Ashley Judd exploring Senate run
Politico, by Manu Raju

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/4/2012 1:31:11 PM

Ashley Judd vs. Mitch McConnell? It might not be as far-fetched as you think. The Hollywood movie star and eighth-generation Kentuckian is seriously exploring a 2014 run for the Senate to take on the powerful Republican leader, four people familiar with the matter tell POLITICO. In recent weeks, Judd has spoken with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) about the possibility of a run, has discussed a potential bid with a Democratic pollster and has begun to conduct opposition research on herself to see where she’s most vulnerable in the Bluegrass State, sources say.

And when one digs through the bottom of the rabbit hole, one finds oneself here.

She is a hateful, screeching pro-abort. I hope the people in Kentucky have more brains than the ones in Minnesota.

Ashley Judd is smart with the creds to do this, but she appears to be a far left Democrat. Talking to Gillibrand sort of proves that!

There are many things that US is following Japanese footsteps. This is one of them. Japanese political party brought the "stars" to get the number of the seats solely because they are known just like Judd. Besides, the other side is the perfect old outdated senator whom they will claim that is out of touch. Japan is full of part-timers and USA will be full of part-timers who work less than 30 hours a week. And Obamacare will cause forever red-ink for USA, just like medical cost is causing forever red-ink for Japan.

Oh why not? Bread and circuses baby. Bread and circuses. I predict zero gotcha questions and fawning coverage.

I´m pretty close to believing the only way out of it is through it. Perhaps our media run government should sink to the most ridiculous level possible. Meanwhile the story almost writes itself doesn´t it? Woo hoo Senator Judd! I can almost already hear Kerry, Franken, and whathisname from New York calling her ´´my good friend from Kentucky´´. Jeeze Louise the people we send to DC.

She has suffered from depression, along with millions of others. I wouldn´t vote for her because of her political beliefs or what I know of them so far, but are we really back in the Dark Ages where someone who has been treated for depression (and is leading a normal and successful life now) can´t achieve or run for public office without being stigmatized? She has been open and public about her health problem so what is there to "cover"?

OK...people. I don´t care if she has suffered from depression. Many have. However, that said, she is a true whack job. Have you ever watched her at a race when her husband wins...what an ego. It is all about her. He practically ignores her cause she is making a fool of herself. I think Washington has enough people who think the entire world revolves around them. I want someone elected who cares about the country and freedom for the people who live and work here. And, I don´t care how many degrees she has from wherever. Have family with many degrees from "good" places....no common sense, at all.

Her younger race driver husband would probably be thrilled to have her do something that would get her out of pit row. She is the kind of wife that the racers loathe.

The worst was when she tried to climb atop his car at Indy and HE had to fend her off. Sensible people don´t climb on those $$$$ cars.

Her TV series was awful and lasted about a nanosecond. Two or maybe three episodes. Poof!

If Al Franken can get elected to the Senate and Obama can get himself elected and re-elected, why not Ashley Judd?

"It’s unconscionable to breed with the number of children who are starving to death in impoverished countries. I know it’s a strong opinion a lot of people won’t agree with and that’s not to say some day I might not feel a different impulse.” ~~Ashley Judd

I haven´t heard her take on low talent actresses making untold millions of dollars producing sub-par movies while millions of Americans work 2 or 3 jobs just to get by. Guess that hits to close to home.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush

PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 10:01:12 PM     Post Reply
The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent
Doesn´t Lead to ´Elevated or Even

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:47:27 PM     Post Reply
At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
