  • Medina refuses support of GOP ticket, suggests third-party activity (TX Gov)

    LUBBOCK – Candidate for the Republican nomination for Texas governor Debra Medina, in a Thursday appearance on radio show Pratt on Texas, refused to commit to support the Republican nominee for Texas governor if she is not the Party’s nominee. Medina hinted at there being other candidates on the November ballot she might support. Pratt on Texas host Robert Pratt asked Ms. Medina, the former Wharton County chairwoman, "If you run through this election and are not the nominee of the Republican Party, will you wholeheartedly endorse and support the Party’s nominee or is there some threat of some type...
  • Medina Not The Same Old Brand of "Politics As Usual"

    Perry seems to rely on two familiar slogans: “Keep D.C. out of Texas,” which is his push-back to Kay Bailey Hutchison who, for all intents and purposes, cut her own throat with conservatives when she voted “Yes” for the federal bailout in 2008; and “Texas – We’re better off than the other states.” I’ve never heard Medina deny that Texas is better off than the other states. She does say; however, that Texas could be doing better. You could be doing better. Medina wants to get rid of the state property tax. Any objections? She wants to replace it with...

    We’ve always banned truthers at RedState. Increasingly, we have also banned a number of individuals who think Barack Obama is disqualified from being President because despite the Republican Governor of Hawaii confirming the legitimacy of the Democratic President’s birth origin as a citizen of the United States. Today I want to reaffirm and make it more definitive. If you think 9/11 was an inside job or you really want to debate whether or not Barack Obama is an American citizen eligible to be President, RedState is not a place for you. Birfers and Truthers are not welcome here. Period. End...

    I asked Debra Medina point blank if she is a 9/11 Truther. Medina’s answer was a simple and to the point, “No.” Debra Medina entered the Governor’s race as a David standing before not just Goliath, but two Goliaths: Sitting Governor Rick Perry and longtime U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. Medina didn’t have a chance. Yet here she is today still tilting at windmills and facing down Goliaths. Now a new and powerful foe has come along to oppose Medina in the form of nationally known conservative talk show host Glenn Beck.

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is never one to let the facts get in the way of race-baiting. According to Matthews and Tuesday’s Hardball guests partisan shills, constitutionally guaranteed states’ rights are now racist! < snip > Matthews built his strawman argument, jumping from John Calhoun to Jim Crow, as he equated nullification and interposition to equal rights. Equating the succession movement to the equal rights movement is just nonsensical, Chris. Just because people have used these words doesn’t undermine the validity of the concepts presently at hand. You could almost feel the terror when guest, Wayne Slater of the Dallas Morning...

    Conservative Examiner ^ | 2/11/2010 | Anthony G. Martin
    Explosive information hit the radio airwaves today as it was revealed that Texas gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina appeared to confirm in an interview that she is a so-called '9/11 truther.' The interview was conducted by Glenn Beck on the radio. Debra Medina, right, at a debate with Gov. Rick Perry and Kay Bailey Hutchison (AP Photo/Pool,LM Otero). Immediately the Internet was burning up with quick responses both from Medina supporters and from those who jumped to the conclusion that the candidate had 'outed' herself as part of a movement which believes that the U.S. government had a hand in bringing...

    Debra Medina states: "I have never been involved with the 9-11 truth movement, and there is no doubt in my mind that Muslim terrorists flew planes into those buildings on 9/11. I have not seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way. No one can deny that the events on 9-11 were a tragedy for all Americans and especially those families who lost loved ones."

  • Confirmed: Debra Medina is a 9/11 Truther.

    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...

    A popular U.S. senator and an incumbent governor headline a close race, but a feisty conservative activist is gaining ground. ------------------ Last but by no means least is the most conservative of the bunch, Debra Medina. A Republican Party activist and the former Wharton County Republican Party chair, as well as the former state coordinator for the Campaign for Liberty, Medina is an admitted long shot, but she has seemingly pushed an awful lot of the right buttons with her share of likely voters: A new Rasmussen Reports poll revealed a significant shift to Medina among likely Texas primary voters....

    As the second debate among contenders for the GOP nomination for Governor of Texas was nearing its start Debra Medina issued a press release that really caught my eye. The title of the Press Release contained profanity, so did the body of the Press Release. There in the headline was a term used commonly in some circles throughout Texas. Medina used that term to describe one of Rick Perry’s positions which she called “BS”, only she didn't abbreviate.

    The positioning of the candidates on the stage only served to illustrate the climate of and differences between the candidates themselves. Medina was flanked on either side by the more well-known Texas stars of the Republican Party, Hutchison and Perry. Medina looked surrounded. Medina looked out-gunned. Before the night was over Hutchison and Perry should have been ducking for cover, unfortunately I don’t think either of their egos would ever allow them to admit that they got their political backsides stomped by a registered nurse from Wharton, but that is exactly what they got.

    There have been many invitations to participate in debates and forums coming through our (Debra Medina's) office. The public certainly deserves to hear from each of the candidates. Unfortunately, we’re receiving multiple reports that each time we confirm, the governor cancels. It seems that Rick Perry has learned, over the years, that in order to protect his incumbent status he must be in total control of who he is on stage with and holds the media hostage to his demands.

    "I am urging Governor Perry today to call the Texas Legislature into special session. I am encouraging Attorney General Abbot to begin the work necessary to obtain an injunction against the IRS and the 111 other federal agencies empowered in this legislation to further embed Washington D.C. in our lives. These actions are critical to insuring that Texans are free to make our own decisions about healthcare” stated Medina.

    Conservative Republican candidate for Governor of Texas - Debra Medina - writes an op/ed taking Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison to task for her longstanding opposition to pro-life issues. Medina says in part, "Conservative and pro-choice rarely fall in the same sentence, unless you’re referring to “conservative” gubernatorial candidate Kay Bailey Hutchison, of course. A long time Washington insider and clear adversary on pro-life issues, Senator Hutchison has had ample opportunity to rally against abortion, and she has failed."

    In a world moving more and more rapidly towards globalization, perhaps we’d do well to review exactly what insures freedom. What is it that makes one free? What sets a free man apart from one enslaved? Do we still hold these truths to be self evident, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed?” Surely, if it is government’s job...

    It’s been over a year since Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) energized libertarians with his presidential candidacy, but the movement he inspired continues to ripple across the landscape. In at least a handful of House, Senate and gubernatorial contests across the country, former Paul supporters have emerged as credible contenders — or possible spoilers — ensuring that his message, once relegated to the fringes of Republican politics, continues to be heard. Paul began the 2008 presidential campaign as an afterthought but quickly won the attention of a previously dismissive GOP establishment and news media by generating intense grass-roots and online...
