"Bipartisan" Dem Congressman Forgets He Called Republicans "The Taliban"

Oct 1, 2014 7:18 AM PT

The gloves have come off quite a while back in the contentious congressional race between incumbent Democrat Congressman Joe Garcia and Republican congressional nominee, Carlos Curbelo.

Garcia has been relentlessly trying to convince voters that Curbelo must be hiding something, because he has not divulged a list of past and present clients from his firm, Capitol Gains.

Democrats Think A Allen West and Marco Rubio Endorsement Will Hurt Republican Congressional Candidate

Oct 1, 2014 7:10 AM PT

 Democrats are laughably trying to label Republican congressional candidate Carlos Curbelo as a “Tea Party candidate” because former Republican Congressman Allen West has endorsed him over liberal Democrat Congressman Joe Garcia.

By calling someone a “Tea Party candidate,” like Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) likes to do, Democrats think that it will hurt any politician’s chances to win an election.

Republicans More Interested and Motivated For Mid-Term Elections

Sep 30, 2014 7:25 PM PT

A new survey released by Louisiana State University Public Policy Research Lab indicates that Republicans are both following the news more closely and more likely to vote when it comes to the upcoming November elections.

"Generally, in mid-term elections, Republicans make up a bigger share [of the voters.], but I don't think that's all that's going on here. Republicans are just very excited about [the U.S. Senate race]," said Mike Henderson, director of LSU's Public Policy Research Lab.

Bloomberg Gun Grabbing Group Backs Democrats in Oregon

Sep 30, 2014 7:17 PM PT

In Oregon, the Michael Bloomberg-funded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety is backing  Democrat Gov. John Kitzhaber, while also trying to unseat state Sen. Bruce Starr, R-Hillsboro.

Along with spending $22,000 to support Starr's opponent, Democrat Chuck Riley, they also "reported spending just over $56,000 on ads lauding Kitzhaber on gun issues, including a TV ad featuring the brother-in-law of Steve Forsyth, one of the two people killed in the 2012 shootings at Clackamas Town Center".

Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York and No. 8 on the Forbes list of the wealthiest Americans, announced earlier this year that he was putting $50 million into efforts to build political control for additional restrictions on guns.

Udall Doubles Down on Abortion as Dems ramp Up War on Women Rhetoric

Sep 30, 2014 7:09 PM PT

U.S. Sen. Mark Udall doubled down on his abortion rights rhetoric in attacking his Republican challenger U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner claiming it reflects Gardner's career, while admitting it's myopic, at best.

U.S. Sen. Mark Udall defended the deluge of abortion rights-oriented TV ads in his re-election campaign as reflecting the career of his challenger.

Udall, a Democrat, is trying to keep U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Yuma, from his seat in the November election. In an interview with the Coloradoan editorial board on Tuesday, Udall said the campaign has been multi-pronged, but acknowledged the role of reproductive issues in his ads.

Secret Service follows the Obama scandal playbook

Sep 30, 2014 3:29 PM PT

Whatever else is going on at the Secret Service, they've got the Obama Administration scandal playbook down pat, which is really depressing.

1. Lie about what happened - They not only misled the public about how far Omar Gonzalez penetrated the White House, they apparently were less than forthcoming with Congress.  According to CBS News, "a congressional official told the Associated Press that Senate Judiciary Committee staffers who were briefed a week after the incident by the Administration were never told how far Gonzalez made it into the building."  At today's hearings, House Oversight chair Darrell Issa (R-CA) referred to the initial statement from the Secret Service as an "early false report."

Cop Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal Chosen to Deliver Commencement Address At Goddard College

Sep 30, 2014 2:42 PM PT

In a move that should be seen as a slap in the face to law enforcement officers, everywhere, the students of Goddard College in Vermont have selected convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to deliver the school’s Fall commencement address. 

Abu-Jamal, who was removed from death row in 2011, has been serving out a life sentence at the Mahanoy State Correctional Institution in Frackville, Pa. In 1996, he received a bachelor's degree from the Plainfield, Vt. liberal arts school.

Alton Nolen was Infatuated with Beheadings, Uttered Arabic Words During Workplace Violence

Sep 30, 2014 1:16 PM PT

The Associated Press has a story up which indicates that the county prosecutor is treating Alton Nolen's crime as workplace violence. The Washington Post reports that the FBI is taking the same approach.

The opening paragraph of the AP report lays out the religious aspects of the crime then seems to do a back flip midway through:

An Oklahoma man apparently uttered Arabic words during an attack in which he allegedly severed a co-worker's head, and had "some sort of infatuation with beheadings," but the killing appeared to have more to do with the man's suspension from his job than his recent conversion to Islam, a prosecutor said Tuesday.
