Mitch McConnell Promises More Abortion
Restrictions If GOP Wins Back Senate

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/1/2014 9:35:07 PM

If Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wins reelection this fall and Republicans take back the Senate from Democrats, he will likely become Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The senator reminded potential voters of this fact over the weekend when he spoke at the National Right to Life Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. “I’m proud of my record and defense of life. If I was majority leader, we’d already have had a vote on it in the Senate,” McConnell said, referring to legislation on abortion rights. “It’s long past time for us to join the ranks of most other civilized nations to

Comments:
That´s all well and good, but I would much rather he promised more restrictions on Barack Hussein Obama. And restrictions on the illegals flooding into this country, and that´s just a start! They never get their priorities in the right order!

This is how the GOP loses elections...focus on abortion and forget all the more important things like corruption, radical leftist takeover, the abuse of federal government power, illegal immigration, fiscal irresponsibility, etc., etc., etc. Yeah, pick the ONE topic that turns a lot of people off...really smart--NOT!

The economy contracted 3%, Middle East in Flames, Scandal, scandal everywhere. Abortion clinics being closed across much of the country so lets pick a fight over abortion.

The Establishment is either stupid or trying to sabotage the election. Shut up Mitch.

Hollywood starlets are at this moment likely putting together commercials for Alison Lundergan Grimes. McConnell might´ve just crushed himself. This issue is the easiest way for democrats to win. In Virginia in 2013 a bunch of GOP E flipped en masse and supported Terry McAuliffe for Gov. over Ken Cuccinelli citing Cuccinelli´s view on abortion as the main reason he had to be defeated. The Kentucky airwaves will be filled with ads saying McConnell will end abortion for women. Even if it´s not the case that´s what the ads will say.

The Stupid Party strikes again. Turtle man just wants to snatch defeat right out of the jaw of victory.

But we should hold our collective noses and vote republican because he would be a better "scheduler" than Harry Reid? Don´t think so...

Basically, abortion is a 50-50 proposition in this country. However, at election time, the left and the press make it seem like a 90-10 proposition and kill off republicans handily.

This is not about abortion at all, folks. This is an attempt to stanch the flow from the gaping wound the Republican Party has given itself. Senator McConnell hopes that he can throw a bone to the conservatives and bring them back.

If Uncle Fuddy has a large office, he might want to start packing up a little ahead of time because I don´t think he´s going to need it next session. An interview I heard yesterday was talking about all the fortunes made by the long time politicians via weapons sales and gun running. No wonder they fight like the devil to maintain their seats.

If you thought last winter was bad, get ready for a potentially worse winter in parts of the country this year. But another record-setting winter could mean more than higher heating bills and snow fights. Harsh winter weather combined with coal-fired power plant closings could spell trouble for many households across the country who will desperately need to keep the lights and heat on this winter. Joe Bastardi, chief meteorologist at WeatherBELL Analytics, told the Wall Street Journal Live that current weather patterns are “flowing along right now into the type of El Niño situation that is notorious for giving the United

Al Gore Sues Al Jazeera for Withholding
Money From Sale of Current TV

Current TV co-founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt have launched a fraud and breach-of-contract lawsuit claiming that Al Jazeera is withholding money from its $500 million purchase of the cable news network. (Snip) "Al Jazeera America wants to give itself a discount on the purchase price that was agreed to nearly two years ago," says Boies in a statement. "We are asking the Court to order Al Jazeera America to stop wrongfully withholding the escrow funds that belong to Current´s former shareholders."

A federal agency is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to support film festivals that showcase movies that some Americans might find offensive. Decapitated heads, public urination and sexual promiscuity are among the subjects explored on the big screen of events underwritten with U.S. taxpayers’ money. The National Endowment for the Arts directly funded at least 39 film festivals last fiscal year at a cost to taxpayers of $845,000. That doesn’t include the dozens of other festivals funded by federal dollars funneled through state and local arts agencies. Among the films featured at taxpayer-subsidized film festivals were “Wawd Ahp,”

LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles is considering turning voting ballots into lottery tickets. With fewer than a fourth of voters showing up for recent local elections, the city´s Ethics Commission voted unanimously Thursday to recommend that the City Council consider a cash-prize drawing as an incentive to vote. Commission President Nathan Hochman suggests the prizes could be $25,000 or $50,000, saying a pilot program should be used first to find out the number and size of prizes that would bump up turnout. The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/1uV1Ekw) that federal law prohibits payment for voting, but Ethics Commissioner Jessica Levinson says that statute

WILMINGTON, Del. -- Former Vice President Al Gore is suing Al Jazeera, saying it´s withholding money promised from sale of Current TV. Al Jazeera purchased Current TV, its broadcast contracts and subcribers in January 2013 for over $500 million. The acquisition of Current TV, co-founded by Gore in 2005, allowed Al Jazeera to air Al Jazeera America in 43 million homes across the U.S. Since its launch, the cable news network has drawn praise for its ability to break stories objectively and its willingness to cover issues while willfully ignoring the spin of talking points and sound-bites.

Why Is Harvey Weinstein Backing Pro-Life,
Anti-Nanny State Film ´The Giver´

Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/15/2014 1:00:46 PM     Post Reply
The Giver offers a pro-life message as well as a warning of what nanny state policies could lead. So why is Harvey Weinstein, one of Hollywood’s most prominent liberals, teaming up with Walden Media to bring Lois Lowry´s story to movie houses? The Giver producer Chip Flaherty says Lowry’s tale represents a cultural moment when both the left and the right can join together. The film’s dystopian future may pack conservative messages, but it also pays tribute to passion, creativity and the messy business of personal freedom. Flaherty recalls how Weinstein, out promoting the film earlier this week, told talk radio star Laura

Top Senate Democrats who once egged on President Barack Obama to go big on executive amnesty are now punting on the issue after numerous polls have shown that illegal immigration could cost Democrats control of the Senate. Politico asked the offices of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Michael Bennet (D-CO), the chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign, about Obama´s potential executive amnesty for millions more illegal immigrants. They all either refused to answer or said the ball was in Obama´s court. Durbin and Schumer were in the "Gang of

With wars raging in the Middle East, and Russia still threatening Ukraine, the problem of anti-Americanism in Latin America has been put on the back burner. But since Secretary of State John Kerry declared last year that the Monroe Doctrine was dead, Vladimir Putin of Russia has traveled to Brazil, Argentina, Nicaragua and Cuba. This doesn’t seem like an accident. The Obama administration is inviting aggression against the U.S. During the Cold War, Cuba hosted Soviet nuclear missiles targeting the U.S., and the Castro regime sponsored terrorism on American soil carried out by

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. That word comes from the attorney for Dorian Johnson, speaking to MSNBC. Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

President Obama said Thursday that “now is the time for healing” after a series of clashes between protesters and police over the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., but he also called for an open and transparent investigation “to see that justice is done” in the case. Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where he is on vacation, Obama said that many Americans “have been deeply disturbed” by images of violence in the St. Louis suburb following the police shooting Saturday afternoon of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week. “When something like

Washington - Defense Department officials said late Wednesday that United States airstrikes and Kurdish fighters had broken the Islamic militants’ siege of Mount Sinjar, allowing thousands of the Yazidis trapped there to escape. An initial report from about a dozen Marines and Special Operations forces who arrived on Tuesday and spent 24 hours on the northern Iraqi mountain said that “the situation is much more manageable,” a senior Defense official said in an interview. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, speaking to reporters Wednesday night at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., said it was “far less likely now” that the United States

Shocking accounts of medieval brutality — including video of kneeling Iraqis being gunned down, a Twitter image of a young jihadist holding a severed head and threats by ISIS to take its savagery to the White House — have prompted desperate calls for the international community to stop the fanatical Islamic group. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon this week joined Pope Francis, Egypt´s top cleric and several world leaders in condemning the terrorist group, which now calls itself Islamic State and has carved out a caliphate, or nation of strict Sharia law, in northern Iraq and Syria.

California lawmakers are poised to enact a regulation requiring every college and university that receives public funding to define consensual sex in a way that attempts to micro-manage everyone’s sexual affairs. The first-in-the-nation legislation already passed California’s state Senate by a vote of 27-4 in May, The Associated Press reports. If the bill passes the assembly this month, it will then go to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill, which is based on guidance from the Obama administration, requires an “affirmative consent standard” that school administrators would use to determine whether a sexual assault has occurred. The standard would define
