Mark Twain was right!


Mark Twain one famously quipped: "If you don't read the newspapers you are uninformed. If you do read the newspapers you are misinformed!" He also once quipped: "A lie can travel around the world, before the truth can put on its' shoes.

Both are certainly true if you read the hit piece on me by Brian Perry in the Saturday's (May 31st) edition of the Laurel Leader Call. To be fair to Brian, he quoted a piece from Ya'll Politics. Ya'll Politics has a history of inaccuracies worse than "MoveOn.Org". Ya'll Politics, an arm of the Republican establishment, seems to always play fast and loose with the truth, never letting the facts get in the way of a good story.

The original story came out of the Tom Carter campaign. The story continues to be circulated by the Tom Carter campaign, even though Tom Carter and his staff know it is not true. These were circulated about by one person who was kicked off the Chris McDaniel campaign staff and another who was arrested for his part in the Rose Cochran picture taking debacle. You can see from the source that the people involved had some problems with honesty and credibility.

The two people circulating the story then duped some useful idiots into their ranks and sold them the lie that I had tried to extort a sum of money from Tom Carter to get out of the race. Another story circulated by this bunch had me going to get out of the race and endorse Gene Taylor. These stories have been circulating for a couple of months and refuse to die. I recently had an e-mail asking me if I had endorsed Gene Taylor yet? This story may finally die in a couple of days after the June 3rd Primary. By then it should be obvious that I did not get out of the race, nor endorse Gene Taylor.

The establishment politicians are in a panic. It looks like the Tea Party candidates are in a good spot to take a couple of seats in Mississippi away from the Haley Barbour establishment.

The reason that the establishment politicians and bureaucrats hate the Tea Party and their candidates is easy to understand. If the Tea Party candidates are elected, they will work for the people and not the party and will actually make some changes in Washington, D.C. They will actually fix something. Fixing the problems with the Federal Government is not rocket science. We just need some people representing us in D.C. who will do what is right for the people they represent and not kowtow to Obama and the Washington bureaucracy who are busy lining their pockets with taxpayer dollars.

Palazzo votes for John Boehner as Speaker PDF Print E-mail
The Hill -  Boehner narrowly reelected speaker of the house

Washington, D.C.

Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) was reelected Speaker of the House on Thursday after a week of rumors of a possible GOP revolt. Boehner won a bare majority in a vote that saw nine Republicans vote for other GOP members, and several others who abstained from voting or voted "present." Two years ago, Boehner won all 241 available GOP votes.In a vote that opened the 113th Congress, Boehner received 220 votes, compared to 192 for Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the minority leader. Fourteen members voted for other candidates or present. Boehner needed 218 votes to win reelection assuming a full roster of 435 members voted, but only 426 voted, so he only needed 214 votes.Defectors from Boehner included Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), who voted for Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho). Rep. Steve Pearce (R-N.M.) and two freshmen, Reps. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) and Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), all voted for Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), but Cantor himself voted for Boehner.Reps. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) voted for outgoing member Allen West (R-Fla.). Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) voted for former Comptroller General David Walker. Speakers of the House do not have to be members of the House, although historically they all have been.Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) voted for Amash, and Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) voted for Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).Boehner was reelected just days after facing one his toughest tests as Speaker of the House — the negotiations over the fiscal cliff. The final will add $4 trillion to the debt, according to the Congressional Budget Office, and it won the support of a minority of Boehner's conference who criticized the measure for a lack of spending cuts.

Why We Need to Fire Palazzo PDF Print E-mail

A message from Ron Vincent, candidate for U.S. Congress, Mississippi's 4th Congressional District:

The situation that we have in south Mississippi is typical of what we are facing across the country. For more than twenty years we had a congressional representative that represented the party and not the people. With Steven Palazzo the situation has gotten worse and not better.

  • Steven voted for the continuing resolutions to maintain spending levels. He voted twice to raise the debt ceiling.
  • He voted for the Defense Authorization act. He voted to extend the Patriot Act. He voted for the ‘Super Committee’.  He did this in the face of wide spread opposition from his constituents.
  • In spite of promising  not to do it, he voted for the budget knowing that it would fund Planned Parenthood. The people in south Mississippi are strongly opposed to Federal funding for abortion.
  • He ran on a platform to “Fire Nancy Pelosi”, but votes more like Nancy Pelosi than a conservative congressman. (Now we need to Fire Steven Palazzo!)
  • On many issues even Bennie Thompson has a better voting record than Steven Palazzo. The people of Mississippi deserve better.

Further, Palazzo had been an embarrassment to Mississippi due to the mistakes and missteps he has made since taking office.

  • He continues to have problems with turnover of his staffers.
  • The weekend of the Navy - Southern Miss football game, his staffers rented an apartment in Maryland, in his name. The resulting wild melee required the intervention of the police. The place was so badly trashed that the security deposit was forfeited.
  • He continues to have ethics problems with ownership of his CPA Firm. He abused his congressional staff, using them for babysitting and other personal jobs; another ethics violation. All of this received wide spread coverage in the news media, both in Washington D.C. and in Mississippi.

It is exactly this kind of politics and legislative malfeasance that have bought our country to the verge of collapse. This has to be stopped and reversed! This cannot continue. Even the people in congress admit that this is not sustainable, but they continue the policies that have caused the problems oblivious to the hardship and suffering they are causing. This is precisely what happens when we let the Republican Party choose our elected representatives. If you put clowns in charge, you should not be surprised when a circus breaks out.

In the 4th District, we have an opportunity to do something about it.

Palazzo is running for re-election and will have the solid backing of the powers that be in the MS GOP. As a result of his toeing the party line, he is well funded and will not be defeated easily. That is why I need your help!

We have a chance to strike a blow against the liberal/progressive cancer that has been eating away at our Republic since Woodrow Wilson.  We can do this by electing real Christian conservatives like me to go to congress and add our voice to those like Michelle Bachmann, Jason Chaffetz, Allen West, Paul Ryan and a precious few others who are trying to hold back the on rushing tide of socialism and irresponsible spending, that is destroying our great Nation.

Please help me any way you can.

Thanks for your attention. I hope you all have a happy and prosperous 2013 and may God continue to bless our great Nation.
