Iraq Can't Defend Itself Fully Before 2020 - Says Lieutenant General Babakir Zebari

Iraq Can't Defend Itself Fully Before 2020 -General

Iraq's defense chief has said his military will not be fully ready to defend Iraq from external threats until 2020 to 2024, according to a U.S. inspector's report released on Sunday.

Lieutenant General Babakir Zebari has repeatedly warned that Iraq's security forces, rebuilt after the 2003 invasion that ousted strongman Saddam Hussein, would not be ready for years.

President Barack Obama announced on October 21 that American troops would fully withdraw from Iraq by year-end, as scheduled under a 2008 security pact between the two countries.

Both Iraqi and U.S. military leaders have said the army and police are capable of containing internal threats from Sunni insurgents and Shi'ite militias that launch scores of attacks monthly, but that they lag in external defense.

"General Zebari suggested that the Ministry of Defense will be unable to execute the full spectrum of external-defense missions until sometime between 2020 and 2024, citing ... funding shortfalls as the main reason for the delay," said the report from the U.S. Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR)

Zebari said the air force would not be able to defend Iraqi airspace until 2020 and is not capable of supporting ground combat operations, citing a long-delayed deal to buy F-16 warplanes from the United States, the SIGIR report said.

Rick Perry Has 10 Year Track Record Of Appointing Conservative Judges

The single biggest consideration in a presidential candidate IMHO is their choice of Supreme Court Justices. Perry has a 10 yr track record of appointing nothing but conservatives - No Harriet Myers or David Souters. Only one judge that he has appointed has ever lost reelection. THERE IS NO GUESSING AS TO WHAT KIND OF JUDGE HE WILL APPOINT.


Supreme Court Is Elected, but Bears Perry’s Stamp

New York Times

In Texas, virtually all judges are elected. But since he took office in 2000, Gov. Rick Perry has picked most of the winners on the state’s highest civil court, the Texas Supreme Court.

For example, in June 2010 Mr. Perry appointed Debra Lehrmann to fill out the term of Harriet O’Neill, who had stepped down. Last November, in her first general election, Ms. Lehrmann went on to handily win a six-year term

To date, only one of Mr. Perry’s 10 Supreme Court appointees has lost a subsequent election to the court. In 2002, Xavier Rodriguez was defeated in the Republican primary, his first. Observers at the time attributed the loss to his Hispanic last name.

Like his predecessors “for generations,” according to Judge Don Willett of the State Supreme Court, Mr. Perry has had the opportunity to appoint so many justices in part because of a financial disincentive for judges to remain on the bench once they are eligible to retire with full state benefits and a pension. Salaries in the private sector can be very alluring.

“The salary economics are pretty stark,” Judge Willett said in an e-mail, adding, “It’s unfortunate when elected officials, judges included, exit before serving their full terms, but the math is unrelenting.”

Second, running as an incumbent, even a newly minted one, has advantages. Donors and lobbying groups are reluctant to go against a sitting justice, or one who has the governor’s stamp of approval.

Whatever the cause, the result is a mostly Perry-appointed Supreme Court that Alex Winslow, the executive director of the liberal consumer advocacy group Texas Watch, said had upheld the governor’s “staunchly pro-defendant and anti-consumer” ideals. (The state’s highest court in criminal matters is the Court of Criminal Appeals.)

Mr. Winslow’s organization analyzed the Supreme Court’s decisions during the 2008-9 term and found that it sided with consumers in 27 percent of cases involving an individual against a corporation or government agency — and it reversed jury verdicts in 72 percent of cases.

But Todd Olsen, a Republican consultant who runs judicial campaigns and is a former vice president of Karl Rove & Company, argues that studies trying to prove that the justices vote as a “Perry block” are problematic and do not account for all variables.

“I don’t think there’s anything clear there,” Mr. Olsen said. “It’s really hard to do a study like that. There are judges who have all had lots of experience. That’s the one thing that is in common among all of them."

Judge Willett took over his predecessor’s six-year term with 15 months remaining when Mr. Perry appointed him in 2005. He said the governor had chosen judges who reflected his judicial philosophy, which Judge Willett described as “unabashedly conservative.” Mr. Perry, he said, understands the importance of judicial appointments and would carry that understanding into the White House were he elected president.

“If you’re president, it’s often your court appointments that seal your legacy with a capital L,” the judge said. “I’m confident Governor Perry gets that, consummately.
“He doesn’t do squishy. His judicial picks, from the Supreme Court on down, will not be philosophical ciphers, but impeccably credentialed conservative stalwarts who act judicially by adjudicating, not politically by legislating.”

For me Perry gets a resounding YESSSSS for President.

Mitt Romney, the pretzel candidate .... By George F. Will

Mitt Romney, the pretzel candidate

By George F. Will

Washington Post

The Republican presidential dynamic — various candidates rise and recede; Mitt Romney remains at about 25 percent support — is peculiar because conservatives correctly believe that it is important to defeat Barack Obama but unimportant that Romney be president. This is not cognitive dissonance.

Obama, a floundering naif who thinks ATMs aggravate unemployment, is bewildered by a national tragedy of shattered dreams, decaying workforce skills and forgone wealth creation. Romney cannot enunciate a defensible, or even decipherable, ethanol policy.

Life poses difficult choices, but not about ethanol. Government subsidizes ethanol production, imposes tariffs to protect manufacturers of it and mandates the use of it — and it injures the nation’s and the world’s economic, environmental, and social (it raises food prices) well-being.

In May, in corn-growing Iowa, Romney said, “I support” — present tense — “the subsidy of ethanol.” And: “I believe ethanol is an important part of our energy solution for this country.” But in October he told Iowans he is “a business guy,” so as president he would review this bipartisan — the last Republican president was an ethanol enthusiast — folly. Romney said that he once favored (past tense) subsidies to get the ethanol industry “on its feet.” (In the 19th century, Republican “business guys” justified high tariffs for protecting “infant industries”). But Romney added, “I’ve indicated I didn’t think the subsidy had to go on forever.” Ethanol subsidies expire in December, but “I might have looked at more of a decline over time” because of “the importance of ethanol as a domestic fuel.” Besides, “ethanol is part of national security.” However, “I don’t want to say” I will propose new subsidies. Still, ethanol has “become an important source of amplifying our energy capacity.” Anyway, ethanol should “continue to have prospects of growing its share of” transportation fuels. Got it?

Every day, 10,000 baby boomers become eligible for Social Security and Medicare, from which they will receive, on average, $1 million of benefits ($550,000 from the former, $450,000 from the latter). Who expects difficult reforms from Romney, whose twists on ethanol make a policy pretzel?

A straddle is not a political philosophy; it is what you do when you do not have one. It is what Romney did when he said that using Troubled Assets Relief Program funds for the General Motors and Chrysler bailouts “was the wrong source for that funding.” Oh, so the source was the bailouts’ defect.

Last week in Ohio, Romney straddled the issue of the ballot initiative by which liberals and unions hope to repeal the law that Republican Gov. John Kasich got enacted to limit public employees’ collective bargaining rights. Kasich, like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, is under siege. Romney was asked, at a Republican phone bank rallying support for Kasich’s measure, to oppose repeal of it and to endorse another measure exempting Ohioans from Obamacare’s insurance mandate (a cousin of Romneycare’s Massachusetts mandate). He refused.

His campaign called his refusal principled: “Citizens of states should be able to make decisions . . . on their own.” Got it? People cannot make “their own” decisions if Romney expresses an opinion. His flinch from leadership looks ludicrous after his endorsement three months ago of a right-to-work bill that the New Hampshire legislature was considering. So, the rule in New England expires across the Appalachian Mountains?

A day after refusing to oppose repeal of Kasich’s measure, Romney waffled about his straddle, saying he opposed repeal “110 percent.” He did not, however, endorse the anti-mandate measure, remaining semi-faithful to the trans-Appalachian codicil pertaining to principles, thereby seeming to lack the courage of his absence of convictions.

Romney, supposedly the Republican most electable next November, is a recidivist reviser of his principles who is not only becoming less electable; he might damage GOP chances of capturing the Senate. Republican successes down the ticket will depend on the energies of the Tea Party and other conservatives, who will be deflated by a nominee whose blurry profile in caution communicates only calculated trimming.

Republicans may have found their Michael Dukakis, a technocratic Massachusetts governor who takes his bearings from “data” (although there is precious little to support Romney’s idea that in-state college tuition for children of illegal immigrants is a powerful magnet for such immigrants) and who believes elections should be about (in Dukakis’s words) “competence,” not “ideology.” But what would President Romney competently do when not pondering ethanol subsidies that he forthrightly says should stop sometime before “forever”? Has conservatism come so far, surmounting so many obstacles, to settle, at a moment of economic crisis, for this?

Wild Thing's comment........

I love how calmly Perry speaks and answers the questions in the video above.

Toward the end of the interview he takes questions and some of the stupid questions I have heard several times online that have been answered sooooo many times. But I realize that is how people are when they want a rino and not a conservative that has spoken the truth and the voter keeps ignoring it. But Perry does an awesome job handling these IMO idiots. hahaha God bless Rick Perry.

Just to let you all know for those that might be interested........Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace , Gov Perry will be on for the full hour!

Reporters Put Romney on the Couch..."Anderson Anderson" LOL

Reporters Put Romney on the Couch

The Atlantic Wire

Conservative voters don't like Mitt Romney because he seems insufficiently committed to their ideals, but reporters like that he offers them an opportunity to play psychologist. Bow-tie-wearing conservative columnist George Will is so outraged that Romney is a "recidivist reviser of his principles" that he's moved to write in all caps in his next column. But what really gets under non-movement journalists's skin is how lame the candidate is, and periodically a psychoanalytical profile of the former Massachusetts governor is written to explain why he can't inspire passion from anyone.

The New York Times' Ashley Parker writes Friday that Romney's problem is that he likes rules too much. While some pundits cheered Romney's rare aggressive moments this year -- shouting down an angry voter, making fun of Rick Perry at the debate -- Parker says those moments reveal Romney's "inner gendarme." When Perry interrupted Romney's 30-second response at the most recent debate, Romney appealed to the CNN debate moderator, Anderson Cooper. Parker confides, "it has become something of a running joke among the traveling press corps to call out 'Anderson? Anderson?' when things go awry." Other examples of Romney's dorky love of rules: when his campaign says no reporter questions at an event, he won't take reporter questions. And he and his wife were observant Mormon teenagers, they never shared a bed when they went to a lakehouse together. "Secretly bunking up, of course, would have been breaking the rules," Parker concludes.

Newsweek's Andrew Romano says Romney's great on paper, but when "real human beings aren't kept at a respectful distance," Romney doesn't shine. He sets this scene at the Iowa state fair in which Romney is munching on a pork-chop-on-a-stick the whole time, transcribing a long and excruciating bit of small talk with a voter. ("[Romney] took a bite, and then, still chewing, struck up a conversation with the nearest retiree, if 'conversation' is the right word for what Romney does with voters, which usually involves repeating whatever they say to him immediately after they say it. ... 'That’s the best thing at the fair," the retiree said ... 'Is that the best thing at the fair?' Romney repled."). Given that all small talk is unbearable and embarrassing and looks stupid when transcribed, this isn't quite fair. But Romano goes on to diagnose Romney's problem -- he's "not very good at winning votes" -- as a symptom of his lame personality and inability to be like his dad. He talks to social science researchers who say Romney's too introverted and conscientious to be liked by voters. Romano say it's a "cliché" that Romney seems like a clone of his dad. George Romney headed American Motor Company before being twice elected governor of Michigan in the 1960s; he ran for president, lost, and was appointed secretary of Housing and Urban Development. "There is one detail, however, that no one ever bothers to mention: personality-wise, George and Mitt didn’t have all that much in common," Romano writes. (Actually, a lot of people mention this.)

The contrast between father and son couldn’t be clearer. George barreled impulsively ahead, confident that he could convince anyone of anything because he’d always convinced them before; Mitt, on the other hand, behaves like a man who was born on third base but worries that he’s about to make a mistake that will send him back to second. ... “George was a Horatio Alger figure,” says Walter DeVries, who oversaw the elder Romney’s campaigns and served as a close adviser in Lansing. “He turned those blue eyes on you and you did what he wanted. Mitt is different. He’s been given the world, and he seems afraid of losing it.”

Politico's Ben Smith, too, says Romney's operating in "George Romney's shadow," Smith reports. Smith points to a New York Times' profile from 2007 that argues the candidate's problem is that he wants to be like his risk-taking dad but he's really more like his cautious mom. Smith spoke to the elder Romney's former aides, who said "George was much more willing to take risks than Mitt seems to be." George was "brash," "gutsy," while Mitt isn't "the kind of person who takes a lot of chances," but instead is "gun shy." And why is he gun shy? Because George's presidential chances were destroyed when he said he'd been brainwashed on the Vietnam war in 1968. The lesson both Romano and Smith draw is that while the elder Romney was a gifted politician who didn't become president because of one off-the-cuff remark, Romney is a terrible politician because he's afraid to say anything off the cuff. But George Romney won only one more election than Mitt Romney has so far.


Wild Thing's comment......

I would love to know who the heck is voting in these polls? LOL Romney must be paying people to vote, clear their cache and vote again because it is really weird that he stays on top 99% of the time. hahahahha

And as far as the GOP picking Romney FOR us, if they keep this up Obama will win for sure. I have seen too many people online posting in forums and facebook they will not vote at all if it is Romney.

Thug Tactics Of Michelle Obama:“This is going to require each of you to grab somebody by the shoulders and make them understand .."

The Daily Caller

The president is facing a very tough re-election campaign, first lady Michelle Obama told audiences at three Florida fundraisers on Thursday.

“This is going to require each of you to grab somebody by the shoulders and make them understand what’s at stake; how their self-interest is directly tied … It’s up to each of you to work like you’ve never worked before,” Mrs. Obama told an afternoon crowd of 200 people at the waterfront Tampa home of property developer Joel Cantor.

She used the same mix of threats and promises at a lunchtime fundraiser in Jacksonville. “This is not a joke. The choices are clear. We need you fired up and ready to go, working hard every minute of the day,” she said at the end of her stump speech. “We don’t have time to joke around. You got to shake people up. You got to get them ready to roll. We can do this.”

~ snipet ~

Every event ended the same way, with Ms. Obama rallying her fans, and calling on them to make a big personal commitment to the Democratic Party’s leader for one more campaign.

“He cannot do this alone,” she declared. ”He needs your help. He needs you out there, understanding these stakes, helping others who might be lost and confused … He needs you to take those ‘I’m in’ [registration] cards, fill them out, sign up, get your friends, your neighbors, your colleagues, your congregation members.
“Shake them up. Convince them to join in this effort and to invest just a little part of their life each week to this campaign. That’s what Barack Obama needs from you. “

Nancy Pelosi Not Making A Judgment Till She Sees The Package...a Fuller Package ~ LOL

“It’s no use asking me about specific things until we see the whole package,” Pelosi said Thursday during a press briefing in the Capitol. “I’m not making any judgment about any package until I see the fuller package that it’s a part of.”

Pelosi stays mum on proposed Medicare cuts in Dems' supercommittee plan

The Hill

As a growing number of liberal Democrats are attacking a plan from supercommittee Democrats to slash Medicare benefits, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is being careful not to wade too deeply into the controversy.

"It's no use asking me about specific things until we see the whole package," Pelosi said Thursday during a press briefing in the Capitol. "I'm not making any judgment about any package until I see the fuller package that it's a part of."

Still, the California Democrat reiterated her party's insistence on a "balanced" deficit-reduction plan, suggesting that she and her caucus won't support a package that fails to spread the pain of austerity across a class spectrum.

"It's not fair to say to a senior, 'You're going to pay more for Social Security,' and we're not going to touch a hair on the head of the wealthiest people in our country," Pelosi said.

On Tuesday, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) presented Republicans on the deficit panel with a sweeping proposal that includes hundreds of billions of dollars in Medicare cuts and more than $1 trillion in new tax hikes — a package approaching the "grand bargain" that was negotiated over the summer by President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

Dictator Obama To RULE By Executive Orders

Carney: Obama Exercising His Executive Authority To Help Americans


What gives the president the right to [enact measures] by executive order,” NBC’s Mike Vaccaro asked White House press secretary Jay Carney today.

“The things [Obama] is doing administratively, through executive powers are things he can do, the things that do not require legislative action so he is exercising that power,” Carney responded.

Carney says Obama has been doing this throughout his entire presidency and it is only newsworthy at this point since it’s “obvious to everyone” that the Congress is dysfunctional and acting as “obstructionists.”

“He has done and will continue to take the kinds of actions he can, as president, without Congress, to help Americans. To help them deal with this economy. To help them deal with their debt, deal with their mortgages, and through a variety of other measures that he has taken and will take,” Carney told Vaccaro.

New Low: 28% Give Obama Good or Excellent Marks on Economy

Rasmussen Reports

Perceptions of President Obama’s handling of the economy – the most important issue on voters’ minds – have fallen to a new low.

The latest national telephone survey finds that 28% of Likely Voters believe the president is doing a good or excellent job on the economy. While this finding has been hovered around 30% since early August, it’s the lowest level measured of Obama’s presidency.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on October 24-25, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

With NO Grasp Of The Constitution Herman Cain Says He Would Autograph Life Amendment

Cain would autograph life amendment


Herman Cain tried to clean up the running confusion over his position on abortion last night, but in the meantime opened questions about his grasp of the Constitution.

In an interview with David Brody last night, Cain said he'd sign a pro-life constitutional amendment if it crossed his desk as president.

“Yes. Yes I feel that strongly about it. If we can get the necessary support and it comes to my desk I’ll sign it," he said. "That’s all I can do. I will sign it.”

The only problem with that statement? Presidents don't sign constitutional amendments -- they're passed in Congress and then need to be ratified by the states, and the president plays no formal role in the process.

Candidates have in the past pledged to support such an amendment, but it's not clear what signing one would mean.

Wild Thing's comment......

Cain has no clue how government functions or what the president does.

I'm ashamed to watch Cain interviewed. He doesn't know what he is talking about. He is not a bad man I am not saying that, but he is just not the person to be in the most powerful office in our land.

Paul Ryan on the Perry Plan: ‘I Can Tell You This: It Would Grow The Economy’

Paul Ryan on the Perry Plan: ‘I Can Tell You This: It Would Grow The Economy’

The Corner

By Avik Roy

In a conference call today sponsored by the Heritage Foundation, Paul Ryan answered some questions regarding the Perry plan for an optional flat tax.

Ryan once proposed an optional flat tax, with two brackets of 10 and 25 percent. “I can tell you this: it would grow the economy,” Ryan said of the Perry plan. “This enters the good stage of the campaign . . . where the candidates are putting forth actual ideas and bold solutions.”

Ryan made two counter-arguments, one practical and one political, against the concern raised by Shannen Coffin and others that an optional flat tax will increase the complexity of the tax code instead of reducing it. “The practical argument is, people have their lives organized around the current code . . . You’ve got to give people time to adjust and prepare. When you completely convert over to a system by halting a tax expenditure, you [introduce] a lot of economic dislocation to the economy . . . You can smooth that transition.”

Secondly, said Ryan, the optional approach blunts the power of the “tax expenditure lobby” that otherwise persuades Republicans to block fundamental tax reform. He cited an episode from the mid-2000s, when Republicans controlled the House, the Senate, and the presidency, and couldn’t pass fundamental tax reform, because lobbyists convinced Republican members of the House Ways & Means Committee to protect various tax expenditures.

Finally, a point that didn’t come up in the call is that, under Perry’s proposal, individuals who choose to file under the flat-tax process will not be able to go back into the old system. Hence, the idea is to stimulate a voluntary, but unidirectional, migration over to a flat-tax system.

Perry Flat Tax Plan Wins Conservative Fans

Rick Perry some TEA Party participants in Fort Worth who refuse to drink the Washington Kool-Aid ( 2010)

Perry Flat Tax Plan Wins Conservative Fans


Texas Gov. Rick Perry was widely praised by conservatives on Tuesday as he issued his flat tax plan which he hopes will revive his struggling campaign for the White House.

The plan, which reduces corporate and income taxes to 20 percent, would “immediately add trillions of dollars in new wealth to the economy,” Club for Growth president Chris Chocola said, while of Americans for Tax Reform leader Grover Norquist called it “a great step forward.”

The plan would allow taxpayers to pay at the current rates or to adopt the flat tax plan. During his speech Perry waved a postcard saying that would be the size of the average American’s tax return as he compared it with a tax code of 72,000 pages. He claimed the plan’s very simplicity would save $483 billion in tax compliance costs.

“Each individual taxpayer will have a choice,” he said. “You can continue to pay your taxes, as well as the lawyers and accountants, or you can file on a postcard.”

Perry’s plan also eliminates the death tax and taxes on social security payments, while maintaining deductions for mortgage interest, charitable giving and state and local taxes for families earning less than $500,000. It increases standard deductions to $12,500. It also gets rid of the long-tern capital gains tax.

It would give corporations a one-off opportunity to repatriate earnings from abroad – which he estimated at $1.4 trillion – with a reduced tax rate of 5.25 percent. He called that, “The kind of economic stimulus that President Obama could have achieved if he wasn’t so hell-bent on passing big government schemes that have failed American worker.”

Perry said his plan would “shut down the cottage industry of corporate tax evasion,” and offer an incentive for companies to invest once more in America.

“The flat tax will unleash growth, but growth is not enough,” said Perry in his speech. “We must put a stop to this entitlement culture that risks the financial solvency of this country for future generations.”

He said every child born in America immediately owes the federal government $46,000.

In his Wall Street Journal article Perry said, “Fixing America's tax, spending and entitlement cultures will not be easy. But the status quo of byzantine taxes, loose spending and the perpetual delay of entitlement reform is a recipe for disaster.

“Cut, Balance and Grow strikes a major blow against the Washington-knows-best mindset. It takes money from spendthrift bureaucrats and returns it to families. It puts fewer job-killing regulations on employers and more restrictions on politicians. It gives more freedom to Americans to control their own destiny. And just as importantly, the Cut, Balance and Grow plan paves the way for the job creation, balanced budgets and fiscal responsibility we need to get America working again.”

Chocola immediately hailed the proposal. “A Flat Tax like the one proposed by Perry would unleash years of economic growth if it is passed into law,” he said.
“Perry clearly understands that revitalizing the economy should start with a complete overhaul of a tax code that has nearly choked economic growth to death. Conservatives looking for a champion to carry the banner of a pro-growth tax reform will surely rally behind this bold proposal.”

Norquist tweeted his reaction. “TX Governor Rick Perry’s flat tax alternative is great step forward. Doesn’t create a VAT or sales tax that could grow.”
In a second tweet, Norquist added, “Perry’s flat tax has the classic lines of a Steve Jobs’ product. Seamless. ….and Steve Forbes likes it. I’ll take two.”

Forbes – who ran for president on the GOP ticket in 1996 and 2000 with a flat tax as his main platform – is an adviser to Perry and helped draw up the plan. He called it a “win-win all around,” because of its simplicity.
Forbes said the time has come for a flat tax. “People want it, they hunger for it,” he told Fox News. “You saw the reaction to Herman Cain’s plan, even with the sales tax part of it. Rick Perry does not have a sales tax, which is going to make the plan even more appealing.” “It’s going to be very exciting,” he added. “A very low rate, generous exemptions for adults and for children, make it worthwhile to invest in America again, drastically simplifying the tax code, lowering the corporate tax rate.”

CATO scholar Daniel J. Mitchell has reviewed the plan, and gives Perry a solid B+: "As a long-time advocate of a pure flat tax, I'm not happy that Perry has deviated from the ideal approach. But the perfect should not be the enemy of the very good. If implemented, his plan would dramatically boost economic performance and improve competitiveness. All things considered, though, I prefer the flat tax. The 9-9-9 plan combines a 9 percent flat tax with a 9 percent VAT and a 9 percent national sales tax, and I don’t trust that politicians will keep the rates at 9 percent. The worst thing that can happen with a flat tax is that we degenerate back to the current system. The worst thing that happens with the 9-9-9 plan, as I explain in this video, is that politicians pull a bait-and-switch and America becomes Greece or France." Source CATO Institute

Rick Perry's Tax Plan is Great

October 25, 2011

For complete transcript PLEASE JUST CLICK HERE

RUSH: Rick Perry announced his tax plan today, which I'll go on record as saying I, El Rushbo, think is great. It's fabulous. I like it.


In fact, the president of the Club for Growth, Chris Chocola, called Rick Perry's new plan "massively pro-growth" in a statement today.

"Rick Perry’s plan for tax reform would be massively pro-growth. A Flat Tax like the one proposed by Perry would unleash years of economic growth if it is passed into law. Furthermore, eliminating the tax on dividends and capital gains would immediately add trillions of dollars in new wealth to the economy, benefiting all Americans. Perry clearly understands that revitalizing the economy should start with a complete overhaul of a tax code that has nearly choked economic growth to death. Conservatives looking for a champion to carry the banner of a pro-growth tax reform will surely rally behind this bold proposal."

Joe Biden Wants Reporter Investigated Because He Dared to Question His Rape References

The Hill

Joe Biden’s office has complained to the Senate press gallery about a confrontation the vice president had with a conservative journalist last week on Capitol Hill.

Biden aides asked whether Senate rules were broken in the wake of the contentious exchange between the vice president and the reporter.

Jason Mattera, who works for Human Events, a conservative magazine, used a pretext to catch Biden off guard in a Senate hallway and grill him on claims the vice president has made about jobs legislation.

Biden’s office has also contacted the standing committee of correspondents, which oversees the gallery, regarding whether Mattera broke the rules by ambushing him.

Heather Rothman, the chairwoman of the gallery’s standing committee, said the matter is under review.

Wild Thing's comment........

My Tax and Spending Reform Plan ..."Cut, Balance and Grow" By Rick Perry

11 am EST economic speech in Gray Court, SC and 3 pm ET press conference at the statehouse in Coumbia, SC.


Tuesday, Oct. 25

** On Tuesday morning, Gov. Perry will unveil the next pillar of his jobs/economic plan at ISO Poly Films and later in the afternoon he will hold a press conference at the South Carolina State House.

You can tune in this morning at 11a.m. Eastern for live stream live video of our "Cut, Balance and Grow" announcement:

** He is also scheduled for an interview on the Bill O’Reilly show on FOX News Tuesday night.
( tonight)


My Tax and Spending Reform Plan

Individuals will have the option of paying a 20% flat-rate income tax and I'll cap spending at 18% of GDP..


The Wall Street Journal

The folks in Washington might not like to hear it, but the plain truth is the U.S. government spends too much. Taxes are too high, too complex, and too riddled with special interest loopholes. And our expensive entitlement system is unsustainable in the long run.

Without significant change quickly, our nation will go the way of some in Europe: mired in debt and unable to pay our bills. President Obama and many in Washington seem unable or unwilling to tackle these issues, either out of fear of alienating the left or because they want Americans to be dependent on big government.

On Tuesday I will announce my "Cut, Balance and Grow" plan to scrap the current tax code, lower and simplify tax rates, cut spending and balance the federal budget, reform entitlements, and grow jobs and economic opportunity.

The plan starts with giving Americans a choice between a new, flat tax rate of 20% or their current income tax rate. The new flat tax preserves mortgage interest, charitable and state and local tax exemptions for families earning less than $500,000 annually, and it increases the standard deduction to $12,500 for individuals and dependents.

This simple 20% flat tax will allow Americans to file their taxes on a postcard, saving up to $483 billion in compliance costs. By eliminating the dozens of carve-outs that make the current code so incomprehensible, we will renew incentives for entrepreneurial risk-taking and investment that creates jobs, inspires Americans to work hard and forms the foundation of a strong economy. My plan also abolishes the death tax once and for all, providing needed certainty to American family farms and small businesses.

My plan restores American competitiveness in the global marketplace and provides strong incentives for U.S.-based employers to build new factories and create thousands of jobs here at home.

First, we will lower the corporate tax rate to 20%—dropping it from the second highest in the developed world to a rate on par with our global competitors. Second, we will encourage the swift repatriation of some of the $1.4 trillion estimated to be parked overseas by temporarily lowering the rate to 5.25%. And third, we will transition to a "territorial tax system"—as seen in Hong Kong and France, for example—that only taxes in-country income.

The mind-boggling complexity of the current tax code helps large corporations with lawyers and accountants devise the best tax-avoidance strategies money can buy. That is why Cut, Balance and Grow also phases out corporate loopholes and special-interest tax breaks to provide a level playing field for employers of all sizes.

To help older Americans, we will eliminate the tax on Social Security benefits, boosting the incomes of 17 million current beneficiaries who see their benefits taxed if they continue to work and earn income in addition to Social Security earnings.

We will eliminate the tax on qualified dividends and long-term capital gains to free up the billions of dollars Americans are sitting on to avoid taxes on the gain.

All of these tax cuts will be meaningless if we do not control federal spending. Last year the government spent $1.3 trillion more than it collected, and total federal debt now approaches $15 trillion. By the end of 2011, the Office of Management and Budget expects the gross amount of federal debt to exceed the size of America's entire economy for the first time in over 65 years.

Under my plan, we will establish a clear goal of balancing the budget by 2020. It will be an extremely difficult task exacerbated by the current economic crisis and our need for significant tax cuts to spur growth. But that growth is what will get us to balance, if we are willing to make the hard decisions of cutting.

We should start moving toward fiscal responsibility by capping federal spending at 18% of our gross domestic product, banning earmarks and future bailouts, and passing a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. My plan freezes federal civilian hiring and salaries until the budget is balanced. And to fix the regulatory excess of the Obama administration and its predecessors, my plan puts an immediate moratorium on pending federal regulations and provides a full audit of all regulations passed since 2008 to determine their need, impact and effect on job creation.

ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank and Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley must be quickly repealed and, if necessary, replaced by market-oriented, common-sense measures.

America must also once and for all face up to entitlement reform. To preserve benefits for current and near-term Social Security beneficiaries, my plan permanently stops politicians from raiding the program's trust fund. Congressional IOUs are no substitute for workers' Social Security payments. We should use the federal Highway Trust Fund as a model for protecting the integrity of a pay-as-you-go system.

Cut, Balance and Grow also gives younger workers the option to own their Social Security contributions through personal retirement accounts that Washington politicians can never raid. Because young workers will own their contributions, they will be free to seek a market rate of return if they choose, and to leave their retirement savings to their dependents when they die.

Fixing America's tax, spending and entitlement cultures will not be easy. But the status quo of byzantine taxes, loose spending and the perpetual delay of entitlement reform is a recipe for disaster.

Cut, Balance and Grow strikes a major blow against the Washington-knows-best mindset. It takes money from spendthrift bureaucrats and returns it to families. It puts fewer job-killing regulations on employers and more restrictions on politicians. It gives more freedom to Americans to control their own destiny. And just as importantly, the Cut, Balance and Grow plan paves the way for the job creation, balanced budgets and fiscal responsibility we need to get America working again.

Obama and His Feds Will Temporarily Cut Off All TV and Radio Broadcasts on Nov. 9? (2:00PM EST)

Feds Will Temporarily Cut Off All TV and Radio Broadcasts on Nov. 9? (2:00PM EST)

The Blaze

If you have ever wondered about the government’s ability to control the civilian airwaves, you will have your answer on November 9th.

On that day, federal authorities are going to shut off all television and radio communications simultaneously at 2:00PM EST to complete the first ever test of the national Emergency Alert System (EAS).

This isn’t a wild conspiracy theory. The upcoming test is posted on the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau website.

Only the President has the authority to activate EAS at the national level, and he has delegated that authority to the Director of FEMA. The test will be conducted jointly by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through FEMA, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS).

In essence, the authority to seize control of all television and civilian communication has been asserted by the executive branch and handed to a government agency.

The EAS has been around since 1994. Its precursor, the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS), started back in 1963. Television and radio broadcasters, satellite radio and satellite television providers, cable television and wireline video providers are all involved in the system.

So this begs the question: is the first ever national EAS test really a big deal?

Probably not. At least, not yet.

But there are some troubling factors all coming together right now that could conceivably trigger a real usage of the EAS system in the not too distant future. A European financial collapse could bring down U.S. markets. What is now the “Occupy” movement could lead to widespread civil unrest. And there are ominous signs that radical groups such as Anonymous will attempt something major on November 5th- Guy Fawke’s day.

Now we know in the event of a major crisis, the American people will be told with one voice, at the same time, about an emergency.

All thats left to determine is who will have control of the EAS when that day comes, and what their message will be.



On November 9, the public will hear a message indicating that “This is a test.” The audio message will be the same for both radio and television. However, the image on the screen and the text/crawl at the top of television screen may not be the same for all viewers. When the EAS test is over, regular programming will resume.

As we continue working with all our partners to prepare for the test in the months ahead, FEMA and the FCC plan to conduct outreach to organizations representing people with hearing disabilities to prepare that community for the national EAS test. Outreach will include specific information tailored to the needs of those with hearing disabilities that will be readily available at online sites.

How long will the test last?

We anticipate that the test will last approximately 3 minutes. While most messages, such as tsunami or hurricane warnings, are limited to 2 minutes by the EAS system, the Presidential message capability does not have a time limit. So to evaluate if the system properly interprets the Presidential message code in this test, the message duration must be longer than two minutes in length.


Wild Thing's comment......

It is during the Rush Limbaugh radio show.

Please dear God don't let the voice be that of Obama. AUGH!

Remember the movie...“Seven Days in May.”

Rick Perry Along With Rick Scott Sign Strong America Now Pledge to Tackle Debt and Eliminate the Deficit ~ Fantastic!

Perry Signs Strong America Now Pledge to Tackle Debt and Eliminate the Deficit

Gov. Rick Perry signed the Strong America Now pledge which binds him to tackling wasteful spending in Washington by implementing the waste elimination process Lean Six Sigma.

Mark Levin has also signed the pledge as a “prominent citizen”

Governor Perry is also one of only five U.S. Governors who has signed the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act pledge, those five governors including:


Nikki Haley
Gary Herbert
Sean Parnell
Rick Perry
Rick Scott

"We have a serious responsibility to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars, and the bill we passed in Texas created a process for us to examine spending and find ways to be more efficient," said Gov. Perry. "Continuing the effort to eliminate waste will be a cornerstone of my administration. The federal government has an obligation to tighten its belt just as American families and employers have had to do for the last three years. We've done it in Texas, and I am proud to stand by Strong America Now to take this effort to the federal level to rein in the out-of-control spending in Washington, D.C."

Steve Forbes Makes It Official He Endorses Rick Perry For President

Steve Forbes Endorses Rick Perry

Steve Forbes, a two time Republican presidential candidate, endorsed Governor Rick Perry in an interview on Fox News late Sunday afternoon. On Tuesday, Rick Perry will unveil his economic plan which includes measures to drastically reform the tax code and lower the corporate tax rate. It will also, he says, provide generous exemptions for “adults and for children.”

Unlike Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 Plan, however, Perry’s plan will not include a sales tax. Forbes asserts that this small but significant difference, coupled with the governor’s “firm leadership,” are reasons why he is endorsing Perry’s candidacy.

Wild Thing's comment........

Good news - great endorsement for Rick Perry.

Given Perry's flat tax, in addition to Perry’s “Job Creation” plan, he’s obviously got a secure grasp on just what this country needs to begin our recovery from Obama.

RICK PERRY: “We are fed up with being overtaxed and overregulated. We are tired of being told how much salt we can put on our food, what windows we can buy for our house, what kinds of cars we can drive, what kinds of guns we can own, what kinds of prayers we are allowed to say and where we can say them, what political speech we are allowed to use to elect candidates, what kind of energy we can use, what kind of food we can grow, what doctor we can see, and countless other restrictions on our right to live as we see fit.”

Medical Help For Illegal Immigrants Could Haunt Mitt Romney

Medical Help For Illegal Immigrants Could Haunt Mitt Romney

Los Angeles Times

By Noam N. Levey, Washington Bureau

October 23, 2011

On the Republican campaign trail, he derides any such public aid. But the healthcare law he signed as Massachusetts governor allows it.

he Massachusetts healthcare law that then-Gov. Mitt Romney signed in 2006 includes a program known as the Health Safety Net, which allows undocumented immigrants to get needed medical care along with others who lack insurance.

Uninsured, poor immigrants can walk into a health clinic or hospital in the state and get publicly subsidized care at virtually no cost to them, regardless of their immigration status.

The program, widely supported in Massachusetts, drew little attention when Romney signed the trailblazing healthcare law. But now it could prove problematic for the Republican presidential hopeful, who has been attacking Texas Gov. Rick Perry for supporting educational aid for children of undocumented immigrants in Texas.

"We have to turn off the magnet of extraordinary government benefits," Romney said at the recent Fox News-Google debate in Florida.

The Massachusetts program, which cost more than $400 million last year, paid for 1.1 million hospital and clinic visits. It's unclear how many undocumented patients benefited because the state does not record that data.

The Romney campaign referred questions to Tim Murphy, who served as Romney's state health and human services secretary. Murphy said the governor never intended the Health Safety Net to serve undocumented immigrants.

"Our view when we signed the law was that all benefits would be for people in the commonwealth who were here legally," Murphy said, noting that the regulations implementing the program were written after Romney left office in 2007.

But Massachusetts officials involved in crafting the healthcare law said there was broad understanding when Romney signed it that at least some people who would benefit would be in the country illegally.

That's supported by language in the law. Although it explicitly bars undocumented immigrants from getting certain health benefits, it does not prohibit them from receiving aid through the Health Safety Net.

For example, the law mandates that only noncitizens "permanently residing in the United States under color of law" may receive government subsidies to buy health insurance.

The law also spells out that undocumented immigrants aren't eligible for the state's Medicaid insurance program for the poor, known as MassHealth.

But the Health Safety Net, in contrast, is off-limits only to people who "moved into the commonwealth for the sole purpose of securing health insurance" or who are eligible for another insurance plan.

"There is no question that lots of different kinds of people, including undocumented immigrants, obtain medically necessary services as result of this program," said John McDonough, a former consumer advocate who worked extensively on the healthcare effort in Massachusetts.

Wow! This Romney has got a lot of gall to go after anyone on illegal immigration.

You Can Thank Obama For This Mess! U.S. Rating Likely To Be Downgraded Again

U.S. rating likely to be downgraded again

The United States will likely suffer the loss of its triple-A credit rating from another major rating agency by the end of this year due to concerns over the deficit, Bank of America Merrill Lynch forecasts.

The trigger would be a likely failure by Congress to agree on a credible long-term plan to cut the U.S. deficit, the bank said in a research note published on Friday.

A second downgrade -- either from Moody's or Fitch -- would follow Standard & Poor's downgrade in August on concerns about the government's budget deficit and rising debt burden. A second loss of the country's top credit rating would be an additional blow to the sluggish U.S. economy, Merrill said.

"The credit rating agencies have strongly suggested that further rating cuts are likely if Congress does not come up with a credible long-run plan" to cut the deficit, Merrill's North American economist, Ethan Harris, wrote in the report.

"Hence, we expect at least one credit downgrade in late November or early December when the super committee crashes," he added

Of course Obama and the dems will not hear of making any cuts or major cuts to spending. So much money wated on the wrong things like Planned Parenthood and all the other liberal agenda BS.

When they downgrade us again look for Obama to find someone or something else to blame then himself. He has worn out the blame Bush routine.

Karzai: Afghans Will Stand With Pakistan in War With the US


Afghanistan would support Pakistan in case of military conflict between Pakistan and the United States, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said in an interview to a private Pakistani TV channel broadcast on Saturday.

The remarks were in sharp contrast to recent tension between the two neighbors over cross-border raids, and Afghan accusations that Pakistan was involved in killing the chief Afghan peace envoy, former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani, by a suicide bomber on September 20.

“God forbid, If ever there is a war between Pakistan and America, Afghanistan will side with Pakistan,” he said in the interview to Geo television.

“If Pakistan is attacked and if the people of Pakistan needs Afghanistan’s help, Afghanistan will be there with you.”

Egyptian Jailed For Insulting Islam On Facebook

Egyptian jailed for Facebook Islam insult


An Egyptian court sentenced a man to three years in jail with hard labour on Saturday for insulting Islam in postings on Facebook, the official MENA news agency reported.

The Cairo court found that Ayman Yusef Mansur “intentionally insulted the dignity of the Islamic religion and attacked it with insults and ridicule on Facebook,” the agency reported.

The court said his insults were “aimed at the Noble Koran, the true Islamic religion, the Prophet of Islam and his family and Muslims, in a scurrilous manner,” the agency reported.

It did not provide details on what he had written that was deemed to be offensive.

Mansur was arrested in August after police tracked him down through his internet address.

Egyptian law outlaws insults to religion. The law has been used in the past to try Shiite Muslims.

Saudi Arabian Crown Prince, 81 Years Old, Dies at New York Hospital

Saudi Arabian crown prince dies at New York hospital


Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud died in New York, officials said Saturday, raising succession questions in the key oil producer amid turmoil in the region.

No other details about his death were immediately available, but arrangements are under way to transport his body back to Saudi Arabia, officials said.

Crown Prince Sultan, thought to be in his 80s, was Saudi Arabia's minister of defense, and was one of the top figures in the Saudi kingdom. He's had various medical issues in recent years.

In 2009, he was in New York for surgery for an undisclosed illness and had also flown to Morocco for medical treatment over the years.

The country's royal court released a statement about the death Saturday.

"King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud mourns the death of his brother and his Crown Prince ... Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud," the statement said.

The statement also said he died "outside the kingdom following an illness," but did not release details on the ailment.

Reports in recent years have indicated that Crown Prince Sultan was battling cancer.

King Abdullah's half-brother was the desert kingdom's defense minister for decades, meeting regularly with visiting dignitaries.

He took a leading role in Saudi Arabia's involvement in the 1991 Gulf War against Iraq, heading a coalition of about half a million troops from more than 30 countries.

Of his many children, perhaps the best known internationally is Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdul-Aziz Al-Saud, Saudi Arabia's former ambassador to the United States.

Prince Bandar served as ambassador from 1983 to 2005 and was friends with the family of President George W. Bush.

Obama on Ending War in Iraq

As a candidate Barack Obama consistently called Iraq the wrong war, a failed mission. Obama opposed the surge. He refused to admit that the Bush Surge was a massive success of historical proportions.

Now that the mission is over Barack Obama announced today that he will withdraw troops from Iraq. He spoke for six minutes. The troops will be home for the holidays. Obama told America the war in Iraq was over.
But, he refused to say it was a victory for America.

Charles does not hold back that's for sure. Cain had a back week that's for sure. He can get back on track and more probably will.

And what the heck is going on with Ann Coulter, I don't get it. She wants Romney and was pushing for Christie. weird since she has writtien so many books on liberals.

Carney: Obama "Absolutely" Agrees With Biden About Rapes & Jobs Bill

"I think it would be hard to find anyone that doesn't agree," White House press secretary Carney said about Joe Biden's remark that rapes will increase if Congress does not pass Obama's latest stimulus bill.

Carney was asked about Vice President Joe Biden saying rapes and murders will rise if the president's jobs bill is not passed.

"I think everyone will agree with the equation that fewer police officers on the street has a direct effect on the crime rate. We saw this in the 1990's. I do know that any lawmaker up on Capitol Hill will contest that simple fact or any American who makes that assessment in their local communities. Would you want fewer or more law enforcement officers on the job? Do you think that having more officers on the job would have a positive impact on crime? That is the point that the President absolutely shares," Carney said.

Steve Forbes: Perry’s flat tax ‘most exciting tax plan since Reagan’s’

Steve Forbes: Perry’s flat tax ‘most exciting tax plan since Reagan’s’

by Zachary Roth

October 20, 2011

Steve Forbes, whose flat tax plan helped make him an unlikely contender for the Republican presidential nomination 15 years ago, is praising a new version of the idea from Rick Perry. And Forbes, who says he helped devise Perry's plan, left little doubt that he'll formally back the Texas governor before long.

In an interview with Yahoo News, Forbes called Perry's proposal, announced in a speech Wednesday, "the most exciting tax plan since Reagan's," in 1980.

Asked whether that included his own 1996 plan, Forbes said it did, because unlike him in 1996, when he fell short of upsetting front-runner Bob Dole, Perry "is going to win."

Forbes, the chief executive of his family's eponymous publishing empire, said the Perry camp reached out to him for help in crafting their plan. "We got into discussions of basic principles--how the thing might be shaped," he said. "The candidate concluded it ought be a simple rate. Make it as simple and bold as possible."


Forbes hasn't officially said that he's backing any candidate, but he left little doubt that he'll formally get behind Perry soon. He said he would announce his support for one candidate soon, "and I don't think it'll surprise anyone.".

Wild Thing's comment.........

A true flat tax is the best workable option for the entire country.

In 1981 Reagan began his quest to reduce the number of personal tax rates from roughly 64 spread over four categories of the federal income tax code, down to two, 28% and 15% by 1988. A great acommplishment.

What Perry wants to do is even better.

And also I really like Perry's wonderful Energy Plan which would create several hundred thousand jobs in the 100 days. This would get the ball rolling. Perry knows energy very well. He has only been in a campaign for 2 months and the others have been running for months, and Romney for 5 years. Those so called debates run by liberal moderators were certainly not debates. However, you only want to smear and trash as you have from the moment he entered the race.

Rick Perry is a real leader with real solutions.

I love this quote!

...."When Romney kept insisting Perry let him talk and sounded whiney in doing it, the Texan finally looked at him and said, “Have at it.” So he uses a marvelous Southwest colloquialism to give Romney permission to proceed. That one may go down with Reagan’s “There you go again” to Carter. Never mind politics, American public life has not seen this kind of camera presence since maybe John Wayne. Men like him and women admire him. And he seems to be getting used to the debate format. On or off stage, he’s got a commanding and theatrical presence." ~ Obi-Wan Kanobi Jim Geraghty

Senate Votes Down Obama's Hand Out To Government Employee UNION Bill

Senate Votes Down Trimmed Version of Obama's Jobs Bill

Despite a campaign-style push this week by President Barack Obama, the Senate on Thursday scuttled pared-back jobs legislation aimed at helping state and local governments avoid layoffs of teachers and firefighters.

Obama’s three-day bus tour through North Carolina and Virginia — states crucial to his re-election race next year — didn’t change any minds among Senate Republicans, who filibustered Obama’s latest jobs measure to death just as they killed his broader $447 billion jobs plan last week.

The vote came in relation to a motion to simply take up the bill. Some Democrats who voted with the president, like Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana, however, said they couldn’t support the underlying Obama plan unless it’s changed.

Thursday’s $35 billion measure combined $30 billion for state and local governments to hire teachers and other school workers with $5 billion to help pay the salaries of police officers, firefighters and other first responders. The White House says the measure would “support” almost 400,000 education jobs for one year. Republicans call that a temporary “sugar high” for the economy.

A government employee growth bill they mean.The title should read.....Bailout of public unions (who give 99% of their political donations to democrats) FAILS!

Perry's Plan To Be A Flat Tax Proposal and Steve Forbes on Rick Perry’s Flat Tax Plan: ‘I’m elated!’

Steve Forbes on Rick Perry’s Flat Tax Plan: ‘I’m elated!’

As you might have heard, Texas Governor Rick Perry is planning to come out with a flat tax proposal next week. The plan hasn’t even been finalized, but it already has at least one big backer.

“I’m elated by it,” Steve Forbes told me. “And I think Governor Perry will surge ahead of Herman Cain,” he said.

“Herman Cain gets credit of realizing the [current tax] code has to go [but] the virtue of what Governor Perry is doing is that he does not bring in a sales tax,” he said.

In 1996, Forbes popularized the issue in the United States, running for president with a flat income tax as his signature issue.

Forbes stressed that Perry’s plan isn’t complete — that he’s still “tweaking” it. But Forbes indicated Perry’s plan would be similar to the one Forbes proposed in 1996 — which called for no income taxes on families until they hit $36,000 of yearly income. (After earning that amount, they would then pay a flat 17 percent tax on additional income.)

“I think the same principle will be at work with Governor Perry. The rate they are still tweaking, but the concept will be the same,” he said.

Forbes says the exemptions for people making below $36,000 (or whatever the new number is) are important, “so you don’t hit people with low incomes.”

Regarding the flat tax concept, Forbes said it’s an idea whose time has come. “The idea — even though it has been a while coming in the U.S. — has been gaining traction around the world, ranging in size from Albania to Russia,” Forbes said. “So we’re catching up with the rest of the world.”

Forbes also mocked Mitt Romney’s 59-point plan, saying: “I heard one person say, hey, Moses had only 10.”

“In six days, I’m going to release the details of an economic growth package that will create jobs, create growth, create investor confidence in America again,” Perry said at the Western Republican Leadership Conference Wednesday morning. “Scrapping the three million words of the current tax code, starting over with something simpler — a flat tax. I want to make the tax code so simple that even [Treasury Secretary] Timothy Geithner can file his taxes on time.”

“I am not the candidate of the establishment. You won’t hear a lot of shifting nuance from me,” Perry said. “I’m going to give the American people a huge big old helping of unbridled truth that we can’t continue to spend what we’re spending, that we can’t avoid entitlement reform because we’re afraid of the third rail of politics.”

Perry’s appearance at the debate and speech Wednesday morning marked his first appearance in Nevada this campaign cycle, and he presented a more energetic persona than in previous weeks.

“Let’s get Washington out of the way in order to save and preserve the American way. Let’s do it. Let’s roll,” Perry said as he closed his speech while shaking his hands in the air.


Wild Thing's comment........

There is such a great feeling to what has been happening especially in the last few days. Things are coming together and I like the way Perry does it step by step making sure each Plan has been well thought out.

Co-Author of 9-9-9 Plan Says Cain Should Dump National Sales Tax

Co-Author of 9-9-9 Plan Says Cain Should Dump National Sales Tax


One of the key economists who helped Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain draft his 9-9-9 tax plan is backing away from its most controversial component. Economist Stephen Moore said the criticism Cain endured during the GOP presidential debate Tuesday night shows his proposed 9 percent national sales tax might have to go, reports Fox News.

Cain weathered a storm of complaints over his tax plan at the debate in Las Vegas. Virtually every candidate took turns accusing him of pushing a scheme that would introduce new streams of revenue and hit the middle class hardest.

Moore said the debate further confirms his belief that the candidate should strip the sales tax out of his plan and replace it with a 9 percent payroll tax.

"They wouldn't be able to attack it," Moore told "If he had done that a week ago, then they wouldn't be able to attack the plan last night."

Moore said he likes the sales tax idea and thinks it would be "rocket fuel for the economy," but explained that it's just too much of a punching bag.

Moore first raised the idea of changing the Cain plan during an interview over the weekend on economist Larry Kudlow's radio show.

Wild Thing's comment......

Cain is not a bad man, and he can work on his plan if he feels it is necessary. Like I mentioned before I am not a Cain supporter but I am not anti-Cain. I just think Perry is a better candidate on every level.

Being President, holding the highest office in the land and it used to be the most powerful office in the world, That matters to me and it takes a special person to handle it, to listen to we the people, to have substance and experience as a leader.

Cain and Romney Caught In Campaign Cash Scandal

Cain and Romney caught in campaign cash scandal

What would be a race to the role as the Republican nominee for president without a little money scandal?

Thankfully Herman Cain and Mitt Romney have taken care of that as things heat up within the GOP.

Reports began to circulate on Tuesday that presidential hopeful and former pizzaman Herman Cain has spent tens of thousands of dollars on campaign contribution cash towards purchasing copies of his own books. In all, his campaign transferred over $100,000 in cash to his Herman Cain T.H.E. New Voice company, a firm that publishes and promotes literature penned by the former chair of the Kansas City Fed and Godfather Pizza CEO.

David Donnelly of the national campaigns director of the Public Campaign Action Fund has tweeted that the relationship between Cain’s presidential run and business endeavors could open up a can of worms that could crush his campaign. By purchasing copies of his own commercially available books, Cain could climb up best-selling lists and not only personally profit but more or less buy himself extra media attention.

Though initially cast off largely as a joke candidate, Cain has polled favorably along with the other Republican candidates during the last few weeks.

In addition to Cain’s campaign cash scandal, the run of Mitt Romney is raising eyebrows as well as reports circulate over the politician’s ties with a financial consulting firm.

In only three months this year, Romney paid over $2.15 million in fees to the firm of SJZ LLC, who in turn manages the fundraising efforts of his current presidential campaign. Suspicion has arisen given that SJZ LLC founder Spencer Zwick served as finance director of Romney’s 2008 campaign and is currently business partners in Solamere, an equity endeavor run in part with the would-be president’s son. Additionally, John Miller, co-chairman of Romney's National Finance, is also an operating partner at Solamere. It doesn’t end there, however; JRM-C Management, also operated by Miller, has been conducting business transactions with the Romney campaign as recently as late April when the presidential candidate paid the company over $12,000 for air travel accommodations.

Both Cain and Romney have made it a major point of their campaigns that in a time of dire economic conditions in the United States, America needs a businessman to revitalize the country and get it back on its toes. It shouldn’t come as a surprise then that these have funneled money from their campaign into their checkbooks. Maybe these two do know how to make a buck or two?


Wild Thing's comment.....

I don't like hearing this about any Republican. But as far as Romney goes he is much more of a Democrat. It hurts the Republican party.

But it is in the news and needs to be shared so they will clean up their act if it is all true.

Rick Perry Has Made Texas One of the Most Industry-friendly States in the Nation

Rick Perry has made Texas one of the most industry-friendly states in the nation

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Gov. Rick Perry likes to say the best way to promote economic growth is to reduce regulation. When it comes to the environment, Perry has made Texas one of the most industry-friendly states in the nation.

Perry has cut funding for clean air programs and sued the Environmental Protection Agency to avoid enforcing laws to make the air cleaner. As part of his Republican presidential campaign, he routinely blasts the White House for tightening environmental standards.

“As president, I would roll back the radical agenda of President Obama’s job-killing Environmental Protection Agency,” Perry wrote recently in an op-ed for the New Hampshire Union-Leader. “Our nation does not need costly new federal restrictions, especially during our present economic crisis.”

Those positions get big applause at Republican debates and fundraisers, and also provide insight into how he would govern if elected, particularly when it comes to the EPA.

In Texas, Perry signed a state budget that slashes funding for the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality from $833.3 million to $565.5 million over the next two years. In his budget proposal, Perry had provided even less: $552.5 million. Texas boasts the second largest environmental agency in the world, behind only the EPA; the state agency had requested $882.6 million just to maintain current programs.

The cuts were part of the governor’s plan to slash $15 billion in state spending to cope with revenue shortfalls in the sagging economy. Environmentalists complained that the cuts will hurt the most effective clean air programs in the state, including ones that were helping to reduce auto emissions.

Perry used the EPA as his punching bag during his 2010 gubernatorial campaign, and he is using the federal agency as a foil again in the presidential race

Executives in the state’s oil and gas industry, the nation’s largest, say they have enjoyed a cooperative relationship with the Texas’ environmental agency, despite tougher federal rules.

“Texas always has been, and has continued to be under Governor Perry, one of the states where it’s a more friendly regulatory environment,” said David Blackmon, director of government relations for Houston-based El Paso Corp. The national natural gas company operates the nation’s largest interstate pipeline system, which runs through 29 states.

Federal regulations have increased under Perry’s tenure, but Texas has implemented fewer new rules than most other states. Blackmon said the real difference between states is the administrative costs of obtaining permits.

He said the Texas agency has “reached out to business and found solutions that not only cleaned up the air, but did it in a way that has a minimal impact on our ability to do business.”

~ snipet ~

Another new measure made tightening air quality permits on the oil and gas industry more difficult. That law, which Perry signed in June, requires the Texas environmental agency to analyze the effect of new regulation on the economy — including how it might hurt a company — before implementation. The economic impact could override the environmental benefit of the new regulation.

The new law reflects Perry’s contention that global warming is a questionable theory and that regulation always creates an adverse business climate.

During an August campaign swing through New Hampshire, Perry said of climate change, “I don’t think, from my perspective, that I want to be engaged in spending that much money on still a scientific theory that has not been proven, and from my perspective, is more and more being put into question.”


Perry spars with Romney at CNN Debate over illegal immigration ~ I LOVED this, Perry stayed strong and Romney got all red faced.

...That's -- I'm running for office, for Pete's sake, I can't have illegals. -- Mitt Romney, GOP presidential debate - October 18, 2011 - Las Vegas, NV

Note : Romney didn’t object to having undocumented workers working for him because it’s illegal; he objected because he thought it would hurt his political career.


Wild Thing's comment........

Regarding the debate clip I posted I was truly impressed with Perry in the debate. He needed to come on strong and he did. Not like a bully but with strength and used the truth to go at his opponents.

Interesting to note Romney this morning came out with a vile video of Perry that was filled with lies about Perry. It was really bad and went virial on the internet pretty fast. I guess Romney's campaign got some serious feedback about it being way below the belt so they took it down. But then hours later Romney came out with yet another one filled with lies . Plus the Mitt Romney camp, launched an anti-Rick Perry website, LOL now isn't that a tactic that Obama used, he sure did. I put the link because you might want to see the horrible video Romney has there.

Debate Score: Perry For the Win

Debate Score: Perry For the Win

by Bryan Preston

There were two Ricks on debate stage tonight, and both came in loaded up and ready to hunt. Rick Santorum threw a blizzard of punches at Mitt Romney early over his claim that as president, Romney, the author of RomneyCare, would repeal ObamaCare. The punches landed and the damage showed on Romney’s face. Rick Perry came in loaded up to speak aggressively for his energy plan, and spoke with an energy and conviction that has not come through in previous debates. Romney came under the most intense fire he has faced in any of the 2011 debates and while he handled it well, the criticisms of his record are legitimate and will sting. Romney’s red face as he tried to to redirect the examination over to Newt Gingrich revealed that he knew the night wasn’t going well for him.

Herman Cain also faced the toughest questioning of any debate so far, regarding his 9-9-9 tax plan, and handled it mostly with his usual humor and wit. The former talk radio host can engage in an open debate with the best of them, but his lack of depth showed in spots. He didn’t seem to know the details of his 9-9-9 plan early on. Cain did do well when discussing his ideas for reforming health care: No mandates, but focus on market-based reforms like allowing purchase across state lines. Nothing new, but nothing wrong with any of it either.

Perry also hit Romney directly for “hypocrisy” for having hired illegal aliens. Romney laughed and denied, but the story has been out there since 2007 or thereabouts. Romney lost his cool, for the second time. Perry scored another direct hit, and Mitt turned red again. The ice man melted.

Perry also did well on the question of securing the border: It’s about a fence, plus other security measures including technology and boots on the ground. Bachmann got in a jab about the president’s illegal alien relatives who keep popping up in the news, before moving on to declare that she would build a fence along the entire border. There is actually less policy daylight between most of the candidates on the border than the stage arguments suggest, but the arguments drew out some personalities, and it’s hard to see Romney benefiting from the exchange.

Tonight’s was the most lively debate, and does have the potential to change the race a bit. Perry came to fight and from tax policy to spending to funding the UN, showed that his issue knowledge is broad. Romney wasn’t prepared to take hits from so many other candidates. Romney’s packed supporters in the audience and other blogs provided some soundtrack to back their man up but I doubt it did much good. Romney’s cool broke too many times for his own good. His whining about being talked over, when he isn’t shy about interrupting others, was entertaining but revealed a thin skin. Romney probably had his best moment during the religion debate, but that’s such tired ground now and Romney has so overreached on that issue that it’s unlikely to make any difference.

This was Perry’s best night. He took control when he needed to, threw the president’s and his competitors’ words against them at opportune moments, and showed a strong and knowledgeable presence going toe to toe with Romney. Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann also had good nights. Gingrich can speak brilliantly on any policy thrown at him. His brief closing statement showed that he is among the adults in the room. Santorum spoke very well on values. Cain and Romney took sustained fire and handled it unevenly. Cain was at his worst on the question of whether he would contemplate releasing terrorists held at Gitmo in exchange for an American hostage. There is simply no way to justify his answer to Wolf Blitzer, earlier today. Ron Paul was, infuriatingly, Ron Paul, capable of saying things at the edge of brilliance but coupling them with statements that make little sense or betray a hole in his moral thinking. While I admire his logical mind, I don’t admire some of the places it takes him.

The clear winner tonight was Rick Perry. He looked like a seasoned leader who has found his voice, at last. Newt Gingrich came in a strong second, Cain and Santorum follow him and Romney follows them. He was strong in spots but had trouble keeping his cool, an d had no good answers to explain his own policy history. Passion is one thing; all of the candidates brought that tonight. Edging close to revealing a Hulk moment is something else.

There was something else different about tonight’s debate. In past debates, Romney’s press team has easily outpaced all of the other campaigns combined in the number of press releases they sent out while the debate continued. Not so, tonight. The Perry press team must have rolled over the Romney team 8 to 1 or more. From the top on down, the Perry team is moving with a new energy.


Wild Thing's comment........

This was Perry's best debate performance thus far. Coming in second I would have to say it was Newt. I have to give him credit for when he is good.

Romney got so ticked his face got red and he almost stammered.

Joe Biden: Wish Those Who Oppose Stimulus Knew What It Was Like To Be Robbed Or Raped

Joe Biden wishes opponents of President Barack Obama’s latest stimulus knew what it felt like to be robbed or raped, indicating that if they did, they would not oppose government spending on public jobs such as police officers.

“I wish these guys who thought it was temporary, I wish they had some notion of what it was like to be on the other side of a gun, or [to have] a 200-pound man standing over you, telling you to submit,” Biden told a crowd at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia on Tuesday, adding, “Folks, it matter, it matters.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

Biden has lost it, he has lost that part of a person that lives in their very soul. Politics has moved into his DNA so that he can't even seperate the two things of human beings and pushing an agenda and a socialized big government agenda at that. One that will destroy our country even more.

Once Again Herman Cain Backtracks On A Comment He Made ~ This Is Concerning If He Were To Be President!

Herman Cain says he may not have understood the question earlier in the afternoon when he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer prior to the debate that he would be willing to trade hundreds of Guantanamo Bay prisoners for a single U.S. soldier. Anderson Cooper asks him about it right after the candidates left the debate stage. "If I said that, I spoke in error."


Wild Thing's comment.......

I think this makes it 3 times or 4 that Cain has had to do this. The other times he said he was joking and one other time he said he did not have enough information or something. Shooting from the hip is ok, but Cain is having this backtrack a lot lately.

Posted by Wild Thing at 12:48 AM

If You Love America and Have Conservative Values THIS Is Your Man....Rick Perry!

Let's look at the borer issue:

Perry has had to deal with an international border that was suppose to be secured by the Federal Government on behalf of all the United States.

Perry has a tougher stance on border and immigration law enforcement than any of the other candidates and that is a fact.

Perry has exactly the right idea and the experience to stop illegal immigration. He can’t do it as Governor of Texas but he can do it as President.

He has actually put Texas Taxpayer money (400 million) on that border, Texas Ranger Recon Teams, have you ever seen or heard of the Texas Rangers Recon?They are about as BAD ASS as you can get. Then Perry has also put the Texas Guard and TXDot Officers along with equipment.

He has done it. He has experience with it.

He has fought Obama in Wash DC on one side and the drug cartels on the other side.

He has fought with Obama for 3 years to get Federal help. but Obama keeps sending troops to other countries to protect their borders. And then he runs guns down across the Texas/Arizona/New Mexico borders to the drug cartels.

And the Perry haters need to remember it is the Federal Governments job to secure it’s international border with another country not Texas.

Perry is also aware of the farmers and ranchers along the border and so those yakking about the fence the 1200 mile fence over a river, cliffs, mountains, huge lakes and American’s private property need to wise up and pay attention to all the things Perry HAS done about this issue.

Just because there are candidates out there that can speak like a car salesman (Romney), speak like they will spend billions and billions of dollars over 10-15 years to build a fence over Americans private property - lakes - 1200 mile river - cliffs - mountains - National Park - resorts (sounds nice Bachmann - except it will waste taxpayer money, won’t work & takes too long), speak like they want to not only build an Electrified Great Wall of China that would kill people and call it a joke does not mean they know what they are doing.

Mexico is the United States’ second-largest export market and third-largest trading partner.

Top U.S. exports to Mexico include electronic equipment, motor vehicle parts, and chemicals.

And there are more than a MILLION AMERICANS living in Mexico. (legally of course)

On a DAILY BASIS, there are one million people and one billion dollars worth of commerce crossing the US-Mexico border. Again on a daily basis.

And just one more thing, Mexicans come legally into the United States everyday to shop, vacation and spend their money.

Many people in the US do not realize that 50% of Mexicans are not poor but are in fact wealthy and they like to spend their money in the United States.

An American President pissing off Mexico is not a good thing for America or our economy.

If an American President can tick off Mexico, what other countries are they going to possibly cause friction with?

Foreign Policy: You need someone who does not shoot off their mouth, is inexperienced, non Presidential and that does not know what they are doing. (We have that now)

We don't want to start straining relationships or worse wars with our allies.

Take a look at Cain for example. We hear some of the media and the Cain supporterss say Perry is not prepared for the debates. I disagree, Perry is simply not good with debates. I wish he was but I am discussing about being prepared and the one who is NOT prepared is Cain. Cain has shown he is lacking in the foreign policy area already during some of his interviews.

Mexico is a foreign country as is Israel. Cain wants a high wall the entire distance ( which will not happen) and look at his answer about Israel.

Example - Transcripts below: From Chris Wallace interview of Cain

WALLACE: Where do you stand on the right of return?

CAIN: The right of return? [pause] The right of return?

WALLACE: The Palestinian right of return.

CAIN: That’s something that should be negotiated. That’s something that should be negotiated.

“I don’t think they have a big problem with people returning,”

And there is also this by Gilchrist:

Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist endorses Rick Perry for Texas governor

“I had to come 1,200 miles to find a governor who believes in a simple principle called the rule of law,” Gilchrist said at the Crescent Hotel. “I’m here to encourage all you Texans to stand your ground and get out there and vote for this governor.”

Gilchrist later added that “Perry has a clear record of decisive action to secure our borders, stop illegal drug and human trafficking trade and is very clearly the right choice for voters in Texas to fight illegal immigration.”

In accepting the endorsement, Perry blasted the federal government’s effort to secure that nation’s borders.

“Washington’s record on border security has been one of indifference, of neglect and failure,” Perry said. “That’s why Texas has been stepping up with resources to fill the gap left by Washington.”

Perry said the state, over the last two legislative sessions, has pumped in over $225 million for border security.
“We’re not going to rest in Texas until that border is completely secure,” Perry said.


The Trans-Texas Corridor never happened - Perry put a stop to it.

GREAT article below from......

Most Conservative State Representative in Texas Endorses Rick Perry for President - Explains Trans-Texas Corridor

The following week several of us met with Governor Perry and the TXDOT Commissioner and Executive Director to share the frustration and opposition of our constituents across the state to the TTC.

After a lengthy meeting, Governor Perry did something that has made me respect him as I have no other leader which I have observed or served alongside.

He sat back in his chair, gave our arguments thought and said, “Tell your constituents you talked to the Governor, and the Trans-Texas Corridor is no more.”

To this day, the handful of legislators in attendance at that meeting have respected Rick Perry—a man who was confident, honest, and exhibited absolute integrity to his citizens.

He often does not receive the proper recognition and credit he deserves for his decisive response to the will of Texas citizens against the TTC.

When presented with their objections and opposition, he brought a halt to the ill-conceived TTC. This is in stark contrast to our current President who sees the destructive results of his policies and has no intention of admitting fault or changing course, but instead blames everyone else for his errors in judgment.

From his action to end the TTC to his signature on legislation to protect the rights of coastal property owners struggling to recover and rebuild in the aftermath of a hurricane, Rick Perry has responded to Texan landowners’ concerns about private property rights.



October 1, 2008 Gov. Rick Perry releasesd this statement

“In a free market economy, government should not be in the business of using taxpayer dollars to bail out corporate America. Congress needs to take off its partisan gloves and work together to bring both short and long term stability to the credit markets. They need to stop blaming each other and start thinking about solutions that put the taxpayers of this country first.”

So to those of you that like Herman Cain's 999 plan.

As Center for American Progress Vice President for Economic Policy Michael Ettlinger put it, the plan “would be the biggest tax shift from the wealthy to the middle-class in the history of taxation, ever, anywhere, and it would bankrupt the country.”

ANALYSIS: Cain’s ’999′ Plan Would Cause Largest Deficits Since WWII, While Increasing Taxes For Most Americans

And the Cain people keep pushing the lie that Paul Ryan supports Cain's 99 plan even after THIS has been posted at my blog and on Facebook by many of us.

Kevin Seifert, a spokesman for Ryan, clarified late Thursday that the budget committee chairman has not endorsed Cain or the specifics of his “9-9-9″ plan, but rather that he “loved” that it was becoming “a starting point for a larger conversation on tax reform.”

Perry's Plan Phase 1

This is a great plan. Lots of substance...showing how fast Perry intends to put Americans back to work. What is nice is Perry’s 11 years experience as Governor...he has what is needed for this country NOW. President is not an entry level job. You don’t walk in the Oval Office wondering how this all works.

Governor Perry's Energy Paper Hits All The Right Notes

Rick Perry released his aptly named Energizing American Jobs and Security plan, a blueprint outlining his energy and environmental policies. Leaving no rock unturned, Perry lays out a strong plan aimed at spurring domestic investment and job creation, reining in the out-of-control Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); and reducing our nation’s deficit.

Keeping in line with much of the legislation coming out of the Republican controlled House of Representatives, Perry first looks to undo the damage caused by the Obama Administration over the past three years. Refusing to issue drilling permits at a reasonable rate, the Department of the Interior has put forth an impossible number of hoops for oil and natural gas producers to jump through. Across town, Lisa Jackson’s EPA has scared America’s job creators into inaction. With a slew of punitive, unnecessary regulations coming down the pipe, America’s manufacturers and energy producers are hording capital until they fully comprehend EPA’s compliance costs. Perry’s blueprint would reprimand these agencies, expediting permit processing and giving American businesses the certainty investment requires.

Consistent with Perry’s record as governor, he believes that state-run EPAs are best equipped to determine and enforce environmental regulations. Bogged down in the fight against the federal EPA, devolution of environmental regulation to state agencies is something conservatives should talk about more.

Also encouraging is Perry’s plan to simplify our distortive tax code through repealing tax credits and subsidies. Cleaning up the code of course, would be done in a revenue neutral way as he promised Americans he would not raise their taxes when he signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. ATR has long championed this strategy for tax reform, which was modeled after Reagan’s successful 1986 plan. Repealing credits and plowing the savings into lower rates would not only simplify the tax code, but make it more fair—a step towards a truly innovative free energy market.

I believe Oct 25 is the date Gov. Perry has scheduled to unveil his economic growth package. As mentioned above it "will tackle tax reform, entitlement reform and real spending reductions."


Cains idiot challenge Perry for evangelical votes

I will not judge anyone that says they are a Christian and for Cain to mouth off like he did shows me how truly shallow he is. He knows Perry had a prayer weekend for Texas asking for rain, he is aware Perry IS a Christian.

Perry is 100% Pro-Life and has always been pro life.
He recently got a bill passed in Texas that requires women to get a sonogram and if willing a discussion from doctor before she can get an abortion.

He believes marriage is God ordained and between a man and a woman.

Rick Perry is all these things:

Pro-10th Amendment

Pro=2nd Amendment



Pro-Domestic Drilling


Pro-Lower Federal Regulation

Pro-Patriot who Loves America

Pro-Balance Budget Amendment

Pro-Lowering Taxes

Pro-Smaller Government

Pro-Securing the Border

Against-Amnesty for Illegals

Rick Perry's Book ......" Fed Up"...............

"FED UP!" by Gov. Rick Perry - Forward by NEWT GINGRICH: Rick Perry's book "almost came too late"

"I wish this book had never needed to be written. It almost came too late. America is recklessly accelerating toward economic disaster. Fed Up! may be the last warning sign to the danger that lies ahead. Rick Perry, Texas governor for the past decade, is uniquely qualified to offer a firsthand perspective on why the United States—the most successful civilization in human history—is being threatened with economic collapse.
First Principles
Faith, freedom, and free enterprise are the pillars of a strong, safe, prosperous society. Rick knows that when these principles are protected, America succeeds, and when they are undermined, America fails. But the Left has a different belief. The Left believes that most people are not capable of pursuing happiness and that a strong centralized government is best able to provide for them. While claiming compassion for humanity, the Left's policies are destructive to the human beings subject to them—as we have had to learn painfully again and again.

The Left's self-serving solution to every crisis, economic or otherwise, and many of their own doing, is always the same: inflict higher taxes on Americans to create more government programs with more rules and regulations that result in less freedom, less innovation, less safety, and less prosperity.

The problem with the Left’s one solution, as Rick forcefully explains in the pages that follow, is that it doesn't work. It's never worked, and it never will work. The record shows it.

But what the record also shows is that when power and freedom are returned to the people, when people are rewarded for work, and when government holds the line on spending, individuals and opportunity thrive. We have seen that result most spectacularly recently in Texas, and in the mid-1990s


Wild Thing's ( aka Chrissie) comment..........

I did not list all the issues but enough of the ones that are mostly discussed.

I love Perry's Paln 1 and am looking forward to the others. It is a great plan. Lots of substance...showing how fast Perry intends to put Americans back to work. What is nice is Perry’s 11 years experience as Governor...he has what is needed for this country NOW. President is not an entry level job. You don’t walk in the Oval Office wondering how this all works.

Rick Perry has the conservative goods, and the record to prove them. Rick Perry has the qualities that make a good president, he is a conservative, and on the issues which anyone can check out online he is pretty much down the line what the Republican party base has wanted and looked for.

When the GOP listens to the conservative base elections are won, when they push a non conservative on the base too many stay home and do not vote.

It is a fact, Perry has not done well in debates. But when he gives a speech rooms are silent, people learn forward with intensity listening and not only liking what Perry says but loving it. He rouses passion once again in his speeches for the America we love and have missed since back in the Reagan years. Listen to some of his speeches they stand out compared to all the other candidates. None of the others can reach out and make a person feel like that. Someone said once how they miss having a President that when he speaks one is left with great quotes from the speech. We had that with Ronald Reagan and we would have that with Rick Perry.

Listen to some of his speeches they stand out compared to all the other candidates. None of the others can reach out and make a person feel like that. Someone said once how they miss having a President that when he speaks one is left with great quotes from the speech. We had that with Ronald Reagan and we would have that with Rick Perry. I am not talking about othe jingle ad type of speaking that Herman Cain does or the rhetoric of no passion and fake feeling from Romney, but real substance. The kind that Perry brings from deep within his heart.

That Perry was in the military is another plus. He loves our troops and Veterans and both have responded to him in a positive way.

Rick Perry is a bottom line man. He cuts through the garbage and goes where we need to go....pass all the silly garbage and hit the bottom line of the situtation along with the solution to that particular problem.

Perry on Obamacare......“No issue is more critical for the defense of freedom and the American way of life than the preservation of our free-market health care system and the total repeal and dismantling of so-called Obamacare.” ~ Rick Perry

I will finish this post with a quote by Rick Perry. One can feel Reagan as you read it. Perry is NOT Reagan and no one will be. But Reagan IMO is a standard of excellence, not perfect but one that has been the best President in my lifetime. If anyone could come close to that love of our country, that wanting everyone to have the American dream and not just in lofty words but in a President that wanted it for all of us it is like Reagan was...... Gov. Rick Perry.

"What I learned growing up on the farm was a way of life that was centered on hard work, and on faith and on thrift," Perry said. "You see, as Americans we’re not defined by class, and we will never be told our place. What makes our nation exceptional is that anyone, from any background, can climb the highest of heights. As Americans, we don’t see the role of government as guaranteeing outcomes, but allowing free men and women to flourish based on their own vision, their hard work and their personal responsibility. And as Americans, we realize there is no taxpayer money that wasn’t first earned by the sweat and toil of one of our citizens." ~ Rick Perry ( quote taken from his announcement to run for President)

Study: Cain Tax Plan Raises Taxes on 84 Percent

Study: Cain Tax Plan Raises Taxes on 84 Percent

FOX News

Herman Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan would raise taxes on 84 percent of U.S. households, according to an independent analysis released Tuesday, contradicting claims by the Republican presidential candidate that most Americans would see a tax cut.

The Tax Policy Center, a Washington think tank, says low- and middle-income families would be hit hardest, with households making between $10,000 and $20,000 seeing their taxes increase by nearly 950 percent.

"You're talking a $2,700 tax increase for people with incomes between $10,000 and $20,000," said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. "That's huge."

Households with the highest incomes, however, would get big tax cuts. Those making more than $1 million a year would see their taxes cut nearly in half, on average, according to the analysis.

Among those in the middle, households making between $40,000 and $50,000 would see their taxes increase by an average of $4,400, the report said. Those making between $50,000 and $75,000 would see their annual tax bill go up by an average of $4,326.

"It's very, very regressive compared to the current system, and that's largely because we're exempting capital gains, and we're taxing your spending with the sales tax," Williams said.

"People at the top end don't spend all their money and they get a lot of capital gains, so they are doing pretty well here."

Cain's campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In the past, Cain has acknowledged that taxes would increase for some but says taxes would decrease for most.

"Some people will pay more, but most people would pay less is my argument," Cain said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." "Who will pay more? The people who spend more money on new goods. The sales tax only applies to people who buy new goods, not used goods. That's a big difference that doesn't come out."

Cain's plan would scrap current taxes on income, payroll, capital gains and corporate profits. He would replace them with a 9 percent tax on income, a 9 percent business tax and a 9 percent national sales tax.

Cain's campaign has gained momentum largely in response to his tax plan, which is popular in part because of its simplicity. Several polls have the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza at or near the top of the Republican field, vying with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

President Barack Obama told ABC News that Cain's tax plan would impose a "huge burden" on middle-class and working families. The president said Cain's plan would make sure the wealthiest pay less -- and replace the revenue with a sales tax hitting the less well-off.

Romney criticized the plan in a conference call with reporters Tuesday.

"I believe that you're going to find with the 9-9-9 plan Herman Cain has put out that the burden shifts more to the middle class, and I think that's the wrong direction to go," Romney said. "A decision to completely jettison our current tax system for a new system always has some merit, but then you need to get into it, to figure out who's this going to help and who's this going to hurt."

Cain's rise in the polls has brought increased scrutiny, and his tax plan has taken hits from across the political spectrum. Some don't like shifting the tax burden from the wealthy to the poor and middle class; others don't like the new national sales tax.

"Adding a retail sales tax to the federal government's powerful tax armada would be a terrible idea from a small-government perspective," Chris Edwards of the libertarian Cato Institute wrote in an opinion piece for The Daily Caller website.

William McBride, an economist at the conservative Tax Foundation, said Cain's plan to move away from taxing savings and investment "would be a very good thing for growth in the long run."

But, McBride said, the national sales tax would be a nightmare to administer because so many state and local governments already have sales taxes, and the bases are different.

In most states, food and medicine are excluded from sales tax. Cain has said his sales tax would be applied to all new goods -- only used goods would be exempt.

"It's not as simple as having all these jurisdictions simply tack on 9 percent and send it to the federal government," McBride said in an interview.

Cain has said his plan would initially raise as much money as the current tax system but do it more efficiently, leading to economic growth, which would produce higher tax revenues. The Tax Policy Center analysis agreed that the plan would initially raise about the same amount of money as current tax policy, about $2.55 trillion in 2013.

The Tax Policy Center compared taxes on U.S. households under current tax policy, with those imposed under the Cain plan. In using current tax policy, the analysis assumes that tax cuts enacted under former President George W. Bush -- and extended through 2012 by Obama -- would be extended.

The center did a separate analysis that assumed all the Bush-era tax cuts would expire at the end of 2012. Under that scenario, Cain's plan would still impose higher taxes on 77 percent of U.S. households, the report said.

The Tax Policy Center is a research group formed by two Washington think tanks: the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution. Researchers at the center regularly testify before Congress on tax policy. The center's analyses during the 2008 presidential campaign were widely circulated.

The center said researchers tried to consult with Cain's advisers to make sure they were interpreting the plan correctly, but they had not heard back.


Wild Thing's comment......

During the debate Cain kept repeating " apples and oranges" instead of being clear on an answer to explain his plan. Several of the candidates kept asking Cain to make it more clear and he just kept saying apples and oranges. weird. My husband Nick said when this was all happening, Cain is confusing people and it's not good.

Rick Perry's Energy Plan Hits All The Right Notes

Channeling the House GOP, Perry proposes to overhaul DOI/EPA, simplifying the tax code, and unleashes America’s job creators.

Americans For Tax Reform

Last week, presidential candidate Rick Perry released his aptly named Energizing American Jobs and Security plan, a blueprint outlining his energy and environmental policies. Leaving no rock unturned, Perry lays out a strong plan aimed at spurring domestic investment and job creation, reining in the out-of-control Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); and reducing our nation’s deficit.

Keeping in line with much of the legislation coming out of the Republican controlled House of Representatives, Perry first looks to undo the damage caused by the Obama Administration over the past three years. Refusing to issue drilling permits at a reasonable rate, the Department of the Interior has put forth an impossible number of hoops for oil and natural gas producers to jump through. Across town, Lisa Jackson’s EPA has scared America’s job creators into inaction. With a slew of punitive, unnecessary regulations coming down the pipe, America’s manufacturers and energy producers are hording capital until they fully comprehend EPA’s compliance costs. Perry’s blueprint would reprimand these agencies, expediting permit processing and giving American businesses the certainty investment requires.

Consistent with Perry’s record as governor, he believes that state-run EPAs are best equipped to determine and enforce environmental regulations. Bogged down in the fight against the federal EPA, devolution of environmental regulation to state agencies is something conservatives should talk about more.

Also encouraging is Perry’s plan to simplify our distortive tax code through repealing tax credits and subsidies. Cleaning up the code of course, would be done in a revenue neutral way as he promised Americans he would not raise their taxes when he signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. ATR has long championed this strategy for tax reform, which was modeled after Reagan’s successful 1986 plan. Repealing credits and plowing the savings into lower rates would not only simplify the tax code, but make it more fair—a step towards a truly innovative free energy market.

Obama Is Demanding That Seniors Fund His American Jobs Act

The president is demanding that seniors fund his American Jobs Act

The Daily Caller

The first rule of horror movies is that the villain is nearly impossible to kill. It would appear the same is true in public policy, where the worst proposals are dismissed — only to rise again like zombies.

The latest example of this is the American Jobs Act proposed by President Obama. While the president tours the country promoting his latest jobs proposal, he is largely quiet on how the bill would breathe new life into a bad proposal, a proposal that would weaken one of the strongest programs in our nation’s entitlement system and leave American seniors to foot the bill.

It is no secret that America’s entitlement programs are broken. These crucial elements of the safety net for our seniors and low-income Americans are bleeding red ink and will not survive to the next generation. It is imperative that we undertake real reforms that secure the safety net for the future, stem the flow of red ink, and deliver on the promise of American greatness.

But in the midst of this entitlement tumult, there has been an island of promise. The Medicare prescription drug program has been our country’s most successful entitlement program because it forces drug plans to compete for seniors’ valuable dollars. Since its creation, the program has come in over 40 percent below its estimated cost and delivered a wide array of choices tailored to seniors’ circumstances. Now President Obama wants to destroy this success story to “pay” for his second attempt at economic stimulus, the American Jobs Act

Herman Cain's Position On TARP Not Good! Very Disappointing!

TARP, the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) is a program of the United States government to purchase assets and equity from financial institutions to strengthen its financial sector that was signed into law by U.S. President George W. Bush on October 3, 2008. It was a component of the government’s measures in 2008 to address the subprime mortgage crisis.

Herman Cain’s position on TARP:

On October 20, 2008, Herman Cain wrote, in an article in North Star Writers Group’s

Far from Nationalization, Purchase of Bank Stocks Is a Win-Win for Taxpayers

Earth to taxpayers! Owning stocks in banks is not nationalization of the banking industry. It’s trying to solve a problem.

The unprecedented financial crisis has caused the Treasury of the United States to take unprecedented measures to help solve the problem of frozen credit and cash flow for U.S. businesses.

Most of us had dreams of what we wanted to be when we grew up as children. Some of us wanted to grow up and become a fireman, a policeman, a doctor, a nurse, a lawyer, a teacher, an actor, an engineer, a writer, a dancer, a chef or any number of other professions.

But some of us wanted to own a bank because that’s where the money is!

Wake up people! Owning a part of the major banks in America is not a bad thing. We could make a profit while solving a problem.

But the mainstream media and the free market purists want you to believe that this is the end of capitalism as we know it. It is not for several reasons that they have conveniently not explained.

First, instead of buying toxic mortgage-related assets of banks as originally proposed, the Treasury has changed tactics and will buy equity positions called preferred stocks, which gives us as taxpayers an ownership stake in their success for a limited period of time.

Preferred stock means we get paid a dividend before any other stockholders get paid a dividend when they make a profit. You got a problem with that?

Second, the purchase agreement between the Treasury and the participating banks has an incentive for the banks to re-purchase the stock back from the Treasury within five years.

If the banks do not re-purchase the stock in five years then we get a bigger dividend until they do re-purchase the stock. That’s a good deal!

The free market purists’ objection to this is that it smacks at government control of the banking industry, which is called nationalization. They are correct. It smacks, but it is not nationalization because that would require the government to own at least 51 percent of the entity for an indefinite period of time.

The ownership by the taxpayers is going to be relatively small and nowhere near the amount needed to be called nationalization. So what’s the problem?

The problem is economic illiteracy and media incompetence. Some people want to continue to fan the flames of anger and outrage over how we got into this mess in the first place. Anger and outrage will not solve the problem.

Unprecedented problems require unprecedented solutions. The actions by the Treasury are a win-win for the taxpayer. But the mainstream media does not get brownie points for reporting win-win solutions for the taxpayers. Their focus is doom and gloom.

These actions by the Treasury, the Federal Reserve Bank and the actions by the Federal Depositors Insurance Corporation (FDIC) are all intended to help solve an unprecedented financial crisis. Unlike steps taken prior to and during the Great Depression, these actions have a high probability of success.

In order for these collective actions to work, the media needs to calm its crisis rhetoric, and Congress needs to just shut up with its political rhetoric.

Now don’t tell Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, but if this works, and I believe it will, the Bush Administration will have gotten this one right.

As we say in the South, y’all hush!


Cain’s TARP talk, praise of the Fed could hurt him with conservative voters

The Hill

Businessman Herman Cain has shot to the top of the polls with support from Tea Party members, but his backing of the Troubled Asset Relief Program and opposition to auditing the Federal Reserve could hurt him with those same voters.

Levi Russell, the spokesman for the fiscally conservative group Americans for Prosperity, said that Cain will have to explain his stances on these issues if he is to remain a first-tier candidate.

“Among the Tea Party audience, the TARP bailout is something they’re adamantly against, and they’re going to absolutely need to hear more from him on this issue to be comfortable with him,” said Russell. “I don’t know one Tea Party activist who’d say it’s a bad idea to audit the Fed, that’s not a popular position for him to be staking out.”

Cain served as chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve in the mid-1990s and, in Tuesday’s debate, expressed his admiration for former Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan.

“The way Alan Greenspan oversaw the Fed and the way he coordinated with all of the Federal Reserve banks, I think that it worked fine back in the early 1990s,” Cain said.

Cain’s praise of Greenspan drew a sharp rebuke from Paul, who called the former chairman a “disaster” — to loud cheers from the audience.

At another point, Paul quoted Cain as calling those who wanted to audit the Fed “ignorant.” Cain said he was being misquoted, but that quote has been unearthed and verified.

“I think it is going to hurt him,” Ivers said. “He’s contradicting himself, he’s making false claims to say there’s nothing to learn and it’s going to hurt him in Iowa.”

Craig Robinson, a former Iowa Republican Party political director who now runs the influential conservative news website The Iowa Republican, agreed that those issues could hurt Cain.

“Just like Rick Perry was vetted through these debates, Cain will be vetted through his debate performances and what he said in news interviews,” he said. “Some of the things he said, especially the Greenspan stuff, is really out of line with the Tea Party movement, and at some point that will come home to roost.”

Obama Sends U.S. Troops to Central Africa to Aid Campaign Against Rebel Group

FOX News

Obama has sent a letter to Congress informing them that he will be sending U.S. troops to Uganda to help local forces fight rebels.

Obama is sending about 100 U.S. troops to central Africa to help local forces battle the Lord’s Resistance Army, a rebel group that the administration says has waged a campaign of murder, rape and kidnapping for more than two decades.

Obama said Friday the troops will act as advisers in efforts to hunt down rebel leader Joseph Kony but will not engage in combat except in self-defense, according to a letter to Congress that was obtained by Fox News.

The White House says the first troops arrived in Uganda on Wednesday. Ultimately, they will also deploy in South Sudan, the Central African Republic and Congo.

Obama's announcement came in low-key fashion -- a letter to the leader of the House, Speaker John Boehner, in which he said the deployment "furthers U.S. national security interests and foreign policy and will be a significant contribution toward counter-LRA efforts in central Africa."

Gov. Rick Perry will take a day to travel to Las Vegas and attend the National Shooting Sports Foundation's SHOT (Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade) show, his spokesman said Wednesday.

The governor is going only for the day to attend a book signing for his book Fed Up!, which argues that Washington is out of control.

The show is being held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center and is expected to draw 50,000 industry professionals.

Perry had stationed his promotional booth right in front of a Texas based specialty weapons manufacturer LaRue Tactical. In the little spare time Perry has he has been known to show up at LaRue Tactical to do a little shooting. LaRue Tactical is well known in the high end AR-15 platform gun enthusiast circles.

I bet Perry will also be signing more than a few of his namesake gun, the Ruger .380 True Texan Coyote Special. Although the newly released Smith & Wesson Governor revolver would also be an appropriate gun to get signed by one of the most gun friendly Governors in the country.

It would be so great to have a President that felt like Perry does about guns. Instead of 70 plus rounds of golf like Obama does. To have a President out there target shooting. heh heh

I honestly believe in an individual’s right to carry for the way it helps a citizen with self-defense and for the deterrent effect it has on other violent crimes. This keeps us all safer."

Cain’s Sales Tax Would Hurt Consumer Spending

Cain’s Sales Tax Would Hurt Consumer Spending


Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain’s plan to create a national sales tax would hurt retailers, threaten economic growth and shift the tax burden onto the middle class and poor, tax experts and business groups said.

Cain’s so-called 9-9-9 plan, which would replace the current tax code with a system of three separate taxes of 9 percent each, has boosted his popularity among voters. The former chief executive officer of Godfather’s Pizza has surged in polls in recent weeks, and a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released this week put him in the lead.

Tax experts and business groups interviewed yesterday don’t like his tax plan as much as voters. They said it would shift the burden to middle-income and poor families and would hurt sales across the economy, at least in the short term.

“There will be a noticeable decline in consumer spending for some years,” said Rachelle Bernstein, vice president of the National Retail Federation, based in Washington, in an interview. “We know that that has an impact on consumer spending and GDP.”

Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product.

Cain has proposed a 9 percent sales tax on all goods and services, another 9 percent on personal income and the third on corporate gross income. During the debate in New Hampshire sponsored by Bloomberg News and the Washington Post/

Conotimue article please CLICK HERE, thank you.


Wild Thing's comment......

The more I learn about the 9-9-9 plan the more I do not like it at all. Cain's plan is a deal-breaker for most senior citizens The 9-9-9 plan will not fly with retirees, and that's probably the largest voting block in this country, AND GROWING FAST! My response to 9-9-9 is no. He apparently hasn’t thought through the implications of it.

Also Cain seriously needs to clarify his conception of individual state's laws regarding the Second Amendment.

Governor Perry Appears on Kudlow and Company on Oct. 13, 2011 and Previews His Energy Plan

Rick Perry and a preview of his enery plan


Rick Perry to unveil far-reaching energy plan

USA Today

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is set to unveil a far-reaching energy plan Friday that would dramatically expand oil and gas exploration — and, he may hope, also reboot his presidential campaign.

"Getting the energy industry back to work is the quickest way to spark 1.2 million good, well-paid American jobs, and at the same time reduce our dependence on energy from nations that are all too often hostile to the United States," Perry said in a telephone interview Thursday with USA TODAY previewing the speech at a Pittsburgh steel mill.

He vowed to reverse many of the energy policies pursued by President Obama, saying "the radical environmental movement" had been "sitting in the front of the train, being the engineer" during Obama's tenure.

As president, Perry says, he would move to:

Open federal lands to more energy exploration and production, including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska and lands in the Mountain West. More offshore drilling would be permitted in the Gulf of Mexico and off the southern Atlantic coast.

He would continue to bar drilling in the Florida Everglades, a fragile ecological area located in what happens to be a key primary and general-election state.

Approve pipelines to facilitate new energy fields, including the Keystone XL Pipeline. The controversial project, which would carry crude oil from Canada to refineries as far south as Texas, is now stalled in a State Department review.

Suspend and reconsider many of the Environmental Protection Agency's recent mandates and regulations, including rules designed to improve air quality. He would repeal the EPA's authority over CO2 and other greenhouse gases linked to climate change.

Curb the ability of environmentalists and others to slow down projects through the courts. He would establish firm litigation deadlines to expedite lawsuits and consider establishing special federal environmental courts with expertise that presumably would allow them to reach decisions more quickly.

End the practice of federal agencies reaching consent decrees with advocacy groups, forcing them to pursue lawsuits instead.

Phase out subsidies and tax incentives that benefit specific kinds of energy. Some favor the oil and gas industry; others were devised to encourage development of such renewable energy sources as wind power. He would retain a research and development tax credit available to all types of energy producers.

"It's leveling the playing field," Perry said. States would be free to encourage particular forms of alternative energy themselves, he said, as he did with a wind energy program in Texas.

He called the energy speech "phase one" of detailing his policy proposals, to be followed by the end of the month by a plan on taxes and federal spending.


Perry's blitz starts with Larry Kudlow's CNBC show Thursday night ( see video above) . The Texas governor will then hit almost all of the morning news programs.

He is slated to appear on "Good Morning America," "Today," "The Early Show," "Fox & Friends" and Sioux City's KTIV. Perry will also call into radio programs in Iowa with Sam Clovis, New Hampshire with Brian Tilton and South Carolina with Ashley Byrd. Perry is additionally going to sit for an interview for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The aggressive schedule reflects not just the desire to drive the message of the day — by promoing the speech — but also a view in Perryworld that they need to play to the candidate's strengths more. They hope to give voters a better sense of Perry via those venues in which he performs better and to change the impression left from his debate appearances.


Wild Thing's comment........

LOVE it, thank you Gov. Perry, I hope you win the election and then go on to do as much if not all of the things you would like to do.

If you watch the video above he also discusses health care etc.

Governor Haley Barbour on twitter - @haleybarbour - "Good candidates are patient. They don't have to win every debate or straw poll." Keep the faith my friends. This is a marathon not a sprint.

Carlsberg Beer Pull Brilliant Guerrilla Marketing Stunt In Cinema

Carlsberg Beer ad in Belgium with 148 bikers in a movie theatre.
Some innocent couples want to take their seat, but the room is filled with not-so- friendly gentlemen... How will they react?
As you’ll see from the video most of the people who walk in pick up on the intimidating atmosphere and leave immediately rather than taking the last 2 seats in the theater. I won’t ruin the end of the video for you but it is really marvelous advertising that is sure to put a huge smile on your face.

Carlsberg Pull Brilliant Guerrilla Marketing Stunt In Cinema

Beer adverts usually follow the same storyline about who has the coldest chilling system, the best sports offers or the hottest models but a new campaign from Carlsberg is highly original and features a night out at the cinema. It’s a guerrilla campaign that is secretly filmed and features a cinema full of burly scary looking men with the only 2 seats in the place being sold to unsuspecting couples.

As you’ll see from the video below most of the people who walk in pick up on the intimidating atmosphere and leave immediately rather than taking the last 2 seats in the theater. I won’t ruin the end of the video for you but it is really marvelous advertising that is sure to put a huge smile on your face.

The video already has 800,000 views in the couple of days since it has launched and I have a feeling it is going to turn in to a massive online viral hit for Carlsberg. Why can’t all beer companies be this original?

LOL I LOVE this ad.

Rick Perry — Best Hope for Solid Conservative in 2012

Rick Perry — Best Hope for Solid Conservative in 2012


By John Stemberger

I have good news and bad news for conservatives. But the good news and the bad news are both the same thing: We have six very impressive, lifelong conservative candidates running for the presidency.

They are the smartest candidates, the most principled candidates, the most patriotic candidates, the most persuasive candidates, and the candidates with the best ideas.

The problem lies in the fact that conservatives do not have a single favorite candidate. They have six favorite candidates! And as long as they remain split between each of their six “favorite” candidates, they will eventually help nominate Mitt Romney — the very candidate they least trust on the issues.

There are three fairly cohesive voting blocs that make up the Republican primary coalition.

The first and largest group is the social conservatives, who are comprised of primarily evangelicals and pro-life Catholics.

The second group is the GOP establishment, which primarily consists of Republican Party leaders, and big money and corporate interests.

The third, and newest group on the scene within the Republican coalition, is the dynamic, but not as predictable, tea party supporters.

Each of these three coalition groups could potentially control the nomination process if — and only if — the members of that group unite behind one candidate.

William F. Buckley used to say that he was not for “the most conservative” candidate. He said he was for “the most conservative candidate that is electable.” Unfortunately, conservatives today are not following Buckley’s wise advice and strategic counsel.

The GOP establishment behaves almost entirely pragmatically. They typically try to find the Republican most likely to be elected and back that candidate (irrespective of what that candidate believes) in order to ensure party insiders retain control.

Former Republican and former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is the best example of how the GOP establishment will elect any Republican that they think can win. Currently GOP establishment types are doing the same thing again with Mitt Romney. Party regulars are uniting rapidly behind Romney and as a result, GOP insiders are controlling the nomination.

On the other hand, many evangelicals and tea party supporters are behaving as ideological purists. In their effort to choose the most conservative candidate (irrespective of their ability to win) they are violating Buckley’s principle and as a result are unknowingly helping the GOP establishment secure the nomination of Mitt Romney.

There is only one scenario where this can be stopped: Evangelical and tea party conservatives must immediately unite behind Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Rick Perry is the most conservative candidate who is also electable. Perry is our last and best hope to send a solid conservative to the White House.

On all three legs of Ronald Reagan’s winning issue coalition, economics, social issues and foreign policy, Rick Perry should be the conservative’s choice.

Perry is also the most electable candidate in the general election. The campaign in November of 2012 will be about one thing — jobs. Gov. Perry has the best record on creating new jobs and revitalizing the economy.

In contrast, Romney is one of the most problematic candidates in the general election. With Romenycare, his flip-flops on social issues, his inability to carry Southern states, and his lack of appeal to the critical Latino swing vote, Mitt Romney is another John McCain waiting to happen.

There is no way the base is going to be excited about and pour themselves into a Romney campaign.

Principled politics is an art form. Participating in it with as many candidates as there are now is like a complex chess match. You must capture the tension between principle and pragmatism. Rick Perry captures it perfectly. He is the William F. Buckley candidate.

VP Joe Biden Warns of More Rapes and Murders If Jobs Bill Is Not Passed

Biden Warns of More Rapes and Murders If Jobs Bill Is Not Passed

Weekly Standard

In Flint, Michigan, Vice President Joe Biden suggested that more rapes and murders could occur if President Barack Obama's jobs bill is not passed.

"In 2008, when Flint had 265 sworn officers on their police force, there were 35 murders and 91 rapes in this city," Biden said. "In 2010, when Flint had only 144 police officers, the murder rate climbed to 65 and rapes--just to pick two categories--climbed to 229. In 2011, you now only have 125 shields. God only knows what the numbers will be this year for Flint if we don't rectify it."

The vice president also seemed to suggest that the Obama administration's first stimulus is the reason rapes and murders were not even higher in 2010 and 2011." And God only knows what that number would have been had we not been able to get a little bit of help," Biden said


From Rush Limbaugh about this statement by Biden:

RUSH: So rapes and murders are increasing in Flint, Michigan, because the American Jobs Act was not passed by the Republicans. That's Vice President Bite Me's disgusting message to police officers and firefighters in Flint, Michigan. (imitating Biden) "Oh, yeah, rapes and murders, they're climbing here 'cause we don't have enough money to hire more of you here in Flint because the Republicans killed the stimulus bill." Well, hey, who's fearmongering now? Why don't we come up with a stop rape bill? Isn't that next? Obama needs to wave around a piece of paper and call it "The Stop Rape Bill." The stop rapes in Flint bill and put that up for a vote. Since when did this become the province of the federal government anyway?

And for all of you in Flint, Michigan, who might have been familiar with what Vice President Biden just told you, it happened this morning in Flint, Michigan, let me just tell you that whatever jobs there were in this bill for firemen and police and teachers, they were for one year. They were for one year, and after that it would have been up to you in Flint to pay to keep them on the payroll. It was nothing more than a scam from the get-go, and it was never intended to pass, and it is disgusting for the vice president of the United States to head out to Flint, Michigan, and to blame rape and crime on Republicans not passing a bogus jobs bill that was never intended to be passed. The jobs bill was intended to be defeated so that Republicans would be blamed for it. It's a campaign tactic. And who knew that higher taxes stopped rape anyway? 'Cause that's all this bill was.

Two Must See Videos Of Gov. Rick Perry ~ You Won't Be Sorry!

Videos were done AFTER the debate Tuesday night as he spoke to the crowd.

Here are two videos of Rick Perry the way that we want to hear him speak at the debates, courtesy of Aaron Gardner, via Moe Lane, via Red State.

Governor Perry has the reputation of a swaggering Texan, but he's not one to knock others off the podium. He's a gentleman, who is out to defeat the real enemy: Barack Obama. and big, centralizes, expensive, inefficient and unConstitutional Government. These are the real threats to liberty and the real job killers.

In these videos, he's speaking to a group of college students about jobs, tar sand oil fields and the proposed gas pipeline from Canada through the US, and about Social Security and Medicare.

Below are TWO awesome videos of Governor Rick Perry‘s remarks after the debate Tuesday night. They are both a must see!!! ~ Wild Thing


The first part of Perry's post-debate remarks on 10/12/2011


The Q&A from the post-debate speech. GREAT responses here.


Wild Thing's comment........

What thoughtful and intelligent answers from Governor Perry.

I hope he can get this comfort on the debate stage soon and no one will be able to surpass him!

And NO teleprompter!

Rick Perry is a solid fiscal and social conservative and has a great executive governing record in Texas.

State Tea Party Express Has Great Ad About Two Rick Perry and Scott Walker Two True Leaders


New “State Tea Party Express” ad slams Obama on jobs, gives props to Rick Perry and Scott Walker

State Tea Party Express, a newly created 501c4 non-profit group that comes from the makers of the Tea Party Express, is about to launch a nationwide ad blitz with the following TV ad.

The ad slams Barack Obama as a job destroyer and points to Wisconsin and Texas as shining examples of job friendly environments. The ad is curiously favorable to Rick Perry, and brings about the feel that folks behind the Tea Party Express might be leaning towards Rick Perry with their political action support.

October 12th marks the launch of a new media and grassroots campaign aimed at confronting President Obama’s “Jobs Plan.” With unemployment remaining at record levels, we can no longer rely on the past policies of out-of-control spending and taxation that continue to fail. We must look to leaders the have faced similar economic turmoil, but were able to obtain positive results.

Two of these examples are Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin and Governor Rick Perry in Texas. Gov. Walker has led a manufacturing driven jobs recovery with the sector growing at a rate more than double the national average. Gov. Perry’s policies during his tenure created over 1 million jobs – even while the nation lost over 2 million jobs.


Wild Thing's comment........

Excellenrt ad! We do need men like Perry and Walker.

Mitt Romney Bashes Contract With America

Mitt Romney On The Contract With America (Romney Bashed It)

"Um, let me tell you in my view it is not a good idea to go into a contract like was organized by the Republican party in Washington laying out a whole series of things which the party said these are the things we are gonna do. I think that's a mistake. I think instead that if you wanna get something done in Washington you don't end up picking teams with Republicans on one side and Democrats on the other entering into a contract and saying ok were all gonna do this and if course then that works then the other side feels like they are the loser, but if it wins they feel like they are the winner. I don't like winners or losers in Washington..."

Wild Thing's comment.........

Romney is one of those Postmoderns who think the highest principle is “tolerance”. That supersedes all other virtues....and the only thing that is not tolerated is intolerance (which are people with virtue who won’t cave into evil). He thinks it is “good” to cave into evil “get along”.
We used to think that those who would negotiate with the devil were evil. They still are...but Romney thinks it is good to compromise with the devil.

Report: ‘Romneycare’ a jobs killer Study finds Bay State lost thousands of jobs

Report: ‘Romneycare’ a jobs killer Study finds Bay State lost thousands of jobs

Boston Herald

The Bay State’s controversial 2006 universal health-care plan — also known as “Romneycare” — has cost Massachusetts more than 18,000 jobs, according to an exclusive blockbuster study that could provide ammo to GOP rivals of former Gov. Mitt Romney as he touts his job-creating chops on the campaign trail.

“Mandating health insurance coverage and expanding the demand for health services without increasing supply drove up costs. Economics 101 tells us that,” said Paul Bachman, research director at Suffolk University’s Beacon Hill Institute, the conservative think tank that conducted the study. The Herald obtained an exclusive copy of the findings.

“The ‘shared sacrifice’ needed to provide universal health care includes a net loss of jobs, which is attributable to the higher costs that the measure imposed,” said David Tuerck, the institute’s executive director.

Wild Thing's comment......

And yet the GOP wants this guy?? sheesh! And unless people wake up and really start to support Rick Perry and see that he is light years better then Romney then we will end up with Romney for sure.

White House Met With Three Romney Advisors to Draft Obamacare

White House met with three Romney advisors to draft Obamacare

Daily Caller

The Obama administration may have relied much more heavily on Romney’s Massachusetts healthcare legislation as a blueprint for Obamacare than was previously believed.

White House visitor logs obtained by NBC News revealed that three of Romney’s healthcare advisers had up to a dozen meetings with senior administration officials, including one in the Oval Office presided over by President Barack Obama.

“They really wanted to know how we can take that same approach we used in Massachusetts and turn that into a national model,” MIT economist and Romney healthcare adviser Jon Gruber told NBC.

What’s more, the records show Gruber was given a $380,000 contract in 2009 to help draft new legislation based on the Massachusetts healthcare law.

The White House tapped another Romney adviser, John Kingsdale, who in 2006 was put in charge of the state agency tasked with implementing Romney’s healthcare plan. In 2009, Kingsdale attended three White House meetings on healthcare.

A third Romney adviser, John McDonough, attended four White House healthcare meetings. McDonough shared an “innovator in health” award with the Massachusetts governor, after leading a health advocacy group in Massachusetts and working with Romney as a consumer advocate on the legislation.

Though Obama has repeatedly said that he modeled Obamacare on Romney’s healthcare plan, Romney has tried to wash his hands of the association.

“He does me the great favor of saying that I was the inspiration of his plan. If that’s the case, why didn’t you call me?” Romney said in a GOP debate. “Why didn’t you ask what was wrong? Why didn’t you ask if this was an experiment, what worked and what didn’t? … I would have told him, ‘What you’re doing, Mr. President, is going to bankrupt us.’”

Obamacare’s most unpopular feature, the individual mandate that requires all citizens to purchase a healthcare plan, was lifted wholesale from Romney’s healthcare reform package, which he touted as a way of “expanding coverage to all our citizens.”

Gruber’s involvement is the most damning association for Romney, and the GOP candidate has done his best to play down the connection. Gruber, however, has not.

He told NBC that Romney was “the father of health-care reform. I think he is the single person most responsible for health care reform in the United States. … If Mitt Romney had not stood up for this reform in Massachusetts … I don’t think it would have happened nationally. So I think he really is the guy with whom it all starts.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

Romney was never ever consrvative. Rick Perry is and always has been conservative, but he was the victim of a Romney “gotcha” moment where the anti-Hispanics in the GOP got to portray him as soft on “illegals.” He’s not soft on illegals of any ethnic background, and the state of Texas has spent a fortune on border control under him.

Rick Perry, No Ad Jingles Like Herman Cain Uses TOO Much Of, No RomneyCare Like Romney ...Perry Is The ONE With Substance and Experience For President!


Yesterday Rush Limbaugh said that Christie's endorsment of Romney is proof that the GOP establishment is "desperate" for Romney to be the Republican nominee.

"They're doing everything they can to make sure -- you know, Bachmann, Santorum, they're not in the top tier now, but they want to make sure they stay there." Limbaugh said, "Perry is the only genuine conservative threat to Romney, and this is an effort to take him out."


Cain appeared on Neil Boortz’s show today, and said the following:

Boortz, at the tail end of the interview, asks Cain how he’d do in a debate against Obama:

“It would almost be no contest.”

Ticking off ways he could compete with Obama, Boortz says that Cain would be able to talk about the black experience in America.

Cain’s response: “[Obama's] never been a part of the black experience in America.”

If Herman Cain wants to be the second black American president he needs to show some restraint once in awhile.
We know his mother was white, but Obama is known as the first black president and no matter what else has has been, the worst president in the history of America, Cain cannot take Obama's blackness away from him.
Cain tends to speak a lot in quips and too much of the time it leaves communicating what he means by the wayside.


Wild Thing's comment........

Very unimpressed with Herman Cain. I am tired of hearingi “999″ for one thing, but also the jingles need to stop. They make him come off with no substance….and not presidential. This is not about who can write or say the best advertising jingles, it is about the most powerful office in our country and it used to be the most powerful office in the world. The one other countries looked to and counted on.

So No thank you Herman Cain, you do not have my vote.

Rick Perry has the experience, has class, and knows how to get our country back on track. And Rick has substance.

During the debate they stayed on Romney way too much. But when they did get to Perry he did ok and a couple of times he did GREAT and much better then the last debates.

Perry did good, he sounded solid and trustworthy.

We have to remember that this is not Romney's first time he is an old hand at this. Perry is the newest one at it for President and that is a whole new ballgame, different then running for Gov.

Bottom line I am pleased with Perry, tired of hearing 999 from Cain. ( augh!) and like how Newt speaks up the way he does.

My vote as always goes for Perry, he would be the best imo by far compared to the others.

"Comeback Kid?" Perry Interview by Parade Magazine (comming out 10-23)


If a week is a year in politics, Texas Gov. Rick Perry has been through a decade since he entered the race to be the GOP presidential nominee on Aug. 13. At first he was heralded as the great right hope of the Republican Party, but after missteps in debates and comments on hot-button issues—Social Security, immigration—he faltered in the polls. Perry is undeterred—the American people, he says, need his blend of straight talk, job-creation savvy, and hand-on-the-heart patriotism.

He took a break from his hectic campaign schedule last week to sit down with Lynn Sherr for an interview with PARADE magazine.

So, what happened to you in the early debates?

Rick Perry: "A debate is an eight-ring circus, and you have a minute to talk. Sometimes it can be hard to explain your position on a host of issues. I readily admit I’m not the slickest politician nor the smoothest debater."

Do you feel as if the other candidates have been ganging up on you in the debates?

Rick Perry: "When you come into the fray and you’re leading in the polls, you’re going to get attacked by everyone. I get it. I’m a big boy, and I know how to play that game. "

Your critics say you’re not electable. Your response?

Rick Perry:"Well, I disregard that. Americans are looking for somebody to stand up and tell them the truth, and I have a record to back it up. Ultimately, if I can explain my heart, my jobs record, and my philosophy to Americans, I’m pretty confident that I’ll win."

You’re a very successful fund-raiser. But it’s been reported that nearly half of the major donors during your governorship ended up receiving business contracts, political appointments, or tax breaks. The word that’s been applied to you is “cronyism.” How do you respond?

Rick Perry:"That’s the same old, tired criticism which comes when people don’t want to talk about the real issues, like how do we create jobs."

But is there any truth to it?

Rick Perry:"No. Decisions in Texas are generally legislative, with the lieutenant governor, speaker, and governor making them together. There were no unilateral decisions from my office dealing with those issues. And I’ll go back to my record. I’ve been elected three times as governor. The people obviously have confidence in me."

Your wife, Anita Perry, tends to stay out of the spotlight. At the Sept. 12 debate, you described her as “beautiful, thoughtful, incredible.” What is she like as a person?

Rick Perry:"She’s very smart and loyal. She’s not predisposed to be a public figure since she saw how her father, a small-town doctor, had to be shared with all these other people. She’s also a great patriot. "

Some of our recent presidents have admitted to experimenting with drugs. What about you?

Rick Perry:"No, ma’am. Not unless you call caffeine a drug. Or cold beer or whiskey."

Governor, how would you make the White House more like Texas?

Rick Perry:We’d have Blue Bell ice cream and Hill Country barbecue.

Look for the full story in the Oct. 23 issue of PARADE.

I see him more like Reagan than any of the others.....a good man with good values.

Who Is Anita Perry? ~ Wonderful Interview!

Rick and Anita Perry were married in 1982.

Who Is Anita Perry?


Talk about meeting cute: Anita Thigpen first saw Rick Perry at a piano recital in Haskell, Texas, when she was 6 and he was 8. They began dating in high school and wed in 1982.

Known as private and shy, the candidate's wife could be his best spokesperson. Perry, 59, is in fact a warm, chatty woman brimming with Texas charm who finishes her interview by inviting the writer out for a beer.

A former nurse, she has begun traveling the United States to campaign for her husband. In this rare one-on-one, Perry opens up about the man she calls "Ricky." (Look for the full story in the Oct. 23 issue of PARADE.)

LYNN SHERR: Let’s start with an easy question. How would you describe your husband?

ANITA PERRY: I think he’s the most handsome man. And he’s creative, smart, kind, thoughtful. …

What’s your pet name for him?

Ricky. He calls me Nita.

Your husband says you urged him to enter the race. Why?

My daddy was a family practice doctor, and in the 1970s after Medicare began, I remember him telling me, as wise as he was, “We’re moving towards socialized medicine. The first time you take a dollar from the federal government, they’ll start trying to control your life.” I became a nurse, and I’ve seen government take away more and more of our freedom to choose the care we want and the drugs we want.

When did you first talk to your husband about running?

I started thinking about it last November after his reelection. Then in June a friend sent me a magazine article; it was about Obamacare. I read it and thought, “I don’t want more of the same.” One day Rick and I were talking and I said, “I am so concerned with our children’s future and their children’s future and what will happen to them. We’ve given so many years to public service, and we need to make a difference.” I didn’t want us to wake up when we were 80 and regret we didn’t do this. Our country is in danger, in my opinion.

He’s taken a lot of heat over his 2007 executive order mandating that sixth-grade girls get the HPV vaccine unless their parents opted out. [It was overturned by the state legislature.] What role did you play in his decision?

I didn’t know anything about it.

What was your reaction when you heard about it?

I wish he’d talked to me first.

Was it the wrong decision?

No, but I thought he handled it the wrong way. I’ve been cochair for the March of Dimes immunization program, and I’m pro-immunization. I would have supported the vaccine. I do not see it as an opening for sexual promiscuity in any way. I see it as another immunization.

Do you think your husband’s taking some unfair hits?

Yes, he’s said he made a mistake. He just wants to get rid of cancer in our lifetime. I don’t know how many other men would admit, “I made a mistake.”

Presidential campaigns usually get very ugly. Can you handle it?

It’s already ugly. [laughs] It’s so unkind and unfair, because you know what? All we want to do is serve our country, fight for freedom, and bring back America, the greatest country in the world. The other day, an older lady asked me, “What do you think about the polls?” I said, “I can’t look at them. All I can do is get up every day and tell everyone what a wonderful man and leader Rick Perry is.”

If he is elected president next year, what issues or causes will you take up as first lady?

It’s hard to say. I’m a health care professional. I love our military. But we’ve got a lot of work to do before we make it to the White House.

You’ve said your husband prays every night and morning. Yes. He always asks for wisdom for our president. What about you?

I pray that God will send his angels to protect my children.

Is it hard for you to go out and make campaign speeches?

It’s not hard. I’ve had lots of years to do it, and I’ve become comfortable in that role. I love meeting people—goodness gracious, that’s the best part.

When your husband gives speeches, do you ever find yourself wanting to put words in his mouth?
No, because he always says the right thing.


Well, most of the time. Whether he says it in a way that you or I want to hear …

One Of Obama's CZARS, JOHN HOLDREN, Was An Appointee of Mitt Romney!

One Of Obama's CZARS, JOHN HOLDREN, Was An Appointee of Mitt Romney!

Mitt Romney’s Troubling Appointments

Mitt Romney’s supporters have been dogging Governor Perry on him acting as Texas campaign manager for Al Gore’s abortive 1988 presidential run as one of the Seven Dwarfs. The critique runs, dishonestly I might add, that Al Gore was an environmental kook then, ergo Perry is an environmental kook. Because something.

This is just balderdash. In 1988, Al Gore was a moderate-conservative senator from Tennessee who was a very attractive candidate. His descent into self parody started much later.

I rarely resort to publishing oppo material circulated by campaigns but I am making an exception today. File this particular story under “sauce for the gander.”

If personnel equal policy we have a hint from Mitt Romney’s appointments while governor of Massachusetts what his administration will look like. Van Jones may not be recalled but it may not make much difference.

In 2003, Romney chose a hard core environmental activist to be Secretary of Commonwealth Development. In this position he was charged with developing a scheme to restrict “greenhouse gas” emissions. According to the Wall Street Journal

Just days after his 2002 election, Mr. Romney hired Douglas Foy, one of the state’s most prominent environmental activists, and put him in charge of supervising four state agencies. … With Mr. Foy by his side, Mr. Romney joined activists outside an aging, coal-fired plant in 2003 to show his commitment to the emissions caps. “I will not create jobs or hold jobs that kill people, and that plant, that plant kills people,” he said

But when it became obvious that he would not win reelection as governor, Romney set his sights on the GOP presidential nomination. In remaking himself he repudiated his own secretary carrying out his own plan.

Significantly, two of Romney’s appointments have how found a home in the Obama White House.

Gina McCarthy, the chief EPA clean air regulator, also worked as an environmental regulator for then-Governor Romney. Her role now is as point guard (nyuk) in the Obama Administrations fight to make coal fired electric generating plants extinct.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has taken most of the fire from Republicans as her agency rolls out a slew of controversial new climate and clean air rules. But McCarthy, the EPA assistant administrator of the Office of Air and Radiation, has taken on much of the heavy lifting of writing, structuring, and implementing the rules.

“Lisa’s the coach and Gina’s the quarterback” in the work of rolling out new clean air regulations, said Daniel Weiss, an energy and climate policy expert at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank with close ties to the Obama administration. “She’s running the plays, improvising on the line.

Another Romney environmental adviser in the effort to regulate “greenhouse gases” is now Obama’s Director of Science and Technology Policy, John Holdren. Dr. Holdren has some sick views:

President Obama’s “science czar,” John Holdren, once floated the idea of forced abortions, “compulsory sterilization,” and the creation of a “Planetary Regime” that would oversee human population levels and control all natural resources as a means of protecting the planet — controversial ideas his critics say should have been brought up in his Senate confirmation hearings.

Those plans include forcing single women to abort their babies or put them up for adoption; implanting sterilizing capsules in people when they reach puberty; and spiking water reserves and staple foods with a chemical that would make people sterile.

To help achieve those goals, they formulate a “world government scheme” they call the Planetary Regime, which would administer the world’s resources and human growth, and they discuss the development of an “armed international organization, a global analogue of a police force” to which nations would surrender part of their sovereignty

Wild Thing's comment......

Holdren is a real sicko he is for sterialization and all kinds of things. If Romney wins it will be in some ways a lot like more of Obama imo.

Code Pink Protest’s 10K Run Benefiting WOUNDED WARRIORS – Rep Allen West

Thousands Run Army Ten-Miler

30,000 people were expected to compete in the 27th annual Army Ten-Miler on Sunday.

This year saw the introduction of a new start and finish line for the runners. The race began on route 110 and finish in the Pentagon North Parking Lot. In between, runners crossed into Washington, D.C. via the Memorial Bridge, circled around the Watergate complex and skirted the south side of the National Mall before doubling back and recrossing the Potomac via the George Mason Memorial Bridge.


Code Pink Protest’s 10K Run Benefiting WOUNDED WARRIORS – Rep Allen West

From LTC Rep. Allen West:

Just finished running Army Ten Miler…and unofficial time was 1 hr 29 mins and change, great seeing many old friends and former bosses.

However, what struck me as shameful was Code Pink being out on the run course protesting. There were many Wounded Warriors doing the wheelchair race and running with their prosthetic devices. Perhaps Code Pink does not realize that those “Army Strong” men and women make it possible for them to stand on Independence Ave and demean their service, sacrifice, and commitment…….Land of the Free because we are the Home of the Brave!” Army Strong!

Harry Reid BLOCKS VOTE on Obama Jobs Bill

The Daily Caller

REID BLOCKS VOTE on Obama Jobs Bill

For all of President Obama’s insistence that Congress must “pass this bill now,” and Democrats’ assurances that they have the votes necessary to pass it, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was in no mood to vote on the president’s jobs-creation bill Tuesday afternoon.

Reid blocked a vote on Obama’s jobs bill after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made a motion to add it as an amendment to a bill being heard on the floor. That bill was an effort to put pressure on China to allow its currency to appreciate.

Occupy DC Protest Group Clash With Guards At The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum ~ These People Are Mentally Ill !

Occupy DC protest group Clash With Guards At The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum


Protesters clashed with security staff when they tried to enter a museum in Washington on Saturday, prompting one guard to use pepper spray and leading to at least one arrest, a spokeswoman said.

The incident occurred at The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum around 3:15 pm (1915 GMT), after hundreds of activists had marched from Freedom Plaza, near the White House, along the National Mall towards the US Capitol.

Some of those in the demonstration were affiliated with the Occupy DC protest group that sprung up earlier this week as a spin-off of the larger Occupy Wall Street movement in New York, angered at “corporate greed.”

Smithsonian spokeswoman Linda St. Thomas said a group of the protesters were confronted when they tried to push through the doors and enter the Air and Space Museum.

“When they were told they couldn’t bring the banners they were carrying inside one security officer used pepper spray,” she said.

“There were a couple of hundred protesters in the area at the time and Washington police were called. There was one arrest that I know of,” she added, noting that the museum closed its doors two hours early because of the clash.

Occupy DC, a young group of several dozen protesters, is camping out at McPherson Square on Washington’s K Street, where many political lobbyists have their offices.

Nancy Pelosi Gives Occupy DC Protests Her Blessing ~ And This Woman Is Elected To Office????OMG


House Democratic leader NANCY PELOSI, to CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR, for ABC’s “This Week,” on whether she supports the Occupy Wall Street protests: “Well, I support the message to the establishment — whether it’s Wall Street or the political establishment and the rest — that change has to happen. . . . I think one of the most angry responses I’ve seen to actions in Washington came after we passed the TARP bill. . . . People are angry . . . that they don’t have jobs. . . . [T]here’s nothing that makes you angrier than not being able to provide for your family or understand what your prospects are for the future. And I do think that, from what we saw after TARP, that the focus on Wall Street was one that they thought was a legitimate place to go: ‘Don’t do this again. Don’t put Main Street at the mercy of Wall Street.’. . . [N]ot to paint everyone on Wall Street with the same brush. That would not be fair.”

AMANPOUR: “I just want to get your reaction to some comments by Eric Cantor [at the Values Voter Summit]. He said, quote: ‘I’m increasingly concerned about the growing mobs occupying Wall Street and other cities around the country. . . . Believe it or not, some in this town have actually condoned the pitting of Americans against other Americans.’”

PELOSI: “I didn’t hear him say anything when the Tea Party was out demonstrating, actually spitting on members of Congress right here in the Capitol [that never happened — ed.]. And he and his colleagues were putting signs in the windows encouraging them.”

AMANPOUR: “But do you think it’s pitting Americans against Americans?”

PELOSI: “Well, that’s the American system. It’s the democratic system. We don’t all agree. We’d have a king if we were all of one mind. We don’t. We have different views. And the part of the democracy of our country is the expression that people give, and the Constitution guarantees that.”

Organizer Admits To Paying ‘Occupy DC’ Protesters ~ LOL These People Are So Pathetic!!!

Organizer admits to paying ‘Occupy DC’ protesters

The Daily Caller

Marxists, union officials, Code Pink leaders, and far left loons held a rally against capitalism today at the Chamber of Commerce Headquarters in Washington DC. The protesters don’t like the kind of jobs created by Chamber of Commerce members in a free society.

A liberal organizer told the Daily Caller on Thursday afternoon that he paid some Hispanics to attend “Occupy DC” protests happening in the nation’s capital.

TheDC attended the protest event, an expansion of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement that began in New York City. Some aspects of the protest, it turned out, are more Astroturf than grassroots.

One group of about ten Hispanic protesters marched behind a Caucasian individual from the DC Tenants Advocacy Coalition, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting rent control in Washington, D.C.

Asked why they were there, some Hispanic protesters holding up English protest signs could not articulate what their signs said.

Interviewed in Spanish, the protesters told conflicting stories about how their group was organized. Some said it was organized at their church, and that they were there as volunteers. Others, however, referred to the man from the DC Tenants Advocacy Coalition — the only Caucasian in the group — as their “boss.”

Why 'Occupy Wall Street' Is No Tea Party Movement

Why 'Occupy Wall Street' Is No Tea Party Movement

The FOX Nation

I'm a Tea Party Activist and 'Occupy Wall Street' Is No Tea Party

By Deneen Borelli

In a recent Washington Post article, Occupy Wall Street protestors were called a diverse group with “no single leader and no organized agenda.

Just like the tea party movement.

Organizers are “drawing inspiration from the Arab Spring” and “hope the New York protests can plant the seeds of a permanent national movement.”

Just like Tea Party, activists draw inspiration from America’s Founding Fathers and fostered a national movement.

Wall Street protesters heeded the call from a web site called Adbusters just like tea party rallies sprung up after CNBC editor Rick Santelli called for action during a live report in February of 2009.

Wall Street’s occupiers want job creation and sometimes dress like zombies. Tea partiers want job creation and sometimes dress like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

If only the Tea Party could get such dispassionate and objective coverage.

One aspect of the Occupy Wall Street and other leftist activism that is a definitive divergence with the tea party movement is disruptive behavior.

On October 1, over 700 Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested — mostly for disorderly conduct — during a march across the Brooklyn Bridge. Despite two other peaceful marches across the bridge by other groups earlier that day, the Occupy Wall Street crowd couldn’t resist blocking traffic and scuffling with police.

When not under arrest (approximately 100 other arrests occurred over the weeks of the protest), the Occupy Wall Street crowd is actually occupying the privately-owned Zuccotti Park, whose owners are working with city officials on plans to return it “to its intended purpose.”

This rowdy attitude of the radical left is something that, by mistake or design, is grossly unreported in the media. As the Tea Party must fend off allegations of being violent and racist, leftist protests that are unruly don’t get similar coverage.

I’ve been active in the Tea Party movement since 2009. As a black woman, I define the movement’s political diversity and have always been quick to defend its inclusiveness against those who would try to slur it with racist accusations.

Gov. Rick Perry's Speech At The Values Voter Summit in Washington,D.C. Yesterday

H/T The Right Scoop blog for the video

Rick Perry addressed a conservative audience at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., on Friday.

Rick Perry: I Am a Conservative

Rick Perry: I Am a Conservative ......."At the mention of a new leader in the White House, the crowd gave Perry a standing ovation.

Perry made sure his audience knew that his economic policies as governor helped spur job growth during a recession. As governor, he kept taxes low, regulation limited, and advocated tort reform – all of which he said made the Texas economy stronger. He vowed to implement the same policies for the entire nation if he becomes president.

"The only kind of stimulus that will work is the kind that puts more money in your pocket, not the government’s," he said.".......

Those in the White House today don't believe in American exceptionalism, they'd rather emulate the failed policies of Europe. But we see what their policies have led to. 14 million Americans out of work. 45 million Americans on food stamps. And according to WSJ, nearly half of Americans receive government assistance.

“American exceptionalism is the product of unlimited freedom and there is nothing troubling our nation today that cannot be solved by the rebirth of freedom.” — Perry

“I believe in this great country of ours. I believe in the capacity of our people to create prosperity through private ingenuity. I believe in the values of American people. Americans know anything worth achieving in life requires hard work not government’s handout.” - Perry

Perry: ...”You can’t spread success by punishing it. You can’t unite our country by dividing it.

“As a border governor I have dealt with the carnage that was caused by failures in our federal border policy,” he stated. “I know the answers to those failures is not to grant amnesty to those who have broken the law to come to this country.”

As governor, he vetoed a bill that would have given driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants and also advocated for photo identification to be presented when voting.

“There is no homeland security without border security,” Perry reassured his applauding audience.

9 U.S. Sheriffs Announce Press Conference to Call for Eric Holder’s Resignation ~ Press Conference This Morning

9 US Sheriffs Announce Press Conference to Call for Holder’s Resignation


Nine US sheriffs will hold a press conference on Friday morning and call for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign.

The sheriffs will also call for accessory to murder charges for any future victims of Fast and Furious guns.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and nine other elected sheriffs will hold a press conference to discuss ATF’s “Operation Fast and Furious.” 11am, Arizona Peace Officers Memorial, Wesley Bolin Plaza, Phoenix.


Holder Leading DOJ 'Cover-up' of Fast and Furious Investigation, Cornyn Says

Attorney General Eric Holder is leading what looks "more and more like a cover-up" of what he knew about a government-sanctioned gunrunning scheme that allowed hundreds of assault weapons to fall into the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels, says one of the key senators involved in the investigation.

Sen. John Cornyn told Fox News Wednesday that Holder is obstructing congressional investigations. “We need to get to the bottom of this and the attorney general is not helping,” Cornyn said.

“He’s obstructing access to the information that he says will exonerate him and his administration and would need to know what happened and we’re going to find out what happened," said the Texas Republican, who is chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Cornyn said Holder so far has given a “half-hearted and weak” explanation of what he knew about Fast and Furious and when he knew it. The attorney general needs to be called back to testify under oath before Congress, he said.

“If there’s nothing wrong here, if he just didn’t know about it, then he should welcome that kind of inquiry to clear up this confusion,” he said.

Instead, Cornyn said, Holder “is just hoping to brush this under the rug and as happens so often in Washington, it’s not the original offense that’s so bad as the cover-up and I’m afraid it’s beginning to look more and more like a cover-up.”

As Cain Continues To Race Bait....Cain Now Also Says He ‘Would Not Be Comfortable’ As Perry's Running Mate

Here is video of Texas Gov. Rick Perry telling Fox News’ Juliet Huddy that he knows “for a fact” that his family painted over the word “Nig*erhead” on a rock at their hunting camp in “1984″ shortly after they began using the camp. Perry said they found the word “very offensive.”

“All of us agree that the word that was on that rock is a very offensive rock and a very offensive word. At the moment we had to move to paint over that rock, we did. . . . I think there were some very much and strong inconsistencies and just infactual information that was in that story. I know for a fact in 1984 that rock was painted over. It was painted over very soon. . . . My family did that. We painted over that rock, and it stayed that way. I have no idea where or why people would say that they had seen that rock, because that’s just not the fact.”


Cain Says He ‘Would Not Be Comfortable’ As Perry's Running Mate

National Journal

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said on Thursday that he would definitely consider an invitation to run as the eventual nominee’s vice president, except if the nominee turns out to be Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

Cain, who rocketed to the top tier of the GOP field in several recent polls, was asked by reporters on the campaign trail for his thoughts on a hypothetical invitation to run as the eventual nominee’s No. 2. After offering the obligatory comment that he intends to be the nominee, Cain said, “Quite frankly, based upon Governor Perry’s position on some issues, I would not be comfortable being his vice presidential nominee.”

Cain said his concerns about Perry include "being soft on the border, issues relative to tuition for children of illegal aliens." As governor, Perry supported legislation offering in-state college tuition for the children of illegal immigrants, which has become a flash point in the campaign. "And I haven’t totally gone through all of his positions, but a lot of positions I have questions with," Cain said.

Cain, who is black, was also critical of Perry after the Washington Post reported on Sunday that his family owned a Texas hunting camp once known as "Niggerhead," a word that was painted on a rock near the camp’s entrance. Perry has maintained that his father painted over the word as soon as he bought the property in the 1980s.

Of a vice presidential slot in general, Cain said: "I would not say no to being vice president of the United States. But it would depend upon who got the nomination. I will support who gets the nomination. I know I have said that there are some people right now who I cannot support, but I wouldn’t say no to it. I could say yes. But it has to be someone who I believe I can complement them in their job by being able to bring my skills to the table."


THIS IS WHY WHAT HERMAN CAIN HAS DONE ON THIS SUBJECT ( about the rock) IS DANGEROUS IT PROMOTES THIS KIND OF THING. Herman Cain is in the same league as Rep Jackson Jr. and his attacks on Perry. Cain needs to STOP this crap now. And even make a statement to Jackson as well. Allen West took the high road and spoke out about this was a NON story. Applause for Allen West and Boo's for Cain! I expect this shit from Jackson but not from a fellow Republican. ~ Wild Thing

Rep. Jackson Jr. introduces resolution slamming Perry over offensive ranch sign

The Hill

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) on Thursday introduced a House resolution that calls on GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry to apologize for his family's decision to continue to lease a hunting ranch that once featured a stone at the entrance painted with the racially-offensive name "N-----head."

Jackson's resolution, which he read in its entirety on the House floor, also called on Perry's Republican rivals to condemn his use of the ranch's name, and asks Perry to condemn the use of the word as "totally offensive and inappropriate." It also asks him to supply a list of lawmakers who visited with Perry at the ranch over the years he used it.

Jackson's resolution was based on news reports that said Perry's family continued to use the West Texas hunting ranch for several years when "N-----head" could still be seen on the painted rock. Perry's campaign has said the word was painted over in 1983, but news reports note that others disagree with that account.

The ranch is still referred to by that name by some in Texas.

The resolution adds that when presented with this complaint last week, Perry responded by saying the word on the rock is an "offensive name that has no place in the modern world." Jackson said this implies that "it may have been OK and had an appropriate place in that community when he was growing up."

The presiding officer of the House said Jackson's resolution would be printed in the Congressional Record, but that House leaders would decide the question of whether it can be treated as a privileged resolution later.


From Rush Limbaugh... href="">Herman Cain Piggybacks on WaPo's Perry Smear

"You have the Washington Post with an unsupported nonstory, and here comes Herman Cain piggybacking on it trying to capitalize; essentially letting the mainstream media (in this case, the Washington Post) set the narrative. I'm gonna tell you, this is really disappointing to me. Herman Cain."


And this from Dan over at his own blog:

Regarding: "Herman Cain said Thursday that he would consider an invitation to join an eventual Republican presidential nominee as a vice presidential candidate — unless the nominee is Rick Perry."

Why Cain's Latest Unforced Error Matters

It's a foolish statement on more than one level.
I didn't open up my browser thinking, okay, Palin's out, it's time to choose a candidate. In fact, I remain open to any conservative to take the first battle to Romney. Herman Cain's statement above forced that choice on me. He is saying to conservatives, in effect, it's Rick Perry or it's me. While that's not exactly true, as others remain in the race, as regards Perry versus Cain, fine. Cain wanted an answer, he got it as far as I'm concerned. Otherwise, I would have been perfectly content to watch Perry and Cain and whomever else bang heads as we go forward.

If Cain can't keep himself from saying things that only, shall we say, bang himself, fine. As it isn't the first time, I'll just assume he enjoys doing it, for some strange reason.

Romney okay in the White House, Perry not okay? Huh? Herman! What the hell is on that pizza you been eating, or are you just sniffing the fumes as it burns in the oven?


Wild Thing's comment......

Shame on Cain.

Cain is missing an opportunity to send a powerful message to the democrats and the media that says race card politics is no longer acceptable. He just won't stop his race baiting. I sure as heck to NOT want a President that continues the race bating like Obama has been doing and Cain is doing just that.

Then regarding the very stupid comment about being a VP but not Perry's. Good grief. Herman Cain is wrong with you. Also I notice he never attacks Romney only Perry and that is even before his pulling the race card on Perry. Cain is a Romney guy to be sure. He previously endorsed (RINO) Mitt Romney: In 2008 and now would accept his invitation to be Romney’s VP in 2012. Hmmmmm not good.

Cain Jabs Palin Again Over 'flavor the week' Comment ~ Cain Needs To Get Off This Race Baiting

Cain Jabs Palin Again Over 'flavor the week' Comment ~ Cain Needs To Get Off This Race Baiting

CNN Political Ticker

Rising GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain turned Sarah Palin’s words against her Wednesday, saying he's unconcerned about a potential White House bid by the former Alaska governor as she’d be the “flavor of the week.”

"The thing about Cain supporters is we build, and then we build, and we build," Cain said Wednesday at a book signing in Florida. "They don't defect. My supporters aren't going to run to the flavor of the week."

Palin previously knocked Cain's recent surge in the polls, casting him as the "flavor of the week" after he won a much-watched Florida straw poll nearly two weeks ago.

But this isn't the first time Cain, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, showed his pique at Palin’s ice cream analogy.

In an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Cain joked Friday that his "flavor" was Haagan-Daas Black Walnut.

"Substance, that's the difference. I got the substance," Cain told Leno. "I'm the Black Walnut. It lasts longer than a week."

Wild Thing's comment.........

This makes the fourth time that I know of Herman Cain has made a point of bringing this up since Sarah said that about his being the flavor of the week. sheesh.

As you all know I have either party playing the race card. We have seen way too much of it from Obama and his side of the isle.

I have always respected Herman Cain and so I hate this even more coming from him. He needs to let this go including the thing he has toward Gov. Rick Pery about the rock. But so far Cain is using both of these things and not giving up.

Just like the video I posted of Allen West and how he reacted. I wish Cain had done the same thing and taken the high road. The evidence is there that the whole rock thing was taken care of and why Cain has decided to ignore the truth is very troubling.

Sarah Palin Says She Will Not Run For President

Sarah Palin joined Greta Van Susteren last night on Greta's show on FOX to explain her decision to not run for President of the United States. The conservative governor told Greta,

“I can be more effective in a decisive role to get others elected” including a Republican President, Republican Senators and Republican members of the US House of Representatives. Sarah said she knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was the right decision.

October 5, 2011 6:20 PM EDT

Sarah Palin confirmed in a letter to supporters she will not run for President in 2012, saying at this time she can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other Conservatives to office.

Below is a copy of Palin's letter:

October 5, 2011 Wasilla, Alaska After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.

My decision is based upon a review of what common sense Conservatives and Independents have accomplished, especially over the last year. I believe that at this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office – from the nation’s governors to Congressional seats and the Presidency. We need to continue to actively and aggressively help those who will stop the “fundamental transformation” of our nation and instead seek the restoration of our greatness, our goodness and our constitutional republic based on the rule of law.

From the bottom of my heart I thank those who have supported me and defended my record throughout the years, and encouraged me to run for President. Know that by working together we can bring this country back – and as I’ve always said, one doesn’t need a title to help do it.

I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets, including in the race for President where our candidates must embrace immediate action toward energy independence through domestic resource developments of conventional energy sources, along with renewables. We must reduce tax burdens and onerous regulations that kill American industry, and our candidates must always push to minimize government to strengthen the economy and allow the private sector to create jobs.

Those will be our priorities so Americans can be confident that a smaller, smarter government that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people can better serve this most exceptional nation.

In the coming weeks I will help coordinate strategies to assist in replacing the President, re-taking the Senate, and maintaining the House.

Thank you again for all your support. Let’s unite to restore this country!

God bless America.

– Sarah Palin

“Sarah Palin is a good friend, a great American and a true patriot. I respect her decision and know she will continue to be a strong voice for conservative values and needed change in Washington.”


Reactions from her Fans:

Conservatives4SarahPalin blog

Dozens of commenters on, an online hub for Palin supporters, reacted angrily to the news of her decision.

Many of the commenters expressed outrage that Palin had declined to run after months, if not years, of speculation. “To the people who said they knew Sarah Palin wasn’t running,” wrote commenter Jarred113, “You we’re right. She played everybody for the money. Goodbye, cruel world.”

“It’s as simple as this: Sarah Palin is NOT who most of us thought she was,” a commenter called Jules wrote. “She is nothing but a politician that cashed in on her supporters for 3 years to get rich and famous.”

A commenter named Dave Kawaski wrote that he had “never felt so betrayed in my life.” Jeffjackie said he felt “absolutely betrayed.”

“We all look like dupes now to the Palin haters,” he continued.


Wild Thing's comment......

I feel badly for those that have been waiting such a long time for Sarah to make a decision. Many reacted with anger and others were just very sad and upset.

I do wish her well and God bless her and her family.

Allen West to Samuel Jackson: Stick to Movies, Not Politics, After Racist Jab at Tea Party

Jackson took a swipe at the tea party saying their opposition to the President pretty much comes down to race. West responds on Fox News

Actor Samuel L. Jackson echoed fellow film star Morgan Freeman in calling the tea party racist this week. Florida GOP Rep. Allen West, a card-carrying member of the tea party who is black, took issue with the comments.

“I think Samuel Jackson needs to pay more attention to the upcoming release of the movie ‘Avengers’ next summer and not [get] concerned with the politics and policies of the failed administration,” West told Fox News Wednesday.

Jackson, discussing the tea party, told New York magazine, “I think everything right now is geared toward getting that guy out of office, whatever that means. It’s not politics. It is not economics. It all boils down to pretty much to race. It is a shame.”

West retorted: “Samuel L. Jackson, I guess, disregards the 16.7 percent unemployment rate in the black community, a 20 percent unemployment rate for black adult males and a 45-46 percent unemployment rate for black teenagers. I think the racism that he is talking about is coming out of the White House and this administration.”

Wild Thing's comment........

Allen West is wonderful!! Thank you to West for speaking up about this. And he is right too. Samuel Jackson and Morgan Freeman are both excellent actors, but they need to get back to acting.

Years ago the major studios would sign a star and the star ( celeb) was never allowed to do anything like we have been seeing. The studios actually were controlling their stars but for a good reason. They knew if some of them spoke out like these men have done and Sean Penn etc. the films they did might not get good attendence and it would hurt the studio as well. Then Independent studios became popular and the whole watching over the stars actions etc. was gone.

‘Darn Tooting!’ Obama Brags About HHS Reg Catholic Bishops Call Attack on Liberty

‘Darn Tooting!’ Obama Brags About HHS Reg Catholic Bishops Call Attack on Liberty


Bantering with the audience at a fundraiser in St. Louis yesterday, President Barack Obama bragged about a new regulation, proposed by the Department of Health and Human Services, that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has denounced as an “unprecedented attack on religious liberty.”

“Darn right!” an audience member at the fundraiser shouted as Obama described the regulation.

“Darn tooting!” Obama said back.

The proposed regulation, designed to implement part of Obamacare, will require all private health plans in the United States to cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives — including those that cause abortions — without charging any fees or co-pay. These regulations were drawn to implement a provision in Obama’s health-care law that calls for all health-care plans to cover “preventive services.”

Combined with Obamacare’s mandate that all individuals must buy health insurance, the “preventive services” regulation would require all American Catholics to buy health care plans that pay for sterilizations, contraceptives and abortions — all of which violate Catholic moral teaching.

A “religious exemption” in the regulation is so narrowly drawn that it does not include any lay Catholics, or any Catholic hospitals, charitable organizations, or colleges or universities. Thus, many major Catholic institutions in the United States would be forced to choose between dropping health insurance coverage for their employees and students or violating the moral teachings of their own church.

In comments on the regulation submitted to HHS last month, the Catholic bishops called for the regulation to be “rescinded in its entirety” and described the proposal as “government coercion of religious people.”

Muslim Lawsuit, Response Rile Ohio Pork Industry ~If you can’t do the Ham, Stay out of the Slam!

Muslim Lawsuit, Response Rile Ohio Pork Industry

Ohio's response to Muslim lawsuit over prison meal preparation riles state pork industry

Ohio The Morning Call

A decision by Ohio officials to remove all pork products from prison menus in response to a lawsuit by Muslim inmates is not sitting well with the state’s pork producers and processors.

Both promise action of their own, including a possible counter lawsuit, to address what they consider an unfair and illogical decision.

“We really think it’s not in the best interest, frankly, of the whole prison system,” said Dick Isler, executive director of the Ohio Pork Producers Council. “It seems like we’re letting a small group make the rules when it really isn’t in the best interest of the rest of prisoners.”

Pork is inexpensive and nutritious and compares well to other lean meats, he said.

Ironically, the inmates’ lawsuit doesn’t involve pork at all; it demands that non-pork meats like beef come from animals slaughtered according to Islamic law. But the prisons system responded by simply removing pork as an option altogether.

If Ohio would provide Muslim inmates with pre-packaged meals similar to those given to Jewish inmates, as the lawsuit requests, it wouldn’t be necessary to remove pork from menus, said David Singleton, executive director of the Ohio Justice and Policy Center, which is suing on behalf of the two inmates.

In a federal lawsuit, death row inmate Abdul Awkal complains that the state is restraining his religious freedoms by not providing meals prepared according to Islamic law, known as halal, while at the same time supplying Jewish prisoners with kosher meals.

Awkal, joined by a second inmate not on death row, says the vegetarian and non-pork options aren’t good enough. The inmates say food must be prepared in specific fashion, such as ensuring that an animal is butchered by slitting its throat and draining its blood, to conform to Islamic beliefs.

Prison guidelines for Muslim inmates already provided that meals will be “free of all pork and products containing or derived from pork.”

A judge has given lawyers and inmates for the state until next month to finish filing documents bolstering their arguments, ahead of an expected January trial.

Ohio says requiring halal meals could mean new dietary plans for as many as 2,000 inmates, while Awkal’s lawyers believe the figure is lower because not all Muslims eat halal meals.

Awkal, 52, is scheduled to die in June for killing his estranged wife, Latife Awkal, and brother-in-law Mahmoud Abdul-Aziz in 1992, in a room in Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court. Joining Awkal in the lawsuit is Cornelius Causey, 35, serving 15 years to life for murder and aggravated robbery convictions out of Hamilton County.

In court documents, Ohio has argued that it provides both non-pork and vegetarian meals to Muslims and says the courts have sided with this practice. The state also says that providing halal meals could hurt Ohio financially, given the current budget situation.

California provides packaged kosher meals to Jewish inmates and halal meals prepared at prisons for Muslim prisoners.

Texas, which does serve pork to prisoners, offers Muslim inmates regular, meat-free or pork-free meals but not halal meals.

Wild Thing's comment.......

The only group that bugs me demanding certain foods are the Muslims. They are the ones wanting to kill everyone with their Islam beliefs. I do not mind if they have special meals for Jewish people. Jews are not the ones causing death around the world and demanding laws be changed like the Muslims are with their Islam.

Texas First Black Chief Justice Wallace Jefferson Says Ranch Furor an Overreaction

Texas First Black Chief Justice Wallace Jefferson Says Ranch Furor an Overreaction

The Texas Tribune

Wallace Jefferson, the first black chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court, said the hunting ranch name controversy is "much ado about nothing" and argued the implication that Rick Perry is insensitive to matters of race is flatly wrong. Jefferson, who was appointed to the post by Perry, and whose great-great-great-grandfather was a slave owned by a Waco district judge, said the reality is quite the opposite: Perry "appreciates the role diversity plays in our state and nation."

Jefferson said he can recall his first conversation with Perry, in 2001, like it was yesterday. They talked about how Jefferson's father and Perry had both been Air Force officers. Jefferson said Perry shared his view that in all circumstances, merit mattered, not race.

"To imply that the governor condoned either the use of that word or that sentiment, I find false," Jefferson said.

Newt Gingrich Surprises Al Sharpton With Birthday Wish

Gingrich surprises Al Sharpton with birthday wish

The Hill

Al Sharpton got an unlikely surprise birthday greeting Monday from Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

“I figured I would be the least likely phone call you’ll get tonight,” Gingrich said on the phone during Sharpton’s MSNBC show “Politics Nation.”

“Well, you got that right,” Sharpton responded. “So am I to believe that Newt Gingrich, who is the polar opposite of me in politics, called to wish me a happy birthday?”

The former Speaker of the House praised Sharpton for the work they did together on a tour around the country promoting education.

“While we may disagree about 99 things, on that one thing we were so much on the same team that it really was remarkable,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich said he thought Sharpton did a “great deal of good for children” on the tour.

I guess next he will be sitting on a park bench with Sharpton discussing global warming.

Why I Support Rick Perry

Why I Support Rick Perry

By Dr. Melissa Clouthier

Rick Perry will be the next President of the United States if I have anything to do with it.

Who am I? I’m a mom, a doctor, a business owner, a former Michigander, Californian and New Yorker, a conservative with a libertarian streak, a Tea Party attender and reporter, a blogger, an activist, and for 14 years, a Texan.

For the last four plus years, I’ve been howling in dismay at our national political catastrophe. It started under President Bush who I believed was a good man (still do) but possessed of the soft, big government ease driven by noblesse oblige. I didn’t ascribe to “compassionate conservatism” because I believe conservatism to be inherently compassionate and loathed ceding rhetorical ground to leftists who are anything but compassionate.

Unlike many big government Republicans, I believe the government itself, when too big, too unwieldy, is a force for evil. Good intentions cease to matter. The government, like a glioblastoma growing out of control strangles the life out of the brain and then body of the country.

President Obama came into office and shot the system through with estrogen (trillions of money), thus growing the tumor, and squeezing what little life remained out of the patient politic. I’ve been appalled at how quickly it’s happened. How easily. How mercilessly. Heaven help us.

Heaven helps those who help themselves. No savior comes in the guise of American president. Christ will return when he sees fit. Until then, we make do with humans. We filter through the possibilities and decide.

That means eliminating choices. Many of them. A positive choice means leaving others behind. So, I’ll explain why I’m leaving others behind. Some I won’t mention because it’s never going to happen.

Mitt Romney: This. Watch it and you’ll see why I haven’t spent the last years of my life fighting to get a guy like this as our nominee. He is a disaster of a candidate. He has no guiding principles. He’s been very pro-abortion. He’s been, obviously, for Obamacare, the mandate and centralized control of the health care system. He buys into manmade global warming. He was vociferously pro-bailout, aka TARP. He was enthusiastically for the stimulus. He was pro-Amnesty. Yes. He was. Do I need more reasons to be against this man’s candidacy? Do I need to explain why I’m nigh to apoplectic about conservatives elevating people who cannot beat this guy?

Newt Gingrich: I like Newt. He’s smart, articulate, knows the evil media, and he’s innovative. He also lead-footed, ham-handed, has horrible instincts (NY 29, Cap-n-Trade, etc.) and ultimately, his character failings make him a no-go. I would like him somewhere in the government, though. I like his ideas of Six Sigma for government. I like many of his ideas.

Herman Cain: I like Herman. I’ve had the privilege to interview him a couple times–twice formally and once, off the cuff. He’s smart, funny, and accomplished in the private sector. He has never held elected office. This matters to me. He’s a good talker. What is his walk? We don’t know. I would NEVER hire someone as even a receptionist who hadn’t demonstrated that she or he had the skills to do the job. Many of you believe that the private sector is good experience for politics and I’d say being successful in business is a good launching board for politics at the state or even in the House or Senate. The Presidency is something else altogether. To me, it’s the absolute height of arrogance to assume you’ve got what it takes to lead the country when you have never demonstrated even the minimal leadership necessary to run a congressional district. Run for Governor. Prove yourself. I want to see more out of Chris Christie, for heaven’s sake. Why would I be okay with an untested politician like Herman Cain? I wouldn’t.

Now, to why I support Rick Perry:

I live under the light hand of the Texas system–a hand that Governor Perry has done everything in his power to make lighter. He cut the size and scope of government even as the Texas population grew faster than any place in the nation. We started a business here with nothing but a credit card. You know how much money we were making a month when we first moved here fourteen years ago? Two thousand a month. Gross. With a baby. Slowly, surely, we built our business and life here.

When we first got to Texas, my husband worked with doctors who were heavily involved in the Worker’s Comp (work injuries) and Personal Injury (car accidents) system. It was rife with abuse. There were rings of lawyers, doctors, and accident fakers who exploited the system. Governor Perry directly took on the fraud and abuse which meant taking on the trial lawyers association. In one day after the law was passed (my husband had long since gone into practice for himself and had a holistic practice), the shysters lost the whole scam. It was beautiful to behold.

And then, this last year, Governor Perry pushed through “loser pays” on lawsuits. I cannot even tell you how much lawyers in Texas hate Rick Perry. And it’s one reason I love his record. It’s also a reason, they’ll fight tooth and nail against him nationally.

Perry has curbed malpractice judgments. So now, doctors are moving to Texas in droves. The Houston medical center is a haven of medical innovation and bold new treatments. People fly from all over the country to come here for cancer treatment and more. When a family member was diagnosed with cancer, do you know how long it took to get an appointment with the number one specialist in the world? Less than one week. I would shudder to be in Massachusetts suffering under impossibly long doctor wait times.

Rick Perry has fought Barack Obama from day one. I don’t know how many lawsuits have been filed back and forth against the federal government, but I know there’s multiple fights with the EPA, there’s Obamacare, there’s Medicaid, there’s the border, and on and on. Other people talk about fighting President Obama. Governor Perry has gone straight at President Obama’s socialist agenda and tangled with him both rhetorically and in the courts of law.

Governor Perry is taking on the entrenched elites of higher education trying to make education affordable to all people. He has challenged state educators to come up with a $10,000 college education. He wants Professors to teach. And he doesn’t give up on good ideas. Notably, he’s been fighting Karen Hughes and the higher ed cronies who want the status quo because it gives them immense power and riches.

If you’ve watched the debates, you’ve wondered if Governor Perry can give a speech or articulate a point of view. Well, I’ve seen him soar on multiple occasions and in different venues. People hunger for articulate, passionate and ardent speaking. I understand the adoration that people have for Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain. They can breath fire and illuminate at the same time. Rick Perry, on his game, is even better. I’ve seen them all speak multiple times. Governor Perry can instill confidence and hope and lay out ideas with the best of them.

I want our president to know what it’s like to have skin in the game, to be in the military…to sacrifice. Rick Perry was a C-130 air force pilot who finished as Captain. Pilots need to make quick decisions in demanding and death decisions.

Governor Perry is solidly anti-abortion, pro-gun-rights, anti-job killing regulations, pro-capitalist, pro-America, pro-Israel, and for economic expansion. More than being for these things, his professional walk supports these things. He doesn’t just talk or evangelize (though he does both), his record supports these principles.

I believe that Governor Perry can bring the success that his administration facilitated in Texas to America. The Obama-Keynesian experiment has been an abject failure. What’s the alternative? A mushy Mitt Romneyesque big government Republicanism that expands the power of the government just at a slower rate? A rhetorical flourish from a businessman with no legislative experience?

Oh, hell no.

We need experience. We need principles. We need a very human and a very capable Rick Perry.

Finally, a word to those are wilt before the press’ and left’s demonizing of one of our own. Stand up! For heaven’s sake. Hold your ground and be principled. I can assure you that even mealy mouthed Mitt will be minced meat before the press gets done with him. Look at the video above. That’s what will be the fodder for Obama’s campaign videos.

Even worse, turning to a novice when experience is needed seems to be the height of folly considering where and why America is where she is at now.

Governor Perry needs to do a better job of making his case. But he DOES have a case and a good one. Conservatives dismantling him are working very hard on giving us Mitt Romney as the Republican nominee. I find that unconscionable.

The country is in too bad of shape to be swept away by superficialities. Look at the candidate’s record. At this juncture, he must have one.

For those who are cynical and believe that none of this really matters, I beg to differ. I lived in California in the late 80s during the first housing bust. I lived in Michigan during its slow decline as it went back to seed due to unsustainable union demands and abject Democrat corruption in the big cities like Detroit and Flint. I lived in upstate New York and watch the life blood — IBM, Xerox, and on and on — leave the state because businesses could no longer afford to do business there.

I know a liberal when I see one. I know a conservative when I see one.

Rick Perry is a conservative. He has been willing to veto his own party when they head down a big government road. He has done it over and over again. That takes spine. And it has been something sorely lacking in both of the last two Presidents.

So, I’m asking you to give Governor Perry another look. He’s been in public service a long time and stuck to his principles and managed to govern one of the biggest states in the nation. But the policies aren’t some pie-in-the-sky distant thing. They affect lives. They have affected my life for fourteen years. And while there have been times I’ve been irritated with the Governor, most of the time, I’ve had the luxury of not paying attention to what he’s doing because he’s been doing it right.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a President who you didn’t have to worry was ruining the country every single minute? It’s a low bar, to be sure, but it’s seemed unreachable for years now. I’d like that to change.

CBS Reporter Sharyl Attkisson Says White House Official “Literally Screamed and Cussed at Me” for Story Exposing Eric Holder on “Fast and Furious” Scandal

CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson has been doggedly covering the ATF and DOJ scandal surrounding the gunwalking “Fast and Furious” case. And now she’s coming out with more details about her attempts to get information from the DOJ and the White House regarding the case.

On Laura Ingraham’s radio show Tuesday, Attkisson said she was “screamed” and “cussed” at by the White House while trying to get information last Friday, and that a DOJ spokesperson “yelled” at her while she was trying to get clarification on the case. And she named names.

Ingraham: So they were literally screaming at you?

Attkisson: Yes. Well the DOJ woman was just yelling at me. The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me.

Ingraham: Who was the person? Who was the person at Justice screaming?

Attkisson: Eric Schultz Oh, the person screaming was [DOJ spokeswoman] Tracy Schmaler, she was yelling not screaming. And

Wild Thing's comment......

I would bet that a lot of people around Obama get yelled at. He does not seem to be a stable person at all. His whines and bully attitude have been directed at all of America so he might be even worse behind closed doors, just a guess.

Poll: 7 In 10 Say Obama Has Not Helped Economy ~ He Is Doing All He Can To Destroy Business Large and Small

Poll: 7 in 10 say Obama has not helped economy

CBS NEWS......Political Hot Sheet

A new CBS News poll finds that nearly seven in 10 Americans believe President Obama has not made real progress in fixing the economy.

Sixty-nine percent say the president has not made real progress on the economy, which voters overwhelmingly cite as their most important issue. Twenty-five percent say he has made real progress.

Perceptions are not improving. The percentage who said Mr. Obama has made real progress has dropped 10 points from a survey 13 months ago, when 35 percent said he had made real progress.

Just 35 percent of Americans approve of Mr. Obama’s handling of the economy, and his approval rating on the issue has been below 40 percent since February. Fifty-three percent approve of his handling of the economy.

2 More Top Aides Flee Michele Bachmann Campaign

2 Top Aides Flee Bachmann Campaign


We’ll avoid referencing the Titanic here. Two more top aides fled Republican candidate Michele Bachmann’s campaign team Monday. Pollster Ed Goeas and senior adviser Andy Parrish are the latest to depart, suggesting that Bachmann’s dreams of winning the GOP nomination may be coming to an end. The source of the news was an anonymous adviser.

The two aides join Bachmann’s former campaign manager Ed Rollins, who quit last month. Bachmann has recently been fading in polls and campaign funds.

Bachmann's standing in the race suffered when Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced his candidacy. She fell further in opinion polls after suggesting an unproven link between vaccines and mental retardation while trying to criticize Perry's executive order requiring young girls to get immunized for the human papillomavirus, a sexually spread virus that can cause cervical cancer.

Wild Thing's comment......

I am not surprised to see people leaving her campaign.

She still has never proven who the woman was that she "talked" to that night after the debate. And the interesting thing too is that the ghost woman has never come forward. It is all too obvious it is an all out lie Michele came up with.

She became emotional and obsessive about Perry, even screaching ( which Sarah does too and I can't stand that ) and showed big time she is not suited in dealing with high stress situations like world leaders . She would not be able to speak rationally, calmly and professionally to world leaders.

Perry Has Appointed More Minorities Than Any Governor In Texas History

Perry Has Appointed More Minorities Than Any Governor In Texas History

Texas Tribune

Even some of Perry’s fiercest Texas critics say they do not believe he is racist. They point to his record of appointments as evidence: He appointed the state’s first African-American state supreme court justice, Wallace Jefferson, and later made him chief justice. (Jefferson’s great grandfather was a slave, “sold like a horse,” Perry once said with disgust.) Perry’s former general counsel and former chief of staff, Brian Newby, is black; so is Albert Hawkins, the former Health and Human Services Commissioner who Perry handpicked to lead the massive agency in 2002.

“He doesn’t have a racist bone in his body,” said former Democratic state Rep. Ron Wilson, who is black and served with Perry in his early years in the Legislature. “He didn’t then, and he doesn’t now.”

Added Dallas Democratic Sen. Royce West, who is also black: “I don’t agree with him on policy issues, but you can point to many things he has done that were sensitive to ethnic minorities.”

Indeed, in his 11-year gubernatorial tenure, Perry has appointed more minorities to statewide posts — including university regents and secretaries of state — than any governor in Texas history.

“Texans need to see that no matter where you come from, the color of your skin or the sound of your last name, that if you are willing to work hard and play by the rules you can become anything you want in this state,” Perry said in a 2010 interview with The Dallas Examiner.


Wild Thing's comment........

Gov. Rick Perry has the conservative goods, and the record to prove them and the screaming match leveled at him will become suspect, only after we finish courting candidates without the goods whose rise is based only on how well they throw rocks at Rick Perry. The proof that conservatism is alive and actually on duty is in only one candidate whose got the record to prove it. Rick’s got it and they want it. Overeach and the fiction flacking with half truths will eventually meet its Waterloo. Voters catch on to the killing field over time.

Documents Suggest Obama's Eric Holder Knew About 'Fast and Furious' Earlier Than He Claimed

Here is the story for Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder from CBS News.The report by Sharyl Atkisson shows that Holder did not tell the truth to Congress in May of this year when he said he had heard of the disastrous “Fast and Furious” illegal gun-running program only a few weeks earlier. But Department of Justice documents, the report says, show that Holder received regular briefings on the operation going all the way back to July 5, 2010!

Holder is now reportedly saying he “misunderstood” the question from Congress!


Fox News breaking news report on the evidence that Attorney General Eric Holder did not tell the truth in his testimony before Congress.

Documents Suggest Holder Knew About 'Fast and Furious' Earlier Than He Claimed

FOX News

For the first time, documents appear to show Attorney General Eric Holder was made aware of the Operation Fast and Furious earlier than he claimed -- up to 9 nine months earlier.

The documents seem to contradict what Holder told a House Judiciary Committee on May 3, when he said he could not recall the exact date, but he'd "probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks."

However, in a July 2010 memo, Michael Walther, director of the National Drug Intelligence Center, told Holder straw buyers in the Operation Fast and Furious case "are responsible for the purchase of 1,500 firearms that were then supplied to the Mexican drug trafficking cartels."

Also, on October 18, 2010, one of Holder's chief deputies, Lanny Breuer, chief of the department's Criminal Division, told Holder in a memo that prosecutors were ready to issue indictments in Operation Fast and Furious.

Documents also show, contrary to earlier reports, the Justice Department was aware that ATF agents under the department's direction were involved in the controversial practice known as "gun walking" -- allowing illicit gun sales to proceed to track the traffickers to higher-ups. The department has said it did not allow guns to "walk."

When agents "let guns walk," they stop surveillance and allow criminals to transfer weapons to others. In this case, that meant allowing the guns to cross the border into Mexico. It is a highly controversial practice agents typically are taught not to do.

However, in an October 17, 2010 memo, Deputy Attorney General Jason Weinstein asks another attorney in the Criminal Division if Breuer should do a press conference when Fast and Furious is announced, but says, "It's a tricky case, given the number of guns that have walked."

Until now, there's been an attempt to portray Operation Fast and Furious as a rogue operation by ATF agents in Phoenix and the Arizona U.S. Attorney's Office. But insiders claim these documents show the Department of Justice in Washington was intimately aware of the case almost from the beginning.

In response to the documents released today, the Justice Department said Holder’s response referred to when he first learned of the “troubling tactics” of the program. A Justice spokesperson also says that the “gun walking” referred to in the October 2010 email exchange is about another case initiated before Operation Fast and Furious.

Candidate Obama Appeared And Marched With New Black Panther Party in 2007


Candidate Obama Appeared And Marched With New Black Panther Party in 2007

by Andrew Breitbart

Big Government

New photographs obtained exclusively by reveal that Barack Obama appeared and marched with members of the New Black Panther Party as he campaigned for president in Selma, Alabama in March 2007.

The photographs, captured from a Flickr photo-sharing account before it was scrubbed, are the latest evidence of the mainstream media’s failure to examine Obama’s extremist ties and radical roots.

In addition, the new images raise questions about the possible motives of the Obama administration in its infamous decision to drop the prosecution of the Panthers for voter intimidation.

The images, presented below, also renew doubts about the transparency of the White House’s guest logs–in particular, whether Panther National Chief Malik Zulu Shabazz is the same “Malik Shabazz” listed among the Obama administration’s early visitors.

Tomorrow, J. Christian Adams, the Department of Justice whistleblower in the New Black Panther Party case, will release his new book, Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department (Regnery).

The book exposes Obama administration corruption far beyond the Panther dismissal, and reveals how the institutional Left has turned the power of the DOJ into an ideological weapon.

Adams’s book also describes, in detail, the Selma march at which then-Senator Obama was joined by a group of Panthers who had come to support his candidacy.

Among those appearing with Obama was Shabazz, the Panther leader who was one of the defendants in the voter intimidation case that Attorney General Eric Holder dismissed. Also present was the Panthers’ “Minister of War,” Najee Muhammed, who had called for murdering Dekalb County, Georgia, police officers with AK-47’s and then mocking their widows.

The book "Injustice" includes a disturbing photo of Shabazz and the Panthers marching behind Obama with raised fists in the “Black Power” salute.

There are even more photographs.

I have learned that Regnery initially received approval from a person who took pictures of the events in Selma to publish these additional photographs in Injustice.

After the photographer wrote Regnery reversing his permission to include the photographs in Injustice, the images were removed from the photographer’s Flickr account. Yet we were able to capture them before they disappeared.

The photographs show Obama sharing the same podium at the event with the Panthers.

Had any of Obama’s opponents appeared at an event with the KKK or Aryan Nation, The New York Times would have had to double its ink buy.

Obama’s appearance does much more than expose mainstream media hypocrisy. It also exposes an association between a vile racist organization and a future President of the United States. Only the degree of association is subject to debate.

Obama is the first president that is being vetted AFTER he has been president. I hope his voters are paying more attention this time.

Florida Republican Leader Paul Senft Endorses Governor Perry for President

Florida Republican Leader Paul Senft Endorses Governor Perry for President

Texas Gov. Rick Perry today received the personal endorsement of Florida National Committeeman Paul Senft in his campaign for president.

“I’m proud to endorse Gov. Perry for president – he has been leading Texas to more job creation, while President Obama has failed to lead on anything,” said Senft. “Gov. Perry’s proven record of job creation is the best of any candidate in the field, and as a man of faith he is the strong, principled leader this party and our nation need. He will be an excellent Commander-in-Chief and respect the 10th Amendment to make Washington less intrusive in state government and less consequential in our daily lives so that our country can thrive and prosper as we rebuild our global pride and respect.”

Paul Senft is a long time GOP activist from Haines City in Polk County and has served as Florida’s National Committeeman since 2004. He is also an RNC Executive Committee Member, and previously served as the State Committeeman and Chairman for the Polk County Republican Executive Committee.

“Paul Senft has been a powerful force in advancing the values and priorities of the Republican Party in Florida, and I am honored to have his endorsement,” said Gov. Rick Perry. “I look forward to his partnership in this campaign as I travel the nation sharing my vision to restore our economy and get America working again.”

Gov. Perry Stands With Gibson Guitars

Perry Stands With Gibson

During a campaign stop in Memphis this week, Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry adeptly played to the rhetoric of unrest reverberating around Tennessee and beyond as a result of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s raid on Gibson Guitars.

Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, himself a critic of the Gibson raid and one of Tennessee’s highest profile Perry supporters, introduced the Texas governor during a lunchtime fundraiser at the Memphis Botanical Gardens.

Before striding to the mic, Perry took a quick detour over to the guitar player in the corner of the room.

“Let me come over here and make sure … yes, that’s what I thought that was. God bless you, that is a Gibson guitar!” Perry announced to the audience, which included local business leaders and GOP state lawmakers Rep. Mark White and Sen. Brian Kelsey.

“And you tell the government, ‘Keep your hands off of my Gibson!’,” Perry exhorted the musician.

That chop at the federal government over the Gibson raids in Nashville and Memphis was the latest in a chorus of opposition that’s grown in intensity ever since federal agents investigating whether the company illegally imported wood temporarily shut down the facilities. The government seized wood, electronic files and guitars.

A “We Stand With Gibson” rally, sponsored by several dozen Tea Party and Republican groups, is scheduled in Nashville at the Scoreboard Restaurant on Oct. 8 from 2-4 p.m. Speakers slated to appear include Gibson CEO Henry Juszkiewicz, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn and talk radio hosts Steve Gill, Phil Valentine and Mark Skoda.

Musicians are also increasingly speaking out about the issue.

In a video posted to Gibson’s “This Will Not Stand” website, Sully Erna – a member of the heavy metal band Godsmack – said “I believe in their innocence, and I stand by them 100 percent as they fight to protect their rights.”

Country legend Charlie Daniels riffed and railed on the Gibson raids for the Facebook faithful.

“When I went to Iraq the first time, I saw a great need for recreational musical instruments as a lot of the troops played, to one degree or another, but just didn’t have instruments to help while away the lonely off duty hours,” Daniels wrote. “When I got back stateside I started something we called Operation Heartstrings in an effort to provide instruments and strings to our men and women serving so far away from home. The first call I made was to Henry Juszkiewicz, the owner of the Gibson Guitar Company who, without hesitation, donated one hundred Gibson guitars and a gross or so of strings to the project.”

Wondered Daniels, “Is this what America has come to, that the resources of the United States government can be used to settle political scores by a petulant president and a totally out of control Justice Department?”


.....Thank you BobF, for sending this to me.

1973 - 1999

Charlie Daniels did a good piece on how Gibson is being persecuted by the current administration for what he suspects is their support of Republicans. He also mentions how Gibson gave guitars and strings to Operation Heartstrings to provide instruments to our troops overseas.

Charlie Daniles Note at his Facebook page

And if you are on oFacebook HERE IS Charlie Daniels facebook page

When I went to Iraq the first time I saw a great need for recreational musical instruments as a lot of the troops played, to one degree or another, but just didn't have instruments to help while away the lonely off duty hours.

When I got back stateside I started something we called Operation Heartstrings in an effort to provide instruments, and strings to our men and women serving so far away from home.

The first call I made was to Henry Juszkiewicz, the owner of the Gibson Guitar Company who, without hesitation, donated one hundred Gibson guitars and a gross or so of strings to the project.

Henry is good American and businessman who makes a quality product and exports it to the world, providing a lot of American jobs in the process.

On August 24, agents from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Homeland Security executed a raid on the corporate headquarters and two of the factories of the Gibson Guitar Company in Nashville, TN.

They confiscated 24 pallets of Indian rosewood, some finished guitars and some of the company's computer files, claiming that Gibson had illegally imported the wood used to make fretboards and bridges on their guitars.

A little known - and recently amended - piece of legislation called the Lacey Act contends that American companies have to operate according to the laws of the country exporting the wood.

The feds contend that if the fretboards had been finished in India and imported that way there would be no problem, but that when imported in the raw form and finished by American workers it is illegal.

And here's the sickening thing, the complaint did not originate with the Indian government. They are perfectly happy to export the unfinished fretboards.

The deputy director general of foreign trade for India even stated in a letter in July of this year that rosewood ebony from India was freely exportable but the feds seem to want to use their own interpretation of the law to harass Gibson.

And I do mean harass.

Why not the other guitar companies who import and use the same wood, why single out Gibson?

Could it be that Henry Juszkiewicz has been known to support Republican candidates while at least one other major guitar manufacturer supports Democrats?

Is this what America has come to, that the resources of the United States government can be used to settle political scores by a petulant president and a totally out of control Justice Department?

Is there not anything more pressing and more dangerous to America than persecuting an old and honorable American company that provides much-needed jobs in a job-hungry economy?

No matter what he says, Obama has a careless disregard for American jobs, especially if they're not unionized.

If the Homeland Security Department needs something to do they could provide some much needed help on the Arizona border.

This is disgusting.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, and for our country.

God Bless America

Herman Cain Plays The Race Card

This is where it began....................


Maybe Stephanie McCrummen Just Likes Using the N Word

Red State Blog

This is perhaps the most bizarre attack on Rick Perry to come so far.

Hugh Hewtitt has a very good take down of it. It shows the extent to which the Democrats will go to attack Republicans. Stephanie McCrummen, a Washington Post based reporter formerly stationed in Nairobi has a history of fanning racial flames out of context.

In a move that was genuinely supported by people of all races in North Carolina, McCrummen earlier this year tried to paint tea party backed school board members as racist for restructuring a school busing program in the Raleigh area. Again, there were a large number of black residents supportive of the measure, but McCrummen’s reporting failed to get into that.

Now, she’s out with a story about Rick Perry and his dad using a hunting camp with a big rock on it that has the word “Ni**erhead” on it. Rick Perry’s father painted over the rock. At some point, they turned the rock over so it couldn’t be seen.

The Washington Post story makes clear that Perry didn’t like it, that his dad painted over it, that they weren’t responsible for it, and that all seven people who who saw it remember it in the 80′s, might have seen it in 2008 (but really are not sure), and did not associate it with either Rick Perry or his father.

As Hugh Hewitt notes:

Many, many people were interviewed for the story. Only seven recall seeing the rock, and not one of them connect Rick Perry to it, nor do any of the people –either from among these seven or who knows how many more were contacted for the piece– tie Rick Perry to offensive comments, language or actions. Though a lot of space is devoted to this story, no detailed reporting on what the seven saw and when they saw it is included, which allows for incredible supposition about the ambiguity to take root. Thus a story that could have major implications for the presidential campaign in 2012 is built on anonymous sources whose stories aren’t even detailed.

It is a drive-by slander

It also seems to be a slander Herman Cain is picking up and running with as a way to get into second place.

But Stephanie McCrummen gets to use the word ni**ger 8 times in the story and connect it to Rick Perry.

Rick Perry disputes Washington Post story on slur


"A number of claims made in the story are incorrect, inconsistent, and anonymous, including the implication that Rick Perry brought groups to the lease when the word on the rock was still visible. The one consistent fact in the story is that the word on a rock was painted over and obscured many years ago.

"Governor Perry and his family never owned, controlled or managed the property referenced in the Washington Post story. The 42,000-acre ranch is owned by the Hendricks Home for Children, a West Texas charity.

"Perry’s father painted over offensive language on a rock soon after leasing the 1,000-acre parcel in the early 1980s. When Governor Perry was party to the hunting lease from 1997 to 2007, the property was described as northern pasture. He has not been to the property since 2006.

Herman Cain was asked about this on Sunday morning show " This Week".....His response is what is a big disappointment and because he chose to use the race card in his reply now Al Sharpton has made a statement that Perry should step down as a candidate. ~ Wild Thing

Perry family quickly removed offensive name from camp, campaign says

Miami Herald

Rick Perry's presidential campaign said Sunday that his family moved quickly when they found they that the Texas hunting camp they leases was named "Niggerhead," and painted over the word on a rock next to the camp entrance.

The rapid response from the Texas governor's campaign, to a newspaper report Sunday about the camp name and to criticism from his one African-American rival, was an attempt to stem any political fallout for a candidate who has struggled to regain his footing since a weak debate in Florida and a surprise loss in a straw poll there.

The Washington Post reported Sunday that Perry's family leased the Texas land starting in 1983.

The newspaper reported that Perry said his father painted over the word in the early 1980s, and that it was eventually turned over to further ensure the word couldn't be seen. But the newspaper also reported that some other visitors recalled seeing it displayed after the early 1980s.

One of Perry's Republican opponents, , businessman Herman Cain, called the use of the name troubling.

"That is very insensitive. And since Gov. Perry has been going there for years to hunt, I think that it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place," Cain said on ABC's "This Week."

"Yes, it was painted over," Cain said. "But how long ago was it painted over? So I'm still saying that it is a sign of insensitivity."

Cain defeated Perry by a 2-to-1 ratio in the straw poll of Florida Republicans, a surprise setback that punctuated Perry's poor debate performances. A new Fox News poll shows former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney with the support of 23 percent of Republican voters, Perry with 19 percent and Cain with 17 percent.

Ray Sullivan, Perry's campaign communications director, issued a statement soon after Cain was asked about the camp on both the ABC and Fox morning programs.

"Mr. Cain is wrong about the Perry family's quick action to eliminate the word on the rock, but is right the word written by others long ago is insensitive and offensive. That is why the Perrys took quick action to cover and obscure it," Sullivan said.

"As Gov. Perry told the Washington Post, 'The old name has its origins from another time and era when unfortunately, offensive language was used to name some land formations around the country. When my dad joined the lease in 1983, he soon painted over the offensive word. It is my understanding that the rock was also turned over to further obscure what was originally written on it.'"

Sullivan went on to stress that Perry has appointed African-Americans to several Texas posts, including chief justice of the state supreme court and his own chief of staff.

In another statement Sunday, Sullivan disputed the Post report that the word was still visibly displayed on occasions when Perry took guests on hunting trips to the leased land.

"A number of claims made in the story are incorrect, inconsistent, and anonymous, including the implication that Rick Perry brought groups to the lease when the word on the rock was still visible," Sullivan said.

"The one consistent fact in the story is that the word on a rock was painted over and obscured many years ago," Sullivan said.

The land near his boyhood home of Paint Creek, Texas, is owned by the Hendricks Home for Children, a charitable group.


Wild Thing's comment........

Perry is resurging and our leftist MSM is busily digging up whatever dirt it can find and then Cain plays into it.

Cain did not have to play the race card on this, he could have taken the high road and he did not. This is campaign season and every interview counts, why else did they make such a big thing about Perry saying that about not having a heart. They crucified him for that.

Cain would have looked much better if he had said it had been taken care of end of story.

And this from the Chicago Tribune:
When asked last week about the name, which is now painted over, Perry said the word on the rock was an "offensive name that has no place in the modern world," the Post said.

Perry told the paper that his father painted over the name on the rock in 1983 or 1984, shortly after his family first leased the property. "Ever since, any time I ever saw the rock it was painted over," Perry said.

“Cain said the former name for the camp was “a more vile, negative word than the n-word, and for him to leave there as long as he did before I hear that they finally painted over, it is just plain insensitive to a lot of black people.”

Herman Cain's Communications Director Resigns

FOX News

Herman Cain's campaign communications director has announced her resignation, Fox News confirms.

Ellen Carmichael, who has spent over a year working for Cain, said that her departure is a personal decision about her career.

"I think my leaving now is a reflection on my earnestness to leave rather than a reflection of the campaign," she said.

"I'm still very fond of him," said Carmichael, adding that there is no tension or disagreement over the departure.

"I'm honored to have worked for someone with such character and decency," said Carmichael.

Following the news of her departure Cain's campaign issued the following statement, "Ms. Carmichael decided to pursue other opportunities. We appreciate her service to the campaign."

Her departure comes just as a recent Fox News poll shows Cain jumping into the top tier of GOP presidential candidates.

Carmichael's assistant Francis Boustany is also leaving, and J.D. Gordon will take over as campaign spokesman.


Here is something below I need to show you all on a need to know...... because Obama and the left know about this and it could show up in anti-Cain ads in the future or he may even be asked about it on the political talk shows. ~ Wild Thing

A Real Reason To Be Mad At Herman Cain

Atlanta Post

......A business scandal that so closely mirrors the travesty at Enron....

“Herman Cain’s Enron-esque Disaster: The Story the GOP presidential candidate won’t tell you about his years in corporate America.”

According to a massive class action lawsuit against Aquila’s board of directors – including Cain – he allegedly steered employees into heavily investing their retirement savings in company stock, while at the same time shifting their business model from straightforward energy generation to risky energy trading – the kind of corporate greed that infamously brought down Enron. In the suit, it claims that Cain and other top officials violated a 37-year-old federal law that requires employers to responsibly manage the retirement programs for their employees. Their pensions and life savings were lost.

Unfortunately or on purpose, "scrubbed from Cain’s official story is his long tenure as a director at a Midwest energy corporation named Aquila that, like the infamous Enron Corporation, recklessly drove into the wild west of energy trading and speculation – and ultimately screwed its employees out of tens of millions of dollars,”

This Documnet is a PDF and it is the SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT


Wild Thing's comment......

This about Cain and Aquila is information that needs to be known, the left sure as heck knows this information and they have already been posting about it. I would even feel better about Cain if he had been honest and put this information at his website, facts and nothing more. But the truth all the same. That bothers me more that what happened and it being like ENRON. Just be honest with us, and no surprises. Why hide it, that is not right.

Perry's life is an open book for all to know about his decisions good or bad and it is left up to us to decide.

Michael Savage Interviews Texas Gov. Rick Perry on 10th Amendment ~ PART TWO

April 2009

Texas Governor Rick Perry is furious that Texas is losing its sovereignty, because of the Stimulus Bill, and so he is striking back with strongly worded statements about how much he hates the feds.

Rick Perry is just mad as hell about how he is being forced to spend billions of dollar in federal stimulus money in ways the federal government demands.

So he joined some state legislators in supporting a Texas House bill affirming Texas' sovereignty under the 10th Amendment.

Chris Christie and Obama More Alike Than They Appear

The Fat Guy and the Skinny Guy: More Alike Than They Appear

By James V Capua

American Thinker

For all their contrasting looks, Chris Christie and Barack Obama are alike in one critical respect: both are the kind of politician endangered elites offer up when they correctly perceive their power threatened. To preserve their dominance, establishments seek above all to protect the orthodoxies they have enshrined and the trends they have fostered. By doing so, they maintain the interests of those they depend upon critically for support, and they limit the damage that challengers can cause. This stasis is sold by wrapping it artfully in the bright colors and shimmering bows of novelty.

Barack Obama has been a perfect example. He looked different, but his Hope and Change never challenged an elite orthodoxy. For all his wife's assurances that our lives "as usual" were over, Obama presumed to place himself at the front of Democrat-approved social and cultural trends, all the while never challenging one. He dutifully followed the rules of Democrat discourse: he regularly called out "Wall Street" and "special interests," but his friends at Goldman Sachs, the Green lobby, GE, NEA, SEIU, AARP, AFSCME, AFL-CIO, etc. understood the game and knew they had nothing to fear.

Even as he has become unhinged of late, Obama has restricted his petulant flailing to relatively low-risk targets like the leeches of the Congressional Black Caucus, who have to take it because they have nowhere else to go. He and Chu and Geithner and Summers are brilliant -- but Pelosi and Reid were allowed to run the business.

Obama's eloquence, of course, has been celebrated extravagantly -- particularly by a chorus of what the Brits accurately used to call "news readers," who don't even write their own commonplaces and who would not recognize a memorable phrase if it bit them. Nevertheless, the language that counts in the Obama administration has been that of legislators like Frank, Dodd, and Schumer, and regulators like Warren and Lee.

What does all this have to do with the governor of New Jersey? Like the originals, each of the Abama and Christello 2012 team looks very different from the other, but their shtick is the same. The advocates for Christie are selling him in exactly the same way Obama's did, and for exactly the same reason -- Obama did not, and Christie does not, threaten their respective party orthodoxies, and both promise a comfortable working relationship with party elites.

While, like Obama's before 2008, the Christie balloon has been inflating for some time, the excuse for his current prominence was a talk he gave recently at the Reagan Library. While one could take exception to certain assumptions and emphases, there is nothing wrong with this speech. But like with every speech of Obama's, there is also nothing remarkable about it -- not one phrase, not one image that rises above current Republican convention. Unite us rather than divide us; "when there is a problem you fix it"; we are all in this together; demand sacrifice from all; a healthy American economy reinforces our influence abroad; and, of course, "leadership is compromise."

In this year of infinite promise, why is this banal utterance celebrated in Republican circles? It's safe. In his California oration, Christie waddled as fast as he could to get in front of trends conventional Republicans endorse: the contest in 2012 needs to be all about the economy and jobs and efficiency -- just fix the GDP, and Americans' faith in who and what we are will miraculously follow. Christie never threatened to get anywhere near some of those philosophical, regional, or cultural issues that make NRC Republicans uncomfortable, nor did he evidence any sympathy for libertarian notions. On foreign policy, he embraced neither adventurism nor isolation, and he never questioned the wisdom of our decade-long struggle to introduce assorted barbarians to the glories of democracy. No matter how the decidedly non-disinterested observers try to sell it, it was just a generally angry-looking guy saying things we have heard many times before from mainstream Republicans. Though theoretically an homage to Reagan, Christie's speech could have been delivered by John McCain.

Savants will respond that it was really the give-and-take after the formal speech that marked Christie as The Man of Destiny. Clearly he is a better debater than, say, Rick Perry, and less likely to step into hyperbolic traps than, say, Herman Cain or Michele Bachmann.

The contrast with Perry, Cain, and Bachmann is, of course, the real point of all this for mainstream Republicans, and it incorporates a lot more than Christie's debating skills. Whether by luck or design, Christie's perfectly timed speech provided the opening for a last-ditch attempt by a Republican establishment, worried about a faltering Romney, to head off trends they do not like represented by the Tea Party, Jim DeMint, strong alternative conservative and libertarian voices in the New Media, and other unsettling influences on the right.

Indeed, for all of the "Christie hurts Romney more than Perry" conventional wisdom, if Mitt Romney misses his assigned turn, Christie -- with no extravagant notions about gun rights, definite "Islam is a peaceful religion" credentials, etc. -- is clearly positioned to replace him.


Five Things Conservative Voters Need To Know About Christie

1. Illegal Immigration

The biggest chink in Rick Perry's armor so far has been his record on illegal immigration — specifically, the legislation he passed as governor to allow illegal immigrants to pay the in-state tuition rate when attending state colleges and universities. It's this policy that has led many Republicans to question whether Perry really gets illegal immigration at all.

But Chris Christie is hardly the ally that illegal-immigration foes are looking for. In 2010, Christie told Politico that America needs to come up with a "clear path to citizenship." He didn't say "for illegal immigrants," but since America already has a clear path to citizenship for legal immigrants, that's what he meant. This is an entirely reasonable and mainstream position, but in much of the GOP, they call it "amnesty."

Christie's opponents could also point to the time he insisted that being in the country illegally is not a crime but an "administrative matter." He's right — simply overstaying your visa, for example, can get you deported but can't land you in jail. But to impassioned illegal-immigration warriors, we're not sure the nuance will be appreciated.

Then there's Christie's record on illegal immigration as a U.S. Attorney in New Jersey, the job he held before he became governor. Back in 2008, Bill Tucker, a producer on Lou Dobbs's now-deceased CNN show, could only find thirteen illegal-immigration cases prosecuted by Christie's office between 2002 and 2007. Tucker compared that to the U.S. Attorney's office in Kansas, which, despite a much smaller population, prosecuted 597 cases in the same time period. "This man is an utter embarrassment," Dobbs wailed.

2. Gun Control

In an October 2009 appearance on Sean Hannity's Fox News show, Christie voiced support for some gun-control laws:

HANNITY: Are there any issues where you are, quote, moderate to left as a Republican?

CHRISTIE: Listen, I favor some of the gun-control measures we have in New Jersey.

HANNITY: Bad idea.

CHRISTIE: Listen, we have a densely-populated state, and there's a big hand gun problem in New Jersey. Now, I don't support all the things that the governor supports by a long stretch. But I think on guns — certain gun control issues, looking at it from a law-enforcement perspective, seeing how many police officers were killed, we have an illegal gun problem in New Jersey.

HANNITY: Should every — should every citizen in the state be allowed to get a licensed weapon if they want one?

CHRISTIE: In New Jersey, that's not going to happen, Sean.


CHRISTIE: Listen, the Democratic legislature we have, there's no way those type of things — listen, at the end of the day, what I support are common sense laws that will allow people to protect themselves, but I also am very concerned about the safety of our police officers on the streets, very concerned. And I want to make sure that we don't have an abundance of guns out there.

Again, most people believe in having some "common sense" gun-control laws. But when politicians say "common sense gun-control laws," conservatives hear "seize all weapons and ban hunting and make everyone eat tofu." Compare Christie's even-handedness on guns to Perry, who literally goes jogging with a laser-sighted pistol in case he needs to shoot any coyotes.

When Perry was asked earlier this month whether the supports gun control, he responded, "I am actually for gun control. Use both hands."

3. Climate Change

Rick Perry claims that climate change is a hoax that scientists have concocted as a way to get more funding. Chris Christie, after going back and forth on the issue a bit, said just this August that "climate change is real" and "human activity plays a role in these changes." As for those scheming scientists, Christie said that "when you have over 90 percent of the world’s scientists who have studied this stating that climate change is occurring and that humans play a contributing role, it’s time to defer to the experts."

4. Race to the Top

Race to the Top, the federal program created by President Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan in which large grants are offered to states that reform their education systems, shouldn't necessarily be a problem for conservatives. After all, some of the reforms Race to the Top hopes to incentivize, such as measuring teachers based on the success of their students, are goals shared by Republicans. But apparently it's a sin these days to support anything the Obama administration does. In the last GOP debate, Rick Perry proclaimed that "there is one person on this stage that is for Obama's Race to the Top and that is Governor Romney," adding, "[T]hat is not conservative." Mitt Romney then tied himself up in knots trying to deny the accusation. "I'm not sure exactly what he's saying," Romney claimed. "I don't support any particular program that he's describing."

Well, we know Chris Christie supports Race to the Top, because as governor, he applied for its funds. Christie also called Obama a "great ally" in education reform and praised Duncan as an "extraordinary leader on this issue."

5. Muslims

Remember when people pretended, for a little while, that the ground-zero mosque was a slap in the face of the victims of 9/11? In the heat of the controversy, as Republican politicians demagogued the issue to death, Christie claimed that the mosque was "being used as a political football by both parties." He added that while we must "give some measure of deference to the feelings" of 9/11 families, "it would be wrong to so overreact to that, that we paint Islam with a brush of radical Muslim extremists that just want to kill Americans because we are Americans."

And while we're talking about Muslims, Christie came under fire by some anti-Islam hysterics this summer for his appointment of Sohail Mohammed to New Jersey Superior Court. Mohammed, a Muslim lawyer, at one point represented Mohammed Qatanani, a New Jersey imam facing deportation who had alleged past ties to Hamas. The ties were never proven and Qatanani wasn't deported, partly owing to the support he received from Jewish leaders, politicians, and law-enforcement officials like Chris Christie, who called Qatanani "a man of great goodwill." As for the outcry over his nomination of Mohammed, Christie said, "It's just crazy, and I'm tired of dealing with the crazies."

Wild Thing's comment.......

Christie's speech at the Reagan Library was nothing more than a McCain-ish "we need to cross the isle" about "leadership is compromise." Blehhhh

Is anyone else wondering just who is so urgently begging Christie to run? And why?

I liked Christie’s handling of the unions and the budget, BUT that is all there is. Christie is great for NJ, but not great for the country. We need the next prez to come and really shake things up, like getting oil fracking going, drilling in ANWAR, really cutting small bussiness taxes etc. that is not Christie, that is Rick Perry.

One other thing, Romney is not cutting it so they the Republican left and rinos want to send in the second string. Murdoch has been proping up Romney for months, that debate was a set up to destroy Perry (look at the soft ball questions given to Romney, they allowed him to talk way after the bell rang, and everyone on the stage plus the moderators piled on Perry).

The Plot Against Eugene Vallorani

The Plot Against Perry

Written on October 1, 2011

by Eugene Vallorani ( Mr. Vallorani is a resident of Beaumont Texas, a self employed Financial Consultant and a retired veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps)

The Mainstream Media, including Fox News, and the establishment of the Republican Party have put together a coordinated effort to defeat Governor Rick Perry’s bid for the Presidency of the United States. There are three reasons why these groups are plotting against Perry.

First, he hails from Texas and they claim he is “soft on illegal immigration.” I will set the record straight on Perry’s immigration policy. Second, he’s not a “silver tongued” public speaker — as if that should be a qualification anyway. We all know what the last “silver tongued” orator has done to our country. Actions, my fellow citizens, speak louder than words. Third, Governor Perry is a Christian Conservative.

Plot #1: Discredit Perry’s Position on Immigration

First, my fellow Americans need to understand that Texas is a border state that shares 1,800 miles with Mexico. Governor Perry is adamant that the Federal Government must commit more troops on the border with the addition of aerial surveillance with unmanned drones. Governor Perry has also dispatched the fabled Texas Rangers to perform reconnaissance missions on the border. Does this sound like a candidate who is “soft on immigration?”

Secondly, let me address Perry’s position on granting in-state tuition to the children of illegal aliens. One of the many great things about Texas is that we do not have State income tax. State schools are funded by sales tax and property tax. Everyone living in Texas, regardless of national citizenship, supports these institutions by paying sales tax. Besides, this tuition law was one passed overwhelmingly and nearly unanimously by the Texas Legislature in 2001. The Wall Street Journal, in an editorial published September 27, 2011, reported that clearly 73 percent of those children are native born Americans. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that such children cannot be deprived of an elementary public education based on the immigration status of their parents. That ruling applies to all 50 states. Texas allows citizens of all its border states to also pay in state tuition. To politicize a decades-old law over the education of innocent little children because of the citizen status of their parents is not right.

To further understand my point, please take a minute to watch the video of my fellow conservatives who support Perry’s position on immigration. If Republicans are not careful, we will drive Christian Conservative hispanics to the Democrat Party!

Texas is the only state in the Union that fought its own war of independence and many of its heroes are Hispanics like Juan Seguin and President Zavalla. These men are as much heroes in Texas as Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and Sam Houston. In Texas, there is a special bond between its Anglo and Hispanic citizens — we are all free men under God.

The Left wants population control. They don’t want immigrants in America, because they will not be able to achieve and sustain their Socialist dream. Why are conservatives supporting a Left-wing agenda?

Plot #2: Portray Perry as a Poor Public Speaker

On September 22nd, the Fox News organization allegedly worked behind the scenes to portray Governor Perry’s facial expressions in a negative light while his “so-called” fellow Republicans attacked him. Technical operations and camera angles can be used make one look good or bad to the viewing public. During their hosted debates, CNN and MSNBC concentrated their negativity toward Governor Perry both during and after the debate.

Fox commentator Sean Hannity is being most hypocritical when he adulates New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, but fails to report that Mr. Christie favors gun control and has no arguments against homosexual marriage. Mr. Hannity’s actions reinforce my thesis that Fox, the Left wing media, and the Eastern elites of the Republican Establishment really do support gun control, same sex marriage, and all of the filth and immorality that has befallen this once Christian nation.

Plot #3: Dismiss Perry because he came from a poor family and he is a Christian

Governor Perry is the son of a share cropper. He grew up in a house without running water and worked in the fields with Mexican workers. He went on to become an Air Force officer, pilot, and longest-serving Governor in the history of Texas. His life is truly an American success story fulfilled. Most importantly, he has placed his faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is the same Lord and Savior that our hispanic brothers worship. The media despises Christians and persecutes them at every opportunity. They are doing this to Perry as well.

Believe me when I say that Governor Perry is the only one who can defeat President Obama. If Mr. Romney wins the nomination, the Tea Party will probably split and form a Third Party. We all know this will ensure the re-election of Mr. Obama and our great country will be ruled once again by godless non-believers. Now is the time for all Christians from all denominations to unite and not to be misled by the Media who would willingly bring about the decline and fall of America.

Perry is a Christian and a Patriot who loves America. He is the only man who can defeat Obama and take America back from the clutches of his socialist regime.

Exclusive: Rick Perry Says It’s President Obama Who’s Soft, Not the American People ~ A Must See Video Great Interview

FOX Insider

In an exclusive interview, Rick Perry spoke to Carl Cameron about his record on immigration, the death of Anwar al-Awlaki, and Obama’s comments that Americans are “soft.”

Perry defended his strong record on immigration in Texas. He said that the problem is that the federal government has failed to secure the border, so as governor he has to deal with the problem.

He said that since illegal immigrants had already crossed the border, he had two options: to kick them to the curb or to educate them. The Texas legislature overwhelmingly voted to educate them. He said the real issue that people need to focus on is securing the border, which President Obama will not do.

Perry spoke about the death of Anwar al-Awlaki and attributed it to GItmo remaining open and allowing us to garner intelligence from its prisoners.

Of remarks made by President Obama that Americans are “soft,” Perry clarified that Americans have it “tough” because of this president. He went on to say, “Americans aren’t soft. We’ve got some bad policies on tax and regulation in Washington, D.C. that are kicking people out of jobs every day. That’s the real tragedy. What we’ve got is a soft president.”

Warren Buffett Will NOT Endorse Obama’s Buffett Rule

Warren Buffett Will NOT Endorse Obama’s Buffett Rule

CNBC: “Are you happy that the way it is being described. Is the program that the White House has presented a million dollars and over your program? ”

Warren Buffett: “Well, the precise program which will — I don’t know what their program will be. My program would be on the very high incomes that are taxed very low. Not just high incomes. Somebody making $50 million a year playing baseball, his taxes won’t change. Make $50 million a year appearing on television, his income won’t change. But, if they make a lot of money and pay a very low tax rate, like me, it would be changed by a minimum tax that would only bring them up to what other people pay.”

CNBC: “Does that mean you disagree with the president’s new jobs proposal which would be paid for by raising taxes on households with incomes of over $250,000.”

Buffett: “That’s another program that I won’t be discussing. My program is to have a tax on ultra-rich people who are very tax rates. Not just all rich people.

Wild Thing's comment.....

LOL and here Obama has named it after Buffett. hahahaha

I love it when Obama has a bad day, bad week etc. It is better for America too.

Gov. Rick Perry's Townhall Meeting At The Adams Memorial Opera House

Gov. Rick Perry's Townhall Meeting with New Hampshire voters at the Adams Memorial Opera House in Derry. This is the Governor s first town hall meeting in New Hampshire since announcing his campaign for President in August.


The video was done by C-SPAN and they do not have it where it can be posted at blogs. So I will put the LINK here for you to click on. His Townhall was so good!!!!!! I missed the first part of it when it was happening, they did it live yesteday, so I am really glad they at least have the link so I can share it with all of you.

DERRY — Texas Gov. Rick Perry delivered an anti-tax, pro-business message last night at a town hall-style forum on the Presidential primary trail.

Perry signed the New Hampshire anti-tax pledge made famous by former Gov. Meldrim Thomson.

Thomson's son, Tom, was on hand for the moment, as Perry first straddled, then brandished a giant ax that the late governor had used on the campaign trail 40 years ago with an "Ax the Tax" slogan.

"I know how to use it," Perry told Thomson, to applause and laughter.

More than 100 people turned out for the forum at the Adams Memorial Opera House.

"Americans can't find a job. Our country is in trouble," Perry told the audience.

"The fact is there is nothing ailing America that the rebirth of freedom cannot cure," Perry said. "Freedom from too much government, freedom from too much spending, from too much borrowing, freedom from too much regulation," he said.

"Imagine for a minute, if you will, an America where we can set our people free. Employers who are free from over-regulation will once again be able to invest in the economy and create jobs," he said. "Americans will be able to get back to work."

Perry was asked whether he would go after President Obama aggressively on the campaign trail.

"Today, driving in, (gas) was $3.40 a gallon. The unemployment rate is somewhere between 9 and 10 percent. We've got a double-A credit rating. And our national debt, stacked upon the back of those young men and women in that middle row, is approaching $15 trillion. You ask yourself, 'You better off today than you were two and a half years ago?' No sir," he said. "We will take it to this President, day in and day out."

He defended his stance on the need for Social Security reform, saying he would not change a thing for those receiving benefits now or those approaching retirement age.

After fielding several questions, he returned to the theme of reviving the economy. "If we don't get America working," Perry said, "All these other questions don't matter."

He stressed regulatory and tax burdens must be reduced for companies. "We have run them off," Perry said of the flight of businesses overseas.

Perry, since announcing this summer, has at times led the Republican field in some national polls, but is now in a close race with Mitt Romney nationally. He has been trailing Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, by a wide margin in New Hampshire.

Perry's message appealed to those in attendance.

"I like what I heard. I think he's very straightforward," Linda Mrock of Derry said.

While not ready to commit to Perry, she said he was a candidate who could get her vote.

"A lot of different things he said in there I like," Jane Manning of Derry said.

Herman Cain On Jay Leno

Herman Cain is asked about the stupid comment that Sarah Palin made referring to him ia flavor of the week and then mispronouncing his name.


Herman Cain on Muslims


Wild Thing's comment......

I am glad Jay has the various candidates on his show. I am not sure if he has had all of them yet or not. I know he had Michele Bachmann and it was horrible even Jay was disgusted in how she kept up with the story about the mysterious woman. hahaha

Cain did a good job and is a natural on talk shows. He also handled the things Sarah Palin had said on Greta's show the other night.
