Local Paper: The Times Presents Flawed Immigration Poll as Important

illegal-immigrant-sign

Any poll is only as good and accurate as the questions they ask.  The old computer saying GIGO (standing for: garbage in, garbage out) from any objective view would fit the poll done by Harper Polling.  Without looking at the validity of the primary questions Harper asked in their immigration poll, The Times runs a [...]

Some may recall the spontaneous creation of the Tea Party Patriots in 2009. The years that followed can be remembered by the numerous public demonstrations held across the nation with citizens protesting issues such as The Affordable Healthcare Act (Obamacare), the stimulus bill and assembling to promote a constitutionally limited government. Some have inferred that [...]

IRS Abuse of Power/ Scandal

IRS

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 [...]

Stop Experimenting on Our Children: Common Core

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.

Light Horse and Swamp Fox Raid Georgetown, South Carolina

 

On this day in 1781, Patriot commanders Lieutenant Colonel Light Horse Henry Lee and Brigadier General Francis Swamp Fox Marion of the South Carolina militia combine forces and conduct a raid on Georgetown, South Carolina, which is defended by 200 British soldiers.

Marion won fame and the Swamp Fox moniker for his ability to strike and then quickly retreat into the South Carolina swamps without a trace. His military strategy is considered an 18th-century example of guerrilla warfare and served as partial inspiration for the film The Patriot, starring Mel Gibson.

Marion took over the South Carolina militia force first assembled by Thomas Sumter in 1780. Sumter, the other inspiration for Mel Gibson’s character in the film, returned Carolina Loyalists’ terror tactics in kind after Loyalists burned his plantation. When Sumter withdrew from active fighting to care for a wound, Marion replaced him and strategized with Major General Nathaniel Greene, who had recently arrived in the Carolinas to lead the Continental forces. On January 24, the Patriots under Marion and Lee managed to arrive at Georgetown undetected and captured at least three officers, including the British commander.

The following month, Lee’s cavalry was able to defeat a band of Loyalist cavalry at Haw River, North Carolina, by taking advantage of the extreme similarity of Patriot uniforms to those of British Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton’s troops. British Colonel John Pyle’s men at Haw River were surprised to discover that the horsemen approaching them were not friends, as they appeared from a distance, but foes. Losing three fingers and blinding one eye in the course of combat, Colonel Pyle, a doctor by profession, survived by hiding in what is now known as Pyle’s Pond.

Grassroots Making a Difference

Last weekend Northern Indiana Patriots (NIPATS) sent three representatives to the Tea Party Patriots Leadership Conference in Charleston, South Carolina.  The conference was intense and provided NIPATS additional tools for addressing efforts such as GOTV and our out of control government.  Below is a short story on how grassroots action has an impact in shaping the direction of our country.

During one of the Saturday sessions, National Coordinator Debbie Dooley from Georgia received some important news which vividly displays how grassroots makes a difference.  Saturday morning, she was notified that a Georgia federal representative was seriously considering co-sponsoring the Stop Internet Piracy Act  (SOPA).

For those unfamiliar with this legislation and its companion bill the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate, these bills allow overreaching Internet control by the federal government granting them the ability to shutdown Internet sites without judicial review or recourse.

Once Ms. Dooley became aware that this representative was about to co-sponsor the bill, she immediately sent out an email blast to the Tea Party Patriots in Georgia asking them to call, fax, tweet or email the representative to urge him not to support the legislation.  The clock ticked…

That afternoon around 1:30pm, Ms. Dooley received an email from the chief of staff of the GA representative asking  to “call off her patriots,” the Congressman had decided not to co-sponsor the bill.

Often we hear individuals say, “My one call doesn’t make a difference.”, but as you can see in this case it does.  Your one call which may only last a minute or two is amplified by all the other patriots making their one minute call to express their opinion. 

1+1+1+1 can have a dramatic impact in shaping the direction of the country.  Our Congressional representatives work for us. If we do not inform them of our position on various matters they will vote according to forces outside of their constituents’ beliefs.  Ms. Dooley commented that each battle to win Constitutional governance is not a victory, yet our voices do make a difference as shown above.

Take a minute or two and add your elected officials to your phone contact list, this allows for easy access when calling them. Use the handy link “Find My Representative” at the top of this website.

Making these calls are important.

By taking this action you help preserve the American ideal of a government of the people, by the people, for the people.

 

You may even want to inform the staffer that you are a Tea Party Patriot with Northern Indiana Patriots.  Let the Washington elite know we are here, watching and involved.

Health Care Compact Moves Forward

Representative Tim Neese (R-Elkhart)  introduced the Health Care Compact in the Indiana Statehouse. The legislation has now  passed out of the Public Health Committee in the House Chambers by a 7-3 vote and now goes to the House floor for a vote.

From an op-ed  authored by Representative Neese in the Indy Star online:

“The Health Care Compact is an interstate agreement that restores authority and funding for health-care regulations to states, making it more of a “local issue.” The compact has the potential to cut the federal deficit by nearly $3 trillion by 2021, if implemented in all 50 states. The Health Care Compact has already been introduced in 13 states since February 2011 and has been adopted in four states. It is being considered by state legislatures in more than 13 states, including Indiana.”  Read the entire piece at the link above.

There is no reason why 300 million Americans need a single health care program.  And there is certainly no reason why care for our health needs to be administered by Washington insiders. 

Bureaucratic cronyism has filtered into the massive layers of the Affordable Health Care Act.

To provide citizens better choices and a stronger voice, decisions should be made at the state level.

Call your state Representatives and urge their support of this bill.  The House call center is experiencing high call volume but do not allow this to prevent you from making the call.  Hoosiers this is the first step in allowing us to regain control of our health care options.  Use the Find My Representative tab at the top of this website for contact information.

A Thousand Days of Failure

Tonight President Obama delivers his fourth State of the Union address, today also marks  the 1,000th day the Democratic controlled Senate has failed to pass a federal budget.

The Heritage Foundation marks day 1,000 with a series of bullet points on the importance of a federal budget and why the Senate must be compelled to fulfill their Constitutional obligation.

 The last time the Senate passed a budget was on April 29, 2009.

  • Since that date, the federal government has spent $9.4 trillion, adding $4.1 trillion in debt.
  • As of January 20, the outstanding public debt stands at $15,240,174,635,409.
  • Interest payments on the debt are now more than $200 billion per year.
  • President Obama proposed a FY2012 budget last year, and the Senate voted it down 97–0. (And that budget was no prize—according to the Congressional Budget Office, that proposal never had an annual deficit of less than $748 billion, would double the national debt in 10 years and would see annual interest payments approach $1 trillion per year.)
  • The Senate rejected House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s (R–WI) budget by 57–40 in May 2011, with no Democrats voting for it.
  • In FY2011, Washington spent $3.6 trillion. Compare that to the last time the budget was balanced in 2001, when Washington spent $1.8 trillion ($2.1 trillion when you adjust for inflation).
  • Entitlement spending will more than double by 2050. That includes spending on Medicare, Medicaid and the Obamacare subsidy program, and Social Security. Total spending on federal health care programs will triple.
  • By 2050, the national debt is set to hit 344 percent of Gross Domestic Product.
  • Taxes paid per household have risen dramatically, hitting $18,400 in 2010 (compared with $11,295 in 1965). If the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire and more middle-class Americans are required to pay the alternative minimum tax (AMT), taxes will reach unprecedented levels.
  • Federal spending per household is skyrocketing. Since 1965, spending per household has grown by nearly 162 percent, from $11,431 in 1965 to $29,401 in 2010. From 2010 to 2021, it is projected to rise to $35,773, a 22 percent increase.

Christmas Night 1777, Washington Crosses the Delaware

On December 19, 1777 General George Washington arrived with the Continental army to Valley Forge.  Located 18 miles from Philadelphia, Valley Forge would serve as the winter encampment for American forces during the hard winter of 1777-78. The army would see its darkest days there, as well as the first glimmer of hope that victory was possible.

The Continental Army was battered and bruised after a summer full of defeat. British forces had come ashore at the northern end of Chesapeake Bay in August with the intention of taking Philadelphia, the rebellion’s capital. Washington set up a defense of the city, but the tactics of British General Sir William Howe won the day. In the end, the Continental Army lost battles at Brandywine and Germantown; the British gained Philadelphia.

With cold weather drawing near, Washington began to consider locations for winter encampment. Valley Forge was selected for its proximity to Philadelphia and for its topography—Mount Joy and Mount Misery offered high ground while the Schuylkill River to the north marked a clear line of defense. Upon arriving at Valley Forge the Continentals  began to prepare for the weather ahead.
Conditions were terrible. Food of all types was scarce. Most meals consisted of what was called “firecake”, a mixture of flour and water that was then cooked over an open fire. It was essentially tasteless. The men had worn the same clothes for most of the year and had marched the soles off their boots. Blankets were worth their weight in gold. The shelters in which the soldiers slept were damp and crowded, which led to outbreaks of pneumonia, dysentery and typhus. At any one time, nearly twenty percent of the force was unfit for duty. It is estimated that nearly 2,000 men died before spring came. The Continental Army, far from a world-class force under the best of circumstances, was at its breaking point.

Congress and the Constitution

In late August House Majority Leader Eric Cantor published an open memo announcing that House Republicans would seek to block ten regulations currently being considered by various federal administrative agencies. Most of these regulations involve the Environmental Protection Agency, including ozone protection, greenhouse gas regulation, coal ash and utility pollution standards. The National Labor Relations Board is also targeted for its proposed union election rules and its attempt to block Boeing from opening a new, non-union factory in right-to-work South Carolina.
