For years I’ve been accusing the Libertarian Party of running stealth candidates just to siphon off potential Republican votes to get Democrats elected in states they couldn’t win otherwise. Now from the horse’s mouth, or should I say ass, comes proof for my accusation.

The final vote count in Kentucky’s gubernatorial race Tuesday had Republican Matt Bevin losing the election to Democrat Andy Beshear by 4,658 votes, or 0.3 percent. Libertarian Party gubernatorial candidate John Hicks received 28,427 votes or 2 percent of the votes cast in the election.

“Because of the LPK’s spoiler efforts, the state of Kentucky – barring a possible recount or discovery of voter fraud – will no longer have a governor who vetoes tax hikes, cuts red tape for job creators, and promotes free market economics.”  Shane Trejo, Big League Politics

Kentucky’s Libertarian Party is proud that their candidate played spoiler and helped a progressive Democrat win the governorship over a constitutional conservative in a red state.

“In an ideal world, we elect Libertarian candidates and advance liberty. Failing that, we push mainstream candidates towards liberty to advance the cause. But if we can’t do those things, we are always happy to split the vote in a way that causes delicious tears,” the Libertarian Party of Kentucky posted on Facebook Tuesday night.

It was bad enough that the Libertarian candidate helped the Democrat Party’s candidate defeat the Republican, but what’s worse is the Kentucky Libertarian Party and their candidate relished doing it. The Libertarians rubbed it in the faces of the voters who supported the conservative tea party candidate who reduced taxes and cut regulations in the state.

“Tonight there are plenty of delicious tears from Bevin supporters,” wrote the Libertarian Party of Kentucky in its Facebook post.

In 2013, a major Democrat Party campaign donor and top bundler for President Barack Obama’s campaign paid professional petition circulators to collect signatures to put the name of Virginia’s Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Robert Sarvis on the state’s ballot.

Sarvis, whose Libertarian credentials were suspect at best, entered the race to draw away voters from Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to ensure Democrat Terry McAuliffe a victory in a tight race.

Wes Benedict, co-founder and president of The Libertarian Booster PAC, didn’t seem to mind that Sarvis may have been co-opted by Obama operatives to help McAuliffe defeat Cuccinelli. Benedict said “he had ‘no problem’ if the perception turns out to be that Sarvis helped cause a Cuccinelli loss.”

The GOP didn’t run bad or unpopular candidates in Kentucky or Virginia. What happened is that the Democrat Party has upped the stakes to include stealth tactics involving the use of Libertarian Party candidates to win elections.

“Modern society is hypnotized by socialism. It is prevented by socialism from seeing the mortal danger it is in. And one of the greatest dangers of all is that you have lost all sense of danger, you cannot even see where it’s coming from as it moves swiftly towards you.” — Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Vote no trump

The man who said to vote your conscience and to vote for the candidate who best upholds Constitutional principles was resoundingly booed exiting the convention stage by party delegates.

Conversely the male who heads the PayPal corporation currently boycotting North Carolina because of its law restricting men from using women’s bathrooms and who shamelessly declared his pride for being a homosexual was applauded, cheered, and given a standing ovation by the delegates at the convention.

Those delegates who booed Ted Cruz and cheered Peter Thiel don’t belong to the party of Lincoln and Reagan nor do they represent its principles and values.

Those delegates belong to the Party of Trump and represent his progressive principles and New York values.

Trump has said on several occasions that he doesn’t need the party’s conservative base to win in November and doesn’t want their vote.

So I am honoring Mr. Trump’s request to not vote for him, and I encourage every principled conservative, evangelical, and patriot to do likewise.

Did Club for Growth Try to Shakedown Trump?

By Jerry A. Kane

It looks like one of the preeminent tea-party-aligned groups has been outed for an attempted shakedown of GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

According to Trump, the tax-cutting advocacy group has started running an attack ad campaign against him because he refused Club for Growth president David McIntosh’s request for a million-dollar donation.

Trump asked the group to release the letter McIntosh had sent him on June 2 requesting the donation. When the group didn’t respond to his request, Trump posted a copy of the letter on Twitter.

Late last week the group began its media-assault on the Donald:

“What we’ve said to our members is that ‘Trump is a liability to the future of the nation,’ and we’ve asked them for support for Club for Growth Action to get that message out. We’re also doing research, like we do on candidates, into his economic policy positions. At this point, we haven’t taken anything off the table – be it TV ads or any other means – to expose Trump as not being an economic conservative, and as actually being the worst kind of politician,” said David McIntosh, Club for Growth President.

In response to the shakedown allegation, the Club for Growth tweeted that Trump had tried to buy influence with organization, and his attempt failed:

“[Trump] tries to buy influence w his $. Failed with Club”

The group’s anti-Trump ad campaign looks a lot like the “you don’t play, we make you pay” extortion schemes carried out by shakedown artists Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Had Trump acquiesced and handed over the million-dollar “donation,” it’s doubtful McIntosh and the Club for Growth would have declared a “war on Trump.”

The lines have been drawn in the Republican Party between the establishment RINOs and neocons and the grass roots who uphold the Founders’ vision and the Constitution and believe in the Bill of Rights, particularly. This nation was founded by believers in Christianity, not Muslims, and certainly not Mormons.

In 2010, grass-root Republicans had a chance to get rid of John “Songbird” McCain but Dick Armey and Freedom Works convinced the four major tea parties in Arizona to withhold their endorsements in the Arizona U.S. Senate race. Armey has a libertarian bent and a PhD in economics, yet he supported McCain on fiscal grounds, which strains credulity.

Even though the Arizona Tea Party movement was formed to combat big government and the politicians who trample the constitutional principles of limited government, the four Tea Party groups chose to ignore McCain’s TARP supporting, amnesty pushing, free speech denying, global warming pushing and sit out the primary election, which in effect was backhanded support for McCain’s reelection bid.

Make no mistake, McCain was tea party enemy number one, yet the four major Arizona Tea Parties did nothing to stop the author of the anti free speech McCain-Feingold bill, the global warming McCain-Lieberman bill, and the amnesty for illegal aliens McCain-Kennedy bill.

Then in the 2012 midterm election, the candidacy of a Missouri Republican vying for a seat in the US Senate was derailed by Sarah Palin and Michelle Malkin.

Palin and Malkin castigated Todd Akin for his remarks on abortion in the case of rape. In referencing the probability of a woman becoming pregnant as a result of rape, Akin said, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Malkin called Akin’s remarks “really, really stupid, ignorant, and garbled nonsense,” while Palin called for a third party challenger in the Missouri senate race. Perhaps Akin shouldn’t have said “legitimate rape,” but he was distinguishing between an actual rape claim verses a bogus rape claim. FBI and DOJ reports show that about one forth of rape allegations are fabricated.

Also, Akin’s claim that women have some defense mechanisms against pregnancy in cases of rape is not without merit. According to some pro-life physicians, the fertilization process is highly dependent on hormonal signals, and stress can disrupt the hormonal milieu and cause miscarriages. And what is more stressful than a forcible rape?

Akin wasn’t making a demeaning comment about “legitimate rape.” He didn’t say that pregnancy can’t result from forcible rape. What he tried to say but didn’t say very well was that “the chance of a pregnancy occurring is quite low.”

That said, a child conceived during a forcible rape doesn’t have less dignity than one conceived during consensual intercourse. The full dignity and sanctity of an unborn child remains regardless of the circumstance of conception.

The opportunity to take the Senate ended with the banshees’ barrage in Missouri. My point is Democrats don’t devour their own in the national media or in public. When a Democrat politician says something racist or stupid, Democrats circle the wagons, go on offense, and accuse the accuser.

The truth is I’m really conflicted when it comes to Sarah Palin. I’m beginning to dislike her almost as much as I like her.

The bottom line is you can’t be stupid or emotional when fighting spiritually wicked Democrats, and unfortunately far too many conservative women engaged in the fight are both.
