Tea Party Express V: The Ex-Russian, Palin and The Black Patriots

Gotta admit Lloyd Marcus is one  smart guy.  This is about the TEA party express 5 and their travels.

The highlight of every Tea Party Express tour is the extraordinary American patriots I meet. Felix is from Russia and became a proud American 16 years ago.
I shared with Felix that for years I performed my original song, “Celebrate America”, at U.S. Immigration Citizenship Ceremonies. I was struck by the number of seniors tearfully taking the oath of citizenship; some so old they were in wheelchairs and some needing support by family members to stand. Why was it important for these seniors to become official U.S. citizens despite their ages?
Felix, formerly a Russian, replied, “When you have lived under tyranny you understand the precious gift of freedom. Freedom is so wonderful you are always fearful of it being taken away. This is why it means so much to become an American. No one can take away your freedom”.
Tea Party Express rolled into Rochester, NY at 1am. C-SPAN was rebroadcasting Sarah Palin‘s speech at a tea party rally. The crowd was huge. Palin’s speech was interrupted numerous times by the crowd chanting, “Run Sarah run! Run Sarah run!”
With no holds barred, Palin boldly attacked Obama’s horrific record and agenda, the hypocrisy of the “lame-stream-media” and she apologetically proclaimed America to be a nation under God. For someone whom everyone says could never win, the common sense all American appeal of her message and patriot’s response to it is extraordinary.
Palin is making the media and people on both sides of the aisle crazy and furious at her; will she or will she not run? And yet, everyone is on the edge of their seats in anticipation. The woman is a marketing genius.
In Milford, MI, I had the pleasure of fellowshipping, discussing strategics and praying with three fellow black tea party activists. Please check out www.theronedwards.com and www.joshuastrail.org. I shared my passion to take the tea party message to the black community; colleges and etc.
Some blacks are so infected with years of liberal entitlement indoctrination and their own racism, they will never accept the truth. We can only keep them in our prayers. But, there will be blacks who once they hear it articulated that conservatism is best for all people, they will see the light.
I pray for assistance in planning and funding a tea party tour to black America.
Lloyd Marcus, Proud Unhyphenated American
Co-Chairman of The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama.

Gore-monism: Romney believes in manmade global warming

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVXHEjanN7E »]
Sheesh, these guy’s really know how to lose elections.  Steve

That Mitt Romney is a Mormon is, of course, no problem. That he is a Gore-mon, however, is.
Before a town hall meeting in Mancester, New Hampshire today, Romney said,
I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that. It’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors.
This statement obviously doesn’t bode well for the prospect that Romney would rein in the EPA and its endangerment finding and economy-killing greenhouse gas regulations.
In a 2008 GOP presidential debate, Romney was critical of unilateral/local emissions cuts, noting it was called “global warming” not “California warming.” But today’s comments raise serious questions about his candidacy.
Note to GOP presidential candidates: If you embrace climate alarmism to appease the alarmists, then don’t because they won’t vote for you anyway and non-alarmists will vote for another Republican candidate.

Baby Snatched From Oath Keepers Couple Returned


"Oath Keepers" couple reunited with their baby girl



Bob Unruh of World Net Daily reports on October 14, 2010 that the newborn baby girl snatched from her parents a week ago was returned. [See “Govt Snatched Baby From ‘Militia’ Couple“]
When New Hampshire’s Family Child Services took the baby, the father, Johnathon Irish, was ordered to stand with his hands behind his back and was frisked while social workers took away his child.
In the affidavit provided by the state, one of the reasons given was that Irish is a member of an alleged militia group, Oath Keepers. The problem is Oath Keepers is a peaceful organization of patriots, not a militia, and even if it were, membership in a militia is not criminal, but a 2nd Amendment Constitutional right.
Along with the return of the baby, the accusations against Irish have also been dropped, nor are there future court dates scheduled in the case.
The founder and president of Oath Keepers, Stewart Rhodes, did send a letter of protest to New Hampshire state officials, which says:

“This poorly conducted investigation used unsubstantiated and unsupported information regarding our organization. A journey to our website, and a reading of our bylaws, could have easily confirmed what we are and are not. We are an association of currently serving and retired police, military, and emergency personnel. We are not a militia. Our goal is simply to educate all current service personnel on their obligations under the law and in particular our Constitution.”

Oath Keepers’ members promise not to obey any order “to disarm the American people,” conduct warrantless searches, “detain American citizens as ‘unlawful enemy combatants,'” work to impose martial law, invade or subjugate any state, blockade American cities, put Americans in detention camps or “make war against our own people.”
Rhodes himself was a U.S. Army paratrooper injured in an parachuting accident, a former firearms instructor and a former member of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s Washington staff. The organization’s board of directors includes Army veteran Sgt. Dave Freeman, Army veteran Capt. Chauncey Normandin, Navy veteran Capt. Gregory Gooch, Celia S. Hyde of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, all retired. Others are Marines, members of the Air Force, local law enforcement and even of the U.S. Army Special Forces.
Rhodes wrote on his website that the citation of his organization, Oath Keepers, as a factor in removing the baby from her parents sends a seriously troubling message:

“Talk about chilling speech! If this is allowed to continue, it will chill the speech of not just Mr. Irish, but all Oath Keepers and it will serve as the camel [nose] under the tent for other associations being considered too risky for parents to dare. ‘Don’t you dare associate with such and such group, or you could be on ‘the list’ and then child protective services might come take your kids.'”

Read the rest of the WND article HERE.
Happily, in this case the state backed down, due in no small part to the publicity generated by bloggers and the resultant public outrage. Thomas Jefferson was right when he wrote in his letter to Edward Carrington, 1787:

“If once they [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves.”

Govt Snatched Baby From "Militia" Couple

What is happening to America? This is so shocking, I’m still shaking my head.
Oath Keepers (OK) is a voluntary, non-partisan, and non-violent association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters. OK members have sworn an Oath to the United States Constitution — “to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.” Oath Keepers is NOT a militia, and even if it were, there’s nothing wrong with it. On the contrary, free Americans forming voluntary militia groups is our Constitutional right.

In this video, a young couple claims that their newborn baby girl was taken from the hospital by New Hampshire’s Family Child Services because of the couple’s “association with the militia group, Oath Keepers.”
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvZRM-P46rI&feature=player_embedded]
Here’s an account by Colonel Sixx for Before It’s News, October 8, 2010:

A newborn baby was ripped from its mother’s arms by officials from the New Hampshire Division of Family Child Services accompanied by police last night after authorities cited the parents’ association with the Oath Keepers organization as one of the primary reasons for the snatch, heralding a shocking new level of persecution where Americans’ political beliefs are now being used by the state to kidnap children.
What was supposed to be one of the most joyous occasions of their lives turned into a nightmare for John Irish and Stephanie Janvrin, after they were told by The Director of Security and the Head Nurse at Concord Hospital that their baby would be taken to be checked by the hospital pediatrician.
“They lied to us – they got us to allow them to take our daughter under false pretenses, we didn’t even have a choice,” said Irish.
When Irish tried to stop his daughter being taken, the baby was immediately wheeled out in a bassinet, after which Irish saw three men in suits accompanied by uniformed police officers as well as detectives and social workers. who proceeded to try to search Irish.
“They forced me to stand up, held my hands behind my back and patted me down,” said Irish, before police told him they were taking the baby. “My fiancé didn’t even get any time to bond with the baby – they came in and stole our child,” said Irish. The parents were given a couple of minutes with their daughter before being forced by police to leave the hospital. Irish was subsequently told that a “security officer” would follow his every move.
The affidavit in support of the decision to take the child, which has been verified by Oath Keepers, states, “The Division became aware and confirmed that Mr. Irish associated with a militia known as the Oath Keepers,” confirming that political beliefs were, amongst other reasons, one of the primary factors behind the snatching of the baby.
Even if the additional reasons cited in the affidavit, which are unproven at this time, could be considered sufficient reason for the state to take the baby, the fact that political affiliations were even mentioned is a frightening indictment of how far the government’s war on Americans who dissent against authority has advanced.
“Regardless of the other allegations, it is utterly unconstitutional for government agencies to list Mr. Irish’s association with Oath Keepers in an affidavit in support of a child abuse order to remove his daughter from his custody.” writes Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes. “Talk about chilling speech! If this is allowed to continue, it will chill the speech of not just Mr. Irish, but all Oath Keepers and it will serve as the camel under the tent for other associations being considered too risky for parents to dare. Thus, it serves to chill the speech of all of us, in any group we belong to that ‘officials’ may not approve of. Don’t you dare associate with such and such group, or you could be on ‘the list’ and then child protective services might come take your kids.”
The parents were not even full members of the Oath Keepers organization, they were merely on a discussion list related to the group. This makes the case even more shocking – you don’t even have to be directly associated with a group that the government deems to be a “militia” to have your baby stolen – you merely have to be involved in online discussions of issues relating to the constitution and freedom in America.
Irish’s own web page clearly states that he supports a “NON-violent, law abiding gathering of like minded Patriots,” and that he is “AGAINST ANY acts of violence or illegal activity.” “The Sons of Liberty Riders does not endorse or tolerate radical, extreme, violent or racial postings,” states the website.
The Oath Keepers organization is not a “militia,” as the affidavit claims, it is merely a loose network of current and former military and law enforcement professionals who have sworn not to obey unconstitutional orders such as gun confiscation, warrantless searches and mass internment of Americans. The group is committed to non-violence.
If this case is allowed to stand it opens up a hellish future for free speech and political discourse in America. If parents live in fear of having their children stolen by the state because they criticize the government, the United States can rank itself amongst the worst dictatorships in history who invoked the threat of taking people’s children if they spoke out against tyranny.
Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes has announced that a legal defense fund will be created to help Irish, and that the organization, “will actively pursue aggressive legal remedy and redress.”
“We will assist in locating competent local legal counsel in New Hampshire and additional expert legal counsel from around the country in First Amendment and child custody law,” wrote Stewart on the Oath Keepers website.
“There can be no freedom of speech, no freedom of association, no freedom to even open your mouth and “speak truth to power,” no freedom AT ALL, if your children can be black bagged and stolen from you because of your political speech and associations — because you simply dare to express your love of country, and dare to express your solidarity and fellowship with other citizens and with active duty and retired military and police who simply pledge to honor their oath and obey the Constitution. It was to prevent just such outrageous content based persecution of political dissidents that our First Amendment was written.”

Here’s a statement by Stewart Rhodes, the founder and director of Oath Keepers. Rhodes has seen the affidavit:

UPDATE : 10/07/2010 10.53PM PST — We have confirmed that the affidavit in support of the order to take the child from her parents  states, along with a long list of other assertions  against both parents, that “The Division became aware and confirmed that Mr. Irish associated with a militia known as the Oath Keepers.” Yes, there are other, very serious allegations. Out of respect for the privacy of the parents, we will not publish the affidavit. We will leave that to Mr. Irish.   But please do remember that allegations do not equal facts — they are merely allegations (and in my  experience as a criminal defense lawyer in small town Montana I saw many allegations that proved to be false).
But an even more fundamental point is that regardless of the other allegations, it is utterly unconstitutional for government agencies to list Mr. Irish’s association with Oath Keepers in an affidavit in support of a child abuse order to remove his daughter from his custody. Talk about  chilling speech! If this is allowed to continue, it will chill the speech of not just Mr. Irish, but all Oath Keepers and it will serve as the camel under the tent for other associations being considered too risky for parents to dare. Thus, it serves to chill the speech of all of us, in any group we belong to that “officials” may not approve of. Don’t you dare associate with such and such group, or you could be on “the list” and then child protective services might come take your kids.
Note that there is no allegation that Oath Keepers is a criminal organization or that Mr. Irish, in the context of his association with Oath Keepers, is committing any crime. We are not advocating or planning imminent violence, which is the established line where free speech ends and criminal behavior begins (See Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969), which, as Wikipedia notes, “held that government cannot punish inflammatory speech unless it is directed to inciting and likely to incite imminent lawless action. In particular, it overruled Ohio’s criminal syndicalism statute, because that statute broadly prohibited the mere advocacy of violence.” We don’t even advocate that the current serving use violence of any kind, let alone imminent violence. We ask them to merely stand down.
Neither is Oath Keepers a militia, for that matter. However, EVEN IF WE WERE, that also would not be a valid reason to take someone’s child away. PRIVATE MILITIAS, JUST LIKE OTHER VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATIONS, ARE NOT ILLEGAL, and it is not a crime to associate with them. To the contrary, we have an absolute right, won by the blood of patriots, and protected by our First Amendment, to freely associate with each other as we damn well please so long as we are not advocating or planning  imminent violence or directly harming our children (and no, teaching them “thought crime” like “All men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” or that those who swear an oath should keep it, does not count — at least not yet). A parent associating with a militia is not  engaged in child endangerment and is not evidence of child endangerment (despite the shrill screeching of people such as Mark Potock of the SPLC, who desperately wants it to be so). Just recently a Time Magazine article described how the reporter visited the happy home of a militia member and his family — and those kids are still at home, where they belong, as is the case with many th0usands of children across this country who have parents who “associate” with private militias and all manner of other non-criminal groups. You had damn well better defend the rights of those parents to freely associate in their militias and keep their kids while doing so. You can bet that if you let such an association be listed as grounds for taking children from their parents that it won’t only be militia folks who have their rights violated. Homeschoolers, evangelical Christians, gun owners, etc. will also be on the hit list. Just wait.
