I recently attended the announcement of a major media buy in Florida by Americans For Prosperity at their local office in Kissimmee, FL. Tim Phillips (@TimPhillipsAFP), President of Americans For Prosperity, and Slade O'Brien (@SladeOBrien), State Director for Americans For Prosperity - Florida spent time with me afterward discussing Obamacare, real solutions to our healthcare problems as well as the new set of ads that will be playing throughout Florida.
I want to talk, today, about a problem that’s occurring across the country. I hear it in academia, in the media, pop culture, and especially in politics – and we find it at the local, state and especially the federal level. At times you could attribute it to being accidental, maybe they don’t really understand – but more times than not, its purposeful.
I spent time with Bill Whittle at the Americans For Prosperity Defending The Dream Summit in Orlando, FL at Universal Studios where we discussed several areas where the tea party and grassroots groups are making a mistake.
Do you have those days where your frustration builds and you find it hard to continue in our struggle to save our Republic? In today's show, for such a time as this, I share a story about an old man and a rock and I ask you to recommit yourself -- right here, right now -- to the mission.
On today's show, I not only go off on a major rant on the problems we face but I offer an answer to the age old question: What are you going to do about it? Join us in Orlando to learn from the best of the best in policy, activism and new media training from experts across the country.
Both Americans For Prosperity (AFP)'s annual events, RightOnline and the Defending The American Dream summits will be held in Orlando, FL at Universal Studios on August 30-31st.

December 23, 1776 - Thomas Paine "THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."
Ephesians 6:10-20 "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."
I received the following in one of those forwarded emails that you typically receive from friends and family. This one, however, deserves to be documented in a blog post and shared via social media. Unfortunately, I do not know the name of the patriots in the photographs, nor do I know the original author of the email. To each, though, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Subject: A Love Story
A story in pictures you won't forget easily....
AND IT BEGINS . .FOCUS ON THE MAN IN THE FIRST PICTURE. . .IT'S HIM THROUGHOUT THE SERIES BELOW. . .GOD BLESS HIM.
If he is a hero...........She is an angel
"I could hardly keep the tears from falling!!!"
God has blessed us all, for he has put soldiers here to protect what we believe in!
THE FINAL INSPECTION
The Soldier stood and faced God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shining, Just as brightly as his brass. 'Step forward now, Soldier, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To My Church have you been true?' The soldier squared his shoulders and said, 'No, Lord, I guess I have not. Because those of us who carry guns, Can't always be a saint I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was tough. And sometimes I've been violent, Because the world is awfully rough. But, I never took a penny, That wasn't mine to keep... Though I worked a lot of overtime, When the bills got just too steep. And I never passed a cry for help, Though at times I shook with fear.. And sometimes, God, forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears. I know I don't deserve a place, Among the people here. They never wanted me around, Except to calm their fears If you've a place for me here, Lord, It needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't, I'll understand.
There was a silence all around the throne, Where the saints had often trod. As the Soldier waited quietly, For the judgment of his God.
'Step forward now, you Soldier, You've borne your burdens well. Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets, You've done your time in Hell.'
It's the Soldier, not the reporter Who has given us the Freedom of the Press. It's the Soldier, not the poet, Who has given us the Freedom of Speech. It's the Soldier, not the politicians That ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.. It's the Soldier who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, And whose coffin is draped by the flag.
If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for the Military, please pass this on and pray for our men and women who have served and are currently serving our country and pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.
God Bless our troops their loved ones.
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;" (Isaiah 5:20) Please take the time and look at these videos and SHARE this page with your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Please note; there's so much more evidence out there that we live in a backwards, illogical world that simply lacks common sense and a common decency towards our fellow man -- all occurring with a complete lack of will to solve the problems we face today.
I weep for future generations.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen...
The man-made busy-ness of the commercialized winter solstice non-denominational and irreligious holiday festivus season is once again upon us and in full swing. Has everyone lost the true reason for this Christmas season?? The answer, with all Thanks to God and Becky Kelley's nephew, is No.
Here's an excerpt to the story behind Becky Kelley's inspiration to what began as a YouTube sensation, Where's The Line To See Jesus:
"While at the mall a couple of years ago, my then four year old nephew, Spencer, saw kids lined up to see Santa Claus. Having been taught as a toddler that Christmas is the holiday that Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, he asked his mom, "where's the line to see Jesus"? My sister mentioned this to my dad, who immediately became inspired and jotted words down to a song in just a few minutes. After putting music to the words, and doing a quick recording at home, he received a great response from friends. He sent the song off to Nashville without much response, except for a Christian song writer who suggested adding a bridge at the end of the first chorus. My dad then asked if I wanted to record the song to see what we could do with it.".

A very special Thank You to Becky Kelley for sharing this wonderful message. May God be with you and your family this Christmas.
On Saturday, April 21st, 2012, the founders of the National Conservative Film Festival, Margie Kinder and James Marshal, joined me in-studio to talk about the Culture War going on in Hollywood and what they're planning for August 30th to September 2nd in Orlando, FL at the Coronado Spring Resort at Walt Disney World.
On Friday, September 23rd, 2011 in Orlando, Florida, Americans For Prosperity - Florida and the "Suite Tea" Hospitality Suite hosted by the Tea Party Movement of Florida, proudly sponsored a breakfast with Anita MonCrief, Brandon Darby & Andrew Breitbart.
There's a great Awakening occurring in America today. Many of you reading this will know exactly what I'm talking about and you're probably one of the many driving the conversation. Not only is there a political and fiscal awakening, but many are realizing an educational, cultural and even spiritual awakening that's screaming for our attention.
On Friday, September 30th, the movie Courageous, produced by Sherwood Pictures, the film-making offshoot of Albany, Georgia’s Sherwood Church, also known for Facing the Giants (motivating movie clip) and Fireproof (movie trailer), was released.
The theme of the movie is fatherhood and the responsibilities that come with it. We definitely need more men to lead their families Courageously, seeking God's grace, praying for wisdom and guidance, and passing on the lessons of personal responsibility to their children. Brace yourself as this movie will tackle many of the challenges that come with those lessons.
Joshua 24:15 "...choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
I recommend you see this movie with your buddies, spouse, church group, neighbors and your co-workers.
Here's a 5-minute documentary on the making of Courageous.
The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.
On Wednesday, May 4, 2011, historian, and to many of us across the country, "national treasure", David Barton was on the Jon Stewart show. As you'll see in the embedded clips below, David Barton visited with Stewart in an extended interview that left me on the edge of my seat. This interview encapsulates what each of us must do with our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers who have yet to awaken to the fact that we have not been taught a truthful and complete view of American History.
The following was posted on my blog site, MyAmericanism.com, on March 15, 2009. The site has since been taken down and I believe the blog post must be preserved: 9 PRINCIPLES
1. America Is Good.
2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the external rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is know. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson
5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson
6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson
7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson
- Honesty - Reverence - Hope - Thrift - Humility - Charity - Sincerity - Moderation - Hard Work - Courage - Personal Responsibility - Gratitude
