Tea Party Says ‘Liberals’ Face Rising Anti-Obama Tide

Boston Tea Party

Many problems with the latest Tea Party piece.

One can go on, but many Veteran Today readers eat their stuff up, so from the Tea Party Newsletter …

WASHINGTON – Democrats and Republicans are framing the elections in starkly different terms, with GOP strategists painting it as a national referendum on President Barack Obama and the party in power, and Democrats working feverishly to make all politics local.

The outcome will help determine whether Republicans take control of the House, the Senate or both. It also may profoundly affect Obama’s agenda for the next two years.
Republicans have every reason to try to nationalize the Nov. 2 election, when voters will fill all 435 House seats, 36 Senate seats and 37 governorships. Democrats succeeded in the elections of 2006 and 2008 by focusing on President George W. Bush’s tenure, Republicans’ performance in Congress and the Iraq war; the GOP hopes to turn the tables now.
Polls show significant discontent with policies linked to Obama and congressional Democrats, including rising deficits and bank bailouts. The latest AP-GfK survey found that 60 percent of those questioned think the nation is heading in the wrong direction, and 73 percent disapprove of the Democratic-led Congress.
Polls also show significantly higher energy and enthusiasm among conservative voters than liberals.
GOP strategists believe they can sustain this wave and ride it to victory if they can focus voters’ attention on overarching complaints against Obama and Democratic lawmakers: government overreach, big spending, Washington intrusion.
“It’s going to be a national election,” said Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, head of the Republican committee overseeing House races. He said Republicans will run on broad themes, such as arguing that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s agenda for health care, energy and labor unions is destroying jobs.
Even if Pelosi, D-Calif., isn’t well-known to some voters, Sessions said, “I think they’re aware that America is under one-party rule.”
Democrats are pushing a very different narrative.
The election will be “a choice between two candidates in every congressional district,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, the Democrats’ counterpart to Sessions.
Van Hollen pointed to the May 18 special House election in Pennsylvania, where Democrat Mark Critz surprised pundits by easily defeating Republican Tim Burns. Republicans “made the election all about Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi,” Van Hollen said, while Critz stuck to bread-and-butter issues such as job creation and his deep familiarity with the district.
Republicans, stung by the loss, note that Critz rejected Obama’s health care and energy initiatives, which most congressional Democrats supported and must defend this fall.
Nonetheless, Democrats see the Critz victory as a blueprint for Election Day. They praise his campaign for reaching out to voters early to learn of their concerns, which shaped follow-up literature and calls.
Democratic officials say they are recruiting thousands of volunteers nationwide for an unusually early and aggressive voter-targeting effort. If local supporters talk to undecided voters about local candidates and concerns, these Democrats say, it can take the edge off Republicans’ bid to nationalize the election and focus on Washington.
Of course, Democratic candidates can’t avoid the national issues that agitate many voters, such as health care and deficit spending. But they have a better chance to make their case, Van Hollen said, if voters see the nominee as a local person with community ties.
“It’s important to engage voters directly and personally, early on, and not just trying to call them up at the last minute,” Van Hollen said.
That’s what freshman Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Va., is trying to do in his tough re-election campaign. His votes for Obama’s health care bill and cap-and-trade carbon-reduction bill make him a White House favorite, and a top GOP target.
Perriello’s latest TV ad mirrors Van Hollen’s philosophy: Make a personal, even folksy appeal to voters, and focus on job creation rather than sensitive issues such health care. Perriello mentions “jobs” six times in a humorous 30-second spot that shows him stepping in cow manure and spilling coffee on himself as he promotes new jobs on dairy farms, construction sites, police departments and elsewhere.
“No one will work harder to bring jobs to Virginia,” he says.
His Republican challenger, Robert Hurt, is following his own party’s advice to nationalize the election. His campaign Web site warns that “Pelosi & Co. and their wealthy liberal supporters around the country are pouring money into Perriello’s campaign coffers.”
Curiously, Democrats and Republicans alike seem to be treating Obama warily, at least for now.
Sessions, the House GOP campaign chief, focused his criticisms not on the president but on Pelosi, as have several other Republican candidates. Obama’s personal approval ratings hover at about 50 percent, while his ratings for handling key issues tend to be lower.
Many Democrats seem inclined to hand Obama a rather narrow mission: wooing the millions of young and minority voters who rallied to his side in 2008 but who may skip the less-exciting 2010 midterm elections. Obama’s political group, Organizing for America, “will focus on first-time Obama voters,” Van Hollen said.
As president, Obama cannot sit out the election, and lately he has shown relish for the challenge.
At a recent Wisconsin event, Obama mocked senior Republican lawmakers for apologizing to BP after the Gulf oil spill and for minimizing the impact of the recession.
Republicans, Obama said, “think that our economy will do better if we just let the banks or the oil companies or the insurance industry make their own rules. They still believe that – even after the Wall Street crash, even after the BP oil well blew – that we should just keep a hands-off attitude.”
Sessions is unimpressed. Voters are sick of the Democrats’ big-government approach, he said, and neither presidential speeches nor early targeting efforts will make them less receptive to the GOP’s call for change.
“We will have a very large bandwith of people who we are able to speak with,” Sessions said.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
