Also mark your calendar, on September 9th there will be a national conference on Common Core at Notre Dame University in South Bend. Details will be forthcoming on this all-day conference and it is shaping up to be one of the most comprehensive and exciting events that have been held on Common Core to date. Leading experts, such as Sandra Stotsky and James Milgram, will be speaking. Seating will be limited, so watch for registration details soon.
On Tuesday May 21, patriots from across the area participated in the nationwide protest of the IRS. The individuals at the protest took two hours out of their day to have their voices heard. Of the approximate 55 patriots who were at the Merrillville office some used vacation time in order to make the protest, others came after working a 12 hour shift, a couple stopped in briefly during their lunch hour and others rescheduled life events all because each one understood how the IRS actions threatened every Americans first amendment rights.
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.

HOBART | Northern Indiana Patriots will show support for gun rights at an event from 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. today at Mundell Field, 2 N. Wisconsin St.
Members of the local Tea Party organization will be on hand to give out free bumper stickers and pocket constitutions, representative Deborah Miller said.
In addition, members will be asking individuals to sign a petition asking for support of the Second Amendment, Miller said.
The petition, which will be sent to state senators, requests that they “safeguard the rights of law-abiding citizens and be an advocate in protecting the Second Amendment from those who seek to weaken our rights.”

Patriots, we have all heard the threats to curtail our 2nd Amendment rights through Congressional legislation. Apparently, “shall not be infringed” carries a far different meaning to those in Washington than what it meant to our founders and to Americas who understand the Constitution.
The 2nd Amendment is the cornerstone which guarantees every other right we inherently possess as people.
Through national Tea Party Patriots (TPP) we are being offered an opportunity to demonstrate our firmly held belief that the Constitution matters as much today as when our nation was first formed.
On Saturday, February 23, 2013, courtesy of TPP, FREE bumper stickers will be available supporting the 2nd amendment as well as FREE pocket Constitutions.
The way this will work is NIPats will advertise the event, patriots bring non-political signs showing support for the 2nd Amendment as well as United States flags. Some of the Patriots will clean the rear window of the car and attach the sticker showing support for the 2nd Amendment.
We will have a statement of support for the 2nd Amendment which drivers can sign which will be sent to our Senators via registered mail. This event will last approximately one and a half hours or until the stickers are gone.
To make this happen NIPats needs your energy and participation. NIPats requests you to confirm that you will attend the event with signs and flags.
To confirm attendance email us at : NIPatriots at gmail.com
This event will go on regardless of the weather.
Location: Mundell Field, Hobart Map Here
We will stage along the east side of the park, on Wisconsin Street between West Home Avenue and at Cleveland Avenue
Please park in the parking lot or along side streets.
Date: Saturday, February 23, 2013
