Sometimes it Doesn’t Pay to be a TV News Reporter

Nothing to laugh at in this report out of Rhode Island

Don’t expect Obama to call the News Reporter or Reverends Jessee Jackson and Al Sharpton to condemn this or even acknowledge it. Likely they would justify it.

It’s a sad day for us that anyone responds in such a way, calling the reporter “Dumb White Girl” after she sics two dogs on her.

Abortion Activists Target Congresswoman Herrera Beutler

by lewwaters

Jaime HerreraBy now we have heard of the sad news from Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler and her husband, Daniel of their unborn child being diagnosed with Potters Syndrome, a condition most often fatal to the newborn child.

He was a Republican well liked and helped make up the Philosophical Majority in the Senate that has finally gotten bipartisanship working in the legislature. His death left the numbers even with any tie vote set to be broken by the Lt. Governor, Brad Owens, a Democrat.

Many expected to see a swift power play on the Democrats who have been unable to force their agenda through as they have the past and I am very appreciative to see that did not happen. But we were concerned with who would replace Sen. Carrell and how soon it would happen, with hopes of the appointment being expedited to ensure the Coalition Majority remained intact.
