Teddy Turner Jr. Blames “Hanoi Jane’’ Fonda For Maing his Dad a Crazy, Moonbat Liberal … Junior is Running for Congress in South Carolina
Ted Turner Jr. told the Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show”that it was “Hanoi Jane’’ Fonda who transformer his father, Ted Turner, from a conservative to a bleeding-heart liberal. Who could not have seen that coming. When you lie with liberal dogs, you get liberal fleas. Turner Jr. claims that he grew up in a conservative home. Turner’s 180 must have been one of the greatest transformations ever. However, when you have “Hanoi” Jane as your wife, what would one expect? Ted Turner Jr. is running as a conservative for Congress in South Carolina for the House seat being vacated by Tim Scott, who today was appointed to fill the remainder of Jim DeMint’s Senate term. Turner will be running in the GOP primary against disgraced former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford. Ted Turner Jr. stated, “I’m not a liberal … People say how did you separate from your dad? I didn’t separate from my dad. My dad separated from me.’’
Listen to a blast from the past from Dana Pretzer discussing Hanoi Jane circa 2007
Ted Turner was transformed from a staunch conservative into a bleeding-heart liberal by none other than one-time wife Jane Fonda, according to the media mogul’s outspoken son. But when the senior Turner moved to the left and then expressed an interest in running for president, Fonda deep-sixed the idea by saying she’d dump him, Teddy Turner told Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’ “I was raised in a different time at the Turner household … a very conservative household with capitalism and all of that kind of stuff,’’ Turner said. But in 1991, when the senior Turner wed the Oscar-winning actress and exercise guru — once labeled “Hanoi Jane’’ for her controversial support of the North Vietnamese — things changed dramatically.
The election for the House seat for Florida’s 18th District is not over yet. US Representative Allen West (R-FL) won his legal challengeto continue the recounting of the votes. West won the court fight to have votes recounted in his Florida congressional race against Democrat Patrick Murphy. The St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections ordered a retabulation of all eight days of early voting to begin Saturday morning.
Rep. Allen West’s (R-Fla.) campaign is celebrating a circuit court judge’s decision that blocked Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy’s attempt to stop a recount of early votes in St. Lucie County, a major part of Florida’s 18th District.
“Clearly, if the canvassing board has already agreed there were discrepancies and under- or over-counted ballots, it would make no sense to halt the retabulation,” West campaign manager Tim Edson said in a statement late Saturday.
Watch this election in the end fall within the margin of error where all of the votes will have to be recounted by state law.
Maryland Democratic Congressional Candidate Wendy Rosen Quits Race Amid Voter Fraud Allegations … Caught Voting in Two States, Florida & Maryland
VOTER FRAUD …
It appears that voter fraud has caused one of their own to drop out of a Congressional race. Wendy Rosen, a Maryland Democrat Congressional candidate has quit the race against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District amid voter fraud allegations. Hmm, I guess voter fraud does exist. So much for that Democrat narrative that none exists. As stated at the PJ Tatler, kinda hard to say none exists when one of your candidates has to step down because of voter fraud. Of course Democrats will find a way to spin this that this is not real voter fraud.
A Maryland Democratic candidate quit her congressional race Monday after her own party told state officials that she had committed fraud by voting in both Maryland and Florida in recent elections.
Wendy Rosen, a small-business owner running against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District, released a statement saying that “with great regret, and much sorrow” she was resigning from the contest.
“Personal issues have made this the hardest decision that I have had to make,” Rosen said
Rosen’s announcement came the same day the state Democratic party released a letter to state Attorney General Douglas Gansler and state prosecutors reporting the allegations against Rosen.
Letter issued by state Democratic party to state Attorney General Douglas Gansler and state prosecutors reporting the allegations against Rosen.
“The Maryland Democratic Party has discovered that Ms. Rosen has been registered to vote in both Florida and Maryland since at least 2006; that she in fact voted in the 2006 general election both in Florida and Maryland; and that she voted in the presidential preference primaries held in both Florida and Maryland in 2008,” wrote Yvette Lewis, the state party chair. “This information is based on an examination of the voter files from both states. We believe that this is a clear violation of Maryland law and urge the appropriate office to conduct a full investigation.”
Yet another Democrats will not seek reelection in 2012. US Representative Heath Shuler (D-NC) will not run for reelection in 2012. Shuler was first elected in 2006 as a fiscal conservative, Blue Dog Democrat who in many instances broke with Democratic leadership on issues of spending. Shuler voted against President Obama’s 2009 economic stimulus bill as well as healthcare reform. He also launched an unsuccessful attempt to oust Rep. Nancy Pelosi (CA) following the 2010 midterm election massacre.
One of the last remaining members of the Blue Dog Coalition, Shuler was hit by congressional redistricting that made his western North Carolina district much more difficult for a Democrat to win. The three-term congressman had been floated as a possible candidate for governor in North Carolina, but announced on Wednesday that he would not be running for that office.
“This was not an easy decision,” Shuler said. “However, I am confident that it is the right decision. It is a decision I have weighed heavily over the past few months. I have always said family comes first, and I never intended to be a career politician.”
Shuler stressed to reporters that family considerations were his sole reason for leaving Congress.
“I’ve got to be at home more, spend some more time with them,” said Shuler, who has a 7-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son.
Let’s face it, many things are against Shuler in 2012. He faces a tough reelection battle due to redistricting, his Democrat party has pretty much left him as it has lurches to the far left, and it is hard to imagine that Obama will carry NV as he did in 2008.
Mark Oxner Campaign Ad for Florida District 27 … “Turn This Ship Around” … ““let’s not enslave our children with debt”
And now for a campaign ad that is completely different … from Mark Oxner for Congress. Oxner appears to be running against liberal flame thrower and former Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson, who was booted out of his District 8 office in 2010. The New Times actually calls it a “slave ship,” as depicted in the ad. Really? Have the libs at the NY Times not noticed the mountain of debt that Obama has strapped future generations to come with? Sorry if this ad does not meet the NY Times politically correct standards.
From The Blaze:
File this one under wackiest political advertisement ever made — or, at the least, one of the oddest to date. You may think that I’m being dramatic here, but take a moment to watch the 39-second clip called, “Turn This Ship Around,” that was recently created and released by the Mark Oxner campaign.
Oxner, a Republican, is hoping to win the District 27 congressional seat in Florida come November. His new video, which departs wildly from more issue-based campaign pleas, is turning heads for more reasons than one.
The bizarre ad takes place on a vessel that looks like pirate ship — but with some amenities. The New Times actually calls calls it a “slave ship.” While there’s no definitive way to determine that this is, indeed, intended to invoke images and themes related to slavery, footage of children rowing the massive boat with a voiceover that says “let’s not enslave our children with debt,” only add fuel to the fire.
Just curious, when Obama and Democrats only want to increase taxes and spending on the backs of the American people and continually increase the debt on the Chinese credit card, have record numbers on food stamps, high unemployment and actually stopping a work projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline that chooses Saudi and Venezuelan oil over Canada … what else would one call it?
The proposed District 27 is supposed to encompass most of Oceola County, plus bits of Orange and Polk counties, if the map survives probable challenges in court.
That’s all folks …
Massachusetts Democrat Barney Franks will not be running for reelection in 2012. Franks blamed redistricting for his decision; however, he had a tougher than expected reelection bid in 2010. However, it probably has more to do with the fact that most of America is on to him and his “fingerprints” that were all over the 2008 financial crisis.
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) announced Monday that he will not seek reelection in 2012, ending a three-decade career in the House.
Frank, 71, is the top Democrat on the Financial Services Committee and the architect, with former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), of the sweeping Wall Street regulatory reform law enacted in 2010.
He announced his decision at an afternoon press conference in his hometown of Newton, Mass., where he said redistricting played a major role in his retirement.
“I was planning to run again, and then congressional redistricting came,” Frank said.
Reelection? Heck, as the Gateway Pundit reminds us, earlier this year Newt Gingrich had suggested that Barney Franks should have been jailed. The post could be subtitled, the rats are fleeing the sinking ship … Frank 17th House Democrat to announce retirement.
Democrat NC Gov. Perdue’s Office Said “Suspending Elections” was a Joke … Listen to Audio, Doen’t not Sound like a Joke
The other day it was reported that North Carolina Democrat Governor Bev Perdue stated that “elections should be suspended” for two years. Quickly her office put out the talking points that she was just making a joke and using hyperbole. Really? The Daily Caller has the audio of Perdue’s comment regarding the suspension of election. I guess that Perdue must work on her stand up comic delivery or at least provide a rim shot to emphasize the comedy.
Listen for yourself and you make the call.
“Listen to the Governor’s words: She wasn’t joking at all,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood told The Daily Caller. “The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability.”
“If it was a joke, what was the set-up?,” Lockwood adds. “What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter? It took them three hours to say it was a ‘joke,’ but when that flopped it became ‘hyperbole.’ We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad idea.”
When just 17% of the American people think that the country is headed in the right direction and Democrats are headed for another 2010 shellacking in the 2012 elections, I bet those in the “Donkey” party want the elections to be suspended.
EXIT QUESTION: If Democrats are willing to suspend the US Constitution for elections, what else are they willing to suspend it for? I wonder if Democrats would be asking for the suspension of elections if they thought they were predicted to remain in power?
Pelosi & Dems Must Fear the Disgruntled Blue Dogs … Ready to Break Ranks & Cut Deals with Republicans
It would appear that House Democrat Minority leader Nancy Pelosi has a difficult next two years in store for her. Disgruntled “Blue Dog” Democrats are ready to deal with the GOP and break ranks with Pelosi. So many “blue dogs” were voted out of office in the 2010 midterm elections as upset voters showed them the door for voting with Pelosi rather than the will of their constituents.
Blue Dog Democrats remain deeply frustrated with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s leadership and are signaling they are ready to break ranks and cut deals with Republicans.
In an interview with Roll Call last week, the leadership team of the fiscally conservative group talked about its vision for the 112th Congress — and its frustration over how Pelosi ran the 111th.
State Run LEFT Media Talking Points … Obama-Pelosi Regime, “Congress the Most Productive Since Great Society”
The LEFTist state run media just cannot help them self doing the bidding for the Obama – Democrat regime …
The MSM find themselves in a game of political Texas Hold’em and are pot committed with Obama-Pelosi-Reid. While “We the People” say that the 111th Congress is the worst ever with a job approval at 13%; however, the liberal state run media usual suspects have been given their “marching orders” stating that the 111th “Congress the Most Productive Since Great Society”.
Listen to the liberal MSM talking points … hmm, I sense a pattern
Wait until you hear Obama’s whopper of a line that ends this VIDEO … “and it comes on the heals of the most productive two years that we have had in generations.” Most productive, hardly. Most expensive, YES! The state run medias most productive Congress has set a record, as stated at the Gateway Pundit, the 111th Congress added more debt than the first 100 Congresses combined … $10,429 Per Person!:
More at CNS News …
The federal government has accumulated more new debt–$3.22 trillion ($3,220,103,625,307.29)—during the tenure of the 111th Congress than it did during the first 100 Congresses combined, according to official debt figures published by the U.S. Treasury.
That equals $10,429.64 in new debt for each and every one of the 308,745,538 people counted in the United States by the 2010 Census.
Is it any wonder why the American people have given this Congress the lowest job approval ever and booted the Democrats out of power in the 2010 midterm elections in record numbers with a GOP +63 gain.
Nancy Pelosi Will Soon be Slumming it & Flying Commercial with WE THE PEOPLE, But on the “No Junk Touch” List
Do you hear that sound … it’s cricket playing the violin.
Elections have consequences … Soon to be Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s perks are coming to an end and so is her access to military aircraft for travel. Pelosi will be forced to slum it and travel commercial with the common folk, We the People. More at the Jawa Report, with tissues in hand and no sarcasm what-so-ever.
If you’re planning to fly after the new year, you may find a familiar face next to you on your next flight to San Francisco.That’s because Speaker Nancy Pelosi will no longer have access to military aircraft and will instead fly commercial to her district after she becomes House minority leader, her office confirmed to Politics Daily.
For the last four years, Pelosi has had access to Air Force planes to jet home to her California district, one of the many perks that come along with being the most powerful member of the House of Representatives and second in line to the presidency after the vice president.
However, don’t look for Nancy Pelosi to have to be forced to have naked scans (EEK) of her courtesy of the TSA of being patted down. Because all politicians are more special than us peons who are subjugated to civil rights violations, while elected officials are in a class above us all. That is because there is a “NO JUNK” touch list. You wonder why Democrats and Liberals are so for “love pats” by the TSA, as Sister Toldja tells us, maybe it’s because the pats are for WE, not for THEE.
You’ve heard of the “no-fly” list.
Now get a load of the no-grope list — a roster of the privileged federal officials and politicians who don’t have to be subjected to TSA’s grabby hands.
