Des Moines Register’s Iowa Poll: Republican Joni Ernst Leads Democrat Bruce Braley 44% to 38%

Des Moines Register’s new poll numbers are making Democrat Senate candidate  Bruce Braley squeal like a pig …

The Republican party needs a net pick up of six US Senate seats in the 2014 midterm elections. It appears now that they may have many different ways to gain that number, including a pick up in Iowa. The latest Des Moines Register Iowa poll has Republican Joni Ernst leading Democrat  Bruce Braley 44% to 38%. How bad is it for the Democrats and Braley in Iowa, Braley is not even winning his home district. Also, 2/3 of likely voters believe it is a problem that he missed a large percentage of Veterans Affairs Committee meetings in the U.S. House and 59% think his role in crafting Obamacare is a problem. Braley is also polling poorly with rural voters as only 15% support him compared with 58% for Ernst.

The Democratic U.S. Senate candidate is 6 points behind his GOP rival, Joni Ernst, according to The Des Moines Register’s new Iowa Poll of likely voters.

Ernst leads 44 percent to 38 percent in a race that has for months been considered deadlocked. She leads nearly 4-1 with rural voters, and is up double digits with independents.

“Very interesting, and good news not just for Ernst but also for the GOP’s chances of taking the U.S. Senate,” said national political prognosticator Larry Sabato of “Sabato’s Crystal Ball.”

Just seven months ago, political analysts considered Braley almost a shoo-in for a seat held for 30 years by liberal Democrat Tom Harkin.

Oh the Irony: 42 Year Old Omar J. Gonzalez Arrested by Secret Service Inside White House … Scaled the White House Fence (VIDEO)

OK, WHO SEES THE IRONY IN AN INDIVIDUAL WITH A HISPANIC LAST NAME SCALING A FENCE AND BEING ARRESTED?

42 year old Omar J. Gonzalez of Copperas Cove, Texas was arrested Friday night after he climbed over the White House fence and made it through the North Portico doors of the White House. The White House staff members were evacuated; however, the Obama family were not at home. President Obama and his daughters had left via helicopter for the presidential retreat at Camp David, MD, just minutes before the incident. Following Gonzalez’s apprehension, he was taken to George Washington Medical Center for a medical evaluation.

Just curious, why was he arrested, why was this considered a crime? Isn’t this just a microcosm of our Southern border and the fence jumping that occurs every day? For Barack Obama and his administration, the illegals coming into the United States by scaling the Mexico-US border fence are not committing any crime. Barack Obama does not believe in border security, so why does he believe in security for the White House? Oh that’s right, that is different. For illegals who “illegally” scale a fence and cross into America get amnesty, but scale the White House fence and you get arrested.

A Texas man who scaled the White House fence made it through the North Portico doors on Friday night before being apprehended, the Secret Service said.

The intruder, Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, was arrested just inside the doors and taken to George Washington University Hospital after complaining of chest pains, said Ed Donovan, a Secret Service spokesman.

None of the Obamas were home when the security breach occurred about 7:20 p.m., but White House staff members were evacuated as a precaution, officials said. President Obama and his daughters had left for the presidential retreat at Camp David, Md., just minutes before the incident.

Mr. Gonzalez, of Copperas Cove, Tex., was not armed and was not carrying a bag or a backpack when officials spotted him jumping the fence on the Pennsylvania Avenue side, Mr. Donovan said. He ignored several calls for him to stop as officers gave chase.

No shots were fired and the White House guard dogs were not called out to stop him.

Of course then their is the other metaphor that this incident presents, if Obama can’t protect the White House from a 42 year old man, how is he going to protect America against terrorism and ISIS?

UNBELIEVABLE … College Students at George Mason University Sign Petition in Support of ISIS (VIDEO)

Just when you thought American college kids could not get any more ignorant … They’re parents must be so proud.

Who would be dumb enough to sign a petition in support of ISIS … From MRC TV, courtesy of CNS News comes the following VIDEO that just makes one shake their head in disbelief. Student after clueless student walked up to the individual with the petition to support ISIS and they signed it. Media Research Center’s Dan Joseph was able to get 11 people to sign the petition. The only saving grace were two guys, one wearing a hockey jersey who stated, “you should be ashamed to even live in this country” and the other wearing tan shorts and shades who went on a tirade regarding the ignorant individuals that would sign such a petition. KUDOS to both of you.

Maybe one of the most head scratching exchange was when the petitioner said, “war is not the answer”. The response from the backpack wearing student, “No it’s not”. Then he says, “beadings are not the answer either” The petitioner quickly and sarcastically responds, “It depends on what the question is.” Then amazingly the student replies, “yeah, that’s true”.

I can only assume that the college students who were willing to sign my petition calling on President Obama to support the terror group, were ignorant to the group’s existence.

God, I hope so!

Over the period of about an hour, I stood on the campus of George Mason University in Northern Virginia and asked passing students to sign my petition.  The petition was adorned with the ISIS flag above the unambiguous headline, “SUPPORT ISIS.”

Nancy Pelosi To Bill Maher ‘Civilization as We Know It Would Be in Jeopardy’ if Republicans Win the Senate

WOW Really San Fran Nan, ‘Civilization as We Know It Would Be in Jeopardy’ if Republicans Win the Senate? Sadly this delusional fool believes that.

It is hard to believe that this crazoid was the Speaker of the House. From all of the deranged comments that came out of her mouth during the interview was the following, “Fear is a motivator, and we are not fear-mongers. The Democrats are messengers of hope, and that’s what we will continue to be.” HOPE and not FEAR MONGERS? Far from it toots. Your message of hope is one of making individuals dependent upon a federal government and forever being subjugated to it.

The Daily Caller:

On the one hand, California U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi claims that Democrats are not “fear-mongers;” on the other hand, she believes civilization is doomed if Republicans take control of the Senate from Democrats in November.

The former speaker of the House made those dramatic, incongruous statements on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” which aired live from Washington, D.C. Friday.

Maher asked Pelosi about recent polling which shows that the GOP is likely to take over the upper chamber and asked, given gridlock in Washingon, why it matters that Democrats keep control.

“It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate,” Pelosi told Maher. “Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate.”

US Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) Says Key To Getting Out The Dem Vote Is ‘Sexting’ (VIDEO)

74 year old Democrat Representative Jim Clyburn from South Carolina has come up with a sure fire way to get out the Democrat vote in 2014 … SEXTING!!! I am almost certain Bill Clinton might agree.

From the The Daily Caller comes the third-ranking House Democrat’s appearance on C-SPAN, where REP. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) accidentally misspoke and used the word “sexting” instead of “texting”. Oops. Sorry Wonkette, but this is funny. Like you have never pointed and laughed at anyone before. Nothing like some good, clean, innocent humor.  Nothing mean intended here, obviously Rep. Clyburn not a big texter. However, with the problems facing the Democrats in 2014 thanks to Obama’s failures, sexting may be the only way to get out the vote.

“Use the tools that we have,” he said, according the Daily Caller’s clip of the appearance. “We’ve got great tools to communicate about everything else. We can text. What do we call it? Sexting. Let’s do some voting, organizing over the internet. We’ve got the tools. Let’s use them for a new massive movement that will make sure that we can have in November 2014 the kind of turnout at the polls that we had in 2012 in November.”

UNREAL … White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Has No Idea What Victory Over ISIS Looks Like

FEEL SAFE AMERICA … THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE HAS NO IDEA WHAT VICTORY OVER ISIS LOOKS LIKE, THEN JOKES ABOUT IT.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked a rather simple question today by Yahoo! News correspondent Olivier Knox, following President Obama’s ISIS speech last night, what “victory” over the Islamic State would look like and what “destroy” really means? Earnest replied with a joke, “I didn’t bring my Webster’s Dictionary up here.” WTF!!! Really, if ISIS and their destruction a laughing matter? How does one plan a strategy against a terror group like ISIS and not define what a victory is?  These are serious times and call for serious people. Sadly, we have nothing by jokes in the White House. It starts from the top and trickles down … these people are not serious and America should be scared as hell they are in charge.

There is a reason why Gallup poll now says that Republican party better able to protect United States than Democrats from terrorism, 55% to 32%.

NewsBusters:

REPORTER (according to the Washington Times Yahoo! News correspondent Olivier Knox), it was :What does victory look like here? You’ve talked about destroying ISIL, I honestly don’t know what that means. What does that mean?

JOSH EARNEST: I didn’t bring my Webster’s dictionary with me up here. We’ll, you know. It’s only –

REPORTER: Talking about that — I understood it when you said –

JOSH EARNEST: I think that’s a pretty illustrative phrase to describe the situation that we envision. We’ve talked about the threat that ISIL poses in the context of foreign fighters.

When Liberals Attack Each Other … Bill Maher To Charlie Rose, To Claim that Islam Is Like Other Religions Is Naive And Plain Wrong … “Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it.”

IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER TO SEE THAN TWO LIBS GOING AFTER EACH OTHER?

Okay this is rather frightening, hell might have just froze over. In the course of a week I find myself first agreeing with Michael Moore and now Bill Maher. YIKES!!! During an interview with Charlie Rose, uber-lib Bill Maher and even bigger uber-lib Rose clashed over Islam when Rose tried to link Islam to Christianity and tried to disavow radical Muslims as representatives of the religion. Bill Maher refuted Rose in saying it is just naive and plain wrong to claim that Islam is like other religions. Then provided some common sense examples. It has always been the ultimate in hypocrisy how the LEFT would embrace Islam and condemn Christianity or Judaism. It is Islam that treats women as second class citizens, it is Islam that would have zero tolerance for gays or anyone else who was not of Islam. Yet most libs just turn a blind eye to it and pretend like it does not exist

MAHER: There are illiberal beliefs that are held by vast numbers of Muslim people that –

ROSE: A vast number of Christians too.

MAHER: No, that’s not true. Not true. Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it. Vast numbers of Christians do not treat women as second class citizens.

MAHER: – do not believe if you draw a picture of Jesus Christ you should get killed for it. So yes, does ISIS do Khmer Rouge-like activities where they just kill people indiscriminately who aren’t just like them? Yes. And would most Muslim people in the world do that or condone that? No.

Rose  went on to claim that “moderate Muslims” do not approve of the actions of radical groups like ISIS, Maher provided proof that it was not the case. Rose said the Koran does not teach Muslims to do “these kind of things.” Good grief, has this dude actually ever read the Koran?

MAHER: But most Muslim people in the world do condone violence just for what you think.

ROSE: How do you know that?

MAHER: They do. First of all they say it. They shout it.

ROSE: Vast majorities of Muslims say that?

MAHER: Absolutely. There was a Pew poll in Egypt done a few years ago — 82% said, I think, stoning is the appropriate punishment for adultery. Over 80% thought death was the appropriate punishment for leaving the Muslim religion. I’m sure you know these things.

ROSE: Well I do. But I don’t believe –

MAHER: So to claim that this religion is like other religions is just naive and plain wrong. It is not like other religious. The New York Times pointed out in an op-ed a couple weeks ago that in Saudi Arabia just since August 4th, they think it was, they have beheaded 19 people. Most for non-violent crimes including homosexuality.

The Left Has Lost the Loving Feeling … Michael Moore Slams Obama Says History Will Only Remember You Were a Black President

OUCH … Uber-Lefty Michael Moore rips Barack Obama and says, history will only remember you were a black President … So much for the Obamamessiah.

How many times can you say that you agree with Michael Moore? It has only taken Michael Moore six years what so many knew many years ago, Barack Obama is an epic failure. Moore stated during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, “When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: He was the first black president.”  That’s interesting, because in many respects, that is the only reason why he was first elected. Moore also went on to call Obama a disappointment. Wow, even the Far Left has Obama buyer’s remorse. Is it possible for socialists to have buyers remorse? Of course it is, individuals like Michael Moore rail on capitalism, but it was capitalism that made him rich.

Note: If the Left abandons Barack Obama, we may see Obama’s poll numbers hit s historic, all-time presidential low into the 20′s.

“When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: He was the first black president,” Moore said during a discussion at The Hollywood Reporter’s video lounge at the Toronto Film Festival.

“OK, not a bad accomplishment, but that’s it,” the director said. “That’s it, Mr. Obama. 100 years from now: ‘He was the first black American that got elected president.’ And that’s it. Eight years of your life and that’s what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, knowing you, that — you’d probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could’ve done.”

“So, it is, on that level, a big disappointment,” Moore said.

The NRO – Michael Moore: Obama’s ‘a Huge Disappointment’.

When the interviewer asked whether Moore agreed with President Obama’s 2012 assertion that he’d “saved Detroit” by bailing out General Motors and Chrysler, the filmmaker recoiled. “Detroit, at this point, would stand a better chance if they were an Iraqi or Syrian city, in terms of getting some sort of help,” he said.

Latest NBC Marist Poll Shows GOP Opening Up Leads in Key Senate Races Ahead of 2014 Midterms

Republicans need a net pickup of 6 Senate seats in the 2014 midterm elections in order to wrestle control away from Harry Reid and Democrats.

The GOP need a net pickup of 6 Senate seats in order to gain control of the US Senate. A recent NBC/Marist poll shows that although Democrat incumbent Sen. Mark Udall is still leading in Colorado, Republicans are surging in the key “red” state races in Kentucky and Arkansas. US Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) leads incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor by five points among likely voters, 45% to 40%. Although Kentucky is not a pickup for the GOP, some Democrats have thought that it could be a possible loss for the GOP. However, that does not appear to be the case. In reality, the GOP already is at a +3 as Republicans will pick up seats in the open Senate races formerly held by Democrats in Montana, West Virginia and South Dakota.

Other Senate seats currently held by Democrats that are now in play include Alaska, Louisiana, North Carolina, Iowa, New Hampshire and Michigan.  My person opinion is that the GOP with have a net pick up of 7, possibly 8 Senate seats. If all things go right, it could be 9, but my gut feeling says this will not be a wave election like in 2010 because too many establishment Republicans are running and the establishment appears to have no clue that their conservative base is what wins elections. Not being Democrat light.

US Rep. Cotton (R-AR) calls Democrat Sen. Pryor a good Obama foot soldier, who was the deciding vote for Obamacare and who has voted with Obama 93% of the time.

Republican Senate candidates have opened up leads in the key states of Arkansas and Kentucky, putting them in a strong position to win back the U.S. Senate, according to new NBC News/Marist polls.

But another NBC/Marist poll shows Democrats holding on in the blue state of Colorado, suggesting a limit to the gains that Republicans could make in November.

In Arkansas, Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., leads incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor by five points among likely voters, 45 percent to 40 percent, with two minor candidates getting a combined 5 percent.

In Kentucky, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is ahead of Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes by eight points among likely voters, 47 percent to 39 percent, with Libertarian David Patterson getting another 8 percent.

And in Colorado, incumbent Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., is up by six points over Rep. Cory Gardner, 48 percent to 42 percent.

Greta Van Susteren Says the Obama White House Pressured Her to Get FOX News Reporter to Back Down on Benghazi Investigation

More dirty Chicago-style politics and shredding of the First Amendment by the Obama Administration …

FOX News’ Greta Van Susteren admitted Friday in “Off the Record” that she was called by the Obama White House and pressured to get Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin (VIDEO) to back down on her Benghazi investigation. So much for The US Constitution, the First Amendment and Freedom of the Press. Of course we know the rest of the lapdog media was more than willing to oblige Obama.

“Since day one of Benghazi FOX News has been aggressively investigating. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been more like pulling teeth to get answers from the Obama administration. The Obama administration’s behavior post Benghazi has been weird. Like they’re trying to hide something. First that silly story about that video. Remember Susan Rice on all the Sunday talk shows? Even President Obama kept talking about the video for weeks. So FOX continued to press for information … A few weeks later when FOX news reporter Jennifer Griffin said she was told there was a stand-down order at Benghazi, I got a weird call from the Obama administration trying to pressure me to get Jennifer to back down on her report. I thought the call from the Obama administration was dirty. Incidentally, I don’t control my colleagues and they don’t control me.”
