Military Vote~ Could Make a Difference

Date posted: September 28, 2012

“More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before. Thirty have died in August. The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-mast for the Sikhs that were killed. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president. It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war.

Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform. But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president. Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond. The million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.”

Weather you are Military or not Here is what you can do to make a difference~ 

Join Women across America and take a STAND 

I Pledge to STAND On the WALL with Women Across America~ 

 

Click Photo to Stand with Women all across America!

 

WomenOnTheWall.Org Pledge is motivated by a single issue: National Security threats that face our nation both foreign and domestic. The Obama Administration has gone out of its way to create a security environment that threatens America and Israel for future generations to come. Based on polling provided by Secure America Now in battleground states women consider national security a “High Priority” yet the Romney and RNC narrative on national security is still lacking, if they cannot we must in order to get Romney elected.

Women On The Wall will fill that vacuum with a powerful, call to action for Women across America to come together to form a wall of security around our Nation to protect our children and grandchildren. “Women On The Wall” is where women all across America will unite and pledge to educate ourselves and others on the serious national security threats our nation faces. We pledge to educate fellow Americans to insure that we will not fall prey to elected leaders and Administrations that do not have America’s best interest at heart.

 
We will ask women to Join with Us and take their place on the Wall and help secure and save America for generations to come. We ask men join us by lifting us up onto the wall. Together we can make a difference!  
 
 
1. Do You Pledge to take time to educate yourself on the serious national security threats our nation faces so that we can protect our country for future generations?
 
2. Do You Pledge to share information you find about National Security threats America faces with your friends and neighbors?
 
3. Do You Pledge to ask other women of all faiths, colors and political backgrounds across America to join us on the wall? 
 
 
Why is the Narrative so Important? This is the one issue that can bring women of all faiths, colors and political backgrounds together to fight for America. This is not a Republican issue or a Democratic issue it is an American issue. Obama is fundamentally changing the safety and security of America and our allies to an extent we may not recover from unless he is removed from office. In order to accomplish that the American people must be educated on the issue of National Security and the threats we face.WOMEN must STAND together now and demand a safe and secure nation for our families to live and thrive in.

Is Tx. State Rep. Phil King a Friend or Foe of his Constituents? Updated with Response from Rep. Phil King~

Date posted:

As of now State Rep. Phil King (R) Weatherford is looking more and more like an establishment insider who is being given the good old boy treatment by Joe Straus. 

 

Updated with Response from Phil King on the below Post. Thank you Rep. King for your response and clarification. 

” This is my military weekend so I just have a minute.  Bottom line, is the TRRCC PAC that was set up to support all House Republican Caucus members. The Haley article mischaracterized it. Haley has never spoken to me.  Nor have I ever talked to anyone with the Speakers office about the TRRCC PAC. The PAC was formed to raise money for incumbent R House members who are challenged in a General election.  If there are sufficient funds it can help in open seat races, as well. It does not fund candidates in Primary races, only General elections.  The board of the PAC – R House members – vote on the fund distribution.  No one in the Speakers office determines distributions.  The PAC board decides.

There is nothing nefarious about this.  I am truly, truly baffled by all the controversy.  Two years ago I did this same thing under the GOPAC-TX banner. I was chair of that PAC.  Other House members were on that board.  In fact, we almost merged GOPAC-TX with the TRRCC PAC in 2010 because they were doing the same thing.  Harvey Hilderbran formed the TRRCC PAC that year.  We had serious discussions
about merging the boards at that time.  GOPAC no longer has a state PAC.”

 

UPDATE: 

Please understand what the TRRCC is, it is a PAC that is used to keep Republicans in Office, that is what it is billed as. The challenge is,  just like at the National Level it is used to keep incumbents in office and does not allow Grassroots candidates to have a chance because the money behind the incumbents is so large. That is why the Pledge Card system was so corrupt.

This is not about Phil King, this is about Corruption in Texas politics. Please click on photo of the capital on the invitation below to a TRRCC event and see the kind of money that is raised against grassroots candidates.

Texas House Republican Who’d Been Key Straus Foe
Emerges as Director on Speaker Leadership Team PAC

Phil King Joins High-Ranking Straus Lieutenants as Finance Committee Member
on Fundraiser Invite in Development that Will Spark Speculation on Conversion

By Mike Hailey
Capitol Inside Editor

“A veteran state lawmaker who’s been one of Speaker Joe Straus’ most prominent opponents has signed on as an official for a political action committee that’s holding a fundraiser next week with the Texas House’s top leader as the featured guest.

State Rep. Phil King – a Weatherford Republican who’d been widely regarded as a major force behind a mutiny that Straus survived last year – is listed along with three of the speaker’s closest allies as members of the finance committee on the invitation for the Texas Republican Representatives Campaign Committee reception that’s set for Wednesday in Houston.

While the names of 13 House Republicans appear at the top of the TRRCC fundraiser invitation, all of them with the exception of King have been loyal Straus supporters since conservatives sought without success to oust him from the leadership position when he won a second term as speaker in early 2011.

WOW~ Texas Speaker Joe Straus makes even David Dewhurst look conservative. Maybe that is why Grassroots/Tea Party folks are wanting to replace Joe Straus as Speaker of the Texas House! Here is a video that might explain why people are voicing their opinion to their local State Rep.’s who will be voting on who the Speaker will be  and saying it is time for a #SpeakerShowdown in January.

VIDEO: SMU Alumnae Blast Leftist Panel, Sandra Fluke at Alma Mater

“One noteworthy questioner was Virginia Prodan, a Dedman (SMU) Law School graduate and immigrant from the former Soviet Republic of Romania. Prodan shared her story to the panel and others about how she had witnessed the fallout from government intervention in areas like health care during her time in Romania.” 
(By the way Virginia Prodan happens to be one an amazing woman in my book)

Question? Is the Muslim Brotherhood our enemy?

Date posted: September 27, 2012

By Frank Gaffney

President Obama has made a priority throughout his presidency of “outreach” and “engagement” with what he calls the Muslim “world”. In practice, that has meant enabling the Muslim Brotherhood to come to power in Egypt and elsewhere in the Middle East and accommodating the nuclear and other influence operations the Brothers call “civilization jihad” to bring the Islamists’ shariah doctrine to America. He even told the UN General Assembly that, “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.”

Now, as the cumulative effect of these efforts has begun to manifest itself in violence against our diplomats, missions and interests around the world and in talk of suppressing free expression here at home, the wisdom of these policies must be challenged. 

The Muslim Brotherhood is committed to our destruction. Ditto the mullahs of Iran. Should we be appeasing, legitimating, engaging, enriching ($6.8 billion-and-counting to Egypt’s new Brotherhood-dominated government alone: and emboldening these Islamists?
