There is a great deal to cover on the tea party powwow in Mt. Pleasant today, but a little inspiration is in order.
With over three hundred tea party leaders representing over 50 organizations around the state, its safe to say the powwow was an incredible success.  A happy standing room only crowd with max seating in place should drive home the point that the Tea Party is hardly gone.
Emery McClendon is an Indiana Tea type who has become a sought after speaker at tea party events and was the winner of Americans for Prosperity's 2010 "Activist of the Year" award.  Enjoy.

CNN host trashes Obamacare: Wolf Blitzer admits Obamacare should have been delayed 
During a segment on CNN's Situation Room yesterday afternoon, Wolf Blitzer threw his support behind Republicans in Congress who are calling for a delay of the Obamacare rollout. Speaking with Brian Todd, Blitzer suggested a one-year delay in the implementation of the individual mandate in order to get the exchanges functioning properly. Glenn reacted to Blitzer's surprising remarks HERE.

The final two semifinalists competed in last night's Pursuit of the Truth
Last night, Pursuit of the Truth followed 2 more semi-finalists as they raced to produce, direct, and edit a 2-minute tease for their documentary feature.

Glenn explains why we are the 'board of directors' that 'can change the path' of the GOP 
After sharing the story of the GOP's attempted hostile takeover of FreedomWorks on last night's Glenn Beck Program, Glenn elaborated on why now was the time to tell this story on radio today. When you look at the in-fighting and corruption within the GOP between the establishment Republicans and the more conservative members of the party, a situation very similar to what happened at FreedomWorks last year begins to unfold. Get Glenn's complete analysis HERE.

For The Record investigates U.S. ties to the Muslim Brotherhood

Hostile Takeover: Did the GOP cronies infiltrate FreedomWorks in the lead up to the 2012 election?
Just weeks before the 2012 election, Glenn announced on his radio program that he had learned of  "the biggest news story is going on," but he chose not to divulge the information in order to maintain peace ahead of the election. Because of the corruption we have witnessed over the last several weeks, Glenn decided it was finally time to divulge the story on last night's Glenn Beck Program. WATCH

Scattered Showers of Journalism: Jon Karl, Ed Henry grill Jay Carney 
Asking the Obama Administration tough questions may not be what conservatives have come to know ABC News reporters for. But lately, they've actually been doing a pretty good job. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney may have been relieved of Jake Tapper's persistence, but it looks like Jon Karl is picking up where he left off. And we all know Fox News' Ed Henry is always prepared to ask the tough questions. See Carney get grilled by both Karl and Henry HERE.

The truth about Obama's dismal poll numbers 
According to recent polling numbers, President Obama's approval rating has dropped to a mere 37%, while the Republican Party's favorability rating is down to a record low 28%. It is easy to look at these numbers and blame the current stalemate in Washington, but on radio this morning, Glenn offered a slightly different interpretation. MORE

Rep. Jim Jordan grills IRS Obamacare director on Capitol Hill 
There was showdown on Capitol Hill yesterday when Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) ripped into Sarah Hall Ingram, the former head of the IRS division that targeted conservative groups and the current director of the Affordable Care Act Office at the IRS, for waiting five months to come before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Harry Reid to D.C. Mayor: 'I'm on your side, don't screw it up'  
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) once again proved he is more than a little batty during an awkward exchange with Washington D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray yesterday. The confrontation most likely arose from the fact that Democrats opposed a stand-alone District funding bill that would have allowed D.C. to stop operating off of its contingency reserve funds. But when Gray confronted Sen. Reid about the bill, the Senator barked "I'm on your side, don't screw it up." WATCH

The wise way to achieve Affordable Healthcare, not by Obamacare

What we need to do is go to a healthcare system run by the States or individually, replacing SSI and Medicare/aid with a HSA/IRA privately owned and inheritable. This can be done with a seamless transition when FairTax is implemented, ending payroll taxes, ending the Federal programs for those under age 40(approx) and an opt out for the older. Every dollar invested by the individual can be returned into an HSA/IRA. It may take 40 years to pay off, but it will bring us to fiscal stability, especially by enacting #FairTax.

Fwd: It's time to end the games | FairTax Friday



"Politics is not a game. It is an earnest business." - Winston Churchill

It's Time To End The Games 

In the early 90's I was called for jury duty in Dallas. There were three defendants charged with intent to manufacture and distribute a kilo of cocaine. After two long weeks, the trial seemed more like a game than a serious, deliberative legal process.

Sounds familiar doesn't it? Much like the political chess match currently playing out between the Executive and Congressional branches in Washington, D.C.

We are blessed in this campaign to have tens of thousands of patriotic veterans supporting the FairTax Plan. I have thought of them often the past few days while we witnessed the cat and mouse political games that played out at their WWII Memorial.

I've thought of my father who didn't consider it a game when he put his life on the line servicing planes at Pearl Harbor. I've thought of the brave young men who were mowed down by German resistance as they came up over the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc. I am confident they never considered their mission a game – nor did the Executive and Congressional leadership who supported them. 

Yet today, our elected leadership appears to feel entitled to use whatever games necessary in their ever-escalating and dangerous chess match, including threatening to arrest 80-90 year old WWII veterans and even attacking them with their ultimate weapon – the IRS. Yes, the IRS is now targeting and punishing certain veterans' organizations for paperwork they were never even required to submit to the IRS. 

And consider the case of Dr. Ben Carson who dared to offer an alternative view on political issues of the day during this year's National Day of Prayer. Shortly after making his nationally acclaimed remarks, IRS investigators confronted Dr. Carson demanding to examine properties he held after which they conducted a general audit. Not satisfied with Dr. Carson's clean record, they stated they wanted to look at another year.

Dr. Carson, like veterans organizations and citizens and businesses across this nation, was forced to comply with an intrusive, abusive IRS examination or face certain prison time and the loss of his world-renowned medical license.  Was this because he chose to speak an alternative opinion?  You be the judge.

Yet, when the House Oversight Committee tried to examine Lois Lerner, the now former head of the IRS tax exempt office, about her role in the targeting of conservative non-profits, it was clear different rules applied. She pled the 5th Amendment, was placed on paid administrative leave, retained super lawyer William Taylor of Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, retired with full pension and is now trying to negotiate an immunity deal.

These 'games' continue and our nation suffers. With the FairTax Plan much of the gamesmanship ends. 

Now, for the first time in history, the FairTax Plan will receive a vote by the Committee on Ways and Means. If you have had enough of Washington's abusive, intrusive, dehumanizing games, we need your time, energy and most importantly, your financial gifts as we prepare for this critical vote.

Donate Button

We cannot do this alone.  This is a battle that will require every bit of will; determination, energy and means that we can afford to give it. It will require our full and complete commitment. 

As we continue our battle for simple, fair and transparent taxation for every American, I am reminded of General Dwight D. Eisenhower's comments to the troops on the eve of the D-Day invasion.

He said, "You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months… The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you… I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!"

Until next week,

House Ways and Means Committee to vote on FairTaxSonoran News

For the time in the history of the Country, the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee will be voting on the HR 25, The FairTax.  No longer is the FairTax wishful thinking.  In a letter describing the soon to be taken vote, Congressman Rob Woodall discusses how important this legislation is to the American people and to the FairTax Movement.

A positive vote from the Ways and Means Committee will allow the Fair Tax to come to the floor of the House of Representatives for a vote on passage.

We need your help in educating all members of the House Ways and Means committee about the FairTax and how it will improve our economy, create great jobs for Americans, and provide a pathway for the working poor into the middle class. 

While Republicans, Democrats, and Independents tend to be divided on many issues, there is one overarching legislative proposal that is a coherent, unifying force for bringing all Americans together.  This is the FairTax… 

Is Today – the Anniversary of the Income Tax – the Worst Day in American History? - CATO Institute

There have been some unfortunate and dark days in American history, but what was the worst day?

…Allow me to suggest that today, October 3, should be a candidate for America's worst day.

Why? Because on this day in 1913, one of America's worst Presidents, Woodrow Wilson, signed into law the Revenue Act of 1913, which imposed the income tax.

The law signed that day by President Wilson, to be fair, wasn't that awful. The top tax rate was only 7 percent, the tax form was only 2 pages, and the entire tax code was only 400 pages. And a big chunk of the revenue actually was used to lower the tax burden on international trade (the basic tariff rate dropped form 40 percent to 25 percent).

But just as tiny acorns become large oak trees, small taxes become big taxes and simple tax codes become complex monstrosities. And that's exactly what happened in the United States…

Not to mention that the tax code has become one of the main sources of political corruption in Washington, impoverishing us while enriching the politicians, lobbyists, bureaucrats, and interest groups. Or the oppressive and dishonest IRS…
