The Iowa Caucus

There will be many twists before the Iowa Caucus on Monday night. The Bachmann campaign claims that their former Iowa State Chair was paid by Ron Paul's campaign to switch allegiance AND a political action committee which had planned to support Bachman has defected to Romney.
Romney describes healthcare as a conservative principle. Rick Santorum turns on Ron Paul and the Republicans are asking if the Democrats are using Paul to create primary election chaos.

Redstate: posted the statement from the IA-GOP which explains what will happen during the Iowa Caucus

All caucus participants arrive at their precincts where they will sign in at the door upon arrival. Caucuses will begin at 7:00PM CT.

The caucus meetings begin with the pledge of allegiance. A caucus chair and secretary will be elected by the body to run the meeting and take notes.

After the chair and secretary are elected, candidate representatives from each campaign are given time to speak on behalf of their candidate.

Once the speakers have finished, sheets of paper are be passed out to every registered Iowa Republican from the precinct. Voters then write down their candidate preference.

All votes are then collected.

Every vote is counted. The caucus chair and secretary will count the votes in front of the caucus and a representative from each campaign is allowed to observe the counting of the votes. The results are recorded on an official form provided by the Republican Party of Iowa and are announced to the caucus.

A caucus reporter is chosen to report the results to the Republican Party of Iowa, accompanied by campaign representatives to verify the results reported to Iowa GOP officials.

RPI officials do not count results; they aggregate them from around the state and report them to the media. To ensure consistency in reporting, campaign representatives have the opportunity to be present with RPI officials as votes are reported to the public.

We will be reporting the votes for Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Buddy Roemer, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, “No Preference,” and “Other.”

“No Preference” votes include those who vote “present,” “no preference, “uncommitted,” or “none of the above.”

Within fourteen days of the caucus, certified results will be released for a complete breakdown of all caucus votes that were cast by precinct.

After the Presidential preference poll is completed the caucus will elect precinct committee representatives; delegates, alternates, and junior delegates to the county convention; and discuss and submit platform resolutions for consideration at the county convention.

A Bridge Back To George Allen

“The bridge back to me supporting Radkte has been burned, blown up and nuked to the stone age. I would vote for her in a primary if she was the only candidate against Allen, but that is how much I loathe an Allen candidacy.”
~ Chip Tarbutton comment on Sara for America blog

It is comments like this that has prompted me to write this post. Actually, I have been mulling this over for sometime, I am “pick your battles” type person, but decide it was time to talk. Here is another comment I received in an email from someone who says they are a patriot and a staunch support of Jamie Radtke.

“[George Allen] voted for new entitlement programs and sat by as spending increased $16,000.00 per second for the six years he served.”

Oddly enough the very next day, after I received this email, the DSCC (Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee) was tweeting this exact statistic. Do you REALLY think they are attacking George Allen for spending too much?... more like it was too little.

And then there is constant proclamation, “I don’t understand how a patriot can support George Allen?” and then the name calling of “republican lap dog”. It is o.k. everyone is entitled to their opinion and I can take some name calling. I will probably have a few lobbed at me after this post.

My question is, Why would strong conservatives put out clever sound bite statistic that is touted by the liberal democrat and our ultimate opponent in a general election. I would ask, have you taken the time to figure the “per second” rate of debt that Tim Kaine left in Virginia. It seems to me as a conservative and a patriot that would have made better use on my time. Or if you did not figure that statistic then where did you get it, from Tim Kaine, or worst Radtke’s campaign.

Let me start with the fact the U.S. Senate is not an elected office you want a newbie politician, someone who has never held office. With the exception of Jim Webb, who DID have an extensive career in public service and money, it is usually former Governors who run for, and win the Virginia U.S. Senate. The reason they are intimately familiar with Virginia and Virginia law. As most patriots know the Senate is where our founding fathers intended for the more experienced politician to give a voice to the states. It would be easy for someone who does not have this first hand knowledge to get easily manipulated into supporting something that may seem constitutional or the “right” thing to do in theory, but not good for Virginia at all. None of the other candidates in the republican primary, that I am aware of, had held elected office, but many are claiming “constitutional conservatives”. It is a nice claim to make and it sounds good in speeches, but they have no record or resume’ to back it up.

Last spring when the candidates were starting to make the rounds this article in the American Spectator stated:

[George Allen] is no Mike Castle or Charlie Crist. Instead he's the governor who reformed welfare and abolished parole, the senator who voted for tax cuts and promoted conservative judges (including, as he is quick to point out, Henry Hudson, the Virginia jurist who ruled against Obamacare). Allen's campaign pitch is filled with references to balanced budgets and the line-item veto, and he is particularly sharp on energy policy. George Allen's sins against conservatism were ones widely committed by George W. Bush-era Republicans.

At the end of the article, James Antle ask:

So could the 2006 winner of the Conservative Political Action Conference presidential straw poll now be considered too moderate to nominate for the U.S. Senate? It's difficult to see that happening, and Allen is working hard to make sure it doesn't.

Whoa, wait a minute; George Allen won the 2006 CPAC Straw poll for Presidential Candidate in 2008 a full 2 points over John McCain. I would have gladly race to the polls to vote for Allen over McCain any election day. I would also like to add, this happened at the end of Senator Allen’s first term. So conservatives “loathed” Allen so much they wanted him to be president.

George Allen can defend his record against Tim Kaine, but the other republican primary candidates are actually helping Tim Kaine. At this stage in the game, if there was a serious republican primary challenger they would be polling neck and neck with Allen, both in the polls and in fundraising. It is just not happening.

While I did not agree with the timing of the recent senate debate hosted by the A.P. Yes, they should have waited until after the primary. I am not really surprised by it. This thought, from my cynical side, crossed my mind: We all suspect that main stream media of liberal biased, right? Well, what if the timing of the A.P. debate was done on purpose. What do I mean by that? I mean, they knew that the tea party activist who supported the “anti-Allen” candidates would cry fowl and make waves about it. And that is exactly what happened. But the truth is the A.P. knows what most politicos know that is to be a serious contender in this race at this point you need at least here: To get an invite candidates must have averaged at least 15 percent in published polls and raised at least 20 percent of the amount of money raised by their party's front runner. This was the requirement to be involved in the debate. That is a pretty low bar and none of the other candidates from the republican side or the democrat side were able to meet that. But you did not hear the democrats crying fowl or attacking Tim Kaine, if they did the media sure did not cover it.

This leads me to my last point, for those who where truly dissatisfied with Allen’s performance as Senator, you have had 6 years to find a primary challenger that was up for the task. Many tea party people were involved with their local republican committees long before the tea party. Who did you have in mind to run against Jim Webb had he not retired? Well that question may have already been answered. My support for Allen is because he can and will do a good job representing me and the state of Virginia in the U.S. Senate. And YES! I am a patriot.

Another Sign George Allen Is

Hotlineoncall posted yesterday:

Another sign George Allen is the inevitable GOP Senate nominee: an opponent's campaign manager is stepping aside.

And Bearing Drift posted that Dave Johnson, has been floating his resume around unsolicited to various firms in Richmond.

Jamie Radtke’s campaign is $85,472 in debt and only $43,163 on hand as of the last FEC filing. Radtke’s campaign has been floundering by Tea Party infighting, polls in the single digits, and an unwillingness to debate anyone but former Governor George Allen to the point of sidestepping a Shenandoah Tea Party debate last month.

This weekend the Republicans Party of Virginia will be the Advance (Republicans don't retreat) in Homestead Resort, in Hot Springs, Virginia. Here's a youtube about the Advance.

Hundreds (the resort and surrounding hotels are full) of Tea Party activists, Republicans, candidates and elected officials will gather to celebrate the 2011 victories, train for future elections, and plan for the critical Presidential, Senatorial and Congressional races of 2012.

There are 15 breakout/training sessions and politicians, candidates and political organizations host hospitality suites. If you are interested in Virginia politics this is the place to be seen. However, Radtke is not having a suite and she's not even getting a $100 table in the lobby. She retreating to Natural Bridge High School with only several other Tea Party leaders.

Redstatevirginia posted:

On Saturday, December 3rd from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., several Tea Party and other patriot groups in the 6th Congressional District will hear from U.S. Senate 2012 candidates, E.W. Jackson, Sr. and Jamie Radtke during the morning session.

Around 12 noon, there will be a potluck lunch, followed by breakout meetings by each patriot group to discuss the U.S. Senate candidates. Goal is to assist the process to support a two-candidate race for U.S. Senate in the Republican primary.

If there any doubt that the Virginia Tea Party Patriot Federation was formed exclusively to promote Radtke, read on.

Eric Odam at CampaignTrailReport posted that George Allen (R-VA) is taking some heat from a statewide coalition of tea party groups over a press release that announced a plethora of tea party endorsements. The press release lists some 100 or so names of tea party activists, organizers and leaders who support Allen’s candidacy for Senate.

Henrico, VA – Today George Allen received the endorsement of over 100 Tea Party Patriots throughout the Commonwealth, led by Coby Dillard, Co-Founder of the Hampton Roads Tea Party, Laura Alcorn, Co-Founder of the Richmond Patriots, Strother Smith, President of the 10th Amendment Foundation, Ben Marchi, former State Director of Americans for Prosperity and conservative Tea Party activists Tito Munoz and Carl Tate. These Tea Party Patriots cited George Allen’s strong record on fiscal responsibility, individual liberty and his unwavering commitment to protect and stand up for the Constitution of the United States.

The press release provoked an immediate response by the Northern Virginia Tea Party and Virginia Tea Party Federation, one of the largest coalitions of tea party groups in the state. The federation claims to have approximately 40-50 legitimate groups in its membership, most of whom do not endorse or support George Allen. The group pushed out the following statement in response to George Allen’s release.

The Northern Virginia Tea Party has rebuked a George Allen campaign announcement which has implied that they and the state federation of Tea Party Patriots have endorsed his campaign and called upon George Allen to withdraw the announcement, reprimand the staff or consultants who created this misleading or dishonest announcement, meet with their leadership to offer his assurance that this will not happen again, and focus on face to face debates with other candidates seeking the support of Tea Party Patriots in Virginia for the 2012 GOP Senate nomination.

The recent announcement of Tea Party endorsement by the Allen campaign, the Tea Party statement said that “it is misleading at best, dishonest at worst. No candidate has been endorsed by any statewide Tea Party organization in Virginia and especially not by the Northern Virginia Tea Party.”

The full statement can be read here.

Karen Hurd, President of the Northern Virginia Tea Party, said George Allen is falsely claiming to have tea party support. “he’s trying to make it look like he’s got this great big groundswell of grassroots support. He does not.” Hurd suggested many names on the list of Allen’s release do not fully support Allen and did not give permission to be listed.

After a few phone calls, however, I found most names on the list were very much in support of George Allen. Michelle Stanley of the Richmond Patriots, for example, confirmed she had indeed endorsed Allen and said she believed the list was legitimate. Stanley, who is also a blogger here at, believes the Northern Virginia Tea Party and VA Federation are fully in support of candidate Jamie Radkte.

Indeed, there does appear to be a conflict of interest in the response put out by the Norther Virginia Tea Party. First, Karen Hurd told me that as of yesterday she is a paid consultant for Jamie Radkte’s campaign. Second, Jamie Radkte is one of the key founding members of the VA Tea Party Federation and the coalition appears to be heavy handed with its membership and support of Radtke.

Michelle Stanley told me the Richmond Patriots had at one time been a member of the Federation, but decided to withdraw membership when it became clear the coalition was a support mechanism for Radtke’s run for Senate.

There is no doubt George Allen doesn’t have unanimous support of Virginia Tea Party Groups. That said, he certainly has legitimate claim to a fairly large support base among Virginia tea partiers. Additionally, those reacting to Allen’s tea party support are clearly doing so in the interest of Jamie Radtke.

Do Not Attack Your Allies, by Tony Hall

We have had a very interesting week with the release of the Virginia Tea Party Patriots endorsements of George Allen for U.S. Senate from the Commonwealth of Virginia . This has created a firestorm that many of us expected. Anybody on that list who didn't want their name used or have changed their minds should contact the Allen Campaign and let them know. Hopefully the Allen Campaign will release another updated list soon because that is the right thing to do.

I would like to thank Sara James for her articles on the subject (Have You Paid Your Dues Tea Partiers) and Tom White for his excellent analysis of the issue (Fight For The Tea Party Vote). Coby Dillard is on the List and you can read Coby's response here (For George Allen).

I have listened to Allen, Radtke and Donner speak on the issues facing us and although I am endorsing George Allen at this time I can honestly say that if Jamie Radtke or Tim Donner were to win the Republican Nomination I would wholeheartedly support them in their campaign to defeat Tim Kaine and Obama's money! Can those opposing Allen say the same thing? I would hope so. I look forward to the Republican Debates.

I am also on the list by choice and I always find it amazing when people who claim to be leaders of Conservative Organizations insist on going out of their way to to humiliate, attack and ridicule people who are their natural allies just because they do not approve of the candidate they are endorsing. True Conservative Leaders build bridges to other Conservative groups. True Conservative Leaders try to persuade you to their point of view without relying on personal attacks. True Conservative Leaders will respect your decision weather they agree with your choice or not. Apparently some of these so called Leaders of Conservative Organizations have resorted to calling people like me Republican Stooges, Cogs in the Republican Machine (paraphrased), question our Conservatism and even our Patriotism. Just who in the HELL do you think you are? Who in the HELL died and made you King or Queen? I will endorse who I want when I want weather you like it or not! I do not tell you who you should support nor do I make judgments about your Conservatism and Patriotism based on who you support.

Although I have had some spirited discussions with a few of my fellow Conservatives I have NEVER questioned their Conservatism and especially their Patriotism. I also do not resort to personal attacks. If any of them thought that I was conducting personal attacks in some of our discussions please except my apologies.

I hope that the so called Leaders of these Conservative Groups will learn that you attract a lot more support with honey than with vinegar!Do not attack your Natural Allies.

Remember the TRUE Enemy out there are the Progressive Democrats and their defeat is JOB 1.

Update: While George Allen is rolling out support from new legislators and businessmen, Karen Hurd is still contacting the media over the outrage of 100 people who associate themselves with the tea party (Taxed Enough Already) movement.

Rioting Across America, Then and Now

Rioting Across America, The Great Depression

These clips are not just of the Great Depression, but time frames surrounding that period. Do you have any doubts that the Communists and Progressives have been with us for 100 years or better? Well, they have been under many guises. Many times it is in the form of unions and organizers who claim they want to help the worker, when in reality, the ultimate goal is bringing ‘change’ to our form of government. When you were growing up, did you ever hear of these riots and this violence that eventually led up to WWII and afterwards? I didn’t. This is a first for me.

From a comment on the thread:

Those workers who were rioting were damn serious!

60,000 showed up for some of the riots at that time!

Governors of multiple states had to call out their National Guard.

The Guard showed up with their side arms, machine guns, and gattling guns, ready to use them as needed.

The workers made alot of use of homemade bombs and molotov cocktails.

The police used shot guns and alot of tear gas and “naseous” gas (that made you feel sick to your stomach).

Someone was reported dead and several were wounded at every riot that was covered in that footage.

Policemen were killed or injured.

Rioters overturned cars, attacked cab drivers and their passengers, and smashed all of the windows out of businesses.

There were alot of clubs, bats, and billy clubs used left and righ by law enforcement personnel and rioters alike.

I guess this is what we have to look forward to – a whole lot of death, injury, and destruction of personal property.

Two quotes are worth repeating from that video clip:
“American will never allow a dictator in this country.”
“Americans must remember that rioting is only a short step away from Civil War.”
Another very interesting comment on the thread:
One of my uncles was a professional “strike breaker” during that time and throughout the 50s and 60s — what the commies called a “scab”. Whatever needed done — he found a way or made a way to make it happen!

My uncle and men like him kept whole industries in operation during the likes of these riots and maintained America as an industrial power.

Many, many of his bones were broken as he crossed picket lines — he called it the cost of doing business.

A small-framed wiry man, and a WWII veteran, my uncle had grown up working the migrant wheat harvest and knew the intrinsic value and dignity of both hard work and ingenuity.

But he never let union goons and the violence they did him prevent him from going in to do whatever it took to feed his family. It would not be proper to call him a fearless man. He knew fear very, very well. He was found dead in the desert.

History is repeating itself and the Progressives/Communists will use violence, hatred, fear, hunger and class warfare to achieve their agenda using whatever means are necessary. This path ALWAYS leads to death, bloodshed and war.

Did You Know Feds Will Temporarily Cut Off All TV and Radio Broadcasts on Nov. 9?

by Buck Sexton If you have ever wondered about the government’s ability to control the civilian airwaves, you will have your answer on November 9th. On that day, federal authorities are going to shut off all television and radio communications simultaneously at 2:00PM EST to complete the first ever test of the national Emergency Alert System (EAS). This isn’t a wild conspiracy theory. The upcoming test is posted on the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau website. Only the President has the authority to activate EAS at the national level, and he has delegated that authority to the Director of FEMA. The test will be conducted jointly by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through FEMA, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS). In essence, the authority to seize control of all television and civilian communication has been asserted by the executive branch and handed to a government agency. The EAS has been around since 1994. Its precursor, the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS), started back in 1963. Television and radio broadcasters, satellite radio and satellite television providers, cable television and wireline video providers are all involved in the system. So this begs the question: is the first ever national EAS test really a big deal? Probably not. At least, not yet. But there are some troubling factors all coming together right now that could conceivably trigger a real usage of the EAS system in the not too distant future. A European financial collapse could bring down U.S. markets. What is now the “Occupy” movement could lead to widespread civil unrest. And there are ominous signs that radical groups such as Anonymous will attempt something major on November 5th- Guy Fawke’s day. Now we know in the event of a major crisis, the American people will be told with one voice, at the same time, about an emergency. All thats left to determine is who will have control of the EAS when that day comes, and what their message will be.

South Korean FTA Is A Job Killer

Today, three trade agreements are schedule to come up for a vote in the House of Representatives that governing trade with Columbia, Panama and South Korea. These bills were orginially part of Pres. Obama's "American Jobs Act". However, Majority Leader Cantor, in an effort to work with the President felt that these trade agreements were actually good parts of Obama's job bill and could pass as stand alone bills.

It has recently came to my attention that the Korean-U.S. Trade Agreement (a.k.a. KORUS) could result in significant job loss in the U.S. Here is why, the Economic Policy Institute reported:

Advocates of free trade agreements, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, rely on deeply flawed projections for estimating the jobs impact of signing new free trade agreements (FTAs). As a result, these projections generally show that signing new FTAs will create jobs in the United States, when in fact doing so may destroy or displace jobs.

This Economic Policy Institute analysis examines the likely jobs impact of signing pending FTAs with Korea and Colombia. It shows, based on past experience, that these trade agreements will increase the U.S.’s trade deficit with both countries. Contrary to the Chamber’s projections, the EPI analysis then shows that the increased trade deficit per se will correspond to the loss of 214,000 jobs in the U.S. by 2015.

If that is not enough for you, another red flag is that President Obama made the promise, according to ApparelNew.Net. that he would not introduce a bill that did not have job training funding.

Obama repeatedly said he would not introduce the three lingering free-trade agreements for congressional approval until money was found for the job-training program, which expired in February. The Senate passed the job-training amendment after it was attached to a bill to renew the General System of Preferences program. The bill and its amendment passed on a 70–27 bipartisan vote.

Usually people need job training when they don't have a job. Now back the the Economic Policy Institute, according to them:

U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) projects this will have a small positive impact on the U.S. trade balance, and “minimal or negligible “ impact on U.S. employment,  history  shows that such trade deals lead to rapidly growing trade deficits and job loss in the United States.

The Charts below compare USITC’s estimates of the impact of the forthcoming free trade agreement with Korea to EPI’s own calculation. Unlike USITC’s forecast of a small positive impact, EPI’s research shows it will increase the U.S. trade deficit with Korea by about $16.7 billion, and displace about 159,000 American jobs within the first seven years after it takes effect.

The USITC has a history of vastly underestimating the negative impacts that free trade agreements have on the U.S. economy. In 1999, it estimated that China’s entry into the World Trade Organization would increase the U.S. trade deficit with China by only $1.0 billion, and have no significant impact on U.S. employment.  In fact, the U.S. trade deficit with China increased by $185 billion between 2001 (when China entered the WTO) and 2008, and 2.4 million U.S. jobs have been displaced or lost. The U.S. trade deficit with Mexico also rose rapidly after the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) took effect in 1994.

These free trade agreements have been taken up by the Republican's in a effort to cooperate with the Obama Administration on a bi-partisan legislation. However, what ever the reason, if you disagree with the free trade agreement, please contact congress at 202-224-3121 let them VOTE NO on KORUS.

Will Tim Kaine Occupy Richmond?

Will Tim Kaine Occupy Richmond?

Now that we know who is helping in the 'Occupy' Tent Cities (see the video below), will Tim Kaine come forward in his support like his friends Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi?

Here is what Obama had to say:

(NBC NY) — President Barack Obama said the growing protest movement against Wall Street, which has been spreading across the nation, is voicing the American public’s widespread frustration about the country’s financial system.

I think it expresses the frustrations that the American people feel,” he said Thursday. “People are frustrated and the protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works.” “The American people understand that not everybody’s been following the rules, that Wall Street is an example of that,” he said.

“That’s going to express itself politically in 2012 and beyond,” he added.

It’s official, Obama has put his stamp of approval on mob rule. As have some Democratic lawmakers(Hmm…O must of finally given them the go ahead). That will surely resonate in 2012 O, you betcha.

Now let’s take a walk down memory lane to see what Obama had to say about Tea Party patriots, shall we?

“Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.” – Barack Obama -Nov. 7 2009

What a hyper-partisan tool.

And here is what Nancy Pelosi said:

“The message of the protesters is a message for establishment every place,” she said. “The focus is on Wall Street and justifiably so. I think that the message of the American people is that no longer… will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street.”

"God bless them for their spontaneity," Pelosi added. "It's independent people coming (together), it's young, it's spontaneous, it's focused, and it's going to be effective.

Palin: "one does not need a title to help"

Sarah Palin finally make a decision, she will not seek the GOP nomination for president in 2012. Here is an excerpt from the email send out by SarahPAC:

My decision is based upon a review of what common sense Conservatives and Independents have accomplished, especially over the last year. I believe that at this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office - from the nation's governors to Congressional seats and the Presidency. We need to continue to actively and aggressively help those who will stop the "fundamental transformation" of our nation and instead seek the restoration of our greatness, our goodness and our constitutional republic based on the rule of law.

From the bottom of my heart I thank those who have supported me and defended my record throughout the years, and encouraged me to run for President. Know that by working together we can bring this country back - and as I've always said, one doesn't need a title to help do it.

I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets, including in the race for President where our candidates must embrace immediate action toward energy independence through domestic resource developments of conventional energy sources, along with renewables. We must reduce tax burdens and onerous regulations that kill American industry, and our candidates must always push to minimize government to strengthen the economy and allow the private sector to create jobs.

Shortly after the email was sent SarahPAC also released this video:

George Allen Address Tea Party Rally in Roanoke, VA

The Tea Party Express rolled through Virginia today which GOP U.S. Senate Candidate George Allen had a chance to address the Crowd.

Currently there are 5 candidates trying to get the Republican Nomination, however Allen enjoys a solid lead in the polls and he has the support of many in the tea party movement.

We cannot allow Tim Kaine and his liberal allies to continue this massive expansion of the federal government. It’s time to take our country back from the big-spending Washington liberals ruining our economy and attacking our freedom.

George Allen understands that power belongs with “We the People.” He will fight to restrain this over-reaching federal government and preserve the individual freedoms and rights that our Founders envisioned. George Allen has a proven track record of fostering a pro-growth environment for job creation and implementing bold reforms needed to ensure the government serves us, not the other way around.

The elections in 2012 will mark a pivotal turning point for our nation. We need to elect George Allen to the U.S. Senate to help save America from failed, big-government policies that are diminishing the promise of the American Dream for ours and future generations. George Allen is a true conservative leader who shares our core principles. We know he will fight for our Virginia values and we are proud to fight with him.

Please join us and add your name to the list of Tea Party Patriots for George Allen.
Just add you name in the comment section and we will add your the list.

Militant Environmentalists Call for Execution

During an interview with "Scholastic Kids" reporters, President Obama informed them that one of the Biggest Challenges that face their Generation is the failed theory of 'Climate Change'. Starting at the :0048 Sec mark he says:

"All though we have made some big improvements in the last 20 to 30 years in making our air clean and our water clean, there are some big challenges around Climate Change...and the temperature of the planet is getting warmer because of the pollution we are sending up into the air, the carbon we are releasing. That is causing changing weather patters in places.... in Florida you may be more vulnerable to Hurricanes, in other areas we have seen more drought. It's affecting people all around the world, so we have to get started in trying to deal with this issue and we have to make sure your generation finds better ways to use energy more efficiently so we are not sending out as much pollution into the air and that is something we are really going to have to focus on."

This explains why the President is pushing to Transform the economyinto a 'Green' Paradise based on saving the Planet from Climate Change instead of trying to save the current Oil based economy.

Do we need a militant movement to save the planet (and ourselves)?”

That was the question posed in recent article on the left-wing site Alternet when it interviewed a group of radical environmentalists who are allegedly endorsing “Decisive Ecological Warfare.” And in order to realize their goal of ridding the planet of industrial civilization — even modern agriculture — the group intends to employ tactics “of both militaries and insurgents the world over.”

One of the activists, Derrick Jensen, allegedly even believes those who destroy the environment should be summarily executed: “If it were up to me, all the people associated with the Gulf oil spill, which is murdering the Gulf, would be executed. That would be part of the function of a state,” said Jensen.

In addition to Jensen, the two other environmentalists interviewed in the article – Lierre Keith, and Aric McBay — have spearheaded a fringe movement called the “Deep Green Resistance” (with a book of the same name) that calls for “direct attacks on infrastructure” and an annihilation of civilization as we know it.

According to the far-left triumvirate, humanity must devolve into living primitive, “indigenous” lifestyles. To this end, Keith targeted a litany of ills that must be stopped, declaring: “We need a culture that is self-consciously oppositional to things like corporate power, capitalism, industrialization and ultimately civilization, because that is the arrangement of power on this planet right now.”

But how does the group intend to implement such extreme goals? That is where the Decisive Ecological Warfare part comes in. According to DGR’s website, their type of warfare has four phases that will allegedly lead up to the “fall of industrial civilization.” The first phase, according to the organization’s charter, is “Networking & Mobilization“ followed by ”Sabotage & Asymmetric Action.” The site lays out the group’s strategy:

Strategy A: Engage in direct militant actions against industrial infrastructure, especially energy infrastructure.
Strategy B: Aid and participate in ongoing social and ecological justice struggles; promote equality and undermine exploitation by those in power.
Strategy C: Defend the land and prevent the expansion of industrial logging, mining, construction, and so on, such that more intact land and species will remain when civilization does collapse.
Strategy D: Build and mobilize resistance organizations that will support the above activities, including decentralized training, recruitment, logistical support, and so on.
Strategy E: Rebuild a sustainable subsistence base for human societies (including perennial polycultures for food) and localized democratic communities that uphold human rights.
The stated goal of DGR is to “deprive the rich of their ability to steal from the poor and the powerful of their ability to destroy the planet. This will require defending and rebuilding just and sustainable human communities nestled inside repaired and restored landbases. This is a vast undertaking but it needs to be said: it can be done. Industrial civilization can be stopped.”

All infrastructure, even modern agriculture did not escape the threesome’s wrath as they apparently consider “sustainable agriculture” an “oxymoron.”

The original Alternet interview with DGR leaders went on to reveal what McBay believes should replace industrial civilization if the movement were successful in carrying out its goals: “If we are talking about a post-industrial society, then I think we have to draw on the examples of traditional, indigenous societies.”

What’s more, the group barely tries to conceal its disdain for the average Americans who probably find DGR’s brand of extremism distinctly repugnant. Keith stated, “I’m not speaking to mainstream America. I don’t know how to talk to those people, and there is no point in me trying.” And Jensen only mirrored the sentiment, saying, “I don’t understand why it is even controversial to talk about dismantling industrial civilization when it has shown itself for 6,000 years to be destroying the planet and to be systemically committing genocide.”

But don’t worry. As Alternet points out, Keith does make a distinction about violence in the book.
“I would urge the following distinctions,” writes Keith, “the violence of hierarchy vs. the violence of self-defense, violence against actual people vs. violence against property, and the violence as self-actualization vs. the violence of political resistance.”

“Just because they mention violence doesn‘t mean it’s the best policy,” Alternet says in its article as a way of trying to salvage readers who might be non-violent. But it is an option.
