Media Silent on Allegations that
Cochran Campaign Engaged
in Cash-For-Votes Scheme

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 7/2/2014 1:58:20 PM

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;

Comments:
The media along with the Republican Establishment can wish this travesty away, but it is not going to go away, nor is it going away unanswered.

The Republican Establishment holds the answer to party unity, but their idea is to just demanding it from the people they have smeared the reputations of. This is no where near the right answer.

Got Revolution?

Remember Mississippi!

True To Vote emailed one of their followers that 4,000 Irregular/Illegal crossover votes have been found and they have hit the Delta Area or looked at the absentee ballots.

Absentee ballots were in greater number for the runoff than for the primary.......wonder what those results will show when examined.

This is so disgusting and is obviously aginst the law. The hubris of establishment Republicans is breathtaking. Vote buying? Really? The media is totally ignoring this but I am not surprised. There is a war in this country against conservative thought and Democrats, Republicans and the media are fully engaged. This debacle in Mississippi, however, is the worst example of political chicanery I have ever witnessed. It doesn´t get worse than vote buying and those horrific racist ads.

#2. It is the worst because it is the only one being covered by anyone. It has been going on in all 50 states for a long time. The only difference is now we have the internet. People all over can follow along and communicate with each other. Lies get called out, facts trump lies.

I am not worrying about the media and I am not worrying about Cochran (he´s going to lose)....but what I AM going to do is make it clear to my Republican Party that IF they do not limit primary voting to Registered Republicans, then I am joining a third party.

Anyone else feel that this is essential ? It IS !!! Absolutely ridiclous to let Democrats swing the primary voting. Stupid. I don´t need any more stupid people to represent me.

There is absolutely NO sensible reason for crossover voting in a primary race. Why should you allow voters from the opposing party to help pick your candidate? Utterly stupid. And I never heard of Republican voters voting in a Dem. primary in any significant numbers to make any difference. This practice must be stopped!

The bamboozle curtain shielding we the citizens from the truth is beginning to slide open: Most of us have lived under the illusion, the republicans are spineless, cowardly wimps, cowering in the shadows from the onslaughts coming from democrats, and their media minions. Now, that doesn´t seem to be the case.

It appears more likely the republicans (from a point dating further back than Senator Trent Lott´s sharing of his leadership role with the democrats), are participating members of a secret cabal, which includes themselves, democrats, and the MSM, to form an onerous ruling class over a once free American citizenry.

#7, many states have no party registration. Texas doesn´t. But, when I vote in a Texas GOP primary, my registration card is stamped. I cannot then vote in a Dem runoff. I don´t see anything wrong with that process.

Maybe because " Reverend " Fielder
turns out to be a known scam artist ?
Not employed at the church where he claimed to be an Associate Pastor...because he´s not a real pastor.
Just someone who calls himself a pastor.
And the Cochran campaign explained how they pay their GOTV volunteers.
This was a GOTV activity , not voting .
Fielder only got $300 for driving volunteers ,
after that he quit.
Oh and he was arrested and charged with fraud in 2006 for some home remodeling scam.
The guy is just not credible .
The whole thing just doesn´t pass the smell test.

agree with #11 and state once more that
limiting a voters right to choose a party or how to cast a legal ballot is a violation of voting laws.
Anyone caught voting illegally should be fined.
If the votes exceed the eligible voting population the party with the excess votes should automatically be nullified and declared losers.

Justin Amash´s support for free

Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has jumped into a Republican congressional primary in Michigan, trying to defeat incumbent Rep. Justin Amash. Amash´s crime: being stubbornly consistent in opposing big government. The Chamber´s endorsement of Amash´s opponent helps clarify some things that have long been true, but which have been muddled in the public eye and used against conservatives. The first myth put to rest: Libertarianism and free enterprise are defenses of Big Business. The second myth exposed: Challenging an incumbent in a primary is somehow impious or unsporting. Amash is arguably the strongest defender of free enterprise in the House. His rating from the

Washington Examiner columnist David Limbaugh had a column Thursday that deserves careful and thoughtful reading, especially by those to whom it is mainly addressed. What if the GOP wins the White House and Congress in 2016? What then, GOP, Limbaugh asks. "I would wager that many of my Establishment friends will continue to advise restraint, urging us not to drastically roll back Obama´s liberal policies, either because they´ll be horrified about the next election or because they have really, in the end, lost their stomach for political battle and their taste for free market principles," Limbaugh writes.

I don´t think Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against President Obama right now, but I also don´t think that considering the idea is "crazy talk." The man has, in my view and that of many others, committed multitudinous impeachable offenses, and we need to strenuously object and bring it to the public´s attention every chance we get. The idea of turning our heads and looking the other way is repugnant. Yes, the elections are too close for Republicans to risk impeachment proceedings at this point, unless it became clear that the majority of Americans have the political will for that

Republican lobbyist warns conservatives:
´Big Business´ might ´change sides´

Some Republicans are beginning to extend their free-market, limited-government beliefs to include opposition to corporate welfare, like the Export-Import Bank. Many conservatives hate the idea of centralized education standards driven by a coalition of unaccountable bureaucrats and big business. K Street lobbyist and former GOP congressional aide John Feehery warns that this is a dangerous for the Right to walk, asking: What would happen if Big Business decided to change sides? What would happen if the Chamber of Commerce suddenly stopped being a huge fundraising machine for the Republican Party and started financing pro-business Democrats?

Rep: Boehner Border Bill Includes

A border security proposal from Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) that has already prompted fierce criticism on the right is included in the forthcoming proposal from a working group of lawmakers appointed by Speaker John Boehner, according to Rep. John Carter (R-TX), a member of the group. “On the issue of border security, their bill has the McCaul´s border security bill in it,” Carter told Breitbart News in an interview, adding that it would also deploy the National Guard to the border. The inclusion of the McCaul bill is likely to prompt conflict between Boehner and immigration hard-liners. The main criticism of the McCaul

The Netflix documentary Mitt ought to be required viewing for American voters, and particularly the low-information types who cast their ballots for Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election. Mitt chronicles the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns of former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, and in it one can see the effects a long and grueling presidential campaign can have on a candidate and his family. One can also see the chasm between who a man really is and what he’s portrayed to be by his political opponents and the media. The Romney in Mitt is a man America would happily choose as its president:

Yesterday, I ran a short post that quoted a June 4th Washington Post story on the role of Karl Rove’s American Crossroads in the Mississippi Senate runoff. The Post reported: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night. […] “Other than Alaska, we have completed our work on Senate primaries this cycle and are now focused on general elections. With the Chamber, the NRSC, and

Fending off persistent questions about his residency status, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) noted in a radio interview last week that “my kids went to school” in Dodge City, Kansas, as a means of demonstrating his ties to the state he represents roughly 1,400 miles away in Washington, D.C. But a close inspection of that claim shows his children only attended school there for about three months, and attended and graduated from high school in Alexandria, Virginia, although they later attended college in Kansas. “We have declared Dodge [City] our residency; our kids went to school there.

A Democrat-backed super PAC called Maine Forward has committed to spending $2 million against Republican Gov. Paul LePage and for Democratic nominee Mike Michaud in the run-up to the Pine Tree State´s elections this fall, according to the Bangor Daily News. LePage is a top target for the Democratic Governors Association, and a report published in Talking Points Memo that he discussed executing Democrats in a meeting with a sovereign citizen group called the Aroostook Watchmen have only burnished their hopes. LePage said that execution was not a discussion item in the meetings. But regardless, the news didn’t do him

Back in 2012, I shared a sadly amusing image about how the modern political process has degenerated into two wolves and a sheep voting what to have for lunch. I was making an argument in that column against majoritarianism (and that is a critical issue, as explained in this video), but there’s also a very mportant moral component to this debate. Walter Williams addresses this issue in his latest column. He starts by asking a hypothetical question. Suppose I saw a homeless, hungry elderly woman huddled on a heating grate in the dead of winter. To help the woman, I ask somebody for

Some truths CNN reveals only accidentally. One such truth Anderson Cooper shared on the night of July 17. In speaking about the shoot down of Malaysian airliner MH 17 earlier that day, Cooper referred back to “July 17, 1996, when TWA Flight 800 was shot down off the coast of Long Island in New York.” (snip)wo days earlier, Cooper hosted a CNN special report on the subject, “Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800.” To understand the depth of media-government complicity, it is useful to compare “Witnessed” with two prior videos.

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wasn’t out to make news when he addressed the annual conference of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and devoted most of his 50-minute speech to the Magna Carta, which turns 800 years old in 2015. But Kennedy did let on that he doesn’t belong to the school of Constitution-worshipers who base their legal doctrines on what they glean to be the original, literal meaning of every word and phrase in the nation’s founding document.

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G. Lerner’s computer memory had been wiped clean, the agency put out word to contractors Monday that it needs help to destroy at least another 3,200 hard drives. The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight. Congressional investigators of the IRS targeting of conservative groups have been hampered by the unexplained destruction of emails and other records of Ms. Lerner,

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

When President Obama wraps up his 16-day summer break next month on Martha´s Vineyard, Mass., he will have taken all or part of 141 days of vacation, time split between summers on the island, winters in his native Hawaii and birthday weekends at his Chicago home. Obama has been criticized for taking costly and lengthy vacations, especially compared to the short trips most Americans take. The U.S. Travel Association told Secrets that the average American vacation lasts just 3.7 days. But his 141 days out of Washington are far less than the 378 former President George W. Bush took in
