February 27, 2014: Mark Levin, aka The Great One, was the keynote speaker at today’s event celebrating the fifth anniversary Tea Party movement. Levin both thanked and congratulated those of us in this fight to regain our lost liberties, and he encouraged and implored us to keep up the struggle.
As you read these excerpts from Mark’s speech and watch this moving video, you will see that true conservatives in the sixties and seventies faced the same struggles with the so-called establishment, that tea party and other true conservatives face today. Stand tall my fellow warriors, he’s speaking of you!
“…The Tea Party movement is the only thing left that stands between what remains of our Republic and the tyranny of runaway government. And I say this from the bottom of my heart and my soul, and I thank you. You are the citizens from all walks of life and from every corner of the country, who possess the spirit and enthusiasm of the Founding Fathers, proclaim the principles of individual liberty and unalienable rights as set forth in our Declaration, and insist on the Federal Government’s compliance with the Constitution’s limits. You are astutely aware of the peril of the moment, and all that is at stake. And for this, you are smeared, and attacked by the ruling class, Democrats and Republicans alike, by the media from the New York Slimes to the Wall Street Journal, and countless others who are dragging this nation into the abyss. And I know that at times you wonder if we will be able to reverse course, you wonder if it’s all worth it, you wonder if you should live quiet lives among friends and tend to your own needs. But I also know you’re Americans and you cannot be idle and you will not be silenced while a relative handful of self-aggrandizing masterminds seek to lord over you and your fellow citizens. You will not let your country fail…”
“…You see Ronald Reagan was not part of the establishment, he was an outsider. And like you and so many others throughout history, he had the courage to stand up and be counted. And for this, also like you, Reagan and his supporters were disparaged and dismissed by the same ruling class…”
Levin then recited this quote from George Will, 1974:
“…Reagan is 63 and he looks it. His hair is so remarkably free of gray, but around the mouth and neck, he looks like an old man. He has never demonstrated substantial national appeal. His hardcore support today consists primarily of the Kamikaze Conservatives who thought the 1960 Goldwater campaign was jolly fun. And there is reason to doubt that Reagan is well suited to appeal to the electorate that just produced a Democratic landslide…”
I never thought I would be saying this but: How sad that we must fight not for new freedoms, nor to rise to new heights, but to maintain what we already have; and to reclaim what we once had, but lost. - ADB
Young Republican official: Tea Party is full of drooling, senile angry bullies who are ‘mad at everything’; Update: Tweets deleted.
Nothing gets establishment GOPers more animated than the chance to trash conservatives who actually want to take back the country from socialist statists, rather than just manage the decay and benefit from crony capitalism. The latest kerfuffle between those who lovingly embrace the status quo and the “radical” Tea Party began with a debate between Breitbart.com writer Brandon Darby and Sen. John McCain campaign consultant John Weaver, who orchestrated such resounding conservative victories as John McCain 2000 and John McCain 2008. Read more at: Michelle Malkin’s twitchy.com.
A man videotaping Baltimore County police as they arrested two people was approached by at least two different officers and not only angrily threatened with arrest, but told he had no rights.
The man asked the officers several times what he was doing wrong. When he tried to remind them “I have my rights,” things quickly went downhill, with one angry cop responding: “You just lost them.” continue reading at: ijreview.com.
SHERWOOD, Ore. — A trash collector in Oregon is getting a lot of attention after a neighbor on his route witnessed his simple gesture of respect and kindness.
Jeremy Fischer recently spotted something he said was a lot more important that a piece of trash – an American flag blown off its pole.
So Fischer carefully folded the flag back up in a Military fashion and placed it on a post.
“There’s a lot of sacrifice, a lot of hope, a lot of other stuff that is the American flag. I figured since so many people have died for that the least I could do was pick it up,” Fischer said.
Fischer knows garbage truck cameras are always rolling, but he never told anybody about this and he didn’t know Nancy Neet was watching. Read more at: myfox8.com.
One in Four Americans Unaware that Earth Circles Sun
So, if twenty six percent of the American population doesn’t know that the earth revolves around the sun, then how can we expect them to make intelligent decisions at the polls? I think that’s a no-brainer – literally! From Breitbart.com:
(AFP)—Americans are enthusiastic about the promise of science but lack basic knowledge of it, with one in four unaware that the Earth revolves around the Sun, said a poll out Friday.
The survey included more than 2,200 people in the United States and was conducted by the National Science Foundation.
Nine questions about physical and biological science were on the quiz, and the average score — 6.5 correct — was barely a passing grade.
Just 74 percent of respondents knew that the Earth revolved around the Sun, according to the results released at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago. Continue reading at: breitbart.com.
From Trevor Louden’s New Zeal blog:
Enslavement Of America – Best Speech Ever By Communism Escapee (Video) – Wake Up America:
At a public hearing on proposed gun control legislation, Manuel Martinez, a man who escaped Cuba in 1962 after opposing Fidel Castro and being imprisoned for it, blasts Oregon gun control lawmakers in an impassioned speech that only someone that has lived through communism and Marxism, only someone that watched innocent men, women and children murdered by their own government, only someone that fought against his whole country being enslaved by a dictator, can give.
“They come here in those dog and pony show and cry that their going to protect people. You’re going to protect nobody! I want to know what is behind it? Do you know what is behind the problem we have in this country with it’s Marxism,” Martinez said.
He continues, saying “Marxism is not coming, Marxism is here! Marxism has been in this country for quite a while now. And the politicians allow that because they are ignorant or they’re part of the plot!”
“Don’t sell me this. A very powerful man tried to sell me this 50-something years ago, I didn’t buy it, do you think I am going to buy it now after pushing 80 years?” Martinez said. “This is Marxism, plain and clear.”
“They put this dog and pony show saying hey, we are going to protect you. No, what they did was enslave a country,” Martinez said. “They destroyed a country the same way that this country is going to be destroyed if we continue in this fashion. This is what you’re selling here!” Martinez said, holding up old communist magazines from Cuba and stating “This is what you selling here!! You are not selling protection! You don’t care about if we die or live! THIS IS WHAT YOU’RE SELLING!!!

“I think your heart is in the right place.”
-Bill O’Reilly to Barack Obama in pre-Super Bowl interview
Do you agree with Bill O’Reilly that Barack Obama’s heart is in the right place?
How does Bill O’Reilly know?
Is it the job of a newsman to judge the hearts of their interview subjects?
What special insight does Bill O’Reilly have into the hearts of his interviewees?
It’s really a shame that we simply don’t have a press in America that understands its proper role as a watchdog on government fraud, waste, abuse and corruption.
Our Founding Fathers enshrined in the First Amendment of the Constitution protections for the free press because they intuitively understood this then brand-new institution would be critical to self-governance and preservation of their new concept of constitutionally limited government.
But the American press has become part of the problem rather than part of the solution.
Fox News, with its marketing promise of a “fair and balanced” approach, while refreshing in comparison with its more statist competitors, is hardly the antidote America needs to preserve liberty.
And liberty is very much in danger today in America. Read more at: wnd.com.

Senator Mike Delivers a response to president Obama’s 2014 State of the Union Address
Here are Senator Lee’s closing remarks: “…So if you’re one of those Americans that big government is leaving behind, if you work hard, play by the rules, and teach your kids to do the same, I want you to know that your family will not be forgotten anymore. This new generation of reformers still has a long way to go to win over our party in Washington. And even further to go to earn your trust. I’m confident that our best days of a nation are ahead of us. Not because of government, but because within America’s diverse society of individuals, families and neighborhoods and churches and businesses and communities, freedom doesn’t mean you’re on your own, freedom means we’re all in this together. I invite you to join us, on the road to a more prosperous America. Together we can create the kind of government we do want, and the kind of nation our children and grandchildren deserve. Thank you very much for your time and good night, God bless.”
