Rove American Crossroads
in Mississippi Controversy

American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/16/2014 8:43:14 AM

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night. […] “Other than Alaska, we have completed our work on Senate primaries

The "establishment" have blown both feet off. I will vote for Michelle Nunn in November as I believe a Republican Senate will do as much harm to the brand as they did the last time they had the chamber. RINO´s first them the dems.

As the left has highjacked the democratic party, the ensconced ruling elite have highjacked the GOP.

Plan A - just accept the way things are
Plan B - run against the GOP and let them frequently cheat their way into office
Plan C - vote democrat for one election, remove the cheat and the insert a conservative in the subsequent election.

Plan A dooms the country in 5-10 years
Plan B dooms the country in 10-20 years
Plan C gives us a 25-50% chance of saving the country.

I am not happy with Republicans either, BUT Harry Reid needs to be punished, and stripped of his power. He needs to be humiliated. WE can do that.

I say stand on your principles #4. The go along to get along compromise threatens to ruin this nation once and for all. It is time to make a stand and demand integrity from those in office. It is time to send the GOP a message. I would rather the nation go to ruin at the hand of those who stand for its ruin than by the hand of the those who side with the Democrats secretly and battle against conservatives openly. No way will a RINO ever get my vote again. Let the chips fall where they may.

Those who demand that we vote for a party regardless of its actions are the ones who have enabled the mess that we have.

Had lunch in Jackson, MS with a good friend (one of the 3 smartest people I´ve ever met). Opinion is McDaniel is a flake and is being used to make this a win for the demons. Has some serious racist and flakey issues that will "magically appear" if he´s successful. Thoughts were after Cochran read the tea leaves from the primary he got his butt in gear and outhustled Mcd.

Great strategy, #4. Nothing--absolutely NOTHING--will put the country on a true conservative track like overloading the senate with liberal Democrats!

As for Michelle Nunn, you are aware, aren´t you, that one of her biggest backers is Emily´s List, which works actively to put pro-abortion candidates in office. And Elizabeth Warren, the pin-up girl of progressives, will be campaigning for her.

But of course Nunn, a died-in-the-wool liberal Democrat, is preferable to Jack Kingston, who has a 95+ rating from the American Conservative Union. Right? Because she´ll help "clean house."

To the surprise and disappointment of exactly no one who frequents this salon, the usual past tense liberal republicans try to shift the focus from the despicable acts of the prince of the unprincipled onto the offended loyal subjects who wish to lodge a protest.
Yesterday when it was presented that Eric Cantor is withholding support of the guy who kicked his arse, we were quickly assured that losers don´t need to unite behind winners....

And today, the usual self appointed hall monitors insist that you shut up and support the people who have ignored the protests and done irrepairable harm to the reputations of solid, loyal grass roots republicans not just in Mississippi but nationwide.

Loyalty to idiots and mediocre PTA mothers is foolishness.

Crossroads, which hasn´t supported a prolife Susan B. Anthony candidate in this cycle, now wants to remind you that you don´t wanna vote for one of those Emily´s list people.

Karl Rove and his cheerleaders owe an very public apology for their actions in Mississippi. You either disown it or you own it.

As to Ms. Nunn, she is the etch a sketch candidate of the day it seems. Pro keystone pipeline, antiACA, antigay marriage, criticized and not progressive enough.

Jack Kingston is backed by the CoC, thus is a vote for amnesty unless he gets a pass AFTER he votes for cloture. Not a big difference from Ms Nunn.

So McDaniels is a flake and Cochran (´I´ve done strange things with animals´) isn´t?! Sheesh!

The MS and national GOP were both alert to the fact that Cochran is failing and wanted to quit. So why weren´t they preparing good candidates to replace him? Because they can´t give up the power that derives from seniority, even if it means that the senate staffers will be propping up an unfit office holder.

And forget about the Rovian sycophants/mutual admiration society offering even a mild condemnation of the despicable racist anti-McDaniels shenanigans. This is who they are. They will do anything to protect their privileged status within the Establishment. Plus they are embarrassed (and perhaps guilty, too) by the social conservative´s stance on traditional moral issues.

Voting en bloc for a Democrat is one way to symbolically spit on the Establishment. But they hold Conservatives in such deep disdain that even full abandonment by the base will not have any effect on them. They will simply continue to blame us for their losses.

Funny you should mention Ernst, #25. I agree that the Chamber of Commerce traditionally backs business friendly candidates and those are almost always Republicans and, of those, many Republicans running as particularly conservative.

I see that Conservatives4Palin enthusiastically touted Ernst´s landing of a CofC Endorsement.

There are not many real guardians of our Constitutional Republic left. Perhaps it is because the Constitutional Republic exists only in written documents that many elected officials disregard, loophole, and violate every day while the populace is lulled into a false sense of reality by the mainstream media, the main perpetrator of public deception. Allen West is a “Guardian of the Republic,” an exceptional American and war hero. He gave a teleprompter-free, heart-felt and spellbinding speech to the Republican Women of Clifton on September 28, 2014. He recounted the famous story of Benjamin Franklin, who came out of Independence Hall in Philadelphia

Michelle Obama: U.S. Has Improved

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Gay marriage debate

NEW YORK — As same-sex marriage cases cascade through the federal courts, Republican politicians find themselves awkwardly split into three camps. There´s a small but growing number who favor legalizing gay marriage, a hard-core faction that continues to denounce it, and a sizable group in between that seems to wish the issue would disappear. At one end of the spectrum, at least eight GOP members of Congress have endorsed same-sex marriage, and two openly gay GOP candidates for the House hope to join them. In Massachusetts, Richard Tisei has run ads featuring his husband. In California, Carl DeMaio ran an ad showing him

Note: Hate speech, not hate crimes. YouGov asked people about hate crimes for its poll too and found bipartisan support for the federal law that provides steeper penalties for crimes motivated by hatred of the victim’s race, religion, gender, or national origin. Sixty-four percent of Dems gave thumbs-up to that versus 54 percent of Republicans. A plurality of Republicans also support expanding that law to target hate crimes committed against gays: 44 percent say yes versus 30 percent who say no. Hate-crimes laws matter in the sentencing phase. If you’re guilty of the underlying offense, then you can be punished more

On Friday, a Washington D.C. hospital admitted a patient with possible Ebola symptons. If the patient is confirmed to have the virus, it would be the second documented case in the U.S. While we know the public is concerned about the spread of this incredibly dangerous virus, what many may not know is that it has the potential to impact the stock market, and the economy, even if it doesn’t spread.

Mitt Romney just made a savvy next step in his quiet, camouflaged 2016 campaign. Like a growing number of Americans, Romney refused to declare a political party when he filled out a new voter registration reform in Utah. It´s the sort of party-rejecting step that could position a reinvented Romney to become America´s first non-Democrat or Republican president since the 1800s. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the new Utah registration form completed and signed by Romney last August deliberately leaves out any party identification. As the Republican nominee in 2012 and a Republican candidate in 2008, this would seem to

The Democrat/Progressive Party may be signing their own death certificate in the 2014 elections with their mishandling of Ebola. One and half million people are quarantined in Sierra Leone. The first case has hit America. And all Obama has done is make a speech saying everything is fine here, but he’s sending American troops into harm’s way there. A ghastly virus that kills 50-100% of its victims and has no known treatment is something people notice. It is something women notice. Ebola is creating an epidemic of fear, for good reason.

Scientists to ‘fast-track’ evidence
linking global warming to wild weather
Independent (U.K.), by Tom Bawden    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 10/4/2014 3:06:58 AM     Post Reply
Scientists are to challenge the climate-change sceptics by vastly improving the speed with which they can prove links between a heatwave or other extreme weather event and man-made changes to the atmosphere. It typically takes about a year to determine whether human-induced global warming played a role in a drought, storm, torrential downpour or heatwave – and how big a role it played. This allows climate sceptics to dismiss any given extreme event as part of the “natural weather variation” in the immediate aftermath, while campaigners automatically blame it on global warming. By the time the truth comes out most people have lost

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

threat to America than any terror group -
so why is Obama spending billions bombing

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

First lady Michelle Obama believes that Democrats running for Congress eagerly desire her presence on the campaign trail during the run-up to the 2014 midterm elections. However, she has avoided helping some Senate Democrats because she’s mad at them for failing to show adequate support for her deeply unpopular attempt to change people’s diets. The Daily Caller is not making this up. The New York Times has reported it. (Snip) Michelle Obama was also especially furious after nearly a dozen Democrats from states where potatoes are a commercial crop joined Republican lawmakers in opposing a decision by the Obama
