Are you ready for four more years of Barack Obama and the Party of Treason in charge of the White House? If not, you need to get ready. We are only one step away from that and there is only one thing we can do to stop it.
What is it?
If you are in Illinois tomorrow, vote for Newt Gingrich.
Some folks are going, oh no not again. Some others are asking, “didn’t you get the memo. Gingrich cannot win.”
You are right. Newt cannot win. He is all but mathematically eliminated in the delegate race. Even Newt knows this.
Newt’s strategy is now simple. Deny Romney the nomination.
This needs to be the strategy of the conservative movement. We need to deny Romney the nomination by getting as many conservatives picked as Delegates for the Republican Convention in Tampa this August.
If Romney is nominated, Obama will almost certainly win. Romney can only win in areas where he massively outspends his opponents. He won’t be able to outspend Obama. His best-case scenario is close to parity. More than likely Obama will be able to out spend him significantly.
Plus Obama will have an energized base. Conservatives will be out there voting for Romney but we won’t be out there doing the boots on the groundwork that has to be done.
Romney is a disaster for the GOP and the sooner we embrace the idea of an open convention that denies Romney the nomination, the better off we are.
Who can come out of the Convention as a nominee? If we get enough conservatives as delegates we have a chance for someone who can excite the base and win. I still believe Newt Gingrich is the best candidate out there, but if he has not been able to close the deal in the primary, the chances of him being chosen by a deadlocked convention are remote.
We need someone who will take Newt’s ideas forward. Unlike Romney, Newt is talking about $2.50 a gallon gas. That’s something that looks pretty good as we head into the third summer of the Great Obama Depression and gas prices spike towards $5 a gallon. Newt is talking about cutting taxes. Romney is simply talking about managing big government.
Who could we get as a nominee? Certainly not a Bush nor a northeastern liberal like Chris Christie.
Paul Ryan’s name has popped up some in the discussions. He would be a good choice or perhaps we could get the convention to go really outside of the box and get someone we are not even thinking of.
The RINOs are screaming about how a brokered convention would be a disaster. A disaster for who? The establishment? Certainly, it would be a disaster for them. For rank and file Republicans and for real Americans, a brokered convention offers the opportunity for a conservative candidate to emerge.
Who is our next Reagan?
It certainly is not liberal Mitt Romney.
We need to start looking for him or her and we need to keep fighting to make certain Mitt Romney does not win the nomination.
The best way we can stop Romney is by getting our friends and family to vote for Newt. If you are in Illinois, help save America. In the GOP primary tomorrow, vote for Newt!
Reply to Sue Devillez---Some place in your county government you'll find an ofice called--Emergency Management. The title may deviate slightly.
Go to the person who runs that agency and ask what will be done at the county level if 'X' situation occurs.
There may be a plan, maybe not. In either event, ask to be allowed to provide input. Offer your services. Any person can make sandwiches and provide coffee for firemen or police.
The method is to get among those who are in charge. You'll know better than the total stranger what is planed. You can also develop your own ideas if the plans will not benefit you. Enough. You get the idea.

Paul Ryan is a joke too, claims to oppose Obama Care yet continues to fund it, claims to want to cut spending but votes to raise the debt ceiling, wants to raise the age of SSI instead of making this bankrupt ponzi scheme voluntary.I stand by my statement PAUL RYAN IS AS PHONY AS A 3 DOLLAR BILL AN D SHOULD BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE Boehner McCarthy Canter and Ryan are 3 phonies and a fraud
Newt can only excite the base and win if he chooses Sarah Palin as his VP because the only one with the persona to really excite a conservative (Constitutional and Christian) bass is Sarah Palin.
Obama is apparently right, "America is not a Christian Nation". America can not be a Christian Nation and will never be a Christian Nation again for as long as those who claim to be Christian fail to get politically active while others continue to elect Government Representatives that lack the moral and ethical characteristics of Christianity; regardless of the fact 70% to 80% of Americans claim to be of the Christian Faith. Christians do not support Abortionist! Christians do not support slavery or "Nanny Statism"! Christians know that the rights guarentied to Us in the US of A Constitution come from God - not Government, if we give up those rights, we are no longer free.
Yet, Barrack H. Obama sets in the White House, the most Abortionist and freedon hating President ever! And now, Romney is possed to replace him; another Abortionist and personal responsibility/freedom hating politician who says whatever he thinks will get him what he wants at the time he wants it and right now what Romney wants is to be President which comes across to me that he thinks it's his birth right.
I am a Christian. I want a Christian with a Servant's Heart as President. I want someone who will uphold the Constitution in high regard and protect it from reproach. I want Sarah Palin as President because Sarah Palin is all this.
fortunateson, I'm not sure, but obamacare will support abortion with tax-payers money.
The murdering of babies will bring judgement on this country.
The new law is clear: violate your faith, pay for abortions, or pay substantial penalties to the government.
ObamaCare and the new abortion-pill mandate from President Obama's HHS are unconstitutional. We have now filed a first-of-a-kind lawsuit in federal court against President Obama's abortion-pill mandate.

I dislike the poll, media and anyone else says someone can't win. It is just a way to control how we vote. I vote for whom God leading me to choose. No man will ever tell me a person can't win. Only the end count tells me who won and who lost. So I say if you believe is someone vote for them. Who knows all individual that vote for one may end up being then majority of the person who vote for that person. Do not vote for some because the person you really want "can't win" if enough vote that person can win.
Vote always in every election and vote you conscience.
I've been to more GOP conventions than I can count, including a national convention and I can assure you that the absolute last thing that conservatives want is a brokered convention. Let's face it. The convention is controlled by the RNC. So let's look at who is the RNC.
The RNC is comprised of a committeeman and a committeewoman, elected from each state. Sounds good, so far. But who gets elected to those exalted positions? Nobody gets elected to one of those seats, who is not seen as having "paid his or her dues."
Even in Texas, where we are very conservative, we often end up with committee men and women who, although basically conservative are more committed to the party and to the "he's paid his dues" attitude, than to their conservative principles. There may be 10 members of the RNC, at any point in time, who put their conservative principles ahead of the party. After all, if you spent 20 years "paying your dues" in order to get elected to the RNC, it says that you respect the principle of a candidate having "paid his dues."
So let's move forward to a brokered convention. You have an RNC that is composed of people who have "paid their dues," in control of the convention. Make no mistake. The delegates are NOT in control. The whole convention process is set up in such a way as to herd the delegates to where they RNC wants them. The ONLY power that the delegates have is on the first vote for the nominee. If the nominee is not selected on the first vote, then we might as well turn over selection to the RNC, since they will see to it that the rest of the convention goes their way, with such things as rules and credentials challenges. Of course, who sits on those rules and credentials committees? People who have (wait for it)... "paid their dues."
At a brokered convention, the RINOs will win. If you think Romney is bad, just think about the possibility of a nominee like John "Spineless" Boehner or Jeb "Not another one" Bush. The RINO Establishment would rather go down in flames behind yet another Bush, than to win with any nominee who doesn't toe the party line.
But the important thing to consider is that Romney is the only candidate who has proven that he has the campaign organization capable of running a truly national campaign and that will stay focused. Gingrich and Santorum have proven time and again that they are not capable of running a national campaign. Both have failed to get on ballots in important states. But the real issue with them is that they waste valuable resources on things that don't matter. Romney stays focused on DELEGATES, while the others focus on the popular vote. For example, even when Santorum won MS, he lost, because Romney walked away from the state with more delegates. Furthermore, Romney won the day, by winning both of the island races (HI & AS). Romney consistently wins a respectable number of delegates in every state, including the states that he doesn't carry and he takes the winner-take-all states, while the others brag about having won the meaningless popular vote in a few states. BTW, even though Romney doesn't talk about it, he is also leading in popular vote - not that it matters.
It's important that we have a conservative nominee. But that's not going to happen, now. Romney needs less than 50% of the remaining delegates and he is heading into several winner-take-all states favorable to him, that will easily give him that 50%. Both Gingrich and Santorum combined, trail Romney by more than 25% (377 delegates between them to 516). Then consider that now that it's clear that Gingrich can't win, many of his pro-Gingrich (not necessarily anti-Romney) supporters are deserting his campaign. I heard Dick Morris state that they expect that about a third of people who abandon Newt's campaign to move over to Romney, which will cinch Romney's nomination. That's just one of the reasons Morris cited for finally calling the GOP nomination for Romney. (He bet O'Reilly dinner that Romney would win before the convention.)
The important races to focus on now are the Congressional races, so we can have a solidly conservative Congress to keep Romney in line.
After running for president for the last 6 years, and being supported by Karl Rove, Romney bettr have the biggest and bestest organization.
This primary was rigged from day one for Romney- They intentionally put all the Romney leaning states at the front, to try and make us fall in line like good little sheeple. They did not anticipate him having any problems, and thought it would be wrapped up Super Tuesday
I voted for Newt and lost my vote. I would rather have Romney than Santorum. Santorum with his "poor me, I am being so outspent" and the dragging out of his handicapped daughter completely turned me off. The man is a multi millionaire and got that way in Congress. He whines constantly.
Supporting the Progressive, huh? so much for your conservative values
According to Minor vs. Happersett, Obama is ineligible to remain in office because he's not a natural-born citizen. According to Sheriff Joe and his Cold Case Posse, Obama's 4/27/11 "birth certificate" is a fraud. WHY is TPN talking about this usurper being reelcted when all conservative blogs should be screaming that he must be removed from office? If you want to chop down a tall tree, keep chopping at its most vulnerable spot. Are we serious in this country about removing this POS from our Oval Office and dismantling the communist/progressive machinary, or is it all B.S? Less than 8 months to go before Nov. 6th.
Get your poster, stickers and banners flying. fellow Americans!
NEWT! NEWT! NEWT!
An Open Letter To Tea Party Nation’s Judson Phillips
by Tucker Scofield
Judson Phillips, I’ve had enough. I have disagreed with you many times, sometimes vehemently, yet I’ve always thought it better to keep our differences to myself and publicly maintain a sense of unity among Tea Party members.
That changed as of today.
You published a piece on Monday, March 19th entitled “Four More Years” which I found to be offensively short-sighted, baseless, and chock-full of the kind of fear-mongering typically reserved for those on the left. Frankly sir, your piece ticked me off to the point where I felt compelled to respond publicly (and if you knew how extremely tight the constraints on my time are, you would better understand how very motivated I must be to expend the three hours it will take to organize my thoughts).
Mr. Phillips, you have been almost rabidly supportive of Newt Gingrich for a very long time. You have worked tirelessly – and sometimes shamelessly – to help garner support for your candidate. While there have been times I have admired this trait in you, more often than not I’ve wanted to ask you exactly what the hell you were thinking. In the past few months your support of Gingrich has gone from logical to somewhat logical, to wishful thinking, to snowball’s chance in hell. Today it stepped into Ron Paul territory.
In “Four More Years” you contend that the only way for conservatives to prevent an Obama re-elect is to vote for Newt Gingrich in the Illinois primary on Tuesday. What?? Oh sure, you acknowledge, Newt cannot win the Republican nomination in August, but this will prevent Romney from gaining enough delegates to win the nomination. This, you assure us, is the strategy all conservative need to adopt in order to prevent Romney from gaining the nomination and then losing to Obama.
Let me first say that my response to you will no doubt be published in the DC Post after the Tuesday primary, and that’s a damn shame because I’m certain there will be many who take your advice. But any person exercising the first iota of independent and critical thinking will see that your thesis is full of the same bovine excrement you are so fond of referencing in your articles.
Mr. Phillips, Gingrich has lost the battle and should drop out of the race TODAY!! There is no way in hell he should be on the ballot in Illinois and there is no reason for him to maintain his campaign one second longer. Yet his spite for Romney has so poisoned his thinking that he can only focus on one thing and that is to do everything in his power to hurt Romney…the country be damned! And you not only follow his lead, you do your dead-level best to get others to follow as well! What is wrong with you??
Let me tell you something, Mr. Phillips: Should Mitt Romney gain the nomination, no one – NO ONE – is going to sit by the sidelines and fail to pull the Republican lever come November. NO ONE! Those who claim otherwise are utter fools.
But let me tell you something else: No one will sit by the sidelines and fail to pull the Republican lever come November should Rick Santorum win the nomination, either!
The new primary process has been GOOD – yeah, you heard me – GOOD for the Republican Party. The candidates have been fully vetted and we now know every pimple on every candidate’s posterior. The fierce primary has sharpened their skills and taught them to take a punch. There isn’t a damned one of them who couldn’t take the very worst Obama has to offer because it’s all been said before! As for all this hand-wringing the media wants to instill in us, it’s bogus; like everything they do it’s designed to mold the story, not report it.
So we’ve discovered that the candidates are all imperfect, each with their strengths and their weaknesses. But while conservatives and Republicans continue to struggle to determine who will be the best overall candidate, the November election will purely and simply boil down to one thing: Anyone But Obama. And whoever becomes the nominee will be wildly supported by conservatives, tea partiers, Republicans, and even many independents. Why? Because Obama sucks that badly, Mr. Phillips.
So don’t try to tell us that Romney will, at best, govern our decline and at worst, lose the election; he’s no better or no worse than Santorum and he’s certainly no worse than Gingrich, who shamelessly slammed the rich in a leftist effort to bring Romney down in the polls! And you advocate an open convention in August?? The end of August?? That leaves September and October to coalesce the party…not prudent at this juncture!
Romney is not my favorite candidate; in fact, he’s not even my second or third choice. But the battle is now between him and Santorum and if you had an ounce of integrity, you’d call for Newt to step down immediately. Newt is no longer electable; Santorum is. If you are dead-set against Romney, get Newt out of the picture and let the two heavyweights fight it out. Gingrich’s tactics are childish, incredibly immature, and have no place in an election that Newt himself called “the most important election in the past 100 years.” Your support of his strategy defies logic.
