old media & John Burch Society * The DC Dance is on

Amazing how people are afraid of something.  A lady sent me a link on the John Burch Society and I sent it out with her as via.  She asked me not to include her name. 
 
The media destroyed the John Burch Society in favor of the new Deal, which is now in default Fiscally and the Dems want to cheat to get Federal Healthcare.  They know that this is the last of their days unless they take over now.
 
The John Burch Society is posthumously supported by William Buckley and is Constitutionalist, of Constitutional Conduct.  Why would this be called extreme Erick Erickson?  What do you think Eric Odom?

Remember how the GOP gave us Federal Education and MedicareD under Bush43? Before, under the Democrat Congress, we had the GOP acting like they apposed the Democrat agenda, but when the GOP took over Congress they did not act on anything?  Ever wonder why?  The above dance on the Healthcare Resolution (HCR) is a fine example of the DC Power I call the Shadow back to it's tyrannical ways. 
 
 Ever wonder why the GOP will not and does not embrace the Constitution?

TeaParty Express~ Surprise! It's your birthday today!

 

Happy Birthday Fellow Tea Party Activists!

It was exactly one year ago today - February 27th - that the first 'organized' round of tea parties took place across America.  And look how far we've come in just one year!

*The government-run heath care push has been stalled and/or stopped countless times.  Obama, Pelosi and Reid have put forth deadline-after-deadline and been forced to walk away sheepishly with their tail between their legs for each failure to advance their push towards socialized medicine.

*Scott Brown's historic victory over the liberal Democrat establishment in Massachusetts.

*Stopping Congress - thus far - from forcing through the Big Government, junk-science, anti-capitalism fiasco known as Cap-And-Trade.

*The forced resignations of some of Obama's most radical "czars" including most notably his "Green Jobs Czar," Van Jones.

*The stunning election results in the governor's races in New Jersey and Virginia.

*The giant "Townhall" pushback where politicians were finally confronted about their failures, their out-of-control deficit-spending, and big-government programs and push towards a more socialized economy.

*The forced resignations of prominent politicians who were under fire from the tea party movement and in jeopardy of losing their seats - such as Senators Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota) and Chris Dodd (D-Connecticut).

*Thousands of tea party rallies across America, attracting millions of participants, to challenge the failed political establishments in both the Republican & Democrat parties.  Notable highlights including the April 15, 2009 "Tax Day Tea Parties," the series of Tea Party Express rallies & cross-country tours, and the 9/12 mass tea party rally in Washington, D.C.

*A victory over the Republican political establishment that nominated a liberal, big-government "RINO" (Republican In Name Only), Dede Scozzafava for Congress in the NY-23 Special Election.  The tea party movement mobilized behind Conservative Doug Hoffman, forcing the GOP to pull their support for their own nominee (Scozzafava), and catapulting a little-known candidate into a national figure who nearly beat the political machines of both the Republican & Democrat parties.

And that's just a partial list of some of the tea party movement's accomplishments in one year.

Last week, RNC Chairman Michael Steele sat down with a few dozen tea party activists and held a 4-hour long "summit" to hear the grievances of tea party supporters.

That event in itself should speak volumes about the power of this movement.  A movement born from citizen activism just one-year ago held court with a national party chair for 4-hours, because the voices of the people in this movement proved so powerful that they could not be ignored.

As Governor Palin recently said in her speech at the Tea Party Nation's convention:

"The tea party movement is not a top-down operation, it is a ground-up call-to-action that is forcing both parties to change the way they do business and that's beautiful!  This is about the people!" [Emphasis added]

And yes - both sides are paying attention.

The San Francisco Chronicle (not exactly known as a bastion of right-wing political propaganda) published an article on January 19th of this year - yes exactly one year ago after Rick Santelli's historic 'tea party' rant on CNBC - that included a mea culpa from none other than liberal San Francisco Mayor, Gavin Newsom, calling for Democrats to take the tea party movement seriously:

Regardless of the outcome ... this should be a gigantic wake-up call to the Democratic Party - that we're not connecting with the needs, the aspirations and the desires of real people right now," said San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

 

"We better get our act together - and quickly," Newsom said. Voters "are so angry. They don't feel that we're paying attention to their needs, in terms of their jobs, and what's going on at the grassroots, in their neighborhoods."

And we must remember, it was that famous rant by CNBC's Rick Santelli that inspired those first rounds of organized tea parties.  Millions of Americans have now heard and seen the inspirational video of Santelli, on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, speaking plainly and forcefully for free market principles that reward hard work and success, and not government-mandated redistribution of wealth.

Motivated to follow Santell's call-to-arms, we posted his 'rant' on our blog at the Our Country Deserves Better MySpace page and attended the February 27th tea party rally in Sacramento, California that was organized by the local Free Republic chapter.

From that point forward we here at the Tea Party Express plunged head-first into the tea party movement, helping to promote rallies, organize events, support good candidates, oppose bad candidates, and do all we can to help take our country back!

We've been proud to share Lloyd Marcus's "American Tea Party Anthem" with the world.  We came across the Rivoli Revue's "A Bailout Song" and began promoting that too.

            

Through it all, we here at the Tea Party Express have always approached this movement with a sense of joy and positive energy.  That strikes some in the media as odd - they look at us and see only anger and frustration.  And yes, we are angry at the failures of our leaders.  And yes, we are frustrated at how defiant they have been to We The People.

But we have chosen to approach this movement by celebrating the greatness of America.  We celebrate the freedom we have to question our government.  We celebrate the freedom of speech and right to assemble.  We celebrate the principles our nation was founded on as extolled by the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.

And, yes, we proudly, loudly and enthusiastically celebrate the freedom to organize politically so as to defeat those failed Big Government politicians and replace them with constitutional conservatives!

There are many different groups, leaders and activists within this movement.  That is a sign of strength, not weakness, as our opponents mistakenly allege.  Each of the groups we have worked with in this movement have brought their own talents and abilities to the table.

*The Tea Party Patriots have assembled a network of local tea party groups that is unrivaled. 

*The American Liberty Alliance has a greater sense of tech-savvy and knowledge of online activism than just about any other group in this movement. 

*The National Precinct Alliance has worked steadfastly to change the political parties from within, by taking over the local structure of the political parties. 

*The fine folks at ResistNet have empowered their activists to achieve success from direct action and drills better than any other group. 

*Our friends at Free Republic helped launch this movement and have used their own network to help boost the tea party movement. 

*The team at Smart Girl Politics have engaged in some of the best work to get patriots involved in voter registration drives. 

*The team at FreedomWorks organized the historic 9/12 march and have helped to make the GOP establishment take the tea party movement seriously in a way few others have been able to do.

*The team at American Majority have conducted the most comprehensive series of candidate and activist training seminars and workshops. 

*The group at the Tea Party Nation put together the first national conference for tea party activists and secured the support of Gov. Sarah Palin who helped bring a huge round of media coverage for the tea party movement.

*The American Grassroots Coalition has unleashed a tidal wave of phone calls, emails and FAXes to Members of Congress, and helped to give voice to our movement to those in Congress who are supposed to represent us.

And again, that's just part of the story.  There are so many other groups and individuals (from the National Tax Limitation Committee, to the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, to the National Taxpayers Union and Club for Growth, to Americans for Prosperity and so many more) who have helped to propel this movement forward.

Friends, our strength is in our numbers.  We all have different styles, different strategies and different approaches.  And we're going to disagree with one another in this movement at times.  That's all good!  Those who fear this tea party movement - and what it might mean to their own hold on power or how it might threaten their own more liberal ideological movements - will try to exploit our differences at times.

But what our critics fail to understand is that try however hard they might, they will never be able to silence the growing majority in this country who recognize that our country is off-track, and that we've lost our ways from the American ideals that our great nation was founded on.

We here at the Tea Party Express will continue our efforts, focused on what *we* can bring to the table and what we do best: our bus tours, rallies, Action Alerts, petition drives and most importantly our ability to rally hundreds of thousands of Americans behind political campaigns to take our country back!

Happy Birthday fellow tea party activists.  You all have so much worth celebrating in your first year of existence!  Let us work hard to make our 2nd year an even bigger success!

** FORWARD TO A FRIEND **

SSI 29 Billion in Red, Fed. spending 2 for 1 dollar taxed. Wheres that Reset Button

We have come to the point of no return.  Our lack of Constitutional adherence gave us SSI and Medicare/Medicaid which are all going broke.  SSI is projected to be 29 Billion dollars in deficit in 2010, with many baby boomers yet to go on the rolls. 
 
If we do not find the solution that is in our laps to fix this mess, it will destroy us and our Constitution and the liberty and freedom with it.
 
HSA accounts will put competition back into the healthcare field. Privatizing SSI will safeguard it from the corrupt government stealing it as they already have.
 
Thus we need to give SSI and the Medical back to the States, cut federal taxes that match it and let the people decide how to proceed in their own State/Nation. An HSA/IRA mandate by states would easily replace the federal systems.
 
To make the transition it will take about 20 years for those already dependent on the federal programs to be weeded off.  The need to do so is jobs, as it is for everything else. When President Reagan gave us free trade, we were, and still are, under a tax Structure built into the product cost.  So when imports came in, they in essence evaded the federal tax by default, de fault of our government by ignorance or by purpose to distribute USA jobs to the world, left the tax structure in place.  We are now to the end of the collapsing manufacturing market in America and unless we change the tax structure, we will digress either into a communist/fascist state or back into the 18th century with self preservation the norm, gardens or starvation.
 
We need FairTax yesterday and we need constitutional conduct in DC yesterday.  Without both, our nation's future does not include the liberty and justice we have so taken for granted.
 
 Thankyou Governor Huckabee for being ahead of the curve on this teaparty movement.  Let your Constitutionalism shine.
 
George

Organizing Kids for Obama
February 26, 2010 by Phyllis Schlafly
President Barack Obama's budget has added more than $100 billion of federal taxpayers' money to what is called "education," so that means it will be spent by alumni of the Saul Alinsky school of radical community organizing and/or the Chicago Democratic machine. We're indebted to Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com for exposing the shocking use of some of these funds.

Obama is using the public schools to recruit a private army of high-schoolers to "build on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda." We now know that Obama's "agenda" is to move the United States into European-style Socialism.

Obama's internet outreach during his campaign, Obama for America, has been renamed Organizing for America (OFA) in order to recruit students to join a cult of Obama and become activists for his goals. Geller discovered that the teacher of an 11th-grade government class in Massillon, Ohio, passed out the sign-up sheet, headed with Obama's "O" logo, asking students to become interns for Organizing for America.

These interns will be given an intensive nine-week training course using comprehensive lesson plans. Assigned readings include Saul Alinsky's notorious Rules for Radicals, Stir It Up: Lessons from Community Organizing and Advocacy by the left-wing activist Rinku Sen, and particular sections of Dreams From My Father dealing with Obama's days as a community organizer in Chicago.

Republican students will be filtered out of the intern program by requiring applicants to answer questions that reveal their politics. One example is, "What one issue facing our country is important to you and why?"

Geller said the purpose of this training to become Alinsky-style community organizers, is "of course, to elect more Democrats." The internship program is specifically geared to get the kids working in the 2010 elections.

The sign-up sheet for Organizing for America starts with this instruction: "Organizing for America, the successor organization to Obama for America, is building on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda of change." The application explains that this national internship program is "working to make the change we fought so hard for in 2008 a reality in 2010 and beyond."

This is not the first time Obama has tried to enlist schoolchildren into an Obama cult. Last fall, the instructions mailed to every school by Secretary of Education Arne Duncan added a very political dimension to Obama's speech that was broadcast to public school children on September 8.

Geller explained the extensive political dimension of the new intern program. The OFA student interns will be trained in the goals and language of the left: "anti-war agitation, anti-capitalism, Marx, Lenin, [Bill] Ayers, LGBT agenda promotion, global warming, soft-on-jihad, and illegal immigration."

Another item on OFA's reading list is The New Organizers by Zack Exley. It brags about "an insurgent generation of organizers" inside the Obama campaign that has "almost without anyone noticing ... built the Progressive movement a brand new and potentially durable people's organization, in a dozen states, rooted at the neighborhood level."

The ten-page "National Intern Organizer Curriculum" is very specific in describing the tactics that interns will be taught. It includes these components: "Using Story as an Organizing Tool, Building Relationships and Building Teams, Mobilizing to Win On the Issues (issue advocacy), Health Care Service Project."

Passage of Obamacare is one of this intern project's major goals. The curriculum promises to provide "insight on the strategy and plan behind the health care campaign" and "further motivate them to work on the issue."

The sign-up sheet states that the "purpose" of training these students is "to build community" among the interns and teach them "to be leaders in OFA's organizing work." After all, Barack Obama knows a great deal about being a community organizer; that was his only job before he got into politics.

Job prospects may be bleak for many Americans, but they will be rosy for alumni of Obama's intern program. After the students have been fully trained as Alinsky-style community organizers, they will be eligible for jobs in Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, or Learn and Serve America.

Those three so-called "service" organizations, which annually dole out millions of dollars to left-wing groups, are overseen by the Corporation for National and Community Service. The U.S. Senate just confirmed this Corporation's new chief executive, Patrick Corvington, who was a senior official of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, which has given over a million and a half dollars to the ACORN network of organizations.

Focus Founder Says Future of U.S. Social Policy
a Mixed Bag

by Nima Reza, managing editor

After 33 years at Focus on the Family, Dr. James Dobson bids farewell to the organization he began in a small office in Southern California.

Through the vision and leadership of Dr. Dobson, 40 law and policy organizations have been founded over the years, including 37 state-based family policy councils, as well as the national organizations Family Reseach Council, American Family Association and the Alliance Defense Fund. By lending his influence and reputation to these organizations, the legacy of righteousness extends far and wide throughout our country.

We had the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Dobson during his last week at Focus. His emotions are mixed, and so are his feelings about the future of America.

Teaparty Patriots, Freedom Force Prepares for Full Scale Launch

 

Home


Before saying anything else, let me state how thrilled I am to find myself surrounded by so many great patriots. I want to thank ALL who have stepped up to take charge of their nation! Now… ready to roll?

On October 19, 2009 – I called upon the Tea Party, Town Hall and 912 movements across the country to "unite" and begin working on "tangible" solutions in my column - Time for the Tea Party to become Tangible. I had no idea where that column was going to lead me in the days and weeks that followed.

That simple but powerful idea was immediately embraced by millions of American patriots who were tired of being ignored by their elected officials, tired of protests, petitions and town hall confrontations, all seemingly going nowhere fast.

Less than two weeks later on November 2, 2009 – I had assembled a team of patriotic leaders to help me begin to form what would become Freedom Force ~ Taking Back America – written about in - I Pledge My Allegiance to the Charters of Freedom.

From broad idea to tangible action in less than two weeks was not even on my mind when I wrote that first column in October. But it was a reality by November 2nd.

We established a pledge page and a goal to raise $10 million in pledges from patriotic citizens across the country, with nothing more than my column reach as a starting point. An ambitious goal to say the least and one many people doubted. What has happened since is nothing short of astonishing!

I had correctly defined uniting the right as "herding cats" based upon my past experience as a member of the American political right. Unlike the political left, which is accustomed to marching in lockstep behind cult leaders, the right is quite another animal.

In the political right you will find military officers, past and present, business owners, middle and upper management corporate executives, in short, "leaders" not accustomed to "following" anyone and in some ways, not well suited for "uniting" with others.

To be certain, the egos and personal agendas of many on the right would present the greatest challenge to "uniting the right." Timing and technique is everything in this regard…

Unlike all other efforts to "unite the right," Freedom Force was designed to leave all of those "leaders" in the position of continuing to "lead" their groups and organizations. Freedom Force asked no one to leave their important leadership positions to follow me or Freedom Force. Instead, Freedom Force only offered a place where ALL leaders on the right could LEAD their groups in concert with others of like mind and cause. Freedom Force only sought to unite the leaders and their groups upon common goals, with a cohesive strategic alliance.

Once faction leaders started to understand that Freedom Force was not in competition with any other group, but was designed only to unite the efforts of those groups in common, making all of them stronger and more productive, they began to lead their groups towards a purpose greater than the individual agendas of the factions.

By the end of November, Freedom Force had received pledges from thousands of American patriots in every state and many parts of the world, and we continue to grow organically today, with NO help from the press, conservative TV and radio personalities, or even many faction leaders. While we came up short on our goal of $10 million in pledges, the support is sufficient to move ahead and the message from patriots is undeniable.

They want tangible solutions, targeted strategies, action oriented information and a unifying force focused on that which we all share in common, rather than the hundreds of special interest agendas that promises to keep the right divided and impotent.

By December 7, 2009 – Freedom Force rolled out its first strategic partner, National Precinct Alliance – written about in - Nevada Precinct Success Launches National Precinct Alliance. Thousands more rushed to join NPA and today, we are on track to duplicate the precinct success in Nevada in all 50 states. The response to NPA has been so huge that despite our efforts to prepare for the best, we remain buried in volunteer mail from every state in the country.

To say that the roll out of NPA was a resounding success would be a gross understatement.

Yet - Freedom Force has not raised a single penny in actual funding as of today!

While others have collected millions for months and have little or nothing to show in tangible results, Freedom Force is already showing tangible results and has yet to raise a penny. Imagine what we might do with a war chest…

In little more than 60 days from concept, we have come a long way baby! It's just the beginning my friends – I hope you have not misinterpreted our strategic silence over the last few weeks. We have been very quiet by intent, and very busy behind the scenes.

Early on, I predicted that the GOP was ripe for the taking. In case you missed it, the GOP is getting riper by the day. Despite the fact that 70% of Americans now claim to be "angry" at the DC elitists over their unbridled attacks on freedom, liberty and the free market economy, 46% identifying themselves a "very angry," the GOP lacks the financial capacity to capitalize on the nations disdain for the leftists running roughshod over the nation.

That's where Freedom Force comes in…

We are making final preparations for a full scale launch of the Freedom Force strategy. We will be asking folks to act on their pledges of support very soon.

But in the meanwhile, we are full speed ahead ramping up tangible nationwide initiatives. In the coming days, we will be announcing the launch of several other strategic partner initiatives:

· Freedom Force has chosen icaucus as our official candidate vetting partner. Vetted candidates will be supported at the precinct level by NPA members.

· We have established the Freedom Force Legislative Council that is already working with more than 4200 constitutionally minded state legislators all over the country and briefing a number of DC conservatives on the need to move hard right immediately, or lose their jobs.

· We have chosen the United States Grand Jury Institute as the official strategic partner which is already engaged in the education of grand juries in every state, reminding those juries of their unique position as the constitutional legal forum where the people can bring their grievances against a tyrannical Fed operating outside of its constitutional authority, and challenging the status quo in the justice system.

These Freedom Force initiatives will roll out in January 2010, and there will be more rolling out in February. State and local Tea Party, Town Hall and 912 groups are busy becoming state and local leaders in Freedom Force as well as the Freedom Force partner initiatives. We are already moving patriots across the nation into tangible action on the ground, with a cohesive national vision in common.

This is NOT about Freedom Force or JB Williams, nor is about money. This is about harnessing the collective weight and power of independent thinkers and constitutionally minded leaders from sea to shining sea, with the common goal of a unified effort to regain control of our runaway government.

The only heroes here are the American people who have had enough and are willing to take a stand and become part of a tangible and peaceful solution. I refer to this elite crowd of American patriots as "the three percenters."

· They are awake and aware
· They are action oriented
· They will risk bounty and life itself if need be, for the single cause of freedom
· They know that they can only succeed when united in common
· They never leave the heavy lifting to others
· And they never let ego or personal agenda take the front seat over American interests

Most Americans will do nothing to save this country. Many will do the wrong things. Only about three percent of Americans will do what it takes to protect and preserve freedom for all others and Freedom Force is designed for those three percenters. 97% or so will never join and they all will feel justified in that choice. Many will even offer patriotic sounding excuses, as they continue to put their personal agendas ahead of their country. 2010 promises to be an exciting year not only for Freedom Force, but for freedom itself. The three percenters all know it and look forward to it.

Never before in U.S. history has the future of freedom been under such a massive immediate threat, and never before from within.

But the three percenters are awake, they are standing up and they are taking tangible action. With help from the Almighty above, together, these American patriots will demonstrate once again for the world, why America is and will always be the freest most prosperous people on earth.

Those who can afford to provide financial support for the mission should. Those who cannot afford to provide financial support at present should join the most aggressive force for freedom in America today, bringing their talents and numbers to the cause.

Freedom Force is NOT about money. It's about people… It's not about partisan politics as usual; it's all about the preservation of freedom and liberty. It's about the need for patriots of all stripes to unite in the common cause of protecting and defending freedom and liberty.

Get in the game! You can't win from the sidelines… and divided efforts are certain suicide.

Don't wait for others to do what every American should do! Get in the game! Be a "three percenter!"

CATO Institute~Should the U.S. Withdraw from NAFTA?

Should the U.S. Withdraw from NAFTA?

Rep. Gene Taylor, D-MS, thinks so. According to CongressDaily, Taylor is about to introduce a two-page bill that would withdraw the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Taylor blames the agreement with Canada and Mexico for the loss of 5 million manufacturing jobs since it was enacted in 1994. This is a popular but false charge. Manufacturing jobs have declined in the past 15 years for one big reason: soaring productivity.

Overall output at U.S. factories was actually 37 percent higher in 2009 compared to 1993, the year before NAFTA took effect, according to Table B-51 in the latest Economic Report of the President. We are producing a higher volume of stuff with fewer workers because individual workers are so much more productive than they were in the early 1990s.

As I've argued before, NAFTA has spurred more trade and deeper integration among the three partner countries. It has created new opportunities for American companies and their workers to raise their competitiveness in global markets. It has strengthened ties to our two closest neighbors.

The U.S. government would be foolish to withdraw from an agreement that continues to pay huge dividends.

my comment:

 
The reduction of manufacturing jobs during the NAFTA raised the productivity level making the remaining jobs of higher technologically enhanced, thus hiding the fact that the real culprit is Free Trade being enacted without changing the tax structure of which was created all on product, making intentional trade handicapped by 36% Federal Tax. 
 
Farmers were impacted greatly by NAFTA.  The USDA had agreed to care for agriculture under the Trade Readjustment Act(TRA).  They didn't. I sent a letter to the Department handling TRA, who knew the act demanded USDA either provide TRA Service or give up the right to.  The result was the USDA providing TRA for the period after NAFTA. Beef Farmers received no compensation for their loss as the window for USDA TRA was after their greatest losses.
 
All this is to say, we don't need to close our borders to trade now when there is the real problem today all wrapped up in our tax structure.  If we isolate, it will unravel what we have grown.  What we need is fair trade with free trade.  One exception, add to trade rules that the same safety restrictions on domestic production be on imports.  Being as we are returning to the Constitution, EPA is now an advisory panel until we can piece meal a couple of amendments to the Constitution, if we need to.
 
FairTax will change the entire scope of imports.  Jobs will return to America the plenty.  It may reduce the productivity levels, but it will raise the Employment levels to employee shortages.  We haven't had that since the Federal Reserve started controlling employment levels, never allowing the number of workers to reach inflationary wage status.
