National Primary Your Congressman Day

Not sure what day is “National Primary Your Congressman Day”, so we’ll make it today.

At all levels of governance, if you believe your city, county, state, country are headed in the wrong direction, your jobs three:

  • Find the name of the incumbents
  • Educate your neighbors
  • Vote them out in the Primary.

…that is, if you still believe in your Party’s platform.  Should the incumbent win in the Primary, it’s your call whether or not to stick with them in the General Election.  Remember, you never waste your vote.

From Ed Martin…

Dear Friend,

http://www.whiteflagcongress.com

Did you know: today is National Primary Your Member of Congress Day!*  All across America, men and women are waking up to the fact that the Congress – both parties! – is in service of themselves and their special interest supporters … not the American people and the Constitution.  And regular folks – like you! – are filing to run for Congress against these incumbents who fail to do their duties.

One example of a failed Congress: last year, members of Congress gave themselves an automatic salary increase.  However, Congress also gave Social Security recipients receive no “cost of living adjustment” increase.  That’s right: your Congressman got more take-home-pay and you or your senior friends are told to keep living on last year’s social security even as inflation and costs go up.

So let’s get back to National Primary Your Member of Congress Day!  Is it really worth doing?

Yes, yes it is.  Because just last night refugees to America were arrested for plotting terror (the refugee program funded by Paul Ryan’s Congress a few weeks ago!).  Because Planned Parenthood announced yesterday that in addition to abortions, they will fund Hillary Clinton’s campaign for President (Planned Parenthood funded by Paul Ryan’s Congress a few weeks ago!).  And because the Paul Ryan-Obama Omnibus bill of 2015 includes quadrupling immigration visas (more jobs for foreigners, less for Americans, brought to you by Paul Ryan’s Congress!).

In this short email, we won’t try to cover this Congress’ betrayal on education (they funded Common Core!) and guns (they funded Obama’s background check gun grab!).  This Congress issues press releases, offers sound bites, and takes meaningless show votes.  To try to fool us into thinking they care about us or the Constitution!

It’s a disaster but you already know this.  So, NOW YOU HAVE TO ACT.

Please consider filing for office against your incumbent member of Congress.  People will help you run including me.  Even as we all work to elect a new President – one who actually abides by the Constitution – we need a Congress that puts Americans first!

Email me (edmartin1791@gmail.com) to find out more.  “Making America great again” seems far off because right now we need to save Americans from Congress. Don’t despair: we can do it.  File today.

All the best.

Ed Martin

President, Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum

* I am making it today.  I hope you will join me.

It makes me think of the song, Old McDonald (EIEIO)

Every Incumbent… …EVERY INCUMBENT… …OUT!

Help CNN With Debate Questions For Tonight’s Debate

CNN is looking for help w/ questions for the Democrat debate.

Their unbiased, crack, fair and balanced staff has come up with:

  • What’s your favorite reality show?

  • How cool is it to be as cool as you are?

  • What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

  • When you become president, will you fly in a jet fighter?

  • In your past, were you more? …or less awesome?

  • Can you name a Supreme Court case?

  • How many letters were in the alphabet when you were born?

  • Aren’t Republicans just real meanies?

  • What’s your favorite color?

Maybe that’s why they had to shorten in from 3 to 2 hours…

It Is Time To Unseat Mrs. Emerson From The US House Of Representative.

An Article by David Larson, Jackson, MO:

Representative Jo Ann Emerson needs to worry about her chances in the August 2012, Republican primary.  Of the 103 votes cast in the concluding straw poll at the Cape County Tea Party Candidate Forum on July 17, 2012, Mrs. Emerson received the support of seventeen or 16.5% of those who voted.  Mrs. Emerson did not make an appearance nor did she send someone from her staff to speak at the event.  This speaks volumes to her concerns of the folks who elected her to represent the 8th Congressional District.

On the other hand, Mr. Bob Parker garnered eighty-four of the 103 votes simply by attending and expressing his views to the people present at the Forum.  To put this in terms of percentage, it was 79.6% of the votes cast.

This was a huge difference in support of one candidate over the other.  Mr. Parker, one might conclude, demonstrated his concern for the folks he may someday represent in the US House of Representatives.

The following quote is taken from the Matt Kibble’s book Hostile Takeover: Resisting Centralized Government’s Stranglehold on America, Chapter 5.

  • “Those in power are not only pushing back against the liberation of individual preferences seen elsewhere in society; they are pushing back hard against anyone who wants to be let inside the castle gates, anybody who wants to be part of the process of deciding.  Ensconced inside, the political class seems to be looking down from the castle turrets at the rest of America.
  • Their disdain is palpable.
  • They see unwashed rubes, amateurs who could not possibly understand the complexities of governance.  We are just too simple to understand, not quite smart enough to take care of ourselves on the big issues of the day.  They, the experts have drawn a line in the sand that you, a stakeholder in the American Enterprise, shall not pass.”

Josh Haynes, senior staffer with Emerson’s campaign, was quoted in the Southeast Missourian on July 20, 2012, Emerson fliers attack Parker on drug, terror stances:

“Parker’s logic is flawed and shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how the federal government works.”

As a senior staffer of Team Emerson Campaign, Mr. Haynes words speak directly to the core values of Mrs. Emerson.  From the two quotes above it does not take a “member of the political class” to connect the dots of Mrs. Emerson’s feelings for her employer, the voters in the 8th Congressional District.  One might surmise Mrs. Emerson is a “Washington Insider” (a member of the House of Representatives since 1996) feeling she knows what is best for the people in the her District no matter how the majority in her District feel about a “big issue.”  Sometimes her votes reflect the views’ of the District and sometimes not.  Mrs. Emerson could better serve her constituents by following this guiding Principle of Liberty, “The God-given right to govern is vested in the sovereign authority of the whole people.”

Mrs. Emerson’s surrogates want to link Mr. Parker to a fringe libertarian group, NORML.  The campaign should not go there.  Mrs. Emerson has donated to the campaign of one of the most vile, divisive, “hate speech mongering” member of Congress and the Democratic Party Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  All one has to do is follow this link

http://www.fec.gov/finance/disclosure/norindsea.shtml

Type in Emerson Jo Ann, press Get Listing and look for 29935452666.

It is a document on the Federal Election Commission’s website.  It shows Mrs. Emerson as a donor to the Wasserman-Schultz for Congress 2010 US House of Representative Primary campaign in the amount of $218.50.

It is time to unseat Mrs. Emerson from the US House of Representative.

One Thing Jo Ann Emerson and Barack Obama Have In Common…

…both are running away from their records in Washington, DC.

h/t wikipedia.orgSadly, that’s not the only thing.

Like Obama’s attack on Bain Capital, Emerson’s campaign is disingenuously attacking her opponent over a comment regarding the failed Federal war on drugs.  So, you have to ask the following question:

“Does Bob Parker advocate that laws should be changed such that residents of MO-8 can go out and buy marijuana for recreational use?”

No one in Emerson’s Campaign could honestly answer ‘yes’.  The Staff knows it’s not true.  Jim Limbaugh (Emerson’s Treasurer) knows it’s not true.  Jo Ann Emerson knows it’s not true.  As an answer to my question, I would get the same mumbo-jumbo-lawyer-approved argument that they hope will keep the voters’ focus off of the real issue in this election – her record.

The votes that Jo Ann casts are the most important things she does as a member of the House; it’s her record.  So, why does Jo Ann Emerson want to keep the focus off her record?

Simple:  Far too many of her votes are on the same side as Barack Obama*

  • On TARP (the bailout of the big banks) Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • On bailing out the corrupt AIG Insurance giant, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • On allowing the VPs and Presidents and CEOs to still get bonuses at the bailed-out banks, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • On exposing taxpayer dollars to failing union pensions, Jo Ann Emerson co-sponsored it (to the delight of Barack Obama).
  • On Cash for Clunkers, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • On the NDAA, that allows the government to imprison American Citizens indefinitely without trial, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • On funding the business-crushing EPA, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • On funding the Department of Education that centrally controls our children’s future with big-government edicts, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • On funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion factory, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • On funding Dodd-Frank and its business-crushing regulations, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • On violating the 72-hour Republican promise for voting on bills, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.
  • After the Tea Party and millions of Americans screamed ‘NO!’ to more spending… …on raising the debt ceiling and enslaving your children to $2.4 Trillion more debt and deficit spending, Jo Ann Emerson voted with Barack Obama.

Jo Ann Emerson repeatedly votes with Barack Obama, and considering that she made these votes in the face of a renewed Conservative and Tea Party microscope, she will continue to vote with Barack Obama if she is sent back.

The Heritage Foundation* has calculated a more than disappointing 44% Conservative rating for her Congressional Votes (Todd Akin = 82%).  And, the Madison Project put her top-3 most liberal Republican voting record into their Hall Of Shame.*

True Conservative?

In a recent flyer attacking her opponent, the claim is that she is the “TRUE Conservative”.  Really?  Ask yourself these questions:

  • Would a TRUE Conservative vote to fund the EPA?
  • Would a TRUE Conservative be the Vice Chair of Center Aisle Caucus?
  • Would a TRUE Conservative be a member of the liberal Main Street Partnership?
  • Would a TRUE Conservative be the Chair of the Tuesday Group, a meeting of House liberal Republicans?
  • Would a TRUE Conservative be a Founding Member of the Bipartisan Congressional Retreat?
  • Would a TRUE Conservative vote to fund the abortion factory that is Planned Parenthood?
  • Would a TRUE Conservative donate to the vile chair of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Shultz?
  • Would a TRUE Conservative vote for a $2.4 Trillion increase in taxes (debt ceiling)?

Clearly the answer is ‘No’ for each of these questions, yet your conservative Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson voted or is responsible for each of the items above.

Defending Jo Ann Emerson = Defending Barack Obama:

Would a TRUE Conservative stand tall in front their constituents and defend their record or hide behind semantic attacks on their opponent?  (Are we going to need a milk carton?)

You’ve seen the gotcha video of her opponent at a forum in Poplar Bluff, MO.  Have you seen grainy cell-phone video of Jo Ann Emerson being asked tough questions by 2 of her constituents at the same time in a back-and-forth forum?

No.

Why?

Because to stand in front of such a forum and defend her record on the items above, she’d have to defend many items on Barack Obama’s march-to-socialism agenda:

  • To defend her record, she’d be defending Barack Obama and her vote to fund his EPA that regulates carbon dioxide, spilled milk and ditches on our farms.
  • To defend her record, she’d be defending Barack Obama’s attacks on the unborn and her vote to fund Planned Parenthood’s baby killing machine.
  • To defend her record, she’d be defending Barack Obama and her vote to take $Billions$ from taxpayers and hand them over to insurance giant AIG.
  • To defend her record, she’d be defending Barack Obama and her Cash for Clunkers vote to support the GM / Chrysler bailout that, likely illegally, handed the companies over to the UAW.
  • To defend her record, she’d be defending Barack Obama’s big-spending-agenda and her vote to increase the national debt by $2.4 Trillion (a tax increase) that is the largest increase in the history of the nation (that’s $7,000+ of debt she voted to give to every child born in 2012).

Union Support:

If the Tea Party urged you to cross the aisle and vote for a Democrat primary candidate, obvious that candidate is the best option to vote for items on the Tea Party agenda.  Of course.

That is exactly what happened in 2010 when the IBEW Union sent a letter to their members urging them to, disingenuously,  cross the aisle vote for Jo Ann Emerson in that primary.

The letter stated, “Over the past few years, myself and other labor representatives in the area, have sought out labor friendly Republican Candidates who will support our agenda and protect the legislative safeguards such as prevailing wage, immigration laws etc. that allow us to keep a level playing field with the non-union contractors.” [Emphasis Added]

Prevailing Wage legislation is what removes the level playing field; it doesn’t create it.  In theory, unions are fine, but when they need special legislation to allow them to compete, they are not conducive to the Free Market that made this country great.  If they are so great, they should be able to compete in the Free Market w/o special legislative safeguards.

I haven’t seen a 2012 version of that letter, but I suspect, with her union pension bill co-sponsorship, the sentiment is the same as it was in 2010.

Don’t Complain:

I certainly urge everyone who reads this discussion to study the issues and vote their conscious.  This is not a diatribe against Jo Ann Emesron’s character or personality.  It is simply a look at her record on some of the most important votes of the last 4 years.

However…

  • If you do vote for Jo Ann Emerson, don’t complain about the EPA, because she will vote to fund it.
  • If you do vote for Jo Ann Emerson, don’t complain about Planned Parenthood, because she will vote to fund it.
  • If you do vote for Jo Ann Emerson, don’t complain about the National Debt, because she will vote to increase it.
  • If you do vote for Jo Ann Emerson, don’t complain about Dodd-Frank, because she will vote to fund it.
  • If you do vote for Jo Ann Emerson, don’t complain about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, because she will vote to keep it.

Summary:

You’ve heard the tired cliché that the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.  Well, in southeast Missouri, surely we are not insane.

  • If you want more of the same in Washington, more spending, more big government, more business-strangling regulation, send Jo Ann Emerson back to Washington.
  • If you want far too many of your representative’s votes to support Barack Obama’s freedom crushing agenda, send Jo Ann Emerson Back to Washington.

For real change, if you want a Constitutional Conservative for a representative, you have to change who’s there.  If you want small and limited government, you have to change who’s there.

If you want to change Washington, you have to change who’s there.

If you want to change Washington, you have to change who’s there.

If you want to change Washington, you have to change who’s there.

The only way to change Washington… …is to change who’s there.

I like Jo Ann Emerson.  She has always been very nice to me, and Jo Ann Emerson is a fine woman.  She loves her country and cares about Missouri’s 8th District.

But, if a 16-year tenure is good enough for great TRUE Conservative Missouri State Representatives and Senators like Jason Crowell, Brian Nieves, Jane Cunningham and Jim Lembke, it’s good enough for our U.S. Congressional Representatives.

As the Chairman of the Cape County Tea Party, there was one vote that was most critical to me in the 112th Congress.  Jo Ann voted to raise the debt ceiling guaranteeing that the Federal Government would deficit-spend another $2.4 Trillion.  This is nothing more than a tax increase that you, me, our children, our grandchildren will have to pay for in countless measures of reduced standard of living.

This is the primary reason (along with others noted above) that I will vote this time for a chance to bring more a conservative voting record to our district; I will be voting for Bob Parker.

(This writing reflects my personal views and may or may not reflect the members of the Cape County Tea Party)
