~ANYONE who knows me knows I have ‘always’ been a Champion of Tom Tancredo. He was ‘my’ Superhero on the immigration issue, when know one else hardly in the Bush era wanted Shamnesty. He always answered my correspondence & when I told him my brother lived in his district & I would move in with him JUST to vote for him, he always was there on this issue, ALWAYS! ! Jan Brewer & Tom need one another! ~JP

DENVER — A controversial anti-immigration Arizona sheriff, a bounty hunter who stars in his own TV show and a candidate for governor singing a song about falling in love with a Mexican girl in a country bar on a Sunday afternoon.

This is Colorado, and candidate Tom Tancredo’s idea of a fundraising good time.

Several hundred red-white-and-blue-clad supporters paid $35 and up Sunday as Tancredo hosted Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Dog the Bounty Hunter (aka Duane Chapman) and others at Denver’s Grizzly Rose, despite competition from home games for the Colorado Rockies and the Denver Broncos.

Tancredo is running a distant second in Colorado’s three-way race for governor, ( 4 days ago- Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo at 29 % ) behind Democratic candidate John Hickenlooper, who is the mayor of Denver, but ahead of Republican Dan Maes. A former GOP congressman and presidential candidate, Tancredo jumped into the race in July, running on the American Constitution Party ticket out of dissatisfaction with the two GOP primary candidates.

(Sadly!) Tancredo is running a distant second in Colorado’s three-way race for governor, behind Democratic candidate John Hickenlooper, who is the mayor of Denver, but ahead of Republican Dan Maes. A former GOP congressman and presidential candidate, Tancredo jumped into the race in July, running on the American Constitution Party ticket out of dissatisfaction with the two GOP primary candidates.

~See, this man is EXACTLY who he shows publicly . A man of Honor & Truth!


Immigration is Tancredo’s issue, it’s Arpaio’s issue, and it was the rousing issue for Sunday’s crowd of mostly white, conservative voters. The economy barely rated mention, despite a Denver Post poll indicating it’s the top concern for 58 percent of Coloradans, followed by the federal deficit for 13 percent and immigration for 10 percent.

“Forget the party labels, just look at the person, vote for the person,” Arpaio told the cheering crowd. Later, he added, “Sometimes politicians have to worry about the Hispanic vote. I don’t worry about it. Or you have to worry about the big employers because they can’t get cheap labor. I don’t worry about it.”

Arizona is known for a tough new law on illegal immigrants that’s being challenged by the federal government. Colorado, meanwhile, enacted what were then considered the nation’s toughest state laws on immigration in 2006, restricting welfare benefits and requiring employers to confirm workers’ immigration status. A 2009 audit of the Colorado law found increased reporting of arrests of illegal immigrants to federal immigration enforcement, but didn’t necessarily lead to increased deportation proceedings.

~ The only time Megyn pissed me off…

A Syracuse University analysis indicates that deportation of illegal immigrants has risen considerably under President Barack Obama when compared to the George W. Bush administration’s record.

Still, Arpaio regaled the crowd with tales of his tent cities for county jail inmates, the pink underwear he makes them wear and his all-women chain gangs. He also proudly noted his clashes with the federal government over enforcement of illegal immigration laws.


“I’m the poster boy, I’m pretty proud of being that, for the White House and the Justice Department,” Arpaio said before urging the crowd, “Make sure you support Tom. Vote for him! Vote, vote, vote, vote!”

While this wasn’t Arpaio’s first trip outside Arizona to campaign for another candidate, Chapman said Tancredo was the first candidate he had agreed to support.

“Law enforcement loves him,” Chapman said. “Tom Tancredo has a plan to make money on crime as crime makes money on us.”

Chapman’s biker leathers had to be appreciated by many in the crowd who showed up on Harley Davidsons, including some bearing “Riders Against Illegal Aliens” logos on their vests.

Tancredo took off his leather biker vest to reveal a Dog the Bounty Hunter T-shirt. And he noted that he managed to get out of the house without wearing a helmet, just a week after an accident that left him with minor scrapes and bruises.

“We have a tough road ahead of us, there’s no two ways about it, but I believe in all my heart that it’s the right thing we’re doing,” the candidate told the crowd, later calling Arpaio “my hero, my mentor.”

And the candidate praised another Arizona law banning ethnic studies in schools.

“No more of this pushing multicultural garbage on our kids,” he said.

Tancredo has raised more than $318,000 in his brief two months in the race — more than Maes’ $255,000, but considerably less than Hickenlooper’s almost $3 million. The crunch for cash was plenty evident Sunday, from an auction of wine with Tancredo labels to “money-bomb” boxes for donations. Hickenlooper, however, went unmentioned, although Arpaio once referred to the “mayor of Colorado” (he also asked what the capital of the state was, then mentioned Carson City, the capital of Nevada).

Toward the end of the rally, Tancredo turned on a recording, brought his friends on stage and sang along to “El Paso,” a cowboy classic in which the protagonist falls in love with a Mexican woman, shoots and kills the Mexican man who tries to woo her, then dies in her arms after being shot by the law.

~The way I see it. These three men best represent us. Sheriff Joe the poster child for cracking the whip on illegal immigration. Dog is a very compassionate man who hunts all types of illegals in Hawaii & hates locking up a fly. And Tom, the main champion against his own party while in congress on immigration. One of the few critters who had an A+ rating report card. I feel if Minnesota could elect an Independent Jessie Ventura for Governor, why not try a switch & elect a American Constitution Party ticket? Come on Colorado, do it RIGHT! ~JP

do injustice


Obama administration officials repeatedly denied that politics had anything to do with its Justice Department’s (DOJ) decision to abandon its lawsuit against the Black Panthers, a “civil rights” group that brandished weapons, blocked a polling station and hurled racial insults at voters on Election Day 2008. In fact, at least one Justice Department official swore to it under oath.

But according to evidence uncovered by Judicial Watch this week, this is yet another Obama administration falsehood.

On September 21, we released a draft Vaughn index prepared by the DOJ that shows that the two top political appointees at the DOJ were involved in the decision to dismiss the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense (NBPP).

The index, which we acquired pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, describes documents the government is withholding from the public. Among those documents are internal DOJ emails regarding the Black Panther case between the highest political appointees inside the DOJ, including former Deputy Attorney General David Ogden and the Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli, the second and third ranking officials at the DOJ.

Here’s one example: A May 10, 2009, email from Associate Attorney General Perrelli to Deputy Associate Attorney General and former Democratic election lawyer Sam Hirsh. “Where are we on the Black Panther case?” Perrelli asks in the subject header. The email also includes Deputy Attorney General Ogden’s “current thoughts on the case.”


Does this sound like Perrelli and Ogden were on the outside looking in at the Black Panther decision? Not a chance. But wait, there’s more.

Another email, from former Acting Assistant Attorney General Loretta King, dated May 12, 2009, was distributed to Attorney General Eric Holder through Odgen and Perrelli. Entitled, “Weekly Report for the Week ending May 8, 2009,” the email “Identifies matters deemed significant and highlights issues for the senior offices, including an update on a planned course of action in the NBPP (New Black Panther Party) litigation.”

Now, as I mentioned, the evidence uncovered by Judicial Watch directly contradicts the sworn testimony of a top Obama White House official.

Attorney General Thomas Perez testified before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on May 14, 2010. The Commission, an independent, bipartisan unit of the federal government charged with investigating and reporting on civil rights issues, initiated a probe of the DOJ’s decision to drop its lawsuit. During the hearing, Perez was asked directly regarding the involvement of political leaders in the decision to dismiss the Black Panther case. And here’s the exchange:


COMMISSIONER KIRSANOW: Was there any political leadership involved in the decision not to pursue this particular case any further than it was?

ASST. ATTY. GEN. PEREZ: No. The decisions were made by Loretta King in consultation with Steve Rosenbaum, who is the Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General.

Perez also suggested that the dispute was merely “a case of career people disagreeing with career people.”

Well now we know this is false. And we have the evidence to prove it.


Overall, the index describes 122 documents (totaling at least 611 pages) that the Obama DOJ is withholding from the public in their entirety. A federal court hearing in the matter is scheduled on October 5, 2010, in Washington, DC, before U.S. District Court Judge Reggie B. Walton. We plan to ask the Court to require the Obama DOJ to release these (and other) secret documents about this scandal and its cover-up.

But we’re not stopping there.


In a separate but related matter, Judicial Watch also filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit this week against the DOJ to obtain records related to meetings between Perrelli and White House officials regarding the Black Panther decision.


Here’s what we’re after: “Any and all records of Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli concerning meetings with the White House on the Justice Department’s voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party. The time frame for this request is from January 20, 2009, to June 15, 2009.”

~Denial & Destroying Records predictable

On March 26, 2010, the DOJ informed Judicial Watch that it had conducted a search for documents, and found “no records responsive to [JW’s] request.”

But we found this extremely difficult to believe. After all, a number of press outlets have reported at least nine meetings between Perrelli and White House officials between March 25 and May 27, 2009, regarding the Black Panther case. So we got tired of the run-around and sued.

Why should anyone believe the DOJ’s story regarding Perrelli’s meetings? We now know DOJ officials falsely stated that no political appointees were involved in the Black Panther decision. We know the DOJ continues to withhold hundreds of pages of records that could shed light on this scandal. And we know multiple press reports came to the same conclusion: Perrelli met with the White House specifically on the Black Panther matter. And the DOJ cannot find a single record related to these meetings?

Our good work has garnered tremendous attention, including coverage in The Washington Examiner, Investors Business Daily, and The Washington Times (The Times editorial is entitled, “Black Panther case roars back to life.”) I’m also scheduled to appear on Fox News this weekend. (~NOTE: This is the FOX video at top of this page ~JP) (I’ll send you details in a separate email.)

We’ve done three news releases on this issue alone this week so developments are breaking fast. For instance, I just returned from attending a hearing of U.S. Commission on Civil Rights during which there was much explosive discussion and testimony regarding not only our work but generally corrupt policies at the Obama/Holder DOJ. I’ll have more for you on that next week.

Stay tuned…


~So, we expect NO LESS going down for this than:

–Perrelli
–Perez
–King

In a perfect world, Holder & Obama should both be ejected for this! I JUST pray they don’t make it disappear as they did the hundreds of pages of records that could shed light on this scandal. I would also suggest J. Christian Adams & “The People” sue the DOJ when they are once & for all found guilty on these charges!

Last week, the Seattle Weekly announced that Molly Norris, its editorial cartoonist, had “gone ghost.” Put another way, she went into hiding. The FBI told her she had to because otherwise it couldn’t protect her against death threats from Muslims she’d angered. Earlier this year, Norris started “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” to protest radical Muslims’ violently stifling freedom of speech and conscience. Incredibly, her plight has drawn precious little media attention, even though it is infinitely more newsworthy than, say, a fundamentalist preacher in Florida threatening to burn Qurans.

When The Examiner asked the American Society of News Editors for a statement on the issue, none was forthcoming. This despite the fact that the first sentence of ASNE’s Web site describes its mission as supporting “the First Amendment at home and free speech around the world.” We got a similar response from the Society of Professional Journalists, despite its dedication “to the perpetuation of the free press as the cornerstone of our nation and liberty.”


Freedom of speech and press are in deep trouble when the American government thinks the best it can do to protect a journalist from death threats is to counsel her to go into hiding, and when the elite voices of American journalism can’t be bothered to say anything in her defense. But it’s actually worse than that. The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof thinks Muslims are owed an apology. “I hereby apologize to Muslims for the wave of bigotry and simple nuttiness that has lately been directed at you,” he wrote Sunday. “The venom on the airwaves, equating Muslims with terrorists, should embarrass us more than you.”

Instead of telling the rest of us that we’re all bigots, shouldn’t Kristof and the rest of the journalism profession be outraged by what has happened to Molly Norris? And shouldn’t they be angered that her government believes it cannot protect her? Imagine what they would be saying if white-hooded members of the Ku Klux Klan were threatening to kill Norris in Selma, Ala., instead of radical Muslims in Seattle. Would the FBI tell Norris she had to stop being a journalist and go into hiding? And would ASNE and SPJ look the other way as the First Amendment and freedom of the press were symbolically turned to ashes by flaming white crosses?

The reality is that the FBI fought the KKK at every turn, including when it threatened brave Southern newspaper editors who stood up against racism and violence. And from the start, journalists were prominent figures in the civil rights movement, courageously reporting the truth about the crushing stranglehold of segregation on life and liberty across the old South, often at risk of their very lives. It’s time the present generation of American journalists found the same brand of courage many of their fathers showed in the 1960s.

Sept. 14: U.S. Capt. Dan Luckett, 27, of Norcross, Ga., takes a seat at Combat Outpost Ashoqeh in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province.

When a bomb exploded under Dan Luckett’s Army Humvee in Iraq two years ago — blowing off one of his legs and part of his foot — the first thing he thought was: “That’s it. You’re done. No more Army for you.”

But two years later, the 27-year-old Norcross, Georgia, native is back on duty — a double-amputee fighting on the front lines of America’s Afghan surge in one of the most dangerous parts of this volatile country.

Luckett’s remarkable recovery can be attributed in part to dogged self-determination. But technological advances have been crucial: Artificial limbs today are so effective, some war-wounded like Luckett are not only able to do intensive sports like snow skiing, they can return to active duty as fully operational soldiers. The Pentagon says 41 American amputee veterans are now serving in combat zones worldwide.

Luckett was a young platoon leader on his first tour in Iraq when an explosively formed penetrator — a bomb that hurls an armor-piercing lump of molten copper — ripped through his vehicle on a Baghdad street on Mother’s Day 2008.

His Humvee cabin instantly filled with heavy gray smoke and the smell of burning diesel and molten metal. Luckett felt an excruciating pain and a “liquid” — his blood — pouring out of his legs. He looked down and saw a shocking sight: his own left foot sheared off above the ankle and his right boot a bloody mangle of flesh and dust.

Still conscious, he took deep breaths and made a deliberate effort to calm down.

A voice rang out over the radio — his squad leader checking in.

“1-6, is everybody all right?” the soldier asked, referring to Luckett’s call-sign.

“Negative,” Luckett responded. “My feet are gone.”

He was evacuated by helicopter to a Baghdad emergency room, flown to Germany, and six days after the blast, he was back in the U.S.

As his plane touched down at Andrew’s Air Force Base, he made a determined decision. He was going to rejoin the 101st Airborne Division any way he could.

For the first month at Washington’s Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Luckett was bound to a wheelchair. He hated the dependence that came with it. He hated the way people changed their voice when they spoke to him — soft and sympathetic.

He wondered: how long is THIS going to last? Will I be dependent on others for the rest of my life?

At night, he dreamed of walking on two legs.

When he woke, only the stump of his left leg was there, painfully tender and swollen.

His family wanted to know, is this going to be the same Dan?

He assured them he was.

Luckett was fortunate in one sense. His wounds had been caused not by shrapnel, but the projectile itself, which made a relatively clean cut. That meant no complications — no joint or nerve damage or bone fractures.

His right foot was sheered across his metatarsals, the five long bones before the toes. Doctors fitted it with a removable carbon fiber plate that runs under the foot and fills the space where toes should be with hardened foam.

His left leg was a far bigger challenge.

In early July, Luckett strapped into a harness, leaned on a set of parallel bars, and tried out his first prosthetic leg.

It felt awkward, but he was able to balance and walk.

The next day, Luckett tried the leg on crutches — and tried to walk out the door.

“They were like, ‘You gotta’ give the leg back,’” Luckett said of his therapists. After a brief argument, they grudgingly gave in. “They said, ‘If you’re gonna be that hard-headed about it, do it smart, don’t wear it all the time.’”

By February 2009, he had progressed so far, he could run a mile in eight minutes.

He rejoined his unit at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and told his battalion commander he wanted to return to duty “only if I could be an asset, not a liability,” he recalled.

Months later, he passed a physical fitness test to attain the Expert Infantryman’s Badge. It required running 12 miles (19 kilometers) in under three hours with a 35-pound (16-kilogram) backpack. It was a crucial moment, Luckett said, “because I knew if I can get this badge, then there’s nothing they can say that I’m not capable of doing.”

The Army agreed, and promoted him to captain.

In May, he deployed to Afghanistan.

On his first patrol, wearing 50 pounds (23 kilograms) of gear and body armor, Luckett slipped and fell down. But when he looked around, everybody else was falling, too.

The region around his outpost at Ashoqeh, just west of the provincial capital of Kandahar in southern Afghanistan, is surrounded by irrigation trenches and 4-foot (1.2-meter) high mud walls that grapes grow over. Troops must traverse the treacherous terrain to avoid bombs on footpaths.

Capt. Brant Auge, Luckett’s 30-year-old company commander, said Luckett was as capable as every soldier in his company, and treated no different.

“He’s a soldier who just happens to be missing a leg,” said Auge, who is from Ocean Springs, Mississippi. “He tries to play it down as much as possible, he doesn’t like to bring a lot of attention to it.”

On one of those early patrols, Luckett took to a knee and his pants leg rode up a little bit, revealing the prosthetic limb to a shocked group of Afghan soldiers nearby, Auge said. One gave him the nickname, the “One-legged Warrior of Ashoqeh.”

Beside his cramped bunk-bed, the 185-pound (84-kilogram), 5-foot-11 (1.80-meter) Luckett keeps prosthetic legs for different tasks, each with a carbon fiber socket that attaches to his thigh.

One is fitted with a tennis shoe for running, another a boot. One, made of aluminum so it won’t rust, has a waterproof black Croc for showering. The most important leg though, he saves for patrols. It is made with a high-tech axle that allows him to move smoothly over uneven terrain. His squad leader painted its toenails purple.

Luckett’s prothesis is often a source of good humor — most often generated by Luckett himself.

Some joke of his advantage of having little to lose if he steps on a mine. “That’s always a big one,” he said, “but the reality is, you don’t want to step on an IED (bomb) because you enjoy living and you want stay living. The fear is no different than any other soldier.”

Before heading to Afghanistan, Auge said Luckett had an as yet untried “master plan” to upset the insurgents.

Troops would have Luckett step on a mine and blow his fake leg off. He’d then look up at the trigger man while whipping a replacement leg over his shoulder and slipping it on.

“Then he would flip them off,” Auge said, “and keep on walking.”

The Department of Defense paid $5 per book to burn the 9,500 copies of “Operation Dark Heart,” Army Reserve Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer’s memoir about going undercover in Afghanistan that the Pentagon claims revealed too many national security secrets.

A source confirmed to Fox News that while the Defense Department is making significant budget cuts, it spent in excess of $47,000 in taxpayer money to destroy the book that had earlier been cleared by the U.S. Army.

The Defense Intelligence Agency objected to the book’s publication, spurring a review that resulted in its being blocked over recollections in the book about the controversial pre-Sept. 11, 2001, data mining project called “Able Danger.”

Did you know that the Tea Party-backed Republican candidate for US Congress in Illinois’ 27th congressional district (which is ironic being that ILL. has but ’26′ districts) attends a church where they worship transgender goats? Additionally, he once allowed a parking meter to expire without surrendering himself to be fined. A local merchant, who once saw him on vacation in Zanzibar, said she believes he has a Barbie doll collection. There have even been reports that he once shared a Kit-Kat bar with Charles Manson at a Grateful Dead concert.


There isn’t an iota of truth to the above statement. It is all false. There isn’t even a 27th congressional district in Illinois. But, I can just about guarantee you that someone reading this in any one of the plethora of mainstream media newsrooms has taken to the Internet to research “the facts” of this stunning breaking news report.

If I had opened this article by saying, the Tea Party-backed Republican candidate in Delaware’s US Senate race has been campaigning on a platform that includes limiting the reach of government into your personal lives, reforming the tax code, defunding and repealing the newly enacted healthcare insurance reform bill and vowing to oppose any piece of legislation that comes before her that isn’t constitutionally sound, do you think the same “journalists” would have even finished reading the paragraph? If you said no, give yourself a gold star.


The fact of the matter is this: outing a Republican, especially a Tea Party-endorsed Republican – as a Barbie doll collecting transgender goat worshipper who eats candy with mass murderers sells more papers than reporting on that candidate’s positions on the issues. It also furthers the mainstream media’s not so clandestine agenda (at least not anymore) of recruiting more intellectual lemmings to bow to the church of Progressivism, of which, it could be said, today’s “journalists” serve as the mind-raping clergy.

In today’s mainstream media newsrooms the “bright shiny thing,” the politics of distraction, reigns supreme. The age old adage of “if it bleeds, it leads” has morphed into “if it shines, it headlines,” especially where politics is concerned. The mainstream media has become thoroughly useless to the American voter, offering information that focuses on personal quirks and foibles, rather than the candidates’ positions and, if applicable, voting records on issues important to the American electorate. Perhaps this is why so many Americans are turning away from traditional media outlets for their information, political or otherwise.

Since even before the 2000 election – and poll after poll, both scientific and not, bears this out – the American public has become intensely disenchanted with not only the status quo of our political class but with the grotesquely transparent engagement in political activism by our “free press.” Our disenchantment with the political class gave birth to the Tea Party, essentially the reawakening of the American citizen’s constitutional right and duty to governmental oversight. And our disenchantment with the mainstream media has given way to the new media and a completely different way of gathering facts and information. These two “saving graces” couldn’t have emerged at a more critical time in our country’s history.


Where our elected class has become just that – a gaggle of narcissistic elitists more concerned with retaining office, power and the potency of their respective political parties than with serving the best interests of their individual constituencies – the mainstream media has become just as dangerous as the propaganda machines of Brezhnev’s Soviet Union, Mao’s Communist China or Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

How else can we explain the intensely disingenuous reports of Christine O’Donnell practicing witchcraft? Or the Tea Party being a racist organization? Or how the recently passed healthcare insurance reform bill would lower premiums? Or that the trillion dollar stimulus worked, even as we see home foreclosures and repossessions hitting all-time highs? Or that the southern US border is more secure now than it ever has been, even as more violence spills into our streets from Mexico and more bodies are found in the desert, the result of an almost record-breaking number of border-crossing deaths? How else to explain all this false reporting by our mainstream media – and so much more – if not to identify it as either a complete and utter failure of our nation’s journalism schools or a concerted effort at executing propaganda. Common sense mandates that we weigh heavily on the latter, if for no other reason than their reporting always – always – benefits the ideological Left.

The upcoming Mid-Term Election for US Senate in Delaware illustrates, almost to the level of perfection – the propagandizing of the mainstream media. Where the mainstream media is reporting that Ms. O’Donnell – the Tea Party-backed Republican candidate for the Senate seat formerly held by Vice President Joe Biden – used to practice witchcraft, they completely ignored a substantive political issue regarding her opponent, Democrat Chris Coons.

Paraphrased from a Wikipedia entry on Coons:


In 1985 Coons wrote an article for his college newspaper, entitled “Chris Coons: The Making of a Bearded Marxist.” In the article, he describes his transformation from someone with traditionally conservative political leanings to someone so influenced by the teachings acquired in a college anthropology course that it “undermined the accepted value of progress and the cultural superiority of the West.” His study of the Vietnam War led him to form the opinion that “the ideal of America as a ‘beacon of freedom and justice, providing hope for the world’ was not exactly based on reality.” He went on to write that the promises of the “miracles of free enterprise and the boundless opportunities of America” may be untrue.

In contrast, the mainstream media has consistently reported on the personal foibles of Ms. O’Donnell, and disingenuously so. Her dalliance with “witchcraft” turned out to be that she briefly dated someone who professed to having been a Wiccan. Her mortgage scandal turned out to be an economically forced short sale on her property. And her student loan delinquency? Well, let’s put it this way, Ms. O’Donnell paid back her student loan while many have not only defaulted on theirs but admitted to not having any intention of paying them back at all. Even a much ballyhooed claim by Melanie Sloan, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, that Ms. O’Donnell was illegally using campaign funds for personal use is patently bogus as the funds in question were allocated to Ms. O’Donnell as reimbursement for personal funds spent to cover her then in-home campaign office, legal under the law as overseen by the Federal Election Commission.

Lost in all the mainstream media’s personal smearing of Ms. O’Donnell is the fact that she is running on a platform of limited government, limited and equitable taxation, a potent and strong national security policy and adherence to the legislative process as mandated by the United States Constitution.

Also lost in the mainstream media’s focus on the fictional past life of Ms. O’Donnell is the fact that her opponent, Mr. Coons, who serves as the County Executive of New Castle County, Delaware, has openly stated that by his own standard, he led the county from being “fundamentally sound” to the verge of bankruptcy in just four years, lamenting that the county was “18 months from being out of money” and “unable to operate.”

So, as we examine just these few facts about the Delaware Senate race, some legitimate questions come to the forefront: If the mainstream media is truly non-partisan, then why are we not hearing about Ms. O’Donnell’s platform or Mr. Coons’ disastrous tenure in public office? If they truly report the facts in an unbiased manner, then why are we hearing false accusations about Ms. O’Donnell using campaign funds for personal use but not about how Mr. Coons derided our country while professing to be a Marxist? If they really do serve the public interest, as is inferred by their First Amendment constitutional protection, why are we hearing all of this clap-trap about Ms. O’Donnell practicing witchcraft instead of how she overcame financial adversity – adversity that every hardworking American is all too familiar with, thanks to the Obama Administration’s failed economic policies – to win a place as standard-bearer for the Tea Party movement?


No, my friends, the mainstream media is not your friend, they are your enemy. They are the purveyors of political propaganda that benefits the un-American Progressive movement. They have proved this beyond doubt time and time again. To believe anything else is to have been bewitched.
