  • Scott Brown Attacks Jeanne Shaheen For Positions Kelly Ayotte Also Holds

    07/23/2014 2:14:47 AM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 2 replies
    Huffington Post ^ | Kasey Varner
    Despite presenting a cozy public image, Republicans Scott Brown and Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) are once again at odds over key issues, as Brown campaigns to unseat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.). Ayotte, who officiated at the wedding of Brown's daughter on Sunday, got to know Brown when he served as a Massachusetts senator before losing his seat to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). He has since relocated to New Hampshire to challenge Shaheen. Ayotte endorsed Brown, but by attacking Shaheen's positions on immigration and veterans' affairs he is effectively disparaging Ayotte's record as well.
  • Phillips: The Queen Of The Tea Party

    The Washington Times ^ | July 16, 2014 | Judson Phillips
    Calling someone the “queen of the tea party,” may be an odd appellation for a movement that has no leaders. Sarah Palin was regarded by some as the “queen of the tea party.” Conservatives immediately rallied around her in 2008, when John McCain tapped her to be the vice presidential nominee. She remained popular, but her role with the tea party exploded after the First Tea Party Convention in Nashville in 2010. In 2010, Palin held court and made appearances and endorsements. Those endorsements turned out to be very valuable to candidates in 2010. In 2012, she lost a bit...
  • Joe Carr Reacts to Chris McDaniel Senate Loss: The Fight Will Continue (TN)

    As Tea Party challengers grappled with the stunning news that Sen. Thad Cochran had beaten the odds to win his primary against Chris McDaniel, Tennessee candidate for Senate Joe Carr vowed that the fight would continue. “Make no mistake about it: the fight that Chris McDaniel started in Mississippi will continue here in Tennessee,” Carr announced in a statement to supporters late Tuesday night. Carr specifically criticized the Cochran campaign for working to drive out Democrat supporters to win the runoff election. According to the Associated Press, Cochran earned 50.8 percent of the vote, while McDaniel peaked with 49.2 percent....
  • TN Senate Challenger: Lamar Alexander is the Next Eric Cantor

    Tennessee State Rep. Joe Carr, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), predicted that Alexander will go the way of House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor in an appearance on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" on Wednesday. Carr stated, “Sen. Alexander has a similar problem that Leader Cantor had in that he's out of touch with his Republican base in Tennessee.” Like Cantor’s primary challenger, Dave Brat, Carr says that immigration is a strong area of contrast between him and his primary challenger, he declared “the problem Lamar Alexander has and so many of the establishment Republicans have, is...

    Like most of the rest of the United States, Massachusetts is fast becoming a banana republic — minus the bananas. Tomorrow, we’ll find out just how far gone the state is, when Judge David Ricciardone in Worcester hands down his sentence on an illegal alien drunken driver from Ecuador charged with murder in the death of a taxpaying American citizen in Milford in 2011. The fact that it took almost three years to get this illegal — I mean, undocumented Democrat — to trial just goes to show the double standard of “justice” in the People’s Republic.

    **SNIP** If you have any questions, dial 800-645-8333 on your Obamaphone. There’s only one way to cope with this mean-spirited Republican attack on the leisure classes — get more EBT cards. You just go down to the welfare office and make a “self-declaration,” meaning nobody checks. That’s how come you read so often nowadays of illegals being pinched, and just before the traditional paragraph about the immigration detainer, you learn that the “dreamer” had two, or three, or even four EBT cards.

    What Is Samantha Power Thinking?The charismatic Obama adviser believes that stopping "genocide" is the United States' top foreign-policy priority. On March 18, President Obama explained his decision to mobilize the United States military for international intervention in Libya. “Left unchecked,” he said, “we have every reason to believe that Qaddafi would commit atrocities against his people. Many thousands could die. A humanitarian crisis would ensue. The entire region could be destabilized, endangering many of our allies and partners.” (As if it hasn’t been already?) That last sentence was a Realpolitik, national-interest justification for the U.S. intervention. But it rang hollow....

Scott Brown. “It’s me — and us — against the machine,” he was saying last night. “It’s us against Beacon Hill, Capitol Hill, Hollywood.” It’s not enough that Granny Warren, the fake Indian, is raising more campaign cash from the Beautiful People and, yes, the machine, than any congressional candidate in the country.

    t’s tax time again, when all the ponytailed, trust-funded, NPR-listening moonbats have a chance to put their money where their big mouths are and voluntarily pay a higher state income tax rate. According to the state Department of Revenue, so far this year, 948,714 individuals have filed their state income-tax returns. Altogether, 257 have checked off Box 22, which allows them to pay at the old 5.85 percent rate, rather than the current 5.3 percent rate. My math may be a little off, but if 949,000 people have filed, 1 percent would be 9,490, and one-tenth of 1 percent would...

So now Deval mimics Barack Obama. He finds some new marks and scores a $1.35 million advance for...

    The Boston Globe WRKO paid 'servant' Carr $790,000 August 3, 2007 Howie Carr has protested that WRKO-AM is treating him like an "indentured servant," trying to force him to remain at the station when he is ready to bolt to WTKK-FM this fall. But indentured servitude never looked so good: The conservative talk show host made $790,000 in salary and incentives last year, according to industry executives who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. And, had he hit all of his bonus targets, he could have earned north of $900,000. "He was well-paid...

    Thank you, Gov. Deval Patrick. Thank you for finally saying no to a Massachusetts judge looking to take early retirement with a big fat kiss in the mail. And the fact that the jurist who’s just been kicked to the curb is Easy Ernie Murphy is just, well, icing on the cake. It’s amazing, this judicial perk known as the “involuntary disability provision.” It could more accurately be called the “embattled judges early retirement” law. Ernie is embattled, of course, by the fact that he’s got a hearing coming up in front of the Judicial Conduct Commission for a letter...

    Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see the Boston Marathon canceled tomorrow - not postponed, but canceled. What poetic justice it would be: After all these years of corporate greedheads and narcissistic runners ruining a workday for us, finally nature ruins one for them. Oh sure, cancellation is a longshot, but what if the weather reports do pan out? Even with the most optimistic forecasts, there should be a lot fewer drunks along the route this year, littering and relieving themselves wherever. Let’s hope the cops can find at least a few...
