'They are coming after you...'

So Bertha Lewis, former CEO of ACORN, says she is a socialist. Yawwwn.

It shouldn't surprise anyone that Lewis is a socialist. Many people active in public life today, including the President and most of his cabinet and close advisors, are socialists, statists, Marxists or communists. Some are even domestic terrorists. They aren't even trying to hide it any more.

Lewis is clearly supportive of socialism, a political philosophy diametrically opposed to American mores. But she goes far beyond that here, accusing Tea Party activists of some diabolical ideas:

It is disappointing is that Lewis feels compelled, apparently, to forecast some ominous events and attributes them to emergence of the Tea Party movement. (And yes, she refers to it as a "bowel movement" in the clip above - extra-classy socialism.)

Lewis predicts that the coming era of conservative political dominance will dwarf:

That's a lot of dwarfing.

What Lewis means, of course, by using these bizarre illustrations, is that she's certain socialists like her and her audience will soon be out of political power in the United States, relegated to small group meetings in people's basements, homosexual bars and medical marijuana dispensaries (while they still exist).

The truth is that Senator Joseph McCarthy was right: There actually were communist spies infiltrating the United States government in the 1950s. A lot of them. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were convicted and executed for spying because they were spies.

Ironically, it was Democrat icon Franklin D. Roosevelt who issued orders to imprison people - even American citizens - of Japanese, German and Italian ancestry during the Second World War. No one other than Lewis and a few other leftists are suggesting that today's subversive, anti-American socialists be rounded up and put in camps. We just want them out of elected office. Soon.

Jim Crow laws and segregation? Only liberals persist in such forms of racism. The Congressional Black Caucus, NAACP, United Negro College Fund and many other organizations continue to operate today with a separate-but-equal philosophy. Of course, there are still indviduals in our society who hold racist attitudes. But we have come a very long way since Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. exhorted us to look past skin color to examine a person's character.

But liberals will never buy the idea of a color-blind society. Tea Party patriots, on the other hand, don't care about the ethnicity of elected officials. They care about real issues, like the national debt and excessive taxation. Those issues don't have a skin color.

"They are coming after you," Lewis claims. That is true, but only in the political sense. American patriots are weary of our freedoms being eroded and destroyed by pro-big-government statists like Lewis. Tea Party activists are ordinary Americans - 40 percent of whom now self-identify as Democrats or independents - who have decided our way of life is worth defending.

Last, but certainly not least, citizens are beginning to realize that socialists are, by definition, disloyal to the U.S. Constitution. They actively seek a political and social order foreign to the American experience. Some, like Obama advisor Bill Ayers, commit acts of violence like bombing police stations and the Pentagon to carry out their agenda. The Tea Party movement isn't borne along by racismor violence, but a realization that our Federal government is dominated by people who are determine to destroy our American way of life.

What's your take? Why should we listen to socialists like Bertha Lewis? Do they have anything to offer a society that lives by the rule of law, whose founding documents are so clearly at odds with socialism.

How to deal with infil-traitors

We call them "infil-traitors."

The usual suspects - anarchist ne'er-do-wells and unemployed leftist goons are determined to make tea party attendees look like racists, haters and dangerous subversives. In other words, they want to make conservatives look just like them.

Oregon teacher Jason Levin, who may have created his "Crash the Tea Party" web site on school time and with public resources, is being investigated and has been placed on leave. His site has been reduced to a legal defense fund appeal.

This great video clip from a recent St. Louis, MO tea party rally shows patriots exactly how to confront infil-traitors:

Whether this man is actually a white supremacist, a member of the Ku Klux Klan, or just a not-very-bright "progressive," his alleged racism is not something that represents the views of conservative American patriots. Kudos to the person who persistently - and peacefully - outed him.

Far-left liberals deserve ridicule

According to @wizbangblog:

In 1971 Saul D. Alinsky, founder of the Industrial Areas Foundation, published Rules for Radicals. Alinsky wrote the book because, as a man who had spent nearly his entire life organizing, he was dismayed at rag-tag efforts of campus radicals and hippies who claimed to be activists and organizers but who had succeeded only in calling a great deal of attention to themselves, and little else. Alinsky believed that the youth protest movement of the late 1960's - early 1970's had great promise, but he also realized that it was ideologically tattered and hopelessly obsessed with shock and sensationalism instead of results. His book was designed to teach those radicals how to organize. source
Alinsky's Chapter 7, "Tactics," lists 13 "Power Tactics." Number five says:

Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition.
And that's exactly what buffoons like Rep Alan Grayson (D-FL) deserve: ridicule. Watch as the uninvited Grayson invades and interrupts a local Tea Party gathering, insults citizens there and acts like an all-around fool:

Men like Grayson are nowhere near qualified to serve in the United States Congress. Just look at the many, many clips of him on YouTube. It's astonishing how many foolish, inane things come out of the man's overactive mouth.

It isn't difficult to do, but we have to constantly point out that liberals like Grayson are ridiculous - until they are not electable, even in liberal districts. Are you willing to employ Alinsky tactics against the far left America-haters?

'Of course I support the Constitution... I just don't know what it says.'

The U.S. Constitution specifies an oath of office only for the President:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
For other Federal government officials, including members of Congress, the document says only that they "shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation to support the Constitution." Members of Congress today take this oath:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Congressman Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ) was confronted recently at a town hall meeting by a citizen patriot who freely quotes - from memory - chapter and verse of our founding document:

Whether or not members of Congress should memorize the entire Constitution may be debatable. But Congressman LoBiondo clearly didn't know even the subject matter addressed in the First Amendment.

Note to candidates, especially those of you who claim to be Constitutional conservatives: You'd better be somewhat familiar with the document you're swearing to support and defend. It isn't enough to just talk about this. You'd be wise to actually know what it says, and why. Prove you are worthy of our vote.

What do you think? Does ignorance of our Constitution make a person ineligible to serve in elected office?

You better hope it works for you, too...

Couldn't afford a new iPad? You're not alone. But because they care deeply about social justice, the Obama regime has just introduced the oPad:

We're not sure how much it costs, or how many years you'll be paying on it. It doesn't start working until years from now, and you have to buy it to learn anything about it. Does this all sound familiar?

Let the debate begin... finally

President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress love to talk about how wonderful ObamaCare is. This, despite the fact that most of them have absolutely no idea what is actually in the 2,600+ page bill they rammed through with procedural chicanery.

Since they didn't really know what was in the bill, Democrats severely restricted Congressional debate on the pending legislation. Revealing a staggering lack of allegiance to the Constitution, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) actually said, "But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it..."

According to Rasmussen Reports, 54 percent of Americans now favor repealing ObamaCare, and the number is growing. Every day we learn of another outlandish provision in the legislation that "nobody really knew was in there."

Enter Ilya Shapiro and the Cato Institute. Shapiro has issued a bold challenge. He'll debate anyone, anywhere about the Constitutionality of ObamaCare:

Better late than never, we say. Patriots who respect our founding documents and the rule of law must continue to point out that ObamaCare is, in fact, unConstitutional.

Let's hold the media accountable

Conservatives and patriots from across the United States gathered in the nation's capitol on March 10, 2010 to express their displeasure with President Barack Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress.

Why? According to liberals, it's solely because conservatives are racists. But the truth is that many Americans are deeply concerned about our skyrocketing national debt and angry with Democrats using procedural trickery to make an unConstitutional takeover of the entire healthcare industry the law of the land.

Undetered by reality, the sycophant liberal media continues to repeat the lies about incidents of racism that allegedly took place at this protest. Despite hundreds - perhaps thousands - of video recording devices running throughout the event and a $10,000 reward offered for a clip that includes a single racial epithet, not a single one has turned up.

Watch this, and share with your friends. Let's not let the liberal media continue their lies in support of socialism and statism.

How will you hold the media accountable?

Will you stand with the Constitution and America?

Nate asks a powerful question at the end of this brief clip from the Tea Party Movie: "Will you stand with the Constitution and America? Or will you stand with tyranny?"

Although Nate directs his question specifically at African-Americans, the same question is being asked of every citizen today.

Our Founders wrote a Constitution that carefully restricted the new Federal government, limiting it to very specific powers and responsibilities. Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution is referred to as the "Enumerated Powers" clause because it lists exactly what Congress is permitted to do. The 10th Amendment, ratified December 15, 1791, further clarifies that the Federal government has no authority beyond the enumerated powers.

But more than any previous political leaders, President Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress are flagrantly ignoring our Constitution. Like all pro-big-government politicians, their agenda is to circumvent, undermine and destroy the relevance of this important document. It stands in the way of their desire to see our lives controlled completely by an all-knowing, all-powerful Federal government. This has been going on for generations, and the American people are finally waking up. They are angry about the betrayal of these power-hungry tyrants.

Men like James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and John Adams would very likely stand with Nate today, asking you which side you will choose: Are you with the Constitution and America? Or do you stand with tyranny?

Healthcare resistance begins

Dr. Jack Cassell, MD, a Florida urologist, has decided to make known his views on socialized medicine. And like most medical doctors, he doesn't like it one bit:

The sign on his door tells patients, "If you voted for Obama, seek urologic care elsewhere." And just to drive home the point that President Obama is at war with the medical profession, Dr. Cassell adds, "Changes to your healthcare begin now, not in four years."

Unless the unConstitutional healthcare package is repealed in its entirety, our healthcare system will be destroyed. We congratulate Dr. Cassell. His blunt method of educating Obama's lemming supporters is both powerful and relevant.

How do you plan to resist these new, unConstitutional Federal regulations?

'I don't worry about the Constitution...'

Representative Phil Hare just blurts it out, as if it's no big deal: "I don't worry about the Constitution."

Hare, who is a Democrat, claims to represent the people of Illinois. But he admits in this clip that he doesn't really know, understand or care about the U.S. Constitution. He even quotes from the Declaration of Independence, and then incorrectly attributes it to the Constitution.

Constitution and the rule of law be damned! We have to keep all these uninsured people from dying n the streets, no matter what our founding documents say!

Ignorant, unprincipled lawmakers like Hare - who disavow their sworn oath to uphold the Constitution - are why our nation is heading quickly toward socialism. If we are to save our Republic, Americans must replace simpletons like Hare in November 2010 with legislators who will swear to govern by the Constitution - and mean it.
