Multiple Your Voice
Often individuals believe that their voice is unheard amid the constant static heard in Washington or at the local level with elected officials. Yet the calls you make do count and they can sway a politician who is soft on an issue. Each politician uses their own formula to gauge constituent calls and determine the “pulse” of the voters in their elected areas.
The Tea Party Patriots website has crashed, organizers say, due to the high volume of interest in the nationwide protests planned for over 100 Internal Revenue Offices across the nation.
The website crashed after Rush Limbaugh highlighted the grassroots organization as a place to get information about the protests.

Memorial Day is a time for us to remember all those that have given the most extreme sacrifice in defense of our nation.
This year in addition to flying your flag in memory, Patriots across the nation will be tying BLUE ribbons in memory of those who lost their lives in Benghazi. Tie the ribbons to your antenna of your car, to the tree in front of your home with a sign saying “Benghazi, we will not forget”and/or wear a blue ribbon. Anyone that asks what the ribbons are for, tell them that as Americans we deserve answers to what happened that fateful day.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is arguably the most powerful and feared agency within the United States government. They alone have the ability to presume a company, organization or individual guilty of crime, making the grieved party responsible for asserting and proving innocence.
Starting in March of 2011 news reports surfaced of the IRS using intimidation factors on Tea Party, Patriot and 912 Project groups as they sought non-profit status as a 501(c)3 and 4. Although alternative media sources and those plugged in at a national level of Patriot groups knew of the intimidation before the 2011 news reports.
The current administration in Washington ignored the IRS abuse of power and chose to label the abusive actions of the IRS against the citizens of the country as merely an overactive conspiracy theory mindset. The federal government is trying to sell the mantra to the citizens that the groups affected by the actions of the IRS are just making this all up.
A conspiracy theory is not a conspiracy theory if it is proven to be true.

Whether you have children in the educational system or not, understanding the threat of Common Core to our republic is vital. Understanding the core principles of our republic requires more than just a cursory reading of the founding documents, it requires the ability to use critical thinking skills. Instead of higher educational goals which encourage the development of critical thinking skills, the new curriculum becomes a race to the middle not to the top for our children.
The first of five videos which explain Common Core and answer the questions of why you should be concerned. HERE
UPDATE with additional resources:
A true threat is under way which many citizens are unaware of, yet the impact will have dire results for all children. A nationalized set of educational standards is being pushed through many state legislatures with no concrete knowledge of what these standards mean for our children.
Instead of higher educational goals which encourage the development of critical thinking skills, the new curriculum becomes a race to the middle not to the top for our children.
Common Core, the name of the nationalized standards program, currently only covers two subject areas: math and english. However it sets in motion the framework for total inclusion of all pre-K through 12 education. Eventually these nationalized standards will be included curriculum for both home school and charter students. In fact the publisher of the ACT has already agreed to adapt the test to be in-line with the nationalized standards.
Understand that Common Core is not just different measures of learning through tests but entirely different methods of teaching. In Indiana, for example, the current standards in math are higher then what will be expected with the new material. We are dumbing down our kids. Currently educators are allowed to adapt material to individual student needs in learning, this no longer will this be allowed. Curriculum in Common Core is only allowed to be taught in one manner. Huge corporations such as Microsoft are pushing Common Core because of the future windfall of dollars they will receive with its implementation in creating programs for testing. Local communities will have no say in what is taught or how it is taught, never mind that a vast majority of dollars which fund education come from the state not the federal government. And who does not believe that local school districts and the community know better what their students need and how it should be taught?
The recent filibuster by Senator Rand Paul should uplift the spirits of every patriot. Unlike some previous filibusters which centered on reading documents like the Constitution or Declaration of Independence, the entire 13 hours of the Senator’s Paul filibuster centered on the rights of Americans and sought clarification from the administration on previously ambiguous statements regarding drone attacks on Americans on US soil.
“I will speak as long as it takes until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that the Constitution is important.”
– Senator Rand Paul, 3/6/13
NIPats stands firm in our conviction that there should be NO ambiguity to the unabridged unalienable rights we possess as Americans. Thank you Senator Paul. After the 13 hour filibuster, Attorney General Holder was compelled to clarify the administration’s position on strikes against US citizens.
From AG Holder, “It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: ‘Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil.’ The answer to that question is no.”
