Damn it - he just made me feel warm and patriotic about Maryland...
... and I couldn't even place it on a map!
I'll be keeping an eye out for this guy.
I think you're right, metsss. I went and looked at some other youtube videos because I wanted to find out more about him and he looks Italian, just dark skinned. But it doesn't matter what his heritage is, the man is a great conservative speaker. Future leader for sure. Hope he wins his Senate race.
Here's the video that made him famous. It wasn't even a planned speech. Someone just asked him to get up and say a few words. Over 12,000 hits on Youtube so far.
I don't think the color of his skin matters. But, I want to know his belief in this country, the respect for the rule of law, and his conservative principles. That's it!
But his words are golden.
That's what matters to us.
Although "they" don't know that now, they will.
But with that Wisewoman2 he got the majority of the vote which is why we are experiencing what its like to have a Marxist in the White House.
I disagree. Obama's words were nonsense wrapped in a colorful bow. The man made empty speeches that said nothing of substance. He was able to hoodwink the voters with smooth talk.
Well Chris words can sometimes be a window into the soul of the person. I mean Barack Obama also had golden words of utopia and enlightenment, Well, we see what that got us. We have to learn to look beyond flattering words and fake made up personalities if we are to move this country forward.
Bongino speaks from the heart
obviously knows more from being on the "inside" as a SS Agent
Bongino is an Italian American
(FYI - I am as well and know of these "tings")
On Mediaite - reference is made to him being from Italian-Mediterranean descent -
I don't know what Italian-Mediterranean means - actually I do - but don't want to put my foot in my mouth) and (My anti-virus program won't allow me to open the Mediaite page fully)
My guess is that he is at least part Sicilian - which would explain his deep skin color and hair
In any event Dan seems sincere has the right message no matter what and knows how to kick donkey butt.
He would be an interesting addition to the DC scene.
Bongino is a real student of Thomas Soul and a really good speaker but I want to know more. I like that he says take the fight to them! Perfect for all of conservatism.
I think your spell checker hasn't been fortunate enought to have read any Thomas Sowell. :) Sowell is one of the all time greats so Bongino picked a good one to learn from.
He has been endorsed by Mike Lee & Joe Walsh but I didn't recognize many of the other names. I hope Jim DeMint is looking at him.
This is his postion page: http://www.bongino.com/issues.html
Sorry, about the spell checker. In an effort to hasten a response sometimes I did forget to spell Thomas Sowell's name correctly because he is certainly one of the important go to sources to decipher this liberal psychobabble. But that's what perked my interest in Mr. Bongino. anyone who cites Thomas Sowell is far ahead of the game to me. But, we must guard against being caught up in the rhetoric and good feeling like so many Obamaintes. We want, I want substantive candidates who can articulate and communicate conservatism and live those conservative values. So that when people like Linzy Graham or John McCain try to co-opt them then they get no where, kinda what I think as happened to Marco Rubio. I just have reservations which are probably unfounded.
Dan Bongino and Sarah Steelman are the next frontiers. We helped Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Mourdock, etc. - time to help these worthy folks make it too.
Give as you can.
We do this. Sometimes we can afford more than other times. When we have time, we call. It is not the amount that is important, it is the support. These candidates need to know we are out here!
Not to mention the great feeling in reading off the list of true conservatives we support to RNC and Romney staffers who call asking why our donations to the elephants have stopped. :D
I'm getting bombed by Romney letters asking for donations. I send them back to them with a note: Nominate Allen West as your VP choice and I'll start donating to your campaign.
I appreciate your work and support sDee. We can do this. :)
I respect and salute you for doing so. You are a patriot!
I'm being stubborn I guess. Romney ran the dirtiest campaign I've ever seen during the GOP Primary and frankly, I feel he was the absolute worst choice among those who ran to represent the GOP, being the architect of Obamacare and all.
I agree with your sentiment. I don't support Romney at all but I will vote for him. All my donations are going towards other races and important causes: Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Mourdock, Steelman, Bongino, etc. That way, no matter who is elected as President, the Senate and the House will keep that person under control.
God bless you.
I'm a former 45 year African American Democrat who voted for and financially supported McCain. Every time I get bombed by the Romney campaign for donations I send them money even though I am retired on a fixed income. I will do every thing in my power to keep Obama from having a second term. I strongly advise all to do the same. We have to give until it hurts in order to get all of the right people into office.
He is what the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of The United States are all about. Never retreat from what you feel is right, and always go forward. Never aloud the struggle or the obstacles you will surely face to detract you from the fight. Mr. Bongino will make an excellent senator and I hope Marylanders come out in droves to vote him into office.

Where is the Republican party political establishment?
They should be here in full force to support their candidate.
LOL! In Maryland? It's mostly non-existent. Very seldom do Republicans in MD have the common sense and charisma that this one does. They assume that people understand taxing and budgeting because so many of them work for the government. Even then many, many are just deliberately clueless.
Maryland Republicans are beginning to figure it out and it is the young ones that are. I don't know if there are enough of them yet, but this guy is going to get them. Hopefully he gets more.
The Republican leadership doesn't like having conservatives draining the swamp that they and their liberal friends have worked so hard to create.
Mr. Bongino is good enough that the Democraps are probably attacking him in some fashion every day now. I appreciate his sincerity and enthusiasm. I wish him luck in the coming election....we need more candidates like Mr. Bongino.
I invite all conservative Veterans to join us at http://Vets4Bongino.com
Add Your Name to the list.
" But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them (the people) under absolute despotism, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security." Thomas Jefferson
White Wolf 2009: Hello my friend-We Conservatives need to provide this Republic with new sentries who adhered to and abide by the very principles of the Declaration of Independence and The Constitution Of The United States.
These new guards must be firm and diligent in the Republican form of government for which our great Republic was founded on and is govern by.
They must be able to stand-up to the tyranny of the left, and their enablers in the media, in education, in government unions, in the Democratic party, and the Hollywood left.
The fight is everywhere, if you continue to run from the fight eventually you will be running for your life.
Bongino is a great motivator, He may lose the election but it won't be for lack of effort.
Only part I sort of disagree with him on is when he said that (paraphrasing)
"Virginians used to consider themselves Virginians first. Now thats not really a way to run a government."
The states are sovereign. Yes, people don't hold such strong allegiances to their states as they used to (go ask a Texan, sarcasm) and much of that is due to the ability to move quickly and freely across the nation. But then he argues that why leave if there is a fight there....exactly...it's your state, your home. You want to feds out the states business.
Other than that good speech though. And I honestly thought he was Italian and didn't realize he was black, not that it matters though.
He may be bi-racial.... Italian father and black mother. The best thing about him is that he is an American first. Remember we Conservatives don't see color, race. creed or put people into groups. We see him here as an individual who truly respects an abides by the true Republican principles of our great Republic.
One drop TRS - between black, Hispanic, Asian, and Indian....run that family tree and DNA far enough back and everyone in America is a minority. :D
My youngest came home one day in high school with a pile of papers for clubs, grants and scholarships. Someone in school (technically) determined, without talking to us, that a Cuban grandfather made her Hispanic. We marched down and told them to shove their pandering, she did not need any special help - she was an American.
This is the type of guy we need in the Senate. If we elect a GOP Majority and they follow Mitch McConnell, what will be different? NOTHING!!! We need a Conservative Majority in Congress to lead us out of the ditch, and strengthen our National Defense. Romney with the current GOP leadership will be W.REDUX!!!
When he says
"Another guy says 'we can't fix it' -- No, we can. We can fix it. That's what makes us different."
And then he goes on after that... That's when I stopped seeing some black dude giving a speech and saw something different: a real American with the courage of his convictions.
Obama and Pelosi and Reid and... who else? Jack Murtha... Maxine Waters... John Conyers... Patty Murray... ???
Can you imagine any of them saying : That's what makes us different.
And by "us", meaning: all of us.
Even those they disagree with politically.
I'm starting to feel like the future belongs to the conservative argument.
Us, as in We the People. It's meaning has been sloganized. The real and eternal battle is between us, and those who always seek govern over us instead of for us.
It is about liberty vs servitude. Not Donkey or Elephant. White or black, Hispanic or Asian. I am so tired of Americans letting themselves be sliced, diced, categorized, compartmentalized into voting blocks.
I am too. Obama is the master butcher who does the more slicing and dicing than any president in modern history.
Agree 1000%! In fact his race didn't even register with me until I read comments here. I've heard several of his speeches and never attached a "label" to him - other than "articulate R" who really gets it.
I've heard this guy speak several times and I'm always impressed!He understands the problem and will be part of the solution if elected!
This guy gives me some hope that there still is an America.
I don't know why but it seems to matter to me that he is non-white.
I am so used to having the race card applied to whites who are espousing mere common sense, that to have someone non-white call it like it is, in common sense language, means to me: ok, it's not we whites who believe in this American experiment, this America ideal, it's anyone with a courageous enough brain to think independently...
Get this guy, and other men and women, like Mia Love and Allen West, up there front and center at the convention, and, by God, I think that we just might save this country.
Great absolutely great, this guy does get it, I want to see all of us backing this guy with our support, I live in florida I am going to help him by what i can donating. And I want to have Mark Levin, sarah palin, and all the tea party behind this guy, another guy that deserves our clap and deserve our vote.
Hello fellow Hispanic Conservative and Floridian. I too will follow suit and join you and countless others to donate to his campaign and help true Conservatives get into elected offices throughout the land.
And we must make sure that Mccain and the other Rhinos in the party don't get to hijack these great candidates. All the best to you my friend.
