Michelle Nunn ‘Partnered
With Lobbyists’ in Land Deal

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/14/2014 5:53:52 PM

Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn partnered with D.C. lobbyists in a multi-million dollar land deal in 2004, according to America Rising. The deal was revealed by the Atlanta Journal Constitution, which reported on a leaked memo of vulnerabilities from Nunn’s campaign. Nunn has been decrying lobbyists and their influence on the campaign trail despite securing a multi-million dollar deal and taking $120,000 from lobbyists this cycle. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution: In 2004, Nunn, her father, four-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Sam Nunn, local builder Michael Wilson and two Washington lobbyists who used to work for Sam Nunn -

Michelle Nunn could become another Mary Landrieu.

I admit Michelle Nunn is a more attractive candidate and better person than David Perdue - and that I might even be prouder to have her represent my state. Does that mean I would vote for her? No way and it´s hard to believe any "good L-Dotter" would either.

All right thinking Georgians revered her father. And she is clearly his daughter, which is why I wouldn´t mind so much if she won. I understand how it would be unthinkable for her, based on family and tradition, to change parties. And as a Democrat she will surely be voting with them on many if not most issues. On the other hand, if she wins maybe she can be a much needed force for good on that side.

How I wish that Kingston had won. It will not be easy for me to persuade my hand to tap that wand for David Perdue, lobbyists or no lobbyists. I think he´s a jerk.

A 51st-state fantasy
Washington Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/13/2014 5:41:42 AM     Post Reply
Senate Democrats who are anxious about their re-election prospects in November are puzzled that Sen. Thomas R. Carper of Delaware, a Democrat, is pushing the fantasy of statehood for the District of Columbia so close to the November elections. His Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold a hearing Monday on his bill to add two members to the Senate and a voting member of to the House. It’s understandable that the Democrats want to add to their membership, since the District, the Valhalla of the bureaucracy, will be in Democratic hands approximately forever. But Vincent C.

Cruz-ing with Christians

By now, the video’s gone viral: Sen. Ted Cruz walking off the stage after being booed for speaking in support of Israel at a Washington summit dedicated to the defense of the Middle East’s persecuted Christian minorities. On just about every level, the episode is sad, especially if it’s used to sharpen divisions among people who have much to gain from coming together. In fact, the whole aim of In Defense of Christians — host of the conference where Cruz spoke — is to unite the disparate Mideast religious communities in solidarity with the Christian victims of Islamist extremism. That’s no easy task. Cruz

Obama´s Spin Can´t Keep Up

At a Labor Day rally in Milwaukee, President Obama turned the limelight on himself, approvingly and inaccurately. “By almost every measure,” he declared, “the American economy and the American workers are better off than when I took office.” In contrast to Mr. Obama’s self-congratulatory assertion, the Census Bureau reports that median household income in the United States, adjusted for inflation, is down by more than $2,000 since Obama’s first inauguration in January 2009. Additionally, as an indicator of the economic downturn, a sixth of the U.S. population is currently receiving food stamps, an increase in the participation rate in the

Abbott: Davis book

AUSTIN -- A dispute over Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis´ book tour intensified Thursday as her Republican opponent, Greg Abbott, accused her in a formal complaint of violating state election laws. In a filing with the Texas Ethics Commission, Abbott campaign manager Wayne Hamilton alleges that Davis, a state senator from Fort Worth, "converted political contributions to her personal use" in violation of state law. The state ethics commission investigates alleged ethics violations by officeholders and candidates, and can levy fines or refer charges against violators if complaints are validated. In December 2013, the commission publicly condemned political campaigns´ use

“The constitutional amendment before us,” Harry Reid said Tuesday, describing a proposal to give federal and state governments the authority to regulate political giving, “isn’t about limiting free speech.” Harry Reid, may I present the American Civil Liberties Union. I am sure you two have met before. Writing in June that the nonprofit “strongly opposes” the so-called Udall amendment, the ACLU’s Laura Murphy and Gabriel Rottman called the Democratic proposal “deceptively complex,” “unnecessary,” “redundant of existing law,” “dangerous for liberties,” “vague,” “overbroad,” “exceedingly dangerous to democratic processes,” and “the first time the amendatory process has been used to directly limit specifically enumerated

Sorry, Obama Fans: Reagan
Did Better on Jobs and Growth
Forbes, by Kyle Smith    Original Article

Supporters of President Barack Obama, such as one of his campaign donors Robert Deitrick, an Ohio financial advisor often quoted in Forbes and elsewhere, insist that the Obama economy has been much more robust than Ronald Reagan’s. Are they right? Let’s look at some numbers. President Reagan entered office in a period of high inflation which was stamped out by high interest rates that in turn led to the 1982 recession. His job-creation record after that may fairly be termed outstanding: nearly 20 million more Americans were employed when he left office than when the recession ended. Overall, including the recession

Portman: Four Things a GOP
Senate Could Do Quickly

Sen. Rob Portman (R.,Ohio), trying to counter Democrats’ painting of the GOP as a party of “no,” said Thursday that he believed there were at least four things that the Senate could approve quickly if Republicans take control of the Senate this fall. Ticking them off in a breakfast with reporters sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Mr. Portman identified these areas of “common ground:” 1. The Keystone XL pipeline. Support for the pipeline has been growing among red-state Democrats and when a nonbinding measure endorsing the project came to a vote in March 2013, the vote was 62-37 with 27

9/11 Truthers Are Even
Dumber Than You Think
Daily Caller, by W. James Antle, III    Original Article

Much has changed in the thirteen years since America was attacked. At least one thing has remained constant: the stupidity and futility of 9/11 truthers. The truthers don’t believe men with ties to an Islamist terror group hijacked airplanes and flew them into the twin towers or the Pentagon. In some cases, they don’t believe planes hit these buildings at all. At minimum, they maintain the government orchestrated or at least permitted the attacks. Writing about such bizarre conspiracy theorists may seem like an easy lay-up for a columnist, much like denouncing child molesters or praising puppies. Is it really worth it to

If you’ve been keeping up with the news, it’s clear that if you want to punch out your girlfriend and avoid jail time, Atlantic County, N.J., is the place to do it. On Friday, in a courtroom in Pretoria, South Africa, we’re about to find out if that country is the place to go if you want to put four bullets through a bathroom door and kill her.

Obama Meets With Hezbollah-
Supporting Cleric on 9/11

President Barack Obama and White House national security adviser Susan Rice met with a delegation of Christian Middle Eastern leaders in Washington, D.C., on Thursday that included at least one Hezbollah-supporting Lebanese cleric. The meeting came one day after Sen. Ted Cruz was booed off the stage for defending Israel while giving a keynote address at a conference for the same delegation of Christian leaders. The In Defense of Christians summit, which was aimed at raising awareness of persecution against Arab Christiansa, featured speeches by several Hezbollah supporters and some of Bashar Al-Assad’s most vocal Christian allies.

Former President George W. Bush marked the 13th anniversary of 9/11 by speaking at a luncheon in Cleveland, where he voiced regret that the terrorist attacks turned him into a "wartime president." Appearing at a fundraiser for Cuyahoga County Community College, Bush offered up recollections from that fateful day in September 2001, which he began in Florida reading a storybook to schoolchildren. Repeating a story he has told frequently, Bush said he and his team initially thought the first plane that hit the north tower of the World Trade Center was an accident, according to WKYC: Minutes later, an aide informed him

In a stunning turnaround, the Obama administration is arguing that a law authorizing a war on al Qaeda be used to justify strikes on al Qaeda’s foes. President Obama’s new war against ISIS is off to a shaky legal start. Obama’s using the law that authorized attacks against al Qaeda to justify his new fight in Syria and Iraq. One small problem: ISIS and al Qaeda are at each others’ throats. Legal experts were shocked to learn Wednesday that the Obama administration wants to rely on that 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force against al Qaeda for the new ISIS war. “On

A majority of the Palin family — Sarah, Todd, Bristol, and Track — was allegedly involved in a booze-filled brawl over the weekend in which the former vice presidential candidate reportedly screamed, “Don’t you know who I am?” According to reports from local bloggers, the Palin crew showed up at a party in Wasilla following a day at the Iron Dog snowmobile race. According to local blogger Amanda Coyne, witnesses at the scene said Palin’s eldest son, Track, showed up to the party in a stretch Hummer. He then confronted a man who had previously dated one of his sisters,

Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) said in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon that the “hatred and bigotry” he encountered when he was booed off the stage at a Middle Eastern Christian conference for defending Israel on Wednesday night was like nothing he has previously seen in his political career. “I’ve certainly encountered audiences that disagreed with a particular point of view. But this virulent display of hatred and bigotry was remarkable, and considerably different from anything I’ve previously encountered,” Cruz said, just a few hours after his pro-Israel speech to the In Defense of Christians conference was drowned

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage, according to CBS Los Angeles. Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days.

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion. "No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of [the Islamic State´s] victims

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.

The former Alaska governor’s daughter Bristol even allegedly threw punches and son Track ripped his shirt off in anger and flipped the bird in the Saturday melee, according to the reports.
