  • Democratic turnout flyer: ‘If you want to prevent another Ferguson…’

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Political Insider ^ | October 21, 2014 | Jim Galloway and Daniel Malloy
    The Democratic effort to pump up the African-American vote in Georgia just took an interesting turn. A reader has sent us this early-voting turnout mailer sent out by the Georgia Democratic party that focuses on the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Mo. It contains an interesting line that concedes the problem of low interest among black voters: “If we want a better, safer future for our children, it’s up to us to vote for change. The choices may not always be perfect, but the cost of inaction is simply too great.” Here’s a complete look: And...

    Everything you need to know about Beltway nepotism, corporate cronyism and corruption can be found in the biography of Robert Hunter Biden. Where are the Occupy Wall Street rabble-rousers and enemies of elitist privilege when you need them? Straining their neck muscles to look the other way. The youngest son of Vice President Joe Biden made news last week after The Wall Street Journal revealed he had been booted from the Navy Reserve for cocaine use. His drug abuse was certainly no surprise to the Navy, which issued him a waiver for a previous drug offense before commissioning him as...

    The empirical evidence of an airborne Ebola Strain is overwhelming Hat Tip GWP - Patrick Sawyer was the American businessman, who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia, then collapsed after he got off a plane to Nigeria and died July 25. He was the first patient in Nigeria with the Ebola virus. The Nigerian authorities have refused to release the names of other passengers on the plane with Mr. Sawyer, or notify the media of their status.

    U.S. Army warns of potential 'airborne' Ebola Virus could be transmitted by means other than contact NEW YORK – While Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization officials continue to insist Ebola cannot be transmitted by air from one person to another, an Army manual clearly warns the virus could be an airborne threat in certain circumstances. The handbook published by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, USAMRID, titled “USAMRID’s Medical Management of Biological Casualties Handbook,” is now in its seventh edition. The most recent edition was published in 2011, with more than 100,000 copies distributed...

    Kevin LoriaOctober 6, 2014 The idea that Ebola could go airborne is terrifying. Once you are infected, few diseases are more likely to kill you — and death by hemorrhagic fever, diarrhea and vomiting often accompanied by bleeding and organ failure, sounds particularly awful. At present it's hard to get infected — healthcare workers and family members caring for victims are at highest risk — but that would change if the virus were to mutate so that it could be transmitted through the air while keeping its present lethality. That's a nightmare scenario. But it's more the stuff of bad...

    House Republicans are on track to make gains this cycle, but two weeks before Election Day, it’s still unclear whether the party will procure a wave of double-digit gains in their quest to extend the majority. Members of Congress and operatives alike note this is a toxic time for Democrats on the ballot that should result in huge losses for the president’s party. But a race-by-race evaluation of the House map shows Republicans are more likely in a position to pick up a net of around six seats this cycle. “After two successful cycles for House Republicans, the playing field...

    AUSTIN, Texas -- With Wendy Davis trailing in the polls behind her Republican opponent Greg Abbott, her Democratic supporters have resorted to a desperate, eleventh-hour attack. However it is not the heavily-criticized wheelchair ad; this is a brand new attack, launched on Monday, the first day of early voting. This time, the Democrats' messaging brings with it an added element of race-baiting, twisting Abbott's words to insinuate that he is opposed to interracial marriages, ignoring the well-known fact that Abbott's wife Cecelia is Hispanic. The issue originated with a San Antonio Express-News article from Sunday, in which Austin Bureau Chief...

The front of the flier blares: "Kay Hagan doesn't win! Obama's impeachment will begin! Vote in 2014." The words are superimposed over a grainy reproduction of a photograph of what appears to be a lynching. Someone tucked the flier under McNair's windshield wiper while her car was parked at her church, Kingdom Impact Global Ministries on Murchison Road. "My daughter said, 'Mom, look in the background.

    Much has been written about the right-ward shift of the Republican Party, but far less about a mounting left-wing movement among Democrats. While the media tends to dismiss the right-wingers of the GOP as “wingnuts,” it typically refrains from categorizing even the extreme left of the Democratic Party in a similar manner. President Barack Obama has accelerated this leftward trend in two ways. First, his administration, particularly in contrast to that of former President Bill Clinton, has laid the rhetorical basis for a move to the left by shifting the party agenda on social, environmental and economic policies. Clinton may...

    Lots of folks think Democrats oppose voter ID laws because they want to cheat and such laws interfere with their plans. That’s an attractive explanation, but it ignores the far more complex architecture of voter ID opposition. Here’s the real reasons Democrats oppose voter ID. Understanding these three reasons will help you decode the whole narrative behind voter ID. 1. Opposition to Voter ID Is a Base-Mobilization Tool. Simply, Democrats and civil rights groups spend millions of dollars opposing voter ID because they are trying to scare minority voters into thinking that Jim Crow is back. If Jim Crow is...

Every party has a bad offyear sometimes; Republicans did in 2006. Sooner or later they recover. But in the crosstabs of polls and in party strategists' moves I see evidence that one group Democrats have been counting on is moving away from them: Hispanics. Hispanics voted 71 percent for Barack Obama in 2012, 20 points above his national average of 51 percent. According to Gallup, Hispanics' latest Obama job approval has sunk to 44...

    If Republicans had said what Michelle Obama just did about her own husband’s voters, they’d be burned at the stake. Apparently anticipating problems with Democrat turnout on Election Day, Obama seems to think she knows what the issue is: Democrat voters are ignorant and lazy. The first lady was speaking Wednesday at a campaign rally for the Democrat candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, when she said Democrat voters too often feel that they have more important things to do than vote – like sleeping. That’s if they even realize that there’s an election being held at all. In...

    Failings of this Administration and its efforts to divert public attention It’s interesting to note that the Democrats are attempting to use the global warming/climate change “crisis” to divert attention from the many other crises for which they are responsible. It’s like that cheap carney magician pulling yards of silk out of his sleeve after making a rabbit disappear into his hat. Interestingly enough, global warming is one of the few crises that the Obama administration has not created, but is using to advance its agenda. They are certainly responsible for enough scandals and failures to warrant a Constitutional Convention....

    WASHINGTON—Vice President Joe Biden ’s son Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve this year after testing positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the matter. Hunter Biden, a lawyer by training who is now a managing partner at an investment company, had been commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve, a part-time position. But after failing a drug test last year, his brief military career ended. Mr. Biden, 44 years old, decided to pursue military service relatively late, beginning the direct-commission process to become a public-affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. Because of his age—43...

    Filmmaker Michael Moore took to Twitter early Thursday morning to slam conservatives for what he believes is their role in exacerbating the Ebola outbreak. In a series of tweets, Moore took to blaming everyone from the NRA to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, congressional Republicans, to Wall Street bankers. Many have used Ebola to advance their respective political agendas, and Democrats have latched onto a claim by the head of the National Institute of Health that budget cuts to medical research have prevented the NIH from developing a vaccine for the deadly virus. On the other side, several have suggested the...

    Despite outrage from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats about billionaires like the Koch brothers donating to the GOP, statistics show Democrats are outraising Republicans this election season. Sheila Krumholz of the Center for Responsive Politics estimated, "the Democratic senatorial campaign committee has raised $111 million compared to $82 million for their Republican counterpart." Even when you take all sources of money, from all donors for all races, the Democrats still lead. "It's about $595 million for the Democrats, and about $450 million for the Republicans," Krumholz said. In the run-up to the Nov. 4 election, the Republican...

    Congressional Democrats are siding with the Obama administration — and against a growing number of Americans — when it comes to a government mandated travel ban from Ebola hotspots in Africa. While 67 percent of Americans support the idea of a travel ban, many elected Democrats are decidedly against the idea. The Hill reports, “House Democrats are pushing back hard against proposals to institute a travel ban in the fight against the Ebola virus.” Texas Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee told The Hill, “I don’t think we gain anything by spending our time talking about quarantines [of entire countries]. We...

    Two Democratic lawmakers in Pennsylvania traded gunfire with a would-be robber Tuesday night near the state capitol in Harrisburg. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Rep. Marty Flynn of Luzerne and Rep. Ryan Bizzarro of Erie were heading home from dinner at around 11 p.m. when a man approached them. The assailant “pointed a gun first at Flynn and then at Bizzarro and demanded their wallets,” The Inquirer reports. A second man was reportedly issuing instructions to the gunman from across the street. According to the state’s Democratic Caucus, Flynn, a former corrections officer, pulled out his own weapon and “exchanged...

    Democratic Sen. Kevin de León was sworn in as the first Latino to head the California Senate in more than a century with an expensive and out-of-the-ordinary soirée Wednesday night in downtown Los Angeles. The event at Walt Disney Concert Hall with an estimated price tag of $50,000 resembled a presidential inaugural more than the low-key affairs at the state Capitol held by past senate leaders. […] The California Latino Legislative Caucus Foundation, which receives donations from special interests seeking influence in the Legislature, picked up the tab for the event and organizers emphasized no taxpayer money was involved. …
