Been reading WND News. Not your favorite new TV station!

By the way they now say Obama may have done illegal and Constitutional items to win the election.
They also say Benghazi was a weapons distributing location.

Not bad for your ole Democrats you love.

Wonder how much truth this is or if any will ever come out with the final truth.

Want to ditch Obama and Hillary ??

Good Friday morning everyone! How many of you got to leave your job yesterday with tons of unfinished work and head out for a 5 week vacation? Anyone? No?? Well that's exactly what Congress did. Even tho the transportation and housing bill tanked they did manage to accomplish one thing before leaving town, any guesses? Yes! That's right! They made plans to repeal Obamacare for th 40th time when they return! FORTIETH TIME!! That all comes along with a nice little price tag in the ballpark of $60 million!! Where else can you walk off from your job and take a 5 week vacation when you haven't accomplished anything but wasting our money? NOWHERE ladies and gentlemen!! Well we have something to look forward to...apparently Boehner seems to think the members of Congress will come back in a much better mood after the August recess. Wonderful! I can only imagine what they will accomplish when they're all well rested and in good moods!!~D~ &#8234;#&#8206;LivingB lueKY

Audio Emerges Proving Secret Conservative
Organization Behind Benghazi “Scandal”

Groundswell, the conservative behind-the-scenes organization that forms a coalition between prominent Republicans, right wing media, and conservative activists to wage a “30-front war against Obama and progressives” has been revealed to have played a role in the hype and false scandalization of the Benghazi “controversy.” A secret tape released by Crooks And Liars (audio below) has detailed the cooperation between House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Ginni Thomas (the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas), former Rep. Allen West, as well as high-ranking members of Judicial Watch and Breitbart. The meeting was presided over by Catherine Engelbrecht, one of the founders of the voter suppression group, True The Vote.

In the tape, Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy and Jerry Boykin of the Family Research Council are revealed to have met with Boehner and Issa to discuss Benghazi:

Is Mitch really about to be ditched?

Mitch McConnell seems to be whistling past two graveyards.

Kentucky’s senior senator says he’s not sweating either of the candidates who want his job. Polls and recent history suggest he should be.

McConnell insists “countless Washington liberals” egged on Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes to run against him. Yet it was the state Democratic Party brass who besought her -- more on that in a minute.

Anyway, the senate minority leader claims he is eager to take on Grimes, whom he has tagged “President Obama's Kentucky candidate.”

Maybe McConnell is rarin’ to go. He has a ton of money and the potency of longtime incumbency. But first he’s got to fend off tea party activist Matt Bevin in the GOP primary.

Bevin calls himself “the conservative choice for Kentucky.” He says he’s “tired of seeing McConnell talk a big conservative game, but then constantly work to undermine conservatives when it really counts.”

Bevin doesn’t count for much, according to Jesse Benton, McConnell’s campaign manager. He told The Hill that Bevin is a “nuisance” candidate.
Maybe so, but another “nuisance” candidate beat McConnell’s anointed one in the 2010 Republican senate primary. Hold your horses here, too.

At any rate, Grimes was not the favorite
of “Washington liberals,” or of left-leaning Kentuckians like me. Most of us wanted Ashley Judd to come home and run. She’s a real deal liberal.

Grimes is moderately conservative by Bluegrass State standards. She’s to the right of me and most other Democrats beyond Dixie and border states like Kentucky.

Grimes will cruise in the Democratic primary. Besides her, the field includes some not-a-chance candidates. No other Democratic heavy hitter is expected to run.

McConnell also was set for an easy ride in the GOP primary. Ante-Bevin, he had just one nonentity to get past.

To be sure, this union card-carrying Hubert Humphrey Democrat wishes Grimes were a Kirsten Gillibrand, a Barbara Boxer or a Barbara Mikulski. They’re my kind of DC Democrats. But I also know they probably couldn’t get elected in Red State Kentucky. Only about 38 percent of us voted for President Obama last November.

Grimes is half a loaf to this lifelong Kentuckian. Yet McConnell and Bevin are no loaf. They’re not even the bread wrapper. So Grimes has got my vote.
Anyway, polls show Grimes is more than competitive against McConnell. Some surveys say the race is even.

Judd’s numbers looked halfway decent, too. Nonetheless, the Democratic bigwigs said a “Hollywood Liberal” couldn’t win, and they were probably right. But it is also true that Judd was excessively liberal for most of them.

Bevin says McConnell is too liberal. That, of course, shows just how far right wing he is. More than a few Kentucky Republicans agree with him, notably those of the tea party persuasion who insist Obama is a socialist, if not an out-and-out communist. These same folks rallied ‘round Rand Paul for the senate in 2010.

Paul was – and still is – the Kentucky tea party favorite. The faithful haven’t forgotten that in the GOP primary, McConnell backed then Secretary of State Trey Grayson over their man.

Grayson was McConnell’s protégé, Harry Potter to Dumbledore. But Voldemort, er, Paul, won. He also beat Democratic Attorney Gen. Jack Conway in the general election.

After the primary, McConnell had to go cap-in-hand to Paul, who reciprocated by endorsing him. Post-Bevin, Paul says he’s still for McConnell. Benton is a Paul fan.

So will Mitch finally get ditched? Will Bevin pull a Paul and beat McConnell in the primary?
Will the rest of the Paul faithful go along with their guy and play on Team Mitch?

If McConnell wins the primary, will Bevin back him? Or will he, or some other tea partier, run as an independent?

Tea party types seem less prone toward the half-a-loaf school of politics than those of us who don’t duck the liberal label and who don’t think “socialist” is necessarily a dirty word. Most of us – especially we Red State residents -- are pretty practical when it comes to voting.

We know if we sit out elections because a candidate like Grimes is not as liberal as we would like, we only help the other side.

Everybody knows Democrats like me are a tiny fraction of the state Democratic Party. We don’t count for much.

Oh, we’re glad to have Rep. John Yarmuth of Louisville and some state lawmakers from the Falls City and parts of Lexington. Almost every other Democratic elected official in Kentucky is a conservative Blue Dog or a DINO – a Democrat in name only. But even a quarter loaf…

On the other hand, a lot of tea partiers are of the compromise-equals-surrender persuasion.
The tea party is the tail that wags the GOP canine in Kentucky. How the tea partiers vote will make a big difference in who wins next year.

“United We Stand, Divided We Fall,” is our famous state motto. Almost all Democrats are marching behind Grimes. It’s far from certain the GOP will be similarly unified.

Alison Grimes Storms Into Fancy Farm and Turns Mitch McConnell Into a Paranoid Old Man

She called McConnell out on his votes against the Violence Against Women Act, the Lily Ledbetter Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act. Grimes called for Kentucky to have a senator that unites ALL Kentuckians. She said Kentucky women deserve equal pay for equal work.

McConnell wore a silly grin and looked very scared.
Alison Grimes Storms Into Fancy Farm and Turns Mitch McConnell Into a Paranoid Old Man
Democratic senate candidate Alison Grimes blew into the Fancy Farm Picnic, stared down Mitch McConnell, and left him looking like a directionless and paranoid old man.

Alison Grimes began by talking about her long name and then said with your help Kentucky in January 2015 you can call me senator. Grimes said that she didn’t have to apologize for having more government experience than Rand Paul. She took a shot at Paul by pointing out that he wasn’t in Kentucky, he was spending his weekend with his loved ones, the tea party in Iowa. Grimes slammed McConnell for trying to gut Medicare. She said,”If the doctors told Sen. McConnell he had a kidney stone, he would refuse to pass it.” She hammered McConnell for being the most unpopular senator among both Democrats and Republicans.

Grimes said that McConnell is disliked by the voters in Kentucky and in the United States. She said McConnell is at the center of the DC dysfunction. The Democrat said after years of McConnell’s leadership the GOP stands for Gridlock Obstruction and Partisanship. She told McConnell to stop. She called out his empty rhetoric on defending Kentucky coal. She called McConnell on his votes against the Violence Against Women Act, and the Fair Pay Act.

Grimes called for Kentucky to have a senator that unites all Kentuckians. She said Kentucky women deserve equal pay for equal work, and she will fight to keep the state’s jobs from going overseas.

The McConnell supporters in the crowd tried to drown Grimes out, but by the end of the speech they were reduced to low murmur, as she had the Democrats in the crowd applauding and chanting along with her.

After seeing her speak today, it’s clear that McConnell isn’t going to be able to defeat Grimes simply by tying her to President Obama. Grimes is on the offensive, and going after McConnell hard. She also pulled some pages from Elizabeth Warren’s campaign playbook by making a strong appeal to women in the state.

Sec. of State Grimes has one big thing working for her. She is running on an anti-incumbent message during a time when Congress has never been less popular. She is also running against the ultimate symbol of Republican obstruction and incumbency. The contrast in the two candidates’ speeches was obvious. McConnell talked in paranoid tones about what would happen to Kentucky if he wasn’t reelected. Grimes talked about what she could do for Kentucky as the state’s senator.

While McConnell is busy with his tea party primary challenger, Alison Grimes has a chance to define him to voters now. This is why Democrats must get involved in this race early. They have an opening here. President Obama beat Mitt Romney and all of Citizens United fueled negative ads, because he defined Romney early and often. Democrats must do the same thing in Kentucky. They must get excited, get involved, and get active right now if they are going to defeat Mitch McConnell.

There was no evidence that Mr. Zimmerman started the fight. Actually, just the opposite. He was hit first by Mr. Martin and an eyewitness saw Mr. Martin on top of Mr. Zimmerman and pummeling him. Mr. Martin did not have bruises or cuts indicating he had been pummeled by Mr. Zimmerman. Mr. Zimmerman was not able to retreat as he had someone on top of him.

Your example is totally ridiculous! No comparison whatsoever.

Your son is driving out of your neighborhood to go to the store. He sees someone he does not recognize leisurely walking in the rain near the eaves of some of the homes. He calls 911 and attempts to keep the person in sight. The person goes down between two homes and he gets out of the car to see where he is going. It is dark, raining, and the person has a hood over his head so your son has no idea of his age.

The person suddenly appears and punches your son in the nose knocking him to the ground. He then straddles your son and begins pummeling him and slamming his head against the concrete. Your son is legally carrying a gun and cannot get the person off from him. He screams for help, but no one comes.

Your son is scared to death and afraid this person is going to kill him. What should he do?

Democrats argue that deficit spending was needed to combat the 2008 recession, but what did taxpayers get for their money? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment averaged 5.26 percent during the Bush years. The average during the Obama years was 9.26 percent.

Even more telling is the fact that the Civilian Labor Force Participation Rate, the percentage of Americans working, has declined from 67.2 percent in January 2001 to 65.7 in January 2009 and to 63.8 percent in May 2012. According to Multpl.com , the U.S. population increased in each of those years, from 285 million in 2001 to 306 million in 2009. The U.S. population now stands at 313 million according to the U.S. Census. This means that fewer total Americans are working now than when President Obama took office even though the population has increased by 7 million. When President Bush left office 20.1 million Americans were working. Today only 19.9 million are in spite of a population growth of seven million.

Even though the Great Recession officially ended in June 2009, five months into Obama’s presidency and three years ago, the economy and the job markets have not recovered. By many measures, the economy is worse today than it was three years ago. The Federal Reserve announced last week that American wealth had decreased by 40 percent between 2007 and 2011. Home prices, which crashed in 2008, have not recovered and continue to decline in many markets. The Wall St. Journal reports that economists are “increasingly pessimistic” and more are predicting that the stagnant recovery will turn into another recession.
