Tea Party Rising

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

The stakes have never been higher.

With the 2014 midterm election but a year away, 47% of Americans will be faced with one of the hardest choices they will ever make in a voting booth.

Will they side with the GOP Republicans or will they join the Tea Party Republicans?

Here is what they face.

The GOP…The ESTABLISHMENT Republicans or, as I and many fellow writers call them…RINO’s…have set the terms of their 2014 midterm races.

They want to crush the Tea Party.

Congressman Steve LaTourette of Ohio…a RINO…Puts it this way: “We’re going to be very aggressive and we’re going to get in their faces.” La Tourteet claims he and his fellow RINO’S intend to raise $8 million dollars to beat the Tea Party in his state.

Across the nation, the Establishment plans on running ATTACK ads AGAINST Tea Party Candidates.

They plan to AGGRESSIVELY attack such CONSERVATIVE organizations as the Heritage Action, Freedom Works and the Club for Growth.

In short…The GOP plans to do exactly what LIBERALS plan to do…


Therefore…I submit this question:


Don’t Waste the Tea Party Mandate

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

There WAS a mandate won in this election and it belongs, I believe, to the Tea Party but we’re in danger of drowning it out.

Yesterday was interesting for us on social media.

While most either received our article enthusiastically,there were some just too deflated to muster up the fighting spirit.

There were however, a handful of “also ran” supporters who were just hopping mad.

At me…

For supporting not their particular candidate.

Here’s a prime example:

Craig Andresen As I told you in our phone conversation Samm…Run for Congress. Your idesa are sound but your presidential campaign just wasn’t national enough. You can still help turn this country around from congress and I urge you to do so.

A Question for the Anybody But Mitt Crowd

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Over a considerable amount of time and through the ability to do copious amounts of research, I have become reasonably good at figuring out political quandaries.

I don’t always get it exactly right but, I honestly wish I weren’t right as often as I am.

Finding the answers to questions regarding political ideology, political history, how dots are connected and the end games of certain politicians have become a passion.

I’d like to think I’ve become pretty good at it.

Currently, however, the answer to a most perplexing political question eludes me.

I’m asking for your help.

There is no cash prize involved, like the sum given to the brilliant mind which created the $50.00 light bulb but rest assured, you’ll have my unending gratitude.

Please, somebody…Explain to me exactly how…

Splitting the 2012 presidential vote between Romney, Gingrich, Paul, Cain, Palin, Johnson, Dummett, Tittle and any other number of known or unknown candidates of personal choice will defeat Obama.

Conservatives agree, after all, that Obama needs to be defeated and that if he isn’t, the situation is dire.

In that, at least, there IS agreement.

Thus, the quandary…


Obama’s “Fundamental Transformation” to Imperial Rule

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

America is poised to the razor’s edge of an abyss the depths of which have no measure. Make no mistake, this is a fact.

We currently have a “president” who stands at that deadly precipice and orders the nation…”FORWARD.”

If what Obama did last Friday, with his immigration decree doesn’t wake you up, you are forever lost.

Allow me to be as clear and succinct as is humanly possible.

In November, there will be 2 names on the presidential ballot.



That’s it. That’s it no matter who would rather have someone else’s name there instead of Romney. I am one of them as of the field which ran, I would have much preferred Newt Gingrich. No matter what thread of hope onto which I hang, there will be no brokered convention. Newt will not be the nominee.

The exact same is a fact for the followers of Ron Paul. The supporters of Sarah Palin, Allen West, Perry, Cain, Santorum, Pawlenty, Bachmann and on and on.

It is just as true for those who support candidates who have never been heard of by people outside of their circle of friends. John Dummett Jr. comes to mind…A candidate with no name recognition whatsoever outside a small yet determined band of social media advocates.

None will be the nominee to face Obama but Mitt Romney.

That is a fact and those who don’t believe it had better start.

In November, on the presidential ballot will be 2 names. Obama and Romney.

Those who would cast a write in vote for someone other than Romney and then stand their ground and state that they voted for liberty are fools.

That too is a fact.

Every vote NOT cast for Romney in November IS a vote for Obama in that each such vote is a vote not in the Romney tally and THAT allows Obama to gain a crucial step ahead of the only other name on that ballot.

One need look no further back than Ross Perot.

Perot siphoned off enough votes from Bush 41 to keep Bush from defeating Clinton. Perot was just 1…JUST 1… “other candidate and this year, in the most important election since 1860, there are too many “other” candidates to count.

Each “other” candidate…All those different write ins, will garner, maybe, 1 or 2% of the vote IF they’re lucky. 10 “other candidates would split 10%-20% of the vote.

That is exactly the same as spotting Obama, 10%-20% in a race that has THE most dire consequences in HISTORY.

Those who would vote a write in and declare that they voted for liberty might just as well buy the bullets for the firing squad facing them and proudly declaring that they cleaned the rifles for them.

Here it is, straight forward and with no apologies.


Are you part of the 42%?

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Are you part of the 42%?  If you are, then you are rightly upset by all the rhetoric coming out of the incumbent’s administration and the talking heads on media.  If you are not part of the 42%, then consider yourself lucky.  For the all of you who are wondering what I am talking about, grab a beer, some popcorn and your calculator and read on…

Oh, and I refuse to use the man’s name when referring to the person occupying the seat of President.  I respect the office of the President, as one should.  I do not respect the man or his ideology.

Ok… So… Unemployment is at 8.2%. However, 88 MILLION people are not in the work force. Let’s compile some numbers here (according to the CIA World Factbook)…

  • US Population: 313.8 million (2012 abstract based on 2010 census and data derived comparing previous census data)
  • Population of working age (15-64): 209.2 million
  • Population NOT working: 88 million

And what is the “official” unemployment percentage? 8.2%.  That means that officially, ONLY 17.2 million people are not working.  Hmmmm  Does not add up.  What is the real percentage based on the numbers above?  Well, using the numbers above, you get a percentage of…wait for it…42%. Yes. 42% of people are not in the work force, according to those numbers. And I TRIED to use round numbers of the extrapolated numbers to be as generous as possible, but I am not willing to spin numbers for any reason.  I deal in fact, and the fact is our country is a LOT worse off than our government handlers are letting on.


If Issues Rule the Day, Conservatives Win in November

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Yesterday, in our article titled, “Obama on a High Wire,” we outlined the flip flopping of the Emperor as a signal of desperation regarding several recent issues.

The fact is, as Obama flips his positions, his policies continue to flop.

It’s time for the GOP candidates to stop attacking one another and start pointing out their individual fundamental differences with Obama.

While there is some danger in elevating to a “general election” campaign before the convention, this election year seems to be one bent on rule breaking. Obama feels safe in a lot of this because for the GOP candidates to go after him on certain issues, they open the door for counter attacks.

Here is the real problem. Show us a candidate who hasn’t flipped or flopped on an issue and we’ll show you a unicorn.

Rick Santorum and his different positions regarding right to work. Romney and Romneycare vs Obamacare. Newt on Global Warming. Ron Paul adding earmarks INTO bills just so he can then vote AGAINST the bill…All of them have their issues in this regard.


Media Silence on Obama Eligibility Raises Questions

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Since my article regarding the blow-by-blow account of the Georgia hearing on Obama’s eligibility to appear on that state’s ballot, one question has surfaced more than any other. This is a question which has been posed to me via social media, email and within the nearly 600 comments on that article.

The question is a simple one and a valid one.

Why has there been no media coverage of this?

Clearly, it’s a story.

A sitting President gets subpoenaed. Story.

A sitting President’s ability to be on a state’s ballot at risk. Story.

A sitting president’s attempt to dismiss the case denied. Story.

A sitting president ignores the subpoena. Story.

A sitting President’s attorney sends letter to Georgia Sec. of State saying he won’t participate. Story.

Sec. of State says don’t participate at your own risk. Story.

Hearing takes place, witnesses testify and evidence is presented with no refute from Sitting President’s attorney. Story.


First, let’s have a look at the media.

The alphabet networks, also known as the mainstream or elite media, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC etc. are all in the can for Obama or in his pocket. We all know that.

Why would they all of a sudden cover a story so potentially harmful to the guy who sends shivers up their collective legs?

This is the media arm of the Obama administration after all. These are the very people who refused to vet candidate Obama and anointed him their supreme leader. They went all in. They shielded Obama during the campaign, they have provided cover during his 3 years in office, they’ve been outwardly dismissive of any mention of his eligibility, they’ve labeled any who question it as nuts, mobs, terrorists, and worse.

At this point, when it actually gains a hearing before a judge and neither Obama nor his attorney show up even under subpoena, why would they now lend credibility to it?


Is it Time for Santorum To Exit? Don’t be Too Hasty!!!

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

After the amazing comeback by Newt Gingrich in South Carolina, a stunning 25 point turn around in just 5 days, and his landslide victory in yesterday’s primary, we have a whole new race going forward.

Tomorrow night, again, there will be but 4 on the debate stage in Florida.

Many now seem to believe it’s really a 2 man race and, it’s hard to argue that point.

Hard doesn’t mean impossible.

Ron Paul’s followers will get nasty when they read this but that’s not exactly a change of direction for them. They insist that Paul will win, that he’s the only one who is qualified, he’s able to walk on water etc.

Reality speaks volumes to all but them.

Ron Paul will not receive the nomination. His obtuse views of foreign policy just won’t allow it.

Then there are those, including Ron Paul’s followers who believe it’s high time Rick Santorum bows out. Santorum’s oh so narrow victory in Iowa and his lack of financial support just isn’t enough to keep him in they say.

Pretty much everybody except Rick Santorum’s ardent supporters say it’s time for Rick to bow out.

Pretty much everybody.

Not me.


One Rick Drops Out…The Other Supports SOPA?

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

And then there were 4 in a 2-man race.

In South Carolina, tonight, 4 will stand on the debate stage as Rick Perry has officially dropped out of the GOP race for the nomination.

Yes, 4 – but in reality, at least in South Carolina this Saturday, it’s a 2-man race between Romney and Gingrich.

Rick Santorum will come in 3rd and Ron Paul will be emptying the trash cans after the polls close.

That’s just the way it is.

As Perry drops out and throws his support to Newt, Santorum is left trying to bolster support from evangelicals but, it’s just not going to be enough. Not enough as well is the news this morning that Santorum actually won in Iowa.

What the Iowa numbers do, though they will never be 100% confirmed, is to keep Mitt from wining the first 2 states. That is something which had never been done before and regardless of what Iowa officials are calling a tie, Santorum’s plus 34 makes HIM the winner there.

It’s a win with an * for Santorum and a loss with an * for Romney as there are 8 precincts which lost their ballots most likely never to be seen again.

While all eyes now focus like lasers on South Carolina, Iowa has managed to relegate themselves OUT of the picture maybe permanently. Iowa will probably make some adjustments to the way they cast, count and tally Caucus votes in the future, but they will be thought of for a long time as the Florida of the heartland.


Top 10 Wildcards in the GOP Race

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

While the 5 remaining GOP candidates continue to jockey for position through the January primary calendar, one should not discount any number of possible wildcards yet to be played.

This Saturday, South Carolina votes and that race is getting tighter after last night’s debate. Depending on the South Carolina outcome, we may well just be watching the beginning of the real race to the nomination.

After Saturday, it’s easy to see Rick Perry dropping out. His financial backing has evaporated and his slow start with debates never allowed him to gain the sort of traction he enjoyed in the weeks before he actually entered the race.

This is not to say he will leave empty handed as he does have some die hard supporters.

Wildcard 1…Who will Perry endorse when he drops out?

It seems unlikely he’ll get behind Romney and impossible to believe he’ll throw his support to Ron Paul. That leaves Santorum and Gingrich – and let’s face it, Perry, Gingrich and Santorum have been splitting up the “Not Romney” vote for several weeks.
