Daily Scoreboard: May 21, 2014

1. Mitch McConnell wins the Republican primary by 25 points.

You ride with the cavalry you are given, conservatives. Even if it is Mr. Ed.

GOOD.

2. From Real Clear Politics: "Can the Clintons Rescue an Embattled Family Member in Pa.?"

Democratic Party voters: Hell no.

After a quarter century of the constant turmoil and drama from these grifters from Hope, the American people have had it with the House of Clinton.

She's an old hag and he's a limp corndog.

Go away.

GOOD.

3. From ABC:  Former Dollar General CEO David Perdue has advanced to a GOP runoff in Georgia's hotly contested Senate race that will eventually help determine which party controls Congress."

Poca has a Dollar General.

Fine store.

GOOD.

4. From Reuters: "A sophisticated hacking group recently attacked a U.S. public utility and compromised its control system network, but there was no evidence that the utility's operations were affected, according to the Department of Homeland Security."
You know what?

We're vulnerable. We always will be. Eventually we die.


Dump DHS and give everyone a round of bourbon. It's on the Scorekeeper. Life's too short to get ulcers over security.

GOOD.

5. From CNS: "The federal government is piecing together a sweeping national biosurveillance system that will give bureaucrats near real-time access to Americans’ private medical information in the name of national security, according to Twila Brase, a public health nurse and co-founder of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom. The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response is currently seeking public comment on a 52-page draft of the proposed National Health Security Strategy 2015-2018.”

This is why Obamacare puts your medical records online.

EVIL.

6. From Right Wing News: "A former Illinois Obamacare navigator discovered to have been a convicted terrorist may now plead guilty over failing to tell immigration officers about her conviction when she moved to the U.S.  Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was sentenced to life in prison by an Israeli court in 1970 after she and her accomplices with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a terrorist group, placed multiple bombs in Jerusalem on Feb. 21, 1969 which killed two college students doing their grocery shopping."

Ever notice how many terrorists that Obama attracts to his regime?

He's like a magnet for maggots.

EVIL.

7. From Yahoo: "It's one of the worst-kept secrets around Detroit; that Dodge was tinkering with a new version of its Challenger muscle car that would leapfrog the power not just of the competition but of any other car Chrysler builds. And today, Dodge made it official, announcing it would offer a supercharged V-8 in the Challenger SRT good for more than 600 hp. The question it didn't answer was: Just how much more?"

That's nice.

Still no droptop.

Pass.

GOOD.

8. From the Wall Street Journal: "China and Russia Sign Natural Gas Deal Gazprom. CEO Says Agreement Worth $400 Billion Over 30 Years."

So the Evil Empire re-assembles itself as a capitalist state while we go commie.

GOOD.

9. From Democratic Florida Rep. Joe Garcia: “And of course, the reason is we’ve proved that Communism works. If you give everybody a good, government job, there’s no crime.”

You thought No. 8 was hyperbole?

EVIL.

10. From Breitbart: "CNN boss Jeff Zucker conceded that his audience is not interested in the network's global warming agenda."

The only thing global warming is melting away is CNN's audience.

GOOD.

11. Nevertheless, CNN pursues the untruth relentlessly.
That fewer Americans believe this nonsense is proof that there is hope yet for our nation -- and hence, the world.

GOOD.

12. From Don Surber:
The $1.2 trillion in student loan debt means $1.2 trillion is not borrowed in mortgages. This has stalled the housing market, which stalls the economy.
To put that in perspective, the total residential mortgages fell from $11.9 trillion in 2007 to less than $9.9 trillion last year.
“Investment in residential property remains a smaller share of the overall economy than at any time since World War II, contributing less to growth than it did even in previous steep downturns in the early 1980s, when mortgage rates hit 20 percent,” Neil Irwin wrote in the New York Times.
When we paid 19.5 percent interest on a mobile home in the 1980s, my wife and I helped the economy recover from a far worse situation than what we had in 2008 and 2009. The misery index (the rate of inflation plus the unemployment rate) peaked at 20.76 in 1980 compared to a mere 12.11 in 2011.
The Scorekeeper is a great admirer of his own work.

GOOD.

13. From Elizabeth Murray: "Another summer, another class-action lawsuit against the NFL. This time, eight former NFL players — Richard Dent, Jim McMahon, Jeremy Newberry, Roy Green, J.D. Hill, Keith Van Horne, Ron Stone, and Ron Pritchard — filed a class-action lawsuit alleging that the NFL supplied them with illegally prescribed painkillers throughout their careers, which led to medical complications such as addiction later in life."

Hey, new marketing opportunity. Sell team naming rights. "The Cleveland Browns sponsored by OxyContin."

EVIL.

14. From CBS: "Miami VA Whistleblower Exposes Drug Dealing, Theft, Abuse."

Or as the Scorekeeper calls it, a typical day in Congress.

EVIL.

15. Just to prove the Scorekeeper isn't a sexist who publishes only photos of pretty girls.



If only members of Congress had some kind of power to change the world.

EVIL.

15. From Twitter.
They should try the hashtag #DontRobUs next.

GOOD.

16. From Breitbart:
Undercover journalist James O’Keefe released his latest video featuring a sting operation to expose Hollywood environmentalists. The video features an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posing as "Muhammad,” a member of a Middle Eastern oil family, offering $9 million in funding to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie.
He was joined by a second undercover activist posing as an ad executive. O’Keefe entraps actor Ed Begley Jr., actress Mariel Hemingway, and director Josh Tickell, who agree to the film while promising to hide the source of the funds. 
Makes you wonder how many other projects Hollywood fronts.

There is no greater fiction than a documentary.

EVIL.

17. From the National Weather Service this afternoon:


Sharknado.

GOOD.

Final score: GOOD 11, EVIL 6.

  1. 1. I would not have voted for either McConnell or Bevin if I lived in Kentucky. What turned me off about Bevin is that he and his wife imported four fashion accessories from Ethiopia.

    2. Don't forget that she's Chelsea Clinton's mother-in-law, and when she had her one term in Congress from 1993-1995, she was the deciding vote for Clinton's tax increases. I think this is a clue that HRC is all hat and no cattle. There's a book in England laying 85-1 on Mark Warner being the Democrat nominee in 2016. If you can find it, lay money. Your wallet will thank me in the summer of 2016.

    3. Perdue = Amnesty and open borders. No way Jose.

    7. You mean they got that thing past CAFE?

    1. BTW back to number 1, someone who is a five term Senator running for his sixth, who leads his own party's caucus in the Senate, should do a lot better than 60% in his own party's primary. He or she shouldn't even have a primary challenger that gets more than a single digit percentage of the vote.

  2. #1...Sometimes you need to put the horse down for your own sanity. Letting the fools watch the donkey race with the horses might get their attention...

    #2...Once again, underestimating the power of the ignorant voter, based on a House race, will only help the Clintons...

    #4..."You know what? We're vulnerable. We always will be. Eventually we die." With that attitude, why bother ourselves with assests and liabilities, Democrats or socialists, or the whole of the Federal bureaucracy's attempt at killing the USA?

    #5...We've known this since the damn bill was passed. But the establishment GOP thinks this is a feature, not a bug--but let's keep sending the McConnells and Grahams to represent the conservative POV, ok? Apparently so, via #1 and #4.

    #7...Thank God for muscle cars! That's American!

    #8...Not sure I see any GOOD in this for our European allies or our foreign policy---but we gave up on adult foreign policy since about 1968.

    #9...We've known that Democrats are Socialists since about the turn of the century--the 19th. Now they're just willing to admit it since one of their own is in the WH.

    #13...I'm guessing they're all Democrats cause they had no power to make their own decisions when it came to medical care.

    #14...Hashtag diplomacy from the world of DC is a sign of weakness and anyone holding such a sign is admitting their incompetence to the world.

    #16...Let me complete the sentence for better accuracy, as I've seen quite a few good documentaries without the Hollywood influence: "There is no greater fiction than a documentary out of California."

    #17...Damn, so Hollywood got one right! /sarcasm

  4. Don, I count it a good day when I don't have to look at the ugly sisters from California. And there you go again. There should be a law that says when you show ugly women from California you have to show cute ladies from Israel or someplace.

  5. 1. "Given"? What if the generals of the calvary are moonlighting by fighting for the Indians?

    2. If the GOP nominates Christie or Jeb Bush or (gulp!) Peter King, Hilly wins by default.

    15. #TakeThemInstead

    The other 15. At least they managed to give their BBQ away.

  6. 4--Why should wee take the DHS's word for that?

    9--Sorry, Joe, the Ruskies disproved it Big Time!

    10--But will he change? My money's on NO.

    13--The NFL? Or the teams they played for? I say, teams.

    14--If only they cared to actually do something. Unless you can brand or cut a hashtag into a BKer, they don't pay no nevermind.

    15--Stupid is as Stupid does.

    16--What? Mikey Moore wouldn't bite?
