Conservative Candidates

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.

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.

2624 Rt. 516W, Old Bridge, NJ 08857 ~ 732-952-5120 ~ www.oldbridgerepublicans.com

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.

Right on.

Don Surber also has some nice pictures.

The man(?) who inspired the ‘All Palin February’ by vowing not to mention Sarah Palin for the entire month fails at his own resolution – on the first day!

Via Gateway Pundit, who also has video:

WaPo leftist Dana Milbank pledged to make February a Palin Free month.
He couldn’t even make it one day.

Nicely done, Dana.

We here at the ‘Robotic Institute for All Things Sarah’ feel your pain. We ourselves have pledged to not pledge and sworn to not swear. As a matter of flak, we’ve even gone so far as to not go far enough in our hypocrisy, so, to amend this error, erroneously, and without any androgyny or mistaking of the sexes, Dana, we, meaning me, will post a photo of Mrs. Palin so that you may gaze upon a future president who, in comparison, is far more qualified by the positions she has held than the America bashing, radical muslim loving, in-gracious, lying, sack of horse manure currently sitting in the office sipping Slurpees.

So there.

How do you like them road apples?

Whoops! It appears the photographer has found a lens to the future!

How awesome is this?! ‘All Palin February’ has kicked off at iOwnTheWorld and as a Sarah Palin admiring robot of the conservative persuasion, I’m in!

Did Harry Reid steal the Nevada election from Sharron Angle?

This may be one instance where George Soros’ Secretary of State Project worked as planned.

From Right Pundits:

[Secretary of State Ross] Miller is a life-long partisan Democrat operative in the state, the legacy son of former Democratic governor Bob Miller. He interned in the Clinton White House after obtaining a law degree from Loyola Marymount University. At age 30 he is also the youngest Secretary of State in Nevada’s history and apparently in way over his head.None of that would matter if he would only take an active role in voter fraud claims by Republicans, but instead Miller appears to be hiding behind his own bureaucracy.

Despite these widespread reports in the news about Nevada voting machines miraculously selecting Harry Reid’s name in a case of divine intervention, Miller’s response to the explosive Nevada election fraud allegations is that nobody bothered to file a formal complaint with the election’s division so he is not going to investigate it! He seems offended that a resident would instead take her case to the news media. Miller knows, of course, that pretty much nobody knows how to file election fraud complaints in a state. The voters are doing the natural thing by talking to the media.

The allegations of voter fraud, tampering and intimidation by Harry Reid’s campaign continue to pile up. So strange was Reid’s comeback after early voting showed a GOP advantage, The Christian Science Monitor labeled his victory a Houdini act.

This robot is absolutely *blsht* positive that the Senator did everything within his *hack*  power to keep his staffers and his son, Rory Reid, who is the *crrpt* Clarke County Commissioner where the vote stealing allegations took place, on the straight and *ahem* narrow, but the questions remain and accumulate, unanswered.

Strange: Election night, an as yet unexplained power outage occurred at one Las Vegas polling location. How convenient.

Side note: Also in question to me is the timing of Obama’s highly overrated, exorbitantly expensive, overseas trip in the wake of this election. Could it possibly be a bit of distraction from the possibility of voter fraud? The three-card-monte is always in play, it seems, with these people.

In another article, Elizabeth Crum, reporting for the National Review Online unearthed “disturbing” evidence of “collusion,” coercion and harassment of Harrah’s employees to conjure votes for embattled Senator Reid against the TEA Party candidate Sharron Angle. (H/T Am-Pow)

The accusations stem from a series of emails and spreadsheets that NRO obtained which offer damning evidence against Harry Reid’s staff, and possibly point to Reid’s personal  involvement in the scandal, with some in Harrah’s upper management being willing accomplices to the stealing of the election through voter/employee intimidation.

Reports Crum:

The stepped-up effort began Wednesday when a Reid staffer sent an email pleading for help to Harrah’s top lobbyist, Jan Jones. Soon after, Marybel Batjer, Harrah’s vice president of public policy and communications, distributed that plea via email to executives throughout the company.

Later in the article, the employee who forwarded the emails said:

“We were asked to talk to people individually to find out why they had not yet voted and to fill in these spreadsheets explaining why,” the employee said. “I did not feel comfortable doing that.”

“It put me in a very awkward position,” the employee added, saying the level of coordination between Harrah’s upper management, the culinary union, and the Reid campaign was “disgusting.”

A spokesman with the Federal Election Commission declined to comment on the case, but encourages anyone who feels that an election-law violation has occurred to file a complaint with the commission.

I wonder how many complaints have been filed already.

BigFurHat @ iOTW simply states: Harry Reid Broke The Law – Plain and Simple.

Here’s hoping someone with enough power to combat the Reid machine can get to the bottom of these serious anti-American accusations. One thing’s for sure, Eric Holder and the Federal justice system are going to turn a blind eye unless more evidence surfaces.

O’Donnell Censored by Local Television?

2010 Voter Fraud?

From the O’Donnell campaign:

Wilmington, DE – An Election Eve television outreach by Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell was not aired as scheduled, even though the campaign paid for the advertising last week. O’Donnell campaign spokesman Doug Sachtleben offered the following statement:

“It’s still unclear as to why the local cable channel failed to air the half-hour long special. Our hope is that this is not another case of the liberal media or political dirty tricks trying to silence Christine’s message to the voters of Delaware.

“Christine announced the broadcast during yesterday’s rally in Wilmington, and it was scheduled to run at 11:30 p.m. Sunday and again at 10 a.m. today. But, the channel did not air the powerful ad at either scheduled time. We are very disappointed that an ad, which the campaign paid for last week, was not aired as scheduled.”

What is it with Joy? Has she none? First I hear of her calling Sharron Angle a B*I*T*C*H, then  Sharron kindly turns the other cheek, and chooses to send Mzzzz. Behar a bouquet of flowers!

What does Joy do? Does she have a change of heart? Does she laugh about what an arrogant little snob she was? No. She doubles down on the bitchitude. Not very lady like at all, really.

I’m sure Miss Angle will respond with the class she has already shown to Mzzz. Beehair. It could be that was Joy’s ploy all along. She wanted more flowers! Yea, that must be it.

Ahem. Joy, hon, you get more flies with honey, honey. But in your case, I’m not so sure.

Anyhoo, I’ve created a little game we can all play while we wait fir the next salvo. Rules are prescribed below. En-joy.

Three Beers Later – More ways to report election fraud: Report Prog Election Fraud, Citizens!

I missed donating to a candidate this past Friday and felt a bit of loss at not having made that weekly donation. So I was thankful that Instapundit gave me a method to relieve my stress. A Monday Money Bomb for Ruth McClung, the rocket scientist running in Arizona’s CD-7!

Hey, thanks for the heads-up, Mr. Reynolds. who also notes that , according to an article at Gateway Pundit, there may be some major voter fraud being attempted in Ruth’s district.

Ruth needs our help to defeat these leftist shenanigans.

Ruth McClung for Congress.

McClung Miracle Monday Money Bomb.

Another conservative lady comes to Arizona’s defense, and by doing so, America’s as well. Ruth McClung is a physicist who is concerned about the direction of our country, not a career politician, concerned with lining their pockets.

…I cannot stand on the sidelines when politicians in Washington (like my opponent) are grabbing control of our personal freedoms, wrecking our economy, recklessly spending our money, and destroying America’s greatness. We need to return to limited government, personal responsibility and integrity, a strong work ethic, and opportunity for all. The American dream is to be self reliant and work to achieve the life that you want, not live off the government.

As a nation, we face many complex challenges requiring innovative solutions. My technical knowledge and expertise in scientific problem solving will be valuable in solving these problems. I will take strong, decisive stands on border security and immigration, curbing out-of-control government debt, and promoting job creation through a free market economy. I am committed to limiting our government and defending our Constitution. Working as a physicist, I understand the importance of finding the right solution instead of causing new problems. Maybe it does take a rocket scientist.
