Obama Loses in Florida. Judge Refuses to Halt Voter-Roll Purge

by lewwaters

Florida never seems to be short when it comes to controversy, as we saw in 2000 and since, especially of late as Governor Rick Scott called for close inspection of the polls of voters in Florida and the purging of those not legally entitled to vote. With scant mistakes so far, dead people, pets, felons, illegal aliens and more have been removed.

Seeing the possibility of many now Democrat voters being caught up in Florida wanting only legally entitled voters to vote, the Obama Administration strongly opposed such action, having the ‘Justice’ Department under Eric Holder file suit in Federal Court to halt the action.

The Orlando Sentinel tells that U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle “rejected a request from the Obama administration to put an immediate stop to the state’s non-citizen voter purge program.”

The Sentinel tells us further, “The Justice Department had argued that the state’s attempt to remove 2,600 non-citizens from the voter rolls violated a federal law that prohibits the systemic removal of voters within 90 days before an election. Department attorneys also said that voters’ rights were violated because many U.S. citizens had received letters questioning their citizenship and threatening to remove them from the voting rolls.”

Hinkle did chastise Florida, though, stating, “Determining citizenship is not as easy as the state would have it. Questioning someone’s citizenship isn’t as trivial as the state would have it.”

Just How Broken is Olympia?

by lewwaters

Anybody who has paid any attention at all to the news in Washington State knows that Olympia just isn’t working for quite some time. Doesn’t matter what party you are in or support, all we need do is pick just about any newspaper in the state to see how dysfunctional the Washington State legislature has gotten in the past decade or so.

Partisan pundits from either major party will always point fingers at the other, absolving themselves of any blame, which is a large part of the problem. We saw it just this last session and special sessions that were supposed to overcome a $1.5 Billion budget gap, but agenda driven legislators, with the full blessing of the governor, had more important matters to tend to.

We saw it late in the close of the regular session, which prompted 3 Democrats to cross the aisle and join forces with Republicans, drawing the ire of their party leaders, to take the floor and bring a bipartisan budget deal to the floor. House Democrats rejected the bipartisan budget bill and the mess continued.

One of those Democrats, Senator Jim Kastama from the 25th Legislative District recently made a speech at the Washington Research Council board meeting Tuesday, held at the Washington Athletic Club where he pulled back the curtain and let us know just how dysfunctional our legislature has gotten.

From the transcript of that speech, supplied by Eric Smith of the Washington State Wire, we see what went on in Olympia did not make it to the news services and how Democrat Party Leaders castigated Sen. Kastama, one going so far as to tell him “he had cooked his own goose when he cast his vote this year with Republicans” and another one informed him that “the only job he’d be likely to get was as a gas-station attendant” while his “session aide tearfully begged him to change his vote.”

So, Now We Can Be Together, Huh?

by lewwaters

Half of America failed last night as they selected a totally inexperienced and unqualified new president. The Socialist Demokratic Politburo is now in complete charge of our beloved country, free to ram their Socialism down our throats.

Offers of freebies stolen from others and handed out reigned supreme as voters fell for the old ‘Robin Hood’ ploy, not realizing or just ignoring that is all just a myth.

Clark County Demokrats, you did your part in selecting offers of free handouts that you will end up paying dearly for in the years ahead. Higher taxes, in spite of promises, are coming, bank on it. Fee increases, tolls, you name it, they are headed your way too as the Politburo rams through their Socialist agenda.

You can thank the Columbian for their part in presenting lopsided ‘reports’ on candidates and your own laziness in not actually checking out candidates that would have fought for you, not Gregoire’s ‘more of the same’ failed leadership and taking care of Puget Sound first and foremost.

Republicans, you have your share of blame too. As Socialist Demokrats went for our jugulars with lies, innuendoes and deceit, you had no stomach to fight back, choosing to “take the high road” to oblivion, at our cost. They fight, we sit back and pray and wait for divine intervention.

Sunday School taught me that ‘God helps those that help themselves.’ Even Jesus told the Disciples to carry arms when traveling for defense.

If you want America back where it became great and not another Socialist third world nation, you better be prepared to fight. You better offer candidates with backbone who will fight fire with fire. Mr. Nice-guy doesn’t win elections; the Socialist Demokratik Politburo proved that last night.

I watched at the Hilton last evening as disappointment was replaced by merriment to party and enjoy your selves, instead of assessing why we continue to lose to Socialists whose empty promises litter our history.

Next door, the Socialist Demokrats were ecstatic at their take over, without a clue of what to do, especially in our presidential race.

Most appalling was there “in your face” sign outside the Ballroom door reading, “Tonight America Came Together.” Does it escape all that for 8 years they wanted NO Togetherness with us? Does it escape you that the only time they speak of being “Together” is when they rule?

Overtures of togetherness from our president were rejected for 8 years, replaced by denigration, demonization and outright lies. And now that they have selected the unqualified and totally inexperienced ‘Homey The President’ to top world power, after going out of their way to mock and destroy private citizens and a decent lady, they claim “Togetherness?”

Sorry, but we are not “Together” and will not be. When the Socialist Demokratik Politburo preaches “Togetherness” it only means “submission” to their agenda of hate and intolerance of the very values that made us a Great Nation.

To you Socialist Demokrats, you can say this is sour grapes, or any other derogatory words you can think of, it’s all you know anyways. But you have only succeeded in dividing America further and this Viet Nam Veteran is mad as hell and not taking it any more.

I lost 13 buddies I personally knew in that war fighting the very ruling class you embrace and owe it to them and the other 58,000 who made the ultimate sacrifice to oppose you to my last breath.

If the GOP rejects this, so be it. I am a conservative long before I am a Republican. I will continue on my own, alone, if need be, but I will not sit idly by and watch as my beloved country falls to communism at your hands.

You set the tone 8 years ago and maintained it throughout the last 8 years. Your chickens are coming home to roost now!

Don’t bother extending you hand to me. When we extended our hands over the last 8 years, you rejected the overtures and slapped us for the effort. I will not submit to your Socialism.

As Sir Winston Churchill said long ago, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

You chose expected freebies, America. What you will receive is:

obama-flips-off-america

Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing, great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. – Sir Winston Churchill
