Meet Clint Didier's Defeatist Friends

Welcome to Clint Didier's World.


A world where America is not extraordinary. A world where America is just another country among all the rest. A world where America is forced to apologize for being an "empire." A world where America unilaterally retreats from the war on terrorism. A world where America sends pirates and mercenaries to fight its battles. And s world where "conservatism" means slashing defense budgets and legalizing drugs.

Today, Washington U.S. Senate candidate Clint Didier conducted a "radio marathon" featuring many guests that share these same beliefs.

10:00 AM guest Bruce Fein, in a September 2, 2008 address to Ron Paul's "Rally For The Republic" in Minneapolis, offered a critique of the Bush administration's interventionist policy and advocating a more non-interventionist foreign policy. Fein also harshly criticized the anti-terror policies of the Bush White House, including wiretapping and detention of terror suspects.

In April 2009, Fein criticized President Barack Obama for declining to prosecute Bush administration officials for composing CIA memos justifying torture during interrogations.

Fein also is an advocate for the legalization of marijuana.

11:00 AM guest Tom Mullen recently wrote:

The gargantuan U.S. military establishment survives because American soldiers and civilians continue to accept the assertion that it is necessary to preserve our freedom.
11:30 AM guest Peter Schiff, Republican Senate candidate in Connecticut, is pro-abortion and doesn't believe the federal government has the right to ban partial birth abortions. He also supports legalizing drugs, including cocaine and heroin.

And of course there was Didier's hero, Ron Paul.  Paul recently teamed up with Barney Frank, yes that Barney Frank, to call for cutting defense spending by $1 trillion at a time when al-Qaeda still vows a strike on the U.S., Russia is considering new strategic bombers, and Iran and North Korea continue to pursue nuclear arsenals.

I'm surprised Barney wasn't on the radio marathon.

In any case, Clint is getting a head start on his next career.  I fully expect him to soon join the ranks of far-right paranoids like Alex Jones on the airwaves.

Because after next Tuesday, his political career is finished.

Tom,
I did not hear this, but would be mildly interested to know if Clint Didier clarified his position on any of the issues you raise.

I attended a Tea Party event in Yakima where speakers said we would all be implanted with computer chips as part of the anti-christ's plan for a one-world order. Didier did not address those kind of statements from his fellow keynote speakers.

His silence is deafening.

You will be called to account for your lies and half truths one day. You are bearing false witness and digging a trap for your brother and you know it.

Because you have bought in to the lies you have been told for so long you no longer recognize the truth when you hear it. You believe IT to be the lie, and erroneously rail against it.

Clint has stated and clarified and justified his positions beyond a shadow of a doubt and has proven himself to be the wise, knowlegdeable, patriotic defender of liberty the constitution and the American people that he is.

Your vicious lies and half truths slander a great citizen statesman. And for what? To get another sleazy, spineless middle of the road know-nothing war mongering, taxing, spending, lying, cheating stealing good for nothing politician into office? The very same that have been running this country into the ground for years?

If that's the case look in the mirror my friend. YOU ARE THE DEFEATIST! You are the one that wants America to fail. You are the one who will bow down to our enemies when we become their financial slaves due to borrowing and spending beyond our means. The one who will grovel for your life when we've run out of money to defend this great country.

Clint wants to save this country, not destroy it through our current unsustainable foreign policy and . He wants to pull our troops back to defend this country not the bloody sands of some far off land, that has zero potential of striking us. especially if we were defending our own borders and paying attention to who is in our country illegally. Clint wants our government to once again serve the people not the other way around. He wants it to know its roll and stick to the powers it was given in the constitution, and to not overstep its boundaries any longer. The federal government does not get to make up its own rules. It does not get to go to war on a whim or without a declaration of war. It does not get to search or spy seize the property of American citizens without a warrant and good cause. It does not get to indefinitely detain or kill American citizens without a trial. It does not get to violate the bill of rights period. Yet year after year the politicians we send to Washington DC wipe their posteriors with the bill of rights, with the constitution, with the American peoples' hard earned tax money.

Now finally we have someone like Mr. Didier who's had enough and is willing to standing up to fight the corruption and the dereliction of duty which is so rampant in DC and here we have some ungrateful citizen like yourself, who should be cheering him on, but is instead making stuff up about things he doesn't understand for a purpose he thinks is right but is in fact the very thing he is unwittingly truly against. Tyranny and the loss of our sovereignty and our great country. Shame on you.

If you have read this much without deleting this comment so far then maybe there is hope that your mind isn't completely closed. There is the possibly it is open enough to go back and reconsider your misguided accusations. If you truly considered, researched and understood Clint's positions and his reasons for having them you would find that they were very logical and very concrete, and that you would even agree with most of them.

But given your apparent propensity to lie and twist words I doubt this comment will remain on your page for very long. You wouldn't want to expose your readers to your deceit. So if you indeed are going to delete this I would like you to first reread the top paragraph one more time and remember unless you cease to deceive and retract and revise words and deeds you will be held accountable someday by he who watches over all of us. Good day, and God bless.

Desperate lies, half truths, guilt by association attempts. Blatant twisting of words and positions. You can pretty much file this page under false.

When does Didier "clarify" his bogus claim of "they've already bought 3,000 military grade shotguns in this health care bill to the IRS so they can arrest the ones who don't pay?"

Political Smell Test: Clint Didier claims health reform bill purchase 3,000 shotguns for IRS

I was leaning heavily towards Didier until he began spewing this stuff. More Ron Paulian conspiracies is the last thing we need in the Senate.

Dear Anonymous,

Thank you.

Thank you for making your post at 2 o'clock in the morning so we can know just what type of person you are.

Thank you for rambling on and attempting to use such a vociferously loquacious lexicon. It shows a grandiose lack of fruitful activities for your campaign to engage in.

Thank you for proving with your every ridiculous utterance that this blog post revealing Clint's liberalism is actually accurate.

Thank you for reposting your comment multiple times. Your annoying persistence is evident of your desperation.

@Lew Waters
The article you posted justifies Clint's alledged mistake.

"So even though Didier's claim is not true, it is conceivable that it could have emerged from a series of widely distributed misstatements about the law – that it hires thousands of new agents, that they would be armed, that they would come after citizens who don't abide by the law. Toss in two truths – that the IRS has somewhere in the neighborhood of 3,000 special agents and that the IRS is in the market for shotguns – and the false story comes together.

Note: Some conservatives accuse FactCheck.org of liberal bias. I have found it to be a good source of information, especially to check the truth of political claims."

@spokenconservative
Your welcome.

Thank you for posting at 9:38am in the morning, so we can see what type of person you are. As if the time of post actually means something. You don't know me or my schedule.

Thank you for understanding basic English. We're there loquacious words in their that gave you difficulty? I thought I kept it pretty simple.

Thank you for being oblivious to what actual conservatism is all about to the point of confusing it with liberalism.

Finally, I do apologize for the multiple post. It gave me an error when I first sent it, too long suppose. I tried again, same result. So I left with the short version.

Kudos for leaving the long version up, for either your benefit or for an object of ridicule, its all the same to me. Good luck gentleman. We are all in this together. May we choose our leaders wisely.

I can't be up until 2am posting comments on a blog because I have a job.

I don't have a dictionary sitting next to my computer to try and make myself seem smarter.

Actual conservatives are NOT against fighting terrorists overseas. Actual conservatives do NOT believe in creating unstable power vacuums across the globe. Actual conservatives are NOT anti-free trade. Actual conservatives do NOT want to return to pre-WWII isolationism/protectionism. Actual conservatives do NOT take bailouts.

Boom. Roasted.
