Attention Alachua County voters! Many of you are already aware that Susan Baird, our county commissioner for limited government, is not running for reelection. Once the primaries were over this partisan race narrowed down to a Democrat candidate, Ken Cornell, and a Republican candidate, John Martin. Every county voter can vote for this distract seat! As is our custom Gainesville Tea Party will host a debate for this seat which is certain to reveal the differences between the two candidates and give our citizens another opportunity to get answers about the positions each candidate takes on the important issues. Those of you who have attended in the past know that we are not afraid of asking the tough questions. Let’s keep our tradition of hosting the largest turnout of all the candidates’ forums!
Mark your calendars! Encourage your friends and family to attend!

Thursday night on Fox News, Charles Krauthammer predicted that it would only take “a couple more cases like Mr. Duncan” flying to the United States from West Africa with Ebola for the president to back down from his no travel ban position.
But if Judicial Watch’s sources are correct, Obama’s open door policy for people coming from Ebola infected countries, may creak open a little wider to allow the transfer of non-US citizens infected with the disease into the country for treatment.
It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients. The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.
The plan – which may not even be legal – has been kept from Congress even though it should require the approval of Congress.

From Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jundal:
“Consider the Prevention and Public Health Fund, a new series of annual mandatory appropriations created by Obamacare. Over the past five years, the CDC has received just under $3 billion in transfers from the fund. Yet only 6 percent—$180 million—of that $3 billion went toward building epidemiology and laboratory capacity. Especially given the agency’s postwar roots as the Communicable Disease Center, one would think that “detecting and responding to infectious diseases and other public health threats” warrants a larger funding commitment.
Instead, the Obama administration has focused the CDC on other priorities. While protecting Americans from infectious diseases received only $180 million from the Prevention Fund, the community transformation grant program received nearly three times as much money—$517.3 million over the same five-year period.
The CDC’s website makes clear the objectives of community transformation grants. The program funds neighborhood interventions like “increasing access to healthy foods by supporting local farmers and developing neighborhood grocery stores,” or “promoting improvements in sidewalks and street lighting to make it safe and easy for people to walk and ride bikes.” Bike lanes and farmer’s markets may indeed help a community—but they would do little to combat dangerous diseases like Ebola, SARS or anthrax.”
Makes one wonder who really is behind this website ranking Alexa.com…
“How could every major alternative website that challenges the mainstream, establishment view of Washington and the world be experiencing a drop-off in readership while their counterparts on the other side of the political spectrum are gaining readers? It appears unlikely, yet that’s exactly what happened last month, according to Alexa.com, which measures web traffic and ranks websites from the most popular to the least popular. Alexa rankings are important because they are among a handful of measurement tools used by companies when deciding where to spend their advertising dollars.”
The Drudge Report, WND, Breitbart, Fox News, the Blaze, Newsmax, CNSNEWS, the Daily Caller, Infowars and Natural News are all plunging in popularity, according to Alexa’s rankings. At the same time, pro-government sites like the Daily Kos, ThinkProgress, Media Matters, MSNBC, NPR.org and Democracy Now! are all rising in popularity, according to Alexa.
You have just got to see this video of Rev Jesse Jackson being interviewed by Ben Swann. No matter what Swann asks, the good Rev shows that reality and logic are irrelevant when it comes to getting a point across.
‘Rainbow Coalition’ of Community Organizers Building Kentucky Ground Game to Overcome Grimes’ Gaffes
On Tuesday the big news from Kentucky was that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has pulled all TV ads backing Alison Lundergan Grimes in her challenge to long time Republican incumbent, Sen. Mitch Mconnell. Many have interpreted this move as a sign that the Democrats have conceded this race. However, nothing could be further from the truth as they have been building a ground game by shipping in an army of young, tech savvy community organizers a la Barack Obama, circa 2008:
A Fox News poll released on Wednesday shows incumbent Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) leading Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes by 4 points in the Kentucky U.S. Senate race. The poll was released a day before a huge gaffe by Grimes that NBC’s Chuck Todd says “disqualifies” her from serving in the Senate.
What the polls don’t show is an ambitious Democratic ground game that targets “unlikely” but left-leaning voters and is manned by a “Rainbow Coalition” of young community organizers from elite colleges like New York University, Oberlin College, and Johns Hopkins University which could give Grimes an election day boost not captured in the latest polls.
According to the most recent Federal Election Commission filings, the Kentucky Democratic Party Executive Central Committee had fifty young field organizers on staff as of August 31. Many of these staffers came from out-of-state or are current students or recent graduates of elite out-of-state universities. Read more at breitbart.com.
“Those critics who have been citing Barack Obama’s foreign policy fiascoes and disasters as evidence that he is incompetent may be overlooking the possibility that he has different priorities than the protection of the American people and America’s interests as a nation.”
As part of our commitment to get involved with elections outside of our districts I urge you to get active in candidate Carol Platt’s campaign who is challenging incumbent Alan Grayson for the 9th Congressional District in central Florida. Many of you are aware of the idiocy of Alan Grayson but to refresh your memory or get acquainted with his despicable antics go to http://
Orlando Sentinel Article showing differences on issues – http://touch.orlandosentinel.
From Carol Platt’s campaign:
“Nancy Pelosi has decided to stump for Grayson. The only reason she would be here is that he is vulnerable. Let’s show these people we can make a difference and get the grassroots folks mobilized. We need money but also volunteers to send emails, make calls and walk door-to-door in the District.”

Amendment 1, which allows the State of Florida to use a percentage of tax dollars collected through the payment of documentary stamps required on any land transaction for more environmental property purchases by the state, will be on the ballot on November 4th.
From Daniel Peterson, Executive Director of Coalition for Property Rights:
“The fact is private owners are better stewards of land than government. Government should not be handed $18 billion of taxpayer money to acquire and control land.
The American dream embraces the principle of private citizens owning and using property as a protection against the potential tyranny of the state. Increased government ownership threatens that principle with no guarantees of better land stewardship.”
Mr. Peterson clearly explains all the reasons why citizens should vote NO on Amendment 1.
Amendment 2, which allows for more widespread use of medical marijuana in Florida, is being hotly debated. Until recently the polls seemed to indicate a majority of voters in favor of the initiative but that support appears to be slipping in these final weeks leading up to election day. We have provided this link which may help you decide how you want to vote as this is a social issue, not a fiscal issue.
Amendment 3, which allows for an outgoing Governor to appoint judges for positions that become vacant on inauguration day rather than the incoming Governor, is also being hotly debated. Opponents say that this is a simple power grab for the incumbent party (in this case the Republican party) but the same requirements would exist for any incumbent party no matter which party is in power. Hopefully the following links will help you decide how you want to vote.

“Disgusting that the President is still devoting more time to political fundraising than attending to his greatest responsibility, the protection of Americans.”
“I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” – Revelation 6:8
The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse as named in Revelation are Conquest, War, Famine, and Death.
It is an apt metaphor for what is occurring in America today. Ebola is now raging in several African nations, Liberia, Sierra Leon, Guinea, and Nigeria.
On September 30 the first African to make it to the U.S. with Ebola was identified. By October 8 he was dead. Ebola has arrived and, despite everything that the various agencies of the Obama Administration are telling us—the Centers for Disease Control and Homeland Security—I have no confidence it will not keep arriving.

The growing threat of losing our government to tyrannical global control has come to our doorstep with the new Center for Global Islam Studies. This article by Oleg Atbashian is very important as it echoes the warnings issued by Trevor Loudon, an expert in Russian and Islamic desires for global domination.
“Now, just as it was then, we’re up against a supremacist collectivist ideology whose goal is to establish a totalitarian utopian society on a global scale. The two deadly pipe dreams — global communism and the global caliphate — may have their differences, but in practical terms they both view the United States as the main obstacle in their quest of world domination. There is no reason why one can’t learn from the other’s vast experience in subverting this country.”
“The launch of a new Center for Global Islamic Studies at the extremely leftist University of Florida in Gainesville may have been planned as a purely academic affair, but the announcements in the local and national media, including AP and Fox News, exhibited more than a purely academic interest in this event.”
“The protest organizer, Randy McDaniels of ACT for America and the Counter-Terrorism Advisory Group, stated that our students certainly need to study Islam, as long as such studies are based on scientific objectivity and critical analysis. But the presence of John Esposito as the keynote speaker indicated that the new Global Islamic Studies Center was likely to go the way of many other universities, opening their doors and exposing our children to political Islam under the guise of education, with programs funded by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other state sponsors of Islamic fundamentalism.”
