Grassroot organizing successful; MSNBC host devastated; Jesse Jackson calls for march on gun dealers; Voter fraud alert; Eric Holder's demand of Florida; Drone takes out #2 in Al Qaida; Counterattack by Iran possible; Why can't they just find another photographer?

[CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WHO AIDED WISCONSIN IN THE EFFORT TO PUSH BACK UNION POWER IN AMERICA!  Is shows what a conservative majority can look like when it enables itself with participation, get-out-the-vote efforts, and education of the voters - what it looks like when conservatives bother to get themselves to the polling booth!  Phone banks were available for those from all over the United States who wished to not stand idly by while our country's most important election since that of Scott Brown was being held.  Onward to November!]

It is true that Walker received more financial support, including from outside the state, than Barrett did. But the lesson to learn is not the truism that money can impact elections; it is that Republicans, conservatives, capitalists, and perhaps even a few libertarians were willing and able to match, and then outmatch the famously deep pockets of Big Labor. Republicans were every bit the equal of Democrats in grassroots organizing, in passion for their candidate, and in influencing independent voters without whom the margin of victory would not have been possible.

A DOJ press release notes that the "City of Milwaukee [is] required to provide assistance in Spanish." It was a cynical ploy to turn out minority voters to cast ballots for the Democrat without having President Obama's fingerprints on what was likely to be a losing effort. And even though Milwaukee is run by Democrats, the DOJ's action smacks of trying to taint a Walker victory with implied racism.  [Republican's 4 Senate seats are too close to call for now.


"In many respects it's to be expected, considering how much money was thrown at this race. You know, NBC is calling it for Walker. Okay, I think it's awful close and there's a lot of absentee ballots yet that are still out and it's going to be very, very close down to the wire" MSNBC's Schultz said.  Ed Schultz concluded the segment by making a wild assertion. "Scott Walker could very well be indicted in the coming days," the MSNBC host said. "So it's going to be really a fight for the Democrats here in November, no question about it," Schultz said.  [Shultz was actually teary-eyed, and he did not attempt to explain just why there might be an indictment.  He just can't believe the tables were turned by the Republicans for once.]


ED SCHULTZ: This is not going to be an easy night for many broadcasters who are liberal. This is not going to be an easy night for this broadcaster. To say that I’m shocked and stunned is pretty much an understatement. But I also think that it is a real warning to Americans that money is now infiltrated into our political system like we have never seen before, and the ruling by Citizens United is now a real message to every American.  [Earth to Ed - were you upset when your beloved President ran a $1 billion dollar campaign to victory in 2008?  All of a sudden it is a bad thing?]
It is going to take an insurmountable amount of effort on the ground for the progressive movement and the Democrats to do what they need to do in 2012. And this is also a real message to local politics that this money will filter down, and Citizens United will affect federal and state elections over time.  
Isn't it amazing that folks like Schultz weren't at all concerned about the money in politics in 2008 when Barack Obama spent more than any candidate in history?

Two nights ago in Racine, Wisconsin, while demanding jobs for the unemployed, Jesse Jackson decided to slam job creating gun dealers and called for a march on gun shops all over the country. 


Top Colorado Democrat Currently Registered to Vote in Both D.C. and Colorado
Time and again, the Holder Justice Department has exhibited politically driven law enforcement. But its latest instance of lawlessness is absolutely brazen. Last week, the Civil Rights Division’s Voting Section sent a letter to the Florida secretary of state, Ken Detzner, ordering him to stop removing voters who are not citizens from Florida’s voter-registration rolls.
According to the letter sent by Voting Section chief Chris Herren, Florida is checking its voter-registration records against state driver’s-license records to identify noncitizens. This shouldn’t have surprised anyone at Justice — after all, Florida is simply following federal law in making such a database comparison. Section 303(a) of the Help America Vote Act of 2002 specifically directs states to coordinate their voter-registration records “with other agency databases within the State” to ensure they are “accurate.” And this is serious business: Making a false claim of citizenship in order to register to vote is a felony under federal law punishable by up to three years in prison.
U.S. officials say a drone strike has killed al-Qaida’s second-in-command.
The death of Abu Yahya al-Libi is a significant blow to the terror network that has lost a string of top leaders since the death of Osama bin Laden last year.
The Democratic chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday expressed worry that leaks to the press about a cyberattack authorized by the Obama administration on Iran could lead to a counterattack on the United States.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) joined other senior Senate Democrats in expressing serious concerns about the leak, which detailed a cyberattack intended to hamper Iran's nuclear program. Some Republicans argue the information was leaked to help President Obama's reelection campaign.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Court Says Gay Rights Trump Religious Rights The New Mexico Court of Appeals has upheld a ruling that a professional photographer who refused to take pictures of a gay couple’s commitment ceremony violated state anti-discrimination laws.
The Albuquerque Journal reports the court agreed on Thursday with a previous ruling, ruling the photo studio is considered public, similar to a restaurant or store.  [Once again, the 4% of our population believes they should control all of us.  Why can't they just look elsewhere for a photographer?  Because they are all about in-our-faces use of their rights.]

  1. Thanks for helping Scott Walker and his agenda win the day ! Your news service helps folks know what is really going on--information the main stream media hides if it does not fit their liberal, left wing views.
