Will YOU Save Freedom? Catch The Tea Party Wave

 

 "The penalty for not participating in politics is to be governed by your inferiors." - Plato

The Presidency is the big political prize. With the worst "president" ever as the incumbent, who is already campaigning, you would think he is in deep trouble, but he could actually win, especially if the GOP fumbles-- and they did.

Looks like we have Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro-Soebarkah-Bounel back and he will be much worse the second time around, full of himself, arrogant, spoiling for revenge, no more elections, "flexibility" for Vladmir, making energy prices "skyrocket," increasing Socialism, deploying Czars, borrowing, spending, QE, taxes,Supreme Court "Justices," especially if the Senate rolls over like last term.

 

For all practical purposes, we are down to only two viable candidates, AKA Obama and Romney. The battle is on.

 Mitt Romney, Nominated by GOP 8-28-12

 

 Mitt Picks Paul Ryan for VP

 

Gary Johnson, Libertarian Nominee

Ed Noonan, CA AIP Nominee

A stacked AIP convention ignored the will of the voters and picked Tom Hoefling as its nominee. Why should they be any different from the Republicrats?

 

- Mitt Romney- W- Bright, highly successful businessman/consultant, Romneycare issue, baggage, flip-flopped on choice, cap/trade, amnesty, now denying "warming," or is he? Opposes SB1070, RINO. Polling well. Choice of GOP hierarchy. Possible eligibility questions. Won NH, 2nd in SC. Won FL big.  CA Nominee and national nominee as of 8-28-12- Congrats!

- Gary Johnson- W- Former successful businessman (construction), 2-time former New Mexico Governor, anti-tax, anti-bureaucracy, Libertarian, pro-choice, more, more, more. Barred from debates. Left GOP to run as Libertarian. CA Nominee and national nominee- Congrats!

- Ed Noonan-W- American Independent Party. Constitutional Conservative. Challenges Obama's eligibility. Shares some of Ron Paul's monetary policy views, but more Conservative overall.  CA AIP Nominee- Congrats!

- Laurie Roth-W- American Independent Party- Singer, songwriter, talk show hostess (IRN-USA), actively challenges Obama's eligibility, work to make America energy independent, stop drug trade, go to only 2% consumption tax.

- John Dummett- W- CA govt. programmer, doesn't seem to have many qualifications, except common sense and intelligence, which I suppose puts him ahead of the incumbent, whose eligibility he actively  challenges, along with the 16th Amendment.

As far as I know, this only includes Republican and Democrat nominees.- G.M.

So, we're down to Romney. John Dummett is still running, but the big parties and media will make sure you don't hear much about him.  The third party candidates lack money, support and publicity to do much. Cody Robert Judy is the only opposition Democrat running with any visibility at all, but not TV or debates. Instead, he is more in the courts, suing Obama over his ineligibility to run, as are candidates such as Ed Noonan (AIP), Laurie Roth (I).  Republicans are eerily silent about that 300 lb. gorilla. even with very strong evidence to back it up. Unfortunately, millions are expected not to vote over their dissatisfaction with Progressive Republican nominee Romney. We caution you about that. PLEASE consider the alternative.  Are you willing to put an ineligible incumbent back in office to make your point?

We might as well start the vetting. Obviously, Obama doesn't make the cut, nor Hillary, if she tries to run. But, let's hear from members on the others.
Jared Law this from the912Project.us

BREAKING NEWS - 'Progressive' Huckabee Joins Obama, Soros, MSNBC; Lies About Glenn Beck!

"Bipolar politics has always been Huckabee's strongest suit. No one is better at saying one thing, doing the opposite and getting credit for both, of talking small government and actually promoting big government." - Ernest Dumas, the Arkansas Times

"Have people never heard of a housewarming? ... Can I afford the towels? Yes. That's not the point. They're excited that we have a new house and they wanted to do something nice for us." -- Janet Huckabee on her "bridal" registries

"There was a dog that apparently had mange and was absolutely, I guess, emaciated." -- Huckabee, discussing charges that his son David tortured and killed the dog

"Without question, [Huckabee] was making a conscious attempt to keep the state police from investigating his son [for the dog killing]." -- I. C. Smith, the former FBI chief in Little Rock

"There's a lot of support for a tax at the wholesale level for tobacco, and that's fine with me; I will very happily sign that...Others have suggested a surcharge on the income tax; that's acceptable; I'm fine with that. Others have suggested, perhaps, a sales tax; that's fine. Yet others have suggested a hybrid that will collect some monies from any one or a combination of those various ideas, and if that's the plan that the House and Senate agree upon, then you will have nothing but my profound thanks." - Huckabee, to the Arkansas Legislature,

On Mr. Huckabee's watch, state spending increased by 65.3 percent, three times the rate of inflation, and the number of state government workers increased 20 percent during his tenure. -The Washington Times, December 11, 2007

Mike Huckabee pardoned many violent criminals, including a Washington State Cop-Killer (Maurice Clemons).. Clemmons was serving a 60 year sentence when Huckabee granted clemency.

Mike Huckabee also pardoned/commuted the sentence of convicted rapists, including Wayne Dumond, who raped and murdered two more women after Huckabee helped spring him from prison.

Mike Huckabee squelched an investigation of his son, who was fired from his employment at a Boy Scouts camp for torturing and killing a stray dog.

Mike Huckabee has personally enriched himself by abusing his office; in other words, Mike Huckabee is a corrupt son of a gun:

He was investigated 16 times and cited five times by the Arkansas Ethics Commission for violating ethics rules. Two of those citations were for cash that the governor or his wife accepted but did not report. Huckabee's gifts peaked at $112,000 in 1999, including $23,000 worth of clothing; over half of that was given by one businessman who Huckabee appointed to a state board.

Huckabee made off with tens of thousands of dollars worth of state property, including furniture an audit confirmed was missing when Huckabee moved out of the Governor's mansion. Huckabee's wife claimed the audit was wrong, and the furniture must be there somewhere. The taxpayers paid to replace it, of course.

In 1999, Huckabee was sued for abuse of state funds, for using state funds for panty hose, barbecue, a dog house, dry cleaning, boat fuel, and alterations to his clothes. Huckabee settled out of court, agreeing not to do it again.

Huckabee used state police airplanes to shuttle himself and his family around the state scores of times each year, as well as trips to other states with early presidential primaries.

In 1994, Huckabee created a 'non-profit organization' called 'Action America,' which, in 2 1/2 years, paid Huckabee over $61,000 for giving speeches at events. This made it easier for donors to funnel unreported funds to the Governor.

Huckabee and his wife set up bridal registries at Dillards and Target for over $7,000 in housewares, and $1,000 in gift cards. State ethics laws prohibited the Huckabees from receiving gifts of more than $100 while he was doing the job of Governor of the state of Arkansas. But as you can imagine, there was an exception for wedding gifts. He and his wife had been married for three decades at this point.

He raised taxes more than Bill Clinton. Yes, THAT Bill Clinton. The former President and former Governor of Arkansas.

Mike Huckabee is ANYTHING BUT a Conservative. Here is an excerpt from an article that goes into great detail about some aspects of Huckabee's tenure as Governor of Arkansas:

--------

Ask Us About Our Governor

A primer on the Huckabee tenure as he embarks on a run for president.

by Ernest Dumas and Max Brantley | DECEMBER 21, 2006

(...)

• When Huckabee became governor in July 1996 the state government payroll was 43,380 employees. At the end of this October, it was 53,128, a gain of 22.5 percent. Next to the service sector, government has been the best job producer in the Arkansas economy.

• State tax rates have risen steadily, always with Gov. Huckabee’s backing, although the per capita state and local tax burden in Arkansas is still below the national average. The new taxes helped swell general and special revenues by 75 percent in 10 years, from $3.9 billion in 1996 to more than $6.8 billion in 2006.

• Arkansas’s general-obligation debt, negligible for the previous half-century, has exploded by almost $1 billion on his watch, always with his support and often at his beseeching. Public attitudes about public debt, of course, have changed dramatically since 1934, when Gov. J. Marion Futrell, a real paragon of conservative virtue, persuaded the state to amend the Constitution to erect barriers that he thought would forever prohibit higher taxes and debt. People now routinely bury themselves in debt for cars, appliances and homes so they are no longer troubled when the government wants to borrow, too. Huckabee asked the voters last month to let the state borrow another $150 million for the universities, and the voters obliged. The state colleges and universities already had spent some $1.25 billion on capital improvements the past 10 years.

The Cato Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington that believes in nothing but small government, took some of that into consideration in October when it pronounced Huckabee one of the worst governors in the country. It ranked the 50 governors on several small-government variables, mainly taxes. The authors of the study gave Huckabee an F for his second term and a D overall, but it placed him dead last on taxes because it said he had raised sales taxes by 20 percent (37 percent actually), motor fuel taxes by 16 percent and cigarette taxes by 103 percent.

It did not mention the big bed tax charged nursing homes and their private patients to expand Medicaid reimbursements, a hike in the beer tax, broader sales taxes on personal services, a 3 percent income surtax that was collected for two years or a variety of small imposts like driver’s license fees, all enacted with Huckabee’s support.

(...)

Worse for Huckabee’s presidential aspirations are the dire assessments of his work by the right-wing Club for Growth, a coterie of millionaire businessmen based in Washington, D.C., and Grover Norquist, who runs Americans for Tax Reform. Norquist organized the conservative coalition of fiscal and religious conservatives that has driven the national Republican agenda the past 10 years. Norquist has ridiculed Huckabee, calling him “a serial tax increaser.”

(...)

In Huckabee’s website account of his fiscal achievements, he emphasizes tax cuts (90 of them, compared with only 21 tax increases, he says).

Actually, there were only two real tax cuts — a reduction in personal income taxes in 1997 and a law excluding 30 percent of a person’s capital gains from taxation in 1999. The 88 others were the scores of bills granting small exemptions and meshing the state tax code with changes in the federal code, which the legislature passes every two years.

Mike Huckabee is Pro Amnesty and supports benefits for illegal aliens!

Posted on Tuesday, December 11 @ 07:54:59 EST

ALIPAC NOTE: Our archives indicate that Mike Huckabee supported in-state tuition benefits for illegal aliens and opposed ICE raids to round up illegal aliens working at Tyson Chicken plants in his home state of Arkansas. Tyson is a large contributor to Mike Huckabee's campaigns. He has now stated that he is against amnesty but for a path to citizenship which means he is one of those two faced doublespeak politicians we dealt with in DC earlier this year. Furthermore, Huckabee's recently released "Immigration Plan" says illegal aliens should have to leave as current law dictates, but he is promoting the unpopular and failed 'touchback' provision. Mike Huckabee wants illegal aliens to leave for a day and walk back in claiming they are now LEGAL. We are disappointed to see these nasty tricks from the Mike Huckabee Campaign for President.

Mike Huckabee
December 11, 2007
The Washington Times

Until he began shooting toward the top in the Iowa polls several months ago, Mike Huckabee was generally seen as a curiosity piece rather than a serious contender for the Republican presidential nomination. Mr. Huckabee was best known as a pro-life Christian and a minister from Bill Clinton's hometown who triumphed over obesity and an amiable man with a self-deprecating sense of humor — but not someone whose record or governing philosophy needed to be looked at closely.

Now that Mr. Huckabee has reached first place in Iowa polls, those days are over. His 10 ½ years as Arkansas governor and his conservative credentials are now relentlessly scrutinized, and Mr. Huckabee is under fire for substantial increases in taxes and spending by the Club for Growth and the CATO Institute. Numbers USA, a research and advocacy organization which opposes illegal immigration and monitors politicians' records on the issue, is sharply critical of his record as governor.

So, who exactly is Mike Huckabee? He is a 52-year-old ordained Southern Baptist minister from Hope, Ark., who was elected lieutenant governor in 1993 after Mr. Clinton resigned the governorship to become president. In 1996, Gov. Jim Guy Tucker, a Democrat and Clinton ally, was convicted in the Whitewater scandal and forced to resign. Mr. Huckabee succeeded him and held the governorship until the end of 2006, when he was barred by term limits from seeking re-election. Mr. Huckabee was questioned about the relevance of the Christian gospel regarding government and life-and-death emergencies. "When 75,000 evacuees came to my state from Hurricane Katrina, it was my Christian faith that said, 'We're not going to wait until paperwork is done to take care of these people.' These are fellow human beings, and I want them treated like people, not pieces of paper. It's why we made sure that they had a place to sleep and that we had food for them."

When it comes to dealing with emergency situations like Katrina, that sounds fair enough. But Mr. Huckabee's embrace of a large role for government goes well beyond this.

...the overall thrust of his record appears to be big-government liberalism. As governor, this included such things as: signing a sales-tax increase; supporting an Internet sales tax; opposing repeal of a sales tax on groceries and medicine; signing bills raising taxes on gasoline and cigarettes; and opposing a congressional ban on Internet taxes.

On Mr. Huckabee's watch, state spending increased by 65.3 percent, three times the rate of inflation, and the number of state government workers increased 20 percent during his tenure.

As for his positions on economic issues, Mr. Huckabee is a mixed bag. On the one hand, he has endorsed making the Bush tax cuts permanent. On the other hand, he has pleased environmentalists by endorsing a "cap and trade" system, which has proven to be a mess in Europe, to deal with global-warming emissions. He also has endorsed the massive Medicare prescription-drug entitlement; he was the only Republican presidential candidate who refused to support Mr. Bush's veto of the SCHIP health-care program expansion pushed by congressional Democrats; he is a supporter of No Child Left Behind, a vast expansion of the federal government's educational role; and he has joined Democrats in complaining that Republican tax policy is tilted toward the wealthy.

Mr. Huckabee has come under withering fire from critics of illegal immigration. Asked last month about complaints that he is "soft" on illegals, the former Arkansas governor said he opposed sanctuary cities and opposes amnesty, although he contradicted himself somewhat by adding that he believes illegal aliens can be put on a path to citizenship.

Asked on ABC Television's "This Week" about his Arkansas record on the issue, Mr. Huckabee replied: "You don't punish a child because a parent committed a crime, or committed a sin, you just don't do it." He didn't rule out extending this principle to the federal level, but suggested that he might view state and federal benefits differently. On Friday, Mr. Huckabee unveiled a plan for tougher immigration enforcement and border security, pledging to complete a border fence between America and Mexico by 2010. He also said that immigrants who failed to register within 120 days and then leave the country would be deported and barred from re-entry for 10 years.

With no experience conducting or voting on foreign policy issues, Mr. Huckabee's comments and writings are closely scrutinized. Within the past week, he has decried waterboarding of captured terrorists, called for shutting down the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and suggested that America could bolster its standing in the world by treating other nations with more "respect." You can bet that if Mr. Huckabee continues his surge in the polls, his opponents will go to great lengths to try to force him to give more structured, coherent explanations of his world view.

--------

Basically, Mike Huckabee is a tax & spend, pro-amnesty, 'progressive' Republican. Mike Huckabee was part of the problem, and remains so today, as he personally attacks and demonizes the most effective, valuable patriot in our movement: GLENN BECK.

MIKE HUCKABEE IS FURIOUS WITH GLENN — BUT SHOULD HE BE?

Posted on April 21, 2011 at 6:09pm by Jonathon M. Seidl

If you just read the headlines, Mike Huckabee and Glenn Beck are feuding. Glenn said some things about Mike’s political views and threw around the term “progressive.“ That prompted a response from Mike that include the words ”cancer“ and ”Nazi.”

Wow, that got out of hand quick.

So let‘s take a second to cut through it all and figure out what’s going on.

First, it’s important to know what Glenn said on radio two days ago. Here’s an audio excerpt (h/t Mediaite), with a transcript to follow later:



That’s the clip making the rounds courtesy of Media Matters. Now I‘m not sure if that’s the only excerpt Huckabee heard, but here’s the response he issued after that clip came out:

This week Glenn Beck has taken to his radio show to attack me as a Progressive, which he has said is the same as a “cancer” and a “Nazi.” What did I do that apparently caused him to link me to a fatal disease and a form of government that murdered millions of innocent Jews? I had the audacity—not of hope—but the audacity to give respect to the efforts of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign to address childhood obesity. I’m no fan of her husband’s policies for sure, but I have appreciated her efforts that Beck misrepresented—either out of ignorance or out of a deliberate attempt to distort them to create yet another “boogey man” hiding in the closet that he and only he can see. The First Lady’s approach is about personal responsibility—not the government literally taking candy from a baby’s mouth. He seems to fancy himself a prophet of sorts for his linking so many people and events together to describe a massive global conspiracy for pretty much everything. Sadly, he seems equally inept at recognizing the obvious fact that children are increasingly obese and that we now see clinical evidence of diseases in children that as recent as 20 years ago were found only in adults, such as Type 2 diabetes. The costs to our nation are staggering in increase health care expenses, but it even effects national security with now 75% of young men between the ages of 17 and 24 are unfit for military service primarily due to obesity! His ridiculous claim that John McCain and I collaborated and conspired in the 2008 campaign is especially laughable. Is he not aware that McCain and I were competitors—not cohorts? Beck needs to stick to conspiracies that can’t be so easily de-bunked by facts. Why Beck has decided to aim his overloaded guns on me is beyond me.

Okay, now that seems a little over the top. First, let’s take a deep breath. Second, a couple things worth pointing out.

For starters, Glenn never called Huckabee a “cancer” or a “Nazi.” That’s not in the audio, and it‘s not in the more complete transcript you’re about to read. Maybe at some time or some place and in a much different context, Glenn used some of those terms in the same sentence. But he hasn’t compared actual progressives to Nazis, and that’s not the context here. And context is always important.

Glenn did, however, call Huckabee a progressive Republican, just like people for years have called John McCain a progressive Republican. There’s no secret about that. And to be honest, Glenn backed his statement up with some examples, mainly that Huckabee has aligned himself with the nanny state polices surrounding Michelle Obama’s anti-child-obesity campaign. (And those policies are progressive — see here and here as just two examples)

So far, then, we have two exaggerations and a truth. Cancer, no. Nazi, no. Progressive Republican, yes. But now let’s look at the full transcript from that part of the show and see what else Glenn said. See, when you look at that you see that Glenn was actually complimentary of Huckabee and went out of his way to praise him on some things. Here are some of the quotes:

“Now, I will tell you somebody who I have nothing bad to say about this gentleman.”
“He’s not I don‘t think he’s for this kind of giant government.”
“Now, I think that Huckabee is truly deeply religious and I think he truly is a Christian man…”
“I think Mike Huckabee is sincere in his faith.”
“I like the fact that he’s a religious man.”
“Now, I’ve talked to him. I thought he was a fine guy. … He was great.”
“Believe me he’s no Barack Obama. He’s not even remotely close to that sort of thing.”


Now call me a conspiracy theorist, but ‘dem don’t sound like fightin’ words. And they’re not. In fact, it seems like Glenn‘s going out of his way to draw a distinction between Huckabee’s progressivism and, say, Barack Obama’s. Take a look at the (unedited) transcript yourself. Note that it encompasses more than the above audio, so it’s worth the read:

Glenn: … Now, I will tell you somebody who I have nothing bad to say about this gentleman. He is I’m not going to you know, I know he’s loved and a lot of people really support him and that is great. I think Mike Huckabee is the one, if you are somebody who understands progressives are on both sides of the aisle, I think Mike Huckabee is John McCain. I think Mike Huckabee is a guy who’s had Michelle Obama on and said, you know what? Your fat kid programs, they are great. They are great.

STU: I don’t think he said it exactly like that.

PAT: Well, look how closely he and McCain were aligned during the campaign.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: They got together to destroy Mitt Romney. That’s what they did last time. They seem to get along pretty well together.

GLENN: And he is a progressive. He look at his record. He is a progressive.

STU: He’s weird on we talked about this during the 2008. He’s, you know, a little he raised taxes in his state, he’s kind of overreaching with sort of the nanny sort of health style.

GLENN: Big time. Big time. He is the perfect quite honestly he’s the only one I think that is the perfect progressive candidate for the Republican Party. He’s the guy. He will play along with the party politics. He will get along to get along. He will move things along. He doesn’t want to disrupt giant government. He’s not I don‘t think he’s for this kind of giant government.

STU: No, no.

GLENN: But he will he’s John McCain. He will still do all of the policy things. He‘s perfect for the progressives because he’s also appealing to the religious side. And so you have to have the religious side. That’s why Obama has his religious outreach with Jim Wallis. Now, I think that Huckabee is truly deeply religious and I think he truly is a Christian man where Jim Wallis, I‘m not going to judge his soul but he’s a Marxist. I haven’t met a lot of Marxists that love Jesus. You know what I mean?

STU: It’s not their defining characteristic typically, no.

GLENN: Right. Where I think Mike Huckabee is sincere in his faith.

STU: Oh, yeah. There’s a lot of positives with Huckabee. A lot of people like him because, A, he’s a fantastic communicator and, B, he’s one of the only guys really out there, you know, who focuses more on the social issues and that’s something that not every candidate does. So I mean, I think a lot of people like him for that reason. But I don’t like some of his bigger government tendencies.

GLENN: I don’t like here‘s what I don’t like. I like the fact that he’s a religious man.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I don’t like the fact, whenever you couple religion with progressivism, it becomes dangerous. I don’t want somebody regulating and telling me about religion. Now, I‘m not saying that Huckabee is going to do anything to hurt my religion or anybody else’s religion, it just, I don’t like the combination no, no, let me just say this. I don’t like big government people. And Mike Huckabee is a big government person. Now, I’ve talked to him. I thought he was a fine guy. You know, he credited me with his win in Iowa last time because remember? He was on he was on the CNN show, gave him an hour.

STU: That’s right, yeah.

GLENN: And he made a lot of sense and he was great. He was great.

STU: Believe me he’s no Barack Obama. He’s not even remotely close to that sort of thing.

GLENN: He is not. He is not. But he is certainly, in my opinion, not a guy that, if you have a libertarian or small government bend to you. STU: Well, he’s bashed libertarians several times outwardly, yeah.


Interesting, isn’t it?

In the end, then, it seems that what we have here is Glenn pointing out some concerns about Huckabee’s positions (a completely legitimate and necessary thing to do), and then the media (i.e. Media Matters) getting a hold of it and making sure the sound bite does not include the praise lavished on the person behind those positions.

What it’s not is an all-out war between two prominent conservatives. It seems much more like an honest critique spun to sound like an ad hominem.

After all, that fits better into Media Matters’ narrative.


 
Dear Friend,

Yesterday at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, I delivered a foreign policy speech entitled “Americans and the World” where I discussed President Obama’s foreign policy – a policy premised on vague notions of hope and change that has scrambled America’s foreign policy relationships—both with our allies and our enemies.
  
I discussed our many challenges and put forth a series of 10 points to help our country reverse our dangerous foreign policy course, restore our greatness and reestablish America’s standing in the world.  I wanted to share that 10-point plan with you here today.
  • First, we need to begin by seeing the world the way it truly is.  We need to see evil for what it is, and confront it; and we need to see decency for what it is and nurture it.  Now is the time to not only be increasing our military preparedness but to finish the task of a comprehensive missile defense system.  While we are at it, we should restore our missile defense commitments to Poland and the Czech Republic.

  • Second, we need to understand we are in a war, a hot war as well as a war of ideas.   Failing to define our foes lest we be politically incorrect does not dissuade them from seeking our destruction. They know who they are and tell us, and they construe our efforts to obscure reality as signs of weakness and irresolution.  Such behavior causes despair among our allies and confusion here at home.

  • Third, we need a reinvigorated human intelligence apparatus in the Middle East so we can better understand who and where are enemies are and then identify opportunities to counteract them.

  • Fourth, we need to change our information operations abroad to promote our core values of freedom, equality, and democracy—just as we did with the Soviet Empire in the 1980s.  We are in a clash of civilizations, and we will ultimately win with ideas and ideals, not words of appeasement and not flimsy Hollywood culture.

  • Fifth, we must cease our verbal, moral, and diplomatic equivalence as between good and evil.  Syria does not deserve an ambassador; its protestors deserve support; Israeli housing starts should not be put on the same moral plane as Hamas terror attacks; and China should be challenged on religious liberty rather than be given a veto on the human rights activists we wish support.

  • Sixth, having supported popular sovereignty abroad, both this and the previous administration have erred in failing to sufficiently support the conditions of liberty and the institutions necessary for a successful democracy.  Too often we have acted as if liberty’s first order of business is a vote. Elections should be a consummation and not a commencement to democratic processes.

  • Seventh, we need to keep and expand our commitment to humanitarian aid, especially in Africa.  China and Islam are competing for the hearts and minds of much of Africa, and we cannot turn our back from the investment and commitments we have made.  I helped lead many of our efforts to address third-world debt and the global AIDS crisis, and our investments have paid off.

  • Eighth, we must stand by Israel, especially at a time when it appears increasingly to be standing alone.  The recent dislocation of the old order in the Middle East will usher in a new one , and anti-Israeli elements are working overtime to take advantage of the opportunity.  The danger will grow exponentially if Iran succeeds in securing nuclear weapons in the near future.

  • Ninth, the tradition of speaking up and out about prisoners of conscience and dissidents in prison, never mind American hostages, from the Middle East to Asia, needs to be restored.  When President Reagan instituted the policy of reminding the world and America that there were others in jails because of their beliefs it not only reminded us of our blessings, it gave dissidents a sense of hope, and the knowledge that someone cared about them, that a great country was on their side.

  • Finally, we need to have a national effort to restore the teaching of American history in our nation’s schools.  It is our children’s worst subject—they simply do not know their own story and thus when they are told ours is a history of aggression and immorality, they have no counter narrative to refute it. It is worth remembering that Ronald Reagan’s final wish in his farewell address was to ask America to instill in our youth a renewed “informed patriotism.”  Unfortunately, we ignored this lesson, and we are reaping the consequences.

 


God Bless!

Dear Supporter,

This Friday at 8 PM EDT Americans for Prosperity Foundation will host a Presidential Summit on Spending and Job Creation live from Manchester, NH.

Participating in the Summit will be Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, businessman Herman Cain, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum.

We’ll be streaming the summit live online at AmericansforProsperityFoundation.org and C-SPAN will also be showing the event live. This is the first opportunity the presidential candidates will have to detail their plans on reining in government spending, ending budget deficits, and eliminating the national debt. 

As moderator I will be asking each participant questions after their remarks. CLICK HERE if you have thoughts or questions that we should consider asking.

We’ve seen clearly where the current administration stands.  Simply put, when it comes to budget deficits and debt, President Obama’s policies have been bankrupting America. 

President Obama has increased discretionary spending by almost 25% during his first two years and over 55% when you include the failed $814 billion “stimulus” boondoggle passed in 2009. 

His health care takeover legislation, if not overturned by the courts or Congress, will mean trillions more in big government waste and bureaucracy along with higher taxes and health care costs for American families and businesses.    

Meanwhile, on his watch, Medicare has slipped still further down the road toward failure.

Tomorrow night AFP Foundation will host several presidential hopefuls who will take questions for the first time and detail their vision for a more prosperous America. Remember to go to AmericansforProsperityFoundation.org at 8 PM EDT tomorrow to watch this critical event.

Sincerely,

Tim Phillips

WOLF: Obamacare shouldn’t be replaced with Gingrichcare

Swapping one big-government program for a GOP version is no solution

 

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/apr/29/obamacare-shouldnt-...

Judson Phillips

Dark Horse rising.

(he's pushing Thaddeus McCotter, an unknown)


 

 

Polls confirm what has been obvious on Tea Party Nation’s forums and on other conservative websites throughout the country. 

 

If conservative voters are given a choice between the current announced or probable candidates and the choice “someone else,” someone else wins. 

 

There are some conservatives in the race people like.  Michele Bachmann remains a Tea Party favorite.  Herman Cain, fresh off an impressive performance at the South Carolina debate is also well liked among conservatives.   Despite the affection the Tea Party has for them, there is concern about their electability. 

 

There is also the list of bad candidates.  These include Romney, Gingrich, Huckabee, Johnson and Huntsman.  These are the establishment candidates who if elected, would probably govern right of center, but would offer no conservative blue print for the future.  They offer nothing new.  They do not want to dismantle socialism, only manage it.  Under any of these establishment candidates, socialism would not be reversed; only the growth of socialism would be slowed.

 

There are the unknowns, such as Pawlenty and Roemer.  Pawlenty who supported cap and trade and Roemer who is a conservative but is unknown and offers no real reason for anyone to vote for him. 

 

And there are the conservatives who either are not running or probably will not run.  This list includes Allen West and Sarah Palin.  While both politicians generate passion, they have not shown the ability to unify the conservative movement, a crucial concern if they were to run and possibly a major reason why neither will likely run.

 

Among the conservative faithful, there is a restlessness.  There is a feeling that we really need a Reagan conservative that is not yet out there. 

 

There is another individual who is starting to pick up buzz and some interest among conservatives and major conservative donors.   We have mentioned him before on Tea Party Nation.

 

Thaddeus McCotter.

 

McCotter has a solid conservative pedigree.  He opposed the Bush bailouts and TARP.  McCotter is almost the anti-politician, as he is not interested in celebrity.   Fox News talk show host Greg Gutfield said, “In my mind, he’s one of the few pols who seem less interested in impressing celebrities or making cheap points of sentimentality than preserving the freedoms unique to our delightful island nation.”

 

S.E. Cupp, conservative columnist and author wrote about McCotter, “Amid a sea of slick salesmen vying for the Oval Office, including the man who currently occupies it, McCotter’s disregard for personal glory, his contempt for power grabs and his ability to bring common-sense solutions to some of our most nagging national problems might not make him the darling of the political glitterati. It should, however, make him a candidate for President.”

 

McCotter has not exactly expressed interest in the job, but he has left the door open. 

 

While it is still early in the political season, we are moving to the point where the conservatives in the GOP need to agree on a candidate and support that candidate.  By early fall, this needs to be not an idea but a reality.  Almost every poll out there has Romney with a lead.  Mitt Romney may be the one Republican who can guarantee Barack Obama a second term.   Before we can stop a second Obama term, we must first stop a Romney nomination.

 

With the unease conservatives look at the current field, perhaps we do need to look outside of the field.  Thad McCotter is definitely a rising star and since the conservative movement is not unified behind someone right now, he definitely merits a strong look and perhaps some encouragement to jump in this race!

"There are 27 amendments in the Constitution but only one says 'shall not be infringed,'" Steve Toth said. "The Second Amendment is the amendment that keeps the people free."

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes

How can we stand up to someone that creates a 100 dollar Federal Reserve (FR) note for 2 cents and uses the face value of the note of 100 dollars to buy a 100 dollar U.S. Security where the government has to pay them 4% in interest at the end of the year?

These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”
