Thad Cochran’s Unanswered Questions

Update:  Dear Haley Barbour: STFD and STFU … Barbour Dismisses Palin And Santorum As Self-Interested ‘Outside Celebrities’

A Guest Post by Mississippi Rebel

If Thad Cochran wins tomorrow, all of the questions that he has avoided during the primary will continue to fester in the general election. And when the answers finally do come out, Travis Childers and the Democrats will reap the rewards.

Does Cochran actually own a home in Mississippi?

Who paid for the building in Washington where he “rents an apartment”?

Why has Kay Webber, his executive assistant, hosted Democratic fundraisers in the same building where Cochran lives?

Why did he bring Kay Webber on 33 taxpayer-funded trips around the world?

These issues aren’t going to disappear if Cochran somehow beats McDaniel tomorrow. At some point, more people are going to wonder why Cochran has been so secretive and defensive throughout the election.

First, he refused to debate Chris McDaniel, claiming that McDaniel “is trying to make me look bad.” Then, he refused to sit down with the largest newspaper in Mississippi.

Now, he is literally fleeing from reporters. Last week, Cochran was caught on camera switching vehicles and ducking through a building just to avoid answering a few questions.

Cochran can’t run away forever. When he finally confesses to whatever it is he is hiding, it might be too late for Republicans.

 

My thoughts on the matter.  Early in the campaign, Thad said he didn’t know too much about those Tea Party folks.  My hunch is he’s going to find out tomorrow — Big time! — Nuke

If you’re against the budget deal, you lack intellectual integrity

So.sayeth.John.McCain…

Tuesday on the Senate floor, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) took a swipe at his fellow Republicans who disagreed with him on support of the Ryan-Murray budget deal, saying that Republicans who vote against the budget deal lack “intellectual integrity.”

Really, John?  Really?

Actually, I think lost my intellectual integrity in 2008 when I voted for John McCain.

But then,  when I really think about it, I wasn’t voting for McCain at all.  I was voting for Sarah Palin.

 

The video link from Breitbart TV is here:

Dear RNC

I don’t know if it’s the RNC, or the PTB … but whoever is putting out the news stories about the republican “frontrunner” Mitt Romney ….

Just so you know …  I won’t be voting for Mitt Romney.

No way, no how, no sir.  And, while we’re at it, I won’t be voting for the “candidate most feared by the White House”, Jon Huntsman, either.

After the effort we conservatives put forth in 2010, to think that these two phucks are the best the Republicans can do is disheartening to say the least.

 

It is time to start organizing the write-in campaign for Sarah Palin?

Where there’s a will, there’s a relative

Here are two posts for your consideration this evening.

First, from Andrew Malcolm at the LAT “Top of the Ticket”.

According to the Associated Press, Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist at Ancestry.com, says the president and the hockey mom [Sarah Palin] are 10th cousins by way of common ancestor Pastor John Smith, who settled in Massachusetts in the 17th century. […]

And if that weren’t weird enough, Tyler is also claiming that conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh is also a 10th cousin of President Obama, once removed.

Malcolm lightheartedly concludes, “Since Thanksgiving is just a tad more than a month away, what do you think are the odds that President Obama invites his cousins over for the traditional American feast? “

I commented on his blog that while I doubt the Palins and the Limbaughs are on the official WH Guest List, stranger things have been known to happen.

For example, as Free Republic points out, Hawaii law HRS 338-18 defines a person with “direct and tangible interest” for the purpose of obtaining certified copies of vital records as … “A person having a common ancestor with the registrant.”

Now that common ancestry has been established, Palin, Limbaugh, et al can legally request the yet to be released Long Form Birth Certificate for President Obama.

Stranger things, indeed.

Palin v Shatner on Tonight Show

Good-natured fun on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.

First up, William Shatner does his signature dramatic reading from Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue, complete with background bongos and bass.

Moments later, in a surprise appearance, Gov Palin returns the favor with a spoof reading from Shatner’s own autobiography.

A Letter To Obama From Harold B. Estes

Sarah Palin posted a link to this letter in her FaceBook entry Nov. 28.

November 20, 2009

Dear President Obama,
My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.
One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.
So here goes.
I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.
I can’t figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
” We’re no longer a Christian nation”
” America is arrogant” – (Your wife even announced to the world,”America is mean-spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)
I’d say shame on the both of you but I don’t think you like America nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.
After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”
Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British ? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War ? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers,husbands,and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around because we stand for freedom.
I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.
Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man. Shape up and start acting like an American.If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue .You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.
And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts who was putting up a fight ? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.
One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.
You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president. You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now. And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.
Sincerely,
Harold B. Estes

Sarah Palin:Feared And Fearless!

gallup palin

This Gallup poll was released a few days ago, and from my perspective, it didn’t receive the attention it deserved, particularly the info in the above graphic.

For those who fear Sarah Palin, or are terrified of her, as well as being jealous, this is not the direction their persistent assaults on her and her family is intended. Interestingly, the notion she is not sophisticated enough, or experienced enough, comes from the same people who support/ed our current resident of the White House, the most incompetent, unqualified, least experienced, and least known person to ever hold this office.

In a Washington Post Op-Ed, Sarah Palin lays waste to the “Cap and Trade” legislation the House passed.

Can America produce more of its own energy through strategic investments that protect the environment, revive our economy and secure our nation?

Yes, we can. Just not with Barack Obama’s energy cap-and-tax plan.

This piece by Gov. Palin could not go without challenge, from the George Soros cabal. Who did they trot out first to challenge/impugn her? As humorous a choice as possible, Sen. John Kerry.

MoveOn.org began e-mailing members Tuesday, asking them to fund a rapid response ad blasting Palin’s op-ed. Soros’ group said Palin was positioning herself as the face of conservative opposition to Obama’s energy policy, telling supporters her op-ed was “a marvel of misinformation and outright lies.”

That last quote is more accurately applied to the Soros cabal, and the numerous prevaricators on his pay roll.

Then there were others who decided to weigh in on her Op-Ed, as indicated by this posting at Conservatives4Palin.

As could be expected, Governor Palin’s common sense assault on this huge government intrusion into the private sector stirred a hornet’s nest of panic among the liberals and their allies in the mainstream media. Conor Clarke of The Atlantic immediately responded, as if on cue, with an incoherent attack which was promptly and thoroughly debunked by Rob Harrison. Even one of the bill’s sponsors, Representative Ed Markey (D., Mass.), felt compelled to respond in The Daily Beast and, as with Mr. Clarke, his misinformed tirade was quickly taken apart, this time by R.A. Mansour.

Rush Limbaugh did weigh in on the Gallup poll with his commentary on 16 July, and as is his custom, cuts through the fog and finds the substance of the issue.
Wake Up, GOP! Liberals Fear Sarah Palin Because the Voters Love Her.

She has 72% approval in Palin in the Gallup poll. Political gurus and pundits — these yapping yammerers all over TV; Palin trashers in the Republican Party; the sordid, looking-down-the-nose, low-wattage elitists — you might call the office here to figure out what’s going on. This is not going to sit well with the elites in the Republican Party, the country club, blue-blood, Rockefeller Republicans. They don’t like her nearly as much as the Democrats don’t like her, but I think this is huge: 72% after a year in which she has been a target of literal political destruction. Folks, I’m just telling you: If there are any of you wimpy, wishy-washy Republicans out there who so desperately want to have a candidate that the sophisticates in the media in Washington and New York approve of, you are guaranteed to secure the Republican Party defeat after defeat after defeat. If you’re going to let them pick our nominee — which happened last time, by the way.

To further illustrate her ascendant favorable polling, despite the vicious attacks on her, I found this info at the Governor Palin 4 President blog.

It is nice to see Sarah Pac advertising on the Drudge Report. Especially since Drudge Report has often been in the top twenty visited sites in the world. In 4 months Sarah Pac brought in just under $800,000 and all of the donations were in small amounts. This is great news because it demonstrates Governor Palin has large grassroots support (unlike Romney).

Since July 3rd, donations have increased 100 fold, in 3 weeks, nearly doubling the total nearly meeting Romney’s $1.6 million. What is most encouraging for Governor Palin & Sarah Pac is the number of supporters more than triples Ronmey’s which in the end equals more votes, a much larger base and a huge grassroots campaign already in-place & nationwide.

That info reinforces the Gallup poll findings in more than an anecdotal manner. Yet, the LameStreamMedia, if it mentions Gov. Palin at all, does so with condescending and derisive reporting. Their frustration at not being able to influence more to their scripted plan of destruction must be excruciatingly painful.

The fear and loathing, while most pronounced on the left, is not to be overlooked on the self-anointed GOP elites. Victor Davis Hanson had an excellent piece last week, that has since been posted at several different sources.
Why the Elitist Hatred Toward Palin?

In short, if Palin is a “nutty puppy,” these Washington and New York insiders are a deranged pack of rabid dogs. Why, though, the venom?

An excellent question, to which he supplies numerous explanations.

Another example of the self-anointed elites disdain for Gov. Palin comes from an article at American Thinker concerning one Peggy Noonan, and in my opinion, is as accurate a description of the D.C.-NY “yammerers” as any I’ve read, and one that makes me chuckle, each time I read it.
Peggy Noonan: Sarah Palin Jealous!

You’re Peggy Noonan and you’re jealous. You don’t understand it. Sure, maybe she has accomplished a few things (like the $26 billion dollar natural gas pipeline deal, restructuring Alaskan government, and taking an ice pick to corrupt politicians). But she has no style, no pizzazz — she just does stuff. But so do you — and you can’t understand why you don’t get the same adoration. After all, didn’t you go before the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission and not just protest, but elegantly protest — so said The New York Times — a 16-story tower a developer wanted to build in your ritzy Upper East Side Manhattan neighborhood? Sarah Palin wouldn’t have done that; she’s not brilliant enough to understand preservation. She probably would have looked at the jobs the construction would create and given it a déclassé “Hell yeah!”

There is more that can be gleaned from the Gallup poll, as well as others, but suffice it to say she is a political force that cannot be easily disposed of by the self-anointed elites, right or left, and it is their chagrin that I pleasure in.
You go, Super Sarah!!

Finally, a few words from Jackie Mason on the most popular Governor in America, and the fear that they reveal.
