With control of the Senate coming down to a few seats that are too close to call, independent and third party candidates are positioned to play the spoiler in a number of races. In an unusual development, two independent candidates are making strong campaigns in two states. In several other states, Libertarian candidates are gaining just enough traction to affect the outcome of a close race. One three-way race pits a Tea Party favorite against another Republican and a Democrat.
The biggest outside threat to a race comes in Kansas, where independent Greg Orman is in a statistical tie with Republican incumbent Pat Roberts. The Democratic candidate, Chad Taylor, dropped out under pressure from national Democrats to step aside for Orman, a longtime Democrat supporter according to the Washington Examiner. Orman refuses say which party he would caucus with if he becomes the deciding vote in the Senate.
Last week, the New York Times published an article questioning on whether former President George W. Bush was actually correct about Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) that lead-up to the 2003 war that Iraq. While liberals criticized and accused Bush of lying about Iraq’s WMD’s, Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution stated on Tuesday that the liberal left should now forget its old slogan, “Bush lied, thousands died motto.”
As evidence continues to mount that Iraq indeed had WMD’s, Hanson stated that while Republicans wanted to forget about the supposed absence of WMD in great quantities in Iraq, the Democrats saw Republican defensiveness as key to their recovery in 2006 in which the Democrats took over the House and the Senate. Hanson further stated that by the time President Obama was elected, the WND issue had been battered to death, it became no longer a political weapon of the left. Continue reading →
Let’s get something straight right upfront…Barack HUSSEIN Obama has NO love for America, Americans, our military or our veterans, Israel or any of our other true allies, nor does he hold any affinity whatsoever for Christians and Jews…period. Barack HUSSEIN Obama is indeed (I believe) a muslim and a supporter of all things islamic… of all things counter to the Judeo-Christian principals, morals, and values upon which this great nation was founded…and the fabric of our American society in his eyes would be better served by prayer rugs extending from one coast of America to the other.
Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s presidency is a failure…a complete and total failure. The man who promised ‘hope and change’ instead has delivered NOTHING but ‘distrust, stagnation, utter despair, and disgust.’ Continue reading →
MSNBC screen shot of Al Sharpton interviewing Barack Obama by David Thornton
President Obama admitted to the nation on Tuesday that controversial voter ID laws do not suppress the minority vote. The president, speaking in a radio interview, said that the primary reason that minority voters stay away from the polls was apathy.
Speaking on “Keeping It Real” with Al Sharpton, President Obama admitted, “Most of these laws are not preventing the overwhelming majority of folks who don’t vote from voting. Most people do have an ID. Most people do have a driver’s license. Most people can get to the polls. It may not be as convenient; it may be a little more difficult. There may be a few people who are impeded.” Continue reading →
Barack Obama’s two presidential election victories were built on the backs of three groups in which he received landslide victories. Obama won with margins on the order of two-to-one with black, Hispanic and young voters both times he ran. These lopsided numbers of minority and young voters provided him with the slim margin that he needed to eke out a victory over Mitt Romney in spite of a strong showing by Romney among white voters. If any Republican hopes to win a national election in the future, it is axiomatic that he must slice deeply into the Democratic advantage with minority and young voters.
The Democratic plan has been one of targeting their message to individual demographic groups in a divide-and-conquer strategy. Black voters are told that Republicans are racist and want to suppress them at the polls and repeal the Voting Rights Act. Hispanics are told that Republicans are racist and want to deport them. Millennials are swayed by Obama’s “cool” factor. The razor thin rationales targeting the various demographic groups should be permeable to Republican attacks.
2010 was the year of the Tea Party. It seems now that the movement’s impact was a flash in the pan, however. The once mighty grassroots effort flopped in 2012 and continued to slide toward irrelevance in 2014. How did the spontaneous uprising against President Obama’s liberal policies fizzle so quickly, especially since President Obama himself is more unpopular than ever?
In 2010, it seemed that the grass roots conservative movement would shake the nation and upend the Obama Administration. That year saw the Democrats take a “shellacking” as Republicans took control the House of Representatives in a landslide of historic proportions. The Republican class of 2010 included such notable names as Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
Well folks Obama’s gone and done it…he’s pulled the wool over our eyes by successfully diverted and deflected our attention off the upcoming election… diverted our attention off his cleverly ‘put on hold’ amnesty plan…diverted our attention off ISIS actually surging ahead and gaining ground in Iraq and off Iran moving forward with their nuclear enrichment program…as well as diverting our attention off ‘supposed’ improving economic recovery numbers that are anything but…and he’s done it all by keeping us focused on a virus that (rightfully) scares people to death…a virus known as Ebola.
Ebola…a disease Obama well knows has a high spread and mortality rate yet he is more than willing to bring Ebola infected Africans here for treatment while ordering any of our American troops who happen to contract Ebola…while on his ‘supposed’ mission to try and halt the virus…to stay in Liberia for treatment…to stay in the very country ill-equipped to treat their own let alone any of ours. Continue reading →
Oh dear…Barack HUSSEIN Obama…the very man who recently said his job includes protecting Africa and Africans…has now decided…without Congressional approval I might add…to admit Ebola-infected persons who are NOT American citizens into our country for high tech medical care and treatment. And guess who gets to foot the bill for this…’We the People’ and our taxpayer dollars do.
Guess what Obama…our taxpayer dollars are NOT supposed to be used to bring those with a deadly disease into this country…period.
Planning to initiate what he calls “special waivers” to bypass existing laws and regulations that strictly prohibit the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease…any communicable disease…into our country…Obama is going against his very oath of office where he swore to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the American people.

RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS…LIVE…Saturday, October 18th 11am to 1pm EST on CPR Worldwide Media. Craig and Diane will be discussing the important issues of the day ranging from ISIS gaining ground, to Ebola and the new farce of an Ebola czar, to all things Obama and more.
Craig: I think it’s time we have a conversation about the election coming up on November 4th. I’m seeing a lot of stuff in social media that has nothing to do with the election and it’s starting to concern me that people are getting apathetic and won’t go out to vote.
Diane: Yeah Craig, I know what you mean… apathy just like in 2012…and we all know how that turned out now don’t we. Continue reading →
