While Americans grill out and spend time with loved ones on this Memorial Day, we should never forget the supreme sacrifice some have made to defend our freedom.
God Bless the Armed Forces of the United States of America. We owe them dearly.
Blue Angel’s missing man formation:
From a citizen Journalist a moving tribute:
There are at least four treaties which may come up for a vote in the current Senate, which should have all patriots concerned. As the election draws near watch for a manic explosion of Senate votes on United Nation treaties, none of which align themselves with liberty for American citizens. The potential Senate votes include:
- The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS or LOST, “Law of the Sea), which cedes control of all the world’s oceans and their contents, including our territorial waters, to the U.N. As a nation we lose our sovereignty with passage of this treaty. The treaty was established by the U.N. in 1994 but Obama administration and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry (D-MA) are beginning a new push to seek ratification. Senator Dick Lugar requested that Kerry hold off on the ratification process until after his primary, because he was inclined to support the treaty but recognized that his support could be used against him politically. The Law of the Sea treaty has sat dormant through both previous Democrat and Republican administrations, insiders on capital hill are of the belief that a vote will be taken soon.;
- The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, aka, Small Arms Treaty, that could virtually outlaw privately owned firearms or ammunition of any sort, given its ambiguous language. Last month a U.N. committee met in New York and signed off on several provisions, including the creation of a new U.N. agency to regulate international weapon sales, and require countries that host firearms manufacturers to set up a compensation fund for victims of gun violence worldwide.The ambiguous wording of this treaty threatens the 2nd amendment of the US Constitution.;
- The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), which takes away parental rights to raise their children as they choose, and gives them to the U.N. This treaty sounds friendly enough, because who would be against protecting children? Yet the language of the treaty cedes authority of children from parents to the U.N., parents become nothing but caregivers. For further information on what the ramifications could be if passed read here.;
- The International Criminal Court, which allows foreigners to have Americans arrested and tried in kangaroo international courts, using foreign law. One potential concern of this treaty is that U.S. service members and officials could at risk of prosecution by a court that is unaccountable to the American people, and has no obligation to respect the constitutional rights of our citizens.
Patriots it is important that you call or email Senators Coats and Lugar, informing them that as their constituents you OPPOSE ratification of these treaties by the Senate.

Partnering with the national Tea Party Patriots, Northern Indiana Patriots (NIPats) is soliciting from its members a question which only each of you can individually answer.
Is our electoral process and its integrity important to you?
If there was a way you could help fight the antagonist assault on the electoral process, would you?
Would you be willing to travel to Wisconsin for a day or two or longer and canvas conservatives in local neighborhoods to supply information on, why voting against the recall is vital to the integrity of voting and stability of governance across the nation? And what if the cost was minimal, would you take time out of your life to stand for our republic and the electoral process? Tea Party Patriots have scholarships available to off-set the cost.
If traveling and canvassing is not possible, would you donate some time between now and June 5th to make calls to conservative homes, working from a script, to urge them to vote against the recall because the result of this election is larger than the state of Wisconsin?
Tea Party individuals across the nation are trekking to Wisconsin, some will be there for a single day and others have committed to being on the ground in Wisconsin until the June 5th election. Together we can make a difference, together we can stand tall for the core principles which make this country great.
Interested in helping out with boots on the ground or making calls? Visit the Tea Party Patriots link here.
The link above can also be used if you want to donate any amount large or small to help off-set the cost for a patriot traveling.
A cornerstone of our republic is the electoral process. Citizens of this great country are afforded an opportunity to elect officials to represent them in the government. Various candidates seek our vote through both the primary process and then in the general election by stating their policy positions and stances on the issues; the electorate (We-The-People) then vote accordingly. Unlike other countries throughout the world, we have orderly elections and a peaceful transfer of power to the newly elected. This is what a truly free society maintains for her people, a stable, consistent and orderly government.
Wisconsin’s use of a recall election may leave Hoosiers a bit perplexed. Indiana does not have recall of elected officials. From our perspective this a good thing, elections have consequences and the voting rights we have as Americans are vital in maintaining our liberties. How can there be stability of governance, when a handful of special interest groups can throw an entire state into chaos, circumventing the will of the people who voted during the general election?
This is what has happened in Wisconsin with a recall election scheduled for June 5th.
Wishing you and yours a joyous holiday and prosperous New Year!
In a little under a week the 10th anniversary of the worst attack on American soil will be remembered. A nationwide project is forming to encourage massive displays of the American flag. Be part of this simple tribute and encourage others to do the same.
On Sunday, September 11th, 2011, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States. Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this tenth anniversary of one of our country’s worst tragedies.
