How far is the left willing to go to win an election? Consider the recent attempt to recall Colorado state Senator Evie Hudak. Hudak — one of the anti-gun Democrats who helped push the state’s hated gun control laws — was the third Democrat to be targeted for removal. The stakes were high — if she lost, a Republican would take over and the GOP would control the state Senate.
Hudak apparently realized she could actually lose the election and resigned. That resignation ensured Democrats would keep their iron grip on the Senate. But liberals in the state showed the depths they were willing to go to win — threatening, harassing and intimidating petition gatherers. Worse yet, with the exception of some local reporting, the Democrat-media complex said nothing.
Forget all the talk of Terry McAuliffe cruising to an easy victory in Virginia. It seems Democrats in that state are so nervous they’ve taken to issuing robocalls falsely claiming Ken Cuccinelli supports Obamacare and taxpayer-funded abortion. This despite the fact that Cuccinelli was the first to file a lawsuit against the massive law.
According to a post at the Washington Free Beacon, the recording claims to be paid for by the Democratic Party of Virginia.
Isn’t it amazing that despite constant denials from liberals, we keep hearing about democrats admitting to and being found guilty of voter fraud?
Jeffrey Garcia; former campaign manager, for Rep Joe Garcia (No relation) has admitted to voter fraud in Florida. Garcia illegally requested hundreds of absentee ballots in order to improve his candidate’s chances in the competitive democratic primary. He will have to serve 90 days after he pled out.
Garcia’s lawyer said it was never his client’s intention to steal anyone’s vote.
The Washington Times has a story out that Hillary was called the next president of the United States by a Romney voter, Ron Perelman. For the uninformed this may seem like a major revelation, but for those who are familiar with Ron Perelman, it’s more like making a non event work in Hillary’s favor.
In 2000 and 2004, Perelman supported both financially and vocally Bill Clinton. In 2008, he donated to Hillary and when she lost the nomination, he swung his support to Barack Obama. And Obama was most appreciative to the tune of 443 million dollars.
The republicans and the democrats can’t agree on Obamacare. The democrats can’t even agree with themselves. While accusing the republicans of wanting to shut down the government and keeping it shut, it is the democrats who are voting against themselves in order to maintain the status quo on the shutdown.
Let’s go back to January of 2013. The senate voted 79-20 to repeal the medical equipment tax, but since it was an amendment to the budget it wasn’t binding. 34 democrats voted for repeal. Now, let’s fast forward to last week. The House passed a bill to repeal the medical device tax. Not one democrat voted for repeal.
Ted Cruz walked away with the win in the Values Voter Summit straw poll. Cruz won 42% of the vote, with Rick Santorum and Dr Ben Carson taking 13% each. Rand Paul took 6% and Rubio took 5%.
Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, relayed a message from Ted Cruz:
(In the interest of full disclosure, I would like to make it known that Red Statements, which I own and edit has openly endorsed Lee Bright for the Senate. The first and only endorsement ever by Red Statements in a primary I have also endorsed him on other sites I write for.)
Nancy Mace, who is trying to make herself appear as a solid conservative, in her race to unseat Lindsay Graham, who is perceived by many voters in South Carolina as a liberal and who is vulnerable in 2014, has sold her interest in FITSNEWS, according to her financial disclosure report.
According to Cornell political scientist, Peter Enns, all 50 states are as conservative as they have been in the past fifty years. Enns teamed up in a study with Julianna Koch, in order to gauge the direction of the country. It was their conclusion, based on their own work and the work of Vanderbilt professor Larry M. Bartels, that all 50 states are becoming more conservative. Bartels examined James Stimson’s Measure of Public Support for various government programs from 1950 to 2012. Enns and Koch studied the same type of infor from the 1950s to 2010. Continue reading…
Rumored to be much more than close friends, Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin are back together again, but just how visible Huma is depends on her marital status.
Huma Abedin is at a crossroads. She can either have a major role in Hillary’s campaign and possible presidency or she keep her family together. Either way, she is assured of being a part of the Hillary 2016 juggernaut. One has to assume that Hillary would love nothing more than to have Huma as her right hand woman, but the fear that the shadow of Anthony Weiner could cast a pall on her campaign has made the choice a necessary one.
In an interview with Ginni Thomas of the Daily Caller, Darrell Issa laid the blame for what happened in Benghazi on Hillary Clinton‘s doorstep.
“The investigation really is now not about what we know, but about how we can prevent abuse of security before the fact, how we respond during the fact, and how we hold people accountable after the fact for deliberate misinformation — if you want to be kind, outright lies, if not,” Issa was quoted as saying.
