Stand up for your rights!

GOP

Over the last few weeks, we have seen the Obama Administration overreach too many times.

Between the Benghazi falsehoods, shameful IRS investigations, and spying on the media, the Obama Administration has abused the public’s trust. Now more than ever it is important to stand up for the Constitution and Bill of Rights – the very documents that enshrine our rights and protect citizens from overreach by the federal government.

Please make a contribution of $5, $15 or $25 today to help the RNC elect Republicans across the country who will stand up to the arrogance and abuse of power of this President and defend the Constitution.

Make a gift of at least $5 and you will receive a “Don’t Tread On Me” sticker. Display it proudly to help us win the fight to stop the government from infringing on your rights.

StandUpForYourRights

Thank you,

Memorial Day in Memory of the U.S. 7th Armored Division in Holland

In memory of the brave soldiers who have fought fiercely in the Netherlands and unfortunately died during the second world war, particularly in the regions Meijel, Ospel and Overloon.

Several weeks ago this gentleman contacted me to ask permission to use a photo that I had posted on findagrave.com (for those of you that don’t know anything about findagrave.com – it is an organization of volunteers who will find and photograph headstones and place those pictures on the site. It is a wonderful resource for genealogists. Yes, I know it is a weird way to spend your free time, but it keeps me out of trouble!) Anyway, he explained to me that he was creating a website memorial for the troops who fought and died with the 7th Armored Division in the Netherlands during WWII and he hoped to have it up by Memorial Day.

I received this link this morning and thought you might find it of interest.

What a labor of love! Wish folks in this country would appreciate the sacrifice of our soldiers in all the wars we have fought as much as this man.

God Bless Our Troops!

The Muslim Heritage in America

Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said:
    “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America ‘s history.”

AN AMERICAN CITIZEN’S RESPONSE:

Dear Mr. Obama:

Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians. Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution? Declaration of Independence ? Bill of Rights? Didn’t think so.

Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England ? No.

Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.” Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama?

Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present.

There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the ‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t they?

Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops, and accepted support from the Nazis in killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon, or a field in Pennsylvania killing more than 3,000 citizens on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East .

No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news network’s that day. Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich heritage” Muslims have here in America .

Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslim.

And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan and 2012 when these peaceful religious believers invaded our embassies – American soil, by the way – and killed our ambassador.

And just recently, the cowardly killers in Boston were Muslims. Hmmmmmmm.

That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim Heritage” in America .

Muslim Heritage, my foot. If you can’t find time to share this message, consider yourself part of the problem!

The more we learn, the worse it gets

What does the IRS harassing conservatives have to do with Obamacare? Everything.

The IRS will play a dominant role in the implementation and enforcement of this disastrous law. To make things worse, the same person who was in charge of the office where the targeting of conservative groups took place is now the director of the IRS’ Obamacare office.

How can we trust the IRS to fairly implement Obamacare when they have already admitted to targeting and harassing nonprofits based on their political ideology?

Obamacare is already bad enough—small businesses are wrapped in new red tape, millennials will see higher insurance costs, and now, Americans have to worry that the same group that played politics with taxes will play politics with their healthcare.

With the IRS enforcing Obamacare, it promises to be a train wreck indeed. This is why we need your help.

Contribute $25, $50, $100, or whatever you can today to help us keep the Obama Administration accountable.

Judge Jeanine Pirro Slams Jihadi Mom: “Lady, You Shouldn’t Be Allowed Here”

If you haven’t seen this Video yet, you should watch this Brave Newscaster for Fox News. I’m Proud of Her!

The White House will put so much pressure on Fox News to force Them to ‘Fire her’, It will be unreal. She has Violated ‘All’ the ‘New Political Correctness’ words for Terrorist, Jihads, Muslims, Islam, etc. etc.

This is the way the President should actually speak, while sending A message to Radical Islam Terrorists, Hamas, Al Qaeda, Iran, Iraq, Syria and the so called ‘Muslim Brotherhood!

“We should not be required to breathe the same air as you, we should not be required to share the indignity of your presence” says Judge Jeanine Pirro in her opening statement to the Jihadi mother of the Boston bomber, as she exposes the facts that are being brought to light behind the terrorist attack in the Boston Marathon.

This Administration’s True Character

GOP

 

President Obama touts the openness and transparency of his administration constantly, but we know better. Let’s review just this last week in the “most transparent administration in history.”

First, the Internal Revenue Service finally admitted to what many conservative organizations have asserted for over a year: they targeted and harassed nonprofits based solely on their political leaning. Days later, President Obama and his Administration still haven’t answered basic questions about this gross abuse of power. We also now know that the same person who was targeting conservatives will be in charge of implementing Obamacare.

Second, the Justice Department used a secret subpoena to obtain phone records of Associated Press members without notifying the organization. Furthermore, the Administration will not say specifically what they were looking for. The broad scope of this seizure without explanation is outrageous.

Finally, it has been 8 months since the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and chilling details are still emerging. President Obama still will not admit that mistakes were made by the White House in the reporting of the incident. We have seen the emails, we have heard from the congressional committee, and it is time for President Obama to take some responsibility.

These scandals show the real character of this Administration, and we need your help.

Contribute $25, $50, $100, or whatever you can to help us hold them accountable today!

 

Our Memorial Day Celebration in the Czech Republic

This is an amazing story of remembrance. In the Czech Republic , the school children of the equivalent of fifth grade are each assigned one of the American and Canadian liberators buried there. Their grave is the student’s responsibility for the year and they learn all there is to know of their own hero. Their surviving family is sent letters and they respond to the annual child who tends their loved one’s grave.

No apology needed here!

Have you ever wondered if anyone in Europe remembers America ‘s sacrifice in World War II? There is an answer in a small town in the Czech Republic . The town called Pilsen ( Plzen ).

ThankYouAmerica

 

Every 5 years, Pilsen conducts the Liberation Celebration of the City of Pilsen in the Czech Republic .

This is the crash site of Lt. Virgil P. Kirkham, the last recorded American USAAF pilot killed in Europe during WWII. It was Lt. Kirkham’s 82nd mission and one that he volunteered to go on.

At the time, this 20-year-old pilot’s P-47 Thunderbolt plane was shot down, a young 14-year-old Czech girl, Zdenka Sladkova, was so moved by his sacrifice she made a vow to care for him and his memory. For 65 straight years, Zdenka, now 79-years-old, took on the responsibility to care for Virgil’s crash site and memorial near her home.

On May 4th, she was recognized by the Mayor of Zdenka’s home town of Trhanova , Czech Republic , for her sacrifice and extraordinary effort to honor this American hero.

E W Jackson’s Convention Speech – May 18th, 2013

It seems a long time since I heard a speech like this. All I can say is wow.

This American should be in the White House instead of the anti-American who is there now. On may 18th, 2013, EW Jackson inspired Richmond and rocked Virginia! Join the campaign to inspire and unite all Virginians as we rally around our shared values and toward victory in November!

Demand Accountability

GOP

It has been a terrible week for President Obama. As we learn more about the Benghazi falsehoods, illegal IRS investigations, and spying on the media, it is clear the Obama Administration has gone rogue. We cannot stand idly by while this Administration ignores the rule of law. Republicans in Congress are working hard to find answers, but we need your help.

Sign the petition and demand accountability from President Obama and his Administration.

Thanks,

Stand With Billy Graham and Declare, “I have Hope for America Because of Jesus Christ”

“In [Jesus] name the nations will put their hope” –Matthew 12:21 NIV

If you live in the typical American community–with 100 average neighbors–here’s the reality: 7 of your neighbors struggle with depression, even contemplating suicide; 7 abuse or are addicted to drugs or alcohol; 8 are struggling with unemployment; and 60 don’t profess to know Jesus Christ as their Savior.

The picture is bleak, but there is hope. Jesus Christ can transform lives that are burdened with fear, insecurity, uncertainty, and pain and offer joy and peace, now and for all eternity. By signing this declaration, you stand with Billy Graham in proclaiming that our nation needs this Good News.

In November 2013, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and Christians across the U.S. and Canada will host My Hope with Billy Graham, a massive media and friendship outreach, to proclaim the Gospel. Submit the form on the right, and we’ll send you updates on this outreach and other ways we are sharing the lifesaving message of Jesus Christ.

IRS Admits To Targeting Conservative Groups Over Tax Status

tea-party-patriots

Tea Party Patriots members shout slogans during a rally in front of the U.S. Supreme Court March 28, 2012 in Washington, DC.

The Internal Revenue Service acknowledged Friday that it had inappropriately targeted conservative political groups for additional scrutiny during the 2012 election cycle, an admission that set off a firestorm on Capitol Hill and could damage the Obama Administration.

Lois Lerner, the official in charge of the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups, revealed the move Friday at a conference sponsored by the American Bar Association in Washington. Lerner said organizations whose names contained the phrase “tea party” or “patriots” were selected for additional reviews of their 501 (c) (4) tax-exempt status as social welfare groups.

“That was wrong. That was absolutely incorrect, it was insensitive and it was inappropriate,” Lerner said, according to the Associated Press. ”That’s not how we go about selecting cases for further review.”

In a conference call with reporters Friday afternoon, the agency said the errors were limited to a group of IRA workers in its Cincinnati office, who singled out 300 applications for tax-exempt status for review. One-quarter of those were conservative groups. None of the groups had their status revoked, but some withdrew their applications in the face of requests to divulge their donors. “Mistakes were made initially, but they were in no way due to any political or partisan rationale,” the IRS said in a statement. “We fixed the situation last year and have made significant progress in moving the centralized cases through our system.”

Workers were looking for signs that the groups were primarily focused on political activity, which would have violated their tax status. Campaign finance groups have long complained that political groups have improperly received tax-exempt designations despite using their money to influence elections.

The admission by the IRS was made ahead of a forthcoming report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. It comes a year after Tea Party groups first complained they had been subjected to undue scrutiny because of their political leanings. An IRS spokesperson would not comment on whether any disciplinary actions were taken against the responsible employees.

The revelations incensed congressional Republicans and appeared to validate Tea Party complaints. “The fact that Americans were targeted by the IRS because of their political beliefs is unconscionable,” Representatives Darrell Issa and Jim Jordan said in a statement. Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, vowed to begin a probe that would “hold responsible officials accountable for this political retaliation.”

“The IRS has demonstrated the most disturbing, illegal and outrageous abuse of government power,” said Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots. “This deliberate targeting and harassment of tea party groups reaches a new low in illegal government activity and overreach.”

The revelation didn’t sit much better with groups on the left. “Even the appearance of playing partisan politics with the tax code is about as constitutionally troubling as it gets,” said Michael Macleod-Ball, chief of staff of the ACLU’s Washington legislative office.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called on the White House to investigate. “Today’s acknowledgement by the Obama administration that the IRS did in fact target conservative groups in the heat of last year’s national election is not enough,” he said in a statement. “I call on the White House to conduct a transparent, government-wide review aimed at assuring the American people that these thuggish practices are not under way at the IRS or elsewhere in the administration against anyone, regardless of their political views.”

White House spokesman Jay Carney conceded Friday afternoon that “there does appear to have been inappropriate action that we would want to see investigated.”
