We have previously discussed how Barack Obama has become the president that Richard Nixon always wanted to be. From his Administration’s comprehensive attack on privacy and civil liberties, investigation of journalists, to his claim of unilateral authority to kill citizens, Obama has created an Imperial Presidency that could haunt this nation for generations. He has succeeded with the silent acquiescence of many liberals and Democrats who have embraced personality over principle in continuing to support his Administration. Now, a new report documents how the National Security Agency under Obama has been gathering records of online sexual activity and evidence of visits to pornographic websites to be used as part of a proposed plan to harm the reputations of people consider radicals. The obvious comparison to Nixon is only dwarfed by the comparison to J. Edgar Hoover, but again the silence is deafening from the Democrats.
Matt Bevin gave an interview in which he claims that republican voters are ready to sweep McConnell out of office because he hasn't fought hard enough against Obamacare. He also claims that there is a tidal wave of support building for him. McConnell sees things quite differently and issued this reply:
“Mitch McConnell was leading the fight against Obamacare while Matt Bevin was lying on his bailout application and pretending to be an MIT alum,” McConnell spokeswoman Allison Moore said. [Joe Gerth via NKY.com]
Let's look at this.
First, Bevin is emboldened by a small group of disgruntled fanatics who act out on their hatred of anybody already in office, particularly republicans in office, by falling for the first guy to come along and pander to their seething discontent. They do not represent the larger republican community.
Second, Bevin cannot compete financially with McConnell, although he can be enough of a nusiance to make McConnell spend money which though it might seem like a waste of November resources really isn't. In fact, Bevin will make McConnell do only one thing that Mitch doesn't like to do, spend money early. Then again, for Mitch's sake this could be a good thing. The early he reminds folks what he has done for Kentucky, the less likely they will be to give money to the democrat.
Third, Bevin is running statewide, not just in a few Northern Kentucky counties where the TEA party has out worked the rank and file GOP and has a foothold of power.
Fourth, Bevin is virtually unknown, which makes all "interviews" with him by the liberal media so revealing. The liberal media in Kentucky (and the United States for that matter) would like nothing more than to see the end of McConnell. Bevin is one more liberal weapon in that battle.
Fifth, does anybody with a lick of sense really think that Bevin or Grimes have any chance at being more successful in navigating the complicated mine field of the United States Senate than Mitch McConnell? If so it might be time for you to put down the bong and step away from the Chee-tos.
The tag team of Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul have brought great pride to Kentucky. Neither of Mitch's opponents can hold a candle to these guys and neither will likely win. In fact, the appearance of 90 year old Gurley Martin in the race is a far more interesting development than Bevin's blustery claim that he is riding a wave of angered support.
Put your money on McConnell. The others are just a distraction.
Mabel Fletcher, 64, was sleeping when her dog woke her with a forewarning bark. She scrambled in the dark for the 9 mm handgun that she keeps in the nightstand next to her bed. As Fletcher retrieved her firearm, a woman she did not know came into her bedroom. The woman advanced threateningly, so Fletcher fired. The woman continued to act erratically and throw things at Fletcher, including an ironing board. Fletcher described the incident, “She was wild. I didn’t want to shoot her, but I didn’t want to get hurt. I told her to stop, but she kept coming at me.” Fletcher fired a second time, but the woman lunged at her once again. Fletcher fired a third and final time, causing the intruder to flee through a window. The intruder was later arrested and is facing charges including aggravated burglary, drug abuse, possession of drug abuse instruments and criminal trespass. (The Enquirer, Middletown, OH, 9/5/13)
Having read the Lexington Paper for many years I was at first surprised to read what appeared to be a relatively fair comment on the efforts of McConnell and Grimes to "woo" women voters. The paper began with a hard look at Grimes' and ended with a warning for McConnell. But on further analysis it turns out that they were really only up to their old tricks.
On the surface their comment might appear to be an attempt to warn Grimes that she could be making a huge mistake by whining about the "Obama Girl" photo I posted a few days ago.
In early September 2008, just days after Republican presidential nominee John McCain announced then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, a group of high-profile GOP women called a news conference at the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul.
Carly Fiorina and U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., ripped into the assembled media for their sexist approach toward Palin...
America had its say, and Palin built a strong and loyal following. But on Nov. 4, 2008, exit polls showed that 60 percent of voters said Palin was not qualified to be president if the need arose.
Like Palin, Grimes has a lot of work to do to satisfy voters' questions about where she stands on the issues.
Last week, Grimes and her Democratic supporters expressed outrage after the National Republican Senatorial Committee promoted a picture of Grimes' head on the body of Amber Lee Ettinger, the so-called "Obama girl."
It's up to individual women to decide whether they were offended, but how much stronger would her hand have been had she been a forceful voice this summer when state Rep. John Arnold, D-Sturgis, was accused of sexually harassing three women staffers?
The GOP counter-attack persisted through the election.[Kentucky.com]
Okay, so they didn't give me direct credit for raising that issue in the first place by my series of posts on Grimes, but that's okay, at least they made my points, again.
After this tepid warning to Grimes they went on next to warn Mitch that he better watch his peezencues.
In Hillary Clinton's 2000 New York State Senate run, [Rick] Lazio, a Republican, walked from his podium to Clinton's, demanding that she sign a pledge against using so-called soft money in the campaign.
The Clinton campaign had been preparing the soil for a while, and it was ready to use the incident to turn Lazio's claims of strength into a charge of bullying. When he stepped away from his podium, Lazio might as well have stepped out of the race. The media and the campaign seized on the move as an example of his bullying, aggressive demeanor.
If McConnell takes one step in that direction, he is likely to find a backlash he has not seen before. Folks who decry and debate double standards, as McConnell's campaign did last week, usually have plenty of time to make their points after they've lost in November. [Kentucky.com]
While the warning to Mitch might sound a bit like fair play in reality they have taken a stand in favor of the successful use of fake outrage by Hillary and warned Mitch that in the future they will likely side with Alison and her use of the democratic playbook tactic of "-ism" politics.
Barack Obama was able to shame his critics by accusing them of "racism". This year, and moving into 2016, women democrats are trying to play the same game only this time with charges of "sexism."
The Lexington publication didn't come right out and say it, but when using the examples of two prominent women, Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, they seem to have endorsed Hillary's success at "ism" politics and denounced Sarah's attempts to call out critics who have lampooned her unmercifully in much more offensive ways than walking across a stage and asking politely for a signature.
Sure, the editorial looks fair on the surface, but in the end, and once again, the LHL is the one applying a double standard.
As my father always taught me, if anyone lies to you ever, you can never trust anything they say in the future because you will never know when they might lie again. After all the lies from the Obama administration, why should we trust what John Kerry says about the Iranian nuclear deal. Answer: we shouldn't.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran will continue its nuclear enrichment program, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said after five days of marathon talks between Iran and the six world powers led to the endorsement of a deal early on Sunday.
“The (nuclear) program has been recognized and the Iranian people’s right to use the peaceful nuclear technology based on the NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty) and as an inalienable right has been recognized and countries are necessitated not to create any obstacle on its way,” Zarif said in a press conference in Geneva on Sunday.
“The (nuclear) program will continue and all the sanctions and violations against the Iranian nation under the pretext of the nuclear program will be removed gradually,” he added.
He said the next six months will be a serious start towards “the full removal of all UN Security Council, unilateral and multilateral sanctions, while the country’s enrichment program will be maintained." "Production of 5-percent-enriched uranium will continue in the country similar the past,” Zarif continued.
“None of the enrichment centers will be closed and Fordo and Natanz will continue their work and the Arak heavy water program will continue in its present form and no material (enriched uranium stockpiles) will be taken out of the country and all the enriched materials will remain inside the country. The current sanctions will move towards decrease, no sanctions will be imposed and Iran’s financial resources will return,” he continued.
“I hope that we can reach the goals designed by the Supreme Leader (Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei) and constantly pursued by the Iranian nation with solidarity and sympathy and consensus," he said. [FARS]
And now it has been revealed that the USA was secretly meeting with Iran without telling our ally Israel.
So as you watch and listen to the Obama administration celebrate this "achievement" remember how many times they have lied to us in the past before you believe in the fairy tale this time.
