All-Politics-is-Local

Remember, Remember The 3rd of November

It is often said that all politics is local, though locals rarely show up to vote for their town councilmen, county supervisors, sheriffs, State Delegates and Senators. Obama can’t raise your property taxes, or your gas tax, or approve new utility fees, or build large condensed housing in the middle of your rural area.  Your […]

SENATORS SCHUMER, McCAIN and of course GRAHAM still for the MARK of the BEAST ID CARD! NO FOLLOWER of CHRIST should support these SENATORS at the POLLS!

Both the Weekly Standard (which I do not fully trust) and the Wall Street Journal (which I trust more) have called for a biometric ID card for ALL US workers to prove they have legal status.  Here’s the Weekly Standard’s quoting the WSJ: The Journal writes that “at least five of the eight senators writing […]

‘No Budget – No Pay’ Unconstitutional? No Problem Make it a 100% Tax!

House Republicans finally came up with a good idea. If Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats continue to avoid their duty and pass a budget, the House wants to dock their pay. In other words, if you don’t do your job, you don’t get paid. That’s pretty darn hard to defend to the American Public. […]

LOOKS LIKE the APPELLATE DEFENDER bill (Senate Bill 738) will go to SENATE COURTS COMMITTEE next week!

I have written several times about the restoration of the Appellate Defender’s office in Virginia.  The Indigent Defense Commission had to abolish the office due to budget cuts. Now you can do something about it!  Email your senator if you are in his or her district (especially the Republicans!) or can if a Virginia voter, […]

WE CAN WIN on this BAD UN TREATY! MORE AMMO from NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE! COMPLIANCE with this treaty would COST MILLIONS! IT’S UNCONSTITUTIONAL to ANSWER to a FOREIGN AGENCY!

Parental Rights (www.parentalrights.org) is reporting in its email it sends to me and seven million other people that the calls are overwhelmingly against the treaty but the emails are about 50-50! According to our contacts on the Hill, Senate offices are getting pounded with calls regarding the CRPD, and most of those calls are against […]

DECEMBER 4 is the DAY! THE VOTE on the UN DISABILITIES TREATY! TALK TO YOUR SENATOR!

parentalrights.org reports that Tuesday, December 4 is the date for the vote in the Senate on the UN Disabilities Treaty.  Let’s just say NO!  Here’s why! 1.  It hurts parental rights.  All disabled children (and every child who ever have had an IEP or 504 plan could be considered disabled) will be subject to bureaucrats […]

UN TREATY ALERT! CALL SENATORS WEBB and WARNER! NO on CRPD!

The so-called Convention for the Rights of the Persons with Disabilities is back again! www.parentalrights.org is reporting that Senator Reid wants to vote on CRPD this week!  We need to call our senators today or tomorrow. I would say:  First, a lame duck session is not appropriate for a serious matter like this treaty.  Only […]

RAND strikes BACK at FELLOW SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM for supporting a DEMOCRAT! MORE ADS maybe?

Senator Rand Paul not only refused to back down from the “bipartisan” attack of Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Lindsey Graham (R[?]-SC) but doubled down on the foreign aid issue: But Paul — a libertarian-minded freshman who often finds himself in the minority of the minority in Senate votes — doesn’t seem too concerned. “They […]

WHY would SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC) help SENATOR JOE MANCHIN (D-WV) against SENATOR RAND PAUL (R-KY)? THE 2014 SC PRIMARY, that’s WHY!

I was and am elated when Senator Rand Paul ran these ads in Florida and West Virginia about their senator’s support for foreign aid for Egypt, Libya and Pakistan!  I would not wait:  No aid to any nation except maybe Israel! Well, Senator Manchin didn’t like his ad very much: Manchin said many senators thought […]

MY HERO: Senator MIKE LEE of UTAH – he STOPPED a SNEAKY ATTEMPT to pass the DISABILITIES TREATY and CAME UP with 35 other senators who WILL NOT VOTE YES THIS SESSION!

www.parentalrights.org reported and The Hill confirms that there was first a sneaky attempt to pass the sovereignty-killing, unnecessary, dangerous (especially to parental rights and homeschoolers) Convention to Protect the Rights of the Disabled (CPRD) stopped by Utah Senator Mike Lee and then the wonderful “round robin” letter Lee then produced, signed by enough Senators to […]

Remember Obama’s “To-Do” List? Senate Democrats Sure Don’t

Earlier this month, President Obama made a big show about rolling out a “to-do” list he had for Congress. In a speech in Albany, NY, he said, “[T]oday I’m announcing a handy little ‘To-Do’ list that we’ve put together for Congress. You can see it for yourselves at whitehouse.gov. It’s about the size of a Post-It note, so every member of […]

The Family Foundation Taken to Task for Weak Pro-life Stance on HB1

Legislative Gridlock – A Natural Firewall Protecting Citizens from Bad Government

How many times did the debate moderator, the senile Charlie Rose et al refer to the paralysis in Washington, DC? Rose and the other moderators seem to think this gridlock is a bad thing.
