here’s a bit of a run-down over the last four years of the Khan/CPAC desert fiefdom imposed on ACU and the CPAC with regards to Geller and Spencer. From Pamela Hall. http://thesilentmajority.wordp…
Why is CPAC so susceptible to the likes of Grover Norquist and Suhil Khan?
The organizers of CPAC love money too much and success too little.
Grover Norquist can bring mountains of money to any group, allowing them to hold the convention in a 4 star Washington DC hotel. If they followed principles rather than money, they might have to settle for a 2 or 3 star hotel, and take a subway, rather than a limousine, to the convention itself.
The Saudis attain disproportionate influence because they can accumulate and disburse mountains of dollars to overdrawn universities, such as Harvard, who waste their endowments in ornate campuses and valueless “extensions”. The Saudis hold billions of dollars in US bonds, permitting presidents such as George Bush to undertake useless and costly wars.
The price to pay for loving money is that you lose your independence. The CPAC conservatives can take their limousines to the convention this year, and overlook the fact that they are systematically ignoring the most important event of their lifetime: the systematic threat of an Islamic takeover.
The Tea Parties seem to have gotten sidetracked by the siren call of political power. Their real strength is in realizing the increasing separation of the political establishment from the real needs of the country. Instead, the Tea Party organizers sniff the possibility of getting a taste of the gravy train themselves, and forget their reasons for coming into existence in the first place.
Grover Norquist, by focusing so strongly on tax reform, feeds into this tendency. In fact, the tax rates, while important, are not the most important thing in our lives. The government can save far more money by staying out of useless wars and engagements than by shaving a point or two off entitlements.
The most disastrous presidency in modern history has been that of Lyndon Johnson, who engaged the country in a totally useless war in Vietnam. The second most disastrous presidency has been that of George Bush, who engaged us in two useless wars, one of which may yet destroy us. Bush took out Iraq as the worst enemy of Iran. If Iraq were still an independent country, even under Saddam Hussein, the worst threat the US could bring against Iran would be to give more arms to Iraq.
So, we continue to mortgage the future to satiate the vanities of our political leaders, both liberal and conservative, who imagine the US can influence not only the foreign policies, but the domestic structure, of countries totally alien to our culture.
Quite so Ronald.

I shudder when I remeber how a Catholic college removed crucifixes from from rooms in order to qualify for a state grant.
No good can come from moral compromise.
