Cochran presser: Most
entertaining conference call ever

Clarion Ledger [Jackson, MS], by Sam R. Hall

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/3/2014 9:40:55 AM

A conference call set up by the campaign for U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran devolved into a shouting match and then ended, after which time supporters of GOP primary challenger Chris McDaniel chatted for a bit. California-based blogger Charles C. Johnson posted the call-in number on Twitter and encouraged people to call in and crash the call. He succeeded. Cochran campaign advisor Austin Barbour started the conference call normally. After a few minutes of talking about working with McDaniel volunteers in the Hinds County courthouse reviewing ballots and how the campaign set up its GOTV effort, an unidentified male started asking

There is audio. Isn´t Johnson the one who paid the "reverend"?

FTA, "Two people on the call who identified themselves later as McDaniel supporters said it was not Johnson. (Based on hearing Johnson talking before the call started, it did not sound like him at all. And if my guess is right, it´s a well known racist who is still stuck on the 2001 flag vote.)"

Racist crank crashing the call pretending to be a McDaniel supporter spouting "harvesting cotton and black votes". Thanks for nothing, idiot. The liberal media will now paint the McDaniel supporters as racist fools.

Johnson paid the ´reverend´. He does himself no good encouraging people to crash the presser. Cochran´s stooges look like cowards hiding behind a conference call. Go out and explain yourselves in public for all to see. The fraudulent vote count is growing, they must be getting nervous.

Does anyone else have the feeling, like a bad toothache, that Thad Cochran is going to get steamrolled in the general election? 120% of the black vote will go to the Democrat and many of the disenchanted Tea Party folks will not cast a vote in this particular race. Thad´s been had ... and he still doesn´t realize it.

None of this nonsense would have happened if only the GOP Elites had thanked Thad Cochran for his (many) years of service and embraced the winner of their primary. Whatever flaws McDaniels possesses, they are minuscule compared to the idiocy of the Rove et al. brand.

Yet perhaps some good will come of this. Folks who formerly supported the GOP as an (albeit lame) alternative to the Dem/Prog/Libs must now see that a vote for Anybody (R) is just not a smart solution. The Establishment has been fully outed and this at least is a good start.

The first description of this I read had actual quotes from the guy who trolled Barbour. His questions weren´t racist, by my read. He was pointing out the inherent racism in harvesting black votes and taking advantage of them. Somewhat inarticulately, I would say, but I got his point. Of course, the questioner is the one being portrayed as racist, not the Cochran supporters who used racism to ´´win´´ the election.

Senate GOP charts

Washington Examiner [DC], by David M. Drucker    Original Article

Senate Republicans are planning aggressive action to intensify oversight of the Obama administration and move conservative legislation long stymied by the Democrats if they win control of the upper chamber in the midterm elections. Republican leaders are promising a complete makeover of the chamber that goes beyond changes in legislative priorities, according to knowledgeable GOP sources. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, expected to become the next majority leader as long as he wins re-election on Nov. 4, plans to return power to the committees and promote a freewheeling debate process that allows members to shape legislation through a vigorous

‘Hate Speech’: the Left’s
Term for ‘Opposing Viewpoints’

Last week, a mass email went out at Yale University (my alma mater) protesting an upcoming visit from Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a political activist and staunch critic of Islam. The subject line reads, “Dear Friends: More Speech, Not Hate Speech.” The email reveals that by “hate speech,” the writers mean what the Left usually means when they use that term: “opinions we don’t agree with.” Thirty-two student organizations signed the email under the leadership of Yale’s Muslim Student Association (MSA). That’s a revised number after the MSA was forced to reveal that its original list of 36 organizations was falsified. So,

Scotland vote: Winners and losers

LONDON -- Who won and who lost in Scotland´s independence referendum? WINNERS: The 55.3 percent of Scottish voters who wanted to stay in the United Kingdom. LOSERS: The 44.7 percent who disagreed. WINNER: Gordon Brown. The former prime minister broke out of what seemed to be a long sulk since losing the 2010 election, and delivered a barnstorming defense of the United Kingdom which gave the No campaign some badly needed energy in the final days. LOSER: Alex Salmond. The leader of the Scottish National Party, which exists mainly to pursue independence, went down fighting for what he called a once-in-a-lifetime chance to

Two U.S. jets intercepted six Russian planes that neared U.S. airspace off Alaska on Thursday and Canadian planes intercepted two Russian bombers that approached Canadian airspace, NORAD reported. A U.S. official told CNN´s Barbara Starr that officials in Washington think the incidents were related to the visit by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, who talked to Canadian officials Wednesday and President Barack Obama on Thursday. The United States promised Ukraine $46 million in nonlethal aid for its battle with pro-Russian militants. The Russian aircraft flew within about 55 nautical miles of the Alaskan coastline and about 40 nautical miles of the Canadian coastline,

NEW DELHI -- At first glance, it looks like a diplomatic love-fest. There was Chinese President Xi Jinping, toasting the birthday of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a quiet dinner earlier this week in Modi´s home state. There were the two leaders, deep in conversation as they walked along the Sabarmati River, Xi dressed in a Nehru jacket. The men are full of praise for one another, and one another´s countries. Xi gushes over India as "an enchanting and beautiful land." Modi declares that their pledges to work together "will open big gates for progress and development in the world."

If you missed Mark Sanford´s tortured, meandering Facebook post about his various relationship and family troubles last weekend, I´m afraid you´re out of luck. The Republican Party´s Lord Byron apparently thought better of it and decided to take the post down. Maybe Sanford´s sons impressed upon him that he had become the single most embarrassing parent in America. Or maybe the South Carolina congressman suddenly realized that he wasn´t actually 15 and was under no compulsion to vent his conflicted emotions on social media. (If I knew how to do it, I´d insert a little "unamused" emoji face here.) Or perhaps Sanford

Baton Rouge, Louisiana -- It´s Sunday morning at the New Life Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but the man preaching to the choir is no minister. "My God is not finished with me yet," he tells the congregation. The man speaking is Edwin W. Edwards -- ex-four-term Louisiana governor, ex-four-term congressman and ex-con. "I may be old and rancid butter, but I´m on your side of the bread," he proclaims from the altar. Unrepentant and unapologetic, Edwards is in church not looking for forgiveness. The 87-year-old is looking for votes. After almost nine years in prison, the flamboyant showman

WASHINGTON -- The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) may be dominating the headlines and stealing attention with its prolific propaganda, but CBS News´ Bob Orr reports, another group in Syria -- one few have even heard of because information about it has been kept secret -- is considered a more urgent concern. Sources tell CBS News that operatives and explosives experts from Osama bin Laden´s old al Qaeda network may again present an immediate threat to the U.S. homeland. At two dozen foreign airports, U.S.-bound passengers are undergoing enhanced security screening. Agents are searching for hidden explosives. Laptops

Scots Reject Independence in Historic Vote

EDINBURGH, Scotland - Scottish voters have resoundingly rejected independence, deciding to remain part of the United Kingdom after a historic referendum that shook the country to its core. The decision prevented the rupture of a 307-year union with England, bringing a huge sigh of relief to Britain´s political establishment, including Prime Minister David Cameron, who faced calls for his resignation if Scotland had broken away. The vote on Thursday - 55 percent against independence to 45 percent in favor - saw an unprecedented turnout of just under 85 percent. A majority of voters did not embrace Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond´s impassioned plea

Obamacare´s Next Open Enrollment Starts
In Two Months - And It Will Be Awful
Forbes, by John R. Graham    Original Article

If there is one thing that the Administration and Democratic candidates have in their favor going into the mid-term elections, it is that election day is November 4, and Obamacare’s second open enrollment begins on November 15. If the dates were flipped, there is little doubt that voters affected by Obamacare would wreak havoc on the politicians who imposed the Rube Goldberg contraption of exchanges on them. Despite having just tossed another $60 million out the window “to help consumers navigate their health care coverage options in the Health Insurance Marketplace,” the Administration will likely face an even more bemused and

It’s official. Jimmy Carter is no longer the worst president in American history. The crown of shame has been passed from the former peanut farmer to our weak, lead-from-behind community organizer, whose lack of foreign policy experience and gravitas has come into full embarrassing display. And with ISIS on the march — and now threatening to assassinate Pope Francis — President Obama’s abysmal approval ratings have Democrats ducking for cover. A CBS News/New York Times poll released yesterday — which shows approval ratings for Obama’s foreign policy at a record low 34 percent, with a whopping 58 percent disapproving — delivered a

Giants quarterback Eli Manning mixed disgust Wednesday with a plea for NFL players to put an end to domestic violence for the good of children like Adrian Peterson’s beaten son and the league as a whole. “You hate to see a child being hurt. . . . You don’t like seeing those things or hearing about ’em,” Manning said to reporters. “Try to go home and hug your own children. It makes you want to hopefully not put them in harm’s way,” said Manning, who has two small girls, ages 1 and 3, with his wife, Abby. “We can’t accept that as players.

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from Aug. 23 through Sept. 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.The urge to sever ties with Washington cuts across party lines and regions, though Republicans and residents of rural Western
