Why Democrats Are Ditching the 'War on Women' Rhetoric

Democrats want to talk about "personhood" and reproductive freedom. They want to tell voters about a stubborn pay gap and women hurt by a low minimum wage. But what they don't want to do is talk about a "war on women." Indeed, the party that so effectively deployed the "war" rhetoric to help defeat Mitt Romney in 2012 has now sworn off its catch phrase, dropping it almost completely from a campaign strategy that, in so many other ways, is still very much about women's issues. "[Saying] 'Republicans are waging a war on women' actually doesn't test very well," said...

Mark Levin: 'Clean Out' GOP Leadership or Country Will 'Unravel'

On his Thursday show, talk radio host Mark Levin argued that the leadership of the Republican Party must be replaced if conservatives are to prevent the country from declining. He declared, “If we do not clean out the current leadership in the Republican Party ... the country’s going to continue to unravel, the Republican Party too.” He blasted “neo-statists” who claim to be conservatives, but “would have conservatives abandon the high ground of the Founding principles for the quicksand of a soft tyranny.” And named Michael Gerson, Karl Rove, Jeb Bush, George Bush, John Boehner, and Mitch McConnell as “non-conservatives...

NRSC Chairman Says Republicans Could Flip Up To 14 Senate Seats

WASHINGTON — The chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee said Thursday that the likelihood Republicans win back the Senate is better today than when he assumed leadership in 2012. During a luncheon with reporters, Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said: “Back in the very beginning, I would’ve told you we had six good candidates in six states.” Now, Moran said, the number of races where Republicans could pick up seats from Democrats has expanded to somewhere in the range of 12 to 14 states. Republicans need to flip six states to win...

Why Lamar Alexander is in Trouble

Along with popular conservative radio hosts like Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham coming out against him, the fundamental reasons why Senator Lamar Alexander may lose to Joe Carr in the upcoming primary are detailed in this Weekly Standard item. Not only is his being labeled a so called RINO or squish by Conservatives appropriate, he's now on the wrong side of today's hot button issue - immigration reform. If such a sentiment exists, some numbers might help explain it. Alexander’s lifetime American Conservative Union rating is 76 out of 100, with a 60 rating for the 2013 legislative year. Heritage...

Flip-Flop: Pat Roberts Campaign Manager was for Debates Until he was Against Them

For Pat Roberts executive campaign manager Leroy Towns, political debates are important. At least until your candidate doesn’t want to debate. Are debates important to the political process? According to a former North Carolina University journalism professor, the answer is yes, debates are very important: Leroy Towns, political journalism professor at UNC, said debates are very important in the political process. “Debates give people a chance to look at candidates close up and see how they act under pressure situations,” Towns said. (Libertarian candidate Michael Beitler kept from debate, Daily Tarheel, September 13, 2010) Fast forward four years. As executive...

Get Pat Roberts out

In 1952, when Dwight Eisenhower was elected president, Wes Roberts, Pat’s father, the chairman of the Republican Party in Kansas, promoted a legislative act to pay the AOUW Insurance Company $115,000 for a building which had been erected on the Norton County TB sanatorium grounds on state land.

GOP committee boosts Roberts over Wolf in Kansas Senate race

TOPEKA – A national Republican group has contributed $45,400 to Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts in his GOP primary race against tea party challenger Milton Wolf, a boost for the incumbent’s sizeable and consistent lead in fundraising. Recent finance reports filed by the campaigns show that Roberts has raised more than $200,000 so far this month.

Roberts is seeking this fourth, six-year term and has enjoyed a significant fundraising advantage ahead of the...

Rob Maness to Bill Cassidy: Stand with Cruz, Sessions & Oppose Border Bill

Conservative Louisiana Senate candidate Rob Maness, a retired Air Force Colonel, opposes the House's $659 million border bill, and he called on Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) to stand with Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and publicly oppose it. "With President Obama threatening unilateral executive action to grant a massive amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, the next action Congress takes should address this threat of lawlessness," Maness said on Wednesday, emphasizing that it was a "silent surrender" to a lawless executive. "Congressman Cassidy should publicly and immediately join me in opposing this hollow border bill and fight...

Baker sidesteps taking position on gun control provision (middle of the road loser Charlie Baker)

The state Democratic Party today criticized Republican Charlie Baker for dismissing the significance of a gun control provision designed to give police chiefs authority to keep rifles and shotguns out of the hands of people they consider dangerous. In an interview on NECN Tuesday, Baker declined to say whether he supported that provision, which was included in an anti-gun violence bill passed by the House, but was stripped out by the Senate. The host, Jim Braude, pressed the gubernatorial hopeful: “Should police chiefs have that discretion?” “I don’t think that matters, Jim,” Baker replied. “The real issue here is: They...

Low Voter Turnout in Primaries Has Dems Especially Worried

Sharp declines in voter turnout for primaries in 25 states have both parties worried, but the situation is dire for Democrats, who are pouring millions into building ground operations ahead of the November election, The Hill reports. The Center for the Study of the American Electorate released a report last week showing turnout in the 25 states that have already held statewide primaries dropped 3.5 percent from 2010 to 14.8 percent of the voting-age population.

Don’t screw this up, GOP senators tell their House counterparts

Senate Republicans have a message for House Republicans: Don’t screw up before Election Day. After fumbling primaries in the past, the GOP believes it will win a majority in the upper chamber this fall — as long as the party can avoid self-inflicted wounds. To do that, Senate Republicans want their colleagues in the lower chamber to play ball and not hand Democrats anything that could turn out the opposition’s base or turn off independent voters. Senate Republicans have put subtle pressure on House members to avoid a messy fight over the border bill, impeachment or a government shutdown. Democrats...

BREAKING: Senate report exposes the movement as cash machine controlling the EPA

How a Club of Billionaires and Their Foundations Control the Environmental Movement and Obama’s EPA A new report was released today by the Senate Environment and Public Works committee, and it is damning. All this time that climate skeptics are accused of being in the employ of “big oil” is nothing more than a projection of their own greed.

Vulnerable Dems balk at Obama executive actions on immigration

Democratic senators facing tough reelections want to put the brakes on President Obama’s plan to reform the nation’s immigration enforcement system through executive action. Two of the Senate’s most vulnerable incumbents, Sens. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), say Obama should not act unilaterally to reduce deportations, arguing it’s Congress’s job to change the law. While the Democratic-led Senate has passed a bipartisan bill, the Republican-controlled House will not. That poses a dilemma for Obama. Slowing or halting deportations of otherwise law-abiding residents who came to the country illegally could produce a backlash in red states where Obama has...

Dethroning Tennessee's tax king

Tennessee’s Aug 7 Senate primary race is much more than a We the People candidate versus the establishment incumbent. The race is an opportunity for conservative state Rep. Joe Carr to dethrone Tennessee’s incumbent RINO tax king, Sen. Lamar Alexander. Lamar Alexander’s voting record shows that over 62 percent of the time he voted with Barack Obama, “more frequently than any other Republican senator from the South.” The fiscal cliff tax-hike bill that raised payroll taxes, income taxes, death taxes, capital gains taxes and dividend taxes, which increased taxes by more than $600 billion, earns top billing on the senator’s...

Joe Carr For the Win in Tennessee (primary next Thursday!!)

Rep. Joe Carr, the conservative from Middle Tennessee challenging Lamar Alexander, has gotten some huge boosts recently w/ endorsements from Laura Ingraham and Sarah Palin. Following his Palin endorsement, Carr appeared on the Glenn Beck program. The venerable conservative pundit Bill Hobbes weighed in last week and argued that Carr has forged a very real and possible path to victory that could shock the Tennessee political scene. Hobbes argued Carr could win in shocking fashion similar to how Bill Frist defeated longtime Democrat Jim Sasser in 1994. No one saw an upset coming, and Frist annihilated Sasser by 14 points...

Mark Levin: Support Joe Carr Against 'Awful' Lamar Alexander

Conservative scholar and talk radio host Mark Levin said he is rooting for Tennessee state Representative Joe Carr to defeat Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) in next week's August 7th GOP Senate primary. On his Monday radio program, Levin said Alexander, realizing that he was vulnerable because of his support for Obamacare and amnesty, has been "putting down all upstart challengers" that he thought could run against him. Levin simply called Alexander "awful." "But Representative Carr stepped up, and we would very much like him to win," Levin declared. "And we wish him all the best." Carr, whom Levin called a...

Video: Lamar Alexander: 'I Voted Against Amnesty' (feeling the heat!)

During his bus tour through Tennessee, Sen. Lamar Alexander was approached by someone asking him why he voted to support amnesty. “I voted against amnesty,” Alexander replied. The video was provided to Breitbart News by the “Beat Lamar” effort by the Real Conservatives National Committee Super PAC opposing Alexander’s re-election. Alexander’s answer is consistent with his claim that by voting for the Senate "Gang of Eight" immigration reform bill, he voted to end amnesty. "We have amnesty today,” Alexander said in June. "Turning your head while 11 million people are already here illegally is perpetual amnesty. I voted along with...

New CBS/NYT Poll Shows Possible GOP Senate Wave Forming

A new CBS/NYT poll has been released which is thus far the most exhaustive simultaneous battleground poll that has been taken this election season. It shows Republicans holding all their “close” seats, with McConnell leading Grimes 50-46 and Perdue leading Nunn 50-44. Obviously, these races are still very competitive and could flip although I think that as time goes along Perdue will pull away from Nunn while McConnell looks to be in a dogfight to the very end. As predicted, John Walsh is all but officially toast in Montana, trailing Danes 56-40. The plagiarism scandal seems to have mortally wounded...

GOP Colleagues Say Goodbye to Eric Cantor as Majority Leader (Good Riddance!)

Outgoing House Majority Leader Eric Cantor received a standing ovation from most of his fellow Republicans on Tuesday at a closed-door meeting, where a highlight film was played to mark some of his most memorable moments. "Thank you," said Speaker John Boehner, in an emotional send-off to his top lieutenant, who officially steps down from his top-level post at midnight Thursday to make way for Rep.

In Tennessee, consensus politics makes a last stand (Alexander protection piece)

NASHVILLE — On the first day of July, Sen. Lamar Alexander delivered a moving eulogy at the funeral of his political mentor, Howard H. Baker Jr., the former Senate majority leader and godfather of the Tennessee Republican Party. Baker, he said, had “more influence on my life than anyone outside my own family.” Like Baker, Alexander (R-Tenn.) has had an exemplary career in public service. He was elected to two terms as governor of Tennessee and later served as president of the University of Tennessee and U.S. education secretary. Twice he sought his party’s nomination for president, though, like Baker,...
