A perfect example of liberal media bias

If you look at the screen capture above, you will see a perfect example of the liberal media bias that is so incredibly pervasive and disgusting here in Los Angeles County.

The supposed "news" website Burbank n' Beyond does all types of coverage of fuzzy warm stories... high school football scores, and "Press Release" journalism. A wonderful gift of free publicity for official Democratic apparatchiks Congressman Adam Schiff and Assemblyman Mike Gatto.

No opposing opinions or viewpoints will be allowed!

If you go to their website and search for my name... like I did yesterday... you will find no hits.

No results. Nothing.

The Republican Nominee for Congress is invisible and does not exist.

One week before a National Election, and there will be no mention of opposing forces to the Politburo.

Nothing to see here, folks!

The media here in the Los Angeles area is so incredibly perverted and twisted when it comes to politics, that any random pedestrian who got hit by a car would get more coverage in the media than a Republican running for Congress in a liberal-dominated county.

I only want 3 things from Barack Obama....

I only want 3 things from Barack Obama....

1) I want him defeated in the election by a large popular vote and electoral count. Something beyond the possible scope of Democratic voter fraud.

2) I want him out of the White House by January 20th without doing all types of petty, nasty, destructive things on his way out of town.

3) I never want to hear about him again.

My ballot selections for November 6th


I have been pretty clear on my blog about not being a big fan of Mitt Romney. He was my last possible choice in the Republican primaries and I think he is the most politically moderate and Big Government Republican we could run in this election.

Having said that, I'll be voting for Romney for 3 reasons: Israel, Iran and The Supreme Court. Barack Obama has clearly shown through his actions that he can't be trusted with leading America when it comes to these three crucial issues.

Hopefully, Romney will surprise me and become a great leader, but due to his Big Government track record, I won't hold my breath.

I'm actually happy to support a fellow Wisconsin native for Vice President. Paul Ryan has a good Conservative soul, and his heart is in the right place, but a decade in Washington has co-opted him to the dark side and he has cast some Big Government votes that I find horrific. Hopefully, he will also grow into his role and do an excellent job.


I said in a previous blog post that I didn't support Elizabeth Emken in 2012. I still don't. I think she is a Big Government RINO. But when the option is between her or Feinstein, I suppose it doesn't hurt to throw her a sympathy vote. She is going to get killed by Feinstein...maybe 70-30... because most voters don't know who Emken is and can't identify what goals she is trying to accomplish.


It goes without saying that I'll be voting for myself to become the next Congressman from this area. My debate with Adam Schiff exposed him as a Big Government liberal who supports abortion, gay marriage, illegal immigration and trillions in deficit spending. I can't understand why anyone would vote for him. But I'm sure the voters of the 28th District have their own opinions....


Wow. Do I ever hate voting for a liberal! But my selection in this race is the lesser (I hope!) of two evils. The other choice, Assembly Member Betsy Butler, has been bombarding voters with mailers telling everyone that she is some type of spiritual combination of Che Guevara and Cesar Chavez. Butler sent me over the edge when she mailed me this nutty flier. I mean...for God's sake...look at that photo! Who is she trying to be ? Sacajawea or Jesus of Nazareth? I can't stand Butler. I hope Bloom will be less destructive...but somehow, I doubt it.


I originally supported Carmen "Nuch" Trutanich in this election, and I'd be supporting him again here if his campaign manager hadn't bungled the operation so badly. Loyalty is important to me and I don't throw my friends under the bus just because they said or did something that wasn't popular. However, the choice here is between Jackson and Jackie Lacey. Republican groups seem to like Jackson better. I do not know much about Jackson, but I am trusting the judgement of other people who know him better than I do.


30 - NO  -- I don't like any wording of "temporary" with regard to taxes. The State usually finds a way to spend whatever it desires. And it has never been "about the kids" or education.

31 - NO -- Giving more local control over tax funds to people like The Dark Lord and The Cat Whisperer? No thanks.

32 - YES -- Smash the union right to strip payroll money for their slush funds? Ok. I like that.

33 - NO -- It sounds like a good idea, but it is actually cleverly written nonsense from the insurance companies so that they can charge you more. Education measures are never about the kids. And Business measures are never about saving you money.

34 - NO -- Death Penalty Repeal? Nope. No thanks. And our degenerate Mayor Villaraigosa signed the rebuttal to the argument against 34. Tells me all I need to know right there.

35 - NO -- This is an overwhelmingly liberal idea to stop the evil of human trafficking, but it goes too far by including people who are only tangentially related to the crime. Nice idea, but with no accountability or oversight, we can do without it.

36 - NO -- The "Three Strikes" law might be harsh and occasionally be a severe punishment for a minor crime, but it has also kept crime rates very low...even in a bad economy. I see no reason to change or adapt it.

37 - NO -- Food safety. Yeah. It's never about food safety. Liberal meddling and lawsuit hunting.

38 - NO -- It's never about the kids. We spend billions on schools here and get crappy results.

39 - NO -- "Green Energy" proposals do two things. They kill jobs and send businesses fleeing.

My views on: Obamacare

I want to make very clear to potential voters what my views are about Obamacare.

If elected to Congress on November 6th, I will do everything within my power to destroy Obamacare, because the concept is both illegal and immoral.

I believe in the sanctity of the Tenth Amendment, which limits Federal power over the States. I believe the government routinely violates our Constitution and our rights by attempting to do far too much in order to placate restless citizens.

Giving the Government the right to seize the entire health care industry and to dictate terms and prices and procedures is an act of lunacy that was only made possible through Democratic bribery and extortion. Senators Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana accepted bribes offered by fellow legislators to change their votes and pass the Obamacare bill. I mentioned in my debate with Adam Schiff that some of these people need to see the inside of a jail cell if our government is ever going to function correctly.

If Obamacare was so wonderful, why did 800 different organizations that support Obama need a waiver from it? Allowing the law to apply to some, but not to others is a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which says that laws must equally apply to all citizens. Therefore, Obamacare violates our Constitution and is illegal.

Obama, under the guise of "providing health services" recently dictated to Catholic hospitals that they had to provide abortion drugs to patients. This violates several tenets of the Catholic faith and is something they can never do. Eventually Obama backed off of this demand when several Catholic institutions, including the University of Notre Dame, started suing his Administration. At the same time Obama was trampling on the religious freedom of Catholics, he was completely exempting his precious buddies the Muslims from participating in Obamacare, because health insurance is a form of gambling, which is not allowed in Islam. Therefore, because Obama will use force against one religious faith while completely exempting another faith from his wrath, Obamacare is immoral.

I will finish my argument today with one very specific statement concerning my opposition to Obamacare:

Giving the Government more control over your health care is giving the Government more control over you.

Think about that.

I often criticize Obama by calling him "Caesar" or "Pharaoh" because of his fondness for breaking our laws and violating our Constitution and its protections from tyranny.

But as bad as Obama is... what if someone comes along that is worse?

What if 20 years from now we have a leader who makes Obama look like a meter maid?

What if this new, crazed leader issues a decree that all citizens who donated financially to the political opposition in the past will now no longer receive medical treatment?

This is why you don't leave the health care industry under government control. You cannot afford to mistakenly assume that all future leaders will be kind-natured angels.

History has proven repeatedly that this is not the case.

My views on: Americas Biggest Threat

The biggest threat right now to America isn't Barack Obama. And it isn't the Russians, the Chinese , or the Muslims, either.

The single biggest threat to America right now....beyond any foreign army or terrorist, is the collapse of our currency caused by the awful economic policies of our government. Our leaders have, in effect, created a "Ponzi Scheme" Government.

Our national debt is impossible to pay off. Even if the government seized every penny of currency in the world, there still wouldn't be enough money to pay it off. But the national debt is a bit misleading, because a huge chunk of it is money we owe to ourselves. 

How do you pay yourself back? 

When you have been spending money you don't have, and cranking up the printing presses to produce fiat backed up by nothing but jeopardize your entire economy and your countries financial future. Usually this leads to a devaluation of your currency and difficult economic times. That additional money gets into the flow of commerce and causes prices to rise.

It isn't so much the cost of gasoline that is going up, as it is the value of a dollar that is going down.

Back when we were on a gold or silver standard, our money had real value.... But now with these irresponsible economic policies, our money and our value are disappearing before our very eyes.

The problem all started in 1971 when President Richard Nixon took our country off the Gold Standard. Prior to 1971, one U.S. dollar was the equivalent of $1 of gold held in the reserves of the United States Treasury...much of it at Fort Knox, Kentucky. 

Now, we have what is known as a "fiat currency" that holds value only because our government says it does. The basic problem with this is that investors can lose faith in a government and cause the value of their money to collapse. This often happens with stunning speed.

Quantitative Easing is a recipe for financial collapse and our government needs to stop doing it. It is a reckless policy that cheats people out of value across the globe.

Barack Obama is the biggest thief in human history. His policies have eroded so much value from our money, that the hundreds of millions of Americans -- and indeed, the billions of the people around the world who depend on US currency for their medium of exchange -- have lost trillions of dollars of wealth just based on the decline of our moneys value.

A writer on the internet pointed out the other day that our government will never go broke. They can simply print up more money, he said. That's true, but that printing will destroy the value of all the dollars currently in existence. Someday soon you might be paying $25 for an In 'N Out cheeseburger. Or $100 for a Dominos pizza.

Sure, you will make more money than ever, but your pay most likely won't keep up with the staggering inflation that "Quantitative Easing" will likely produce. We have all heard stories of the Weimar Republic in Germany, where people had to bring a wheelbarrow full of money to the store to purchase a loaf of bread.

Things are not that bad here in America...yet.

But we are headed in that direction.

We need to elect leaders who understand economics and the dangers of a money-printing policy that eventually harms everyone.

Romney looking, acting, and sounding Presidential

This video is big trouble for the Obama campaign.

This is Mitt Romney looking, acting, and sounding Presidential.

Romney is starting to feel it. He knows he is closing in on the White House.

Florida is gone for Obama, so is North Carolina.

Obama is desperately trying to hang on in Ohio, Nevada, Iowa and Wisconsin.

Romney might win them all.

My views on : Libya

Due to the fact that I probably will not get to debate Adam Schiff again before the Nov. 6th election, I am going to release a series of opinion papers to help communicate my views to the voters of the 28th Congressional District. This series, entitled "My views on..." will continue until the election and cover a very wide and diverse range of subjects. 



When discussing Libya with the voters, there are several different areas that need to be discussed. Most recently, the discussions concerning Libya have been primarily focusing on the death of our Ambassador and his staff.

While the deaths of the Ambassador and his staff were heinous and inexcusable, it remains a sad commentary on the state of diplomacy that when you have diplomats serving in a troubled area where revolutions or wars are going on, that they will constantly remain in potential danger and can consistently be viewed as potential targets by opposing forces in that area.

Conservatives on Facebook and Twitter are eager to bash Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and do some finger-pointing and scandal-accusing due to these tragic deaths. I myself, on the other hand, am not so quick to blame anyone in particular. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have to oversee hundreds of Embassies around the world, and it is impossible for any one human to keep track of them all simultaneously. This is why there is a chain of command, and certain duties are delegated to various staff members further on down the line.

Now, it may be that the staff there in Libya requested additional security. Maybe they didn't. Maybe they misjudged or underestimated the aggression by local forces towards their compound. It is difficult to say what exactly happened there without having more facts, but we do know the outcome of that nights events. And it wasn't good for America.

However, most Americans would be surprised to learn that the Muslims in Libya have been causing trouble for America for over 200 years!

Yes, you read that right. This is where the Ron Paul supporters go horribly awry when they believe that America causes all it's own problems by meddling in international affairs. We didn't have any military bases in anyones countries, yet the Muslims were gladly participating in open thievery against us, by committing pirate attacks on our commercial shipping.The Muslims in Libya attacked and seized their first American naval vessel in 1784 when our young country was only 8 years old!! 

The Barbary Pirates (as they were called then) not only robbed and stole from people, they attacked other nations and enslaved their populations. The Muslims in Libya were responsible for over 1 million Europeans being sold into slavery.

Thomas Jefferson tried to negotiate some type of peaceful passage for our commercial fleet, but ended up being threatened into paying extortion money by the Muslims. Jefferson eventually got sick of being extorted, and used Americas wealth to build the U.S. Navy and the Marine Corps.

Our American military eventually retaliated against the Muslims by bombarding Tripoli with cannonballs until the Muslims decided to stop attacking American ships.

To this day, the official Marine Corps song talks about "From the halls of the shores of Tripoli" because it was their first great victory over a foreign power.

So basically, Muslims in Libya have been causing us trouble for over 200 years, most of it due to the inherent immorality of their peculiar religion. But that is another subject for another day.

Another issue, as to whether or not we should have intervened militarily by bombing Libya in 2011, that is a separate question.

Peaceniks, hippies and Libertarians always hate war and don't want America involved militarily anywhere at anytime. Their position is ludicrous and denies the basic existence of evil in this world.

Moammar Ghaddafi was an evil man. Anyone who uses military force against their own civilian population usually is on the verge of losing power because they have lost their moral authority to lead.

Happy citizens don't try to kill their leaders.

I am not opposed to quick, short-term military interventions like this. When we as Americans help stop a mad dictator from killing his own people, it only increases our moral authority in this world by showing everyone else that we lead by example.

Our actions usually help destroy the last shred of dignity or legitimacy that a fallen leader will ever have.

Critics argue that we might have inadvertently helped the Muslim Brotherhood to seize control in Libya.

That might be a fact, but it also might be false. It is possible that fanatical Muslims would have gained power and control in Libya even without our help. Some of this is due to a very basic difference in the belief system and values that Muslims have compared to people in other parts of the world.

The problems in Libya are just one part of a bigger complex of issues across the Middle East.

Afghanistan, Iran,'s all the same thing, really.

It's all just part of the larger war against Muslims, just in different neighborhoods.

My debate answer on Abortion

I didn't get to finish my answer in the debate due to time limits, so I thought I would print my full response here on my blog.



Being that this is a debate sponsored by the League of Womens Voters, I had to be quite certain that the topic of abortion would come up. My answer to the question is this:

All human societies and cultures have basically been an unwritten contract between those who came before us -- our ancestors -- the people who are currently living -- us -- and the generations that will follow us. My opinion is that our ancestors did everything they possibly could to make sure that we got here safely and are able to live the exact lives that we are living right now.  Why would you want to break that contract with future generations and tell them that they have no right to exist?

Mike Huckabee gave a phenomenal speech at CPAC 2012 in which he explained that an unborn baby is not just a mass of cells. It has a unique DNA profile that has never existed before and will never exist again. That unborn child will not become a piece of broccoli or a giraffe or a basketball. It will become a human being.

My opinion is that are certain moral absolutes in this world, and abortion is one of those issues that is absolutely, morally wrong.

My position is that I am pro-life with no exemptions or exceptions being made. I know that certain moderate Republicans have more flexible stances on this issue, including exemptions in the cases of rape, incest or the life of the mother being endangered. I do not agree with these exemptions.

Now, Republicans, we simply want to overturn Roe vs. Wade and have this decision sent back to the State level.  There is no doubt that some states would still allow abortion.
So Democrats saying that the election of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will be the end of abortion is simply false.

Horrific sex-selective abortions might also lead to World War 3. China and India are both going to end up with a surplus of males who cannot find a mate or have a family. This situation will most likely cause riots and maybe even warfare as these countries struggle with this shameful legacy. 

Most of you know who Steve Jobs is. He was the founder of the worlds most valuable company, Apple Computers. He was an unwanted child who was adopted, not aborted.

And what a different world we live in because of that decision.

In 1961 a young teenager at the University of Hawaii was impregnated by a man from Kenya. If Adam Schiff and the Democrats had had their way with Roe vs. Wade 20 years earlier, Barack Obama might never have been born. And as much as I don't care for Obama or his policies, I would never deny him the right to exist.

I'm Pro-life. No exemptions.

If you are a political leader who won't protect life, ... then Liberty and the pursuit of happiness don't stand a chance.

The League of Women Voters Debate: The Aftermath

Last nights debate with Adam Schiff was a pleasant experience for me and there were many positives to be gained for my campaign for the 28th District Congressional seat. However, there were also a few setbacks as certain things didn't go exactly as I had planned.

Arriving at the venue a bit early, I was worried that the evening would be a complete bust as there were only about 15 people there. However, the crowd slowly trickled in and eventually ended up nearly filling the 100 seat City Council chambers in Burbank City Hall.

The crowd was unsettlingly partisan. I could tell most of the people there knew Schiff personally or were there to support him. However, it didn't affect the debate as most people didn't cheer or boo or make any comments whatsoever, except for some occasional outbursts of laughter at clever comments made by both of the candidates.

Before the debate started the League of Women Voters greeted us both and gave us a rundown on the technical details about timing and responses to the questions. Another gentleman came out of the TV room to discuss the cameras and their angles.

When Joan Hardie got on camera and started introducing the debate on live TV, I have to admit being slightly nervous. It was my first televised debate and I didn't want to screw up.

Adam Schiff started doing something that I found a bit odd and terribly unnerving. He was staring right into the TV cameras and addressing the audience at home and on the internet. There was a flat screen on either side of us, so it ended up that his image was looking right back at me. It was a little bit creepy and immediately made me think of that "Heavens Gate" cult in San Diego where people committed suicide waiting for the "mother ship" to take them away from Earth. I was thinking... there are people right in front of us...who is he talking to, the mother ship?

His staring into the camera was unnerving, so I tried not to look at him during the debate. I kept my focus on reading the faces in the crowd. I also tried not to grimace or smirk or react to his comments. But I did slap my forehead when he started talking about Global Warming.

I feel that overall, Adam Schiff did a little bit better than I did. He has ten years experience as an elected official, and it showed in his performance. He had smooth answers filled with technical details. I stumbled a little bit when the questions got real policy-wonkish with legislation that I had not read or was not even aware of.

I clearly crushed him on answers about gay marriage, Citizens United and Global Warming. He got the best of me on a few other questions...most of them dealing with questions involving specific pieces of legislation that I was not familiar with. Twice I had to say that I was unfamiliar with what they were asking about. I really hated that. (Come on people...this is a debate!! Where are the questions about Libya and taxes!)

I clearly had the more quotable moments of the night, and got the biggest laugh of all when I talked about the depth and strength of my opposition to gay marriage taking me inside West Hollywood City Council chambers and telling them my positions.

"That didn't go over very well.." I quietly added near the end of the question, as the crowd burst into loud laughter.

My friends who came to support me said I did well, but I couldn't help but feel that the overly specific questions had robbed me of the chance to give broader answers on larger issues. Hopefully the next time I get into a debate, I will face more open-ended questions than I did last night.

I can't wait to watch the replay and I'm curious to find out which quotes the reporters are going to use in their media coverage of the event.

It certainly wasn't boring. Schiff and I disagreed on almost every subject.

David Siegel goes "John Galt" on his employees

This is so good, I have to share it.

David Siegels recent email to all his employees.

We need more of this in America.


Subject: Message from David Siegel
Date:Mon, 08 Oct 2012 13:58:05 -0400 (EDT)
From: [David Siegel]
To: [All employees]
To All My Valued Employees,
As most of you know our company, Westgate Resorts, has continued to succeed in spite of a very dismal economy. There is no question that the economy has changed for the worse and we have not seen any improvement over the past four years. In spite of all of the challenges we have faced, the good news is this: The economy doesn't currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration. Of course, as your employer, I can't tell you whom to vote for, and I certainly wouldn't interfere with your right to vote for whomever you choose. In fact, I encourage you to vote for whomever you think will serve your interests the best.
However, let me share a few facts that might help you decide what is in your best interest.The current administration and members of the press have perpetuated an environment that casts employers against employees. They want you to believe that we live in a class system where the rich get richer, the poor get poorer. They label us the "1%" and imply that we are somehow immune to the challenges that face our country. This could not be further from the truth. Sure, you may have heard about the big home that I'm building. I'm sure many people think that I live a privileged life. However, what you don't see or hear is the true story behind any success that I have achieved.
I started this company over 42 years ago. At that time, I lived in a very modest home. I converted my garage into an office so I could put forth 100% effort into building a company, which by the way, would eventually employ you. We didn't eat in fancy restaurants or take expensive vacations because every dollar I made went back into this company. I drove an old used car, and often times, I stayed home on weekends, while my friends went out drinking and partying. In fact, I was married to my business - hard work, discipline, and sacrifice. Meanwhile, many of my friends got regular jobs. They worked 40 hours a week and made a nice income, and they spent every dime they earned. They drove flashy cars and lived in expensive homes and wore fancy designer clothes. My friends refinanced their mortgages and lived a life of luxury. I, however, did not. I put my time, my money, and my life into this business --with a vision that eventually, some day, I too, will be able to afford to buy whatever I wanted. Even to this day, every dime I earn goes back into this company. Over the past four years I have had to stop building my dream house, cut back on all of my expenses, and take my kids out of private schools simply to keep this company strong and to keep you employed. 
Just think about this - most of you arrive at work in the morning and leave that afternoon and the rest of your time is yours to do as you please. But not me- there is no "off" button for me. When you leave the office, you are done and you have a weekend all to yourself. I unfortunately do not have that freedom. I eat, live, and breathe this company every minute of the day, every day of the week. There is no rest. There is no weekend. There is no happy hour. I know many of you work hard and do a great job, but I'm the one who has to sign every check, pay every expense, and make sure that this company continues to succeed. Unfortunately, what most people see is the nice house and the lavish lifestyle. What the press certainly does not want you to see, is the true story of the hard work and sacrifices I've made.
Now, the economy is falling apart and people like me who made all the right decisions and invested in themselves are being forced to bail out all the people who didn't. The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed 42 years of my life for. Yes, business ownership has its benefits, but the price I've paid is steep and not without wounds. Unfortunately, the costs of running a business have gotten out of control, and let me tell you why: We are being taxed to death and the government thinks we don't pay enough. We pay state taxes, federal taxes, property taxes, sales and use taxes, payroll taxes, workers compensation taxes and unemployment taxes. I even have to hire an entire department to manage all these taxes. The question I have is this: Who is really stimulating the economy? Is it the Government that wants to take money from those who have earned it and give it to those who have not, or is it people like me who built a company out of his garage and directly employs over 7000 people and hosts over 3 million people per year with a great vacation?
Obviously, our present government believes that taking my money is the right economic stimulus for this country. The fact is, if I deducted 50 percent of your paycheck you'd quit and you wouldn't work here. I mean, why should you? Who wants to get rewarded only 50 percent of their hard work? Well, that's what happens to me.
Here is what most people don't understand and the press and our Government has chosen to ignore - to stimulate the economy you need to stimulate what runs the economy. Instead of raising my taxes and depositing that money into the Washington black-hole, let me spend it on growing the company, hire more employees, and generate substantial economic growth. My employees will enjoy the wealth of that tax cut in the form of promotions and better salaries. But that is not what our current Government wants you to believe. They want you to believe that it somehow makes sense to take more from those who create wealth and give it to those who do not, and somehow our economy will improve. They don't want you to know that the "1%", as they like to label us, pay more than 31% of all the taxes in this country. Thomas Jefferson, the author of our great Constitution, once said, "democracy" will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."

Business is at the heart of America and always has been. To restart it, you must stimulate business, not kill it. However, the power brokers in Washington believe redistributing wealth is the essential driver of the American economic engine. Nothing could be further from the truth and this is the type of change they want.
So where am I going with all this? It's quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company. Rather than grow this company I will be forced to cut back. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.
So, when you make your decision to vote, ask yourself, which candidate understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn't? Whose policies will endanger your job? Answer those questions and you should know who might be the one capable of protecting and saving your job. While the media wants to tell you to believe the "1 percenters" are bad, I'm telling you they are not. They create most of the jobs. If you lose your job, it won't be at the hands of the "1%"; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country.
You see, I can no longer support a system that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, so will your opportunities. If that happens, you can find me in the Caribbean sitting on the beach, under a palm tree, retired, and with no employees to worry about.
Signed, your boss,
David Siegel

Who's down with AIP? (Yeah, you know -- me!)

I was surprised yesterday to look into the Official Sample Ballot pamphlet book and see that not only was I endorsed by the Republican Party, but I had also been endorsed by the American Independent Party.

This was a stunner for me, because I don't remember talking to anyone from that organization, and I certainly didn't make any speech asking for it. But I will gladly accept their decision.

I guess they went and looked through my positions online or through older interviews or maybe they used other evidence and facts. However they did it, I like it. Endorsed by TWO political parties. Take that Adam Schiff!

I guess they decided Adam Schiffs ridiculous positions and votes just made him too much of a Statist and freedom-hater to get their support. Well done, AIP!

The League of Women Voters invites you.... a forum starring Phil Jennerjahn and quite possibly Congressman Adam Schiff!!

I can't believe it.

I might actually get to be in the same room as my opponent and debate ideas, plans and ideologies.

To say I am surprised would be putting it mildly.

The LWV says they have Schiff almost nailed down to committing to attend.

Good enough for me.

I expected him to spend the season ducking any real questions from voters.

Barack Obama and the "Age of Caesar"

I have often spoken of my fear of the coming of "The Age of Caesar".

This is a phrase of art describing a potential situation in the future in which morally depraved individuals will beg for -- and demand -- a tyrant. They will envision this tyrant as some type of hero, who will solve all their problems for them. These disturbed sheep-like citizens will ignore every violation of law that this leader commits. In fact, they will encourage and approve of his actions.

So the question has been presented. Are we modern-day Rome?

Is Barack Obama the next Caesar?

Well, luckily for all Americans, the answer -- at the moment -- is no.

Obama isn't a tyrannical dictator who controls every aspect of the lives of all he rules over.

At least, not yet he isn't.

However, he is headed in that direction.

Obama has issued more Executive Orders than all the other previous Presidents combined.
Basically, when it comes right down to it, he is ruling by decree.

He violates our Constitution daily, and simply goes around Congress whenever he finds it inconvenient to follow their laws.

Obama recently found cause to abuse his power to issue a bizarre decree about the situation in Yemen being an "unusual and extraordinary threat to our national security" declaring that our government has the right to seize the property of those people involved in a revolution in Yemen.

Yeah. Yemen.

You know, that country that is #83 on the list of the International Monetary Funds ranking of wealthiest nations in the world. The country that only abolished slavery in 1962. The country that can't keep its citizens supplied with fresh water.

Yeah. Them.

Obama sees them as a threat worth trampling on our Constitution.

The worst part of the "Age of Caesar" is that Obama is being aided by subversives from within.

When you watch this famous video of various mis-informed actors and entertainers pledging themselves to the almighty and benevolent Barack Obama, you start to understand how a "cult of personality" works... how someone like Hitler could come to power. There is no logical thought process going on here. There is no common sense or decency here. Nobody asking whether what is being done is legitimate, necessary, or actually legal.

It's all rainbows and unicorns with these people.

Not to mention the disturbing "For All" campaign being run by the Obama camp.

Both Adolph Hitler and Julius Caesar asked citizens to make a certain hand gesture to indicate their obedience to their totalitarian power.

It sickens me to see free Americans willingly do this.

Oh, but people say "It could never happen here..."

That's what the Germans said in the 1930s. But they voted for Hitler.
The Romans begged for Caesar.

What will it take for Americans to come to do just that? A collapse of multiple banks at one time? A disruption in the food-supply chain? A disruption in welfare check or food stamp distribution?

These people would vote for Hitler. These people will demand a Caesar.

There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever.
