I was there!!

The March in Washington

A defining experience for a Charleston citizen

The following is an e mail that was sent to me and others by Marsha Baxter. She travelled to Washington for the event on a Charleston Tea Party bus and participated in the march. Her letter says it all. Editor

How does one describe a life defining moment… I never believed that I could be involved in such an experience, I had allowed myself to become trusting and complacent, willing to allow others to be the watchdog and voice that should have been me. I have trusted network news to be the informant of issues in our Congress; misplaced trust… I have learned the lesson.
I have been surprising myself of late. Never in my 60 years have I become so awake to the actions of our Congress and the direction they are taking this nation. Their actions, self-interests and corruption are taking this great nation down and we must stop the death spiral. I am still defining how I can participate in this counter-activity, I know I have to study and read and listen to the overwhelming evidence and then I must make my voice heard, I must stand together to protect our liberty. The Tea Party Movement appears to be my choice.
I rode to DC this past weekend with a bus load of professionals, not radicals, nor extremists, etc. but professionals from every career. Physicians, pastors, engineers, state Senator, teachers, contractors, etc.. Our only agenda was to stand and be recognized as disagreeing with our nation’s leadership. The issues were many, but we were not special interest at all. I wish I had the vocabulary to express the very full heart, the sense of pride I felt participating; just being on the bus was an education. Then standing in Freedom Square literally crammed in together like sardines in a can and singing our Nation’s songs and facing the American Flag with our hands over our hearts.. Tears streaming and hearts full of pride, voices choked from emotion… The March was started 30-45 minutes earlier then planned because our numbers were so large, the DC police was concerned for safety, etc. The walk was slow and deliberate and respectful. We were in awe of the massive buildings, the monuments, the White House and the Capital, HUGE… and we were there, WE WERE THERE, exercising our God given right to make our voices heard, standing on hollowed ground given to us by our Nation’s founders, the signers of the Declaration of Independence, the authors of our Constitution and fought to protect by our Nation’s military. So many American hero’s… So many people from every walk of life, united in the conviction that we must make our voices heard, we must take back our nation, we must stop our President and Congress.
And the chants, the voices raised united… “We love Joe”; “You Lie”; “Joe for President”; “Flip the House” and many more… Believe me a common theme throughout this entire experience was to vote out every existing Rep, Senator and President as they come up for re-election. This Grass Roots Movement will be one to be reckoned with since we are founded on our Bill of Rights, our Constitution, our Freedom, our Liberty .
A revelation was the disappointment in our media and their accurate coverage of this historic event.. Our numbers were huge and grew all day as people rushed to get to some portion of the event, whatever their schedules allowed.. Stories abounded about our numbers, about buses stopped at the bridges and not allowed in because of space constraints in parking these huge vehicles… Why does our media down-play reality?? Who truly owns our media and the coverage they report? Where is our voice?? NOT IN OUR MEDIA!! Fox had the most coverage and is appreciated. Perhaps our media has become too complacent and mainstreamed to realize the significance of this event.
But one stand-out point that must not be missed, we were not individuals at this march, each one of us was representing hundreds if not thousands of folks back home that could not attend for various reasons…This Grass-Roots movement is huge, this Silent Majority is silent no more…
My heart is full, my cup runneth over from this monumental event and I WAS THERE! I stood up!! I took action… I took my seat on the bus… A sense of pride fills my heart and a search for answers, tickles my brain. Complacency is a disease; I plan to cure in myself. I will research and study and work to expose the fraud, the theft, the lies. And I will be in the background observing and reporting to those politicians that have the intelligence, the integrity and the conviction to get our country back on the right path identified by our Founders, our Forbearers’…
This event has become one of my life-defining moments. I pray I can keep the momentum. I must.

President to Address the Children

Obama to address all U.S. School Children on September 8, 2009 Slide Show

Sounds rather ominous, doesn’t it?
Well, frankly, if this was anyone but Barack Obama, I wouldn’t give it a second thought, although, one has to wonder what the reaction would be if this was George W Bush or Sarah Palin doing this instead of the “Dear Leader.”
On September 8, Barack Obama will address every school kid in America, reason number 216 to home school. Obama has already sent out an agenda for the teachers to follow.
President Obama’s Address to Students Across America September 8, 2009
Again, on the surface, not all that ominous, but this is Barack Obama we are talking about here, a committed communist who was mentored from the tender age of 10 years old by communist Frank Marshall Davis. This is Barack Obama who, in his books, says he sought our Marxist radicals in college as well as the Marxist professors. Those were his people.
This is a guy who has surrounded himself with communist radicals all throughout his adult life. From violent terrorists like Bill Ayers, to the current group of “advisers” like Van Jones, Mark Lloyd, Cass Sunstein, Dr Ezeikiel Emanuel, and others. All of this bunch have a few things in common. They are all self described communists and they all absolutely hate America in her current form.
Now another troubling thing about this deal, is people like terrorist Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, a convicted felon, are considered “respected intellectuals” in academia. They are held up examples of the way it should be.
Ayers and Obama worked very closely on two “educational foundations” where they doled out millions of dollars to left wing subversive groups like ACORN, for “education.”
Dr. Stanley Kurtz, a Senior Fellow at the Ethics & Public Policy Center, has written extensively about this, and if you want to understand this situation better, click here.
We know Obama spent his early career at ACORN training the rent-a-mobs in the finer art of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” a communist manifesto for “community organizing”, and a book Alinsky dedicated to Lucifer (the devil) who he called “the first radical.”
So it is not any stretch to say that Barack Obama is a communist and a true believer. Everything this guy has done points to his attempt to set up a permanent communist state here in America, replacing our Representative Republic.
Using the youth of a nation, polluting their minds with communist and socialist ideas is a proven tactic, that works and works well. Look at groups like PETA and the enviro-crazies. They work overtime trying to influence your children. They want your children to put pressure on you to change your ways.
How many times have your kids worn you out about global warming?
Not only are the kids bombarded with propaganda at school but even children’s cartoons are full of it. The great shows we grew up with, like “Bugs Bunny” and “Tom and Jerry”, have been replaced with “Captain Planet!” Almost all children's programming has a heavy dose of left wing ideology intermingled throughout their story lines.
Nothing wrong with caring about the earth, or anything else, but let kids be kids, they will be worrying about life soon enough!
The communists won’t let your kids alone though. They understand this is the most effective way to change society. The communist is patient. They have been trying to take over America for 100 years. They understand that we all die at some point, and the old ideas can be left to die out as well, replaced with their idea of society.
This, is a great time to remind folks of what Ronald Reagan had to say about this:
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” – Ronald Reagan
Words to live by, for sure.
In North Korea school children are taught about the “Dear Leader.” They sing songs of praise.

Pasadena Patriots launches new website

Its a good one, worth visiting.

Diane Watson praises Fidel, calls you racist

Congressman Diane Watson is a despicable human being. Not only is she implying patriotic Americans are racist, but she is also praising a murderer like Fidel Castro.

Its not because Obama is Black Diane that we want him to fail. Its because of his socialist/marxist agenda.

Statement on the passing of Senator Edward Kennedy

Statement on the Passing of Senator Edward Kennedy

Human Life International’s Statement on the Passing of Senator Edward Kennedy
August 29th, 2009 by Fr. Thomas Euteneuer

We must, as a matter of precept, pray for the salvation of heretical Catholics like Senator Edward Kennedy, but we do not have to praise him let alone extol him with the full honors of a public Catholic funeral and all the adulation that attends such an event. There was very little about Ted Kennedy’s life that deserves admiration from a spiritual or moral point of view. He was probably the worst example of a Catholic statesman that one can think of. When all is said and done, he has distorted the concept of what it means to be a Catholic in public life more than anyone else in leadership today.

Obviously we don’t know the state of Senator Edward Kennedy’s soul upon death. We don’t pretend to. We are told by the family that he had the opportunity to confess his sins before a priest, and his priest has said publicly he was "at peace" when he died. For that we are grateful. But it is one thing to confess one’s sins and for these matters to be kept, rightfully, private. It is another thing entirely for one who so consistently and publicly advocated for the destruction of unborn human beings to depart the stage without a public repudiation of these views, a public confession, as it were.

It is up to God to judge Senator Kennedy’s soul. We, as rational persons, must judge his actions, and his actions were not at all in line with one who values and carefully applies Church teaching on weighty matters. Ted Kennedy’s positions on a variety of issues have been a grave scandal for decades, and to honor this "catholic" champion of the culture of death with a Catholic funeral is unjust to those who have actually paid the price of fidelity. We now find out that President Obama will eulogize the Senator at his funeral, an indignity which, following on the heels of the Notre Dame fiasco, leaves faithful Catholics feeling sullied, desecrated and dehumanized by men who seem to look for opportunities to slap the Church in the face and do so with impunity simply because they have positions of power.

It is not enough for Kennedy to have been a "great guy behind the scenes" as we have seen him referred to even by his political opponents. It is also not praiseworthy to put a Catholic rhetorical veneer on his leftist politics that did nothing to advance true justice as the Church sees it or to advance the peace of Christ in this world. Every indication of Senator Kennedy’s career, every public appearance, every sound bite showed an acerbic, divisive and partisan political hack for whom party politics were much more infallible than Church doctrines. Whatever one’s political affiliation, if one is only "Catholic" to the extent that his faith rhymes with his party line, then his Catholicism is a fraud.

As the Scriptures remind us, there is a time for everything under the sun. This, now, is the time for honesty about our Faith and about those who are called to express it in the public forum. If we do not remind ourselves of the necessity of public confession for public sins such as Senator Kennedy was guilty of, then we are negligent in our embrace of the Faith and we are part of the problem. As Pope Benedict has reminded us recently, charity without truth can easily become mere sentimentality, and we must not fall into that error. A Catholic show of charity for the family must not eclipse the truth that is required of all with eyes to see and ears to hear.

Senator Kennedy needs to be sent to the afterlife with a private, family-only funeral and the prayers of the Church for the salvation of his immortal soul. He will not be missed by the unborn who he betrayed time and time again, nor by the rest of us who are laboring to undo the scandalous example of Catholicism that he gave to three generations of Americans.
