Brian Mast Announces Bid for US Congress

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Politics

Our Founding Fathers had a vision.  They dreamed of a country that valued hard work and enterprise; that respected life and liberty.  With few exceptions, they were Christians who believed in God and sought His guidance.  

Since that time, America has seen a lot of ups and downs and changes in the way we do business.   We’ve seen men and women twist and turn the vision of our Founders to fit personal and group agendas.  Politics has become a lucrative career for many.  In fact, very little of what we see in our governance on every level resembles what our founders had in mind. 

Sadly, we have arrived at a place where everything they stood for and risked their lives for is completely upside down, and I have to believe that very little of what we’ve become would find favor among men like George Washington, John Adams, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, or any of the rest.  

They were decent men with unshakable values and principles who lived at a time when those things were not uncommon.  Today, those values and principles are very uncommon; when men and women politicians will say and do anything to attain and hold onto power…even to the point of trampling those who still support decency.

Having said all that, I am happy to report that Brian Mast, a man who understands and embraces the vision and values of our founders has announced his decision to run for the US Congress representing the 18th District of Florida.  

Only in his early 30’s, Brian is a Veteran who has served our nation at great personal loss and continues to serve.  He is a God fearing family man, and I believe if he had been born at the time of our founding, his name would already be in the history books.   You can find out a lot more about him by visiting his website.

We at The Patriots Press wish him a successful campaign and look forward to addressing him as Congressman Mast.

AFP unfazed by "decorum-less Detert"

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Politics

Publisher’s note:  Apparently, Florida State Senator Nancy Detert, (R) is unfamiliar with the 1st Amendment and what it guarantees to everyone.  

During a recent hearing, Senator Detert threatened that “she could change the organization’s First Amendment rights to donor privacy.” “When AFP Deputy Director Skylar Zander explained to Senator Detert that Americans for Prosperity, like other non-profit organizations, followed the laws protecting donor identity, she stated, “We could change that.”

It doesn’t matter whether an elected official has a ‘D’ or an ‘R’ after their name, they don’t get to decide which laws apply to whom at their whim when they disagree with the constituency.

Harry Reid...unremorseful liar

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Politics

Publisher’s note:  How is this acceptable to any American regardless of party or ideology?  In case you haven’t heard, retiring former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid didn’t simply admit to besmirching Mitt Romney during the 2012 Presidential Race…he bragged about it!

During an interview with the Washington Examiner Reid said among other things, “…"They can call it whatever they want. Romney didn't win did he?"

That’s what it comes down to.  Lie, cheat, and anything else that helps the agenda.

Now he gets to retire fat, dumb, and happy on our dime.  All I can say is that I’m glad to see him go; I just wish he’d take a lot of the other rats from both sides of the aisle with him.

Washington Examiner:  Harry Reid, D-Nev. has no regrets about his 2012 claims that then presidential candidate Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years.

The outgoing Senate Minority Leader even bragged to CNN that the comments, which had been described as McCarthyism, helped keep Romney from winning the election.

"They can call it whatever they want. Romney didn't win did he?" Reid said during a wide-ranging interview.

So, in Reid's world, it is perfectly acceptable to make a defamatory charge against an opponent to damage his campaign.

And they're off....2016 has officially started

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Politics

Publisher’s note:  And they’re off.  The players are starting to take the field to try out and see if they have the stuff to make the cut.  The starting line-up includes mostly conservative names like Palin, Cruz, Walker, Santorum, Perry, and even Trump, with a few liberals like Bush and Christie thrown in to test and see if the conservative base is paying attention.  

Bush and Romney, considered by “the party” as the front runners, did not show their faces in Iowa. Stay tuned.

Fox News:  DES MOINES, Iowa –  The budding Republican presidential race has kicked up a notch, after a slew of potential candidates played directly to the base at a forum in Iowa -- an event that saw Sarah Palin back in the mix, Chris Christie proving he can mingle in the heartland, and Ted Cruz and others showing their fiery conservative chops.

Several of the speakers at the daylong Iowa Freedom Summit tilted hard right in their remarks on immigration, security and taxes. And the speakers and audience members showed scorn for those who did not attend -- particularly the more moderate no-shows, like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Media bias against the GOP...what a surprise

Written by Fox News on . Posted in Politics

Publisher’s note:  It’s never been a secret that the “mainstream media” swings far to the left, and here is a clip from Boston Herald correspondent Adriana Cohen discussing the lack of coverage of the mid-term election, which is likely going to see many Democrats seeking alternate employment, and the overall lack of reporting on the current administration’s behavior.

In essence, she clearly points out that a Republican POTUS would never been allowed the pass the media affords this president and Democrats in general.
