Nikki Haley Picks Tim
Scott for U.S. Senate

National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/17/2012 9:47:40 AM

Multiple media sources are reporting that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will indeed name Rep. Tim Scott to be the next senator from South Carolina. Scott will serve for two years, and then presumably run in a special election in 2014. If reelected, he would serve an additional two years (the remaining two years of the six-year term Jim DeMint was elected to in 2010) and then potentially run again for a full-six year term in 2016.

Comments:
Tim Scott is a good man. This will set the Democrats´ hair on fire. You know how they hate those Tea Partiers. This is the entire article.

#2 is correct. Clyburn will be on the warpath, looking for a black woman to run against Scott. He may even look for another black man (himself?), counting on demographics to defeat Scott.

#8, Clyburn would never try to run in a statewide race. Outside of the low country, Clyburn is hated (and and embarrasment) in SC.
Tim Scott is a great pic. This shows that Niki is worried about the Tea Party support when she gets ready to run for re-eleciton and she better throw the Tea Part a bone.

Watching all the cave ins by Boehner is depressing. Like number 3 I appreciate this piece of excellent news. Now we need another Congressman like Scott....one who has a backbone and remains true to his conservatism.

I am just thrilled to pieces. Was so afraid she was going to pick Jenny Sanford since our newspaper was pushing Jenny. They hate Nikki. Soooo glad, now if the Floridians who cheated and pushed in the unknown candidate could be found out and Allen West´s seat returned to him, all will be great. If not, maybe Fox will give Allen West a job, he is a great communicator. The Dems were determined to take West out because he had called them "communists". They pulled out all the ACORN tactics and it was obvious. Yep, ole Clyburn will have a hissy fit. He is so disliked by regular people, always pressing the "racist" button. Everything is racist to Clyburn, just like Jamie Foxx!! Losers!!

Rep Scott seems like a good man. Not a lot of flash and dash, but a good, solid conservative with the interests of the country at heart.

May God grant him a thick skin and a heart true to those principles that got him this far.

May He grant him the grace of being an effective communicator...so rare on our side.

May God grant him physical protection.

He will sorely need ALL of these as a conservative black U.S. Senator.

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 11:41:34 AM     Post Reply
David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll. "If Eric Cantor´s campaign or any of his affiliates has hired Shaun Kenney’s consulting firm, any pretense of fairness in the upcoming Seventh District Congressional Race is diminished," Brat wrote in a letter to Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPVA). On Monday, a posting by a contributor at the blog Kenney founded, Bearing

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep. Xavier Becerra, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Katie Beirne Fallon, Assistant to the President and Director of Legislative Affairs. Podesta is the founder and chairman of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank funded by wealthy liberal supporters such as George Soros, Peter B. Lewis, Steve Bing, and

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Bloomberg Plans a $50 Million
Challenge to the N.R.A.
New York Times, by Jeremy W. Peters    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 11:02:07 AM     Post Reply
Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

Mom, 44, shot dead ´in front of kids by

A Denver, Colorado mother has been shot dead in front of her children by her ´hallucinating´ while she was on a 13 minute call to 911, police said. Kristine Kirk, 44, called for help around 9:30p.m. Monday, telling dispatchers that her husband Richard Kirk, 47, was ´talking about the end of the world´ and ´scarring´ their three children. A source told FOX31 investigators are looking at whether he had eaten a marijuana cookie. Mrs Kirk said in the 911 call that there was a gun in the house but it was in a safe, according to a probable cause statement. ´She then said

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
