Prayers for the Breitbart family.

Godspeed, Andrew. You will be sorely missed.

I sincerely hope the folks at Breitbart.com and Big Government.com carry on his great legacy and release those tapes. Soon.

I recently saw an image of President Obama exchanging a high-five with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from the black and white beyond.

After considering the image and what it represents, I think the photo-shopper got a couple of things wrong, so I fixed it.

There.

That’s more accurate.

Here’s the original.

While I’m sure that Dr. King would be happy to see a man of color inaugurated President, I cannot believe he would condone much, if any, of the actions of this unconstitutional president. Judging by content of character, I think he would be ashamed of the legacy Barack Hussein Obama leaves behind.

Happy President’s Day.

Not that it would have done any good, but…

Every step in the right direction,

is a step in the right direction.

Curmudgeon from the blog Political Clown Parade has been busy lately putting together three motivational videos regarding the 2012 election. I would encourage you to watch them all.

First, a take-down of Obama’s lies from the State of the Union address:

The State of our Disunion

Next,

America Stands at a Crossroads:

And,

Soros The Puppetmaster Sees No Difference (Between Romney and Obama):

God, please bless America again.

How much do we borrow to buy votes fund unearned entitlements?

Peter Morrison is back with an admonition to conservative Texans to get busy on the next election cycle. What with the federal courts intervening in our redistricting process, it makes this election ever more important to weed out the RINO’s from state and national politics as much as possible.

I think this applies to just about every state, even those that we may think are lost such as California. After all, every move towards conservatism is a step back from communism.

The Peter Morrison Report

Summary of this week’s report:

RINOs are the curse of the GOP, but, as hard as it is to believe after two years of Tea Party activism, many key RINOs are still in office and Joe Straus is still the Texas Speaker.  Despite the current redistricting turmoil, we need to organize to give the boot to as many RINOs in Austin and DC as possible.

Full report:

In 2012, Texas conservatives need to focus our energies on removing our own RINOs from office, and keeping them off the Republican ticket, this coming election.  It’s impossible to overstate how important this task is, on both the state and the national levels.  RINOs are poison to a conservative agenda.   There is little real difference between them and Democrats, and once elected they use their power to sabotage attempts to enact good conservative legislation.  We’ve seen this take place in Austin over and over.  No matter how loudly conservatives speak at the polls, and how good prospects for conservative legislation look, the RINOs in the party often manage to water good bills down, or block them altogether.

On top of this, activist federal judges have thrown the election into complete turmoil by throwing out the new legislative district maps recently drawn up in Austin, creating their own maps, and ordering the state to follow them.  This was in response to a lawsuit claiming that the maps drawn up in Austin discriminated against non-white voters, particularly Hispanics.  The court found in their favor and drew up new maps that were much more to their liking, because they include more districts where Hispanics are a majority. (You can compare the legislature’s map and the court’s map by doing an internet search for Texas District Viewer.) Given long established voting patterns, what this boils down to is that the court has created several more solidly Democratic districts, and eliminated some solidly Republican districts.

Attorney General Greg Abbott has filed an emergency appeal with the US Supreme Court to put the enactment of this ruling on hold, partly because Monday, November 28th was the first day a person who intends to run for office could file paperwork for a place on the ballot.  When it’s not even clear what districts will exist come Election Day, it’s pretty difficult to file the proper paperwork, so everything is in flux right now. Hopefully common sense and judicial restraint will prevail at the Supreme Court, and this ruling will be put on hold, but that is by no means certain.  Furthermore, even if this ruling does wind up being eventually overturned on appeal, the voting trends driven by huge population growth among Hispanics in Texas virtually assure that the state legislature and Congressional delegation will become increasingly less Republican and more Democratic.

Given all these factors – the dim prospects of a truly conservative presidential candidate, the state elections being up in the air, and the massive demographic changes taking place in Texas, it’s imperative that we work harder than ever in 2012 to elect genuine conservatives to the state house and to Congress.  The 2010 elections demonstrated what we can do when we’re truly motivated, and we need to recapture that same level of energy and motivation for the Republican primaries of 2012, which take place in early March.

If a RINO currently represents your district in Austin or DC, or if one is currently the favorite for the GOP nomination, start organizing now to defeat him or her in the primary.  Wherever there are genuine conservative challengers, it’s time to get behind them. If there aren’t currently any, it’s time to recruit someone.  If you don’t know of anyone else that might run, consider running yourself! It’s easy to think of reasons not to run or get involved, but as Edmund Burke once said, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

Don’t underestimate the impact you may have.  All incumbents either run unopposed or run scared.  RINOs in particular know they have betrayed their base and are scared of being called on it.  Several conservatives won in 2010 in the primary against well-funded incumbents, like former RINO state representatives Tommy Merritt and Delwin Jones.  By running against someone, even if you lose, you make them spend money, money that an unopposed incumbent can use to prop up his fellow RINOs in other districts.  If you lose and do better than expected, you might still accomplish your goal.

Case in point: RINO Burt Solomons just announced he won’t be seeking re-election.  Insiders I know report that this is because he was shown to be weak in the 2010 primary when he squeaked by with 53% of the vote against an opponent who spent a tiny amount of money, and big money conservative donors were looking to run a very strong race against him this year, so he chickened out.  There’s nothing more humiliating for an incumbent than to lose in a primary (and many of them are lazy from years in office with no serious campaigns), so often fear of losing makes them quit, and you win by default.  This happened in 2010 when RINO Brian McCall decided not to run after the Tea Party started organizing against him in 2009; now that district is represented by a real conservative, Rep. Van Taylor.  Slowly but surely conservatives are removing the turncoats who betrayed their constituents and elected Joe Straus as Speaker.

The Republican primary election date of March 6th is not very far away at all.  Right now, the candidate filing deadline is December 15th.  That may change, depending on what happens in the courts.

In the next few weeks we’ll have a definitive answer one way or another on the redistricting map, so if your district is currently in flux that should change soon.  So keep an eye on the news, and get ready to do battle this March with GOP sellouts!

If you have any specific questions about your district, such as whether your incumbent deserves a challenger, feel free to email in.  I can find out if there is an existing challenger and help connect you with some folks who can help you if you decide to run.

Helpful info on tomorrow’s Constitutional Amendment Elections from the Southeast Texas TEA Party:
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,  right?
Constitutional Amendment Elections are actually VERY important. We are CHANGING the Texas Constitution!
This year’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 the 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 from Parker County Blog.
This graph shows the Voting Recommendations from Conservative Organizations in Texas
As you can see from the graph, the conservative organizations in Texas are AGAINST most of the propositions on the ballot. 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 guide

Trog has a great idea about who to include on that list before he’ll agree to submit to such a test.

But let’s think about this for a moment.

The libertarian in me says we need less intrusion, not more, but I understand the premise: people on the government dole should be held to the same standard as their benefactors.

We tax payers  are the 53% so by default we are their (the people on welfare and or food stamps) employers. It’s a shame their job description is so undemanding, really. It’s actually non-existent if you think about it, aside from a set-up appointment and a few phone calls the monetary benefits far out-way the miniscule effort/reward ratio. And really, who can resist government cheese? Certainly not the entire class of people the left has trained to suckle the government teat over the last 50 years. So, I’m in agreement, in principle.

But as long as we’re tossing around ideas…

Let’s require drug tests for Congress and all public employees

by randomly chosen, non-union labs,

or no tests at all.

For anyone

except by the requirements of their employer and even then they should be performance driven.

The point is, Congress should be subject to every condition and requirement for employment they legislate upon the people they supposedly serve. That goes for public employees as well.

That’s not asking too much, is it?

Every now and again I’m handed an opportunity to participate in a worthy cause. This week, my good friend Russ, from the blog That’s Right, fellow member of the #VRWC and outstanding patriot, asked if I would be interested in contributing to and helping spread the word about his latest cause.

The way I see it, any day I can lend a hand in defeating entrenched liberal politicians hell-bent on destroying our great country is a good day in my book.

Hey Russ, old buddy, count me in!

So, what’s going on?

It seems there’s an election being held THIS November 8th, 2011 and we can help save  some folks from another session of liberal abuses.

Here’s the flyer from Russ:

“Donate $16 to end 16 years of Democrat Rule in Old Bridge!”

Wherever you are, the march of liberalism everywhere else contributes to our national woe.

Wherever you are, somewhere else there is a liberal politician being groomed for higher office.

Wherever you are, there are good Conservatives pushing back against the tide in their own backyards.

This year, in an off-off election, we here in the Swamps of New Jersey are doing just that.

We could use your help.

For 16 consecutive years liberal Democrats have controlled the Township of Old Bridge, a large municipality in Middlesex County, and used it like their own personal piggy bank.

  • They have built a staggering $8 million budget deficit;
  • They sell Township land to Township utility authorities to plug gaping budget holes;
  • They have no other ideas on increasing revenue other than increasing taxes; and
  • This June, they passed an unfunded, lifetime health care ordinance that reduces the number of required years of service from 25 to 15 years, which means Old Bridge will foot the entire bill employee health care for individuals who work for a total of 25 years in the system. The cost of this bill is astronomical.

We can win this year. We can turn the tide of liberalism here in Old Bridge and thereafter, Middlesex County and beyond.

We’re asking for $16 to help us do that. $16 to help fellow Conservatives in New Jersey save a Township and a State from California’s fate.

Will you donate $16 to end 16 years of Democrat Rule in Old Bridge?

We’ll be here for you when you need us. It’s a Jersey thing.

Thank you America.

Old Bridge Republicans.

If just 1,000 people donated $16, it would go a long way toward dislodging the liberal machine in Old Bridge and sending a strong message to the establishment in New Jersey.

Someone once said that all politics is local. Well, here’s your chance to help some conservatives get a foothold in a long standing liberal district.

Will you join me in lending a hand?

Much obliged.
