RON KLEIN - The embarrassment of Florida's District 22

I find that one of Ron Klein's most disturbing characteristics, aside from his put-offish physical appearance (I refer to his insipid, smarmy, slightly-effeminate facial expression atop his uniform of choice, that faded, rumpled once-blue suit), is his ability to espouse positions that are 180 degrees the opposite of his true viewpoints and beliefs.

Now, who am I to make such a statement? I am an Honorably Discharged veteran of the U.S. Navy who served during WWII (1944-1946). I am a full-time resident (12 years) of the State of Florida; a home owner in Palm Beach County; a registered Republican voter in PB County; a retired industrial designer who headed a successful business for 38 years;
and an active participant who works in support of local Conservative candidates for elected office, who are determined to achieve a smaller, smarter Federal government and most importantly, who are sworn to uphold the original intent of The Constitution of the United States of America.

And, how can I have the temerity to make such a judgement without supporting evidence of either a professional psychiatric evaluation or a documented confession? In the first place, it is quite obvious that neither of these 'proofs of purchase exist, nor are they ever likely to. So, taking my case to court seeking either satisfaction or redress against Klein's woeful misrepresentation on behalf of the citizens of Congressional District 22, is not an option. Beside that, I reside in District 19.

My qualifications for making these judgements are as follows:

1) As a native-born citizen of the United States, I am granted the precious right of free speech by that lovely First Amendment of The Constitution. While that freedom still exists, I'll continue to say what I mean and mean what I say.

2) I am familiar with the Klein's public utterances and his activities including his committee associations, activities and his history of go-along-to-get-along voting, from published accounts in the local papers and in The Congressional Record and from personal observation of his appearances at public functions.

3) My vision, hearing and sense of smell are all still functioning acutely, thank you. So, I can still see, hear and smell a phoney from a mile away.

Klein's 'deaf-ear' response to legitimate questions regarding the suitability of the selection and latent vetting of Keith Ellison to serve on the committee charged with the oversight of anti-Semitic activities, is typical of his weasel-like avoidance of important issues. This cowardly response typifies Klein's behavior, despite his frequent spewing of self-serving rhetoric to the contrary.

Klein is corrupt and cowardly. And as such, it is quite understandable that he has neither the moral or the physical courage to stand up to the pressures put upon him by the operatives of the nefarious radical Islamist cohorts of his fellow-committee-man, the radical Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota. Ellison you will recall, took the oath to 'preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States' while his hand rested on a copy of the Quoran.
There can be no more diverse documents than our straight-forward Constitution and the Quoran. The latter being a mixed bag of quasi-religious precepts and a 'How-to' manual of 'death-to-the-infidels' instruction for the blood-thirsty element of its followers. How duplicitous and hypocritical is that?

Ellison has yet to speak a word of denial or repudiation of any of the overtly anti-American, openly anti-Semitic, anti-USA, and blatantly anti-Israel utterances and actions of CAIR and the dozens of other pseudo-independent groups that operate under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood.

These groups by whatever name they've given themselves, are all about the insinuation of their ideology by hook or crook, into every aspect of our free society for the ultimate purpose of controlling our population via the institution of Sharia 'law'. Their two primary tactics for bringing about compliance on the part of their target-victims are quite simple:

1) BRIBERY - this can take the form of outright gifts of cash or political payoff or,

2) PHYSICAL THREAT - this can take the form of real threats against the life and limbs of the target-victim himself or members of his family.

One or the other of these intimidating tactics is pretty much guaranteed to work against a corrupt and cowardly 'elected official such as Ron Klein. As I see it - Klein, a no-longer practicing ambulance-chasing attorney clings to his public office because that is all he has. He has no track record of genuine accomplishment in terms of public service, beyond his own carefully crafted, self-aggrandizing statements of minor or at best, questionable 'service to veterans or aged constituents.

Klein's only reason for being is to bask in the reflected glory of visible public office and to wield such power and glean such benefits as he can from that office. I have no doubt that he steals rubber bands and paper clips in addition to his government salary, franking privileges and after he is bounced from office, a lifetime pension.

Hence, the title of this rant against the runt: RON KLEIN - The embarrassment of Florida's District 22.

[Ed. note on the Ed. note: this is from a former Chicago lawyer now practicing law in Tyler, TX]

[Ed. note: This is legit. I checked it out myself at Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. Its the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois ; and they are very strict and mean as hell. (Talk about irony!) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn.]

Big surprise!!!

Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and US President Makes Up Constitutional Quotes During State Of The Union (SOTU) Address.

Consider this:

1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a lawyer. He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

A Voluntary Surrender is not something where you decide Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it? and forget to renew your license. No, a Voluntary Surrender is something you do when you've been accused of something, and you voluntarily surrender you license five seconds before the state suspends you.

2. Michelle Obama voluntarily surrendered her law license in 1993.

3. So, we have the President and First Lady who don't actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

4. A senior lecturer is one thing... A fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago .

5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama(D-Ill.) served as a professor in the law school but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

6. He did not hold the title of professor of law, said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law .

Source: ;

7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the US Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence not the Constitution.

8. The B-Cast posted the video:

9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal.

10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech???

When you are a phony it's hard to keep facts straight.

Most likely you've heard that term before, but probably didn't know the definition – just like me, until I looked it up.

It is defined as: “Anxiety that results from simultaneously holding contradictory or incompatible attitudes, beliefs or the like, in other words, seeing one thing and believing another”

Politicians (but mostly Democrat politicians) usually fall victim to this aberration. To listen to today's politicians, they all seem to be in favor of “balanced budgets”, but we still have unbalanced budgets year after year. They all seem to see the light and the righteousness of balancing the budget, but do just the opposite in practice.

President Obama keeps saying that in these dire down economic times, we should all make sacrifices, but then goes out and plays over 52 rounds of golf during these dire down economic times. Is that what you call sacrificing? Of course, even the President should enjoy some recreation/vacation time, but isn't it a bit much when you can do all that golf and also go on 4 family vacations at posh resorts over the summer when many others don't even have a job or an income? He should've set an example for the rest of us to follow.

Our foreign policy towards Israel is another case in point where “cognitive dissonance” is in play. Our leaders see and say that Israel should stop building settlements because it might rile up the “Palestinians”, but never mention the rocket attacks upon innocent Israeli citizens as the reason why the Israeli's are reluctant to negotiate with the terrorists. Seeing one thing but believing another seems to be the “modus operandi” of the Obama Administration.

To further illustrate my point, the movers and shakers in our government, realize that our education system is in dire straits, even with a record amount of money being spent to make education better, but then they ask for more money on top of the money they have already wasted by their failed educational policies. It's like throwing more good money (which we have very little of) down the proverbial rat hole. A perfect example is the Wash. D.C. Schools. About 5 years ago, Wash. D.C. Instituted a “school voucher” program, on a pilot basis, to give some kids (approx. 1,500 kids) the opportunity to attend a private or parochial school. From all indications, the parents (and the kids) loved it and the students attending these private schools were thriving in that environment. So what happens, the teachers union, the major benefactor of the Democrats, objected and convinced the Congress to pull the plug, with the acquiescence of Obama, thereby putting those 1,500 students back into the failing Wash. D.C. public schools. If that isn't “cognitive dissonance” than I don't know what it is?

The stupidity of the Congress and the stupidity of the residents of Wash. D.C., by voting out the Mayor and having the innovative school superintendent resign, shows that, in some cases, people deserve what they get. They “cut off their noses to spite their faces” is a saying that certainly describes the actions of these stupid people who are the poster children for the term “cognitive dissonance”. Agree?

Klein Signs Of The Times

Greetings my fellow Americans:
I've just returned from early voting at the Library on Hagen Ranch Road in Delray Beach and then, running an errand that took me into the northern reaches of Boca Raton.

As a result of passing hundreds of political signs planted one after another in the median strips, printed in every color in the rainbow - I'm practically blinded from that blur of color and I'm mildly myopic from all the clever, pithy-punchy printed messages.

Okay, okay. I get it. Each candidate wants to call attention to himself or herself by using any and all the graphic gimmicks they and their creative sign makers could conceive. Bold type predominates and Stars and Stripes abound, No problem with that.

However, standing out in that blur, were one candidate's signs that are peculiarly unique. The reason? Because right smack in the middle of his name (KLEIN), there appears a large red star. Excuse me? A large RED STAR!

Now, if the stars in our beautiful American flag, originally designed back in George Washington's day, are depicted in pure white and displayed on a field of true blue, it seems to me that's the proper way for American stars to appear.

From my study of world history and my own observation over the years, I've been aware that 'Red stars' have always been pretty much, the graphic symbol of choice for the Communists, Marxists, Socialists and other of their ilk. Stalin loved it. Chairman Mao adopted it. The USSR practically ran out of red stencil ink plastering the red star onto everything from the army's tanks to the butts of political prisoners.

So, what in hell - and what kind of twisted logic may I ask, would impel Ron Klein to plaster a large red star right in the middle of his name on his campaign signs? Could it be that he and his Campaign-of-Corruption cronies are that clueless about the significance of the red star - or, do they actively embrace the principles of the current president and his army of Saul Alinsky disciples who slavishly embrace the tenants of Communism, Marxism, Socialism and every other 'ism' that has met with dismal failure throughout modern history, every time it has been resurrected?

Which is it Herr Klein? Your blind obedience and whole-hearted support of Obama Socialism - or your unforgivable, dyed-in-the-wool Democrat arrogance born of decades of ingrained hypocrisy and colossal stupidity?

A RED STAR, indeed. What else do you need to know about Ron Klein? - - - except, that there is a most viable and superbly qualified candidate who is running against him for the seat he now occupies from Florida's District 22 in the U. S. House of Representatives.

His opponent's name is, ALLEN WEST. He is an American - through and through. When he looks up toward the Heavens as he does every day, he sees a sky full of bright, white stars.

And oh yes by the way - LTC. ALLEN WEST (U.S.Army, Retired) holds a Bronze Star awarded to him for Valor, earned by his courageous actions under fire, in combating the enemies of the United States, in the Middle East.

And as a public servant, his star continues to rise.

Would you care to do your part in bringing this nation back to the principles on which it was founded?

If it Quacks Like a Duck.......

The old expression which went like this, “If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it must be a duck”, could easily be applied to our “Appeaser in Chief”, Barack Hussein Obama, when he is labeled as a Socialist/Marxist (according to a recent poll over 50% of those polled labeled him a Socialist). He scoffs at the connotation, but when he says that we should “redistribute the wealth”, he quacks like a Marxist duck, when he goes around the world apologizing for the past actions of the U.S.A., he walks like a self-hating American duck, and when he goes on vacation to plush resorts and plays many rounds of golf during national emergencies, he looks and acts like an elitist duck. To some of his Kool-Aid drinking supporters, those depictions are unfair and to some, are racist (What else is new? That's the label they use for anyone who criticizes him).

Some say you can judge a person by the company he keeps or the friends he hangs around with. Let's look at that for a moment as so much is unknown about his life (most of which he has deliberately kept under wraps). Here's what we do know, when Obama was growing up in Hawaii, he had a family friend, Frank Marshall Davis, as a confidant and a mentor. It is commonly known that Davis was a card carrying Communist who was under surveillance by the F.B.I. In his book, Obama referred to Davis as his mentor during his teenage years, Do you think the Socialist/Marxist philosophy was bandied about by Obama and his mentor during this time of his life? Dollars to donuts says that would most likely be the case. Teenagers are very impressionable during that time of their lives.

When he left Hawaii to attend college on the mainland, he stated, in his book, that he hung around and clung to leftist friends and leftist-oriented professors whom he felt comfortable with. I'm sure the usual Socialist/Marxist theories, prevalent in college, abounded around him during these years of self-awakening.

When he arrived in Chicago at the end of the 80's and showed a leaning toward starting a career in politics, he became a Community Organizer, and worked with the Socialist organization ACORN. During this time, who did he attach himself to for guidance and support? You guessed it, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ, a virulent anti-Semite, anti-American, “Black Liberation” preacher who has identified himself as a Socialist. His friends in Chicago, during his preparation for a political career, included the self-proclaimed domestic terrorists, Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, who have proclaimed that they are Marxists besides being part of the former terrorist group, the “Weather Underground”. In addition, while he was a law instructor at the University of Chicago, he became close friends with Rashid Khalidi, a professor at the school and a supporter of militant Muslim causes.

As President, he has surrounded himself with a preponderance of leftist-oriented people including known Communists Van Jones (since departed from the Administration) and Gary Samore, and admitted Socialists such as Mark Lloyd, Donald Berwick, Cass Sunstein, Carol Browner, Rahm Emanuel, Ron Bloom, John Holdren, Ashton Carter etc., etc.

So when people call Obama a Socialist/Marxist they are making an honest evaluation as to what his political philosophy is. You could say that if he quacks like a Socialist, walks like a Socialist, and looks and acts like a Socialist, he must be a Socialist. Does anybody disagree with that conclusion?

Mort's Meanderings:

The Great Depression is no longer singularly defined by what occurred after Wall Street collapsed in 1929.

The latest version of the Great Depression is what has occurred as a result of the unfortunate election of Barack Hussein Obama.

In human terms, this latest Great Depression has taken the form of a belated awakening of that 53% of Americans (or a great majority of them) who voted-in this disastrous Socialist ideologue and his retinue of America-hating, lunatic bunglers and elitist pretenders.

Talk about your 'great depression'. Talk about 'voter's remorse'.

It is the sacred duty of every eligible voter in these United States to get off the couch and get to the polls on November 2nd. It is up to each of us who love this nation as it has evolved for all the years prior to the most recent election, to vote out this disgusting batch of misguided miscreants in the Administration and those proven-corrupt members of this Congress.

There is a tidal wave of new candidates who have bravely decided to stand for election to public office, people who espouse conservative principles. Let's vote them into office, give them the opportunity to represent us - and dedicate ourselves to monitoring their actions, closely.

It is the absolute truth: We get the government we deserve.

So, it is up to each of us to prove that we deserve better - to demand better - and to become personally involved to assure that we really do deserve and we really do get, better government.

Yeah, I know the olde Ben Franklin quote is, “A penny saved is a penny earned”, but we are in the “Age of Obama” where the word “saved” is seldom used and only the word “spend” is the acceptable word to use in the White House and the halls of
Congress. Think of all the money that has been wasted in the grand attempt to jump start this devastating recession we've been in, and this is only the beginning. The “Anointed One's” policies are just starting to kick in and the worst is yet to come. Friends, this combo of Frick and Frack (Obama and Biden) are after your wallets and pocketbooks - the “Pied Pipers of Cluelessness” are coming after you with a vengeance, especially if you earn over $200,000 per year. He wants to punish you for being successful, how does that grab you? I'll now be accused of spreading fear, but is it fear or just plain commonsense coming to the fore to explain the destructive policies of this, the most profligate spending Administration in Wash. D.C. history?

It seems that “throwing” money at a problem is what the incompetent President and his Administration are wont to do. It doesn't matter to them whether previous attempts at throwing money at a problem worked or not. I guess if you don't know the
difference between an asset and a liability, like most all the people in the Obama Administration, you'll make those kind of mistakes. Remember, only 8% of the people in his Administration (Obama has 0%) have had any meaningful, hands-on business experience whatsoever. As I said in a previous editorial, the “Peter Principle” is
alive and well in the White House and among the many “lemming” liberals in Congress.

You'll have to admit Obama and his cronies talk a good ballgame, saying all the things that they think you want to hear. I, for one, am allergic to B.S., and every time I see Obama and Biden pontificating over our “Summer of Recovery”, I break out in a rash. How can these legal “wizards” (they are both non-practicing lawyers) say the nonsense they do and keep a straight face? And we thought Reagan was a “B” actor, these guys have him beat by a mile, and we're still counting..

But, you can only B.S. the public for so long. After almost two years, the people have Obama and Biden pegged as governing bunglers (with the exception of the liberal Kool-Aid drinkers who still think these two Keystone Kops are the greatest). It shows you where their heads are at. The voters are poised to take it out on the Democrat incumbent Congressmen and Senators this coming November. A political “bloodbath” is in the works. Once we pry the money spigot away from Obama and the liberals, we'll be able to somewhat control the “evil” policies they want to shove down our throats again, and in the process, bankrupt our country.

If that happens, old Ben Franklin's saying of, “A penny saved is a penny earned” will have the same meaningful definition it once had before Obama and his henchmen took over. Now, let's go do the right thing.

VFW PAC Endorsement

From: MORT KUFF - Registered resident of Florida and U.S.Navy vet - 1944-1946.

To: Col. Lee F. Kichen (U.S.Army Retired)

Re: VFW PAC endorsement of Ron Klein (Dist.22 Florida)

Dear Col. Kichen.

No one could be more outraged at the endorsement of Ron Klein by the VFW PAC, than I am. The singular, ill-advised action of this veterans organization cannot be justified by either Klein's inappropriate assignment to a committee whose actions affect this nation's veterans or by his voting record since sitting on that committee.

Klein, who never wore the uniform and never served in any branch of the U.S. Military Armed Forces, is just about the last person imaginable to be assigned to a House Veterans Committee because of his total lack of related experience, his absence of aptitude or his lack of pertinent qualifications.

His assignment to that position by Speaker Nancy Pelosi was all about the internal Democrat politics of the U.S. House of Representatives and nothing whatever to do with the condition or welfare of the Dept. of Veterans Affairs.

For the VFW PAC to endorse this candidate over retired LTC. Allen West, a decorated career officer in the U.S. Army, with 22 years active service that includes commanding troops in shooting wars on foreign battlefields, is simply unconscionable.

There must have been some behind the scenes shenanigans for this endorsement to have been perpetrated on the rank and file members of VFW. I've attended VFW meetings here in Florida and from the standing ovations that I have witnessed when LTC. West is welcomed each time he has appeared, I can attest to the universal regard and affection in which this man is held by local VFW members.

The VFW PAC would do well to re-think this egregious error and take remedial action, before they embarrass their fine organization in front of this nation.

Do Liberals Have a False Ego Problem?

Liberals think they are better than most Americans because, according to them, they care more deeply about the environment, minorities, and human rights, when in fact, they really only care about themselves.

To listen to the liberals, anybody who opposes their agenda is stupid, a nut-job, a racist, a Nazi or a Fascist, or a milder slur like being called an idiot etc. The main reason, I conclude, is that they really can't debate or justify their policies in a rational manner, therefore, they must minimalize their opponents by calling them vile names and by making untrue statements to try to put the opposition in a bad light by verbally assaulting them personally, thereby making them less credible in the eyes of the public, or so they think.

A good example of this tactic is in regards to “profiling”. When Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed SB 1070 into law to enforce the immigration law to help them stem the flow of illegal aliens swarming over the border of Arizona, they immediately called the law “racial profiling”, even though the law specifically stated that law enforcement officials could not “profile” people unless they were stopped for committing another infraction. The Democrats didn't care, even though most of them didn't even read the law, including the Attorney General of the United States, they in their infinite wisdom believed that the law was what they said it was, “racial profiling”. These same sanctimonious hypocrites engaged in real “racial profiling” by labeling all the Tea Party protesters as white racists, anarchists, bigots, Nazi's, and local yokels and rednecks. According to them, if you attended or sympathized with the Tea Party protests, you fit their profile and were eligible to be called one of those vile epithets. If that isn't “profiling”, than I don't know what it is? Only people with a false ego could make the jump to that erroneous conclusion.

Another example of where their ego gets in the way of rational decisions, is in the way they proceed to implement their pseudo- Socialist agenda. Poll after poll has shown that the American people did not want the ObamaCare bill, but they shoved it down our throats anyway. In their self- aggrandizing way, they knew better than anyone else and it was just the stupidity of the people that influenced those poll numbers. The same is true with the other initiatives that the people have said they DON'T want such as, the Cap and Trade (Tax) Climate bill, the Card Check bill, which would do away with “secret ballot” elections in union representation elections, and by the letting of the Bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year.

Only someone with a narcissistic personality and an inflated ego would impose his will over the common sensibilities of the American people and go against their wishes.

So the answer to the beginning question is “YES”, the Democrats and our President do have a false ego problem that might only be cured by a massive defeat of them at the polls on November 2nd. Now go do the right thing and vote the bums (egoists) out of office on election day.
