GOP accepts Democrat Candidate in TN 27th Rep race, Haslam, Ramsey support effort

July 18, 2014
0627 am

 In today’s political world we are seeing blurred lines between the two major parties. It is evident today as we see endorsements pour in for a Democrat running as a Republican in a TN State House Rep race in the  27th District.

Nationally, the collective silence from GOP elected reps at all levels supports the theory that the R’s and D’s  are becoming one party.

The lack of resistance to tyranny displayed recently by Obama and other Democrats by our elected leaders speaks volumes of their allegiance to a blended system of government where “reaching across the aisle and sitting there” is the expected norm and preferred.

The end result is a maturation of a system that rewards turning a red blue situation into a purple one leaving a  blended party to represent we the people. 

This scenario puts our republic at a great disadvantage and leaves us with no real representative type of government that separates different political ideaologies.

In Chattanooga with the Hamilton County Republican Party choosing to back a true democrat that has chosen to run as a Republican we are seeing this type of politics personified and accepted.

Candidate for the 27th District, TN State Representative seat Patsy Hazelwood is a perfect example of this type of blending that is destroying the fiber of our country.

Mrs Hazelwood has chosen to enter this race as a spoiler propped up by Bill Haslam, Claude Ramsey and the Chamber of Commerce against a true conservative Republican. 

Tommy Crangle, the true GOP Candidate  is happy to brag of his distinction as a one party candidate representing the values of his constituency. With Tommy Crangle you know you are getting a true Republican GOP Candidate, his opponent, the opposite.

Candidate Patsy Hazelwood entering this race as a true Democrat in a Republican race speaks volumes of the direction the establishment GOP has chosen to pursue. In conservative land we call these candidates RINOs a label many choose to avoid in the strongly red state, she appears to run to it!

Bill Haslam has propped Candidate Patsy Hazelwood up as a state leader by assigning her as a Regional Director of the TN Department of Economic and Community Development for 3 years. She was also Organizer and Founding Director of Capital Mark Banking and Trust and also served for many years with AT&T.

Claude Ramsey has endorsed her for the TN State Representative, 27th District. Hazelwood had this to say about Ramsey, in an article found on the Hamilton County GOP website recently. “I am grateful and honored to receive Claude Ramsey’s endorsement,” said Ms. Hazlewood”, “He is one of our state’s greatest Republican leaders, and I admire his commitment to job creation and education in our region— a commitment I will continue on behalf of District 27.”

Ramsey quipped back with his assessment of her on the HCGOP site, ” Citizens deserve a proven leader and a representative they can trust to faithfully serve their interests in Nashville,” said Mr. Ramsey. “Patsy Hazlewood will do just that. Patsy is competent, qualified, and ready to serve.”

Only one problem with this scenario. As we draw the line inside a republic that begs for party indifference and separation necessary to balance the powers of a potentially tyrannical government one thing stands out as a truth. She IS NOT a Republican running for this state GOP seat, SHE IS a Democrat.

Mrs Hazelwood has been called by the GOP as “Politically flexible” with “no political obligations.” She has recently described her self as a “Conservative and a Republican!”

Her voting record paints a much different picture.

In 4 previous primaries back to 1992, she has voted on a Democratic ticket, 3 of which were Presidential Primaries of which she cast  votes for Obama, Biden, Clinton, Edwards, Kerry and Brown. To date, her voting record in local and state races is unknown but if party allegiance directs her as it did in 4 Primaries, I can assume the Democratic ticket was punched.

It has even been reported that she has written a letter to the Hamilton County GOP requesting the status of her political affiliation, seeking confirmation of her GOP status and her true allegiance to the GOP. (At the time of this publication, I could not verify this with a link but my source is reliable.)

This does not make her apolitical with no political political obligations, this makes her a RINO with the assumed long term intent to swing the state blue under the guises of a Republican. 

These actions and acceptance by high level  GOP elected reps such as Governor Bill Haslam and Claude Ramsey supporting her as a GOP Candidate is disturbing. “Staunch Republicans” supporting and endorsing a “Registered Democrat” for a GOP seat  leaves many questions as to their direction of our state and their leadership decisions made that affect it’s citizenry. 

My assessment is this. What is really a Republican or Democrat in the State of Tennessee and what values are represented when we endorse our leaders of tomorrow that are aligned with the opposite party?

Where does the line blur stop? Why do we continue to ignore past party affiliations and associations in the name of politics? 

Sure this is America and we can vote for who and when we want. Mrs Hazelwood can vote as she pleases but when the lines of demarcation no longer exist and GOP party seats are won by Dems we yield to a tyrannical mindset where accountability is extremely difficult to establish.

The Rs and Ds are rendering a political fruit that will  die on the vine! This blending is dangerous and will only create deeper division as true independents and conservatives will only levitate towards a truer color that represents our values and interests. 

For an alternative to this “blended” party approach, go to 

http://www.tommyfortn.com/

I know Tommy. I had the pleasure of fighting along side him in other arenas. One of the qualities that stood out for me was he was always consistent, nice, a true gentlemen and represented his GOP Party proudly and without waiver.

If you want a Democrat in a Republican State House Seat then by all means vote for Patsy Hazelwood in the 27th District.

Tommy Crangle and Patsy Hazlewood will both be on the GOP ballot in the Aug. 7 election, one as a Republican and the other as a Democrat.

Early voting begins today, Friday, July 18, 2014. 

Tennessee House District 27 includes Soddy Daisy, Falling Water, Red Bank, Mowbry, Signal Mountain, Lookout Mountain, Lookout Valley, and Walden.

Many will see this as a hit piece on Patsy Hazelwood and that’s ok with me. I see it as public education to the masses and a huge opportunity for the voters to see what they are getting when they cast their votes. I stand with my decision to not just ignore this planned takeover of our state but to inform.  

Get out and vote today! 

Only you can decide your representative. If I lived in this district, I know where my vote would go!

Have a blessed day!

BCN predicts huge win for Joe Carr in TN US Senate seat race.

In Government on July 15, 2014 at 5:45 PM

BCN predicts huge win for Joe Carr in TN US Senate seat race.

Its more than a good feeling that has drawn me to predict Carr a winner in the US Senate Seat over long term politician Lamar Alexander in Tennessee.

From the water fountain at work, the grocery store at your favorite retail store, at political meetings, church, everywhere everyone is talking about the upset and can the upset be pulled off? And the staff at BCN has predicted yes!

With the most recent addiction of talk show host Laura Ingraham to the Carr campaign, it’s an upset brewing and waiting to happen.

You may remember the last candidate she backed. Congressional Candidate Dave Brat defeated the very liberal left leaning, pro immigration, RINO, Eric Cantor. She was very instrumental in that monumental win.

Recent polls are seeing significant bumps in poll. Several polls show some as much as near 20 percent. With those bumps it means momentum has been established and the tide is turning.

With the simple fact that Lamar Alexander is

Pro Amnesty
Pro Obamacare funding
Pro Common Core
Pro Obamas war on coal
Pro cutting veterans benefits 
Pro higher taxes
Pro voting with Obama/Dems 63 percent, should be enough to send this old Pro-fessional politician home to retire.

Several things must happen to make this prediction possible and send Lamar packing.

- YOU must get out and vote!
– YOU must get 10 of your best friends to go with you to the polls.
– WE must be on the look out for fraud and illegal practices at the polls.
– WE must continue to get the word
 out on social media and on the net.
-WE must continue to notify people of liberal Lamars record.
– We must visit our local GOP Chapters and convince them Lamar must go.
– We must also apply pressure on our state reps to let go of the RINO ties that bind them. Lamar is not good for TN. They will let go when you tell them too.
– Democrats and illegal immigrants must not vote for Alexander.
-Report any illegal events observed to your local election commission or DA and demand action immediately.
-Continue going door to door.
– Show up at the Restore America: Joe Carr for Senate Rally on July 22 at 7 p.m. The event is at the Millenium Maxwell Hotel in Nashville.

Have a great day!

BCN, Bradley County News with it 3000 plus subscribers, near 250,000 readers in 164 countries predicts the upset, YOU must make it happen! Get busy Tennessee! 

CARR NOT LAMAR!

Lamar Alexander voted for Obamacare, but said he didn’t

In Government on July 11, 2014 at 6:46 AM

Lamar Alexander voted for Obamacare, but said he didn’t

07/11/14
0637 am

Lamar Alexander voted for Obamacare!

No amount of trickery can deny this fact. The man is not being forthright in his dealings with the citizens of TN and the United States.

A recent TV ad touted by the Alexander campaign shows Alexander banging it out with Obama on Obamacare in 2010. This is where the opposition ended.

He even stated he was right for this decision to oppose Obamacare. But sadly the ad failed to mention his continued funding of and support for  the Presidents failed and highly unpopular policy on healthcare since that time.

Hiding these issues does not settle well with voters as eventually the truth surfaced and many turned their heads on a politician that speaks out of both sides of his mouth. It’s double talk and severely underestimates the citizens of TN and their ability to see through the lies and deception.

This deception seems to be the establishments plan for Alexander. He has recently also denied he voted for the Amnesty bill yet voted with the Gang of Eight to move it forward for a vote.

“The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) responded (recently) to the television ad released by the re-election campaign of U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), which says he stood up to President Obama on Obamacare. Alexander’s TV ad includes a clip of an exchange he had with the President at the White House health care summit on February 25, 2010. 

“However, it conveniently leaves out any mention of Alexander’s vote to fund the implementation of Obamacare on March 20, 2013. It also leaves out his support for the Wyden-Bennett health care bill, which included an unconstitutional individual mandate to force Americans to buy government-approved health insurance.”

“Lamar Alexander is doing everything he can to hide his liberal record on health care,”said SCF Executive Director Matt Hoskins. “He wants voters to think he’s fighting to stop Obamacare, but he supported the individual mandate and he voted for a bill that funded Obamacare earlier this year.”

The SCF reports that on “On August 2, 2007, Lamar Alexander cosponsored the Wyden-Bennett health care legislation, which included an individual mandate to force Americans to buy government-approved health insurance plans.”

“On March 20, 2013, Lamar Alexander voted in favor of the FY2013 continuing resolution, which included funding for the implementation of Obamacare!”

The SCF report further states “The U.S. Senate will vote on the FY2014 continuing resolution in September. Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) needs 60 votes to fund the implementation of Obamacare, but there are only 54 Democrats in the Senate. If Republicans like Lamar Alexander oppose it, they can stop it.”

“Lamar Alexander can’t have it both ways. If he votes to fund Obamacare, he’s for Obamacare.” added Hoskins. “He needs to stop misleading his constituents and pledge to oppose all funding for Obamacare.”

In summary, 

1) Lamar Alexander put on a dog and pony show for the cameras and showed a little opposition to Obamacare in 2010.

2) He voted to fund Obamacare in 2013.

3) He voted for the individual mandate.

4) He voted for the Wyden-Bennett health care bill, that forced you to buy healthcare insurance and the individual mandate.

5) He will more than likely vote to continue funding for Obamacare in September 2014.

5) Yes, he voted for Obamacare!!!

Hopefully, Liberal Lamar Alexander will be retired after this next primary  and true conservative leadership will have been established.

Id give my vote to Joe Carr, if I were you.

Joe Carr picks up huge Tea Party Patriots Fund endorsement in TN US Senate race

Joe Carr picks up huge Tea Party Patriots Fund endorsement in TN US Senate race

07/11/2014
0438 am

Tennessee US Senate candidate Joe Carr has picked up another very hearty conservative Tea Party endorsement yesterday.

The Tea Party and conservative support continues to pour in across the state in his bid for the US Senate Seat currently held by liberal Lamar Alexander.

Jenny Beth Martin and the Tea Party Parriots Citizen Fund have put their support behind Joe Carr.

It is obvious he is a viable candidate to knock off a Democratic and establishment GOP favorite.

Lamar Alexanders support continues to dwindle in TN as Tennesseans begin to wake up and see the long time “career politician” is leading the state in a direction that is the opposite of it’s citizenry’s needs and wants. 

Voting 63 percent of the time with Barrack Hussein Obama and in favor of Amnesty and Obamacare is not in line with what Tennesseans believe is in the best interest of the state.

Tea Party Patriots Citizen Funds Jenny Beth Martin spoke highly of Joe Carr when questioned in an interview with Brietbart.com,  “Joe Carr embodies the values of personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future,” TPPCF Chairman Jenny Beth Martin said in a statement. 

“In contrast to his incumbent opponent, Joe is willing to take the fight to both liberal Democrats and establishment Republicans in defense of liberty.”

Martin highlighted Carr’s anti-amnesty record on illegal immigration, citing the issue as a critical one for the Tea Party in the 2014 elections.

“While Joe Carr has been a genuine leader – not just a reliable vote – in the fight against illegal immigration, Lamar Alexander voted with Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid and John McCain for the Gang of Eight amnesty bill,” Martin said. 

“Joe wants to preserve American sovereignty; Lamar Alexander’s policies are producing a human wave of criminality and disease on the Rio Grande.”

Martin also pointed out that Alexander sought to work with Harry Reid on Obamacare, voting for cloture to bring the bill to the Senate floor.

“Lamar Alexander is wrong on Obamacare and wrong on amnesty,” Martin added. “Fortunately, conservatives in Tennessee have a choice, and we urge them to give Joe Carr their vote and their support. We’re proud to endorse him.”

“I am very proud that the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund has joined with us in our fight against a broken Washington establishment led by Lamar Alexander, who put the interests of 11 million illegal immigrants ahead of our working families,” said Carr in a statement. 

In parting, if you don’t get out and vote, the establishment wins and you lose! Encourage friends and family to get behind the vest choice to lead this state and this country.

Common Core: Report on Common Core/ PARCC delay in TN State House

In Government on March 14, 2014 at 11:34 AM

Common Core: Report on Common Core/PARCC delay in Tn State House

Hello friends and readers. 

Alot of activity in Nashville this week. A Common Core and PARCC delay of 2 years was compromised after calling for repeal.

On the front lines and doing an exceptional job is none other than Karen Bracken of Tennessee Against Common Core, Lauri Day and Julie West.

These ladies went to bat for you and your children this week, although not getting a full repeal they managed to broker a  delay of 2 years while shedding light on the process and informing the public. Despite the circumstances and heavy political games this battle is to be considered a victory. “We have to stay diligent,” said Karen Bracken, founder of Tennessee Against Common Core. “It’s not what we want, but it’s more than we expected today. We’re very happy.”

Here is her update on the rally which offers some insight into the battle that waged and those legislators opposing their efforts.

Please go to: www.tnacc.net and read other interesting articles and offer them some financial support. This constant war on Common Core and the political elite is not cheap!

COMMON CORE RALLY DETAILS

“If education has become – as Common Core openly declares – preparation for work in the global economy, then this situation is far worse than Common Core critics ever anticipated.  And the concerns about cost, and quality and yes, even the constitutionality of Common Core, pale in comparison to the concerns for the hearts, minds and souls of American children.” Dr. Daniel Copeland, Hillsdale College

WOW WHAT A WEEK!!! BUT WE ARE NOT DONE!!!

On Monday we took over their hearing room.

On Tuesday we took over the War Memorial Plaza with a cast of quests that were unequaled and a crowd of citizens that warmed our hearts on a miserable cold day.

On Wednesday we saw our government at work.  At times it seemed more like a Laurel and Hardy movie but the point was made and the case won.  Our legislators attached 32 education amendments to HB1129/SB1266 in order to by-pass the Education Committees to repeal Common Core and withdraw from PARCC.  This tactic forced leadership to allow our voice to be heard. We did not get our repeal. But we did get a lot of good press and people in Nashville are very nervous.  We did get an amendment passed that will delay PARCC for 2 years; but be very cautious here.   New lipstick on a pig doesn’t change the fact that it is a still a pig.  And they passed an amendment to stop the implementation of Common Core.  Again, caution here.  Common Core is already implemented.  The other national standards coming down the pike ARE national standards but they ARE NOT COMMON CORE and we need to educate our legislators on this fact.  But take heart.  There are other pieces of legislation that spell this out.

So above you have a quick overview. 

URGENT ACTION ITEMS – We are getting down to the wire.  Only a couple more weeks of session left.  We cannot stop now!!!

1. Friday 3/14, Saturday 3/15, Sunday 3/16 and Monday 3/17 – hit the phone lines and emails hard!!!  List is attached.  We need you to call and email all Education Committee members in both houses. 
House Sub Committee -
YES vote on HB2332 (Repeal Common Core, Sponsored by Rep. Rick Womick)

House Full Education Committee -
NO vote on HB1693 (for-profits to open Charter Schools, Sponsored by Rep. John DeBerry) and HB1959 (Parent trigger, Sponsored by Rep. John DeBerry)
This is the same Rep. DeBerry that got over $100K from Students First in his last election.

Senate Education Committee -
YES vote for SB2405 (Repeal Common Core, Sponsor is Senator Mae Beavers) 

YES vote for SB2153 (will require State School Board to be elected instead of appointed – THIS IS A CRITICALLY IMPORTANT BILL, Sponsored by Sen. Niceley) 

SHARE AND GET EVERYONE TO CALL.  The only reason we have the repeal bills scheduled is because of your calls and emails and our 3 day event.  So making noise does work.
Be polite.  Please be prepared to let them know why you do not like Common Core.

2. Tuesday, March 18 – Pack up the kids again and come to an early morning hearing on Rep. Womick’s REPEAL COMMON CORE BILL (HB2332 is #3 on the lineup)   Room 30,  08:00am 

3.  Wednesday, March 19 – The Senate Repeal bill is scheduled as #40 on the list.  If you come on Wednesday be prepared for a long session.  We have not been making calls to the Senate Education Committee so they are not aware of how we feel. So hit them HARD HARD HARD.  There is no Senate Education Sub Committee so this is a big deal for this bill.  09:30am CST Room 12

Urgent: 7 year old boy needs lifesaving med, Big Pharma Chemerix will not release drug

In Government, Uncategorized on March 11, 2014 at 10:23 AM

Urgent: 7 year old boy needs lifesaving med, Big Pharma Chemerix will not release drug

03/11/14
1018 am

A little 7 year old boy lies on his death bed today. He reportedly has about a week to live and is dying with a preventable disease. A Big Pharma company Chemerix will not release the drug Brincidofovir to this child, at this time the only known drug that could save his life.

Josh Hardy, who has battled cancer for the last two years has developed a secondary infection as a result of that treatment.

The pathogen that has entered his blood stream is called Adenovirus. This virus is usually overcome easily with patients with a normal immune system. Pink eye is a form of Adenovirus. 

Josh does not have a normal functioning immune system, he is still very sick from a bone marrow transplant he had recently as part of his ongoing treatment.

Doctors at St. Jude recommended Josh be treated with Brincidofovir – an antiviral drug that has been proven to clear up adenovirus in children within two weeks

However, Brincidofovir, the only known treatment for Josh is in stage 3 trials awaiting FDA approval and is in the hands of drug maker Chemerix.

I am confident the reason Chemerix is not releasing this drug is that they are protecting their investment. The drug is reportedly on the brink of approval and because of successful trials the drug has been requested to be placed on the FDA “fast track”, a common occurrence when the drug shows promise of saving lives if implemented and approved quickly.

What could be worse than a drug company giving this drug to a child outside a trial and it not work as stated? But the company has already stated the drug works and well enough for an FDA fast track. 

You would think the oncoming high profile nature of this case will surely outweigh  Chemerixs concerns over whether it works or not or whether their bottom line will be affected.

After all, Chemerix stands to profit billions once the FDA approval process is completed. God forbid a little dying boy stand in the way of a company and it’s profits.

Chemerix CEO Kenneth I. Moch has said in several interviews that it is a cost issue and has recently been quoted as saying it is an ethical decision that if he does it for this kids many more will come forward. And the drug was developed for what reason? 

If Chemerix’s CEO had stepped back and thought about this a moment and changed his direction the public would be clamoring to get this drug on the market, praising this company and its innivation,begging for fast FDA approval to save this little boys life, but instead the public is calling for the removal of their big capitalist heads.

There is something unique about Americans in that they can somehow manage put all indifferences aside and rally around a little boy dying from a curable infection and face a large corporation withholding the cure. I love this about America.

A private individual has offered the 50,000 dollars it would cost to treat this individual and Chemerix once again denied to treat the young dying boy.

The family of young Josh Hardy is asking now for Chemerix to allow a compassionate user request which would facilitate Josh getting the treatment he needs bypassing FDA approval. This is where you are needed. To date, nearly 900 patients in trial have been treated with this drug thus far.

March 7th, 2014, Chemerix released this statement on their website. To me it shows how close they are to releasing this drug for approval, assuring the safety of it’s delivery.

“We are enthusiastic about brincidofovir’s potential to prevent clinically significant viral infections in bone marrow transplant recipients, and look forward to expanding the compound’s development activities to other DNA viruses and other patient populations, (to include Adenovirus in immunocompromised patients) said Kenneth I. Moch, President and CEO of Chimerix….. we are working to prepare our pre-launch strategies and to establish our commercial infrastructure.”

http://www.noodls.com/view/84C28A18F011CC8A9DA4E4F8250C6B0DC46FBC1F

Interestingly, Chemerix has received  72 million in federal tax dollars to research this drug to fruition. Chemerix also reported a near 900 percent profit margin for 2013 which formulates to 10s of millions in profit for the pharmaceutical company.

In summary, a little 7 year old boy is dying and has reportedly a week to live with a treatable disease. A big Pharmaceutical company has the cure, Chemerix refuses to offer the drug that may save his life and the companies profit margin and ethical dilemmas are being cited as reasons for their denial.

Good Lord help us all! Bare grassroots people like you and I can make a difference. 

We can call and demand the result we want especially as our tax dollars are being used to develop the drug needed for this young boy and being held from him.

Let’s see if we an make a difference! Spread the word. Contact the numbers below.

My call to Chemerix has been unanswered as yet but I did leave a message. Let’s jam up the phone and email lines and see if we can save this young boys life.

To contact Chemerix and support this young boy and perhaps save his life, give Chemerix a call and spread the word to your social networking friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Disaster Preparation: The only video you will ever need to see

In environment, Government on December 13, 2012 at 10:54 PM

This will probably be the most important information that you may receive in your lifetime. The information contained in this video will go a long way in assisting you in preparing for the end times and when and if the “ball drops”, so to speak.

We are living in a very unstable world and how you will survive in the immediate aftermath as the rest of the nation is scurrying around looking for food, shelter, water and protection you had best be prepared to keep your family safe and fed with the proper tools to help you survive.

Chris Privette recently spoke to the Tea Party of Bradley in Cleveland Tennessee and he left many nuggets of wisdom and when he was immediately done many people approached me and said please get this out on video and please let us have in our hands the info he just presented.

As is the case at many of our meetings Mike and Pat Mallard with Tin Ship Productions, http://www.tinshipproductions.com have created another masterpiece and have spent many hours editing almost 3 hours of video down to about an hour and a half. Their site at the address above is chocked full of “real life” videos and tell a story about many atrocious things that are happening as our country charts a course for a certain demise. Please visit the site and download some of the awesome videos they have recorded over the last few years.

You are about to watch the most important video you will ever watch. The mindset that must be taken, the preparation that must be done, a detailed list of the perfect “go bag” is all in here. The nuggets of information being shared comes from many years of life experiences and battles that have been waged. Chris steps into an area that has had very little national attention. He is sharing with you, free of charge his plan for prepping and surviving the Zombie Apocalypse or martial law enforced by a fake president that has expressed and made it known that he is not about protecting the constitution and your rights.

Take this video, watch it for your self, take notes put your own survival plan together then reach out to your extended family and friends so they too can put together a plan to survive when the stuff hits the fan.

In this video you will find comfort in knowing this will be the only video you need to watch to be prepared for the certain tough times ahead. Think about how you will feel when you know you have watched this video and then prepared as Chris Privette has taught you. The first day after and the weeks to come will be much smoother
and the knowledge that you have gained just by watching a 90 minute video will be invaluable, priceless.

You owe it to your family. You owe it to your self to step up, man or woman up and do the right thing! I am already working on my “go bag”, how about you?

Are you ready? Get started today. Then pass this along to your
many friends and family. It is totally up to you, get started now!

See ya at the rally point.

TN Secretary Tre Hargett: UN/OSCE will adhere to state election laws

In Government on November 2, 2012 at 1:07 PM

Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett and State Election Chief Mark Goins generously shared about 30 minutes from their busy morning for a telephone conference with me regarding the UN/OSCE poll watching issue.

As in a conversation reported between the Secretary of State Hargett and Tn State Senator Mike Bell he assured me that every person that enters the polling area will be subject to the laws of the state of Tennessee.

He went on to say you, me, the OSCE will be held to the letter of the law if we break the law, just as all people would.

I spoke with the two officials regarding several topics and out of respect for the Secretary and Chief Goins I will not divulge any other information in this venue because I was not speaking as a reporter/blogger but as a concerned citizen, and I do keep my word.

On some issues we agreed to disagree. The point is both were representative of the people and they gave freely of their time to me who had many questions and they provided answers.

Isn’t that what our elected representative are supposed to do?

It’s kinda refreshing.

Oh well, perhaps just a good day!

ALEC- Big corporation “bill mill” members revealed, has local ties

Revealing a “bill mill” member list that has numerous corporate influences has proven to be a difficult task. Although no one really appears to want to be associated with this group, the list has been evasive but not insurmountable.

In case you were wandering, TN State Rep 24 District Kevin Brooks and State Senator 9th District Mike Bell are on this list with Julia Hurley, Gerald McCormick and recently RINO hunted and ousted Debra Maggart.

ALEC’s own website misdirected me and left me with no results when I pressed the tab for a complete membership list. This prompted me to request via email to a Mrs K. Jones to reveal that list, which at the time of this posting has not been answered.

The level of influence this semi secretive fascist group has on legislation that hits the State Senate and House floor is phenomenal. ALEC boasts about a thousand successful bills that have ranged from cutting large corporate taxes to defunding public schools and shifting public money to private education.

Largely this group identifies itself as a conservative group with grassroots ties but many of their proposed bills over the years has suggested otherwise.

Scanning over the list of elected and non elected officials I see many RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) tied to NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) and PPPs (Public Private Partnerships)

It does not surprise me that the Gates Foundation recently donated almost a half million dollars to the group to promote educational And other issues but later pulled it’s membership but left it’s donation. Sort of tells me they were in and out with the cash. Sort of like a lobbyist would do to get a bill passed.

The KOCH brothers essentially creating and funding this organization with many corporate membership fees deepens the involvement of the bureaucracy that is influencing our elected officials and getting their bills to the house floor. Being of multi billion dollar oil fortunes, it again doesnt surprise me that around 15 oil companies are on the corporate list of manipulators.

Struggling public schools are meeting heavier challenges as ALEC passes legislation through it’s educational committee that is crippling the local education cash flow. Our very own 24th District Tennessee State Representative Kevin Brooks is on the education board.

I am all about we need to reign in our public schools and the endless flow of taxpayer dollars that get sucked up by huge vacuums of red tape and lucrative paying jobs for top brass. I think it is more important to recognize those that are behind the scenes making this more difficult. Our State Legislator publicly supports public education but the “model legislation” that cones out of ALEC is the opposite. I am preparing a blog about the bills that have been passed through ALEC’s Education committee to support my claim. The info is out there it is just disguised very well and warrants many hours of research to expose it.

Take a look at the people, the companies and the outside organizations, many international, that are working with ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) to influence legislation that affects you.

At first glance you think these bills that are being tossed out of ALEC are the genius of a very productive legislator or Senator, when in fact they are nothing more than a clone of a big corporation with an avenue to destroy the free market through favoritism and manipulation.

ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It is not just a lobby or a front group; it is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, corporations hand state legislators their wishlists to benefit their bottom line. Corporations fund almost all of ALEC’s operations. They pay for a seat on ALEC task forces where corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills.

Tennessee legislators and Senators that are members of ALEC. Not surprising locally our very own State Representative Kevin Brooks and State Senator Mike Bell are on board with this fascist group.

Tea Party confronts Cleveland City Council on first amendment

In Government on August 14, 2012 at 8:52 AM

Press release
Delivered to Cleveland Tennessee City Council
August 13, 2012

Tea Party of Bradley County
Cleveland, Tennessee

Mayor Tom Rowland and City Council,

On June 18th, 2012 I witnessed first hand the Cleveland City Council and it’s Mayor Tom Rowland display behavior uncharacteristic of a free Republic bound to the US, the State Constitution and the Cleveland Charter.

With this most recent breech, it is safe to say that our 1st Amendment rights are in peril in Bradley County, Tennessee. There is still an egregious resolution on the books that has yet to be reversed that limits our freedom of speech.

Cleveland, Tennessee City Mayor Tom Rowland, with a unanimous resolution vote of 7 to 0 by his council, ordered an investigation using police force to hunt down, arrest and expose members of my group as we made efforts to inform the community of horrendous plans for their community, thus criminalizing free speech. Thankfully the local Sherrif and the 10th judicial District Attorney saw this as what it was, an expression of free speech, thus curtailing a manhunt, further public humiliation and a possible federal prison sentence.

The Mayor and Council took offense to a flyer that was passed out to the community surrounding the old Whirlpool site warning of the demolition and redevelopment of 300 plus homes in south Cleveland. This flyer contained truthful and accurate information based on the last known public meeting where that information was provided. The White paper draft plan is the last known information that has been made available to the public in a public setting. Since much public outcry and protest of these proposed actions a revised edition of that plan has been revealed in what can be best construed as a change made in private setting.

Only after approximately 7 days of public humiliation was this latest information provided. The latest information was reportedly released after strong community concern and protest and the white paper was supposedly changed. This change then reflected the negation of the previous proposed draft that called for demolition and redevelopment of 300 plus homes in the downtown area. The latest adoption of this plan has not been made known to the public except when the press inquired about the original draft plan.

Since this time, the Tea Party of Bradley County held a town hall meeting. The Mayor and 7 council members were invited by certified mail. Only one councilman Bill Estes and one County Planner bothered to show up to confront approximately 150 civilians, a great portion residents from the Southside of Cleveland concerned about their livelihood and the security of their private property.

This would have afforded a great opportunity for this Mayor and his council to address their concerns and put them at ease. Instead with the exception of one city councilman, this governing body missed a fantastic opportunity to answer the citizens question they represent. This missed opportunity tells of the disconnect this body has with the people they represent.

I am convinced that this initial offering of information was only a shot across the bow of what is coming to our community, specifically the downtown area. Since this time we have heard further debate of eminent domain, demolition and development at the Ocoee/25th street exchange and on highway 60 around and through the Georgetown community, where many acres of private property will be taken by proposed growth plans. The exact action where just a few weeks prior this body condemned, reprimanded and investigated citizens of this county for informing the community about. With this doublespeak and deception I am convinced eminent domain will be a major implementation tool to revamp the downtown area and the county as the BCC 2035 Joint Strategic plan is further implemented. The Chambers Doug Berry has said it is a given, I draw from this comment that eminent domain will be used to develop our city and county. With this most recent resolution the Mayor and his council have successfully criminalized free speech in Bradley County.

This move by Mayor Tom Rowland created much fear and caused several to hide in fear of retaliation. Since the Mayors press conference basically calling this action illegal, mean spirited and untruthful has caused a great pummeling by the local media, the Chamber of Commerce, locally elected officials and planners on many citizens of Cleveland Tennessee. While siding with Mayor Rowland this group has relentlessy worked to discredit and tarnish the reputations of many within our group with lies and falsehoods further adding to the endless attacks upon it’s citizens and criminalizing our actions.

The Mayor and his Council with one swift vote has caused great harm to the citizens of this community. This action should embarrass this administration as efforts were made vigorously to squelch our first amendment rights. The attacks have been consistent and have even led to further allegations of potential wrong doing on the part of the Tea Party.

The damage and embarrassment this administration has done to this community can probably never be undone but this Mayor and City council by rescinding this resolution and replacing it with a new confirmation may start the healing process. I am asking that this governing body make the needed changes within the next 2 weeks of this date calling for a revision and replacement of the aforementioned resolution and a confirmation that our free speech rights will remain intact in perpetuity.

We must not let this action go unchecked because of the seriousness of it’s content for it’s citizens. No Mayor or representative of government at any level should have the power to stifle and quash free speech and plant fear into the hearts of its citizens at his will simply for exercising their God given constitutional rights to assemble, speak and redress our government.

Let me remind you that this is no game and you cannot simply throw your constituency to the wolves as a sacrificial lamb for your own selfish reasons. The lives you intend to destroy from this pulpit are not willing to continue to take your repeated lashing at their integrity. Playing with people’s lives at the risk of political expediency is a dangerous game and leaves many potentially hurt within the path of tyrannical behavior.

Our forefathers wrote the constitution to prevent the actions that the Mayor and his council have taken. No form of government should be so mighty and powerful to think it does not have to answer to the people or to the constitution that protects us all. No Mayor or his council should ever appear from behind our constitutional cover and lash out toward the people you represent while swinging a swath of destruction that has no boundaries.

We are asking Mayor Rowland and his council to publicly apologize and strike down his freedom eliminating resolution and replace it with another resolution proclaiming that our liberties and freedoms are restored and respected by a government that is clearly out of touch with it’s citizens.

Our actions to retain an attorney was decided upon after a thorough evaluation of the seriousness of the charges that were levied against Cleveland and Bradley County Citizens. The continuous attacks by our government and others have had a temporary and long lasting effect on the movement of our Tea Party and has caused many to “hide” from fear of misaligned exposure and criminalization. According to recent information provided this is not the first action by this council to squelch free speech, a pattern of abuse of power is now presenting itself.

We must shed light on this runaway government and end it’s frightening tactics. We must end the tyranny today, for those that may choose to live in Bradley County tomorrow.

Liberty must outlast tyranny, the attacks of a few should never be accepted as the political norm and the law of the land, placing the Constitution as an afterthought. It’s people must continue to fight regardless of the attempts to take away those rights and on occasion must stand to reclaim those rights given to us by God almighty.

Sincerely,
Donny Harwood
President 
Tea Party of Bradley County

Here is an article by the Chattanoogan that refers to the hiring of our attorney Stuart James to fight this resolution or vote.
