State Senator Joni Ernst Wins GOP Iowa Primary Going Away … Faces Democrat Bruce Braley for Open Iowa Senate Seat
State Senator Joni Ernst wins Republican primary in Iowa, set to face Democrat Bruce Braley for US Senate race in pivotal battle in 2014 for the US Senate.
It did not take long last night after the polls closed in Iowa as the AP called the GOP US Senate primary for state senator Joni Ernst. With just 24% of precincts reporting, the AP made the call for Joni Ernst who had 53% of the vote, Conservative radio host Sam Clovis had 19%, businessman Mark Jacobs (R) had 17% and former U.S. Attorney Matt Whitaker (R) had 9%. However, by the time all the votes were counted Ernst would win the Iowa Republican senate primary by an even wider margin gaining 56.2% of the vote. Ernst easily cleared the 35 percent threshold necessary to avoid a convention nomination fight. Republican Joni Ernst will face Democrat Bruce Braley this November for the Iowa senate seat currently held by the retiring Democrat Sen. Tom Harkin.
Joni Ernst, who highlighted her ability to shoot guns and castrate hogs to overcome disinterest in a sleepy primary election, tonight racked up enough votes to become the first female GOP U.S. Senate nominee in Iowa history.
The Associated Press called the race shortly before 10 p.m.
The 43-year-old farmer’s daughter turned state senator and military commander eclipsed the 35 percent necessary to claim victory over her four competitors, including retired businessman Mark Jacobs, who tried to overpower the rest of the field by self-funding his campaign with millions from his own wealth.
Vote for Jodi Ernst and let her trim the pork in Washington, DC … its a simple choice for Iowa voters.
Washington is full of big spenders, let’s make them squeal
“This campaign will come down to a very simple choice: our shared Iowa values, versus Bruce Braley’s liberal Washington values,” Ernst said.
According to the statement, Ernst, a lieutenant colonel in the National Guard who served a tour in Iraq, will start a statewide tour on Wednesday alongside Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds. She’s due to report for National Guard duty once that tour ends, the statement says without giving an exact time-frame.

I BET DEMOCRATS AND THOSE WHO CAUCUS WITH THEM BET THEIR BOTTOM DOLLAR THERE WAS NO SUCH THING AS OBAMACARE …
Democrats and Indy liberals can’t run away from Obama’s signature piece of legislation fast enough. Now those who brought you Obamacare want to tell you there is no such thing as Obamacare. Nothing can be trusted what comes out of their mouths.
This morning on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Independent Senator Angus King from Maine, who caucuses with Democrats, stated that there was no such thing as Obamacare.This clown is actually trying to make it appear that it is the private insurance companies that are to blame and use their name. Trust me from personal first hand experience, HHS is dictating to all carriers every aspect of how these plans look, walk and talk.
Oh, only if that were true and we could dare to dream. However, sadly there is Obamacare and as we are reminded by Democrats, it is the law of the land. Make no mistake about it Sen. King, the Democrats that you align yourself with are solely responsible for this disastrous healthcare train wreck as it was rammed down the throats of all Americans by a strictly Democrat partisan vote in the Senate (60-40) and in the House. Not one Republican in either chamber voted for Obamacare. Democrats own it and Democrats will choke on it!
“Two points if I may, sir,” says Fox host Chris Wallace. “One, then why is Harry Reid saying he’s not going to allow a vote on the fixes? And, two, speak directly and briefly, because we’re about to run out of time, to Senator Barrasso’s comment that a lot of doctors, a lot of hospitals are being excluded by what Obamacare is offering.”
“Now, now that’s a big — There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can’t sign up for Obamacare. You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It’s private insurance,” said King.
Sen. John Barrasso (WY-R), also appearing on FNS, stated regarding the so-called 6 million sign-ups for Obamacare, that the “White House was cooking the books”. and claiming that the signup numbers are far different than the enrollment numbers versus those that have actually paid their first premium.
“I don’t think [six million] means anything, Chris,” he began. “I think they’re cooking the books on this. People want to know the answers to that. They also want to know, when this is all said and done, what kind of insurance will those actually have?”
“Will they be able to keep the doctor that they want?” he continued. “How much more is it going to cost them? And we know that the best cancer hospitals in the country want very little to do with people that actually buy this insurance on the Obamacare exchanges.
Hey Angus, don’t tell Barack Obama there is no such thing as Obamacare. Because that would mean he has done zero as president and remember, Barack does not mind calling it Obamacare because He cares.
Gallup: Wyoming, Mississippi and Idaho Most Conservative States in US … District of Columbia, Socialist Republic of Vermont and Taxachusettes Most Liberal
Who are the most RED and least RED states in America?
So who are the most conservative states in the United States? According to Gallup, Wyoming, Mississippi, Idaho, Utah and Montana are at the top of the list. Followed by Arkansas, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Alabama. Hmm, maybe the Volunteer state of Tennessee and those that claim to be conservative can explain how they have voted into office two less than conservative US Senators. Bob Corker is bad enough, but long time Sen. Lamar Alexander ranks rather low with a 53% on the Club for Growth’s scorecard. Tennessee has a chance to put their conservatism where their mouth is and vote in a true conservative candidate in 2014. Alexander is being primary challenged in the GOP primary by TN state Representative Joe Carr. It us time to get rid of establishment Republicans who claim they are conservative.
Also, how in the hell is Montana considered the 5th most conservative state and yet they currently have two Democrat US Sens. Jon Tester and the retiring Max Baucus. If Arkansas actually considers themselves a conservative state, they will replace Democrat Sen. Mark Pryor in 2014. Some of these states that claim they are conservative best stand up and be counted in 2014 and 2016, or forever be a minority.
Imagine that, the District of Columbia is the most liberal place in the United States, followed closely by the Socialist Republic of Vermont and Taxachusettes. Check out the states that are considered most liberal, all of them except Maine have two Democrat Senators and many of which are among the most liberal.

Just remember Colorado, not one Republican in the House or Senate voted for Obamacare …
More bad news for Americans courtesy of President Barack “you can keep your plan” Obama, Nancy “we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it” Pelosi and Dingy Harry. Fox 31 – Denver is reporting that the Colorado Department of Insurance is saying that nearly 250,000 Coloradans insurance policies will be canceled as a result of Obamacare. Colorado, you were a battle ground state in the 2012 presidential election and it was you who voted for Obama in 2012 and you really have no one to blame but yourself. You had been warned what would happen when Obamacare was implemented and you still bought the lie.
There are nearly 250,000 Coloradans whose health care policies have been or will be cancelled as a result of the Affordable Care Act, the state’s Dept. of Insurance announced on Wednesday.
Many of the policies are being cancelled because of stipulations under the new law that force insurers to cover certain things that weren’t covered under the old policies; other plans are being cancelled by insurers because they’re no longer cost-effective.
The cancellation letters sent out by the insurers must notify a consumer that the 2013 policy is cancelled, and must also highlight options for new coverage.
“Consumers who have questions about these letters or any questions about their health insurance policy should contact the Division,” said Commissioner of Insurance Marguerite Salazar. “While some plans are being cancelled, Coloradoans have many new options for 2014, due to the strength and competitiveness of our health insurance market.”

Do You Live in One of the 10 Freest States in the United States or One of the Least … North Dakota Named the Most Free
“Where Liberty Dwells, there is My Country” – Benjamin Franklin
The Blaze announces the 10 freest states and the 10 least … which one doe you live in? In order to calculate these scores, they weight public policies according to the estimated costs that government restrictions on freedom impose on their victims. The fill report can be read here, at “Freedom in the 50 States”. Many of the most free states are so because of low taxation and fiscal policy. North Dakota was named the most free, New York state comes in dead last.
- North Dakota: VIDEO
- South Dakota – VIDEO
- Tennessee – VIDEO
- New Hampshire – VIDEO
North Dakota is the freest state in the U.S., followed closely by South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire, and Oklahoma, according to the Mercatus Center at George Mason University’s third annual “Freedom in the 50 States.”
The 223-page report “scores all 50 states on their overall respect for individual freedom, and also on their respect for three dimensions of freedom considered separately: fiscal policy, regulatory policy, and personal freedom,” the study explains. Surprisingly, Texas did not make the top 10 and was ranked the 14th most free state.
The bottom 10 are 41. Mississippi, 42. West Virginia, 43. Vermont, 44. Maryland, 45. Illinois, 46. Rhode Island, 47. Hawaii, 48. New Jersey, 49. California and 50. New York.
The Compassionate Left … Michigan Union Thugs Destroy Hot Dog Vendor Clint Tarver’s Cart While Hurling Racist Epithets at Him
There will be blood … Racist Union Thugs.
The Michigan union thugs are not for all labor are now they. During the pro-union rally following the signing of the “right to work” legislation, union members destroyed hot dog vendor Clint Tarver’s cart. As reported at Michelle Malkin, Tarver was caught up in the violent chaos that erupted when union thugs attacked the Americans for Prosperity tent on the capitol grounds in East Lansing, MI during the right-to-work protest. Sadly, President Barack Obama has said nothing to condemn the union violence or the attack against Clint Tarver.
If this was not bad enough, that these thugs destroyed this man’s private property, but they also hurled racial slurs at him. They called him an “N” word and said he was on the wrong side. UNREAL. But it is the Tea Party who is branded racist. The Velvet Hammer reports that the thugs shouted “Uncle Tom” and “ni&&er” at Tarver.

The audio of the racial slurs were confirmed by Dana Loesch during an interview with Clint Tarver.
Donate HERE to help Clint Tarver get back on his feet. To date over $25,000 has been raised!!!
Just curious, where is President Barack Obama’s outrage over the violence from these union thugs? Where is Obama’s comments on the unions acting stupidly like he falsely accused the Cambridge, Mass police? Where is Obama’s comments that Clint Tarver could look like your
son uncle? How could anyone say that Obama is a president for all of the people?
