It’s (Still) Looking Good So Far…….

….for the Republicans, that is:

*In Tuesday’s Mississippi Republican primary, blacks and Democrats (not necessarily one and the same) gave incumbent GOP Senator Thad Cochran a narrow victory over Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel.

See: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/sen-cochrans-strategy-to-draw-black-democrats-to-polls-appears-to-have-worked/2014/06/25/74d72932-fc8a-11e3-8176-f2c941cf35f1_story.html

Why is this significant? Because not only does it almost certainly return the senior senator from Mississippi to Congress for another six years, but it eliminated one “Oh-No-The-Tea-Party-Is-Gaining-Ground” rally-cry from the Dems trick bag for November. Further, it showed that blacks and Dems in Mississippi may be many things, but they are apparently not fools. Cochran has been bringing home huge amounts of pork to his home state for years. McDaniel campaigned on cutting federal spending. It appears that “the devil you know” prevailed in this one

*As the “drip-drip-drip” of IRS-Gate and the Lois Lerner Email Saga continues, the GOP was treated to a related victory the other day as (believe it or not) the IRS actually ADMITTED WRONGDOING in leaking the confidential tax return and donor list of a national group which is opposed to redefining the institution of marriage. According to The Daily Signal:

“Two years after activists for same-sex marriage obtained the confidential tax return and donor list of a national group opposed to redefining marriage, the Internal Revenue Service has admitted wrongdoing and agreed to settle the resulting lawsuit.

The Daily Signal has learned that, under a consent judgment today, the IRS agreed to pay $50,000 in damages to the National Organization for Marriage as a result of the unlawful release of the confidential information to a gay rights group, the Human Rights Campaign, that is NOM’s chief political rival.

“Congress made the disclosure of confidential tax return information a serious matter for a reason,” NOM Chairman John D. Eastman told The Daily Signal. “We’re delighted that the IRS has now been held accountable for the illegal disclosure of our list of major donors from our tax return.”

See: http://dailysignal.com/2014/06/24/irs-admits-wrongdoing-pay-50000-leaking-marriage-groups-tax-return/

Why is this important for the Republicans? Because it shows where there's smoke, there’s fire. Intentionally and illegally leaking the tax return and donor list of a Democratic Party political opponents is totally consistent with the type of improper/illegal activity that the IRS is accused of in IRS-Gate. This actual admission of IRS wrongdoing can only serve to further reinforce to the public-at-large that the Dems’ attempts to convince voters about GOP “made up scandals” is nothing more than self-serving propaganda.

*In a ruling announced earlier today:

“The Supreme Court dealt a blow to the powers of the (Obama) presidency Thursday, ruling decisively that President Obama violated the Constitution by going around the Senate to name key labor relations watchdogs.

Resolving a long-standing battle between the two other branches of government, the justices declared invalid key "recess appointments" made by Obama in 2012 when the Senate was holding only pro-forma sessions every three days.”

See: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/06/26/supreme-court-obama-senate-appointments/8528059/

This Supreme Court ruling against Obama’s “non-recess” appointments was UNANIMOUS. The National Review Online points out that this is the TWELFTH UNANIMOUS DEFEAT for President Obama in legal challenges to his actions which have appeared before the Supreme Court since January 2012. According to the article in nationalreview.com:

“President Obama’s team suffered their twelfth unanimous defeat at the Supreme Court in the legal challenge to the so-called recess appointments made when Congress was not actually in recess, a string of defeats that only represents “the tip of the iceberg,” according to Senator Mike Lee (R., Utah).

“Not every case in which the president has exceeded his authority has made it all the way to the Supreme Court,” Lee, a former law clerk to Justice Samuel Alito, told NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE. “The fact that his track record is as bad as it is in the Supreme Court . . . is yet another indication of the fact that we’ve got a president who is playing fast and loose with the Constitution.””

Further:

“[Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas)] issued a report on Obama’s unanimous defeats when the total sat at nine. “If the Department of Justice had won these cases, the federal government would be able to electronically track all of our movements, fine us without a fair hearing, dictate who churches choose as ministers, displace state laws based on the president’s whims, bring debilitating lawsuits against individuals based on events that occurred years ago, and destroy a person’s private property without just compensation,” Cruz wrote in April 2013.

“When President Obama’s own Supreme Court nominees join their colleagues in unanimously rejecting the administration’s call for broader federal power nine times in 18 months, the inescapable conclusion is that the Obama administration’s view of federal power knows virtually no bounds,” he concluded.”

Why is this ruling important to the GOP? Because it reinforces the issue upon which House Speaker John Boehner is basing his proposed lawsuit against President Obama.

See: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2014/06/25/boehner-to-sue-obama-over-executive-orders/

Regarding this action, I say BRING IT ON! The Dem spin machine has already condemned Boehner’s proposed action as “grandstanding” and “playing to the GOP base." To that I say: DUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! That’s politics - and if the positions were reversed, you’d have the Dems suing or proposing impeachment, and the Republicans howling about it.

The Bottom Line: When you’ve got ‘em on the run, you’ve got to keep ‘em on the run. It’s been another good week for the Republicans.

Less than five months until November.

this is one of the major things wrong with the election system, and yes it was wrong when Romney did the same thing. the Dems got 35,000 people to vote for the weaker of the candidates in order to give their candidate a better chance in November. it only showed how much they fear the T.E.A. party.

I saw where the Tea Party candidate was trying to determine whether any Democrats who voted in their primary "crossed over" and also voted for Cochran. Supposedly, that is ILLEGAL. In MS, you can only vote once in the primaries. If you're a registered voter and you don't vote for a candidate running on the ticket of your own party, THEN AND ONLY THEN can you vote for a candidate of the other party. The suspicion is that many of the Democrats who voted for Cochran also voted for one of their own in the primaries. If these votes can be identified, they would ostensibly be thrown out and the election results recalculated.
