Meeting tomorrow 3/17

This is a very important meeting. The discussion will focus on the Article V Convention of the States. (See the post below for video against the idea.) Come listen to Mike Faulkenberry present ideas for why it’s a good idea. Ask questions. I don’t know what the best course of action is, but this Convention of States is gaining in strength. Soon this will break into the media (FoxNews) for analysis. We all need more information about this very serious topic. LOCATION: CALDWELL COUNTY LIBRARY, 120 Hospital Ave, Lenoir, NC 28645.

Urgent Action Needed! NCGA to Mandate Vaccinations (Sign the Petition)

Freedom is under attack in the North Carolina General Assembly. State Sen. Jeff Tarte has introduced SB346, a bill to remove the option of religious exemption from vaccines.

Currently under North Carolina statutes, individuals are required to have their immunizations in order to attend school (including home schools, colleges, etc.), with the exception of those who are opposed to the vaccination mandate for religious reasons.  Under the newly-introduced legislation, individuals would no longer have the choice to be exempt from vaccinations on religious grounds; all would be required to receive injections in order to attend any school in North Carolina.

Bethany Wilkinson, a medical freedom advocate and member of the group North Carolina Parents for Vaccine Rights, summarizes the dangers of this legislation, “Senate Bill 346 does not allow selective vaccination. The bill mandates all current vaccines PLUS the flu shot and any new vaccine. This bill does not allow delayed vaccination. This bill would eliminate the religious exemption. This bill provides a commission to enforce the law- FORCE vaccination. I don’t care whether or not you vaccinate, this is a slippery slope folks. Do you want to live in a world where you cannot refuse a medical procedure?”

Sen. Jeff Tarte made the following statements about his proposal via social media: “there no major religions (Christianity, Judaism, Hindu, Buddhism, or Islam) against vaccines. Only two known religious “denominations” oppose vaccines.” A Tarte staffer later stated that the two denominations to which Tarte refers are Christian Scientists and the Taliban.

Lisa Jillani, founder of People Advocating Vaccine Education, noted the irony in Tarte’s claim, stating, “Jeff Tarte is a bigger threat to my religious freedom than the Taliban.” Jillani believes that money may be the driving force behind the legislation, citing Tarte’s sizable contributions from the healthcare industry shown within his campaign finance reports.

People from across the political spectrum are coming together this Tuesday to protest this tyrannical proposal and assert our 1st Amendment rights.

Pattie Curran of North Carolina’s 5th District has stated that she will be delivering opposition petitions to legislators. From her website:

“Many of the vaccines that would be made mandatory are derived from aborted fetal cells. As a freedom-loving pro-life Catholic, I consider it reprehensible for the government to force these injections on those who personally oppose them based on their religious morality. Tell Sen. Jeff Tarte that he is not the authority over individuals’ religious viewpoints by signing the petition below. I will be delivering signatures to legislators in Raleigh this Tuesday.”

You can sign her petition at this link.

Internet Content Regulation

Surprise! Net Neutrality will regulate the content of the internet. Today, Google is up in arms because their search analytics will be based on “factual” sites. That’s code for your search results will exclude FoxNews, WND, TheBlaze, TEA Party Patriots, and Caldwell TEA Party. “Factual” sites will be, MSNBC, Huffington Post, Daily KOS, Washington Post, MediaMatters, and Southern Poverty Law Center.

Besides content regulation, it will cost you and me and our fellow Americans $2 billion in new internet taxes and fees.  But that’s not what makes me angriest about this assault on free-speech.

I want to link to the new regulations, but they have not been released yet. As of this writing, the new regulations for Net Neutrality have not been posted to the FCC’s website yet. What are they hiding? What don’t they want us to know?

FCC Chairman Wheeler was asked to testify at a House Subcommittee on the new regulations. Chairman Wheeler declined. Why wasn’t he held in Contempt of Congress and put in jail???  How does Wheeler get away with not answering questions from Congress? I just don’t understand what is going on.

When the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) regulates broadcast TV, they regulate content, like the more adult TV shows can’t air before 10pm. Yes, broadcast/network TV is regulated, that’s why we have cable options with bad language, sex, and violence. But under Net Neutrality the same will happen to radio. Yes, radio content will be regulated. For every Rush Limbaugh time slot, there will have to be equal time for Left wing shows, moderate shows, LGBT show, global warming shows, etc…. Yes, the content of radio will be effected and your choices will be limited. So even if those Lefty shows have no audience, radio stations will be forced to air them anyway, if they want to keep Rush on the air. So forget having Glenn Beck, Rush, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Laura Ingrahm, Mark Levin, and George Noory all on one station. That won’t be allowed according to FCC regulations.  YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT THIS!!

When you use Google to search for “Global Warming”, the top results are pro-global warming and climate change BS sites.  The Oregon Petition, over 31,000 scientists who have signed a petition stating that Global Warming is not man made, would not show up in the top results. I looked through 4 pages of results, and it didn’t come up. So, I Googled “global warming oregon petition,” and it wasn’t even the top return! Who does control the internet??  It’s only going to get worse if Net Neutrality takes full effect.

Well, the search returns are always ranked by an ultra-top-secret method (analytics) according to something we can’t know. Really, exact method of rankings are secret.  We, conservatives, have long thought the results were politically manipulated, but now it will be way worse under Net Neutrality when the King will determine what is, and is not, “factual.” Ha!!  The King, Barack Hussein Obama, is going to decide what is, and is not, “factual” – oh spare me!

Obama wouldn’t know truth if it was in his roomy mom-jeans. Obama already lives in some alternate universe where the economy is roaring, terrorism isn’t Islamic, everyone has a job, our $18 trillion national debt is a good thing, and there’s no danger awaiting us on the southern border.  He’s nuts. The King has no clothes. It’s 1984.

Yep, I’ve known that Net Neutrality will regulate content of radio, TV, cable, and internet for years.  Why did it take these lefty, free-speech, free-internet groups so long to catch a clue?? Did they relay on what the King’s court told them? If everyone had just listened to the TEA Party groups and conservative talk radio across the country about Obamacare and Net Neutrality, we could have spared them all these shocks.


Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai has been outspoken against Net Neutrality regulations.  He was on FoxNews last week holding up the thousand pages of new regulations, but said he was not permitted to share the contents with anyone until after the vote. “The vote ‘imposes intrusive government regulations that won’t work to solve a problem that doesn’t exist using legal authority the FCC doesn’t have,’ said Ajit Pai….”  It passed 3-2 along party lines.

A collection of Pai’s editorials and commentaries:


The FCC has not released the new regulations yet. I guess they had to pass it to know what’s in it?  As soon as, it is released for public view, I will share the link.

Unconstitutional/illegal amnesty, DHS funding fraud update

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,


Our two U.S. Senators from North Carolina as well as the other Senators.  They need to know you are totally against the amnesty.   This is another step, but it is important.

Contact our two U.S. Senators from North Carolina and tell them to VOTE YES on any separate bill to stop Obama’s amnesty, BUT  BUT if that bill does not pass, they must only vote for the DHS bill if it defunds the amnesty for illegals.  Their voting has to block or defund the amnesty period.  Funding the DHS’s AMNESTY processing is illegal because the court has not resolved its decision that TX Judge ruled unconstitutional.

Call other U.S. Senators and give them an earful —…nators_cfm.cfm

ADD THIS LATEST NEWS: (Wealthy Elites threatening Republicans with money)–

Major GOP Donors Demand Amnesty for Support in 2016

Last Tuesday, three top Republican donors sent a message to all potential Republican presidential candidates: only those who support amnesty can expect to receive money from themselves or their network of large donors. (Partnership for a New American Economy Press Release, Feb. 17, 2015; US News and World Report, Feb. 17, 2015) These three multimillionaire GOP donors, health care CEO Mike Fernandez, fast-food CEO Andrew Puzder, and private equity manager Spencer Zwick, are influential Republican fundraisers who backed Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign. They issued their demand for amnesty during a conference call organized by the pro-amnesty group Partnership for a New American Economy. (Id.; Tuesday’s call was part of a teleconference series moderated by prominent Republican amnesty proponent Grover Norquist, of the group Americans for Tax Reform. (Partnership for a New American Economy Press Release, Feb. 17, 2015)

Despite these donors’ insistence that adopting their immigration position will help the Republican nominee appeal to the general electorate, the evidence shows that the voters who determine the winners of general elections do not actually share the immigration priorities of these multimillionaires. For instance, a Gallup poll last month found that only 7% of American adults want an increase in immigration levels, and nearly six times as many want a decrease. (Gallup, Jan. 29, 2015) Polling from last November’s election showed 80% of voters surveyed wanted new jobs created by the economy to go to American workers and legal immigrants already in the country rather than additional immigrants. (The Polling Company, Nov. 6, 2014) November’s elections also showed that when immigration enforcement is on the ballot, untied to either candidate or party, it wins big. In Democratic leaning Oregon last November, opposition to giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens proved more popular in than any candidate on the ballot, getting a landslide 68% of the vote. (See FAIR Legislative Update, Nov. 11, 2014)


It is truly a shame when some citizens are willing to turn on their fellow citizens in order to get cheap illegal labor……..these CEO’s don’t care that their anti-America greed harms American society, creates lawlessness/crime, with no allegiance or loyalty to the very society they operate in and get wealthy from. NO decency for laws of legal entry that is National Security defense where Legal Immigrants respect America.

It is the President who is threatening our homeland security, no serious background checks can be done on five million illegals, and Obama is taking the side of illegal aliens by giving them legal work permits over millions of citizens who need jobs.
