SOUTHERN EVEANGELICALS DWINDLING – AND TAKING THE GOP EDGE WITH THEM

October 18th, 2014

 

Southern Evangelicals: Dwindling—and Taking the GOP Edge With Them

Why are Democrats keeping it close in five key Senate races? Look at changing demographics.

The Atlantic Magazine November 2014     Robert P. Jones      Oct 17 2014

 

Midterm elections are all about turning out base constituencies. Over the last few decades, there have been few more reliable voters for Republicans than white evangelical Protestants. This year, however, GOP candidates may be getting less help from this group—not because white evangelical Protestants are becoming less supportive or less motivated, but simply because they are declining as a proportion of the population, even in Southern states.

White evangelical Protestants have remained a steadfast Republican constituency in both presidential and midterm congressional elections ever since the Reagan presidency, which marked what political scientists Merle and Earl Black dubbed “the great white switch.” In 2008 and 2012, roughly three-quarters of white born-again Christians supported GOP nominees John McCain (73 percent) and Mitt Romney (78 percent).  In the 2010 midterm election, similar numbers of white born-again Christians (77 percent) supported the GOP House candidate in their districts.

During the heady days of evangelical prominence in the 1980s and 1990s, white evangelical Protestant leaders frequently noted the decline of their more liberal mainline Protestant cousins, but now white evangelicals are seeing their own populations shrink. In recent years, for example, the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest evangelical denomination in the country, has reported steady declines in membership and new baptisms. Since 2007, the number of white evangelical Protestants nationwide has slipped from 22 percent in 2007 to 18 percent today. Read the rest of this entry »

HALFHEARTED LEADERSHIP WON’T STOP ISIS

October 16th, 2014

 

With turmoil and chaos  spreading throughout the Middle East and with our borders as porous as a sieve,  it just might be prudent to start considering the benefits of requiring all young men in the United States  to at least go through basic training coupled with at least 6 months of service.   Optional for women !     Nancy

Why half-measures and halfhearted leadership won’t stop ISIS

By Ken AllardKen Allard, a retired Army colonel, is a military analyst and author on national-security issues.Thursday, September 25, 2014

We live in an age of latte salutes and rampant military illiteracy, our military history neglected by faculties of Vietnam draft-dodgers. When only one-half of 1 percent of Americans serve in uniform while the other 99 percent kibitz from the sidelines, the greatest social danger is not uneven sacrifice, but something far worse. What happens when those military illiterates elect one of their own as president?

It is as though the passengers on a crowded Airbus, before the doors were closed and the aircraft pushed back, were asked to elect one of their number as pilot. The results were on display the other day when President Obama returned the crisp salutes of his Marine guards with a latte in his right hand. Because we come from the same culture, I can tell you exactly what those Marines were thinking: “So who elected this guy?” (That’s soldier-speak cleaned up for publication a family newspaper.) It’s a good question best answered in front of a mirror.

Because it was written by the survivors of Valley Forge, men who had faced the massed volleys of British regulars, our Constitution does not view national defense as a spectator sport. Our Founders viewed faith in God and personal morality as the essential underpinnings of liberty, particularly the all-important ideal of duty. To a generation that spawned the Minutemen, a standing Army was not only unnecessary, but unthinkable. Duty would raise any armies needed in the event of what George Washington called “any interesting emergency.”

At least until 1973, when military service became a personal option, not an obligation of citizenship. Thereafter, we embarked on a new era of American wars being fought with Other People’s Kids. Even after Sept. 11, 2001, the volunteer military was working so well that you were more likely on American campuses to encounter virginity rather than prior military service. My kid is doing just fine at Maryland; thanks for asking. And is yours surviving his second tour in Kandahar? Read the rest of this entry »

CRACKS APPEAR IN HARRY REID’S NORTH CAROLINA FIREWALL

October 15th, 2014

 

         
October 14, 2014 
 
Cracks Appear in Harry Reid’s North Carolina Firewall
By Joel Gehrke

North Carolina senator Kay Hagan’s admission that she skipped a hearing about the Islamic State to attend a campaign fundraiser threatens to waste the $42 million that Democrats have spent in this race to protect her candidacy and their Senate majority.

Two new polls show Republican state-house speaker Thom Tillis tied or leading Hagan, breaking a streak of 13 surveys that showed her with a small but steady lead.

Tillis leads 46 to 45, according to SurveyUSA, which showed Hagan leading 47–46 in September. High Point University shows the two candidates tied at 40, with libertarian Sean Haugh (whom voters saw during a debate with Hagan and Tillis last week) drawing 7 percent of the vote.

The polling data comes one week after Hagan admitted that she skipped a hearing on the threat of the Islamic State to attend a fundraiser. Tillis hammered her for that during their last debate. Local press has also focused on how the Hagan family has benefited from government spending programs that the senator supported, such as the 2009 stimulus.

“Our internals show that undecided voters are starting to break toward Thom Tillis, in large part because of Senator Hagan’s misplaced priorities and the negativity of her campaign,” NRSC spokesman Brad Dayspring tells National Review Online. “Polls show North Carolinians are deeply concerned that as national security threats like ISIS emerged, Kay Hagan was asleep at the wheel. Thom Tillis is the only candidate in the race with a proven record of getting things done, unlike Senator Hagan who simply voted whichever way that Harry Reid and Barack Obama wanted her to.”

Republicans moved to capitalize on Hagan’s apparent weakness by spending $6 million on the race, bringing their total to $10 million. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has spent $16 million on the race. Including outside groups on both sides, Democrats enjoy an $18 million to $16 million advantage in spending in the last month of the election

U.S. IMMIGRANT POPULATION HITS RECORD HIGH

U.S. Immigrant Population Hits Record High: One in Six Adults is Foreign-Born

The number of legal and non-legal immigrants living in the United States rose to a record high 41.3 million people in 2013, according to a new report.

The report from the Center for Immigration Studies, based on Census Bureau data, said immigrants now account for about 13.1 percent of U.S. residents, or about one out of every eight people. CIS said that’s the highest percentage seen in 93 years — in 1980, only about 6.2 percent of the population was born outside the United States.

Immigrants also account for 16 percent of the adult population, which means about one out of every six adults living in the U.S. was born outside the country.

CIS said the U.S. added 1.4 million legal and non-legal immigrants between 2010 and 2013. Read the rest of this entry »

KILLER BUREAUCRACIES

Killer Bureaucracies

From Ebola to the Secret Service, U.S. bureaucracies have become a clear and present danger.

 
By

Daniel Henninger

 Oct. 8, 2014 7:10 p.m. ET

“The White House defended the sprawling U.S. response to the Ebola outbreak on Thursday amid complaints that it’s not clear who’s in charge of the effort.”

—CNN, Oct. 2

Ebola, the Secret Service, Veterans Affairs, ObamaCare’s rollout, the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Behind all these names are federal bureaucracies that are supposed to protect people or help them. Instead they have been putting individuals at risk, or worse.

Ebola’s spread in West Africa was predicted. Government agencies responded late. Now it’s here. The Secret Service is so disorganized it can’t protect, of all things, the White House. Veterans died waiting for admission to VA hospitals. The CDC lost track of anthrax, smallpox and H5N1 bird-flu samples. At the State Department, no one seems to quite know why a U.S. ambassador died in Benghazi. The 9/11 Commission explained in detail how the attackers evaded the bureaucracies. Add to this list the Internal Revenue Service, an agency of extraordinary power that has forfeited the public’s trust.

It is past time to start thinking about how much could be going wrong at so many federal agencies. Watchful waiting isn’t the cure for the next bureaucratic meltdown.

The theoretical defense of bureaucracies is that they perform large, needed tasks in a predictable way. For decades, left and right have argued over the bureaucracies’ accountability, regulatory capture, adverse incentives and the like. Along the way, all this largely got internalized as background noise, the annoying price of a complex society.

Suddenly, the federal bureaucracies look like a clear and present danger to the American people. Even progressive defenders of the administrative state must be getting nervous at the disarray in the response to Ebola. Read the rest of this entry »

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON – MAKING HARDING LOOK GOOD

October 8th, 2014

 

     
October 7, 2014
Making Harding Look Good
The Obama administration has tarnished nearly every major federal agency.
By Victor Davis Hanson NRO contributor Victor Davis Hanson is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the author, most recently, of The Savior Generals.

Many have described the Obama departure from the 70-year-old bipartisan postwar foreign policy of the

United States as reminiscent of Jimmy Carter’s failed 1977–81 tenure. There is certainly the same messianic sense of self, the same naïveté, and the same boasts of changing the nature of America, as each of these presidents was defining himself as against supposedly unpopular predecessors. But the proper Obama comparison is not Carter, but rather Warren G. Harding. By that I mean not that Obama’s scandals have matched Harding’s, but rather that by any fair standard they have now far exceeded them and done far more lasting damage — and without Obama’s offering achievements commensurate with those that occasionally characterized Harding’s brief, failed presidency.

The lasting legacy of Obama will be that he has largely discredited the idea of big government, of which he was so passionate an advocate. Almost every major agency of the federal government, many of them with a hallowed tradition of bipartisan competence, have now been rendered either dysfunctional or politicized — or both — largely because of politically driven appointments of unqualified people, or ideological agendas that were incompatible with the agency’s mission.

The list of scandals is quite staggering. In aggregate, it makes Harding’s Teapot Dome mess seem minor in comparison.

There is now no Border Patrol, at least as Americans have understood the agency whose job was enforcing federal immigration statutes. It died as an enforcement bureau sometime in 2013, not long after the reelection of Barack Obama, in a way that it could not have before the election. Instead, in Orwellian fashion, at a time of plague and terrorism abroad, it is now the Border-Crossing Enabling Service, whose chief task is facilitating the illegal entry of thousands from Latin America and Mexico, largely to further the political agenda of the Obama administration, contrary to the law, the will of Congress, and the wishes of the majority of the American people. Mention the phrase “immigration law” or “Border Patrol,” and Americans sigh that neither any longer exists. Yet such a perversion of the mission of a federal agency for political purposes has become thematic of this administration. Perhaps the end of border enforcement is emblemized best by Obama’s own uncle and late aunt, who in open defiance broke federal immigration law and did so with impunity, resided illegally in the United States, broke various state laws, and ended up either on public assistance or mired in the U.S. judicial system.

No one quite knows how to deal with the deadly threat of the Ebola virus. We can assume, however, that the Obama administration’s policy will be predicated foremost on some sort of predetermined ideological concern. Unlike many European countries, the United States still allows foreign nationals from countries with pandemics of Ebola to enter the country freely. What the administration has so far told us about Ebola — that a case here was unlikely, and then, after it happened, that probably only a handful of people had been exposed — was almost immediately proven false.

NC GOP SEEKS SENATOR HAGAN PROBE

October 7th, 2014

WASHINGTON FREE BEACON

NC GOP Seeks Hagan Ethics Probe

APAP

BY: 

North Carolina Republicans are asking the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate Sen. Kay Hagan (D., N.C.), who has come under fire after revelations that her husband’s company, JDC Manufacturing, received nearly $400,000 in tax credits as part of the controversial 2009 stimulus package, which Hagan supported.

“The Committee needs to investigate whether Senator Hagan used her office to steer taxpayer dollars to her husband’s company and/or whether she provided him with insider knowledge obtained through her office as a United States Senator that allowed his company to receive almost $400,000 in taxpayer funds,” NC GOP chairman Claude Pope wrote in an official letter to the committee.

In a statement accompanying the letter, Pope said he hoped the committee would “determine whether Senator Hagan and her family used the influence of her high office, or access to inside information to profit herself and her family.”

According to financial disclosure forms, the Hagans’ income from JDC Manufacturing increased from essentially nothing in 2008 to almost $134,000 in 2013. Hagan’s son is also the CEO of a company that received more than half a million dollars in stimulus funding to install solar panels.
