Susana Martinez on the “American Comeback”

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:38 PM (16:38)

Here Mitt Romney in drag New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez explains her ideals in bringing America “back” from the economic duldrums.

As with most lamestream Republicans fronted by the McCleskey Clique, there’s no real plan to bring New Mexico and America “back,” only to slow our descent into irrelevancy and servitude.

It’s a choice between going over the fiscal cliff at 100 MPH versus going over the same cliff at 150 MPH (the Democrat way).

Anyone who advocates slamming on the brakes (IMAGINE THAT!), or turning around and going away from that fiscal cliff is ridiculed as an idiot, a lunatic or labeled as “greedy” and “mean-spirited” by the Democrats and their posterior-kissers in the lamestream snoozemedia.

<sarcasm>Gee, wow, what a choice! How could I not support Republicans with everything I am, everything I have, everything I do?</sarcasm>

For example, what is she doing, as Governor of the State of New Mexico, to resist the imposition of Obamacare upon us, the private-sector citizenry?

Besides implementing Obamacare, that is?

Mullins, Martinez, and Giuliani

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:19 AM (11:19)

Current mood: cynical

Dear New Mexicans,

Tom Mullins was at a Rio Rancho Tea Party rally last night. About 50+ attended. Enthusiasm was high, the meeting well organized. Tom is still strong and determined. He is said to be within 4 to 5 points of Lujan.

Tom Mullins is, in my opinion, an unprincipled eqivocating slanderer and libeler.

IF Mullins tops Lujan in the general election . . .

Considering the demographics of the district and the comments that Mullins has made after getting the GOP nomination (joking about landmines on the southern border, “there weren’t too many white faces” at the Kewa Pueblo ceremony), that’s a BIG “IF.”

But IF that were to happen, the Third District would have just as good a representative as the First had with Heather Wilson.

I’d like Mullins to list for New Mexican voters TEN (10) existing federal spending programs that, as a Congressman, he will sponsor repeals of within a week of being seated in Congress.

Richard T. (sorry, I didn’t write down his full name) told us about the RRTP plan for the next 27 days to get out the vote. It’s so well thought out, so purposeful and practical, I was riveted. This plan is going to bowl Lujan out of office. I hope to be able to take part in it.

The plan’s originators have decided to share their idea with other TPs as a blueprint for success. Well done, RRTP.

Ah, but look at who this plan will replace Lujan with. Utterly repulsive.

Far better to leave Lujan in office than replace him with Mullins. Better an up-front enemy than a backstabber professing friendship.

When Mullins first come out from under his rock as a challenger to Adam Kokesh, one of Adam’s supporters drafted a document titled “Tom Mullins – Ben Ray Lujan’s Best Friend.”[1]. When Adam heard about it, he quashed it immediately, as he wanted to run a clean, issues-based campaign. Adam was rewarded for this with a smear campaign on the part of Mullins:

Blowback Comes Home to New Mexico / GOT ADAM!

Other info:

1. Latest polls on Martinez/Denish race has Martinez 6 pts ahead of Denish. This was confirmed on 3 different networks. That’s a strong win-win signal for the NM GOP slate.

For me, Martinez comes across as a Tom Mullins in a skirt, with a bit of an “off-switch,” in that she is more guarded in her comments.

As for principles, I have just as much faith and confidence in her as I do in Tom Mullins.

3. Tom Mullins will be debating Lujan on PBS—Channel 5 here in ABQ. That’s KNME. Set for Sunday, Oct. 10. Call the station for time our area. Tom will be at the Tanoan Forum.

Let’s see – he’s joked about planting landmines along the southern border. He’s complained about the lack of “white faces” at a Kewa Pueblo ceremony that he was invited to attend.

Who will he offend next? The black population? Asians? Jews?

Does he even realize what he’s doing when he makes these sorts of comments?

I suspect that he could complain about my comments – he’s got every right as a Tourette’s-American to make these sorts of comments.

4. Re Jon Barela’s race: Former mayor of NYC and former presidential candidate Rudy Guiliani will be coming to ABQ on Sunday October 12 to support Jon’s efforts. I will be getting location and time, today after lunch. I’ll try to send to you.

Ewww. Ugh.

After reading that paragraph, I feel like I need a shower. Or better yet, a full HAZMAT scrubdown.

This is Rudy-poo Giuliani we’re talking about here – the same Rudy-poo who, prior to running for president in 2008, never met a restriction on gun owners he didn’t like.

This is the same Rudy-poo who said in 1993:

“We look upon authority too often and focus over and over again, for thirty or forty or fifty years, as if there is something wrong with authority. We see only the oppressive side of authority. Maybe it comes out of our history and our background. What we don’t see is that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.”
– Rudy Giuliani, The New York Times, 20 March 1994

More goodies at http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Rudy_Giuliani

Will Rudy-poo show up at the Jon Barela fundraiser wearing his prom dress?

Will Donald Trump show up and shove his face in Rudy-poo’s cleavage?

A Republican Party that embraces Rudy-poo Giuliani is NOT a Republican Party that I can support.

Tweedle Fascist “vs” Tweedle Socialist ?

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:19 PM (23:19)

Current mood: cynical

In this election cycle’s gubernatorial race, we’ve got Tweedle Fascist and Tweedle Socialist playing games with rhetoric over tax hikes and spending cuts.

Bailing Out New Mexico: How It May Be Done

Monahan speculates that a 2002-style raid on the permanent fund is imminent AND that Martinez isn’t ruling out her support for such a raid.

Susana Takes Center Lane On Education

Per Monahan, Martinez disavows cutting the public-school budgets, and then disavows Florida-style vouchers.

I just have to wonder – don’t results matter?

Martinez: No Tax Hikes in First Term

Martinez promises no tax hikes in the first term, even while pledging not to cut the (non-productive) public school system.

In the same article, Dipstick Denish proposes Ø450,000,000 in spending cuts over five years, mostly nickel-and-dime stuff.

Conclusion – both candidates leave the free-market voter on the side of the road where taxes and spending are concerned.

What’s left?!

Second Amendment: Well . . . Martinez promises to leave gun owners alone (I think). Denish complains that the southern border is a “transit point for narcotics and weapons”.

Drug Prohibition: Martinez is an enthusiastic Drug Worrier, who can’t shut up about the “scourge” of various substances upon society. Mind you, Dipstick Denish isn’t really an improvement here – she also supports all sorts of police-state-style crackdowns in the name of “eradicating meth.” The big difference between the two is over the State’s medical-marijuana program – Denish supports maintaining it as is (see here, warts and all), while Martinez wants to shut it down, as “it’s a violation of federal law.” (What part of Art.I, Sec.8 authorizes the federals to outlaw plant products? So much for Martinez being a “Constitutionalist” !)

As Bill Koehler frequently points out, any activity that’s peaceful (doesn’t involve initiating force upon anyone else) should be legal. It doesn’t matter whether we’re talking about which private school you want to enroll your kids in, or whether you want to homeschool them. If you want to paint the word “TAXI” on the side of your car and offer people rides around town for money, that’s OK, regardless of whether you’ve been sanctioned by the PRC. Why should the little kids with the lemonade stand have to get business licenses and tax stamps?!

I’d like to challenge both of them to name ten (10) existing spending items that they would like to permanently repeal, since the Unanimous Consent Challenge is almost certainly over both of their heads.

Thoughts on the Debate from the Peanut Gallery

Filed under: Events, Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:17 PM (14:17)

On Thursday, 20 May 2010, I attended the debate between Republican gubernatorial candidates at UNM’s Rodey Hall in the Popejoy Arts Center. The debate was hosted by Channel 4 (KOB-TV), the local NBC affiliate, and sponsored by the Rio Grande Foundation. The hour-long forum was moderated by Nicole Brady and Tom Joles.

Don’t take my word for any of what I’ve typed below. Here’s the video of the debate — click here to see for yourself.

First, a disclaimer — I’m a Libertarian and a libertarian, so my presence was mostly for entertainment purposes. I haven’t considered myself a conservative for 14 years now, and I’m not in any hurry to revert to doing so. For the most part, this debate simply confirmed what I was already thinking about the candidates.

After the candidates took their spots and gave their opening statements, the fun began.

All of the candidates hit on some common themes throughout the hour —

  • They all cited corruption (pay-to-play, backroom / insider deals, etc.) as one of the State’s main problems. Can’t disagree there.
  • It sounded (at least to me) that all of them wanted to drastically cut, if not shut down, the elephante blanco known as the RailRunner, citing fiscal irresponsibility as another big problem in State government. Again, can’t disagree there.
  • Each of them said they wanted the State to adopt a more pro-business attitude — be friendlier towards the private sector, in other words.
  • Secure the borders, with the National Guard if Obama won’t reinforce the Border Patrol.

Pete Domenici Jr. stayed on track for what he wanted to say and didn’t get involved in sniping at the others. Still, he pointed out his family connection to New Mexico, which is something I expect to see from Democrats. Not saying that’s bad per se, but given the former Senator’s fiscal wimpiness and apparent closeness to the Busheviks . . . .

Janice Arnold-Jones disappointed me a bit. Bob Cornelius told me that Arnold-Jones came across strongly, and I would disagree a bit — she seemed a bit frazzled at times, especially during the Weh-Martinez sniping, as Weh took a potshot at her, too. That, and as a legislator, she has done her share of citing “emergency circumstances” as the reason that public project funding is necessary. Sorry, but the word “emergency” to me means someone got hurt or could get hurt, lots of police cars, fire trucks and ambulances with their lights and sirens going full blast. Whether some community center gets built in the next decade does NOT to me constitute any sort of emergency.

Allen Weh provided some comic relief for the libertarian-minded in the audience, with his pissy complaints about insider deals within the GOP, and the attack adverts ran against him by the Martinez campaign. Poor boy Allen! I still remember reading how in 2008, when he was the GOPNM’s State Chairman, he ruled the Ron Paul delegates to their State Convention in Las Cruces as being “out of order,” saying that “We don’t operate by Robert’s Rules but by pleasure of the chair.” Aside from that, just a typical Republican, promising tax cuts and spending cuts.

Also from Weh —

  • “Everybody hungers for leadership — leadership with integrity”
  • On the issue of using military force to secure the border — “No one understands the operational issues like I do . . . .”

Susana Martinez is the front-runner in this race, and according to some sources, the Anointed one by the GOPNM insiders. Still, she doesn’t seem to be taking this race for granted, considering that the same person I got the link in the last sentence from also said that the reason that Susana is running as a Republican is that she lost the primary as a Democrat the last time and switched affiliations to avoid losing power. Bad, BAD sign there, if true. Of all of the candidates, Martinez harped on the border “issue” the most[1], taking a potshot at Weh for his previous support of a guest-worker program[2].

Doug Turner came across as the clear winner, at least to me, and also to a (non-scientific) online poll of viewers by KOB staff. He deviates from the libertarian party-line with his support for an expanded Drug Prohibition and closing the border. Still, he stayed above the Weh-Martinez pissing contest during the debate, and throughout the campaign. Still, he did say to me, “I’m a libertarian,” when all of the other candidates would have blown off the very idea of libertarianism, even if I had explained how the Non-Aggression Principle doesn’t disallow the defensive use of force.

After the debate, I met Lance and Patrick from the local Ron Paul Campaign for Liberty group. Patrick was verbally arguing with some of the Weh supporters, who allegedly had gotten belligerent with him over his “NO WEH” sign. Leaving UNM property, we met again at the Nob Hill Bar and Grill, where Doug Turner was partying with his supporters.

Finally, a good note — the guy directly in front of me was wearing a M1911-style pistol on his belt in open-carry mode. Good for him! Though I am surprised that no one in the audience called UNMPD out to have him “proned out” facedown and cuffed for “violating UNM policy” and such.


NOTES

  1. Susana seems to be operating under the assumption that EVERY person crossing the border sans approval from the Imperial Washington DC imbecilocracy is intent upon robbery, assault, kidnapping, rape and murder, when the exact opposite seems to be true.
  2. As I was exiting Rodey Hall, one of Martinez’s supporters handed me a text-only reprint of an Albuquerque Journal op-ed piece dated 3 October 2007, allegedly by Allen Weh, citing support for some sort of guest-worker program.
