Welday, candidate for MI’s 9th Congressional district recently lost all my respect when he came out with the most pathetic smear campaign and ads against his opponent Rocky Raczkowski, Rocky is a recent veteran, serving 3 tours oversees against the war on terror, he’s a businessman and served 3 terms in the MI state house.

After seeing the repulsive ads I decided to come out and let the world know what I have found out about Welday. Here it goes:

After hours of research I have come to the conclusion that Paul Welday is sympathetic to the MEK. While he thinks they should be removed from the US terror list, I believe fundamentally they are radical islamists. In a letter to the Detroit Free Press, Welday explains his reason for this:

As a board member of the IPC (Iran Policy Committee) he further shows his interest and support of the Middle East and MEK. Here is an article that supports this and that he’s a board member of the IPC.

In this article he is further pushing his agenda, along with Gen Vallely who previously endorsed Welday. They are of like minds, making the endorsement easy and not meaningful.

While he was chief of staff for Joe Knollenberg in 1998, Knollenberg received contributions from the Food for Oil organization :

It was reported that in Oct 2004 Welday spoke to a Cair group. While the author of this article is credible and his source not always so, I have to rely on the author for having verified the report.

It is now said, that Cair is endorsing the building of a new Mosque at the 9/11 site. I would like to know if Welday is ok with that, too.!4C50CAC721A0BA86!4477.entry

The founder of IPC is Raymond Tanter and his CV includes the CFR (akin to the Bilderbergs and other globalist groups) and the Woodrow Wilson Institute. With connections like that, it makes me wonder where Welday might fit in there.

The IPC work looks all fine and dandy on the surface, but, what they are trying to do is the same thing our government did back with the Ayatollah Komeni and look how well that worked out. America should not be trying to work with the “lesser of two evil” factions in foreign countries to manuever things the way we want them..

During his lobbying years for Knollenberg, the following occurred:

“U.S. State Dept To Splurge on Persian Media: Iran-Syria Operations Group
On February 15, 2006, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice asked Congress “to provide $75 million in emergency funding to step up pressure on the Iranian government.” If granted, the request would increase to $85 million the 2006 budget “to promote political change inside Iran,” up from $3.5 million last year. $50 million would be used to “significantly increase Farsi broadcasts into Iran, mainly satellite television broadcasting by the federal government and broadcasts of the U.S.-funded Radio Farda.” Another $5 million “will be aimed at reaching the Iranian public through the Internet and building independent Farsi television and radio stations.” $15 million “would go to Iranian labor groups, human rights activists and other groups, generally via … groups such as the National Endowment for Democracy,” Ewen MacAskill and Julian Borger reported February 16, 2006, in The Guardian (UK).” I’ve seen Condoleezza’s name linked thru some of the other Iranian-American groups also so will have to go back and check again. The circle keeps getting bigger and smaller at the same time. Here’s where I found this

Just today I received a copy of a IRS form 990 which shows Welday as a Director for the IPC along with General Vallely and others you know of. The form shows no earnings to Welday, but indicates that he has workd for IPC 10 hours a week. This IRS form is from the year 2008.

I’m hoping that you agree with me that this is not what we are looking for in DC right now.

Who will the voters believe to be the conservative candidate? Who is looking to reap the benefits of a lobbyist in office?
Who is standing up for the voters in the 9th district and who is against them?
Paul Welday, lobbyist and businessman claims to be the conservative candidate. But when looking at the campaign finance reports, one wonders if he will really represent the voters in his district or will he be beholden to the many donors from whom he collected the majority of his contributions.
You can read and decide here for yourself.

Here are some interesting figures that show the difference between the campaigns

Andrew Raczkowski (R ) Paul Welday ®
Sector Total

Construction $1,000 vs $7,200
Energy/Nat Resource $2,300 vs $1,000
Finance/Insur/RealEst $3,000 vs $43,050
Health $2,050 vs $19,400
Lawyers & Lobbyists $1,800 vs $21,850
Transportation $1,500 vs $17,350
Misc Business $8,200 vs $11,364
Ideology/Single-Issue $29,048 vs $2,650
Other $15,050 vs $11,750

Rocky leads in contributions among the voters $29,048 to Welday's $2,650
Welday leads in the finance sectors $43,050 to Rocky's $3,950
Welday leads in the lawyers / lobbyists $21,850 to Rocky's $1,800.
All Info from

This was just a small section of the entire finance reports to give the reader an idea what is happening here. The real conservative here is Rocky Raczkowski, the guy that wants to work for us here in Michigan's 9th Congressional District. Vote Rocky. and visit here again as I will have more info coming.

Here are some more examples since my last report. While the columns are not properly lined, you will get the idea.  Rocky is the left column, Welday the right one.

Health Professionals
2050             vs  16,650
14,100          vs  10,850
Real Estate
250               vs 16,000
In spite of all those numbers, Rocky is way ahead of Welday due to the generous contributions from the people, in fact Rocky even had more contributions than Gary Peters in the 2nd quarter.

Don't let the lies, rumors and smear campaign from the Welday camp distract you. Rocky is staying focused on the issues, so am I, so should all of us. After all, we need a winner to send to Washington in November.

This is priceless. The SEIU wants to endorse one of our candidates that's running for Congress.  Tom Stillings, an Icaucus candidate is vying for Bart Stupak's seat.  Following is a copy of a letter from the SEIU, with the answer from Stillings.  Now I am really glad Icaucus endorsed him.

Michigan SEIU State Council

"Right-to-work laws make less sense as businesses become more globalized. Right-to-work is not going to stop that globalization process."

Mr. Luke Canfora

Political Director
S.E.I.U. Mi.
Dear sir:

Thank you for your solicitation. At first, I was somewhat confused at receiving it. It was then that I realized that you obviously know nothing about me.
Please allow me to enlighten you. I am your worst nightmare.
I am a firm believer in the Right to Work, and a strong proponent of Right To Work Laws. I abhor your actions in working with SENATOR ALLEN to use the force of state government to steal the hard earned dollars of those who provide care for the elderly .

Your union's thuggish tactics in support of a failed president's attempt to socialize our nation are symptomatic of a disease that true conservatives such as I will soon cure. If there is any justice left in this world, your organization and others like it, will in the words of a truly great American, "disappear into the dust bin of history.".
In short, please know that I would NEVER entertain or accept any endorsement or assistance from an organization such as yours. I hold the S.E.I.U in absolute contempt. You are a major player in an effort to destroy the character and capability of the greatest nation ever to have existed on the face of this planet.

Enjoy Marquette. Like the rest of Michigan it is truly a fabulous place this time of year, or any time for that matter.
Please be sure to say "hello" to Senator Allen for me. Since your event is the one place he can be sure I will not attend, he may take advantage of the opportunity to appear.


Tom Stillings
Candidate for Congress
Michigan 1st District

With this post I am  linking to a blog I just came across and wish for this to be widely seen and spread.  People in Michigan's 9th district, both democrats and independents have to see what Gary Peters is up to.  He won't hold townhalls, he won't return phone calls, his aides are rude, he lies about being fiscally conservative - pleeeaaase.  Now he uses stalkers with cameras in his opponents face at every event.  That's about as low as you can go.  Peters has to go.
I support Republican frontrunner Rocky Raczakowski in his endeavor to beat Peters.  Read about Rocky's plan and his bio here: http://www.rockyworksforus/

Now read about statist Gary Peters here, doesn't sound like the guy I want representing me.
