NBC Brian Williams Pointing Finger At President Bush and Now Williams Attacks Gov. Jan Brewer For Doing it. LOL


Flashback 2006: NBC's Brian Williams Points Finger At President Bush

As NewsBusters previously reported, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on Thursday, reacting with predictably similar disgust as the rest of the media to the picture of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer pointing her finger at Barack Obama, asked viewers, "Who have you ever seen talking to the president like this?"

Maybe he should have looked in the archives of interviews he did with George W. Bush wherein he was guilty of making the exact same supposedly offensive hand gesture at the President of the United States

Apparently Williams doesn't either, for here's part of his highly outraged report from Thursday:

Wild Thing's comment.....

Hahha the media is so phoney. They do it and to them it is OK, but if a Republican does it then it is oh soooo horrible. hahhahaa

The other thing too, Jan Brewer's State of AZ. is being sued by Obama for wanting to follow our immigration laws...I think she has a right to point a finger at the freak Obama.

ABC News: Santorum's Daughter Has Pneumonia ~ Please Pray For Little Bella Santorum!!!

Sen. Rick Santorum will stay off the campaign trail, canceling scheduled stops in Florida so he can remain in Philadelphia with his 3 year-old daughter, Bella, who is hospitalized:


ABC News: Santorum's Daughter Has Pneumonia

The reason Bella Santorum was admitted to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Saturday night is because she has pneumonia in both of her lungs, a campaign aide told ABC News.

The 3-year-old, who has the serious genetic disorder Trisomy 18, is not on a ventilator, though, which is a very good sign. The family has medical equipment in their Virginia home and because of the risk of infection in hospitals they try to keep her out unless it is absolutely necessary.

She was in and out of hospitals the first year of her life, but since then — aside from besides being admitted for surgeries — she has not spent any time in the hospital before Saturday, Rick Santorum has said on the campaign trail.

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

This goes beyond politics, I am praying this dear child will get well soon. And prayers for Rick Sanotrum and his wife and the rest of their family.

Rep. Allen West - "Obama, Reid, Pelosi, get the hell out of the USA" ~ Applause for West!

"I will not stand back and watch anyone defame, degrade or destroy that which my father fought for." Allen West at the Lincoln Day Dinner in West Palm Beach for the Palm Beach County GOP blasts the liberal left. This is just awesome.

We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain't on the table," West said.

"Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America"

I love it , good for Allen West!

Awesome Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) Delivered the Republican Weekly Address

Here’s the transcript:

“Hello, I’m Marco Rubio, a Senator from Florida. Right now all eyes are focused on my home state ahead of next week’s Republican presidential primary. It’s an exciting contest and I know that passions are high. So I wanted to take a moment to explain to the rest of the country why Republicans in Florida are so excited about this primary: Because we believe our country is in big trouble.

“As you know, earlier this week, President Obama delivered his fourth annual address to Congress. It was an opportunity for the President to talk about his accomplishments over the last three years and to lay out his plans for the year ahead.

“And he missed on both counts.

“You didn’t hear much talk about the success of his Administration—and that’s because there isn’t much.

“Yes, this President inherited a significant national debt, but over the last three years he’s made it worse. Our national debt has grown by nearly 50 percent since he took over, and now, for the first time since World War II, our national debt is larger than our country’s economy.

“Yes, this President inherited an economy where unemployment was too high, but over the last three years he’s made it worse. Today our unemployment rate is higher than the day he took office. In fact, since he took over, it’s been stuck over 8 percent every single month.

“This President didn’t talk about his record for one simple reason; he doesn’t want you to know about it. But you do know about it, because you feel the failure of his leadership every single day of your life.

“The bottom line is this President inherited a country with serious problems. He asked the Congress to give him the stimulus and Obamacare to fix it. The Democrats in Congress gave it to him. And not only did it not work, it made everything worse.

“President Obama has a year left in the White House. So what are his plans now to make things better? What does he plan to do now, that he didn’t do before? Well we got our answer Tuesday night. He plans to divide us against each other. To pit Americans against other Americans in the hopes of generating enough votes to get re-elected.

“He tells Americans worried about their jobs that the way to help them is to raise their bosses’ taxes.

“He tells those who are hurting that the only way they can be better off, is for others to be worse off.

“He tells all of us that the only way for some of us to climb up the economic ladder is for others to be pulled down.

“This divisive rhetoric, this effort to gain political support by convincing some that they will be better off if we punish others, this stuff has never worked anywhere it’s been tried.

“People end up fleeing countries who adopt economic policies based on these flawed principles. And more often than not, they come here.

“They come here because this is not who we are.

“Americans have always believed that all of us can succeed.

“That those who have made it fairly, can stay there. And those who are trying to make it will have a real chance to join them.

“This is what has made us different. This is what has made us prosperous. This is what makes us exceptional.

“And now, for the first time in my adult life, we have a President who’s asking us to abandon our economic heritage.

“To become like the countries people come here to get away from.

“To become like everybody else.

“Yes, people are hurting. Yes, there is a growing gap between the rich and the poor.

“But the way to solve it is not to embrace the ‘trickle up poverty’ economics of other nations.

“The way to solve it is to embrace the American Free Enterprise system.

“No economic system is perfect. But the American Free Enterprise system has empowered millions of people in the past. I know, because I saw it with my own eyes.

“My father was a bartender. And I thank God every night that there was someone willing to risk their money to build a hotel on Miami Beach and later in Las Vegas where he could work.

“I thank God that there was enough prosperity in America so people could go on vacation to Miami or Las Vegas. Where people felt prosperous enough to have weddings or Bar Mitzvahs and, by the way, could leave tips in my Dad’s little tip jar. Because with that money he raised us. And he gave me the opportunity to do things he never had a chance to do.

“Now, we had help along the way. I had student loans and grants from the government to help me get my education. And I went to our public school system.

“That’s an important role for government to play. And so I also thank God that we had an economy prosperous enough to afford to pay for these things as well.

“So, I’ll just close by saying, I hope this year will be the beginning of our work towards a new and prosperous American century.

“Because I know that this idea of a nation where anyone from anywhere can accomplish anything, it’s not just something I read about in history books. I’ve seen it in my own life. And there’s no reason why we cannot continue it here, if only we do the right things.

“May God bless all of you, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.”

Newt Gingrich Praises President Obama on the Stimulus & Healthcare

Wild Thing's comment.....

This is VERY scary to hear him saying this.

This is something that Nick wrote last night. ...................

Newt sold out every campaign promise he made in 1994. Newt is the reason conservatism is the state it is in. If Newt had simply frozen spending as Speaker...then George W would have had to follow and we would not be even close to where we are now.(and Obama would not be POTUS) He is a leftist on health care, the environment, the list is long. He is a horrible manager and leader. Being a good communicator and strategist has nothing to do with being a leader. Look at Obama.

In 2003 Newt was the lead pimp/cheerleader for medicare D.He had been pushing for that for years.

As Speaker he was the one who allowed entitlements to get out of control when back then there was a chance of keeping it managed.
As Speaker, Newt whipped the caucus into supporting the creation of the SCHIP entitlement.
Newt has a record second to none among Republicans of advocating for, and or implementing,multi trillion dollar health care entitlements that piece by piece takeover the health care industry.
Newt killed the Reagan Revolution and he ushered in an era of HUGE government. (starting with him ILLEGALLY busting the spending Caps in 96,97,98). Newt takes Socialist positions on every spending issue.Newt makes Romney and George W seem like arch conservatives.

Good grief~ Joe Biden Uses Fake Indian Accent During Speech About Outsourcing (Video)

While at a jobs event in Rochester, New Hampshire: VP Joe Biden uses an Indian accent to imitate call service employees. I can just imagine the firestorm if a Republican had done this. Here's the video of Biden in NH.

BIDEN: Even call centers, even call centers rushed over seas, hundreds of thousands. How many times you get the call, ‘I like to talk to you about your credit card’? Or that ad on TV, what is it? ‘Nancy, this is Nancy, can I talk to a supervisor?’ Right? Ok? Well, it’s a little overdone but the truth of the matter is these jobs now are paying about $19.50 an hour if memory serves me.

Obama To ABC’s Diane Sawyer: I Want Second Term ‘Badly’ ~ God Help Us NO WAY Do WE Want Obama

Obama also responded to Republican hopeful Newt Gingrich referring to him as “the food stamp president.”

“First of all, I don’t put people on food stamps,” Obama said. “People become eligible for food stamps. Second of all, the initial expansion of food-stamp eligibility happened under my Republican predecessor, not under me. No. 3, when you have a disastrous economic crash that results in 8 million people losing their jobs, more people are going to need more support from government.”

Obama spoke with ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an interview on Thursday. Sawyer asked him how intense his reelection ambitions were.

“How much do you want it?” “Badly,” Obama replied. “Because I think the country needs it.”

“Whoever wins the Republican primary is going to be a standard bearer for a vision of the country that I don’t think reflects who we are,” Obama said. “I’m going to fight as hard as I can with every fiber of my being to make sure that we continue on a path that I think will restore the American dream.”

AZ. Gov.Jan Brewer and Confrontational Obama At Airport

Governor Jan Brewer discussed her confrontation with Obama today at the Phoenix airport. Brewer told Greta Van Susteren that Obama ambushed her when he got off the plane about a book she wrote. This upset her and that is when she poked her finger at his chest. Brewer said that Obama walked away from her in mid-sentence.

" I don’t know why he was surprised by my book and he’s very thin-skinned in regards to it.”

President Thin-Skin arrived in Phoenix, Arizona today and was greeted by Governor Jan Brewer. With all the major problems facing our country and the state of Arizona he chose, instead, to complain about her book. She had called him…gasp!…patronizing.


According to USA Today,

President Obama and Gov. Jan Brewer had a tense exchange Wednesday, sparring over the Arizona governor’s portrayal of Obama as “patronizing” in her memoir. Obama was greeted by Brewer soon after Air Force One landed in Phoenix this afternoon. The president was handed a handwritten letter by Brewer and they spoke intensely for a few minutes, according to a White House pool report. At one point, she was pointing her finger at him and at another, they were talking at the same time, seemingly over each other, according to pooler Carrie Buddof Brown of Politico.

“He was a little disturbed about my book, Scorpions for Breakfast,” Brewer told reporters travelling with Obama. “I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president. The book is what the book is. I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt. “

Wild Thing's comment......

This is what Rick Perry did, he hand delievered a letter at the airport to Obama too and Obama physically turned away from him. Obama is a POS!

Newt’s Victory In S.Carolina is the Tea Party’s Loss ~ A Must Read Article

Newt’s victory is the tea party’s loss

Sen. Rand Paul has said that Newt Gingrich “goes against everything the tea party stands for.” This might be an understatement.

The tea party originally stood for one simple but important message: Stop spending. For tea partiers, the “Troubled Asset Relief Program” or TARP was the litmus test and any Republican who supported it faced the wrath of the movement. Explained Utah tea party leader David Kirkham in May 2010:

I think it’s a matter of fiscal or financial responsibility … What the tea party people are about and the vote for TARP and the vote for the bailout was, in our opinion, pretty fiscally irresponsible, and that’s what’s raised the ire of most people.

At the time, Kirkham’s group was working to unseat Republican Senator Bob Bennett, who had voted for TARP. Kirkham’s efforts would eventually help elect tea party champion Sen. Mike Lee. When asked if the TARP-supporting incumbent deserved to lose his seat over just one vote, Kirkham replied:

That one vote was pretty toxic. That one vote affected a lot of things, changed the rules of the game. President Bush said that where we have to abandon free market principles to save the free market, and fundamentally, we just don’t agree. There’s just no way.

Tea party support for Newt Gingrich in South Carolina and elsewhere marks a new point — a low point — for the movement. When John McCain suspended his campaign in 2008 to go to Washington to support TARP, Gingrich said, “This is the greatest single act of responsibility ever taken by a presidential candidate and rivals President Eisenhower saying ‘I will go to Korea.’”

The tea party believed that TARP represented Washington at its most irresponsible. Gingrich believed the exact opposite. In fact, if you were to make a list of every big-government issue most tea partiers stand against — bank bailouts, healthcare mandates, cap-and-trade, you name it — Gingrich has been, or still is, on the opposite side.

Grassroots conservatives want a Republican nominee who will fight President Obama on issues like bailouts and healthcare mandates. Saturday, grassroots conservatives in South Carolina championed a Republican presidential candidate who has agreed with Obama on both of those issues. In the debates, Obama could even say that Newt was for forcing Americans to purchase health insurance before he was against it. And the president will be right.

When Gingrich called McCain’s support for TARP “the greatest single act of responsibility ever taken by a presidential candidate,” this was classic Newt-speak — Gingrich is a great talker and often speaks in bold and indeed “grandiose” terms. Newt sounds good. People like that. They respond to it. It inspires them. Ask Barack Obama.

But the tea party was supposed to be better than this. The tea party was supposed to stand for something more substantive.

When Gingrich dressed down CNN’s John King at the beginning of the debate last Thursday, Newt became an instant hero to many conservatives. This unquestionably helped deliver Gingrich his South Carolina victory. Most pundits and probably even Gingrich himself would not disagree with this analysis.

Gingrich won South Carolina because he berated the media — which conservatives rightly see as often being in cahoots with Obama. Gingrich won because conservatives want to see a forceful challenge to Obama. Conservatives don’t see this sort of fight coming from Mitt Romney. Conservatives don’t like Romney. But the divide between these two front-runners is entirely personality-based. On the actual issues, Gingrich and Romney are almost indistinguishable. Writes National Review’s Yuval Levin:

What stands out about Romney and Gingrich … Both of them are fundamentally moderates: Very wonky Rockefeller Republicans … both still very much exhibit the technocratic countenance of the Rockefeller Republican — a program for every problem …

Levin adds:

They’re also essentially in the same place politically — I can’t think of a single major issue on which Gingrich is more conservative than Romney …

Many tea partiers like Gingrich because he seems willing to “fight.” Here is where conservatives are most wrong about Gingrich. Gingrich always talks boldly. He did so when he went after John King. Newt talked boldly when he praised McCain for supporting TARP. Gingrich spoke boldly when he joined Nancy Pelosi on the couch to promote climate change legislation.

Speaking boldly has always been Newt’s “style.”

Gingrich’s “substance” is an entirely different matter. When the rubber hits the road for conservatives — and we come to the moments where Republicans might actually offer real spending cuts or reform — Gingrich always backs down. When the freshmen Republican class of 1994 arrived in Congress promoting the Contract with America, they were quickly told by the leadership (Gingrich) to cool their jets. Class of ’94 Congressman Mark Sanford has said that the GOP leadership stressed the freshmen were no longer in “campaign mode” but “governing mode.” When Rep. Paul Ryan offered an entitlement reform plan last year, virtually every conservative was onboard. Gingrich called it “right-wing social engineering.” When Ron Paul proposed $1 trillion in cuts in October, conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and others cheered. Gingrich called this proposal a “non-starter.”

Gingrich is not a fighter. He’s a talker. Right now is the time when the GOP presidential candidates are expected to at least lie to voters, promising them how much they will cut or shrink government. Yet, Gingrich already considers any of the substantive proposals offered by Republicans toward this end beyond the pale. Gingrich cuts great promos. He will not cut government.

The moment the tea party abandons its trademark “Stop spending” message, the movement loses its original independence and simply morphs back into the GOP machine — something both right and left critics always said would happen. Sen. Lindsey Graham bragged in 2010 that the tea party would “die out” because it had “no governing vision.” I have argued that as long as the tea party stands firmly against spending it will remain an indomitable force in American politics.

But is Sen. Graham now being proven right?

The tea party was a movement founded on the idea that voters should throw politicians’ big-government records back in their faces. The “governing vision” of the movement was to insist that Republicans envision a very small government. The moment tea partiers decide they are no longer concerned with actual limited-government issues and holding politicians’ feet to the fire, they essentially surrender their movement.

With Gingrich, as with Obama, there is a danger in mistaking articulation for wisdom. Yelling at John King is not a political philosophy and certainly not sufficient to win the next election. American politics before the tea party was mostly a popularity contest — and this was precisely what was wrong with much of American politics.

In 2009 and 2010, the tea party wanted America to know it had been seduced by a smooth-talking president with bad policies. In South Carolina Saturday, many in the tea party were seduced in the same manner


Gingrich the Defense Weakling

In his diaries, Ronald Reagan wrote that Newt Gingrich "would cripple our defense program." Elliott Abrams, key Reagan lieutenant on defense and foreign policy, writes that "Gingrich was voluble and certain in predicting that Reagan's policies would fail, and in all of this he was dead wrong."


Limbaugh Letting Newt Know How Wrong Newt Was To Say.." the era of Reagan is over"

Back in March 2009... Newt Gingrich had put down Ronald Reagan saying" the era of Reagan is over"...... and when Rush Limbaugh spoke at CPAC he had some things to say about Newt! God bless Rush Limbaugh and the hell with Newt Gingrich!!!


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

I wanted to let all of you know, Nick and I already voted.

Awhile back Nick and I filled out the absentee ballots in case we might be out of town when it came time to vote. We both voted for the true conservative Rick Perry. At that time we did not mail them in they were only filled out as I said in case we had to go out of town.

Nick always likes to vote early so this week early voting begins here in Florida.

I told Nick I hate to vote because Perry is no longer a candidate and what a horrible day this is going to be. He said we already voted. I asked him what? And he said he mailed in the absentee ballots we had so our vote was made awhile back. He forgot to tell me when he did it. He thought I knew. I know some of you will think this is horrible and maybe get mad, but I am glad Nick mailed our vote in because we got to vote for the best candidate.

This election it will either be Newt or Romney and either one if they campaign hitting Obama hard.

Also I want to share this with you all too. I have heard people say when I am out and about that they might not vote for President. I tell them look if you don't like anyone in the Primary that is one thing. But not to vote in the General and try all you can to get Obama out is a vote for Obama. So please no matter how we might feel sick and angry about the choice we end up with there is no way we can let Obama get a second term.

YIPPEEE!!! Congressman Waxman Gets Chewed Out During Keystone Hearing (Video)

Angered by Waxman’s political posturing, Whitfield took a shot at the Obama Administration and Solyndra.

“If you want to talk about that, let’s talk about the millions of dollars the Obama administration gave companies like Solyndra and people like George Kaiser and other campaign bundlers,” Whitfield fumed.

“Why are you interrupting members and then you take unlimited time for yourself?” Waxman responded.

“I’m the chairman! And I’m telling you right now we’re going to recess for ten minutes!” Whitfield boomed, before storming out of the hearing.

Marco Rubio Responds to The President's State Of The Union Address on Hannity

Rubio Responds to The President's State Of The Union Address on Hannity


Earlier yesterday Newt was attacking Ronney because he hired some of the Charlie Crist people to work for him in Florida. So because Marco Rubio knows first hand about how awful Charlie Crist was for Florida he spoke out about his opinion about Romney.

Marco Rubio: Mitt Romney is no Charlie Crist

Newt Gingrich's decision today to bash Mitt Romney for hiring former Charlie Crist loyalists and employees doesn't seem to be sitting well with Sen. Marco Rubio, who drove Crist out of the Republican Party before beating him at the polls in 2010.

Said Rubio: "Mitt Romney is no Charlie Crist. Romney he was one of the first national Republican leaders to endorse me. He came to Florida, campaigned hard for me, and made a real difference in my race."


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

Marco is always good and I thank God that he is our guy here in Florida. I pray for him that he can stay strong he has done so great so far. Regarding his comment about Romney and being upset by what Newt said, I can't blame him for that. He is just respecting Romney because of what he stated that Romney was the first to endorse him.

Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney On Obama's State of the Union Address

...." As Obama delivers his State of the Union address, he will probably fail to mention his actual record over the last three years. Unemployment is still high, our debt is still increasing, and our credit has been downgraded. "

TAMPA, Fla — Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney urged voters here to make President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday his last and blamed the Democrat for pushing policies that have raised the nation’s unemployment rate, worsened the housing crises and pushed the nation deeper into a sea of red ink.

Standing under an “Obama Isn’t Working” banner, the former Massachusetts governor said that Mr. Obama, during his first three years in office, has “amassed an actual record of debt, decline and disappointment” and pushed the nation toward a “European-style welfare state.”

Along the way, Mr. Romney said that if elected president, he would approve the Keystone Pipeline project, which he and other conservatives claim will put 20,000 people to work, and pursue tax policies aimed at helping middle-class Americans.

“This president’s agenda made these troubled times last longer,” he said, arguing that it “is critical that we make today Barack Obama’s last State of the Union address.”

didn’t mention any of his Republican rivals and instead chose to aim his fire on Mr. Obama’s speech this evening.

He predicted that the “desperate campaigner-in-chief” will use his speech to offer up his “partisan planks for his re-election campaign” and claim that the “Do Nothing Congress” has tied his hands legislatively.

“But, we shouldn’t forget that for two years, this president had a Congress that could do everything he wanted,” Mr. Romney said. “With huge Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, President Obama was free to pursue any policy he pleased. Did he fix the economy? Did he tackle the housing crisis? Did he get Americans back to work? No.”

Instead, he said, the president gave the American people costly policies that they didn’t want, including the $814 billion stimulus package, the overhaul of the federal health-care system and the “Cash for Clunkers” program.

“He’s spearheaded one of the largest expansions of government in American history. And he’s paying for it with money borrowed from China,” Mr. Romney said.

Romney said that if he were delivering the speech he’d outline his agenda for a “simpler, smaller and smarter” federal government, while also calling on Congress to approve the Keystone Pipeline project, simply the tax code and push back against proposed cuts to the defense budget, which amounts to about one-fifth of national spending.

Newt Gingrich on Obama State of the Union

Newt Gingrich Response to State of the Union

Coral Gables, FL - Newt Gingrich released the following statement responding to President Obama's State of the Union address:

We have a crisis of work in this country and tonight President Obama proposed nothing in the way of policy changes that will get us to robust job creation and dramatic economic growth.

Instead, the president described his conviction that his big government is built to last and should be paid for with higher taxes.

But bigger government and higher taxes will not lead to jobs and growth. Bigger government and higher taxes will instead lead to more people on food stamps, a situation which the President and his party defend as a fair outcome.

Here we have to confront the truth about President Obama. Economic growth and prosperity is not really at the top of his agenda. He will always prefer a food stamp economy to a paycheck economy and call it fair.

For the president and a large part of the political class, it's about their power, their right to rule. They just want to take money from Joe the Plumber - the small business people who makes over 90 per cent of the new jobs -- and redistribute it to the government bureaucracy and their political friends and allies. That's why so much of that nearly trillion-dollar stimulus didn't create jobs but just went into the pockets of special interests who support President Obama and the leadership of the Democratic Party.

No better example of this exists than in the crisis of American energy. President Obama and his political allies - not of few of whom love living in energy inefficient houses or driving gas-guzzling luxury vehicles - openly admit they want gas prices to remain high so that the rest of America will learn to live more modestly. They think it's good for rest of us. Only recently, the president canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline that would have created countless new jobs and helped America on the way to energy independence because he wanted to appease the far left of his party. And yet not a single word on the Keystone XL pipeline tonight.

To create jobs and growth in this country, we must start with dramatic tax reform that lowers taxes and maximizes capital investment and job creation. We must return to a dollar as good as gold whose purchasing power is the same in thirty years as it is today. We must dramatically expand American energy production. We must have smarter regulation at the same time we abolish destructive and costly regulatory systems beginning with Obamacare,Dodd-Franks, and Sarbanes-Oxley. And finally, unlike the current administration, we must have faith in job creators.

With these policies the state of the union will be much better. They will create an explosion in job creation and lead to robust economic growth and a return to prosperity. Furthermore, a paycheck economy will put us on a path to balanced budgets and paying down our national debt.

Attention Gun Owners!!! ....Dictator Obama to Congress:" I’ll decide what’s constitutional"

Obama to Congress: I’ll decide what’s constitutional

Election season is here, and you might think President Obama would be going out of his way to show voters that he can be trusted with the powers of the presidency. But you would be wrong. Just a few days before Christmas, Obama served notice to all Americans that he will continue to abuse executive privilege by seeking new ways to vilify gun owners and further his anti-gun agenda.

Congress placed a provision in the $1 trillion omnibus spending bill for 2012 designed to bar the National Institutes of Health (NIH) from using any of its $30.7 billion taxpayer funds to “advocate or promote gun control.” However, upon signing the bill into law, President Obama issued a caveat of his own:

I have advised Congress that I will not construe these provisions as preventing me from fulfilling my constitutional responsibility to recommend to the Congress’s consideration such measures as I shall judge necessary and expedient.

In other words: “Congress may pass laws, but I decide which of its laws are constitutional and which I can simply choose to ignore.”

Of course, the Constitution doesn’t actually give the president this power, but Obama won’t allow a little thing like the U.S. Constitution get in his way. And in the present case, Congress is right to try to prevent him from using a federal health agency, not to mention our tax dollars, as a weapon in his ongoing war against the Second Amendment. As The Washington Times reports, NIH has wasted over $5 million since 2002 producing deceptive studies aimed at furthering gun control — including one study that tried “to prove that a home without firearms was essential to a child’s safety and well-being.”

Even more importantly, Congress knows that there is no scheme too radical, or dangerous, for the Obama administration when it comes to using federal agencies to push its anti-gun agenda.

Last month, email exchanges surfaced between employees at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) that show the administration helped illegally transfer guns to violent Mexican drug cartels in order to manufacture a case for gun registration. Now gun dealers in four Southwest border states must abide by a new gun registration requirement, courtesy of BATFE, that forces them to register the sales of any law-abiding American who purchases more than one semi-automatic rifle within five business days.

Congress never passed any law like this. Rather, Obama’s BATFE orchestrated the deadly “Fast and Furious” gun-walking scandal to give cause for its unconstitutional gun-control edict. Given this, how hard is it to envision the Obama administration issuing a phony “health” study that maligns gun owners?

Obama may not have a majority in Congress, or the will of the people, behind his anti-gun agenda. But that isn’t stopping his administration from finding deceitful ways to evade Congress and build public support for gun bans, gun registration and other regulations designed to weaken and destroy our Second Amendment rights.

He will get to be even more of a dictator if he is elected again. He is already a living nightmare since day one of his presidency.

Seabees Team Makes History in Afghanistan

This team of eight women completed construction of four barracks buildings in the mountains of Afghanistan in November. (Department of the Navy

Seabees team makes history in Afghanistan

It was an unusual job even for the Seabees, the U.S. Navy's construction forces trained to hold a hammer in one hand and a Beretta M9 in the other.

First, the team selected to build barracks high in the mountains of Afghanistan consisted of eight women, who are all stationed at Naval Base Ventura County. And second, the women completed the job far ahead of schedule.

Beating deadline made up for long days and freezing nights in tents without plumbing, building four 20-by-30-foot structures, said Gafayat Moradeyo, the mission commander. But when the women returned to Bagram air field, their Afghanistan base, they learned that they had nailed another achievement: a place in naval history.

Military officials say they are the first all-female construction team to take on a construction job from start to finish in the Seabees' 70-year history. And they did it in record time in the barren rocky mountains of Helmand province, a Taliban stronghold and the focus of recent combat efforts.

At first, the women had their doubts about the achievement. But after checking with military historians and naval museums, they confirmed their status, said Shelby Lutrey, 29, one of the builders.

"It's definitely something to be proud of," she said. "There is nothing wrong with hard work and good results."

The Seabees were created during World War II to fill a critical demand for construction workers who could also fight. Today, there are nine battalions operating out of two U.S. bases, deploying overseas to build airstrips, bridges, roads, living quarters, just about anything needed in a military operation.

Women first joined the Seabees in 1972 and, 22 years later, earned the right to serve alongside their male counterparts in combat zones, said Russell Stewart, a spokesman with the U.S. Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Four.

The team members have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan for years — some are on their third overseas tours. In mid-November, when the call went out for a team of Seabees to build barracks huts, the women put up their hands, Stewart said.

There weren't a lot of male Seabees available at the time, and Moradeyo, from the Chicago area, saw it as an opportunity for the women to prove themselves. At Bagram air base, the mission commander gathered her team, laid out what needed to be done, assembled the building materials and packed a pallet of construction tools for the trip to Helmand province.

Moradeyo and Lutrey, who are still in Afghanistan and were interviewed by phone, demurred when asked if they got any ribbing from their male counterparts. But Stewart, the Seabee spokesman, said that, initially, there was plenty of skepticism.

"Unlike most times Seabees show up to a new location, this team was welcomed with rolling eyes and comments on the order of, 'Really, a group of girls?'" Stewart said.

The builders reportedly changed minds in short order. Working 12-hour days, they agreed on site to double the size of their task, adding an operations center and a gym to the barracks already planned.

Mornings were so cold that ice coated the piles of wood, soaking their gloves as they began throwing up the buildings. They took showers using freezing water pulled by bucket from a well. They ate rice and beans. They disposed of solid waste in a bag and then burned it in a pit, Lutrey said.

"When you join the military, that's what you expect," said the native of Scottsdale, Ariz. "It might not be the most comfortable, but it's necessary."

The women worked so well together that they finished the job, including installing electricity and utilities, in two weeks. It normally takes about three weeks to complete such a project, Seabees officials said.

Lutrey chalked it up to a strong team spirit. They knew the post's soldiers had been living out of tents and mud huts, she said, and they wanted to prove the team's efficiency by quickly providing more comfortable shelter.

"It was probably one of the smoothest builds I've done while in Afghanistan," said Lutrey, who's in her third year of service. "We had a lot of camaraderie. We pushed each other to get the job done."

Besides Moradeyo and Lutrey, the work was completed by Kadisha Lee, Carla Diazcastillo, Amber Mann, Kacie Dunlavey, Jessica Vera and Shayla Miles.

Will the team stay together? Not likely, Moradeyo said. Seabees, each with differing areas of expertise, rotate in and out of construction teams. Moradeyo, for instance, was on another assignment in an undisclosed location last week with a different group of builders — one that included men.

Though immune to the deprivations of working under austere conditions, she said stray thoughts of home enter her mind sometimes as she looks down at her cracked hands and dirt-rimmed nails.

"I think, 'Oh my god, I need to get a manicure,'" she said. "And then I keep going."

This was interesting to me, I actually never thought of women being Seabees before.

The F-35's First Night Flight



The F-35's First Night Flight

The F-35 is the state-of-the-art strike fighter destined to become the standard allied military jet of the 21st century.

Hoping to maintain approval for the F-35, Lockheed Martin's public relations team is not letting up in its efforts to keep the fighter in the public eye and they've released some pretty cool pictures of the fighter's first night flight.

At the same time, Lockheed has been fighting to get the Marine Corps' version of the strike plane off the "probation" imposed upon it by former defense secretary Robert Gates, and back on track — following the success of this flight — it looks like they've succeeded.

The F-35A performed well in straight approaches at dawn, and dusk, with the cockpit lighting described as the best test pilot Mark Ward had ever seen.

While not the F-35B model threatened by Gates, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta pulled the Marine's model off probation and put it back on course.

Marine Amphibious Warfare Taskforce ( totally cool a MUST see Video)

Official ADAPTIV Teaser Video, BAE Systems

The group's ongoing work will give the Marines "the seed corn for the changes" needed to update amphibious ops to the modern day battlefield, Mills said during his speech at the Surface Warfare Association's annual symposium.

WASHINGTON: A special Marine Corps task force created specifically to drag the service's amphibious operations into the 21st century will be sticking around for awhile longer, according to a top service general.

The current Amphibious Capabilities Working Group will be renamed the Ellis Group and be permanently assigned to Marine Corps headquarters in Quantico, Lt. Gen. Richard Mills, head of Marine Corps Combat Development Command said last week. The name pays homage to former Marine Lt. Col. Earl Ellis, considered to be the founding father of amphibious warfare. The group's ongoing work will give the Marines "the seed corn for the changes" needed to update amphibious ops to the modern day battlefield, Mills said during his speech at the Surface Warfare Association's annual symposium. Created last September, the group already wrapped up its initial review of Marine Corps amphib ops, the three-star general said. Group members will submit their final recommendations to top service brass by the end of this month, according to a service spokesman. Those recommendations will likely be folded into the Corps' upcoming large-scale amphibious exercise, dubbed "Bold Alligator", set for next month.

Obama Will Give Missile Tech To Russia Despite Law

If you’re concerned, then you might want to watch this video produced by Dick Morris. I think Dick sums it up best when he says that this president

“has defined the opinion of both houses of Congress, both political parties, in pursuit of some phantom agenda of getting the Russians to like us a little bit more…. I think we will beat this guy in November, but we may not have a country by then”.

Obama Will Give Missile Tech To Russia Despite Law

It appears that Barack Obama has again ignored the rule of law by signing a defense appropriations bill that prohibits him sharing vital United States leading-edge strategic US missile technology with Russia, yet he has told both houses of Congress that he plans to share the US missile technology anyway. Why is this important? Because it goes light-years beyond partisan politics and into an area where our national defense will be put at unreasonable risk. It is believed that the Russians will pass this technology onto China, Iran and North Korea.

I find it bitterly ironic that this president pushes an agenda of excessive government regulation and oversight under the guise of consumer safety. Virtually everything in our homes, offices and automobiles is regulated to some extent by federal bureaucracy. Yet at the same time, he’s subjecting tens of millions of American lives to unreasonable risk by unilaterally giving away our deepest US missile technology to nations hostile to American interests.

So here’s the bottom line. There are those of us who would vote for a Republican candidate because we do not believe in the agenda of this administration. Then there are those of us who would vote again for Barack Obama under the belief that he will take care of us financially by redistributing wealth so that everyone can be more or less equal regardless of skills, talent or work ethic. There’s just one problem. If you take away the United States military’s ability to protect this great nation from a nuclear missile launched from North Korea or even someday Iran, then the concept of federal cradle-to-grave protection and enablement probably loses most of its meaning, doesn’t it?

We have a President of the United States who believes he’s more of a king than a servant of the people. And letting one man, regardless of who he is, make decisions and dictate unilaterally to the other 300 million of us is not only unsettling and frustrating, it’s extremely dangerous. The framers of the Constitution knew that all too well. Unfortunately, too many Americans have little understanding of the timeless principles that founded this country.

And if you don’t understand the value of what you have, history has shown that you are sure to lose it.

Wild Thing's comment......

It is unthinkable any President would make such a deal with Russia. But this one will. Remeber how Bill Clinton passed on some of our technology to China in return for campaign contributions? I wonder if this might be part of why Obama is doing this as well.....who knows.

Then we found out Soros had just made investments in that Brazilian concern.

Obama Killed Keystone Pipeline and Now He Goes After Coal Industry ~ Will Put 32 Coal Plants Out of Business

The Obama Administration killed the Keystone Pipeline project today.

Up next is the coal industry.

New EPA regulations will force 32 coal plants to close their doors putting hundreds of Americans out of work.

The latest move by the EPA will force new regulations on 26 states. The new rules will kill thousands of jobs, cost billions of dollars and increase electricity rates for every family

New EPA rules will force Western coal-fired power plants to install haze-reducing pollution-control equipment at a cost of $1.6 billion a year. Pictured is the Dave Johnston Power Plant in Glenrock, Wyoming.

Power plant closures to cost US towns jobs, taxes

Long expected but no less dreaded, shutdown of 32 US power plants to cost towns jobs, taxes

An Associated Press analysis has found that more than 32 mostly coal-fired power plants in a dozen states will be forced to close because of the new, more stringent regulations. Another 36 plants are at risk of closing.

No lights will go dark. But the Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that 14.7 gigawatts — enough power for more than 11 million households — will be retired from the power grid in the 2014-15 period when the rules take effect. One rule curbs air pollution in states downwind from dirty power plants. Another sets first standards for mercury and other toxic pollutants from smokestacks.

The effect is greatest in the Midwest and in coal belt states such as Virginia and West Virginia, where dozens of units are likely to shut down.

Take Giles County, where American Electric Power’s Glen Lyn plant is located, and where 44 jobs are on the line.

County Administrator Chris McKlarney worries about the $600,000 tax-revenue hit his $40 million budget will take. But that’s just one concern involving a plant and workers whose community contribution is “hard to quantify.”

“They’ve done so much donation-wise for local causes … And they’re really good people working there,” he said. “They’re coaches in Little League sports, involved in the Parent-Teacher Organization — you lose those kind of people, it’s tough.”

And they’re good jobs — stable, well-paying positions with good benefits in places where such things can be hard to find.

The Obama Administration’s new energy regulations will shut down about 8% of all U.S. generating capacity or the equivalent of wiping out all power generation for Florida and Mississippi

Allen West Says Harry Reid: “He Stands for Fiscal Insanity

“We saw Senator Harry Reid talk about people being obstructionists. We saw him blame the tea party, we saw him blame senate Republicans. Hes even blamed House Freshman on the Republican side.

But what Harry Reid does not understand simply, the constitutional conservative grassroots movement called the Tea Party stands for this, they stand for fiscal responsibility, they stand for fiscal sanity. And the American people have to balance budgets in their homes. Our small business owners have to balance budgets to run their businesses. So obviously what Harry Reid calls obstructionism. I look at it, he stands for fiscal irresponsibilty. He stands for fiscal insanity!”

America's Finest True Conservative Texas Governor Rick Perry Suspends Campaign, Endorses Gingrich

Gov Rick Perry's Speech:

As I have stated numerous times on the campaign trail, this campaign has never been about the candidates.

I ran for President because I love America, our people and our freedom. But the mission is greater than the man.

As I have traveled across this great country: from New Hampshire to California, from Iowa to Florida, and to numerous states in between, I have discovered a tremendous purpose and resiliency in our people. They have never lost hope despite current circumstances.

They haven’t stopped believing in the promise of America or the American Dream.

Americans are down, but we can never be counted out. We are too great a people. What is broken in America is not our people, but our politics.

And what we need is a Washington that is humbler, with a federal government that is smaller so our people can live freer.

I entered this campaign offering a unique perspective: a governor who has led a large state leading the nation in job creation, an executive leader who has implemented conservative policies, a son of tenant farmers born with little more than a good name, but who has experienced the great possibilities of freedom.

But I have never believed that the cause of conservatism is embodied by any one individual. Our party, and the conservative philosophy, transcends any one individual. It is a movement of ideas that are greater than any one of us, and that will live beyond our years.

As a former Air Force pilot, I know we can’t lose track of the ultimate objective in carrying out our mission, and that objective is not only to defeat President Obama, but to replace him with a conservative leader who will bring about real change.

Our country is hurting with more than 13 million unemployed, nearly 50 million on food stamps and a debt of more than $15 trillion and growing.

We need bold, conservative leadership that will take on the entrenched interests and give the American People their country back.

I have always believed the mission is greater than the man.

As I have contemplated the future of this campaign, I have come to the conclusion that there is no viable path to victory for my candidacy in 2012.

Therefore, today I am suspending my campaign and endorsing Newt Gingrich for president.

I believe Newt is a conservative visionary who can transform our country.

We have had our differences, which campaigns inevitably bring out. And Newt is not perfect, but who among us is?

The fact is, there is forgiveness for those who seek God and I believe in the power of redemption, for it is a central tenet of my own Christian faith.

And I have no question Newt Gingrich has the heart of a conservative reformer, the ability to rally and captivate the conservative movement and the courage to tell the Washington interests to take a hike if it’s what is best for the country.

As a Texan, I have never shied away from a good fight, especially when the cause was right.

But as someone who has always admired a great Texas forefather -- Sam Houston -- I know when it is time for a “strategic retreat.”

So I will leave the trail, return home to Texas and wind down my 2012 campaign organization. And I will do so with pride knowing I gave myself fully to a cause worthy of our country.

And as I head home, I do so with the love of my life by my side, a woman who makes every day a good one when she is by my side, my wife Anita.

Thank you Anita for all you have done.

I also want to thank my son Griffin, my daughter Sydney, and my daughter-in-law Meredith for standing with us in this great effort.

With a good wife, three wonderful children, and a loving God in my life, things will be good no matter what the future holds.

I’m proud of the policies we put forward to the American people and believe they provide the right path forward for our party and our nation: overhauling Washington and returning power to state and local governments and to the people, creating energy jobs and energy security, cutting spending and eliminating unnecessary federal agencies and cutting taxes to a flat, fair 20 percent.

And I will continue to fight for these conservative reforms because the future of our country is at stake and the road we are traveling today – President Obama’s road - endangers our future.

I want to thank some wonderful individuals who have stood by my side in this state: Katon Dawson, Ambassador Wilkins, and a strong and good man serving you in Congress, Mick Mulvaney.

I want to thank all my supporters from across the country, in particular Governor Bobby Jindal, Steve Forbes and Governor Sam Brownback, as well as Senator Jim Inhofe, Congresswoman Candice Miller and Congressman Sam Graves.

And I want to say a special thanks to three distinguished veterans who have joined me on the campaign trail: Medal of Honor awardee and Navy SEAL Mike Thornton, Navy Cross recipient Marcus Luttrell and Purple Heart recipient, Marine Captain Dan Moran.

I began this race with a sense of calling.

I felt led into this arena to fight for the future of this country.

I feel no different today than I did then, knowing a calling never guarantees a particular destination, but a journey that tests one’s faith and character.

So now the journey leads us back to Texas, neither discouraged nor disenchanted, but instead rewarded for the experience and resolute to remain in the arena and in the service of a great nation.

Our country needs bold leadership and a real transformation.

We must rise to the occasion and elect a conservative champion to put our nation back on the right track.

And this I know, I am not done fighting for the cause of conservatism. In fact I have only begun to fight.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.


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

GREAT sadness today for my beloved country. America has a GREAT loss today with Rick Perry pulling out of the campaign. He is a man of Honor, integrity and the ONLY true conservative that has been running for President.

I ask one thing , do not ask me about supporting Newt Gingrich because I will not. There is no way I will vote for Newt and his Mistress wife to be in our White House.

We had a chance to set America back on track and too many so called conservatives chose to ignore the person that they had begged for at all the Tea Party rallies...a conservative that wanted small government , to get rid of Obamacare and all the other things Rick Perry would bring to his Presidency. Perry gave 100% and always have and always will. Texas is blessed to have this GREAT man as their Gov.

Every day supporting Rick Perry was a joy and a deep feeling America could be saved and rescued and brought back to the America we all have loved so much. It was an honor to support Rick Perry and I always will.

I love you my dear friends, you mean so very much to me. Pray for our country because 4 more years of Obama will end our country completely. His election will give him the go ahead to do more damage then imaginable.

I love you all! (((hug)))

Newt Gingrich: I'd Support A Muslim Running For President Only If They'd Commit To 'Give Up Sharia'

Newt Gingrich: I'd Support A Muslim Running For President Only If They'd Commit To 'Give Up Sharia'

Newt Gingrich told a South Carolina town hall audience on Tuesday that he would be open to seeing a Muslim-American run for president, as long as the candidate denounced Sharia law and didn't seek to impose his or her views on others.

At a town hall meeting in West Columbia, S.C., a man asked Gingrich if he would ever "support a Muslim-American running for president."

"Would you endorse...a Muslim-American, [who] could possibly be running for president, given that we had a woman running for president in Hillary Clinton, and we had a Jewish-American, in Joe Lieberman, running for vice president?" he asked.

"A truly modern person who happened to worship Allah would not be a threat," Gingrich replied. "A person who belonged to any kind of belief in Sharia, any kind of effort to impose that on the rest of us, would be a mortal threat."

In the past, Gingrich has repeatedly decried Sharia, a legal code derived from Islam, and called for a federal law to pre-emptively bar its use in any U.S. courts. He didn't soften his position on Tuesday, saying his support would be contingent on a candidate's willingness to denounce Sharia.

"I think it would depend entirely on whether they would commit in public to give up Sharia," he said, referencing his support for the bill and drawing cheers from listeners at the event. "If they're a modern person integrated into the modern world, and they're prepared to recognize all religions, that's one thing. On the other hand, if they're the Saudis, who demand that we respect them while they refuse to allow either a Jew or a Christian to worship in Saudi Arabia, that's something different."

Arrogrant Gingrich: ‘I Would Be Delighted’ With a Santorum Endorsement

Gingrich: ‘I Would Be Delighted’ With a Santorum Endorsement

The Wall Street Journal

FLORENCE, S.C. — Feeling confident after a well-received debate performance Monday night, Newt Gingrich said Tuesday he would be “delighted” if Rick Santorum dropped his presidential bid and endorsed his own.

Mr. Gingrich made clear that he is not asking Mr. Santorum to leave the race, but the remark reflects the boastfulness the former speaker often displays when he feels a sudden boost in momentum.

“I would be delighted if he decided to endorse me,” he told reporters here after being asked if Mr. Santorum should drop out. “I’m respectful that Rick has every right to run as long as he feels that’s what he should do. But from the standpoint of the conservative movement, consolidating into a Gingrich candidacy would, in fact, virtually guarantee victory on Saturday.”

Mr. Santorum essentially tied Mitt Romney in the Iowa caucuses and Mr. Gingrich for fourth place in last weeks’ New Hampshire primary. But Mr. Gingrich often says is the only Republican contender who can run a national campaign besides front-runner Mr. Romney. “I don’t think Santorum could do any of that,” he said. “It’s not because he’s not a nice guy, he just doesn’t have the knowledge that I do.”

Mr. Gingrich also touted his skills as a debater, and said, “It’s fairly obvious that last night some things really struck a chord with the American people.” Among other things, he appeared to be referring to his spat with panelist Juan Williams over whether low-income children should do janitorial work in schools.

Speaking at a town hall in a local art gallery, he told an audience member here that should he debate President Barack Obama, “I don’t want to bloody his nose, I want to knock him out.”

Asked why Republicans should view him as the most electable anti-Romney candidate after his disappointing finishes in both Iowa and New Hampshire, Mr. Gingrich said because “we’re in South Carolina.”

Rick Perry Strong and Awesome in Debate Tells Mitt Romney to Release His Tax Returns (Video)

Rick Perry Strong and Awesome in Debate Tells Mitt Romney to Release His Tax Returns

Gives strong, confident performance at South Carolina Fox News Debate

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Texas Gov. Rick Perry stood out as a solid conservative and the only true Washington and Wall Street outsider left in the GOP race, and decried the Obama administration war on South Carolina and other states’ efforts to pass Voter ID, immigration and other laws and policies.

“This administration is out of control,” Gov. Perry said. “The state of Texas is under assault by federal government. South Carolina is at war with this federal government and with this administration. What this Justice Department has done, not only have they taken them to task on Voter ID, they’ve also taken them to task on their immigration law, and then the most egregious thing is the National Labor Relations Board coming into a right-to-work state and telling the state of South Carolina, ‘We’re not going to let a private company come in here.’ That is irresponsible, I will suggest to you it’s unconstitutional, and when I’m the president of the United States, the states are going to have substantially more rights to take care of their business and not be forced by the EPA, or by the Justice Department for that matter, to do things that are against the will of the people.”

During tonight’s debate, sponsored by Fox News, The Wall Street Journal and the South Carolina Republican Party, Gov. Perry laid out his commitment to overhauling Washington, cutting taxes to a flat and fair 20 percent and sparking American job creation. The debate highlighted Gov. Perry’s experience creating more than a million net new jobs during the last 11 years as the governor of the state of Texas, which is the 13th largest economy in the world.

In response to the bickering between the other candidates on the stage, Gov. Perry said, “This is a great example of the insiders that are having a conversation up here, and the fact of the matter is this: Washington, D.C., needs to leave the states alone and let the states decide this issues and don’t do it from Washington, D.C.”

Over the last several months, Gov. Perry has traveled the country sharing his plans to get America working again and emphasizing his commitment to bringing the change the American people want to see to Washington, D.C., as president. The governor’s Uproot and Overhaul Washington plan establishes a part-time Congress, and calls for cutting congressional sessions, staffs and salaries in half. The plan puts an end to bailouts and earmarks, and is designed to stop the out-of-control Washington spending that has put our nation more than $15 trillion in debt.

Gov. Perry also touted his Cut, Balance and Grow plan, which creates a simpler, flatter and fairer 20 percent personal and corporate tax rate; reigns in federal spending; and calls for a federal Balanced Budget Amendment. He has also laid out an Energizing American Jobs and Security plan designed to take advantage of our domestic energy resources, making the cost of electricity and fuel cheaper and more predictable, revitalizing manufacturing and reducing our country’s dangerous dependence on hostile foreign oil sources.

“We need to cut the tax rate down to where people feel confident that they can risk their capital and have a return on their investment,” Gov. Perry said. “That’s the reason that I’ve laid out a simple and flat tax of 20 percent with their home mortgage deduction and charitable deduction and local taxes deducted, get rid of capital gains tax, get rid of the tax on Social Security benefits and then take 20 percent of that and mail your check in. Even Timothy Geithner can get his taxes in on time with that type of a system.

“Getting America back to work again — that’s what I’ve done for 11 years as the governor of the 13th largest economy in the world. A million jobs that have been created in my state because we have created that climate where job creators know they can go out and risk their capital and have a return on their investment.

“As the president of the United States, that’s what I’m going to do. Walk into Washington, D.C., work towards a Balanced Budget Amendment to the United States Constitution and work to make Congress a part-time body so they stay less time in Washington, D.C., go back home and get a real job like everybody else has, and live under the laws that they pass.”

Rick Perry is the best candidate we have had in decades ( since Reagan) and the media is trying to destroy him and give us Romney.

Yes his first few debates were a problem, but since then he has been doing great. The Huckabee Froum type debates he has always been awesome with. And the other kind like the one last night he has getting so strong it is a joy to see happening.

Here is a photo talking to a WW11 Veteran.

Rick Perry Says Obama Administration Rhetoric about U.S. Marines Urinating on Dead Taliban Fighters is “Way over the Top” and Shows “Disdain for the Military” ~ Thank you Gov. Perry!!

Rick Perry talking to CNN’s Candy Crowley where he was asked how he would handle the controversy over a video showing U.S. Marines urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban fighters. Perry said while it was a “stupid mistake” by “18, 19 year-old kids,” to “call it a criminal act” is “over-the-top rhetoric” that shows the “disdain for the military” of “this administration.”

The Meeting That Won't Change The World ~ Important Read About Electoin!!


To The Point news

by Dr. Jack Wheeler (The Wall Street Journal called Wheeler "the originator of the Reagan Doctrine". The Washington Post called him "The Indiana Jones of the Right")

At least it was cordial.

But the 150 or so "movement conservatives" gathered at Paul Pressler's this weekend (1/13-14) were a fractured lot.

Maybe 10% were for Perry. Almost all of them were against Romney. Well, sort of. Caveat below.

There was an official Romney guy there who explained that "You'll either work with us now or work with us later, but you'll all have to get on Mitt's train, because we have the money and the organization, so there's no stopping us."

This did not go over well. It just made everyone more determined than ever to do whatever it takes to stop Mittens. How to do so is what the group could not agree on.

I'm not going to name names, as I was asked not to. Just about every big name conservative you've heard of was there. A number of them didn't come out for any particular candidate. Others said they were all in for Perry at the start, and just couldn't overcome his blunders.

When the case was made that Perry was the only candidate who actually understood the Constitution and the power of the 10th Amendment, the only one who was not a big government guy, the most successful governor in the country who has a rock solid record of job creation and conservative judicial appointments - they just didn't care. I want that to sink in.

These conservative leaders really do not care about jobs, people hurting like the Great Depression, America's economy falling into an abyss. All they care about is "the family as the fabric of society," and other Rick Santorum social conservative platitudes. So a majority of them voted for Santorum. They could care less that Santorum would not do anything to reduce metastasizing government, much less castrate it (like Perry would), or has not the slightest trace of executive experience of any kind, government or private.

When asked one-on-one why they were going for Santorum when they knew he had no money, no organization, and stood not a ghost of a chance to win the nomination, the truth came out:

"If we unify behind Santorum, it will force Romney to pick him as his running mate - for he'll know that's the only way to get our support in the general (election in November)."

That's the slimy deal behind this. They'll go for Romney if he goes for Santorum on his ticket. Should we call them Judas Conservatives?

We suspected this all along: Santorum is a stalking horse for Romney. A vote for Santorum is a vote for Romney. Folks in South Carolina need to know this.

The cynical ploy, however, will not work - and not just because the Romney guy rolled his eyes when told about it (Romney has his heart set on Marco Rubio). It's because there was no unity at this meeting.

The Drudge headline "Social conservatives back Santorum," is a lie. A majority of the folks there chose Santorum - but there was no agreement that everyone would now get behind their choice. Some will continue backing Perry. A much larger number are now committed to Gingrich as the Not Romney. Others are going to focus on doing whatever they can to see no candidate gets a majority of delegates for a brokered convention.

A brokered convention, by the way, is how Sarah Palin could get the nomination. Or Rick Perry.

So there you have it.

This was a meeting that won't change the world, that won't change anything, except to marginalize these "movement" conservative leaders who really don't care about the fate of America.

They say Perry blew his chance. They have blown theirs.

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

Perry is the only candidate that has current experience in creating an environment for job growth in a bad economy and plans to do so. * Cut, Balance, and Grow • Energizing American Jobs & Security.Supports a flat tax, a balanced budget, job creation, domestic energy, a secure border and get America working again, He is a conservative of conviction, not of convenience. Has signed 6 balanced budget during his term as governor and the only one to do so since WW11.

Huntsman Drops Out: Is Set To Endorse Romney, Whom He Called ‘Unelectable’

Huntsman Drops Out: Is Set To Endorse Romney, Whom He Called ‘Unelectable’

by Alex Seitz-Wald

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R) informed his advisers today that he is dropping out of the presidential race. After his third place finish in New Hampshire’s primary, Huntsman declared that he had a “ticket to ride” but it appears the be on a bus owned by GOP front-runner Mitt Romney, whom Huntsman is now expected to endorse. “The governor and his family, at this point in the race, decided it was time for Republicans to rally around a candidate who could beat Barack Obama and turn around the economy,” Huntsman adviser Matt David said in a statement. “That candidate is Gov. Mitt Romney.”

While the statement was not an official endorsement, CBS reports “Huntsman is expected to throw his endorsement to current front-runner Mitt Romney.”

Last week, Huntsman told CNBC that Romney was making himself “completely unelectable.”

Huntsman’s decision may have been influenced by the fact that a powerful group of social conservatives called on conservative to coalesce around Rick Santorum as the anti-Romney candidate this weekend.

USNews Joins Club For Growth in Praising Rick Perry's Economic Policy as the Best and Trumps Gingrich, Santorum as Top Conservative Standing

USNews Joins Club For Growth in Praising Rick Perry's Economic Policy as the Best and Trumps Gingrich, Santorum as Top Conservative Standing

US News

First, tax policy, where Rick Perry comes out on top. His plan is far superior to both of his competitors for the conservative crown and, frankly, ranks above everyone

~ snipet~

On spending, the big test is support for or opposition to House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan's budget. Despite the doomsday crowd howling about "savage" cuts, the Ryan budget simply slows the growth rate of federal spending. This chart by Ph.D. economist Dan Mitchell of the Cato Institute says it all. As readers will note, the slope of the spending line continues to climb under our current path and Rep. Ryan's blueprint. On this criterion, we see Perry, and Santorum near the top. Former Speaker Gingrich, however, comes in dead last with his characterization of Ryan's budget as "right-wing social engineering."


On net, Gov. Rick Perry seems the best of the bunch on both spending and taxes. Finally, a compelling reason for him to stay in the race.

OMG ! CBS News: 11 More Solyndras In Obama Energy Program

CBS News takes a look at 11 more Solyndras that were part of Obama's Energy Program (January 13, 2012)

There are at least another 11 Solyndras in Obama’s backyard just ready to crash.
The Obama Administration said they knew that several of the companies would fail.
They built in $2.4 billion into the program for potential failures.

Solyndra was not an isolated incident. There are several green energy projects that are going to fail.
CBS reported:

Solar panel maker Solyndra received a $528 million Energy Department loan in 2009 – and went bankrupt last year. The government’s risky investment strategy didn’t stop there, as a CBS News investigation has uncovered a pattern of cases of the government pouring your tax dollars into clean energy.

Take Beacon Power — a green energy storage company. We were surprised to learn exactly what the Energy Department knew before committing $43 million of your tax dollars.

Documents obtained by CBS News show Standard and Poor’s had confidentially given the project a dismal outlook of “CCC-plus.”

Asked whether he’d put his personal money into Beacon, economist Peter Morici replied, “Not on purpose.”

“It’s, it is a junk bond,” Morici said. “But it’s not even a good junk bond. It’s well below investment grade.”

Was the Energy Department investing tax dollars in something that’s not even a good junk bond? Morici says yes.

“This level of bond has about a 70 percent chance of failing in the long term,” he said.

In fact, Beacon did go bankrupt two months ago and it’s unclear whether taxpayers will get all their money back. And the feds made other loans when public documents indicate they should have known they could be throwing good money after bad.

It’s been four months since the FBI raided bankrupt Solyndra. It received a half-billion in tax dollars and became a political lightning rod, with Republicans claiming it was a politically motivated investment.

CBS News counted 12 clean energy companies that are having trouble after collectively being approved for more than $6.5 billion in federal assistance. Five have filed for bankruptcy: The junk bond-rated Beacon, Evergreen Solar, SpectraWatt, AES’ subsidiary Eastern Energy and Solyndra.

Federal Judge Rules Santorum, Perry, Gingrich, Huntsman Cannot be Added to Virginia’s GOP Primary Ballot

Federal Judge Rules Santorum, Perry, Gingrich, Huntsman Cannot be Added to Virginia’s GOP Primary Ballot Only Mitt Romney and Ron Paul qualified for the ballot:

The Washington Post

federal judge denied a request Friday to add four presidential candidates to Virginia’s Republican primary ballot.

U.S. District Judge John A. Gibney Jr. indicated he thought a provision requiring candidates to only use state residents to gather signatures was unconstitutional, but none of the candidates had collected the required 10,000 regardless.

State officials told him Friday that they did not have time to print and mail absentee ballots by Jan. 21 in order to get them out 45 days before the primary as required by federal law.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former senator Rick Santorum (Pa.), former House speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.) and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman failed to qualify for the Virginia ballot, and filed a lawsuit against the State Board of Elections and the state GOP to challenge the qualification rules.

Only former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) qualified

Virginia’s ballot-access rules are considered the toughest in the nation. Candidates must collect 10,000 signatures, with at least 400 from each of the congressional districts.

Virginia, an increasingly important swing state, will hold its presidential primary on Super Tuesday, March 6.

Our Media and Taliban Leaders Condemned The Video of US Marines pi$$ing on three dead Taliban fighters ~ Apparently It is OK Though When Taliban Behead Our Troops!

Panetta assures Afghans of full probe into video

Here is the link to the full article.......CLICK HERE.

The Taliban is upset with the video even though they use snuff videos of attacks on US Marines as a recruiting tool.
The AP reported:

The reaction from Afghanistan was angry.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the video as “completely inhumane.” The Afghan Defense Ministry called it “shocking.” And the Taliban issued a statement accusing U.S. forces of committing numerous “indignities” against the Afghan people.

“First they killed the Afghans with mortars, and they then urinated on their bodies,” Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said. “We strongly condemn this inhumane action by the wild American soldiers.”


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

So what! Our troops are awesome! Good for them!! The R.O.E.’s they have had to be under from the vile Obama, no wonder our troops get ticked off and frustrated. The community organizer Obama has not clue what our troops are up against and could care less about them. He is not worth one ounce of respect from our troops.
And what does the Taliban do to our troops? They behead them, cut the ones up in little pieces they have kidnapped. But oh that’s right the media does not care about that, they only want to make a big deal about what our troops do. sheesh!

I realize our troops are supposed to be good and good examples of America. BUT I am so fed up with how Obama and his ilk have treated our troops. And the Code Pink people etc. holding signs saying Kill the Officers, Kill our troops. Enough!

from September 2009.......Gov. Perry Announces Highly Skilled Ranger Recon Teams as Texas Efforts to Enhance Border Security


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

As Tom said, "How many governors besides Rick Perry would OK this?"

Perry takes a stand and knows there has to be a strong response and help for his citizens of Texas. Don’t shoot at Texas Rangers unless you plan on meeting your maker really soon! Gov. Perry says what he means - and means what he says. Thank God for Rick Perry!

He said a single shot against a U.S. law enforcement officer is "one too many."

"We are going to use overwhelming force. We're going to use tactics ... You shoot a law enforcement officer, you're going to get return fire," he said.

Officers then saw the raft full of drugs, he said. As they approached the raft, large, jagged rocks flew from the Mexican side of the river, wounding two game wardens. The rocks were followed by four to six gunshots.

Texas Rangers, state game wardens and U.S. Border Patrol agents, operating a unified "Ranger Reconnaissance" mission, fired back big time, spraying some 300 rounds.

"They encountered force, and we will appropriately respond to that force, and we will go home at the end of the day, and we will protect ourselves, and we will protect our citizens," TPW Col. Peter Flores said. "That's not negotiable."

These are the actions of Governor Perry's Texas Ranger Interdiction Teams.

....Thank you Tom for sending this to me.

New Book Tells How Barack Obama Did NOT Want To Take Photos With The US Troops In Iraq

Barack Obama tells US troops, “You guys make a pretty good photo op.”


Buzz Feed

A new book by Michael Hastings, The Operators, reveals that Barack Obama did not want to take photos with the US troops in Iraq.

After the talk, out of earshot from the soldiers and diplomats, he starts to complain. He starts to act very un-Obamalike, according to a U.S. embassy official who helped organize the trip in Baghdad.
He’s asked to go out to take a few more pictures with soldiers and embassy staffers. He’s asked to sign copies of his book. “He didn’t want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it,” a State Department official tells me. “Look, I was excited to meet him. I wanted to like him. Let’s just say the scales fell from my eyes after I did. These are people over here who’ve been fighting the war, or working every day for the war effort, and he didn’t want to take fu*king pictures with them?”

Obama Responsible For Unprecedented 1 Million Workers Loss of Jobs

Nearly 1 Million Workers Vanished Under Obama


Initial jobless claims unexpectedly jumped by 24,000 last week to 399,000 as more workers lost their jobs, the Labor Department said Thursday. At the same time, the economy continues to lose workers.

In the 30 months since the recession officially ended, nearly 1 million people have dropped out of the labor force — they aren’t working, and they aren’t looking — according to data from Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. In the past two months, the labor force shrank by 170,000.

This is virtually unprecedented in past economic recoveries, at least since the BLS has kept detailed records. In the past nine recoveries, the labor force had climbed an average 3.5 million by this point, according to an IBD analysis of the BLS data.

"Given weak job prospects, many would-be workers dropped out of (or never entered) the labor force," noted Heidi Shierholz of the Economic Policy Institute in her analysis of the BLS jobs report issued last Friday. "That reduces the measured unemployment rate but does not represent real improvement."

According to the BLS, the "labor force participation rate" — the ratio of the number of people either working or looking for work compared with the entire working-age population — is now 64%, down from 65.7% when the recession ended in June 2009. That's the lowest level since women began entering the workforce in far greater numbers several decades ago.

If you adjust for this drop, the unemployment rate would be close to 11%, instead of the official 8.5%.

Sarah Palin Says She Agrees With Rick Perry's Criticism of Romney and Bain and Says Romney Should Prove His Claim of Creating 100,000 Jobs

Palin To Romney: Show Us Your Tax Returns, Proove You Created 100K Jobs


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

Hannity tries to get her to put down Perry. She'll have no part of it. He tries to get her to say the criticism of Romney's time at Bain is wrong. She would have no part of it. No doubt from this interview that Sarah Palin is no fan of Willard the liberal. Great interview.

She also talked about her disgust with Michelle Obama after Sean asked her about Michelle Obama.

You can always identify the people who REALLY would dismantle the DC gravy train. The media hates them.

Sarah is one of them. And so is Rick Perry.

Romney calls himself the master job creator, 100,000 jobs. Prove it! Romney has has also refused to show his tax returns or open his books

Well, all of a sudden, Romney has backed off that number after Perry has pounded him.

We need a Leader who believes in this and can lead the way.

It may take baby steps to get it done but steps we must take and we have to start where we stand.

I’m Fed Up. Perry is Fed Up too and is trying to do something about it.

He said that he was not going to “nibble around the edges” but instead was going to go at it with a sledgehammer.
I stand with Perry and believe he can take the reigns that will lead us back to our Freedom, Liberty and being the Great America we once were.

No More Go-along-to-Get-along

Big Government Blog

by Gov. Rick Perry

In politics, as in life, there can be an overwhelming temptation to go along to get along; to be a team player; to do the easy thing even when it’s not the right thing.

For far too long, insiders from both parties have played these games. Talk up fiscal responsibility, but spend big. Talk about a federal government that fulfills its basic responsibilities, but then vote to expand it beyond all recognition so that it cannot possibly do so. Talk about doing what’s right, but then do what the establishment wants instead.

Americans deserve better—and they deserve to get to choose something better this year. In 2012, Americans have the opportunity to decisively move away from big government, built up over years and years by both parties in Washington, D.C.

As I said in Sunday’s NBC/Facebook debate, President Obama has thrown gasoline on the fire, but let’s be honest: The bonfire was raging well before Obama ever left Chicago.

Policies and spending served up by Washington, D.C. insiders, in several notable instances designed and written by Wall Street insiders to suit their needs, not ours, caused and then exacerbated this situation. In too many cases, these advocates of big spending and bad policy have used their positions of power to enrich themselves, both while in office and once outside of it. Republicans have been complicit in this scheme, just as Democrats have.

It is time for it to end.

To accomplish that, Americans will need to seek out genuine outsiders prepared to make the powers-that-be uncomfortable by pursuing policies that will put a stop to insiders’ behavior-as-usual.

As the lone conservative outsider on the ballot, I have a clear plan to overhaul the Washington status quo.

Andy Roth, Vice President of the Club for Growth, said it well earlier this week: “Rick Perry, I think, has one of the best if not the best plans. He’s got a ‘Cut, Balance and Grow’ plan where he wants to institute a Balanced Budget Amendment and cap spending at 18 percent, and then he wants to cut taxes all over the place. That would just really be a pro-growth boon. It’d be eliminating capital gains, lowering corporate tax rates and personal tax rates down to 20 percent. Very, very strong plan.”

For many Republicans, a balanced budget amendment is little more than easy political posturing when they know Democrats will not allow one to be passed. In earlier years, when Republicans exercised 100 percent control over the purse strings, they were not for constraining spending. In fact, they were in favor of as much big government as possible, so long as the beltway establishment “blessed” that big government as serving “conservative” ends.

As Roth noted, Rick Santorum “was a prolific earmarker,” Newt Gingrich “supported Medicare Part D, which expanded entitlements in a huge way,” and Mitt Romney “actually deserves to be in last place on this because it’s very uninspired ideas that he has. He barely wants to tinker around with the tax code…”

Voters have a clear choice between big government “conservatives” and a true limited government conservative.

I am a conservative outsider committed to seriously overhauling Washington, ending the IRS as we know it by cutting taxes to a fair and flat rate, and stopping job killing regulations dead in their tracks.

But to accomplish these things, one thing has to happen first: Americans must reject those who are part and parcel of the problem at the polls – the Washington and establishment insiders. We have that opportunity to really overhaul Washington and elect an authentic conservative in 2012. Let’s take it.

Obama is reportedly planning to release from Guantanamo Bay detention center — and their wrap sheets just might (or not) shock you. The Obama administration is allegedly considering the release of these senior Taliban leaders as part of a deal to bring the militant Islamist group to engage in peace talks.

The Shocking List of Gitmo Detainees Obama Plans to Release in Deal with Taliban

The Blaze

Washington Post opinion writer Marc A. Theissen has published a list of the Taliban leaders President Obama is reportedly planning to release from Guantanamo Bay detention center — and their wrap sheets just might (or not) shock you.

The Obama administration is allegedly considering the release of these senior Taliban leaders as part of a deal to bring the militant Islamist group to engage in peace talks. According to Theissen, if Obama does in fact proceed with the release, he will do “tremendous harm” to U.S. national security “and to his prospects for reelection this fall.”

Theissen writes:

To understand why, consider the individuals White House is considering setting free. Last year WikiLeaks released a trove of documents it dubbed the “Gitmo Files” with assessments of hundreds of Guantanamo detainees — including the five Taliban leaders reportedly under consideration for release.

The following is the U.S. military’s assessment of the detainees:

Mullah Mohammed Fazl, deputy defense minister. Fazl is “wanted by the UN for possible war crimes while serving as a Taliban Army Chief of Staff and … was implicated in the murder of thousands of Shiites in northern Afghanistan during the Taliban reign.” He has “operational associations with significant al-Qaida and other extremist personnel,” was “involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking,” and is so senior in the Taliban hierarchy that he once threatened the Taliban’s supreme leader, Mullah Omar. Military officials assess that Fazl wields “considerable influence throughout the northern region of Afghanistan and his influence continued even after his capture” adding, “If released, [Fazl] would likely rejoin the Taliban and establish ties with anti-Coalition militias (ACM) participating in hostilities against US and Coalition forces in Afghanistan.”

Non Conservative Ron Paul To Everyone But Mitt: Drop Out ~ Ron Paul you are depriving some village of its idiot!

Rep. Ron Paul, whose supporters include liberals and democrats, told conservative candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry, to get out of the race tonight. Paul believes he is the candidate who should take on Mitt Romney.


Rep. Ron Paul’s campaign called on the rest of the Republican field to drop out of the race and unite behind him in order to defeat Mitt Romney.
“We urge Ron Paul’s opponents who have been unsuccessfully trying to be the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney to unite by getting out of the race and uniting behind Paul’s candidacy,” campaign chair Jesse Benton said in a statement.


Wild Thing's comment......

From ome to Ron Paul: Drop dead!

So now we can add arrogance to the known Paul traits of lying, crackpot, anti-Constitution, anti-US Defense, Truther, racist, and liberal.

Democrat Frank Luntz Caught On Camera Bashing Bachmann and Perry

Frank Luntz was caught on camera , “Michele Bachmann is Glenn Close from Fatal Attraction… And Rick Perry is a George Bush without the intellect.”

Wild Thing's comment......

Dial Boy is holding court in a lobby at the top of his lungs UNTIL he notices cameras! THEN he says he holding a PRIVATE conversation! Luntz is a Putz!
Luntz is a REGISTERED Democrat. For REAL! Like Judge Andrew Napolitano.
Little by little, we are learning that “fair and balanced” holds no more truth than “Change We Can Believe In.”

Luntz can bash all he wants but imo he took the chance to be taped and he would have to be stupid not to realize it. It sure proves how FOX has changed, I hate to see this happening. The old FOX would have a fit with him for this kind of thing and knowing it would effect their so called fair and balanced.

Club for Growth Says Presidential Candidate Rick Perry's Economic Plan Is "THE Best" and " "massively pro-growth"


Andy Roth with Club for Growth says...." Rick Perry has the BEST Plans, if not THE BEST PLANS for our economy.


WINNER --Rick Perry gets an A grade ("has one of the best if not the best plan")

Ron Paul-- gets a very good grade (for what he wants to do)
Rick Santorum/ Newt Gingrich--- get "C" grades ( bad past records)
Jon Huntsman-- gets Incomplete grade (his plan is incomplete)
Mitt Romney--- gets " worst fail " grade ( Andy Roth says.... "he deserves to be in last place" )


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

"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."

This is a huge endorsement so to speak. It is not like an offical endosement, but good enough. They take their break downs seriously and a lot of people listen to them. The video is fantastic, if you get a chance to watch it.

" The Choice" by Gov.Rick Perry !~ This is an excellent article!

The Choice

RedState Blog

by Gov. Rick Perry

This election—including the Republican primary contest— is about a fundamental question in American politics: We have an opportunity to decisively turn away from big government in Washington. Do we want to take it?

Conservatives across the country are fed up with President Obama’s Washington approach to governance. Massive, budget-busting, deficit spending (except on defense, where he proposes cuts that are downright dangerous). Bailouts. An ever-mounting national debt. A federal government that has reached its tentacles further into Americans’ lives, by virtue of Obamacare with its noxious individual mandate to purchase health insurance. Excessive, bureaucratically dictated, job-killing environmental regulation. Dodd-Frank. The actions of the National Labor Relations Board, the Federal Communications Commission, and countless other agencies. A President who has engaged in offensive recess appointments to pay back his political allies ahead of a race he could well lose. And so on.

Almost universally, Republicans hold in contempt the real-life “ends” of the Obama administration’s policies, though admittedly there are those self-described conservatives who have favored (and even authored) Obamacare-like approaches to health care and policies like cap-and-trade. To us, those ends look decidedly liberal and reminiscent of European social democracies, and out of step with our vision for America.

Yet some conservatives, while rejecting the “ends” have not yet fully rejected the means, despite the fact that many Americans—and not just conservatives or libertarians— have reached the conclusion that the federal government has just become too big and has its fingers in too many pies, with the predictable negative real-world consequences for the rest of us.

They argue that a big intrusive government is fine, desirable even, so long as it pursues “conservative” goals, which frequently when scrutinized are neither conservative nor worthy. Earmarks are okay, as long as they are directed by “conservatives.” Expansions of government like Medicare Part D and No Child Left Behind were acceptable because they represented “Republican” policy. Congress spending all its time in Washington, DC, and legislating madly is fine, so long as the congressmen are Republicans and they are pursuing something that the Washington, DC, establishment has deemed “conservative.” It’s okay to have a government so big, so unaccountable and playing with so much money that serving Members of Congress can get rich while on the job, and once off the job, they can get even richer by becoming high-powered corporate consultants before skipping over to K Street itself, to try to grow government and spend even more of your money.

To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, we have reached a critical juncture at which government is not the solution to our problems; government is the problem.

Big government conservatives will never truly overhaul Washington because they need the status quo in place to accomplish their objectives. They don’t want to rebuild the machine; they simply want to change the people pulling the levers.

But that is not what the American people want. There is such deep and widespread discontent that nothing short of a complete overhaul will satisfy their justifiable demands.

The American people expect changes equal to their concern, which is the highest it’s been in at least a generation, and I am the only candidate with a vision that is as strong and sweeping as the public is angry.

While others promise to tinker with the status quo, I am the outsider who will overhaul Washington. Others talk about trimming the bureaucracy; I will eliminate the Departments of Commerce, Energy and Education, gut the activist EPA, freeze bureaucrat salaries and make Congress part-time. Others talk about cleaning up the tax code; I say let Americans throw the whole thing out and pay a simple flat tax instead. Others talk about creating jobs; I alone have worked with the private sector to create more than 1 million jobs while the rest of the country lost 2 million jobs.

This is what the 2012 election is about with the Republican primary process ongoing, and it is what the 2012 general election should be about, too.

Do we want to stick with a big government approach that may, if self-described “conservatives” are in power, deliver up conservative ends, even though that same big government will be used by liberals to advance progressivism the second they get their hands on the reins of power?

Or do we want to try something different—making Washington, DC, as inconsequential as possible in our lives and scaling back the federal government to focus on legitimate national priorities like defense and border security, and leaving other matters like education, for example, to the states and localities?

This is the choice that I believe faces us, as more primaries approach and as Republicans select a nominee. Our answer to the question will determine the outcome of the nomination battle, and it will also determine whether this choice is ultimately presented to the American people in November.

I, for one, hope it will be. America cannot abide another four years of big, intrusive government, no matter its philosophical goals. It’s time for a change. That entails Americans getting a choice.

Rick Perry At the Debates Over the Weekend ~ Excellent

Unlike Romney, Rick Perry is not going to hide behind politically correct language when describing Obama. He says in this clip that not only is Obama a Socialist, but that our founding fathers didn’t want America to be a socialist nation.


Perry jokes about remembering 'cuts'. hahha love how he did this. it was a lighthearted moment for everyone. Perry's got personality plus. Cute and lovable. I am so glad to see him stressing what is important about himself- he's got executive experience like no one else.

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

Both debates this last weekend Perry did great. I wish they would have called on him more, but I understand they only do that when the candidate is in the top of the polling.

Rick Perry Picks Up Key Endorsement in South Carolina

Rick Perry attacks Obama and picks up key endorsement in South Carolina

Washington Post

GREENVILLE, S.C. — Texas Gov. Rick Perry continued to barrel across the Palmetto State on Saturday, picking up a prized endorsement here in the heart of South Carolina’s most conservative and evangelical region.

More than 400 curious partisans packed Tommy’s Country Ham House to check out the latest Republican presidential hopeful — the largest crowd assembled at this iconic political eggs-bacon-and-grits joint since another Texas governor, George W. Bush, was running for president in 2000.

As Perry walked through the restaurant with his wife, Anita, he made clear that his hopes of winning the Republican nomination rest with South Carolina. “We’re going to campaign in South Carolina with fervor,” Perry said, calling the state “a conservative beacon on the eastern seaboard of this country. It is truly a bright light.”

Fortunately for Perry, one of the state’s most influential Republicans, former state House speaker David Wilkins, who served as Bush’s ambassador to Canada, embraced him here.

Wilkins ticked through the bullet points of Perry’s biography: married with two grown children, a Southerner, a conservative, started his political career at age 34, served in uniform, attended a land-grant university.

“I’m sure all of you have many things in common with Governor Perry, and that’s the point,” Wilkins said. “Governor Perry is one of us. He is someone that we can relate to, he is someone that we can connect with, he is someone that we can believe in. And Governor, South Carolina is a small state, but we have a big heart. We want our government to do a few things — a few things — and do them well, and then get out of the way.”

At that, shouts of “Amen!” rang out among the crowd.

Perry is aggressively building a campaign organization in South Carolina, home to the first primary in the South, where evangelical Christians make up a sizable portion of the Republican primary electorate. Perry, who laces his comments with references to his faith, is expected to do well here, although Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who also appeals to evangelical voters, has been making an aggressive push, as well.

Perry secured a slew of endorsements from state legislators and other South Carolina Republican figures in recent days, advisers said, and plans to begin rolling some of them out as early as next week.

Perry is wrapping up an eight-day campaign swing this weekend that began with his official announcement last Saturday in Charleston, S.C. He planned to return home to Austin on Saturday afternoon, and aides said he plans to spend the next week raising money and building his campaign organization. Perry may not return to the campaign trail until the following week.

At the Ham House here, Perry spoke for only five minutes but left no doubt about what his campaign would be about.

“We may talk about a hundred different issues by being asked different questions, but let me tell ya, every time I’m going to come back to the issue that is most important to Americans, and that is, ‘How are we going to get this country workin’ again, sir?’ ” Perry said.

“The answer is: We’re gonna cut the taxes, we’re gonna lower the regulations, we’re gonna get the lawyers out of our business, and we’re gonna get America back workin’ again.”

Perry lashed out at President Obama, as he has at each stop on his busy campaign schedule over the past week.

“The Obama administration recently referred to food stamps as economic stimulus,” Perry said. “Food stamps are not the solution. They are a symptom of a problem, Mr. President. There’s too many people out of work. Most Americans don’t yearn to be dependent on government. They want economic freedom. Economic freedom comes from work and wages, not welfare.”

Perry said his campaign would be about change.

“It is time for change,” he said. “Not rhetoric of change, but a record of change. We will get America workin’ again. God bless you.”

In a short news conference after his final event of the day, Perry criticized Obama’s handling of troop deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq.

“We need to be thoughtful before we ever go into an area that America’s interests are truly being impacted, and then we need to start having a thoughtful conversation with those commanders in the field about how to be bringing our young men and women back,” Perry said. “Look, I think the president made a huge mistake by signaling the enemy that we’re going to leave at a particular time. That’s bad public policy, but more importantly it put our kids in harm’s way.”

He also defended his comments earlier in the week about global warming.

“I just happen to believe that the earth’s temperature has been moving up and down for millenniums now, and there are enough scientists out there now that are skeptical about the reasons for it,” he said. “And I happen to be one of those that are skeptical that for us to spend billions of dollars on a theory that is not proven, and that you have skeptical science against that, is not in America’s best interest.”

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

People love to meet him, and their response always is so great.

Santorum compares holding elective office to military service ~ This Is Unforgivable What He Said!

Santorum compares holding elective office to military service ~ This Is Unforgivable What He Said!


Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum compared his service in government to serving in the military during a town hall meeting on Thursday.

“I grew up around veterans, I grew up around, you know, folks who loved their country and served their country,” he said, answering a question about what propelled him into government service.

“I didn’t see working in government service and being in politics as anything but serving your country, and doing in some ways — in a civilian sense — what a lot of folks did in a military sense. And I saw it as something that is honorable and good to do.”

“The rest of the country doesn’t function unless the government keeps us free,” he added, “and we need people in politics just like we need people in uniform to do that.”

Santorum has been criticized by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for being a career politician. In 1990, at age 32, Santorum was elected to the House of Representatives. He entered the Senate after the 1994 Republican Revolution, where he served until losing to now-Democratic Sen. Bob Casey in 2006.

Santorum’s father served in the military during World War II, but the senator never served in the military.


Wild Thing's comment......

Sorry to any of you that support this man for President. THIS what Santorum has said is unforgivable and there is NO way in hell he can talk his way out of it. NO way!
There is NO comparison to those that have served and someone working in our government....a politician or even a President. Nothing on earth can compare to it.
No one forced him to say what he did, no one put the words in his mouth.

It's Time For RICK PERRY If You Want To Restore America and A Fiscal and Social Conservative


From Rush Limbaugh's page: "Perry is the only true small government conservative left in the race. He doesn't support ethanol subsidies (or other government subsidies), which cost him some support in IA, which settled for "big government" c...onservative Santorum. But the Tea Party supporters really ought to do their homework and get behind Perry, who is truly our last, best hope of reigning in an out-of-control federal government."


It's Time For RICK PERRY If You Want To Restore America and A Fiscal and Social Conservative

by Chrissie aka Wild Thing

Seeing the polls, fixed or not on Romney and how the media, Ann Coulter, CNN, and yes evwen FOX have been pushing Romney and Newt on all of us.

It furiates me that people who claim to be Conservative are so quick to throw one of the most successful Conservative Governors in the country under the bus and not listen at all to his actual record of job creation and economic growth. That is what this country needs the most right now!!! Jobs and economic growth!!!!

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said at the Huckabee debate: "Perry is the one that lived up to being the 10th Amendment Purist Tonight", and the and the entire panel agreed.

It's sad that more people don't know what a Constitutional genius Perry is. If folks would take the time to read his book, Fed Up, they would get that he is the only hope we have to take Big Government and send it PACKING.

In April 2009 and again in 2011, Perry endorsed a resolution supporting state... sovereignty, under the argument that the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution reserves such authority. On April 9, 2009, Perry said, "I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our State. That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the States' rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our State from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union."

What a Rick Perry diplomacy would look like: not reckless, but measured, backed up by strength, unwilling to tolerate insult, and ready to act with force and decision when necessary.

PERRY refused to raise taxes when Texas faced a record $10 billion budget shortfall in 2003. Instead, he was the first Texas governor since World War II to sign a budget that lowered state spending (and has now done it twice). As governor, Perry has used his line item veto to cut over $3 billion in proposed spending.
Gov Perry is the ONLY candidate who passed TORT reform and defunded planned parenthood . no other candidate has even ever tried .Perry would make a great President and would turn this country around, put us back on course.

Perry is a Veteran, he is from a place where eight seconds separates the men from the boys. He is for a strong Military (will not apologize to foreign governments). He will make an awesome CIC and will never treat our troops like pawns on a chess board like Obama does.

Let's put the best candidate with the best record and the best plan to get DC off our back and restore our greatness. Not some has been insider like Newt who ran to promote his brand and not Mitt who ran to complete his resume but Perry who ran because this country is in deep shit and he saw all his parents and grandparents had worked for, his and America's heritage being sold in DC!

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Will Chair Rick Perry's Arizona Campaign

Arpaio Will Chair Rick Perry's Arizona Campaign

CBS News

AUSTIN, Texas - In a move to reassure conservatives who think he's soft on illegal immigration, Gov. Rick Perry announced Friday that controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will chair his campaign in Arizona.

Although admired by conservatives for his get-tough approach to controlling illegal immigration in his Southern Arizona county, Arpaio is facing allegations by the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division on a wide range of issues, including claims of practicing a pattern of racial profiling and discrimination and carrying out heavy-handed immigration patrols based on racially charged citizen complaints.

Arpaio endorsed Perry in the Republican primary before the federal investigation surfaced, and he campaigned for Perry in both Iowa and New Hampshire.

Since the Justice Department probe came to light, Perry has defended Arpaio, telling Fox News in December that "these people are out after Sheriff Joe." The sheriff's support is meant in part to bolster Perry's record as tough on immigration. He has taken heat from conservatives for a Texas law he signed granting in-state college tuition to the children of illegal immigrants.

Also on Friday, Perry filed the required documents to get on GOP primary ballots in Arizona, Illinois, Ohio, Vermont and Washington, D.C.

"As my campaign for president moves forward, our superior organization and resources allow me to compete nationwide, where I'm confident our unmatched jobs record, conservative fiscal and social policies, and status as the only Washington outsider can win over Republican voters," Perry said in a statement.

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

I am thrilled Perry has asked Sheriff Joe to do this. They are a good team.

No Conservative Economically Santorum tells CNN: “I’m Proud of My Earmarks” (Video)

No Conssrvative Economically Santorum tells CNN: “I’m Proud of My Earmarks” (Video)


Just a few weeks before DeMint stood for re-election on South Carolina’s ballot, Rick Santorum showed up in DeMint’s neighborood to tell everyone Jim DeMint was wrong on earmarks. “Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania said the Constitution gives Congress control of the purse strings and that he supported earmarks for port deepening while a senator – the opposite of the position that DeMint is taking. But former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia said DeMint has shown “moral courage” in refusing to support any earmarks, including one that the State Ports Authority says is needed to study the deepening of Charleston Harbor.”

Santorum went on John King USA on CNN tonight and again defended earmarks claiming “Jim DeMint did it too” without acknowledging DeMint repented and has since led the fight against earmarks. When asked about what he may or may not have said about black welfare recipients, Santorum defended himself by claiming he got earmarks for a black community in Pennsylvania.

So called conservatives that support this guy are very mistaken. He may be a social conservative but he is not a fiscial conservative at all.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

NBC News anchor Brian Williams quickly changed the subject, but NBC News Military Analyst Retired Col. Jack Jacobs was clearly not happy with President Obama’s plan to gut the U.S. Military. Jacobs reacted to Obama’s plan to eliminate more than 100,000 U.S. active duty troops – 1 out of every 7 U.S. active duty soldiers.

“I’m not convinced we’re going to be able to do what we need to do with that small an Army.”

Rush Limbaugh: “I Hope Perry Stays In”

“I hope he stays in.” said Rush Limbaugh today on his radio show, after acknowledging that there was some confusion about whether Rick Perry had decided to stay in the race for president or not.

“Does he have a high enough base here to pull off what now would be a miracle?” asked Limbaugh, “I hope he stays in.”

From Rush Limbaugh’s website:

There was a tweet, you know, Perry last night said he’s gonna head back to Texas for prayer and reflection to figure out what he should do next. ‘Cause he spent a lot of money in Iowa, and it didn’t translate to votes. And the theory is that, you know, money didn’t translate to votes in Iowa, then it may not translate to votes anywhere else. And is it worth going into debt? Does he have a high enough base here to pull off what now would be a miracle? I hope he stays in. ‘Cause I told you I like Perry, and I like Santorum, and I told you countless times I know either one of those guys — and I said this about Bachmann as well — if any of them are elected president, I have no doubt whatsoever they are gonna be fighting for this country each and every day, no doubt whatsoever. I hope Perry stays in.

From the day before:

Rick Perry has always made me smile. I look at Rick Perry speak and I smile, sometimes I laugh. I've met Rick Perry a couple times, and I've enjoyed it thoroughly both times. I like Rick Perry.

Anyway, I've got the sound bite now of Rick Perry. This was Sunday in Des Moines, and this is The Politico White House correspondent Mike Allen interviewing Rick Perry. He says to him, "Governor, some of your staffers have told us that you ran this as a gubernatorial campaign for too long, that you didn't look big enough, you didn't get big enough. You take some responsibility for that?"

PERRY: (echo) I don't know who you're talking to.

ALLEN: Well, these are members --

PERRY: So I can't respond unless you give me a name.

ALLEN: These are members of your staff --

PERRY: You got a name?

ALLEN: -- who say --

PERRY: You got a name?

ALLEN: (1.5 second pause) You won't listen to...?

PERRY: You got a name?

ALLEN: (1.2 second pause) Uhhhh.

PERRY: If you don’t have a name to tell me this individual who said this, then I don't take that as a corroborated source.

RUSH: And that's Rick Perry, "You got a name? You got a name?" This is not somebody stupid, folks, doing this. You got a name? In fact, it was Mike Allen, (imitating Allen) "Uh, you're -- you're -- well, you -- you -- uh -- you're not gonna reply? You're -- you -- you're -- you're not gonna react to that?" "You gotta name?" "But I got a staffer, the staffer said that you're basically stupid and suck." "You got a name?" "But you -- uh --"

RUSH : It doesn't sound like somebody stupid to me, folks.


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

What Santorum, Gingrich, and Romney offer is no cure but a continuation of the status quo.

We deserve better and that comes from us because those three won't give us the best. Rick Perry always has given his best, he understands how things are supposed to work and it works well in Texas, which funny enough is a republic, just like the federal government.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday afternoon following the tweet, Perry said, "This was not a hard decision."

The Texas governor confirmed that he will participate in the upcoming New Hampshire debates and head to South Carolina. He added that there are "real republicans with real primaries" to come.

South Carolina campaign chairman Katon Dawson told NBC News, "Iowa picks corn, New Hampshire picks campaigns' pockets, and South Carolina picks Republican presidents and we are ready to rumble."

"This election is about stopping a President of the United States and his administration that is abusing the Constitution of this country, that is putting America on a track to bankruptcy. It is a powerful moment in Americans' history, and you are on the front lines. This is Concord. This is Omaha Beach. This is going up the hill realizing that the battle is worth winning." ~ TX Gov. Rick Perry


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

I truly believe that he is the only acceptable candidate .

It is RICK PERRY that is needed now in this very time of history, the one carrying that message to us and from us to D.C. I can think of no better time in our country’s history than NOW to get back to those very things that our country was built on and stands for!
Rick Perry has the strength, conviction, and solid record to turn America around.Rick Perry is the one with the stats on job creation.

Newt Gingrich Says Mitt Romney Will Not Get the GOP Presidential Nomination

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

The Newt Gingrich assault on Mitt Romney is in full swing. He is clearly going to tag-team with Rick Santorum to try and prevent Mitt Romney from getting the GOP Nomination. Problem is, as long as they are both in the race, they split the more conservative vote.

Here is Gingrich on MSNBC this morning with Chuck Todd where he said flatly that Romney will not get the GOP Nomination.

Rick Perry: Iowa caucuses only the beginning of 'marathon' GOP race

Los Angeles Times

As a distance runner before being slowed by back problems, the Texas governor said...... "I finished my marathon, and I expect to finish this marathon as well." He said conservatives "don't have to settle for something less than what your values are."

Reporting from Sioux City, Iowa— Facing weak poll numbers and the very real possibility of a bottom-tier finish in Iowa's kickoff caucuses, Rick Perry on Monday likened the 2012 Republican presidential contest to a marathon that was still in its first mile.

Speaking to supporters in the faux-rustic lobby of a modern hotel near the banks of the Missouri River, Perry said the early stages of a long race are often misleading, and he predicted that other candidates would "hit the wall" later on.

A distance runner before being slowed by back problems, the Texas governor said, "I finished my marathon, and I expect to finish this marathon as well." He said conservatives "don't have to settle for something less than what your values are."

Perry predicted that "every day that goes by, we're going to get stronger," and he called himself the only GOP contender who could combine an outsider message with, "more importantly," an "ability to raise the money to go all the way through."


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

I love these videos of the speeches Anita and Rick make. They are very natural and sincere and genuine. Perry is great at joking with people too which makes others feel comfortable.

Always All About HIM, Attention Whore Obama To Speak To Iowa GOP Caucus Voters Tuesday Evening

Obama to speak to Iowa caucus voters Tuesday

The Hill

Obama will hold a televideo conference with Iowa caucus voters on Tuesday evening.

He will hold the event at 8:15 p.m., the White House announced Monday.

Obama hasn’t campaigned in the early caucus state during the primary process, given he doesn’t have any competition, but the state gave his 2008 campaign its start when he won the caucuses that year.

Plus, Iowa will be a swing state in the 2012 general election. Obama won the state in the 2008 general election but it went Republican in 2004, voting for then-President George W. Bush.

The president and his family arrive back in Washington Tuesday morning after spending the past week on vacation in Hawaii.


Wild Thing's comment.....

President 666 will do all he can to try and grab the attention to himself. This isi ithe GOP causus you freak Obama! Shut up and go away!

Rick Perry Joined by Marine Capt. Dan Moran and US Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in Perry, Iowa

Capt. Dan Moran - A wounded warrior for Rick Perry

"On the campaign trail in Iowa I asked Marine Corps Capt. Dan Moran what he was doing in Iowa? Talking to veterans and telling his story! And it's a real moving and inspiring story...he's for Rick Perry, a veteran for veterans!"

Governor Rick Perry (facing camera) hugs former Marine Captain Dan Moran during a campaign stop in Perry, Iowa



Marcus Luttrell, author of "Lone Survivor", interviewed by Matt Lauer on The Today Show on June 12, 2007.


And THIS is an amazing story of Marcus Luttrell, and Rick and Anita Perry.

Boston Globe

As Texas Governor Rick Perry makes his final pre-caucus appearances before Iowa voters today, he will be joined on the stump by a figure who’s well-known locally: 1996 and 2000 presidential candidate Steve Forbes.

The famous flat-tax advocate is expected to attest to Perry’s outside-the-box, anti-Washington campaign message.

But also joining Perry will be someone who once preferred to live in the shadows: former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell.

He received the Navy Cross after surviving a vicious 2005 battle in which three of his fellow SEALs were killed when they were discovered inside Afghanistan while pursuing a Taliban leader.

Luttrell later wrote about the experience in his book, “The Lone Survivor.” It is being made into a Peter Berg movie due for release next year.

Unlike Forbes, Luttrell isn’t expected to testify today to Perry’s policy. Rather, he will speak to the Republican presidential candidate’s character.

In a story Perry himself related to a trio of reporters from the Globe and two other news organizations during a chance encounter last night at Des Moines’s Django restaurant, Luttrell and the governor formed a bond after their own chance meeting on Coronado Island in San Diego.

Perry - still Air Force trim, with a BlackBerry on his hip and a Texas Ranger standing watch as he headed for the men’s room - recalled how his wife, Anita, insisted they head to California for a week in July 2006 to escape the Texas heat.

Perry initially resisted, mimicking with flailing arms how he gets antsy after more than three days in the same place, but he recalled being won over as they arrived at the red-roofed Hotel del Coronado.

Its deep beach blends into the Pacific Ocean, not only providing an air of tranquility but also a perfect, 70-degree running spot for people like Perry - and SEALs like Luttrell.

Their training base and headquarters is located on a secure area of the beach just south of the hotel.

The governor told the reporters that during his stay, he met a Navy man from Texas who encouraged him to come visit their operation. When Perry accepted the offer, Luttrell - a native of Huntsville, Texas - was among the few who volunteered to give up time on a Saturday to accompany the governor on the tour.

Over the course of their two hours together, Perry said, Luttrell said little more than “yessir” and “no sir.” But as his homestate governor went to leave, the Navy man asked Perry if he knew what had just happened to Luttrell.

When Perry said “no,” he was told Luttrell had just received the Navy Cross.

The governor, sensing Luttrell’s discomfort, said he congratulated his fellow Texan but didn’t push him for details.

Instead, Perry found the answers for himself.

The governor recalled sitting down at his laptop and doing a Google search for the name “Marcus Luttrell.”

He said it wasn’t until the third page of results before he found a small mention of his Navy service.

Perry said he then recalled the Navy man mentioning “Operation Redwing.”

When he typed in those two words, the screen filled with immediate hits. Perry moved both arms from high to low to emphasize how data came cascading down the screen.

The governor, who flew Air Force cargo planes in the 1970s, said he eagerly read the story about Luttrell and his team.

They were discovered on June 28, 2005, by three goat herders as they hid in the mountains while hunting a Taliban leader deemed responsible for a series of killings in eastern Afghanistan and the Hindu Kush mountains extending into Pakistan.

The group voted about what to do: one, Matthew Axelson, favored executing the herders, fearing they would betray them to Taliban forces; one, Danny Dietz, abstained, not wanting to make the life-or-death decision. The third, team leader Michael Murphy, said he would join Luttrell in whatever decision he made.

Luttrell voted to release the herders, fearing the possibility of criminal charges for violating their rules of engagement.

He later told the “Today” show’s Matt Lauer he regrets that decision every day.

Within an hour, the group was surrounded by Taliban forces. One-by-one, Luttrell’s teammates were shot and killed. A rescue helicopter carrying eight fellow SEALs was shot down by a Taliban rocket-propelled grenade, killing 16 overall.

Luttrell, though, was able to crawl away, despite being badly wounded. He later was taken in by Afghan villagers before being rescued six days after the battle.

Murphy was later awarded the Medal of Honor for his own heroics.

Perry told the reporters that after his initial meeting with Luttrell in California, the two reconnected in Texas as the SEAL battled post-traumatic stress disorder and struggled to get off a morphine regimen.

Over time, Rick and Anita Perry - the parents of two children - offered him a spare bedroom in the third floor of their Austin-area home. (They still are unable to live in the Texas Governor’s Mansion since it was burned by an arsonist while being renovated in 2008.)

Luttrell’s bed was nothing more than an air mattress, the governor related.

Perry said he also intervened with Navy Secretary Ray Mabus to get Luttrell the medical and psychological treatment he needed. He ended up being a regular presence in the home for about two years.

In 2010, Luttrell established the Lone Survivor Foundation, which is aimed at helping wounded warriors return home.”

Also in 2010, he got married. And this past May, Luttrell and his wife, Melanie, had a son.

His name is “Axe,” after Matthew Axelson, the SEAL teammate who voted to kill the herders and instead died himself in the Afghan mountains that June day.


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

If you have the time I recommend watching each one of these videos. It is really worth it, I promise.

Marcus Luttrell and his wife were included in the Perry family’s decision of whether Rick Perry should run for the nomination .

If Rick Perry's kind of character is not worthy of the Oval office then I don’t know what is.

And I truly believe Perry will make a great President. He will also be a surpurb Commander in Chief.

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

Character counts.

No other candidate has this caliber of Americans support. It just is not there for the others. Veterans and our troops are very much a part of Rick Perry's world and it shows in the friendships he has built over the years.

Iran Navy Tests Surface-to-Air Missile in Drill Near Strait of Hormuz

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's navy said Sunday it test-fired an advanced surface-to-air missile during a drill in international waters near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, the passageway for one-sixth of the world's oil supply.

Iran's state TV said the missile, named Mehrab, or Altar, is designed to evade radar and was developed by Iranian scientists. The report said the missile was tested Sunday but provided no further details.

A leading Iranian lawmaker said the sea maneuvers serve as practice for closing the Strait of Hormuz if the West blocks Iran's oil sales. After top Iranian officials made the same threat a week ago, military commanders emphasized that Iran has no intention of blocking the waterway now.

The exercise covers a 1,250-mile (2,000-kilometer) stretch of water beyond the Strait of Hormuz, including parts of the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden.

The drill, which could bring Iranian ships into proximity with U.S. Navy vessels that operate in the same area, is Iran's latest show of strength in the face of mounting international criticism over its nuclear program. The West fears Iran's program aims to develop atomic weapons — a charge Tehran denies, insisting it's for peaceful purposes only.

The 10-day exercise drew significant attention after the Iranian warnings about closing the strait. Iranian military officials later appeared to back away from that threat.

Wild Thing's comment......

Iran better be careful. Our military will if they want to can make a parking lot our of Iran if it ever came to that.

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

The next First Lady, Anita Perry stopped by the Sharaton in West Des Moines today. Spoke with her briefly and learned she and Sydney are having dinner with Steve Forbes this evening.

LA Gov Bobby Jindal, Texas AG Greg Abbot and Steve Forbes are spending the next two days campaigning for Gov Perry!

On Monday night, in the appropriately named Iowa town of Perry, the Texas governor and his family will hold their final event of the day alongside Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, both of whom endorsed Perry early in the race. Joining them on stage will be former presidential candidate Steve Forbes, the chief proponent of Perry's flat-tax proposal, and Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, a longtime Perry ally in Austin. South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney, one of the most popular conservatives in the early Southern primary state, is also making the trek to Iowa for the Perry rally.

Marcus Lutrell is also to be arriving to be there on Tuesday I believe.
