The Facts about Heather "Nipple" Wilson
Here are the facts on "Nipple"
I have translated below each passage - these are my opinions - take them for that.
She has close ties to the radical right wing and has won the Bush administration's high regard. Vice President Dick Cheney and President George W. Bush have spoken at fundraisers for Wilson.
As chair of the National Security Subcommittee of the House Policy Committee, Wilson contributed to shaping an increasingly militarist foreign policy of the Bush administration. The committee's February 2003 report Differentiation and Defense: An Agenda for the Nuclear Weapons Program(http://cox.house.gov/files/nuclear_report.pdf), for example, helped to push nuclear policy towards research and development of small "bunker busting" nuclear weapons, an agenda already outlined in the Bush administration's Nuclear Posture Review, which was leaked to the media in January 2002.
Sad that a former Air Force and Nato Officer does not know better
Under her leadership, the subcommittee also helped develop the House Policy Statement on Missile Defense. This policy statement suggested that the president was correct to withdraw from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Defense Treaty with the Soviet Union and endorsed the Bush administration's plans for global missile defense projects.
Need I say more? Lets spend billions on a nonexistent threat. Does that seem familiar to anyone else? Like say IRAQ.
On key votes in 2003 (as defined by the organizations themselves), Wilson voted the position of the Christian Coalition 76% of the time (92% of the time in 2002); 62% of the time shared the position of the Eagle Forum (73% in 2002); and 72% of the time for the positions of American Conservative Union (73% in 2002).
She routinely receives scores of 0 from the American Civil Liberties Union, Peace Action, and the Human Rights Campaign. In 2002 she received a 9% score from the League of Conservation Voters.
I ask you is this how you would have voted? Would you vote against civil liberties? Would you vote with the Christian Coalition
whose leader said this
"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don't have to be nice to them."--Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, January 14, 1991
Wilson receives large amounts of money from the very industries she is supposed to be regulating, especially defense contractors and the energy and natural resource industries. In the 2002 election cycle Wilson was the 6 th highest recipient of contributions from the defense industry among House members. For the 2004 election cycle she is 16 th as of February 14, 2004. Her top contributors include Lockheed Martin, the nation's largest military contractor
Fox watching the chicken house perhaps?
She is also the 18 th highest among House members for contributions from the energy and natural resources sector, and ranks 23 among all candidates who receive contributions from energy and natural resource PACs. Most of those funds come from electric utility and oil and gas-related PACs.
Well Albuquerque, pray there is no oil under the Bosque or "Nipple" will allow her pals with the energy companies into drill it
