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.

Laura Ingraham’s “Draconian” Measures for Border Crisis

By Isabel Matos

Laura Ingraham is not every Sarah Palin supporter’s favorite talk show host, but she has been a steady and effective activist against Amnesty. She helped Dave Brat to victory in Virginia.  She has been an outspoken critic of Renee Ellmers, exposing her stance on amnesty during a contentious radio interview, and she is now helping Joe Carr in his race against Lamar Alexander, a Rino incumbent nemesis. Her endorsement of Carr has already helped him surge in the polls.

Laura was on Bill O’Reilly last month.  This is what she said she’d do about the border crisis and illegal immigration in general (in case you missed it). Many people I know who know her track record with Palin have had to agree these are common sense solutions to a problem the politicians are just wanting to ignore.

In 15 minutes she brought O’Reilly’s Immigration spin zone to a complete halt listing all of her solutions for sane immigration policy as follows:
  1. Deportation  OK, first thing you do is start deporting people — not by the hundreds, not by the dozens. By the thousands. And that means entire families. Not just a father, a mother. But we keep families unified by deporting all people who are are here illegally, that’s number one.
  2. Number two, we have to stop visas and stop foreign aid to countries who will not repatriate the citizens of those countries that left and came to our country illegally. We’re seeing this with Guatemala, [El] Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras, some of the South American countries. If they don’t agree to repatriate their citizens back home and stop sending signals, implicitly, explicitly, that people should come here, then they get no foreign aid, we stop all visas from those countries coming in. This is a crisis, and we have to deal with it in a serious way.
  3. Number three, I think there has to be an end to this thing called birthright citizenship. Some people call it anchor babies. But this is not required by our Constitution, it doesn’t require a constitutional amendment. Harry Reid was for this about 15, 16 years ago. He went on the Senate floor and proclaimed that we should end birthright citizenship. So, that should go.
  4. Having severe civil penalties against employers We should also have severe penalties in place that are enforced, Bill, against employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants and undercut the American worker and the legal immigrants who want to earn a decent wage. Severe civil penalties. If they have to be criminal penalties for successive violations, we have to do that.
  5. Building a wall or fence in places along the border I think Krauthammer is right, we need a wall and/or a fence in the places along the border that that is practical. We have to absolutely have that in place. That is practical and enforcing the border with the national guards, and filing lawsuits against states that do not enforce the border.
  6. Taking magnets away such as welfare for households, food stamps, disability, bank accounts and housing should not be allowed. I think no welfare for households that house illegal aliens. That’s a big magnet. Food stamps, disability, obviously the concern about Obamacare, that’s critical. We also have to make sure that bank accounts, housing, people who can rent houses — if you’re in the country illegally, why are you allowed to enter into a rental agreement —  to live in this country? That should not be allowed. So, there are a lot of common sense steps that we can take that both take the magnet away, we enforce the border, as you said, with the National Guard, we work with border states at a federal level. And we don’t file lawsuits against the border states when they actually want to enforce the border.

O’Reilly:  argued that mass deportations would make the Republican Party obsolete, that it would ensure Hillary Clinton’s election in 2016.  He said that was Rove’s argument and called these measures draconian. He also said 67%  of Americans want some kind of pathway. Ingraham pointed out the GOPe is buying the left’s argument and that Karl Rove has made electoral mistakes in the last few elections. O’Reilly insisted it could be done without destroying the party.
Laura: The Republican Party has done a good job of destroying itself.

“American Idol” Clay Aiken Will Face GOP Incumbent, Amnesty Shill Renee Ellmers Beats Angry Tea Party Frank ROCHE in North Carolina 5/6

clay aiken 1ellmers-and-ryan-apaiken vs elmers

by Isabel Matos

Yes. It’s true. And this will shock a lot of people not involved in politics but it is bound to get a lot of national attention soon. CLAY AIKEN won the North Carolina House primary and faces Republican challenger and John Boehner “gal” Renee Ellmer who beat Frank Roche May 6th. Renee Ellmers is a favorite of the House GOP leader. Not surprising. She supports amnesty. Laura Ingraham grills Ellmers in a Breitbart Audio (a must-listen) calling Ellmers’s position on Amnesty as anti-American and the incumbent anti-constituent. Read more on the Clash with Ingraham. Her donor list includes HealthCare and Leadership PACS.

Renee ELLMERS has veiled her support of amnesty during her campaign which is also not surprising given GOPe’s record of denying amnesty for political gain and using talking points which are nothing but language twisters to DECEIVE voters. We know the m.o. It’s standard. PjMedia blog suggests you review:

WHAT? Renee Ellmers Claims She Has ‘Same Immigration Stance as Cruz, Paul, Lee’

Video of Renee Ellmers Berating Anti-Amnesty Constituents

All-In on Amnesty: Renee Ellmers Is Boehner and Cantor’s ‘Tell’

Her measured statements on amnesty mirror the concealed, ambiguous remarks from Boehner and Eric Cantor.

Frank Roche, anti-amnesty candidate lost 59%-41% in the primary.  was underfunded and lacked name recognition nationally – both issues common theme in Tea Party races (with the real tea party candidates, not those who hijack the name conservative to win).  Roche is not happy with the GOPe, the lefty billionaires, left-leaning media, Mark Zuckerberg, think tanks, tea party groups, local Republican clubs and local Republican Party committees He issued a scathing open letter to the GOP establishment” on Thursday (5/8) with the message:

“You’re failing America.”

“In the 36 hours after not winning a hard run election there are many emotions that come and go: disappointment, sadness, guilt, bewilderment, frustration, and anger,” he wrote. “I’m in the frustration and anger stage. … Note to self: U.S. Congress, proper qualifications not required.”

“The establishment, with some help from one of our newest lefty billionaires and the left leaning media, helped reelect the least qualified candidate in the 2nd District Republican primary. They failed the 2nd District and America. They overstepped their pledged boundaries of neutrality during the primary and again demonstrated themselves to be part of the problem. Local petty political gate-keepers assisted their poorly qualified incumbent in ways that require they be removed from their volunteer Chairmanship positions.”

Roche said he raised $50,000 to get his message to voters – roughly what a typical candidate may spend to run for a town council race, not a sprawling congressional district in one of the state’s most expensive media markets. (Through April 16, Roche reported raising roughly $25,000. He entered the campaign in December, 2013.)

In the letter, he acknowledges one of his failings, saying he had “shortcomings on the ground which I take full responsibility for” but didn’t elaborate.

“We tried,” he said in the final line. “I tried. God help us. I thank all those who supported my campaign.” Read more

CLAY AIKEN

Clay Aiken’s opponent Keith Crisco died after a fall at 71.  

Aiken was leading Crisco by fewer than 400 votes.. the 71-year-old Crisco died Monday after suffering injuries in a fall. Aiken’s team said it had received word he’d been planning to concede Tuesday. The singer ended up getting 40.86 percent of the vote, while Crisco received 39.49 percent, according to the North Carolina State Board of Elections, which issued the final tally Tuesday after canvassing the votes from each county within the district and counting provisional and absentee ballots. Aiken suspended all campaign activities on Monday as a result.

In a statement, Aiken, 35, praised his fellow Democrat as “a gentleman, a good and honorable man and an extraordinary public servant. I was honored to know him.”

Sarah Palin has gone on record saying it’s great that people are getting involved in politics but that he does not have the kind of small experience that we need to solve our problems in Washington, in an interview with Insider’s Jim Moret. (Comments paraphrased.)

*********

UPDATE 5/15/2014:  CNN reports a slight Aiken win and describes Renee Ellmers as a tea party favorite.

The primary winner will go on to face incumbent Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers in November’s general election.

Ellmers, a tea party favorite who’s held the seat for two terms, also bested a primary challenger from the right, conservative talk-radio host Frank Roche – and avoided a costly runoff.

Despite Aiken’s wide name recognition, he’ll still fight an uphill battle to unseat the Republican incumbent.

Sarah Palin: Obama Is Hell Bent On Weakening America

By Gary P Jackson

An strong interview that got lost in all of the insanity from the blood libel media after the Arizona shootings. Laura Ingraham interviews Sarah Palin, and as always, Sarah has some strong opinions on key issues.

@0:11 – On those who want to decide the 2012 Republican nominee before a vote is cast: “It’s evidence of their lack of respect for the idea of competition….These elites don’t understand the value of competition.

@1:21 – On McCain’s comments on the TODAY Show that he is looking to compromise with the administration on comprehensive immigration reform: “I don’t think the priority of the Republican Party should be capitulating or compromising when it comes to our principles and those time tested truths that help build our country.

@1:39 – On the GOP’s need to stand firm: “What the American public wants to see right now…is not so much the idea of compromise but drawing some lines in the sand and warning these newly elected and re-elected Congressmen and women and Senators that we expect them to adhere to the will of the people, whether it comes to repealing ObamaCare, whether it comes to not raising the debt ceiling, whether it comes to securing our borders. We want some lines drawn in the sand and we want that done today.

@2:18 – Palin: “We keep giving some of these personalities in the GOP chance after chance to prove to the American public that it’s the GOP’s ideas and values and planks in the platform that should be implemented to provide solutions to America’s challenges. But they’ve blown it too many times and this is to me kind of like their last chance. Draw some lines in the sand.

@2:49 – Palin: “Don’t be talking about capitulation and compromise at this point.

Laura: “That’s your former running mate. That’s the guy who picked you on the ticket talking about comprehensive immigration reform.

Palin: “I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt that he’s got some ideas that ultimately will result in no amnesty and securing our borders. Maybe that’s what he’s got in mind on this. Again, we’ve got to draw some lines in the sand.

@3:38 – Palin: “We’ve got to be able to respect our politicians and trust what it is they are doing. Now, I don’t personally trust what comes out of the White House….[Obama] is hell bent on weakening America and he has told us back in March of 2006 that it weakens America domestically and internationally to raise the debt ceiling. And he said it is a sign of failed leadership to support raising the debt ceiling. And now he is doing exactly that. So, what Obama is doing–purposefully weakening America, because he understood that debt weakens America domestically and internationally–and yet now he supports increasing debt.

Laura: “So his goal is to weaken America?

Palin: “On this issue it has to be, otherwise, what did he mean back in March of 2006 when he said that he understood that increasing debt weakens America?

@4:50 – On running for president: Laura: “Are you making a trip to New Hampshire any time soon? Because Romney is up there and he’s doing pretty well in the polls.

Palin: “We’re scheduling our year’s calendar here in the next couple of days and we’ll see when we get there…Hopefully those voters along with a whole lot of others around America are just hoping for no more status quo.

Sarah Palin Speaks With Laura Ingraham

By Gary P Jackson

A solid talk about the issues we are facing today. Sarah is taking a hard line against the Republican establishment and the chattering class. She’s particularly hard on politicians who keep saying “Trust me, I’ll gt it right this time!” only to have them fail us again. It looks like a Sarah Palin presidential run will very much America against the ineffective Ruling Class. Can’t wait.

Sarah Palin To Help Laura Ingraham’s Charity Auction For The Military

Laura Ingraham, a true patriot who loves our troops and supports them in many ways, is having a charity auction to raise money for two fantastic groups: The Fisher House and the Wounded Warrior Project. Two very worthy causes and two groups that truly make a difference in the lives of injured troops and their families.

From Sarah’s Facebook page:

Laura Ingraham’s Auction to Benefit Our Military

It’s a privilege to participate in the auction Laura Ingraham is organizing to help our men and women in uniform. Laura asked if I would donate the jacket I wore on the cover of my book, “Going Rogue.” I can’t think of a better cause, and it’s especially fitting because the book is dedicated to patriots and in particular to our women and men in uniform.

All the proceeds from the auction go to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and The Fisher House (please click the links for more information about these wonderful organizations).

Our military and their families sacrifice so much to protect us. That sacrifice was so evident at our visit to the Walter Reed Hospital on Sunday. It was deeply moving and inspirational to hear our recovering troops’ stories and to see their patriotism reflected so vividly in their willingness to serve a cause greater than themselves.

Please join Laura in helping these brave and selfless Americans and their families. You can participate in the auction by visiting Laura’s website here.

– Sarah Palin

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

We are truly blessed with the very best fighting forces in the world. These brave men and women voluntarily put their lives on the line for us every single day. They ask for nothing in return, but they are owed a huge debt by a grateful nation. Please help support these warriors who have given so much but ask so little.
