Controversy Flares Over Ship Named for Murtha

Navy Times: Controversy flares over ship named for Murtha

Murtha accused eight Marines of "... cold blooded murder and war crimes" in the killing of innocent Iraqis at what he referred to as "The Haditha Massacre." The fact that Murtha wore the uniform only intensifies his betrayal. No ship should ever bear his name, that designation should always be reserved for those who serve our Nation with honor and integrity.

Questions about the Ready Reserve Corps, HR 3590, Section 5210 -- Is It Obama's Civilian Security Force?

The U. S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps genesis occurred when the Act for the Relief of Sick and Disabled Seamen was signed into law by President John Adams in 1798. Click here for complete history and timeline.

Passage of "Obamacare", HR 3590 includes revisions to the responsibilities of the Commissioned Corps, as well as how medical personnel can be retained (involuntarily and under a wider array of circumstances) and centralizes power to activate and direct Corps activity to the President of the United States. Complete text of HR 3590 here. Excerpt relating to the Commissioned Corps included below. CAPS and bolding indicates new text pertaining to prior Commissioned Corps definitions and scope.

While I have no doubt that this regime would not hesitate to usurp authority and use military force against its citizens ("Never let a good crisis go to waste."), I also believe it's critically important for us to be able to articulate our concerns based upon complete facts.

Yes, the Commissioned Corps has been in existence, in one form or another, for over 200 years. And yes, the language contained within HR 3590 expands Executive Branch control over one arm of our military services. The Commissioned Corps is considered a branch of the military and members wear Navy uniforms and rank follows the Navy command structure. These are facts.

Given Obama's 2008 statement that, "We've gotta have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."... I am very concerned about the increasingly centralized power that is being concentrated within the Executive Branch.

While HR 3590 does not CREATE a Ready Reserve, Civilian Force, or Commissioned Corps, it DOES continue Obama's desire that ultimate power reside within the Executive Branch, without the checks and balances devised by our Founders and codified within our Constitution.

Section 203 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 204)
is amended to read as follows:
‘‘(1) IN GENERAL.—There shall be in the Service a commissioned
Regular Corps and a Ready Reserve Corps for service
in time of national emergency.
‘‘(2) REQUIREMENT.—All commissioned officers shall be citizens
of the United States and shall be appointed without regard
to the civil-service laws and compensated without regard to
the Classification Act of 1923, as amended.
‘‘(3) APPOINTMENT.—Commissioned officers of the Ready
Reserve Corps shall be appointed by the President and commissioned
officers of the Regular Corps shall be appointed by
the President with the advice and consent of the Senate.
‘‘(4) ACTIVE DUTY.—Commissioned officers of the Ready
Reserve Corps shall at all times be subject to call to active
duty by the Surgeon General, including active duty for the
purpose of training.
‘‘(5) WARRANT OFFICERS.—Warrant officers may be
appointed to the Service for the purpose of providing support
to the health and delivery systems maintained by the Service
and any warrant officer appointed to the Service shall be considered
for purposes of this Act and title 37, United States Code,
to be a commissioned officer within the Commissioned Corps
of the Service.


CORPS.—Effective on the date of enactment of the Patient Protection
and Affordable Care Act, all individuals classified as officers in
the Reserve Corps under this section (as such section existed on
the day before the date of enactment of such Act) and serving
on active duty shall be deemed to be commissioned officers of
the Regular Corps.
‘‘(1) PURPOSE.—The purpose of the Ready Reserve Corps
is to fulfill the need to have additional Commissioned Corps
personnel available on short notice (similar to the uniformed
service’s reserve program) to assist regular Commissioned
Corps personnel to meet both routine public health and emergency
response missions.
‘‘(2) USES.—The Ready Reserve Corps shall—
‘‘(A) participate in routine training to meet the general
and specific needs of the Commissioned Corps;
‘‘(B) be available and ready for involuntary calls to
active duty during national emergencies and public health
crises, similar to the uniformed service reserve personnel;
‘‘(C) be available for backfilling critical positions left
vacant during deployment of active duty Commissioned
Corps members, as well as for deployment to respond to
public health emergencies, both foreign and domestic; and
‘‘(D) be available for service assignment in isolated,
hardship, and medically underserved communities (as
defined in section 799B) to improve access to health services.
‘‘(d) FUNDING.—For the purpose of carrying out the duties and
responsibilities of the Commissioned Corps under this section, there
are authorized to be appropriated $5,000,000 for each of fiscal
years 2010 through 2014 for recruitment and training and
$12,500,000 for each of fiscal years 2010 through 2014 for the
Ready Reserve Corps.’’.

A Conservative Co-Opts Alinsky (And it's GREAT fun!)

GEICO Announcer Showcases His Stupidity and Our Civility

He should be working for the conservatives. If a liberal left a voice message (think Sean's I Hate Hannity Hotline), it would be profane and vulgar. When conservatives leave an opposition voicemail, their message is polite, pointed, and fact-based. I'm certain if he had received threatening and hateful voicemails... he would have used them.

Therefore -- his video has very nicely contrasted Progressives and Constitutionalists -- which is how I believe the majority of Tea Party members would self-describe.

Fmr ACORN head calls Tea Parties "bowel movement" and claims "they're coming after you" Washington Examiner

Call Bail-Out Bob Corker, R, TN -- NOW

Senator Bob Corker, R, TN, has reached out to Dodd to "help make the financial reform bill" better. We need to call his offices now and tell him to stop the madness. Even Snowe and Collins have vowed to filibuster this bill.

Corker can be the vote to keep the bill alive, or kill it.

We need to call his offices now and tell him to vote no, stop working with the democrats, and kill this bill. It doesn't matter where you live. Call NOW and use the Share buttons on this site to send this to family and friends. Congress is WILLINGLY giving up its constitutionally-mandated oversight by ceding all authority to the executive branch. This is madness.

ACTION ALERT -- Restoring the Financial Stability Act (Senate Bill 3217) Being Introduced Friday

Senate Trying to Ram Through Another Bad Bill . . . Surprised?
Here's What You Need to Know

This Friday Senate Bill 3217, also known as the Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010, introduced by Democrat Senator Chris Dodd of Connecticut, is scheduled to hit the floor of the US Senate where it must wait 72 hours before it comes up for a full vote.

CLICK HERE to read the actual 1,421 page bill.

The vast majority of Tea Party Patriots' Local Coordinators from all over the country agreed on our most recent weekly conference call that this is a bad bill and we oppose it.

In short it grants permanent, unlimited bailout authority to the Federal Reserve. It's like TARP forever without the nasty, unpopular debates and votes in Congress. Beyond that it gives the Fed the power to takeover vaguely defined "nonbank financial companies". And the Fed has the power to decide what constitutes a "nonbank financial company" on a case by case basis.

Brigade Homeland Tours Start October 1st -- Old Article -- Please follow multiple embedded links for current information

UPDATED POST: Original link was inoperative. A Google search provided this link. Article from Tuesday, September 30, 2008, Army Times. Trying to find current status now.

Cannot find any definitive news source stating that this deployment on United States soil is in effect. I do find a multitude of sites and blogs repeating the original September, 2008 story. If anyone has an update, please comment and include the source link. Suspending The Posse Comitatus Act would be chilling.

Please click here for an excellent overview of the Act, written February, 2002: The Posse Comitatus Act and Homeland Security. Will find the next reference, for current status and interpretation, enacted by President Bush after 911.

These Are My People, Americans

“There aren't a lot of African-American men at these events,” NBC News reporter Kelly O'Donnell, a white woman, told Darryl Postell, a black man at a Tea Party rally held Thursday in Washington, DC, pressing him, in an exchange she chose to include in her NBC Nightly News story, to address her prejudiced assumptions: “Have you ever felt uncomfortable?” Postell rejected her loaded premise that race must divide Americans: “No, no, these are my people, Americans.”

ALERT -- Effort Underway to CRASH and INFILTRATE the Tea Party Movement

Please visit this link -- to read about an organized effort to destroy, denigrate and debase the Tea Party Movement. They are infiltrating our meetings, giving interviews to the press, pretending they are Tea Party members, all the while exagerating claims and views in an effort to undermine our popularity with the general public.

SHARE this blog and the Crash the Tea Party link. We need to make certain everyone knows that this effort to smear American Patriots is underway. They will misspell signs, make outrageous statements, do whatever it takes to make Tea Party members look bad. We CAN stop this and make them look like the idiots they are.

We can also crash their site and make it impossible for them to recruit activists and spread their message. Vist on a regular basis. Click on CRASH at the bottom of the page. Overload their servers. Cost them bandwidth. Drive them out of operation.

We can learn from Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, too. We can use their methods against them. WE will win this fight. But we have to stay informed, share information, and work together to save our Nation from the socialists who want nothing more than to destroy our free market, free society.
