When I first read this article, I figured the headline was a little over the top but the headline is true and this candidate for Sheriff in New Hampshire will love the Republican Party Platform. Maybe this guy should have been on the Platform Committee with his neanderthal comments which are frankly scary. Talking about using deadly force to stop abortions should disqualify him from even owning a gun IMHO not to mention he should never be a Sheriff. What kind of person would make that statement?
Is all this over the top hate rhetoric in the media and Republican Party now causing people to be so angry that they make comments like this candidate?
Frank Szabo wants the people of Hillsborough County, N.H., to know that if they elect him as sheriff this year, he will do whatever it takes to stop doctors from performing abortions — even if that means using deadly force.
In an interview on Wednesday with local television station WMUR, Szabo said he believed sheriffs were granted special powers under the Constitution. That means, he said, he would be empowered to arrest or even use deadly force against doctors for providing legal abortions for women.
“I would hope that it wouldn’t come to that, as with any situation where someone was in danger,” Szabo said. “But again, specifically talking about elective abortions and late term abortions, that is an act that needs to be stopped.”
He clarified it did not apply to cases in which the mother’s life was in danger. “That’s a medical decision. That’s out of the area I’m talking about,” he said.
It’s not clear what kind of chance Szabo has at winning the race. He claims endorsements from Jack Kimball, the former chairman of the state Republican Party, as well as multiple tea party groups. But WMUR reported that the state’s House speaker was already calling for Szabo to drop out of the race after his comments surfaced.
Szabo said he believed sheriffs are given enormous authority under his interpretation of the Constitution. When pressed about what he would do if a prosecutor declined to charge a doctor he arrested, he said the answer was simple.
“If they choose not to do their duty and uphold the Constitution,” Szabo said, “they can be brought up on charges before what’s called a citizen’s grand jury, which is something that’s not that common in the United States. But again, it is something based in common law that’s within the purview of the county sheriff.”

Source: Talking Points MemoTo add to the Sheriff candidate in NH who would use deadly force to stop an abortion, is a County Judge in Lubbock County, TX, who is warning of a Civil War and a United Nations take over. For those who don't know where Lubbock is, it is in the West Texas Panhandle and home of Texas Tech aka as the Sand Aggies in Big 12 Country. Maybe one of the sand storms affected his ability to reason.
Read this article from the Houston Chronicle and once again could not believe what I was reading. Obama has been in office 3 1/2 years -- there has been no gun grab, no Sharia law, or no takeover of the Country by the United Nationals but listening to this loon and others, it's coming. People like this should not be an elected official getting paid by taxpayers dollars IMHO.
Texas official warns of Obama civil war
Compiled by Chronicle Staff Updated 9:53 a.m., Thursday, August 23, 2012
Lubbock County, Texas, judge, the panhandle county's chief administrator, is asking for a tax increase to hire deputies for the inevitable civil war he believes would follow President Obama's re-election.
The way he puts it, Judge Tom Head wants to prepare for the "worst", which to him means "civil unrest, civil disobedience" and possible "civil war", according to a report from Fox 34 Lubbock
Judge Tom Head and Commissioner Mark Heinrich told the station this week that a 1.7 cent tax increase for the next fiscal year was necessary to prepare for many contingencies, including Obama's re-election. He also mentioned to the station that the county needs a pay increase is needed for the district attorney's office and more funds to pay for more sheriff's office deputies.
"He's going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the (United Nations), and what is going to happen when that happens?," Head asked the station during a Monday interview. "I'm thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we're not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we're talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy."
Head also seems to fear the retaliation of such civil unrest.
"Now what's going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He's going to send in U.N. troops. I don't want 'em in Lubbock County. OK. So I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say 'you're not coming in here'.
"And the sheriff, I've already asked him, I said 'you gonna back me' he said, 'yeah, I'll back you'. Well, I don't want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me."
The station reports that the tax hike will provide an additional $832,433 coupled with $2 million in cuts to make the numbers work.
Source: Houston ChronicleWhen Pres George W Bush was President, we would talk about the loony left but now they are joined by the loony right. Conspiracy theories abound about almost anything you can name if Obama is involved. This next article details the special magical powers of Obama to determine the path of a Hurricane. After all, Obama is just one big conspiracy according to the expert Rush Limbaugh. We have Limbaugh to thank his rant about Obama's Conspiracy to Cancel the GOP Convention using a Hurricane for the laugh of the evening. You are probably thinking that cannot be right but that is exactly what he said yesterday. Maybe we should have a Hall of Fame for loony comments -- these three would certainly be included.
Still having a hard time believing that Limbaugh said this but Media Matters has the audio which I linked. Just seeing a clip was enough for me to realize that he has gone over the edge. What I don't understand is why people still pay attention to what he has to say unless they are turning in to get a laugh -- in that case, they should have had been rolling around the floor laughing at his comments about Obama is the cause for the Hurricane maybe headed for Tampa.
Rush Limbaugh Claims Hurricane Is an Obama Conspiracy to Cancel GOP Convention
By: Jason EasleyAugust 22nd, 2012
Rush Limbaugh is even blaming Obama for the weather. On his radio show, Limbaugh claimed that Hurricane Issac is an Obama conspiracy to shut down the Republican convention.
Here is the audio from Media Matters
Transcript from Rush Limbaugh,LIMBAUGH: So we got a hurricane coming. The National Hurricane Center, which is a government agency, is very hopeful that the hurricane gets near Tampa. The National Hurricane Center is Obama. It’s the National Weather Service, part of the commerce department. It’s Obama. The media, it’s all about the hurricane hitting next week, and they’re not talking about Biden, they’re talking about this Hurricane Isaac thing. Well, you know, we who live in south Florida become experts. We don’t need the National Hurricane Center, and we don’t need all these weather dolts analyzing this for us. Well, we need the center, we can look at their charts and graphs, we know what to do, we can read the stuff. I’ve been tracking the charted forecast track of the storm, and they’re moving it sometimes to the east. The latest, 11 o’clock, they moved it to the west as a cat 1 impact in Naples, Fort Myers area.This morning at five a.m., the impact was Miami. We’re still not talking about ’til next Tuesday, so it’s gonna be all over the ballpark between now and then. We don’t know where this thing is gonna hit. The models are moving it more and more out into the Gulf. I wouldn’t be surprised if this thing hits in Louisiana someplace when it’s all said and done. Just kidding. Nobody knows, but they’re desperately hoping, they’re so desperately hoping for Tampa. The media, you know, I can see Obama sending FEMA in in advance of the hurricane hitting Tampa so that the Republican convention is nothing but a bunch of tents in Tampa, a bunch of RVs and stuff. (laughing) Make it look like a disaster area before the hurricane even hits there.According to Limbaugh, Obama is so worried about Mitt Romney that he had the National Hurricane Center change the path of the storm, and the president intends to send FEMA into Tampa to make the Republican convention look like a disaster area.
One could argue that the Republican convention is going to be a disaster, no matter what the hurricane does, but that wouldn’t stop Rush Limbaugh from cooking up an Obama related weather conspiracy theory.
If the Republican Party wanted to avoid any potential weather problems, they could have made the decision not to hold their convention in South Florida at the peak of hurricane season. Seriously, who in the Republican Party thought it would be a great idea to hold their convention in South Florida in late August?
What Limbaugh was trying to do here was cover up for the horrible decision making skills of the Republican Party by blaming Obama. The president is leading in almost every poll. He doesn’t need to create a distraction around a hurricane. In fact, the Obama campaign is probably hoping beyond hope that America gets four days of Mitt Romney.
Romney is the first candidate in modern history who has actually hurt himself by campaigning. The more voters see of Romney, the less they like him. The best thing that could happen to the Republican Party is that the spotlight is not placed on their nominee.
The Republican convention is going to be a showcase for unpopular politicians highlighting the damage that they have done to the Republican brand. Democrats would never hope for anyone to be placed in harm’s way by hurricane. That type of thinking sounds more like Limbaugh than any Democrat out there.
Limbaugh’s rant today proved that Republicans are so blinded by Obama that they are even willing to blame him for the weather.
There’s no Obama weather conspiracy here. Just more Republican whining and blaming Obama for their own lousy decision making.What has these people so stirred up? Are they guessing or have they seen the internal polling that is slightly different from the public polling that is being released to keep this a close race. Romney/Ryan are lying all over the place about Obama when it comes to Medicare and Welfare. Even when called on it, they keep lying which is a sign of pure desperation out of candidates.
Now the most conservative Republican Platform in modern times is expected to be approved Monday night that IMHO is going to be driving women and minorities away from the Republican Party even more. Would think seniors will be be following them out the exit in pretty big numbers when they wake up and find the truth that Romney/Ryan are nothing but liars when it comes to social security.
Just don't see a path for Romney to win and all their lies plus the Republican Platform are going to catch up to them. Never thought I would see Ryan lying about pro-life matters or even social security since he used the Obama savings from fraud, waste, and abuse, to lower the debt but now says Obama is robbing the money from social security when he knows that is a lie. Shame on Ryan for being nothing more
then a parrot of the liar Romney. I thought he had more ethics then to tell bold faced lies. I was wrong.
This should an interesting fall especially if you are not in a battleground state where they are going to be subjected to wall to wall advertisements. Will Romney ever tell the truth or show his income taxes for more than two years? My bet is on NO. Would also bet these three people in the articles Szabo, Head, and Limbaugh suspect Romney is going lose big and they cannot stand the thought of four more years of Obama as President. Otherwise their comments make even less sense.
