    Tiahrt for Congress ^ | Patricia A. Stoneking
    Patricia Stoneking, President of the KSRA, said of Tiahrt, "As a member of both the Kansas Legislature and the United States Congress, you have demonstrated a loyal and unwavering commitment to defend the Second Amendment rights of all law abiding citizens. We are proud to boast that while serving in the Kansas State Senate you introduced the first concealed carry legislation and began a crusade that lasted fourteen years until your dream came to fruition as you inspired those who came after you to continue your legacy." Upon hearing of the KSRA endorsement, Todd Novascone, fourth campaign manager and chief...

    "Before I started managing Todd Tiahrt’s campaigns in 2001, I managed Jerry Moran’s first Congressional campaign in 1996. There are few people who have a better perspective on the differences between the two candidates for U.S. Senate than I. Congressman Moran is a nice man, and he has a great family. However, having seen both men under pressure and watching how they approach their jobs, I know Kansans and conservatives across the country need Todd Tiahrt in the U.S. Senate."

    •Tiahrt has never once voted to increase federal taxes. But Moran voted against elements of the George W. Bush tax cuts. •Moran voted against authorizing military tribunals to try suspected terrorists and against Bush’s efforts to wiretap suspected foreign terrorists communicating within the U.S. On the other hand, Tiafrt led the charge within the House Appropriations Committee to block Obama from moving detainees from Guantanamo Bay to the U.S. mainland. •Moran voted for federal legislation that effectively removes requirements for citizenship verification for those receiving government health care. Such votes explain why one voting index shows a stark difference between...

    New poll shows Moran,Tiahrt tied in Kansas GOP Senate battle The Republican Senate contest in Kansas could be much tighter than recent polling has suggested. Republican Congressmen Todd Tiahrt and Jerry Moran are “statistically tied,” according to an internal Tiahrt campaign poll. The telephone survey this week of 400 likely Republican primary voters showed Moran ahead, 37 percent to 34 percent, with 26 percent undecided. The margin of error was 4.9 percent. Campaigns often don’t release internal poll results. It should be noted that they are undertaken by partisan polling operations and should be viewed in that context. “We feel...

    "Rove is the second leading Republican leader to criticize Moran. Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert has repeatedly knocked Moran, saying "he was never there." "I mean, he’d always be out there grabbing a headline," Hastert said, "but he was never there in my experience of doing the hard work to make things happen.” In the interview, Rove wa particulary harsh on Moran for how the congressman approached a 2001 bill on trade promotion authority that Rove said was aimed at knocking down trade barriers and would have helped Moran's rural western Kansas district. Rove said Moran tried to cut a...

    WaPo ^ | May 27, 2010 | Carol D. Leonnig
    A congressional ethics office asked the Justice Department on Thursday to review evidence it found suggesting that companies are providing campaign cash to lawmakers for no-bid contracts, and consider a criminal probe. The Office of Congressional Ethics investigation focused on companies that were clients of the once powerful lobby firm the PMA Group and sought earmarked contracts from lawmakers who sat on the House Appropriations committee. The referral was an end-run around the House ethics committee, which earlier this year declined to investigate the matter as the OCE recommended and said it found no substantiation that lawmakers were engaged...
  • Too much: Suspected Illegal Immigrant Hits MA Rep. Mike Moran And laughs

    A Bay State Rep gets rear-ended by a suspected illegal alien and the perp responds by saying, come and get me copper. In any other state this is the kind of story that would come down on Governor Deval Patrick like a ton of bricks. After all, he’s the guy that made it illegal to check for illegal, you know what I’m saying. But the best part of this story is the absolute arrogance on the part of the alleged perp.

    ...And so, a drunk illegal fugitive from a mariachi band with a blood alcohol level of .25 going 60mph rear-ended a state official’s car. And when the police tried to explain to Naranjo what kind of trouble he was in, he just laughed, understanding exactly how toothless Mass immigration laws are, replied that he was going back to “my country, Mexico. Nothing is going to happen to me, man.”

When Jason challenges Moran on the issue, it gets ugly very quickly.." Mattera is the author of the NYT Best Sellers "Obama Zombies". See his page for details.

    No American Should Remain Silent The 9/11 mosque Dar Al Hijrah will hold its annual fundraising dinner on Saturday at the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church. Among the special guests are former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, Congressman Gerry Connolly and Congressman Jim Moran. After receiving a briefing paper from the Center for Security Policy, the names of Senator James Webb and Virginia Delegate Kaye Kory have been removed from the dinner’s program. The Dar Al Hijrah mosque has been the focal point for many who participated in the cowardly attack on the Pentagon and in recent terrorist acts at...

    New Poll Shows Jim Moran Is Vulnerable The Tarrance Group recently conducted a poll for our campaign of likely voters in Virginia’s 8th District that makes two things clear: (1) Jim Moran is vulnerable in 2010; and (2) I am the Republican candidate who can beat him. First, our poll found that Northern Virginians are clearly tiring of Jim Moran’s ethical lapses and offensive statements, and they are ready to see him go. Specifically, only 38% of likely voters believe that Jim Moran deserves to be re-elected. The plurality of likely voters, 40%, believe that it is time to give...

    Keith Ellison, widely hailed as America's first Muslim congressman, could more accurately be described as CAIR and Hamas' man in Congress. Congressman Ellison has been a regular presence at CAIR fundraisers and at pro-Hamas rallies in the United States. As a former member of Farrakhan's Nation of Islam , Ellison has enough anti-semitic and Islamist credentials to satisfy anyone, and had expressed openly anti-semitic beliefs in the past. Since Ellison got his start with CAIR , his attempt to provide support for Hamas is completely unsurprising. Both Hamas and CAIR are projects of the Muslim Brotherhood, which also helped...

    Over at Old Dominion Watchdog, Paige Winfield is reporting that long-time Northern Virginia Dem representative Jim Moran may become the poster boy for the kind of lawmaker Americans are getting fed up with. Matthew Berry, one of three GOP foes in this year’s race, charges Moran “has received over $80,000 this year in campaign contributions from executives, PACs, and lobbyists of companies for which he has requested earmarks totaling over $50 million. Such donations represent over 20 percent of the money raised this year by Moran.” Winfield says Berry is right: Berry is correct that Moran received more than $80,000...

    Today, I am officially announcing my candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives in Virginia’s 8th District. Twelve months ago, I never would have imagined that I would be taking this step; my life’s ambition has not been to hold elected office. But over the course of the last year, I have watched with growing dismay as the federal budget deficit has hit a record $1.4 trillion, unemployment has reached ten percent, and Congress has moved ever closer to passing a disastrous health-care reform bill. In Washington today, it sometimes seems that the answer to every problem is more, more,...
