  • Ron Johnson’s Beltway Blunder: The "The Ronald and The Donald Double Down" Edition

    05/06/2016 10:58:10 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 22 replies
    on Johnson’s dreams of the “Ronald and the Donald Show” are all coming true! This week’s blunder is Johnson's move to double down on his support for Donald Trump. While other Republicans seem put off by Trump's overt racism, sexism, and xenophobia, Johnson looks forward to campaigning with "The Donald." In Eau Claire this week, Johnson reaffirmed his vow to stump with Trump as Republican nominees, saying that together they'll "make this country great again." And if that wasn’t clear enough, he went out of his way to embrace Trump again today saying he would endorse the Republican party’s nominee....
  • Ron Johnson won't rule out break with Trump, says 2016 campaign 'depressing'

    03/01/2016 1:09:23 AM PST · by ObamahatesPACoal · 35 replies ^ | MARK SOMMERHAUSER
    Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson has declined to rule out a future break with his party's presidential frontrunner, Donald Trump -- a shift from Johnson's past statements that he would back whoever the GOP nominates. Following Trump's reluctance to disavow a former Ku Klux Klan leader in a Sunday TV interview, Johnson told radio host Charlie Sykes that he's happy to disavow any form of white supremacy. Johnson, R-Oshkosh, said he's "praying" for leaders who won't be divisive and -- without naming Trump -- said he's demoralized by the current state of the presidential race. "It's depressing to see how...

  • Johnson Comments on Immigration Bill Vote (2013: WI Senator wants to stop deporting families)

    12/21/2014 2:17:48 PM PST · by ObamahatesPACoal · 10 replies ^ | June 27, 2013 | Senator Ron Johnson
    Senator Ron Johnson (WI) released the following statement regarding his vote on S. 744, the Immigration Reform Bill: "America is a compassionate society, and no one wants to separate families by deporting moms and dads or husbands and wives. As a result, I support immigration reform and a path to legal status for people whose only crime was to enter the country illegally when they came here to work. I also recognize that our current immigration laws are not working – not for American workers, not for employers, and not for immigrants who want to come to America and play...

    Former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, a tea party and libertarian hero, will campaign for Virginia Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II on Monday — a day before voters go to the polls to choose Virginia’s next governor. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, will also make appearances on behalf of Mr. Cuccinelli in the days leading up to Election Day. Mr. Walker is scheduled to campaign with Mr. Cuccinelli in Prince William and Spotsylvania counties Saturday, and Mr. Rubio is scheduled to appear in Warrenton and Culpeper Monday. News of the appearances was first reported by...

    The president made it clear that Congressional authorization is superfluous, asserting falsely that he has the authority to act on his own with or without Congress. That Congress allows itself to be treated as window dressing by the imperial president is just astonishing.

    I'm sick of seeing the posts on FaceBook and elsewhere of the Ron Paul people taking their votes and going home. What? This will help America get her house in order? How many of these kooks will it take before Romney loses real support he needs to put him over the top? The main reason people want Ron Paul is so he can take on the Fed and fiscal issues. Mitt, give him his chance. Sew up the remaining wounds from the primary (Paul Ryan was a great salve to conservatives) and announce the intention to make Ron Paul Secretary...

    In typical sleazebag fashion the English side of the flyer makes no mention of Israel. Via Big Peace: Ron Paul, who has consistently engaged in anti-Semitic nonsense over the course of the past few decades, has largely attempted to hide his anti-Semitism throughout his campaign. No longer. Ron Paul has issued this Arabic-language flyer outside the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn, Michigan [seen above].

    Rep. Ron Paul will drop off the campaign trail in South Carolina on Wednesday and fly back to Washington to cast a vote against raising the debt ceiling, his campaign said Tuesday. ... Mr. Obama said late last month the federal government was once again close to breaching the legal limit on how much it can borrow, and he requested Congress raise the ceiling again. Opponents would need to pass a resolution disapproving of the increase and have it signed into law, or else override a presidential veto, to bloc the increase — which is highly unlikely. But returning to...

    Rush Limbaugh blasts Ron Paul as the Conservative Killer: ...the majority of people that voted him were not Republican. And in another poll, the percentage of Ron Paul voters who say they will vote for the Republican nominee is... like 80% of Tea Party voters in New Hampshire said no matter who the Republican nominee is they're voting for it. The Ron Paul number is 40%. Now, as I say, I've gotta double confirm. It's ostensibly Rasmussen and we're double-checking this, but what I know so far, or what I've been told is that Ron Paul supporters, 40% say...

    Open Secrets reveals Ron Paul's top 3 contributors as being the following: US Army $24,503 US Air Force $23,335 US Navy $17,432Unfortunately, this doesn't really tell us how many individual donors contributed. Isn't it the case that Open Secrets only counts those (around 11,270) who give $200 or more (FEC- $250?)? I think about a third of donors don't bother listing their workplace on their contribution form. And a combined $65,000 in military campaign donations accounts for very little as a percentage of the millions that the Paul campaign has raised. In 2008, much was made by the Paul...

    This clip, taken from C-Span, from a House session dating back to March 2001, shows Ron Paul stating there is nothing to fear from a global currency.... as long as it's backed by gold, of course. Listen at 0.32 (more in your face numerology), where Paul states there being nothing to fear from a "single, worldwide currency." He then goes on to praise the wonders of globalism, which he also claims is nothing to fear. Is the establishment running scared of Ron Paul, or is that what "they" would like you to think? Is it so absurd to think they...

    Ron Paul's greatest liability is Ron Paul, but his second greatest liability are his hippie-Nazi cultists. Not all of his supporters are hippie Nazis, but the aggressive ones are. Since "Audit the Fed" wants to boost Ron Paul, I'm promoting his comments to the front page. Quick, everyone! Get on this train before it fills up. I call this prose poem "Jewess." It's about Elena Kagan. Oh for Christ's sake. She's a jewess. AND a bulldyke. She has no integrity whatsoever. Chief Justice John Roberts: Epic. Fail. I call this sonnet "Hebe Community."

    We did a series back in February on libertarianism. Ron Paul’s ascendency in Iowa begs that we revisit this issue. I recently told a friend that I might hold my nose and vote for Ron Paul because he is the only one talking about drastically cutting the federal bureaucracy. I take it all back! The more we learn about this guy, the more troubling are his views. We argued in our series that libertarianism is based on a moral foundation of sand. And that is exactly what Paul’s views reflect. On the surface, conservatives ought to like him. He says...

    As his ascent grows increasingly questionable in light of scrutiny of his foreign policy stances and several-decade-old newsletters, it appears the questions about the latter have become inescapable for Rep. Ron Paul, even from garden variety political enthusiasts. Rep. Paul appeared today on Iowa’s WHO-AM with host Jan Mickelson and had to confront repeated questions on how it was possible for him not to know the content of his newsletter. The caller initially asked, simply, how confident Rep. Paul was that the newsletters– not released while Rep. Paul was in Congress, but in the interim between his initial term and...
