Robert (Rob) Pastore for Congress U.S. Congress – District 01

Scott Brown(R) leads Martha Coakley(D) in MASS race for Kennedy’s Senate Seat – Dems poised to deny him a seat if he wins.

The people over at Public Policy Polling have the latest rundown on the race for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat.

Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley at 48-47. That may not seem like a huge deal, but Massachusetts is a solid Dem state, with the Kennedy’s running that state since forever.

The Massachusetts Senate race is now a toss up.

Buoyed by a huge advantage with independents and relative disinterest from Democratic voters in the state, Republican Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley 48-47.

Here are the major factors leading to this surprising state of affairs:

-As was the case in the Gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia last year, it looks like the electorate in Massachusetts will be considerably more conservative than the one that showed up in 2008. Obama took the state by 26 points then, but those planning to vote next week only report having voted for him by 16.

-Republicans are considerably more enthusiastic about turning out to vote than Democrats are. 66% of GOP voters say they are ‘very excited’ about casting their votes, while only 48% of Democrats express that sentiment- and that’s among the Democrats who are

-Brown has eye popping numbers with independents, sporting a 70/16 favorability rating with them and holding a 63-31 lead in the horse race with Coakley. Health care may be hurting Democratic fortunes with that group, as only 27% of independents express support for Obama’s plan with 59% opposed.

-In a trend that’s going to cause Democrats trouble all year, voters disgusted with both parties are planning to vote for the one out of power. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Brown’s standing is that only 21% of Massachusetts voters have a favorable opinion of Congressional Republicans…but at the same time only 33% view Congressional Democrats favorably. And among voters who have a negative take on both parties, who account for more than 20% of the electorate, Brown leads 74-21.

-Because he’s basically been untouched so far, Brown’s favorability spread is a remarkable +32, at 57/25. For some perspective on how good those numbers are, Bob McDonnell was at a +20 spread with Virginia voters in our final poll there before going on to a 17 point victory.

Scott Brown has the potential to be the vote that stops the healthcare reform legislation in its tracks.  The Democrats, fearing a Brown win are already talking of not seating him until after the healthcare vote has been made.  They want their majority in tact so that the will of the people (over 57% of the population does NOT want this bill to pass) can be ignored and the democratic house and senate can ram this thing through. The democrats want to stall the swearing in of Scott Brown yet to get the Al Franken vote, a dem who would vote like they wanted him to, give them 60 votes they needed, they swore Franken in fast.  Minnesota’s resident clown, Al Franken, powered by Acorn’s fraudulent voter registrations, along with SEIU’s thuggery at the polls, was declared the winner on June 30th, 2009 after Norm Coleman conceded.

As soon as the Senate returned from their July 4th break, the dems immediately swore in Al Franken on July 7th, 2009 and were relieved to have the full majority vote.

Yeah, way to go ‘progressive’ (read socialist) liberal democrats.  Threaten to delay seating a republican winner, yet rush through seating the sexist, misogynist clown Franken from Minnesota who thinks rape is funny. 

Anyone see what I see?  The Democrats are not about the people, they are about the Democrats, power, control and transforming America into G_d knows what.  With the majority of America telling the democrats that we do NOT want their version of healthcare takeover, they proceed to do just the opposite, even to the point of interrupting the swearing in of an elected official who happens to be a republican, so that they can shove this healthcare bill up our collective whatevah.

Pay attention to who is now swarming the area, trying to help Martha Coakley, none other than the democratic thugs called MoveOn who are backed by socialist George Soros who in turn has a history of using his wealth to purchase political seats for the democratic party.

Universal Voter Registration coming in January – Another Stealth Ploy by the Democrats.

The Federal government is poised to takeover voter registration from the States.  If you thought fraud was bad with Acorn, this is the Motor Voter registration nightmare on steroids. In January the Democrats plan to ram this through Congress and they hope you don’t notice.

You can watch a video here where The Wall Street Journal’s John Fund describes what the Democrats are planning to do by proposing universal voter registration.

It is time folks to contact your Senators and Congress critters and voice your opinions. This is another power and control grab by the Feds.

James Simpson at American Thinker writes:

What the Dems Know: Universal Voter Registration

By James Simpson

Many are puzzled that Democrats persist in ramming unpopular and destructive legislation down our collective throats with no apparent concern for their plummeting poll numbers. A widespread belief is that the Democrats are committing political suicide and will be swept from one or both houses of Congress with unprecedented electoral losses next November. But since Democrat politicians rarely do things that will not ultimately benefit themselves, this column asked two weeks ago, “What do they know that we don’t?”

We may have found out. It’s called universal voter registration. The Wall Street Journal’s John Fund described the Democrat plan recently at a David Horowitz Freedom Center forum. Watch the video here.
Fund describes the proposal as follows:
In January, Chuck Schumer and Barney Frank will propose universal voter registration. What is universal voter registration? It means all of the state laws on elections will be overridden by a federal mandate. The feds will tell the states: ’take everyone on every list of welfare that you have, take everyone on every list of unemployed you have, take everyone on every list of property owners, take everyone on every list of driver’s license holders and register them to vote regardless of whether they want to be …’
Fund anticipates that Congress will attempt to ram this legislation through, as with the health care bill. What a surprise! Fund covers the vote issue at greater length in his book, How the Obama Administration Threatens to Undermine Our Elections.
Leftist groups are already arguing that universal voter registration will solve all the problems with our voting system. But the left created most of these problems. The radical leftist Nation Magazine, for example, absolutely loves the idea of universal voter registration. This is the same magazine, however, that advanced Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven’s Manufactured Crisis strategy. The Cloward/Piven strategy was designed to undermine government institutions by overwhelming them with impossible demands for services. Cloward and Piven focused on welfare, housing, and voting as the main targets of this strategy, and the radical group ACORN was specifically created for the purpose of executing it.

Patriots across the nation – Help Scott Brown – he can help defeat Obamamcare

Oh My, Texas Darling has posted, after an absence.

She posts here, a reveling article regarding what is happening in Massachusetts, and how the entire nation can help.

Stop ObamaScare, Join the Scott Brown Brigade.

© 2009 TexasDarlin/TDBlog

Martha Coakley is for ObamaScare.

Scott Brown is against ObamaScare.

In 3 weeks, the smart citizens of Massachusetts will elect one of them to the U.S. Senate.

After a 5-month hiatus, I have temporarily re-activated the blog for one reason: to be part of the nationwide grassroots revolution to elect Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate on Jan. 19. His win would end the 60-seat fillibuster-proof majority currently being abused by Democrats. His vote could kill ObamaScare.

Love this ad:

He’s right, you know. My Democratic party used to stand for responsible government. Why do you suppose nearly one-third of registered voters are now Independent?

Martha big-d Coakley acts as if she’s a shoo-in, but don’t count out Mr. Brown. If there’s one crucial  political lesson from 2009, it’s that Democrats should fear the beast they have awakened. The people are fighting back.

No matter where you live, you can be part of this historic movement. Get involved, and take back your Congress.

Scott Brown could be the first Republican Senator from Massachusetts in nearly 40 years. He could stop ObamaScare. Think about that.

The Fundamental Transformation of America

Found over at Jag Hunter, an article forwarded by Sergeant of Marines James Bancroft. The author of the article is not known at this point in time.

When, in the history of America, have we ever allowed a person who is so unknown to us in so many ways, who refuses to share who he is, where he came from, how he lived his life, yet shows us who he is through proxy of associations, when have we ever allowed that person to hold the office of President?  How deep was this plot to elect an unknown with ties and associations, some of them lifelong, to persons and corporations that we know work to destroy the freedoms of America.

How did this happen?  How do we stop it now and prevent another takeover, another ‘transformation’ in the future?

Here is the article:

Any one of these things, in and of themselves does not really matter. But when you add them up one by one you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that our Obama is determined to make America over into a Marxist/Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this do an internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph.

Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America? Personally, I like happy endings.

If you are an Obama supporter please do not be angry with me because I think your president is a socialist but there are too many facts supporting this.

If you seek the truth you will be richer for it.

Don’t just belittle the opposition.

Search for the truth. I did.

Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Constitutionalists, Libertarians and what have you, we all need to pull together. We all must pull together or watch the demise of a society that we all love and cherish.

If you are a religious person, pray for our nation.

Never before in the history of America have we been confronted with problems so huge that the very existence of our country is in jeopardy.

Don’t rely on most television news and what you read in the newspapers for the truth. Search the Internet.

Yes, there is a lot of bad information, lies and distortions there too but you are smart enough to spot the fallacies.

Newspapers are a dying breed. They are currently seeking a bailout from the government. Do you really think they are about to print the truth?

Obama praises all the television news networks except Fox who he has waged war against. There must be a reason… He does not call them down on any specifics, just a general battle against them. If they lie, he should call them out on it but he doesn’t.

Please find the truth. It will set you free.

Our biggest enemy is not China , Russia , Iran. No, our biggest enemy is a contingent of politicians in Washington DC .

Same Sex Couples Deserve Special Tax Break – Stop Paying for Hetero Marriage – It is Illegal

Lately there has been a push by anti-marriage persons, well, anti- marriage for every one persons, who demand the right to marry is a privileged reserved for a select few. These same people  claim that if same-sex partners are permitted to have their unions recognized, it will cost all of America in the wallet.

I will say that this latest attack on the right to marry is a clever one.  They say that adding same-sex persons to the marriage rolls will increase the cost to the federal bottom line.

This is a very smart move on their part especially when most Americans say that federal spending is out of control. Who wants to add more money to the bottom line by allowing the partnerships between all people be recognized, as opposed to the partnerships of just some (heterosexuals) be recognized.

Here is the news article I refer to and it is titled:  Extending Federal Benefits to Same-Sex Couples Will Cost $898M, CBP Says.

First off, that $898M is over 9 years.  That equates to about 10 million a year. Do a little Internet search and you will find out that those costs for equal benefits for same-sex partners is less than what any number of pro athletes get paid for playing sports.

Hummm,  sports players are paid more than it would cost the feds to provide equal benefits to same-sex partnerships. What?

I say that all persons who are involved with or want to be in same-sex partnerships should be given a  deduction on their Federal taxes each year. This line item deduction should be allowed for all persons who are gay. It would balance the amount they currently pay to support heterosexual marriages. All homosexuals should be given a tax break due to the fact that their taxes currently pay for heterosexual privileges, privileges that they will never be able to receive in the form of marriage perks. Their tax break should be in direct relation to what we all pay to support hetero marriages. I am sure the CBO can compute what it costs the federal government to carry heterosexuals and their marriage perks, divide the number of homosexuals into the dollar figure provided as perks paid to married folks and then give a direct rebate/ tax break  to all homosexuals.

It is not fair or reasonable to demand under penalty of law that same-sex persons/homosexuals pay to support a marriage lifestyle, one that they are forbidden by law in enjoying.  The federal government is demanding that homosexuals pay for the perks provided only to heterosexuals.  Therefor, it is illegal for the federal government to demand at the risk of jail that homosexuals pay for services they will never receive. It is illegal for the government to demand payment for services (marriage perks) from all citizens when they have made it illegal for certain citizens to receive those perks.

Hey Republicans, stand up for the constitution and figure out a way to actually represent ALL people, not just your hetero pals.

On that note, I would like for any person to show me where the constitution gives the feds the power to determine what marriage is, define marriage, let alone force persons who they deny marriage to,  be forced to pay for other’s enjoyment of the privilege.

Think of the money all Americans would save, how the bottom line would be reduced if we eliminated all perks given to heterosexual marriages.  Do Away with marriage benefits across the board. If we really are worried about money and how it relates to marriage, eliminate the perks given to all marriages.  The federal government has no business regulating marriages, any marriage.

My position is that the government has no business in regulating marriage, that marriage should be a church issue.  All marriages, being a church issue, have no standing with any local, regional , state or federal government. Marriage is a ceremony that has no significance outside of the church and marriage gains no legal benefits. Marriage is a ceremony and like many other religious ceremonies, has no bearing on a persons legal status.  All perks given to ‘marriage’ by any government are denied as marriage is a religious act and has no bearing on any legalities in this world.

Any persons who desire to have a partnership recognized will be provided a certificate of partnership, or a certificate of union.  Said certificates have no relation to any church. This will allow ‘marriage’ to be defined by any church as they see fit, and marriage will mean nothing socially in terms of being provided special perks provided by any government. People have their religious  ‘marriage’ and people have their ‘contracts’, which have legal binds. The two are separate, not equal, one is discriminatory and has no legal standing (marriage) and the other is not discriminatory and has legal standing.

The Wilding of Sarah Palin. Women, War, Politics, Rape and the Hatred of Women

Below is a copy of a post by Robin of Berkley which touches on how males use the rape of women as a war tactic.

Women should understand these tactics discussed in the article below, learn them and battle back. Women must stop believing the Democrats will take care of you, stop thinking that NOW and the Feminist Majority represent all women and know that the women involved with those two groups are socialists who are selling America down the river. The democrats have been promising change for women for over 50 years. Why are you waiting on the liberals, who opine for socialism, to give you ‘equality’. It ain’t happenin’. You have been sold a bill of goods, been bamboozled, used, abused and left at the alter. Stop falling for the democratic/liberal tom-trickery.


The Wilding of Sarah Palin by Robin of Berkley

When I was in college, I read a book that changed my life. It was Susan Brownmiller’s tome, Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape, which explained rape as an act of power instead of just lust. What I found particularly chilling was the chapter on war — how rape is used to terrorize a population and destroy the enemy’s spirit.

While edifying, the book magnified the vulnerability I already felt as a female. Fear of rape became a constant dread, and I sought a solution that would help shield me from danger.

The answer: seek safe harbor within the Democratic Party. I even became an activist for feminist causes, including violence against women. Liberalism would protect me from the big, bad conservatives who wished me harm.

Like for most feminists, it was a no-brainer for me to become a Democrat. Liberal men, not conservatives, were the ones devoted to women’s issues. They marched at my side in support of abortion rights. They were enthusiastic about women succeeding in the workplace.

As time went on, I had many experiences that should have made me rethink my certainty. But I remained nestled in cognitive dissonance — therapy jargon for not wanting to see what I didn’t want to see.

One clue: the miscreants who were brutalizing me didn’t exactly look Reagan-esque. In middle and high schools, they were minority kids enraged about forced busing. On the streets of New York City and Berkeley, they were derelicts and hoodlums

Another red flag: while liberal men did indeed hold up those picket signs, they didn’t do anything else to protect me. In fact, their social programs enabled bad behavior and bred chaos in urban America. And when I was accosted by thugs, those leftist men were missing in action.

What else should have tipped me off? Perhaps the fact that so many men in ultra-left Berkeley are sleazebags. Rarely a week goes by that I don’t hear stories from my young female clients about middle-aged men preying on them. With the rationale of moral relativism, these creeps feel they can do anything they please. 

What finally woke me up were the utterances of “bitch,” “witch,” and “monster” toward Hillary Clinton and her supporters early last year. I was shocked into reality: the trash-talk wasn’t coming from conservatives, but from male and female liberals.   

I finally beheld what my eyes had refused to see: that leftists are Mr. and Ms. Misogyny. Neither the males nor the females care a whit about women.

Women are continually sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. If under radical Islam women are enshrouded and stoned and beheaded, so be it. 

My other epiphanies: those ponytailed guys were marching for abortion rights not because they cherished women’s reproductive freedom, but to keep women available for free and easy sex.  

And the eagerness for women to make good money? If women work hard, leftist men don’t have to.  

Then along came Sarah, and the attacks became particularly heinous. And I realized something even more chilling about the Left. Leftists not only sacrifice and disrespect women, but it’s far worse: many are perpetuators.

The Left’s behavior towards Palin is not politics as usual. By their laser-focus on her body and her sexuality, leftists are defiling her. 

They are wilding her. And they do this with the full knowledge and complicity of the White House.

The Left has declared war on Palin because she threatens their existence. Liberals need women dependent and scared so that women, like blacks, will vote Democrat. 

A strong, self-sufficient woman, Palin eschews liberal protection. Drop her off in the Alaskan bush and she’ll survive just fine, thank you very much. Palin doesn’t need or want anything from liberals — not hate crimes legislation that coddles her, and not abortion, which she abhors.

Palin is a woman of deep and abiding faith. She takes no marching orders from messiah-like wannabes like Obama. 

And so the Left must try to destroy her. And they are doing this in the most malicious of ways: by symbolically raping her.
Just like a perpetuator, they dehumanize her by objectifying her body. They undress her with their eyes.

They turn her into a piece of ass.

Liberals do this by calling her a c__t,  ogling her legs, demeaning her with names like “slutty flight attendant” and “Trailer Park Barbie,” and exposing her flesh on the cover of Newsweek.

Nothing is off-limits, not actress Sandra Bernhard’s wish that Palin be gang-raped or the sexualization of Palin’s daughters.

As every woman knows, leering looks, lurid words, and veiled threats are intended to evoke terror. Sexual violence is a form of terrorism. 

The American Left has a long history of defiling people to control and break them. The hard core ’60s leftists were masters of guerrilla warfare, like the Symbionese Liberation Army repeatedly raping Patty Hearst. Huey P. Newton sent a male Black Panther to the hospital, bloodied and damaged from a punishment of sodomy.  

The extreme Left still consider themselves warriors, righteous soldiers for their Marxist cause. With Palin, they use sexual violence as part of their military arsenal.

Palin is not the only intended victim. As Against Our Will described, the brutality is also aimed at men. By forcing men to witness Palin’s violation, the Left tries to emasculate conservative men and render them powerless. 

The wilding of any woman is reprehensible. But defiling a mother of five with a babe in her arms, and a grandmother to boot, is particularly obscene. It is, of course, Palin’s unapologetic motherhood that fuels the leftist fire.

Because as a mother and a fertile woman, Palin is as close to the sacred as a person gets. She is not just politically pro-life. Her whole being emanates life, which is a stark contrast to the darkness of the Left, the life-despoilers.  

These “progressives” are so alienated from the sacred that they perceive nothing as sacred. And they will destroy anyone whose goodness shines a mirror on their pathology. The spiritually barren must annihilate the vital and the fertile.

It has been almost two years since I woke up and broke up with liberalism. During these many months, I’ve discovered that everything I believed was wrong.

But the biggest shock of all has been realizing that the Democratic Party is hardly an oasis for women. Now that it has been infiltrated by the hard Left, it’s a dangerous place for women, children, and other living things. 

In the wilding of Sarah Palin, the Left shows its true colors. Rather than sheild the vulnerable, leftists will mow down any man, woman, or child who gets in their way. Instead of a movement of hope and change, it is a cauldron of hate.

From Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.

In these dark times, with spiritually bankrupt people at the helm, thank God we have bright lights like Sarah Palin to illuminate the darkness.

Congressman admits that Congress could care less about the Constitution

We sit here wondering outloud, “What are they doing in DC? Where in the Consittution do they have the power to pass this (insert any legislation that gives the Feds more power and control over the People).

Watch Judge Napolintano describe his conversation with Rep James Clyburn, a democrat from South Carolina.

Now you understand the size of the job we have in front of us and the years it will take to restore the Republic of America. We have to VOTE THEM OUT, ignore party lines and select and elect persons who are willing to work toward a constitutional state.

mucketyMuckety.com

(Another of my personal favorites!)
Muckety is an online tool for mapping relations and measuring influence. Published by Muckety LLC, a company founded in 2006 by a team with years of experience in journalism, technology and online publishing. The name Muckety derives, of course, from muckety mucks. Some follow the money. We follow the muckety, producing a daily news and information site based on online databases (which we enlarge daily), extensive research and old-fashioned journalism.

USAspending provides a searchable database of contracts and awards by entity name and location, award amount, and transaction type.

See also its partner site, FedSpending.org for grants, loans, insurance, subsidies and direct payments.

sourcewatchSourceWatch

SourceWatch is your guide to the names behind the news. SourceWatch is a collaborative project of the Center for Media and Democracy to produce a directory of the people, organizations and issues shaping the public agenda. A primary purpose of SourceWatch is documenting the PR and propaganda activities of public relations firms and public relations professionals engaged in managing and manipulating public perception, opinion and policy.

NOTE: Use this source cautiously. While they claim to be non-partisan, much if not all of their information describing grassroots liberty-minded groups like The 912 Project and many of the Tea Party groups is inaccurate or misleading.  In challenging their content in these cases, editors responded with source materials that they claim back up the content entries; however, those source materials themselves are representative only of the typical mainstream (or fringe) media’s anti-conservative viewpoints, which are highly partisan and often entirely inaccurate, as we know.

usdolUS Department of Labor

The Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment Standards Administration administers and enforces most provisions of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA). The LMRDA was enacted primarily to ensure basic standards of democracy and fiscal responsibility in labor organizations representing employees in private industry.  Search public disclosure database for union/payee information.

irsIRS Search for Charities, Non-Profits and Other Organizations

Publication 78, Cumulative List of Organizations described in Section 170(c) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, is a list of organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions. This online version is offered to help you conduct a more efficient search of these organizations.

LNLexisNexis

I used to work for this company, so I of course recommend it!  Arguably the largest database collection of news, company, legal and public records sources, LexisNexis is probably the best research tool out there. Of course, that greatness comes at a cost – but if you don’t have a subscription to the service, you can purchase either Pay As You Go packages, or a LexisNexis by Credit Card menu (just sign up and use your credit card). This allows for flexibility by the document, day, week or month. Searching is free, you only pay if you want to get the details on any of the results.

inteliusIntelius

If you need to find people, I like to use Intelius. Easy to use, up to date, inexpensive (Pay As You Go option). Gives you addresses and contact information, background checks, and more. And no, the system doesn’t notify the person for whom you’re searching that you’re looking up their info! Yes, it’s legal, as long as you are using it for legitimate purposes (i.e. to verify someone is who they say they are, or are a resident of the state they claim, etc.) and not for…say…stalking, or revenge, or slander…
