Anti-incumbent sentiment
strongest in 20 years

American Thinker, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 5/14/2014 6:51:13 PM

A new Gallup poll shows that congressional incumbents should worry about re-election - at least a little bit. More than 70% in the poll say that incumbents don´t deserve re-election while only 22% say they do. This represents the lowest percentage of voters who believe incumbents should be returned to Washington in more than 20 years. Politico: According to the Gallup survey, only 22 percent of registered voters believe that most members of Congress deserve reelection and 72 percent believe they don’t. If the results hold in November, the “deserve re-election” figure will be the lowest mark since Gallup began tracking the question

Thanks to the internet and Google, people now can see these people for the frauds they are and this is the result.

If you keep sending somebody back to DC for 40 years, you are the problem.

They have lost their ambition for anything but lining their own pockets.

Panic for GOP Establishment as
Kashkari is Distant 3rd in New Poll
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Joel B. Pollak    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 5/30/2014 2:55:59 PM     Post Reply
Neel Kashkari swings an axe in his ubiquitous television commercial. But he hasn´t found an axe big enough to cut into Tim Donnelly´s lead among Republican voters. A new Hoover Institution "Golden State" poll shows that Kashkari is only pulling 5% of the vote, barely above the 4% margin of error, a distant third behind popular Democrat incumbent Gov. Jerry Brown at 36%, and Tea Party favorite Assemblyman Tim Donnelly with 12%. A large chunk of voters--35% overall--is still undecided. Kashkari will need to tap into those voters in the final few days of the race in order to finish

HATTIESBURG, Mississippi — Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) provided a new explanation for his refusal to debate his primary challenger that is sure to give fodder to critics who say that after six terms he feels entitled to his seat. (SNIP) First, he and his campaign would not respond when asked why they won’t debate. Second, in late April, Cochran told the Associated Press he won’t debate McDaniel because “he’s trying to make me look bad.” Third, in mid-May, Cochran spokesman Jordan Russell told reporters—while appearing in Cochran’s place at a press conference that McDaniel had on the Mississippi State Capitol

The conservative cable-news family is about to get a new member. On Thursday, Newsmax Media Inc. announced that it will kick off its new network next month, Newsmax TV, following a recent distribution deal with DirecTV. The mid-June soft launch, as described by CEO Christopher Ruddy, is expected to reach more than 20 million DirecTV subscribers, and hopes to build off of that launch to reach 40 percent of homes with cable or satellite by the end of the year. The channel will aim to attract the “Baby Boomers” generation. “Newsmax was born online and as the lines between TV and the

Since the beginning of his speakership, John Boehner has been trying to find a middle ground between his conservative flank in the form of the Tea Party and the GOP´s more moderate faction. Boehner has become known for an unusual style of leadership, described as hands-off and willing to let the groups fight. A new story from Politico, however, indicates that his method might be changing. Back in 2012, Boehner faced a very rowdy and heated caucus when it came to his re-election as speaker of the House. Nine Republicans voted for someone else while Congressman Steve Stockman voted present.

A new four-page mailer savagely attacking GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly is being funded by billionaire Charles Munger, Jr., one of the children of Charles Munger, the vice-chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. The mailer, headlined, “An Urgent Warning from Gov. Pete Wilson about Candidate Tim Donnelly!” lists various reasons for opposing Donnelly: Donnelly’s probation status for taking a loaded gun to Ontario Airport. Donnelly said later he was unaware that the gun was in his bag Rep.

SOUTHAVEN, Mississippi -- Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) pulled the old “bait-and-switch” to avoid a televised CNN interview, reporter Dana Bash says. Bash tried to interview Cochran for CNN at a Memorial Day event in Vicksburg, MS, but Cochran dodged the interview. His staff was “going to head-scratching extremes to avoid talking,” Bash reported in a piece posted late Tuesday. "We tried to catch Cochran after this event," Bash said, while video of Cochran standing on stage for the event played. "But when an aide came out and saw us, they did a bait-and-switch.” "The car they told us Cochran was getting in, screeched

With the 2014 congressional primary season almost behind us, the conventional wisdom has hardened: The Republican establishment has vanquished its Tea Party tormentors. The progressive response to that narrative — that the establishment only “won” by capitulating to the Tea Party — is hardening, too. I want to challenge that a little. When North Carolina State Sen. Thom Tillis won the GOP Senate nomination in early May, it seemed ridiculous to claim the Tea Party had been defeated, though he technically had a Tea Party rival: Tillis was as extreme as his opponent, supporting personhood legislation and tax cuts for

He´s been a senator for only 16 months, but Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has created such a sensation among conservatives, Tea Party members and strict Constitutionalists that he is now poised to be among the top of 2016 GOP presidential candidates, according to a new poll. The engaging senator “could have an edge in the primaries as he is seen as one of the most conservative GOP politicians around,” said the Economist/YouGov.com poll. He is also viewed as honest and outspoken. And in a sign of his growing popularity among conservatives, 36 percent of Republicans want him to run for president.

The European ruling class might have gotten their first glimpse at pitchforks and torches over the weekend when anti-EU parties made gains across the continent. That doesn’t mean the European Parliament is being quickly ushered to the guillotine; but the anti-EU victories can’t possibly be a comforting sight to the bureaucrats who have run Europe’s economy for the last decade. From Scotland to Greece, citizens seem to be growing increasingly weary of the European experiment. A Margaret Thatcher renaissance seems to have swept Europe over the weekend.

The Perplexing Durability of
Keynesian Economics

Keynesian economics is a failure. It didn’t work for Hoover and Roosevelt in the 1930s. It didn’t work for Japan in the 1990s. And it didn’t work for Bush or Obama in recent years. No matter where’s it’s been tried, it’s been a flop. So why, whenever there’s a downturn, do politicians resuscitate the idea that bigger government will “stimulate” the economy? I’ve tried to answer that question. Keynesian economics is the perpetual motion machine of the left. You build a model that assumes government spending is good for the economy and you assume that there are zero costs when the government diverts money from

Banks are breathing a sigh of relief after established GOP incumbents bested a handful of Tea Party challengers at the polls recently. Industry sources said the establishment wins improve Republican odds of retaking the Senate, which would in turn lead to a friendlier climate for the long-beleaguered sector. But some note that the Tea Party has left a mark on the Republican Party, presenting a challenging landscape for the industry. The Tea Party movement can trace its roots back to fury about bailouts and banks, but the force that pulled the Republican Party right in recent years is finding less success at

Black Beach Week used to get all the glory: Every Memorial Day weekend, 300,000 black people gathered in Miami Beach to get their freak on. And also create a tsunami of violence, robbery, shootings, carjackings, vandalism, mayhem, noise and trash. But this year, many party-goers complained that Black Beach Week -- only reporters call it “Urban Beach Week” -- just wasn’t as much fun any more: Too many cops, tactical vehicles, helicopters, lights, towers, cameras, suspicion. Not enough chaos. Not to worry: The rest of the country picked up the slack. Black mob violence over the holiday weekend was reported in more

Maya Angelou, an author more revered than read, passed away at 86 on Wednesday. She is survived by her seven autobiographies. In addition to Angelou playing Boswell to Angelou’s Johnson, Angelou acted, wrote poetry, danced, and sang. Was she an actress, poet, dancer, or singer? People liked her politics, and, out of ideological solidarity, reflexively praised her talents in multitudinous endeavors. At her most irresponsible, she embraced Fidel Castro, Malcolm X, and Bill Clinton—a mistake for a lady of any age. (Snip) In this spirit, she insisted that others call her “Dr. Angelou” though she never obtained a college degree. The

President Obama said Thursday that he may have suffered from mild concussions while playing football in his childhood. "When I was young and played football briefly, there were a couple times where I´m sure that that ringing sensation in my head and the needing to sit down for a while might have been a mild concussion, and at the time you didn´t think anything of it," Obama said at a White House event designed to highlight the risks of sports-related brain injuries. Obama said his experience was common and underscored the need to "change the culture" around concussion injuries in sports,

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki was openly mocked by the assembled press corps Thursday after saying President Obama “doesn’t give himself enough credit for what he’s done around the world.” Associated Press reporter Matt Lee asked sarcastically whether he deserved 200 percent credit, while another one wondered for what “accomplishments” Psaki meant he deserves more praise. “For engagement initiatives like Iran, what we’ve done on Ukraine, efforts to dive in and engage around the world,” she said. “I mean, Russia has still annexed Crimea,” another reporter asked. “I mean, Iran — there’s ongoing negotiations,

DENVER— Colorado´s Civil Rights Commission on Friday ordered a baker to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples, finding his religious objections to the practice did not trump the state´s anti-discrimination statutes. The unanimous ruling from the seven-member commission upheld an administrative law judge´s finding in December that Jack Phillips violated civil rights law when he refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in 2012. The couple sued. "I can believe anything I want, but if I´m going to do business here, I´d ought to not discriminate against people," Commissioner Raju Jaram said. Phillips, a devout Christian who

Aides said Mr. Obama will review with his Cabinet Friday a report from a White House task force on his program called “My Brother’s Keeper,” which he launched in February. “It is important that all children have caring adults who are engaged in their lives,” the report states. “But too many young people lack this support.

Distinguished former CIA officer and author Robert Baer said on the BBC’s “Today” radio program Thursday morning that ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden has been in contact with the Russian government for the last seven years. “My suspicion is that the Russians were probably in touch with him in Geneva,” Baer said, speculating they first made contact in 2007 while Snowden was stationed in Switzerland with CIA. “I can’t prove it. But this was such a brilliant operation. And his landing in Moscow just makes old Cold War warriors like me very suspicious.” Baer also dismissed Snowden’s assertion on his first U.S. television

Lihue, Hawaii - A judge sentenced a Hawaii man to one year of probation and a $200 fine for making his son walk a mile home from school as a form of discipline. Judge Kathleen Watanabe called the punishment "old-school" and no longer appropriate, the Garden Island newspaper reported Thursday. Robert Demond of Kilauea said he picked up his son from school and asked about a matter that had been brought to his attention. When the son didn´t respond, Demond made him walk home to think about his actions. The age of the boy is unclear. Demond's attorney and a prosecutor didn't immediately respond to a request seeking
