Head To Jefferson City Wednesday To Fight Common Core and Medicaid Expansion

Senator John Lamping John Lamping is one of the brightest stars for liberty in the Missouri Senate, and he needs our help this week. Let's support liberty by fighting Medicaid Expansion and Common Core State Standards in education.

Tell Us You’re Going!

RSVP on Facebook!

Committees hear two big bills on Wednesday, March 13, in Jefferson City.

  • Medicaid Expansion
  • Common Core restrictions

“The more I look into this Common Core data collection, the more onerous it gets,” Lamping told me. “I’d say it’s Orwellian, but Common Core cuts literature from secondary school curricula, so kids probably won’t know who Orwell was.”

It’s the data collection that scares Senator Lamping and many others.

“They want to collect data on the private lives of children and they families.”

You can read more about Senator Lamping’s bill here.

Life As You’ve Known It Is About To Change

You have a choice. You can drive that change, or you can be swallowed by it. In a free society, people have liberty to do anything except a few prohibited things.

In a totalitarian society, people have liberty to do nothing except a few permitted things.

In a free society, the people have a black list of things they must not do, and government has a white of a few things it may do.

In Barack Obama’s America, the government has the black list and the people live by a short white list.

You have a choice. You can live in a society where a few things are prohibited but everything else is up to you. Or you can live in a society where you must get permission to do anything.

Yes, the choice is that stark. It's up to you whether your society is free or controlled.

And voting is not enough. If you want a free society, you must bring others like you to the polls.

We can help you do that.

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday St. Louis Tea Party’s Liberty HQ is open all day. We can provide everything you need to sustain the free society, including a walk list—paper or smartphone—so you can call out others to vote for freedom with you.

Come to 9966 Lin Ferry Dr, St. Louis, MO 63123, at Lindbergh and Tesson Ferry, to control your destiny.

You are not alone. But you will be if you don’t act.

Would you do me a favor this Saturday?

I try not to ask for much.  Okay, maybe that’s not true, but I’m going to ask you a favor, anyway. Mark this down:  7:00 pm, Saturday, October 1.  It’s weird, I know.  But I’m asking for three presents in one.

First, my mom and dad celebrate their wedding anniversary this week. (62nd?)  Second, my wife and I celebrate our wedding anniversary this week.  Third, next week is my birthday.

I’d ask for a birthday party, but I know you’ll all be worn out from the big Forest Park event on Tuesday, October 4 at 5:00 pm.

So I’m going to ask you for a very simple favor.

Please watch KPLR Channel 11 at 7:00 pm this Saturday, October 1.  If you can’t watch, DVR it and watch later.

October 2011 Calendar – United States

See, I’ll be on. I’m the guest on a brand new news program hosted by Shirley Washington. Panelists include Charles Jaco and Betsey Bruce. (It could be lively!)

The format sounds great: a 15-minute regular news section followed by a 45-minute examination of one topic. So don’t stop watching if it’s straight news at the top of the hour.  Pop some popcorn, crack open a Bud Select, and relax.

Thanks to your work, the topic of the very first episode is the Tea Party Movement.

Since we couldn’t get all 7,000+ people registered in our database into the studio, they asked me to be your humble representative.  I hope I don’t let you down.

So please watch or DVR Saturday at 7, Channel 11.  And drop a nice note to Shirley Washington to thank her for making Tea Party the first topic.

Tell UMSL to Stop Teaching Industrial Sabotage

UofMCommieContact UofM President Steve Owens and demand an immediate end to the communist-led industrial sabotage courses that he’s shoving down your kids’ throats

That’s right, UMSL and UMKC are teaching kids how to destroy business in America. They want your job to go overseas.  And the guy leading the class is a proud communist.

No employer in his right might would hire a graduate of the University of Missouri-St. Louis.  Why? Because your UMSL Faculty teaches students to sabotage their employers. 

Here’s part one of the damning report.

You get that students?  Good luck finding a job after your board of regents hired communists to teach you to sabotage the very companies that you’ll try to work for some day. 

Missouri’s taxpayers fund the University of Missouri system.  At least two of those three schools teach courses on industrial sabotage, violence, and intimidation

In other words, UMSL teaches students to destroy Missouri businesses.  And you pay for it.

Here’s part two of UMSL vs. US Jobs

Want to know why companies flee the United States?  It’s because the union movement has devolved into a criminal enterprise. It’s a union movement supported by brain-dead academics like Judy Ancel and the University of Missouri System President and Chancellors.

Remember, unions work for unions, just as corporations work for corporations.  Union bosses and degenerates like Judy Ancel and her accomplice Don Giljum couldn’t care less about a worker. These two wastes of human flesh live for themselves and for their communist ideals.

Want to voice your opinion on this course? 

Call, write, or email Steve Owens, Interim President
321 University Hall
Columbia, MO 65211
(573) 882-2011
Doh!  You can’t email the U of M President because his email system was shut off!  Can’t take the heat Steven?  Or is UMSL’s computer network the victim of your Communist Party Department’s sabotage?  So call

 

Or the the Curators of the University of Missouri System.

If they dare try to evade accountability, read them this paragraph from their own website:

The University of Missouri, which refers to the institution, in all of its parts, persons, property and relationships wherever situated, owned, operated, controlled, managed or otherwise regulated, is under the supervision or direction of The Board of Curators of the University of Missouri.

I hear people at UMKC are furious.  Not because Missouri taxpayers are being fleeced by communists, but because the taxpayers FOUND OUT!!

Exit question:  Have you contacted U of M?  Your State Rep and Senator?  Please do. Ask them why we pay to have communists teach students to destroy Missouri businesses. 

****ACTION****

And demand that they pass SB1 pass. This is a bill that makes it a little harder for union thugs to drive business out of Missouri.  And it’s about damn time! 

The man to contact about SB1 is Senator Tom Dempsey from the St. Charles area.  Here’s his contact information:

Capitol Office:
  201 W Capitol Ave., Rm. 332
  Jefferson City, Missouri 65101
(573) 751-1141
  FAX: (573) 522-3383
Tom.Dempsey@senate.mo.gov

District Office:
  PO Box 62
  St. Peters, MO 63376
(636) 294-2526

Let Senator Dempsey know that SB1 is vital to Missouri jobs and you want it passed.

UPDATE:  Gateway Pundit is on the UMSL / UMKC story. Also, there’s a report that the local NBC affiliate may be involved in the courses. Folks are checking that out now. And Instapundit has picked up the story.  And the Columbia Daily Tribune weighs in.

Some people will have a bad day tomorrow:

  • Governor Jay Nixon
  • U of M System Interim President Steven Owens
  • The administration at UMSL

Special Thanks to American Majority

American Majority Action deserves a huge dose of the credit for Ed Martin’s tight race for Missouri’s 3rd district in 2010.  But their ground help in September and October was only the tip of the iceberg. 

Dana Loesch and I met American Majority back in April.  Ned Ryun, the founder and president, asked us to speak at the group’s Post-Party Summit in Kansas City.  The weekend was fabulous, informative, and fun.  That’s a winning combination, especially the fun.

Ned kept in touch throughout the summer.  St. Louis Tea Party helped coordinate American Majority training sessions which, in turn, helped spawn tea party and other grassroots organizations around the area, including the Southern Illinois Tea Party.

Testimonial from American Majority Post-Party Summit in KC

When election crunch-time arrived, American Majority Action was there. In addition to helping run our office on Hampton, they produced handouts, yard signs, and other materials to help in the campaign—materials far beyond STLTPC’s budget limits. 

Most valuable, though, were AMA’s people.  Beka Romm, Raz Shafer, Rachel Hassani, Austin James, and, of course, Ned Ryun are friends, leaders, and tireless workers.  They made Ed’s race and the STLTPC their mission and passion. 

Moreover, through AMA’s efforts and evangelism, young volunteers from Arkansas and other states poured into St. Louis the last week before the election for the final drive.  They knocked on thousands of doors, talked to thousands of voters, and spurred on the natives to push a little harder. 

In my view, American Majority is the most promising of young, new education and action organizations in the country.  Ned and his crew deserve our thanks. They helped St. Louis, and they continue to advance the cause of liberty. 

Please take a moment to add your name to their New Leaders project.  And, if you are able, drop a few coins in their bucket.  They do great work.

All-American Alternative to Leftist Omaha Steaks

Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit exposed Omaha Steak’s leftism yesterday.  Omaha pulled its ads from Glenn Beck for ideological reasons. 

We took your comments regarding the Glenn Beck Program to heart. After further review and careful consideration, we have decided to pull all advertising from Glenn Beck programming effective December 20th, 2010.

Then the president of the company, Bruce Simon, tried to deny his political motives

If you want to order top quality meats at great prices, you don’t have to put money in a lefty’s pocket. Instead, order from Pat Boone’s AllAmerican Meat company.

Pat Boone isn’t just a 50s singing star and father of Debbie Boone. He’s also a Tea Partier and pro-military American.

His company donates 5 percent to alleviate world hunger.  So Pat’s not just all-American, pro-Tea Party, and pro-troops, he’s a humanitarian!

Support America. Support humanity.  Hit a liberal in the pocketbook.  Buy All-American Meats.

3rd Time, No Regrets

On September 12, we make our third trip to the Arch Steps to rally our spirits and inform our neighbors.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5j8-s_9-y2E&w=425&h=355]

On February 27, 2009, we met for the for first time.  It started a revolution. It disrupted lives.  It promises to change the course of history, the way the great New Madrid Earthquake forever altered the course of the Mississippi River.

Over the past 18 months, we’ve come a long way. We’ve had a few setbacks.  We’ve stumbled. We’ve grown.

In recent weeks, I’ve sensed a renewed sense of optimism and determination as we emerge from The Dip that inevitably hampers an organization’s rise.

Every time I’ve asked, you’ve responded. So I will ask you one more time, perhaps for the last time:

  • Will you stand with me on the Arch grounds on Sunday, September 12?
  • Will you wear Red, White, or Blue to symbolize your love of liberty, your acceptance of duty, and your faith in the American Ideal?
  • Will you come with a full voice and happy, expectant heart, confident that our communion will lead to victory for First Principles in November?
  • And will you bring you kids and five friends so that they might one day say, “I was there when the American people stood up to tyranny and turned back despotism with power of our faith.”

7 Points on Tea Party Popularity Poll (times 2)

A Washington Post/ABC News poll shows a major shift in sentiment toward (against?) the tea party movement. I would not challenge the accuracy of the results which show the tea party’s popularity waning among Southerners and people 18 to 29. In fact, the poll shows that a full 50 percent of Americans now have a negative view of the tea party.

Sure, there may have been some chicanery with the questions to skew the results. But only a true shift in sentiment would result in change this big. After a year of wall-to-wall coverage of “tea party,” I’d expect a downshift.

I think there are several issues here:

1.  Rand Paul’s performance since the primary has been a net negative.  I pointed out on Kudlow the day after Kentucky primary that his candidacy is not a referendum on the tea party movement. Nothing is. But he and some tea partyers insisted on linking the two, and his handling of controversy has been less than spectacular.

2.  In Nevada, Michigan, and elsewhere, leftists have created fake "tea party" parties that have damaged the brand by running Democrats pretending to be tea partyers. The idea is to split the center-right vote to allow the like of Harry Reid back into Congress.

3.  In-fighting among tea partyers has left a foul taste in the mouths of many. This development shouldn’t be a surprise. The tea party movement has no structure or hierarchy to keep order, and it’s filled with people who are new to this arena. We make mistakes, people.  Get over it.

4.  Some disenchanted Republicans who were early tea partyers have returned to the GOP. That doesn’t mean they won’t continue to fight the good fight. It means they’ll do so under a banner they’re more familiar with.

5.  Zealots and purists have splintered off and driven away more pragmatic reformers. We’ve seen this in numerous places across the country.  When the zealots lose, they tend to take their balls and go home. They also tend to turn off the people who just want their country back.

6.  After a year of hearing “tea party, tea party, tea party,” many people are probably just tired of hearing about it.  I am tired of hearing about it. I want to rack up some damn wins and get about fixing the country, and really don’t care what was call the thing that does it.

7.  We're in The Dip

What makes Ensuring Liberty (and similar orgs) so interesting to me is that they allow the tea party passion to yield actual results. The tea party movement is indispensable for its passion and energy and new blood, but 10,000 angry people don't win elections:  10,000 voters do.

So what do you do?  How do you take this passion, this glorious coming together that we’ve experienced since February 27, 2009, and turn it into a wild victory celebration on November 2?  Let’s start with this list:

  1. Invest in an organization that is engineered to win important races AND to hold the new Congress accountable.  I helped launch Ensuring Liberty to do just that, and we need your support to get there.  Please join today.
  2. Take personal responsibility to register everyone in your house to vote. In Missouri, it’s easy.  Just fill out this form and send it to your election board—directions on the back.
  3. Join the St. Louis Tea Party’s Block Captain/Liberty Evangelism project. Give people the power of personal freedom by handing them a Constitution with your email address on it, saying, “Please take this as  gift. Please read it and decide for yourself whether Washington is living up to the promises in those documents.”
  4. Use the buddy system to make sure everyone you recruit votes in the primary (on August 3 in Missouri) and on November 2.  That means you will commit to ensuring one other person gets to the polls, and someone commits to ensuring you get to the polls.  Take ownership of this job.  Let nothing stop you.
  5. Put in for vacation on November 1, 2, and 3.  Do it right now. You will be needed to get out the vote.  Let nothing stop you. (You will still be partying on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m., so you might as well not even think about working that day.)
  6. Vote early and get your friends and neighbors who agree with you to vote early.
  7. Every night before you go to bed, write a positive journal entry describing the feeling, the sounds, the news on November 2 and 3.  Describe Ed Martin’s victory speech or Robin Carnahan’s concession.  What will Frank Rich Say?  Paul Krugman?  Maureen Dowd?  Keith Olbermann? Chris Matthews?  Would could be more fun that Matthews describing the “Tea bagger temper tantrum” that overturned Congress?   Write Rush Limbaugh’s opening monologue for November 3.  Who will get Dana Loesch’s cool points?

The name of the movement doesn’t matter. It never did.  Names are symbols.  The name came from the name of an event—a “tea party” held to demonstrate that we’d had enough. That phase is over.  Everyone knows we’ve had enough.  Now it’s time to act.
