Chuck Baldwin on “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Laws

America has had its first killing in an attempt to confiscate an innocent man’s firearms under newly-enacted “red flag” laws.

Police officers in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, showed up to confiscate 60-year-old Gary Willis’ guns. A family member had called police and asked them to suspend Gary’s gun rights, and the local police department was more than happy to oblige.

When the pounding on the door began at 5:17 am, Gary showed up to his door holding a firearm. When he saw it was police, he put the gun down to talk to them. But then the officers informed him they were there to confiscate all of his weapons.

Imagine how you would feel. You wake up out of a sound sleep to pounding on your door. You grab a gun in case it is a criminal, but it turns out that the police are there to confiscate your guns without even accusing you of committing a crime.

Gary refused to comply with the confiscation order. That is when a fight broke out. During the struggle, police opened fire on Gary Willis, killing the 60-year-old man in his own home.

Gary was not charged or even accused of committing a crime. Police judged him guilty until proven innocent — which is exactly what EVERY “red flag” law does.

All of this happened because one extended family member told police she was worried that he was dangerous. No evidence, no proof . . . just one person’s word. And now, an innocent man is dead.

This is America’s future if establishment Republicans get their way. They are working with Democrats on a nationwide “red flag” bill to authorize these kinds of gun confiscations across the country.

And we already know that Donald Trump is solidly behind these “red flag” laws. His quote:

“Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

Soon after Trump spoke those words, Republicans in Florida (they controlled the House, Senate and Governor’s office) passed their own Hitlerian “red flag” law, (as have numerous other states). Since then hundreds of innocent Floridians have had their guns seized by police.

Now, we have our first American citizen killed by police during an attempt to enforce a “red flag” law. (I predicted this would happen as soon as I heard about these “red flag” laws.) He won’t be the last.

If people value their right to keep and bear arms, they better start banding together in large numbers to make sure these “red flag” laws do not become law in their states — or even in our entire country by an act of the federal congress.

And if you are depending on Republicans to protect your 2nd Amendment liberties, you are totally in the dark about what is going on (neither can we depend on the NRA for help). Donald Trump and a host of Republicans in DC are plotting RIGHT NOW to enact federal “red flag” laws. And Republicans (along with Democrats) are enacting “red flag” laws in State legislatures all over the country.

WAKE UP, FOLKS, BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE — OR ONE DAY POLICE WILL BE BANGING ON YOUR DOOR TO CONFISCATE YOUR GUNS.

Idiot of the Day for Wednesday, 2 November 2016

Filed under: Networking, Organizing, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 10:39 PM (22:39)

The Idiot of the Day is one Bill Tallman.

While browsing Facebook, I received a notification that a picture had been posted —


I dunno about you guys, but this is probably the most compelling ad I’ve ever gotten in the mail during election season.. Only problem for the sender is that it makes me want to vote for the person they are attempting a hit piece on, lol.. Doesn’t it make her actually sound really great?! Might make Hannah register and vote for her.. Thought and opinions very welcome!

When I asked the guy who posted the picture (an an-cap sort) who sent it to him, he replied —

Bill Tallman, the Democrat opponent, strangely enough, clearly a confusion campaign aimed at confused Republicans

The he followed up with this —

He knocked on our door about a month ago, and I chatted him up for about 30 or 40 minutes. He’s completely oblivious about libertarian perspectives on issues. I gave him a copy of Bastiat’s The Law.

Furthermore, I as a partisan Libertarian have no problems endorsing Lisa Torraco for re-election to her State Senate seat (District 18 [1]).


NOTES

  1. I’m in District 26, a Democrat safe seat.

Sow the Wind, Reap the Whirlwind

Filed under: Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 12:56 AM (00:56)

Larry Correia sums up the conversations I had with local Republicans back in 2012 over Romney and U.S. Senate candidate Heather Wilson.

I’ve added additional line breaks and spaces for readability, corrected a few typos, but otherwise haven’t changed it.

Mind you, for me it took place over the space of six months, whereas Larry Correia says it only took two days. I guess that’s part of the price of fame?

Where I differ with Larry (and most of the Republicans) is this part about McCain and Romney:

Still voted for them because they were obviously better than Obama.

Both McCain and Romney were routinely on the side of making the welfare state more expensive, the regulatory state more intrusive. Both used gun owners as a rhetorical soccer ball, to be kicked around when politically expedient. Both support the scam of “global warming,” “climate change” and the “necessity” for “clean” energy sources (solar, wind, geothermal) to be subsidized, if only it’s their people getting the subsidies.

Still, better late than never, right?

Anyway, on to the fun part —

Larry Correia

What the last two days have been like on the internet:

Me: I will never vote for Trump.

Trumpkins: Quit your whining butt hurt crybaby, you owe us your vote, so get in line!

Me: No

Trumpkins: WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

That, times a thousand.

OR:

Me: I will never vote for Trump.

Sad Republican: Lesser of two evils! SCOTUS picks!

Me. Long winded response about how a short term victory to get an amoral statist into office in our name, will tarnish the conservative movement forever, and ensure authoritarian democrat socialism for a generation.

Sad Republican: WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! (only spelled correctly, and arranged in coherent sentences)

EDIT TO ADD: And look down, already it begins again. I started responding down there, but you know what? Fuck those guys. They’ve proven over the last few months they’re too stupid to live anyway. Why waste time responding to bullshit individually, when I can just respond to all the tired bullshit up here once? It is like an industrial bullshit thresher!

WHAAAAAAAAA you might as well vote for Hillary.

Funny. You low information dipshits elected a democrat, so now it is the problem of life long conservatives that another different democrat will win because we won’t support your democrat?

But WHAAAAAAAAAAAA

EDIT 2:

WHAAAAAAA staying home is a vote for Hillary!

Nope.

WHAAAAAAAAA voting third party is a vote for Hillary!

Nope.

The best thing that ever happened for Hillary was you morons picking the one dude out of 15 she was the most likely to beat.

WHAAAAAAAA conservative SCOTUS!

You should have thought of that before you picked an amoral liberal to be your guy then, huh?

EDIT 3

WHAAAAAAAAAAAA Build a Wall!

Ain’t gonna happen. Sucker.

WHAAAAAAAAAAA! People like you should get out of America!

Try and make me. You’d better bring friends.

WHAAAAAAAA! u r teh suck i not can spell words gud America!

Well. Okay then. (check the other thread this one is surprisingly common)

EDIT 4

WHAAAAAAAA! McCain! Romney!

Yep. A big government asshole and a mushy moderate. Still voted for them because they were obviously better than Obama. Trump is Clinton in an Oompa Loompa costume. Trump makes Romney look like Reagan. Trump makes McCain look calm and rational.

WHAAAAAAA! RINO! Establishment!

So you ran an amoral statist who funds the establishment? That’ll show them.

EDIT 5: This responding once thing is fantastic! I should have thought of it years ago.
grin emoticon

Sad Wishful Thinking Republican: WHAAAAA? IF he isn’t lying recently, and IF he surrounds himself with good people (who he has been insulting and lying about for months) and IF this malignant narcissist listens to advice and IF his clownish behavior is just an act and IF he doesn’t totally drag down the GOP and IF he doesn’t cost us the senate, then MAYBE he’ll be okay? WHAAAA?

Damn dude. That’s a lot of ifs. I want a pony.

EDIT 6: WHAA? Even though he’s been in favor of gun bans his whole life and helped anti gun politicans get elected in states he doesn’t even do business in as recently as 2014, And he’s either lying and made it to 68 before he realized what the 2nd Amendment was for, or he’s just really really slow. And he still bans concealed carry on his properties . . . But his son shoots 3-gun competition, so maybe he’ll be okay on guns? WHAAA?

Good luck with that.

WHAAAAAAAAAAA! He has to fund the campaigns of liberal statists! Because that’s just good business! Sure, he overwhelmingly gave to liberals, and the only republicans he gave to were the establishment types we supposedly hate, but bribery is normal and good! EXTRA WHAAAAAAA!

You’re a fucking retard.

EDIT 7: (this one doesn’t get a WHAAA, because it is more of a SIGH) I’m not going to yell at you or demand you fall in line. Trump is evil. Hillary is worse. I have to vote for the lesser of two evils.

Can’t fault your reasoning. But for me and a lot of people? Trump is a bridge too far. We’ve had moderates and RINOs and held our nose and voted for them. But this isn’t a moderate or a RINO. This is an amoral statist authoritarian liberal, who got to where he was by being a huckster con appealing to anger and fear. He is a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He is an insult to the founders, a disgrace to our people, and in the unlikely event he wins, will probably go down in history as the man who ended any hope of small government or individual liberty in America.

I won’t have that stain on my soul.

EDIT 8: These are from the mega thread.

WHAAAAAAAAA Your bad language and hurtful words offend me! You should be more respectful and clean up your language! But Trump tells it like it is Keeping It Real!

Actually, that one is so stupid it shouldn’t get a whaa. It should get a baaaa. Sheep.

WHAAAAAAAA God has forsaken America, insert smug religious nonsense here! Now support my amoral serial adulturing pro abortion casino owner or God will smite thee!

As a religious man, all these years I thought those dumb stereotypes about idiotic hypocritical evangelicals were made up by smug liberals to mock Christians. It took Trump to show me the light. Praise the flaxen haired casino god!

EDIT 9: WHAAA! What could possibly persuade you to support Trump?

He nominates a fantastic VP and then has a stroke before November.

EDIT 10

WHAAAA! I’m poor. You are rich. My roof leaks and it is conservatives fault. I can’t afford health insurance because of Obamacare so I love the guy who supports single payer. Make America Great again! My run on paragraph complains about how unfair life is and you are being mean, then I’m going to complain about your religion and act surprised that in the year 2016 a grown up plays video games.

And the funny thing is, this particular dude opened by accusing me of having a “melt down”.
grin emoticon

EDIT 11:

WHAAAAA! If you don’t vote for Trump you can’t complain!

Oh? Watch me.

WHA? Insert Tortured Chess Game Analogy — in check because of a horrible mistake, but where a desperate gamble can still pull out an ugly win, but closes with a vow to not make that mistake in the next game . . .

Artistic, except Trump is more Hungry Hungry Hippos speed than Chess. Also, you assume after this victory there will be another game to be had. Not if Trump drags the GOP down with him there isn’t. Both sides will be the same color after that. It will be all big government statism to the end.

You want to talk chess? Try thinking more than one move ahead. Trump win now. Authoritarian win forever.

WHAAAAAAA! You are my favorite writer but I want to have Trump babies and you called me low information so my feeling are hurt!

Good. That was what I was going for. Low information is being charitable. That suggests you are basically a decent person who fell for a con. The other possibility is that you saw through his populist rhetoric, but you actually do want an authoritarian strongman in control. Now that would be really insulting.

EDIT 12:

WHA-sniff. Pretentious literary criticism guy shows up and gets all snide and bitchy because I’m professional writer, then acts aloof.

Yep. I’m rich, popular, and successful. It’s awesome. You should try it some time.

WHAAAAA! No you’re the whining WHAAAA! Don’t say I’m upset or I’ll yell at you more! WHAAAA!

She said, totally oblivious that there is another thread on my page with 3000 posts about Trumpkins declaring any criticism of their false idol whining / crying / butthurt / meltdown. Because when you’ve got no coherent policy beyond slogans, you’ve got to meet criticism somehow!

WHA! Larry you were involved in shaking up this other small political thing involving a few thousand people! Why don’t you fix all the political problems in a country with 330 million people? WHA?

Yeah, dude, I’ll get right on that.

Scrolling through . . . A bunch more from sad republicans voting for the lesser evil. Yep. Feel your pain. Scroll up. No need to respond to those again. Angry Trumpkins. Roger that.

Ooooh, a new one.

WHAAA! NO LABELS! You shouldn’t call people Trumpkins!”

Forgive me No Labels Police. Writing out Coalition of Authoritarians And Low Information Voters Motivated By Anger And Fear Who Are Now Fully Invested In A Cult of Personality That Will Allow No Dissent got a little long to keep typing.

Now back to work. I have to keep up earning lots of money so the GOP fundraisers will keep calling me. This time I can laugh at them.

EDIT 13: Went to lunch, took care of some NFA paperwork, on the drive listened to conservative talk radio show hosts tying themselves into knots trying to explain away Trump’s authoritarian or nonsensical positions.

Now I’m back. Let’s see what’s new in this thread.

WHAAAAA! No you’re the whiner! I’m not going WHAAA! I know you are but what am I! I don’t care what you think! WHAAAA!

That is indeed a very compelling argument from somebody who feels the need to post on a complete stranger’s Facebook page.

WHAAAAAA! The establishment was owned by Goldman Sachs and George Soros! Oh wait . . . Trump has only been the nominee for 48 hours and he’s already hired a Goldman Sachs partner and George Soros hedge fund manager to be his finance chief to tap into that sweet liberal establishment money . . . Uh . . . Never mind! YOU SOUND ANGRY! CRY SOME MORE! WHAAA!

Ooh, a question I missed from earlier. Which VP pick would make me likely to back a Trump ticket?

There’s a bunch, though I’m not sure who would want to hitch his horse to this dumpster fire, but you missed the important part of my statement, which would be the catastrophic stroke before November.

Lots of You Sound Angry. Well, yeah I’m angry. A plurality of half wits picked the most uniquely unsuited candidate in Republican history. Duh. But I’m also perfectly rational writing about it. We might be at the fall of the Roman Empire, but at least I live in Byzantium.

Flipping through comments the rest is pretty much more of the same. Wow, there are some real braniacs in Trump cheerleader camp. Having those guys as the new standard bearers and big thinkers will be awesome for you guys. You traded in Thomas Sowell for Sean Hannity.

Then lots of posts from the despondent republicans rationalizing having to vote for an authoritarian clown, because he might be better than the harpy. Truly, I feel for you guys. I get why you’re doing it. Just can’t in good conscience pull that lever myself. Have fun explaining, defending, or owning all of his terrible decisions until November though.
smile emoticon

EDIT 14:

LOL! (they put LOL so you know when they are trying to be funny, otherwise it is really hard to tell) This Larry Correia guy obviously has a lot of free time on his hands!

Heh . . .
He he he
Ha ha ha ha HAW
BWA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAA snort

Oh, wait . . . You’re serious?

Though that isn’t as dumb an assumption as the guy in the last thread who said I must be a welfare check cashing Obama lover. I can’t wait until I finally make it as a *real* writer and I can write one book like every five years, instead the 2 1/2 a year I do now. I’m doing these edits between breaks working on a real book. Each one takes a couple minutes. Comments like this make me think that most people write really, really slow. It must suck to be lame like that. Get faster, scrub.

WHAAA!!! Electing Hillary will start a war!

Posted simultaneously with

WHAAAA! We need to burn it all down!

Sheesh, make up your mind Trumpkins.

WHAAAAAAA! Trump lives rent free in your head! Shut up or you will be accused of having Trump Derangement Syndrome! EXTRA HARD WHAAAAA!

Yeah . . . Because how crazy is it that a writer is writing about the biggest news story in the country right now, 48 hours after it happened? I’ll just toss that one in the Better Fall In Line pile.

The only derangement I’m seeing is people trying really hard to believe that Trump isn’t a liberal progressive. That’s like psychotic break level reasoning, but many here do seem to be pulling it off.

And the Naked Trump photo. YOU MONSTER. WHAT HAS BEEN SEEN CANNOT BE UNSEEN!

EDIT 15:

WHAAAA but liberal celebrities say they’ll leave the country if Trump wins!

Nobody is actually leaving. Liberals, like Trump, lie a lot.

WHAAAAAA! 25% of federal employees will quit if Trump leaves.

Nobody is actually quitting. Federal employees, like Trump, lie a lot.

WHAAAAAAA! This is TOO LONG!

But written in five minute blocks spread out over a long work day made it hilarious.
grin emoticon

##

I do believe that covers it. I’ll come back periodically to see what fresh forms of bullshit these mealy mouthed motherfuckers have brought up to try and persuade us to vote for their amoral statist over the other amoral statist.

FINAL EDIT — Oh man, that was fun. For anybody reading this whole thing, it started early this morning. About every hour or so I’d tune back in, read the new stuff, and comment once. I wish I would have thought of this years ago!

I had a mega thread the other day, but with FB’s ridiculous subthread comment system, I realized I was having 20 simultaneous arguments, and repeating myself because it was all the same thing over and over. This was way cooler, and with the added benefit of not having to listen to pedantic twats playing the childish Get The Last Word In game

[ABQ Journal] ABQ mayor’s marijuana veto survives challenge

ABQ mayor’s marijuana veto survives challenge

By Dan McKay / Journal Staff Writer
Published: Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 at 7:26pm
Updated: Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 at 11:09pm

Mayor Richard Berry’s veto of a marijuana decriminalization bill withstood a challenge from Albuquerque city councilors on Wednesday.

Democrats on the City Council failed to persuade one of their Republican colleagues to change positions and join them in favor of a veto override.

But no one changed positions. The override attempt failed on a 5-4 vote along party lines.

It takes six of nine councilors to override a mayoral veto.

About a half-dozen speakers urged councilors to override the veto and enact the legislation – which called for making it a civil offense, not a criminal violation, under city law to possess an ounce or less of marijuana.

A companion bill sought to make marijuana a low priority for law enforcement.

Berry, a Republican, vetoed both proposals. He said they conflicted with state and federal law.

Councilors Isaac Benton and Rey Garduño, who co-sponsored the legislation, said cities have authority to set their own penalties for marijuana possession. That gives police officers discretion to cite people under either a local ordinance or under state law, they said.

Furthermore, the two argued, local voters already support reducing marijuana penalties.

“We don’t have to wait for the federal government or the state of New Mexico to tell us how to govern our own community, or respond to the voice of the community,” Benton said as he read a joint statement.

About 60 percent of Bernalillo County voters last year expressed support for decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana. That was in response to a nonbinding question on the general-election ballot.

None of the council’s four Republicans spoke about the veto Wednesday. But they’ve previously said they don’t view city government as the right venue for changing drug laws.

That didn’t stop people from trying to change their minds.

Mike Blessing of the Libertarian Party of New Mexico told councilors they were supporting organized crime if they refuse to change the law. Support for an override, however, means “you’re standing up for free markets,” Blessing said.

Other supporters said that a marijuana conviction can make it hard to find a job and that enforcement draws resources away from more-serious crimes.

“The war on drugs has been a terrible failure,” Garduño said. “We know this isn’t working.”

In New Mexico, marijuana use is legal only for medical purposes.

Supporting the override were Benton, Garduño, Ken Sanchez, Diane Gibson and Klarissa Peña, all Democrats.

Republicans Brad Winter, Dan Lewis, Trudy Jones and Don Harris voted “no.”

“Intellectual freedom cannot exist without political freedom; political cannot exist without economic freedom; a free mind and a free market are corollaries.” — Ayn Rand

Dear New Mexicans, — 1 item —

Breaking: This came in moments ago.

Progressive Democrat, Pat Davis — founder of Progressive Now and running for city council, District 6, is running against the Republican candidate, Hess “Hessito” Yntema.

We need very importantly to elect the Republican, Hessito. There is a good opportunity to do so.

District 6 voters have 3 choices for City Councilor: Progressive Pat Davis, another Democrat who is challenging him and Hess “Hessito” Yntema, a Republican.

Whatever your party affiliation, you should know that Pat Davis has a DWI record, about which he lied to the Albuquerque Journal.

He told the Journal that he accepts responsibility for the arrest. However, the Journal has evidence that that is not exactly true. The Journal states that Mr. Davis’ attorney tried for months to have the charges dismissed, filing several motions to that end. Only when those motions to dismiss were denied did Mr. Davis “accept responsibility.”

Personally, I urge voters to vote for the Republican. With the possibility of a bigger effort coming for the so-called “fair” work week that the Progressives are pushing, it is vital to strengthen the Republican position on the City Council. I surely hope everyone will vote early.

Thank you for your attention to this e-mail.

What evidence exists that Little Hessie actually cares about those Tea Party values of laissez-faire free markets, Constitutionally-limited government, individual rights and public-sector fiscal restraint?

It should be plain for all who do care about those values that someone simply having “REP” printed on their voter registration card isn’t sufficient proof of a candidate’s fidelity to the cause of freedom.

Will Hess Jr. stand up for those Tea Party values against the likes of the Keynesian Richard Berry when it comes time to vote against such “improvements” as the 50-mile bike path, the summertime skating rink?

How about when Friedman Recycling demands a guaranteed profit margin from its contract with the Berry Administration?

What is his position on the right to own and carry weapons, as protected by the Second Amedment and Article II, Section 6 of the New Mexico State Constitution?

Will Hess Jr. stand up for that right, or will he treat gun owners as Nate Gentry, Monica Youngblood and Susana Martinez have in the past — as a political soccer ball, to be kicked around when it’s expedient to do so?

Trump and the GOP

Filed under: Correspondence, Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:37 AM (06:37)

 

6/29/2015 5:15 PM:

“Cultural Marxism and its many variants, such as political correctness and multiculturalism, is now firmly ensconced in the White House and the Democrat Party, while the Republican Party, dominated by eunuchs and the avaricious, continuously accommodates its “principles” to match an ever-shifting leftward movement of the “conventional wisdom.” It does so solely to maintain its place as the token opposition and grifter at the federal tax-revenue trough for the personal financial benefits that it provides.

I’ve never seen a more perfect summation of the GOP’s “principles” or more accurately, lack thereof, principles — besides the following:

  1. Milking the donors.
  • Filling as many public offices with fellow GOP trough-feeders as possible.
  • Milking the rest of the population on behalf of themselves and their sponsors, using the tax-feeding officeholders.

Perhaps Rand Paul will follow in his father’s footsteps and be an exception to this. Possibly Ted Cruz, as well. As for the rest, they’re mere media-hounding streetwalker wannabes, such as Mr. Trump . . . .

I like Donald Trump in a half-hearted way. I like his macho no-nonsense response to those who try to pretend business is merely the handmaiden of politics. I like that he is aware of his own hard work to build his business and greatly increase the fortune his father bequeathed to him.

Except for his corporate bankruptcies, that is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Trump#Legal_affairs

I like that he is proud of his success, neither meek or humble. But I don’t like what I consider a failing of many business people, a lack of grasp of fundamental principles.

Donald Trump’s guiding principle seems to be limited to one: Donald Trump.

Whatever keeps him in the limelight seems to be OK with him.

Until I see otherwise, I’ll consider his 2016 campaign to be prep work for another season of The Apprentice.

I fear that like Joe McCarthy, he will go overboard and kill his own best characteristics, making himself a buffoon similar to Joe Biden if he does not become more fully acquainted with the basic premises of his political position.

Trump is very, very good at making a buffoon of himself.

Back in 2008, Trump attempted to run for president on the Reform Party ticket, advocating a 14% tax on rich people.

For example, recently, it looks as though he paid people $50 a head to show up at his “presidential announcement” rally and make it look like they like him:

“NM Gubernatorial Candidate Adam Kokesh” ?

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:50 AM (02:50)

4/20/2015 1:05 PM:

So what has former NM Gubernatorial Candidate Adam Kokesh been up to lately? He’s become a West Coaster like Mark Dice (watch on his YouTube channel) and taken to interviewing Obama supporters.

Except that Adam Kokesh never ran for Governor, in New Mexico or any other state.

Adam ran for New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional seat in 2010, and was given the Ron Paul treatment (slam the door in his face every time) by the GOPNM hierarchy.

Spam, Spam and More Spam

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:04 PM (18:04)

Another bit of spam circulated to me from the infrared-emitting meat-puppet (R) in the Billingsley “vs.” Bregman turd-polishing contest commonly referred to as “the U.S. Senate race” :

9/27/2014 6:26 AM:

From the Weh campaign, Albuquerque

“Why is long-time entrenched career politician Tom Udall running negative campaign ads? Because he doesn’t want you to know the facts.

Udall’s new attack ad today claims we want to deny seniors their healthcare. Who is he kidding?

He’s the only candidate in this race that voted to cut Medicare by $716 billion when he cast his deciding vote for ObamaCare! He cast a deciding vote to rob Medicare to help pay for it. “Tom Foolery” at its best!

So the GOP plan to “support health freedom” is to complain about Obama’s 21st century scheme of medical national socialism by saying it will take away from Lyndon Johnson’s 1965 scheme of medical national socialism?

They do know that Lyndon Johnson was a Democrat? One of the people that they say they’re against, correct?

So much for the GOP supporting those Tea Party ideals of free markets, limited government and individual rights.

But the reality of campaign advertising is that it can influence voters — even if it’s not true. And Udall’s ad is not only NOT true, it’s almost a joke! But now we have to quickly craft an ad to reply to this false attack, and that costs money we hadn’t planned on.

What’s the matter? Did Weh run out of funds from his profiteering shell-game known as “CSI Aviation” ? Not enough taxpayer FRNs coming in from We The Fleeced to count as “contributions” ?

He can always pass the hat to Slick Willard Romney.

But Weh has a two-shot here – after Weh responds to the latest Udall attempt at mudslinging, then Weh can do another ad telling us how great that ad was – isn’t that how it works?

Please help us respond to Udall’s attack so we can get the real truth out to our voters. Please give $75, $150, or $250 to help us stand up to Tom Udall.

Ask David Clements for some cash.

From NMC4F

From David Clements’ campaign regarding the allegation made “on a website called BernalilloCoverup.com, Clements accuses Weh’s campaign manager of hacking Clements’ campaign email account.” [1] . . .

According to the Clements campaign yesterday regarding the alleged hacking, “A criminal investigation has been initiated. A case file was opened today.”

Evidence has been turned over to the proper authorities.

Here’s information on the dispute between Clements and Weh:

Coverup in the Bernalillo County GOP [1]

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:24 AM (02:24)

Over the past ten days the Republican Delegates to the State Pre-Primary Convention have been flooded with stories and rumors of what took place at the Bernalillo Pre-Convention Meeting on February 5th, 2014.

In order for our party to be unified in defeating Tom Udall, we are releasing all documents pertaining to the events of February 5th, with an understanding of how those events took place and how people have been pressured to change their stories to benefit the Weh campaign.

We hope that after reading these materials you will come to your own conclusion as to whether any wrongdoing occurred at the Bernalillo Pre-Convention Meeting, or the events that transpired following that night.

What Occurred On February 5th?

Three days prior to the Pre-Convention Meeting, the Bernalillo rules committee met and changed the county rules to allow “those that could not attend the convention due to weather be allowed to be voted upon as a delegate by those attending the event.”

New Mexico State Rules, which supersede any county rules declare that any rule change must occur at least 28 days prior to any county convention, and the Clements campaign was notified of this change only an hour prior to the start of the convention. (1) (2) (3)

Any challenge to this ruling was required to be made no later than one hour before the start of any county convention, which happens to be the exact time that the Clements campaign was informed of the rule change.(4)

The second, and more egregious, error made by the county committee involves the election of at large delegates.

After delegates were nominated and elected by each ward of Bernalillo county, 30 delegate positions were still available to be elected to the state convention. Past convention precedent clearly shows that these “at-large” delegates are to be elected from the pool of unelected delegate nominees remaining in person at the county convention. Instead, they were elected from a list of non-present persons provided to the meeting by Diego Espinoza, Allen Weh’s own campaign manager. (4)

Throughout this process the ballots were “secured” by none other than the treasurer for Allen Weh’s campaign, and “ballot counters” were actually Allen Weh staff members who were even wearing campaign materials. (5) (6)

What Was Done To Correct Any Wrongdoing?

By the deadline to contest the decision, February 10th, multiple protests were submitted to the chairman of the Bernalillo County Republican Party, Frank Ruvolo. (7) (21)

A decision on the issue was returned later on February, 10th. He had decided that the at-large delegates were improperly placed and would be removed from the Bernalillo slate. (8)

This decision was aided with input from Dr. Charles Tipton, and input from State Republican Chairman John Billingsley. (9) (10)

The matter seemed to be put to rest until Chairman Ruvolo suddenly reversed his decision citing “long discussions” and reseating the at-large delegates. (11)

How the Clements Campaign Responded

On February 17th, David Clements released an open letter to Allen Weh informing him of what had occurred, and sought the opportunity to work together to find an equitable solution to what happened in Bernalillo County. (12)

Later on February 17th Diego Espinoza responded to David Clements claiming that no protests had been filed and that David’s letter was a stunt. David Clements quickly responded. (12)

After this email was sent, emails were circulate from Frank Ruvolo, Dr. Charles Tipton, and Chairman John Billingsley seemingly denying that they had ever provided testimony or decisions that would call into question the events of February 5th. (13) (14)

Chairman Billingsley even emailed every delegate in response to Clements’ open letter. (15) (16)

What Happened Next?

The latest in this series of events occurred on February 21st, when the Clements campaign email account was hacked by a staff member of the Allen Weh Campaign.

Diego Espinoza, the Weh campaign manager, abused the Clements email system and used it to resend the open letter to multiple delegates. (17)

Mr. Espinoza willingly did this numerous times, and some delegates received over 8 copies of the open letter to Allen Weh.

The Clements campaign went to their Internet service provider to find out why delegates were receiving multiple copies of the open letter. They were provided with a link that identified Mr. Espinoza as having willingly forwarded the email in excess of 500 times. (18) (19) (20)

There is no question that Diego Espinoza acted with ill intent in regards to David’s open letter to Allen Weh.
