A newly emerged CBS News video from 2001 flies in the face of the national media pointing fingers at Donald Trump, accusing him of lying about the reports of thousands of Muslims cheering on rooftops after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The video, from September 16, 2001, from WCBS-TV, the CBS owned and operated station in New York City, actually reports something virtually identical – that “swarms” of Muslims cheered from rooftops over the terrorist attacks that killed and injured thousands of Americans. As Breitbart found, the CBS newsman said in the video: “Just a couple of blocks away from that Jersey City apartment, the FBI raided yesterday and had evidence removed, there is another apartment building, one that investigators told me, quote, ‘was swarming with suspects’ — suspects who I’m told were cheering on the roof when they saw the planes slam into the Trade Center. Police were called to the building by neighbors and found eight men celebrating, six of them tenants in the building. ——————————————————————- 12/1/2015: Carson on Planned Parenthood Shooting.  Looks like he got his talking points from the Left.

———————————————————————– 9/19/2015 The Conservative Case Against Carly Fiorina http://townhall.com/columnists/johnhawkins/2015/09/19/the-conservative-case-against-carly-fiorina-n2053948/page/2 ” … John McCain and Lindsey Graham were all supporting Fiorina (in the CA Senate race against conservative R DeVore vs Barbara Boxer.)  Interesting question: When have John McCain, Lindsey Graham and the NRSC EVER backed a conservative candidate over a moderate in a competitive race? Yes, that’s right; they don’t do that. Ever. After beating DeVore  (in the primary) by outspending him more than 3-to1, Fiorina went toe-to-toe with charisma-free Senator Barbara Boxer and got her brains beaten in. Surprise, surprise — Fiorina’s disastrous run at Hewlett Packard turned out to be an anchor around her neck and the fact that she was such a terrible politician that she signed off on bizarre garbage like the Demon Sheep ad (IT APPEARS at 2:26) certainly didn’t help. In a year when Republicans picked up 6 Senate seats, Boxer waltzed to a 10 point victory over Fiorina. So, Fiorina’s a failed CEO and it would be more accurate to call her an “establishment favorite” than an outsider, but at least she’s a hardcore conservative, right? Well….not so much. Here’s Redstate on Carly Fiorina back in 2010. From her praise of Jesse Jackson, to her playing the race and gender cards against DeVore, to her support for the Wall Street bailouts, to her qualified support for the Obama stimulus, to her past support for taxation of sales on the Internet, to her waffling on immigration, to her support for Sonia Sotomayor, to her Master’s thesis advocating greater federal control of local education, to her past support for weakening California’s Proposition 13, to her statement to the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board that Roe v. Wade is “a decided issue,” Carly Fiorina’s oft-repeated claim to be a “lifelong conservative” was only plausible in the universe of NRSC staffers who recruited her in the first place. …She endorsed Federal funding of embryonic stem-cell research for “extra” embyros. She endorsed the California DREAM Act, which grants in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. She refused to endorse California’s Proposition 23, which suspends the job-killing AB 32 climate-change law. Fiorina also strongly supported Marco Rubio’s amnesty plan that even he claims not to back anymore, endorsed cap & trade and attacked Ted Cruz for being willing to shut down the government to stop Obamacare. How do you trust Fiorina on immigration, small government issues, taxes, pro-life issues, global warming or to even try to kill Obamacare after that? …” ——————————————————————– 8/17/2015 Trump’s Immigration Plan Sets Agenda Again http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/17/trumps-immigration-plan-sets-the-agenda-again/  7/26/2015 Ted Cruz Calls Mitch McConnel a Liar.  (It’s about time somebody did!) http://ashevilleteaparty.org/?p=11957 Cruz Wants Grassroots Tsunami Against Washington Cartel http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/07/26/after-stunning-takedown-of-mitch-mcconnell-on-senate-floor-ted-cruz-wants-to-stir-up-a-grassroots-tsunami-against-the-washington-cartel/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Firewire&utm_campaign=Firewire%20-%20HORIZON%207-26-15%20FINAL Seven Reasons The Donald Helps The GOP  http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2015/07/24/7-reasons-the-donald-helps-the-gop/ FreedomWorks CEO Cautions Activists About Supporting Trump http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/freedomworks-ceo-cautions-activists-about-supporting-donald-trump/article/2568766 Carly Fiorina Blasts Planned Parenthood.  Calls it “an abomination’  http://dailycaller.com/2015/07/26/an-abomination-fiorina-blasts-unbelievable-hypocritical-planned-parenthood-over-videos/ Trump Blasts Scott Walker For Leaving Wisconsin ‘In Turmoil’ Polls Show Walker Leading Trump in Iowa http://www.ibtimes.com/donald-trump-blasts-scott-walker-leaving-wisconsin-turmoil-new-polls-show-walker-2024909 ——————– 7/13/2015  Scott Walker Announces for President:  How We Turned Things Around in Wisconsin https://www.scottwalker.com/news/another-view-scott-walker-how-we-turned-things-around-wisconsin?utm_campaign=&utm_medium=Display&utm_source=brietbart Scott Walker’s Conundrum on Common Core http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2015/06/10/scott-walkers-common-core-conundrum/ Scott Walker Reverses Amnesty in Bid To Woo Conservative Voters http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/6/scott-walker-reverses-amnesty-support-in-bid-to-wo/?page=all 7/13/2015  Scott Walker Details his Trip to Israel Very Profound http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/07/13/exclusive-scott-walker-details-his-trip-to-israel-very-profound-to-walk-where-jesus-walked/ 7/13/2015 Amazon/Harpercollins/NY Times Lying About Ted Cruz’s Book Sales http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2015/07/13/amazon-harpercollins-the-new-york-times-is-lying-about-ted-cruzs-book-sales/ 7/13/2015 Donald Trump Fans:  Time For An Intervention http://www.nationalreview.com/article/421045/donald-trump-fraud 7/7/2015:  Bush and Cristi Battle For Last Place/Fiorina and Caron Do Well In Poll http://ashevilleteapac.org/jeb-bush-and-cris-cristi-battle-for-last-place/ ——————— 6/8/2015: Bretitbart’s 2016 Presidential Primary Straw Poll here http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/06/08/introducing-breitbart-primary-2016-online-straw-poll/ Scott Walker stole headlines in Iowa; Carson had the crowd http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/06/08/scott-walker-stole-headlines-in-iowa-dr-carson-had-the-crowd/ ——————— The Best and Worst Presidential Candidates on Illegal Immigration according to NC Listen  Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,  I will offer a few comments at this point in time on the best and worst of the 2016 Presidential candidates (either officially running or unofficially but obviously running).  NC LISTEN does not endorse candidates.  We only provide info on their positions. The two better Presidential candidates at this time on real immigration reform and enforcement are Scott Walker and Rick Santorum.  Both have articulated concerns for enforcement of our immigration laws, the need for less legal immigration based on our honest employment needs to include the real unemployment rate, and the fact that we have a worker surplus in the USA.  And for the most part why illegals should not be given privileges and a path to citizenship.   The worst two Presidential candidates on real immigration reform and enforcement are Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.  Hillary would go even beyond President Obama’s immigration-related executive actions, which are unconstitutional, in careless disregard for our nation and our unemployed citizens in order to attempt to curry favor with certain ethnic groups and special interests.  Jeb Bush disregards our real unemployment rate and worker surplus in the USA and wants to drastically increase immigration to further drive down wages.   Jeb has frequently tried to pontificate how he is more enlightened than we normal folk (of course no one but Jeb and some in the media actually thinks this) on immigration and how we need (in his words) “policy that shows respect for illegal immigrants”.   It might help if illegal immigrants showed equal respect for our nation and returned to their native country and/or didn’t break our immigration laws in the first place.  If we reward illegals, what are we to tell would-be legal immigrants who are waiting their turn in their native country and respecting our rule of law?

Thanks, Ron Woodard Director NC LISTEN   (919) 460-8156 www.nclisten.com  —————————————– The purpose of this page is to keep you informed of where possible presidential GOP candidates stand on the issues.  Check down to see the name of a candidate.  Click on the articles of interest.  Check back often for new articles and information. If anyone would like to take over this page to update it, please let me know ASAP.  Appreciate the help. jane@ashevilleteaparty.org.  828 692 3117 Also, if you have information of interest you wish to share with all of us, please forward info to jane@ashevilleteaparty.org.  The list of candidates below is by no means complete.  We will continue to update. Remember:  We support candidates who embrace – in word and deed – limited government, individual rights, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.  That means we will not support candidates who vote for or encourage amnesty, open borders, Obamacare (federal exchanges), Common Core, Ex-Im Bank, the Federal Reserve, Cap and Trade, or redistribution of wealth. We will not support candidates who oppose the Keystone Pipeline and fracking, and a strong national defense.   This list is, by no means, inclusive.  (See Article 2, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution for a list of powers delegated to the Federal government.) We do not abandon our principles or betray those who have supported us because a candidate or a GOP candidate wins the primary.  The refusal for blind allegiance causes great agitation and consternation from the GOP.  They fail to understand that we are not the Republican Party that has blurred the line between them and the Democrat Progressives. Both parties are guilty of destroying the very fabric of our nation.   The Republican Party does not hold their own accountable to the principles of their party which are the principles upon which our nation was founded – the  core principles of pro-growth economics, social conservatism, and a strong national defense.  A recent example:   The Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) on December 11, 2014, gave us Obamacare funding through October, and funded Obama’s Executive Amnesty. Have you checked the debt clock? 18 trillion and growing!  We hear crickets regarding NC Congresswoman Renee Elmers controversial stand on abortion and immigration.   Do you really think they heard you at the polls in November?? Do you really think they will seal the borders and not give millions of illegals amnesty? These RINOs represent their special interest groups, not We The People. In short, Article 2, Section 8 of our U.S. Constitution contains a list of 18 powers of the Federal government.  Check them out. If you want to restore our Republic and free us from the chains of socialism, we suggest you check the record of each candidate against the 18 delineated Constitutional powers. … Who passes Constitutional muster here …  Who will work to restore our Republic to Constitutional authority?

Candidates Corner updates. http://ashevilleteapac.org/presidential-candidates-corner/ The purpose of this page is to keep you informed of where possible presidential GOP candidates stand on the issues.  Check down to see the name of a candidate.  Click on the articles of interest.  Check back often for new articles and information. If anyone would like to take over this page to update it, please let me know ASAP.  Appreciate the help. jane@ashevilleteaparty.org.  828 692 3117 Also, if you have information of interest you wish to share with all of us, please forward info to jane@ashevilleteaparty.org.  The list of candidates below is by no means complete.  We will continue to update. Remember:  We support candidates who embrace – in word and deed – limited government, individual rights, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.  That means we will not support candidates who vote for or encourage amnesty, open borders, Obamacare (federal exchanges), Common Core, Ex-Im Bank, the Federal Reserve, Cap and Trade, or redistribution of wealth. We will not support candidates who oppose the Keystone Pipeline and fracking, and a strong national defense.   This list is, by no means, inclusive.  (See Article 2, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution for a list of powers delegated to the Federal government.) We do not abandon our principles or betray those who have supported us because a candidate or a GOP candidate wins the primary.  The refusal for blind allegiance causes great agitation and consternation from the GOP.  They fail to understand that we are not the Republican Party that has blurred the line between them and the Democrat Progressives.  Shame on them! Both parties are guilty of destroying the very fabric of our nation.   The Republican Party does not hold their own accountable to the principles of their party which are the principles upon which our nation was founded – the  core principles of pro-growth economics, social conservatism, and a strong national defense.  A recent example:   The Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) on December 11, 2014, gave us Obamacare funding through October, and funded Obama’s Executive Amnesty. Have you checked the debt clock? 18 trillion and growing!  We hear crickets regarding NC Congresswoman Renee Elmers controversial stand on abortion and immigration.   Do you really think they heard you at the polls in November?? Do you really think they will seal the borders and not give millions of illegals amnesty? These RINOs represent their special interest groups, not We The People. In short, Article 2, Section 8 of our U.S. Constitution contains a list of 18 powers of the Federal government.  Check them out. If you want to restore our Republic and free us from the chains of socialism, we suggest you check the record of each candidate against the 18 delineated Constitutional powers. … Who passes Constitutional muster here …  Who will work to restore our Republic to Constitutional authority?  Candidate information: http://ashevilleteapac.org/presidential-candidates-corner/
