“Confirm thy soul in self-control, thy liberty in law”- from “America, the Beautiful”
President Obama’s unconstitutional “executive order” that makes blank paper of existing immigration law is, sad to say, only the latest example of the lawlessness that characterizes his administration. The pattern is too well established to allow any other conclusion but that he is at war with our form of government and therefore with the liberty and equality which is its chief object.
As overwhelming as the evidence is of presidential defiance of the Constitution and the laws, it is not an easy thing to say this about any president. My object here is not only to make that unpleasant case against the President but to demonstrate just how devastating is the combined effect of Obama’s systematic lawlessness for the American way of life.
Derry, Aguilar, Ramos, Redlands, Hypocrisy and Truth
I am amused at the phony and hypocritical moral outrage from Neil Derry’s opponents. They are all on their high moral horses expressing their moral outrage about Neil Derry’s now expunged misdemeanor plea bargain for not reporting one $5000 campaign contribution.
The same people are strangely silent regarding the following dishonesty, misfeasance, malfeasance and corruption:
San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael Ramos was fined by the California Fair Political Practices Commission in 2009 for a $10,000 slush fund involving his wife. She now leads the “California Homeowners Association PAC” formed specifically to attack Neil. [For some reason neither Michael Ramos nor is wife were criminally prosecuted.]
Wayne Stair, a former 1st Centennial Bank executive when the bank went belly up, now heads the “Redlands Committee Against Neil Derry.”
“For Pete’s Sake,” Mayor Aguilar was vice president of Arrowhead Credit Union when it was fined for not reporting $100,000 in campaign contributions. [For some reason no one at Arrowhead Credit Union was criminally prosecuted.]
“For Pete’s Sake,” Mayor Aguilar was vice president of Arrowhead Credit Union when it was seized by Federal regulators.
“For Pete’s Sake,” Mayor Aguilar claimed at the debate he did not know whether unions were making independent expenditures for him. If you do not believe that statement, Aguilar bald faced lied to voters’ faces.
While the liberal Redlands establishment claim Neil Derry will make Redlands like San Bernardino, the current city council is planning to build more low income housing in Redlands like San Bernardino did, as this paper reported.
Unless you believe 70% of the wear and tear on Redlands streets is from trash trucks, the current city council violated Prop 218 by raising trash fees to pay for street repairs without a vote of the people. Even if that was technically legal, the current city council could have put a tax increase on the ballot and asked the people’s consent. However, whether or not the current city council acted illegally, the council chose to circumvent a vote of the people. [As candidate Jane Dreher said at the city council candidate forum, what if the people vote no?]
Every Redlands voter should also ask why San Manuel tribal leaders are donating tens of thousands of dollars their casino profits to the anti Neil Derry PACs and donated to all of the other city council candidates, other than John Montgomery.
Every Redlands voter should ask why an out of town developer is also donating money to the anti-Neil Derry PACs.
Are the San Manuel tribal leaders and the out of town developer altruistically spending their money to help Redlands elect the best people to the city council or do they want something in exchange?
Every Redlands voter should also ask who is making Redlands more like San Bernardino.
A vote for Neil Derry (and John Montgomery) on Nov. 4 is a vote for truly honest government, a vote for fiscal responsibility, a vote against more tax and fee increases, and a vote to change Redlands for the better.
A vote for Paul Chabot is a vote for the same in Washington.

The Redlands Tea Party Patriots is pleased to recommend and endorse John Montgomery for Redlands City Council.
Our October 13 newsletter stated:
“The only two members running for the RCC who don’t have San Manuel casino campaign contributions are Neil Derry and John Harrison Montgomery (Redlands small business owner). Please make those two the only two you pick for Redlands City Council. As of Oct. 13, the Redlands Tea Party Patriots are adding John Harrison Montgomery to our voters guide for ballot recommendations.”
[We wonder what the San Manuel tribal leaders want from the other candidates if they are elected.]
“And John’s tattoos have made a good impression on us: He is taking a no new taxes pledge — a position that strongly aligns with our values of economic freedom, personal freedom, and a debt-free future.”
John also submitted the following letter to the editor, that unfortunately was not published, but you can see why we wholeheartedly recommend John Montgomery for Redlands City Council.
“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.” –Thomas Jefferson
“As Jefferson, one of the brightest minds in our history states, a good government is a wise and frugal one that does not take the food from the mouths of the people who have earned it.As a political outsider, people may believe that I do not have the political knowhow to navigate the minefield of local politics. The point that many miss is that it is not about POLITICS; it is about common sense….as one who has started several companies, created jobs, and grown businesses, I know what it means to manage and help others to be successful. To this end, it will be one of my most important campaign promises that I will not vote for or approve any new taxes for the people of Redlands. In fact, it will be my vow to do all that I can to try and shrink the taxes and burdens that we ask of our residents. While we do all need to do our part to pay our share…it should be just that…our fair share. Government tends to place the responsibility for every new idea they have on the back of the taxpayer and that is just wrong and is irresponsible governance. As a businessman, when I have wanted to expand my existing business (infrastructure) or start a new business, I have not raised the prices on my customers to do this. I have grown my business, looked for new ideas to increase my customer base, etc. so that I have more capital coming into my business. Governing is no different. If we want new programs, then we need to look at methods (such as increasing businesses in our city) to bring additional revenue into the city. Putting more fees and taxes onto the backs of the working men and women and the already overtaxed middleclass is not the answer.”
