Walsh v The Communist Duckworth
Walsh’s opponent: The Duckworth Scorecard
The Illinois 8th Congressional District [CD] is currently held by Republican Joe Walsh. But, the Democrat-controlled redistricting commission re-drew the IL-8th specifically to include the home of Democratic candidate Tammy Duckworth. Check out this Gerrymandering. Duckworth’s house is at the end of Bolleana Ct.
Tammy Duckworth, was appointed by Mr. Obama for Assistant Secretary for Veterans Affairs, lost her first Congressional District-06 race in 2006 to Peter Roskam, after first being mooted as a candidate for US Senate – from Hawaii. Congressman Walsh was first elected to Congress in 2010. He is a fiscal conservative, Illinois native, Catholic, and Walsh’s bio has shown a dedication in life to service.
In a legitimate comparable tone – Ms. Duckworth can best be described as a controversial ultra-liberal progressive heavily funded by out-of-state special interests and the establishment Chicago machine. Mr. Walsh has been described as a ‘controversial Tea Party-backed freshman.’ She will follow a trajectory of spend, tax, spend; He has been particularly vocal in urging Congress to cut taxes and spending.
For the voters in the IL-8th, this is not a Coke vs. Pepsi decision.
There are clear ties between the Democratic Party’s Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The DSA of America of Rockford, Ill. financially supported Barack Obama to run for Illinois State Senate. And in 2006, Ms. Duckworth garnered support from the Communist Party USA and far-left communist Frank Lumpkin as reported in Peoples World. Her 2012 endorsements are a ‘who’s who’ in radical-left abortion groups and labor ties.
And in 2008, the Editors and writers of the Socialist paper ‘In These Times’ selected Ms. Duckworth as one of their preferred top progressive choices for a potential Obama Cabinet position. Their goal was to influence Mr. Obama in representing the most aggressive, progressive Cabinet in contemporary history and to mandate Mr. Obama’s progressive change.
Other members included uber far-left progressives such as Massachusetts progressive candidate Elizabeth Warren, Sec. Kathleen Sebelius, Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s Sr. Adviser and brain behind the throne, and Charles Ogletree, a tireless advocate for social justice causes.
Ms. Duckworth is also friends with the Muslim advocacy group CAIR. CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood group. They were named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history. And notably, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have severed all ties with CAIR because of their ties to terrorism and Hamas.
While Mr. Walsh has warned of a radical strain of Islam in the USA, including the Chicago suburbs, Ms. Duckworth claimed such talk was inflammatory, propagating fear, hate, and isolating Muslims. Yet, on Sept 14, 2012 a Muslim man was arrested after attempting to detonate a car bomb in front of a busy downtown Chicago bar. Watch Mr. Walsh, one-month prior, as he warned us to the homegrown threat that radical Islam poses to America.
After a rigorous undercover FBI operation, along with 20 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, the affidavit alleges that, Abel Daoud confirmed his belief in killing Americans in a terrorist attack. Mr. Daoud is from the Chicago suburbs. You can view the bar via Google HERE. So on Sept 16th, just days after the FBI-foiled Jihad bomber “Muslim terrorist attack’, what does uber left-wing Ms. Duckworth do?
She doubled down in her Muslim-CAIR support, put on a hijab and stated: the growing minority population makes the white community uncomfortable, and whites would have to overcome their ‘racism.’ The Executive Director of the Chicago chapter of Hamas-CAIR, Ahmed Rehab, introduced her. For his part, Congressman Walsh, a member of the Homeland Security Committee, issued the following statement of the thwarted terrorist attack.
Beyond Ms. Duckworth’s Muslim ties, she carefully crafts a message of being part of the 99%, despite owning a private plane and two homes. She also asserts those in IL-08 district are better off today than they were four years ago. The IL-08 district is a ghost town of shut down businesses and the job-killing policies of Obama-Pelosi, which Ms. Duckworth supports, are crushing IL-08’s economy.
Ms. Duckworth is the hand-picked choice of Rahm Emanuel, Nancy Pelosi, Mr. Obama and the corrupt Chicago Machine. Her campaign is being run by Obama Advisor and Democrat-machine loyalist David Axelrod. But, the ‘Chicago Style Politics’ of decay, graft, patronage, and taxes is fatiguing the suburban and collar county voters.
Suburbanites, already fooled once into voting for an “independent Democrat” when Melissa Bean foisted Obamacare on her constituents against their wishes, are not in the mood to choose a Pelosi rubber stamper to “represent” them in Congress with Chicago Mayor Emanuel looking over their shoulder.
Her admirer, besides mentor Mr. Obama, is the most Progressive member in Congress, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, who stated in this video, ‘Americans don’t deserve to keep all their money,’ asserting the IRS should have the right to take up to 49% of your earned money in taxes. In 2006, her lobbyist husband, was convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion and served time in prison.
In Chicago, Ms. Duckworth is what we would call, a “patronage” pick for a job. Patronage always trumps talent. She was originally part of, the now convicted felon, Gov. Rod Blagojevich (Blago) crew of Illinois state agency appointees – that by itself should draw a huge warning flag for anyone who is contemplating voting for her, left or right.
That warning flag became reality in August when Chicago’s Daily Herald reported Ms. Duckworth improperly claimed two homeowner exemptions, i.e., tax evasion, and worse, during those years, she was actually living in Washington, D.C., not Illinois. In light of all this, these revelations look even more hypocritical when Mr. Axelrod accused Mitt Romney of avoiding taxes while hosting fundraisers for Ms. Duckworth.
But another warning flag was raised Sept 4, 2012 when The Washington Examiner reported while formerly serving as Undersecretary of the VA, Ms. Duckworth was involved in the direct planning of a $2.5 million boondoggle to Hawaii. This was the third such conference uncovered during her tenure at the VA, which cumulatively amounted to over $8 million in wasted VA funds.
If elected, expect Ms. Duckworth to vote for increased taxes on ‘the rich’, small business owners and job creators while expanding federal authority on the citizen and government spending under the guise of ‘infrastructure spending’ – as outlined in her jobs and economic plan.
Ms. Duckworth’s plan for getting ‘America back to work’ includes expanding public-sector jobs and government infrastructure works; transportation, public school modernization, roads and bridges, expanded parks and public lands – all union-based jobs. She favors expanding access to federal grants and short-term tax ‘credits’, not long-term tax ‘cuts’, and more federal stimulus spending.
If elected, Ms. Duckworth would pursue the legislative track of a single-payer health care system – just like Canada – broadening Obamacare mandates and taxes imposed on states and individuals, not repeal of the law. Notably, one of the most politically brazen features of Obamacare is Democrats cutting $716 billion from Medicare seniors to fund Mr. Obama’s signature health care plan.
The latest CBO assessment, states Obamacare will now cost $2.6 Trillion instead of originally stated $960 Billion. Beyond regulations imposed on business and medicine, driving doctors out of practice, it’s biggest losers is the costly job-killing of the least educated and least skilled-workers in society as small business owners are forced to grapple with the financial implications and costs of its enormous tax increases and federal mandates.
In 2006, Ms. Duckworth supported Amnesty and recently stated she hasn’t changed her ‘immigration’ position. Rabidly anti-gun, she favors stringent gun control laws nationally. Financially supported by Planned Parenthood Illinois Action (PPIA), she believes government should provide free contraception to women; to think otherwise is a direct attack on women.
She also doesn’t believe men of faith who take a vow of celibacy are qualified to discuss religious freedom and contraception. And, in her May debate performance, Ms. Duckworth called her constituents who believe in smaller government and fiscal restraint – the howling call of tea party members – as ‘crackpots ideas’.
Please watch this debate exchange. Or, click to see the entire debate in four parts: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV. Notably, NBC News declared Mr. Walsh the clear winner in the debate, stating that for Ms. Duckworth, the best thing that happened for her was ‘it took place at 6 pm Friday night’.
Ms. Duckworth is a far-left secularist who would vote in progressive lockstep with the Democrat Party’s Congressional Progressive Caucus [CPC], founded by Bernie Sanders, the openly socialist Congressman from Vermont, the Democratic Socialists of America(DSA), CAIR and the radical Washington DC based “think tank” Institute for Policy Studies (IPS).
Their members embrace socialist policies for higher taxes, federal bailouts, gun control, government-free contraceptives, Federal-funded abortions, and more welfare-state spending. In 2006, when her first Congressional opponent Peter Roskam confronted Ms. Duckworth on her radical gun-control desires, she played her ‘Wounded Veteran Card’.
She lost that election.
Let’s hope the good-minded folks in the IL-8th come to the same conclusion. By any measure, a vote for @Tammy4Congress is a vote for the pro-union Chicago machine owning the 6th District with Nancy Pelosi controlling Ms. Duckworths vote.
