[Gov. Rick] Perry enjoys envied record as a fundraiser
Houston Chronicle ^ | Juy 3, 2011 | RICHARD S. DUNHAM, Washington Bureau

Posted on 07/04/2011 3:32:39 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

WASHINGTON — Rick Perry is the 100 million dollar man of Texas politics.

Over the past decade, he has been a political money machine, raising more than $100 million for three gubernatorial campaigns and another $50 million for GOP candidates as chairman of the Republican Governors Association in 2007-2008.

But the Texas governor's fundraising prowess will be tested as never before if he runs for president in 2012. While he's raised more campaign cash than anybody not named Bush in Texas history, Perry faces different rules and greater demands should he set his sights on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

"In order to have a realistic chance of winning the Republican primary, Perry will need at least $200 to $250 million in the form of direct contributions or independent expenditures on his behalf," said Mark P. Jones, a political science professor at Rice University.

Perry has a host of assets that could make him a strong candidate for the GOP nomination: An enviable record of Texas job creation during a roiling recession, a consistent conservative record on economic and social issues alike, and an undefeated record as a political candidate.

But one longtime Perry supporter and donor says the governor has to answer "yes" to two questions before he says "yes" to a presidential candidacy: Is he willing to undergo the grueling demands of a campaign, from the nearly 24/7 schedule to the media scrutiny of every aspect of your life? And is he willing and able to raise the money to compete first with Republican Mitt Romney, a wealthy businessman with a nationwide fundraising machine, then with President Barack Obama, who broke every record for presidential fundraising in 2008 and is aiming to top the $1 billion mark in 2012?...........

In anticipation of the usual comments, I did a search for the 2010 contributions of HEB and Perry Homes and found:

2010 With the notable exception of Lamar Smith (R), mostly Democrat giving, including a PAC contribution for Sen Chuck Schumer (D-NY), also gave to Bill White (D) who lost in his 2010 gubenatorial challenge to Rick Perry – DIDN'T FIND Rick Perry: Charles Butt [HEB CEO] Political Campaign Contributions 2010 Election Cycle [HEB is the largest private company (grocer) in Texas]

2010 With the exception of $1K to Shelia Jackson-Lee and Gene Green -- both democrats, ALL GOP giving but DIDN'T FIND Rick Perry: Bob Perry Political Campaign Contributions 2010 Election Cycle -- Bobby Jack Perry (Bob J. Perry); Houston, Texas homebuilder, owner of Perry Homes, and major contributor to a number of 527 groups: Swift Vets and POWs for Truth and the Economic Freedom Fund. ---- In 2010, Perry donated $7 million to the 527 group American Crossroads -- largest single donation that the organization has received to date -- they primarily work to elect Republican legislators; is a member of the Heritage Club. Donated to Tom DeLay’s Texans for a Republican Majority and to Tom DeLay’s defense. In 2006, Perry was the largest political donor in Texas. 2006 donations included nearly $400,000 to the campaign of GOP Governor Rick Perry (no relation).

On a side note, HEB CEO Charles Butt is a piker compared to Perry Homes CEO Bill Perry's giving.

JUST OUT:

July 4, 2011: [Texas] Rule requiring drivers to prove citizenship now law "As the House early last month debated a must-pass finance bill, one member slipped in language that puts into law a controversial Texas Department of Public Safety policy requiring driver's license applicants to show they're in the country legally.

The amendment, added by Rep. Jim Pitts, R-Waxahachie, to the education funding bill legislators needed to balance the state budget had originally been included in Senate Bill 9, the so-called "sanctuary cities" bill that failed in the special session. It also had appeared in an omnibus homeland security bill by Sen. Tommy Williams, R-The Woodlands, that died in the regular session.

The new law approved last Tuesday makes some tweaks to a 2008 DPS policy that prevents illegal immigrants from getting a driver's license and created a special license for temporary visitors. The rules require Texans applying for or renewing their license to show they are citizens or are in the country legally.

By putting it into law the state potentially undermines an ongoing lawsuit that argues DPS doesn't have authority to check legal status..........."

he forced (mandated, against their will, without informed
consent) Gardasil onto for $6000 to him?

The HPV vaccine was always Opt-Out.

90 days after the EO, Perry let stand legislation undoing the EO.

You are not truthful in any way. Is Perry?

It was NOT ‘opt out’ until the Legislature forced
THAT on the RINO-Gardasil-Perry who opposed ‘opt out’.

No, Gardasil Perry FORCED it on chaste children
for BIG PHARMA and for his $6000 (plus stock profit, right?)

You are not honest:

Here is the bill:
“RP65 – Relating to the immunization of young women from the cancer-causing Human Papillomavirus.
Friday, February 02, 2007 • Executive Order
BY THE GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF TEXAS
Rules.The Health and Human Services Executive Commissioner
shall adopt rules that mandate the age appropriate vaccination of all female children for HPV prior to admission to the sixth grade.”

The definition of mandate is a command by a person,
group, or organization (the ‘mandator’) to another
(the ‘mandatary’) to act in a particular way, or here
to ingest, inject, imbed a poison or other substance
they do not want and for which informed consent was
never taken.

Remember when we were young and fit! (Maybe I'm just talking about myself!).

A nice looking West Texas boy a couple of years from graduation.

Rick Perry 1969 TX A&M Yearbook, Aggieland

Perry attended Texas A&M University, where he was a member of the Corps of Cadets, a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity and one of A&M's five yell leaders (a popular Texas A&M tradition analogous to male cheerleaders). He interned with the Southwestern Company during the summer time as a door-to-door book salesman where he honed his communication skills. Perry graduated in 1972 with a degree in animal science. While at Texas A&M University Perry successfully completed a static line parachute jump at Ags Over Texas (a United States Parachute Association dropzone), the dropzone that was then in operation at Coulter Field (KCFD) in Bryan, Texas, just north of Texas A&M (in College Station, Texas).

Upon graduation, he was commissioned in the United States Air Force, completed pilot training and flew C-130 tactical airlift in the United States, the Middle East, and Europe until 1977. He left the Air Force with the rank of captain, returned to Texas and went into business farming cotton with his father.

In 1982, Perry married Anita Thigpen, his childhood sweetheart whom he had known since elementary school. They have two children, Griffin and Sydney. Source

Gov. Rick Perry participates in ceremonies at Camp Mabry to redesignate the 49th Armored Division as the 36th Infantry Division. The former 49th Armored Division, which consists of approximately 12,000 soldiers, makes up almost two-thirds of the Texas National Guard. The division's redesignation as the 36th Infantry Division is part of the Texas Army National Guard's transition from a heavy armored force to a more versatile infantry force.

C-130 Rick Perry: He flew the world before politics

Rank: Retired as a captain

Hometown: Haskell

Crew job: C-130 aircraft commander

Served in the Air Force: 1972 to 1977

Dyess AFB tour: March 4, 1974, to Feb. 28, 1977

His story: Way back before he was governor of Texas, Rick Perry had two choices as a young member of the Air Force.

He could either follow his dream and work toward becoming an instructor pilot in the sleek T-38, or he could fly the hulking C-130, planes that affectionately were referred to as "trash haulers" by Perry and his cohorts.

"It was one of the great adventures of my life," Perry said. "I had a fairly pedestrian life until I was 23 years old."

Perry could count on one hand the number of trips he had taken out of his home state by the time he graduated from Texas A&M University, but everything changed when he joined the Air Force.

Flying C-130s, Perry lived in Germany and Saudi Arabia. He flew in Central and South America, North Africa and all over Europe.

"I saw all of these different types of governments and I made the connections to how the people acted and looked, and it became abundantly clear to me that, at that particular point in time, that America was this very unique place and that our form of democracy was very rare," Perry said. " ... That was the greatest gift I received from my years of being in the military, and they really shaped my outlook on the rest of my life."....

Barack Obama, the Democratic Party, Unions and the MSM are going to do everything they can to make the word "conservatism" scare nervous voters away from the GOP; the Left is already saying our candidates are nuts, mean-spirited, racists, rich, selfish people; that Republicans across the country are blocking tax increases and demanding cuts in entitlements and services and hurting the economy on purpose to make Obama look bad. AND THEY ARE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE -- GIVING SAME TALKING POINTS. They have not dropped the ridiculous charge--drumbeat--that the Tea Party is extreme and hateful and racist.

So, what do we do to counter this 24/7 attack on good Americans who love their country and want what is best for everyone?

Rick Perry has been giving a talk on the 10th Amendment, explaining how when Federal controls are loosened on states, those state economies take off as businesses gear up, that jobs will come and the teachers will be paid and the roads will be built, etc.

Rick Perry's common sense 10th Amendment - the power back to the states solution to take our country back - state by state: "Don't spend all the money! -- Have a fair and predictable tax and regulatory policy! -- Have a legal system that does not allow for over suing and makes [lawsuit] loser pay!"

I think this is a perfect appeal to the country -- to an electorate who does not follow this as closely as we do. Of course Perry's ideas are broader than this but that is the essence (and an essence is like a sound-bite).

As Rick Perry says (in the link) "Texas has led but it’s been a hell of a struggle against Washington D.C. – Government must trust the people but this administration does not trust the people."

Give it up. It appears some will blindly ignore FACTS, to support their “Chosen One”. Somehow sounds too familiar to last Presidental election. The information about Perry’s big talk but no, or opposite, action is well documented and plain as day. I just don’t understand this blind devotion to him, unless one is closely related, or can get benefits from his election, or is in love.

Has RINO Perry addressed this? His PerryBOTS have not.

CDC: "As of June 22, 2011, approximately 35 million doses of Gardasil®
were distributed in the U.S. and VAERS received a total
of 18,727 reports of adverse events

As of June 22, 2011 there have been a total 68 VAERS reports
of death among those who have received Gardasil®."


"Gardasil Causes 400 Percent More Deaths than Other Common Vaccine
A federal report has concluded that the human papillomavirus (HPV)
vaccine Gardasil has a 400 percent higher rate of adverse effects
than another comparable vaccine, the Menactra anti-meningitis shot. "


“Foaming at the mouth, shock, seizures, paralysis,
coma-even death have been reported
as a result of taking the vaccine Gardasil from Merck ... “

Perry’s vaccination order still stoking fires

AUSTIN — Blowback continued at the Capitol on Wednesday over Gov. Rick Perry’s order mandating
that schoolgirls be vaccinated against a sexually transmitted disease linked to cervical cancer.

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/special/07/legislature/4528909.html

Critics rip Perry’s vaccine mandate
Governor rejects opponents’ calls to reverse order

AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry stood firm Monday against a political firestorm generated by his
order that sixth-grade girls be inoculated against a sexually transmitted virus linked to cervical cancer.

Social conservatives from Texas to Washington called on Perry to reverse his order making
Texas the first state to require the vaccine, saying the mandate makes sex seem permissible
and that parents should be the ones to decide whether to immunize their daughters.
And several Texas lawmakers expressed outrage at Perry for circumventing the legislative process.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/26/us/26texas.html

The vaccine, Gardasil, is manufactured by Merck, which was represented in Austin by the
lobbyist Mike Toomey, who was chief of staff for Mr. Perry from 2002 to 2004.

Replace Rick Perry with conservative legislators, and you might have some credibility with that statement. The illegal alien problem is twice as worse as it was when W left office in 2001. As far as I am concerned that is Perry's legacy.

Hi, gunny. Good question.

And what is the actual net benefit of the treatment?

The NET Benefit of a medical treatment is
NET BENEFIT = (Risk with NO treatment)*(the net benefit of the treatment) - (The risk of harm).

The serious CDC-reported side effects from Gardasil appear to be
at least 0.054%, with a death rate from Gardasil of 0.0002%

Those PerryBOTs are relentless. They all show up one day, posting 10-50 stories a day, start talking Perry/Palin, they seem to be lying about a lot of stuff, a whole bunch of really obnoxious behavior. It’s not like there was 1 of them then 2, there were 5 of them pushing Perry story after Perry story, pinging each other.

For me, it’s just easier to make sure many pro Perry threads get at least a sampler of Perry’s background, which includes not only the forced vacccinations, but the trans-texas corridor and bilderberg, but also the close ties to Karl Rove. It was Karl Rove who got Perry to switch to Republican. If anyone has been paying attention at all recently, Karl Rove tends to criticize some of our fine Conservative candidates (like Christine O’Donnell), and side with RINOs like Mike Castle.

Rick Perry’s entire argument seems to be
1) I’m not as bad as Obama
2) Texas is not as Liberal as New York or California, so there has been economic growth.

It’s almost like, ok, assume all Republicans except Rick Perry have ceased to exist, now, who are you going to vote for?

And what’s this “tea party” stuff with Perry. I can’t imagine real tea parties supporting Rick Perry if they knew the facts. Forced Vaccinations just doesn’t seem “tea party” to me. Yes, there are NWO Republicans, I’m not saying that Perry won’t get votes, but I just don’t see the tea party embracing a Bilderberg, globalist, one world goverment type. Establishment might be able to stomach that evil stuff, but that’s not tea party.

Proven track record:

-Texas gained 70,000 jobs while the nation as a whole lost 122,000 jobs.

-He has secured more FORTUNE 500 companies for Texas than any other state. (ie, read business friendly)

The above is what is important in THIS day and age.

On Michele Bachmann announcement day, a tea party nod to Rick Perry “Washington - First, a disclaimer: The poll was completely unscientific. Some 160 tea partyers from around the country had gathered at the Washington headquarters of FreedomWorks, a conservative group that trains tea partyers in political organizing and advocacy. With reporters watching, the assembled activists were asked for a show of hands on the Republican presidential candidates.

The winner: Texas Gov. Rick Perry. He isn’t a candidate yet, and it’s not certain he ever will be. But Governor Perry’s “victory” is just one small indication that, were he to run, Perry would start with the goodwill of the GOP’s most energetic wing. …..

Who is your GOP Primary candidate Diogenesis?

I don’t believe you’ve ever said.

Perhaps I’ve missed it.

Please let us know.

THANK YOU for posting that.

This FAKE TEA PARTY is ROMNEY-spawed?

Is Gardasil-Perry just another Trojan Horse for RomneyCARE
and Romney? Yes, your post suggests it.

'Fake-badge' Milt Romney and his minime Bill Hudak
are now linked to the creation
of fake 'Tea Party's, including the very one
which attacked Gov. Palin from Texas (see post 11)

A Romney spawned Tea Party that supports Perry?

Interesting.

Great pic! Let’s hope in 2012 that the dems are bagged like those doves lined up on that tailgate.

Those PerryBOTs are relentless. They all show up one day, posting 10-50 stories a day, start talking Perry/Palin, they seem to be lying about a lot of stuff, a whole bunch of really obnoxious behavior. It’s not like there was 1 of them then 2, there were 5 of them pushing Perry story after Perry story, pinging each other.

The only "pinging" I've seen is from anti-Perry posters who need to call for Help!

How many children were forced to receive Gardasil? Grand total?

Correct me if I'm wrong but it sounds as if "forcing" even a small number to take it is okay with you? That Perry's EO contained the word mandate in the first place says he never intended for there to be an option - he would have said so.

Still Perry instead of Obama is infinitely better.
