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.
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.
I attended Americans For Prosperity's ObamaCare protest today in front of Senator Bill Nelson's office in Orlando, FL. Patriots from several counties gathered from 12Noon to 1pm to ask Senator Nelson for an ObamaCare Exemption, similar to the one recently granted to he and his staff.
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.
Get signed up TODAY!!!
Speakers: Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Ron Johnson, Senator Marco Rubio, Arthur Brooks from AEI, Governor Bobby Jindal, Governor Rick Perry, Greg Gutfeld, Michelle Malkin, and MORE. Updated list here.
If you would have asked me last Monday what I had planned for my week, I never would have imagined what I would actually end up doing. Today's podcast includes my interview "On the Record" with Greta Van Susteren, with Glenn Beck in Dallas and with Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party as she's preparing to testify before ....
On Tuesday, May 28, 2013, I was honored to be invited as a guest on "On The Record" with Greta Van Susteren to talk about the DHS visiting and intimidating Tea Party events last week.
I mentioned during the interview that I believe there are multiple agencies involved just as Brandon Darby wrote in Breitbart.com on Catherine Engelbrecht's experiences with True The Vote as well as her personal family business. In the video below, she discusses what she's experienced on the Mike Huckabee show.
In addition, here is Representative Kevin Brady of Texas during the House Ways & Means Committee's time with Steven Miller of the IRS.

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."
On 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.

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.
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.
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".
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.

Stay tuned, however, as we've now learned this was a coordinated policy of the IRS across the country. As a result, our resolve has strengthened. Please subscribe HERE for updates to our efforts.

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.
