Did Harry Reid’s Favorite Billionaire Pay for Colorado “Republicans Will Outlaw Birth Control” Ad?

Tom Steyer, the billionaire climate crony spending some $76,000,000 in an attempt to buy the US Senate (with not a peep from any of the progressives claiming we need to “take big money out of politics”) was probably been the money man behind the NARAL Ad in Colorado that accused Republican Cory Gardner of seeking to outlaw contraception.

Steyer’s NextGen Climate Action Committee reportedly gave $239,000 to a Colorado NARAL affiliate the day before they spent the money on the spots accusing Cory Gardner of wanting to ban birth control.

For those who haven’t heard it, here’s part of the text of the ad.

Woman: So *everyone’s* sold out of condoms? Hmm. How did this happen?

Man: Cory Gardner banned birth control. And now, it’s all on us guys. And you can’t find a condom *anywhere*. And the pill was just the start. Pell grants my little brother was counting on for college? Cory cut them. Climate change that *everyone* knows is weirding our weather, Cory flat-out denies it. Sweet Pea, Cory denies science!

Because the Democrat base of horny, stupid women really believe Republicans want to outlaw contraception… and burn up the environment… and outlaw college educations. Also, Christian Terrorists murder gay people every day. #ThingsStupidPeopleBelieve

Vote Fraud: A Leftist Tradition

Some historical context for the recent incidents of voting machines in Democrat-run Illinois and Maryland switching Republican votes to Democrat.

“As long as I count the votes, what are you going to do about it?”
– William Marcy Tweed, (1823-1878). “Boss Tweed” was head of Tammany Hall, the Democratic Party political machine that looted millions in graft, corruption, and open bribery from New York City in the 19th Century.

“Comrades, I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how. But what is extraordinarily important is this: who will count the votes, and how.”
– Josef Stalin

So far, there are no reports of “calibration errors” switching Democrat votes to Republican.

Why the Obamacrats Are Losing Millennials

Posted by V the K at 7:17 pm - October 29, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections,Ideas & Trends

The Left used to crow that they would own Millennials — the post Generation X wave that came of age in the Era of Hope and Change — because if you vote Democrat in your twenties, you will vote Democrat forever. And a lot of people in their twenties got swept up in the wave of Hope and Change and voted for Bammy.

It never occurred to these left-wing triumphalists that if “Hope and Change” failed, their constituencies might abandon them. But that’s what’s happening (and granted, it never occurred to the Democrats that Hope and Change would fail … because Paul Krugman, Rachel Maddow, and Jon Stewart were all telling them Obama was perfect and awesome and the Best President Forevers and could never fail.)

… slightly more than half (51%) of young Americans who say they will “definitely be voting” in November prefer a Republican-run Congress with 47 percent favoring Democrat control – a significant departure from IOP polling findings before the last midterm elections (Sept. 2010 – 55%: prefer Democrat control; 43%: prefer Republican control). The cohort – 26% of whom report they will “definitely” vote in the midterms – appear up-for-grabs to both political parties and could be a critical swing vote in many races in November….

As the father of three Millennials, let me tell why the Obamacrats are losing them. The ones in my house and their friends all look out and see a world of limited economic prospects and — in some cases — massive college debt that has failed to produce for them the jobs and wealth they felt entitled to. Whether liberal, conservative, or indifferent Millennials have become aware that the earlier generations who run the Government are screwing them; running up debt that they will stick to the Millennials while destroying or limiting the upcoming generations prospects for economic advancement. My older two boys are happy to be employed and debt-free, but they see friends who have five or six figures of college debt and have to work retail jobs. They are also frustrated at how hard it is to move up within their fields of employment and feel blocked by older workers of less ability; they feel like the system is skewed against their entire generation. The promises of ‘Hope and Change’ ring pretty hollow now; they figured out it was just a meaningless advertising slogan and feel duped (not my sons, but others)

Another millennial of close acquaintance was thrilled that Obamacare meant he could stay on his parent’s insurance until he turned 26. That’s when he was 21. Now that he’s 25, Obamacare is starting to not look like such a great deal.

Gay Marriage Makes Some Strange Bedfellows

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) is endorsing far left Democrat Scott Peters over gay center-left Republican Carl deMaio, because Gay Marriage.

NOM, the Family Research Council (FRC) and CITIZENLink had released a letter that put Republican leadership on notice of their “active opposition” to DeMaio, as well as two other candidates up for election in 2014. However, the first letter stopped short of supporting Peters. The new letter echoes calls from some local Tea Party and conservative leaders to support Peters.

If this were, as NOM is portraying it, a stand on principle, then simply withholding support from deMaio would make sense. Actively supporting his opponent – a left-wing Democrat whose positions are very far out of NOM’s swim lane – is not a stand on principle.

My guess is the tactical reasoning behind this is to warn other Republicans not to jump on the gay marriage bandwagon. NOM can’t accept that – much as it may suck, the battle to preserve traditional marriage is lost. Traditional marriage has been slipping away since 1969 when Ronald Reagan signed California’s “No Fault” divorce law and began the transformation of marriage from a committed Covenant to a non-binding legal contract to stay together for a while and get some bennies. Gay marriage is one of the last nails in that coffin, but it is not the coffin traditional marriage is being buried in. That casket was built by heterosexuals over a period of decades.

On a related note, a court in the state of New York legalized Uncle-Niece/Aunt-Nephew/Uncle-Nephew/Aunt-Niece incest this week; apparently because Uncle-Niece arrangements are common among immigrants, and we are obligated to respect other cultures more than they are obligated to respect our laws.

A Curious Thing

Voting Machines have been mysteriously turning Republican votes into Democrat votes. There’s something peculiar about it:

  • It only seems to be happening in Democrat-controlled areas of deep blue states, such as Cook County IL and Baltimore MD.
  • It’s always Republican votes turning Democrat, never the other way around

Ain’t that odd?

Republicans: “Repeal Obamacare? That’s Whackobird Talk.”

Just in case anyone was laboring under the delusion that a Republican majority in the senate will do anything to divert the country from its headlong drive to the Progressive Socialist Abyss, Republican Senator has a few words for you:

“It would take 60 votes in the Senate, and no one thinks we’re going to have 60 Republicans [after the election] and it would take a presidential signature, no one thinks we’re going to get that,” McConnell said on Fox News.

Exactly as some cynics who have two thumbs and are pointing them at his own chest have said, the Republicans will use the excuse of a veto threat to justify doing nothing. (“Maybe we’ll try just repealing the medical device tax,” McConnell says. Oh, yippee.)

You will get nothing and like it.

Republicans don’t deserve to win. Democrats deserve to lose. That’s where we are in 2014.

Democrats: Our Base Is Stupid, Horny, and Potentially Violent

Posted by V the K at 11:15 am - October 29, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections

Democrats are not running on their record in 2014. It’s not as if they can. Imagine if the entire Democrat campaign was based on the last six years of ‘Achievements.’ “Don’t you just love Obamacare? How about that border situation? And the economy, isn’t it just awesome? We sure did take care of that terrorism thing, didn’t we?”

They are also not running much on what they promise to do next. “With a continuing Democrat majority, we’re going to pass immigration reform and import 30,000,000 people who will work for less than you do. But don’t worry, we’re also going to jack up the minimum wage to $15.00. Anybody not replaced by a machine is gonna be living pretty darn high on that $25K a year they will be bringing home from that part-time job.”

Instead, in the final weeks, Democrats are focusing on engaging their base at a visceral level. And, based on the tactics they are using, a visceral Democrat is a stupid, horny, and potentially violent person.

Your Democrat Party, ladies and gentlemen.

Churches Organize to Turn Out Democrat Vote

Posted by V the K at 9:22 pm - October 28, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections

In advance of the mid-term elections, African-American churches are organizing to turn out the African-American vote for Democrats.

Prominent black denominations and faith leaders like Rev. Cynthia Hale, Dr. Barbara Williams-Skinner and others are calling the final two Sundays before the election “Freedom Sunday” and “Turnout Sunday” and asking congregants to go to the polls, often with a Ferguson-motivated appeal.

Curiously, the “Separation of Church and State” activist crowd has no objection to this.

I wonder if any Democrat mayors will be demanding their sermons.

So, are lefties jerks? Or just narrow-minded?

HotAir pointed out yesterday that “Consistent liberals” are most likely to block others on social media for disagreeing with them politically.

Hence, my question. I’m honestly divided. In this complicated world, we’ve all known some lefties who are plain jerks, while some other lefties may be fairly nice people – apart from their never wanting to hear or know of any information that could make them question their prejudices.

I ran into the second kind of person just the other night, at my dad’s. “Cynthia” is a highly-educated neighbor in his retirement community, very nice in terms of watching out for my dad’s disabled girlfriend, and with a pleasant demeanor. So far, “not a jerk.”

But narrow-minded. As one example, she’ll dismiss (as in, will not hear) any information of Sarah Palin being anything other than a total dummy. Which is funny because the prominent Obama supporter and former “green jobs czar”, Van Jones, has now admitted in essence that the Left lied to people about Palin in the 2008 campaign:

“Sarah Palin .. people forget. She had the Democratic party shaking in our boots in 2008. She came out, she gave that speech at the convention. That was, hands down, one of the best convention speeches – not by a woman, by anybody in 2008. People were running for the hills…

Now it can be told! Now it can be told! We were scared!”

It must help the Democrats that their most officially ‘educated’ supporters are among their most dogmatically-gullible supporters. The Democrats can lie to such people and they won’t even care. For another example, we have President Obama’s recent admission that the Democrat candidates who are staying distant from him this year are engaged in a lie:

Well look, here’s the bottom line. We’ve got a tough map. A lot of the states are contested this time are states that I didn’t win. And so some of the candidates there – it is difficult for them to have me in the state…

The bottom line is though, these are all folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress…These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me, and you know, I tell them, I said, ‘you know what? You do what you need to do to win.’

Dogmatically-gullible people: They enable the Democrats to get away with it. Some of them are jerks, some of them are nice – but narrow-minded.

Texas Democrat Pitches to the LIV’s

Pro-Abortion Fanatic Democrat (but I repeat myself) Wendy Davis, running for governor of Texas, is throwing everything she can at the Democrats’ low-information voter base and hoping something… anything… sticks. First, she accused her Republican opponent … who is confined to a wheelchair… of being hostile to handicapped people. Now, she is accusing her Republican opponent… who is in an interracial marriage, of being secretly opposed to interracial marriage. It’s like the accusation that Mitt Romney wanted to outlaw tampons, put women in binders, and give his dog a gay haircut; the LIV’s will believe anything and fact-check nothing.

Greg Abbott won’t say whether he’d defend an interracial marriage ban—troubling but not surprising from someone who defends a “poll tax.”

The thing that Wendy Davis is twisting to get to that misinformation biscuit is the evasive answer Greg Abbott gave to a gotcha question during an interview with a San Antonio newspaper.

When I said I wasn’t clear if he was saying he would have defended a ban on interracial marriage, he said, “Actually, the reason why you’re uncertain about it is because I didn’t answer the question. And I can’t go back and answer some hypothetical question like that.”

Asked about the similarities some see between the ban on gay marriage and past prohibitions on interracial marriage, Abbott said, “Well, the Supreme Court has disagreed with that” by holding that sexual orientation isn’t due protected-class status in the way that race is.

Bad answer, Greg. Maybe I can say this because I’m not a politician, but equating gay marriage and interracial marriage is an utterly false equivalence. Interracial marriages do not fundamentally alter the concept of marriage the way gay marriage does. Interracial heterosexual marriage maintain the unique and critical role of marriage in Western culture in binding families together, creating secure environments for the raising of children produced by the marriage, and providing fundamental social stability.

Gay marriage – as some of its advocates admit – is about fundamentally redefining marriage, gaining access to social benefits, and assuaging the egos of gays. Children and family are just props to get to the result. Traditional marriage is about what is best for the whole of society, gay marriage is only about what’s best for Teh Gheys.

(Yeah, I know, I’m on the losing side of the argument, just like the people in Salem who said, “I don’t think those girls are actually witches” were on the losing side of the argument.)

Whatever the affirmative case for gay marriage may be, it has nothing to do with civil rights, and is no way equivalent to interracial marriage.

Democrat Senator’s Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Interview

Charlie Crist Strikes Me as a Rather Odd Fellow

Posted by V the K at 10:41 am - October 17, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections

You may recall how in 2010, former Florida Governor Charlie Crist was the choice of the Republican Establishment as the party’s candidate for Senator. He lost the party’s nomination to an upstart conservative named Marco Rubio.  No doubt if Crist had defeated Rubio, conservatives would have been told to shut up and support him because nothing was more important than loyalty to the party. Since Crist didn’t defeat Rubio, he ran against him as an Independent, and after losing, switched over to the Democrats.

Funny how that party loyalty thing only works one-way.

Anyway, Crist is running for Florida governor again, now as a loyal Obama Democrat. That’s not so weird, but he does have this peculiar thing about always needing to have a fan blowing on him when he makes a public appearance, which resulted in some “Only in Florida” weirdness at his gubernatorial “debate” with current Republican governor Rick Scott.

Charlie Crist, burdened with an almost pathological disdain for humanity’s untidiness, hates to sweat. This trait runs deep, and it was laid bare again last night in an utterly bizarre and totally hilarious bit of political theater that would only happen in Florida. Crist, who claimed to have something called “temperature issues” that can only be “addressed” with a fan, had installed a fan at his feet before the debate.

This was not to Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s liking for reasons that have not yet been fully explained. Scott refused to debate under any condition that would be fanned, giving life to what is now known as #fangate.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we have an extremely peculiar situation right now,” the moderator said. ” … We have been told that Gov. Scott will not be participating in this debate. Gov. Crist has asked to have a fan — a small fan — placed underneath his podium. The rules that I was given by the Scott campaign says there should be no fan.” He paused. “Somehow, there is a fan there.”

Eventually, Rick Scott showed up and the debate went on but… pretty weird, right? Though not quite as weird as former Florida Senator Bob Graham who reportedly kept detailed journals recording the time, length, and consistency of his bowel movements.

Democrat Hit Piece FAIL

Posted by V the K at 9:26 am - October 16, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections

A “journalist” working at Deadspin thought he had found his ticket to the Big Time. If you’re a “journalist” and you can add “Destroyed the career of a major Republican politician” to your resume, you’ve pretty much got a meal ticket for the rest of your life. So, anyway, this guy… his name is Dave McKenna… thought he had a great scoop that Republican Cory Gardner, senate candidate in Colorado (who is leading in the polls but not outside the margin of Democrat voter fraud) was lying about his high school football career. And, of course, a lot of other Democrat press operatives ran with the story.

Had Mr. McKenna bothered to ask the Gardner campaign… or even bothered to check one of the yearbooks from Gardner’s old high school, he would have seen that Gardner wasn’t making up anything. The entire hit piece was a lie, but very few of the Democrat press operatives who promoted the story have backed down or apologized.  Lies that serve the party and Obama are “good lies,” don’tcha know.

Watching the Campaigns of Democrats Implode

Posted by V the K at 6:19 pm - October 15, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections

Not much joy in this election year, but at least some of the Democrat campaigns are providing entertainment value.

In Texas, the woman Democrat running for governor who is famous mainly for her fanatical support of abortion, stepped in it pretty badly with an ad that focused on the fact that her Republican opponent is confined to a wheelchair. Democrats can’t seem to figure out why the ad is offensive; maybe they should imagine what would happen if a Republican in 2016 were to open an ad with lingering close-up of Hillary’s cankles. So, anyway, the the woman Democrat running for governor of Texas is now trying to get over her gaffe by staging lots of photo ops with people in wheelchairs. Kind of like if Todd Akin had spent the rest of his campaign visiting rape crisis centers.

In Kentucky, Alison Lumbergh Grimes or whatever her name is, has found herself in a bit of a spot because she refuses to say whether she voted for Obama (when everyone knows she did), or whether she will vote for Harry Reid as Senate majority leader (which everyone knows she will). It’s not so much that being a brain-dead loyal democrat is a bad thing — they love that — but if your goals is to defeat Mitch McConnell, you should probably position yourself as an alternative to a sleazy, oleaginous hack politician, not a replacement for one.

Speaking of oleaginous hack Republicans, Thom Tillis in North Carolina is not getting any traction against Democrat Kay Hagan, even though a story has just come out about her and her husband skimming off the Obama Stimulus. But it’s OK because she’s a Democrat; I mean, it’s not like somebody in her office closed an exit off a bridge or anything.

Also, Democrats are running an ad targeting Africa-American voters and telling them that if Republicans will win, racist white cops will shoot them. Hey, they convinced women that Romney would outlaw tampons, so why not?

UPDATE (from Jeff): HotAir goes with “Alison Lundergan Grimes” and points out that even MoveOn.org is now attacking her. Blue-on-blue violence!

Why Didn’t Mitt Romney Think of this?

As you may recall, the Democrat/Media machine spent much of 2012 hounding Mitt Romney for his tax returns. Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid even claimed he had inside info that Mitt Romney never paid any taxes. When Romney did finally release his tax returns, they showed nothing improper, only that he gave a lot more to charity than most people do; which the Democrats also said was a scandal.

When a journalist asked Democrat Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper for his tax returns, the governor threatened to throw him in jail.

“You’re really going to call police,” I said as he dialed 911. “OK. I’ll record this and I’ll leave.”

How are you liking the New Authoritarianism?

The Political Scandal That Should Shake-Up #VASen But Probably Won’t

As expected, Democrat Terry McAuliffe has really sleazed up Virginia politics. In order to stop a Democrat legislator from resigning and giving the Republicans a majority in the Virginia State Senate — which would be a speed bump on the Democrats’ plans to implement Obamacare, raise taxes, and enact new gun control and anti-coal policies — the McAuliffe regime apparently offered to give the legislator’s daughter a job, perhaps even an appointment to the Federal bench. Now, it has come to light that Virginia Democrat Senator Mark Warner — who was easily winning his re-election campaign against anodyne establishment Republican Ed Gillespie — was also involved in attempts to bribe the legislator to stay.

The son of a former Virginia state senator has told federal investigators that U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner discussed the possibility of several jobs, including a federal judgeship, for the senator’s daughter in an effort to dissuade him from quitting the evenly divided state Senate.

On June 6, three days before the state senator’s resignation became official, Warner called Puckett’s son, Joseph, and discussed an appointment to the federal bench as well as a potential corporate position for Martha Puckett Ketron, according to Joseph Puckett’s attorney, Charles E. “Chuck” James Jr. of Williams Mullen.

In the past, Democrats have shown a high tolerance for political sleaze within their own ranks, so this probably won’t tarnish Mark Warner’s prospects too much. It does point out, however, that for all the left’s keening about “white privilege” and “male privilege” the real privilege in our culture comes from being politically connected. Ordinary people do not have the access to easy, well-paid jobs that the friends and relations of the political class do.

MFM Rallies Around President Boyfriend

Filed under: 2014 Elections,Media Bias

The Rolling Stone – that magazine that was relevant back in the boomer era -  has a cover story out to convince its audience of aging hipsters that Obama is awesome. Obama toady Paul Krugman looks at the trillions of dollars in debt racked up under Obama’s stewardship, the anemic economy, the record number of Americans on food stamps, and concludes …”This is what a successful presidency looks like.”

So, if the Obama presidency is “successful,” does that mean he meant to tank the economy, destroy America’s international reputation, accelerate the growing distrust of people for their Government, and exacerbate inter-racial tensions?

The formerly reputable news network CNN picked up on the Rolling Stone piece, and asked “Is Obama one of the best presidents.” They concluded, yeah, President Boyfriend is pretty awesome.

The MFM is trying to stick up for their beloved trophy president as a response to recent reports that Obama is now toxic to his own party. Kentucky Democrat senate candidate Alison Grimes pointedly refused to answer where she had even voted for Obama for president.

And the MFM is totes horrified at the apostate for not proudly proclaiming her vote for the Lightworker. Chuck Todd at NBC (a wholly owned subsidiary of DNC, Inc.) has declared that, for the crime of disrespecting the president, Grimes is dead to him. “If you can’t find a way to stand behind your party’s president, you can disagree with him but can’t answer that basic question and come across looking ridiculous. I think she disqualified herself.”

By which he means, “Disqualified herself from getting any more support from me and the rest of the Obama Kneepads Fluffer Club.”

What Comes Around, Goes Around

In 2006, a Democrat activist caught Republican Senate Candidate George Allen using the nonsense word ‘Macacca’ at a political gathering. The Washington Post subsequently ran over 100 stories and editorials declaring that this word… which very few people had ever heard of… was the most vile racial slur evah! It cost Allen the election.

Then, in 2012, a Democrat activist took a video of Mitt Romney stating a true-but-politically-incorrect fact that 47% of the electorate pay little or no taxes and receive massive Government benefits. The media covered the gaffe relentlessly, which may have cost him the election. (That and his terrible, terrible campaign operation, a whole lot of voter fraud, and the general stupidity of the Democrat base).

The Democrats have adopted the technique as a standard campaign tactic; activist groups follow Republicans everywhere, hoping to catch the next “Macaca” or “Legitimate Rape” aside that can be covered in heavy rotation on MSDNC and convince the low-information voters to vote Democrat because obviously if the media is spending 24 hours a day talking about how bad a politician is, he must be really, really bad.

Now, along comes James O’Keeffe to turn the tables, catching a Democrat Senate candidate’s big money contributors cheering on that she will screw over the working people who are expected to vote for her.

VO: This Grimes campaign insider has no doubts about who the real Allison Grimes is and what she believes.

PV: So you know that Alison will help us stop coal?

Niko Elmaleh: Come on Dude. What do you think?

PV: I think yes, but I haven’t heard it straight up.

Niko Elmaleh: She can’t say it straight up.

PV: She supports big coal.

Niko Elmaleh: No. She’s going to fuck ‘em as soon as she gets elected.

Of course, the Democrats are crying “not fair.” Now that the ambush video tactic is being used against a Democrat, it’s suddenly out of bounds.

I guess the difference is, you won’t see video that embarrasses a Democrat played endlessly in the media or subjected to 100 stories and editorials in a major news publication.

Republicans Have a Boehner for Gay Candidates

John Boehner has been out helping raise money for gay Republican congressional candidates like Rob Tisei and Carl deMaio. [Hat Tip: Peter H]

Groups that support preserving traditional marriage have objected to Republicans supporting candidates who disagree with their cause. Or, as the left-wing “Talking Points Memo” characterized the story: Republicans are anti-gay bigots who hate everybody.

It’s a good thing that Republican leadership is doing outreach to gays. It would be a much better thing if they did some outreach to conservatives, working class voters, and others who stay home because the GOP offers them nothing.
