DNC Chair Struggles When Grilled About Democrats’ Support For Obama’s Policies

The food stamp program has always been tainted by people selling their benefots. The EBT cards were supposed to end that, but it didn't happen.
A public assistance service that feeds Ohio’s hungry families can double as currency for drug dealers who will trade almost anything for their product.
Dubious businesses and drug dealers will buy electronic benefits cards for about half the amount loaded onto the card. From there, people use the cash to buy drugs, said Eric Wolf, agent in charge with the Ohio Investigative Unit, which investigates food stamp fraud and liquor license violations.

Remember all the speculation that Michael Brown may have charged Officer Wilson because he was high on PCP?
It was wrong. Michael Brown only had THC from marijuana in his blood. So, it was "Reefer Madness?"
Via FOX News:
The toxicology test. also obtained by the newspaper and performed by a St. Louis University laboratory, revealed marijuana in Brown’s blood and urine. Alfred Staubus, a consultant in forensic toxicology at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy, told the newspaper THC could impair judgment or slow reaction times but that there was no reliable measurement to make those conclusions.“The detection of THC in the postmortem blood of Michael Brown really indicates his recent use of marijuana (within a few hours) and that he may or may not have been impaired at the time of his death,” Staubus said.
False speculation here, here, here, and here,
Palestinian Terrorist slams car into crowd killing a baby. AP headline, "“Israeli Police Shoot Man”…
This kind of bias by the mainstream media is undermining democracy and freedom around the world. Democracy and belief in freedom depend on an informed electorate, not an electorate fed propaganda and bullsh*t.
I can't find any comment at the link about why the story and headline were altered.

Chris Matthews reacts to Democratic Senate candidates Michelle Nunn (D-GA) and Mark Begich (D-AK), an incumbent, dodging the question if they voted for Obama.
“That’s the way people walk past guys who are trying to get a buck or a quarter from somebody,” Matthews said describing the candidates ignoring the question from a tracker.
“It’s like Obama has Ebola,” Matthews said on Monday’s broadcast of Hardball on MSNBC. “I wasn’t near him! I didn’t touch him!”
Obama is toxin now.
The war on women meme is failing for Democrats.
Via Yahoo News:
Women have moved in the GOP's direction since September. In last month's AP-GfK poll, 47 percent of female likely voters said they favored a Democratic-controlled Congress while 40 percent wanted the Republicans to capture control. In the new poll, the two parties are about even among women, 44 percent prefer the Republicans, 42 percent the Democrats.In all, the poll finds that 55 percent of likely voters now expect Republicans to win control of the Senate, up from 47 percent last month. Democrats have grown slightly more pessimistic on this count since September, with 25 percent expecting the GOP to take control now compared with 18 percent earlier.

Pennsylvania residents can now sue local governments for passing gun control laws that violate state law
Best story of the day; especially the part about demos being outraged.
Via Free Beacon:
Pennsylvania Democrats are outraged after a bill was passed that allows gun rights groups like the NRA to sue localities for passing laws that violate state law.
Many such Democrats said a provision forcing localities that lose lawsuits to pay the legal fees of the plaintiffs is particularly objectionable.
“This is a dangerous provision that threatens municipalities’ financial stability,” Rep. Madeleine Dean (D., Montgomery) told the Philadelphia Inquirer.
