    NRSC pushing rumor designed to damage Chris McDaniel; Drag Thad Cochran across Finish

    Mark Levin

    Corrupt yet again

    Thad Cochran: Unfaithful Husband. Untrustworthy Politician. | RedState

    The NRSC is pushing a rumor designed to damage Chris McDaniel.


    Thad Cochran: Unfaithful Husband. Untrustworthy Politician.

    By: streiff (Diary) | May 22nd, 2014 at 03:54 PM | 47

    A lot of energy is being expended by the NRSC and the various sociopaths it employs to drag septuagenarian Thad Cochran across the finish line in his primary battle with state senator Chris McDaniel. The latest contretemps is hard for the average citizen to fathom. Apparently there was a slow motion illegal entry by a blogger into a nursing home that houses Mrs. Thad Cochran. One that Thad Cochran’s campaign knew about at least two weeks in advance. You might be surprised to learn his wife is confined to a nursing home. Because if you Google “Thad Cochran + wife” you will find the image at the top of this story.
    That woman is not Mrs. Thad Cochran.
    That woman is his executive assistant (translation: a government employee on Thad Cochran’s office payroll) named Kay Webber.
    She also happens to be Senator Cochran’s “landlord.” He lives in the basement of her house. That house is valued at nearly $1.7 million. More via Breitbart:
    Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) lives in the basement apartment in a house owned by his executive assistant, Kay Webber, which he has listed as his primary address on official forms. Now public records show Webber accompanied Cochran on dozens of taxpayer-funded trips overseas.
    According to the Congressional Record, where trip details including cost are listed, Webber has traveled with Cochran at taxpayer expense to 42 countries across five continents since 2002.
    For example, Cochran and Webber traveled eight times to France, five times to Italy, four times to Israel, and twice to Japan.
    The full list of countries they traveled to includes: Italy, France, Brussels, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Hungary, Russia, Norway, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Malta, Austria, and Czech Republic in Europe; Colombia, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile in South America; Guatemala, and Mexico in North and Central America; Japan, China, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, the Republic of the Philippines, and South Korea in Asia; Turkey, Jordan, Israel, Azerbaijan, Oman, and United Arab Emirates in the Middle East, to Morocco; and Egypt, Cape Verde, and South Africa in Africa.
    Other documents show that in 2005 and 2007, the Wine Institute, a trade association that represents the California wine industry, paid for Cochran’s and Webber’s travel to Sonoma, California for what a disclosure form described as “a fact-finding program on issues of importance to the wine industry.” No other aides attended the trip.
    The Congressional Record lists 33 trips that Cochran and Webber attended together. According to that record, the cost to the American taxpayer of Webber’s travel was at least $155,000.
    That is the issue this current nothingburger of a scandal being pushed by the NRSC is highlighting. It is interesting that the guy pushing this, a pencil neck named Brad Dayspring, has much closer ties to a pedophile than McDaniel does to anyone involve in this scandal.

    What the voters of Mississippi should take away from this incident is several things:

    • First. Thad Cochran has been an unfaithful husband and done so in an open and notorious manner not even rivaled by Bill Clinton.
    • Second. While his wife was shut away in a nursing home in Mississippi he has lived with one of his staffers.
    • Third. Thad Cochran is not a trustworthy man. Any man who would abandon his disabled wife and put his mistress on his office payroll brings us back to the days of Congressman Wilbur Hays who also put his mistress on his office payroll. Unlike Hays, Cochran will not be forced to retire into well deserved obscurity.
    • Fourth. The men supporting Thad Cochran are men without integrity and without any sense of honor or proportion. They will do or say whatever they are paid to do or say. If that includes cavorting with peophiles and adulterers and spreading lies, they will do so — so long as their next check clears the bank. By using such scum, he has made himself vulnerable to the truth.
    • Fifth. If Thad Cochran will toss his disabled wife aside for his own selfish pleasure and put his mistress on his payroll, what chance to do you, an anonymous taxpayer, have?

    When all is said and done Mississippi voters have this choice. On the one had they have a career politician who no longer lives in Mississippi. A man who has abandoned his disabled wife and taken up with his mistress to the extent of living in her house and putting her on his payroll. On the other hand they have an honorable man, and a conservative, who in a worst case scenario went to a fundraiser hosted by a guy who knew the guy who illegally entered Ms. Cochran’s nursing home to document her abandonment by her husband. That is pretty close to a no-brainer for the normal person.
    In a twisted sort of way, the NRSC has actually done Chris McDaniel a huge favor. It has cast the spotlight on Thad Cochran’s immoral and seemingly unethical behavior. And that is the issue that Mississippi voters will be focusing on.
    Update: On the off chance that decades of open and notorious conduct are wrong and there is a completely innocent explanation, Senator Cochran should offer his story to a jury of randomly selected wives and see if they believe it.

    Scottie Hughes: If Chris McDaniel Beats Sen. Thad Cochran ‘The Whole Table Has Turned’

    May 23, 2014 By TPNN Staff

    TPNN News Director Scottie Nell Hughes appeared on Varney & Co. on Fox Business on Friday to discuss Tuesday’s elections in which moderate candidates defeated more Tea Party-oriented candidates in a handful of primary races.

    Host Stuart Varney said the the victories of the moderates were a “significant retreat” for the Tea Party, in his opinion and asked Scottie to weigh in.

    “Let’s get it right out there,” Varney began. “I say that voters in those primaries gravitated more to the moderates, the center of the Republican Party, and a little bit away from the Tea Party. Would you go with that?” Varney asked Scottie.

    Scottie agreed that “this week” that seemed to be the result, but reminded Varney of the week before where Senate candidate Ben Sasse from Nebraska easily defeated the GOP establishment-backed moderate candidate.

    Scottie told Varney that, “This is what primary season is” about and that, “We have to find ways to unite,” after primary season or the GOP is going to lose in November. “We are a movement,” Scottie said with passion, referring to the pro-liberty, pro-Constitution Tea Party movement, and shouldn’t be judged only on electoral wins and losses.

    Stuart Varney then asked the question the GOP establishment is dying to know, “Will you, Tea Party people, support the moderates in November?”

    Scottie answers that the key race will be the one between Chris McDaniel and 42-year Washington incumbent, 76 year-old, Thad Cochran (who has said repeatedly that he really doesn’t know much about the Tea Party):
    “We hope that we don’t have moderates, because we really do have a lot of good conservatives. Look at Chris McDaniel [Tea Party-backed U.S. Senate candidate]. I think this is the race to watch down in Mississippi. Chris McDaniel, in June, he’s going up against Thad Cochran. He’s up in polls right now by 3%. That one right there, I guarantee if Chris wins, the whole table has turned.”
    The GOP Senate race primary in Mississippi is on June 3.

    Scottie and Varney, along with Charles Payne then go on to discuss IRS employees receiving bonuses, even though they owe back taxes!

    Tea Party Draws Battle Lines Against Mississippi Establishment in Cochran-McDaniel Race

    by Matthew Boyle 25 May 2014, 7:14 PM PDT 13 post a comment
    JACKSON, Mississippi—It's the Tea Party's biggest test in 2014: can the movement knock down an establishment Republican whose name in and of itself is an institution in the state he’s represented for 42 years?

    Ten days out from the election, both sides—the Tea Party and establishment Republicans—have sent in reinforcements for the final fight.

    While there have been some bright spots for the Tea Party this year—Ben Sasse’s victory in Nebraska, for instance—the five-year-old grassroots uprising seemed unprepared for the money and power the Establishment could wield, now that they're on guard.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell swatted his primary challenger Matt Bevin away like a fly. The Chamber of Commerce-backed Thom Tillis marched to an easy victory in North Carolina, avoiding a runoff against Mark Harris or Greg Brannon. Two establishment candidates—David Perdue and Rep. Jack Kingston—are headed into the runoff in Georgia’s U.S. Senate primary, while the Sarah Palin-backed Karen Handel is headed home.

    House races haven’t been much better for Tea Partiers. While Tea Party-backed Barry Loudermilk and Dr. Bob Johnson made it into their respective runoff races in Georgia and Walter Jones fended off an establishment primary challenger from an ex-Bush administration GOP establishment official, candidates like Katrina Pierson and Bryan Smith failed to wipe out close allies of Speaker John Boehner—House Rules Committee chairman Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) and Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID)—in their respective primaries. There is a chance in a runoff this week that longtime Texas GOP congressman Ralph Hall could fall to conservative John Ratcliffe, but otherwise hopeful conservatives across the country are failing to turn the outrage against Washington into electoral victory.

    Heading into the 2014 cycle, the movement's reputation caused trepidation. The Tea Party has stomped out-of-touch incumbents like now former Sen. Bob Bennett in Utah, replacing him with conservative Mike Lee, sent Ted Cruz to the U.S. Senate against all odds and money when he faced off against David Dewhurst in 2012, and saw Rand Paul beat the McConnell machine on the Senate GOP leader’s own Kentucky turf by besting McConnell’s pick for that seat—Trey Grayson—in 2010.

    This year's string of losses has put the Tea Party badly in need of a big win, prompting players on both sides of the divide to pour resources into the Mississippi race.

    The characters on each side of this battle are perfect for the political theater showdown: Tea Party-backed state Sen. Chris McDaniel is a conservative underdog in the mold of Cruz, Lee, or Paul, who has similarly embraced the grassroots with a tinge of his own southern brand of political flare. Thad Cochran, the longtime GOP senator from Mississippi, is seeking a seventh term in the U.S. Senate after 42 years in Congress, proudly feeding taxpayer dollars back to Mississippi throughout most of it.
    Not only has Cochran always been on the side of the GOP establishment in Mississippi and in Washington: he helped build it. With the exception of what seemed like an abnormality with Prentiss Walker’s election to Mississippi’s fourth congressional district seat for one term in the mid-1960s, no Republican had represented Mississippi in the U.S. Congress since the mid-1800s. That was until until Thad Cochran and Trent Lott, both in 1972, were elected to the U.S. House—Cochran from the fourth congressional district and Lott from the fifth.

    In fact, it was so unexpected that any Republican—never mind two—would win in Mississippi when Cochran and Lott did that Jere Nash and Andy Taggart, authors of Mississippi Politics: The Struggle For Power, 1976-2008, reported that Cochran’s wife Rose thought of Thad running as kind of a joke.

    “In 1972, the thirty-four-year-old Cochran was having a hard time convincing himself early on that he would win, especially when he came home after his first meeting with [conservative activist Billy] Mounger and asked his wife, ‘Rose, how would like to be married to a Congressman?’” Nash and Taggart wrote in their heavily reported book, published by the University Press of Mississippi, Jackson. “Her reply: ‘Which one?’”

    Cochran got lucky in the general election: Two Democrats, one white Democrat Ellis Bodron—who Nash and Taggart wrote was an “embodiment of the ‘old guard’ political establishment”—and the “black independent” Eddie McBride. Cochran secured a plurality of the vote, as Bodron and McBridge split the Democratic base over racial issues.

    Cochran hasn’t looked back since. In 1978, he ran for the U.S. Senate seat that longtime old white Democrat senator Jim Eastland—who ended up announcing his retirement—held for years. “For the past sixty years, only four men have served Mississippi in the U.S. Senate: Jim Eastland, John Stennis, Thad Cochran, and Trent Lott,” Nash and Taggart wrote in their book, which was published in 2008 but written before then-Congressman Roger Wicker took over Lott’s seat when Lott retired. “The most colorful, transparent, racially inflammatory, and overtly political of these has been Jim Eastland.”

    That’s why many didn’t know why Eastland backed down and essentially gave his Senate seat away to Cochran. If Eastland had run, he probably wouldn’t have drawn a black Democrat into the general election with him to split the vote. But since Eastland retired, Cochran again faced a split Democratic ticket against white Democrat Maurice Dantin and black independent Charles Evers. Cochran didn’t even get 50 percent of the vote in this election either, but the plurality he received—45.3 percent—catapulted him into the U.S. Congress’ upper chamber.

    The only potentially credible challenger Cochran ever faced for his Senate seat since then was in 1984 when ex-Democratic Mississippi Gov. William Winter—who had just championed a massively popular education reform bill through a previously gridlocked statehouse—ran against him.

    Haley Barbour had just failed, a couple years earlier, to unseat Stennis—running a campaign largely focused on Stennis’ old age—so for some reason, Winter decided to have a go at Cochran. With the overly popular Ronald Reagan at the top of the ticket seeking re-election to the White House, however—winning 62 percent of Mississippi voters—Cochran sailed past that challenge with 61 percent of the vote. Ironically, just eight years earlier in 1976, according to Nash and Taggart, Cochran helped Gerald Ford crush Reagan’s bid for the GOP nomination for the presidency that year. In their book, Nash and Taggart detail how Mississippi actually became the battleground state not only for the GOP nomination for the White House that year—but also for the presidency itself. Mississippi delivered Ford the GOP nomination over Reagan, and delivered Jimmy Carter the White House—the only time since 1956 that the state’s electoral votes went to a Democrat in a presidential election.

    Cochran ran unopposed for re-election in 1990, and faced no-name Democrats who couldn’t break 30 percent and 20 percent respectively in 1996 and 2002. In 2008, Democrat Erik Fleming put up a fight against Cochran but nothing serious, as he couldn’t even secure 40 percent of the vote.

    In 2014, it’s not the general election where Cochran faces his first ever threat. It’s in the primary, with youthful crusader McDaniel—a two-term state senator who clerked for Judge Charles Pickering and hosted a nationally syndicated talk radio program—is crisscrossing the state giving Cochran the biggest run for his money he’s ever had. McDaniel’s battle against Cochran in state—melded together against the backdrop of the national movement in peril—could prove to be larger than jut a battle between the two men.

    “I never see this guy leading a battle—making the case for liberty or private property rights or the Constitution,” nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin asked McDaniel in an interview last week, speaking of course about Cochran. “He’s almost like in the Witness Protection Program.”

    “Mississippi is the most conservative state in the Republic,” McDaniel answered. “It needs a fighter, a strong principled conservative who’s not afraid to stand. And lately we haven’t stood for very much. That’s true of the party as a whole. We have to find our backbone again.”

    Or, it could be, as MS GOP chairman and Cochran ally Joe Nosef says, just a fight between a man who’s done a lot for Mississippi in the past and a man who wants to do a lot for Mississippi. But the millions pouring in from both sides of the national GOP war—the Chamber of Commerce and Haley Barbour’s clients for Cochran, and the Club For Growth, Citizens United and Tea Party groups for McDaniel—and no lack of national political talent on the ground, seem to suggest this is not just a 2014 battlefield. It’s the 2014 battlefield.

    Cochran won't debate because it would reveal he's barely coherent and unworthy of reelection

    Thad Cochran Refuses to Debate McDaniel Again: America 'Is Not a Debating Society'

    by Matthew Boyle 29 May 2014 94 post a comment
    HATTIESBURG, Mississippi — Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) provided a new explanation for his refusal to debate his primary challenger that is sure to give fodder to critics who say that after six terms he feels entitled to his seat.

    “This is not a debating society,” Cochran said explaining his decision not to debate McDaniel. “This is a race for the United States Senate.”
    Cochran went on to say the voters of Mississippi will decide who wins. “The people are going to decide who wins the race,” he said. “Nothing that I can say is going to make much of a difference. It’s too late in the campaign. Most everyone has made up their minds.”
    “I’m looking forward to celebrating a victory on election night,” Cochran added.
    This remarks are the latest Cochran has provided regarding why he won't debate McDaniel. First, he and his campaign would not respond when asked why they won’t debate. Second, in late April, Cochran told the Associated Press he won’t debate McDaniel because “he’s trying to make me look bad.” Third, in mid-May, Cochran spokesman Jordan Russell told reporters—while appearing in Cochran’s place at a press conference that McDaniel had on the Mississippi State Capitol steps in Jackson—that Cochran won’t debate because McDaniel, in his words, is a “liar.”
    “Why would we put Sen. Cochran on stage with a liar?” Russell said then. “We’re just not going to do that. We’re not going to dignify that.”
    “Those are really strong words,” McDaniel said after returning to the stage to rebut Russell. “Sen. Cochran is supposed to be a 42-year incumbent who’s a gentleman. I’m shocked that his staff would behave like that. I will say this: It’s a shame that he has to send his staffer down here to debate me. He should be here, talking to me and making those allegations if necessary.”
    Cochran has faced harsh criticism throughout Mississippi for his refusal to debate. The Jackson Clarion-Ledger, for instance, calls the decision “unbecoming” of a U.S. Senator.
    Over the past few weeks, the Cochran campaign has worked to capitalize on the blogger scandal—which has resulted in four arrests, of the blogger and three conservative activists. The District Attorney involved, while saying no one has been cleared, said he does not believe anyone from the McDaniel campaign was involved in the matter. On Thursday, Clarion-Ledger reporter Sam Hall said on statewide radio that nobody else is expected to be arrested in the matter.
    McDaniel may be through the worst of the political impact of the scandal, and he has dollars pouring in to help him from conservative groups. The race is neck-and-neck, and McDaniel has benefited from some key endorsements—like that of Rick Santorum, who won Mississippi’s GOP presidential primary in 2012, and of Jeppie Barbour, the brother of former Gov. Haley Barbour. In the final days, McDaniel’s got the momentum heading into election day.
    “This isn't a debating society” is the latest unfortunate moment for Cochran on the campaign trail. He’s twice this year said he doesn’t know much about the Tea Party movement, has said he’s okay with at least some national debt, and praised earmarks hinting he’d support the return of the big spending big government appropriation tool.
    CNN’s Dana Bash, whom Cochran snuck away from using a “bait-and-switch” with two separate vehicles, reported that most of this behavior from Cochran is part of a campaign coordinated effort to “avoid unforced errors.”
    “This is ‘do no harm’—that is the most important thing for the Cochran campaign,” Bash said. “Allies admit it. That’s why he just isn’t talking to anybody at this point.”

    ELLISVILLE, Mississippi — With only three days until the polls open for the GOP Senate primary here and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at his side, State Sen. Chris McDaniel vowed to fight President Barack Obama alongside Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) in front of a raucous audience of thousands.
    Americans, McDaniel said, have fallen for a “great delusion”— that only government can solve all of the nation’s problems.
    “It is not the place of government to solve your problems,” McDaniel said. “It is the place of strong, self-reliant, self-governing individuals to solve your own problems—your church from time to time and your community from time to time—but not that government a thousand miles away. And every time we surrender our liberty, that government grows and expands more. More of your money. More of your freedoms. And there’s a price we pay for that.”
    Noting that he grew up “hanging out” in the auditorium holding the event, his father was a professor at Jones County Junior College, where the venue was, McDaniel recalled his introduction to politics.
    “I became a Republican when I was 13 years old, not because I knew anything about policy or philosophy or law,” McDaniel. “But I knew there was this man—this actor from California. He would look directly at that TV and it felt like he was speaking to me. My father called me into the room and he said, ‘son, you’ve got to see this.’ We watched Ronald Reagan talk about things that intuitively made sense to me. He talked about liberty. He talked about limited government. He talked about constitutionalism. He talked about balanced budgets. He talked about traditional family values.”
    Reagan, McDaniel added, painted politics in “bold colors, not pastels” and led “a party of principle, not surrender. Then it donned on me: I must be a Republican.”
    “Ladies and gentlemen, your constitution is not subject to compromise. I’ve got 17.5 trillion reasons to never again compromise on the debt. We stand here fighting what I consider to be the worst president in our country’s history. In this environment, where our conservative values are being attacked, where our conservative beliefs are being attacked, where our Constitution is being attacked, silence is complicity,” McDaniel added.
    McDaniel began a call-and-answer section of the speech that envigorated the crowd.
    “Conservatives look at me for a moment, Republicans look at me for a moment: Name one fight that Sen. Thad Cochran has led against Barack Obama,” McDaniel said.
    “Zero!” the crowd shouted, almost in unison. “None!” a woman near the front of the auditorium yelled.
    McDaniel—feeding off the energy of the crowd—continued: “Sen. Mike Lee, he stands and fights for Utah. Sen. Rand Paul stands to fight for Kentucky. Sen. Ted Cruz stands to fight for Texas. Even a Governor from Alaska fights for us. It’s time for a son of Mississippi to stand and fight for us. I tell you, when Sen. Ted Cruz stood there that night and he laid his soul on the line for this government and for this country, we applauded him. When others joined him, Mike Lee and Rand Paul, we knew we had friends in Washington, D.C., finally. Reinforcements are coming.”
    The thousands-strong crowd jumped to their feet to give McDaniel a standing ovation that lasted at least five seconds.
    “Now it’s not that Sen. Cochran is a bad person,” McDaniel continued, cutting through the standing ovation. “I respect Sen. Cochran. I even like him, despite the attack ads. But Sen. Cochran has not been the conservative voice we need from Mississippi. When those three men stood there on the floor of the Senate, Sen. Cochran was not there with them. He voted to fund Obamacare not once but twice. Republicans look at me for a second: Are we a party of bailouts?”
    “NO!” the audience shouted.
    McDaniel then listed off a whole host liberal votes from Cochran. “Sen. Cochran voted to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,” McDaniel said. “He voted for the Cash For Clunkers program. Come on conservatives, look at me for a second: Are we a party of taxation?”
    “NO!” the audience, most of whom were still on their feet, replied.
    “Sen. Cochran’s voted for higher income taxes,” McDaniel continued. “He’s voted for higher gas taxes, higher internet taxes. Are we a party of debt?”
    “NO!” the crowd shouted.
    “Cochran’s voted 13 times in the last 10 years to raise your debt ceiling to the tune of $8 trillion,” McDaniel trudged on. “Are we a party of the United Nations?”
    “NO!” shouted the crowd.
    “He’s voted to increase the U.N. peacekeeping costs,” McDaniel riffed. “He’s voted against the border fence—twice. But perhaps more alarmingly so, he voted for Chuck Hagel, and that was a line too far. Now the Republicans could have stopped the nomination of Chuck Hagel, couldn’t they have?”
    “YES!” the audience shouted.
    “But the first Republican senator to cross the aisle and support the Democrats against our wishes was none other than Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi,” McDaniel fired away, while thousands in attendance booed Cochran.
    “That’s the same Thad Cochran who supported John Kerry for Secretary of State,” McDaniel said while the audience booed Cochran more, “and the same Thad Cochran that gave us Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the United States Supreme Court. It’s time for a change in Washington, D.C. But we can’t change the city until we change the people we send there to represent us.”
    McDaniel continued, showing a comfort and command of the crowd he hadn’t previously exhibited on the campaign trail. He vowed to “kill” Obamacare, impose term limits, and worked said he would work to enact the policy agenda of Lee and Cruz.
    Towards the end of the speech, McDaniel offered a joke that hit at the heart of his campaign message – one that seems to be resonating deeply among Republicans here even as McDaniel has faced difficulties from the arrest of a blogger who allegedly entered Cochran’s wife’s residence to photograph her.
    “You know, the other day somebody said: ‘What do you a call a politician who’s been in Washington for 42 years?’ I said, ‘I don’t know, what?’ He said: ‘You call him home.’”
    The crowd roared.
