SORT BY Relevancy
Cantor’s role as Obama’s nemesis, as the National Review recently dubbed him, is remarkable for several reasons—none more so than the fact that, although he’s now the darling of the tea party, he initially rose to power in Washington by standing for almost everything the tea party is against.Jason Zengerle New York Magazine
Eric Cantor, "widely presumed to be the next GOP Speaker of the House," the most powerful man in Washington. The magazine explain the honor by saying:The Republican whom Democrats — especially Obama — hate most. The Virginia Congressman masterminded, and then masterfully carried out, the GOP's strategy of legislative intransigence that has stymied the White House these past three years. In the process, he imposed his will on all of Washington, refashioning the city into a hyperpartisan capital of gridlock.GQ
On the June 11th, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
Back from vacation and so much to discuss. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal signed a bill into law that seeks to retroactively strip the ability of local flood protection agencies to sue oil companies for damage done to the flood protection system by their drilling processes. So much for the free market. This smells more like protectionism. I will go into why this is a bad idea and why this decision is similar to what happened in Oklahoma .
Louisiana also embarassed itself by requiring doctors to keep a dying pregnant woman alive, despite any advance directives, in order to allow her to be a breeding vessel. I will briefly cover this and the other law that required doctors to have admitting privileges in nearby hospitals.
But the main point of discussion this week will be the stunning loss of Eric Cantor, House Majority Leader, in a primary election. All through my attempts to push the #RetakeCongress I have said that no election should be taken for granted. I have discussed the desire of the media to mock underfunded candidates in order to prove that money is needed to win elections (specifically money to buy their advertising). I have discussed why it is vital to get out and vote in every election. Cantor losing puts a huge exclamation point and should clearly show why it is vital to not sit at home on election day.
Those issues, headlines, tweet of the week and more at 8pm Central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right.

In a week that saw more outbreaks of domestic terrorism, school shootings, continued faux outrage at the Bergdahl release -- a ray of political good cheer: Eric Cantor lost his primary bid for re-election. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills are no fans of David Brat, the Tea Party free-market economics professor who defeated Cantor... but they can't help enjoying a small moment of schadenfreude over this development in this week's political discussion from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
As further evidence of the unpredictable political landscape in America today, the unpredictable happened - House, GOP Leader Eric Cantor was defeated in the Virginia Primary by little-known Dr. David Brat/
To some, the defeat at the hands of a Tea-Party candidate, spells the doom for the GOP, as invariably, Democrats will play the "extreme-right" card, which has been to a great extent, a successful strategy.
In this, the pervasive issue seems to be the contentious issue of immigration "reform", which, with the defeat of Cantor, may in a death spiral.
Also in the news, it seems that Barack Obama's decision to withdraw troops from Iraq, has created a security vacuum, which seems to have been filled by the group, known as ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria). According to reports, they have managed to take over significant portions of Iraq.
Pressed for a response, Mr. Obama at a press conference on Friday, stated that he would decide on military support for Iraq, in the "days ahead".
What must be considered in this, are the tenuous relations between the Shia and Sunni communities. At 60%, the former are in the majority, with the Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, being one. However, ISIS, purportedly with its origins from Al-Qaeda in Iraq, identifies itself as Sunni.
Clearly, this is a tinderbox, through which only those with level heads, will be able to effectively navigate.
And speaking of immigration, did you hear or read about the immigration problem in Texas? Apparently, there was a drop-off of sorts, mainly children, which has officials here, trying to find the best means of reuniting them with their families. For sure, this issue will be used as a litmus test for some, as a commitment to good will and compassion - more directly put, how far the country takes immigration "reform".
Tonight on the Curent Issues Show we will be talking about Eric Cantor to step down from being a majority leader. We are also talking about the G.O.P and how being to far right is now considered moderate. Finally we are talking about how President Obama said this nation "should be ashamed" over the gun violence.
Welcome to the Seriouside of the jril show. We will be discussing the following topics:
SEGMENT 1 (9:00-9:30am)
It was 20 years ago during a NBA basketball game when we first witness the “Chase” on live TV. We will take a look back at the trial of the century!
SEGMENT 2 (9:30-10:00am)
SEE YA & I WOULDN’T WANT TO BE YA!
Days after his shocking defeat in a Virginia Republican Primary, Eric Cantor is left wondering how a well-funded, powerful, conservative member of Congress loses to a political nobody. Can you say “Tea Party”?
SEGMENT 2 (9:30-10:00am)
THE AFRICAN AMERICAN FATHER
We will take a look at the black father on this Father’s Day and should single mothers be allowed to celebrate this day as well?
Why did Eric Cantor become the first House Majority Leader in the 115-year history of the office to be defeated for re-election? One word: "amnesty"; The Clintons' tale of woe is an insult to working Americans; Is anyone really surprised that Hillary's new memoir is remarkably dull?; We’re bashing Hillary for her laughable comments — not her wealth; and with bad news still flowing about ObamaCare, Dems could almost use another scandal.
Tonite (6.16.2014) we talked about:
The clinton crime couple who have raked in more than $100 million FRNs since leaving the W.H. Siko bill makes $750,000 per speech and Hitler Jr. makes $250,000 per moronic speech.
Iraq is falling to ISIS (aka al CIAda) to make the Kenyan bastard look bad and hand the 2014 election to the GOP.
Eric cantor was defeated by a newbee Tea Party candidate David Brat. cantor spent nearly $5 million while Brat spent less than $123,000. cantor's pollster had him ahead by 30 points. So what happened?!!!

At the intersection of policy, history and politics, waiting in the darkest recesses of the Tea Party vs. GOP no-man's-land, is Radio Free America!
Many Americans had forgotten, over the last five years, that the taliban were holding U.S. Army private Bowe Bergdahl, now a sergeant. He's back in our hands now...but who did we have to give up? Did we trade a king, a queen, two bishops and a knight for a pawn?
Meanwhile, back on Capitol Hill, former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated in Tuesday's primary, and resigned from his leadership position earlier today. Is this a signal that the Tea Party is gaining strength?
Also: Some Civil War History, a little hangar flying and...your calls! Don't miss it!
David [pun intended] versus Goliath or are people just so fed up that the incumbents are put on notice?
They're still wondering why Eric Cantor, a seven term incumbent lost to David Brat, a professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland Virginia.
some are speculating that it's brat's stance against amnesty for illegal aliens. But for whatever the reason may truly be, the people have spoken.
