    Sarah Palin took to the campaign trail today in a final push before election day, headlining a rally for Republican Senate candidate John Raese. "I'm seeing all these 'mountain mamas and wondering, 'Mountain mamas? Is that anything close to the 'mama grizzlies'?'" the former Alaska governor asked. "I've been traveling a lot of country roads these last few months especially, trying to get people to understand how important it is that we do elect the right people on Nov. 2 to turn this country around," Palin said...

    If Dirty Harry wrote books instead of blowing away bad guys, he would have written "Trickle Up Poverty." Thankfully, Michael Savage wrote it instead. Instead of wielding a .44 magnum Smith & Wesson and cleaning up the streets of San Francisco like Dirty Harry, Mr. Savage banged away on the keyboard with magnum force and wrote a conservative magnum manifesto in "Trickle Up Poverty." While relaxing in my deer blind waiting to put an arrow through the pump station of an ultra-alert Texas whitetail deer, I read Mr. Savage's new book. Instead of my predator eyes scanning the Texas brush...

    The Republican "Pledge to America" is a step in the right direction, but we should never settle for simply better. We always should demand much better. A return to excellence would be nice, wouldn't it? Compared to the bloated, ineffective, wasteful, expensive, irresponsible and downright enslaving Fedzilla programs the Democrats recently have rammed down our throats and will continue to force on us if re-elected, the Republican pledge surely would move America in a new, positive direction. What Republicans owe the American people is a hefty dose of plain-speaking, bold pragmatism that clearly articulates the GOP's vision for America. Even...

    Legendary rock star and hunting advocate Ted Nugent was fined $1,750 in Yuba County Superior Court Friday after pleading no contest to charges of baiting deer and not having a properly signed hunting tag stemming from a 2009 incident in California. California Department of Fish and Game spokesman Patrick Foy told the Appeal-Democrat that a game warden "just about fell out of his chair" when he saw Nugent kill an immature buck on an episode of "Spirit of the Wild," Nugent's hunting show on the Outdoor Channel, which aired earlier this year. Further investigation into the incident revealed that the...

    BROOKSVILLE - The race for Florida's 5th District was supposed to be a snoozer, with incumbent Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite coasting into a fifth term. But Brown-Waite's surprise disclosure - after the filing deadline - that she wouldn't seek re-election because of illness made this a race to watch. She had quietly recruited Hernando County Sheriff Richard Nugent to run in her place. Nugent, 59, is serving his third term as sheriff. He had been thinking about running for office.

Not only is it more than the County Commission had previously approved, it also is at odds with Nugent's earlier assertions that he could operate the facility for less than the amount the private company running the jail has charged.

She announced her retirement the very last day one can file to run for office for US House FL District 5.

Of those nine, seven also contributed to the unsuccessful special election campaign of accused Republican "liberal" Dede Scozzafava last year.

At the heart of his message is that our freedom can be taken away if it isn't understood and defended. All Americans should be mindful of that danger this Independence Day. In between rock anthems such as "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Stranglehold," Mr. Nugent hails the United States as the best country on Earth but cautions that American exceptionalism mostly exists despite the government, not because of it. When the universal rights that make America special are threatened by government overreach,...

    The issue: Hernando County Sheriff Richard Nugent's run for 5th District seat in Congress. Our opinion: Nugent should resign his post as sheriff. It's not fair to the taxpayers of Hernando County to pay Sheriff Richard Nugent's salary and benefits - which eclipse $136,000 annually - when he'll be spending much of his time running for Congress between now and the August primary. Because of his 11th-hour, backroom deal with U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite to run for her seat in Congress, Nugent needs to be a full-time campaigner and resign his elected law enforcement post immediately. If he plans on...

    We recently learned that our Congresswoman fell ill and is not going to seek re-election. The entire Sager for Congress campaign family continues to pray for her and her family in what is sure to be a difficult time in all of their lives.We must clarify some of the misreporting in the media over the past several days. Mrs. Brown-Waite is NOT retiring. She will complete her term through January of 2011. To say that she is “retiring” is to assume that she would have automatically won her re-election bid this election year. There are two people in particular who...
  • Brown-Waite's selfish exit

    05/05/2010 9:24:48 AM PDT · by cc2k · 7 replies · 422+ views
    Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite tarnished her legacy and cheated her constituents and political party last week with an underhanded move that deprives Republican voters of the right to choose her successor from a strong field of candidates. The Brooksville-area Republican, who was elected to Congress in 2002, announced her retirement, citing health reasons, Friday, but only after she had secured the candidacy of her handpicked choice and he had qualified for the August primary. <snip> Such stealth maneuvering is one reason why so many people no longer trust politicians. This one is all the more insulting because it robbed voters in...

    The calls for Sheriff Richard Nugent to resign his position and devote full-time to running for the 5th District Congressional seat got stronger Tuesday. <snip> Nugent, calling from Washington, D.C., where he has been since Monday, said he has no plans of resigning. He dismissed critics who say he won't be a full-time sheriff and would shortchange taxpayers. Much of his campaigning will be done on weekends and evenings and the day-to-day activities associated with the race will be handled by his campaign staff, he said. That's not to mean he won't be forced to travel out of Hernando County,...
  • Ted Nugent: Immigration lesson for numskulls-Arizona is leading, America should follow

    In the absence of any real border enforcement by Fedzilla and after the emergency of the recent murder of rancher Robert Krentz, Arizonans rightfully took matters into their own hands and passed a law allowing Arizona cops to demand immigration papers from people they stop. Good for Arizona. Other states, especially border states, should follow its lead. In short, Arizona's new law makes it a crime to be in Arizona illegally. It's 2010 - Good morning, America! Those people who can't produce documentation proving they are in the country legally can be jailed up to six months and fined $2,500....

    LOGAN -- 100,000 people are expected for the rally, and as you can imagine getting that many people in and out of one location takes a lot of preparation. Hours before the Friends of America Rally begins, crews continue to unload the needed equipment, putting the finishing touches on stage preparations that began 5 weeks ago. "It's a continuous show. There's no stopping. That's why we have 2 stages, so there's something constantly being prepared. While someone is performing, something is being torn down while something is being set up," says David Dodd, Event Production Manager for the "Friends of...

    Coal entrepreneur Don Blankenship put on a shindig at a reclaimed strip-mine site near Holden, West Virginia, for a Labor day picnic for 100,000 of his closest friends. Sean Hannity is there, so I suppose he will yak about it on his show tomorrow. Hank Williams Jr. is the main draw. Ted Nugent is the emcee. Nugent gave ‘em hell and told the crowd to fight back: “We have the perfect president for a nation that doesn’t care.”

    Just got a missive — unguided missile? — from my pal Ted Nugent saying he’s been fired by the Waco Tribune-Herald, which has new owners as of a couple of weeks ago. I’ve contacted Carlos Sanchez, the editor of the Trib, and asked for his response, which I’ll post below when I receive it. (For now, click here to read his comments as published in the paper today.) Nugent’s email to me: Just been fired from Waco Trib. Now they will have to rely on their other New York Times Best Sellers, and array of clever and diverse journalists to...
