Dems fear a debacle on turnout
The Hill, by Alexandra Jaffe

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/30/2014 8:07:54 AM

Record-low primary election turnout is threatening to magnify Democratic midterm worries. Both parties have made their “get out the vote” programs a top priority for November, investing millions in building bigger ground operations earlier than ever before. The challenge is most dire for Democrats, who are defending a fragile six-seat Senate majority that relies on a handful of races in hostile, GOP-leaning territory — and trying to pick up House seats in a difficult year, politically. Their push this week to raise the alarm — and campaign cash — over the GOP lawsuit against President Obama and to stoke fears of impeachment

Hence the frantic drumbeat about how the Republicans are going to impeach. None of the ones on our side ought to be helping out with this dumb idea.

Dem sympathizers in the media will never admit the truth: even their zombie voters occasionally get a grasp on reality and see the Dems for what they are.

They didn´t turn out for Obama in Colorado during the 2012 election, they turned out for pot. The Dems put it on the ballot to get the hippies and potheads out en masse.

Now they have nothing for 2014 and beyond here, but will use that playbook everywhere else they can.

Other than the reliable 30% Dem base, nobody will defend Obama against impeachment. Even the most ardent supporters can see what a disaster he is. Like all leftists, he has overreached.

Not so sure... If the Right does not put up better than "Middle of the Road" and Dem-Lite candidates, conservative voters, tired of holding their noses, may stay home.

Republicans should be pointing out, "Why are the Democrats so afraid of Impeachment? Are they afraid that the horrific overreach of their ´Messiah´ will be revealed to all Americans?"

If the media actually was concerned about the truth, everyone would know how Obama and his buddies facilitated the murder of hundreds of Mexicans with ´Fast and Furious´. Everyone would know how and why an Ambassador and embassy personnel were left to die in Bengahzi. Everyone would know the deadly danger of the Illegal Invasion of our Southern Border and how we could end up in a worse set of plagues than Africa is experiencing. Everyone would know the real unemployment number is around 12 - 15 percent, not 6.

Democrats fear the truth and they fear events that reveal the truth. Even their little programmed sheep can sense this. And their little programmed sheeple fear losing their handouts for votes - you know: extended unemployment, welfare, free stuff...

If the law cannot be applied, then the people have no recourse but to revolt and bring justice by force. We either have a civil society that obeys laws, or an armed society that enforces them.

#9, I would send money to some of these:

Tom Cotton in Arkansas, Joni Ernst in Iowa, Steve Daines in Montana, Monica Wehby in Oregon, Scott Brown in New Hampshire, Thom Tillis in North Carolina, Cory Gardner in Colorado, Bill Cassidy in Louisiana, Mike McFadden in Minnesota.

There are others, but this group includes some very likely pickups.

Many many thanks #11!

I did find a February article by Hugh Hewitt that listed 14 in all, which included all those races, but at the time 2 of the challengers had not shaken out (big yes to Joni!).

He also mentioned Steve Daines as challenger in Montana, and at the time 2 challengers in Alaska (I will have to find out which one shook out, Mead Tradwell or Dan Sullivan). He also mentioned 3 unopposed or almost unopposed seats where the R´s are Terri Lynne Land (MI), Shelley Moore Capito (WV) and Mike Rounds (SD). And he touched on Virginia but that one sounded chancier because of the McCauliffe influence...

Seems to me sending some $$ to the unopposed races is a good idea to make sure we get the easy low-hanging fruit. And I have to send double $$ to Mike McFadden for the pure pleasure of the idea of deep-sixing Frankenstein!

Panola Pepper Corporation was started for all the right reasons. Located in the town of Lake Providence in Louisiana’s East Carroll Parish, the hot sauce company has been providing employment to those who live in one of the nation’s poorest areas. Year after year, East Carroll Parish ranks among the top 10 U.S. counties with the highest poverty rates. Time magazine once named the town of Lake Providence the “poorest place in America.” Founded in 1983, Panola Pepper began as a wintertime business to give farm workers income during the three-month gap between the planting and harvest seasons.

Through the fall of 2011, the main question facing the American military in Iraq was what our role would be now that combat operations were over. When President Obama announced the end of our combat mission in August 2010, he acknowledged that we would maintain troops for a while. Now that the deadline was upon us, however, it was clear to me—and many others—that withdrawing all our forces would endanger the fragile stability then barely holding Iraq together.

On September 16, President Obama visited the headquarters of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The agency is the lead organization in the federal government´s efforts to prevent the introduction and spread of the Ebola virus into the United States, and Obama used his remarks there to update Americans on those efforts. The chances of an Ebola outbreak in the United States are "extremely low," Obama said. U.S. are working with officials in Africa "to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn´t get on a plane for the United States." And then this: In the

Charlie Sheen isn´t having the best week. The 49-year-old actor is reportedly under investigation for pulling a knife on his dentist while in the chair last Thursday, according to TMZ. Sheen was allegedly under the influence of "rock cocaine" and when the technician tried to give him nitrous oxide ahead of an abscess procedure, he apparently lost it.

Today marks the one-year anniversary for Obamacare’s health exchanges—which have helped more than 7 million people across the country enroll in health coverage. And while Obamacare’s marketplace is settling in for its second year, serious issues are cropping up that could potentially derail the entire health care law leaving millions without affordable health coverage. The first potential problem deals with funding for the law’s crucial risk corridor program, which protects insurers from major losses. Insurers who agree to sell policies on the new exchanges are compensated for if they incur heavy losses during the first few years of Obamacare’s implementation.

I must say, there’s something about the way accused White House intruder Omar Gonzalez is constantly described in the media that bothers me. I keep hearing him called “Army veteran Omar Gonzalez.” It’s true he’s an Army veteran. So I’m not disputing the fact. But I have a little trouble with the relevance. I know there is a cottage industry out there trying to hype up the threat of returning vets as the real source of domestic terrorism (we all remember the DHS-report controversy). But it’s worth noting that Gonzalez’s alleged motivation was to tell the president the atmosphere is

A large section of the Aral Sea has completely dried up for the first time in modern history, according to Nasa. Images from the US space agency’s Terra satellite released last week show that the eastern basin of the Central Asian inland sea – which stretched across Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan and was once the fourth largest in the world – was totally parched in August. Images taken in 2000 show an extensive body of water covering the same area. “This is the first time the eastern basin has completely dried in modern times,” Philip Micklin, a geographer emeritus from Western Michigan University

At least since the early part of the 20th century, aside from oil, the Arab world has produced and exported two products. It has produced essentially no technology, medicine or anything else in the world of science. It has almost no contributions to world literature, art or to intellectual development. According to the most recent United Nations Arab Human Development Reports (2003-2005), written by Arab intellectuals, Greece, with a population of 11 million, annually translates five times more books from English than the entire Arab world, population 370 million. Nor is this a new development. The total number of books translated into

Hispanic community souring on Obama

Hispanic voters were a key part of the coalition that elected President Obama, but lately the demographic has soured on him. Obama’s weekly approval among Hispanics dipped to 45 percent during the period ended Sept. 28, according to Gallup, and it has remained below 50 percent for the past five weeks. While support for Obama is higher among Hispanics than the overall population, the cushion he had is diminishing as he enters the second half of his presidency. In early 2013, around the beginning of his second term, Gallup reported that Hispanic approval of Obama was 74 percent, compared with 51 percent

The Secret Service is a joke. That´s harsh, I know – and it´s unfair to Secret Service agents who unflinchingly risk their lives for the president and for their country. But it´s true, and it needs to be fixed. Here´s how. First, fire director Julia Pierson. Her agency covered up a 2011 incident in which shots were fired at the White House, when one of President Obama´s daughters could have been killed. Her agency allowed a mentally ill Iraq war veteran to rampage through the White House with a knife. Her agency permitted a security contractor with a gun and three

Secret Service managers told agents on the ground in Atlanta not to file a written report after discovering that a convict with a gun rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Sept. 16, according to two sources familiar with the case. The president’s Secret Service protective detail and other agents routinely file written reports if anything even mildly suspicious happens during a presidential trip or in the course of protecting any member of the first family at the White House on any given day.

In educational conversation, when you mention the words “charter schools,” people tend to either love them or hate them. Unfortunately, either way, the handwriting is on the smart board. A recent survey found only 46 of 925 high-poverty New York City public schools, where most students are minorities, had even a meager 50 percent passing rate. That in itself is a big story, but the bigger story here is that of the 46 schools, 23 were charters. Of course, the United Federation of Teachers and UFT-funded parent groups are screaming foul. They say that charters can be selective in their student population by

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where
