Yesterday, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) announced that he’s suing President Obama and the NSA in a class action lawsuit .
In December, a federal judge ruled NSA’s domestic phone data mining as unconstitutional.
If you’re concerned about the lack of transparency from our government and this clear violation of Fourth Amendment rights, then sign this petition in support of Paul’s class action lawsuit. Sign it and then share it with your family and friends!
Here’s my post-election analysis of the Virginia gubernatorial race:
Ken Cuccinelli was the right candidate to run for governor on our side. Say what you want about his conservatism, which didn’t hurt him, he only narrowly lost to Terry McAuliffe 45.27% to 47.75%. Had a moderate Republican been selected, McAuliffe would have won in a landslide. Exit polling showed that Cuccinelli actually won independents on the issue of ObamaCare 47 to 38%. Thankful for grassroots groups like Women for Ken and countless volunteers for their tireless work. (Yes, it is because of them – not the RNC – that this race was a narrow loss.) Yes, Cuccinelli should have been more ruthless…McAuliffe had so much dirt, we should have exploited it better. But McAuliffe had $15 million more to vilify, defame, and lie about Ken.
Why did Cuccinelli lose? No, it’s not because he was conservative. (Cuccinelli out-performed Romney in areas he won and even won a few liberal counties.) My only concern was that Ken wasn’t aggressive enough. Lack of help from the RNC is mostly to blame and the Obama bundler-backed “libertarian” Robert Sarvis did spoil the race.
There’s a number floating around saying the RNC spent $3 million in this race. According to records, the RNC donated $85,098 to Ken’s campaign (Virginia Public Access Project). The RNC put more resources into the NJ governor race although we all knew Christie would win in a landslide. Give me a break about having limited resources. If they weren’t so intent on undermining conservative candidates, we would have won this race. Everything is local, which is why you dedicate time to winning the Governor’s Mansion. They did diddly-squat for Cuccinelli. This incompetence is only foreshadowing the imminent war between the grassroots and Establishment. Don’t say that we didn’t warn you… (More on this later.)
Robert Sarvis, that squirmy “libertarian” spoiler who was backed by an Obama campaign bundler….This guy spoiled the race and took some votes from Cuccinelli. This guy supported high taxes (gas mileage), Medicaid expansion, taxpayer subsidized abortion, and wasn’t a fan of Austrian economics. People like this creep should never EVER be given the day and time in politics. This guy screwed libertarian ideas (especially economic ones) over by aiding and abetting McAuliffe.
What’s the takeaway? Cuccinelli was fighting for you; Terry McAuliffe was fighting for his pockets and Hillary Clinton. You will reap what you sow. ObamaCare is going to hurt our great Commonwealth, and angry white liberal males who were scared about a mythical war on birth control will get full maternity coverage under ObamaCare — until they lose their HC coverage. Terry McAuliffe will try to pass a lot of executive orders to usher in Marxist policies. We must be prepared to stop him.
Fellow Virginians: I’m not giving up on the Commonwealth of Virginia and neither should you. Be prepared to fight.
Happy Election Day, fellow Virginians!
This has been a long year and a half of smears, lies, and deceit from Democrats eager to turn Virginia into California or even worse, Detroit, MI. Terry McAuliffe is a crook and our state can’t afford to have him lead it to ruin.
This was the first time I voted in Virginia’s statewide elections. Previously, I voted in my home state California and am happy to be in a state where my vote actually counts. That’s why I voted for Ken Cuccinelli (Gov), E.W. Jackson, (LG), Mark Obenshain (AG), and Brian Wolfe (Sheriff) this morning.
Not surprisingly, I received some lovely hate from a McAuliffe supporter. Keep it classy!
Also, it was just revealed that “libertarian” candidate Robert Sarvis (unsurprisingly) received money from Democrats, namely an Obama campaign bundler from Texas. I knew he wreaked of sleaze too. (Libertarians and moderates, don’t be deceived by this big government phony masquerading as a libertarian.)
So naturally, I had to confront this troll about being an accessory to McAuliffe’s scheming.
What’s the takeaway from all of this? Democrats and sore loser Republicans attempted to undermine Ken Cuccinelli and should pay for their misgivings. If we pull out a victory tonight – yes, it is possible – we will deliver a HUGE upset to our opponents. Let’s make that happen, please? Mark my words: This race will be very, VERY tight. Please make sure all of your friends and family members here in Virginia vote for Ken, E.W., Mark, and Bryan Wolfe if they live in Fairfax County.
UPDATE: Around 6pm ET, the Virginia Board of Elections will start tabulating precinct returns. Polls will close at 7pm. Pay close attention.
I’ve penned a new column at Counter Cultured just in time for Election Day here in Virginia. My family and I will be voting for Ken Cuccinelli for Governor, E.W. Jackson for Lieutenant Governor, Mark Obenshain for Attorney General, and Brian Wolfe for Fairfax County Sheriff.
Below is an excerpt from my column criticizing Terry McAuliffe’s misogynist views and crusade for big government:
Tomorrow is Election Day here in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Many of you have seen me comment, tweet, and write about the gubernatorial race in great detail. (Disclaimer: I’m a Ken Cuccinelli supporter and have been since he launched his campaign in Summer 2012.) This race is important for our state, and its outcome will have an impact nationwide.
A win for Cuccinelli is a win for freedom; a win for McAuliffe is a win for big government.
Much to the dismay of Terry McAuliffe and his surrogates, Ken isn’t an extremist or a woman-hater. On the contrary, Ken is pro-woman–more pro-woman than McAuliffe could ever claim to be.

Can’t believe it’s already November…Within a few days, those of us here in Virginia will be voting for our next governor. This race not only matters to our state; it matters to this country. There is one candidate who is a Washington outsider, constitutional conservative, and defender of freedom. That man is Ken Cuccinelli. (I will have two more posts here before Election Day explaining my support for Cuccinelli.)
What about McAuliffe and Sarvis?
Terry McAuliffe is a big government, cronyist stooge eager to turn Virginia into California or New York. He models his policies after the Clintons and President Obama. He’s currently under several federal investigations too. He’s pro-woman? Quite the contrary. He left his wife and newborn kids in the car to go raise millions of dollars for the DNC; and he recently declared getting an abortion after 20 weeks is a constitutional right. The guy is as corrupt as they come.
Robert Sarvis is a moderate progressive masquerading as a libertarian. This guy ran for office in 2011 as a Republican, lost, and is bitter. Heck, he even campaigned saying he’d model himself after Cuccinelli. In several recent interviews, Sarvis revealed that he likes higher taxes (i.e., gas mileage tax), Medicaid expansion, no regulations on abortion clinics, and is in favor of mainstream economics (not much of a free marketeer). A vote for Sarvis is a vote for McAuliffe.
This is not a repeat of 2012. Cuccinelli has never flip-flopped on issues, and he was the first Attorney General to file an injunction against ObamaCare. He has stood up to the federal government on numerous occasions.
Fellow Virginia voters: Please vote smart. Vote for limited government – vote for Cuccinelli and the rest of the ticket.
Despite what Terry McAuliffe and his apologists say, Ken Cuccinelli is not anti-woman. Ken believes that women should make their own decisions, independent of the government, to excel in life. The majority of us aren’t keen on aborting children or relying on the government from cradle to grave. We recognize the danger of big government, which is why we are supporting and voting for Ken Cuccinelli.
Below is a video featuring a clip of my sister and I for our support of Ken Cuccinelli.
Polls are tightening, and this race is not lost. Encourage all of your friends here in Virginia to vote for Ken and the rest of our ticket.
On Wednesday, September 25, I joined Women for Ken to rally support for Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli outside the gubernatorial debate in McLean, VA. It was a fairly successful event. A lot of women came out to support Ken. Yes, the McAuliffe supporters showed up too–only to leave shortly afterward.
Of course, no political rally is complete without Planned Parenthood’s abortionistas.
What else could be more awkward than them? A McAuliffe supporter wearing a birth control costume. (Gross.)
Our side had a strong showing against McAuliffe supporters.
Thankfully there were plenty of pro-lifers in attendance, including these bro-lifers.
Despite the weird sightings, my sister Anna Maria and I were proud to attend the Women for Ken Rally.
If you live in Virginia, vote for Ken and the rest of the Republican ticket on November 5th, 2013.
Thank you to Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy for highlighting the rally.
