Probably my favorite story this week was about a Texas judge who is convinced that a second-term for Obama means a new civil war:
During his interview Judge Head said that in the event of civil unrest he’s concerned the President would hand over sovereignty of the United States to the U.N. and that the American public would react violently.
“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the U.S. to the United Nations, what’s going to happen when that happens?” Judge Head told FOX 34 in Lubbock.
“I’m thinking worse case scenario,” he explained. “Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe…we’re not just talking a few riots or demonstrations.”
While I certainly see big trouble if there is another Obama term in office, I think he might be jumping the gun a little bit. Certainly one-world government is a goal of the political left but they’re easing us into that. We won’t be handed over to the U.N. until a few administrations later.
Anywho, you have this crazy Republican judge so naturally the Democrats are outraged and all that jazz, but then the judge throw in this wrinkle:
Lubbock County Judge Tom Head is convinced that Mr. Obama winning a second term would lead to a revolt by the American people and he’s is pushing a tax increase for the district attorney’s office and the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office. He says the money is needed to “beef up” its resources in case President Obama wins the November election.
Ahhh…a tax increase? While they’ll never admit it, Democrats at that moment we’re saying to themselves “Maybe we should hear him out.”
Sometimes I just wish I could go into a coma until November 7th.
The Republican Primary for Nevada State Senate District 9 (home of the Popinjay) has taken a sexy turn and caught the attention of the British Press.
The Republican race for a vacant Nevada Senate seat has turned into an all out war after a website appeared online portraying one candidate as a hard-drinking party girl.
The site shows pictures of Mari St. Martin drinking, dancing and playing beer pong and dismisses her as immature, inexperienced and unqualified.
There’s a history of bad blood between the two republican – Mr Jones has filed a slander lawsuit against Mrs St. Martin after she claimed online that he convinced a mentally disabled man to pay $30,000 for an ostrich egg business.
Yeesh. Bill Raggio is rolling over in his grave faster than he rolled over for Harry Reid. Anyway, wish me luck when I head to the ballot box!
RightScoop has the story on the city council of an Arkansas town that wants to pass an ordinance that makes it illegal to form a group to discuss city business without first getting council approval.
It shows that while we need to clean house in Washington, we also need to clean house on our front stoop. Every year you hear of stories where the local police or bureaucrats shut down a kid’s lemonade stand or remove a neighborhood basketball hoop that’s too close to the street or what have you. Most of us don’t think about these local politicians unless we’re really involved in the community, and I’m no different, I admit. I do my own thing, I keep to myself, run in the circles I run in, but I couldn’t tell you what happened at the last County Commission meeting. Maybe I should, before they take my lemonade stand…and my First Amendment.
From Victor Davis Hanson (via Ed Driscoll):
“I suppose when my plumber starts lecturing me about the secular nature of the Muslim Brotherhood, I should assume he did not find the leak under the house.”
Looks like I may have to make a 2012 endorsement a little early: (Hat tip: JWF)
The rent won’t be Too Damn High at the White House.
Jimmy McMillan, the quirky character who stole the spotlight during New York’s 2010 governor’s race, is now setting his sights on a higher office: the presidency.
And the cherry on the sundae…
The lion-maned McMillan — who’s given to lengthy diatribes — says he’s registering as a Republican to avoid a Democratic primary.
McMillan, a self-proclaimed “karate master,” says he’s not worried about taking on the likes of Obama, or Republicans Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.
“I can sit here and say how to control the country in 30 seconds, and they can’t say it in 30 years,” he said.
“Not one of them can sit on a stage and address the issues that concern the American public. Not one of them. The president has not done it.”
“I love you, Mitt Romney. I love all of you guys. Y’all can come and bring me some water,” McMillan added.
9:45pm – And boom goes the dynamite. GOP officially wins House. Won’t win Senate, but tactically, that might be good. Next two years are gonna be crucial.
9:28pm – Well, we gave it a shot, but the Harry Reid machine (including Harrah’s and MGM) was just too much. You ran a good race, Sharron.
8:03pm – State of California commits suicide. I’m going to tell you this right now. When Jerry Brown goes to D.C. in a few years looking for a bailout, I’ll be on my representatives day and night to make sure they do NOT give it to them.
7:50pm – Now things are starting to fall into place. Nikki Haley wins in SC. Phil “I don’t care about the Constitution” Hare (winner of the John Wayne Gacy look-a-like contest) loses in Illinois and former NFL star John Runyan wins in NJ.
7:41pm – FEINGOLD LOSES!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE LIFE!!!
7:02pm – GOP picks up Govs in Penn and Iowa which is huge for 2012.
7:00pm – As I said on Twitter, the GOP won’t get the Senate, but they gain quality people. Rubio and Portman replace RINOs.
About the Senate, saw the guys on Fox arguing over why GOP winning big in House but not as much in Senate. Rove points out that the pickups they get will still be huge historically. But let’s face it, the GOP is still in a civil war and to win Senate seats nationwide, you have to be united from top to bottom. The elites and Tea Partiers are still going at it…tonight being a huge battle.
6:11pm – I haven’t posted much…mostly been watching Twitter. You can find results on sites better than mine. Sorry to see some of the Senate losses, but they were long-shots. All the networks are projecting the House is the GOP’s. Won’t win the Senate, but we have to look at it from more than numbers. We’re getting some quality people, led by Rubio and Paul. Now, I’m pretty much invested in Sharron Angle’s race which I’m afraid is going to turn into Coleman-Franken. Stay tuned on that.
5:04pm – No surprises at this point. Rubio wins which is worth more than just that Senate seat. He has the stuff to be a major force for years to come.
Love this story, via Ace. You almost have to admire the pure reckless abandon of this man. I shudder to look, yet I cannot turn away.
It’s like the Washington establishment wants the lashing they’re going to get in November.
A Daily Caller exclusive:
This Delaware Senate race has led to a lot of debate and hurt feelings in the punditry. Allahpundit, Dan Riehl, Mark Levin, Ace, Patterico and many others have been mixing it up over what are (or were) the right moves in this and other primaries. This inevitably has led to arguments over purity of the party and the role of the moderates, and of course the moderates are crying they’re an “endangered species” and there are fears the party will strive for “purity” so much the GOP will lose elections that could easily be won with people like Mike Castle.
Now is the time to take a deep breath and remember that the political mood at any given point in history is fleeting. Remember how conservatives thought in 1994 that they’d finally won the political wars once and for all? Remember just two short years ago these same conservatives thought socialism was unstoppable?
Of course you do.
