I am proud to say that my support of Jason Chaffetz puts me squarely in line with the principles of the Caucus, which has also endorsed Jason.
If it is not yet apparent to you how bad things are in Washington, maybe you need to find another source of news and information. The MOM (Move-On Media) is not telling you even half the story, and the part they are telling you is not even half true.
The answer is to simply stop listening to them. Turn off the TV; there’s very little of value on TV and a lot of indoctrination going on, even in the everyday sitcoms and drama series. You want news and information? Try talk radio. Yes, they are biased to one side of the political spectrum, but they will be the first to tell you that up front, unlike the MOM which pretends to be unbiased but isn’t. The broadcasters of Talk radio aren’t hiding things from you and aren’t twisting events to suit their worldview.
Most people I know, that listen to talk radio, are the most informed people I have come across. They take the news events that are described by the radio talkers and distill out the basic principles on their own. The more time they listen to talk radio, the more apt they are to being open to discussion on a host of issues.
What is truly ironic is that the proxies of the MOM almost always criticize listeners of talk radio as being stupid, uneducated, or brainwashed. Of course, the people who listen exclusively to MOM sources are never described in such condecending and patronizing terms. That, of itself, is proof that what I’m telling you is true.
So back to the orginal point, I would encourage you to watch the presentation of the Independence Caucus on their website. Find out what the MOM has not been telling you about the current situation. And join us!
Glenn Beck interviewed David Freddoso, author of a new book called The Case Against Barak Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate. If you didn’t get a chance to hear it the first time, you can read the transcript here. Here’s an excerpt:
FREDDOSO: Barbara Boxer had stood up and said, “I support this bill, everyone should vote for this bill.” Obama voted against it and that puts him on the very fringes when it comes to issues of human life at its very beginning.
GLENN: So wait a minute. He is Barbara Boxer was on the other side of this issue?
FREDDOSO: Yes, that’s right. Hillary Clinton was also on the other side. The vote was 98 0 and the two guys who weren’t there to vote were pro life Republicans. So basically every abortion proponent in the United States Senate is more protective of human life in its early stages than Senator Obama.
I am now horrified at the thought of this evil man becoming President of this country. He is not just mistaken; he is not just misguided or wrongheaded. There is no other valid description of Barak Obama than evil. Yes, that sounds terribly partisan and maybe unfair. But go read the transcript and see of you don’t agree with me afterwards. No-one with any sense of right and wrong could make the conscious decisions Obama has made in his political career and be called “simply misguided.”
The man or woman who takes up the mantle of the President of the United States must be prepared to “preserve and defend the Constitution,” which includes in the preamble our national intent to “secure the blessings of Liberty, to ourselves and our Posterity…”
In plain terms, the Founders recognized the Rights of the millions of the unborn that would follow after them; the Rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Our President must defend this. He must not be of the opinion that we can leave our babies to die, unloved and alone on a cold, metal slab in a medical supply closet, with only a blanket for companionship in their few moments of life. The man who serves in our highest office must be a man of the highest feelings and nobility towards his fellow man. Not one who so indifferently disposes of our most helpless citizens as a “punishment” for a mistake, or relief from inconvenience.
Having lost a child within this past year, my soul is inflamed with passion against this great evil. I held my beautiful, precious daughter in my arms as her death approached, prepared to give everything I had if I could stop it. I am offended that anyone would consider me part of that same family of beings who, were they in that situation, would turn away and leave that little one to die without even a tear shed for her loss. Yet, so it is.
I am left wondering, saddened and angered, at how the human mind can become so twisted and perverse as this, the heart so bereft of that natural affection which should dwell there. The President must not be of this low quality. Beyond the beautiful speeches and lofty rhetoric, he must be greater than most of us in his mind, and the “servant of all” in his heart. Barak Obama is neither.
Someone who has posted anonymous comments to this blog thinking they will sway your opinion regarding Jason Chaffetz. They have posted a blog at www.thetruthaboutjason.com. Of course, I have to refer to this individual as “they” because I honestly don’t know if this is a male or female; I have no name to go on.
But that brings up an interesting point: Anonymity. Why be anonymous? Why not come out and boldly be counted? The Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees the right to confront your accusers. It’s very telling when someone makes accusations like this and violates constitutional principles to do it. Anonymity guarantees the accuser they will never have to be held responsible for their accusations–they are free to say and do whatever they wish, without fear of retribution or punishment, even if they are wholly wrong.
I don’t know who this person is, but from their repeated references to David Leavitt, my guess is that they are an embittered Leavitt supporter. Prove me wrong–show some integrity and step into the light. Your anonymity speaks volumes about you–and not kindly.
They say they want a civil dialogue, yet they resort to smearing, false accusations, innuendo, half-truths and other rhetorical devices in order to manipulate your opinion. In other words, this person hides like a coward, speaks out of both sides of their mouth, and argues like a liberal.
Jason Chaffetz kicked off the next phase of his campaign today. Jennifer Scott, Chaffetz’s Campaign Manager, said today that they are kicking off “the biggest grass roots effort in the history of [Utah's] Third District.”
The campaign plans to take advantage of new technologies to help distribute news and information, similar to the methods used by Ron Paul and Mitt Romney in their respective bids for the Presidency. Ron Paul has demonstrated that such a movement can be powerful. He remains in the race despite insurmountable odds largely because of the support he gets from his on-line efforts.
Jason has an uphill battle on his hands as he faces Chris Cannon in the June 24th primary. Cannon isn’t going down easily; he has the advantages of name recognition, federal monies reserved for incumbents, and the infamous legacy of John McCain–the McCain-Feingold Act, which places restrictions on advertising for candidates by supporters in the month previous to an election. But those restrictions don’t apply to the media, so any media coverage Cannon can get is basically unrestricted advertising.
But Jason is not to be underestimated. He pulled off a stunning upset at the convention, and I’m betting that the mood for change is contagious; people want to see new faces and new ideas in Congress, and have demonstrated quite forcefully already that they are tired of Republicans acting like Liberal Democrats.
Chris Cannon says we shouldn’t change the status quo when it’s working so well for Utah. He has earned the respect of the movers and shakers in Washington D.C., and it would be foolish to give that up. From my personal perspective, the fact that Mr. Cannon claims to have the respect of Washington insiders speaks volumes. I mean, what does it say when some of the most corrupt, crooked politicians in the country respect you? Ultimately, it is the respect of the people, not of Washington politicians that Cannon should be seeking. That seems to be one of many differences between Jason Chaffetz and Chris Cannon. Please tell your friends about Jason Chaffetz.
