which turned out to be One river too far.
So, why do modern men still cross lines
that Precipitate their Own Undoing?
To me, their tell-tale shared backward looking Ideology and all that they both promote sheds light on the very heart of the Robocon Scandals that include not only Tele Town Halls as well as Robocalls, but a whole litany of other unreported activities.
There is much more than an exchange of services happening here. There is much in this relationship that speaks of a growing connection between the Harper Conservatives and the Right, American Conservative Movement. A look at some of the Issues that Front Porch Strategies promotes shows a very close relationship to the American Religious Right and the big money of the Republicans and shows their passionate interest in dredging up a lot of issues that Canadians have long since felt were already settled. Many of them are issues that even Harper claims are already settled. According to Harper for instance there is no reason or plans to resurect the abortion debate.
Here are just a few screen shots taken from the very public facebook Page of Front Porch Strategies. Just a few pictures to whet your appetite.

So what other issues do they promote? Well they are seemingly in lock-step with the Harper government's views on Israel vs. Palestine and openly lobby on Facebook for more support for Israel, and less consideration for Palestinians and are clearly promoting a very unbalanced approach.
I am having a hard time to decide which clip of Newt Gingrich best typifies his incredibly dangerous and dismal Ideology. Should I raise his racist rants? Should I talk about his stupid take on taxes, his attacks on Muslims, or his outrageous treatment of both of his ex-wives? There are just so many clips, and so little time. Of course all of those topics are open game in america. And again I want to ask you to ask yourself if you think that any company that so actively and passionately promotes nothing but Right wing Ideologues is not very likely to have more than just a business relationship with those who share that Right Wing Ideology?
At any rate I picked this clip because it shows how very practical he can be. This was just moments after his having lost the Republican Primary on Jan. 31st, 2012 in Florida: (Unofficial 100 percent) Mitt Romney 46.42 percent (775,014), Newt Gingrich 31.9 percent (533,117), Rick Santorum 13.3 percent (222,799), Ron Paul 7 percent (117,104), other 1.3 percent (21,613). ).

outside of Alliance Church
Since Harper moved in 2003 to Ottawa, he has been attending the capital city's Christian and Missionary Alliance Church, called East Gate, under the guidance of Pastor Bill Buitenwerf.
On the outside, RockPointe Church looks like a bunker. On the inside, it's a cavernous auditorium with no crosses, altar or pulpit. Instead it has a "stage" on which its many pastors champion conservative moral values while strolling like casual talk-show hosts, remarking on how "cool" things are, exclaiming "Right on!" and referring to adherents as "You guys."
Trask believes the more than 2,000 evangelical Protestants in his thriving church, as well as most of the 2.5 million evangelicals across the country, are enthusiastic supporters of his old friend, the prime minister. "Read more:

And yet Another Contradiction by Front Porch Strategies who have Categorically Denied that they even Make
So, do you still think that the Harper Government has no idea what went on with all the calls that they paid for during the election?
They seem pretty damned well organized to me, even taking the time to thank the company that was kind enough to bring American attitudes and issues right to their door. Are you comfortable with front Porch Strategies importing their Pro-life and Anti-Palestine campaign here?
They do as you may remember, also promote Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum.
What Could Be Less Canadian Than That?
I just wanted to add one final worry about this American Right wing spin machine. They have been saying for a week that they do NOT do Robocalls and only did Tele-Town-Halls on behalf of the Conservatives. As you have just seen that clearly is the case. Oddly they still deny having such capabilities, but they need to be careful what they say on publicly on Facebook.
