Over Big Bucks For Wendy Davis

Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/17/2014 5:20:57 AM

Some of Hollywood’s wealthiest liberals are forking over big bucks for Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Texas, according to campaign finance reports recently filed by the campaign. Among those who have donated directly to Davis: singer Barbara Streisand ($1,000) and musician James Taylor ($15,000). A number of other celebs have given money to the Texas Victory Committee, a joint effort of the Davis campaign and the group Battleground Texas. Donors include actress Jennifer Garner ($25,000); director Steven Spielberg ($12,500); DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg ($12,500); actor Matt Damon ($5,000); director Tom Ford ($5,000); director Judd Apatow ($1,000); actress Carrie Fisher ($1,000); actor Tom Hanks

It´s breathtaking to see Hollywood gazillionaires dig so deeply into their personal fortunes to help out.

In return, they each get one private night with Wendy!

The left is extremley serious about makig Texas a blue state. I have to iagine iftey did they would bring drilling to a compete halt because it enriches the wrong people in their eyes.

Too many companies and businesses have moved to Texas and I have to imagine they would donate to the GOP contender to protect their investment.But it´s really sick and insane that person´s claim to fame is being rabidly pro abortion.

Her crushing defeat will be a resume enhancement in the Democrat Party. The fact that she is pro death when it comes to babies is all important to Democrats. The Democrat Party has be come the enemy within. The US Senate is putting together a bill where it will be legal to practice the Dr. Gosnell treatment, a lethal shot to the heart of an unborn. Pure evil is what the Democrat Party has become and Wendy Davis is just a pretty face put on that evil.

I keep reminding non-Texans who are interested in this race that Wendy Davis lost ALL the border districts in the Democrat primary. Those districts are heavily Hispanic and the Hispanics do not like Wendy Davis. Keep that in mind when it becomes a concern that Texas might turn blue anytime soon.

Looks like the HAIL-SATAN Crowd is being Rewarded and Funded by these Sick, ANTI-GOD Hollywood actors. I am glad, at least, that they named them. Now....if this makes you angry.......do something about it. DO NOT GO SEE THEIR MOVIES and make sure, at least on your end, that they don´t receive one penny from you. That´s what we do and many like us who are angry as heck and it´s working. Why not join us by putting them out of business huh? These very persons are helping Obama destroy our freedoms and our country. It´s good to get angry, do something POSITIVE about it by not giving these people your money.

Knowing that a bunch of elitist Hollyweird lie-berals are funding her election may very well help Abbot to a record breaking win.

My one great fear was that Davis was going to implode too soon and thus not be able to suck up enough money that would otherwise go to candidates that had a chance of winning.

Fortunately, she is still drawing money away.

Is Wendy Davis´ political star fading
in Texas gubernatorial race?
Fox News, by Kelley Beaucar Vlahos    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/2/2014 2:40:43 PM     Post Reply
As a feisty state senator with pink sneakers and a fist in the air, Wendy Davis captured both the love and the ire of America last year when she pulled an 11-hour filibuster of anti-abortion measures in the Texas Capitol. But after using that star power to win her party´s nomination for governor, Davis is still struggling to take a lead over Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, and some say party confidence in her race is waning. "I think the frustration in some Democratic circles is that, despite her star power and substantial war chest, she has not been able to move

A U.S. court in Texas will hear arguments on Tuesday in a case over a law requiring voters to present photo identification, a move the state´s Republican leaders say will prevent fraud while plaintiffs call it a veiled attempt at suppressing minority turnout. The case is also part of a new strategy by the Obama administration to challenge voting laws it says discriminate by race in order to counter a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June that freed states from strict federal oversight. . The trial at the U.S. district court in Corpus Christi stems from a three-year legal battle over stringent

Democrats are bullish about their opportunity to win the governor´s mansion in Kansas and Republicans have sent staffers out to Hawaii for what they view as a promising opportunity to turn the state red. Those statements may seem surprising given both states´ political leanings—but they´re a testament to the fact that the 2014 gubernatorial map has shifted considerably in recent months, a new reality that may cause both parties to move resources to places they never expected at the beginning of the year. Unlike the 2014 Senate map, which has remained relatively static over the course of the cycle, the

An attorney for the family of an Alaska couple murdered last year sent a scathing letter to U.S. Sen. Mark Begich claiming that his political ad using the couple’s case to attack Republican challenger Dan Sullivan is “inciting” the family and “tearing [it] apart.” Bryon Collins, the family attorney, sent the letter, titled “Second Demand To Take Down All Case References And Ads,” to Begich on Monday. “The family directly and without question has told your campaign they want no part of this,” Collins writes in the letter, obtained by The Daily Caller.

Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell has put a little more distance between him and his Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, but the race remains within the margin of error, according to the latest Bluegrass Poll. The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA for The Courier-Journal and three other news outlets, found that McConnell holds a 46 percent to 42 percent lead among likely voters over Grimes. Libertarian David Patterson gets 5 percent of the vote, and 8 percent remain undecided. It´s the third consecutive Bluegrass Poll that has found McConnell improving his chances for re-election in November. Before that, the poll found Grimes ahead

There is a new chart-topper in Roll Call’s latest monthly ranking of the 10 most vulnerable senators. Montana’s appointed Sen. John Walsh was by far the most endangered incumbent in the chamber at the time of the previous installment in early August, but his decision last month to not seek a full term opened the top slot to a couple other worthy contenders.

While Joe Biden was exhorting Detroiters to “take back America,” presumably from Barack Obama and himself, the president also expounded on the meaning of Labor Day. His themes were tiresomely familiar–we are the good guys, Republicans are the bad guys–but one interesting feature was his reference to “immigration rights.” This passage laid the groundwork: When unions and CEOs, when law enforcement and the evangelical community, when folks who usually don’t agree on anything agree that we should be fixing our broken immigration system, but the Republicans in the House of Representatives have been sitting on a bill for more than a

Only four hours west of Washington, there is a town where cell phones and wireless Internet are outlawed. Commercial radios are banned, and microwaves aren´t welcome either. Green Bank might sound like a Luddite´s dreamscape, but the West Virginia hamlet´s self-imposed blackout is being done all in the name of science: Green Bank is home to the world´s largest radio telescope, a 100-meters-in-diameter dish that is the crown jewel of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. By measuring radio waves emitted from objects in space, the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope can go where optical telescopes can´t. It lets scientists "see" parts

Twoo online fundraising pages that raised more than $400,000 for the police officer who killed an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Mo., were shut down this weekend so tax lawyers could decide how best to handle the money, an official told the Los Angeles Times. Mystery has surrounded the pages on the crowdsourced fundraising site GoFundMe since Saturday, when both were suspended by their creators without an explanatory note to donors. And some mystery persisted Monday night. "Support Officer Darren Wilson" and "Support Officer Wilson" -- two separate pages with similar names -- raised $235,750 and $197,620, respectively, for the Ferguson police

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
