Ohio is playing one of the most important swing states in the 2012 Presidential election. All we’ve heard from the mainstream media is that Ohio will go Obama as it did in 2008. However, things are changing, and changing very rapidly and causing the Obama campaigns to scramble to save Ohio or , as in the Romney campaign – pushing forward on surging popularity. Read more…
The group Voters First Ohio, is coming under fire from Tea Party representatives. Voters First Ohio is 130,000 signatures short of the 385,253 valid signatures that they need to get the Redistricting Amendment to the Ohio Constitution on the ballot in November. However, they have until July 28th to “cure” their deficit.
Many of the petitions they have turned in show that they are getting a significant number of Republican and independents signing the petition, mostly by mis-representing what the Amendment is to those they are soliciting for signatures. In what appears to be typical Sal Alinsky tactics, they are actually telling people that this petition is endorsed by the TEA Party and the NRA and other conservative groups. David Langdon of Protect Your Vote is trying to get the word out to everyone in the Tea Party movement to tell them NOT to sign this petition. Continue reading Ohio Redistricting Amendment Coverup
In the pitched battle over whether government should take over our health care system, a group of pro-life Democrat congressmen held the line to oppose the legislation because they knew the bill authorized funding for abortion. Under intense pressure from the president and their pro-choice comrades in the Congress, the group, led by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) flip-flopped when they received a letter from the president ensuring that government would not spend money for abortion. They were had.
It has been 932 days since the Democrats have passed a budget. With the formation of the Super Committee, the Tea Party saw an opportunity for Americans to tell Congress what they would be willing to cut, and offer suggestions to make the budgeting process easier for them. CSPAN was even to cover the event.
The Senate Rules Committee, headed up by Chuck Schumer, told the Tea Party gathering they were uncomfortable with the word “hearing”, and locked the doors and took away the microphones minutes before the event was scheduled to start.
Here’s a rest of the story…
The event quickly found a new location at Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center, where the hearing took place not too far behind schedule.
National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act: Congressional support is growing for a bill (H.R.822) that would require all states to honor concealed carry firearm permits issued in any state. Under the legislation, citizens with a permit to carry a concealed weapon in one state could legally carry it into another, in accordance with the restrictions of that state. The House bill would give Americans who hold permits to carry firearms in their home states the right to carry their weapons across state lines.
Balanced Budget Amendment: Republicans in the House have introduced a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. The measure, which would require two-thirds approval of both chambers of Congress and ratification by three-fourths of the states, would require that federal spending in any year not exceed total revenue. It would cap federal spending at 18 percent of gross domestic product and require the president to submit a balanced budget to Congress every year.
Attorney General Tom Horne accused the Obama administration Tuesday of trying to thwart Arizona’s voter-ID laws in a bid to get more illegal immigrants to the polls — presumably to cast ballots for the president and Democrats.
Horne acknowledged that a brief filed by the Department of Justice in a case to be heard next month by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals centers around the agency’s argument that Arizona’s law requiring proof of citizenship to register is pre-empted by federal law. But Horne, a Republican, told Capitol Media Services he sees something more sinister.
“I think the motive is that the more illegals that vote, the better the Obama administration thinks it will do,’’ he said. Read the entire story….
Last night’s CBS News/National Journal debate was mainly focused on foreign policy.
But behind the scenes it was focused on shaping who the mainstream media, and in this case, CBS in particular, wanted you to hear from – or not hear from.
In a leaked memo, it appears that CBS was planning on shutting down Michelle Bachmann from the beginning. Bachman is on the House Intelligence Committee which is charged with the oversight of the United States Intelligence Community. Bachmann touts this position as her key insight into foreign policy.
The Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote on the so-called “Respect for Marriage Act of 2011″ will take place Thursday November 10th.
The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on a crucial bill that would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and undermine marriage in America. Not coincidentally, opponents of natural marriage are doing everything they can to push this vote in their favor. Just days ago, a group of 70 major companies that have been cowed by pro-homosexual activists issued a brief opposing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) law that defends marriage as being between one man and one woman. These companies include: Continue reading Senate Vote on DOMA Set for Thursday
Tuesday the voters of Ohio resoundingly sent a message to Washington: “We don’t want your government healthcare!”
In a almost 66% to 34% vote Ohioans voted to enact the Proposed Constitutional Amendment to preserve the freedom of Ohioans to choose their health care and health care coverage, otherwise known nationally as Issue 3.
The passage of Issue 3 protects Ohioans from the federal government to force them to purchase any type or product or service, specifically aimed at Obama’s centerpiece legislation of national health care, otherwise known as Obamacare.
Issue 3 read:
The proposed amendment would provide that:
In Ohio, no law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in a health care system.
In Ohio, no law or rule shall prohibit the purchase or sale of health care or health insurance.
I have heard over the past several weeks many things against Issue 3, Ohio’s Health Care Amendment. They say that it will “have dramatic consequences” for child support enforcement, our ability to license doctors and nurses, for school immunization programs, and workers compensation. All of these are lies. Below is the actual wording for the Issue 3 that will appear on your ballots. Continue reading Ohio’s Issue 3 Health Care Amendment and what is really in it?
