A Conservative Rising Star in Texas!

Tea Party activist Debra Medina is challenging progressive Republicans in Texas!

Debra Medina is the only Texas gubernatorial candidate who signed the 9-12 Project Contract.


Fox News' Judge Andrew Napolitano has endorsed Debra Medina as a true conservative and patriot. Debra Medina is running against big government, tax-and-spend Republicans Rick Perry and Kay Bailey Hutchison in the Texas Gubernatorial Primary. Medina's poll numbers have been steadily increasing while Governor Perry and U.S. Senator, Kay Bailey Hutchison are losing faith with primary voters.

Why the Race is Becoming National

  • As a strong leader of 10th amendment/state's rights and nullification, Medina could influence other state's to follow her leadership on issues like nullification of nationalized health care and EPA policies.
  • As a principle of individual liberty, Medina would eliminate the property tax, which could serve as a model for other states.

  • Medina is a strong advocate of 2nd amendment rights and could influence a national debate on the topic.
  • Medina is not a career politician and so her victory would scare career politicians into acting on conservative principles and personal liberty instead of delivering empty rhetoric.


Governor Perry was a former campaign manager for Al Gore before becoming a Republican. Over his 9-years as Governor, Perry increased property taxes 49%, public sector jobs by 156,000 and tripled the state's debt. Governor Perry used eminent domain to confiscate private property from Texas residents to sell to a European corporation. The property is being used to make way for toll roads as part of the Trans-Texas Corridor.

In 2007, Governor Perry took away the rights of parents by issuing an Executive Order MANDATING HPV vaccinations for ALL 11-12 year-old girls in Texas. Merck, the only manufacturer that produces the vaccine, lobbied heavily and contributed to Perry's reelection campaign.


And 17-year term U.S. Senator Hutchison voted nine times to raise the federal debt ceiling, promised to vote against bailouts but changed her mind and voted for all of them despite repeated calls from constituents opposing them. Senator Hutchison is also pro-choice candidate.

    I live in TX, have all my life, and I already voted for Medina. I don't even know a single person who didn't!!! I saw her in person also, and she was the most REAL candidate I've ever seen. The fact that she is being attacked by just about everybody or dismissed altogether just tells me she's on the right track.........people are scared and for good reason....she's one of very few who are committed to the actual constitution. I can't wait till she WINS!

    Ditto Dustin. If Perry has his way we'll be just like Cali and NY by 2012. The only reason we're better off is because there's still a bunch of true Texans here that slowed his process down. (ok not the only reason, but a main reason)

    I'm actually from Texas. I know Debra personally and I hope to God she wins. Unlike most of you I had to live under the two faced Rick Perry for the last decade and I always scoff when Beck talks about how Texas is an example of how state governments should operate. If only he knew! Debra understands the Constitution. She's honest, but she's not a truther. Don't let that sway you from a great liberty candidate.

    And the more I study, the more I realize how deep the rabbit hole goes.

    I guess I can understand why people don't want to face it. It's ugly.

    The power brokers all around the world, in virtually every country, are an awful group of psychopaths.

    What is a "9/11 truther" anyway? Does this mean people that do not fully believe the official story as presented in the media days after the attack and in the the 9/11 Commission report?

    If that's the case, this would be millions upon millions in our nation.

    And how can we fully accept the spoon fed story when the government claims we can't even find the black boxes at the World Trade Towers or the fuselage at the Pentagon?

    We should be more judicious about our foreign war policy.

    DavidS, I so agree with you. Debra Medina didn't even say she was a 9/11 truther! This is crazy.

    So instead of supporting a state sovereignty candidate who could help lead us back to the Constitution, people choose to follow complete shills like Perry and Hutchison.

    Texas ranchers know all about the Trans-Texas corridor and Perry's attempt to give away American sovereign land. So I don't have to tell them.

    Why not do a little research on your own & not believe the MSM, including our Fox News and Glenn Beck. But heck, if we're gonna listen to Beck so intently why not go back to what he's said previously and do exactly what that hypocrite said: question bodly (with open eyes), and find the answers to the questions he & Palin have both asked when it was politically expedient for them. You're almost there folks, don't go back to sleep, you're almost awake. Choose the Red Pill! (movie reference)

    ? Getting behind a 9/11 truther will simply aid the medias effort to make the Tea Party movement look like a fringe group instead of a real grassroots, American movement. Run away from this tin foil hat loon. ?

    This is the attitude that is making the Tea Party movement null and void. It's time we stand up against D.C. & question every single thing that goes on in this country where they are concerned. Do you even know who started the Tea Party movement? Hint: it wasn't the Republican party

    Yet, it isn?t the audacity to admit there are remaining questions about 9/11 when scientific polls have found that 84% of Americans do not believe the official story and at least six of the 9/11 commissioners think their own report is flawed, or worse. Instead, it is the hypocrisy of Glenn Beck and the media cretins who followed his lead in dismissing and defaming Medina outright for not immediately belittling 9/11 truthers while ignoring similar statements by GOP darling Sarah Palin.

    If Glen Beck was smarter, he would be welcoming guests like Medina. Instead he just wrote her off from his agenda. I wonder if Glen wouldn't be raising any cries if a neocon was in office. Freedom minded people usually disagree about things, but they usually have enough respect for those that differ from their opinions. Because in the end we all want freedom, not an anti-democrat in office agenda. Therefore, I'm very dissappointed with Glen's lack of support.

    Meanwhile, she never said she thought the federal government was "in on it," but that she had not enough information to go on. So, does that mean everyone who doubts the 9/11 Commission Report is a truther? I thought the 9/12 project was about doubting government. Yet for the most deadly terrorist attack on American soil ever, one for which NO government official was held accountable, we are supposed to lay supinely and let the feds piss on us with their lies?

    So, let's see, Rick Perry and Hutchinson are basically run of the mill Republicans who sold away Texas to DC (basically because they are federal government hangers on with political ambitions to get to the golden city). But since they have nothing negative to say about the federal government (because they are federal government hangers on with political ambitions) or its failures of 9/11, they are better candidates?

  • Angel R.

    Debra is a nice lady and she understands the Constitution. I was surprised by Beck's treatment. He seemed unlike himself and a bit rabid. It wasn't about fact finding. It was an unwarranted attack. I'm surprised that Beck, who is constantly being attacked as a conspiracy theorist, would try to tarnish the name of a woman who has done nothing but defend 9/12 principles. Though, he is in show business and that is his primary concern. Our primary concern is our country! I'm in for Medina.

    February 17, 2010

  • Mike D.

    17 yes, 9 maybe, 91 no. That about sums it up.

    February 17, 2010

  • Dan

    Debra did not "dance around" anything, she said that there are good arguments on both sides. All that means is that she has more education about 9/11 then the minority of Americans who believe with absolute certainty that there was no government involvement in 9/11. That is an absurd stance. If anybody wants to have a serious debate/discussion about 9/11 truth, do not hesitate to contact me. Please watch the films I posted below first so that you have some context into what we are discussing.

    February 16, 2010

  • Jacquie H.

    If she dances around the 9/11 truther issue, what else will she dance around. No one is perfect, we certainly aren't infallible. Just make sure you know where she stands. I do have a problem with someone who thinks or suspects the government was behind the 9/11 attacks.

    February 16, 2010

  • Dan

    Glenn Beck brought up Medina and truthers again in today's show and recommended that everyone research the issue for themselves. I couldn't agree more.

    Some people are intrigued with conspiracy theories. I don't know why.

    It is good to "question with boldness." But, if you ask questions, and no logic or reason is a good enough answer, then something is wrong.

    We must be more discerning than to accept a candidate who dances around the truth on the 9/11 truther issue, just because she sounds good on other issues. Her after-statement was just spin.

    Judgement trumps talking points. And Debra Medina lacks judgement, in my opinion.

    February 16, 2010

  • Debra

    To the person who suggested that some were perhaps seeing Glenn Beck as their savior, I would just like to say that if someone does what Glenn Beck says, they will follow their own assessment and not depend on any one person. He has said that many times.

    I was listening to the radio when the interview was live. I had an immediate reaction to what she said. It was visceral and a verbal "she's finished." I didn't need Glenn's assessment. It was clear to me - all trust was gone.

    Tina, Glenn is not a fault. he asked her a fair question to stop the rumors about her being a truther. He never supported the birther rumor, NEVER!!! Medina is at fault for not being able to answer the "truther" question. Listen to the interview again, or for the first time.??

    February 16, 2010

  • deb

    Glenn is not at fault. It is Medina. How many times and in how many ways did he give her the chance to denounce the "truther" rumors. She could not.

    February 16, 2010

  • deb

    not after I heard hear speak on Beck. The truther question should have been a definate "no". Her wishy washy answer is very concerning.

  • Miriam D.

    The question asked by Mr. Glenn Beck WAS A VERY SIMPLE QUESTION. It was very OBVIOUS that she HESITATE to give him a direct answer (yes or no). It make me think why she hesitate. Judge Napolitano may think carefully about his support for her.

    February 16, 2010

  • Colleen

    Well all I have left to say is the verdict will come on election day, and seeing the number of people who seem disgusted with Medina, I would bet she has absolutely no chance of winning in Texas now. That in is not going to be Beck's fault or the "haters" like me. It will be her fault. Her problem is that she can't seem to keep her story straight. I've personally had it with the Truthers, Birthers, and all the other conspiracy crackpots roaming our land.

    February 16, 2010

  • Colleen

    Yes, I concede your point. She didn't say she believed that the U.S. government was behind the attack on 9-11. She just wouldn't answer yeah or nea to the question. Instead she obfuscated and tried to rationaliz auguments in support of our EVIL government being a bunch of mass murderers. Nothing like a politician willing to take a stand on a pretty easy question. You either believe it or not. It's that simple. But you keep defending her and attacking Beck for simply asking a question.

    February 16, 2010

  • Colleen

    Are you kidding??? There is no way I would contribute one red penny to a woman who claims our government was behind the death of over 3000 Americans. What truly frightens me is that a supposedly conservative Republican would actually believe such insane nonsense. She needs to be marginalized and kept out of any public office. There are enough lunatics running our government right now, without increasing their numbers. Medina is in my mind and any sensible person's mind, a pariah now.

  • Cameron B.

    Ms. Medina proved solely by her inept handling of this situation that she is not ready for the big leagues. The chief executive of Texas is going to have to handle some tough issues, and she wasn't able to handle a simple question from a former alcoholic DJ. Question everything, but don't waste my time or your effort asking questions that have been definitively answered. The 9/11 "Truth" lunacy only tarnishes the credibility of the rest of us who share her conservative policy positions.

  • Sheila H.

    I don't worship Glenn Beck. But he has been responsible for all of this. He advises "Question with boldness". He does NOT endorse candidates. His programs are informative and well as truthful. He does his research and he questions with boldness. He questioned Medina with fairness and boldness; he did NOT "blind side her". If someone were to ask me if I was a "truther" I woud answer "Definitely not!" No hemhawing about this subject. Sheila

    Wow........is Glenn Beck our "savior" like BHO was the libs? This thing he did to her last week has taught me one thing - Glenn Beck is still just a man and isn't infallible like we all want to think. He has been an incredible source of information and started something here, but Glenn Beck doesn't make my decisions for me. Some people sound like all they are doing is following Glenn and what Glenn wants. With that kind of attitude, we are no better than the libs and deserve defeat.
