Close the One-Way Trade Street…Write Your Congressman NOW

Posted by sierrascrapper on January 30, 2008

 

Trade Demands A Level Playing Field

The Goal:
1. Get this bill out of “committee”, on the floor and get it debated.

2. Get our elected representatives to pass H. R. 2600.

The bipartisan Border Tax Equity Act (H.R. 2600) has been introduced by Congresman Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Mike Michaud (D-ME), and Walter Jones (R-NC). The purpose is to correct border-tax inequities that currently disadvantage U.S. producers and service providers to the tune of $379 billion a year.

H.R. 2600:  Border Tax Equity Act of 2007

“H.R. 2600 needs our help!
Our elected representatives need us to give them a little push!”

A summary of H.R. 2600:

To authorize the imposition of a tax on imports from any country that employs indirect taxes and grants rebates of the same upon export and to authorize compensatory payments to eligible United States exporters to neutralize the discriminatory effect of such taxes paid by such exporters if United States trade negotiating objectives regarding border tax treatment in World Trade Organization negotiations are not met.

Introduced: 6/6/2007 — 10 Cosponsors

Latest Major Action: 6/18/2007 Referred to House subcommittee.

Status: Referred to the Subcommittee on Trade.

Folks, let’s not let this bill “die” in committee. You and I need this bill! American business needs this bill! The United States of America needs this bill!

Please take the time to learn more about H.R. 2600:
H.R. 2600: Border Tax Equity Act of 2007
The goal of our “free trade” agreements, such as the GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade) and the World Trade Organization (WTO), was to lower tariffs mutually in pursuit of worldwide free trade. The trouble is that it takes two to tango and we trade with at least 137 other countries that dance to a different tune.  So far, free trade has been a one way street.  We “freely” opened our markets to any junk any country wanted to sell here, while foreign markets remain closed to US industry.

When other countries reduced their tariffs, they simultaneously imposed border tax schemes, particularly Value Added Taxes (VAT), which add up to almost exactly the same amount as the tariffs that were supposedly reduced or eliminated. This sleight-of-hand trick is achieved by imposing VAT taxes on imports (a de facto tariff) and rebating VAT taxes on exports.
Look folks, think “globally” for a moment.  Everybody else in the world can’t all be wrong!  Perhaps, the US in this case, has made a mistake.  H.R. 2600 will help rectify this just a little bit!
Why do we need H.R. 2600?  Learn more about “why” here:
Trade Demands A Level Playing Field
Congress has repeatedly tried to resolve this border-tax discrimination by good-faith negotiations with VAT countries. But other countries continue to say “no dice,” and the WTO turns a deaf ear.  And, don’t get me wrong here.  As sovereign nations – they have a right, they have the freedom of choice to say “no”.
This fuels the trade deficit, cripples U.S. competitiveness, and provides a powerful incentive for U.S. companies to shift production and jobs overseas. Thousands of U.S. companies have shifted production to nations that use a VAT where they avoid taxation.  You can’t “blame” business.  Their goal is to make profits!  Less tax = More profit!  So, who do you “blame”?  It is the U. S. Trade Policy that is at fault!
Again – It is the U. S. Trade Policy that is at fault.  The problem is not, nor has it ever been “lazy” Americans.  Americans are the world’s most productive workers.  Read this:
Many, many, times US trade representatives have complained to the WTO.  The WTO’s refusal to address this discrimination proves its anti-American bias.
It’s time to speak up for American industry, American jobs, and you and I the American people!
And that is exactly what H.R. 2600:  Border Tax Equity Act of 2007 does!
Let’s all help spread the word!
TOGETHER: We will make a difference!!

Those who do nothing soon find that they can do nothing.
Why don’t  “we”  take this on?  Let’s as a “group” of people who care about the future of this nation make a goal of:

1. Get this bill out of “committee”, on the floor and get it debated.

2. Get our elected representatives to pass H. R. 2600.
Are you with us?
“Yes!”
Great!  The time for action is upon us!

Hunter Endorses Huckabee

Posted by sierrascrapper on January 24, 2008

HUNTER ENDORSES HUCKABEE FOR PRESIDENT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  January 23, 2008
CONTACT:  Gary Becks  (619)334-1655
Washington D.C.- – – Congressman Duncan Hunter, who withdrew his candidacy for the Republican Presidential nomination on January 19, 2007 , today endorsed Mike Huckabee.
“I got to know Governor Huckabee well on the campaign trail,” said Hunter. “Of the remaining candidates I feel that he is strongly committed to strengthening national defense, constructing the border fence and meeting the challenge of China’s emergence as a military superpower that is taking large portions of America ’s industrial base. 
Along with these issues of national security, border enforcement and protecting the U.S. industrial base, I see another quality of Mike Huckabee’s candidacy that compels my endorsement.  Mike Huckabee is a man of outstanding character and integrity.  I saw that character over the last year of campaigning and was greatly impressed.  The other Republican candidates have many strengths and I wish them all well.  My personal choice is Mike Huckabee,” Hunter concluded.

This announcement is difficult to swallow, but I really see this as the right move for Duncan Hunter.  If he had chosen to endorse McCain, we would all be sickened due to McCain’s hand in McCain/Kennedy and McCain/Feingold.  If Hunter had chosen Romney, we would all be disgusted due to Romney’s uninterest in the problems facing our nation with China.  Giuliani would NEVER cross Hunter’s mind so that leaves only one other choice and that is Huckabee.

 Yes I think Huckabee isn’t the TRUE CONSERVATIVE that we had in Hunter, but I also see the ability of Hunter being able to influence Huckabee.  Hunter would be the most excellent choice to balance out a Huckabee ticket in the General Election.  Huckabee needs someone strong like Hunter to appeal to conservatives.  The thought of supporting Huckabee at this point is still a difficult pill to swallow, but I do trust Hunter’s decision.  And… I do see potential for Hunter to help Huckabee make some wise choices so that he can garner more support and possibly win the nomination.

 All I can say is that this election cycle is getting more interesting by the day!  I am still not going to sit back and let someone dictate to me who I should vote for, so at this point, I am still doing my homework and trying to sort everything out.  Remember, if we don’t speak up, our votes don’t really matter.

What’s a Conservative to Do?

Posted by sierrascrapper on January 22, 2008

Op/Ed Piece written by Dennis McCarthy

I’m in a political state of mourning this week. I’m a conservative, and my presidential candidate of choice recently dropped out of the race. Now, with the options left, I may be forced to sit out the general election this November. There are no conservatives left in this presidential race.

Congressman Duncan Hunter (R – CA) never got any traction with the voters. He was unable to amass the war chest necessary for such a huge undertaking. He was, at first, stuck in the corner podium for debates; in fact, he and Tom ancredo called each other “the bookends”. Later on, he was shut out of the debates entirely. This made it impossible to continue his campaign, since his biggest obstacle was convincing folks he was still in the race.

Duncan Hunter was outmanned by other candidates who had paid political operatives and consultants. Here in Florida, his grassroots volunteer force was fewer than a thousand people, and most of those only came on board in the last few weeks, not enough time to make a significant impact.

I’m not a political animal, but after seeing him on a cable news talk show about this time last year talking about the success of his border fence, I got involved with the Hunter campaign. The time I spent was well worth it, though, because the man I spent that time on was worth it.

Duncan Hunter is a complete conservative. He’s strong on the border, of course, but he’s also been consistently strong on military defense. He’s been consistently pro-life, pro-faith and pro-family, and is a strong supporter of every American’s right to bear arms.  Other candidates’ resumes have some of these qualities; none of them have all.

Most crucial, and timely to this week’s world economic crisis, Duncan Hunter knows the importance of a solid manufacturing base to America’s economy. That’s why he planned on canceling our unfair trade deals with Communist China, who’s been cheating on trade, devaluing their own currency in order to weaken the US dollar, and sending America childrens’ toys dipped in lead paint. Duncan Hunter’s “mirror trade” policy – that is, subjecting America’s trade partners to the same taxes and tariffs they impose on us – was a plan for which no other candidate had a response.

As I pounded the streets for Duncan Hunter, people everywhere told me “Duncan’s a good man, and a great conservative. It’s a shame he doesn’t have a chance hell of winning”. And if he had a dollar for every time someone said that, the Hunter campaign would have had enough money to buy him a blimp.

In a conference call with volunteer leaders last Saturday night, Hunter stopped short of endorsing any other candidate, though he had some kind words for one, and some unkind words for a few others. Fred Thompson is the most conservative of the remaining candidates (if he’s still in the race at press time, that is), but his wife seems to want to be First Lady far more fervently than he wants to be President. Mike Huckabee shares Hunter’s conservative values.  However, Huck’s soft stance on illegal immigration and lack of any experience with military issues are two big reasons I may not be able to pull the level for him in November. Rudy? Mitt? McCain? No way.  Ron Paul? No, thanks.

I’m reminded of a scene from the movie “Nuts”, in which an accused murderer (Barbra Streisand) fires her high-priced lawyer and ends up with a pro bono legal aid attorney (Richard Dreyfuss). She asks him, “So, are you any good?” Dreyfus gives her a scathing look and sneers, “You HAD good. Now you’ve got me.”

That’s how I’m feeling right now. We had good. Now that the only complete conservative in the race is out of the race, we have far less of a choice.

We Fought the Good Fight

Posted by sierrascrapper on January 19, 2008


MEDIA ALERT

 Congressman Duncan Hunter returns to San Diego tonight,

Saturday January 19, 2008
Media Opportunity at 8:00 PM (PST)
Broadway Pier at the end of Broadway St, San Diego
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  January 19, 2008
CONTACT:  Gary Becks  (619) 334-1655, garybecks@yahoo.com
San Diego, Calif. 
We started this campaign a year ago right here, in San Diego Harbor, against the backdrop of American Naval power.   We launched a campaign emphasizing a strong national defense, enforceable borders and restoring  the industrial base of America. 
Today we end this campaign.  The Nevada caucuses reflecting only 2% of the vote for me.   I ran the campaign exactly the way I wanted to, and at this point not being able to gain traction in conservative states of Nevada and South Carolina, it’s time to allow our volunteers and supporters to focus on the campaigns that remain viable.
It’s time for me to gear up for 2008’s defense bill that will be put together over the coming weeks.  There is work to be done in the areas of troop protection and new capabilities to be deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. And over the horizon, the emergence of Communist China as a military super power will require a new emphasis on U.S. capabilities in undersea warfare, space, and long range air-power. 
The best way to maintain a new era of peace is for the U.S. to remain strong.  Over the coming year I will endeavor to help craft a defense bill that meets the new security challenges.
Since our campaign began over 200,000 additional manufacturing jobs have been lost.  1.8 million jobs have left the U.S. for China.  This fracturing of the U.S. industrial base is a long term threat to America.  I hope that the remaining candidates will recognize it and address it.   As the senior Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, I will seek to address it.
Only hours ago a border patrolman was killed in the California Desert.  This tragedy emphasizes more than ever the compelling case for the completion of the border fence.   Since I wrote the bill that mandates 854 miles of double border fence only a few miles have been constructed.  Over the next year in Congress I will do everything in my power to get that fence built.  
Finally, for Lynn and me, the campaign over the last year has shown us this: America is a wonderful country.   Our people have great character and goodness, and the meeting of new friends has enriched our lives. 
The failure of our campaign to gain traction is mine and mine alone.  But we have driven the issues of national security, the border fence, the emergence of China and the need to reverse bad trade policy.   Because of that, this campaign has been very worthwhile, and for the Hunter family, a lot of fun. 
To our friends and supporters and volunteers: many thanks.  And now it’s time for me to focus on developing a 2008 defense bill that serves our troops and our nation.  
Thanks, and God Bless America.

GodVoter.org Stands Up for Ousted Candidates in the Debates

Posted by sierrascrapper on January 10, 2008

NewsJanuary 8, 2008 – GodVoter.org Calls For ABC, Fox News Presidents Ouster

GodVoter.org calls on David Westin, President of ABC News and Roger Ailes, Chairman of Fox News to apologize to the nation’s voters for their networks’ attempts to influence the 2008 presidential race.

To justify its decision to exclude certain candidates from this weekend’s debate, ABC News stated that candidates like Ron Paul, Duncan Hunter and Dennis Kucinich failed to meet its criteria for participation, while Fox News cited the lack of room in its cramped debate venue.

Are we to believe that ABC News didn’t know exactly which candidates would be affected while crafting its criteria just days earlier? And how much more space would another candidate or two have cost Fox News, owned by billionaire Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp?

Limiting participation in presidential debates is warranted late in the race when voters are well acquainted with the candidates. This weekend’s debates took place on only the 5th and the 6th day of the election year. Many voters around the country still don’t even know some of the candidates’ names, let alone their records and platforms.

And the error of the exclusions was evident. For example, foreign policy neophytes like Obama and Romney, neither of whom have military experience, expounding on the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and the nuclear threat without Duncan Hunter, the former army ranger who is serving his 26th year on the House Armed Services Committee, was akin to college freshmen trying to impress during an oral exam without the professor.

Ever since Kennedy debated Nixon in black and white in 1960, television stations have been gaining and wielding influence over presidential races. But now, it has gone too far.

If Westin and Ailes, the former media consultant for Rudy Giuliani, refuse to apologize to the voters, as well as to the affected candidates, including Congressmen Ron Paul, Duncan Hunter and Dennis Kucinich, GodVoter.org calls on Disney and News Corp to replace them.

FAUX News and SC GOP freeze Hunter out of Debate

Posted by sierrascrapper on January 10, 2008

From: Mike Dixon
Subject: SC Debate

I feel obligated to let you know that the SC Republican Party in conjunction with Fox News is not allowing Presidential candidate Duncan Hunter into the the South Carolina debate tomorrow night.

Bill O’Reilly said last week on his show that Duncan Hunter would be in the debate. The state party informed us today that he would not be allowed into the debate. The SC GOP blames Fox News. I personally believe that the state party could make it happen if they would.
Duncan Hunter is a qualified candidate who has shaped the debate in this presidential race for the Republican Nomination. Consider the facts:
  • from day one Hunter has campaigned to secure the border and fight illegal immigration. He wrote the Border Fence legistation that was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President. With the exception of Tancredo none of the other candidates started talking about this issue until the end of March 2007. Hunter was running television ads about this in December 2006.
  • from day one Hunter has campaigned against the unfair trade practices of China and pledged to negotiate fair trade deals. Only with in the past couple of weeks have any of the other candidates mentioned this. CONSIDER THE MANUFACTURING JOBS SOUTH CAROLINIANS HAVE LOST!
  • from day one Hunter has campaigned for a fair tax. He co-sponsored the fair tax legislation
  • from day one Hunter has campigned for a strong national defense, peace through strength. No one knows defense better than Duncan Hunter, the ranking member of the Armed Services Committee.
I do not know of anything we can do to get Congressman Hunter into the SC Debate short of a lawsuit to stop the debate until Hunter is allowed into the debate. I suggest phone calls and e-mails to the state party and Fox News. Also, you can refuse to buy tickets to the debate and or debate events.
DUNCAN HUNTER’S CAMPAIGN PAID $25,000.00 AS A FILING FEE TO BE ON THE SOUTH CAROLINA REPUBLICAN PRIMARY BALLOT. NOW THEY WILL NOT GIVE HIM THE TIME OF DAY!
Call the South Carolina Republican Party at 1-800-215-2344 or go to SCgop.com for contact information. Also, go to FoxNews.com to contact Fox News. I have sent an e-mail to Bill O’Reilly.
I ask that you stand with us as we continue to fight for what is right.
MIKE DIXON

SOUTH CAROLINA CO-CHAIRMAN

Realize this America, FOX News and the other mainstream media outlets are forcing you to be like SHEEP.  Don’t be blinded by what is happening here.  The MSM wants you to pick a liberal Republican.  They want a President who is a push-over who will lead our country close to how the Dems would do it.  Think about this, at each debate, Hunter has not been given his fair share of time.  The media has only focused on the LIBERAL candidates.  That is because they are afraid of Hunter and how he would turn our nation back in the right direction.  Hunter stands for all the conservative values that we uphold.  The media doesn’t want to accept the fact that Hunter is not a QUITTER and that he will fight to the very end.

I always hear complaints about the fact that Hunter doesn’t have name recognition.  Who do you think is responsible for that???  You can be sure that the MSM and the LIBERAL candidates are the ones banding together to keep out the MOST CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE running for President.  Republican voters are longing for another President like Reagan.   That candidate is DUNCAN HUNTER.  He became a Congressman as Reagan became President.   Hunter learned how to represent our nation from one of our most treasured leaders.

The Race for the White House is WIDE OPEN

Posted by sierrascrapper on January 9, 2008

Duncan Hunter has not been expending heavy resources on targets of marginal value like IA and NH.  He’s only gone through the motions to take advantage of free media opportunities.  His priority has been defining the critical substantive issues that will shape the future of our Nation and very likely, western civilization.  At the same time he has been building his campaign organization for the critical Florida primary on 29 Jan and the Super Tuesday primaries which follow on 5 Feb. 
Get ready to welcome defectors from the fallen media-fabricated titans.  Beneath the surface of tonight’s media hype, the NH primary results provide more good news for Congressman Hunter, the true Reagan conservative in the Presidential race.  Since 1978, southern NH has undergone exponential development becoming a virtual suburb of Boston. Therefore, the NH results have shattered the media-fabricated conservative candidacy of the former Mass Governor who spent millions in IA and NH. Another big spender mortally wounded in NH is former Senator Fred Thompson. Those who were succumbing to the constant bombardment by media elites, especially by Fox, marketing the pseudo conservative candidates, now have grave doubts about their electability.  They will not realize that both candidates had very modest records of achievement in their limited time in public office. Well, watch them now take a second look at Duncan. 
Although Senator McCain is a great warrior and patriot with a good Defense record, he has totally failed to recognize that a strong economy is the critical foundation of a sound national security strategy. His past support of such schemes like NAFTA and horrendous attempts to grant amnesty to illegals was tantamount to an assault on America’s well paid middle class workers.  His support of so called “campaign finance reform” resulted in a defacto incumbents protection act at the expense of muzzling free expression.
Duncan Hunter has championed a strong military, border security, and protecting America’s workers and small businesses against unfair trade competition by opposing schemes like NAFTA, the North American Union and outsourcing to China.  He wisely recognizes that protecting jobs in U.S. defense, aircraft, ship repair, machine tools, textile, steel and titanium industries are essential for maintaining the wartime surge capacity of the U.S. industrial base.  Since 9-11-01, he has led the fight to secure our borders against terrorists and lawless elements.
For 15 years, major strategic mistakes have been made by Administrations of both political parties because they lacked substantial military and foreign policy experience.  This is not gained by a governor calling out the National Guard for state duty, or by a mayor responding to a highly localized terrorist attack, no matter how admirably.  Rather, it comes form mastering the economic, diplomatic, military and intergovernmental elements of our national power to shape sound security strategy and policy.  Congressman Hunter cannot only tactically, operationally and strategically employ our forces, but also balance those other elements of power with equally superior competency to restore America’s greatness.  Now Americans will wake up and realize that they don’t have to “settle.”

Since 1981, Congressman Duncan Hunter has served on the House Armed Services Committee, as Chairman from 2002-06, and currently as the Ranking Minority Member.  Hunter has championed a strong military, border security, and protecting America’s workers and small businesses against unfair trade competition by opposing schemes like NAFTA and the North American Union.  He understands that protecting jobs in U.S. defense, aircraft, ship repair, machine tools, textile, steel and titanium industries are essential for maintaining the surge capacity of the U.S. industrial base.  Since 9-11-01, Hunter has led the fight to secure our borders against transnational terrorists and lawless elements; and to release two unjustly convicted border guards, Ramos and Campion.
Hunter earned the Combat Infantryman’s Badge and Bronze Star in Vietnam and demands that the U.S. Government keep its promises to Veterans.  His efforts to provide tax relief for working families, protect Social Security, and promote strong family values earned him 100% ratings from Eagle Forum, the American Conservative Union, the Concerned Women of America, the Christian Coalition, and the Campaign for Working Families; a 92% from the American Conservative Union; and an A+ from the NRA.
Vote for Duncan Hunter, a true Reagan Republican in the Presidential primary on January 29th.  We don’t have to settle for a self-reinvented or media-fabricated one.

Watch Out MSM, Duncan Hunter is a FIGHTER

Posted by sierrascrapper on January 7, 2008

The mainstream media better think twice about leaving Duncan Hunter out of future Presidential debates.  Duncan Hunter is a fighter and he will NEVER QUIT!

 Duncan Hunter is in this race to win and America needs to wake and realize that Hunter is the ONLY TRUE CONSERVATIVE running for President. 

 Watch this video to see Duncan Hunter’s response to his being blocked out of the Presidential debates this weekend:

Do these “top tier” candidates have delegates for the upcoming Republican National Convention?

Giuliani? NO
McCain? NO
Paul? NO

It’s time to listen to the message that Duncan Hunter has to say.  There is a reason that the mainstream media is afraid of Duncan Hunter.  They know that he is the candidate that could slaughter the competition from the Democrats and finally turn our nation back in the right direction.  Duncan Hunter has a proven record on the issues he stands for like border control, 2nd amendment rights, pro-life and family values, unfair trade deals with China, strong military, lower taxes.

When you go to vote in the primaries, don’t let the media tell you who to vote for.  Make your own decision.  Do the research.  Take a Presidential candidate quiz and find out which one you are most closely aligned with.  Read this former blog entry for a link to one of these quizzes. Select a Candidate

DUNCAN HUNTER EARNS ENDORSEMENT FROM NEVADA REPUBLICAN ASSEMBLY

Posted by sierrascrapper on January 7, 2008

On January 4, 5 and 6, 2008 the Nevada Republican Assembly held a Presidential Endorsing Convention in Reno, Nevada.  On Saturday they held a Presidential rally where each of the campaigns presented their candidate and the issues they stand for.  The organization also held a Straw Poll for those who attended the rally.  Congressman Hunter came in 3rd place in the straw poll behind Ron Paul and John McCain. 

 On Sunday, the NVRA met to vote on the candidate that their organization would endorse for President in 2008.  This organization has one of the largest concentrations of conservative Republicans in it’s membership.  They uphold the principles of supporting our constitution, limited government, love of God, state sovereignty, controlled spending, sanctity of life, parental rights, protection of private property, 2nd amendment rights, security of our borders, fair trade, educational excellence, and fair and equal taxation rights.

The NVRA held a series of votes to reach their choice for endorsement of Congressman Duncan Hunter for President in 2008.  Duncan Hunter had a clear lead throughout all 5 rounds of voting.  In order for the assembly to reach a final decision for the endorsement, the candidate had to have a 2/3 majority vote.  Duncan Hunter won that endorsement over Fred Thompson with more than the 2/3 required.  Hunter’s clear, consistent conservative message has resonated with residents in Nevada.

Michael Kressler, President of the NVRA along with members of the organization are proud to endorse Duncan Hunter for President in 2008.  Duncan Hunter has proven that he is a viable candidate and will represent the people who need a President that is honest and true and will facilitate change in the right direction for our nation.
