2014 PLC – Kumbaya: Working Together

2014 PLC - Kumbaya working together

Kumbaya – Working Together

Brief Notes from PLC –

Gene Barr, PA Chamber of Commerce – look at past history and where we are today and how we can use it. Thank you to veterans. Book, An Army at Dawn – about World War II and the beginnings; book is the story of the North African campaign. This group did not like that group that group did not like the other group; but they all had a common goal and came together to share the common goal which was the goal. We share the common goal; stop leaving our grandkids with a mound of debt.

Stephen Bloom, State Rep – system was designed by founders to be a complex; checks and balances. Controversy is a feature of the system and should be expected. To get things done you need to get a seat at the table. After elected you need credibility to keep a seat which comes from citizen activists. Present good ideas in a message that is crafted in a way that people identify with and can connect with.

Michael Geer, PA Family Institute -founded PA family institute by coming together and working towards a common goal. Formed about the same time PLC was founded. Group comes together – St Paul in letter to Corinthians chapter 12 body does not consist of one member but many. Eye can not say to the body, I have no need for you. We need to recognize and come together.

Robert Gleason, PA GOP Chairman – Gleason and party does not govern. Try to promote the party platform and if you have not read it, you need to. Written every other four years and is a wonderful document. He always reminds those elected of the party platform when he can.

Anastasia Przybylski, Freedom Works – humility and respect. A lot of people woke up five years ago and realized they needed to be involved. People in party structure did not accept us with open arms but now realize we are not going away.  The republican party and Tea Party need to recognize one thing, the republican party needs the tea party and the tea party needs the republican party.  When people want to run for state or county committee they are me with opposition. Republican Party needs to see there are new people and new energies and realize they need to change with times and need less resistance.

Diana Reimber, Tea Party Patriots – All come together for a commone cause, out of control spending and a tax and spend government. Believe in fiscal responsibility, constitutional rights, right to grow job.  The Tea Party Patriots support principles over party. 501C4, does not endorse. Recently formed a pac to support candidates.  When ask if the tea party going away – absolutely not. Used to see people waving signs, now you see people going to meeting and running for office.

According to President Obama, you “willfully lied” this week

2nd amend liar

It’s right there in his tantrum speech yesterday afternoon:

But instead of supporting this compromise, the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill.

That’s right. When you stood up for transparency and the Constitution, you weren’t defending your principles. You were being dishonest. And your “dishonest[y]” helped the Senate stand against a possibly unconstitutional, rushed bill that would have done little to stop the kinds of shootings seen in Aurora and at Sandy Hook.

Of course, the politics didn’t end with calling you liars. Apparently, you ignored “the murder of 20 innocent schoolchildren and their teachers.” Never mind that FBI data indicates most homicides (the majority of which are committed with guns) don’t occur in white, suburban America. In reality, the majority are linked to drug-related crime and gangs in major metropolises. By skewing these numbers, the President and other anti-gun politicians only look interested in violence that agrees with their narrative.

Of course, the President says he stands with those who die from gun violence, as well as their loved ones.

One common argument I heard was that this legislation wouldn’t prevent all future massacres. And that’s true. As I said from the start, no single piece of legislation can stop every act of violence and evil. We learned that tragically just two days ago. But if action by Congress could have saved one person, one child, a few hundred, a few thousand; if it could’ve prevented those people from losing their lives to gun violence in the future while preserving our Second Amendment rights, we had an obligation to try. And this legislation met that test. And too many senators failed theirs.

In that case, why doesn’t the President tell the public that “the number of defensive gun uses far exceeds the number of violent crimes committed with guns?” Is he not looking at the data, or is he cherry-picking what he shares with the American people?

Lastly, if the President were truly intent on “action by Congress” that “could have saved one person, one child,” why did he have no comment when asked about the Gosnell trial in Pennsylvania – a trial where a doctor is accused of killing at least eight people, including one woman and seven children?

The President’s comments yesterday are those of a man who, as Allahpundit noted, is a lame duck President only months into his second term. He lost the trust of the American people when he decided to support the Beltway status quo of constitutional violations and a lack of transparency. If anybody’s honesty is in question, it’s his.

Tea Party Patriots visting US Senator Pat Toomey’s office

ToomeyPatriots, I am sure you heard about Toomey and our gun rights.  We are not happy about him interfering with our 2nd Amendment Rights.  Therefore, we are planning to visit his Johnstown office at 12 noon on Tuesday, April 16.  We need as many people there at possible.  If you have a letter defending our Second Amendment rights please bring it with you. We encourage you to drop it off at his office during the rally. It would be great if one person at a time could go into his office and hand deliver that letter.  Below is Toomey’s office address in Johnstown.  We must stand and fight for our rights!

Tea Party Sites that have been vetted as real

tea party patriotsPatriots, it has come to our attend that many websites and facebook sites have not been true to their principles. Listed below are sites that we recommend for tea party activists.

From a Fellow Patriot that was kind enough to put this together.

I spoke with someone recently regarding web sites/groups and subscriptions to information/news feeds. This is a listing of many such which may be of use to folks.

The number of emails can get overwhelming at times, so check out the sites and see what suits your need. I recommend, though to be sure to subscribe to at least #1 Tea Party Patriots and #2 Americans for Prosperity.

Groups/web sites for keeping up on issues, events, etc.

1. Tea Party Patriots (National) http://www.teapartypatriots.org
Dot’s note ► From this site, you can get to state and local group sites. Basically, this is our “Home page” for information on the national level. Great site to keep up with issues within the “realm” of the Tea Party’s core values: Fiscal Responsibility, Free Markets and constitutionally limited Government. They have many citizen journalists who contribute. Also, information on events, etc.

From the site:
The Tea Party movement spontaneously formed in 2009 from the reaction of the American people to fiscally irresponsible actions of the federal government, misguided “stimulus” spending, bailouts and takeovers of private industry. Within the first few weeks of the movement, Tea Party Patriots formed to support the millions of Americans seeking to improve our great nation through renewed support for fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market economic policies.

Tea Party Patriots is a national grassroots organization that exists to serve and support the thousands of local organizations and millions of grassroots Patriots throughout our nation. We provide logistical, educational, networking and other support to thousands of community-based tea party groups around the country. Tea Party Patriots state and national coordinators serve your local grassroots groups, support you with the tools and technology you need to address your local issues, listen to your voices, gather your ideas, and together help shape the overall direction of our national movement. Working in a truly grassroots fashion, we have already changed the political landscape of America.
Tea Party Patriots is made up of, and funded by, millions of regular Americans just like you, who believe there is a better way forward for America. We are a non-profit 501(c)(4) organization that does not support any political party nor do we endorse candidates. If you support fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market economic policies, we encourage you to sign up for Tea Party Patriots today.

2. Americans for Prosperity (AFP) http://americansforprosperity.org/
Dot’s note ► Great organization, super info. they sponsor/organize many events in the area and DC. Jennifer Stefano is the PA State Director. You’ve most likely seen her on Fox News Channel.
From the web site: OUR MISSIONS
Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is committed to educating citizens about economic policy and mobilizing those citizens as advocates in the public policy process. AFP is an organization of grassroots leaders who engage citizens in the name of limited government and free markets on the local, state, and federal levels. AFP grassroots activists advocate for public policies that champion the principles of entrepreneurship and fiscal and regulatory restraint. To that end, AFP supports:
Cutting taxes and government spending in order to halt the encroachment of government in the economic lives of citizens by fighting proposed tax increases and pointing out evidence of waste, fraud, and abuse.
Removing unnecessary barriers to entrepreneurship and opportunity by sparking citizen involvement early in the regulatory process in order to reduce red tape.
Restoring fairness to our judicial system.
The heart and soul of AFP is our citizen activists. They organize events, write letters to the editor, and petition their lawmakers to uphold freedom and prosperity. Americans for Prosperity has more than 1,800,000 activists in all 50 states and 34 state chapters and affiliates. More than 90,000 Americans in all 50 states have made a financial contribution to AFP or our sister organization, AFP Foundation.
AFP’s network of organized and influential citizen leaders in a growing number of states throughout the country is working to change the nation one state at a time.
AFP mobilizes citizens to effectively make their voices heard in public policy issue campaigns.
AFP educates citizens about where their elected officials stand on our issues.
AFP combines “best-in-class” capabilities built once at the national level with local knowledge from our state staff and on-the-ground grassroots to create economies of scale that win.
AFP leverages our comparative advantages with those of other groups by building coalitions of local, state, and national grassroots organizations fighting for a common cause.

4. FreedomWorks for America (FWFA) https://www.freedomworksforamerica.org/
From the web site:
FreedomWorks for America (FWFA) is focused on spearheading bottom-up grassroots campaigns on behalf of candidates who will promote economic freedom. Unlike other PACs and organizations, FreedomWorks for America will aggressively support candidates who will defend freedom, even in political primaries against establishment or incumbent Republicans. And instead of spending funds on traditional methods like TV and radio advertisements, our financial resources will primarily be spent mobilizing our over a million-strong volunteer base to promote candidates who are champions of freedom. We are the only group with the grassroots base and the campaign expertise to make a real impact on the ground in races across the country.
FreedomWorks for America utilizes its over a million-strong grassroots volunteer base to elect candidates who fight for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom.
FreedomWorks for America believes individual liberty and the freedom to compete increases consumer choices and provides individuals with the greatest control over what they own and earn. FreedomWorks for America aims to elect real champions of freedom who will stand up for these principles in the face of Washington establishment pressure, and who will be standard bearers for the grassroots to rally behind.
FreedomWorks for America’s aggressive, real-time campaigns activate a growing and permanent volunteer grassroots army to show up and demand that our elected officials stand up for freedom. Our decentralized approach means that we have the capability to directly impact elections across the country through citizen action on the local level.
