New Independent Christian Party formed, calls itself ‘The Party of No Compromise’


 
A press release titled ‘A Necessary Move for Christians in America’ was published on ChristianNewsWire today announcing the formation of the New Independent Christian Party, which bills itself, tellingly, as “the Party of No Compromise.”

Whether or not the New Independent Christian Party amounts to much, it shows that people are becoming motivated to peel off from the GOP. Mitt Romney’s widely anticipated November loss is expected to see some level of soul-searching, denial and an inevitable circular firing squad moment that some (raises hand) can’t wait to see.The best thing that could happen for the future of America would be to see the conservative moment break off into warring factions. Tea party patriots vs. “non compromising” Christians, free market libertarian types and the rest of ‘em. I think this should be encouraged:

BRENTWOOD, Md., Oct. 1, 2012 There does not exist a reliable political party that purely represents the overall Christian agenda in America. We can neither ignore the overwhelming contrast to our Godly principles of the marriage equality and abortion rights agendas, which the Democrats strongly support, nor can we be oblivious to the arrogant, greedy, unsympathetic Pharisaic practices of the Republicans.

There will be a Press Conference to officially announce the establishment of the New Independent Christian Party on October 5, 2012 at 7:00pm at the Kingdom Empowerment Business Center, 3512 Bladensburg RD, Brentwood, MD 20722.

The November election is poised to leave the Christian base with an extremely bitter taste of misrepresentation and miscalculation of our position and priorities concerning many of the issues in the forefront of American lives today.

The misrepresentation of the biblical teachings and principles to which we profess as Christians, prevent us from continuing to support either the Democratic or the Republican Party candidates.

As the Party of No Compromise, the New Independent Christian Party intends to influence the outcome of American elections and uphold the Godly principles by which America was built and by which Christians believe, live and exist.

The Chair, Bishop Janice Fountaine and Co-chair, Dr. Ralph Martino vow to build a strong political party that will illuminate the Christian voice and bring clarity to the Christian agenda to influence America, impact the world and increase the kingdom.

At least they’re upfront about it!

May your God be with you “Party of No Compromise” and help you carve up the GOP vote. Let’s hope your new party gains the most traction with disillusioned Republicans voters south of the Mason-Dixon line. Onward Christian soldiers and all that.

Thi$ Chri$tma$: Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta puke up a Christmas album

Just look at them!

Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta have reunited for a Christmas album, called—how creative—This Christmas.

This Christmas will feature a new duet written for the pair by songwriter John Farrar (who wrote “You’re the One That I Want”) and guest appearances by Kenny G, Sir Cliff Richard, Tony Bennett, James Taylor and Chick Corea. And Barbra Streisand! Why did Barbra Streisand get involved with something this fucking… uh… greasy?

This Christmas will either sell nothing at all or else be a huge, huge massive hit. No inbetween. I’d like to believe that I personally don’t know even one single person who would purchase this product or even be tempted by it.

It’s like wrapping up puke and asking the public to buy it. The Grease-loving public, I should say. Can you imagine buying this? Actually listening to it?

*Shudders*

Glenn Beck: Divine intervention will be seen when Romney wins White House

Fantastic. The best part is when they compare Mitt Romney to… George Washington. They really do go there. Oh yes they do. Wait for it.

Via Raw Story:

Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck says that GOP hopeful Mitt Romney’s poll numbers have fallen as a part of a plan from God to make it obvious to the American people that divine intervention was responsible when Republicans take the White House in November.

“I know Mitt Romney wasn’t your first choice, nor was he mine,” Beck recently told controversial “historian” David Barton in a video clip highlighted by Right Wing Watch on Monday. “I am to the point that — A — God is trying to make this so clear to us that if it happens, it’s his finger. Because nothing looks good.”

“And yet, everybody I know who I consider a spiritual giant feels good,” he continued. “And it bothers me that I feel good because, I’m like, there’s no reason that I should feel good on this.”

Laugh all you want, but if Romney—who is behind in all nine battleground states according to the most recent polls—does manage to squeak out a win in November, it would indeed be a good argument for the existence of God. But what if he loses? Would this mean there is no God or that God is a Democrat or what? When Romney loses it seems like it might be a tad traumatizing for Beck and Barton, don’t you think, after watching this?

Now of course Beck won’t be held accountable for these ridiculous statements after the election. No one will even recall that he made them in the first place.

The clip with Newt Gingrich at approximately 1:40 is a fucking classic. Also, notice how Rick Santorum speaks of the multi-millionaire who beat him for the GOP nod with such unbridled contempt. You can tell that he absolutely hates Mitt Romney. Then again who can blame him? Santorum doesn’t even try to hide it. He can’t! (It almost makes me like him, but not quite).

Some Democrat-leaning PAC or The Daily Show or Rachel Maddow needs to make a slicker, nastier version of this puppy, pronto! There’s so much great material to work with.

The guy just makes it so easy…. Everthing he does, everything he says just tees the ball up for more mockery. I’ve never seen such a hapless man worth over $250,000,000 in my life, have you?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Mitt Romney has got to be the very, very worst politician to top a national ticket in a century in all of American history. MIchael Dukakis must be loving it how Romney’s preposteroous incompetency as a Presidential candidate is making everyone forget about him. Let ol’ Mitt take his place as a human punchline for the next 20 years, I’m sure he’s thinking.

An amusing new poll indicate that Romney is even less popular than George Bush!

Imagine that. The GOP would be in better shape right now if George Bush was topping the ticket. What a statement that makes, I mean… really. I laugh whenever I hear some reichwing pundit or another saying “The media is obviously in lockstep behind Obama.”

You sure? What if they just fucking hate Mitt Romney?

OUCH! First the Democrat’s rapid response video. Now this!

Simple, but effective. Think of the viral video variations on this gag coming soon to a YouTube near you…

What I wrote about this Romney commercial earlier today.
The big ‘Mitt Romney really, really cares about the little people’ messaging hits another major snag

Have you seen the brand new Mitt Romney ad yet? The one where Mittens tries to show his concern for us average Americans? You know, the little people?

The new commercial has already made its online debut, but as reported by The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent, starting Friday, in all of Romney’s media markets, in nine swing states, it will be the only ad they’ll air.

This underscores that the Romney campaign is betting all of its chips on the new approach represented in the minute-long ad, which is about cleaning up the mess made by Romney’s remarks about the freeloading 47 percent, and about reframing the Romney message as a forward looking one. The Dem source says ad buy info indicates that other currently running spots — one hits Obama as soft on China; the other is a positive ad touting Romney’s plan for the middle class — will be replaced by this one

The new ad features Romney speaking directly to the camera; he allows that he and Obama “both care about poor and middle class families.” The size of the buy behind it suggests the Romney campaign sees the need for a major effort to reverse the damage caused by Romney’s disdainful comments about nearly half the country. After a months-long campaign by Dems to paint Romney as uncaring when it comes to working and middle class Americans, video of Romney himself playing to type is potentially devastating. Today’s NYT/CBS poll found that only 38 percent of Ohio voters think Romney cares about the needs and problems of people like them.

The new ad’s acknowledgment that Obama, like him, cares about ordinary Americans also suggests a shift to a somewhat softer approach to the president. While the ad paints a dire picture of the Obama economy, it seems less harsh in tone than Romney messaging that suggests Obama harbors sinister redistributionist leanings that will take away the wealth and health benefits of middle class Americans and hand them out to those other people.Obama’s favorability ratings remain high, and there is no sign swing voters see Obama in the more lurid terms the Romney campaign had been employing, so this may be a shift, too.

The ad also represents a significant reframing of Romney’s message. The previous, backward-looking frame — “are you better off than you were four years ago?” — is replaced in this ad with the forward-looking assertion that we can’t afford another four years like the last four. So the investment in the new spot suggests an admission that the previous framing failed and a heavy bet on this new messaging as his best shot of salvaging his candidacy.

Take a peek, won’t you? I’ll wait. (Note how Romney refers to struggling Americans as if to distance himself from “them,” rhetorically. In the now infamous hidden camera video, he called, uh, “them” “those people.” Richie Mitt just can’t help himself, apparently)
 

 
The problem is… Well, the problem is the Democratic rapid response video that really rips the whole high stakes, last resort Romney “I have empathy for ‘them’” rebranding gambit a new asshole.

Imagine for a moment that you are Mitt Romney. Walk a mile in his $3500 hand-made Italian leather shoes. Your team of highly-paid, expereienced campaign professionals have convinced you to go “all in” on just one single very, very important ad to humanize yourself in voters’ eyes and show “them”—“the 47%”—that, oh boy do you really, really care about “them.” All the pre-debate chips are being bet on this one, single commericial that is perceived as the (current) last best hope of turning around one of the all-time worst, most idiotic, painfully inept national political campaigns in all US history. It’s a tall order, but as Sargeant reports, they’re dropping stuff right and left that just didn’t work and placing their hopes on this new 11th hour strategy.

So you’re Romney and you approve this new strategy to show that you’re not a heartless rich bastard like everyone seems to think you are. By George, you’ve got compassion and empathy! This’ll show them!

And then you see the video embedded below. Wouldn’t you just puke blood?

This new anti-Romney commercial is one of the most withering, vicious, nastiest kicks in the nuts that Romney has yet recieved from the Obama camp, and let’s face it, they’ve landed some real body blows already. All of them so far in this election. Now Romney gets to absorb another punch to his throat and his entire ad buy—which hasn’t even started yet—is about to get trumped in the news cycle by this cheap little web video.

It’s hilarious to watch Romney flounder. He seems to have no idea of what to do next. May I politely suggest curling up in a fetal position on the floor?

There’s no schadenfreude quite like Republican schadenfreude, but Romney takes it to a whole ‘nuther level!

This is getting really to be… counter-intuitive isn’t it? The whole Mitt Romney “situation” I mean…

Republican political adviser Alex Castellanos (who worked for Romney’s campaign in 2008) told Politico’s Maggie Haberman that when he heard about the Romney team deciding to release the candidate’s tax returns today, hot on the heels of, well, months of stupid moves and self-inflicted wounds, he thought it was a joke:

“At first I thought this was an April Fool’s Joke,” said Castellanos, who tweeted something to that effect at me earlier. “But it isn’t April. I can’t imagine that David Axelrod will now say, I’m glad Mitt put this issue behind him. This will drag Mitt’s taxes back into the debate. And there’s not many days left. I just can’t imagine why they would do this. There are 40 days left and you have now made more of them about Mitt’s taxes….you don’t serve a life sentence and then confess afterward. They’ve taken their beating on this (already) ... I just don’t understand how a (being a) ‘little pregnant’ strategy (works).”

Mitt Romney—“If that is, in fact, your real name”—dude, you are truly the fucking Inspector Clouseau of American politics!

I’ve never seen anything like it.
