The no good SOB’s you elected and their cronies have pooled their evil power and are wrecking the American Dream with LIES and DECEPTIONS – and most Americans are too busy planning their next tattoo to give a rip.

“Know the Truth and the Knowledge of that truth will set you free” — Jesus Christ
This showed up in my email – wanted to share it…
KEEP PASSING THIS AROUND
THIS IS SURE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!!!!
THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT’S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!!!
WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?
Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did, too.
It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.
If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that’s close to $220,500.
Read that again.
Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny?
We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you and I that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government.
Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back.
If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the Government pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you’d
If you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you’re 95 if you retire at age 65) and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!
If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.
Another thing with me…. I have two deceased husbands who died in their 50′s, (one was 51 and the other one was 59 before one percent of their social security could be drawn.
I worked all my life and am drawing 100% on my own social security).
Their S.S. money will never have one cent drawn from what they paid into S.S. all their lives.
THE FOLKS IN WASHINGTON HAVE PULLED OFF A BIGGER PONZI SCHEME THAN BERNIE MADOFF EVER DID.
Entitlement my foot, I paid cash for my social security insurance! Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity
or handout!! Remember Congressional benefits? — free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days. Now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements? We’re “broke” and we can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, or Homeless. Yet in the last few months we have provided aid to Russia, Haiti, Chile and Turkey. And now Pakistan……former home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!! And they can’t help our own citizens in New York and New Jersey!
They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.
Sad isn’t it.
99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.
I’m in the 1% –
I just did.

Ed Asner and the Teacher’s unions in California are out to raise another generation of 99 percenters. These leftist lunatics are placing a brainwashing video in public schools in effort to make kids hate the rich. The American Dream is being dismantled – One communist action at a time and where the hell are the military folks who took an oath to defend us against domestic enemies?

Neil Cavuto comments on Senator Harry Reid’s decision not to allow Preseident Obama’s proposed budget to be brought to a vote on the Senate floor. Mr. Reid knows what a piece of junk this budget is and he is blocking it to protect his fellow Democrats from having to once again fall on the sword for and inept president who is addicted to massive government spending. This budget projects, in its best case scenario, more than $5 TRILLION in NEW DEBT. You know it is bad when Sen. Reid won’t touch it.
Tuesday, February 14th, 2012 by admin
Both Republicans and Democrats have concerns about this budget plan. President Obama is looking to put a nail in the coffin of the US. Republicans cry foul over massive new spending and some Democrats think he doesn’t spend enough. No amount of smoke and mirrors can hide the fact that there is now fiscal responsibility in DC.

Ringside Politics: Why would Michelle Obama ever be angry? by JEFF CROUERE
CBS reporter Gail King recently interviewed First lady Michelle Obama. Their discussion focused on a recent book by a New York Times writer that labeled Mrs. Obama as “an angry black woman”. While I am sure that being around Rahm Imanuel and Robert Gibbs would create enough conflict to upset a person, Mrs Obama really has no reason to be perpetually mad. After all, she has nearly unlimited access to free world travel in her own private plane, lavish vactions to any place on the globe, and extravagant parties. If she and the president want to go on a date night for dinner in New York city, followed by a show, they can just hop onto Air Force One and go. Of course all of this is very expensive but why should she care, we (the tax payers) are all footing the bill. I really can’t see any reason why Michelle Obama is anything but happy with her life right now.

OCCUPY WALL STREET
THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION
“Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.” –James Madison, Federalist No. 10, 1787
“Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” –John Adams, letter to John Taylor, 1814
The group often credited with sparking Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is Adbusters, the Canadian anti-capitalist magazine founded in 1989 by Kalle Lasn and Bill Schmalz in Vancouver, British Columbia. This July, Lasn and Schmalz issued a call to flood lower Manhattan with 90,000 protesters. Lasn has been accused of anti-Semitism regarding some of the articles in Adbusters. Link
Kalle Lasn previously called for a protest at the upcoming G20 while demanding a one-percent tax on financial transactions. You can read The Daily Call article on this here: “Occupy Wall Street Demands Global UN Tax and Worldwide G20 Protest.”
They don’t even try to hide their affinity to the UN, they’re taking the UN’s call for the tax to the streets and screaming for its implementation. As one of the founders of Occupy Wall Street, Lasn is also in bed with the power elite Soros crowd, which helps fund his magazine, as reported by Lew Rockwell.
Lawrence Morley writes in Adbusters:
“Revolt, if it is to be successful, must come from the mind; a growing unease and dissatisfaction with things as they are. Revolt may be leaderless, but it cannot be idea-less. … It could be said that any society has vested interests in the status quo which could not be unseated by argument. I disagree. For any revolution to succeed, even those interests must be shown to gain, or to lose less by cooperation than they would otherwise.
I, as a Progressive Anarchist, want the complete overthrow of present societies, but not now, not immediately, not violently, but gradually and peacefully as ideas gradually seep through one’s mind. The intention of this revolutionary is to assault your mind and destroy your beliefs.”
Another writer for Adbusters is Michael Hardt. He is an American literary theorist and post-Marxist philosopher perhaps best known for the book Empire, written with Antonio Negri and published in 2000. It has been called the Communist Manifesto of the 21st century.
For those of you who have studied and understand communism, Morley’s words and Hardt’s writings will ring those bells. Those involved in these protests remind me of the 60s and the Viet Nam protests, albeit, they aren’t as organized, nor are they as intellectual as those from the 60s. When asked questions about what they’d replace the free market with, they have no answers, other than the rich make too much money and they should share with those who are less fortunate. Link (Sounds like Obama’s redistribution plans to me).
The protesters include persons of a variety of political orientations, including liberals, political independents, anarchists, socialists, libertarians, and environmentalists. At the protest’s start, the majority of the demonstrators were young; however, as the protest grew the age of the protesters became more diverse, mostly related to the use of social networks.
The dominant theme is that the U.S. is broke and corporations have ruined it. Now they want to kill the corporate “personhood” and then the US will be good again and then there will be justice and prosperity for all. Dream on!
The usual left wing celebs who want to be seen as erudite politically, but only know how to mimic the left-wing lines, are gaining publicity with their involvement with the OWS. On September 19, Roseanne Barr, the first celebrity to endorse the protest, spoke to protesters calling for a combination of capitalism and socialism and a system not based on “bloated talk radio hosts and that goddamn Ayn Rand book.” (Uh, excuse me Roseanne, I think you’ve been eating too much sugar. We already have a combination of what little remains of capitalism and a huge new amount of socialism – a nice euphemism for full-fledged communism) .
Conservative activist and John Birch Society member, H.L. Hunt‘s granddaughter, Leah Hunt-Hendrix, 28, a doctoral student at Princeton writing her dissertation on the history of solidarity, joined OWS protesters, and said. “We should acknowledge our privilege and claim the responsibilities that come with it.” I believe H.L. understood it far better than his granddaughter.
Filmmaker Michael Moore spoke against Wall Street, saying, “They have tried to take our democracy and turn it into a kleptocracy.” (Michael, we were once a representative republic who followed the “rule of law.” Now we are as you state, a “democracy” which is nothing more than “mob rule.”) Susan Sarandon and Kanye West were also there to add their two-cents worth.
Other celebs include folk singer, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Tao Rodríguez-Seeger, Tom Chapin, David Amram, and Guy Davis. Others who are in support of the OWS according to Wikipedia include the usual suspects, Noam Chomsky, George Soros, and Yoko Ono. Mother Jones Magazine reports the growing number of unions joining in the activist protests.
Karl Denninger, one of the original Tea Party founders believes there are many similarities between OWS and the Tea Party demonstrations since many Tea Partiers have joined in the ranks of the OWS. As we’ve seen with Tea Parties across the nation, many are being led by infiltrating change agents and haven’t a clue of where the real battles lie. This is just another example of the deliberately dumbed down electorate reacting like lemmings and being led by socialist propaganda.
Calling for a Constitutional Convention
The OWS not only is demanding the UN one-percent tax, but they are now also demanding a Constitutional Convention for the purpose of changing the entire social structure of the US. Those of you who read my articles know I’ve written several times about the dangers of a Constitutional Convention. See The Constitutional Convention Con and Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing? for the full ramifications of a Constitutional Convention. Leftist commentator, Cenk Uygur has announced the formation of Wolf-PAC to campaign for a Constitutional Convention. His call to action was featured on a website, Amped Status, run by David DeGraw who is one of the original founders of the OWS movement. Here is a video of Cenk’s dangerous Constitutional Convention announcement.
A Constitutional Convention has been the dream of US leftists for a century or more. Constitution.net tells us that as far back as 1932, the Socialist Party’s platform included proposed changes to the Constitution, and many of these changes seem to parallel what Cenk and others want now. From Constitution.net:
The Socialist Party’s 1932 platform included many proposed changes to the Constitution. One group concerned voting and elections, including popular election of the President and the ability to hold national referenda. Judicial review would be specifically barred. Workers’ rights would be protected and child labor barred; nationalization of industry would also be permitted and promoted. Finally, they advocated an easing of the requirements for ratification of constitutional amendments.
As I’ve stated many times before, a Constitutional Convention is fraught with risks and could easily spin out of control. It would very likely be hijacked by the elitists and then we’d end up with an anti-freedom agenda and a new constitution that would totally destroy the liberties our 1787 Constitution grants us. People…this means the entire Bill of Rights could disappear! Can you just imagine who we’d end up with on a Committee of Detail today, or the delegates from each state? It is the very people we oppose and that includes the phony right-wing like McCain, McConnell, and Boehner, and Snowe and Collins, not to mention Pelosi and Reid, Feinstein, Boxer and Schumer! God help us!
What few people understand is the fact that the right wing is pushing a Constitutional Convention as well and has been for a long time. Their tactics are subtle and disarming with the conservative sounding Balanced Budget Amendment that could easily lead to a Constitutional Convention. There has also been a desire of the leftists to eliminate the Electoral College. In doing so, the smaller states would not have a voice in elections and we’d end up having the president elected by the most leftist populated states. In the 2012 election, Obama would remain president. Link
Today the Vatican called for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises. The document from the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department should please the OWS demonstrators and other movements around the world who have used the economic downturn to stage socialistic or progressive protests to push the US and world further down the road to serfdom.
I believe Occupy Wall Street is another Trojan Horse designed to further the aims of the elitists pushing a One World Order. The Con-Con promoters have been at this for decades and it is now coming to the fore again after we fought it off in the 80s. The Tea Party movement and the Occupy Wall Street movement are both expressions of people’s anger and rage over what our elitist politicians in both parties are doing to the American people via the right/left Hegelian Dialectic which provides the elite a way of controlling the masses.
As others have illustrated in numerous articles, there is considerable evidence that Occupy Wall Street is funded by these powerful elements. The great central banking families (and their political, military, religious and financial colleagues and enablers) have been plotting world government for more than a century and they see the US Constitution as an impediment. Leftism suits their purpose.
We need to remove the Fed and central banking and return the country to a competitive monetary system that goes back to gold and silver. We do not need a Constitutional Convention to do this. We do need political and economic pressure on all of our state and local representatives and we need to warn them of the dangers of a Con-Con. Please use my previous articles to do same.
We have two gigantic dangers to the citizens of America. One is a Constitutional Convention which would not only destroy the Constitution we have now, but would give us a totally different country and eliminate our God given unalienable rights. The other is the massive all encompassing UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development that is already in full bloom across America and in nearly every city and town.
These are the two most important subjects we need to tackle today. If there are any good Tea Parties and freedom loving groups who are not infiltrated with change agents and neutralizing RINOs, please join the rest of us freedom-loving patriotic Americans in fighting these forces of evil. As many of my close and dear friends fighting this behemoth say, FIRST WE MUST PRAY and repent for allowing God to be kicked out of America, as well as pleading for His Mercy on our nation. And then, we all need to get to work!

TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY
“If the public are bound to yield obedience to laws to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them.” –Candidus Pen name of Samuel Adams during the era of the Sons of Liberty Source: in the Boston Gazette, 1772
Bill Haslam is the Republican Governor of Tennessee. Haslam was elected to office in 2010. He previously served as Mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee, from 2003 until his resignation in 2011. While he has an “R” behind his name, Haslam is no conservative. This is the story of how he intends to raise taxes on all Americans. The title of this article is “TEA,” for Taxed Enough Already, the same acronym used by the Tea Parties.
First let’s look at this phony right winger who calls himself a Christian Conservative. Haslam was born in Knoxville in 1958 and is the son of Jim Haslam, the founder of Pilot Corporation, the parent company of the convenience store and travel center chain, Pilot Flying J. He ran for Mayor of Knoxville partly because of a conversation he had with fellow RINO Bob Corker who was then mayor of Chattanooga, TN. Corker is now the junior RINO senator of Tennessee and he along with our Senior RINO Senator, Lamar Alexander and our Governor, Bill Haslam, is a big proponent of UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development.
In Haslam’s first mayoral race, he defeated Democrat Knox County Commissioner Madeline Rogero by a 52% to 46% margin. In 2006 Haslam appointed Rogero to Director of Community Development in Knoxville supposedly to keep her from running against him in the 2006 race. The prevailing strong rumor is that Rogero convinced Haslam to apply for a government grant (600 American cities have done so) that would award from $4 to $6 million tax dollars to the city to implement Smart Growth (SG) which is a major component of UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. To put it succinctly, Smart Growth is centralization of population within the city limits using only bicycle paths, public transportation, stack-em and pack-em high-rise living, and turning the rest of the formerly occupied rural and suburban areas back to pre-Columbian pristine days. (See Wildlands Project) We are now fighting the implementation of SG in Knoxville and four other surrounding counties under a regional plan called PlanET or Five Counties/One Vision and I and my cohorts are spending a great deal of time educating people about how we will lose our property rights and much more because of SG. Thank you Bill Haslam.
We have attended several of the PlanET forums where the proponents of Smart Growth allegedly solicit community input. However, at each forum we have seen, the facilitators have used the Delphi Technique to achieve the consensus for the desired input. Present at all three of these meetings were architects from Wallace Roberts & Todd, a Florida firm, who travel around the country implementing Smart Growth, probably with the guarantee of getting the contract to build the stack-em and pack-em high-rises in the city.
I was told by one of the top architects that they had just “finished up” Austin, Texas and somewhere in North Carolina. But listen to this statement by David Rouse, of Wallace Roberts & Todd, from a Chattanooga newspaper article in which he stated that he is “committed to an open process, and that property rights won’t be impacted without the public’s consent.” Where is the outrage over this one sentence? Property Rights NEED TO BE PROTECTED! not trampled whether the public consents or not, the constitution says so!
A local Tea Party had been infiltrated with RNC folks who supported Haslam over the more conservative Lt. Governor, Ron Ramsey. They didn’t like the fact that activists within the Tea Party had been at the polls in 2010 and had backed Ramsey rather than Haslam. Those same activists had also helped elect four out of five conservative candidates by their presence at early voting. Sadly, because of the infiltration and neutralization of the local Tea Party, who decided they would become a government 501(c)4 and neither oppose nor endorse candidates, the Tea Party did not have a presence at the early voting polls in the recent city mayoral race. If they had, we may have elected Republican Commissioner Ivan Harmon over extreme leftist and Sustainable Development proponent Democrat Madeline Rogero. Fighting SG and Agenda 21 in Knoxville has now become much more difficult and the proponents of this draconian UN Agenda 21 have become empowered.
Haslam was formerly a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, serve as co-chairs of the coalition, and like the majority of Mayors in the Coalition, they are Democrats. It is an ardently anti-gun organization and the ties this group has to ardent anti-gunners is quite apparent. The group even has ties to the California Microstamping law. Haslam resigned in early 2009 and paid the National Rifle Association $1000.00 for a lifetime membership so he could portray himself to the Tennessee electorate as a pro-Second Amendment Governor. Most opponents of Haslam believe his family money bought the Governorship for him.
One of Haslam’s first acts as governor was to roll back disclosure requirements, so it’s unknown how much he earned from selling his stock in EZ Corp, a Texas-based company that owned two pawnshops in Knoxville. Haslam rolled back disclosure requirements so that he and other officials had to list sources of income but not corresponding dollar figures. That decision has brought criticism from party leaders on both sides of the aisle, who say the result is less transparency for state government. Gov. Bill Haslam’s stake in a multimillion-dollar loan guarantee was sold to a prominent Knoxville developer three days after a report by The Tennessean uncovered the original transaction.
Looks like Bill Haslam’s family, along with a lot of the Tennessee Republican establishment are supporting Mitt Romney. Due to the political ramifications, it is doubtful they would do this without the Governor’s approval which leads one to believe that Governor Haslam is also supporting Mitt Romney. Here are the details regarding the support and the other corporations involved including the Governor’s brother, Jim Haslam. Willard Mitt Romney is one of the worse RINO candidates, running a close second as fellow communist behind Third Wave Fabian Socialist and communist Newt Gingrich. Not much of the Obama doctrine would change with either of these two.
The State of Tennessee joined the Federal TSA in “Security Operations” on Tennessee Interstates and bus stations. According to the Tennessee Report, “The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security on Tuesday partnered with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and several other federal and state agencies for a safety enforcement and awareness operation on Tennessee’s interstates and two metropolitan-area bus stations. The agencies conducted a Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) operation at scale complexes where trucks and large vehicles are weighed. The VIPR operation was also conducted at two regional bus terminals in Nashville and Knoxville. Why would a conservative Christian Governor allow the TN Department of Safety and Homeland Security to bring the TSA into TN and for us to be the “inaugural” state? Obviously along with our constitution shredding federal government, Haslam sees no problem with the state of Tennessee shredding the 4th Amendment to the Bill of Rights.
Now to get to the very gist of the reason for this article. What has so infuriated me about this phony Republican governor is the blatant attack on Tennessee’s citizens for more taxation, not to mention the fact that he’s wanting all of America to pay new taxes.
The subject of this article is straight out of the playbooks of what the Tea Parties allegedly are fighting. Unfortunately, my local Tea Party was long ago infiltrated by change agents for the Republican (RINO) party and neutralized to the point of being nothing more than a garden club. As I wrote in Part 4 of my article on the Tea Parties, I had brought up the subject of our governor pushing for an internet sales tax at this local Tea Party and absolutely nothing was done. In fact, I wasn’t given the opportunity to speak to this issue at the local Tea Party for even the 10 minutes I was told I had.
Bill Haslam stated at the beginning of his term that he was going to contact all the other governors and push the federal Congress to pass a bill that would tax all internet sales even when the company purchased from via internet does not have a presence in your state. Internet retailers cannot be compelled to collect sales taxes if they have no physical presence in a state under a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court decision. Haslam wants to change this and in effect tax all Americans on every state’s sales tax when we purchase goods from a company in another state and there is no presence of that company in our state.
Muddying the waters is the fact that our previous governor had made an agreement with Amazon to bring three shipping hubs to Tennessee, bringing with it approximately 1200 jobs. However, Governor Bredesen did not wish to tax the citizens of Tennessee when Amazon came here, so he had an agreement with Amazon that they could come to Tennessee without having purchases by citizens within the state taxed at our 9.25% rate. Immediately Haslam set out to change this when he became governor and now in two years all citizens of Tennessee will pay 9.25% sales tax when they purchase anything from Amazon. All for a lousy 1200 jobs! So, Haslam has cost us all more in taxes and now he even wants to tax the rest of the American citizens by pushing a NATIONAL INTERNET SALES TAX.
I don’t know how many of you remember what it was like before the internet, but 15 years ago or so tons of catalogues were always coming in the mail. When customers ordered from any of those catalogues where the companies did not have a presence in their state, they did not charge any sales tax. It has always been that way. Yet, here we are with another Republican governor pushing more taxes on the people of Tennessee in an economy that is totally lackluster and stagnant. And not only on Tennessee, but on the entire citizenry of the United States. Talk about killing the economy even more!
To top it all off, Tennessee is headed by a Republican Governor and represented in the U.S. Senate by two Republicans who are pushing this tax along with our governor. Both Senators, Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker are with Governor Haslam on instituting yet another new tax on America’s overburdened citizens via the NATIONAL INTERNET SALES TAX. Of course both of our Senators are moderate RINOs at best, with the senior Senator Alexander being the worst socialist of the two. Is it any wonder we are considered the most corrupt state in the Union?
Where are the Tea Parties? It is Taxed Enough Already they stand for, isn’t it? Why has there been no uproar about this across the state of Tennessee and throughout the country? Why has nothing been done to start a campaign against this new tax (as if we don’t have enough of them already). And yes, I know it’s part of the UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development/Smart Growth plan to tax us all into the poor house and rid the nation of the declining middle class, but come on people….where is the fight? Are you paying attention to what your Governor is doing?
How many times have I said, “A false friend is more dangerous than an open enemy?” And how many times have I written about the phony right wing and all the right wing UN-NGO (United Nations Non Governmental Organizations) groups being in bed with the left? We need numbers of people to write, call, send letters to your newspaper editors and speak about this at your group’s meetings. I beg of you to cry out against this tyranny!
We must be on our knees repenting for allowing our beloved nation to throw God out of the country. We must be on our knees repenting for allowing our country to murder 56 million babies in the wombs of their mothers. Are you pleading for mercy from the Lord God Almighty? Are you working to save our Republic? Are you going to Tea Parties who are nothing more than garden clubs, or are you actively trying to stop the onslaught of communism in our country by attending active groups?
I beg of you to get active and to take information to your pastors, your friends, your neighbors and to speak out because time is short and the satanic moneyed communists never sleep. It took strong men and women, submitting to God’s Word and seeking His blessings, to build and defend America, home of the FREE and the BRAVE. It will take nothing less to keep it.

SUSAN SARANDON: DUMB WOMAN TALKING
By Jeff Crouere
October 19, 2011…The hyperbole from the left is getting more extreme with each passing day. Several weeks ago actor Morgan Freeman claimed the Tea Party movement was “racist.” Last Friday, actor Sean Penn called the Tea Party the group that wanted to “get the N-word out of the White House” and “lynch” the President. These foolish actors have not seen or must not understand the latest polls which show African American Herman Cain as the Tea Party’s favorite candidate.
While their remarks were both offensive and inaccurate, they were mild compared to what aging actress Susan Sarandon said last weekend at the Hamptons Film Festival. In discussing her Academy Award winning role in the film “Dead Man Walking,” Sarandon said that she sent a copy of the book that inspired the movie to the Pope. However, she noted that the book was sent to “the last one, not this Nazi we have now.” To make matters worse, Sarandon repeated the offensive reference at another panel discussion.
This horrible remark was not only an insult to the leader of the Catholic Church, but also to the 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide. Sadly, among the left in this country, insulting conservatives and Catholics has become routine.
A great number of outspoken liberals can be found in the film industry, where good looking, but dim witted, entertainers earn a living. For some reason, these actors and actresses believe that the public cares about their political opinions. Instead, most people want them to “shut up” and perform. When they open their mouth, it is usually leftist drivel that exposes their ignorance and bias.
Sarandon is a hard core liberal who supports radical movements. It was no surprise to see her at the “Occupy Wall Street” rally giving aid and comfort to the protesters. Like so many other Hollywood extremists, she wouldn’t be caught dead at a Tea Party rally. These liberal stars prefer a group that bashes capitalism, yells “F… the USA” and defecates on police cars to a bunch of people waving the American Flag and singing patriotic hymns.
It is more than disquieting that Sarandon was not confronted about labeling the Pope a Nazi by anyone at the Hamptons Film Festival. Instead she was praised for her efforts to support UNICEF and the Wall Street protesters. This shows that there is plenty of anti-Catholic bias in the Hollywood community.
While festival attendees were not moved by Sarandon’s vicious attack against the Pope, her comments were condemned by William Donohue of the Catholic League of America. He noted that the Pope “was conscripted at the age of 14 into the Hitler Youth, along with every other young German boy.” However, the future Pope refused to go to meetings and “unlike most of the others, he deserted at the first opportunity.”
Clearly, the Pope represents the polar opposite of Nazism. In fact, film critic Michael Medved said Sarandon’s comments were especially egregious because of the Pope’s “moving and eloquent efforts to come to terms with the horrors of the Holocaust.” The Anti-Defamation League called on Sarandon to apologize to the Catholic community. Not surprisingly, calls to her agent were not returned.
It is time that these vicious attacks from the Hollywood left were no longer tolerated. Obviously, no one in Hollywood is going to penalize Susan Sarandon, but the American public should. Catholics and all Americans who are sick and tired of the hatred and ignorance spewed by the liberals in Hollywood should boycott Sarandon’s movies and force her to suffer some consequences for insulting a beloved church figure, who Catholics recognize as the successor to Saint Peter, the Apostle.
A boycott will send a message to the film studios that Sarandon and her fellow liberal stars are becoming a liability and maybe give more conservatives in Hollywood the courage to fight back against this type of intolerance.
These stars get paid big money to act, not comment on religion or politics. As we can see from Susan Sarandon and her liberal friends, when the stars stray from their make believe world of Hollywood into the real world, it is not a pretty site to behold. It’s time for Sarandon and company to either “shut up” or go away.

Ringside Politics: Herman Cain, showing Africa-Americans a better way by JEFF CROUERE
The liberal racist attack machine is in full operation using the stupid comments by celebrities like Morgan Freeman and Janeane Garofalo. Garafalo’s comment accusing the GOP’s support of Herman Cain as a cover for their real racist views is beyond idiocy. Herman Cain is a respected businessman and veteren. He is now truinh to show the African-American citizens the folly of blindly following the Democratic party. High unemployment, failing schools, bloated welfare rolls and lowered values are all the result of liberal politics. Mr. Cain is showing a better way.

Ringside Politics: Who knew so many actors were idiots? by JEFF CROUERE
Well, you can add actor Morgan Freeman to the list of Hollywood idiots. In his infinite wisdom, Mr. Freeman has decided that anyone who disagrees with President Obama must be a racist. Like so many others, Morgan Freeman has chosen the low road of bigotry and slander; calling anyone who is conservative or in the tea party haters of blacks. Still, Herman Cain, a successful black businessman, recently won the Florida GOP straw poll not because he was black but because he stands for the same conservative principals being put forward by the tea party.

Ringside Politics: Here we go again, another Democrat attack on the Tea Party by JEFF CROUERE
Is must be difficult when you have no real idea how to make things work and your only weapon is to slander good American citizens. Democrat Andre Carson is again following the politics of slander playbook embraced by the liberals. He is now claiming the the tea party members of congress want to go back to lynchings. How dispicable! This is not only bad for our political process, it also exposes the racist views of this liberal democrat. He should be ashamed.

THE TEA PARTIES
“It is a known fact that the policies of the government today, whether Republican or Democrat are closer to the 1932 platform of the Communist Party than they are to either of their own party platforms in that critical year.”
The frustration level from attending tea party meetings is so high that I simply have to walk out the door and go home. If I imbibed, I’d have to have a glass of wine to calm my emotions. It is with grief and melancholy that I am writing this article. Nevertheless it is with the urging of several Tea Parties across our nation who want others to know what is happening and to clean their own Parties of the change agent infiltrators. So with deep humility, here is the final product.
At the tea party I have attended the most, there are four very knowledgeable people who know there are major problems we should be focusing on at every meeting. Then there are a number who have just awakened to the problems and are not at all educated on the situation we face, but know they love their country and want to do anything they can to save her. The balance of these people are infiltrators and change agents that continually preach the RNC propaganda that has gotten us where we are today. “Compromise” is what they always propose and in my lexicon that’s a dirty word.
The Origins of Today’s Tea Party
The Tea Party movement got its start when CNBC’s Rick Santelli went on a rant against government efforts to protect Americans from home foreclosures and called for “tea parties” as a means to protest against government intervention in the economy. Despite Tea Party folks making it clear in the beginning they were not part of the RNC, it has not stopped the infiltration by the phony rightwing Republicans.
The first nationwide tea parties in February of 2009 were co-sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform, whose president, Grover Norquist is a charter member of the secretive Council for National Policy (CNP). Norquist married a Muslim woman in 2005 and has since converted. Link Allegedly his donations to Muslim charities also fund Al Qaeda. The association of Norquist and Islamists became known in 1998, when he became the founding chairman of an organization called the Islamic Free Market Institute, better known as the Islamic Institute. Norquist is also a lobbyist for Bill Gates’ Microsoft.
The American Spectator was the other sponsor and their then-managing editor organized the rally near the White House, according to promotional materials and participants. The Spectator was originally funded by Richard Mellon Scaife with $25,000 (Chase Mellon Bank – Rockefeller) and Scaife funds both sides of the aisle. He is also a strong Planned Parenthood pro-abort who recently had a full page article in the WSJ stating why we should support Planned Parenthood with our tax dollars. Emmett Tyrrell, the “Alternative’s” founder (later to be the American Spectator) cultivated the rightwing neo-cons to write for the magazine, including Irving Kristol a member of the Young People’s Socialist League in the 1930s, and whose son Bill Kristol also wrote for the Spectator. Nelson Rockefeller directly gave Irving Kristol $100,000 through his Commission on Critical Choices for just 15 short essays. Irving’s son, William Kristol did make it big time of course and is a Fox News contributor and commentator. He is also a member of the Bilderberger group. William Kristol is one of the top three strategists of the GOP. He launched a weekly magazine called the Standard and is backed financially by CFR Rupert Murdock. Kristol is assembling the next generation of socialists on behalf of the NWO. The Kristol’s have plotted for several decades under the disarming word, “neoconservative.”
Richard Mellon Scaife continually funded The Spectator as did the widow of the pharmaceutical magnate Eli Lilly. She sent $3,000 and offered to give much more if the magazine could be set up as a charitable foundation, which would make her contributions tax-deductible. This was done and supplied Tyrrell with enough money to live a stylish life.
Other influential writers and board members of the Spectator included, Jeanne J. Kirkpatrick (Former Director of CFR; Ambassador to UN; Trilateral Commission; Co-Director, Empower America; Board Member, American Spectator); Adrian Karatnycky, President (CFR, Publisher Freedom Review Publisher; Conservative author, American Spectator).
Richard “Dick” Armey and FreedomWorks
Former House Republican Leader Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity, which is funded by the Koch family’s oil wealth, also have worked behind the scenes to build the Tea Party movement. Dick Armey is a charter member of the CNP. He is staunchly pro-amnesty, which has cost him some of the tea party allegiance.
In 2003, Armey became co-chairman of Citizens for a Sound Economy, which in 2004 merged with Empower America to become FreedomWorks. In 2004, Citizens for a Sound Economy split into two new organizations, with Citizens for a Sound Economy being renamed as FreedomWorks, and Citizens for a Sound Economy Foundation becoming Americans for Prosperity.
In 2008 Freedomworks Foundation Paid Dick Armey $550,000 even before the Tea Parties Got going in 2009! So the entire program was planned. Looks to me like some pre-planning of tea party propaganda to infuse the angry grassroots Americans, doesn’t it? Here is FreedomWorks 990 for 2008, see page 7.
Empower America was founded in 1993 by high stakes gambler and former Drug Czar and Education Secretary William Bennett, who was involved with the US-Soviet education exchanges and treaties and implementing the Soviet quota system; former Secretary of HUD Jack Kemp (charter CNP member); former UN Ambassador Jeanne J. Kirkpatrick; and former Representative Vin Weber, CNP member and co-director of the globalist Aspen Institute’s Domestic Strategy Group. Link Charlotte Iserbyt exposed Bill Bennett for his purposeful destruction of education since she worked under T. H. Bell in Reagan’s education department. Bennett continued all of Bell’s socialist/communist policies, especially OBE and the Skinner method. Regarding Bennett’s role in U.S./Soviet education agreements, he wasn’t overtly involved, but he, when asked by Malcolm Lawrence about the agreements, responded “I’m not in that loop.”Link
Empower America was largely filled with Council for National Policy members, CFR members, Trilateralist members, as well as Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church members such as Josette Shiner Sheeran, now Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Programme.
David Koch and Americans for Prosperity
Americans for Prosperity has worked closely with the Tea Party since the movement’s inception. In the weeks before the first Tax Day protests, in April, 2009, Americans for Prosperity hosted a Web site offering supporters “Tea Party Talking Points.” Peggy Venable, State Director for AFP explained that the role of Americans for Prosperity was to help “educate” Tea Party activists on policy details, and to give them “next-step training” after their rallies, so that their political energy could be channeled “more effectively.” And she noted that Americans for Prosperity had provided Tea Party activists with lists of elected officials to target. She said of the Koch’s, “They’re certainly our people. David’s the chairman of our board. I’ve certainly met with them, and I’m very appreciative of what they do.” A Republican campaign consultant who has done research on behalf of Charles and David Koch said of the Tea Party, “The Koch brothers gave the money that founded it.
Tim Phillips is president of AFP for the Koch’s. Phillips was a political veteran who had worked with Council for National Policy member Ralph Reed, the so-called evangelical leader and Republican activist, co-founding Century Strategies, a campaign-consulting company that became notorious for its ties to the disgraced lobbyist and fellow CNP member Jack Abramoff. Century Strategies had many political clients, including Dick Armey. Phillips also has a history of anti-Semitic smear campaigns and lobbying work on behalf of a forced-abortion sweatshop owner.
David Koch and his brother, Charles own Koch Industries, the 2nd largest privately owned company in the country after Cargill. David and Charles are lifelong libertarians and David ran as vice president to Ed Clark on the Libertarian party in the 1980 election funding 2 million of his own dollars into the campaign. Ed Clark told The Nation that libertarians were getting ready to stage “a very big tea party,” because people were “sick to death” of taxes. The Libertarian Party platform called for the abolition of the F.B.I. and the C.I.A., as well as of federal regulatory agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Energy. The Party wanted to end Social Security, minimum-wage laws, gun control, and all personal and corporate income taxes; it proposed the legalization of prostitution, recreational drugs, and suicide. William F. Buckley, Jr., CFR and Yale Skull and Bonesman alleged conservative, called the movement “Anarcho-Totalitarianism.”
In 1977, the Koch’s provided the funds to launch the nation’s first libertarian think tank, the Cato Institute. According to the Center for Public Integrity, between 1986 and 1993 the Koch family gave eleven million dollars to the institute. They’ve also heavily funded Heritage Foundation, which is connected to Rockefeller, just as are the Koch brothers. Heritage has fascist, communist, United Nations, and Sun Myung Moon connections. See part 2 of my article, Saving the Republic?.
David Koch is on the board of Trustees of Rockefeller University. He is also on the board of the globalist new age Aspen Institute formerly headed by new age environmentalist Maurice Strong which I wrote about in More Republican Deception. He is also on the board of Earthwatch Institute, an environmental, sustainability, Agenda 21 group. See this map of Koch’s many connections. David Koch also supports gay marriage and stem-cell research
Council for National Policy
The Council for National Policy was started allegedly to counter the workings of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), yet there were five CFR members on the early membership rosters of the CNP. The CNP was started in 1981 by Nelson Bunker Hunt, Pat Robertson, Tim LaHaye, (who accepted millions from Sun Myung Moon who claims he came to finish what Jesus started) and T. Cullen Davis who helped fund the CNP to get it off the ground. T. Cullen Davis was tried for murder not once, but twice. A book written about the trials is still available entitled, “Blood Will Tell: The Murder Trials of T. Cullen Davis” by Gary Cartwright. For a short synopsis click here.
Several of the CNP’s original members, such as Nelson Bunker Hunt, contributed large sums of their money to the JBS, which initially was funding provided from people such as Nelson Rockefeller — another example of how the elite control all sides and administer the opposition to these sides they create. Link The JBS however is instrumental in continuing the fight against a constitutional convention and they completely understand the dangers. Their research and exposure of who is behind the latest con-con push seems impeccable to me.
Many of CNP’s highest-ranking members also belong to the Masonic Knights of Malta and are associated with Fabian socialism and the eugenics movement, not to mention cultists like Sun Myung Moon and Scientology as well as the heretical and cultic Dominionist/Reconstructionist movement. Oil baron and CNP member Nelson Bunker Hunt was a former member of the racist pro-eugenics group called the International Association for the Advancement of Ethnology and Eugenics. The group was heavily involved in the promotion of eugenics and segregation. I know two members who left the CNP stating it was in bed with the left from its inception. One of these former members writes for News With Views.
Fiddling While Rome Burns
The very first tea party meeting I attended was a few years ago in another county. I got up and left when the speaker who was supposed to be guiding the audience to educational forums told them to go to Third Wave futurist Newt Gingrich’s and Heritage Foundation sites.
About two months ago I got a call from a young man who attends the local tea party and wanted me to come and critique what they were doing. This first meeting had our state senator speak to us about the legislation that passed and failed to pass in Tennessee. I thought it was a pretty decent meeting although I ended up challenged regarding charter schools and tort reform. Sadly many have bought into the rightwing propaganda regarding both.
The second meeting had about half the people as the first meeting and someone from the audience read a one page article on California and Texas statistics resulting after tort reform. There was another gentleman that fully understood the problems with this reform which are basically socialistic, leads to higher negligence, increases the deficit and should be fought by every tea party. One officer of this group was particularly staunch on his support of tort reform, but then his father is a physician. Sadly under Obama care we will have no recourse for poor or deadly healthcare.
Also at this meeting were two women running for a state senate seat that had been vacated. Neither have the background nor experience. One is a school teacher who is convinced that charter schools are wonderful, as does Obama, and the other woman is the sister of our district’s alleged conservative representative in congress. This particular congressman took over the seat when his father died, and is training his son to take it over when he retires. This congressman also voted for the UN Goals 2000 and NAFTA. When I spoke up that charter schools would be run by corporations with “school to work,” as well as eliminating the school board and resulting in taxation without representation, I was shouted down by more than one of the tea party officers neither of whom knows anything about what’s really behind charter schools. As well, I spent days sending articles by Charlotte Iserbyt and Jed Brown, two of the most knowledgeable and brilliant people who have exposed what has been done to American education and this young man writes me back and says, “I find this all very confusing drivel.”
What is difficult to understand in this article from Jed Brown? “Finally, the entire plan to establish this quasi-privatized education system has a brilliantly conceived marketing plan. Those pushing the New World Order agenda have implored the conservative citizens to swallow school-choice plans in the name of the founding fathers, who would roll over in their graves. The words of John Chubb and Terry Moe, of The Brookings Institute and Stanford University respectively, would have gotten them an invite to a tar and feather party – “Our guiding principle in the design of a choice system is this: public authority must be put to use in creating a system that is almost entirely beyond the reach of public authority.” (Politics, Markets and America’s Schools, 1990)”
I hadn’t given up yet however, and when an article came out in a local paper about our newly elected RINO Governor Bill Haslam pushing for a national internet sales tax, I called up the young man that wanted me to critique the tea party and told him about it and sent him the article. Isn’t this right up the tea party’s alley? It’s more taxation! Haslam had stated he was going to contact the other 49 governors and have them push the congress to pass legislation taxing any and all out-of-state internet sales.
So he said since he was in charge that evening, we’d discuss it. Immediately I made 20 copies of the article and called two former congressional candidates to see if they’d attend. There were a total of five of us there that fully understand the agenda of both the right and the left and that it’s the same, just couched in different verbiage.
First we listened to the treasurer tell us that way too much money goes to social security, Medicare, and defense. Excuse me but all of us have paid into social security and Medicare and it is NOT an entitlement. We have paid for it! As for the military, it is the one constitutionally legal funding that should be at the top of our budget to protect American citizens.
Next we listened to another officer tell us that he visited a MoveOn.Org meeting and the people were quite nice, just deceived and it was under the guise of “knowing our enemy.” Needless to say I think all of us that care one iota about our country understand who George Soros is and what he stands for and it’s certainly not freedom. I sat there thinking, “Why are we visiting George Soros’ groups, why aren’t we picking our battles and fighting them?”
Next we heard from a rather bedraggled and bare footed lady who was to speak to us about Agenda 21, sustainability, and the latest land grabs by our federal and state governments. Granted, some people in the audience may not have fully understood this diabolical UN plan, but papers could have been handed out that also included a website for more information. Instead this woman read for over 15 minutes from papers she had with her and we didn’t discuss it afterward.
When an audience member asked when we were to discuss our governor’s new push for internet sales taxes, the young man I had called about this said, “There’s some misinformation regarding this subject matter,” and he dismissed it. We all looked at each other.
I asked him later why he had done that and he told me that he’d called our state senator and was told that Tennessee already collects internet sales tax. Obviously the young man did not understand what our senator told him. If you purchase something on the internet that is made in your state or whose company has a store or division in your state, you pay your state’s sales tax because they reside IN YOUR STATE. However, if you purchase something on the internet or via a catalogue phone order from another state and that store does NOT have a facility in your state, you DO NOT pay sales tax. Our RINO governor wants to rectify this by making us pay each state’s tax whether they have a company in our state or not. Typical tax and spend!
The five of us walked out of the meeting shaking our heads. All of us agreed that it was a total waste of time and that it’s too late to educate…we must be on top of the issues. The meeting prior to this should have concerned the debt ceiling shenanigans and we should have had a plan of attack on the politicians. We also should have connected with the other tea parties around the country with a plan to flood D.C. with complaints. At this meeting, we should have had a discussion of our governor’s new tax plan and getting this information to the rest of the tea parties in the state and then to the tea parties throughout the country. We didn’t even discuss it because the young man didn’t understand the issue.
Lastly, on the website of this local tea party is the link to American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) which is a spin-off of the Heritage Foundation. ALEC is a shadowy group and member of the secretive Council for National Policy founded by former grand poobah of the CNP, Paul Weyrich. (Please again see part 2 of Saving the Republic?) Originally it was funded to the tune of 7 million dollars by Richard Mellon Scaife who funds both sides of the aisle. ALEC is a group that brings together state legislators and representatives of corporations to draft model bills that can then be introduced at the state level of government. An archive of ALEC documents was recently leaked. Reporter John Nichols says, ” “All of those pieces of legislation and those resolutions [in the documents] really err toward a goal, and that goal is the advancement of an agenda that seems to be dictated at almost every turn by multinational corporations.” This map shows their success of getting their legislative agenda in terms of bills passed on a state by state basis. Any legislator who jumps on their bandwagon is just a lamb to the slaughter, in my opinion.
Legislators in ALEC pay a minimal fee to join the group, while corporations pay much more — up to $25,000, Nichols says. The corporations make up the huge majority of members. One of their top corporations is Koch Industries. Along with the corporations, another major funder is The Church of Scientology.
ALEC’s main goal is privatization which has been done extensively to prisons, thus making corporations quite wealthy on prison labor and keeping pot sellers and smokers in for longer periods of time. ALEC is also at the head of the pack calling for a constitutional convention which would totally destroy the nation. Link Link
On the tea party’s website is of course a link to David Koch’s Americans for Prosperity. Also linked is the horrible Mt. Vernon Pledge, see part 1 of Saving the Republic for those involved, including Islamist Grover Norquist. Another group listed is Contract for America which advertises for Koch’s Americans for Prosperity, Grover Norquist’s ATR, American Solutions which is communist Newt Gingrich, and the worst of the lot, if there is such a thing, is the NATIONAL TAXPAYERS UNION, founded by James Dale Davidson who has pushed a constitutional convention since the late 70s and who we fought tooth and nail in the early 80s to stop the destruction of our constitution. Davidson gives $100,000 a year towards the efforts to call a constitutional convention, which our founder James Madison warned against only a year after the original convention. Davidson also sits on the board of Newsmax with several CFR members. On the Blog site, Heritage Foundry is listed as well as the anti-Semitic Republic Broadcasting Network.
My God in heaven, did anyone do any research before linking to these groups? They need to know that “a false friend is more dangerous than an open enemy.”
If this doesn’t frustrate all of us that are weeping over our losses, I don’t know what will. I recently read an article by fellow writer and retired SEAL, Jim O’Neill entitled, It’s Time to Reboot America. Give it a gander because I believe Jim has once again hit the nail on the head. As Claire Wolfe said, “We’re at that awkward stage where it’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.”
I also do not want my good readers to think that all tea parties are fully infested with change agents, infiltrators, or power hungry know-nothing leaders as so many in our part of Tennessee seem to be. One tea party leader who communicates with me is from Tea-MAC in Elkhart County, Indiana, and here’s what he says,
“Yeah, we know about the infiltrators and have been on guard. We are in the crosshairs of the enemies of the nation because of our effectiveness. You are right and it is very, very, worrisome and we are actually developing a very effective way of discovery and elimination in our groups. We’ve been dialing our little fingers off and e-mailing our little computers dry to Boehner, Cantor, McCarty and our own reps. Most Hoosier tea parties I know are urging their members to do so. And the opposition knows it and that’s why they’ve decided to infiltrate. And they are using the Saul Alinsky method against us. We don’t care, it’s full bore ahead.”
George Miller keeps me informed as well from the Ventura County, California Tea Party. They have an excellent website and try to keep people informed with up-to-date information on what our congress criminals are up to and how to fight it.
There are another half dozen large Tea Parties that encouraged me to write this article in the hope that other groups would understand that the enemy comes in both left and right propaganda as false friends of freedom.
May the Lord open the eyes of those who love America and give them discernment for without it I’m afraid we’re lost. Pray without ceasing fellow patriots, for our Heavenly Father is our only hope. May He have mercy on our nation. “And having done all to Stand!”
