Tea Party—The Documentary!


Liberty’s March Has A New Generation of Patriots

The Tea Party movement of 2009 shocked the political establishment, the nation at large and left a big media machine dizzy in its wake. How did it happen? Where did it come from? Now, experience the story of the movement that’s driving our national dialogue against big government spending and a Constitution under assault. “Tea Party: The Documentary Film” follows the struggles of five grassroots individuals and their transformation from home town rally goers and rally organizers to national activists in the 912 March on Washington. In the process, the film reveals what is at the heart of this nationwide surge of civic engagement – a return to and respect for a Constitutionally limited government, personal responsibility and fiscal restraint at the Federal level.

The Characters…

NATE Nate, a young black man from Detroit, Michigan, voted for Barack Obama in 2008 from an upbringing that taught him to mistrust America because of the color of his skin. As a Libertarian with a paradigm shift and a newfound understanding of the nation he loves, he is risking the anger of family and friends by joining the march against a President’s policies that would victimize the very people he loves the most.

JACK Jack is a father of two young children, a little league baseball coach and a health insurance agent. He risks losing his job under current healthcare reform. He is a Democrat turned Constitutionalist and the younger brother of a Vietnam soldier who is marching for his children, his brother’s legacy and the future of the America he believes in.

JENNY BETH In 2008, she and her husband lost a multi-million dollar business, were forced into bankruptcy and home foreclosure. Nine months later, she is working as a national leader in the grassroots tea party movement, organizing events and taking her message to the steps of the National Mall with the company of millions behind her.

WILLIAM William is a patriot renaissance man, a pastor, colonial re-enactor, painter, poet, Vietnam veteran, former Pentagon and Secret Service employee and a man of the march. He can be outrageous and funny or somber and reflective, full of antics and unpredictability. He marched for the Vietnam Memorial during the Reagan Era and this time, his journey back to Washington, DC leads him to the front lines of the march down Pennsylvania Avenue on September 12.

DR. FRED SHESSEL Dr Fred Shessel is a doctor moved to action against a government threatening to undermine the doctor-patient relationship with suffocating beaucracy and increased taxpayer spending. After years practicing as a highly respected urologist, he is stepping out of the hospital corridors to lead an army of fellow physicians into the halls of power and corruption and fight for his patients on Capitol Hill.

DAVE Dave is a 20-something young professional studying to become a doctor. He spent time as a fashion model in Milan and beyond and is sick of big government and the apathy within his own generation. He is now moved to action in the tea party movement by a government gone too far.

Talkin’ With ‘Turf: Los Angeles 9-12 Rally Video

Yes We Can—Be A Communist Nation?


Yes We Can–Be A Communist Nation?

Communist?  Think that’s too strong a word?  Even the Russians are sitting up and taking notice of what is happening to our country.  Communism?  They know it when they see it.  They’ve lived it.

We’re barely six months into the first term of a new presidency.  Six months, and look what has happened to us.  The government has expanded and grown, tentacles reaching into private business.  Redistributing wealth with incredible taxation, enslaving the nation with unsustainable debt….or how about the GM take over? General Motors? Now it’s Government Motors.

See this from our friends across the red sea at Pravada, a Russian Magazine:

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

“The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.”

Even the Russians know what this is, and it isn’t freedom.  The President of the United States now has the self appointed power to hire and fire us from our jobs.  Build them up or destroy them according to whim.

The Democrat controlled Congress is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses

This is not the change America needs.  Stand Up!  Make a noise!  Had enough?  I have!

American capitalism gone with a whimper—From a Russian Column at Pravada:

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.

Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK’s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “freeman” whimper.

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

Santa Monica Pier Tax Protest—Tea Party!!


Santa Monica Pier Tax Protest

I attended the Santa Monica Pier Tax Protest this afternoon, it was a blast!  We had 1,500 people there by 3:00 and the numbers continued to grow through the afternoon. In Van Nuys they had 3,000 protesters and in Sacramento they had 8,000 with many thousands more among the over 800 registered tax protest parties across the United States today.

In California we’ve suffered through the largest state tax increase in history, on top of the national tax increases.  Now we’re being asked to convene for a special election to vote in yet ANOTHER set of tax increases—-and this amid reports that yet again the state is expecting new deficits.

It’s time to clean house up there in  Sacramento.  After that, D.C.!

American Flag Unwelcome at Tax Day Tea Party in Sacramento

News from CRI:  As Tea Party patriots rallied outside the California State Capitol to oppose the increasing burden of government, Capitol security forces assured that no sign of disagreement would enter the Capitol building, including American flags.

Capitol Resource Institute distributed hundreds of the flags to those assembled and was shocked to find out that the flags had to be discarded before entering the state house. “We could not believe that they would prohibit the American flag in the Capitol,” said Karen England, Executive Director of CRI. “I am still not clear why this is prohibited. The guard at the door originally cited safety concerns, but after consulting with his superiors the rationale became a general prohibition on signs and banners.”

This is not the first time that CRI has had a run in with Capitol security over displays of patriotism. This past summer, students from CRI’s popular City on the Hill leadership camp stopped in the Capitol rotunda to sing the National Anthem. This has become a tradition with no opposition until this last year. Armed security demanded that the students stop singing. After a strongly worded letter from attorneys at Pacific Justice Institute, the students were able to return and sing without interruption two days later.

“I want to believe that this is just government out of control,” said England. “But first the National Anthem and now the flag are banned from the Capitol building. It is hard not to conclude that there is an aversion to patriotism.”

Tea Party Today!


Repeal the Pork!  Cut Taxes! Where is your tea party??


Tea Party Today!  I’ll be at the L.A. Tax Protest.  See you there!

See this from RightSoup: “The American people are fed up with Washington’s irresponsible spending spree,” said Newt Gingrich, General Chairman of American Solutions. “There are better solutions than big government and higher taxes to create jobs and get the economy moving again.”

“American Solutions is proud to partner with the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition to communicate this message to our elected officials,” Gingrich added.

The NTPC was formed February 20, 2009 by three grassroots organizations: Dontgo Movement (Dontgo), Top Conservatives on Twitter (TCOT), and Smart Girl Politics (SGP).

“These Tea Party events offer a highly visible point-of-focus for the burgeoning movement of spontaneous public demonstrations. Whether people live in New York or Wichita, they can find an April 15th event nearby and come out to voice their opposition to the irresponsible spend-borrow-tax policies of the Obama Administration and politicians in Congress,” said Michael Patrick Leahy, founder of TCOT.

“The purpose of our Coalition is to help people organize simultaneous, nationwide events,” he explained.

Organizers are working to bring together a broad coalition of conservatives, Blue Dog Democrats, independents, and Libertarians to urge members of Congress to stop their reckless big government spending or we will vote them out of office.

Round 1 was the February 27 Nationwide Chicago Tea Party, which was organized in less than a week by the NTPC, and brought together over 30,000 activists in 50 cities. The theme of Round 1 was “Repeal the Pork or Retire: Our Message to Congress.”

The website to participate in a local tea party, or to start an April 15 tea party in your area, can be found at http://www.taxdayteaparty.com . The theme of Round 2 is “Repeal the Pork, Cut Taxes.”

“To me, one of the most remarkable things is that none of the three Coalition organizations existed a year ago,” said Stacy Mott, founder of Smart Girl Politics. The “oldest” group is Dontgo, founded 8 months ago in the Summer of 2008.

“All three of our groups focus on rapid-response citizen activism. We use the latest technology tools to coordinate the simultaneous activities of tens of thousands – and soon to be hundreds of thousands – of activists across the country,” Mott said.

Eric J. Odom, founder of Dontgo Movement and technology expert added, “By using Twitter, Ning sites, Facebook, Blackberries, phone conference calls, blogs and other Internet-based tools, we have been able to coordinate the volunteer efforts of tens of thousands of Americans across the country at lightning speed. I find this proficiency with technology combined with passion and action at the grassroots level truly inspiring.”

Perhaps the most unique aspect of the grassroots Coalition is that none of the groups have an actual “headquarters.” Instead, the Nationwide Tea Party movement is located around the kitchen tables, laptops, tweets and blogs of the hundreds of thousands of men and women across the country. These everyday people give their time and treasure to the noble cause to which their hearts and minds are devoted: returning limited government to the United States of America.

Los Angeles Tea Party Event!


TCOT Chicago Tea Party Across the Nation!


With all that is happening nationwide, and statewide to counter our basic freedoms, I felt the need to pass this information along.   –Beetle Blogger

Plan to participate in this important, peaceful event to protest the Obama Administration’s and our the US Congresses’ economic policies and massive spending bills! Many of our politicians and elected officials have become so removed from reality, they do not even listen to us anymore! It is time we stand up as citizens of this great land and let our voices be heard! This is our country too!

Citizens of the Greater Los Angeles Area:

Let’s take part in the Nationwide Chicago Tea Party

Gather at the very edge of the Santa Monica Pier, to say to our local, state and federal governments:
Enough is enough!!!

If you are fed up with LA City Hall, Capital Hill in Sacramento, and/or DC’s waste of you hard earned tax dollars, join us at the Santa Monica Pier on Friday morning, 9:00 AM.
