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!

#3, I totally agree. My neighbor, a Conservative state representative was not even shocked when I told him, "no more political donations." Many previous donors are boycotting the politicians money buckets.

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.

The terrible cost of thwarting Hamas
Times of Israel, by David Horovitz    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/23/2014 1:16:00 PM     Post Reply
Israel’s mood at the start of this war with Hamas was one of confident assurance. We wouldn’t be deterred by the rocket threat, and Hamas would be contained. That’s utterly changed. The rockets turned out to be the least of our concerns. And the national mood now is a mixture of anguish at the growing toll of IDF dead, anger at the feckless response of parts of the international community — notably the US — and confidence in the troops and (atypically) the political leadership. To lose the lives of 30 Israelis to terrorism is, appallingly, nothing new in a country

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Republican Party’s bookish former vice presidential nominee, is starting to look like a candidate for the presidency in 2016. In August, Ryan will publish a book with a distinctly campaign-themed title, The Way Forward. On Tuesday, the Federal Election Commission approved of a nationwide book tour sponsored by Ryan’s publisher and the Political Action Committee the Wisconsin congressman founded, Prosperity Action PAC. “The book will address “the state of the conservative movement in America today, discuss how it contrasts with liberal progressivism, and explain what must be done to save what Representative Ryan refers to as the

The Odds of a GOP
Wave Are Increasing

Posted By: StormCnter- 7/23/2014 1:10:30 PM     Post Reply
When writing about politics, it´s all too frequent to use terminology that often obscures more than elucidates. That´s especially true when it comes to the word "wave"—shorthand for a landslide victory for the winning party. I´ve argued before that the likelihood of 2014 being a wave election has been rising, given the president´s consistently low approval ratings and the fact that Republicans are running evenly on the generic ballot (which usually translates into a clear GOP edge) and that the right-track/wrong-track numbers are near historic lows. All these big-picture signs are ominous for the party in power. But this week, The

John Podesta, one of President Obama´s closest White House advisers, counts among his key financial supporters Hansjorg Wyss, a reclusive Swiss billionaire whose company conducted illegal human experiments that resulted in the deaths of three elderly patients. Justice Department attorneys negotiated a $23.8 million plea deal in 2011 with Synthes Inc., and Norian Corporation, its wholly owned subsidiary, and sent four of its U.S. executives to prison. The money was paid to the federal government. Two of the victims died in a California hospital and the third perished in a Texas medical facility. One of the California victims was Ryoichi Kikuchi, 83,

Last month, Ukraine quietly asked the United States and NATO for sensitive equipment to jam the radars that Russian anti-aircraft systems use to lock their missiles on planes. As the United States and NATO last month began to publicly acknowledge the sophisticated Russian anti-aircraft systems moving into rebel held areas of eastern Ukraine, the government in Kiev asked for gear that might be used to counter those weapons. According to a former senior U.S. defense official who has worked closely with Ukraine’s military and a former head of state who has consulted with the government there, Kiev last month requested the radar

Remember the presidential race between Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton, the front runners eight years ago, each tough as nails, each combat-tested and raring to go? It was one for the ages, except it was not: Rudy dropped out before the gates opened, Hillary met a community organizer, and we all know the rest. But the race that took place was almost as thrilling: a true neck and neck between John McCain and Barack Obama, who entered September in a virtual tie. McCain was leading on Sept. 15 when the fiscal system went bust, taking with it the entire economy: a nail-biter

Tuesday, President Obama visited the Dutch Embassy in Washington, D.C., and wrote in a condolence book for the victims of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, “We will not rest until we are certain that justice is done.” He then departed for a three-day fundraising trip to the West Coast. Obama’s pledge that “we will not rest until . . . ” may sound familiar to you. In fact, the pledge is so chronically overused, and issued so casually, that it no longer carries much meaning. Here’s a brief history: April 9, 2009: “We will not rest until we reach a day when not one

The news media, especially the Washington Post, is giving the so-called antiwar group Code Pink prominent coverage for the protests against Israel during its current defensive war with Hamas in Gaza. What the Post and the rest of the media don’t report is that Code Pink is allied with the Hamas and has “diplomatic” relations with the terrorist group. In June 2009 Code Pink made a trip to Hamas-controlled Gaza. According to reports by two participants, Code Pink had such a close relationship with Hamas that the terrorists literally rolled out the red carpet for Code Pink and that a Code Pink

The ‘Down Payment’ Ploy, Coming Right Up: Immigration “comprehensivists” claim Obama’s promised executive actions to protect illegal immigrants constitute a kind of doomsday weapon directed at the Republican party. If Obama acts boldly to offer de facto legalization to, say, “up to half of the undocumented population” of 11 million illegals living here, it will cement an unshakeable bond between Latino voters and their political champion — or so the argument goes. The more Republicans complain and stamp their feet the more they’ll “lastingly” alienate this growing ethnic bloc, predicts Ron Brownstein. ** But hasn’t Obama more obviously put himself in

Has Texas Gov. Rick Perry thrown down

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is sending up to 1,000 National Guard troops to the Lone Star State´s border with Mexico in an attempt to contain the flood of illegal immigrants entering the U.S. Perry can do this because under the Constitution, state governors are the commanders in chief of the guard, which is the modern equivalent of colonial militias. Perry´s action has the potential to change the political dynamics of the immigration reform debate but it depends upon whether it makes a discernible difference in the situation on the border. As the New York Times predictably described it, Perry´s move

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

When President Obama wraps up his 16-day summer break next month on Martha´s Vineyard, Mass., he will have taken all or part of 141 days of vacation, time split between summers on the island, winters in his native Hawaii and birthday weekends at his Chicago home. Obama has been criticized for taking costly and lengthy vacations, especially compared to the short trips most Americans take. The U.S. Travel Association told Secrets that the average American vacation lasts just 3.7 days. But his 141 days out of Washington are far less than the 378 former President George W. Bush took in
