Democrats’ Woes Make Al
Franken a Little Less Safe

Wall Street Journal, by Patrick O´Connor

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/14/2014 5:06:19 PM

It’s not you Al, it’s your party. Stuart Rothenberg, editor and publisher of the nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report, changed his rating on Sen. Al Franken’s race for re-election in Minnesota to reflect a slightly more competitive environment for the Democrat. But Mr. Rothenberg, an experienced handicapper, was quick to note that his ratings change – from “safe Democrat” to “Democrat favored” – has everything to do with headwinds confronting the party and very little to do with Mr. Franken’s Republican opponent, businessman Mike McFadden.

Comments:
It´s not you Al, it´s your party? I beg to differ. It´s all of the above. His defeat would be absolutely delightful. That´s just a start. There are hundreds of sick, twisted Democrats that need to go.

Look at the democrat idiots in Congress. Then we have to listen to establishment republicans say the tea party can´t put forward a winning candidate. Well establishment, why can´t you beat a Franken, Reid, Durbin, Schumer -- the bottom of the barrel?

This may be an interesting year for Minnesota´s elections. Two years ago, hordes of Millenials went to the polls to vote against a marriage amendment and a voter ID amendment, as well as their savior, BHO. None of that is a factor this year.

Instead, they´ll think twice about bothering to drive to the polls to vote for the bumbling, stammering, trust-fund brat, Mark Dayton, who is seeking reelection as guv.

The Republicans have a good chance if they play a disciplined game.

#2, Norm Coleman was a good candidate. We sent money and campaigned hard for him. When polls closed, Norm was leading by 215 votes. Unfortunately, the Dem machine forced recount after recount until a ballot box was scared up on an Indian reservation to finally put Al over the top. It´s not always about good candidates, my friend.

Every once in a while the stars align just right and MN elects a Republican senator. Some gangster ´children´ fresh out of El Salvador running through Minneapolis may just do it.

Pirro: Indictment Of Rick Perry

On Saturday’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” in her “Opening Statement” segment, host Jeanine Pirro slammed the indictment of Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) by a grand jury empaneled by Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, who Pirro described as a “drunk.” “A famous court of appeals judge once said a grand jury could indict a ham sandwich.

The White House announced Friday that President Barack Obama will jet out to the small Eastern European country of Estonia in early September, before attending a NATO meeting in Wales. The trip is likely intended to deter Russian President Vladimir Putin from grabbing parts of Estonia and its two small neighbors, all of whom contain populations of ethnic Russians. All three countries are member of NATO, and are too small to block a determined Russian invasion. “In light of recent developments in Ukraine, the United States has taken steps to reassure allies in Central and Eastern Europe, and this trip

Defenders of Texas Gov. Rick Perry are stepping forward following his sudden indictment Friday on two felony counts of abuse-of-power charges, relating to the governor’s efforts last year to obtain the resignation of a Travis County district attorney. “Unfortunately, there has been a sad history of the Travis County District Attorney’s Office engaging in politically-motivated prosecutions, and this latest indictment of the governor is extremely questionable. Rick Perry is a friend, he’s a man of integrity — I am proud to stand with Rick Perry.” Sen Ted Cruz said in a statement on Saturday. “The Texas Constitution gives the governor

The saga of University of California, Santa Barbara feminist studies professor Mireille Miller-Young has taken yet another bizarro twist after her defenders urged a judge to excuse the criminal allegations against her because of the “cultural legacy of slavery.” Miller-Young pleaded no contest last month to misdemeanor counts of battery, theft and vandalism after she rallied up a small gaggle of female vigilantes and attacked abortion protesters Thrin Short, 16, and Joan Short, 21.

Lawmakers are targeting police with new and old pieces of legislation in the wake of riots in a St. Louis suburb sparked by the killing by a police officer of an unarmed black teenager. Much of the focus has been on the heavy military equipment many local police agencies have received from the Pentagon under a 1991 law meant to combat drug dealers. (Snip) Other lawmakers have raised concerns about racial profiling and excessive force against African Americans by police. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) called for passage of his End Racial Profiling Act, which would bar federal funding for law enforcement agencies

Democrats are salivating over Friday’s indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry, and for good reason. Their one bright hope for the cycle, Texas State Senator and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, has already done an early dive into the gutter, and their slate for the remaining up-ballot races is mediocre at best. They’re last shot might be a long shot, but that doesn’t mean they’re not going to try. Progressive grassroots juggernaut Battleground Texas is already fundraising off of the indictment. PJ Media has a copy of the e-mail sent by Battleground Texas almost immediately after the indictment was handed down:

If you thought last winter was bad, get ready for a potentially worse winter in parts of the country this year. But another record-setting winter could mean more than higher heating bills and snow fights. Harsh winter weather combined with coal-fired power plant closings could spell trouble for many households across the country who will desperately need to keep the lights and heat on this winter.

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas

One person was shot and seven people arrested early this morning as police used smoke and tear gas to impose a curfew following the killing of an unarmed black teenager. Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached.

The party left me.” Without doubt, the party under Barack Obama has left those Jews who view Israel’s security as threatened.

The scandal that erupted Friday night involved millions of dollars, statehouse power plays—oh yeah, and alcohol, police, and masks. Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted Friday on charges of abuse of power—a first degree felony—and coercion—a third degree felony. The charges stem from a 2013 scandal that has been quietly rumbling in the Lone Star State as Perry has been floated as a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2016. This is a complex case, which might be why it has not made national headlines the way other recent, state-level scandals (like Bridgegate, in New Jersey) have. Below, I have outlined

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.

Although some Democrats are calling for Texas. Gov Rick Perry´s (R) resignation after he was indicted by a grand jury on Friday, a number of left-leaning observers immediately panned the allegations as unimpressive. Perry, an expected presidential candidate in 2016, is accused of "abuse of official capacity" and "coercion of [a] public servant" by publicly threatening to zero out a state prosecutor´s funding and then actually doing it. Several pundits, including former Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod, Clinton and Obama administration alum Jonathan Prince, Vox´s Matt Yglesias, and New York magazine´s Jonathan Chait, wrote on Twitter they couldn´t see what
