The Nation’s Most Courageous Republican
Exclusive: Larry Klayman praises House candidate who went toe-to-toe with Islamists
I have been a lawyer and public-interest advocate in Washington, D.C., for 35 years and can tell you that there is not one congressman or senator currently serving in Congress who has the patriotic guts of Joe Kaufman. Joe is running for the U.S. House seat of the ultra-leftist and sleazy Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in South Florida’s 23rd Congressional District.
When I first met Joe, in 2003 while I was running for the U.S. Senate in Florida, he volunteered to help my campaign. After it ended, Joe worked for me as an expert on lawsuits such as the one that challenged the building of a radical Islamic mosque in the Ft. Lauderdale area. From personal experience, I can attest to Joe’s courage.( Read more...Collapse )http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/the-nations-most-courageous-republican/

Thoughts about this week's elections?
|Friday, April 2nd, 2010|
Of all the reasons to post...
I know there are many things in my life that I could post about, but I'm in a pissy mood after reading one too many news stories with bleeding hearts...
This time, someone commented on a story on NBC. The story: illegal immigrant population in CA drops for the first time since 1965.
Comment #1 (paraphrased), "It's so sad, we're losing diversity."
Comment #2 (paraphrased), "...we stole California from Mexico..."
Alright. That's enough damn it.
Sorry guys, but the war fought for California, Mexico lost. That means the USA keeps California. "To the victor go the spoils..." Deal with it. Don't give me, "We stole it.." No, WE didn't do SHIT. WE weren't even part of the human race at the time. WE were random protein bits and unconsumed food and minerals floating in, on, and under the ground. Our forefathers won a war and here WE are today.
Second, don't make me puke with your diversity crap. You want to assist in “diversity”? Ok. How about you try to sneak people into China. I think people that complain about us protecting the border here and whining about the deportation process should take a look at how the ChiComs deal with people that break their national laws and sneak in. And you thought water boarding was harsh...
Although, you really need to hand it to Obama. He's just taken what could be, perhaps, the biggest step ever to stem the tide of illegal immigration. The Healthcare (Obamacare) bill. If ever a law has been passed that would make someone think twice about crossing a border, it HAS to be a law in which Nancy Pelosi and her flunkeys decide how your medical care is rationed. Medical Care, Post Office style. Fuckin' sign me up baby. I love me some Post Office, this ought to be AWESOME! Maybe I can buy a stamp that gives me one emergency room visit, with only 8 hours of wait time outside to treat me for major motor vehicle accident injuries!? WHOOOOHOOOOOO!
The flow of people should slow down now that Obamacare has passed against the will of the people. We're on course to be bankrupt in a few years. Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says Obama/Pelosi/Reid will double our national debt to $20 TRILLION BY 2020. Amazing. In 10 years those three useful idiots will rack up as much debt as EVERY PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY, COMBINED. Do you realize that's just shy of $1 of debt for every $1 of Gross Domestic Product??? Do you even know what GDP is? No? Way to go Teacher's Associations of America! Dumbing-down the youth for decades, and still going strong!
Folks, this HAS to stop. We're on course not only for default on all of our bonds (NO ONE OR COUNTRY CAN AFFORD THIS, PERIOD) and disastrous economic woes, but WAR. Civil or otherwise. Castro has just said that it's a miracle that this WONDERFUL bill has been signed into law?!?! I shit you not, go look it up. Cuba backs Obama. WOW.
Exactly what do you think is going to happen when my first child is 10 years old and we start defaulting on our bonds (if it even takes that long)?? It means NO investment in the USA because we can't pay our bills, or loans. Interest rates will be too high to borrow money, and those here that have money will take it ELSEWHERE to invest where the government doesn't tax your profits to death (which as any 1st week Economics 1A student knows: over taxation + risk = NO INVESTMENT).
Prices will go up ACROSS the board. Bread, $20 a loaf. McDonalds becomes a luxury dining experience. ALL IT TAKES IS A LOWERING OF OUR BOND RATING BY MOODY'S TO KICK THIS OFF. By the way, Moody’s warned that it's EXACTLY what they're going to do, even before this OBAMANATION ;) of a bill was passed by the house and signed into law (again, against the will of over 65% of the nation).
So who's better at predicting a budget crisis, the left or the right? October 4th, 2000, Presidential debate, Bush: "The revenues exceed the expenses in Social Security till the year 2015". Al Gore said we'd be flush to 2055 because we are just that special and the congress NEVER overspends... Guess that moron Bush... wait, ummmmm, lemme do some math... 2010 is when we're going to hit the tipping point... wait, that, that can't be right, 2010 seems to be closer to 2015 than 2055. Hmm. Al Gore was... *gasp* wrong about something? Bush was... Correct? OH NO!
What amazes me is that Al Gore comes off as a moderate Democrat when I read the debate transcript from 2000, compared to Obama. He wanted to PAY DOWN THE DEBT, Obama and flunkeys voted to raise the debt to $12 trillion this year. Wow, Al Gore a MODERATE Democrat... who'd a thunk it.
Now, I mentioned war, and with good cause- You don't think China will be happy just saying, "You can't pay on your bonds? Don't worry about it, we'll hit you up next week." I call BS. They're GOING to want to collect on their LEGAL debt bonds we sold them. They'll start by seizing U.S. assets inside their borders, and then attack Taiwan, or march into South Korea with the North Korean Army. Perhaps China will forgive some bond payments in trade for us folding on our defense pact(s) while they STEAL
some land from countries we swore to help defend. I don't suppose those idiots that say we stole California will have the stones to fly to Korea, or Taiwan and start shouting for all to hear, "YOU STOLE TAIWAN!" I predict if any of those brave souls do that, the sniper round that blows their chest inside-out is fired in about 10-seconds flat.
You liberals that think you're BRAVE for your "community organizing", you're not. You face NO oppression in this country. You won't be arrested for your opinion, beaten for your signs insulting political figures, raped/killed and made an example of, your family targeted for death/torture, etc., etc. The worst that happens is you're scooped up off of a public intersection that you were sitting in to disrupt traffic, booked (maybe), and released in hours. You're treated if you get a minor scrape in the process, and it's documented just so you can't sue later. You're not brave, you're not showing courage. You know NOTHING will happen to you. You got a bruise, or a scratch, or even pepper sprayed... AWWWW you poor thing. I'm sure Nelson Mandela will insist on candlelight vigils for you brave souls spending an hour or two in a holding tank. I'm sure he can identify with your oh so harsh struggle against the man
... Your struggle with… oh yeah, you're fighting against freedom and the right of self-determination in order to establish a nanny-state. Go on with your bad self.
Your false bravery is an insult to every person that actually risks life, limb, and family to voice opinions contrary to the actually oppressive powers that be in the world, past, present, and future. You don't do civil rights protesters of the 60's proud by doing something you know is safe, legal, and protected. Sorry, no points earned, kids.
I also mentioned civil war... You don't think there will be riots when bread reaches $10 per loaf? How about gas at $10-$20 per gallon? You don't think eventually the guy who was elected President, the man-child that was mentored by terrorists in college that still wish they had bigger bombs to plant "back in the day", you don't think he's going to send out armed, brave, Army personnel to stop the riots? It'll be the brave sons and daughters serving in the military against brave citizens (perhaps their own parents) fed up with a tyrant and cronies in the White House, when they march on D.C. Don't you think that raises the odds of even just one exchange of small arms fire, American vs. American? The best thing to do is NOT create the situation in the first place.
If you threaten a person's right to self-determination, you corner that person and their family like frightened animals, it WILL trigger a defensive response, count on it. People will defend themselves and their families with all deliberate force they deem necessary to ensure their survival. That's by no means a threat of violence, it is my opinion of human nature and my prediction of a worst case scenario of what will happen if Democrats (and sometimes Republicans) continue to use our founding documents as toilet paper.
The intellectual giant in the Oval Office just opened up oil drilling off the coast. WELL HELLS BELLS FRIENDS... Conservatives have been almost BEGGING to open up drilling for TEN YEARS, at least! If congress had let Bush drill, we'd ALREDAY BE GETTING SOME RELIEF. But no. "Those EVIL Republicans can't drill off-shore, it's not GREEEEEEEEN. It's not a WIND FARM."
NEWS FLASH, MY MALIBU, AND YOUR FUCKING PRIUS DOESN'T RUN ON WIND! And if we DO plug in all our cars from now on, do you plan to make more energy for the electrical power grid via nuclear, or oil/coal burning plants? If you don't, we'll crash the grid recharging our cars. Are we importing MORE oil to run those plants? One way or the other we need MORE JUICE, no matter what your vehicle's primary propulsion system is. Your turbines and solar-cells just don't cut it right now. SO, how about we drill for our HUGE reserves sitting and waiting for us, WHILE we pursue alternative fuels, ok smart-guy?
And, just to get you really riled up my liberal friends, exactly how do you feel knowing Obama just agreed with Bush almost a decade after he first suggested more drilling? Bush is stupid, that's why Obama is 10 years behind the times in coming to the SAME CONCLUSION Bush reached. Perhaps Harry Reid can ask Obama to explain how he came to this decision, using some of that negro dialect
, as he put it.
That's another thing, on a tangent (this whole diatribe is a string of tangents), why did Obama grab his ankles for a white senator, again? I mean really, I don't care if it was my own father, if someone were to say the crap about me that Harry Reid said, referring to Obama not speaking with a "negro dialect", he'd be out on his ass bouncing on the street before he knew he'd been kicked in the butt. But no, Obama needs his handler, oops I mean the majority leader. He needs him more than he needs to be a man, or an African-American. Obama sold out himself, and Black America as a whole for his ideological agenda. Reid could've thrown the words "house negro" in there, and Obama still wouldn't have acted like a man. For the record, I bet he WAS thinking that, he simply didn't say it.
Mr. President, when MLK Jr. had a dream, he was NOT thinking of you.
Perhaps that last paragraph illustrates what makes him so dangerous. He clearly has a price, he can be bought. When a man will sell his own people out, sell his own dignity along with that of his wife and children, an entire race’s dignity, in order to maintain political power, you have a dangerous man that cares only about the agenda and not the human-beings he’s supposed to serve and put above himself.
The future is now. Vote every last Democrat son of a bitch out of office up for election in November, and recall the rest. Repeal, repeal, repeal.

My $.02 on Palin/Letterman
I think it's much ado about nothing. It was a lame joke made by a lame late-night host who hasn't been funny in 20 years. All the talk about "raping my 14-year-old daughter" is way overblown. They said much worse things about Bush, and he just shrugged it off and didn't dignify it with a response.
Some of us are starting to act like the butthurt liberals who bitched and whined for the 8 years Bush was in office. We're better than that.

Tell Diane Feinstein to leave her claws off the 2nd Ammendment
Diane Feinstein thinks that crime in Mexico is the result of Californians having the right to purchase guns.
Call Feinstein and tell her not to infringe on our second ammendment rights
for people in ANOTHER COUNTRY.
Our politicians are supposed to protect OUR RIGHTS, not destroy them for someone else.
-No clipping OUR rights for Mexico's problems.
- Enforce our illegal immigration laws and PUT UP THE FENCE on the border.

So It Begins...
With the 2008 election come and gone, now is the time for me to start my path into politics. The journal is being created with a two-fold purpose in mind.
First, to document the rise into politics from someone who does not have the "wealth" of experience in the political realm. I plan on documenting here my complete ups and downs as I try to become a State Representative for Colorado. It's going to be an interesting trip, whether successful or not. I can only hope that readers can empathize and enjoy my own account of this adventure.
Secondly, to get out the word. The internet today is a viable force to be reckoned with, one that young people like you and I use without even a second thought. Harnessing our cooperation and determination, we can together work for a better and stronger America.
I don't have a speech writer, so everything I write here is purely off the cuff. Maybe later, should success come this way, I can have someone who knows what to write for me to say. For now, however, I'll use the plebian approach and simply write my thoughts, my goals, my... well, everything.
Theodore Roosevelt, a great President and one of my role models, said it beautifully many years ago. I will end this on his quote:
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

huge and long and x-posted all over the place ...
because it is that important. read it, and repost it all over. this needs to be known. an important voice has emerged.
Given the uproar about the simple question asked you by Joe the plumber, and the persecution that has been heaped on him because he dared to question you, I find myself motivated to say a few things to you myself. While Joe aspires to start a business someday, I already have started not one, but 4 businesses. But first, let me introduce myself. You can call me "Cory the well driller". I am a 54 year old high school graduate. I didn't go to college like you, I was too ready to go "conquer the world" when I finished high school. 25 years ago at age 29, I started my own water well drilling business at a time when the economy here in East Texas was in a tailspin from the crash of the early 80's oil boom. I didn't get any help from the government, nor did I look for any. I borrowed what I could from my sister, my uncle, and even the pawn shop and managed to scrape together a homemade drill rig and a few tools to do my first job. My businesses did not start as a result of privilege. They are the result of my personal drive, personal ambition, self discipline, self reliance, and a determination to treat my customers fairly. From the very start my business provided one other (than myself) East Texan a full time job. I couldn't afford a backhoe the first few years (something every well drilling business had), so I and my helper had to dig the mud pits that are necessary for each and every job with hand shovels. I had to use my 10 year old, 1/2 ton pickup truck for my water tank truck (normally a job for at least a 2 ton truck).
I spent the next 10 years developing the reputation for being the most competent and most honest water well driller in East Texas. 2 years along the way, I hired another full time employee for the drilling business so that we could provide full time water well pump service as well as the well drilling. Also, 3 years along the path, I bought a water well screen service machine from a friend, starting business # 2. 5 years later I made a business loan for $100,000.00 to build a new, higher production, computer controlled screen service machine. I had designed the machine myself, and it didn't work out for 3 years so I had to make the loan payments without the benefit of any added income from the new machine. No government program was there to help me with the payments, or to help me sleep at night as I lay awake wondering how I would solve my machine problems or pay my bills. Finally, after 3 years, I got the screen machine working properly, and that provided another full time job for an East Texan in the screen service business.
2 years after that, I made another business loan, this time for $250,000.00, to buy another used drilling rig and all the support equipment needed to run another, larger, drill rig. This provided another 2 full time jobs for East Texans. Again, I spent a couple of years not knowing if I had made a smart move, or a move that would bankrupt me. For the third time in 13 years, I had placed everything I owned on the line, risking everything, in order to build a business.
A couple of years into this, I came up with a bright idea for a new kind of mud pump, a fundamentally necessary pump used on water well drill rigs. I spent my entire life savings to date (just $30,000.00), building a prototype of the pump and took it to the national water well convention to show it off. Customers immediately started coming out of the woodworks to buy the pumps, but there was a problem. I had depleted my assets making the prototype, and nobody would make me a business loan to start production of the new pumps. With several deposits for pump orders in hand, and nowhere to go, I finally started applying for as many credit card as I could find and took cash withdrawals on these cards to the tune of over $150,000.00 (including modest loans from my dear sister and brother), to get this 3rd business going.
Yes, once again, I had everything hanging over the line in an effort to start another business. I had never manufactured anything, and I had to design and bring into production a complex hydraulic machine from an untested prototype to a reliable production model (in six months). How many nights I lay awake wondering if I had just made the paramount mistake of my life I cannot tell you, but there were plenty. I managed to get the pumps into production, which immediately created another 2 full time jobs in East Texas. Some of the models in the first year suffered from quality issues due to the poor workmanship of one of my key suppliers, so I and an employee (another East Texan employed) had to drive across the country to repair customers' pumps, practically from coast to coast. I stood behind the product, and made payments to all the credit cards that had financed me (and my brother and sister). I spent the next 5 years improving and refining the product, building a reputation for the pump and the company, working to get the pump into drill rig manufacturers' product lines, and paying back credit cards. During all this time I continued to manage a growing water well business that was now operating 3 drill rig crews, and 2 well service crews. Also, the screen service business continued to grow. No government programs were there to help me, Mr. Obama, but that's ok, I didn't expect any, nor did I want any. I was too busy fighting to make success happen to sit around waiting for the government to help me.
Now, we have been manufacturing the mud pumps for 7 years, my combined businesses employ 32 full time employees, and distribute $5,000,000.00 annually through the local economy. Now, just 4 months ago I borrowed $1,254,000.00, purchasing computer controlled machining equipment to start my 4th business, a production machine shop. The machine shop will serve the mud pump company so that we can better manufacture our pumps that are being shipped worldwide. Of course, the machine shop will also do work for outside companies as well. This has already produced 2 more full time jobs, and 2 more should develop out of it in the next few months. This should work out, but if it doesn't it will be because you, and the other professional politicians like yourself, will have destroyed our countrys' (and the world) economy with your meddling with mortgage loan programs through your liberal manipulation and intimidation of loaning institutions to make sure that unqualified borrowers could get mortgages. You see, at the very time when I couldn't get a business loan to get my mud pumps into production, you were working with Acorn and the Community Reinvestment Act programs to make sure that unqualified borrowers could buy homes with no down payment, and even no credit or worse yet, bad credit. Even the infamous, liberal, Ninja loans (No Income, No Job or Assets). While these unqualified borrowers were enjoying unrealistically low interest rates, I was paying 22% to 24% interest on the credit cards that I had used to provide me the funds for the mud pump business that has created jobs for more East Texans. It's funny, because after 25 years of turning almost every dime of extra money back into my businesses to grow them, it has been only in the last two years that I have finally made enough money to be able to put a little away for retirement, and now the value of that has dropped 40% because of the policies you and your ilk have perpetrated on our country.
You see, Mr. Obama, I'm the guy you intend to raise taxes on. I'm the guy who has spent 25 years toiling and sweating, fretting and fighting, stressing and risking, to build a business and get ahead. I'm the guy who has been on the very edge of bankruptcy more than a dozen times over the last 25 years, and all the while creating more and more jobs for East Texans who didn't want to take a risk, and would not demand from themselves what I have demanded from myself. I'm the guy you characterize as "the Americans who can afford it the most" that you believe should be taxed more to provide income redistribution "to spread the wealth" to those who have never toiled, sweated, fretted, fought, stressed, or risked anything. You want to characterize me as someone who has enjoyed a life of privilege and who needs to pay a higher percentage of my income than those who have bought into your entitlement culture. I resent you, Mr. Obama, as I resent all who want to use class warfare as a tool to advance their political career. What's worse, each year more Americans buy into your liberal entitlement culture, and turn to the government for their hope of a better life instead of themselves. Liberals are succeeding through more than 40 years of collaborative effort between the predominant liberal media, and liberal indoctrination programs in the public school systems across our land.
What is so terribly sad about this is this. America was made great by people who embraced the one-time American culture of self reliance, self motivation, self determination, self discipline, personal betterment, hard work, risk taking. A culture built around the concept that success was in reach of every able bodied American who would strive for it. Each year that less Americans embrace that culture, we all descend together. We descend down the socialist path that has brought country after country ultimately to bitter and unremarkable states. If you and your liberal comrades in the media and school systems would spend half as much effort cultivating a culture of can-do across America as you do cultivating your entitlement culture, we could see Americans at large embracing the conviction that they can elevate themselves through personal betterment, personal achievement, and self reliance. You see, when people embrace such ideals, they act on them. When people act on such ideals, they succeed. All of America could find herself elevating instead of deteriorating. But that would eliminate the need for liberal politicians, wouldn't it, Mr. Obama? The country would not need you if the country was convinced that problem solving was best left with individuals instead of the government. You and all your liberal comrades have got a vested interested in creating a dependent class in our country. It is the very business of liberals to create an ever expanding dependence on government. What's remarkable is that you, who have never produced a job in your life, are going to tax me to take more of my money and give it to people who wouldn't need my money if they would get off their entitlement mentality asses and apply themselves at work, demand more from themselves, and quit looking to liberal politicians to raise their station in life.
You see, I know because I've had them work for me before. Hundreds of them over these 25 years. People who simply will not show up to work on time. People who just will not work 5 days in a week, much less, 6 days. People always looking for a way to put less effort out. People who actually tell me that they would do more if I just would first pay them more. People who take off work to sit in government offices to apply to get free government handouts (gee, I wonder how things would have turned out for them if they had spent that time earning money and pleasing their employer?). You see, all of this comes from your entitlement mentality culture.
Oh, I know you will say I am uncompassionate. Sorry, Mr. Obama, wrong again. You see, I've seen what the average percentage of your income has been given to charities over the years of 2000 to 2004 (ignoring the years you started running for office - can you pronounce "politically motivated"), you averaged less than 1% annually. And your running mate, Joe Biden, averaged less than 1/4 of 1% of his annual income in charitable contributions over the last 10 years. Like so many liberals, the two of you want to give to the needy, just as long as it is someone else's money you are giving to them. I won't say what I have given to charities over the last 25 years, but the percentage is several times more than you and Joe Biden. combined (don't you just hate google?). Tell me again how you feel my pain.
In short, Mr. Obama, your political philosophies represent everything that is wrong with our country. You represent the culture of government dependence instead of self reliance; Entitlement mentality instead of personal achievement; Penalization of the successful to reward the unmotivated; Political correctness instead of open mindedness and open debate. If you are successful, you may preside over the final transformation of America from being the greatest and most self-reliant culture on earth, to just another country of whiners and wimps, who sit around looking to the government to solve their problems. Like all of western Europe. All countries on the decline. All countries that, because of liberal socialistic mentalities, have a little less to offer mankind every year.
God help us...
just a ordinary, extraordinary American, the way a lot of Americans used to be.
P.S. Yes, Mr. Obama, I am a real American... http://www.cmillerdrilling.com
