Join Tea Party Patriots & Glenn Beck at the Audit the IRS Rally June 19, 2013, Washington DC

Audit the IRS Rally
June 19th at 12:00 pm
Washington, DC
Special Guest Glenn Beck

It’s time to rein in the government!
On May 10th,2013, America learned that the IRS – perhaps the most frightening of all government agencies – has been singling out and targeting conservative groups, including Tea Party groups.  This admission from the IRS confirms what many of us had already suspected.  The IRS has, in fact, been delaying our applications and harassing those of us who wanted to form local Tea Party chapter organizations.  In some extreme cases, the IRS went after Tea Party local leaders and audited their family members.  Over the past month, we have learned more of the shocking details.  The IRS audited conservative groups across the country; the IRS asked churches and groups about their prayers; and the IRS stifled free speech and created massive target lists of individuals and organizations to harass. 

The First Amendment of the Constitution guarantees the right to free speech, which includes the right to political speech and the right to associate and form groups with other like-minded individuals.  The Tea Party movement, which began organically in 2010 in response to government excess, has attracted millions of regular Americans.  The Tea Party movement is, at its core, the embodiment of the American spirit.  The Tea Party movement sprang up in response to the government's abuses of its powers, and this latest stunt from the IRS confirms for many of us why the Tea Party is so necessary.

Americans expect that our government will enforce its laws and rules – especially its tax laws – with fairness and equal application.  Join us in Washington, DC on June 19th at 12:00 pm on the West Lawn of the Capitol for a rally to rein in the out-of-control federal government, starting with the IRS.  For more details, visit this page.

NOTE TO NON-NJ, NATIONAL READERS
June 2, 2013 - We would like to apologize to our National readers for having focused much of our  latest postings and time on the New Jersey Republican Primary.  While we cover mostly major issues on a national scale, we are based here in New Jersey and this coming Republican Primary is of great importance.

Most of the candidates above are TeamNJ Candidates and are very proud to be part of this growing organization.  The concept for this movement is simple.  We look for conservative and Constitutional candidates, regardless of party affiliation and support them, if they agree to various proposed legislation prepared by TeamNJ associates.

This concept has spread to other states and if you would like to know more about it, please contact Mr. Nicholas Purpura at: eagle4260 at optonline dot net

Doctor blasts socialized medicine

From August, 2009: Worth repeating

A "letter to the editor" in an August 29th Jackson, MS newspaper.
 

Dear Sirs:

During my last night's shift in the ER, I had the pleasure of evaluating a patient with a shiny new gold tooth, multiple elaborate tattoos, a very expensive brand of tennis shoes and a new cellular telephone equipped with her favorite R&B tune for a ringtone. Glancing over the chart, one could not help noticing her payer status: Medicaid. She smokes more than one costly pack of cigarettes every day and, somehow, still has money to buy beer.

And our Congress expects me to pay for this woman's health care? Our nation's health care crisis is not a shortage of quality hospitals, doctors or nurses. It is a crisis of culture — a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable to spend money on vices while refusing to take care of one's self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance. A culture that thinks "I can do whatever I want to because someone else will always take care of me". Life is really not that hard. Most of us reap what we sow.

Don't you agree?

Statement of Tea Party Values

What are the values of the Tea Party? Here is a simple statement about them that you can send to your newspaper editor. Time to dispel the rumors of Tea Party AWOL, dead, etc. In short, "Rumors of our death are greatly exaggerated."

THIS IS US:

To the Editor,
 
The 2012 federal elections are the most important elections in a generation. Americans will be deciding whether to stay true to the principles of our Founders or take a turn towards the European socialist system we see collapsing across the Atlantic. 
 
Since 2009, the Tea Party has opposed overspending from both parties, and supported a return to the Constitution. As a member of Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest Tea Party organization, I encourage your readers to consider the following when they go into the booth on November 6:
1.     Fiscal Responsibility: balancing the budget will prevent us from being like Greece, Portugal, Ireland, and Spain.

2.     Free markets will encourage competition which will spark innovation and economic growth to help get people back to work.

3.     Constitutionally-limited government will stop overreaches by the federal government, in everything from economically harmful regulations to unconstitutional TSA screenings.

4.     The President’s health care law increases federal spending, moves the decision making power from the doctor/patient relationship to the federal government, and violates the First Amendment rights of all Americans. It should be overturned by Congress.
America is the greatest nation the world has ever seen, and I believe it is important we continue this legacy. The core principles of Tea Party Patriots will allow us to move forward in a positive direction.

Trevor Loudon: New Zeal Blog - Spooks In The Machine Speak Up

Posted: 07 Oct 2012 10:34 AM PDT
NoisyRoom
By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
 
Obama’s terrorist chickens are coming home to roost. And while Rice tries to blame the intelligence community on the Benghazi atrocity, agents are telling a different tale that has the ring of truth. Something that our current administration shuns at every available opportunity. Behold the blame game:
“Elements of the intelligence community apparently told the administration within hours of the attack that militants connected with al Qaeda were involved, yet Ambassador Rice claims her comments five days later reflected the ‘best’ and ‘current’ assessment of the intelligence community. Either the Obama administration is misleading Congress and the American people, or it is blaming the entire failure on the intelligence community,” the senators said in a joint response to Rice’s letter today.
I do not believe the intelligence community is the right target here. It is the Obama administration and their chumminess with the Muslim Brotherhood.


Obama’s ‘Blood on My Hands’ Flag
I am going to ask the same question that Glenn Beck is asking… why?
  • Why was Ambassador Stevens in the most dangerous part of Benghazi with no protection? Was he brokering arms deals with the rebels/terrorists? Was he working for the CIA? There was an alarming rise in al Qaeda activity before the murders and no one said a word.
  • Why were ex-Navy SEALs killed trying to protect Stevens? (Those SEALs were there trying to recover weapons from al Qaeda.) I know they died bravely in the line of duty, running to the aid of Stevens – but where were those that should have protected Stevens? From what I understand, a private security detail was ordered – where was the military?
  • Why did Obama claim that it was being investigated when it wasn’t? Over three weeks later, investigators are on their way. The entire scene is now compromised and they know it. Telling signs of violent assault and torture were in that compound – bloody hand prints on the walls, a toilet covered in blood. Did you know that CNN found Stevens’ journal on the ground in the compound days after the event?
  • Why are important facts not being disseminated? For instance, did you know that our consulate there was bombed twice before Stevens was killed? Did you know that there had been 13 violent incidents, 5 serious, before the murders? Did you know that the British Red Cross pulled out because of the violence? Did you know that radicals had posted Stevens’ jogging route on Facebook before he was murdered? And why didn’t our government know? Why?
  • Is this whole thing part of the Muslim Brotherhood agenda aided by Barack Obama and his administration? Did you know that the terrorists were upset before July when the YouTube clip originally aired and that is one of the reasons Obama was meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi? Did you know they discussed releasing the Blind Sheikh?
  • Why were repeated requests for security in Benghazi denied by the State department?
  • Did you know a prime suspect in the murder of Ambassador Stevens and the others was a terrorist released from an Egyptian prison during the Arab Spring?
  • Did you know that over 20 American embassies have been attacked since the incident?
Now career officials in the Intelligence community are beginning to stand up and scream ‘cover-up’ at Obama and his goons, and rightly so. This is an epic scandal that the press has barely covered involving the exploding rise of terrorism in North Africa, opting instead for Obama fundraisers with celebrities and Lady Gaga escapades. The DC Pravda will do literally anything to take attention off the Middle East and the economy. Anything… and they think we are dumb enough to believe it.
General Zateb Kazim: Don’t worry. It’s Africa. Nobody cares about Africa.
It would appear that Iran has been very naughty indeed and has had their grubby, apocalyptic fingers in a number of Middle Eastern pies including Egypt and Libya, among numerous others. This has been going on for a long time by the way – even if we don’t think we are at war with Iran, they are at war with us. Do the math and you better include nukes and EMPs.
From the Free Beacon/Bill Gertz:
“The Iranian strategy is two-fold: upping the ante for the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against Iran and perceived cyber operations against Iran’s nuclear weapons program by conducting terror attacks on soft U.S. targets and cyber attacks against U.S. financial interests,” said one official, speaking confidentially.
The Iranian effort also seeks to take the international community’s spotlight off Iran’s support for its Syrian ally.
Two House Republicans, Reps. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) and Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), stated in a letter sent this week to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that officials “with direct knowledge of events in Libya” revealed that the Benghazi attack was part of a string of terror attacks and not a spontaneous uprising against an anti-Muslim video produced in the U.S. The lawmakers have scheduled congressional hearings for Oct. 10.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice knowingly put out false information on the Benghazi murders blaming the whole incident on a crappy YouTube clip that had nothing to do with it. I believe she was instructed by her ‘higher ups’ to do so. Hillary Clinton has distanced herself from all of this after coming out and acknowledging that it was a preplanned terrorist attack by al Qaeda using the group Ansar al Sharia. Which by the way, a 3 year-old could have figured out since it was carried out on 9-11. Obama has seriously overestimated the stupidity and apathy of Americans in his haughty elitism. He would do well to remember this is not France. We brought him into office and we can remove him from office and will do so in November.
When Clinton fessed up to terrorism, she left out a couple of important details:
“What she failed to mention was the cooperation of Iran and Egypt in supporting jihadists in Libya,” the official said, who added the events would be investigated in an apparent effort to stave off internal critics in government.
That has led to delays in getting FBI and other U.S. investigators into Benghazi, raising concerns that some in the White House wanted to delay the FBI’s efforts to uncover evidence about the attack.
Yes, Obama is staying true to his Muslim roots, the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran. Instead of defeating al Qaeda, Obama is aiding them and the Muslim Brotherhood in their agenda and expansion. Color me surprised. Still not convinced? Well try this on for size:
Intelligence officials said in Egypt—currently ruled by the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood—one of the key al Qaeda organizers has been identified as Muhammad al-Zawahiri, brother of al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. Muhammad al-Zawahiri was released by Morsi in March after having been sentenced to death for terrorist acts in Egypt.
In recent months Egypt-based al Qaeda terrorists were dispatched to Libya and Syria, where they have been covertly infiltrating Libyan militia groups and Syrian opposition forces opposing the Bashar al Assad regime.
In addition to Egyptian government backing, intelligence from the region has revealed that operatives from Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security, the main spy service, and from Iran’s Quds Force paramilitary group and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps are also facilitating al Qaeda terrorists based in Egypt that are preparing to conduct operations to increase instability throughout the region.
You don’t have to be a spook or a military genius to see what is going on here folks. As the scandal grows, Congress wants answers:
The subpoena compels Lt. Col. Wood to appear at a House Oversight Committee hearing next week that will examine security decisions leading up to the Sept. 11 Muslim extremist terror assault on the U.S. compound at Benghazi. U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three of his colleagues were killed in the attack.
Lt. Col. Wood has told CBS News and congressional investigators that his 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force called a Mobile Security Deployment team left Libya in August, just one month before the Benghazi assault. Wood says that’s despite the fact that US officials in Libya wanted security increased, not decreased.
Intelligence and military officials are beginning to come forward and expose what is going on in the Obama administration. A deafening chorus of crickets can be widely heard from the media as they try to cover Obama’s arse in an election year. But I believe his arse has now grown too big for the oval chair, which explains why it spends so much time empty. While spooks in the machine speak up, Americans need to prepare for the biggest scandal we have ever experienced in an administration. It’s the Obama legacy.

            •  Outlets that include both domestic and international news media; and

Seven Incredible Personal Stories About Mitt Romney That You May Not Know

Incredible Personal Stories About Mitt Romney


Over the last few months, it has been absolutely stunning to see Mitt Romney, of all people, portrayed as some sort of greedy, ruthless, unfeeling corporate raider who plows over everyone who gets in his way so he can make a few dollars more. Of all the criticisms you could aim at Mitt Romney, there is none that has less validi
ty than that one. In fact, the vast majority of people who read this column -- whether they're liberal, conservative, or moderate -- probably don't personally know a single person who has proven to be more generous and compassionate than Mitt Romney. Yes, really. It's okay if you're skeptical -- but, you won't be after you finish reading this column.

1) Mitt Romney saved the life of a 14 year old girl: Imagine what it would be like if we could have this kind of decisive people-centered leadership in the White House..

In 1998 the 14-year-old daughter of one of Romney's partners at Bain Capital, Robin Gay, had disappeared after attending a rave party in New York City. The distraught father was beside himself with terror of what may have happened to his little girl.

Upon hearing of this, Romney stopped all operations at Bain and flew himself and all of the company's employees to New York to conduct the search. Using his contacts with establishments in New York that did business with Bain and an outlay of cash, Romney led a search for the girl from a command post he had set up in the LaGuardia Marriott that involved a private detective, Bain employees and customers putting up posters, handing out flyers, and interviewing prostitutes, drug addicts, and other street people in New York, and coordination with the New York Police.

A break came, after media publicity of the search, when a teenage boy called a tip line asking if there was a reward. He hung up, but not before the police traced the call to a home in New Jersey. The girl was found in the basement of the house undergoing withdrawals from a hit of ecstasy.

Romney, through his efforts, had saved the girl's life.

2) Mitt Romney gave milk to a V.A. hospital: This is the kind of thing Mitt Romney has done for people in need who cross his path.

He shared a story of a V.A. hospital in Boston that Mitt Romney stopped at while on the campaign trail running against Ted Kennedy. Ted Kennedy had made a thirty minute stop at the same location a couple of weeks prior.
 
 After touring the V.A. hospital, Mitt asked to look at their books. After he spent forty minutes going through their books, he told them, “You run a very good place, very tight. Very good.” Romney asked to go on another tour of the hospital, and after spending an hour and forty minutes there, the last question he asked was, “So what… what do you -- what are you lacking? What do you need help with?”

The response? “Milk.”

Since the press was around, snapping photos and asking questions, Glenn explained that Romney did a really awkward joke where he said, “maybe we should teach everyone here how to milk a cow.”

Of course, that’s all the press cared to hear and ran with a story that claims “Mitt Romney says veterans should have to milk cows.”

“This is where it gets good,” Glenn started. “Romney calls him up the next morning.”

Romney first apologizes to the man who runs the hospital for any problems the attention from the press jumping on his words brought to the hospital. He next offers to help with the milk situation.

“Friday comes, and the milkman comes,” Glenn continues. “This is what the vets needed – they needed 7,000 pints of milk a week. Milkman shows up, 7,000 pints. The head of the V.A. hospital asks, ‘Where did all this come from?’ He [the milkman] said ‘an anonymous donor.’ Now, the guy didn’t put it together.”

Glenn explains that when the next week rolled around, the milkman shows up again, and continued to show up every week for two years. After two years of delivering 7,000 pints of milk a week to the hospital, as the milkman is retiring, the man finally gets him to reveal the anonymous donor.

It’s Mitt Romney.

“Mitt Romney was writing a personal check and didn’t want anybody to know for two years and provided the vets with all of their milk in Boston,” Glenn explained to listeners this morning.

When Romney became governor, he sent a bill through to help the V.A. hospital – it was down to the dollar.

3) Mitt Romney helped a dying 14 year old boy write his will: In a profession filled with people who steal the credit for every good thing that happens and pass the buck at every opportunity, Mitt Romney's humility -- which is a wonderful trait in a human being, but a maladaptive one in a politician -- has kept him from hammering home stories like this in every swing state.

Pat Oparowski talks about the loving friendship Mitt Romney developed with her dying son David, remembering,

"David, knowing Mitt had gone to law school at Harvard, asked Mitt if he would help him write a will. He had some prize possessions that he wanted to make sure were given to his closest friends and family. The next time Mitt went to the hospital, he was equipped with his yellow legal pad and pen. Together, they made David’s will. That is a task that no child should ever have to do. But it gave David peace of mind. So after David’s death, we were able to give his skateboard, his model rockets, and his fishing gear to his best friends. He also made it clear that his brother Peter should get his Ruger .22 rifle. How many men do you know who would take the time out of their busy lives to visit a terminally ill 14 year old and help him settle his affairs?"

David also helped us plan his funeral. He wanted to be buried in his Boy Scout uniform. He wanted Mitt to pronounce his eulogy, and Mitt was there to honor that request. We will be ever grateful to Mitt for his love and concern.”

Ted Oparowski summed it up nicely when he said,"Do not measure a man’s character based on the words he utters before adoring crowds during times that are happy. The true measure of a man is revealed in his actions during times of trouble — the quiet hospital room of a dying boy, with no cameras and no reporters."

4) At one point, Mitt Romney was doing 10-20 hours a week of volunteer church service: At the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney's friend and fellow church member Grant Bennett talked about the Mitt Romney he knew.

While raising his family and pursuing his career, Mitt Romney served in our church, devoting 10, 15, and even 20 hours a week doing so. ...Drawing on the skills and resources of those in our congregation, Mitt provided food and housing, rides to the doctor, and companions to sit with those who were ill. He shoveled snow and raked leaves for the elderly. He took down tables and swept floors at church dinners. He was often the last to leave. Mitt challenged each of us to find our life by losing it in service to others. He issued that challenge again and again.
 
What do you think the chances are that the current occupant of the White House would voluntarily shovel snow and rake leaves for the elderly without any television cameras around?

5) Pam Finlayson talks about how Mitt Romney treated her family and her extremely ill child: Pam Finlayson gave one of the finest speeches at the Republican National Convention when she talked about her family's experience with Mitt Romney.

Later, when Finlayson and her husband Grant had a baby girl born dangerously premature, the man who decades later would stand at the threshold of the presidency was a steady and supportive presence at the hospital.
 
“Kate was so tiny and very sick,” Finlayson recalled. “Her lungs not yet ready to breathe, her heart unstable, and after suffering a severe brain hemorrhage at three days old, she was teetering on the very edge of life.”

“As I sat with her in intensive care, consumed with a mother’s worry and fear, dear Mitt came to visit and pray with me,” she continued, as the partisan crowd listened in rapt silence. “I will never forget that when he looked down tenderly at my daughter, his eyes filled with tears, and he reached out gently and stroked her tiny back.”

“I could tell immediately that he didn’t just see a tangle of plastic and tubes; he saw our beautiful little girl, and he was clearly overcome with compassion for her.”

The little girl was slated for surgery around Thanksgiving, and Finlayson recalled Romney and his sons showing up with a Thanksgiving feast for the preoccupied parents. Finlayson said she later learned from Ann Romney that the food had been prepared by her husband.

Kate Finlayson survived, and the two families remained close, said Finlayson, who even babysat for the five “rambunctious” Romney sons before the family moved from Boston.

Last year, Kate Finlayson died at age 26 from complications she’d battled from birth, her mom said. And although Romney was in the midst of preparing his bid for the presidency, they remembered their old friends in yet another hour of anguish.

“When they heard of Kate’s passing, both Mitt and Ann paused, to personally reach out to extend us sympathy, and express their love,” Finlayson said.

“When the world looks at Mitt Romney, they see him as the founder of a successful business, the leader of the Olympics, or a governor,” she said. “When I see Mitt, I know him to be a loving father, man of faith and caring and compassionate friend."

6) Mitt Romney and his sons saved a family and their dog from drowning: Mitt Romney saw people in trouble and he didn't wait for the government to save them, he made a REAL gutsy call, and did what he had to do to save their lives.

But way back in the summer of 2003, the then-Massachusetts governor made the news for a very different reason: He helped save a Tewksbury family from drowning in New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee.

The Morrisseys of Tewksbury were motoring their vintage wooden boat through the large lake on July 4 weekend that year when, around sunset and about 300 yards from shore, the vessel began taking on water. Robert Morrissey attempted to dial 911 on his cell phone, only to lose the device in the water as the boat started sinking rapidly.

That’s when Romney, who owns a home on the shore of the lake, and two of his sons jumped on jet skis and rode out to assist the six people, along with the family dog, struggling in the water.

The Romneys took two of the passengers ashore, and others in the area helped the rest of the family—and the dog, too — make it back to land without injury.

7) Mitt Romney pays for the college education of two boys who were left as quadriplegics after a car wreck: As you read this, imagine how you'd feel about Mitt Romney if you were Mark and Sheryl Nixon. Americans would be fortunate to have someone like Mitt Romney doing his best to try to help them.

Mark and Sheryl Nixon, along with their sons Reed and Rob and their daughter Natalie, told of a car accident that left Reed and Rob quadriplegics. Although the Nixon family knew of Romney and Romney had served as their Mormon stake president, they weren't well acquainted.

Reed and Rob returned home from rehab in the late fall, near Christmas, Mark said. Around that time, Romney called and said he'd like to do something for the two boys. So Romney, his wife Ann, and three of their sons brought Christmas gifts to the family.

While Romney later offered to pay for Reed and Rob's entire college education, that Christmas Eve visit stands out in Mark's mind, he said, because instead of vacationing in Utah, New England or the Caribbean, the Romney family was visiting the needy.

"That actually, to me, has been more important to me than the financial help he gave," Mark said.

"After the initial experience of showing up, he didn't check that off his list and say, 'I did my duty,'" Natalie added. "He has, year after year, shown up at 5K races to run the event and participate."

A New Cold War - and who has figured out the treason

"A New Cold War" 

 http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/a-brand-new-cold-war/

Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa is the highest-ranking Soviet-bloc official ever to defect to the West. In December 1989, Romanian President Nicolae Ceausescu was executed at the end of a trial whose accusations came almost word-for-word out of Pacepa’s book, “Red Horizons,” subsequently republished in 27 countries.

"The view that the latest wave of Muslim outrage worldwide, including the murderous assault on the U.S. embassy in Libya and new threats from Iran, is somehow a “spontaneous” reaction to the low-budget film “Innocence of Muslims,” has been revealed to be political naïveté at best, and ignorant or intentional scapegoating at worst.

After all, even the president of Libya, Yousef El-Magariaf, stated that “no doubt” the attack had been “preplanned,” emphasizing that the terrorists had chosen a “specific date for this so-called demonstration.”

However, the day of our ambassador’s murder, Sept. 11, 2012, also happened to be the very day the Kremlin celebrated a significant anniversary – 125 years since the birth of Feliks Dzerzhinsky, the founder of the KGB, now rechristened FSB."



http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/a-brand-new-cold-war/

In 1972, I had a breakfast with then-KGB chairman Yury Andropov in Moscow. The Kremlin, he told me, had decided to transform Arab anti-Semitism into an anti-American doctrine for the whole Muslim world. The idea was to portray the United States as a war-mongering, Zionist country financed by Jewish money and run by a rapacious “Council of the Elders of Zion” (the KGB’s derisive epithet for the U.S. Congress) intent on transforming the rest of the world into a Jewish fiefdom. Andropov made the point that one billion adversaries could cause far greater damage than could a mere 150 million. Even Muhammad, he said, had not limited his religion to Arab countries.
The KGB boss described the Muslim world as a waiting petri dish, in which we could nurture a strain of hate-America, grown from the bacterium of Marxist-Leninist thought. Islamic anti-Semitism ran deep, he said. The Muslims had a taste for nationalism, jingoism and victimology, and their illiterate, oppressed mobs could easily be whipped up to a fever pitch. We had only to keep repeating, over and over, that the United States was a war-mongering, Zionist country anxious to take over the whole world.

The KGB community threw millions of dollars and thousands of people into that gigantic project. Before I left Romania for good in 1978, my Romanian espionage service alone had sent some 500 undercover agents to various Islamic countries. Most of them were religious servants, engineers, medical doctors, teachers and art instructors. According to a rough estimate received from Moscow, by 1978 the whole Soviet bloc intelligence community had sent around 4,000 such agents of influence to the Islamic world.

How much influence did this effort have? No one can say for sure, but over 20-plus years of cumulative effect through disseminating millions of Arabic translations of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in Arabic throughout the Islamic world and portraying the United States as a criminal Zionist surrogate should have made some dent. Witness the 1979 takeover of the U.S. embassy in Tehran, the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York, the 1998 destruction of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the atrocious September 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S. itself, which killed almost 3,000 Americans.

Top Soviet-bloc defector: Marxism infecting U.S.
'Americans are not blind. They just do not really know what Marxism is'

Learn from those who do know.

At least one group has it figured out

And that's likely because, more than anyone else, they've had to work under his, ahem, leadership:
The Obama campaign had been hoping that veterans and their families — especially among the post-Sept. 11 generation that served in Iraq and Afghanistan — would be part of their path to victory: They’re a high turn-out demographic and concentrated in battleground states, with nearly 1 million each in North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia, and 1.6 million in Florida.
But recent polls make clear that the president’s campaign is losing the battle. Even as Obama leads in Colorado, Florida, Ohio and Virginia, Mitt Romney is up by double digits among veterans in those states. Nationwide, he’s got a commanding 20-percentage-point lead over Obama and has overtaken the president with younger veterans.
“It’s no contest,” said Maurice Tamman, a Reuters data news editor who has polled on veterans and the presidential campaign.
It is no contest.  The military community knows leaders, and the current C-i-C is no leader.

Jihadists Complain To UN About Silly Film No One Has Seen


Mychal Massie, The Daily Rant:

It's being reported that the leaders of Muslim nations are telling the U.N. General Assembly that it should take up debate to make what they (Muslims) deem offensive, sanctionable.  That's right the pot wants the kettle held accountable for insulting Muhammad, their so-called prophet.

Their suggestion is empirical proof of how far they would attempt to go to silence free speech.  They sorta' remind me of Obama though he is a Neo-Leninist not a Muslim.

But I digress.

This is America and we reserve the right to say and insult whom we choose.  We have a document called the Bill of Rights.  Contained within same there are certain findings called Amendments.  The very first of these, appropriately enough called "The First Amendment," provides one of our most basic and fundamental Constitutional rights.

It is the "Right To Freedom Of Speech."

So take a hike Muslim leaders and U.N. General Assembly.  I reserve the right to use whatever language I please when referencing a pagan, pedophile heathen that conned his way into being a prophet.

How about Muslims stop butchering and murdering Coptic Christians and stop preaching world-wide conquest?  How about they stop calling for death to Israel?  How about they take some oil money and make really-really-really big donations to each family who lost someone on 9/11?  How about they call a press-conference that will be transmitted to the world from the U.N., and confess to all of the acts of terrorism committed world-wide in the name of their make-believe god, and apologize and promise that they will work to ensure not another such incident takes place?

That said, none of the aforementioned would be enough for me to give up my "Right To Free Speech."  Because if I give that up what will I have to give up next?  Will it be my right to freedom of worship and/or will it be my right to own and bear arms?

I say their suggestion is a slick way to deceive the world into capitulating to Islam.  I say, I'll stop telling the truth about Muhammad and his depraved debaucherous ways when Muslims stop lying about him.

Public Officials Wake UP! EnvironMENTALism Is All About Control


Public Officials Must Learn About Agenda 21

-- and the roots of the power structure which  hijacked the legitimate environmental movement 60 years ago.


One of Henry Lamb's last articles is perhaps one of his best. Calling on public officials to educate themselves and to take responsibility to shake off the environmental agenda, Lamb states in unequivocal truth the failure of officials' head-in-sand approach and the dire state of our situation.

"Elected officials must learn what Agenda 21 is before opening their mouths and revealing their ignorance."

Lamb educates by refuting one public official's public statements -- statements which reveal a shocking lack of even the most basic grasp of what UN Agenda 21 is and how it came about.



 In this particular article, Lamb is focused laser-like on the public official's erroneous statements. To understand just how ignorant this official is, and how prevalent  (and dangerous) is the head-in-sand approach by electeds as well as bureaucrats and judges, watch this short video about the roots of the power structure that hijacked the legitimate environmental movement in the 1960s.

Now, re-read Lamb's article about the roots of UN Agenda 21. Consider the timing of these events, just four years after that meeting in Italy.

"Agenda 21 was developed over a period of time, traceable from the 1972 U.N. Conference on the Environment, which identified “environmental protection” as the world’s greatest problem, and gave the world the U.N. Environmental Programme,  followed almost immediately by Nixon’s Executive Order that created the EPA.

Then came the 1976 U.N. Conference on Human Settlements, signed by the U.S., which proclaimed that “Public control of land use is…indispensible.”  The next major step was the creation of the U.N. World Commission on Environment and Development in 1983, chaired by Gro Harlem Brundtland.  The commission issued its final report in 1987, called Our Common Future.  This document produced the concept and defined the term “Sustainable Development” to be:  “Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

This rather ambiguous definition was spelled out in great detail in a 40-chapter, 300-page document titled Agenda 21, signed and adopted by 179 nations in 1992 (not 1993) at the U.N. Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro."

Some interesting facts: 
  • The UN Conference on the Environment was held in the same year, 1972, that the Club of Rome released its "Limits To Growth" which had its stated objective of decreasing global population and ridding the world of "useless eaters". 
  • Gro Bruntland was a socialist and head of Norway's government in the mid-eighties.
  • George Herbert Walker Bush signed the US on to UN Agenda 21 in 1992, at the UNCED in Rio. 


Patriotic Jew- Collapse of the American Media

Collapse of the American Media
 
The corrupt mainstream media continues to be derelict of its duty in reporting accurate/fair news to the American people, and they are no longer even trying to hide, or conceal the fact that they have become willing participants of the Obama re-election campaign. The media now fully operates as an extension of the Obama administration, and there is a daily coordinated effort to distract, distort, and divert attention away from Obama’s failed economy & disastrous foreign policy in a deliberate attempt to keep the focus on smearing Mitt Romney in whatever means possible. They have to discredit & disqualify Mitt Romney because Obama simply cannot run based on his abysmal Presidential record alone which has been an epic failure, and he needs his media minions to do his bidding for him. The Marxist-Media complex having essentially merged with the Democratic Party, and this should send cold chills down every American’s spine, since government-media mergers are a key component for all tyrannical governments, and a necessary step for a nation that seeks to transform into Socialism/Communism. It is essential for the government to have complete dominion over the media in order to control the messaging/narrative of the way the news is being reported to ensure that they spin propaganda which favors government interests instead of protecting the uniformed citizens who sheepishly follow along. The entire goal of the “Obama Mania Media” is to advance the “Progressive Agenda” while simultaneously discrediting the opposition party with a relentless bombardment of negative news coverage, silencing dissenting voices that aren’t in lock-step with their ideology, and essentially demonizing all opposition that stands in the way of their objectives. The media in America has long been in bed with the Democratic Party, but what we are now witnessing is a complete metamorphosis into Socialism. The deception & manipulation which is occurring right here in America at this very moment is truly horrifying, and we are dangerously close to losing our free Republic unless “We The People” rise above this lunacy, and fight for our American ideals before it’s too late.

HUD Spends $70 Million to Teach You How To Spend $10 Million In HUD Grant Awards

Why We Don't Want Our Officials To Accept Grant Money from HUD

HUD Spends $70 Million to Teach Grant Winners to Spend Grant Money

Nothing is FREE.

IN NJ, HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Grant to 13 Northern NJ Counties, including Morris,Sussex,Warren and Hunterdon,  will increase your Taxes. Nothing is FREE.

$70 million to teach NJ how to spend $10 million. WOW

This will cost Northern New Jersey and the central counties of Monmouth and Ocean plenty in new "fees", "fines", higher energy costs, more bond debt, and of course, outright taxes. 


Written by Lincoln Brown
June 11 2012:

And once again, cue Rod Serling, standing jauntily to one side of your television frame in glorious black and white, a wisp of smoke curing from his cigarette. “Picture a nation going on a journey,” he says “a journey which will take that nation into an undiscovered country of fiscal insanity where less is more and more is better. You have just crossed over into The Spending Zone.”

Where is Rod when we need him? Creepy atmospheric music aside, the federal government truly has crossed a threshold which in most people’s wildest dreams would never have appeared on the horizon, even in this administration. Housing and Urban Development announced that it will spend 70 million dollars to teach its grant recipients how to spend to their grant money. It has come to that. We are spending money to teach people how to spend money. The full story is here.

HUD spokesman Brian Sullivan explained that the extra 70 million will be used to amplify existing community development block grants, also known as CDBGs. CDBG money is used for brick and mortar projects such as low affordable housing development, or improving the homes of the elderly or low income families. Some projects may include ADA improvements, and energy efficiency efforts.

The new money will be used to help communities target where they will spend CDBG funds. HUD feels that communities may not be thinking broadly enough in terms of CDBG funding, and that the cash infusion will help them to look at projects regionally by connecting them with nearby jurisdictions. The Minnesota Housing Partnership will get 2 million of that money to provide assistance to other HUD grant recipients in making the most of HUD grants. So the Partnership will receive HUD money to teach other jurisdictions how to use HUD money. Some of the things with which the Partnership will assist these other entities are economic development, construction management infrastructure, sustainable design, organizational development and natural resource protection.

Resource protection? Since when is HUD in the business of protecting natural resources? I suppose the more pertinent question is in this administration, why wouldn’t it be? 

What is noteworthy is that local communities usually have a pretty good handle on things like economic development, construction management infrastructure, sustainable design, organizational development and natural resource protection. In fact, local governments probably have a better handle on these things than the federal government or its appointed agents. I have sat in on local CDBG hearings and have noticed that not only do the local governments do a good job of identifying projects, but I have seen them enlist the public for its input on where the money might best be spent.
But, if you take the King’s shilling, you do the King’s willing. In this case, the King is interested in spending more money to teach people the proper way to spend money, and has added another layer of bureaucracy to the process. It is possible that now, before a local government decides how CDBG money will be allocated, it will first have to consult with its technical advisory team before putting a shovel in the dirt. And if that agency is in fact representing the federal government, will it have the final say on what projects will be done, which contractors will be hired, and whether or not a proposed project will harm a wetlands, watershed or endangered species habitat? If so, it is conceivable that the local governments, who know where the need for funding is the greatest will have to wait until their projects, plans, contractors, architects and infrastructure all meet with government approval before work begins. And if past performance is in any way indicative of future results, is there any way to gauge how big the government oversight on something like this will get, and how many other programs will suddenly find themselves under this new umbrella?

If a city or county chooses to avail itself of HUD money it has every right to do so. But HUD should recognize that no one knows the lay of the land better than the locals. And it should allow them to decide the best way to utilize that funding. A grant to teach people how to spend grants sounds suspiciously like a Trojan Horse for big government.
