Wendy Davis: Greg Abbott Might Ban Interracial Marriage
It wasn’t enough for Wendy Davis, the Democratic candidate for governor of Texas, to claim that her opponent — who is wheelchair-bound — doesn’t care about disabled people. Now she and her campaign are claiming that Abbott might also want to ban interracial marriage. There’s only one problem: Abbott’s wife Cecilia is Hispanic.
Republican Tsunami Building?
I leave the precise parsing of the poll data to Sean Trende, Nate Silver, Henry Olsen, and other numerologist/astrologists, and go by my gut feel, which is usually though not always right. As the 2012 election approached I had a nagging feeling that Obama was going to pull it out, or that if Romney did indeed win it would be by the narrowest of margins, and not the landslide some (including me at one early point) thought he might.
Surveillance Video Catches Man From Liberal Group Stuffing Hundreds Of Ballots Into Ballot Box In Arizona…
Remind me again, aren’t Dems claiming any restrictions on early voting is racist, or something?
Jason Carter, Jimmy’s Grandson, Thinks Our Rights Come From the Government
Jason Carter is who the Democrats have chosen to lose in the gubernatorial race this year in Georgia. Carter is History’s Greatest Monster’s grandson. He’s a Duke grad. He’s a practicing attorney. He is in the Georgia State Senate.
Do Democrats Always Win Close Statewide Elections?
Let’s check the data on statewide elections between 1998 to 2013.
Ineligible DACA Beneficiaries Discovered on NC Voting Rolls
With the North Carolina U.S. Senate race in a dead heta, state election officials say they have discovered 145 names on the voting rolls who are ineligible to vote because they are illegal immigrants who have been granted President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.
850 voters in NYC are officially 164 years old
A single Bronx voter listed in official records as being 164 years old led Board of Elections officials to review their files — where they turned up another 849 New Yorkers who were supposedly alive when Abe Lincoln was president.
Mark Udall Advocates Condone Voter Fraud: “That’s not even like lying or stealing”
“Awesome” is a very common word used by Democratic operatives in Colorado when discussing potential voter fraud. Project Veritas Action went undercover in the Centennial State to reveal just how prone their mail-in ballot system is to likely voter fraud.
‘Ineligible’ LV candidate could reach Assembly anyway
Meghan Smith, who lost a District Court ruling that she was ineligible to win a Las Vegas seat in the Nevada Assembly, lost a second legal battle Monday, this one with the Nevada Supreme Court.
Republicans Making Gains Among Men, Women, Maybe the Intersexed
A new AP/GfK poll shows that among women who are likely to vote, Republican congressional candidates lead 44 percent to 42. Among male likely voters, they lead 50–36. The findings are similar to the exit polls in the last midterm elections elections, in 2010, when Republicans narrowly won women (49–48 percent) and men were six points more likely to back the Republican candidates. Nothing special seems to be happening to the gender gap–the difference in how men and women vote. Republicans are doing relatively well among men and women alike.
Greg Abbott Leading Wendy Davis Among Women, Nearly Tied Among Hispanics
Wendy Davis is, as I’ve mentioned, a terrible candidate. But that should not obscure the fact that her opponent, Texas attorney general Greg Abbott, is a remarkably good one.
Will You (Also) Tolerate This?
As some of you know, I’m not only American, I’m Coloradan.
California Republican Party gets aggressive in Assembly races
While attention was focused on the 36th and 65th Assembly districts – where Democratic members Steve Fox of Palmdale and Sharon Quirk-Silva of Fullerton are highly vulnerable this election – the California Republican Party was quietly expanding its efforts to pick up other legislative seats in moderate areas and break the Democrats’ legislative supermajority.
Updated Early Vote Numbers for Colorado, Florida, Iowa, and Louisiana
The Colorado secretary of state announced today that 332,050 Coloradans have cast ballots already, and out of that total, 145,824 are registered Republicans, and 105,401 are registered Democrats. That translates to a 43.9 percent to 31.7 percent advantage for the GOP.
What Does the GOP’s Big Lead in Nevada’s Early Vote Mean?
The early-vote figures in Nevada look phenomenally good for Republicans and phenomenally bad for Democrats. While Republicans may hope it’s an early indicator of a wide-ranging national wave in favor of the GOP, there are some factors there that are unique to Nevada.
A Denuded Victory
If the polls are to be believed, the Republicans are more likely than not going to regain control of the Senate next year. Probably, they will increase their margin of control in the House. These are good things, I guess, in the sense that all elected Democrats are pro-abortion and removing one from power is always a net positive. So a week from Tuesday I will go out and cast my vote for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN)48% and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)73% and will do so without much complaint.
Why a GOP Wave Election Will Surprise the Media
It’s not every election that comes as a surprise to voters. But this might be the first one that will come as a surprise to those who pay attention to the news.
Sen. Mark Udall Botches MLK Quote: ‘We Judge People By The Content Of Their Color’
Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) flubbed a Martin Luther King Jr. quote on Thursday, during an event.
Nikki Haley’s Dem Opponent: ‘Escort Whore Out the Door!’
While giving a get-out-the-vote speech at a Florence, South Carolina political event, Democrat gubernatorial candidate, State Senator Vincent Shaheen, told cheering fans of his opponent, sitting Republican governor Nikki Haley, “We are going to escort whore out the door.” He then seemed to correct himself by exchanging the word “whore” with “her” while sharing knowing smiles and laughs with the Democrat crowd.

GOP candidate attacked because he is Catholic
It is often said that the last acceptable prejudice is anti-Catholicism (though being anti-Christian and anti-male are certainly in the running) and proof of this is on display in Washington state.
Obama: Apathy, not Voter ID, keeps minorities from polls
Controversial voter identification laws are not the primary reason minority voters are failing to cast their ballots, President Obama said in a radio interview airing Tuesday.
‘Gender gap’ turns against Dems in Colorado
For at least a couple of decades, Democrats have relished the notion that a “gender gap” would lead them to victory. The entire “war on women” rhetorical strategy is premised on the notion that women can be herded into the Democrat corral by scaremongering evil Republicans who want to take way their ability to kill inconvenient children, and keep them subjugated under a male boot. With women favoring Democrats, so the theory went, the two parties would split the male vote and Dems would win.

Obama Administration Released Illegal Immigrants Charged With Homicide
The opening section of the Morning Jolt spells out why Republicans would be fools to even consider any “comprehensive immigration reform” in the lame duck session… or before the end of the Obama administration, really…
Watervliet, NY Asks Pistol Permit Applicants for Facebook Passwords. Or Not.
The photo above shows an application for a pistol permit as used by the Watervliet, New York police department. It comes to us from “Mazz,” a member of the nyfirearms.com forum [registration required]. As you can see the app asks applicants for their “Facebook & Password.” Considering the document’s homemade look and the absurdity of the request, I called the Watervliet PD for confirmation and clarification. I got Chief Ron Boisvert . . .
Your Second Amendment
Tired of listening to Progressives tell you that the Second Amendment only allows people in militias to keep and bear arms? Or that the Founders would have never intended the Second Amendment to apply to modern weapons? In his latest FIREWALL Bill recounts a remarkable conversation about the precise wording of the Second Amendment, and sums up why the document says what it means and means what it says.

Women Prefer Male Bosses Even More Than Men Do
Women fighting for a broader presence in the upper levels of management face at least one very personal obstacle: Most workers don’t want them there. Only one-fifth of people surveyed by Gallup this week said they preferred a female boss over a man. One-third preferred a male boss, and the rest had no preference.

Racist Telephone Poles
What do you see when you look at a telephone pole? Nothing worth noticing? An annoying obstruction? A monument to American ingenuity? Maybe what you ought to see is a sign of America’s deep-lying racism, proof that even the most humdrum and seemingly benign marvel of engineering from America’s Age of Invention is tainted by our history of deadly racial hatred. You don’t see murderous racism when you look at telephone poles? You must not have been to college lately.

In Elegant Ruling, Federal Judge Upholds Traditional Marriage in Puerto Rico
A federal judge has upheld Puerto Rico’s traditional marriage law, bucking the recent trend of federal courts to strike down state laws enshrining traditional marriage. District judge Juan M. Perez-Gimenez, a Carter appointee, delivered a ruling that relied on a conservative reading of the Constitution and legal precedent, and created the potential for a split among the U.S. circuits that could prod the Supreme Court to take up the question in future.

Can ministers who make a living by conducting weddings be required to conduct same-sex weddings?
Donald and Evelyn Knapp are apparently ordained ministers who run The Hitching Post, a chapel in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, at which they conduct weddings. (This strikes me as quite similar to many ministers’ practice of charging to officiate weddings when they are invited to do so at other venues.) Coeur d’Alene has an ordinance banning discrimination based on, among other things, sexual orientation in places of public accommodation.

The Left and the Distortion of History
In the fall of 1991, the relatively small and quiet university of Alfred University in New York State was engrossed in controversy. Indignant professors led students in protests, heated debates raged throughout the divided campus, editorials filled the school and local papers. At the heart of the controversy was the newly-installed statue of King Alfred, the medieval English monarch after whom the town and school was named. Ten years prior, when the monument was commissioned, no one could foresee the controversy it would eventually cause. Yet, its placement offended the sensibilities of the university’s history professors.
The Ferguson powder keg
“Tensions are rising in Ferguson as new details about the fatal shooting of Michael Brown emerge,” reports CBS News in St. Louis. That would seem odd to the proverbial man from Mars, hopping out of his flying saucer and getting up to speed on the crisis, because the new details reveal that what they were protesting over didn’t happen. Rejoice, good people of Ferguson! Michael Brown was not a “gentle giant” executed on the street by a racist white cop for no reason.
The Special Treatment Homosexuals Demand
There is one particular thing that illustrates better than anything else the unreasonableness — and some would say gall — of homosexuality activists. It’s not demanding that bakers, shirt printers and wedding planners be party to events and expression deeply contrary to their principles, as offensive as that is. What I speak of is something even more fundamental, something again brought to light by the recent Vatican synod on the family.
