  • Politico: Democrats 'Should Play Dirty'

    Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Democrats! If you think the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court last year upset the left, that is nothing compared to their reaction to President Donald Trump naming a replacement for the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy to the high court which has sent them over the edge of sanity. As a result they want to take revenge on the Republicans for the high crime of winning the presidency in 2016 in addition to maintaining control of Congress. Although the Democrat leadership wants to project an image of stability, many of their members are...

    A Democratic congresswoman asked the Senate’s administrative operations to have a plan in place to prevent GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore from targeting any of the teenagers in the chamber’s page program, should he win election. Rep. Gwen S. Moore, Wisconsin Democrat, said the reports of Mr. Moore’s pursuit of relationships with teens when he was a lawyer in his 30s, decades ago, demand action now.

    A lawyer who represented the so-called "D.C. madam" says he has phone records that could influence the outcome of the presidential election, and he's threatening to release one or more names on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court if he's denied a hearing on his right to distribute them. Montgomery Blair Sibley, the late madam Deborah Palfrey's colorful attorney, has been subject to a restraining order since 2007 barring him from releasing the information, which he says includes 815 names, addresses and Social Security numbers of Verizon Wireless customers. "Time is of the essence because people are casting votes...
  • Ted Cruz Mistress Crisis – Apparently There’s Video

    03/26/2016 12:35:50 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 126 replies
    Yesterday, as the entire Cuban Mistress Crisis was simmering to a boil, it was discovered that weeks ago a large number of Marco Rubio operatives and supporters were trying to bring the sex scandal story to the MSM attention. Under the open guise of #TheThing they were communicating via various twitter feeds and following along to see if the story had been picked up. Most of the activity was centered around March 10th – March 15th. Yesterday the hashtag CruzSexScandal went viral. Today, many of those DC operatives, participants, supporters, consultants, Super-PAC’s and campaign advisors have spent a great deal...
  • GOP braces for long battle against Trump (GOP is becoming completely unglued)

    WDSU News ^ | Published 5:06 AM CST Dec 04, 2015 | By MJ Lee
    (CNN) —Donald Trump, defying skeptics and overcoming an avalanche of mockery from establishment Republicans, has extended his streak as the party's presidential frontrunner for almost five months. With the Iowa caucuses less than two months away, Republican leaders are growing deeply alarmed by Trump's resilience. Anxious that his lead may not fade before the voting starts, GOP strategists have begun to brace for a long and painful nomination fight, with Trump's opponents hoping to grind him down over a period of months. In a new CNN/ORC poll released Friday, Trump leads the GOP field of White House hopefuls at 36%...

    Doug Ross @ Journal ^ | November 25, 2015 | Doug Ross
    The Last Refuge blog (also known as The Conservative Treehouse) has done yeoman's work exposing the GOP establishment's plot to jam Jeb Bush down the collective throats of the electorate. Despite Bush's single-digit poll numbers, the GOPe remains fixated on a Bush candidacy (and, by extension, a Hillary presidency, since Bush has zero chance of winning a general election). Most recently, Virginia's old guard has proffered a laughably obvious ploy to deter independent, Tea Party, Reagan Democrat, and Constitutional Conservatives who have abandoned the Republican establishment from voting in the GOP primary....

    New Hampshire GOP chairwoman Jennifer Horn is fighting off calls for her resignation after she violated the bylaws of her own state party by attacking GOP candidate Donald Trump. WMUR, a local New Hampshire news outlet, first reported the calls for her resignation by GOP state Rep. Steve Stepanek of Amherst, New Hampshire.

    Hot Air ^ | November 24, 2015 | JAZZ SHAW
    A former chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party says Donald Trump should not be on the Republican presidential primary ballot on Feb. 9 because the GOP frontrunner has not proven he is a registered Republican and has expressed views “inconsistent” with the state and national party’s platform and by laws. In his usual, understated fashion, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski responded by saying that if this move were approved, “Mr. Trump’s supporters would probably riot in the streets of New Hampshire.” Normally I’d shrug off a comment like that as typical campaign rhetoric, but in this case it’s probably...

    Republican donors with links to several presidential candidates - as well as a prominent GOP operative - are pooling their resources in a new effort to go after Donald Trump and keep the party's presidential front-runner from winning the nomination. The most recent bid is a reported "guerrilla campaign" led by a group called Trump Card LLC and run by Liz Mair, former communications official for the Republican National Committee. The group's goal, according to The Wall Street Journal, is to collect money from anonymous donors to "defeat and destroy" Trump, who has essentially led the GOP presidential field since...

    The Wisconsin Reporter ^ | 9-22-14 | M. D. Kittle
    And now the left bites back. Wisconsin’s wild political ride continued Monday, when a left-leaning group with ties to Hillary Clinton announced it is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Interesting that the American Democracy Legal Fund pushes out its plea to Obama administration top gun Eric Holder just as Mary Burke, the Democrat’s candidate for governor, is embroiled further in a major plagiarism scandal. The American Democracy Legal Fund, run by liberal power brokers David Brock and Brad Woodhouse, wants the Justice Department to investigate whether Walker sponsored and ensured passage of mine...

    The National Review ^ | July 21, 2014 | Quin Hillyer
    The Republican National Committee should censure the committeeman from Mississippi, Henry Barbour, and perhaps request (although not demand) his resignation from the RNC. Barbour’s apparent involvement with nakedly race-baiting ads and robocalls during the GOP senatorial primary runoff in his state, and his prevarications afterwards both in public and in e-mails to other committee members, merit an official public shaming. To be clear about exactly what in Barbour’s conduct does and doesn’t deserve a rebuke, and to take care of some housekeeping with regard to journalistic ethics, please forgive a bit of personal backstory.

  • Secret Democratic Political Research Files for Twelve 2012 Match-Ups Found via Google

    It could be one of the biggest political intelligence coups of the 2012 battle to control Congress. Media Trackers, a conservative investigative watchdog group, discovered nearly three-dozen Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee opposition research notebooks – extensive secretive manuals outlining anything that could be used against a political opponent. Several news outlets have reported that some of the files have been quietly published on the DCCC’s website to facilitate their use by independent expenditure groups. On Thursday, however, Media Trackers published a dozen opposition research books that Democrats have so far managed to keep secret. The twelve unpublished manuals range in...
  • Jaczko the Jerk: Harry Reid's sexist crony gets the boot

    Human Events ^ | 5/23/2012 | Michelle Malkin
    The embattled chair of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission resigned this week. It's a victory for Republican oversight on Capitol Hill, women and sound science. But it's also a lesson in the futility of Bush-era bipartisanship. When you cut deals with bullies, it's a timeless and bitter recipe for more bullying. Gregory Jaczko served as appropriations director and science policy adviser to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., before joining the NRC in 2005. The anti-nuclear advocate was sworn in by his brass-knuckled boss and protector, Reid, who pressured the Bush administration to appoint him as a condition for moving...

    WASHINGTON -- I first heard it two, perhaps two and a half years ago. A sage sitting in his New York City office pronounced it. Said the sage to me: "This is going to be the dirtiest presidential campaign in history." I would pass on my prescient friend's name, but he is a gentleman of high profile. It would be best if he were to continue his life unmolested by the Living Saint in the White House, whom a benighted majority of Americanos deposited there in 2009. Now, roughly six months from Election Day, I fear my friend was right....

    South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says she’s being smeared once again by another blogger posting “lies” and spreading “trash” about her online. “Sorry fellas,” Haley wrote on her Facebook page Thursday. “I’m not going anywhere no matter how many lies you put on a blog.” Haley’s comments are in response to a report by The Palmetto Public Record, a South Carolina political blog, that she could be indicted in a federal investigation soon. She has denounced the post as totally false. The blog said she could be indicted in federal court over the finances of the Sikh Religious Society of...

    The National Review ^ | January 29, 2012 | The Corner: Daniel Foster, Andrew Stuttaford, Rich Lowry
    Daniel Foster: "Re: Romney’s Close" I’m sorry but, on purely tactical grounds, what a bonehead move by the Romney campaign. Negative attacks, especially in a primary, have to be run on a careful cost-benefit analysis, and what exactly is the upside here? That at least Tom Brokaw isn’t Dan Rather? Romney is comfortably up in the Florida polls in large part because his campaign (with the unwitting collusion of NBC News!) managed to turn Gingrich’s flank on the wealth issue and cut him off from reinforcement via a Newt-versus-the-establishment-media moment. He now affords Gingrich such a moment with juuuuust enough...

    Does Mediaite have an editor screening its content before it goes up online?  In a 24-hour period, that lefty news site published one story defending Vice President Joe Biden’s charge that Republicans want rape to increase if they don’t align with the President’s “jobs” plan, and another article claiming that Biden, in fact, never did use a rape reference.  First we have some dude named Nando Di Fino, whom I’ve never heard of before.  He argued that Biden’s assertion about rapes surging really isn’t that “crazy” after all.  “He was basically showing that as you cut police, crime goes up,”...

    .....In fact, “disqualifying” was the word that MSNBC anchor and former GOP Rep. Joe Scarborough used Monday morning to describe the matter. Mitt Romney called it “offensive.” And rival Herman Cain said in a Sunday appearance on ABC: “My reaction is that word is very insensitive. There are some words that do not basically inspire the kind of negativity like that particular word.” He went on to say that since Perry did not stop traveling to the camp to hunt, it shows a lack of sensitivity. On Monday, Cain took a different tone, saying it’s time to put the matter...
