Help Tammy Duckworth Win!

Help Tammy Duckworth

From U.S. Senator Dick Durbin:

I wrote to you a few months ago to tell you about a remarkable candidate for Congress — Tammy Duckworth.

Joe Walsh continues to be the most outspoken (and controversial) Tea Party member of the House.

He relishes the endless confrontation and works overtime to fuel the bitter rhetoric attacking the Democrats and the President. He is proud of the Tea Party threats to shut down essential government services and destroy America’s reputation for paying its debts. Joe Walsh promises more confrontation; more personal attacks and more stalemate.

Illinois and our Congress deserve better.

Will you help Tammy defeat Walsh by contributing $5 or more to her campaign?

Tammy is a true public servant who knows what it means to serve our country.

She’s also a proven leader who understands what it will take to rebuild our economy and create jobs. Her courage and common sense make her exactly the kind of person we need in Congress.

I can’t think of a better person to replace Joe Walsh than Tammy.

Please join me in supporting her with a contribution of $5 or more.

Thanks for your help,

Ron Paul Calls Rick Santorum “a Fake” (Video)

Welcomed with cheers by the audience, Ron Paul called former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum "a fake."

Personally, I wouldn’t vote for either of these guys, but in the circular firing squad called the Republican race for the White House, this was a laudable moment.

Recall that, while serving as a United States senator, Santorum took $100,000 from Pennsylvania tax payers to home school his children — while living in Virginia.

Never, ever forget that.

Pennsylvanians still have not.

Suit Says Obama Can’t Run In Alaska Because He’s of the “Mulatto” Race

A man from Juneau, Alaska, has filed suit with the state’s Division of Elections to bar President Obama from appearing on that state’s ballot on the basis that the President is a “Mulatto“, and “Before the [purported] ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the race of ‘Negro‘ or ‘Mulatto‘ had no standing to be citizens of the United States under the United States Constitution,” according to the lawsuit.

This is not a joke.

According to a lawsuit filed February 21, 2012 by a Mr. Gordon Warren Epperly, who lists his address as a P.O. Box:

Barack Hussein Obama II, Aka Barack Hussein Obama, Aka Barack H. Obama has the race status of being a “Mulatto.” Barack Obama’s father (Barack Hussein Obama I) was a full blood Negro being born Nyang’oma Kogelo, Nyanza Province, Kenya and raised in the Colony of Kenya. Barack Obama’s mother (Stanley Ann Dunham) was a white Caucasian woman being born in Wichita, Kansas on November 29, 1942 and raised in the state of Washington and in the State of Hawaii.

Therefore:

As stated above, for an Individual to be a Candidate for the Office of President of the United States, the Candidate must meet the qualifications set forth in the United States Constitution and one of those qualifications is that the Candidate shall be a “natural born Citizen” of the United States. As Barack Hussein Obama II is of the “Mulatto” race, his status of citizenship is founded upon the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Before the [purported] ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the race of “Negro” or “Mulatto” had no standing to be citizens of the United States under the United States Constitution.

Rick Santorum Calls For End of Public Education, But He Took $100,000 From Pennsylvanians to Educate His Kids

Here’s the truth about Rick Santorum’s commitment to home schooling:

Between 2001 and 2004, Santorum enrolled five of his children in the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School. Since Pennsylvania law requires school districts to pay for students who live in their district but enroll in cyber schools – and since Santorum claimed his residence was a house in Penn Hills, Allegheny County – the Penn Hills School District paid $100,000 for the Santorum children’s tuition.

But wait a minute – it turns out Rick Santorum, his wife, and their children don’t actually live in Penn Hills…in Allegheny County…or even in Pennsylvania. They actually live in a big house he owns in Leesburg, Virginia.

Yes, that’s correct. And everyone, even conservatives in Pennsylvania, know that to be true.

Rick Santorum took $100,000 from the taxpayers of Pennsylvania to pay for his childrens’ tuition, even while living in Virginia.

And he’s okay with that.

He has not re-payed that.

Nor has he offered to repay that.

Ron Paul’s Strategy To Stuff the GOP Delegate Box (Video)

Doug Wead, Ron Paul campaign senior advisor, talks with Rachel Maddow about how the Paul campaign is taking advantage of the peculiar rules of assigning delegates within the Republican Party.

Is it right to ignore the will of the people?

Nod to Robert Marchini for this one.
