On the Mark Levin Show Thursday night, Levin spoke about the importance of the upcoming senatorial races because they will determine whether Harry Reid will remain as Majority Leader. He read a letter from Dr. Milton Wolf, the Reagan Conservative who was defeated by incumbent Pat Roberts in the Kansas primary.
In his letter Dr Wolf implored Kansans, and by extension all Americans, to vote Republican and to dethrone Harry Reid, so that the true Constitutional Conservatives in the Senate will have some real power. He then emphatically went on to say that after the elections, we must hold all Republicans’ feet to the fire and that he would be out in front leading this effort.

Published on Oct 28, 2014: Charles Krauthammer told Bill O’Reilly tonight that it should be unbelievably easy for the Republicans to win the Senate because of the incompetence of the Democratic administration on issues like the VA, the botched Obamacare rollout, and their handling of the Ebola crisis. And so, Krauthammer said, “Given the climate… if the GOP can’t win back the Senate in a climate like this, maybe the party ought to look for another country.”
O’Reilly asked if a PR firm would be enough to help out the GOP’s image leading into 2016. Krauthammer argued it’s not enough for the GOP to simply rebrand and come up with a catchy new slogan.
He said they need to “show the country in the next two years if they control two houses of Congress, that you have a governing agenda.” In other words, it’s perfectly fine to be the “party of no” now, but if they take the Senate, they need to show they can actually lead. Otherwise 2016 won’t look so hot.

As stated in BizPac Review-
With two years left of Barack Obama, the black communities are facing the Democratic party head on in the face of the upcoming midterms. Rebel Pundit released a video of Chicago activists Paul McKinley, Mark Carter, Joseph Watkins and Harold “Noonie” Ward bringing a powerful message to black voters.
A long list of heartfelt grievances about how blacks have been abused by Democrats can be summed up by one of the men, “They force us into a life of welfare. We don’t want no welfare.”
Unfortunately many are upset because they still don’t think they are getting a large enough piece of the pie, but at least it is a start to allow other ideas to be heard.

As expected, the President will likely use his pen and cellphone after the Nov 4th elections to grant his long awaited Amnesty promise. Many of us in the Gainesville Tea party are all about allowing work visas to almost all comers who have jobs awaiting them BUT that can only work if :
-Get rid of the welfare state
-Ensure that the BORDERS are secure
-IMMIGRATION laws are followed.
Even the progressives may soon see the day that they regret pushing for this agenda.
I am all in favor of giving our Law Enforcement all the help they need to combat the criminal element but do we really need an Armored vehicle with 24 cops to collect $80,000 from an elderly man?

Here is a great youtube video sent to us by Terry Martin-Back about County Elections. Beyond being a great patriot who served his country in the military, Terry is a local Realtor and contractor who continues to serve the community.

Maybe the following articles will motivate those so called Conservatives who like to sit home and bitch instead of getting active. That goes all the way from D.C. to your local elections.
First article by ED MORRISSEY-
These results, from a Sept. 25-30 Gallup poll, demonstrate that despite what appears to be a lower profile this year, the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party — about 18% of all national adults — remains a powerful force, given their higher interest in the election and higher motivation to vote. This is not a new phenomenon; Republican Tea Party supporters gave the 2010 midterm elections more thought and were more motivated to vote than other Republicans, although all voters in general were paying more attention that year.

Here is a second article by Susan Crabtree in the Washington Examiner-
Here are a few words from Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-Texas. “All around the country, and in Texas particularly, there’s just a powerful move to get out more liberals than conservatives. Too many conservatives have stayed home. It should have been clear to them that it would be dangerous for America if they stayed home. We’ve got to turn that around.”
And yes, dangerous it was. Please read the rest of the story-
So much for free speech – You remember, the First Amendment
by Warner Todd Huston – 25 Oct 2014
As the media prepared to vacate newsrooms for the weekend, Democrats snuck in a last minute proposal that the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) be allowed to heavily regulate political content on internet sites such as Youtube, blogs, and the Drudge Report.
Obama FEC Vice Chairperson Ann M. Ravel announced late on Friday that the FEC was preparing new regulations to give itself control over videos, Internet-based political campaigns, and other content on the web. She insisted that, “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long overdue.”
This snap decision came after the FEC deadlocked 3-3 over whether or not an anti-Obama Internet campaign in Ohio had violated FEC campaign disclosure rules. The videos were placed for free on Youtube and were not paid advertising, but they also did not disclose who made them.
Until now, videos and other political content that is not posted for a fee are unregulated by the FEC. Only paid advertising is regulated under election rules. It is this that the Democrats want to change.
“FEC Chairman Lee E. Goodman, a Republican, said if regulation extends that far, then anybody who writes a political blog, runs a politically active news site, or even a chat room could be regulated,” [bold type: mine] the Washington Examiner reported on October 24.

Gainesville Tea Party Debate for County Commission District 4

Thursday night on Fox News, Charles Krauthammer predicted that it would only take “a couple more cases like Mr. Duncan” flying to the United States from West Africa with Ebola for the president to back down from his no travel ban position.
But if Judicial Watch’s sources are correct, Obama’s open door policy for people coming from Ebola infected countries, may creak open a little wider to allow the transfer of non-US citizens infected with the disease into the country for treatment.
It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients. The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.
The plan – which may not even be legal – has been kept from Congress even though it should require the approval of Congress.

Story via Breitbart.com.
From Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jundal:
“Consider the Prevention and Public Health Fund, a new series of annual mandatory appropriations created by Obamacare. Over the past five years, the CDC has received just under $3 billion in transfers from the fund. Yet only 6 percent—$180 million—of that $3 billion went toward building epidemiology and laboratory capacity. Especially given the agency’s postwar roots as the Communicable Disease Center, one would think that “detecting and responding to infectious diseases and other public health threats” warrants a larger funding commitment.
Instead, the Obama administration has focused the CDC on other priorities. While protecting Americans from infectious diseases received only $180 million from the Prevention Fund, the community transformation grant program received nearly three times as much money—$517.3 million over the same five-year period.
The CDC’s website makes clear the objectives of community transformation grants. The program funds neighborhood interventions like “increasing access to healthy foods by supporting local farmers and developing neighborhood grocery stores,” or “promoting improvements in sidewalks and street lighting to make it safe and easy for people to walk and ride bikes.” Bike lanes and farmer’s markets may indeed help a community—but they would do little to combat dangerous diseases like Ebola, SARS or anthrax.”
Makes one wonder who really is behind this website ranking Alexa.com…
“How could every major alternative website that challenges the mainstream, establishment view of Washington and the world be experiencing a drop-off in readership while their counterparts on the other side of the political spectrum are gaining readers? It appears unlikely, yet that’s exactly what happened last month, according to Alexa.com, which measures web traffic and ranks websites from the most popular to the least popular. Alexa rankings are important because they are among a handful of measurement tools used by companies when deciding where to spend their advertising dollars.”
The Drudge Report, WND, Breitbart, Fox News, the Blaze, Newsmax, CNSNEWS, the Daily Caller, Infowars and Natural News are all plunging in popularity, according to Alexa’s rankings. At the same time, pro-government sites like the Daily Kos, ThinkProgress, Media Matters, MSNBC, NPR.org and Democracy Now! are all rising in popularity, according to Alexa.
You have just got to see this video of Rev Jesse Jackson being interviewed by Ben Swann. No matter what Swann asks, the good Rev shows that reality and logic are irrelevant when it comes to getting a point across.
