Minnick’s Campaign Desperate…Lashing Out In Vain! (Video)

with 3 comments

By Bill Hurst,  Minnick‘s campaign still strikes out with falsehoods, lies, attempts at character assassination,  misrepresentations and plain old childlike behavior! Then Minnick runs off and hides so he will not have to stand tall for his actions. Do we want this malcontent as our congressman?  Walt, Your attack dog Johnny Foster is doing a poor job! Your defeat will be at his feet and his feet alone!

Here is the latest on the Lopez case and Minnick’s attack ad:

From Raul Labrador’s Campaign:

October 28, Boise, ID – Walt Minnick’s flailing re-election campaign reached new lows in desperation today with an ad so wildly false and misleading the Labrador campaign has called for it to be taken down immediately.

Walt Minnick is asserting in his latest smear ad that Raul Labrador conspired to allow a criminal to flee the country so he wouldn’t have to face charges filed against him.

The real facts of the case are Raul Labrador represented a client named Carlos Lopez in 2001.  Carlos Lopez was arrested and subsequently charged with Misprison of Felony.  Upon his arrest it was determined by the INS that Carlos Lopez was in this country illegally.  Because of this, the INS placed an “Immigration Detainer” on him pending trial, which means that if he were released while awaiting trial the INS steps in and books them under their jurisdiction.

Former U.S. Attorney for Idaho Tom Moss:

I am speaking in my personal capacity and not on behalf of the US Attorney’s office or the Department of Justice.  My personal opinion after a review of the matter is that Mr. Labrador did nothing illegal or unethical. He was simply representing his client within the law and according to court procedures as allowed at that time, as I would expect any competent attorney to do. In my personal opinion the television ad is unfair in that it distorts the facts in a prejudicial manner.”

STATEMENT FROM J. KENT NYGAARD
INS Special Agent (Retired):

From 1987 until my retirement in 2005, I was an INS Special Agent assigned to the organized crime Drug Task Force. I was one of the case agents in a federal prosecution of approximately 26 defendants where Carlos Lopez was charged. He was very low level defendant who was charged as being present during the delivery of money from a prior drug deal.

 
Upon his arrest, I determined that he was from Mexico and in the country illegally. An INS detainer was placed with the U. S. Marshal’s Service. In a subsequent detention hearing, the U.S. Magistrate released Lopez on certain condition. The INS took custody of Lopez and afforded him due process as required by law. He was sent to a detention center where he was afforded a deportation hearing and I presume was deported.

 
Mr. Labrador defended his client in this matter as he was required to do under his oath and as expected by the prosecution. His actions in this case were in accordance with proper handling of a criminal case by a defense attorney.

 
Mr. Minnick’s characterizations of the events of this case are completely dishonest and misleading. His ad is intentionally deceiving and is simply character assassination.

 

From the IdahoReporter.com:

Minnick ad targets Labrador’s work helping an illegal immigrant

The latest television commercial from Congressman Walt Minnick follows a familiar theme in his campaign: criticizing Republican state Rep. Raul Labrador’s past work as an immigration attorney. The latest ad focuses on one specific case, accusing Labrador of helping an illegal immigrant facing drug charges escape prosecution.

Minnick: Wanted Political Opportunist! Mike Johnson Gets Job!

with 5 comments

By Bill Hurst, Walt Minnick, posing as a conservative, needed to give some credibility to his felonious attack ads against Raul Labrador. The attack ads falsely accuse Labrador as favoring illegal immigration and profiting from illegal activity. So Minnick recruits political opportunist Mike Johnson. Johnson has ridden the coat tails of the Idaho Republican party for years.

Johnson’s first civil servant job was as a deputy coroner in the early 70’s for Ada County. Then he was a “part-time” boat cop for Ada County. He had some connections up in the little sleepy area of Boise County and secured a place as a “full-time” Deputy Sheriff in the mid 1970’s. This was for a very brief time.

Back to Ada County where in 1978 he was able to run unopposed as that counties elected Coroner; this position was also secured by his friends in the Republican Party.  In 1984 Mike had an opportunity to run unopposed as an Ada County Commissioner. When Johnson was up for re-election this time he drew an opponent and lost his bid for commissioner.

This will be a good place to regress a little and tell you why Mike was able to hop around and never really had to work through the ranks. Mr. Johnson has always tried to situate himself, not for a job, but for a “position.”   Mike has relatives and friends in high places, people including  high-ranking state and federal government officials to judges.

Johnson then manipulated his way into an appointment by President George H.W. Bush as the U.S. Marshal for Idaho. His tenure with the Marshal’s Service was marred by his debacle of Ruby Ridge in Northern Idaho. See Mike really was not much of a peace officer as he had very little experience in law enforcement.

Former Canyon County Sheriff George Nourse stated,

Mike never did complete Idaho Post Academy nor did he ever have any advance law-enforcement training. Yes, Mike Johnson was always looking for a cushy job he never has had a real law-enforcement career!   Johnson working for the Marshal’s service had nothing to do with illegal immigration, no immigration enforcement, no transport of illegals.

Nourse expanded,

As a matter of fact most of the Marshal work that he was in charge of was serving Federal civil subpoenas.”

As Mike quietly slips out of the Marshal’s Service and into the top baggage cop at the Boise Airport.  This came even after objections from Chiefs of Police and Sheriffs around the State of Idaho. This was because Johnson was not a “certified” police officer. There was also scandal at the Boise Airport and Johnson slipped out unscathed.

Is this the best Minnick can scrape up is someone with a less than stellar law-enforcement career?  To me it speaks volumes of the type of campaign and congressman Walt Minnick really is. Again I say… Will The Real Walt Minnick Stand Up!:

Mike Johnson Political Gigolo!

By Bill Hurst, Misconceptions of some on Raul Labrador’s stance on immigration; this is an attempt to help you get clarification.

Some will say that  Raul Labrador, Congressional candidate for Idaho’s 1st district, because he is Hispanic and that he is an immigration attorney, he does not and will not have a strong stance on immigration and will not want to protect our most southern border. That is as ludicrous of a statement as; Bill Hurst is a Caucasian tax accountant and if he were to go to Washington D.C. as a tax reformer he would not want the U.S. Tax Code simplified. Simply put, this is ridicules thinking, Zig Zigler would call it “stinkinthinkin’”, and he would tell you to stop it!

Labrador is for strengthening  our immigration laws, enforcement and securing our boarders. As Mr. Labrador stated, on the Austin Hill show on KIDO 580am, he is for a “guest worker program” only if the program does not give a path to citizenship. Raul Labrador knows immigration yes, this will put him at a huge advantage with the other law makers, when it comes to immigration reform, which only makes clear sense to have an expert at the forefront of  changes in immigration laws. As it would be logical to have someone who is versed on the complexities of the tax code and the taxation process, to reform tax laws.

Please share this article with friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone else that may have a mistaken belief Raul Labrador does not have a stolid stance on immigration.

Raul’s statements on immigration:

News Release from Labrador Campaign:

LABRADOR BACKS OTTER’S DECISION TO SUPPORT ARIZONA’S ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION COURT BATTLE AGAINST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

I am in complete agreement with Gov. Otter’s decision.  It is a travesty the Obama administration is spending money fighting Arizona in court when it should be spending money fighting illegal immigration” says Raul Labrador

September 4, Boise. Republican congressional candidate Raul Labrador today signaled his support of Idaho Governor Butch Otter and Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden’s decision to file a ‘friend of the court’ brief with the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in support of Arizona’s laws intended to fight illegal immigration in that state. Idaho now joins 10 other states which have also filed briefs in support of Governor Jan Brewer and the Arizona Legislature.

In explaining his decision, Labrador said,

“I am in complete agreement with Gov. Otter and Attorney General Wasden’s decision. We have a growing problem of illegal immigration in this country that Congress and President Obama cannot continue to ignore. The solution to this problem is not filing suit against states that attempt to enforce existing federal laws regarding the identification and arrest of illegal immigrants and the solution is not amnesty.”

“When elected to Congress I will push for enhanced border security through barriers, technology and the deployment of troops. The solution to this problem from the incumbent Democrat, Walt Minnick is amnesty. The people of Idaho deserve leadership on this issue in Washington and when elected to Congress I will be a part of the solution and not part of the problem.”

Labrador concluded,

“It is a travesty the Obama administration is spending money fighting Arizona in court when it should be spending money to fight illegal immigration. It is just another example of how out of touch the president and the Democrat Congress are with the American people.”

Raul Labrador in his own words from his official web-page:

The Arizona law has forced the illegal immigration problem onto center stage.

First – let’s talk about the building national crisis. The Arizona state government took decisive action to protect its state and people from an onslaught of violence. It is also facing a crisis because its social service systems and institutions are being overwhelmed by the presence of some 500,000 illegal immigrants.

Of course Arizona had to act. Now we see demonstrations and cries of ‘racism’ and calls for boycotts against the state of Arizona. That is wrong.

The anger and criticism is misplaced. It should be directed at the federal government – which has played games with this major problem instead of finding solutions.

Labrador Is A True Conservative-Minnick Won’t Even Say He’s A Democrat!

leave a comment »

By Bill Hurst, Simply put, there is no such thing as a conservative or a “Blue Dog” Democrat, it is a myth.

Minnick, while posing as a conservative, with his buddies from Idaho’s mostly liberal press corps have done such a great  job of representing Minnick as a “conservative maverick” in the Democrat Party, one may wonder why the heck he is a Democrat. This is simply absurd given that Minnick scored a dismal 44% from the American Conservative Union, despite his much touted opposition to Obama’s big agenda items.  Any congressman from Idaho should score nothing less than 100% conservative.

Minnick paints himself as this; I will do what Idahoans want, type of guy, it is very obvious that is not the case as I have pointed out in many articles on this blog site. Minnick has a hidden agenda, which is to support the liberal mantra of the Democrat Party, if he is elected to a second term. Even though Minnick will never mention his party affiliation, we need to remind every one in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District, every day that he is a Pelosi puppy. The “Blue Dog” myth is going to vanish for those Democrats that tout this banner. Simply put, there is no such thing as a conservative Democrat in the 21st century. Minnick associates with the liberal crowd.

Idaho's Liberal Congressman Minnick, Posing As A Conservative

An important fallacy about these “conservative” Democrats that the spot-light needs to shine on, is that each one of them voted for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker. These so-called “Blue Dog” the most or “fictitious” conservative Democrats handed control of the committees to extremists like Henry Waxman, John Conyers, and Barney Frank.  By single handily granting Pelosi a governing majority, the Blue Dog Coalition grants the Democrats full control of the Rules Committee, which completely manipulates the legislative process for the leadership.  This effectively assures the passage of any legislation that is supported by Pelosi and her liberal buddies.  This is exactly how we got ObamaCare.

Let’s do a little comparison:

Raul Labrador will be a major player in immigration reform because of his background and experience with immigration laws. He is not for immigration amnesty

Minnick is for amnesty for aliens that are in the U.S. illegally.

Labrador will be part of the “new conservative” make-up of Congress this next term.

Minnick will support the liberal agenda that is continuing with Pelosi, Reid, and Obama.

Labrador understands economics and the principles of supply & demand, supply side theory.

Minnick knows how to spend taxpayer money and how to artificially stimulate the economy. He is also in favor of Price Controls.

Labrador wants strong national defense.

Minnick is for cutting the militaries budgets.

Labrador will vote for business friendly bills.

Minnick voted for the “The Financial Stability Act”.

Labrador leads the efforts to repeal ObamaCare.

Minnick dos not want to repeal ObamaCare.
