Lunch with Obama, Now a Bargain Basement Discount!

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Dem Donors Offered “Deep Discounts” To Attend Obama Fundraisers, Price For Sit Down Dropped From $25K To Just $5K… That’s an 80% discount, folks! You know it’s getting bad when your own Party has to be wooed just to pony up the bucks. And this is in the ultra-liberal and ultra-wealthy San Fran area. Via SF Gate: President Obama hit the Bay Area for a fast cash-and-grab fundraising drive Wednesday, but there were signs that even in one of the nation’s most reliable Democratic ATMs, donor fatigue is setting in. There was no listed price for tickets […]

Warren Gives Democrat Voters Hope as they Change their support from Obama/Hillary

Hat/Tip to The Washington Post. Progressive Firebrand and the latest ‘Darling’ of the far left, Elizabeth Warren is lending her support in getting Progressive candidates elected in the upcoming midterms, and in the process is building support for her own run at the Presidency in 2016. Populist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) got a rock-star reception during a standing-room-only campaign rally here Monday, as hundreds of liberal activists cheered her broadsides against corporate interests and voiced hopes that her presence might shift the political winds in an increasingly Republican state. The rally on behalf of Senate candidate Natalie Tennant was the […]

Chris Christie nixes Common Core teacher testing requirements, keeps Commie Curriculum

All weekend the rumors swirled. Chris Christie was going to issue an Executive Order regarding Common Core, but no one knew what parts he was going to negate. Well, now we know. In a sop to the teachers unions, Christie nixed the impact of standardized tests on teacher evaulations. So they’ll be teaching communism, but they won’t be graded on how many good like Marxists they churn out. The Christie administration announced Monday that the state will roll back the impact of new standardized tests on teacher evaluations, in a reversal for the governor who has been a staunch supporter […]

Rubio Says He Can Beat Hillary in ’16

  Hat/Tip to The Hill. In a recent interview, Florida Republican Senator, Marco Rubio stated that he could beat Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House. “Multiple people can beat her. Hillary Clinton is not unbeatable,” the GOP presidential hopeful told radio host Hugh Hewitt in an interview Friday. When asked whether he’s concerned about Clinton’s extensive foreign policy background if he or another Republican candidate ran against her, Rubio quickly slammed the potential Democratic frontrunner. He says he’d use her own record against her. “I’d ask her: You were the secretary of State during the first four years […]

To complete the destruction of America, Obama annoints Elizabeth Warren as his successor

Fauxcahontas 2016! Because nothing will energize his progressive moonbat base better than a fake Indian princess feminut. Ed Klein reports that Obama is using Valerie Jarrett to urge Elizabeth Warren to challenge Hillary in the primary to protect Obama’s transformation of the nation into something of which he and Michelle can be proud. Warren will protect Obama’s, ahem, achievements, Hillary can’t be trusted to do that. It’s entirely believable. Whether it’s true remains to be seen. I can see it being true. There’s no love lost between the Obamas and the Clintons. And it gives Valerie Jarrett the opportunity to […]

Romney was Right

Hat/Tip to Newsmax and Politico. He tried to tell America during his ill-fated 2012 run for the President of the United States, but it seems he wasn’t listened to. Well at least it’s for sure that Obama didn’t believe him or listen to him, judging by Obama’s spectacularly awful year and half since winning his second term. In the nearly 20 months since Mitt Romney lost the election to President Barack Obama, many of the former Massachusetts governor’s predictions have played out on the world stage. For instance, Romney called Russia the nation’s “number one geopolitical foe”; he pledged strong […]

True the Vote Files Suit against Mississipi, State Republican Party

Hat/Tip to True the Vote. Requests Immediate Access to Election Records Ahead of Certification Deadline Catherine Englebrecht’s organization that was targeted by the IRS in the Tea Party Targeting Scandal is now suing the State of Mississippi and the Mississippi GOP over the recent Thad Cochran/Chris McDaniel primary election. True the Vote (TTV), the nation’s leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today filed suit in federal court against the Mississippi Secretary of State and the State Republican Party, asking the Court to immediately order that election records be shared to inspect for illegal votes ahead of certification for the June 24 U.S. […]

Chris McDaniel Received More Republican Votes than Thad Cochran

Hat/Tip to Jenny Beth Martin at Breitbart. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Should Intervene In Mississippi Jenny Beth Martin, of the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund is calling on the RNC to step in and do the right thing in the recent Mississippi election where entrenched establishment Republican, Thad Cochran resorted to race baiting and hiring Democratic operatives to cull Democrats for crossover votes. Jenny Beth Martin, chair of the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, is calling on Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus to intervene in the Mississippi Senate race over incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran’s reliance on Democratic voters […]

Scandal-plagued Democratic operative worked the black vote for Cochran

Hat/Tip to Eliana Johnson at NRO. Thad Cochran and his campaign pulled out all the stops in his victory over Tea Party candidate, Chris McDaniel last week, and I do mean pulled out ALL the stops. They even turned to a scandal-ridden Democratic operative with more skeletons in her closet than in all of Davy Jones’ locker… Meet what appears to be one of the keys to Thad Cochran’s black-turnout operation, Mitzi Bickers. She is, from all appearances, something of a renaissance woman: She is not only the pastor of Atlanta’s Emmanuel Baptist Church but also a former president of […]

More Foul Play by the Thad Cochran Campaign Surfacing

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. There May Be Enough Invalidated Votes to Overturn Cochran Victory Time to stop the RNC game of playing nice and to take the gloves off. Via GWP The Chris McDaniel campaign has identified multiple Mississippi counties in which enough improper ballots have been cast that a legal challenge to the outcome of the election is warranted. This after Thad Cochran reportedly relied on 25,000-35,000 Democrat votes to pull him to victory in the June 24 runoff. UPDATE: The Cochran campaign is reportedly asking county clerks not to certify the voting rolls until the last day possible so […]

Mississippi Mud

“In light of last night’s election results in Mississippi, there is one question every conservative should be asking: How much longer can a party survive when its leadership is inexorably against the ethos of its base?” –  Daniel Horowitz “The GOP respects no truth, has no honor, is without any principle or standard of decency.” — Rob Cunningham “The Republicans have become the party of lobbyists, most of whom were on twitter celebrating their purchase.” – Erick Erickson “Republicans and democrats, democrats and republicans, what’s the difference? Neither represent the American people or give one big crap about defending individual […]

Tea Party/Conservative movement alive and well, making big gains

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. Some Tea Party Victories the Mainstream Media Refuses to Cover The far left wingnuts in power in the MSM are trumpeting the news that the Tea Party is dead. LOL Fat chance, but keep trying to fool yourself there, MSM. The mainstream media is back at it. The McDaniel campaign appears to be mounting a legal challenge to the dirty tricks that won Thad Cochran the GOP nomination, but the media has once again pounced on the narrative that the Tea Party is dead. We’ve heard it all before. It’s easy to announce […]

The Flier That Got Thad Cochran Elected? GOP uses Democrat type race baiting to win election

Hat/Tip to John Fund via NRO. Evidently the Democrats aren’t the only ones who will stoop low enough to play the race card to win an election. Thad Cochran and his campaign sent the flyer shown below to predominantly black neighborhoods. The message on that flyer? Chris McDaniel and the Tea Party don’t want black people to vote. Some 35,000 registered Democrats crossed party lines to vote in the primary for Cochran. Despicable. It’s generally agreed that Thad Cochran squeaked out a win in Mississippi last night in part by getting Democrats, especially African Americans, to turn out. Here’s a […]

From Dirty Harry to Fraidy Cat

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Harry Reid sees the writing on the wall. His precious position of leadership is slipping from his gnarled hands and he is blaming anyone and everyone but himself. “Polling is close in 11 states, and only six seats protect us from Republican control over everything from the future of healthcare reform to the next Supreme Court nomination,” Reid states in a mailing on Friday. “The Koch Brothers and Karl Rove are pouring a mountain of cash into taking over the Senate.” He notes that winning four tightly contested states “is essential if we’re going to stop them.” […]

Far Left Purges Moderates in Primaries, but only Tea Party are ‘extremists’

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Moonbats Push Democratic Party To Extreme Left As “Elizabeth Warren Wing” Purges Moderates In Primaries… Yep, we hear all the time how the Tea Party and those ‘evil’ Koch Brothers are pushing the GOP waaaaay to the right, but nary a peep from the MSM when the Moonbats push the Democrats to the left. Via The Atlantic: This year’s Republican primaries have been closely watched by pundits sifting for clues about the relative primacy of the GOP’s warring factions. But Democrats have primaries too—and this year, the left is winning many of them. National liberals point to […]

The In’s and Out’s of why Dave Brat defeated Eric Cantor

A simply stunning outcome last night in Virginia.  A house majority leader loses in his party’s primary.  Something that has never happened in the history of our country.  I personally thought that Cantor didn’t take the race seriously enough but would still win out in the end.  I was wrong.  He lost by more than ten points. But I will say that people who don’t understand the ins and outs of Virginia politics are getting some things wrong.  On the national stage they are talking about how Brat won on the amnesty issue.  There may be some of that in […]

Tea Party Speaks – Eric Cantor is out!

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Tea Party Claims Huge Scalp as Cantor Crashes in Primary The reports of the Tea Party’s death are greatly exaggerated. It is alive and well in Virginia, and it took Eric Cantor as it’s next victim. In the most stunning upset of the midterm election season, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was crushed in the Virginia Republican primary Tuesday by little-known tea party-backed challenger Dave Brat. With 90.2 percent of the vote counted, Brat had 55.4 percent to Cantor’s 44.6 percent. “I know there’s a lot of long faces here tonight,” Cantor told shocked supporters in a […]

Texas GOP Straw Poll: Could we be looking at a Cruz/Carson Ticket in ’16?

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Well that’s the results of a GOP Straw Poll in which Conservative Republican and darling of the Tea Party, Ted Cruz and Conservative favorite, Dr. Ben Carson nabbed the number one and two spots. I know, I know! It’s way too early and it’s only a beauty contest, but hell, it’s still a good indicator that the electorate is tired of establishment candidates, and besides, Carson didn’t even show up at the convention – and STILL got second place! And how did Chris Christie do? Dead last at only 1.3% of the vote. Cruz captured 43.4 percent […]

Hillary Speech tix slashed almost 70%, public at large STILL a No-Show

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Hillary has good reason to be worried. At an exclusive event where ticket sellers note how her,…” ‘smart power’ approach to foreign policy repositioned American diplomacy and development for the 21st century,” ticket buyers are few and far between. Only around 200 tickets have been sold, which is about 3% of the venue’s seating. THREE PERCENT But… but… but…she’s a lock for 2016! But that’s okay, I mean she’s going to run on income inequality, so she can always say us poor folk can’t even afford her speeches… Seeing Hillary Clinton live and up close isn’t quite […]

Louis Farrakhan Supporter, John Conyers, Back on Ballot: Used Non-Registered Voters, Oh Well…

Remember the 2012 presidential elections when Republican presidential candidates Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Jon Huntsman and Newt Gingrich failed to receive the required 10,000 signatures for a ballot placement in the important state of Virginia? They did not end up on the ballot, but Democrats in Michigan have better fortunes. Congressman John Conyers, running for yet another opportunity to screw the American people through his congressional privilege, allowed non-registered voters to circulate petitions gathering names for his run, and — the petitions failed to get the required 1,000 VALID signatures. After the INVALID names were removed, Conyers had only about 400 presumed […]

Texas Democrats Abort Wendy Davis

Hat/Tip to BlurBrain. Note to the Democratic Party: Ridiculing handicapped people and advocating for the murder of babies are not vote getting strategies. In fact, it seems that you’ve pissed a bunch of people off. Georgia is about to get the spoils of the train wreck that is the Wendy Davis campaign. Tuesday night, Democratic voters in Texas signaled they would be aborting Davis’s campaign in November. In the Democratic Primary in Texas in 2014, Wendy Davis somehow managed to get fewer votes than any Democratic gubernatorial nominee since 1998. She got fewer votes than the Democrats’ nominee in 2002, […]

Obama encountering growing election-year dissent from Democrats

Hat/Tip Foxnews. Are they FINALLY waking up? Or is he just not enough of a tyrant for them? President Barack Obama is encountering an increasingly resistant Democratic caucus on Capitol Hill, as lawmakers in his party break with him on a series of issues in the run-up to the November elections. On issues such as judicial nominees, the Keystone XL pipeline, taxes and trade, the fraying party unity is a sign that individual Democrats have reached a point where their own re-election needs take precedence over Mr. Obama’s goals. It is a common election-year posture for lawmakers from the same […]

Great news from Jeb Bush: I’ll govern like Lyndon Johnson did

Jeb Bush is making all the sounds that one makes when readying themselves to begin a campaign for President. He’s getting his ducks in a row, schmoozing the right big money donors, and doing all the right things – except trying to woo the GOP base. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson, the Democrat famous for expanding the U.S. welfare state through the “Great Society,” if he were elected president. According to the Miami Herald, Bush made those comments Wednesday night in San Antonio, Florida at Saint Leo University, while speaking about […]

Cedarville Christian University Fired Boehner Challenger J.D. Winteregg, Then Called for Boehner to Pass Immigration

Dr. William Brown is Ohio’s Cedarville University chancellor. John Boehner is Brown’s congressman. One of the Cedarville professors, J.D. Winteregg, had the audacity to challenge Speaker Boeher and do it with humor and pith. A racy ‘Cialis’ takeoff campaign ad went viral, and adjunct professor Winteregg promptly lost his job. The two prior Boehner challengers lost their jobs as well, while the campaign was under way. But we can understand, Cedarville is a Christian University, and that Cialis-takeoff was just too much for all those Christian college students who have been watching these ads, and far worse, for years. The […]

Allen West Comes Forward With Evidence of Voter Fraud

What voter fraud? For another, in what looks to become a series of stories here at CH 2.0, we turn to former Representative from Florida, Colonel Allen West. The Conservative Tribune reports that voter fraud is more widespread than the left or the MSM would want us to believe.  No matter how hard you try to convince them, liberals are convinced that voter fraud is just some bogey man created in the minds of racist conservatives to justify implementing voter ID laws that disenfranchise black people. Of course, these people are out of touch with reality, as voter fraud is […]
