EVERYONE KNOWS YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO TALK POLITICS AT THE DINNER TABLE, BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE WHO BREAKS THE CARDINAL RULE …
So what does one do when a progressive, lib decides to ruin Thanksgiving Day and brings up their liberal talking points and how Barack Obama is God’s gift to humanity? My first thought is lock them in the closet, maybe no one will miss them. Seriously, the answer is ignore them, change the story to puppies and kittens, because everyone has an opinion on their pet. But remember, your young liberal relative probably doesn’t have a job and has been preparing for this as they had previously received their Obama agenda talking points via the DNC. Your only hope is that your liberal relative stayed up all night playing video games the night before and might be drowsy. But if ignoring the twerp doesn’t work and he/she keeps leaving the kids table to annoy with their moronic liberal talking points, you can always turn to an article from the Washington Free Beacon, ‘How to Talk to Your Pansy Marxist Nephew at Thanksgiving.’
Legal Insurrection has a multitude of ideas and examples of how not to discuss talk turkey, when you could be eating it.
Watch below, Dana Perino’s do’s and don’ts of talking politics at Thanksgiving. I think Dana’s best bit of advice is to start drinking early . That has always served me well in the past in dealing with my LEFT-wing, lunatic brother in law. Also, don’t be emotional and don’t let your arguments get to the point of throwing food.
Just curious Democrats, who is inciting fear? However, putting your head in the sand and pretending that RADICAL ISLAM is not at war with America is what brought us 9-11.
Are you kidding me, is this ad where Democrats are claiming GOP candidates are inciting fear from the DNC or the Onion? Democrats are refusing to call Islamists and radical jihadists who want to kill Americans and Westerners, the radical Islamist that they are? REALLY? Are these people stuck on stupid? What part of “radical” Islam don’t the Liberals quite get? Just how out of touch are Democrats, Americans, both Republicans Democrats and Independents are overwhelmingly in favor of using “radical Islam”.
This was meant to be an attack ad by Democrats but it plays more like a skit on SNL.
No one is saying all Muslims or Islam, they are classifying them as radical Islam. What might be even more comical is that they are using George W. Bush, the individual who said you are either with us or against us and coined the phrase axis of evil, to try and prove their liberal talking point. Seriously, the Democrats are praising George W. Bush? But I thought he was blamed by Obama and Democrats for all the evils of the world? This is truly pathetic. After bashing GWB for years, now as the Gateway Pundit opines, Democrats want Republicans to be more like him. You just can’t make this stuff up. Liberalism truly may just actually be a disease with no cure. If you can’t even name the enemy, how in the hell could anyone even think you are capable of defeating them?
Of course Democrats have no problem going after and inciting fear and saying they they are at war with Republicans, Conservatives and the Tea Party. Then again, who was it that backed the KKK?
As stated at BPR, The ad was roundly ridiculed as “tone-deaf,” “insulting to the American voter’s intelligence” and “just plain stupid” by conservative blogger Alex Griswold. Atlanta radio host and RedState editor Erick Erickson pleaded with the Democrats to “run this ad over and over with a side of gun control ads.”
Sorry GWB, Islam is not Peace, you better read the Koran.
Rasmussen Reports: Voters Say to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Democrats … Yes, We Are at War with Radical Islam
BARACK OBAMA, HILLARY CLINTON AND DEMOCRATS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE TERRORISM ISSUE WITH WE THE PEOPLE …
It would appear that “We the People” are fed up with Obama, Clinton and Democrats telling them that they are racists, bigots and Islamophobes when it comes to the war on terror against radical Islam. According to a recent Rasmussen Report poll, 60% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States is at war with radical Islamic terrorism and just 24% share the president’s position and disagree. This is rather interesting heading into a presidential election in 2016 as Obama and Democrats refuse to use the term “radical Islam” for fear of hurting the feelings of Muslims. But as BPR opines, its not just Republicans voters who feel this way, 56% of Democrats believe America is at war with radical Islamic terrorism and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
ISIS and terrorism under Obama isn’t going away any time soon as Barack Obama refuses to take the issue seriously which means that this will be a huge campaign issue in 2016 and the Democrats are not even close to being on the right side of the issue with the American people.
President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other senior Democrats refuse to say America is at war with “radical Islamic terrorism” for fear of insulting all Muslims, but voters beg to disagree.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 60% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States is at war with radical Islamic terrorism. Just 24% share the president’s position and disagree. Sixteen percent (16%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Even 56% of Democrats believe America is at war with radical Islamic terrorism, a view shared by 70% of Republicans and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
A staggering 92% of all voters now regard radical Islamic terrorism as a serious threat to the United States. This includes 73% who say it is a Very Serious one, up 23 points from 50% in October of last year.
Voters are also more reluctant now to agree with Obama that the radical Islamic State group (ISIS) which masterminded the massacres in Paris last weekend is not a reflection of Islam itself. A plurality (46%) still thinks the president is right when he says ISIS does not represent true Islamic beliefs. But that’s down noticeably from 58% who felt that way in February after the president gave a speech equating the atrocities committed by ISIS with past sins of Christianity. Thirty-five percent (35%) now believe ISIS does represent Islamic beliefs. One-in-five voters (19%) are not sure.

HUH? … New McClatchy-Marist Poll, Socialist Bernie Sanders Has landslide Margans over both Donald Trump & Jeb Bush
IF THIS IS REALLY TRUE … THIS COUNTRY IS FINISHED.
As reported at The Hill, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate and self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41 and also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.
I, personally, do not believe Sanders would win any such match up, but this country elected Obama twice so who knows. Also, it almost seems impossible that Sanders is even going to defeat Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Primaries. But seriously folks, if this is truly what voters believe, then the greatest social, political experiment in democracy known as the United States of America is over.
In a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41. In the McClatchy poll, Sanders also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.
The huge Sanders advantage over Trump is not new. In the last four match-up polls between them reported by Real Clear Politics, Sanders defeated Trump by margins of 12, 9, 9 and 2 percentage points.
The huge Sanders advantage over Bush is new. In previous match-ups, the polling showed Sanders and Bush running virtually even, with Bush holding a 1-point lead over Sanders in most of the polls. Future polls will be needed to test whether the huge Sanders lead over Bush in the McClatchy poll will be repeated in future polling or whether the McClatchy poll is an outlier.
It is shocking that the data suggests that Sanders has a lead over Trump that could be so huge that he would win a landslide victory in the presidential campaign, with margins that would almost certainly lead Democrats to regain control of the Senate and could help Democrats regain control of the House of Representative — if, of course, the three polls that show Sanders beating Trump by 9 to 12 points reflect final voting in the presidential election.
Joe Biden Not Running for President in 2016, But Looks Like He is Still the Democrat’s Insurance Policy
BIDEN NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT FOR 2016 …
Yesterday Vice President Joe Biden announced that he was not going to run for the Democrat nomination to be president of the United States. Biden made his announcement in the Rose Garden with his wife, Jill, and Obama standing beside him. The continued delay in a decision by Biden all but sealed his final decision. To be honest, it never seemed like Biden ever wanted to run but was more a less just a fallback insurance policy if candidate Hillary Clinton crashed and burned. That could still happen. There is two things here that are glaring for Democrats. One, are you telling me that there is no one in the Democrat party of any substance to run for President? Look at the field, basically there is Clinton and a self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. That’s it! Second, did any one think that 72 year old crazy Uncle Joe was the answer? Joe Biden is a walking gaffe and would represent an Obama third term.
I was this close to saying yes …
It says a lot about US politics that it was lack of time that apparently convinced Joe Biden against launching a White House bid. His announcement came 101 days before the Iowa caucus — the first contest in America’s primary calendar — and more than a year before the presidential election. Mr Biden conveyed his decision a few hours after Canada finished its longest ever general election, which took all of 78 days.
Yet in the US context, Mr Biden’s decision is entirely rational. Raising money — particularly enough to compete with a machine as well-oiled as Hillary Clinton’s — takes time. So does grieving (Mr Biden’s son, Beau, died of brain cancer in May). So too does finding good operatives to build ground games in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada and beyond. It also takes energy. At 72, would Mr Biden have had the vim to race around the country raising money while carrying out his vice-presidential duties? In other circumstances, perhaps. But the prospect looks exhausting if Mrs Clinton is your full-time opponent.
Yet it is also hard to believe Mr Biden was not swayed by Mrs Clinton’s robust performance in the Democratic debate last week. The vice-president set himself up as an insurance policy against the implosion of Mrs Clinton’s campaign. As her numbers fell during the summer amid the drip-drip of leaks and allegations about her private email account, the Biden option looked ever more enticing to senior Democrats. A bad first debate would have reinforced doubts about Mrs Clinton’s lacklustre showing on the campaign trail.
How convenient for Barack Obama that he now does not have to make a choice for an endorsement between Biden and Clinton. I will say it again, what a lack of talent that Democrats have on their bench for voters to choose from.

Democrat Party Presidential Debate Held in Las Vegas, NV … Really, Is This the Best the Democrats Have to Offer?
THE FAB FIVE …
The Democrat Party Presidential debate was held in Las Vegas, NV last night moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Honestly, it was literally unwatchable. Forget the fact that CNN was in the tank for these Democrat candidates, forget the fact that the socialist and only person within striking distance gave Hillary Clinton a pass on her email/server scandal, forget the fact that all of these Libs would bankrupt an already in debt America with their free-give away plans … Have you really taken a look at these candidates?
Seriously, as I watched the debate last night and looked over the stage of Democrat presidential primary candidates all I could think of was … THAT’S IT? This is the best and the brightest that the Donkey party has to offer America? Lincoln Chafee and O’Malley have no business even being on the stage. At times I think Chafee had no idea if he was in Las Vegas or Providence, RI. Jim Webb looked like he was in a time warp and should have been in a 1950′s debate as his message and military career is completely lost on today’s far Left of center Democrat party. Then there is the 73 year old Socialist Bernie Sanders who comes off as just a lunatic. Really, a major political party has a socialist running for president? Finally, we have the scandal plagued Hillary Clinton. Folks, if Hillary Clinton can not defeat these grade D politicians, she is then completely useless. This is the equivalent of an NFL team playing a high-school team and the announcers actually trying to make you believe the match will actually be a close game.
To make things even more pathetic, all we hear is that crazy uncle Joe Biden is the savior for the Democrats. Imagine Biden with all his gaffes being your secret weapon. Note to Democrats and the MSM, after watching that display last night, you can no longer make fun of Donald Trump and the GOP candidates.
NBC/WSJ Poll: Donald Trump & Ben Carson Lead GOP Race … Hillary Clinton Loses Ground to Bernie Sanders
THE GOP OUTSIDERS LEAD THE PRESIDENTIAL POLLS …
A new NBC/WSJ poll has some interesting trends on both sides of the aisle. On the Republican side, 3 of the 4 leaders of the pack are political outsiders. The poll has Donald Trump at number one with 21%, Ben Carson a close second with 20% and Carly Fiorino and Sen. Marco Rubio with 11%. So why has Ben Carson closed the gap on The Donald? Could it possibly be as opined by Pamela Gellar that, “the emperor has no clothes, and Carson was the only one brave enough to say it, to violate the sharia (‘do not criticize Islam’).” Of course it was Donald Trump who brought the issue of illegals to the political conversation. For some reason establishment candidates have an issue in discussing and taking a stand on the issues that matter to “We the People”.
With the Democrats, scandal plagued Hillary Clinton still leads socialist Bernie Sanders, bit only by a 7% with yet to announce Joe Biden in the race. As Clinton poll numbers tank, she was forced to take to the Sunday talk shows and try to tell the American people that she has been transparent. LOL!!! However, if and when Biden ever does announce his presidential run, the Democrat polls will completely have a shake up with most likely Biden being on top. Imagine that, crazy uncle Joe Biden is the savior of the party.
Donald Trump and Ben Carson are running neck and neck in the national Republican presidential horserace, while Carly Fiorina is now tied for third place with Marco Rubio, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
And on the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton has lost ground to Bernie Sanders — she leads him by just seven points with Joe Biden in the race, and 15 points without the vice president. That’s down from Clinton’s 34-point lead over Sanders in July and her whopping 60-point lead in June.
In the GOP race, Trump is the first choice of 21 percent of Republican primary voters — followed by Carson at 20 percent and Rubio and Fiorina tied at 11 percent each.

BERN BABY, BERN … WOW … SANDERS LEADS CLINTON BY 16 POINTS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE!!!
According to a recent CNN/WMUR poll, self-proclaimed Socialist Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton 46% to 30% in the Granite state. SANDERS HAS A 16 PERCENTAGE POINT LEAD, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I know it is early, but WOW!!! Clinton’s poll numbers continue to tank amid her email/private server scandal. As the PJ Tatler opines, Hillary Clinton is not even winning woman in New Hampshire. I would appear that the Hillary Clinton is not a sure bet to be the Democrat nominee and its only a matter of time before Joe Biden announced his presidential run so that the Donkey party does not have a 74 year old socialist representing them in a general presidential election in 2016.
Full poll results can be seen HERE.
Sanders has the backing of nearly half of those who say they plan to vote in the first-in-the-nation Democratic primary next year — 46% support him — while just 30% say they back Clinton. Another 14% say they would support Biden, 2% former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, 1% former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, and less than half of 1% back former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee or Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig.
Clinton trails Sanders across most demographic groups, with broad gender and ideology divides bolstering Sanders’ run. He holds 56% of male Democratic voters compared with just 20% who back her, while the two are much closer among women, 39% back Sanders, 37% Clinton. Likewise, Sanders holds a 56% to 30% lead among liberals, versus a 37% to 31% race among moderates.
NO HILLARY, WHAT YOU DID WAS A CRIME AND YOU SHOULD BE JAILED FOR IT …
In an interview with the Associated Press during a Labor Day campaign swing through Iowa, Hillary Clinton remained unapologetic regarding the use of her private emails and server while she conducted work as the Secretary of State. She claimed “what I did was allowed” and that this was nothing more than a “distraction.” REALLY, so the feds investigate things that are allowed and distractions? NO, WHAT YOU DID WAS A CRIME. Also, her drop in the polls is a direct result of her scandals. Hillary also said that she plans to reintroduce herself to the American people. How does that go Hillary, no my name isn’t Hillary Rob ‘em Clinton and I am not a complete lying sack of garbage? Something like that? She cannot even admit the truth that her campaign has been hurt be the email/server scandal. How else would you explain that self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders now leads her in New Hampshire and when voters are asked what words best describes Hillary Clinton, they say liar.
Sorry, this woman belongs in leg-irons, not the presidency.
Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday she does not need to apologize for using a private email account and server while at the State Department because “what I did was allowed.”
In an interview with The Associated Press during a Labor Day campaign swing through Iowa, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination also said the lingering questions about her email practices while serving as President Barack Obama’s first secretary of state have not damaged her campaign.
“Not at all. It’s a distraction, certainly,” Clinton said. “But it hasn’t in any way affected the plan for our campaign, the efforts we’re making to organize here in Iowa and elsewhere in the country. And I still feel very confident about the organization and the message that my campaign is putting out.”
Yet even in calling the inquiry into how she used email as the nation’s top diplomat a distraction, Clinton played down how it has affected her personally as a candidate.
“As the person who has been at the center of it, not very much,” Clinton said. “I have worked really hard this summer, sticking to my game plan about how I wanted to sort of reintroduce myself to the American people.”
As she has often said in recent weeks, Clinton told AP it would have been a “better choice” for her to use separate email accounts for her personal and public business. “I’ve also tried to not only take responsibility, because it was my decision, but to be as transparent as possible,” Clinton said.
Part of that effort, Clinton said, is answering any questions about her email “in as many different settings as I can.” She noted she has sought for nearly a year to testify before Congress about the issue, and that she is now slated to do so in October.
The one-on-one interview with AP was the second for Clinton in the past four days. On Friday, she did not apologize for using a private email system when asked directly by NBC, “Are you sorry?” Asked Monday by the AP why she won’t directly apologize, Clinton said: “What I did was allowed. It was allowed by the State Department. The State Department has confirmed that.
“I did not send or receive any information marked classified,” Clinton said. “I take the responsibilities of handling classified materials very seriously and did so.”
Clinton’s efforts to address the email issue comes as her chief rival for the Democratic nomination, independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, exits the summer surging in still-quite-early public opinion polls and drawing massive crowds to his rallies and events.
If Hillary Clinton was a Republican the MSM would be calling for her to be put in the stocks.
