I live in the State of Oklahoma. Many States have wised up about the intrusive nature of the international body known as the United Nations and a global plan known collectively as Agenda 21 to create a UN managed policy Eco-Marxism (oft times called the Green Agenda or Global Warming), international management of food resources (which include land management) and the depopulation of the earth to maintain sustainable resources for the good of all mankinderr check that – I mean humankind.

 

Senate Energy Committee Chairman Cliff Branan appears to be a Conservative voting State Senator yet he has fallen for the propaganda that those that expose the nefarious nature of Agenda 21 are a part of a loony Right Wing fringe Conspiracy Theory:

 

Republican Sen. Cliff Branan, chairman of the Senate Energy Committee, told The Associated Press late Tuesday afternoon that he’d decided not to hear the measure at the panel’s Thursday meeting, likely killing it for this year’s legislative session.

 

Branan said the bill is based on a “fringe conspiracy” that the U.N. wants to use its Agenda 21 plan to encroach on the private property rights of Americans.

 

“I check each bill one at a time, and that was really more of a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist at all,” he told the AP in a phone interview. “It’s a fringe conspiracy-type issue that’s frankly bad public policy.” (READ ENTIRITY; Oklahoma panel won’t hear bill banning Agenda 21 plan; By Dan Holtmeyer; EnidNews.com, 4/2/2013 – Bold Emphasis Mine)

 

State Senator Branan’s predilection to ignore the international intrusion of our National Sovereignty that could lead to future intrusion that is beyond the scope Eco-Marxism led this GOP Energy Chairman to find an excuse to keep anti-Agenda 21 legislation from even being heard in his committee. Agenda 21 is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the UN trying to exert a Left Wing will against the tenets of the U.S. Constitution. A couple of examples are the UN’s international support of gun control and the UN’s agreement with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to prevent criticism of Islam yet allow Muslim nations to persecute Christians.

 

Senator Branan’s excuse came in a threatening email written by Al Gerhart of the Sooner Tea Party. This is excerpted from an Al Gerhart email sent for the Soone4 Tea Party email list:

All of my acquaintances and I are watching to see how you handle this bill.

This bill must be voted into law this year.

 

Bcc recipients: Forward your version of this email to Sen. Branan ASAP.

 

The only day the bill can move is April 4th–just a few days from now!

Al Gerhart’s answer to the Sooner Tea Party member, the Bcc list, and Senator Branan:

 

Branan,

 

Get that bill heard or I will make sure you regret not doing it. I will make you the laughing stock of the Senate if I don’t hear that this bill will be heard and passed. We will dig into your past, your family, your associates, and once we start on you there will be no end to it.

 

This is a promise.

 

Al Gerhart

Sooner Tea Party

 

I understand Gerhart’s frustration with an Oklahoma State politician that would describe himself as a Conservative not following through with legislation the Oklahoma State House already voted for in an overwhelming majority. BUT threatening political leverage based on looking for dirt to force Branan to at least pass the legislation through Committee and allow the entire Senate is reprehensible. I mean that is what Left Wing Democrats do to throw mud on Conservatives to get the mud to stick on the minds of public opinion.

 

Gerhart has attempted to explain the email by saying it was not blackmail as the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation is investigating, but rather the email was political advocacy. I am willing to give Gerhart a pass on the blackmail charge. As far as political advocacy goes Gerhart must redeem himself by standing against both Agenda 21 and Leftist style propaganda mud throwing. Gerhart stepped his advocacy by actually accusing Cliff Branan of infidelity without any proof of the accusation. Because of this I believe Al Gerhart needs to withdraw from any public face connected to the Tea Party Movement. Gerhart has provided kindling to inspire the Left to say something to the equivalent of ‘See, Tea Partiers are a part of the evil Right Wing fringe and the public cannot rely on the validity of any Tea Party Advocacy or Activism.’

 

Here is the email in its entirety from Al Gerhart:

Sooner Tea Party press release

 

Senate Leadership Ramps up Intimidation

Tactics against Tea Party

Senate Demands Blackmail Charges

Against Tea Party Leader

 

The current controversy isn’t about Senator Branan feigning concern over an email. The fight is about HB 1412; the Agenda 21 nullification bill that Senator Branan is determined to kill in the Senate Energy Committee.

 

HB 1412 passed the House on a bi partisan vote of 67 to 17.

 

Agenda 21 is about taking private property through use restrictions.

 

Agenda 21 is promoted by radical environmentalists, animal rights activists, and those with extreme social agendas.

 

Agenda 21 is about submitting to global control instead of local control.

 

They want to tell us how to live our lives and use our property.

 

Senate Leadership has taken the unprecedented step of asking the OSBI to investigate me on blackmail charges but originally their intent was to investigate me on a physical threat charge. We published the entire email thread in question on Monday in our regular newsletter and pointed out that a physical threat charge must have two points present:

 

There must be an actual physical threat that must be explicitly stated.

 

And it must be an imminent physical threat, i.e., it must set a time frame that the threat will be carried out.

 

Stymied by the facts Senate Leadership has switched tactics and is pushing the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) to investigate based upon blackmail statues.

 

The legal definition of blackmail is:

 

“verbal, written, or printed communication with the intent to extort or gain anything of value from another or to compel another to do an act against his or her will”

Political advocacy however is not blackmail. It is a core First Amendment right, legally permissible and constitutionally protected.

 

The First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

Petitioning the government in a matter pending before the legislature is a basic U.S. and Oklahoma Constitutional right. Criminal statutes cannot criminalize what is legally considered constitutionally permissible speech. If that is to be the standard then arrest every leader of the House and Senate; in particular arrest the House and Senate whips. Whips are legislative “enforcers”, who can offer inducements or threaten punishments for legislators to force them to vote according to the leadership’s agenda. Their only job is to get legislators to do things they don’t want to do.

 

The implications of Senate leadership’s actions are enormous for grassroots activists, journalists, or any citizen that works to hold politicians politically accountable. Any citizen who works for openness, transparency, and accountability of elected officials or wishes to expose corruption is now at risk. Those that think they are untouchable because they are term limited are the beneficiaries of this criminalization of First Amendment speech.

 

Yes there are those that can convolute our criminal statutes into a criminalizing free speech. They can take a blackmail criminal statute that covers those communicating in private about a private matter and twist the statute into criminalizing communications about a public matter that was communicated in a very public fashion. Blackmail has always been limited to threats on issues that are not made public; indeed once the issue has been publicized the blackmailer loses his power over the victim. Remember that the email in particular was sent not only to Senator Branan but to the individual that had copied his email to the Sooner Tea Party.

 

Remember that that individual had an extensive Bcc list and had encouraged them to forward his email. Is it not obvious that this email was intended to be spread far and wide in a most public fashion?

 

Core First Amendment speech and petitioning the government on a matter of public concern must be protected at all costs. There are those that will take issue with the Sooner Tea Party tactics. Perhaps they are not able to stomach what must be done or they might take offense of how we do things but they cannot deny that our tactics are what makes the Sooner Tea Party different, unique, and effective Politics is a battle over ideas and values that is fought mostly in individual battles or over individual legislation where both side tries to move the ball forward while defending ideas, principles, and legislation. The battle is not fought with guns and knives; it is fought with pen and paper, and with emails and phone calls. As in all battles there will be winners and losers as well as collateral damage.

 

It is impossible to draw a full and complete picture of a politician without looking at their family, friends, and associates. Digging into a politician’s background is basic political strategy that has and is being practiced by every political opponent in the state and it is practiced by every journalist in the world. There will be those individuals that are close to a politician that will pay a price for standing so close. If you don’t believe me ask Billy Carter, ask former presidential candidate John Edward’s wife, or ask former District Attorney Wes Lane about how his wife was treated.

 

The Senate’s attempt to criminalize constitutionally protected speech and to cast a chill upon citizens and grassroots activists is nothing more than an admission that they are losing control over the individual Senators. If we weren’t effective then they would not have attacked us. Political pain and embarrassment will be necessary if the citizens expect to regain control over the Senate and to regain their right to representation. Special interests want things to remain like they are but this country and this state is spiraling into uncertainty so the time for “nice” behavior is long past.

 

The political games where the House, the Senate, and the Governor take turns killing needed legislation to protect special interests is over. If they think they can use a term limited politician to kill legislation that the public supports then we will be sure that that term limited politician has that treachery attached to his name from now on. We are not afraid of the politicians or the stooges that do their bidding. We don’t want anything from them except that the public interest come first. We are here to stay and we will never back down.

 

We ask the citizens of Oklahoma to contact Senator Branan at Branan@oksenate.gov and demand that he allow HB 1412 to be heard.

 

You can call the Senate switchboard and ask for him by name at (405) 524-0126.

 

We also ask the citizens of Oklahoma to contact their own senator and ask them to fight for HB 1412 and stop Agenda 21 from stealing property rights from Oklahoma citizens.

 

This fight isn’t about rough language in an email; this fight is about the ability of Senator Branan acting on Senate leadership orders, to override the other 148 legislators to steal property rights from over three million Oklahomans.

Gerhart’s self-defense of his email and unsubstantiated accusation probably is not felony blackmail, but it definitely is dirty politics of the kind the Tea Party Movement should not utilize. Rather the Tea Party Movement should collectively condemn the Al Gerhart kind of “advocacy” whether it is down in a Conservative or Liberal-Left camp and whether it is from the GOP or the Dems. Part of the First Principles to defend the Founding Father implementation of Constitutional Law by and for the People through a Republic form of government is the maintenance of Christian honor. Political smearing especially when the smearing is a lie that cannot be proven is not honorable. As far as I know the Gerhart accusation of Branan infidelity is a baseless created rumor for the effect of defaming Branan’s character. Rather than going for a blackmail charge Branan needs to litigate against Gerhart as part of preventing this kind of political “advocacy” from darkening Tea Partiers.

 

On the other hand Oklahoma State Senator Cliff Branan is either a Conservative moron or is in the pockets of Oklahoman Establishment Republicans to advocate Agenda 21 as something good for local Oklahomans. Branan is a moron to make an unsubstantiated statement saying roughly this message:

 

The chairman of the Oklahoma Senate Energy Committee says he won’t hear a bill intending to outlaw state organizations from following suggestions from the UN’s Agenda 21 sustainability plan.

 

Republican Sen. Cliff Branan says he decided not to hear HB1412 at the Energy Committee’s Thursday meeting. He says the bill is based on a “fringe conspiracy” that the UN wants to use Agenda 21 to infringe on American’s private property rights.

 

The bill would prohibit towns or counties from implementing any part of the nonbinding, voluntary plan. It also prohibits working with UN-affiliated groups. The bill passed the House 67-17. (READ THE REST; Okla. panel won’t hear bill banning Agenda 21 plan; OKNews9; Updated: Apr 02, 2013 5:15 PM CDT)

 

I found this lengthy article that utilizes United Nations’ documentation to demonstrate that anti-Agenda 21 exposés is not the work of fringe Right Wingers. Rather exposing Agenda 21 is an imperative Conservative process to protect the Rights established by our U.S. Constitution particularly America’s Bill of Rights.

 

I am excerpting from the article entitled, “Agenda 21 Declares War On Mankind.” The article is written by Jurriaan Maessen and posted on 8/8/12 on the blog Pragmatic Witness.

*****************************

 

In the last couple of years the omnipresent force known as Agenda 21 is meeting with increasing resistance worldwide. With the rise of the alternative media, the flow of decade-long propaganda efforts is finally being hindered. As a result of rocks thrown in the stream- the once steady water flow is now exposing itself at every turn as it’s forced to bend and twist its way forward. Ironically, the UN and its affiliate accomplices have themselves to thank for the counter-effort. The internet- as well as some pretty thorough archiving on the part of these transnational bureaucracies- have allowed researchers to withdraw information directly from the lion’s den. As a result of this development, we can display a plethora of documents, often written by UN personnel and ideologues, that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is a concerted strategy in place to brainwash (there’s no other name for it) the human population of the planet into accepting Agenda 21 and its inherent depopulation proposals. Furthermore, this pool of document has revealed a plan to de-industrialize the west and to use the “green agenda” to do so. In the last few decades Agenda 21 has been UN policy, and all of its subdivisions were commanded to fall in line.

 

 

This is the word- Agenda 21: the UN strategy for redistributing the wealth accumulated by the “North” in order to create a completely “balanced” world society- under auspices of the United Nations of course and the private central banks controlling it. This can only come about by destroying the middle-class. A sudden redistribution and industrialization would not do- for the middle-class would undoubtedly rise in defiance against it. Therefore, Sachs argues for an incremental and carefully planned dissolution of the middle-class phase by phase:

 

“To be meaningful, the strategies should cover the time-span of several decades. Thirty-five to forty years seems a good compromise between the need to give enough time to the postulated transformations and the uncertainties brought about by the lengthening of the time-span. The retooling of industries, even in periods of rapid growth, requires ten to twenty years. The restructuration and the expansion of the infrastructures requires several decades and this is a crucially important sector from the point of view of environment.”

 

Then Sachs plunges into his most shocking statement:

 

“However, the single most important reason to consider the transition strategies over a minimum of thirty-five to forty years stems from the non-linearity of these strategies; they should be devised as a succession of changing priorities over time. A good illustration is provided by the population transition. In order to stabilize the populations of the South by means other than wars or epidemics, mere campaigning for birth control and distributing of contraceptives has proved fairly inefficient.”

 

Sachs argues that “an accelerated programme of social and economic development of the rural areas should be the outmost priority in the first phase of a realistic population stabilization scheme.”

 

 

The other, more sinister element of Agenda 21 is of course the concerted effort on the part of the global elite, through multilateral treaties and regulations, to not only control the populations of the world but to cull them.

 

Exhibit B: Using the Mass-Media To Cull the Overall Human Population

 

The 1973 document Mass Media, Family Planning and Development: Country Case Studies on Media Strategy is a good example of how the UN utilizes mass media to propogandize (sic) people into cutting their numbers. In this particular document we learn something about the strategies to be implemented in the eugenics-based family planning project of the future. Based on case studies in third world countries, the document proposes the creation of a “family planning communication resource unit” for every nation concerned. The reason being, so the report states, that “culturally, there is an emphasis on fertility, and the birth of children to the family is celebrated, as a symbol of prosperity and for status for women.” Because UNESCO-chieftains can’t have that, the reduction of a population should be accomplished through an elaborate media campaign, utilizing all possible avenues. Ancient tribal instincts, revolving around procreation and creativity, become suspect- as does religion and tribal mythology. The following strategies dates back from the early 1970s- but have now been formalized worldwide by Agenda 21 as enshrined within its dark articles.

 

The writers of the 1973 document mean not to destroy the human tendencies, they mean to use them to their own advantage and that of their masters. “The religion”, they say, “supports the idea that children are ‘God’s Greatest Blessing’ but can also be used to encourage the idea that every child should be given the best opportunities parents can offer. There is also a favourable attitude to economic development, a desire to raise living standards, and a desire for education. These factors are helpful in the development of a Preliminary Media Strategy.”

 

 

… The famous 1994 population conference in Cairo, held in the wake of Agenda 21?s formal kick-off, outlined some of the proposed strategies to be implemented. Then Secretary-General of the UN, Boutros Boutros-Ghali in his opening statement on the International Conference on Population and Development, stated that:

 

“I am not exaggerating when I say that not only does the future of the human society depend on this Conference but also the efficacy of the economic order of the planet on which we live.”

 

During a follow-up-meeting held in New York on December 1994, the United Nations’ participants came up with some practical solutions to the “population problem”– one of which is the integration of population issues with matters of “environment” and “human development”:

 

 

The report goes on to list these arguments with which populations worldwide should be lured into embracing modern-day eugenics as a sensible policy:

 

“The “Statement of Commitment on Population and Development by the United Nations System”, drafted by the Working Group, is divided into three sections: a general introduction stressing the commitment by the UN agencies and organizations to implement ICPD (International Conference on Population and Development); a section on the linkages between population issues and other development issues; and a concluding section calling for global partnership in addressing these interrelated issues.”

Rally Around the Sarah Palins of America

A few days ago Tea Party journalist Scottie Hughes was critical of Sarah Palin after her CPAC speech as being a rousing speaker but lacking in Conservative work to get the ball moving on a Conservative agenda to offset America’s Leftists.

 

An Open Letter to Sarah Palin

 

You are beginning to worry me. I am afraid you are losing touch with the people of whom your fame is based. I, after all, was one of your biggest supporters once. I am thrilled that you get invitations to go to NBA games, that you display your Chick-fil-A shirt, and that you go and support your daughter and her celebrity friends on Dancing with the Stars.

 

But at CPAC last week you made a rush for the exits. After you gave an inspiring speech where you said to a thrilled audience, “At a time when our country is desperate for leadership, we get instead a permanent campaign”. Instead of coming out and shaking the hands of those who you inspire, you quickly left the building without even a second glance.

 

You called out the liberal media as being unashamed, so at least you took notice of them. Not so for those of us on the right who had hoped that the woman from Wasilla, Alaska might understand our plight and give us a chance to engage one of the top names in the movement.

 

We were, to put it bluntly, disappointed. And while I wish this was a solo occurrence, unfortunately this seems to be your pattern.

 

I know we in the Tea Party movement don’t throw the best parties or live the most glamorous lives, but we are the ones who faithfully donated to the McCain campaign once you joined the ticket. We are the ones who defended you publicly when the liberal media made fun of you and when your own campaign advisors turned on you. We are the ones who add you and your family to our prayers every night at bedtime.

 

Yet it seems those in Hollywood who have made their money making you the butt of their jokes get more of your attention than the movement you helped inspire.

 

As a working mother in political journalism, I always looked to your journey as a source of inspiration. It was a testament to the fact that a woman can use her professional talents and not let her family suffer. The other side wants to make female conservatives feel like we are put in binders and READ THE REST

 

Has Hughes been looking at the same Sarah Palin I have been look at? Palin has gone to Tea Party rallies and campaign stumped for Conservative pro-Tea Party plenty! My only disappoint with Sarah Palin was her decision to not run for the Office of President. I have no doubt that decision was based on the negative attacks by Establishment Republicans. The most notable of those Establishment Republicans was (and is) Karl Rove.

 

Let’s face it. Although the electorate power base of the Republican Party are Conservatives and of those on the Right it is the grassroots oriented Tea Partiers. BUT those who pull the finance strings in the Republican Party is the GOP’s version of Pharisees that favor a more Liberal Social Conservatism and leans toward Crony Capitalism rather than little guy entrepreneurship.

 

Sarah Palin was run out of the Governorship of Alaska because State Dems and Crony Capitalist Republicans constantly were inventing ethics violations to the absurd to prevent Palin from performing her Executive duties as Governor. I believe it is a good guess that she saw the Alaskan subservience to Establishment Republicans would be amplified against on a national basis with the Leftist Palin-hating Mainstream Media propagandizing against her message by obfuscating the honor of her personal life.

 

Instead of a fractured Tea Party splitting the Tea Party with hurt feelings for not getting the personal attention a prominent Tea Partier feels she deserves, it is no reason to make unsubstantiated complaints as if it was Left Wing propaganda.

 

RATHER prominent Tea Party leadership needs to unite and find a candidate like Sarah Palin that has a national message of American Exceptionalism, Constitutional Patriotism and Judeo-Christian Morality and stand up against Dems and Establishment Republicans as well as against the activism of the MSM Left.

 

So what if such a stand is not politically correct! In today’s world who defines political correctness? It is Leftists and RINOs. It is time to change the definers of political correctness.

 

Today it is politically incorrect to think outside of the Two-Party to replace one of the two prominent political parties. As the Republicans replaced the Whigs in the 1850s to eventually elect Abraham Lincoln in 1860, it is time for the Tea Party Movement to coalesce and find a political name representative of Conservative Tea Partiers.

 

In the 1850s the Abolitionist Movement was considered a fringe grassroots movement. The Dems, MSM and Establishment Republicans consider the Tea Party to be a fringe grassroots movement that will play itself out. Establishment Republicans envision the Conservative Tea Party base will catapult the GOP back into driver’s seat of both Houses in Congress. In that envisionment Establishment Republicans intend to minimize Tea Party to stop the Leftist fringe of the Dems and bring a middle road political agenda that benefits the Center-Left socially and the Crony Capitalist corporate big business elites on the Center-Right. 

 

Just because Center-Left and Center-Right sounds like a moderate path it does not mean a beneficent path for American culture.

 

The Leftist end of the scale is godless in values and humanistic in a moral foundation for the rule of law. The far Right end of the scale exploits religion for personal ideological gain and is oppressive to be beneficent to the corporate elite; i.e. Crony Capitalism on the backs of citizens squashing the entrepreneurial spirit of the average American to carve out a self-sustaining niche in life.

 

The only path that will to make America good is the godly path in which a moral foundation is the platform for the rule of law in which the little guy gets a few shake in the midst of Crony Capitalist elites concerned with the profit margin for the Board of Directors or for the Shareholders.

 

Government by and for the people is not a top to bottom manifesto for yeomen Americans rather the people represent the rule of law that protects the rights of the unentitled (and I am not talking about government entitled but rather the wealthy entitled as the opposite of the unentitled).

 

Real justice for all is godly morality not some Leftist ideological definition of justice that robs the yeoman American of the entrepreneurial opportunity to self-sustaining wealth via hard work and good decision making. Leftist justice will keep yeoman Americans enslaved to a life leashed to whatever government agenda is defined as good for Americans even if it robs of Liberty, a godly life and the pursuit of happiness. I call the Leftist ‘good’ evil.

 

The few Sarah Palins left in America need to be rallied around and not used in political divisiveness.

Tea Party News Network Director Falsely Smears Palin

 

By Tony Lee

25 Mar 2013

Breitbart Big Government

 

In a bizarre rant–or “open letter”–at Townhall, Scottie Hughes, the news director for the Tea Party News Network, falsely accuses former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin of rushing out of this year’s CPAC and having a pattern of ignoring grassroots conservatives.

Palin Iowa

 

While Hughes’s motivation for writing such a column may only be known to her, her accusations are demonstrably false.

 

Doug McMarlin, who has been with Palin since 2008 and was with her at this year’s CPAC, was also perplexed by Hughes’s characterization of the event. Palin met with volunteers, supporters and CPAC leadership at this year’s event. Palin keynoted last year’s CPAC and was the conference’s last speaker, which allowed for her to mix with the audience following her speech.

 

This year, her slot fell on a Saturday afternoon, which meant there were scheduled speakers immediately after her remarks. It would not have been logistically possible for Palin to even greet the crowd or do talk radio hits from CPAC without causing a huge disturbance due to the crowds that would have swarmed her and disrupted the conference.

 

“Never underestimate the level the uninformed with a keyboard will go to make a point based on a lack of information,” McMarlin told Breitbart News. “Lamestream, mainstream, and no stream media, it’s unfortunate when those who lack facts lash out without regard. Governor Palin, as always, was with volunteers, supporters and fellow conservatives throughout her days at CPAC.”

 

Hughes also implied that Palin only speaks to the grassroots through the teleprompter, but this accusation again does not even pass the smell test.

 

Jason Recher, a Palin staffer who has been with Palin at nearly every event since 2008, told Breitbart News Palin never asks for a teleprompter. In fact, reporters have often said Palin improvises during her speeches, which forces reporters to pay attention to every word in order to quote her accurately.

 

“I’ve been at almost every speech she’s given since ’08 and can’t think of a time where she ever asked to use a Teleprompter,” Recher told Breitbart News. The teleprompters at CPAC were part of the stage set up used for all the speakers; it was not something Palin personally requested.

 

Hughes, with no evidence whatsoever, alleges Palin made a “rush to the exits” at this year’s CPAC, implying Palin did not have time for the grassroots.

 

Again, not true.

 

As the photos below indicate, Palin spent time after the speech meeting with volunteers.

 

In addition, Rebecca Mansour, a Palin staffer, told Breitbart News that Palin had to catch a flight immediately after her speech. “She is a very busy working mom with many family and work obligations, including raising a son with Down syndrome who has scheduled therapies,” Mansour said.

 

Finally, in what may be her most misguided and out-of-touch statement that reveals her ignorance, Hughes refers to Palin’s “pattern of this behavior.”

 

What “pattern” is Hughes referencing?

 

The hours that Palin spent with nearly everyone who wanted to speak to her after she keynoted CPAC in 2012, as can be seen in C-SPAN’s coverage of the event?

 

The hours Palin spent in the lobby at CPAC in 2012 talking to bloggers and attendees, including Townhall’s own Katie Pavlich? Hughes penned her column at Townhall, so it is worth noting that Palin spoke to that outlet at CPAC in 2012.

 

Is Hughes referencing the time Palin spent with those who came to Iowa–in inclement weather–to listen to Palin denounce crony capitalism and the permanent political class in 2011? At the end of C-SPAN’s coverage of the event, it is clear Palin is energized by grassroots conservatives, and they love her because she genuinely is one of them.

 

Was Hughes referring to Palin visiting grassroots Tea Partiers at the Machine Shed restaurant in Iowa in 2011, comfortably mingling with nearly everyone in attendance?

 

Was she referencing Palin’s appearance at the Iowa State Fair in 2011, where she talked to nearly every Iowan who approached her for nearly six hours? Where she won the respect of liberals and even mainstream media reporters who did not think highly of her for genuinely liking “common” people most politicians do not feel comfortable around?

 

If Hughes is really a part of the grassroots and not a part of an astroturf movement, she could have gone to any of these events–like thousands of grassroots Tea Partiers–and spoken to Palin. Instead, she sounds like mainstream media members who lash out at Palin solely because Palin does not speak to them whenever they wish.

 

At these events, mainstream media reporters and liberals who did not even like Palin conceded how gracious and how accessible she is and how she thrives around the normal people Hughes purportedly claims to represent. Having written about Palin for nearly four years and having spoken to people who have been at nearly every event Palin has attended during this period, I have consistently heard people comment about how accessible–and down to earth–Palin is after all of her speeches and events, which is especially noteworthy given Palin’s white-hot star power.

 

It is unclear if Hughes wants Palin to spend time with her or her organization, but grassroots Tea Partiers who truly care more about fighting for the country instead of using the Tea Party to advance whatever agenda suits their interests never ask Palin for anything except to hold politicians and the permanent political class on the left and right to account, which Palin has relentlessly done.

 

And while Hughes implies Palin does not pay attention to new media, it is worth noting that after Palin turned down Fox News’ offer to renew her contract earlier this year, the first interview Palin gave was to Breitbart News–a new media outlet.

 

While Hughes, to date, has not seemed like someone who would proverbially come to Washington claiming to change it and instead see the D.C. cesspool as a jacuzzi, her column reads like it was written by someone desperate to become a part of the permanent political class. Her comments are cribbed from remarks the elite Washington, D.C. Republicans and liberals she purportedly is against so often make to denigrate Palin because they, in their minds, think Palin somehow spurned them. They criticize Palin to get pageviews and ratings and to make a name for themselves so they can try to get 1/1000 of her star power and influence.

 

They desperately crave to get 1/1000 of the bookings Palin most often has to turn down on a daily basis.

 

They wish their children could have the opportunities to influence pop culture–and would take that chance and go toward the glistening Hollywood spotlight faster than a moth to a flame–all the while acting as if they despise the Hollywood elite while secretly craving their affirmation and wanting all of the glitz and glamour associated with them.

 

They want to use the Tea Party movement to become stars or cash out instead of fighting to elect candidates like Ted Cruz to the Senate. At CPAC, Cruz said he would not be in the Senate without Palin. Nobody mentioned Hughes, and she most likely will not have politicians knocking on her door to ask for her endorsement.

 

Hughes needs to be careful, for more columns like this will make people think Hughes may be projecting or falsely seeing in Palin what she may see in herself. Columns that smear a politician like Palin who has held both parties to account in the true spirit of the Tea Party movement will begin to “worry” conservatives and Tea Partiers. They may begin to wonder what Hughes’s intentions are for being in the Tea Party movement and whether Scottie Hughes puts herself before her country and the principles for which she purportedly fights.

GOP Establishment is Reason to Abandon Republican Party


Tea-Party-vs-Establishment toon

John R. Houk

© January 11, 2013

 

Joseph Farah of WND wrote an editorial correctly castigating Establishment Republicans. Farah informs us that Establishment Republicans would like to jettison the influence of the Tea Party Movement that has actually invigorated the GOP in the face of the Left Wing agenda of the Democratic Party now controlled by its radical Left.

 

Establishment Republicans appear to me to be the Crony Capitalists that have an affinity to the power brokers of Big Business coupled with the GOP friends of Big Business. This union of power that Establishment Republicans represent cares more about Crony Capitalist interests than the Conservative Principles of Less Government, Fair Taxation and Social Conservative Values. (Full disclosure: I am a Social Conservative of the Christian Right. Significant numbers of Tea Partiers are more concerned with Less Government and fiscal issues such as Taxation and Budget.) The Tea Party Movement roughly represents the Conservative Values I listed.

 

The Establishment Republicans are no friends of the Obama radical Leftist transformation of American government and society; however the GOP Establishment political goals are apparently to keep the status quo afloat even if it means compromise with Socialist concepts. The GOP Establishment is probably relying on cyclical politics believing the voting cycle will sway the GOP back into the majority in Congress. A GOP Congressional majority means the ability to undo any drastic Socialistic legislation that threatens Crony Capitalism. In the old give and take of status quo politics some Socialist principles gain a foothold as the give and take game between Dems and GOP Establishment continues the political tide of the ebb and flow.

 

The Tea Party Movement and the radical agenda of Obamunism is the monkey wrench that has the ability of screwing up the mechanization of status quo politics. The old status quo of Dem and Establishment Republicans will come to a termination in America’s future eventually. The real choice for Americans will be Obama Transformationism (‘Change’) or Tea Party Conservatism desiring to retain the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution. 

 

Joseph Farah wants the grassroots Tea Party organizations to unite and influence Republicans away from Establishment control and bring the GOP under Tea Party Conservative Principles control.

 

Friends – that will never happen. The Establishment Republicans control the purse strings of the Republican Party. That became evident to me in the 2012 election cycle when the GOP Establishment rooted and confirmed Establishment Republican Mitt Romney as the GOP nominee for President. Romney was and is a status quo politician that tried to pretend to have Conservative credential disowning many Left Wing actions of his past.

 

I was miserable when Romney won the nomination. And yet I voted for Romney over Obama under one reason: ANYBODY BUT OBAMA. Clearly Romney ran a status quo campaign hoping that people like me would vote for him. If Romney was willing to take a more politically incorrect campaign to Obama I believe Romney would have won.

 

The Romney loss has made it clear to me that the Republican Party managed by the Establishment will only use the Tea Party Movement and Conservative Principles to trick us into voting Republican.

 

Farah would have us shore up the GOP.

 

I would have you abandon the GOP and form a Conservative political Party that unites the diverse Tea Party organizations into a monolithic political bloc. A clear choice for Americans is the only way voters can take responsibility for those who are elected. If the voters continue to support Obamunism by electing Socialist minded Lefties as President and Left Wing Congressman and Senators then America deserves the consequences the lack of Liberty, the lack of Free Markets and the creation of a Secular Humanist society that eschews Judea-Christian Values and embraces Moral Relativity turning America into an immoral Mordor (Mordor etymology – inspiration) that will eventually destroy the USA from within.

Thinking about Armageddon

Exclusive: Joseph Farah likens ultimate battle to fight against GOP establishment in D.C.

 

By Joseph Farah

January 10, 2013

WND

 

JERUSALEM – Being present here so close to the Valley of Megiddo, where the battle of Armageddon will be waged, makes one thing about matters of an apocalyptic nature.

 

It was just last month that the world was supposed to end, according to the Mayan calendar.

 

Then immediately following all anyone heard about in the U.S. was the “fiscal cliff” – with even more media hysteria.

 

The idea perpetuated by the press was that if taxes weren’t raised and the debt limit wasn’t hiked, the world as we know it would end.

 

Why?

 

Because the government would no longer be able to spend more than $1 trillion than it takes in every year for programs that are mostly unconstitutional, wasteful, useless and counterproductive anyway.

 

It would be easy to sit here so far away from Washington and point the finger at Barack Obama, Democrats and the media.

 

But, honestly, this time, that wouldn’t be fair and honest.

 

They’re simply doing what we should expect them to do, what they always do – expanding government by any means necessary.

 

It’s the other guys, the establishment Republicans, the ones who have as much contempt for the people, the ones who loathe the tea-party movement that gave them control of the House, that are responsible for pushing us inevitably toward a real fiscal cliff – economic and moral bankruptcy.

 

I’ve been chronicling this betrayal since January 2011, in case you haven’t been paying attention. I was the guy who created the “No More Red Ink” campaign back then to pressure Republican House members not to increase the debt limit – or, at the very least, to use their power to force major spending cuts.

 

Despite deluging them with more than a million red letters urging them to stand up for the Constitution, for doing the right thing, for the campaign promises they made, only 22 courageous Republican House members refused to go along with the scam authored by House Speaker John Boehner with the collusion of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

 

Don’t miss the opportunity of a lifetime to tour Israel with Joseph Farah and messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of the No. 1 best-selling Christian book of 2012, “The Harbinger.”

 

It was in July of 2011 that the inevitability of tax raises and borrowing as far as the eye can see was etched in stone in a deal cut between the establishment Republicans and the Democrats.

 

Boehner told House Republicans to “get their a– in line” and vote for bill that cut no spending and gave Obama all the cash he needed to start implementing his national health-care scheme, increase food stamp payments exponentially to buy more votes and to pay off his friends with stimulus cash. McConnell’s collusion allowed the debt ceiling to be lifted without any member of Congress taking responsibility to vote on it.

 

In the battle of Armageddon, as I read it, there are actually good guys as well as bad guys. The good guys win.

 

With the economic apocalypse shaping up in the U.S., it’s hard to find the good guys. They are extremely scarce. It seems like almost everyone in Washington actually thinks business as usual is somehow sustainable.

 

It’s not.

 

That’s why we need more Ron Pauls and Michele Bachmanns in Washington. That’s why we need more Rand Pauls and Jim DeMints. That’s why we need the tea party to awaken from its slumber with more determination and commitment than ever before. That’s why we need to start saying no to Washington – and meaning it. That’s why we need to exert some real force and be willing to sacrifice our time if we are to save the next generation from tyranny and poverty that Americans haven’t known since the Great Depression.

 

If you are as angry as I am about Republican establishment ineptitude and corruption, you can start by letting all House Republicans know. It’s time to take sides – either with jokers like Boehner or with the people and the Constitution. You can start by putting them on notice by becoming part of the “No More Red Ink” campaign.

Who subverted tea-party movement?


Drink Tea Not Koolaide

I don’t know about you but I thought Election 2012 reeked of the Republican Establishment screwing Conservative causes in favor of a status quo political correctness. Because of the GOP leadership I have decided not to be a Republican anymore. Joseph Farah has written an editorial that the Establishment within the GOP did its utmost to subvert the Tea Party Movement. Farah singles out former Congressman Dick Armey (pro-Dick and anti-Dick) as the subverter-in-chief working within the Tea Party organization Freedom Works.

 

If Dick Armey is a symptom of undermining the Tea Party Movement under the inspiration of the Republican Establishment then it is time to ditch the GOP and form another political party under Conservative leadership.

Who subverted tea-party movement?

Exclusive: Joseph Farah notes accuracy of his 2010 prediction about Dick Armey

 

By Joseph Farah

January 1, 2013

WND

 

It gives me no solace or comfort or even pride to see my worst political prognostications come to fruition.

 

But beginning in mid-2010, in a series of more than 10 commentaries, I began warning the tea-party movement that there was a covert operation under way by establishment Republican hacks to co-opt the grass-roots movement and lead it astray for the personal political gain of party insiders – including one in particular by the name of Dick Armey.

 

Recently, of course, you’ve probably heard or read the news that Dick Armey was purged by his organization FreedomWorks, which apparently learned the truth too late or couldn’t see how the group’s own leader was responsible for destroying the effectiveness and focus of the most powerful and important conservative political movement since Ronald Reagan’s campaign in 1980.

 

The full story of what Armey was up to in 2010 and the destructiveness of what he wrought on the tea-party movement is now out there for all to see. The truth is the whole situation was even worse than I could have foreseen and the $8 million payoff Armey got to leave FreedomWorks.

 

Last month, two FreedomWorks board members and allies of Armey sent Matt Kibbe, the president of the organization, a letter telling him they had received “allegations of wrongdoing by the organization or its employees.” They told Kibbe the board had retained attorneys to conduct an independent investigation of the allegations and ordered Kibbe, previously booted off the board, to cooperate and ensure no records were “destroyed, deleted, modified or otherwise tampered with.”

 

Kibbe responded to the Dec. 12 letter with a blistering memo exposing, from his point of view, how Republican insiders attempted to take over FreedomWorks under Armey’s watch. Kibbe portrayed himself as the true tea-party champion and Armey as the leader of the Republican establishment shills and said that the investigation was payback for battling Armey.

 

“As it turns out, the fight for lower taxes, less government and more freedom is all well and good until it is Republicans – ‘old friends’ – that are the ones needing to be held to account,” Kibbe wrote. “It is our sense that the irresponsible acts of the so-called Trustees of FreedomWorks – Dick Armey, C. Boyden Gray, and James C. Burnley – on Sept. 4, and their continued hostile acts today, are all about retribution for our willingness to take a strictly nonpartisan approach to politics, our willingness to hold both Republicans and Democrats to the standards set out by our freedom philosophy and the clear limits on government power delineated in our U.S. Constitution.”

 

In his memo, Kibbe presents a strong case against Armey for his primary support of Republican establishment candidates over genuine tea-party candidates.

 

But Kibbe worked closely with Armey through all the intrigue and FreedomWorks’ clear efforts to control the tea-party movement. They even wrote a book together in 2010 called “Give Us Liberty,” a book that reflected their desire to see the tea-party movement limit itself to what I called in my competing book, “The Tea Party Manifesto,” materialistic issues. (Because this book is so important to understanding the issues behind the leadership grab of the tea-party movement by Washington insiders and the throwing of the 2012 election, I have arranged to make it available for only 99 cents plus shipping.)

 

For those who want only the quick-and-dirty version of what I saw coming in 2010, here it is:

 

Armey was at the forefront of an insidious plot to “rein in” the tea-party movement, to constrain it to exclusively economic grievances defined in ludicrously narrow terms. For instance, tea-party members always overwhelmingly want to see immigration laws enforced and the border secured. But Dick Armey and FreedomWorks insisted that tea-party activists who work with them avoid this issue like the plague.

 

What Armey did after the 2010 mid-term elections was seek to limit the tea-party’s activism, effectiveness and longevity – to cut the very heart and soul out of a movement he had nothing to do with starting. He was the proverbial politician who attempted to jump in front of the historic parade the tea-party movement represented. It was not his movement, and he had not earned the right to dictate the rules of engagement and assert leadership over it.

 

Armey and FreedomWorks claimed they wanted to build a “big tent” by limiting the tea-party movement’s agenda to purely and exclusively economic issues defined in the narrowest imaginable terms. This is what the country-club Republicans have been trying to do since the days of Nelson Rockefeller and through George Bush I and II.

 

It doesn’t work. You can’t build a big tent by excluding people and issues about which they are passionate. It is completely counterintuitive, and it has been proven wrong time and time again. Needless to say, it happened again in 2012.

 

And, of course, as I wrote in “The Tea Party Manifesto,” there’s a bigger problem than that.

 

If America has problems other than economic, how do you address them with a purely economic program?

 

Obviously, you can’t.

 

It is not too late for the tea-party movement to recognize the con job that has been played on them – and to return to the grass-roots effectiveness it experienced in 2010. In fact, it is a necessity if America is to survive as we have known it in the next four years.

 

I would like to see the tea-party movement address all of the problems besetting our country. I would like to see this movement have long legs. Rather than constrain the tea-party movement and keep it in a box, I want to throw gasoline on this brushfire that began in 2010 and see it rage across the country in the form of vigilant citizen activism that will clean up our political system and keep it clean – returning America to the rule of law and the will of the people and the formula that made it the world’s greatest experiment in liberty.

 

As I said, I have written much about this topic. I saw all this coming. I actually publicly called for dumping Dick Armey from the tea-party movement in November of 2010. While the political intrigue continues at FreedomWorks, it is essential for the tea-party activists across this country to familiarize themselves with big picture of how to save America from going off not only the fiscal cliff but the moral cliff as well.

 

Editor’s note: Below are the top 10 previous columns by Joseph Farah about Armey, FreedomWorks and the tea-party movement beginning even before the 2010 elections:

 

Big-tent Republicanism and tea party

 

 

Don’t constrain tea-party movement!

 

 

Libertarianism is morally bankrupt

 

 

GOProud is not the tea party

 

 

Dump Dick Armey from tea party

 

 

What is America’s greatest hope?

 

 

Dick Armey is not the tea party

 

 

The next chairman of the RNC

 

 

Why you can’t trust ‘fiscal conservatives’

Egad! Romney Hires a Homosexual Activist


Vote the Bible

John R. Houk

© May 1, 2012

 

My son Adam is an absolutist when it comes to voting. He wants a candidate that meets the values of Conservatives and Biblical Morality. If the person fails that litmus test he is not worth voting for.

 

Now here is the difficulty Conservatives like me run into with that litmus test. The opposing candidate in Barack Hussein Obama is openly pro-homosexual activism, pro-Moral Relativity, pro-abortion, anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian State, pro-Socialism; anti-Christian and many other disagreeable pros and antis that drive me crazy. President Barack Hussein Obama is a disastrous President for the future of America in the realm of Biblical Values, Free Market Capitalism and Constitutional Liberty.

 

It is quite evident that Mitt Romney is going to be the GOP Nominee for President for 2012. The social values of Romney are questionable as evidenced by not actively fighting against homosexual activism and against abortion while he was Governor of Massachusetts. The institution of Romneycare places a dent in his Conservative ethics.

 

During the Primary stage of Romney’s campaign he went out of his way to assuage Conservatives about these huge question marks. It is apparent now that some true colors of Romney are being displayed by hiring homosexual activist Richard Grenell as a Foreign Policy and National Security advisor.

 

It is idiot moves like this that are going to keep away Conservative Republicans away from the polls on Election Day 11/6/12. In such a scenario the horror of reelecting Barack Hussein Obama looms.

 

My son Adam is so disaffected by having Romney give a nod to the homosexual lifestyle by hiring Grenell that he believes Conservative Family/Biblical Values should utilize the power of a Write-in Candidate. This would result in the same horror as Conservatives not going to the polls – Obama gets elected.

 

Frankly I am so teed off over Romney’s total disregard for Family/Biblical Values Conservatives I am tempted to join my son and write in a Candidate who undoubtedly may or may not be actively running. I am guessing from past emails my son would advocate abandoning the Republican Party and begin looking at the very small Conservative Party which posits all the Conservative principles from fiscal responsibility, to limited government, tax reform, Family/Biblical Values and so on.

 

At this point I was going to display what the Conservative Party stands for. Then I discovered that there are two Conservative Parties vying to replace the GOP. I am going to lead off with the Conservative Party USA and then follow up with the American Conservative Party.

___________________________

 

 

About The Conservative Party USA

 

The Conservative Party USA will rectify the consistent failures and corruption of the current two-party system.  CP-USA will impose fiscal discipline, restrain the reach of the federal government as outlined in the Constitution and defend America’s traditional family values.

 

The American two-party system is broken. It has become a system of elite political insiders who only serve the special interest groups that help keep them in control.  Some elites call themselves “Democrats” while others call themselves “Republicans”.

The elite of the two major parties continue to fail America based on our spiraling national debt, trillion-dollar annual budget deficits, off-budget Earmarks, escalating illegal immigration, weakening Dollar and loss of traditional American values.  They are stealing America’s future because they are only dedicated to getting re-elected.

 

The Conservative Party USA is emerging as America’s real “Second Party” because true conservatives, Independents and Tea Party activists will soon relegate the GOP into political irrelevance.  Republi-Dems are two sides of the same losing coin.

 

The Tea Party is mainly united by fiscal conservatism; the desire to get Congress to follow the Constitution and spend the people’s money wisely.  However, the Tea Party is not united by a socially conservative agenda because its membership consists of a broad spectrum of political views.

 

Who will address important social issues consistent with traditional American values beyond the fiscal and monetary problems facing America today?

 

Critical moral, social and Constitutional issues must also be considered.  These include: Illegal Immigration; Welfare; Gay Marriage; Gays serving openly in the Military; Abortion; Religious Freedom; Saving American Jobs; The War on Drugs; Maintaining a strong Military; Affirming States’ Rights; Clarifying the 14thAmendment on “Anchor Babies”; Stopping the Discrimination of Affirmative Action, to name a few.

 

America will not survive if it abandons its traditional values for the sake of solving only fiscal problems… we assert that both traditional values and fiscal solutions are equally important.

 

What happens to the Tea Party and like-minded groups beyond budget and fiscal issues?

 

The Conservative Party USA is the next evolutionary step of the Tea Party because it combines fiscal restraint with traditional American values that are outlined in a clear Platform and is managed by a strong leadership team that has a unified, long-term vision for America.

 

Conservative Party USA is the answer to those critical questions and Project Mayberry® is the key!

Principles

Last Updated on Tuesday, 16 August 2011 18:15

 

The ACP Creed

 

WE BELIEVE:

 

·         Unalienable rights to life and liberty are given to us by our Creator; these rights exist separate from, and are superior to, government.

 

·         Individuals are responsible for securing the blessings of liberty through the exercise of their rights.

 

·         The individual is sovereign over one’s person; their labors constitute a foundation for private property that is not subject to the demands of others.

 

·         Governments are formed by the will of the people to secure and defend human liberty.

 

·         Law exists to support liberty and mediate disputes where conduct of one infringes upon the rights of another.

 

·         The armed forces and law enforcement exist to bolster private defense, not supplant it.

 

·         The American Experiment was born out of these beliefs and it has resulted in a bountiful gain for the human condition.

 

FOUNDATION:

 

From this Foundation, all principles flow:

 

The individual is sovereign

 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

 

Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just limited powers from the consent of the governed

 

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity do ordain and establish the Constitution for the United States of America.” What does this mean? Simply put, that the formation of a legitimate government can only occur when the citizens themselves choose to surrender a portion of their inherent authority. The citizens may chose to give, but the government cannot chose to take (or keep) authority against the wishes of its citizenry.”

 

Principles of the American Conservative Party

 

From our Principles, our Policy Issues will be derived:

 

FEDERALISM AND SOCIAL ISSUES

 

We reject the practice of using Government powers for any purpose of social engineering, and we uphold the principle that the individual is sovereign; where social conduct involves personal choices, the People are best served when those choices are embraced and defended at the family and community level.

 

AUTHORITY OF GOVERNMENT

 

·         The citizens of the United States are the sole source of power and life of the United States Government. All powers and authority not explicitly given by the citizens to their representatives remain with the states or the people thereof.

 

·         The United States Government has the authority and obligation to protect its citizens and their liberties from all actual and perceived threats regardless of the source, location or scope.

 

LIMITATIONS ON GOVERNMENT

 

·         The federal legislature may make no law that abridges or limits the Constitutional rights of an individual.

 

·         No state may abridge a citizen’s right to life, liberty, or property without due process of law.

 

·         Property currently owned or controlled by the Government is held in Trust for the citizens

 

·         Regardless of compensation, no property shall be forcibly taken by government for private use or profit.

 

CITIZENSHIP

 

·         Any child, born of a citizen, shall have all the legal rights of a citizen born or naturalized into the United States.

 

·         Persons who are not citizens or resident aliens of the United States have no right to petition or benefit from any agency of the government except for petition of entry or asylum.

 

·         A child born in the United States to non-citizens is not a citizen.

 

CITIZEN RESPONSIBILITIES

 

·         Each adult citizen is responsible for the health, education and welfare of himself or herself and their family.

 

·         No adult citizen may call on the resources of another citizen or group of citizens without their explicit, expressed consent.

 

·         No citizen or group of citizens, by expression of any character or physical trait, may call upon the resources, nor abridge the rights, of another citizen or group of citizens without their explicit, expressed consent.

 

·         It is the responsibility of every citizen to participate in the political process.

Both of these Conservative Parties appear to be good alternatives if the GOP fails to live up to the base that will enable the return of a majority Republican Congress. I get the impression the Conservative Party USA is the better of the two so far because they seem to have a greater affinity for Christianity and an appreciation of the Social Conservative portion of the Tea Party Movement.

 

Much to the chagrin of my son I am still voting for Romney for President. Obama is that bad for America. However, if Romney goes out of his way to support the homosexual agenda and the murdering abortionist crowd, it will be the last time I vote Republican even if it means a Socialist Dem takes Office. Perhaps it will take the evil of Socialism to vote for a Conservative political party to get Conservative voters to leave the GOP if it fails this time around.

 

Here is the link my son pointed to me which is an article by Bryan Fischer at Renew America about Romney hiring homosexual activist Richard Grenell.

 

*****UPDATE AFTER COMPLETING MY THOUGHTS*****

 

Richard Grenell has resigned as Romney’s advisor for Foreign Policy and National Security. The Washington Post headline runs as follows: EXCLUSIVE: Richard Grenell hounded from Romney campaign by anti-gay conservatives.

 

It is not surprising that WaPo uses an invective like “hounded” in reference to Conservatives. It is my opinion I am not the only Conservative that was a bit miffed that Romney was affirming the homosexual agenda by hiring a homosexual activist like Grenell:

 

Richard Grenell, the openly gay spokesman recently hired to sharpen the foreign policy message of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, has resigned in the wake of a full-court press by anti-gay conservatives.

 

In a statement obtained by Right Turn, Grenell says:

 

I have decided to resign from the Romney campaign as the Foreign Policy and National Security Spokesman. While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obama’s foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign. I want to thank Governor Romney for his belief in me and my abilities and his clear message to me that being openly gay was a non-issue for him and his team.

 

According to sources familiar with the situation, Grenell decided to resign after being kept under wraps during a time when national security issues, including the president’s ad concerning Osama bin Laden, had emerged front and center in the campaign.

 

Pieces in two conservative publications, the National Review and Daily Caller, reflected the uproar by some social conservatives over the appointment. (WaPo article by Jennifer Rubin; 5/1/12 03:00 PM ET)

 

I am still cross posting the Renew America article for it is worth the read.

Thoughts on Michele Bachmann


Michele Bachmann

John R. Houk

© January 6, 2012

 

I was a Bachmann supporter. She represented EVERYTHING I liked about candidate. Bachmann is a Conservative, she is a Tea Party Conservative, she is a Social Conservative, she is Pro-Israel and she understands that American Exceptionalism requires a strong military.

 

I suspect if the various Tea Party organizations across the nation would have been more vocal to support the only candidate that directly associated herself as a Tea Party Conservative, her numbers in Iowa would have been sufficient to keep her in the campaign for her to hear the voice of Conservative States. I am talking Conservative States that the Tea Party Movement was very effective in electing Tea Party candidates to Federal, State and Local Offices.

 

On Wednesday Michele Bachmann ended her campaign with a very awesome speech that all should check out!

I pray the air kicked out of Bachmann’s Presidential campaign does not draw her to conclude to also not run for re-election in her District in Minnesota.

Occupy Thugs and Tea Party Citizens

Remember when Democrats, Left Wing pundits, MSM and race card organizations like the NAACP accused the Tea Party Movement of being a combination of Right Wing Extremists and racists bent toward a path of guns and violence? Let’s compare the real Tea Party Movement to the Occupy Mobs that are spreading across America.

 

Democrats

 

 

In a video circulated Tuesday by conservative commentator Glen Beck’s website The Blaze, Indiana Rep. Andre Carson said the Tea Party was preventing African Americans from making progress toward equality.

 

“This is the effort that we are seeing of Jim Crow. Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now with this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me… hanging on a tree,” Carson said at a Aug. 22 Congressional Black Caucus Job Tour even in Miami.

 

 

Another Congressional Black Caucus member Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., also had harsh words for the Tea Party last week when she said members of the movement could “go straight to hell.”

 

“I’m not afraid of anybody. This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. As far as I’m concerned the Tea Party can go straight to hell,” Waters said at an Aug. 20 “Kitchen Table Summit” which she hosted with her fellow California Democrats Rep. Karen Bass and Rep. Laura Richardson. (Rep. Andre Carson: Tea Party Wants To See Blacks ‘Hanging On A Tree’; By Amy Bingham; ABC New – The Note, Aug 31, 2011 10:51am)

 

Left Wing Pundits

 

 

We also held the belief that the Tea Party movement was inherently dishonest, and certainly dangerous. One need only look at their signs and their rhetoric at their so called rallies. Or the town hall meetings where they set the standard for thuggish behavior and mob mentality intended to intimidate and threaten. Or how they attack those they disagree with, like the man with Parkinsons at a healthcare reform rally or the woman that three men from the Tea Party beat up at a Rand Paul political rally.

 

Given the movement’s evil and hateful foundation, we also thought the movement would implode on itself at some point and for any number of reasons. Perhaps the abject greed that is its foundation would cause it to feed on the very people who supported it. Or maybe the core of hatred that sustains it would result in internacine warfare. Or with so many Republican ‘Tea Party’ candidates having taken advantage of the limited attention span of the American voter and getting elected, America would finally see the despicable character of the individuals who expediently rode the anger and vitriol of the movement for their own personal, and the GOP’s gain, like dead-beat dad Joe Walsh of Illinois, and realize they had been duped into supporting people that represented a movement that could care less about effective governance, or the well being of the United States of America as a whole.

 

 

Of course, this does not mean that the Tea Party is gone, or that it won’t still pose a threat to fair minded and patriotic Americans. In the months ahead, we can expect to see the movement become more angry, more volatile, and even more dangerous as it desperately seeks to remain relevant. However, as the recent polling has shown, it is far, far too late for the Tea Party Movement to save itself or the hateful doctrine it embraces. It was always a movement founded on lies, disinformation and fear, and such a movement cannot, and will not survive in the greatest country on earth. (The Tea Party doctrine of hate makes the movement less popular then Gays and Muslims!; By E. Gray; Don’t Tea on Me, September 6, 2011)

 

Mainstream Media

 

 

And while the public image of the Tea Party focuses on a desire to shrink government, concern over big government is hardly the only or even the most important predictor of Tea Party support among voters.

 

So what do Tea Partiers have in common? They are overwhelmingly white, but even compared to other white Republicans, they had a low regard for immigrants and blacks long before Barack Obama was president, and they still do.

 

More important, they were disproportionately social conservatives in 2006 — opposing abortion, for example — and still are today. Next to being a Republican, the strongest predictor of being a Tea Party supporter today was a desire, back in 2006, to see religion play a prominent role in politics. And Tea Partiers continue to hold these views: they seek “deeply religious” elected officials, approve of religious leaders’ engaging in politics and want religion brought into political debates. The Tea Party’s generals may say their overriding concern is a smaller government, but not their rank and file, who are more concerned about putting God in government.

 

This inclination among the Tea Party faithful to mix religion and politics explains their support for Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. Their appeal to Tea Partiers lies less in what they say about the budget or taxes, and more in their overt use of religious language and imagery, including Mrs. Bachmann’s lengthy prayers at campaign stops and Mr. Perry’s prayer rally in Houston.

 

Yet it is precisely this infusion of religion into politics that most Americans increasingly oppose. While over the last five years Americans have become slightly more conservative economically, they have swung even further in opposition to mingling religion and politics. It thus makes sense that the Tea Party ranks alongside the Christian Right in unpopularity.

 

On everything but the size of government, Tea Party supporters are increasingly out of step with most Americans, even many Republicans. Indeed, at the opposite end of the ideological spectrum, today’s Tea Party parallels the anti-Vietnam War movement which rallied behind George S. McGovern in 1972. The McGovernite activists brought energy, but also stridency, to the Democratic Party — repelling moderate voters and damaging the Democratic brand for a generation. By embracing the Tea Party, Republicans risk repeating history. (Crashing the Tea Party; By DAVID E. CAMPBELL and ROBERT D. PUTNAM; New York Times – The Opinion Pages, August 16, 2011)

 

Left Wing – Race Card Organizations

 

“A watched tea pot never boils.”

 

That’s the rallying slogan of a new online “watchdog” site launched by the NAACP, in conjunction with partners ThinkProgress, George Soros’ Media Matters and a group called New Left Media.  TeaPartyTracker.org advertises itself as a site that “monitors racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement.”

 

According to the Daily Caller, the NAACP reached out to the various groups for help in compiling information implicating the Tea Party:

 

Media Matters and Think Progress representatives said their content and reporting haven’t changed and that the NAACP approached their organizations seeking only to republish select content they’ve produced. The NAACP’s new teapartytracker.org is aimed specifically at highlighting “racism” in the Tea Party.

 

New Left Media, the duo of Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll who use a “Trojan trick” to get interviews with Tea Partiers, is also a partner organization on the new site.

 

As for what Media Matters, New Left Media, Think Progress and the NAACP plan to do with teapartytracker.org, Think Progress editor Faiz Shakir and Media Matters Vice President for Research and Communications Ari Rabin-Havt said the NAACP contacted them about sharing content related to the Tea Party.

 

Tea Partiers beware — the NAACP is watching you, and they now have a website where people can post “evidence” of racism and extremism.  But despite Andrew Breitbart’s offer of a sizable reward for solid evidence, there remains none. (NAACP Joins Left-Wing Groups to ‘Monitor’ Tea Party Groups; By Meredith Jessup; The Blaze, September 3, 2010 at 1:39am)

 

In their report, “Rage on the Right: The Year in Hate and Extremism,” Intelligence Report, Spring 2010, asserts that the Tea Party movement is “shot through with rich veins of radical ideas, conspiracy theories and racism.” They quote radical scribe Chip Berlet, who breathlessly charges, “We are in the midst of one of the most significant right-wing populist rebellions in United States history.” The SPLC goes on to complain that only 25 percent of respondents to a recent NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll think the federal government can be trusted. And, according to the SPLC, another dangerous sign of the times is the introduction in 37 state legislatures of “Tenth Amendment Resolutions,” based on the constitutional provision keeping all powers not explicitly given to the federal government with the states. (Targeting the Tea Parties; By Wayne Lutton; The Social Contract Press, Volume 20, Number 3 (Spring 2010), Issue theme: “The Southern Poverty Law Center – A Special Report“)

 

 

All of these fears that are actually propaganda lies from the Left are pointed to the Tea Party Movement. NOW, after the Occupy Movement is spreading across the nation, there is an extreme lack of reporting on the real violence and thuggery going on inspired by the Left.

 

Jeff Jacoby has written an article entitled, “Occupiers, Tea Partiers, and the Tenth Amendment.” Jacoby exposes this Leftist hypocrisy of accusing the Tea Party Movement rallies of all kinds of despicable acts when the reality is these dysfunctional Occupy kids not only have no idea what they are protesting but are receiving an education on how to protest from Left Wing interests that are promoting violence and anarchy against the legal authorities AND also exacting vandalism, theft and rape. I dare anyone that is not a lunatic that say this same action occurs at Tea Party Movement rallies.

Occupy Wall Street: Bettering or Destroying America?

Hmm… Is the Occupy Wall Street crowd as honorable, more honorable or less honorable than the Tea Party Movement? The Occupy Wall Street crowd are just a bunch of American hating kids receiving guidance from Left Wing interests intent on transforming America into a Leftist utopia devoid of the precepts of the Founding Fathers and rational Christian ethics.

Is Sarah Palin now Irrelevant?


Sarah Palin shrugging

Judson Phillips writing for the Tea Party Nation believes Sarah Palin will nearly become irrelevant as a mover and shaker in Conservative politics after her announcement that she is not seeking the GOP nomination for President. Phillips believes her “superstar” value began to depreciate from the moment of her announcement.

 

I know I am a diehard supporter of Palin so I want to disagree with Phillips’ analysis of Palin’s political prospects. I believe on a grassroots level that a push on whoever wins the GOP nomination should be pressured to select Sarah Palin as the VP nominee.

 

Phillips is willing to believe that Palin might reinvent herself in a later election much as Richard Nixon did after losing to John F Kennedy in 1960. Personally I believe President Reagan’s journey is a better axiom to follow. After all Reagan went from movie star power, Conservative Governor of California, losing a couple of GOP nominations for President, then winning the GOP nomination and then winning the 1980 election for President.

 

Phillips uses statistics to show that Palin is no longer electable in Alaska citing lower popularity than should exist in her home State; however I am not convinced that is entirely the case as much as the good old boy Republican establishment of Alaska despises Sarah Palin. (Can you say Senator Lisa Murkowski?)

 

Phillips looks to a Palin rising star to possibly occur in Arizona to tackle a GOP nomination to replace retiring Senator Kyl. Nothing is impossible in politics but Palin has gone to great lengths to place her home as the State of Alaska. She loves the State that her primary growing up years had occurred.

 

Pointing to the recent death of Steve Jobs Phillips also used his life as an analogy of how Palin might come back. For instance Jobs was fired from the Apple Company he had founded only to return to save Apple’s butt when hard times had happened twelve years later. That is a good analogy.
