If it wasn't for the Tea Party
By Armand C. Hale
July 26, 2011

I am convinced if the "Tea Party" grassroots phenomenon was not in existence today, the American people would have no say in Washington politics, period. The Left (Obama, Reid, the DNC & MSM) wants to spend, spend, spend our money. The old guard R.I.N.O's in Congress just want to get along and play by the rules. What fools! And who gets left out in the cold and broke? The American tax payer. Our money, guns, and religious freedom have been chipped away since the 1930's. A great message you want to hear right? If you are tired of hearing about it, do something about it! I will keep screaming it in your ear till you do! Get it? (JMJ)

This is the most dangerous idea yet!

Check this idea out. A "Super Congress" composed of members of both chambers and both parties and be granted extraordinary new powers. And guess who came up with this plan? Marxist senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) and old guard RINO Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) They have no desire to do the will of the people. They want to do their own wills? Power, power and more power! What say you? Are you going to sit on your butts on this?

Senomyx and The PepsiCo Boycott

The PepsiCo Boycott — Brief Background

PepsiCo has signed agreements with biotechnology company, Senomyx, to develop artificial flavor enhancers for their beverages. Under the agreement, PepsiCo will pay for the research and development, plus royalties to Senomyx for every product sold using their flavor enhancers. But Senomyx is doing that research and development using human embryonic kidney (HEK-293) obtained from an elective abortion. All efforts to dissuade both Senomyx and PepsiCo from using this technology have fallen on deaf ears, resulting in our launch of an official boycott of all PepsiCo beverages and beverage subsidiaries that they own. See our one page flyer that lists their products, background and mailing information at

This is the same company that trains its new employees that homosexuality is an acceptable lifestyle. Way to go PepsiCo! Check out these 2 links. EWTN forum Senomyx partners respond

Sign Debt Petition and Ask Your Friends

From Tea

Dear Patriot,

Together, we have forced the Republicans in Congress to negotiate on our behalf instead of the special interests. We cannot let them falter now. They need to hear from us as these important negotiations come to a close. Your voice will be added to the more than 100,000 letters and emails that have already been sent to our elected representatives who are on the verge of making Obama, the biggest spending president of all time, address spending! This is against his radical socialist ideology and it is up to Republicans to stand strong! You are the reason that they continue to stand strong.

If Debt Is The Enemy Then There ARE Traitors Among Us

What could you do with 71.8 Billion dollars a month? Do you trust Liberals to really cut spending? to cut debt? If debt is a bad as Obama says it is- and it is- then why does he, the Liberals, DNC & R.I.N.O., & MSM want MORE debt?! Read this topic

Read what the text of the First Amendment actually says and what it actually limits:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The language is obvious. The limits are only placed on our government. It is not extended to the private sector. The entire Constitution deals specifically with our government. Every power not given to the government (Federal, state, or local) is left up to the individual.

Obama Declares War on Marriage, Federalism, and Religious Liberty

From Brian S. Brown, President

National Organization for Marriage

With Senate hearings on the repeal of DOMA yesterday, President Obama and the hard-left core of the Democratic Party in Washington declared war on marriage, on federalism, on democracy and on religious liberty. Do you think I exaggerate? As Maggie said in National Review yesterday, the chilling of our First Amendment rights has commenced, in the name of a faux equality. Read here

Look into the eyes of Ruth Sheldon, a 65-year-old town clerk in the little town of Granby, New York, who resigned a job with a $32,000 a year salary plus health insurance, because New York politicians have threatened to criminally prosecute any clerk who cannot, in good conscience, sign a homosexual wedding license. "I'm standing on the word of God," she says. Indeed she is, with honor. Clink the link. The eyes of Ruth Sheldon

As the new Archbishop of Philadelphia, Charles Chaput, said in his very first press conference in his new position this week, "this is the issue of our time." Sign and get involved!

Lastly, from blogger Errol Phillips

"If Boehner caves ... he must know he will in the primaries next year. He will not be re-elected because the vote will be split and the Dems will pick up a seat. It's called a strategic loss for the better."
