Posted by Thunder Pig on July 25, 2008

But then you already knew they were hostile to Republicans, and covered for miscreant Democrats, didn’t you?

Henderson County GOP No Longer Co-ordinating With Mumpower

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 22, 2008

The Hendersonville Times-News is reporting that the Henderson County GOP is distancing themselves from congressional candidate Carl Mumpower:

Danos provided no other details for the decision, though he had said that party officials were increasingly frustrated in recent weeks with Mumpower’s positions, including his support for impeaching President Bush over border security, his opposition to the domestic surveillance bill and his threat to suspend his campaign if mountain counties did not endorse his “Principles First” campaign.

Commentary


For the most part, I believe Mumpower is hitting the nail on the head.

What I think is hard on regional Republicans is that Mumpower is an involved candidate. Congressman Taylor was not involved in his campaigns, and was a very hard person to get in contact with (I never was able to speak to him in person during the 2006 Campaign, and spoke to Heath Shuler several times, even though I am a Republican).

Republicans in the NC-11 District have forgotten what it is like to have a candidate that is not controlled by handlers and gate keepers.

Former State Senator Has Questions Regarding Ethics Bill

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 11, 2008

A letter regarding the North Carolina General Assembly’s ability to police itself in ethics investigations has been posted on WNC Citizens Blog.

The letter writer brings up some good points, especially about past unethical behavior, and I provided the links in the letter to provide evidence of the letter writer’s varacity.

The key system has been used by the Democratic Party for over thirty years, and it is still in place.

NC General Assembly Moves To Block State Auditor

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 8, 2008

The NC General Assembly, tired of having a Republican who might expose the unethical activities of legislators, is pushing forward legislation that will limit the state auditor’s investigative authority. I blogged about it on WNC Citizens Blog.

Obama Birth Certificate Shenanigans?

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 1, 2008

The Birth Certificate supplied by Barack Obama is not a Certified Copy. More on this:

“That strongly suggests that Daily Kos obtained the image from Photobucket, not the State of Hawaii, the Obama family, or the Obama campaign. Photobucket is not generally known as a credible supplier of official vital records for any of the fifty states, and the liberties that other Photoshoppers took with the certificates confirms this.

“Some of these oddities surfaced in Israel Insider’s previous article on the subject, but new comparative documentary evidence presented below, and official verification obtained by Israel Insider from a senior Hawaiian official, provides the strongest confirmation yet.

“An authentic Hawaiian birth certificate for another Hawaiian individual has since surfaced which, using the same official form as the presumptive Obama certificate, includes an embossed official seal and an authoritative signature, coming through from the back. Obama’s alleged certificate lacks those features, and the certificate number referencing the birth year has been blacked out, making it untraceable.

”Janice Okubo, Director of Communications of the State of Hawaii Department of Health, told Israel Insider: “At this time there are no circumstances in which the State of Hawaii Department of Health would issue a birth certification or certification of live birth only electronically.” And, she added, “In the State of Hawaii all certified copies of certificates of live birth have the embossed seal and registrar signature on the back of the document.”

–==SNIP==–

Research has since uncovered the law, in force at the time of Obama’s birth, that were he to have been born in another country, his young American mother’s youth extended time abroad would not suffice to make him a “natural born citizen.” Even if he were naturalized later — and there is no evidence that he was — he would not be eligible to run for the office of president and — if forgery or misrepresentation were involved — he and his staffers might find themselves facing stiff federal and state charges.

Commentary

This could just be a case of extreme incompetence on the part of Obama’s staff. There could also be other reasons for the cover up. Obama’s out of wedlock birth could have resulted in the father’s name being left out due to uncertainty who the father was, or he could have been listed as an Arab or Muslim, or may not be listed as Barack Obama, Sr.

If Obama was born outside the USA, according to laws in effect at the time of his birth, he would not be a natural born citizen andhe would be ineligible to be President due to his mother’s extended time abroad prior to his birth.

My chief suspicion is that it may be either extreme incompetence on Obama’s staff or to cover up embarrasing information on the Birth Certificate. Just like in Nixon’s case, the cover up becomes a greater crime than any actual crimes committed.

This would also be quite revealing about the character of Barack Obama.

I also note that Hillary Clinton is technically still in the race…for those of us who were involved in situations in Arkansas in the 1980’s…we remember that the Clintons have returned from the dead before… (cue spooky music)

Crunching The Numbers On 527’s: Exposing Barack Obama’s Lie

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 30, 2008

To hear Barack Obama speak you’d think he is gonna be overwhelmed by a folld of Republican 527’s this fall. Methinks the guilty dog is barking first:

Before the conventions in 2004, 527’s had raised $189.1 million, with Conservative groups raising $43.8 million and Liberal groups raising $132.6 million. The Liberals out raised Conservatives 3 to 1.

Now, the 527’s have raised $207.8 million, with Conservative groups raising $68.4 million and Liberal groups raising $116.4 million. The Liberals out raised Conservatives 1.7 to 1.

I can see why Obama would be worried. If the Democrat 527’s can’t get a Democrat into the White House when they have a 3 to 1 advantage in money…they might have a problem doing it at 1.7 to 1…unless they really over work those ACORN people and increase their fraudulent voter registrations to unheard of levels.

Source for figures: Center for Responsive Politics.

So, when you hear Barack Obama, or any Democrat, speak of the Republican attack machine…you will be armed with figures that will show them that they have been told a lie, and are repeating it.

NC Democrat Video Tying McCrory To President Bush

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 19, 2008

This is a move that is likely to win conservatives over to McCrory


I kid you not! Just watch it:

For those of us who have been concerned about GOP Candidate for Governor Pat McCrory being RINO, the North Carolina Democrat Party has decided to help us see McCrory in a more favorable light. This is one of those rare commercials that work just as effectively (perhaps more) in getting people to vote for the candidate the makers don’t want you to vote for!!!

Ron Paul Wakes Up, Quits Bid For President

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 13, 2008

After wringing the last possible dime from his supporters, Ron Paul has joined the Huckster, Romney, and other Republicans and formed a PAC of his own, after quitting the race for President.

The mission of his new PAC:

The mission of the Campaign for Liberty is to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity.

Ron Paul is sadly lacking in his understanding of the importance for us to engage the enemy from a forward posture instead of hiding in our homeland, and giving him the rest of the world. If Ron Paul had been President during World War II, Europe’s fate would have been decided between the Soviets and the Nazis, and hundreds of millions more people would have died, and billions condemned to live under slavery before we joined them.

I will be very interested in seeing how many of his local supporters go through with their plans to leave the GOP, and join the hopeless campaign of Bob Barr, or help the insignificant Libertarian Party of North Carolina by enrolling as members, and running for local and state offices, or campaigning for Libertarian candidates…the only way any party is successful.

So, my question is, will they work, or will they whine?

Mitch McConnell Forces Reading of 500 Page Bill

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 4, 2008

It is about time the GOP started playing hard ball with Harry “Surrender in Iraq” Reid!!!

Senate Republicans, angry over the pace of confirming President Bush’s judicial nominees, tied up the floor Wednesday to force Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to schedule more confirmation votes.

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) objected on the Senate floor to Reid’s efforts to speed debate on climate change by forcing the clerk to read a 500-page substitute amendment. The move comes after weeks of Republican threats to employ parliamentary tactics to force Democrats to confirm at least 16 appellate court nominees by the end of this Congress.

Republicans accuse Reid of breaking a promise to confirm three appeals court judges before Memorial Day. But Reid insists he never made a guarantee, saying he tried to confirm three judges but Republicans effectively stalled one nominee they opposed by burdening her with too many written questions. Democrats say Congress has confirmed a vast majority of Bush’s nominees, and argue that the White House has intentionally floated polarizing nominees to energize the conservative base.

I wonder how long it will take to read 500 pages?
