While many conservative voters obsess over the unholy trinity of elected big liberalism — Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid — but the real threat to our liberties and way of life is unelected ‘big bureaucracy.’

 

 

 

 

Unelected bureaucrats are who have persecuted Tea Parties, conservative donors, adoptive parents, True the Vote, Boeing’s non-union plant, the Christian Coalition, Focus on the Family, select GM dealerships, and God knows who else over the past few years. And this week, we’ve met the three stooges of the big bureau; Steven Miller, Loris Lerner, and Sarah Hall Ingram. Collectively, they paint an accurate picture of what we face.

Wow! I experienced it first hand. I wrote an article defending the biblical take on an issue. The mainstream media misquoted me – took my words out of context to portray me as someone I am not – a rabid hater.

Recklessly, without reading my original article to learn what I actually said, several news sources re-printed a reporter’s distortion of my article.Folks, I have no problem standing up for what I believe or even being hated for it. But, the media had thousands hating me for something I never said. Associates became nervous about being associated with me. Public figures began denouncing me.

 

 

It was a very stressful situation. My stress did not come from the Left hating me.

The left has never really known what to do with the Tea Party. In the beginning of our movement, the left was quick to deny the very existence of our grassroots efforts, calling it “Astroturf” — the product of evil, corporate interests that, somehow, were financing every handmade sign being waved across the country.

On January 28, 2013, a group of Republicans in Congress decided to close down the Republican Party. Their “going out of business sale” involves converting an estimated 12 to 20 million trespassing illegal aliens into solidly-Democrat voters. Republicans will ensure Democrat control of Congress and the White House with millions of new voters for generations to come.

The Real Origin of the Tea Party Movement

August 8, 2012 Leave a comment

 

I recently read with joy a conservative blogger’s attempt to connect the TEA party movement to its historic roots; a topic I have been meaning to write about for months now. The blogger rightly said that the “the historical precedent for the TPM wasn’t the Tea Party event in Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773.” I actually uttered an “Amen, brother!” He went on to describe the Continental Association established on October 20, 1774 by the First Continental Congress in response to the Intolerable Acts.

Exclusive – The Vetting – Barack Obama, the First Tea Partier

May 23, 2012 1 comment

In 2009, President Barack Obama reportedly called members of the Tea Party “teabaggers.” It turns out that our fourth greatest president, first in so many things, may have been the first “teabagger” himself, as seen in the 1997 photograph above. Yes, that really is Barack Obama wearing a regimental coat and carrying a tricorn hat in his hand. And that flag behind him really is a Gadsden flag, with its serpent and its “Don’t Tread On Me” slogan. You may want to let all of this sink in a bit, especially if you’re a Tea Party-bashing progressive.

Neither Democrats nor the media have been particularly kind to the Tea Party. There is hardly space to go through all the times the Tea Party has been compared to terrorists (including by the Vice President) or fascists, or the many times it has been accused of racism by progressives in supposedly mainstream news outlets. That’s a book-length story of it’s own.

(“You don’t need the mainstream media, FOXNews, the conservative blogosphere or even Canada Free Press (CFP) to tell you that Obama has the deck of cards stacked against any realistic hope of relieving him from office”) Surviving Obama’s reelection…

March 1, 2012 1 comment

Ask yourself this question: What am I going to do if Barack Obama is celebrating electoral victory on November 7, 2012?

It’s a question anyone who cares about America dreads to probe but one that still needs asking.

The possibility of a Soetoro-Obama in the White House after November 6 is as real as Big Government chiseling away at individual freedoms and changing the fabric of the America we all love.

No one likes to be the Corner Cassandra advancing the imminent arrival of bad news.

The media—even news outlets ostensibly on the side of We the People—keep the masses on information overload in the changing-by-the-minute Game of Politics, an unfortunate set of circumstances ordinary folk have to go wading through in an era already dominated by Marxist projection.

No matter how persistent the pundits, we don’t really know whether Rick Santorum is any better than the other Republican presidential candidates. We are only hoping through our faith that he is. We do not know for certain whether any of the candidates, even the one forced on voters by the Republican establishment is capable of defeating a president hellbent on the fundamental Transformation of America.

All we know for certain is that no one, nothing has stopped Obama from taking America from what it was to something unrecognizable.

We do know that the Tea Party made significant, and even breathtaking gains by shellacking the Democrat Party in midterm elections, but know, too that there has been no real significant change ever since……

EXCERPT

No one, not even the Tea Party Movement has been able to put an effective stop to Obama’s continued trashing of America.

For the sake of all that will come thereafter, we need to examine the harsh reality of another four years of a czar-studded Obama regime driving the USA into the same kind of statism that has failed every where it has ever been enforced.

You don’t need the mainstream media, FOXNews, the conservative blogosphere or even Canada Free Press (CFP) to tell you that Obama has the deck of cards stacked against any realistic hope of relieving him from office.

Georgia Tea Parties’ Police Targets GOP

Posted on Tuesday, December 13, 2011 8:38:55 AM by Billlknowles

A few years ago, I was an early, enthusiastic supporter of the Tea Party movement. Its essential belief in limited government and individual freedom form the core of conservative principles. The group’s message of low taxes, deficit reduction and fidelity to the Constitution resonated with me.

However, my Tea Partying days are over.

The shot gun wedding between the Tea Party and the Republican Party after the 2010 midterm election has been consummated. It definitely wasn’t a match made in heaven.

Unelected Tea Party police chieftains are calling the shots. They demand acquiescence to their agenda and intimidate Republican officeholders adhere to it or face a primary challenge.

Congress (Approval 13%) – America’s Legalized Criminal Institution

Posted on Friday, December 09, 2011 6:32:22 PM by TLittlefella

A recent Gallup poll (November 2011) indicated only 13% of Americans approved

the job our Congress was doing.

Approve 13%

Disapprove 82%

No Opinion 5%

There is little doubt, given the opportunity, those 82% of Americans that disapprove of

the job Congress is doing would replace them all in a heartbeat.

There have been a lot of books detailing the corruption, arrogance, and incompetence of

our Congress. All those books suggest the 82% disapproval rate is well deserved. Read

any of the following books and if you are in the 13% or 5% percent category you will

quickly join the 82% disapproval category.

The Tea Party Faces The Fear

For conservative Republicans—those falling under the Tea Party umbrella, broadly-conceived—this is 4:00am. The Fear is setting in. “What if Obama wins? What if we nominate someone who can’t defeat him? What if we stand on principle with our favorite conservative candidate, and end up damaging the man who will, in all likelihood, actually be our representative in the presidential election? Isn’t it too late to hope to change the race in favor of the best conservative? Mustn’t we settle for what we can get this time around?”

When the 2012 Republican nominating contest was getting underway earlier this year, it was widely predicted (I predicted it myself) that the race would eventually come down to a contest between an establishment candidate like Mitt Romney or Tim Pawlenty, and a Tea Party candidate more appealing to the party’s base. It seemed perfectly reasonable at the time; after all, the Tea Party had energized the GOP and propelled it to the historic 2010 congressional election victory.

Is GOP Absorbing the Tea Party, or Is the Establishment Toppling? (GOP wants to “control” you)

Sunshine State News ^ | 2011-10-20 | Kenric Ward

Posted on Sunday, October 30, 2011 11:32:59 AM by rabscuttle385

Is the GOP co-opting the tea party movement, or are tea partiers taking down the establishment and sending the RINOs packing?

A lengthy New York Times magazine article this week quoted several establishment Republicans crowing over what they see as the demise of the two-year-old tea party activism.

Bill Kristol, the neoconservative editor of the Weekly Standard and a Fox News contributor, said the tea party peddles “an infantile form of conservatism.”

Veteran Republican strategist Scott Reed took the disdain one step further, saying the GOP is steadily co-opting the grass-roots movement.

“That’s the secret to politics: trying to control a segment of people without those people recognizing that you’re trying to control them,” Reed said of the GOP’s assimilation strategy.

The Tea Party Movement, Republicans, and Ron Paul by Jack Kerwick

October 18, 2011 1 comment

Supposedly, the Tea Party movement is not affiliated with either of our two national political parties. Rather, it is composed of millions of ordinary Americans who, jealous as they are of the liberties bequeathed to them by their progenitors, find intolerable the gargantuan proportions to which the federal government has grown.

This, at any rate, is the conventional account of the genesis and character of the Tea Party movement.

I once endorsed it. Sadly, I no longer can.

It is my considered judgment – a judgment, mind you, from which I derive not the slightest satisfaction – that the Tea Party movement, like the so-called “conservative media” of Fox News and talk radio, has become, if it hasn’t always been, an organ of the GOP.

Those who would convict me of treating the Tea Party movement unfairly on this score shouldn’t be so hasty.

Contrary to the assertions of their leftist critics, that the glaring profligacy of George W. Bush and his Republican-dominated Congress failed to give rise to the Tea Party most certainly is not the function of a lack of sincerity on its members’ part. Still less can this be attributable to some perceived racial animus that the latter have toward the current occupant of the White House. As far as broadening the scope of the federal government is concerned, it is true that Barack H. Obama exploited the trends initiated by his predecessors, both Democrat and Republican alike; yet, understandably enough, both the rapidity and the aggressiveness with which he sought to strengthen this Colossus provoked the backlash that is the Tea Party movement.

The Republicans spared no occasion, and no expense, to feed Leviathan – and yet the Tea Party never came. But it is a mistake to think that this is what warrants concerns regarding Tea Partiers’ declaration of neutrality vis-à-vis political parties. The suspicion that the Tea Party movement is essentially an arm of the Republican Party is not rooted in what it may or may not have done in the past; the suspicion is fueled by what self-identified Tea Partiers are doing right now.

It hasn’t been uncommon to hear Republicans, whether politicians or “conservative” media personalities, wax repentant over having “lost their way”…..

VADUM: Marxist mobocracy

October 15, 2011 2 comments

Abraham Lincoln rightly denounced the “mobocratic spirit.” James Madison considered it the sa- cred duty of government to protect property rights from the violent whims of the mob: “That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where the property which a man has in his personal safety and personal liberty, is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class of citizens for the service of the rest.”

Lincoln and Madison would not have looked kindly upon the pro-redistributionist political street theater under way in urine- and garbage-saturated urban parks across the nation.

In an insult to the intelligence of the American people, the leaders of “Occupy Wall Street” piously claim that their movement is in the best traditions of nonviolent protest.

These class warriors are lying. The whole idea of these mass protests is to provoke the police and cause mass arrests, which the organizers can then use for propaganda purposes.

This exercise in Marxist mobocracy began on Sept. 17 in Lower Manhattan as the “U.S. Day of Rage.” This is a more honest moniker because it makes clear that the demonstrators are the polar opposite of the Tea Party movement, which seeks to protect America’s economic freedoms from the statist onslaught of the Obama administration. The leftist mob wants a radical transformation of American society in which government is expanded exponentially.

Occupy Wall Street is led by New York’s Working Families party, a front group for ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), AFL-CIO and street-thug battalions from the various neo-communist organizations such as National People’s Action and Democratic Socialists of America

Protesters Occupy the Liberal Media

October 12, 2011 Leave a comment

When the Tea Party movement erupted in the spring of 2009, the media elites dismissed them as corporate-generated “Astroturf” noise. They found them barely worth covering, even to besmirch them.

But when the Occupy Wall Street protests began on Sept. 17, the liberal media was quickly bombarded with complaints from the left that the media were ignoring this massive “news” story. NPR Executive Editor Dick Meyer said the early protests “did not involve large numbers of people, prominent people, a great disruption, or an especially clear objective.” So the protesters went out and blocked the Brooklyn Bridge and drew 700 arrests — voila, a national story.

Contemplate this: The Occupy Wall Street folks drew more broadcast network stories in the first nine days of coverage (with 24 stories) than the Tea Party drew in the first nine months(with 19 stories).

NBC’s Michelle Franzen was the first promoter – OK, she calls herself a reporter — on the scene. “Protesters fed up with the economy and social inequality turned out en masse over the weekend,” she announced on “Today” on Oct. 3. “Voicing their discontent and marching for change.” Her expert source, Columbia professor Dorian Warren, dutifully proclaimed the Wall Street protests were “a liberal version of the Tea Party” that “could potentially carry over into the 2012 elections and get people to the polls.”

So let’s get this straight. The protests were like a stumbling little fawn trying to find its legs. They’d been in existence for about two weeks, and NBC was already suggesting the “potential” for what the Tea Party achieved in 2010 — a massive Democratic wave election in 2012. Journalists are either easily impressed or very energetic practitioners of wishful thinking.

ABC’s Dan Harris followed that night to offer his tributes. “This past weekend, 700 people were arrested when they stormed the Brooklyn Bridge. Now major unions are joining in, as are celebrities like Susan Sarandon and Alec Baldwin, and similar protests are popping up across America.” It might seem a little funny — and noteworthy — to have a protest against the mega-rich with mega-rich movie stars standing around, but it fits the media’s “prominent people” standard, so never mind.

This provides a crystal-clear contrast with the first Tea Party events in 2009. “There’s been some grassroots conservatives who have organized so-called Tea Parties around the country,” NBC’s Chuck Todd noted on the April 15, 2009, “Today,” but “the idea hasn’t really caught on.” On ABC, Dan Harris warned viewers that “critics on the left (wonder who?) say this is not a real grassroots phenomenon at all, that it’s actually largely orchestrated by people fronting for corporate interests.”

The first rhetorical shot that started the Tea Party is credited to CNBC analyst Rick Santelli on Feb. 19, 2009, when he accused the government of “promoting bad behavior” for “losers” who wouldn’t pay their mortgages and raised the possibility of a “Chicago Tea Party.” CNBC calls it “The Shout Heard ‘Round the World,” but at the time NBC and the other big three network shows completely ignored it.

The first New York Times story on the Tea Party on Tax Day 2009 came with a sneer: “All of these tax day parties seemed less about revolution and more about group therapy … people attending the rallies were dressed patriotically and held signs expressing their anger, but offering no solutions.”

But when the Times put “Occupy Wall Street” on the front page on Oct. 1, there were no people in need of therapy, and the marchers’ lack of solutions was, well, charming. The reporters began like they were writing a movie script. “A man named Hero was here. So was Germ. There was the waitress from the dim sum restaurant in Evanston, Ill. And the liquor store worker,” they wrote. “The Google consultant. The circus performer. The Brooklyn nanny.” They represented a “noisy occupation” that “lured a sturdily faithful and fervent constituency willing to express discontentment with what they feel is an inequitable financial system until, well, whenever.”…..

[I]deologically, many of the issues of 2011 are much the same as in 1861. Given the hold the tea party seems to have on the base of the Republican Party, we should take notice when some in the group invoke the Confederate constitution as a model for anti-tax, anti-centralization libertarianism.

One can easily find scoundrels and wacko nut jobs in any group, including the Democrat Party and, especially, university faculty lounges. But what animates the vast majority of the Tea Party is its allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, not the Confederate one. But Blight is not satisfied; he goes on to compare his ideological foes to slaveholders:

Indeed, yesterday’s secessionists and today’s nullifiers have much in common. Both are distinct minorities who have suddenly seized an inordinate degree of power. One acted in revolution to save a slaveholders’ republic; the other seems determined to render modern federal government all but obsolete for any purpose but national defense. [...] Today, states’ rights claims are advanced by many governors and Republican-majority legislatures in the very language of “secession” and “nullification” made so infamous in antebellum America. They are aided and abetted by a conservative majority on the Supreme Court, although the justices have not justified “nullification” by name.

I googled “nullification” and was not surprised that the second hit was to a webpage at a site I’m familiar with: The Tenth Amendment Center. The webpage lists the “Current Nullification Efforts,” and this statement of purpose:

The 10th Amendment Movement is an effort to push back against unconstitutional federal laws and regulations on a state level. The principle is known as “nullification,” and was advised by many prominent founders.

Greatest Generation, TEA Party, integrity bound and honest attempt at returning to true American principles The American Resistance

August 30, 2011 Leave a comment

I was present with a group of friends when we were graced with the presence of Representative Jeff Landry (R-3rd district). He spoke of his activity in the House of Representatives and commented on much of what’s going on in Washington.

One of the most important things said was his answer to a reporter in The Daily Beast Blog when asked about who comprises the membership of the Tea Party. It was his stance and public statement the Tea Party movement isn’t a political party in the standard form but more a “grass roots” operation composed of many people over the age of 55. These people are the children of the “Greatest Generation”; the generation sacrificing the most in recent history in their participation on the world stage to stem Nazi and Imperial Japanese efforts at world conquest. That same generation leapt to action against the growth and tempering of the Iron Curtain and Red Chinese insurgency in Korea……..

HAS THE SECOND 1776 ARRIVED?

by Ron Ewart, ©2011

(Aug. 7, 2011) — Some may call the rising of the Tea Party Movement, at this historical moment, as providence. Others might say that the time was right for them to appear on the scene, as government grew more fiscally irresponsible and corrupt. And still others might proffer that it is merely random probability that a freedom-loving, grass-roots movement suddenly was born in the hearts and minds of millions of Americans to take hold in the body politic.

Even in the midst of all the Obama Regime destruction, America has something to celebrate: Tea Party Patriots are keeping Obama from completing his threatened Fundamental Transformation of America.

No one elected to public office from either side has ever stepped forward to ask Obama who is he to fundamentally transform American. No one.

But from its inception, the Tea Party Movement has never stopped asking.

The Tea Party, the debt ceiling, and white Southern extremism (That’s Racism! Alert)

August 2, 2011 Leave a comment

The Tea Party movement takes its name from the Boston Tea Party of 1773, when American patriots dumped British tea into Boston Harbor to protest British imperial power. But while New England was the center of resistance to the British empire, there are few New Englanders to be found in today’s Tea Party movement. It should be called the Fort Sumter movement, after the Southern attack on the federal garrison in Fort Sumter in South Carolina on April 12-13, 1861, that began the Civil War. Today’s Tea Party movement is merely the latest of a series of attacks on American democracy by the white Southern minority, which for more than two centuries has not hesitated to paralyze, sabotage or, in the case of the Civil War, destroy American democracy in order to get their way.

The mainstream media have completely missed the story, by portraying the Tea Party movement in ideological rather than regional terms. Whether by accident or design, the public faces of the Tea Party in the House are Midwesterners — Minnesota’s Michele Bachmann and Joe Walsh of Illinois. But while there may be Tea Party sympathizers throughout the country, in the House of Representatives the Tea Party faction that has used the debt ceiling issue to plunge the nation into crisis is overwhelmingly Southern in its origins…

Tea party to GOP: We could (will) make ‘examples’ of you over debt ceiling

July 15, 2011 1 comment

Right now, some Republican lawmakers in Washington may be wondering how to wiggle out from between a rock and a hard place.

On one hand, they’re staring at a possible financial nightmare if the nation’s debt limit isn’t raised. On the other, many are feeling the heat from tea party demands that bluntly warn: Vote against us and suffer political consequences.

To be sure, Democrats are also under pressure from progressive constituencies who are pushing for more revenue in the form of tax increases — and for them to stand firm against cuts to entitlements such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

But over its 2½-year existence, the tea party movement has placed its banner of less government spending at the center of the national conversation. So many activists are watching who’s voting on what, even their conservative supporters in Congress — and especially putting the squeeze on moderate Republicans.

What they’re saying around the country is, “Do not raise the debt ceiling. It’s that simple. It’s time for Congress to get its fiscal house in order,” Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin told CNN. The group is the nation’s largest tea party organization.

Why US Conservatives Won’t Shut Down Real Tea Party Conversation

July 12, 2011 Leave a comment

Joe Scarborough

GOP tax pledge causes media meltdown … If moves forward with specific cuts on entitlement programs and Pentagon expenses, Republicans must work aggressively to close loopholes that favor billionaires and multinational corporations. I am quite confident that even tea party members would be fine with Warren Buffett paying more than a 14 percent income tax rate and would be happy to see the world’s largest corporation, GE, pay more in taxes than their own household. There is room for compromise. There is still hope for a grand bargain. But launching hyperbolic attacks at for staying true to their campaign promises only keeps us further away from that final deal. – Politico/Joe Scarborough

President Obama, Be VERY AFRAID Of The Tea Party Movement

July 6, 2011 Leave a comment

When USA House of Representatives Michele Bachmann, (R/MI), made it very much in no uncertain terms clear to President Barack H. Obama who believes that those people who take part in the tea party movement are nothing more then “toothless hillbillies.” What President Obama forgets or cares not to accept is the FACT that the “tea party movement” is a FORCE to be reckoned with come in 2012 USA Presidential election race.

Rep. Bachmann has it very much correct, President Obama has EVERY REASON to be very much afraid of the tea party movement. Since 2009, the tea party movement has not only has gained members, but also has played a major role in the November 2010 mid-term elections around the USA. As the USA continues to struggle with a very weak economy as well as growing concerns about the next upcoming date in regards to the “debt ceiling” between the President Obama White House and the USA House of Representatives Republican members who are under pressure to “cave-in” to the demands to have the “debt ceiling” raised by the August 2, 2011 deadline. Add to that and the lack of growth in the area of jobs, the concerns of the tea party movement has also been joined by many Americans who are concerned with the course of the direction the United States has been taking the last few years under President Obama.

From the Real Clear Politics website:”Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), GOP presidential candidate, warned President Obama to “be afraid of the tea party.”

“They want you to think that the tea party is made up of toothless hillbillies coming down out of the hills wearing red, white and blue. But the fact is, they should be afraid of the tea party,” Bachmann said at a campaign rally in Iowa.”

Rep. Bachmann, hit it right on the nail, because she has to her CREDIT, been keeping her finger of the pulse of what is going on in everyday America.

President Obama, the people who make up the tea party movement are NOT “toothless hillbillies” but Americans from all walks of life as well as all states of life themselves. Be they housewives, grandparents, college students, professionals, etc, there are many different folks who make up the tea party movement.

As it was said by the wife of John Adams, Abigail Adams to “remember the ladies” President Obama, remember what this lady, Rep. Bachmann said about the tea party movement, REMEMBER THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT, be very afraid of a tea party movement which is working to take back America.

Whose Tea Party? by Butler Shaffer

July 6, 2011 2 comments

Just as the 1994 Republicanscontract with America” quickly morphed into a “contract on America,” the “Tea Party” episode will quickly be transformed into just another franchise by which the owners reinforce their established controls over the rest of us. In time, audiences will become dissatisfied with the new performance, sensing that the Tea Party has become just another conservative Republican trick that will, in the words of Frank Chodorov, work “to clean up the whorehouse, but keep the business intact.” By 2012, disgruntled audiences will again demand a new show, confirming the definition of insanity as repeating the same acts and expecting different results. By then, the producers will be preparing the sequel, Tea Party II, for an early fall release to the theaters.

“YOUR SILENCE IS DEAFENING”

Dear Tea Party:

The Tea Party movement coalesced in a gathering of perhaps 1,000,000-2,000,000 in Washington, DC in September 2009 protesting government spending and lack of accountability of elected officials

(Jun. 29, 2011) — I don’t know which “Tea Party” I am writing to in this email…..there are SO many of you that claim that YOU were the ones that formed this mighty club…..but the fact that since 2008…….you have become a strong, persuasive force in America does nothing for me…..

Why?

Am I not glad that you are trying to control the debt? Yes.

Am I not glad that you are trying to make taxes fair? Yes.

Am I not glad that you can influence elections with more conservative candidates like you did in November? Yes.

So what’s my problem?

Let me just ask you one simple question…….when Barack Obama released his long-form birth certificate two months ago, did you all breathe a sigh of relief…..”Ahhhh, thank goodness!! Boy, we are SO glad he finally did that so we can get back to more important matters?”

Did you? Did you believe it to be the REAL thing…and there was NO chance that it might need to be forensically examined for its validity?

Obama is primarily responsible for the Tea Party movement, despite the fact that it is the nemesis of the President and the political establishment.

The movement is predominantly composed of a small number of Libertarians and a large number of Conservatives. The Tea Party Conservatives are formerly Conservative Republicans who have given up the notion of having a moral government and are tired of funding an immoral government.

They are disconnecting from the Republican establishment, which today seems more comfortable managing big government than ultimately reducing it. Herein lies their commonality with Libertarians. The Tea Party is thus at the vertex of this confluence that emphasizes as its central theme the notion that the U.S. must return to a Constitutionally limited federal government.

Railroading of Walter Reddy: Patriot’s Legally Owned Guns Seized

by Thomas R. Eddlem

Recently by Thomas R. Eddlem: Tom Woods Smacks Down Mark Levin on War Powers

Walter Reddy is the patriotic organizer of the Committees of Safety, arguably a founding father of the modern Tea Party movement, and his right to keep and bear arms has been taken from him. It doesn’t matter that he has committed no crimes, and has not been charged with a crime. A Connecticut judge told him at a hearing that Reddy had no right to an attorney and that “I’m ready to rule” to take Reddy’s guns away before the patriotic organizer had the chance to say one word in his defense.

Ready had organized the first modern-day Tea Party rally, a December 2007 rally at Boston’s Faneuil Hall that featured the then-little-known Rand Paul as a keynote speaker. Rand Paul, an eye surgeon and son of Rep. Ron Paul, has since gone on to become the most prominent U.S. senator associated with the Tea Party movement.

The following facts are undisputed by both sides of the legal dispute over possession of guns:…………….

Fight Like A Girl

In using that term, Sarah Palin issued a political call to action directed at the men who rule the Republican Party:

“We didn’t elect you just to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic,” Palin said during a rally in front of the Wisconsin statehouse in Madison. “What we need from you, GOP, is to fight.” Pointing to the national champion University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team, Palin said the GOP could learn from its resolve and “needs to learn how to fight like a girl.”

But the phrase signaled far more. Palin acknowledged what those of us who have followed the Tea Party movement have known for a long time: Women have been the driving force and energy behind the Tea Party movement.

But even more than that, Palin took a phrase usually considered an insult and turned it into a compliment.

In one sentence, Palin did more to advance the cause of women in politics than all the Women’s Studies Ph.D’s in all the universities in this country combined.

Update: Sissy Willis reminds us of the day. Be sure to watch the video of pre-nominee “drill baby drill” talk. I just paid $68 to fill my car this morning. How much longer until they come out with one of those automobile windmills?

American Thinker ^ | April 17, 2011 | Lee Cary

Future historians will describe the Democratic Party’s demonization of the Tea Party movement as a major political blunder that put them squarely on the wrong side of America’s 21st Century financial crisis.

When Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on a conference call that he’d been instructed by “the caucus” to use the word “extreme” when referring to the Tea Party, he carelessly revealed the previously obvious but unacknowledged truth. Democrats have a coordinated plan to demonize the Tea Party movement (TPM) via their oft-repeated meme that implicitly characterizes law-abiding citizens as terrorists — as with fundamentalist Islam or domestic militias, contemporary lone gunman or historical mass murderers (recall Nancy Pelosi‘s comment about Nazis in conjunction with TPM gatherings).

Using “extreme” is an extreme tactic on the part of Democrats. And a dumb one, guaranteed to galvanize the TPM into a stronger and more determined effort. One might ask: How could Democrats be so brazenly stupid as to think the tactic will be widely successful, particularly with independents? Even with the support of the legacy liberal media?

Maybe they just don’t know much about early American history. They should, since many of them have law degrees. And all of them can read…or, at least, most of them.

They should know that the historical precedent for the TPM wasn’t the Tea Party event in Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773. Significant for American history as that was, and still is, it isn’t the precursor of today’s TPM. Something else was.

The Continental Association, established on October 20, 1774, was the first Tea Party-like movement in American history. On that date, Peyton Randolph, President of the First Continental Congress, signed a document on behalf of those self-identified therein as “We, his majesty’s most loyal subjects.” The document came in response to the so-called Intolerable Acts passed by the British parliament……

Please consider the validity of what I am about to say rather than having a knee jerk reaction dismissing it as being “over the top.” Folks, we have an irresponsible egocentric evil man occupying the Oval Office.The democrats and the liberal mainstream media sold the American people on Obama, “the man.”

Despite Obama’s zero experience at running anything, they said a leader with his spirit and heart was “what we have been waiting for.”Fearful of criticizing our first black president, politicians politely say, “President Obama’s policies have been unfruitful”; while ignoring the huge elephant in America’s living room.The elephant of which I speak and America’s major problem is “Obama, the man”; socialist, divisive and evil.My dad says a snake can stay under water a very long time just like a fish. But eventually, it must come up for air. Why? Because, it is not a fish. It is a snake. Obama continues to come up for air revealing his true self.

The Real Tea Party

by Charles Stampul

Recently by Charles Stampul: How Football Explains America

In a move to break American resistance to taxation, British Parliament in 1773 relaxed a tax on exports, allowing a struggling English tea company to send its surplus product to the colonies. The tea would be priced low, but carry a tax payable to Parliament. Sensing a trap, the colonists organized. At Charleston the tea was seized and stored by customs agents. At New York the ship was turned back. At Boston, the seat of American agitation, 340 trunks of tea were thrown into the harbor.

We’re seeing similar protests today. Jury nullification of drug convictions. The launch of Wikileaks to reveal government secrets. And perhaps the closest thing to the Boston Tea Party to date, coordinated resistance to naked body scans and evasive pat downs at airports on November 24, 2010. Standing largely apart from this Tea Party inspired activism, is “the Tea Party movement.”

Young people adopt new and unusual sayings to individuate from parents, schoolteachers and other adults. “Off the hook,” was one such phrase. It was popular several years ago. A year or so later you heard one of the View ladies call something “off the hook.” By this time youths were saying “off the chain.” Responsible, financially secure, community involved, set-in-their-ways adults caught up, forcing young people to drop the phrase altogether. It’s like this for libertarians and the Tea Party………

Tea party member gets 8 years for attacking Obama supporter

 

Freep this paperGwinnett Daily Post ^ | 2-11-11 | Josh GreenPosted on Friday, February 11, 2011 11:31:08 AM by BrookhavenLAWRENCEVILLE —

Gwinnett judge sentenced a tea party member to serve eight years in prison for attacking and hospitalizing a President Barack Obama supporter during a 2009 bar room altercation, a prosecutor said Thursday.Jurors convicted Carnesville resident Larry Morgan, 39, of aggravated assault and two counts of aggravated battery this week for smashing several bones in the victim’s face with a pool cue on Jan. 31, 2009 — a few days after Obama’s inauguration.

According to testimony, trouble began when Morgan was talking to other bar patrons about his negative feelings about Obama, when one of O’Neill’s friends said he had voted for the president.Morgan replied, “Well, you are stupid as hell,” before making some racist comments or jokes, witnesses testified, Taylor said. All people involved were white, she said.Later, O’Neill and his friend were laughing about or poking fun at Morgan’s comments when he became angry, fetched a pool cue and broke it across O’Neill’s face.

The impact was so forceful that the victim had no memory of being struck or the circumstances leading up to it, Taylor said.Morgan, who testified he considers himself a tea party member, told the court he was acting in self-defense. He claimed O’Neill and his friend had threatened “to beat him up in the parking lot,” Taylor said, recalling testimony.Excerpt Read more at gwinnettdailypost.com …

Barack Obama has it both ways

Posted on Thursday, January 13, 2011 4:46:39 AM by Cincinatus’ Wife

…I am truly sorry to place such a terrible event in what appears a cynical, calculatedly political context but truly, democratic politics is about moral leadership and persuasion as much as anything else. A critique of the quality of Mr Obama’s speech is not a frivolous show business review: it is central to the concept of free debate and how it is to be conducted. So how did he do? There had been much speculation about whether he would criticise those on his own side who have exploited the tragedy for opportunistic purposes – accusing the Right of creating a “venomous” atmosphere in which such violent acts are triggered. And yes, he did that in pretty clear terms. We cannot, he said, use this occasion as one more excuse to turn on one another, especially when there was no evidence at all to show that the murder was provoked by exposure to political language. But he also said that this was a moment for everybody to take stock of the vehement rhetoric that had become commonplace in American national discourse – which, if you are so inclined, can be taken as a direct hit at Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement.

The Establishment Media Is Already Trying To Blame The Tea Party And Opponents Of The Federal Reserve For The Coming Economic Collapse

November 15, 2010 Leave a comment

Why does it seem like major establishment news outlets come out with the exact same talking points so often? This time, the mainstream media in both the United States and in the UK are placing blame for an economic collapse that hasn’t even happened yet on the Tea Party movement and on opponents of the Federal Reserve. Of course it is completely and totally ridiculous to even think for a moment that the Tea Party could be responsible for our current financial problems. The Tea Party is still basically brand new, and even though they gained a a number of seats in Congress during this past election, they still have far, far less power than the establishment Democrats or the establishment Republicans. The notion that the Tea Party could be responsible for plunging the entire globe into a devastating economic depression is absolutely hilarious. But that is exactly what some major mainstream media outlets are actually suggesting.Just consider the following examples….Time Magazine ran an article on November 10th with this headline: “Will Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Cause Hyperinflation?” In that article we find gems such as the following…. “Before the Tea Party, inflation is rising slowly. But in the first year the Tea Party or a group with similar views wins the Presidency or takes over Congress, whamm-o. Inflation doubles, and keeps going up.”…
