Montana Democrats have
made a huge mistake
Hot Air, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/18/2014 5:35:07 PM     Post Reply
National Democrats knew long ago that 2014´s political landscape in Montana was not going to be favorable to even a relatively conservative Democrat. Fully aware that former Sen. Max Baucus faced an uphill battle in any bid for reelection, he was removed from the electoral equation when President Barack Obama appointed him America’s next ambassador to China. The state’s Democratic governor appointed John Walsh, a figure many believed would be a more electable candidate, to serve as Baucus’s replacement. (snip) State Rep. Amanda Curtis was selected to represent the president’s party in Montana at the top of the ticket in

Rick Perry’s indictment is bad for

When I heard that Texas Governor Rick Perry had been indicted, I thought, “This had better be good, or it will backfire on the Democrats.” It turns out it isn’t good and it may well backfire on the Democrats. A Travis County grand jury has indicted the Texas governor and former and possible future candidate for the Republican presidential nomination for allegedly abusing his power, by threatening to cut off funding for the public integrity unit in the office of a Democratic County District Attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg, following her drunk driving arrest. The two charges against Perry are serious enough in their

AN INDICTMENT is a bit of a buzz-kill. On Friday, Rick Perry joined Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell in the brotherhood of highly ranked Republicans who can personally testify to this, among other things. In Mr Perry’s case, the charges are coercion and abuse of official capacity. Those are serious criminal matters; if convicted of the latter, a felony, he could face up to 99 years in prison. At first the indictments seemed like a real blow. Mr Perry is planning to step down as governor of Texas next year, after 14 years on the job. He is widely thought to

A disturbing series of events is surfacing. During the Trayvon Martin narrative in 2012 one of the challenges for the concentric circle of manipulators who sought to construct a false dynamic, intention and motive for George Zimmerman was the facts running counter to their chosen narrative. Anyone who focused on facts needed to be removed in order for the narrative to advance.(Snip)Flash Forward To 2014: So why is Captain Ron Johnson, selected by a Democrat governor, approved by Eric Holder and the DOJ, and then put into place?

Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet. Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is

A friend of Officer Darren Wilson has reportedly come to his defense saying that the cop shot and killed Michael Brown because the teen tried to grab his gun, punched him in the face and then charged at him. A woman calling herself ´Josie´ called a local St Louis radio station on Friday claiming to be a friend of the 28-year-old Ferguson police officer. The woman, who said she was a friend of the cop´s girlfriend, said friends and family were too afraid to speak out but she wanted the public to know that Brown, 18, had ´bum-rushed´ Officer Wilson prior to

Cell phone video taken by Ferguson resident Piaget Crenshaw and shown by CNN on Monday provides more footage of the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting. Crenshaw described the scene to CNN, in which she said that police officer Darren Wilson shot Brown multiple times after Brown had ceased running and turned around. “I knew this was not right, I knew police should not even have been chasing this young boy and firing at the same time,” Crenshaw told CNN. “That fact that he got shot in the face, it was something that clicked in me, I thought, somebody else needs

Dr. Ben Carson vs. Rev. Al Sharpton? Carson on Monday challenged Sharpton to a public debate on how violence across America can be tapered down, using the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., as a launching point. “I had an opportunity to speak with Reverend Sharpton a couple months ago at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” Carson said on Fox News, “and said, ‘we want the same kinds of things but we have very different approaches to achieving them. What do you think about a public debate to talk about the various ways that we can get this done?’” Carson said Sharpton

The use of tear gas by Missouri law enforcement has caused a run on gas masks in the St. Louis area. Local residents, reporters, and video production crews are making last minute calls to places like Uncle Sam’s military surplus only to find out that gas masks, gas mask filters, and bullet proof vests are all sold out. “My mother feels like a virtual prisoner in her home,” said one Ferguson resident who attempted to buy a gas mask. Other equipment being bought up are ear plugs to block out the loud blast from the LRAD sound cannon as well as

The indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry on two felony counts of abusing his power "potentially was the stupidest thing I´ve seen, I think, in my entire career," MSNBC political analyst Mark Halperin told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Monday. "I hope some judge throws it out right away. "It´s not just kind of funny and ridiculous. But it´s an infringement on individual liberty. He´s got a first amendment right -- just because he´s the governor of Texas. And I think, like I said, it´s easy to joke about this, but this is a serious thing. It is ridiculous that he was indicted for this," Halperin said.

Previously unnoticed audio from a video recorded in the chaotic moments after Michael Brown´s fatal shooting last Saturday in Ferguson, Missouri, could help back up Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson´s version of events. Overheard while one man films the gruesome aftermath of Brown´s daylight shooting, the barely discernible audio is of one unseen man recounting the alleged version of events that he saw to another man, off camera, while bystanders scream and shout at police to assist the stricken 18-year-old. At around the six minute and 30 second mark in the 10 minute long video, one man is just heard over

On the first real night of heavy looting and chaos in Ferguson Missouri a Quick Trip convenience store was looted and then burned to the ground. In sharing why, and explaining the motive, you can grasp an understanding of how the Ferguson “street talk” is driving the chaos. A personal message to LEO: If Captain Ron Johnson and/or the authorities in/around Ferguson want to get out ahead of the thug behavior you only need to understand this simple outline and then deploy your digital forensics team – ASAP.

A South Carolina mother was grocery shopping with her two daughters when she was arrested for cursing in their presence. Danielle Wolf, 27, was shopping at a Kroger store in North Augusta when a woman at the store approached her and accused her of using the F-word around her children, she told NBC affiliate WAGT. Law enforcement arrived, and Ms. Wolfe admitted to using the language. She was handcuffed and charged with disorderly conduct. “[The officer] was like, ‘You’re under arrest’ … right in front of kids, in front of my husband, in front of customers,” Ms. Wolf told ABC affiliate WJBF. “I didn’t harm nobody.

Last week, prompted by complaints about his statement of sympathy on the death of Robin Williams while remaining silent on the killing of an unarmed black man by police, President Barack Obama issued a statement about the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. In his statement, Obama called the shooting “heartbreaking” and added that he and the First Lady sent their “deepest condolences to his family and his community at this very difficult time.” He also dispatched the Department of Justice to Ferguson to investigate the incident. Obama continued, "As Attorney General Holder has indicated, the Department of Justice is

New York - Community Health Systems, which operates 206 hospitals across the United States, announced on Monday that hackers recently broke into its computers and stole data on 4.5 million patients. Hackers have gained access to their names, Social Security numbers, physical addresses, birthdays and telephone numbers. Anyone who received treatment from a physician´s office tied to a network-owned hospital in the last five years -- or was merely referred there by an outside doctor -- is affected. The large data breach puts these people at heightened risk of identity fraud. That allows criminals open bank accounts and credit cards

Not all Benjamins are created equal. For the first time ever, the federal government this year introduced a data series that compares price differences among states and metropolitan areas. That measure — regional price parities — offers something simple and immensely useful for anyone considering making a move: It allows you to compare how far your money goes in each state. We covered the implications — how you might use the data to compare income or rent in one state with another — when the Bureau of Economic Analysis released it in April, and today the Tax Foundation published the following map based on the same data to show

Behind Closed Doors, Obama

WASHINGTON — When President Obama announced in June that he planned to bypass congressional gridlock and overhaul the nation’s immigration system on his own, he did so in a most public way: a speech in the White House Rose Garden. Since then, the process of drafting what will likely be the only significant immigration changes of his presidency — and his most consequential use of executive power — has been conducted almost entirely behind closed doors, where lobbyists and interest groups invited to the White House are making their case out of public view. Mr. Obama’s increasingly expansive appetite for

The man who turned over control of the U.S. Senate to Democrats by abandoning the GOP in 2001 died today at age 80. Former senator Jim Jeffords entered Vermont politics in the 1950s when it was the most rock-ribbed Republican state in the country. New residents gradually made it so liberal it now sends socialist Bernie Sanders to the Senate. But Jeffords himself didn’t change. He was always a liberal Republican who backed federal education spending and environmental regulation. When serving in the House, he was the only Republican to vote against President Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts in 1981.

Outsiders were stunned by the August 15 indictment of Gov. Rick Perry by a Travis County Grand Jury, but they shouldn’t have been. The common perception that Texas is solidly or uniformly “red” is mistaken. Yes, for the past 16 years, Texas voters have elected only Republicans to statewide office, and since 2002 the GOP has controlled both houses of the state legislature, but the partisan divide in the Lone Star State is sharp and highly polarized. In 2012, Mitt Romney trounced President Obama by 16 points statewide, but over 40% of the Texas electorate is resolutely “Blue.”
