Dallas Rep. says Texas must prove to the nation that the red mega-state can be governed not only conservatively but well.
Good morning Austin.
This is Rep. Dan Branch , R-Dallas, speaking at yesterday’s day-long Texas Conservative Roundtable Policymakers Conference at the Omni downtown.
“Michigan and Ohio were once great economic engines. If i were California I’d be very concerned about the direction of my state. I mean there’s a state that added congressional seats in every decennial census until this last time. Texas added four new congressional seats. No other state added four. No other state added three. Very few added two. We are the states that’s moving and therefore, as everyone pays attention to us, we beter be responsible with that and show that a conservative, red state, right-of-center state, can govern itself and can solve the issues of the day, the problems and challenges of the day.”
That set the tone for the conference, which began with opening remarks by House Speaker Joe Straus, who said conservatives must “recognize that a healthy business climate requires more than low taxes. The people of this state, young and old, urban and rural, want to know Texas will have the water, the roads and the workers that we will need in order to grow.”
There were panels on education, transportation, healthcare, the budget, water and energy. Branch, who chairs the House Higher Education Committee, and others on the education panel, recognized that Texas is a state in some peril.
Bill Hammond , president and CEO of the Texas Association of Business. “Unless we get this issue we’re discussing right, unfortunately Dr. (Steve) Murdock (Rice University demographer) will be right. He’s predicted that by 2040, 30 percent of adult Texans will lack a high school diploma unless we do a beter job of of educating our young people. That’s third world country territory for Texas … Our best educated are old people like me and that’s not good for our future.”
Rep. Jimmie Don Aycock , R-Killeen, co-chair of the Joint Select Committee on Public School Finance. “Unless we turn around the black student, the brown student, the poor white student, our future workforce is dismal.”
Branch said that on education, water, roads and power, Texas had to rise to the occasion.
“If we don’t succeed people will say, OK, you had low taxation, you had light regulation, but you failed in the most fundamental areas of limited government, you didn’t invest in infrastructure, you had a massive influx of people – 1,200 a day – and you failed to secure your future.”
It was hard to know exactly what to make of the Texas Conservative Roundtable, which is only about a year old. The lead organizer of yesterday’s conference was Chuck Hahn of Southlake, a Texan of relatively recent vintage who served as chief of staff to California State Senate Republican leader, Dave Cogdill.
AgendaWise last year traced some of its funding indirectly to Straus.
The conference had its corporate sponsors: BP America, ANGA, Pioneer Natural Resources USA, AT&T Services, the Texas Farm Bureau, Wagner Oil, America’s Natural Gas Alliance, Hayden Oil & Gas and Gategreen Partners.
From Straus, who opened the day, to critical legislators like Branch, who peopled its panels, to Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst , who closed the day, it had heavyweight participation. But to call attendance light would be generous. Never more than 50 and sometimes fewer than 20.
“The whole point of this is not to have an agenda but to have a conversation,” said Dallas attorney Brigham McCown , a member of the TCR board.
But, almost as soon as it was formed, TCR issued a legislative scorecard for the last session and, after it develops an agenda for this session based on conversations like yesterday’s, it will do the same for this session.
Gromer Jeffers reports in The Dallas Morning News that Branch is considering running for attorney general if Greg Abbott decides to seek another office.
“It’s not a burp; it’s barely a fart.”
That’s how California Gov. Jerry Brown dismissed Gov. RIck Perry’s California radio ads inviting California businesses to relocate to the greener pastures of Texas. The Dallas Morning News’ Wayne Slater reported that at media availability at a UPS distribution center Tuesday, Brown said the measly $24,000 radio ad buy, paid for by TexasOne, a public-private partnership, was too piddling to be taken seriously.
“If they want to get in the game, let them spend $25 million on radio and television. Then I’ll take them seriously,” said Brown.
Machine Gun Morgan
CNN host Piers Morgan, who backs an assault weapons ban, brought his show to a gun store in Katy, Texas, Monday night, where he tried firing a machine gun and interviewed Attorney General Greg Abbott , who, when asked why anyone would need such weaponry, answered: “The [Mexican] cartels and the drug dealers are crossing the border confronting ranchers on an ongoing basis in the state of Texas. They deserve, under the Second Amendment, to have the ability to meet force with force, which is what the Second Amendment guarantees. So these ranchers need to be able to protect themselves.”
On his Facebook page, Gov. Rick Perry , wrote that he and “all Texas law-abiding gun owners hope that Piers Morgan enjoyed Texas. He failed, however, to convince anyone that citizens should lose the ability to protect themselves and their families by having their 2nd Amendment rights and freedoms taken from them.” [......]
Today I watched the first Formula 1 car race in this year’s season. Many ask me why I like this so much. Well, the answer is pretty simple, It is a race, one-driver-against-another, but at the same time it is a team sport.
Every Team, let’s say Red Bull Racing who holds the current world championship, has two drivers in the field who compete against each other and both drivers also fight for the so called Team-Championship.
In every race the drivers collect points and also the team collects points for technical improvements based on placing’s of the drivers. So it is just normal that at a certain point, when it is obvious a certain driver can’t win the world championship anymore (based on the collected points) he takes one for the team, protects the leading racer, and keeps the competitors back no matter if he likes his team partner or not – for the team championship.
What does this have to do with politics you ask? Everything – A Presidential race is not much different. We are at a point in the race where some contenders can’t win and it is time to take one for the team.
We have 4 Racers in the challenge Santorum, Romney, Gingrich, and Paul and 1 Team the GOP, the problem right now is nobody wants to take one for the team.
And while GOP contenders are busy smearing one another, throwing dirt on one another, and fighting senseless trench warfare on one another Obama has an easy game.
For the sitting president this election is like a 90yard rush into the end zone, touchdown included, with no defensive line there to try and block him.
All he has needed to do is sit back and quietly plan his strategy, and thanks to the ridiculous amount of GOP Debates he knows perfectly well what their strategy is.
And not only that:
Obama also places laws prohibiting every citizen from protesting against him without GOP candidates even reacting.
Obama Mocks the GOP contenders on gasoline prices – with no backtalk whatsoever (Watch the YouTube Video here)
Sends his VP Joe Biden into election mode spreading the word that the GOP has no clue about the middle class (of course in front of a crowd where the dinner cost $ 10,000 a plate).
And the list just continues.
Voters and activists
In the 2010 Midterm election we all stood together, tall and united, knowing what was at stake.
But just like the candidates, the Voters are back where they were in 2008; everybody against everybody and no shoulder-to-shoulder standing whatsoever.
When I look at my network and read the comments I actually want to cry.
I can’t vote for Santorum because………..
I can’t vote for Romney because……..
I can’t Vote for Gingrich or Paul because……………..
He is a RINO, he is big Government, no he is not a RINO, no he is not Big Government, bla, bla, bla – it makes me sick.
My favorite line is: I can’t vote for either and before I vote for the second best I would rather not vote at all. Now this one really makes me sick.
EVERY VOTE NOT PLACED IS A VOTE FOR OBAMA
IF YOU DON’T VOTE YOU DON’T HAVE ANY RIGHT TO COMPLAIN
Here is a little lesson in political reality. My favorite candidate would be Lt. Col. Ret. Congressman Allen West of Florida, but he won’t run.
And since politics is not a “musical request program”, and unless anyone of the voters out there has the magic “Jeannie in the Bottle” that can bring the perfect candidate with a blink of her eye we all have to face reality, and pick one that is there.
And that brings me to the candidates
Who is left in the pool of candidates some like, some don’t. Nevertheless it is the best we’ve got right now and the true agenda in “The most important election in America’s history” is to kick Obama out, PERIOD.
Here is my question to the contenders (or some of them): Why do you run in the first place?
a) You run because you are truly interested in saving America
Then it is time to face political reality. Re-evaluate your chances by reality and not mathematical possibility and do the right thing.
Maybe you want to take from the example of Governor Rick Perry (R-TX), who was humble enough to know he is not going to win and took “one for the team”.
b) You run because you are probably at an age where you think this is your last chance to gain the highest Office in the Country if not in the world
Then you better get out of the way. Your knuckle-biting does not serve anybody but Obama. This is not the time for personal conceitedness. We already have a self-absorbed narcissist in the office.
Where do we stand?
Whether you like it or not the fact is, based on delegate count, this has become a two-man-race between Mitt Romney (496) and Rick Santorum (236), with Newt Gingrich (141) and Ron Paul (66) pulling up the rear.
I was pretty much one of the first that brought up Newt Gingrich for President in 2011.
But I also was excited about Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann, and not to mention that I was still praying for Lt. Col. Ret. Congressman West to reconsider and run. Reality speaks a different language and I have had have to face it too.
No matter where you stand on any candidate, the chances for Gingrich or Paul to still win the primaries are less than slim.
Ron Paul had his fun, and everybody agrees that some of his plans are absolutely the best choice for America. Bring our troops home, stop spending money on Wars we have no business being in, and keep our Money at home. But also some of his ideas are, well let’s say a good comedy. End the war on drugs by legalizing them? Give me a break.
He can’t win, that is also a fact. For a smart man like Congressman Paul it is time to endorse one of the front-runners and start supporting him.
Newt Gingrich had 2 resurrections already, but based on the recent numbers the chance of a third is dismal. He lost as a southerner in the Deep South against “Yankee” Santorum. That should be a message.
Another fact is that every political analyst from USA today to the Tea Party economist agrees that neither Newt Gingrich nor Rick Santorum can win if they both continue to stay in the race, BUT – together they can beat Obama.
Rick Santorum already mentioned that he would consider Newt Gingrich as Vice President. So – where is the problem Mr. Gingrich?
Be a sport, be humble like Perry and take one for the team, take one FOR AMERICA
This is a win-win situation for all of us. Gingrich gets his place in the white House, he can take on sleeping disorder VP Joe Biden, and battle him in debates, coach Rick Santorum to beat Obama in debates, while sharing with Santorum his profound knowledge and experience, and together fight for a renewed America.
That way we can make this what it already is – a two-man race between Santorum and Romney, and then the voters decide once and for all.
Meanwhile Newt Gingrich can start taking on Obama and his policies at every turn in order to prevent Obama from spreading his election message un-challenged.
And finally, (I’m almost begging here) close the frontline against our combined enemy Obama.
Candidates, Voters, Activist
This is a message to both, the candidates and the voters.
Stop smearing, whining, and nagging and acting like a spoiled 5 year old brat – or BOTH OF YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF OBAMA FASCISM WITH ONLY YOURSELF TO BLAME
We can’t always have what we want, but we have one combined goal and that is SAVING AMERICA FROM OBAMA or see AMERICA GO ALL THE WAY DOWN
And I said it before and say it again to the Voters – you might not like the current choice, but the only other choice is 4 more years of Obama. So
FACE THE DAM REALITY AND VOTE
FOR THE MOST AMAZING SHINING CITY ON THE HILL
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

March 5, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – While Pepsi has been in the spotlight lately for contracting with a company that uses cells originally derived from an aborted fetus in flavor research, it’s not the only company that pro-lifers should think about boycotting for such unethical practices, reports the National Catholic Register.
Rebecca Taylor, a Technologist in Molecular Biology, has compiled a list of companies that use cells and tissues derived from aborted babies to develop their products, which range from childhood vaccines to cosmetics. Her list includes one English company, ReNeuron, which has applied for clinical trials in the United States.
Here are the companies, with their contact information. To find out more about how these companies use cells derived from aborted fetuses, read the piece at the National Catholic Register.

The Florida Primary is over; Mitt Romney won over Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum with Ron Paul coming in last.
When listening to the conservative Tea Party Network and knowing that over 150 Tea Party organizations supported Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, and that they both had support from the most conservative leaders in America it really makes me wonder how could a Mitt Romney victory happen?
But the main question is was this really a victory of the voters or was this a GOP establishment manipulated primary?
The best election money can buy as PJ Tatler on Pajamas media calls it.
Ever since the Midterm elections of 2010, a broad front of conservative voters united under a group called “The Tea Party”. They wanted to take the Grand Ol’ party back from the establishment, renew the conservative cause we once so proudly defended, and kick the RINO’s out of power. Successfully, we showed the GOP what true conservative voters are capable of when we helped them take back the House of Representatives – Something the odds were against.
However, since the GOP likes to go along to get along they want to silence the Tea Party in order to maintain their established power.
Grand Ol’ Party – Once the flag ship for Christian conservative values, honesty, integrity, limited government, and power through WE THE PEOPLE. It represented the “American Dream” of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – NOT ANYMORE.
The GOP today is diversity preaching and engaged in all sorts of foul play just like the Liberals to hold on to their power. It’s a tug of war in the same mud. They no longer care about the voice of the people, the voters; they just care about keeping the status quo and keeping the “establishment” in tact. It’s no wonder why WE THE PEOPLE have lost all confidence and trust in our so-called representation.
And yet the answer to right the ship is so simple. Stop being politicians and start being Statesman again. Stand up for less government and fiscal responsibility no matter what the cost, and keep your word.
However, instead of seizing the momentum of The Tea Party to strengthen the Republican Party so that Obama can be defeated the GOP does the opposite – THEY DECLARE WAR on their base the true conservative American voters.
THEY DECLARE WAR ON US – THEIR VOTERS and SUPPORTERS – UNBELIEVABLE
Instead of uniting the Conservatives and independents under one flag by working with them they divide the Conservative base even more, playing right in the hands of the Democrats – and for what?
Rush Limbaugh proved in ‘Real Clear Politics’ that the GOP’s joined forces with The New York Times declaring War on its own voters.
Limbaugh on Real Clear Politics: Bill Kristol on the Tea Party: “It’s an infantile form of conservatism.” Scott Reed, veteran strategist and lobbyist: “I think it’s waning now,” talking to the reporter of the story about the Tea Party’s influence. “Party leaders have managed to bleed some of the anti-establishment intensity out of the movement, Reed said, by slyly embracing Tea Party sympathizers in Congress, rather than treating them as ‘those people.’ Did he mean to say that the party was slowly co-opting the Tea Partiers? ‘Trying to,’ Reed said. ‘And that’s the secret to politics: trying to control a segment of people without those people recognizing that you’re trying to control them.’” This is a Republican consultant talking about how to neutralize the Tea Party. (Continue reading and watch the Video here)
Bottom Line is….
The GOP does not want a true conservative President in 2012. A true conservative President running on the principles of “Reagan Conservatism” for limited Government, Constitutional America, fewer regulations, less Taxes, and more power back to “We the people” would cramp their style.
The GOP wants a GOP puppet like John Boehner, who became Speaker of the House with help from the Tea Party (that we were good enough for), but as soon as he held the hammer in his hand he became a good GOP soldier representing power preservation, backdoor deals, and the betrayal of principles rather than standing up for true conservatism.
GOP Establishment/Elite (RINO’s) vs. Tea Party
The GOP establishment complains that grassroots Conservatives call them RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only) – Well, what else do you call people who “claim” to hold to conservative principles while running for office, but as soon as they’re elected they play “flip flop-balancing act politics” betraying and selling out everything the people believe in.
They add insult to injury by calling their own voter base “Grass Root Radicals”. And the GOP wonders why they lose elections.
Just take 2008 presidential candidate John McCain – He is the perfect example of a fence riding RINO that I can possibly think of.
McCain even dared to attack the Republican Tea Party Base as “Hobbits”.
Well, here is a message to Mr. McCain: The hobbits were the hero’s in the movie “Lord of the Rings” and typified the little underestimated underdog that conquers the big overpowering evil with determination and bravery, never abandoning the path of honor and faith.
Next time you want to insult “Us” Senator McCain – First get your facts straight or at least watch the movie. I am proud to be a hobbit.
And that is why the GOP prefers a Mitt Romney over a Newt Gingrich or a Rick Santorum. Romney is the perfect presidential version of John Boehner. A true party soldier who will make sure that he will not forget those who helped him into office, and I’m not talking about the voters I’m talking about the GOP.
Newt Gingrich IS a walking hand grenade for the GOP Establishment (and I say that with the highest respect) because he does not cater to them or their distortion of facts. He wants to change the establishment not preserve it, heeding the will of the people, and proving he is not a party soldier, but a leader – And that is NOT what the GOP establishment wants.
Rick Santorum is considered to be the “most conservative,” but has nowhere near the experience nor the record of achievements that Gingrich has to really threaten the GOP. And in my opinion, the GOP is giving Santorum just enough money to keep him in the race in order to derail Gingrich and assure Romney the victory.
Romney vs. Gingrich
After his victory in Florida Romney declared he wants to unite the GOP. How does he want to unite what he, together with the Party have previously divided through trench warfare?
Does he really think he can first artillery everything we believe in and then just miraculously say, oh now it’s over, and we are all one big happy family?
2012 Presidential election
If the GOP continues to fight against their base instead of listening to them this will be the last election for the GOP as a grand old party.
The call for a third party, widely ignored the past 3 years, becomes louder and louder. We are fed up that the elite think they can rule over our head. We are fed up with being treated like stubborn dumb children.
Let me make this clear Mr. Preibus, Chairman of the GOP:
YOU AND THE ELITE DO NOT OWN THE PARTY – WE THE REPUBLICAN VOTERS DO
And the winner is……
….Barrack Hussein Obama and the Democratic Party. The GOP financed trench warfare only plays into the hands of the radical fascist Obama regime. All they need to do is sit back and watch how we maul each other.
In 2010 we gave the GOP a chance to prove that they could do more than give lip service… They failed.
All they needed to do was keep their promises and work WITH us and not AGAINST us… They failed.
Let’s hope and pray that at least the Tea Party voters can look beyond the polls, take one for the team, and vote for whom we really think can kick Obama out of office.
And maybe after 2012 start a third party – a true conservative TEA PARTY OF WE THE CONSTITUIONALIST PEOPLE
For God and Country, and the most amazing City on the Hill

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last
With the world on the brink of a new war with Iran and with a half a dozen other Muslim countries posturing against Israel, and shouting death to the West, Obama has announced his new military strategy: NDAA Act H.R. 1540 – Military cuts.
Since the Arab Spring started many conservative Bloggers and columnists warned about the danger of the radical “Muslim Brotherhood” emerging to power all over the Muslim dominated world from Northern Africa to the Middle East.
These warnings have been widely ignored. On the contrary, left wing biased mainstream Media, always good for diversity preaching and ignoring facts, not only ignored, but on top of that covered up obvious signs of radicalism within this grouping (Middle Eastern Forum – Muslim Brotherhood Declares ‘Mastership of World’ as Ultimate Goal).
The Governmental officials even went a step further in cooperation with Muslim interest groups such as CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood USA, ACLU, and similar affiliated radical groups, by trying to stop conservative bloggers and columnists from showing the truth and the reality of this situation.
The last idea was a summit held by the U.S. State department with radical Muslim organizations to dismantle the 1st Amendment rights and produce a law that would outlaw any anti-Islam and Islam affiliated publishing as inflammatory speech.
And if that isn’t bad enough Obama and his “Muslim bowing” goonies did, and still do, continue to endorse the Muslim Brotherhood calling upon the world to give this “Secular” organization a chance – Secular – sure, like the Pope is not Catholic.
Sometimes I’m not sure if it’s pure ignorance, stupidity, incompetency, or worse, by design, but the facts are there and this is a nightmare for Israel, caused by the Obama administration in cooperation with the UN and European Union.
But history has shown that no fascist government can avoid the truth long term. And this time the truth and the facts have already hit us square in the face.
As Newsmax reports:
3. Muslim Brotherhood Deputy: We’ll Cancel Israel Treaty
The deputy leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called Israel a “criminal enemy” and threatened to cancel the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.
In an interview with the Arabic daily al-Hayat, Dr. Rashad Bayoumi was asked if the government of Egypt is required to recognize Israel. He responded: “This is not an option. Whatever the circumstances, we do not recognize Israel at all. It’s an occupying criminal enemy.”
He said no Muslim Brotherhood member will ever negotiate with Israelis: “I will not allow myself to sit down with criminals.”
He also said the Brotherhood would take legal action toward canceling the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel that was signed in 1979.
“The Brotherhood respects international conventions, but we will take legal action against the peace treaty with the Zionist entity,” he said in the interview.
The Muslim Brotherhood won 36.3 percent of the vote in the second round of Egyptian elections, while the ultra-conservative Salafi al-Nour Party received 28.8 percent, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Egyptians are voting for a parliament that will help draft a new constitution following the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year regime.
Bayoumi, a Cairo University professor, has served as the Brotherhood’s Deputy General Guide.
Iran, Egypt, Syria, and Tunisia – all of those countries don’t seem to have anything to do with each other and the mainstream media, in compliance with the Obama administration, want to tell us that these are isolated incidents and occurrences, but they are not.
This is just more of a joint effort by radical Muslims to destroy Israel and Western Civilization in order to have a one world under Allah.
How are they connected?
Is an isolated Country under a radical leader and controlled by the Mullah’s who hold most of the oil in that region. President Ahmendinejad has on several occasions made it clear that the true “goal of a Muslim is the martyrdom” and he is determined to “wipe Israel off the face of the earth”.
And while the whole world is whining about whether Iran does, or does not have the nuclear capability for a nuclear weapon the truth is this entire issue is nothing but a diversion from the bigger picture. Iran already has enough conventional rocket missiles to attack Israel and Europe at the same time.
And the Europeans, who now behave like cowards, in cooperation with the UN will do anything to please Iran even if that means destroying Israel.
This was mostly controlled by the Muslim brotherhood doing the smartest thing they could do… Stand down, not to appear too public, and wait until the whole civil war was over in order to take the victory.
Their passiveness blindfolded the western countries under the leadership of the worlds #1 do-gooder, the UN, who immediately jumped in to rescue the poor and oppressed protesters demanding only one thing, democracy.
Democracy – my butt, the Muslim Brotherhood has picked up the pieces and is now in the process of controlling all those countries with Sharia Law. Which brings me right to…………….
Job well done Mr. Obama. We all are d’accord that Mubarak was a dictator and needed to go, but instead of replacing this Dictator with a Western and America-friendly Israeli accepting new Government, you, the UN, and the EU allowed for the uncontrolled riots to rage hailing them as democracy building.
And the result is: The Muslim Brotherhood is now the most powerful force. American and Israeli flag burning protests are occurring (isn’t that nice – first we “Free” those jerks and then they show their gratitude by burning our flags and protesting against us) and now MB announces that they are going to nullify the Peace treaty with Israel.
Democracy the wrong way – asking the declared enemy, radical Muslims and Nazi hatemonger’s, if they want peace.
Again Mubarak was a dictator and needed to go, but he also was the guarantor of the peace treaty with Israel.
“President” Assad is, just like Mubarak, a tyrant and a dictator, and sooner or later needs to go, BUT he is also the guarantor of the Weapons-hold-Status with Israel. And you cannot count on the UN peacekeeping force (UNDOF – United Nations Disengagement Observer Force) because as the name already says this is an observer force with “pack and retreat” orders as soon as shots are fired.
But again WARNING – the so called Democracy protesters in Syria are just like in Egypt under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood who again, just like in Egypt, does not appear publically because they’re waiting for the western do-gooder to clean up the mess for them so they can pick up the victory.
As soon as Assad falls the MB will take over and Iran will be right on Israel’s doorstep with nobody stopping them.
PLO (there is no Palestine)
With over 7 Million Palestinians surrounding Israel in Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, West-Jordan Land, and Jordan itself the weak PLO interim government is just about to bring Hamas back into it.
Now, it is not rocket science to know that Hamas is not only supported, but also financed by Iran and has, just like Iran, sworn an oath never to accept Israel, but destroy Israel.
United States under Obama
And what is America’s answer to these threats? Well, Obama is doing what Obama always does, he bows to the Muslims and his Czars from Eric Holder all the way down the list to try and destroy freedom of speech. Wanting to make any criticism of Muslims a “hate-crime” law with NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act for 2012).
This act would cut military spending and allow arrests to take place without proper procedure turning America into an Obama-fascist state.
On the brink of a Muslim uprising and world war he is cutting our Armed Forces.
Is this strategic idiocy or purely on purpose to force Israel, by blackmail, back into the Borders of 1967? This is after all what Obama wanted all along plus it gives the Palestinians what they want – A hatemonger country ready and willing to deal Israel the final deathblow.
There is not much to conclude here, since even a blind person (except of course left wing liberal democrats fascists and diversity-dreamers) can see the boiling point.
Make up your own mind about this, but the evidence is there. My prayers are with Israel and my support as well.

Now that 2011 has passed and 2012 is here, the battle to take our country back continues.
The past year we had a marathon of GOP Presidential debates and different candidates taking the lead.
Throughout the entire debates the topics were always the same and then slightly adjusted to fit the current happenings in the world.
And so were the answers. All, and I really mean all, candidates were trying to give the right answers to appear “conservative”, but yet cautiously diplomatic to assure not to offend, insult, or really attack anybody, outside of each other. In other words a disappointing PR-show that leaves me to the point where after hours of debates I am still not convinced as of who to give my vote to.
None of them seems to be willing to grab the hot coals with their bare hands and give those answers, which many grassroots conservatives want to hear.
How to get America back to work
This is the one constant in every debate, and every candidate is determined to prove how “Reagan Conservative” they are in reciting, like a mantra, the “same ol’-same ol’” policy of lowering taxes, deregulating, and so on.
Only Newt Gingrich shortly mentioned one of the real issues, leaving that hot-coal-topic immediately and not going into details, and that is UNIONS.
One extremely important solution to get America back to work is to break the power-neck of the Unions.
In theory Unions are a private-non-governmental-organization sponsored by the Federal Government and should provide “Legal Assistance to Workers who’s constitutional and Legal Rights as employees are violated”.
However, Unions stopped “being” that a long time ago. Like most things, the initial idea is good, but then greed breeds corruption. They are a criminal Mafia style Organization and nobody seems to care or is too scared to do anything about it.
The fact that the sitting President, Obama, has an affiliation with criminals is evident; — Not without a reason he calls Second Generation Mafia boss “Jimmy Hoffa Jr.” his buddy (and he IS the son of a Mafia gangster) and plays golf during Christmas with a school friend who has been arrested in Prostitution charges.
In my opinion, this major entity that determines and influences politics has been misusing federal funds in order to funnel it back to the Democratic Party to keep control of their interests, without the average person the wiser. This is obscene and illegal, but unfortunately it has been going on for decades. In a nutshell, our government subsidizes criminal enterprise and there seems to be no politician willing to take them on.
In some states you cannot even acquire a contract as a contractor if you don’t pay your dues (in my book of law that is called: danegeld) to the Unions and submit to hire Union workers only. And if you refuse – well accidents happen all the time. This is clearly “criminal”, but normal since politicians and judges look the other way.
Unions are assured with their election contribution, their re-election.
And the very same Politicians and Judges grant the Unions the right to intervene in Companies decisions to either produce or preserve employment.
The fact is that in the past 6 months alone Unions have caused or endangered over 130,000 Jobs in the United States either by stopping to build a Boeing plant in South Carolina (a right to work State and mentioned by Newt Gingrich) or by stonewalling any negotiations with American Airlines which jeopardized over 130,000 Jobs and retirees.
Breaking the neck of the Unions and putting them back into their place is not only a small, but also a necessary key element to get America back to work. That is why I desperately want to hear the following statements from a candidate:
1) I will make America a “Right to work nation” and make this a “Constitutional Amendment”
2) I will audit the Unions and assure that funds given to this private institution are used proper to secure the constitutional and legal rights of American workers and workers under “legal Status”, otherwise Unions will be defunded
3) I will make a clear commitment that Unions are a private representation and membership is voluntarily, and Unions are NOT to make policy or politics, but have only one duty – representation when asked for
But, I guess that is wishful thinking because everyone remembers what happened to Robert Kennedy.
None of the candidates are willing to call things by their name when it comes to National Security. I agree, of course, that the two main pillars of National Security are financial independence (bringing the budget in order) and America’s military strength and position in the world. But there is a third Pillar, which gets completely ignored and that is National Security at home.
We don’t need to look for Muslim Terrorists in foreign countries they are already here; and they do a marvelous job of infiltrating our nation through their so-called “Representations”.
Of course not every Muslim is a Terrorist but 99% of all terrorists are Muslims.
Instead of cooperating with Law-enforcement Muslims take the position of “Victims of Discrimination” using this policy to avoid any cooperation and play the “Victim Card”.
Financing Terrorists all over the world, dismantling our Constitution, and trying to sneak Sharia Law into our court rooms calling it cultural heritage is NOT assimilation nor the practice of freedom of religion it is clear infiltration to take over our country.
And to make things worse, Hillary Clinton and the State Department just held a summit with Arab Nations to strike down the 1st Amendment making critics of Islam a crime under the pretence of “Inflammatory Speech”.
The UN sponsored this summit and the role model is similar to European Laws, which already bow to the Muslims.
I was actually waiting for one candidate to condemn this meeting in the last debate – BUT NOTHING.
Fact is, in order to assure a strong National Security we first need to establish a strong National Identity and that is, or should be, a clear commitment by the Candidates to a Judeo-Christian Heritage.
But that one is missing as well.
A fourth pillar to a strong National Security is a strong National Independency.
Again, what I am missing with every candidate is the clear commitment to defund financially and withdraw politically from this senseless organization and make a clear statement that any interference in domestic issues through Agenda 21 or other policies will only result in a final disembarkation of this criminal corrupt organization.
This would not only strengthen America’s position, but also save us billions of Dollars as Ann-Marie Murrell of PolitiChicks stated with utmost precision in her column “Some Simple Solutions to our National Debt” on Patriot Update.
Kicking the UN would therefore be a double monumental victory for America. Saving us tons of money as Ann-Marie says, and making us independent from the UN, which would strengthen our Sovereignty.
This is just an excerpt of what bothers me with those debates.
Nothing but a lot of blah-blah, repetition, and the very same diplomatic packed political correct standard message hoping to please the conservative voters, but yet making sure that the other side is not offended.
Many of the conservative and independent voters are still undecided. You might think since we’re so close to the primaries that the candidates have convinced us who would be the best equipped for the job and who would truly and truthfully represent us, but I hear in my network all the time that it’s quite the opposite.
As long as the candidates are not willing to hit the nail on the head and call things as they are and walk away from the standard answers (Lord have mercy they have preached them so many times to us – I can recite those answers in advance), and give us the “right” answers, this election will be just another fiasco with nothing but RINO’s.
So please all you candidates out there – TELL US THE TRUTH; GET TO THE POINT AND START REPRESENTING US AND NOT POLITICS – WE THE PEOPLE fight for America, we work our behinds off to save this Nation, and the last thing we want or need is another flip-flopping coward – what we need is a tough conservative candidate to beat Obama and return the government to the people.
GOD BLESS AMERICA

As 2011 draws to a close with only 36 hours left, it is time to reflect on the good and the worst of the past year.
I am not sure if “it was an exciting” year is the right term to describe 2011, since so many awful things happened so let’s say it was “eventful”.
I was just going through my files and though I have not saved everything I did roughly save around 4200 articles.
4200 articles of Governmental, and especially Obama administration produced obstruction of: justice, failure, fraud, criminal behavior, Terrorist attacks on our soil, whitewashing news, Mainstream media ignorance, preliminary GOP candidacy with rising and falling candidates, downgrading of the U.S. by S&P, Muslim infiltration, step by step destruction of our Constitution, radical Judges, and the list just goes on.
Truth is, if I want to mention everything this column is going to become a 100-page book.
I guess it is time to close out the year.
But, I also want to reflect on the good sides and give thanks. I want to thank my God and savior Jesus Christ for all the blessings he has given me. Without his unimaginable love and support I would not have accomplished anything.
I want to take a moment and welcome the troops back home from Iraq, though I still believe we should not have left there I AM EXTREMLEY GREATFUL FOR YOUR SAFE RETURN – and to those who still fight all over the world for our freedom and liberty, and defend the same with their sacrifice of self.
THANK YOU – THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE
MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU IN 2012
I want to give grace to Annette, who continuously reads my blogs and columns, edits them and has saved my six a lot of times from getting out of line and/or a suit in a court of law. Thanks, I Love You.
I also want to say thank you to my facebook friends, twitter followers, and supporters for their patience with me as well as their continuing friendship and many times for their inspiration.
Mark Eberle, Ann-Marie Murrell, Jaqueline Lang, and Suzanne Sharer just to name a few, and so many others who fought with me side by side defending our great Nation and Constitution against the fascist imposter Obama and his radical goonies.
Thank you my friends, I love you all.
Without you this year would not have been as successful in sharing the truth as it was, and without you I would not have accomplished anything.
Thank you Ann-Marie for making me “Conservative Rockstar in July” I am still blushing and I have that article framed on my wall.
We also now have our own conservative Talk Show Called “PolitiChicks.tv” which appears twice a week and is published over Patriot Update and available on their own website starring: Ann-Marie Murrell, Jennie Jones, Jannique Stewart and the amazing funny Victoria Jackson.
You see, this year also had so many good things to offer and I am truly grateful for all my friends and all the blessings.
And last, but not least
Thank you to all my faithful readers for your continued support in reading my blogs and for your comments.
Your support showed me that I must be doing something right and for you I research, work hard, and write to bring you not only the truth from my perspective, but also my five cents worth of opinion. THANK YOU – LOVE YA’LL
I also won’t forget those who disagreed with me and took it upon themselves to insult me and call me names.
The latter just proved to me that when radical liberal goonies run out of arguments they fall into foul language and personal insults, and that proves to me that I must have hit the nail on the head many times.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012
We now look at a new year and this one will be as eventful as the departed.
Starting with the Iowa caucus, preliminary GOP elections, and then the Presidential Election, which is just around the corner. We are going to face one of the most brutal and dirty presidential elections in American History and it will take all of our energy to kick Obama out of Office.
And don’t be fooled, the mainstream media and the Obama Election machine will use every dirty little trick to shut us down so we better unite together, close the gaps, and stand shoulder to shoulder for God and Country.
In this spirit I want to wish all my readers, fans, and supporters
A MARVELOUS, SUCCESSFUL, AND WONDERFUL
May God’s blessings be with you and with America and may we prevail in 2012 taking back our Country from the Muslims and fascist left wing radical traitors
GOD BLESS AMERICA
