Yesterday morning, I had the chance to speak with Renee Ellmers, who is running for Congress against Bob Etheridge (D-NC), he of man-handling those who dare to question him fame. Or, rather, infamy. Etheridge is a clear-cut example of the arrogance of those firmly entrenched in Washington, DC, which is what prompted Renee Ellmers to run in the first place.
As a nurse, whose husband is a surgeon, she knew that doctors don’t nefariously lop off limbs nor reap tonsils willy nilly for cash money. She decided that she needed to speak out during the town halls that were meant to discuss the then proposed Obamacare legislation. Upon doing so, she saw the sneering contempt that Democrat Bob Etheridge had for his own constituents.
This spurred her to run for the seat herself and she elaborates on that in the interview. We also discuss more of the unintended, and intended, consequences of Obamacare, her endorsement by the Susan B. Anthony list as a strong Pro-Life voice, Mama Grizzlies and what they stand for, Arizona’s immigration law, cap and trade and why Renee Ellmers thinks that carbon offsets/global warming is the greatest scam of the century.
First clip is below and the rest are after the jump. If you like what you hear as much as I did, or if you would like to learn more about Renee Ellmers (and lend her your support), please visit ReneeForCongress.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It seems Donald Trump constantly re-tweeting white nationalists on Twitter has paid off. A group of white supremacists has formed a Super PAC and they are supporting Trump. Isn’t that lovely? From CNN: New Hampshire voters may be stunned to hear the latest robocall asking for their vote; it’s from white nationalists with a simple, disturbing message. “We don’t | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES New Orleans has a habit, it seems, of being ignored by the press. At least, ignored when it comes to mass shootings. Or this case, attempted mass shooting. You may remember that, back in November, there was a mass shooting in the city which received virtually no national press. Now we have a story where not only did someone | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Hillary Clinton is the ultimate Washington DC insider. She has been there for over 20 years. She was a first lady. Then she was a Senator. Then she ran for President. Then she was a lousy secretary of state. Then she went and made tens of millions of dollars giving speeches thanks in large part to her status as | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES With Iowa in the rearview and New Hampshire just around the corner, more and more people are lining up to take official sides, and Rubio is starting to run away with the endorsement game, for whatever that is worth.
