George Zimmerman For President?
Public Policy Polling Offers Alaska Republicans Controversial Choice
Recently, Public Policy Polling included George Zimmerman — the man acquitted of charges surrounding the 2012 killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin — on a poll to see who Alaskans would favor as a GOP presidential contender in 2016.
In an email to TheBlaze, PPP director Tom Jensen explained that “[Zimmerman] had high favorability ratings with Republican voters in some national polls, so we were just curious how he would do.”
Ted Yoho Says He Would Support A Birther Bill
Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) told supporters he would back a bill to investigate the authenticity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, though he conceded the ‘birther’ movement was a “distraction” from more pressing issues.
Right Wing Watch posted audio of Yoho’s comments from a Saturday town hall, in which the Florida Republican said he called his colleague Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) to pledge his support for a potential bill that would launch an investigation into whether the president’s birth certificate is fake. During the same town hall, Yoho claimed a 10 percent tax on tanning beds under the Affordable Care Act was “racist,” because people born with darker skin don’t need to tan.
Cathie Adams, Former Texas GOP Chair: Immigration Reform Will Lead To Mark Of The Beast, ‘End Times’
Cathie Adams served as chair of the Texas Republican Party for the larger part of a year between 2009 and 2010. Now she’s railing against immigration reform, citing her belief that it will lead to an identification system indicative of biblical End Times.
Speaking with Christian radio host Rick Wiles last week in an exchange first captured by Right Wing Watch, Adams decried a biometric scanning proposal present in immigration reform legislation already passed by the Senate, claiming that it would give amnesty to people from Muslim countries who “are not here with the best intentions for America.”
When Wiles decried a “biometric scanning” proposal present in the Senate’s bill, Adams suggested that such a plan would manifest itself by giving “lost foreigners” the sort of “mark of the beast” cited in End Times prophecies.
“And, of course, we know in biblical prophecy that that is the End Times,” Adams said of the initiative. “That is going to be the brand either on our foreheads or on the back of our hands. That is demonic through and through. That is End Times prophecy. There is no question about that.”
Rick Scott Plans To Resume Voter Purge Effort In Florida
MIAMI, Aug 5 (Reuters) – Florida Governor Rick Scott is planning a new effort to purge non-U.S. citizens from the state’s voter rolls, a move that last year prompted a series of legal challenges and claims from critics his administration was trying to intimidate minority voters.
Last year, Florida officials said they had drawn up an initial list of 182,000 potential non-citizens. But that number was reduced to fewer than 200 after election officials acknowledged errors on the original list.
Scott, a Republican, is preparing to run for re-election next year. He has repeatedly said the aim of any purge is to protect the integrity of the voter rolls.
