Many of you live in Florida Congressional District 3 and have no doubt received flyers from both candidates. And like me I am sure you are tired of personal attacks and lies. Please review the links below for unbiased comments from third parties about the candidates and the race.
Factcheck.org published a story on Jake Rush and his father. Factcheck.org found that all of Rush’s accusations were FALSE.
From Breitbart.com- Immigration and Customs Enforcement has released the zip codes associated with the Obama administration’s release of 169 immigrants convicted of “homicide-related” offenses who were awaiting deportation proceedings.
Senator Grassley stated “Ensuring that our enforcement policies and procedures are best suited to protect national security, and public safety is paramount,” he added. “To make certain we are doing everything we can in this regard, I am instituting new procedures requiring that an appropriate senior-level supervisor must approve before ICE releases potentially dangerous individuals.”
According to Grassley, Winkowski’s response reveals the government has not placed adequate protections to “ensure public safety and national security.”
“The public needs to know when a person is in the country illegally, and who has been convicted of a homicide, is released into their communities,” Grassley said in a statement. “We’ve introduced legislation that would reverse the court case that the Obama administration is relying on to excuse its irresponsible release of thousands of criminally convicted aliens.”
Certainly no one who is reading this is surprised by the blatant fraud and abuse. The question is are the politicians willing to cut off the spigot?
From the Washington Times-
Food stamp recipients were selling their benefits online in exchange for money, housing or even art, according to a report federal investigators released Thursday that showed states manage to catch just a fraction of potential fraud in the sprawling program.
Use of the food stamps, now officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, has skyrocketed under President Obama, reaching 47 million recipients at a cost of $76 billion last year. But states recovered just $74 million in fraudulent payments the previous year, according to the Government Accountability Office.
Please read this great piece by Bryan Griffin, who many of you may know, was quite active while getting his law degree from UF’s Levin College of Law. He is a fine young man and great conservative. His future looks very bright as long as we all continue to fight for this great nation.
Bottom line, for me it is about people. I care about people living and succeeding. Everyone. Our lives are our right; our freedoms are our tools to our happiness and success. This is what I defend.
As a general principal, stereotypes exist about every demographic that should be deplored. I am not discounting their bite.
I am a conservative. There are stereotypes about the right that I can laugh at, accept, and even buy into. Does the Republican Party have a lot of ‘elderly white male’ representation? Sure. Are conservatives wealthy? Some are. Are there outlandish and in some cases deplorable stances taken by a fringe that associate themselves with my same ideology? Of course.
However, I am absolutely and unequivocally rejecting the vitriolic stereotypes of conservatism that are regularly assigned all too often by the left. The legitimacy of those labels end here and now.
As one of few openly conservative students at Columbia university, I sometimes have one of these stereotypes lobbed my way. I can take it, but I won’t accept it.
I will deconstruct these stereotypes one by one.
It should come as no surprise that race relations are worse now than they have been for the last thirty or forty years. The President, Eric Holder and the usual race baiters have done a great job at seeing to that. They certainly benefit by their actions but the communities they profess to want to help are left paying the price. Please read this good article by Kevin Jackson in The American Thinker-
“I’m amazed at how openly racist black Liberals have become, and how few non-blacks are willing to call them out on it.”
Below is a copy of a letter- “Statement of Fact”, that the Gainesville Tea Party signed in response to comments that candidate Jake Rush has made about local Tea Parties while campaigning.
Funny how the left always pins crony capitalism and money to the GOP. Even worse is the fact that most everyone buys it. Not so FAST-
Democrats in Congress have excused the actions of senior IRS bureaucrats, arguing that these Tea Party groups threaten to flood the political system with money from undisclosed sources. Yet at the same time, Democrat politicians benefit from millions in Big Green cash that goes toward groups with similarly political and policy-based goals, and some of that money comes from at least one shadowy foreign source.

President Obama authorized airstrikes against Islamist terrorists in Iraq and approved a humanitarian mission to deliver food and other supplies to tens of thousands of Iraqis trapped on mountaintops, moves that represent the most significant re-engagement in Iraq since formal combat operations ended three years ago.
Speaking at the White House on Thursday night, the president said the U.S. cannot sit idly by as innocent Iraqis are slaughtered by the Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

No doubt this will probably make it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court but bit by bit gun ban activists continue to lose.
From Bizpac Review-
A federal judge ruled Saturday that the nation’s capital’s ban on carrying guns outside the home is unconstitutional, dealing a serious blow to the gun grabbing crowd.
In a landmark decision, Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. wrote in Palmer v. District of Columbia, “there is no longer any basis on which this court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny,” Fox News reported.
Things have gotten so bad that Detroit residents are fighting over the only thing more urgently necessary than food and weapons when nature reclaims its authority over civilization.
Even gasoline and fire can be lived without. But not water.
Wars have been fought over it and civilizations have ceased for the lack of it. And so the battle rages in Detroit as the once-great civilization slips into chaos.

This should not come as any surprise. As with every other money that the Feds offer to States or Municipalities, there are always strings attached. Yes, all your ELECTED officials know this but choose the money.
The Obama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a new regulation that critics say will dramatically increase Washington’s power over local zoning laws in every city and town that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. And it’s the federal grants that could be used as a hook in the nose of these cities, forcing them to house illegal immigrants against their will.
Some are calling it the “Common Core of local zoning” that has flown under the radar for nearly a year. Instead of the U.S. Department of Education dictating education standards to local school districts, this rule change would allow HUD to influence zoning laws from the biggest cities down to the tiniest towns.

As if it was not bad enough that the taxpayers are footing the bill for over 40 million food stamp recipients, now your food prices will go up even more when food stores have to pass on their INCREASED cost of doing business to YOU. All for the good of ensuring food stamp recipients are better educated on how to eat. Oh yeah, this will probably become a mandate as more ridiculous things have been mandated in the past.
From the Daily Mail- Free movie tickets and supermarket cooking classes are just a few of the latest recommendations the government is proposing to trim America’s waistband. The new proposals were detailed in an 80-page report released this month by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is focused on the 42 million Americans receiving food stamps. However, it’s uncertain if grocery stores will take up these new programs as First Lady Michele Obama is already coming under criticism for her health school lunches.
The new recommendations are designed to reward healthy eating and change supermarket layouts and programs to highlight more nutritional foods.

So which of our two Senators has it right?
From Sunshine State News- The two U.S. senators representing Florida looked at the immigration crisis this week and pointed the blame at the Obama administration for why it’s continuing. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., took to the Senate floor on Thursday and said the Obama administration was failing to grasp why tens of thousands illegals — including more than 52,000 children who have been caught since October — are crossing the border. Nelson called for the Obama administration to ramp up operations and aid in Latin America to assist the war on drugs.
