Let’s look at an opportunity for California’s U.S. Senate candidates to have an open public discussion on the issues affecting our state and our nation:

SHOT: The White House announced today that there is now clear evidence that the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11th were premeditated and orchestrated by Al Qaeda. The facts contradict the statement on the attacks made by Dianne Feinstein on September 13th that reversed her original position: (more…)

From Elizabeth Emken for U.S. Senate:

America has some of the finest hospitals, physicians and nurses the world has ever known. We also have a health care system that is struggling with issues of affordability and access.  We need a transformational realignment that moves us back toward a system that is affordable and once again, at its core, consists of a medical provider, and a patient, in an exam room.  (more…)

From Elizabeth Emken for U.S. Senate:

(ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – Elizabeth Emken, Republican challenger for U.S. Senate in California, today released the following statement regarding this morning’s employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

Shows Concern Over Growing Iranian Threat

ORANGE COUNTY, CA — Republican United States Senate candidate Elizabeth Emken today issued the following statement concerning the ongoing Iranian threat to Israel and America’s commitments in the region:

Iran continues to develop many of the elements and technologies for weapons of mass destruction and the systems needed to deliver them. (more…)

Grim Economic Numbers Continue to Show Democrats’ Policies Haven’t “Worked,” But Democrats Want Tax Hikes that Will Make Things Worse

Last week’s report on U.S. economic growth confirmed the economy is in the doldrums, struggling to regain momentum and create jobs—a far cry from President Obama’s claims that his policies “worked” and that “the private sector is doing fine”:

“ECONOMY WEAK IN SECOND QUARTER, GDP GROWS AT 1.5% RATE”: (Tim Mullaney, “Economy Weak in Second Quarter, GDP Grows at 1.5% Rate,” USA Today, 7/27/2012)

“UNEMPLOYMENT COULD STAY HIGH AS US ECONOMY SLOWS”: “High unemployment isn’t going away — not as long as the economy grows as slowly as it did in the April-June quarter.” (Martin Crutsinger, “Unemployment Could Stay High as US Economy Slows,” Associated Press, 7/27/2012) (more…)
