… More on the Grandma!! [#Chicagoland]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 31st,2014

.. as it turns out , she is originally from Texas …

.. that explains a great deal …

.. she sounds amazing , as it sounds in the link below …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. she really is amazing …

Recently on C-SPAN, a woman describing herself as a “black senior-citizen grandmother” called in to let the nation know why she just voted “straight Republican,” including miserable economic conditions in the black community, the Democratic Party’s advocacy of abortion, and its mishandling of welfare:


I am an 82-year-old black senior citizen grandmother, and I voted straight Republican because I have noticed in the years what the Democrat Party has done to my people. Unemployment is higher in the black community that it is … double with unemployment than it is anywhere else.

There’s no way I could continue to say I’m a Christian and stay with the Democrat Party. They advocate the killing of babies and taking from the doers and giving to the ones sitting doing nothing. And I’m not talking about the people that need help, because with so many getting help that doesn’t need help, it prevents the people that really need help from getting it.

The grandmother, from Texas, also blasted Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis for “standing 14 hours at the podium for the killing of babies.” The party’s focus on abortion she linked with its elimination of God from the platform:


I can remember the Democrat party took God out of the platform and they voted three times to put it back in, but three times it lost… For that reason there’s no way I can say I’m a Christian and stay in the Democrat Party.

Before ending the call, she also blasted the “foolishness” of labeling all criticism of Barack Obama as racist:


We need to stop that foolishness. This man is destroying this country and it’s what he intended to do. He said he would transform America and that’s what he’s doing.

… Is Martha Coakley this Bad [#Mass Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 31st,2014

.. or , is Charlie Baker doing that well ? …

.. I think that it is a combination of the two …

.. according to the Boston Globe , Baker has opened a 9 – pt lead on Coakely … 9 points , in Massachusetts , of all things …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. I would have to rate Baker as the favourite to win the race [now] , but it is still the People ‘ s Republic of Massachusetts . Weird Thngs can still happen …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 30th,2014

.. and the locals [the states] are picking up the ball …

.. recently , NY Gov Andrew Cuomo and NJ Gov Chris Christie held a joint press conference . This carries a great deal of weight because of the symbolism , plus it hits 2 of the 5 major airports where West Africans are permitted to enter the US [NY JFK , NJ Newark] …

.. [h/t — wchildblog.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. it will put pressure on the other Governors [Ga (Nathan Deal) [Hartsfield — Atlanta] , Virgina (Terry McAuliffe) [Dulles — DC] , and Illinois (Pat Quinn) [O ‘ Hare — Chicago] … to follow suit …

… A Classless Stunt [#Jeanne Shaheen]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 30th,2014

.. if this is a symbol of the kind of campaign that Jeanne Shaheen is running , then may God in Heaven help her …

.. Scott Brown was attempting to make his closing statement at a debate the other night in a campaign debate in New Hampshire . The problem was , that Shaheen would not let him finish …

.. [h/t — ReclaimOurRepublic.wordpress.com]…
.. [link] to the debate segment …

.. someone that is fairly sure of their position is usually disciplined enough to know when to open their mouth , and when to keep their mouth shut . Shaheen clearly does not know the difference . She has run a horrible campaign , and could well lose her re – election effort because of it ….

.. even her own supporters did not  like it …. they roundly booed her for  doing what she did …

.. Vickers is , of course , the Sergeant – at – Arms of Canada ‘ s lower House of Parliament . He was the very good guy who stopped the Islamic jihadi lone wolf attack the other day in Ottawa , Canada …

… This is Why Election Day Will Be Good for the GOP [#Nevada]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 30th,2014

.. when you look at early voting numbers like this ..

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com(CampaignSpot)]…
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. these are #s roughly for the 4th Congressional District . It is one that is currently held by a suburban DemoCrap . Nevada ‘ s delegation is currently 2 GOP , 2 Dem …

.. normally , the Dems run ahead in the early vote . Not this year , folks . Especially in the 4th district ….

.. this district is a marginally Dem district , according to the Partisan Voting Index P[pvi] … according TO THE cOOK INDEX , IT RATES AS A d+4 district . It is not an impossible district for a Republican to win , but it is not easy …

.. however , Nevada ‘ s characteristics do help … Nevada is the fastest growing state in the nation . Even after the recession , it still is the case . Most of the rest of the state is heavily GOP , outside of Reno . Clark County [where Las VEgas is] is more heavily Democrap …

.. the state is still growing like gangbusters . So , the district lines contain added population from after redistricting . So , Nv 4 is likely becoming more GOP – friendly …

.. the trend in these early votes is very good for the GOP … I can see the GOP sweeping the statwide officees , and possibly pick up Nv 4 as well …

… the Michael Brown case is going to be a Difficult One [#grand jury]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 30th,2014

.. if this news report is to be believed …

.. granted , it is the New York Slimes . So , take it with a grain of salt (or two) …

.. but , it is obvious that Ptl. Darren Wilson was seriously injured by this perpetrator (Michael Brown) . Brown was the aggressor . He attacked Wilson in his patrol car . He head – butted him . He punched him several times . Also , the perpetrator went for the gun , and there was a struggle for it . The gun went off several times …

.. [h/t — NewYorkSlimes.com]..
.. [link] to the news story …

.. so , the grand jury is going to be presented with a very serious problem . Is a police officer to be stripped of his right and ability to defend himself , especially if the perpetrator is the aggressor , and seriously injures an officer . The officer should then be justified in using appropriate lethal force to bring the suspect to justice ….

.. — [update] — there has been more information that has leaked out . it makes patrolman Darrren Wilson ‘ s story a good bit more believable . It also serves to discredit many of the eyewitnesses to the shooting . The plot thickens ….

… Charlie Baker Maintains the Lead [#Mass Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 29th,2014

.. and Martha Coakley is in big trouble …

.. Coakley should be winning this race in a walk . She has run for and won election twice as AG of Massachusetts . She is a known quantity . She has the huge advantage of 6 to 1 DemoCrap voter registration , and even greater DemoCrap voter support . So , what is the problem ?? …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the poll result …

.. he has worked his butt off . He has run an excellent campaign . He is the unknown quantity , and the electorate has , so far , liked what it has seen . He has held up fairly well in the debates . So , what is it with her ? …

.. she is the known quantity . People are considering her for higher office , ce before [for the U.S. Senate , in 2010] , and do not like what they see ….

.. Charlie Baker has a good chance to win . He still has to work his buns off , and benefit from some good fortune . Then , the DemoCraps will be in shock from losing the Governor ‘ s mansion again …

… What is Mary Landrieu Thinking ?? [#campaign tactic]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 29th,2014

.. Mary Landrieu is in enough trouble . She does not need to buy more .

.. She decided to tee off on State Sen. Elbert Guillory [R-La] , a black Republican , for being an opportunist . Bad move …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // campaign ad ..

.. Guillory is one of the most respected political folks in Louisiana . He easily could have , if he had wanted to , have been the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate against Landrieu . He declined , and Bill Cassidy stepped up …

.. she is scared to death of losing any part of the black vote . With Guillory ‘ s opposition , it could very well happen …

… If This is The Case [#Dem Vote Among Women]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 29th,2014

.. then the DemoCraps are really going to get their butts kicked [wholesale and resale] in November …

.. the poll result shows a commanding GOP vote lead among men [big shock] . That is not news . The big shock (for the DemoCRaps) is that [between the parties] , the vote is virtually tied between them among women …

.. [h/t — TAS.org]…
.. [link] to the blog passage ..

.. for the DemoCraps to have any chance at winning a decent victory , they have to have a decent margin among women voters . If they do not have it , they are dead …

.. if this poll is to be believed , then the GOP is winning decisively among married women . They would have to to offset the usual Dem advantage among minority women and single women …

… What a Big Difference [#Florida Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 28th,2014

.. Rick Scott has been doing a bang – up job , and the media has been trying to cover it up …

.. at least his campaign has been carrying forward the message . God Speed , it is working …

.. [h/t — m.Newsbusters.org]..
.. [link] to the blog space …

.. Scott has taken a narrow 4 to 5 point lead over turncoat DemoCrap Charlie Christ . The stats that Newsbusters quotes should help to make all the difference . I think that Scott will win re – election , but it will not be easy …

… Another Newspaper Endorsement for Bruce Rauner [#Illinois Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 28th,2014

.. and this one is a big surprise …

.. why ? it is the Chicago Sun – Times …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the newspaper endorsement …

.. the timing could not be better . EArly voting has begun in Illinois , and the endorsements of both the Tribune and the Sun – Times will [or should be] be of help to Rauner on gathering votes from suburbanites in the Chicagoland area and the surrounding countines …

.. downstate , the folks could not care less . Up around Chicago , and the surrounding counties , it matters a lot , or , hopefully it will . Keeping Quinn ‘ s margin ‘ s down in the Chicagoland area [like what happened in the DemoCrap primary] will be of great help to Rauner and the rest of the GOP ticket ….

… Horrendous Gaffe in N.C. [#Kay Hagan]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 28th,2014

.. if anything , you do not want inside dealing or self – dealing of this type coming out at any time …

.. in this case , it is worse …. Senator Kay Hagan [D-NC] has gotten caught voting for the stimulus . No major shock . The big shock is that her husband and her son have been caught profiting and enriching themselves from the stimulus bill booty .

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the corruption report …

.. whether it is cleared by ethics lawyers or not , it still smells . The appearance of insider dealing is a giant – sized stinker . It always is , and the timing could not have been worse for Hagan …

.. Hagan is under 50% in the polls , and , after leading GOP nominee Thom Tillis for about 6 weeks [from about 3 to 5 points] , she is now tied with him . Tillis now clearly has the momentum , early voting has begun , and he is getting more than his share of newspaper and TV station endorsements …

.. momentum is now clearly with Tillis . How he deals with it will determine whether he can close the sale and defeat Hagan in a ” pink ” state …

… The Way Things are Going in Ohio [#Elections 2014]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 28th,2014

.. I think that I can safely make my predictitons , now …

.. [-] Governor & Lt. Governor — John Kasich and Mary Taylor

This will set Kasich up to be a presidential contender , that is , if he really wants to do so . There is some question whether he really does or not . Taylor , well , she could emerge as a candidate for Governor in 2018 . She will be one of many , especially from a deep GOP bench …

.. [-] Treasurer — Josh Mandel

Mandel could be setting himself up for a rematch with US Senator Sherrod Brown in 2018 . Then , Brown will be forced to run in an off – year election , and without presidential support on the ballot . A matchup like that favours Mandel , especially coming out of NE Ohio …

A Republican coming out of NE Ohio [Mandel] is huge trouble for the DemoCraps . Their margin out of Cuyahoga County is usually cut drastically , and the surrounding counties are much larger [Lake , Lorain , Geauga , Summit , & Medina] and far more GOP – friendly …

.. [-] Auditor — Dave Yost

Yost may end up going for either AG or for Treasurer . Not sure , do not know him all that well …

.. [-] Secretary of State — Jon Husted

good question on his future prospects . May want to try for Governor or Lt. Governor , maybe AG …

.. [-] Congress

currently — 12 GOP , 4 DemoCrap …

the only district that might have a chance of flipping is the downstate one around Columbus , the one that is currently held by Congresscritter Joyce Beatty . it is only a minority – influence district [about 32% black] , and is surrounded by heavily GOP – friendly turf …

.. [-] State House

currently — 60 GOP , 39 DemoCrap ..

the GOP should add seats . The only question is how many ? I am thinking 3 to 5 , maybe even 6 . Such a total [63 to 66] would be devastating for the Dems . Here is why :

[1] it takes a 3/5 majority to override a Governor ‘ s veto . A legislature that is fe3ling its oats could buck the Gov and jam though legislation of its liking …

[2] social or business legislation can be tacked onto the new [or a revision] budget bill . Any budget bill adopted with a 3/5ths vote cannot be repealed by a referendum or initiative (as Senate Bill 5 was)…

[3] also , a regular bill adopted with a 3/5ths vote of both chambers takes effect immediately . It too cannot also be repealed by referendum …

.. [-] State Senate

currently — 23 GOP , 10 DemoCrap …

it is kinda hard for the GOP to add any seats . They control pretty much every seat that they can . However , there are 1 or 2 marginal Dem seats that can be picked off in an off – year election . I think that the GOP will grab one of them , maybe both ….

.. so , you see what I think . The DemoCraps are trying . The Downballots [SecState , AG , Auditor] are advertising , but that will not be of much help . The Governor candidate for the DemoCraps [Ed Fitzgerald] has not aired one TV ad …

.. not One . That is a prescription for a mega – blowout , folks . How big ? maybe 15% in margin , possibly 20% , or more ….

.. we will see ….

… The Tragedy of Terrorism [#Canada]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,October 26th,2014

.. the horror of terrorism has hit Canada and Canadians , in a way that strikes anger and resolve into the hearts of us all …

.. the other day , a ” lone wolf ” jihadi Islamic radical attacked the Cenotaph [Canada ‘ s National War Memorial] and the Parliament House …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. the Canadians were very lucky . One was not . A Canadian soldier on ceremonial guard at the Cenotaph was killed , but the jihadi himself was killed inside of Parliament House . Thankfully , security at Parliament House was just enough to cover the situation …

.. the hero was the Canadian Parliament ‘ s Sergeant at ARms , Kevin Vickers . Vickers himself was a long time RCMP officer before taking up his posting at the Parliament House . He was definitely armed . He took out the perp …

.. thank you Kevin Vickers , and God Bless You . You helped to prevent a much larger massacre …

.. [h/t — Twitchy.com]…
.. [link] to the debate zinger …

.. Ernst pounced , and hit Braley with a right uppercut . Joni reminded the debate [and viewing] audience that she commands a battalion in Iowa ‘ s National Guard . She was one of those ” boots on the ground … ”

.. by the by , the term is ” ground troops , ” folks ….

… Ebola as an ” October Surprise ” [#campaign issue]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 25th,2014

.. maybe , just maybe ..

.. the ObamaCrap White House has been acting like a bunch of idiots on this . Their idea of ” crisis management ” has been a disaster , as usual . You have to deal with the issue [the problem] . You cannot deal with it as a political item to be finessed , news cycle by news cycle . Crises do not work that way …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. the timing could not have been worse for the DemoCraps . They need POTUS raising money . They also need him [where possible] campaigning . Right now , he can effectively do neither one . The money would be poison to the candidate , and the appearance for a campaign would be worse …

.. it also suffocates the message put out by the Dems . They are dependent on the ObamaCraps and their idea of ” crisis management . ” They may get it right , someday , but , obviously , not now …. the bad [and worse] publicity makes tyring to run the GOTV (espc w. early voting) far more difficult . The noise scares the hell out of everyone ….

… What is Deval Patrick up To ?!?! [#Massachusetts Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 25th,2014

.. good question ?? …

.. his moves [featherbedding supporters & issuing pardons] are not the wisest of moves . At least for a political campaign . Even in the People ‘ s Republic of Taxachusetts …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. I think that he has something else in mind : Attorney General of the United States …

.. remember , Patrick was Assistant AG for Civil Rights under Wilhelm der Fibmeister . It took a recess appointment and one hell of a political fight to finally get him confirmed as that job … so you can see what he has done since then ….

.. given the current circumstances [55 Dem // 45 GOP] in the Senate , I think that good ol ‘ Dingy Harry Reid and Company can get him [or someone else] confirmed by the Senate during the Lame Duck session . Especially if the DemoCraps get blown out [as expected] in the Midterm elections …

.. it will be the DemoCraps last chance to get anyone remotely controversial confirmed by the Senate . However , the GOP can make the Dems sweat , espc. if the Defeated Caucus is the possible margin of confirmation . Boy , would that be fun to watch …

.. if any significant and material numbers of our troops are killed because of insufficient safety training and precautions , there is going to be hell to pay . It will not just be in the military itself . The uniformed military will hold those responsible , and court – martial them . The real hell – to – pay will be in the civilian sector ….

.. i.e. , there will be political hell to pay ….

.. Bill Clinton got off easy . Whether he should have been removed from office is a political decision , and a political act . The American people did not want it . But , it should have been seriously considered . What he did to the office , to the country , to his family , and to his reputation was unforgivable ….

.. the upcoming polls should be interesting …. especially the partisan lean …

— [update] — Dan Sullivan has been doing beautifully on the campaign trail . His campaign message is fantastic , and he has had incumbent Mark Begich constantly on his heels . The polls finally show it … Sullivan leads Begich 48% to 42% …

.. LePage won in 2010 in a four way contest . This time , he faces a different dummyCrap , but the same Independent [Elliot Cutler] …

.. the poll they are quoting here is highly questionable , and leans Dem . So LePage is likely leading by a couple of points …

… Rauner is Up 4 in Illinois [#Illinois Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 23rd,2014

.. and , hopefully , he is there to stay …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the poll result …

.. Bruce Rauner has had a couple of rocky weeks . He once had a solid 8 to 10 point lead on his DemoCrap opponent , Governor Pat Quinn . That evaporated , and Rauner even fell behind Quinn for the first few weeks of October …

.. that now seems to have changed . Rauner has withstood the DemoCrap slimebombs , taken their best hits , and has come back with a gusto . The superior GOP ground game in Illinois should help . Also , a liberal dose of $$ from Rauner [who is worth more than $100 million] and some spare $$ from the GOP campaign committees should also help out …

.. I am still thinking that Bruce Rauner will be Illinois ‘ next Governor . If the election had been held earlier this month , Quinn would have survived . Not now . Rauner is now charging like gangbusters , and is peaking at the right time …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 23rd,2014

.. but , how much ? ..

.. a lot of it is already ” baked in cake . ” You look at the political record . Especially , one needs to look at the historical record …. His Lordship is a grotesque failure …

.. but , how much of that carries through into the GOP campaign message ? …. Also , how does that translate into policy ? …

.. [h/t — TribLive.com(opinion)]…
.. [link] to the opinion column …

.. also , how will POTUS react ? Or , in his case , not react ? There are pending issues [immigration , new AG] that will pop up in the ” lame duck ” session . How they are handled and finessed will help to tell a great deal about how the next two years might go ? ….

.. The GOP will gain seats in the House , a Governorship or two [net] , and a good number of seats in the state legislatures . Maybe a couple of legislative chambers will flip …. I hope so …

.. the biggie is the Senate . Will control switch , and by how much ? Even if the Dems survive , it will be by the skin of their teeth , giving them no margin for error …. I am believing that the GOP will control the Senate . The question is , by how much ? ….
