Debra Medina, new star of America's right, is firing up the race for Texas governor
The Observer ^ | 2-28-10 | Paul Harris

Posted on 02/28/2010 7:12:26 AM PST by Pantera

Lytle is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of town, one of hundreds that dot the vast flat ranchlands of southern Texas. A smear of houses by the main highway between San Antonio and Laredo. Population: 2,383. The first streets only got paved here in the years after the second world war. A sewage system took a little longer, not being built until the 1960s. In short, Lytle, Texas, has never been big enough to have much impact on the politics of the Lone Star state. And few Texas politicians have ever paid much attention to it.

No doubt about it, Medina has heavy support from all the tea parties around North Texas.

I thought Glenn Beck outed her as a truther and pretty much ended her run for Governor. Is she making a comeback?

Truthers are now right wing?

When did that happen? Is that like the Nazis supposedly being right wing when they were all Socialists?

I don't live in California but I can tell you that those running that state into the ground are affecting everybody in other states. Why? because eventually we will have to bail them out for their misdeeds.

I live in Texas, and I can assure you that if we don't get our ILLEGAL problem under control we will wind up just like California.

So...it's everybody's business.

Medina believes in the "Truth?"

Wow. She's getting my vote. Personally I'm tired of being lied to.

As for Beck "outing her." All I heard her say was she "didn't know." Sounded like a pretty honest and "truthful" answer to me.

Yeah... Watch as all the "Perry" supporters slither onto this thread and try to trash her. I find it funny how apposed to the "truth" Perry supporters are but then their candidate is a liar so what the heck right? Trash away. Never let a good fantasy get in the way of the truth. Isn't that right all you Perry supporters. ;-)

Who crowned her the ‘tea party’ candidate. The loon former OBL truther doesn’t just get to say she is a tea party candidate. At our Tea Party yesterday there were two hippie looking college kids with Medina signs, everyone else seemed to be supporting Perry- all ages, all backgrounds.

Sorry .. I would never vote for anybody who believes the Bush admin planned and carried out the attack on the WTC.

GET REAL!!!! This woman is NOT the NEW STAR of the right. I’m on the right, and she’s not even on the radar.

All she is doing is causing more of a split in the GOP .. and right now .. with all the skulduggery going on in the current admin .. we just don’t need this.

And .. if she’s professing to be on the RIGHT .. why does she support the 9/11 truther movement WHICH WAS STARTED ON THE LEFT ..??

It’s people like this that give the REAL RIGHT (conservatives) a bad name, and allows the left to make us look like a bunch of loons.

I don’t think Medina has a chance of winning this and her ambiguity on 9-11 really didn’t serve her well. Anyone who believes the 9-11 truther crap is not fit for office. Where as birthers are harmless truthers are nuts. That said Perry will win. Perry may not be perfect but he has been supportive of the Tea Parties from the beginning. We have two Tea Party Candidates. I trust Perry because I know who he is.
Also it seems the log cabbies love Medina and I’m never supporting an ally of glbt radicalism.

"Excuse me? How is someone who thinks our government may have orchestrated the 9/11 attacks conservative?"

Two things. One - Medina has never said she thinks our government may have orchestrated the 9/11 attacks; you Perry supporters try to put those words into her mouth. Two - How is someone who thinks our government may have helped to orchestrate the biggest fraud known to man (man-made global warming) conservative?
You've never heard of the government's "Cap and trade" legislation they're trying to ram down our throats?

If you think our government is being truthful with us vote for Perry. If you think big government is out to screw you vote for Medina.

Maybe you should take the time to learn who Medina is and what she stands for before ripping her apart eh?

Are we so desperate to clean house of 'career politicians' that we jump on the bandwagon of Debra MEDINA, an unknown ex-nurse with zero experience, questionable judgement and loyalties and who worked on the RON PAUL presidential campaign???

Perry leans too far to the left at times for the taste of most of us, but consider this: Texas is in better shape than almost any other state in the union since it's been under Perry's governorship since 2000!

If we're going to kick him out, we'd better be D*MN sure we know just what we're replacing him with!

Just WHO would we replace him with?

Ron paul/truther nutter Medina?

Trecherous Washington RINO Hutchison?*

MUSLIM FAROUK SHAMI?

Or maybe Lib Bill White?

Nominate Medina and we'll surely turn over Texas to White and the 'rats. She CANNOT beat White.

Perhaps in the future a more Conservative candidate will emerge for Texas, but this time around WE HAVE NO CHOICE.

For God's sake, has anybody really looked into her platform- her background? Has this woman even been vetted?

She wants legalized drugs.

She backs gay marriage.

.

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:

"I don't have all of the evidence there, Glenn. I think some very good questions have been raised. In that regard there's some very good arguments and I think the American people have not seen all the evidence there." (When Glen Beck asked her about the 9/11 conspiracy theory)

"It’s a shame isn’t it, that Republicans continue to ignore Hispanics especially here in Texas?’

Oh really, MEDINA? What else do you want?? (or shouldn't I ask?)

"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 it’s 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!

This idea that Beck (or anybody else) sabotaged Medina is absurd. If you can’t answer “did the govt have anything to do with the 9/11 attacks?” you're not be fit to run for dogcatcher.

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. She’s 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. . .

* REMEMBER THIS,TEXANS:

Feds Have Built Only 32 Miles of 700 Mile Double-Border Fence Originally Mandated by Congress

“One reason DHS has been able to do this is an amendment that Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R.-Texas) slipped into an omnibus appropriations bill that Congress passed on December 18, 2007. Hutchison’s amendment put a loophole in the fence law that allowed the secretary of Homeland Security not to build the fence Congress had mandated the year before.”

"As for Beck "outing her." All I heard her say was she "didn't know." Sounded like a pretty honest and "truthful" answer to me."

Since you didnt hear the entire interview, here is a transcript of the conversation when Glenn brought up the 9/11 topic.

GLENN: I have when I said that I was going to have you on, you can't imagine the mail pro and con that I received. There was a theme that ran against you and that is you are a 9/11 Truther.

MEDINA: Well, there's lots of mud that people would like to throw at Debra Medina and make stick. The truth is I'm an everyday ordinary person. I am fighting for the things that our founders fought for, those very basic principles of a constitutional republic, and I'm going to champion people that hold their government accountable, hold me accountable but that's the first time I've heard that accusation. So that's an interesting one.

GLENN: Right. Here's then let me be more frank and ask you the question: Do you believe the government was any way involved with the bringing down of the World Trade Centers on 9/11?

MEDINA: I don't, I don't have all of the evidence there, Glenn. So I don't I'm not in a place, I have not been out publicly questioning that. I think some very good questions have been raised in that regard. There are some very good arguments, and I think the American people have not seen all of the evidence there. So I've not taken a position on that.

GLENN: I think the people of America might think that might be a yes.

MEDINA: Well

GLENN: Do you have advisors, do you have advisor

MEDINA: I'm not going to take a position.

GLENN: That's fine.

MEDINA: These questions have been raised and they are not answered.

GLENN: Do you have advisors that advise you or people that are around you that are 9/11 Truthers?

MEDINA: Not to my knowledge.

GLENN: Would you, if you found out that there were, would you disavow them like the president should have but I mean, he escorted them out in the middle of the night. Van Jones was a 9/11 Truther. If you found out that people around you are advising you were 9/11 Truthers, would you disavow them or allow them to continue to advise you?

MEDINA: Well, you know, that's a federal issue. We're very focused on issues in Texas, on Texas state government. I'm certainly not into mind control or thought policing people.

GLENN: No, that's a pretty big one.

MEDINA: We've got a very diverse team in this state and that's because Texans are standing shoulder to shoulder to support and defend the Constitution. I frankly don't have time, you know, to go through and do psychological testing on people and know every thought or detail that they have.

GLENN: No, I don't think it's psychological at all.

MEDINA: I don't see us having a team of radical individuals, if you will. I think that there are certainly some that are looking, trying to use scare tactics. I you know, are there people?

GLENN: No, I don't think they're scare tactics. Debra, you've answered the question.

MEDINA: Yeah, are there people that have tried to come and be a part of our team

GLENN: Right.

MEDINA: that have not gotten on the team? Absolutely there are. But I can't

GLENN: Yeah, I understand. Debra, you've answered the question.

MEDINA: You know, I don't know. That's so out of context, it's difficult for me to answer.

GLENN: There's

MEDINA: I think it would depend on, you know, how vocal they were about that and how much I thought it colored whatever other talent they brought to the table.

GLENN: Yeah. Okay, Debra, thank you very much. I appreciate it and best of luck to you.

What she stands for? Hmmm. Let's see.. if you loose elections use the legal system to bully your way in (2008 Presidential primary lawsuits). Border security is not in the State's jurisdiction (Morrison Report interview 12/2009). Scold the GOP taking a harder stance on immigration issue because it will hurt their image with Latinos (Latinos and the GOP- Medina). Scold KBH for voting against Sotomayor (Latinos and the GOP).

We can keep going if you like.. How about agreeing with Ron Paul that the roadway system should be privatized (how about that Toll Road opponents). How about Marijuana legalization? How about abortion something that shouldn't be legislated but is a medical issue?

What she did in my opinion was expose the Paulinistas who are the in Tea Movement. As soon she opened her mouth, it caused people like Alex Jones to flood her with Truthers. If she had just shut up or denounced Truthers outright then Alex Jones, Paulinistas and Truthers wouldn’t have a leg to stand on.

I'm not a Perry supporter. I don't live in Texas and I haven't followed the race.

I do, however, know what I heard from the woman's own mouth, and your spinning things won't change that. She said she believes it was possible that our government had a hand in 9/11 and that it should be investigated further. Sheer disgusting insanity.

"

Like Medina, I DON'T KNOW. Do you have the black boxes from any of the planes that crashed into our buildings on 9/11? And do I believe our government will push me under a bus the first chance it gets?
Absolutely.
You?

Understand. I am not afraid of the truth. It amazes me that there are those of you that are. Too many questions remain unanswered about a lot of things to just buy the government's propaganda hook line and sinker. But then you are a Perry supporter aren't you? ;~D

It’s actually not a hit piece.

The last McKinney Tea Party meeting (post Beck) had massive support for Medina. Every single 9-12 group and Tea Party correspondence I get is highly in favor of Medina in this area. They know she is a Constitutional/State Sovereignty candidate.

So, in my region -— North Texas -— she has the support of many in the Tea Party.

"A "truther" and "truth" have nothing to do with each other."

Then why do you Perry supporters pervert another English word in an attempt to slander someone you don't like. If she isn't interested in the truth simply call her a liar. Don't make up new words that are meant to confuse people.

If Medina wants the truth then I stand with her. As I said. I am tired of being lied to and Perry is a liar/rino/socialist.... I'll not vote for a liar. Sorry!

We must never forget that Clinton supported the campaign of Perot .. and we ended up with that POS for 8 years.

Another desperate supporter from the strange following of Debra Medina.

These Ron Paul cultists are flat out strange. 911 is not the only conspiracy theory these people flock to. Also, in my discussions and debates with these types, there seems to be a common thread - all career politicians are evil (except for Ron Paul), tons of libertarian rhetoric, but ask them to put some solutions forward and they can't articulate any actionable ideas. Just lots of strange, paranoid accusations.

For the hardcore supporters, Medina is their own “obomamessiah”. No public record, lots of promises, poor judgement in choosing her words, but we're all suppose to simply resign ourselves in “faith” to this nobody. She says a lot of good things, but then again, so does my nieghbor who was caught killing the neighborhood cats.

Medina is history for refusing to clearly refute the truther claim on Beck’s radio show. Then she compounds the error in judgment by back tracking. She couldn’t come across more disingenuous.

A transcript from Glenn Beck's web site (there's more there on the subject, but this is the gist of it):

MEDINA: Well, there's lots of mud that people would like to throw at Debra Medina and make stick. The truth is I'm an everyday ordinary person. I am fighting for the things that our founders fought for, those very basic principles of a constitutional republic, and I'm going to champion people that hold their government accountable, hold me accountable but that's the first time I've heard that accusation.

MEDINA: Well

GLENN: Do you have advisors, do you have advisor

MEDINA: I'm not going to take a position.

GLENN: That's fine.

MEDINA: These questions have been raised and they are not answered.

All I heard her say was she "didn't know." Sounded like a pretty honest and "truthful" answer to me.

Beck handed her the biggest softball question that could be given to a candidate.

Would the same quality of veritas that you like of her still hold if she would have said "I don't know" to a question asking if the holocaust happened?

I think you’re right. The left has tried this in many places. Too bad they can always find some kook to do their bidding.

motoman, I support Medina because she is a strong Constitutional/State Soverignty candidate... you have a problem with those reasons... or are those paranoid as you imply...

With regards to actions going forward, I believe the nullification of HC, Cap N Trade and any other unconstitutional actions from the federal government is the course for Texas to take. And I happen to think that Medina has a stronger position on those.

Paranoid enough for you. Quit calling names, you lightweight.

New sport for the left. Labeling the Tea Parties with whatever whacko charge or candidate they can dig up.
