” “A lot of times, when [Republicans] are on the stage with Libertarian candidates, we are agreeing with you guys–with libertarians–more than we are agreeing with Democrats,” says Kirsten Kukowski, press secretary for the Republican National Committee.
So should small-“L” libertarians vote for Republicans next week? “
While the GOP has consistently shown itself to be nothing but “democrat lite” and spineless to boot , we can think of one overwhelming reason to vote republican this year … Supreme Court … nothing more need be said .
” The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.
“ Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful (sic) graphic from the Post’s graphics team.” “

” As President Obama spoke this evening in Wisconsin, the crowd began to file out. Here’s video that captures some folks leaving, even as Obama’s voice can be heard in the background:
Mike Lowe, a political reporter, also made the observation on Twitter. “Some people –not a lot, but some — are leaving as the President is speaking,” wrote Lowe.
Obama spoke tonight at a rally for Mary Burke, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Wisconsin.
Attendees at a recent campaign event President Obama attended in Maryland also left early a couple weeks ago.”

” At some point, a compendium of condemnations against the Obama administration’s record of media transparency (actually, opacity) must be assembled. Notable quotations in this vein come from former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, who said, “It is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering”; New York Times reporter James Risen, who said, “I think Obama hates the press”; and CBS News’s Bob Schieffer, who said, “This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush’s did, and his before that.”
USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page has added a sharper edge to this set of knives. Speaking Saturday at a White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) seminar, Page called the current White House not only “more restrictive” but also “more dangerous” to the press than any other in history, a clear reference to the Obama administration’s leak investigations and its naming of Fox News’s James Rosen as a possible “co-conspirator” in a violation of the Espionage Act.”
Read the entire piece as some in the media are finally coming to rue the “Frankenstein’s monster” of irrelevancy that their own slavish devotion to Obama’s rise and continued
success re-election has given birth to .
The sycophants are finally getting a feel of the same bite on the ass that we , the public , have been enduring these past six years . The irony of the media , or parts of it anyway , finally coming to terms with their own self-destruction would be laughable if not for the terrible price this whole country has paid to see it come about .
” The FEC deadlocked in a crucial Internet campaign speech vote announced Friday, leaving online political blogging and videos free of many of the reporting requirements attached to broadcast ads — for now.
While all three GOP-backed members voted against restrictions, they were opposed by the three Democratic-backed members, including FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel, who said she will lead a push next year to try to come up with new rules government political speech on the Internet.
It would mark a major reversal for the commission, which for nearly a decade has protected the ability of individuals and interest groups to take to engage in a robust political conversation on the Internet without having to worry about registering with the government or keeping and reporting records of their expenses.
Ms. Ravel said she fears that in trying to keep the Internet open for bloggers, they’ve instead created a loophole for major political players to escape some scrutiny.
“ Some of my colleagues seem to believe that the same political message that would require disclosure if run on television should be categorically exempt from the same requirements when placed in the Internet alone,” said FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel in a statement. “As a matter of policy, this simply does not make sense.”
She said the FEC should no longer “turn a blind eye to the Internet’s growing force in the political arena,” and she vowed to force a conversation next year on what changes to make.
The three Republican-backed commissioners, though, said in a joint statement that Ms. Ravel’s plans would stifle what’s become the “virtual free marketplace of political ideas and democratic debate.”
Washington Times reports on the latest Statist move from our most Statist administration ever
” Democrat Vincent Sheheen of South Carolina referred to his Republican opponent, sitting governor Nikki Haley, as a “whore” in an apparent slip of the tongue during a recent campaign rally.
” We are going to escort whore out the door,” said Sheheen at a Thursday night event in Florence. The Democrat immediately recognizes his mistake and corrects himself. “We’re going to escort her out the door,” he says, smiling.”

” At a Democratic rally in Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton’s attempt to attack “trickle-down economics,” resulted in a spectacularly odd statement.
Clinton defended raising the minimum wage saying “Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs, they always say that.”
She went on to state that businesses and corporations are not the job creators of America. “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,” the former Secretary of State said.
Clinton’s comment will likely be used frequently to attack her as another big-government Democrat. She is seen by many as already running for president in 2016. “
This is rich coming from a life-long lawyer and politician , two trades that have yet to produce a single honest job in the entire history of mankind … It takes a government to create a job …

” A group of conservative students protesting Hillary Clinton during her campaign rally at Oakland University in Michigan were threatened by a left-leaning Democrat, who vowed he would infect them with Ebola if they didn’t cease and desist.
“ I just came from Texas, I have Ebola, and now I’m going to give it to you,” said Larry Mitchell, 63, a member of the St. Clair Shores Democratic Club,on a video captured by Campus Reform.
The 25 or so students were corralled off by campus police and Secret Service agents at a site far from the event hall, where Ms. Clinton, the former Secretary of State, was speaking in support of two Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate and governor, The Blaze reported.
Witnesses said Mr. Mitchell approached them, threatened them — and then licked his hand and tried to wipe his saliva on them, Campus Reform reported. He also called them “fascists” and said their libertarian political beliefs were the causes of Ebola’s spread. “

” Calling it ““an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.,” Senator Charles Grassley, ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, is criticizing an executive order issued by the president that would allow at least 100,000 Haitian nationals into the United States to be “reunited with their families.”
“ Which countries are next on President Obama’s list?” Mr. Grassley said. “Will there by medical screenings before entry? Will work permits be granted automatically? How will this affect American workers?”
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the branch of the Department of Homeland Security that handles immigration benefits cases, announced Friday the program to unite Haitians already living in the U.S. with family members abroad will ramp up in 2015.
At that time the State Department’s National Visa Center will begin notifying families who may be eligible to take part in the program. Those immigrants will allowed to apply for work permits while waiting for issuance of their permanent visas.
The agency said the program will expedite “safe, legal and orderly migration.”
A similar program that reunited Central American children with their parents had a fraud rate of about 70%. “

If the CDC hadn’t been corrupted and politicized into the “State Nanny” , monitoring every aspect of our lives from guns to organic foods and stuck to dealing with actual , you know , diseases they would be better prepared to deal with the Obama Dem’s “Open Borders , Americans be damned policy” consequences .
