DOCUMENT LEAK: Virginia GOP Establishment’s "Loyalty Oath" Scheme to Suppress Insurgents Trump and Cruz

The Last Refuge blog (also known as The Conservative Treehouse) has done yeoman's work exposing the GOP establishment's plot to jam Jeb Bush down the collective throats of the electorate.

Despite Bush's single-digit poll numbers, the GOPe remains fixated on a Bush candidacy (and, by extension, a Hillary presidency, since Bush has zero chance of winning a general election).

Most recently, Virginia's old guard has proffered a laughably obvious ploy to deter independent, Tea Party, Reagan Democrat, and Constitutional Conservatives who have abandoned the Republican establishment from voting in the GOP primary.

LOSING THE PRIMARY TO WIN THE GENERAL? Why ¡Jeb’s failed campaign hasn’t called it quits

By Jen Kuznicki

It was a puzzling statement for sure when Jeb Bush said early on in his run for president that Republicans need to stop trying to win the argument, and that he would rather lose the primary in order to win the general.

Many, including me, asked just how it is possible to lose the primary but go on to win in the general, a race determined by who wins the Republican primary.

But now that Jeb has thoroughly botched the debates, and fallen far short of getting enough momentum before Iowa to be considered in contention for winning the primary, shouldn’t we ask whether he is simply following through with his stated goal?

MITCH McRUBIO: Florida Senator Won’t Use Congressional Power of the Purse to Stop the ISIS Invasion

By Julia Hahn

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) tells Sean Hannity that he’d “hate to use” Congress’ power of the purse to block Obama’s refugee resettlement program. He’d prefer to opt for Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)’s plan, which would allow the President to resettle 85,000 or more refugees this year from countries including Somalia, the Congo and Syria.

Hannity pressed Rubio on how Republicans could stop the importation of Syrian refugees into the United States.

"The country has reached its Lexington and Concord moment"

By Lawrence Sellin

It is now clear that the US Government, for the most part is unable and, in some cases, refuses to protect Americans from external and internal threats to our security, whether that be through unregulated immigration, an impotent ISIS policy or the disarming of law-abiding citizens.

Under the Obama Administration's leadership, elements of the radical left such as Black Lives Matter have joined forces with the Islamist-supporting groups the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and funded by Michael Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety,  George Soros' Center for American Progress and the Joyce Foundation, a group that funds gun control efforts.

While the Islamist groups want to render us defenseless against jihad in America, the political left wants to make us vulnerable to government tyranny.

QOTD: ""Let's be clear," [Hillary] Clinton lectured. "Muslims have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."

If by "nothing," she means everything, she is correct.

Within hours of her delusional statement, another Muslim terror group, Boko Haram, killed 27 at the Radisson hotel in Mali's capital city, while forcing guests to recite verses from the Quran.

Yet this was not Islam, either, we are told. We heard the same politically correct claptrap after Muslims bombed two U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998 and after 19 more Muslims attacked Washington and New York on Sept. 11, 2001, slaughtering almost 3,000. And again after Muslims attacked Madrid, Bali and London. And when Muslim snipers shot up Washington. And when a Muslim massacred soldiers at Fort Hood. And when Muslims slaughtered more than 60, including two dozen children and three pregnant women, at a shopping mall in Kenya. And again after Muslims bombed the Boston marathon. And this year, after a Muslim gunned down five soldiers in Chattanooga.

Though the latest denials are demonstrably false, at least apologists have dropped the risible "Religion of Peace" mantra." --Investors Business Daily

MUGSHOTS: The 15 Dumbest Crooks

For sheer entertainment value alone, nothing beats perusing the Darwin Award applicants who have violated U.S. criminal code and -- more importantly -- any semblance of common sense.

FAILURE FUNNIES: Or "How to Burn $200 Million on a Complete Zero of a Candidate"

Once again, our summer intern @BiffSpackle nails it, the subtext of which remains the timeless question about the ill-fated campaign of Jeb Bush: "What, Jon Huntsman wasn't available?"

Which explains why losers like ¡Yeb! and ¡RubINO! are attacking outsiders like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

CRUZ BLITZES EPA EMISSIONS PLAN: "Our founders would have recognized [this] as tyranny"

By Jon Cassidy

Sen. Ted Cruz and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton denounced a new federal emissions regulation as illegal, expensive and pointless Thursday during an energy conference organized by the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s new regulation, known as the Clean Power Plan, was finalized last month and immediately challenged in court by 26 states and an array of companies and associations in the energy industry.

“The regulation is neither clean nor does it have anything to do with power, other than the Obama Administration’s power to harm our energy production,” Cruz, a Republican, said in a taped message.

CHART: Only 4 Left in the GOP Presidential Primary

A new Iowa poll shows Donald Trump and Ted Cruz locked in a virtual tie:

Support for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has surged among Iowa Republicans, a new poll shows, suggesting his effort to sew up support among influential evangelical Christians in the first-in-the-nation caucus state has borne fruit.

A new Quinnipiac University poll of likely Republican caucus goers showed Mr. Cruz with 23%, behind only New York real estate developer Donald Trump, with 25%. That is more than double Mr. Cruz’s showing of 10% in the university’s October poll. Mr. Trump gained five points from October.

Yes, Virginia, There is a Recession

By Jim Quinn

Despite the bogus BLS employment report last week (so the Fed could raise rates before the next financial crisis hits), all economic data confirms an economic recession. Corporate profits are falling, and their forecasts for next quarter are worse. Global trade is slowing dramatically. Oil prices and other commodities are plummeting to multi-year lows. Manufacturing and Services surveys are flashing red. China, Japan and European economies continue to suck wind. Layoff announcements by major corporations are up 40% over last year. A global deflationary recession is underway. Only a CNBC bimbo, shill or Ivy League educated economist isn’t bright enough to see it.

Retail sales came out this morning and they were worse than dreadful.

BREAKING: Washington Redskins finally drop offensive name

By Papa B

Dan Snyder, owner of the NFL's Washington Redskins, announced this evening that the team is dropping "Washington" from the team's name, and it will henceforth be simply known as "The Redskins." The move does not require approval from the NFL.

Snyder noted that he finds the word 'Washington' offensive, as it imparts a negative image of poor leadership, mismanagement, corruption, cheating, lying, graft, extortion and other criminality; and is therefore not a fitting role-model for young fans of football.

MARCO RUBIO: Congress Should Let Obama Take In Syrian Refugees

By Julia Hahn

In a surprising twist in the 2016 election, presidential aspirant Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has proposed a new plan for helping President Obama resettle Syrian refugees in the United States.

Under Rubio’s new proposal, outlined on FOX News Sunday, the United States would focus on resettling the oldest and youngest refugees inside the United States, including those orphaned and widowed in what has become an Islamist battleground.

Rubio argued these refugees could be admitted under the “commonsense” test: “the 5-year-old orphan, a 90-year-old widow, and well-known Chaldean priest, these are obviously commonsense applications, and you can clearly vet them just by commonsense.”

EURO-POISON: Belgium’s a Breeding Ground of Islamic Terror

By Abigail R. Esman

Time was, thoughts of Belgium led to thoughts of rich, dark chocolate, of Old Master painters and delicate, handmade lace.

Now it brings a different image: of Islamic jihad and men armed with Kalashnikovs, and of secret meetings of Muslim youth plotting a new attack against the West. The country is in lockdown today, facing what authorities believe is an "imminent attack." On Sunday, police raided 19 homes in and around Brussels, and made 16 arrests. Brussels continues to be the focus of their action.

There is good reason for this. The Nov. 13 massacres in Paris, we've since learned, were planned in the Brussels district of Molenbeek, sometimes called "little Morocco" for its large Moroccan immigrant population.

QOTD: "We are not only fighting armies, but a hostile people, and must make old and young, rich and poor, feel the hard hand of war, as well as their organized armies. I know that this recent movement of mine through Georgia has had a wonderful effect in this respect. Thousands who had been deceived by their lying papers into the belief that we were being whipped all the time, realized the truth, and have no appetite for a repetition of the same experience." --General William Tecumseh Sherman in a report to Union Chief Of Staff General Henry Halleck, December, 1864.
