Minnick Won’t Say!…The Liberal Democrat’s Election Strategy?

Idaho's Liberal Congressman Minnick, Posing As A Conservative

Looking deep into Idaho’s Liberal Congressman’s voting record and his previous campaigns against Crapo and Sali we see his liberalness in his words and actions, of the not so distant past. Minnick likes to play conservative when he comes to Idaho or has his campaign put this false mantra out to the Idaho voters.  It is ‘well Walt’s the blue dog Democrat from Idaho’. The “blue dog” mantra is a gimmick to help the liberals that are in trouble with their conservative constituents.  This is a well orchestrated move by the DNC  to keep their liberal Democrat majority.  This gimmick for Minnick is not going to work, when you look behind Walt Minnick you see all his liberal friends. The fact is he aligns himself to the liberal rank and file with Pelosi topping the buddy list.

Here is some of the latest Minnick’s gimmicks… won’t say, in other words, don’t ask him then he doesn’t have to tell you. This is what Boise Weekly reported:

We reported that when we asked (twice) Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo why he was supporting Raul Labrador over Walt Minnick, he didn’t even mention the Democratic incumbent by name, but did repeatedly refer to Minnick’s 2009 vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. Minnick campaign spokesman John Foster wasted no time to remind us that his boss “hasn’t yet made any commitment in who he would or would not support for speaker next year.” Minnick opposed the speaker on three headline-grabbing bills: cap-and-trade, health-care reform and stimulus spending.

Well Mr. Foster this is your “bosses” own words, “We should try to sort out over the next several Congresses the good from the bad and make this the bill that we should have passed in the first place” (see video and related comments). Minnick has voted for funding of bills that he earlier voted against. Well here is a “headline-grabbing bill” how about the The Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010 (video) much of the legislation Minnick voted for has stimulus money built into the “package” like several billion for pork barrel to appease extreme liberal congressional groups.

Yes, and for good reason Senator Crapo would bring up Minnick’s vote for Pelosi because the support is etched is stone. Consider this, Minnick had a fundraiser at speaker Pelosi’s home ( mansion) an event he raised a lot of money. If you don’t think there’s no quid pro quo deal there then, I have a bridge in San Fransisco  I would like to sell you.

Minnick voted for Pelosi and said he supports her. The Idaho so called blue dog has already made his call!

Protected Illegal Alien Status…How? Through Last-Ditch Efforts of a Liberal Congress (Video)

leave a comment »

By Bill Hurst,

This liberal-socialist administration is on the move. In my last article Protected..Non-Citizen Status I mentioned that the current administration used the liberal seated justices to stop States Rights, in dealing with Arizona’s new immigration law. It goes a bit further than just using the liberal judicial branch of the government to wield the ugly “Angle of Death” upon conservatives and the citizens of a sovereign state. The point being that laws were justly legislated and supported by the citizenry of that state then the angel of death swooped in.  Duly authorized and legal legislation is being challenged by the federal government, not congress, but the executive branch of the government using its influence with the courts.

Where is this leading to? It will lead to a unilateral centralized power for the President giving him unbridled enforcement power.  The President can freely use the U.S. Attorney General and the Judicial Branch to launch “investigations”, injunctions, and rulings.  These actions will tie up states, business, and private individuals in federal court for years. These maneuvers will drain resources of the conservative coalition to the point of ineffectiveness.   This administration will effectively gain a centralized ruling branch dictating their social agenda on U.S citizens by making states succumb to total Statism by the Presidency. States will become mere distributive arms of social programs dictated by the Presidency.

You are thinking, what about the congress? Congress will eventually be neutered. Power is being slowly stripped from the legislative branch. Those duly elected by the people to represent the body of voting continuance, Congressmen representing the desires of the constituency and their collective interest to the republic. Point in fact the Democrats, with the urging of the President, tried to use “self-executing rule” or a “deem and pass” to wrangle a multi-billion dollar socialized health care bill through without the vote of the full House of Representatives.

The liberal-socialistic federal courts will effectively make conservative legislation “law non grata.” The federal courts will halt tax cuts, spending cuts on social programs etc. making these decisions based on liberal philosophical jargon and not on constitutional law.  The liberal president with his socialistic plans, has the Veto stamp which will play havoc on a conservative congress that can not muster a 2/3 majority.  These processes will undoubtedly make  a conservative congress ineffective.

Read what the Republicans have to say about passing massive liberal tax and spend bills:

Democrats Keep Door Open to Dangerous Lame Duck Session

Washington, Jul 29 – Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) issued the following statement after offering a resolution on the floor of the House of Representatives calling on Congress not to hold a lame duck session after Election Day for the purpose of passing hugely unpopular legislation like a national energy tax, enormous deficit spending bills, and the kickback to Big Labor known as “Card Check.”

“Americans are sick and tired of their elected leaders making backroom deals to ram through unpopular, 2000-page bills that no one has read,” said Chairman Price.  “They are sick of out-of-touch politicians, and they are tired of being ignored.  A number of Democrats, including members of their leadership, have recently expressed a desire to ignore the public will and use a lame duck session to pass liberal legislation Americans do not want.  Today I gave my Democrat colleagues an opportunity to show they are finally ready to listen to the American people.

“Our system of government rests upon the consent of the governed, but it is quite clear that Democrats no longer have Americans’ consent.  The public’s trust in this Congress has been repeatedly broken.  Voting for a national energy tax and other items on the liberal wish list in a lame duck session would shatter it beyond repair.  Republicans are fully prepared to do what is necessary to restore Americans’ trust in their elected representatives.  We know it will be a long road, but it is one well worth traveling.”

Listen to my friend Lou Dobbs, as he talks about how a “Lame Duck” session likely to be used to grant amnesty through the proverbial back door of this liberal congress: (yes he is in there click the start button)

The Financial Stability Act:Huge Government Take Over! (Video)

with 3 comments

—By Bill Hurst, The liberal Democrat, posing as a conservative, has his people putting the spin on the truth.  Just a recap of “The Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010”

Minnick, Voted for this horrendous government take over of the financial markets.

With his “aye” on H.R. 4173, his liberal-socialistic actions should be exposed. This will prove to Idaho First Congressional District voters as proof positive, that Minnick is not fiscally conservative. Idaho’s Congressman  was elected to the House of Representatives under the “Minnick Myth” as a fiscal Conservative, while all along Minnick has a liberal belief system on all other issues. During his first term in the House of Representatives, Minnick has voted as a fiscal Conservative on some economic related legislation, however, he supported this legislation that can only be described alone as socialistic controlling and destructive to our free enterprise system.

“Benjamin Franklin In His Own Words”. In a letter to an English bureaucrat in 1773, he states that “while it is true that parliament has the right to make laws for the Colonies, it is also true that they have the right not to make laws.”

Today we have plenty of laws and bureaucracies with too many non-productive bureaucrats. It is time that congress ended money wasting programs before they duplicate them with more money wasting programs. If the people working in these programs are actually talented, they should have no problem finding work in the private sector.

Minnick should be asked, “How does a bill that adds over $15 Billion to the deficit benefit anyone?” On top of that it provides for a 6 billion dollar pork barrel to appease extreme liberal congressional groups. The bill he supports does not make him a fiscal conservative, he has shown his true colors.→   (see related article) There is something to be said about consumer protection and legitimate disclosure, but this “Massive” mesh of regulation assures that no reasonable citizen is going to be able to understand the mortgage process.  The lack of disclosure in “Plain English” will lead to abuse, so what is being resolved? It is interesting that legislative hearings only invite the captains of industry, never the guy who is in direct contact with consumers every day. I am sure that they think financial professionals are as stupid as the consumers they endeavor to protect. When will it end?

Protected…Non-Citizen Status? How does that work? (Video)

Posted: By Bill Hurst, “The Troublesome Conservative”

Or:

Protected…Illegal Alien  Status? What is legal about illegal?

Rush makes some good points about the liberals pushing their agenda. When this liberal administration doesn’t  like something  they lean on the US Attorney General to file injunctions so a  liberal appointed judge can become the “Angel of Death” to states rights. Rush’s video points out a great example of the federal government’s wrongful act of intervention of States Rights.

Protected…Illegal Alien Status?

Idahoans “Have Had Enough” Liberal Democrats Are Out, Conservatives Are IN!

with one comment

By Bill Hurst, Liberal Minnick, posing as a conservative is on the Run..

Raul Labrador, Has strong moral and ethical convictions and his word is his bond. He has proven he will stand against the Health Care Law voted in by Pelosi, and Reid with Obama at the forefront pushing for this bill, that has led this country down the path of socialism. Labrador’s opponent says he voted against the Health Care Bill. Yet, he  voted for funding and other amendments related to “The Bill.” Read the following link and you will also know how the Liberal Democrat feels about government health care: Liberal Minnick will not help his fellow Idahoans pass an amendment to repeal the Health Care Law.

Idaho’s liberal Democrat did vote for massive legislation that will create statism this country has never seen before, the Wall Street-Finance Reform Bill. Read the link to the article on Idaho’s liberal Congressman’s part in the passage of this ‘Horrid” bill Liberal Minnick has proven he is not a fiscal conservative Deomocrat…Fact is, he will vote more like a liberal Democrat as time goes by.

Congressman Minnick, Idaho’s Liberal, posing as a  conservative, has sealed his defeat in the Congressional race against Raul Labrador. He is the first elected Democrat to the United States House of Representatives from Idaho in decades. However, Idahoans “Have Had Enough”, of the mess back in Washington D.C.  with the liberal Democrats in charge.  Many Americans are truly discouraged, disappointed and aggravated with  Obama’s presidency and the lack of leadership. Polls now show that 61% are going to vote for the conservative Republican, to help reduce Obama’s  influence on setting policy and driving a Statism-Socialistic agenda. A small group; 16% that are undecided as how they will vote.   Leaving  the undying liberals wanting all the entitlements and subsidies  they can get their hands on, hoping Obama will keep on giving.  Sadly to say that there is a generation of “Welfare State” minded folks, getting the help of the king of socialism, Obama will help them fulfill their dreams, of endless welfare checks and subsidies for generations to come.

LABRADOR CAMPAIGN RELEASES POLLING RESULTS

Shows Minnick Has Modest Lead – But Facing Serious Re-Election Problems

(Eagle, Idaho)  The Labrador for Idaho Campaign made public an internal poll done this week, showing that incumbent Democrat faces a difficult, uphill climb to re-election.

In a head-to-head match-up, Democrat Walt Minnick is preferred by just 37% of voters in Idaho’s 1st CD, with 27% choosing Republican Raul Labrador.  26% were undecided.

Pollster Bob Moore, a highly experienced Republican pollster based in Portland, found that, “Labrador is trailing because he is less well-known than Walt Minnick”.  Moore went on to note that Minnick’s advantage is limited to just those voters who have not yet heard of Labrador.  Even more significant is the fact that only 38% of voters believe Democrat Minnick deserves re-election, while 40% want someone else.

One of the more encouraging pieces of data revealed by the poll is that Labrador is actually leading, 41% – 36%, among voters who are familiar with him.

“I have to say that I am very heartened by this polling data,” Labrador said in a prepared statement.  “Obviously, I would rather be ahead – but I am satisfied that the polling shows Idaho is ready to make a change, that this race is more than winnable.  I am excited by the opportunity of earning the votes of those undecided today.”

The analysis by Moore Information found that Idaho voters are very unhappy with the direction of the country.  In fact, 61% of all voters interviewed said they want to vote for a Republican candidate “who will provide a check and balance on President Obama and the Congressional Democrats”.

The survey was conducted July 12-13 among a representative sample of 300 voters in Idaho’s 1st CD.  The potential sampling error is 6% +/-, at the 95% confidence interval.
