Oh Look! Richard Burr

Fellow Conservatives:

Seven Republican senators have now been linked to the racial attacks against conservative Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

The financial report for Thad Cochran’s super PAC was released earlier this week and contains two alarming details.

First, it shows that the following seven GOP senators gave a total of $160,000 to Thad Cochran’s super PAC: 

1.  Mitch McConnell (R-KY) $50,000 (202) 224-2541
2.  Bob Corker (R-TN) $30,000 (202) 224-3344
3.  Rob Portman (R-OH) $25,000 (202) 224-3353
4.  Orrin Hatch (R-UT) $25,000 (202) 224-5251
5.  Richard Burr (R-NC) $20,000 (202) 224-3154
6.  Roy Blunt (R-MO) $5,000 (202) 224-5721
7.  Mike Crapo (R-ID) $5,000 (202) 224-6142

Second, it shows that the PAC then gave a similar amount to a liberal group to run racial attacks against Chris McDaniel.

These senators fully funded ads that urged Democrats to “cross over and vote in the republican primary” and claimed that a McDaniel win would be a loss “for race relationships between blacks and whites.”

They also helped pay for fliers that said, “The Tea Party Intends to Prevent You From Voting” and suggested McDaniel would roll back civil rights.

And perhaps worst of all, they helped pay thousand of dollars to Democratic activists to do so called “canvasing” to turn out votes for Cochran.

Imagine: Renee McDermott has a Communications Group

Ya think Leah Justice (TDB) is part of that group?   


Meeting Time Again

Tue, 07/22/2014 – 11:56 — Jack

Our regular meetings are scheduled either as the “last something” or the “first something” of each month, and so they generally come in bunches with lots of dead space in between. We should really space them out more, but old habits die hard, and these are no exception. Anyway, here we go again: Men’s Club on Saturday (7/26, 8:30 am, HQ), Women’s Club on Monday (7/28, 11:00 am, HQ), and the next Big Country Breakfast a week from Saturday (8/2, 8:00 am, HQ). Also, Renee McDermott’s Communications group is having a special meeting on Sunday (7/27, 2:00 pm, HQ).

A lot of meetings, but there’s a lot going on so please come help us out if you can. The calendar is always there for you to check on meeting dates.

Letter to the Tryon Daily Bulletin

Letter to the Editor

Upon returning from an extended vacation, I read with amusement about the Republican’s Fourth of July booth. If the date was July 4, 2008 and the dunking booth had featured George Bush and Sarah Palin, do you think those same “outraged” people would have marched up to the County Commissioners’ meeting and demanded that the Commissioners disavow the dunking booth?You can bet your Obama phone they would not!

And how about the folks who wrote letters saying that the people in Tryon were too nice to be so disrespectful to our President? During the eight years George Bush was President, you only needed to drive a block or two in Tryon before you saw a nasty, disrespectful, anti-Bush bumper sticker. Did those same people write letters about that? Uh no. Did they tap on the drivers’ windows and tell them that it isn’t “Tryon” to be so nasty and that they should remove the sticker? I am guessing not.

Regarding the t-shirt, I was told that it was one of 65 and was the only one like it. If the not-so-nice lady had not damaged the t-shirt and the resulting flap had not ensued, it probably would have never seen the light of day, let alone been featured in the Bulletin.

During the 2008 election, the Bulletin ran an ad without the prior approval or consent for a local restaurant advertising a turkey special. Much to the shock and horror of the restaurant, the ad manager at the Bulletin had used a very unflattering photo of George Bush with the turkey special. Not one letter was seen in response to that disrespectful display.

During the Bush administration, there wasn’t anything too nasty, too disrespectful, or too vile for the liberals to say or do. When Republicans objected, we were told that it was their right to freely voice their opinions. I am very tired of the double standard! Politically speaking, I am tired of being nice. I am calling it like I see it.

Now let’s talk about respect. I do believe that the office of the President of the United States should be respected. Someone needs to tell that to Barack Obama. He neither respects the office, the Constitution, American citizens, or America.

He does not respect our flag, as evidenced by the fact that he flatly refused to wear a flag pin on his lapel until so much heat came from his base that he finally gave in and stuck one on. There are also numerous photos of him giving the “crotch salute” with hands folded down in front when the National Anthem is played when others around him are saluting or have their hands over their hearts.

Obama does not respect our borders, as evidenced by his policy of an open border, encouraging gangs, disease, and terrorists to gain free access to our country. He has tied the hands of the border patrol and made them targets for the cartels, refusing to send them help. And let’s not forget turning five of the most vicious terrorists in the world loose to plot the demise of thousands, if not millions, of Americans.

Obama does not respect our laws or our elected representatives in Congress. He picks and chooses which laws, or which parts of laws, he decides to enforce. He disrespects the Congress saying that he “has a pen and a phone” and he will do whatever he wants with or without them. Clearly, he does not respect our Constitution.

Obama does not respect our Ambassadors and military as evidenced by the travesty in Benghazi and then jetted off the very next day to Las Vegas for a big party and Democrat fundraiser. His administration “outed” the Navy Seals who took out Bin Ladin and outed the head of the CIA in Afghanistan. He ignores the military salutes and makes decorated Marines hold his umbrella. The disgrace at the VA hospitals in the past six years is enough for another whole letter.

He disrespects our free will and relationships with our doctors by forcing us to buy his Obamacare health insurance and by putting egregious financial burdens onto small businesses. Yet Obama and Congress are exempt! What disrespect for the American people!

He disrespects our hard working business owners by telling them, “You didn’t build that!” He disrespects our faith by cancelling the National Day of Prayer.

When the going gets tough, Obama goes golfing – more than 180 times – or heads off to yet another multi-million dollar taxpayer-funded lavish vacation. What leadership!

If you want to be outraged, be outraged about all of the monumental scandals that have been perpetual with this administration. Be outraged that Obama is using government agencies such as the IRS, EPA, and NSA to attack his political opponents.   Be outraged that Obama has gutted our military at a time when world violence is exploding. Be outraged that our privacy and our freedom are being whittled away. Be outraged that Obama is determined to destroy our nation, for that is the true outrage, not a little dunking booth and a t-shirt.

The Rat Story

A tourist walked into a Chinese curio shop in San Francisco. While looking around at the exotic merchandise, he noticed a very lifelike, life-sized, bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but was so incredibly striking the tourist decided he must have it. He took it to the old shop owner and asked, “How much for the bronze rat?”

“Ahhh, you have chosen wisely!  It is $12 for the rat and $100 for the story,” said the wise old man.  The tourist quickly pulled out twelve dollars. I’ll just take the rat, you can keep the story”.

As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, the tourist noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and had begun following him down the street.

A couple blocks later he looked behind him and saw to his horror the herd of rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began squealing.

Sweating now, the tourist began to trot toward San Francisco Bay.

Again, after a couple blocks, he looked around only to discover that the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS, and were squealing and coming toward him faster and faster.

Terrified, he ran to the edge of the Bay and threw the bronze rat as far as he could into the Bay.  Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after the bronze rat and were all drowned.

The man walked back to the curio shop in Chinatown.

“Ahhh,” said the owner, “You came back for story?”

“No sir,” said the man, “I came back to see if you have a bronze Democrat.”

Keep Your Eye On The Ball!

I want to thank the Polk County Democrats and the TDB for making a Dunking Booth the major topic of

the day.  Before I begin, I would like to add some additional information to Leah Justice’s article.

We did have Obama image on a banner. But it was not the focal point of the banner. We had a Kay Hagan banner to

throw balls at with the heading that said, “She voted 98% of the time with Obama and was the swing

vote for Obamacare, FIRE KAY HAGAN 2014.” She was standing beside Obama, but there was no need to

showcase him for his shortcomings as a president. I can understand why the Democrats did not want to

mention Kay Hagan, since she is running for re-election this November (Vote Thom Tillis… just saying). I

digress: The main issue: The democrats want you to focus on a dunking booth and a t-shirt that they say

is offensive.

We say that is our list is all that needs to be discussed.

1. What about the issue of Obama’s executive order back in June, 2012 where he stated in a press

conference: “No illegal would be deported under the age of 30, or who arrived in the US before the

age of 16, or who is a registered student at any college.” Those words created the crisis we see today

with illegal immigrants at the border.


Another issue with immigration is the fact that the Executive Branch only has the power to enforce laws that

Congress writes. The Immigration and Naturalization Act specifies limited cases where the president can suspend deportation of an illegal alien. But it does not give him the power to interrupt the deportation of whole classes of illegal aliens.

This administration is also asking to throw $3.7 billion dollars to hire more administrative personnel, immigration processors,the cost to transport them into other states, and additional immigration attorneys. Yet, he only wants

to spend $100 million or so to send more border patrol agents. None of this proposed spending will be

used to stop this foreign invasion.


2. What about focusing on the VA issue? This administration has turned a blind eye to this agency and

its corrupt management. Obama attacked Republicans on the campaign trail in ‘08 and ‘12 with attack

ads promising to fix the problems that Bush created. Unfortunately, they have gotten worse under his

leadership or the lack thereof!


3. What about the Bengazi or the “Hillagazi” cover-up! Democrats have been silent on this topic

because it does not look good for Obama, Hillary, or Valerie Jarrett. Valerie and Hillary deceived the

public with lies to help get Obama re-elected. Hillary had the nerve to say to congress, “What difference

does it make” regarding the death of 4 of our citizens. This happened on her watch. It is a disgusting act

of defiance to the American people!


4. What about the release of 5 terrorists for 1 traitor? Obama said that he released Al Qaeda

terrorists. But what people don’t understand is that the group holding Bergdahl was the Haqqani

Terrorist group. Why would the Haqqani Terrorist group request the release of 5 Al Qaeda members

who do not belong with them? Al Qaeda is Sunni Arab and the Haqqani is Pashtun. They do not work

together. They are two separate factions fighting in Iraq. So why would the president give up Al Qaeda

amendment right.


5. What about focusing on Hillary Clinton and her recent book of lies and deceit? She champions

herself as a fighter for women’s rights and for working class women. She admitted in an interview that

she has not driven a car in twenty years. She also lied about being broke after she and Bill left the White

House, but she was able to put down $800,000 on a NY home. Her definition of “broke” is drastically

different from the working class woman. How ethical do you really have to be to be president? To

sweep the lie under the rug, she said that she will donate the proceeds of the book to the Clinton

Foundation, which she and Bill operate. How convenient! In 1975, she also defended a child rapist and

knew that he was guilty. That must make every mother proud!!!!


6. What about focusing on the recent Supreme Court Ruling about Hobby Lobby and Obamacare?

The media and Democrats will not discuss the details of the ruling, only to say that women’s rights are

under attack. That is far from the truth. Hobby Lobby provided 16 forms of birth control well before

Obamacare came into law. They did not want to provide the additional 4 means of birth control that

killed fertilized eggs (basically abortion) like the morning after pill. The pro-choice groups say that these

products do not cause abortions, but the FDA labels state the opposite.


I could go on and on talking about the IRS targeting conservatives and the 2 million emails that

supposedly vanished with a computer crash, but why should I? Everyone who cares already knows the

important issues that we must focus on. It is the liberal left and the Democrats who choose to ignore

them. The Democrats will justify their actions by hiding behind the Constitution and say they have

the right, but will vilify anyone else for the same actions if it does not fit their narrative. The double

standards are pathetic. I would suggest to the 5% of liberals, who think that they are speaking for the

majority, to redirect your focus on issues that really matter to the American People!


I would like to leave you with one last comment. Margaret Johnson, who modeled the t-shirt “Liberals

Suck” in the TDB, conveniently left out one important detail about how she acquired the shirt. Another

middle-aged woman came by our booth, grabbed the shirt from the hanger and shouted “This is

disgusting”. She then smeared her BBQ sandwich on it, threw it to the ground, stomped on it, and

walked away without paying for it (if you do not believe me, look at the picture).


I chased her down and demanded that she pay for it. She refused and kept walking. I alerted 2 officers and they took

up the chase. They blocked her car from leaving with their police cruiser. She originally denied her actions to

the officers, but then retracted her comments. Then she said that she may have bumped into the shirt.

She stated “What difference does it make? They can just wash it out”. I overheard the officers tell her

that she has 2 options. Either come back to the booth to pay for it or go to jail. She paid for the shirt and

then took it over the Democrat booth. The Republicans could have pressed charges but WE TOOK THE

HIGH ROAD, as we usually do and let it slide.


Ask yourself 2 questions. Should we silence others’ 1st minority or majority? Or, should we applaud a person for

vandalism because that person disagrees with the 1st Amendment Right being expressed by another person? I would

say “NO” to both!


Polk County Democrates In Uproar About Republican Booth July 4th

As you know, the Democrats have been very vocal about our GOP booth on the 4th like to set the record straight about the facts surrounding the booth that you will not hear anywhere else.

The booth was a huge success! If you had volunteered that day, you would agree that we had more visitors to our booth than any other vendor (except for those offering food & beverages). The majority of the visitors made positive comments about our dunking booth and also the material that we were giving away for free. The Democrats would like to make you think that everyone walking by was disgusted and offended with the dunking booth banners and

Nothing could be further from the truth. If you do not believe me, just ask any of the volunteers who worked that day. We had planned to keep the dunking booth open from 12-4. However, the number of participants was so great with children and adults that we did not shut down the booth until 7:00pm.

As for the shirt being displayed in the TDB, it was one of 63 shirts offered for sale for $5.00. We had five designs, (Gadsden Flag, Freedom, Peace Symbol, and US Constitution) in a variety of colors and sizes. They used one shirt to push their agenda against free speech.

As you can see, the Democrats will use the only fact that will fit their narrative and disregard the other facts to the
story.   Did anyone happen to notice the spot of food on the shoulder of the shirt that the woman was modeling for the TDB?  The democrats forgot to tell the commissioners or the TDB how they acquired the shirt.

Let me explain it to you:

While I and many other volunteers were manning the dunking booth, a female named Kristina Ann Provines (not Margret Johnson) took that one and only shirt off of the rack. She was seen getting BBQ sauce on the shirt and she then said “This is disgusting” and threw it on the ground and stomped away. She did not offer to pay for the shirt.

She proceeded up the road in front of the Womack building toward the Democrat HQ.  I went after her and asked her to pay for the shirt. She replied, “I will not. I alerted 2 officers and they took up the chase. They blocked her car from leaving with their police cruiser. She originally denied her actions to the officers, but then retracted her comments and said that she may have accidentally bumped into the shirt. She then stated “What difference does it make? ( (Sound Familiar?)  They can just wash it out”. I was told by one of the officers that she was given two options. Either come back to the booth to pay for it or go to jail.  She paid for the shirt and then took it over the Democrat booth.

The Republicans could have pressed charges but WE TOOK THE HIGH ROAD, as we usually do, and let it slide. If this was an accident as she had stated, WHY did it take two officers to make her pay for it?????

Allen West’s – Top Ten Reasons to Vote Democrat

Allen West is the man.  The conservative movement needs a lot more stuff like this and we needed it yesterday.

I’ll add one of my own to this list.

I’ll vote Democrat because I hate capitalism. I hate it so much that I will tweet about how much I hate it from my iPhone while drinking a Starbucks.

10. I’ll vote Democrat because I can’t wait for college football season to be delayed or cancelled because the student athletes are union employees.

9. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe oil company’s profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

8. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

7. I’ll vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

6. I’ll vote Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that get police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

5. I’ll vote Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

4. I’ll vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the Social Security from those who paid into it.

3. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should NOT be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

2. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

And the Number One reason I’ll vote Democrat is:

1. I’ll vote Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, fish or frog.

Polk County Republican Party – Not A Big Deal??

It is not a big deal.  The Dems are all in a tizzy because for once they are on the receiving side.  Such a storm brewing about the banners on the dunking booth.  The Polk County Republican Party had more activity around its booth than any other booth.  Parents and kids were having fun.

As far as I know we still have the 1st amendment – @ least until Obama does another one of his illegal executive orders

 I find it more than a little “odd” because I clearly remember

(and probably have it saved for posterity) when Liberals were claiming Bush was Hitler and deserved to be assassinated not to mention when the Left  applauded when liberals were describing Sarah Palin as a c#*t

The double-standard hypocrites are pathetic

FYI – from what I saw, the banners were about Hillary Clinton and her disastrous time as Secretary of State; Specifically on her watch how we “lost” four (4) Americans and then she stood in front of each of the parents and the flag draped coffins and lied to the families. The other appeared to be a banner about Kay Hagan – there was not anything about President Obama’s failures.

My guess is that there was no need to berate Barack Obama as he has done this country a great and long-overdue service by providing three essential things: An administration that is so shamelessly radical and racist, only complete ideologues can deny it, secondly a great example of the failure of socialistic policies, and thirdly, a pack of inept, arrogant, complete dolts to execute it.

We have children being housed in Metal cages in boarder cities all around this country and a dunking booth is what Renee McDermott and her followers are up in arms about???   Please

Words Have Meaning

This study says Millennials (ages 18-29) support gay marriage and legalized marijuana and want guaranteed healthcare, housing and income, BUT they also think government is inefficient and wasteful and are suspicious of government regarding privacy and over regulation.

They don’t like the word capitalism, but the majority want to own a small business. They call themselves socialists, but cannot accurately define the term.

The author of this article hopes there can be a national conversation about these important issues. That’s the usual thing people who write articles say these days. It sounds so thoughtful and reasonable like hope and change. However, I don’t think a real conversation is possible until everyone knows what the words they’re using mean. DUH!!

My takeaway from this article is that Millennials are less educated than they should be. Why call yourself a socialist while favoring capitalist policies. Why don’t Millennials like the word capitalist since it describes many of their preferences? That seems odd to me. Maybe it’s because of what they’ve heard since birth in and out of the classroom? Hollywood and the public education system has done a “good” job of getting these kids to believe that capitalism is bad, but they haven’t done as well convincing them that liberal policies (big government) is good. Reality is getting in the way of that.
