  • "We Just Want People to Vote!" and Other Lies the Democrats Told Me

    White House College Reporter Day took an interesting turn last week when President Obama showed up unannounced to deliver a speech to journalism students on the importance of voting Democrat. He didn't actually tell them to vote Democrat, of course -- he just told them to vote, though there's no doubt which party he was hinting they should vote for. The message was about as subtle as a punch in the face. The students were listening to Press Secretary Josh Earnest drone on and on when the president suddenly burst onto the stage. Earnest feigned surprised because, you know, everything...

    Looking at the numbers from last Tuesday's GOP and Democrat Primaries I noticed something I had not seen talked about much. Voter turnout favored the Republicans in all but one contest: Illinois. Is just a coincidence that Illinois was the same state that saw the organized, professional, agitators come out in mass? As Donald Trumps populist message continues to build momentum, I believe the Democrats will see the Chicago model as the only chance they have to compete.

    The conference could barely fill the first two rows of seats. The speakers emphasized the important role Millennial voters can play in the political process by getting out the vote, engaging fellow students on campus, and supporting the objectives of the Democratic Party. The conference began July 22 and will end this Saturday. Emphasizing the importance of Millennial voters in upcoming elections, progressive activists spoke to a nearly empty auditorium at the College Democrats of America annual conference on Friday.Despite offering a full day of activities, speakers like Julian Castro, and campaigning advice from top political operatives, the College...
  • Davis, Fluke And Dunham: Liberal Feminism’s Rage Spiral

    Radical liberal feminism — the kind that likes abortion on demand and taxpayer-funded birth control — has been rejected at the polls. Or, at least, it’s been a really rough week, or so. And I’m not just talking about the fact that Sen.-elect Cory Gardner effectively pushed back on the “war on women” narrative by defeating Colorado’s ”Mark Uterus.”The story also played out in Texas, where — writing about the race — Mollie Hemingway observed: “Wendy Davis was the face of ‘War On Women’ Politics. How’d that go?” And it played out in California, where Sandra Fluke lost a bid for...

    Didn't vote in the last midterm elections? It turns out many of the celebrities pressuring young people to vote in tomorrow's off-year elections didn't cast a ballot last time, either. According to the Washington Post at least five stars who participated in a recent Rock the Vote video urging youth to exercise their franchise didn't bother to show up to the polls themselves in 2010. View co-host Whoppi Goldberg, Orange is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne, Glee's Darren Criss, Girls creator Lena Dunham and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star E.J.

    Celebrities are less likely to vote in midterm elections, just like us! Rock The Vote released a public service announcement last month with a parody of Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What" that featured public figures who explained why they planned to vote in the midterm elections, but according to public records, a number of them didn't vote in the last midterm election. At least five who appeared in the PSA — "Girls" actress Lena Dunham, comedian Whoopi Goldberg, "Orange is the New Black" actress Natasha Lyonne, "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" star E.J. Johnson, and actor Darren Criss —...

    That left-wing group called Rock the Vote has released its latest silly new video urging the youth of America to vote. But vote for what? As usual, they featured celebrities and young people urging a turnout for marriage equality, for global warming awareness and against deforestation. It comes with visual aids for their pet issues. There's a globe with an old-fashioned ice bag on it, a gun with a padlock on the trigger, and a ball-and-chain representing student loans. There are those edgy figures, like the rapper whose "song" drones throughout the video: "My name is Lil Jon and I'm...

    My wife had some of her girlfriends over today when I was out of the house. Later, my wife told me that one of her liberal friend was bragging about how she is registered to vote at three addresses and regularly votes three times, including in the current election. She didn't say for who, but we all know she is a liberal. We live in the SF Bay area. The friend in question moved here from New York a few years ago and is probably registered in NY, plus at two addresses here in Calif. The question is, what can...

    Snoop Dogg highlighted a list of top ten reasons to not vote for Mitt Romney as well as why one should vote for President Obama. The politically incorrect list refers to Romney as a “white n****” who looks like he “says n****” all the time.” Snoop Dogg, who recently changed his name to Snoop Lion, revealed the list, which is not his own, via Instagram. He took a photo of a notebook with the handwritten lists in two columns: “Why I’m Not Voting For Romney” and “Why I Am Voting For Obama.” [See list here] The number one reason cited...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New state laws designed to fight voter fraud could reduce the number of Americans signing up to vote in this year's presidential election by hundreds of thousands, a potential problem for President Barack Obama's re-election bid. Voting laws passed by Republican-led legislatures in a dozen states during the past year have sharply restricted voter-registration drives that typically target young, low-income, African-American and Hispanic voters - groups that have backed the Democratic president by wide margins. A further 16 states are considering bills that would end voter registration on election days, impose a range of limits on groups...

    Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson says Michigan has no plans to offer online voter registration, arguing the state needs to improve security in the voting process before introducing new technology. "There's nothing that's more important to the foundation of our democracy, our republic, our country than making sure our votes are clean and also encouraging people to vote," she told WJR-AM 760 host Frank Beckmann on Monday. "It's always a balancing act." Rock the Vote, a non-partisan national group that encourages young people to participate in elections, has called Michigan's voting laws outdated and suggested this week that technology...

    Did it seem odd to you that even the Fox all-star panel would have us believe that the President with the most micromanaged image in recent memory had no control or influence whatsoever over the preparation, format, and tenor etc. of the commercialized, pep rally memorial we witnessed this week, and that the White House can blame the embarrassment entirely on the University of Arizona? The entire event was about Captain Greek Columns - who gave a half hour speech – and his time to shine and show off his magical healing abilities. Togethere We Thrive” sure sounded a lot...

    Question from Adam Hunter: "When you were first elected, it seemed as though the sky was falling in terms of the economy. There was a bailout that you supported, there was stimulus that added to our deficit, but yet it seems as though our unemployment rate still rises. You said it won't go past 8% and now it's at 9.5% … So, my question to you is: Why should we still support you going forward with your economic policies and if the economic does not improve over the next years, why should we vote you back in?"

    1. Attack World Hunger and Poverty as if Our Life Depends on It: It Does. Anchor our foreign policy in the compassion for the poor that unites all the world's religions. Reduce the debts of impoverished countries. Shift foreign aid from buying weapons to feeding people. 2. Champion the Rights of Every Child, Woman and Man. Make America stand for justice, not expediency. Stop turning a blind eye to governments that abuse their own people. Ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. If punishing a foreign tyrant means,...

Hood shooting spree was not motivated by religion. For a real case-study, however, spend

Sex, what else? Rock the Vote, the celebrity weighted group that tries to reel in votes for Dems, recently released a video that encourages young folks to use sexual favors, or the withholding thereof, as a means of persuasion. Libs of the past made a career out of ridiculing abstinence programs. But some Rock...

Sadly, this isn't your run of the mill call for celebacy, for the video also instructs youth to use sex to get people to change their minds on this issue.
