Giles Campaign Receives Unusual (Near Fair) Coverage

This is easily the best ever article written by anyone on the face of the Earth about our campaign.

Republican Chip Pickering is being reminded who his bosses are (the media). Please notice how Mees avoided the programmed ZOG Bot words of ‘racist’ and ‘Anti-Semite.‘ Instead he said ‘race candidate’ and qualified this by quoting Jim on the many non-white ‘Race Candidates’. He even wrote ‘pro-white’. This just highlights the need for Local Media and Local Groups to distribute our better written articles. Imagine if every voter in the district got these sorts of messages 5-10 times during a campaign, and daily reminders via radio free Internet transmissions.

Reform candidate Magee is “Lost In Space” and Mees made sure everyone knows it.


Pickering faces 2 opponents in Third District

By Reuben Mees

Editor’s note: This is one in a series on races that will be on the Nov. 7 ballot in Mississippi.

Energy policy is the hot topic in Mississippi’s Third District U.S. Congress race that pits five-term Rep. Chip Pickering against an independent and a Reform Party candidate.

The race, which includes independent Jim Giles of Pearl and Reform Party candidate Lamonica Magee of Foxworth, is a rematch of the 2004 race in which the Republican incumbent took about 80 percent, or 234,874 of the 293,368 total votes cast.

In that race, Giles took the second highest number of votes – 40,426 or 13.8 percent – while Magee garnered 18,068 or 6.2 percent.

Magee, 27, was not placed on the ballot this year until mid-August after an internal dispute within the state Reform Party and she said that has hampered her ability to campaign.

“I really haven’t done that much because that kind of broke my spirit about being in this race,” she said. “I’ve had such a little amount of time to let people know who I am.”

Giles, 47, an avowed race candidate, has engaged Pickering, 43, in a debate on the nation’s reliance on outside energy sources and how national lawmakers can address ways to keep fuel costs low.

As vice-chairman of the House’s Energy and Commerce Committee, Pickering has a significant role in defining the nation’s energy policy. Energy is a major issue for Giles, who lives on an organic farm and stresses non-reliance on foreign countries for energy sources.

“Over the last two years, our focus has been on energy legislation that creates a more diverse supply and abundance of fuels,” Pickering said. “We’re seeing a move toward energy independence that will create stability in the price of our fuels.”

Giles, however, said he believes gas prices – which went up significantly earlier this year before starting a more recent drop – are a reflection that the established form of government on Capitol Hill is not addressing what he sees as a looming energy crisis.

“The nature of people is not to react until there is a crisis, but I very much believe we are headed toward a crisis,” Giles said.

Energy self-reliance

With China creating more demands for petroleum each year, Giles believes Mississippians need to begin looking at ways to create their own energy, such as methanol, or wood gas, that can be made from agricultural waste and serve as a substitute for natural gas.

Pickering said those technologies are already being worked into national energy policy and Mississippi could be a home for many of the alternate fuel sources in the near future.

“We’re seeing significant investment coming into our state,” he said. “We are seeing investments in oil and gas recovery and more pipelines as well as major investment and announcements about clean coal process. We have a major ethanol refinery in Big Springs, Miss., and we should be hearing about an expansion of the Grand Gulf Nuclear plant in Port Gibson, Miss.

“Mississippi has a chance in its energy sector to see high growth and be a major producer of traditional energy, energy sources of the future and hybrid cars,” Pickering said, adding that state universities are already working with wood waste, animal waste and wastewater in developing alternate fuel sources.

But Giles said Pickering is doing little more than “rattling off a list of buzzwords” while allowing major oil companies to continue to rake in profits.

“Why not introduce a bill that funds the liquefication of coal or methanol fuel research?” he said. “They give lip service to alternative energy sources but that’s it. I would say Pickering is in the back pocket of big oil.”

Name recognition

Pickering has name recognition, a healthy political network and success dealing with Hurricane Katrina.

“I think Chip is a shoo-in,” said Jimmy Mallard of Prentiss, who is an active Democrat in Jefferson Davis County.

“I haven’t heard much about the other two candidates. Pickering is a fine young man. He’s young and energetic; he has ties with other Republicans up there. So he definitely could have my vote.”

Among his roles, Pickering serves on the Select Bipartisan Committee to Investigate the Preparation for and Response to Hurricane Katrina. He lobbied successfully for the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act legislation that offers tax incentives to businesses to spur economic development in the lower two-thirds of the state.

“Companies have been building and expanding and new businesses are coming to Mississippi because of the GO Zone legislation,” he said, noting that Congress is considering extending the deadline on the legislation an extra year for any county that had damage to more than 40 percent of its residential properties.

Giles said his pro-white stances and willingness to work for the people makes him a viable candidate.

His Web page www.rebelarmy.com carry the heading “Jim Giles for Congress: Working for Whites,” and Giles said he is not afraid of being labeled a race candidate.

“I’m a racial candidate. It’s front and center on my Web site,” he said. “Nobody ever questions the black caucus or the Hispanic caucus. Other candidates use race to their advantage, but they are never questioned or called out.”

Closing the borders

One of his major platform issues is closing the border to illegal immigrants and deporting those who live in the United States illegally. He also would like to stem the outpouring of jobs to foreign countries by raising tariffs and breaking away from national free trade agreements.

“If you have policies that encourage local energy, prevent illegal aliens and prevent exporting jobs, that’s the most pro-family values you can have,” Giles said. “There is no family if the wage-earner can’t find a good, safe, reliable job.”

Magee said if elected she would be eager to listen to the people of her district.

“I would like to be open to people’s opinion. Whatever opinion they may have, I would try to make that happen,” Magee said. “I would want to go out and see what their needs are and then focus on what I can do to help.”
