Posts Tagged ‘Massachusetts Special Election’

Everyone remembers the enchanting, idealistic Frank Capra film about Mr. Smith [James Stewart] going to Washington, witnessing dirt and corruption, and refusing to go along with it.  On Tuesday, Scott Brown, running as a Republican,  trounced an opponent to win a Senate seat held by the Democrats for 40 years.

Today, he met in Washington with John Kerry, the other Democratic senator from Massachusetts and held a press conference in which he appeared calm, confident and at ease, while Mr. Kerry seemed stiff, choleric beneath his attempt to maintain a calm countenance, and nervous.

For Mr. Kerry has spent enough time inside the Beltway to know how slimy the ropes there can be, and since Mr. Brown did not arrive in his senate–correction, the Peoples’ seat, as he oft reminds us–he does know how Mr. Brown will respond to the traditional partisan arm pulling that goes on around there.

Because there is already a hue and cry to seat Mr. Brown immediately, it does not appear that it will take long to swear him in and allow him to get on with the business of being a senator.  It has been said that, “as soon as the paperwork is forthcoming, he will be seated.”

The question, as always, is when indeed WILL the paperwork arrive, and how much will his opponents–in this case, the Democrat majority in the senate–do to stall it.  It would appear that efforts to thwart seating would not only be in vain, but, now that so many are on to their tactics, reflect poorly upon those who would try it.

In the meantime–it appears that America has turned a new corner, and, despite frantic efforts to derail, discredit and subvert the will of the American people and anyone who disagrees with the socialistic party line being handed down out of the White House, the will of the American people has been made known, and is gathering steam.  It is hard to conceal the presence of 2.1 Million people anywhere, let alone in our nation’s capitol and it is harder yet to steal their minds.  It has been tried, unsuccessfully, and Americans have shown, time and again, that they love their country, their Constitution, and their freedoms.  They will not relinquish these for anything or anyone.

So, welcome to Washington, Mr. Brown.  May you succeed in bringing a breath of fresh air to that stultified, thug ridden city, and help to facilitate  rise, once again, of the American Spirit!

Well, it’s official folks:  Scott Brown has broken a 40 year reign of DNC political machine tyranny in the Massachusetts Senate race tonight, beating his opponent, Martha Coakley by a swift and healthy margin.  Third Wave Dave put it spot on when he said last night on Andrea Shea King,  “Obama Is Now In The Back Seat of Ted Kennedy’s Oldsmobile now!  Like Virginia and New Jersey before it, Massachusetts has now joined the growing number of states refusing to be railroaded by an ineligible, America hating administration, virtually insuring that he will be a one time occupant of our beloved White House.

What’s next?  When miracles happen, they remind us that anything is possible–even a return to our Constitution and its values!

*a big H/T to Third Wave Dave!

The Vote Heard Round The World: January 19, 2010

Today the world watches Massachusetts as its people go to the polls to vote in the special election for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat.  If Scott Brown succeeds in his bid against the Democratic favorite, it will be the first time in 40 years that the Democratic machine is not running things in Massachusetts; it will also be yet another nail in the DNC coffin, the first two being the Democratic upsets last November in Virginia and New Jersey.   Despite campaign swings by the pResident in both states, they lost, and so it may very well go in Massachusetts as well.

Rallies with Obama and Coakley were poorly attended and marked by heckling; conversely, support for Brown seems almost unanimous with a majority of Brown signs and positive response from phone banking callers and house to house canvassers.  The sentiments echo over and over:  “WE MUST PUT A STOP TO THIS MAN! [Obama]; ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!; and it appears that Brown is the vehicle for triumph.  Even decidedly Democrat CNN was forced to report that Brown seems to be gaining heavily while Coakley’s numbers are shaky and running far behind at best.

However, the concern about voter fraud in the form of voter intimidation at the polls,  machine tampering and “ballot enhancement through absentee vote” runs rampant.  To that end, Atlas Shrugs has posted information for anyone willing to go to Massachusetts, all expenses paid,  to help keep things legal.

One thing is certain, however:  the outpouring of Patriots traveling to Massachusetts in the name of Patriotism is astounding, heartwarming and a power of example to us all.  It reminds us that we CAN work together to take back our beloved country, one Senate seat at a time.

My show last night was dedicated to Scott Brown’s campaign and to those Patriots helping him to succeed.  Bless them all.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today is Martin Luther King day, a day set aside to commemorate the work and the beliefs of Martin Luther King, who perished by an assassin’s bullet in the spring of 1968.  His work is, of course legendary, from his beginnings in Atlanta to his “I have a dream” speech at the Mall in Washington, D.C.  When I think of him, I think of his admonition to judge people “not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Indeed, he would be sickened, saddened and probably outraged to witness the co-option of his views by the modern day racists that have seized our government, desecrated his name and trampled our Constitution, perverting his words and using them to achieve their own selfish ends, for Martin Luther King, Jr., too, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.  The sad, sad difference between then and now is that HE actually did a lot of work which had a positive influence on the world in order to get HIS prize. The shoddy, the cynical, the cheap have always hovered around fame in this world; the problem is that, these days, they do not hover in the background, but spit in the face of all that is good, stealing the prizes and hogging the spotlight by doing nothing worthwhile or worthy of recognition.  So, folks, to listen to a REAL Nobel prize winner, one that earned that recognition, click on the hotlink above.  I guarantee you, it’s the Genuine Article, and today, of all days, we should hear the speech of a Genuine prize winner.

Tomorrow in Massachusetts, the special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s vacant Senate seat will take place.  It appears to be an upset for the DNC controlled, 40 year run.  Reports coming in from Boston, Worcester and indeed, all of Massachusetts indicate a huge win for Republican contender, Scott Brown, with people from many states going there to work phone banks, hold signs, attend rallies and canvass door to door.  I received a report this morning from someone who attended one of the rallies in Worcester, and tonight’s Dame Truth Radio will be dedicated to Scott Brown’s campaign and the tireless workers who have come to help him win.

NYers Work for Brown in Mass!

Join us tonight at 8 PM EST for The Dame Truth About The Massachusetts Election!
