“Fire Harry Reid” Picks Up Steam

We missed our shot in 2010 but it looks like “Fire Harry Reid” is now becoming a rallying cry for 2014.

Taking him out of the position leader will be vital for the future of this country.

Now the American people are finally rising up!

_________

Hoping to galvanize their base further, Republicans are casting the midterm elections as a golden opportunity to fire Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who has served as lead blocker for President Obama’s liberal agenda on Capitol Hill and chief opponent of GOP legislation.
The attacks are being espoused inside and outside the Capital Beltway and could become staples of the Republican message as the party looks to pick up the six seats needed to take the Senate gavel out of Mr. Reid’s hands.

Hillary Sent Weapons To Al-Qaeda In Libya!

Bombshell. The U.S. government sent $500M worth of weaponry to arm the opposition in Libya back in 2011.

The problem? They were members of Al-Qaeda!!

We MUST stop with arming our sworn enemies. When will we learn?! We can’t afford this woman as President.
_____________
The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn’t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.

‘The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,’ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

She blamed the Obama administration for failing to stop half of a $1 billion United Arab Emirates arms shipment from reaching al-Qaeda-linked militants.
‘Remember, these weapons that came into Benghazi were permitted to enter by our armed forces who were blockading the approaches from air and sea,’ Lopez claimed. ‘They were permitted to come in. … [They] knew these weapons were coming in, and that was allowed..

‘The intelligence community was part of that, the Department of State was part of that, and certainly that means that the top leadership of the United States, our national security leadership, and potentially Congress – if they were briefed on this – also knew about this.’

The weapons were intended for Gaddafi but allowed by the U.S. to flow to his Islamist opposition.

The Campaign I’m Most Impressed With

I spend a lot of time evaluating candidates in races across the country.  Many factors go into evaluating a candidates electability.  The process starts by making sure that the candidate has the ability to raise enough money to be competitive.  If they can afford to win the office their running for the next thing to evaluate is their digital footprint.  What happens when you search the candidates name on Google, Facebook, and Twitter will be what a huge block of voters base their voting decision on.
For a while I’ve been using Representative Tom Cotton’s web presence in his Senate campaign against Democrat Mark Pryor as the example of someone getting it right.  His online presence is worth taking a look at:
Wikipedia (My Grade: A+)
Wikipedia is a critical online presence that can seem alien to many people.  Wikipedia is almost always one of the top first 3 or 4 search results on the major search engines.   Wikipedia can be extremely frustrating for the uninitiated with a complex community structure of volunteer editors.
Cotton’s page portrays him fairly and accurately as an impressive candidate with an exemplary resume.
Twitter (My Grade: A-)
He has two twitter accounts @TomCottonAR has respectable 6200 followers and is updated regularly.  @RepTomCotton has 5,000 followers is also active. Both accounts make effective use of pictures and graphics.  We’d like to see a candidate of his caliber with a higher follower count hence the minus.
Facebook (My Grade: A)
Candidates cannot underestimate the juggernaut that Facebook has become. There have been many stories about Facebook declining but most of those stories are based on younger users moving to other social media venues. Older people (read voters) still use Facebook and any effective campaign must reach people there.
Cotton has an astounding Facebook presence with 144,000 likes and 41,000 “talking about this”.  Nearly every post has engagement well into the thousands.
It was a close call between A and A+ and the only room for improvement is the “likes” to “talking about this” ratio.
Overall (My Grade: A+)
I didn’t look at his Instagram, Pinterest, and whatever the kids are using these days.  I should probably know more than I do about Instagram and Pinterest as they seem to have a sizable and growing audience especially with women.  When I do find the time to go figure them out, I’ll start by seeking out Tom Cotton’s pages, confident that his technology team will have provided a sterling example of how to do it.
Having a big presence in social media and on the internet is only valuable if as a distribution method for quality content.  The most recent video ad for Tom Cotton is extremely well done.  Cotton manages to respond to a mean-spirited attack from his opponent with a good natured rebuttal that highlights many of the most impressive aspects of his resume.

Obama’s America: USA Middle Class No Longer The Richest

What an embarrassment! Remember President Obama running on an agenda to build the American middle class?….Oops!

When will people wake up to the fact that liberal policies help NO ONE!

2016 can’t here fast enough!

_____________

The American middle class, long the most affluent in the world, has lost that distinction.

While the wealthiest Americans are outpacing many of their global peers, a New York Times analysis shows that across the lower- and middle-income tiers, citizens of other advanced countries have received considerably larger raises over the last three decades.

After-tax middle-class incomes in Canada — substantially behind in 2000 — now appear to be higher than in the United States. The poor in much of Europe earn more than poor Americans.

The numbers, based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, offer some of the most detailed publicly available comparisons for different income groups in different countries over time. They suggest that most American families are paying a steep price for high and rising income inequality.Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries, or stronger, a small percentage of American households is fully benefiting from it. Median income in Canada pulled into a tie with median United States income in 2010 and has most likely surpassed it since then. Median incomes in Western European countries still trail those in the United States, but the gap in several — including Britain, the Netherlands and Sweden — is much smaller than it was a decade ago.

In First Boston Marathon Since Bombing, An American Wins For First Time In Over 30 Years!

Powerful stuff coming out of Boston today with an American winning the Boston Marathon for the first time since 1983.

In the first race since the terrorist attacks at the finish line last year, emotions were running high and so was security.

But Meb Keflezighi, an American who wore the names of all 4 victims on each corner of his bib took the race personally and in the process made history!

______________

American Meb Keflezighi looked over his shoulder, flipped up his sunglasses and threw his arms towards the sky as he became the first American male to win the Boston Marathon in over 30 years – while wearing the names of the bombing victims on his race bib.

Keflezighi’s time of 2:08:37 made him the first U.S. male to win the storied foot race since 1983. The 38-year-old crossed the finish line to a roaring crowd and was overcome with emotion as tears streamed down his exhausted face.

‘It was my dream to win Boston and to make it just like the Red Sox did and do the same thing for the people,’ Keflezighi said after the race.

The names of Martin Richard, 8, Krystle Campbell, 29,  and Lu Lingzi, 23, were each written in a corner of the bib he wore for the race. MIT Officer Sean Collier, shot dead three days after the marathon, was also included.

Carney: Obama’s Toughest Interview Was… Jon Stewart?!

I’m not sure if this is funny, sad, or a lie.

Honestly, I have no idea what to make of this comment by Jay Carney. Jon Stewart, the liberal comedian was Obama’s toughest interview?

Either way, it’s time the media stepped up and held this administration accountable!
