Tea party group weighs backing
Brown in N.H. Senate fight

Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/23/2014 5:55:16 AM

The leaders of national tea party group are in New Hampshire meeting with the candidates running for the U.S. Senate and weighing whether to support former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown — or one of his rivals for the GOP nomination — ahead of the Senate primary next month. Sal Russo, co-founder of Tea Party Express, and Andrew Surabian, the group’s political director, met with the candidates Thursday and Friday in New Hampshire and are considering whether to take sides before the state’s Sept. 9 primary. Taylor Budowich, executive director of Tea Party Express, told The Washington Times that it is possible that

This so-called Tea Party leader pals around with Grover Norquist and editorializes in favor of open borders.

Best I can tell Scott Brown is NOT a Conservative. I think the strongest Republican should be backed by all who want to gain control of the Senate....

The "Buckley Rule" is to elect the most electable acceptable conservative. Apparently there is former Senator Robert C. Smith in the Republican Primary. He was defeated by John Sununu in the 2002 Primary. Is he electable? We will find out in the Primary.

This race has to be watched for Democrat mischief. It is an Open Primary State and they may try to "muddy up" Scott Brown as well as cross over to support one of his opponents. Democrat PAC´s are already working against him.

Let the Primary happen and let the voters pick their nominee. However, giving money to Mr. Russo and his group is a fool´s errand.

Why is it always the conservatives who have to compromise?
Why not try running a REAL conservative,not a fake.
Of course the last time that was tried,it resulted in a landslide R victory(1984,1996).
Its almost as if the progs,err RINOs do not want to win.

"The "Buckley Rule" is to elect the most electable acceptable conservative."

Amen!

The truth is .... A fire breathing small government conservative can not win in solidly blue states. Likewise, an honest Marxist cant win in a solid red state. In fact, if democrats were honest on the campaign trail, they would win fewer elections than they do.

Brown is a decent man. And while I don´t agree with him on everything, I agree with him far more often than I agree with his opponents.

Some voters . . ., too MANY republican voters think no deeper about their politicians than sports fans think about their teams -- "why don´t they bench Martin McGoo!," they shout, "and send in Josie? It´s all about winning, and nothing more. Even Limbaugh, back in the early Bush era, advocated that attitude

I´ve challenged several Ldotters to explain their reasoning for supporting some politician or cause, only to get vague "figure it out for yourselves," sarcastic remarks, or nothings in return for my efforts (which verifies their lack of thinking through their positions).

And #3, Buckley was WRONG on that particular bit of advice -- Buckley, like Babe Ruth, hit ´er out of the park many times, but like Ruth, he struck out at times, too.

If I was NH voter and it was a choice between Brown and Shaheen, I´d vote for Brown, I´d donate to him and I´d likely volunteer. He may not be perfect, but his election in 2010 did stop the DISCLOSE Act. Coakley would have voted for it and it would be the law of the land. In 2016 if McCain, my senator, has a conservative challenger I´ll support him or her.

Buckley´s advice was to vote for the most conservative ELECTABLE candidate, which in this case would be Brown. Smith doesn´t know what party he belongs to and can´t make up his mind whether he wants to be senator from New Hampshire or Florida.

If you are against the "Buckley Rule", do you vote for the most conservative despite electability? Right now, all that matters is 51 Senate seats. That´s fine for your conscience but not a way to win a Senate Seat in NH and taking over the Committee Chairmanships in the Senate and displacing Harry Reid. Did you ever think that Chuck Schumer may count on that behavior? Assuage your conscience if you must but vote against Shaheen in the general and if Brown is the nominee you can say you didn´t vote for him.

But I´ll say to you, as I used to caution my children when they stood at my knees, and ask questions -- Remember, I´m telling you what I truly think, I would say, but I can be wrong. The greatest gift one can give their children is the encouragement to think for themselves.

I resent the use of "groups" using the Tea Party label to legitimize their trying to influence voters. There is no organized tea party as such, it represents all views who oppose the current enemies of our State. If they are Conservatives or Libertarians they should say so.

How Ebola Compares to

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk. As reported by Breitbart.com, “A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI)report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1 percent

How sympathetic do you think that IRS agent would be? But when it comes to the IRS itself, this is just what officials would have us believe. Turns out too it’s not just Lois Lerner, whose computer crashed right after Congress asked for info about the tax targeting of conservative organizations. Now we’re learning of another case where hard drives holding information that would help tell us what the IRS was up to have

In a letter to Gov.

He added: "It is my concern that these assertions have become a distraction from the great record of this administration." Hours later, the department´s deputy chief counsel, Glenn Parno,

A convert to Islam who named himself Jah’Keem Yisrael (formerly Alton Alexander Nolen) beheaded one of his coworkers and was shot while trying to behead another on September 26 at his place of work, Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma. Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

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.

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

After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
