Alison Lundergan Grimes
The media and Democrats, like Alison Lundergan Grimes, continually claim Republicans want Jim Crow discrimination laws to return. Jim Crow is just code language for being a racist. Even Republicans, like U.S. Senator Thad Cochran in Mississippi, have no problem calling fellow Republicans racists.
Last night I thought an unthinkable thought. What if Democrats, like Grimes, are really racists who manipulate blacks for votes. If I had to prove that charge, how would I do it? Here are three points I would make:
1. Grimes screams that voter ID laws are racist, but she refuses to address all the other ID laws that “disenfranchise” minorities. Why the hypocrisy? Grimes refers to voter ID laws as, “… a resurrection of Jim Crows laws, in essence what I equate to a poll tax.” If Grimes believes her own rhetoric, why hasn’t she been screaming about photo ID laws disenfranchising minorities from participating in these activities:
- buying decongestants,
- alcohol purchases,
- buying nail polish at CVS
- banking, mortgages
- hotel rooms,
- rental cars,
- food stamps,
- adoption, even pet adoptions
- Social Security,
Why doesn’t someone ask Grimes why she wants to disenfranchise minorities, without photo IDs, from buying cough medicine for their sick children? Why does she want minority children to suffer just because their parents are too poor to obtain an ID? Where’s her outrage and compassion for “her” constituents? If Grimes was a Republican, she would be labeled a racist for not caring about the plight of minorities.
2. Why does Grimes refuse to say she voted for the first black president of the United States in 2008 and 2012 and why does she refuse to be seen with him at the same lunch counter? Does Grimes consider President Obama the invisible man because he’s black and almost 90% of Kentucky is white? Is she invoking white privilege? Is she promoting her own Jim Crow laws for her campaign and disenfranchising the first black president of the United States? If Grimes was a Republican, she would be labeled a racist for refusing to be seen with a black man.
As a white man, I was embarrassed when I watched Grimes deny President Obama during her Louisville-Courier Editorial Board interview. She sounded like Peter denying Jesus three times. Was race the reason?
While she refuses to associate with Obama, Grimes welcomes the white traveling Clintons to Kentucky to aid in her campaign. Bill Clinton was the only elected president to be impeached, disbarred, lied to a grand jury and lied to the American people.
Bill (War on Women) Clinton understandably cheated on his wife with Gennifer Flowers, Sally Perdue and Monica Lewinsky. Juanita Broaddrick claims she was raped by Clinton. Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey claimed they were sexually harassed. Clinton has attacked more women than Baltimore Raven Ray Rice. The War on Women soldiers want Rice charged with war crimes, however, Grimes wants to campaign with Clinton. I don’t get it either!
Hillary is just as morally corrupt as Bill. Shortly after the Clinton’s took office, she fired the entire White House travel office (Travelgate). She replaced the travel office with her Hollywood friends, Harry and Susan Thomason. In true Clinton corruption style, she ordered a fake FBI investigation on the head of the travel office, Billy Dale, to cover the real reason why she fired the entire office. Dale was acquitted but damn near went bankrupt.
Hillary has lied to the parents of four patriots assassinated in Benghazi about why they were killed. She claimed it was an anti-Muslim video. It was Islamic Extremists. Hillary also mocked blacks during her campaign by performing a demeaning black impersonation.
Grimes rejects the first black president of the United States because she disagrees with maybe 5% of his policies, but she embraces the unethical and immoral Clintons. Why? Racism is the only conclusion.
3. Why doesn’t Grimes want minorities to “enjoy” the right to participate in Democrats number one sacrament – abortions? Yes, teens seeking an abortion must produce a photo ID. Why doesn’t Grimes scream about disenfranchising minorities from abortion? Her own words validate the fact that it’s an undue burden for minorities to acquire an ID. Why must minority teens go into alleys and use coat hangers instead of visiting a “compassionate” abortionist like Dr. Kermit (storing aborted babies’ feet in a jar) Gosnell.
Planned Parenthood’s website states, “Teens must prove their age by bringing one of the following: a state issued photo ID; driver’s license; passport, green card or certificate of naturalization; or school ID with birth.” Is Planned Parenthood a racist group as well? They endorse Grimes and are sending her donations. Why did she accept money from a Jim Crow organization? Why does she only care about minorities during elections? Racism is the only answer.
Ms. Grimes, how does it feel to be treated like a Republican? Racism is an evil charge, but by your definition of racism, you and the Democratic Party are guilty as charged.
LOUISVILLE — On a stage late Thursday morning before several hundred people outside the Muhammad Ali Center, former President Bill Clinton tried to deliver a knockout punch against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on behalf of Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.
Clinton, making his fourth visit to Kentucky for Grimes’ bid to oust the Republican incumbent from his 30-year tenure, painted Grimes as a champion for working people.
He said Kentucky, which he won both times he ran for president, has not had a champion for the working people in the U.S. Senate since Democrat Wendell Ford left.
Grimes will work to increase the minimum wage, lower interest rates on college loans and work to keep coal miners safe and employed, Clinton said.
Clinton spoke for 101/2 minutes, a short speech for him. He was scheduled to attend another rally for Grimes later in the day in Ashland.
The former president made light of his visits, saying that he has been to Kentucky so often that Gov. Steve Beshear said he might have to fill out a tax form on his next visit.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to campaign for Grimes on Saturday in Northern Kentucky and Lexington.
McConnell’s campaign announced that he will fly to several Kentucky cities Monday with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Bowling Green.
You can tell who the Kentucky Conservative voters are this year by their ten mile stare and their bent over posture. They’re suffering from BVS or “Battered Voter Syndrome” and they may need a 12 step program to break free of it.
In this year’s Kentucky Senate race, the Republican Party is playing on Conservatives fears that they absolutely don’t want Alison Lundergan Grimes, Barack Obama’s surrogate, as their Senator. The GOP is threatening voters that if they don’t vote for Mitch McConnell, Grimes will become our Senator and the world will end. This election boils down to voting for McConnell, not because he has earned our vote, or that he would be any different than Harry Reid, but that he simply isn’t Alison Grimes.
Never mind that replacing Harry Reid with Mitch McConnell would simply be trading one tyrant for another. Never mind that Mitch McConnell and the GOP haven’t articulated a credible, detailed plan to undo the damage caused by the past six years of liberal governance. Never mind that Senator McConnell and the Republican leadership have spent the past four years openly attacking their own Conservative base. Never mind that Mitch McConnell gave $65,000 to run ads in Mississippi that called the Conservative base and Chris McDaniel racists and told the black community that we wanted to take away their voting rights. Never mind that Mitch McConnell and other establishment GOP incumbents have received campaign support to the tune of $50 million dollars this cycle to get themselves re-elected, so that they can help Obama pass amnesty. Never mind that Senator McConnell refuses to hold open town hall meetings to hear from Constituents, but grants audiences and influence to those corporations who are willing to pour millions into his campaign. We are supposed to look beyond this and thank our lucky stars that Mitch McConnell isn’t Alison Grimes and that alone should be enough to make us want to vote for him.
The Republicans are trying to convince the conservative voters that if they vote for Senator McConnell, somehow the attacks on the base will stop and he will love them again. The same empty promises an abusive spouse makes after they’ve abused their partner and they’re trying to avoid going to jail.
The only way that a chronically battered spouse can break the cycle of abuse is to send the abuser to jail. The only way the Conservative voters in Kentucky can break the chronic cycle of abuse by Mitch McConnell and the Republican Party of Kentucky is for Senator McConnell to lose his job, thus breaking his hold on the state party and the Conservative base.
While I’m not advocating for anyone in the Conservative base to actually vote for Mrs. Grimes, I am asking Conservatives in Kentucky to think long and hard before they pull the lever for Senator McConnell. When an arrogant career politician like Mitch McConnell refuses to hold open and unscripted town hall meetings to hear from his constituents, doesn’t listen to his constituents, and then automatically EXPECTS our vote, it’s time to show him some tough love and NOT send him back to Washington.
If we don’t have the courage to stand up to an abusive politician who doesn’t deserve our vote, we can only expect more of the same abuse. Don’t vote for McConnell out of fear or because he isn’t Alison Grimes. McConnell has done nothing to deserve your vote and everything to not deserve it. Don’t allow McConnell and the GOP to strip you of your right to vote for a politician who has earned and deserves it. This year, please consider sending a strong and clear message to Mitch McConnell and the GOP. Don’t vote for either McConnell or Grimes. After 36 years of McConnell, its time to break the cycle of abuse.
Don’t be a battered voter.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
I’m tired of wars, especially phony ones. Democrats, like Alison Lundergan Grimes, constantly whine about the Republican Party’s so-called War on Women. How many women have been killed by Republican soldiers? None!
In the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, Democrats declared War on Babies & Minorities. How many babies have been murdered by Democrat assassins? The official count is over 50 million and counting. To put that number in perspective, Hitler murdered 6 million Jews.
Kentucky U.S. Senate candidate, Alison Lundergan Grimes (D), has declared she will dedicate her political career to advancing the War on Babies & Minorities. Grimes is pro-abortion. She is supported by Planned Parenthood’s Death Camps who are donating more money to her campaign than any other Democrat. She is also endorsed by the radical Emily’s List who supports taxpayer abortions, even late-term abortions.
I’m surprised Grimes’ campaign slogan isn’t “Copulate, Terminate, Celebrate.”
Grimes is quoted as saying, “I am a practicing Catholic but I’m also for separation of church and state. I am supportive of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade. And I think that this is the kind of choice that has to be up to the woman, her God and her doctor.” She further stated she was “pro-choice down the line on abortion.”
In 2014, a Marist poll found, “67 percent of Kentucky residents think abortion should be illegal.” Doesn’t that mean that 67 percent of Kentuckians believe a vote for Grimes should be illegal?
I was shocked to learned the story behind Planned Parenthood? It’s more violent and disturbing than the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan.
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood in 1916 to solve the “Negro Problem.” She was a racist. She was evil. She was Adolph Hitler in a dress. She believed in a concept called eugenics. Eugenics is the cleansing of society of the undesirable people who serve no value in Sanger’s insane world. She believed sterilization was needed to stop the undesirables from multiplying and she also believed that society must “weed the garden” of valueless humans. Unfortunately, she wasn’t talking about Michael Moore types. She wanted to eliminate minorities.
Sanger decided to mask her true intentions of “societal cleansing” by selling the public that she was a “compassionate crusader” for poor women by providing access to reproductive services. She lied!
Here are a few quotes from Sanger:
“Stop the multiplication of the unfit.”
“A free race cannot be born of slave mothers.”
“Breeding like weeds,” (Referring to impoverished, non-white women).
Sanger attacked programs that provided “medical and nursing facilities to slum mothers” because they “facilitate the function of maternity” when “the absolute necessity is to discourage it.”
“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
“Article 1: The purpose of the American Baby Code shall be to provide for a better distribution of babies… and to protect society against the propagation and increase of the unfit. Article 4: No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit… Article 6: No permit for parenthood shall be valid for more than one birth.”
In 1926, Sanger addressed the women’s auxiliary of the Democrats KKK concerning her eugenics vision. I think she wore a white hoodie.
In 1939, Sanger said, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social service backgrounds and with engaging personalities … We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”
We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.
In 2012, Planned Parenthood received a record $542 million from taxpayers or 45 percent of their budget. That’s a budget increase of 49 percent since 2010.
The Susan B. Anthony List published the following statement, “In 2012, abortions made up 93.8 percent of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 5.6 percent (19,506) and 0.6 percent (2,197), respectfully. For every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood performed 149 abortions.”
If there is one industry that poor and minorities disproportionately patronize, it’s Planned Parenthood. Did you know that 80 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority and poor neighborhoods? While blacks comprise of only 13 percent of the population, they account for 37 percent of abortions and 69 percent of abortions are performed on economically disadvantaged mothers.
Liberal Democrats like Jane Fonda, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi have received the Margaret Sanger Award for their tireless effort in the War on Babies & Minorities. Democrats, like Grimes, are cowards. They’ve declared war on the most vulnerable among us, babies who can’t defend themselves.
I just don’t understand how a Catholic like Grimes can support such an evil institution like Planned Parenthood that assassinates over 300,000 babies per year.
There were skirmishes but little new ground was broken as U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes delivered their well-worn attack lines to each other’s faces Monday night on statewide television.
In the only scheduled televised debate of Kentucky’s U.S. Senate election, McConnell continued his central campaign theme of tying Grimes to the national Democratic Party and President Barack Obama, while Grimes assailed McConnell as having “gone Washington” and being beholden to the Koch brothers.
There were no obvious major missteps by either candidate as they debated for nearly 60 minutes on KET’s Kentucky Tonight program, other than those they have already endured.
Grimes again refused to say whether she voted for Obama in 2008 or 2012, saying that as the state’s chief elections officer, she has a duty to protect the “sanctity” of the ballot box and Americans’ right to a secret ballot.
That is a change from when Grimes told the show Ballot Bomb, a KET program set to air later this month, that she voted for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.
For his part, McConnell held fast to his opposition to the federal health care law though host Bill Goodman worked hard to explore whether McConnell would support keeping Kynect, the health insurance exchange Kentucky implemented under the federal law.
The senator referred to Kynect as a website that is being funded by a federal grant.
When Goodman asked if McConnell would support continuing Kynect, McConnell said: “That’s fine. Yeah, I think it’s fine to have a website.”
On Tuesday, both McConnell and Grimes will head to different parts of the state to try and sell their closing arguments.
Kentucky will be home to one of the most important races in the country this election cycle as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is up for re-election for his sixth term. In a new Rasmussen poll released on Monday, McConnell runs dead even with his Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes with each getting 42%. The big news is that his Republican primary challenger Matt Bevin actually leads Grimes by six points.
President Obama lost Kentucky in 2012 by 23 points and 116 of 120 counties. Mitch McConnell has consistently hovered around similar approval ratings as President Obama at 31% in the state. These recent polls are not looking good for the Senate Minority Leader. Kentuckians are not only fed up with Obama’s failures, but they seem to be waking up to McConnell’s old tricks as well. They simply do not believe in Mitch McConnell any longer.
McConnell’s primary challenger, Matt Bevin, is starting to get some national attention, which the McConnell campaign certainly didn’t expect. They did not take the conservative businessman from Louisville very serious early on and that may prove to be disastrous for the re-election efforts of the veteran Senator. McConnell once led Bevin by 52 points when he first announced his run, but that lead has dwindled to 20 points recently.That is major with an incumbent and Senate Minority Leader. There is still a road to climb, but Matt Bevin is surging fast and closing the gap.
The conservative grassroots powerhouse FreedomWorks PAC recently announced their endorsement of Matt Bevin and the Madison Project along with their endorsement has opened up five offices throughout the state to help get out the vote for Matt Bevin. The tide seems to be turning in Kentucky and possibly toppling on Mitch McConnell.
“Now more than ever, we need strong fiscal conservatives who will fight to cut spending on the front lines, not the sidelines. Matt Bevin is a great upgrade for Kentuckians who are serious about transparency, fiscal responsibility and accountability in government.” – FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe
Matt Bevin is starting to resonate with many Kentuckians. It was only a matter of time because once you hear this man speak, you instantly think about Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Yeah, he’s like those guys. Kentucky needs a lot less Mitch McConnell and much more of Matt Bevin. 30 years is long enough of McConnell. If someone has been in congress since the Cincinnati Reds last won a World Series, then it is certainly time for them to go home. Mitch McConnell doesn’t have to necessarily go home, but he does need to get the heck out of Washington!
“These poll numbers are an accurate reflection of what I see and hear every day traveling across the Commonwealth. Kentuckians have had enough of career politicians like Mitch McConnell who compromise our conservative principles and instead vote for Obamacare, bailouts, amnesty and tax increases.
“It is increasingly clear that the voters of Kentucky are suffering from McConnell fatigue. My candidacy is offering conservative Republicans a chance to save this Senate seat on May 20.” – Matt Bevin.
The 2014 Kentucky Senate race has officially started as a barrage of jabs was thrown at the 133rd Fancy Farm annual picnic on Saturday. Fancy Farm, Kentucky with a population of 450 hosts this annual political fundraising picnic every year on the grounds of St. Jerome Catholic Church. This small town in Western Kentucky has hosted this event since 1880 serving up great southern barbecue and hearing from many prominent Kentucky political leaders.
This year the battle was certainly on with speeches from Kentucky Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) and his opponent Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D). Also speaking was Matt Bevin who is challenging McConnell in the Republican primary.
Fancy Farm was the start of one of the most anticipated races in the country and thousands of people showed up in support of their candidate and to soak up the ambiance of Western Kentucky and all that is Fancy Farm. Supporters of both McConnell and Grimes were bussed in from all across the state to take part in this event, which could have huge implications on the political scene nation-wide.
The crowds were separated with Democrats on one side of the stage and Republicans on the other. Everyone had their political signs and cowbells ready as they shouted either pro or anti remarks at the candidates. It got started off with a speech from Senator McConnell who spoke very passionate about Kentucky and how President Obama’s policies have hurt the state and the entire country. He came off as very charismatic and focused on winning this re-election bid as he avoided any attacks directly towards his Democratic opponent. McConnell had a huge support of Kentuckians and all you could hear were chants of ‘We Want Mitch’, ‘Go Home Alison’, and the constant amount of cheers he received from his remarks. He excited the crowd and showed his age will not keep him from proving to Kentuckians he is best fit for the job.
“We’re not just choosing who’s going to represent Kentucky in the Senate,” he said. “We’re going to decide who’s going to run the Senate. And here’s the choice: Is the Senate gonna be run by an Obama ‘yes man’ who believes coal makes you sick, or the guy you’re lookin’ at?”
Many Kentuckians and others are wondering if Senator McConnell is going to get behind Senator Mike Lee and other prominent Republicans and sign the letter to defund Obamacare. This was not addressed, but will certainly come up quite often in the days ahead.
When it was time for Alison Grimes to speak, she approached the podium amid a deafening chant of ‘Team Mitch’ as the McConnell supporters drowned out the applause she received from her side. She began right away with attacking McConnell and provided nothing more than Obama rhetoric. She spoke about McConnell’s long time in the Senate saying he did nothing but obstruct and then accused McConnell of playing a key role in the “disease of dysfunction” in Washington. She spoke about minimum wage, women’s rights, and equal pay as well. She did have a good remark that will go over well with her supporters regardless if she comprehends why things in Congress are passed or not.
“If doctors told Sen. McConnell he had a kidney stone, he’d refuse to pass it.”
Grimes will surely be a formidable opponent for McConnell, which he should not take lightly as the Democrats are focused on taking it to him in order to win a key seat in the Senate. Grimes is a good speaker and a new face, but she is doing nothing more than speaking Barack Obama talking points. On the other hand, Mitch McConnell has not been viewed as a popular Senator and many may think he has overstayed his welcome in the Senate. This only means that this definitely will be the race to watch as these two battle each other for Kentuckian’s vote in 2014. So, with a successful and big Fancy Farm this year, next year should be even bigger as the candidates reach the home stretch.
