    Associated Press ^ | Dec 23, 2016 10:04 AM EST | Josef Federman
    An Israeli official is accusing President Barack Obama of a “shameful move against Israel at the U.N.” after learning the White House did not intend to veto a Security Council resolution condemning settlement construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. The official said the “U.S. Administration secretly cooked up with the Palestinians an extreme anti-Israeli resolution behind Israel's back.” …

    The Daily Beast ^ | 7 Oct 2016 | Bob Kerrey
    Few if any candidates for federal office will tell you that as a consequence of current federal law, young Americans are being screwed in two life-changing ways. First, under current law, every Social Security beneficiary under the age of 48 will have their promised benefits cut by a third. And second, every young person who works is contributing between $10,000 and $20,000 to the health care and retirement of those lucky Americans who are already drawing benefits under federal law. In some ways the second screwing is worse than the first. Young workers do not have the defined benefit retirement...

    The Omaha World Herald(Buffet's RAG) ^ | November 1, 2012 | By Robynn Tysver
    Is it a game changer? It depends on who is talking, but clearly the decision by former Nebraska Republican U.S. Sen. Chuck Hagel to endorse Bob Kerrey is a coup for the Democrat. Hagel is expected to cross party lines today and back Kerrey in his U.S. Senate race against Republican State Sen. Deb Fischer. Hagel and Kerrey served together in the Senate. Perhaps more important, both are Vietnam War veterans who developed a strong friendship. Hagel is expected to make the announcement in Omaha, according to a spokesman for the Kerrey campaign.

    In the past few days, questions have been swirling on Bob Kerrey's (Dem NE Senate Candidate) claims that he's only 3 pts behind his opponent, State Senator Deb Fischer (Rep). His pollster, Pharos has been cited for numerous "red flags". ================================================= (snip) Pharos claims to have conducted five polls this month alone, all of them showing the race increasingly tight. While Republican Deb Fischer’s U.S. Senate campaign has disputed this, Pharos’ results were close to that of the Omaha World-Herald’s recent poll calling it a 3-point race. The Daily Kos saw red flags, such as Pharos reporting results to the...

    LINCOLN, NE - Bob Kerrey sure has a lot to say about grazing land these days, but history (and the New York Times) tells us Mr. Kerrey is far more interested in cattle. During his previous term in the US Senate, Bob Kerrey continued to buy and sell cattle futures contracts for six months after taking a seat on the Senate Agriculture Committee. Some called this a clear conflict of interest. Some called his behavior ethically questionable. Others called it a case of Kerrey "playing fast and loose" with the rules. Today, we call it insider trading. And if character...

    Deb Fischer continues to hold a commanding lead in the race for U.S. Senate. Our Tuesday through Thursday track showed Fischer ahead of Bob Kerrey by a 16-point margin (55% Fischer–39% Kerrey). She also has a solid edge among committed voters. 46% of likely voters say they are definitely voting for Fischer compared to 32% definitely voting for Kerrey.

    Ranchers and farmers in Nebraska aren't responding too kindly to Democrat Bob Kerrey's lastest smear tactics against Republican Deb Fischer. With the campaign in the final stretch, Fischer still enjoys a double-digit lead while Kerrey throws mud with the hope that something sticks. The Nebraska Farm Bureau reports on Kerrey's latest smear and that of local ranchers and farmers coming to Fischer's defense.

    An internal poll released by the campaign of former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D) showed him within 5 points of Republican nominee Deb Fischer for the open Nebraska Senate seat. (snip) The Fischer campaign cast doubt on the poll, which interviewed 600 likely voters over the phone between Oct. 14-16 and included calls to land lines and cellphones. The campaign cited a Politico story that ran at the beginning of the month about Kerrey pollster Harrison Hickman, who is said to have admitted under oath that he issued polls in the waning days of John Edwards’ 2008 presidential primary bid to...

    The political fortunes of Democrats Bob Kerrey and President Barack Obama appear to be tied together in Nebraska — and that's bad news for Kerrey and his comeback bid for U.S. Senate, according to The World-Herald Poll. Kerrey and Obama each trailed his respective Republican opponent by about 10 percentage points in a statewide poll of 800 registered voters. The margin was even worse for Kerrey when the poll was narrowed to likely voters, with the former governor and two-term senator trailing Republican State Sen. Deb Fischer by 16 percentage points — 56 percent to 40 percent.

    They are also calling WI a safe pickup for Wisconsin. There hasn't been a serious outside poll from the usual suspects (RAS, PPP, WSJ, Gallup, etc.) in quite some time. That's a big red flag as they don't think it's a contested race....why waste the time/money? Big money is slowly filtering out. Another red flag. No new "manufactured dirt", just the same old memes from the Kerrey camp....and it's not sticking. Kerrey is settling into a "bunker" mentality. No real buzz or energy. His heart just isn't into it. GOP base is far more jazzed up, organized and hitting the...
