McCain-Palin Winners, Craig Williams

My friend Rebekah, an expert in "YouTube" politics wrote about why McCain-Palin will win. Beneath the following paragraph is Craig William's fine piece on McCain's excellent choice.

[Note: Thanks to Eric Dondero for posting a piece of mine at his site:

"Everyone I have blogged with on Youtube is over the moon about the ticket. McCain reached out to PUMA's, Just Say No Deal and other HRC dissenters and did what Obama did not do himself. He promised he would have female members in his cabinet and he demonstrated his word by his choise of Sarah Palin. I know he picked up conservatives with his selection. I am a PETA member and so are others on the Youtube forum. I tell them that is something we can work on and negotiate with her. She is more American than "apple pie". A wife, mother, public servant and a nice lady embodying all the principles and attributes of hard working Americans.She is blue collar background too. No, elitist element here. It shows that McCain was a Maverick again. Some conservatives I associate with on Youtube were not going to vote and now they are voting the McCain/Palin ticket."

Craig Williams Praises McCain Choice of Sarah Palin
as Vice Presidential Running Mate
Williams says Palin has been his top pick for Vice President since meeting with her
twice over the summer to discuss energy crisis, other policy issues

DREXEL HILL – Craig Williams, the Republican Congressional candidate in Pennsylvania’s 7th District, today praised Senator John McCain’s selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential running mate. Williams has been a strong proponent of Palin for Vice President and met with her privately one-on-one at the National Governor’s Association conference in Philadelphia this summer and again during his trip to Alaska to promote energy independence.

“A maverick for reform has picked a maverick for reform as his running mate,” said Williams. “She is committed to good government and ran as a reform candidate for Governor of Alaska in 2006, defeating an incumbent of her own party in the primary. Her willingness to stand up to the political establishment – even the leadership of her own party – is very much in the mold of John McCain.”

“I think she will appeal to voters as a fresh face and Washington outsider who brings a lot of energy to the campaign,” said Williams. “While a lot of the initial media attention will likely focus on the fact that she is a woman, people are going to like her record as a reformer, fiscal conservative, and environmentally conscious executive. She is an excellent choice with experience as a government administrator – something no one else on the Presidential ballot possesses.”

Williams’ enthusiasm for Palin was shared by two prominent supporters of his campaign – Delaware County Chair Linda Cartisano and Delaware County Councilwoman Christine Fizzano Cannon.

“This is a historic moment for the Republican Party, the first time we have had a woman on the Presidential ticket,” said Cartisano. “I am so proud that it is going to be the Republican Party that breaks the glass ceiling and puts a woman in the vice presidency. What I like most about Sarah is her toughness – she says what’s on her mind and is not afraid to stand up to the powers that be for what is right. She has a real independent streak that I think is going to resonate with suburban voters.”

“Sarah Palin has an impressive record in Alaska of being pro-environment, cutting waste in government, and addressing the energy crisis,” said Fizzano Cannon, who led the Republican ticket in votes in her run for Delaware County Council in 2007. “It’s not going to be ‘Washington-style politics as usual’ with her straight talk and reform agenda.”

Craig Williams is running for Congress the 7th Congressional District of Pennsylvania, comprising most of Delaware County and parts of Montgomery and Chester Counties. Williams is a former federal prosecutor, Marine combat veteran, and former active duty Deputy Legal Counsel to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He lives in Concord Township, Delaware County, with his wife Jennifer, daughter and two step-children.

The 7th District is his home – where he lives, where his kids go to school, where he pays taxes, where he attends church, and where he intends to spend the rest of his life.

PALIN: NICKNAME WAS "Sarah Barracuda"

"Sarah Palin will be a critical factor in all the close races in Pennsylvania this year." (Go to bottom for great Sarah Palin story)

If you want to read an absolute knock-out piece about the woman they called "Sarah Barracuda" in her days as a state championship basketball player, check the following on Gov. Palin: Tomorrow: a picture of Sarah in her basketball uniform.

I sent the following urgent message to campaign managers of five PA candidates for congressional offices.

Alicia, sorry I didn't make it to the football game. In fact, I didn't even make it to the McCain Rally. I have been in the most unusual days of my life. Last night I even talked to the BBC in London re Palin and to many other news outlets and answered hundreds of e-mails, put up new posts re: Sarah. I love both you and Melissa, and I will continue to do what I can.

Get Sarah back here in western PA! Mac will camp her in PA, OH, VA, FL, and MN. It is the ball game.

The commercials and even the tee-shirts (more to come on that) will help.

Alicia and Melissa, Toni, Craig, Tom, and Marina, tie your wagon to McCain-Palin, especially the Palin half I know, it isn't done, but it must be done this time. Alicia, thanks for the salute on Sarah. I hope her oldest daughter (the one holding the baby at the Dayton speech) will come to PA to campaign for Melissa, Toni, Tom Manion, Craig Williams, and Marina Kats.

I hope Todd and the kids will do the same. Her son will be in Iraq on Sept. 11. Stay real close to Sarah Palin. Get in pictures with her. Point out how you (all of you) agree with Sarah on everything. Do Palin-Hart, Palin-Williams, Palin-Kats, and Palin-Gilhooley press releases.

Sarah is Obama's worst nightmare. He's a windbag, and she's a breath of fresh air.

Sarah Story: Her eldest daughter, Bristol, was going to an event in Alaska, and asked her mother for $35 dollars for gas.

Sarah: "Didn't your dad just give you $35 yesterday?"

Bristol: "Yeah, mom, he did, but I spent it on getting my legs waxed."

Sarah (shaking her head in maternal disbelief): "Legs waxed? Bristol, last time I looked we had lots of razors around here!"

Palin: Obama's, Biden's Worst Nightmare

"Biden is a windbag. Sarah Palin is a breath of fresh air."

On the Plain choice: I had a short post up at 2:30 a.m. that said I had information (from Sharon and one other) that Gov. Palin and her two teen-age daughters and perhaps others had flown from Anchorage to Dayton, where she would be named Friday as McCain's running mate. The story came from people who put two-and-two together, and the media was still falling all over itself at 11 a.m. this morning.

Charles Krauthammer said at 11 McCain should choose Fred Thompson. Good God!

At that point, I said to my wife we already had enough old white guys (Biden, McCain) and we needed a woman, preferably Sarah . I went to sleep Friday morning believing it was Sarah and woke up to her picture on the screen on FOX (and others).

I never bought the Campaign's decoy statement that, well, everybody on the list was flying in (Romney, Pawlenty, Huckabee, the Easter Bunny, Peter Rabbit). It made no sense, but many reporters bought it. Did they believe McCain was going to have a parade of also-rans?

The national media -- generally a bunch of lazy oafs -- was mad on Friday because nobody told them first. Charles Cameron of FOX was the only one early this a.m. who did a process of elimination and came up with Sarah. Then, the other people at FOX and CNN (and the idiots at MSNBC) dropped the ball.

They thought it couldn't be Sarah because she wasn't on their list . . . and so how could he dare to nominate this (wonderful) woman they knew nothing about. Amazing.

When she gave the speech -- she had given others the media had ignored -- everyone knew immediately "how" McCain could select her. With the speech and that amazing family -- the working-class husband, the beautiful, unintimidated children -- Sarah blew everyone out of the water.

Gee, where's she been?" Good question. Sometimes the very best things are invisible even though they're right in front of us.

Sarah is Barack Obama's worst nightmare. She is an ethical person. She is extremely tough physically, psychologically, and spiritually. She will beat Biden up very badly. He's a windbag, and she's a breath of fresh air.

Biden got 9,000 votes in the Primary. Mrs. Clinton got 18 million. Go figure.

Sarah Palin Belongs to America

Last night at about 2:45 a.m., this blog broke the news (with help from Sharon Caliendo in Oklahoma) that John McCain would name Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to his ticket. I've been writing on -- and advocating -- Sarah for V-P for a year-and-a-half. When I discovered that Sarah was in fact reading the blog posts about her, I started "talking directly" to her. At one point, I observed that she was the ultimate "Daughter of Alaska." Then, I said, "But now, Sarah you belong to America." I got that right.

{I was just talking to Zoe on the BBC from London about Gov. Palin! Yikes.]

Above in Picture: Gov. Sarah Palin with husband Todd and daughters Piper, Willow, and Bristol. In the past three months I've had nearly 8,000 "hits" on one of my sites. Today, I will go over 10,000 -- in one day on one site! Thanks to visitors. Keep returning, and you'll have the most relevant information about Sarah, who's a regular reader of my blogs. God bless you, Sarah! Soon I'll put up material about how Pennsy

My political buddy Sharon Caliendo of Norman, OK, broke the Palin Story last night to me shortly before 3 a.m., and I took a chance on put it on my blogs then. Much more will be on here today and tomorrow about a thoroughly remarkable human being, Sarah Heath Palin.

If you want to have fun, go over to a truly ecstatic web site, Adam Brickley's at Adam has been in total managerial charge of the national Draft Palin for VP effort. Adam just turned 21 (!!!!!!!!!!!).

I'm so delighted that four of Sarah's children are able to participate in this historic moment. Piper (age 7 now?) is going to become a national media darling. I believe Sarah will make a great vice-president. I also believe she will make a great President of the United States. In my somewhat hyperbolic way, I called her "Mt. Rushmore Material." (But I don't think that's really hyperbole.)

Jack Kelly, national security analyst and columnist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Toledo Blade -- and a great buddy -- wrote the following piece about Gov. Sarah Heath Palin. Jack paid me the compliment of being the one who recommended Sarah to him. God bless the USA. If you want to have fun, go to and you will see the first case of Blog Ecstasy in recorded history.
By Jack Kelly
"Who? When?
Republicans including, I imagine, Sen. McCain himself are asking these questions about his selection of a vice presidential candidate.Ideally, a presidential candidate wants a running mate who will help him or her win the election, and (maybe) to govern afterwards. But most will settle for a veep who isn't a drag on the ticket, as Dan Quayle was for the first President Bush.
Traditionally, a presidential nominee has chosen a running mate to balance the ticket
geographically, or to appease a faction of the party. The most successful example of this was when John F. Kennedy picked Lyndon Johnson, though neither liked the other, and LBJ joined the ticket only because he thought Kennedy would lose.Bill Clinton broke with this tradition when he chose another young (purported) moderate from a neighboring southern state. By picking Al Gore, he hoped to reinforce his campaign theme of generational change.
Which way will Sen. McCain go?
The potential running mates most often discussed have downsides nearly as great as their upsides. Gov. Tim Pawlenty helps only in Minnesota, and not enough, according to current polls, to make a difference there. Sen. McCain's friend Sen. Joe Lieberman would bring in some moderate Democrats, but could further antagonize conservatives already suspicious of Sen. McCain.
Gov. Romney would have little appeal to working class whites unhappy with Sen. Obama, and evangelicals fret about that Mormon thing. A Huckabee nomination would irritate economic and foreign policy conservatives as much as it would please evangelicals.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is a rising star. But he's only 36, and he's been governor for less than a year.There is one potential running mate who has virtually no down side. Those conservatives who've heard of her were delighted to learn that McCain advance man Arthur Culvahouse was in Alaska recently, because they surmised he could only be there to discuss the vice presidential nomination with Gov. Sarah Palin.
At 44, Sarah Louise Heath Palin is both the youngest and the first female governor in Alaska's relatively brief history as a state. She's also the most popular governor in America, with an approval rating that has bounced around 90 percent.
This is due partly to her personal qualities. When she was leading her underdog Wasilla high school basketball team to the state championship in 1982, her teammates called her "Sarah Barracuda" because of her fierce competitiveness.Two years later, when she won the "Miss Wasilla" beauty pageant, she was also voted "Miss Congeniality" by the other contestants.Sarah Barracuda. Miss Congeniality.
Fire and nice.
A happily married mother of five who is still drop dead gorgeous. And smart to boot.But it's mostly because she's been a crackerjack governor, a strong fiscal conservative and a ferocious fighter of corruption, especially in her own party.Ms. Palin touches other conservative bases, some of which Sen. McCain has been accused of rounding.
Track, her eldest son, enlisted in the Army last Sept. 11. She's a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association who hunts, fishes and runs marathons. A regular churchgoer, she's staunchly pro-life. Kimberley Strassel of the Wall Street Journal said Sen. McCain should run against a corrupt, do-nothing Congress, a la Harry Truman.
If he should choose to do so, Gov. Palin would make an excellent partner "The landscape is littered with the bodies of those who have crossed Sarah," pollster Dave Dittman told the Weekly Standard's Fred Barnes.
Sen. Barack Obama's support has plunged recently among white women. Many Hillary Clinton supporters accuse him -- I think unfairly -- of being sexist. Having Sarah Palin on the ticket could help Sen. McCain appeal to these disgruntled Democrats.Running mates usually aren't named until the convention.
But if Sen. McCain should name Gov. Palin earlier, it would give America more time to get to know this extraordinary woman. And because she's at least a dozen feature stories waiting to be written, she could help him dominate the news between now and the conventions.Another reason for selecting Sarah Palin early would be to force Barack Obama to make a mistake.
He'd have to rule out choosing someone like Virginia Sen. Jim Webb as his running mate, for fear of exacerbating charges of sexism. And if he chose a woman other than Hillary, the impression Democrats are wimpy would be intensified.

"Would I consider a blanket commitment to meet with the leaders [Obama wants to meet with] in the first year of my presidency? Absolutely, positively no." (Joe Biden before he became BHO's V-P choice)

In the "NoBama" effort, we are getting a tremendous number of requests (thousands!) from people, especially disaffected Democrats, who want to help John McCain -- and need to know what to do next. Bloggers should consider reprinting this on their own sites.

I'm asking everyone to join Clintons4McCain, NoBama Mission, and RealDemocratsUSA (all pro-McCain). If they want, people should e-mail me (at ), and I promise to provide specific information within 24 hours of whom to contact and what to do. Please provide your state and the nearest city. You are very much wanted and appreciated.

Also helpful: on, there is a link for volunteers in the Citizens for McCain effort. Kathy Morrison's sites are very useful, including: and If you're a blogger and want to join NoBama Mission Bloggers (and get USEFUL material on blog tactics), e-mail me at: If you e-mail, I will get back to you within a reasonable period of time.

In the meantime, the best thing you can do is to write e-mails to friends, family, and associates. Communicate your support for Sen. John McCain. You don't have to give a lot of reasons for your backing McCain -- one or two will do. Let them know they're not alone.

You might emphasize McCain's experience and, if you were a Hillary backer, highlight Mrs. Clinton's statement that she and McCain had "a lifetime of experience" and BHO had only "a speech he delivered in 2002." You can also use President Clinton's statement that John McCain "has given everything he could to his country -- except his life."

Frankly, John McCain is an authentic American hero -- and Barack Obama is a classic Chicago politician. 'Nough said.

If you want hard-hitting material on the election, keep visting this site. Also, go to, which is devoted to separating fact from fiction.

We intend to win this election, but we can't do it without your help. Thanks -- and God bless.

"If JFK gave his Inaugural Address now, with its emphasis on country and liberty, he'd be booed off the stage in Denver."

Hillary Clinton is a closet McCain Supporter. Whom do you really believe she will vote for on November 4? Senator Clinton, a long-time admirer of John McCain, has repeatedly said she believes Senator Obama is not ready to for the presidency because he lacks the experience necessary to lead. She said,"In this election we need a nominee who can pass the Commander in Chief test. ... Senator McCain will bring a time of experience to the campaign. I will bring a lifetime of experience and Senator Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002. I think that is a significant difference."

Dear Friends: I wrote the following to "Athena," a Hillary Supporter (and apparently, a FORMER Democrat) who is now backing John McCain. She does not believe the Democratic Party is going to be reformed in her lifetime. She is dead right.

I hope Republican candidates in all states will say something similar to what I did to Athena. THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THEM AS INDIVIDUALS. THEY WANT THEIR VOTE BUT NOT THEIR INPUT.

Candidates like Steve Sauerberg (Illinois, against Dick Durbin) and Jeff Beatty (Massachusetts, against John Kerry) must provide some hard truths to Democrats in their state. If the truth hurts, so be it. Truth is always superior to fantasies and illusions.

I'm going around telling people to LEAVE the Democrat Party, to become independents or Republicans. To my amazement, a good many of them are, including Athena. If Steve and Jeff can convince many Democrats to do the same, they will win. If they don't, they will lose. Letter to Athena follows:

Athena, I'll work with you anyway you want. Heck, you can have a kidney if you need one! is the key. My own congressman, Jason Altmire, represents a district where Hillary won two-to-one (plus). She won my county (Beaver, home of Joe Namath and Mike Ditka) by 28,000 to 12,000. All my relatives voted for her. Jason Altmire got $10,000 from Barack Obama (see dncreform). Guess who Jason Altmire is backing?

Patrick Murphy, congressman and beloved of Moveon, which HATES HRC has a district that also went for Hillary by two-to-one. He got $18,000 from BHO. He was one of the first in the country to back Obama.

They believe Democrats in PA are stupid. They believe they will get away with it, and they probably will. PA Dems (some) believe JFK is still running things. But the issues confronting this country are life-and-death, and it's no longer okay for people to vote like robots.

The Democratic Party has become a refuge for people who are cynical, unpatriotic, and committed to a form of socialism that's little more than vote-buying. The America the Democrats see has more in common with Hugo Chavez than with George Washington or John F. Kennedy.

If JFK gave his inaugural address, with its emphasis on country and liberty, he'd be booed off the stage in Denver. Good people know that, and that's why they want nothing to do with modern Democratic Party.

It ticks me off. It almost breaks my heart.

Hillary's colleagues in the Senate deserted her in droves. WV went for Hillary by a huge margin, but good ole Jay Rockefeller backed Obama. Bob Casey did the same thing in Pennsylvania.

As I said, who exactly is going to reform the Democratic Party? It's much, much worse than people think. There's contempt for the voters.

How could HRC ever have gotten the nomination when states voted massively for her and all the SDs (Massachusetts, esp.) went for Obama. Those facts make Hillary's speech in Denver all the more disgraceful. Thankfully, her manic, self-aborbed campaign is finally over. Hopefully, she'll spend her free time working on character issues, the ones that led her to choose Party over Country.

There, Athena, you got me wound up. Congrats for you on McCain. He's an American hero and an honorable man -- and Obama isn't.

Democrat's Universal Health-Care Scam

Hilary's health care plan and Barack's plan are both scams. They'll drive up the cost of health care and drive down the quality of care. That's not the way they present their cockamamy schemes/scams.

I just told a PUMA ("Party Unity My A-s") from GA that's on board with McCain that it is always a bad idea to look at any politician as perfect or anything close to perfect. They all have strengths and weaknesses. Just saying that should not cause people (Hillaryites) to break into tears or a fit of anger (you don't do either).

I disagree with Hillary's approach to health care, and it's not because I don't believe everyone shouldn't have health care. I'll send you an article I read in The Economist, and it talks about how millions of Americans are going overseas (India, Southeast Asia, South America) to GOOD hospitals, better than most here, to get care that sometimes costs one-fifth as much. It is a form of early competition that is driving down prices a little in the U.S.

Health care in the U.S. COSTS TOO MUCH. My wife suffered a stroke in 1991, and it has been a challenge to say the least. (She's on Medicare as well as Medicare prescription drug.) She takes many medications. We save $800 a year by getting prescription drugs by mail order -- same drugs, no co-payment (except for one drug), delivered right to our door.

Almost everybody you see going to the pharmacy could save significant money. But they don't because "the insurance pays for it all." Well, the insurance fairy doesn't just dole out money. The costs come out of people's pockets -- yours and mine.

Sharon, you didn't hear Hillary (or Obama) tell you about anything I just mentioned. I'm talking about getting health costs down by tens of billions, but there is no real incentive for people to do what WE (wife and I) DO. Also, there is a lot of fraud in Medicare, but nobody really wants to stop it.

I believe John McCain will do these things. If they aren't done and we just declare "universal health care," there will be a financial and health care emergency soon after.

Why are big hospitals (Obama's wife worked at one) pouring money into Obama's campaign? Because they think they'll make less money under him? Why can't somebody like me appear at a Town Hall with Obama (or Hillary) and discuss the fact that I just showed how to save the people in the U.S., say, $50 billion a year? Let me send more people overseas to get GOOD care (until U.S. hospitals drop their prices), and I'll get those savings up to $150 billion. And I'm not even running for anything.

Oh, we couldn't do what I just suggested about a real debate. We need a bunch of adoring cheerleaders in the audience instead.

Who's going to pay for the new doctors, nurses, technicians, supplies, and facilities we need for universal health care? You are, not the insurance fairy -- or "the government," which will pay by using your money. And what will drive costs down? Nothing.

If you are sick and need good treatment under universal care, will you get it? Do they in Canada? No, they don't. They wait years for treatment you would get here in a week.

Does John McCain know these things? I believe he does. In fact, even a dimwit like Obama knows the score, but he pretends not to. It's much easier to blame everything on George Bush.

I do wish I were the nominee for President. Like Reagan, I would demand that I get to take a nap after lunch everyday. :-) Thanks for replying.

If I were HRC, I know damn well what I'd do tonight (in her speech at the convention). Sharon, what would you do?

Vets for Freedom, Tom Manion

If you scroll down, you'll find the story about the important effort by the Pete Hegseth and his "Vets for Freedom" to derail the candidacy of political elitist Barack H. Obama. Please take a look and support the Vets for Freedom. It's critical that the ad also run in Pennsylvania, and the Vets need our support to make that happen. Please go to: to see how you can help.

Michelle: They can write all the "bring-us-together" speeches they want for Michelle Obama. But she will always be the angry woman in her 40s who "for the first time in [her] adult life [was] proud of [her] country" when her husband began winning presidential primaries. Michelle, please go visit America.

Get more information about the important PA campaign being waged by Marine Tom Manion against left-wing lapdog Patrick Murphy by going to: Patrick Murphy did serve (as a lawyer) in Iraq. Since he's come back, he's been busy cultivating Nancy Pelosi's favor and undermining the missions of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The extreme Left, funded largley by George Soros-types, loves Patrick Murphy.

Dear Patriot:

My name is Janet Manion. My husband and my son are both Marines, who served their country honorably and proudly. Tom just retired from the Corps this year, and you can probably imagine our pride when our son, Travis, donned the uniform.

Then our son went off to war, and on April 29, 2007, Travis was killed by enemy sniper fire in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. He died fighting courageously against an enemy ambush.

Yes, the tears still come every day.And as you can imagine, both Tom and I miss Travis terribly. We want to make sure that his passion and commitment lives on, which is why Tom announced his candidacy to run for Congress in Pennsylvania.

While Tom is the first to admit that he draws his inspiration from Travis, his qualifications are significant in their own right. He spent thirty years of his life serving his country as a Marine, and has a successful business career in the private sector.

Based on Travis’ heroic story, and Tom’s dedication to continue serving America, you might think his election to Congress would be easy. Well, nothing could be further from the truth.

Tom’s opponent, first-term Congressman Patrick Murphy is most remembered as the Iraqi veteran who became an instant darling of the liberals and Hollywood crowd for his denunciation of America’s stand in the War on Terror.

Not surprisingly, Murphy has also become a loud supporter of Barack Obama - - and Obama’s cut and run strategy for Iraq. Liberal supporters all across America are opening up their checkbooks and writing large checks to Patrick Murphy. In fact, he has more than $2,200,000 on hand.

I hope you’ll take just a few minutes to watch this compelling story, entitled “Letters from Travis.”But I hope you will do much more than just watch… I am asking that you contribute immediately to Tom’s campaign, so he can reach voters with his message of putting America first.

You can be sure the anti-war, pro-surrender liberal groups will keep the money flowing for Patrick Murphy. I strongly urge you to make sure Tom’s campaign is equally well financed.I urge you to watch this video, then take a moment to support Tom’s campaign… and help us all continue the fight for America’s future.

Thank you, Janet

Vets for Freedom Are Saying Yes to the Surge, NO to Obama

Vets take Obama to taskBy: Mike Allen August 26, 2008 12:33 PM EST,

DENVER — The conservative group Vets for Freedom is launching a $1.1 million ad buy during the Democratic National Convention, using video of Iraq war veterans to take Barack Obama to task for not giving the surge policy sufficient credit for improvement in battleground conditions.
The 30-second spot, called “I Am the Surge,” features three Iraq war veterans who served in the surge of U.S. military forces into Iraq: Gabriel Herrera, David Thul and Travis Quinlan.
The ad will run in Denver and Minnesota during the conventions, and for the next four weeks in the swing states of Ohio, Michigan, Virginia and Colorado.
Vets for Freedom Chairman Pete Hegseth, a decorated former Army infantry platoon leader in Baghdad, said in a statement: “Vets for Freedom will not stand by and let the incredible progress of our troops go unnoticed by the American public and lawmakers from either side of the aisle. Hegseth is at the convention to tell lawmakers, delegates and the press about his observation during a recent return to Iraq.
Denver drama: Clintons try for second act
“It is essential that our top legislators — regardless of party — understand the importance of victory in Iraq, the consequences of defeat and the success of the surge,” Hegseth said. “Sen. Obama has said that he would still oppose the surge if given another opportunity and has pointed to every outside factor but the surge to explain improvements in Iraq. We hope he will listen to the veterans who have served there and support this important resolution for the sake of the troops.” The group describes itself as a nonpartisan organization established by combat veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and as the largest Iraq and Afghanistan veterans organization in America.

Here is the text of the ad:
Herrera: I am a sergeant …
Thul: U.S. Army staff sergeant …
Quinlan: Combat infantryman …
Herrera: And I am …
Thul: I am …
Quinlan: And I am the surge.
Herrera: Sen. Barack Obama credits the improvements in Iraq to anything but the surge … Quinlan: But I know the surge worked. I was there … I saw Al Qaeda decimated.
Thul: And watched the Iraqi government grow stronger …
Herrera: Sens. Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham have introduced a resolution.
Thul: Recognizing the success of the surge …
Herrera: So call Sen. Obama, and tell him to support our success by supporting Senate Resolution 636.
Thul: Vets for Freedom is responsible for the content of this advertising.

National Support for PA Candidates

Many Republican candidates for the Senate and House deserve national support, and I'm doing what I can to make sure they get it. The following message to national leaders focuses on two Senate candidates (Dr. Steve Sauerberg against Obama sycophant Dick Durbin in Illinois and Jeff Beatty against Obama Supporter John Kerry in Massachusetts) and two House candidates (Melissa Hart in western PA and Toni Gilhooley in central PA).

Katie and others, as you know I have to "pick my spots" somewhat carefully. I will be sending out a mass mailing (and telling people to please alert their friends, family, and acquaintances to support certain candidates who are running against people who shafted Hillary Clinton). I need to keep the candidate numbers low enough not to turn people off with sheer volume. The candidates I'm zeroing in on are Steve Sauerberg (Illinois Senate), Jeff Beatty (Senate Mass.), Melissa Hart (Congress 4th District, my district, western PA), and Toni Gilhooley (PA 17th district, Harrisburg and surrounding area). I will ask people to highlight these candidates on their blogs and to send money ("at least a modest contribution"), and urge everyone to support them in any ways possible. The "Hillary-crats" I'm dealing with are mainly "Reagan Democrats.

Sauerberg and Beatty you know about. Details about Hart and Gilhooley are on their sites. These people are friends and very dear to me. Alicia Collins is Melissa's campaign manager. Jake Burns is Toni's campaign manager. Melissa's opponent, Jason Altmire, is anti-military and one of Pelosi's political "boy toys." Toni's opponent (Tim Holden) is a poor excuse for a human being who says he supports "moot" at the Democratic Convention. Is that Mr. Moot or Mrs. Moot?

Are there other terrific candidates for Congress in PA? In fact, there are many, and I'll be citing them this weekend. As far as their efforts to win, I'm going to do what I can -- when I can.

I firmly believe that for any of these candidates to win they MUST go after the Hillary Supporters. They can't win with Republicans alone. In most cases, their opponents have helped them by stabbing Sen. Clinton in the back.

My goal is to make 15,000 to 25,000 people nationally aware of the four candidates. They need financial supporters, and they need individuals across the country to advocate their candidacies.

Democrats "Party Loyalty" Sinking Fast

Lifelong Democrats increasingly are deserting the sinking ship that is their Party . . . That has huge implications for Republican candidates . . .

This has been one busy week, and it's only Wednesday. I've been posting mainly e-mails from Democrats who are no longer comfortable being Democrats. Many of them are now disgusted Democrats, or Independent, or -- in some cases -- (shudder) Republicans. If you scroll down, you'll see some examples. I'll have up more tomorrow.

Consider the following comments by Latonia, a Democrat totally dismayed by her Party:

"I don't understand why Republicans aren't trying to figure out how to come together and beat nobama. It seems that both parties have serious flaws. As soon as this election is over - I am going Independent - no party loyalties for me."

Republican candidates should go after those disgusted Democrats. In many case, there own represenatives are major factors in their disgust. Democrats like Jason Altmire and Patrick Murphy accepted campaign "contributions" from Obama. Then, they (coincidentally) backed Obama during and after the Pennsylvania Primary. Altmire will claim that's not true -- that he was "undecided." In fact, he fawned all over Sen. Obama during the primary season. It's a good idea to never believe anything Jason Altmire says. As for Murphy, a veteran, he jointed the anti-military wing of the Democratic Party as soon as Nancy Pelosi winked at him.

If these are the kind of congressman Pennsylvania wants, then God help us!

By the way, Altmire's opponent is Melisss Hart. Murphy's is Tom Manion. They need your support to defeat their morally corrupt opponents.

The following shows the usual pro-Obama media bias, but if you read between the lines, it says a lot about Clinton backers going to McCain. Barack Obama expressed his general contempt for the people of Pennsylvania (supposedly "clinging" to our guns and our God), and no one has forgotten the remarks.
Ex-Clinton supporters show at McCain gathering

Published: Wednesday, August 20, 2008 4:28 AM EDT

A brother of New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and local Democrats who backed her unsuccessful presidential campaign socialized privately Monday with a top surrogate of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain.

The private gathering featured Carly Fiorina, McCain’s top economic adviser, and took place at the Dunmore home of political consultant Jamie Brazil, a longtime friend of Clinton’s family who has signed on as paid national director of McCain’s Citizens for McCain Coalition.

The attendees included Tony Rodham, Clinton’s youngest sibling, his wife, Megan, and their two children; attorney Kathleen Granahan Kane, who coordinated Clinton’s presidential campaign in northeast Pennsylvania during the Pennsylvania primary election; and Virginia McGregor, the sister of Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty.

With the Democratic National Convention less than a week away, the gathering raises questions about the support Illinois Sen. Barack Obama can expect from former local supporters of Clinton, who dominated voting in the northeast in the April primary election. Clinton won 74 percent of Lackawanna County Democrats, to Obama’s 26 percent.

Fiorina’s day-long local visit, part of a two-day bus tour of the state, was aimed at talking disenchanted former supporters of Clinton into supporting McCain. The private gathering was not a fundraiser.

“I think there’s going to be a groundswell of support for McCain,” said Lackawanna County District Attorney Andy Jarbola, a Republican and one of the people who attended. “I think a lot of Hillary supporters are going to be for McCain.”

Efforts to reach Brazil, Rodham and a spokesman for Clinton were unsuccessful.

Ellen Mellody, the northeast spokeswoman for Obama’s campaign, declined to comment on Rodham’s presence at the meeting, but said Obama’s backing by Clinton and Gov. Ed Rendell is supplemented by growing local support.

“We’re seeing huge support and momentum throughout the region,” Mellody said. “Currently, we have over 1,000 volunteers, many of which are independent Republicans and former Clinton supporters and volunteers. We expect to sign up hundreds more in the coming weeks. We have three offices open in the region and we are opening two more shortly.”

Kane said her presence at the gathering should not be read as a sign of support for McCain.
“I don’t know. I’m not sure. I’m trying to get as much information as I can on both of them,” she said when asked if she’s backing McCain. “I would have loved to see her as president. We still have a week to go. You never know what’s going to happen at the convention. I think she would be a fantastic choice (for vice president).”

Kane said she didn’t read Rodham’s presence as a sign he’s supporting McCain.

“No, it definitely does not. The reason he was there was because he and Jamie are very good friends,” Kane said. “I think that was just a social call.”

McGregor declined to say if she’s supporting Obama, but said she attended because Brazil is a friend.

“I was always a fan of Carly,” she said.

McGregor’s appearance also is no indicator of the position of her brother, Doherty, she said.
“It didn’t mean anything,” said McGregor, who ran Doherty’s successful 2005 re-election campaign. “I’m just a housewife. I’m a nobody.”

Doherty has publicly endorsed Obama.

Fiorina spoke briefly about McCain’s economic policies, but mostly mingled with her audience, Jarbola said. About 20 people attended.

After dropping by Brazil’s home, Fiorina addressed a public event at the Ramada Inn in South Abington Township. About a third of the audience was Democrats, based on a show of hands Fiorina requested.

Fiorina peppered her Ramada remarks with references to Clinton . . .

Brazil is a longtime close friend of the Rodham family and a friend of Rendell, who also supported Clinton.

Rendell is endorsing Obama, although he has said he will vote for Clinton when her name is placed in nomination at the convention next week.

Lackawanna County Recorder of Deeds Evie Rafalko McNulty, a Clinton convention delegate who plans to support Obama after the convention, lamented Rodham’s appearance at Brazil’s home for the private get-together with Fiorina.

“Poor Hillary,” she said. “You can pick you friends, but you can’t pick your family.”

Shell-Shocked Democrats Cry "Enough!"

As you've noticed, I'm printing one letter after another from people (mostly women, but some men) who have left the Democratic Party. I just received the following from (former) Democrat "Mary": "It is Hillary or McCain for me, and I will switch to Independent when this is all over." Mary

People like Mary are doing what they're doing because they're disgusted by the fraud and deceit in the primaries, particularly in the caucus states, where Obama used "Chicago Politics" to seize victories. They're also leaving because they're finally getting an understanding that the Party of FDR and JFK is as dead as a skunk run over by an 18-wheeler. Some of them people are becoming Indepedents, Republicans, or even Libertarians. Others are so by their Party's lack of patriotism, concern for America's future, or even regard for human life that they're shell-shocked. Previously, I've posted pieces by Lyn from Texas and Pam from New Jersey, and I urge you to read them. The following is from a brilliant young woman named Michelle, who posts on a Yahoo Group called "Eighteen Million Hillary Supporters." Now, she's committed to the one man of courage and integrity left in the race: John McCain. If you're a candidate yourself, these are voters you want. They see that the Democrat Party has no real connection with American values.

On the Yahoo Group, I told Michelle to stop responding to one dim-witted Democrat who responded to her thoughtful posts with soporific replies. She said:

"I'm beginning to see that. I have a feeling my post [one on stem-cell research] will be ignored, but that's typical. He is what people are seeing when they think "Democrat." I think a lot of the average folks are more FDR-type Democrats, but the extremists are really taking over and the lack of honesty and intellegence is truly frustrating. They are certainly louder, but that's a shame because most of what they screech is just plain stupid. It's like they have cue cards and just hit repeat ad nauseum."

The following is what Michelle wrote when she found out Obama favors something called "live-birth abortion." This happens in botched abortions when the child is born alive. Obama's position is that the infant should be allowed to die without receiving medical care. Michelle said:

"This is the most horrific thing I have ever heard. It's one thing for abortion to be legal, but this is pure and simple birthing- to-murder. This is something I would expect out of Germany circa 1940. And I HATE that all encompassing 'Hitler' comparison, so I am not comparing Barack to Hitler. I am comparing this act of Infanticide to Nazi Germany."

Note, the following link is to the piece Michelle read:

As Michelle suggests, this is today's Democrat Party, one dominated by ignorance and a disregard for human life. It's not a Party Pennsylvanians can identity with; it's not a Party Americans will vote into the White House.

The following is from Rebekah, who's also waved bye-bye to today's fanaticized Democratic Party:

"I will be water boarded before I vote for Obama. After what the DNC disenfranchised their own party members. I will be an independent after the convention. I will no longer be a Democrat. I am tired of the McGovern, Dukakis, Mondale and Kerry selections. Also, that human piece of garbage Jimmy Carter, who did a lousy job. We are not a Parliamentary system. Has anyone thought of why Obama wrote an autobiography at 29 years old. I thought only people who were terminally ill wrote an autobiography before 30. Barry is going down this November."

Democrats Say: "The Party's Over"

I urge everyone to read the previous day's piece by disaffected Democrats Pam from New Jersey and Lyn from Texas. Both of them are working hard to defeat Barack Obama, as well as other Democrats. Neither Pam nor Lyn regards herself anymore as a Democrat, a Party that has been their political "home" for their entire adult lives. Below are two other pieces I received today from Pam, a woman of courage, integrity, and vision. How many Pams are out there? I'd estimate in the hundreds of thousands. In fact, the number could be in the millions. Quality congressional candidates need to reach out to the Pams of this world, who may be the keys to victory.

I couldn't have said the following better than my friend Pam in NJ, who was a Hillary Supporter and a lifelong Democrat. Pam says:

"Sure you may repeat anything you need. After the convention, people have to make a decision about their lives, which may be the biggest they have made in a long, long time. People have to cut their ties with the Democratic party, forget all the bad stuff they have known or felt [over the primaries], and get on with their lives. The torment has been atrocious over the last eight months.

"Democrats have been stripped clean of their identity in politics and now they have to put on a new suit and get their integrity back. The Democratic party has been scraping away at the fabric of their so-called politics, and now we have to shed the Party [Democratic] altogether.

This will be my job to help them understand that if the Party can change so fast, why can't the Republican party not change [for the better] also?

"People are going to have to shift parties after going through this AWFUL stuff of Obama. Our old party is dead and long live the survivors and the Republican party."

People like Pam regard Obama as inexperienced, unqualified, untrustworthy, and -- most of all -- dangerous. They believe that a party which can nominate such an individual no longer deserves their support. My friends, reach out to the "Pams" who have separated themselves from the Democrats.

Patriotic, Disgusted Dems Leave Party

This first e-mail below is from Pam, who lives in New Jersey. What she says holds for many "Democrats," who increasingly will become "former Democrats." Another of my correspondents has that as a screen name: "fomerdemocrat." It's more of an intellectual and spiritual transformation than a case of marching to the courthouse to change registration. Thanks, Pam (The second e-mail is from Lyn, another disgusted Democrat.)

Note: I also urge people to click on the Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio widget on the sidebar to your right. You'll hear from two courageous women, Bev Perlson and Debra Bartoshevich, who urge "Americans," men and women, not to vote for the pompous windbag Obama. They both illustrate the transformation going on in Pennsylvania and nationally.

Pam Says: You have done your job well. I don't know what to think of some of these people. Things change and I think the Democratic party has changed and is GONE. Get on with life and see where the Republican party will take you. I need structure, I need someone who knows what he is doing and not fidgeting in the dark. You are right.

his election is going to separate the boys from the men the girls from the women. What do you really want for you and your families' lives? I want what our forefathers wrote down in the constitution and BO has done everything but re-write the constitution and that is NOT GOING TO BE DONE ON MY WATCH.

I do understand your fatigue and you have been a good warrior. I will go into the hospital Tuesday for knee replacement and then be home until labor day. I will be going back to work then.

Things have to change on these boards after the convention. People have to get up and do and stay behind to suffer what BO can do.

I think of your often and praise all you have done in the name of your country. Stay calm, cool and collected. You have done a lot for McCain and he rewarded you well last night. He made a wonderful showing. I think the Republican party will be changing also for the good of the people with McCain...You have done a proud job for the party and your country. My hat is off to you sir. You take care and stay well. -- Pam

The following letter is from disgusted former Democrat Lyn in Texas:

I actually agree with everything you have said [about the Democratic Party becoming a menance to decent Americans]. I think my signature at the bottom of the email says all when it comes to the party. There is not one and sadyly I am realizing there are many views of the Democrats that I do not agree with anymore.

Many of us, including myself, are signed up as volunteers for Senator McCain off his official website. It was done befor all the side sites started up for Clintons for McCain. Once the [Denver] convention is over, I will have more time to focus on those sites. Senator McCain is someone I can respect and I will never have that for Obama, regardless of the other issues.

And, I am working night and day on all. I still believe that Hillary should be on the ballot, and yes she will probably lose, but it is her right and we will fight for that, and there are many that will hope for the win. I, too, do not see it happening but I will go down fighting for her to have her name recorded in nomination, instead of a present vote, which is what it would be if the nomination process is not carried through.

I personally think there was a fix after Obama's [2004] convention speech that made him known to the world. The next day there was an article written by Donna Brazille talking about the Obama factor in the next race. Hillary sure was not mentioned and others as well were ignored.

I am working with someone on something that I cannot go into details about. We hope to start it up in a couple of weeks and it will be focused on getting Democrats in battleground states to vote McCain. I really wish McCain would open a Ft. Worth office so I could go to work there; otherwise, my time is going to be limited as I have to get back to work when school starts and get some cash flow going. I have been off work all year so I have been able to do this but cash hurting.

Also working against John Kerry. So I would love to see your friend's Kerry info. If you are for him, I am sorry but the one hearing I have of him showed me he is not in touch with the people any more. I actually am trying to find someone to do a Youtube of a presentation i have put together but everyone is busy. [Note from Steve: I support Jeff Beaty, the Republican, against John Kerry.]

We also do have a list of traitors. I had already compiled a list of the states she won and the ones that endorsed Obama from those states. They will not be forgotten.

But you are right, people deserve what they get. Too many are falling in line because it is their party. I think that we can get some of them over to McCain. Not that it matters, but I already planned to write Barr when it gets closer and we know more what he is of those for the good of the country, endorse McCain.

Do not let Obama win. I mean really these guys know they don't have a chance but I know Barr is going to take away from John.

There are a 1000 emails going out tonight to editors all over the country re: nomination process and that if Obama does win it, then people need to be voting for the McCain. Otherwise, Obama is going to ruin the country. Actually trying to put some letters together now.

Guess I better get back to work. I cannot remember the last time I have gotten to sleep before 6 am but I need to try tonight. -- Lyn

Steve adds: Thanks Pam and Lyn. You are two of many fine Americans who are "just saying no" to a Democratic Party that is a caricature of its past. Pam, who has a physical ailment and Lyn are working their hearts out -- Lyn staying up till 6 a.m. -- to ensure the defeat of Barack H. Obama. I salute them both.

McCain Draws Even in Gallup Poll!

McCain's continued strong performance in the national polls (see below) has positive implications for GOP candidates around the country. Obama has a big lead in three large states -- Illinois, New York, and California, as well as a huge lead in the District of Columbia -- and that suggests McCain is doing well in most of the other 47 states. McCain has a decent chance to win PA, OH, VA, FL, MI, MN, and CO -- all battleground states. PA's GOP candidates must emphasize that they are strongly "NoBama."

(McCain, light green, Obama, dark green

The Aug. 12-14 polling shows a slight dip in Obama's support, which had ranged between 46% and 48% (averaging 47%) in August. McCain has averaged 43% support among registered voters so far in August. Thus, the closer margin seen in today's results is due more to movement away from Obama than toward McCain. Twelve percent of registered voters now say they are undecided or supporting another candidate, which is on the high end of what Gallup has measured this year.

Voter preferences have been closely divided between Obama and McCain in each of the last three individual nights of polling, underscoring the notion that the race has tightened for the moment. This could to some degree reflect Obama's absence from the campaign trail while he vacations in Hawaii. He will return to the spotlight over the next few weeks upon naming his vice presidential running mate and accepting his party's nomination for president at the Democratic national convention, and both events have typically been associated with a bounce in support for a presidential candidate.

On Thursday, the Obama and Hillary Clinton campaigns announced an agreement to put her name into nomination for president at the convention. Given that the race has been tight for the past few days, it is unlikely this announcement is related to any change in Obama's support.
Since early June when Obama clinched the nomination, he has averaged a three percentage point advantage over McCain in Gallup Poll Daily tracking. (To view the complete trend since March 7, 2008, click here.) -- Jeff Jones

GOP Candidates: Ferocity, Not Fecklessness

Republicans: get much tougher -- or stop kidding yourself about winning . . .

I'll be putting up a new column this weekend. I've been spending a great deal of time on matters pertaining to Barack H. Obama -- specifically, doing what I can to ensure his defeat. One point I've been emphasizing is the need -- nationally and in congressional races -- for Republican candidates to confront Democrats. I'm talking not only about butting heads HARD with their opponents, but also asking registered Democrats if they really want a Congress that's bent on doing great damage to the country. The failure of Congress over a period of many decades to permit exploring for and producing oil has led to a national crisis. If we re-elect incompetent Democrats, the crisis will get much worse.

It's long past the time when we needed dignified debates about the "issues." When your Democratic opponent is corrupt and irresponsible, it serves no good cause to treat him as if he were FDR or JFK. Also, when people like Jason Altmire, Tim Holden, Patrick Murphy, Allyson Schwartz, Joe Sestak, and Paul Kanjorski are taking positions on the War that endanger the lives of American soldiers, it's time to take off the gloves.

Running a "traditional Republican" campaign -- one with a great deal of timidity disgusied as "dignity" -- is a sure recipe for defeat. Frankly, with four more years -- or eight more years -- of Democratic rule in Washington, the U.S. will be lucky if it's still a country.

Republicans need to campaign not with fecklessness, but with ferocity. If you want the office, then do what it takes to get it! Voters -- even Democrats -- are not entirely robotic. Hit them in the mouth with the truth, and they will wake up and respond effectively.

Don't kid yourselves that your opponents are "good, but misguided individuals>' Misguided they are, but good they're not. They're on a path to wreck the economy and undermine the nation's ability to protect itself.

People who care deeply about this country should visit the following sites and offer your support. If they don't get your support, then get used to a government controlled by Nancy Pelosi and her minions.

Note: I wrote the following on the "Black Conservatives Group" in response to Howard Deans' comment that the GOP was too white:

I live in Pennsylvania near the Ohio border. In the 2006 election, the Republican candidate for Governor in PA was Lynn Swann who, the last time I looked, was Black. He got 40% of the vote -- and 90$ of those votes (36% of the total) came from white people.

Something very similar happened in Ohio, where African-American Ken Blackwell ran against a white guy (Strickland), who picked up more than four-of-five Black votes. Michael Steele, also a Black man, ran against a white guy for Senate in Maryland. Steele was far the superior candidate and he got a majority of the white votes, but he was buried under votes from the Black community that went to the white guy.

I supported Swann, Blackwell, and Steele because they were better candidates -- and much better men.

In PA, Ed Rendell funneled three-quarters of a million in street money, mainly into Black wards in Philly, Pittsburgh, and Harrisburg -- basically a "dollars-for-votes" scheme. Rendell did very, very well in those communities.

As long as voters -- Black and white -- reject good candidates for bad ones, our politics will remain in a shambles. It's tragic, because it means that in many African-American areas things will NEVER get better -- until and unless people smarten up.

Defeating Democrats Example: Allyson Schwartz

Note: On my Hillary Supporters site, I just wrote a "memo" to Hillary Democrats (all 18 million) pointing out that the wisest thing they could do is to switch Parties. I hope you'll visit.

Pennsylvania candidates and their supporters: A critical point is that Keystone State Democrats and Independents can't vote in good conscience for congressional representatives who stabbed Hillary Clinton in the back. Such backstabbers essentially include the entire Pennsylvania congressional delegation, especially people like Jason Altmire and Patrick Murphy, who received money from Obama, Joe Sestak, Allyson Schwartz, and Tim Holden, a dithering Democrat who now claims to be supporting someone at the Convention named "moot."

Democratic voters with a conscience must either vote against such people -- the firmest step possible -- or not vote FOR them. Like courageous Wisconsin Democrat Debra Bartoshevich, PA Democrats must put conscience and country ahead of Party. There's no other position compatible with American values.

I wrote the following to supporters of Marina Kats, the Republican candidate for Congress in PA's 13th District (Montgomery County and Northeast Phiadelphia):

The Kats campaign is on the right track. It is essential to BRAND "good old Allyson Schwartz" as a menace to voters in the 13th.

In 1990, Christine Whitman waged a great Senate campaign against Bill Bradley. Basically she was saying (on radio) -- forecefully and often -- that "I'm a good, thoughtful person, and he's not. He is a terrible Senator." Bradley spent $11 million, and Whitman spent less than a million, and he won by only 51-48%.

The point to get across is that "Good ole Allyson and Good ole Nancy [Pelosi]" are wrecking the country. I know many voters in the 13th would like to vote for the "nice" liberal lady, but she and congressional Democrats are leaving an ash pit for the people in the nice communities of Montgomery County.

Who's going to buy those homes? Who can afford to both play golf and commute into Center City? Who's responsible for high gas prices? Allyson Schwartz is, because did nothing to prevent them. Blaming the failings of Congress on George Bush is absurd.

I really believe Marina should go after those Hillary votes. Tell them if you want someone who's not just a Pelosi-clone sneering at America and its values, vote for me. If you want the country to continue in decline, then by all means vote for Allyson.

Attorney Marina Kats needs to "pretend" she's in court and almost literally in a fight for her life. I'll help in any way I can, but my means are modest (to say the least).

The last thing politicians are supposed to do is to tell the truth. In this case, Marina has to do so. Schwartz and friends are wrecking the way of life people in Montco and NE Philly have spent all their lives building. Voters know that, but they're still in deial about fully admitting it.

Bartoshevich, Perlson: American Heroines Speak

Note: On my Hillary Supporters site, I just wrote a "memo" to Hillary Democrats (all 18 million) pointing out that the wisest thing they could do is to switch Parties. I hope you'll visit.

Pennsylvania candidates and their supporters: A critical point is that Keystone State Democrats and Independents can't vote in good conscience for Democrats who stabbed Hillary Clinton in the back. Such backstabbers essentially include the entire Pennsylvania congressional delegation, especially people like Jason Altmire and Patrick Murphy, who received money from Obama, Joe Sestak, Allyson Schwartz, and Tim Holden, a dithering Democrat who now claims to be supporting someone at the Convention named "moot." Democratic voters with a conscience must either vote against such people -- the firmest step possible -- or not vote FOR them. [See important press release below] Like Debra Bartoshevich, PA Democrats must put conscience and country ahead of Party. There's no other position compatible with American values. \

Bulletin: I just wrote the following to a Democratic friend in the NoBama Movement: The bullying tactics of the Party bigwigs against Debra Bartoshevich and others are critical points to stress. Obama is the tip of the iceberg. Bev Perlson and other national groups just get ignored by Pelosi and her main allies, including Jack Murtha, who ran Nancy's campaign for Speaker. Murtha lost badly in his race for Dem Majority Leader because Steny Hoyer and others portrayed him as a crook, which according to CREW (Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington), he is.

We have congressional candidates in PA, including my rep Jason Altmire, who are backing Obama even though Hillary carried their districts by two-to-one. They believe they are immune from political consequences".


United States of America (Press Release), August 13, 2008

Beverly Perlson and Debra Bartoshevich will join us on Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio at 5 p.m., ET, Saturday, August 16, 2008 to discuss basic American freedoms and responsibilities.

Perlson, from the Chicago, Illinois area, founded The Band of Mothers (, an organization of soldiers’ moms committed “to Step Up, Stand Up and Stick Up For Our Soldiers.” As a member of the 82d Airborne Division, Perlson’s Bronze-Star-winning son, Sergeant John White, served four tours of combat duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bartoshevich, from the Racine, Wisconsin area, was elected a Hillary Clinton delegate to the Democratic National Convention. When she announced she would vote for John McCain in the General Election, the state Party quickly stripped her of her rights to attend the Convention as a Clinton supporter.

Here’s where and when Perlson and Bartoshevich will appear.

Blog Talk Radio, Clintons 4 McCain August 2, 2008: 5 PM EST Call-in Number: (347) 633-9273
Perlson and her allied groups – including Gathering of Eagles, Soldiers Guardian Angeles, Vets for Freedom, and Free Republic – regularly confront anti-war legislators, including Nancy Pelosi and John Murtha.

Perlson has clashed memorably with the militant anti-war group CODEPINK. That group has conducted anti-military demonstrations before Congress and at a Berkeley, California Marine recruiting center.

Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK co-founder, has called Perlson and her soldier son “terrorists.” In response, Perlson said, “I have a message for you, Medea. Get out of our country.”

CODEPINK, along with of “General Betray-us” infamy, has been provided major financial backing for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Jodie Evans, a CODEPINK co-founder, has served as “bundler” of Obama’s campaign donations.

Debra Bartoshevich, an emergency room nurse, received national attention for her pro-Clinton, pro-democracy, anti-Obama stance.

After the Democratic Party stripped her of her Convention credentials, she and her 16-year-old daughter met with Sen. John McCain.

He described Bartoshevich as “a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat.” He praised her courage in putting conscience and country ahead of Party.

On the radio program, Bartoshevich will discuss intimidation and strong-arm tactics being used by Democratic Party officials against Hillary Supporters.

Perlson will talk about how the political gamesmanship played by far-left members of Congress endangers the lives of soldiers like her son.

Both women will highlight why they’ve become strong members of the NoBama coalition.

Co-hosts on the program will be “NoBama” political activists Steve Maloney, from Pennsylvania, and Anne M. Franklin of Texas.

Obama's Effect on GOP Candidates

The following paragraphs discuss races involving John McCain, Melissa Hart, Tom Manion, Toni Gilhooley . . . and Marina Kats.

I'll have a new column up on Tuesday evening (and it will function as the Wed. a.m. column). In the meantime, I have two column on other blogs that may be of interest). The first one is at: It deals with "Seven Reasons Obama Will Lose "(nationally). Of course, it's critical for Pennsylvania congressional candidates that John McCain win this state -- and hopefully, win it big. To a large extent, "as McCain goes, so go the congressional challengers."

Another column discusses my political relationships -- over the past three months -- with Hillary Clinton Supporters who will -- or, in some cases -- may support John McCain. In several congressional races -- including Hart-Altmire, Manion-Murphy, and Gilhooley-Holden -- the Democrat basically stabbed Mrs. Clinton in the back. The Republican candidates need to exploit that face -- and even make it part of their advertising campaign. No Democrat in Pennsylvania or elsewhere can support Barack H. Obama without carrying some of the baggage he brings.

Also, I hope Marina Kats keeping asking her opponent, Schwartz, if she supports Obama, including his contempt for Pennsylvanians outside urban areas.

Pro-McCain Bloggers: Critical Information

Exercises in Democrat Cynicism, Chapter 93

Politico: "California Democrat Nancy Pelosi may be trying to save the planet - but the rank and file in her party increasingly are just trying to save their political hides when it comes to gas prices as Republicans apply more and more rhetorical muscle. But what looks like intraparty tension on the surface is part of an intentional strategy in which Pelosi takes the heat on energy policy, while behind the scenes she's encouraging vulnerable Democrats to express their independence if it helps them politically, according to Democratic aides on and off Capitol Hill... Asked if Congress will produce a comprehensive energy bill in September before Congress adjourns again for elections, [Rep. Nick] Rahall [D-WV] replied, 'This year?

If you want to be a blogger for John McCain (and, hopefully, for other outstanding GOP candidates, please contact me at: If you've never blogged before, ask me how to do it, and I'll give you a simple explanation.

Along with others, I'll be sending out massive mailings asking people to support McCain and others. One thing you can do right now is to write a letter-to-the-editor of your local newspaper. Keep the letter factual, hard-hitting, and short (200 words or less). Be sure to provide your full name, address, and e-mail address. Generally, you can send a letter via e-mail. Clicking on the following link(s) will show you where to send your e-mail. To the greatest degree possible, compose it in your own words. To check that it sounds okay, please read it aloud before you send it. Remember, weekly papers and small dailies (e.g., The Beaver County Times) tend to get read more fully than the bigger dailies.

AUTHOR ANDY MARTIN EXPRESSES CONCERN THAT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WAS USED TO "LAUNDER" THE OBAMA/DAVIS CONNECTION( Note: Andy Martin's recent appearance on Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio is available by going to the BTR site.)

(August 8, 2008)

Legendary Chicago corruption fighter, columnist, media critic and Obama adversary Andy Martin will hold a 2:00 P.M. Washington, DC news conference Friday, August 8th to demand that Senator Barack Obama make a full disclosure of his relationship with leftist and putative Communist Frank Marshall Davis. Martin is concerned that Obama has used the Associated Press to "launder" the Davis/Obama relationship. Martin is the author of the controversial bestseller Obama: The Man Behind The Mask."Frank Marshall Davis was acknowledged by Obama as perhaps the most significant mentor in Obama's adolescent years," Martin says. "The Obama/Davis connection is a ticking time bomb for the Democratic Party. The matter has not received the attention it deserves. A recent story by the Associated Press seems to be an effort by the Obama campaign to launder Davis' alleged Communist Party connections. Once again, Senator Obama appears to be trying to deflect attention from the peculiar influences which shaped his childhood."My column, which will be released at the news conference, calls on Senator Obama to make a full disclosure of his relationship with Davis," Martin states.FULL DISCLOSURE FROM ANDY MARTIN: I am opposing Senator Obama's election and have become Executive Director of The Stop Obama Coalition, By default, I have become the national leader of the independent anti-Obama movement. I am not acting as either a Democrat or Republican. I have had no contact whatsoever with the McCain Campaign. I am acting as an independent American citizen who sincerely believes Obama is not the man we need in the Oval Office. We are going to run a very dynamic and aggressive campaign against Obama. I will continue to write my columns for orders: Immediate shipment from the publisher now available.WEBSITE:
