                       Joe Sullivan

Saturday, September 24, 2016


                                   Joe Sullivan  
Dear Joseph,

This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election.
In Cleveland, I urged voters, “please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket whom you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”
After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.
I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word.
Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.
Six key policy differences inform my decision. First, and most important, the Supreme Court. For anyone concerned about the Bill of Rights — free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment — the Court hangs in the balance. I have spent my professional career fighting before the Court to defend the Constitution. We are only one justice away from losing our most basic rights, and the next president will appoint as many as four new justices. We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia.”
For some time, I have been seeking greater specificity on this issue, and today the Trump campaign provided that, releasing a very strong list of potential Supreme Court nominees — including Sen. Mike Lee, who would make an extraordinary justice — and making an explicit commitment to nominate only from that list. This commitment matters, and it provides a serious reason for voters to choose to support Trump.
Second, Obamacare. The failed healthcare law is hurting millions of Americans. If Republicans hold Congress, leadership has committed to passing legislation repealing Obamacare. Clinton, we know beyond a shadow of doubt, would veto that legislation. Trump has said he would sign it.
Third, energy. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s war on coal and relentless efforts to crush the oil and gas industry. Trump has said he will reduce regulations and allow the blossoming American energy renaissance to create millions of new high-paying jobs.
Fourth, immigration. Clinton would continue and even expand President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty. Trump has promised that he would revoke those illegal executive orders.
Fifth, national security. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s willful blindness to radical Islamic terrorism. She would continue importing Middle Eastern refugees whom the FBI cannot vet to make sure they are not terrorists. Trump has promised to stop the deluge of unvetted refugees.
Sixth, Internet freedom. Clinton supports Obama’s plan to hand over control of the Internet to an international community of stakeholders, including Russia, China, and Iran. Just this week, Trump came out strongly against that plan, and in support of free speech online.
These are six vital issues where the candidates’ positions present a clear choice for the American people.
If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country.
My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that.
We also have seen, over the past few weeks and months, a Trump campaign focusing more and more on freedom — including emphasizing school choice and the power of economic growth to lift African-Americans and Hispanics to prosperity.
Finally, after eight years of a lawless Obama administration, targeting and persecuting those disfavored by the administration, fidelity to the rule of law has never been more important.
The Supreme Court will be critical in preserving the rule of law. And, if the next administration fails to honor the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then I hope that Republicans and Democrats will stand united in protecting our fundamental liberties.
Our country is in crisis. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way.
A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don’t want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him.
For liberty,
Ted Cruz

NOVEMBER 8, 2016 ?


Add to this:

1. Those Never Voters who
sit out  elections

2.  The untold tens of millions
of illegal aliens  and non citizen
refugees that  illegally register 
to vote...and vote...  in the
November 8, 2016 elections 

3. State and local  Boards of
Elections, who will not review
and verify that only American
citizens are on their current voter
rolls; and verify the U S citizenship
of any persons registering to vote
before the November 8, 2016
General Election.

Particularly, those Boards of
Elections in the so called "swing
states" of the electoral college.

Former President Reagan once
said; " trust but verify ".

State and local Boards of Elections
can avert the demise of our
Constitutional Republic by heeding
this advice before the November 8
2016 Elections.

Security, rebuilding our military, securing our 
borders, strict enforcement of our immigration
laws and rebuilding our manufacturing  base
are essential.

Restore the Rule of law ( and order) on the 
home front. Restore our Constitutional

If we are not safe, nothing else will matter!

Vote November 8, as if you life depends on
your choice(s) does.

My father, Joseph Patrick, would
say that August was the most eventful
month of his life. 

The 112th anniversary of his birth
was this past August 25.

His father. my grandfather Michael J
was born in August 1873 and died in
August 1908 in the Nevada gold mining
camp of Rhyolite on the edge of Death Valley.

Mike's brother, Black Jim, who ran a
saloon on the Anaconda Road, "Doublin
Gulch" and my grandmother Julia's
brother John, a Butte miner brought
Mike's body back from Nevada to
Butte, for burial in St Patrick's  Cemetery
and rescued grandmother Julia's and her
four surviving children, including my father
to Butte. Julia was near death with typhoid
all the children very ill with scarlet fever.

No welfare then. People took care of their

Julia's father, Sean Harrington A Buaile 
(Sean of the Field), my great grandfather
also a Butte miner, died and was buried
in St Patrick's that same August week in

Grandmother Julia , a widow, ran a boarding
house for Beara miners on the Anaconda Road
across from Black Jim's saloon, until August
1913 when she took the family back to Beara.

She, Rob, George and Liz went to the Killaugh
farm of her uncle, Paddy Owen O Sullivan

My father went to the Inchinteskin farm of
his father's aging parents, Sean Mhichil Anna
O Sullivan and Johanna O Sullivan Shearhig.

He said those years were the best of his life.

In August 1925 he left that Inchinteskin farm
and sailed for Boston,  nevermore to return.

Neighbors said his faithful dog kept a futile
vigil at the cross roads for many weeks awaiting
Dad's return. 

Uncle Rob, Dad's eldest brother, proud of being
born in the Cripple Creek, Colorado gold district
died in Long Island City, August 1974.

That was the last old time Irish wake I attended.
Old Beara relations came from Boston, Fall river
Jersey and Pennsylvania to say good bye to Rob.

Bridie (Murphy-Allihies) Rob's wife had me
sleep in Uncle Rob's bed that sweltering August
night. Thunderstorms and lightning raged all
night long.

Son, Tim's birthday is in August. My father would
always ask: "how's Tim?"

So, tonight, I will play Dad's NY Lotto numbers
in his memory.  Those numbers never came in.

But, he was a winner in his own way.

I have felt his presence very much this August
although 32  Augusts have drifted by since he
walked this earth.    

Yesterday,  son, the Colonel, called to say he had
received word that he received dna test results
that our male Y Dna terminal SNP is R- L -270
the same as Florence O Sullivan Beare
Castletownbere (1815) Philip O Sullivan Beare
b 1353  Dunboy Castle. and
Teige O Sullivan Beare b 1397.

Not suprising because we carry the  dna of
a number of O Sullivan ancestors including
the  Shearhigs, Sounish's  Ni Hurrigs, Rabachs
and Keagh's

The Shearhigs intermarried with the O Connells
of Kerry across Kenmare Bay from Coulagh.

Riobard O Dwyer says that Shearhig means "of

The O Connell's married in with the
FitzGeoffreys (Normans) who displaced the
O Sullivans from their ancient seat at Knockgraffen
Tipperary after 1192.

Geoffrey O Connell was ancestor of Dan O'Connell.

O Sullivan Mor went to Kerry. O Sullivan Beare
to the Beara Peninsula of Cork-Kerry.

When Cromwell came to Ireland he destroyed 
the old Gaelic order of West Cork.


After the fall of Dunboy Castle 1602
O Sullivans scattered the world over.
Some were transported as slaves to 
Barbados and other Caribbean Islands.

Prenders 1659 Census of Bantry-Beara
shows the population was reduced to 
about 1,300.

Many went to fight in regiments 
for Austria, Spain, Bavaria, France 
and other European countries.

Others went to sea.

The Ardea castle branch came to 
America ca 1650
Owen O Sullivan to Maine, father
of General John of the American
Revolution. Donal Cron and some
from Eyeries went to Virginia.
 Sea Captain Florence O Sullivan
brought the first ship load of Irish to
Charleston, South Carolina, by way
 of Barbados. Sullivan's Island lies
 in the harbor.

Most of the Sullivans of the Southern
states to Texas are the descendants of 
the latter two., including those of
the infamous Sullivans' Hollow Mississippi.

My mother's mtdna is U5ala,  descended
from the prehistoric hunter- gathers that
roamed Europe 35 -50,000 years ago before
during and after the ice ages.  Today less than
10 percent of this haplogroup survives among 
the populations of Europe and America.
