RUN ALLEN, RUN!!!
If you thought you have seen the last of Col. Allen West, think again. Former US Rep. Allen West (FL-R) was interviewed by NPR and hinted to what his future plans may be. Hinted, hmm … West’s hint was as subtle as a sledgehammer, “And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.” I would dare say that Allen West has more in common with Lincoln than does the current occupant of the White House.
MARTIN: So what’s next for you?
WEST: Look, you know, God closes a door so that he can open up greater doors. I will continue to, you know, stand up and fight for this country. That’s my goal. I have two daughters, 19 and 16, and I want to make sure that they grow up in a great America that provides them all the opportunities that it provided to their mother and father.
MARTIN: Congressman Allen West is completing his term in Congress. He was kind enough to join us from a House recording studio on Capitol Hill here in Washington, D.C.
WEST: And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.
MARTIN: Duly noted. Congressman West, thank you so much for speaking with us.
The Lonely Conservative is not the only one who hopes he runs. I am guessing the MSM and Democrats will still call the individuals racist for voting for West as well. I can’t wait for the MSM to embrace Allen West for President like they did Barack Obama.
LVRJ Rips Obama over Benghazi Terrorist Blunder, Lies and Cover Up … Obama unworthy commander-in-chief
No truer words have ever been spoken … the Las Vegas Review Journal reports that President Barack Obama is unworthy of being Commander in Chief.
The LVRJ blast Barack Obama for his handling of the Benghazi attacks that gave rise to the death of four Americans including US Ambassador Stevens. The Obama administration botched Benghazi before, during and after the attacks. We are always very critical of the MSM; however, we give kudos when it is deserved. It certainly is here.
The Obama administration sat by doing nothing for seven hours that night, ignoring calls to dispatch help from our bases in Italy, less than two hours away. It has spent the past seven weeks stretching the story out, engaging in misdirection and deception involving supposed indigenous outrage over an obscure anti-Muslim video, confident that with the aid of a docile press corps this infamous climax to four years of misguided foreign policy can be swept under the rug, at least until after Tuesday’s election.
I have to admit I am impressed by the LVRJ and their extremely truthful accounts of this story and Obama’s failure as Commander in Chief. However, the MSM has all but avoided it, namely the TV media. Instead of providing answers to things that he knows first hand, Obama has dodged the questions so the the outcome is done after the election. Is that what we need as a Commander in Chief, a president that would hold off on the truth of the death of 4 Americans for his own political gain?
Not only did the White House do nothing, there are now reports that a counterterrorism team ready to launch a rescue mission was ordered to stand down.
Read the full story HERE, it is an eye opener, especially coming from the MSM. Could this have an affect in Nevada voting? The end result is that Obama has lost the right yo be president.
Kentucky Democrat Primary: Barack Obama Defeats ‘Uncommitted’ Vote 57.9% to 42.1% … Loses 41% of Vote in Arkansas to John Wolf
4 in 10 vote against Obama in Kentucky and Arkansas Democrat primaries …
In a tighter than expected race in the Democrat primary in Kentucky, incumbent President Barack Obama won a tough fought battle against the “Uncommitted” vote, 57.9% to 42.1%. Seriously. Obama ran unopposed in the KY Democrat primary and lost 42.1% of the vote. It is not even like he was competing against a jailed felon, federal inmate No. 11593-051 Keith Judd, like in the West Virginia primary where Obama lost 41% of the vote.Talk about your protest votes against Obama.
Barack Obama struggles mightily tonight in the Kentucky and Arkansas Democrat primaries. If Obama’s battle against the ‘uncommitted’ vote was not bad enough in the Blue Grass state, Obama also lost 41% of the vote in Arkansas to Democrat challenger unknown John Wolf.
Four in ten Democratic voters chose someone other than President Obama on Tuesday in primaries in Arkansas and Kentucky.
In Arkansas, John Wolfe — a perennial, long-shot candidate — took 41 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary, with 71 percent of precincts reporting. Obama came in just under 60 percent. The Associated Press did not call the race for Obama until close to midnight.
And in Kentucky, 42 percent of Democrats chose “uncommitted” rather than cast a vote for the incumbent president. Obama took 58 percent, with 99 percent of precincts reporting.
Live Arkansas primary results see HERE.
I think it is safe to say that after Obama’s embarrassing primary results in West Virginia, Arkansas and Kentucky, do not look for Barack Obama to be visiting these states in the general election. Color the states Red, as well as Obama’s face after these humiliating primaries.
Hillary Clinton and her political brain trust must be kicking themselves that they did not challenge Obama in the Democrat primary. She would have been a shoe in to defeat Obama.
RUT-ROH … Imagine the embarrassment of Obama losing a primary to an unknown?
President Barack Obama might be having a Southwest commercial moment in the upcoming Arkansas primary and might just “Wanna Get Away”. According to a new poll of Arkansas Dems, Obama leads his unknown primary challenger, Tennessee lawyer John Wolfe, Jr., by a mere 7%. WOW. Just how embarrassing would it be for incumbent President Obama to lose to a complete unknown? The Weekly Standard interviewed Democrat primary challenger Wolfe who said, the poll results were “unbelievable” and said a defeat for Obama in the Arkansas primary would be “politically cataclysmic.” YA THINK!!! Heck, if an unknown actually finished within double digits of a sitting president in a primary is a big deal.
Obama is likely to experience a similar wave of discontent from Fourth District Democratic voters in Arkansas.
In our latest Talk Business-Hendrix College Poll, conducted last Thursday, May 10, 2012, 38% of Democratic primary voters in the Fourth say they’re casting ballots for John Wolfe, a Tennessee attorney who filed paperwork to qualify for the Arkansas Democratic primary.
Less than half — just 45% — say they presently support Obama.
45% – Barack Obama
38% – John Wolfe
17% – Undecided
As stated by Doug Ross, apparently Arkansas Democrats couldn’t find a convicted felon to run against Obama like they did in West Virginia. Classic! Recently, Obama struggled in the WV Democrat primary against Federal Inmate No. 11593-051 Keith Judd who garnered 41% of the vote.
More from the Weekly Standard’s interview with John Wolfe, Jr.
Wolfe predicted that the voters would move his way in the final days before the May 22 primary, despite his shoestring campaign budget. “There’s not been a single TV ad. There’s not been a single radio ad,” he said.
Wolfe is also competing against Obama in Texas’s May 29 primary.
Wolfe has criticized Obama for being too close to Wall Street and its interests (for example, Obama’s latest fundraiser with private equity lenders last night in New York City) and seeks to be a more principled Democrat than the 44th president.
Hillary Clinton was unavailable for comment as to why she never ran against Obama in the 2012 Democrat Primaries.
230,000 Unemployed Americans Losing Jobless Benefits Over Weekend as Obama Golfs & Fund Raises as First Gay President
Question: Who is out of touch? Answer: President Barack Obama.
230,000 unemployed workers lost their jobless benefits over the weekend in 27 states as President Barack Obama played golf with VP Joe Biden. Is it any reason why Obama and his reelection minions are playing the politics of distraction with contrived news stories like the false GOP war on woman and Obama, the first gay president?
More than 230,000 unemployed workers will lose their jobless benefits this weekend as portions of federal programs expire across several states.
All told, 409,300 long-term unemployed Americans in 27 states will have lost upward of 20 weeks of federal unemployment benefits by this past Saturday, even as the many state jobless rates remain high, according to a new analysis by the National Employment Law Project (NELP).
The latest batch of cuts affects 236,300 unemployed people in eight states — California (11%), Texas (7%) Pennsylvania (7.5%), Florida (9%), Illinois (8.8%) North Carolina (9.7%) Colorado (7.8%) and Connecticut (7.7%) — half of which have jobless rates above the 8.1 percent national average posted in April.
However, these grim jobs numbers do not stop Obama from his golfing and fund raising. Honestly America, we cannot afford to have Obama reelected in 2012.
Former President Bill Clinton called Barack Obama an “AMATEUR”. Well, if the shoe fits …
According to a new unauthorized biography of Barack Obama by Edward Klein, entitled “The Amateur,” Bill Clinton was reported to have said to his wife Hillary Clinton that Obama was an “amateur” and that she should quit her job as Secretary of State and run against him in the Democrat Presidential primaries. Also, Bill Clinton is reported to have stated that Obama “does not know how to be President” and is “incompetent”.
Bill Clinton explaining to Obama the A, B, C’s of being President …
Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims,
“The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama.
The title of Klein’s explosive, unauthorized bio of Obama, “The Amateur” (Regnery Publishing), was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism of the president, the author said.
“Barack Obama,” Bill Clinton said, according to book excerpts, “is an amateur.”
Clinton further went on to say that Barack Obama was incompetent. In the end, does any one really disagree with Bill Clinton at this point? There are many Democrats who begged Hillary to run against Obama in the Democrat primaries. Had Hillary Clinton challenged Obama, she would have won. Hell, a felon managed to get 41% of the vote in West VA while being incarcerated.
“The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating . . . You know better than Obama does,” Bill said.
Bill Clinton insisted he had “no relationship” with Obama and had been consulted more frequently by his presidential successor, George W. Bush.
Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.”
WOW … It is safe to say that Barack Obama need not campaign in West Virginia after last nights embarrassing Democrat Presidential primary. Now imagine if Hillary Clinton or any credible Democrat had challenged Obama in the Democrat primary … Obama would have lost.
Just how unpopular is Barack Obama in West Virginia? A federal inmate actually received 41% of the vote. YIKES! How’s that for some “Hope & Change”? Just how bad is it for an incumbent President when a felon gets 41% of the primary vote. UNREAL. What you will not see during the campaign season of 2012 is Barack Obama and current Democrat West Virginia US Senator Manchin doing any political events. Not if Manchin wants to retain his Senate seat.
Name: Keith Judd
Address: Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution, Texarkana, Texas
Known as: Inmate Number 11593-051
Education: Member of the Federation of Super Heroes, 1976-1982
Barack Obama, the rock start, the One, the Obamamessiah, the incumbent Democrat President managed to lose 10 counties and 41% of the vote to Federal Inmate No. 11593-051. That is correct sports fans, Barack Obama had a primary challenge in last night’s WVA Democrat primary from Keith Judd, a federal inmate. Laughter does not even begin to express these primary results.
In an embarrassment to President Obama, Federal Inmate No. 11593-051 – otherwise known as Keith Judd – won 10 counties and 41 percent of the vote in West Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary Tuesday.
Mr. Judd is incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas, where he is serving a 210-month sentence for extortion, according to The Charleston Gazette. Judd had paid the $2,500 filing fee and submitted a notarized “certificate of announcement” to appear on the ballot.
He is even qualified to have a delegate at the Democratic National Convention, because he won at least 15 percent of vote. However, no one has stepped forward to fill that role.
Inmate Keith Judd circulated his political standpoints to local media. They included opposing national health care reform on the grounds that it violates the 10th Amendment. Also, Obama’s war on the coal industry did him no favors in WV either.
There is embarrassing and then there is this. Inmate 11593-051 actually received enough percentage of the vote that he gained a delegate. Good grief!!!
Mitt Romney Has Big Clean Sweep in Tonight’s GOP Primaries … Wins CT, DE, NY, PA & RI … Former Mass. Governor Says “A Better America Begins Tonight”
Mitt Romney wins big, no huge, tonight in the GOP Primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode island. In the end, it was not even close. Romney thanks those in the five primary states he won this evening. The GOP primary is officially over. The Mittster gave a victory speech tonight that was full of optimism, a welcome change from the negative and divisive class warfare from Barack Obama.
“I see an America with a growing middle class, with rising standards of living,” Romney will say. “I see children even more successful than their parents — some successful even beyond their wildest dreams — and others congratulating them for their achievement, not attacking them for it.”
RHODE ISLAND: With 99% of the vote counted, Romney 63%, Paul 24%, Gingrich 6%.
PENNSYLVANIA: With 66% of the votes counted, Romney 56%, Paul 13%, Gingrich 11%. Some thought that a narrow Romney victory in PA would be embarrassing to Mitt seeing that Santorum had previously dropped out of the race. The pundits got that one wrong too.
NEW YORK: With 7% of the vote counted NY has been called for Romney … Romney 56%, Paul 16%, Gingrich 16%.
CONNECTICUT: With 65% of the votes counted, Romney 67%, Paul 14%, Gingrich 10%.
DELAWARE: With 98% of the vote counted, Romney wins huge in DE, a states that some so-called pundits actually thought Gingrich might win. Romney 57%, Gingrich 27%, Paul 10%.
UPDATE I: Mitt Romney nailed his speech tonight. Romney connected with so many Americans, whether they be Republicans, Democrats or Independents when he said … “Americans are tired of being tired.” BINGO!!!
Romney used the line of the late, great Ronald Reagan, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” – Romney sought to appeal to average Americans. Mitt Romney just wowed them with his speech in Manchester, NH after his impressive 5 state primary victory. For the first time since the outset of the GOP Primaries, Romney truly sounded Presidential, went after Obama’s failed agenda and offered a positive vision for the future.
UPDATE II: Mitt Romney’s Speech: “A Better America Begins Tonight”
Americans have always been eternal optimists. But over the last three and a half years, we have seen hopes and dreams diminished by false promises and weak leadership. Everywhere I go, Americans are tired of being tired, and many of those who are fortunate enough to have a job are working harder for less.
For every single mom who feels heartbroken when she has to explain to her kids that she needs to take a second job … for grandparents who can’t afford the gas to visit their grandchildren … for the mom and dad who never thought they’d be on food stamps … for the small business owner desperately cutting back just to keep the doors open one more month – to all of the thousands of good and decent Americans I’ve met who want nothing more than a better chance, a fighting chance, to all of you, I have a simple message: Hold on a little longer. A better America begins tonight.
Tonight is the start of a new campaign to unite every American who knows in their heart that we can do better! The last few years have been the best that Barack Obama can do, but it’s not the best America can do!
- It’s time for Gingrich to drop out and for the GOP to unify behind Romney

Putting the “Moon” in MOONBAT!
Democrat primary candidate Lee Whitnum calls Rep. Chris Murphy (D-CT) a whore during last nights debate for Connecticut’s open US Senate seat. Well, at least she did not call him a “SLUT”. However, what might have been more eye popping was her stance and comments regarding Israel. This loon went on to say that she wants the US to prosecute Jewish Americans who go to Israel and join the army and kill. Huh? Whitnum actually believes prosecuting our own American citizens “would solve anti-American sentiment world-wide”.
Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) was called a “whore” by a primary opponent during Thursday night’s debate for Connecticut’s open Senate seat.
Lee Whitnum, who is mounting her second bid for the Senate in Connecticut, blasted Murphy over his support for Israel, the New Haven Register reported.
“I’m dealing with a whore here who sells his soul to AIPAC, who will say anything for the job,” Whitnum said, referring to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
Whitnum said anti-American sentiment worldwide could be cured if the federal government were to prosecute U.S. settlers who “go to Israel and maim or kill in the Promised Land.” She also called for the elimination of U.S. aid to Israel.
As the Gateway Pundit states, as least she is honest regarding her position and feelings on Israel. Most Democrats try and hide their true feelings. As Jim says, with such venom towards Israel, Barack Obama probably has a spot for her in his Administration.
