Governor Perry has said it well!!! If any candidate for office does not understand or agree with the value and precepts of the Constitution, then they have not my support nor my vote!!! If you do not understand how one can feel this way, read the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Federalist papers, as well as the writings of Benjamin Franklin.

I stand with Governor Perry in support of the tenth Amendment, what say you?

Enough Federal Government, cease and desist NOW!

BIG GOVERNMENT GOP & DEMS < take notice!

Another Republican booed by Tea Party protesters

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 18, 2009 08:51 AM

Scroll for updates…

I reported in my column this week the news the Tea Party-bashing MSM doesn't want to report: Republicans who supported the bailouts, the stimulus, and tax increases are in just as much hot water as Democrats. I told you that California GOP chairman Ron Nehring and GOP Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger were booed in Sacramento and GOP Gov. Jon Huntsman was booed in Utah.

Now, see this.

At the Greenville SC Tea Party last night, via Palmetto Scoop, an estimated 3,000 people booed and heckled GOP Rep. Gresham Barrett, who supported both the trillion-dollar TARP and now supports the trillion-dollar porkulus package. The crowd blew air horns as he tried to speak. Do you think the politicians are getting the message yet? And do you think someone in the MSM might grow up, stop wallowing in sexual teabagging jokes, and report these newsworthy developments? The anger at reckless spenders in Washington is palpable, deep-seated, bipartisan, nationwide, and not going away:

Update: From reader Michelle C.:

Hey Michelle,

I'm a big fan of your site. I noticed that your article about the Greenville tea party states that there were 3000 people there. I live in Greenville, and last night on the 6:00 news, when the party had just begun, WYFF stated that the crowd was around 5000 people. On the 11:00 news, WYFF stated that the police count was around 10,000 people for the tea party. I thought you might enjoy hearing how large the crowd really was.

Also, here's the funny thing– the state Democratic Party decided to hold a "Save Our Schools" rally at the same time (6:00 - 7:30) on the OTHER SIDE of the Bi-lo Center. The rally was to protest Mark Sanford for not taking the stimulus money for schools. According to WYFF 11:00 news, around 100 people showed up. According to the Democratic Party, around 200 people showed up (see Greenvilleonline.com).

The stark contrast in crowds, when shown on TV last night, was hilarious.

Keep up the good work.

Federal Reserve is about to implode, taking our Constitution with it?

NASHVILLE, Tenn (Reuters) – Paul Volcker, senior economic adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Saturday that the U.S. economic recovery will be a "long slog" but that the rate of decline "is going to slow."

The United States may not be in a Great Depression but it is "in a great recession for sure," following the economy's unprecedented tumble in late 2008, Volcker said at a financial markets conference at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee....

...Volcker said a review the Federal Reserve's role, something traditionally regarded as taboo, now seems inevitable given the fallout from the long-running financial crisis.

"For better or worse, we are at a point where the Federal Reserve Act is going to be reviewed," said Volcker.

The wide range of proposals, from giving the Fed much more supervisory authority to stripping it of part of its current authorities, "are just an indication of how wide open that question is going to be."...


my comment:

As everyone has been saying, there is no such thing as a New World Order(NWO).  It is a tin foil hat that speaks of such a thing.  It must just be total coincidence that facts unfolding around this current fiscal crisis just look like they are being orchestrated towards the game plan of this NWO. 

The Federal Reserve is the U.S. Dollar.  It's movement will determine whether we are more vulnerable to the world community powers or moved toward a  closed Nation in regards to the world community.  You can take this to the bank.  If we the People do not head off this move by the big government types, we will be losing our Constitution in short order.

Being a part of the World community is a great value, but if such a relationship is to in any way jeopardize our liberty and freedom under the Constitution, forget it.  There is not any necessity for us to be the continued world reserve.  If these flimflam men have put our dollar into bankruptcy, then le tit go down and start anew.  We are not obligated to anyone to do otherwise. 

We did not become the lone superpower by accident.  Our Nation's work ethic and the economic capitalist structure we once had led us to become the wealthiest nation in the world.  It is not of any other reason.  If we do not return to those principles, we are lost. 

Adopt the Fair  Tax Plan now!!!  Pull in the powers of the Federal reserve now!!!  We as a Nation can go through a chapter 11 type bankruptcy and survive, but any attempt ton under mine the sovereignty of the States any more then already is will end the United States of America.

I encourage you to leave comments below if you have another idea.
Tea Party Protests = Round 1. What do you want to see next?


Fair Tax is the answer to our lack of JOBS and going by the Constitution is our key to opening the door to return to the Freedom and liberty we used to have.  Go to www.mifairtax.org  &  www.fairtax.org

Motivated tea partiers prep for next round
It's not over yet! 26 upcoming protests scheduled for 17 states

Posted: April 17, 2009

Northville Township police arrest Tax Day protester (Detroit's WXYZ News)
SACRAMENTO – As many as 1 million Americans showed up at nationwide tea parties on Tax Day – and reports are still pouring in – but what's the next step for the movement?
Peaceful protests
The vast majority of protests were organized and respectful. Even with so many people in attendance, WND found reports of only one arrest.
A protester in Northville Township, Mich., stood in the middle of traffic, stopping cars with a sign that said, "We want our country back U.S.!"
She was arrested and put into a squad car by Northville Township police.
In Lafayette, Ind., officials with the state's environmental agency threatened protesters with fines if they followed through with their plans to dump tea bags into the Wabash River.
Spokeswoman Amber Finkelstein told USA Today the tea would hurt aquatic life by depleting the water of oxygen. She said the act would be a fineable offense, and that the agency would not allow the protest because the river would not meet minimum water quality standards.

Tea party in Olympia, Wash.
Nonetheless, protesters rallied and enthusiastically dumped a large box of tea bags from a bridge into the Wabash River.
Karen England, executive director of the Capitol Resource Institute, reported that police discarded U.S. flags when citizens attempted to enter the California Capitol building in Sacramento.
"We could not believe that they would prohibit the American flag in the Capitol," England said. "I am still not clear why this is prohibited. The guard at the door originally cited safety concerns, but after consulting with his superiors the rationale became a general prohibition on signs and banners."
In Washington D.C., a plan to unload 1 million tea bags in Lafayette Square was reportedly disrupted when organizers were told they lacked the proper permit. Protesters were also evicted from the Treasury Department when Secret Service officials said they did not have permission to rally there.
One protester tossed a box of tea over the fence onto the White House lawn, so Secret Service evacuated the area temporarily and sent a robot to examine what they believed to be a suspicious package.
But with just a few disruptions, organizers say the event was a resounding success.

What's next?
Now many people are asking, "What's next?"
Tax Day Tea Party national event coordinator Amy Kremer told WND, "People are pumped up, and they're ready to move on. They all want to know what the next step is. That was the first step; it was a baby step."
Kremer said organizers didn't expect Tax Day miracles, but they believe more and more people will get involved and awaken the government to its spending addiction.
"It's just like an alcoholic or drug addict," she said. "Before they can ever get help and get well, they have to admit there's a problem. Right now, our government is on this tax-and-spend binge at our children's and grandchildren's expense, and they just keep spending and spending and spending. Before we can ever find solutions, we have to admit there's a problem."
Kremer said the main goal of the protests was to have citizens' voices heard, to force elected officials to be accountable and to hold their feet to the fire.
"Earlier this year, when they were voting on the second stimulus, we melted their phone lines," she said. "We burned down their e-mail accounts. We faxed. We did everything we could, and they didn't listen to their constituents. They continue to vote the way they want."
She said politicians are in their own bubble in Washington, D.C., and haven't listened to the voices of the people.
"We hired them; we can fire them," Kremer said. "If that means we have to go after every incumbent in office from now until 2012, we will do that. But the American people are tired of sitting by, and they are starting to step forward and take notice."
The American Majority, a non-profit political training institute "committed to individual freedom through limited government and the free market," is prepared to replace those politicians with new American leaders. It launched its "After the Tea Party" plan to keep the revolution going and train people to run for office.
"There are events in history that impact the direction a nation takes," wrote Ned Ryun, president of American Majority. "This could be one of those moments."
He is calling for "implementers of freedom and limited government" to channel their passion into a long-term approach and run for public office or become more effective activists.
"If people are really fed-up with the current elected leadership of this country, then they should think about becoming the next generation of leadership," he wrote.

Ready for the next round?
Meanwhile, Michael DiPrimo, special counsel to American Family Association President Tim Wildmon, told WND the AFA has already started making plans for more tea parties on May 30 and July 4 on its National Tea Party Day website.
The organization called for new tea party plans today and has already signed up four organizers for three U.S. cities.
"Our goal is simply to keep the grassroots organizations mobilized," he said. "We want to keep people pumped up and excited, and we want them to continue to knock on the door of Congress and the White House."
DiPrimo continued, "We don't want people to think of it as a one-time event and then have it fall by the wayside. Every time you look in your wallet, think that 40 percent of what's in there goes to the government in taxes."   
WND has been hosting its own tea party forum so citizens can exchange ideas, information and announcements about the "revolution." WND readers have been sending information on upcoming tea parties, including the following 25 protests scheduled in 16 states:
