Last January, National Review Editor Rich Lowry joined a host of others in denouncing Barack Obama’s use of elementary school children at a press conference to unveil his gun control agenda, calling the spectacle “stupidly exploitative” and “infantile.” A newly-released ad from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, however, suggests some in…
Delaware Right to Life has erected six billboards this autumn, one directly across the street from the Wilmington Planned Parenthood.
The billboards give a simple but sobering message to abortion clinic workers: “Don’t let your job put you in prison.”
This message is ripe in a state where two former Planned Parenthood employees testified earlier this year about health violations and inappropriate behavior by an abortionist they observed at their clinics.
Dueling ads on gun rights by the National Rifle Association and a group backed by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg have joined the onslaught of campaign advertising in Virginia’s elections this year.
The title of the piece at the pro-abortion Thinkprogress.org site is “Abortion Stigma Hurts Women, But Here’s How We Can Start Getting Rid of it.” And the immediate form that this attempt to destigmatize abortion is something called a “1 in 3 Week of Action.”
It’s intended “to get the conversation going,” Tara Culp-Ressler tells us.
The official emails for the Texas gubernatorial campaign of abortion darling Wendy Davis thanking donors contained a major mistake — sending people to the web site of an opposition campaign.
Politico has more on the story:
Wendy Davis announced her campaign for governor in Texas today and the irony of her support for aborting babies after viability apparently is lost — on her.
Candid photography enthusiast and mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner today announced his plan for New York City police officers to wear tiny lapel cameras to record their interactions with residents, but it was Weiner’s door-to-door trek later in the day that had us wishing he was wearing one, just this once. Weiner was accompanied by a number of reporters as he knocked on apartment doors in Harlem.
LONDON (AP) — Britain’s governing Conservatives have hired Jim Messina, President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager, to advise them ahead of the 2015 general election.
Messina was Obama’s national chief of staff for the 2008 presidential campaign and the president’s campaign manager in 2012. His organizational flair and social media strategy have been credited for helping secure Obama’s re-election.
For those of you who were wondering just what it takes to be Anthony Weiner’s intern, wonder no more. Take a long, hard look at these flyers popping up all over New York City:
‘No cops.’ ‘No gag reflex.’ ‘Some cameras.’ The ads may be fake, but they ring true. Painfully true.
Do not let your Senator fall for his superficial changes!

Mitt Romney Breaks Post-Election Silence in Fox News Interview: Campaign Was Like a ‘Roller Coaster’
NEW YORK (TheBlaze/AP) — Fox News’ Chris Wallace has landed the first post-election interview with defeated Republican nominee Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann.
The Left has been taking pot shots at Bob Woodward for a week over his stance on the sequester, but following Woodward’s claim on CNN tonight that a senior White House official told him he’d “regret” calling out the president on “moving the goal posts,” Obama’s water carriers had to kick into high gear their campaign to discredit Woodward.
Coming spin: "Woodward's strange shift to right-wing talking points risks his reputation as one of the great American journalists," etc.—

It’s a vast oversimplification, but it works. The sequestration cuts scheduled to take effect next week were split down the middle between defense and non-defense spending to motivate both Democrats and Republicans to find alternative spending cuts. The GOP certainly wouldn’t allow defense programs to be cut, would it? Social programs, sure. Just perform a quick Google search of “sequestration cuts” and you’ll find headlines like “11 Drastic Sequester Cuts Threatening Average Americans” and “‘Meat Cleaver’ Sequestration Cuts to Hit Teachers, FBI Agents.”
The 2012 campaign proved that the Democrats and President Obama have a firm grasp on Internet outreach, not to mention an pretty hearty appetite for harvesting email addresses by any means necessary. Millions of Americans have chosen to continue their love affair with the 44th president into his second term, but more and more are wishing he were a little less clingy when it comes to email.
THESE OBAMA EMAILS GOTTA CHILL—
