  • Minuteman Project to return to the Border

    Ten months before the media’s big dog and pony show.

    Meanwhile we are forwarding volunteers to the Texas Minuteman Project and other groups that will have them on the border in weeks, not months.

    We are also organizing groups and planning protests; hopefully we will have minutemen trickling to the border by the first week in June.

    We had no idea we would get such a huge response; we are getting thousands of inquiries, and it’s only been a week since Jim announced “Operation Normandy”.

    It’s bad enough that the snarky, socialist contrarians didn’t see this post as a joke, but you guys?!? I expect nothing intelligent from the left; but when my fellow freepers can’t see a farce for what it is, maybe it is time to pack it in and move to another country.

    Deborah Courtney (AKA Deborah Peterson, Deborah Sielski, Debbie Peters), the woman that tried to take over the Minuteman Project has a new scam that has reached a new low for even her. Deborah is soliciting donations for a wounded Marine, but the checks are to be made out to her as well as gift cards and cash to be mailed directly to her. There is no oversight or legitimate organization in this scheme, just Deborah and her boyfriend Paul Sielski stealing thousands from trusting donors. If you want to help wounded servicemen, donate to Wounded Warrior Project, but don’t trust your donations to Deborah Peterson-Courtney-Sielski-Peters; a person with a history of misappropriation and outright embezzlement.

    It started as a lark; Jim Gilchrist of the Minuteman Project, author Hudson Flynt and I decided to leave the comfort of the CPAC convention and see if the Occupiers protesting outside would be willing to engage in constructive dialogue. We walked down the long driveway to a crowd of people with signs standing around an inflatable “Fat Cat” and chanting something about “Racist Teabaggers”.

    From the start the conversation tended to focus on the things we agree on rather than things we don’t. The topics included jobs, no more bailouts, an end to crony capitalism and an end to the Fed. There was no shouting or personal attacks.

    After an hour or so we invited a few of the organizers to come have a beer with us at the pub in the Marriott hotel. Although the security guards tried to stop them from entering the lobby, we explained that we were guests at the hotel as well as conventioneers and the Occupiers were our guests for dinner. After a quick walk through the lobby the “beer summit” began.

    At the start there were eight of us sitting at two pushed together tables, but we were soon joined by Steve Eichler and Dale Robertson of “TeaParty.org” and several curious conventioneers of CPAC. One occupier identified as “Rusty” (real name withheld by request), jokingly mentioned that his side was beginning to be outnumbered, so he and I went back to the sidewalk and got a few more occupiers that looked like they could use a meal and a beer. We did our best to keep the numbers even.

    Some of our discussions focused on the media; all three organizations had been portrayed badly by reporters. It is they that have painted Tea Partiers as racists and Occupiers as communists. It is the media that focuses its cameras on uninvited skinheads at the Tea Parties and Union bully thugs at the Occupy rallies. Movements are easily discredited by undermining interests and their media lapdogs; on that we completely agreed.

    After about three hours Rusty and I went back out again to fetch his backpack and tent. I walked straight into the Occupier’s lines without a single word or even a dirty look. As I waited for Rusty to gather his belongings a loud argument between a CPAC conventioneer and some of the Occupiers ensued to my immediate right. What happened next was captured on video at http://youtu.be/eDEnQ27v39s .

    About an hour later, while we were getting along and enjoying good company in the Pub, several thugs from the local pipefitters union showed up outside and began causing trouble. These union “protesters” were bused in and paid to protest according to our occupy friends. To quote Rusty, “They show up, cause trouble and leave before the cops do anything. It’s us real occupiers that end up taking a beating from the cops, not them”.
    The “summit” lasted until the bar closed. We all took away from it an understanding and the hope that we could work together; at the very least we could support each other’s right to protest.

    In the 1770’s, a group of people met in a tavern with a lot less in common than we have. Together these rabble rousers, statesmen and patriots had but one goal, to make the British Crown nervous. What would happen if Minutemen, Occupiers and Tea party members stood united against the government? Do you think it might make the Whitehouse nervous?

    Cooperation between the groups accomplishes one major goal, to make the Whitehouse nervous. In 1775, several groups that had little in common also came together for one goal, to make George III nervous. Tea Party and occupy agree on jobs, crony capitalism, ending the Fed, no more bailouts and a distain for the administration… and Irish beer.

    And you would be right, but they were good guys and, as it turns out, the Occupiers hate the unions! They were telling us that hired union thugs show up, cause trouble and leave the real occupiers to get beat up by the police for something they didn’t do.

    Jim Gilchrist of the Minuteman Project invited occupiers for a beer and a sandwitch; six hours later they were still drinking, eating and focusing on the things they agreed on. It started with one tabe at the pub and grew into several and part of the bar. Occupiers, CPAC attendees, tea party and Minutemen all together.

    Remark withdrawn with my apologies. I assumed you were one of Gheen’s attack dogs and I (being one of Gilchrist's attack dogs) felt the need to lash out. You gotta understand it's been a bad week.

    As for Gheen, you can look him up with the words CofCC or “David Duke” and see for yourself. I understand that Gheen has no control over who reposts his work, but he did have a choice when it comes to the CofCC events he spoke at.

    Court Victory For Gilchrist

    “It was long overdue and warmly welcomed” was the quote made by Jim Gilchrist upon receiving the news, “the hijacker’s case they had fraudulently filed in the name of the Minuteman Project was thrown out of court; on none other, than, Friday the 13th!”

    There is no doubt Marvin Stewart, Debbie Courtney and Paul Sielski had a very bad Friday the 13th, when they learned Judge Wilkinson threw them out on their ear. Not only that, but once again, Courtney was slammed with a big fat court fine! The sanction was over $ 1,000.00, which is just another court fine added to her growing collection of violations.

    During the hearing Stewart, flailing his arms and bellowing his pompous rhetoric into the face of Superior Court Judge Wilkinson, lead to an extremely harsh warning from the Judge. The Judge fired back to the ranting Stewart: “You are very close to committing a felony” (court transcripts soon to be posted).

    Jim Gilchrist and his counsel for the Minuteman Project, Inc. are reviewing the proceedings and other court statements made by the Minuteman imposters: Stewart, Courtney and Sielski, to verify if there is a pattern of “in court felonies” they have committed. If felonies are discovered, then the prosecution of these Minuteman charlatans would be expedited.

    Gilchrist is now on schedule to clear his name. He has directed his complete legal staff to concentrate on “bringing the Stewart gang of impersonators” to justice. Under Gilchrist’s direction, the legal staff sprung into action and filed a blistering suit, on behalf of the Minuteman Project, Inc. against several of the fraudulent tricksters. In the action Gilchrist is demanding the return of all stolen monies Stewart and Courtney embezzled from the Minuteman Project’s Corporate account.

    The Minuteman Project’s counsel has demanded more than 7 times, in numerous depositions for the alleged “smoking gun evidence.” To date, the hijackers have not complied with the demands to deliver the evidence.

    Gilchrist with the authority of the court in hand, demands all the supposed evidence the Minuteman swindlers say they possess, be immediately surrendered. Yet, to date, Stewart, Courtney and Sielski “can’t seem to find the evidence,” “forgot to bring it” or “will get it next time.” Those excuses will no longer work! The court will force them to prove their allegations under oath!

    “I demand my day in court! I will have my good name back. Show my counsel, and me, the so-called evidence used to cut my throat and to knife me in the back.” Eichler said.

    Minutemen stay on mission; don’t let these distractions keep you from saving America. God Bless The U.S.A.!

    Well, let’s start with this from the same author...

    The Minuteman Project, an Anatomy of a Hijacking

    By Jack Sharpe

    After months of defending the Minuteman Project against charlatans and con-artists, the organization and its founder, Jim Gilchrist were at their breaking point. Three of Jim’s once trusted advisors had attempted to hijack the name, bank accounts, domains and email lists of the Minuteman Project while orchestrating a slander campaign against Mr. Gilchrist. Many of the Minuteman Project’s open border enemies in the news media intentionally mislead the public to the facts of this case to further their own agendas. I say intentionally because no real journalist would be as sloppy or selective with the truth.

    For the record:

    1.Jim Gilchrist is the legally recognized President of the Minuteman Project.

    2.A neutral audit of the financial records has cleared Jim of any wrong doing (A PDF copy of this audit can be downloaded at Minutemanproject.com).

    3.The hijackers are under court order not to represent themselves as members of the Minuteman Project.

    Jim has emerged from this episode victorious, but the fight has taken its toll on the 58 year old border watchdog. When the hijackers attempted to steal the Minuteman Project they sacked the bank accounts and took the mailing lists, crippling the organization. To make matters worse, the cost to defend the Minuteman Project from the hijackers has put the organization deeply into debt; many supporters claim that this was the hijacker’s goal to begin with.

    It seems strange that this hostile takeover attempt of the Minuteman Project happened just prior to the attempted passing of the amnesty bill, the Presidential debates and several protests to free the incarcerated border agents. It seems equally strange that three advisors out of ten would assume they had the power and mandate to seize control of a National Movement. Stranger still when you consider the fact that two of the three conspirators (Stewart and Courtney) were told that their services were no longer needed just prior to the private meeting they held at a seafood restaurant. It was then that the three of them decided to declare themselves the rightful owners of the Minuteman Project.

    To understand the motives and methods of the hijackers, you need only look into their background…

    Although Marvin Stewart likes to represent himself as a Minister, Politician and an official in the Veterans Administration, he is in fact a fraud on all three counts. His Church, “Our Lords Salvation Ministries” has no members, offers no services and ministers to no one. It does, however net Mr. Stewart a few “tax free dollars” and a means to solicit support from the gullible. Marvin Stewart is not a member of the California Republican Party, nor even a member of the Los Angeles County Republican Party Executive Committee; he is a local volunteer central committee member in a powerless district. Marvin makes his living filing frivolous lawsuits and as an accounts receivable clerk (bill collector) at the VA hospital in Long Beach.

    Deborah Peterson, AKA Deborah Courtney, AKA Debbie Sielski, AKA Anne Peters has made a reputation for herself as a charlatan and social climber. In 2004, Deborah Courtney used her “special relationship” with Sheriff Mike Corona to have her drunken driving, drug and weapons charges reduced to a single misdemeanor. She repaid Corona by supporting his opponent in the next election. For all Deborah’s inconsistencies, she never fails to turn on her friends in a time of need.

    Deborah Courtney attempted takeovers in almost every organization she has joined in the last ten years including the Aliso Viejo Republican Women Federated, the De Angelo Foundation and the Liberty Belles. It was no surprise to Orange County political insiders when they heard she had tried to steal the treasury and donor lists of the Minuteman Project. It was also no surprise to anyone that knew her that she was accused of charging the project almost $100,000, with no accomplishments to show for it (other than plagiarism and several five star hotel bills).

    When Deborah Courtney started as an advisor to the Minuteman Project, she insisted that all of the advisors be given title “Director” and that her title be “Political Director”. This alone should have warned Jim Gilchrist that she was up to no good. Jim decided to allow his trusted advisors to use the title “Director” on the understanding that it came with no real power and could be revoked at any time.

    During the time Deborah Courtney was with the Minuteman Project, she was disciplined several times for taking credit for other peoples work, charging the organization for personal expenses and never completing a task. She was removed as Jim’s political advisor after making a series of careless mistakes that damaged the Minuteman Project’s reputation with the Republican Party. After a tearful apology (and support from Coe and Stewart), Deborah was given the task of organizing the State chapters and referring new members to the Chapter heads. Instead, Deborah began to channel new members (and their donations) to fellow conspirator, Barbara Coe’s organization CCIR; Jim did not discover this until several weeks after the attempted takeover.

    In mid 2006, Deborah Courtney moved hijacking accomplice, Paul Sielski into her home and claimed that they had gotten married. However, Deborah is still receiving spousal support from her ex-husband and Paul still owes his ex-wife over $250,000 in back support. Deborah convinced Jim Gilchrist to hire Paul’s internet security company (AACompSec) to “secure the website from internet predators”. Instead, Paul Sielski and his partner, Karl J. Vesterling changed the access codes to the website and diverted some of the online donations to an off-shore bank account. Paul and Karl were paid $3,500 for their “services”; it is still unknown how much more they stole from the donors.

    The last hijacker, Barbara Coe surprised everyone when she sided with Marvin Stewart and Deborah Courtney-Peterson-Sielski-Peters. Barbara had been seen as a driving force in the movement since she wrote and became the chief proponent of Prop 187. However, as it turns out, Barbara Coe didn’t write Prop 187 (Ron Prince did) and she was not the chief proponent (Dick Mountjoy was). In fact it was the California Republican Party and the California Republican Assembly that did all of the work and raised the money. What did Barbara Coe do? She took credit for the victory.

    Barbara Coe built her reputation on the labor and sacrifices of patriots. She used her ill gotten cache with the liberty community to grow her organization, the California Coalition of Immigration Reform (CCIR). She neglected to inform her members that she also belonged to the Council of Concerned Citizens (CofCC), a racist group that uses the Confederate flag as its ensign. Barbara was the key note speaker at two CofCC conventions and is still a member in good standing today. Barbara neglected to tell anyone in the Minuteman Project of her connection to racist groups because she knew it wouldn’t be tolerated.

    Barbara Coe introduced Jim Gilchrist to CCIR and he became a regular attendee of the monthly meetings. Not knowing the truth about Barbara’s past, Jim was happy to accept her support and friendship. But soon it was Jim Gilchrist that the members of CCIR came to see and the Minuteman Project they were donating to. It wasn’t long before Barbara noticed that donations to CCIR were dwindling while the Minuteman Project was prospering. Barbara and Deborah Courtney hatched and implemented a plan to divert funds and volunteers from the Minuteman Project to CCIR.

    The plot sickens…

    Barbara Coe must have known it was just a matter of time before Jim discovered that Deborah was diverting volunteers and donations to CCIR. She also knew Deborah was on thin ice with Jim; all she had to do was convince Marvin Stewart that he was next. That piece of the puzzle came from Paul Sielski, who read the truth about Stewart from an online forum; now Barbara and Deborah had the means to control Stewart, if they couldn’t buy him off.

    Again, each of the hijackers had something to hide and they all knew that time was running out, but they weren’t ready yet; they needed a few things first. Barbara Coe sent her CCIR goons to the Minuteman Project office on a day she knew that neither Jim nor Steve Eichler (Jim’s Chief advisor) would be there. The goons copied the mailing lists, financial records and other crucial information onto flash drives and attempted to format the hard drives. They also took files, equipment, official stationary, furniture and broke into Jim’s office to steal anything with his signature on it. When Jim Gilchrist heard about the break in he called Barbara Coe to ask if she knew anything about it. Barbara claimed it was to protect the Minuteman Project from Steve Eichler.

    Here’s where the plot gets interesting; the hijackers had to have a reason to take control of the Minuteman Project, and they needed a scapegoat. They knew that Steve Eichler had been trying to convince Mr. Gilchrist to dismiss Deborah Courtney since May, 2006. Steve Eichler had also confronted Marvin Stewart about Stewart’s unauthorized spending of Minuteman Project funds for luxury items (Stewart also presented Jim Gilchrist a bill for speaking engagements). The hijackers believed that if they could drive a wedge between Eichler and Gilchrist, Jim would side with them; they could get rid of Eichler and have plenty of time to alter the records to cover their tracks. What the hijackers didn’t know is that Tommy Crenshaw (Gilchrist loyalist) had recently backed up all of the files and given Jim a copy.

    Jim Gilchrist immediately began reviewing the files Tommy Crenshaw had provided him a few days before. It didn’t take long before he discovered the problem; someone was stealing, but it wasn’t Steve Eichler. As Jim studied the books he received a call from his webmaster, Linda Muller, informing him that she had been locked out of the website. When Jim asked her who could have done such a thing Linda replied, “Only Paul and I have access to change the password”. It was official; Barbara Coe and Deborah Courtney were up to something.

    Jim called a meeting of all parties the next day in the hope of getting some answers; it was February 2nd, 2007. The hijackers arrived together with copies of the altered documents in hand and immediately began to attack Steve Eichler; they had no idea that Jim had been reading the originals. Jim allowed the hijackers to have their say before he confronted them with copies of the original documents. Then he fired them. Deborah Courtney made one last ditch effort to blackmail Jim and Steve with threats of “taking down the Minuteman Project” if Jim didn’t buy her off. A lesser man would have wrote a check and hoped they would go away, but not Jim Gilchrist.

    And so, the war was on. The hijackers used Minuteman stationary to write up phony documents and used a scanner and laser printer to forge Jim’s signature. They submitted these documents to the Delaware Secretary of State’s office claiming to be the new board of directors of Minuteman Project; now they had the papers they needed to empty the bank accounts. The hijackers immediately changed the website; the front page had a post claiming that Jim Gilchrist had been fired and the contact page showed Marvin Stewart as the new President. The page also named Deborah Courtney as the Treasurer; a close friend of Deborah Courtney’s commented that making her treasurer was like making Michael Jackson the Dean of a boy’s school.

    As Deborah and Paul Sielski used the mailing and email list to slander Jim Gilchrist, Marvin Stewart tried to gain support from the local Republican Party. The GOP was still sore at Gilchrist for running as an Independent against John Campbell in 2005; Stewart believed he could use the Party’s dislike for Gilchrist against him. However, a member/delegate of the California State Republican Party, Edwin R Williams had already warned the County Central Committee to stay clear of both sides until the matter could be sorted out in court. At the time Williams was reportedly working for the Minuteman PAC (a division of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps), but he had once served on the Minuteman Project board as the Director of Special Projects. Edwin had warned Mr. Gilchrist about Deborah Courtney in May of 2006 when he resigned from the Minuteman Project, but he had no documented proof. It was a “he said/she said” situation. When asked if he believed the advisors had the power to fire Gilchrist, Williams said, “They had no more power to fire Jim than I do to fire the Governor. We chose the title Director so that we could look like big shots, but Jim always had the final say in all decisions”.

    At the darkest hour Jim’s webmaster, Linda Muller was able to convince the server to freeze the Minuteman Project website until Jim could fax the paperwork, proving his ownership. It took two weeks to convince the server to issue Jim a new password; by then Linda had created a new website that featured a “Hijacker Update” page.

    Paul Sielski was the hijackers “webmaster”, but he had few skills and was mostly incompetent. Paul didn’t have the skill to create a new webpage, so he had all of the hijacker’s new domain names point to his MySpace page. Although MySpace is a good online community site, it is a poor substitute for a real website. Paul spent his time “trolling for friends” on MySpace, writing disjointed hate mail and making threats on online forums. Fortunately for Paul, the other hijackers were even less computer literate than he was. He lied and told them he was accomplishing important tasks, knowing they would never know the difference.

    Paul posted a badly edited recording of the February 2nd, 2007 meeting on his MySpace page (minutemenfortruth.com). Of course he edited out the part where Jim fired them all and the part where Deborah became unhinged and made every threat she could think of. In fact most of the interesting parts of the meeting were removed, but what remained still made Marvin and Deborah look bad. After studying this story for the past few months, I’ve come to the conclusion that Paul Sielski just isn’t very bright.

    Another thing the hijackers didn’t know (except Deborah) is that Paul Sielski was a fugitive from the law and has a history of domestic abuse, fraud, spousal rape and battery. Paul was arrested and sent back to Maryland in July 2007, where he is awaiting trial and facing 25 years in Federal prison. You may notice that his MySpace page and the website Minutemenfortruth.com has not been updated since. So now the hijackers have no internet presence at all, except for the stolen email lists.

    After the news of Paul’s arrest the hijacker’s attorney, Jim Lacey petitioned the court to be removed from the case. He would be the first in a long line of lawyers to flee the hijackers after getting to know them. Apparently the old expression, “you can get a lawyer to sue anyone for anything”, may not be completely accurate.

    Despite the Cease and Desist order, Deborah Courtney is still spinning lies and spewing hate through her stolen email list. Her ineloquent name calling and hateful rants have become more and more bizarre over the last few weeks. She hasn’t yet learned that everything she writes has been forwarded to the Minuteman Project Attorneys who keep all such letters in a special file. The funniest thing is she apparently doesn’t remember what version of her story she had already sent out to the list; her story changes from email to email.

    Marvin Stewart has been taking advantage of the people’s confusion over the rightful control of the Minuteman Project. He attempted to settle a lawsuit the Minuteman Project had filed against Compton City College out of court; the trouble was, Stewart didn’t file that lawsuit, Jim Gilchrist did. Once again Marvin Stewart was caught red handed committing fraud. Before this incident he had artfully avoided publicly violating the court order by calling himself, “the President of the Minutemen”, while having others introduce him as “the President of the Minuteman Project”, but now he couldn’t explain away the $9,000 he attempted to con from Compton College.

    Lately even Barbara Coe has distanced herself from Stewart and Courtney. Barbara’s attack on Jim Gilchrist caused most of her supporters to turn their backs on her. Now CCIR is a shadow of its former self and the donations have dried up. After 20 years of taking credit for the work of others and raking in the money of well meaning patriots, Barbara Coe may be looking for a real job.

    As for Jim Gilchrist, he and a few remaining advisors are trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered organization. The independent audit has returned Jim’s credibility, but the lawyer’s fees and court costs have put The Minuteman Project deeply into debt. To survive the Minuteman Project must restart fundraising efforts, rebuild their contact lists from nothing, and reconnect with the volunteers that helped Jim build the organization in the first place. That is just what Jim plans to do. When reached for comment Jim stated, “this is far too important a cause to let greedy narcissists destroy it. We will move forward in this fight.”

    The news is good!

    IRS Approves Minuteman Project, Inc.

    In an expected victory this week the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) granted the Minuteman Project, Inc. a 501 (C) (4) non-profit tax exempt designation, that organization’s president, Jim Gilchrist, announced today.

    After a three-year review of the organization Gilchrist founded in 2004 the IRS concluded that there were no improprieties or irregularities that would prevent Gilchrist or his Minuteman Project organization from receiving the approval.

    The approval concluded a long application process and came as what Minuteman legal counsel at Gordon & Rees law firm states “a great victory for Jim Gilchrist and the Minuteman Project, Inc. The non-profit status is retroactive back to May 5, 2005, the date Gilchrist originally incorporated the Minuteman Project, Inc. in Delaware.”

    “The I.R.S. recognized the legal authority of only one director and one officer,” Gilchrist said.

    Gilchrist holds all the offices and is the sole and only director with corporate authority, the group’s legal counsel explained.

    Gilchrist has been under repeated attack for the past two years by disgruntled former volunteers who, he said, have relentlessly attempted to hijack and plunder an activist organization he created over four years ago.

    “I think their goal was to get access to my organization’s public donations by whatever means it would take them to do that, including making false claims to the public that I used my organization to conduct ‘criminal activities’,” Gilchrist said.

    “Would the IRS approve a person that they are investigating? Never;” stated Stephen Eichler, Executive Director of the Minuteman Project. “There can be numerous members of an advisory board of directors,” he continued, “but there is only one with authority and that has always been Jim Gilchrist. Even the most powerful tax authority in the country recognizes that.”

    “We have worked long and hard hours for this approval and were delighted when we received it just a few days ago. Now, Mr. Gilchrist can aggressively move forward into the immigration law enforcement advocacy business that has been put on hold for so long because of all the organizational infighting.” said Carol Schaner, LLM, Minuteman’s lead corporate tax counsel with the law firm of Gordon & Rees, LLP in Newport Beach, Ca. “The approval has been long overdue. Today our confidence in the executive branch has been reassured.”

    Not that you are worthy of replying too, but...

    CHRIS MATTHEWS: Do you think there’s any difference, really, between a gay marriage and something called a civil union?

    GOV. MITT ROMNEY, MASSACHUSETTS: Well, I would rather have neither, to tell you the truth. I’d rather that domestic partner benefits, such as hospital - hospital visitation rights for same-sex couples. I don’t want civil unions or gay marriage.

    But there is a difference, even when just the word is the difference. And the difference is that, if you indicate as a society that you’re indifferent between a same-sex couple marrying and a heterosexual couple marrying, then it means our schools and other institutions are going to have to indicate that there is no difference whatsoever, and that obviously has societal consequences that are important.

    MATTHEWS: You mean if we called it marriage II or barriage or come up with some other word, and yet the law was exactly the same, that would be significant?

    ROMNEY: Well, I’m not sure we are going to come up with a different word.

    Mitt Romney’s VC Firm to Buy Clear Channel
    TOP del.icio.us digg

    What would it cost to buy the support of just about every nationally-syndicated neocon talk show host in America? About $19.5 Billion, which is what Mitt Romney’s private equity firm, Bain Capital, and Thomas H. Lee Partners have agreed to pay in a leveraged buyout agreement with Clear Channel Communications, the largest radio station owner in the country. This is part of a negotiation that has been pending for over a year.

    Clear Channel owns over 1,100 full-power AM, FM, and shortwave radio stations, twelve radio channels on XM Satellite Radio, and more than 30 television stations in the United States. Premiere Radio Networks, which is the largest syndication company in the United States, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Clear Channel and is home to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and many others. Sean Hannity recently signed a large multi-market contract with Clear Channel, as well.

    Polls mean nothing. Most people hang up when called by a pollster and evangelicals tend to not be comfortable giving ANY information over the phone. The question is whether or not G-D fearing, Jesus loving people will return to the GOP.

    In the last election they stayed home and the Republicans lost the House and Senate.
