Thank you to RightKlik for the following information on Van Irion:
Van Irion has been married for 14 years, and he and his wife have two young daughters. A patent and Constitutional attorney with his own law firm, he's admitted to practice law before the U.S. Supreme Court. He has handled several Constitutional cases pro bono, including Obamacare Class Action.

Van is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, having served in Operation Desert Shield as an Air Traffic Controller. Van has a biochemistry degree from the University of California and founded a biotech company to research treatments for stroke and acute injury. He served many years as a volunteer fire fighter and EMT.

Van is currently seeking to serve the public again as the U.S. Congressman for Tennessee’s 3rd Congressional District.
My core philosophy is that our founders got it right more than 200 years ago when they established the Constitution to protect our God given rights by limiting government. They understood that “government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one.” (Thomas Paine)

Unfortunately, the Federal government has repeatedly involved itself in issues in which it has no Constitutional authority and has become intolerable. While claiming this or the other act will “solve the problem”, they have done the opposite and complicated the issues...
Van Irion is fighting a host of Republicans for the GOP nomination in Tennessee's 3rd Congressional District. The Tennessee primary election will be held on August 5.

  1. thanks CL! .hope your weekend is's hot hot hot here!!:)

  2. I am writing this as I watch with dismay as vast numbers of people across the world, including many who should know better, have been duped by the mind-game called Operation Obama.

    Even people with some understanding of the conspiracy have said things like: 'Well, at least he's not Bush' and 'Well, at least it's great to see such a new spirit of hope'. No, he's not Bush - he's potentially far more dangerous; and what is the use of a spirit of 'hope' if it's based on a lie? In fact, what use is 'hope' at all?

    Obama's wife, Michelle, who I wouldn't trust to tell me the date in a calendar factory, said that 'everything begins and ends with hope'. Utter nonsense. Hope is a meaningless emotion because its fruits are always in the future and, by definition, never in the NOW.

    Hope is like riding a carousel horse; no matter how fast you go you never get closer to the one in front. The idea, however, is to persuade you to stay on the horse, despite the inevitable disappointment, in the 'hope' that things will change. But they don't because the very system is designed to prevent it. That's the way 'hope' is employed by the dastardly and devious - take the crap we are giving you now in the 'hope' that things will get better (but we know they won't). Barack Obama is a purveyor of 'hope' because his masters want the people to accept what they are given now in the hope that good times will come.

    Just do what we demand, oops, sorry, Barack demands, and in return he'll inspire you to hope that it is all leading to the Promised Land. It isn't, but, by the time you realize that, it's too late.

    What terrifies the manipulators is that people will abandon hope, as a future, sometime-never projection, and start to demand fairness, justice and freedom now. To avoid this nightmare they need to keep those desires as something to aspire to, not to actually have.

    Thus, their man, Obama, sells 'hope' as a diversion technique, a holding position, to keep the masses from truly rebelling. We have no job, no food on the table and our home has been foreclosed, but at least we have 'hope'. Phew, thank goodness for that.
