Herman Cain, You Are Not A Racist, But A Patriot

by lewwaters

Not issuing an endorsement of Herman Cain just yet, but the man definitely deserves a serious look.

“You are not a racist for disagreeing with the President who Happens to be Black, you are a Patriot for standing up for what you believe in.”

The more I hear from Herman Cain, the more I like what I see and hear. The question now is, will the establishment GOP undermine him while they promote their favored RINO to win the nomination, as they did with the 3rd Congressional District race in 2010 and others in 2008 to give us one of the least liked candidates?

Washington Post Admits Left Winged Media Bias

by lewwaters

cowardly-lionDeborah Howell, of the Washington Post, penned a stunning admission in today’s paper titled, An Obama Tilt in Campaign Coverage.

In her article she outlines the lopsided coverage in favor of Liberal Democrat, Barack Hussein Obama over Moderate Republican, John Sydney McCain. We bloggers on the right have known this all along, but when mentioned, we were just poo pooed by the left and members of the media as hate mongers, out of touch or what have you.

In showing the lack of true Journalistic coverage, Howell states, “The Post was deficient in stories that reported more than the two candidates trading jabs,” admitting that issues of both candidates were lacking.

The assistant managing editor for politics, Bill Hamilton, is quoted as saying,

I don’t at all discount the importance of issues, but we had a larger purpose, to convey and explain a campaign that our own David Broder described as the most exciting he has ever covered, a narrative that unfolded until the very end. I think our staff rose to the occasion.”

Isn’t it the “issues” that we voters must know in order to make informed decisions on who to vote for to best lead the nation? And, what is the “larger purpose” he mentions? Prove we are not racists by electing a totally inexperienced person to the highest office in the world just because he is a minority?

With all the calls from European nations during the campaign that America ‘must’ do so, when does Europe prove their end to racism by installing a Black leader in any one of their countries? After all, the slavery that once existed in America was brought from those same European nations that have never in their history had a Black leader.

The most stunning admission by Ms. Howell, though, is,

But Obama deserved tougher scrutiny than he got, especially of his undergraduate years, his start in Chicago and his relationship with Antoin “Tony” Rezko, who was convicted this year of influence-peddling in Chicago. The Post did nothing on Obama’s acknowledged drug use as a teenager.”

Neither did the rest of the lamestream media, Ms. Howell.

As I wrote in Lamestream Media Royally Screws America, “We learned more about Sarah Palin’s choice of eyeliner over the first weekend she was selected than we still know about B HO.”

Neither Ms. Howell nor any one else from the media has issued anything remotely resembling an apology for their gross negligence in performing their duty as Journalists to adequately inform the public. Such gross negligence on the job would get most of us fired from our jobs, yet they will just continue masquerading Op Eds as Journalism and selecting what the public reads and is entitled to know.

I am left pondering now if our own financially troubled Columbian will rub our noses into the mud also and admit they were in the tank for local Democrat candidates and ignored obvious deficiencies in their abilities?

Missing in their “coverage” was many gaffes and admissions of local candidates from the Democrat side and ignoring strengths of some Republican candidates.

Nowhere was this more prevalent than in the race to replace retiring Bill Fromhold between Jim Jacks and Debbie Peterson. After Jacks openly admitted to not having a clue of what to do in regards to our states financial troubles and Debbie outlined ideas to solve it, attempts by this writer to inform Clark County voters in the 49th Legislative District were continually blocked by editing portions of comments and letters that stated that.

While the media did not totally get their way in a Democrat clean sweep, they helped elect enough to have a major impact upon our future, which just may bankrupt us all with increased fees, higher taxes and more restrictions on our constitutional liberties.

It is little wonder that so many media sources are experiencing declining profits and having to lay people off. Ever so gradually, readers are turning away from the propaganda laced media and relying on alternative news sources or just ignoring news altogether.

That presents even more dangers for American voters.

Never before has the comment credited to Mark Twain, “If you don’t read the newspaper you are uninformed. If you do read the newspaper you are misinformed,” been so true.

An Urgent Video Message From Clark County GOP Chairman

by lewwaters

Dear Republicans:

This is it! Just one day until Election Day and we are now in the fight to the finish.

I would, first of all, like to remind you to turn in your ballot. Remember to vote the whole ballot, and support our local candidates. Did you know that in 2004 Clark County had one of the State’s highest drop-offs in votes between the Presidential Race and the Gubernatorial Race? Thousands more who were eligible to vote, simply didn’t. Clark County could have made the difference in electing Dino Rossi as Governor four years ago.

Don’t let this happen again. Let’s do everything we can in the final 24 to 36 hours to get Dino Rossi Elected. Let’s do everything we can to get our local candidates elected. We have an opportunity to elect a GOP majority to the Board of County Commissioners. Our candidates for Senate and the State Legislature need your help. Every Republican on the ballot is counting on you!

The Polls are narrowing in the final days of the Presidential Race. On Sunday, November 2, the IBD/TIPP poll had McCain and Obama in a statistical tie. The IBD/TIPP Poll won the title of “Nation’s Most Accurate Pollster,” for the 2004 Presidential Election.

We need your help in closing hours. Our Victory Office will be open, making get out the vote calls, until 7:00 PM on Election Night. Please volunteer today. Call 425-971-9291, or stop by the Victory office at 3925 NE 72nd Ave, Ste 104, to help us with our critical Get-Out-The-Vote effort on Monday and Tuesday.

Our candidates are counting on you. Please help us in our FIGHT TO THE FINISH!

Ryan Hart

Chairman, Clark County Republican Party

Food Stamp Frenzy? The “Other” America?

by lewwaters

A CBS report on hardships faced by citizens struggling to feed their families in an American community.

 

 

It may seem cold-hearted, but to me these people in the video are well dressed, one wearing an Armani top, adorned in nice jewelry and if you note at the end, loading their groceries in a very nice, and expensive, SUV.

 

I cannot fault people for wanting to look and dress nice, but what about priorities? Of course, the clothes could have always been purchased second hand or at a clearance and overstock store, costing much less. The SUV is a bit harder to understand for struggling people, though.

 

Still, none of this is a condemnation of these people shown. The salaries mentioned seem awfully low for their professions. They require commitment and education and surely deserve better salaries than mentioned. Since this was from a major metropolitan city in America, I have to wonder why the salaries of these people are so low.

 

Something just didn’t add up for this report, until it dawned on me. This report is about Chicago, Illinois, home of Democrat presidential candidate and former State Senator for this city, Barack Obama.

 

Is this what he accomplished for the people he served before as a State Senator? Is this the result for the people he now serves as a U.S. Senator?

 

More importantly, is this how he intends to serve the American People as President?

 

CBS, unwittingly I’m sure, has shown us how Barack Obama has represented the people in his district containing Chicago.

 

Are we ready for him to turn all of America into a struggling community as this?

 

I’m not! I’m voting for McCain/Palin where a look back at the people they represent shows much prosperity and less struggling to get by.

Palin Phobia In Clark County?

by lewwaters

Like many of you, I was pleasantly surprised to see Republican nominee, John McCain, choose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for his running mate in the upcoming Presidential election this year. Equally pleasing was to discover she has family ties to our community.

Most surprising was to witness that after years of hearing how hard the Democrat Party was working to elevate women in America, they pushed aside a powerful and well known female candidate in favor of a junior Senator from Illinois who is only mid-way through his first term in the U.S. Senate and it was the Republicans, who we continue to hear are against Women, Blacks, Children, Veterans, Mothers, Dogs, Cats, Snails, Birds, the Environment, Taxes, Free Expression, the Poor, Small Business, Health Care, Social Security, Immigrants, Snakes, Music, Flowers, Spiders, basically everything excluding Wealthy White Males, that stood up and nominated the second ever woman Vice Presidential candidate and first ever on the Republican ticket.

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin

Within mere minutes of the announcement, realizing they had been blind-sided by the nomination, left-winged smear merchants began digging into every aspect of her and her family’s lives.

By Sunday, August 31, the Columbian’s John Laird, first telling us how we men feel “tasered” by the mere mention of a powerful woman’s name, primarily Hillary Clinton, seemed somewhat perplexed and “baffled” that Sarah Palin had eclipsed Hillary in the limelight and the possibility of being the “next woman in the White House.”

He also graciously says that “legions of men” no longer feel “tasered.”

Could it be that “legions” of men have wanted a woman all along, but one that supported America and not a leftist restructuring of the country? From our Moms to Margaret Thatcher, powerful women have always been accepted by “legions of men” without feeling “tasered.”

Judging by the paranoid rumors broadcast and printed about Sarah Palin in just this week, it is liberal men & women feeling that “tasered” effect. Could that be the real “tingling sensation” Chris Matthews spoke of once?

Local citizen and retired Navy Commander, Larry Patella, a good conservative who is unafraid to speak his mind, recently penned an email complaining about the biased coverage our local paper gave the conventions. Sending it out to those on his email list, one recipient, 49th Legislative District Representative, Jim Moeller, seemed to take exception. He replied to Larry,

Palin is THE political light-weight. You mean to tell me she is the most qualified candidate in the entire national Republican Party to be McCain’s running mate? Pleeese! Royce Pollard is more qualified than Palin. She will diminish your ticket and quite frankly, I couldn’t have picked a better running mate for him myself.”

Moeller, who has a history of brash replies to constituents and those who disagree with him, must believe the liberal distortions about Sarah Palin. Otherwise, he would have seen that Mrs. Palin enjoys an 85% approval rating in her home state of Alaska.

Never one to quietly back down from arrogant politicians, Larry excoriates Moeller with a reply, in part,

Shame on you. You who has spent a political career fighting to give gays the same rights as other would stoop so low as to join the rest of the Liberal Socialist Democrats and the news media to Insult Sara Palin because she is a woman. How dare you imply she is unqualified because she is a woman who comes from a small town or compare her to Royce Pollard?”

Left unmentioned by Representative Moeller is that Royce Pollard isn’t running for high National Office, but Barack Obama and Joe Biden are and neither has a single days experience in running either a small town or a state. In fact, Sarah Palin even has more Executive experience than her running mate, Senator John McCain.

Left-winged Moveon.org, apparently shook up over this surprise announcement, sent out emails to subscribers “suggesting” letters to editors be written and sent in to newspapers all across the nation. They even supply “writing tips” outlining the debunked rumors and distortions being spread by the paranoid left in their effort to undo what appears to be a winning ticket.

Some have appeared in our local paper letting us “ignorant” Republicans know that adding Mrs. Palin to the ticket “turned the Republican campaign into a ‘Seinfeld’ rerun.” That I recall, Seinfeld enjoyed a long and popular run on TV and is still in demand in syndication.

Another letter tells us that 67 days isn’t enough time to learn of Sarah Palin and know whether or not she is qualified to be Vice President. No mention that the Democrats Presidential nominee is only mid way through his first term as a junior Senator, most of it being spent campaigning for the Presidency. Somehow, though, with no records being released from his home state, he is “immanently qualified” to assume the highest office in the land. But Sarah Palin’s years as Mayor and Governor isn’t enough to be in the Second Highest Office.

In a September 5 Columbian article, editor Lou Brancccio, attempting to show the Columbian as an “unbiased” news source, ends his piece with,

Rather than directly answer tough questions from the media (so far at least) she would simply prefer to say she’s not running to please the media, she’s running (dramatic pause required here) TO REPRESENT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! Oh. OK. I didn’t realize that,” concerning Mrs. Palin.

And again, no complaint that fellow “journalists” won’t even ask Senator Obama any “tough questions” at all

A competitor, the New York Times, published an editorial saying in part,

Where is it written that only senators are qualified to become President …? Where is it written that governors and mayors … are too local, too provincial …? What a splendid system, we say to ourselves, that takes little-known men, tests them in high office and permits them to grow into statesmen. This rationale may even be right, but then let it also be fair. Why shouldn’t a little-known woman have the same opportunity to grow?”

No, this wasn’t written in defense of Sarah Palin, but was published on July 3, 1984 in defense of New York Representative Geraldine Ferraro when Democrat candidate, Walter Mondale, nominated her for the office of Vice President.

Today, they join the chorus questioning Sarah Palin’s qualifications.

Todd Palin’s uncle, Doug Palin says, “She’s young and fresh and kind of a new face.” Many of us in Clark County couldn’t agree more. In spite of the ‘Palin-Phobia’ in the media and Democrat Party, once the partisan rhetoric is cut through, we find an honest and sincere mother of 5 who has the desire to really leave a better country for her children.

There is a very good chance that America is witnessing their first ever woman President.
