Allen West-- Rising Star for Congress

WOW. This man has it ALL: the gift of public speaking, the conservative message, passion, and even the race card going for him. Watch his poltical rise. I predict he will win his congressional seat in Florida handily. Then look for bigger things in 2012 and beyond. Here's his website. www.allenwestforcongrees/

My Political Passion on Gitmo, "Jihad Joe" and Healthcare by Susan in Glendale

Here's my first ever audio blog. I'm calling it "Political Passion with Susan in Glendale."

In this Vol. 1 No. 1, hear my thoughts about the Gitmo transfer to NYC, a prediction about "Jihad Joe" (Maj. Nidal Hasan) and what to do about Obamacare.

After 15 minutes and you'll need a cigarette.

Dems plan to hurt Palin

Got this email from Mitch Stewart. Apparently when I used the Dems' website to send a letter to newspapers I went into an email list so am now getting unsolicited strategy. Here's the uneditted contents:

"Susan --

Right now, Sarah Palin is on a highly publicized, nationwide book tour, attacking President Obama and his plan for health reform at every turn.

It's dangerous. Remember, this is the person who coined the term 'Death Panels' -- and opened the flood gates for months of false attacks by special interests and partisan extremists.

Whatever lie comes next will be widely covered by the media, then constantly echoed by right-wing attack groups and others who are trying to defeat reform.

As we approach the final sprint on health reform, we can't afford more deception and delay. We need to be ready for anything -- and have the resources to respond with ads, events, and calls to Congress when the attacks come.

So we're setting a big goal: $500,000 in the next week to help push back against Sarah Palin and her allies. Please chip in $5 or more to help reach our goal." [Mitch Stewart]

Here's the return email link.

Reminder: Sarah Palin is a former govenor, not currently running for anything as far as I know. SHE'S AN INDIVIDUAL CITIZEN and the Dems are planning an all out media assault because she's "dangerous." If you've already bought her book, then may I suggest you send $5 or more to a conservative organization, such as Heritage Foundation , or member of the House or Senate.

Professor Nidal Hasan -- the 21st Century Bill Ayers

Professor William Ayers lives a quiet life of academic prestige. But 40 years ago, young Bill Ayers fully embraced the anti-war movement, condemned its ethnocentric assault on the yellow man, and acted on his passion. His Weather Underground bombed the New York City Police Department, the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol Building to protest the Vietnam War.

A generation later, Dr. Nidal Hasan also fully embraced an anti-war movement, also condemned its ethnocentric assault on the brown man and the Muslim man, and also acted on his passion. He opened fire at a military base in Texas.

One can only wonder if, say, two or three decades from now, Professor Hasan will be endowed the William Ayers' Chair of Cultural Evolution at the same state university where Ayers now enjoys honored tenure.

And why not? Leftwing America embraces Bill Ayers. A somewhat younger Barack Obama embraced Ayers in the 1990s, moving into his Chicago neighborhood, socializing with him, getting appointed to the same Board of the politically charged Woods Fund - along with friend Rashid Khalidi, radical Muslim and former Arafat spokesman (yes, that Arafat, the now-deceased leader of the PLO terrorist organization).

Leftwing America rewarded Bill Ayers with a tenured professorship. Why shouldn't the Left now embrace Nidal Hasan? How was his crime different from the Weather Underground or Bill Ayers? If anything, Hasan can claim a more personal affront than Ayers, as Hasan, an Arab Muslim, suffered the indignity of serving in the same military that waged its unprovoked war-based-on-lies against fellow Arabs and Islam.

But as in the Vietnam era, you will not immediately hear any vocalized "attaboys" from the Left. They will, as they did with Ayers, solemnly wag their fingers and demand "justice" (though, to the Left, their vision of justice was likely served with Bill Ayers.) So for now, we are lectured about not jumping to conclusions, with commentaries on how the emotional stress of Bush's War has caused untold stress on many a good man. The stage is set. In 2040, Professor Hasan's leftist biographers will solemnly wag their fingers at those who condemn Hasan. They will observe how Hasan acted out, perhaps inappropriately, but only in response to the bloody pogrom waged against his Arab and Muslim brothers. No, we never would condone his specific act of violence, but we must not be judgmental and allow emotion to cloud an appreciation of why he felt the need to act so boldly.

But that is the rhetoric of 2040. Today, we hear the obligatory "tsk tsks" from the Left, though give it time. It took decades, but they feel safe in letting their guard down when speaking of Ayers. The leftist FactCheck.Org cautions against describing Ayers' bombings as "terrorism" (sound familiar in the current stories about Hasan?) And as Obama lectured us during the campaign, Ayers may have "engaged in some despicable acts 40 years ago", but ....

An FB friend of mine told me the Democrats have a website up encouraging their loyalists to write letters into local newspapers praising the Obama Health cre bill. (BTW, Michael Steele -- where ARE you and the RNC already, taking notes I hope?) The website even supplies a ready-made talking points letter for the less creative.

I used their website to submit the following letter to the editors of local papers.
I entitled my submission "Obaminable Healthcare." Here's what I said.

"November 7th, 2009 is a date that will live in infamy. On that date the United State House of Reresentatives indeed made history: It passed the biggest socialist grab for power this country has yet seen.

H.R. 3962 the "Affordable Health Care for America Act" forces people to pay thousands in fines and taxes for failure to comply with government mandated insurance. Sec. 412 (p. 272) of the bill says that employers must provide a "qualified plan" for their employees and pay 72.5% of the cost, and a smaller share of family coverage, or incur an 8% payroll TAX!! The Congressional Budget Office estimates that an individual earning $44,000 before taxes who purchases his own insurance will have to pay a $5,300 premium and an estimated $2,000 in out-of-pocket expenses, for a total of $7,300 a year, which is 17% of his pre-tax income. A family earning $102,100 a year before taxes will have to pay a $15,000 premium plus an estimated $5,300 out-of-pocket, for a $20,300 total, or 20% of its pre-tax income. People who do not comply will FACE PRISON -- all for choosing a health care plan that does not comply with what the feds think is proper!!

This is government control over people's choices. It is governmental take over of people's businesses and the freedom to choose how to spend their own money. It is marxism plain and simple , taking our money and dictating to us how we are to run our lives. It is an assault on individualism and capitalism -- the two driving forces behind this great nation.

America, it is time to STAND UP and defy this governmental threat to your liberty. If this bill becomes law, our country will be chained financially and crippled for decades. Call your Senators and tell them in no uncertain terms that this bill is wrong for America. Do it today while you still have the freedom to act.

Susan in Glendale" (So, you think it'll get published? LOL)

The Conservative Take Over has Begun

I want to go on record BEFORE the returns of the three key elections today (Virginia, New Jersey and NY-23).

I am a proud part of what the state run left wing media is already calling the "Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck" wing of the Republican party -- as though that's a bad thing!! The new conservative is taking over the Grand Old Party from within. I am symbolic of that new conservative voter, people who have been disenfranchised by their own party's abdication of values.

My message to RNC: run conservative candidates and ride that wave to victory or run "moderates" and continue losing election after election. Frankly, you have nothing to lose.

You have my heart and all I can muster to turn out the vote or whatever else we need to win PROVIDED the GOP runs conservative PRO LIFE candidates. No RINOs. No wishy washy republicans who are pro-choice but claim to be "socially conservative" like our present govenor in California. Such candidates ultimately vote democrat and undermine republican power and erode the voters' faith in the GOP. There is no point in replacing liberal Democrat with moderate "republicans." They are in reality the same thing.

If you folks in the RNC endorse true conservatives, then you have my help and everything I can give you. If you endorse a "moderate" republican, I cannot help you.

If you cannot FIND a conservative candidate and want one for an office, call me.
