Other than say nuclear war or the Holocaust, there are few things worse than a victory party staged for a losing candidate: all drooping banners, sagging balloons, and a few dispirited stragglers discreetly stuffing the last of the baby carrots into their suit jackets.
On the other hand, there are few things more fun than a victory party where everyone wins. And for the good guys there are few places in America where that experience can be had as it can occasionally be had in Kansas. (more…)
A senior party consultant who was on the low end with his predictions said the party would lose between 40 and 50 seats. On the high end, one Democratic consultant said losses could number around 70 seats.
This isn’t a wave, it’s a tidal shift-and we’ve seen it coming for a long time. Remarkably, there have been plenty of warning signs over the past two years, but Democratic leaders ignored them. At least the captain of the Titanic tried to miss the iceberg. Congressional Democrats aimed right for it.
The American public is enraged and wants to punish those who have been in charge of the country. They know those who will replace incumbents may be as bad or worse, but they also believe they can’t do any greater damage. They are willing to put up with them until the next election to teach our elected representatives a monumental lesson — that public service is an honorable profession and must be performed competently and honestly.
We are an optimistic, generous people, who believe in fairness and justice. And we will be heard.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Topeka, KS October 28, 2010, 8:00PM– Secretary of State Chris Biggs has been trying to cover up the volume and scope of documented reports of voter fraud in Kansas.
KSHB-TV in Kansas City reported just this morning, “In Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas and Jackson County in Missouri, NBC Action News has identified 11 cases of dead people being recorded as voting in elections.”
In response to this news report, Biggs has been downplaying the potential for fraud, covering up a memo produced by the Secretary of State’s office in 2008 for the Kansas Legislature.
The attached memo from State Election Director Brad Bryant details dozens of credible reports of voter fraud the Secretary of State’s office followed up on. In one instance, there were 50 reported incidents of possible advance ballot fraud.
Mr. Bryant states in the memo, “Without a voter identification policy, election officials have no way of knowing how many or which voters may have committed fraud.”
Kris Kobach supports a photo ID requirement at the polls. Biggs opposes photo ID.
“The memo from the Secretary of State’s office speaks for itself,” said Ben Davis, Kobach’s campaign manager.
The Kobach campaign obtained the memo from State Representative Joe Patton. The memo was prepared for the Kansas Legislative Research Department in 2008.

It took Democrats in the House of Representatives 40 years to become out-of-touch enough to get thrown out of office in 1994. It took 12 years for the Republicans who replaced them to abandon their principles and be repudiated in 2006. Now it appears that the current Democratic majority has lost voter confidence in only four years.

The Voice of Sanity, Wayne Flaherty
Once again we have confirmation of the hoax being perpetrated against us by Obama followers intent on expanding their control over our lives. Amid cries of agony over our alleged rampant destruction of our climate, voices of sanity are barely perceptible. I call your attention to just one of those voices emanating from a most unlikely place – the United Nations building. On September 24, 2007, Dr. Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic, told the UN Climate Conference that their Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was monopolistic and one sided. He urged the UN to publish two competing reports. (more…)
Running to the Finish Line
Less than 30 days until the General Election is here. The Victory Party has been booked for the evening of November 2 (Election Day) from 6-9:00 pm at the Riverfront Community Center. Now is not the time to let up in our efforts. It is time to put everything we have into the fight. (more…)
For McDonald’s mini-med health-care plan, a low-cost, limited plan covering about 30,000 hourly fast-food workers, the minimum medical loss ratio was economically unfeasible. The company asked for a waiver, according to memos provided to the Journal.
It turns out lots of other companies are seeking waivers for limited benefit plans — along with some states, like Maine, with a small number of insurers, according to Joseph Antos, a health-care scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank.
After decades of empirical research, economists understand that minimum wage increases aren’t much good at reducing poverty, but they’re very good at keeping less-skilled teens out of a job.
