    Jason Carter BREAKING THE LAW

    Jason Carter BREAKING THE LAW

    No, we won’t get into that time he was arrested (!!). No, Jason Carter is now breaking the law. He has a Florida tag on his bus. So he’d rather cover it up than have the Florida tag be seen. You can’t do that!

    Jason Carter is Outsourcing

    Jason Carter is Outsourcing

    Jason Carter is on his bus tour as the Democrats continue to pound Republican David Perdue on outsourcing. A sharp eye caught this. Jason Carter outsourced his bus demands to Florida. That’s a Florida license plate on his bus driving through Georgia.

    When I Survey

    When I Survey

    We stand a week from the final midterm election of Barack Obama’s Presidential career. When I survey the field I do not see a wave election for the GOP. I never have seen a wave in the polling, at least not at the national level. At the local level, I think we will see a lot of what we saw in 2010. It will be | Read More »

    YOU MUST GIVE MONEY NOW!!

    Zach Dasher is my guy in Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District. He should be your guy too. He’s running against the congressman who had the affair and has decided not to resign. Zach is awesome. He has an awesome commercial. But he needs money to keep it on the air. Watch it here, then pour forth all the money you can into his campaign coffers that | Read More »

    How Times Change in Maine

    Republican Governor Paul LePage of Maine has opened up a 10 point lead. Less than a year ago, friends of mine were freaked out that LePage was going to lose Maine. They thought he was too harsh with the media and seemed to relish being a bully. Liberals alike were telling me that Paul LePage was toast. After getting their clocks cleaned by the Republican | Read More »

    It Never Was the Democrats’ Base

    It Never Was the Democrats' Base

    Since Election Night of 2012, I have been saying this. I am a broken record on it. The Democrats’ ultimate election problem is that they have confused Barack Obama’s base for their base. They are not the same and the late polling is showing it. Suddenly, Republicans are finding more seats in play for the House. Additionally, Senate seats are now breaking the GOP’s way. | Read More »

    The Love Affair With Obamacare

    The Love Affair With Obamacare

    Americans love Obamacare, the New York Times propagandizes today. It’s not the only media outfit running with this story today, suggesting a coordinated campaign effort a week before the election. According to the New York Times, it is too soon to tell if Obamacare is working, except with the young. There, Obamacare seems to be working. But, here’s the kicker. With the Obama Administration claiming | Read More »

    The Last Week

    The Last Week

    This is, thankfully, the final week in the run up to the general election. The day after, I’ll have a post-election call. You can sign up for it here. This week, the Democrats are going to pull out all the stops. In North Carolina, they’re focusing on Trayvon Martin to scare black voters. In Georgia, they are focused on Ferguson for the same thing.

    The Wild Variations

    I have noticed some wild variations in polling in places like South Dakota, Kentucky, and Georgia. Places that should not be in play seem to be in play. What makes it so bizarre is that in these states President Obama remains deeply unpopular. The national polling should flow down into state level polling, but it does not seem to be. In particular, the Georgia polling | Read More »

    What the Heck is Happening in Georgia?

    Freak out!!!!!! At least that seems to be the GOP’s reaction to the polling in Georgia. Relax people. We are going into overtime for sure in the Senate race. That runoff will be in 2015. Georgians will have to endure two of the smuggest politicians ever to run for office for two more month. But hey! For those of us with radio shows in Atlanta, | Read More »

    This is Horrifying

    This is Horrifying

    As you know by now, ISIS was able to capture a military shipment dropped into the Syrian/Iraq area that was meant for Kurds. The shipment of weapons and supplies for the Kurds was intended for use combatting ISIS. What is so horrifying about all this is why the Department of Defense says ISIS capturing the pallet of supplies is “not significant.” Here is Jim Sciutto | Read More »

    Moral Equivalence

    I noted last night that we do not hear of new converts to Christianity going on to kill, behead, or blow themselves up. More often, though, we are finding in the relativistic, amoral modern West that new recruits to Islam are doing just that. A convert in Oklahoma beheaded a lady. In the last two days various new converts to Islam in Canada have engaged | Read More »

    With 12 Days to Go, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Wants Republican Leaders to Oppose Religious Liberty

    With 12 Days to Go, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Wants Republican Leaders to Oppose Religious Liberty

    Georgia is facing a very close election. Public polling has the Democrat leading the Republican for the U.S. Senate seat. The Republican Governor is neck and neck with Jimmy Carter’s grandson. And Georgia’s Chamber of Commerce today wants Georgia’s Republicans to publicly stand against Hobby Lobby, the Little Sisters of the Poor, and religious liberty in general. Many of the state’s Republican leaders will do | Read More »

    It’s Like a Gang Land Initiation

    It's Like a Gang Land Initiation

    The man who beheaded that lady in Oklahoma is a recent convert to Islam. The Canadians suffered a terrorist attack today by a recent convert to Islam. The day before they had another attack by a recent convert of Islam. I don’t remember ever hearing about a recent convert to Christianity shooting up a government building, killing a soldier, or beheading anyone. But if you | Read More »

    Polling Against the President and Other Trends

    I spent a great deal of time on all the national polling trends against the President. More and more I’m beginning to believe something is off with a lot of state level polling.
