The Math for the 2014 Senate Races is Wrong

Posted August 1, 2013

Pundits keep trying to determine the number of Senate seats that Republicans must win to take over the majority in the Senate after the 2014 elections.  No matter how favorable the chances of Republican pickups might be in November 2014, and no matter how many seats the Republicans actually win, the math that is being bandied about is wrong.

To actually have a working majority in the Senate, rather than just a nominal majority, Republicans need to have a post-election total of 54 seats or more, not merely 51.

Why do Republicans need three extra seats?  There are three reasons why, actually.  John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire to put names to the reasons.

McCain: Hillary a 'Rock Star,' Fox News 'Schizophrenic'

August 1, 2013

In a lengthy interview with the left-wing New Republic, John McCain, the Republican Party's 2008 nominee blurted out his affection for Hillary Clinton more than once.

At one point the Arizona Senator said that choosing between Rand Paul or Clinton for president in 2016 would be a "tough choice." He then went on to call the former Secretary of State a "rock star" and criticize Fox News as "schizophrenic" over the issue of immigration reform.

McCain's sudden affection for Clinton is in sharp contrast to the outrage he expressed over the four dead Americans in Libya who were left unprotected by Clinton's State Department.

Lawmakers, Aides Not Happy Obamacare Forces Them to Buy Unsubsidized Plans

Posted August 1, 2013

Members of Congress and their aides will be forced to pay up to $11,000 more a year to buy health insurance on the Obamacare exchanges once the state exchanges become implemented in less than nine weeks. 

Obamacare, as it is written, does not give the federal government a way of subsidizing the insurance plans of federal workers in Congress like it currently does. Republicans wanted legislators and their aides to play by the same rules as their constituents, so the GOP inserted a provision requiring congressional workers to purchase insurance from the exchanges.

Big Brother In Oakland? There Might Be An App Coming For That (Analysis)

Posted August 1, 2013

In the next year, authorized personnel in Oakland will be able access multiple video feeds from a large swath of the city, along with real-time information such as weather and detailed crime information all on in one location, even on their laptop and mobile device.

While officials say the $2 million set to be approved later this month by the Oakland City Council for the second phase of a virtual data warehouse called a Domain Awareness Center (DAC) will be an “immense time-saving tool” for police and fire, the wide-ranging ability of the system to cobble together disparate video streams from across city streets, including the O.Co Coliseum may make privacy advocates cringe. The system will also be able to pull in data obtained by license plate readers.

Harry Reid Helps Warren Buffett Acquire Big Energy Firm

Posted August 1, 2013

It would make Buffett's holding company the nation's 'largest utility holding company.'

Even if you're Warren Buffett--billionaire investor, founder of Berkshire Hathaway, and Democratic donor--it helps to have friends in high places. Through his holding company MidAmerican Energy, Buffett is currently atttempting to purchase NV Energy, a Nevada-based energy firm, and he's getting some big help from that state's senior U.S. senator, Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Obama Admin to Create 'Nudge' Squad to Shape Americans' Behavior

Posted July 31, 2013

On Tuesday, Fox News obtained documents showing that the federal government is initiating a program designed to “nudge” Americans toward particular behaviors. The “Behavioral Insights Team” to be formed would work with the White House, as well as the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture, among others. The document, emailed by White House senior adviser on social and behavioral sciences Maya Shenker to a university professor, states, “Behavioral sciences can be used to help design public policies that work better, cost less, and help people achieve their goals.”

Black Self-Sabotage

Posted July 31, 2013

If we put ourselves into the shoes of racists who seek to sabotage black upward mobility, we couldn't develop a more effective agenda than that followed by civil rights organizations, black politicians, academics, liberals and the news media. Let's look at it.

First, weaken the black family, but don't blame it on individual choices. You have to preach that today's weak black family is a legacy of slavery, Jim Crow and racism. The truth is that black female-headed households were just 18 percent of households in 1950, as opposed to about 68 percent today. In fact, from 1890 to 1940, the black marriage rate was slightly higher than that of whites. Even during slavery, when marriage was forbidden for blacks, most black children lived in biological two-parent families. In New York City, in 1925, 85 percent of black households were two-parent households. A study of 1880 family structure in Philadelphia shows that three-quarters of black families were two-parent households.

Senate approves Obama’s picks to labor board

Posted July 31, 2013

The Democratic picks are Kent Hirozawa, the NLRB’s chief counsel; Mark Gaston Pearce, the board’s current chairman; and Nancy Schiffer, a former AFL-CIO associate general counsel.

The Republican nominees are a pair of attorneys who have worked with employers on labor issues; Philip Miscimarra and Harry Johnson.

Without at least one of the confirmations the NLRB would’ve been in limbo by late August when Pearce’s five-year term expires — leaving the agency with just two members, short of the three legally required to conduct business.

Tuesday’s action is part of the partisan truce reached two weeks ago that also allowed Obama to fill the top posts at the FBI, the Labor Department, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

HHS Planned for High-Level Hiring Surge on Day Obamacare Passed

Posted July 31, 2013

According to documents we released this week, on the day Obamacare passed, HHS obtained permission from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to cast aside normal hiring procedures in order to hire 1,814 highly-paid, top-level administrators to expedite Obamacare implementation.

According to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch, OPM Director John Berry gave HHS Deputy Assistant Secretary for Human Resources Denise Wells extraordinary “direct-hire appointing authority” (DHA) in order to bypass normal channels and, in Berry’s words, “hire quickly in order to execute the President’s directive with respect to implementing health care reform.” In all, HHS was granted permission to utilize what Wells termed the DHA “valuable human capital recruitment tool” to hire 1,814 GS 13–15 employees, including:

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City's crackdown on big, sugary sodas is staying on ice.

An appeals court ruled Tuesday that New York City's Board of Health exceeded its legal authority and acted unconstitutionally when it tried to put a size limit on soft drinks served in city restaurants.

Matt Bevin Endorsed by Madison Project PAC Over Mitch McConnell

Posted July 30, 2013

Madison Project Chairman Jim Ryun“The only way to change the lackluster leadership in the Republican Party is to replace the career politicians who lead the party. Matt Bevin is brave enough to storm the castle of the GOP Establishment and challenge the sitting minority leader, and we are proud to stand with him and with millions of conservatives who feel disenfranchised by unprincipled GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell.”

Washington, DC – The Madison Project PAC announced today that it is endorsing Louisville businessman Matt Bevin for Senate against Senator Mitch McConnell in next year’s Republican primary for Senate.

“Earlier this year, Senator Rand Paul illustrated the problem with the GOP establishment by noting that they have grown stale and moss-covered,” said Daniel Horowitz of the Madison Project. “After 28 years in the Senate and over 10 years in leadership, Senator Mitch McConnell has become the embodiment of stale moss-covered leadership.  It’s not just his votes for Democrat proposals, such as open borders, bailouts, fiscal cliff tax hikes, debt limit increases, green energy stimulus, and funding for Obamacare, it is the fact that McConnell has refused to use his leadership role to fight for conservatives.  On so many major legislative battles important to conservatives, McConnell has refused to fight and has remained ambiguous about his own position until he felt a clear signal from his political weather vane.  His behavior during the amnesty fight is a consummate example of McConnell following from behind instead of leading from the front.

Chris Matthews: Ted Cruz is a terrorist

Posted August 1, 2013

On Wednesday’s “Hardball” on MSNBC, host Chris Matthews continued his attack on Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, but this time took it a step further.

Matthews had been comparing Cruz to former Wisconsin Republican Sen. Joseph McCarthy over the past few weeks based on his looks and demeanor. But Matthews introduced a new description into his attack on Cruz for his suggested tactic of threatening a government shutdown to stop Obamacare — “terrorist.”

Texas lawmakers can't agree on road funding, third special session called

Posted August 1, 2013 ~ Terri Hall

The second called special session of the Texas legislature began with all eyes on Texas' fetal pain bill after a filibuster scuttled it -- transportation appearing an afterthought, but this one ended in yet another flop. Texas Governor Rick Perry immediately called a third special session 30 minutes later to address transportation funding. State lawmakers had initially agreed on a road funding bill at the end of the first special session and took up the same bill in the second.

However, changes in the bill and new ideas put on the table ended up causing the whole thing to fizzle. The 'compromise' bill decided by a conference committee couldn't garner the needed 100 votes in the Texas House. According to a tweet from a Houston Chronicle reporter, Speaker Joe Straus is said to want a road funding crisis and would rather see no bill pass in order to push tax hikes in the next regular session in 2015. When lawmakers were expected to pass the final version in the Senate Monday, not enough senators even showed up to get the required votes for passage there either.

Cruz ‘perplexed’ by GOP attacks on him, won’t back down in ‘Defund Obamacare’ fight

Posted August 1, 2013

Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is “perplexed” by GOP attacks on his effort to defund Obamacare and has no intention of backing down, despite complaints from other Senate Republicans that his crusade is not realistic and could potentially damage the party’s chances in the 2014 midterm elections.

“There may be people who lob attacks at him, but he’s not going to return those attacks,” Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told The Daily Caller, taking a firm stand in a battle that could determine the GOP’s strategic playbook heading into the 2014 midterms.

Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary

Posted July 31, 2013

Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee as a replacement for outgoing-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.”

A letter  dated July 25 and signed by CBC Chairwoman Rep. Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, urges President Barack Obama to consider Jackson Lee for the position formerly held by Janet Napolitano, the first woman to hold the position. Napolitano resigned earlier this month to become president of the University of California.

Exclusive–Cruz: Obamacare Subsidy 'Chicago-Style' Vote Buying

Posted July 30, 2013

Cruz continued:
It’s essentially encouraging liar loans, encouraging fraud for people who come forward and say, "I qualify for a subsidy," and the Obama administration saying, "we’re not going to check on anything, we’re just going to take your word for it and grant you the subsidy." That is all Chicago-style politics designed to buy as many votes as possible. It is why the fight is now or never.

Yes, the RNC Really DID Support Federal Oversight of State Elections

Posted July 30, 2013

On a July day in 2006, the entire Republican caucus was invited to hear a private debate in a meeting room in the Capitol. Scores of GOP members attended, including House Speaker Dennis Hastert. At issue was whether the federal government should continue to have control over every election-law change in sixteen states, including Texas, California, Florida, and South Carolina. Federal power over the states was set to expire. On one side of the debate was lawyer Mike Carvin, who argued that federal oversight should end.

Carvin's opponent arguing for continued federal power to review election changes like voter ID wasn't a Democrat, or even a zealot from the NAACP.

Instead, opposing Carvin's constitutionalist viewpoint and advocating for federal oversight of state elections was the former chief counsel to the Republican National Committee (RNC). Also on that side was a group of RNC consultants and lawyers who remained active in RNC policy advancing this viewpoint in the following years.

The Sad Joke From John Cornyn’s Office

Posted July 29, 2013

John Cornyn says he yanked his name off Mike Lee’s Obamacare defunding letter because Mike Lee’s letter only pertains to partially defunding Obamacare and John Cornyn wants to fully defund it.

One might then assume John Cornyn will vote against a continuing resolution unless Obamacare is fully defunded. But no, that’s not what he is doing.

John Cornyn has turned into a sad joke and Mike Lee’s letter is important because it is highlighting these punchlines of past their prime politicians who preach, but won’t practice what they preach.

John Cornyn has no intention of fighting. Neither does Mitch McConnell. Neither does Lamar Alexander. Neither does Richard Burr. Neither do most of the Republicans. They will send you fundraising appeals telling you to stand with the GOP against Obamacare, please send them money.

But when confronted with the challenge of opposing continuing funding of the government if that funding goes to Obamacare, their testicular fortitude runs down their leg and out the door. They rally their usual op-ed voices to call conservative dumb. They preemptively surrender. They behave worse than the French.

Sen. Ted Cruz Promotes Dontfundit.com, Says Grassroots Conservatives Can Stop ObamaCare

Sen. Ted Cruz didn't sugarcoat the odds against preventing ObamaCare from going into effect during a rip-roaring speech at the Western Conservative Summit Saturday in Denver.

Then again, a senatorial hopeful with a 2 percent poll rating isn't supposed to win the general election by 16 points.

The conservative darling introduced the new web site dontfundit.com at the fourth annual Summit, simulcast live Saturday to delegates attending the Arizona Western Conservative Summit in Scottsdale. The site includes a petition against ObamaCare as well as contact information for Republican Senators to convince them to support the funding ban.

Justice for James: Black Cop Shoots Unarmed White Veteran in Orange, TX over Racial Slur

Posted July 29, 2013

Justice for Trayvon Martin? How about Justice for James Whitehead? James Whitehead was a white veteran who had recently come back from war. Orange, TX Police Officer Robert Arnold (who has a history of violence) shot and killed unarmed James Whitehead. Arnold is black. Arnold was not in his uniform and did not have a badge. Whitehead got into a verbal altercation about a bad part for his vehicle. James Whitehead did not ever get violent or attack Arnold or anyone else. Whitehead was wrong to get into a verbal altercation but at most he would have gotten a ticket and a fine. Whitehead decided to stop arguing and just leave and that is when Arnold shot the unarmed man dead right on the spot. Arnold was fired for the incident and for his other violent past incidents. Even Arnold's fellow police officers wanted Arnold to be charged with murder. Arnold was never charged and got away with murder. Arnold has enlisted race baiter Lawyer Cade Bernsen (the white Al Sharpton) to sue the city claiming he was fired because he was black and not because he shot an unarmed white man.

Why is there no outrage or protests from Al Sharpton for the countless times a black person kills and unarmed White, Hispanic or Black person?

(UPDATED: RNC Responds to PJ Media) EXCLUSIVE: RNC Operatives Join Holder's Campaign Against Texas, Several Other States

Special Saturday Update Posted July 27, 2013

Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday that the Justice Department will seek to recapture Texas and return it to federal oversight for approval of all election law changes such as photo voter identification. Holder’s move comes after the Supreme Court in June freed Texas and other states from the requirement that all state election laws be approved in Washington, D.C. Holder’s move prompted outrage from Texas Senators Ted Cruz, John Cornyn and Governor Rick Perry.

The three should also be angry with the Republican National Committee. PJ Tatler has learned that staff at the RNC have been spending RNC donations plotting to do exactly what Eric Holder is seeking to do – return Texas and other states to federal oversight.

According to RNC sources frustrated with the race-based effort, paid RNC consultant Tom Hofeller (thofeller@rnchq.org) is spending RNC donations to develop race-based criteria to grab Texas and other states and place them back into federal receivership. The sources tell Tatler that nearly all of the members of the actual committee have been kept in the dark about this effort, and no mention is ever made in RNC fundraising efforts — for good reason, because GOP donors would be furious.
