The corruption in the Republican Party can no longer be ignored. I recieved a message today and a link to the video evidence from Heidi Thiess concerning the Republican Rules Committee fight that occurred during the first days of the recent RNC convention:
Calling all Conservatives: watch this UPDATE ON REPUBLICAN FLOOR FIGHT. The real story is getting out. Please help spread the word. Have you seen this video of Boehner’s SCRIPTED response to the floor vote? Unfettered, incontrovertible corruption! Please help share his video everywhere because folks still don’t understand the impact of these changes nor the corruption that the RNC and top Republican officials engaged in to shove this down our throats.
The bottom line: these rules would have crushed Reagan in ’76 and if left unchanged mean we’ll never get a conservative choice (like a Reagan) again. We must fight back!
Watch the TelePrompter that PROVES corruption:
Thanks to Heidi and to Ben Swann for following this story.

Daniel Miller, candidate for TX HD21 speaks at the SETX TEA Party forum which, not incidentally, was originally intended as a debate between Rep. Allan Ritter and Mr. Miller (D21) along with Rep. Mike Hamilton and Rep. James White (D19). Rather than a debate, the event evolved into a forum due to Ritter and Hamilton
chickening backing out at the last minute. Shame on ‘em.
It remains to be seen whether the people of Southeast Texas will abide this kind of behavior from their supposed servants.
“Southeast Texas has a chance, for once, to have a seat at the table when Conservatives take over the Texas Legislature.”~ Daniel Miller
A vote for Daniel Miller helps Orange and Jefferson Counties put a Constitutional Conservative in that seat.

A couple of news items pertaining to the Miller campaign:
“TEAParty911.com founder, Michael Kinzie, today announced his endorsement of Daniel Miller in his bid for the Texas House of Representatives in HD-21. Kinzie said of Miller, â€œDaniel Miller IS what Texas needs more of. Anyone who would tell his moderate opponent, Allan Ritter, to â€˜put up or shut upâ€™ about his record is my kind of politician.”
In other news, Allan Ritter renounced his agreement to participate in the TEA Party hosted May 15 debate.
So, I guess Ritter chose to shut up. What is he afraid of, a RINO hunter?
The obvious conclusion is that Rep. Ritter is ashamed of his voting record and will attempt to stand on rhetoric alone. Like his liberal
friends in Washington, and the RINO House Speaker Joe Straus, he underestimates the fervor of the new TEA Party brand of Conservative and the enthusiasm they bring to personal investigation, information gathering and sharing.
My friends, it’s crunch time. If you want to elect a true Constitutional Conservative to the Texas House to represent Orange and Jefferson Counties, please pass this on to your friends. As far as war chests go, it doesn’t get more ‘David and Goliath’ than this, but we have the one thing our opponent’s campaign doesn’t.
A Proven Conservative.
On behalf of Daniel and the campaign team, Thanks for your help and support.
Daniel’s recent endorsements include:
Apostle Claver – Founder of Raging Elephants. org, StampedeTX2012.com
and Constitutional Conservative activist,
Cathie Adams – Former state Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas
and current Texas Eagle Forum president

The gloves are coming off in the race for Texas Representative D21 between incumbent Allan Ritter and challenger Daniel Miller. Candidate Miller has called on Rep. Ritter to “Put up or shut up” and defend his record.
Good luck with that Rep. Ritter. In my robotic opinion, your record is impossible to describe as conservative. It simply isn’t.
And I’m not the lone wolf in my assessment.
Yesterday, Apostle Claver, founder of RagingElephants.org, Stampede!TX 2012 and Conservative activist extraordinaire spoke at a luncheon hosted by the Jefferson County Republican Women. In an impassioned speech, Claver shared his reasons for personally asking Daniel Miller to enter the race for State Representative.
Come to think of it, asking Daniel to run goes a bit farther than an endorsement, don’t you think?
Here’s the video:
Daniel Miller followed up with an email and post on his website TexansforMiller.com with a challenge to Rep. Ritter to defend his record.
As you have spent countless dollars on trying to convince the people of Southeast Texas that you are a conservative, it is time that you prove it. Not with your usual tactic of taking credit for the work of actual conservatives in the Legislature, but by justifying the votes that you have taken during your tenure.
When legislation has been introduced in the Texas Legislature, you were forced to either vote for it, vote against it or “sit on the bench”. Any of these choices that you have made have been recorded in the journals of the Texas Legislature.
You need to come clean with the people of Southeast Texas and prove to us where you did not:
- Vote FOR giving unsupervised state money to paroled felons (81 Leg., HB 3226)
- Vote AGAINST the amendment that defunded Planned Parenthood (82 Leg., SB 23, RV#1172)
- Vote FOR allowing judges to reduce punishments for child sex offenders (80 Leg., HB 8, Amendment 16)
- Vote FOR allowing illegal aliens to receive in-state college tuition rates (77 Leg., HB 1403)
- Vote AGAINST Voter ID in the 79th & 80th Legislative session (79 Leg., SB 89, RV#842; 80 Leg., HB 218, Amendments 7, 11, 13, 15 & Passage to Engrossment)
- Vote FOR giving drivers licenses to illegal aliens in the 77th Legislative session (77 Leg., HB 396)
- Vote FOR raiding the Rainy Day Fund in the 82nd Legislative session (82 Leg., SB 2, RV#58)
Again, your votes were pulled directly from the journals of the Texas Legislature and, unless the Legislature is operating its journals like it “balances” a budget, then you will not be able to show that you voted like a conservative on any of these bills and amendments cited.
These votes, among many others, were noted by leading Conservative watchdog groups EmpowerTexans, Heritage Alliance, Young Conservatives of Texas and the Texas Eagle Forum and were just a few that led to your FAILING SCORES during your entire tenure in the Texas Legislature.
Just in case you missed it at the GTRW meeting, here they are:
- Heritage Alliance 2009 â€“ 30%
- Heritage Alliance 2011 â€“ 57%
- Empower Texans 2009 â€“ 42%
- Empower Texans 2011 â€“ F
- Young Conservatives of Texas 2009 â€“ 32%
- Young Conservatives of Texas 2011 â€“ 55%
- Young Conservatives of Texas Career â€“ 40%
- Eagle Forum 2011 â€“ 28%
Given these scores it is difficult for you to make the case that you are a “conservative leader” and, at best, the most that you can claim from the last session is a “Participation Ribbon”.
Some things just speak for themselves, like an incumbent’s record.
On a semi-side note, if you’re in the mood for a little lighthearted spoof on Representative Ritter and his recent “Conservative Conversion,” I’ve been playing around with a new camera and some video editing software lately. Feel free to
hammer on politely critique my editing skillz in the comments.
After you view that last video, be sure to hit the 1836 Money Bomb banner so we can afford to hire better video guys and hopefully even get the commercials aired. We are the very epitome of grass-roots around here, folks. Kind-of like the Beverly Hillbillies, but without the oil, mansion or movie set.
I believe the only way to save Texas and America is to support grass-roots, Constitutional, Conservative, Christian candidates. That’s why I got involved at the campaign level, and why I support Texas Patriots like Daniel Miller, Tammy Blair, Robert Gonzales, Col. Jim Engstrand, James White, Heidi Thiess and Ted Cruz.
UPDATE: How did I omit Matt Beebe? Doh!

Texas Constitutional Elections do not get much publicity. No one is on the ballot. We are not voting for President or a Congressman. Who cares, Â right?Constitutional Amendment Elections are actually VERY important. We are CHANGING the Texas Constitution!This yearâ€™s Constitutional Amendment Election is on Tuesday November 8th, 2011.There are 10 propositions on the ballot this year.Below is a list and explanation (from theÂ Texas Secretary of State website) of the propositions that you will see on the ballot when you go to your polling location to vote.Also, below you will find an awesome graph fromÂ Parker County Blog.This graph shows the Voting Recommendations from Conservative Organizations in TexasAs you can see from the graph, the conservative organizations in Texas areÂ AGAINSTÂ most of the propositions on the ballot.Â Proposition 1 is the only proposition that most conservative organizations are in favor of. Proposition 10 has a pretty neutral recommendation so that one is a tossup. The rest of the propositions are generally seen as bad propositions by the majority of the conservative organizations.Everyone of course should investigate the propositions and make their own determinations of how they should vote. This is just a guideADDITIONAL RESOURCES:EMPOWER TEXANSâ€™ ANALYSIS AND RECOMMENDATIONSTEXAS EAGLE FORUM ANALYSIS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
The so-called ‘National Popular Vote’ movement is, indeed, a threat to the electoral college, a wise, inspired system our Founding Fathers set up to help provide yet another firewall to a dictator taking control of America before we had a chance to react. California has already completed the process to flip the bird at the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.
A plot is afoot to change our constitutional form of government by ditching the Electoral College. John Anderson, Birch Bayh and John Buchanan, three losers who were defeated in the 1980 Reagan landslide, are scheming to change our Constitution without complying with the amendment process.
Our Constitution requires that a president be elected by a majority of votes in the Electoral College, with each state’s vote weighted based on its population. But some who took an oath to defend our Constitution are plotting to undermine its essential structure by a compact among as few as eleven of the most populous states.
The plan of this Campaign for the National Popular Vote (NPV) is to get states with at least 270 votes in the Electoral College to enact identical bills requiring their own electors to ignore the winner of their state’s election and cast all their state’s ballots for the candidate who the state believes received more popular votes than the other candidates nationwide, even if he fails to win a majority of the popular vote.
Read the whole thing. Then, contact your state and national senators and representatives. If they sneak this through, we will lose the republic.
