“Windfall” or “Downfall”?

As you watch this short promo-video, “Windfall”, about a small town that bought into the clean green energy of wind power, keep in mind that the “federal” Department of Energy has recently ordered that Bonneville Power cannot turn-off wind power generation in Washington State, due to excess water built-up at the dam’s and over production of power.  The effects of this ruling?

  • The wind mills must turn, despite lack of storage capability and winged fowl destruction.
  • The dam must allow the water build-up to spill over the dam, causing damage to the dam, risk to the surrounding property owners, and death to the fish in the area.

Is this what “we’ve” bought into with hype and feel-good promise that not only are you lining your pockets with green energy “gold”, but you’re saving the environment.  Notice any reduction in the rates being charged due to less power usage?  No!  The rates go up because we’re using less energy!  What a convoluted mess they’ve created.

Now that Puget Sound Energy has invested so much time and “money” into “wind power” in Washington State, they are loathe to stop itThey will, in fact, fight to keep it going at this point, because that’s the only possibility they have of recouping their investment, due to pressure from our State and Federal government.

“Newt Gingrich on National Policy at the Hoover Institute”

There is a need to use social media to share “great” philosophy and constitutional principles as they surface.  This video can be found at the Hoover Institute, and I came upon it through the Tea Party Nation website.

Enjoy the video and please share it with your contacts.  After all, that’s what social media is all about and if we make full use of it’s messaging power, we will flush out the best person to “lead” the United States back to the “beacon on the hill” for the masses that she once was and can be again.

Happy Valentine’s Day; Hidden within the Obama Administrations Budget is a Proposal for a “Global Minimum Tax”

Did you hear?  Did you listen?  Within President Obama’s budget is a “brand new tax”!  A “global minimum tax”!  Who is going to be in charge of this?  Who is going to collect it?  How is it going to be applied?  What will it be spent on?  How is this even “Constitutional”?

Think Agenda 21 is a joke?  Watch and listen to the two video’s below.  The first is the White House’s Economic Adviser talking about what President Obama’s budget will do and needs to do.  The second is a short and pithy video with words from someone in Texas who has, is and will continue to fight for the U.S. Constitution.

Will the “Tea Party” play “Moneyball” with the GOP?

The 2010 elections were, without a doubt, a loud message sent to both the GOP and DNC that the average voter has had it with out of control, unconstitutional growth and spending in government.

The 2011 elections were more about seeding local elections with true constitutionalists, committed to restoring the foundations of our Country by working within the confines of the Constitution.  After all, we are a nation of laws?  Aren’t we?

The Tea Party goal is in the long game, to place Tea Party idealists into local and state offices, effect change and gain experience for the long haul.  With a little time, a lot of hard work and demonstrable actions, these tactics will turn around the image of the GOP and draw voters in droves to “morality and ethics” in politics, something that has been lacking in U.S. politics for too long.

While other political groups race for the bottom, the Tea Party works to race to the top.  Not because they strive for money and power.  Tea Party idealists goal is to restore liberty, freedom, and personal responsibility to it’s rightful place.  At the same time they will work to reduce the size and cost of government by reintroducing the private sector as the go-to source for John Q Public’s needs,thus restoring the free markets to their natural state. These goals (and more) have been finely communicated in the posted article below.

Political Moneyball: The Conservative Strategy for Winning the Fight Coming After the Election

by Kurt Schlichter

The GOP Establishment we keep hearing about is real, and it is also doomed.

That will not change whether the Establishment’s candidate Mitt Romney wins in November or not.  After the election, the battle really starts; what is happening now are just skirmishes in a fight for control of the Republican Party.  Not the soul of the party – if it had one, it auctioned it off long ago – but the mechanism of the party.  The Grand Old Party matters only as a vehicle to carry our banner forward.

To do that, we need to seize control, and we do that by destroying the Establishment starting next November 7th.

Superficially, it might seem that we – the outsiders, the Tea Party, the conservatives, whatever the label – are outgunned by opponents with their hands on the reins of power, money in amounts we can’t hope to match, and pals in the media backing them.  But if we understand our strengths, and our opponents’ weaknesses, we can not only compete but eventually prevail.

First, let’s understand our opponent.

The GOP Establishment is an amorphous entity composed of politicians, media types, consultants, writers, lobbyists, party hacks and donors whose first priority is protecting their positions and privileges.  Power, and holding onto it, is more important than ideology.  That’s where we conservatives differ – we have no formal power or position, so changing the power structure doesn’t scare us.  We have nothing to lose; the GOP Establishment has everything to lose.

So, how do we beat it?

The Oscar-nominated film Moneyball tells the story of the Oakland A’s of the early 2000’s and how it had to adapt to compete with clubs like the Yankees with payrolls four times its size.  Under manager Billy Beane, the club reassessed what it thought it knew about baseball, gained a clear understanding of what made a team successful, and then focused ruthlessly on the long game to build a winning team.

What is the key to winning?  In baseball, it is runs – you get enough runs over the course of a year, you tend to be a winning team.  That’s the long game; the short game is the game tomorrow afternoon.  It’s nice to win that fight too, but the secret of moneyball is building success over time by playing the numbers.  Click here to read the full article.

Is there a “global” Caliphate on the horizon?

Wednesday, February 1, 2012, Glenn Beck had an absolutely amazing segment.  Glenn’s guests were all retired U.S. Military, including the West Point shunned, General Boykin.  General Boykin’s speaking engagement at West Point became an issue for CAIR, a veterans group and others.  General Boykin tends to speak his mind about what has and is happening here in the United States and around the globe, with regards to “the Muslim Brotherhood” and other similar groups.

Please take the time to watch this video and share it with your friends, family and contacts.

“NO”, I am not receiving any benefits from GBTV.  I am sharing what he permits and I agree needs to be shared with “We the People”.
