Latest Poll Shows Conservative Ahead in NY-23

Since November, many have called for the Republican Party to turn back to its conservative principles.  Though a few have hypothesized the 2008 trouncing of the GOP was due to the party standing too far to the right, conservative Americans refute those who believe a Republican resurgence can only happen if the GOP tries harder to emulate Democrats.

And conservatives now make up a plurality of American citizens!

Reports here and elsewhere of Republican leaders’ failure to understand the key to a Republican renewal continue to fall on the deaf ears of party elites who endorsed the definition of a RINO (Republican in Name Only) in New York’s 23rd Congressional District, Dede Scozzafava.

But some high profile conservatives are listening, and responding.  Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Jim Demint, and Sarah Palin are just a few who have rebuked the Republican Party nobility who can’t seem to understand Americans don’t want any Republican elected, they want conservative Republicans elected.  Though the RINO aristocrats of the GOP nominated the Democratic dream candidate Scozzafava and stabbed the true conservative candidate Doug Hoffman in the back, these and other conservative heavyweights have now cast their lots with Hoffman on the 3rd party Conservative ticket.

Now the latest poll is showing what conservatives knew, and the GOP aristocracy ignored, all along.  Hoffman now leads both Scozzafava and her Democratic challenger, Bill Owens.  In fact, over the course of the last month Owen’s support has remained mostly steady, while liberal Scozzafava and conservative Hoffman have traded poll numbers.  This time last month, a Siena poll had Scozzafava leading with 35, Owens with 28, and Hoffman at 16.  Now a Minuteman/Neighborhood poll has Hoffman leading with 34, Owens at 28, and liberal Scozzafava falling fast at 14.

The GOP brass better get it figured out in a hurry.  The people are coming out to elect conservatives, in cooperation with, or in spite of the Republican Party!

Mainstream Media Loathe to Cover Arson at Palin’s Church

Wasilla Bible Church

Wasilla Bible Church

The ATF has now joined the investigation of the Wasilla Bible Church arson. The agency reported accelerants were placed in several locations around the church, including the entrances.

Although it’s possible this fire was unrelated to the Governor’s recent foray into the 2008 presidential race, I’m guessing it is related. Now, I realize I could be wrong, but my hunch is some radical liberal feels so threatened by Palin and her beliefs that s/he felt justified to torch the church.

Searching for information on the arson, I googled several different variations of “atf report on palin church fire.” I was surprised (I shouldn’t have been) to find Fox News is the only major news outlet actively reporting on this story. The first two hits on the search results are links to Fox News stories, nothing from ABC, CBS, NBC, the LA Times, the NY Times. According to this Newsbusters article, I’m not alone in wondering “Why aren’t the mainstream media reporting this story?”

Imagine if the target of this arson had been the church of Jeremiah Wright–Obama’s old church. They’d be all over this story, reporting it as a hate crime. But, apparently its only a hate crime in the eyes of the MSM if it’s committed against groups which primarily identify themselves as liberals. This story doesn’t deserve attention by the MSM even though there were actually people inside the church, including two children, when the fire was set.

I suspect the liberal MSM doesn’t want to cover this story because they simply don’t want to report anything that paints liberals in a negative light. It’s no wonder this recent Zogby poll showed the internet and Fox News are the most trusted news sources.

This started me thinking, if the arson was politically motivated, what type of Democrat would have committed such a crime?

Some are speculating gay rights activists may have started the fire in response to the church’s support of a conference which promised to “help men and women dissatisfied with living homosexually understand that same-sex attractions can be overcome.” One would expect a group that constantly calls for tolerance would be more tolerant toward those with whom they disagree, but Democrats’ demands for tolerance don’t usually extend to toleration of conservative ideology.

Or it could have been activists from the environmental wing of the Democratic party in response to Palin’s call for more drilling in the arctic. They’re known for arson attacks on car dealerships and other institutions they believe damage the environment. You’d think these folks wouldn’t do such a thing considering the large amounts of pollutants released by a burning building, but like I said, they’re known for these sorts of attacks.

Maybe animal rights activists Democrats were motivated by Palin’s affinity for hunting. They’re well known to attack medical laboratories or other institutions they believe practice cruelty to animals. Logic leads one to believe that people who place such high value on animal life would assign a similar value to human life, but often this isn’t the case. The life of the elk Palin might harvest next year is more valuable to these folks than the lives of those two children who were inside the church at the time.

These types of people are the reason the MSM isn’t reporting this story. They don’t want the public to identify the Democratic party with radical elements of these groups and others who primarily identify themselves as Democrats.

Oh, they’re always quick to report an attack on an abortion clinic (which I don’t condone) because those are usually committed by radical elements of the conservative movement. But an attack on a conservative institution by a radical Democrat rates barely a mention, if any at all.

And they act appalled that we don’t trust them?
