Skip to comments.Confirmed: Debra Medina is a 9/11 Truther.
Posted on 02/11/2010 9:45:43 AM PST by AKReportz
Six days ago, the big news out of Texas was that Tea Party activist and gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina came within the margin of error with Kay Bailey Hutchison, who barely clung to second place against incumbent Rick Perry. Today, Glenn Beck suffers heartbreak when Medina more or less cops to being a 9/11 Truther as well as a constitutional conservative candidate. I think some very good questions raised have been raised in that regard, Medina replies when Beck asks whether she believes that the American government was in any way involved in bringing down the World Trade Center towers on 9/11. Medina says she wont take a position on a question where good questions have been raised and havent been answered, even though they have been answered for years. Beck and the others in his studio cant quite believe their ears:

They’re going nutz on her FB page:
She disqualified herself.
We need our conservative officials to have courage.
We also need them to be of sound mental health.
The 9/11 truthers who supported her are coming out of the woodwork on her FB page by providing links to conspiracy theories, etc.
Page has been deleted.
She didn’t say she was at all....she said she would not fire someone on her staff who was...that is a big difference.
Hmmmmmm. Still works for me. :-/
Um, not quite.
She said, “There are a lot of quesitons unanswered. There are a lot of good arguments made.”
She’s a truther.
So there you go.
We don't know what she thinks...she seems to believe there are facts on the wild side of this issue that demand investigation. For me...knowing the nutcases were all arabian was all I need to know.
Well, looks like it’s Rick Perry then. Not great, but better than KBH and better than a truther nutball.
You can’t spin away her lack of forceful denial of the charges made by some in Texas who informed Glenn that she espoused the idea. Her first answer, that “some interesting questions have been raised” was bad enough, but the disingenuous “I’ve never heard that before” to his explanation that Texans are warning she is a truther is all I need to know that she is dishonest, not worthy of holding an office of Public Trust.
I say it is the later without a doubt.
And if she is someone who thinks Americans did this horror to fellow Americans, then if she cannot simply SAY SO she is not worthy of anyone's vote. That kind of obfuscation is a liberal way of doing things. Dishonest.
If she thinks there are outstanding questions about it all, then she should say so, like she did.
Rick is Sarah’s pick! :^)
Nice try, but this one's not going to get spun. She's toast.
“She’s dead, Jim.”
Ya, Rick P. is OK by me, but then again, I’m a Mizz-u-rah man...
Glenn Beck’s ignorance has begun to show.
I call him “Rick with a P.”
Good arguments made.............
Dear God, what is in her head beside a big empty space.
Whether supporting it herself or supporting someone who does, the woman shouldn’t hold office. But I do now understand the rapid response team for this woman that came out of nowhere. It seems to follow whenever Ron Paul or his crazy theories are involved.
I was thinking about voting for her in the primary. Now, I would vote for the DEMOCRAT if she got the GOP nomination.
I LOATHE truthers. (Some here have read why.) She can go right straight to (censored) as far as I am concerned!
Oooh, you be a baaad boy...
Yeah, me too, though currently living in No'ff Car'lina.
Yep, looks like some people owe Sarah an apology because she was bashed by some here for endorsing Perry. She made the right decision. Besides, I like Rick, I hope he wins
Is it possible there are Troofers at FR?
Sarah is dodging bullets we can’t even see!
I didn’t bash her, but I did wonder why she supported Perry. Now maybe I have my answer. Sheesh, and the one time I heard Medina speak she sounded so....well...not crazy.
Seems really fruitcake like, to moi.
Yeah...there are truthers here on FR because I am one of those weird ones, according to Glenn Beck's measure, at any rate, who seriously questions barack hussein uhbama's origins. Yep. That would be me...I believe the entire episode is fraught with holes.
That would be a Birther and not a Truther. Not at all the same thing. In fact I had never heared of the term Birther until last year when the media had to coin a term to discredit the issue or discuss about the issue when trashing people questioning the facts. I called it the Birth Certificate Issue when it sprung up in 2008.
The “Birthers” are supposed to be the people who believe that Obama did not show a valid birth certificate in 2008 and a bunch of them have concluded he wasn’t born in Hawaii, but in Kenya or somewhere outside the USA.
Truthers are nuts like Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, Al Franken, Charlie Sheen and others who feel that the government caused the 9/11 attack. They only base it on fake evidence. Created a lame movie called Loose Change which shows no credible evidence.
The “birth certificate issue” has nothing to do with the “9/11 truthers.”
But, both sides, see Glenn Beck and Keith Olbermann, have marginalized Birthers to be like Truthers.
I personally keep up with the Birth Certificate Issue, but I am not a “Birther.” I don’t yet have enough proof to be sure of anything other than Obama did not show the correct birth certificate.
But some people like a Rev. James David Manning, have made it a crusade to bash anyone who doesn’t agree 100 percent with them. But likewise, others like Bill O’Reily have made a crusade to bash people who say anything regarding the issue other than all of them are nuts.
She said that she could not confirm or deny the position (It's pleading "nolo contendere")
Memo To: Debra Medina Campaign Staff
Turn out the lights; the party’s over!
I was a Debra Medina supporter. I stuck my neck out for her to my family and friends. Last night, I had to send out e-mails telling everyone that I was withdrawing my support for Debra Medina for Governor of Texas.
If she can’t answer a simple question from Glenn Beck, she sure as heck can’t run the State of Texas.
G’bye Debbie; we hardly knew ya.
(Matter of fact, we didn’t know ya. Glad we found out before it was too late.)
Me too. She’s a moron.
One night about 18 months ago, after RINO Rick’s idea of selling the Texas Lotto, Toll roads, unproven drugs, yelling at a DPS LEO about stopping “him” for speeding and the “adios Mofo,” I swore an oath to God that I would never vote for him again.
So all you Perry “snipers” on this board can shoot away at me. It is my oath and I will honor it.
I will not be changed on this. Jim Rob can ban me, suspend me, that is fine. I am voting and my opinions are mine.
Evidently, on Friday she told reporters that she wondered why no policemen died when so many firemen did.
Agree with her or disagree, in all honesty what she said took lots of courage, since it will likely hurt her in the media.
So you either believe everything the government told you or you’re a truther? I believe terrorists hijacked planes into the WTC, on Osama’s orders/funding. However, I question that it’s possible the black boxes were found by someone. Does that make me a truther? I hope not!
It only requires mental instability.
The 9-11 “truthers” are mentally unstable.
There is no explaining away the fact that she said the truthers are legitimately questioning their government.
If you believe the truthers are asking legitimate questions, you are a truther yourself or have such poor judgment you need not be seeking public office.
If you believe that the government has lied about the black boxes, then you should wonder why you feel that way. Because if you do think they’ve lied, then you do indeed believe in a conspiracy on a grand scale.
She said this:
“On the show, Medina said, “There are some very good arguments and I think the American people have not seen all of the evidence there so I have not taken a position on that.”
When she sat down with us, she explained further.
“I think the questions I’ve heard asked are how the buildings fell. I am not the engineer to know that, but they are good relevant questions to ask,” Medina told us. “
She’s either a moron or crazy.
So maybe we all need to sit back, relax and stop the mocking, but just make sure, like you mention, that folks who hold wingnut ideas are kept from higher office.
Does anybody else grimace and roll their eyes when they see "tea party" capitalized, as if it's a real "organization" with "leaders", etc.? I swear the rats are hard at work through their newsrooms (and with a lot of help from misdirected political wannabes/dupes) to turn the tea party protests of 2009 into the kind of marginal, divisive laughingstock that the "Move On" campaign evolved into.
I don't believe for a minute that she was 'set up'- but what if she was? At least we got a deal-breaker bit of info that could save us from disaster. Putting up 'truther' Medina against the Democratic candidate would be suicide.
That's not the question I heard, Medina said. She said she thought he was asking about whether citizens should question their government. SAY WHAT?? How plain did Beck have to make it? It was a simple question; do you or do you not believe our government was responsible for 9/11?? All she had to do- as any rational, sane person would do- is answer a simple 'no'.
This idea that Beck (or anybody else) sabotaged Medina is absurd. If you cant answer did the govt have anything to do with the 9/11 attacks? you're not be fit to run for dogcatcher.
For God's sake, have any of you really looked into her platform- her background? Has this woman even been vetted?
She wants legalized drugs.
She backs gay marriage.
She is for abortion
She has not spoken to her elderly parents for YEARS. They had to find out she was runing for governor of Texas by reading the newspaper!
http://www.statesman.com/news/texas-politics/medina-hailing-from-beeville-learned-political-skills-on-229907.html?srcTrk=RTR_95609 What does this say about this woman's character? And rumors are begin to surface about husband Noe's past associations.
Take a look at some of the statements she has made: "Its a shame isnt it, that Republicans continue to ignore Hispanics especially here in Texas?
"Who is going to think more about Latino families? Rick Perry, Kay Bailey Hutchison or me, who has a Latino family?
"Being married, however, to someone with a Mexican American heritage, I certainly embrace the culture.
"I believe we too often get into race when its immaterial. (Obummer, is that you?)
I don't believe for one minute Medina's propaganda about wanting to strengthen the border! La Raza probably has her in their back pocket!
Glenn Beck has once again helped the tea-party stay in the Republican mainstreamby by weeding out dangerous fringe thinkers like Medina.
Medina is NOT representative of the Tea Party movement. She USED them- latched herself on to them. Shes a hard core Libertarian who has realized that the Libertarian Party will never win anything and that the only possible way to get herself into office is to do what Ron Paul did and wrap herself in the Republican cloak in hopes that it will fool enough of the voters enough of the time. Thank God Glen Beck outed her in time.
Retrieve your sombrero from the ring and go home Senora Medina. You're Texas toast.
