    Sen. Thad Cochran's victory over state Sen. Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi GOP runoff can most likely be attributed to the African American and Democratic turnout, The New York Times reported. Cochran defeated McDaniel by 7,667 votes in a June 24 GOP runoff. About half of those votes came from heavily Democratic precincts. An analysis of 25 Mississippi precincts where President Barack Obama won at least 99 percent of the vote in 2012 showed that Cochran's vote total increased from 148 to 1,619. Obama voters who took part in the runoff backed Cochran 20 to 1. "The data strongly suggests...

    In June Senator Thad Cochran won the GOP primary runoff election over conservative challenger Chris McDaniel after 25,000-35,000 Democrats helped push him to victory. Cochran and the Republican establishment also were behind the racist anti-Tea Party ads that ran in Mississippi prior to the runoff election. Thad Cochran won the election over Chris McDaniel by 6,880 votes in the June 24 runoff.

    A Mississippi man who accused the Thad Cochran campaign of paying African-Americans to vote for the senator in his primary runoff last month is walking back his story. Stevie Fielder told California-based blogger Charles C. Johnson he was asked to buy votes for $15 a pop in the June 24 runoff between Cochran and state Sen. Chris McDaniel. Now, he's saying he never paid anyone to vote, saying the conversations he claimed he had with Cochran campaign staffers Kirk Sims and Amanda Shook were "hypothetical" and the interview with Johnson was edited.

    The Republican runoff election circus seems destined to land in court one way or another. Chris McDaniel's supporters have been pining for legal action since their candidate lost by more than 6,000 votes to Sen. Thad Cochran in the June 24 GOP runoff. McDaniel is expected to challenge the results, which his campaign says include many ineligible voters. Now, Cochran's campaign is telling a blogger and a former campaign worker from Lauderdale County to lawyer up. Read more here:

A bearish, gentle-voiced, ponytailed man who for three decades enjoyed a successful career as a jazz guitarist accompanying the likes of Al Jarreau and Stanley Clarke, Johnson has always had a geek’s penchant for self-education, and in that spirit he cultivated a side interest, and ultimately an expertise, in writing computer code. His Web log, which he named “Little Green Footballs” (a private joke whose derivation he has always refused to divulge), was...

    Conservative, liberal, Democrat, Republican, it really doesn’t matter; pretty much the topic of conversation today is the special election being held in Massachusett(e)s to fill the seat left by the passing of Ted Kennedy. It’s a real barn-burner, it is, what with a stolid, leaden Democrat candidate woefully trailing a vibrant and optimistic Republican front-runner (I know, it’s almost unbelieveable). Television, newspapers, blogs are all covering the race with either despair or indifference (Democrat party hacks and the MSM) or breathless admiration and excitement (pretty much everyone else). Except one blog. This particular race doesn’t seem to have hit the...

    Along with the introduction of what appears to be the most valid-looking Obama birth certificate came an almost immediate attempt to debunk it. This attempt was immediately eaten up by MSNBC, Obama’s main propaganda network, by hosts like Keith Olbermann.  The main argument of this attempt to debunk the certificate is that Kenya hadn’t yet become a republic at the time the document was dated: Feb 14, 1964. The argument is that Kenya was officially declared a republic in December of that year. The second most important argument is that the region he was born in wasn’t called Mombasa at the time:...

However, if people want to save the American nation and way of life - the best and most benevolent society in human history; opposition must be passionate and RATIONAL.

    Stanley Ann Dunham, Barack Obama's mother, was registered for college classes in Seattle only 15 days after reportedly delivering her first-born child in Honolulu, according to school records obtained by WND. How Dunham was able to travel the 2,680 air miles from Honolulu to Seattle only a few days after the birth of her baby – at a time when trans-Pacific travel likely was at a speed half of today's jets – is not disclosed in the currently available public record concerning President Obama's birth. Nor is there anything on the public record to explain how Dunham managed to find...
  • A simple comparison of reporting - The "Birther" issue and media bias

    I have become increasingly infuriated over the condescending and outright insulting reporting of the "Birther" issue in the news media. As such, I thought it would be an interesting exercise to locate a news article describing the concerns about John McCain's eligibility that existed back before the primaries and compare the tone of the reporting to a more recent article that describes the current concerns about Barack Obama's eligibility. As I am publicly decrying bias, I should take a moment to describe where my own bias lies. It is important to note that I really believe the birth certificate issue...
  • What happened to Michelle Obama's law license ?

    Why did Michelle Obama give up her license to practice law in 1993? Records listed at the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois list her status as "voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law." It further states that Michelle license is "on court ordered inactive status." The statement has many bloggers wondering why a court would issue an order to stop Michelle Obama from practicing law, and some have even suggested the first lady faced may have been facing allegations of misconduct. Michelle Obama, known as Michelle Robinson at the time, attended Princeton University...

    A document unveiled by a California attorney in her quest to determine President Obama's place of birth has been condemned as a forgery by critics who deride as nonsense the challenges that have been raised to the president based on the U.S. Constitution's demand that the Oval Office occupant be a "natural born" citizen. But those on the other side, who would like to see the original documentation of Obama's birth place revealed, say there are factors that indicate the Kenyan birth document could be real. WND reported when the document was submitted to a California court by California attorney...

    MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Aug. 4 (UPI) -- A birth certificate a California lawyer claims shows President Barack Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen is a fake, a blogger says. In a post on the Web site, Steve Eddy of California said he discovered through an online search that the document released by "birther" Orly Taitz was a doctored version of the birth certificate for David Jeffrey Bomford, born in South Australia in April 1959, reported Tuesday. Salon reported that Taitz responded by saying, "Obama's thugs in mainstream media came up with this Bomford report in order to...

    In the realm of street art, the posters portraying President Barack Obama as the Joker, as played by the late Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, aren't high art. They aren't like the iconic images of "Hope'' that sprouted during the Obama camapign. But then, these are the post-campaign portraits of discontent in some quarters. And, like their predecessors, the newest posters are becoming an Internet sensation among those for whom a picture is worth 1,000 words--or one word, in the case of this poster campaign: "socialism." Looking at the anonymously created posters that started on the streets of L.A....

    Aug. 5, 2009 | There are, sadly, a lot of Birthers out there. A recent poll showed that 11 percent of Americans -- including 28 percent of Republicans -- don't believe President Obama was born in the U.S. Another 12 percent aren't sure. So, at some point, you're likely to find out that a friend or relative is a Birther. Your Uncle Floyd will forward you a chain e-mail that says Obama was actually born in Kenya and there's a Kenyan birth certificate that proves it and hundreds of government officials and reporters are in on a conspiracy to hide...
  • The Dangerous Precedent Set by Obama being President

    08/04/2009 1:26:49 PM PDT · by RobinMasters · 117 replies · 1,728+ views
    Obama’s father was never a US citizen, nor was he ever permanently domiciled in the US. At birth, Obama was a British citizen. [He's also been a Kenyan citizen and perhaps a citizen of Indonesia as well.] Obama admits his birth status was governed by Great Britain. The question presented then is whether the US is willing to allow persons who were born without a single allegiance to the US to be Commander in Chief of our military. For it is this specific fear that prompted our first Supreme Court Chief Justice – John Jay – to suggest to George...

    Political conspiracy theories – like the so-called “birther” allegation that Obama is not a legitimate US citizen – are as old as the nation. In the late 1700s, it was rumored that the Freemasons were actually a Satanic cult and George Washington was a member who was elevated to the presidency so they could control the country. Such views were generally held by a few fringe groups and were viewed by the mainstream culture as a bit nutty. But in the past few decades, conspiracy theories have tended to become a part of mainstream political culture, say political analysts. They...
