My Take on the “New” Tea Party

 There is a new Tea Party in town, The Gateway Grassroots Initiative. They claim they are a “harder, better, faster and stronger conservative grassroots movement.” What does that mean? Sounds like an ego problem.
The Tea Party represents Patriotic Americans who are concerned about their country. Tea Party people want their leaders to follow the Constitution; they want limited Government; less taxes and for Government to be fiscally responsible. Therefore, anyone or any Candidate who possess those attributes can call themselves a Tea Party Patriot.

“Gateway Grassroots Initiative is built around action items (T.I.P.s) with the purpose of promoting conservatism. Their mission is to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize fellow Gateway area citizens to secure a culture consistent with our three core values of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets.” Wasn’t that what the Tea Party stands for?

“Gateway Grassroots Initiative is formed around the ideal that every American citizen has the personal privilege and responsibility of becoming a “minuteman” for their country in various ways. Many are well on their way to doing this, through their blogs, to running for office, becoming a precinct captain, running for their local school board, organizing petitions, fighting for voter integrity. However, Gateway Grassroots Initiative is uninterested in endorsing or singularly promoting candidates, instead choosing to focus on ideas.” GGI calls for “minutemen” to run for public office, yet the GGI will not promote or help them get elected. So, how is that helping the Conservative movement?

“Gateway Grassroots Initiative wants to court the liberal arts, entertainment, and Hollywood crowd. We intend to use pop culture as an ally in this fight.” How does courting the liberal arts, entertainment, and Hollywood crowd going to help the Conservative movement? If anything, the education needs to start with the children before they enter public schools, aka. indoctrination centers. There is no need to court anyone. It is better to stand on principles and have the people come to you.

The GGI's first two initiatives are 1, starting a book club and 2, a blanket drive to keep people warm. OK? How does starting a book club or conducting a blanket drive help Constitutional, limited government, fiscally responsible candidates get elected to office or the Conservative movement? Wouldn’t it be better to have the right people in office so people have jobs and enough money to buy their own blankets?

The goal of the Tea Party should be to support and help elect Conservative candidates who want limited government and who will follow the Constitution. Otherwise, what’s the point? In order to change the direction this country is headed we need to elect Conservative candidates.

Fort Hood, "Workplace Violence?"

Islamic Terrorism and Fort Hood Massacre

DOD's classifies the Fort Hood massacre as "workplace violence." How ridiculous!! However, did you expect anything different coming from this administration and the PC climate that exists today.

When the incident first occurred, the so-called mainstream news media reported that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan a 39-year-old Army psychiatrist at Fort Hood opened fire at the base shooting and killing 13 people, (12 soldiers and a civilian) and wounding several others. Yet, in their reporting they failed to mention that he was a Muslim. Political correctness at it’s best.

Prior to the shooting Hasan shouted "Allahu Akbar!" — an Arabic phrase for "God is great!" 

Some people, along with the media are making excuses for this murdering terrorists claiming Hasan may have suffered from “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder,” even though he was never in combat. They also claimed he was upset about going to Afghanistan although he would not have been on the front line; he was a psychiatrist and would have been behind the lines supposedly counseling troubled soldiers. What about the soldiers that were treated by this psychiatrist? How were they affected?

An imam from a mosque Hasan regularly attended said Hasan, a lifelong Muslim, was a committed soldier, gave no sign of extremist beliefs, regularly wore his uniform at prayers and was looking for a wife. Perhaps he did this terrorist act so he could meet the 72 virgins.

Even President Barack Hussein Obama wants to be politically correct and make excuses for this killer. When the incident first occurred at Fort Hood Obama said in a statement, "We don't know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts." Ironically, he jumped to conclusions regarding the incident with the white police officer from Cambridge and the black professor from Harvard.

Obama said. "It's difficult enough when we lose these brave Americans in battles overseas. It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an Army base on American soil." He's concerned about the soldiers’ safety at home. I'm concerned about their safety wherever they are. They are on our team.

Now, Obama states, “We can not fully know what leads a man to do such a thing,” referring to the radical Muslim jihadist that struck at Fort Hood. Would you expect anything else coming from Obama? After all he said he has empathy for the terrorists who on 9/11 crashed the planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the field in Pennsylvania killing thousands of American citizens. He also said we, the American citizens should have empathy for them. Obama is an embarrassment, an appeaser and is dangerous regarding America's safety. 

The military is also being politically correct and are refraining from revealing that Hasan was a Muslim with anti-American sentiments. Investigators were trying to piece together how and why Hasan allegedly gunned down his comrades.

Here are the facts about Hasan that are known:

Hasan attended the Maryland graduate military medical program and classmates there complained to the faculty about Hasan's "anti-American propaganda," but said a fear of appearing discriminatory against a Muslim student kept officers from filing a formal complaint.Another classmate said Hasan once gave a jarring presentation to students in which he argued the war on terrorism was a war against Islam.

Dr. Val Finnell complained to administrators at the military university about what he considered Hasan's "anti-American" rants. Finnell said, "He at least should have been confronted about these beliefs, told to cease and desist, and to shape up or ship out."

Hasan reported for duty at Fort Hood in July, after working at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington for six years. Though Hasan apparently had problems at Walter Reed, officials at the Fort Hood hospital said they weren't aware of any issues with his job performance. The problem was he is a Muslim and because of political correctness (PC) nothing was done.

Hasan had SOA (Soldiers of Allah) on his business cards.

At least six months prior to the Fort Hood shooting, Hasan came to the attention of law enforcement officials because of Internet postings about suicide bombings and other threats, including posts that equated suicide bombers to soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the lives of their comrades.

Hasan gave away his belongings including his clothing and a copy of the Quran and said his good-byes prior to the massacre.

Before he began shooting Hasan shouted, "Allahu Akbar!" — an Arabic phrase for "God is great!" 

The shooter was a Muslim, had anti-American sentiments and did not want to go to Afghanistan.  

What occurred at Fort Hood was a terrorist act, by a radical Muslim jihadist that Obama refuses to address, as well as the so-called mainstream media and the military. The American people need to wake up and they must remember, the radical Muslims believe Americans are infidels; and the infidels will have to convert to Islam, be enslaved or killed. So, beware of the “Trojan Horse,” Osama bin Laden and the Muslim Brotherhood called for a “Civilization-Jihadist Process,” in which they would destroy the Western civilization from within. They stated we do not want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy. That is what we want. Are Muslims infiltrating America to destroy it from within? 

There are a lot of people that are putting a blind eye to the threat that is out there. Another example is when the six imams who were acting suspiciously on a US Airways flight 300 in November 2006 and were removed from the plane. The imams were seated throughout the plane. Two imams who claimed two first-class seats said their tickets were upgraded. However, the gate agent told police that when the imams asked to be upgraded, they were told no such seats were available. Nevertheless, the two men were seated in first class when they were removed. Three of the men asked for seat-belt extenders, although the men were not oversized. The flight attendant said, rather than attach the extensions, the men placed the straps and buckles on the cabin floor. Witnesses told law enforcement that the men spoke in Arabic and English, criticizing the war in Iraq and President Bush, and talking about al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. According to witnesses, police reports and aviation security officials, the imams displayed other suspicious behavior. Therefore, they were removed from the plane.

The imams felt profiled, humiliated, and discriminated against by their treatment, and subsequently sued the airline with the assistance of CAIR, Council on American Islamic Relations. CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. The case was settled and a CAIR spokesman stated, “The settlement of this case is a clear victory for justice and civil rights over fear and the phenomenon of 'flying while Muslim’ in the post-9/11 era.”

Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, Texas Democrat, said the September 11 terrorist attacks "cannot be permitted to be used to justify racial profiling, harassment and discrimination of Muslim and Arab Americans."

I believe these imams were testing the system to see what they can get away with. They also wanted to make people reluctant to report suspicious activity by Muslims in the future for fear of being called a racist and a religious bigot.

More recently, there were the two Muslims who made a test run on an airplane with items packed in their luggage resembling explosive devices along with knives and box cutters. They did not deem the incident as an act of terror. Did they at least put them on the “No Fly” list?

President Obama said, “The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam.” Unfortunately, Islam is at war with America and the American people must remain vigilant, with or without the help of the Obama Administration, the military or the so-called Mainstream Media.

Ed Martin, Conservative for MO District 2

 Ed Martin is the true conservative in the US Congressional race for the newly formed 2nd District in Missouri and he deserves to be supported. The Democrat/Statist’s policies and rhetoric are detrimental to this country. Being concerned with the direction this country is headed Ed Martin wanted to do something about it. Therefore, Ed Martin ran against Russ Carnahan with a Conservative message for the Third Congressional District of Missouri in the 2010 election when no establishment Republican wanted to do so. The Third Congressional District of Missouri in 2010 favored the Democrats.  He came up a little short of votes to win on election night.
Why should a candidate run for office? Should they run only if they are in a secure district, hoping for an easy victory or should they run because the opposing party's policies and rhetoric are detrimental to this country? The establishment GOP did not run against the Incumbent Russ Carnahan. Why? Why did they not challenge Russ Carnahan or Dick Gephardt in the past? Was it because they never wanted to challenge the Democrats and the Status quo? Was it because it would have been a tough election? Was it because that was Dick Gephardt's District, and the Democrat/Statists owned and were entitled to that fiefdom.    
Now, the newly formed 2nd District favors a Republican Candidate and Ann Wagner enters the race. Why didn’t Ann Wagner challenge Russ Carnahan or Dick Gephardt in prior elections? Ed Martin is a Conservative and did the leg work in the previous election and his positions have not changed, therefore he deserves to be supported. There is much work to be done to get America back on track and it starts with electing common sense conservatives like Ed Martin to be the people’s representatives.  

Where is the loyalty?

Ed Martin is the true conservative in the US Congressional race for the newly formed 2nd District in Missouri. Ed Martin was endorsed by the St. Louis Tea Party in the 2010 election, however this time there are factions in the Tea Party who no longer support Ed Martin, but instead are supporting Ann Wagner. Whether Ann is a Conservative or not, is not the point; my question is, “Where is the loyalty?” Ed did the leg work when he ran against Russ Carnahan with a Conservative message for the Third Congressional District of Missouri in the 2010 election when no establishment Republican wanted to do so, because the Third Congressional District of Missouri favored the Democrats. In the end he came up a little short of votes to win the election. Ed is now running in the newly formed 2nd, which favors the Republicans and his positions have not changed. So why would someone who supported Ed in the previous campaign no longer want to support him now? What are their reasons? This country is in dire straights and there is much work to be done to get America back on track. It starts with electing common sense conservatives like Ed Martin to be the people’s representatives.
