Chamber conducts “private” meeting about Common Core, parents forced to stand outside and protest

Chamber conducts “private” meeting about Common Core, parents forced to stand outside and protest

11/19/2013

A protest is planned this Friday as once again a closed meeting is being conducted inside a taxpayer funded (yes the COC is partially funded with taxpayer revenue) venue about Common Core away from the general public.

If this does not convince you that something sinister is happening you will never be convinced of it. This is the second time in as many weeks that “private” meetings are being held and the public is not being invited about Common Core.

It is obvious that this is a deliberate attempt to slide an agenda into place without parent or school board influence or input. Corporatism and Nationalism of our schools are one of the biggest mistakes that can be made that affects our children.

The subversive and covert actions by these sinister organizations with a hidden agenda is surely enough to convince you that something is up and you are not supposed to know about it.

Here is a support letter from the Chamber of Commerce as it relates to Common Core. 

Corporate America and Big expansive Government is now running the show and the direction of our schools. School board influence is dwindling and parents can no longer direct decision making. This is a very sad statement.

Modern day revolution in Manchester TN, like our forefathers, sparked with outrage and passion

Modern day revolution in Manchester TN, like our forefathers, sparked with outrage and passion

Looking back at the American Revolution John Adams concluded in 1818:

“The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people … This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.”

The subtle yet constant hints of a modern day revolution are surfacing in the United States as the Federal Government seizes more control of the states and the communities within our constitutional republic. The push back by Citizens on an empirical government has begun.

The Constitution was written to protect us from a tyrannical government, not used to institute laws and opinions to restrain the people and limit freedoms for any special groups or sects of Americans, it is for us all. I have rights also!

Subtle uprisings as seen in Manchester Tennessee are popping up all over the country. Passion is running high and we are on the crest of a movement set on securing our future.

Still in it’s infancy the steady drumbeat of revolution is seeping into conscious thought as a way to overcome an empirical Washington, the elitist, loyalist or Tories if you will, to tighten control on the farmer, the peasant, the patriot.

On display enmasse last evening at the Manchester Convention Center was a group of well over a thousand patriots gathered in one room.  In this setting, I witnessed a clash of two different ideologies and political systems.

The overwhelming concern was the DOJ, FBI forbearing the rights of a majority over the rights of the minority, circumventing the current law for sharia law.

The overwhelming realization that we all have the same rights under the  Constitution but that right is being altered because an Islamic political system refuses to live within stated boundaries and create their own Sharia compliant culture with separate carved out rights for a specific group that  ignores others rights.  

There was a quick realization that our country is changing and the liberal left is leading the charge.

A tense evening has revealed the federal government is taking a stand and protecting their six, alongside political islam.

The DOJ, the FBI and a federal leftist led government are preparing to lead the charge against the constitution while limiting free speech and carving out a niche for a requesting minority despite the rumblings of millions in our nation. 

The seemingly simple request to indict, monitor, prosecute and imprison Americans for speaking out against political Islam on social media has sparked outrage in the state of Tennessee. 

Representing first hand accounts, I witnessed on June 4th, 2013, around the water cooler, in and around the convention center, I heard the following;  “Why are my civil rights being suspended because another sect of our populace refuses to assimilate and adopt the nations laws that have existed for well over 250 years  inside a constitutional republic?” “Why must we be the ones to suffer because they demand it?” “Are we not protected by the Constitution?”

The first shot, figuratively of course, was fired tonight  in Manchester TN as concerned patriots in droves took a stand for the Constitution that has been the glue that has kept this country free.

Reviews and commentary was mixed after the large event on our stand for freedom as the huge crowd filed out and worked their way back to their humble abodes. Were we well represented and was our message affected?

The leftist media response was predictable and expected. “They were loud, they were obnoxious, racists, rude to the speakers, disrespectful and downright near militant as hundreds of right wing extremists gather in Manchester TN!”

Most surprising to me was the evaluation of many within the Tea Party that showed reservation for views expressed inside the venue an their overall performance.

A modern day revolution was launched from this room and we failed to recognize it as that.

The silence in the aftermath at what was probably the greatest stand in many years by the Tea Party and we walk away disappointed? 

Social media and Tea Party groups have gone silent in the aftermath of the convention and for what reason?  Perhaps we have allowed the leftist media to dictate to you political correctness, damping the spark that could cause a flame to create change, DONT DO IT! 

This was a glorious night where, yes, people spoke up and were loud and some even obnoxious but this is passion folks! This is patriotism!  This is a peaceful rebellion! The revolution many talk about all the time just happened. The people spoke up! This is the outrage that has been missing for a while in this country. 

Sure I asked for silence a few times because I thought it was necessary for us to hear what they had to say. The night is what it was! 

An ideological revolution against tyranny! LET IT BE! 

I overheard messages on the way out such as “We have lost our way”, “our message has been distorted”, the “fringe in the room showed their arses”, “we should have remained silent and we would have been more effective”, “the media will spin this as a bad thing.” NO!  We have found a common message and tapped into a vein that could fuel change. Does anyone remember the Occupy Wall Street embarrassment recently? This group tonight, tame by comparison, peacefully assembled and somehow the OWS guys seemingly get a leftist pass and our loud voices condemned. This is purposeful folks! Shame them into silence and they will shut up and go away!  Silent servitude never changed a country!

In all the perceived discord a memory of our not to distant past has been forgotten and a comparison of modern day patriots
to the warriors of the past was not drawn or just momentarily forgotten in our search to remain politically correct.

The evening was very mild if you compare it to the last American Revolution where burning houses, murder, tar and feathering were the routine for a nation of patriots trying to break free from a emperial tyrannical British government.

No arrests were made last evening, hundreds of people peaceably assembled in the scorching heat, provided taunts and insults toward a population that refuses to assimilate into American Culture yet demand change as part of their existence and yet  noone was tarred and feathered, no militia raids or charges on strongholds made. 

Objection to a litany of admiration for the Department of Justice, FBI and the federal government overreaching and offering “protection” for political Islam while issuing warnings to those Americans that do not comply to their requests while receiving biased treatment in front of freedom loving citizens is enough to spark outrage in any freedom loving patriot.

Remember, the media and this opposing political system system wanted to see a fight! They wanted a citizen to get out of line completely and the incident videoed and broadcasted for all the world to see. That did not happen, because tremendous restraint was exercised. Voicing discontent, raising your hands in the air and disrupting a meeting is not the nail that buries a movement. Please guys, I watched an OWS guy defecate on a police car, widespread drug use, rape and attempted murder last summer and somehow we view that as “they were upset an misunderstood!”  

We left the Manchester Convention Center, police cars clean, the women respected and drug or alcohol free, even singing and praying on occasion. The Convention hall was left in pretty good shape by comparison, no arrests, to my knowledge, no one was murdered, raped or tarred. Gosh! No one expected this from the Tea Party? Please! we have a track record for five years and so far not a single incident of disobedience unless you consider yelling in a room unlawful! This is not how we roll!

You did see the mood shift near intermission as the police and secret service flocked to the corners of the room near the halfway point and call off the intermission over “safety concerns and heightened tensions!” 

This was purposeful as if a
little drama would elicit a response requiring intervention. Even this was a failed attempt to evoke some “poor redneck” to act
out!  

Much to the event holders chagrin, the very large passionate group gathered outside for some old timey passionate rallying and chest thumping, filed in and out very orderly, grabbed some chips and spicy salsa and some lemonade, then filed outside for another hour of speeches and evaluation and nothing reportable happened! Let me add once again, NO REPORTED EVENTS! Not a single arrest! 

Loud and obnoxious, if you saw it that way, perhaps but not against the law or the constitution. NO laws broken!!! This is something to be proud of!  

Passion is needed today in this world of passiveness. You wanted someone to speak up and act and exercise their freedom of speech, you got it tonight, the right way! Now embrace it.

The night was not all fueled by the jeers in the room from the patriotic crowd. The opposing side had a game plan too. 

The plan as I viewed it initially was for AMAC, OIC and the DOJ to appear as solemn, quiet and hushed  victims. 

The subdued atmosphere with a bowed chin and quiet demeanor, perhaps a reflection of their culture, but it was very obvious. The line of demarcation was being drawn! The itended road map route changed as many speakers became intolerant and reactive to some of the loud objections. The tone changed from somber to snarky, mean spirited, challenging and condescending as the nerves of the speakers became frazzled.

At one point, while viewing an obviously propaganda style 15 to 20 minute video that displayed dissent in the public around Murfreesboro over the recent building of the mosque depicting objectors to the mosque as white, poor, disheveled and redneck. 

Many in the room yelled “PROPAGANDA” and “TAQIYAH!!! The crowd was sarcastically challenged by the speaker as she raised her voice and said ” you are using words you don’t even understand.”

Another challenge came when one of the speakers said her family was eighth generation American after shouting down an attendee who said they were from six generations of Americans. She quickly countered with ” I was born and raised right here on Monteat Mountain” at which time the crowd shouted it’s “Monteagle Mountain!”

AG Killian took the podium and was met with stiff opposition when he started singing the praises of his “boss” AG Eric Holder. At this point he was in my opinion,rightfully set back with taunts especially after the recent displays of injustice displayed by “his boss” in light of the recent Benghazi, Fast and Furious, EPA, IRS and AP reporter scandals.

FBI Agent Moore while approaching the podium hearing the taunts and jeers regarding AG Holder stepped to the podium and shouted “Attorney General Eric Holder” and when boos rang out again he quickly and condescendingly chuckled and said “I just wanted to get out of the way ahead of time!”

He also went on to say after making some comments about social websites and the surveillance they are doing on it, countered defensively and laughingly said “if its on the Internet it must be true.”

Another speaker while giving a set of statistics only referencing a few Christian on Muslim violence cases refused to divulge the obvious 400 murders per day around the world of Islam murdering Christians every day and this was obvious to the throng of objectors. 

While reading the demographics she would over accenuate and raise her voice to say the word “white” often taunting more objection from the assembly.

Sure the evening was tense and at times a little loud and spirited but what American that values their freedom wouldn’t be? 

The mix of religion, politics, freedom, objections from the right and left caused quite a stir but has has left many in every community thinking about what is happening to our country and has caused many to speak up and come to her rescue.

Everything did not go without controversy, nor should you have expected it to do so. Doing so would mean we were mindless drones in a time warp.

Allow me to repeat loud and boisterous! The criticism of these patriots does not warrant counting out these great citizens as extremists or racists. This group showed up in mass tonight in support of their country and constitution and fought for it! Shame to you if you think otherwise!

If you were offended then you probably have not been engaged in the fight! The fight for freedom is tense and is worth fighting for. As my daddy used to say or some version thereof, ” If the dog cant hunt, stay on the porch and watch! 

The Main Stream Media will do what they are prompted to do by their Commander in Chief and depict this as a negative. I have simply chosen to make this a positive. 

For the last five years we have advocated for the “sheep to awaken from the sleep!” Well, that happened tonight and I in no way will discredit this very well orchestrated event where most everyone was on their best behavior in spite of the fact that we are about to lose our country to the left!  In my humble opinion, the Manchester TN revolution was a success.

A revolution as necessary as this one cannot be condemned. The table was set with many agendas and the purpose of this meeting was derailed and a strong message sent! Mess with our country, our rights and our
Constitution and you will surely meet the wrath of a peaceful, albeit, raucous rebellion. 

An ideological rebellion with a peaceful and non violent end is the preferred route. We don’t need the masses to approve to make our point. Three percent snagged our country out of the hands of the left with our might in the past and it can be done again.

I believe a strong message without violence can create the change we want. Knowledge, facts, social media and truth can win this war. If shouting upsets you then I request you to reevaluate where you stand in this rebellion! 

The peaceful rebellion has only begun.

I leave you with this quote from the link below:

Many Loyalists (the left) realized that independence was bound to come eventually, but they were fearful that revolution might lead to anarchy, tyranny or mob rule. 

In contrast, the prevailing attitude among Patriots, who made systematic efforts to use mob violence in a controlled manner, was a desire to seize the initiative. 

An author once wrote that Loyalists, (the British emperialists) were pessimists who lacked the confidence in the future displayed by the Patriot

Occupiers protesting “Black Friday”

In Occupiers on November 22, 2011 at 2:35 PM

AP
In an effort to raise awareness for “income inequality” and “corporate greed,” organizers of various Occupy chapters have revealed their newest move: “Occupy Black Friday.”

It’s what it sounds like.

The idea is that they will protest numerous retailers the day after Thanksgiving in an effort to disrupt credit card usage and their 4th quarter profits, thereby rattling the stock market.

On the website stopblackfriday.com, the organizers have written the following:

ON NOV. 25th: OCCUPY LARGE CHAINS AND PUBLICLY TRADED RETAIL. Hit the 1% where it hurts – in the wallet.
BLACKLISTED Retail Stores to Occupy (Boycott) on Black Friday
Keep in mind that we are not occupying small businesses or hardworking people — we must make a distinction between the businesses that are in the pockets of Wall Street and the businesses that serve our local communities.
We are NOT anti-capitalist. Just anti-crapitalist.
Below is a shortlist for publicly traded large businesses to Occupy or to boycott on Black Friday. Luckily, most of them don’t have good presents anyway. If you want to see the top 100 retail businesses for 2010 to boycott, click here.
On Black Friday, Occupy or boycott:
– Abercrombie & Fitch
– Amazon.com (yes, we have to stay away from Amazon, too!)
– AT&T Wireless
– Burlington Coat Factory
– Dick’s Sporting Goods (I was surprised, too!)
– Dollar Tree
– The Home Depot
– Neiman Marcus
– OfficeMax
– Toys R’Us
– Verizon Wireless
– Wal-Mart

Solidarity!
However, as pointed out by Commentary Magazine, there is one mega retailer missing from their list.

Want to take a guess?

Men’s Wearhouse. Despite the fact the clothing retailer regularly posts a profit from Black Friday sales, it has has managed to insulate itself from protests by “standing” with the “99%” (although one store did have its windows smashed during the Occupy Oakland riots).

Along with a “blacklist” of large retailers, the website also offers sign ideas for protesters who want to partake in the events:

And it’s not just a general boycott the Occupy organizers are calling for:

In addition to encouraging site visitors to not spend money on Friday, the website encourages occupation, and “Occupy” protesters typically have featured sit-ins, on-site camping, slogan cheering and sign-waving as their modes of protest.
Currently, many businesses are unhappy with the Occupy protests. For example, as Security Info Watch reports:

Businesses near Occupy Seattle on Capitol Hill say the protesters need to clean up their act and businesses near Westlake Park are worried demonstrators might ruin their Black Friday.
At least 150 Capitol Hill businesses have sent a letter to Occupy Seattle, which is currently occupying the south end of Seattle Central Community College. They say the camp is a health and safety risk, and they want the protesters to clean it up.
Given that many businesses and business owners are already displeased with the Occupy movement, a general boycott of their stores on Black Friday probably won’t help anything.

“The Occupy movement probably thinks it’s sticking it to the man with this protest, but it’s actually the local stores and their employees who are going to get hit with any of the fallout,” writes Commentary Magazine. “Poor sales mean more layoffs after the holiday season. Yet more evidence that the Occupy Wall Street movement isn’t actually interested in combating unemployment and advocating for the middle class.”

Indeed, protests such as this will most likely have an adverse effect on the average, middle class American. This has led some analysts to predict that the Occupy protests may have some unintended political consequences.

“The Occupy Wall Street,” said Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, “is a tremendous asset and it’s a movement that I think will be very helpful in the 2012 elections, and I think it’s a mistake to interfere with them continuing to annoy middle class Americans.”

He may be right. If Occupy organizers continue with demonstrations like the one they have planned for Black Friday, their already waning public support may disintegrate completely.

That’s where there could be political consequences.

If public opinion turns against the Occupy movement, it may start to gravitate towards the type of 2012 presidential candidate who says of the Occupy movement, “Go get a job right after you take a bath,” as opposed to the candidate who says “The most important thing we can do right now is those of us in leadership letting people know that we understand their struggles and we are on their side…”
