Outrage After Dem Party Leader Insult Nikki Haley’s Indian Heritage … Says They’ll Send GOP Governor Nicki Haley “Back to Wherever the Hell She Came From” (Update: Harpootilan Defends Comment)
Talk about your double standards … Who knew the Democrat Chairman in South Carolina was a “birther”?
Republicans are outraged after South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootilan’s racist attack against Indian-American Governor Nicki Haley. The SC Democrat Party leader told supports at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center is Columbia, SC that they will send “Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.” Really Mr.Harpootilan, just where exactly is that, Gov. Haley was born in the USA. NikkinHaley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa in Bamberg, South Carolina, on January 20, 1972, to an Indian Sikh family. Imagine that, these are the same people who call those who question Barack Obama’s birth certificate and where he was born. Talk about your double standards? Its perfectly ok for Democrats to make racist comments. Where is the MSM outrage? Oh that’s right, Nikki Haley is a Republican.
Conservatives are outraged after a Democrat in South Carolina allegedly insulted Republican Gov. Nikki Haley’s Indian heritage at a party gathering in Columbia on Friday.
The state’s Democratic Party Chairman, Dick Harpootlian, is believed to have said the party will take on the Conservative in the next gubernatorial race and send ‘Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.’
Gov. Haley was born in the U.S. but her parents are from India.
Yahoo political reporter Chris Moody tweeted on Friday that Mr Harpootlian made the comment, in support of Democrat challenger Vince Sheheen, who has declared he will run for governor.
Please, had any such comment been made against Barack Obama or an individual of color who was a Democrat, everyone in the media, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be crying foul and the race card. Powerline reminds us of the past vicious comments that Harpootilan made against Nikki Haley and was allowed to get away with.
Harpootlian, a longtime Democratic figure who has a history of using harsh rhetoric, made the comments at the party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner just moments before Vice-President Joe Biden took the stage.
Asked what he meant by comment, Harpootlian wrote in an email: “Lexington County.”
Before being elected governor in 2010, Haley lived in the suburban Columbia county and represented the area in the state House.
As to whether he thought the comment could be seen as touching on her race and parents’ immigrant status, Harpootlian responded: “No, she was born in Bamberg [South Carolina] and lived in Lexington. Anybody implying anything different is attempting to feign insult.”
Two Young GOP Superstars Finish One, Two … Rand Paul wins CPAC 2013 Straw Poll with 25%, Marco Rubio Places Second at 23%
THIS TIME THE CPAC STRAW POLL JUST MIGHT HAVE CORRECTLY PICKED THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES …
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul won the CPAC 2013 straw poll with 25% of the vote. Florida Senator Marco Rubio finished a close second at 23%. Nearly 3,000 votes were cast by attendees at the three day conference held at a hotel just outside of Washington, DC in which the straw poll is considered one way to gauge where the conservative base stands on potential Republican nominees. Rand Paul had earlier wowed the crowd at CPAC.
Marco Rubio, lft. – Rand Paul, rt.
Although it is far too premature to determine a front runner for the GOP for the 2016 Presidential election, what is apparent is that the two young Turk superstars of the Republican party were at the forefront of this straw poll and have conservatives support. Sen. Rand Paul became a conservative hero with his recent 13 hour filibuster where he took Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama head on with the “Drone” issue. Rand Paul make Holder and Obama blink. Although a CPAC straw poll does not determine an eventual GOP presidential nominee, what makes this much, much different is that the two straw poll winners, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, are both cross-over candidates which the LEFT and the MSM are going to have a hard time calling right-wing extremists.
Sen. Rand Paul won the 2013 Washington Times-CPAC presidential preference straw poll Saturday, and Sen. Marco Rubio was a close second, easily outdistancing the rest of the field and signaling the rise of a new generation of conservative leaders who will take the Republican Party into the 2016 election.
Mr. Paul won 25 percent of the vote, and Mr. Rubio collected 23 percent. Former Sen. Rick Santorum was third with just 8 percent, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — who was not invited to speak at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference — was next with 7 percent, and Rep. Paul D. Ryan, the GOP’s vice presidential nominee last year, was fifth with 6 percent
The full poll results can be found here:
Paul — 25
Rubio – 23
Santorum – 8
Christie – 7
Paul Ryan – 6
Scott Walker – 5
Ben Carson – 4
Ted Cruz – 4
Bobby Jindal – 3
Sarah Palin – 3
Other – 14
Undecided – 1
A note to the 8% who voted for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was not invited to speak at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference, he is no conservative and the GOP does not need another RINO running for office in the line of other failed GOP candidates like John McCain and Mitt Romney. The GOP needs to find what it stands for and a messenger to the people who can relay that message to We the People.
Finally, a law that actually allows for the protection of school children … Reading, Writing and Revolvers.
South Dakota has become the first state in the Nation to enact a law explicitly authorizing school employees to carry guns on the job. The bill was signed into law on Friday by Gov. Dennis Daugaard. The law is in response to the call to arms to protect school children following the Newtown, CT Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting that left 20 dead. What better way to protect innocent children from the Adam Lanza’s of the world than taking away ”gun free zones”. As the Right Wing News opines, such places are considered easy pickings by those crazoids who are hell bent on mass murder and taking out as many as possible before they take their own life. This law specifically authorizes teachers to possess a firearm in a K-12 school. Protecting children in schools is not about taking law-abiding citizens Second Amendment rights away, it’s about a show of force against those that would cause harm to innocents. Why would a crazed killer attack a school, a movie theater or a mall, because they are gun free zones. Create a barrier or perception that they are not gun free and a cowardly killer would think twice. That, or they will be gunned down before too much damage is done.
South Dakota became the first state in the nation to enact a law explicitly authorizing school employees to carry guns on the job, under a measure signed into law on Friday by Gov. Dennis Daugaard. Several other states already have provisions in their laws — or no legal restrictions — that make it possible for teachers to possess guns in the classroom. In fact, a handful of school districts nationwide do have teachers who carry firearms. But South Dakota is the only known state with a statute that specifically authorizes teachers to possess a firearm in a K-12 school, according to Lauren Heintz, a research analyst at the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Representative Scott Craig, a freshman Republican in the South Dakota House who sponsored the bill, said he hoped the measure would shift the country’s discourse on school safety.
“Given the national attention to safety in schools, specifically in response to tragedies like in Connecticut, this is huge,” he said. He added that, hopefully, “dominoes will start to fall, people will see it’s reasonable, it’s safer than they think, it’s proactive and it’s preventive.”
So Punks, do ya feel lucky trying to target a school in South Dakota?
Gov. Chris Christie Slams NRA: “Reprehensible” For “Dragging People’s Children” Into Gun Debate But Fails to Mention Liberal Hypocrisy or Obama Using Children as Props
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie might as well change political party affiliations now as there is no way this Judas will ever get a GOP presidential nomination.
First Gov. Chris Christie (NJ-R) had a “bromance” with President Barack Obama during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and now Christie calls foul on the NRA for dragging people’s children into the gun debate. HUH? Following the NRA’s president’s comment that all children should be protected in their schools by armed guards or police, he and the NRA were mocked and ridiculed by the liberal media, Democrats and Barack Obama. This occurring as the very people criticizing the NRA for their comments had their children protected by guns. And no, not all of the children are protected by law by the secret service.
However, all Christie can find to criticize is the NRA bring children into the gun debate. There was no comment on Barack Obama using children as props as he came out with his anti-US Constitution, anti-2nd Amendment executive orders on gun control. Who brought “children” into the debate Gov. Christie? One can say that it was the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooter who did so. That being said, political hypocrites do not get to silence others as they protect their children and leave the tax paying publics children to the wolves.
“I think any of us who are public figures, you see that kind of ad and you cringe,” Christie said on Thursday at a news conference in Trenton. “I’m a father who is a public figure, who has four children and my children had no choice realistically in what I decided to do with my career and what affect that has had on their lives.”
“Don’t be dragging people’s children into this,” he added. “It’s wrong and I think it demeans them and it makes them less of a valid trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate.”
Christie has become a complete disappointment.
Pennsylvania Gov. Plans to Sue the NCAA in Federal Court over Sanctions Imposed against Penn State University in Wake of Sandusky Child Molestation Case
This is a head scratching law suit that the Pennsylvania governor will lose in the battle of public opinion.
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett is planning on suing the NCAA in federal court with a lawsuit in response to the sanctions levied against Penn State University in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal. Corbett is supposed to hold a press conference today to announce the law suit and how the state will file the law suit. According to reports, PSU has nothing to do with these lawsuits. The announcement will most like deal with one of the unique sanctions levied by the NCAA. One of the penalties is the $60 million fine which has become a point of contention in Pennsylvania local politics. Politicians have argued that the money should be used to fight abuse in the state of Pennsylvania, while the NCAA had initially targeted a more national approach for the money. Really folks, this is what you are suing over whether the fines should fight sexual abuse of children in PA or across the country? Poor form folks, really bad form.
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett will announce a federal lawsuit against the NCAA tied to the historic sanctions levied against Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Corbett will hold a press conference on Wednesday morning in State College, Pa., to announce the suit, which will be filed by the state.
Penn State, which has been working in concert with the NCAA since the scandal, is not involved in preparing the suit. It is being handled solely by the state.
Corbett’s office has been vague in regard to the specific aim of the suit, but it appears to be dedicated to the overall sanctions issued by the NCAA in July. Corbett referred to them on Tuesday as “illegal sanctions.”
A wholesale suit against the NCAA by a third party as powerful as the state of Pennsylvania could loom as an important case in testing the ultimate power of the NCAA.
Is this really something that the governor of Pennsylvania really wants to focus the media light on? It was such a heinous act, it just seems rather shallow that a state would only want the monies to go toward their state, rather than country wide. Shallow indeed.
Disgraced former Republican South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is planning to run for Congress for the seat he held almost a decade ago. As reported at the Politico, Sanford plans to run for Tim Scott’s Congressional seat who was recently picked by Gov. Nikki Haley to replace the retiring Senator Jim DeMint. Seriously? Do you really think that the people are willing to forgive and forget your fall from grace after having admitted to an affair with a woman from Argentina in 2009? Sanford may actually have to face his ex-wife in the primary. This guy just needs to get on with his life and stay away from politics.
Sanford is planning to launch a bid for the seat that GOP Rep. Tim Scott is vacating to fill Jim DeMint’s Senate seat. Sanford held the seat, which encompasses the Charleston and Hilton Head areas, between 1995 and 2001 before becoming governor.
A campaign would mark something of a comeback bid for Sanford, whose political ambitions dimmed after it was revealed that he had engaged in an extramarital affair.
Sanford could face competition, however. Among the potential candidates are state House Majority Whip Jimmy Merrill, state Rep. Chip Limehouse and state Sens. Larry Grooms and Chip Campsen. Jenny Sanford, Mark Sanford.
Pack your bags Christie … you will never be the GOP presidential nominee.
RINO New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called Barack Obama to wish the president congrats on his 2012 reelection win; however, only emailed Romney on the loss. Nice. Maybe Christie puckered up some more to Obama? This from the man who claimed he backed Romney, yet bear hugged Obama and provided a false image that Obama was actually bi-partisan and that Obama was actually handling the Hurricane Sandy disaster properly. UNREAL.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said that he had called President Obama to congratulate him on his win in the 2012 presidential election — but has only sent an email to Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for whom he campaigned heavily earlier this year.
“We didn’t have a political strategy discussion,” Christie said of his call to Obama, according to Bloomberg. “I said congratulations on your win last night Mr. President, he said thank you governor.”
Christie added that he had sent an email to Romney on Wednesday night.
As stated by Weasel Zippers, who would expect any less from Judas? Christie might as well change party affiliation as he will never get the Republican nomination after this “fox in the hen house” episode. This will never be forgotten. One of the reasons ultimately why Romney did not perform better was that he was too moderate for the GOP base. Christie is left of Romney no matter what comes out of his big mouth. Do not fret Lonely Conservative, those that vote to nominate a prez candidate will never, never vote for Christie after this.
Is Swing State of New Hampshire Ready for a Republican Gov. and Vote for Romney over Obama? Romney Leads by 3, Lamontagne by 4
It appears that the “Live Free or Die” state is ready to swing Republican.
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney leads Barack Obama 48% to 45%. Obama won NH in 2008 by 9 points, 54% to 45% over McCain. Now he finds himself behind by 3, what a difference four years makes. Polling at 45% is hardly encouraging for an incumbent candidate.
Mitt Romney has now taken the lead in the swing state of New Hampshire.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in New Hampshire shows Romney with 48% support to President Obama’s 45%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.
Also, Republican Ovide Lamontagne finds himself slightly ahead of Democrat Maggie Hassan in the NH governors race, 48% to 44%. In 2008, incumbent Democrat Gov. Lynch defeated his GOP rival by a 70% to 28% margin and won by only 7.6% in 2010. Gov. Lynch is not seeking reelection.
Rasmussen Reports’ first look at New Hampshire’s gubernatorial race since the state’s party primaries finds Republican Ovide Lamontagne slightly ahead of Democrat Maggie Hassan. A new telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Granite State shows Lamontagne earning 48% of the vote, while Hassan picks up 44% support. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.
Even though the unemployment rate in the Granite state is lower than the national average, it appears top be going in the wrong direction.
UPDATE I: The Lonely Conservative has linked with a Pennsylvania poll that has a near dead heat between Romney and Obama.
Democrats Continue Nasty Nazi Comments … SC Democratic Party Compared Gov. Nikki Haley (SC-R) to Adolf Hitler Mistress Eva Braun
What ever happened to that civility that President Barack Obama called for when he traveled to Tucson, AZ following the shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords that left six dead and 14 injured? Obama stated, “We can do better”. Really Mr. President, you might want to start by reining in your own party. Talk about leading from behind, President Obama cannot control his own party, is it any wonder he has failed America.
In yet another display of complete ignorance and vile behavior, Democrats have compared another Republican to Nazi’s at the RNC convention in Charlotte, NC. Dick Harpootlian, the South Carolina Democratic Party chairman, made the comment that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley “She was down in the bunker à la Eva Braun.” Of course Braun was the mistress of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Sick.
“The latest offender is Dick Harpootlian, the South Carolina Democratic Party chairman, whose outrageous words I will not repeat,” said former Sen. Norm Coleman (Minn.) in a statement released by the Romney campaign. “In recent days, we’ve seen similarly disgraceful statements from a top Kansas Democratic delegate and from the chairman of the California Democratic Party.
“President Obama has called for civility in American politics. If his call is to be taken seriously, it’s time for the President to rein in those of his supporters and allies who are trivializing Nazism while also shamelessly trampling on the most basic rules of American political discourse.”
Harpootlian made the comments in reference to a Republican National Committee rapid-response center in the basement of the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C.
“She was down in the bunker à la Eva Braun,” he said.
Earlier in the week, California Democrat Party chair John Burton compared the GOP to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. GOP Presidential nominee called on Team Obama to tamp it down on the Nazi comments. Ya think? However, don’t hold your breathe Mitt, these folks are just some of the most vile, rotten human beings that will say anything without the slightest bit of compassion or caring.
Mitt Romney’s campaign issued a statement Wednesday demanding Democratic officials “cease and desist from comparing those with whom they disagree to Nazis” after the chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party compared Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) to Adolf Hitler mistress Eva Braun.
Jamming Wearing Fool seconds the notion that Dems at this convention are just vile creatures as they state, “Hey, they trample upon their own delegates. Smearing Republicans all day, every day is nothing. Heck, this rockhead Harpootlian even doubled down.” And that is exactly what Harpootlian did. He felt no apology was needed. Just plain sick. But if you boo God, what else would one expect?
Barack Obama, Leading from Behind … Obama Changes Schedule to Visit Louisiana, Guilted into It By Romney’s Visit to Gulf Coast to Tour Hurricane Isaac Damage
AMERICA, WE HAVE A JOKE OF A PRESIDENT IN THE WHITE HOUSE … LEADING FROM BEHIND!
Sorry, Barack Obama is not a President, he is not a Commander in Chief, he is an empty suit, elected on the false promise of “Hope & Change” and would rather campaign and fund raise as opposed to doing his job. It has been said over and over that Barack Obama does not lead, he follows. Obama, the President of the United States leads from behind.During this weeks RNC Convention, former Secretary of State Condi Rice said in a tremendous speech, “we cannot lead from behind”. Guess who she was referring to?
And I know too that there is weariness – a sense that we have carried these burdens long enough. But if we are not inspired to lead again, one of two things will happen – no one will lead and that will foster chaos — or others who do not share our values will fill the vacuum. My fellow Americans, we do not have a choice. We cannot be reluctant to lead – and one cannot lead from behind.
Yesterday, we reported that following the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney, the GOP Presidential nominee, adjusted his campaign schedule and decided to tour Louisiana and the Hurricane Isaac storm damaged areas and meet with the affected people. Romney said, “I’m here to learn and obviously to draw some attention to what’s going on here”. Romney would do this along side Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. So it begs the question, where is Obama? Many on the LEFT whined and complained that the GOP should cancel their convention in Tampa, FL because of Hurricane Isaac. Instead, the GOP delayed the convention by an day and managed to push 4 days of activities into 3. What did Obama do? Well he continued to campaign as usual. The GOP convention was three years in the planning, Obama’s campaigning and fundraising, not so much. Barack Obama was business as usual and went to his campaign stops, but Obama Says He Discussed Hurricane Isaac by Phone—From Plane. That’s mighty big of you. This coming from the “Hypocrite in Chief who criticized GWB for not visiting fast enough the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina hit.
Some one needs to explain to me, better yet explain to the affected Hurricane Isaac individuals of the Gulf Coast, how in the hell the President of the United States did not visit the devastated areas of Louisiana before the GOP nominee? Mitt Romney changes his schedule to show his concern and visit with those who were affected by Isaac before Obama? Exactly which one is the President? We all know who should and will be President, but this is disgraceful.Talk about your Obama, leading from behind.
