  • Conservative Majority Fund Has Another Political Attack Ad With Obama Admitting He Is A Muslim

    07/28/2012 3:31:31 PM PDT · by Fred Garvin-MP · 65 replies
    This attack ad was made by the same group who released the controversial attack ad early this week on Fox News Channel, ABC and ESPN that questioned Obama's missing records. The newly formed group is called the 'Conservative Majority Fund' backed by big money out of Arlington,VA. Their recent ad this week caused a uproar with liberals and the media. There are a lot of doubters who disregard the fact that it is no big deal for a American president to be a Muslim, especially in a time of war against people who are Islamic extremist. It's so dangerous that...

    LAS VEGAS (June 7) -- A long-brewing feud between tea party factions over Tuesday's Nevada Republican primary election has boiled over into bitter e-mail exchanges in which activists are lambasting one another as "turncoats" and "representative of a liberal mentality." The dispute pits representatives of the Tea Party Express, the national group that has endorsed Sharron Angle to be Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid's fall opponent, against Nevada activists who resent outside groups trying to influence an election in which several of the leading candidates have laid claim to tea party bona fides.

    If Republican Sharron Angle wins her party's Senate primary Tuesday, it will be a victory for the soft-spoken perpetual candidate, Nevada's conservative diehards, the national "tea party" movement and underdogs everywhere. It will also be a huge win for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. The Nevada Democrat has been working for months — some might say years — to cast his own opponent in the against-all-odds drama that is his reelection campaign. With dismal approval ratings and an anti-incumbent political climate, Reid is so vulnerable that Washington insiders have been debating who the next majority leader might be. But Reid,...

    As the Nevada GOP Senate primary approaches its unpredictable conclusion, there is a potential disaster brewing for Silver State Republicans come fall. Sue Lowden, once the clear leader in the race has imploded thanks to politically asinine comments about bartering with chickens for health care. Never mind that bartering does continue to take place, when it comes to politics, such an unforced error is devastating. Moreover, Lowden’s questionable partial ownership and nondisclosure of her campaign bus has given her campaign an air of underhandedness. Add to Lowden’s woes her insider’s insider status as the former Nevada GOP Party Chair and...

The Hill reported this month that AFSCME and the SEIU have committed $94 million between them to bail out mortally wounded Democrats, including Sen. Reid. But first, they want a gesture of good faith in return. That's why Sen. Reid is in a rush to get this horrible legislation passed.

    Sue Lowden has touted her career as a businesswoman on the campaign trail, mocking Sen. Harry Reid for having spent scant years in the private sector. The former state senator and Republican Party chairwoman, who hopes to be her party’s nominee against Reid, has been described by national political reporters as a wealthy casino owner worth $50 million or more. Her story — she came from nothing — is one of uplift and socioeconomic mobility. For Republican audiences fond of the free market, it’s an appealing message: A hardworking entrepreneur who has to meet payroll and so will keep intrusive...

    It was 2007, and the Southwest was in the grips of speculative fever. The land frenzy was particularly acute in Las Vegas, where major casino companies were in the middle of ambitious expansions, feeding the demand for housing and driving prices skyward. Danny Tarkanian, now a leading Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, was looking to share in the good times. With the development industry booming, a friend and partner in Tarkanian’s real estate firm approached him about an investment opportunity: Dignitary Downs, an “equestrian destination resort” in Anza, Calif., complete with a 200-room hotel, restaurant and jockey school, all on...

    By now it’s become a disturbingly familiar pattern for conservatives: A candidate who seems promising at first glance wins a Republican primary, and then suddenly the press — often fed by a Democratic rival’s opposition-research team — begins looking in-depth at every controversial and regrettable statement and act that candidate ever made. Just days after it’s too late to change the nominee, the choice of GOP primary voters appears to be an egregious mistake. The most recent, and perhaps most extreme, example of this phenomenon is Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul. Overnight, Paul changed from a soft-spoken, genially libertarian version...

    Carson City — Surging Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle has had to defend her support of a prison program that her opponents linked to Scientology. Trying to head off that theme, Angle has eliminated from her campaign website mention of prominent members of the church, whom she worked with on other legislative efforts. Angle has removed the claim that she, along with actresses Kelly Preston and Jenna Elfman, approached Sen. John Ensign to sponsor legislation prohibiting school employees from requiring students to take psychotropic drugs, such as anti-depressants. Preston and Elfman are high-profile members of the Church of Scientology, which...

    Several states with competitive Senate races saw their unemployment numbers drop in April, but that trend was bucked by Nevada, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) faces low approval numbers and is a top target for Republicans. Unemployment in Reid’s state, one of the hardest hit by the housing crisis, jumped from 13.4 percent in March. The state had 40,000 fewer jobs in April 2010 compared to April 2009, according to statistics released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    There is no doubt that Sharron Angle is the only real choice for Nevadans, and for Americans. She is the conservative heavy weight in the race for the U.S. Senate. It could be said that the clouds have lifted with a chance for the sun to shine on “The Silver State.” It could also be said that America’s strength is directly proportionate to its conservative members in Congress. And with Sharron Angle in the U.S. Senate, America will clearly be a stronger, more vibrant Nation. Sharron Angle isn’t just talk. She’s actually got a record to prove that she’s conservative.

    A new Patriot Majority/Public Policy Polling (D) survey of Nevada finds that former state Rep. Sharron Angle leads in the Republican primary for Senate, over establishment candidate and former state Sen. Sue Lowden and former UNLV basketball player Danny Tarkanian. The numbers: Angle 29%, Lowden 26%, Tarkanian 24%, followed by state Rep. Chad Christensen and businessman John Chachas at 5% each. The poll of likely GOP primary voters has a ±3.8% margin of error. A recent Mason-Dixon poll showed Angle surging into second place, trailing Lowden by 30%-25%, with Tarkanian at 22%. Lowden began the primary as the establishment favorite,...

    If Republicans are "making love to Wall Street," as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., puts it, one wonders if there's a printable description for Reid's torrid affair with the financial sector. Reid's slur was the standard Democratic attack -- that Republicans, by opposing regulations, are whoring for the big banks. It's a dishonest attack, belied by basic facts, but President Obama and other Democrats get away with it. But look between the sheets, and you'll see it's Reid in bed with Wall Street.

Reid knows his new health care entitlement plan is so unpopular in Nevada that he and his liberal allies attacked me for revealing at a town hall meeting that many patients and doctors in our state have bartered, bargained and negotiated for their health care services at reduced costs. Bartering, chickens and goats: these three words have put me at the epicenter of talk shows, late night TV and political commentary....

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Nevada shows Reid earning 39% to 41% support, depending on his opponent, well below the 50% safe mark for incumbents. His numbers are virtually identical to findings in the previous survey earlier this month and in line with surveys since last fall when his support began trending down.

They are so far to the right ... we need your help to elect Democrats,” Reid said. Reid was in Northern Nevada speaking at Democratic county conventions in Carson City, Douglas County and Reno.

He spoke at several Democratic county conventions in northern Nevada on Saturday. “The most important thing we've done for the country and the world is health care,” he said according to the Nevada Appeal.

    Concerns are mounting that Senate Majority Leader Reid might try to advance a hastily drafted immigration reform bill to satisfy demands that legislation is introduced by May 1. Sources said such a move would be disruptive to business and labor groups, which resumed delicate negotiations Wednesday to find compromises on several issues, including how to bring workers into the country to meet labor needs. Talks had broken down last month but resumed in hopes of producing a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would be introduced by Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. Reid and congressional Democratic leaders are...

    Reid to play chicken on Wall Street reform, daring GOP to filibusterBy Alexander Bolton - 04/20/10 11:31 AM ET Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has decided to play a game of political chicken with Senate Republicans, daring them to kill a Wall Street reform bill. Reid said he plans to move ahead with immediate consideration of the financial regulatory reform bill, despite a GOP pledge to filibuster the measure. “Remember, there are only 59 of us, so if a single Republican is not willing to join with us, there will be no Wall Street reform,” Reid said. “Republicans will...

    Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D) of Nevada announced Thursday he will hold a crucial procedural vote on financial reform Monday, even before an agreement is reached on the legislation. Some Republicans, such as the moderate Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, expressed concern that by scheduling a vote before there is a bipartisan accord and before Senator Reid knows that he has the 60 votes needed to halt a filibuster, the majority leader is risking the progress the parties are making. But Reid said on Thursday that he’s “not going to waste any more time of the American people while...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) she is “fine” with the Senate taking up immigration reform before climate change legislation. Pelosi made the comments in a private meeting on Tuesday, according to a Democratic aide. The aide stressed that the discussion was not about doing one of the high-profile issues instead of the other. “The conversation was really about timing, not an either-or kind of thing, but timing,” said the aide, who described the talks as a routine meeting of bicameral leaders. “It is all about what the Senate can move first and pass,”...

    MIGHT the Republicans seize the Senate from the Democrats in November’s mid-term elections? It looks a tremendously long shot; at present the Democrats control 59 of the 100 seats, and even the most optimistic list of probable and possible pick-ups sees the Republicans adding at most only eight of the ten seats they would need for control. A 50-50 split would favour the Democrats, because in that case the vice-president, Joe Biden, would hold a casting vote. But the Republicans are hoping to get most of the way there; and they are hoping, above all, to inflict a deep humiliation...

    Immigration reform, once considered dead for the year, has been thrown a lifeline by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., whose revival of the legislation could energize his state's Hispanic voters and help save himself from defeat in November. Reid made a startling announcement earlier this month at an immigration rally held in downtown Las Vegas. He told the crowd of about 6,000 people that, despite a packed congressional agenda, he wanted Congress to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill this year. "We're going to pass immigration reform, just as we passed health care reform," Reid said, adding that the...
