  • Ted Cruz's Brain Trust: The Advisers Who Want To Make Him President

    11/20/2014 4:16:46 PM PST · by 2ndDivisionVet · 20 replies
    There's no official Sen. Ted Cruz presidential team — yet. But the Texas Republican is already surrounding himself with key strategists and advisers that could make his transparent White House ambitions a reality. The tea party firebrand relies on a small circle of advisers to inform his views and amplify his ultraconservative message. The inner circle breaks down into two groups: his chief advisers in the Senate office, and the chiefs of his nationally-focused political operation, which he beefed up in the summer of 2014 by hiring a crop of seasoned Republican campaign operatives. These are the key players that...

    The Hill ^ | August 20, 2014 | Bob Cusack, Vivian Hughbanks and Tomas Navia
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)There are 65 prominent people who might run for president in 2016. The Democratic and Republican fields contrast sharply. Hillary Clinton is the clear front-runner, while there is no front-runner on the Republican side. Twenty-three Democrats have been mentioned as a candidate or are eyeing a bid, according to an analysis by The Hill. The GOP side has 42. Most of the people on this list won’t run, and some have adamantly claimed that they’re not interested. But many politicians have changed their minds on seeking the White House. Before mounting his 2008 bid, then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he...

    Before firing off that next email to an elected official, you’d better cross your fingers and hope the politician is not feeling anxious about your message. A judge in Oklahoma Friday ordered the co-founder of the Sooner Tea Party to be tried on felony blackmail and computer crimes charges for sending an email to a state senator who said he felt threatened by its tone, The Associated Press reported. The judge ruled that probable cause exists that Al Gerhart committed the crimes when he sent an email allegedly designed to intimidate Oklahoma state Sen. Cliff Branan, the Republican chairman of...
  • How A Little Known Pro-Gun Lobby Is Derailing Bipartisan Attempts At Gun Control Legislation (GOA)

    Business Insider ^ | April 8, 2013 | Sahil Kapur, Talking Points Memo
    A little known pro-gun lobby that’s well to the right of the National Rifle Association has complicated efforts to reach a solution on gun control legislation, top Democrats have said in recent days. The Gun Owners of America has been around for decades, operating mostly in obscurity, dwarfed by the lobbying and fundraising prowess of the NRA. The group’s big gripe is that the NRA is too squishy and willing to compromise, and its recent efforts to scuttle gun control legislation appear to be scaring away Republicans amenable to background checks. The results have frustrated Democrats trying to strike a...

    Hot Air ^ | February 25, 2013 | Allahpundit
    Here’s the first hard evidence we’ve seen that the big meeting of the minds on guns that the media’s been touting might be overhyped. Plain and simple, says Coburn, if Democrats demand that records of private gun sales be kept, the compromise is dead. But wait. Kept by who? By the seller, or by the federal government? A Senate aide familiar with the process said Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace erred in the question he posed to Coburn. The aides said there is no discussion of allowing the federal government to keep any records of background checks or sales,...

    The Tulsa World ^ | July 6, 2012 | Randy Krehbiel
    Republican 2nd Congressional District runoff opponents Markwayne Mullin and George Faught continued to tussle Thursday over something said by Mullin last August and used by Faught in a recent campaign spot. The setting this time was Mullin's Broken Arrow plumbing business, where a representative for Faught showed up to hand out a statement from Faught after Mullin essentially called Faught a liar at a Thursday afternoon press conference. Mullin's campaign team eventually shooed the Faught operative off the grounds, but not before he'd passed around copies of Faught's statement. At issue is Mullin's use of the term "single payer" during...

Dan Boren announced plans to step down and not seek a fifth term, six Republicans are looking to flip the only Democrat-held seat in the state's congressional delegation from blue to red. “This really is the big prize for the Republican Party in Oklahoma this year,” said Oklahoma's Republican Party Chairman Matt Pinnell. “It will be the biggest race in Oklahoma this year, outside of the presidential race. This is a battleground congressional race.” The six Republicans are three-term state Rep. George Faught, 49, of Muskogee; business owner Markwayne Mullin, 34, of Westville;...

    The mainstream media enjoys analyzing how the candidates performed but rarely replays the meat of an answer given by a candidate. The substance of what Newt Gingrich said in reply to the questions asked by CNNs John King will help Oklahoma voters make their decision of who to vote for in the March 6th Presidential Primary. The first question asked was regarding the candidates’ plan to bring down the national debt. Gingrich’s response was to create jobs and spur economic growth. He also suggested that the Federal government open federal land and offshore areas to energy production. He also mentioned...

    ENID — The number $1.43 trillion will work well for Republicans in the 2012 election, said Matt Pinnell, chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party. He made the remarks about the federal budget deficit at a meeting Tuesday of Garfield County Republican Women in the Gantz Center at Northern Oklahoma College Enid. Pinnell is the youngest state party chairman in the United States. “It is the highest budget deficit in history,” he said. That and other budget and unemployment numbers are the ones Republicans believe will defeat President Barack Obama next year. Republicans are keeping their campaign simple because they believe...

    Gubernatorial candidates Democrat Jari Askins and Republican Mary Fallin agreed on one thing at Thursday night's OSU-Tulsa gubernatorial debate: Sarah Palin is presidential material. Joe Kelley, KRMG talk radio host, asked both candidates whether Palin was presidential material. "I personally admire Sarah Palin and her true grit, her hard work, her tenacity, her willing to say whatever's on her mind," Fallin said. "She's earned great admiration, especially trying to put up with some of the things she's had to go through with even the national media. "I appreciate what she does.

Jari Askins appeared headed toward a victory over state Attorney General Drew Edmondson, who had held a double-digit lead in polling heading into the primary. Fallin, a two-term congresswoman and former lieutenant governor who has been endorsed by national Republicans including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, won the GOP nod outright with 59 percent. Her main rival, state Sen. Randy Brogdon, won 34 percent while two other challengers, businessman Robert Hubbard and retired...

    U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe and Rep. John Sullivan officially endorsed Republican Fred Thompson for president on Wednesday. Thompson's presidential campaign made the announcement for the two Oklahoma Republicans. Inhofe had gone public with his support of Thompson last June, even before the attorney-turned-actor-turned-politician had entered the race. Sullivan confirmed his endorsement Wednesday. "I am proud to support Senator Thompson," he said in a written statement. "He is a backer of fiscally responsible spending, positive immigration reform and correcting our nation's broken health-care system." Inhofe cited Thompson's leadership and proven record of supporting conservative values. "As Americans get to know Fred...

    Lt. Gov. Mary Fallin won an easy victory for the Republican nomination for the 5th District congressional seat on Tuesday, defeating Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett in a run-off primary. Fallin had 26,744 votes, or 63.1 percent, and Cornett had 15,665 votes, or 36.9 percent. The mayor conceded with a little more than two-thirds of the vote counted.

    Lt. Gov. Mary Fallin’s first-place finish in the July 25 Republican primary for Oklahoma’s 5th District seat, with 35 percent of the vote, didn’t automatically make her the front-runner for her Aug. 22 runoff against Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett, who took 24 percent in the first round. But the endorsements Fallin received Monday from all four of the other candidates who ran in the primary — and who received a combined 41 percent of the vote — may do the trick. In order of their finish in the primary, state Corporation Commissioner Denise Bode, state Reps. Kevin Calvey and...

    Journalists, political pundits and other Hysteric Left activists are desperately trying to spin some cosmic significance out of Sunday's Spanish elections. The "conventional wisdom" is that the Spanish Election results are some sort of significant defeat for President Bush and the War on Terror. As usual the "News Media's" thinking is neither conventional nor wise. What all the various activists miss is the reality of American Exceptionalism. As much as the International Political Left hates, and try's to deny, the reality is the USA operates on a completely different political level then the rest of the world. On Sunday, the...

The truth is that, except for Iowa and New Hampshire, there has not been any sort of record turnout for the Democrats.

    http://newsmax.com/archives/ic/2004/3/6/121052.shtml Well isn't this intresting. The "objective news media" supposed 9-11 surviors protesting Bush's ads are actually anti-war stooges financed by John Kerry's wife. Please take a moment and vist the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, CBS, NBC and ABC etc to email the Omsbudsman, the Publisher, the News Editor and demand to know why they allowed clearly partisan advocates of Kerry's Presidential Campaign were presented on their "News" programs with no reference to their ties to the Kerry camp. We absolutely must demand the "News Media" be held accountable for their free advertising for the Kerry camp.
  • Clinton use OKC images in '96 campaign?

    With all the leftist pro-Kerry "WTC widows" publically complaining about Bush's "WTC ads", I have to wonder if Clinton ever used any images from the OKC bombing in his '96 campaign? It would be interesting to find out if any OKC widows ever complained on the Today Show to the DNC demanding that those images or references be withdrawn?I do hope some skilled Freeper can research that and post the campaign ads for us.I would also hope that some WTC widows or firefighters, etc would go on tv and say that they are offended by McAulliffe and the DNC's using...

    http://www.georgewbush.com/tvads/ Here is a link to the 1st three Bush Re-election ads. As expected the DNC directed its "Objective News Media" mouthpieces at CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC to generate phoney hysteria about these ads. Compared to the demogagery and lies spread by the Kerry Campaign, Moveon.org and the DNC about Bush for the last 6 months, this is probably the mildest sets of ads that have run so far this political season. Please email this link to every person on you email contact list. We need to get as many people as possible to see these ads. They are...

    (Oklahoma City-AP) -- Democratic Congressman Brad Carson has more than $1-million in his war chest for the race to succeed Senator Don Nickles. Meanwhile, Republican Kirk Humphreys has raised more than 550-thousand dollars for the Senate race in just two months. Humphreys, former mayor of Oklahoma City, surpassed his goal of raising 400-thousand dollars by the end of the year. Humphreys' campaign manager, Josh Kivett, says that after expenses, Humphreys finished the year with about $425,000 in the bank. Carson had $342,000 in his House re-election account before Nickles announced his retirement in October. Humphreys has received fund-raising help from...

    Two powerful Oklahoma Republicans endorsed former Oklahoma City Mayor Kirk Humphreys in the U.S. Senate race Tuesday but denied that their support was intended to anoint a Republican candidate. "I would expect there's going to be a primary on each side," said U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, R-Norman. "There certainly ought to be one on the Democratic side. There certainly ought to be one on the Republican side." Cole and former U.S. Rep. J.C. Watts, R-Norman, announced their support Tuesday for Humphreys in the race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Don Nickles, R-Ponca City. Other prominent Oklahoma Republicans who have endorsed...
