msnbc, September 13, 2010: Representative Mark Schauer of Michigan does not dwell on the legislation he has voted for during his first term in Congress, which includes the Democratic stimulus plan and health insurance overhaul. But he reminds his constituents what he has fought against, declaring,I must ask myself 10 times a day, what is Washington thinking?Representative Glenn Nye of Virginia does not mention in his television advertisements that he is a Democrat. But he expresses a deep worry about the national debt, saying,I stood up to my party leaders and voted no.” Representative Suzanne M. Kosmas of Florida looks straight into the camera during her latest commercial and declares,People in this district are mad, and I’m mad, too.” The advertisements from these three vulnerable Democrats offer a window into the party’s strategy to try to keep control of the House in November at a moment when Republicans and their allies are substantially outspending Democrats and their backers. Two years after arriving in Washington on a message of hope and change, Democratic candidates are not extolling their party’s accomplishments, but rather distancing themselves from their party’s agenda - In ads, Democrats shy away from own party

Washington Examiner, September 15, 2010: Democrats were able to take their share of the news cycle not merely by nominating scandal-plagued Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., to run for reelection, but by picking perhaps the absolute most appropriate image they could in this political climate: a target. Looks like the Democrats just gave themselves a “D.” Which some may feel is generous - Democrats unveil new logo: It’s a target

Los Angeles Times, September 16, 2010: A Los Angeles County grand jury on Thursday unsealed an eight-count felony indictment against state Sen. Roderick Wright (D- Inglewood), accusing him of filing a false declaration of candidacy, voter fraud and perjury. The indictment also alleges that Wright fraudulently voted in five elections in 2008 and 2009. If convicted, he faces up to eight years and four months in state prison. A felony conviction would bar Wright from holding elective office for life - State Sen. Roderick Wright indicted on charges of voter fraud and perjury

NewsBusters, September 21, 2010: Today, eight city council members were arrested in Bell, California for what Los Angeles County District Attorney labeled "corruption on steroids." Thus far, every major news outlet that has reported on the story has omitted the fact that all eight individuals arrested are Democrats - Eight Dems Arrested

The Philadelphia Inquirer, September 28, 2010: Former New Jersey Sen. Wayne Bryant, who is serving a four-year prison sentence for political corruption, was indicted Monday on federal charges in an unrelated case. The US attorney for the Southern District of New York filed an indictment in federal court in Newark charging Bryant and attorney Eric D. Wisler, formerly a managing partner at the politically connected Bergen County law firm now known as DeCotiis, FitzPatrick & Cole, with multiple counts of fraud and bribery. The latest indictment charges that Bryant consistently voted for legislation that helped Wisler's clients. Federal investigators describe a state senator who sponsored legislation and killed legislation based on his own personal financial interest and in direct opposition to the desires of his constituents - Wayne Bryant, imprisoned for N.J. corruption, indicted on unrelated federal fraud charges

San Antonio Express-News, September 30, 2010: Former Bexar County Democratic Party Treasurer Dwayne Eugene Adams was indicted Wednesday on charges that he embezzled and misused about $202,000 of party funds. Adams, 55, could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted of theft between $100,000 and $200,000 and misapplication by a fiduciary between $100,000 and $200,000. Each charge is a second-degree felony. The grand jury action came as little surprise, Democratic Party officials acknowledged. Prosecutors with the white-collar crimes division of the Bexar County district attorney's office had interviewed more than 20 people — including former party chair Carla Vela and numerous deputy chairs — since the San Antonio Police Department handed the case over in July. “I think it does hurt (party morale). I don't know to what extent yet,” County Judge Nelson Wolff said Wednesday of the allegations. “We'll see what happens (in November), but it certainly isn't good for the party, that's for sure” - Democrats' ex-treasurer indicted

Watersheds of Anger This Election Year

Innlegg Panther 29 Okt 2010, 18:59

http://www.capitalismmagazine.com/markets/6121-Watersheds-Anger-This-Election-Year.html

29 October 2010 Edward Cline

When Obama took office, he and the Democrats behaved like some street gang taking over a neighborhood. What most of the electorate is responding to is the naked face of collectivism in action.
Bilde


The Washington Post, awakening from its self-induced stupor and going against its inbred bias, featured a story today headlined, “Across the country, anger, frustration and fear among voters as election nears.” The headline is the best thing about the article, which is a consensus-driven mishmash of opinions, giving equal time and space to those who do not think Obama and Congress have done enough to bankrupt the country or bring it to heel, and to those who do not think at all.


The anger and frustration, however, are owned by the electorate; the fear, by the incumbent Democrats. Their reign of terror is nearly over.

When Obama took office, he and the Democrats behaved like some street gang taking over a neighborhood. Their unspoken motto was: “This ain’t your Founding Fathers’ country anymore.”
From that swaggering hubris of thugs and “community organizers” awarded a sanction to loot the country at will and virtually without opposition, they are experiencing the humility of fear and loathing. These last few months have served as a reality check for Obama and the Democrats.

And that is nothing compared to what the Republicans will experience if they do not repeal ALL the socialist/fascist legislation the Democrats rammed down the throats of captive Americans no longer captivated by Obama or government spending and arrogance. The GOP will feel the sting of frustration and disappointment if they merely “amend” the destructive legislation passed by their colleagues across the aisles of the House and Senate.

One lesson the Democrats and closet socialists and fascists in and out of government will not learn is that this election will serve as an unqualified rejection and repudiation of Washington-style collectivism. The Washington Post and The New York Times will always endorse the expansion of government powers, because their City on the Hill is a national Sunnybrook Farm. They will wait in the wings for the chance, provided very likely by the Republicans, to re-impose their legislative servitude. They will not relinquish the idea that servitude and looting will somehow lead to prosperity and an improved “general welfare.” That is because prosperity and security and happiness are not their fundamental goals or motives: it is destruction for the sake of destruction. That is a serious, morally damning charge to make, but it is the only one that explains the administration’s and the Democrats’ otherwise inexplicable obtuseness and indifference to the electorate.

Washington Examiner, January 11, 2011: Ex-Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa., pens an op-ed in the New York Times today about the proper political response to this weekend's tragedy. I wholeheartedly support the former Congressman (Kanjorski lost his seat in November) when he argues that, following this weekend's shooting, Congressman need to remain open and accessible to the public. However, Kanjorski is rather hypocritical when he climbs up on his soapbox - Dem Congressman who called for GOP Gov. to be put against a wall and shot now pleads for civility

The Cost of Compromise

18 August 2011 Derron Matthews

Americans need to realize that Obama and the left are the poison.


If this latest "debt deal" was anything, it was certainly everything a "compromise" had to offer. While the original cut, cap, and balance plan was at least a step in the right direction, the underlying principles motivating the bill were unfathomable to Harry Reid and President Obama. The debate on the nation's fiscal policy was necessary but it wasn't healthy or productive. The finalized agreement is absent of principles or a plan to get America off its death bed status. Markets are just beginning to realize the implications of this "compromise."

Detroit News, December 7, 2011: A former chairman of the Oakland County Democratic Party was sentenced to one-year probation, 180 hours of community service and $1,965 in fines Wednesday for his role in a fake Tea Party during the 2010 election. Michael McGuinness, 27, of Waterford Township entered a no contest plea to fraudulently entering the names of three people as candidates for a group calling itself the Tea Party for county commission or state senate seats on the November 2010 ballot. "My sentence will pale in comparison to what you have done to yourself," scolded Oakland Circuit Judge James M. Alexander. "…You were on the fast track for political office. … It was all there for you, and you threw it all away" - Ex-chief of Oakland County Democratic Party gets probation for fake tea party scheme

Carl Kruger pleaded guilty to corruption charges Tuesday, admitting he accepted bribes in exchange for political favors.
