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.

Chris McDaniel: I Beat Thad Cochran by 25,000 Votes

Isabel Matos:

So why is it that the MS Republican Executive Committee (the KANGAROO COURT I call it) is not hearing the challenge? It seems the RNC has plans to end open primaries altogether and Mississippi is being used as a prime example why. Of course, they are acting like Third World despots. What are we going to do with the GOPe?

Chris McDaniel: I Beat Thad Cochran by 25,000 Votes

by Matthew Boyle Via Breitbart –
Six weeks after the primary runoff election, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is launching his formal legal challenge of the election results, saying the evidence is so conclusive that he will be calling for courts to recognize him as the true victor of the race rather than calling for a new election.
“Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling. We determined that of the Democrats that did cross over, 71 percent of them admitted they will not support the Republican in the general election. When you take those polling numbers and you go in and do the…

Senator Chris McDaniel Releases Evidence, Establishment Machine Strikes Back With Dirty Tactics

Isabel Matos:

Senator Chris McDaniel writes:

To understand the past few days, this is a must read. From the article:
“Throughout this historic Senate race, it seems every time good news emerges for the Chris McDaniel campaign, the establishment and their cohorts in the media step in and put the brakes on to stop the momentum. Wednesday was a great example of that tactic.
With the filing of the legal challenge on Monday, the McDaniel campaign seized the initiative. After weeks of hearing “put up or shut up” by the Cochran people, Senator McDaniel and his attorney, Mitch Tyner, released evidence of massive vote fraud, likely initiated by the Cochran campaign, in a detailed report that encompassed 243 pages.”

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]

‘Gloat’ Old Party Boasts Incumbent Win in KS. Aren’t They Being Short-Sighted?

Roberts Beats Milton

By Isabel Matos

Because of time constraints and the fact (I have to be honest) that Sarah Palin did not throw an endorsement his way, I was just crossing my fingers hoping Dr. Milton Wolf, radiologist and distant cousin of President Barack Obama, would topple an incumbent GOP senator in 2014.

Dan Riehl 8/2/2014 of the Conversation writes:

If you want to truly understand politics, especially of the Right-leaning variety, you’ll have to look beyond the dumbed-down, self-congratulatory so called journalism of Beltway establishment publications like Politico.

Here is their headline out of Kansas: How Pat Roberts beat Milton Wolf. But the real story has to be read between the lines.

Pat Roberts’ narrower-than-expected win over challenger Milton Wolf on Tuesday night — came with a big lift from party headquarters in Washington.

The Republican Party threw everything they had behind Roberts …. and what did they get for it? Less than 50% of their own base vote, that’s what. The anti-Roberts vote was split, not “defeated.”

Roberts defeated Wolf, 48 percent to 41 percent; a pair of minor candidates combined for the remaining 11 percent of the vote.

I will add (source: Politico)

The NRSC sent six workers to the Kansas City area for the final 10 days, and they knocked on more than 10,000 doors in Johnson County alone, a party official said. A Washington phone bank set up by the NRSC also made more than 40,000 phone calls in the final three weeks. Ultimately, Roberts fought Wolf to a virtual tie in Johnson County. Wolf took 45.7 percent to Roberts’ 45.4 percent, a 147-vote edge. 

That is hardly overwhelming but it just shows how Establishment knows the ropes of primaries. They’ve beat the Tea Party in almost every one by design. If they beat us at the primary level, it doesn’t matter what happens at the Election because all they want is to be IN Washington, with or without a majority.  Of course, when they talk about a majority they forget that they depend on the base, the very voters and candidates who represent them that they are trying to crush at the primary level to obtain it, thus the bad blood and “civil war” in the party. So many still don’t get it. They do not deserve us!

Back to Dan Riehl’s commentary:

The D.C. GOP consultant class can back-slap all they want. They may even dance themselves silly right out of their expensive loafers. Unfortunately, all the results from Kansas last night proved is that the Republican Party continues to be a party at odds with its base. Furthermore, if they continue to try and ignore that reality, anything and everything they think they are winning now will be wiped away with a disastrous defeat in 2016.  Read the rest here.

******

Wolf meets Roberts asking for Debate:

It is interesting that Sarah Palin did not endorse Dr. WOLF, but would it have made a difference?   It reminded me of the Kentucky race where she did not get involved by supporting Matt Bevin who lost. Just like in Bevin’s case, the establishment media coverage seems to have owned the narrative early on.

The Tennessee primary is on Thursday. Lamar Alexander vs. Palin-endorsed and underdog Joe Carr.  We will post on that soon.

The Real Story: Chris McDaniel’s Historic US Senate Campaign

Isabel Matos:

Chris McDaniel deserves a clean victory. There should be no write-in, no other election, or no third party solution.. McDaniel won this race fair and square. and should be the nominee. Let’s pray he prevails. He has the evidence. He has the fight in him. And he has the Truth on his side. What more can we ask? There is no gray area here. It’s black and white. I don’t think in this case Cochran has a LEG to stand on. What the GOPe did was not only unfair it was illegal. Cochran and the GOPe have exposed themselves. They will have to answer for their deeds: heads will have to roll. and arrests made if need be. This is one victory they will have no moral or political authority over. They’ve cheated before but finally got caught. It’s illegality clear as day. The race has even transcended even politics. It has an inspiring message that you never surrender if you believe that what you are doing is right.

In his most recent column on the establishment website Y’all Politics, Frank Corder gives his assessment of the current state of politics in Mississippi and his predictions for the general election this November and state races in 2015.

But what caught my attention, aside from his flawed analysis, has been his consistent downplaying of Senator Chris McDaniel’s historic effort to replace Thad Cochran in the United States Senate. This has been the theme, not only from Corder and the hacks at Y’all Politics, but also from the media establishment throughout the state.

Translation, Please! Marco Rubio “Explains” Flip on Immigration Stance.

By Isabel Matos

This was part of a conversation in a thread shared in our group which I found amusing.  I think as most people had this reaction when they saw Rubio try explain his flip to Chris, but evaded the question instead. If I explain it too much it takes away the funny.

H:  What, did, this, guy, say? Please, translate?

L:  I was hoping you would know? :)

H:  Ha, L! ;)

I:   Omg. I didn’t understand him LMAO.

L:  I watched this again this morning and thought…what a smug little bastard!

I:   It’s not even funny. Last year I’d post about him and would get tons of attention. No longer. He gets less views than even Jeb. Rubio fell on the sword for him. Hope he’s happy.

F:   His answers sounded like Paul Ryan’s answers, when he was asked similar questions.

Chris Wallace Grills Marco Rubio on Immigration: If Not Political, Why Did You Flip Fox News Sunday

Chris Wallace GRILLS Marco Rubio For flipping On Immigration. Fox News Sunday Chris Wallace grilled Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) Sunday morning over the lawmaker’s shifting immigration policies after his shepherding of comprehensive immigration reform last year cost him mightily among conservative voters.

When I got involved in the issue I knew how difficult is was politically,” Rubio replied. “But I ran for office to make a difference. …I don’t know what it means politically for me or anybody else, but that’s not my job. I didn’t get elected to maintain good poll numbers nationally.”

But if it’s not political, why have you flipped?” Wallace asked, noting that Rubio’s bill had included a path to citizenship along with increased border security, but that Rubio now believes reform should be implemented in stages, with a path to citizenship coming last.

We’re not debating what to do, we’re debating how to do it,” Rubio said. “I’m just telling you, we will never have the votes necessary to pass, in one bill, all of those things. It just won’t happen. So our choices are, we can either continue to beat out head against the wall and try a process for which we’ll never have support, or we can try another way we can make progress on.”

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.

It’s Official! Chris McDaniel to File Formal Legal Challenge.

By Isabel Matos

Updated 8:40 p.m. Digital Copy of Challenge Filed

Chris McDaniel’s campaign has announced it is challenging the results of the June 24th runoff election because of evidence that McDaniel should have won. The formal challenge will be sent to the Mississippi Republican Party Executive Committee Monday.

In the afternoon press conference, Chris McDaniel said he sees this as an opportunity for the party to take the lead on honest, good transparent elections. He says he believes the Executive Committee will grant them a hearing. His attorney went on to say they hope that will happen 8 days from now.

You’ll remember, the GOP Executive Committee had already unanimously voted to certify the election results. Since the runoff, McDaniel volunteers have spent days pouring through poll books and ballot materials. One concern has been crossover votes.

McDaniels campaign says it has found approximately 3,500 crossover votes and that “mathematics” show McDaniel should have won Republican nomination. Certified results showed incumbent U.S. Senator Thad Cochran with a 7,667 vote margin of victory.State election law prohibits anyone from voting in a party’s primary and the other party’s runoff. McDaniel’s campaign claims that Democrats helped Cochran win the election.

Earlier Monday, Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef said he’s tried to remain neutral throughout the whole process. He says he still can’t say a whole lot about the challenge because he would serve in a judge role for the GOP executive committee.

There are limited rules on how the Executive Committee will handle challenges. The party chairman says there’s not really a precedent for this.

Copyright 2014 MSNewsNow. All rights reserved.

UPDATED 3:28 by Isabel: Attorney Mitch Tyner said that 71 percent of those who voted for Cochran in the run off admitted they would not vote for him in the election. He said that if the courts accept their information McDaniel won by 25,000 votes. They want an Open hearing where Republicans – all Republicans – can be present to ensure fairness.  As we await the official clip you may refer to the last press conference with information on what they had found. First photo courtesy of Maria Mchnis Mooney.  Other two by Isabel Matos.
