Ted Cruz Says Republican Voters Will Stay Home In 2016, IF…

Hat/Tip to Patriot Update. Well of course a great Conservative like Cruz knows what is needed in ’16. It’s the RINO GOP Establishment that we’ve got to put asunder. We have to have a strong Conservative candidate that has the uplifting outlook of Reagan’s “Morning in America,” and we have to overwhelmingly support that person to the point that the RINOs have no choice but to join us.   “In my view, Republicans cannot win… …if we don’t stand for anything.”   You know, if you look to prior elections, the one thing that’s clear, is if we nominate in 2016, […]

300 Former Obama Staffers Urge Elizabeth Warren To Run For President

Hat/Tip to Daniel Halper at The Weekly Standard. “Ready for Warren”? I don’t think so, and even if she won, she shouldn’t accept victory, I mean after, she wouldn’t have built that… A group of more than 300 hundred former Obama staffers have written an open letter urging Elizabeth Warren to run for president of the United States. “We helped elect Barack Obama — now we’re calling on Elizabeth Warren to run in 2016,” the letter is titled. Some of the talking points from the letter: We believed in an unlikely candidate who no one thought had a chance. We […]

Cassidy Defeats Landrieu To Extend GOP Control Of Senate

Hat/Tip to Todd Beamon at Newsmax.  The GOP just extended their majority in the Senate by one more seat, insuring that 54 Republican Senators will rule the “World’s Most Deliberative Body” beginning in 2015. In the last race of the 2014 election cycle, Rep. Bill Cassidy easily trounced incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu on Saturday in a heated Louisiana runoff race that expanded Republican control of the Senate in January and made the longtime dominance of the Democratic Party in the south a distant memory. “God Bless America,” Cassidy told cheering supporters at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Baton Rouge. “We […]

With roots in Alaska, Sullivan recently served […]

Defiant in Defeat – Obama Grows Angry With GOP When Camaeras Are Off

Hat/Tip to Jim Hoft at Megyn In 1994, Bill Clinton drifted towards the center and embraced large aspects of the GOP agenda after they won in a landslide. He even went so far as to utter that now-famous phrase, “The era of big government is over.” In 2006, after the midterms when the GOP lost both the House and the Senate, George W. Bush fired several key people and acknowledged that a change was needed. In 2014 after the Democrats suffer a landslide bigger than the ‘Contract for America’ in 1994 and what does the sitting president do? Does […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Racist Democrats Decry Election of Tim Scott

Last night was a historical night, for several reasons.  One particular event of note is that Tim Scott (R) was re-elected to his Senate seat.  Senator Scott came to the Senate by appointment, but yesterday, he won his election to stay in the Senate.  That is quite an accomplishment, for not only is he the first southern African American to win such a seat since reconstruction (and before the democrats stopped blacks from voting, let alone running for office).  Not only that, he is the first African American to be elected to both the House and Senate.   However, the […]

Just Three Thousand Virginia Voters Request Free Photo IDs Before Election Day

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. If requiring IDs equals voter suppression, then why aren’t tens of thousands of folks getting their free IDs to vote?? A free program that is apparently not taken advantage of. In South Carolina the DMV offered free rides on the weekends and less than one thousand requested assistance. The left has no problem mobilizing buses to the polls. Via Watchdog Tuesday will mark the first general election when Virginia’s controversial photo ID law will be in full swing. But just about 3,000 voters have applied for a free photo ID from their local registrar so far. Critics […]

Unreal: Democrats Accused Of Posing As Republican Election Judges In Colorado…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Seems there’s no limit to how low the left will stoop to rig elections…   You just can’t make some stuff up. This is one of those things. Via Daily Caller: The Colorado secretary of state is investigating allegations that some Boulder County Republican election judges are actually Democrats in disguise. Boulder County GOP Chairwoman Ellyn Hilliard initially raised the alarm when visiting polling locations where she didn’t recognize some of the GOP judges who are tasked with comparing voter signatures on mail ballots to protect against vote fraud. She became alarmed when she noticed some ballots […]

Yes, Ted Cruz IS Eligible To Serve As President

Hat/Tip to Greg Conterio at Western Free Press. As 2016, and the end of the Obama era fades into the dustbin of history, along with all the other failed regimes of the world, we Americans look towards the peaceful transfer of power, and the next chapter in our nation’s story. In doing so, we begin to evaluate those among us who may seek to hold the highest office in our land. There are many potential contenders out there, on both sides of the aisle, so to speak. We have of course Hillary on the Democratic side, along with Elizabeth Warren, […]

La Raza Openly Promotes Voter Fraud Thanks To The Washington Post

Hat/Tip to Patrick Howley at The Daily Caller. In their infinite wisdom, the powers that be over at The Washington Post have decided that it is in their readership’s best interest to publish a story about what states don’t require ID to vote. “Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful […]

Voting Machines in Maryland and Illinois May be Rigged for Democrats

Hat/Tip to Melanie Batley at Newsmax. WARNING! Make sure that when you vote, your vote goes to the candidate YOU choose, NOT a candidate the MACHINE chooses. A number of voting machines in Maryland and Illinois are electronically switching Republican votes to the Democrats, raising suspicions that fraud could be at the root of the alleged malfunction. According to, election officials in both states have characterized the problem as a “calibration issue,” but a software developer and expert on touch screens used by U.S. intelligence agencies told Newsmax that the explanation was bogus. “It’s a software issue, and it’s […]

One Week: GOP Leads 50-44 in New Poll, Obama Hurting Dems

Hat/Tip to Guy Benson at Even though CNN twisted itself into a pretzel trying to, and eventually finding enough Democrats to get poll numbers favoring Democrats in the upcoming Mid-Term elections, things are looking good for the GOP. With exactly one week left until election day, the state of the race continues to take shape. Three major polling series have published their final pre-election national data this week. We told you yesterday about the NBC/WSJ survey giving Republicans a staggering 11-point lead on the Congressional ballot, which may be overly generous. CNN’s new poll is an outlier in the opposite direction, giving […]

Man Told To Remove His NRA Instructor Hat Before Being Allowed To Vote

Hat/Tip to Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller. In Georgia, as he was early voting, a man named Bundy Cobb was told to remove his hat before being allowed to vote. While he was early voting on Friday, a Douglasville, Georgia man says he was asked to remove a hat he wears everywhere, one that reads “NRA Instructor,” because poll workers said it was too closely associated with the Republican party. Bundy Cobb, who is certified by the National Rifle Association in firearms training, wears the hat in part to promote his business, True Aim Defense. But poll workers apparently […]

CNN Poll: 70% Of Voters Are Angry At Direction The Country Is Headed…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and CNN. The “Hope and Change” that Barack Obama rode into Washington DC on seems to have evaporated, leaving him to face a fully GOP controlled Congress for the last two years of his tenure as President. Poll after poll is showing that all Americans are getting fed up with Obama’s globalization tendencies and his socialization schemes. Not a poll Democrats want to see with the November elections right around the corner… Via CNN: Washington (CNN) — Nearly 7 in 10 Americans are angry at the direction the country is headed and 53% of Americans disapprove of […]

Democrat Gubenatorial Candidate Calls Nikki Haley a “Whore”, Follows Up With, “You Gotta’ Tell The Truth!”

Hat/Tip to John Nolte at Breitbart and Erik Soderstrom. Yep, you read that right. And the video will show two things. One: It will show that Democratic Candidate for Governor of South Carolina, Vince Sheheen did in deed call incumbent GOP Governor, Nikki Haley. And that it was in all probability a Freudian slip. Two: It will also show that he didn’t backtrack it one teensy, weensy little bit. Instead he said, “You gotta tell the truth.” While giving a get-out-the-vote speech at a Florence, South Carolina political event, Democrat gubernatorial candidate, State Senator Vincent Shaheen, told cheering fans of […]
