Christine O'Donnell Fires Back

From GretaWire

Christine O'Donnell fires back at criticism of Christine and Tea Party

".... I think that it is inappropriate to insult the judgment of the majority of Republicans in Nevada and Delaware and that the implication that nominating RINOs somehow means we win was irrefutably disproven by McCain's own presidential candidacy debacle. After that nightmare, McCain had to veer right so fast he almost got whiplash from all his flip-flopping just to keep his Senate seat. It doesn't help him to attack those conservatives and Tea Partiers who graciously gave him another chance to keep his job...."

Ouch!  Boy did that leave a mark.

Christine O'Donnell Fights Back

Weeks after Christine O'Donnell U.S. Attorney's Office dismissed a politically motivated and fraudulent lawsuit stating Christine misused campaign contributions, she is fighting back.  Today, she announced she has filed a lawsuit asking the Internal Revenue Services to strip Citizens for the Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) of their 501(c)3 tax-exempt status.

Christine O'Donnell, and ChristinePAC attorney Cleta Mitchell appeared on Fox and Friends this morning to kick off the media event surrounding this lawsuit.  The media event is important to inform the public of the abuses by CREW of U.S. tax code, and why their tax status must be revoked.

The basis of this lawsuit is simple. Since CREW misused its own campaign donors funds, and U.S. taxpayers funds due to its tax-exempt status in political campaigns, it violated IRS tax law.  Here's how they fail the litmus test of a true tax-exempt 501(c)3:

  • CREW Director Melanie Sloan, former aide to now VP Joe Biden uses parents''complaint' to file baseless lawsuit against Christine O'Donnell.  Proof complainant is parents of Melanie Sloan here.
  • By filing baseless lawsuit CREW knowingly and willingly misuse state federal resources (FEC, FBI, U.S. Attorney Office) to investigate a fraudulent claim.
  • CREW historically only goes after Republicans (80% vs 20% for Democrats), which proves CREW is politically motivated to derail Republicans.  This partisan behavior violates U.S. tax code for a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
Let's hope justice is served here, and CREW's tax-exempt status is revoked.  In our opinion, the law is the law and CREW overstepped the boundaries of the law.  And now they need to pay the consequences.

John McCain Attacks Tea Party, Conservative Principles

Senator John McCain has lost it.  He has shown his true colors in a  Wall Street Journal editorial where he attacked the Tea Party and conservatives for holding to their principles in the debt ceiling debate.

Before we get into why John McCain is wrong, it's important to note that John McCain is no conservative. John McCain has been part of the combine (h/t to Ann Barnhardt) for that one.  Throughout his Senate career he has shown that he is a big government Republican.

In the editorial found here, John McCain derails conservatives and members of the Tea Party Caucus for criticizing House Speaker John Boehner's recent bills.  McCain incorrectly states that the the conservatives have no alternatives.  When in fact they do - it's called Cut, Cap and Balance.  It's important to note that John McCain was absent or didn't vote on Cut Cap and Balance last Friday evening.

McCain's poor use of comedic humor while attacking the Tea Party proves he is out of touch with the mandate the voters gave by giving the Republicans the House last November.  His attack on Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell, both 2010 U.S. Senate Republican nominees is beyond pale:

"This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell into GOP Senate nominees."

Really, John McCain.  Was this really necessary?

You prove what a lot of conservatives knew about you during the 2008 Presidential Election.  We voted for you only because Sarah Palin was on the ticket.  But with this, you prove that you are no different than Barack Obama and your progressive stripes are glowing louder and louder.

Perhaps if you voted last Friday in support of Cut, Cap and Balance and exemplified leadership to get a few more on-board, we would have have a winning solution to the debt crisis. Get on board, or leave running the country for the adults.

Delaware GOP Chair: Obama Irresponsible for Rejecting Bi-Partisan Debt Limit Deal

WILMINGTON – Today, after it was reported that President Obama rejected a bipartisan debt ceiling plan that would have raised the debt ceiling and cut spending based on political purposes, Delaware Republican Party Chairman John Sigler released the following statement:

“President Obama’s willingness to put his re-election campaign ahead of the well-being of our nation is at the height of irresponsibility.  Rejecting a deal based solely on political expedience once again shows that our president is concerned about one thing, his own job,” said Chairman Sigler.

It has been widely reported that President Obama desperately wants a large debt limit increase that will take him past the next presidential election.

“President Obama was elected to lead our nation after a campaign of hope and change, but today shows that he is unwilling or unable to lead when it matters.  While our president drags his feet at the risk of our nation’s economy, Republicans under the leadership of Speaker Boehner will continue to work on a framework aimed at preventing default that includes enacting spending reforms and cuts greater than a debt limit hike,” concluded Chairman Sigler.

Is 2012, America’s Last Stand?

Clearly, despite the decisive victory in 2010 where Republicans took back the lower chamber of Congress.  But one has to ask, is 2012 America’s last stand?  Let’s explore why and why not.

Politically, 2012 is a must win election for Republicans.  Republicans must take back the Senate and White House if we are to have a fighting chance to reverse the economic and moral decline imposed by President Obama and the Democratic Party.  Locally, 2012 is a absolute must-win for the Delaware Republican Party where the GOP must at least win back the General Assembly.

Nationally, the implications on the economy and moral systems are at stake should the Democrats retain the Senate and White House, and even worse if they re-take the House.  If the worst case scenario occurs, Americans can expect continued advances of progressive programs to steal more money from American taxpayers.   The probability of repealing Obamacare will be absolute zero.  Continued encroachments on the civil liberties of Americans will continue, eroding all liberties espoused in the U.S. Constitution.  

If travelers think the aggressive scans and pat downs at the airports are out of line, what will government proposed next if progressives continue to reign in power? 
If Americans think their freedom to speech and assemble are in danger now due to increased presence of a police state, what freedoms will Americans have in the future?
If Americans think that they are being told how raise their child as they see fit, or eat what they want now, what will those rights be down the road?

The liberties of Americans are eroding with each passing day that progressives are in power.  The nanny state mentality in their eyes is simply government stating they are smarter than we are.  Liberties will be lost, if we let it happen.  

A local lesson on how bad government can encroach on the liberties of civilians occurred a few months ago.  In 2008, state legislators passed the Clear Zone Act which prohibits objects of any kind from being within seven feet of the edge of the pavement in subdivisions.  It took three years until after the passage of the bill, and acting as if the bill implied retroactive punishment for Delaware State Police and the Delaware Department of Transportation to use taxpayer funds to remove seven basketball hoops from a Delaware subdivision.  Not even the current state legislator who authored a letter to the former state Secretary of Transportation could save the basketball hoops.  One basketball hoop was in place for over sixty years.
Why is this important?  Because government make bad laws and decided how those bad laws are implemented.  In the case of the basketball hoop, the state police officer threatened one home owner with arrest if they did not stop verbally questioning the state transportation workers tasked with removing the basketball hoop.  The trooper then lied about the homeowner keeping their own personal property, and ordered the offending basketball hoop to be carted away.

The video of this incident became a Internet phenomenon, with wide-spread criticism from Americans throughout the nation.  The seizure of personal property is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, and the state police officer instructing the homeowner to remain quiet despite criminal activity by the State is violation of the First Amendment. 

Until voters realize that progressives are directly responsible for their continue loss of liberty, the government will continue to encroach on them.  Remember, if you give them an inch, they’ll take a mile.  But that is if we let them.  That is unless the voters in 2012 wake up to what is happening locally and nationally and reject progressivism.  Reject the nanny state mentality or we just might lose it all.

Outside Independence Hall when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, Mrs. Powell of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?"  With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded,
"A republic, if you can keep it."

Deception Inc.

So we have now the Four Corners of Deceit, and the two universes in which we live.  The Universe of Lies, the Universe of Reality, and The Four Corners of Deceit: Government, academia, science, and media.  Those institutions are now corrupt and exist by virtue of deceit.  That's how they promulgate themselves; it is how they prosper.”  -- Rush Limbaugh (November 2009)

When Rush Limbaugh uttered those words, spilling the beans on the modus operandi of the entire Democratic and progressive movement, he put conservatives on the offensive.  The progressive movement has made it a business of deceiving Americans for profit and at our expense.  No American taxpayer can hide from the decades of deception and lies that have eroded our moral integrity as a nation, and cost American taxpayers millions, if not trillions of dollars, in unnecessary programs and initiatives.

Rush Limbaugh uttered this statement on the heels of a Fox News Chanel being the only media outlet willing to report on the false evidence used to support the climate change debate.  As we all know the supporters used false evidence and data to support the need to impose a costly Cap and Trade system that has yet to see the light of day in the United States Senate.  When the bill passed, eight Republicans, including Delaware’s own former U.S. Representative Michael Castle voted in favor of a Cap and Trade system.

That same deception via false scientific evidence, and support by the many in the academic community continue to plaque Delaware consumers of energy where Delaware is still a member of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.  The refusal of Delaware legislators to remove Delaware from this costly ponzi scheme are costing Delaware taxpayers millions each year in additional unnecessary costs, and Delaware jobs because of the higher cost to conduct business in the state of Delaware.  Here you have three systems deceiving the public – academia and science on their false evidence, and government leverage the false evidence on the will of the public.  

We cannot talk about deceit of the public, without bring up the corrupt business of American media.  It is no surprise that most conservative Americans are frustrated with the constant deceit of the American media.  Most print and television media outlets refuse to inform the public – their consumers – based on facts.  The refusal to report the facts has discredited their ability to be objective.  Just look at how the local and national portray conservative candidates.  Honestly, what objectivity and factual evidence has the local and national media used to portray Sarah Palin or Christine O’Donnell in the negative light that they do?  

Whether one is a consumer of a newspaper, magazine or a listener of a television or radio show, they must be cognizant of what story is being told.  Not all media is the same. 

The same falls true if one is a consumer (student) of a school, or a publication of that school.  Be mindful of the fact that all public schools and most big universities and colleges are run by progressives who are tasked to advance an agenda.  The progressive movement has not stopped, and will not stop until every student is indoctrinated not by the truth (e.g. history) but in an ideology that conflicts with what the Founding Fathers envisioned for this great nation.  The progressive agenda is anti-American and its pervasiveness in the area of academia should be treated as a threat to the integrity of this nation.  

Governments, large and small aside from media and academia are one of the biggest and most blatant users of deception to advance their legislative agenda.  One only needs to go back to March 2010, when the government used numerous tactics via the media and academia to advance the destructive and regressive health care reform bill.  No matter what government official from the Obama Administration was speaking, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the best thing since sliced bread.  Immediately after its passage, the real truth came out from the Government Accountability Office that the bill fails to rein in health care costs for American patients and will cost American taxpayers more than originally reported.  Clearly this is deception by the American media and government officials at its best.

 More recently, the Obama Administration continues to deceive American taxpayers and Republican legislators on the legitimacy of the third war in Libya.  Progressive view this third war as legitimate and valid under the War Powers Act.  Still to this day, Obama has failed to gain approval of Congress over this illegal use of military use of force and remains defiant in complying with the law.  Obama supporters including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) state that the use of force is legitimate so long as American troops are not on the ground.  Once again our government officials think the American public is stupid, but continues to deceive the American public with false information on the War Powers Act.  It is also important to note, that the leftist media continues to give Obama a free pass. 

Until Americans stop being consumers of the business that propagate this deception it will continue.  Progressive are raking in billions of consumer dollars on lies.  Their profit margins depend on gullible consumers to buy their magazines and newspapers, listen to progressive radio such as National Public Radio, and watch their television news shows.  Higher advertising revenue of radio and television programs and increased revenues attributed to higher readership fund their game of deception.  

Academia and scientific studies are funded via government grants all funded by taxpayer dollars at the federal and state level.  These three systems are interconnected and leverage deception collectively (as noted above) to drive more dollars from the wallets of American taxpayers preventing them spending their hard money on the American economy.
If Deception, Inc were a business it would be listed on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and ranked number one by Fortune as the most profitable American business.  It’s time to wake up our liberal friends and family to this game of deception.  America’s existence is at stake.  The more we are deceived, the more America crumbles.  Rush Limbaugh wants us to fight back and we must.
