Edwin Meese III has an op-ed commentary on the Obama agenda collapse.
One of the large Tea Party groups known as the Tea Party Express lauds the Tea Party Movement for influencing a Republican majority in the House of Representatives BUT issues a warning to Republicans to not expect a Tea Party Movement rubber stamp of Republican actions if they do not line up with Tea Party Movement expectations. In other words the RINOs and Republicans that ignore the voters mandate which is in reality a Tea Party mandate will become political targets for another ‘throw the bums out’ vote in 2012.
Statement on Tea Party Victories in 2010 Elections
Turns Attention to 2012 Elections and Holding 2010 Victors Accountable
From: TPE Press Release
Sent: Nov 3, 2010 at 4:02 AM
Tea Party Express
The Tea Party Express issued the following statement regarding the 2010 election victories by tea party candidates across the nation:
“The Tea Party Express congratulates the scores of tea party candidates who won campaigns across this country, including hundreds of candidates who were supported by the Tea Party Express and our membership.
“The biggest victory might be the fact that the impact of the tea party movement was so strong that everyone – even many Democrats – started adopting the messaging and positions of the tea party movement.
“There weren’t all that many candidates running on the platform defending tax-spend-bailout policies or big government excess, such as ObamaCare.
“In one race where a candidate turned against the tea party principles, and was closely linked to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the candidate lost. That candidate was Congressman Walt Minnick (D-Idaho) who had been endorsed by the Tea Party Express in the primary. After he turned against the Tea Party Express, rejecting our endorsement, accepting the endorsement instead of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and refusing to commit to the repeal of ObamaCare, the Tea Party Express endorsed his Republican challenger, Raul Labrador. After a late blitz of radio and TV ads by the Tea Party Express opposing Minnick and supporting Labrador, Minnick found himself voted out of office once the election returns came in.
“There were a few races where tea party candidates came up short including Senate races in Delaware and Nevada. In those races, the tea party candidates had to battle both the Republican and Democrat political establishments during their quests for election victory, and this is exactly as it should be.
“We cannot simply say that the Republican Party’s preferred candidate should be the tea party candidate. Winning Republican control of the Senate at the expense of the platform and principles of the Republican Party is no victory. Our nation got itself into the mess we face because Republicans sold out their principles and joined Democrats in supporting the policies of tax-spend-bailout.
“The tea party movement will continue to hold both political parties accountable as the 2012 elections approach, and we at the Tea Party Express look forward to building on the election gains of Tuesday, to further strengthen and build the constitutional conservative constituency in the House, Senate and White House in 2012.”

Today is Election Day. Sarah Palin yesterday in a Facebook post said that today would be Freedom Day. She used the analogy that our U.S. Constitution insures that a transfer of Power in America is a peaceful transition. She equates every General Election as a continuation of the Freedom fought for and won in the Revolutionary War. Each Election Day thus is a Freedom Day. Don’t allow Freedom Day to be wasted with an eligible voter failing to vote. God help us to perpetuate America’s Constitution by voting for those who actually support it rather than for those who wish to transform it into the Leftist garbage of a Living Constitution.
My fellow Conservative Republicans, the finality of Election 2010 is a mere few days away on November 2. You will be inundated with TV and Radio ads; political phone calls; political Newspaper and Magazine ads and of course the ever ubiquitous Internet. Along with these ads there will be pleas for donations for the cause of Conservative candidates to finance those political ads. Be sure to choose a candidate or Political Action Committee (PAC) in which the waning days of the 2010 election cycle will benefit the best.
I believe I found a good PAC to support. This one appears to be associated with Dick Morris or at least Morris was a spokesman. Check this out: Super PAC for America has a very laudable goal. That goal is called Project 100. The essence of the goal is to win 100 Congressional seats on November 2, 2010.

An Urgent Message
From the Desk of Dick Morris
We Are Approaching a Defining Moment in Our Nation’s History . . .
The Decisions Made in the Days Ahead May Determine Whether Our Country Triumphantly Returns to Greatness or Staggers Closer to Collapse . . .
Your Help and Your Voice are Needed to . . .
Join Your Fellow Americans to Usher in a Brighter Future for Our Nation!
Dear Fellow American:
Over the last couple of years, America has been bruised and battered.
Our $13.5 trillion federal deficit has pushed our nation to the verge of bankruptcy.
Obamacare has threatened our right to live a long and healthy life.
And the end of the Bush tax cuts, combined with drastic federal and state tax hikes, have put your wealth and retirement savings at risk.
Barack Obama’s liberal agenda and “Big Government” initiatives are directly attacking the freedom, safety, and prosperity of every American.
But now is not the time to give up. Now is the time to stand up.
In these moments I’d like to remind you of the immortal words of President Ronald Reagan from his now famous 1980 Republican Convention acceptance speech:
For those who have abandoned hope, we’ll restore hope and we’ll welcome them into a great national crusade to make America great again!
You see, the bell hasn’t rung. A knockout punch was not delivered.
We are the nation of Washington, Lincoln, and Reagan. We stand for freedom, prosperity, and independence.
And it’s time we take America back.
With your help we can stand up with pride . . . dust ourselves off . . . and rebuild our nation into one that our Founding Fathers would be proud of.
America is at a Historic Crossroads.
The decisions made by not only you, but your friends, family, and neighbors on November 2 will determine the path of our nation and its future 10, 20 — even 100 years from today.
We cannot be silent. We cannot rest on our laurels.
And we certainly cannot assume that we will reclaim our nation at the voting booths — without taking necessary measures to make it a reality.
The Democrats have been launching unprecedented smear attacks against Republican and Tea Party candidates. They are drumming up their base.
And many races are becoming too close for inaction.
This is why I have joined with other national leaders in supporting the “Super PAC for America.”
This is a powerful and formidable grassroots organization that will unite the citizens of this great nation.
The goal is simple — on November 2 we will stand up and change America’s path for the better.
And powering this movement is a very ambitious goal.
I am calling it “Project 100.”
Our plan is for the Republicans to win 100 seats in this year’s congressional elections.
This is admittedly a bold goal. But with enough support very attainable.
I have studied the numbers very carefully, and we believe this can be done.
And when it happens a shockwave will resonate not only through Washington, but also around the world.
Right now the Democrats control the House of Representatives by 39 votes.
Republicans need to simply win 39 seats to gain control.
Now while the GOP gaining control of the House is positive change, it’s far from an overwhelming mandate.
To fix America we need to win a very large majority to send a powerful message to the establishment.
A message that will be impossible to ignore in the White House and on Capitol Hill.
With Project 100 we will win with a very large majority.
And the positive effects will be immediate:
· With this mandate we can repeal Obamacare.
· We can enact successful economic reform initiatives that will put our country back on a proper financial footing and deal with the staggering debt our nation faces.
· We can fix the immigration epidemic and secure our borders.
· We can enhance national security and win the war on terror.
· We can restore family values.
· We can demand our elected officials be held accountable for their actions . . . or inactions.
That’s why I am teaming up with the Super PAC for America’s “Project 100.”
But we need your help to realize these goals.
Here’s our strategy.
As you know, there are 50 likely seats that Republicans will win this year.
Right now, the national committees and other donors are contributing heavily to these 50 Republicans in key races across the country.
These 50 races are, for the moment, the most likely winners.
Super PAC for America’s approach will be even more aggressive.
We are going to select the 50 races we believe are “second-tier” races. Ones that are not on the priority list for the national committees.
Ones the Democrats thought were “safe seats.”
With a relatively small amount of money spent by Super PAC for America in these districts we could win an additional 50 seats.
And this will give Republicans 100 new seats for this Congress!
Imagine how Americans will vote in these additional 50 swing districts if we clearly spell out to them how Obamacare is going to reduce their Medicare benefits.
Left in place, Obamacare will target seniors with massive cuts of over $500 billion in benefits.
And Obama will add 30 million new people to the national healthcare system. This will undoubtedly cause long waits and endanger access to doctors and hospitals.
As you know, private insurance rates are ballooning. Children and seniors are being dropped from their coverage despite what President Obama sold the public about the end of “pre-existing conditions.”
And our brave men and women in the military have been left out in the cold for much of the benefit of this so-called “reform.”
But besides excluding Americans, this controversial legislation is also not economically viable.
The cost of federal outlays are set to skyrocket over a trillion dollars thanks to Obamacare.
But repealing Obamacare is just one issue that will be focused on to push Congress in the Republicans’ favor.
How will independent voters in swing districts feel when it is clearly explained to them that the Bush tax cuts are expiring, and they are set to get hit with the largest tax hike in history?
President Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised to vote on the Bush tax cuts before they recessed.
But there has been no vote because it’s been delayed until after the elections.
Typical of them, they lied.
This is because they are trying to avoid the public outcry of their true intentions until it’s too late for you to do anything about it.
They hope Americans have short memories. That they will forget about the coming assault on their wealth.
But the “Project 100” will not let the citizens of this great nation forget.
I believe when independent voters hear the message we are going to send them, we are going to win 100 new Republican seats, giving Republicans a majority of over 60 votes in the new Congress!
This will not only send a powerful message to the establishment in Washington, it will also create a powerful force for change and the restoration of the Reagan agenda in Washington . . .
Less Government, Less Taxes, and Strong National Security.
These are the ideals of the Tea Party movement as well as all Reagan conservatives like you and me.
And they can become real.
The more we spend on these “safe Democratic seats” the more we put these incumbents in danger.
The Democrats will have to tie up incredible amounts of resources to defend these second-tier 50 seats that they once thought were safe.
They will not be able to help other Democrats in trouble in the first 50 seats now at risk.
In football we would call this strategy “prevent offense.”
The Super PAC for America is in a Unique Position.
Because we are fighting for the issues and candidates who support the Founding Fathers’ view of America there is no limit to the amount you can donate.
We are not driven by individual candidates, but a vision of how America should and can be.
The America you believe in.
The Super PAC for America is powered by average Americans who can only spare $5, $25, or $100, as well as those who can afford much more.
As I said, there is no limit to how much you can donate. And you are legally allowed to donate as an individual or as a corporation.
Our Goal Is Very Simple. In The Next Three Weeks We Are Seeking To Raise $20 Million For “Project 100.”
If we divide $20 million over 50 districts it would be an expenditure of approximately $400,000 per district.
But we believe many of these districts are in small media markets where that money can go very, very far.
You can have a powerful impact in a short time. You can change the direction of our country by donating to us.
A $400,000 donation from a donor will give us one more Republican in Congress.
$100,000 will make a huge difference in our media efforts, even $50,000.
Most Americans can’t afford such large donations.
Even $1,000 or $500 will help.
A donation of $250 can buy a TV ad in many districts reaching hundreds of thousands. Anything you can give will help.
With your help we can act as the guardian angel for this second-tier of 50 congressional seats that are up for grabs.
You can provide the much-needed support to these candidates by helping us flood the TV and radio airwaves.
Your donation can fortify our direct-mail and online efforts.
And by lending your financial support we can set up phone banks across America.
We can get the message out. Your message.
We can reclaim the America we know and love.
The one that has been taken from us by those who do not share our views.
“If Not Us, Who? If Not Now, When?”
I can’t add anything more to his statement.
This was his call to arms. And today it’s mine to you as well.
Now is the time for us to act.

Conservatives4Palin as well as Tea Partiers who have an understanding of the meaning of the Sarah Palin phenomenon assume she will be running for President in 2012 and will the GOP nomination to defeat President Barak Hussein Obama.
My understanding of this phenomenon is that Palin has become a political icon or at least a political representation of the main components of the Tea Party Movement. Those components are:
· Fiscal Responsibility
· Limited Government
· Free Market
· Fair or less Taxation
Who better to implement Tea Party principles than Sarah Palin who has crossed the lines of the various local Tea Party organizations supporting Tea Party Conservatives (mostly GOP) to throw the Leftist bums out?
This election joke was sent by a friend. It is quite humorous!

Indian Wanting Coffee:
An Indian walks into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand and the other hand pulling a male buffalo with the other. He says to the waiter:
The waiter says, “Sure, Chief. Coming right up.”
He gets the Indian a tall mug of coffee…..
The Indian drinks the coffee down in one gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the shotgun, causing parts of the animal to splatter everywhere and then just walks out.
The next morning the Indian returns.
He has his shotgun in one hand, pulling ANOTHER male buffalo with the other.
He walks up to the counter and says to the waiter:
The waiter says, “Whoa, Tonto!
We’re still cleaning up your mess from yesterday. What was all that about, anyway?”
The Indian smiles and proudly says,
“Training for position in United States Congress.
Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, leave mess for others to clean up, disappear for rest of day.”
ON NOVEMBER 2 VOTE THEM ALL OUT OF OFFICE!
If you follow the Mainstream Media (MSM) even just a tiny bit you are aware that Democrats and the Leftist oriented MSM often disparage Tea Party folks as racist, bigoted, Right Wing Nut Jobs and so on.
Ann Coulter wrote a column in which the theme is: If you think the Tea Party Movement adherents are crazy then take an insightful look at Democrats running for Office.

Jim Moran is a Dem-Party Congressman from the Virginia 8th District. Moran is a typical Dem voting with his fellow Leftists 98% of the time. Here is a Red State post in which Moran blames President Bush, the NRA and Republicans in general for Seung-Hui Cho killing 32 at Virginia Tech in 2007. The reality is that Cho had mental health issues and boom; he exploded into a homicidal killing machine then taking his own life afterwards.
In running for reelection Moran has continued his Leftist state of reality by taking aim at the Republican opponent retired Veteran Col. Patrick Murray making a remark about the difference between serving our Country by fighting America’s enemies in foreign wars and those he believes provide a more important service; i.e. those people volunteering for the Community good. And since Moran is a Leftist I am guessing his view of Community organizing is more support for alternate lifestyles, baby killing, undermining his nation with Socialist transformative concepts of change. I am certain Moran was referring to the local PTA or perhaps the Rotary Club publicly, that would be divergent from his Dem-Party President BHO elected on the mantra of Change which voters misinterpreted as changing politics as usual. President BHO’s ideological mentors such as Alinsky, Ayers and Rev. Wright should have been a wake-up call to BHO’s concept of Change. Jim Moran has a rating of voting 98% with the Dem-Party; he has to be an ideological team mate of President BHO.
I received the scoop on Moran from Move America Forward Freedom PAC informing that his comments are damaging his campaign.
Moran Stands Behind his Insulting Remark: Military Service is Meaningless!
Sent by: Danny Gonzales

Negative publicity has been burying Jim Moran ever since it became publicly known the he slandered the service of millions of troops and veterans last week. Moran shamefully said that when our troops put their lives on the line that it’s not “public service!”
Yesterday, Moran DEFENDED his outrageous and insulting statements, saying that he was talking about public services that specifically target Virginia, “a civic association, (parent-teacher association), or a non-profit charitable group” as he listed the different groups he considered “public servants”.
Not to take anything away from PTAs and charitable organizations but you’ll agree with us when we say that defending our country from enemies like Al Qaeda and The Taliban is much more a vital public service that benefits all Americans (including Virginians) than a neighborhood watch or Rotary Club that organizes a public park cleanup.
We applaud those organizations, but it’s nothing like what our troops do for us, safeguarding our freedoms and keeping us safe from those that would do us harm! Jim Moran is saying that serving on the PTA is more of a “public service” than serving in Afghanistan!
It’s unacceptable for an elected official to devalue the service of our troops, let’s send Jim Moran to an early retirement by sending US Army Colonel Patrick Murray to Congress!
Our troops are there for us whenever duty calls. Whether it’s to protect us from terrorists or helping people devastated by natural disasters and other emergencies, our troops deserve some credit for the public services they provide!
Patrick Murray, the immediate target of Moran’s attacks, defended himself and his fellow veterans, saying “This kind of disrespect to our service members not only offends me, but is insensitive to the sacrifices made by our dedicated military families as well.”
Colonel Patrick Murray is a 24 year Army Veteran who comes from a military family. His father served in WWII before Patrick joined the ROTC program in college. After graduating he became an officer in the Army and went on to serve in Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and many other places. He served in Iraq as part of The Surge that changed the course of the war there, and in doing so, the course of history.
Colonel Murray challenged Jim Moran, “Why don’t you come with me to Arlington Cemetery, where more of my friends and fellow service members are buried than I care to think about, and tell their surviving family members that their loved ones hand no public service. “
You can bet those military families, just as the millions of military families around the country who feel insulted, would tell Jim Moran that their loved one’s sacrifice in the interest of public service was more important than anything Jim Moran has accomplished in congress.

President Barack Hussein Obama obviously seeing the handwriting on the wall pertaining to the November 2, 2010 election has made an accusation against the Chamber of Commerce and by extension the Republican Part. The no smoking gun accusation is that the Chamber of Commerce is receiving foreign money to finance anti-Democratic Party election campaigns. I wonder if BHO has forgotten who Hungarian born George Soros who make his billions initially on East European money speculation. Certainly
Dr. Evil ah … I mean Soros became a US citizen in 1961, but his wealth smacks of foreign funds.
Then there is the fact that President Barack Hussein Obama benefitted from millions of foreign money donations.
The Obama accusation is a reflection of his feelings toward the American dream of bettering oneself via America’s time honored any person can make it with good hard work and a free market economy. After all the Chamber of Commerce is what effectively represents community small businesses – the mom and pop operations or the small business paradigm.
Since part of the accusation relates to Karl Rove allegedly managing foreign donations for campaigns, let’s read his verbal slap of for the Obama accusation.
