The Electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President . . . .

The whole-hearted little lady you see standing up to the Sotelo Machine in the videos of the 37th district caucus is Tamra Smilanich.
Tamra refused to back down to Sotelo’s threats after defeating Sotelo’s latest “chosen one” to chair the caucus and then won the ongoing chairmanship of the 37th District Precinct Committee officers to become the only District Leader in King County Lori Sotelo can’t sack at whim.
Still under assault by the Establishment, Tamra is (more…)
Two bills relevant to PCO elections were introduced in Olympia this session.
The other, Sam Hunt’s HB 1860, will, predictably, eradicate the office of PCO as it exists under the current RCWs (which is also consistent with the ruling by Judge Coughenour in the Top Two lawsuit as we, alone, pointed out in January).
That bill, the bad one, has already quietly passed the House, with no notice to or input from Party members and will get a public hearing in Olympia tomorrow at 10AM.
Claiming also to revive the office it eradicates, the “Sam” bill (rumors are circulating that Sam Reed (R) is actually behind Sam Hunt’s (D) promulgation of Rep. Hurst’s bill) gives the Party Bosses a “briar patch” choice. Those of you familiar with the pre-political correctness stories of Uncle Remus will understand. See: The Briar Patch

Women, Children saved from Certain Disaster
From Ed Mohs:
Nearly 200 committed prayer volunteers prayed, fasted, and held peaceful vigil for 40 days to end abortion in Everett. This was the sixth coordinated campaign for Everett 40 Days for Life, part of the national 40 Days for Life ministry, with its roots in College Station, Texas. Everett was one of eight cities in Washington this fall 2010 effort, which began September 22 and ended October 31. Everett 40 Days for Life daily vigil took place at the Everett Planned Parenthood, 32nd and Hoyt. Two children and their moms were spared from the trauma of abortion. Another woman chose not to abort prior to September 22. Praise God! Prayers were offered for women to turn away from abortion; for women who have had abortions to receive the gift of repentance, leading to God’s love and mercy. We prayed for Planned Parenthood staff to see abortion as killing the preborn child; individuals and churches to awaken to the abortion violence and get involved in ending abortion in our community.
Everett Planned Parenthood closed three Fridays and early one Saturday during the 40 days. Everett 40 Days for Life prayer warriors distributed hundreds of life-saving educational brochures; rosaries, and Miraculous Medals were also given out.
With thanks to bloomergal.

LOCATIONS IN WASHINGTON (more…)
It is time for every American to stand up.
The Federal Reserve has operated in secrecy since its creation in 1913. Since that dreadful year, the dollar has lost 95% of its purchasing power. The Fed already brought about one Great Depression, and it appears that it’s bringing us into another – only this time Washington DC expects our fractured economy to rebuild with the very dollars it spent a century destroying.
This is why the coming weeks are going to be so important.
From now until September 15th, there will be a nationwide push to get a majority of US Senators to give their full support to S 604,
The Federal Reserve Sunshine Act. (more…)
A 15-year old King County girl was battered ://www.komonews.com/news/40436267.html by a “man” after being arrested in connection with an auto theft [for driving her parents' car]. The girl kicked off her shoes as she was placed in a holding cell and one of the shoes apparently hit the arresting officer. The “peace” officer, Paul Schene, 31, then kicked the girl in the hip, slammed her against the wall, then tackled her after yanking her hair and neck back. As she was subdued on the ground, and being handcuffed by another officer, the attacker struck once more, delivering two blows to the victim’s head.
Rancho Cucamonga, CA /Operation Rescue/— Three members of the Survivors were arrested on Tuesday, November 13, 2007, on Chaffey College campus in Rancho Cucamonga, California, in one of the most egregious displays of police misconduct that we have heard about in years.
The three young men, Joey Cox, and brothers James and Jason Conrad, were on campus to obtain permits for a pro-life outreach at the college. They had learned through many experiences to record their dealings for their protection. At Chaffey, the young men had both video and audio recorders running. (more…)

Giant speculative investment funds and oil companies now make tremendous profits raiding the oil spot-market, playing seemingly separate but implicitly cooperative roles serving up the same end-effect as Enron wreaked on California.
Remember what Enron did to California and millions of investors? It took advantage of deregulation in California, manipulating electricity prices by raiding the futures market, overscheduling power lines, and creating fears about shortages. PG&E went bankrupt because it could not raise rates to customers.(1) The whole thing unraveled, and Enron went down in flames in the biggest bankruptcy in American history. (more…)

(The morning after the 2008 Republican National Convention, that is)
By Colleen Parro, Executive Director of RNC for Life
Pro-life Republicans are being wined and dined, courted and wooed by an ever-growing assortment of candidates for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination. They all want us to think they are pro-life, or at least pro-life enough to garner our support in this or that presidential primary. Those who are flipping and flopping serve as testimony to the power and influence pro-life activists have within the Republican Party. They need us. They need us to win the nomination and, because the American people are split right down the middle, they need us to win back the White House.
While it’s nice to know we’re needed, and that finally the establishment politicians have been forced to recognize that, let’s be careful to not get carried away. There are a few true-blue pro-lifers seeking the Republican nomination, and there are others who will say what they have to say to get where they want to go. We have to let them know that we are not interested in platitudes. We want to know what they are actually going to DO to advance the cause of life.
The case of Senator John McCain comes to mind. Senator McCain, who justifies abortion (more…)
On Lincoln’s birthday, it’s a good time to remember the founding of the Republican Party. We were founded on a moral issue. We were founded on the principle that no man should ever be considered the property of another. Ronald Reagan, who’s birthday we also celebrated recently, saw the correlation between slavery and abortion. As he wrote in Abortion and the Conscience of a Nation:
Despite the formidable obstacles before us, we must not lose heart. This is not the first time our country has been divided by a Supreme Court decision that denied the value of certain human lives. The Dred
Scott decision of 1857 was not overturned in a day, or a year, or even a decade. At first, only a minority of Americans recognized and deplored the moral crisis brought about by denying the full humanity of our black brothers and sisters; but that minority persisted in their vision and finally prevailed. They did it by appealing to the hearts and minds of their countrymen, to the truth of human dignity under God. From their example, we know that respect for the sacred value of human life is too deeply engrained in the hearts of our people to remain forever suppressed. But the great majority of the American people have not yet made their voices heard, and we cannot expect them to —any more than the public voice arose against slavery — until the
issue is clearly framed and presented.
We now remember the words of President Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address:
Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth
upon this continent a new nation: conceived in liberty, and
dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war. . .testing whether
that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated. . .
can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war.
We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place
for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.
It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate. . .we cannot consecrate. . .
we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead,
who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power
to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember,
what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.
It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished
work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining
before us. . .that from these honored dead we take increased devotion
to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion. . .
that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. . .
that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom. . .
and that government of the people. . .by the people. . .for the people. . .
shall not perish from the earth.
In honor of President Lincoln, let’s renew our “dedication to the promise that all men are created equal.” Let’s dedicate ourselves with “increased devotion” to the “unfinished work”.
Let’s rediscover our roots as Republicans. We are not merely about lower taxes. If we are, we deserve every bit of criticism for being greedy pigs, out to help “the rich get richer”. Our party doesn’t exist “to win elections” either. Rather, we are about what is right, and we exist to do what’s right. Let’s choose our leaders, candidates and issues accordingly.
The 2008 presidential campaign has begun. Candidates are already
making appearances around the country, especially in early-primary and
early-caucus states. Voters should evaluate policies and promises in
order to determine who are the real conservatives. Here are questions
that grassroots citizens should require candidates to answer —
along with follow-up questions (marked below with •) so you can
pin them down and prevent them from responding with generalities and
hot air. This list of questions is a work-in-progress, and you are
invited to send additional questions to the Phyllis Schlafly Report so
we can provide updates.
More support for Tancredo, now from World Net Daily columnist, Jane Chastain:
Tom Tancredo is
well-known and deeply appreciated by the party’s conservative base and
he’s got charisma that fills a room and literally oozes out the doors
and onto the street. It is the kind that comes from deeply rooted
convictions that rise up from the soul and excite those around him, not
the kind manufactured by Madison Avenue that, after the initial
excitement, leaves you with an empty feeling and a bad aftertaste.
On his accross the board, conservative and pro-life credentials:
He has received rating
of "A" or better on his voting record from the American Conservative
Union, the National Right to Life Committee, the National Rifle
Association, Family Research Council, Americans for Better Immigration
and the National Federation of Independent Business.
Jane gives us this reminder though:
His is a candidacy that
can ignite the grass roots. His fate, however, depends on our
willingness to put early money behind our rhetoric.
Have you contributed yet? If not, go here.
Meanwhile, V-Dare has this piece on the challenges Tancredo faces in building a conservative coalition paired with his ability to mobilize a movement on the issue of illegal immigration, including "Lou Dobbs Democrats". The question is, will our pro-life movement broaden our perspective, take the right position on illegal immigration and join Tancredo’s movement?
Today, Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project made the following statement:
The Minuteman Project will provide its full and unconditional
support to Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Co.) in his efforts to represent
America as the next President. Mr. Tancredo is the
political pioneer that inspired me to create The Minuteman Project.
The millions of supporters of all the minuteman/woman groups across
the nation stand ready to give their time and resources to a great
American who will humbly and sincerely strive to represent all
Americans and who will guide this nation back to governance by the
people and under the rule of law.
There is no better candidate for president of The United States of America than Colorado’s honorable Tom Tancredo.

If you’re a reader from Washington’s 19th district, you have the opportunity to vote for and support an excellent pro-life candidate. If you’re not from the 19th, that’s OK too. You can still send him a check. Tim Sutinen, an immigrant from Finland and proud American, who has previously run for state representative, will be running in this years special election for state senator. (The special election is being held since the former state senator, Mark Doumit resigned and Brian Hatfield-D was appointed to temporarily fill the seat.)
Tim has the potential to be a rising star in Washington politics. He’s bright, articulate, and has a keen understanding and appreciation for American principles on a broad range of issues.
Here is Tim in his own words on life issues:
My views on life issues are pretty simple:
- life begins at conception
- abortion in all of its forms is wrong
- human life must be protected from womb to old age
- My wife & I are optimistic about the future: We have eight children. (Tim is shown above having fun with his family)

Immediately following the big Republican losses in Novemnber, Ken Marotte, a bright young writer and conservative pro-life activist, reviewing the reasons for the losses, moved forward and gave his endorsement of Tom Tancredo for President. The column was featured at Renew America. Here is an exerpt:
Even the most pessimistic of Republican observers predicted the GOP to keep one house of Congress. But surpassing all expectations, the Democrats took hold of America’s entire legislative branch. On Nov. 8, a stunned and disappointed Bush mused that Democrats "did a superb job in turning out the vote."
A correction is due — Republicans, not Democrats, turned out the vote in favor of the Democratic Party. Republicans have continued to push the flawed war in Iraq — an issue vital to voters and opposed by two-thirds of the country. Perhaps worse, on an abundance of other issues, the President and his party have run away from principle and into the arms of political expediency.
With the damage done, Republicans quickly look forward to 2008. Who will lead our party as presidential contender? Learning from the past few years, our next candidate has got to have sturdy convictions, an open mind, and an independent personality. (Click here to continue reading.)
It’s official! Tom Tancredo has formed his exploratory committee. The announcement today was greatly anticipated. Congressman Tom Tancredo of Colorado, known mostly for his outspoken opposition to illegal immigration and "guest-worker"/ amnesty for illegal aliens, has had numerous conservative columnists and bloggers calling for a "draft Tancredo" campaign.
Those supporting other Republican nominees, have often called him a "one issue candidate", but Tancredo has the potential to not only unite Republicans by his unwavering stance on issues important to conservatives, but could also offer a vision of America likely to excite the average American, the way Ronald Reagan did. His no-nonsense approach, outspoken disdain for the politics of compromise that whittles away at American principles of freedom and justice, being equally critical of Democrats and Republicans, is just the kind of straight talk that makes the average American say, "Yes! Now that’s a man who stands up for what’s right!"
What pro-lifers may not know: So far, Tancredo is the only presidential hopeful who has clearly expressed his support for an amendment to the constitution protecting life. From his exploratory website:
As a devout Christian, father, and grandfather, I am a strong believer in the rights to life for the unborn child. I also believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. For years, activist judges have undermined both life and marriage. As president I would stop this by appointing strict constructionists as judges, reining in the power of the judiciary, and supporting constitutional amendments that respect marriage and life.
But Tancredo faces an uphill battle, to be sure. The establishment Republicans will certainly be lined up against him. In fact, he has entered this race because of the "void that exists" for a conservative candidate, namely on the issue of illegal immigration, but one who is both a true social and pro-life conservative and is serious about securing our borders and policies that discourage illegal immigration. Of course, he knows this is an uphill battle:
"It’s delusional to suggest that this would not be anything but a David and Goliath situation, but after all, David won," Tancredo told the Des Moines Register in an interview published yesterday. "Things like this happen in politics, but no matter what happens, it will force America to focus on these issues."
UPDATE: La Shawn Barber, "Sweetheart of the Blogosphere", supports a Tancredo presidency! She also offers her Christian perspective on illegal immigration.
