It was a dark cloud on the horizon on Friday, when Governor Perry of Texas published an op-ed in The Washington Post that attacked Senator Paul as a foreign policy isolationist.

Paul is reluctant to devote more US troops and weapons to Iraq, and Perry used that position to portray the Kentucky lawmaker as the reverse of Ronald Reagan, as someone who wants to hunker down at home rather than lead the world.“Paul is drawing his own red line along the water’s edge, creating a giant moat where superpowers can retire from the world,” Perry wrote, mockingly.

Perry Polka:  It’s not shaking Obama’s hand but forcing it that counts

July 10, 2014 1 comment

By Judi McLeod July 9, 2014 | Comments| Print friendly | Subscribe28With legions worldwide still trying to find the real Barack Hussein Obama, Texas Governor Rick Perry yesterday unwittingly proved who BHO really is. Obama is Valerie Jarrett and Valerie Jarrett is Obama, one and the same.It’s a provable clue in a six-year-old unsolved mystery proven by evidence that came when Perry wrote asking for a meeting for a ‘substantive’ discussion about illegal immigration rather than just a “quick handshake” with Obama on the tarmac at Austin-Bergstrom Airport.

The White House requested that Perry meet Obama on the tarmac Wednesday as he gets off Air Force One on his way to Democratic fundraisers in Texas, which could have created another tableau like the “Chris Christie hug” during Superstorm Sandy, which helped Obama in the 2012 election.

The story line of this primary season nationally has largely been one in which the Republican establishment has regrouped and managed to brush back the tea party.Then there’s Texas.This year’s Republican primaries proved beyond doubt that in the Lone Star State, the tea party is now the mainstream of Republicanism. Indeed, the entire Texas GOP appears to have been made over in Cruz’s image.Come January, barring a massive shift in the state’s political winds, candidates who ran by his playbook will hold just about every statewide office.

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.

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.

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

Posted on Saturday, July 07, 2012 1:55:47 PM by 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.

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.

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.

Israeli Spying and 9/11: Carl Cameron’s Spiked FOX News Story

Part 1 – Original FOX News Webpage – VideoNote in the first segment of the article that a highly placed US investigator states, “evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.”

This statement suggests that such evidence must exist, since there would be no need for classification if nothing had been found.

Barack’s People – A man is known best by the company he keeps

am thinker ^ | 3/21/12 | w. gensert

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

January 21, 2012 Leave a comment

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

Posted on Thursday, January 12, 2012 7:55:31 AM by SeekAndFind

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.
