In What Do YOU Believe?

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.

Its a Fight!! KrisAnne Hall vs Cato Institute -- Is Nullification the rightful remedy?

Robert Levy, Chairman of the Cato Institute, penned an oped in the NY Times titled, The Limits of Nullification where he argues against the states using Nullification to push back against the Federal government.  KrisAnne Hall, however, in agreement with the founders of our Republic, strongly disagrees.

BREAKING NEWS! - Communism In America - "There are 100 members of the US Congress and 30 members of the US Senate connected to radical Marxist groups"

I had the honor and privilege of interviewing author Trevor Loudon at Americans For Prosperity's Defending the American Dream Summit where he made the claim, "I would estimate that there are at least 100 members of the US Congress and probably 30 members of the US Senate who would not pass a basic security test and FBI security clearance…because they are connect to radical Marxist groups".

After he spoke at Americans For Prosperity's Defending the American Dream Summit in Orlando, FL at Universal Studios on Saturday, August 31, 2013, Senator Ted Cruz rushed to Radio Row and joined me on American Patriots Radio for a brief interview.  I was certainly honored to spend a couple minutes with him where we talked about the IRS, ObamaCare, squishy Republicans and the Restoration Tax Plan.

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."

Full Armor of God

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."

IRS Protest in Maitland Florida - Interviews

20130521 - IRS Protest - InterviewingOn Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 12pm Noon in the rain, we joined patriots from around the country in protest of the IRS by meeting at the IRS building in Maitland, FL.  I was thrilled to see a few of those that met us that very first day on Friday, February 27, 2009 and even more thrilled to talk to a few people that had never been involved before but felt this issue with the IRS was enough to get them active. Background Information: I posted here about what I experienced with the IRS when starting an organization.

The Coordinated IRS Profiling and Targeting Policy Scandal Hits Home

FOX 35 News Orlando For an agency of the federal government with over 100,000 agents tasked with enforcing over 70,000+ pages of confusing tax code, with an operating procedure that proclaims you're guilty until you prove your own innocence -- for them to profile and target organizations and individuals based on political ideology should disturb everyone!

With this scandal in mind, we should all be concerned about what will happen in 2014 when 17,000 more agents are hired to enforce the ObamaCare mandate.

If only we had a governing document that limited and enumerated the powers of the federal government and guaranteed each citizen equal protection under the law.  Such a novel idea. IRS Scandal - Sunshine State News Headline

Profiling & Targeting:

Unaware this new IRS policy was implemented throughout the country, a few of us in central Florida started an organization during the Fall of 2011.  We correctly filed our Articles of Incorporation and sent our application to the IRS seeking 501(c)4 tax exempt status.

On July 27, 2012 we received a letter asking very detailed and peculiar questions.

On August 6, 2012, the gentleman listed as Chairman of the organization received notice from the IRS of an upcoming audit of his personal tax returns.

Due to the ongoing audit and the privacy of the other board members, I will not be sharing the name of the organization nor the other names of those involved at this time.  Moods and approaches to this issue may change, however, so please stay tuned for updates.

The Questions:

On the letter dated July 27, 2012, each question, in and of itself, didn't seem too over-burdensome.  For me, it was the level of detail they requested as well as the nature of the questions that raised suspicion.  For the Waco Tea Party, however, who published their letter from the IRS on Foxnews.com, the sheer volume was a bully tactic which typifies the well-earned connotation, "Chicago-style thug politics".

IRS Scanda - IRS Letter Question 1

Question #1 on our letter was very strange as they provided  printed copies of our website that was in development and not even available on our official domain.  Our web host placed the website's input template on a development server for updating with a very long and purposefully confusing address.  Again, we had not moved this site to our official public domain address, nor used the site for any public purposes.  The IRS found our development site, printed it and included it in our file.

In addition, they provided printed copies of a website that I used for a radio show 3 years prior that had nothing to do with this new organization.

Feel free to take a moment and re-read the previous sentence.

Notice their approach with the first question on our IRS letter.  "If they are not yours, please explain".  Again, this is the standard operating procedure.  The IRS requires you to prove something is not the case as opposed to the burden of proof being on the "prosecutor". Question #5 asked why I was chosen as the Executive Director, who made the decision and what other candidates were considered.  They also asked for meeting minutes for all the discussions.

What business is it of the IRS to know how decisions are made and what options our organization faced at the time?  Again, this is an absolute abuse of power. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of compliance, we ended our efforts to form this organization.

45 Communist Goals Read Into Congressional Record from The Naked Communist

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...

Are You Concerned About Vote Fraud? You Should Be and Here's Why!

This week, Accuracy in Media published a report, The Left’s National Vote Fraud Strategy Exposed, and is blowing the lid off the left's plan to continue perpetrating vote fraud.  It opens with:

"This report reveals the Left’s vote fraud strategy for the 2012 elections. Like a KGB operation, it is thorough, multi-faceted and redundant. It has overt and covert, illegal and legal elements, the latter of which are designed, at least in part, to facilitate illegal activities later. It is a deliberate, premeditated, comprehensive plan to win the 2012 presidential election at all costs, and is in keeping with the organizational methods, associations and ethics of the Community-Organizer-in-Chief, Barack Obama."

Personally, I believe that the left is losing the debate.  Statism vs. Individual Liberty.  Bankrupting our Nation vs. Fiscal Responsibility.  Central Planning of our Lives vs. Leave us Alone.  Trashing our Constitution or Strict Adherence to Original Intent.  Time and again, they can't compete in the battle of ideas.

So what are they willing to do to win the election?  Just look at what they've done in the past.  Read this report, pass it on to your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers and get signed up at TrueTheVote.org to help ensure we have a free and fair election.

If you are not concerned about Voter Fraud, you should be.  Because if you're not for a free and fair election -- what are you for??  And if you're not willing to take action to do something about it in your area, are you just expecting someone else to do it?

Mobile device users, the above video is re-posted here:

This strategy has been under development for decades. They have constructed an entire industry devoted to this task and pursue a multifaceted strategy to accomplish it:

1. Swamp election officials with overwhelming numbers of registrations at the last possible minute, a huge proportion of which are deliberately fraudulent, in order to create systematic chaos. This accomplishes numerous goals:

  • Makes verification of registrations difficult, given the small size and limited budgets of state and local election offices.
  • Provides multiple opportunities for vote fraud.
  • Throws the entire voting process into question, providing pretext for lawsuits where concessions may be obtained from election officials.
  • When election officials challenge registrations, they are accused of “voter suppression.” This in turn serves complementary goals:
    • Charge of “voter suppression” reinforces the Left’s narrative about America as an oppressive, “racist” country.
    • Publicity and lawsuits intimidate election officials, who settle on terms favorable to the Left.

2. Activists sue state authorities for “voter suppression,” creating further chaos and pressuring them to become de facto taxpayer-funded voter registration operations;

3. Eric Holder’s Justice Department tacitly supports voter intimidation tactics, sues states and backs private lawsuits, and resists reform as “voter suppression.”

4. Leftist echo chamber discredits allegations of vote fraud, supports “suppression” theme, and promotes advantageous legislation.

The ultimate goal is a systematized, taxpayer-funded voting machinery that will guarantee maximum participation from the Left’s voting demographic while undermining the ability to manage elections and prevent fraud.

Here's more from the Accuracy in Media Report, an interview with J. Christian Adams, a former DOJ election lawyer who worked on the Philadelphia Black Panther voter intimidation case:

A Personal Testimony

J. Christian Adams is a former DOJ election lawyer who worked on the Philadelphia Black Panther voter intimidation case. He resigned in protest of Eric Holder’s race-based application of the law. According to Adams’ new book, Injustice, Eric Holder became directly involved in the Black Panther case. Mr. Adams agreed to be interviewed for this report. Some highlights:

Are We Living A Lie? - What If??

On November 24th, 2011 'The Judge' Andrew Napolitano rattled off a series of questions in the form of "What If..." which lays out a horrible case for the state of affairs in our country during his show, Freedom Watch which airs daily on Fox Business.

What if the constitution was no longer the supreme law of the land??

My post in Facebook:

PREPARE yourselves for the hardest hitting 4 minutes you've spent in a long time. If you don't get a little overwhelmed and sad after watching this, you may be living in denial.

WHAT IF OUR CONSTITUTION DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING ANYMORE??? Everything in the list of grievances the Judge mentions exists today. Doesn't this break your heart???

My question to each of you is this -- Does your favorite candidate understand this?

Why Taxation is Theft, Abortion is Murder, & Gov't is Dangerous

On Reason.tv, Judge Napolitano sat down with Chief Editor, Nick Gillespie, for a 25-minute interview.

"I'll say this plainly, I've said it before - Taxation is theft. It presumes the government has a higher claim on our property than we do," says Judge Andrew Napolitano, the host of Fox Business' Freedom Watch and the author of the new book, It Is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government Is Wrong: The Case for Personal Freedom.
