NASA's Exploding Rocket a Metaphor for Obama Presidency.

This election may see Obama's presidency go up in smoke!

To that long list of Obama disasters and screw ups we can add this image of NASA's Antares rocket exploding seconds after take off Tuesday night:

A bad sign for Obama and Democrat's future?


Granted, Obama isn't personally responsible for the rocket's failure, but along with the explosion of ISIS, the debacle of the ObamaCare web site, the Veterans Administration scandal, Secret Service bungling, and Ebola missteps it's clear that Obama can't seem to get anything done right. Not even a rocket!

Dems Resort to Racist Appeals for Black Vote While Some Blacks Realize Dems Don't Deserve Their Support

"The biggest threat to the future of our children and grandchildren is the poison of identity politics that preaches that our differences are far more important than our common humanity." Bill Clinton, October 26, 2014

Blacks who want a future begin to look towards GOP solutions!

We know Democrats will say anything to get elected but this is a new low. In North Carolina, the following flyer showing the body of a dead black man after being lynched was plastered on the windshields of cars at a black church during Sunday services:


In Georgia, the state Democrat Party used pictures of black children carrying signs in Ferguson, Missouri protesting the shooting of Michael Brown:


And as if that wasn't enough Democrats in Maryland used a montage of racially charged images in their handout:


Imagine for a moment the national outrage if a Republican put out a flyer with a racial appeal to white voters. But when Democrats do these things to scare up (literally) turn out among black voters there's hardly a peep.

Not all Blacks are falling for the scam!

You look around at the black community today with the lack of jobs, violence, crime and disintegration of the family all happening after trillions spent on federal programs and elected black officials running many big cities like Detroit into the ground and you have to wonder when blacks are going to wake up and realize Democrats are not their friends.

Some of them clearly have reached that conclusion. These community activists (not organizers) in Chicago have figured it out. Take a listen:

MCKINLEY: (music/outdoor noise) Black folks is in a abusive black-leadership relationship.

CARTER: We have to send a message; this is the time for us to send a message.

WATKINS: We're always talking about what the Republicans ain't done for us, or what they will do to hurt us. My life has been hurt by Democrats.

WARD: And we got in our mind that we always got to keep voting Democrat. You know?

MCKINLEY: Look and see in your community. Who are the real oppressors in our community? They always talk about black-on-black crime, and when you hear the words "black-on-black crime" the first thing you think of is a black man robbing you or a black man breaking in your house, and that is a black-on-black crime. But let's take it one step further. There's a black-on-black crime in down in City Hall. There's a black-on-black crime down in all the state capitals in America where black folks are voting against our interests, where black folks are voting and making us poorer. We're getting poorer and poorer, and other groups are getting richer and richer!

WARD: Everywhere you go there's poverty in black areas.

WATKINS: This lot where I stand at right now ought to be housing, public housing for people to live in. Most of the people are homeless, living in the street, and it's because of you, Mr. President.

MCKINLEY: (music/outdoor noise) In Detroit, where your leaders at? There's no white folks running Detroit, cutting water on black folks in Detroit! Them black folks running that city! There ain't no white folks doing that. Them black folks going along with that. Everything that's happing in our community (siren) is black leadership doing this.

WATKINS: Our children know that if the Democrats have not done anything for us as of yet, why should they even go out and vote? What agenda's on the table that's going to change their lives?

MCKINLEY: The only thing they're offering the black community is abortion on demand. This is what the president is asking us to vote for.

CARTER: Now he wants to have this conversation about a minimum wage raise because he knows this is the way to get a lot of the poor people's attention. But to hell with his minimum wage raise! We don't have any jobs. A minimum wage raise for what?

MCKINLEY: They're not pushing a black agenda. They're not pushing a family agenda. They're pushing a neo-liberal agenda.

CARTER: Across this city in these major Democratic cities, this is what it looks like.

WARD: (music/outdoor noise) How can the same process happen over and over again and nobody can do nothing about it?

MCKINLEY: Black leadership is abusing us. The Democratic Party is abusing us.

WARD: Its the same way in every black community across the country.

CARTER: And they force us into a life of welfare. We don't want no welfare! We want opportunities to go to work. We want opportunities to own businesses. They bailed out all of the major banks and these big investors, but left the people starving.

MCKINLEY: There are no Tea Parties in your city. We don't have those people.

CARTER: We have a major Democratic machine -- and the majority of them, they look like me! These are the people who make sure we get nothing, but then turn around and have us vote for them again.

WARD: They only come around when its time for elections, when they think they can give you a toy or give you a turkey or something and everything is good.

CARTER: (music/outdoor noise) Hundreds of millions of dollars are coming down from the federal government, but the money is going to all these special interest groups. My Brother's Keeper went to [Obama's] friends, this whole corrupt Democratic system that gobbles up all the dollars and starves the people out. Can you all look around your community and see any changes that have come about with these hundreds of billions of dollars that have come through our cities? No you cannot. What we do see is our elected officials riding around in new cars and they have new homes.

MCKINLEY: When our people don't have jobs in our communities, when we don't have any vital resources -- when all the deals have been cut and all our people are left out -- this is where we end up.

WARD: And we got the most important thing that we got. We can stop all this. Everybody's gotta vote, and if you use your vote wisely, you can stop a lot of this stuff.
To paraphrase, it isn't the Tea Party or the Republican Party that is keeping black folks down. It's Democrats who enrich themselves and their friends at the expense of the black middle and lower classes.

I hope these guys keep an eye on their backs. You can't diss the Dem machine, particularly in a place like Chicago and get away with it. Bad things have a habit of happening to people who get out of line. The Democrat plantation masters will lynch anyone who dares to speak the truth!


UPDATE: Dems threaten to tell your neighbors if blacks don't vote!

This is disturbing. A letter from the North Carolina Democrat Party sent primarily to black voters:
The voter survey letter says "public records will tell the community at-large whether you vote or not. As a service, our organization monitors turnout in your community, and it would be an understatement to say that we are disappointed by the inconsistent voting of many of your neighbors." 
...
"If you do not vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not," the letter says.
Looks like Dems are getting ready to blame blacks for expected losses on Tuesday!

Wash. Post: Study Says Tens of Thousands of Illegal Votes are Cast by Non-Citizens

Add to that voting by felons and vote fraud and elections are being stolen!

This is stunning. From the Washington Post:
Could non-citizens decide the November election?
...
How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.
Of course Democrats are doing everything they can to block Voter ID laws and attempts by some states to purge voter roles of ineligible voters. You can bet that if these illegal voters were pulling the lever for Republicans their position would be reversed!

Major News Networks Cover Up for Obama and Dems AGAIN!

When Bush was in trouble they never stopped telling us. When it's Obama, they hardly mention a word!

A big election is coming. It may change the way Washington works and will certainly exercise a profound influence on politics during the next two years. But somehow, the Big Three news networks don't think it's newsworthy. When Bush was in trouble in 2006 it was quite another matter. This chart says it all:


Full story at Washington Examiner.

You wonder why the average man in the street doesn't know what's going on? This might be the answer!

GOP Has a Narrow Edge in Bid to Retake the Senate

However, polling analysis combined with strength of Democrats ground game tamps down prediction for larger win!

Here's the Wednesday, October 22 Real Clear Politics (RCP) Senate election map:


Note that 9 seats are rated as "tossups" with polling averages within the margin of error. First, a note about polling averages. RCP takes all recent polls for a particular race and averages them together. It's like comparing apples and oranges since each poll uses a different method but it does give a good overview of a race. A better indicator might be a poll taken at several points during the campaign showing a trend towards or against a particular candidate provided that poll's methodology is accurate. But for the purposes of our discussion here we will use the RCP averages.

For Republicans to take control of the U.S. Senate they need at least five of the tossup seats. Three of those, KY,KS,GA are already in Republicans hands but still too close to call. Let's review all the tossups with the polling averages for the GOP candidate. Click each link for the latest polling for that race:

AK:Sullivan 4.4
CO: Gardner 4.4 Dem machine and vote fraud w/ mail in ballots makes this race problematic.
GA Perdue -0.2 trending towards the Democrat Nunn.
IA Ernst 2.5
KS Roberts TIE. No polls from the last ten days.
KY McConnell 4.4
LA Cassidy 4.8
NH Brown -2.6
NC Tillis -2

In both Georgia and Louisiana a runoff is required between the top two vote getters if no candidate reaches above 50%. It's likely that this will happen.

Voting analyst Sean Trende calculates that candidates with a positive polling number two weeks prior to an election have a better than even chance to win. For the most part I would agree. But Trende's analysis fails to take into account the Democrat vote machine operating in some of these states. Over the years I have repeatedly warned about the efficacy of the Dems voter turnout machine and this year is no different.  Highlighting the problem is this October 19 National Journal report from Iowa:
BALLOT CHASING

On a recent Wednesday, more than two dozen Democratic activists in Des Moines were dialing for Braley alongside Wadden. There weren't enough tables and chairs in the field office, so some of the younger volunteers sat cross-legged on the floor, phones pressed to their ears. In a quieter corner, two legally blind volunteers were making calls together; their service dog, Amber, milled about the office.

Democrats have 35 of these field offices across the state; Republicans have only 13 (not counting local organizations).

Iowa is one of the first states to begin voting, back in late September. Its election rules also allow for so-called ballot chasing—party officials or volunteers physically gathering ballots from voters to turn them in. It's a setup that benefits the best-organized campaigns.

Both parties have tussled who has a superior early-vote operation this year. Democrats boast that they are mobilizing people who would otherwise not have voted, pointing to unusually high numbers of voters who didn't cast a ballot in the last midterm. "We are literally expanding the electorate," brags Christina Freundlich, communications director for the Iowa Democratic Party.

Of the Republicans, Braley says, "If you just are targeting voters, to get them to vote early, who would have voted on Election Day, that's not how you're going to win this race."

National Democratic operatives say that Iowa is one of the states where the much-ballyhooed $60 million get-out-the-vote operation dubbed the "Bannock Street Project" will make the most difference. (Colorado is another.)

The fact that the Iowa race is within the margin of error in most polls heightens the importance of field operations.

Both sides acknowledge that Republicans were late to the ground game in Iowa, by not recognizing in previous cycles the importance of securing votes ahead of Election Day. "They are at the point now of realizing that early vote is the way to go. We're just a few cycles ahead of them on that," Freundlich says. "Every day is an election day. Election Day is just the last day to vote."
Boots on the ground means votes and for some reason the GOP still refuses to learn the lessons of 2006, 2008 and 2012. Even in 2010 the GOP lost several close races where the candidate was ahead. Harry Reid would no longer be majority leader if the GOP had equaled the Dems organizing effort in Nevada.

My own view is that any state where the GOP candidate is less than 4 points ahead of the Dem candidate there is reason for worry. Less than 2 points in states where the Dem machine is particularly strong and the GOP candidate may be in trouble. Taking all that into consideration I have utilized RCP's "create your own map" feature for Senate elections (and invite you to do the same) and came up with this likely scenario:


The shaky bets for my map are GA and KS. However, it's possible that if a larger wave favoring the GOP develops the GOP will secure CO and NC. Winning NH would be icing on the cake!

The bottom line is that the GOP is likely to retake control of the U.S. Senate. What's left to be determined is by how much and how many seats we might have won if we matched the Democrats ground game!

Obama Tells Dems Up for Election It's OK to Lie

OBAMA: "Do what you need to do to win.!"

In Wednesday's editorial the New York Times says Democrats in close Senate elections are "in a panic" and doing everything they can to deny links to Obama's failing policies. That includes refusing to admit they voted for Obama and among incumbents, trying to walk away from their strong support for Obama over the past few years.

When Obama was asked if this denial hurts him he said he understands:
OBAMA: "“The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me; they have supported my agenda in Congress. So this isn’t about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me…I tell them…you do what you need to do to win."
I wonder if that "do what you need to do to win" is the reason vote fraud in Colorado is being encouraged by Democrat groups?

We have to thank Obama for his frankness. It is true that a vote for any of these Democrats up for election is a vote for Obama. Voters should not be fooled into thinking otherwise!

New Information on Michael Brown Autopsy Confirms Police Officer Wilson's Report

Brown attempted to take Wilson's gun and was not surrendering with his hands up. Also, had recent pot intake in his system!

Earlier I posted on forensic and Officer Wilson's reports which showed Brown was the aggressor in the Ferguson shooting. Now this:
The Post-Dispatch also had three experts examine the official autopsy.
St. Louis medical examiner Dr. Michael Graham says the report supports claims that there was a “significant struggle” in Wilson’s patrol car, and Brown suffered a hand wound at “relatively short range.”

A forensic pathologist from San Francisco, Dr. Judy Melinek, says based on a bullet wound to Brown’s arm, Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson in the standard surrender position – with hands up and palms out – when he was shot, and Brown was falling forward or lunging when he was hit by the fatal shot to the top of his head.

Based on toxicology tests, Ohio State University College of Pharmacy consultant Alfred Staubus concludes Brown had used marijuana within a few hours of his death, but it is not clear if he was impaired at the time.
I'd like to know why it took so long to get this information to the public. I never believed that Officer Wilson killed Michael Brown "execution style" as many in Ferguson's black community insist. But then, people who are of that view are unlikely to be swayed by the evidence or objective experts. They continue to threaten "the wrath of God's vengeance" if Wilson isn't tried for murder and convicted.

The real injustice here is the lynching of Officer Wilson!

Caption This: Obama in a Hazmat Suit

Have a little fun with the beleaguered, incompetent President!

Got the following image from a great column by Michael Goodwin in the New York Post titled "A Toxic President." Goodwin opens by saying:
Chalk it up to karma, fate or bad luck. Whatever you call it, the Ebola scare is proof that Bad Things Happen to Bad Presidents.
...
In this case, X stands for trust.
President Obama has spent six years squandering it, and the administration’s confusion, contradictions and mistakes on Ebola fit the pattern. This is how he rolls.
 

My suggested caption: "Will this protect me from my own incompetence."

I'm wondering if someone won't come up with an image showing Dem candidates for Senate wearing Hazmat suits before going anywhere near Obama.

One more thing, Hillary's flying monkeys are back just in time for Halloween!


Get your tee shirt here.

UPDATE: People walk out on Obama as he speaks during campaign stop in Maryland. They must have worried about catching Obola. He's toxic!

Women voters abandoning Obama. Tina Brown concludes Obama makes women "feel unsafe." So much for the GOP war on women!

Here's a Shock: ObamaCare Discourages People from Getting Required and Routine Care

They have insurance but they can't afford to use it!

From the NY Times:
Unable to Meet the Deductible or the Doctor

Patricia Wanderlich got insurance through the Affordable Care Act this year, and with good reason: She suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2011, spending weeks in a hospital intensive care unit, and has a second, smaller aneurysm that needs monitoring.

But her new plan has a $6,000 annual deductible, meaning that Ms. Wanderlich, who works part time at a landscaping company outside Chicago, has to pay for most of her medical services up to that amount. She is skipping this year’s brain scan and hoping for the best.

“To spend thousands of dollars just making sure it hasn’t grown?” said Ms. Wanderlich, 61. “I don’t have that money.”

About 7.3 million Americans are enrolled in private coverage through the Affordable Care Act marketplaces, and more than 80 percent qualified for federal subsidies to help with the cost of their monthly premiums. But many are still on the hook for deductibles that can top $5,000 for individuals and $10,000 for families — the trade-off, insurers say, for keeping premiums for the marketplace plans relatively low. The result is that some people — no firm data exists on how many — say they hesitate to use their new insurance because of the high out-of-pocket costs.
Thanks Obama!

First Job of Obama's Ebola "Czar" is to Protect Obama, NOT the American People

Selection of a long time Democrat political operative reveals Obama's real purpose in appointment!

After an initial fumbling response President Bush sought to calm hysterics after the Katrina disaster by sending in General Russel Honore, who famously told reporters "don't get stuck on stupid." Honore's leadership went a great way to resolve the tense situation.

So, one would think that with increasing fears of an Ebola crisis Obama might select someone outside his own circle who had the leadership skills and the GRAVITAS to calm fears and instill confidence that the nation's public health system can address the crisis. If you thought that, you would be wrong.

Obama appointed a Democrat insider, V.P. Joe Biden's former Chief of Staff and long time Democrat political operative Ron Klain. It's as if Obama must think all the insider advice he gets from the "faculty lounge" White House staff has been successful despite evidence that's clear for all to see. Appointing a political person is also a sign that Obama sees this problem not in terms of public health but with the same short term political considerations that have proved to be such a disaster in both foreign and domestic policy.

White House defenders point to Klain's role in managing the nearly $1 Trillion Stimulus bill as if money doled out to Obama cronies like Solyndra and others, which failed to generate jobs for Americans, is something to brag about.

Here's Charles Krauthamer's take:
It's a PR move from beginning to end. It gives the appearance and motion, this is what Obama specializes in. You have a VA scandal, an IRS scandal, a Secret Service scandal, you fire a guy at the top so you have the appearance of motion. Here you're putting a guy in who is supposedly going to coordinate.

There's a quote in the New York Times about what [Ron] Klain would do, he said his job is messaging, so we have a virus on the loose that turns your organs into liquid and the answer is to appoint a guy to do the messaging. This is like Obama saying, "Oh, yes, all hell is breaking loose all over the world, but this is because of social media, Twitter, and Facebook all of us are more aware of it."
Putting politics over policy is always a bad decision. In the case of Ebola, it could have deadly consequences!

Finally, Facts in the Other Side of Ferguson, MO. Shooting Case Come Out

Sadly, too many have already made up their minds that the cop is at fault for shooting Michael Brown!

We all know the story that the racebaiters want you to believe. Now, the other side of the story is coming out, MONTHS LATE. A report from the New York Times:
The police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., two months ago has told investigators that he was pinned in his vehicle and in fear for his life as he struggled over his gun with Mr. Brown, according to government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the matter.

The officer, Darren Wilson, has told the authorities that during the scuffle, Mr. Brown reached for the gun. It was fired twice in the car, according to forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first bullet struck Mr. Brown in the arm; the second bullet missed.

The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.
...
The officials briefed on the case said the forensic evidence gathered in the car lent credence to Officer Wilson’s version of events. According to his account, he was trying to leave his vehicle when Mr. Brown pushed him back in. Once inside the S.U.V., the two began to fight, Officer Wilson told investigators, and he removed his gun from the holster on his right hip.
The Times also recounts press statements by Michael Brown's friend Dorian Johnson who claimed that Officer Wilson "just reached his arm out the window and grabbed my friend around his neck, and he was trying to choke my friend." Since Brown was 6'4" and 290 lbs. the notion that Wilson grabbed Brown by the neck through the window was never credible.

Still, none of this matters to the racebaiting crowd who WANT to believe that an injustice was committed in Ferguson on that night in August. If the truth of what really happened is widely accepted then the rioters and racebaiters will be the ones with blood on their hands!
