Update: No go for Sheriff Joe..

Update: Sheriff Joe will not run for Governor, he is keeping his Sheriff badge and enforcing our new law..maybe the 5th time will be the charm…

AZCapitolTimes:

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced that he will not run for governor, once again ending Arizona’s election-year tradition of the sheriff flirting with the state’s highest office….

…“I am humbled by the encouragement and outpouring of support for me to run for governor. However, at the same time, so many people have supported my campaign for reelection that I do not want to betray them by running for another office,” Arpaio said in a press statement. “I have come so far and accomplished so much in the past 18 years as sheriff that to leave now just doesn’t make sense.”…

Update: $860,000! FL Senate: Moneybomb for Marco!

Update 4: we did it! with DeMint’s moneybomb and the stimulus moneybomb we passed the target! From the Rubio Campaign:

This week, we marked the first anniversary of the Crist-Obama stimulus rally by achieving our goal of raising $1,000 for every $1 billion wasted by the stimulus plan.  With your help and the support of Sen. Jim DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund, we raised more than $860,000 in just 10 days from 11,000 donors through the Stimulus Bomb. Together, we sent big government proponents like President Obama and Governor Crist a message that we cannot continue spending money we don’t have and that a return to limited government principles is what will make America strong and prosperous.  With the primary still 6 months away, now more than ever we must promote conservative values and endure in our efforts.

In Case You Missed It:

  • Charlie Crist has repeatedly declined requests from Marco for a debate of the issues and ideas most important to Floridians.  This week, FOX News tried their luck by inviting both Marco and Crist to participate in a nationally televised debate on March 28th.  Marco immediately accepted, while Crist remains undecided.
  • On Wednesday, FreedomWorks PAC marked the one year anniversary of the Crist-Obama rally with their own rally, which featured Marco. You can watch a short excerpt of his speech here.
  • This week, we also launched a new text messaging campaign.  Don’t forget to sign up for updates on your mobile phone by texting MARCO to 69467.

Update 3: 2/11- Results of the moneybomb to be released at noon EST today!

Update: 9:21pm EST: WooHoo, we are almost there! $708k so far!!!! Sheer awesomeness!

Update: 9:50am EST: I had a hard time getting through to make my donation, a great sign! Everyone please give what you can!

Today’s the day! Please try to find some cha-ching for Marco, every bit counts. My $7.87 may not be much, but if enough Americans pitch in we can make a difference!

With the February 10th anniversary of the Crist-Obama stimulus rally coming up, Marco launches a Stimulus Fundraising Bomb with a goal of raising $787,000 – $1000 for every $1 billion wasted on the stimulus. Learn more at www.StimulusBomb.com

Marco spoke at the 2010 Freedom Forum in January:

And hey! It’s Time to Start the Countdown!

Breaking the celluloid ceiling: Kathryn Bigelow wins Directors Guild of America award for ‘The Hurt Locker’…

Right on. An incredible and powerful film, ‘The Hurt Locker’ keeps beating ‘Avatar’. Shockingly, Bigelow is the first woman to win this award in the history of the DGA. (and I must fess up and admit that I really get a kick out of her beating Cameron over and over, especially since he is her ex, lol).

Variety:

Kathryn Bigelow has won the Directors Guild of America award for directing “The Hurt Locker,” becoming the first woman to do so in the 62 years of the DGA awards.Bigelow’s win was announced Saturday night at the conclusion of the DGA awards ceremonies at the Century Plaza. She defeated James Cameron for “Avatar,” Lee Daniels for “Precious,” Jason Reitman for “Up in the Air” and Quentin Tarantino for “Inglourious Basterds.”

Bigelow, who shot the gritty drama in Jordan, was only the seventh female to be nominated for the DGA trophy.

Bigelow said she was “stunned, honored and proud” in her brief acceptance speech.

“I felt A deep obligation to tell this story with as much honesty as possible,” she added. “This is the most incredible moment of my life.”

The DGA award is viewed as a reliable predictor of the Academy Award for best director. The same director has won both in all but six years since 1948, including last year, when Danny Boyle won both trophies for “Slumdog Millionaire.”…

Obama to try 9/11 terrorists as civilians in American courts- go to theBravest.com to object

Update: A moment of levity in a sea of despair courtesy of RedState:

What do Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, mastermind of the September 11th terrorist attacks, and uninsured 20 year olds have in common?

In Barack Obama’s America, they both go to jail — but the terrorist has to be convicted first.

HotAir is covering the story

Go to TheBravest.com to object to this travesty

Recently, Congress voted down a bi-partisan bill that would have ensured that the terrorists who brought death and destruction to our homeland on September 11, 2001 would be tried as war criminals in military courts, not as common criminals tried in civilian courts with full Constitutional protections on American soil.  The Obama administration has not been truthful with the public about the risks associated with bringing these cases in federal court, where critical evidence will be excluded, classified intelligence will be made available to our enemies, foreign counterterrorism partners will be exposed and the “mastermind of 9/11” will be allowed to mock his victims just blocks from where they died.

theBravest.com has partnered with 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong and America and Keep America Safe to bring attention to this travesty. We are recruiting the families & friends of the FDNY to combat this ill-conceived policy of the current administration.

This week letters were sent to President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates questioning the wisdom of bringing these terrorists onto US soil to try them in civilian courts for their grievous crimes against this great country, including the murder of 343 New York City firefighters.

93 of them were my friends.

They were all my brothers.

I cannot stand by and let this happen without a fight.

Thank-you,
