Ron Paul wins Iowa Straw Poll

Michele Bachmann's job is infiltration of the Tea Party to overthrow USA for the Jew World Odor banksters at the private foreign "Federal" Reserve Bank that counterfeits all so-called "US dollar bills" (Federal Reserve Debt Notes) and keeps (steals) 100% of federal income taxes. There is no law requiring payment of income tax, since that law would be unconstitutional. All unconstitutional "laws" are void from inception, according to the US Supreme Court. Bachmann lived in Israel and hates Arab Semites and hates Christian Semites.

Michele Bachmann's Roy Blunt Endorsement Sparks Tea Party Fury

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is facing fire from supporters of the Tea Party movement over her decision to endorse Republican Congressman Roy Blunt in his primary fight for Missouri's GOP Senate nomination.

In the wake of news that Bachmann plans to campaign alongside Blunt in St. Louis, Mo. this coming weekend, a coalition of Tea Party groups issued a statement expressing their dissatisfaction with the conservative congresswoman over her impending trip.

"We were shocked," explained the Missouri Tea Party alliance. "We believe she has been grossly misled if she understands him to be a Missouri Tea Party candidate."

At issue for the anti-tax groups is the fact that they have "NOT" endorsed Blunt in his primary pursuit against State Sen. Chuck Purgason.

"Tea Party participants believe the spending in Washington has to STOP," the Tea Party groups asserted. "Roy Blunt voted for TARP and Cash for Clunkers. For Michele Bachmann to come to Missouri and give the impression that all the Missouri Tea Parties support Roy Blunt is an abomination of everything we have been standing up for."

But this isn't the first time that Bachmann -- who has achieved rock star status in the Tea Party -- has sparked controversy in the conservative movement by deciding to stand behind a particular candidate.

Last month, Bachmann saw palpable backlash after she recorded a robo-call for New Jersey Rep. Chris Smith in his primary campaign against Tea Party-backed candidate Alan Bateman. Bateman charged that Bachmann "betrayed the Tea Party movement" with her endorsement and added that it "showed her true colors in that she is nothing more than a politician using the Tea Party movement for her own advancement."

Bachmann Drops Out of Tea Party Convention

More turmoil for the National Tea Party Convention: Firebrand Michele Bachmann is dropping out. The Minnesota congresswoman says she's decided against speaking at next week's event in Nashville over concerns that organizers are fleecing the political faithful. Sarah Palin remains on the docket, with a reported $100,000 speaking fee.

A spokesman emphasizes that Bachmann has a problem with this particular event, not the tea party movement in general. In fact, another group—the Tea Party Patriots—is claiming credit. "We put pressure on Bachmann, and we're glad that she didn't go," a coordinator tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I'm glad that she did the right thing."

Bachmann Lived on Kibbutz, Staunchly Pro-Israel

For Rep. Michele Bachmann, staunch support for Israel is a personal matter: Teenage Bachmann spent a summer working on a kibbutz in Israel.

The 55-year-old Minnesota Republican, founder of the House Tea Party Caucus and a candidate for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, went to Israel in 1974, immediately after graduating from high school. Her mission was sponsored by Young Life, a Christian ministry.

“I always had this love and appreciation for Israel because I was a Christian,” Bachmann, who was raised as a Lutheran, said in an interview with Matthew Continetti, opinion editor of The Weekly Standard. “It’s the foundation of our faith. All of the Bible is about Israel.”

The Israel she found in 1974 was “pretty grubby,” she recalled — brutal heat, soldiers with guns at the airport, customs officers at card tables on the tarmac, chickens everywhere.

The youth housing where Bachmann — then Michele Amble — lived on the kibbutz was called the ghetto. Lizards climbed the walls. She rose at 4 a.m. and rode to work on a flatbed truck pulled by an old diesel tractor. Her job: pulling weeds from cotton fields.

Soldiers escorted the workers everywhere, searching for mines. “You’re hoping at 4 o’clock in the morning that they see everything,” she told Continetti.

The experience has never left Bachmann’s mind. “If you consider what it was like in 1948,” she said, “and literally watch flowers bloom in a desert over time — I don’t know if any nation has paralleled the rise of Israel since 1948.”

Today, Bachmann is a member of Christians United for Israel and one of Israel’s strongest supporters in Congress. She has visited the Jewish state several times since taking office.

One Jewish Minnesota Republican has told Continetti of speeches at local Republican Jewish Coalition events where Bachmann has brought cheering audiences to their feet.

Sportbike Track Time events at Nashville cancelled in 2012?

Nashville Superspeedway Will Not Seek NASCAR Races

GLADEVILLE, Tenn. – The Nashville Superspeedway has announced it will not seek NASCAR races for the 2012 season. The speedway's owner made the announcement Wednesday morning.

Dover Motorsports, which owns the speedway in Wilson County, said it has notified NASCAR that it will not seek any race sanctions for 2012.

It appears the track will be shutting down next year, and there's a possibility it won't be re-opening.

The company has been trying unsuccessfully to secure a NASCAR Sprint Cup race since 2001 and superspeedway general manager Cliff Hawks said the track cannot continue without a date, despite what he calls a strong Nashville market.

The decision effectively ends the Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series from visiting the 1.33-mile concrete track any longer.

The company can't get any of the really big NASCAR races here, and they are not making enough money to keep the gates open.

Dover opened the 1.33-mile track 10 years ago. The superspeedway has hosted NASCAR trucks and Nationwide races and also had a slot on the Indy Racing League schedule before losing that after the 2008 season.

"Nashville is a tremendous market filled with passionate race fans. We have some extremely dedicated and talented employees who have made this track a great destination, but the reality is, after ten years of effort, we have to face the fact that without a Sprint Cup race and/or a significant change in the operating model for other events, we simply cannot continue," said Cliff Hawks, Vice President and General Manager of Nashville Superspeedway.

This year Nashville hosted a pair of truck series-Nationwide Series doubleheader weekends. Both were poorly attended.

Events already on the schedule for the remainder of 2011 will not be impacted by the announcement.

The Nashville Superspeedway sits on 1,400 acres near Route 840, near Gladeville in Wilson County, south of Lebanon.

Owners said the concrete superspeedway has 25,000 permanent grandstand seats, lights for nighttime racing, foundation work for a dirt track, short track and drag strip and infrastructure in place to expand to 150,000 seats.

"We deeply appreciate all the hard work that our employees have put into making Nashville Superspeedway such a remarkable facility," said Denis McGlynn, President & CEO of Dover Motorsports. "We have also had years of unrelenting support from state, county and local officials and from the racing community – from racing fans and drivers to sponsors, team owners and various sanctioning bodies."

McGlynn said Dover Motorsports was evaluating options for the track, including a possible sale.

The Wilson County Sports Authority issued bonds in 1999 for almost $26 million for public infrastructure improvements at the site. Dover Motorsports said $21 million remained outstanding, the company's letter of credit would be drawn if taxes were insufficient to pay the bond.

The Nashville news comes on the heels of last weekend's Lucas Oil Raceway races that could have been the final visits by NASCAR's number two and three divisions to that Indianapolis-area short track. Next season the Nationwide Series will join the Brickyard 400 and a Rolex Grand Am Sports Car race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in what's being billed as a "Super Weekend" at IMS.

There are also reports Montreal, an event promoted by International Speedway Corporation, will also leave the schedule next season after the Nationwide Series' visit there later this month.

According the CBS Sports, the series could return to the historic Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, where both divisions raced for years before moving to the Nashville Superspeedway. Former Nationwide Series driver Bobby Hamilton Jr. is now the promoter of the downtown track and has worked hard to resurrect racing at the storied facility.
