Mark Begich Says Obama No Longer Relevant

Oct 23, 2014 7:05 AM PT

Yesterday some Democrats went on record calling the Obama White House "inept and embarrassing." Now, Alaska Democrat Mark Begich is on record saying he's essentially no longer relevant.

Clearly Democrats struggling to distance themselves from Obama in a difficult election year have had enough of his it's all about me mentality. Begich made the comments to Washington Examiner Political correspondent, Rebecca Berg during an interview.

U.S. Must Cut Aid to Palestinian Authority--Immediately

Oct 23, 2014 6:16 AM PT

The Palestinian terror group Hamas, which serves in the unity government of the Palestinian Authority, has praised Wednesday's attack on a light rail bus station in Jerusalem that killed a 3-month-old baby who happens to be a U.S. citizen. According to the Jerusalem Post, a Hamas spokesman said: “The attack in Jerusalem is an act of heroism and a natural response to the crimes of the occupation against our people and our holy places."

The immediate response of the U.S. ought to be to cut off funding for the Palestinian Authority. The Obama administration has defended funding the PA despite the active participation of Hamas, in the hope that a stable Palestinian government could reach a peace agreement with Israel. In reality, U.S. funds support Hamas's work to promote terror destroy the peace process. The fact that a U.S. citizen was killed ought to freeze those funds.

Dear Jihadists, America has a steel spine

Oct 22, 2014 4:54 PM PT
The sleeping giant is ingrained in our culture partly because of our freedoms. We have a steel resolve when awakened. We have another "steel" spine, one that millions possess legally under our 2nd Amendment right. 

You are here under many labels but the same ideology. You may kill many initially but we will win eventually. We possess steel will backed up by well machined steel. The only way to stop a jihadist with a gun or other weapon is a good American with a gun. We have many. 

To Muslims in America and worldwide, freedom loving people can fight and kill your cultural cancer. You however must be watchful, turn in the evil among you and have a reformation before a global civilization war becomes reality.

Ernst Targets Washington 'Hogs' in Latest Ad

Oct 22, 2014 4:03 PM PT

Iowa Republican and Senate candidate Joni Ernst initially burst onto the political scene with an ad entitled "Squeal," that went viral given it's theme: "Joni grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm, so in Washington, she'll know how to cut pork!"

Now, in something of a closing act, she's returned to the same feedlot where the previous ad was filmed and is out with a new one. This one is entitled "Lot." See the ad below.

Filmed at the same lot in southwest Iowa with the same hogs that appeared in her viral “Squeal” ad from the spring, Ernst says to camera: “It’s a mess. Dirty, noisy, and it stinks. Not this lot — I’m talking about the one in Washington. Too many typical politicians, hogging, wasting and full of …”

DSCC Going Back On The Air In Kentucky

Oct 22, 2014 3:50 PM PT

It made big news recently when the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced it was pulling its ads out of Kentucky, where Alison Lundergan Grimes had been thought to have a good shot at knocking off incumbent Republican and Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell.

Now the DSCC has announced it's going back on the air there. Both Hillary and Bill Clinton  have recently visited the state to campaign on behalf of Grimes.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is jumping back into the Kentucky Senate race after stopping its TV ad buy last week. A DSCC official confirmed the committee plans to spend another $650,000 on TV to bolster Democratic candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.).

Democrats Fed Up With Obama's Inept, Embarrassing White House

Oct 22, 2014 3:40 PM PT

According to one Democrat strategist quoted in this report, "The ineptitude of the White House political operation has sunk from annoying to embarrassing." And they're far from alone in the growing criticism of Obama's White House.

Most know of Michelle Obama's now infamous gaffe with regard to the name of Iowa Dempocrat and Senate candidate, Bruce Braley. She repeatedly referred to him as "Bruce Bailey" while stumping for him. But that incident didn't end there. The White House press office didn't even seem to know for which office he is running. 

The relationship between the White House and Senate Democrats hit a new low Tuesday evening after the administration's press office released a transcript of first lady Michelle Obama's appearance in Iowa on behalf of Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley. The problem: The subject line of the e-mail referred to Braley as the "Democratic candidate for governor."

This Video of Little Girls Using the F-Word Isn't Activism, It's Advertising

Oct 22, 2014 11:49 AM PT

A group called FCKH8.com has created a new video featuring girls as young as 6-years-old repeating the F-word over and over, ostensibly, to raise awareness of gender inequality.

According to the creators of the clip, "these adorably articulate little ladies in sparkling tiaras turn the “princess in distress” stereotype on its head and contrast the F-word with words and statistics society should find shocking such as 'pay inequality' and 'rape.'" Note that this clip is definitely not safe for work.

Are Democrats' Panicked Fundraising Emails Hurting Their Poll Numberss?

Oct 22, 2014 11:48 AM PT

Rep. Julia Brownley (D-CA) seems to suffer from some kind of depression--at least, if her daily fundraising emails are any indication. At least once daily, those unfortunate enough to be on Brownley's email list receive frantic appeals for money, with emotionally desperate messages. On Tuesday evening alone, Brownley sent me three emails: the first cried "RE: BAD news:"; the second shouted "WOOHOO!!!"; the last merely said "I wish."

Democrats are sending similar emails, often appearing to be from President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and so on, warning of doom and defeat at the polls. "It's over. It's done. We have no ideas left," laments an email from the Demcoratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). Republican emails, in contrast, are far more sedate, pleading for money in comparatively normal terms.
