Patriot Movement

From The Gang Of Six To The Gang Of Twelve.

It really does sound like something out of Mao’s cultural revolution, doesn’t it? The Patriot Movement has been successful in ways that haven’t even become apparent yet. To the Marxists, our name is anathema. All you have to do is whisper “Tea-Party” around them and they go into paroxysms of vile invective, fit only for the streets of the slums they so love to perpetuate for their ‘plantation’ underclass.

Monday’s fiasco was no victory. What it was, was a classic display of Washington insider deal-making. I can tell you that the article I wrote, in which I began to explore the political necessity of replacing some or all of our party leadership, has drawn hundreds of comments. Although we haven’t had time to read them all, I assure you that we will within the next couple of days.

What you’re saying is surprising. Anger and disappointment… yes, there’s that in abundance. The country is a seething cauldron into which someone is poised to throw gunpowder. There is, however, a growing undercurrent of strength and determination.

It would be interesting to see a national census on the full numbers of the Patriot Movement, including those who agree with just about everything we stand for but do not necessarily identify themselves as tea-partiers. I’d be willing to venture to say that number could well run to a hundred million or more.

A new poll came out yesterday, saying that only 21% of the country identify themselves as liberal. This doesn’t bode well for the DeMarxists.

As Conservative Patriots, we have to take the lead in returning the country to sanity. The budget deal was a horrible piece of legislation that could only have been conceived in the fevered minds of the inside-the-beltway Republican establishment hacks. We know who all the players are, so I don’t need to go into that.

The Senate elections are coming up. We need to give some thought to who we will primary and then get strong conservatives to run in those races. Remember, no matter what they say… there are one hell of a lot more of us than there are of them. Let your voice be heard!

Outside The Law, Outside The Constitution – Obamites Defy Federal Judge.

In a graphic reminder to the nation of just why we threw the Democrat Congress out of there to start with, the delightful memories of Nancy-of-the-Smiling-Eyes refusing Republicans to be seated at key committee meetings… and who could forget the slimy machinations of Dirty Harry Reid. Oh, and then there’s UpChucky Schumer, who is a consistent stranger to anything resembling truth.


Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli seeks a hastened Supreme Court review of health reform.

We watched in growing anger as Obama and the Marxists crapped on our traditions, our laws, our constitution and our freedoms. They have dragged our, and therefore our country’s, honor through the dirt. They have engineered, and then presided over, the greatest crash and recession since the great depression. I guess they thought no one noticed.

They continued to demagogue, as item after item of their Mad-Max Marxist agenda was stopped or otherwise deflected by the really fine guerrilla legislative tactics employed by the Republicans, though heavily outnumbered. At every stage of the way, the Patriot groups were behind our Republican lawmakers and let them know it.

The Patriot Movement is different than any other citizens’ uprising I’ve ever heard of. It’s different in lots of ways, but one of its principal assets is just this… it’s principles. Maybe that’s why the left detests us so much. We can’t be bought.

Obama and the glee club are continuing to implement Obamacare in the face of a decree which makes the law not just unconstitutional, but unconstitutional in all its parts, having no severability clause. The justice commented that he did not have to file for an injunction against implementation, since his ruling had rendered the entire health care bill null and void… just like it never existed.

Yet again, Obama and the left laugh in the face of the law, the Constitution and most of all you, the American citizen. The American public are truly tired of the left’s constant and unremitting attempts to bring this country down. If there’s a single shred of anything good to be had from the experience of the last two years, it’s that America, all of America, has finally seen the left unmasked as never before, and we are not liking what we are seeing.

It’s A Patriot Thing, Anyone Can Make A Difference.

And that’s it in a nutshell, as they used to say. There have been many weighty opinions offered as to the success of the viral phenomenon known as the Tea Party or collectively the Patriot Movement, which name sort of encompasses all such groups.

It’s confusing to the liberals because they can’t find anyone to attack except Sarah Palin, who seems to be the target of the day every day. They must fear her terribly to hate her that much. Go, Sarah!

The Marxists can’t figure us out because we are diametrically opposed to them and their every precept. They are simply incapable of being honest with themselves. This in turn co-opts their sense of right and wrong and engenders attitudes of fear, spite and envy. A false sense of entitlement and anger towards those more successful in life. Perennially unhappy and unsatisfied, they inevitably seek to influence those around them to their own level of self-induced misery.

The difference between the liberal and the patriot could not be in greater contrast. On one hand, we are presented with doom and gloom and ever more strident calls for more of our treasure, both personal and national. On the other, we have the conservative patriot movement where the tempo is upbeat and the atmosphere is full of promise for America.

Our Conservative Congress is starting to make itself felt and will soon start flexing its muscles. What has made the difference so far amongst the ranks of the patriots, is that individual Americans have taken up the challenge in their own neighborhoods. They’ve thrown down the Conservative gauntlet at school board meetings and town council meetings across America.

We didn’t have some big government union or other Marxist front groups with their orchestrated miniature Nuremberg rallies. We didn’t have all that government/union funding either. Only the change in our pockets.

What I’m telling you is that you make the difference. Whether on the phone, talking to a neighbor or a friend… you are the conservative movement. You are the heart and soul of America.

Mea Culpa Again (Sort Of).

We have a lot of great readers out there and we cherish every one. Recently, we have had a few unplanned and unavoidable gaps in our publication. Just a day here and there, but I thought some clarity was called for.

I have a full time career outside of writing. It demands a lot of my time normally, but during the winter months especially. Dee, the very capable editor of this column, also has a full time career and has proven to be a gifted writer filling in for me. It takes several hours to write, edit and distribute our articles to our affiliates, who then distribute to their readers.

With the intense work schedules there are times when we just don’t have the time. Our first choice is to go to the archives and see if something there will work. Then there are the times, such as happened this last week, when we couldn’t even do that.

We were under no illusions when we started this column that it was going to be easy. Our sole purpose is to get the Conservative Constitutional message to as many people as we can. As anyone who has read my columns for any amount of time will tell you, I’m an equal opportunity opinion editorialist. I’m just as quick to jump on and excoriate the Republicans as I am the Marxists… quicker in fact.

The situation and the economy demand nothing less than our dedicated vigilance. Conservative principles have gotten us this far… a political comeback and reversal of epic proportions, for a party who had been written out, walked over and buried by virtually every liberal political pundit (and not a few of our own) in the country.

Here’s where it gets tough for the Republicrats. Had it not been for the Patriots, had it not been for the Conservative blogosphere and the new media, the Republicans would not have had the prayer of the proverbial snowball in hell. I think they’re finally starting to get the picture, given some of the things we’re seeing in the Congress. We’re proud of the small part we’ve been able to play in advancing this great cause.

Final Days, Final Drive.

With Independents and undecideds joining the Patriot movement in droves, even at this late date in the campaign, it’s just about curtains for the Democrats.

What really gets to me even now, two years into Obama’s leftist extravaganza, is how blind and deaf the Demarxists really were and, presumably, still are. They had it made. They had it all. We couldn’t stop them if we tried. But we tried. And we tried again. And in the end we still had no power. But we had stopped them. We had slowed down their agenda… and stopped them from bringing up several of their other signature abominations… for example, cap and tax and amnesty for illegals.

The very best of their tried and true story lines, told by a previously unfailing list of leftist A-listers and Hollyweird types, fell flat. They couldn’t grab a crowd at a bus stop during rush hour, so all over the country the left has been offering incentives to vote, in the form of everything from free food and concerts to actual cash to buy votes for them. It’s the only way they can fill a venue.

It’s not just that America isn’t listening to the left anymore. It’s that we did listen. What we saw and heard was enough to foster the new political reality of the Tea Party patriots.

No matter what, do not let them (the leftists) deter you for even a second. This is the final drive for success in turning back the Marxist assault on our Republic and our freedom. Don’t go getting lazy or weak now. Go back and get everyone you’ve talked to in the last six months and get them to the polls.

Vote for freedom… Vote for America… Vote like your life depended on it…

What A Wondrous Thing, This Patriot Movement.

It’s great to be an American. It’s great to be an American Patriot during this most momentous period in American history. Not that it isn’t a little scary too… with the assault against the fabric of the country by Barack Obama and his Marxist Government and Congress… with our borders a literal sieve, two wars, Iraq and Afghanistan, with the latter altogether uncertain because of Barack Obama’s indecision and his active undermining of the military mission and command there.

Some people see our president as favoring and aiding our enemies. If this was a Republican they’d be shrieking for his head, but then Obama did tell us that he had to get out of Afghanistan… he couldn’t lose the Democrats or some such? I’ll bet his statement got more play with the Taliban than it did with his rent-a-mob kook base. In a sane world we’d have him impeached and facing charges of giving aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war.

No one is going to convince me, or the people of this country, that this recession is over, or even close to it. Businesses and money are fleeing Obama’s wunderland every day. You see, one of the things that the DeMarxists have never been able to figure out is that they can tax the rich all they want. People with money aren’t stupid… once you have money you have to work hard at keeping it. They’ll pull the plug and take their money and leave.

Obama’s tax nazis will find themselves presiding over a diminishing return. What was it that Maggie Thatcher said about socialism? She said something to the effect that socialism was just peachy keen until you run out of other people’s money.

We have a peaceful and significantly violence-free revolution underway in this country. But make no mistake about it, it is a revolution nonetheless. I’m proud to be part of it. It is a revolution that is going to sweep the enemies of this country aside. Less than four weeks to the day of reckoning for the Democrats. Join us in our fight against the enemies of America.

America Does A Big Gutcheck

… and didn’t like what it found. Conservative writers, myself included, are enamored with the emerging Conservative majority in the country. We observe closely, in awe of seeing a free people exercising their fundamental right to remove from office those they have strongly come to oppose. We are truly witnessing a shift in the fabric of American politics.


Rick Santelli

Rick Santelli of CNBC financial news is the one who is credited with the term Tea Party, but if you check on the net you’ll find about ten pages of folks who claim to have invented it. That’s part of the mystique of the Conservative Patriot Movement.

The Patriot groups have literally sprung up all over the country. That’s one of the things that is just driving the DeMarxists nuts about the Tea Party groups. They just can’t visualize the Patriot Movement. It doesn’t equate… there’s no national movement or leadership. It’s entirely independent from any political party or organization. Leftists just can’t register that one… a popular movement they couldn’t match even in their wildest dreams… and one which has grown with logarithmic abandon.

America took one long look at the socialist assault on our country and made a conscious decision to stop it. As the election rapidly approaches, more DeMarxist weaknesses and vulnerabilities become apparent. Some prognosticators are saying that as many as 100 seats could change hands in the House alone. The Senate looks more vulnerable every day, also.

There are going to be a lot of Tea Parties in the run up to the elections. Get online and find your local group and get out there and support them. Talk to your friends and neighbors about America, the Constitution and Freedom.

Jim DeMint in 2012?

As far as I’m concerned, 2012 is much too far away for prognostication, for all the noise about Sarah Palin’s visit to Iowa. Jim certainly hasn’t outwardly indicated that he intends a run, by word or deed. Still, it’s a fascinating scenario to imagine.

Jim DeMint is a solid Conservative guy with down-to-earth values, and a willingness to stand tall despite the odds. He has scorched the hides of some of the Republican establishment by his very public and effective support for Tea Party Patriot candidates.

He’s probably catching hell in the cloak room from some of the effete of the party for soiling himself with the grass roots, who the party and politically-entitled look on as a rude impediment to maintaining business-as-usual, so that the party anointed may rule from afar, never having to actually soil their hands with the work of the people.

All the while, they are proclaiming to all and sundry how much they’ve sacrificed and how hard they’ve worked for the people. These Republican ‘elites’ really behave as though the world rotates around them. They also feel threatened by the strength and popularity of the Patriot movement. They also understand that the Tea Party and the Patriots could be their ticket to political irrelevance.

With the political landscape of the party changing in front of them, perhaps for ever, they have reason to be worried. I don’t know if Jim DeMint is planning to run in 2012 or not. Right now, like the rest of us, he’s thrown all his resources into helping us defeat the Marxists in November. I do know that we could do far worse than a Jim DeMint.

The Unification Factor.

The ruling junta braces itself for the firestorm of American voter disgust that’s manifesting itself into a political tsunami which could sweep all before it. It’s no secret that the not-so-thinly disguised Marxists that make up the bulk of Barack Hussein Obama’s administration may be planning exit strategies soon… as some already have. Likewise, the most radically left-leaning Democratic Congress in our country’s history is scurrying to find cover that no longer exists.

When I saw, back in the beginning, who Barack Hussein Obama was and that he had all the attributes of a dictator-in-waiting, I wondered how much it would take and how long it would be before the American people woke up and rebelled… at least I was praying they would. I was answered in spades. The American public began to act within months of Obama taking the oath and the Patriot Movement literally exploded across the landscape. Numbering in the millions, it has become a potent political force to be reckoned with by both Democrats and Republicans.

I had always known this to be a center-right country with a strongly conservative base. My faith in anything Republican was shot through and through after the election. I had been none too happy with the eight years of Republican mismanagement under Bush. After watching the Republican insiders work to see ‘moderate’ John McCain go down in flames, most of the Republicans and Conservatives woke up to the fact that the RNC, in all of its manifestations, just wasn’t on the same track as the rest of the country, who had begun to figure out the Barack Obama thing and were beginning to think.

The DeMarxist Congress, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, literally stole the people’s will by buying votes in the most blatant and disgusting shows of political blind man’s buff ever seen. This time though, the people were aware and waiting… and watching… and learning.

The political phenomenon known variously as the Tea Party or the Tea Party Patriots, or sometimes just as the Patriot Movement which seems to be a blanket term, are largely, at least in my view, a creation of the left. We’re that shot in the head the lefties got when they pulled their Marxist-Leninist crap in Congress, starting with the stimulus. The left birthed the instrument of their destruction.

A true grass roots movement, the Patriots are as unhappy with the Republican establishment as with the DeMarxists (for newer readers, DeMarxist is a term I coined for the 60s radicals forming the majority of the Democratic side of the House and the Senate).

Today, the greatest need is to win the election. Everything else can wait. Win in November… right now, that’s all that matters. There are some really bright lights amongst the young Republicans in Congress, with many more Conservatives coming soon. The Republican establishment has to find some way to reconcile itself to the massive and growing Patriot Movement or risk destruction.

The people are speaking through the movements. It’s just that many establishment types forget just who the heck it is they work for. For the establishment to regain any sense of credibility, it will require somewhat of a reformation in thinking and in hard-hitting Conservative politics. That’s what we are telling them we want them to do.

Soros Takes Aim At Patriot Movement.

Soros is behaving like an army mule with a burr under his saddle blanket… which is to say that the Tea Party movement has gotten under his skin.


George Soros

His coup against the United States, through surrogates in the Obama government, isn’t doing so well. George is a sore loser. He’s really piqued at the nerve of those Patriot Movement types for upsetting the Marxist agenda of Barack Hussein Obama. Obama is a Soros creation… Soros and Indonesian Muslim, that is.

George is so irritated that he’s launched Teapartytracker.org. This site will feature videos and interviews from the ‘false right’, which have been showing up here and there at Tea Party events to sabotage the message. Fortunately, at least so far, George’s warriors haven’t been real hard to locate and neutralize.

The front groups for Teapartytracker are the usual Marxist suspects… the NAACP, Think Progress, New Left Media and Media Matters for America. Think Progress is a Soros organization with ties to former Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta’s Center for American Progress.

Soros really wants to blunt and discredit the Patriot Movement in the eyes of the voters. Sorry, George, you’re a dime short and a dollar late on this one. The facts are that the American people are speaking through the Patriot Movements across the country. The left isn’t facing the mind-numbed masses they had hoped to face. Instead, they are facing millions and millions of well-informed and highly-motivated citizens, who have sworn to bring this country back to the Constitution and to reverse the indescribable damage done by the Marxist Government of Barack Hussein Obama.

Democrats are departing the Obama caravan like fleas from a dead camel. They are doing everything they can to be anything but Democrats. Too late. Remember when the health care vote was counted? I wrote then that we can count too, and we’ll remember each and every vote. Well, we did and we do. We remember how you voted. We remember how cocky and flip you all were as you blithely shattered both the Constitution and the law, in order to pass the worst legislation this country has seen since the new deal. We know your names.

The election is less than two months away now, and we’ll make sure every citizen in your district knows how you voted. You can run but you can’t hide from us.
