  • Bloomberg Disses Rural Colorado: 'I Don't Think There's Roads' in Colorado Springs or Pueblo

    Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg scoffed at rural Colorado’s reaction to gun control during an interview with Rolling Stone in this month’s magazine, suggesting that only the parts of the country without even the most basic components of civilization would be opposed to more gun control. Bloomberg was asked about the successful recall races of Democratic State Senators in response to the strict gun control legislation passed in the state. “The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don't think there's roads. It's as far rural as you can get,” he said. ......

    The Right Elective Decisions ^ | 09/11/13 | Chris Davis
    You’ve fought hard! You’ve canvassed neighbors, made phone calls, and drove people to the polls to finally get your candidate elected in 2010. You’re both exhausted and elated to have representation in Congress. Finally, Mr. Smith Goes To Washington, and you just know that you’ve struck a major blow to the Republican establishment. You’re sick and tired of politicians using the U.S. Constitution as coasters for their martini glasses. You’re weary of constantly getting raked over the coals by the endless Administrative state, as your liberty vanishes day by day off the surface of the planet. And furthermore, you’re exhausted,...
  • RECALL AD: Rocky Mountain Gun Owners Hits Morse On “Toxicity” (CO Gun Grabber)

    Colorado Peak Politics ^ | August 14, 2013 | ColoradoPeakPolitics
    A new TV ad by Rocky Mountain Gun Owners slams Senate President John Morse for his labeling emails from constituents as “toxic.” The one minute spot uses a clip from when Morse went on the Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC during the gun control debate and proudly proclaimed that he was advising his caucus to stop reading their emails and vote for the gun bills. It’s the second ad from a Dudley Brown gun group, after a National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) ad ran last month. Every major gun group, from the NRA to RMGO, was absent in getting...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., June 3, 2013 — Petition signatures filed with the Colorado Secretary of State’s office are more than sufficient to recall state senator John Morse (D). The recall is the first recall of a Colorado legislator in the state’s history.

    [snip] If it's wrong for FNC to campaign against Obama, how about MSNBC launching a "Get Out The Vote" effort against Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall election? Have a look at the video clip here of an MSNBC "Lean Forward" promo for Ed Schultz's show. After Schultz declares that the Wisconsin recall hinges on "who gets their people out," the screen flashes "Get Out The Vote!" Schultz seeks to recruit his viewers in the effort, the graphic asking them to "share your photos" at Schultz's Facebook page. There's no doubt who Schultz is seeking to get out the vote...

    If you haven't been following the Alinsky methods being used by Randy Parraz and his far-left associates to take down Arizona Senator Russell Pearce (R), you should pay close attention. They may target your Republican legislator very soon. If they can destroy Pearce, they can destroy anybody. The recall election will be held November 8, 2011; early balloting begins on October 13 (that is, tomorrow). So who is Russell Pearce? Senator Pearce gained national prominence in April 2010 as the architect of SB1070, one of the toughest anti-illegal immigration laws in America. It allows Arizona to enforce the federal immigration...

    Weekly Standard ^ | John McCormack
    Every day a flurry of 8.5'' by 11'' glossy mailers arrive in mailboxes across the 10th senate district in northwestern Wisconsin. They reliably depict Sheila Harsdorf, one of six Republican state senators facing a recall election on Tuesday, as a pawn of Governor Scott Walker and greedy corporations. Some days she's (falsely) accused of wanting to "eliminate Medicare." Other days she's attacked for cutting money from public education while sending millions to private schools in Milwaukee (by supporting vouchers that save the state money). But for all of the attack ads, there's one charge you'll never hear made against Harsdorf--that...

    With the AP calling the final two races, all six of Democrats running in primaries across the state against GOP "protest" candidates running as Democrats in Tuesday's recall primaries have won their respective races. The GOP ran the candidates in order to give GOP candidates more time to campaign. The latest races called: The 10th SD primary, in which Democrat Shelly Moore defeated GOP protest candidate Isaac Weix. According to unofficial returns, Moore was up 54 percent to 46 percent with 91 percent reporting. Moore will take on Sheila Harsdorf, R-River Falls, in the northwestern Wisconsin district's Aug. 9 general...

    It's been many years since I watched the 1960 Academy Award winning epic Spartacus, spiritual predecessor to Ridley Scott's rousing Gladiator. I don't recall every detail. However, I do remember that much referenced scene toward the end. Roman soldiers have finally routed a ragtag army of rebel slaves led by Kirk Douglas' title character. The Romans offer to spare the defeated mob, and return them to their lives of slavery, if they will only give up their leader. As Spartacus rises to offer himself up for his men, one of them leaps to his feet. I'm Spartacus! Then another arises....
  • CA: State senator from Central Valley to face recall election (Republican state Sen. Jeffrey Denham)

    03/18/2008 4:36:15 PM PDT · by NormsRevenge · 15 replies · 482+ views
    Republican state Senator Jeffrey Denham will face a recall election later this year after the secretary of state certified the petitions seeking the vote. Denham's 12th Senate District includes all or parts of Madera, Merced, Monterey, San Benito, and Stanislaus counties. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will schedule the recall election, which will be held between 60 and 80 days from Tuesday. Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, a Democrat from Oakland, has supported the recall effort. He has been critical of Denham for refusing to support last year's state budget during a lengthy deadlock. Opponents needed to collect 31,084 valid signatures...

    The same grass-roots group that launched the successful recall of Gov. Gray Davis turned its attention to the Legislature on Thursday and kicked off an initiative drive to reconfigure legislative districts so that politicians face tougher competition on election day. Ted Costa, chief executive officer of the conservative antitax group, People's Advocate, has taken the first step toward putting an initiative before voters next November that would take redistricting out of the hands of the Legislature and give it to a panel of retired judges. Costa does not want to wait eight years to get rid of the district boundaries...

    The fires are giving Arnold Schwarzenegger a golden opportunity. They're allowing him to quickly choose the kind of governor he wants to be: practical or political. Flexible or rigid. We're talking taxes. Schwarzenegger can opt to be the "never-say-never" pragmatist on taxes that he was when his gubernatorial campaign began — the candidate who declared, after a ballyhooed meeting with economic advisors: "You can't ever say never [on tax increases] because we could have next year an earthquake. We could have a natural disaster. We could have a terrorist attack or something like that." Or Schwarzenegger can stick with the...

    Re "Bush, Schwarzenegger Agree to Agree for Now," Oct. 17: President Bush's California visit with our governor-elect Thursday highlighted the rock-and-a-hard-place situation in which state Democrats find themselves. Arnold Schwarzenegger's landslide election as a moderate Republican demolishes the belief in California as a Democratic monolith with 55 electoral votes for next year's presidential election. It is a political impossibility for a Democrat to win the White House without California's electoral votes. For that reason, state Democratic leaders cannot allow Schwarzenegger to succeed or even begin to turn around the state's fiscal nightmare. Should he succeed, his coattails could possibly wrap...

    LOS ANGELES -- Now that Arnold Schwarzenegger has been elected governor, California newspaper editors are scratching their heads over the daily challenge of squeezing his 14-letter last name into a headline. Copy editors, given large headlines to work with during the recall election, are likely to have smaller spaces for daily stories on state government. "There were copy editors across the state who were dreading the prospect of Schwarzenegger becoming governor, not because of politics but because of the fit," said John Armstrong, editor of the Contra Costa Times. Editors at the newspaper briefly discussed using Schwarzenegger's three initials, like...

    When The Los Angeles Times published articles just days before the California recall election detailing reports of inappropriate sexual behavior by Arnold Schwarzenegger, its editor steadfastly defended the timing. "It is a paper's job to disclose anything it knows that bears on a candidate's fitness for office — before Election Day, not after," the editor, John Carroll, said. But Republicans on talk radio, the Internet and some cable television talk shows accused the newspaper of shilling for Gov. Gray Davis. And many voters agreed. "This is a Davis ploy — he's the king of dirty tricks," one Schwarzenegger voter said,...

    In the wake of California's recall election, the temptation to draw far-reaching conclusions is strong. Despite 11th-hour allegations against Republican Gov.-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger, the final results were decisive. Schwarzenegger, a political novice and outsider, overcame accusations of sexual harassment, past drug use and alleged admiration for Adolf Hitler, and he did so while offering precious few specifics about what he will do as governor. He ducked all but the final debate among the major candidates, and he relied heavily on the so-called soft media, with appearances on Jay Leno's and Oprah Winfrey's shows. Does this mean that celebrities, immune from...
