Caution Utah 3rd Congressional District: The Republican Platform is still worth voting for

The Republican Platform is worth voting for, and the voters deserve a candidate that not only says he believes in it, but has the record to prove it.  If you live in the 3rd Congressional District, you may have received your mail-in ballot already to select your first choice to replace Congressman Jason Chaffetz, who vacated it to take a position at Fox News.

Before you send that ballot in, I hope you will review this research and that it will be useful in helping you make a wise decision.  It is well-cited and as accurate as possible.

In spite of the frustrations toward the two major parties, they are still the two parties through which we can best influence the outcome.  If you have been disappointed that some candidates that call themselves Republican have not been true to their promises after elected, you deserve a candidate that can be trusted.

Many who know Chris Herrod know he is that trusted candidate.  They have watched him while serving in the Republican Party’s highest deliberative body, standing fearlessly against the Establishment and for the people’s right to have a voice in the process.  He has supported legislation to put this country, its workers and families first.  I am among those that have watched him and supported him.  I can describe him with two adjectives:  passionate and courageous.

Unfortunately, one candidate running against Herrod has a record showing he does not believe in Republican principles.  He is the former Provo Mayor.  After reviewing this information, please ask yourself:  Do the people of Utah’s 3rd Congressional District who believe in Republican principles deserve this kind or representation in Washington DC?  

This sums it up.

Please help us take our party and platform back.  Vote for a Republican who has walked the walk for its principles.  Chris Herrod.  Donate and get involved now!  www.HerrodforCongress.com

1. Affiliation with the Democratic Party

John Curtis was Unaffiliated for a long time, then he registered Democrat in 1998: http://imgur.com/a/K6dUV

John Curtis ran for state senate against Curt Bramble in 2000. Here was his website that year: http://imgur.com/a/RIpOa

John Curtis lost in a landslide to Bramble, but he stayed active in the Democratic Party and was elected Utah County Democratic Party Chairman for one term in 2002: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/975560/Utah-County-Democrats-pick-a-chief.html

In 2007, Jeff Alexander resigned his seat in the legislature. John Curtis went in to the county clerk and switched his affiliation to Republican. He ran against several other candidates, and the Republican delegates gave him a one-vote victory over Chris Herrod, but at that time the state party chair got to make the final choice, and Chairwoman Enid Greene chose Chris Herrod: http://archive.sltrib.com/story.php?ref=/news/ci_8375983

Curtis then ran for Mayor in 2009, but of course that’s a non-partisan race. He won, and then won reelection in 2013.

Nevertheless, Curtis continues to keep close ties to Utah Democrats. He donated to far-left liberal Ralph Becker’s reelection campaign in 2015: http://imgur.com/a/SddvD

According to Aimee Winder Newton, Curtis also donated to the campaign on her Democratic opponent, Dan Snarr, in 2014. However, I do not have access to an original source to back up that claim (though it is highly likely to be true because Snarr is Curtis’s brother-in-law).

2. Backed by Far-Leftist Groups

John Curtis is backed by several far-left groups and individuals. These people are encouraging Democrats to register as Republicans in order to vote in the Republican primary for John Curtis. Here is a small sampling of how these liberal groups are campaigning for John Curtis: http://imgur.com/a/3R8Wn

3. Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

John Curtis is the biggest proponent there is of the controversial $150 million Bus Rapid Transit project. This video explains some of the problems with the BRT project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qFIZNHW-fg

He once said, “We want bus rapid transit, we want it to move forward.” Source: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865598005/Provo-City-Council-pushes-to-advance-bus-rapid-transit.html

Even though citizens successfully collected the required number of signatures for a referendum on BRT, Curtis blocked the proposal from going onto the ballot: http://www.sltrib.com/home/3991954-155/provo-orem-petitioners-push-forward-on

Even the Salt Lake Tribune, which seemingly supports BRT, said he should let the project be put on the ballot: http://www.sltrib.com/opinion/3978974-155/let-them-drive

Ten BRT facts:

  1. The Provo-Orem Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system is a $150 million transit project that will replace UTA’s already existing 830 bus route.
  2. This particular 10.5-mile long route was chosen because it is the only one that qualifies for federal funding, and without those funds the project will not move forward. Even proponents of the project agree that the proposed route was not chosen because it was the best route. Rather, the proposed route was chosen because it qualifies for federal funds.
  3. Funding for the Provo-Orem BRT construction project will come from several different sources. President Obama and UTA have proposed that $75 million come from the federal government, $65 million from Utah County, and $10 million from the cities of Provo and Orem.
  4. The Provo-Orem BRT project will cost approximately $14.3 million per mile to build.
  5. The Provo-Orem BRT road construction project will require the tearing out of two (and in some cases more) lanes of traffic so that bus-only lanes (called “dedicated lanes”) and loading stations can be constructed down the middle of the roads along the BRT route. This construction will occur on major thoroughfares throughout Orem and Provo, including University Parkway, University Avenue, and Provo’s 900 East.
  6. No left turns will be permitted along the Provo-Orem BRT route except at certain traffic lights.
  7. Rather than resolve traffic problems, the Provo-Orem BRT project will create additional traffic problems. Traffic along the construction route will result in more congestion, greater frustration for motorists, longer travel times, and more pollution.
  8. Lanes for car, truck, and bus traffic will be much narrower in areas where dedicated Provo-Orem BRT lanes are installed. Some lanes will be eliminated. Skinnier lanes will also make for more difficult transit for emergency and other larger vehicles.
  9. The Provo-Orem BRT project threatens to divert critical funding from other much-needed road construction and maintenance projects throughout Utah County. (John Curtis’s solution: just raise taxes! That’s why he supported Proposition One.)
  10. The buses running along UTA’s already existing 830 route, which will be replaced by the Provo-Orem BRT system, are running at only a tiny fraction of their capacity: an average of 3,600 daily riders. UTA claims that number will jump to 12,900 riders per day once BRT is built. It is difficult to validate UTA’s claim that ridership will increase simply by adding more buses, exclusive bus-only lanes, and spending $150 million to do so. There is no justification for UTA’s claim that “If you build it, they will come”—especially in light of the low ridership numbers that currently exist along the route.

4. Covering Up a Sex Assault after a Questionable Hiring

Utah’s media has covered this story rather extensively, but there’s a line (bolded below) from this KSL article that juxtaposes the statement Curtis made when the story first broke with differing information that came out a little while later. Here is the article: https://www.ksl.com/?sid=44476085&nid=148

Newly released police records shed light on sexual assault allegations against Provo’s former police chief that forced him to resign in March.

John King said he had consensual sex four times with a volunteer at his department, according to Unified police documents released Tuesday.

The woman reporting a series of assaults by King said otherwise in interviews with investigators. …

… “(The woman) walked into the Utah County Attorney’s Office and disclosed she was raped by the chief of police in Provo,” a Unified police report dated Feb. 9 states.

The woman said she told Provo Mayor John Curtis “brief details” about what happened.

Curtis asked King to step down in March. The mayor and King at the time said the chief was leaving because of family issues and did not mention the sexual misconduct allegations. Later that week, news of the allegations surfaced.

Curtis said King’s reputation was damaged but no policies or laws had been broken. He said he and King agreed it was in the best interest of the city that King resign.

It is quite obvious that Curtis tried to cover up the sex assault allegation when he originally announced King’s resignation. Why did Curtis not just come clean at that time? Even if the allegations against King were false, Curtis should have known that the information would come out through police reports, so why lie initially about the reason for the resignation? Curtis should have either said nothing when King resigned or told the truth rather than make up a false reason for King’s resignation.

Shortly after King’s resignation, the media discovered that King had recently been investigated for sexual assault. Curtis then held a press conference, and it’s pretty funny to watch the media basically call him out for lying initially about why King had resigned. The press conference is available here: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/mayor-says-former-police-chief-resigned-due-to-totality-of/article_524de990-f8cd-58b6-9935-054cfedec595.html

King never should have been hired to begin with. After Provo Police Chief Richard Gregory resigned in 2013, Mayor Curtis did an extensive search. He took over six months to find a new Chief of Police, and had over sixty applicants. Source: http://www.heraldextra.com/provo-names-new-police-chief/article_483109c0-51ef-11e3-a0e8-0019bb2963f4.html

Out of those applicants, Mayor Curtis selected John King, who had a questionable employment history. King worked 25 years in Montgomery County MD, rising to the position of Asst. Chief and there seem to have been no problems there. In 2002 he was promoted to Asst. Chief. Then in 2007 he retired from the county, and took the job of police chief in Gaithersburg MD. King was investigated for claiming a disability pension from Montgomery County, but the investigation was resolved and it was determined he hadn’t broken any laws. Source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/03/08/AR2009030801777.html

King was Chief of Police in Gaithersburg for two-and-a-half years, but In January 2010 the town council met in private to discuss a “personnel matter,” after which they immediately brought in an interim police chief and two days later announced Chief King was leaving “to pursue other opportunities in the private sector.” Source: http://towncourier.com/2010/G3/pdf/TCGThree0110Web.pdf

Then he seems to have been out of work until Dec 2011 when he was hired as Training Director in the Baltimore PD. But he only lasted six months and then he was apparently asked to resign, even being “escorted from his office.” King’s public statement was that the acting Police Commissioner “wants to go in a different direction.” The police spokesman said only that King’s departure was a “personnel matter.”

Sources: http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2012-06-27/news/bal-city-police-training-director-resigns-amid-misconduct-complaints-20120627_1_overtime-slips-king-commanders and http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2012/06/27/head-of-baltimore-police-training-division-resigns/

Despite King’s less than desirable history, in Jan 2014, he was hired to be Provo police chief by John Curtis.

5. Economic Development Failures

A quote from a recent newspaper article mentioning the current Administration’s abject failure to bring new retail to Provo to broaden the tax base (that’s on Mayor Curtis’ watch):

As part of the presentation there was open discussion about the retail gap in the city and how much sales tax revenue the city is losing in various categories. The numbers are surprising.

An exported taxes report shows Provo is losing $24 million a year in restaurant sales tax, $27 million in pharmaceuticals, $16 million to home centers, $32 million in hardware sales, and the greatest net loss in a year is $53 million in groceries.

Curtis said the administration is willing to shift some of its focus away from places like downtown to answer the residents’ call for retail.

“Be careful what you ask for,” he said. “We hear you. We’ll look at incentives, but you will need to be patient, be engaged and you must shop in Provo.”

Source: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/provo/provo-mayor-talks-retail-with-residents-at-town-hall-meeting/article_2c780522-d569-5ca4-a9b2-bc313417f9e9.html

6. Illegal/Unethical Use of City Resources

EXAMPLE ONE:

John Curtis’s top political appointee is Corey Norman, who holds the title of “Provo Deputy Mayor.” In 2016, Norman was fined $250 for violating a state law that prohibits “using the email of a public entity to advocate for or against a ballot proposition.” Source: http://www.sltrib.com/news/3960425-155/provo-orem-officials-fined-for-illegally

Here’s the exact wording of the law:

Utah Code 20A-11-1203 “…a public entity may not make an expenditure from public funds for political purposes or to influence a ballot proposition…” (violation results in a Class B misdemeanor)

Utah Code 20A-11-1205 “…a person may not send an email using the email of a public entity: (a) for a political purpose; (b) to advocate for or against a ballot proposition…”

Curtis refused to reprimand Corey Norman for breaking this law. In fact, he responded by threatening to sue Utah County Clerk-Auditor Bryan Thompson for imposing the law. (Norman has also stated that he sent out the email under the direction of Curtis.)

EXAMPLE TWO:

This anecdote comes from a longtime Provo resident:

Mayor Curtis is very very good at some things. One is marketing – his PR and media budget is massive, and he “sells” not just Provo City, but himself.

A city employee tells me that when the Mayor came on board, there were three people in Public Relations. He let one go as part of the 2008 cost saving measures made necessary by the Recession. But since then he has hired 8-10 more people. They do a great job of filming videos, doing contests, giving away ice cream and tee shirts, making a splash on social media. Provology. The Rooftop Concerts. No question they are good at what they do, and John Curtis is too. He’s a great ambassador for John Curtis.

EXAMPLE THREE:

Provo City holds a monthly concert during warm weather months called “The Rooftop Concert Series,” which is funded by the city. On June 2, 2017, John Curtis showed up and hijacked the concert by going on stage and having his supporters go through the audience to gather signatures for his congressional campaign. Perhaps this was not illegal (or perhaps it is), but it definitely raises eyebrows and is an ethical use of city funds.

7. Intimidation Tactics

John Curtis’s Provo City employees used intimidation tactics to prevent BRT petitioners from gathering signatures in public areas. Source: http://www.sltrib.com/home/3932939-155/rolly-memo-to-signature-gatherers-beware

Here is an anecdote sent to me by a Provo citizen and activist:

Connected with the BRT saga were two well-publicized instances of Mayor Curtis getting squarely in the way of the rights of the people – his own constituents. This is an obvious concern for anyone who wants to feel their federal elected official is going to actually represent them instead of yanking away their rights.

The first time I heard of someone being removed it was Sharon Anderson, a petition organizer. She called me to tell me she had been ordered to leave the Rec Center by an employee. In her account, “…about 8:30 a young man came out and stood nearby as I was speaking with one of the citizens.  When we were through talking, he came over and said I would have to leave because no soliciting was allowed on city property which he said included the whole block.  I asked him ‘What about free speech?’ and he repeated soliciting was not allowed.  I said I wasn’t selling anything, but he still said I would have to leave…”

The second instance was when Mayor Curtis instructed the Police Dept. to remove people who were collecting signatures on the referendum petition from two places: the grounds of the Rec Center and the grounds of the County Building.

Soon after an 80-year-old petition circulator named Philip Hinckley told me he had been at the County Building, and two city policemen came out of the building and told him he couldn’t stand so near the door. It was a hot day and Philip asked them if he could just stay under the building overhang for the shade, many feet from the door. They responded he would have to stand in the sun, about 20 feet from the door. He complied, but the sun started to bother him and he went home before long.

At that point I spoke to Bryan Thompson, County Clerk-Auditor and Bill Lee, County Commissioner, and they both verified that signature gatherers could be on public property. So the city policemen left our people alone after that, on county property. But the battle on city property at the Rec center heated up, and Philip Hinckley, in addition to four other people at various times, were escorted off the property by between two and four officers, several times.

This got the attention of the Tribune, the ACLU, and Libertas. Sources: https://www.facebook.com/libertasutah/videos/1199233813443607/?fallback=1 and http://www.sltrib.com/news/3960425-155/provo-orem-officials-fined-for-illegally

8. iProvo

iProvo was “a financially distressed fiber Internet service in Provo.” In 2013, it was “sold to Google — for a whole dollar. The city, meanwhile, will have to pay millions to close the deal and to pay off bonds used to build the network in the first place.” Source: https://venturebeat.com/2013/04/24/iprovo-sad/

In 2011, John Curtis raised utilities to pay for the iProvo bond: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/provo/provo-s-utility-rate-increase-fee-set/article_45ae703b-1480-5923-89c5-683397046899.html

9. Parking: Convention Center and Downtown

John Curtis put Provo City at significant liability by breaking the city’s 2009 contract with Utah County to provide parking in exchange for the county building its convention center in downtown Provo. Utah County is suing Provo for at least $4 million in damages: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/utah-county-sues-provo-for-millions-over-convention-center-parking/article_194fad5e-bc40-56b3-b409-ec9dc6a46ad6.html

From the Herald article above:

The county, the city and the redevelopment agency entered an interlocal agreement in 2009 outlining the responsibilities of each entity for building the convention center, which has been operational since 2012.

That agreement stated Provo and the Provo Redevelopment Agency will “Provide, at their expense, all parking spaces, parking facilities, parking lots, parking structures, and related real property, easements and appurtenances, as required to both meet Provo City’s requirements and to adequately serve Phase One of the Convention Center … at such locations and in such a manner as approved by Utah County.”

According to the complaint, neither Provo nor the redevelopment agency have kept up that part of the agreement.

The Utah Valley Convention Center is a huge tourism draw for downtown Provo. However, the Convention Center is losing a ton of business over the lack of parking, which in turn hurts Provo downtown businesses.

Here’s another article that provides more context on the parking issue: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/provo/utah-county-and-provo-spar-over-parking-for-the-utah/article_640cb46c-2ca4-52dc-8b7c-9256a2175974.html

10. Parking: Neighborhoods

Provo has a parking crisis in certain neighborhoods in the city because Planning & Development for years pushed higher density and lower parking ratios, assuming that people would magically stop using cars. They didn’t. That’s on Mayor Curtis’ watch. Source: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/provo/provo-in-the-slow-lane-on-parking-problems/article_c93ebe61-87ed-5988-b57b-7bbb7e603a82.html

11. Property Taxes

Curtis raised property taxes by 2.28% in 2015, and he proposed raising them by another 3% in 2016: http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=40077694

12. Proposition One

Proposition One was a controversial 2015 ballot proposal to increase sales taxes permanently for roads and UTA: 60% of the money would have gone to cities and counties for roads, and 40% would have gone to UTA as a blank check for UTA to use however it wanted.

John Curtis didn’t just support Proposition One; he actually wrote the pro-Proposition One argument: https://vote.utah.gov/vote/profile/viewPDF.html?id=251250502

Proposition One failed in Utah County by a total of 59.18% against, and only 40.82% in favor: http://www.utahcounty.gov/dept/clerkaud/Elections/documents/SProp1Canvass.pdf

13. RAP Tax

John Curtis campaigned in favor of Provo City’s RAP tax, which was placed on the ballot in 2015. Source: http://www.provo.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=6045

He spent $2,600 promoting the RAP tax: http://imgur.com/a/t9MmY

The RAP tax will cost Provo residents $1.2 million annually.

14. Spending Increases

Larry Walters, a member of the Provo City Council’s Budget Advisory Committee, is running for Provo City Mayor. He wrote this on his 2017 campaign website:

Recent spending trends cannot be maintained. … [S]ince 2008, the per person cost of Provo City government has increased at twice the rate of inflation. We are now spending more per person than at any point in the past 15 years, after adjusting for inflation. We cannot support this rate of spending growth into the future.

15. Tax Increases

This graphic outlines Curtis’s love affair with raising taxes: http://imgur.com/a/ftx5D

16. Transparency

John Curtis doesn’t post his campaign financial information on Provo City’s website: http://www.sltrib.com/news/5332737-155/gehrke-for-all-the-hoopla-signature

17. Utah Transit Authority (UTA)

John Curtis maintains a close relationship with the corrupt Utah Transit Authority (UTA). He pushed for the appointment of Sherrie Hall Everett to UTA’s Board of Trustees. Ms. Everett is perhaps UTA’s biggest apologist and defender, even in the midst of all of UTA’s well-documented corruption.

Sherrie went on a tirade recently against Brent Taylor, the one reformer on UTA’s Board:

http://www.sltrib.com/home/5240810-155/attacked-online-new-uta-board-member

18. Utility Fee Increases

John Curtis loves to hide tax increases through utility fee hikes. It is difficult to track all of the utility fee increases that he has imposed over the years. Here is what Senator Howard Stephenson said about this practice in an email to state delegates on June 14, 2017: “Provo Mayor John Curtis has a history of promoting new taxes, fees, and bond obligations.  That is a non-starter for me. He perfected the art of hiding tax increases in utility bill fees by tacking on fees unrelated to the cost of the utility.  With that practice, he has opened a Pandora’s box that the legislature will now have to close before other cities duplicate it.”

According to Provo City, “Transfers from Enterprise utility funds provide a transfer of 11% of utility sales to the General Fund each fiscal year.” In other words, Provo is billing Provo residents for utilities costs that don’t actually exist, and then the city takes that extra revenue and puts it into its general fund, which can be used to pay for all kinds of other expenses that have nothing to do with utilities. Source: http://www.provo.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=5764

19. Zoning Enforcement

Zoning compliance is poor, because John Curtis said at the beginning of his first term he wouldn’t aggressively enforce zoning violations. As a result, some neighborhoods (Provost South, for instance) have passed the tipping point, are now at 80% rentals, and are no longer healthy viable neighborhoods. The Provo City Council made zoning compliance their No. 1 priority for two years in a row. But the Curtis Administration dragged their feet because of a power struggle about the budget. That’s on Mayor Curtis’ watch.

Hillary’s America – The Movie – A Decisive Message for 2016

TRAILER

Last week I previewed Dinesh D’Souza’s newest film Hillary’s America, The Secret History of the Democratic Party. I was on the edge of my seat as it moved through history, documenting Congressional votes and naming the who’s who of the real racists, the real oppressors of today, and exposing the lies of the elitists and progressive media.

IMG_1403

We interviewed Dinesh and also Stephen Limbaugh (yes, he is a cousin) who wrote the score, and I was delighted to visit with our friend Jerry Molen again. the film’s producer.

Although there are certainly a few establishment Republicans that have joined with bi-partisan votes that have actually enabled the Democratic agenda through the years, we are focused now on electing a President that will turn this nation around.

To know and understand the ideology, machinations, and strategy of the Democrats and their soon-to-be nominee for U.S. President Hillary Clinton, we urge everyone, especially members of the black and hispanic communities to see this film. It opened in theaters around the country this week.

HILLARY’S AMERICA – THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

PROGRESSIVE CRITICS
The hard Left, including Variety Magazine with its expected progressive views are literally apoplectic about the nomination of Donald Trump. They want the masses, which they control with thought policing and free speech silencing, to believe that this man Trump is precisely what he is not. But that is a strategy. Today’s riots and shootings make my years of growing up in Hollywood and watching Watts on fire at night from my Hollywood Hills home look tame. Today’s marxist community organizers are hard at work to make sure a Trump election will not happen. Not because he is a racist, but because THEY are and they are deceptively covering up who they really are.

The truth is, Donald Trump is speaking more boldly and bravely than any other political candidate has ever dared, without even spitting up a burp of politically correct pablum. Instead, for every pundit push-back, he presses forward even harder.

In the beginning the mainstream-controlled media wanted you to believe that only 1% thought Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee. Most other media outlets wanted you to believe that he was simply a clown, and they drilled that story over and over, until you would believe it.

The Republican establishment lost at the Republican National Convention. But during my stay at the convention last week on media row reporting for my radio station KTALK Media AM 630 in Salt Lake City, I was able to navigate in private circles, including one in which I was with Reince Priebus and the Bloomberg media commentator, who was chagrined that I did not know who he was. I still cannot remember his name, and that’s the point. Who would say, “Do you know who I am?” I honestly didn’t care “who” he was, in that sense. The progressive media are an entitled and arrogant bunch. I will share more in a report to follow on that topic.

We know “who” they are in this sense: They are progressives. They hate this country. They promote globalism. And their strategy is to create tension, division, contention and anger.

Why do so many people believe what they hear or see from this mainstream media? Why should you believe the MSM? Why? I have personally witnessed from my early days in political advocacy that they LIE. They LIE unabashedly, and they get away with it because we have not held them accountable. That is, until Donald Trump entered this race. Few things have been the same since. He has emboldened other politicians and pundits, especially those on the conservative side to speak with courage.

My favorite speech of the Republican National Convention was the one Laura Ingraham delivered. She nailed it. NAILED it. She schooled her colleagues and told them to “Do YOUR Job!” and the crowd erupted in the biggest applause of the week.

You need to watch Laura in action. And by the way, see if you can catch that “Hitler” salute the progressive Left is now saying Laura gave. Really? Serious? These progressive critics are pathetic.


LAURA INGRAHAM CALLS OUT THE PROGRESSIVE MEDIA

Now Trump is the nominee. Like the Bozo the Clown punching bag I had as a kid, for every punch, he bounced back up, and he has defied all odds. He proved that he was not a clown but that he was dead serious. His crass delivery has not-so-oddly drawn more voters to the Republican party in this election than ever before. These voters have been disenfranchised by a globalist sell out that has cost them dearly.

Should we be surprised? Too many jobs lost. The people are beyond hurting. They are angry from the ignored pain of NAFTA and the “free” trade agreements the Clinton’s brought to this country and the reckless immigration policy depressing wages and decreasing the number of jobs available.


WHAT IS NEEDED TO WIN IN NOVEMBER

A president has the authority to renegotiate those foolish trade agreements, but even the Bush administration did not take action. It took Donald Trump to open up the subject and because of him, the GOP is now the new home for the blue collar voter. (More on the trade topic later.)

I have news for the Republican Party. It has been unresponsive for too long and has allowed the progressives to control the narrative and the votes. The GOP is going to need that blue collar vote if it is to defeat Hillary.

Hillary’s America is a strong vehicle. I urge you to get tickets to see this film today!

HILLARY’S AMERICA – THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

HILLARY AND THE PROGRESSIVE LEFT’S PROPAGANDA AND STRATEGY

The Left’s strategy is found in a small book I’ve had since it was first published in the 1971 and which I annotated and have watched closely it’s impact over the years. It’s called Rules for Radicals, written by Saul Alinsky, the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis while at Wellesley. If you have never read it, here it is. You will note that she is full of marxist-style community organizing philosophy.

Short of spoiler alert, in summary, Hillary’s America documents the Democratic Party’s birth, from the Civil War to today. It describes in great detail the consistency of lies and hypocrisy in the radical Left’s propaganda and purpose. This film includes the Democratic Party’s support of slavery to contemporary policies that continue to keep the masses captive to a government system that keeps people in poverty (e.g. oppression).

All of this has been and continues to be done in the name of fighting oppression and of course showering goodies down on all. This is the ultimate counterfeit.

And so Alinsky got it right when he dedicated his strategy book, Rules for Radicals, to the first radical (counterfeit) of them all – Lucifer.

In fact, former presidential candidate Ben Carson delivered one of the best speeches of the Republican National Convention. This point was front and center in his message to the delegates as a reason why Hillary needs to be exposed and then defeated in November.

WATCH BEN CARSON’S FULL SPEECH

After Carson’s speech I returned to my hotel room and surfed the networks, catching their take on his speech. Fox News praised his truthful expose. MSNBC mocked him and called him the embarrassment of the night, ridiculing his reference to Alinsky and Lucifer, as if that had anything to do with Hillary. CNN was also critical.

This is why I say on the Liberty Lineup Radio Show that friends do not let friends listen to mainstream mind-controlling media. The networks are controlled by the multinational globalist corporations. They are Godless and care only about the bottom line, even if it means to sell out domestic jobs. Well, the people are rising up against that oppression the Democrats created.

Of course they want to ridicule Ben Carson. He and Trump want nothing to do with institutions or governments that will continue to sell out America and its greatness, its jobs and its sovereignty to foreign entities that hate capitalism and liberty. Get ready for their strategic response. It’s already happening.


THE CORRUPTION IN THE CLINTON FOUNDATION

This film Hillary’s America backs up not just her radical ideas that she and her husband brought to the White House the first time around, but it goes into details of the Clinton Foundation, with a look-back at another time in history when foundations became the back door laundering of a fascist, crony capitalist Peron regime in Argentina. This song “And the Money Kept Rolling in (and Out)” from the Broadway musical Evita! describes the Clintons best and should be THEIR theme song. D’Souza used this analogy in his film. It was an analogy I have also used.

SEE HILLARY’S AMERICA – THE FILM AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
Hillary’s America has opened this weekend. Make it a box office success by going to see it and by telling your friends. Especially connect with your African-American friends.

No, this film is not propaganda. It is history that has been deliberately kept from you. Mainstream media are propaganda-driven because they are progressive. If this film contained false accusations or were propaganda, law suits would be flying from every direction at this film and its producers. There have been NONE!

It hits hard and the progressive media is expected to continue to call out the dogs to discredit. Especially during the Democratic National Convention.

THE CLINTON FOUNDATION CONNECTION TO THE OREGON AMBUSH

You may know that I’ve been close to the ranchers that were ambushed in Oregon, killing rancher LaVoy Finicum. I connected the dots not only to Harry Reid and his corrupt politics, but also to the Clinton Foundation over its Russian deal to own U.S. uranium mining, from which the Clintons will profit. It’s called Uranium One.

The Clintons are crooked and have been using the environmental movement, as did Al Gore, as a cover up for their own profit. Harry Reid is doing the same in Nevada.

So now in south eastern Oregon, once the most prosperous county in the state, the Clintons have stopped the entire logging industry in the name of saving the forests, and they have continued to push the ranchers off their grazing lands. Now with one last rancher in the area, he and his son are in federal prison for protecting their private property.

Other ranchers went to their aid and support to protest this unjust sentence so that the world would know of this corruption. Now several other ranchers are in jail for exercising their first amendment rights. The company is Uranium One. When you see this film, if you listen closely, you will hear all about it. Yes, the Clinton’s have sold us out to the Russians who will now be mining uranium. In Oregon. Check it out.

It has been anticipated that the Left would spin their reviews against this film. Yes, they mock it and then they distract with lies. But then why wouldn’t they? They are the masters of the lie. That’s all part of Alinsky’s strategy, outlined in Rules for Radicals.

They know that if they repeat a lie long enough, people will believe it as truth.

Labor Day Should Be Renamed Memorial Day II

White background - long

Note:  My email linked to this post unintentionally calculated numbers that did not reflect specifically lost manufacturing jobs.  The stats are accurate in this post.  My thanks to those vigilant readers that caught the error.  

First let’s praise all that is good about America: A strong tradition in free enterprise. Innovations in technology that brought the world Internet communications and software programs unmatched. The best medical research on earth. Excellence in strong defense and national security. The everyday, hardworking mother and father, in the workplace or at home. And an indomitable spirit that pulls itself up by the bootstraps despite every effort by elected officials to kill the American Dream becoming more and more elusive. Now, Labor Day. Let’s be honest. Labor Day should be a sort of Memorial Day Part II. Continue reading Labor Day Should Be Renamed Memorial Day II

Time for Doug Wright to Retire?

Doug Wright, KSLOn March 20, 2013, Doug Wright aired some damaging segments on Utah’s caucus-convention system.  He is the voice of KSL during those morning hours, and to many his voice carries a tacit endorsement of the sponsoring organizaton that owns the station, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 

 

Under the Fair Use Doctrine, we’ve posted small segments of KSL’s radio talk show host Doug Wright discussing Utah’s Caucus-Convention system. What irony. He called those of us who are working to keep the grassroots voice from being disenfranchised by the elitists and the media outlets of which he is a part … the “elitists.”

This is an unbelievable spin, and an example of how the grassroots is being entirely misrepresented. It was so alarming, I was compelled to post my comments here. My sentiments are shared by many who have worked so hard to keep this party from being controlled by the “establishment” who are the rich and famous elitists and DC lobbyists threatening to destroy it.

By the way, for posting this information, I received a phone call from an attorney at Kirton and McConkie demanding that I remove these clips because I had violated “intellectual property.” Actually, no. I did not. I checked with my attorney and the clips remain. Enjoy the spin. Apparently Doug had quite a tantrum about it. Bless his heart.

Part II

Part III

I have a message for Doug Wright:

Doug, you are obfuscating the truth. You know you are.

You know that you represent the liberal Rove Wing elitists because you constantly brand those of us who are conservative as “extremists” the same way your wing of the party branded Ronald Reagan years ago. Continue reading Time for Doug Wright to Retire?

Don’t Blame The Utah Caucus

What’s all the fuss about over Utah’s Caucus-Convention system again?  From time to time, especially when candidates and incumbents are very sore losers, they and their supporters collaborate to get rid of Utah’s election system that spit them out.

It’s the system in which Parties nominate their candidates in a convention, and hold Primary run-offs between the top two if no one gets 60% of the vote. Continue reading Don’t Blame The Utah Caucus
