Abbie Weipert right for the state of Iowa

Abbie Weipert is what District 77 needs in the Iowa State House. She is a 2007 graduate of the University of Iowa with a degree in finance and went back to school while working full time at Transamerica to earn her MBA from the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business. Based on her own track record, she clearly holds education as a high priority. She also works at Kirkwood Community College in Financial Planning, positioning her well to hit the ground running when it comes to the state of Iowa's finances. 
 
Not only is Abbie a beacon of hope for educators and their students, but she has a long-standing record of community service and involvement that includes collaborating with United Way and Last Hope Animal Rescue. She also helps middle school children prepare for the real world through her commitment to Workplace Learning Connection. Her dedication continues into the college realm where she has had mock interviews of soon-to-be college graduates from Kirkwood Community College and the University of Iowa. 
 
Not only do I know Abbie, but I know several of her family members.They have strong family values and an enthusiastic and dedicated work ethic. They support local businesses and care deeply about the communities in which they live. Abbie makes well-informed decisions, is fair and dependable, and has passion for what she believes is right for the state of Iowa. 
 
Her education, professional experience, and sense of community are some of the reasons I support Abbie Weipert for Iowa House District 77. Please help me in supporting her on June 7!

How much has Hillary's email scandal cost taxpayers?

The FBI has devoted 147 agents to this investigation, inumberable hours and likely millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars all because H Rodham Clinton did NOT follow the rules about use of private servers/Emails, during her controversial time as Secretary of State.

Why aren’t there any journalists with enough curiosity to do some research here?

Of course, the answer is that they’re all trying to ‘put lipstick on a pig’ and prop up ‘the queen’.

So-called 'Non-Profit' Planned Parenthood decreases patient services, but brings in more money?

The investigative videos released by the Center for Medical Progress prove that Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts. For those of us who have worked in the abortion industry, the fact that Planned Parenthood puts its profits above all else comes as no surprise.  Planned Parenthood of the Heartland (PPH), which covers Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma recently released its Annual Report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015.  PPH reports 94,858 contraceptive visits, down from 130,980 in 2014.  Breast Exams completed were 5,954, down from 15,221 in 2014 and total patients seen were 48,072, down from 59,989 in 2014.

While this is a significant decrease in patient services, PPH reported that their profits increased by $1,900,000!  Their fundraising rose by $1.3 million and investment income is up nearly $500,000!  That’s a LOT of income for a “non-profit” that claims they need our tax dollars to stay in business.

Thank you,

Hillary Clinton is not fit to be president

She lies every time she opens her mouth.

Her decision making is terrible.   First there was HillaryCare, an epic fail.  She couldn't even get an all Democrat congress to vote on it.  Then there was her recommendation of Janet Reno for Attorney General (gassing women and children in Waco, TX anyone?).  And how about 'TravelGate',which unnecessarily cost taxpayers millions of dollars and people in the White House Travel office unjustly losing their jobs.  How about Hillary Clinton recommending Craig Livingstone to be head of White House security?  That lead to 'FileGate,'  where 900 FBI files were illegally accessed, all Clinton political enemies.

And don't even get me started on her failures, trying to cover up Bill's infidelity, her lack of any accomplishments as a Senator and her record as the worst Secretary of State in my lifetime.

Iowa City's Man of the Year 2015

The Leftist, lying losers at the IC Press-Corruption won’t like naming a non-Liberal, left-wing loon,  (their readership)  but Kirk Ferentz is easily and clearly Iowa City’s man of the year.

Just 5 months ago, some whiners in Iowa City wanted Captain Kirk gone.  Now, those same whiners are complaining they can’t find $500 Rose Bowl tickets to purchase.

Coach Ferentz, the Big10 Coach of the year is, without question, Iowa City’s Person of the Year in 2015.

The media's attack on Ben Carson is disgusting

Politico and other news outlets reported a flat out lie about GOP Presidential candidate Ben Carson.  They did this because he is a black conservative and leading in the polls.  They want to take him down.  Such behavior is disgusting and it's no wonder people distrust the mainstream media.
