More Union strong-arm tactics to steal an election.
Category Archives: Harry Reid
Yesterday an Alaskan Superior Court Judge dealt incumbent Senator Leeza MooKowSkee a severe blow by not allowing election officials the ability to provide voters with information on the write-in candidates.
Fast forward to today and that ruling was overruled by the Alaska Supreme Court while you slept.
Is the Alaska Division of Elections acting as advocates for the Senator?
The high court ruled quickly after attorneys for the state Division of Elections petitioned for a review of a ruling issued earlier Wednesday by Anchorage Superior Court Judge Frank A. Pfiffner.
We’re 5 days before the election and lots of very dubious events are happening not just in Alaska, but because of Court rulings in Arizona on voter ID requirements, Harry Reid’s son and the SEIU seem to be conspiring to steal the election in Nevada, strange ballot episodes in North Carolina and other peculiarities are occurring.
The day after the House of Representatives’ vote on Obamacare I captured information on the Gang of 219 that voted for it as well as their opposition.
That was back on March 23rd and it was as much therapy as scientific research, but I had convinced myself that it might prove useful in removing each and every one of these arrogant Congresscritters that had voted against the will of the people.
I revisited my old spread sheet tonight now that the primaries are done. The website Politics1 is an invaluable website for compiling such things, incidentally.
It was dismaying on March 23rd that of those who voted YES, many thought they were safe as they had no opposition at that time. 64 of the Gang of 219 had no opponent. Today, there are only 12 with no opponent. I appreciate every one of those people who have stepped up in the face of adversity. Of those stepping up; a pastry chef, a funeral home owner, a carpenter, a roofing contractor, multiple medical professionals, and a realtor who happens to have been the former President of the Haitian Senate.
Among those running are 26 candidates who entered the fray after I collected my info back in late March, went up against others who were already running and won their primaries. Most notable is Daniel Webster, who beat 9 challengers in FL-8 to go up against the Devil, Alan Grayson, probably the most despicable and detestable Congressman in the Gang of 219. You remember Grayson, right? Do I have to assemble all of the reprehensible stuff he’s done and said?
I don’t know anything about THIS Daniel Webster, but I’m going to have to give him the benefit of the doubt.
There is simply not enough time to research this completely if you’re actually employed. Any insider info on any of these races would be appreciated.
All I know is there are 14 of the Gang of 219 who are no longer seeking re-election to their House posts. Some are running for higher office like Kendrick Meeks, who is opposing Marco Rubio for the Senate, so that means he’ll soon be retired.
Others, like Bart Stupak realized that their late night dalliances with Barack Obama, has resulted in them being double crossed, exposed as frauds and know that their electoral fortunes have turned to crap. That’s what they get for their slow dances with a street hustler.
This is a view from 40,000 feet, but I am simply amazed and grateful that so many patriots came out of there comfort zones to try to save their country, for better or worse.
Find your disfavorite incumbent and show some love to the opponent. I’ll try to use this list to flush out more info over the next few weeks. All of the reps on the left voted for Obamacare.
Thank you all and God speed.

Today The Hill reported that Harry Reid has adopted a new pet in the self-proclaimed “bearded Marxist” and Delaware Democrat Senatorial nominee Chris Coons. Not once, but two times Reid referred to Coons has his pet.
“I’m going to be very honest with you — Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. He’s my pet. He’s my favorite candidate,” Reid said.
“Let me tell you about him: A graduate of Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School. A two-time national debate champion. He represents two-thirds of the state now, in an elected capacity. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen him or heard him speak, but he is a dynamic speaker. I don’t mean loud or long; he’s a communicator. So that’s how I feel about Delaware. I’ve always thought Chris Coons is going to win. I told him that and I tried to get him to run. I’m glad he’s running. I just think the world of him. He’s my pet.
It has been rumored for some time now that the NRA (National Rifle Association) will endorse Harry Reid in the Nevada Senate race against the conservative Sharron Angle. This is confusing to most because while Sharron Angle is a 100% Second Amendment supporter, Harry Reid pretends to be pro-gun but uses his position in the Senate to undermine the right to keep and bear arms.
While the NRA has gone out of their way to state that they have yet to endorse anyone in this race.
For the record, the NRA-PVF has not yet made an endorsement in the Nevada U.S. Senate race. In fact, there have been no announced endorsements for any U.S. Senate seat for the November general elections—period.
It is increasingly apparent that the Reid endorsement is coming. The August issue of the NRA magazines included a preemptive explanation for the unpopular recommendation titled Making Endorsements Count which regurgitates the NRA-PVF Endorsement Policy. They go on about being non-partisan and a single issue organization that is incumbent friendly.
The NRA-PVF is non-partisan in issuing its candidate grades and endorsements. We do not base our decisions on a candidate’s party affiliation, but rather on his or her record on Second Amendment issues. The NRA is a single-issue organization. The only issues on which we evaluate candidates seeking elected office are gun-related issues. While there are many issues a candidate must address with voters, and while voters evaluate a number of non-gun-related issues in factoring which candidate they will support or oppose, NRA-PVF’s sole criteria in issuing grades and endorsements is a candidate’s position on gun-related issues.
The problem is Harry Reid’s voting record on gun issues is not great. The Gun Owners of America has given him an F. Red State listed dozens of examples where he voted opposite of the wishes of the NRA. Erick Erickson also points out that the impending endorsement is payback for a $61 million earmark for a Clark County, Nevada shooting park and the NRA carve out in the Disclose Act. I also found another little nugget that Reid stuffed into in the same Health Care bill amendment that contained the famous Cornhusker kickback.
S Amendment 3276
-Specifies that health care coverage, premium rates, and any participation in health and wellness programs shall not be affected by an individual’s lawful ownership, use, or storage of firearms or ammunition, nor shall such data be collected on individuals (Sec. 10101).
The wisdom of endorsing such a candidate is debatable, Harry Reid is a powerful incumbent who has shown while not reliable, on occasion he can deliver a favorable vote, earmark, or carve out. What makes this coming endorsement so unforgivable is Senator Reid’s destructive and disastrous record on his leadership and votes to confirm radical anti-gun nominees and to vote no on pro 2nd amendment nominees. Harry Reid has voted yea on AG Eric Holder ( who supports banning many semi-automatic firearms), Justices Kagan, Sotamayor, Breyer, and Ginsburg all liberals with a predilection to limit or restrict gun rights while casting no votes on the pro Second Amendment Chief Justice Roberts, Justices Alito, and Thomas. The NRA needs to realize that it is futile to have endorse candidates who vote the “right way” on legislation only to confirm Justices who will strike down our Second Amendment Rights.
The NRA should not endorse Harry Reid and it is not enough for them to stay neutral. Chris Cox and Wayne LaPierre need to endorse Sharron Angle for Senate.
The Gipper stars in this new video, released by the Republican Study Committee. It’s as powerful as it is chilling, to hear Ronald Reagan’s predictions about government, and then see today’s Democrats fulfill those prophecies.
Today’s Democrats are led by a woman who said we needed to pass a massive health care takeover bill in order to find out what’s in it. Well, today’s Democrats are also led by a man who is evidently corrupting the Food & Drug Administration for the sake of “bending the cost curve” to make Obamacare somewhere near fiscally feasible. That’s something he said he would never do – he even promised that if you like your health care/doctor/you name it, you could keep it. We’re finding out what’s in the bill – death for those who suffer, and the end of free choice for everyone else. Oh, and higher taxes and probably national bankruptcy if we stay on the path we’re on.
Today’s Democrats…sensitivity to Islamists at the expense of Americans, a lawsuit against a state that’s trying to enforce border security, and race bombs being thrown all about for fun and political profit.

This pitiful graph from Gallup just needed a little jazzing up so I fixed it for them…
I would have used Nancy Pelosi but that would require an image of her in a bathing suit. I’m cruel, but I’m not totally heartless.
When asked about the miserable ratings of Congress, her majesty uttered something unintelligible about eating cake.
The Gallup numbers are very encouraging when asked ‘How much confidence do you have in the following:’
Obama has gone from 51% to 36% in a little over a year. That’s a minus FIFTEEN, your excellency!
Or to put it another way…
That bears repeating, so I will.
Sorry, but I just can’t help myself. Did I mention that Obama’s confidence numbers have gone down this much in a year?
There is disgruntlement in general across many institutions, but amazingly, there were some sectors that did actually GAIN in confidence over the year:
Medical System +4
Big Business +3
The Military is Still Numero Uno in inspiring confidence.
This is an interesting obituary posted int the Las Vegas Review Journal. It’s pretty standard stuff, but it’s got a good ending.
CHARLOTTE MCCOURT Charlotte M. Tidwell McCourt, 84, of Pahrump, passed away July 8, 2010, after a long illness. She was born Dec. 25, 1925, in Wellington, Utah, and was a 40-year resident of Nevada. Charlotte held a zest for life and loved serving her family of five children; 20 grandchildren; and 65 great-grandchildren. She had been the wife of Patrick L. McCourt for 67 happy years. Active in her community, she assisted in many political figures’ campaign efforts. As an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Charlotte served as a leader in the Relief Society for over 20 years. She and her beloved husband also served a full-time mission in the Cabanatuan Mission in the Phillipines. Charlotte is survived by her husband, Patrick; children, Pat and Nellie McCourt, Dan and Lanny Shea, Bill and Marsha Sortor, David and Sherry d’Hulst, and Tom and Ann McMullin; and many grandchildren. A memorial service was held Saturday, July 10, at the LDS Chapel, 921 E. Wilson, in Pahrump. We believe that Mom would say she was mortified to have taken a large role in the election of Harry Reid to U.S. Congress. Let the record show Charlotte was displeased with his work. Please, in lieu of flowers, vote for another more worthy candidate.
