AFTER ACTION REPORT: Tea Party Express Michigan

You’ll have to excuse my brevity here but I am still recovering from a whirlwind and demanding tour schedule as a guest speaker for the Michigan leg of the Tea Party Express. Ten cities and over 500 miles in 4 days! Great turnout in all cities and Bart Stupak resigns…Perfect 🙂

Well every picture tells a story doesn’t it? So I’ll let the pictures do that PHOTO ALBUM OF TEA PARTY EXPRESS MICHIGAN TOUR

Just a few pictures of the many uploaded to the album…

AFTER ACTION REPORT: LIBERALS GONE WILD!

The most egregious action was before I could whip out my trusty Flip camera. However, the pudgy man, Erin Fox, in the extreme close up (sorry) is a usual suspect, “community organizer” and MoveOn.org operative

I have encountered him at other actions and his modus operanti is always the same, trying to get in your face to disturb and/or name calling. Although his physical intimidation is getting more aggressive as he realizes that his “religion” the Health Care bill is in big trouble.

The young man with the dark hair that I point out as another “usual suspect” is either a MoveOn.org operative or works for the Democrat party. I recently had another “close encounter” with him at the Sanctity of Life Rally January 22 at our state Capitol, where he was counter-protesting life in favor of abortion.

We had formed a line in front of the counter-protesters and so our backs were turned to them, (not really a good idea when dealing with progressives). His tactic was to come from behind and lean in as close as possible without actually touching to yell things like, “Keep your rosary off my body” (odd coming from a man?) and “pro-family, pro-life”. He can be seen carrying the sign “Keep Abortion Legal” while clutching his upscale brand coffee I am sure Biggy’s is grateful for the pro-abortion “advertising”

See video below of Sanctity of Life counter-protest by these usual suspects

What is really disturbing about this is how militant against life these people are at such a young age. Hearts hardened and conscience seared. However when we realize that these young people have known nothing but legalized abortion in this country, the acceptance of what is “legalized murder” is sadly understandable. Seeing and knowing this, we must consider giving greater time and energy to the pro-life movement. Its a historical facts history that when any civilization no matter how great loses its moral underpinnings then that civilization falls.

The upshot of all of this is that if progressives do not respect life, how can they be expected to respect free speech? Obviously answer, they can’t and they don’t

Dems Refuse GOP Efforts to Strip Bribes From Health Care Bill

Gateway Pundit

December 23, 2009 Jim Hoft

Senator Mike Johanns asked consent today to strike the special carve-outs from the Senate health care bill. Democrats immediately objected, thwarting the effort.

“There should be no special deals, no carve-outs for anyone in this health care bill; not for states, not for insurance companies, not for individual senators.

“All of the special deals should be removed. If the bill cannot pass without carve-outs, what further evidence is needed that it is bad policy? No senator should vote for the final cloture vote until all of the carve-outs and special deals are removed.

“Nebraskans don’t want a special deal, they want good policy. They don’t believe the Federal Government is the answer to every problem and they don’t like backroom deals.”

Below is a sample of special deals he offered to strike:

** Eliminating or reducing the Medicaid unfunded mandate on Nebraska, Vermont, and Massachusetts (starting on page 96, line 9) ** Exempting certain health insurance companies in Nebraska and Michigan from taxes and fees (starting on page 367, line 6) ** Providing automatic Medicare coverage for anyone living in Libby, Montana (starting on page 194 – section 10323) ** Earmarking $100 million for a “Health Care Facility” reportedly in Connecticut (starting on page 328) ** Giving special treatment to Hawaii’s Disproportionate Share Hospitals (starting on page 101, line 6) ** Boosting reimbursement rates for certain hospitals in Michigan and Connecticut (starting on page 174 – section 10317) ** Mandating special treatment for hospitals in “Frontier” States like Montana, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Wyoming (starting on page 208 — Sec 10324)…Excerpt..Read More at

Setting Brush Fires…Why not Filibuster?

It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds. Samuel Adams

Finance committee vote on Baucus bill scheduled for this coming Tuesday….
This is crunch time folks. We need to flood the Finance Committee members with faxes, phones, call and e-mails (least effective)

Here is a link to all members of the Finance Committee and their contact information

Debbie Stabenow is on the Committee. She needs to be flooded with e-mails and faxes and pink slips! Turn you e-mail or fax into a pink slip! YOU’RE DONE DEBBIE!

What happens when the Baucus bill gets out of committee?

Washington Examiner Opinion

“Whatever the content of the Baucus bill once it is voted out of the finance committee, it will disappear into a legislative black hole as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and their key aides do what they did on the economic stimulus package back in February — huddle together behind closed doors to write the final bill, which will then be presented as a fait accompli in the form of a conference report. Everything else is mere sound and fury signifying nothing until Harry and Nancy do their thing in the dark.”

From FedUpUsa

Nicholas Ballasy reports “a senior aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told CNSNews.com that it is ‘likely’ that Reid will use H.R. 1586—a bill passed by the House in March to impose a 90-percent tax on bonuses paid to employees of certain bailed-out financial institutions—as a ‘shell’ for enacting the final version of the Senate’s health care bill, which Reid is responsible for crafting.”

This procedure is the same unconstitutional procedure they used to pass the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act (EESA) back in November to give Hank Paulson his ‘$700 Billion Bazooka.’

Article I, Sec. 7: ALL bills for raising revenue will originate in the House.

They are doing exactly what they did with EESA/TARP – by passing the house by putting the HC bill on a revenue bill. This results in the Senate originating a revenue bill!

Washington DC must be shut down now. We are about to lose our country entirely.

Stephanie S. Jasky, Founder, Director

I agree with Stephanie, we must call/fax AND we need to include top Republicans/Conservatives. They SHOULD be shouting this from the roof tops and planning a Senate filibuster
Why aren’t they????

Senate filibuster from “The Making of America, the substance and meaning of the Constitution” by W. Cleon Skousen…

…the principled devise for is for a small group of Senators to get con troll of the floor and talk in tandem for long periods of time. The whole object is a delaying action”

In 1935, Huey Long of LA (Democrat) held the Senate floor for 15 hours while he read form the telephone book, a mail order catalog and the newspaper. The longest filibuster on record is that of Strom Thurmond of SC (when he was a Democrat) He held the Senate floor in 1957 for twenty-four hours

The Impact of Filibusters

Obviously, a filibuster has the greatest impact on the Senate when a 60-vote majority cannot be assembled to invoke cloture. In that case, the measure or other matter that is being filibustered is doomed unless its opponents relent and allow the Senate to vote on it. Even if cloture is invoked, however, a filibuster can significantly affect how, when, and even whether the Senate conducts its legislative and executive business. In fact, it is not an exaggeration to say that filibusters and the prospect of filibusters shape much of the way in which the Senate does its work on the floor

Why shouldn’t Republicans/Conservatives filibuster now? Is there less at stake then in the past? Wouldn’t that get press and therefore give them an opportunity to expose the plan to more Americans?

So the Democrats/Liberal/Fascists can use cloture to stop the filibuster but it takes 60% of the Senate, every Democrat and both Independents and…. time

“The votes of only 51 Senators are needed to pass a bill on the floor. It can, however, require the votes of 60 Senators to invoke cloture on the bill in order to overcome a filibuster and enable the Senate to reach that vote on final passage.”

Conservatives can use the filibuster to our country’s benefit, to tell the American people why they are doing it. The Democrats/Liberal/Fascists can counter with the “Nuclear Option”

But would they? They want bi-partisan, or at least the illusion of it and if they do go ahead with a Nuclear Option, Republican/Conservatives can counter…Democrats/Liberal/Fascists squashed debate again, rammed through another massive government control spending bill. They wanted this thing; we didn’t want any part of it!

Either way this bill is going to get passed because the “usual suspect” RINOS will defect (think Olympia Snowe) but it could be in lesser form and with the Republicans/Conservatives showing that they did everything to stop another massive spending bill of over a trillion dollars coupled with a government take over of our liberties! In other words, their job.

Lets’ face it what do they have to lose?
Republicans/Conservatives have been shut out, disregarded and disrespected 37 ways to Sunday by this administration, especially by Pelosi and Reid. Remember Pelosi hissed, “We Won” and then proceeded (excuse my language) to bitch slap the Republicans/Conservatives around.

We have had tea parties, calls/faxes e-mails, taken to the streets, counter-protested, gave and went to Town Halls, blogged, YouTubed, we have went toe-to toe and sometimes face-to-face with the opposition. And worked over time because we know it takes ACTION!

I want to see some courageous forget-about-my-career action from The Hill!

Where is our William Wallace?

Instead of focusing on the opposition entirely, perhaps we need to focus and demand that those on our side have a tea party of their own!!

The very future of our country is at stake…TEA PARTY ON THE HILL!
