TImes-Picayune Endorses Mary Landrieu in LA


Endorsement from the TP basically just points out a long list of times Democrat Mary Landrieu brought home the bacon for Louisiana. They ignore her vote for Obamacare, ignore all the other times she voted with the Democrats and ignore her recent comments about President Obama being unpopular in Louisiana because of race.

"Mary Landrieu has stood up for Louisiana time and again during her 18 years in the U.S. Senate. She fought for our fair share of oil and gas lease revenues. She made sure our communities received vital disaster aid after Hurricane Katrina and the levee breaches, after Hurricane Rita, after Gustav, after Isaac. She understood the need to keep flood insurance premiums affordable long before others in Congress came to that realization.

Her opponent is trying to distract voters from Sen. Landrieu's accomplishments in the Senate. He shouldn't be allowed to get away with that.

The most important question in the Dec. 6 runoff election is who would best represent the interests of Louisiana residents in Washington. The answer is clear: Mary Landrieu.

Her Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act, which passed in 2006, achieved something Louisiana leaders had tried for decades to do: Require the federal government to give our state and other energy-producing states a significant share of revenues from offshore drilling. By 2017, the act will provide an estimated $500 million each year for restoring Louisiana's coast.

Those revenues will benefit Louisianians for generations to come and help families hold onto the land they love"

Missouri Lt. Governor: Grand Jury Decision Was Announced Late Monday Night Because Prosecutor Was Worried About Leaks From Holder Justice Dept.

Why announce the grand jury decision late at night when violent protesters could go out and commit mayhem under the cover of darkness? Which they did? Lt. Governor Peter Kinder of Missouri says it was because the St. Louis County Prosecutor was worried about the Holder Justice Dept. leaking the decision. He was on the Sean Hannity Show tonight. He also reveals that the National Guard was eager to go into Ferguson Monday night, but Governor Nixon said no, possible because of pressure from the Obama White House

Hannity: "I gotta believe that the Obama White House had been given a heads up not only that a decision had been rendered by the grand jury but what that decision was. No?"

Lt. Governor Peter Kinder: "I am now hearing from Democratic sources in  St. Louis, who are reliable that (Prosecutor Robert) McCulloch made the announcement when he did because he was worried about leaks from the Holder Justice Department. In other words, they would not have announced it at 8:00 p.m. Central Monday night but for pending leaks that were going to come out from the Feds"

Here's Lt. Governor Kinder, who is furious with Democratic Governor Nixon here.

Romney Leads 2016 Republican Field

He's said he's not running in 2016, other say he might. Whatever he decides, he's at the top of a few 2016 Republican polls, including this new one from Quinnipiac by a wide margin 




thehill
Mitt Romney has the edge among possible 2016 presidential contenders in a survey of GOP voters released Wednesday, while Hillary Clinton enjoys a huge lead among Democrats.

Romney took the top spot with 19 percent when Republicans were asked whom they would vote for if the primary were held now, according to the Quinnipiac University poll.

From Nov. 18-23, 1,623 registered voters nationwide were surveyed with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.  Eleven percent of Republicans said that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) would be their pick.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and conservative author and neurosurgeon Ben Carson each drew shares of 8 percent.

Romney has particularly high name recognition because he has run for president twice before, something that may help him in early polls. He would tie Clinton in a hypothetical matchup.

Clinton demolishes her Democratic competition in a proposed primary, taking 57 percent to Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-Mass.) 13 percent and Vice President Biden's 9 percent

Video: Passengers Push Plane on Runway After Landing Gear Ices Up



A bunch of passengers left their seats to give their frozen plane a push at a snowbound airport in Siberia.

That was the situation at Igarka Airport earlier this week where temperatures of minus 50 Celsius left a Tupolev Tu-134 aircraft stranded on the runway.

Passengers rallied to the rescue when oil in the plane's landing gear iced up, according to UTair, the airline whose livery the plane carries.

According to the Komsomolskaya Pravda website, there were cries of "Let's go!" as two rows of passengers, dressed in heavy coats and thick gloves, each took a wing and apparently began shoving the aircraft into position



 

Video- Ferguson Thug Protesters Flip, Then Set Fire To Police Car



A small group of protesters began breaking the windows of a police cruiser on South Florissant Street, the scene of many of the protests that followed the fatal shooting in August of Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old, by Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson, who is white. The group tried but failed to overturn the car, but someone tossed an incendiary device at it, and the vehicle caught fire.

About a dozen police cars responded, arriving at the scene from two directions. An announcement went out over a loudspeaker: "This has turned into an unlawful protest. You must disperse or you will be arrested, even media."

Schumer: President Obama and Dems were Wrong to Pass Obamacare Instead of Trying to Fix The Economy (Video)

Americans weren't looking for changes in health care...


Sen. Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that Democrats were wrong to pass Obamacare.

“Democrats lost the opportunity the American people gave them. We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem–health care reform,” Schumer said.

Schumer conceded that health care was an important issue, but it was not the primary issue.

“The plight of uninsured Americans and the hardships caused by unfair insurance company practices certainly needed to be addressed, but it was not the change we were hired to make,” Schumer said. “Americans were crying out for the end to the recession, for better wages and more jobs, not changes in health care.”

If Democrats had done the math, they would have realized that health care reform affected just a small portion of the electorate: 5 percent.

MSNBC Contributor: Michael Brown Latest 'Casualty' In 'War on Black Boys'



newsbusters
On the November 24 edition of Hardball, MSNBC contributor Michelle Bernard called for the federal Justice Department to "get involved" in prosecuting Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson regardless of the outcome of the St. Louis County grand jury investigation.

Rehashing a charge she leveled earlier this year, Bernard insisted that Brown was the latest "casualty" of a nationwide "war on black boys," and castigated conservatives who support "state's rights" by suggesting that the notion was simply an excuse for racist, unequal treatment of blacks by law enforcement
