GOP Establishment Uses Democratic
smear tactics to win Mississippi runoff

Washington Times, by Steve Deace

Posted By:mikkins2, 6/25/2014 7:45:35 PM

Consider the words of this Cochran robo-call: “The time has come to take a stand and say no to the tea party. No to their obstruction. No to their disrespectful treatment of the first African-American president. If we do nothing, tea party candidate Chris McDaniel wins and causes even more problems for President Obama. With your help we can stop this. Please commit to voting against tea party candidate Chris McDaniel next Tuesday and say ‘no’ to the tea party!” That’s not a quote from an Al Sharpton race-baiting rant, that’s a robo-call in a Republican primary in perhaps the

Comments:
Cant wait to see how the Republican Establishment and its lackeys try to spin this. Please lecture us again on party unity.

And your still a Republican because......?

Lord Acton´s maxim is absolutely correct. Why should we the people trust either party? Your republican lectures fall on deaf ears. One party is as corrupt as the other one.

Kentucky, are you comfortable with Mitch McConnell?
Do you approve of his tactics and support of the dirt flung in Mississippi? Is this the party of Reagan?
Show Mitch what crossover voting is like, vote democrat in November.

Great article. Thanks for posting! McDaniel should run as a third-party candidate. He´d have a good chance of winning. If not, what´s the diff between Cochran and the Dem? But if he runs as a third party candidate, Cochran would not get the Dem votes in the general election.

I said it before and people didn´t like it, but I´m going to say it again. With these tactics it can officially be said that the Republican Party is in the business of race-baiting during elections. It´s not a party of which I want to be a part.

I used to get angry when I read (often on this site) comments like the above which described the notion of giving up on the GOP and possibly giving victory to the Dems. Don´t get me wrong, I despise every democrat with a purple passion. They are vile scum.

But we have a collection of entrenched republicans who, while not as bad as the Dims, are working against the people who might be able to do something about the vile democrats.

How can we get rid of these entrenched GOP folks? Sad to say, we may have to let the Dims win. In fact, we may have to work to get the Dems to win in strategic seats, like Boehner, Ryan, McCarthy, McConnell, Cochran, McCain (next time), Graham, and Cornyn. (What gives? Are they all Irish names?)

In order to rebuild the GOP, we may have to burn it down.

This is reprehensible. Tell me one reason why any conservative should ever support an establishment candidate. What they have done to keep an old pork pimp from losing his seat is way beyond the pale. Those horrible fliers Cochran distributed were an abomination. The establishment have shown through this whole process that they loath conservatives. Well, this conservative has had it. I am done with the Republican Party.

At this point, it is important that GOP "leaders" like Boehner and McConnell lose their seats if there is to be any hope of refurbishing the GOP without total demolition. If that means voting for the Democrat, so be it. If that means they don´t win the Senate, so be it.

With McConnell as majority leader and Boehner as Speaker, little will be done to stop the progressive juggernaut anyway. There will be plenty of words, lots of tears, but no effective action - only whining that they must now win the WH before they can do anything. They can´t upset the minority voters that now mean everything to them. Enough of their lame excuses for inaction.

We´ve seen in MS and VA that the tactic of crossover voting is just fine with them. Politics is hardball. They should have been careful what they asked for. We can play hardball, too.

But, I have watched with extreme sadness the corrupt implosion of the Republican party and can no longer support it. I will be changing my party affiliation for the next election back to Independent, and stand with my fellow LDotters. If dems get elected, so be it.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked a pro-Thad Cochran Super PAC, called Mississippi Conservatives, to provide additional information about what the newspaper Roll Call said “appears to be campaign finance violations.” At issue are last-minute expenditures made by the PAC in the days before the initial June 3 primary. The FEC “Request for Additional Information” says the PAC does not appear to have disclosed some of its spending in a timely manner. The FEC notes in the letter sent to treasurer Brian Perry that failure to “adequately respond” by Aug. 1 “could result in an audit or enforcement action.”

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, is accusing Senator Thad Cochran´s campaign of violating election laws by giving black Democratic voters cash in exchange for votes in the recent GOP runoff. But mainstream media seem uninterested in the story. The only outlet outside of conservative media covering the story is Forbes magazine. On July 1, the magazine explained what the penalties might be if Fielder´s allegations prove true. "If true," Forbes wrote, "such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1;

Conservative election integrity organization True The Vote filed suit in federal court Tuesday against Mississippi’s Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and the Mississippi Republican Party, asking a judge for an immediate injunction against them so that the election material from the state’s June 24 GOP primary runoff can be inspected. The lawsuit comes as allegations that Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) campaign and his allies engaged in voter fraud to win last Tuesday’s runoff against conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel. Cochran bested McDaniel by fewer than 7,000 votes but did so with an overwhelming turnout from liberal Democrats in the black

The House is no longer requiring lawmakers to report some free trips they take on the annual forms they file about their personal finances. The change was not publicly announced but was described in an instruction book available to lawmakers on how to fill out the forms. Legislators will still have to report details about their travel on the House clerk´s website, which is less commonly monitored by reporters, watchdog groups and others than the financial disclosure reports. That information is publicly available and is far more specific than the one line that -- until now -- they have provided on their

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, has accused Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign of engaging in an illegal and criminal campaign scheme to purchase the votes of black community members. The suspect votes were cast during Cochran’s successful effort to defeat Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Republican primary run-off held last week. If true, such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)), each punishable by a prison

Stevie Fielder, an associate pastor at First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridan, Mississippi, says Cochran´s campaign “told me to offer blacks $15 each and to vote for Thad.” Fielder, who was paid by freelance journalist Charles C.

So what’s with John Boehner’s newfound love of litigation? The speaker announced yesterday that he will ask the House to initiate a lawsuit against the president over his refusal to enforce the laws Congress has passed. That’s something the Wall Street Journal and George Will have both suggested, and it’s not a crazy idea. First, the House likely has standing to bring an action. In 1990 a federal court held that a group of congressmen could not bring an action over George H.W. Bush’s failure to comply with the 1974 War Powers Resolution, but left open whether the House as

A new Gallup poll finds that 41 percent of Americans want immigration levels to decrease than increase; just 22 percent want levels to increase. That’s nearly a two-to-one margin. If you go by party identification, 50 percent of Republicans, 43 percent of independents, and 32 percent of Democrats wish to see the flow of immigrants reduced. As our economic torpor continues under the Obama administration, the sentiments towards the issue of immigration will remain heated. Lydia Saad of Gallup wrote, “Deciding how many new immigrants to welcome each year can be controversial, particularly when unemployment is high, and seeming competition for good jobs

President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt.

"Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges.

Education: As we predicted, the Obama regime´s anti-suspension policy is backfiring. Los Angeles teachers complain unsuspended violent kids are intimidating them and effectively ruling their classrooms. In 2011, the Education Department accused the Los Angeles Unified School District of discriminating against black boys, who were suspended for bad behavior at a disproportionate rate. The agency ordered it to reduce suspensions in the hopes that unruly minority students would stay in school and graduate. "The district shall develop and implement a comprehensive plan to eliminate the disproportionality in the discipline imposed on African-American students," the five-page decree says.
