Michelle Nunn’s felon fundraiser
Constitution-Journal [Atlanta, GA], by Daniel Malloy, Greg Bluestein*

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/14/2014 10:52:51 AM

When Michelle Nunn attended a fundraiser on Capitol Hill the other day, as we reported, one of the three co-sponsors of the event was Virtual Murrell, who owns a government relations firm in D.C. The conservative National Review dug deeper into Murrell’s background and found quite a tale: Murrell was indicted in 1994 by a federal grand jury on charges that he solicited and received over $37,000 in bribes from businesses in San Francisco while serving as an aide to an Oakland city councilman. The indictment found him guilty of violating the Hobbs Act, a federal statute that prohibits elected and

Comments:

Ms. Nunn is heavily backed by Emily´s List. Emily´s List supports female candidates who will speak out in support of abortion.

According to this morning, WSJ, Emily´s List is the single biggest backer for these four Democrat females in the South:

Allison Grimes
Michelle Nunn
Natalie Tenannt
Kay Hagan

This backing is all about "abortion rights".

Nunn is no centrist, although she´s trying desperately to portray herself as one. She´s a died-in-the-wool liberal Democrat. And, as has been noted, she was endorsed by Emily´s List a year ago, and they´ve made substantial financial contributions to get her elected this November.

Sam Nunn´s homely daughter Nag Nunn has never had a job. She is merely a community organizer. If she is elected she´ll just be a hand puppet for Dingy Harry Reid. Felons have contributed to her campaign. But at least they broke the law for a reason. One of her main backers is Jane Fonda who is worse than a felon. Don´t know what will happen. Georgia and most of the southern states are near tipping points. We are being flooded with illegal immigrants who want the government to take from the workers and give to the bums.

One L-Dotter is proud to be actively campaigning for Michelle Nunn because her dad was a "good guy". That reasoning escapes me.

Johns Hopkins study: Huge gulf between
D.C. political class and the rest of America
Legal Insurrection, by Amy Miller    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 9/20/2014 5:42:13 AM     Post Reply
A new study from Johns Hopkins University suggests exactly what many conservative activists have been complaining about for years: Washington is out of touch with the rest of America. From Johns Hopkins: Surveying 850 people who either work in government or directly with it, researchers found that the inside-the-Beltway crowd has very little in common with America at large. Washington insiders are more likely to be white. They are more educated. Their salaries are higher, they vote more and have more faith in the fairness of elections. They are probably Democrat and liberal. They more diligently follow the news. And they think

Ebola crisis: Yes, we need to help but is

America is silently acquiescing to President Obama’s extraordinarily expensive and flawed plan to fight Ebola in West Africa. Tuesday, Obama announced he is committing $763 million dollars and 3,000 military personnel to taming the outbreak that so far has killed 2,400 people. Though help is urgently needed there, the plan does too little to protect Americans. Obama said nothing about temporarily banning commercial air travel between the U.S. and West Africa, in order to help prevent Ebola from coming here. Some 220,000 residents of West African countries have visas that permit them to enter the United States.

The Kansas Supreme Court Gives Democrats
What They Want—But the Fight May Not Be Over

Late yesterday, the Kansas supreme court granted the writ of mandamus filed by former Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Chad Taylor and ordered Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach to remove Taylor’s name from the November ballot. But the controversy may not yet be over because of another writ filed by a Democratic voter. The court dismissed Kobach’s claim (explained in an earlier NRO post) that Taylor failed to comply with the state statute (K.S.A. 25-306b(b)) that requires a candidate who wants to withdraw to certify that “they are incapable of fulfilling the duties of office if elected.” Taylor sent a letter

Deval Patrick is one lucky hack. In most years, the bust-out governor of Massachusetts would be considered the absolute most incompetent politician in the United States, if not the world, hands down. But these days Deval couldn’t even get himself arrested, even though he certainly deserves to be, given his mis-, mal- and nonfeasance in office. Deval’s problem? When it comes to incompetence, and corruption, Barack Obama has sucked all of the air out of the room. His endless fiascoes have pushed every other pol’s scandals on the back pages.

Well, this ought to whet the appetites of certain journalists. Sarah Palin is among the confirmed speakers for the ninth annual Values Voters Summit next week in the nation’s capital. “Governor Palin has always been a steadfast supporter of natural marriage and every human’s right to life. She not only ‘talks the talk’ but also walks by her convictions. We are proud to stand with the Governor and are honored to have her presence, for the first time, at the Values Voter Summit,” says Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council Action, organizer of the big doings.

OMG: Limbaugh´s ´Jesus´
banished from NYT best seller list

There they go again. The New York Times Book Review, which has a history of belatedly recognizing conservative bestsellers, has banished conservative legal author David Limbaugh’s latest, Jesus on Trial, from its upcoming best seller list despite having sales better than 17 other books on the list. According to publishing sources, Limbaugh’s probe into the accuracy of the Bible sold 9,660 in its first week out, according to Nielsen BookScan. That should have made it No. 4 on the NYT print hardcover sales list. Instead, Henry Kissinger’s World Order, praised by Hillary Clinton in the Washington Post, is No. 4 despite weekly sales

Happy Constitution Day! Ninth Circuit

It’s official: the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has issued an order declining a request for an en banc hearing in a case involving four students in at a California high school who were sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The full slate of Ninth Circuit judges has thus agreed with a lower district court and with a trio of appellate judges that officials at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif. could censor students who wanted to wear flag-emblazoned shirts. The federal appeals court issued its denial of an en banc hearing on Sept.

A large government contracting firm that appears to be doing or seeking business with the National Security Agency employs the spouse of one of the most powerful officials at the agency, according to corporate records, press releases, and company websites. But the NSA has declined to address whether there is a potential conflict of interest or to disclose any information about contracts or the official’s financial holdings. The spouse, for years, has also had an intelligence technology company incorporated at the couple’s suburban residence in Maryland. The NSA official, Teresa H.

CLAYTON, Missouri -- Protesters seeking the immediate arrest of the white Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old loudly disrupted another government meeting Tuesday. The group renewed calls to remove the county prosecutor investigating the case and vowed political retaliation against an elected official tied to the prosecutor. The demand for officer Darren Wilson´s arrest and the recusal of the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney began with the final utterance of the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the St. Louis County Council meeting. "For all," crowd members shouted, emphasizing the second word, as the pledge concluded with,

Worried the pearly gates won´t have clean water? TV evangelist Jim Bakker has your back. Twenty years after his release from prison following rape and fraud allegations, the disgraced pastor is busy selling unique survival kits apparently for the Apocalypse. On his website for his latest TV program, "The Jim Bakker Show," the 74-year-old sells everything from bulk "End of the World Biscuits," "Extreme Survival Bottles" — two for $57 — and extreme cold-weather apparel. The evangelist, who considers himself one of today´s experts on the Book of Revelation, appears motivated by the prophetic scriptures in the Bible, which warn of the Rapture

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. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss.

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.

We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam.

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
