  • 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.
  • Why Sen. Harry Reid is pulling for a conservative Republican

    LA Times ^ | 060510 | Kathleen Hennessey and Ashley Powers
    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...

    Against the picturesque backdrop of the Red Rock Canyon, Reid and Obama also got moving, doing some exercises together. The Las Vegas Review-Journal described their light workout as this, “Standing side by side, the first lady and Reid puts their hands together as if in prayer and did a "mountain pose" with the children standing around them in a half circle and stretching, too.”

    Now, with Democrats at risk of sustaining huge election losses in November, unions are ready to spend piles of cash to save as many incumbents as possible. 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.

    snippet That meddling is about to get even more intense as the Tea Party Express buys two hours next week on the top-rated AM talk station in Las Vegas to promote and fund raise for Angle. The Tea Party Express "basically told us to go to hell," said Nevada tea party activist Debbie Landis of Reno, whose group, Action Is Brewing, has about 7,000 members on its e-mail list. "They told us, 'Listen, this is none of your business. This has nothing to do with Nevada, this is the Tea Party Express.' In my view, that's not how grassroots is...

    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.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has knocked down his leading Republican challenger, paving the way for a potential fall fight with a tea party favorite who may be easier to beat. Reid’s unceasing attacks on his biggest-name challenger — former Nevada Republican Party Chairwoman Sue Lowden — have dragged her down into a tight three-way race with lawyer Danny Tarkanian and former Assemblywoman Sharron Angle, who has won the endorsement of the Tea Party Express. A Democratic-funded poll released last week showed Angle edging out Lowden, with Tarkanian in third place. It was the first time in months that...

    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.
