GOVERNMENT DOES NOTHING AS WELL OR ECONOMICALLY AS THE PRIVATE SECTOR

Next Monday, October 27 marks the 50th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s iconic “Time For Choosing” speech. It was a speech that sparked the modern Conservative Movement, ignited a fire in the hearts of conservatives, and launched Ronald Reagan’s public policy career. This week as part of a year-long “Time for Choosing: The Next Generation” initiative, Young America’s Foundation is releasing a series of videos in conjunction with the anniversary of this significant speech. The fourth video focuses on the private sector. Ronald Reagan understood the evils of communism and socialist policies. He knew by diminishing the role of the private...

Why The GOP Prefers Establishment Losers To Tea Party Losers

I’m starting to hear rumblings that, if he wins his Colorado senate race, Rep. Cory Gardner will be the model candidate used by the Republicans as an example for how to win. In some respects this makes sense. Having backed away from the controversial personhood amendment — and now advocating over-the-counter birth control — he has blunted the “war on women” attacks, and seems poised for victory in a tough state. A few years ago, such a shift might have been difficult to maneuver. But instead of being labeled a sellout by conservatives, Gardner is being praised by National Review...

Blog Julio Severo in Portuguese arbitrarily shut down by Google in Brazil

Blog Julio Severo in Portuguese arbitrarily shut down by Google in Brazil By Julio Severo In the first minutes of Thursday, October 23, Blog Julio Severo, established by me, Julio Severo, in 2005 to reach Brazilians with information usually unavailable to them, disappeared from the Internet, with no hacking attack involved. All that was evident, from my careful verification, is that such disappearing was provoked and decided by the owner of the Blogspot service, Google, which freely offers to the international public a free speech platform.

Iowa TV Station Rejects Anti-Republican Ad For Showing Dead Ebola Bodies

Iowa television station KWWL-Waterloo rejected a liberal ad that showed dead and bloody Ebola bodies to illustrate its accusation that Republican-supported budget cuts contributed to the Ebola outbreak. The Agenda Project Action Fund commercial, entitled “Republican Cuts Kill Part II: Joni Ernst Wants to Cut,” targeted Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst and depicted “exposed dead (and sometimes bleeding) bodies,” according to KWWL. The station rejected the ad Thursday after it aired twice on other Iowa stations. The Agenda Project Action Fund, the political arm of activist Erica Payne’s New York-based Agenda Project, played on the Democratic narrative that Republicans...

Battle begins for NRSC chair

The midterm elections aren’t over yet, but that hasn’t stopped early chatter among senators over who will lead the Senate Republican campaign arm for the 2016 cycle. Sens.

Heller has talked about the plum post with Republican lobbyists, according to a source familiar with the conversations. Several Republican sources said that Wicker has expressed interest in taking...

October Surprise: Late-breaking scandal could cost GOP expected South Dakota Senate seat

The largest newspaper in South Dakota broke a story that could cost the GOP a red state Senate seat. The Fiscal Times reports:  The three-way race for South Dakota’s open Senate seat got more complicated Wednesday, when the Sioux Falls Argus Leader published a page one story alleging that former Governor Mike Rounds, the Republican candidate and current leader in the polls, had approved $600,000 in state assistance to a company that was about hire a member of his cabinet. According to reporter David Montgomery, then Secretary of Tourism and State Development Richard Benda requested the assistance for Northern Beef Packers about two...

Another poll shows Cory Gardner ahead in Colorado. Is the seat slipping away from Democrats?

For weeks, Rep. Cory Gardner (R) and Sen. Mark Udall (D) have been statistically tied in polls of the Colorado Senate race, with Gardner in the lead but well within the margin of error. Now a new poll, taken over the last four days, shows Gardner leading by seven points. According to the USA Today/Suffolk University poll, Gardner is at 46 percent to Udall's 39 percent. A September poll from the same pollster had Gardner up by just one, 43-42. Both polls have a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent, meaning neither shows Gardner with what can...

Locked in a dead heat, Shaheen, Brown spar (new poll shows Brown ahead by 1%)

The U.S. Senate candidates sparred in their first televised debate Tuesday as part of a cliff-hanger of a race that could shift the balance of power in Washington. Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen and Republican Scott Brown debated energy, Ebola, immigration, jobs and the economy, national security and health care. They were first asked to share their views of the U.S. response to the threat of Ebola. Brown said the U.S. needs a travel ban. "I'm thankful that Senator Shaheen broke with President Obama in that regard" and decided to support a travel ban, he said.

Late-Breaking Scandal Could Shake Up SD Senate Race

The three-way race for South Dakota’s open Senate seat got more complicated Wednesday, when the Sioux Falls Argus Leader published a page one story alleging that former Governor Mike Rounds, the Republican candidate and current leader in the polls, had approved $600,000 in state assistance to a company that was about hire a member of his cabinet. According to reporter David Montgomery, then Secretary of Tourism and State Development Richard Benda requested the assistance for Northern Beef Packers about two weeks before he and Rounds were to leave office. Benda was about to go to work for a company with...

Has Alison Lundergan Grimes pulled even with Mitch McConnell in Kentucky?

Wednesday Senator McConnell’s race against Democratic opponent Alison Lundergan Grimes looks a bit tighter than it did a few days ago, when we suggested that McConnell might begin measuring for drapes in the Majority Office. For one thing, the latest survey of the Kentucky contest finds McConnell and state Secretary of State Grimes virtually tied. The Bluegrass Poll puts McConnell at 44 percent, and Grimes at 43, with 5 percent for a third party candidate and 8 percent undecided. For another, the Democratic Party and the Grimes campaign are throwing money at ads in what looks like a last-month push...

"Shaheen Lost the Debate

One reporter’s opinion isn’t the end-all, be-all of political analysis. But as a respected, Boston-based reporter, Andy Hiller’s contention that Brown won the debate last night is worth listening to nonetheless. “Shaheen lost the debate because she had to spend so much time on the defensive, explaining the president’s policies on Ebola, Obamacare, ISIS and immigration,” he said. “She was much more effective in the second half when she directly challenged Brown.” “But Brown won,” he continued. “He never looked uncomfortable, he has cable network level communication skills, and in this debate the issues were on his side. He wasn’t...

Oh my: Cory Gardner 46, Mark Udall 39 in Colorado Senate race

You know what this means, don’t you? Right: Colorado’s ripe for the picking by GOP nominee Mitt Romney two years from now. C’mon, it’s been hours since I trolled you guys about Romney 2016. I held out as long as I could.Obama’s currently rocking a robust 40/56 favorable rating in Colorado, a state he won twice. Mark Udall’s rating: Almost identical, of course, at 40/54. There’s a perfect example, actually, of why O is now shouting from the rooftops that Senate Dems are his loyal toadies who’ll go on carrying his water for the next two years if reelected. Nothing’s...

McConnell ad features women attacking female Democratic opponent:

Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell (R) has a new ad in the Kentucky Senate race that zeroes in on the demographic of voters he thinks are mostly likely to be wooed by his opponent, Democratic candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes: Young women. In the ad, young women make the pitch that it is Grimes who looks down on them, by implying they need the government's help to get ahead. "Alison Lundergan Grimes wants me to think that I'm not good enough... That I couldn't get a job, unless Washington passed more laws...That I can't graduate college, without raising your taxes... She...

Ted Cruz Reveals What he’d do if Elected President – And it’s Even Worse Than You Thought

With the midterm elections approaching, Texas senator Ted Cruz penned an editorial in USA Today this week detailing what he’d like a potential Republican-controlled Congress to prioritize in 2015. As you might expect, the list is full of Tea Party staples: repealing Obamacare, cutting taxes, and slashing funding for federal programs. What makes Cruz’s list of Congressional priorities interesting is that it essentially previews what a Cruz 2016 presidential campaign agenda might look like–and it’s not pretty. As Ted Cruz’s multiple trips to Iowa have suggested, Texas’ junior senator is all-but-confirmed to be running for president in 2016. Though his...

ObamaCare Returns as an Election Albatross

Democrats assumed earlier this year that ObamaCare would be a political advantage by Election Day. North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan, for example, said in February she wanted to show the Affordable Care Act “is something whose time is come.” A month later Colorado Sen. Mark Udall said “we did the right thing” in passing the law and told voters he “would do it again,” a response echoed by incumbents Mark Pryor (Arkansas) and Mary Landrieu (Louisiana). It isn’t working out that way. As the election nears, ObamaCare is re-emerging as a major liability for the Democratic Senate that passed it....

Oregon Secretary of State's Office investigating Sheriff Mike Winters

Medford, Ore.-- The Oregon Secretary of State's Office said Tuesday they're investigating Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters. They said a complaint was filed this month about incorrect information in the Jackson County Election voter's pamphlet. Spokesman for the Secretary of State's Office, Tony Green, could not go into detail about what information they are investigating. Green said if the allegations are true, Sheriff Mike Winters could face felony charges. "There needs to be an establishment of intent. 'Did the person intend to put false information and deceive the voter?' That's an important element of any criminal charge. It's not just...

Dish Drops CNN, Several Other Turner Networks (CNN gone)

After failing to come to terms with Turner on a new deal, Dish Network has dropped CNN, Cartoon Network, truTV and TCM, among others. "Despite our best efforts, we were unable to reach an agreement with Dish Network, and they have unilaterally decided to pull CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, truTV, TCM, HLN, CNN en Espanol and Boomerang off the air upon the expiration of our current deal," Turner said in a statement. "Turner has worked diligently for months to come to a fair agreement including multiple extensions and compromises, and it’s unfortunate that Dish is once again operating in...

Mike Lee Touts Col. Rob Maness in Louisiana Because of Conservative Reform Agenda

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) spoke highly of Tea Party-backed Col. Rob Maness in Louisiana on Tuesday, saying he is "surging" in the state’s three-way election there due to his backing of the conservative reform agenda Lee has been pushing. Lee was talking about conservative Republicans nationwide who are running on positive, big picture ideas like he’s been fighting for in his four years in the U.S. Senate. Lee wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday: A new generation of Republican candidates are finding success by directly addressing Americans’ concerns and running on a conservative reform agenda. The American people aren’t...

Nationalizing the Election Works: The Proof is in North Carolina

CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie keeps telling the GOP establishment that Republicans never win a big election unless they nationalize the issues – that means drawing a clear contrast with the Democrats and giving the voters “a tune they can whistle” on big conservative themes. And in 2014 the big issues are no amnesty for illegal aliens and border security, protecting America from radical Muslims and other national security threats and ending the culture of lies, lawlessness and corruption with which Obama has poisoned our government. The Republican establishment and its insider clique of Washington-based political consultants prefers to run content-free...

Studies Show GOP Can Win Elections Opposing Amnesty in 2014: Impact of Latino Vote Overrated

Despite the incessant lectures from the mainstream press, establishment Republican politicians, and consultants about the need to pass amnesty legislation to appeal to Hispanic voters, two recent studies of the Latino electorate suggest that Republicans can oppose amnesty and still win elections in the midterms and beyond. A Pew Hispanic Research study found that though a record 25.2 million Latinos (11 percent of eligible voters nationwide) are eligible to vote in the 2014 midterm elections, "in many states with close Senate and gubernatorial races this year, Latinos make up a smaller share of eligible voters." In fact, in the "eight...

Supporting FRee Republic ~ October 2014

Disclaimer: I am not a member of the "FR fundraising committee". I just wanted to challenge my "RED" blooded Marylanders to pony up to keep Free Republic going. I noticed that Maryland is moving up in the total donations chart. We are now #6 over VA @ #10, which is encouraging, BUT, CA is #2. WTH? Are we more liberal than CA? I know we're not as wealthy as most Californians, but come on Marylanders, show your determination to make a change.Give $1, $2, $5, or $10 to help Jim get the facts out.

Democratic turnout flyer: ‘If you want to prevent another Ferguson…’

The Democratic effort to pump up the African-American vote in Georgia just took an interesting turn. A reader has sent us this early-voting turnout mailer sent out by the Georgia Democratic party that focuses on the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Mo. It contains an interesting line that concedes the problem of low interest among black voters: “If we want a better, safer future for our children, it’s up to us to vote for change. The choices may not always be perfect, but the cost of inaction is simply too great.” Here’s a complete look: And...
