Congressman Steve Israel is Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf!!

Oh my, is Steve Israel afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?  Sure sounds like it when you read his campaign website where he whines and cries about some good old fashioned trash talking by Lt Col Steve Labate.  I bet Israel went home and told his mommy about the big bad bully, Lt Col Steve Labate!

Congressman Israel’s campaign attacks Lt Col Steve Labate for a comment Labate made at a recent fundraising event.  Quoting from Israel’s website  “At a Republican gathering late last week, our opponent set the stage for an ugly, nasty campaign by saying things like: “I enjoy a good scrap…Steve Israel will have the fight taken to him like he’s never had before.” That’s not a policy disagreement, that’s personal.”  The Israel campaign goes on to accuse Lt Col Labate of having a vendetta against Steve Israel and that Labate is itching for a personal fight (http://www.israelforcongress.com/node/841). The only thing personal about Labate’s remarks is his expressed desire to stop the destructive policies of Congressman Israel, President Obama and the democratic party so his children are not left with a 3rd world country where fear and despair reign supreme.  Talk about grasping for straws in characterizing Labate’s comments.  Seems to me Steve Israel is getting desperate that he is facing a truly worthy opponent who is motivated by patriotism and love of country as opposed to Israel who is motivated by partisan politics.

Steve Israel is certainly an expert in the politics of personal destruction given his position as head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).  If you check the DCCC website you will discover a cornucopia of videos and press releases which viciously accuse Lt Col West of riding with a motorcycle gang and insulting Nazi victims.   To smear a military hero like Lt Col West is business as usual for the DCCC machine and Steve Israel.  Is it any wonder that he would seek to tarnish the reputation of another military hero, Steve Labate?  There is an old expression which says people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.   Well Congressman Israel, you live in a glass house and it’s called the DCCC attack machine.

So please Congressman Israel, spare us your phony virtue concerning personal attacks.  As head of the organization who wrote the book on dirty politics, you have no credibility in castigating Lt Col Steve Labate by cherry-picking his remarks and accusing him of starting a fight.  .  We military people are trained to be fighters, and fight we will against you and your destructive policies. You’re barking up the wrong tree if you think a military hero like Lt Col Steve Labate will back off his criticism of you. If you can’t handle a little bravado by an opponent, you have no business serving in Congress.  So next time you feel threatened by Lt Col Labate’s comments, take a pill and go on Oprah to complain instead of ginning up some phony controversy to sucker people into donating money to your campaign you jackwagon.

Congressman Steve Israel Declares War on Tea Party, GOP and Veterans

Well, well, well, Look what came into my possession today. This is a fundraising email for Congressman Steve Israel.  The Israel campaign trashes the tea party as the enemy of women and the middle class.  Particularly egregious is the charge that the tea party is responsible for the credit downgrade of the United States.  Can you believe the nerve of these people?  Of course you can, we’re dealing with democrats. It’s pretty clear that the democratic playbook for the up-coming election is to trash the tea party and blame us for all our ills.   Congressman Steve Israel  is the head of the DCCC (Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee) and will be using these tactics against every republican in the country. See my previous post for more information (https://longislandpatriot.wordpress.com/2012/01/25/sending-out-an-sos-to-my-fellow-patriots/).This is war folks and we all need to man the battle stations to combat the immense media power of the democratic machine.

The un-named opponent of Congressman Israel is Lt Col Steve Labate. This is truly a David vs. Goliath battle as Steve Israel, in his position at the DCCC, will have access to enormous financial resources. Lt Col Steve Labate is a Field Grade Officer who still wears the uniform of our country and served a combat tour in Iraq. The nerve of Steve Israel to state he “is not ready for prime time”. But then again what does that mean? After 20 years as an Army Officer and 3 years on Active Duty since 9-11, is he implying that he’s not up to being a member of Congress? The arrogance of that comment is amazing and is a slap in the face to all Veterans. I guess to serve in Congress the prerequisites that you must never have served your country nor held a job outside of government like Steve Israel.

 Fear not my fellow patriots if we marshal our resources like we did in 2010, victory will be ours.  We need all hands on deck to support tea party patriots all across the country so we can return the government to we the people. Every donation, no matter how small, multiplied by millions of tea party supporters is the formula we need to get rid of democrats in Congress and their destructive policies which are bankrupting the country.

It’s official. Our campaign now has a Tea Party-backed candidate running against us for New York’s 2nd District. While this news doesn’t come as a shock, it does put more pressure on us to be prepared.
Our opponent has been prepping for this race for over two years, when he first tried to get on the ballot in 2010. He’s been raising money and building his campaign since then, and now, with the Tea Party and Republican endorsement, he thinks he’s ready for prime time.
The Tea Party has been trying to run the country for just over a year now, and look where it’s gotten us. The candidates ran for Congress on the platform of “jobs, jobs, jobs,” but instead, they’ve been attacking women’s health care and tax cuts for the Middle Class. They’ve brought us to the brink of a government shut down three times now, and even caused our country’s credit rating to be downgraded. That hasn’t done much for our nation’s economic recovery.
As for jobs bills? None. They’ve attacked the most vulnerable among us by doing nothing at all. The Tea Party run Congress has been the least effective Congress since 1812, and we don’t need to add to it by sending another member to Washington!
Help Congressman Israel fight back against the Tea Party! Chip in $5 now: www.israelforcongress.com/contribute
The Tea Party has sacrificed the average American time and time again for a misguided ideology that has produced no positive results. It’s time to put things right.
Thanks for standing with Congressman Israel this election cycle.
Sincerely,

Congressman Steve Israel’s Solyndra Problem

First it was Solyndra, then came Beacon Power Corp.,  now we learn of a third federally  subsidized green energy company declaring bankruptcy last week.  Ener 1 was awarded $118.5 million from the Energy Department through the 2009 Stimulus Bill and has filed for bankruptcy just one year later.  The total taxpayer dollars that have vaporized for these three failed ventures is close to $700 million. In addition,  The New York Times reports that Nevada Geothermal Power, another recipient of millions in DOE loan guarantees, is struggling financially: Its auditor reported last week that he has “significant doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern.” Nevada Geothermal received a DOE loan guarantee of $79 million, plus at least $66 million in grants. Now isn’t this a hoot,  we come to find out that a $737 million contract was awarded to Solar Reserve, a company in which Nancy Pelosi’s brother in-law is an investor as well as George Keiser, who was the biggest investor in Solyndra.

Now what does all this have to do with Congressman Israel. Well Israel is the Co-chair and founder of the Sustainable Energy and Environment Caucus in Congress which  was created to advance policies that promote clean energy technology innovation and domestic manufacturing, develop renewable energy resources, create green collar jobs throughout the product supply-chain, help arrest global warming and protect our nation’s clean air, water and natural environment.

Congressman Israel’s official bio states “Israel is considered a leader on U.S. energy security, reducing our national dependence on foreign oil, lowering energy costs, and creating an innovative clean technology economy. His key energy accomplishments successfully leading opposition to the former Bush Administration’s budget cuts for energy efficiency and renewable energy; successfully funding the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy” (ARPA).  ARPA is the agency which funded Solyndra and the aforementioned failed green energy ventures and Israel co-sponsored the bill that created this agency (HR 3220).  Not only did Israel supply the funds for these failed ventures, he sponsored HR 3836 to authorize the Secretary of Energy to provide credit support to enhance the availability of private financing for clean energy technology deployment, i.e. loan guarantees.

Once the democrats took over the House of Representatives, Congress Israel began a spending orgy on so called “green” energy technology.  He plundered billions of hard earned taxpayer money sponsoring or co-sponsoring legislation for  such projects as solar villages in the third world (HR 2878)  green energy research cooperation with china (HR 2312), establishment of the Emerging Clean Energy Technology Venture Capital Fund at DOE (HR 2809), cash for clunkers (HR 520),  to name a few of the more egregious bills.

Congressman Israel, it seems you never met a green program that you didn’t like.  How many more Solyndra’s do we need before you realize that you are abusing the taxpaper with your reckless spending on unproven technologies that the private sector is not willing to spend money on.  The country is broke and you are in large measure to blame with your plundering of the public treasury to appease the radical environmental lobby. If “green” energy is so great, why don’t you quit your job and start a “green” company.  Then, when the company goes belly up like all the others, you can stand in front a bankruptcy judge where you will be forced to admit that pouring money into “green” technology  was not a good business decision.  Yes, Mr Israel, there is NO Santa Claus and we the people are sick of the billions wasted on your “green” utopian vision.

Sending Out an SOS to My Fellow Patriots

 Lt Col Stephen Labate is running for Congress in the 2nd CDNY against Congressman Steve Israel who is the the head of the DCCC (Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee).  The is truly David vs. Goliath as Steve Israel in his position at the DCCC, will have access to enormous financial resources.  We may not be able to take out Nancy Pelosi in an election, but Steve Israel can be taken out because we are a 50/50 district that was formerly held by a Republican.  The problem has been that the Republicans have not run a strong candidate against Israel nor provided sufficient financial resources to run commercials.  Many of the residents of my district have been deceived by Steve Israel because he campaigns as a moderate, but governs as a radical.  I have created a face book page called Dump Congressman Steve Israel where you can see his positions.

I’m sure you are asking, why I should care about Congressman Steve Israel.  As I mentioned earlier he is the head of the DCCC and is planning a jihad against Congressional Republicans across the country including Paul Ryan and Allen West, and possibly your congressperson.  Here’s the DCCC link for their Red to Blue campaign http://dccc.org/pages/redtoblue.  The democrats believe this strategy will put them back in control of the House and Nancy Pelosi as speaker.  We cannot let this happen.  What better way to send a message to the democrats than to defeat the head of the DCCC and mount a vigorous campaign against him to distract him from his work at the DCCC.  He thinks he has his seat locked up as no one has seriously challenged him.  Lt Col Steve Labate intends to fight for this congressional seat and bring sorely needed conservative leadership to the Republican Caucus.

Steve Labate is a Lt Col in the US Army Reserve and is a combat veteran of the war in Iraq and has been endorsed by Congress Veterans for Congress.  In civilian life he works in the financial services sector and is a retirement planner at Prudential Financial.  Steve is an unapologetic conservative who will be faithful to the US Constitution as he has demonstrated through his military service.  Steve is not a career politician and will do what’s in the country’s best interest and not what’s in his own political interest.   Like us, Steve believes we are the precipice of losing the freedoms our founders fought so hard to establish for our country.  Steve faces a formable task in taking on Steve Israel.   He needs financial support and I am asking you to help him in whatever way you can.  As I stated earlier, Steve Israel is head of the DCCC and is your enemy as well as Steve Labate’s.  Please visit Lt Col Labate’s website http://www.labateforcongress.com  to read more about him and please consider making a donation, no matter how small, to Steve’s campaign.

Yours in Liberty

My Fellow American’s Wake Up From Your Slumber

Ok folks, it’s come to Jesus time.  Obama’s unconstitutional acts of doing recess appointments while congress was not in recess certainly qualify as high crimes and misdemeanors, to say the least. He is setting himself up as a dictator and no one is speaking out let alone doing anything about it. Where is the GOP and why are they not screaming from the rafters? Where is our generation’s Paul Rever…e? We are at the precipice of losing our country and people better wake up quick and do something about it fast. His plans to gut the military are further proof of his dictatorial plans. He needs to get rid of any potential threats to his takeover. People need to understand history and how dictators in the past have used the same techniques he is using to obtain complete control.  It’s time to turn off the tv, stop playing farmville and any other meaningless things you do and do everything in your power to save this country by educating yourself, family,and friends.  Every elected official who does nothing about this needs to be thrown out of office, both GOP and democrats. There are some GOP congressional reps who are patriots but their voices are being drowned out by the go along to get along check pants republicans.  Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a patriotic democrat anymore.  Every democratic politician currently serving in congress is an enemy of the US Constitution and therefore your enemy.  You need to be bombarding elected officials, particularly the GOP leadership with letters to take action before it’s too late.  I’m as serious as a heart attack about what I’ve written and I defy anyone to refute what I’ve said.  It’s up to each of us to wake up from our slumber lest the book The Late, Great USA be written.

Herman Cain: Don’t let the book The Late, Great USA be written

I am a female, retired Air Force Officer, wife, and mother of 4.  I believe we are at the precipice of losing the freedoms we have long enjoyed throughout our nations history.  Obama is quickly taking us down the path of communism and must be stopped.  I knew we needed a strong, principled candidate who would do what was in the best interest of the country and not what was in their best political interest.  I didn’t want to hold my nose again and vote for weak candidates like John McCain and Bob Dole.  I knew the only candidate that would meet this criteria would be a non-politician who wouldn’t pander to the political and media establishment. That’s how I came to choose Herman Cain as the candidate I would support.  He is not a politician, he’s a successful businessman, a man of God, and most importantly not politically correct.  Herman Cain says what most normal Americans say everyday about the future of our country and what needs to be done to turn things around. The more the media and the political class attacked him, the more I knew I had made the right choice.  If Herman were not a threat to the status quo, then the right wing and left wing establishment wouldn’t spend every waking moment attacking this fine man.  We are truly finished as a country if the tactics used against Herman Cain succeed and he withdraws from the race.  There is not one single candidate who would be left in the GOP race that would take the fight to the establishment and get our country back on the right track. It will be simply business as usual in Washington DC and the political class will continue to rob we the people of our money and more importantly our freedom.  We the people need you Mr. Cain lest the book be written about the late great USA.  God bless you and your family.

Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 Plan for Economic Renewal

 Phase One
Our current economic crisis calls for bold action to truly stimulate the economy and Renew America back to its greatness. The 9-9-9 Plan gets Washington D.C. out of the business of picking winners and losers, using the tax code to dole out favors, and dividing the country with class warfare. It is fair, simple, transparent and efficient. It taxes everything once and nothing twice. It taxes the broadest possible base at the lowest possible rates. It is neutral with respect to savings and consumption,capital and labor, imports and exports and whether companies pay dividends or retain earnings.
9% Business Flat Tax
 Gross income less all purchases from other U.S. located businesses, all capital investment, and net exports.      Empowerment Zones will offer deductions for the payroll of those employed in the zone
9% Individual Flat Tax.
 Gross income less charitable deductions.      Empowerment Zones will offer additional deductions for those living and/or working in the zone.
9% National Sales Tax.      
Unlike a state sales tax, which is an add-on tax that increases the price of goods and services, this is a replacement tax. It replaces taxes that are already embedded in selling prices. By replacing higher marginal rates in the production process with lower marginal rates, marginal production costs actually decline, which will lead to prices being the same or lower, not higher.
Economic Impact    
 According to former Reagan Treasury official Gary Robbins, of Fiscal Associates, the 9-9-9 Plan will expand GDP by $2 trillion, create 6 million new jobs, increase business investment by one third, and increase wages by 10%.
 9-9-9 Plan: Summary     
  • Removes all payroll taxes and unites all tax payers
  •  Provides the least incentive to evade taxes and the fewest opportunities to do so
  •  Lifts a $430 billion dead-weight burden on the economy due to compliance, enforcement, collection, etc…
  • Is fair, simple, efficient, neutral, and transparent
  •  Ends nearly all deductions and special interest favors
  •    Features zero tax on capital gains and repatriated profits
  •   Exports leave our shores without the Business Tax or the Sales Tax embedded in their cost, making them world class competitive. Imports are subject to the same taxation as domestically produced goods, leveling the playing field.
  •   Lowest marginal rates on production
  •  Kills the Death Tax
  •   Allows immediate expensing of business investments
  •     Eliminates double taxation of dividends
  • Increases capital formation which aids capital availability for small businesses
  •     Increased capital per worker drives productivity and wage growth
  •    Features a platform to launch properly structured Empowerment Zones to renew our inner cities
  •      The pro-growth, pro-job, pro-export economic policies of the 9-9-9 PLAN equals a strong dollar policy
 Tomorrow: Phase 2 – The Fair Tax
