The NRA announced its strong opposition to the confirmation of Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court in a letter to the U.S. Senate on July 1. Today, they announced the release of a television ad:
Both her political career in the Clinton Administration and her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee make it clear that Kagan would be a serious opponent of our Second Amendment Rights.
Last year, Sonia Sotomayor deliberately misled the American people by claiming she believed it was “settled law” that the Second Amendment protected an individual right to keep and bear arms. This year, she proved she never really believed that by voting against the Second Amendment in McDonald v. City of Chicago.
Elena Kagan used the same phrases – “settled law” and “precedent” – to describe her view of the Second Amendment in the hearings. It is critical that the members of the U.S. Senate not fall for the same trick twice….
Here’s the ad that the NRA will be airing across the country. Watch, and then contact your Senators at 202-224-3121 (Senate switchboard) or look up their email and office phone numbers here — Senators of the 111th Congress. Urge them to oppose and filibuster Kagan’s confirmation. The future of our Second Amendment rights depends on it!
Noble Wise is an ordinary citizen who is riding through the country trying to raise awareness of our political situation with two beautiful horses. He began his Voter Awareness Campaign on Monday, March 22. You can follow the progress of his trip on his website.
“Let’s get some citizen statesmen running for office, and vote them in. We certainly cannot do any worse than what we have in Washington right now.”
Yesterday, over 100,000 American citizens came from all over the United States on their own dime to protest ObamaCare on the mall in Washington. Gateway Pundit has good pictorial coverage here. (The mainstream media ignored the whole affair. But at the same time, there was a small demonstration against the war, about 1% as big, and it received extensive coverage.)
Today, various Democrat organizations are bussing 100,000 pro-amnesty marchers to Washington. NumbersUSA is streaming coverage live. They are on air now. Notice how many of these potential voters call Obama “el presidente.” They are chanting their slogans IN SPANISH. Even their T-shirts are printed IN SPANISH.
The Congresswoman who redefined the “slaughterhouse rules” serves (I use the term loosely) New York State’s 28th congressional district. The district has been so notably gerrymandered that it is known locally as “the earmuffs.”
The district skims along the top of western New York and dips down at both ends to include working class sections of Buffalo and Rochester, designed by Democrats to be a safe Democratic district (see map). That may explain why incumbent Louise Slaughter felt free to violate the Constitution and ignore the majority of citizens in a bizarre display of political party loyalty.
The local American patriots are planning a protest to be held outside Slaughter’s Buffalo office this afternoon:
When: This Friday, March 19, 2010 4:30 PM
Louise Slaughter’s Office
465 Main Street
Buffalo, NY 14203
A CALL TO ARMS!!!!!!!!
There will be a protest at Louise Slaughter’s office, 465 Main St, Buffalo, on Friday at4:30PM… Please come with your signs made up and ready to wave….
Most of us will be glued to our televisions at 3PM this afternoon to watch Glenn Beck’s big speech at The Villages, a Florida retirement community. He has mobilized patriotic Americans to resist the Marxist takeover of the United States being perpetrated by the Obama administration.
Up until now, he has crusaded through his increasingly popular radio and television programs, leaving viewer ratings for the MSM networks in the dust. And last spring, he founded the 9-12 Project, a non-partisan social networking organization that gives coherence and clout to citizen protests.
But today he promises to announce a new direction. The Examinerreports:
Beck’s Saturday rally, which is set for 3 p.m., at the Villages (Near Lady Lake, Florida), will kick off his 2010 brainchild to win back Washington and preserve the Constitution. Glenn plans to announce details on his 2010 strategy at the rally.
And here’s the clip of the announcement from his television program on Fox News Channel:
Our readers are invited to discuss their reactions to the program in the comments section following this article.
UPDATE, 4 PM: Well, that was a disappointment. It was a good program, but it was a pre-recorded interview with Vince Flynn, author of Pursuit of Honor. Glenn did reveal some of his strategy for the coming year, though, posted on his website about halfway through this television program:
Glenn Beck reveals the Plan
November 21, 2009 – 15:28 ET
….There is much to do, much to learn and time is of the essence. While I will be explaining the entire Plan over the coming weeks and months, I did want to give you a preview of some of the highlights:
- Education is key, and not just for our children. To that end, we will be conducting a series of conventions. These will be full-day experiences where you will be immersed in learning about topics ranging from self-reliance, community organizing, the economy and how to be a political force in your own neighborhood and country….
Bottom line: The Marxist takeover of our country by Obama and his troops was facilitated by hordes of “community organizers” who had been training for years for that moment, in the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), among others. So millions of patriotic Americans will have to learn those skills to take our country back. And, starting next year, Glenn will be offering that education.
Glenn Beck Stakes Out a More Activist Role in Politics”
Glenn Beck, the popular and outspoken Fox News host, says he wants to go beyond broadcasting his opinions and start rallying his political base — formerly known as his audience — to take action. To do so, Mr. Beck is styling himself as a political organizer….
Blogmocracy — Glenn Beck in Tampa, Blogger Rodan went to the book signing and has a post and pictures.
While serving as ACORN’s Chief Organizer, Rathke created SEIU Locals 100 (Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Texas) and 880 (Illinois, Indiana and Kansas). After establishing SEIU, Rathke held executive positions in labor unions while working as ACORN’s Chief Organizer.
ACORN whistle-blowers swore SEIU and a coalition of labor unions gave ACORN $1,729,462 for political activities and union organizing in 2008, mixing together taxpayer money and union funding. It would seem that the American taxpayer has been picking up the tab to promote Rathke’s political agenda and advance his unionizing activities.
While governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich signed an executive order allowing collective bargaining, which helped SEIU unionize health-care workers. The mega-union had been Blagojevich’s biggest supporter, donating more than $1.8 million over two campaigns for governor.
Now SEIU is in the process of building an empire to handle America’s healthcare needs, which explains its unrelenting fight for a public option. Obviously, the mega-union envisions greater demand for its services and plans to mine the mother load of new dues-paying members.
The candidacy of Dede Scozzafava has divided the GOP between its Reagan conservatives and the party establishment.
Leftist progressive Republicans might not raise the eyebrow of your average Snowe-blind Maineiac, but the thought of adding another DIABLO (Democrat In All But Label Only) statist-minded representative to Washington has GOP conservatives and libertarians apoplectic.
Scozzafava is in a three-way race with Democrat candidate Bill Owens and Conservative candidate Doug Hoffman to fill the seat of departing Republican John McHugh in New York’s 23rd Congressional District.
Scozzafava, who has been lauded by Newt Gingrich, supports abortion, homosexual marriage, Brother O’s stimulus spending, cap-and-trade, and Card Check; and is endorsed by Markos Moulitsas, founder of The Daily Kos; NYSUT (New York State United Teachers), the largest labor union in New York and affiliate of the National Education Association, and ACORN’s (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now’s) Working Families Party.
Right now Democrat Bill Owens is leading Hoffman Scozzafava, but Hoffman’s poll numbers have been steadily rising and have surpassed Scozzafava, which means that Scozzafava is now just a spoiler and could keep Republicans from holding the seat that McHugh routinely won by 2-to-1 margins.
Hoffman is running as the Conservative Party’s candidate because New York’s local GOP establishment entered their “smoke-filled room” and chose Scozzafava behind closed doors, bypassing a primary and the party’s grass-roots voters.
Scozzafava’s leftist politics aren’t the only embarrassment for the Republican Party. She called the police on John McCormack, a Weekly Standard blogger, who questioned her about support for Card Check and then used the propagandist media to smear the journalist.
The call has gone out for Scozzafava to withdraw or be dumped from the race. More than a dozen conservative bloggers and organizations have called for her resignation and for the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) and the Republican National Committee (RNC) to withdraw their support and put their resources behind the real Republican in the race.
If Hoffman wins the big one, his campaign will become the template for grassroots conservative campaigns nationwide next year. The special election for New York’s 23rd Congressional District just might be the spark that ignites an internal revolution to regain the soul of the GOP and bring common sense and sanity back to the party of Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater.
Gamaliel is actually a more dangerous group than its corrupt cousin ACORN for it actually embodies the dreaded union of church and state, and, if left unchecked, will emasculate individual liberty in the name of God and sacred community and will sacrifice religious freedom on the advocacy altar of social justice and the greater good.
Brietbart TV has recently unearthed a 2:00 minute video of a Gamaliel International Leadership Assembly “prayer meeting” held December 4, 2008, in Washington, DC, which has created a bit of a stir.
In the video, people hurriedly enter a room while chanting, “Everybody in! Nobody out!” an apparent reference to universal health care. The group then gathers to offer a scripted prayer for “all of us who face health care without good health care insurance.”
In liturgical fashion, a woman leads a responsive reading, and the group purportedly responds at appropriate intervals “Hear our cry Obama” and “Deliver us Obama.” Whether the respondents clearly say “Obama” or “O God” is open to debate, but what is not debatable are the current and historical ties that Brother O has to the Gamaliel Foundation.
Alinsky’s organization was based in Chicago, and it trained a cadre of community organizers for such groups as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and the Gamaliel Foundation in the political strategies outlined in Rules for Radicals. To build left-wing political coalitions within inner city neighborhoods and black churches, Alinsky-style organizing specialized in ideological stealth, deception, and camouflage.
Like ACORN, the Gamaliel Foundation is a politically active organization with Marxist goals and differs only in its narrowly-focused outreach for infiltrating local church communities rather than entire neighborhoods. Once infiltrated, the Gamaliel Foundation hijacks the church leadership to combine a Marxist agenda with a smattering of Christian doctrine and push leftist political issues through methods of intimidation and agitation. Gamaliel organizers quietly share the same anti-American liberation theology brought to the limelight through the guttural discharges of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
Gamaliel stands at the center of a well-coordinated, well-funded, and complex campaign to take back the debate and move Obamacare forward. Almost thirty denominations including mainstream Episcopal, Presbyterian USA, and United Methodist churches have joined Gamaliel and the Whitehouse to sell Obamacare through a nationwide TV ad with local clergy and lay leaders supporting reform, prayer rallies and in-district meetings, petition drives, and a call-in Webcast that featured Brother O and diverse faith leaders.
Alinsky created partnerships among faith-based community organizations as a means to seize power to realize his utopian dream of equality, justice, and peace. In Chicago, Brother O learned how to use power at the feet of some of the most radical socialists in America and to advance the Alinsky agenda into the highest levels in government.
Now that America is in the throes of an Alinsky dream, Americans may wish to examine what the Reverend John C. Welch and Gamaliel acolytes say about the man into whose hands the governance of this nation has been placed:
“He is Gamaliel. He is African American. He is one of us. He is the 44th President of the United States of America!”
Stop supporting vote fraud and corruption with your tax dollars! ACORN has gotten $53 million from Congress since 1994. Now, with the “stimulus bill,” ACORN could receive an additional $8.5 billion (yes, BILLION) more of your tax money, even while they are being investigated or under indictment in various states for illegal activity.
To prohibit the Department of Housing and Urban Development from providing any assistance to any organization that has been indicted for a violation under Federal or State law relating to an election for Federal or State office.
Even in the current climate of rampant socialism that is destroying our republic, Michelle Bachmann stands fast as an attractive and articulate spokeswoman for the founding fathers’ vision for our country. Watch this video to get to know her.
MAY 9, 2009: Democrats are split on how to deal with Acorn, the liberal “community organizing” group that deployed thousands of get-out-the-vote workers last election. State and city Democratic officials — who’ve been contending with its many scandals — are moving against it. Washington Democrats are still sweeping Acorn abuses under a rug.
On Monday, Nevada officials charged Acorn, its regional director and its Las Vegas field director with submitting thousands of fraudulent voter registration forms last year. Larry Lomax, the registrar of voters in Las Vegas, says he believes 48% of Acorn’s forms “are clearly fraudulent.” On Thursday, prosecutors in Pittsburgh, Pa., also charged seven Acorn employees with filing hundreds of fraudulent voter registrations before last year’s general election….
