Supreme Court reverses decision in CT Firefighters case

In a 5-4 decision authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, the Supreme Court has reversed Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s decision in the CT Firefighters case.

The Court found that there had been discrimination and there was a violation of Title VII.

Those white men and black man on the Supreme Court just didn’t have the same experiences as Judge Sotomayor and consequently saw discrimination where Sotomayor saw justice.

Sonia Soutemayor is the most racist, sexist, hateful Judge in modern times. The fact that Obama wants her as SCOTUS tells me all I need to know about him. I think Obama is a racist too, because he fired Rick Wagoner and Gerald Walpin, both whites, without following the necessary steps to fire them. Just my opinion.

Weekly Republican Address



Good stuff. I'd like to know why the Democrats want to destroy the economy? I know Cap & TAX is just another steaming pile of horse shit in the Democratic Talibans war on the little man. The Democratic Taliban never learns, and never will. I just cannot believe that this country is being run by escapees from the insane asylum. Just pisses me off to no end. That's just my opinion, and I want to know yours. You can tell me in the comments how you feel.

Cap & TAX passes House, on to the Senate

219-212 was the margin.

The 44 House Democrats that voted against the bill: Stark(CA), Davis(AL), Kucinich(OH), Visclosky(IN), Costa(CA), Costello(IL), DeFazio(OR), Barrow(GA), Foster(IL), Arcuri(NY), Donnelly(NY), Kissell(NC), Ortiz(TX), Wilson(OH), Dahlkemper(PA), Rodriguez(TX), Massa(NY), McIntyre(NC), Mitchell(AZ), Nye(VA), Salzar(CO), Altmire(PA), Holden(PA), Kirkpatrick(AZ), Rahall(WV), Tanner(TN), Ross(AR), Berry(AR), Carney(PA), Ellsworth(IN), Herseth-Sandlin(SD), Mollohan(WV), Marshall(GA), Pomeroy(ND), Griffifth(AL), Melancon(LA), Boren(OK), Childers(MS), Davis(TN), Matheson(UT), Bright(AL), Minnick(ID), Edwards(TX), Taylor(MS).

The 8 House Republicans that voted FOR this bill: Smith(NJ), Bono Mack(CA), Lance(NJ), McHugh(NY), Reichert(WA), LoBiondo(NJ), Kirk(IL), Castle(DE).

The Republicans that voted for Cap & TAX are TRAITORS, pure and simple. This thing still has to go through the Senate. I expect it to fail. I have hope that Sen's Evan Bayh, Kent Conrad, Byron Dorgan, Kirsten Gillibrand, Ben Nelson, Bill Nelson, Mary Landireu, Jon Tester, Max Baucus, Russ Feingold, Blanche Lincoln, Arlen Specter, Bob Casey Jr, Jim Webb, Mark Begich, Tim Johnson, and Joe Lieberman to have enough sense not to vote for this. Call these people and tell them not to destroy our economy like this. The situation this country is in reminds me of the words of this song:

NJ-GOV: Christie leads by 12%

Via Strategic Vision:

Chris Christie (R) 51%
Jon Corzine (D-inc) 39%

Spectacular numbers for a Republican running in a moderately Democratic state. I see Christie winning big. Go Christie!

SC-GOV: Sanford admits having an affair in Argentina

The dirtbag comes clean:

Via CNN:
South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday, amid speculation over his whereabouts for the last several days, that he has been engaged in an extramarital affair with an Argentinian woman.
South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford chokes up on Wednesday as he admits to having an affair.

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford chokes up on Wednesday as he admits to having an affair.

"I've been unfaithful to my wife," Sanford told a news conference in Columbia, the state capital. "I developed a relationship with what started as a dear, dear friend from Argentina."

His voice choking at times, Sanford apologized to his wife and four sons, his staff and supporters, and said he would resign immediately as head of the Republican Governors Association. The affair was discovered five months ago, Sanford said.

The South Carolina governor had not been seen in public since June 18. When questioned, Sanford's staff had told media outlets that he was hiking in the Appalachian Trail. But Sanford was spotted Wednesday in Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

The South Carolina governor said he had been in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He said it was his fault for "shrouding this larger trip."

"I'm a bottom-line kind of guy. I'll lay it out, it's going to hurt, and we'll let the chips fall as they may," Sanford said as he spoke with reporters.

Sanford said his affair began as a friendship, but "over this last year, it developed into something much more than that."


I am completely apalled at the sheer ignorance of politicians across the board. Regardless of how long this affair was going on, after he no doubt saw another high profile politician, Nevada Senator John Ensign, admit to an affair, this dirtbag Mark Sanford appears to have not even thought twice about sneaking over to Argentina to visit his other lover. What on earth goes through these people’s minds? Are there any honorable politicians left in this country?

Your thoughts.

Polling Roundup 6/22

NY-GOV: A new Siena College poll taken yesterday evening shows former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani leading Governor David Paterson, but trailing State AG and Village Idiot Andrew Cuomo. The poll also showed Cuomo leading Paterson in the Primary. The results, 57-27 Giuliani over Paterson, 49-40 Cuomo over Giuliani, and 69-19 Cuomo over Paterson. However, Giuliani has stated that he wont run, so these are meaningless.

OH-GOV: A new PPP poll shows DEMOCRATIC Governor Ted Strickland narrowly leading former Congressman John Kasich. The results: 44-42 Strickland. We must never falter on this one, all members of the Democratic Taliban must be beaten. Go Kasich!!!

KS-SEN: A new Survey USA poll shows Moderate Congressman Jerry Moran with a slight lead over Conservative Congressman Todd Tiahrt. The results: 40-38 Moran. Tiahrt losing would be a shot in the head to Conservatism itself, so we absolutely cannot falter on this one. GO TIAHRT!!!

Polling Roundup

OR-GOV: A new Moore Information Poll shows 2 out of 3 Democrats leading GOP Congressman Greg "Cup of Wonder" Walden. The results: former Governor John Kitzhaber up 42-38, Congressman Peter DeFazio up 41-37, and Congressman Walden up 39-35 over State SoS and failed 2002 Senate candidate Bill Bradbury. He's our only hope, Go Cup of Wonder!!!

PA-SEN: New Rasmussen Reports polls show Benedict Arlen in good shape for the Primary and the General. They also tested Specter's Primary opponent, Congressman Joe Sestak, against the GOP candidate Pat Toomey. The results: 51-32 Specter over Sestak, 50-39 Specter over Toomey, and 41-35 Sestak over Toomey. Go Toomey!!!

2012 President: A new Public Policy Poll is showing Obama leading all GOP contenders for the Presidency. The results: 49-41 over Newt Gingrich, 52-40 over Sarah Palin, 50-43 over Mike Huckabee, and 48-40 over Mitt Romney. Go Gingrich!!!

VA-GOV: A new Research 2000 poll shows that the dawn of a new era is arising in VA. The results: AG Bob McDonnell leads State Senator Creigh Deeds 45-44. I can officially proclaim,The Heat is on in this race. Go McDonnell!!!

HI-GOV: A new, and disappointing, Research 2000 poll shows all Democrats leading GOP Lt. Gov. James Aiona. The results: Congressman Neil Abercrombie up 45-36 and Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann up 44-34. The poll also shows Abercrombie leading Hannemann 42-22 in the Democratic Primary. Go Aiona!!!

CSP on Facebook!

Great news, I've just created the official CSP Facebook Group! The group's purpose is to do the same thing that this site does, which is to follow politics from a Conservative standpoint and to follow the Conservative movement.

Hope y'all enjoy it.

HR-2346 Passes

A complete waste of $106 Billion.

Yesterday, the House passed the Iraq and Afghanistan War Funding bill by a margin of 226-202. The bill also included $5 Billion that would go to the International Monetary Fund.

Here are the 32 Democrats that voted no on this bill: Baldwin (WI), Capuano (MA), Conyers (MI), Doggett (TX), Edwards (MD), Ellison (MN), Farr (CA), Filner (CA), Grayson (FL), Grijalva (AZ), Honda (CA), Kaptur (OH), Kucinich (OH), Lee (CA), Lofgren (CA), Massa (NY), McGovern (MA), Michaud (ME), Payne (NJ), Pingree (ME), Polis (CO), Serrano (NY), Shea-Porter (NH), Sherman (CA), Speier (CA), Stark (CA), Tierney (MA), Tsongas (MA), Waters (CA), Watson (CA), Welch (VT), Woolsey (CA).

And here are the 5 Republicans who voted for this bill: Cao (LA), King (NY), Kirk (IL), McHugh (NY), Miller (MI).

We should not be bailing out European national banks.. Those 5 Republicans are of no use to my party, so screw em'.

Audit the Fed Bill Reaches Crucial Benchmark

Congressman Ron Paul’s Federal Reserve Transparency Act, HR 1207, has reached and surpassed the level of 218 cosponsors in the House of Representatives, which means it is now cosponsored by a majority of the members.

The 218th cosponsor was Dennis Kucinich (OH-10), and the bill has since received its 222nd cosponsor.

“The tremendous grass-roots and bipartisan support in Congress for HR 1207 is an indicator of how mainstream America is fed up with Fed secrecy,” said Congressman Paul. “I look forward to this issue receiving greater public exposure.”

Hearings on Federal Reserve transparency are expected within the next month, as part of the Financial Services Committee’s series of hearings on regulatory reform.

Good God.

The House Democrats yesterday evening denied Republicans the opportunity to offer any amendments at all on spending bills.

Any.

This is the first time in the history of America that this has happened.

Senate Republicans should stick up for their friends in the House and shut down the Senate as the House GOP is now pretty much powerless, or they could just make a scene and storm out of the chamber

But hey, if the are going to leave you out of the process, then the House GOP should spend time on the news channels when bills comes up for a vote and tell the American people why you are on the news instead of voting for something you had no say in. Tom Delay wasn’t as bad as the Democrats made him out to be, this is far worse than anything I have seen in my life.

Seriously House Democrats!!!???

We'd all be better off if y'all just drop dead.

WI-GOV: Walker, Neumann LEAD

Via Public Policy Polling:

Scott Walker (R) 48%
Jim Doyle (D-inc) 40%

Mark Neumann (R) 42%
Jim Doyle (D-inc) 41%

All I can say is, wow! I can't believe the number of people that have bolted to the GOP candidates in the past few days. Doyle's approval is at a dismal 34-60, so this might be considered unsurprising. As I stated a few days ago, if Doyle loses, then that will be a referendum on the Democrats control on the Statewide and Federal levels. Go Neumann!

Monday Tidbits

NY-State Senate: Sen. Hiram Monserrate has switched sides, again.

CA-03: A third Democrat has gotten into the race against Rep. Dan Lungren. Bill Slaton, director of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, filed to enter the race, joining Elk Grove City Councilor Gary Davis and Bill Durston.

OH-GOV: John Kasich has received an endorsement from Chuck Norris. Ted Strictland must be cowering in fear over this recent development.

CT-04: It appears that 24-year-old Will Gregory, who claims to be a young, fiscally conservative, socially moderate Republican activist, is supposedly running for the GOP nomination to go up against Rep. Jim Himes. State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney also seems likely to get in the race for the GOP and would bring a bit more experience to the table.

FL-Agriculture Commissioner: Rep. Adam Putnam is trailing State Senator Carey Baker 26-17 in that race! Shocking! Go Putnam!

House Education and Labor Committee: It appears that the three-way race for ranking member of the Education and Labor Committee, to be decided on Wednesday, will come down to Conference Vice Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Rep. John Kline (R-MN). Both Kline and McMorris Rodgers have important ties on the 28 member Steering Committee that will choose the next ranking member. Kline is a strong ally of Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), who has five votes on the panel. Either candidate ought to be good.

WI-GOV, WI-SEN: Doyle, Feingold lead most of the GOP Field.

Via Research 2000:

Jim Doyle (D-inc): 48
Scott Walker (R)
: 36
Undecided
: 16

Jim Doyle (D-inc)
: 49
Mark Neumann (R): 35
Undecided
: 16

Jim Doyle (D-inc)
: 45
Tommy Thompson (R): 47
Undecided
: 8
(MoE: ±4%)


Embarrassingly low poll numbers for Democrat Doyle in a Moderately Democratic state like Wisconsin. His unflattering 43-48 approval rating can't be helping matters either. Former Governor Tommy Thompson remains popular (54-36), but only holds Doyle to a dead heat, which is troubling. Maybe Barack Obama's 14-point margin over John McCain is a signal that Wisconsin's politics have changed, or it could be that voters are just tired of Thompson, who was elected to four terms as Governor. I don't think Thompson runs. However, Doyle may not run either. But if Doyle runs and loses, then that will be a strong signal of displeasure with the Democrats control. More polling tested his replacement(likely Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton) against the GOP.

Barbara Lawton (D)
: 44
Scott Walker (R)
: 35
Undecided
: 21

Barbara Lawton (D)
: 43
Mark Neumann (R)
: 35
Undecided
: 22

Barbara Lawton (D)
: 44
Tommy Thompson (R)
: 46
Undecided
: 10

Lawton currently holds a 35-17 favorability rating, which helps her immensely. The fact that she starts off with a 9% advantage is troubling, however. Research 2000 also did a poll on the WI-SEN race, where Senator Russ Feingold is up for re-election.

Russ Feingold (D-inc)
: 53
Paul Ryan (R)
: 32
Undecided
: 15

Russ Feingold (D-inc)
: 52
Mark Green
: 34
Undecided
: 14

Congressman Paul Ryan has reportedly ruled out a bid for the Senate in 2010. Former Congressman and former US ambassador to Tanzania Mark Green is currently busy working for an anti-malaria non-profit group in DC, so he's out too.

Your thoughts.

VA-GOV: Deeds recieves Primary Bounce

Via Rasmussen:

Creigh Deeds (D)-47%
Bob McDonnell (R)-41%

Not a real surprise, but a 6% lead is still shocking. On a good note, McDonnell leads among Independents 43%-36% and White Voters 49%-36%. I still think McDonnel is going to win in November, which will signal displeasure with the Democrats control. Go McDonnell!

AL-GOV: Davis leads most of GOP field, Sparks leads half.

Via Public Policy Polling:

Bradley Byrne (R)-39%
Artur Davis (D)-35%

Artur Davis (D)-39%
Kay Ivey (R)-31%

Artur Davis (D)-37%
Tim James (R)-35%

Artur Davis (D)-41%
Roy Moore (R)-38%

Bradley Byrne (R)-41%
Ron Sparks (D)-27%

Ron Sparks (D)-33%
Kay Ivey (R)-29%

Tim James (R)-32%
Ron Sparks (D)-32%

Roy Moore (R)-38%
Ron Sparks (D)-36%

We start out with embarrasingly low polling in Alabama of all places against the Democrats. I've got 2 questions, what is a Democrat doing LEADING in Alabama and since when does a Congressman outpoll a Statewide Officer for Governor? Give it time, and look to see the GOP improve against the Center-Left, Populist Democrats here. Go Moore!

VA-GOV Results Thread

Deeds up so far by a vote of 7-4 over McCauliffe. Moran shut out.

7:11 Update: Deeds up 67%-19%-14%. This is SW VA reporting, Deeds' home turf, so this is to be expected.

7:20 Update: 54-23-23 Deeds.

7:24 Update: 52 Deeds, 25 Moran, 23 McCauliffe.

7:33 Update: 53 Deeds, 24 McCauliffe, 23 Moran.

Election Links- VA SoS

VA AP

7:37 Update: 25% in, and it's 51-25-24 Deeds. Not looking good for McCauliffe.

7:41 Update: I may be calling this sooner than I thought. Why?

1. His rural margins are insurmountable. In one particular county he had over 90% of the vote! And we are still waiting upon his home county and many others.
2. He is winning in North VA!
3. He is around tied for winning in the population centers of the tidewater area and winning Henrico county.
4. NoVa can't save Moran. He is polling horribly everywhere else in the state.

7:45 Update: 50-26-24 Deeds.

7:48 Update: 46% in. Deeds +24.

7:57 Update: 56% in. McCauliffe and Moran are sinking like rocks. Note to Democrat candidates in VA; never campaign like a Progressive. As McCauliffe and Moran can attest, that stuff flies over like a lead balloon.

8:02 Update: Conservative State Project projects Creigh Deeds the winner of the VA Democratic Primary, earning the right to lose to McDonnell in November. Go McDonnell! 60% in, and Deeds defeats McCauliffe and Moran 50-26-24.

8:13 Update: Lets see how well Deeds did tonight countywise. Amelia, Charles City, Newport News, Norton, Petersburg and Tazewell counties are the only counties that are not going for Deeds. The rest either are, Too Close To Call, or 0% in.

8:26 Update: I'm done with this thread.

VA-GOV Primaries Open Thread:

Give me your predictions on todays Democratic Gubernatorial Primary in Virginia. Whoever is the closest to the actual results will recieve bragging rights. I say McCauliffe wins 35-33-32 over State Senator Creigh Deeds and State Delegate Brian Moran, which helps GOP State AG Bob McDonnell win in November. Give it a shot.

Update: Low turnout is being reported in the VA Valley. Good news for McCauliffe and Moran because Deeds hails from the VA Valley.
