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!

Will The Real Walt Minnick Stand Up! (video)

with one comment

By Bill Hurst, Voters In Idaho’s 1st Congressional District are Asking: Who and What is Walt Minnick?

Minnick, while posing as a conservative, with his campaign staff have set about to misrepresent his ideology to those he is supposed to represent. His “merry” band of liberals from Idaho and the DNC portray him as a “conservative maverick” in the Democrat Party.  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 90% to 100% conservative.

Minnick is ultra-liberal when voting on social issues. Minnick voted to keep government-funded abortion provision in ObamaCare, received $5,000 in lobbying funds from Planned Parenthood in 2008 and Representative Minnick supported the interests of NARAL Pro-Choice America 100 percent in 2009 Video Minnick & Abortion.  Minnick has voted for legislation that has added billions of dollars to the national debt and more government regulations.

Minnick Posing As A Conservative:Votes For The Liberals

If you have conservative values; how can you trust Walt Minnick? If you stand for the truth; how can you trust Minnick? Minnick has not done or said anything that can be classified as creditable or believable in his campaign.  Even the Idaho Democrats can’t figure him out! This would give him a trust factor of zero with the voters of  Idaho’s 1st Congressional District. Among the various human factors are relied upon making a decision in an uncertain environment, risk and trust are surely crucial ones. In summing these together; are you willing to risk your vote and future on someone whose trust factor is in a questionable state?

Minnick Misleading: Backed Up By Liberals Responding

Politicalgame:

The Walt Minnick You Don’t Know

In the glossy version, Walt worked in the Nixon White House on drug policy and he did—with a budget that, under his watch, ballooned to over 13 times what it was when he began. But even though he requested and received a letter from the Watergate Special Prosecutor confirming he was never a target of the investigation, multiple sources place Minnick, at least temporarily, in the Special Investigations Unit. Known as the “Plumbers,” this brainchild of Nixon was tasked with preventing leaks of classified information and carrying out covert operations against his political enemies. Led by Minnick’s boss, Egil Krogh, who would eventually plead guilty and spend time in prison, the Plumbers were the nucleus of illegal activity that would ultimately lead to the downfall of the administration.
In the postcard version, Walt “resigned in protest” after the Saturday Night Massacre (when Nixon fired Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox). It’s not clear when Minnick actually decided to resign, let alone whether he “resigned in protest,” but if he was protesting, it wasn’t very loudly. He stuck around for at least three months after that October Saturday of 1973. The truth doesn’t fit as nicely on an airbrushed postcard but to understand Walt Minnick’s grainy past you have to start at the beginning.

Club for Truth accused Minnick of being soft on illegal immigration, his spokesman responded:

“Walt’s position on immigration has been consistent from the beginning, and it’s that we need to secure the borders, send troops to the borders if necessary. Everyone who’s failed a background check needs to be deported immediately, the remainder needs to pay a fine and move to the back of the line for legal immigration”

This position mirrors President Obama’s current stance that if you are here illegally, you don’t need to be deported as long as you pass a background check and pay a fine. After doing this, you will receive one form of amnesty or another. This is the progressive stance on illegal immigration.

Minnick has compared the border fence being built along the Southern Border to the Berlin Wall. He also called for a path to normalization for illegal immigrants which is basically amnesty.

Minnick Wrong On His Own Voting Record! (video)

From: The Mountain Goat Reporter, The Walt Minnick You Don’t Know:

Like anyone would, there are things in Walt Minnick’s past that he frequently highlights, things he would rather forget and things he just doesn’t talk about. Depending on the audience, those things vary. However, some of those things he highlights have been distorted or are downright false and most of what you think you know about Walt Minnick, you don’t. Somewhere beneath Walt’s glossy, airbrushed, postcard version of the past is the grainy, less glamorous, washed-out truth.

In the airbrushed version, Walt spent two years in the Army and even, as his campaign Facebook page reads, “serving his country in Vietnam.” This assertion is repeated in other biographies, including the executive search site “Boardroom Insiders” and The Committee for a Liveable Future (LivPAC), the political action committee founded by Congressman Earl Blumenaur (D-OR). Actually a young Walter Minnick was desperately looking for a way to avoid the draft, and did so successfully. While scores of men his age, most with less means, spent their tours of duty in the jungles of Southeast Asia, Walt spent his time as an analyst in the Pentagon, with at least the last six months of his two-year obligation spent in the White House.

Raul Labrador Has A Clear & Precise Stance On Immigration (video)

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.

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)

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.
