With You 100% in the U.S. House

Dick Morris
Dick Morris

The election is five weeks from today. Just 35 days to determine which way the nation will go.

Will Republicans win the 40 seats needed for a majority in the House?

Dick Morris says no … that number is too low. He expects at least 54, but sees the possibility of getting 100. Lest that seem like some naive, fairy tale view, he explains why this is possible.

For all the talk about polls, there is poll data from only 80 races. Of those, 54 show the GOP candidate in districts currently held by Democrats. Another 19 seats have incumbent Democrats who are below 50% and who are just a few points ahead of their Republican challengers. That totals  73  seats and Morris’ law says undecideds always break against the incumbent. Continue reading “With You 100% in the U.S. House”

Concord Grapes of Wrath

“In November, many freedom loving Americans (and their candidates) will be going to a gunfight armed only with their pocket knives.”

This description of the November 2 election is figurative, not literal. The author, at www.redstate.com, riffs off Barack Obama’s remark in his ’08 campaign, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” In “Can a Leaderless Army Defeat the Leviathan of the Left,” the report asks an incisive question. Up against George Soros, the liberal media, Hollywood and unions, does the little conservative guy stand a chance of victory?

Three weeks ago the Concord Project was launched to make this possible.  Their belief is that “battles will be fought at the ballot box, the polls and on the streets with people getting out the vote.” And that’s their mission.

The website, www.concordproject.org, provides a wealth of ideas and plans for turning citizens into active, energized vote getters. It details how with videos and articles such as “Building a GOTV (get out the vote) Army,” “Five Tasks of any Activist,” “A Checklist for GOTV,” “It’s Easy to Go Door to Door.”

In addition, it wants to help in coordinating GOTV events, building voter blocs, working with campaigns and making plans to help get voters to the polls.

You can sign up for Twitter, email updates and facebook.

Looks like a handy tool for every day citizens to become Davids against the liberal Goliaths.

Steele Sports Bergmann Sticker

Michael Steele

Michael Steele Speaks in Southaven, MS.

From the Bergman Campaign: RNC National Chairman Michael Steele joined Charlotte Bergmann (candidate for the 9th Cong. District in Tennessee) in Southaven, MS, on his “Fire Pelosi!” Bus Tour this past week.  The tour, which began Sept. 15 in Washington, is visiting more than 100 cities and towns in the 48 contiguous states up until Nov. 2 — Election Day — in an effort to oust Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Economy Still Doesn’t Suit J. A. Banks

Empty SuitAn earlier post detailed a non-scientific approach to evaluating our economy. There seems to be a correlation between how it’s going with how much Joseph A. Banks likes to give away in their clothing specials.

When the recession first hit, Banks did the typical buy one suit, get one free. It escalated the giveaways as the crisis deepened.

Today’s report finds the company telling me that if I buy a sport coat I will get two pants and two sport shirts free.

A pretty good deal for the customer, but a bad indicator of how deeply retail sales are still hurting. To add to the desperation, they had to announce it four times!

Not a good sign for Main Street.

Sentencing Delayed in Palin Email Theft

The incident where David Kernell was accused of hacking into Sarah Palin’s email and releasing it during the presidential race in 2008 has gone under the radar.

However, Kernell was found guilty in April 2010 of obstruction of justice and unauthorized access to a computer. Sentencing was schedule for late September. It has been rescheduled to October 29. U.S. District Judge Thomas Phillips refused to throw out the convictions, but Kernell’s lawyer is appealing the case to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. Kernell could face 15 to 21 months in prision.

Kernell is the son of state representative Mike Kernell, D-Memphis, who is up for election Nov. 2. He does have a Republican opponent. Tim Cook is running for the District 73 seat Kernell has held for 36 years. The Democrat is a friend to the more taxes faction and has pushed for a state income tax.

It’s a shame that Cook hasn’t run more aggressively for this seat. The district, which includes parts of East Memphis, has a good number of Republicans who, if this case is called to their attention, would remember the harm done to the Palin family and be dissuaded for voting for Kernell.

The No Justice Dept.

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly has been at the forefront of the story of voter intimidation occurring in 2008.

Members of the Black Panther Party stood in front of a poll in Philadelphia, dressed in military gear, one brandishing a nightstick. It was videotaped and a lawsuit was filed weeks before Barack Obama took office. However, after the inauguration, the Department of Justice more or less dropped the case. One of the department’s lawyers, J. Christian Adams, turned whistle blower and accused his colleagues of protecting only minority rights.

Adams appeared on Kelly’s Fox News show this summer, detailing his charges and saying others would substantiate his words. One of his bosses, Christopher Coates, a highly respected voting rights official, stepped forward this morning.

Since many people may have missed this, here is Kelly’s report this afternoon:

“Dramatic testimony this morning from a current, sitting attorney at the Department of Justice. Testimony given under oath that says the Voting Rights Division at the Department of Justice is no longer in the business of justice for all. After 12 months – almost – of being ordered by his bosses at the DOJ to ignore lawful subpoenas that had been served upon him, long time DOJ attorney Christopher Coates today defied orders from his bosses and made some powerful and stunning allegations against his employer, claiming the full protection of the whistle blower statute. In testimony before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights about a voter intimidation case from 2008, Coates offered evidence under oath that race and politics are driving decisions at the Dept. of Justice.”

At the hearing today, Coates said about the previous inquiries that “(one of the officials) Ms. Fernandez responded (to the case) by telling the gathering that the Obama administration was only interested in bringing traditional types of Section 2 cases that would provide equality for racial and language minority voters. And then she went on to say that this is what we are all about or words to that effect.”

According to Ms. Kelly, “Chris Coates is testifying that there is a mandate within the department of Justice not to enforce the voting rights laws for the benefit of white victims.”

Noting that Christopher Coates did not want to testify at first, reporter Steve Centani calls it “some damning testimony of a culture of injustice within the DOJ. As Coates puts it there is a ‘long term hostility to race neutral enforcement of the voting act. That is, the policy is the unwritten, but sometimes spoken policy,’ made very clear to him, that minorities will be protected when it comes to voting rights but not necessarily whites. All the emphasis, all the focus should go to minorities. That’s the main thrust of what he said today. He made some very strong allegations against some of the people who have this belief in the department who have now risen to higher positions in the Obama administration and who are in control here.”

Centani continues that Coates goes on to say, “I don’t think it exists to the same degree to every employee in the voting section, but generally there has been that air of hostility that has been the point of view of major civil rights groups.”

The Department of Justice, according to Kelly, has denied the allegations. However, she notes that Coates has been moved to South Carolina and is no longer in charge of the voting rights division. He stepped forward because he had “had enough.”

Kudos to Fox News for staying on the story. Will other news outlets pick up something that is a direct threat to democracy – the right to vote for all people without intimidation? Let’s hope so.
