    *snip* A veterans groups called The Veteran Defenders of America has now answered that question. In a documented Call-to-Action titled a – A Declaration to Restore the Constitutional Republic – former Military and Law Enforcement Officers have come together to demand that all oath-takers immediately execute their oaths in preservation of the Constitutional Republic. At present, every member of the Military, Law Enforcement, Justice, Congress and federal employment is in direct violation of their oaths. As they stand idly by allowing an anti-American transformation of our constitutional form of government, they do so in direct violation of the oaths they...
  • How Will You Celebrate This 9/12? (No march on DC in september)

    Freedom Works ^ | August 7th | Matt Kibbe
    I'm often asked why we're not organizing another Taxpayer March on Washington this September 12th. Why, after more than a million Americans protested on 9/12/2009 and 9/12/2010, aren't we headed back to Washington? The reason is simple: we're not just a protest movement anymore. This movement has had stages. We began as a protest movement against big government in 2009, morphed into America's most powerful get-out-the-vote machine in 2010, and pushed for transformative legislative change to rein in government in 2011.

    The Tea Party has no leader. It has no address, no phone and no Washington headquarters. It is everywhere and nowhere. For Barack Obama, the Tea Party is the quintessential asymmetrical enemy, much like the Taliban in Afghanistan. The president stands a chance of losing on both fronts. The Post set up a posse and went in search of the Tea Party. Of the 2,300 local groups claimed by one Tea Party organization, The Post could verify or reach only 647. As for the rest, "it is unclear whether they are just hard to reach or don't exist," The Post...

    The Tea Party Movement, otherwise known as the Great Peasant Revolt of 2010, has been greeted by the country's ruling class with all the sympathy that Voltaire expressed toward the Catholic Church: "Kill the infamous thing!" Although the American Revolution provides the inspiration for today's Tea Party Americans (TPAs), their opponents in government, academia, and the media have exhausted their warehouses of invective by reacting to this new challenge to old privileges the way the French Aristocracy regarded the Third Estate. Which means, in the aristocracy's view, that there must a Robespierre or Marat lurking within that rabble, waiting with...

But I have six photos from right before the march, the march itself, and one from over at the washington monument grounds.

He led the march that day.(as he did the next day, 9/12 IIRC) If you wish to see my pics from tax day 2010, look...

    Salon's War Room ^ | October 3, 2010 | Steve Kornacki, News Editor
    The hope of the organizers of Saturday's "One America" rally in Washington was that a big turnout -- something on par with the crowd Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin attracted at the end of August -- would alter the media's midterm campaign narrative, which to date has emphasized the energy of the Republican base and the likelihood of sizable GOP gains in November. And, to the organizers' credit, the turnout, to the extent it could really be measured, seemed impressive enough. But while we might want to take this as proof that the "enthusiasm gap" is vanishing and that the...

    No doubt you’ve heard the stories. There’s a political storm is brewing, and it’s based on anger. They’ve taken over our primaries; they’ve overthrown the establishment; and they’re against civil rights. Yes, I write about nothing other than the Tea Party. The disdain felt for it is easy to spot. Inevitably, when the topic comes up among my friends, there are references to “those people.” It is cursed for the threat its poses to the legislative agenda and it’s refusal to be tamed. Even esteemed Yale professors, who shall go unnamed, have taken the time in class to attack the...

    When Barack Obama took the presidential oath, the world hoped it would heal the wounds of America's divided past. But today, less than two years later, the far-right is gaining ground across the US. This week's Koran-burning stand-off is just the symptom of a wider disease gnawing away at the world's greatest democracy. The alarming trend is best shown by the soaring popularity of the Tea Party movement. Named after the Boston Tea Party of 1773 when Americans dumped their British rulers' tea in the sea, it has become a rallying point for the right. It provocatively chose the anniversary...

    The Glenn Beck Lincoln Memorial event brings to mind Brazilian Ze da Silva’s cartoon which on one side has Martin Luther King Jr. and on the other side President Barack Obama. On the left is the courageous, prophetic king who exalts, “I have a dream!” On the right is another courageous man, President Obama, bent low over his desk, muttering, “I have a nightmare.” Both men represent a limitless, indescribable courage, filled with dreams for the American people. King has just appealed for social, economic and racial justice. Obama has dreamed of a country free of racial, religious and sexuality...

    Anyone who has seen the images from the turnout for Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally can't deny the numbers were significant, no matter what the final totals were. Now defining significant might be like defining the definition of is, but that was a few presidencies ago. This rally appears to represent a growing movement that may very well impact the country politically. That is what is creating a reaction. Most people don't have the urge to go to Washington, DC for any rally. It appears as though the comments about the numbers at the rally indicate a fear that there...

    Richmond, Va. -- While I don't count myself a fan -- his tears and emoting are a bit much -- Glenn Beck isn't the hate-mongering racist that Howard Dean, Leonard Pitts, and others claim he is. And many good, hardworking Americans put a lot of stock in Beck -- average Americans who are concerned about the moral and fiscal direction this country has taken. So, it was out of curiosity that I went to Washington with my brother, Patrick, his son, Jack, and my daughter, Bridget, to attend Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally. None of us was quite sure what to...

    Despite all the words spilled in evaluating Glenn Beck's tent-less revival last weekend, the real meaning may have been hiding in plain sight. Beck's "Restoring Honor" gathering was right out of the Alcoholics Anonymous playbook. It was a 12-step program distilled to a few key words, all lifted from a prayer delivered from the Lincoln Memorial: healing, recovery and restoration. Saturday's Beckapalooza was yet another step in Beck's own personal journey of recovery. Beck's history of alcoholism and addiction is familiar to any who follow him. For Beck, it has been a defining part of his life, and recovery is...

    Yesterday, former Air America editor in chief Beau Friedlander had a silly little blog at the Huffington Post in which he promised a $100,000 bounty for a Glenn Beck sex tape. The post was actually a barely coherent, largely inaccurate history of neoconservatism, plus complaining about Glenn Beck, that ended with a paragraph offering "a $100,000 payday to the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone records or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever." (Friedlander does not actually have this money, which made the whole thing even sillier.)* Today,...

Thirteen percent (13 percent) more say they have close friends or family members who are part of the Tea Party movement, a loose knit group of Americans nationwide protesting big government and high taxes. Sixty percent (60 percent) say they have no ties to...

Holding her BlackBerry up with one hand, she lamented that the Associated Press had only pegged attendance as "tens of thousands." Asked if there were more than 100,000 people there, Palin said: "Oh yeah." Smiling broadly, the former governor described the event as inspirational and good-naturedly chided a reporter for not attending. Told that there was some chatter online about the prospect of a Palin-Beck presidential ticket,...

In fact, Ron Paul believes, if you’re looking for real freedom, you should really go back to the core of the constitution and the bill of rights, which Beck and Palin do not fully endorse when you really look at their beliefs.

    As Philadelphians know, the second most significant event in human history occurred right here in 1787. That was when the Founding Fathers gathered in Independence Hall (and the City Tavern, among other watering holes) to write the United States Constitution. One day, as the Convention was finishing its work, the story goes that a woman stopped old Ben Franklin in the street. “Well, Dr. Franklin,” she supposedly asked, “what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” “A republic,” Franklin replied, “if you can keep it.” Franklin’s choice of words was deliberate. The Founders emphatically did not want to create...

    IN 1773, Sam Adams led the Boston Sons of Liberty, thinly disguised as Mohawk Indians, onto three British freighters, seized their cargo of imported Indian tea and threw it into the harbor. They were afraid that the tea, unexpectedly cheap because it had been exempted from the usual British reexport tariff, would tempt Massachusetts consumers to abandon their principled resistance to taxation without representation. A later historian jokingly referred to the event as the “Boston Tea Party.” Today, anti-big-government agitators are channeling their ancestors’ ire as they build a Tea Party movement of their own.

    Does anyone recall the first weeks of Barack Obama’s presidency? He was everywhere on the media all the time. His constant use of TelePrompters became an instant joke, suggesting he could not say anything unless it was scripted. Indeed, listening to him try to speak without them is a painful process of a very slow selection of words and very long pauses in between. After his first press conference he stopped holding them until 309 days later when he addressed the oil spill in the Gulf. It was such a lame performance that his advisors apparently thought a speech from...

During a recent appearance on NBC's "The Chris Matthews Show," Time columnist Joe Klein said that much of the heated political rhetoric, "especially the [statements] coming from people like Glenn Beck and to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right up close to being seditious." Of course, sedition is a crime. It is the revolt or inciting of revolt against the authority of the government. Mr. Klein's message was clear: Conservative critics of President Obama are committing treason, especially the Tea Partiers who express their disapproval through rallies...

In that relatively brief period, the Tea Party...

    It may be the most celebrated missing recording since Watergate: the nonexistent or unaccounted-for video of the tea-party protesters at the Capitol who three black congressmen claim yelled racial slurs at them on March 20, the eve of ObamaCare's enactment.... First, there turns out to have been at least one report of a corroborating witness to the alleged slurs. Washington notes that in its March 23 edition, the Hendersonville (N.C.) Times-News published this interview with Heath Shuler, the local congressman, a Democrat who voted against ObamaCare: Shuler was walking with Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, an African-American, toward the Capitol building when...

    Thanks to Sean Hannity for talking about this group on his radio show. Follow the link to read the mission of this group. Next Tea Party you go to be on the look out for trouble makers. Chances are they could be agents of these idiots.

    Democratic officeholders should be afraid. Republican officeholders, too. For many a year now, officeholders of both major parties have worked hard to earn the distrust of ordinary Americans. It appears that they finally have succeeded. If only ordinary Americans hadn't been so inattentive. If only ordinary Americans hadn't been so trusting. If only ordinary Americans hadn't been so damnably nice, the country would be in a better position to manage its finances today. But when have Americans not tried to look for the good in every situation? When have we not been slow to recognize the need to deal with...

    I am wondering who is going to the April 15th Tea Party in Washington DC. I have not seen much info on it yet, but did hear a hint on Fox News last night. I have a fairly good number of people willing to go, but do not want to go if there isn't going to be thousands there. Not with the first timers coming along. Interesting thing...most of the new protesters are college kids! And, I know that at least half of them were/are democrats who are outraged at the health care bill passed! If anyone has info on...

    Well, here we are, the United States of America finds itself on the precipice of passing sweeping legislation that will, in my opinion, have an incredibly negative impact on the US economy for years to come. So, how does the left plan on paying for this? Simply put, the left plans on letting the “Bush Tax Cuts” expire, thus forcing millions of individuals and families (that saw their personal income tax bill go down under President Bush) having more of their income withheld under this administration to pay for the lefts campaign promise – Net result, less family funds. Yes,...

    I travelled with this group to the big march, Bill Green just told me he has added buses due to the response. His email to confirm space is: Patriots! We are working to get a few buses from the area to DC for this Sat. It would seem we have once again reached the precipice of seeing this nation fall into the quagmire of pending regulation and bureaucracy that will diminish and possibly destroy not only our tremendous healthcare system but our freedoms in general. We have procured several buses and one of them right now is set aside...

    The latest maneuvering by congressional Democrats to make their brand of health care reform a reality has a lot of Washington, D.C. insiders scratching their heads and unable to forecast what is around the bend when it comes to this legislation. But have the media completely dropped the ball and that is allowing those in power to circumvent constitutional process? According to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., they have. She had some harsh words for the fourth estate on conservative talker Sean Hannity's March 16 radio show. (h/t Kevin Eder) "Well yeah and the other thing is treason media," Bachmann said....

    WEST PALM BEACH — Venting about the conservative tea party movement and talking — at times heatedly — about the need for civility in public discourse marked the debut meeting of a local "coffee party" group today. About 40 people showed up for the meeting at a Panera Bread restaurant, where organizer George Papison had booked a small room in expectation of a dozen or fewer. The meeting was one of hundreds planned for today across the nation by Coffee Party U.S.A., a group that sprang from Facebook rantings against the tea party movement by filmmaker and Obama supporter Annabel...
