Great new ad from Jeff Johnson
There’s nothing but headlines about the Vikings stadium construction and its SEEK AND DESTROY BIRD ERADICATION glass, but has anyone bothered to ask the DFL Senate of their new glassy exterior Senatorial Taj Ma Baak going to use bird friendly glass?
Up next on the liberal hypocrisy watch, how many birds are killed by taxpayer funded windmills?
If we could save just one bird’s life…..
Senator Klobuchar is proudly defending new found Hawk President Obama’s decision to escalate the war on ISIS by expanding the area of airstrikes from Iraq to also include Syria.
Don’t get me wrong, ISIS is pure evil, but the Senator used to sing a completely different tune on military involvement. In her 2006 campaign, she said wanted to bring all the troops home (well she wiggled and giggled to some form of a pull out stance).
On perhaps the biggest question about Iraq — withdrawing troops — Amy Klobuchar has a different answer now than she did earlier this year. In June she told Minnesota Public Radio she supported bringing home more than half of the troops in 2006 and withdrawing the rest by the end of next year, with one caveat.
“We need to bring a significant number of the troops home,” she said. “One reason I just can’t buy into bringing every single troop out by the end of the year is that if there’s a possibility that a peacekeeping force comes in or the U.N, comes in and if we’re asked to be part of that, we must do that.”
That was last summer.
Here’s the DFL Senate candidate in a recent appearance with Tim Russert on NBC’s Meet the Press.
“Clearly, at this time, this late date in mid-October, we can’t bring a significant number home,” she said. “We have to be reasonable. I have never been one to say ‘bring them all home tomorrow.’ I have never subscribed to one of those mandatory dates, because I understand that, despite my opposition to the war from the beginning, that we have to be responsible about how we bring our troops home.”
“But you did say bring home bring home a significant number this year, you’re saying now that’s probably not doable. What about a vast majority in 2007, which is what you said also?” Russert asked.
“These predictions were built on the promises and the predictions of progress from this administration,” said Klobuchar, “and we simply haven’t seen that so you have to be reasonable in what you’re going to do here.”
Once Klobuchar and Democrats got an anti-war Democrat elected to the Presidency, they did end the war in Iraq based on politics at home. ISIS, in my opinion, is the effect of that political decision to “bring our troops home”. That, coupled with the bungling foreign policy of this Democrat administration have left the World with no leader of the free world.
President Obama and Sen. Klobuchar have been too preoccupied with defeating the Tea Party and ambulance chasing to maintain a firm grasp of the burdensome and icky reality of foreign policy and the importance of not letting politics and the media distort your judgement.
I pray that this country wakes up and realizes that elections have consequences.
Spetember 11th, 2001 is a day some Americans refuse to remember. Some don’t remember. And the media won’t show you the following.
Maybe this will help.

We must never forget these images and videos.
It won’t come as a shock to the politically involved, but Alliance for a Better Minnesota’s ad about Republican Governor candidate Jeff Johnson is full of lies and misleading statements.
Let’s not forget that ABM is just the slush fund and PR machine of the DFL in Minnesota. Its a consortium of labor unions and special interest groups who do the dirty work for the DFL of attacking ands sliming Republicans in elections.
The Chair of ABM’s PAC is Jon Grebner who is also listed as a political director of AFSCME. And WOW this union staffer Jon Grebner pulled in almost $90,000 in salary from the union in 2013.
KSTP Fact Checked ABM’s latest attack ad trying desperately to distract voters from stumbling upon Governor Dayton’s dismal record and it received a C-.
The way I tell that election season has officially started is not the State Fair, or the TV ads start flying. Nope, I look for organized union protests like we saw at “fast food joints” yesterday.
I have no ill will towards any individual who is forced or chooses to carry their union card, but I do have to ask why you seek another master? I do believe the usefulness of a union has long since become irrelevant. With the advent of technological advances workplaces are safer and with the ever growing nanny state’s bureaucratic armies, compliance and oversight is taken care of.
The fact is, Big Labor unions are not concerned with the plight of their members, but rather on the health of the union itself. And they are spending big time to help push that “workers revolution” you may have read about in Marx’s utopia. And they are spending a boat load of their union members’ hard earned money (forcibly collected ‘dues’) on their radical mission.
The Service Employees International Union, or SEIU, is one of the biggest backers of the effort to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour and to unionize fast food workers. The union is heavily invested in the effort, having spent more than $38 million, directly and indirectly, in 2013 alone.
The union collects dues (IE: Taxes its members) in order to spend $38 million in a push to grow the union. They often pay people to “protest”. They also have staff and administrative and management costs that the members are forced to pay for. Doesn’t that seem like an unnecessary cost to the worker when the union is more interested in its own size, growth (dare I say profits) then the well being of the current member’s take home pay?
Don’t forget, unions take a cut out of every member’s paycheck up front. I just don’t understand why anyone who hates big business is so dang loyal to big labor. Forgot my belief that big labor has been over taken by marxists, and look at the fact that labor unions are becoming bureaucratic nightmares with leaders simply looking to maximize their salaries and profits while helping out their political allies in power.
Union leaders want to redistribute private business capital into the hands of their members through pay raises so the unions can collect more dues and elect more Democrats who will help install ….
Senator Al Franken got elected, in large part for the backlash against Republicans for the war in Iraq. He was a chief proponent of lobbying criticism at the decision to go to war. Now that chaos is spreading in the middle east due to the US doing what Al Franken wanted (IE: Leaving), and Iraq and Syria are falling to radical extremists, was Al Franken’s 2008 campaign rhetoric the right prescription, but more importantly, what does now – Sen. Franken have to say to a Democrat President faced with tough choices on national security and the growing global risk of radical Islam?
Great video by the MNGOP highlighting the hypocrisy of Democrats on Iraq and threats of doing nothing.
While Minnesota Democrats are busy trying to create the perfect progressive utopia, there appears to be trouble brewing on many facets that are being ignored. Achievement gaps, crumbling infrastructure while spending billions on trains, under employment rates, anti-business red tape obstacles, high taxes, unsustainable spending projections and promises….. oh and what seems to be one of the most friendly environment to recruit terrorists for the global jihad against non-muslims.
In addition to the American rapper from Minneapolis recently killed in the bloody fighting inSyria, nearly a dozen former residents of Minnesota’s Twin Cities have left their homes to take up arms with extremist rebel groups in the Middle Eastern nation, U.S. officials told ABC News.

If MPR’s Catherine Richert thinks Jeff Johnson stating facts is misleading, maybe she can take a peak into one of Al Franken’s fundraising emails dripping with misleading statements and flat out lies. Take this morning’s fear mongering for instance.
I don’t have to tell you that Fundraising Email Threat Inflation is a real concern.
Of course, if I wanted to keep pace with the frantic tone of everything else in your inbox these days, I’d probably say thatFUNDRAISING EMAIL THREAT INFLATION IS STANDING OUTSIDE YOUR FRONT DOOR WITH A BUCKET OF LIGHTER FLUID AND A BOOK OF MATCHES RIGHT NOW!!!!!
But, here’s the thing: We don’t need to exaggerate what we’re up against in this campaign.
I’m sure you don’t need blinking lights and siren GIFs to understand what’s at stake here.
If we let our opponents have their way, they will turn Medicare into a voucher system. They will continue to reward companies for shipping jobs overseas. They will let the most radical voices on the far right block any action on immigration reform or climate change. They will shut down the government again the next time the Tea Party tells them to.
And if we don’t hit our fundraising goals, the Koch brothers and their allies will buy this Senate seat, just like they have in other parts of the country. My opponent has already turned a Koch check into an attack ad against me — and the special interest groups are targeting me, as well. And with the race already in single digits, according to two recent polls, we really do have no margin for error.
Come on MPR, prove to the public that you aren’t biased and in the bag for Democrats. I dare you to actually fact check this.
P.S.: No need to make the threat sound any scarier than it really is: The Koch brothers want to buy this election for my opponent so he can vote for their right-wing policies. I think that’s reason enough to take action:
I triple dog dare you Ms. Reichert.
