Rodney Farthing – for Missouri State Auditor

Rodney-FarthingSince there is no Democrat challenger contesting the race against incumbent Tom Schweich for MO State Auditor, now is the time for Democrats to hold Republicans accountable by voting for Constitution Party candidate, Rod Farthing.

Rod’s allegiance is to uphold the Constitution and to protect the hardworking, taxpaying citizens and families of Missouri.

If faith and family is important to you, vote for Rod.

If you want someone who you can trust to watch over MO tax dollars, then vote for Rod.

Although Rod is running on a political party ballot, as required by MO election law, he is not beholden to any political party or to any special interest groups.

A little bit about Rodney Farthing:  He is in his 13th year as the Development Director for ARM Prison Outreach and is a 1971 graduate and Distinguished Alumnus of St. Louis Christian College in Florissant, MO.  Rod was in pulpit ministry for 33 years — including a nine-year ministry in Salem, MO, where he still resides.  He ran for State Treasurer in 2008 on the Constitution Party ballot.  Rod has been married to his college sweetheart, Jan, since 1970 and they have six children — ranging from 18 to 40 years old — and four granddaughters.

Missouri bill would gut Obamacare

Missouri bill would gut Obamacare

 

missour-state-capital

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., December 27, 2013 – Next month, the Missouri Senate will consider a bill which would effectively cripple the implementation of the Affordable Care Act within the state.

Following the lead of South Carolina, where lawmakers are fast-tracking House Bill 3101 in 2014, and Georgia, where HB707 was recently introduced by Rep. Jason Spencer, Missouri State Senator John T. Lamping (R-24) pre-filed Senate Bill 546 (SB546) to update the Health Care Freedom Act passed by Missouri voters in 2010. It passed that year with more than 70% support.

SB546 would ban Missouri from taking any action that would “compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any health care system.” That means the state would be banned by law from operating a health care exchange for the federal government.

The bill also proposes suspending the licenses of insurers who accept federal subsidies which result in the “imposition of penalties contrary to the public policy” set forth in the legislation. Since it is unlikely that any insurer would then accept a subsidy, not a single employer in the state could be hit with the employer-mandate penalties those subsidies trigger.

In a press release, Lamping said his goal was make health care better for the people of his state. “These ideas are aimed at improving … health care decisions for Missourians.” <snip>

Congressman Jason Smith Capitol Report: Goals for 2014

As 2013 comes to a close, now is the time to look toward 2014 and the challenges ahead. Some people make resolutions at the start of the New Year, some set goals. For my part, I see five key goals for the upcoming year:

 While Mr. Smiths’ goals are reasonable, we believe that there is a lot more to be addressed.

 

 

She’s ‘Armed & Fabulous’: Meet Thirteen Year Old Shooting Star Katelyn Francis.

This story comes via Wall Builders Live and The Blaze. Like most 13-yr-old girls, Katelyn (Katie) Francis has a Facebook page. However, unlike most 13-yr old girls, the young Miss Francis describes herself like this: “Katelyn is a 13 year old who enjoys competing in Multi Gun matches around the country.”

It was on Facebook that we first spotted Katelyn in this video titled, “Fight Like A Girl. Watch This Little Girl Shoot Like A BOSS.”

 

That short video showed Katie competing in a three-gun event. The first weapon used, also known as a “stage gun,” is provided by the match and used by all of the competitors, was an Adaptive Combat Rifle or ACR. Katelyn then continues through the course using her Benelli 12 gauge shotgun and her Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol.

Shooting is in the young lady’s DNA. Her father, Sgt. First Class Chad Francis, happens to be the state marksmanship coordinator for the Missouri Army National Guard. Dad Chad has been teaching his daughter about guns and gun safety since she was five years old. Katie told the NRA, “Dad taught there’s 10 gun safety rules. He made me say them over and over again. My dad’s a real stickler about making me always be safe.”

When she was 9-yrs-old, Katie started pestering her dad to take her hunting and shooting. Her mom was not exactly supportive of this request, but eventually relented and dad gave the young girl a .22. The next year, when she turned 10, Katie graduated to a 9mm pistol.

Father and daughter have both been shooting competitively since 2010.

Congratulations on a job well done, young lady!

‘Religion, Morality and Knowledge’: Michelle Malkin and David Barton Reveal the Darker Side of Education Reform.

This story comes Via The Blaze and Wall Builder’s Live…  Michelle Malkin tackled education reform and the ever-contentious Common Core standards during Glenn Beck’s Man in the Moon event. Covering a different side of the coin, historian David Barton later delved into the historical roots of religion in education and how the system has profoundly changed over the past few decades.

Both made their remarks during the Independence Through Education conference — an education panel covering a plethora of associated education issues.

Common Core Standards.
Common Core Standards.

In order to understand education in America and the government’s Common Core initiative, Malkin said that the first step is to be informed. The second objective, she said, is to be engaged, telling the crowd that they should use social media to ensure that their voices are heard.

“We need a critical mass and what Twitter and Facebook allow you to do is have a diffusion of knowledge and a knowledge base,” she said, calling for people to insert themselves in the discussion in an effort to save the nation’s schools.

As for Common Core and the current reforms, Malkin noted that the federal government used stimulus money to force states into compliance. To drive home the dangers of education reform proposals, she compared the initiatives to Obamacare.

“If you think Obamacare is bad, wait until you get a load of Obamacore. … it may as well be Bushcore — Jeb Bush, George W. Bush, George Walker Bush and the entire wing of the Republican party that has forsaken the [small government] role that the federal government is supposed to play,” Malkin said.

Teachers, rather than bureaucrats, she argued, are supposed to discern how to “deliver and impart” lessons.

“The collectivist mission of these educators is completely explicit and we cannot collaborate with people who are trying to bring this country down,” she added.

Malkin said that the battle never ends. While the key players change, the “unholy alliance” unfolds again and again. Conservatives, she argued, must get involved in the battle to stop Common Core.

 

More and More Americans Are Becoming CCW Permit Holders. And Then There Was Illinois.

And this via Hot Air… Firearms sales have been on the up and up since President Obama was elected in 2008, and the federal government’s attempt to pass more national gun-control measures did nothing to quell the firearms industry’s personal economic boom. It isn’t merely gun sales, however, that have lately been experiencing a major surge; the WSJ has the numbers indicating an encouraging trend of more and more Americans taking the responsibility of carrying a concealed weapon upon their person. We’re only halfway through 2013, and it already looks like plenty of states are on track for their biggest permitting years on record.

Gun Control and Illinois.
Gun Control and Illinois.

The tragic murders in Newton, Connecticut and Aurora, Colorado spurred a gun debate at not only the national but the state level, and much of the media focus was on states that undertook efforts to tighten their gun laws (Connecticut, New York, Maryland, California, and Colorado figuring prominently).

Plenty of states, however, actually went about easing up on gun laws; the WSJ mentions that at least 20 states have loosened laws on concealed-carry, according to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. Individual states’ measures have included making permits cheaper and easier to gets, doing away with permits altogether, allowing concealed carry in more places, and/or generally streamlining the process through which their law-abiding residents can exercise their Second-Amendment freedoms and protect themselves and their families, neighbors, and communities.
