Reader Letter: Gosar has big shoes to fill

Here in Kingman, we have a strong veteran presence that I believe has influence on the rest of the state. With that in mind, I hope that our new Congressman Paul Gosar will take note of what Sen. John McCain has done to support Arizona's military, whether it is his continued support for the F-35 program and the jobs it provides or the senator's unwavering strength in helping our local soldiers with their educational needs.

We had a strong veteran supporter in Congressman Trent Franks, and I sincerely hope that Congressman Gosar can do the same.

Article comment by: How Low - Quoting A Criminal

Yep, Issa is truly an expert on criminals that's because he is one - convicted in the 70's.

@Linda

I read your long post. And I have to say, it is an impressive copy and paste. None of it is true, but it is impressive nonetheless.

“But feel free to post what you have from real sources.”

Here is just one quick one from an interview with David Shuster:
“ISSA: When we see $8 billion into a train to Sin City as part of a stimulus, we reject it.

“SHUSTER: But Congressman, there's no project for a train from California to Las Vegas. You Republicans know better. It's $8 billion that's going to the Department of Transportation, and a Republican, Ray LaHood -- he was a Republican in your Congress -- he's the Transportation Secretary who gets to decide where the money is spent! It is wrong to say there is a project from L.A. to Las Vegas. It's not in the bill, Congressman.”

A simple Google for David Issa Lies turns up many, many sources of lies put out by this clown.

"Issa is a joke who has been exposed as many times as David Barton for lying."

Issa is still around, a govt funded ACORN is not. But it is important to crush former ACORN leaders when they try to pop up using a new name.

I googled "Issa exposed for lying" and found nothing credible. Sure, the leftist website, "Issawatch" screeches he should be censured, but they have no credibility at all and is not a unbiased source. I also googled "Issa censured" again, nothing, once you discount leftist websites like HuffPo and Daily Kos screeching that he sdoiuld be. But feel free to post what you have from real sources.

Bernadine Dohrn just happened to be married to William Ayers, with whom she just happened to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco marina, along with Donald Warden, who just happened to change his name to Khalid al-Mansour, and Warden/al-Mansour just happened to be a mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and al-Mansour just happened to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince, who just happened to donate cash to Harvard, for which Obama just happened to get a critical letter of recommendation from Percy Sutton, who just happened to have been the attorney for Malcolm X, who just happened to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, who just happened to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who just happened to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya.

Obama, Sr. just happened to have his education at the U of Hawaii paid for by Laubach Literacy Institute, which just happened to have been supported by Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who just happened to be a friend of Malcolm X, who just happened to have been associated with the Nation of Islam, which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan, who just happens to live very close to Obama’s Chicago mansion, which also just happens to be located very close to the residence of William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who just happened to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and Natasha Obama, whose parents didn't mind exposing them to bomb making commies,

After Occidental and Columbia where obama just happened to have foreign muslim roommates, Obama moved to Chicago to work for Industiral Areas Foundation, an organization founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul the Red Alinsky..on and on. .

Hey BM: How about these connected dots. From an enterprising researcher.

In the four years I have been gathering information about—and evidence against—Barack Hussein Obama, I have encountered hundreds of coincidences that strike me as amazing. None of those coincidences, by themselves, may mean much. But taken as a whole it is almost impossible to believe they were all the result of chance.

Consider the Obama-related coincidences: Obama just happened to know 60s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father just happened to be Thomas Ayers, who just happened to be a close friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama just happened to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which just happened to manage public housing in Chicago, which just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which just happened not to properly maintain the housing—which eventually just happened to require demolition. Valerie Jarrett also just happened to work for the city of Chicago, and just happened to hire Michelle LaVaughan Robinson (later Obama), who just happened to have worked at the Sidley Austin law firm, where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also just happened to work, and where Barack Obama just happened to get a summer job. And more to come.

Ms Athens

“Sure BM - That's because I DON'T LIE WHEN I POST THINGS.”

Obama is a homosexual. Obama’s birth certificate is a fake. Obama uses the Social Security number of a dead man. Frank Marshall is Obama’s father. Obama’s mother gave birth to him in Kenya. INS employees helped Obama’s mother sneak back into Hawaii. Obama is a Muslim, communist, fascist, Maoist, Kenyan, socialist, Indonesian. I am an atheist. “Don''t bother addressing anything to me. I won't be reading your drivil as I actually like factual information,” (20 July 2012). Want more just ask?

“Issa investigated ACORN. He knows.”

Issa is a joke who has been exposed as many times as David Barton for lying.

“A source within ACORN revealed to Reuters their 20 chapters are organizing under new names.”

Please direct us to that story because I cannot find it, thank you.

Sure BM:

I can supply you with all kinds of information on ACORN. That's because I DON'T LIE WHEN I POST THINGS.

Just because ACORN said it was disbanding, didn't really mean it was gone. Or as Rep Darrell Issa, top dog on the House Committee on Oversight and Govt Reform said, "just as criminals change their aliases, ACORN is changing it's name".

Issa investigated ACORN. He knows. The videos exposed what they really are - ruined their chances of grabbing govt money so they had to get new names.

ACORN's board said they would close state affiliates and field offices but continued to operate their housing unit.

A source within ACORN revealed to Reuters their 20 chapters are organizing under new names.

ACORN New York and ACORN California had already broken away and changed their names in a bid to shed the parent organizations tarnished image so they are still going.

The only diff between the new groups and ACORN is the name Issa said. The groups are keeping their same employees, same tax ID numbers.

For example, Issa said, Affordable Housing Centers of America was formerly ACORN Housing. - same tax ID, same employees and they have received millions of dollars in funding from HUD.

“He's not a left wing lunatic, so no favorite of yours. Isn't that about the long and short of your assessment?”

I don’t understand you’re question. My assessment of Gosar is based on his record of not caring for the American people by supporting his corporate masters.

Ms Athens

“BM: In spite of ACORN closing down (they really didn't - came out under many different names after that!),”

Of course you are unable to provide any of those names – right?

“…there still were bills passed to keep any funding from ever going to them. Gosar voted for them never getting any funding.

Them who? ACORN went out of business in April of 2010. And any bills , as I pointed out, was nothing more than grandstanding and nonsense. Like the 37 votes the House voted on to do with the ACA.

No big surprise that this is your take on Gosar. He's not a left wing lunatic, so no favorite of yours. Isn't that about the long and short of your assessment?

Well that's a great way of telling Gosar you expect him to do everything the vets want. Surely he already knows the old people and vets own him - their the ones who vote.

“Gosar will do just fine. He voted three time against any funding for ACORN ever and that is good enough for me.”

ACORN closed its door on 1 April 2010 and Gosar was not elected until 2010, taking office in 2011, so any votes regarding ACORN (which cannot be verified by looking at his voting record) were strictly dog and pony show grandstanding.

What is evident from his voting record is that Gosar wants the government involved in women’s health care decisions, does not like veterans being paid or receiving benefits once they are discharged, favors a free trade status with Korea, voted against restricting golden parachutes and excessive bonuses for executives involved in the economic mess, supports rules that negatively impact American labor, voted against the Job Protection and Recession Prevention Act, and voted against the National Defense Authorization Act – among many other things. Proving that Gosar is indeed, worthless when it comes to serving the needs of the American people.

Ms. Watts,

Unlike you I'm glad to see that Franks is gone. I've followed his appropriation requests for the last few years, and I never saw an instance where he "brought home the bacon" to Kingman. He seemed far more interested in the national stage via manufactured abstracts like electro-magnetic pulse weaponry.

I too believe in a strong military, but I would hope that Mr. Gosar would question, as I do, how a single F-35 can include 130-140 million dollars of technology. Some accounting questions and pushback to the defense industry seems necessary and long overdue.

Gosar proved his worthlessness before he changed Legislative Districts. And nothing will change, he will continue to be worthless.
