elections, but they effectively canceled the political results of the election of President Obama by 69 million voters.

This tactic of inducing public distrust of government is not only cynical, it is schizophrenic. For people who profess to revere the Constitution, it is strange that they so caustically denigrate the very federal government that is the material expression of the principles embodied in that document. This is not to say that there is not some theoretical limit to the size or intrusiveness of government; I would be the first to say there are such limits, both fiscal and Constitutional. But most Republican officeholders seem strangely uninterested in the effective repeal of Fourth Amendment protections by the Patriot Act, the weakening of habeas corpus and self-incrimination protections in the public hysteria following 9/11 or the unpalatable fact that the United States has the largest incarcerated population of any country on earth. If anything, they would probably opt for more incarcerated persons, as imprisonment is a profit center for the prison privatization industry, which is itself a growth center for political contributions to these same politicians.[1] Instead, they prefer to rail against those government programs that actually help people. And when a program is too popular to attack directly, like Medicare or Social Security, they prefer to undermine it by feigning an agonized concern about the deficit. That concern, as we shall see, is largely fictitious.

Undermining Americans’ belief in their own institutions of self-government remains a prime GOP electoral strategy. But if this technique falls short of producing Karl Rove’s dream of 30 years of unchallengeable one-party rule (as all such techniques always fall short of achieving the angry and embittered true believer’s New Jerusalem), there are other even less savory techniques upon which to fall back. Ever since Republicans captured the majority in a number of state legislatures last November, they have systematically attempted to make it more difficult to vote: by onerous voter ID requirements (in Wisconsin, Republicans have legislated photo IDs while simultaneously shutting Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices in Democratic constituencies while at the same time lengthening the hours of operation of DMV offices in GOP constituencies); by narrowing registration periods; and by residency requirements that may disenfranchise university students.

This legislative assault is moving in a diametrically opposed direction to 200 years of American history, when the arrow of progress pointed toward more political participation by more citizens. Republicans are among the most shrill in self-righteously lecturing other countries about the wonders of democracy; exporting democracy (albeit at the barrel of a gun) to the Middle East was a signature policy of the Bush administration. But domestically, they don’t want those people voting.

You can probably guess who those people are. Above all, anyone not likely to vote Republican. As Sarah Palin would imply, the people who are not Real Americans. Racial minorities. Immigrants. Muslims. Gays. Intellectuals. Basically, anyone who doesn’t look, think, or talk like the GOP base. This must account, at least to some degree, for their extraordinarily vitriolic hatred of President Obama. I have joked in the past that the main administration policy that Republicans object to is Obama’s policy of being black.[2] Among the GOP base, there is constant harping about somebody else, some “other,” who is deliberately, assiduously and with malice aforethought subverting the Good, the True and the Beautiful: Subversives. Commies. Socialists. Ragheads. Secular humanists. Blacks. Fags. Feminazis. The list may change with the political needs of the moment, but they always seem to need a scapegoat to hate and fear.

It is not clear to me how many GOP officeholders believe this reactionary and paranoid claptrap. I would bet that most do not. But they cynically feed the worst instincts of their fearful and angry low-information political base with a nod and a wink. During the disgraceful circus of the “birther” issue, Republican politicians subtly stoked the fires of paranoia by being suggestively equivocal – “I take the president at his word” – while never unambiguously slapping down the myth. John Huntsman was the first major GOP figure forthrightly to refute the birther calumny – albeit after release of the birth certificate.

I do not mean to place too much emphasis on racial animus in the GOP. While it surely exists, it is also a fact that Republicans think that no Democratic president could conceivably be legitimate. Republicans also regarded Bill Clinton as somehow, in some manner, twice fraudulently elected (well do I remember the elaborate conspiracy theories that Republicans traded among themselves). Had it been Hillary Clinton, rather than Barack Obama, who had been elected in 2008, I am certain we would now be hearing, in lieu of the birther myths, conspiracy theories about Vince Foster’s alleged murder.

The reader may think that I am attributing Svengali-like powers to GOP operatives able to manipulate a zombie base to do their bidding. It is more complicated than that. Historical circumstances produced the raw material: the deindustrialization and financialization of America since about 1970 has spawned an increasingly downscale white middle class – without job security (or even without jobs), with pensions and health benefits evaporating and with their principal asset deflating in the collapse of the housing bubble. Their fears are not imaginary; their standard of living is shrinking.

What do the Democrats offer these people? Essentially nothing. Democratic Leadership Council-style “centrist” Democrats were among the biggest promoters of disastrous trade deals in the 1990s that outsourced jobs abroad: NAFTA, World Trade Organization, permanent most-favored-nation status for China. At the same time, the identity politics/lifestyle wing of the Democratic Party was seen as a too illegal immigrant-friendly by downscaled and outsourced whites.[3]

While Democrats temporized, or even dismissed the fears of the white working class as racist or nativist, Republicans went to work. To be sure, the business wing of the Republican Party consists of the most energetic outsourcers, wage cutters and hirers of sub-minimum wage immigrant labor to be found anywhere on the globe. But the faux-populist wing of the party, knowing the mental compartmentalization that occurs in most low-information voters, played on the fears of that same white working class to focus their anger on scapegoats that do no damage to corporations’ bottom lines: instead of raising the minimum wage, let’s build a wall on the Southern border (then hire a defense contractor to incompetently manage it). Instead of predatory bankers, it’s evil Muslims. Or evil gays. Or evil abortionists.

How do they manage to do this? Because Democrats ceded the field. Above all, they do not understand language. Their initiatives are posed in impenetrable policy-speak: the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The what? – can anyone even remember it? No wonder the pejorative “Obamacare” won out. Contrast that with the Republicans’ Patriot Act. You’re a patriot, aren’t you? Does anyone at the GED level have a clue what a Stimulus Bill is supposed to be? Why didn’t the White House call it the Jobs Bill and keep pounding on that theme?

You know that Social Security and Medicare are in jeopardy when even Democrats refer to them as entitlements. “Entitlement” has a negative sound in colloquial English: somebody who is “entitled” selfishly claims something he doesn’t really deserve. Why not call them “earned benefits,” which is what they are because we all contribute payroll taxes to fund them? That would never occur to the Democrats. Republicans don’t make that mistake; they are relentlessly on message: it is never the “estate tax,” it is the “death tax.” Heaven forbid that the Walton family should give up one penny of its $86-billion fortune. All of that lucre is necessary to ensure that unions be kept out of Wal-Mart, that women employees not be promoted and that politicians be kept on a short leash.

It was not always thus. It would have been hard to find an uneducated farmer during the depression of the 1890s who did not have a very accurate idea about exactly which economic interests were shafting him. An unemployed worker in a breadline in 1932 would have felt little gratitude to the Rockefellers or the Mellons. But that is not the case in the present economic crisis. After a riot of unbridled greed such as the world has not seen since the conquistadors’ looting expeditions and after an unprecedented broad and rapid transfer of wealth upward by Wall Street and its corporate satellites, where is the popular anger directed, at least as depicted in the media? At “Washington spending” – which has increased primarily to provide unemployment compensation, food stamps and Medicaid to those economically damaged by the previous decade’s corporate saturnalia. Or the popular rage is harmlessly diverted against pseudo-issues: death panels, birtherism, gay marriage, abortion, and so on, none of which stands to dent the corporate bottom line in the slightest.

Thus far, I have concentrated on Republican tactics, rather than Republican beliefs, but the tactics themselves are important indicators of an absolutist, authoritarian mindset that is increasingly hostile to the democratic values of reason, compromise and conciliation. Rather, this mindset seeks polarizing division (Karl Rove has been very explicit that this is his principal campaign strategy), conflict and the crushing of opposition.

As for what they really believe, the Republican Party of 2011 believes in three principal tenets I have laid out below. The rest of their platform one may safely dismiss as window dressing:

1. The GOP cares solely and exclusively about its rich contributors. The party has built a whole catechism on the protection and further enrichment of America’s plutocracy. Their caterwauling about deficit and debt is so much eyewash to con the public. Whatever else President Obama has accomplished (and many of his purported accomplishments are highly suspect), his $4-trillion deficit reduction package did perform the useful service of smoking out Republican hypocrisy. The GOP refused, because it could not abide so much as a one-tenth of one percent increase on the tax rates of the Walton family or the Koch brothers, much less a repeal of the carried interest rule that permits billionaire hedge fund managers to pay income tax at a lower effective rate than cops or nurses. Republicans finally settled on a deal that had far less deficit reduction – and even less spending reduction! – than Obama’s offer, because of their iron resolution to protect at all costs our society’s overclass.

Republicans have attempted to camouflage their amorous solicitude for billionaires with a fog of misleading rhetoric. John Boehner is fond of saying, “we won’t raise anyone’s taxes,” as if the take-home pay of an Olive Garden waitress were inextricably bound up with whether Warren Buffett pays his capital gains as ordinary income or at a lower rate. Another chestnut is that millionaires and billionaires are “job creators.” US corporations have just had their most profitable quarters in history; Apple, for one, is sitting on $76 billion in cash, more than the GDP of most countries. So, where are the jobs?

Another smokescreen is the “small business” meme, since standing up for Mom’s and Pop’s corner store is politically more attractive than to be seen shilling for a megacorporation. Raising taxes on the wealthy will kill small business’ ability to hire; that is the GOP dirge every time Bernie Sanders or some Democrat offers an amendment to increase taxes on incomes above $1 million. But the number of small businesses that have a net annual income over a million dollars is de minimis, if not by definition impossible (as they would no longer be small businesses). And as data from the Center for Economic and Policy Research have shown, small businesses account for only 7.2 percent of total US employment, a significantly smaller share of total employment than in most Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries.

Likewise, Republicans have assiduously spread the myth that Americans are conspicuously overtaxed. But compared to other OECD countries, the effective rates of US taxation are among the lowest. In particular, they point to the top corporate income rate of 35 percent as being confiscatory Bolshevism. But again, the effective rate is much lower. Did GE pay 35 percent on 2010 profits of $14 billion? No, it paid zero.

When pressed, Republicans make up misleading statistics to “prove” that the America’s fiscal burden is being borne by the rich and the rest of us are just freeloaders who don’t appreciate that fact. “Half of Americans don’t pay taxes” is a perennial meme. But what they leave out is that that statement refers to federal income taxes. There are millions of people who don’t pay income taxes, but do contribute payroll taxes – among the most regressive forms of taxation. But according to GOP fiscal theology, payroll taxes don’t count. Somehow, they have convinced themselves that since payroll taxes go into trust funds, they’re not real taxes. Likewise, state and local sales taxes apparently don’t count, although their effect on a poor person buying necessities like foodstuffs is far more regressive than on a millionaire.

All of these half truths and outright lies have seeped into popular culture via the corporate-owned business press. Just listen to CNBC for a few hours and you will hear most of them in one form or another. More important politically, Republicans’ myths about taxation have been internalized by millions of economically downscale “values voters,” who may have been attracted to the GOP for other reasons (which I will explain later), but who now accept this misinformation as dogma.

And when misinformation isn’t enough to sustain popular support for the GOP’s agenda, concealment is needed. One fairly innocuous provision in the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill requires public companies to make a more transparent disclosure of CEO compensation, including bonuses. Note that it would not limit the compensation, only require full disclosure. Republicans are hell-bent on repealing this provision. Of course; it would not serve Wall Street interests if the public took an unhealthy interest in the disparity of their own incomes as against that of a bank CEO. As Spencer Bachus, the Republican chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, says, “In Washington, the view is that the banks are to be regulated and my view is that Washington and the regulators are there to serve the banks.”

2. They worship at the altar of Mars. While the me-too Democrats have set a horrible example of keeping up with the Joneses with respect to waging wars, they can never match GOP stalwarts such as John McCain or Lindsey Graham in their sheer, libidinous enthusiasm for invading other countries. McCain wanted to mix it up with Russia – a nuclear-armed state – during the latter’s conflict with Georgia in 2008 (remember? – “we are all Georgians now,” a slogan that did not, fortunately, catch on), while Graham has been persistently agitating for attacks on Iran and intervention in Syria. And these are not fringe elements of the party; they are the leading “defense experts,” who always get tapped for the Sunday talk shows. About a month before Republicans began holding a gun to the head of the credit markets to get trillions of dollars of cuts, these same Republicans passed a defense appropriations bill that increased spending by $17 billion over the prior year’s defense appropriation. To borrow Chris Hedges’ formulation, war is the force that gives meaning to their lives.

A cynic might conclude that this militaristic enthusiasm is no more complicated than the fact that Pentagon contractors spread a lot of bribery money around Capitol Hill. That is true, but there is more to it than that. It is not necessarily even the fact that members of Congress feel they are protecting constituents’ jobs. The wildly uneven concentration of defense contracts and military bases nationally means that some areas, like Washington, DC, and San Diego, are heavily dependent on Department of Defense (DOD) spending. But there are many more areas of the country whose net balance is negative: the citizenry pays more in taxes to support the Pentagon than it receives back in local contracts.

And the economic justification for Pentagon spending is even more fallacious when one considers that the $700 billion annual DOD budget creates comparatively few jobs. The days of Rosie the Riveter are long gone; most weapons projects now require very little touch labor. Instead, a disproportionate share is siphoned off into high-cost research and development (from which the civilian economy benefits little); exorbitant management expenditures, overhead and out-and-out padding; and, of course, the money that flows back into the coffers of political campaigns. A million dollars appropriated for highway construction would create two to three times as many jobs as a million dollars appropriated for Pentagon weapons procurement, so the jobs argument is ultimately specious.

Take away the cash nexus and there still remains a psychological predisposition toward war and militarism on the part of the GOP. This undoubtedly arises from a neurotic need to demonstrate toughness and dovetails perfectly with the belligerent tough-guy pose one constantly hears on right-wing talk radio. Militarism springs from the same psychological deficit that requires an endless series of enemies, both foreign and domestic.

The results of the last decade of unbridled militarism and the Democrats’ cowardly refusal to reverse it[4], have been disastrous both strategically and fiscally. It has made the United States less prosperous, less secure and less free. Unfortunately, the militarism and the promiscuous intervention it gives rise to are only likely to abate when the Treasury is exhausted, just as it happened to the Dutch Republic and the British Empire.

3. Give me that old time religion. Pandering to fundamentalism is a full-time vocation in the GOP. Beginning in the 1970s, religious cranks ceased simply to be a minor public nuisance in this country and grew into the major element of the Republican rank and file. Pat Robertson’s strong showing in the 1988 Iowa Caucus signaled the gradual merger of politics and religion in the party. The results are all around us: if the American people poll more like Iranians or Nigerians than Europeans or Canadians on questions of evolution versus creationism, scriptural inerrancy, the existence of angels and demons, and so forth, that result is due to the rise of the religious right, its insertion into the public sphere by the Republican Party and the consequent normalizing of formerly reactionary or quaint beliefs. Also around us is a prevailing anti-intellectualism and hostility to science; it is this group that defines “low-information voter” – or, perhaps, “misinformation voter.”

The Constitution to the contrary notwithstanding, there is now a de facto religious test for the presidency: major candidates are encouraged (or coerced) to “share their feelings” about their “faith” in a revelatory speech; or, some televangelist like Rick Warren dragoons the candidates (as he did with Obama and McCain in 2008) to debate the finer points of Christology, with Warren himself, of course, as the arbiter. Politicized religion is also the sheet anchor of the culture wars. But how did the whole toxic stew of GOP beliefs – economic royalism, militarism and culture wars cum fundamentalism – come completely to displace an erstwhile civilized Eisenhower Republicanism?

It is my view that the rise of politicized religious fundamentalism (which is a subset of the decline of rational problem solving in America) may have been the key ingredient of the takeover of the Republican Party. For politicized religion provides a substrate of beliefs that rationalizes – at least in the minds of followers – all three of the GOP’s main tenets.

Televangelists have long espoused the health-and-wealth/name-it-and-claim it gospel. If you are wealthy, it is a sign of God’s favor. If not, too bad! But don’t forget to tithe in any case. This rationale may explain why some economically downscale whites defend the prerogatives of billionaires.

The GOP’s fascination with war is also connected with the fundamentalist mindset. The Old Testament abounds in tales of slaughter – God ordering the killing of the Midianite male infants and enslavement of the balance of the population, the divinely-inspired genocide of the Canaanites, the slaying of various miscreants with the jawbone of an ass – and since American religious fundamentalist seem to prefer the Old Testament to the New (particularly that portion of the New Testament known as the Sermon on the Mount), it is but a short step to approving war as a divinely inspired mission. This sort of thinking has led, inexorably, to such phenomena as Jerry Falwell once writing that God is Pro-War.

It is the apocalyptic frame of reference of fundamentalists, their belief in an imminent Armageddon, that psychologically conditions them to steer this country into conflict, not only on foreign fields (some evangelicals thought Saddam was the Antichrist and therefore a suitable target for cruise missiles), but also in the realm of domestic political controversy. It is hardly surprising that the most adamant proponent of the view that there was no debt ceiling problem was Michele Bachmann, the darling of the fundamentalist right. What does it matter, anyway, if the country defaults? – we shall presently abide in the bosom of the Lord.

Some liberal writers have opined that the different socio-economic perspectives separating the “business” wing of the GOP and the religious right make it an unstable coalition that could crack. I am not so sure. There is no fundamental disagreement on which direction the two factions want to take the country, merely how far in that direction they want to take it. The plutocrats would drag us back to the Gilded Age, the theocrats to the Salem witch trials. In any case, those consummate plutocrats, the Koch brothers, are pumping large sums of money into Michele Bachman’s presidential campaign, so one ought not make too much of a potential plutocrat-theocrat split.

Thus, the modern GOP; it hardly seems conceivable that a Republican could have written the following:

“Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.” (That was President Eisenhower, writing to his brother Edgar in 1954.)

It is this broad and ever-widening gulf between the traditional Republicanism of an Eisenhower and the quasi-totalitarian cult of a Michele Bachmann that impelled my departure from Capitol Hill. It is not in my pragmatic nature to make a heroic gesture of self-immolation, or to make lurid revelations of personal martyrdom in the manner of David Brock. And I will leave a more detailed dissection of failed Republican economic policies to my fellow apostate Bruce Bartlett.

I left because I was appalled at the headlong rush of Republicans, like Gadarene swine, to embrace policies that are deeply damaging to this country’s future; and contemptuous of the feckless, craven incompetence of Democrats in their half-hearted attempts to stop them. And, in truth, I left as an act of rational self-interest. Having gutted private-sector pensions and health benefits as a result of their embrace of outsourcing, union busting and “shareholder value,” the GOP now thinks it is only fair that public-sector workers give up their pensions and benefits, too. Hence the intensification of the GOP’s decades-long campaign of scorn against government workers. Under the circumstances, it is simply safer to be a current retiree rather than a prospective one.

If you think Paul Ryan and his Ayn Rand-worshipping colleagues aren’t after your Social Security and Medicare, I am here to disabuse you of your naiveté.[5] They will move heaven and earth to force through tax cuts that will so starve the government of revenue that they will be “forced” to make “hard choices” – and that doesn’t mean repealing those very same tax cuts, it means cutting the benefits for which you worked.

During the week that this piece was written, the debt ceiling fiasco reached its conclusion. The economy was already weak, but the GOP’s disgraceful game of chicken roiled the markets even further. Foreigners could hardly believe it: Americans’ own crazy political actions were destabilizing the safe-haven status of the dollar. Accordingly, during that same week, over one trillion dollars worth of assets evaporated on financial markets. Russia and China have stepped up their advocating that the dollar be replaced as the global reserve currency – a move as consequential and disastrous for US interests as any that can be imagined.

If Republicans have perfected a new form of politics that is successful electorally at the same time that it unleashes major policy disasters, it means twilight both for the democratic process and America’s status as the world’s leading power.

Footnotes:

[1] I am not exaggerating for effect. A law passed in 2010 by the Arizona legislature mandating arrest and incarceration of suspected illegal aliens was actually drafted by the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative business front group that drafts “model” legislation on behalf of its corporate sponsors. The draft legislation in question was written for the private prison lobby, which sensed a growth opportunity in imprisoning more people.

[2] I am not a supporter of Obama and object to a number of his foreign and domestic policies. But when he took office amid the greatest financial collapse in 80 years, I wanted him to succeed, so that the country I served did not fail. But already in 2009, Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, declared that his greatest legislative priority was – jobs for Americans? Rescuing the financial system? Solving the housing collapse? – no, none of those things. His top priority was to ensure that Obama should be a one-term president. Evidently Senator McConnell hates Obama more than he loves his country. Note that the mainstream media have lately been hailing McConnell as “the adult in the room,” presumably because he is less visibly unstable than the Tea Party freshmen

[3] This is not a venue for immigrant bashing. It remains a fact that outsourcing jobs overseas, while insourcing sub-minimum wage immigrant labor, will exert downward pressure on US wages. The consequence will be popular anger, and failure to address that anger will result in a downward wage spiral and a breech of the social compact, not to mention a rise in nativism and other reactionary impulses. It does no good to claim that these economic consequences are an inevitable result of globalization; Germany has somehow managed to maintain a high-wage economy and a vigorous industrial base.

[4] The cowardice is not merely political. During the past ten years, I have observed that Democrats are actually growing afraid of Republicans. In a quirky and flawed, but insightful, little book, “Democracy and Populism: Fear and Hatred,” John Lukacs concludes that the left fears, the right hates.

[5] The GOP cult of Ayn Rand is both revealing and mystifying. On the one hand, Rand’s tough guy, every-man-for-himself posturing is a natural fit because it puts a philosophical gloss on the latent sociopathy so prevalent among the hard right. On the other, Rand exclaimed at every opportunity that she was a militant atheist who felt nothing but contempt for Christianity. Apparently, the ignorance of most fundamentalist “values voters” means that GOP candidates who enthuse over Rand at the same time they thump their Bibles never have to explain this stark contradiction. And I imagine a Democratic officeholder would have a harder time explaining why he named his offspring “Marx” than a GOP incumbent would in rationalizing naming his kid “Rand.”

WMR -- Meet the Shysters  September 3-4, 2012  The Republican National Convention in Tampa
The Republican National Convention in Tampa was a comedy of errors and mismanagement that included Clint Eastwood's tortured re-enactment of Jimmy Stewart's performance of talking to an invisible rabbit named Harvey (in Eastwood's case, he was talking to a chair where an invisible Barack Obama was supposedly sitting), a delegate shouting "Oh, no, no, don't touch me!" to a bewildered Mitt Romney, and a walk-out by infuriated Ron Paul delegates. But even in mis-management, there is a silver lining. WMR obtained a listing of all the delegates and alternates who attended the RNC.

A complete list of the delegates to presidential nominating conventions is never easy to come by in an era where politics, for the most part, is "pay-to-play." Yet how often do you hear about that kind of secrecy, except here?

Although many of the delegates were clearly low- and mid- level Republican Party activists, others stand out as examples of how the Republican Party is dominated by billionaires and/or pro-Israel AIPACers, and corrupt politicians.

So, now, ladies and gentlemen, it's time to play "Meet the Shysters." Let's start with New York, "The Shyster State."

RONALD REAGAN, then: (it must really piss-off both Georgies, always playing 2nd fiddle to RR.  Doesn't look like Bush is going to get his puppet regime in Iraq,....he may even eventually be known as the U.S. President who helped create the richest Islamic Fundamentalist country with hundreds of Billions of barrels of oil at it's disposal!
Introduction and Preamble (Freeing the slaves emphasis?...but fewer than 10% of Black-Americans vote Republican)
One hundred and fifty years ago, Americans who had gathered to protest the
expansion of slavery gave birth to a political Party that would save the Union – the
Republican Party.
In 1860, Abraham Lincoln of Illinois carried the Republican banner in the
Presidential election and was elected the Party’s first President. He became our nation’s
greatest leader … and one of our Party’s greatest heroes.
Every day, we strive to fulfill Lincoln’s vision: a country united and free, in
which all people are guaranteed equal rights and the opportunity to pursue their dreams.
His legacy goes beyond the borders of America. It can be seen in free governments all
over the world.
Lincoln’s successors have been united by a common purpose – defending
freedom at home and promoting it abroad.  (freedom, liberty are code words for wealth accumulation)
Bush Visionary?, Page 1
"Thanks to President Bush’s leadership, the skill of the American military, and the
commitment of our allies (?), today there are more than 50 million newly free people in the
nations of Afghanistan and Iraq – and America is safer." (?)

"He worked with Congress to strengthen Medicare by adding a prescription drug
benefit and giving seniors more choices to meet their individual health care needs.
And the President worked with Congress to pass historic education reforms to
ensure that every child can read. Today, higher standards and stronger accountability are
getting results in classrooms across America."  (pro voucher, anti-public schools)

"Winning the War on Terror …
because our government’s most solemn duty is to keep its citizens safe.
Ushering in an Ownership Era …
because a vibrant entrepreneurial spirit will keep our economy strong and
provide more opportunities for workers and families.
Building an Innovative Economy to Compete in the World …
because America can compete with anyone, anywhere, thanks to our entrepreneurs and
risk-takers who keep us on the cutting edge of technology and commerce.  Wealthy superiortiy
Strengthening Our Communities …
because our children deserve to grow up in an America in which all their hopes and
dreams can come true.
Protecting Our Families …
because we respect the family’s role as a touchstone of stability and strength in an ever-changing
world."
 
Linking the Iraq War with 9/11, Page 5
"A Comprehensive Strategy to Win the War on Terror, Promote Peace,
and Build a Better World
The world changed on September 11, 2001, and since that day, under the strong,
steady, and visionary leadership of President George W. Bush, Americans have helped
make the world not only safer, but better. The President continues to lead a steady,
confident, systematic campaign to defend America against the dangers of our time. We
are going after terrorists wherever they plot and plan and hide, changing the old course of
pinprick strikes that did little to get at the root of terrorism. We eliminated many of al
Qaeda’s key leaders and put the world on notice that nations that train, harbor, or finance
terrorists are just as guilty as the terrorists themselves.
We will not allow the world’s most dangerous regimes to possess the world’s
most dangerous weapons. (Iraq Invasion link to 9/11) Our message is getting through, as indicated by Libya’s leader,
who decided to turn over his weapons of mass destruction and cooperate with the
international community. Today, because America has acted, and because America has
led, the forces of terror and tyranny have suffered defeat after defeat, and America and
the world are safer.
On September 11, 2001, we saw the cruelty of the terrorists, and we glimpsed the
future they intend for us. They intend to strike the United States to the limits of their
power. They seek weapons of mass destruction (State of the Union Address deception?)to kill Americans on an even greater
scale. This danger is increased when outlaw regimes build or acquire weapons of mass
destruction and maintain ties to terrorist groups.
On September 11, 2001, we saw the spirit of courage and optimism of the
American people – that greatest assurance of the ultimate triumph of our cause. Courage and optimism led colleagues to help each other in escaping from collapsing buildings.  Courage and optimism led policemen, firefighters, emergency medical professionals, public works employees, our men and women in uniform, and selfless volunteers to run into burning buildings to save others and undertake a mammoth rescue and recovery effort. Courage and optimism led the passengers on Flight 93 to rush their murderers to save lives on the ground. (No mention of Flight 77?)
Courage and optimism led America’s parents and teachers to battle their own fears to keep children calm and safe. In those and countless other acts of heroism on that day, and many times since, terrorists have learned that Americans will not be intimidated. We will fight them with everything we have – and we will prevail.
President Bush answered the challenge of September 11, 2001, not only with
steadfast resolve, but also with vision, optimism, and unshakable confidence in the will
and faith of the American people. That is what we all saw on September 14, 2001, when
our President stood with the brave workers at Ground Zero and resolutely assured our
nation amidst our shock, anger, and grief that while the terrorists had struck first,
America would have the last word."  (EPA deception on of air quality at Ground Zero)
(Iraq War link to 9/11) 
Patriot Act, page 6
To protect our people, President Bush is leading America, staying on the
offensive against threats within our own country. He worked with Congress to establish the Department of Homeland Security (initially resisted by Bush) in the most significant reorganization of the federal government since 1947. The PATRIOT Act is being used to track terrorist activity and to break up terror cells. Now, the FBI can use tools that have been long available to fight organized crime and drug trafficking, (use terrorism argument to conduct domestic surveillance) 
but could not be used in the past to fight terrorism. Intelligence and law enforcement officials are sharing information as never before. The President transformed the mission of the FBI to focus first and foremost on preventing terrorism. Every element of America’s homeland security plan is critical, because the terrorists are ruthless and resourceful – and we know they are preparing to attack us again.  Would not appear before 9/11 Commission without Cheney)
Preemption, page 6
President Bush recognized that to overcome the dangers of our time, America
would have to take a new approach in the world. That approach is marked by a
determination to challenge new threats, not ignore them, or simply wait for future tragedy
'Terrorism', impediment to 'capitalism', page 6
“The supreme purpose of our foreign policy must be to maintain our
freedom in a peaceful international environment in which the United States and our allies and friends are secure against military threats, and democratic governments are
flourishing in a world of increasing prosperity.”
Broad definition of the 'enemy to capitalism': 'terrorist', page 7
"Republicans support President Bush’s steadfast commitment to the goal of a
lasting, democratic peace, in which all nations are free from the threat of sudden terror.  We affirm the three commitments of the President’s strategy for peace:
• Terrorists long ago declared war on America, and now America has declared war
against terrorists. We are defending the peace by taking the fight to the enemy. We are
confronting terrorists overseas so we do not have to confront them here at home. (al Queda substantially 
larger since Bush premption)
• Nations that support terrorism are just as dangerous, and just as guilty, as the
perpetrators of terrorism. Every nation must make a choice to support terror or to support America and our coalition to defeat terror. We are preserving the peace by working with more than 80  (Coalition of the Coerced) allied nations, as well as international institutions, to isolate and confront terrorists and outlaw regimes. America is leading a broad coalition of nations to disrupt
proliferation. We are working with the United Nations, the International Atomic Energy (BS)
Agency, (warned Bush of high explosives not being guarded properly) and other international organizations to take action in our common security. The global threat of terrorism requires a global response. To be effective, that global response requires leadership – and America is leading.
• There is no negotiation with terrorists. No form of therapy or coercion will turn
them from their murderous ways. Only total and complete destruction of terrorism will
allow freedom to flourish. We will extend the peace by supporting the rise of democracy, and the hope and progress that democracy brings, as the alternative to hatred and terror in the broader Middle East. In democratic societies, men and women do not swear allegiance to malcontents and murderers; they turn their hearts and labor to building  (War on Muslims)
better lives. Democratic governments do not shelter terrorist camps or attack their
neighbors. When justice and democracy advance, so does the hope of lasting peace.".  
 
Afghanistan Spin, no mention that Afghanistan is the opium capital of the world, again.  page 7
"Today, al Qaeda has been wounded, having lost many of its known leaders and
most of its important sanctuaries. America and its allies and friends have broken al Qaeda cells here in the United States and overseas. 
Saudi Arabia Spin and protection from scrutiny and involvement in 9/11. page 8
"Three years ago, terrorists were well-established in Saudi Arabia. Inside that
country, fundraisers and other facilitators gave al Qaeda financial and logistical help with little scrutiny or opposition.  Today, after the attacks in Riyadh and elsewhere, the Saudi government knows that al Qaeda is its enemy. Saudi Arabia is working hard to shut down the facilitators and financial supporters of terrorism. 
Coalition Spin, page 9, 31, 34
"Republicans appreciate the military, financial, and technical assistance provided
by the dozens of nations contributing to the reconstruction of Afghanistan and Iraq. The success of free and stable governments in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere will further shrink the space in which terrorists can operate. As the entire region sees the promise of"....  (Large 
regions of Afghanistan not under Karzai puppet control)
freedom in its midst, the terrorist ideology will become more and more irrelevant, until
that day when it is viewed with contempt or ignored altogether."
Blame the CIA. Where's the WMD????????????? page 10
"As Republicans, we do not equivocate, as others have done, about whether
America should have gone to war in Iraq. The best intelligence available at the time
indicated that Saddam Hussein was a threat. On that point, President Bush, members of
both parties in Congress, and the United Nations agreed. While the stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction we expected to find in Iraq have not yet materialized, we have confirmed that Saddam Hussein had the capability to reconstitute his weapons programs and the desire to do so. (WMD?) Our nation did the right thing, and the American people are now safer because we and our allies ended the brutal dictatorship of Saddam Hussein, halting his decades-long pursuit of chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons. President Bush had a choice to make: Trust a madman or defend America. He chose defending America."
Bush opposers are same as terrorists, page 11
"We condemn inconsistent, ambiguous, and politically expedient statements on
that point. To the extent such wavering encourages our adversaries to fight harder, our
men and women in uniform suffer the consequences. Their mission is difficult enough.
Uncertainty about America’s commitment to that mission makes it immeasurably more
difficult."
The real reason for the Iraq War, page 12
"We applaud President Bush for establishing a visionary and resolute policy – a
Forward Strategy of Freedom in the Middle East – to stand with the people of that region as they seek their future in freedom. Republicans support President Bush’s policy of working with every government in the Middle East dedicated to destroying the terrorist networks, while in the longer term expecting a higher standard of reform and democracy

• putting in place major new biodefense capabilities; • creating the Container Security Initiative to screen cargo destined for the United States; and
deploying missile defenses to defend the United States and its friends and allies.
Veterans, page 20
As the traditional advocate of America’s veterans, the Republican Party has
continued to fulfill America’s obligations to them. When President Bush took office,
many of the programs designed to assist veterans cried out for modernization and reform.  President Bush and Congress have increased funding for VA health care by more than 40 percent since 2001. This additional funding has made it possible for the VA to improve health care access for veterans who need it most, including low-income veterans, those with service-related disabilities, and those who need VA’s specialized services. President Bush signed into law authorization for the concurrent receipt of both military retired pay and VA disability compensation for combat-injured and highly-disabled veterans. 
Free trade strategies, page 22, 26, 36
Decades of massive development assistance have failed to spur economic growth
in the poorest countries. Worse, development aid has often served to prop up failed
policies, relieving the pressure for reform and perpetuating misery. Results of aid are
typically measured in dollars spent by donors, not in the rates of growth and poverty
reduction achieved by recipients. These are the indicators of a failed strategy.

Development in Monterrey that the objectives of assistance – and the strategies to
achieve those objectives – must change.....providing resources through the

"Republicans support the leadership of the President and the Republican Congress
to advance prosperity throughout the Americas through free trade. We applaud the U.S.-Chile Free Trade Agreement implemented by the Bush Administration – the first such agreement with a South American nation in U.S. history. We also applaud President Bush’s conclusion of a free trade agreement with six countries in our neighborhood – Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic.  We support the President’s goal of negotiating free trade agreements with Panama and the Andean nations. These initiatives complement the goal of achieving a genuine, comprehensive free trade area in the hemisphere. As Republicans, we believe that the Free Trade Area of the Americas is the best route to achieving that goal." page 26
Republicans applaud the renewal of the executive-Congressional partnership on
trade matters under Republican leadership. After a gap of eight years, the Administration
reestablished majority support in the Congress for free and fair trade by passing Trade
Promotion Authority and the other market-opening measures for developing countries in
the Trade Act of 2002.
We commend the strong record of President Bush and the Republican Congress in
using their authority to promote economic growth and economic freedom beyond
America’s shores, especially through free trade initiatives. We support the
Administration’s comprehensive strategy to promote free trade, exemplified by the
launch of the Doha negotiation of the World Trade Organization (WTO), regional and
sub-regional initiatives such as the Central American Free Trade Agreement, the Free
Trade Area of the Americas, and the Middle East Free Trade Area, extension of the
African Growth and Opportunity Act, and the conclusion of bilateral free trade
agreements with nations such as Australia, Morocco, Chile, and Singapore.

'Go it alone', arrogance,  anti United Nations, page 24
"Republicans are guided by the conviction that no nation can build a safer, better
world alone. In addition to NATO, the Organization of American States, and other long-standing
alliances, the United States is committed to lasting institutions like the United
Nations and the World Trade Organization. While international organizations can serve the cause of peace, Republicans believe they can never serve as a substitute for, or exercise a veto over, principled American leadership. The United Nations was not
designed to summon or lead armies in the field and, as a matter of U.S. sovereignty,
American troops must never serve under United Nations command."
Anti World Court, page 25

Anti Abortion, (supressing women's rights) page 25
Any effort to address global social problems must be firmly placed within a

support protecting the rights of families in international programs and oppose funding
organizations involved in abortion.  (Abstinence)

Americas Hemisphere (US Domination of Western Hemisphere), page 25
Republicans share President Bush’s vision of the Americas as a

advancing trade liberalization in the Americas in order to promote economic
development and democratic governance.
 
Using 'Illicit Drug Wars' and 'Fighting Terrorism' to suppress anti-capitalistic groups, page 26
"Our Party believes that the United States must continue to support the
democracies of South America with strong economic and security assistance. We
therefore endorse the increased support that the President and the Republican Congress
have provided to Colombia in the fight against narco-terrorists, in the eradication of coca
and poppy crops, and in the interdiction of illicit drugs and the extradition of criminals.
We also support the Bush Administration’s active strategy to help the Andean nations
adjust their economies, enforce their laws, defeat terrorist organizations, and cut off the
supply of illegal drugs." Similar to support of Right Wing Dictators against Left wing opposition groups (Kissinger, Pinochet era)   in the 60s,  70's and 80's in Latin America

We applaud the President’s leadership in establishing an unprecedented level of
engagement with Africa, exemplified by the high priority placed on dialogue between the President and his African counterparts and supported by historic initiatives such as the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA), the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, and the African Education Initiative. We further commend President Bush for visiting South Africa, Nigeria, Senegal, Botswana, and Uganda last year – the first
Republican President to do so.
 
Africa, conquest of oil, minerals, page 28
Republicans believe that South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, and Ethiopia are leaders
for regional engagement and require focused attention. We applaud the President and the Republican Congress for deepening American engagement with those nations.
Republicans also applaud increased support for African nations that have chosen the path of economic, political, and social reform and are therefore eligible for funding from the MCA: Senegal, Ghana, Benin, Cape Verde, Mali, Mozambique, Madagascar, and Lesotho. We believe that to be effective, development aid requires pro-growth policies and strong reforms in the nations that receive aid. We endorse the MCA’s direction of resources to countries with governments that rule justly, root out corruption, encourage entrepreneurship, and invest in the health and education of their people.  Republicans also applaud the strong record of President Bush and the Republican Congress in promoting development and economic growth in Africa as a means to eradicating poverty and encouraging the habits of freedom and enterprise. The African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) is bringing hundreds of thousands of jobs and investment opportunity to sub-Saharan Africa. Under President Bush’s leadership, Congress has extended AGOA beyond 2008 – an achievement that will help give businesses the confidence to make long-term investments in Africa.

The Bush Administration is working closely
with those nations to fight terror, and the Republican Congress has expanded efforts to

will not allow terrorists to threaten African peoples, or to use Africa as a base to threaten the world. We hail the continuing cooperation of Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Uganda, Tanzania, and other African nations in the War on Terror.

In concert with America’s allies South Korea and Japan, and supported by China and Russia, our nation is leading the international community to speak with one voice to demand the complete, verifiable, and irreversible dismantlement of North Korea’s nuclear programs.
Republicans support the Bush Administration’s efforts to protect the peace on the Korean peninsula. North Korea lies outside of the international system. Americans have shed their blood to stop North Korean aggression before and remain prepared to resist aggression today.

There are, however, other areas in which we have profound disagreements,
including human rights, China’s observance of its nonproliferation commitments, and

allow them to preclude cooperation where there is agreement.

contributions of Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Albania, and Macedonia. Through their
dedication to the cause of security and freedom in Iraq, these nations – together with the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark, Portugal, and Norway – are
demonstrating their commitment to the values shared by members of the transatlantic

It is important to reaffirm that the war we wage against terrorists is not a battle of

innocents violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith. We know that in this
struggle against terrorism free nations have strong allies, of every faith, including
millions of people in the Middle East who want to live in freedom. As Republicans, we
share the President’s conviction that if that region grows in democracy, prosperity, and hope, the terrorist movement will lose its sponsors, lose its recruits, and lose the festering grievances that keep terrorists in business.  
We affirm our support for President Bush’s Forward Strategy of Freedom in the
Middle East, as well as the Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiative adopted at

Republicans agree with President Bush that Israel’s plan to remove all settlements
from Gaza and several settlements from the West Bank is a courageous step toward peace in the face of continuing terrorist violence. This initiative can stimulate progress toward peace as laid out in the Road Map launched by President Bush. Road Map abandoned
We also share the President’s view that as part of a final peace settlement, it is unrealistic to expect that the outcome of final status negotiations will be a full and complete return to the armistice
lines of 1949. Study the deception of Arabs by Western Capitalists in the creation of Israel (1949).
Ownership
Ownership gives citizens a vital stake in their communities and their country. By
expanding ownership, we will help turn economic growth into lasting prosperity. As
Republicans, we trust people to make decisions about how to spend, save, and invest their own money. We want individuals to own and control their income. We want people to have a tangible asset that they can build and rely on, making their own choices and directing their own future. Ownership should not be the preserve of the wealthy or the privileged. As Republicans who believe in the power of ownership to create better lives, we want more people to own a home. We want more people to own and build small businesses. We want more people to own and control their health care. We want more people to own personal retirement accounts.

Fiscal Discipline and Government Reform
It is important to view the size of the deficit in relation to the size of the nation’s
economy. By that measure, today’s deficit, although unwelcome, is well within historical
ranges. A deficit that is 3.8 percent of GDP, as is now projected for this year, would be
smaller than the deficits in nine of the last 25 years, and far below the peak deficit figure of 6 percent of GDP reached in 1983. ........The U.S. deficit matches the average deficit within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, and is below the levels of France, Germany, and Japan. Deficit OK, blame it on 'terrorism'.
Government Reform, Paygo, page 46, 47
To ensure that the federal government respects the burdens on taxpayers and spends only as much as is necessary to accomplish our common goals, we support extending the pay-as-you-go requirement for mandatory spending only.
Government should be: citizen-centered, not bureaucracy-centered; results-oriented; and market-based, actively promoting rather than stifling innovation through competition.
In July 2002, President Bush signed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the most far-reaching
reform of American business practices since the 1940s. Under this new law,
CEOs and Chief Financial Officers are required to personally vouch for the truth and
fairness of their companies’ disclosures.  (very little reform of financial statements tricks).  Fed Martha Stewart to the wolves, a big signal for women to remain under their glass ceiling.
 
Limited Spending Growth, Line Item Veto, Sunset Commission, page 47
We support a cap on discretionary spending that will limit the growth of overall spending while ensuring that priorities such as our nation’s security will continue to be met.
(Wealth preservation)
Government should be: citizen-centered, not bureaucracy-centered; results-oriented; and market-based, actively promoting rather than stifling innovation through competition.
Corporate Accountability, page 48
In July 2002, President Bush signed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the most far-reaching
reform of American business practices since the 1940s. Under this new law,
CEOs and Chief Financial Officers are required to personally vouch for the truth and
fairness of their companies’ disclosures. ...Corporate Fraud Task Force to
investigate and prosecute financial crimes; to recover the proceeds of those crimes; and to hold corporate criminals to account. (Investigate SEC budget cuts other than enforcement budget)
 
Enforcing Trade Agreements and Opening New Markets, page 49
An additional 6 million jobs are made possible by companies based in foreign countries investing here in the United States. Consumers have benefited – Check alleged bribery and intimidation of countries to force them to agree to 'war on terrorism' support.
In 2000 we resolved to renew Trade Promotion Authority so the President could
more easily negotiate trade agreements. In 2002 President Bush and Republicans in
Congress did exactly that. (No mention of labor or environmental issues)
The Administration has also made significant progress in negotiating multi-lateral
trade agreements, having just last month revived World Trade Organization (WTO)
negotiations for the final phase of the Doha round. (Corporate power over sovereign
governments)
Reforming the Litigation System (Tort Reform), page 50
America’s litigation system is broken. Junk and frivolous lawsuits are driving up
the cost of doing business in America by forcing companies to pay excessive legal
expenses to fight off or settle often baseless lawsuits................ (Trial lawyer spin)
Trial lawyers get rich from the misfortune of others. If small business is America’s economic engine, trial lawyers are the brakes: They cost hundreds of thousands of good jobs, drive honest employers out of business, deprive women of critical medical care – then skip out with fat wallets and nary a thought for the economic havoc and human misery they leave in their wake.
Transportation, page 51
Republicans strongly support a comprehensive transportation policy
agenda that enhances safety, reduces congestion, modernizes infrastructure, and promotes economic growth. (no mention of pollution issues)
Ensuring an Affordable, Reliable, More Independent Energy Supply, page 51
President Bush and Republicans in Congress recognize the need for a balanced energy policy that increases both energy production and conservation. (balance is code word = ignore environment, see state's lawsuits
on Bush energy policy)
President Bush released the National Energy Policy (NEP) report, a comprehensive plan to reduce America’s dependence on foreign sources of energy by increasing domestic energy production and supporting conservation and alternative and renewable energy.
 
Energy policy, page 51
President has already committed $2 billion over 10 years for clean coal research and development – which helps keep America’s coal industry strong and reduces the emissions associated with coal use. As part of that commitment, we support FutureGen, an international, public-private initiative to build the world’s first integrated sequestration and hydrogen research power plant that would burn coal more cleanly.
•The FreedomCar Partnership and Hydrogen Fuel Initiative include $1.7 billion over five years to begin building hydrogen cars and the infrastructure to support them.
• Using the most sophisticated technologies, we can explore and develop oil
resources here at home with minimal environmental impact. Our Party continues to
support energy development in the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
(ANWR), which, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, holds as much as 16 billion
barrels of oil – enough to replace oil imports from Saudi Arabia for nearly 20 years. The drilling footprint can be confined to just 2,000 acres (the entire refuge contains 19 million acres), about the size of Washington’s Dulles Airport, on ice roads that melt away in the summer, leaving little trace of human intervention. (Bush figures vigorously disputed) page 52
• Republicans Increasing supply, including the construction of a new natural gas pipeline from
Alaska to the lower 48, will bring needed relief to consumers and make America’s businesses more competitive in the global marketplace.
• We will work to unleash innovation so entrepreneurs can develop technologies for a
more advanced and robust transmission system that meets our growing energy demands.
• Republicans will continue to support renewable energy through extension of the
production tax credit for wind and biomass, as well as efforts to expand the use of
biodiesel and ethanol, which can reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil while
increasing revenues to farmers.
• President Bush supports construction of new nuclear power plants through the Nuclear Power
2010 initiative
 
 
Education. No Child Left Behind
The law is based on four fundamental pillars:
Ensuring stronger accountability for student achievement, for all children
• Encouraging education methods that work
• Providing flexibility and control to states and local communities
• Giving parents more information about the quality of their children’s schools and
offering them choices and resources for their children’s education  Results are now measured on the basis of student achievement rather than simply dollars spent. Students are benefiting from education reforms that set high academic
standards, encourage strong parental involvement, recognize the role of excellent
teachers, foster safe and orderly classrooms, and establish a commitment to teaching the basics of reading and math.  Our next mission is to take the reforms that we know are working in elementary schools and apply them up and down the education ladder – starting in early childhood education, so that children enter school ready to learn, and finishing in high school........page 54
 
Local Control
We recognize that under the American Constitutional system, education is a state,
local, and family responsibility, not a federal obligation. Since over 90 percent of public school funding is state and local, not federal, it is obvious that state and local
governments must assume most of the responsibility...........
 
Historic Levels of Funding
President Bush and Congressional Republicans have provided the largest increase in
federal education funding in history
 
High Standards and Accountability
The President and Republicans in Congress recognize that states and local
communities are most directly responsible for the quality of education in their schools.
That is why the No Child Left Behind Act stipulates that the states, not the federal
government, develop an accountability plan that will work best for them.
Reading, page 55
Reading First initiative brings scientifically based reading instruction, including phonics,
to children in the early grades.
 
Options for Parents, page 56
The Republican Party strongly supports school choice, because choice creates
competition and competition puts the focus on quality. President Bush, Republican
governors, and members of Congress have worked to expand parental choice and
encourage competition by providing parents with information on their child’s school,
increasing the number of charter schools, and expanding education savings accounts for use from kindergarten through college.
Under NCLB, states and school districts publish report cards showing how well
students are achieving.................Parents of children in schools identified as needing
improvement can choose another public school or get tutoring or other help for their child.  .............President’s call to provide funding for new and existing charter schools.............. We believe that competition between schools is an effective option to improve the educational benefits for our children. The Republican Party supports the efforts of parents who choose faith-based and other nonpublic school options for their children.
 
High School Education
President Bush has proposed a number of initiatives to improve math
and science education, help striving readers, and raise standards for high schools.
 
Supporting Teachers
The No Child Left Behind Act set the goal of having a highly qualified teacher in every classroom by the 2005-2006 school year............
We must also work to reduce the barriers that are keeping qualified professionals
from entering the classroom by expanding alternative pathways to teacher certification – programs like Troops to Teachers.......... ........................maintain order and discipline in the classroom without the fear of litigation.  The law provides civil immunity in any state court and limits the financial liability of teachers, instructors, principals, administrators, and other education professionals for actions taken to maintain discipline, order, or control in the school or classroom. 
 
 Head Start and Early Childhood Education
We support the President’s “Good Start, Grow Smart” initiative, which
strengthens Head Start by increasing accountability.................Early Reading First ...............States should be able to coordinate preschool programs with Head Start programs in exchange for meeting certain accountability requirements.
 
Community College Programs
We support the President’s High-Growth Job Training Initiative, which has provided seed money to fund job training partnerships between community colleges and local high-growth industries.
 
Higher Education Funding
The President has requested record levels of Pell Grant funding. These grants will
help an estimated 5.3 million low-income students pay for higher education – one million more students than when President Bush and Vice President Cheney came to office.  Under a new Enhanced Pell Grant proposal, low-income students who take a rigorous high school curriculum – the kind of curriculum that will best prepare them for success in college – will be eligible to receive an additional $1,000 per year.
We applaud President Bush for fulfilling his pledge to increase funding for HBCUs and HSIs by 30 percent since 2001.  The President’s Personal Reemployment Accounts would provide unemployed workers flexible support and incentives in finding a job. And President Bush and Congressional Republicans are also providing unprecedented assistance for workers adversely affected by foreign trade – including additional training, income support, and health care assistance.  With English as our nation’s common language............. English empowers. For newcomers, it is the fastest route to mainstream American life,...............Furthermore, fluency in English should be the goal of bilingual education............ We advocate foreign language training.......
 
Protecting the Rights of Workers, page 57  (no mention anywhere about equal pay for women, minimum wage increases,....????)
We affirm the time-honored right of individuals to voluntarily participate in labor
organizations and to bargain collectively. We also believe that no American should be
coerced into an association they do not wish to join. And no one should be kept out of
a job for which they are qualified simply because they choose to remain independent of
labor unions. We therefore support the right of states to enact Right-to-Work laws.
President and Republican Congress have supported efforts to improve workplace safety without burdening businesses with costly and unnecessary regulations.
1.3 million additional workers now have guaranteed overtime protections.................For the first time ever, the regulations explicitly guarantee overtime protection to blue collar workers, police, firefighters, EMTs, factory workers, construction workers, and licensed practical nurses, among others.  With clearly defined overtime rules that recognize the realities of the modern workforce, employees and employers will have a greater understanding of their rights and responsibilities.
Republicans have enhanced financial disclosure requirements for political campaigns,
corporations, and pension funds in order to bring about more transparency and
accountability in the political system. And the Bush Administration improved union
financial disclosure forms to offer union members more information about how their dues money is spent. We encourage management and unions to find common ground thereby ensuring economic viability for both.
Men and women who retire after decades spent in the workforce are entitled to the
pensions they and their employers have contributed............As part of
the 2001 economic growth and tax relief bill, workers’ pension payments are now
calculated on the basis of their best three years of earnings rather than their last three.
...............In addition, criminal prosecutions against employers and plan trustees who abuse pension and health plans have increased by more than 50 percent since 2001. 
 
True Solutions for Affordable, High-Quality Health Care, page 59
............We must attack the root causes of high health care costs...............
by: aiding small businesses in offering health care to their employees; empowering the
self-employed through access to affordable coverage; putting patients and doctors in
charge of medical decisions; reducing junk lawsuits and limiting punitive damage awards that raise the cost of health care; and seizing the cost-saving and quality-enhancing potential of emerging health technologies. It is also important that we reaffirm our Party’s firm rejection of any measure aimed at making health care a government-run enterprise.
 
Association Health Plans (AHPs)
We support legislation to enable small employers to pool together to offer health
insurance options to their employees. ......... providing health care coverage for
America’s uninsured, 60 percent of whom are estimated to work for or be dependent on
someone who works for a small business.  Medical Liability Reform, page 60
The medical liability system is harming our medical delivery system. .......most dangerous result of this is the declining availability of emergency trauma care and women’s health services. ... costs are so prohibitive that many obstetrics/gynecology practices are scaling back services or ..... . Junk lawsuits add at least $60 billion to health care......................costs in America because doctors are forced to practice defensive medicine, ordering extensive, unnecessary, and expensive tests and procedures to keep trial lawyers at bay.  Shamefully driven by the.........powerful trial lawyer lobby, Democrat Senators have repeatedly thwarted the efforts of the Republican majority to deliver meaningful medical liability reform.  ............High costs, medical errors, administrative inefficiencies, and poor coordination are all closely connected to our failure to use health information technology as an integral part of medical care.
.........Republicans support President Bush’s goal of ensuring that most Americans have
electronic health records within the next 10 years...........These electronic health
records will be designed to share information among and between health care providers only when authorized by a patient.
There is growing concern that employers and insurance companies will use genetic information to discriminate by denying jobs or insurance coverage to individuals who have predictive genetic markers for certain diseases.................. We support efforts to enact genetic discrimination legislation that is fair, reasonable, and consistent with existing laws to prevent discrimination.
In addition, we must take action to allow doctors and hospitals to review best
practices without fear of litigation.................good-faith efforts to improve quality and safety are targets for lawsuits based on new information that is made public in the review process.
 
Investing in Science, Technology, and Telecommunications
Republicans recognize that the role of government in the 21st century economy is
to foster an environment in which innovation can flourish. ...........we recognize the magnitude and pace of change require vigilance by government to make the most of the
opportunities, mitigate the possible downsides of rapid technological advancement, and protect the technology industry from modern day pirates at home and abroad – both those who violate copyrights and those who loot by litigation.
Manufacturing,  page 61
...................The continued primacy of U.S. manufacturing is due in large part to
the Administration’s manufacturing initiative, which represents the first time in modern
history that an Administration has made U.S. manufacturing a top priority. We support
the Administration’s efforts in this regard as a recognition of the critical role of
manufacturing to job creation, national security, and the economy.
Research and Development
America’s economy is undergoing a fundamental transition from one based
primarily on manufacturing to one based on innovation, services, and ideas. Two-thirds of America’s economic growth in the 1990s resulted from the introduction of new technology and 60 percent of the new jobs of the 21st century require post-secondary education, yet only one-third of America’s workforce has achieved that level.  The President has doubled the budget for the National Institutes of Health and increased the  National Science Foundation budget by 30 percent. 
President Bush and the Republican Party also support making the R&D tax credit permanent.
Congress and signed by President Bush, increased funding for nanotechnology research.  In addition, the President has dedicated $1.7 billion over five years to develop hydrogen  fuel cells and related next-generation energy technologies.
 
Telecommunications, page 62
Broadband .................and offer life-enhancing applications, such as
distance learning, remote medical diagnostics, and the ability to work from home more
effectively.................Republicans have implemented a wide range of policies to create economic incentives, remove regulatory barriers, and promote new technologies.........The President has signed
into law a two-year extension of the Internet Access Tax moratorium.........and make it permanent.  Republicans are working to reduce burdensome regulations that discourage broadband investment.  Wi-Fi and Wi-Max.......Administration has nearly doubled the amount of spectrum available............ Broadband adoption has grown 300 percent from December 2000 to December 2003 – from 7 million to 28 million lines.
 

STRENGTHENING OUR COMMUNITIES, page 63

.........Bush: "Citizens who hear the call of duty, who stand up for their beliefs, who care for their families,
who control their lives, and who treat their neighbors with respect and compassion.”
.................To ensure that all Americans have an opportunity to build better lives, we must provide the framework in which communities can flourish. That requires access to affordable and accessible health care, protection of America’s.........the maintenance of public safety and prosecution of people who violate the peace of communities, guaranteed rights and equal opportunities for all members of society Promoting Affordable, Accessible Health Care
......... We appreciate the fact that market-based health care has given America the most advanced medical system in the world. Proposals ..........such as Health Savings Accounts and Association Health Plans, provide economic benefits while also making health care more consumer-driven and increasing
access to high-quality, affordable health care. We reject any notion of government-run universal health care.........applaud .... reform the broken medical liability system that is raising health care costs and limiting patients’ access to doctors – doctors who are being driven out of their practices by excessive medical liability costs.
 
Strengthening Medicare
In 2003, the Congress passed and President Bush ........ adds a prescription drug benefit to Medicare. .....in 2006. Until that time, beneficiaries have access to immediate and significant savings on prescription drugs through Medicare-approved prescription drug discount cards. Under the new drug benefit, seniors who like the coverage they have today can keep it. The new law will encourage employers to continue their retiree health benefits by
offering them subsidies for their current plans and giving them the option to supplement the new Medicare drug benefit in the same way they supplement current Medicare doctor and hospital benefits. 
 
The Medicare Prescription Drug and Modernization Act improves many facets of the Medicare program. ..........and .......“Welcome to Medicare” physical, the program will contain new services and screenings to help detect and prevent heart disease, diabetes, and other major illnesses. .......
We also applaud the addition of income relation for the Medicare Part B premium.........
 
Community Health Centers, page 64
Community health centers are locally-controlled, private providers of
primary and preventive care services in the most underserved communities in the
country.........through the federal grant program.............provide access to doctors and nurses regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. One in four
children from low-income families receives health care at community health centers.
 
Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)
Waivers and state plan amendments approved by the Department of Health and Human Services have expanded eligibility
..........fostering the creation of innovative approaches to health care access and delivery by the states.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Health Insurance Tax Relief, page 65
We applaud the President’s commitment to increasing health coverage for all
Americans. He proposed a refundable tax credit that will make health insurance moreaffordable to millions of Americans who do not have employer-provided insurance or public insurance. The Treasury Department estimates the tax credit will extend insurance to between four and five million Americans.
The Trade Promotion Authority bill, supported by the Republican Congress and
signed by President Bush, provides a tax credit to help workers obtain health insurance coverage if they have lost their jobs due to international trade.
 
Women’s Health page 65
Women have unique health care needs. They are underrepresented.............The enormous increases in the budget of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) brought about by the Republican Congress and President Bush are making possible groundbreaking clinical trials and new research into diseases and health issues that disproportionately affect women.
Republicans are dedicated to pursuing women’s health care initiatives that include access to state-of-the-art medical advances and technology; equality for women in the delivery of health care services;
Disparities in health and health care based upon race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, or geography are unacceptable.
Historically, African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, American Indians, and Alaska Natives have experienced
poorer health outcomes and received lower-quality care than the majority of Americans.
 
Eliminating Health Care Disparities, page 66
Disparities in health and health care based upon race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, or geography are unacceptable.
....(stats).................................Republicans are committed to addressing these health and health care disparities.........improve communication, collaboration, and understanding between patients and doctors. ............ We are funding research to find cures and treatments for illnesses that disproportionately affect minority populations, 
 
Investing in Cutting Edge Medical Research, page 66
America is the world’s leader in developing the medical and pharmaceutical
breakthroughs that have revolutionized health care. ......strongly support .......... biomedical research.
.....double funding for the National Institutes of Health...............committed to placing a high priority on continued world leadership in research,
while maintaining accountability for the use of resources and a responsibility to uphold the highest ethical standards.
..........Republicans ..... support, important scientific....research without undermining the fundamental ethical principles
..........stronger emphasis on adult stem cell and cord blood stem cell research,
We strongly support the President’s policy that prevents taxpayer dollars from being used to encourage the future destruction of human embryos......... call for a comprehensive ban on human cloning.............and on the creation of human embryos solely for experimentation.............We do not end some lives for the medical benefit of others.”
 
Long-Term Care Insurance, page 67
There is a growing need for long-term care...........We encourage, ........ regulatory flexibility and sensitivity to individual needs in nursing homes and related facilities. . We support ....... and reward....individual responsibility and compassion by creating an above-the-line tax deduction for
premiums of long-term care insurance and allowing an additional personal tax exemption for taking care of an elderly parent at home.
Honoring America’s Veterans, page 68
..............honor our commitment to the 25 million veterans..........President Bush and Congress have increased funding for veterans services, including substantial increases in Veterans’ Administration (VA) health care funding.
President Bush has twice signed legislation effectively providing “concurrent receipt” of both military retiree pay and VA disability compensation for combat-injured and highly-disabled veterans,...............President Bush has fulfilled his promise to cut the disability claims backlog.............
We, as well as they, deplore the deliberate desecration of our flag and state that its deliberate desecration is not “free speech,” but rather an assault against both our proud history and our greatest hopes. We therefore support a Constitutional amendment ..............to safeguard Old Glory.
 
Respecting and Protecting the Environment, page 68
Republicans know that economic prosperity is essential to environmental progress. ...........Congressional Republicans to reform and innovation, air pollution has been reduced, water quality has improved, wetlands have been restored, and more than a thousand brownfields sites are being revitalized.............states ....should be given flexibility and authority to address many environmental concerns.
Finally, we link the security of private property to our environmental agenda ....land, work the land, and own the land also love the
land and protect it. President Bush and the Republican Congress will safeguard private property rights by enforcing the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment and by providing just compensation whenever private property is needed to achieve a compelling public purpose.
 
Clear Skies, page 68
We support ..... Clear Skies proposal, ...... through a proven cap-and-trade system, will reduce by 70 percent emissions of sulfur dioxide,nitrogen oxides, and mercury. The market-based policies in Clear Skies, along with a 90 percent cut in pollution from diesel vehicles, will help ......to protect public health. ...... provides regulatory certainty, enabling power plants to install state-of-the-art pollution control technologies.
 
Revitalizing Urban Communities
....... signed legislation to clean up more of the abandoned and polluted industrial sites known as brownfields.. By prioritizing cleanup of brownfields, we are encouraging growth on existing sites and thus preserving greenfields and undeveloped land. We are also opening usable land for small businesses and residents in hundreds of communities......
 
National Parks
.....has been fulfilling his campaign promise to address the $4.9 billion maintenance backlog plaguing the National Park system. .......and will move forward with common-sense management reforms .....
 
Land Conservation and Stewardship
Our air, land, and water have all become cleaner in the last four years – ......... The 2002 Farm Bill provided unprecedented
levels of funding to enhance conservation efforts by farmers and ranchers........to pass the Healthy Forests Restoration Act. This law, based on the President’s Healthy Forests Initiative
Protecting America’s Water Resources
...... is working ..... to fulfill his new national goal to increase wetland acres and
quality by restoring, improving, and protecting at least three million wetland acres over the next five years........including implementing a sensible plan to address coastal erosion in the Gulf Coast region.
Chronic water shortages in the West are one of the greatest environmental challenges....... .. efforts..........to expand the use...of proven tools like market-based voluntary transfers through water banks and other
water-marketing tools. 
We also endorse ...... the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan. Our Party reaffirms the traditional primacy of states over water allocation. We steadfastly oppose diverting water away from the Great Lakes region.
 
Protecting Oceans, page 70
Republicans are committed to developing an integrated, comprehensive national oceans policy. The President and Congress have supported the work of the U.S. Oceans Commission.....
Global Climate Change, page 70
Republicans are committed to ..........relying on markets and new technologies to improve energy efficiency. These efforts will help reduce emissions over time while allowing the economy to grow. ..... strongly oppose the Kyoto Protocol and similar mandatory carbon emissions controls that harm economic growth and destroy American jobs.  
 
Modernizing the Endangered Species Act
The Endangered Species Act (ESA) ....... Our Party remains committed to the goal of protecting species ...., successes under ESA have been limited due to .....ever-growing barrage of litigation. Focus.......results-based cooperative conservation programs and voluntary agreements that encourage private stewardship. ......, ESA should require peer-reviewed science,....expansion of voluntary agreements with private property owners while ensuring ...... private property rights.
 
Agriculture and Rural America,  Page 71
American farm and ranch families embody some of the best values of our nation: President..... signed the 2002 Farm Bill, .......continues to pursue and enforce international trade agreements that affect farmers and ranchers. Republican policies are working, such as the recently revitalized WTO Doha round negotiations that will create new opportunities for U.S. farmers and ranchers by cutting foreign tariffs, expanding quotas for American products, and eliminating agricultural export subsidies.........
There is much more to rural America than agriculture, ranching, and forestry. The kind of economic development that generates family-sustaining jobs is critical to small towns and rural communities.
 
Revitalizing America’s Cities, page 71
...........New York’s turnaround is a testament to the great power of turning Republican ideals into policies and solutions. By focusing on economic growth and opportunity, business development, crime control, and the revitalization of urban eyesores, .......Lower taxes, ......., are stimulating development...... New homeownership opportunities are giving residents a stake in urban neighborhoods. ....... Faith-Based Initiative is extending the work of religious and charitable groups .............opportunity to inner cities. .........unprecedented homeland security funding
The District of Columbia
....... The city’s downhill slide was stopped in the 1990s, ......The D.C. homebuyer’s tax credit helped to revitalize marginal neighborhoods and should be reinstated. A landmark tuition assistance act ......District elementary and high school students are now benefiting from the $14 million D.C. School Choice initiative – the first federally-funded school choice demonstration program. ......., we support yielding more budgetary and legal autonomy to local elected officials................homeland security.  Combating Chronic Homelessness
chronic homelessness ....comprise roughly ten percent of the homeless population, ....... By taking on the toughest cases........
 
Protecting Our Rights, Fighting Criminals, and Supporting Victims, page 72
......strongly support an individual right to own guns,.... Second Amendment..........make more public lands available to hunters, to increase access to hunting clinics and safety programs for children and adults, ...........signed the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act, which allows ... carry concealed guns in public while off-duty. We support ..... instant background check system for gun purchases and to ensure that records of lawful transactions are destroyed in a timely manner. ..... stop frivolous lawsuits against firearms manufacturers, which is a transparent attempt to deprive citizens of their Second Amendment rights. We oppose federal licensing of law-abiding
gun owners and national gun registration as a violation of the Second Amendment and an invasion of privacy of honest citizens.
...... enforce existing laws and hand down tough penalties against anyone who commits a crime with a gun. ..... support Project Safe Neighborhoods, ......support a federal Constitutional amendment for victims of violent crime ...... We support ....death penalty in capital murder cases. ........protect pregnant women from violent crime by passing Laci and Conner’s law, ......violence against a pregnant woman kills or injures her unborn child, there are two victims and two offenses that should be punished.
