Anti-Washington Conservatives Hail Nikki Haley Victory In South Carolina

June 28, 2010 by  

Anti-Washington conservatives hail Nikki Haley victory in South Carolina In the South Carolina Republican gubernatorial primary run-off, state Representative Nikki Haley won the nomination, prompting Tea Party representatives to stress the growing influence of their anti-establishment movement.

Despite allegations of marital infidelity, Haley—who is Indian-American—handily defeated her opponent, U.S. Representative Gresham Barrett, 65 percent to 35 percent. Media reports suggest she surged in the polls after receiving endorsements from high profile GOP members, including former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

According to Richard Viguerie of, Barrett supported the multi-billion Wall Street bailout, which likely diminished his political fortunes. Viguerie issued a statement reminding Americans of his earlier prediction that "Republicans and Democrats alike who support this monstrosity will face the wrath of the voters."

He added that in the current primaries politicians that represent the Washington establishment have been soundly defeated by small government Tea Party candidates.

"This is alarming news for GOP establishment politicians such as John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and all closely associated with them. The Tea Party steamroller is rolling big government Republicans right of town," Viguerie stressed. ADNFCR-1961-ID-19854570-ADNFCR

      ah men homer im with you brother. our snow ball movement is becoming an avalanch.

    • Richard Pawley

      Yes, and don’t wait until 2012. The most important vote of our life may well be in four months. Remember it’s NOVEMBER OR NEVER.


    Go TEA party!! We’re sending a message to America that we will not tolerate the likes of Odumbo and cronies any longer, and we will not tolerate RINO’s either. It’s time for the Second American Revolution, and hopefully, this one will last another 200 years as well. They’ve spent us into oblivion by their back room, closed door deal making schemes, and Americans are sick of it. Let’s get rid of Nimrod Nancy, My boy Lollipop Barney Franks, Bimbo Boxer, Commie Joe Lieberman, Rumpot Reid, Socialist Sherrod Brown, and whoever else has voted our nation into economic chaos. Franklin Raines needs to be prosecuted and the Wall Street Wheelers and Dealers need to go to prison.

    As long as we are going after nimrods, include Greasy Goon Rangel, Cann’t Do Taxes Geithner, Dip Weed Dorgan, Former Majority Leader don’t pay tax cheat Whimp Daschle, as well as the whole socialist democrap party thugs, but we will need some “honesty” lawyers to prostitute them for the American people. Everyone knows Blarney didnt get a round lisping mouth from eating 3 squares a day!

  • Marilyn

    Good for Haley! I’m glad to hear the Tea Party is alive and working very well.

  • marvin

    as a member of the tea party i do not allways support t.p. candidate and just because you say you are a conseritive don,t make it so, that why obama want to police the internet to keep us from finding out the truth,so if you can read and have a computer get the fact,s time changes people most times stay the same, so speak up for the one you agree with most and aginst the one,s you don,t

  • bob pa

    you need to make sure that honest God fearing constitutionalists are the ones you vote for because that is the only way we will get our country back. if he is a constitutionalist make sure he will support the constitution no matter what.

  • bobinpa.

    bob pa- I’m glad we agree on most things. Hope people don’t think we’re the same person.haha What part are you from?

  • http://LiberttyDigest Bruce D.

    I think it was a great victory for her because she fought against character assination. Conservatives have to learn how to deal with that if they wat to fight the left effectively.

    • libertytrain

      Bruce, Linda has some sort of problem with your gentle comment – I’m confused.

  • s c

    In case people aren’t yet sure, the reason why Constitution-hating progressives and similar vermin want us to have a “living” Constitution is because they think we’ll have a ‘better’ one if the Supreme Court renders decisions via a crystal ball. That is, they can’t read the minds of those who died long ago, but a crystal ball would give them the next best thing.
    The core problem with a ‘living” Constitution is in its complete LACK of STANDARDS. A Constitution that has no standards can be altered at will. It will become a tool of social engineers and anyone is drooling at the prospect of enslaving America.
    From now on, ANY candidate for high office in Washington represents a clear and present danger if they are NOT strict constitutionalists. Give NO ONE the benefit of ANT doubt. Be free OR be a slave, America.

    Keep the tea party going,keep the money flowing, it won’t survive unless we all back it!

    Rumors are going around that Nikki HAYLEY was actually born in Calcutta India.Where is the birth certificate????

    • http://naver samurai

      Where is you messiah’s birth certificate? Hmmm…?

    • Pathfinder

      Please remember that Article two deals with THE PRESIDENCY. Neither Article I sec 2 (requirements to be a representative in the house) nor Article I sec 3 (requirements to be a senator) make any referance to a requirement of native born citizenship. Thus, this candidate’s place of birth makes no difference so long as they have been a citizen for the required amount of time. PLEASE, READ THE CONSTITUTION SO THAT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.

        Samurai: my comments were a criticism of jopa, not you. Article 2 DOES have a requirement that THE PRESIDENT be a natural born citizen (Cesarian section does NOT disqualify for this.) or be a citizen at the time of the adoption of the constitution (BO is not old enough to qualify for this exception.). So you are right to ask for BO’s birth certificate.

        • http://naver samurai

          No problem! 100% agree with you. Keep up the good fight fellow patriot!

  • http://gmail i41

    jopa, you simple nomided jackass, most states in fact you brought up a fact . why did Hawaii not present Onumnut’s real birth cerrtificate. I’ll bet before Nikki has a valid birthcertificate. If she was born in ssomewhere else like Arnold in Cala. run for gov. It is not the same as a President, you public urinal schooled drop out. Either the nat on your brains squirrel cage is dying or it is resting, you don’t seem to have a clue what is freedom or what this country stands for. We all know am lib, has a feetish for Sarah Palin, we guess you get tingley over Gagan Kagan, and your Blarney Flanks, you second string buddie!

  • jopa

    i41;What are you trying to say, can you please find an American interpreter to clarify your statement.A whole lot of mumbo jumbo there please lay off the crack or whatever your choice is.

    • http://naver samurai

      Oh gee, another stupid lib coming onto a site to attack and perform character assassination. I suggest you take some of your own advice and get off that kool aid your drinking. It seems to have fried your brain.

      • Pathfinder

        One minor point: At jonestown, they drank Flavor-Aid NOT Kool Aid. Let us not blame the wrong drink mix company.

    • chuck b


      141 is trying to tell you in a way you can understand, we have the birth certificate the copy is on the internet and she really was born in honolulu, hawaii, and she isn’t muslim shes a born again christian and attends some church in chicago, does wright ring any bells???

    • Pathfinder

      In congress, senators and representatives do NOT have to be “natural born citizens” so long as they have been a citizen for 9 years or 7 years respectively. PLEASE, ACTUALLY READ THE CONSTITUTION SO AS TO AVOID RAISING WHAT ARE, IN FACT NON-ISSUES.

  • bob pa

    Linda, I don’t get it, first you tell some one @#^%()(&you and then you RR (rabble rouse) for sedition. Let’s get this strait, 1 the rule of law still applies 2. We still have the first two boxes (ballot and soap) 3. An armed insurrection will firstly be insufficient as the shit hasn’t yet hit the fan and second immoral because we still have the first two boxes. If you want to change you will do it with reason and clarity not with rage and discord. One more thing, they will get my guns by prying my cold dead fingers off them and the price will be heavy! So don’t confuse me with a liberal panderer because i am a realist and a patriot.
    Oh And you don’t need to yell we can read you just fine!
