    This image on an anti-Mark Miloscia website has since been taken down. Seattle, Wash., Oct 31, 2014 / 01:18 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Mark Miloscia, a candidate for Washington's state senate, has been attacked for his Catholic faith and adherence to Church teaching on a website belittling his faith as incompatible with representing his district. “'Mississippi Mark' has always worn his church on his sleeve. Rather than represent the people of Federal Way, he has best represented the people of The Vatican,” read an image which was posted on markmiloscia.info, a website erected by critics of Miloscia, the Republican senate candidate...

    "Michigan is about as far away from the conservative LA art activism scene as possible, but anonymous pranksters in Lansing decided to make their voice heard with posters critical of Democrat Senate candidate Gary Peters. -By Editor" My comment: Lansing has never seen the kind of conservative LA art activism that brought us the famous "Ted Cruz with Tattoos" poster seen last year. (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/03/14/Ted-Cruz-Posters-Appear-in-Beverly-Hills) It's very exciting to see that conservatives are beginning to understand that art is very important in communicating, and are willing to stick their necks out for principles.

    Young Republicans of Galveston County, Texas are apologizing for an event they held over the weekend. They admit that throwing darts at pictures of Democrats went too far. Politics have become divisive, ugly, and many would agree downright nasty over recent years. But some say what happened in League City at a polling place this weekend crossed a line. League City voter Edward Cantu was at the North Galveston County Annex Building Saturday when he noticed a dart throwing contest in the parking lot. The Young Republicans of Galveston County were letting people throw darts at pictures of President Obama,...

    Things must be going even worse for the Democrats than the polls suggest. The campaign of incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., for example, has hit rock bottom. How else to explain her lame attempt to blame her electoral peril on racism and sexism? Modern illiberals are incapable of thinking their record or their ideas could lead to misfortune.

Whenever a Democrat says something nuts like this they never cite anyone. Apparently were supposed to nod in knowing approval while fearfully voting Democrat. A desperate Sen. Mary Landrieu is blaming southern racism and sexism for her and Obamas poor poll numbers. Blaming sexism is comical, Landrieu was elected to the Senate twice. Blaming racism is simply absurd. The problem for Democrats in the south isnt that Obama is black, its that hes a Democrat. Considering that the Republican Governor...

But the Establishment informs us impeachment is a dead letter. Without impeachment, then what? Bill after bill may be passed. Obama will veto most if not all. How can we believe more legislation will relieve us from the misery born of prior legislationthat more Congressional activity will relieve us from the disastrous effects of prior Congressional activity?

    Republican Gov. Scott Walker leads Democratic challenger Mary Burke 50% to 43% among likely voters in the latest survey by the Marquette University Law School. That represents a change from other Wisconsin surveys in recent weeks including a Marquette poll two weeks ago that showed the race essentially tied. The Marquette results released Wednesday underscore just how much turnout matters to the outcome of the contest for governor. Walker's gains were not among the broader population of registered voters, but among those who said they were certain to vote Tuesday. That's the group defined as "likely voters" in...

So much for "hope" and "change". Regardless of what the NAACP, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson tell their brethren, the Democratic party is driven by a selfish desire to blackmail blacks with the threat of losing their welfare, social entitlements, instead of empowering their constituents to find a better...

As Joel Fox of Fox & Hounds Daily notes, Brown is trouncing Kashkari by 16 points overall, but his lead among Independents is only 44% to 40%. That 4% difference is within the polls margin of error. Even more remarkably, among white voters, Kashkari actually leads Brown by one percentage point. California has the most Latino residents of any state, over 14 million. Browns...

    Tom Steyers dark money special interest group, NextGen Climate, knows Democrats cant win this election on the issues this yearespecially not on Steyers radical anti-energy agenda. So they have a new plan: suppress the Republican vote. In a September memo to their state teams, NextGen lays out a plan to degrade Republican performance by dampening Republican enthusiasm levels. By spreading misinformation about Republican candidates, theyre hoping to divide our party in a last-ditch attempt to save theirs. Its their last hope to force their far-left agenda on America.

    Only a madman would gamble with our livesour childrens livesand the entire American economy. Why would President Obama play Russian Roulette with the future of our country? Its a gamble no sane leader would take. The life and death issue is Ebola. The President is more concerned with political correctness (and golf) than taking common sense precautions to prevent a deadly pandemic. Why does this President not see his responsibility is to keep the odds as low as possible? There are three simple, common sense actions any President who cared about American citizens would take:

    The Democratic Party's worst fears about the midterm election look to be coming true. Polling in recent weeks suggests turnout on Election Day could be very low, even by the standards of recent midterms. That’s bad news for Democrats because core groups in the liberal base are more likely to stay home than are people in the demographic segments that lean Republican. A Gallup poll last week found that voters are less engaged in this year's midterms than they were in 2010 and 2006. Only 33 percent of respondents said they were giving at least “some” thought to the upcoming...

    Earlier this week, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker released a new ad in response to an EMILYs List campaign regurgitating the usual War on Women blather. But rather than fighting back with a clear, unapologetic defense of pro-life principles and policies, it tries to defuse the situation with mealy-mouthed equivocation: Hi, Im Scott Walker. Im pro-life. But theres no doubt in my mind the decision of whether or not to end a pregnancy is an agonizing one. Thats why I support legislation to increase safety and to provide more information for a woman considering her options. The bill leaves the final...

    DETROIT, MI - First Lady Michelle Obama told a Detroit audience Friday "we are better off today than when Barack first took office," as she rallied the crowd in support of Michigan Democrats up for election in November. The first lady, stumping for Democrats around the country, cited historic economic growth, higher graduation rates and health care availability as signs the country is headed in the right direction. Democrats are campaigning to retain control of the U.S. Senate in November, though Republicans are mounting a strong challenge to takeover both chambers of Congress. In Michigan, Democrats are trying to hold...

    The race for governor in deep-blue Maryland is much closer than expected, with analysts saying Democrat Anthony Brown is vulnerable because he tiptoed around the big issues and failed to make an argument for his election other than hes next in line. Mr. Brown, the two-term lieutenant governor, leads in polls but not by the double-digit spread he should enjoy in a state where registered Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-to-1. His opponent, Republican businessman Larry Hogan, is suddenly showing momentum as voters give him a second look less than four weeks before the election. If Anthony Brown loses this election, hes...
