Touting the contrast between red states and blue states, Rick Perry kicked off the second day of CPAC by spiritedly urging his audience to help bring back those successful conservative policies that have been absent in Washington for the last several years.

Unanswered Barack braggadocio that is the trademark of his presidency is reaching all time highs.

 

 

 

On Monday, it was revealed that the Obama regime plans on gutting the U.S. military to pre-World War II levels. On Tuesday, it became clear that the National Guard is next on his hit list.

If as has been widely suggested, CPAC 2013 marked a paradigm change, a generational change, a new direction of conservatism, it is possible to speculate that someone who fits the new paradigm could be president in 2016. Among them: Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Sarah Palin, all of whom starred at the Conservative Political Action Conference. For any one of these, the perfect choice for vice president should be David Petraeus.

“The popular media narrative is that this country has shifted away from conservative ideals, as evidenced by the last two presidential elections. That’s what they think. That’s what say. That might be true if Republicans had actually nominated conservative candidates in 2008 and 2012,” Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas) said in his address at CPAC this afternoon.

 

Perry also slammed President Obama for undocumented illegal immigration being released from detention centers due to sequestration cuts. “This president’s posture, it’d be laughable if he hadn’t taken it one step too far, dangerously releasing criminals onto our streets to make a political point,” Perry told the crowd at CPAC.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“When you have a federally-sponsored jailbreak, and don’t get confused, that’s exactly what that is — when you’ve had a federally-sponsored jailbreak, you’ve crossed the line from politics of spin to politics as a craven form of cynicism.”

“Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.

 

“There is evil prowling in the world – it shows up in our movies, video games and online fascinations, and finds its way into vulnerable hearts and minds. As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. Above all, let us pray for our children.

Now, he didn’t call for secession, but he was restating a principle that was long held and at least in the original time of our country, and that is that there was a right to secession.

Actually, after the Civil War, nobody believes there is a so-called right to secession, but it is a very legitimate issue to debate because all of the states that came into the Union before the Civil War believed they have a right to secede and New England in the early part of the 19th century actually considered it, and nobody questioned them about whether they had the right to do it or not.

Rick Perry’s Letter to Obama

Dear Secretary Sebelius:

In the ObamaCare plan, the federal government sought to force the states to expand their Medicaid programs by — in the words of the Supreme Court — putting a gun to their heads. Now that the “gun to the head” has been removed, please relay this message to the President: I oppose both the expansion of Medicaid as provided in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the creation of a so-called “state” insurance exchange, because both represent brazen intrusions into the sovereignty of our state…

If BHO is reelected, Time for Texas to Secede (Vanity)

July 7, 2012 | no dems

Being a native-born Texan, it is my understanding that Texas is the only State in the Union that can legally secede from the Union, because it was once a Republic on it’s own. (The Republic of Texas.)

Now, someone help me out here: Is that a fact? If so, I’m calling on all Texas FReepers to join me in laying the groundwork to make it happen if Barack Obama is reelected. What do we need to do to start a Secession Movement, and where do we begin? If you’re not a Texan, you don’t understand the Texas mind-set. If BHO is reelected, I guarantee you that Texas would vote 60% – 40% FOR Secession.

(Rush) Establishment Discovers Obama Can Lose

May 23, 2012 Leave a comment

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Politico has a story. What did I tell you last fall? The Republican establishment doesn’t even believe Obama can lose, right? Republican establishment during the arguments, during the primaries, should it be Newt, should it be Santorum, should it be Rick Perry, should it be Michele Bachmann, should it be Romney. Of course, the argument often came down on electability, who has the best chance of beating Obama, was one criteria that primary voters and analysts looked to. And I said all along, the dirty little secret is, in the Republican establishment, they don’t think Obama can lose. They don’t think we can beat him. All they want is the Senate.

I know many of you are new to the program and don’t remember me saying it ’cause you weren’t here. But those of you who were here the last few years remember this discussion going on and on and on about how frustrated we all were. Because you and I are sitting here thinking, “This guy’s not only not unbeatable, he’s landslidable beatable!” Here’s another thing. Unfortunately, I can’t avoid it. Wherever I go, I get asked, “Hey, Rush, what’s really going on with the election? What’s really gonna happen?”

Rick Perry Was Correct by Andrew P. Napolitano

April 26, 2012 Leave a comment

When Texas Gov. Rick Perry, then in the early stages of his short-lived quest for the Republican presidential nomination, referred to Social Security as “a Ponzi scheme,” he was excoriated by the press, left and right, and by his fellow Republicans, as well. Earlier this week, government actuaries revealed that Perry was correct.

Governor Rick Perry of Texas speaking at the R...

That revelation, which was greeted with a ho-hum by the media, basically announced that by 2033, 21 years from now, the so-called Social Security trust fund will be empty.

The only reason this was even announced is because we are approaching a presidential election campaign, and in response to Perry’s much-derided claim, the government’s actuaries, who originally told the Obama administration and the public that the fund would be solvent until 2036, re-examined their numbers and concluded that it will be in the red three years earlier than they thought.

Barack Obama has assembled a frightening assortment of appointments, friends, and associates. The following few are merely the tip of the sword Barack Obama wields in his plan to transform America in his own image.

Reverend Jeremiah Wright

The racialist black supremacist of “god damn America” fame presided over the Obama’s marriage as well as baptizing Sasha and Malia. Barack and Michelle perched in a pew, listening while the Right Reverend Wright preached racialism and hatred from the pulpit, for 20 years. He may not deserve the “Right” or the “Reverend,” being decidedly unrighteous and un-entitled to reverence. Yet the president heard nothing from his “spiritual mentor,” the man who actually coined the phrase “audacity of hope,” the title of the president’s hugely successful second autobiography. When you are a truly great man, one just won’t do.

Larry Flynt offers $1M for dirt on lawmakers, government officials

By Vicki Needham – 03/04/12 01:28 PM ET

Larry Flynt is on the trail for any dirt on congressional lawmakers and government officials.

The Hustler magazine publisher placed a full-page ad in Sunday’s Washington Post, offering upward of $1 million for any information about “infidelity, sexual impropriety or corruption concerning a U.S. senator, congressperson or prominent government official.”

The ad says sources with documented evidence would be paid if Flynt publishes the “verified story.” He is asking for submissions by phone or email.

In September, Flynt went after former Republican presidential contender Rick Perry, offering a million-dollar bounty to anyone “who can document an illicit sexual encounter with the Texas governor.

Perry says he was right to accuse Obama of “War on Religion”

reuters ^ | 2/11/2012 | Jim Forsyth

Posted on Saturday, February 11, 2012 12:08:49 PM by tobyhill

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry said on Thursday that the dispute between President Barack Obama and the Catholic church over contraception shows he was right to accuse Obama of a “War on Religion.”

Perry, who quit the presidential campaign last month after a faltering performance, said that he was blasted last September for criticizing Obama as hostile to religion.

Perry ran ads before the Iowa caucuses stressing his Christian religion and saying that he would restore respect for religion if he were elected.

“But last night if you turned on a television or heard talk radio or read a newspaper this morning, that’s all people are talking about, is the President’s war on religion,” Perry said in a telephone interview with San Antonio radio station WOAI after he spoke to a convention of conservatives in Washington.

Ron Paul Can’t Win; Heck, He Doesn’t Even Want To Become President of the U.S. « LewRockwell.com Blog

The latest entry into this sweepstakes is the War Street Journal. They opine that Dr. Paul “He knows he can’t win, but he wants to use his delegates to hold the Republican Party hostage to his views on national security and presidential power.”

How come no one in the mainstream media says that Donald Trump can’t win? That Michelle Bachman can’t win? That Rick Perry can’t win? That Jon Huntsman can’t win? That Herman Cain can’t win? That Mitt Romney can’t win? That Newt Gingrich can’t win? That Rick Santorum can’t win?

Why is it that ONLY Ron Paul can’t win? Lookit, when there are almost a dozen initial candidates, all but one “can’t win.”

Let me assure the War Street Journal: Not only CAN Ron Paul win, not only does he WANT to win, but, stick this in your pipe and smoke it, he WILL win.

Prison Planet.com » Media Cover-up: Ron Paul’s Standing Not Discussed in Iowa Vote Reshuffle

January 19, 2012 Leave a comment

Republican officials in Iowa today said that there was no clear winner in the caucus held there on January 3. Party officials said results from eight of the 1,774 precincts were missing when they conducted the vote certification process, meaning they likely will never know what the final tallies were for the candidates.

Despite the ambiguity, Rick Santorum was quick to declare a “virtual tie” in the race and the establishment media obliged him on the claim while ignoring how the change effected Ron Paul’s standing.

Media Cover up: Ron Paul’s Standing Not Discussed in Iowa Vote Reshuffle

Rick Santorum claims he is in a “virtual tie” with declared winner Mitt Romney.

According to the Iowa Caucus website, the certified results of 1,766 precincts made public Thursday show Santorum with 29,839 votes, followed by Romney with 29,805, Ron Paul in third with 26,036, and Newt Gingrich with 16,163, Rick Perry with 12,557, Michele Bachmann with 6,046 and Jon Huntsman with 739. Party officials said 121,503 votes were certified.

The admission of voting irregularities and uncounted votes in the state adds more weight to the argument that the race was fixed in order to discount Ron Paul and push him to the periphery in a concerted effort to minimize his popularity among voters and upstage the handpicked establishment candidates.

On January 4, we reported on the Republican establishment’s decision to conduct the vote count in secret after vague threats issued by the shadowy Anonymous hacker group and protests planned by Occupy the Iowa Caucus.

“Also abusing suddenly lax ID registration may have created many fake votes for neocons Santorum and Romney,” Brad Funkhouser wrote.

A d v e r t i s e m e n t

In addition to ID problems, the Clinton County Republican Women’s Club reported mysterious “computer glitches” during the vote.

“This is the biggest fraud since Kennedy stole the West Virginia Primary,” Funkhouser said.

If, as Santorum claims, he is virtually tied with Romney in Iowa, that would mean Ron Paul came in second, not third. The establishment media has neglected to report this fact. Instead, it has ignored Paul and continued its campaign to portray Romney and Santorum as the only viable candidates wrestling to gain the nomination.

Moreover, a reshuffling of the vote will change the dynamics on delegates as the front-runners head into the Republican national convention in Tampa, Florida during the week of August 27, 2012.

So this Canadian oil, there’s a possibility we could lose it to China with that decision so I hope Americans will really become unhinged with that decision because it is a really bad decision for our country, for energy independence and sends a horrible message at a time that were headed to $4 and $5 oil or excuse me $4 or $5 gasoline, to have a neighbor who’s willing to sell us crude that is available.

Prison Planet.com » It’s Over – Only Two Republican Candidates On Virginia Ballot

January 18, 2012 5 comments

In the Commonwealth, real change candidate and Champion of the Constitution Ron Paul will face down establishment flip-flopper Mitt Romney

LAKE JACKSON, Texas – 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul, the constitutionally-observant candidate of real change, will face down establishment candidate and notorious flip-flopper Mitt Romney in a head-to-head matchup in the Virginia primary.

The Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied four candidates’ appeals to appear on the ballot after their glaring failure to comply with the Commonwealth’s stringent, but widely-known, ballot access requirements.

Former candidate Jon Huntsman and Rick Santorum did not file signatures with the Virginia State Board of Elections at all. Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich did file signatures, but fell short of qualifying. Rick Perry then brought a suit against the state challenging the ballot-access requirements to which all candidates were held, and others failing to qualify joined the suit. When the suit was struck down, an injunction was filed in part to reconcile whether and when paper ballots would be printed, and today the final decision was handed down.

Virginia is the nation’s 12th-largest state and its primary election takes place on March 6th – Super Tuesday. The absence of any other candidates on the ballot aside from Paul and Romney, including serial hypocrite Gingrich and counterfeit conservative Santorum, is sending ripple effects throughout key early voting states including South Carolina where Palmetto State voters now are concerned about how their vote will affect the nominating process going forward.

Big government conservatives will never truly overhaul Washington because they need the status quo in place to accomplish their objectives. They don’t want to rebuild the machine; they simply want to change the people pulling the levers.

But that is not what the American people want. There is such deep and widespread discontent that nothing short of a complete overhaul will satisfy their justifiable demands.

The American people expect changes equal to their concern, which is the highest it’s been in at least a generation, and I am the only candidate with a vision that is as strong and sweeping as the public is angry.

While others promise to tinker with the status quo, I am the outsider who will overhaul Washington. Others talk about trimming the bureaucracy; I will eliminate the Departments of Commerce, Energy and Education, gut the activist EPA, freeze bureaucrat salaries and make Congress part-time. Others talk about cleaning up the tax code; I say let Americans throw the whole thing out and pay a simple flat tax instead.

In Defense of Libertarians (being libertarian and being Republican are not mutually exclusive)

American Thinker ^ | 01/12/2012 | Rachael Williams

Throughout the primary election season there’s been a group unfairly villainized by the rest of the Republicans. Not the establishment (they can’t be villainized enough for giving us McCain and trying to keep folks like Rand Paul from getting elected in 2010) — I mean libertarians.

Republicans like to villainize libertarians for infiltrating their party — but refuse to acknowledge that being libertarian and being Republican are not mutually exclusive. I wish someone had told me, but apparently all self-identified libertarians are the same caricature of Ron Paul supporters who refuses to debate and instead just shouts “Neo-con! Neo-con!” at everyone with whom he disagrees.

I’m not what you’d call a “Ron Paul libertarian”; I don’t think he’s the end-all, be-all personification of what a libertarian is or what libertarians must believe to fit the title. Love him or hate him — which seem to be the only two options — I’d like to believe that everyone on the right can admit that Ron Paul has brought the mainstream of the far right a little closer to libertarian beliefs. Without Ron Paul, you wouldn’t have candidates like Rick Perry and Rick Santorum pushing for trillions of dollars in spending cuts, nor would they be promising to outright eliminate regulatory agencies.

Why eligibility doesn’t matter to politicians

January 12, 2012 2 comments

Like most other states, the commonwealth of Virginia has election laws designed by the legislature to ensure only qualified candidates get ballot positions.

In the GOP primary election of 2012, only Ron Paul and Mitt Romney qualified by following the procedures, which include getting enough petitions signed in every county of the state.

In short order, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, a resident of the state, and even states-rights champion Rick Perry were filing U.S. lawsuits challenging Virginia’s power to run elections the way its lawmakers wanted to run them.

Meanwhile, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, normally a constitutionally minded lawyer, announced he would file emergency legislation that would allow any presidential candidate receiving federal matching funds or qualified to receive them to get on the ballot.

In other words, the rules for the election are changing in the middle of the game. The state created legislation that was noted by two candidates who took the trouble to comply – presumably at some expense and effort. The others did not.

Now, using federal lawsuits and last-minute changes in legislation, those who didn’t take the trouble to comply with eligibility standards are being provided with an exception.

I have a problem with that.

It’s not because I favor Ron Paul or Mitt Romney. In fact, neither of them would be my choice for the Republican nomination – and I, too, am a Virginia resident and registered voter. I would like the opportunity to vote for someone who more closely represents my views.

I just happen to believe eligibility standards are important – and should be observed, enforced and amended only through normal political processes, not federal court rulings. Neither should election rules be changed in the middle of a campaign…..

Perry Asks And Answers The 3 Big Questions

January 8, 2012 Leave a comment

In this morning’s GOP presidential debate, NBC moderator David Gregory asked Texas Governor Rick Perry a question about electability.

Governor Perry took it a step further and laid out the three big questions primary voters should be asking themselves: “Who is it that can beat Obama? Who is it that can invigorate the tea party? Who is it that can take the message of smaller outsider government that’s truly going to change that place?”

While the mainstream media and party establishment have been obsessed with that first question for months, the other two have been virtually ignored in their zeal to push Republicans to settle once again for a non-conservative nominee. With the actual voting underway, it’s more than time to ask (and answer) those other two questions.

When it comes to invigorating the grassroots activists who were instrumental in the shellacking President Obama and his Congressional cronies took in the 2010 midterm elections, Governor Perry demonstrated once again that he is the candidate that can inspire the tea party.

If Rick Perry was a legitimate conservative (which I always warned he was not) he would have dropped out of the campaign today and endorsed Rick Santorum, Ron Paul or Newt Gingrich. Yet “Pay-for-Play” Perry stays in, and heads for South Carolina. So what’s the deal?

The big winner of Perry staying in, by far, is Mitt Romney. The big loser is the conservative movement and the candidates who appeal to that movement. Keeping in mind my long-held view that Perry is not conservative, just a “pay-for-play” guy, what is in it for Perry?

1. Perhaps Romney offered Perry a position in his administration, such as undersecretary of Agriculture.

2. Perhaps Romney offered Perry a diplomatic post suited to his talents, such as United States Ambassador to Bolivia.

3. Perhaps Perry spent more of his money than we realize, and Romney offered to go to his 1 percent wealthy fundraisers and raise for Perry a little more dough to sweeten the pie.

Today’s Presidential campaign sounds more like a horse race.

http://oi43.tinypic.com/21d4p52.jpg

“The horses are entering the starting gate. Jockeys to watch are top-tier picks Romney, Gingrich and Perry, sporting 6-to-1, 5-to-1 and 4-to-1 odds respectively. But there’s a slight delay. Perry’s horse, a Texas stallion, is kicking and the stewards are having a difficult time getting him into the gate.

RelatedCRESTON, Iowa — Rick Perry began his final push in the Iowa Republican caucuses Tuesday by sharpening his claim to be the sort of leader the country badly needs, and which his rivals decidedly are not.

“You need to ask yourself: If we replace the Democrat insider with a Republican insider, is that going to change Washington, D.C.? No, it’s not,” he told 150 or so Iowans crammed into a coffee shop a week ahead of caucuses likely to winnow the presidential field. “I will go to Washington to be an anti-establishment outsider.”

Canadians appear pretty smug these days as they watch and comment on the U.S. presidential race.

In some ways I can’t blame them. There have also been a series of candidates on the Republican side who have risen high only to self-implode.

First Michelle Bachman, followed by Rick Perry and then Herman Cain.

That leaves Newt Gingrich as the only challenger to Mitt Romney.

I still have a hard time believing this is happening. Newt Gingrich was last a viable political figure when Kenneth Starr and the investigation into the Monica Lewinsky scandal were leading the nightly news.

Urbandale, Iowa (CNN) – Texas Gov. Rick Perry accused Barack Obama of caring more about politics than American troops on Wednesday, blasting the president for not planning a major parade to welcome home soldiers from the war in Iraq.

The last combat troops left the country last week, after nearly nine years of fighting.

“This president wouldn’t welcome home our many heroes with a simple parade in their honor,” the Republican presidential candidate told a packed house at The Machine Shed restaurant in Urbandale.

Besides Paul’s top position, Perry is now third or fourth in most of the polling. Pundits say Iowa is irrelevant if Paul wins, as he is a one-trick pony. Could a win in Iowa ignite the Paul ground teams in other states? Paul is a force to be reckoned with because of his staunch supporters. Maybe candidates should be reaching towards Paul instead of running away from him.

Perry, on the other hand, could be the dark horse in this race. If not nationally, at least he appears to be set to come from behind in Iowa. Why are people giving Perry a second look? His supporters do not mind that he is not the best debater.

A Time For Choosing: Rick Perry for President

Mike Flynn

Yes, I’ve seen the debates. And, yes, I’ve watched the “oops” moment probably a dozen times. While he has steadily improved, Rick Perry is not a skilled debater. Seeing him debate is like watching a high-wire act, where each moment is tense with the fear that the performer could slip and fall. I get it. But, when did debate performance become our sole criteria for picking a President? When did the RNC decide to team up with the legacy media and turn the nomination contest into an almost unwatchable reality TV spectacle? Is this really a sane way to pick a nominee?

At this stage, that seems unlikely. But Politico is reporting that internal polls from both Mr. Perry and Mitt Romney find significant slippage in Newt Gingrich‘s Iowa standing. And Perry is one of the beneficiaries. “I believe [Ron] Paul can trip up Newt here, and that’s great news for Romney because Newt is done if that happens,” one Iowa caucus-watcher told Politico. “Watch Rick Perry. He’s going for a top-three finish, and that could be to Romney’s expense.” How well do you know Rick Perry? Take our quiz Perry’s strategy amounts to betting everything on Iowa, where he’s making a major push, despite being stuck in the low double digits in the polls.
