What was it Mark Twain said- http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_VIRGINIA_PRIMARY_CANTOR?SITE=A... House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated Tuesday by a little-known economics professor in Virginia's Republican primary, a stunning upset and major victory for the tea party.
I was notified by a friend that the Lucas County Republican Party Central Committee is having a meeting this Wednesday night. I looked on the Party's web page and it says:
"Pursuant to Ohio R.C. 3517.04, I, Meghan Gallagher, Lucas County Republican Party (LCRP) Central Committee Chairman...."
Is Gallagher the chairman? I thought that Jon Stainbrook was. Of course, the way these two twist the rules--who's to say how such a switch may have occurred.
Obviously, many of us who post on SB don't agree on all topics. But I'd like to think that we all have a sense of responsibility that would motivate us to pull through on our promises.
Such is not the case with former BET and current MSNBC commentator Jeff Johnson. Johnson attended the University of Toledo in the early 1990s. He has periodically come back to UT to give speeches and to assist with the Africana Studies program.
In 2011, Johnson was honored at a special Black Alumni Weekend Homecoming event. An announcement was made that he was donating $10,000 to establish a scholarship for Africana Studies majors. It was a big deal and the UT Foundation feted Johnson at several events over that weekend.
Just one problem--Johnson has never actually given a dime of what he promised.
Can't wait to read the dance on this one.
In a move that is sure to confound--and enrage--the left, the Koch brothers have donated $25 million to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), the foremost source of financial support to African-American students.
The UNCF launched the "Koch Scholars" program Friday, which "will provide nearly 3,000 merit- based awards to African American undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctorate students seeking scholarship assistance."
The people of Lucas County have spoken and they want change! Earlier this month I ran a successful campaign for District 11’s State Central Committee for the Ohio Republican Party. My opponent was Lucas County Republican Party Chairman Jon Stainbrook. I defeated Mr. Stainbrook, an incumbent, by 20% with a vote of 60% to 40%. I believe this vote reflects the attitude of Lucas County Republicans who want change in party leadership.
Last week, the Washington Times mentioned the fact that the Obama administration seriously considered using military force against Cliven Bundy and his supporters during their standoff back in April. This should come as no surprise after we reported that there was word that the Defense Department had approved a drone strike.
Apparently, the Obama administration considered a strike on protesters, exercising their First Amendment rights, which ironically, are supposed to be protected by the same administration under the US Constitution.
The Times reported:
Recently, I was accused by Sylvania Councilman Doug Haynam as being someone who does “not like public schools” and wanted to defeat a levy (even going as far as saying that I was the one responsible for defeating the Sylvania School levy) but nothing could be further from the truth.
OBAMA LIES, SCANDALS & QUOTES::
(***not a comprehensive list)
1. "I will have the most transparent administration."
2. "I have shovel ready jobs."
3. "The IRS is not targeting anyone."
4. "If four Americans get killed…uh…. it is not optimal." (Benghazi)
5. "ObamaCare will be good for America."
6. "If you like your doctor, you can keep him, period."
7. "Premiums will be lowered by $2500"
8. If you like your health insurance, you can keep it, period.
9. "I did not say you could keep your health care." (Regardless that 29 recorded videos show I did)
One of the biggest disappointments of President Barack Obama presidency is his failure to close Guantanamo Bay as promised during his presidential campaign. So say the people looking for an excuse to diss the president. Soooooo where do they think the "prisoners" are going when released? Isn't Guantanamo Bay a military prison? So does that mean that most of the prisoners would be our prisoners of war? Would that mean that most then would be from Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and other places of war?
The Obama administration's new climate rule will force states to cut carbon dioxide emissions through a variety of policy options, including imposing a cap-and-trade program on existing their power plants.
The White House is trying to sell the proposed Environmental Protection Agency rule as "flexible" by highlighting that states can choose from a menu of policy options to cut emissions. The EPA's rule, which will be proposed Monday, seeks to cut emissions from existing power plants in a bid to fight global warming.
CA Congressman Dana Rohrabacher: Why Doesn’t Obama have a Valid Social Security Number and Valid IDs?
Attorney Orly Taitz has been advancing the issue of Barack Obama's fraudulent documents, including his birth certificate, selective service form and his use of a bogus Social Security number for several years now. She has also thrown her hat into the ring in the primaries for California Attorney General. On Monday, Taitz said that she had three United States Congressmen, including her own Representative, along with voters who specifically asked questions about Obama's bogus IDs.
AWOL Traitor Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Traded for Taliban Terrorists: “In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful.’’
The policy of the United States government has always been we do not negotiate with terrorists. So why did the Obama administration release five of the worst GITMO jihadists – Taliban leadership – in exchange for an AWOL soldier – a traitor – who willingly walked away from his unit, raising the question of whether he could be charged with being absent without leave or desertion.
USA Today: Many called Bergdahl a traitor or a deserter. Stephen Kirouac, calling Bergdahl a “dirtbag” and “sympathizer,” was among many who seized on that speculation to criticize the rescued soldier.
"White boys suffer profoundly," states Van Jones. One reason is that they don't have leaders in their community who are caring, loving individuals. How very true! At least black boys have black men that they can look up to, such as Van Jones, Jesse Jackson, Minister Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Al Sharpton, Colin Powell, Eric Michael Dyson, Eric Holder and of course President Barack Obama. And there are many, many more.

Quote from article:
The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals may have just dealt a serious blow to the U.S. Constitution.
In a unanimous decision earlier this month the Court determined that law enforcement officers are not required to present a warrant or charges before forcibly entering a person’s home, searching it, and confiscating their firearms if they believe it is in the individual’s best interests.
I am writing this letter to you, not as a Republican, not as a Democrat, but as a Veteran of the United States Army. There are two subjects that I would like to talk about and it is my hope you will make the correct decision concerning both topics after reading this correspondence.
When the Secretary of State can no longer trust anyone, he has to appoint two judges to do the job of the Board of Elections.
Secretary of State Jon Husted notified the Lucas County Board of Elections (BOE) May 20 of the selection of two former judges to provide bipartisan oversight for the certification of the recent primary election.
Judge Peter Handwork and Judge Charles Wittenberg will work with the BOE on the certification of the May 6 primary and the Toledo City Council District 2 special election results.
If you oppose gun control, you aren’t fooling Attorney General Eric Holder one little bit. You are clearly a racist, and he knows it.
Attorney General Eric Holder, who has suggested that critics of the Obama administration are motivated by race and referred to America as a “nation of cowards“ on race issues while blasting Americans who resist more gun control laws, suggested that those opposed to President Barack Obama’s policy agenda of “fundamental transformation” are quietly prejudiced.
