Texas Governor Rick Perry indicted by Democrats [Dem M.O as with Gov Walker Gov. Christie]
The American Thinker ^ | August 16, 2014 | Rick Moran

From the film "All the President's Men":

Deep Throat: The people behind all of this were frightened of Muskey and that's what got him destroyed. They wanted to run against McGovern. Look who they're running against. The bugged offices, they followed people, false press leaks, passed fake letters... they canceled Democratic campaign rallies, they investigated Democratic private lives, they planted spies, they stole documents... and now don't tell me that all of this was the work of one Donald Segretti.

The source was talking about the Republican party of Richard Nixon. Yesterday, the third major candidate for the GOP presidential nomination was smeared by a fake scandal.

First, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and the ginned up outrage at a bridge closing. Then, Democrats went after Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker And now Rick Perry, who ran afoul of the Travis County political machine by threatening to veto an appropriation for the Public Integrity Unit, is the target of a trumped up indictment.

They were terrified of Christie, and Christie has been severely damaged. They were worried about Scott Walker and now Walker has been tainted. They watched as Rick Perry began to rise from the ashes of 2012 and have now tried to strike him down.

This is the Democratic party of Barack Obama....

yeah, let’s not saddle Rick Perry and Scott Walker with Christie in any way, shape or form. Christie is a vindictive Jersey thug - just slightly less liberal than most of them.

Don’t forget Sarah. She was not indicted but the lawsuits and harrassment had the same intent. More was to come.

Is there a legal defense fund for Perry?

good point, indeed. Thanks to that screwy Alaska law, being governor up there is a terrible gig for anyone trying to fight the corruption.

This is the Democratic party of Barack Obama: if you wanna win, create a scandal

DURBIN COLLUDES W/ LOIS LERNER IRS disgrace, Lois Lerner, once held a position at the Federal Election Commission. She was helpful to Senate candidate Dick Durbin (Dem-Ill). Lerner used her FEC position to help save Durbin’s US Senate seat back in 1996.

Lerner used her FEC govt position and tax dollars to conduct a bogus inquisition into Durbin's opponent for alleged election law violations ....creating a shady charge against Durbin's opponent. And it worked. Dicky triumphed and was returned to the Senate.

Fast forward to 2014---Dicky Durbin's running again---considered a shoo-in. But he should start worrying. As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act:

QUOTING OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have choice of doctor.”

Repeated over and over ---- with the "presidential promise" that every American would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.

SEN. RICHARD DURBIN SALUTES SMARTLY: “We Democrats believe — and we stand by this — if you like your current health insurance plan, you will be able to keep it, plain and simple, straightforward.” (Sen. Durbin, Congressional Record, S.6401, 6/10/09)




August 1, 2012---Mitt Romney presented one enormous problem for the Obama campaign team---all of them kingpins in Chicagoland criminal politics: No Romney divorce records. They were hot to get their hands on Romney's tax records for the past 25 years. They need something to "pick through, distort and lie about" -- (luckily Lois Lerner was on-call).

Obama's usual campaign method, used in 100 percent of his races, has been to pry into the private records of his opponents. Obama became a U.S. senator only by virtue of his top aid---made-man David Axelrod's former employer was the Chicago Tribune---handy for ripping open court-sealed divorce records of Obama's two principal opponents.

One month before the 2004 Democratic primary for the US Senate, Obama was down in the polls, about to lose to Blair Hull, a multimillionaire securities trader. But then the Chicago Tribune leaked the claim that Hull's second ex-wife, Brenda Sexton, had sought an order of protection against him during their 1998 divorce proceedings.

Those records were under seal, but as The New York Times noted: "The Tribune reporter who wrote the original piece later acknowledged in print that the Obama camp had 'worked aggressively behind the scenes' to push the story." Many people said Axelrod had "an even more significant role -- that he leaked the initial story."

Both Hull and his ex-wife opposed releasing their sealed divorce records, but they finally relented in response to the media's hysteria -- 18 days before the primary. Hull was forced to spend four minutes of a debate detailing the abuse allegation in his divorce papers, explaining that his ex-wife "kicked me in the leg and I hit her shin to try to get her to not continue to kick me."

W/ a substantial lead just a month before the primary, Hull's campaign collapsed with the chatter about his divorce. Obama sailed to the front of the pack and won the primary. Hull finished third with 10 percent of the vote.

My theory is that this only happened because of Holder helping the DA in Texas AFTER Governor Perry put the national guard on the border that Holder and the President do NOT WANT secured. Yeah, the lefties in Texas were working on it a while but it was going NOWHERE until now.

This is different from Christie. Rick Perry clearly had the authority and the moral highground to demand the DA’s resignation and also to veto funding. He also has the right to warn in advance of a veto. The Demshave nothing and now the video of a fat azz lush strapped to a rolling chair with a spit mask on are going viral.

If Rick is smart he will figure out how to incorporate some of that DUI video into his presidential campaign ads.

I look for this case to get quietly dismissed and soon.

It’s a political scam, just like Tom Delay’s charges that were reversed. I bet the outcome is much different.

No one has mentioned that Perry made enemies in the legal profession, in Texas, by demanding that the Dean of the UT law school step down following an admissions scandal.

Every prosecutor in Texas, that graduated from UT law school was out to get retribution.
