Tuesday’s Winners And Losers

Scanning the mainstream media today, you would be hard-pressed to find out that there was even an election yesterday. But there was.

What happened is the same that happened in 2010, 2012, and 2014. Republicans picked up more seats and Democrats didn’t. Starting with the 2010 midterms, after that election, the Democrats lost 700 seats.  This is governorships, state senate, state house races, town council. As far down the ballot as you want to go, 700 seats.  After the 2014 midterms, add another 500.  They’re down 1200 seats.  Now, last night, or yesterday, here are the numbers as we start business today.  Republicans control 68 of 98 state legislative chambers.

Conservatism Wins

It would be wrong to say that Republicans, as represented by the RNC, won. Rather, conservatism won. Liberalism lost. Maybe the RNC will get a clue from the electorate and stop supporting Obama’s agenda and start supporting the will of the people who elected them. Like 68 out of 98 state legislative chambers. (I’m not holding my breath on that one.)

Kentucky made history. Kentucky elected the first Republican governor in 40 years. Matt Bevin, a Tea Party Republican, won handily, despite all the polls to the contrary. History was also made with the election of Bevin’s running mate, Lt. Gov. elect Jenean Hampton. The first African-American ever elected to a Kentucky statewide office. Lt. Gov. elect Hampton is also a Tea Party Republican. It’s no wonder the media mute today.

But it doesn’t stop there.

Other than North Caroline, the South had a great night last night.  The Democrat Party was rejected over and over and over again.  Liberalism was sent packing over and over and over again.  Barack Obama — because he’s the leader of liberalism and the Democrat Party — by virtue of his association, he was rejected over and over again yesterday.  Candidates who advocated for gun control were sent packing.

Candidates who wanted Obamacare expanded were waved sayonara. People that stood up for the climate change argument? The voters just swept those people away.

Liberal cities saw a similar reaction. In Houston, the voters stood up for traditional moral and social values, rejecting the transgender notion that men can use women’s facilities despite of what is in their underwear. Voters in Ohio rejected legalized marijuana.  In sanctuary city San Francisco, voters threw out the Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, who freed the 5-time deported illegal alien and repeat felon who killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle. Vicki Hennessy, a former sheriff’s official beat Mirkarimi by a 2 to 1 margin.

But it was more than just that. The meme from the media and Democrats about Republicans is, don’t talk about social issues, it will kill you. These election results proved the exact opposite. Fear not. Your vote is more powerful than any media outlet or lying politician.

Press Secretary Coulter?

A couple nuggets from Ann Coulter’s latest column. There are plenty more there, but read it for yourself.

When Trump attacks, he targets the rich and powerful. When the elites attack, they target the average American and everything he cares about.

Christians obsessed with ostentatious shows of religiosity in public life have basically the same disease as liberals who go around being offended all the time. It’s all posturing. Trump’s a Christian. This is a Christian country. How about helping keep it that way?

If Trump ultimately gets to The White House, could you imagine having Ann Coulter as Press Secretary? No better choice to articulate a position and keep the liberal media in its place than Ann.

Unlike most press conferences, those press conferences would be the most informative,  widely viewed and distributed. And as an added bonus,  for debunking the media’s meme, she would just drive the mainstream media nuts.


Immigration System And The Meme

One of the biggest lies perpetrated on the American people is over immigration.  The lie is “the immigration system is broken.”

Enforce the law and see how well it works. Allowing sanctuary cities to exist is not a fault of immigration law.  That has nothing to do with immigration law. End them.

Democrats, the Chamber of Commerce, and RINOs are the ones claiming the system is broken, and that “comprehensive” immigration reform is needed. What that means is amnesty, striking current immigration laws, not enforcing them, open borders, and chain immigration.

The first two want illegals but for different reasons. For Democrats, illegals are a ready-made constituency, already familiar with socialism and eager to get the free stuff Democrats are offering. They are, essentially, undocumented democrats. 30 million of them.

The Chamber of Commerce looks at the illegals as cheap labor. They don’t care about the law or the negative pressure they place on wages of American citizens. Cheap(er) labor means more profits.

The establishment Republican Party want’s “comprehensive immigration reform” because they believe the meme that they’ll not get elected without supporting it. Not only a total pander, but a meme not based in reality. Romney’s loss was not because he didn’t get more Hispanics to vote for him. Romney lost because 3 million republicans stayed home.

All the groups pull out the straw-man argument that “we can’t round up 30 million people and deport them.” No one is suggesting any “round-up.”

The solution is simple and, not extreme. Enforce existing law.

Ceiling? What Ceiling?

Treasury Secretary, Jacob Lew, has warned that the U.S. will breach its “debt ceiling” on November 3, if Congress does not act to raise it. While raising the debt ceiling has been used in the past as a leverage point for negotiations on other issues, President Obama indicated on Friday that he would veto anything less than a “clean bill” to raise the limit. The House is expected to vote on the bill next week. House Freedom Caucus members will likely oppose the bill, meaning outgoing Speaker John Boehner will have to rely on Democratic votes as he “clear the barn” of these contentious issues before passing the gavel to a successor.

As if doubling the national debt during his term isn’t enough, the agenda of the political class in Washington could not be more clear. The word “ceiling” means nothing,  and making a real budget is not in the future either.

Who Would Lie To Save An Election?

After hearing the cacophony of Democrats in Washington over the Benghazi hearings, starring the person in charge, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, a few facts are clear.

Setting the stage to not ignore history, the attack on the Consulate that ended in the deaths of our Ambassador and three other Americans, happened two months before the 2012 Presidential election.

Security conditions in Benghazi had been getting worse to the extent that the U.N. and other countries had left their Consulates because of it. The U.S.. Consulate was the only one that remained.

During that summer, the same U.S. Consulate was attacked. Also during the months preceding the September 11, 2012 attack, Ambassador Stevens had requested better security because of the escalation of terrorist attacks in Benghazi. The Arab Spring quickly turned into the Arab Winter.

Also during this same time, President Obama’s re-election campaign was in operation. During this time, President Obama was telling us that al-Qaeda was on the run. Remember VP Biden’s line? “Bin Laden is dead, GM is alive.” The meme, as echoed by the media, was that terrorism was in decline. When the truth was the opposite. They were on the run alright, but not from us, to us.

Today’s hearing revealed that Sec. Clinton knew on the night of the attack that it had nothing to do with a video. She said as much to the newly elected president of Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi, the day after the attack. After all, through her Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin Weiner, the nearly familial relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood was there, for all to ignore.

Of 63 leaders who make up the Muslim Sisterhood – which is essentially nothing more than the female version of the Brotherhood – we learned that Huma’s mother, Saleha, was one of those leaders. Little attention has been paid to the other 62 leaders, however. One of them is Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of Mursi. Both are members of the Guidance Bureau, which proves fallacious, the claim that Najla is just an innocent and naïve spouse.

After the attack, what flows from the Obama administration and his State Department, is the lie about how the attack was attributed to a “disgusting video.” The lie was perpetuated at the United Nations, and continued through the election. With the help of the Obamamedia, nothing stuck to the two people responsible. Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. The two of them went so far as to make a video of their own to perpetuate the lie broadcast to people in Pakistan.

The other thing that is clear is how right Elijah Cummings, D-MD, was when he said this hearing is political. That’s because the lies about the event under investigation were blatantly political. Which was, to keep the truth of his and Sec. Clinton’s agenda and campaign of deceit from the American people until at least after the election. Where four Americans under her purview were left with no protection and no rescue attempts made. After all, to quote Mrs. Clinton, “It is a subject that we are absolutely required to explore.”

Obama and Clinton lied. And four Americans died. And the lie lasted well past the November election. You bet it’s political, on their part. To save his re-election in 2012 and her election in 2016.

Democratic Socialist Debate On CNN

Americans, illegals, and future illegals were treated to a triple dip of taxing, spending, and free stuff as the Democrat Party’s vision for America. Like most everything they’ve been supporting since 2008, it has been the turning everything we know upside-down. From the American dream and capitalism, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and any hint of fiscal responsibility. It also was the first Democratic debate I’ve seen where an Independent was included. Were it not for the Independent (avowed socialist) Bernie Sanders, the TV viewing audience would have been down to friends and relatives of CNN employees.

Wealth envy and class warfare, with a heaping topping of race divisiveness were also evident. Basically, they get their power from pitting Americans against each other by creating victims, villains, and the savior. Not Jesus Christ, but them and their Party. Exhibiting a moral standard  of the lowest of society, with expectations to match.

Doubling the national debt since 2008, and proposing to double it again with all the “free stuff,” and ignoring the already unsustainable unfunded mandates (Social Security, Medicare) that exceed $100 trillion, were not even considered. Essentially, what we saw was a race to the bottom if Democrats keep The White House in 2016.

They also were bold to say how they would circumvent Congress and the Bill of Rights. The 1st and 2nd Amendments to this bunch are not principles to be protected. Instead, they are obstacles to their rule.

The most amusing thing to see was how they all trashed Obama’s seven years in office with no jobs, low wages, brutal police in Democrat strongholds,  and the bad Iran deal. You know, that deal they were for before they were against it. They all were talking as though a Republican has been in power for the last seven years.


Hillary’s First Night As President ??

Hillary Clinton was sworn in today as President. She has disposed of Bill and is spending her first night alone in the White House. She has waited several years for this!


Suddenly! The ghost of George Washington appears to her, and Hillary says, “How can I best serve my country?”

Washington says, “Never tell a lie.”

“Ouch!” Says Hillary, “I don’t know about that.”


The next night, the ghost of Thomas Jefferson appears…?

Hillary says, “How can I best serve my country?”

Jefferson says, “Listen to the people.”

“Ohhh! I really really don’t want to do that.”


On the third night, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln appears…?

Hillary says, “How can I best serve my country?”

Lincoln says,

“Go to the theater.”


The Ambidextrous Lady Golfer

A group of men live and die for their Saturday morning golf game. One transfers to another city and they’re lost without him.
A new woman joins their Club. When she hears the guys talking about their golf round, she says, “I played on my college’s golf team. I was pretty good. Mind if I join you next week?”

No one wants to say ‘yes’, but they’re on the spot. Finally, one man says. Okay, but we start at 6:30 a.m. He figures the early tee-time will discourage her. The woman says this may be a problem, and asks if she can be up to 15 minutes late.

They roll their eyes, but say, “Okay”. But she’s there at 6:30 a.m. sharp, and beats all of them with an eye-opening 2-under par round. She’s fun and pleasant, and the guys are impressed. They congratulate her and invite her back the next week. She smiles, and says, “I’ll be there at 6:30 or 6:45.”

The next week she again shows up again at 6:30 sharp. Only this time, she plays left-handed. The three guys are incredulous as she still beats them with an even par round, despite playing with her off-hand. They’re totally amazed. They can’t figure her out. But she’s very pleasant and a gracious winner. They invite her back again, but each man harbours a burning desire to beat her.

The third week, she’s 15 minutes late this time, which irritates the guys. This week she plays right-handed again, but narrowly beats all three of them. The men grumble that her late arrival is petty gamesmanship on her part. However, she’s so charming and complimentary of their strong play, they can’t hold a grudge.

Still, this woman is a riddle no one can figure out. They have a couple of beers in the Clubhouse, and finally, one of the men asks her, “How do you decide if you’re going to golf right-handed or left-handed?”
The lady blushes, and grins. “When my Dad taught me to play golf, I learned I was ambidextrous,” she replies. “I like to switch back and forth. When I got married after college, I discovered my husband always sleeps in the nude. From then on, I developed a silly habit….
Right before I leave in the morning for golf practice, I pull the covers off him. If his Willie points to the right, I golf right-handed; if it points to the left, I golf left-handed.”

The guys think this is hysterical. Astonished at this bizarre information, one of the guys says, “What if it’s pointing straight up?”
She says, “Then, I’m fifteen minutes late.”

Sharyl Attkisson, Dr. Ben Carson

Full Measure reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s one on one with Dr. Ben Carson.

Calm, low-key, and full of common sense. Eight minutes that will drive the Left crazy. Not because he attacks them (like they do to him), but because his message is attractive across party lines.

House Votes To Protect Life, But Democrats Don’t

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved H.R.3504, The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

In short, it does two things. It protects life. And it grants the newborn all the rights and protections under the law that any other newborn has under the law.

The fact that nearly every democrat in the House voted against life, is evidence how much abortion is the Holy Sacrament of the Democrat Party. They voted in lock-step with President Obama and the First Lady who believe infanticide is just fine. A woman’s right.

No, Islam Is Not Consistent With Freedom Or The Constitution

Obama appoints Hamas supporter to Commission on Religious Freedom

James Zogby, President of the Arab American Institute, and curiously enough, Commissioner of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, took Ben Carson’s statement to task, by denying what Islam is about and, calling his comment stupid and bigoted. Saying that Carson is “playing to the base of the Republican Party.” Did I mention Zogby is part of the Obama administration?

Can you say ‘Sharia Law’ Mr. Zogby? The term sharia comes from the Arabic language term sharīʿah, which means a body of moral and religious law derived from religious prophecy, as opposed to human legislation, like oh say, State and Federal government as guided by the Constitution.

Carson made himself perfectly clear that one’s religion does not matter as long as it is consistent with American principles and values. He also said that if a Muslim were to uphold American values and principles then that would be fine. And Muslims trying to institute Sharia Law in the United States is fact, not playing. But you’re not hearing that from the media, are you? Ben Carson is more right than anyone on the Left cares to admit. And he doesn’t do PC either.

For Zogby to deny Sharia is to deny the inseparable nature of Islam and governance. In this respect, Islam and a secular government is incompatible. Islam is the religion and the controlling governance of its believers. It’s what one says and does that matters. Obama can say he’s a Christian. He can say he’s a Witch for all I care. It’s what he does that matters. Trading a traitor for the release of 5 Muslim terrorists should tell you all you need to know.

In fact, if James Zogby wants to call out bigoted and hateful comments from politicians, he should look at Hillary Clinton who has made ‘Muslim’ the new N-word.

Greece’s Tsipras Wins Re-election

Alexis Tsipras has hailed a “victory of the people” after his left-wing Syriza party won Greece’s fifth election in six years. Mr. Tsipras said his decision to call an early election was vindicated and that he had been given a clear mandate.

Since Greece produces very little in terms of manufacturing, they rely on imports to exist. Manufacturing is down 40% and imports are down 33%. The Greek economy was growing in the second half of last year. Businesses began hedging their bets for expansion when ‘capital control’ started in July. Now, investments have dried up completely. Now the Tsipras government is poised to take even more of their profits.

Many businesses can’t pay their suppliers without getting special permission for a loan from the central bank. How’s that for instilling business confidence? Unemployment is over 25% and youth unemployment is over 50%. And Greece’s economy is tanking.

Rejecting the EU, IMF, the ECB, Greece seems to have given Tsipras a mandate to suicide.
