If you did not see Derrick Wilburn from the Americans of Color and the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives when he was in Gainesville last year, you’ve got another chance. This time he will be speaking to the Gilchrist County Tea Party and they will also have Congressman Ted Yoho. Man, they have some pretty good recruiters if you ask me.
GILCHRIST COUNTY TEA PARTY
PRESENTS TWO GREAT SPEAKERS
AT THE TUESDAY
OCTOBER 14, 2014 MEETING
The Gilchrist County Tea Party has scheduled two dynamic speakers for this month’s Tea Party Meetings.
We are proud to bring you a National Conservative Speaker that is lively, funny, and informative. Derrick Wilburn, from Colorado, has agreed to join us on Tuesday for an evening of conservative enlightenment.
Derrick speaks all over the Country and we are very fortunate to have him join us. He will talk about how important it is for rural communities to come together and address the many issues that we have in fighting the progressive and liberal movements. He also will address how we can unite and be more productive in keeping Gilchrist County conservative.
Congressman Ted Yoho will also be present to bring us up to date on all the National issues that we now have before Congress and how he plans to address them when it’s time to vote. Your input is very valuable to him and he really seeks to find out how his constituents feel about the U.S. involvement in Syria, Iran, and how to combat ISIS. Congress is under tremendous pressure from many different factions, and Congressman Yoho really appreciates your feedback and input.
Don’t miss our next meeting,Tuesday, October 14, at 7 PM. We meet at the County Commission Chambers, on U.S. Highway 129 and S.E. 1 Avenue Trenton; across the street from the County Courthouse.

Nice to get a little update on an organization that does not oppose what many of their customers may believe.
By Chris Walker in RedState- What makes the conservative business traveler sleep soundly? Is it the high thread count sheets? The pillow top mattress? The rewards points accumulating towards that free end-of-the-year get away?
Or is just knowing that the cost of comfort has also bought the peace of mind that comes with the assurance that at least one hotel chain is not sending a piece of the profits towards a cause that a conservative would not normally support at the ballot box?

(Reuters) – Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza avoided prison on Tuesday when a U.S. judge sentenced him to serve eight months in a community confinement center after he pled guilty to violating campaign finance law.
D’Souza, 53, was ordered by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan to live in the center at the start of a five year probationary period in which he must do one day of community service a week. He must also pay a $30,000 fine and undergo weekly therapy, Berman said.
D’Souza, a frequent critic of U.S. President Barack Obama, admitted in May to illegally reimbursing two “straw donors” who donated $10,000 each to the unsuccessful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign in New York of Wendy Long, a Republican he had known since attending Dartmouth College in the early 1980s.

New Benghazi allegation puts spotlight on Hillary Clinton confidants, alleged after-hours document review.
As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

The company that runs the conservative Breitbart.com news site says the IRS has selected the network for an audit, in a move company executives suggest is politically motivated.
Breitbart News Network, a California-based company which runs several conservative websites, says the IRS recently audited its 2012 financial information.
“The Obama administration’s timing on this is exquisite, but try as they might through various methods to silence us, we will only get more emboldened,” Stephen K. Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart News Network, said in a written statement. Read more at foxnews.com.

An acrimonious and sometimes loopy battle for the conservative heart of North Central Florida has ended, with voters giving incumbent freshman Rep. Ted Yoho an overwhelming victory in the 3rd District Republican primary.
With all but a handful of precincts reporting, Yoho received 79.32 percent of the 46,953 votes cast in a landslide victory over challenger Jake Rush, a lawyer from Gainesville. Yoho spent $452,000 to Rush’s $198,000, and still had $302,000 on hand as of Aug. 6.
“There was a lot of anxiety leading up to this moment,” Yoho told a cheering crowd of supporters at Perry Plantation & Kennels, a stone mansion in the middle of a pasture east of Gainesville. “The third is the best district in Florida. You showed us that you like what we are doing for you and we are going to work harder for you.” Read more at ocala.com.
President Obama authorized airstrikes against Islamist terrorists in Iraq and approved a humanitarian mission to deliver food and other supplies to tens of thousands of Iraqis trapped on mountaintops, moves that represent the most significant re-engagement in Iraq since formal combat operations ended three years ago.
Speaking at the White House on Thursday night, the president said the U.S. cannot sit idly by as innocent Iraqis are slaughtered by the Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Remember when Barack Obama promised his administration would be the most transparent in history? Sadly, this has not been the case. In reality it has been just the oppisite. Finally journalists other than Fox News are speaking out about the secrecy and outright censorship of the Obama regime.
On July 8th the Society of Professional Journalists sent a letter to President Obama calling him out on the lack of transparency of his administration. It was signed by four members of SPJ including David Cuillier its president, as well as thirty five others in the field of journalism. While this letter may be an example of too little to late, it just might be an indication of the growing frustration with this president by those who were once his most rabid supporters. Me thinks the Pied Piper is out of tune!

Around noon today, May 30th, Pete Hegseth, CEO of Conservative Veterans for America, issued a press release on the resignation of VA chief, Gen. Eric Shinseki:

Hegseth On Shinseki’s Resignation: This Is Only The Beginning
“We need both reform and a reformer.”
Arlington, Va. – In an historic move, President Obama accepted the resignation of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Sec. Eric Shinseki, following evidence of widespread patient backlogs and alleged cover-ups by administrators throughout the VA healthcare system.
Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) was the first veterans organization to call for Secretary Shinseki to step down, doing so over a year ago. CVA was recently joined by The American Legion—the nation’s largest veterans group—in calling for Shinseki’s resignation.
Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, issued the following statement:
“Concerned Veterans for America fully supports President Obama’s decision to accept Sec. Shinseki’s resignation. More importantly, we emphasize that it doesn’t solve the widespread, systemic problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs. In fact, this is only the beginning. We need both reforms and a reformer, which is why it’s essential for Congress to pass systemic reforms at VA in the coming weeks and months, bringing real accountability, transparency, and choice to the Department of Veterans Affairs. The government is failing our veterans; it’s time to get to work fixing VA.”
