The Big Role of Black Churches in Two Senate Races

October 30, 2014 - 2:27am
New York Times, by Nate Cohn Posted By: JoniTx- Thu, 30 55 2014 07:55:56 GMT Early voting on Sundays has been one of the biggest fronts in the voting wars of recent years.

Data from two states that permit Sunday early voting, Georgia and North Carolina, show that 53 percent of the 25,000 early votes cast on Sunday were from black voters, compared with 27 percent of early voters across the two states since voting began for this year’s midterm elections. “Souls to the Polls” drives are a big part of the explanation. Black churches often promote voting after services, sometimes even

Power Line, by Scott Johnson Posted By: JoniTx- Thu, 30 50 2014 07:50:13 GMT The House Oversight Committee has released the video below providing a short refresher in the IRS targeting scandal.

Economy remains key for candidates, voters despite foreign crises

October 30, 2014 - 2:27am
Fox News, by Barnini Chakraborty Posted By: JoniTx- Thu, 30 37 2014 07:37:13 GMT WASHINGTON – On any given Election Day for the past two decades, the old Bill Clinton campaign mantra of, "It´s the economy, stupid," would have held up as THE defining issue. Jobs, housing, taxes '' pick one, all or more, and it was sure to hit home with voters. But with Ebola, terror threats and scandals dominating the news '' and Wall Street continuing its record climb '' it might be somewhat surprising that as House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates head into the final weekend of campaigning before next Tuesday´s elections, pocketbook issues still resonate most with voters.The latest Fox

October 30, 2014 - 2:27am
Breitbart Big Journalism, by Ben Shapiro Posted By: JoniTx- Thu, 30 32 2014 07:32:35 GMT The left insists that those who do not buy into its agenda regarding global warming are “deniers” – ignoramuses who refuse to acknowledge facts thanks to a political agenda. But when it comes to voter fraud, it is the left that lives in the realm of fantasy. Rachel Maddow, the heavyweight over at the pseudointellectual sewage tank of MSNBC – complete with nerd glasses for everyone but Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz! – says that voter fraud doesn’t exist. “The scourge of voter fraud,” Maddow writes at, “is largely imaginary.” Her source for this extraordinary claim: a study by

´Selfless´ Ebola Nurse Kaci is actually utterly selfish. Three weeks in quarantine won’t kill her – and it might just save someone´s life

October 30, 2014 - 1:27am
Daily Mail [UK], by Piers Morgan Posted By: Attercliffe- Thu, 30 56 2014 06:56:54 GMT t´s not hard to take sides in the Battle of Ebola Quarantine. In the blue corner, weighing in at over 300 pounds, is big, nasty bullyboy Governor from New Jersey, Chris Chriiiisssstttiieeee. In the red corner, weighing in at less than 150 pounds, is kind, caring, gentle, heroine nurse Kaci Hickox. At this point the fight would be stopped, right? Christie is not a man who engenders much empathy these days. Since Bridge'gate, when his vile staffers closed America´s busiest bridge to damage a political opponent, he´s seen his Presidential aspirations burn up faster than an Ebola fever.
