Dear Senator Tracy, voting NO against status quo is a good thing in 4th District

Dear Senator Tracy, voting NO against status quo is a good thing in 4th District

Tn State Senator Jim Tracy was recently quoted belittling Congressman Scott Dejarais’ voting record  saying “As I’m traveling around 16 counties in the 4th District, people are tired of somebody just voting ‘NO’ all the time.” 

Hello? McFly? Mr Tracy? Are you sleeping under a rock? We want someone voting NO in DC. Geesh!

In today’s world of liberal progressives, Republican elitists and RINOs all sounding alike it is truly refreshing to see someone vote against the grain and cast a NO vote on occasion. We dont want a political puppet parroting Obamas every move.

Congressman Dejarlais has quite a respectable, conservative reputation for being a man among a bunch of liberal progressive boys in DC.

He frequently votes no on several mainstream items such as the last budget bill that severely cut veterans benefits, improved illegal immigrant benefits and took away some of our second amendment freedoms.

He also voted NO to the Monsanto Protection Act provision that called for unlabeling GMO, Genetically Modified Organisms. 

Perhaps he was referring to the budget cuts or voting NO to fund Obamacare. 

He voted NO because he ignored Nancy Pelosi types and read the bill before voting. This creates an environment for a NO vote, Mr Tracy.

What YES votes would Mr Tracy vote for if he doesnt like NO votes? The ones mentioned above? I’m afraid we know this answer. Why would anyone in the 4th District vote YES to anything on Obama, Reid or Pelosi’s liberal agenda? 

Does Tracy really think attacking an incumbent candidate that votes NO when appropriate, against Obamas liberal left agenda, would really score him points or votes in this case, in the 4th?

State Senator Tracy, take a seat buddy! There is a real man at the congressional wheel in DC. You are way out of touch with the 4th if you think  NO is a bad thing. Bow out of this race please, its embarrassing. There are plenty of YES men in Washington, D.C. already!

We like his NO votes and are sending Dejarlais back to DC. 

From the office of Congressman Dejarlais:

Dear Bradley County News,

In a recent interview with the Murfreesboro Post my opponent in this race stated, “As I’m traveling around 16 counties in the 4th District, people are tired of somebody just voting ‘no’ all the time.” 

This is not the first time state Senator Jim Tracy has made this statement attacking my voting record. 

But that begs the question, what exactly would a Congressman Jim Tracy support?

Perhaps he disagrees with my several ‘no’ votes against any attempt to raise our nation’s debt limit? Perhaps he would have voted for the Ryan-Murray budget deal that imposed unconscionable cuts on our military retirees? Or maybe the senator would have cast a ‘yes’ vote for all of the government funding bills that locked in wasteful Washington spending and funded ObamaCare?

It is no secret that I say ‘no’ quite a bit in Washington. But what can I support that President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Reid would also agree with? We hold totally different views for the future of this country.

And it is not just the White House and the Senate I have had to oppose. I have stood up against my own party when I felt they were abandoning the conservative principles we hold here in Tennessee’s Fourth District.

When I ran for Congress I promised I would be a conservative voice in Washington.I believe I have kept that promise. In fact, National Journal listed my voting record as the fourth most conservative in the House of Representatives and Congressional Quarterly ranked me as one of the top five Republican Members of Congress who consistently opposes President Obama’s agenda.

Now it is true that putting principle before politics does not come without a cost. I do not have many friends among the deep-pocketed K Street lobbyists. However I do sleep easy at night knowing my vote is not for sale. 

I hope the media will ask my opponent which one of my votes he disagrees with or even what he would do differently in Congress. Voters deserve an answer.

I am proud of my voting record because despite what state Senator Tracy might claim, I know that is exactly what the people I work for want: saying no to the Washington status quo.

2nd Amendment Preservation Act needing a sponsor

In Uncategorized on December 28, 2012 at 6:14 AM

The Tenth Amendment Center has created a piece of legislature to preserve our gun rights in Tennessee. As many of you know, in the wake of recent school shootings, the liberal Socialists in DC are pursuing every opportunity to take our guns out of many hands because of the actions of a few evil twisted people.

The 2nd Amendment was written to protect us from a tyrannical government, not purely for hunting and target practice. The assault on our constitution by the likes of the United Nations, Harry Reid, Diane Feinstein and a host of others is coming out of their mouths much too easily these days.

This preservation act that had recently been drafted is to send a strong message to our Federal Government that our guns and our Constitution or any part of it are not on the table for any disruption or hijacking by the likes of a communist regime. Our guns are not negotiable and we will not simply stand by while you destroy the fiber of what has made this country strong and free for years.

We are needing a sponsor or someone to pick up this act and deliver it to the house for approval. Our state rights must be our voice and we are asserting our rights to do so. I am calling on all or any legislators or State Senators to run this throughout the necessary committees to get it approved and in place as we are sure to see very soon an onslaught of new regulations that will squelch and eventually take away our gun rights.

I am putting out a challenge to one of our Tn State Legislators or State Senators to take the proverbial ball and run with it.

State Representative Kevin Brooks or Eric Watson?
State Senator Mike Bell or perhaps the likes of Bo Watson?

Who can take this bill and make it a reality?

We must get on the phone with these guys and encourage them to stand in the gap and get it done!

We are only a minute from losing many rights that our forefathers and the many after them have fought very hard for to prevent this day and we are making it way to easy on a fake president and his cronies to do it in one 8 year term.

Please feel free to copy and paste this proposed act and take it with you so it can be done. Please give me a call if you accept the challenge. It would be great if I could get 10 calls or more. But to prevent duplication and we need a sponsor and then co sponsors. There is plenty of room for all.

Iowa joins other states reigning in UN “poll watchers”, TN remains mute

In Uncategorized on November 1, 2012 at 8:38 AM

Iowa has joined with Alabama and Texas as states listening to the will of the people and warning UN “poll watchers” that they will be arrested if they violate strict election and voting laws.

In a specific statement Iowas Secretary of State issued a warning to UN “poll watchers” that if they enter polling areas and are within 100 feet of a voting booth they will be arrested on the spot.

Many have reported seeing UN “poll watchers” inside election buildings meeting candidates and observing along side election officials as a few sources observing the observers have confirmed.

To date, in Tennessee we have not heard such a bold statement from our elected leaders even at the behest of many of their constituency.

Altough Tennessee State Senator Mike Bell did report via email, in a conversation recently with Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett, Bell went on to explain Hargett said the observers will only be there to “learn and observe and the will adhere to election laws.”

Senator Bell added that concerns about the observers were “overblown” but did affirm his distaste for the UN in this email statement, “First, I will say we should be completely out of the U.N.  This organization is (and) has always been controlled by interest who would like nothing better than to take down America.”

Multiple attempts to converse with other Tennessee local state and federal officials has gone unanswered.

Several concerned citizens from Bradley County, Tennessee are exploring the option of seeking court injunctions to stop the observation and potential overreach of UN/OSCE delegates while on US soil if our representatives fail to act.

The lack of response of our elected officials to protect our sovereignty and integrity of our election process should be noticed, especially in light of a recent Tn State House resolution by State Representative Kevin Brooks, HJR 587, condemning UN involvement in our communities, as it relates to Agenda 21, a UN agenda to transform our communities. The measure passed easily in the house and Senate but failed to get Governor Bill Haslams signature.

The letter below from Iowa Secretary of State Shultz lays down specific ground rules for UN involvement from observers and draws a line in the sand citing specific state laws that confines their activities in and around the polling booths.

(DES MOINES)—Matt Schultz, Iowa Secretary of State, issued the following statement in response to reports that members of a UN-chartered delegation are being dispatched across the United States, including Iowa, to observe the General Election:

“As Secretary of State, I support the efforts of other nations to learn more about our election process and ways in which they might improve their own election systems. We welcome the four international visitors to our great state.

The Texas Secretary of State recently drew the ire of the OSCE when he announced that UN International poll watchers would be arrested if they showed up within 100 feet of polling areas. However, it was reported yesterday that members of this organization are attempting to gain access to Iowa polling places on Election Day. My office met with two delegation representatives last week to discuss Iowa’s election process and it was explained to them that they are not permitted at the polls. Iowa law is very specific about who is permitted at polling places, and there is no exception for members of this group.”

Iowa Code section 49.104 defines the limited number of individuals permitted at polling places on Election Day, and section 49.105 states that poll workers “shall order the arrest” of any persons violating these provisions.

Any election law violations can be reported to the Iowa Secretary of State’s office by calling the Election Hotline at 1-888-SOS-VOTE.

The OSCE recently responded to the Texas Secretary of State in a speech to NATO and in a letter to Secretary Hillary Clinton regarding Texas’ threats to arrest UN “poll watchers” that violate the law.

“The threat of criminal sanctions against [international] observers is unacceptable,” Janez Lenari, the director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), said in a statement. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”

It shows that we have allowed way too much control by international bodies when they scathingly address the US and it’s people the way the OSCE Director Janez Lenari recently did.

This type of reprimand by the UN asserts that they have some type of ownership and supervision of a free people. This is unacceptable to a freedom loving country and should not be tolerated by those in office that represent us.

“The only thing between accepting tyranny from the UN is an undying desire from its patriots to remain sovereign and free!”

You can quote me on that one!
