John Sigler steps down and the race is on for the new Delaware Republican Chair. Most have dropped out but two: An officially declared candidate, and one unofficial one.
At stake is the future of Delaware’s GOP.
Those two are Charlie Copeland and Jeff Cragg.. To most readers, this would be considered a battle between losers, sort of like a Sunday fall afternoon football game to determine which team will lose to get the first NFL draft pick in spring. But I would like to inform you, that is not true.
It is a battle between good and evil. At stake is the future of the Republican Party.
When one speaks of the future, one can look at one thing. Getting votes. For that is what the Republican Party is bad at. The other things, money, organization, fervor, dedicated partisans, blocs of ad time, connections to the “right” people, they have plenty of.
The thing they ardently lack, is people who will even want to vote for them.
The biggest deflection away from the Delaware GOP occurred between 2004 and 2008. During that time, one person, speaker of the Republican House, controlled the entire republican agenda. As you may have guessed, that is the present candidate Charlie Copeland.
The other candidate recently lost a statewide election to an incumbant governor. If anyone knows what it takes to get a good Republican candidate elected to a statewide office, it is him. He’s been there. He’s tried.
The odds are on that Copeland will probably take it for all the wrong reasons. One, he works on the principal that if you support Copeland he’ll support you. With him as the future chairman, every Republican will be watching their backs to swivel in the last second. to dodge the stick of the knife. One must remember all the past double crosses attached to the Copeland name. There were many times when promises went unfulfilled.
Some who think back, may remember better times when Copeland was the principle mover of the Republican caucus. They envision him again returning their party to glory. They remember the press releases, the interviews, the photo ops; they look to no longer having their party appear the loser that it is. They forget how it got that way.
It got that way because the Republican Party fell in love with itself. Better to masturbate than go out and get votes it thought. They talked of how great they were, and ignored the problems real people were having. They talked of doubling down, being resolutely determined, and smashing down all who stood in their way, when it was real genuine hurting people, who found themselves standing where the Republican Party wanted to go. Take more money from the middle class, get rid of more unions which are only there to make sure people were treated fairly, cut more services needed by everyday people so the rich could get richer.
Instead of results, Copeland gave us blame. First blame the Democrats, then as the election results went sour, blame Bill Lee, blame Tim Ross, blame everyone but the real culprit.
Now let’s look at Jeff Cragg. When no one wanted to run, Jeff said,… “If Republican Party goes into the “General” with a blank spot for governor, our party is finished. ” When Copeland said, “Who me? Run for Governor? And lose to Markell? Are you effin crazy?” Jeff did just that,. for the good of the party; it is still intact. Whereas Copeland made a decision based on personal ambition, Jeff took the opposite tack. Jeff came to the aid of his party suffering a stunning defeat, because it needed him.
Copeland ran the party in better times. But that party was shattered, broken in part because all the personal connections built up over lifetimes, were split, shunned, double-crossed, and poked fun of, leaving very few pieces standing; so few pieces still upright they couldn’t save Mike Castle…. Jeff put pieces together and ran.
The question before the Republican Party is this. Of the two who can get more people to vote Republican… A builder? Or a Tearer-Down?
Who makes the better preacher? The one who can convert more sinners into saints? Or which of these two has a better shot of success? A person responsible for the previous collapse, or a person experienced in building something out of nothing?..
We all have a gut and mine says the latter: the person who built something out of nothing. Not the rich son who squandered his Father’s wealth.
All the money in the world won’t help Delawarean Republicans one bit, if no one wants to cast their vote because of what your party stands for……
Republicans always hated the press. The press tells the truth and truth is the anathema to Republican politics.
So when the Democrats after the War on Terror was over. proposed to curtail some of the stringent powers which the Federal Government held over the press, the Republicans naturally refused. ”We can’t have that”, they screamed. ”National Security.” What they were truly concerned about was their own political security. A press that was not intimidated by them, could do their party harm…
The Democrats countered with this: … ‘but when it’s a Democratic President who is intimidating a Republican Press, you’ll come to your senses then”….
Lindsey Graham, the Republican icon from South Carolina, is proposing that we now pass the law he was previously against…. It protects journalists from being investigated…. For you see, now Fox news was investigated, in his mind that changes things.
Our press, for better or worse, is a big part of the people’s hold over their government. A press needs to be free to publish what it will, and let then public debate determine whether or not it has merit. For example. All three of these current scandals do not involve illegality. All three were accomplished completely within the law. It is because we have the press, we can know this.
At first one side publishes the accusations. This person is guilty their headlines scream, and to a point when only one side is allowed to offer up arguments, it sort of does look like that person is guilty… But then the other side dug up stuff too. What they found were only the current accusations, with nothing substantial to back them. Simple posturing, finger pointing, and nothing else. No crimes were committed. In fact, all the alleged activities were sanctioned by law. If one didn’t do what one was accused of, one could have gone to jail for probably breaking the existing law…..
It is just that now that Republicans aren’t the ones in power, they don’t like the actual existing law, Even though it was them, who passed and enforced it back when they held the White House and both branches of Congress, even over the democrat’s vocal opposition..
So, now that the Democratic prediction has come true, Republicans are coming on board.
And if it protects the press and allows them to print the news, America ultimately in the end, prospers. And that is a good thing….
So if you see a republican walking down the street, laugh hysterically at their stupidness, pettiness, and inability to think outside their box… Roll on the sidewalk clutching your sides, point at them the whole times… Get your friends to do the same…..
Then thank them, for finally coming to their senses, realizing Democrats were right all along, and jumping on the bandwagon of Democratic policy, to do their part and help make America a much better place….
It is a crime when individuals are found tamping with evidence. Tampering may include a manipulation or movement of the evidence during or after the crime. Individuals can in fact be charged with being an accessory after the fact, if they manipulated evidence in any way.
Did a crime occur in the Republican caucus surrounding Darrell Issa.
ABSOLUTELY. Evidence was tampered…..
CBS News reported that at least two of the Benghazi e-mails that were leaked by Republicans last Friday were altered.
One of the altered e-mails was from Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes. The other altered e-mail was from U.S. State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.
Here’s the Republican version of the Rhodes e-mail: We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation.
Here’s the White House version of the Rhodes e-mail: We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation.
Here’s the Republican version of the Nuland e-mail: The penultimate point is a paragraph talking about all the previous warnings provided by the Agency (CIA) about al-Qaeda’s presence and activities of al-Qaeda.
Here’s the White House version of the Nuland e-mail: The penultimate point could be abused by members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings.
Evidence was tampered to imply a crime. Under all state codes this can be either a misdemeanor or a felony. We need these investigated… The law was broken. Congressional Hearings are in place to get to the bottom of the truth. They are not intended to be kangeroo courts to make up evidence that doesn’t naturally exist….
The law was broken. Arrests need to be made… This is not about Democrats or Republicans… This is about the trust and truthfulness of the United States of America.
If Congress were run as were DC’s Schools? Darrell Issa would be thrown out of Congress…. From the DC school manual…….
Tier IV behaviors result in off-site Suspension.
(a) The following behaviors shall be considered Tier IV behaviors:
(1) Acts of vandalism, destruction of property, or graffiti (tagging);
(2) Documented theft of school or personal property without force;
(3) Interfering with school authorities or participating in a major
disruption of the school’s operation.
(4) Tampering with, changing, or altering an official record or
document of a school;
Here is the Texas’s definition of tampering. Darrell Issa would be in jail if this took place in Texas….
A person commits an offense if, knowing that an investigation or official proceeding is pending or in progress, he:
(1) alters, destroys, or conceals any record, document, or thing with intent to impair its verity, legibility, or availability as evidence in the investigation or official proceeding;
(2) makes, presents, or uses any record, document, or thing with knowledge of its falsity and with intent to affect the course or outcome of the investigation or official proceeding;
(3) knowing that an offense has been committed, alters, destroys, or conceals any record, document, or thing with intent to impair its verity, legibility, or availability as evidence in any subsequent investigation of or official proceeding related to the offense; or
(4) observes a human corpse under circumstances in which a reasonable person would believe that an offense had been committed, knows or reasonably should know that a law enforcement agency is not aware of the existence of or location of the corpse, and fails to report the existence of and location of the corpse to a law enforcement agency.
In Texas, this is a felony in the third degree.
The evidence brought forth a week ago that inflamed the nation, was a fabrication. “Directly it was an attempt to make, present and use a record, document, or thing with knowledge of its falsity and with intent to affect the course or outcome of the investigation or official proceeding….”
18 USC § 1001 – Statements or entries generally
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—
(1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact;
(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or
(3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry;
shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years.
In their quest to call it terrorism –and it is– the republicans just opened themselves up to a crime.
I demand an immediate arrest of Darrell Issa for breaking the law…. Full Censure by the House of Representative of this common criminal is called for immediately…..
That study caused the leading Republican Hispanic in charge of the Florida’s outreach to Spanish speaking American citizens, to switch parties. He is now a Democrat. And he was in charge of convincing Hispanics to vote Republican!!!…
What caused the shift? A Republican study that specifically was aimed at the redneck hillbillies inside the Republican Party, but wound up hitting mainstream. The undeniable truth is it this what the Republican Party really does think about what it calls behind closed doors, it’s dirty little problem….
“No one knows whether Hispanics will ever reach IQ parity with whites, but the prediction that new Hispanic immigrants will have low-IQ children and grandchildren is difficult to argue against.”
So says the Republican Party of the United States of America.
Proving once again… that this party is nothing but the harshest racists..(Just watch Rick Jensen try to defend it by saying “he” is not a racist.) Truth is… he isn’t. He’s actually a great guy.. But the party he supports (though he does not represent) is undeniably racist…
A fact so driven home that the single most important Republican in charge of Florida’s Hispanics, NOT ONLY FELT COMPELLED TO RESIGN… BUT FELT IT NECESSARY TO ACTUALLY SWITCH PARTIES PUBLICLY….
Is every Republican a racist? No. But every racist is a Republican and the Republican Party of the United States of America is beholden to do whatever those racists want! ABSOLUTELY!!!
Every Hispanic Republican out of self respect, NEEDS RIGHT NOW TO CHANGE THEIR PARTY.... There can be no such thing as a Hispanic Republican from now on. Just Spanish speaking Uncle Toms… who should appropriately hitherto be called…. La Malinches
OH SHUT UP YOU STUPID OLD FARTS!
Since the rampage at Connecticut, less than five months later — this list includes 137 accidental shootings, 57 of which were fatal. These children and teens were accidentally shot by themselves, by parents, siblings, relatives, friends, neighbors, and caregivers. In other words, these shootings were not by strangers. Many of the guns used in these shootings were obtained by family members for personal protection.
Isn’t that far more important? 137 accidental shootings because we can’t responsibly handle weapons of mass destruction?
137/ 57 fatal Guns in the US are the log in our eye. Meanwhile we try to take splinters out of the eyes of others!
And we’re wasting yet another day of Congress to rehash what the last 17 hearings on the same topic have dug up? One that killed just 4 Americans in a terrorist ambush, something of which we have no control over? And we want to get down to the bottom of who is to blame? But 137 actual shootings occur, and these same people drink champagne and eat caviar while whooping and rejoicing that background checks got defeated?
We have got to rid ourselves of these outdated farting Republicans, either one way or another….. Maybe give them some Beano. For heavens sake, let’s get our nation’s priorities in order.

There was a very strange pamphlet that showed up in Sussex County, sanctioned by the REPUBLICAN sheriff down there.. Here is the quote…
Fact: Sheriffs in Delaware are not law enforcement officers. They are paper pushers. Their only duty is to serve court papers such as divorce proceedings and the auction of houses… By law, they are not allowed to form “posse’s”
I can remember however, a long, long time ago, when rural people who didn’t agree with Federal guidelines that was being imposed upon them, would arm themselves, gather in the middle of the night under a certain tree, or a bend of the road, and ride out to perform their own particular brand of justice.
We called them the Klu Klux Klan…… Is Sheriff Christopher trying to revive them…..
Yep, the Paul Ryan budget was released today. As expected it is a budget designed to protect the top 1% from any bad thing that could possibly occur to them. As was poetically so well put by Romney during the past campaign…. ” ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…. The rest of us don’t matter….”
Today prominent theologians of all religions universally excommunicated the Republican Party of the United States of America from any pretension of anything corresponding to organized religion.
“They’re a cult, I tell you!!!”
Republicans in congress. God is watching you. And if you Fundamentalists would read your Bibles, you’d already know whose side He is on.
The rest of us… If you thought Republicans would come to their senses and start reinvesting in America, the joke is on you.
Nothing will ever change until America gets mad enough to rid ourselves of this pestilence forever…. You don’t have to vote for a Democrat. Most of you won’t… But you do… have to not vote for a Republican….
Unless you no longer consider yourself a moral individual, change your Registration…. TODAY!!!!!!!
