"..Women’s vote is bad for the country!" Tea Party Leader Janis Lane

Re-Blog from Addictinginfo Dot Org

This Tea Party Woman Says Women Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Vote

AUTHOR MARCH 3, 2014 6:58 PM
Janis Lane, female head of MS Tea Party, doesn't want women to vote.

Mississippi Tea Party leader Janis Lane thinks the women’s vote is bad for the country. And yes, Janis Lane is a woman herself, who benefits from the women’s vote. After being asked whether she thought there were too many male politicians deciding women’s issues back in 2012, she said:

“I’m really going to set you back here. Probably the biggest turn we ever made was when the women got the right to vote. Our country might have been better off if it was still just men voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful women. They are diabolical in how than can skewer a person. I do not see that in men. The whole time I worked, I’d much rather have a male boss than a female boss. Double-minded, you never can trust them.
Because women have the right to vote, I am active, because I want to make sure there is some sanity for women in the political world. It is up to the Christian rednecks and patriots to stand up for our country. Everyone has the right to vote now that’s 18 or over (who is) a legal citizen, and every person that’s 18 and over and a legal citizen should be active in local politics so they can make a change locally, make a change on the state level and make a change in Washington, D.C.”

So, first Janis Lane says women should never have gotten the right to vote. Then she says that she’s active in politics because of the women’s vote. What if we went back to the 19th century on that? She wouldn’t be able to have nearly as much influence politically. She could fight for issues, sure, but she couldn’t see them through at the polls. One has to wonder what she would do if women really did lose the right to vote.

Janis Lane isn’t the only woman to speak out against women.

Janis Lane is not the only woman to voice issues with the women’s vote. Back in 2007, Ann Coulter said that Democrats would never win an election again if women couldn’t vote. She also thought that the Democrats ought to hang their heads in shame for having so much trouble getting men to vote for them.

She has since revised that, saying that not only is the women’s vote bad, but also that liberal women should not be allowed to hold office. Liberal women, according to Coulter, get hysterical, start to cry, and are generally just too fragile to have a discussion with. This is about the same as what Janis Lane thinks.

So what is the GOP’s official position on the women’s vote?

According to Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, the GOP is proud to have been a moving force in securing the women’s vote. The GOP, he says, will continue “to uphold the principle of equal opportunity for all that has guided us from the very beginning. And as we celebrate the women of our party and country this month, we continue our fight for equal opportunity.”

Janis Lane, however, likely does not agree. She and other so-called “true” Tea Partiers believe there’s just as much of a problem with the GOP as there is with the Democrats. The GOP is not about equality of any sort, and the Tea Party even less so. Equality, for the Tea Party, is a privilege for white men to enjoy. Otherwise Janis Lane (and others) would never think the country would be better off if women couldn’t vote.

With the 2014 elections now less than a year away, it’s time for women to wise up. The Tea Party does not have women’s best interests at heart, as Janis Lane proved a year and a half ago.

Rience Priebus As Inside Operator!

Re-Blog from a friend of 

the TPI and guest writer..... 



Oh no, this is terrible news

The fact that Reince Priebus was using his position of power to pick favorites and stab Scott Walkers opponent in the back with inside information could be enough to force Priebus to resign as RNC Chairman. And that would be a serious blow to us progressive/liberal/Democrats because no one with the exception of Sarah Palin has won more voters and more elections for us.

"Neumann was defeated 59% to 39% in the September 14, 2010 primary by opponent Scott Walker. Walker was ultimately elected Governor in the general election."

It would be interesting to see if Mr Neumann would be willing to discuss any and all conversations he had with the Koch brothers regarding any "deals or willingness to play ball with them." Or would he like to speculate how the information was leaked out? Hacking? A mole in his office? Does he have second thoughts about the Republican Party? How about his ideas of a free and democratic society knowing what he knows now?

The Raw Story
Email shows RNC chair Reince Priebus leaked info to Scott Walker about primary opponent (via Raw Story )
Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus gave Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) inside information leading up to his 2010 election, Isthmus reported Wednesday night. Among the thousands of emails recovered as part of a recently-concluded investigation…

Reince Priebus Joins Rand Paul in a "No-Win" Place

Re-Blog from The DailyBanter...

...And reality show politlics will not resuce an empty platform!

What you are about to read is the exact dynamic that takes place when a political party and movement have no substance, no viable platform issues, and no common sense.  

Rand Pual and his wife have embarked on a path that has ensnared many in the GOP.  The Charman of the RNC, Priebus, has joined the "ooze. A few weeks back while watching Chris Matthews, MSNBC Hardball, the former Chair of the RNC told Chris and co-guest Joy-Ann Reid that Paul's message resonates. RESONATES?  Maybe, among low informaion and sycophant followers, but the great popualtion may have left Bill Clinton's indiscretions far in the past.

Before I turn this screed over the crafty piece from Bob Cesca, allow one or two more quick points.  Clinton's indiscretions are duly noted, archived in US History and not relevant to issues related to Hillary Clinton.   Do the Paul's, Priebus and others fail to see that part of the love of Hillary Clinton is her handling of the indiscretion of a husband we were warned about well before he took office?  She handle her relationship as true matriarch of a family, and made the decision to work within the confines of her family to move forward.  She literally said on a sofa sitting next to Bill, "...I love the guy."  She said so while most of us seethed with anger. An admirable act of love and family devotion from an admirable person. How will women feel about GOP 'men" dragging that chapter in US History out of a Karl Rovian-like bag of dirty tricks?

Has either Paul or Priebus thought about the failings of Monica Lewinsky? Ms. Lewinsky, also knew of Bill Clinton's "hot spots" (excuse the pun) and may have leveraged a weakness for exercise of her self-serving "concubinism."  Thus, she may have been as flawed a personality and psyche as was Bill Clinton at the time. All said, the strategy against  the Clintons touches into an area that may induce more praise, respect and admiration for Hillary Clinton. 

One last point. Do you think for one second if the US economy was in the tank, Paul and his wife would get any place with the strategy? How about people realizing that the GOP (via Paul and Priebus) are embarking on a reality show issue while we have 1.7 million people suffering through no income as Paul's filibustered (via the GOP) Senate voted against a three month extension?  Should I mention less 'noise" about the ACA as people are singing up?  Do you think for one second .......?

Alas, the Clintons and Democrats will not allow low-hanging GOP strategy to pull them on to the Jerry Springer Show!  US politics deserves better; we have too much to lose.

As promised, Bob Cesca.....

RNC Chairman Confirms Party Will Hang Itself With Lewinsky Scandal. Again.

The Republican party is determined to hang themselves with this nonsense.
Over the past several weeks Senator Rand Paul and Morning Joke host Joe Scarborough have floated the idea that the party should attack Hillary for the actions of her husband former President Bill Clinton. Up until today that was simply a case of Rand Paul being Rand Paul and Morning Joe being the hack that he is but, during an interview with MSNBC, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said that everything old is new again.
“I think everything’s on the table,” Priebus told Andrea Mitchell.
“I don’t see how someone just gets a free pass on anything. I mean, especially in today’s politics. So, I think we’re going to have a truckload of opposition research on Hillary Clinton and somethings may be old and somethings might be new. But I think everything is at stake when you’re talking about the leader of the free world and who we’re going to give the keys to run the United States of America.”
I don’t know who’s been advising the party that this is a good idea, but as a Democrat I think that person deserves a raise.

The RNC Chair Is The GOP Personified

Reince Priebus, RNC Chair, is ignominious in his message, his talking-points, his sad attempts to share reference examples, and generally out of his element when not on Fox News.

Actually, once Priebus steps outside the realm of his paradigm(ed) party and outside the purview of people who are socially inclined to accept his rhetoric, he is effectively lost.

We will end this piece out of respect for a Sunday Morning and to avoid too early traipsing in disparaging remarks. Priebus certainly lends himself to a complete lexicon of disparaging remarks. Let's save them for another time.

Etch a Sketch Anyone?

Re-blogged from Mario Piperni Dot Com

Revisiting Romney’s Etch a Sketch With Reince Priebus

Romney Etch A Sketch Moment   :
You shake an Etch-a-Sketch, Reince, not “tilt” it.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Sunday brushed off criticism of the organization’s debate ultimatum from a former senior advisor to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.
“This Week” host George Stephanopoulos asked Priebus to respond to Eric Fehrnstrom’s tweet, which said it was “bad optics” for the party and a “loser’s game” to ban CNN and NBC from partnering with the RNC for 2016 presidential debates over pending film projects about Hillary Clinton. 
“Well, I don’t know if his Etch a Sketch is on tilt, George,” Priebus said. “I’m not really taking advice from Eric Fehrnstrom right now.” 
The remark referenced Fehrnstrom’s memorable comment on the 2012 campaign trail that seemed to imply Romney would change his position on key issues as need be to get elected. 
“Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign,” Fehrnstrom said. “Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch-A-Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.” 
Yeah, sure…whatever and who cares. The more important question here is: did the RNC fire Michael Steele for a bozo named Reince Priebus and think they got themselves a better operation? If so, they’re mistaken. I was never a fan of Steele and some of the idiotic stuff he’d say but you did get the impression that Steele was a decent guy who never really believed most of what he said. He was the GOP’s mouthpiece and he said what he had to say in his role as RNC chair. 
Reince Priebus, on the other hand, is an entirely different animal. There is something distinctly slimy about the man that takes in his name, his appearance and the very words he uses to sell the GOP’s latest sack of lies and deception. Priebus’ post election speech about the GOP’s need to reach out to women and minorities was promising but ended up amounting to zilch once the Tea Party growled its disapproval. 
Priebus can mock Fehrnstrom and his Etch-a-Sketch moment all he wants but his refusal to air primary debates on CNN and NBC will harm no one but a political party that desperately needs the votes of women, young people and minorities if it’s to ever have a chance of winning back the White House. 
And for what it’s worth, if you remove all of the vowels from Reince Priebus’ name, you’re left with: RNC PR BS

A Dying GOP Deploys The "Big Fix"

A dying political party.....

You people who support the GOP should watch your political leaders very carefully.  Conservative America is in a precarious position: its politics (ideology, strategy and leadership), its governance, and  its values and principles are showing signs early stages of oligarchy that can only to destruction of the nation.

America's political landscape and accompanying social mores are hovering just left of center. The GOP lost big this past November. The nations demographics are changing in directions contrary to the GOP base. The party over the past two years has exposed itself in most inappropriate ways......

From voter suppression strategies through outright attempts to violate voting laws by members of the GOP, party officials and various operatives, the party work to win the General elections in the most underhanded of acts.  The party has a solid lock on the US south (a majority of southern voters) and the majority of voters in sparsely populated states.  They have no worries about winning those states.   States that are up for grabs (so called swing states) have become fertile ground for deploying sickening southern strategy and "fear the minority" politics.  The party campaigns in the lowest denominators of shameful.  Of equal shame and reprehension; forty-seven percent the nation's voters flocked to voting booths in support of such neo-con practices. 

All strategy aside, the GOP lost the General Elections handily.  President Obama won 51 percent of the vote with a winning margin of  5 million voters . General Election presidential results . President Obama won the Electoral Vote by a landslide: 332 to 206 for Obama).  Despite the millions spent by uber wealthy supporters and 24/7 barrages of Right-wing media dogma and demagoguery, Mitt Romney and the GOP lost in November and even gained seats in both Houses of Congress.   

It must have been clearly obvious the GOP needed new strategy. Strategy that in plain language smacks of a small group of people working to takeover the government of a nation. A small group that so obviously works as political "offensive linemen" for the wealthy, Republicans no longer actually deny their 'circled wagons' to protect the wealthy.

Changing demographics and the posted election exit poll results poses a serious problem for GOP governance.  What do humans and animals do when cornered?  They resort to desperate measures to secure space, breathing room, or to open the closing playing field.  Under the leadership of the most underhanded and shifty RNC Chair, the GOP has come-up with strategy that should garner attention. Priebus and his party are going after the Electoral Vote.

GOP Busted for Voter Fraud

If you are a progressive, you probably watched the Rachel Maddow Show Monday night   Apparently, the GOP has been caught red-handed 'cheating' via sophisticated voter registration strategies, potentail voting machine treachery, and flat-out manipulation behind the scenes.. I find it impossible to believe the sniveling Chairman of the RNC has no involvement in the surreptitious voter fraud.

The Maddow segment is  it long. however, if you want perspective on the underhandedness and level of unconstitutional acts the GOP is willing to expend, it is a must watch.

Al Sharpton's News Nation....

The Maddows Blog (w/Steve Benen)

The Republican National Committee ran into a little trouble last week when Strategic Allied Consulting, a controversial conservative firm hired by the RNC to register voters, was accused of systematically submitting fraudulent voter registration forms. The RNC, which was paying the firm millions despite a history of similar controversies, quickly ended the relationship.
But as the scope of the scandal grows, it appears the Republican National Committee has been left in a bind -- with five weeks until Election Day, the party has no Plan B, and has now given up on registering new voters.
The Republican National Committee ended efforts to sign up new voters before the deadline in key states for the presidential race because of questions raised over registration applications tied to the party.
Republican parties in Florida, Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia -- all states that both campaigns view as competitive -- fired Glen Allen, Virginia-based Strategic Allied Consulting, the company in charge of registrations, said Kirsten Kukowski, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee. The national committee also canceled its contract with the company, its only vendor signing up new voters, Kukowski said.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Reince Priebus RNC Chair

Is everything OK, Reince?

Since Micheal Steele was replaced as RNC Chair, I have been astonished at the person who replaced Steele. Now, let me say that Steel's injection into the RNC Chair position was based on the election of the nation's first African-American president.   So there is a name for such a role, but I will refrains from its use, as the GOP also saddle the nation with the "Frankenstein' Monster:  Sarah Palin. That is what the GOP is about. There is nothing, absolutely nothing below the surface in the GOP.  While Steele initially ran about playing some sort of, "I am a cool soul-brother act" replete with colloquialisms, stereotypes and references to wearing his cap backwards, Palin just ran about like a blind dumb bull. Both helped to lower the esteem of the dissolving GOP.  After Steele failed in his assignment. He failed to to capture attention from and stand-tall against President Obama, failed to provide  competent leadership to the RNC, and generally made a fool of himself in all of the precious, he fell out of favor. 

Well, I thought Steele and Palin were bad.  I should have learned years ago, never take a deep breathe thinking you have managed to weather a storm; often another storm follows. The next storm hit with election of Reince Priebus, RNC Chair post Michael Steele.  

Let me state a premise.  Reince Priebus is either not a smart person, or he is one who is so focused on obstructionism and advancing the GOP agenda, he comes across as somewhat childlike.  Allow me to offer an example.  

During a recent interview with A CNN host, Priebus completely ignores the interview questions and launches on his usual diatribes of talking points.  I am little amazed that Priebus so forcefully lashed out at the host. I wonder if it is because host is a woman. "I am just saying".

A midst the video segment:

Host:  (30 second mark)...can you just say that President Obama's economic plan has been a failure."  Take note of how Priebus opens his remarks. It is impossible to find another GOP/RNC executive who has such little management of his capacities to start an answer accordingly. It is almost crass.
