To voter fraud?
To voter fraud?
During his MSNBC show on Thursday night, Chris Matthews discussed a soundbite of Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst stating her stance on the Second Amendment from two years ago and interpreted it as “pretty radical” to the point that “[s]he has talked about killing politicians she doesn’t agree with.” Here is what Ernst actually said (which was uncovered in a Huffington Post story from Wednesday): “I have a beautiful little Smith & Wesson, nine millimeter, and it goes with me virtually everywhere, but I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family, whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from a government should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”
Liberals love to complain that there’s far too much money in politics and on Sunday’s Meet the Press, the entire panel predictably fretted that political spending could spell the demise of American democracy. NBC’s Luke Russert introduced the segment by lamenting how “there’s real concern about the role money is playing in our politics with some even going as far to argue our democracy is being bought and sold.” While the NBC reporter did complain about political spending on both sides of the political spectrum, Russert did his best to paint the conservative Koch brothers as having a far bigger influence on the so-called problem of money in politics.
During a campaign rally for Martha Coakley, Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Massachusetts, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made some controversial comments about private businesses not being job creators. Speaking on Friday, Clinton told a Democratic audience to ignore people who say “corporations and businesses create jobs.” Despite the potential 2016 presidential candidate expressing far left anti-business sentiments, all three network Sunday morning political shows (ABC’s This Week, CBS’s Face The Nation, and NBC’s Meet the Press) conveniently ignored Ms. Clinton’s remarks during their midterm coverage.
CNN’s Alisyn Camerota promoted a liberal talking point about the Obama administration’s response to the Ebola outbreak on Friday’s New Day, as she interviewed Rep. Jason Chaffetz. Camerota spotlighted “many Democrats…say that Republicans in the Senate have blocked the President’s nominee for a surgeon general that we could have had one year ago – but Republicans have been an impediment.”
Liberal celebrity Russell Brand on Thursday announced he’s “open” to the idea that the United States government may have been behind the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks. Talking to a British reporter, Brand theorized, “Do you trust the American government? Do you trust the British government? What I do think is very interesting is the relationship that the Bush family have had for a long time with the Bin Laden family.” Pressed on the issue, the comedian declared, “We have to remain open-minded to any kind of possibility.”
Since the Media Research Center first published its study on Wednesday showing a glaring double standard in how the network evening newscasts covered the anti-Republican wave in the 2006 midterm election vs the likely anti-Democratic wave in 2014, various liberal pundits and journalists took to the airwaves in an effort to dismiss the findings. On CNBC’s Squawk Box on Thursday, chief Washington correspondent John Harwood argued: “Well, look, I don’t know what data they were using for that….” Later that afternoon, on Fox News’s The Five, co-host Bob Beckel was so exasperated he could barely come up with an answer to the numbers.
On his Fox News show Thursday night, host Bill O’Reilly cited the Media Research Center study on the network evening newscasts censoring coverage of the 2014 midterms: “Eight years ago, the nightly network newscasts went full out to cover the campaigns, which Democrats were favored to win….But this time around, the graph is far different. At this point in time, ABC News did 36 election reports eight years ago. So far this year, zero, nothing. CBS, 58 in year 2006. 14 this year. NBC, 65 eight years ago. 11 this year. Simply stunning.” O’Reilly turned to Democratic strategist James Carville for reaction, who promptly tried to defend the lack of coverage: “I think the more plausible explanation is, you know, President Obama hasn’t been able to change politics and inspire people, and politics is not selling very well on network news….I think the network people are striving for ratings and to make money. I don’t think that ideology is the first thing they think about.”
And I am probably all wrong..
But it seems when things are really getting crappy for Buck Ofama and the DemocRATs…
There is an outbreak of ‘shootings’..
So now all attention will be turned back to the ‘guns are bad’ debate…
Not about the actual people whom used the guns..
But the guns themselves..
Makes me wanna kick something..
Like anyone whom agrees with Buck Ofama…
Earlier this week, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group “Everytown for Gun Safety” setup a Minnesota state Political Action Committee.
With his flag planted in Minnesota, Bloomberg can now spend millions of dollars in advertising, mailings, phone bankings, and contributions to anti-gun candidates throughout Minnesota.
Setting up shop this close to the election means that his new Minnesota PAC will be able to spend under the radar right up until the election – making it very difficult to counter their moves.
But, we live here. We know where to focus and what messages will resonate with the voters.
As the Minnesota Gun Owners PAC, we’re going to double down on targeted ad buys throughout the state in key districts to ensure that we’re protecting vulnerable pro-gun candidates and putting pressure on the anti-gunners in swing districts. We’ll be unveiling those ads starting this weekend.
We’re going to make sure that our friends are protected and our allies have a great chance to win in their districts.
But we need your help over the next eleven days.
I don’t believe the stakes could be any higher than they are right now. Here’s how you can help:
First, volunteer this weekend or next week for a pro-2nd Amendment candidate.
You can also look at our Facebook page for up-to-date volunteer opportunities that we learn about throughout the week to support our endorsed candidates.

Canadian shooting underscores who the real terrorists are
After murdering an unarmed Canadian soldier on Wednesday, an Islamic terrorist drove to the Canadian Parliament and ran inside.
Armed with a rifle, he intended to commit even more damage, but was thankfully brought down by the Sergeant at Arms.
Anti-gun activists have already pounced on this shooting to call for more stringent gun control laws in Canada. But one author contrasted the Parliament attack with another Canadian terrorist attack using a car:
What about the Muslim terrorist who drove down two Canadian soldiers on Monday, killing one of them? Does that prove that we need more car control?
That would be liberal logic for you.
GOA report: Government thinks YOU are a potential terrorist
Sadly, much of this “liberal logic” has infested the Obama administration, which continues to ignore the real threats to freedom and to blame gun owners instead.
After all, what do the above two terror attacks (in Canada) have in common with the recent Oklahoma beheading … the first Ft. Hood shooting … both World Trade Center attacks … the attempted Times Square bombing … the Empire State building shooting … the Boston Marathon bombing … the Arkansas recruiter center slaying … and more?
The answer? All these attacks were perpetrated by Islamic militants — most of whom were yelling Allahu Akbar while perpetrating their evil deeds.
Which is what makes the Obama Administration’s treatment of gun owners so obviously political. The administration has ignored the threat from real terrorists, while insisting on calling murderous rampages — such as the one by Major Nidal Hassan at Ft. Hood — “workplace violence,” rather than “terrorism.”
In fact, several reports issued around the country — by the FBI, the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and several state governments — all point to conservatives and gun owners as being the real threat to the safety and welfare of Americans.
As stated in a report that GOA recently published:
If you are the kind of person who takes a principled view on gun rights and limited government … has attempted to stock up on firearms, magazines, and ammunition in fear of possible and actual bans … or has ever voted for a third party in a political election … then know this — you had better look over your shoulder, because your government is watching you, and considers you to be a threat.
Make sure to get GOA’s report entitled, “Attention Gun Owner: Your Government Considers You to be a Potential Terrorist.”
Read it … pass it around … let your friends and acquaintances know who the Obama Administration considers to be the real enemy.
And then in less than two weeks, you and your friends can do something about it — when Election Day arrives.
So please help your friends, family, church group, gun club, etc., stay informed and remain active. Download GOA’s 2014 Voter Guide today and pass it around to your pro-gun family and friends!
