Honoring Those Who Have Fallen

Tea Parties are Forming Throughout the World. Will HR 5175, the DISCLOSE Act, be the End of Our Freedom of Speech?

Be sure to follow the links to the Italian and Dutch Tea Party's Facebook pages. Very interesting discussion going on about unions... how they function in America and how they function in Italy. For those who claim that Social Media is not effective -- where else could you find a dialogue between citizens of two independent nations -- a dialogue that is (for now, at least) uncensored and open to all to follow, research, and contribute content.

Can you imagine? The Tea Party began in Boston, resurfaced as a result of tyranny over two centuries later, spread from coast-to-coast, and is now responsible for exporting freedom back to the very genesis of our Nation with Britain's first tea party a few weeks ago. We are NOT going away.

Click the following headline for complete article: Tea Parties are Forming Throughout the World

We are not going away, with this caveat: the democrats have introduced the DISCLOSE Act (HR 5175).

Under the DISCLOSE Act, certain incorporated entities would be restricted in how they can exercise their free speech rights. There is an exemption for some in the media sphere like newspapers, TV news, and the like. However, there is one driving force in today’s public debate that is NOT exempt. Bloggers will not have the same exemption provided to other media sources. Never mind that the Supreme Court’s opinion in the Citizens United case stated, “Differential treatment of media corporations and other corporations cannot be squared with the First Amendment.”

Click here to read the complete article at Then call, write, email and VISIT your representatives to let them know you oppose the DISCLOSE Act that will abolish freedom of speech. Unless, of course, your speech supports progressive thought, ie., socialism, marxism, obamaism. Statism.

We are losing our Nation as I blog this. At least I can still blog without fear of retribution. But for how long?

Louisiana Congressman Breaks Down During Hearing

This video of Rep Charlie Melancon (D LA) is very hard to watch, mainly because of this public servant's obvious distress and concern for his constituents, his state, and the environment. If you can watch without crying with him, you are stronger than I...

It's even harder to watch if you've seen any part of Obama's news conference yesterday. He was detached, distanced, disdainful of any impact of the spill except that which affects him personally.

To say that I am concerned for the future of our Nation is an understatement. I am also sad that Americans have elected an Alinskyite, Cloward-Piven "leader" who looks to every crisis as an opportunity to further undermine our Constitution and consolidate power in Washington.

Kevin Costner Leads Pack of 23,500 With Gulf Oil Cleanup Ideas

May 27 (Bloomberg) -- Last week in the Gulf of Mexico, actor Kevin Costner sparked headlines when he unveiled a device that appears to do a fine job of cleaning oil out of water. Some commentators seized the opportunity to make “Waterworld” jokes, but BP Plc took his machine seriously enough to be testing it this week.

“This is why Costner is so passionate about it,” said fellow actor Stephen Baldwin on the telephone. “Because it really works.” Baldwin, who is producing-directing a documentary about the oil catastrophe titled “Will to Drill,” filmed the demonstration.

Costner has spent $24 million of his own cash over the past 15 years to finance development of the device, which uses centrifugal force to spin the crude out of the water.

Estimating the size of the slick has been problematic, not least because the often-cited “5000 barrels a day” gushing from the sea floor might be low-balling the actual figure by 90,000 barrels, according to congressional testimony heard last week.

Gate Crasher Analogy

If you had tickets to a sports event, concert, Disneyland, or on an airplane, and when you got to your assigned seat, and someone else was in that seat, what would you do? You would call for a person in charge of ticket checking and have the person in your seat removed. You would be properly asked to show your ticket, and you would gladly and proudly do so, for you have bought and paid for that seat. The person in your seat would also be asked for a ticket, and they would not be able to produce one. They would be called “gate crashers” and they would be properly removed.

Now in this huge stadium called the USA we have had millions of gate crashers. We have been asking security to check for tickets and remove the gate crashers. We have been asking security to have better controls in checking at the door. We have asked security to lock the back doors. Security has failed us. They are still looking the other way. They are afraid to ask to see the tickets. Many people say there is unlimited seating, and whether there is or not, no one should be allowed in for free while the rest of us pay full price!

In section AZ, of Stadium USA, we have had enough of the failures of Security. We have decided to do our own ticket checking, and properly remove those who do not have tickets. Now it seems very strange to me that so many people in the other 49 sections, and even many in our own section do not want tickets checked, or even be asked to show their ticket! Even the head of Security is chastising us, while not doing his own job which he has sworn to do.

My own ticket has been bought and paid for so I am going to proudly show it when asked to do so. I have a right to my seat, and I want the gate crashers to be asked to show their tickets too. The only reason that I can imagine anyone objecting to being asked for their ticket is that they are in favor of gate crashing, and all of the illegal activities that go with it. Such as drug smuggling, gang wars, murder, human smuggling for profit, and many more illegal and inhumane acts that we are trying to prevent with our new legislation. Is that what I am hearing from all of the protestors such as Phoenix Mayor Gordon, US Rep. Grijalva, even President Obama? If you are not in favor of showing tickets, (proof of citizenship, passport, green card, or other legal document) when asked, as I would proudly do, then you must be condoning those illegal activities.

Sestak White House Scandal Called 'Impeachable Offense'

By Drew Zahn
© 2010 WorldNetDaily

If a Democratic member of Congress is to be believed, there's someone in the Obama administration who has committed a crime – and if the president knew about it, analysts say it could be grounds for impeachment.

"This scandal could be enormous," said Dick Morris, a former White House adviser to President Bill Clinton, on the Fox News Sean Hannity show last night. "It's Valerie Plame only 10 times bigger, because it's illegal and Joe Sestak is either lying or the White House committed a crime.

"Obviously, the offer of a significant job in the White House could not be made unless it was by Rahm Emanuel or cleared with Rahm Emanuel," he said. If the job offer was high enough that it also had Obama's apppoval, "that is a high crime and misdemeanor."

"In other words, an impeachable offense?" Hannity asked.

We are Under Assault on ALL Fronts

We're being assaulted on all fronts. While we're trying to slow down and eventually block Kagan's lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, Hillary's State Department is agreeing to a UN resolution that will restrict our Second Amendment rights. The Senate has voted to extend government grip on the financial industry, the FCC continues to push control of the Internet, while no longer referred to openly as the Fairness Doctrine, the eventual outcome will be my inability to even publish my views to this blog and your ability to access, read, and share.

As Charles Krauthammer writes below, with much more eloquent prose than I could ever aspire to, this assault is by design. An assault upon our freedoms that is promulgated by a President who hates America, hates American Exceptionalism, and by extension, I can only surmise that he hates American citizens...

...while he publicly embraces hoards of illegal immigrants who invade our country at will. But of course this President would welcome illegal immigrants; they bring their culture, language, mores, and refuse to assimilate into our American culture. Their presence simply fuels his plan to undermine the fabric of our shared national identity.

The election in November is about so much more than ousting the incumbents, returning fiscal responsibility, states rights, national security, all the freedoms enumerated and reserved to We the People by our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The election is about the survival of the United States of America.

Hyperbole? No. Fact based on fear. Fear raised by what one man has already accomplished in only 16 months in power. Not in office. Not governing, but in the words of his own spokesperson, during the transition period, but of one man RULING over America.

Please become even more active, vocal (while you still can), proseletize, preach, pray. We can make a difference but we have to start now. And we cannot let down our guard. Because while we secure one front, we lose another.

The Fruits of Weakness
By Charles Krauthammer
Friday, May 21, 2010

It is perfectly obvious that Iran's latest uranium maneuver, brokered by Brazil and Turkey, is a ruse. Iran retains more than enough enriched uranium to make a bomb. And it continues enriching at an accelerated pace and to a greater purity (20 percent). Which is why the French foreign ministry immediately declared that the trumpeted temporary shipping of some Iranian uranium to Turkey will do nothing to halt Iran's nuclear program.

It will, however, make meaningful sanctions more difficult. America's proposed Security Council resolution is already laughably weak -- no blacklisting of Iran's central bank, no sanctions against Iran's oil and gas industry, no nonconsensual inspections on the high seas. Yet Turkey and Brazil -- both current members of the Security Council -- are so opposed to sanctions that they will not even discuss the resolution. And China will now have a new excuse to weaken it further.

Obama Calls Out Riot Police in Quincy, IL April Video

I was ill when this happened and didn't get it posted. Still an important reminder of what is happening in our Nation today under the Obama Regime. Members of the Black Panther Party can physically intimidate voters in Philadelphia, SGLU members can savagely beat a black conservative outside a town hall meeting in Alton, IL, Obama supporters can assault Tea Partiers in Harry Reid's hometown of Searchlight, Nevada during a Tea Party Express III rally.

But let a few hundred peaceful citizens, of all ages, assemble outside a venue where Obama was speaking... and the SWAT team is called out to control the angry mob. I certainly hope these SWAT team members have heard of Oath Keepers and that they have joined that organization, because if they have joined Oath Keepers, then there's a very good chance that they would not fire upon peaceful American citizens if given the order.

Even if you have never taken the oath to "Uphold and defend the Constitution..." you can support Oath Keepers as a Citizen Associate Member. Click here to learn more.

We the People FOUR -- Obama ZERO

Obama campaigned for candidates in these elections... and LOST.

New Jersey: Governor; Virginia: Governor; Massachusetts: Senator; Pennsylvania: Senator.

Blanche Lincoln, Arkansas, forced into a runoff. Rand Paul, supported by Tea Party Patriots, won against a GOP candidate heavily endorsed by the entrenched republican network. Yet the main stream media still insists there is no anti-incumbent wave moving across the Nation. That this is not a barometer for November, "Turnout was low", "Candidates who switch parties seldom win their next elections", blah, blah, blah.

Click here for full "We the People" blog post from Adrianne 324.

Not sure what you can do to make a difference? A GREAT starting point would be The Miracle of America, a Study of the Constitution in the Tradition of our Founding Fathers, which will be offered June 12 and 19. Four Patriots 28560 members have attended this course and it was so exceptional we determined to purchase and offer to the public. Attendance is free and includes coffee, pastries and softdrinks during each session. (There is a small materials fee that will be collected the morning of June 12, details top tab.)

Don't miss your chance to learn more about our Constitution and our Founding Fathers. Then SHARE that knowledge with others and make a difference through education, enthusiasm, and energy!

Click here to email and reserve your space for The Miracle of America course, or call 252.259.0763 today. Space is limited.

Hypocrite in Chief -- This Time it's About Electronic Media

Obama thinks we pay too much attention to our iPods, iPads, xBoxes, etc., and not enough attention to what really matters. Except that he's addicted to his Blackberry (Crackberry) and who knows what his addiction has cost the U. S. Taxpayer to modify / increase security for him to be able to keep his Blackberry. Big security risk, due to the RIM (Research in Motion) susceptibility to tracking. Not to mention that he advertised WITHIN video games during the 2008 election. See video below. So once again it's "Do as I say (demand / dictate / decree) not as I do."

Friday, May 7, 2010 - Sen. Shelby: Financial Reform Violates Privacy - Sen. Shelby: Financial Reform Violates Privacy

Pay particular attention to the comment that, "We would fix any problems (related to unreasonable search and seizure) after it's law and if needed." What part of the Constitution do they not understand? We are losing our freedoms at an incredible pace.

This bill will also increase your costs re: credit and debit cards and give merchants more control over fee assessment. Which means your credit union or bank will suffer and will not be able to offer members the lowest fees possible. Just another "hidden" cost of the socialist agenda that is being systematically pushed down the collective throat of the American people.

Not as sinister in presentation but with as much potential for "re-education" efforts... read about Alexandria, VA pending introduction of RFID (tracking chip) recycling bins. The city claims that individuals will not be targeted for education or fines, just neighborhoods. Yeah, right. Click here for complete article.

And don't forget the government proposal to add a black box to every vehicle produced, at a cost of "only" $8 per vehicle. Easy to do now that Obama has taken over GM. While the expense to the automaker is "low" the cost to our freedom of movement and freedom of assembly is immeasurable.
