The Tea Party Must Defeat the One-Party Ruling Class in 2012

Joe Miller,

If you’re like me, you’re terribly concerned about the direction of our nation. Whether it’s impending national bankruptcy, eroding personal liberties, or the incessant attacks against the traditional family, the bedrock of civilization, it seems everything is falling apart.

So what do we do? We throw everything aside and immerse our efforts and finances into democratic change. We identify elected leaders that are co-conspirators in our national destruction and target them for defeat. We work day and night, shoulder-to-shoulder with other grassroots activists to upend the establishment with constitutional conservatives.

Sometimes, these Tea Party insurgencies elect patriots to office. Other times, the reform movement loses a race but manages, in the process, to drive the dark, bipartisan forces controlling much of our political processes into the light. When that happens, we have the exceptional opportunity to discover the answer to why the U.S. political system, no matter the party controlling the White House or Congress, continues to move us in the same direction.

A great example is….

Joe Miller Focused on Taking Down Romney in 2012

Alex Pappas, The Daily Caller

Tea Party hero Joe Miller says he’s focused on making sure Mitt Romney doesn’t become president.

In an interview with The Daily Caller, Miller, who unsuccessfully ran for the U.S. Senate in Alaska in 2010, said his Western Representation PAC hopes to spend at least $500,000 campaigning against Romney, a Republican candidate, in early primary states like New Hampshire.

“It’s about getting the government back to its fundamentals, limiting government and showing that Romney is not embracing that approach,” Miller said of his PAC’s “Stop Romney” campaign.

Miller, who chairs the Western Representation PAC, said he’s not supporting any other GOP candidate.

Miller said Romney has a “big government approach.” The PAC will publicize the former Massachusetts governor’s history of flip-flopping, or as Miller said, “where Romney use to be and where he claims to be today.”

“Unless you have the perspective of government that puts the constitution first, that means getting back to the enumerated powers, you have no business running for president and we’re not going to support you and in fact, we’re going to stop you,” Miller said.

Election Fraud is Ruining America (And How to Fix It)

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown,

One of the most surreal experiences of our lives was watching an unelected bureaucrat pick and choose what ballots she wanted to count in the closely contested election featuring pseudo-Republican Lisa Murkowski and Tea Party Favorite Republican Joe Miller in Alaska. Having spent decades watching ballots be counted in hundreds of elections, and never once have we seen a situation with such outrageous manipulation of the vote.

But I guess we weren’t in Colorado. Hot off the presses is a report that documents 5,000 non-citizens voting in that states highly contested elections. According to a report in The Hill, the “Secretary of State Scott Gessler, a Republican, told the panel that his department’s study identified nearly 12,000 people who were not citizens but were still registered to vote in Colorado…Of those non-citizen registered voters, nearly 5,000 took part in the 2010 general election in which Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet narrowly defeated Republican John Buck. Colorado conducted the study by comparing the state’s voter registration database with driver’s license records.”

In state after state corruption is beginning to undermine the credibility of the fairness of elections. We all remember the election officials in Florida holding up ballots looking for hanging chads in the Presidential race between Al Gore and George W. Bush. The presidential race in 2000 was sadly decided in the Supreme Court, and it undermined the credibility of President Bush until his more convincing re-election victory in 2004. To his day, we still see bumper stickers that say re-elect Gore in 2008.

In Washington state, Dino Rossi lost a governor’s race in 2004 only after the ballots were counted three times. Every new count featured the liberal King County election officials discovering votes that were not counted the first time. These votes just appeared from nowhere weeks after the election was over.

All citizens left, right, center, Republican, Green, Democrat, and Libertarian should be able to have confidence in the integrity of the voting process. Without faith in the process, the illegitimate election results undermine the ability to govern.

Let us suggest some reforms….

The Top Stories We Broke in 2010

Ben Johnson,

As we end 2010 and begin a new year, the media take a look back at the year gone by. We too wish to look back at all the stories this website has broken in the few months of our existence. Some have been ignored, others have been reported nationally — without credit to those of us who discovered them. Nonetheless, we are happy the information has spread and look forward to leading the charge in 2011. We want to take this time to celebrate all we have accomplished in so little time by highlighting a baker’s dozen of stories that we broke. Counting down our stories, from least to greatest.

13. Obama Apologizes to Guatemala for a Guatemalan Government Experiment (story). On October 1, Barack Obama phoned Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom with a heavy heart. He learned that from 1946-48, the U.S. Public Health Service had tested the effectiveness of penicillin in treating syphilis by infecting Guatemalan prisoners and soldiers with the disease, then treating them. Guatemalan politicians howled for “compensation,” and Obama promised “a thorough investigation.” The experiments — discovered by Susan Reverby of Wellesley College and revealed in the January issue of the Journal of Policy History — were inhumane. However, Reverby noted one fact Obama overlooked: The Guatemalan government approved of the experiments at the time. The story shows Obama’s focus on what he describes as America’s “tragic history” and absurd reflex to apologize for American behavior. In this case, the courageous leader of the free world apologized to the president of a third world backwater for experiments both their governments approved and conducted before either one of them was alive.

12. Oklahoma’s Muslim Law Ban Struck Down by Clinton Diversity Pick (story). On election day 2010, more than 70 percent of Oklahoma voters approved State Question 755, which forbids state courts from considering Islamic religious law, Shari’a, in pending court cases. However, federal judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange of the 10th Circuit Court issued a series of injunctions against the measure. In her tangled view, a law prohibiting judges from deciding cases based on religious law constituted an attack on the First Amendment. As we alone exposed, Miles-LaGrange, whom Bill Clinton appointed in 1994 as “first African-American federal judge in the six states that make up the 10th Circuit,” is a thoroughgoing mediocrity who has spent her entire career benefiting from or promoting Affirmative Action. She now sees Muslims as the next victims of an oppressive Christian America. Remember this the next time someone calls Bill Clinton a “moderate.”

11. Left-Winger Confirms Obama’s “Covert Propaganda” Scandal (story). In August, Rep. Darrell Issa’s House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform issued a 36-page report accusing Barack Obama of engaging in “covert propaganda” activities that were “inappropriate and sometimes unlawful.” The White House, Issa wrote, would enlist third parties to promote its talking points without mentioning its connection to Obama, a move he alleges is illegal (and thus impeachable). Within days, far-Left activist Sally Kohn confirmed another facet of this story on The Huffington Post. I reported the administration invited Kohn to a May 2009 “cultural policy summit” with five dozen other radical activists and extremists. Kohn wrote this was the beginning of the Obama administration’s weekly “Common Purpose” meetings, where “the White House dictated its agenda and appealed to the professional left for back-up.” Kohn, a onetime Ford Foundation employee, is a self-described “Jewish lesbian” who once wrote a DailyKos diary entry entitled, “Why I Have a Little Crush on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.” Her allegations that the president used them in a covert propaganda campaign are worthy of inclusion in an investigation of this scandal. To date, no one else has noticed them.

10. Obama’s Stimulus Put Microchips in Your Trash (story). Nearly half-a-million dollars of the stimulus bill went to….

Riders on the Storm

Doug Ramsey,

Dave Cuddy, the Tea Party candidate of 1996

For those familiar with Alaskan politics it might look like 1996 all over again. For those who don’t recall, it’s an interesting look into a state political apparatus that is completely controlled by establishment incumbents and the regional media in a pact to assure that Alaska, the final American frontier, will remain a surrogate dependent the federal dole.

This week, Joe Miller and his campaign organization had a very tough decision. How far do you go? How hard do you push? What is the public’s tolerance for truth and the letter of the law? These questions seem to have obvious answers until you dig deeper – until you peek behind the curtain into the incumbent/media complex that has denied Alaska her true voice for decades.

Fourteen years ago David Cuddy staged a primary challenge against the late Senator Ted Stevens for the Republican nomination. Insiders in his campaign saw the raw political muscle of Alaskan incumbent politics – tactics that have once again resurfaced during the nationally observed contest between Joe Miller and Lisa Murkowski….
