Meet Sean Haugh, the Libertarian
pizza guy who may deliver a
Senate seat in N.C.

Washington Post, by Karen Tumulty & Reid Wilson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/7/2014 11:49:19 AM

RALEIGH, N.C. — Most evenings, Sean Haugh is a pizza deliveryman. But every other week or so, the Libertarian Party’s Senate nominee in North Carolina opens a few craft beers on the counter of the bar in his campaign manager’s basement. He takes deep gulps from a pint glass bearing an image of Austrian-school economist Mur­ray Rothbard and expresses his Everyman frustrations with the current political system into a video camera. So far, Haugh’s campaign barely exists anywhere but on YouTube. But it is doing surprisingly well in a high-stakes Senate contest in which candidates and outside groups have already

This is the Post´s attempt to give Haugh the free publicity he needs to "deliver the seat" to the Democrats.

As I said in another thread, a vote for Haugh is a vote against the corrupt republican establishment which exposed itself in MS. The biggest obstacle to 2016 is that the Reagan Democrats will NEVER support the party of crony capitalism which is todays republican party. The CoC is not the friend of conservatives, and is what is holding the party from prominence. The would (and have) support a dem over a conservative.

" Haugh has raised just $4,000—about 15% of it from his mom..."
A 50 something guy who drinks beer and delivers pizza for a living...
One poll indicated that he swing enough dumb voters to elect the Democrat.

and the Republican higher-ups join with Dhimmicrat higher ups to try to defeat America. Any more, it´s just a matter of which jersey they´re wearing, other than that there is little difference in fact.

#2, a couple of points:

1. Has Thom Tillis evinced any indication of corruption? Is he more corrupt than Kay Hagan? Have you read his platform? Can you cite anything in it that does not tally with conservative goals?

2. Voting against any candidate endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce means that ultimately, you´ll end up voting only for the most left-wing Democrats, because any Republican/conservative/Tea Party candidate will end up being supported by the Chamber of Commerce against a Democrat.

Joni Ernst was endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce. She was also endorsed by Sarah Palin. Do you suggest voting against Ernst in favor of her Democratic opponent?

ISIS release video claiming to show beheading
of British hostage David Haines
Daily Mail (UK), by Steph Cockroft    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/13/2014 6:28:56 PM     Post Reply
The Islamic State has released a video claiming to show the beheading of British captive David Haines. The father-of-two, an aid worker, was abducted by militants in Syria last year. He appeared at the end of a video showing the beheading of US journalist Steven Sotloff earlier this month. In the video, which has been posted on sites such as YouTube, the extremists also threaten to execute another Briton. Islamic State (IS) extremists had threatened to kill Mr Haines and have not responded to any of the family´s attempts to make contact so far, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said.

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life. Mrs Clinton, 66, has rarely spoken about her husband’s infidelity with White House intern Monica

It was supposed to be a somber occasion with guests mournfully remembering the passing of Joan Rivers during the funereal Jewish custom of ´sitting shiva,´ a seven-day period after death when relatives and friends gather to remember a loved one. But this was, after all, the legendary Joan Rivers — and in the end, the Friday event in Los Angeles turned out to be a star-studded celebration filled with fun memories, irreverence and much laughter. ´It was weird to be at an event like that and have a good time, but I think Joan would probably want something like that,´

Barack Obama´s plan to fight

Washington - Were it any other US president in recent memory, delivering a rousing White House address promising to "vanquish" the bloodthirsty militants of the Islamic State from the face of the earth would be dismissed as the "easy part". Recall Joe Biden, the vice president with half an eye on a run for the top job in 2016, promising to follow Isil "to the gates of hell" after the beheading of a second US journalist, and you get the picture of just how easy it can be. But as Mr Obama admitted last week with a faint whiff of

As Islamic State fighters from Syria blitzed across northern Iraq this summer, they swept thousands of fresh recruits from Iraqi Sunni tribal militias, prisons and insurgent groups into their ranks, nearly tripling the size of their armed force and catching U.S. authorities by surprise, U.S. intelligence officials said Friday. Dismantling the lethal new alliances in Iraq will be a key focus as the Obama administration scrambles to push back the fast-growing extremist army, which has achieved major military gains, shows sophisticated command and control, and is exceedingly well-funded, the intelligence officials said. In coming days, the U.S. military "will be

State Sen. Rod Wright Gets
90 Days for Perjury
Breitbart California, by Daniel Nussbaum    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/13/2014 2:00:49 PM     Post Reply
Democratic State Senator Roderick Wright was sentenced on Friday to 90 days in jail, three years of probation, and 1,500 hours of community service after being convicted on federal perjury and voting fraud charges in January. Wright is also banned for life from holding public office. While running to represent California´s 25th State Senate district in 2008, Wright lied about his residence to qualify for the ballot, according to the Desert Sun. He claimed he lived in an Inglewood apartment complex within the 25th District, but prosecutors were able to show that Wright´s true residence was a Baldwin Hills home

This might be Rory McIlroy´s most fantastic feat to date. On Friday at the Tour Championship, McIlroy hit a drive on the 14th hole into the trees on the right side of the fairway. Somehow, that drive landed in a fan´s pocket. After an awkward back-and-forth (how could it not be?!) McIlroy got the ball from the guy´s pocket (not on his own), dropped, and made par. He shook the fan´s hand twice laughing both times at just how absurd

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry. Take a look at what she wore for all that. A little too full for her figure? (Photographs).. A flattering

Restoring Civility to Politics
the Ted Cruz Way
U.S. News & World Report, by Susan Milligan    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/13/2014 12:56:41 PM     Post Reply
Ted Cruz is not the first name on everyone’s list when one thinks of restoring decorum to politics and public discourse. Yet Cruz, the famous GOP firebrand who is Texas’ junior senator, did just that in a recent speech to a group calling itself In Defense of Christians. In his address, Cruz reiterated his strong support for Israel – hardly an outlier opinion for a member of Congress, particularly in the current political environment – and asserted, “Christians have no greater ally than Israel.” Again, this is not a provocative thing to say. It’s an opinion shared by many active

Inside the president’s ‘doomsday’ planes

America has a doomsday plane. Actually it has four of them. But the US government does not — repeat, DOES NOT — talk openly about its doomsday planes. The doomsday plane is like a mirror to Air Force One — a great big flying working office for the president and his or her staff. But while Air Force One is your everyday, garden variety kind of presidential flying office, the doomsday plane is built and equipped to keep the US government running in the event of a nuclear war or other disaster. Here’s some of the stuff we know about it: It’s a converted 747 called an E-4B, also referred to as the “National Airborne Operations

This weekend marks the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Fort McHenry, the battle which inspired Francis Scott Key to write our national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.” In honor of that historic day, we’ve compiled a list of some of the memorable moments the flag was lifted and shown reverence. 1. The Battle at Fort McHenry (9/13-9/14 1814)-Our flag has had some great moments but perhaps the greatest would have been the one that inspired the national anthem. After witnessing Fort McHenry being attacked by British warships the night of Sept.13, 1814, from a neighboring ship, Washington lawyer Francis Scott Key woke

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage, according to CBS Los Angeles. Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and
