Raimondo and Fung to Square Off in Rhode Island

The three Axis of Right bloggers all moved away, but we grew up in the smallest state in the union and still keep track of what’s going on there.  Tonight, the state held its primaries, and the gubernatorial race could be an interesting one. In the Democrat primary, State Treasurer Gina Raimondo won comfortably over Providence Mayor Angel Tavares and Clay Pell .  The win was a bit of surprise because, although liberal, Raimondo has not been overly ideological in her time as General Treasurer.  As someone with a background in venture capital, Raimondo is a woman who understands numbers and understood just how unsustainable Rhode Island’s pension system is and had the courage to push for reform against entrenched interests.  Tavares also understood the need for pension reform, but his candidacy seemed to generate the support of many who are guided by identity politics.  As for Pell, well, his grandfather was a senator and he’s married to Michelle Kwan.  So, of course, he had a following in that nepotistic blue state. Raimondo will face Allan Fung, the competent and popular Mayor of Cranston, who won tonight’s Republican primary against Ken Block .  While I wish Fung’s proposals were a bit bolder, he seems to understand that a state that taxes corporations into oblivion is not a state that will attract the jobs those corporations create. As someone who has faith in the ability of people to improve their own lives and contribute to the prosperity of their communities when the government stays out of their way, I’m pulling for Fung.  Nevertheless, it is good to know that the Democrats selected their best candidate as well.  No matter who wins, Rhode Island will have a better governor come January.  Let’s hope it’s Fung though.

CPAC Opener has Standing O for Christie

US Attorney Chris Christie CPAC Opener has Standing O for Christie

U.S. Attorney, Governor-elect of New Jersey (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

That title itself tells me everything I need to know about the value of the “C” in CPAC these days.  They also had a standing ovation for Mitch McConnell, who needed props to elicit such a response ( please donate to his primary challenger, Matt Bevin, and finally get Mitch to retire ).

At least they saved one ovation for Ted Cruz . Of course, nearly everything Chris Christie says either insults my intelligence or pisses me off.  He represents the main problem with the GOP in my eyes.  He’s a typical Northeast Liberal Republican tailor-made to lose a general election (aka, the perfect Establishment GOP candidate). I actually live in New Jersey and can say that our economy was mostly better under Jon Corzine than under Christie.  That’s an objective statement where property taxes are concerned .

Christie adopted Obamacore Common Core to take Obama-bucks, raised tolls across the state, took temporary Obamacare Medicaid funds when he didn’t have to, agrees with nearly all aspects of the surveillance state, loves gun control, embraces the DREAM Act, errs on the side of big government every chance he gets, and of course the embrace .

So when Christie gets an ovation from CPAC , I need to ask: how much Kool Aid were they serving in the ballroom? are they just being polite? are they afraid of road construction in front of their busy bridges if he gets elected President? being the first day of CPAC, were they just in an ovating kind of mood?

There were two pull-quotes from his speech: “Republican governors in this country have stood up and done things, not just talked about them.” Too bad most of the things Christie did were statist-oriented, big government in nature which will hurt New Jersey in the long run. But this one roiled me: “Let us come out of here resolved not only to stand for our principles, but let’s come out of this conference resolved to win elections again.”  I hadn’t noticed all those conservatives who didn’t want to win elections.

I did, however, notice lots of Establishment types for amnesty, gun control, and other Democrat issues who actually lost elections and depressed base turnout.  Maybe he means those types?  Nah!  He is that type:  a total establishment blowhard.

Tea Party Turns Five

From September 2008 to February 2009 nearly $1.6 trillion America didn’t have had been spent by our government: TARP to bailout Wall Street ($700 billion), plus the auto bailouts ($80 billion), plus the Stimulus to bailout Democrat constituencies ($787 billion).  When would it stop?  Who would end up paying for it?  Anyone paying attention was deeply concerned.  CNBC’s Rick Santelli was, and gave his now famous “rant:” Within weeks, in fact five years ago today, the launch of the “Tea Party” in 30 cities emerged to protest this ridiculousness.  Within two months, I had attended my first Tea Party protest — a rainy Tax Day protest in Trenton .  It felt like being part of the early phases of a grassroots movement — regular like-minded passionate people without any clear political direction or organization.  That would come in time. By 2010, Angelo Codevilla wrote his famous “ Ruling Class ” article, laying out a philosophical explanation for a more populist brand of libertarian conservatism that the Tea Party represented.  The elections that Fall sent a clear message by shellacking the Democrat Ruling Class in Washington.  The momentum carried over little to 2012 as the Republicans, through whom the Tea Party chose to function politically, nominated a flip-flopping Massachusetts moderate in Mitt Romney.  The Party stayed home.  Obama stayed President. Through it all, the MSM has thrown vile and unfounded accusations at the Tea Party.  Yawn.  The MSM didn’t create us, so they have no power over us, which kind of bothers them. In the typical model of grassroots activism, the Tea Party no longer fills the streets the way it used to mostly because the movement has evolved from protest to politics.  They aren’t merely trying to impact government, they are in government… just not in Washington yet, at least not in the numbers necessary to move us away from our perilous trajectory. Mark Levin spoke earlier about the need for the Tea Party to fight on.  It should be easy — with Obama defacing the Constitution and the Establishment GOP trying to expunge the Tea Party, the movement feels even more emboldened.

The Democrat’s Awful Work Ethos

In the midst of a CBO report indicating that Obamacare will be the direct cause for the loss of at least 2 million full-time jobs moving forward (that’s a low-ball number in my opinion), the spin from the left this week was outrageous! 

Further evidence that Obama is destined to ruin America. Has this been the plan since day one? To ruin the American dream?

I whole heartedly believe this has been Obama’s plan all along. He has content for America and the easiest way to destroy a super power is to make its people dependent on government.

Science Proves Leftists Are Wimpy

Sometimes a story just sounds too good to be true. A study published in Psychological Science has found that girly–men are more likely to support a cradle–to–grave welfare state and “share–the–wealth” economic policy than more robust male specimens. This sounds reasonable to me and the fact it appears the research wasn’t paid for by tax dollars is a bonus. “Psychological scientists” Michael Bang Peterson, of Aarhus University in Denmark, and Daniel Sznycer, of the University of California, found that conservative or right wing beliefs are strongly correlated with physical strength. The researchers studied bicep size, socio–economic status and political views from participants in the U.S., Argentina and Denmark. Selecting participants from the U.S. and Denmark is not surprising, since that’s where the researchers are based, but why Argentina? Juan Per
