MISSISSIPPI BURNING - GOP U.S. SEN. THAD COCHRAN v. TEA PARTIER CHRIS McDANIEL
THERE'S TALK OF A 3RD RACE BETWEEN THESE 2 - AFTER THE INITIAL PRIMARY AND SUBSEQUENT "RUN-OFF" --- THE RESULTS ARE STILL MUDDLED
THE TEA-PARTY THINKS THEY GOTTED ROBBED!
THEY CLAIM THAT GOP U.S. SENATOR THAD COCHRAN WAS THE BENEFICIARY OF BLACK DEMOCRATIC "CROSS-OVER" VOTERS WHO CAST THEIR BALLOTS FOR HIM OVER MCDANIEL, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE TOLD THAT COCHRAN WOULD BESTOW MORE BENEFITS ON THE BLACK COMMUNITY IN MISSISSIPPI
THE TEA PARTY IS ENRAGED THAT SUCH A TACTIC BY THE GOP MAINSTREAM TO USE GOVERNMENT "LARGESS" (MONETARY BENEFITS) TO RIG AN ELECTION TO BENEFIT "THEIR" CANDIDATE (COCHRAN) IS SIMPLY AN OUTRAGEOUS USE OF THE GOVERNMENTAL MACHINERY
IS THIS THE BEGINNING OF AN ABSOLUTE OUT-AND-OUT CIVIL WAR WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT WILL CAUSE IT TO SPLIT INTO TWO SEPARATE POLITICAL ENTITIES/FACTIONS?
WE SHOULD KNOW FOR SURE BY NOVEMBER 2016!
U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran defeated his tea party-backed challenger, Chris McDaniel in Tuesday's runoff, according to the Associated Press.
“We all have a right to be proud of our state tonight,” Thank you for the wonderful honor and for the wonderful challenge that lies ahead.”Thad Cochran
U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel declared victory in the 13th Congressional District Democratic primary with 99 percent of the precincts reporting Rangel had 47 percent of the vote compared with 44 percent for Espaillat.
Are we any closer to finding out the truth behind Benghazi? I have my doubts. Hillary Clinton's book plummets in sales on week two. Thad Cochran finds support in strange places. The GOP doesn't much care for the ruckus the Tea Party are causing, and apparebtly neither do minority Democratic voters in Mississippi.Shame really, a Tea Party loudmouth might have turned Mississippi blue. Is the immigration reform debate dead?
All this and more
Well, in a show that is in some senses and is not in other senses put together on the fly, my main subject today focuses on the unbelievable lengths that the Republican establishment went to in order to keep Senator Thad Cochran in office at least as the Republican incumbent on the November ballot. This is a man that I would say that at 76 years old and with some troubling signs of mental alertness, his time to competently serve has likely passed him by. But of course, it's not about Thad Cochran being old or being part of the establishment. It's about the establishment's attacking of conservatives, ignoring the will of the people in their own party and in the country, and of course the courting of mostly black, liberal Democrats to go and vote for Cochran in the runoff, likely illegally. If this doesn't show what they think of conservatives, I don't know what will. Also, some news on Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who's been jerked all around by that country's government. Also John Boehner's and the House's possible lawsuit against Obama and the latest mind boggling vote from the Presbyterian Church USA will be talked about as well. That's today at 4:30 Eastern and archived afterward.
Last night's Republican runoff election between Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran and Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel has kept the political pundits busy -- and surprised, as Cochran squeezed out a victory, thanks to appeals to African-American Democrats and a well-run Get Out the Vote effort from Republican leaders like Haley Barbour. Too bad Cochran is such a sore loser.

Former Kossack know as ThereIsNoSpoon, David blogs at Digby's Hullabaloo, Alternet and the Washington Monthly. He's a local elected official and Democratic party officer in Southern California, and joins us to discuss the Senate runoff in Mississippi, involving Thad Cochrane's seat. "RedState editor and super hardline conservative Erick Erickson is steaming mad over longtime incumbent Thad Cochran's victory in Mississippi by reaching out to Democratic voters in the open primary."
Can the United States survive Obama? His lawlessness has reached a new high with the massive importation of illegal aliens. The Cloward-Piven Strategy is moving into the endgame, overloading the welfare system. Meanwhile, the Republicans are clueless, with the establishment using the sleaziest of tactics against conservative candidates.
There is a bit of good news. The Supreme Court has chosen to uphold the Constitution in several key cases.
The new battlecry: REMEMBER MISSISSIPPI. The Republican establishment used the sleaziest politics ever to get Thad Cochran elected.

Black voters played a huge role in helping Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) fend off tea party challenger Chris McDaniel in a runoff election Tuesday, and now the state NAACP is asking the six-term senator to return the favor.
Two political investigations are going on simultaneously in Mississippi. The first is to identify exactly who was behind the racist Robocall to democrats in an effort to manipulate the vote counts; and also identify the people behind the racist flyers. Most research seems to indicate former Republican Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, and his political PAC, as the source of the race-baiting attack ads. The racist McDaniel hates black people mailer? Note the illegal lack of disclosure.
In his speech that was banned from local TV, Chris McDaniel promises to never surrender. It’s deeply moving.
