3 Strikes and You are OUT, or rather, 3 C’s and you are Put Away for good. Scott Brown WINS

Obama supporters ought to pay attention to the three strike rule.

He has failed in these three C’s:

Chicago Olympics
Copenhagen Climate Change
Coakely in Massachusetts

The Scott Heard Around the World

The Scott Heard Around the World

Democrats may want to take a look at these three C’s and realize that everything Obama touches turns to carp (that’s another C, if you are counting). Obama has now thrown Martha Coakley under the bus, saying she ran a crappy campaign.  Was that really the reason why, for the first time in 50 years, MA, a liberal, heavily Democratic state, elected a Republican?  Could Obama’s push for healthcare, the midnight votes behind close doors, the lack of transparency and the representatives (such as Pete Visclosky) openly stating that they do not listen to their constituents?  Could it be that the people are fed up with politicians not listening to the will of the people?
People are upset with the democ-rats position of party before people.  MA was a hotbed of political shell gaming and shyster rule changes.  Our own little pro-Dem newspaper, The Times reports:

This Boston Globe article
sums up what happened. After Ted Kennedy died, the state Senate rammed
through a bill to change the law so that the Democratic governor could
appoint an interim successor. This came a mere five years after
Democrats rejected the very same bill, which in this case would have
allowed then-Gov. Mitt Romney to appoint an interim successor in the
event that John Kerry won the presidency.

That’s the subtext of “the people’s seat” comments that you heard during Brown’s acceptance speech.

The Democrats just changes the rules at will in order to keep a democrat in the seat, then changes them back when they need to pull another dirty trick.

The tea party patriots,I believe, played a large role in assisting this upset. Patriots from around the globe sent donations to Brown, phone banked for him, flew and drove to MA to campaign, watch the polls. Patriots want change, want their country back and they flexed their muscle.  I would say that come this November,  Evan Bayh and Pete Visclosky may get a run for their money.

James Simpson over at American Thinker brings up some good points regarding the Democrats and their lose to Scott Brown:

The real problem is that Coakley’s campaign defines what the Democratic Party has become today: arrogant, boorish, incomprehensibly ignorant and downright thuggish. Former Vermont Governor and Presidential candidate Howard Dean, for example, reacted to Brown’s victory by saying that now Democrats have to get tough, and not “deal with Republicans anymore.” Stunning. So that’s what we’ve been witnessing all year, with Democrats violating Senate rules, holding closed-door meetings, locking Republicans out of discussions, rejecting outright any Republican proposals and violating their own promises of “transparency.” But they haven’t been tough enough. Simply amazing.

But it was even more than that. People have had enough. We have had enough of bald-faced lies from Democrats. We have had enough of big spending bills being disingenuously presented as “deficit reducers.” We have had enough of massive government programs guaranteed to cripple the economy and lose jobs. We have had enough of ever more intrusive government attempting to take over every aspect of our daily lives. We have had enough of blatant corruption and coddling of terrorists. We have had enough of radicals attempting to ram their virulently anti-American agenda down our throats and calling us “domestic terrorists” for objecting.
This election is a game changer. Make no mistake about it. Not only is the U.S. Senate in play for Republicans in November, but so is the House of Representatives, state legislatures and governor’s mansions. Last night, Sarah Palin said to Greta Van Susteren on Fox News ”We just witnessed a wicked political pivot… This is a tidal wave sweeping the country…” She is right.

I ask that those beholding to the Republican Party do not see this as people swaying to their side of the aisle. People are tired of politicians that covet their  Party over the People and that holds true for the Dems and the GOP.

The Tea Party is made up of people from all political stripes and the common thread between everyone is that they love this country.  Massachusetts should serve as a wake up call to all politicians.

1,982,760 – Can you say Two Million? Can you hear us Now? 912dc March on Washington.

Cspan has a tape of the event. It is almost 3 hours of live coverage.  I have included a link at the end of this post. Take a look at The MOB, the angry, irrational, scary protesters who gathered. Can we just say that 2 million people who knocked on Congresses’ door on Saturday, Sept. 12th, 2009 can’t all be confused, uninformed, right wing, paid protesters, racists, bigoted, ignorant fringes of the population? From my personal experiences, for every one person who was able to make the trip, one hundred others wanted to be there.

This event is a piece of the United States history.  The current administration has control of most media outlets. We are able to view the lack of coverage from, for example, NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN as indicators that we can no longer see the truth or hear the news from those agencies. The current administration has swallowed them up and they are now the mouthpiece for government controlled information. Can anyone say North Korea, Venezuela? State controlled media is here in the USA. Obama recently added a FCC czar. Do the math folks. The intent and purpose of this FCC czar is to control the information given to the American People and ‘redistribute’ the media airwaves to state controlled left wing organizations. They have already begun the process and that is another post to be aired down the road.

So much BS, so little time.

Here is another video I took of the march. There were waves and waves of people.  During the march, as we walked down Pennsylvania Avenue, we heard a rumble, sounding like a low roar, with the sound getting louder as it neared. We couldn’t make out what was being said until the wave of the chant neared us. It became clear that the crowd was saying, “You Lie. You Lie.” and we joined in as the wave became us and those in front of us caught the wave and picked it up. It was a very surreal experience, very moving and powerful.

We can easily say that 2 million patriots attend this historic event. Zac Moilanen calculates the number to be

Zac Moilanen – Indiana University (Leave it up to a Hoosierite) has a PDF HERE outlining the calculations for The Real Number of Protesters at the 9/12 Washington, D.C. March. Considering that the government and the State run media refuse to report accurately, Zac took up the project.

1,982,760

That is the number from Zac’s analysis.

“I got One Nerve Left and you’re on it.”

Obama to all Americans, “If You misrepresent what’s in the plan, we will call you out.” Hey Obama, we showed up, you didn’t.

Well, Obama, we arrived on your and Congresses front door, stood at the steps of the Capitol building. We showed up and you did not. You threatened to call out the American people as if what you say are the only words having merit? We didn’t wait for more taunts from you, we showed up anyway. The American People have more knowledge about the various healthcare plans you tried to railroad through Congress than you have demonstrated in any of your healthcare campaign speeches where you behave like a snake-oil salesman. We want honesty and facts, not campaign speeches from a sitting pResident.

If your plan for a government takeover of healthcare was such an honorable and beneficial plan, you would not be hitting the road and the airwaves, once again, campaigning, trying to pull wool over the people’s eyes. It doesn’t matter whether you disguise your intentions of a government controlled health care plan. It doesn’t matter what you call what you are doing.  Every proposed healthcare plan is currently unconstitutional.  Start telling the truth to the American people. ( I KNOW YOU don’t wanna hear those two words again, you know, the words blurted by Mr. Wilson.) Tell them that this latest healthcare revision still has the language that gives the Federal government control over healthcare and that you just mixed some words around to try and hide your motive.

EXCERPTS OF THE PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS TO A JOINT SESSION OF CONGRESS TONIGHT:

I am not the first President to take up this cause, but I am determined to be the last. It has now been nearly a century since Theodore Roosevelt first called for health care reform. And ever since, nearly every President and Congress, whether Democrat or Republican, has attempted to meet this challenge in some way. A bill for comprehensive health reform was first introduced by John Dingell Sr. in 1943. Sixty-five years later, his son continues to introduce that same bill at the beginning of each session.

This is the plan I’m proposing. It’s a plan that incorporates ideas from many of the people in this room tonight – Democrats and Republicans. And I will continue to seek common ground in the weeks ahead. If you come to me with a serious set of proposals, I will be there to listen. My door is always open.

But know this: I will not waste time with those who have made the calculation that it’s better politics to kill this plan than improve it. I will not stand by while the special interests use the same old tactics to keep things exactly the way they are. If you misrepresent what’s in the plan, we will call you out. And I will not accept the status quo as a solution. Not this time. Not now.

[end of clip]

Well, we accepted your challenge to the tune of 2 Million Americans from all walks of life. You had 810,000 people attend your coronation. The American people arrived on your doorstep Sept. 12th, 2009 numbering two times that amount, to tell you to ‘Knock it Off’.

We came. You left.

912dc- Panoramic Photo – March on Washington

Over at  iOwnTheWorld.com there is the photo shown below, a high resolution panorama shot of the 912dc March on Washington.

Hmm, looks like there are a few more than tens of thousands and it really sends home the message that the ‘mainstream’ (now referred to as ‘fringe’) news media that refused to cover the largest protest/rally/march/demonstration in Washington, DC’s HISTORY are truly a media outlet owned and pawned by the federal government. We cannot trust what they say.

Look at this photo.  Just LOOK at it. And I had to reduce it in size in order to get it into the post. L-O-O-K   A-T  I-T.

I couldn’t get the whole photo in the post.  You will have to click on the photo to see it in its entirety.   This post only shows you half of the image.

912dc, I’m Not Ready to make ‘Nice’.

Hey Washington, I’m Not Ready to Make Nice, I’m Not Ready to Back Down.

You get your State Run Media, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN to ignore 2 million voices, you make fun of and degrade Americans by calling us ‘The mob’, ‘tea baggers’, nazies’. You tell us that this historic march on Washington, where we stood at your front door means nothing to you because you have other information that tells you that your jobs are safe and that we are loons. Guess what Washington, you haven’t seen anything yet. You will eventually hear us and get the message.

I’m Not Ready to make ‘nice’.

March on Washington, DC, 9-12 Project

We the People

We the People

We the People are coming, are here and are ready to have our voices heard.

Northwest Indiana has a showing in DC with some of us arriving Thursday. We drove in and had the words ‘9-12 Project Washington DC’ painted on the back window. During our drive people in cars, semi-trucks, work vans and pickups slowing down so that we would look over.  Any other time this has happened, on a normal day I would expect to see a finger and the words FU mouthed in my direction.  Instead, what we got where yells of ‘Right On!’, people shaking their hands with a big thumbs up. It was uplifting and somehow comforting that we were not alone in our mission.

Friday we took the Metro into DC with our maps handy, looking for the blue line, armed with sticky notes on which stop to look for, not risking a transfer to the yellow line and opting to ride the blue, although a longer ride, safer for the Indiana noobs.

At the hotel, on the train, in DC we saw people with Gadsden flags, American flags, patriotic gear be it a button, t-shirt or some other signal that they were one of us. NRA hats seemed popular also. I made it a point to talk to the strangers who gave hints that they were in DC for the march. Everywhere I turned was another person, another group, all smiling, all fresh with an energy of anticipation.  The usual farewell was ‘See you tomorrow!’.  We had spare maps of the parade route and handed those to people who seemed especially confused. We talked about the time of the event, start here, end there, the weather and how it was just friggin amazing that We the People are every where. And that was Friday.

Reading online I saw that 4500 motorcoach buses have pulled permits to be in DC today, Saturday.  That figures out to be roughly a quarter of a million people coming in via bus. One guy said his small Florida town had 67 people on the plane. That is just one small town. Many more never registered anywhere online, they drove in from Iowa, Texas, Missouri and you name it.

One man was a walking picture of America. I couldn’t help but stare at his hands as he sat on the Metro with us. They were huge, thick, solid, weathered with short nails embedded with grease. His face was chiseled, his body, although seasoned from what looked like a lifetime of working outside with his hands, was solid. He came to DC from Missouri with a friend. He wore faded overalls with a Henley shirt. A simple man with a mission, here in DC to tell Washington to knock it off.

THAT is what is happening today. People from all walks of America have arrived to send a message to the government that we are awake now and that things will never be the same for them. We have expectations of integrity and we have expectations of having accountable representation.

I’m off for coffee now, will try to write later.

The photo in this post is one that I took Friday and best represented my feelings regarding this moment in history.

Pete Visclosky agrees. Northwest Indiana Patriots are Tea Baggers.

Something has been gnawing at me since I attended Pete Visclosky’s Town Hall in Chesterton Indiana. Pete represents District 1 (Indiana’s First Congressional District which includes Lake, Porter, Jasper, Newton and Benton Counties). He has been in office since 1984, serving 12 terms. (26 years come 2010). His daddy was a politician and I guess the dog doesn’t stray too far from the leash so Pete decided he wanted a similar career.  Considering that ‘serving’ the people as a congressman is a SERVICE to the people and not a career, this brings up the topic of Term Limits.  No politician should be making ‘serving the people’ a career as that concept by itself fosters decisions being made by politicians that center on holding onto the career/ jobs rather than listening to and carrying out the wishes of the people they ‘serve’. The priorities are backwards and the career politician’s decisions are influenced by his Party affiliation, big business (read $$ for campaigns), lobby groups (see $$ again). On the list of the pork barrel / earmarks, Visclosky ranks 8th, out of 435. His ‘war chest’ for re-election is much larger than any challenger. Sing it with me, “Money makes politicians go-round, politicians go-round, politicians go-round.”

See:  http://www.opensecrets.org/politicians/earmarks.php?cid=N00003813

“Pete Visclosky sponsored or co-sponsored 68 earmarks totaling $113,653,000 in fiscal year 2008 ranking 8th out of 435 representatives. To learn more about earmarks, visit Big Picture – Earmarks

Pete Visclosky comes back to Northwest Indiana bribing and intimidating us with our own money and we are supposed to thank him for his hard work.

Back to Chesterton and the Town Hall.  This town hall meeting was setup by the Democratic Alliance of Northwest Indiana (DANI).  Evidently that same group is in tight with the paid to play protest groups such as MoveOn, Acorn, AFL-CIO, SEIU and the list goes on.  Now how is it that the Democratic Party, not only in Indiana, but across the nation is working closely with leftist socialist groups? The paid-to-protest groups come out to support the Dems at every turn. The Indiana Tea Party Patriots, ordinary citizens who are nothing more than concerned citizens attended and outnumbered the paid protestors approx. 4 to 1.

Read here for the giddy blow by blow as told by Don Briggs who engineered the town hall event and called for Acorn, MoveOn and all of their ilk to attend and support socialism.

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/8/4/761608/-Tea-Baggers-FAIL-to-disrupt-Health-Care-meeting,-lessons-shared.

#8    “The DANI executive board consulted closely with Visclosky’s office to draft the Public Service Announcement and to set up ground rules for the meeting. So, we opened the meeting by laying down the ground rules.”

  1. And then in opening remarks, I blew the Tea Baggers’ cover. Roughly, it went like this:

“Meetings like this one continue a democratic tradition more than 2500 years old, that of the ancient Greek “Ecclesia.” The term means “those called out”—called out to discuss and decide civic matters, and to defend their ancient Greek city-states, to defend their democracy. And you all were called out by notices in the local papers, radio stations, by e-mail and internet, to discuss Health Care Reform and Clean Energy with our Representative tonight.

So know this: efforts to disrupt and thwart public discourse on civic matters are profoundly anti-democratic. But, that’s an obstacle we face tonight. It’s public knowledge that groups known as Tea Baggers intend to disrupt and thwart the public discourse on Health Care Reform in meetings like this during this month’s Congressional Recess. They want Democracy to fail. So, let’s face this obstacle together.

The Tea Baggers’ instructions are also public knowledge. If some people stand up, shout out and sit down; if some try to rattle us and the Congressman; if some pretend numeric superiority; if some try to stifle intelligent debate; then we can compare that behavior to the Tea Baggers’ instructions and draw our own conclusions.”

So, the self appointed dragon slayer of the people, the flealess leader Don Briggs of DANI, collaborated with VISCLOSKY in preparing his speech given to the attendees and approved calling the attendees ‘Tea Baggers’. One would think that Pete would tell Biggs, Mano e Mano, that the use of Tea Bagger is juvenile, completely disrespectful and offensive, especially at a town hall meeting with patriots in ages ranging from toddler to 90+ years old.  You would think that Pete Visclosky and his office, during this co-writing of this town hall introduction would have injected some adult stylized class and dignity and not taken low class shots at their constituents.  Such was not the case. Pete Visclosky and his representatives APPROVED the use of the phrase Tea Bagger and from what I hear (I was outside), Pete smirked when the word was used, showed no objection nor did he stand and correct Bigg’s classless attack on the people of Northwest Indiana.

Who does this?  Well, a politician so embedded with special interest groups, bribery tactics, and lobbyists does this as he has no need to respect and serve the people. The World According to Pete says that the people did not elect him, money elected him and Acorn, SEIU, Unions groups, lobby groups, THOSE are the money people and those are the people he caters to.

Go here to Acorn’s Report Card pdf where they rank Visclosky according to how well he has voted in favor of Acorn.

http://www.acorn.org/fileadmin/Centers/Press/Report/ACORN_Scorecard-ltr.pdf.

See Visclosky’s 89% approval rating with Acorn. He voted the way they wanted him to vote. This is just one example of one group that Pete caters to. If we could get him to actually tell us the truth, we would know much more regarding who is pulling his strings.

What are we doing sending a huge chuck of our money to DC only to have to beg to get it back? The State of Indiana wants us to think they are doing a great job when they ‘win’ some of our money back via a stimulus, grant or some other project funding?  How about just keeping our money in the State in the first place? That would greatly reduce our dependence on ‘begging for Federal  help’.

The Northwest Indiana Republican Party is in sedentary collusion with Visclosky and the Democratic Party.

I’m beginning to think that the Republican Party, at least when it comes to the 1st District of Indiana is in collusion with the Democratic Party. This may stand as the reason for the repubs holding up Leyva as their man. They knew from the get-go back in 2006 when they endorsed him he wouldn’t win and couldn’t win the 1st Congressional seat in Indiana. (Mark has actually stumped as a Republican Party candidate for House, Indiana, 1st District, since 2002.)

Do you keep running the same horse if he loses big every time, comes in last in every race? No, you don’t.  Who does that? People who don’t want to win do that. They will put a loser in the race. Hello, this is what the Republican Party has done to northwest Indiana.  They have abandoned us and are working with Visclosky and the Democratic Party.  They are in sedentary collusion with the Democratic Party. With that knowledge we can draw the parallel between the socialist bent of the Democratic Party, the Big Government mentality of the Dems and equate the Republican Party as being of the same mindset. As long as Visclosky brings in the pork and funds the Republican’s special interests the GOP is more than happy to have Visclosky carry the water.  Nowhere in this equation do The People enter into the equation and this is a serious matter because it leaves the citizens of northwest Indiana without representation from either party.

If you disagree, show me the difference.  Show me the Republican Party in NWI that does NOT want the government to control every movement of the citizens, all the while growing government while ignoring the Constitution.

Note: Don’t forget to make travel plans for the 9-12 Project. Cars, charter coaches and caravans are leaving northwest Indiana for the March on Washington, DC.  Check the web for details from any number of sites.
