3 Good Reasons To Vote On Tuesday

There is no doubt in my mind that there are people out there that will sit home on Tuesday instead of going out and voting, these are the same people I blame for giving Obama a second term. You know who you are, the ones that refuse to vote for a candidate because they do not agree 100% with what you believe.

With the Senate in our grasp and many tight races every vote counts, if you are not going to vote for someone, than go out and vote against someone. Reagan once said, if he can get 60% of what he wanted in negotiating with Democrats, he considers himself a winner, if it is good enough for Reagan, it should be good enough for you.

I have provided 3 good reasons for going out and voting on Tuesday, I hope they motivate you to get off your ass and head to the voting booth.

 

IF  THESE  3  DON’T  MOTIVATE  YOU,  NOTHING  WILL.

You Can’t Teach An Old Liberal New Tricks

I just don’t get it, after all the failed policies of the Obama administration, after all the bashing corporations for making a profit, Liberals still think that big government is the answer. At a Democratic rally in Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton attempted to attack “trickle-down economics.” Clinton defended raising the minimum wage saying “Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs, they always say that.” She went on to state that businesses and corporations are not the job creators of America. “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,” the former Secretary of State said.

Time and time again it has been proven that raising the minimum wage will hurt job creation. When you hit the bottom line of a business owner, one of two things has to happen, they have to raise prices or make cuts. Raising prices has to be the last resort in order to stay competitive, which leaves only one area, labor, which is the most expensive cost to any business.

Obviously Hilary agrees with Obama when he famously said to American business owners, “You didn’t build that.” To say that corporations and businesses do not create jobs is at best an asinine statement, if not them, who?  While watching her give that speech, it was boggling to the mind that people in the audience actually cheered and clapped when she made those ridiculous statements. Why doesn’t Hilary go tell Amazon or Microsoft that they are not really creating jobs.

The government reported that there were 248,000 jobs created in September, hey Hilary, who created those jobs, the government? Corporations and businesses create the jobs; people like Obama and Hilary destroy jobs. When government sticks its nose into the private sector trouble follows, over regulation and mandating policy hurts the economy not helps it.

Recently fast food workers were protesting for a higher minimum wage, they do not grasp the fact that they are slowly putting themselves out of work. Automation is slowly creeping its way into the fast food industry and the higher wages go, cheaper automation will be implemented, what’s better, having a job or not having a job?

I cannot believe that there are so many people in this country that still fall for that big government crap. It is the government’s job to create an atmosphere that promotes job creation; this administration has done the complete opposite. The majority of Obama’s job creation has been for part time or low wage jobs, while wages tumble and prices rise, I cannot understand how people still believe that government works for our interest, government works for government’s interest and Obama and the Democratic Party are the perfect examples of that.

And she wants to be our next President? God I hope not.

There is No Voter Fraud… Honest!

VOTE-FRAUD

If you want to see someone on the progressive left blow a gasket, talk about voter fraud. They will all tell you that it doesn’t exist or it’s so small it’s immeasurable. I say they can’t see the forest for the trees!

The hard part about voter fraud is, you have to prove the person knew what they were doing was illegal. Imagine hearing this at the poll:

Poll worker: Hello, your name?

Fraudulent voter: John Smith.

Poll Worker: Sign here Mr. Smith and I’ll give you your ballot.

Poll Worker: Sir, do you know if you are NOT Mr. Smith and you are voting for him it’s a federal offense punishable by fines and jail time?

Mr Smith: Yes, Mr. Poll Worker, and I assure you I’m Mr. Smith.

Please!!!! Have you ever heard this at the polls? Never!

One state assembly person voted 19 times, and yes, she finally got caught. She tried to say that she didn’t remember voting (18 extra times?)

In Florida, major cases of voter fraud go back to 1984 when it became so bad that it was hard to miss. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, types of voter fraud included:

  • Someone voting on behalf of someone else.
    • Purchasing or selling absentee ballots or someone’s vote.
    • Non-city residents voting in municipal elections.
    • Changing of ballots.
    • Voting by absentee ballots under the name of deceased persons.
    • Voting in the election by non-U.S. citizens.
    • False statements or information being provided with regard to address information or changes of addresses on voter registrations.
    • Possible use of certain addresses within the City limits as the “new address” for persons not residing within the City; done with the apparent sole purpose of permitting voting in the municipal election.

Andrew Ladanowski, owner of a computer software company, suspected Florida’s Division of Elections wasn’t really verifying any information.

There were over 700 voter ID cards in Florida that seemed to have been duplicated. He verified his suspicions by dong a quick analysis of Miami-Dade’s voting systems where, it turned out, there were 44 voter ID’s issued to the same person. Elections officials admit 42 of those 44 were duplicates. But what I want to know is, can’t the computer systems find these issues? Can’t we divert some of the millions of dollars wasted on the Obamacare site (or any one of the hundreds of other government programs wasting good tax money) to cleaning up voter registrations?

When finished he found over 762 Florida voters have more than one county-issued voter ID card. Some are registered with the same address, and others are registered in different counties. And a computer can’t flag this information, why?

Reject Obama’s Policies At All Levels of Government

imageMain_66_897

“I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake, my policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them,” said President Barrack Obama two weeks ago. There can be no doubt that the agenda of the past six years is a factor in the mid-term elections in two weeks, but for the president to so inextricably conjoin his policies with the election increases the significance and possible outcomes.

obamas-policy-bracketReactions to the president’s statement have been predictably mixed in political circles. The comment drew consternation from some Democratic Senate candidates who have been attempting to distance themselves from the president and his policies, even though they’ve historically been supportive. Some have reveled in the declaration believing that linking the president’s policies, and his now dismal approval rating, to the midterms increases the odds of Republicans extending their majority in the House and regaining control of the Senate.

Last Monday the president doubled down on his remarks in an interview with Al Sharpton on MSNBC. Speaking of those congressional and senatorial candidates attempting to distance themselves from his policies, the president said, “These are all folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress. I tell them, I said, ‘You know what, you do what you need to win.’”

There are two significant revelations embedded in that counsel. The first is that those of the president’s party are supportive of his agenda, regardless of what they may say. That verity is bourn out by near 100% support of the president by his party member’s votes in congress. The second revelatory counsel is for them to do whatever they need to do to win. Obviously that includes deceit to appear to voters as not amenable with the president’s agenda.

Obama spendsThis should be immensely disturbing to voters, that their Machiavellian tactics would so blatantly based on dishonesty. Disavowing the president’s policies, while having actively supported and voted for them, is counting on voter ignorance for success, and is clearly deceitful. In other words, they have to lie to hope for success at the ballot box. This comes as no surprise to many of us, but for it to be so explicitly disclosed by the national figurehead of the party speaks volumes not only of him, but the Party he leads.

A senior Senate Democratic aid said this week, “The ineptitude of the White House political operation has sunk from annoying to embarrassing,” in reference to the president’s statements, and a series of other faux pas which are seen as damaging to Democrat’s election hopes. Another has called the president’s political team the “JV squad,” in clear reference to a January statement by the president when he referred to ISIS as a “JV” terrorist group. Even David Axelrod, Obama’s former senior adviser, said Obama made a big “mistake” tying his policies to the midterm election.

image001This increases in relevancy due to public perception of the president and his policies. Overall, his job approval numbers are between 39-42%, and his approval numbers on the economy are in the same range. They’re more dismal on his foreign policy, which range mostly from 31-35%. And of those polled on whether the country is headed the right direction, only 23-27% feel that it is.

According to YouGov Obama’s base is the only demographic segment that still supports him and his policies, even though that is somewhat waning. Nearly all of his 39% approval rating is coming from Democrats. Republicans and independents combined register less than 1% approval for the president. Which is not surprising in light of Gallup’s conclusion a couple years ago, “Conservative Democrats, Liberal Republicans Hard to Find.”

The dismal approval of the administration carries over to distrust of the entire government. According to a CNN poll just last month, only 13% of Americans agree that the government “can be trusted to do what is right always or most of the time.”

Clearly the president was right, that his agenda is on the ballot in November. His policies are the Democrat Party policies, and only they support them. This is undoubtedly what Bill O’Reilly was thinking when he said this week, “If a whopping 64% of Americans think the country is out of control under the Obama administration, why would anyone vote for a Democrat?” That is a superb question!

carson-on-undermining-usaThere is no discernable difference between the national party policies and those either implemented or supported at the state and local levels. Their core value, based on what they do, not necessarily what they say, is based in government solutions and control, at the expense individual liberty. This is manifested in all facets of governance from economic and foreign policy, to education and security, with but few exceptions.

If one is supportive of the direction the nation is headed now, it would be understandable to vote accordingly. But for all who are not pleased with the nation’s direction, Bill O’Reilly’s question is apropos, “Why would anyone vote for a Democrat?” Since we know where such policies lead, we might tenably add, “At any level.”

What Kind Of Idiot Wants Gender Neutral Restrooms

It seems like every time I turn around, there is another nail being put into the coffin of society. I cannot believe that there are morons out there that actually believe we should have men and women, boys and girls using the same restrooms. Another thing I cannot believe that the town where this is taking place is in Texas and it is being proposed by the mayor of that town, who just so happens to be a lesbian, God help us. Just like that famous line from the movie Network, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore.”

Every normal person should pick-up and move out of that city and leave the morons and idiots to live in their delusional world. How can anyone in their right mind think that it is OK for a man of 45, to be in the same restroom as a little girl of 7, society seems to be sinking a lot quicker than I thought. Even the fact that this could be a possibility is beyond any reasoning of a normal person.

In this Texas city of Houston, Mayor Annise Parker, the lesbian, is also waging war on the First Amendment by ordering all pastors and priests to hand in to the city, all sermons, speeches, or presentations that deal with homosexuality or gender identity issues. If the city of Houston does not stand-up and kick this mayor out of office, our country is in big trouble.

Let me say something to all those homosexuals out there who read this, I am tired of you trying to shove your lifestyle down my throat, I don’t agree with it, I think it is wrong and it is a perverted and unnatural lifestyle, if you want to live like that keep it to yourself and leave the rest of us alone, I won’t except it.

Now ministers face a 180-day jail term and $1,000 fine for each day they decline to celebrate a same-sex wedding. Just last weekend, a case has arisen in Idaho, where city officials have told ordained ministers they have to celebrate same-sex weddings or face fines and jail time. Homosexuality and same sex marriage are against Christian beliefs, why can’t they deal with it, the First Amendment means nothing to these people, freedom of religion means just that.

We now live in a society that dismisses God, but celebrates homosexuality, drug use, unwed motherhood and abortion. Our society is crumbling around us and no one seems to be doing anything to stop it. Electing idiots like the mayor of Houston is not helping society at all and I do not understand how anyone with half a brain would vote for someone like that.

Bush Vindicated.WMD’s Were Found and We Were Never Told!!!

bushs fault

As everyone knows we went into Iraq after every  intelligence in the world said Saddam had weapons of mass distruction (WMD’s).  Germany said he had them, France said he had them, Great Britain said he had them, Saudi Arabia said he had them and now it looks like they were all right. Apparantly  they were found, but we were never told thanks to Karl Rove and a Bush policy that said not to respond to criticism because it will only fan the flames of the oppositon.   That was a disastrous mistake as it would have vindicated Bush instead he and the country had to endure a never ending constant barrage of criticism and falsehoods for  five years by the left wing media saying we never found them and ‘Bush lied” that cost the republicans the house and senate. Rove had the idea that the wmd’s were found and the mission resolved and  they had a belief, just let it go because the news cycle will take care of it.  “Okay, they’re calling us chumps today, but there will be a new story tomorrow and everybody will forget about it,” Rove would say.

The article by Times reporter C.J. Chivers focused on U.S. soldiers who suffered from exposure to the sulfur mustard and other nerve gases which emitted from the bombs. According to the story, about “5,000 chemical warheads, shells or aviation bombs” were found scattered across Iraqi soil. The U.S. government buried the cases from both the public and the troops. As a result, injured soldiers did not receive proper medical treatment. They also found 500 tons of yellowcake uranium that was shipped out to Canada and then here to be buried which was Saddam’s nuclear program. I remember reading about finding the yellowcake uranium, but it wasn’t in the national news rather on sites like Drudge or World Net Daily at the time. So Bush didn’t lie as the left loved to say and I hope this revelation coming out now vindicates him.

Recently Rush Limbaugh explained it eloquently and perfectly on his radio show which I have excerpted below:

The issue of Iraq’s WMD remnants was suddenly thrust back into the fore this week, with a blockbuster New York Times report accusing the Bush administration of covering up American troops’ chemically induced wounds. To people familiar with the issue, both inside that administration and outside, the blame for the coverup falls on one particular set of shoulders: Karl Rove’s.”

There are a lot of insiders dumping on Karl Rove here for covering up the news that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.  They weren’t discovered shortly after the invasion.  It took a year or two.  And Rove didn’t want to look back.  He didn’t want to revive the story, so goes the story here.  He just wanted to sweep it under the rug and continue to look forward……..  From the moment the Iraq war began in 2003, the Democrat Party, after a couple days of making it look like they were all for it because public support was, it didn’t take long before the Democrat Party and the media began an ongoing, never-ending 24/7, 365 effort to discredit it, to discredit the effort, to discredit the war, to discredit the motivation. 

(Remember John Kerry saying “I voted for the180 billion before I voted against it.” )?

They did everything they could to undermine every aspect of it, and in the process they drove their own supporters insane with hatred for George W. Bush.  You could arguably say now, since there were weapons of mass destruction, that all of this that happened, all of the mischaracterizations of the military in Iraq — remember John Kerry and Jack Murtha said, oh, they’re racist and they’re terrorists and they’re blowing down doors in homes in Iraq, our troops and the Marines in Haditha. And they were going in and terrorizing women and children. Kerry is out there making this allegation, trying to sabotage the surge before Petraeus had even testified on this. ….. The Democrat Party and the media did everything they could to lose that war and saddle that loss around the neck of George W. Bush.  And of course leading their charge, which they thought gave them credibility, was there weren’t any weapons of mass destruction.  The whole thing was unnecessary. Bush lied, people died, remember all this? 

So in the midst of it we now learn there were weapons of mass destruction, chemical weapons and so forth that were found, military people are coming out of the woodwork now admitting it.  They were told to put a lid on it back then because the Bush administration didn’t want to go back in time.  They had a philosophy in the White House:  Never respond to criticism.  Never defend yourself against any criticism no matter what happens because that’ll just prolong the story.  They had a belief, just let it go because the news cycle will take care of it.  “Okay, they’re calling us chumps today, but there will be a new story tomorrow and everybody will forget about it.” 

That’s not what happened.  All of these charges and all of these allegations just piled on, one on top of another, and it became a full-fledged indictment and an allegation against the entire premise of the Iraq war.  And over half of this country was talked into literal hatred for the administration, for the military, for the war, and even to a certain extent the War on Terror.  And it was unnecessary.  And Rove has even admitted now that one of the big mistakes he made strategically while he was chief of staff of the White House was letting some of these allegations day to day, whatever they were, not just about the Iraq war, but let ‘em all go by and not comment on it.  And he’s absolutely right about that. 

But this one is particularly damaging because those five years of pounding, the five years of never-ending charges that Bush lied, people died, you got the books and the movies on how to assassinate Bush. The disrespect that was foisted upon the US military. The illegitimacy of their existence. The illegitimacy of the mission. The illegitimacy of the Bush administration, and all of that was allowed to happen because somebody decided to not report that they had indeed found weapons of mass destruction.  Man, what a miscalculation.

I hope this vindicates Bush in the history books. Better late than never.  However now ISIS and Syria have the weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq that weren’t collected or destroyed.

His Chickens are Coming Home to Roost !

ObaNose

If you ever want to see real thug-style politics, look no further than the current administration. From day one Mr. Obama has told us that lobbyists would not be welcomed in Washington D.C. and that cronyism would not be tolerated. But as I’ve said before, this White House has no real grasp of the English language with confusing language like; “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” or “I will not sign healthcare legislation that will add one dime to our deficit” or “I refuse… to let Detroit go bankrupt”?

Remember the election 2012. It was a very tight election. Things were not too solid for “El Presidente.” The IRS issue, Benghazi, and the economy not close to the 2% index needed to keep us at the misery level we were at. Unemployment numbers were not good but not that bad after being miraculously adjusted for the 38th month in a row. Remember coming into that election we had a 9/11 anniversary attack where 4 Americans were killed. (With the official account stating that locals were mad about a movie made in America against Mohammed and that sparked an event that only happened to be on 9/11.) Also remember, coming into that election the IRS incident happened because of 2 rogue agents in Ohio. Blah blah blah!

After “early voting,” “late registration,” and “night of voting” registration states reported the election outcome with many precincts having over 100% turnout. Yes, it’s true! Several states reporting the extraordinarily high voter turnout also reported that nearly 100% of those votes were for Mr. Obama! (Almost as miraculous as the real Immaculate Conception!)

As it goes, those on the Left did not cry foul, saying only that the people had spoken. Those on the Right said it’s blatant voter fraud. And the reality is, over the past 2 years they have been proving it was voter fraud precinct by precinct (to be covered in a future piece).

So with all the “work” it took to get elected, I am sure the president needed to payback a few of his workers.

Let’s start off with his latest appointment, the “Ebola Czar” Ron Klain. Mr. Klain has 30 years in the medical arena, having managed many hospitals and emergency disaster readiness programs across the country. (INSERT LOUD BUZZER SOUND HERE) Wrong! It’s what you might expect (and hope) to see on a person’s resume who is responsible for implementing the processes and procedures by which Ebola can be tracked in this country and around the globe. Track how and how easily it’s moving. Implement the procedures to contain it or even prevent it from spreading. How about working with the CDC and State Department to make sure we slow it down or maybe even stop it from entering this country again? You would think so. But, hey, as usual, El Presidente knows better.

Mr. Klain is a political hack. He worked as Chief of Staff for Joe Biden at one time and also worked for AL Gore. (Maybe Ebola is the result of climate change?) He, as is the case with most czars and appointees from this administration, has no real experience in the area he is to be assigned to. Not to worry! Mr. Klain will be reporting to none other than Susan Rice.

In appointing Mr. Klain, Obama will effectively bypass another official, Dr. Nicole Lurie, who has served as Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at the Department of Health and Human Services since July 2009. She obviously didn’t contribute enough!

Let’s jump to his failed pick for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, Debo Adegbile. This was the first time the Democrat-controlled senate refused to push through one of his choices, even they pushed back and said no way. And saying Adegbile is unqualified was an understatement.

Targeting the Anti-Gun Indoctrination Party

By Lee Culpepper

Thanks to the last 50 years of public education, millions of Americans no longer appreciate the difference between facts and feelings. Consequently, when facts hurt their feelings, many Americans just brush off the irrefutable evidence and attack anyone who points out the facts that expose illogical feelings.

When it comes to supporters of the Second Amendment, we see this irrational behavior play out among pro-gun Americans who religiously support the Democrat Party. Now, before anyone feels …read more
