Vice President Hopeful and Tea Party Favorite Sarah Palin shows the world who she really is

The war mongering former presidential hopeful John McCain knows how to pick em. His former running mate Sarah Palin recently partaked in what appears to be a drunken brawl in Alaska. The once part time Alaskan Governor in the midst of the altercation screamed out, “Don’t you know who I am!” then came the reply from the crowd of onlookers, “This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show!”

And this!

You Read It Here First

And I stated it nearly a year ago, right here on Swamp Bubbles!
I have no special incite about Republican politics. It just seemed to me that the best qualified, most intelligent of the Bush family was being ignored by too many people in the discussion of who might be a strong Presidential candidate in 2016. In addition, members of the Bush family have established so many ties to so many political activists throughout the nation, how could Jeb be overlooked?

Eric Cantor To Join Investment Bank Moelis & Co. As Vice Chairman And Managing Director

Yes the former U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor will join investment bank Moelis & Co as vice chairman and managing director.

"Eric has proven himself to be a pro-business advocate and one who will enhance our boardroom discussions with CEOs and senior management as we help them navigate their most important strategic decisions," Moelis CEO Ken Moelis said in a statement.

Democrats Prosecutorial abuses

As I predicted Texas Governor Rick Perry's attorney's have filed to have the case dismissed outright with prejudice. Go to the link to read the writ.

I must say this is one of the best writs I've seen in a while. It details why using the courts for political reasons is a bad idea and the freedoms it attacks on us and our political system.

Uh oh, first FitzGerald now this

For a party that favors gun control these guys sure shoot themselves in the foot alot

Another Democrat, another car, another problem.

David Pepper, Democratic candidate for attorney general, racked up nearly $10,000 in fines for 180 infractions for a variety of violations including expired license plates, and parking tickets over a 14-year period. In all, Pepper was sent 169 delinquency violations for failing to pay tickets.

TX Gov Rick Perry Indicted On 2 Felony Corruption Charges

"A Travis County grand jury Friday indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest.

Grand jurors charged Perry, 64, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony. The first charge carries a punishment of 5-99 years and a fine of up to $10,000. The second charge is punishable by 2-10 years and a fine of up to $10,000.

The indictment stems from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.5 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget."

Why Does Ferguson Have A White Republican Mayor?

If the ratio of Black residents over White residents in the 60%-30% range, why did the White Republican run UNOPPOSED? Maybe this is why. I was a poll observer in the 2008 general election. What I saw was AMAZING! I saw at least 100 folks(after that I quit watching the phenomenon), of every age and persuasion, asking poll workers how to vote for Obama, and Obama only. When the helpers explained how to do that, they pointed out all the other important issues being presented, many of the voters things like "fcck that B-S, I'm not voting for ANYTHING other than Obama."

Can't wait to see the reaction to this story

So according to aCOWARD when you vote in a primary you are then lawfully held to that party. Here's a little story out of Michigan The revelation that the Michigan Democratic Party’s presumptive gubernatorial nominee voted in the most recent Republican presidential primary won’t strike most Michigan voters as much of a scandal, much less a stain on the nominee’s political integrity.

Teabag Prince Alex Jones Calls Michelle Obama "First Tranny"

“These people are the authors of such tyranny that they shouldn’t whine and complain when the public doesn’t believe anything they’re saying — especially when every time I look at ‘Michelle’ or ‘Michael’ Obama, the First Lady, or First Tranny, something doesn’t look right.”

“She doesn’t look like any black woman I’ve ever known,” Jones said. “She’s got shoulders that are wider than a man’s, which physiologically doesn’t happen. You can put three heads on a man’s shoulders, and two heads on a woman’s shoulders — that’s a known anatomy.”

Jon Husted seeks new nominations from the Lucas County Republican Party

Lucas County GOP BOE candidates unqualified and part of the problem

This was sent to me via e-mail:

==========
Below is an open letter I have sent to Secretary of State Jon Husted and members of the State wide press core asking for him to deny the proposed unqualified Board of Elections candidates sent to him by recently fired Board of Elections member and Republican Establishment Faction Party Chairman Jon Stainbrook.

Please read the below letter and if you have any questions please contact me via the listed means below.

Congressional Candidate Richard May's Campaign Suspends Lucas County Activities After Violent GOP Meeting

The Richard May for Congress campaign has suspended all activities and appearances within Lucas County in reaction to the disturbing events of last Wednesday, June 11. That evening the Republican Party of Lucas County gathered to organize itself after a bitterly contested primary to elect its Chairman and leadership. In the course of that meeting physical confrontations ensued between security controlled by the re-elected Lucas County Republican Chairman Jon Stainbrook and his opponents supporting local liberty activist Bill Delaney for chair.

Obama: “Order and Progress Can Only Come When Individuals Surrender Their Rights to an All-Powerful Sovereign”

Editor's Note: I've decided to put this at the top since many people simply read a title and never read the content of articles. Then they pontificate about the article's content as though they read it or even watched the video if supplied. If you don't read the content of the article, then you have no authority to comment on it. I find this incredibly ironic considering many conservatives are so upset their representatives don't read legislation before voting on it. I added the full video before publishing Leon's article, so that you can view it all the way through.

Tea Party dead according to some low information voters

What was it Mark Twain said- http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_VIRGINIA_PRIMARY_CANTOR?SITE=A... House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated Tuesday by a little-known economics professor in Virginia's Republican primary, a stunning upset and major victory for the tea party.

Triple Amputee Veteran Brian Kolfage Blasts Obama in Powerful Memorial Day Letter: You were Raised to Hate America

Senior Airman and veteran Brian Kolfage, Jr. is the epitome of what a man who has taken his oath seriously is about. After becoming the most severely wounded Airman in US history, Kolfage fought back against the odds to regain his life, marry his bride and continue to be a voice among veterans against the tyranny we see taking place under the Obama administration. In a powerful Memorial Day letter, Kolfage took time to blast Obama writing, "Your disdain for America and her greatness has never been a secret.

what's taking Jon Husted so long?

Is there anything more frustrating than government inertia? Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has made it well-known that the Lucas County Board of Elections has taken up more of his time than all of the other counties combined. He's put together a special investigative committee and has asked for the resignations of election board members and employees (most of whom haven't complied)--and still there's no final resolution.

Interestingly, one of the members of Husted's special committee is the very person who refused to place Jon Stainbrook on the BOE back in early 2010--former Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner. Stainbrook's like a bad penny for her.

If you recall, there were two factions of the Republican Party in Lucas County in those days--the Stainbrook faction and the Jeffrey Simpson faction. As seems to be the norm, the Ohio Republican Party couldn't get its act together to decide which of these factions was "official." So each submitted a nominee for the Lucas County BOE and Brunner rejected them both and made her own appointment (Mr. Husted--hint, hint).

barbara sears must go

Barbara Sears epitomizes all that is wrong with politicians--all wrapped-up in one person--pretty impressive.

SHE DOESN'T LISTEN TO HER CONSTITUENTS-In November 2011, the anti-Obamacare Ohio Health Care Amendment won EVERY COUNTY and by a statewide margin of 21 percent. As a "representative," one might think that Sears should have surmised that Ohioans didn't want any part of government-run healthcare. Yet, she vigorously pursued one of the most important steps to implementing Obamacare to its fullest extent in Ohio--Medicaid expansion. She and Kasich couldn't get the legislature to vote in favor of this, so they went around the elected representatives and pushed it through via a 7-person Legislative Oversight Panel. In a few years, the federal money for this expansion will run out and Ohioans will be stuck paying for it. Thanks Barb. IF FOR NO OTHER REASON, THIS SHOULD BE ENOUGH FOR SEARS TO BE VOTED OUT--but wait--there's more!

Labeling It's Own Citizens as Domestic Terrorists - The Ultimate Betrayal by the Federal Government

When a young man or woman joins the United States military, one of the first things they do before even being shipped off to boot camp is take the loyalty oath. "I (state your name) do solemnly swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same." The oath of enlistment goes on to say that the service member will follow orders of the president and the officers appointed over them per the regulations of the uniformed code of military justice.

Jim Tressel and UT Provost compete for the same job

What do former OSU football coach Jim Tressel and UT Provost Scott Scarborough have in common? Well, along with both being forced from their previous jobs as a result of scandals--they now are competing for the presidency of the University of Akron.

Tressel and Scarborough are among 19 applicants vying to be president of Akron (a link to a related article appears at the end of this posting). Tressel is currently UA's executive vice president for student success.

Obviously, the activities leading to Tressel's OSU departure were well-documented; but publicity regarding Scarborough's suspension and subsequent resignation from DePaul University was primarily limited to the Chicago media. In 2007, the DePaul Board of Trustees suspended Scarborough from his position as executive vice president for what a DePaul spokesman described as "Something we investigated thoroughly." Scarborough later resigned.

DePaul never publicly disclosed what he did, but Scarborough did not receive severance pay--which is very unusual for a person at his level of administration.

Stainbrook / Gallagher submitted 274 Central Committee petitions, none of the candidates collected their own signatures

Stainbrook / Gallagher submitted 274 Central Committee petitions, none of the candidates collected their own signatures

Did Stainbrook and Gallagher recruit candidates whose only job is to vote for them at the next re-organization meeting?

Or, did they recruit Republican go-getters who will take on the job of a Central Committee members, working in their neighborhoods to build a strong foundation for the future of the party.
