    A Bush fundraiser Thursday in Indian Wells, Calif., is being hosted by former Missouri Sen. John Danforth, one of a group of former Republican lawmakers who have criticized the party for shifting focus to a Christian social agenda. In advance of the country club fundraiser for Bush’s Right to Rise PAC, critics distributed a 2005 op-ed Danforth wrote for the New York Times in which he slapped the party for moving away from fighting deficits to opposing gay marriage. And he accused the GOP of becoming a “political arm” of Christians. “As a senator, I worried every day about the...

    The Hill ^ | 1/13/15 | Laura Barron-Lopez
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday he will allow the Senate to vote on an amendment asking if they agree that climate change is impacting the planet. At his weekly press briefing, McConnell said "nobody is blocking any amendments" to legislation that would approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The GOP leader had promised to allow an open amendment process on the Keystone bill. But a measure proposed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) had raised questions about whether he would stick to that commitment. The Sanders measure asks whether lawmakers agree with the overwhelming consensus of scientists...

    Welcome to Washington, Congressman Grothman. Glenn Grothman's very first vote as a member of Congress, a vote in favor of John Boehner for Speaker, earned the ire of RedState.com Editor in Chief Erick Erickson who declared Grothman "all talk." "There will be no standing up by Glenn Grothman. Elections have a way of voluntarily and willingly neutering congressmen." Critics of Grothman are pointing to Grothman's willingness during the summer primary to criticize Boehner's leadership in the House and suggest that he would vote against the sitting Speaker in 2015. “I would have no problem looking for an alternative to Speaker...

    Townhall.com ^ | January 2, 2015 | Michael Barone
    There is a widespread assumption that President Obama has expanded the electorate and inspired booming voter turnout. One could make a case for that based on the 2008 election. But since then, not so much. Looking back over the past 15 years, the biggest surge in voter turnout came during George W. Bush's presidency. In the Obama years, turnout actually declined in both the 2012 presidential and the 2014 congressional elections. In 2000, about 105 million Americans voted for president. In 2004, 122 million did. That's a 16 percent rise, the largest between two presidential elections since 1948 and 1952....

Ted Cruz (R-TX) would hurt the Illinois Republican Party. “We definitely have our isolationist wing, which I completely disagree with,” he said, pointing to Sen.

    The Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) released a poll from On Message on Monday which gives a good indication of how Gov. Rick Scott was able to defeat former Gov. Charlie Crist in last month’s Florida general election. The poll of Floridians who voted in November shows Scott did better than expected with Hispanic voters while also taking a majority of male voters and seniors. Scott won the election 48 percent to 47 percent and did well with Hispanics, running almost dead even with Crist. The poll shows 49 percent of Hispanic voters backed the Democrat while 47 percent supported...

    A political crisis erupted in Sweden Tuesday when the extreme-right Sweden Democrats, the country's third largest party, vowed to block the new leftist-green government's budget, a move that could trigger new elections. "The Sweden Democrats will work towards taking down every government and every budget proposal that supports increased immigration at today's levels," the populist party's acting leader Mattias Karlsson said in a press conference. The party -- which holds the balance of power in parliament -- said its decision was in reaction to the minority government's pro-immigration policies. It pledged instead to support a rival budget proposal from the...

    Many like to claim that voter fraud is a myth. However, after watching this video, you’ll understand why people might be a little concerned about it happening. The Black Conservatives Fund released a video today showing a leading Louisiana Democrat encouraging people at a private Democrat party event to vote twice. According to the BCF press release, Opelousas Mayor Don Cravins Sr. spoke at a rally at the Charcoal Lounge in Opelousas on November 3, 2014 – the day before Louisiana’s primary election. His son, Don Cravins Jr., is the chief of staff for Louisiana’s embattled Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu....

    About a week after the Republican midterm romp, nearly 20 soon-to-be House GOP freshmen huddled for a private lunch on the third floor of the Capitol Hill Club. The mood was jubilant: Each had prevailed in a swing district, exploiting deep unhappiness with President Barack Obama and angst over the country’s future. But as they dug into platters of lasagna, salad and chicken, the newbies were given some sobering news. GOP officials explained that they would be among Democrats’ top 2016 targets — when they’d be up against a more diverse electorate — and they needed to start preparing now....

Despite various health issues over the years, Ginsburg insists that she is still of sound body at age 81 (her mind isn’t in question) and has no plans to retire before the end of President Obama’s term to ensure a Democratic replacement. If she keeps to that pledge, and presuming there are no other retirements in the next two years, the makeup of the Supreme Court could be a bigger campaign issue in 2016 than ever before.

Everyone was quite friendly, and it was a pleasant experience. They were so friendly, in fact, that they even offered a service to voters, advertised by a sign on the wall: Voters, presumably those who would have difficulty walking into the polling station due to disability, could wait in their idling cars, honk their horns and have someone aid them in voting curbside.

    Maine officials will conduct recounts in three races for the state Senate. In District 11, Democrat Jonathan Fulford challenged the outcome in his campaign against Senate Republican Leader Michael Thibodeau. Unofficial results show Thibodeau winning by 115 votes. A recount will also be done for District 21, where unofficial results show Democrat Nathan Libby defeating Republican Patricia Gagne by 64 votes. The third race is in District 25, where Democrat Catherine Breen beat Republican Cathleen Manchester by seven votes. If the results remain the same, Republicans will control the Senate with 20 members, compared with 15 Democrats.

He pleaded guilty in June to a corruption charge and was sentenced by Whitney on Oct. 14. At the time, Cannon’s attorneys asked that their client be admitted to a prison alcohol-treatment program.

The partisan makeup of the state Senate did not change, but Republicans are still just one lawmaker shy of their all-time high.

    In the end, there was no Republican wave. Indeed, ideologically it was barely a ripple. Unlike 2010, with the Tea Party, or 2006, when the Democrats took over, there was no all-encompassing agenda or over-arching theme. The Republicans won the US midterms – there’s no denying that – but they didn’t win as big as it first seems. This election cycle included not only conservative-friendly states but a disproportionate number of competitive states in which incumbent Democrats were stepping down. Democrats have not won Louisiana or Arkansas in a presidential election since 1996, Georgia since 1992 and Alaska since 1964....

Take a closer look at demography, geography and the road ahead for the parties, and it’s clear that the long-term winner of the 2014 midterms wasn’t the GOP at all. The long-term winner, in fact, wasn’t even on the ballot this year. Her name is Hillary Clinton.

    Whenever the media high foreheads or anyone else labels “progressive” those politicians and agendas that any fair-minded person would term way-out-left zany liberal, my ears bleed. Letting liberals get away with pretending they are progressive is akin to wiping out an entire population and calling it, “ethnic cleansing.” Oh wait, thatis what they call it. Yet from the sound of it you’d think it’s some kind of Martha Stewart disinfectant instead of rampant murder. To control language is to control meaning. Similarly, “progressivism” sounds jauntily forward-thinking but is actually a moldy graveyard of exhausted ideas, cousin to the long-dead tyrannies...

    ....ick Scott attended early services Sunday at Broward's oldest Baptist Church, softly pitching his re-election to black churchgoers. His four minutes of remarks to more than 500 congregants at First Baptist Church Piney Grove in Lauderdale Lakes concentrated on the biographical, touched on policy, and emphasized his faith. "Jesus Christ is my savior," he said to a chorus of amens and clapping. The governor described his "wonderful Christian mother and very wonderful Christian grandmother, and they told me all along that Jesus Christ was my savior. From a very young man I learned the importance of believing in Jesus Christ,...

    On Tuesday, every one of We the People who is old enough needs to get out and vote. Period. No excuses. The Democrats have nearly destroyed free, capitalist, constitutional America, and if they are not soundly, roundly, and decisively defeated, they will do so. Period. Repeat, PERIOD. Misleadership of the party – McConnell, Boehner, and their lackeys and toadies – have made it painfully clear that they are not conservatives I have no illusions that a Republican victory will take us back to the Reagan years. The misleadership of the party – McConnell, Boehner, and their lackeys and toadies –...

    Five common voter suppression tactics that experts look for: ELECTION DATE CHANGE Emails, robocalls or paper flyers placed in mailboxes or on car windshields telling voters that one political party votes on one day, and everyone else on another, are simply not true. INTIMIDATION In the past, billboards with ominous messages have appeared in neighborhoods, "observers" have threatened to challenge the eligibility of certain voters. ARREST THREATS Polling places do not have access to voters' criminal records. Anything that says you can be arrested for showing up to vote if you have unpaid parking tickets, outstanding arrest warrants or a...

In this video, taken from Mark Levin's Oct 31, 2014, radio show, he leads off with excerpts from that speech (hat tip to Americans for Prosperity) and adds his commentary in advance of the 2014 elections.

    Mike Huckabee said on his show recently that only about 40 million of the 80 million evangelical Christians in America are even registered to vote. Only about half of those actually vote in presidential elections and only half of them, about 10 million, vote in midterms like the important election coming up Nov. 4. His numbers seem pretty accurate according to various sources, yet nearly 80 percent of Americans say they’re Christians. As is often observed, if you don’t vote, you can’t complain. If Christians don’t vote in this election and help turn this country back to our Founders’ faith-based...
