This salute to Middle Tennessee Republicans is yet another attempt to “fool” or “sway”  public opinion into thinking Lamar Alexander is still a Republican and  a conservative.

His despicable voting record and the fact that he votes with Democrats and Obama 63 percent tells me he is a RINO, a Republican In Name Only.

Let’s show up and let US Senator Alexander know that we do not approve of his message.

Our country is going to hades in a handbasket and we look toward DC for help and for as far as we can see is the same species of politician surrounded by big interests money and lobbyist with their hand out, all looking the same and none standing out as being different.

Senator Alexander has harmed our state, our families, our bank accounts and schools because of his votes and liberal ways.

We all know that he is a darling of the press and that they are not doing their job in truthfully reporting the real story, that he is not standing with his party.

Senator Alexander has made a lucrative career out of politics and has been very comfortable from his perch atop the liberal elite heep in DC!

Ask Senator Alexander to explain his net worth today over $30+ million as a US Senator.  Senator Alexander can easily be the poster boy for those parents counseling their children about careers in public service. 
 
Upon graduation from school, the senator took his first job working for the federal government and has known little else but public service. Why would he vote with the left? Simple, it pays well!  His partnership with the socialists has yielded him about one million dollars per year doing…you know…public service.
 
This “love fest” for Lamar Alexander will be a great place to see who shows up to support him. In this setting as an elected representative, you show up, you support his liberal ways.

Come to our Party and wave as your US Congressman or other elected rep drives past you on her/his way to show their unwavering support for our senior senator who is more Democrat than Republican.
 
If you have had any doubt that he is a RINO, please observe his votes below and realize the impact that each has on you and this country and you too will share in my sentiments that this man is a RINOs RINO!

Voted against the National Right to Work Act

Former Democratic Senator Elbert Guillory explains “Why I am a Republican”

In Uncategorized on July 7, 2013 at 8:06 AM

Former Democratic Senator Elbert Guillory: “Why I Am a Republican”

Former Democrat Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory stuns many with his decision to switch parties and become a Republican.

This video provided  needs no explanation of it’s content. One only   need listen as this man eloquently explains what is happening in our country. 

He sees the moral and fiscal decline of our country being led by a leftist, communistic, socialist fake president. He captures the essence and heart beat of a generation that demands freedom from government enslavement that is begging for strong leadership. He masterfully expresses a desire to once again get off the government plantation that is binding the will of a free people and enslaving us all.

Please watch, then reread the transcript as this visionary allows you to hear the most inspirational speech many of us have heard in a long time.

Perhaps as this man leads the way, the Republican party will once again find it’s message from its early founders and capitalize on this mans message. He gets it and now let’s make sure the Republicans get it, let’s make sure all Americans get it. 

We have very little time to save our country and I believe this man has tapped into a vein of prosperity for us all that needs to be heard by the masses. He nails it!

Transcript:

“Hello, my name is Elbert Lee Guillory, and I’m the senator for the twenty-fourth district right here in beautiful Louisiana. Recently I made what many are referring to as a ‘bold decision’ to switch my party affiliation to the Republican Party. I wanted to take a moment to explain why I became a Republican, and also to explain why I don’t think it was a bold decision at all. It is the right decision — not only for me — but for all my brothers and sisters in the black community.

“You see, in recent history the Democrat Party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people. Somehow it’s been forgotten that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.

“Frederick Douglass called Republicans the ‘Party of freedom and progress,’ and the first Republican president was Abraham Lincoln, the author of the Emancipation Proclamation. It was the Republicans in Congress who authored the thirtheenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments giving former slaves citizenship, voting rights, and due process of law.

“The Democrats on the other hand were the Party of Jim Crow. It was Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners. It was the Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who championed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, but it was Democrats in the Senate who filibustered the bill.

“You see, at the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing — control. And they disguise this control as charity. Programs such as welfare, food stamps, these programs aren’t designed to lift black Americans out of poverty, they were always intended as a mechanism for politicians to control black the black community.

“The idea that blacks, or anyone for that matter, need the the government to get ahead in life is despicable. And even more important, this idea is a failure. Our commnunities are just as poor as they’ve always been. Our schools continue to fail children. Our prisons are filled with young black men who should be at home being fathers. Our self-initiative and our self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them.

“Sometimes I wonder if the word freedom is tossed around so frequently in our society that it has become a cliché.

“The idea of freedom is complex and it is all-encompassing. It’s the idea that the economy must remain free of government persuasion. It’s the idea that the press must operate without government intrusion. And it’s the idea that the emails and phone records of Americans should remain free from government search and siezure. It’s the idea that parents must be the decision makers in regards to their childrens education — not some government bureaucrat.

“But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness free from government dependence and free from government control. Because to be truly free is to be reliant on no one other than the author of our destiny. These are the ideas at the core of the Republican Party, and it is why I am a Republican.

“So my brothers and sisters of the American community, please join with me today in abandoning the government plantation and the Party of dissapointment. So that we may all echo the words of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘free at last, free at last, thank God Almight, we are free at last.’”

Take hold of this thought process America. It is key to our freedom. The OBAMA administration has been exposed, now let’s create the change we want!

HR 933: “Monsanto Protection Act”, TN reps Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann contribute to “food apocalypse”

In Uncategorized on June 19, 2013 at 9:13 AM

HR 933: “Monsanto Protection Act”, TN reps Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann contribute to “food apocalypse”

A food apocalypse and eventual takeover of our natural food supply is fully underway and many Americans are not even aware of it, for that matter, many who voted  for it did not know it existed either or so they claim.

May 28, 2013, The Monsanto 71, a nefarious group of US Senators, such as Tennessee Senators Lamar Alexander, Bob Corker along with Cruz, Paul, Grassley and 66 others blocked the efforts of a Senate Amendment to label food that is genetically modified, altered or pesticide laden and offered by Monsanto and Sygenta. 

The measure doesnt call for the elimination of Monsanto or anything too risky politically, just the labeling of those foods you consume that may be detrimental to you. The bills intent was to only warn you that by consuming this genetically modified food you may be putting your health at risk. Simple right? A no brainer? Not so!

You know it’s your choice to eat what you want but it’s going to harm you in the process kinda labeling. Thats all and our progressive Senators Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann couldnt muster enough morality to stop it.

What influence could turn these Senators into uncaring selfish mindless jello capable of placing the interests of large corporations over the health and safety of those they represent?  

I believe the answer may be the money that these large corporations leave in the trail when they blaze through their offices. 

Large corporate money from Monsanto and Syngenta in exchange for their vote may be the culprit.

Even more disturbing is the recent action of our US House and US Senate.

“The US House of Representatives quietly passed a last-minute addition to the Agricultural Appropriations Bill for 2013 recently – including a provision protecting genetically modified seeds from litigation in the face of health risks.

The rider, which is officially known as the Farmer Assurance Provision, has been derided by opponents of biotech lobbying as the “Monsanto Protection Act,” as it would strip federal courts of the authority to immediately halt the planting and sale of genetically modified (GMO) seed crop regardless of any consumer health concerns.

The provision, also decried as a “biotech rider,” should have gone through the Agricultural or Judiciary Committees for review. Instead, no hearings were held, and the piece was evidently unknown to most prior to its approval as part of HR 993, the short-term funding bill that was approved to avoid a federal government shutdown.” 

Our elected leaders, so desperate to save the economy by extending it’s debt, they forgot to read section 735 within HR 933!

On March 26th, 2013,  Obama quietly signed this “Monsanto Protection Act” into law thus ensuring the American people have no recourse against this bio-tech giant as they fall ill by the tens of millions, and many millions will surely end up dying in what many call the greatest agricultural apocalypse in human history.

Many of our elected leaders are now claiming they didn’t even know this provision was buried deep inside a bill meant to stop the government “from shutting down!” This is a horrible shame!

Senator Jeff Merkley (D)  has called for a repeal of the Monsanto Protection Act and said this on May 20th, 2013 in a recent email,

“It’s one of the most outrageous special interest provisions in years.”

“The Monsanto Protection Act allows corporations to sell genetically-modified seeds even when federal courts have blocked them from doing so. ”

“Just May 30 th, 2013 the FDA found genetically modified Monsanto wheat in our present supply of wheat for consumption by Americans even at the defiance of the courts who have ruled this cannot happen. (Round up doesn’t even kill this wheat for goodness sake, added for emphasis!)

“Think about that! We have a process for making sure that genetically-modified seeds aren’t sold, planted and grown until we know that they don’t pose a threat to other crops or to humans.”

“The Monsanto Protection Act overrides that process. It lets Monsanto and others ignore a court order designed to protect other farmers, the environment, and human health.”

“That’s just wrong.”

“And even worse, the Monsanto Protection Act was passed in secret, stuffed quietly into the budget bill that averted a government shutdown.”

“That’s why I’ve proposed an amendment to the Farm Bill that would repeal the Monsanto Protection Act. Please join me – and demand a vote in the U.S. Senate that would end this outrageous special interest override of judicial decisions.”

-Senator Jeff Merkley

The Monsanto Protection Act was  passed in the US Senate and US House on the backs of some prominent liberal progressives like the ever present US Senator Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander and in the House from Tennessee Congressman 3rd District Chuck Fleischmann. These elected leaders should hear from you about this recent vote.

Interesting to note, US Congressman Scott DeJarlais voted NO to the Monsanto Protection Act, swimming swiftly against the TN Tide of progressives in our state that had succumbed to Corporate Welfare in exchange for the safety and welfare of all Tennesseans.

Obviously, the recent votes by Senator Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann will affect millions and possibly jeopardize our agricultural eco balance. The votes by our US Senators have labeled the mockingly as the “Monsanto 71”, not a group you would want watching your children, just sayin!

The impending apocalypse that is steaming hurriedly toward us will affect us for many years and may perhaps wipe out our generation. 

The EU, Russia and Patriots all over America are warning us of the impending food apocalypse. Here is an example of this happening from 2010 and the same folks pushed the food and modernization act onto our doorsteps.
https://bradleycountynews.wordpress.com/2011/08/19/food-police-say-illegal-to-growsharetrade-or-sell-homegrown-food/

Let’s take a futuristic look and see the dilemma and the environment these useful idiots are creating for you and me. Let’s see where a few seemingly benign votes may take us.

Into the near future- Our ability to grow and produce our own food independent of the large corporations and the federal government is upon us.  Our food chain is in some serious trouble. We will soon be looking for assistance from these large corporations and guess what they will provide it to you via your government with their own guidelines for distribution to the masses regardless of the harm it may cause you. You, in America, have not yet been without access to food but that is about to change.The food apocalypse is coming.

The narrow window of opportunity is closing to stop the likes of Monsanto, Syngenta and others take over our food supply as our elected representatives like Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann yield to the massive corporate dollars and the George Soros funded Monsanto. 

Take our bee population for instance. We may not fully understand the process our bees have on our food supply, but we can agree that if they dont pollinate our food, we dont have food, your sustenance for a future generation.

Protection of Monsanto and  Syngenta by our Legislators, the inevitable will surely happen.

The purposeful contamination of our food supply with the deliberate poisoning and destruction of 90% of feral (wild) bee population in the US has already died out, and up to 80% of domestic bees have died out too. Your food is not being pollinated and your ability to replant seeds for food is no longer there. Sterile seeds now dominate our seed supply and the heirloom seeds are safely tucked away and controlled.

The EU (European Union) Times is reporting “Undisputed evidence” that a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically related to nicotine, known as neonicotinoids, are destroying our planets bee population, and which if left unchecked could destroy our world’s ability to grow enough food to feed its population. Do I even need to interject the importance of bees in our survival and these large corporations that are killing them with these additives known as Monsanto insecticides

“So grave has this situation become, the European Commission (EC) is instituting a two-year precautionary ban (set to begin on 1 December 2013) on these“bee killing” pesticides following the lead of many  other countries, all of whom had previously banned these most dangerous of genetically altered organisms from being used on the continent.” 

Russia is warning Obama that  Monsanto is playing a major role in our demise and then we offer them protection empowered by our own US Senators and Congressmen. The food apocalypse is pending!

This chilling scenario is much like a sci-fi movie that depicts the end of the world! But it’s not a movie, it is happening now, this week.

President Putin and Russia is telling Obama that the continued protection of global seed and plant bio-genetic giants Syngenta and Monsanto in the face of a growing “bee/food apocalypse”  “will most certainly” lead to world war 3.

To date, the Obama regime is refusing to discuss the upcoming food/bee apocalypse with world leaders and Tennessee US Senators Corker, Alexander and US Congressman Chuck Fleischmann have not offered to rescind their vote on the “Monsanto Protection Act!” 

There is undeniable “undisputed evidence” that a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically related to nicotine, known as neonicotinoids, are destroying our planets bee population, and if left unchecked could destroy our world’s ability to grow enough food to feed its population. See the Bees-Food apocalypse connection?

Two of the most feared neonicotinoids being banned are Actara and Cruiser made by the Swiss global bio-tech seed and pesticide giant Syngenta AG.

In assorted reports Syngenta, along with bio-tech giants Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and DuPont, now control nearly 100% of the global market for genetically modified pesticides, plants and seeds. Thus our demise and the start of the food apocalypse.

Syngenta, inside our little apocalyptic scenario was criminally charged in Germany for concealing the fact that its genetically modified corn killed cattle in 2012. Syngenta, of course settled a class-action lawsuit in the US for $105 million after it was discovered they had contaminated the drinking supply of some 52 million Americans in more than 2,000 water districts with its “gender-bending” herbicide Atrazine. Did I mention population control inside this story line?

The American Bird Conservancy (ABC) wherein has warned our whole planet is in danger, and as we can, in part, read:

“As part of a study on impacts from the world’s most widely used class of insecticides, nicotine-like chemicals called neonicotinoids, American Bird Conservancy (ABC) is warning us “It is clear that these chemicals have the potential to affect entire food chains, citing environmental concerns of these “chemicals” pouring into our food chain as a severe health risk.

Many concerned organizations are concluding that the neonicotinoids are lethal to our bees, birds and to the aquatic systems on which they depend.

One researcher has offered that “A single corn kernel coated with a neonicotinoid can kill a songbird, a tiny grain of wheat or canola treated with the oldest neonicotinoid — called imidacloprid — can fatally poison a bird. And as little as 1/10th of a neonicotinoid-coated corn seed per day during egg-laying season is all that is needed to affect reproduction.”  We can only imagine what these insecticides will do to humans once we ingest food from our environment throughout the food chain engineered by Monsanto and Syngenta!

The levels already in our environment currently are enough to disrupt our food supply yet we continue to elect state and federal representatives that refuse to protect us from yes, a food apocalypse.

The Obama regime is currently facing legal challenges against the use of these awful chemicals.

I dont believe tightening EPA Standards is the complete answer and I really do not advocate for more federal meddling but they could at least protect us from these awful chemicals and hold the likes of Monsanto and Syngenta accountable for the release of these chemicals into our environment. 

The EPAs lack of response to these calls for accountability speak volumes about whom their bedfellows may be.

In other headlines, the European Commission is taking the tyrranical step to make it illegal to “grow, reproduce or trade” any vegetable seeds that have not been “tested, approved and accepted” by a new EU bureaucracy named the “EU Plant Variety Agency.”

It’s called the Plant Reproductive Material Law, and it attempts to put the government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from non-regulated seeds would be considered criminals under this law.”  Sounds eerily like the US “Food and Safety Food Modernization Act” passed in 2010.

Think about this! The best solution is our worst nightmare, the federal government potentially taking over all food and seeds to prevent a Monsanto and Sygenta takeover! 

Where does that leave us who like to eat and find it necessary for our own survival? Yes, with our hand outstretched begging for assistance from our federal government, to literally feed us.

The Obama regime, our elected reps are seemingly oblivious to the high speed bullet train in the form a food-bee apocalypse headed our way. But just ask a farmer, a beekeeper or expert what the status of our food supply is. They will tell you the truth.

While we wonder how these atrocious large companies get their power and influence, you need look no further than the Obama filled key posts filled with Monsanto people. They are abundant within this regime and a roll call would only bore you.

While Russia is making unprecedented discoveries of
Breast Cancer and organ failure links to Monsanto genetically modified corn, leading to it’s ban the US consumer unaware, continues to lap up corn like a hungry dog unfed.

In conclusion to my story telling time, the Obama regime, the Monsanto 71, Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander, Chuck Fleischmann and many other elected reps seemingly do not have the best interest of our country at hand. 

Their obvious attempts with their sworn vote to destroy this country is beyond rational thinking. 

The greenback has  clouded their vision and distorted their values, even more amazing and perplexing to me is the amount of gratitude we still give these people despite what they are doing to this country.

UN and Obama prepare for March vote to take our guns

In Agenda 21 on December 5, 2012 at 5:06 PM

If you read no further than the copied paragraph below you have gone far enough to alert you to what OBAMA and the UN are planning come March on the International stage.

Remember, and I have told you many times. The United Nations will eventually be our international governing body. They will soon rule us from an international platform taking our sovereignty and our Constitution with it unless we stop it!

Here is the most recent list of actions the UN and your fake president will be voting on in March. If you choose to sleep, hug your gun closely and prepare to let her go!

*** Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;

*** CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);

*** BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;

*** Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

Dear fellow Patriot,

Gun-grabbers around the globe believe they have it made.

You see, only hours after re-election, Barack Obama immediately made a move for gun control…

On November 7th, his administration gleefully voted at the UN for a renewed effort to pass the “Small Arms Treaty.”

I don’t know about you, but watching anti-American globalists plot against our Constitution makes me sick.

What’s worse, the UN set March 18th-28th to meet to pass the final version of the treaty that will be sent to the Senate for ratification.

You and I will only have a few short months to prepare for this battle…

If we’re to succeed, we must fight back now.

That’s why I’m helping lead the fight to defeat the UN “Small Arms Treaty” in the United States Senate.

And it’s why I need your help today.

Will you join me by taking a public stand against the UN “Small Arms Treaty” and sign the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey right away?

Ultimately, UN bureaucrats will stop at nothing to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

So far, the gun-grabbers have successfully kept many of their schemes under wraps.

But looking at previous attempts by the UN to pass global gun control, you and I can get a good idea of what’s likely in the works.

You can bet the UN is working to FORCE the U.S. to implement every single one of these anti-gun policies:
*** Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;

*** CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);

*** BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;

*** Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this is NOT a fight we can afford to lose.

Ever since its founding 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees.

To the petty dictators and one-world socialists who control the UN, the United States of America isn’t a “shining city on a hill” — it’s an affront to their grand designs for the globe.

These anti-gun globalists know that as long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide power they crave.

And the UN’s apologists also know the most effective way to finally strip you and me of ALL our freedoms would be to DESTROY our gun rights.

That’s why I was so excited to see the National Association for Gun Rights leading the fight to stop the UN “Small Arms Treaty!”

Will you join them by going on record AGAINST global gun control and sign the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey today?

The truth is there’s no time to waste.

You and I have to be prepared for this fight to move FAST.

The fact is the last thing the gun-grabbers at the UN and in Washington, D.C. want is for you and me to have time to mobilize gun owners to defeat this radical agenda.

They’ve made that mistake before, and we’ve made them pay, defeating EVERY attempt to ram the UN Small Arms Treaty into law since the mid-1990s.

But now time may not be on our side.

In fact, we’re likely to only have a few weeks to defeat them when they make their move in March.

And worse… the UN Small Arms Treaty is no longer the only UN scheme threatening our gun rights.

More and more of the UN’s radical agenda is slipping through covertly, under the cover of domestic legislation.

Not long ago, Obama told Sarah Brady from the anti-gun Brady Campaign, “I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control].  We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

In fact, Hillary Clinton’s State Department recently bragged that Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious are implementations of the UN’s anti-gun agenda!

And I’d place a wager that Obama’s M1 Rifle Re-importation Ban was also the UN’s agenda dutifully executed by his administration.

Anti-gun UN policy that NEVER received a single vote in the United States Congress!

The UN will meet soon to pass a final version of the “Small Arms Treaty” to be sent for ratification by the Senate.

But even worse than a renewed mandate, the General Assembly could vote by simple majority to implement the “Small Arms Treaty.”

This would bypass any further meetings and would allow them to insist that member states ratify the treaty immediately.

So if you and I are going to defeat them, we have to turn the heat up on Washington now before it’s too late!
1. Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?

2. Do you believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede your Constitutional rights must be opposed?

If you said “Yes!” to these questions, please sign the survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

But I hope you’ll do more than just sign your survey today.

With your help, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue to turn up the heat on targeted Senators who are working to implement the UN “Small Arms Treaty.”

Direct mail.  Phones.  E-mail.  Blogs.  Guest editorials.  Press conferences.  Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits.  The whole nine yards.

Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.

But that’s not easy, and we may not have much time.

In fact, if gun owners are going to defeat the UN’s schemes, pro-gun Americans like you and me have to get involved NOW!

So please put yourself on record AGAINST the UN Gun Ban by signing NAGR’s Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

But along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.

And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

Here is the survey to take to send a strong message to the US Senate that our 2nd Amendment rights are not negotiable.

Obama and baby Jesus share manger in Italian Nativity scene

In Uncategorized on November 17, 2012 at 12:25 PM

And this shall be a sign unto you; You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.-Luke 2:12

Wait is that baby Jesus? Nope! Its Obama right next to Baby Jesus and the lovely queen Michelle. A new savior to the world. A leader among leaders, the omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent.

Joy to the World the fake prez has come to save the world.

I’m having fun right now but if this wasn’t so rediculous it would be taken serious. Italy and it’s many wood crafters have elected to put OBAMA and the Michelle in with baby Jesus to express their love for the future New World Order leader.

Not my choice, but hey, they can do what they want to the sacred image of Christs birth. Right? Read the rest of the story below from the blaze.com, I’m going to Supermart today and get me one before they sell out!

President Barack Obama, riding on the heels of his historic electoral victory this week, has another accomplishment to boot: He will be included, as a character, in traditional Italian nativity scenes in Naples this Christmas. No, we’re not joking. 

The president is poised, in figurine form, to appear next to baby Jesus, other Biblical characters and numerous other politicians who are being infused into the traditional holiday story.

As noted, Obama isn’t the only contemporary figure created for inclusion in nativities. According to Euronews (see additional video here), Mitt Romney is also a newfound nativity character.

While one of the Obama designs comes complete with a crown, a depiction of the former Republican candidate comes with tears streaming down his face (i.e. a reaction to his electoral loss). KSEE-TV explains the fascinating development in detail:

Italian shopkeepers are now selling a new figurine for people to put in their nativity scenes. Shops selling nativity figurines are including miniature president Barack Obamas. Some of the figurines hold a sign that reads, “God bless America.”  Craftspeople have been carving nativity scenes in Naples since the 19th century. The scenes include figurines of important people of the times.

This year, though, isn’t Obama’s first foray into the nativity figurine business. In 2008, the president and his wife, Michelle, also appeared in the un-traditional Italian displays.

Following the 2008 election, Reuters reported that the Obamas popped up “in Italian nativity scenes…alongside the baby Jesus and wise men.” At the time, the outlet continued:

The production of handmade figurines for nativity scenes is big business in this southern Italian city and has been for centuries.
But beyond the thousands of angel, sheep, Mary and Joseph figures filling market stalls before Christmas, craftsmen say Obama has become a top seller.

Tradition requires that the nativity scene be built up over time until Christmas Eve, when baby Jesus is put in the manger as the very last element of the display.

As always, figurine-makers provide a chance to choose a more light-hearted approach for the scene providing replicas of personalities who have made the news during the last year.

Not everyone is fond of this modern interpretation of the nativity, which also includes other world leaders beyond Obama. Some believe that it sullies the image and message behind the traditional Biblical story of Jesus’ birth.

“Something as beautiful as the traditional nativity scene shouldn’t be spoiled by these figurines of personalities and I don’t think children like them,” local Pasquale Oliva said back in 2008.

OBAMA appoints terrorist sympathizer Al-Marayati to OSCE post

In Uncategorized on November 2, 2012 at 7:06 AM

Salam al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), was chosen to represent the United States government at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s (OSCE) annual 10-day human rights conference, the Human Dimension Implementation Meetings (HDIM). The conference concluded last week in Warsaw and Mr. al Marayati’s appointment to the delegation may have been largely overlooked due to the furor over the threats by the Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott to arrest OSCE election monitors.

Al Marayati has been widely criticized for his support of Hamas and Hezbollah; both listed by the United States government as terrorist organizations. Mr. al Marayati insists the groups are engaged in providing social programs and humanitarian assistance to the residents of Gaza and Lebanon and he refuses to condemn them for their repeated acts of terrorism; cynically referring to the murder of Israeli civilians as “quote unquote military operations.”

Al-Marayatis appointment by Obama was highly criticized in Jewish media as Counter-terrorism expert Steve Emerson told The Jewish Press that “Al-Marayati’s appointment is not just scandalous but also does incalculable damage to our values as a nation whose core principles categorically reject the legitimization of a racist supporter of terrorism, and an incendiary proponent of paranoid conspiracies that provides the motivation for radical Muslims to carry out terrorism.”

Al-Marayati was recently quoted as saying at an OSCE Human Right conference in WARSAW, yes home of the largest Jewish ghettos and population centers said, “the situation of Muslims as a religious minority in America.”  He quoted President Obama’s 2009 Cairo speech, in which he said, “‘it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit – for instance, by dictating what clothes a Muslim woman should wear,’” and called for “governments to ‘stop targeting Muslims through legislation or policy, and instead enshrine the ground of religion or belief as a prohibited ground of discrimination in all realms.”

Steve Emerson, one of the premier counter-terrorism experts, and someone who has conducted extensive research into Al-Marayati’s background, told The Jewish Press,

For this administration to appoint (Al-Marayati) to a human rights organization, who has openly supported Hezbollah, claimed that the FBI has illegally incited Muslims on terrorism charges because of FBI sanctioned policies of “racial profiling,” has defended as innocent the most notorious members of Hamas who were found guilty of laundering millions of dollars to a terrorist group, and someone who has complained of ‘having the Holocaust shoved down [his] throat,’ is an outrage.

Emerson suggested  that the appointment of Al-Marayati as a representative of the U.S. at one of the world’s largest human rights conference, cries out for a congressional investigation of the larger and more heinous scandal of the unprecedented degree to which the Obama administration has embraced and collaborated with radical Muslim groups in the U.S. whose lineage derives directly from the world wide totalitarian Muslim Brotherhood movement.

The larger picture of why there are UN/OSCE “poll watchers” in Nashville Tennessee and across the US to observe our next election is becoming clearer by the day as my research is revealing.

The deafening silence from our State Legislators, Senators and our Governor Bill Haslam is becoming more understandable as the days pass. The muzzling of our elected leaders seems to be in unison and planned, perhaps suggesting complicity with Islamic extremist and the political correctness that has become acceptable as we coddle the same people that want to cripple our country.

Sprinkle in the flurry of new mosques in Nashville, ALECs model legislation, corporate funded Voter ID bill, appointment by Haslam of a Sharia Finance expert to a high level position within our own Tennessee Government with ties to sheiks and immams associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. The appointment of Al-Marayati to the OSCE who happens to be in Nashville Tennessee monitoring, intimidating voters and perhaps swaying the vote any way they can.

The recent requests of the NAACP, SEIU and the ACLU to monitor our elections is suspect. The United Nations involvement in our elections, Former ACORN (True Vote) consulting with OSCE on what to look for in the way of Election fraud while being one of the worst offenders of election fraud in recent history is ascnine. The Reverend Al Sharpton sacheting his “brigades of poll watchers” into town to spew hate and promote racism would be comical if not so sad. Our elected officials allowing this to brew and spew over into our communities is rediculous and the integrity of our election potentially being jeopardized is disheartening and begs of someone to be held responsible for their open appeasement.

Furthermore, the Anti-Defamation League spokesperson had this to say about Obamas appointment of Al-Mayarati to the OSCE Commission: “It is regrettable that someone with such distorted, conspiratorial views—even with a lackluster apology—is delegated by our government to represent our country abroad,”

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, argued that the State Department is showing inconsistency by touting an individual who has defended the militant groups Hezbollah and Hamas, both of which are designated by the U.S. as terrorist organizations.

“One would assume that individuals selected to represent the United States at an international human rights conclave would share our government’s longstanding policy that Hamas and Hezbollah are dangerous terrorist organizations,” Cooper told the Free Beacon. “But Mr. Salam al-Marayati and his organization are long-time advocates that these deadly terror groups be removed from the U.S. terrorist list.”

“With terrorism continuing to boil the Middle East,” Cooper added, “the question is why the U.S. State Department would say he is ‘highly credible’?”

Josh Block, a former Clinton administration official who now serves as CEO of The Israel Project, said the State Department’s defense of al-Marayati lacks credibility.

“That statement, defending a person who is clearly a terrorist sympathizer and deeply hostile to Israel, calls into question the credibility of the person who gave it, and it raises a very serious question: What exactly is the U.S. government saying here?” Block asked.

“It is inexplicable and deeply concerning that a person who has suggested Israel was responsible for the 9/11 attacks and advocated for terrorist organizations including Hamas and Hezbollah, which has killed more Americans than any terrorist group except al Qaeda, would be described as ‘valued’ and ‘highly credible’ by our government,” Block said.

The State Department, however, defended al-Marayati’s participation, calling him “valued and highly credible.”

Remember, these so called “valued and highly credible” people are inside our borders, represented by the United Nations and are monitoring our elections and may even influence the outcome or spark riots in the streets if the outcome of the election is not to their liking.

God help us America. Our best hope is that our elected officials will wake up and stop this takeover of our government and everything it represents.

Humbly my opinions and we all know what opinions are like.

Texas AG puts foot down over UN poll watchers in letter to Clinton

In Uncategorized on November 1, 2012 at 11:34 AM

Text of the letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:

October 25, 2012

The Honorable
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
2201 C Street NW
Washington, D.C. 20520

Dear Madam Secretary:

Yesterday you received a letter from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) asking that the U.S. Department of State take steps to ensure the OSCE’s election observers are not “restrained in their activities” while in the State of Texas. It appears that OSCE is under the misimpression that the State Department can somehow help its representatives circumvent the Texas Election Code. Texas law prohibits unauthorized persons from entering a polling place—or loitering within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance—on Election Day. OSCE monitors are expected to follow that law like everyone else.

As you know, Texas election laws govern anyone who participates in Texas elections. The fact that representatives of the United States joined the U.S.S.R, Yugoslavia, Romania, and other OSCE member-nations in signing a document at a 1989 conference in Copenhagen has absolutely no bearing on the administration of elections or laws governing elections in the State of Texas. Yet the OSCE invokes the 1990 OSCE Copenhagen Document to seek your help ensuring that its representatives are not “restrained” by Texas law. If the OSCE wishes to visit Texas during election season, we welcome the opportunity to educate its representatives about the State’s electoral process. But OSCE is not above the law and its representatives must at all times comply with Texas law when they are present in this state.

While the 1990 OSCE Copenhagen Document cited in the OSCE letter is legally irrelevant and will have no impact on the State’s administration of the November elections, for the sake of accuracy you should know that the letter misconstrues OSCE’s own governing documents. Indeed, the OSCE claims that requiring its representatives to comply with Texas law somehow contravenes paragraph 8 of the Copenhagen document. That is false.

In fact, paragraph 8 specifically stipulates that OSCE representatives may only observe elections “to the extent allowed by law.” As you know, in the United States that means both state and federal law. The OSCE’s letter states only that its observers are committed to compliance “with all national laws and regulations.” This statement may simply reveal that the OSCE is unfamiliar with our nation’s federalist system. On the other hand, it may reveal that the OSCE does not consider itself restrained by state law. Texas needs OSCE’s assurance that its representatives will abide by Texas law when they are present in this state. We have not received that assurance.

In addition to my desire to defend and enforce Texas election laws, I am also concerned that an unnecessary political agenda may have infected OSCE’s election monitoring activities. The OSCE has published policy recommendations and other reports that raise objections to state laws that prohibit convicted felons from voting, prevent voter registration fraud, and require voters to present a photo identification at the polling place. The OSCE may object to photo identification laws and prohibitions on felons voting—but our nation’s Supreme Court has upheld both laws as entirely consistent with the U.S. Constitution. And perhaps ironically, the OSCE representative leading the mission to the United States hails from the Netherlands, which has a photo identification law for voters. According to the Dutch government’s official website: “checking identity documents helps fight fraud.” Why the OSCE appears to now question voter identification laws in the United States is beyond reason. Perhaps it is just politics. Regardless, the OSCE’s perspective on Voter ID is legally irrelevant in the United States.

Indeed, contrary to the principles of “political pluralism” articulated in the 1990 OSCE Copenhagen Document, the OSCE has recently coordinated with a number of plainly partisan organizations in the United States. This appears to reflect a concerted effort to politicize an initiative that was previously perceived as an international information exchange program. While Texas may welcome visitors from any nation or international organization who wish to learn more about the steps the State has taken to protect the integrity of state elections, we need not open our doors and accommodate an international effort affiliated with partisan organizations in the United States that wish to suppress electoral integrity.

The case in point is OSCE’s coordination with Project Vote, an overtly partisan organization that was founded by and closely affiliated with ACORN. As you know, ACORN collapsed in the wake of a national voter registration fraud scandal that resulted in multiple criminal prosecutions for violations of state and federal election laws. Just this week, Project Vote boasted that it was advising OSCE on which issues to study—and which states to monitor—this election cycle. In light of Project Vote’s history of voter registration fraud and its more recent failed attempt to enjoin Texas election laws that were enacted to prevent fraud, no legitimate international body would affiliate with Project Vote. Consequently, OSCE’s affiliation with this dubious organization necessarily undermines its credibility and the independence of its election monitors.

Rather than work closely with domestic partisan organizations to advance their shared political agenda, the OSCE should consult the report that President Jimmy Carter and Secretary of State James Baker issued as co-chairmen of the bipartisan Commission on Federal Election Reform. As you know, President Carter is one of the world’s most well-known election monitors. Given President Carter’s experience in this area, it is noteworthy that the report he authored found: “The electoral system cannot inspire confidence if no safeguards exist to deter and detect fraud or to confirm the identity of voters.” Apparently the Netherlands agrees with that assessment, which is why the Dutch government similarly requires voters to present a photo identification before casting their ballots.

The United States Constitution authorizes the States to regulate the conduct of state and federal elections within their borders. In Texas, the Legislature has exercised its prerogative to implement laws that preclude felons from voting, prevent groups like Project Vote from questionable voter registration activities, and instill confidence in the electoral system by requiring voters to present a photo identification. While we welcome international visitors who wish to engage in a legitimate information exchange, we have no interest in being lectured by the OSCE about how best to conduct the State of Texas’ business.

Unlike the unelected bureaucrats at the OSCE, our State’s leaders and decision-makers were duly elected by Texas voters. Elected members of the Texas Legislature enacted the Texas Election Code to ensure our State’s elections are free, fair, open, and reliable. The Election Code does not authorize OSCE’s representatives to enter the polling place and nothing in a document that may govern the OSCE’s conduct has any impact—legal or otherwise—on the conduct of elections in the State of Texas. If the OSCE does not wish to follow the laws that govern everyone else present in the State of Texas, including the voters who elect our State’s leaders, then perhaps it should dispatch its representatives to another state.

In closing, I have a simple request: Please work with the OSCE to ensure they agree to comply with Texas law. If they refuse to do so, OSCE’s representatives may be subject to legal consequences associated with any violations of state law.

Sincerely,
Greg Abbott
Attorney General of Texas

Obama, Clinton grant UN “poll watchers” diplomatic immunity, Texas AG says “bring it”

In Uncategorized on November 1, 2012 at 11:05 AM

BCN Note- A showdown between Lone Star Texans Attorney General Abbott, Governor Rick Perry and Communist, Marxist and Socialist Barrack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton is quickly heating up over UN Monitors from the OSCE observing our elections.

As attention to this battle intensifies the fangs are coming out and the real reasons the United Nations are in our back yard is starting to come to light!

Obama granting this OSCE “poll watching” group “full diplomatic immunity”, meaning they are above the law and not required to follow our state election laws speaks volumes of why they are in our country.

When groups like ACORN (True Vote) although defunct are still very active under another name, ACLU, NAACP, SEIU, Al Sharpton you know there is an agenda. It seems this UN/OSCE delegation which has now grown to 150 or so has turned from apolitical to partisan. Recent research has revealed that the constitutional voter ID laws are the fuel that is igniting their increased presence in Tennessee and the US.

It is evident that their continued and increasing presence at polling places all over the US is going to fan a possible revolution if Obama loses that will be preceeded with a massive deluge of lawsuits challenging our elections and they will have the strength of an international body at their backs. Mark my word it’s clear as crystal.

Please read the article below and visit the New American website for many more outstanding articles. It was so informative I wanted to keep my rants short.

Obama Backs UN-linked Election Monitors, but Texas Stands Firm
Written by  Alex Newman

http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/13415-obama-backs-un-linked-election-monitors-but-texas-stands-firm

As the national scandal over United Nations-linked “elections monitors” in the United States continues to grow after Texas threatened potential prosecutions, the international outfit deploying “observers” demanded that the Obama administration come to its aid. The U.S. State Department promptly claimed that the UN-affiliated monitors would have “full” diplomatic immunity. But in the Lone Star State, officials fired back and upped the ante: Don’t mess with Texas.

On October 23, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott sent a strongly worded letter to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) warning that its representatives could be prosecuted if they violate state law or are found within 100 feet of a polling place. Among the most serious concerns was the fact that the UN partner organization was working with discredited far-left radical groups to supposedly seek out conservative “voter suppression” schemes — mostly state laws aimed at preventing election fraud.

In a statement, the OSCE also said it would monitor “compliance” with unspecified “international obligations” supposedly applicable to the United States. The controversial organization, which includes as members the governments and dictators ruling Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, and other nations, responded to Texas with its own letter to the U.S. State Department warning against any efforts to “restrain” its personnel.

“The threat of criminal sanctions against OSCE/ODIHR observers is unacceptable,” complained Janez Lenarcic, chief of the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) monitoring operations. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.” (Emphasis added.)  

The Obama administration responded to the controversy by purporting to offer the international “elections monitors” supposed “diplomatic immunity” — essentially claiming that they were above the law, even in Texas. The two monitors for Texas, scheduled to be deployed in Austin, are Conny Jensen from Denmark and Melanie Leathers from the United Kingdom, documents show. In an October 26 press conference, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland claimed that “in general, we give them protected status.”

The spokesperson also claimed there were “no sovereignty issues” involved, emphasizing, as Texas’s attorney general did, that the OSCE obviously has no authority over the states it chooses to monitor. “They have said that they do not intend to violate any laws while in the United States,” Nuland claimed. “So we are going to let the conversations go forward between the OSCE and Texas and see how that goes.”

In the Lone Star State, however, officials did not take kindly to the international whining or the Obama administration’s response. “No UN monitors/inspectors will be part of any TX election process,” tweeted Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a Republican, in support of his chief law-enforcement officer. GOP U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz, a popular conservative who made opposition to UN schemes a key part of his campaign, also saluted Abbot for standing up to the scandal-plagued international outfit.  

The Texas attorney general, meanwhile, remained defiant despite State Department pronouncements and OSCE complaining. “UN-related vote monitors warn Texas: Don’t mess with us. My response: BRING IT,” Abbott tweeted in response. He also quoted Sam Houston saying: “Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may.” Following the tweets, Abbot also sent an official letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton laying down the law. 

“It appears that OSCE is under the misimpression that the State Department can somehow help its representatives circumvent the Texas Election Code. Texas law prohibits unauthorized persons from entering a polling place — or loitering within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance — on Election Day,” the attorney general explained to Clinton. “OSCE monitors are expected to follow that law like everyone else.”

Of course, as Clinton already knows, Texas election laws govern anyone and everyone who wishes to participate in elections held in the Lone Star State, Abbott said. “The fact that representatives of the United States joined the U.S.S.R, Yugoslavia, Romania, and other OSCE member-nations in signing a document at a 1989 conference in Copenhagen has absolutely no bearing on the administration of elections or laws governing elections in the State of Texas,” he warned.

If the OSCE wants to visit Texas during the election, Abbott said the state would welcome the opportunity to educate its representatives about state elections — perhaps it could be useful to OSCE member regimes like the brutal communist tyrant ruling over Belarus. “But OSCE is not above the law and its representatives must at all times comply with Texas law when they are present in this state,” he added.

The 1990 OSCE governing document signed by the representatives of the U.S. government and cited by the international group in its pleas with the Obama administration is “legally irrelevant” in Texas and “will have no impact” on the way the state administers its election, Abbott pointed out. However, the attorney general still added that, even according to that agreement, observers are required to follow applicable law. In other words, the OSCE is making “false” claims.

In addition to misconstruing its own governing documents, in its letter to the Obama administration, the OSCE promised only to follow all “national” laws and regulations. “This statement may simply reveal that the OSCE is unfamiliar with our nation’s federalist system,” Abbott observed in his letter to Clinton. “On the other hand, it may reveal that the OSCE does not consider itself restrained by state law.”

In either case, Texas needs assurances from the OSCE that it intends to strictly comply with all state laws. So far, Abbott said, those assurances have not been forthcoming. There are other problems, too, however.  

“In addition to my desire to defend and enforce Texas election laws, I am also concerned that an unnecessary political agenda may have infected OSCE’s election monitoring activities,” the state’s top law enforcement officer explained, citing the international outfit’s objections to efforts aimed at preventing registration fraud as well as state laws requiring voter ID. “The OSCE may object to photo identification laws and prohibitions on felons voting — but our nation’s Supreme Court has upheld both laws as entirely consistent with the U.S. Constitution.”

Ironically, Abbott added, the OSCE’s U.S. election monitoring boss, diplomat Daan Everts, hails from the Netherlands, which requires that all voters present identification to help combat fraud. “Why the OSCE appears to now question voter identification laws in the United States is beyond reason. Perhaps it is just politics,” the letter stated. “Regardless, the OSCE’s perspective on Voter ID is legally irrelevant in the United States.”

Meanwhile, the attorney general also took the opportunity to blast the OSCE yet again for meeting with “plainly partisan” U.S. organizations. Among the American groups working with the OSCE are the NAACP, the ACLU, and assorted splinter groups like “Project Vote” formed after the taxpayer-funded, Obama-linked organization ACORN collapsed in disgrace amid charges of massive voting fraud.

In letters and meetings with the international monitors, those groups warned of alleged efforts by conservatives to “disenfranchise” minority voters. The OSCE promised to follow up on the half-baked accusations, drawing widespread criticism and ridicule across the country.

“This appears to reflect a concerted effort to politicize an initiative that was previously perceived as an international information exchange program,” Abbot wrote. “While Texas may welcome visitors from any nation or international organization who wish to learn more about the steps the State has taken to protect the integrity of state elections, we need not open our doors and accommodate an international effort affiliated with partisan organizations in the United States that wish to suppress electoral integrity.”

Of particular concern, Abbot said, was an organization known as Project Vote, which recently boasted that it was helping to advise the OSCE on what issues and jurisdictions to “monitor” this election. “In light of Project Vote’s history of voter registration fraud and its more recent failed attempt to enjoin Texas election laws that were enacted to prevent fraud, no legitimate international body would affiliate with Project Vote,” the attorney general wrote. “Consequently, OSCE’s affiliation with this dubious organization necessarily undermines its credibility and the independence of its election monitors.”

Abbott also took the opportunity to provide some constitutional education for Clinton and Washington, D.C., which seemingly view Texas and other sovereign U.S. states as mere provinces subject to the whims and dictates of the federal government. In the Lone Star State, at least, officials apparently know that the United States was founded under a system in which the central government has limited and specifically enumerated powers. 

“The United States Constitution authorizes the States to regulate the conduct of state and federal elections within their borders,” Abbott’s letter continues. “Unlike the unelected bureaucrats at the OSCE, our State’s leaders and decision-makers were duly elected by Texas voters. Elected members of the Texas Legislature enacted the Texas Election Code to ensure our State’s elections are free, fair, open, and reliable.”

Finally, the attorney general emphasized again, Texas’ election laws do not authorize OSCE representatives to enter polling places. If they do, there will be consequences. Nothing in any OSCE governing documents has any impact — legal or otherwise — on how elections are conducted in Texas, Abbott warned.

“If the OSCE does not wish to follow the laws that govern everyone else present in the State of Texas, including the voters who elect our State’s leaders, then perhaps it should dispatch its representatives to another state,” Abbot concluded. “In closing, I have a simple request: Please work with the OSCE to ensure they agree to comply with Texas law. If they refuse to do so, OSCE’s representatives may be subject to legal consequences associated with any violations of state law.”

Analysts and activists across the country promptly showered praise on the state of Texas and its officials for standing up to the controversial international scheme while protecting state sovereignty, constitutional values, and the rule of law. However, more than a few experts also warned that the UN and its affiliates were becoming increasingly threatening. If America hopes to maintain its freedom and sovereignty, it must continue to resist any and all efforts to impose or even legitimize purported international “authority” over the American people.

TN “It’s not working” campaign hopes to ignite fire across US at early polls

Dear Fellow Tennesseans,

I want to express great urgency in this letter to you. We are at an extremely volatile and pivotal time in our country’s survival. We are on the brink of collapse and the freedoms we now enjoy may be no more in the near future. Please continue to read and while reading be plotting out in your mind how you are going to spread this message to others.

This is not about endorsing a particular candidate. This is not about whether you are a Democrat, a Republican or Independent. This is about saving our country and getting our country pointed in the right direction again and quickly. It has to start with removing this sitting president from office with the power of the vote. Step 1 has to start with replacing Obama as our president, period. We must look at the most viable way, decide who that candidate is for this term and vote accordingly.

I have heard over and over I won’t vote one way or another or I just won’t vote. This is a pitiful excuse and by doing so allows the Obama regime another 4 years. We as Americans will continue to clean up this country after this election, but we must unite to save our country today, the here and now, in real time. We can start mapping out our future course the day after the election and hold the next President accountable as well and if he doesn’t fall in line we look at presenting a candidate for the next 4 years. A split vote or a no vote at this juncture will not be the best thing for our country right now.

Believe me, I too am all about getting sick of voting for the lesser of two evils. I too am sick of looking at the most viable candidate and holding my nose at the ballot. This dilemma is partially our fault because we have not spoken loud enough to make the needed change. We as Patriots have failed miserably to raise up a candidate from within our own ranks. We have also failed to support an alternative candidate into the Presidency. This election cycle has left me with a dilemma too but with much thought and internal strife I have come to the conclusion, Obama and his progressive communistic socialist type leadership has to go.

We must put our our full effort into this campaign. We need great numbers and alot of activity to get this man out of office.

Please pass this message along to everyone you know. Call, text, email or Facebook all your friends and tell them to get out and vote on October 17th, 2012! It’s the most important thing you can do as an American who loves their country.

You already know what must be done.

We can’t wait four more years..

To put people back to work
To pass a responsible budget and begin reducing our national debt
To drill for our own oil and gas
To restore respect for religious freedom and freedom of speech
To show respect to our allies overseas
To stop federal control of every part of our lives.
We can’t wait to elect a new president.

In Tennessee early voting starts on Oct 17th. Why wait to make your stand? Join us in sending a message to the rest of the country with these 3 easy actions.

The Tennessee plan that can be easily adopted by other states:

1.  Vote on October 17th, the first day of early voting in Tennessee

2.  Encourage your friends and family in TN to join you in voting on October 17th.

3.  Encourage your friends and family in other states to vote against the president as soon as their state allows.

On October 17th we will see you at the polls.

We Can’t Wait! 

Pass this along quickly!

US Arms Trade Treaty: UN appoints Iran to key role in negotiating away your 2nd Amendment rights

In Uncategorized on July 11, 2012 at 11:38 PM

BCNews note: Iran? Are you for real? Iran, with their lifelong stellar record on human rights has been put in charge of treaty enforcement that could eventually lead to us losing our guns and right to own them? Really? Is this the same UN that the Chamber of Commerce created several years ago? I’m sitting here with my tounge hanging out wandering what in the heck is going on? Why is the UN anywhere near our border with this bull?

Then I think again and it astounds me that we still give the Chamber of Commerce so much credibility in light of their Frankenstein type creation! Did anyone, even the Chamber think that they could create such an animal with such fangs. Then I think well everything the Chamber of Commerce does somehow points right back to the United Nations as if by design, as if they were trying to take over the world and replace her with some type of alternative plan. A plan so deviant even our neighbors couldn’t blame on the Chamber!

Where does it stop? When does someone say enough is enough? When does some brave soul say the UN has no right in our country so get the hades out!

Do we hand our guns over to a foreign entity at the behest of the Chamber that is in every community in the US and seemingly and well disguised as red white and blue as apple pie? Some are saying even if our senate repels this treaty our “gun info” will still be in the hands of the UN for global monitoring! Folks, better wake up! I have been told many times by many people “by golly if they come after my guns, then I’m gonna get mad” well, they are after your guns and will be real close to getting them as soon a July 27th, 2012.

Our two Senators in Tennessee Alexander and Corker cant seem to give anyone a straight answer when asked if they are going to vote on it or not! Senators this is a no brainer! This is the gem in the crown that keeps our nation and it’s people free! This is our second amendment rights! Please! What is so difficult about this.

UNITED NATIONS –  A treaty being hammered out this month at the United Nations — with Iran playing a key role — could expose the records of America’s gun owners to foreign governments — and, critics warn, eventually put the Second Amendment on global trial.

International talks in New York are going on throughout July on the final wording of the so-called Arms Trade Treaty, which supporters such as Amnesty International USA say would rein in unregulated weapons that kill an estimated 1,500 people daily around the world. But critics, including the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre, warn the treaty would mark a major step toward the eventual erosion of the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment gun-ownership rights.

Americans “just don’t want the UN to be acting as a global nanny with a global permission slip stating whether they can own a gun or not,” LaPierre said. “It cheapens our rights as American citizens, and weakens our sovereignty,” he warned in an exclusive interview with FoxNews.com from the halls of the UN negotiating chambers.

The world body has already been criticized for appointing Iran to a key role in the talks, even as Tehran stands accused by the UN of arming Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s bloody crackdown on rebels. The Obama administration in 2009 reversed Bush administration policy by agreeing to take part in the talks. But in another exclusive interview with FoxNews.com, the top government official on the issue under President Bush says he’s seen nothing new to convince him the U.S. should be at the table today.

While the treaty’s details are still under discussion, the document could straitjacket U.S. foreign policy to the point where Washington could be restricted from helping arm friends such as Taiwan and Israel, said Greg Suchan, Deputy Assistant Secretary in the State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs from 2000 to 2007.

Suchan also highlighted ongoing concern that the treaty may end up giving foreigners access to U.S. gun-ownership records.

On that score, LaPierre, who serves as NRA executive vice president, warns that the “UN’s refusal” to remove civilian firearms and ammunition from the scope of the treaty amounts to a declaration that only governments should be gun owners.

But he revealed he was set Wednesday to tell the UN gathering that 58 U.S. senators had signed a letter saying that they would refuse to ratify any treaty that includes controls over civilian guns or ammunition.

Ratification by two-thirds of the Senate is necessary before an international treaty negotiated by the executive branch can become U.S. law. But the treaty could still go into effect elsewhere once 65 countries ratify it. Such a development could change the pattern of world arms transfers and reduce the U.S. share, which stands at about 40 percent of up to $60 billion in global deals.

The Bush administration opposed a 2006 UN General Assembly resolution launching the treaty process, but President Obama decided the U.S. would take part on condition the final agreement be reached by consensus — thereby giving any of the 193 participating states an effective veto.

The safeguard is insufficient for opponents of the U.S. participation, not least because UN talks invariably involve compromise.

“The administration swears they have a whole bunch of red lines, and they will block consensus if anyone crosses them,” said Suchan, now a government relations consultant as senior associate with the Commonwealth Consulting Corporation in Arlington, Va.

“But the dynamics of international negotiations are that once you get 90 percent of what you seek, you say, ‘Maybe there is a way we can finesse the final 10 percent.’”

A clause permitting arms transfers solely between UN member states would allow UN member China to object to U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, a non-UN member that China considers to be a renegade province.

This would be highly problematic for the U.S. at a time when Beijing is engaged in an unprecedented arms buildup.

Another fear is that Arab or other states critical of Israel may use any treaty language on human rights standards to argue against U.S. arms transfers to the Israeli government – much in the same way they currently use the UN Human Rights Council to repeatedly condemn Israel.

Suchan said U.S. arms trade law is seen as the global “gold standard” for regulating arms transfers, but doubted many countries would be willing to raise the bar that high. Instead, the treaty that emerges is expected to set a lower global standard – which Suchan said would have the effect of reducing Washington’s ability to press for voluntary arms embargoes against rogue states.

“We might want to urge a country to not sell arms to a state whose government is particularly odious,” Suchan explained.

“But that government could then ask whether the sale is prohibited under the Arms Trade Treaty – and if it is not, they would argue they are meeting the international standard.”

U.S. gun lobby concern focuses on the emphasis the treaty places on governmental – as opposed to individual – rights to guns, LaPierre explained.

“They’re trying to impose a UN policy that gives guns to the governments – but the UN doesn’t in turn make moral judgments as to whether these governments are good or bad,” he said.

“If you’re the government, you get the guns, if you’re a civilian, you don’t. But this will just end up helping evil governments and tyrants.”

For LaPierre, the emphasis he sees at the UN on governmental rights reflects what he believes is a wider international tradition that contrasts with the historical American emphasis on individual rights.

“The UN view is that governments – not individual citizens – ought to protect people,” he said, signaling that this principle permeates the draft that negotiators are currently working with.

LaPierre says the treaty that is likely to emerge will have the effect of squeezing individual gun owners in the United States and elsewhere by imposing on them an onerous collection of regulations.

“If they get this through, then what comes along is the institutionalizing of the whole gun control-ban movement within the bureaucracy of UN – with a permanent funding mechanism that we [in America] will be mainly paying for,” he said.

“The world’s worst human rights abusers will end up voting for this, while the Obama administration has not drawn a line in the sand like the previous administration did. Instead, it is trying to be a part of this train wreck because they think they can somehow finesse it. But, to me, there is no finessing the individual freedoms of American citizens.”
