The First Tea Party Principles Speech Contest was a Great Success 
 

For those of you who missed it, we had five great performances and speeches from five amazing high school and college students.  The judges had a difficult task to rank the speeches, but in any contest, someone has to win.  Maybe there is hope for America’s future after all.

And the results are:

**The contestants’ families for their support.

Tea Party Principles:
Personal freedom with constitutionally limited government.
Economic freedom with opportunity for all and favoritism for none.
A debt free future through fiscal responsibility today.

We believe the Tea Party principles were an essential part of making America great, free and prosperous and are essential to restoring and keeping America great, free and prosperous.  These principles are antithetical to the big government ruling class, which is why they attack the Tea Party movement so vigorously and viciously, but always without mentioning the Tea Party principles.

******************************

Here is a video of all of the speeches.  We will post videos of the individual speeches soon.

Take Action: Save the Supreme Court and our Constitution

If Obama is allowed to replace Justice Scalia and pack the Supreme Court with another liberal activist judge, there will be 5 vote majority on the Supreme Court to legislate the liberal agenda from the bench.  They will be soft on crime and terrorism, repeal the 2nd Amendment, restrict religious liberty, restrict freedom of speech, allow the EPA to trample property rights and the free enterprise system, and allow Dem presidents to rewrite and ignore our laws including immigration laws.  Five liberal activist justices would uphold Obama’s executive amnesty. 

How can the Supreme Court repeal the 2nd Amendment?  The four liberal justices have voted that the 2nd Amendment provides no right for Americans to own guns.  With a fifth liberal activist judge, they will so “interpret” the 2nd Amendment effectively repealing it. 

In addition, the current Supreme Court made up a Constitutional right to gay marriage.  What new Constitutional rights would five liberal justices make up?

Rep Senators are under heavy pressure to cave and approve Obama’s liberal, activist nominee.  The national Tea Party Patriots is trying to buck up Rep Senators, and we can help. 

1.    Go to this web page listing key Rep senators on the Judiciary Committee.  Call their offices and urge them to hold firm with No Hearings No Votes and/or click on their Twitter handles, and if you are logged into Twitter, a prewritten Tweet will appear doing the same.  http://bit.ly/1TeC7Nb   In Tweets and Facebook posts, please use #NoHearingsNoVotes

2.   Even easier, please sign the petition and check the box giving permission to send your signature to your legislators.   https://saveourconstitution.act.teapartypatriots.org/

3.  Download the toolkit with info and sample letters, posts and emails to the editor and senators at the above link and write, post and email away.  https://tpp-resources.s3.amazonaws.com/toolkits/SCOTUS%20Nomination%20Toolkit.pdf

If you are a group leader, please encourage your members to take these steps to defend our Constitution.

Dems for Sean Flynn

Dems for Sean Flynn published on 2 Comments on Dems for Sean Flynn

DEMS FOR SEAN FLYNN

Sean Flynn is running against Paul Chabot in Congressional District 31 as a “Rep.”

Please see the following list of Dems donating to Sean Flynn and in particular Barbara Schiffrin who donated 10s if not 100s of thousands of dollars to the Dems.

We confirmed the information is accurate with Paul Chabot and Sean Flynn. 

Sean Flynn also donated $8000.00 to Michigan Dem Congressman now Senator Gary Peters.

At the Redlands Republican Women Federated meeting on April 15, Sean Flynn said he opposes amnesty, but he favors legalizing illegal immigrants, letting them legally live and work in America, and then apply for citizenship after 10 years.  In my book, that’s amnesty.

The Redlands Tea Party Patriots cabinet recommends Paul Chabot.  By a supermajority vote, the San Bernardino County Republican Central Committee endorsed Paul Chabot. Paul’s many other endorsements include the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

******************************

Tim is running against #EstRep Paul Cook who voted for the RYAN-PELOSI BUDGET and the new Fed.Ed law “EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT” [#ESSA] aka #CommonCore 2.0.

How bad is the RYAN-PELOSI BUDGET

Among many terrible provisions, the Ryan-Pelosi budget funds Obama bringing 300,000 unvettable Muslims to America in 2016 and steals $150 Billion from Social Security to prop up the widely abused disability program that for many has become permanent unemployment insurance.
http://redlandsteaparty.net/RTP/paul-ryan-aka-boehner-3-0-and-the-est-reps-give-america-and-conservatives-their-middle-finger/

How bad is the “EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT“?  Obama’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan said:

“I am stunned how much better it ended up than either [House or Senate] bill going into conference.  I had a Democratic Congressman say to me that it is a miracle – he is literally never seen anything like it…[I]f you look at the substance of what is there… Embedded in the law are the values that we promoted and proposed forever.  The core of our agenda from Day One, that is all in there….  For the first time in our nation’s history, that is the letter of the law.”

Among many terrible things, #ESSA purports to take away parents’ right to opt their children out of #CommonCore tests.  [However, parents still have that right even if the Federal government sanctions states if too many parents opt their children out.]

Tim Donnelly would not vote for the Ryan-Pelosi budget or the “Every Student Succeeds Act” no matter what the Rep leadership or lobbyists promised him or threatened him with.

Paul Cook did what leadership told him to do.

You may have heard Paul Cook’s commercials on AM 590 or other stations.  Did you notice they talk a lot about Paul Cook’s admirable service in Vietnam, but not so much about Paul Cook’s record in Congress.

 

So join Tim and the cast of “Night with the Stars” in singing “so long, farewell” to Paul Cook.

THE REAL OBAMACARE DEATH SPIRAL [16.04.23]

Stop this train wreck – I wanna get off! The news about ‪#‎Obamacareinsurance just keeps getting worse – insurers leaving, huge rate increases and narrower networks coming. But here’s the real #Obamacare death spiral – tax credits go up with premiums. This is crazy. The national debt is already $19.2 trillion. Every cent put to Obamacare subsidies is borrowed. How can we keep doing this? We can keep throwing more and more money at the bottomless pit of Big Government, Big Insurance, and Big Healthcare, or change course and move in the direction of simplicity, catastrophic insurance, and patient-centered reform. ‪#‎WrongDirection

Federal spending on major health programs (Medicaid, Medicare, ‪#‎ACA) now bigger than Social Security

#ACA ‘stability’ can only be purchased at price of repeated rate hikes, narrower networks and higher out-of-pocket.

“It’s official. The Obamacare insurance company business model does not work.”

“Why is this happening? Because nowhere near enough healthy people are signing up to pay for the sick.”

#OBAMACARE MISSES ESTIMATE FOR PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE BY ONLY 24 MILLION PEOPLE.

–Fewer people have private health insurance than the CBO estimated would have private health insurance without Obamacare by 9 million.
–But not to worry, 2X more than estimated are on taxpayer paid for health insurance, Medicaid and CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program).

“In 2013, the CBO projected that, without Obamacare, 186 million people would be covered by private health insurance in 2016—160 million on employer-based plans, 26 million on individually purchased plans. The CBO now says that, with Obamacare, 177 million people will be covered by private health insurance in 2016—155 million on employer-based plans, 12 million on plans bought through Obamacare’s government-run exchanges, and 9 million on other individually purchased plans (plus a rounding error of 1 million).

In other words, it would appear that a net 9 million people have lost their private health plans, thanks to Obamacare—with a net 5 million people having lost employer-based plans and a net 4 million people having lost individually purchased plans.

None of this is to say that fewer people have “coverage” under Obamacare—it’s just not private coverage. In 2013, the CBO projected that 34 million people would be on Medicaid or CHIP (the Children’s Health Insurance Program) in 2016. The CBO now says that 68 million people will be on Medicaid or CHIP in 2016—double its earlier estimate. It turns out that Obamacare is pretty much a giant Medicaid expansion.”

Can We Trust Facebook?

Can We Trust Facebook? published on No Comments on Can We Trust Facebook?

freedom of speechZuckerberg 01

CAN WE TRUST FACEBOOK?

Facebook and other social media are a very important media and means of communication and they are becoming more so.  They are run by liberals, and liberals generally do not favor freedom of speech for people they disagree with.

Facebook publically promised:

“We encourage any and all candidates, groups, and voters to use our platform to share their views on the election and debate the issues. We as a company are neutral — we have not and will not use our products in a way that attempts to influence how people vote.”

However, this article gives plenty of reasons to be skeptical. “Why There Is No Reason to Believe Facebook’s Promise Not to Influence Voters Against Trump”
http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2016/04/16/facebook-voters-influence-trump/

FIRST, we should seek to hold Facebook and Mr. Zuckerberg to their word.  One of Alinsky’s rules is make the other side live up to its principles.  We can do the same.

If fact, if they allow us to communicate freely on Facebook, I can live with biased feeds.  I don’t rely on Facebook’s content.  I get information and news from the sources I choose.

SECOND, Facebook is a very useful platform for communication and advocacy.  I have not encountered any content control or restrictions on Facebook.  Virtually of the activists I work with use Facebook. 

As long as it serves our cause, we should use Facebook even though it’s run by liberals.

THIRD, if Facebook violates its public promise, Facebook opens itself to potential legal action for fraud and unfair and deceptive business practices, even if they could legally be as biased as they want to be without that promise.

FOURTH, it’s above my pay grade, but conservatives should start or be prepared to start our own social media platform.

FIFTH, Twitter has suffered financially in part because of its liberal political bias including “shadow banning” prominent conservatives. 

Usually, liberals put their business, money and profits ahead of their cause, and Facebook may do the same

SIXTH, if Facebook bans opposing political views, someone will probably try to assert Pruneyard Shopping Center v. Robins against Facebook and/or other social media platforms.

In Pruneyard, the California Supreme Court based on the California Constitution held people have a right to gather signatures in a private shopping center.  The US Supreme Court upheld the ruling as not violating the US Constitution.  The California Supreme Court “reasoned” that the shopping center had become like the town square of old, an important social gathering location.

13 states and the EU rejected Pruneyard.  CO, NJ, MA and Puerto Rico approved it with reservations.

Facebook has become a far more important “gathering place” than any shopping center.

Assuming California courts apply Pruneyard to Facebook and/or other social media platforms, what would the geographic reach of the ruling be?

Here is an article on the subject.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pruneyard_Shopping_Center_v._Robins

SEVENTH, Obama, with the Rep acquiescence, is working on handing control of the Internet to a still undefined international organization.  That will inevitably lead to content control and censorship. 

The last thing the #RulingClass in America or anywhere else wants is the ability of the people to communicate freely outside of government control.

This may be a greater threat to freedom of expression that anything Facebook does.

THEREFORE,

–We should use Facebook and other liberal social media platforms as long as they are useful to our cause. 

–We should monitor Facebook and other liberal social media platforms for bias and censorship and “raise hell” if and when we find it to make Facebook other liberal social media platforms pay as heavy a price as possible for such conduct.

–Conservatives with the financial and technical ability should develop alternatives to Facebook other liberal social media platforms.

–We should encourage to Reps to make a stand for Internet freedom including cutting off funds for handing control of the Internet to countries like Russia, China and Saudi Arabia.

–We may need to use non Internet communication for political activism.  Americans were able to keep our republic for 200+ years before the Internet.
