Rachel Madcow Pushes Tea Bagger Comments To Lunatic Edge

Rachel Madcow pushed the limits for even herself on Friday’s show as she covered the National Tea Party Convention.  Not only do the libtards like Madcow need some history lessons, but her extreme comments reveal the fear that the Progressives have when it comes to We The People in the grassroots.  Here is the transcript from the part of her show that I am referencing (h/t Newsbusters):

Freedom’s Wings 2009 Year In Review

First black president inaugurated.  Remember these empty words from the speech: “On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.”  He promised to “begin again the work of remaking America.”  My how he has begun that by remaking us into his community organized Marxist utopia.  And the lies continued with, “And those of us who manage the public’s dollars will be held to account – to spend wisely, reform bad habits and do our business in the light of day – because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.”

The President goes on to spend more in his first year than all other presidents combined.

Auto bailouts.  General Motors (GM) becomes Government Motors as the government becomes the majority shareholder.  President Obama, in an unprecedented move, fires the CEO of GM.

Insurance giant AIG almost goes under, but the government comes to the rescue again and provides a large bailout.  AIG subsequently passes out large bonuses to executives and parties big time on our dime.  “Outraged citizens” are bused around by ACORN to the different executives homes in staged demonstrations.

Obama spent the year circling the globe, apologizing for America everywhere he went.  Who can forget the Cairo Speech, UN speech, bows to Saudi King, Japanese Emperor and Chinese Premier and handshake with Hugo Chavez?

The President moves the Census from the Department of Commerce to the White House and attempts to have ACORN run it.

Obama does away with enhanced interrogation techniques and orders that only the Army Field Manual will be employed leading to…

No more “War on Terror”.  It is now dubbed the Overseas Contingency Operation and terrorists become enemy combatants and then just criminals.  Terrorists acts become “man-made disasters .”  In that vein, the decision is made by Attorney General Holder to try the 9/11 terrorists in New York City.  Obama begins to realize his dream of closing GITMO by releasing Jihadists to Bermuda and having the government buy a prison in Illinois where the detainees will be moved.

Attorney General Eric Holder also drops charges on Black Panthers who intimidated people at polling places and in a speech refers to America as a “nation of cowards.”

Maoists and Marxists are revealed to be rampant in the Obama administration.  Green Jobs Czar Van Jones steps down as well as Anita Dunn who declared Mao to be one of her heroes along with Mother Theresa.

Obama declares that he has saved the economy from the brink and the recession is over.  Economy has slight bump up, but stock market continues to yo-yo and financial bubbles loom in the future along with the collapse of the dollar.  Several countries suggest unhinging from dollar and seeking a new global currency.

The Porkulus Bill (Stimulus recovery) is passed and Obama promises to save or create 4, no wait 3.5, um make that 3 million jobs.  It has been an utter failure with rampant fraud and the few jobs created costing somewhere in the area of $200,000 each.  Record unemployment has reached levels as much as 10.2% federally with most states suffering much worse numbers.

Air Force One flying over New York City and the Statue of Liberty for a photo op, sending New Yorkers running for their lives thinking 9/11 is happening again.

Obama appointed Sonia Sotomayor as the first Hispanic to the Supreme Court.  A woman whom has made blatant racist comments and believes that policy is created from the bench.

The Beer Summit!  Who can forget the President jumping to conclusions and declaring that the Cambridge Police Force acted stupidly when arresting a friend of his, Professor Gates.  The President promptly invited his friend and Sgt. James Crowley for a photo op teachable moment at the White House and the three men drank beer around a table while accomplishing nothing.

Two omnibus spending bills full of pork and earmarks passed by Congress and signed by the President.  One has 9,00- earmarks and the other contains 5,000.  A separate Defense Bill contains several billion more in earmarks.  What happened to no earmarks?

Approval ratings for the President go into freefall.  An upper seventy percentage rating upon Inauguration eventually deflated to a 46% approval rating.

This year’s budget deficit: $1.6 trillion

Concerned citizens dubbed “right wing extremists” in a DHS Report entitled, “Right Wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence In Radicalization and Recruitment.”

Obama drops plans for a missile defense shield in Poland.

The Obama family brings home their family dog, Bo.  An expensive, hard to find breed and not a shelter dog.

Obama announced plans for Afghanistan surge of troops.  He chooses to send 30,000 although General McChrystal requested much more and soldiers I have talked to suggest at lease 100,000 are needed and probably more.

Obama meets the Queen of England and gives her an iPod already loaded with his speeches.  He gives the Prime Minister a set of DVDs that do not work in European machines.

The Heathcare Debate!  This has gone on for the better part of the entire year with a final culmination in the House passing a bill and then the Senate passing a bill. The bills now need to merge in committee.  The House plan has a public option while the Senate version does not.  The debate over government healthcare has outraged citizens and created deep dividing lines between socialism and the free market.

The healthcare debate and outrageous spending lead to rallies across the nation dubbed as Tea Parties.  And a movement was sparked!  Concerned citizens have gathered throughout the year at rallies, counter-rallies, townhalls and tea parties to protest government intrusion, taxes, and loss of freedom.  The goal has been to get America back to her founding principles.  Large gatherings happened simultaneously nationwide on Tax Day, Independence Day and a large 9/12 March On Washington that was attended by over one million people.  The tea parties caused liberals to lose their heads, like Janeane Garofalo who called tea partiers “red neck racists” and MSNBC commentators to call tea partiers “teabaggers”, and the President to pretend to be unaware of the protests and then finally refer to the rallies as places where people were waving around tea bags.

The President promises to dismantle our nuclear stockpile while North Korea test fires missiles and Iran ramps up efforts to make nuclear bombs.  Iran has ignored all international requests to cease and desist and the President and other leaders have been left impotent.

Miracle on the Hudson!  One of the few feel good stories of the year.  Pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger was able to bring down a full airliner after a flock of birds took out both engines without anyone dying and only a few injuries, using the Hudson River as a landing strip.  People will recall images of the passengers waiting on the wings of the sinking plane as ferries raced out to rescue everyone.

The Swine Flu!  The name quickly was changed to H1N1 Virus and everyone fears that a pandemic is on the horizon.  America overreacts as only a few thousand die.  Far below the number that die from the regular seasonal flu.  Not enough vaccine is made available and rationing begins legitimizing fears that government run healthcare will lead to rationing.

The Iranian Protests!  A fraudulent vote puts Iamadinnerjacket back in power and outraged Iranians take to the streets in the summer.  The protests continue to this day as Iranians make their move toward full revolution to overthrow their corrupt government.  Obama gives no support and promises that we will “bear witness”.  Gee thanks, Barry!

Somali pirates!  Pirates have long been a problem, but until this year and remained largely ignored by America.  That was until the Maersk Alabama, an American ship, was hijacked.  Captain Richard Phillips offered up himself as a hostage as his crew locked themselves below deck.  For days we watched the pirates hold the captain hostage in a dingy.  Finally, the Navy SEALS took action and killed three of the four pirates and freed Capt. Phillips.  New reports from the crew disparage the Captain’s courage and claim he was captured because he was stupid, but it still was a great day for our military.

The Ft. Hood Massacre!  On November 5th, Jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan, a US Army Major, mowed down 13 people (14 if you count the unborn baby) and wounded 30 others at Ft. Hood in Texas.  A female police officer takes him down leaving him paralyzed from the waist down.  The President takes a long time to address the nation and spends the first two minutes of his comments giving a shout out and thanking everyone at the gathering he is at for a great time and is quite jovial.  Americans are left baffled by the man boy pretending to be a leader.  Obama tells everyone not to jump to conclusions – unlike what he did with the Cambridge Police.

Bernie Madoff commits the largest Ponzi scheme in history leaving millions penniless.  He is sentenced to 150 years in prison.

Roman Polanski finally arrested for a 1970s sex charge for drugging and raping a thirteen year old girl.  He is put under house arrest.

ClimateGate!!  The global warming hoax is up.  The Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia in Eastern Europe is hacked and emails are released to the public that revealed an effort to cover up cooling temperatures, efforts to shut down scientists who were debunking manmade global warming and revealing an effort to coach certain members of the media in how to report on climate change.  They deliberately changed, manipulated and deleted data.  This came out before the Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen and world leaders, including Obama, completely ignore it.

Ted Kennedy dies.  Boo hoo…

Susan Boyle blows us all away with the voice of an angel and the face of a troll.  She has become a sensation and sold more records internationally then anyone else.  The video of her break out goes viral with several million hits.

Governor Mark Sanford went “hiking on the Appalachian Trail” and came back from Argentina with tales of his lurid affair with a woman.  All prospects for this conservative to have a run at the presidency vanish and his wife leaves him.  Calls for his impeachment fail, but that won’t take away his title as “Scum”.

Governor Sarah Palin quits her job as governor of Alaska.  She claims to be stepping down because of numerous lawsuits that are wasting time and money for the state.  Supporters like myself think she has made a stupid move that has killed her chances at the presidency, but her ability to raise funds has soared.  Not to mention sales of her memoir which has broken records this year.

Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize for doing…nothing.
Tiger Woods and his Mistresspalooza.  One of the most celebrated and inspiring athletes of all time proves to be a schmuck.  The list of women he has cheated with during his brief marriage grows and grows and came to light after his wife tried to attack him with a golf club.  For now, Woods has quit golf and his wife has moved out.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, two entities behind the housing bubble crash are bailed out a few times and then given an unlimited line of credit…forever.

Debt ceiling raised to: $12.4 trillion

Jihadist attempts to blow up himself and a Detroit bound jet on Christmas Day.  He gets through security with a device hidden in his underwear.  He gets through also despite the fact he is on a watch list, has no baggage, pays cash and gets a one way ticket.  Not to mention he is Muslim and his father has reported his extremist ways to the US embassy.  American security has egg on its face and, thanks only to a bad detonator and a brave Dutchman, no blood on its hands.  The President waits three days to address the country about the attack and is weak.  Janet Napalitano, Secretary of Homeland Security, claims everything went well and then backtracks.  We are still waiting for her resignation.

And finally the people who died this year: Natasha Richardson, David Carradine, DJ AM, Walter Conkrite, Farrah Fawcett, Paul Harvey, Billy Mays, Les Paul, Karl Malden, Patrick Swayze, Ricardo Montalban, Ron Silver, Dom DeLuise, Director John Hughes, William Safire, Soupy Sales, Jack Kemp, Roy Disney, Bea Arthur, Dominick Dunne, Ed McMahon, Brittany Murphy and Michael Jackson.

Good riddance 2009!!!

Republican National Organizations and Committees Are On Notice

I am sick to death of receiving these idiotic surveys in the mail that are just “cloaked” attempts to beg for money.  I do not like receiving money requests from charities in the mail either.  If I am going to give money to a group, I will do so without having to be asked.  I have received surveys from all types of GOP organizations and conservative think tanks like Heritage Foundation.  They are idiotic in my perception because they know damn well what conservative values conservatives have without needing to ask.  They know what issues I want them to focus on.  Why else have I been standing in the streets and calling on the phones?  Are none of them listening either?

I answered the first survey I received diligently.  Subsequent surveys left me feeling disillusioned and so I turned to writing my own comments all over the surveys.  These surveys are always accompanied by a letter from some Republican leader.  The most recent one I received, blew my top because it was from Newt Gingrich.  Newt Gingrich?!  He thinks and the Republican Senate Committee thinks I will send money on his account?!  I scrawled across the back that we are refounding and restoring the GOP and if they expected me to answer their survey and, more importantly, send them money, then they should not send letters from a fraud like Newt Gingrich who believes in Party before principles.

And that is what is going on with the Tea Party Movement.  I have had one of my blogs linked to by both Politico and Alan Colmes, in which I claim that our movement is grassroots and non-partisan.  They are trying to claim that we are not since we have focused on the GOP.  I do not see how we are supporting the GOP and being partisan when we are trying to take the GOP over or at least take it back.  We live in a country that supports a two-party system; unfortunately, and we are trying to work within those parameters.  But we are not above backing third party candidates either, when we have to, as the nation observed in NY23.

The GOP and all affiliates are on notice.  You either get on board the Tea Party Train or we will leave you in our steam.

Tea Party Express Comes To End In Orlando

101_0373There was an Autumn chill in the air as the Tea Party Express rolled into Orlando, but that did not stop the patriots from coming.  At least 6,000 to 7,000 people were in attendance for the final stop on the Tea Party Express bus tour.  And we were not disappointed as the Tea Party Express pulled out all the stops with speakers we have come to know very well.  There was Kenneth Gladney, who you might remember as the black conservative beat up by SEIU thugs in St. Louis.

There was Katy Abrams, who was just your average American citizen until she stood up at Arlen Sphincter’s townhall and called him on the mat and informed him that they had awakened a sleeping giant.101_0368

Tea Party Patriot founder, Amy Kramer, spoke along with ResistNet.com’s Darla D. and Patriot’s Heart Network founder, Chalice spoke as well about her group’s work with the eligibility issue.

Lloyd Marcus performed some of his great music including the American Tea party Anthem.  I had the pleasure of getting my CD autographed and getting a photograph taken:

I also had the pleasure of meeting Mark Olsen, the author of Animal Colony, whom I interviewed on the radio show last month.

It was a huge success and has set us up to issue pink slips to those in Washington DC who still refuse to listen to us.  We are out here.  We are great in number.  We are not weary.  We will only get louder and stronger.  As Rick Santelli infamously declared, “President Obama, are you listening?

Tea Party Patriots Are Truly Grassroots And Non-Partisan

As a regular tea party attendee, I follow the Tea Party Patriots grassroots group and am a member.  I received an email that I want to share because I feel it is important to our movement that the following statements from Tea Party Patriots gets broad viewing.  It is important for groups to distance themselves and criticize publically fellow groups that damage the work we are doing to refound our Republic.  Recently, the Tea Party Express made its way across America and was covered in the media via embedded reporters from CNN and FOX News and the like.  Apparently, the leadership of the group that sponsored the Tea Party Express are more about promoting themselves and funding Republicans.  Protestors like myself do not endorse either party and are tired of our two party system and fed up with the government in general.  To find out that this group is so in bed with the Republicans is dis-heartening.  So Tea Party Patriots has delivered the following statement, which I support completely:

Tea Party Patriots wishes to confirm that it does not directly or indirectly support or endorse any activities of Our Country Deserves Better, the political action committee (PAC) responsible for the ‘Tea Party Express’ bus tour conducted from 8/28 through 9/12 of this year, and an upcoming tour recently announced.
The Vice Chairman of OCDB and spokesman for the Tea Party ExpressMark Williams, has described President Obama as an “Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug,” and the “Racist in Chief“, phrases he defended recently in an interview on CNN. Tea Party Patriots disagrees strongly with President Obama on many issues, but we believe such statements are inappropriate and harmful to the healthy debate our country demands on challenging issues. Furthermore, Williams’ antics play into the hands of mainstream media attempts to paint the Tea Party movement as a racist, radical fringe as opposed to the genuine grassroots movement representing all walks of American life that it truly is.   In addition, in June, at a Tea Party Patriots event in Sacramento,  Williams was requested to stop his verbal criticism of local law enforcement officers who were trying to stop him from interfering with other lawfully assembled citizens.  Among other things, Williams used his megaphone to warn those present that they needed to move away from the officers by shouting through his megaphone, “Trust me, I grew up in Boston, you don’t want a cop on horseback swinging at your head.”  People on the scene objected to his behavior, and in fact, law enforcement officers on the scene were polite and respectful, and were merely trying to get Mr. Williams to respect the rights of other individuals who had lawful permits.   Full video of the incident is available on request.  Subsequent to the event, Williams issued a written apology for his outrageous behavior towards law enforcement officers (again, available on request).  Again, this type of behavior is precisely the brush with which our opposition wishes to paint us, and we believe it is important to decisively separate ourselves from people who behave in this way.
Furthermore, Williams directly attacked the genuine heart and soul of the tea party movement on, of all days, the morning of September 12th. While patriots from around the country were gathering in Washington, Williams posted a vitriolic blog entry about the August 28th Sacramento Tea Party event (where the Tea Party Express started its tour) in which he declared that he “can now report that at the Sac828 ‘Tea Party’ event was anything but”, describing it as “a rally representing tax-subsidized agricultural and industrial interests” whose speakers were “lobbyists and other representatives of big business.” On the contrary, the organizers and speakers at the Sacramento event represented a tremendous grassroots effort on the part of hardworking local organizers from across California fighting the worst aspects of big government gone wild. Williams further bragged in an email to TPP leadership that “The national media embedded with me has been waiting for me to publish this story [with a link to his blog post] so that they can run with it.” On the day when our fellow patriots were gathering in and focusing all eyes on the amazing event in Washington, Mark Williams was apparently focused on promoting divisive and false accusations about the Tea Party movement to the mainstream media.
Finally, Our Country Deserves Better is a PAC.  And while we have no problems with PACs, and they definitely have their place in the political system today, they fulfill a very different role than the tea parties.   If you take the time to review OCDB’s FEC filings, you will find pages and pages of expenditures for Republican candidates and against Democrat candidates.  Equally important, the political knowledge, muscle and primary operations of the PAC appear to come from a political consulting firm in Sacramento called Russo Marsh & Rogers.  A review of the RMR website shows that they are long time Republican political consultants.  As of this writing, their website appears to indicate  that their electoral work across the country has been on behalf of Republican candidates whom they are paid to represent, and has been for many years.  And if one looks at the FEC filings, it appears that the largest portion of the money raised by OCDB gets paid directly to Russo Marsh & Rogers.  Please look at the filings for yourselves and make your own determination.
While there is nothing improper about this type of partisanship, it is our belief that this is not what the tea parties are about.  Tea Party Patriots has worked very hard to be issue oriented regardless of political party affiliation.  We support our core values:  fiscal responsibility, Constitutionally limited government, and free markets over any political party.  In order to remain non-partisan, we must separate ourselves from organizations that are partisan and are attempting to raise money using the non-partisan tea party movement.
Because of Williams’ actions and his leadership role in OCDB and the Tea Party Express,  and because of the partisan fundraising nature of OCDB and the Tea Party Express, the Tea Party Patriots cannot and will not support OCDB and in particular urges all local tea party activists not to participate in or support OCDB’s second national Tea Party Express bus tour.  We firmly believe that the fight for limited government and the Tea Party movement has room for many groups of all types, and we effectively work with many of them.   But it has no room for those who attack grassroots organizers, use the tea party movement for partisan political fund raising,  or who go out of their way to make offensive statements that serve only to drive people away from our cause.
Sincerely,
Tea Party Patriots, Inc.

Note: Williams un-published his 9/12 blog post several days after posting it, and so the link no longer works.   He has never apologized or retracted his statements, however; the full text of his post can be provided upon request.

Patriotic Resistance Takes It To The Battlefield Of D.C.

Today is the day – a day that will go down in history much like the Boston Tea Party.  We The People will stand in solidarity in cities across America with those that have taken the fight to Washington D.C. for the March On Washington.  No longer will the government be able to ignore the tens of thousands of angry citizens who represent millions.  No longer will the mainstream media be able to pass us off as a few right wing extremist nutjobs.  We are the majority!  And we are winning.  Czars are brought into the light and must leave in Marxist shame and now ACORN has been revealed and the census has been ripped away.  The momentum is building and they are shaking in their boots in Washington. 

I will be here today and will, of course, have video to follow – no LIVE show today:
