URGENT: Murkowski is Cheating in Alaska Senate Race

We always tell you the truth – even when it’s bad news.

And in Alaska, the past few weeks have been nothing but bad news. The deck, it seems, is stacked against us. RINO Lisa Murkowski was able to get her friend, who is the head of the Elections Division in Alaska to violate the law and print out a list of write-in candidate’s names, so that voters would be given a sheet listing Lisa Murkowski’s name – in order to maximize the votes for Murkowski.

But it doesn’t end there. The Elections Chief, Murkowski’s friend, has also announced that voters need not spell Murkowski’s name correctly and they’d still count the votes for Murkowski – again breaking with not only tradition, but the law.

For the past few weeks, Murkowski has been smearing Joe Miller, because while he worked as a Fedreral Magistrate in Alaska he used his computer and other computers in the office, to vote in an online poll.

That’s Joe Miller’s big offense. Never mind that Murkowski voted for the bailouts, the “Son of Stimulus” and hundreds of millions in earmarks. Joe Miller voted in an online poll and the media, along with Murkowski’s allies, are smearing him.

And if that wasn’t enough, the National Republican Senatorial Committee refuses to campaign against Murkowski – as they don’t want to offend or alienate her, even though she lost the Republican nomination for Senate.

So it seems that only we, the Tea Party Express, are willing to campaign against her. Thus, we need your help in these final days of the campaign, as we place radio and TV ads in support of Joe Miller and in opposition RINO Lisa Murkowski.

Please, help us fight back. If you can give $50, $100, $500, $1,000 or more (up to the maximum allowed contribution of $5,000 per individual) to our campaign supporting Joe Miller, we can overcome the dirty tricks of Lisa Murkowski’s campaign. Contribute online – HERE.

CHRIS COONS WON’T SUPPORT DELAWARE IF ELECTED TO THE SENATE

By: AJ

Stunning actions by Chris Coons and his operatives represent the limitless power and control he will wield over ordinary citizens if he’s elected Senator of Delaware. It’s time we take a serious and sobering look at this man to learn what he’s done, whose interests he supports and determine whether or not he will act in the best interest of the people of Delaware.

1. Did Chris Coons and his political operatives make a false and vicious personal attack on Christine O’Donnell (R-DE) by turning a date in her past into an untruthful sex scandal?

YES. On Thursday, 10/28/10, Chris Coons and his operatives created a slanderous personal story about a date from years gone by. Thankfully Chris Coons and his radical left operatives were vilified in the media for their despicable actions. Christine O’Donnell has not waged personal attacks at Coons; she campaigns on the issues and her specific plans to help Delawareans.

2. Was Chris Coons sued three times in 2007 for retaliating against Delaware public employees for their political views?

YES. The article can be found here. Perhaps the most egregious of the three…

“And two years ago, Freebery’s brother alleged in lawsuit that he was improperly fired because he supported his sister. He was the general manager of Special Services for the county.”

3. Was Chris Coons sued for violating the rights of a Delaware citizen?

YES. He violated Free Speech and Right to Privacy laws. He believed his position as County Executive gave him the power to release the private medical history of a Delaware citizen and chill his right to Free Speech.

As a Senator, if elected, do you think he’ll perceive that he has more power or less power? Have you ever been sued by four employees for violating their rights?

4. Did Chris Coons cost Delaware taxpayers millions of dollars to benefit his special interest friends?

YES. The News Journal reported that “Coons voted to open a pension loophole that would have allowed County employees to buy into the pension system, or to transfer credit from other government services. He [Coons] saw to it that his buddies and top staff people — and all six of the new County Council Members and their staff — were grandfathered under that loophole which has, and will, cost [Delaware] taxpayers millions of dollars.”

5. If elected Senator, will Chris Coons read the bills, listen to Delaware citizens and properly represent Delaware?

NO. Let’s listen to his own words stating that he would rubberstamp the Obama agenda… regardless of whether or not it’s in the best interest of Delawareans.

Chris Coons Vows To Rubberstamp The Obama Agenda

“I’m someone who would broadly support the agenda of our president. We disagree on a few things, like drilling. But in general, I think that we need more folks in the Senate of the United States who are willing to vote. Willing to vote, for example, to confirm a Supreme Court nominee, someone who respects precedent, who follows the values that Justice John Paul Stevens brought to his deliberations on important issues of the day. Somebody who is willing to work in responsible partnership with an administration that I think made the right choice on health care, on the stimulus, on the jobs bill.”

Chris Coons: I Will Support Harry Reid And Rubberstamp The Obama Agenda

Chris Coons declares his allegiance to Harry Reid and the Obama administration’s big-spending agenda.

CHRIS COONS: As a Senator, his first vote would be for Mitch McConnell to lead the United States Senate. I don’t think that’s in Delaware ‘s best interests, and I don’t think that’s in our best interest. My first vote would be for Harry Reid to be the leader, and to support, in general, the administration’s agenda.”

6. Will Chris Coons receive personal gain if he’s elected Senator and votes to pass Cap and Trade?

YES. Chris Coons stands to make millions off of middle and low-income Delawareans through his wealthy family business if Cap and Trade passes in the Senate.

7. As County Executive, was Chris Coons fiscally responsible? Did he fulfill his campaign promise not to raise taxes?

NO. The following videos tell the tale.

Michael

“Michael Brown, Wilmington City Councilman: Chris Coons raised property taxes 54%. He raised the sewer taxes 64%. He promised as a candidate NOT to raise taxes. Shame on Chris Coons.”

Chris Coons the Taxman

“Meet Chris Coons, the Taxman. As New Castle County Executive, Coons couldn’t find enough taxes to raise. In fact, he even petitioned the state legislature for new authority to levy even more taxes on items he couldn’t tax before. Learn more about Chris Coons‘ tax schemes at www.coonsthetaxman.com

8. Has Chris Coons been honest about his trip to Africa and what his political ideology was transformed into?

NO. The American Spectator does an exceptional job in their article “Chris Coons: Volunteer for Liberation Theology.” Here’s an excerpt:

“Now, the liberation theology chickens that Chris Coons was supporting in Africa have come home to roost in America .

Car companies have been nationalized, the government has made a move to control banks, financial institutions and — at the top of the unpopularity chart — America ‘s health care system. Taxes are headed up, unemployment perpetually hovers close to double-digits, eye-popping deficits into the trillions loom for generations and just last week the U.S. Census Bureau announced that the poverty rate had soared to 14.3% {in 2009, which adds 3.34 million more Americans living below the poverty line}, up from 13.2% in 2008. As the Wall Street Journal points out, this “translates into 43.6 million Americans living below the poverty line, the largest absolute number in the half-century for which comparable data are available.” Last week the Obama White House announced it was putting Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard Law School professor New Hampshire whom Senator Judd Gregg calls a “social justice” advocate, in a position to, again in the Journal’s words, “dictate how credit is allocated throughout the American economy.” Class warfare reigns.

In other words, America is right this minute in the tightening grip of “liberation theology” — exactly the philosophy that Delaware ‘s Chris Coons was so anxious to go to Africa and serve as a volunteer. The idea, as the South African Black Consciousness Movement had it, of “state participation in industry and commerce…and an even larger role for the state in planning and control.”

Only to the Ruling Class is it any surprise Americans are furious. Americans — most recently all those Delaware Republicans surging into the voting booths to back Christine O’Donnell — now vividly understand with all too much precision the connection Hannity was explaining. They now understand the direct connection between the far-left ideas behind candidate Obama, James Cone, Jeremiah Wright, liberation theology — and their own everyday lives as Americans.”

Chris Coons’ abuse of power as a County Executive is stunning. His actions and record show that he’s actually the worst candidate that Delawareans could ever elect to represent them.

Chris Coons is a man who used his position to retaliate against employees/citizens of Delaware, to release a citizen’s private medical information, to use vicious lies in an attempt to personally slander an opponent, to lie to Delawareans to get elected and then raise their taxes once elected, to misrepresent his political ideology and what he did in Africa, and to manipulate the system to cheat taxpayers out of millions of dollars to benefit his special interest supporters.

Imagine what Chris Coons will do with his perceived power if he’s elected Senator? The thought is frightening.

And let’s not forget Chris Coons has made it clear that he’ll be a rubberstamp as a Senator. He’ll vote for Cap and Trade, more Stimulus bills and every other bill that his party wants – regardless of whether or not it’s good for the people of Delaware.

TEA PARTY EXPRESS IV — “OHIO — WEST VIRGINIA” EDITION

By: Dave Logan
ThirdWaveDave

DAY 12 of TPX IV was all Michigan — Jackson, Waterford and Monroe. Pictured below is one of the Michigan rally scenes. The patriots in Michigan mean business and if you don’t believe me, ask Bart Stupak from the TPX III days! Andrea Shea King has more from yesterday’s rallies at The Radio Patriot.

DAY 13 has the crew on a two-state swing, with rallies in Columbus, OH — 10 AM; and Wheeling, WV — 3:30 PM. Tea Party HD and Liberty.com are just one click away from bringing you to the rally via your computer. Give it a try — no sign-up — just click!

With just a few days remaining for TPX IV, I’d again like to mention those folks who are making sure the word gets spread far and wide: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton at NoisyRoom; John Ruberry at Marathon Pundit; Melanie Morgan at Melanie Morgan.com; Barbara at American Freedom; and one Grant at Tea Party Movement. The TPX IV efforts were much more effective with the help of these bloggers — more money was raised, more people watched and attended the rallies and more people became aware of the vast Tea Party movement sweeping our nation. And one more blogger I need to mention: Douglas V. Gibbs at Political Pistachio. Thanks, Doug!

CONTRIBUTE to the TEA PARTY EXPRESS — the tour ends on Monday and the election ends on Tuesday, but that just means we’re having a change in personnel in Washington DC. The work of TPX doesn’t end Tuesday. In fact, the real work will just begin. Our national problems aren’t going to be solved with this one election. We have to keep a close eye on those new members headed for DC, plus we have to round-up another new batch of patriots for the next cycle. We’re in a deep hole and it will take some time, money and lots of other support from YOU to get this nation back on track. So far, so good.

*UPDATES from tour embed Andrea Shea King will fall in below as our gal on the road calls them in. Check back often. Below, Kevin Jackson with Andrea Shea King in St. Louis. (Photo by Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit.)
