WND Exclusive: Battling the Mississippi Swamp

Republican Chris McDaniel of Mississippi is attempting to take another bite out the apple, so to speak. This

Chris McDaniel

time he is trying to unseat the incumbent U.S. Senator and establishment hack, Roger Wicker. The date of the Republican primary is June 5.

However, this election should be unnecessary and should never be taking place. If all were right in the world, Chris McDaniel would already be one of Mississippi’s two senators. I’ll get to that in a bit.

That being said – what is the first thing we should do regarding this election? That’s right – see what kind of senator Wicker has been over the 11 years he’s held the office. For this we check out Wicker’s Liberty Score,which tracks the number and percentage of conservative vs. liberal votes he has cast and derives an overall letter grade from them. read more

Ann Coulter: The Manchurian Columnist

from GOP USA:

After reading Ann Coulter’s all-out scathing attack on Chris McDaniel and grassroots conservatives yesterday, the question must be asked: What in the world has happened to her? Has her brain been mysteriously rewired by the political elite, like the vice-presidential candidate in Denzel Washington’s remake of The Manchurian Candidate?

First she takes a big fat fee to be the keynote speaker at a big pro-gay extravaganza, Homocon, then endorses Mitt Romney early in the 2012 campaign, and now she condescendingly attacks the tea party. With friends like this …

Worse, her attack on McDaniel and his camp is wrongheaded and unprincipled in almost every respect.

Coulter begins her column this way: read more

Cochran Update: Alledged Vote Buying!

from RedState:

An audio interview has surfaced in which the interviewee claims that he was to be paid by the Cochran camp to grease voters in the Mississippi GOP Senate runoff election. The audio interview, which coincides with a separate audio recording and batch of evidence produced by the newly launched GotNews.com, a project by Charles C. Johnson, alleges that the Cochran campaign conspired with a Mississippi Reverend to buy the votes of African American voters, who happen to be democrats.

Before I get into the weeds of what is in the audio interview and transcript, which are both below, let me set up the stage a bit. What is alleged to have occurred is illegal and very serious business. Under Mississippi law the alleged crimes could lead to Thad Cochran being removed from the Senate. Everything that follows comes from sources either on the ground in Mississippi, or those working closely with them. read more

Cochran Won Because McDaniel Wouldn’t “Play Ball”

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So I guess conservative Chris McDaniel should just take his ball and go home. There was no foul play. Thad Cochran won fair and square.

Loser McDaniel complaining about how he lost the election is just sour grapes or according to Jamelle Bouie at Slate.com, “McDaniel is saying, ‘I would have won if it weren’t for those meddling liberals’”. He described McDaniel as a “Scooby Doo villain”.

Bouie quotes McDaniel: “There is something a bit strange, there is something a bit unusual, about a Republican primary that’s decided by liberal Democrats”, that, “35,000 Democrats crossed over”.

Well Jamelle, what I find a bit odd is all these liberal Democrats, of which you are undoubtedly one, coming to the defense of some old, white, southern Republican politician. To me, that’s more of an anomaly than black Democrats voting for Cochran.

But Bouie isn’t the only one running to Cochran’s aid. He also quotes Mississippi’s other senator: “As Sen. Roger Wicker, the junior senator from the state said to reporters on Wednesday, ‘Broadening the base of the party? Asking more Mississippians to participate in the ballot that’s going to determine the next Senator? No, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that’”.

Oh, so that’s what this sudden “outreach” to liberal black voters was? read more

Mississippi Republican Corruption

from RedState:

Win or lose on Tuesday, Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran will have forfeited any vestige of honor or integrity he still has and will have capped off a successful political career with a campaign built on distortions, misrepresentations, and outright lies.

At RedState we’ve covered the Cochran campaign’s strategy of encouraging Democrats to vote in the Republican primary (see Democrat join the fight to get Cochran re-elected and Thad Cocrhan’s campaign reeks of flopsweat; all of our Thad Cochran coverage can be found here). read more

Democrats For Cochran in Mississippi?

from Breitbart:

CLEVELAND, Mississippi — “I still think the slaves should get their 40 acres and a mule,” LeeRoy Carter, a black preacher who’s working to get out the vote among black Democrats for Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) for the GOP primary runoff, told Breitbart News on Thursday. “I still think it, honest to God I do. Because we haven’t gotten it.”

Outside the Bolivar County Courthouse, Carter said he is delivering voters for Cochran in the Republican primary runoff but voting for Democrat Travis Childers in the general election in November. Experts argue that voting for a Republican in the runoff but a Democrat in the general election is technically illegal, but the strategy is the linchpin of a desperate bid by Cochran to use Democratic voters to prevail against Tea Party-backed state Senator Chris McDaniel. read more
