Christina Jeffrey, Candidate for US Congress, SC 4th Congressional District

Last week on Facebook, one of our Libertarian leaning friends posted an interesting comment.  It read…”just defriended a Congressional candidate.” -> view here

By the way, they live in the 4th Congressional District, which further fueled my interest.  So I had to inquire…who and why?

Come to find out, the candidate was none other than Christina Jeffrey.  The very candidate who claims to be a Tea Party candidate and invokes the friendship of Ron Paul frequently.

Needless to say, for you Ron Paul supporters out there, this does nothing to help your cause.

Apparently their camp was wanting to remove posts from Facebook that they felt were not on point.  According to our source, it was communicated with him (“paraphrased”) that they were deleting his posts because their ultimate goal was to win.

“Yesterday, I got an email from her daughter saying that she would be deleting posts that are not ‘on topic’. I started smelling a rat, and told her if she did that I would de-friend Christina both on facebook and in person. Within 10 minutes I got a call and a text from Christina saying that we ‘needed to talk’ …

This morning, I got an email from her daughter stating, in part, that ‘the ultimate goal is to win’.”

WOW!!!!  Ultimate goal is to win.  Not help better America, not change the ways of Washington.  It was all about winning.

And this is not the first time she has tried this.

Earlier in 2009, an anonymous poster on our blog made mention of her little served time as historian in Congress and how she was removed for controversial comments concerning history books that didn’t provide all the differing views of the Holocaust.  She was later found to be not in fault, but the particular commenter did not share that.

What happened though is she decided to come after me for allowing the comment to be posted and demanded that I take it down.  The point of the comment was true, it just did not share the entire truth.  You can view the comment here and the email here.

Have you had similar experiences with Jeffrey?  Share them below.

UPDATE:
I will grant Paul posts a lot of things, sharing different views.  With that said though, she also made the request that he not mention anything about her history, in particular her stint as Historian under Newt Gingrich.  My apologies for leaving that out.

The Conservativist – 2 Years Ago

The Conservativist

The Conservativist

Believe it or not, 2 years ago this past weekend, The Conservativist began it’s ascension into the Blogdom of SC Politics.

Originally titled “A Conservative Voice”, The Conservativist was just a college project.  It sat in the obscurities of “blogger” for 3 odd years until a grumpy old man took the stage one hot May evening in Columbia.

A few weeks later I attended Congressman Bob Inglis’ Let’s Talk event at Wade’s Restaurant.  Me being the one who is not afraid to ask questions dropped one about that grumpy old man to Inglis and why he was so hated. Something along those lines anyways.

But before I left, Jason Spencer stopped me to ask me a few questions about the grumpy old man and Rick Beltram.  Jason informed me in the interview that Beltram had banned the grumpy old man from attending events and he asked my comments.  He was working on a bigger story than Inglis’ event that day.

July 4th, 2007, Jason Spencer’s article landed on the doorsteps of the people in Spartanburg, GOP maverick Paul shunned in Spartanburg.

The Conservativist immediately began building a readership with Ron Paul supporters. The first thing we wrote about was Beltram’s response to the article.  Some of those individuals who were already engrosed in the campaign picked up on it fast and forwarded it around.  I saw how much traffic we were getting and thought, traffic is good, lets write more about Paul.  10 of the first 11 articles we wrote in 2007 concerned Ron Paul and Rick Beltram.

It became an effort to post any press release we received.  Even if we disagreed with it, we would still run it just for coverage sake.  We may not write about the issues, but I believe people want to hear multiple sides of the story and we wanted to make that information more available.  I wanted to know when the candidates were going to be in town, I wanted to hear all of them speak.

I was also hoping to provide my daughter an opportunity that I did not get.  Being a Navy brat, we traveled a good bit and by the UCMJ, my father could not really attend any of the events.  I thought how cool it would be to be in Kindergarten and be able to say I have met the President of the United States.

A passion also began to develop.  I grew more concerned with our leadership and the direction of our State and Nation.  So we began expanding and getting involved in local politics.

It aggrevated me that things these candidates were saying never left the meetings.  You never saw it on the news or heard anything about it.  So it was time to start reporting on some of this.  We tried covering events when the candidates came to town, but our coverage was sporadic at best.

A lot has changed since then.  We have built up a network of contacts and people provide us with a lot of insight.  My job also allows me to take a little more time to contribute to the site, creating more content.

With all of that said, thanks for your readership for the last two years and if you have any information or would like to write for The Conservativist, let us know.

Bernanke Threatens Economic Collapse If Fed Audited

Ben Bernanke, Federal Reserve Chairman

Ben Bernanke, Federal Reserve Chairman

Representative John Duncan questions Bernanke about Ron Pauls H.R. 1207, Audit the Federal Reserve Act, which is cosponsored by more than half of the Congress.

In the interview Bernanke claims that the Fed is opening up, but then makes the following statement.

“If the GAO audits the operational aspects and makes judgements on their decisions, that effectively becomes a take over of monetary policy by the Congress, a repudiation of the independence of the Federal Reserve which would be highly destructive to the stability of the financial system, the dollar, and our national economic situation.”

That lead me to believe there is some extremely questionable activities going on in the Federal Reserve if Bernanke makes this kind of “threat”.

He is telling Congress they have no right to perform this audit, but remind me what Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution:

To establish a uniform rule of naturalization, and uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States;

To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;

To provide for the punishment of counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States;

You tell me, I think Bernanke is afraid of losing his job and his stranglehold on the American People.  Here’s the video.
