Is Joe Scarborough's support of Mark Sanford an indicator of GOP abandoning family values?

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough lavished praise upon former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) after watching an ad for Sanford’s bid for a congressional seat.

“I would have supported him in 2012 without a second guess,” Scarborough said of Sanford, who was a rising Republican player before being forced out of office in 2009 following revelations that he had engaged in an affair with an Argentinian woman whom he visited under the pretense of “hiking the Appalachian trail.”

Sanford announced his intention to run for Congress last month, and recently released a new ad that both addresses his past infidelities while promoting his credentials as a fiscal conservative.

“I’ve cut spending, reduced debt and made Washington more accountable,” Sanford said in the ad. “More recently, I’ve experienced how none of us go through life without mistakes. But in their wake we can learn a lot about grace, a God of second chances, and be the better for it.”

Scarborough said that, while serving in the House of Representatives alongside Sanford, “There was nobody more courageous than Mark,” before telling his panelists an anecdote about the two former GOP House members being threatened by allies of then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich over pushing for too many spending cuts.

“I’m sitting there next to Mark saying, ‘This isn’t good. This is not good. I’ve burned one bridge too many,’” Scarborough recalled. “And Mark looks up at them and he starts laughing. He turns to me and he goes, ‘Are they threatening us?’ And he got up, and he walked out. And they just froze, scared to death. That was just Mark.”

    Politicans deserve Oscars for deceiving people, the GOP never cared about morals just like the Democrat Party doesn't care about poor people. They only care for power.

    Hitler was into the occult and in the order, we should always consider him a war criminal. Historian Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke analyzed the topic in The Occult Roots of Nazism. He argued cautiously for some real links between some ideals of Ariosophy and Nazi ideology, but also analyzed the problems of the numerous popular "occult historiography" books written on the topic. He separated empiricism and sociology from the "Modern Mythology of Nazi Occultism" books which "have represented the Nazi phenomenon as the product of arcane and demonic influence". He considered most of these to be "sensational and under-researched".[1]

    I hope to show that most modern secret societies and especially those that practice degrees of initiation — and that is the key — are really one society with one purpose. You may call them whatever you wish — the Order of the Quest, the JASON Society, the Roshaniya, the Qabbalah, the Knights Templar, the Knights of Malta, the Knights of Columbus, the Jesuits, the Masons, the Ancient and Mystical Order of Rosae Crucis, the Illuminati, the Nazi Party, the Communist Party, the Executive Members of the Council on Foreign Relations, The Group, the Brotherhood of the Dragon, the Rosicrucians, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Open Friendly Secret Society (the Vatican), the Russell Trust, the Skull & Bones, the Scroll & Key, the Order — they are all the same and all work toward the same ultimate goal, a New World Order. Many of them, however, disagree on exactly who will rule this New World Order, and that is what causes them to sometimes pull in opposite directions while nevertheless proceeding toward the same goal.

    The Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland, also known as the British Zionist Federation or simply the Zionist Federation (ZF), was established in 1899 to campaign for a permanent homeland for the Jewish people. The Zionist Federation is an umbrella organisation for the Zionist movement in the United Kingdom, representing more than 120 organisations, and over 50,000 affiliated members. In 1917 Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild was the addressee of the Balfour Declaration to the Zionist Federation,[29] which committed the British government to the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people. The Rothschilds also go by the titles "Robber Barons."

    Bohemian Grove is a 2,700-acre (1,100 ha) campground located at 20601 Bohemian Avenue, in Monte Rio, California, belonging to a private San Francisco-based men's art club known as the Bohemian Club. In mid-July each year, Bohemian Grove hosts a two-week, three-weekend encampment of some of the most powerful men in the world.[1][2] Since the founding of the club, the Bohemian Grove's mascot has been an owl, symbolizing knowledge. A 40-foot (12 m) hollow owl statue made of concrete over steel supports stands at the head of the lake in the Grove; this Owl Shrine was designed by sculptor and two-time club president Haig Patigian, and built in the 1920s.[17] Since 1929, the Owl Shrine has served as the backdrop of the yearly Cremation of Care ceremony.[2] Also known as Moloch in biblical reference which was a idol which children were slaughtered in sacrifice to in Cannanite or the Masonic symbol for wisdom.

    The Thule Society (pron.: /ˈθjuːliː/; German: Thule-Gesellschaft), originally the Studiengruppe für germanisches Altertum ("Study Group for Germanic Antiquity"), was a German occultist and völkisch group in Munich, named after a mythical northern country from Greek legend. The Society is notable chiefly as the organization that sponsored the Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (DAP), which was later reorganized by Adolf Hitler into the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP or Nazi Party).

    What IceT said. Joe Scarborough has no authority to set the GOP platform. Jeez, he works for MSNBC. That should be your first clue.
