SurveyUSA poll in Kansas – Newt and Ron Paul most easily beatable by Barack Obama
On January 3, Wichita CBS affiliate KWCH commissioned a SurveyUSA poll among Kansas voters about the 2012 election. This was released on the same day as the Iowa caucus, and was before the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries. Two questions were asked to registered voters in Kansas (emphasis added): “Which Republican has the best chance to beat Barack Obama in the general election in November? Mitt Romney?

Video – Kansas is quietly helping ObamaCare, through Gov. Brownback’s $160 million federal Medicare grant
An important video to watch, from a recent Overland Park seminar sponsored by the Union of Patriots (their Facebook page is here). First, here is a speech by Rep. Charlotte O’Hara, the only legislator willing to publicly criticize a needless $160 million project by Sam Brownback that is deeply intertwined with ObamaCare. Overland Park Rep. O’Hara was removed from a health care committee by Speaker | Read More »
Bethlehem inn-keeper — Generous or greedy to lend stable to Mary and Joseph?
First, I would like to wish readers a Merry Christmas. Thanks to David Keating at the Club for Growth for first mentioning this recent economic newsletter from First Trust Portfolios, based in Wheaton, IL. The Bible story of the virgin birth is at the center of much of the holiday cheer at this time of the year. The book of Luke tells us Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem because Caesar Augustus decreed | Read More »
Friday night in KC, Saturday in Wichita: Free event on ObamaCare and immigration reform.
I encourage you to attend a free event this weekend, focusing on three important topics: ObamaCare, immigration reform, and tax reform. It’s Friday night in Overland Park, and Saturday in Wichita. No, Wichita is not like it’s portrayed in “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.” It’s co-sponsored by two Kansas City-area center-right groups: the Union of Patriots and FairTaxKC. I think you’ll find this event educational, even if you | Read More »
Newt: Tenacious N.
Seeing this picture of Newt Gingrich this morning at the National Journal made me realize that Newt looks a lot like Jack Black. It’s not a bad photo, to be fair. But he looks a lot like Jack Black. So, I’d like to ask RedState if we can start calling Speaker Gingrich Tenacious N. That’s all.
Scientist who cloned Dolly the sheep: Don’t destroy human embryos, but instead use our own skill cells
From CitizenLink: Ian Wilmut, best known as the scientist who led the research team that cloned Dolly the sheep in the 1990s, used to be a fan of cloning and human embryonic stem-cell research (hESCR) — but these days, he’s singing a different tune. In a Nov. 29 speech in California, Wilmut urged fellow scientists to invest their time on nonembryonic forms of stem-cell research — | Read More »
In Kansas, Newt Gingrich is losing to Obama 40% to 45%, according to SurveyUSA. In Kansas.
Poll from SurveyUSA, conducted Nov. 18-21, 2011. “Sure, it’s early, and yes, a lot will change, but in an preview of the 2012 Presidential election, cell phone voters (those without a home telephone, typically undercounted in opinion polls), vote sufficiently Democrat to keep Mitt Romney to just a single-digit lead over Barack Obama, and, for the moment, cause Obama to defeat Newt Gingrich.

Being “Republican” won’t be enough in 2012, particularly for state legislators. Rasmussen Generic Ballot: 41% Republican, 40% Democrat
On October 31, 2010 — the last Rasmussen Generic Congressional Ballot poll before the November 2, 2011 elections – a sizeable 51% of voters were planning on supporting the Republican candidate, and 39% of voters were planning to support the Democratic candidate.

Rush Limbaugh-Carrying, Otherwise Big Government KMBZ 980 Fires Program Director
I have trouble calling KMBZ 980 a “business.” Businesses want to make money, and I’m not sure KMBZ wants to. John Landsberg at Bottom Line Communications reports that KMBZ 980 AM’s Program Director Neil Larrimore was let go. KMBZ 980 has Rush Limbaugh on from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and is not worth listening to after that. I can’t comment on the morning programming, because I | Read More »
