Open Letter to Mr. Erick Erickson

Dear Erick Erickson:

I don’t know you that well. I only read an article from time to time but what kind of a poor excuse for a patriot are you? First the injury (voter fraud and attacks on McDaniel) then the insult (they can’t speak up).  Your silencing anyone from participating in an invite to a question and answer speaks volumes.  Thanks a lot.

I am dismayed at your site’s refusal to allow concerned Americans who happen to be from Mississippi and who are very upset at the obvious voter fraud and race baiting that has gone on, has gone unpunished by the RNC. On the contrary, it is being completely ignored. It is not only a sign of things that have happened before (Chairman Priebus dismisses votes from Ron Paul delegates at the 2012 RNC Convention), but of a sign of things to come you may not know about, because you were not a part of that particular place in history like I was, so consider this a post which took 55 years to write.  Wise up there, Mr. Erickson!

I wasn’t born last night, but I wrote this on his Facebook timeline last night:

Republican National Committee started a Q&A.  August 9 at 2:27 pm · Chairman Reince Priebus is at the RedState Gathering & ready to take your questions for the next 30 minutes:

questions and answersLet me tell you something, Mr. Priebus.. Cuba had a revolution because a corrupt RINO (yes, a Republican), justified an opportunistic, charismatic and evil revolutionary to take his place. If you continue with the corruption, allowing for voter fraud, amnesty, hating women, children and using blacks as tokens for your campaigning, you will either starve the party to death or invite a very nasty consequence for all. I don’t even want to think of it. Sometimes there are things that are more important than money, power or fame. That is human decency, honor and a respect for the people of a nation who have begged you to listen. I don’t know how you sleep at night betraying not just us, but this wonderful country, but you will not rob ME of mine. Shame on you for taking one red cent from anyone to push the LEFT’s agenda. I see why you’ve been hired-anyone who can keep a straight face with the emails and earfuls you must be getting… is beyond hopeless. For shame!  ~ Isabel

If you need more information about the history of the take-over, I will be happy to provide it, but it is best summarized in just a few lines for a lesson learned: Corruption is foolish because it gives the left the justification to impose their own corruption (which is worse). Only a party that leads with moral authority instills fear in the opponent and wins victories. When you help the GOPe by covering up its corruption it further impedes our rights to not only free speech, but the benefits of honest leadership, integrity of a political process and the very future of our Republic. We, the voters, take this seriously.

Instead of serving yourself by covering for cowards and sellouts who have done less than nothing for our party, join us in taking on the corruption you have sometimes alluded to in your electoral articles.  It takes guts to be a patriot, and part of that means sacrificing certain privileges and “access” to power. I saw a lot of soft ball questions and weak-knee’d patriots all over the thread. That’s the type of constituents the GOPe wants: easily steered sheeple (maybe, like you).

Priebus-Over-Shoulder-Breitbart

These are just some of the comments you made in the article where a moderator (possibly hired) repeated similar lingo, just to deny voters the chance to express their opinions about fraud in Mississippi’s race and to protect Reince from them.

We invited Reince Priebus, Chairman of the RNC, to the RedState Gathering. Normally at the Gathering, with some exceptions, we ask our speakers to take questions from the crowd. Twice now the Chairman of the RNC has come and taken questions from the crowd.  This year, I insisted on asking the questions in a conversational interview format.

After the interview, a number of attendees expressed their anger to me that they could not ask questions.In fact, one was so deeply hostile that after yelling at me, he stormed from the room, yelled at another attendee, then tried yelling at Reince. At the conclusion of the Gathering, he came up to me and apologized and noted his reaction was proof I had done the right thing.

Here’s what I got: 1) you may have exaggerated the story to justify your actions, or 2) the story of the attendee was also exaggerated to portray these voters as an angry mob that has to be dealt with.  You then wrote:

Secondly… more importantly, during the Gathering we became aware of an organized effort to embarrass the Chairman and otherwise disrupt the event. In fact, when I undercut the effort, one person affiliated with one of our sponsors began loudly playing ringtones from his phone to disrupt the event. Another tried to block the video camera recording the event with a sign.

There is nothing conversational about dismissing people’s rightful anger and right to speak up. You should have expected and managed the situation, but the RNC is making a case for not having open primaries anyway so this is just one more reason to justify it. You protected the same Chairman who cynically used an image of a T.E.A. sign in a survey he wants answered to give the impression he is listening.  Is that not enough to sicken you? Post byReince Priebus.

gop

Mr. Erickson, you could use your writing skills to enlighten voters by letting them know that the RNC Chair is a mouthpiece for the GOPe, and with all due respect, a hired liar who looks innocent so he can deceive..why not? It’s true!

You could also start by admitting to yourself that the RNC Chair could not care less about the people he is asking support or opinions from, and show respect for voters by treating him like someone who is supposed to serve and represent us, not a celebrity with a fragile ego. Given all the mischief going on in the establishment, why are you not helping us fight this war against a machine that is desperately seeking to crush us? It is no secret: the GOPe wants to engage us in Death by Suicide. Why take that side? We need people to hold them to task, not be intimidated by them.  They are cowards, remember? Have I missed anything?

Back to the context which I started with: We (Cuban-Americans who fled Fidel Castro’s communist dictatorship) have been called many names:  angry Anti-Castro mob, Cuban Mafia, etc. It’s not new.  The name calling is a smear tactic to intimidate and coerce into submission. Unlike the GOPe who fears the president and media’s “smears”, a true patriot does not care what names they are called.

In the meantime, no one has the right to cast a negative light on people who have a right to complain about a victory they were robbed of and are now being given the runaround on.  You may not agree, but the GOPe is governing in despotic ways.  It may be in the form of dopey surveys and shutting people out at “gatherings” where they were, again, invited to participate, but it’s a red flag for some of us who have been speaking up for a while. Please explain how people taking the time to attend your Q & A and showing up with signs saying #remembermississippi are in any way a threat to Reince Priebus. We have been treated worse and are happy warriors. So what’s the big deal?

A dozen people, that’s it? You couldn’t handle 12 voters. If there isn’t an awareness on your part that the lack of courage to stand up to our establishment is part of the problem, and that because of that corruption conditions are ripe for a revolution (in Cuba it was from the left), then history will repeat itself.

This is America, though, and revolutions arise for all the right reasons, to protect the People, the Truth, God’s stewardship and Independence from tyranny. The corrupt leaders in our party have been paving the way for a corrupt left to be emboldened and move forward to replace us. It should make you stop and think: you should not take for granted what the Good Lord intended for this country, and how it was envisioned by its founders.

My country never had that unique feature in its Constitution. Yes.  Stop. Think.  And Thank Him for history to unfold a revolution of honor and goodness that will replace the evil one in which the rest of you will have all lost your way.

Sincerely,

 

Isabel Matos

Another Rino Wins A Primary: Lamar Alexander from TENNESSEE

lamar-alexander-w-rand-paul-ap

By Isabel Matos

From US4Palin Joe Carr lost his U.S. Senate bid to incumbent Lamar Alexander according to the Tennessee Secretary of State unofficial election results posted tonight. Alexander got 51% of the vote and Carr got 38%. When Gov. Palin endorsed him a week ago, Carr was down by 29 points. He closed the gap to 13 points.  End article here for Governor Palin’s Endorsement success.

Great article by CHQ  to amplify why Lamar had to lie to win, like all Rinos do.

“Lamar Alexander’s support of amnesty paved the way for our current border crisis and is a direct attack on America’s workers,” said Carr.  “Tennessee’s working families have a right to know whether Lamar Alexander will continue his support of amnesty.  It is unacceptable for Tennessee’s senior Senator to remain silent on this growing national crisis that his support of amnesty helped cause. Lamar needs to come out of hiding and explain himself.”

Finally, for us, I needed to add Senator Rand Paul’s photo because he endorsed him.  He did a cameo in one of his ads for his campaign which was published here.  He has been on the wrong side of just about every race except North Carolina.

We have a problem.  It’s the Primary stupid! They want to cut us off at the primary level and Reince was talking about terminating open primaries altogether.  It’s not good what we are seeing, EVEN IF some are saying and counting on Real Clear Politics polling that we may pick up 7 seats. It’s late. We will talk more tomorrow.

It’s a Small World for Spanish-Speaking Supporters of Sarah Palin Channel!

sarah iowa roguerogue channel

By Isabel Matos

Our post got a mention from the Spanish blogger who has referred to us as “mis amigos” (his friends) at A Time for Choosing.  He says that what I wrote about the Spanish media’s mocking of the Spanish Palin Channel is true, emphasizing in particular that the channel has been mocked because of the $9.95 subscription (that is in reference to the media’s snide remarks about paying the monthly fee for her (Sarah’s) patriotism. He adds that it is also true that where he is from, Spain, no one save for the readers of his Blog, Going Rogue Going Palin, would even know a word about it.  Nothing new under the sun, “querida (dear) Isabel”, he adds. “I’m happy with the subscription rate which is reasonable and I’m loving being a user.” If you want to play you have to pay, he says, and SPC is no exception. So, to the “Rojos” (the Reds):  “It’s been TO HECK with you long ago! I’m all in on Sarah Palin’s latest!” (That is the gist of what was written below):

A vueltas con esto de su nuevo canal de noticias, el “Sarah Palin Channel”, me hago eco de una noticia que me envían mis amigos del blog A Time For Choosing sobre la repercusión que ha tenido entre los medios de comunicación hispanohablantes este lanzamiento. Por descontado, ha sido nulo o, como mucho, se burlan porque hay que abonar una cuota de suscripción, dando a entender que no es más que una treta de los Palin para hacer dinero. Por mi parte, tengo que lamentar que en España, salvo los que leen “Going Rogue, Going Palin”, nadie sepa ni una palabra. Pero eso ya era de suponer, teniendo en cuenta cómo andan las cosas por aquí. Así que, querida Isabel, nada nuevo bajo la capa del sol. Por cierto, sobre lo de la cuota de abono: a mí me parece muy lógico, me parece muy barata y estoy encantado de abonarme. Quien algo quiere, algo le cuesta y el Canal Sarah tiene un coste, evidentemente. Así que, rojos, idos a la mierda; yo me voy a ver lo último que ha colgado Sarah.

[I just want to reiterate that by these posts I am not personally committing to doing versions of the Channel in Spanish on a regular basis. It is experimental. If there is a desire for it.. or a need, it would be enjoyable but it is time-consuming.  Let's see what happens is what I live by.  No promises. Thanks as always. Isabel]

Lanzamiento de Sarah Palin Channel

sarah iowa rogue

By Isabel Matos

I was intrigued by some of the international coverage of the launching of the Sarah Palin Channel last Monday for two reasons:

1.  The Spanish speaking media tends to be left leaning and is a huge audience in this country. There were references made to Tina Fey impersonations and the fact that users (snidely mentioned) could enjoy her “patriotism” for just $9.95 a month in the newspaper clip I read. They also included a reference that Obama is her favorite target which I kept. I did not write the script. I just tweaked parts of an article clip from Agence France Presse and La Estrella de Panama online.

2.  Sarah Palin has been criticized by some Rino advocates and cheerleaders as not appealing to Hispanics. That is a myth that is being created to keep this demographic away from her, but the impact of the media in that respect is undeniable.

I just loved doing this. I hope you enjoy it and I hope people realize Sarah Palin does appeal to Hispanics but the media has to help.  I have no intentions of making this my sole purpose from now on, but things are so organic in politics, especially in this movement sometimes, that one never knows what roads we are led to follow if needed. I will keep an eye on Spanish coverage from time to time.

Please enjoy the clip, above all.  That was the original intention.  Thank you.

Governor Sarah Palin Launches SarahPalinChannel.com

2

****UPDATE BY GARY****
I’ve check out The Sarah Palin Channel and this looks a lot like a run up to something big. This will be Sarah Palin unfiltered and unrestrained. At $9.95 a month [with discount for paying a year up front and FREE to the military] it’s a money making venture, but looking at the available content, it looks to be all about hard core commentary, as well as hard core solutions to the issues of the day.

Is this a run up to a campaign for the presidency of the United States, or just a better way for Governor Palin to get her message out to every American? I guess only time will tell.

In the late 1970s, after leaving office as Governor of California, and an unsuccessful bid for the Republican nomination for president, Ronald Reagan took to the radio to get his messages out on a weekly basis. What Governor Palin is doing is the modern day equivalent. Only time will tell what the end goal of this is. Meanwhile…….

By Isabel Matos

There was talk that in April Sarah Palin would launch a digital video channel of her own. Well, it happened but it’s not called Rogue TV. What a refreshing and exciting new project.  Sarah says this is about a lot more than a news channel, but a community where we will be able to share ideas and discuss the issues of the day to find solutions.  She wants to talk directly to us on her terms on this channel without the need to please the powers-that-be. Most importantly she is interested in hearing from us directly.  Together she says we will go beyond the sound bites and cut through the politically correct filter of the media and things like Washington D.C.’s crony capitalism. She says we’ll go around all that and go directly to the root of the problems confronting America and talk about the issues the mainstream media won’t talk about, and look at the ideas Washington doesn’t want you to hear. It will be inspiring, fun.. and there is even more..

Sarah Palin

Tired of media filters? Well, so am I. So, let’s go rogue together and launch our own member-supported channel! This will be OUR channel, for you and for me, and we’ll all get to call it like it is. Please enjoy this video about this new venture and visit https://sarahpalinchannel.com/

I hope you’ll check out this new online community and help us build it.

Ouch. That Was Embarrassing, Curt.

clawson-scandal

By Isabel Matos

This is what happens when you try to pay your way into politics to stroke your ego, or out of a whim that only a multi-millionaire can afford.  Anyone can make mistakes but you fooled a lot of people and now you can’t hide the ‘phony’.  The deserving candidate and Palin-endorsed Lizbeth Benacquisto would have never gaffed like this. But I’m feeling generous tonight. Maybe you really weren’t lying when you said your were an “outsider”.. as in a fish out of water.  This was.. well..

A.w.k.w.a.r.d.

Sammy Hagar Promises to Pay Sarah Palin’s Next Speeding Ticket if She “Does Better”

Sammy Hagar Cabo Wabo

By Gary P Jackson

Something on the lighter side of things to start the day. As readers may have heard, Sarah Palin was going a little fast the other day in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. When stopped by the police, she “blamed” rock legend Sammy Hagar [jokingly, of course] for the offense.

Governor Palin was stopped on July 16 driving her Toyota Tundra pickup with the license plate “LUVUSA” and was fined $154 for driving 63 mph in a 45 mph zone. She was driving home from an early morning Bikram hot yoga workout in Anchorage, according to reports. As it happens she was listening to Sammy Hagar’s mega-hit “I Can’t Drive 55” before she was stopped!

I was thinking, I wasn’t speeding, I was qualifying,” she said.

On Wednesday Sammy Hagar sent Governor Palin a tweet offering to pay her next speeding ticket, if she promises to “do better next time.” We assume that means breaking the century mark on the old speedometer!

As you know, Governor Palin loves speed. Besides going to the Daytona 500 a few years back, she’s taken a ride at the Indy 500 festival with racing legend Parnelli Jones and hung out in the pits during the race with team owner Sarah Fisher-Hartman:

Palin Endorses Joe Carr for U.S. Senate

joe carr

By Isabel Matos

Sarah Palin has a new Endorsement, and a Message for Lamar Alexander:

Thank you, Lamar Alexander, for the respect and integrity you’ve shown in your many years of public service in Washington. With the new challenges in D.C., the time has come for new leaders who are willing to stand up to the political establishments and the Obama administration and say, “no mas!” Unfortunately, advocating and voting for amnesty, cash for clunkers, bailouts, raising the debt ceiling, and many controversial Obama administration nominees has marred the incumbent’s record. It’s time for a change.

Joe Carr is the new voice Tennessee needs in the U.S. Senate! Joe is a citizen legislator who brings his small business experience to bear in the Tennessee General Assembly. He’s stood up to those in his own party, fighting to enact some of the toughest illegal immigration legislation in the country and working to make Tennessee the 4th most business friendly state in the nation. Joe knows that government is most often the problem, not the solution, and he will work to reduce the size of our federal bureaucracy and always use the Constitution as his guide.

It’s a disappointment that after so many years in office Senator Alexander has refused to debate Joe Carr in this campaign. Really, it’s pretty unbelievable because the good people of Tennessee deserve to hear from both these candidates to know who will be on their side and who will choose the Washington status quo.

The conservative grassroots patriots in Tennessee have clearly spoken. When I visited there earlier this month, I was impressed by all the energy and momentum behind Joe Carr. Please join me in supporting him as the Volunteer State’s next Senator!

David Perdue Wins Georgia Primary By Small Margin. The Story: Anti-Amnesty

RESULTS

Senate_Georgia-0026d

By Isabel Matos

Governor Sarah Palin called for unity to support the conservative contenders who won last night’s primary in Georgia, congratulating them and saying they “can now move forward to the general election” and are “one step closer to putting America on the right track!”

House candidate Barry Loudermilk won the Georgia primary run-off tonight. He’ll be an excellent voice representing the Peach State’s 11th Congressional district. Congratulations also to Senate candidate David Perdue on his win and we’ll all work together to hold this important Senate seat for the GOP. Now it’s time to unite behind our nominees and work together in the race to November, for it is a race at the crossroad of our future. Thank you, candidates, campaign staff, and especially you great volunteers! Keep the faith.  

David Perdue for U.S. Senate

I’m a Rino watch dog but after a primary has been won Rino Hunting Season is over and we back the primary winners to DEFEAT the left.  Here’s one reason to feel pumped to vote for Perdue in case you haven’t found any others:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supported Kingston, who benefited from over $3

million in campaign spending from the lobby group.

Yes, David Perdue spent $3 million of his own money to back his bid and beat even the Chamber of Communism because he created a last-minute “outsider” impression (remember phony outsider Curt Clawson?).

That could be one reason for the win: smart move to associate Kingston to unpopular Amnesty. The lesson to be learned by boy and girl candidates running to win and thinking that accepting money from the Chamber of Commerce will ensure those wins, make a mistake.  Former Majority Leader Eric Cantor got whipped by Dave Brat who capitalized on Cantor’s Amnesty stance. IMAGE TRUMPS EVEN BIG $. Brat had way less money than Perdue, but he was outspent and still won.  Whether it is sincere or not (I don’t believe Perdue is about being against amnesty), it will and should hurt you if you have ties to Anti-American Alinsky-lite lobbyists like the Chamber of Communism. Here’s the ad that did Kingston in:

Another smart move on the part of the big PACS like Karl Rove’s and others. In Georgia they kept pretty quiet.  Sean Sullivan points out very astutely four months ago:

That makes sense because a lot of people have been confused about who is supporting who down there, even the volunteers on the ground. It was a crowded primary but laissez-faire seemed to work (in my opinion the races who have had the least attention nationally have faired better than those where like lightning rods attract the ugly establishment civil war which is a black eye for the party. It is good that this is a fight as I said earlier. Back to the quiet SuperPac strategy worked:

The anti-tax Club For Growth is nowhere to be found. Karl Rove’s American Crossroads hasn’t made a peep. Establishment agitator Senate Conservatives Fund/Action? Radio silence.

The Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Georgia had caught the attention of super PACs — but not the usual heavy hitters that typically muscle into primaries with tea party-vs.-establishment battle lines. Instead, obscurer cousins like Ending Spending Action Fund and Citizens for a Working America have populated the air space. In a crowded race most watchers predict will head to a top-two runoff on May 20, that dynamic is mostly good news for Republicans hoping to nominate an electable contender. It’s especially good news for businessman David Perdue, who has not taken any blows on the air from a third-party group yet.

Who is David Perdue? 

David Perdue is the cousin of former Governor Sonny Perdue and former CEO of Dollar General. He defeated U.S. Representative Jack Kingston last night. That was after the primary with a list of contenders including Phil Gingrey, and libertarian Paul Broun supported by Paul Viguerie.  David Perdue is a liberal Republican who during the primary offended 65% of Georgians when he ridiculed Karen Handel for not obtaining a college degree.

Perdue had placed first by a small margin in the primary (he needed 51% to win.) After victory last night, also by a small margin, he will challenge Democrat Michelle Nunn in the general. Nunn is the former CEO of George H.W. Bush-founded Points of Light Foundation and daughter of former Georgia Democratic Sen. Sam Nunn. Daughter Nunn is a strong candidate for Democrats despite Georgia’s deep red leanings in recent years. Polls have shown Nunn narrowly beating Republicans in the general. Remember Karen Handel? She endorsed James Kingston in the runoff.

john

Karen’s so-called loss was considered a moral victory for many because she did not compromise her principles and “earned a lot of people’s respect.”

“Whether you like Karen Handel or not I think everybody has got to agree that she has exceeded expectations of what most people thought would happen in this race,” BUZZFEED article.

It was crazy for Georgians to hesitate to elect a woman to represent them. She was perfectly positioned to take on the left’s REAL war on women. Who better than a woman from the right?  Karen said it best herself:

“It’s a different dynamic when there are two women discussing the ‘war on women”.  She said it wouldn’t “go very far with her.”

But some districts were not ready for such a change.

*****

Reactions to Perdue’s victory are mixed among voters who shared their thoughts and probably represent many in Georgia:

Andrea Lowrie says Perdue’s stated positions are conservative- secure the borders, repeal Obamacare, balance the budget, local control of education, etc. You can read his positions here; there is a link in the “Defending our values section where you can read his response to National Right to Life questionnaire.

While Jerry Withrow contends he will support the Libertarian to see a Nunn win!! He says he does not “understand how the new’s yesterday in Georgia is Good News.” Perdue is Pro Abortion, a Big cronie Capitalist and he supports Common Core and open boarders. 
I understand the confusion, the diversity of opinions and fragmentation, but the fact is, we must continue to flex our muscles while keeping the bigger picture and our focus clear: ABSOLUTELY NO DEMOCRATS MUST WIN IN NOVEMBER -not in the Senate -not in the House chamber/s.  RINO Season Ends is what Sarah said at the Alabama Keynote in Orange Beach. It is what we have to deal with as Republicans, Independents who lean Republican, or Disenchanted Democrats).

Palin Endorsee Barry Loudermilk Wins!

loudermilk

By Isabel Matos

Just a simple SHOUT OUT to Barry Loudermilk who won the primary in Georgia tonight.  He posted this comment on his timeline just moments ago:

A sincere thank you to our wonderful team for your hard work and dedication to the cause. To those who came out to the polls today; thank you for exercising your freedom and fulfilling your duty to vote.

US4Palin (Facebook page) reported:

Things were not peachy keen for Dr. Bob Johnson. He lost GA-1 getting 46% of the vote as 221 (95%) of the 232 precincts came in Ibatom tonight reportedThe winner, Buddy Carter with 54% of the vote will face tonight’s Democratic winner – Brian Reese – in the general.

faith family

Gov. Palin endorsed both men last week in a Facebook Status She wrote tonight: Barry Loudermilk has a proven record of conservatism in the Georgia General Assembly, one that I hope he can bring to the weak-kneed in the halls of Congress. Barry is an Air Force veteran, small business owner, father, grandfather, and husband who met his beautiful wife in the great state of Alaska many summers ago. Barry will take his strong work ethic, life experiences, and conservative principles to Washington where he will join the fight to restore our great nation and use the Constitution as his guide.

Both told Kevin Scholla, host of the Palin Update on Mama Grizzly Radio, that they want to Repeal ObamaCare.

As of tonight, 16 elections have been held in which Governor Palin endorsed a candidate. With seven out of 16 wins, her current 2014 Endorsement Success Rate is 43.75%.
