Here’s How Republicans
Can Take Over the Senate

National Journal, by Charlie Cook

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/2/2013 3:33:55 PM

One difference between professional athletes and fans, and between coaches and cheerleaders, is that while all of them see opportunities for their teams, the athletes and coaches are more likely to also see, and at least privately acknowledge, potential pitfalls. The 2014 Senate races, which are really a fight over who will hold the majority in the chamber, provide plenty of pitfalls for political professionals in both parties to worry about. On its face, the math certainly creates opportunities for Republicans. Twenty Democratic seats are up in 2014, compared with only 15

It´s simple. We need to have articulate true conservatives run for office. We need to get out the vote in numbers like we did in 2010. We have to stop pretending there is nothing we can do. There is but it requires that we DO something. VOTE like your life depended on it because it does.

It´s sad to see Warner (VA) in the solid Democrat column. Landrieu knows how to get those buses rolling with willing voters, she´ll be tough to beat. We need some solid new faces.

They´ll never do anything to earn it.

I have no patience with the all-is-lost-there-is-no-point-in-continuing crowd. Go peddle that piffle somewhere else. We can take the Senate, it will not be easy and we can´t make many mistakes. We have good people running, even better ones will be recruited and we really can do it. Poster, I believe Landrieu can be had. She´s been vulnerable for a long time. Arkansas is a really good prospect, too. Tom Cotton is a comer. We do not have the luxury of just sitting back and hoping. If you can donate money to your favorites or to the national committees, do so. If not, then your time will be very welcome in any of the campaigns. Bumper stickers, yard signs, phone calls. We can do it. With the Senate and a stronger house, we can emasculate the poseur in our Oval Office.

Give up this delusion (being constantly fed by the Left and RINOs like MCCain/Graham) that the GOP should be ´big tent´ moderate and should water down its core principles. That the surest way to win elections is to legitimize itself in the eyes of the NYT. Then the rest will be automatic

It´s all about energy development, and how the Democrats, even if they seem conservative, hurt those prospects (Yes, Mary Landrieu falls into this catagory). After all, she´ll vote for the liberal EPA and other nominees who hurt energy development, which is a key issue in Louisiana.

Also, link how lower gasoline, electricity and fuel costs affect the state, county and city budgets, which have school buses, police cars, fire trucks, and a host of other vehicles which need gasoline, diesel, etc...
And all those schools, universities, and such need electricity, heat and air conditioning cost money too. All of which Democrats are working to increase, which only hurts that funding for teachers, police and firefighters.

Developing oil, natural gas and coal help with jobs in construction, machinery, pipeline makers, steel makers, transportation providers too.

Restricting this development hurts state, county and city revenues too.
And since most of that revenue would be NEW revenues it doesn´t require squeezing more out of the few who pay.

Since it´s new jobs that will be developed it means there´s a growing economy.

Good, high-paying jobs too. Most don´t need college degree which helps those who don´t have it (more than half the country).

Democrats want clean technology? What would $200-300 billion in retrofitting the older coal-fired power plants do instead of just closing them?

#6 I didn´t mean to imply Landrieu couldn´t be had, just that it will be tough. In the 2002 Saturday run off she looked like a defeated candidate until Bubba start making calls and got the buses rolling. We need a strong candidate. I´d support Mike Castle in Delaware just to try and get another vote against Reid. I´d support Scott Brown if he decided on a run against Markey. 51 means we control the agenda.

In the buildup to the 2014 election just watch as the wimpy Republicans stand there with their mouths open as the Democrats who are up for re-election run as faux conservatives.

As it gets close to election day, the liberal media will be looking for a couple of out in right field Republicans to again give an off the wall definition of either abortion or rape that they can use to knock the Republicans down a few pegs.

Then if the Republicans do take the Senate by one seat, look for someone kind McCain to move towards his friends across the aisle and either caucus with the Democrats, or even switch parties. It is not going to be easy for the Republicans.

Abolish the Senate. Then the staff wouldn´t need to worry about being forced into ObamaCare.

Whores-R-US, a fast-growing company, can lease the old Senate chamber and office building. No one would notice a difference.

#10, sadly, that seat will be Markey´s till he dies. Brown will probably run for governor, which frankly he has a much better shot at winning. The greater Boston area and the Northampton-Amherst-Springfield area put the Democratic senate candidate over the top almost all the time. The rest of Massachusetts--the affluent suburbs and small towns--are Republican. Geographically, the Mass. map was mostly red last time around. Some towns went 80% for Gomez.

I have voted GOP for 46 yrs. I have put up signs in my yard. I have attended conventions. I have donated to individuals and to the GOP Party. Everyone that knows me knows I am a Conservative because I spout the cause and yet, here we are, a Nation lost. A Nation going under more and more every day. The GOP held all three branches for two years under Bush and yet, here we are today. The GOP winning means nothing unless they are true Conservatives.

If they do take the Senate, it will be by a narrow margin as Cook points out. Can they effectively hold it after the predictable defections or "compromise" of McCain, Graham, and a few other RINOs? If they should hold it, what will they do with it? Witness how the Dems have played them the past few times they were in charge. Numbers are meaningless until the Pubbies grow spines. Show us something by using the power you already have in the House. Defund Obamacare, and then we might get motivated.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

Goldwater was nicknamed “Mr. Conservative,” but now even liberals adore him. Robert F.

Goldwater was “neither mean-spirited nor racist,” wrote Kennedy; he challenged

A three-year study of how network news refers to “Easter” reveals that by a margin of 500-56, reports that mention the word or “Easter season” choose a secular path linking it to candy Peeps, frilly clothes and cocktails over Christ’s resurrection. “Instead of celebrating Christ´s rising from the dead, the networks have made it about ´egg-cellent Easter fashions,´ frilly Easter bonnets and pink martinis,” said a report from the conservative Media Research Center provided to Secrets on Good Friday. The study reviewed three years of news in the two weeks before Easter and found that about 89 percent of the references to

The building will dominate the skyline of the coastal town of Jeddah on the Red Sea.

Holder’s undermining of the

Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
