Obama, ObamaCare, IRS, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, et. al. are having no impact on Senate race in NC or NH. That litany alone should be creating double digit wins. But they the Free-Shit Army is still mobilized with mucho energy.

Obsessing over polls is no way to spend a useful life.

Cap'n, we sure learned that in the last few elections. My policy this time is simply to assume the worst and maybe get pleasantly surprised. Then I ignore the polls, all of them. That has added hours to my days.

Terry McAuliffe won in Virginia & he hardly even showed himself anywhere.
Big abortion & environmental groups did all the work.

It is why the Dems are going after conservative groups. Issue groups are the power.

When jimmyk gave the roll call of lefty dimwits that IBD lets pollute their publication, I couldn't remember anything specific about Ruth Marcus (for good reason, I'm sure). Then I found this:

Yeah. Focusing on the antics of Thugs on Drugs has a much better potential for life enrichment.

Hey matt!!

Just finished writing up all the revealing things confessed on Monday night and what the implications are. http://www.invisibleserfscollar.com/authoritarian-fantasyland-a-place-with-required-habits-of-mind-but-disdain-for-facts/

My point on Katz calling for a new rewrite of the "federalist contract" to focus on cities and metros instead of states and countries is precisely what I thought of when I read about South Florida wanting to be a different state. Does anyone know of a large city not run as a Dem machine?

It's from a bowling accident, JIB.

His official statement said his face was too close to a ball while he was tossing.

I don't care if the libs have issue groups.

I just want to have them too..without Republicans dissing our groups every second.

And I don't want to FUND the lib groups with tax dollars.

And I don't want the IRS to harass our groups.

And I don't want federal agencies feeding info to lib. groups.

And I don't want conservative politicians taken to court for working with conservative groups....while the damn lib. groups write our laws & run our govt. agencies.

Dems. appear at an environmental kook gathering & it gets a front page glowing review in the MFM. A Rep. sends an email to a conservative group & they are prosecuted.

Jack,I was going to ask the Massachusetts JOMers the same question. Tierney's wife laundered money for her brothers,maybe some family dysfunction?

Captain Hate

But I need your advice/opinion on watching ballot returns.

If you're talking about election night returns, I generally avoid them since the idiot box people delivering the news aren't smart or entertaining and I'll eventually find out anyway. It's a bit enjoyable at times like 1980, 1994 and 2010 but too close to the satisfaction of pulling wings off houseflies.

Police prepare for grand jury decision in Ferguson

The preparations are aimed at avoiding a renewed outbreak of violence during the potentially large demonstrations that could follow an announcement of whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face a criminal trial for the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown.

Police and protesters have repeatedly clashed since the shooting, which prompted a national conversation about race and police tactics. Images of officers in riot gear and armored vehicles confronting protesters have drawn widespread criticism.

Many protesters want Wilson indicted for murder. Grand jury proceedings are secret, but legal analysts say recently leaked information about Wilson's testimony to investigators may be an attempt to prepare the public for the possibility that he might not be charged.

The decision could be made public within the next month.

Surely Holder's mom will see that we hear about it before Election Day.

Did Lynch just channel Reagan's 9 most terrifying words?

He just said he doesn't trust government when they say "they can handle it."

Yet he voted for Obamacare?

NKreBootDeux

Even WaPo knows no 'true bill' will be voted. The County DA knew the real story from the beginning, that's why the racialist mafia tried to discredit him. Nixon and Crump should be tarred and feathered, Holder should be horsewhipped. That is all.

James D.

Dems. appear at an environmental kook gathering & it gets a front page glowing review in the MFM. A Rep. sends an email to a conservative group & they are prosecuted.

Exactly!

Or, Lewis Libby misremembers a conversation, and gets convicted after a year-long, multi-million dollar partisan witch hunt. Obama cabinet secretaries openly lie to Congress, withhold documents and destroy evidence and...crickets.

D's abuse the law to put R's who've done nothing actually wrong in jail, bankrupt their families and destroy their lives.

R's pay lip service to the law when D's act in ways that cost lives and endanger the country; at most, they write strongly worded letters that nobody reads and hold choreographed hearings that nobody pays attention to.

Jim Eagle

Its Jim Jordan not Gowdy who is asking Lurie if she is the person to lead the nation in a situation like Ebola. Key person, correct?

She blames legislation. She has met with Ron Klain.

Now asking about the $39 million and other NIH boondoggles.

Ernst campaign requests recount procedures of several counties

IOWA CITY — Two weeks before Iowa’s high-profile U.S. Senate election, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst’s campaign may be planning for a recount.

Ernst’s campaign filed open records requests this week with at least five Iowa counties, seeking materials that include training manuals, satellite voting locations, names of precinct ballot counters, recount procedures and any communications sent to her competitor, U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley.

“I think they’re gearing up for a recount,” said Johnson County Auditor Travis Weipert, who received the letter from Ernst’s senior adviser Derek Flowers Tuesday.

Recent polls show Ernst, a Red Oak Republican, and Braley, a Waterloo Democrat, are neck and neck, with Ernst having a slight lead. If the margin of victory is thin or the results uncertain after the Nov. 4 election, a recount may be requested.

A public records request from a political candidate isn’t unusual, but the volume of materials Ernst’s campaign is seeking right before an election isn’t typical, several auditors said. Flowers asks auditors to notify him if they can’t provide the materials within five days — which may be a challenge for some counties.

To think that SNL has so much trouble spoofing this clown.

To be a way to spoof, there has to be a will... the rumors are that Lorne Michaels wants Obama comedy, but his writers won't create it. Who knows, who cares.

The Republican wants the Bush created blanket quarantine authority over US citizens reinstated, and the HHS Freak says that it it a State's rights issue.

I guess we need to abandon our free society principles to save a free society.

Pretty good reminder I found elsewhere:

Its now Gowdy questioning Dr. Lurie and why she isn't in charge of the Ebola breakout. Withering.

NK,

My feeliing is that she was given a high profile bureaucartic job that required some level of medical experience and as a result she has a elevated sense of her worth. But in reality it doesn't translate to leadership in a situation like this. Competent medico perhaps but a self-serving bureaucrat.

Janet

Lurie comes across as arrogant to me. (I haven't watched too much).

This is just yesterday's Ramirez cartoon in real time. The government departments that have been corrupted and ruined by Obummer is staggering.

Threadkiller
In addition, by not stopping travelers from West Africa from entering the United States, and through his refusal to secure our southern borders in particular, Obama has opened the door for Muslim terrorists to infect themselves with this deadly virus, illegally enter our country and spread the disease widely.

When it comes to anything Muslim, our fraudulently elected president – himself one-half Muslim by birth and totally Muslim by mentality and deed – has a tin ear at best.

These words sound harsh, and by uttering them I have received a fair number of hate emails from our leftist friends, who would run interference for Obama at all costs. But I am not a racist, and neither are you! It is time that we all stood up and exposed the president for what he is: a reverse racist whose actions, not just with regard to Ebola but across the board, are skewed toward feathering the nest of “his” people, and calculated to harm the rest of us if not destroy the entire country.

Don't panic NY1 has told New Yorkers the way to avoid Ebola.

Don't eat feces! or Mucus or Semen! of an infected person. Well, I guess New York will get a large epidemic with the amount of feces shoveled at them.

Damn good quesiton: Why can't we do the 21 day quarantine in country (West Africa) versus a 10 day isolation then travel to the US for the 21 day quarantine.

Excuse is CDC guidelines once again. This is the problem - the CDC guidelines has no ones confidence - Dem or Repub. Oh oh!

Steyn on the loneliness of the long distance wolf.

“This term ‘lone wolf’ is a cop-out…the idea that they somehow have to have a membership card in Islamic State or in al Qaeda for it to be official, fully-credentialed terror, like getting a hairdresser's license in New York State is completely preposterous” he stated.

Steyn added that the rhetoric of “lone wolf” terrorists allows those who do not want to admit that radical Islam is a problem to brush off terror as isolated incidents, saying “all jihad is local. That actually suits them, to say, ‘oh no this is just some mentally ill guy in Ottawa and this is another guy who’s bit goofy in New York and there’s no connection between the two.’ Because otherwise you have to treat it like your other big story. You have to treat it like ideological Ebola and you have to stop the infection and the ideological infection, this president, this administration has absolutely no interest in tackling”

I'd be much happier with the Corps of Engineers managing the Ebola outbreak. They actually do know something about containment and the proper allocation of resources to minimize damage after containment has been achieved. They're also not dumb enough to waste money on air transport for PR purposes when there's a functional port available.

"only direct contact with body fluids" will cause one to get ebola, etc.
is one example.

Matthew Continetti:

The change in the manner in which the government treated Islamism was profound. “Whereas the 9/11 Commission report, published under the presidency of George W. Bush in July 2004 as a bipartisan product, had used the word Islam 322 times, Muslim 145 times, jihad 126 times, and jihadist 32 times,” Gorka writes, “the National Intelligence Strategy of the United States, issued by the Obama administration in August 2009, used the term Islam 0 times, Muslim 0 times, jihad 0 times.” The omission is stunning.

"only direct contact with body fluids"

Glasater,

It depends on how one wishes to define sweat, the fine mist accompanying projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea and any microscopic moist droplets generated by respiration. A reference to a comprehensive guide to body fluids would allow the statement to be construed as "true" in the sciency sense so beloved by sophists peddling their soft soap.

Threadkiller

There is one thing they got right, lyle.

Yeah! DuDu got out from his latest stint in Jail. That is where he learned all about Islam from his cell partner.
