Did Ted Cruz Really Win Every County in Maine?

The Boston Globe and 2 local papers didn't give him a chance. He didn't win a single county in Massachussetts 4 days earlier. Did Cruz really win EVERY county in Maine?

The Complete Concordance of Cruz Corruption, Deceptions and Lies

Reagan was attacked by the Establishment, but people LIKED him. Cruz on the other hand is despised by mild mannered Huckabee and "sealed lips" George W. There is a reason. Here is an (almost) complete compendium of Cruz lies.

Why Isn't Anyone Discussing the SCOTUS Ruling on Natural Born Citizen?

There is a lie being told that "Natural Born Citizen" is not defined anywhere in the Constitution. That's True. What's Not True is that it is NOT settled by the Supreme Court. (It has)

Ted Cruz Takes More Wall Street Money than Hillary Clinton

When you see who REALLY is running Ted's campaign, you realize how "inside" this pretend outsider is. The top CIA, Goldman Sachs executives are LITERALLY running his campaign.

NAACP Silent on “Ugly, Black Babies” Abortionist


From: The National Black ProLife Union.

Abortion doctor Ashutosh Ron Virmani referred to the black children that he kills as "ugly black babies."

It's all too obvious that he has a particular disgust for black babies and therefore has no problems killing them.  Abortionist Ashutosh Ron Virmani said,

"Let me see one of you adopt one of those ugly black babies," .

The black community should be outraged because Ashutosh Virmani is a brazen racist and his statement supports what we already know of the billion dollar abortion industry--black babies  are targeted because they are seen as poor, worthless and maybe even "ugly."

The National Black ProLife Union believes this is a continuance of the “Negro Project,” of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood against the African American community.

Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist named Margaret Sanger who made it her life's work to limit the growth of the black population in America. She felt so strongly about this she initiated the "Negro Project" in 1939. The objective of the "project" was to infiltrate the black community by presenting birth control, sterilization and abortion as health options for black women.

To this day, Planned Parenthood's billion dollars a year, genocidal formula continues to kill women and children -- with Black women and children being disproportionately targeted for abortion.

Tonya Reaves, who was only 24, died Friday, July 20, 2012 on the operating table of a Chicago Planned Parenthood. According to a local CBS television station Tonya died of a hemorrhage due to an abortion.

The truth is that abortion is not safe for the women who experience physical and emotional problems for years and years after having an abortion -- abortion is not safe for the 4,500 innocent babies that are brutally slaughtered each and every day in America, and abortion is most certainly not safe for the young women who die at the hand of an abortionist.

Romney Just Did What Reagan Should Have Done and Nominated a Jack Kemp for VP

I'll admit I haven't always been Paul Ryan's biggest fan as you can tell by a previous post of mine titled "Paul Ryan is Overrated and his Budget Plan Sucks" which incidentally is getting quite a bit of traffic now that he is the VP pick (I seem to have trashed the entire current GOP ticket).  And I stand by my criticisms of him.  I think many on the right are just so in love with Paul Ryan that they aren't looking at his plans critically, especially the tax reform section of his budget plan which could easily increase taxes on a lot of middle class Americans thanks to its planned elimination of deductions.  Also, in 2011 his ACU rating was only 80, thanks to a couple of pro-Union votes and votes for big spending bills.

But putting all that aside, I do think he is a great pick by Romney for VP. I'm actually quite surprised he picked Ryan as Ryan clearly overshadows him.  He's young, energetic, very well spoken and clearly a leader in the GOP.  Many, in fact, had been pressuring him to run for President himself.  Romney's pick of Ryan is clearly a testament of him putting the country first as well as his business acumen.  In the private sector, you want to hire the most talented people available as that increases your profit.  In politics, you seem to more often be looking to check boxes.

So how do I reconcile my earlier criticism of Ryan with my stance that he is a great pick?  Here are some reasons:

  • My earlier criticisms sprouted from everyone gushing over his budget plan, so I thought I'd point out some very specific imperfections within the plan and within Ryan's record.  But we don't live in a perfect world and nobody who Romney was going to pick was going to be 100% conservative/libertarian.  He was never going to pick a Jim DeMint or a Rand Paul to be his VP but Ryan was one of the better choices.  If Romney had picked someone like Rob Portman, I'd be shaking my head today.  Portman is essentially a Bush Republican who doesn't stand for much.  Ryan, on the other hand, definitely stands for a lot.  He stands for the America that we used to have, an America that can come back under the right leadership.
  • If you look at Ryan's lifetime ACU rating of 91.69, he compares quite favorably to people we think of as stalwart conservatives.  Newt had a lifetime rating of 90, Dick Cheney had a 91 and Jack Kemp had an 89.  That's pretty good company, I'd say and as he has been in Congress for 14 years, you can't say there aren't enough datapoints to reach a conclusion.
  • Looking at the big picture, picking Ryan is the same as if Reagan had picked Jack Kemp in 1980, who was also a relatively youthful and charismatic House reformer who was the darling of conservatives.  Back then though Reagan felt he need to balance the ticket with someone from the establishment with a long record and chose George H.W. Bush.  This one pick gave control of the GOP to the Bush family for 20 years following Reagan's departure from office as being the VP automatically gives you an advantage when running for President (especially if that Presidency is successful).  This pick has the potential to give the GOP to the reformers for years to come.  People who won't shirk from tackling Medicare despite the fact that its considered a "third rail" in politics.  These are the people we need to have in power in order to keep America from sliding further towards bankruptcy.  Not thinking to the future is definitely one of the problems I had with W.  I'm a huge Dick Cheney fan but it was pretty clear due to his health that he wouldn't be President.  Not having someone waiting in the wings for two terms meant that we had to settle for a John McCain in 2008.
I also just want to add one more thing, I'm relatively impressed with how Romney has been campaigning for President.  I expected that once his challengers dropped out that he would immediately tack towards the left (I really thought he'd be the etch-a-sketch candidate), which is something even Reagan did in 1980.  But he hasn't really, he is campaigning as a conservative and doubled down on that by picking Paul Ryan as his VP.  While he isn't a bomb thrower like Newt, the main substance of his speeches are probably no different than what a Newt would say if he were in the same position.  He is offering a real choice for voters and driving Democrats nuts. 

What else could I want?

Analysis: Veep Pick Gives Obama 4 to 8 points Back


Alan V_thumbAlan Vera graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Loyola University with a minor in military science. He served as an Army Airborne Ranger in special operations and lectures nationally on political issues and business strategies.

The selection of Paul Ryan as Vice President

RESULT:  The GOP gives back 4-8 percentage points.

This assessment is not at all related to my role with True the Vote, a non-partisan, grassroots effort to restore election integrity. This assessment is from my perspective as a magna cum laude graduate in Political Science. It is not about right and wrong. It is not about constitutionality. It is not about whether
or not Paul Ryan is a good man, a fiscal conservative or a real patriot.

This is purely about Political Science as it relates to running campaigns and winning elections.

We have two major political parties in the U.S. We have the “corrupt party” and the “stupid party.” In the last two weeks the Communist Party has furthered its reputation as corrupt with the Obama PAC TV spot accusing Mitt Romney of causing the death of a woman from cancer and the laughable statements from Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Deborah Whatshername Schultz.

From the perspective of Political Science, last night and this morning the GOP proved once again why it has earned the title “the stupid party.” Last night in the White House Chief of Staff Valerie Jarrett and DNC Chair Debbie Whatshername Schultz were exchanging high fives over the GOP selection. Joe Biden tried to join in, but kept missing and hitting Debbie on the forehead. Fortunately, Debbie was stoned as usual and didn’t notice.

I look at the same polls that Dick Morris sees. In the swing/battleground states Romney has been ahead and has been gaining momentum. The selection of Paul Ryan will give back to the Commies somewhere between 4-8 percentage points of the popular vote. At this time I can’t tell what impact that has on the electoral vote.

Unbelievably, the GOP has played right into the hands of the CommieCrat narrative that the GOP:

  1. Is White.
  2. Is Male.
  3. Is Wealthy.
  4. Cares more about cutting taxes for the rich than helping the poor and elderly with their medical needs.

It doesn’t matter whether any of the above is true or not. It matters that the CommieCrats are EXPERTS at selling this narrative and that the stupid party missed a key chance to eliminate one or two of the key CommieCrat talking points. They will make good use of these fables to re-gain lost ground.

(For perspective, I subscribe under assumed names to the email newsletters of every Commie elected official in East Texas. By 10:00 a.m. CDT this morning each of them had sent out their email blast attacking Paul Ryan and the GOP with the very talking points I’ve summarized above.)

Let’s examine the problem further.


The stupid party has absolutely NO CLUE how to play OFFENSE. It is ALWAYS on the defensive, defending itself against CommieCrat initiatives, always allowing the Commies to play OFFENSE.

The selection of Paul Ryan was a typical GOP defensive move. How?

Ryan does not offend the key base of GOP financial contributors. The GOP believes MONEY is the key to winning any election, so their base of contributors is of highest priority. Picking Ryan defends the financial base.

As a favorite son, Ryan helps the GOP defend its recent gains in the swing state of Wisconsin.

Paul Ryan has NEVER said anything memorable, let alone controversial. So the GOP has defended itself against haunting echoes of any memorable speech.

The GOP has made some gains among fiscally conservative Tea Party types. Paul Ryan is associated with some efforts to slow down government growth (not reverse it), and this helps the GOP defend its gains among conservative activists.

Now the GOP will again find itself defending Paul Ryan’s budget bills against accusations that he was going to “push grandma off the cliff on medical benefits.”


20% of legally registered voters are avowed Progressive/Communists. They cannot be moved.

40% of legally registered voters identify themselves as “conservative,” and will likely vote with the GOP.

That means that the election battle is for the 40% in the middle.

Half of this middle group (20%) is the “ill informed” segment. Though they claim generally Christian and conservative values, they swallow all the crap that the Commies throw out there. They buy the “social justice” crap through their churches and drink the Kool-Aid on most welfare issues. The GOP is probably incapable of “de-programming this group, and they can easily go with the CommieCrats.

So now it’s 40/40 for the GOP and the Commies. The battle comes down to the remaining 10%. These are the “un-informed.” They don’t care about politics. They don’t do any research for themselves. They think politics is boring. But they watch TV and are, therefore, subject to the lies and distortions broadcast by the state run media. And, they do turn out to vote every so often.

Polls have shown that Obama has lost 10-15 percentage points of his previously strong black voting base. With an all-white ticket on the GOP side, the Commies have a good chance to recover some of that lost ground on purely racial propaganda.

Polls have also shown that enthusiasm among Black voters for Obama has waned and the likely voter turnout will not be as high in 2012 as it was in 2008. Ryan’s selection gives the Commies a chance to re-invigorate and re-energize that base, again purely along the lines of race and a threat to welfare entitlements.


The GOP will again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory UNLESS it breaks tradition and goes on OFFENSE, quickly adopts and organizes grassroots tactics and spends every penny it has exposing Obama with no holds barred.

In the just-completed Texas GOP primary for U.S. Senate, the RINO Texas Lieutenant Governor played the part of the CommieCrats. He attacked Tea Party Ted Cruz with vicious TV ads very much like what the Commies will use against the GOP ticket between now and November.

Cruz countered with a massive, Tea-Party-led grassroots effort that involved literally thousands of hours of block walking by dedicated conservatives who countered every Dewhurst advertising point in one-on- one discussions on the front porches of voters.

Though out-spent by $29 Million, the Cruz campaign pulled off a 14 percentage point win. Cruz even had campaigners at every single voting location reaching the “un-informed” voters and literally winning votes on the asphalt just outside the voting area. It worked. Grassroots work can overcome mass media every time.

I don’t know whether or not the GOP understands this. I suspect that the establishment of the party will remain the stupid party. If Obama is to be defeated in November, it will not be because the GOP did anything right. It will be because conservative activists across the country get off their asses, out of their homes and into the neighborhoods and community centers to educate the “un-informed voters” (10%) on the truth about the candidates.


Does Paul Ryan’s selection improve the GOP’s chances of winning in November? No.

I like Paul Ryan. I’ve read his bills. I think he’s smart. I think he’s a good guy.

I heard him speak at the Texas GOP Convention in Fort Worth in June. He was very informative. He was very knowledgeable. He was very boring.

The stupid party is not capable of beating Hussein Obama. They will try over and over to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. If Hussein is to be defeated, it will be up to “We the People” to make it happen.

So what else is new?

Watch Everyday Citizens Resist Tyranny


TSA is now conducting random check points at bus stations, (and ON random buses), as well as on freeways in Tennessee and elsewhere.  PolitiJim’s Facebook page has steadily been document the encroachment of the growing police state where even city and county cops, think they have authority to arrest you for documenting their activities  or even just exhibiting free speech.

Hat tip to EconomicPolicyJournal who shared this video today of a US citizen who knows his rights and isn’t putting up with it anymore.

Would You “Roll” Pelosi for $4 Billion?


The news from the “Caribou Coffee” emails has centered almost exclusively around the likely illegal acts by the White House to conduct lobbying offsite to deceive and subvert lobbying disclosure laws.  That’s bad.

But what is much more damning to me is this excerpt from those emails:

“I will roll [P]elosi to get the 4 billion,”
Messina told Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America lobbyist Jeffrey Forbes.

“As you may have heard I am literally rolling over the house. But there just isn’t 8-10 billion.”

Aside from the preventative Pepto-Bismol prescription one might need to sequester thoughts of what “rolling Pelosi” might entail, there are far more insidious issues to consider from this revelation.  What Obama, the FDA and Big Pharma did is literally killing people.

Is It Wrong to Rag on Mitt Romney Before Tampa?


Many nervous Nellies are expressing displeasure at my post showing that presumptive candidates only have a 33% chance of winning the general election while non-presumptive candidates form a brokered convention have gone on to win 7 of 8 contests.

There are 7 good reasons (in my opinion) why not only is it acceptable to challenge Mitt Romney in Tampa – it is necessary.

Part 1 – Is it Wrong to Rag on Mitt Romney Prior to Tampa?

Part 2 - Is the Mitt Romney Campaign Masterful or Misleading?

Fake School Collects Taxes And Wastes Money By Simply Ignoring Texas Law - Or Faking It


PolitiJim readers will remember the retired, 30 year school teacher who began to expose a “fake” school district in Houston that collects millions of tax payer dollars but has no official students.  She hasn’t stopped her crusade against waste and, in fact, has nearly single handedly taken this $100 million monstrosity on by herself which should be a lesson to all T.E.A. Party patriots everywhere.   By attending meetings, filing Freedom of Information Act requests and publicizing her findings through TexasTrashTalk.com, she has begun to get the attention of the State Attorney General and others.

Sarah P: Here is your power of one.

The back story summary is this: When INDEPENDENT School Districts (ISDs) began to take the place of COUNTY school districts back in the 1950’s – the COUNTY districts either were merged into the new ISD’s or just shut down.  Through Texas political hijinks, payoffs and manipulation, the power brokers kept their “fake school” long after students were no longer enrolled, and kept their taxing authority in place to fleece Houston area residents.  This obsolete district, does take children for services from other schools, but taxpayers are ALREADY paying state taxes for these exact same services performed by regional service centers.  Meanwhile they spend $100K for the mayor of nearby towns, lavish dinners and hundreds of thousands on liberal lobbyists to get more Federal money.  In other words, tax payers are paying for bureaucrats to find ways to be taxed more.

When this “fake” school district (the Harris County Board of Education, or HCDE) failed to report their redistricting boundary changes, HCDE sued the county to cover up their mistake.  And that may not have been very smart.  The combination of picking a fight with the Harris County (Houston) Commissioners while voting to put Harris County taxpayers at risk for an additional $1 Million to start a for-profit business that will compete with other Harris County, and Texas businesses, may finally be the heap of hubris that will halt this decades long scam. 

TexasTrashTalk.com (TTT) has peeled layer after stinking layer of fraud and abuse, but has finally figured out what they’ve been hiding all this time.  Namely, they either ignore the laws that keep them in operation – or simply rewrite them without the knowledge of the State of Texas.

TTT has outlined three areas that explain how HCDE has hidden their tax payer theft.

  • By law,the $18 million HCDE collects from county property owners is to be distributed to the REAL schools (ISD’s) in Harris County. But not a single penny has made it to a single ISD.  HCDE simply ignores the law.
  • Another law dictates that these collected taxes ONLY be used in Harris County.  But HCDE underwrites infrastructure and administration costs for servicing 400 other schools – many in places like Minnesota and Massachusetts!  Again, HCDE simply ignores the law.
  • In another case when HCDE didn’t ignore the law – THEY SIMPLY REWROTE IT in their own literature.  They changed language in a bill that told them to provide information to the Commissioner of Education into language to perform any functions conferred on them by the Commissioner of Education.

AND this hidden little bureaucracy has been doing it for DECADES!  How?  Because no citizen until to now has taken the responsibility to truly ask what they are doing.  Or to persistently find out what LAW gives them the right to take our money.

T.E.A. Party patriots, THIS is how you do it.  You show up, ask questions and research.  And unchecked, government only grows and grows and grows until there are too many greedy pigs feeding at the trough to fight to remove it.

Likely if you don’t do it – no one will.

Just as the corrupt politicians get their “experience” and track record to run for higher office from these little entry level government entities – so too can we cultivate good government watchdogs.  Please read the entire article here.  It can serve as a format of how to start policing your own LOCAL school districts, city councils, public library or park committees to find out how money is spent.  And as we educate and elect REALLY prudent stewards of our tax dollars – these are the folks who will eventually rise to take on bigger and bigger fish.
