Before you scroll down and read Delegate Shank’s Newsletter, I want everyone to know one thing, this is NOT a Negative Campaign, what this is, is showing the facts of someone who claims to be one thing, but his voting record proves he is another. I do not have to apologize for any of the Campaign Messages coming from Camp Shank, he is telling the truth about Someone who has “LOST THEIR WAY” and “FORGOTTEN HOW TO BE A CONSERVATIVE”. With that being said, here are some of the Highlights of Senator Don “The Democrat” Munson’s beliefs and votes.

The Baltimore Sun’s gubernatorial double standard
Last week, after The Baltimore Sun’s editorial board officially kicked-off their re-elect Governor O’Malley campaign with the publishing of “Promises, reconsidered”, I anxiously awaited a similar scribe holding the current governor accountable for pledges made over the past four years.
Glad I didn’t hold my breath – even though my face would by now be a lovely shade of democrat blue.
“Promises, reconsidered”, which ends with a message to voters that, “They need to demand that Mr. Ehrlich prove he’s more than just another politician making promises,” focuses on the former governor’s vow to roll back the state’s 2007 sales tax increase.

Subject: Upcoming Panel: Can Conservatism Survive Mass Immigration?
Contact: Bryan Griffith, (202) 466-8185, firstname.lastname@example.org
Panel to Examine Political Impacts of Current Policy
WASHINGTON (August 2010) – Over the past five years, the immigration debate has become a top priority for many voters, pundits, and politicians. Among conservatives and members of the Republican Party there has been disagreement over the path forward. Some consider support for an expansive immigration policy – including amnesty, loose enforcement, and increased legal immigration – as essential in order to court immigrant voters. Others believe that continued mass immigration is incompatible with the goals of shrinking government and, in fact, strengthens the hand of those calling for expanded government and more liberal social policies.
The Center for Immigration Studies will hold a panel to consider these points of view, featuring two leading authors and two respondents.
The panel discussion will take place on Wednesday, September 1, 2010, at 9:30 a.m. in theZenger Room at the National Press Club, 14th and F Streets, NW. Admission is free and open to the public.
Speakers will include:
James G. Gimpel, Professor of Government at the University of Maryland, College Park, and author of the study, ‘Immigration, Political Realignment, and the Demise of Republican Political Prospects.’
Ramesh Ponnuru, senior editor at National Review magazine.
David Frum, editor of FrumForum.com and author of Comeback: Conservatism that Can Win Again.
Moderator: Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent research institute which examines the impact of immigration on the United States
This is a very important event. We are all well aware that the two major driving forces that have created the immigration disaster we are confronted with are the “intellectual elite’s” greed for votes (a permanent majority) and the corporate community’s insatiable appetite for cheap (anything but) labor. The Center for Immigration Studies event announced below will focus on the former. It is important that we improve our understanding of the dramatic impact that a continuation of our current immigration policies will have on our political alignments and therefore on the future of our nation. Tomorrows CIS event will deal with both. Also, CIS is doing great work and they deserve our support. Hope to see you there.

Hugh Hewitt: Seventy percent of Americans know they’ve been conned
By: Hugh Hewitt
August 29, 2010
Minimum estimate of Saturday’s crowd on the Mall: 300,000 Maximum estimate: One million people.
Meaning of the crowd: An enormous upheaval in the emotions of average Americans is coursing through the country, with a certain significance for November’s elections. It will have a lasting, profound impact on America’s political direction.
Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin provided an occasion to glimpse this undeniable phenomenon. Of course, the interpretations of what the phenomenon is and what its consequences will be will keep the chattering class busy for weeks, if not years.
Some on the left are trying, with increasing desperation, to use old and new media to brand this surge in public participation in politics as sinister, even though it was preceded by a surge from the left of people and energy into President Obama’s campaign.
The new tools of communication and the ease of movement have unleashed a tumultuous era of politics driven by the demand that elites not attempt to speak for, or condescend to, average citizens. They will not quietly or passively be lectured to, or insulted by, the president, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg or any anchor on any network, any columnist in any paper, or any blogger on any Web site.
The people on the Mall and the millions more who watched the gathering with satisfaction rather than fear are quite simply sick of the left, and of its vast sneer toward the traditions, values and, yes, faith of the American middle class.
The American Enterprise Institute’s Arthur Brooks has quite accurately described America as a 70/30 nation, with the 70 percent presently massively underrepresented in the federal government, the Manhattan-Beltway media elite and academia.
The 70 percent is appalled by the placebo economics practiced by the president and the Congress over the past two years, shocked by its profligacy with the wealth of the republic, and sickened by the looting of the next generation’s opportunities.
The 70 percent did not want Obamacare, but it has been thrust upon them.
The 70 percent did not want federal judges to declare "game over" in the complex discussion of what marriage is and means.
The 70 percent want a fence on the border that works, and do not want their concern over unregulated immigration dismissed as nativisim.
The 70 percent are not ashamed of their belief in God, deeply resent being labeled bigots because they view ground zero as land that ought not to be exploited for "messaging" of any sort by any group, and are enraged by the scorn which they encounter everywhere in media except Fox News and talk radio.
The 70 percent believe that the federal government is remote and clueless, and that the Constitution’s principles of enumerated and limited powers and the sovereignty of the states are vibrant, important core values to the republic.
The 70 percent think Iran is in the grip of an evil, theocratic fascism, and that Israel is our true friend and ally deserving of our full-throated support.
We are in the middle of a perilous economic passage to a new competitiveness across the globe. We are watching other countries across the globe respond to the new demands of competitiveness by shrinking the public sector and encouraging private-sector growth. But American education is crippled by bureaucracy and burdened by the inability of a political class to demand reform of the practices and pensions of the public sector. Children have been hostages of this countrywide collapse of common sense for a generation, despite wave after wave of "reform".
Two years into what had been sold as a new politics and a new approach, the 70 percent are fully aware that they have been conned, suckered, and taken to the cleaners by a hyper-ideological amalgam of leftist public intellectuals, snarling bloggers, career politicians with limited abilities who are often corrupt, and a president wholly inexperienced in the management of complex problems who is in way over his head and prisoner to slogans and schemes that make for great campus debates — but for disaster in the real world.
The people on the Mall were saying much more than "this far and no farther." They were saying "rewind and restart." They will hold that thought and that purpose as they peacefully, but with great passion and purpose, insist on real change come Nov. 2.

CASA EVENT TONITE IN BALTIMORE
Hate crimes common theme is hate, not race
August 27th, 2010 4:04 pm ETA town-hall meeting has been scheduled for
6 p.m. Aug. 30, Central American Solidarity Association (CASA) of
Maryland’s Baltimore City offices. It will be conducted in Spanish and
will address concerns from the community and discuss crime prevention
tips. Spanish-speaking police officers also will be present.
Martin Reyes, 51, was beaten to death Aug. 21 by a mentally unstable
19-year-old man who reported that he committed the crime because he
hated Mexicans. The alleged killer, Jermaine Holley, had been ordered to
appear in court on charges that he violated his probation from a June
2009 drug arrest and conviction.
On July 13, District Court Judge L. Robert Cooper issued, and then
rescinded, a warrant ordering Holley’s arrest, according to the
“When elected officials use hateful language to describe immigrants,
we should not be surprised when criminals understand that as a
declaration of open-season on my people,” said Gustavo Torres,
CASA’s executive director. “We weep today for Martin Reyes, a
friend of CASA who was murdered for being Latino, and commit in his name
to eradicating the hatred and violence affecting Latinos,
African-Americans, and other city residents.”
Activists attending the press conference blamed the lack of an explicit
policy banning police cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement making immigrant residents unlikely to come forward and
share information with law enforcement.
Reyes was a member of CASA. The group held a press conference Aug. 24
two-blocks from where the murder took place.
“I frequently speak to parishioners who are victimized or witness a
crime yet do not feel comfortable calling the police,” said Father Bob
Wotjek, who pastors a majority-immigrant parish in Baltimore.
“Unfortunately, every immigrant knows of a case where someone was
stopped by the police for a minor traffic infraction and ended up in
immigration custody and if I were able to point to an explicit policy
whereby Baltimore police did not collaborate with ICE except for serious
crimes, it would be enormously easier to convince people to come
Hating someone because of their race, gender, sexual orientation, faith
or lack thereof, or anything else is a terrible thing. It destroys the
hater inside and sometimes destroys victims as in the Reyes case.
But where was CASA when Robert Krentz, an Arizona rancher, was murdered
by an illegal in March? Okay, that is an Arizona crime and CASA is a
So where was the solidarity association when Lila Meizell was beaten,
then burned alive, by immigrants in Montgomery County? Immigrants she
had employed who thanked her by attempting to bilk her out of about
Where was press conference for Carlos Millian or Tai Lam when they were
murdered by Hispanics in the Washington suburbs?
Murder has one thing in common—hate. The challenge is to educate and
love. Calling people names and refusing to debate, as CASA does, is not
part of a constructive solution. It is time for the group to consider a
change in policy
Any politician who refuses to work to secure our borders and create an immigration system that has integrity is either corrupt or too dumb to keep his (her) job. Any politician, irrespective of party affiliation who favors Comprehensive Immigration Reform and the outrageous betrayal that this would represent given the national security implications that this program would have, should be shown the door at the next election!
The Gazette made a goof on the Shank Endorsement by Bartlett, as I stated in the Blog I posted, but I have taken it down as to do the right thing and many of my other postings stated that, if the Gazette goofed, I would take it down, I have, however, that does not mean it is on me to have The Gazette or Munson’s campaign fix it, that they will have to do on their own.
Q & A with Washington County Candidates for House of Delegates by Herald Mail – Get To Know who they are before Voting
Md. delegate candidates weigh in on issues
Editor’s note: The Herald-Mail asked candidates in some contested races in the Sept. 14 primary election to respond to eight questions. The responses of candidates for each of those races will be published over two days.
The first four responses by candidates in contested races for the Maryland House of Delegates are below. The final four responses by those candidates will appear Monday.
The Q&A’s that have already run can be found on The Herald-Mail website at www.herald-mail.com.
Dear Senators Kittleman, Lenett, Colburn, Harris, and Reilly:
On behalf of Help Save Maryland, for which I am a Director ( www.HelpSaveMaryland.com), I want to express our disappointment in how SB-844 was handled.
Help Save Maryland opposes the presence of illegal aliens in Maryland; and although we supported SB-844 in the 2010 GA session, we were not happy with it.
HSM obtained advice from the Immigration Law Reform Institute (www.irli.org) to improve SB-844 so that it would avoid any Constitutional issues. And we communicated this advice numerous times to Senator Kittleman’s staff. In the end, however, our requests to revise SB-844 were ignored. And as you know, SB-844 was referred to interim study, effectively killing the bill. In fact, when I complained to one of your staff post-mortem, the response I received was that "some of our other constituents oppose SB-844."
In contrast, Del. Warren Miller’s staff used our advice to improve HB-721, the companion bill in the House.
Constituents who want Maryland government to use taxpayer funds to employ illegal aliens for personal gain are undermining Federal law and some are doing so with criminal intent.
HSM considers a vote to require State contractors to use E-Verify as a litmus test for candidates to the Maryland General Assembly. If bills like SB-844 or HB-721 are never voted on, then cowardly legislators can avoid charges of violating their oath of office. Your fellow Senators on the other side of the aisle undoubtedly know this. I do not believe that any of you are cowards when it comes to supporting the rule-of-law or to supporting the interests of law-abiding citizens against the interests of criminals.
HSM requests that BEFORE the 2011 session you work with HSM to craft a bill that will be voted upon.
After the November election, we will be in touch with you for this purpose.
Thank you for your attention and support.
