Texas tea party sours on Stockman
Politico, by Katie Glueck

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/23/2014 6:17:21 AM

HOUSTON — It’s the epic GOP primary that wasn’t. Tea party activists hoped to oust Texas Sen. John Cornyn this year in an early-March contest that could have burnished their credibility heading into the midterms. Instead, Cornyn’s best-known challenger, Rep. Steve Stockman, has gone missing on the campaign trail, dogged by unflattering stories about his past and his ethics. It’s a disappointment for many national political watchers who had pulled out the popcorn for this race. Stockman has a penchant for making inflammatory statements — one of his bumper stickers read: “If babies had guns they wouldn’t be aborted.” In December, he

Comments:
Stockman, who was never a serious candidate, managed to suck the media oxygen away from other Cornyn primary challengers who could have made a better case.

Was stockman a plant to do just that-
Suck the energy away from other viable challengers?

A liberal source telling us who the tea party is and what it supports, in addiction to picking its candidates.

So tiring.

Many are so eager for an alternative to Cornyn that they flocked to Stockman in hopes that he was the one. His erratic behavior proves that he is not. The search goes on.

The Texas Tea Party never got on the Stockman bandwagon to begin with. Just another shot at the Tea Party by Political. I´m taking a hard look at Dewayne Stovall. Any one other than John Cornyn especially after his debt ceiling vote to allow the Democrats to continue massive spending. Cornyn has no fight in him to stop the Democrats from continuing their destruction of this country. The ads he is running in Texas make me want to puke.

He waited until the very last minute to announce. I immediately thought flake. Big flake and he is. As much as I question some of Cruz´s tactics, flake is never a word I´d use to describe him. He´s a man of good character, Stockman isn´t. The Tea Party unfortunately is being identified by the poor candidates and not the Cruz, Lee, Rubio types.

My wife and I sent money to and early voted for Dwayne Stovall (texansforstovall.com). Radio host Mark Davis interviewed Stovall and then said that he was GOOD and better than Cornyn.

Does anyone know ANYTHING about Stockman? All we are hearing is a media narrative that shouldn´t be trusted for a second. Does anyone have him for a Congressman? What is he like?

The media keeps saying the Tea Party selected this person, but that is far from clear.

I know the Tea Party is suppose to be grass roots, but it really needs to be better organized so it doesn´t get sabotaged by Dems and establishment Republicans.

Very telling that both parties attack Conservatives more than they attack each other. Thats all I need to know that the Tea Party is at least on the right track.

I have not heard of any group in Texas associated with T.E.A. movement indicated the support of Stockman. Now, Stovall is a different story as I read 23 T.E.A. groups have aligned themselves with Stovall.
The progressive republicans here will still see a battle for the Senate seat. Boots on the ground are much more effective than ads on TV. There are 8 running for the Senate seat so a good possibility of one getting 50% of the vote limited.
# 5 - What tactics are questionable? I applaud all Cruz is doing in making the RINOs expose themselves and not getting away with Lying to their constituents--------which they have been doing.

The point about Stockman was that he himself was claiming to be "Tea Party." That´s the problem. Any crackpot--and Stockman is an uber-crackpot--can claim to be Tea Party, just as any small group of kooks can claim to be a Tea Party.

Of the five candidates primarying Lindsey Graham, four are claiming to be "Tea Party." So who among them is the real deal?

I voted for Stovall in the primary. I see what Cornyn has done to help Obamacare, Arlen Specter, Charlie Christ, etc - he´s been playing games so his ´show vote´ always looks good on the surface but ultimately bites us. Cornyn hopes we are all sleeping, lo-fo voters.

While this rhetoric rocks my socks off it is national disaster. Tea Party education time I hope. Their energy and their ability to pull the party to the right after the election would be great if could be harnessed.

"Stockman has a penchant for making inflammatory statements — one of his bumper stickers read: “If babies had guns they wouldn’t be aborted.” "

Tea party picked loser candidates in Nevada, Virginia (?), New York, Alaska Missouri (Aiken) and even Michelle Backman. Just as with democrats and gun, GOP needs a shut mouth on abortion--especially the absolute end of abortion because the two issues are polarizing. When you mix religious zealotry with politics you get a mixed up mess.IMO

Washington Post, by Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:08:09 PM     Post Reply
It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying.

His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says.

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
