´Joan of Arc´ Warren hurts
the Grimes campaign

Herald-Leader [Lexington, KY], by Bill Stone

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/14/2014 11:01:53 AM

Throughout her campaign for U.S. Senate, Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes has tried to run and hide from Washington liberals in her party headlined by President Barack Obama and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Not anymore. Recently, and incredibly, Grimes officially aligned herself with the most exotic Democratic Party segments by campaigning with the doyenne of the leftist hierarchy, former Harvard professor, and now U.S. senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. Kentucky´s small-business owners believe in promoting America´s economic advantages such as our natural energy resources. Warren thinks that whatever success we achieve has come at the expense of our fellow citizens. She discounts the

Comments:
Allison Grimes is another of the big Emily´s List beneficiaries. I´ll bet pro-abortion backing isn´t helping Ms. Grimes in Kentucky, either.

How Warren is going to help Grimes escapes me. Warren is being promoted as a populist who´s "fighting for the middle class," but in fact every single one of her policies is designed to destroy the middle class. On the other hand...never underestimate the propensity of the gullible to buy snake oil.

Actually, I think this business of sending Warren around the country to stump for candidates is intended less to help the candidates than it is to introduce Warren to as broad a spectrum of the public as possible, in order to see how she´d fare as a presidential candidate. Badly, I hope. But she will have the national press on her side.

Warren´s also going into West Virginia to campaign for the Senate candidate. She must think that if she can craft a message that will resonate in KY and WV she can be a player on the national stage. I love the line about her being so out of touch she needs a translator when she enters real world America.

This is definitely an election of holding your nose all the way into the polls. Mitch is not very popular, either.

Lizzie ------ took an axe and gave her mother 40 wackes. Not familiar with the statements of Grimes. But old Lizzie is doing her high cheekbones no favors by proclaiming to be Joan of Arc....

EVERYONE knows that Sarah has had that title since she first took stage some time ago.

As she is a legend in her own mind perhaps she might consider proclaiming to be Morgan le Fay and stop emulating Sarah via DIY statements

There cannot be two Joan´s

Ok, Liz Warren is loudly pro-choice and human-caused global warming. Neither of those positions play well in Kentucky and West Virginia. Does she hope those subjects simply don´t come up? Grimes seems to be avoiding any discussion of her pro-abortion financial backers.

If I were a Kentucky or West Virginia voter, I´d be tattooing Vote GOP on my forehead. There doesn´t seem to be a realistic alternative.

Did McDaniel wait too late to file?

Chris McDaniel´s first hurdle in his lawsuit to overturn his loss to Thad Cochran is a doozy: He may have waited too late to file it. As he worked for weeks building a case and campaigning that the election was stolen from him, McDaniel´s team said a 20-day deadline applies only to challenges of county and local elections, not a statewide U.S. Senate primary. Others, including the secretary of state, agreed with him. "Justice has no timetable," McDaniel said numerous times when questioned why it was taking so long to file his challenge of the June 24 GOP runoff for U.S. Senate. But

When voters go to the polls in primary elections across Florida on Tuesday most attention will be focused on the race in November for the state´s governor´s mansion, shaping up to be one of the most contested - and expensive - in recent memory. The outcome of Tuesday´s Republican and Democrat primaries is a foregone conclusion with incumbent Rick Scott and his main Democratic challenger, former Governor Charlie Crist, forecast to win by wide margins. The race between Scott and Crist in November is expected to be one of the nation´s most closely watched races because it offers Democrats a rare chance

A new poll of the Georgia Senate race by WSB-TV/Landmark shows Democrat Michelle Nunn leading Republican David Perdue by 7 points, 47-40. If the Dems flip this seat, their chances of maintaining control of the Senate will receive a huge boost. So should Republicans be alarmed by this poll? Probably not. Two polls from just a week ago give Perdue the lead by 9 points (Survey USA) and 7 points (Insider Advantage). In fact, Perdue does so well in four of the five most recent polls that the Real Clear Politics average for the race stands at Perdue +4.2 even with the

A crowd of family, friends, music stars, civil rights leaders and preachers gathered at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church on Monday for the memorial of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old robbery suspect who was fatally shot by local police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo. Brown’s uncle, Pastor Charles Ewing, gave a passionate eulogy and made parallels of his nephew’s life and that of the life of Jesus Christ. “Michael Brown was 18 years old. He was shot around noon. Our Lord and Savior hung on the cross — now compare our time frame 12 o’clock to the Jewish time frame which

Peter Schorsch did something for our nation that took courage and conviction. He knew he’d be assaulted for it, and he did it anyway and then stood by his actions. Even bragged about it. He held to his convictions and said he’d do it again, no matter how unpopular it made him. Peter Schorsch did what we all thought about doing but didn’t have the guts. Peter Schorsch ended the pay-it-forward guilt chain at a Starbucks drive-thru.

President Barack Obama´s summer vacation off the Massachusetts coast has come to an end. The president returned to the White House late Sunday after spending two weeks with his family on the island of Martha´s Vineyard. What a break it turned out to be. His attempt at rest and relaxation was largely overtaken by events involving Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, including the videotaped execution of an American journalist they had been holding hostage, and the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man. Obama broke from his vacation to deliver statements on Iraq,

Earthquake rattles, doesn´t

Near the height of annual harvesting and tourist season, California´s Napa Valley wineries were struck hard by Sunday´s magnitude-6.0 earthquake, but many reported surprisingly light damage. The early morning earthquake, whose epicenter was about 9 miles south of Napa, jolted residents and had winemakers scrambling to check their homes and businesses. "It was a very violent awakening," says Sandy Taylor, co-founder of the Taylor Family Winery in Napa. "It seemed to shake a long time. Our dogs and cats bailed out." Taylor says her winery, about a mile from the epicenter, lost one barrel of 2013 Chardonnay. "The finished bottles at the winery

Missing and unmentioned in the Post article are any complaints of mistreatment or racism by Officer Wilson from residents of Jennings and Ferguson prior to the Brown shooting. The Washington Post published a long article Saturday night–more than seventy paragraphs–with three bylines and six supporting reporters looking for dirt on Officer Darren Wilson–an effort unmatched by the media since Sarah Palin’s official emails were released from her time as Alaska governor. Officer Wilson is the white Ferguson, Missouri policeman who shot unarmed black 18 year old robber Michael Brown in a confrontation in the middle of a neighborhood street minutes after Brown

Why you should keep your family

With summer drawing to a close, parents are desperate. Camp’s over; the kids’ friends have left for more exotic destinations. A trip to the pool doesn’t yield the same excitement it did in June. And so many families are caving to demands for a trip to the amusement park. Whether you’re thinking of Six Flags, Sesame Place, Hershey Park or Dutch Wonderland: Don’t do it — you’ll be sorry. Amusement parks — especially water parks — have never been more popular. More than 26 million people went to a Six Flags last year.

The Growing Blue-State Diaspora

Californians have moved to Colorado and Nevada. Massachusetts natives have moved to New Hampshire. New Yorkers have moved to North Carolina and Virginia — and, of course, have continued moving to Florida. Over the last few decades, residents of many traditionally liberal states have moved to states that were once more conservative. And this pattern has played an important role in helping the Democratic Party win the last two presidential elections and four of the last six. The growth of the Latino population and the social liberalism of the millennial generation may receive more attention, but the growing diaspora of blue-state

President Obama Doesn’t Care What We Think About His Golfing. After that brutal New York Daily News cover Thursday afternoon, hitting him for going golfing right after his remarks about the beheading of American, President Obama responded Thursday afternoon… by going golfing. President Obama doesn’t care if the optics are bad. He doesn’t care if there’s an awful contrast because UK Prime Minister David Cameron canceled his vacation plans. He doesn’t care if he’s getting grief from once-stalwart fans like Chris Matthews and Maureen Dowd. He doesn’t care if Congressional Democrats are openly griping about his disinterest and disconnect in the New

A New Hampshire couple won a $2.4-million jackpot at a vaunted Las Vegas slot machine, ending a 20-year run in which many contestants tried and failed to coax a giant payout from the recalcitrant machine. Walter and Linda Misco of Chester, N.H., played for five minutes Friday night before inserting a $100 bill into the "Lion´s Share" slot machine at the MGM Grand and hitting the jackpot. The game, which is the last progressive slot machine left on the casino´s floor, had tempted players since the 1990s with its ever-increasing jackpot. The casino said it was the most popular slot

A Justice Department official admitted that former IRS official Lois Lerner’s apparently missing emails actually exist on a backup server, but the government doesn’t plan to retrieve them. , “A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News’ Shannon Bream. “But it would be too hard to go get lois lerner’s emails from that backup system,” Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

May ran through the stats of the 21,000-person Missouri town: 13,000 black citizens, about 7,000 white. Five city council members– one of whom was black.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.
