Governor Jim Gibbons (R-NV) has reached deep into his inner self being to find his Sarah Palin persona
in a recent fundraising letter to supporters. He’s got her “hopey…changey” thing almost perfect, including
some misspelled words of his own.
Governor Gibbons has never been known as a wordsmith, and the same is true of Sarah Palin, but at least
she looks cute when she winks at you as she says, “hopey…changey“. The next time Gibbons is on TV see if
he winks at the camera, and you might as well as check for crib notes written on his hand since he has choose Palin to mimic.
fund raising letter posted on the Las Vegas Sun website is funny, full of right wing talking
points along with half-truths and lies, and Governor Gibbon’s reproduction of Sarah Palin is pretty close.
Dear Fellow Nevadans and 1864 Club Members,
Rasmussen Polls Show We Have Pushed Ahead of Rory Reid
as Nevada Voters Realize...We Were Right!
We've all seen where this "hopey...changey...feely...and now "believey" kind of stuff" has gotten our
great Country...to the Socialist World of Big Government and of Higher Taxes...and to a Government Takeover of the Banks...of
the Insurance Industry...of the Car Companies...and now...of the Peoples' Health Care and their Right to make Personal Decisions
with their doctors.
These "hopey...changey...feely...and now "believey" kinda of things will bring our entire country that
much closer to a "European Socialist State"...nothing that our Forefathers have Envisioned and nothing close to my Vision
for A Nevada Government which is...For the People and By the People."
The hopey changey stuff I've heard before of critisism by Palin of Obama et al...the believey stuff
focuses on bs [Brian Sandoval]'s current theme...the feely accentuates this ploy bs is using, like a song which was cool,
but over time gets old/boring/drops off the charts, and it loses its credibility which I believe is dangerous for bs as it
puts bs too close to areas of our President's administration. That polls suggest people have had enough. As the polls are
showing, Nevadan Voters Say No to Large Government and are Saying Yes to Lower Taxes...Yes to Smaller Government...Yes to
Real Jobs...and Yes to the Vision that The Gibbons Administration has been pursuing!
We've Stayed on Track...and remain Locked on Target...and many Nevada Voters are now saying...Yes,
Governor Gibbons, You Were Right!
And I say...As Your Governor of Nevada, Battle Born and There for You...We Were Right!
I urge you and your friends to join our growing 1864 Club of Real Nevadans for a Strong and Real Government,
By the People and For the People.
(CNN) – Virginia's proclamation of Confederate History Month without any reference to slavery was unacceptable, President
Obama said in an interview broadcast Friday.
"Well, you know, I'm a big history buff. And I think that understanding the history of the Confederacy and understanding
the history of the Civil War is something that every American and every young American should, should be a part of," he told
ABC in an interview taped Thursday. "Now, I don't think you can understand the Confederacy and the Civil War unless you understand
slavery. And so, I think that was a - an unacceptable omission. I think the governor's now acknowledged that."
Obama was referring to Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, who apologized Wednesday for leaving out any reference to slavery in
his recent proclamation designating April as Confederate History Month, calling it a "major omission." McDonnell also said
he would amend the proclamation.
Asked by ABC to weigh in on the dispute, the nation's first African-American president said, "I think it's just a reminder
that when we talk about issues like slavery that are so fraught with pain and emotion, that, you know, we, we'd better do
so thinking through how this is going to affect a lot of people. And their sense of whether they're part of a commonwealth
or part of our broader society."
It’s bad enough to write an anti-Obama column packed with falsehoods about President Obama’s national security
policy. But Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana has managed to go way beyond that. He essentially and casually accuses Obama of
being a traitor:
Simply put, President Obama is disadvantaging the United States one step at a time and undermining this country’s
national defense on purpose.
Rep. Fleming, you’ve earned yourself a limerick:
Inflammatory Fleming By Madeleine Begun Kane
Dear Rep. Fleming, your piece packed with lies About nukes and Obama — unwise! For political reason You
charge him with treason. The traitor is you, I surmise.

Why are so many republicans so quick to kick a man or women whose down on their luck because they lost
their job? Why do so many republicans find it so easy to target this group by continuously voting against Job Bills and unemployment
Maybe its because demographically the unemployed voter block is small. Maybe that’s why Senator
Tom Coburn (R-OK) in an
interview with The Hill yesterday classified the unemployed as being “the
relatively small amount of people who will be affected by this delay”, referring to the current $9 billion unemployment
extension that he has so proudly said he will block along with all future unemployment extensions because he wants it to be
paid for with money from the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP), the $700 Billion that former President Bush used for bailouts
for Wall St.
Senator Coburn said, “The easiest thing in the world is to pass this bill unpaid for, but consider
the millions of Americans whose financial futures would be damaged, versus the relatively small amount of people who will
be affected by this delay," Coburn went on to say, "Now you tell me which vote takes the most courage.”
No Senator, now you tell me which voter needs your help, not your so-called courage. You and your Party
show NO courage when you vote
No on everything, what you do show is your disloyalty to our nation by putting your Party
According to Coburn the “financial futures” of Americans will be in jeopardy if another
$9 billion is spent on an extension, and the money will only affect an insignificant and “relatively small amount of
people” or in GOP political speak, a small block of voters who will most likely not vote.
Senator Tom Coburn’s actions will cause at least 200,000 Americans to have their benefits “interrupted”
this week. Coburn’s fellow republicans have also said they support his action. Surprise, surprise.
Why else would republicans, even those here in Nevada, such as Senator John “ man have I got
ethics problems” Ensign (R-NV) and Rep. Dean Heller (R-NV) vote “No” on every Bill that helps to create
jobs both for Nevada and our nation along with Bills to help the Unemployed and help with COBRA subsidies.
Even the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, aka the Obama Stimulus Bill, which helped save our
country from financial ruin and prevented another Great Depression, each and every republican voted NO. Then back in their
home States at least 114 Republicans praised the Obama Stimulus Bill for creating jobs and paying for worthy projects in their
districts. But the republican leadership claims that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act did not create any jobs,
The republicans have said they want to see President Obama Fail, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) said that
the Health Care Reform Bill was suppose to be President Obama‘s “Waterloo“. What they don’t say is
that they want to see President Obama Fail, even if that means we have to watch America Fail. And they are doing just that,
watching. Their actions and their words clearly show that they put their Party above you, your family and our country.
Republicans find the unemployed insignificant and merely a “relatively small amount of people’
because they think that that voting block is merely a “relatively small amount of people” so why bother trying
to help them
Last week it was reported that an arrest warrant was issued for Scott Ashjian the Tea Party of Nevada
candidate for U.S. Senate, the fact is there was no warrant issued because Ashjian simply paid restitution for the check which
ended the matter right there.
Scott Ashjian said in a press release this past Friday that he put a stop payment on a check to a contractor
he had discovered was not legal to do business in the state. Ashjian said that there was no “bounced check” as
reported by the media, and that the media reports are “inaccurate” and “defamatory.”
Elizabeth Crum of the Nevada News Bureau is
reporting that while Ashjian’s claim that no arrest warrant was ever issued
is in fact true, one was requested then recalled after Ashjian covered the check and court fee’s.
Elizabeth Crum posted an update from Deputy DA Bernie Zadrowski:
“A warrant for Ashjian was requested by our office. We requested a warrant for his arrest on
1 count of D&P Checks and 1 count of Theft. The judge was scheduled to sign the arrest warrant on or about Wednesday the
31st or Thursday April 1st.”
“However, Ashjian’s lawyer contacted me on Wednesday and said Ashjian wished simply to
pay the full amount of restitution. I agreed to accept it. With bad checks, it is the common practice of the Bad Check Unit
to agree to dismiss criminal charges if the defendant is willing to pay all of the fees, costs, and restitution.”
“We did not treat Ashjian any differently than we treat any other bad check case.”
“There was no special treatment and no extra attention given to this matter because Ashjian was
“When the cashier’s check for restitution was sent to our office on Wednesday or Thursday
(I don’t remember exactly) I subsequently wrote a motion to recall the arrest warrant and dismiss the case, and then
filed the motion. The judge agreed to forego signing the arrest warrant and granted the State’s motion to dismiss the
“While it was technically inaccurate to say that an arrest warrant was issued for Ashjian, it
is accurate to say the affidavit in support of the warrant and warrant request was sent to the court. This occurred once the
State had filed the criminal complaint in justice court. But for the State agreeing to put the case on calendar to recall
and dismiss, the signing and issuing of the warrant would have happened on Thursday April 1st.”
It does appear that the media was wrong saying that an arrest warrant was issued, but one was requested.
reported yesterday, Scott Ashjian is still in the running for the U.S. Senate seat currently
held by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid along with 21 others.
Two weeks ago conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel
alleged that Sean Hannity’s Freedom Concerts were “a huge scam,”
then Sean Hannity and the Freedom Alliance quickly and quietly dismissed her as a kook who was trying to make a name
for herself, and the Main Stream Media never picked it up.
But they will now.
It appears that there is merit to her accusations and Debbie Schlussel may get the last word.
CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) filed complaints
with both the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) against Sean Hannity, his Freedom Concerts,
the Freedom Alliance and Lt. Col. Oliver North.
The Freedom Alliance was founded by Col. Oliver North Ret. (Fox News Host) to raise money to support
the troops and their children through Freedom Concerts along with private donations, have raised millions over the last several
“FTC complaint alleges Hannity and Freedom Concerts have engaged in illegal and deceptive marketing
practices by suggesting that all money generated by ticket sales for the Freedom Concerts he sponsors each summer goes to
scholarships for children of killed and wounded service members. In fact, the concerts are staged by Premiere Marketing, which
is headed by Duane Ward – also the head of Premiere Speakers Bureau, which exclusively represents Mr. Hannity and Lt.
Col. North. After staging the concerts, Premiere donates an unknown portion of the concert proceeds to the Freedom Alliance.”
“IRS complaint against Freedom Alliance asks the IRS to consider revoking its charitable tax
status because the organization has engaged in prohibited political activities. When Freedom Alliance first formed in 1999,
the IRS conditioned its charitable tax status on the organization removing politically partisan materials from its website
and warned it not to intervene in political campaigns. Despite those warnings, Freedom Alliance’s website includes links
to Lt. Col. North’s columns, which are largely political, rents its mailing list to a communications firm that works
for organizations that “seek to reach Republicans and conservatives across the United States,” and hosts an annual
“Freedom Cruise” with Republican politicians such as former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Republican National
Committee Chairman Michael Steele. In addition, Freedom Alliance appears to have a relationship with Team America, a PAC formed
by Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO), dedicated to anti-immigration efforts and supporting conservative candidates.”
When Hannity promotes the Freedom Concerts on his TV and Radio shows he says, “Every penny, 100
percent of the donations are applied to the Freedom Alliance scholarship fund.”
2006 tax returns for the Freedom Alliance proves that Sean Hannity is lying about “every
penny, 100 percent” going to the Freedom Alliance scholarship fund”. (See more tax returns covering other years
for the Freedom Alliance in the related documents below)
Sean Hannity has said very little about this other than to say “its not true“, conservative
websites such as
Newsbusters have posted their support of Hannity and a statement from the president
of the Freedom Alliance, Thomas P. Kilgannon who surprisingly also says its not true.
While Sean Hannity and Col. Oliver North may wish these allegations would go away, they will not being
going away any time soon since the complaints have been filed with the IRS and the FTC.
As you may recall Tina Fey and SNL have spoofed Palin in the past, and even Sarah Palin, the real Sarah
Palin, has gone on the show to spoof herself with some self-deprecating humor.
