Greg Abbott: A New Hero?

April 23, 2014 by  
Filed under Hot Topics

Do we have a new hero in the making? Let’s hope so because our country will not survive without real courage.

“I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.”

Does Obama Lie And Is It OK?

April 22, 2014 by  
Filed under Hot Topics

So we have a populace  the majority of which believe that Obama lies to the citizens most of the time and yet the same populace keeps his APPROVAL rating anywhere from 50% to 55% at any particular time. This article thinks we need to study why. No need for expensive data gathering and analysis. The answer is simple. The majority of our citizens are now thieves who accept as righteous the taking of one’s productive effort to give to one who does not produce. Then there are the those who are wealthy enough to indulge in the complacency that allows institutionalized theft to flourish. And then there is the very small minority who are fighting for integrity and individual freedom. Which kind of citizen are you?

“Not only does this mean that 61% believe Obama to be a habitual liar, with most  of those believing that most of what comes from his mouth is a lie; it also  means that 81% think he has lied as president about important matters at least  occasionally.”

“But this latest Fox poll found that Obama’s approval fell to 51% from the  53%-55% range of Fox’s seven previous polls.”

NON Affordable Care Act

April 21, 2014 by  
Filed under Economy, Healthcare, Hot Topics

As our health care insanity continues there will be more and more draconian cuts to physicians’ reimbursements.  Specialty medicine will decline at an ever escalating pace as physicians see no reward for the hard work and devotion required to become specialized caregivers. Fewer and fewer hospitals will be able to withstand the onslaught of federal audits for so called “fraudulent” payment practices.  The delivery of medical care is already overburdened as the demand grows for “free” and “cheap” care. This article describes why these consequences will occur as we skip down the rosy path of ”guaranteed’ health care.

“Earlier this month there was tremendous press attention to new data indicating that enrollment in the Affordable Care Act (ACA)’s health insurance exchanges had surpassed 7 million.”

“Our national discussion, however, is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come.”

SPRINGS & AQUIFER PROTECTION ACT ON TUESDAY’S AGENDA


Last Friday, Good Friday, the agenda for the next Senate Appropriations Committee was posted, including CS/CS/SB 1576 (The Springs and Aquifer Protection Act) as an agenda item.The bill is set to be heard Tuesday, April 22.  The committee meets at 9 am.While CPR has expressed support to protect Florida water and has offered alternative legislation, the bill continues to move forward with serious flaws.  As it stands now, the bill threatens private property rights and opens the door to a new and redundant layer of government regulation and control over septic systems.

The bill also lacks a broader and much needed comprehensive approach to addressing Florida’s water issues.  Speaker of the House Will Weatherford and Majority Leader Speaker Steve Crisafulli have expressed their desire to address this issue as a major focus in next year’s legislative session.  However, the Senate continues to push forward.

There are two things you can do to protect your property rights.

First, you can express your opinion to each member of the Senate Appropriations Committee by sending an email and calling their office.  You might send something like this:

 “I am writing to express my disapproval of CS/CS/SB 1576 because it infringes on private property rights, grows government redundancy, eliminates state septic system inspection standards already approved by the legislature, and cripples Florida’s economy with needless prohibitions.  While I support protecting Florida water, I reject the misguided and expensive way in which this bill proposes to address this issue.  I support a more comprehensive approach that addresses both water quality and water quantity based on real-world scientific data.  I encourage you to postpone addressing this issue until next year when it can be adequately debated and involve all stakeholders and their concerns.”

Senate Appropriations Committee members are (or visit www.flsenate.gov):

Chair: Senator Joe Negron (R)
Vice Chair: Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto (R)

Second, you can express your opinion to Speaker Weatherford, Majority Leader Crisafulli and Speaker Pro-tempore Marti Coley.  You might send something like this:“While I support protecting Florida water, I reject the misguided and expensive way in which HB 1313 proposes to address this issue.  I support a more comprehensive approach that addresses both water quality and water quantity based on real-world scientific data.  I encourage you to postpone addressing this issue until next year when it can be adequately debated and involve all stakeholders and their concerns. It infringes on private property rights, grows government redundancy, eliminates state septic system inspection standards already approved by the legislature, and cripples Florida’s economy with needless prohibitions.   I encourage you to stand firm on your intent to address this issue next year when it can be adequately debated, be based on real-world scientific data, and involve all stakeholders and their concerns.”

Their addresses are (or visit: www.myfloridahouse.gov):

Will.Weatherford@myfloridahouse.gov
Steve.crisafulli@myfloridahouse.gov
Marti.coley@myfloridahouse.gov

It is interesting to note environmental groups had prior knowledge and announced to their members the bill would be on the Senate Appropriations agenda last Thursday morning,  nearly 24 hours before the Committee agenda was publically posted Friday.  They told their members to contact committee members and the House leadership.

So, the time for action is today; tomorrow will be too late.

Thank you.

Dan Peterson, Coalition for Property Rights

“The truth may hurt, but is not mean, as my friend Andrew Breitbart would say.  The truth is the major challengers to incumbent Republican Senators — Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas, and Chris McDaniel in Mississippi — are behind.

This is not to say they cannot win.  I believe they can.  But, this is to say that for them to win, their campaigns and our efforts must be kicked into high gear.

Matt Bevin, Milton Wolf, and Chris McDaniel are the best men for the Senate in their respective states.  They are competent.  They are conservative.  They can beat the Democrats in the general election in their states.  The establishment was never going to go away without a fight.  The establishment would never go easy.  In fact, the establishment is proving yet again it’d rather be in the minority than be out of power all together.”

Washington Republicans Were Never Reaganites

April 15, 2014 by  
Filed under Hot Topics

From Erick Erickson, RedState.com

“But the problem is and has always been government — not just the wrong party in charge of it.  Republicans in Washington were never the Party of Reagan.  Every nominee of the party since Reagan, save John McCain, was against Reagan in 1980.  The party has always has patrician, paternalist instincts.  Those instincts now run toward their donors, whose money they think can preserve their power.  That power, and the ability to use government for their own ends, is precious to them.

Instead of doing what is right for main street, the party is inclined to do what is right to its top donors.  But the donors and activists all get one vote each.  There are more of us than them.

We must keep up the fight in the primaries.  We must continue replacing bad Republicans with better Republicans.”

Revolution Brewing In Nevada

April 11, 2014 by  
Filed under Hot Topics

Read the article and spread the word. Send emails. Use Facebook and Twitter. Get the word out that a growing band of Americans are standing against an overreaching and tyrannical Federal government.

“It’s seen by some as the latest battle over state and federal land rights in a state with deep roots in those disputes, including the Sagebrush Rebellion of the 1970s and ’80s. Nevada, where various federal agencies manage or control more than 80 percent of the land, is among several Western states where ranchers have challenged federal land ownership.

The current showdown pits Bundy’s claims of ancestral rights to graze his cows on open range against federal claims that the cattle are trespassing on arid and fragile habitat of the endangered desert tortoise. Bundy has said he owns about 500 branded cattle on the range and claims the other 400 targeted for roundup are his, too.”

“It looks like tensions will rise even further because Americans have had enough.

Militias have been mobilised. It’s going to get real.
Bundy may be facing down a bunch of armed federal thugs but he’s  going to be backed up by militia members from across the country.
This is the day that Patriots have been talking about and training for. They will not stand down. CBS reports that militias from Texas, Montana, Utah, New Hampshire, and Florida  will be standing with Bundy against the Bureau of Land Management.
If you aren’t a combatant, this doesn’t mean that you can’t  participate in this revolt against tyranny. This is a call to action.
Here are the pertinent email addresses and phone numbers:”

Obama Knows Exactly What He’s Doing

April 10, 2014 by  
Filed under Hot Topics

Ever since Obama and his minions burst into the political landscape it has been extremely clear that he wants America destroyed. I get so tired of the mainstream, supposedly conservative pundits saying that he is incompetent. He is exactly the opposite. If you need proof of his success just look around. See any growth? Any prosperity? Any increase in your personal liberty? How about your kids. See any school curriculum that teaches the Constitution? See an abundance of opportunity? And I might add that he is also one of the most honest Presidents this country has ever had. He stated over and over again that he would transform America but no one cared. He has been very open about ruling with his pen and phone but no one will stop him. People in the Tea Party know the truth. And unless our politics prevail get ready for much darker days ahead.

“Chronic deficits, massive increases in the national debt, and persistent  joblessness are part of President Obama’s plan for the “transformation” of  America. You read that right:  they are not a problem, but rather necessities as part of a broader plan to make  America conform to their notion of ‘fairness.’ That America will be much poorer  overall and that a far greater percentage of her people dependent on the  government, which is a success in their eyes.”

“ An America that is ‘fair’ is one that is manifestly poorer; a country that has  replaced growth and prosperity with the iron hands of state power, taxes, and  dependence.”

2016: Listen Up Republican Establishment

April 10, 2014 by  
Filed under Hot Topics

Judson Phillips, The Washington Times:

“What do you call a team that has managed to lose consistently for the last 26  years? You would call them the Republican Establishment.”

“Now, the same group that has done so well in the last 30 years wants Jeb Bush  to be the Republican nominee in 2016. The political establishment media has been almost giddy with reports that  big-name Republican insiders and financiers want to draft Bush to run in 2016. Nominating Jeb Bush is about as bright as nominating John  McCain or Mitt Romney. But then again,  the people responsible for those decisions want Bush. One result will be the same.”

“If Jeb Bush is nominated, he will lose. Conservatives will not vote for him.”

“But when Mitt Romney won (the nomination) in 2012,  conservative voters stayed home. 2016 will be a completely different story. Among conservatives there is already talk of a third party. The problem third  parties have had in the past is either they had no traction or they nominated  unelectable candidates.

2016 could change that.

If the Republican Establishment nominates Jeb Bush, conservative voters will  bolt. At best, conservatives will stay home, and the worst case scenario for the  GOP is that there is an attractive  conservative who is running as an independent or a third-party candidate. The message for the Establishment is simple: Nominate Jeb Bush and  conservatives kiss the GOP goodbye. The last time the GOP ran a real  conservative, Ronald Reagan won with two  landslide victories and today is the most revered American president except for  George Washington”

This conference is focused on the November election including the US  Senate, US Congress and Florida races as well as key legislative issues.  Our goal is to share information on tools, organizations, and individuals that are available to maximize our impact during this election and legislative cycle. Below is a sample of our featured speakers.

The free of charge TTPN sponsored Victory For America Conference is this weekend April 11 and 12 at 9:00 AM. The conference will be held at the Jackie Taylor Building, 128 SW Birley Ave., Lake City, FL 32024.  CLICK HERE to view the Conference Schedule and Lodging information. Please make your conference reservation by emailing Ttpnrsvp@theteapartynetwork.org. Please include the names of the attendees and which organization you are affiliated with.

Lunch will be provided to you on both Friday and Saturday at the conference (no charge!) So that we will have an accurate count, all you have to do is RSVP that you will be joining us for lunch on both days. Also, because Friday the 11th is a Lenten Friday, please let us know if you need a non-meat option for that day. CLICK HERE if you would like to learn more about complementary lunches at the conference.

SPEAKERS:

Michael Farris is a premier expert on Constitutional government and a lawyer leading the Convention of States movement. Article V – Convention of States is one of the most contested topics in the patriot movement. In our effort to bring you the best of the best, the TTPN Steering Committee wanted to invite the most reputable speakers on this important topic. Because TTPN does not endorse either viewpoint, it was our goal to bring experts that present the issue in an effort for everyone to gain a better understanding. Mr. Farris will present his views and allow plenty of time for Q&A concerning both sides of the argument. This is a tremendous opportunity for us.

Gary Berntsen  is the Southeast Regional Director of Concerned Veterans For America (CV4A) and a decorated CIA Officer. In his speech he will share some of his experiences, along with his views on our national and international situations. Concerned Veterans for America is a grassroots organization for veterans and is reaching out to tea party groups across the nation. Their grassroots organizing played an important part in the victory of David Jolly over Alex Sink in the District 13 Congressional Special Election.

Dan Peterson.  Dan and his organization, Coalition For Property Rights, has been working with our legislators in Tallahassee to protect our property rights. Every year legislation is introduced that will rob us this fundamental right. This year, there is a bill entitled the Florida Springs and Aquifer Act that will set up a “Responsible Management Entity”  to control your septic tanks in the name of protecting the springs. Dan will update us with the latest information on this and other bills in the Florida legislature that threaten our property rights.

Paul Henry. Paul has been working tirelessly for years collecting data and working with legislators to put an end to the unconstitutional law that presumes you are guilty of running a red light without an opportunity to defend yourself in a court of law. Real ID, implemented by the state of Florida through our drivers licenses, is another unconstitutional assault on our liberty requiring us to provide personal information for the privilege of driving a car.  Paul will provide us the latest update on the bills in the legislature to halt these practices as well as other bills being followed by Liberty First Network.
