From Tea Party to Operation American Spring

Eagle Praying

One of the fundamental changes that has been forced upon Americans is the inappropriately named Affordable Health Care Act. This has been, and continues to be, the gift that keeps on giving, however the majority of the GOP has chosen to ignore this gift of political opportunity and the result is they have done nothing more than wail and gnash their teeth at the very people who gave them the House in 2010, asking only that this destructive law would be repealed, and here we are in 2014 still under the yoke of the Affordable Health Care Act.

It is a mystery and perhaps even something other worldly that this political gift which was tied in a beautiful bow, woven out of the fabric of their constituents, has been cast aside under their tree of special interest privilege. The Tea Party citizens of this country were like the pearls before the swine to this old guard GOP who have proven to be completely undeserving of our loyalty and trust.

Early response to the inaction of these representatives brought many Tea Party members to fully engage in the political system.  Many ran for office and continue to do so. What began from the grassroots is now an integral part of the political machine. This is good for the most part but, make no mistake, those who have entered politics are no longer fully rooted to the grassroots movement of 2009. A large portion of the Tea Party functions as a genuine Party within the Republican Party complete with their own funding mechanisms. Again, this can be good – they can function as the conscience of a waffley Republican Party.

After more than five years of constant disappointment and witnessing hundreds of destructive policies  forced upon us the patriot’s reactions to these self-indulgent politicians is a call from Col. Riley to Operation American Spring (OAS).  Like the response to the beginnings of the Tea Party movement OAS is being ignored by the media, the Beltway and also the uprooted Tea Party groups. A strange and unexplainable reaction has come from Glenn Beck who had originally been a whistle blower and go-to individual during the birth of the Tea Party movement. He was fearless. He was bold. “Was” is the operative word. He has become the very thing he warned us against. He is not alone in this.

Unlike the Tea Party, OAS is demanding this president and his administration be removed. This is a reasonable demand in consideration of the many laws this administration has ignored and continues to ignore. It is reasonable because the representatives to whom we gave our trust in 2010 have broken that trust and broken their oath’s of office to protect this sovereign nation and her people. They have allowed and joined in with this administration to continually and strategically ignore the Constitution and behave in a completely lawless manner.

The Patriots on the ground in Washington DC, since May 16, 2014, are woven of the same patriotic fabric however, one day rallies is not the chosen path of OAS. Their plan is to remain until their demands are met. This purpose driven, grassroots movement has taken the only Constitutional option left for the people to take back our Republic. Without taking this next step we risk, once again, being seen but not heard.

The large Tea Party organizations have become an extension of the Republican Party along with many of the smaller local groups who participate at the local levels. The true Tea Party autonomy of the 2010 election season is nowhere to be found these days. It is still alive in the OAS. In the beginning of the Tea Party movement politicians were not allowed to speak at rallies so our autonomy and “Don’t Tread On Me” convictions would not be diluted, now politicians are invited in.

Clearly the next step in securing our Republic will come from the people involved in OAS. Tea Parties were contacted to participate, however those Tea Party organizations refused to be a part of this. Meanwhile the concerns we had in 2009 have yet to be addressed and the deceit continues unanswered and growing at an alarming rate. We are on the edge of losing our Republic. Politics is fine and necessary but citizen involvement to keep politicians honest is even finer and more necessary. Time is running short.

Both groups are needed. Both groups are necessary. If the OAS manages to pull our Republic back from the rubble it will be because of these citizens and those who support them and their cause because, in truth, it’s America’s cause. Keeping the politicians and the Tea Party activists honest can only be accomplished by the everyday, God fearing, citizens whose respect for their  individual freedoms inoculates them from the allure of political power. There is nothing so distasteful and threatening as are dishonest politicians to freedom-loving American citizens. These are the heart & soul of our Republic.  Shame on those who turn their backs on their fellow Americans and mock these OAS participants.  Memories appear to be conveniently short.

The best place I have found to keep up with the OAS Patriots is right HERE.

CALIFORNIANS !! GET OFF YOUR COLLECTIVE BEHINDS !!

Donnelly Bus

For the first time since Reagan we Californians have the incredible opportunity to place a constitutionally directed, freedom respecting candidate, Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, in the Governor’s seat of our beautiful State of California.

DO NOT allow this opportunity to be lost because you don’t believe you need to contribute dollars and personal support to his campaign.  Tim Donnelly has served, since December 2012, as a member of the California State Assembly in the 33rd District and knows first-hand the devastating effects of liberal governance. You can review his work To-Stop-the-Downward-Trend by viewing his bills and voting record here,

If you are truly concerned about the direction our State has been on under Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown then you must do everything you can to get Tim Donnelly elected and into the Governor’s office. The Primaries are June 3, 2014. We have one more month to secure Tim’s nomination – There is NO time to dilly-dally.

Does anyone really want a 4th term of Jerry Brown? A 4th term!! Does anyone reading this really want a RINO, supported by the Old Guard GOP, to be Governor? Read about the latest GOP RINO offering here; Neel Who? and here; GOP Hopeful

We have an option this time, an opportunity to end the regressive social, environmental and economic policies of the Democrats under Jerry Brown who picked up where the weak-willed Arnold Schwarzenegger left off AND we can vote in a Constitution respecting, free-market advocate who believes in liberty and will unbridle the opportunities that this Golden State has in great abundance.

Patriot not Politician is NOT just a campaign slogan – It is an affirmation.  I’m not asking my fellow California citizens to contribute dollars and support – I’m telling you to offer dollars and support or forever hold your complaints to yourselves. Good candidates need support from good people.

If you don’t intend to financially & personally support a great candidate then stop your whining and complaining on Facebook & Twitter and to your neighbors and friends. Go home and kindly padlock yourselves inside. Allow those of us who are working to make a profound and successful difference have the time and space you are currently wasting. California Dreamin’ is for dreamers with a strong California to dream in, we need a reality check because right now an awful lot of people are only dreamin’ about getting out of here instead of dreamin’ about what they can accomplish here.

I will expect those of you who refuse to add one smidgen of support toward a positive solution to practice the following;

  • Smile broadly when taxes & fees are raised on everything from shoes to cell phones & cable TV,
  • Sing hallelujah at the top of your lungs as gasoline prices continue to soar,
  • Dance the jig when property taxes go up (this will affect renters too),
  • Worship at the altar of CARB as they shut down the trucking industry in California,
  • Party hearty with the EPA when you can’t find local produce due to Jerry Brown and his fellow Dems shutting off the water to our valley farmers,
  • Warble like a song bird as unemployment figures go through the roof due to all the above and more,
  • Croon at the font of diversity when your children are subjected to all sorts of perversions in their school class rooms and bathrooms!!

This State may not see another decent individual who would even attempt a run at the Governor’s seat for many years or most likely decades. Fact is, we in California don’t have years, much less decades, to turn our State around. Get on board with the solution – His name is Tim Donnelly and he is a Patriot not a Politician. Got it? Good. Now show your support. Together we CAN do this.

Rand Paul Schools the Patriots

We The People, we Americans, began the Tea Party movement without help, aid or advice from politicians and we blossomed despite their wayward antics to co-opt us and their nasty rhetoric when we proved not to be pushovers. Innumerable hours have been spent studying, attending lectures, straining our eyes into the wee hours reading material off the internet, organizing, communicating, attending meetings and flat out rolling up our sleeves. Our efforts, which have included revamping our lives in many cases, has all been done not for money or prestige but for our country whose founding principles we embrace.

Was this 5th Anniversary celebrating an historical grassroots movement not an occasion to congratulate the Tea Party for their successes both in election outcomes and in the numerous effective organizations that have grown from it? Was this not an opportune time to say “thank you for fighting the good fight”? How about a pep talk for the patriots, a simple attaboy & girl. No, instead he focused on one comment from one individual whose sin was exercising his Constitutionally protected freedom of speech. Isn’t that something Sen. Paul should protect & defend?

He further stated; “There are times, and I don’t think it is our movement, but there are times when people are using language that shouldn’t be used.”  If it was not “our movement” (of which he obviously wants to be considered a member), then why did he bring it up in this venue? He went on; “I recently criticized someone for using some of that language, and I’m not going to bring it up (he just did, again), but I will say that we can disagree with the president without calling him names.” .

To conclude he added “When we present our message, if we want a bigger crowd … our message has to be … one of optimism, one of inclusiveness, one of growth.” The Tea Party movement has conducted themselves with class and restraint hundreds of times over these past 5 years. From rallies to Congressional hearings we have presented our message with knowledge and courage.  From precinct walking to 2Million Bikers to DC our cause, our message, has always been accomplished with a singleness of purpose and a willingness to work together. Dozens of conservative candidates, including Sen. Paul, are now elected officials. Surely he hasn’t forgotten who got him where he is.  The grassroots is growing and will continue to grow with or without Sen. Paul. However, he and the rest of government cannot continue without the support of the people.

I am not a politician and I do not like being schooled by politicians. I am an informed American citizen and I see a distinct change in his message and not for the better. Last year at CPAC when speaking to a packed room of conservatives, Rand Paul, exercising his free speech, called the Obama administration “completely out of control.”  Has anything changed since in this administration?  No, in fact it has gotten further “out of control”.

At this point in time, at that 5th Anniversary venue, Sen. Paul’s decision to school a captive audience of Patriots was wholly inappropriate, entirely off base and ridiculously arrogant.

By the way, where is the Rand Paul who gave this speech? http://youtu.be/4fIQT6K8DuE

Happy 5th Anniversary Tea Party – Long Live This Free Nation !

TIME TO APPLY KING SOLOMON’S WISDOM – 1Kings 3:16-28

One of our most well known Biblical stories is that of King Solomon’s judgement on the two women who both claimed to be the real mother of one child. The women lived in the same house and both had baby sons but one had accidentally suffocated her own son while sleeping and then switched the two boys claiming the living child was hers.

After hearing the women present their cases as to who was indeed the mother he applied a strategy to test a mother’s love by threatening to split the baby in half, offering one half to each woman. Upon hearing this terrible verdict, the boy’s true mother cried out, “Please, My Lord, give her the live child—do not kill him!” However, the false mother exclaimed, “It shall be neither mine nor yours—divide it!” It was at that moment that King Solomon was certain who the real mother was. The true mother’s instincts were to protect her child at any cost, even to giving up her son.

I and my fellow Patriots are equally as prepared to give the oval office to the “other” candidate rather than watch our beloved country be split in two and die. We don’t want two halves of a dead country – we want one whole and healthy country because we love her. The Pretenders’ to Patriotism will allow the country to be divided and will even go so far as to demand it be divided. These are not real Patriots.

If we apply this wise King’s wisdom to determine who the real Patriots are in this country we will have an easy task. Patriots will not take a pass on this November election nor will they write-in their personal choice.  The Patriots will show up at the polls and vote for the nominee – not our personal choice who has no chance of winning. We will do this to save the life of our country, to keep her whole.

What prevents the Pretenders’ from seeing the true picture is their willful insistence to ignore a reality that does not coincide with their will. Like the willful, jealous woman in King Solomon’s time they only pretend to be the real Patriots, they insist that it is better to split the country so no one wins and allow the country to die.  They will bring calamity upon themselves, the rest of the country and indeed the world without any regard to the end result.

Whatever it takes to save this Republic the true Patriots’ will do. Likewise, the Patriotic candidates will step aside and rally for the nominee. They will call on their supporters to do the same especially when it is apparent that without that unification they put their country, which they claim to love, in grave peril.

Let us hope that these citizens will, in the end, make the right decision, the Patriotic decision, the wise decision. In this way we will know who the real Patriots are and who are just pretenders who offer only a false claim.

Jewish interpretation

According to the Midrash, the two women were sisters-in-law, both of whom had borne sons, and whose husbands had died. The baby was actually the lying woman’s nephew. Therefore, when Solomon suggested that the infant be split in half, the lying woman, jealous of her nephew and sister-in-law, agreed. Thus was Solomon able to know who the real mother was.
