Tea Party-backed candidates are trying to ride the momentum after House Majority Leader Eric Cantorís loss earlier this week by portraying their incumbent opponents as out of touch with voters.

In Mississippi, six-term GOP incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran has been locked in a neck-and-neck race with Tea Party-backed challenger Chris McDaniel.

And, it will work. The Brat victory gave Tea Party backed candidates and their supporters a HUGE shot in the arm. Make no mistake about it.

If Cochran can be knocked down in flames, it would be the icing on the cake that Rove and company couldn’t dismiss. Oh to be a fly on the wall at those meetings.

In most cases, like Brat, when Tea Party adherents vote, it is a powerful force. Not so often when they decide to drive the bus. According to Brat, he had no Tea Party financial backing. I guess they spent it all on Mississippi.

No one expected that win , but look who is taking credit for it.

I’m confused here - the media and the Democrats are saying that the country DEMANDS Amnesty...why shouldn’t Cockern and Alexander EMBRACE it?

Cantor's huge error was in thinking he was untouchable. He stupidly ran multi-million dollar ads which backfired bigtime---b/c they explicitly outlined Brat's positions----except that Cantor figured outlining those positions would lose the race for Brat.



A REFRESHER COURSE IN LOSING Cantor in 2013: "One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents. It is time to provide an opportunity for legal residence and citizenship for those who were brought to this country as children and who know no other home."

B/c no one believed that Constitutional fable, Cantor doubled down---he later offered a new explanation for why he supports granting amnesty to individuals brought into the country illegally as minors. It's “Biblical,” he said in a local radio interview.

That "revelation" offed the sucker but good. So much for Cantor's gulling the voters---endorsing a measure intended to dismantle US ntl security.


Cantor stupidly believed the rest of us just fell of turnip truck---that we know nothing about the Dream Act except what he makes up.

THE FACTS ARE THESE---The Senate amnesty bill is dangerously flawed, and its glaring omissions WRT protecting US ntl security, cannot ever serve as the basis for useful legislation.

By legalizing illegal aliens w/out shoring up law enforcement, we hand an engraved invitation to global Third Worlders----all of 'em salivating to ride the US gravy train.....each separatist group conniving to achieve its hidden agenda.

Amnesty recklessly opens the door wide for illiterate, low-skilled aliens, born and bred in savage cultures, here to suck up US benefits and take jobs away from Americans.

Third Worlders may, in fact, contribute their labor to the US, but their loyalties are elsewhere----they have no intention of becoming Americanized....of participating as equals in American culture, revering our vast history, or preserving American values.

The Senate amnesty bill is a blueprint----it amply demonstrates that illegal separatist populations intend to usurp the US political system to advance their own hidden agenda.


The Senate "Amnesty" bill includes two “slush funds” amounting to $150 MILLION annually, replenish-able with eternal tax dollars for years to come....... earmarked for groups like the blood-thirsty La Raza.

One of the Congressman voting for this outrage should be charged w/ conflict of interest: Cong Julian Castro's mother is a La Raza stalwart.

LA RAZA TEACHING HATE-AMERICA WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS La Raza Studies do not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans: Raza Studies textbook “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America (pg. 167): “.......execute all white males over age 16,” (AKA the Plan of San Diego).

America-hating Raza Studies teach (1) violence, (2) undermining US ntl security, and, (3) the need for Mexico to "re-take seven states in the order to make the SW a Chicano nation. "

SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASES Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7).

Cong Raul Grijalva is one of Mexico’s most productive and loyal Fifth Column in the US Congress....aiding and abetting the latino criminal underworld, colluding to take back the SW, and loot and pillage the US treasury.

Raul and friend.

Cantor and friend.

THE WORD IS OUT---Thad needs Democrat votes. Goody. Now might be a good time to spread the word that Obama is coming down to campaign for Cochran (cackle).

Obama must be pleased as punch that Republican Cochran recently endorsed Obamacare....since lock-stepping Democrats who voted for it en masse, are running way from the debacle as fast as their Dummy legs can carry them.

In an interview at a campaign stop, over-the-hill befuddled Cochran called the Obamacare debacle “an example of an important effort by the federal government to help make health care available, accessible and affordable.” “I’m glad to be involved in that effort,” Cochran added enthusiastically.

The Tea Party should get together after Election Day and unite for a speaker and majority whip. They should tell Johnny that he is not going to be speaker.
