@AGUGrizzlies: #Leadership: Happy Fourth Of July From American Grizzlies United

agu-o4p-white-o4pstates

As we gather with our friends and family today to celebrate The Fourth of July, many Americans will notice that something does not feel right in our country. Something is wrong. Something is terribly wrong.

Is our country fundamentally transforming right before our very eyes?

Socialism Strawberry Shortcake I

It doesn’t have to.

Our founding mothers and fathers left us with a sacred vision and framework for America’s foundation. These sacred structures are still alive. They continue to live inside each and every concerned American. We are all united by the universal pursuit of Liberty. It may be hard to point out these days, but the natural desire for freedom continues to live within us.

America’s founding mothers and fathers were leaders. So are we. Each and every one of us is a leader. Leadership lives within us just as leadership lived within our founders. Our founders burning desire for a country where man was free to rule himself drove their leadership the same as it drives us today. American Leadership is an inherent, permanent, and inseparable component that lives on today inside of every concerned American.

Even though today’s challenges are causing dismay and turmoil, let’s use this Independence Day to remember that historically America always overcomes our foes through the confidence, the certainty, and the idealism of: New Leadership.

Today we celebrate the birth of America. We celebrate the Declaration of Independence entrusted to us. We celebrate the self-evident truths within the document that are the core of our heritage.

As Leaders, let’s remember these self-evident truths as we fight to restore America.

We are the New American Leadership: Let’s make America feel right again.

Our work continues.

via @AGUGrizzlies: Help Rep Steve Stockman @SteveWorks4You Blue-Slip The #Amnesty Bill Today

AGU-O4P-o4pstates

While Rep. Paul Ryan is preparing for his July 10th debut in his starring role as the Marco Rubio of the House, Rep. Steve Stockman has come up with an interesting way to hold Speaker Boehner accountable to his promise.

Rep. Stockman to Blue-Slip Amnesty Bill

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) has begun an endeavor to brandish House Leadership to Blue-Slip the S. 744 amnesty bill passed in the Senate. The Blue-Slip process basically lets the House refudiate any bill passed by the Senate in which the Senate created the imposing of new taxes. The U.S. Constitution gives the House alone the authority to commence tax distortions changes.

Rep. Stockman said in a release:

Not only is the Senate amnesty bill an abuse of taxpayers and immigrants, it’s utterly unconstitutional. The Senate cannot invent its own amnesty taxes. I hope Speaker Boehner will immediately kill the amnesty bill through a constitutionally-required blue slip. As long as the amnesty bill sits in the House it poses a threat to taxpayers and immigrants.

Several provisions of the Senate amnesty bill create new taxes, a violation of the “origination clause,” Article I, Section 7, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution, which states “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.”

Section 2102 of the amnesty bill requires the payment of certain taxes and forgives the payment of other taxes as a condition of receiving amnesty and other benefits. The Constitution prohibits the Senate from approving bills that raise revenue.

The Congressional Budget Office flatly states “enacting S. 744 would have a wide range of effects on federal revenues, including changes in collections of income and payroll taxes, certain visa fees that are classified as revenues, and various fines and penalties. Taken together, those effects would increase revenues by $459 billion over the 2014-2023 period.”

While we are waiting for congress to get back to work in DC (and for Rep. Paul Ryan’s debut as the Marco Rubio of the House), let’s do what we can to support Rep. Steve Stockman.

Let’s all give a quick phone call to our congress Rep.’s in their local offices.

Let them know that:

- The Senate Amnesty Bill is exactly the same mistake as the 1986 Amnesty Bill that gave amnesty first and promised border security never later.

- The Senate Amnesty Bill rewards 11 million illegal immigrants and only promises that the border will eventually be secured.

- The Senate Amnesty Bill hands out 33 million new green cards over the next 10 years while 20 million Americans can’t find jobs.

- The Senate Amnesty Bill would not be good for unemployed Americans.

- The Senate Amnesty Bill is offensive to those of us who still support the rule of law.

- The Senate Amnesty Bill should be prevented from coming to the House floor for a vote.

Stay tuned for more things we can all do to help restore America!

Coming Soon from American Grizzlies United: Plan B(oehner)

Our work continues.

Rep. Schweikert on SarahNET Radio: Even Left Losing Obama Blinders

SarahNET-Radio-O4PStates

Rep. David Schweikert (R), AZ-6 said on the Palin Update with Kevin Scholla that the targeting scandal involves not just the IRS, but other agencies such as the Forestry Department and the EPA. Along with Paul Gosar (R), AZ-4, Trent Franks (R), AZ-8, and Matt Salmon (R), AZ-5, he will be hosting a public Town Hall on July 1 to discuss the scandal with constituents. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin expressed her support of the Town Hall in a Facebook Status post and had endorsed both Reps. Schweikert and Gosar in 2010. Rep. She re-endorsed Rep. Gosar in 2012 and both men re-elected.

Rep. Schweikert said these scandals are a result of big government because the “number one objective of any large organization is” its own self-preservation.

Among other things, the Town Hall will address the EPA’s demand that a power plant adopt an expensive operational change that will result in higher energy and water rates and even affect agreements with Native American groups in the Southwest.

Scholla referenced a poll which highlights Americans’ distrust of the federal government and the feeling our liberties are under attack. He asked Rep. Schweikert if he had enough help in D.C. “No, but it is fascinating finding even members of the left pulling the blinders off and seeing what this administration is up to.” He said the mainstream media was complicit until the Associated Press’ phones were wiretapped.

The Town Hall will be held in Prescott, AZ and details are available at the four representatives’ websites.

Rep. Schweikert said it is no longer enough to go to meetings and rallies. We need to get involved in campaigns and get the message out to the neighborhoods. He said leftists know the ballot box is the way to gain control; we need to use it to defend the Constitution.

Steel Resolve: Status Quo has Got to Go

In her weekly Steel Resolve segment, Steelman discussed how the Farm Bill failed to pass because of an unwitting alliance of Tea Partiers and Democrats over Food Stamps. She said the practice of burying unrelated items in legislation has led to out-of-control spending. She said House Republicans should work to eliminate this legislative practice.

Teaser, Downloadable Audio

David Schweikert is the guest on The Palin Radio Update with Kevin Scholla! The Arizona Congressman will take part in an important Congressional Field Hearing in Prescott, Arizona, next month to discuss the IRS and other abuse scandals and to hear from constituents. Schweikert will be joined by Paul Gosar, Trent Franks, and Matt Salmon. Tune in for a preview about this event that Sarah Palin calls “a PERFECT way to kick-off the Fourth of July week”. Governor Palin returns to Fox News Channel in grand style. A Louisiana lawmaker is highlighted by Palin after ditching the Democrats. Larry Mendte comes to the defense of Trig Palin in a thoughtful commentary against Bill Maher’s garbage routine. Plus, Father’s Day wishes from Sarah Palin. Also, Steel Resolve, our weekly commentary with Sarah Steelman is featured.

@AGUGrizzlies: Monday Sens Vote On Scribbled #Amnesty, #Immigration Amendment #WTF

AGU-O4P

Can you read these hand written notes scribbled on the Amnesty Amendment?

HERE: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3034641/posts

Immigration Resize III

If you had taken an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution could you in your good conscience vote on something scrawled on an amendment for a very serious issue (heck, even the naming of a Library or building) that looks like notes from a Junior High book report?

Well, this is exactly what is going to happen tomorrow in Versailles Washington, DC!

On Monday the Senate is set to vote on an amendment (approx. 5 parts or 5 pages – reports vary. Hey, didn’t Obama promise everything to be voted on to be online for a few days before the voting took place?) to be added to the growing 1,075 page #AmnestyFirstBorderSecurityNever Bill.

Remember the other day when we told you American Grizzlies United had a team of Grizzlies hand delivering letters to Senators in DC? Well, we left something out. Hard working AGU grassroots volunteers not only delivered letters – they also took something.

SENATE STAFF BUSINESS CARDS!

If you find voting on this scribbled amnesty amendment as completely unacceptable as American Grizzlies United does please use some of the email addresses below to email your concerns to these Senators and their legislative assistants:

Senator Marco Rubio

Rubio Chief of Staff Cesar Conda: Cesar_Conda@rubio.Senate.gov

Legislative Assistant Scott Parkinson: scott_parkinson@rubio.senate.gov

Legislative Coordinator Mary Hall: marycatherine_hall@rubio.senate.gov

Senator Kelly Ayotte

Kelsey Patten Staff Assistant: kelsey_patten@ayotte.senate.gov

Senator Joe Manchin

Legislative Aide Beau Tremitiere: beau_tremitiere@manchin.senate.gov

Senator John McCain

Legislative Correspondent Douglas Smith: doug_smith@mccain.senate.gov

Assistant David Cole: david_cole@mccain.senate.gov

Senator Lindsey Graham

Legislative Director Matthew Rimkunas: matt_rimkunas@lgraham.senate.gov

Senator Rand Paul

Chief of Staff William Henderson: william_henedrson@paul.senate.gov

Senator Tim Scott

Legislative Director Charles Cogar: charles_cogar@scott.senate.gov

Senator Deb Fischer

Legislative Correspondent Nick Morrison: nick_morrison@fischer.senate.gov

Beginning Monday morning telephone calls can be made.

Here are the phone numbers for Senator Marco Rubio:

(202)-224-3041 (DC)

(407) 254-2573 (Orlando)

(305) 418-8553 (Miami)

(813) 977-6450 (Tampa)

(850) 599-9100 (Tallahassee)

(239) 213-1521 (Naples)

(561) 775 3360 (Palm Beach)

Here are the phone numbers for Senator Lindsey Graham (who is up for reelection):

(202) 224-5972 (DC)

(864) 250-1417 (Greenville)

(803) 933-0112 (Columbia)

(843) 669-1505 (Florence NOTE: This is Florence SC not the one in Italy although this legislation is very Big Govt. European)

(843) 849-3887 (Mt. Pleasant)

(803) 366-2828 (Rock Hill)

(864) 646-4090 (Pendleton)

Here are the phone numbers for Senator John McCain:

202-224-3324 (DC)

603-436-7161 (Portsmouth)

603-752-7702 (Berlin NOTE: This Berlin is in NH even though the legislation jives well with Citizen of the World BS)

603-880-3335 (Nashua)

603-622-7979 (Manchester)

It makes absolutely no difference if you live in these states or not. Remind the senatorial aides that in today’s social media political world, people donate money across state lines, make phone calls on behalf of Senatorial Candidates across state lines, engage in Twitter Storms across state lines, contribute to New Media and Citizen Journalism across state lines, and can basically make or break a candidates campaign from across state lines.

Tell the Senators that:

- That they must read every amendment to the bill before they vote.

- Immigration Reform is a very serious issue and Americans deserve it to be done correctly.

- We want border security first.

- No fence, no deal.

- Congress tried legalization first/border security later in the 1980′s, and President Regan was lied to by the Democrats, and the border was never secured even though he was promised it would be secured.

- We will not accept Amnesty again without verified border security.

- We will only accept legal immigration.

- We want the border to be verified as secure by both the Government Accountability Office AND the Governors of the states on the border.

- Once this has been 100% accomplished and verified. We will accept appropriate and fair legislation debate about introducing work programs and a reasonable pathway to citizenship.

Stay tuned for more…

Our work continues.

Gov. Palin: Check out “Cashin’ In” FNC, Sat, 11:30 EDT

sarah-facebook-o4p

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

Check out "Cashin’ In" this Saturday at 11:30am ET (7:30am AK time) on FNC, with replay at 4:30pm ET. Eric Bolling and I will talk about our federal government’s many abuse scandals. What’s needed now is an empowerment of the average American, "the little guy", who knows that a healthy distrust of our federal government is warranted. Today, the Washington-connected permanent political class are cashing in on the backs of the little guys. I say enough is enough. Are enough of us "little guys" ready for a revolution against government corruption?

@AGUGrizzlies: AGU Volunteer Delivers #Immigration Letter To Senator @KellyAyotte Today

AGU-O4P-o4pstates

Today a volunteer from the American Grizzlies United Pennsylvania team is hand delivering letters to Senators about his concerns in the Amnesty Immigration Bill. Here is a copy of the letter being delivered to Senator Kelly Ayotte‘s office:

June 19, 2013

Dear Senator Kelly Ayotte

I am a grassroots volunteer for American Grizzlies United. In the 2010 election cycle I helped many candidates get elected. I donated my time, my energy, and sometimes I even donated a dollar here and there when I could afford it.

You were one of those candidates. I worked very hard trying to get you and other candidates elected because I believed in the common sense conservative principles talked about in the campaigns.

I am very concerned about your vote on the immigration bill. I have tried my best to make it through the 1000 page bill, and to be honest it doesn’t even seem like an immigration bill at all. It seems more like yet another spending bill with an entirely political agenda.

It is likely that President Obama and Senator Reid will compromise just enough to make sure the bill first passes the senate and then fails in the house. Then, because immigration is a popular fundraising and wedge issue, it can be exploited in the 2014 midterms.

I believe that America deserves better. Immigration Reform is a very serious issue, and it should be done correctly.

I remember when President Reagan got duped by the Democrats in the 1980′s. President Reagan was promised border security after amnesty. It never happened.

This bill, in its present form is not in the best interest of all Americans. This bill completely contradicts the positions you talked about in your 2010 senate campaign. I believed you when you spoke during your campaign. That is why I worked so hard to help elect you.

If you vote for this bill it will ensure President Obama’s fundamental transformation of America into a country our founders would not recognize.

I plan on working very hard in the 2014 midterms and then again in the 2016 general election, to make sure good candidates get elected. I will work very hard for candidates who I trust and believe in.

If you vote YES on this very serious bill, it will be very difficult for me to help you in your reelection bid for the senate.

I respectfully ask that you consider my concerns before you vote on this bill.

Sincerely,

Christopher H Fromme

American Grizzlies United

Gov. Palin: Prescott, AZ Congressional Field Hearing to Discuss Uncontrolled Gov’t

voices-be-heard-o4pstates

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

Congressmen Gosar (AZ-04), Salmon (AZ-05), Schweikert (AZ-06) and Franks (AZ-08) are hosting a Congressional Field Hearing in Prescott, Arizona, on July 1st to discuss the IRS and other abuse scandals and hear directly from their constituents about their concerns with this out-of-control federal government. This is a PERFECT way to kick-off the Fourth of July week and usher in Independence Day!

We need more members of Congress to engage We the People in town hall style meetings to discuss all the government abuse scandals just as they did in 2009 and 2010 with Obamacare. Those Obamacare town halls became a hallmark of the Tea Party movement, and we need that same energy now more than ever. Let the people come together and speak up. Now is the time.

In a Pew poll taken last January, 53% of Americans believed the federal government is a threat to their own personal rights and freedom. Imagine what that percentage would be now that we know more about all of these abuse scandals? A majority of Americans now feel that their government is a threat to their liberty — not just bloated, incompetent, and bankrupt, but an actual threat to their liberty.

I look forward to addressing this justified distrust of our out-of-control Big Brother government at the "Road to Majority" conference in D.C. this Saturday.

@StrongTea1776 Launch Monthly Save the 2nd Rallies

dsc-0007-o4pstates

The Richmond County Tea Party Patriots yesterday launched its series of monthly “Save the Second” rallies at the corner of Richmond Ave. and Arthur Kill Road, the same location where the organization rallied to defeat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the ill-begotten NYSAFE Act a few short weeks ago.

This was simple hour-long street visibility rally with no formal speakers. Many motorists including the driver of one New York City bus honked in support. As the mercury soared well into the 90s, Bobby Zahn, President of the Tea Party Patriots said, “we all have ‘better’ places to be. I could be in my freaking swimming pool right now. But, you know what? There is no better place to be than here standing up for our freedoms.”

A member of a local gun club spoke about the importance of peacefully protesting and staying engaged in the political process so that the Second Amendment never has to be used for its original intended purpose. Zahn said it was critical to ensure that there is is an “end game” plan for our efforts, to have those honking motorists get engaged and involved rather than forgetting at the next red light.

Tea Party Patriots Core Committee member and American Grizzlies United / Organize4Palin NY State Coordinator, Ron Devito was present at the rally and waved a “Save the Second Amendment” sign written by Virginia Ross.

Richmond County Tea Party Patriots will be holding “Save the Second” rallies on the second of each month at noon if the date falls on a Saturday or Sunday; 1800 / 6 PM if the date falls Monday through Friday. The current location is the northwest corner of Richmond Ave. and Arthur Kill Road, but that is likely to change.
