Quote of the Day

"Sarah Palin's response to the Supreme Court's 5-to-4 ruling today upholding ObamaCare and the individual mandate was the most on target comment I read or heard -- "Obama Lies, Freedom Dies." 

The court rejected the administration's main argument that the individual mandate was constitutional based on the Commerce Clause. It rejected the administration's second argument that the mandate was constitutional under the Necessary and Proper Clause. 

However, five justices, including sadly Chief Justice John Roberts, concluded that the mandate was constitutional under Congress' power to tax. As Roberts wrote in his opinion, "Simply put, Congress may tax and spend." 

That's the problem in Washington, isn't it? There's already way too much spending, and ObamaCare won't help that. And it is a huge tax increase -- $500 billion over the next ten years. 

Here is where the lie comes in. You may recall Barack Obama's September 2009 interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. During a testy exchange, Obama repeatedly rejected Stephanopoulos' characterization of the mandate as a tax, saying, "I absolutely reject that notion." 
Unfortunately, that was the only notion the Supreme Court didn't reject, and the justices' decision is effectively calling Obama a lying tax-hiker."

Quote of the Day

"The odd confluence of the publication of the Maraniss revelations makes this declaration of executive privilege by Barack Obama almost nauseating because we now know something unequivocally:
The president is a liar.

How then do we believe anything he says when he asserts a privilege? This depends on trust but we can’t even respect him when he’s such a small time prevaricator. There’s a good chance he’s hiding something; onecould almost say a certainty. We don’t know where this will lead, but the chances are that it is nowhere good."

"Not every illegal immigrant who will benefit from Obama’s executive order is an anti-American murderer like Humberto Leal Garcia. But at the same time, they are not all patriotic honor students like President Obama and the liberal media would like us to believe."

Come out and Oppose the StartUp Act 2.0

Senator Warner has continued to publicly support legislation that will seriously hurt the American STEM worker. Sen. Warner will be hosting Office Hours throughout the next few weeks where you will have the opportunity to tell him that his immigration policies are taking away jobs from Americans.
Tell Sen. Warners staff that you oppose the StartUp Act 2.0, a bill that would create 50,000 new visas for foreign-born students in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields and 75,000 visas for immigrant entrepreneurs.
Supporters of the bill (big business owners and politicians) tell us that we need more foreign STEM workers because we dont have enough in the US today to compete with the world.
However, the truth is
-- 1.8 million Americans have engineering degrees but do not have an engineering job.
-- 101,000 American engineers are looking for a job and cannot find work at all.
-- Only about one third of native STEM professionals are currently employed in jobs closely related to their degrees.
-- Some two thirds of STEM workers are employed or are training for jobs in unrelated fields.
-- It is in the big businesses best interest to DECREASE wages by INCREASING the number of foreign workers who they can pay less than American STEM graduates.
Read about the study that proves we have no American-born STEM worker shortage.We talked extensively about the flaws of the bill in our webcast a few weeks ago including the creation of diploma mills and the influence of the billionaires club on immigration policy. Read my blog post here.

Marriage Matters

By Gary Bauer

Recent court decisions striking down state marriage laws as discriminatory have relied on flimsy research that found little or no impact on children raised in same-sex households. Two new studies are calling that research into question and reigniting the debate over same-sex "marriage."

Professor Mark Regnerus of the University of Texas evaluated nearly 3,000 young adults on "40 measures of social, emotional and relationship outcomes." According to theWashington Times, he found that children raised by homosexual men had negative outcomes in 19 categories, while children raised by lesbians had negative outcomes in 24 out of 40 categories. 

Professor Regnerus concedes that his study does not "tell us that same-sex parents are necessarily bad parents." But he insists that "The empirical claim that no notable differences exist must go." Ultimately, his study reaffirms that children do best when raised in stable homes with a mother and a father. 

A second study by Assistant Professor Loren Marks of Louisiana State University sought to examine the research underpinning the American Psychological Association's support of same-sex parenting. Marks found several problems with the APA's research and concluded, "The lack of high-quality data leaves the most significant questions [about gay parenting] unaddressed and unanswered."
These new studies certainly won't end the culture war playing out in our courts and in the court of public opinion. But this much is clear: You don't need a PhD to know that children do best when raised by a mother and a father. Common sense, basic biology and thousands of years of human history make that abundantly clear. 

But if the left insists on fundamentally redefining the institution of marriage, the foundation of healthy families and societies, then the left bears the burden of demonstrating that it is beneficial for the children likely to be involved in this radical experiment. These new studies clearly indicate that the militant homosexual movement is a long way from meeting that standard.

Flag Day reminder

What Moochelle really thinks about Old Glory...

Quote of the Day

"Public schools no more honor the flag than they do the Constitution when they teach that it is a form of freedom of speech to desecrate the flag – nor does a Congress that refuses to protect Old Glory. It is one thing for Congress to hide behind high and lofty magnanimous verbiage pursuant to how the Constitution allows for such behavior, but it is another to we who view such behavior as spitting on the graves of those buried in Arlington National Cemetery and in the faces of our ancestors. How does the freedom to burn our flag translate into respect for what it stands for? How should we feel when the president and members of Congress malign those of us who take exception with illegals who fly our flag upside down, cast it under foot and burn it?"

Bush And Obama A Matter Of Degrees

Quote of the Day

“Among all the ill-conceived ideas in Obamacare, there is a special excise tax on U.S. manufacturers of medical devices. In the name of health care reform, everything from knee replacements to artificial hearts will cost more. The $30 billion raised from the tax is supposed to help fund Obamacare, the costs of which are already skyrocketing.

Republicans in the House of Representatives brought up for a vote yesterday legislation to repeal the tax. The repeal passed 270 to 146. Virtually every Republican voted for the repeal. They were joined by 37 Democrats, who broke with the White House on the issue.

Sadly, the repeal is likely to die in Harry Reid’s Senate, where most good ideas expire. Nonetheless, I hope the vote at least takes place. Every Senator should be forced to go on the record so that the voters understand the Democrats’ love of taxes and their war on American businesses.”

Obama Disrespects Air Force Academy Graduates

The Colorado Springs Gazette published an article about this event.

"I just wanted to pass on a little info in case some of you were not aware of this. Yesterday was the Air force Academy graduation ceremony. My friend from Texas had just arrived and we drove down the road to watch the Thunderbirds air show after the ceremony was finished. Most of you know Pres. Obama spoke at the ceremony and handed out the diplomas. When this finished it was time for the Thunderbirds to fly.

There was one maneuver then they disappeared. A man standing by me called a friend at Peterson Field and found out that the air show was halted because Obama wanted to leave. A helicopter soon appeared and flew around in a circular pattern above where we were - basically doing reconnaissance as Obama's motor-cade was exiting the Air Force Academy.

He was going to Denver to do some more campaigning since Colorado is a swing state. After he left the Thunderbirds came back and continued the show for the graduates. 

Think about this. Obama comes to a graduation, speaks , etc., then decides to leave before the Thunderbirds can complete their air show. They had to fly around, & waste fuel. Thousands of people - the graduating cadets, parents, friends, observers in the vicinity parked in lots waiting to see them fly, inconvenienced, so Obama - his "highness' could leave to go campaign in Denver! How disrespectful of EVERYONE in attendance. It would have taken only about 20-30 minutes more time to stay until the fly-over was finished thereby honoring the graduates, Thunderbirds and the military in general.

However, this narcissistic disgrace of a 'Commander-in-Chief" had to inconvenience everyone and leave interrupting the ceremony fly-over because everything is about him. I was disgusted by this and so was everyone else standing around near us.

I hope this info gets passed on so others can learn how disrespectful this Pres. is toward the military. Not too many who witnessed this will be voting for him."

Why Virginia Republicans Need a Convention in 2013 – Not a Primary

By Peyton Knight

Before I get to the topic in the headline, I want to give a heartfelt THANK YOU to the Madison County Republican Women (and men!) for all of your support, prayers and well-wishes throughout my campaign for Republican State Central Committee.  In case you didn’t hear, we won!  This was a great victory for all of us who believe in constitutional principles and conservative values, and I couldn’t be more excited about representing you for the next four years on the Committee. 

Now, as they say, the real work begins!

On June 15 the new State Central Committee (SCC) will convene for the first time in Richmond.  One of the most important things we will do at this meeting is vote on whether to nominate our statewide candidates next year (governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general) by holding a Convention or a Primary.

Now, as you know, I unambiguously ran as a strong supporter of Conventions over Primaries.  And from talking to many of you, as well as many others throughout our fifth district, it’s clear to me that a substantial majority of our Republican Party faithful also prefer Conventions.  It’s also clear to me that folks want to hold a Convention instead of a Primary in 2013.

Before I explain why I, and many others, strongly prefer Conventions, I think you deserve to know a little bit of the history behind why this is a hot topic of conversation right now.  Because Lord knows, lots of information and misinformation will be flying around soon!

Back in October 2011, the SCC decided to prematurely vote to hold a Primary in 2013 -- more than two years before the election.  Now, I say “prematurely” because normally, the incoming SCC (i.e. those of us meeting on June 15) would make that decision.  When the issue came up in 2011, folks on that SCC were advised against trying to bind the hands of the new SCC in this manner.  They were told that their decision could be overturned by the new 2012 SCC.  And I’m sure that some of the folks who pushed the premature decision thought that if they put the 2012 SCC in this unfair position, they could later claim that the “rules were being changed” if the new SCC opted for a Convention.

I think it’s worth pointing out that many of the past SCC members who led the charge for the premature Primary vote were voted out of office in our recent district conventions.  Clearly, our Republican voters didn’t like what had happened and took appropriate action.

But boring history lessons and procedural matters aside, here are just a few of the reasons why I strongly believe a Convention is much better than a Primary for our Republican Party in Virginia:

1. Primaries allow Democrats and other non-Republicans to pick our candidates for us.  There is no party registration in Virginia.  That means Democrats and other non-Republicans are not only permitted, but frequently encouraged to vote in our Republican Primaries and distort the outcome in their favor.  Their votes cancel out the votes of many of our hard-working, principled and faithful Republicans.  Why on earth would we want that?  Conventions, on the other hand, make certain that only Republicans are choosing our Republican nominees for higher office. 

2. A statewide Primary would cost Virginia taxpayers upwards of $3 million.  As fiscally conservative Republicans, it would be flat-out hypocritical for us to charge taxpayers $3 million for our Party’s nomination contest.  This is especially true in these current times of unbridled government spending and over-taxation (courtesy of Barack Obama).  A Convention, on the other hand, would run in the ballpark of $200,000 to $400,000, and be paid for by our Party.  We can’t expect to lead our Commonwealth and our nation toward fiscal conservatism if we fail to lead by example when it comes to our own elections.

3. Primaries tend to leave our eventual nominees broke and wounded.  In Conventions, the campaigning and advertising is generally restricted to fellow Republicans.  Conversely, in Primaries, campaigns advertise to the greater public, where Independents and other Republican-leaning voters are subjected to all the “mud slinging” between our candidates.  This hurts our eventual nominees when it comes time for the general election.  In addition, Conventions allow our candidates to spend much less money, and save millions of dollars for what they really need it for:  going after the Democrats in the general election!

4. Conventions energize our activist and volunteer base, giving us a grassroots army to help win elections.  In essence, Conventions bring our volunteers forward, and force them to organize their ground game and get their troops motivated and active.  This gives us a HUGE head start on the Democrats once the general election rolls around.

5. History proves that Conventions give us the best chance of winning the governor’s mansion.  Consider that Virginia has elected six Republican Governors since Reconstruction:
  • Linwood Holton in 1969
  • Mills Godwin in 1973
  • John Dalton in 1977
  • George Allen in 1993
  • Jim Gilmore in 1997
  • Bob McDonnell in 2009

All of these Republican Governors were nominated in a Convention, except for Jim Gilmore, who ran unopposed in a Primary, so the method of nomination in his case didn’t really matter. 

On the other hand, each time we’ve held a competitive Primary to elect our Party’s nominee for governor (in 1989 and 2005), we LOST in the general election.  The numbers don’t lie.  Primaries doom us in the general election.  Conventions make us winners, and for many of the commonsense reasons stated above.

Again, I can’t thank everyone at MCRW for your support – and for all of the incredible work you ALL do to advance our shared cause. I could go on with more reasons why Conventions are better for us than Primaries, but I don’t want to take up the whole newsletter! We’re all in this together, and I value your advice, ideas, expertise and input immensely. God bless you all, and I hope to see you soon!

"After enduring three nights of backhanded compliments from a political enemy in sheep’s clothing, Mr. Obama must have felt like he slept in a cement mixer upon learning Wisconsin voters repudiated every aspect of his radical ideology by affirming their support for Scott Walker, the governor who has tamed the union dragon, eliminated a $3 Billion deficit, brought prosperity back to the state and lowered unemployment to roughly 6% without so much as raising taxes or printing a single dollar."

New Novel Explores UFOs and Government Cover-ups

J. Dori Callahan’s Push Back Time fictionalizes the real events of JAL 1628 in 1986

RAPIDAN, Va. – J. Dori Callahan’s new suspense novel Push Back Time (published by AuthorHouse), which her readers have likened to a Tom Clancy novel, takes real events and turns them into a compelling fictional story.

In 1986, Japan Airlines flight 1628 (JL 1628) diverted from its flight path because of a suspected unidentified flying object (UFO) encounter. Callahan has adapted that event into a story, using information from her husband, who was personally involved in the real-world investigation. In it, her realistic characters react to the event, and Callahan uses the event to show readers how government bureaucracies actually function.

Callahan believes there is a need for a book presenting the real way government agencies operate. “More and more there are UFO sightings in the world,” she says, “and the way the government officials are cheating the taxpayers today must be explored.”

About the Author
J. Dori Callahan was born in Kentucky and moved to Illinois, where she completed her education in computer science and business management. She began working for the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) in the air traffic field. Callahan began her long career in the FAA as a controller in the Enroute center located in Aurora, Ill., eventually moving to the automation department. Her 26 year career skyrocketed in automation.

Callahan became one of the first women in the FAA GM-15 management ranks in Washington, D.C. She was very influential in establishing the FAA's SOAR program, a program that identified potential women management candidates and provided mentoring opportunities to assist women and minorities in management identified positions during the 1990s.

Callahan is married to John J. Callahan, and is presently vice president and C.E.O. for Liberty Tax Service in Culpeper, Va. She resides in Rapidan, Va., with her husband. She is also the author of Journey Through a Metamorphosis, and has written numerous political articles as a newspaper journalist.

Like "Social Victory Center" on facebook!

"At the beginning of May, the Republican National Committee launched a powerful new Facebook application called the “Social Victory Center,” which helps Republicans connect with each other. Perhaps more importantly, it automatically updates users’ Facebook pages when they read highlighted articles, or sign up for political events. The app also provides online coordination for phone bank activities, helping volunteers pitch in to contact independent voters in swing states. It is, by general acclamation, the most sophisticated political application ever deployed across a social media network."
