Greetings and Salutations,
Some food for thought:
*“Nationally, Obama received a whopping 69 percent of the Hispanic vote -- an even higher percentage than in 2008 -- and, with it, the swing states of Florida, Colorado, and Nevada.
Folks, being nice in war and politics doesn't cut it. It's time the National Tea Party get some real gonads and start exerting some real pressure on Obama and his cult of Socialists. If this Tea Party is to be anything substantively like its' namesake it is time to start using the escalation of force used by the party of our Founding Fathers. A good beginning would be a major demonstration at Obama's inauguration. Follow that up with a group walk-out during his State of the Union…Continue
I've just read a book by David M. Walker, former comptroller general and CEO of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (the nation's top auditor), entiled "Come Back America: Turning the Country Around and Restoring Fiscal Responsibility". If you want an explanation of how we got where we are (in debt to our eyebrows) and suggestions how to begin to climb out of this pit and avoid insolvency, read this book. Walker lays out the problems…Continue
is now upon us. What are our strategies ? What can we do to grow our membership and to alert the sleeping citizenry to the ever increasing POWER over us by the Obama admin and his minions?
As so many of you know, I am for educating the uneducated. Not with politics...the uninformed are not aroused with anything that does not PERSONALLY effect them. That is one of the reasons that I wrote my book THE MIRACLE OF SELF POWER. Even the semi-conscious is interested in them 'selves'! …Continue
Senior officials with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) knew the agency was targeting Tea Party groups as early as 2011, according to a report.
The Associated Press reported Saturday that an upcoming report from a federal watchdog will find that top officials were aware of the targeting two years ago.
The report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is slated to be released next week — the AP obtained a draft copy of the report.
According to that draft, the head of the IRS division that overseas tax-exempt groups became aware that conservative groups were being targeted for scrutiny in June, 2011. The report does not say whether Douglas Shulman, IRS commissioner at the time, was aware of it.
In 2012, Shulman testified before Congress alongside other senior IRS officials, and vowed that the agency was above politics, and was not targeting any groups on a partisan basis. Shulman left the IRS at the end of 2012.
The news comes as the IRS is facing criticism from all sides for a decision to place additional scrutiny on groups that described themselves using the words "tea party" and "patriot." The IRS apologized for the action on Friday, and laid blame for the decision on lower-level employees based in Ohio.
“We made some mistakes,” said Lois Lerner, director of the agency's tax-exempt team. “For that, we apologize.”
Lerner maintained Friday that the decision to carve out groups with Tea Party affiliations for review was not due to partisan motives, but rather a misguided attempt to streamline applications by sorting them into issue groups.
Lerner said the employees behind the decision were "less sensitive than they should have been about the impact this might have."
The apology, which came after Tea Party groups accused the IRS of targeting them, set off a cascade of criticism from Capitol Hill, as well as the White House.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called for a top-to-bottom review by the administration of the federal government to ensure such "thuggish practices" are not in place elsewhere. Top Republicans in the House said they would be independently investigating the matter.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called the action "inappropriate" and said it would be thoroughly investigated by TIGTA. However, he also added that the IRS is an "independent enforcement agency" with only two political appointees at its head.
The Inspector General for IRS now states they have been targeting these same groups since 2010 -- we knew that!!

GADSDEN FLAG POST CARD CAMPAIGN
The Gadsden Flag Post Card Campaign is a project to make an impression on our elected officials both State and Federal. We know that with the new social media they are being bombarded with emails, faxes, phone calls with public opinions on legislative issues. In order to make a bigger impact and get noticed we are using the “Don’t Tread on Me Postcards” for critical issues to get their attention.
The decision by Justice John Roberts to allow Obamacare to stand as a TAX will be the downfall of liberty in this country if it is not repealed in its entirety. Part of the decision the Court allowed the States to opt out of adding tens of thousands more people on to the medicaid rolls without penalty by the Feds by withholding other Federal dollars as punishment. Part of that decision puts into question the ability of the federal government to set up Health Insurance Exchanges if the states don’t. Further, it brings into question the federal governments ability to level additional taxes against small businesses if they do not provide health care for their employees. These additional taxes will force many small businesses to close, increase the unemployment rate and put many more people on the welfare rolls which is the bottom line intention as a way to enslave the population.
Currently our Governor, Jan Brewer, has accepted over $70 million to establish the State Exchange and is in constant contact with HHS Secretary Sebelius in following the, as yet unwritten, mandates on how this exchange is to be implemented. Gov. Brewer is also trying to side step the legislature by finding a loophole so that she does not have to bring the approval of the exchange before the legislature–the body that is responsible for the budgetary process in Arizona. In other words, she is wanting to dictate to the legislature, the taxpayers and future generations, by obligating Arizona to this debt without following the Arizona Constitution.
WE can stop this exchange from ever starting by putting pressure on the Governor to STOP the EXCHANGE NOW. In a recent interview, Gov. Brewer stated that she was conferring with the Health Care “stakeholders” and will make an informed decision whether to continue to set up the exchange or abandon the whole process. The one missing “stakeholder” that she is NOT talking to is the people who are going to be taxed by the largest tax increase on the middle class in history—YOU, your children and your grandchildren.
Flood the Governors office with post cards, calls, faxes and emails to STOP THE EXCHANGE NOW. You can help by sending the GADSDEN FLAG “DON’T TREAD ON ME” Post cards every Wednesday during the month of August to her office. Here is her contact information:

We will also issue “calls to action” during other times of the month to emphasize the fact that we do not want the Governor to circumvent the Constitution or the taxpayers by implementing this grossly unconstitutional intrusion into our liberty.
Messages need to be brief and succinct and it doesn’t hurt to add a few facts that the Governor may not be aware of:
∙ The cost of ObamaTAX has risen from $890 billion to more than $2.6 TRILLION;
∙ 83% of doctors say they are considering leaving the profession if Obamacare is fully implemented;
∙ Those making $120,000 or less will pay the bills for Obamacare;
∙ Health Care COMPACTS are the Free Market Solution
