In the far reaches of upstate New York, two Republicans are seeking the 21st congressional district seat of Democrat Bill Owens, who is retiring according to a January report from the Daily Kos. Owens is serving his third term in Congress after originally being elected in 2008. Joe Gilbert, a retired army veteran and Tea Party conservative, will face off against Elise Stefanik, a businesswoman
Joe Gilbert was born in Ogdensburg, N.Y. in 1966 and joined the army reserves at 18 while he was still in high school. After an abortive attempt at Potsdam State University, he joined the active duty army. In 1987, he began his military career in Germany guarding the strategic Fulda Gap opposite a Cold War Soviet army. During this time, Gilbert says he “caught glimpses of the misery and poverty that resulted from an all-powerful government on the other side.” At the same time, Gilbert began studying college courses. He earned degrees from the University of Phoenix and the University of Maryland and was selected to attend Officer Candidate School. Gilbert specialized in military intelligence and after 9/11 served three tours in Iraq.
“He gave the president exactly what he wanted, which is exactly what the Republican Party said we did not want.” – Rep. Tim Huelskamp R-Kansas
Some traitors are obvious…the names Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Hillary Clinton just roll off the tongue…but sadly some traitors cause one to sigh in total disillusionment…and Speaker of the House John Boehner is one such man…or is he. Continue reading →
To have the inner strength to stand by one’s convictions and act in accordance with those beliefs, especially in spite of criticism…that’s the definition of courage. And those with courage act in defiance of any inner fear of reprisal they might have for they put others before themselves.
I think our Founder’s expected our leaders to be men of courage, especially when attending to ‘the people’s business.’ How disappointed they would be if they saw the Republicans of today cowering in fear before the man, who on Tuesday night, declared himself to be America’s first king…NO…dictator is more like it…for when Barack HUSSEIN Obama basically rendered Congress politically impotent by saying he will bypass them and do what he wants to do…he NOT only trampled on the Constitution, he totally rendered it null and void in his mind.

ObamaCare, the NSA, Benghazi…it does get tiring hearing about them after awhile I know, but these issues must remain in the forefront as we head into the mid-term elections, for these issues are just the things that might turn Congress around…painting it RED in both Houses.
These issues…scandals some call them…MUST be talked about every chance we get because they go to the very core of what’s wrong with the Obama administration and they all have one thing in common…LIES. But sadly, in the case of Benghazi four Americans who did NOT have to die…did die…and one of them, Ambassador Christopher Stevens…died from unspeakable torture all because of Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s LIES.

Welfare state…a system in which the government undertakes the chief responsibility for providing for the social and economic security of its population, usually through unemployment insurance, old-age pensions, health care, and other social-security measures
It’s very important that ‘We the People’ NOT let ObamaCare fade from our public consciousness, so to that affect I give you ObamaCare by the numbers…numbers Obama himself does NOT want you to see…starting with his claim that 38 million more Americans will be insured when ObamaCare is in full operational mode. But this is NOT quite true as 38 million people will NOT be paying for health insurance…most will be added to the Medicaid rolls…welfare medicine in a welfare state personified.
So Obama’s recently touted good news that about 1.6 million Americans have enrolled in ObamaCare since October 1st is anything but good news, for the bad news is that 1.46 million out of those 1.6 million have actually signed up for Medicaid NOT for the private pay policies offered on the exchanges.

It only took three-percent of the population to win independence from Great Britiain. Today our freedom is in jeopardy again, and a recent poll shows that nearly ten times that percentage of the population believes an armed revolution may be necessary to preserve liberty.
According to a poll conducted April 22-28, 2013 by Fairleigh Dickinson University, nearly one-third of Americans believe that another armed revolt could become necessary within the next few years to preserve liberty and protect individual rights.
When the House passed legislation to defund ObamaCare but would keep the government running through mid-December, the Senate, led by Senate Majority Leader, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) stated that they would not budge on Obamacare and the legislation was defeated.
On Monday, Dr. Harold Pease, an expert on the United States Constitution, stated that the authority in dealing with Obamacare funding belongs to the U.S. House, not the U.S. Senate and that the House is doing this all wrong.
The democrats were not able to push through massive gun control laws, so now they are trying to do the job with new taxes. And we’re not talking little tax increases. We are talking mucho grande tax increases.
The American Future Fund, a conservative organization became the latest victim of the IRS scandal that targeted conservative organizations for their political views when two Republican congressmen on Thursday began questioning contacts between the Internal Revenue Service and Federal Election Commission when emails between the two show the tax agency illegally leaked confidential information about the group.
During Thursday’s edition of “Special Report with Bret Baier,” FOX News Chief Congressional Correspondent Mike Emanuel spotlighted the growing scandal surrounding the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Lois Lerner, and the emerging evidence of collusion between the IRS and the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in targeting the American Future Fund.
