For seven hours two Navy Seals held off the terrorists in Benghazi, waiting for the support to arrive. One hour away, marines were stationed and ready to assist. General Ham, Commander of AFRICOM, wanted to send his troops to the aid of those in the Embassy, who were calling for aid, when he was told by his Commander-and-Chief to “Stand Down”. When General Ham ignored the order, he was apprehended by his second in command and relieved of duty.
While two Navy Seals heroically held off a compound over run with terrorists, the President held off their military support, watched in the situation room of the White House until the two men were dead, and then jetted off to Vegas for a fund raising event. Yes, the two Seals ignored the “Stand Down” order and chose, instead, to hold to the oaths they had taken to the citizens of the United States. They died waiting for the President to uphold his.
What has followed in the aftermath is myriad of lies and cover-ups, even at first trying to blame the “incident” on an obscure filmmaker and promising to arrest him, violating his freedom of speech. The media has been working overtime trying to cover this mess up for the President. It isn’t working and some in the media are starting to see the folly of their ways and abandon the sinking ship.
The Democrat brand has the mark of deceit seared onto every package it presents to the people. It is apparent throughout the liberal ticket that lies is the campaign strategy of choice. What is most disturbing is the disdain the Democrat ticket has for the basic unalienable rights for Americans-life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Angus King has told so many whoppers in this campaign that the word count in this column couldn’t contain them. He has put the Maine Democrat Party in the awkward position of trying to support his campaign, neutralize their own candidate, and still try to make King seem independent. And remember when he said that those who supported traditional marriage needed to be “educated”. He never said how he was going to do that…. Maybe the hum from his windmills is sending out subliminal messages to all Maine residents, besides the toxic waste they are dripping all over our mountains.
Mike Michaud, not so affectionately known as Pelosi’s Puppy, has a unique approach to representative government. When the district he represents votes over 65% against gay marriage, he thumbs his nose at those he represents and instead represents his own interests on this issue. Those incessant tugs on his leash from Washington way may be causing him to hallucinate, perhaps. At last telling, he believes the Kevin Raye is moonlighting as a high-end designer, building exorbitant kitchens on the taxpayer’s dime. This prompted Maine newspapers to categorize Michaud’s deception, as the biggest lie of the campaign.
Michaud’s close friend, Herbert Clark, has a similar approach to campaign strategy. Work to co-sponsor a bill with the Senator you will be running against in the next election. Then blame the whole thing on him, cry that you were hoodwinked and had no idea what you were doing. Finally, assure everyone that if they vote for you, from now on, you will be aware of what you are sponsoring when you sponsor a bill, and, oh, please keep screaming about the bill that I sponsored but I wish I hadn’t sponsored because its all I’ve got to campaign on. I think he needs some cheese with that whine.
Finally, the Piscataquis County Commissioner races are of great importance. Roxanne Quimby has been on a crusade to gate off the people of Maine from any access to the wilderness that we love so much. The Democrats have been her allies in this crusade. Recently, she attempted to block access to the Little Wilson Falls by gating a County road. The Piscataquis Republican Party answered the call of the people to rectify this travesty and, with Paul Davis, Doug Thomas, Pete Johnson, Fred Trask, and Jim Annis leading the charge, the Commissioners voted to demand Quimby remove the gate. It was Fred Trask who forced the vote on the Commission to remove the gate. Silence, at best, from the Democrats.
Make no mistake; a vote for Sue Mackey Andrews and Donald Crossman for County Commissioner is a vote to give Roxanne Quimby control over the Maine Highlands and the 100-mile wilderness. This is an important vote not only for Piscataquis residents but for the precedent it sets for the State of Maine as a whole. Vote for Fred Trask and Jim Annis as Piscataquis County Commissioners.
It seems the leaders of the Democrat Party have telling Americans to “Stand Down” for far too long. Perhaps, it is time for Americans to tell the Democrat Party to “Stand Down”. Vote for Liberty November 6th!
