Meet Matt Bevin

Matt Bevin for Senate

A message from Larry Forgy

Friends,

My name is Larry Forgy and I am a lifelong Kentuckian. I have been involved in Kentucky’s Republican Party for decades. I ran for Governor of Kentucky on the Republican ticket in 1995, and I served as the Kentucky Chairman for both of Ronald Reagan’s successful presidential elections.

I used to be a proud supporter of Senator Mitch McConnell. However, in recent years, I have become disappointed in the senator’s voting record. His current record is in stark contrast to the constitutional principles upon which he was elected, and for which I originally supported him.

That’s why, in the upcoming primary on May 20th, I am supporting Matt Bevin for U.S. Senate, and I am writing to urge you to support him also.

It is time to retire Mitch McConnell.

I can no longer be silent. I must enlighten the people of Kentucky to Senator McConnell’s unconstitutional voting record. Here are some votes which show just how far off track Senator McConnell has gone:

GUN CONTROL: Senator McConnell says one thing on the Second Amendment in Kentucky, and does something completely different in Washington. He voted for the 1991 Crime Bill (S. 1241) sponsored by Senator Joe Biden. This bill included a national waiting period for handgun purchases as well as a ban on semi-automatic firearms. In 1998, McConnell voted for Senator Barbara Boxerʼs Trigger Lock Amendment which required the purchase of a trigger lock with the sale of each handgun.

BAILOUTS: There are few bigger champions of the bailout than Mitch McConnell. McConnell joined Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in voting for
the so-called “Troubled Asset Relief Program” on October 1, 2008. Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) voted “Nay” on the same bill. McConnell was a champion of the TARP legislation, and referred to the passage of this massive taxpayer waste as “the Senate at its finest.”

OBAMACARE: Senator McConnell likes to say he opposes Obamacare, but actions speak louder than words. He voted for cloture, effectively
funding Obamacare on March 13th, 2013, and pressured other Republican senators to do the same. Because of Senator McConnell’s “leadership”, twenty Republicans voted for this bill. Senator Rand Paul voted “Nay” to this funding. Furthermore, McConnell worked to undermine efforts to defund Obamacare, cutting off Ted Cruz at the knees. He voted against Senators Cruz, Lee, Paul and others as they endeavored to protect the American people from this offensive legislation. Even worse – McConnell has received massive campaign contributions from United Healthcare, the lobby group that employs his former Chief of Staff, and advocates for Obamacare’s implementation.

EDUCATION: On June 14th, 2001, McConnell voted “Yea” for “No Child Left Behind”. This law demoralizes our teachers and our students. Our young people are taught memorization and mindless obedience instead of critical thinking and open-mindedness. Our teachers are reprimanded for teaching “outside the box”, and tailoring their assignments to meet the needs of the individuals in their classes.

Matt Bevin has proven that he can deliver what “We the People” need to ensure our children’s future. He is a husband and father of nine children. He has proven himself as a successful and ethical businessman, a military officer, and a leader in his community.

His actions, not just his words, prove that he would be a good investment for the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I ask you to join me in supporting Matt Bevin, the true conservative in this race for the Republican nomination. He can and will deliver.

Warm Regards,

Larry Forgy

On Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), in a speech at the Heritage Foundation said that “It might be the biggest lie of the century to say ‘if you like your doctor, you can keep him or her.” President Obama made this claim repeatedly on the campaign trail. At the end of 2013, liberal “fact-checker” PolitiFact called it the “lie of the year.” It is likely to haunt Democrats in November. It turns out that the implied claim, “if you like your economic system, you can keep it” was also a lie.

IMPORTANT: HOW TO STOP THE IMPERIAL PRESIDENCY

ObamaKingGeorgePIX

General cements plan to end Obama’s reign

Working in Washington now to implement radical solution

What to do about the alleged unconstitutional and unlawful actions of President Barack Obama?

Some have proposed marches. Others hearings. Some have demanded the president’s resignation. Some have called for impeachment, even though a Democrat-controlled Senate would be unlikely to oust their party’s leader.

Polls show Americans of all parties are upset with the direction of the country, but what can they actually do to make a difference?

Retired Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, as chairman of Stand Up America, has been at the forefront of many of these rallying cries, encouraging Americans to take action in a number of ways.

But now the former deputy commanding general of the U.S. Army in the Pacific has settled upon a battle plan he believes could actually work: a House-led, parliamentary style vote of “no confidence” in Obama’s administration.

“I have already achieved a level of ‘no confidence’ in Obama as a leader, but now I urge you to examine this concept,” Vallely wrote in an email to supporters obtained by WND. “If you agree with me that all confidence is lost, I urge you to then ask yourself what is in the realm of the possible. I implore you to push aside the urge to try and fix everything in one fell swoop.

“Now is the time for something a dear friend calls ‘conviction without eviction,’ an end that can be brought on through a vote of no confidence, locally, statewide and nationally,” Vallely claims. “This is just a first step in what can only be repaired over time, but it is achievable in the short term and starts to remove Obama’s ability to continue his ruinous ways now.”

Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely (ret.)

In a blog post on the battle plan posted Dec. 15, the general explained he already has a man on the ground in Washington working to make it happen.

Vallely quotes “a prominent Washington, D.C., insider with whom Stand Up America is coordinating –and who prefers to remain under the radar for the moment while conferring with potential House co-sponsors on both the basic rationale and the detailed content of such a House Resolution of no confidence” as offering the following justification for this novel course of action:

“First, in most of the world’s so-called ‘democracies’ – actually, multi-party constitutional republics – a formal vote of ‘no confidence’ by the Lower House suspends or greatly limits the governing authority of the party in power and, in a ‘recall’ of sorts, mandates new elections within 30-60 days,” the insider reportedly reasons. “Although we have no such instrument in our Constitution or in existing law, there is nothing to prevent its use as a comprehensive de facto indictment and conviction for contempt of Congress, violations of oath of office and of the Constitution itself – for all of the reasons stated in such a resolution.

“Second,” he reasons, “it would be much easier to cosponsor [than impeachment articles], to be formally adopted by the House and to achieve what might be called Obama’s ‘conviction without eviction’ – in which wholesale repudiation by the House, loss of control of the Senate and a substantial diminution of power and influence during his remaining time in office would be the penalties.

“We know there is no legal standing in a vote of ‘no confidence’ that would come of this act, but at least one thing will certainly occur: We take back the power of discourse,” the insider contends. “What do we do? We conduct a national ‘vote of no confidence.’”

To join the general’s call for action, visit the Stand Up America contact page to see how you can get involved.

“We cannot possibly believe that impeachment is attainable, and we know he will never resign,” Vallely adds, “but at least we can show other leaders the way; show our collective voices that we have no confidence in [Obama].”

Vellely contends the vote also would defuse some of the partisan finger-pointing that infects not only D.C. but the entire country.

“You are not calling anyone names, or labeling others. You are not trying to encapsulate each and every event,” he explains. “Rather, what you are doing is telling the world that ‘I have no confidence in him or his team anymore.’ They cannot take that away from you or attack you for it.

“A vote of ‘no confidence,’ albeit symbolic, at least focuses the discussion on something you can own as I own. This ownership is in your opinion; one based in fact and close analysis, not in emotion, ‘talking points’ or ulterior motives,” Vallely continued. “If asked or challenged tomorrow by his supporters that my lack of confidence is a political ploy, I will say, ‘No, I own my conclusions, I own my opinions and I have a deep sense of no confidence in Obama.’

“The House of Representatives must follow our lead and take up a resolution of no confidence,” the general contends.

Vallely’s calls to action have been immensely popular among tea party organizations that are seeking a way to restore the rule of law to Washington.

Among other examples they cite as evidence of disregard for law and the Constitution are the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and the 15 or more times Obama has changed the law – without consulting Congress.

“What else is our nation to do now that the rule of law has effectively been thrown out the window by the Obama administration?” Vallely asks. “How are we to trust our government anymore, now that lying and fraud are acceptable practices?”

Vallely listed a sampling of Obama’s broken promises and lies, crediting Peter Wehner at Commentary Magazine:

  • His promise not to allow lobbyists to work in his administration. (They have.)
  • His commitment to slash earmarks. (He didn’t.)
  • To be the most transparent presidency in history. (He’s not.)
  • To put an end to “phony accounting.” (It started almost on Day 1 and continues.)
  • And to restore trust in government. (Trust in government is at near-historic lows.)
  • His pledge to seek public financing in the general election. (He didn’t.)
  • To treat super-PACS as a “threat to democracy.” (He embraced them.)
  • His pledge to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent. (It remained above 8 percent for the longest stretch since the Great Depression.)
  • To create five million new energy jobs alone. (The total number of jobs created in Obama’s first term was roughly one-tenth that figure.)
  • To identify all those “shovel-ready’ jobs. (Mr. Obama later chuckled that his much-hyped “shovel-ready projects” were “not as shovel-ready as we expected.”)
  • To lift two million Americans from poverty. (A record 46 million Americans are living in poverty during the Obama era.)
  • His promise to bring down health care premiums by $2,500 for the typical family (they went up) … allow Americans to keep the health care coverage they currently have (many can’t) … refuse to fund abortion via the Affordable Care Act (it did) … to respect religious liberties (he has violated them) … and the insistent that a mandate to buy insurance, enforced by financial penalties, was not a tax (it is).
  • Obama’s pledge to stop the rise of oceans. (It hasn’t.)
  • To “remake the world” and to “heal the planet.” (Hardly.)
  • To usher in a “new beginning” based on “mutual respect” with the Arab and Islamic world and “help answer the call for a new dawn in the Middle East.” (Come again?)
  • To punish Syria if it crossed the “red line” of using chemical weapons. (The “red line” was crossed earlier this year – and nothing of consequence happened.)
  • That as president “I don’t bluff.” (See the previous sentence on Syria.)
  • And of course the much-ballyhooed Russian reset. (Tensions between Russia and the United States are increasing and examples of Russia undermining U.S. interests are multiplying.)
  • And let’s not forget Mr. Obama’s promise to bring us together. (He is the most polarizing president in the history of the Gallup polling.)
  • Or his assurance to us that he would put an end to the type of politics that “breeds division and conflict and cynicism.” (All three have increased during the Obama presidency.)
  • And his counsel to us to “resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long.” (Remind me again whose campaign allies accused Mitt Romney of being responsible for the cancer death of a steelworker’s wife.)

“It is time to recall the reprobates and reclaim the power of the people,” Vallely said. “We need to start with the White House and all of Obama’s appointees, especially Eric Holder. … Then on to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi – the architects who shoved Obamacare down our throats. We also cannot forget John Boehner and company who openly castigate the tea-party caucus, which are only doing that which they campaigned upon.”

Read the definitive case for removing Barack Obama from office in “Impeachable Offenses” by Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott.

Congress already is addressing charges that Obama is violating the Constitution.

WND reported when Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Obama’s actions have reached “an unprecedented level, and we’ve got to do something about it.

“Assume that a statute said you had to provide two forms of ID to vote. Can the president require three forms? Can the president require one form? Can you suspend all requirements? If not, why not?” he said. “If you can turn off certain categories of law, do you not also have the power to turn off all categories of law?”

Gowdy cited Obama’s decisions to ignore certain immigration laws, even though Congress did not approve the changes. He also cited arbitrary changes to the Obamacare law and Obama’s “recess appointments” of judges even though the U.S. Senate was not in recess.

His proposal is for Congress to take the White House to court over the president’s actions, through a resolution proposed by Rep. Tom Rice, R-S.C., that would authorize the House to sue the Obama administration. It has 30 co-sponsors.

Rice said that because of “this disregard of our country’s checks and balances, many of you have asked me to bring legal action against the president.”

“After carefully researching the standing the House of Representatives has and what action we can take, I have introduced a resolution to stop the president’s clear overreach,” he said.

A Fox News interviewer asked Gowdy if Obama could refuse to enforce election laws.

“Why not?” asked Gowdy, “If you can turn off immigration laws, if you can turn off the mandatory minimum in our drug statutes, if you can turn off the so-called Affordable Care Act – why not election laws?”

Gowdy noted that a liberal law professor, Jonathan Turley, agrees.

WND reported Turley’s concerns in December.

Turley has represented members of Congress in a lawsuit over the Libyan war, represented workers at the secret Area 51 military base and served as counsel on national security cases. He now says Obama is a danger to the U.S. Constitution.

He was addressing a House Judiciary Committee hearing Dec. 4. Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., asked him: “Professor Turley, the Constitution, the system of separated powers is not simply about stopping one branch of government from usurping another. It’s about protecting the liberty of Americans from the dangers of concentrated government power. How does the president’s unilateral modification of act[s] of Congress affect both the balance of power between the political branches and the liberty interests of the American people?”

Turley replied: “Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he’s not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid. That is the concentration of power.”

Turley explained that the “Newtonian orbit that the three branches exist in is a delicate one but it is designed to prevent this type of concentration.”

“There are two trends going on which should be of equal concern to all members of Congress,” he said. “One is that we have had the radical expansion of presidential powers under both President Bush and President Obama. We have what many once called an imperial presidency model of largely unchecked authority. And with that trend we also have the continued rise of this fourth branch. We have agencies that are quite large that issue regulations. The Supreme Court said recently that agencies could actually define their own or interpret their own jurisdiction.”

Turley was appointed in 1998 to the prestigious Shapiro Chair for Public Interest at Georgetown. He has handled a wide range of precedent-setting and headline-making cases, including the successful defense of Petty Officer Daniel King, who faced the death penalty for alleged spying for Russia.

Turley also has served as the legal expert in the review of polygamy laws in the British Columbia Supreme Court. He’s been a consultant on homeland security, and his articles appear regularly in national publications such as the New York Times and USA Today.

WND reported that it was at the same hearing that Michael Cannon, director of Health Policy Studies for the Cato Institute, said there is “one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restraints that the Constitution places of the government.”

“Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it,” he said.

“That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate. If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws, then they will conclude that neither are they.”

Cannon said it is “very dangerous” for the president to “wantonly ignore the laws, to try to impose obligations upon people that the legislature did not approve.”

Several members of Congress also contributed their opinions in an interview with talk-show host Sean Hannity.

See the Hannity segment:

Vallely explained that a “no confidence” vote now “would also tell the world that we recognize the mess this administration has wrought upon the world and we do not support his actions. Despite what supporters of Obama say about our standing in the world, the world is laughing at us. We are not pleased!”

Without that action, he writes, “Obama will just continue to subvert the Constitution he took an oath to faithfully protect.”

EXTRA POST . . . the December 18th Post is Below this one.

I have just received this by email and felt compelled to share it with you:

The typical U.S. Household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net
worth 47 times greater than a household headed by  someone under 35, 
according to an analysis of  census data released Monday.  If all of us “old
farts” have all of the money, then let us try to  elect someone who might be
near honest and not be  after feathering their own nests.

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in
some cases dinosaurs.  Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready to
retire. Others have been retired for some time.  We walk a little slower
these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have
worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. 

Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is
probably true.  But before writing us off completely, there are a few
things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled
us to lead America into the technological age.  Most of us remember what
outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience.

We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk
and ice being delivered to our homes.  For those of you who don’t know
what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators.

A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.
 
We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off.

We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote The
Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We
wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the
battlefield.  We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America; we
fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” We wore
different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star
Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may
even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived
what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation to
apologize to anyone for America.
 
Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least
one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and
died for it, and now we are going to save it.  It is our country and
nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America
against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to
keep.  There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.
 
It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the
Democratic Congress.  You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality
was nothing but “Hype and Lies.”

You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you
don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too
interested in their careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved
in such mundane things as patriotism and voting.  Many of those who fell
for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the
education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the
lies and instead drank the ‘Kool-Aid.’  Now you’re paying the price and
complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less
freedom.
 
This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you
with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy  
house.
 
Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in
2014 we are going to take back our nation.  We may drive a little slower
than you would like but we get where we’re going, and in 2014 we’re going to
the polls by the millions.

This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes
of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to “We the People” and “We
the People” plan to reclaim our land and our freedom.  We hope this time
you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our
grandchildren.  So  the next  time you have the chance to say the  Pledge of
Allegiance, Stand up, put your  hand over  your heart, honor our country, and
thank God for the old  geezers of  the “Grey-Haired  Brigade.”
 
Footnote:
This is spot on. I am another Gray-Haired Geezer signing on.  I will
circulate this to other Gray-Haired Geezers all over this once great county.

Can you feel the ground shaking???
It’s not an earthquake, it is a STAMPEDE.”
