NRSC joins the fray in Tennessee Senate race

The National Republican Senate Campaign has launched its first ad of the U.S. Senate race in Tenneseee. It warns that if Phil Bredesen wins, Denecrats could take over the chamber.

Phil Bredesen and Washington liberals will stop at nothing to take back the Senate and empower radical left-wing politicians focused on repealing the progress President Trump has achieved,” NRSC spokesman Michael McAdams said in a release.

State Democrats notes that the NRSC has received more than $70,000 from auto dealer Lee Beaman, who has stepped down from the boards of Belmont University and Montgomery Bell Academy amid sordid allegations made in his divorce proceedings from his fourth wife.

“Marsha Blackburn and the NRSC should be ashamed of themselves for funding attack ads with money from a man accused of ‘sexual manipulations and degradation.’ They have refused to speak out against Lee Beaman, who’s now the co-chair of Blackburn’s pro-life coalition. Coupled with their rubber-stamp approval of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination without even listening to the concerns of women, it’s obvious that neither Blackburn or the NRSC is interested in standing up for Tennessee women,” Beth Joslin Roth, Tennessee Victory 2018 Women’s Coalition co-chair, said in a release.

Here’s a transcript of the ad:

BRET BAIER: Tennessee’s US Senate race figures to be crucial.

STEVE HARRIGAN: Could determine control of the U.S. Senate.

VO: Republicans have 51 Senators. Democrats 49.

VO: Washington liberals are fired up.

KAMALA HARRIS: We will not tire in this process.

ELIZABETH WARREN: The future of America is at stake.

CORY BOOKER: We now must fight.

VO: If Phil Bredesen wins, Dianne Feinstein picks your judges. Bernie Sanders runs the budget. And Chuck Schumer runs everything.

VO: Stop the liberals. Stop Phil Bredesen.

    Funny thing if the Democrats take over the Senate. Nothing will change. More Costly Government will happen. But at least if the Demo’s win, then Grid lock may happen and that is good in the current political climate.

  • Timothy Skow says:

    Lets be blunt …. IF…… Di-Fi becomes Judiciary Committee Chair and Schumer the Senate Majority Leader ….THEN…. TN State Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris, who Trump has nominated for the Federal bench, will never get confirmed. This is about far MORE than just the Supreme Court.

  • James White says:

    It would be nice to get Norris out of the senate… Um…

  • Silence Dogood says:

    James, Folks, everything Federal does not revolve around the budget and spending. Judges are critical to the rule of law. Democrats use the Judiciary to take from us what they cannot get passed through Congress. Like border control, immigration control, Imminent Domain law, and so on. Never any gridlock in the Judiciary. So be careful with “Identity Politics Voting”. Gotta be more than a one issue voter.

  • MarLE says:

    One by one, every ad is shifting to the only positive worth mentioning: She is Not a Democrat. No mention of the heritage or club for growth scores!!!! All Trump talked about (besides himself) was protecting Senate Rep majority,

    • Stuart I. Anderson says:

      MarLE if you are interested in following a career path best of luck to you but I wouldn’t, if I were you, choose advertising. In a thirty second ad in which you are trying to appeal to citizens who don’t spend their time reading or responding to political blogs I wouldn’t breathlessly hit them with Marsha’s impressive Heritage Action or Club For Growth scores in order to get maximum bang for the buck no matter how impressive such an ad would be to me.

      This ad does brings to the fore precisely what Phil’s Operation Distraction is so desperate to hide from the 60%+ who voted for Trump. Hopefully Democrats’ embarrassing themselves over the Kavanaugh nomination will only serve as an exclamation point as to what’s at stake in this election.

      • MarLE says:

        Which is why I have said that YOU and Marsha would be best serve if YOU simply stuck to the winning AD message: She is Not a Democrat. The rest of it is questionable on its merit and has an overhead bubble that resembles blah, blah, blah. KISS

    What does the election have to do with the Rights of Women or Men? This Appointment of Kavanagh has to do with the interpretation the 1787 American Constitution as written, not as an “evolving document” to be changed at will as it is called by the socialist crowd backed by former nazi george soros. The left, Bredesen et al, knows they will not be able to win their illegal agenda in the courts if they do not control the courts. The left, Bredesen et al, cannot win on ideas and accomplishments, so they are left with subterfuge, lies and slime as their selling points. Anyone who can read and write possessing an I.Q. above that of a shovel handle should be able to understand this, unless, of course, they have an “agenda” which they would rather not publicize.

      Here’s a summary of Judge Kavanaugh’s take on Obamacare, written by Christopher Jacobs of The Federalist:

      In Kavanaugh’s view, the mandate could fit “comfortably within Congress’ constitutional powers,” Even as he ‘do[es] not take a position here on whether the statute as currently written is justifiable,’ Kavanaugh concludes that ‘the only potential Taxing Clause shortcoming in the current individual mandate provision appears to be relatively slight.

      Read that again, America: Brett Kavanaugh, the man Donald Trump wants to appoint to the Supreme Court, wrote in a judicial holding that the constitutional shortcomings of the individual mandate of Obamacare are “relatively slight.”

    • MarLE says:

      Why would a former nazi back socialism? The movements and their adherents were on opposite sides of the ideological spectrum?

      • James White says:

        Most of the really rich are socialist. Remember they plan to be the ruling class.
        David Rockefeller said he could do business with communists then opened a bank branch in Moscow.

        • MarLE says:

          cmjcd”s comment was that nazi soros backed socialists. My question, to her since she’s the only one who suggested that, was….why. Those two ideologies are at opposite polar extremes. In fact nazism, at its founding, was a response against Marxism.

          • Silence Dogood says:

            MarLE: My personal opinion is that Soros believes if he can disrupt an economy thoroughly enough he can enact a Nazi regime. It is easier to implement Socialism (free this and free that, and everyone is a victim) in a Democracy, and then weaken the economy (look at Venezuela), and then you can do anything you want. Like setup a Nazi regime. The army works for him because they, and their families, are starving to death. It is what I see.

          • Stuart I. Anderson says:

            George Soros has deep leftist convictions who uses his vast wealth to further leftist causes around the world. I only wish we had a right-wing reasonable facsimile.

            I think all of you should stop calling Soros a Nazi because he was Jewish and about 13 years old when the Germans occupied his native Budapest, Hungary which would make him a Jewish teenage Nazi which is silly. One of the ways he survived when so many Hungarian Jews were killed was by posing as a Christian with the help of a Hungarian official who was part of the Hungarian government that was allied with the Germans. It was a matter of survival rather than an ideological attachment to the Nazi cause.

            BTW, “Nazi” is an acronym for National Socialism in German. Hitler’s movement started out as a nationalist movement with distinct socialistic overtones. Hitler’s nationalism brought him into conflict with the internationalist communists so it began to attract the financial support of big business as a bulwark against communism. As Hitler began to rely more and more on the support of big business he shed the socialist part of his party’s ideology. This movement to the right was one of the causes of the “Night of the Long Knives” during which Hitler brutally purged his party of those who stubbornly clung to the socialist ideology that Hitler now found inconvenient.

    “I’ve talked repeatedly in this hearing about how technology will be one of the huge issues with the Fourth Amendment going forward,” said Kavanaugh, who serves on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
    Opening their six-minute tête-à-tête, Leahy began by asking the appellate court judge about what Kavanaugh wrote in November 2015 in a case known as Klayman v. Obama. In that case, a well-known conservative activist attorney, Larry Klayman, sued the then-president on June 7, 2013—the day after the Snowden revelations became public. The complaint argued that the National Security Agency’s telephone metadata program (“Section 215”), which gathered records of all incoming and outgoing calls for years on end, was unconstitutional.
    US District Judge Richard Leon ruled in favor of plaintiff and attorney Larry Klayman in December 2013 and ordered that the NSA’s program be immediately halted. But he stayed his order pending the government appeal, which reversed Judge Leon in August 2015.
    Klayman asked the appeals court to re-hear the case with all of the District of Columbia appellate judges, in what’s known as an en banc appeal. This was denied, and Kavanaugh separately agreed with that decision in a November 2015 concurrence.
    “I do so because, in my view, the Government’s metadata collection program is entirely consistent with the Fourth Amendment,” Kavanaugh wrote.

    It is little wonder that Marsha “Deep State” Blackburn would vote for 4th amendment violations, she already has, she voted for CISPA and FISA.

      To finish that conversation, James, please read:

      Carpenter v. United States involved a suspect, Timothy Carpenter, who was accused of leading an armed robbery gang that hit Radio Shack and other cell phone stores in Michigan and Ohio in 2010 and 2011. The government was able to warrantlessly obtain 127 days’ worth of his CSLI from his mobile provider, which detailed precisely where Carpenter had been during that time. The Supreme Court ultimately ruled earlier this year that, when the government seeks to obtain such a large volume of intimate information, it needs to get a warrant first in most cases.

      The impact of Carpenter is starting to be felt in cases around the country.

      “Do you think if Carpenter had been decided you would have written the concurrence you did in Klayman?” Leahy asked.

      “I don’t see how I could have,” Kavanaugh said.

      “Thank you, I agree with that,” the Vermont senator replied.

      So he was following an opinion from previous rulings by a higher court. Not his personal opinion based on his Constitutional law studies. Let’s be fair and accurate.

    James, I think the Libertarian candidate might be your best bet…
