CHQ - Divorcing the GOP Establishment 

Divorcing the GOP Establishment
POLITICO--Former Bush speechwriter Matt Latimer defends his new book, Speech-Less, from attacks on it from his former Bush teammates, Ed Gillespie, Dana Perino, and William McGurn. He also castigates conservative magazines that serve as cheerleaders for their "buddies in the Republican power structure."

And he blisters John Boehner for raising money for a New York GOP candidate who is more liberal than the Democratic candidate. Latimer says it's time for conservatives to seek a divorce from the Republican establishment.

Daily Lickskillet: Elf Embellisho Festoon seeks to make "Exceptionland" just like a country called "Hope" in which "betters rule over lessers" and everything he doesn't like is outlawed.

Conservative talk shows fill the GOP leadership vacuum
American Thinker--Kenneth Sptiz in DuPage County, Illinois writes that the Republican Party is failing because GOP leaders are not connecting with the town hall dissenters and Tea Party protestors.  By default, talk show hosts who "broadcast conservative principles in their own unfiltered style" have become the leaders.

To Rebut Al Gore, Conservative Filmmakers go Grassroots
Washington Times --Unable to get Hollywood backing for their documentary, "Not Evil, Just Wrong," an answer to the global warming fable, a husband-and-wife team are bypassing traditional distribution avenues and bringing their film directly to motivated audiences through grass-roots screenings in living rooms, campus auditoriums, and rented theaters across the country.

CEI - Nobel Economics Prize Recognizes Success of Liberty 

Statement by Fred L. Smith, Jr., President of the Competitive Enterprise Institute

 

Washington, D.C., October 13, 2009- The Nobel Prize for Economics was awarded Monday to two economists whose work focused on the success of institutions of liberty.

Statement by Fred L. Smith, Jr., President of the Competitive Enterprise Institute 

Awarding the Economics Nobel Prize in Economics to Elinor Ostrom and Oliver Williamson is a brilliant choice. Their work follows the lead of Ronald Coase (himself a Nobel laureate), who showed that the institutions of liberty extend beyond the market concepts of buying and selling.

Williamson, like Coase, sought to understand the reasons why firms take on the structures that they do. His work is a welcome warning of the dangers that overzealous antitrust regulators can pose to economic growth.

Eilinor Ostrom’s work has focused on the ways in which traditional societies manage commons. Her work makes clear that property rights evolve in response to scarcity. 

CEI’s work on environmental and competition policy relates closely to the works of both these award recipients. Congratulations to both! >Read the full statement on OpenMarket.org.

AFP - Order "Your Not Evil, Just Wrong" DVD Today 

Dear Friend:

For years we've seen Hollywood partner with Washington liberals to relentlessly promote their global warming (excuse me, it's now climate change) agenda.  Most infamous was Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth for which Gore was actually awarded the Nobel Prize and an Oscar for promoting a radical ideology.

Movie after movie, book after book, even our children's textbooks and cartoons are used to promote an agenda that focuses on Cap-and-Trade legislation in Washington that will kill jobs, raise taxes and trample on individual freedoms.

Hollywood will never make a film that tells the real story about the Left's global warming agenda and what it does to people. 

So, we're taking matters into our own hands!

Two courageous Irish film-makers, Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, have spent 3 years and over $1 million creating a power-packed, entertaining documentary called Not Evil, Just Wrong that details the real consequences of draconian global warming "solutions" – both here in the United States and across the world. 

Americans for Prosperity is partnering with Ann and Phelim on a massive grassroots effort to turn the tables on our opponents.  On October 18, our coalition will hold the largest premiere of any documentary in American history. 

Our goal is simple:  on October 18 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time literally tens-of-thousands of grassroots Americans like you and me will hold viewings of their film - Not Evil, Just Wrong - in homes, at local community events, really anywhere where even 2 or 3 Americans can be educated on this crucial issue.

This e-mail is your official invitation to join us.

We'll make it the biggest local documentary tea party effort in American history!

I plan to show the film at my home with friends and family and I hope you'll do the same.

To see a brief clip, or trailer, for Not Evil, Just Wrong Click Here.

At AFP Foundation's recent Defending the American Dream Summit we previewed the film for the 2,100 activists in attendance, and the response was overwhelming.  I know Phelim and Ann well and they are committed free market champions. 

Phelim jokes that he is a "recovering European" who is thrilled to see the grassroots revolution you are helping create in our great nation.

Consider ordering your personal copy of Not Evil, Just Wrong today in time for the October 18 national premiere at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.  We're winning on the issue – after many years of struggle.  And this documentary drives a crucial stake into the heart of Al Gore's agenda. 

Thank you for all you're doing for freedom.  We are winning – if we keep fighting. 

This is another step in that fight.  

Tim Phillips

PS:  October 18 is this coming Sunday.  Ann and Phelim tell me that if you order your personal copy of Not Evil, Just Wrong by this evening (Tuesday) they can guarantee that you will receive your DVD in time for the national viewing parties on Sunday evening.  If you don't get your order in until tomorrow (Wednesday), Ann and Phelim will try their best to get the DVD to you in time for the premiere.

Let's turn the tables on Hollywood and Al Gore – let's make sure tens-of-thousands of Americans see this important documentary on October 18 CLICK HERE TO ORDER.

One last thing, even if you cannot hold a viewing yourself I hope you will contribute to the effort to get this film into the hands of our fellow Americans.  CLICK HERE

WNO - Video: ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis Says Housing Crisis Was Preventable If Her Guidelines Were Followed 

*** WNO SOUNDBITE ADVISORY ***

 

Video: ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis Says Housing Crisis Was Preventable If Their Guidelines Were Followed

"I daresay, if some of our biggest financial institutions had followed the underwriting guidelines that ACORN put out for sound loans, we would not be in this foreclosure crisis right now."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAF7mzBjZyc

 

Who: ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis

What: Press Conference Regarding ACORN.

When: Tuesday, October 13th, 2009.

 

Lewis Soundbite #1: Modern Day McCarthyism Against ACORN.

 (4:38) "This form of modern day ACORN McCarthyism has got to stop. Last week, Members of Congress were asked 'Are you now or have you ever been a member of ACORN?'...This is not how we have disagreement in this country. By demonizing someone without due process, this whole voting, defund ACORN, it's all sensational, but it's unconstitutional."

Lewis Soundbite #2: Voter Fraud Allegations Were "Utter Fabrication."

 (1:09) "This voter fraud or the allegations of voter fraud was to have hung a shadow over the Presidential election and it proved to be an utter fabrication and a work of fiction that was created by the people who wrote it."
