Florida Democrat Alan Grayson is under investigation for domestic violence according to a statement from Capt. Angelo Nieves of Florida’s Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Along with submitting pictures which reportedly support the allegations, Grayson’s wife also alleges that Grayson told her he would leave her “In the gutter” with nothing in the presence of the couple’s young children.
Grayson co-sponsored the 2013 re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
Grayson’s wife Lolita, who also recently filed for divorce, claiming their 24 year marriage is “irretrievably broken,” claims Congressman Grayson “pushed her against a door, causing her to fall to the ground, during a confrontation Saturday at their home on Oak Park Road.” Read more at: breitbart.com.

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
Always candid congressman Trey Gowdy (R SC) discusses National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s comments on Meet the Press, where she said she has no regrets for using misleading talking points about the Benghazi attack.
About David Gregory’s softball (or should I say beach ball) interview with Rice on Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” he said, “I get tougher questions in the Bojangles drive-thru than he asked her.”
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.

(Americans for Prosperity, Michigan) February 22, 2014
LANSING – Today Rep. Gary Peters set his Washington DC legal attack dogs out to intimidate and silence Julie Boonstra, a Michigan mother battling leukemia who had the courage to speak up after the insurance plan she liked was cancelled due to the Affordable Care Act.
Instead of listening to Julie’s concerns, Peters took steps to strong-arm Michigan television stations to simply pull “Julie’s Story” from the airwaves. These are desperate political tactics from someone who is increasingly incapable of defending his support for Obamacare.
AFP-Michigan State Director Scott Hagerstrom issued the following statement:
“The fact that Representative Peters would sic his legal team on a Michigan mother battling cancer to muzzle her tells you everything you need to know about his record of putting politics over people.
“Julie Boonstra was brave enough to tell her story about how Obamacare is making her life worse and instead of offering compassion and solutions, Rep. Peters responded with intimidation.
“Rep. Peters is an unwavering supporter of Obamacare and now he won’t take responsibility for the devastating impact it’s having on millions of Americans just like Julie.
“This attack on her credibility is disgusting, unwarranted, and inexcusable. Congressman Peters and his indecent campaign team should be ashamed of themselves.”

FCC to monitor news rooms? Adds new meaning to “State Run Media.” Hammer and sickle!
The Obama FCC will start policing newsrooms recommending what the organizations should report on.
The Wall Street Journal: News organizations often disagree about what Americans need to know. MSNBC, for example, apparently believes that traffic in Fort Lee, N.J., is the crisis of our time. Fox News, on the other hand, chooses to cover the September 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi more heavily than other networks. The American people, for their part, disagree about what they want to watch.
But everyone should agree on this: The government has no place pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.
Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring.

Amy Kremer is chair of Tea Party Express and a friend. In this article she writes about Katrina Pierson a conservative running for Congress against establishment RINO, Pete Sessions, in the upcoming Republican primary in Texas. The article also delves deeply into the Grand Old Party’s efforts to sabotage conservative candidates no matter the cost. Maybe they should forgo the elephant logo for that of a Kamikaze pilot? – ADB
By Amy Kremer
(via Rare) Have you heard of Katrina Pierson? Probably not.
We hear a lot about the problems the Republican Party has attracting voters outside its traditional base, perceived as overwhelmingly male, older, married and white.
GOP-affiliated talking heads lament the fact that women, young people, singles and minorities won’t give the Republican Party a second look. Party operatives spend millions on post-mortems and autopsies analyzing the intractable puzzle of the GOP’s lack of acceptance within these circles.
We are told that Republicans might never win national elections again because they alienate minorities and don’t know how to reach or effectively communicate their message to a diverse set of voters. Continue reading at: rare.us.
Here’s congressman Trey Gowdy again. This clip is from FoxNews on Nov. 17th, 2014. This guy always nails it. Simply put: the hits just keep on coming!
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.
Employer health care mandate delayed for small businesses.
But as Obama said: “That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want.”
The Hill: The Obama administration on Monday announced it is delaying the employer mandate in ObamaCare until 2016 for some businesses.
This delay in the mandate — the second so far — would only apply to businesses with between 50 and 99 employees, who would have until January 2016 to decide whether to offer insurance to their employees or pay a penalty. Businesses would also be barred from cutting their workers in order to fall under the threshold. Continue reating at: thehill.com.
After many months the Obama regime still won’t investigate Benghazi, they won’t investigate the IRS for targeting conservative groups or the Justice Department for Fast and Furious. Miraculously though, less than 24 hours after Chris Christie’s two hour press conference where he took responsibility for his staff members’ closing of lanes on the George Washington Bridge, President Obama’s cumbersome federal bureaucracy managed to launch a full blown investigation into what is now being dubbed Bridge Gate. Surprised?
Dr. Gina Loudon, and Katrina Pierson join FBN’s Charles Payne to weigh in with the reasons why this IRS Scandal will continue to be an issue heading into next year. Note: While Gainesville Tea Party is organized as an LLC, and not directly affected by this ongoing travesty, we are very much concerned with issue. Our Founders are rolling over in their graves. An interesting fact: Liberty runs in the Louden family; Dr. Gina is Trevor Loudon’s cousin.

The Robertson family has issued an official statement in response to A&E’s decision Wednesday to suspend Phil Robertson indefinitely, which followed the patriarch’s controversial interview with GQ.
As many fans of “Duck Dynasty” suspected, the statement indicates the family “cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.” The statement says they are in discussions with A&E “to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty”:
Here is the statement, issued tonight at http://duckcommander.com:
We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.
In case you have been in a cave without cable TV or Internet access (lucky you), the Robertson patriarch gave an interview with GQ’s Drew Magary in which he paraphrased Corinthians, called homosexuality sinful and frankly used the words vagina and anus to say he found gay sex “not logical.” Continue reading at: newsok.com.
From PolitiCgicks.tv: …However, this suspension is not about one man’s personally held beliefs, it is not about A&E defending the gay community and it’s not even really about homosexuality. This media story is about the changing shift that is taking place in our country leading us further and further away from freedom. It wasn’t very long ago that Dan Cathy, the CEO of Chick-fil-A, was dealing with a very similar media driven story. He defended his beliefs in traditional marriage and the gay community stood against his remarks with an effort to boycott Chick-fil-A. Cathy stated in an interview at the time of this controversy, “We know that it (traditional marriage) might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord; we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”
DO IT: A&E List of Advertisers – Hit the Network Where it Hurts – The Wallet!
I went to bed mad and I woke up still fuming at this culture of cry babies who throw tantrums when they hear someone else dare stand for the courage of their conviction and it happens to differ from theirs. Especially when it comes from the party of the left– the self proclaimed “tolerant party.” Their tolerance famously stops at the end of their opinion and freedom of speech is a one way street.
Phil Robertson is just the latest victim. A&E made a terrible mistake and I have a little comfort predicting that they will rue the day that they made the decision to fire the star for simply answering a question in an honest and matter of fact way when asked directly by a reporter.
But, putting that aside for now…what can YOU do to show your extreme displeasure? Capitalism is a wonderful thing as it allows you to register your feelings, vote your pleasure/displeasure, and stand up for what YOU believe in as well…all with the dollars in your pocketbook.
As such, here is a preliminary list of A&E sponsors/advertisers. We will work on getting contact info to add to this as well. In addition, I’ve read that when you buy Duck Dynasty “gear” make sure it is the Duck Commander brand and NOT the Duck Dynasty brand as A&E owns that as well.
