Finding Al Franken
National Journal, by Josh Kraushaar

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/28/2014 5:37:03 AM

ST. PAUL, Minn.—I flew to Minnesota with high hopes of talking with Sen. Al Franken, and his staff said I´d get my chance during a "media availability" following a speech on the 50th anniversary of the Job Corps. But when I arrived at the Hubert H. Humphrey Job Corps Center, I discovered I was the only reporter there, and Franken´s deputy communications director—one of three of his staffers working the event—said that the senator was in a rush. Could I walk and talk on the way out? So as we walked through the gymnasium outside toward the campus´s small parking

The dum-dum Republicans allowed this super dum-dum to steal a senate seat. He is an embarrassment to the country and the human race. All efforts should be made to send him back to the circus!!

In Minnesota, we are up against a Soros "Secretary of State Project" installed Secretary of State: Mark Ritchie. He is also a former community organizer just like B.O.
As a nation,what have we been able to to do stop the scofflaw?

Our speech slurring governor, Mark Dayton Target stores heir, is also a Soros puppet.

I´ve never understood Minn. voters. To me the state should be a red one by a comfortable margin.If I´m not mistaken they´re the only state that voted for McGovern who bragged about raising taxes on the morons who supported him. Franklin has no business in the senate and makes a mockery of the institution.

Norm Coleman was a fine man and senator and didn´t deseerve to lose to this crackpot.

Norm Coleman should be senator of Minnosota today. Once again the fraud in this race was remarkable and the Governor at that time would not order an investigation (Tim Pawlenty). Al Franken is a disgrace but so was the republican governor Tim Pawlenty who turned his back on Norm Coleman.

I see the blame-the-Minnesota-Republicans idiots have crawled out from under their rocks. As usual they throw their slimy accusations that MN GOP ´allowed´ Franken to steal the election. These mental midgets never offer a single legal step the MN GOP could have done following the voting that would have changed the outcome of the election. They argued ever issue in court. The governor obeyed the law and certified the election after the court incorrectly ruled in Franken´s favor. But no, we still get treated to the droolers who scream we should have ´fought harder´. Derp derp derp. I´m tired of your incoherent, moronic abuse.

Massachusetts was the only state to vote for McGovern. My first Presidential vote was for Nixon. Could not vote for an idiot, however, between Jesse Ventura and Al Franken the voters of Minnesota have embarrassed themselves and it´s time to turn that around. Please don´t let them steal another one this time!

Then there are those who would like you to think that all Minnesotans speak with one voice. That they all vote in lockstep.

Here, instead, are the facts. The half who voted for Franken did not embarrass themselves, because they´re too stupid to be embarrassed. The other half, who voted for Coleman, have nothing to be embarrassed about.

The no-collar third who Voted for old Scruff Face Ventooorah on a goof are, similarly, too stupid to be embarrassed.

I wish that those who like to defame all Minnesota voters would go back to some hobby more in line with their aptitude, such as stepping on ants.

The unbearable lightness of Hillary, 2016

The rule is always to first do no damage. If, however, there is such a thing as being too cautious, her inevitableness Hillary Clinton may be flirting with that condition as her long march to the Democratic nomination continues. The unease over Clinton’s candidacy on the left continues to grow, and it is a phenomenon which has become inescapably obvious to those following the nascent presidential race. While polls suggest that Clinton remains the prohibitive favorite to become the next Democratic presidential standard-bearer, those political reporters who tout top lines without noting the left’s unabashed dissatisfaction with Clinton are flirting with

Legal Case for War Makes No Sense

Obama is trying to argue the group is the “true inheritor of bin Laden” in order to legally justify the war. Just don´t tell al Qaeda, which booted ISIS in February. The White House and senior members of the Obama administration have been trying to convince Congress all week that, legally speaking, there’s no difference between ISIS and al Qaeda. But at the same time—and, often, in the very same classified briefings—members of the U.S. intelligence community are telling lawmakers that the two Islamic radical groups aren’t in cahoots at all. In fact, they’re competitors for supremacy in the global jihadist

Greg Abbott launches first
negative TV ad against Wendy Davis

AUSTIN — Greg Abbott’s campaign launched a new attack on Democratic rival Wendy Davis’ ethics Thursday, saying she voted on legislation as a state senator that personally benefited her business. A new 30-second TV ad airing statewide marks a political escalation by the Abbott campaign, which has largely ignored Davis in its TV ad campaign and instead focused on the Republican attorney general’s platform and personal story. While Davis has targeted Abbott relentlessly on TV, Abbott’s ads until now have been an effective contrast, signaling to his Republican base that he’s in good shape. In the ad, an announcer accuses Davis of

The show trial is underway and the guilty verdict is guaranteed, as a United Nations panel makes a pretense of investigating human rights violations in the 50-day war between Israel and Hamas. To his severe discredit, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has sanctioned a proceeding whose transparent rigging would be at home in a totalitarian regime. Israel is, of course, the defendant going down the tubes. Hamas started the conflict by firing thousands of rockets indiscriminately into the Jewish state from heavily populated areas of Gaza, and prolonged the suffering by violating ceasefire after ceasefire that Israel honored. While each Hamas rocket was

Perpetual second fiddle Joe Biden

Joseph R. Biden’s 2016 presidential ambitions already look like they have been swallowed whole by the Hillary Rodham Clinton juggernaut, but political analysts say the vice president still has a narrow path to victory — one that depends on either out-politicking the former first lady in crucial states such as Iowa or praying she makes a grave mistake. Mr. Biden and Mrs. Clinton both visited Iowa, home of the first caucuses in the presidential primary cycle, over the past week. Neither has declared a White House run in two years, but each seemed to be courting the Democratic foot soldiers necessary

Replacing Obamacare Saves a Lot of Money
National Review Online, by James Capretta    Original Article

Supporters of the Obama administration like to create the impression that there is no viable alternative to the Affordable Care Act — i.e., Obamacare. But that is demonstrably not true. Republican senators Richard Burr, Tom Coburn, and Orrin Hatch introduced a plan earlier this year that would cover just as many people with insurance as Obamacare at a fraction of the cost. Now we have confirmation, in the form of a new cost estimate, that a similarly constructed but slightly different proposal would also cost less, while covering nearly the same number of people. The plan, developed and promoted by the 2017

The Anti-Terrorism Bloviators
American Spectator, by Betsy McCaughey    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/19/2014 5:16:03 AM     Post Reply
On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo sounded the alarm about the escalating danger of a terrorist attack on America by ISIS and other jihadists. Too bad the Obama administration lacks the resolve or sense of urgency to meet this danger head on. Worse, political correctness is hindering New York, a likely target, from tracking and stopping the jihadists in our midst. Holder announced “pilot programs” to “raise awareness,” bringing together religious leaders, community leaders, and law enforcement to build “community partnerships.” Sounds heartwarming. The White House will also hold a

Emails sent by liberal activists and obtained by The Hill reveal significant dissatisfaction with Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. The critical messages about the former first lady show that she has a long way to go to assuage skepticism from influential voices on the left. The Hill reviewed hundreds of emails from a progressive members only Google group called the “Gamechanger Salon,” a forum where nearly 1,500 activists, strategists and journalists debate issues and craft messaging campaigns. The group includes prominent Democrats, Sierra Club officials, journalists who work for The Huffington Post and The Nation magazine, senior

The Strategy That Might

he New York Times on Wednesday carried a provocative front-page dispatch from Kentucky by Abby Goodnough, who’s been doing a superb job of covering the impact of the Affordable Care Act in the Bluegrass State as a window into the law’s import nationally. The piece captures the political dynamic in Kentucky, where Obamacare has slashed the rate of the uninsured from 20.4 percent to 11.9 percent, the second largest drop after Arkansas, but where this success is seemingly not redounding to the benefit of Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is now lagging in the polls against Mitch McConnell.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

It is becoming increasingly clear that almost no one in the press believes that the nearly 1,700 American service men and women currently in Iraq (a number even The New York Times believes will balloon in short order) will not encounter armed resistance. On Thursday, when White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest was asked how Americans who are asked to serve in what Gen. Martin Dempsey called a “combat advisory role” alongside indigenous forces would react if they were fired upon, Earnest replied with the obvious (via The Washington Times): President Obama expects U.S. troops to return fire if Islamic State militants

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run.

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
