Venezuelans Celebrate Holy Week with Christian Prayer for End of Socialism

Attribution: @atomiktiger

The protests against the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela have taken a Christian turn this week as the mostly Catholic nation celebrates its greatest holiday. Students in Caracas yesterday performed the series of prayers known as the Stations of the Cross dedicated to a democratic nation, with prayers for an end to socialism.

As Infobae reports, college students in Caracas, whose classes have been almost entirely canceled thanks to violent attacks by pro-Maduro forces on campus, marched the streets of Caracas barefoot to perform the Stations of the Cross, a Holy Week ceremony by Catholics in which they recreate the journey Jesus took from his prison to the cross. The ceremony usually involves twelve “stations,” stops on the way to being crucified. The students prayed at one of twelve stations representing a different ailment destroying the nation thanks to the socialist government. “We march barefoot to symbolize the suffering of Venezuela,” one student told the newspaper, “the repression, the bad governance, the scarcity [of goods].”  Read more at breitbart.com.

Amy Kremer has Resigned From Tea Party Express

‘I’ve wanted to move in a different direction for a while,’ Kremer says

Earlier today, I learned in an email that my friend Amy Kremer has resigned from Tea Party Express.  She has been in the Tea Party/Conservative movement since day one and Chairman of TPE for quite some time.  It didn’t take very long after the initial shock wore off for my excitement to build as I realized that she must be headed for new challenges in the effort to save our republic.  From Amy’s Facebook page:

Friends, I resigned from Tea Party Express. I wanted to share the news with you!

Louisville, KY – Amy Kremer announced today her resignation as Chairman of the Tea Party Express, effective immediately:

“This has been a really difficult decision for me, but the time has come for me to leave Tea Party Express. I’ve wanted to move in a different direction for a while, but also wanted to make sure that any change I make was also a positive change for the conservative movement.

“So as we move into this election cycle, I think the time is right.

“As one of the only remaining members of the original tour, Tea Party Express has been a huge part of my life and I am proud of the historic work we accomplished – like partnering with CNN to host the first ever Tea Party Presidential Debate and electing conservatives such as Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz to Congress.

“The past 5 years of working with the conservative grassroots movement has been the most meaningful of my life. As one of the original founders of the modern day tea party movement, I am humbled by the community of activists who have built it. I’ve very grateful to the many people I’ve met and worked with along the way.

“While I can’t give the specifics yet, my new projects will keep me working in that movement. While I may no longer be on a bus, I will definitely be on the ground, continuing my work in the movement and for the conservative cause. I’m excited about engaging in competitive Senate primaries and supporting fiscal conservatives in the coming weeks.”

In an article that appeared on CNN’s PoliticalTicker blog published shortly after Kremer’s Facebook post, some of the specifics about her future were revealed.  Mitch McConnell can’t be too pleased.  Hint: I don’t think it’s a coincidence that she made her announcement from Kentucky.  Read the piece on PoliticalTicker.com here.

Speaking Truth to Power – The Black Conservatives Fund

On Monday, April 14th former ACORN whistleblower and True the Vote spokesperson Anita Moncrief announced the launching of a new PAC, The Black Conservatives Fund:

“I am proud to be on the board of a new PAC, The Black Conservative Fund. BCF will support black conservative and Republican candidates. We are also focusing on education, training, challenging race baiters/hustlers and working together to improve our communities.

“Our website http://blackconservativesfund.com is live and our proud board members are: Ken Blackwell, CL Bryant, Sonnie Johnson, Erik Rush, Kevin Daniels, Princella Smith, KCarl Smith, Alfonzo Rachel, Ron Miller, myself and others.”

 

The press release announcing the launch stated the following:  Black Conservatives Fund is committed to supporting black conservatives who are dedicated to spreading the message of limited government and traditional values. The organization will support candidates through direct contributions in addition to web, TV, and radio advertisements, conducting get-out-the-vote drives, and funding other activities that BCF endorsed candidates may need.  “All across America, black conservatives are running for office in record numbers.  The lock that the liberals have held on the black vote is slowly but surely breaking,” said Anita Moncrief, a founding member of BCF’s board of advisors.  You may find the complete press release here.

The BCF came out slugging and wasted no time announcing that the first two candidates it is supporting are T. W. Shannon, running for Congress from Oklahoma, and Mia Love, running a second campaign for Congress from Utah.

Enemies of the State

Fox News:  Citizens put in the crosshairs of their own government – how could this be happening in America?

From the ATF to Homeland Security to environmental agencies, powerful forces are turning against Americans who thought the government was on their side.

The truth is, even in the representative democracy of the United States of America, if the government goes after you it can be a nightmare.

In this Fox News special, the Fox News Reporting team uncovers several alarming stories of government officials taking on private citizens who don’t believe they did anything wrong.

And that’s what makes it so scary – if it could happen to them, it could happen to anyone.

As you watch this presentation, please keep the following quote in mind:

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

Here is the complete Fox News Special broken down into six YouTube segments by the Mass Tea Party.  The documentary first aired on Saturday, March 5th, 2014.  Truth is stranger than fiction – and scarier:

Tea Party Candidate First Ever to Win as Write-In

A Tea Party candidate became the first ever state senator in Pennsylvania to win as a write-in candidate on Tuesday in a special election that showed how dissatisfied voters are, even at the local level, with both organized political parties.

During the campaign, conservative Republican Scott Wagner was blistered by establishment Republicans that he accused of “orchestrating the special election in such a way to hand the seat, vacated by Mike Waugh in January,” to the establishment Republican candidate Ron Miller.  Continue reading at:  breitbart.com.

‘America’ – The Latest Dinesh D’Souza Movie

Sarah Palin Reads / Remakes Green Eggs And Ham At CPAC

Building on Sen. Ted Cruz’s use of Dr. Seuss’ ‘Green Eggs and Ham” during his recent Defund Obamacare filibuster, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin read her own version of this kids’ classic to an animated CPAC 2014 audience:

IRS Hearing, Obamacare Changes Make America Nation of Men, Not of Laws

On Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee held a hearing on the IRS’ targeting of conservative non-profit applicants. The hearing, led by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), quickly devolved into chaos after former IRS official Lois Lerner repeatedly used the Fifth Amendment to avoid answering questions about her involvement in the targeting. When Issa rose for adjournment, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) went berserk: “I am tired of this. You cannot just have a one-sided investigation. There is absolutely something wrong with that, and it is absolutely un-American.” When Issa maintained that Cummings had asked no questions, Cummings said, “Chairman, what are you hiding?”

Afterward, Issa approached the media and explained, “He was talking into a mic in an adjourned meeting. The fact is Mr. Cummings came to make a point of his objections to the process we have been going through. He was actually slandering me at the moment that the mics did go off by claiming that this had not been a real investigation.”

But Cummings does not care about the truth. Nor does he care about the rise of an arbitrary and capricious executive branch willing to manipulate the law at will. For too many Democrats, America under President Obama has become a government of men, not of laws – and they’re just fine with that. Read m ore at breitbart.com.

Young Republican official: Tea Party is full of…

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.

Reagan’s Heirs: The Tea Party

How proud I am to be a Reagan heir!

“Say again? The Tea Party’s reason for being is to support “fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free market economic policies” — and this makes it racist? And worse? Where have we heard this before?

If you guessed the Reagan era you would be right. Yes indeed, Ronald Reagan was accused of racism — among all manner of other things — for supporting exactly what the Tea Party supports: fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market economic policies.

As the Tea Party prepares to celebrate its fifth anniversary, it’s exactly the moment to note that this is a group of Americans who in fact can lay legitimate claim to being called “Reagan’s Heirs” — the ideological descendants of the ideas identified with the man Americans rank as the nation’s greatest president.

The Tea Party is nothing more threatening than groups of like-minded Americans who are deeply concerned their country is being run off the fiscal cliff.”

STATE-RUN MEDIA: FCC to Police Newsrooms


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.
