    Brian's Right Perspective ^ | December 26, 2011 | Brian
    As if there are any more reasons to show that Ron Paul should not be the GOP Presidential candidate, there is this bit from 2008 in which Paul endorses four(!) candidates for President, including the Marxist whack-job Cynthia McKinney and Ralph Nader. How unhinged to you have to be, intellectually, to endorse not only four people, but four whom also hold diametrically opposing views on the role of government. This alone shows that Ron Paul is not a serious thinker. In fact it shows him to be a reactionary flame thrower, willing to completely abandon principles when he doesn't get...

    Filed on appeal almost a year ago, a legal challenge against Barack Obama remains lurking in the hallways and offices of the Alabama Supreme Court, where at least two justices already have indicated an interest in the radioactive issue of Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president. Court officials confirmed to WND today that the case brought by attorney Larry Klayman, who founded Freedom Watch, and most recently hit the headlines for a successful fight against Obama’s program run by the National Security Agency to spy on Americans, remains on the docket. It’s been fully briefed, but the justices haven’t...
  • Mitch McConnell Attacks Conservative Group for Endorsing Primary Opponent

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign spokeswoman Allison Moore attacked the Senate Conservatives Fund for endorsing McConnell’s primary challenger Matt Bevin on Friday. “Matt Bevin now has the dubious honor of standing with a self-serving D.C. fundraising group that made its name by recruiting and promoting unelectable candidates that ensured Barack Obama a majority in the Senate,” Moore said in a statement to the Washington Post. “They clearly care less about Kentuckians than they do about their reputation for supporting laughably bad candidates. Now they can add a New England bailout recipient who claims he went to MIT to their roster of...

    Last week, the Kentucky businessman announced he would challenge Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell in next year’s Republican Senate primary. This will be Bevin’s first entry into the political rodeo. But the longtime Republican has often been a frustrated party member. “I have a Peroutka for President T-shirt from 2004 in my drawer,” Bevin tells National Review Online in an interview at his Louisville home. He’s referring to Constitution-party candidate Michael Peroutka, for whom he cast his ballot in the general election rather than George W. Bush. “In ’04, I was just so fed up with the choices that we...

    Howard Phillips, one of the founders of the New Right movement in the 1970s, died on April 20. The cause was dementia. He died in his home. He was 72. In 1974, he founded the Conservative Caucus. This was a year after Ed Fuelner and Paul Weyrich founded the Heritage Foundation. In 1974, Weyrich started the Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress, which later became the Free Congress Foundation. All three organizations were reactions to Richard Nixon's increasingly mainstream Republican move to the left. A fourth organization, Gun Owners of America, began in 1975. Nixon had hired Phillips...

  • Liberal, secular 'infidels' must be prosecuted, says Brotherhood preacher

    Liberals, modernists and secularists are infidels and must be brought to trial for abandoning Islam, according to an ultra-conservative preacher in the Muslim Brotherhood. In a video posted on the YouTube channel of the privately owned newspaper Al-Shorouk newspaper on Sunday, preacher Wagdy Ghoneim said: “If they do not repent, the judge must apply the penalty for apostasy. “If anyone tells you that he is liberal, tell him directly that he is infidel.” Earlier this month, Ghoneim caused controversy after issuing a fatwa — an Islamic religious edict — that said joining the Constitution Party, led by Nobel laureate Mohamed...

    On September 4, 2012, Mitt Romney may have lost Virginia and the Presidential election. But Republicans could still win easily. This election will turn on two questions Bill Clinton is pounding on: Who caused the disastrous economic collapse in 2007 and 2008? Will putting a Republican back in the White House give us another economic crash? Republican strategists and consultants have been running away from these questions. Bill Clinton passionately blamed Republicans at the Democrat National Convention. Republicans are aiming for “just enough to squeak by.” But “good enough” is almost never good enough. Now on September 4, Virgil Goode...

    Former congressman Virgil Goode Jr. has qualified for the presidential ballot in Virginia, the State Board of Elections ruled Tuesday, adding a potential obstacle to Republican Mitt Romney’s hopes of winning the pivotal state. The state Republican party has already challenged the eligibility of Goode, who is the Constitution Party’s nominee, and could still get him knocked off the ballot.

    ...Virgil Goode has long supported a bill to audit the Federal Reserve, which recently cleared the House. He advocates “currency that is real and backed by gold or silver.” Goode champions “fair and equitable opportunity, but it’s up to you to use it. Government cannot ensure equal results because every individual differs;” An ardent proponent of balancing the budget, our deficits Goode insists, stem from “spending.” “Taxes should be simple and fair … I’m not for increasing income taxes; if we even have an income tax.” The candidate laments “too much federal involvement in our lives” offering as an example...

    The Constitution Party has abandoned its bid to get its presidential ticket on Pennsylvania's election ballot. James Clymer, the longtime chairman of the state Constitution Party and the national party's 2012 candidate for vice president, said Tuesday that the party agreed to withdraw its petition amid a court challenge backed by the state Republican Party. Clymer acknowledged that many of the thousands of signatures were invalidated during two days of review...

    While many on the right fear that Constitution Party presidential candidate Virgil Goode might just draw enough votes in his native Virginia to tip the Old Dominion’s 14 electoral votes from Mitt Romney to Barack Obama, the former six-term congressman made it clear he doesn’t care. Goode, in fact, feels that “in many ways, for conservatives, it might be better to have Obama as president next year rather than Romney.” The 65-year-old Goode spoke to Human Events last week as he and his supporters were in the process of gathering the 10,000 signatures they need to submit before the Aug....

    Presidential candidate Virgil Goode, speaking in Martinsville on Tuesday, cited the need for significant, across-the-board cuts in federal spending to balance the budget; congressional term limits; repeal of Obama health care reform; tougher immigration policies; and reigning in federal secondary education regulations. Goode, the Constitution Party’s candidate for president, addressed the Martinsville Rotary Club at its dinner meeting at the Virginia Museum of Natural History. About 20 people attended. Goode, 65, of Rocky Mount, was in Virginia’s Senate from 1973 to 1996. He then served six terms in Congress before he lost his seat to Democrat Tom Perriello in 2008....

    While all of the mainstream press focuses upon the phony horse race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney for president, many Americans may be surprised to find that they will have several choices on their ballots in November. One of those other choices is the Constitution Party candidate Virgil H. Goode, Jr. and his vice presidential running mate, attorney Jim Clymer. Labeled “Mr. Independent” by his home newspaper in Virginia, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, former six-term Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode has demonstrated a willingness to change parties when his principles did not comport with his party. Goode was elected to the...

    Virgil H. Goode Jr., a Republican from Rocky Mount who represented the 5th District in Congress for six terms, has joined the conservative Constitution Party - but he says that doesn’t mean he’s quitting the GOP. “I don’t think they’re mutually exclusive,” Goode said. Goode was the keynote speaker the Constitution Party’s spring National Committee banquet Friday in Minneapolis. At the event, Goode paid the party’s $35 membership fee. Goode said that he has not quit the Republican Party and is current on his membership dues with the Franklin County GOP. The Constitution Party, Goode said, has staked out several...

    Listen to interview at: http://www.wnd.com/2012/05/a-goode-plan-to-save-american-jobs/?cat_orig=money As President Obama and likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney remain locked in a virtual dead heat, is there any room for a third party to make a statement or even be competitive in 2012? That’s the hope of the Constitution Party and its nominee, Virgil Goode. Goode says Obama’s spending is completely out of control but Republican proposals are also not good enough because he says the budget needs to be balanced now and not in a few years or a couple of generations from now. “I would submit a balanced budget if elected president,...

    Virgil Goode said this afternoon that he’s won ballot access in 17 states as the Constitution Party’s presidential nominee – but Virginia isn’t yet one of them. The former Virginia senator and 5th District congressman said he’s aiming to be on the ballot in 40 states on Election Day, and more if possible. Four years ago, the Constitution Party appeared on 37 ballots in the presidential race. Goode said he’s already won ballot access in Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Utah, Wyoming and other states. In Virginia, he needs to secure at least 10,000 signatures from qualified voters, including at...
