I didn’t have much time to spend at the blog writing about my experiences the last few months of the US Senate campaign battle between (outgoing) Senator Kay Hagan (D) and (now-Senator-Elect) NC House Speaker Thom Tillis (R).  But suffice it to say – […]

Posted by: ST on September 4, 2014 at 6:23 pm » 3 Comments

In an update to this post, the disgraceful, shameless Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, known for her insane, over-the-top, way beyond the bounds of basic civility, has issued a non-apology “apology” of sorts for her vile remarks likening Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) to a physically abusive husband: Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman […]

Just when you think the left hadn’t stooped low enough this election year. Via The Week: On Wednesday, Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz used some fairly graphic language to describe Republican Gov.

Last week, Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) sent a sharply worded letter to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman […]

**Posted by Phineas Federal senators deal with issues of national and international importance, including matters of war and peace, and overall national security. You would think, then, that someone wishing to ascend to the Senate would at least know the basics about a game-changing weapon wielded by one of our key allies, who happens to be […]

LOL – talk about trying to distance yourself as far from our celebrity Prez as possible! Via The Hill: West Virginia Democratic Senate candidate Natalie Tennant declined to say Tuesday whether she supports President Obama.  In an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” the hosts showed a photograph being circulated by her Republican opponent, Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, showing Tennant […]
