Republicans now see opportunity in more than a dozen 2014 Senate races

WH
FROM FOX NEWS
March 14, 2014: Former Massachusetts GOP Sen. Scott Brown in Nashua, N.H.AP
Washington Republicans say they are now competitive in more than a dozen states this year in their quest to take control of the Senate, as they and outside supporters continue to highlight problems with ObamaCare and the Democratic incumbents who backed the law.  
Kansas GOP Sen. Jerry Moran, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, told reporters Friday his party has “strong credible candidates” in races in “10, 11, 12, 13 states."
"The map and opportunities have expanded dramatically in a year, in part because of the consequences of the Affordable Care Act," he said on a conference call that marked the fourth anniversary of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
Meanwhile, conservative groups such as Americans for Prosperity are reportedly pouring million into races in which Democratic incumbents have supported ObamaCare.
Republican must pick up six seats to win control of the upper chamber. But until recently, they have set their sights mostly on a handful of largely conservative or Southern states in which Democratic incumbents are backing the law, including Alaska, Arkansas, Michigan, North Carolina and Louisiana.
Now, several other solid opportunities -- including races in Colorado and New Hampshire -- have emerged to give Republicans an expanded map and a better chance of winning control of the Senate.
In Colorado, for example, the Republican National Committee is adding more than a dozen staffers as a new candidate and sagging poll numbers for Democrats raise GOP hopes of ending the party's decade-long drought on top-of-the-ticket wins in the state.
The additions come after Republicans got a top-tier recruit -- GOP Rep. Cory Gardner --- to challenge Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Udall.
The RNC is hiring 11 new field workers, a director of Hispanic outreach and two additional Hispanic field staffers, as the GOP also contends for the governor’s seat. That will increase the party's national staff in the perennial political swing state to 20. The RNC will also open 12 field offices statewide, party officials said.
"Senator Udall and Governor (John) Hickenlooper are extremely vulnerable, and the RNC is making a serious investment across Colorado to defeat them in November," RNC spokesman Ryan Mahoney said.
Gardner shook up the state's politics late last month by announcing his bid. He is battling state Sen. Owen Hill for his party's nomination, but he has been many Republican donors and operatives' top choice in the race. Gardner declined to run last year, but he changed his mind as Udall barely edged possible challengers in a recent Quinnipiac University poll.
Democrats in turn have stepped up attacks on Gardner, with the state Democratic Party recently releasing a Web video criticizing him for supporting a measure that could outlaw abortion; voting for Wisconsin GOP Rep. Paul Ryan's proposal to transform Medicare; and opposing citizenship for people in the country illegally.
In addition, Republicans across the country appear excited about former Massachusetts GOP Sen. Scott Brown’s recent announcement that he intends to run against New Hampshire Democratic incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.
His decision gives the GOP a top-tier contender who, win or lose come November, might force Democrats to pull money from other races.
Brown has formally launched an exploratory committee to enter the Senate race, ending months of speculation about his intentions.
While recent polls give Shaheen a solid lead in a prospective matchup, Brown's near-universal name recognition in a Massachusetts border state and his national fundraising network makes him a serious contender on Day 1.
Brown rose to national prominence by winning the 2010 special election to replace the late Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy but he was soundly defeated in his first re-election test against Democrat Elizabeth Warren in 2012.
Democrats had scoffed at a prospective Brown candidacy, noting that he also was considering a 2016 presidential campaign. Brown canceled plans to visit Iowa next month and has now downplayed his White House aspirations.
In addition, Republicans think Virginia has emerging potential now that former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie is trying to unseat Democratic Sen. Mark Warner, whose numbers suggest he might be vulnerable.
A recent poll for right-leaning Washington Free Beacon shows 50 percent of Virginians said Warner should be reelected against a generic candidate, while 45 percent said they would elect someone new. And Warner is over the key 50 percent threshold only in heavily-Democratic northern Virginia, according to the poll.
However, a poll this month by Virginia’s Roanoke College shows Warner leading Gillespie by almost 30 points, 56 percent to 29 percent.
Despite the recent Republican optimism, Moran said Friday his party’s success will be decided “by what we do between now and November 2014."
Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman Justin Barasky told The Washington Post: "The reality is that up and down the map Democrats are out-campaigning, out-fundraising, and out-organizing their Republican counterparts.”

MY MESSAGE TO THE SO-CALLED MAIN STREAM NEWS MEDIA:(CNN,ABC,FOX,NBC,CBS, ETC)

WH
MY MESSAGE TO THE SO-CALLED MAIN STREAM NEWS MEDIA:

It’s truly possible that the disappearance of the Malaysian Plane might portend some very nefarious and dangerous scheme, of that I have no doubt.
This editorial will be short and sweet . . . STOP WITH THE MALAYSIAN PLANE!
This isn’t news. And until people who are REALLY In-The-Know . . . REALLY figure out what happened to that plane, if they ever do, then please fill us in. But, until you REALLY know something REAL . . . JUST SHUT UP!
There is so much happening in the world . . . that has – and will have an epic effect on all of us, that to see this crap over and over again on an issue that has no meaning to our greater, individual or global well-being borders on the asinine.
THERE IS NO BREAKING NEWS:
Every time I hear the newsy music, or the words BREAKING NEWS or NEWS ALERT, I cringe and want to turn off the television. How stupid does the media think we are, by featuring these never-ending TALKING HEADS who really know no more about what happened to that plane, than any of us do?
TALK AND WRITE ABOUT REAL ISSUES:
If they really want to talk about REAL issues that are . . . and must be a concern to all of us, let them talk about the severe DROUGHT in California that’s going to push the cost of fruit and vegetables through the roof, and leave California farmers, farm supply companies, and all the collateral jobs reliant on farming shut down.
Let them speak about this severe never-ending winter that still won’t let go, that has cost most people on the continent more money in energy than the vast majority can afford.
Let them talk about the shortened growing season in the North East, including Canada and the Central USA, because the weather prediction seems to be a colder than usual spring right up to and through the month of May.
I . . . like everyone else needs to have a longer growing period. I depend on being able to take my first cut of hay off the fields by late May to early June to feed my horses, and to give the crop enough growing time to generate the very important SECOND CUT.
UNDERSTAND THIS . . . If we don’t get a good hay harvest, there will not be enough to feed our cattle, which will lead to herd slaughters with much higher meat and dairy prices. AND THAT AFFECTS ALL OF US.
Then there are the nightmare challenges throughout the world from the Middle East, to Africa, to Eastern Europe and RIGHT HERE AT HOME, where we are facing a monolithic economic MELTDOWN:
IF ANYONE WANTS TO KNOW WHY BLOGS LIKE MINE ARE DOING SO WELL:
It’s because, unlike the media HACKS who broadcast ad nauseam the loss of a plane NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT, we focus on single important issues that are REAL to everyone.
I couldn’t give a RAT’S-ASS about gossip stories like Casey Anthony, Pistorious or any of the other NON NEWS STORIES that are nothing more than VOYEURISM and intellectual depravity. So, you won’t read or hear any of that on my BLOG.
I-O-U who support this website . . . who read what I write and listen to what I say, far more respect for your intelligence, than to be feeding you nonsense by pretending that it’s relevant.
The mainstream media should do no less.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

GOD'S NOT DEAD - NEW CHRISTIAN MOVIE BEING RELEASED SOON - AND OTHER MOVIES ?

WH
FROM OUR FRIENDS AT WEEPING EAGLE
 

"God's Not Dead", the movie, opens in theaters around the country today.  
This is, if the trailers are any indication, a film that is truly part of the "Christian" genre of movies, that may impact culture in a positive way this year.  



February's release of "Son of God", another "Christian" film, not without its controversies, has thus far grossed over $50 million domestically.

The new Russell Crowe film, "Noah" is due to open a week from today.  This is a big budget (reportedly $120 million big) Hollywood production from Director Darren Aronofsky.

Aronofsky has recently stated, quite directly:

"'Noah' is the least biblical movie ever made.  I don't give a f*** about the test scores.  My films are outside the scores".

Alrighty then.

Living Water ministries is releasing an online only movie on the same day as Aronofsky's "Noah" in direct response to Hollywood's version of Noah, called, "Noah and the Last Days".  This promises to be perhaps the most ministry minded and true to the bible movie of 2014 (see trailer below). 

It is downloadable right now for a cost to offset the production expenses of the movie, or will be free starting on the 28th of March to all.

Later this summer we will be able to see Nicholas Cage as airline pilot Rayford Steele in a re-make of the same name starring Kirk Cameron in 2000. 

Surprisingly, unlike Aronofsky's "Noah", this movie is produced by Christian filmmaker Paul LaLonde, and still contains one of Hollywood's best known leading actors. Perhaps there is then hope that  "Left Behind" will have a truly impactful Christian message.

I am all for a good Christian film that challenges the culture, and not so much for those that are not true to the scriptures.  However, the argument, that I don't necessarily buy into, is regarding movies like "Noah" and to a lesser degree, "Son of God" is that it is a good thing to have God, or Christian based movie themes on the big screen for the purpose of allowing you and I to then use these films to speak to a friend or neighbor about the love of Christ, when perhaps that conversation may seem "clumsy" or even insurmountable beforehand. 
If this is the case, let us be wise, and be busy in a post-Christian culture that has little idea of what the bible actually teaches - W.E.

Russia Annexes Crimea, Ukraine in the Crosshairs,
Baltic States Worried
March 22, 2014
Between March 16-20, 2014, AlertsUSA issued the following
Flash messages to subscriber mobile devices:
3/20 Escalation: President Obama announces new sanctions on Russian individuals, banks and key sectors of economy. Warns on military incursion into Ukraine.

3/16 Tensions Rising: Crimea votes to join Russia, Russian state TV says "Russia is the only country in the world capable of turning the U.S. into radioactive ash."
What You Need To Know
On multiple occasions this week AlertsUSA customers have been notified via text messages to their mobile devices regarding increasing tensions over Russia's occupation and annexation of Crimea, as well as the continued buildup of military forces on both sides of the Ukraine - - Russia border.
Following a referendum vote this past weekend, a formal ceremony was held early in the week in Moscow, where agreements were signed and the annexation completed. On Friday Russian President Putin signed the final decree making the Crimean Peninsula a part of Russia.
Despite a truce announced on March 16, this week Russian troops have seized several Ukrainian air bases, the headquarters of the Ukrainian navy, as well as a sizeable portion of their naval fleet. More than a dozen of Ukraine's remaining warships have been rendered effectively useless as they are trapped in port by a vessel intentionally scuttled to block their passage.
Earlier in the week, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen delivered an ominous warning stating that the annexation of Crimea is “the gravest threat to European security and stability since the end of the Cold War” and should be a wake-up call for European countries to bolster their own defenses to contain Russia’s imperialistic ambitions.
Vice President Joe Biden traveled to the Baltic region to further reassure Poland, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania that NATO’s Article V collective defense commitment is solid. In short, Article V states that if a NATO ally is a victim of an armed attack, all members of the alliance have an obligation to come to its aid.
Issuing a direct warning to Moscow and attempting to calm NATO allies, Vice President Biden stated the following:
"I want to make it unmistakingly clear to you and to all our allies in the region that our commitment to mutual self-defense under Article 5 of NATO remains ironclad. It is not in question."

A day earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that "NATO remains a military alliance, and we are against having a military alliance making itself at home right in our own backyard; in our historic territory."
Listeners may be interested to know that the first time NATO invoked Article V of the Washington Treaty was following the terrorist attacks of 9/11 when NATO partners sent military aircraft to patrol and monitor the skies over the U.S.. 830 military personnel from 13 different countries deployed to the U.S. during what was known as Operation Eagle Assist.
Vice President Biden also announced that in addition to new NATO exercises, the U.S. was considering rotating American forces to the Baltic region as a step towards ensuring the collective defense of our allies. In fact, those troops deployments have already begun. This is over and above the additional fighter aircraft and hundreds of personnel formally announced during the last couple weeks.
So where are we now?
As of late this week, civil unrest continues to grow in eastern Ukraine, further stoking the potential of a Russian invasion. In addition, Russian officials are now expressing outrage over Estonia’s treatment of its large ethnic Russian minority. Does this sound familiar? It should, as protecting Russian-speakers outside its borders is the pretext the Kremlin used to justify seizing the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine.
Late this week, the Eastern portion of Moldova known as Trans-Dniester, which is on the opposite side of Ukraine, has formally asked that Russia consider admitting the republic into the Russian Federation. Ethnic Russians in Latvia and Lithuania are also getting restless.
AlertsUSA continues to closely monitor the situation in the Ukraine and will issue additional alert messages to subscriber mobile devices as threats and events warrant.

See What Others Are Saying

Patriot Academy continues to impact my life and career. Because of my knowledge of bills and the legislative process that I gained at Patriot Academy, I have been able to excel as a legislative assistant for two Oklahoma Legislators this year. The Representatives trust me to analyze and follow bills. Because of the training at PA, I am also able to answer many of the questions that even legislators have about the legislative process itself. I have already been offered jobs at the OKC and Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce, law firms, and lobbying groups. I am only a junior in college, but I am so thankful everyday for the knowledge I gained at Patriot Academy and the incredible doors that it continues to open for me.
- Kelissa Sanders, Patriot Academy 2010 & 2011

Patriot Academy has brought my understanding and view of politics to a different level.  It was a great experience that returned far above the hours and dollars that I spent in getting there. The staff was professional but friendly. The alumni really did a great job in coming along side us nervous freshman and helping us out. Using the Capitol and the real house floor provides a fresh perspective on the process. All and all, it is the best political camp I have been to, and I am going back.
- Edward Jaax, State Representative of Patriot Academy 2008

When I first heard about Patriot Academy I was a little skeptical and didn't really want to go. But once my parents coerced me into attending I was absolutely blown away. Now I think of what I would have missed if I hadn't gone to Patriot Academy, and I hope that there aren't other students out there today who won't go simply because they're a little skeptical.
