Breaking News: Dan Sullivan Wins Alaska – GOP Adds Another Senate Seat

Hat/Tip to Fox News. It’s official. Dan Sullivan has won his bid to unseat Democrat Mark Begich and become Alaska’s next United States Senator. Republican candidate Dan Sullivan defeated Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Begich in Alaska’s U.S. Senate race Wednesday. The win gives the GOP eight Senate pickups in the midterm elections. The party is also seeking a ninth seat in Louisiana’s runoff in December. Earlier Tuesday, election workers began counting absentee ballots and early indications were Sullivan maintained an 8,100 vote advantage over Begich. It proved to be true later that night. With roots in Alaska, Sullivan recently served […]

WH Officials: Obama To Move Forward With Amnesty Executive Order “No Matter How Big A Shellacking Democrats” Suffer In Midterms…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Is anyone really surprised that President Obama is still going to go ahead and ignore the will of the people? In his news conference today, he said he’d been patient about immigration reform. What I’m not going to do is just wait. It’s fair to say I’ve shown a lot of patience and have tried to work on a bipartisan basis as much as possible, and I’m going to keep on doing so, but in the meantime let’s figure out what we can do lawfully through executive actions to improve the functioning of the existing system. – […]

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

Hat/Tip to Guy Benson at TownHall.com. 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 […]

Voter Fraud: Suspected Democrat Operative Caught on Video Stuffing Ballot Boxes

In another clear example of something that your regressive betters claim never happens, a suspected democratic operative was caught stuffing ballots into a ballot box before early voting in Maricopa County.  The Blaze has more… “A person wearing a Citizens for a Better Arizona T-shirt dropped a large box of hundreds of early ballots on the table and started stuffing the ballot box as I watched in amazement,” said A.J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party. The Maricopa County GOP chairman provided the Arizona Daily Independent with the following account of what happened during the Aug. 26 primary election cycle: […]

  Week seven of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek Out new life for the Senate, to Boldly shuttle Harry Reid back to irrelevance! Focusing on the Senate races is it worth ten bucks a week to you (a six-pack and some beef jerky?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again? With that in mind, this week we look to the Senate seat in Colorado. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Cory Gardner? Real Clear Politics has Gardner up an average of 3.0 points over Obamabot Mark Udall, and rates the state as a […]

Ten Buck Friday: Help Bill Cassidy Dump Mary Landrieu

  Week Five of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek new life for the Senate, to Boldly Throw Out clueless Harry Reid and his equally clueless supporters! Focusing on the Senate races is it worth ten bucks a week to you (a matinee and a small box of popcorn?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again? With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in LA. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Bill Cassidy in his race against Mary Landrieu (D-Washington, DC)? Real Clear Politics has Cassidy up 1.3 […]

The Odds Of Republicans Winning The Senate Are Growing…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Eric Holder’s announcement of his resignation was the neon sign that the Democrats were looking at losing the Senate in ’16.   Still plenty of time for either party to royally screw something up and alter everything… Via Washington Post: All three major election forecasting models saw an uptick in the likelihood of Republicans winning the six seats they need to retake the Senate majority over the past week, movement largely due to the party’s strengthened chances in Alaska, Colorado and Iowa. The most bullish model for Republicans is Washington Post’s Election Lab, which, as of […]

Mark Levin on 2016: GOP Must Nominate Conservative for First Time Since Ronald Reagan

Hat/Tip to Tony Lee at Breitbart. When it comes to the perfect Conservative resume, Mark Levin’s is chock full of bona-fides. From his stint as a 19 year old member of his local school board, where he often times was the only nay vote due to his staunch Conservative outlook, to his volunteer work on Reagan’s presidential campaigns, to his career in the justice department during Reagan’s tenure in the Oval Office, Levin brings it. As if that wouldn’t be enough, he also has his decade long work at the helm of the one of the largest Conservative talk radio […]

Dem Rep. John Lewis Says He’s “Terrified” Racist Tea Party Will Tear Obama Down…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Playing the Race Card. The Democratic Campaign Tactic that never grows old… /sarcasm off Yeah, John, Obama’s presidency is in a tailspin and he did it all by himself. Subject: Terrifying From: John Lewis <[email protected]> Date: September 27, 2014 8:58:29 AM EDT To:  Drew Barack Obama’s election was one of the proudest days of my life. I felt like I had spent decades fighting for that moment…and in many ways I had. But now 6 years later, Republicans are trying once again to tear the President down. And quite frankly, it terrifies me what they could do […]

Boehner Calls Tea Party ‘Knuckleheads’, Wants Rule Change to Squelch Their Influence

Hat/Tip to Todd Beamon at Newsmax. Back in the good old days of the Cold War, the Soviet Union relied on their Politburo to help them rule with an Iron Fist. How’s that song go, again? Oh yeah!   :::Everything old is new again!:::   Well it looks like that rule by Iron Fist is alive and well in the Republican Party, at least in the House, anyway. It looks like Johnny Boehner won’t be caught all embarrassed again when it comes time to vote for the Speaker of the House for the next Congress. See, they have a private […]

The return of Ten Buck Friday, support Joni Ernst for U.S. Senate

Week Two of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek Out new life for the Senate, to Boldly Go where our nation has been before! Once again focusing on the Senate races (Republicans need just six seats to oust the Dimbulb from Searchlight, Harry Reid as majority leader), is it worth ten bucks a week (30 pkgs. of Ramen?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again? With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in IA. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Joni Ernst? Real Clear Politics has Ernst up […]

Republicans sound alarm as White House prepares go-it-alone immigration measures

Hat/Tip to Foxnews. The GOP is preparing for an all-out battle between themselves and President Obama. All signals point to Obama taking unilateral, unconstitutional measures to address the huge numbers of illegal aliens inside the United States. “For all intents and purposes, America no longer has an immigration system. Instead, we have unsettling chaos,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wrote in a letter earlier this week to Obama, urging him not to go forward with unilateral action. The administration had indicated the president plans to announce a decision around Labor Day before leaving on a trip next week to Estonia and […]

Harry Reid Has 352 Bills From The House Sitting on His Desk: Why Wont He Allow Them to Proceed?

You know the familiar refrain-the GOP run House are the evil “obstructionists” preventing the virtuous democrat President and Senate from turning the good ol’ US of A in a virtual paradise on Earth.  And like all propaganda disseminated by the democrats, it is released to the media to be repeated ad nausea.  From there, the sheeple bleat compliantly.  There is one problem with the accusation… It’s completely false.  Instead, it seems that the House has passed 352 bills that have been collecting cobwebs on Harry Reid’s desk.  Here’s more… Post by Lynn Jenkins. So, this is typical democrat politics. They […]

Taking the Senate Doesn’t Matter

I’m writing here because I can – it doesn’t mean that we’re returning to full time writing. To the point.  A lot of you out there are putting your support behind McConnell and Cochran in order to assure a majority in the Senate.  Let me stop you from making that mistake by laying out some reasons not to and then explaining why getting them out is more important than taking the Senate. First, what they did in Mississippi is as insulting as it gets.  Even Hillary Clinton spoke positive of the GOP going after true conservatives and “expanding their base” […]

White House Fears Impeachment If Obama Unilaterally Grants Amnesty

    Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers & Breitbart. It has to be a violation of his constitutional responsibility, which amnesty and effectively opening the borders most certainly is. As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn’t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama — but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, […]

Dr. Ben Carson’s Big Announcement – Must See Video

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. Dr. Benjamin Carson rose to national prominence after ripping ObamaCare to shreds at the National Prayer breakfast, with President Obama in attendance. In fact, he has written about that experience in his new book, “One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future.” He discussed this with FoxNews. Carson, who became a conservative sensation after the address, was highly critical of the direction of the country though he never blamed the president, who was sitting just a few feet away. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson wrote […]

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 […]
