Merry Christmas Gift from Nate and Congressman Kimble

with one comment

I apologize in the dust gathering on this blog.  I hope to be posting a lot more in the weeks ahead.   In the meantime, here’s a Christmas wish I whipped up with the help of Congressman Jack Kimble of California’s 54th District.

Come they told me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
A new-born king to see pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum

Come they told me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
A new-born king to see pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
to lay before the king pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum
so to honour him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
when we come

Little baby pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I stood beside him there pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I played my drum for him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I played my best for him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum
And he smiled at me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
me and my drum

Merry Christmas from the GOP
2 Years from now, you know we’ll see
See the election of Sarah Palin
See the day, when men of good means
Pay less tax, pay less tax again

2012, can it be
Everyone must be made aware
That the rich do more than their share
Do so much for their fellow man
Let’s cut all their taxes we can

I pray my wish will come true
For Boehner and McConnell too
We’ll see President Palin
See the day when men of good means
Pay less tax, Pay less tax again

2012, can it be

The Hot Men of the GOP

with 2 comments

First, I feel the need to address this first— I am not gay.  However, a couple of days ago some conservatives created a video that showed how much hotter GOP women were then their Democrat counterparts.  I thought this was awesome, but they got accused of my sogony, which I guess is a form of sexism. Anyway, wanting to sex the record straight, here is a video for the ladies out there showing that GOP men are equally hot.

Jack Kimble Cracks the Liberal Media

with one comment

[I mentioned before that I had joined the Jack Kimble campaign team.  Well, I’m pleased to announce that my hard work has paid off.  On Monday, Huffington Post’s lead story mentioned the good congressman.  Of course, I helped Mr. Kimble with his response.]

Jon Kyl Backs Republican 14th-Amendment Repeal Effort To Deny Citizenship To Immigrants’ Children

On Sunday, Sen. John Kyl (R-Ariz.) became the highest-ranking Republican to call for the repeal of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Appearing on CBS’ Face the Nation, Kyl said that he opposes allowing children of undocumented immigrants to be granted U.S. citizenship and wants Congress to hold hearings on the matter.
In doing so, the Senate’s no. 2 Republican didn’t place himself on the extreme wing of his party’s stance on immigration policy. Rather, he joined what is a growing movement that could very well shape the official policy planks of the GOP.
There are already a number of Republican officials who have preceded Kyl in calling for a reworking of the country’s citizenship laws. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has proposed the piece of legislation that would repeal the 14th Amendment; he is joined on the House side by Rep. Jack Kimble (R-Calif.).
An aide to Graham said that there had been no formal dates set for hearings or the bill’s introduction. “Senator Graham threw this out there on Fox News and it is something that he has been talking about in South Carolina as well,” the aide said. But there was growing talk and legislative activity around the concept.
In the House, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) has introduced the Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009, which would attempt to deny children of illegal immigrants U.S. citizenship through statute rather than a constitutional amendment (thereby lowering the vote threshold). He has 93 co-sponsors for that effort including Rep. Nathan Deal, the Georgia Republican who is in a runoff to be the party’s candidate for governor.
Senate candidate Rand Paul (R-Ky.) caused a stir shortly after winning his primary by saying he supported stripping citizenship from children of the undocumented. Former congressman and potential Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo — one of the staunchest anti-illegal immigration voices in national politics — has made repeal of the 14th Amendment a major cause.
There are many obscure Republican candidates who have made the same proposal, including Kevin Craig in Missouri and Gary McLeod (an obscure Christian conservative who is challenging — without much hope — Majority Whip James Clyburn).
But what may be most telling about the 14th amendment repeal campaign — the element that suggests it could be a major philosophical force within the Republican Party — are its roots. Well before it became en vogue for Republicans to advocate fundamental change in citizenship laws, the idea was being bandied about among the intellectual bastions of the conservative movement. The Heritage Foundation produced a report on the matter in 2006. And Fred Thompson — back when he was igniting a whisper campaign that he was the one Republican with the intellectual heft to run for president — was talking about repealing the 14th amendment back in 2007.
“I think that law was created at another time and place for valid reasons,” said the former U.S. senator from Tennessee. “It probably needs to be revisited.”

[Congressman Kimble’s response]
“Thank you for your coverage of this important issue. In California’s 54th District, we have a serious problem with immigration. On my father’s farm alone I know of at least 8 families of illegals. This is something that must be addressed for the good of our nation.

I applaud Senators Kyl and Graham for championing this battle in the Senate and my colleague Lamar Smith for proposing the Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009 in The House. Passing it will be one of my top priorities when we return from recess.

Unfortunately, repealing the 14th Amendment will take a very long time. If anybody remembers the battle for that silly ERA Amendment in the 1970s, you know I’m not exaggerating when I say this may take a decade to fix. That is why we must immediately close off our borders to any sexually active women of child bearing age. President Obama, if you are serious about stopping the problem of anchor babies than every sexually active woman is a ticking time bomb.

Repealing a Constitutional Amendment is no small task. It is a solemn task that our country has only undertaken once in its long history. However, the 14th Amendment is an antiquated reminder of the last half of the 19th Century–a time when there was very little immigration in this country to worry about. It is time for us to move forward.

Joining The Kimble Campaign

leave a comment »

I apologize that I have let this blog go a bit, but I’m happy to announce that the reason is I’ve joined Jack Kimble’s reelection campaign.  For readers of this blog, Jack Kimble is old hat.  He’s gone from being an interview segment to being somebody I would gladly donate a kidney or spleen to.  While Jack is not exactly on the political radar, I think we can use that to our advantage.  I see big things in his future including a 2016 Presidential run.  It’s exciting to get behind a candidate you believe in and for me Jack Kimble is that man.

The above Voices of the 54th District Mailer was created by me for the Kimble campaign and I’m really proud that I am getting involved.  At this time Jack isn’t even asking for donations.  He’s been getting plenty of financing from his father and various corporate lobbyists that support him.  I guess I’m kind of like the George Stefanapulous character in The War Room.   However, if you want to support Jack, you can follow him:

Keeping Christ in Independence Day

Friend of the blog Jack Kimble got in some trouble yesterday when he posted this seemingly innocuous post on twitter:

There’s a war going on between traditional America and those who would like to take Christ out of The 4th of July 3:36 PM Jul 3rd via web

Wow, was he attacked unmercifully by the secular humanist mob that tends to congregate at these social networking sites.  Long time enemy of this site Roger Ebert immediately retweeted the post.  Soon after, Shannyn Moore who is better known for her constant attacks on Sarah Palin and the good folks at BP also was retweeting Kimble’s comment.  What I want to know though, is Representative Kimble really off base?  I mean when he suggested that shrimp, oysters, and crawfish would be unharmed in the BP spill because they had shells he was simply wrong, but in this case I don’t think he is.

Think about you traditional 4th of July.   Maybe, you’ll be lucky and there will be a good patriotic movie about American soldiers blowing something up.  Then there are parades, barbecues, and fire works.  It seems like all the Christian imagery has been removed from the day.  As long as you are shooting the fireworks up in the air, would it be too much to ask to have fireworks shot off in the shape of Christ’s face.   According to Congressman Kimble, fireworks were first used to create loud noises and bright lights to get God’s attention.

According to Kimble, “When Marco Polo brought fireworks back from China to Italy, they were immediately turned over to the Papacy.  Gunpowder was very rare and fireworks were only used in religious services such as Christmas and Easter.   In fact, that is why to this day Papal guards do not carry guns.   It is also why firecrackers are sometimes called Roman Candles.”

So, if you consider myself or Congressman Kimble to be square so be it.  The point remains that the religious imagery has almost been completely stripped from July 4th.  Let’s bring it back to it’s original meaning before it’s too late.

Congressman Kimble Says, “Drill Baby Drill”

with 2 comments

I keep an eye on Congressman Kimble’s website to see what our blog’s favorite congressman is up to, but he rarely posts full transcripts of his speeches. Today, he spoke to the Pacific Coast Petroleum Institute and his speech was a rare demonstration of courage in a rough political climate for off shore oil drilling. I think his sentiments are something all conservatives can get behind.

My friends, this is not an easy time for any of us. A cataclysm of unspeakable proportions threatens the Gulf of Mexico. Thousands of barrels of oil have spilled into the Gulf and every five days an Exxon Valdez worth of oil spills into the Gulf. The damage is immeasurable and the full impact of this disaster will not be seen for years to come.

It is natural that at this time of crisis our prayers and our sympathies go out to the BP shareholders and board of directors. I see the suffering on the faces of my friends who lobby for them, in the stock ticker, and I want to help in anyway that I can. However, even as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives there is very little I can do to alleviate their suffering.

I am reminded of President Reagan after the Challenger disaster when he said, “Nothing ends here; our hopes and our journeys continue.”

Those words are truer now that ever. We choose to drill for oil offshore not because it is easy, but because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone by using renewable energy, and because as Americans we know we look stupid in small electric cars. As Americans it is our God given right to explore this great country from sea to shining sea and to do so at 14 miles per gallon.

Already, the forces of big government want to use this tragedy as an excuse to apply big government solutions to cleaning up this spill and putting in so called “common sense” regulations into place. Do not be fooled. I heard Rush Limbaugh earlier today and he makes an excellent point, “The ocean will take care of this on its own if it was left alone and left out there,” Limbaugh said. “It’s natural. It’s as natural as the ocean water is.”

We know that eventually the oil will simple mix into the waters of the ocean and be so diluted by the huge quantities of water to be harmless, but unfortunately the damage will already be done. Oil prices may be reaching $100 a barrel by mid-Summer and as Americans we cannot accept this.

I am calling on President Obama to work with Republicans in Congress to look for new places where we can drill. We should not rest until every usable drop of oil is extracted from the Earth for it is the lifeblood of our economy. This is a time where we can make no small plans. This is a time for action. This is a time for America to again stand tall. This is a time to drill, baby drill.
