Rand Paul vs. Rick Perry: Who’s winning?
The Christian Science Monitor ^ | July 14, 2014 | Peter GrierPosted on 7/14/2014, 1:37:39 PM by ConservingFreedomThis Rand Paul versus Rick Perry GOP thunderstorm popped up pretty fast, didn’t it?
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.

Rick Perry Admirably Refuses To Shake Obama’s Hand At Airport
Daily Caller ^Posted on 7/9/2014, 11:00:02 AM by TigerClawsDon’t call him Chris Christie.Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry refused to greet President Barack Obama at a tarmac photo-op this week, and instead challenged Obama to hold a “substantive meeting” with him to discuss the illegal immigration crisis currently engulfing states along the U.S.-Mexico border.
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.
But Perry wasn’t having it.Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/08/rick-perry-admirably-refuses-to-shake-obamas-hand-at-airport/#ixzz36z37Z2UM

Rick Perry Getting Ready for a 2016 Presidential Campaign

“I’m glad I ran in 2012, as frustrating, as painful and as humbling as that experience was,” Perry told a group of national reporters at a Thursday lunch hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.“Preparation is the single most important lesson that I learned out of that process,” he said. “Over the last 18 months, I’ve focused on being substantially better prepared.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said that the federal government has taken up every bit of spare available space in his
state to house the tens of thousands of illegal children flooding over the U.S. border, leaving him with no rooms for Texans who might be left homeless in a natural disaster like a hurricane.Federal authorities are housing the youths in hotels and even military bases while they search for relatives to turn them over to.
After Hurricane Katrina, he said, many homeless Texans needed housing, but now there isn’t anything left as the next hurricane season begins.
Perry, considering another run for the presidency, said that he told the White House two years ago about the problem with young illegals crossing over the border but was ignored.But now that it is a crisis, he said, they are playing catch-up. “They don’t address something unless it becomes an absolute catastrophe,” said Perry.

“Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that,” he said. “I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.”Gay-rights groups reacted per usual. “Although he may not have the ‘genetic coding’ to think before he speaks, Rick Perry, M.D. should have a real conversation with actual doctors before voicing his expertise on these issues,” said Fred Sainz of the Human Rights Campaign.But here’s a thought:
Washington Post ^ | June 9, 3:52 AM | Karen TumultyPosted on 6/9/2014, 10:09:30 AM by SoConPubbieFORT WORTH — The last time Ted Cruz showed up at a Texas Republican Party convention, it was as the scrappy insurgent who had come from nowhere to force the establishment’s anointed one into a run-off for a U.S. Senate seat.
More than 8,000 Republicans gathered here again Thursday for their three-day biennial meeting. And just two years after he first appeared on their stage, the junior senator from Texas bestrode the world inside the Fort Worth Convention Center as a colossus.
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.

Please allow me to express a high degree of naiveté in order to set the contextual background for this article. We live in a country which is bound by the rule of law. Our Constitution is immutable.
Unlike our European allies who grant civil liberties so long as it is in the common, or the “greater good” (i.e. Communitarian law), our Constitution protects its civil liberties above all else. With this being said, can someone please explain to me why the following law, that allows dangerous government experimentation on unsuspecting individuals is allowed to a part of the American legal landscape?

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.”

“The Vice President‘s committee was appointed in response to the tragedy at Newtown, but very few of his recommendations have anything to do with what happened there.
“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.
I am pumped! Governor Perry just told Cavuto that Texas will NOT be setting up a health care exchange under Obamacare. He also raised the 10th amendment as the basis for the sovereignty of Texas as a state.
Ron Paul: Secession Is an American Principle
By RonPaul.com on November 13, 2012
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.
(Gov Rick) Perry: Obama Engaging in ‘Spiritual Warfare’ (“It falls on us [as] Christian warriors, Christian soldiers, and it’s for us as Americans, to stand our ground.”)
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…

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.

Gov. Perry Responds to Health Care Decision
Posted on Thursday, June 28, 2012 2:02:02 PM by wk4bush2004
Perry said, “This ruling will be a stomach punch to the American economy. It is a shocking disappointment to freedom-loving Americans desperate to get our country back on track. Obamacare is bad for the economy, bad for health care, bad for freedom. Americans have made clear their overwhelming opposition to its convoluted, burdensome and overreaching mandates.”
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?”

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.
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.
(AND SCROLL DOWN TO READER RESPONSES TOO!) 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”

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.
“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.

I’m officially endorsing Newt Gingrich for president today. Was going to wait until after Florida, but see no reason to delay. We need Newt to win in South Carolina and Florida to stop any possible momentum building up for the establishment big government, statist, abortionist RINO!!
Romney and “the flag” Etc…..
Romney and “the flag”
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.
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.
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.
