Jackson and Martin are Right: Planned Parenthood’s African American Genocide Makes the KKK Look Insignificant

May 31st, 2013

In the effort to paint Jackson as the most extreme candidate in history, the Democrats and their media allies have latched onto the following statement:

“The Democrat Party has created an unholy alliance between certain so-called  civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black  babies by the tens of millions. Planned Parenthood has been far more lethal to  black lives than the KKK ever was.”

Senator Steve Martin took to facebook to defend the Lieutenant Governor Nominee’s statement.

A critical analysis on the truth of EW’s condemned statement, would have to conclude its accuracy… There is in fact an alliance that the democrat party oversees and assures, between people who refer to themselves as civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood was in fact established by Margaret Sanger for the primary purpose of killing black babies (she said so herself in recorded statements). And, it has been successful in carrying out its original mission, killing tens of millions of black babies. And as such, it has been far more lethal to black lives than the KKK (another original creation of the democrat party in the south) ever was. click here for full statement

This brought him under fire from the media for daring to compare the liberals most sacred organization to one of the most racist organizations in U.S. history.

Since some are rather intent on vilifying the messenger, let’s take a look at the truth of the statements made.

The Klu Klux Klan is a racist organization that lynched many people for being black or sympathizing with blacks.  That is detestable.

That said, let’s look at the numbers…

Walter Hoye, founder and president of the Issues4Life Foundation, shared those statistics at a press conference on Tuesday where Black clergy and other leaders gathered in response to the guilty verdict in the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murdering three newborn babies.

“Right now to give some of us just a perspective of the impact of abortion on demand in the Black community, according to the archives of the Tuskegee Institute, from 1882 to 1968 — 86 years — the Ku Klux Klan lynched 3,446 Negroes,” Hoye said. “While it took the Klan 86 years to accomplish this, abortion on demand in America accomplishes that in less than four days.”  full analysis of the numbers can be found at this site.

Another report looked at the annual number of African-Americans aborted and found the following comparable statistics based off of CDC numbers and the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute.

Abortion is the number one killer of black lives in the United States. More than HIV. More than diabetes. More than heart disease. More than cancer. Abortion snuffs out more black lives than all other causes of death, combined (according to the CDC). Using statistics from 2008 (because that is the most recent year available which provides nationwide abortion stats), there were 363,705 abortions in the black community. According to pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, this number represents 30% (the percentage of black abortions) of the nation’s 1,212,350 abortions in 2008. All other causes of death amounted to 285,522.  full details can be found here.

Watch the following video, and tell me based on numbers that Jackson and Martin are wrong.  If they aren’t, you should be just as outraged as they are.

 

Michael Futrell Equates Campaigning with Sacrificing One’s Life in the Military

May 28th, 2013

Yesterday America celebrated Memorial Day.  We remembered the incredible sacrifice our armed services and their families have made of time, hardship, and their own lives to preserve the freedoms we enjoy.  We partied, we rested, and we remembered.

Well, everyone except Michael Futrell.  You would think that someone running to represent a district that includes Quantico Marine Base would take a moment to remember the profound sacrifices made by the U.S. Marine Corps as they won many crucial battles while preserving our freedom.

Instead, many in Eastern Prince William County were astonished to see the following message posted all day long on Michael Futrell’s campaign fb page.

Who is up for knocking some doors today?!!! With your help, we will win the election one neighborhood at a time!

Really?  On the day when we are thanking people for sacrificing for our freedoms, you ask people to “sacrifice” to knock doors for you, and never think to thank those who sacrificed by giving their lives so you had the freedom to campaign?  How can Michael Futrell cheapen the real sacrifice of life, limb, and family members that we are remembering today?

Memorial Day is when most Americans talked or listened to people talk about the incredible sacrifices our military has made to protect our freedom.  Michael Futrell wants to represent Quantico, the crossroads of the Marine Corps.  He can’t find the time to say anything about the military, and on the day America uses the word “sacrifice” to refer to the heroism of our military, he uses it to ask people to volunteer for his campaign.

I guess Futrell is so busy “Moving Virginia’s Future Forward” he can’t take a moment to remember the past.

I wonder how people responded when Futrell and his friends “sacrificed” today and bothered people when they were having picnics with their friends…

As a parting thought, here is Mark Dudenhefer’s Memorial Day Greeting.

Dear Neighbor,

Blessed. That is the first work that comes to my mind when I reflect on Memorial Day and all that it means.

In the Bible, Jesus shares with us one of many profound messages in John 15:13 – “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” How blessed are we to have had countless men and women display what Christ describes as the greatest display of love for another defending our freedom?

As you relax, visit with loved ones, and enjoy the sunshine, I hope you will join me in reflecting on how blessed we are in America and in the Commonwealth. Especially, those that laid down their lives for us. Freedom is a gift that we all enjoy every day. We must not forget that it comes at a great cost. I also hope that you will join me in praying for the future of our Nation and for those that are defending our freedom and our livelihood today.

May you and your loved ones have a safe and memorable Memorial Day.

Mark Dudenhefer
Delegate, 2nd District

Update: At 5am the day after Memorial Day, Futrell posted something about our armed forces.  Looks like I’ve gotten him to delete issue pages off his website, and update his fb page.

Mark Obenshain and the Truth About SB 962: Extremist or Gotcha Politics?

May 24th, 2013

Democrats are excited that they have found their chance to paint Mark Obenshain as an “extreme” “uncaring” right winger.  If you listen to his detractors, Mark believes in throwing women in jail for not reporting their miscarriage to the police within 24 hours.

Upon further review, this is actually a situation of seeing a problem, trying to fix it, but then withdrawing the legislation when no solution was available.

So what was the problem?  In May of 2008, a woman in Rockingham Co. entered a plea agreement of counseling, one year probation, and a 30 day suspended sentence for having thrown her newborn baby in the trash.  Because the body was never found, and no evidence was found to counteract the woman’s claim that the baby was stillborn, this was the maximum sentence possible.  In light of this incident, the Commonwealth’s Attorney Marsha Garst stated, “I entered that plea deal with great reluctance, but because of the current status of the laws in the United States and the Commonwealth, as well as the lack of evidence in this case, and that we never recovered a body, it was necessary in order to preserve a conviction.”

Naturally since Mark Obenshain’s district includes Rockingham Co., she went to him to try to get the law changed.  Mark received this request almost right before session and worked with the Commowealth’s Attorney and others on the original draft.  The bill he introduced was flawed and he understood that which is why he had absolutely no intention of letting it pass in the form it was introduced.  Mark introduced the bill with the plan of using it as a vehicle to address the problem.  He then met with every women’s group he could including NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the Family Foundation to try to amend the legislation to address the problem.  The conclusion of these meetings was a realization that any language that would address the problem would have unacceptable unintended consequences.

What was Mark’s response?  He did what every responsible legislator who unsuccessfully tries to address a problem does.  Before any vote was taken on the bill, the bill was “stricken at the request of the patron.

So what was so wrong with what Mark did here?  Is there anything wrong with introducing a flawed piece of legislation in order to amend it to fix a problem?  Of course not.  That happens all the time in politics.  Mark Obenshain was not going to allow legislation to throw women in prison for not reporting a miscarriage to move forward.  The only reason that after four years, this legislation is being discussed again is that a certain party is trying to twist Mark’s record to paint him as extreme.  If the best they can come up with is a bill that he asked be killed, then they are clearly more interested in gotcha politics than pursuing the truth.

For a full statement from Obenshain’s office on the legislation, see below.

“At the request of one of his local Commonwealth’s Attorneys, Senator Obenshain carried legislation (SB 962 of 2009) dealing with a specific law enforcement issue. As sometimes happens, the legislation that emerged was far too broad, and would have had ramifications that neither he nor the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office ever intended. Senator Obenshain is strongly against imposing any added burden for women who suffer a miscarriage, and that was never the intent of the legislation. He explored possible amendments to address the bill’s unintended consequences, and met with representatives of both Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice in an attempt to identify a solution. Ultimately, however, he was not satisfied that any amendment could sufficiently narrow the scope of the bill to eliminate these unintended consequences, so he had the bill stricken at his own request.”

Corey Stewart Continues to Skirt the Law in Upcoming Jackson Attacks

May 14th, 2013

In March we had two waves of anonymous attacks on Scott Lingamfelter followed by some anonymous attacks on Snyder which Jim Riley rather convincingly tied to Stewart.  The beginning of this month two sets of mailers went out under the name of a defunct group named Virginians for Limited Government, attacking many of the candidates and promoting Stewart.  In this situation it was obvious who the mailers were from, and the anonymous attacks continued.  Breitbart ran an article highlighting the highly questionable legality of the Virginians for Limited Government attack pieces.

Now, this is something important to remember, the only people with original access to the addresses, phone numbers, and emails of convention delegates are the campaigns.  So any third party groups contacting convention delegates got their list from a campaign.

Over the weekend, Stewart’s newest line of attack was revealed.  He sees E.W. Jackson as a threat, and has been trying to get people to attack E.W. based on his past bankruptcies.

On Saturday morning I was contacted by a reporter about a document of opposition research he had received about E.W. Jackson’s financial history.  From the email and the properties document on the file, it was clear that this document was created Friday morning, May 10, and forwarded to the reporter.  When I talked to the reporter, I immediately asked if he got the research from Corey, he admitted that he did when I pressed him.

That afternoon, I received an anonymous email from a vatruthsquad2000@gmail.com which released another document of information about tax information on Jackson.  Besides the content, the email also caught my eye because, while it is a different address, it has the same moniker as the vile anti-Stimpson email sent out at the beginning of the month.

As I started researching the Stewart campaigns effort to discredit Jackson based on his financial history, I discovered something even more disturbing. Multiple sources confirmed to me that over the weekend Corey Stewart personally contacted third party groups offering to pay the $12,000.00 if they would send out a $10,000.00 mailer to the convention delegates attacking E.W. for his financial history.  While I am told, that Stewart was turned down by some, I am also told he eventually found someone who agreed.  If you find an anonymous mailer in your mailbox right before the convention, or even after the convention, if the mailer gets stuck in the mail, you will know who it is from.

While I both trust my sources, and generally hate anonymous blog commenters,  I find it interesting that while I was working on verifying sources for this article, an anonymous commenter named, TheGipper, started posting essentially the same story on multiple blogs.

I won’t attempt to be a state campaign law expert, but it sure seems like what Corey has been doing with the anonymous videos/calls, the VLG mailer, and the Jackson attack line is skirting the law.  Virginia’s campaign finance system is built on unlimited money but absolute transparency in disclosing expenditures and donors.  When organizations and campaigns are working hard to conceal donors and expenditures, it sure seems like they are undermining the purpose and premise of the state’s campaign finance system.

Scott Lingamfelter is a Man of Character and Conviction

May 12th, 2013

A couple weeks ago, I attended a Democrat candidate forum.  Astonishingly in Northern Virginia, Scott Lingamfelter is more despised by Liberals than Ken Cuccinelli is.  While every candidate made it clear that they disliked the Attorney General, the hisses and cat calls at the mention of the name “Scott Lingamfelter” were shocking.  They know him as someone who fights aggressively for conservative principles.

Scott Lingamfelter is a man of conviction, and his unapologetic fight for conservative principles is what makes liberals hate him, independent support him, and conservative like myself excited to vote for him this coming Saturday.

I grew up tracking legislation in the VA General Assembly, and noticed early on that Scott regularly sponsored or cosponsored legislation I supported.  In 2011, I had the opportunity to work with Scott when I worked on Jeff Frederick’s campaign.  Scott is a man of incredible loyalty.  When he told Jeff he supported him, he didn’t just offer an endorsement quote, he did everything he could to help Jeff win a crucial race.  I also had the opportunity to view him up close and was impressed by his view of the role of government, his understanding of state issues, and his strategic and aggressive approach to campaigning.

His loyalty and record is why almost every conservative leader in Prince William County is supporting Scott.  They know he is a man of integrity, and a conservative with strong convictions.

It is impossible for anyone to have a record of public service that everyone will agree with 100%, but when viewed as a whole, Scott’s record is that of a conservative warrior.  Scott is the leader in the House of Delegates on the 2nd Amendment.  He is unashamedly pro-life and believes in the importance of traditional marriage.  He is one of the House leaders on school choice.  He is constantly looking for ways to make government more efficient, this is why he introduced the bill to audit VDOT.

Did I mention that when Republicans wanted to restrict a farmers right to use their own land, he fought hard this last session against the establishment for private property owners?  Scott’s committed fight for conservative principles is why conservative leaders like Brenda Pogge, and Dick Black are standing with Scott.

Scott Lingamfelter is a natural born leader, having served in the General Assembly for 12 years he has been the go to guy when it comes to protecting out 2nd Amendment rights. Scott spent considerable time protecting all of our God-given rights during a career in the Army that spanned 28 years! As a matter of fact, former Congressmen Colonel Allen West said, “I would have followed that man to theends of the earth.” Allen West served under Scott’s command and has personally endorsed him! I’ve known Scott for 10 years and have served in the House of Delegates with him for 6 years. He sits behind me and I know that he always “has my back.” In the “Amen Corner” of the chamber where he and I sit we call him “The Colonel.” He is a bulldog and I literally can see Scott Lingamfelter presiding over the Senate more than any other candidate for Lieutenant Governor. ~Brenda Pogge

You should listen to other people who have worked with Scott over the years.

While he has had to respond to some of the underhanded negative attacks leveled at him, as a man of character, Scott has run a clean issues driven race.

He is a campaigner who gets Democrats and independents to vote for him.  He sticks unwaveringly to his convictions, and understands how to lead.  I look forward to supporting Scott Lingamfelter as LG and I hope you will join me on Saturday.

Corey Stewart: “I’m Not A Witch” ..or Drunk or…

May 4th, 2013

Today was Corey Stewart’s day of denials.  Instead of being effective, it put him in the company of Christine O’Donnell.  Today I received an email from Corey Stewart in which he wanted everyone to know he isn’t a drunkard.

“I’ve had ridiculous claims made against me before. False accusations are what some political operatives rely on when they lack a positive agenda and real ideas. But even I was a little surprised at being called a drunk Catholic. Yes, I am a Catholic. No, I’m not a drunk Catholic.

In fact, let’s clear the air: I’ve never been on the wrong side of the law. I’m happily married with two great sons. My life’s record as an employee and an employer is unblemished. And, while I have compassion for those who struggle with addictions, I’ve never undergone treatment for alcohol or drugs. There’s no place in Virginia politics for the kind of false personal attacks that have been leveled at me in recent days.”

First rule of politics, is not to talk about things you want ignored.  Like Christine O’Donnell, who told us “I’m not a witch,” now we all know Corey Stewart “isn’t” a drunkard.

Honestly Corey’s denial of what everyone in Prince William County already knows rings as true as his denial of the anonymous attacks.  You see, Virginians are seeing through the lies that make up Corey’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor, and it seem like he is becoming unhinged.

Read the full email to see him deny all at once, almost every allegation thrown against him including meeting Monica Lewinsky and traveling to Argentina.

(As an aside it is interesting he doesn’t deny being behind the anonymous attacks.  He probably doesn’t want to lie about that too many times.)

Honestly, Corey’s denials and senseless attacks on others are so bad, it’s almost like he is trying to abort his own campaign.

UPDATE: Some have been saying that I am attacking Corey Stewart for being drunk.  Those people probably didn’t take the time to read this post.  What happened was an anonymous email that I have yet to see was sent out sharing what many in Northern Virginia have seen for years, Corey has a propensity for getting drunk and while intoxicated doing and saying embarrassing things.  In response to this and many other allegations, Corey sent an email entitled “We Saw It Coming” in which he takes paragraphs to tell everyone that he doesn’t get drunk.  I am not in any way arguing that Corey has done anything illegal, but the idea that Corey sent an email to deny getting drunk is worth many a laugh.

Terry McAuliffe’s Values: The Democrat Party not his Wife who Just Gave Birth

May 2nd, 2013

Terry McAuliffe had the audacity to release an ad talking about family values.  As Andrew Kaczynski pointed out, let’s read what Terry McAuliffe wrote just six years ago.

Dorothy was starting to well up in the backseat. She was having trouble understanding how I could be taking my wife and newborn baby to a fund-raiser on our way home from the hospital. We got to the dinner and by then Dorothy was in tears, and I left her with Justin and went inside. Little Peter was sleeping peacefully and Dorothy just sat there and poor Justin didn’t say a word. He was mortified. I was inside maybe fifteen minutes, said a few nice things about Marty, and hurried back out to the car. I felt bad for Dorothy, but it was a million bucks for the Democratic Party and by the time we got home and the kids had their new little brother in their arms, Dorothy was all smiles and we were one big happy family again. Nobody ever said life with me was easy.

Really Terry?  Do you have no sympathy?  Where is the natural love and care a husband has for his wife who just gave birth?  If you can’t even understand and value your wife’s needs, how can you possibly value the needs of Virginia’s citizens over your own personal ambition?  What man stops at a work function on the way home from his wife’s giving birth and live’s with himself?  Imagine his response when the next tragedy happens in Virgina.  “I felt bad for X, but it was a million bucks for the Democrat Party. Nobody ever said life with me as governor would be easy.”

The next time Terry McAuliffe has the audacity to talk about caring for people remember one thing.  Cuccinelli is the man who will stop while driving to a political event to help a man in a burning vehicle, while Terry McAuliffe is too caught up in politics to care more about his wife than politics just minutes after she gives birth.
