Don't Freak. It's Just The "R" Word.

By Lloyd Marcus

When you mention the “R” word, some folks on our side (Republicans/Conservatives) feel uncomfortable. I guess in their minds it feeds into the left branding the Tea Party as ignorant racists clinging to their God and guns, as President Obama described us. I have long since stopped caring about what characterless media and liberals think of me.

Candidly, when I first appeared on national TV I was a bit nervous. Oh the humiliation of coming across like an idiot. I was selected to be on a major cable news program as a spokesperson for Tea Party Express. My goal was to set the record straight about the Tea Party.

But, when the host began her interview proclaiming that the Tea Party is racist, no-ifs-ands-or-buts-about-it, I realized that the truth was irrelevant. This woman knew nothing about the Tea Party nor had she attended one rally. I am a black man who has been warmly embraced by fellow patriots at over 400 Tea Party rallies. And yet, I had to listen to this liberal media hack attempting to demonize decent folks and racially divide Americans for her political agenda. Thus, I believe that the liberal media is evil. Though contained during the interview, I was furious.

These people are unworthy of my respect or fear. As for the media's despicable claim that the Tea Party is racist, I have ceased dignifying it with a response. However, I will state that the Tea Party is the last hope for America, salt of the earth good people who simply love their country and reject socialism.

Regarding the “R” word, I must tell you about my new original song titled, “We Are Americans”. Its message is divinely inspired and required to restore America. I was extremely excited about performing the song in my repertoire at tea parties. Surprisingly, “We Are Americans” was not instantly embraced because it contained the “R” word one time towards the end of the song.

The word I am referring to is “Repent”. Some folks are uncomfortable when you add religious faith into the mix. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.” John Adams

Perhaps this explains why the left despises and is so hellbent on getting rid of the Constitution.

For the bible-phobic, let's ponder the “R” word from a non-religious historical point of view. Can you say Roman Empire, boys and girls? The mightiest empire on the planet collapsed from within due to immorality.

Can anyone deny that America is racing to the same end? Homosexuality is aggressively promoted everywhere – in elementary schools, kid's TV programming, sitcoms, dramas, movies, pro-sports and even cooking and home improvement TV shows.

Due to the left's if-you-disagree-you-are-a-hater tactic, absurdly, I must make the following disclaimer. Neither I or true Christians, hate gays or seek their harm. We simply refuse to be forced to embrace a sexual behavior which goes against God's Word. Pressure increases daily to succumb to the “gay is normal” politically correct mandated mindset.

The Bible says the fruit of hard work is wealth and the reward of slothfulness is poverty. American voters have embraced a completely opposite philosophy. Obama defines “fairness”as punishing the rich and rewarding the slothful. In his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Dr Ben Carson stated it brilliantly, Why should a man who pays a billion dollars in taxes be punished?

The assault on the traditional American family. Have you noticed the attack on dads? Long gone are the days of “Father Knows Best”. On modern TV dads are idiots and the butt of jokes. Twenty years ago while working as a graphic designer at a TV station, I was reprimanded for using an illustration of a traditional family (man, woman and two kids) on the cover of a brochure. Management said the illustration was offensive because families come in all configurations – single moms, same sex parents and etc.

Could you imagine a day when an image of a traditional family would be deemed offensive? Families are the bedrock of our society. Most black kids grow up fatherless.

Hollywood and the media typically portray kids as being wiser and smarter than their parents. Apparently, public schools agree because children may acquire abortion services without parental knowledge or consent.

An irresponsible rapper who produced eleven babies out-of-wedlock by ten women was offered his own reality TV show showcasing how he copes with all his babies' mommas. Meanwhile the media treats pro football star Tim Tebow with disdain for publicly displaying a moral compass.

Another symptom of the cancerous deterioration and racial polarization of our culture is that the “I Support Chris Dorner”(black cop killer) Facebook page received 3000 “likes”. Liberals believe blacks are eternal victims and should be allowed to have “issues”.

Is America headed the way of the Roman Empire? You betcha!

The non religious definition of “repent” is to change one's mind – to make a 180 degree change of direction. Clearly, it is time for America to “repent”.

Please listen and enjoy my song, We Are Americans.

Against the Ghetto Plantation

(Reprinted with permission)

By Jeanne Donovan

If Frederick Douglass walked today's ghettos, he would witness a new-age style of slavery, plantations without the lash and chains. He would soon be outraged that government overseers are perpetuating generations of dependency through policies designed to capture the votes of the ignorant. Of the people he would ask, "What have you done with your freedom? Where is your dignity and self-respect?" 

Frederick Douglass was born about 1818 on a Maryland plantation. Following common practice, he was taken from his mother to be raised with a brood of other children until he was old enough to work. He did not know his father. At the age of eight or nine, his master sent him to work for the Auld family in the city of Baltimore. Hugh Auld was a shipbuilder.

Douglass served as a houseboy to mistress Sofia and as a caretaker of their little son Tommy. Sophia had had no experience with slaves. She was a kindhearted and pious young woman, who treated Douglass with the same gentleness that she showed her own son. Her kindness shocked Douglass: "I had been treated as a pig on the plantation; I was treated as a child now." (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, Pg. 115)

While master Auld was working, Sophia read aloud to the boys from the Bible. The sound of her reading sparked Douglass' curiosity as to the "mystery of reading" (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, Pg. 117) that he said "roused in me the desire to learn." When he asked if she would teach him to read, she introduced him to Noah Webster's textbook, The American Spelling Book, a popular "blue-back speller" that sold an amazing 122 million copies in its lifetime (E. Jennifer Monaghan, A Common Heritage: Noah Webster's Blue-Back Speller, Pg. 11) only the Bible and McGuffey's Readers sold more copies. Douglass quickly mastered the alphabet, and was spelling three- and four-letter words when his education came to an abrupt halt.

When master Auld discovered that Sophia had been teaching Douglass to read, he rebuked her because educating slaves was unlawful and unsafe. Douglass heard Auld say, "he should know nothing but the will of his master, and learn to obey it." . . . "If you learn him now to read, he'll want to know how to write; and, this accomplished, he'll be running away with himself." (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pg. 117)

Those words pierced Douglass' soul: "Very well," thought I; "knowledge unfits a child to be a slave." . . . and from that moment I understood the direct pathway from slavery to freedom." Douglass became ". . . more resolute in seeking intelligence." (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pg. 118) He would teach himself to read and write, and then he would have the tools to escape bondage.

During his remaining seven years with the Aulds, Douglass surreptitiously accessed Tommy's discarded speller and copybooks. Where space permitted in the copybooks, Douglass mirrored Tommy's writing. On other occasions, Douglass used the top of a flour barrel on which to copy text from the Bible and a book of hymns that he had smuggled away.

Douglass also relied upon the help of sympathetic white boys:
I used to carry, almost constantly, a copy of Webster's spelling book in my pocket; and, when sent on errands, or when playtime was allowed me, I would step, with my young friends, aside, and take a lesson in spelling. I generally paid my tuition fee to the boys, with bread, which I also carried in my pocket. For a single biscuit, any of my hungry little comrades would give me a lesson more valuable to me than bread. (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pg. 124)
By the age of 13, Douglass was able to read well enough that he could follow current events in the newspaper, which is how he learned about the abolition movement and the Free States.
On one occasion, Douglass overheard some boys talking about The Columbian Orator, an anthology of famous speeches. Somehow he managed to save 50 cents, and bought the book for his secret library. The Columbian Orator increased Douglass' vocabulary and, most importantly, taught him how to express his thoughts.
The reading of these speeches added much to my limited stock of language, and enabled me to give tongue to many interesting thoughts... I had now penetrated the secret of all slavery and oppression, and had ascertained their true foundation to be in the pride, the power and the avarice of man... With a book of this kind in my hand... I was equal to a contest with the religious advocates of slavery, whether among the whites or among the colored people, for blindness, in this matter, is not confined to the former. I have met many religious colored people... who are under the delusion that God requires them to submit to slavery, and to wear their chains with meekness and humility. I could entertain no such nonsense as this; and I almost lost my patience when I found any colored man weak enough to believe such stuff...
...I saw through the attempt to keep me in ignorance; I saw that slaveholders would have gladly made me believe that they were merely acting under the authority of God, in making a slave of me... The feeding and clothing of me, could not atone for taking my liberty from me. (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pp. 126-128)
Aged 20, Frederick Douglass ran away to the free state of Massachusetts. There were many hardships to overcome in the years ahead, but he made the most of his freedom. Initially he joined the abolitionist movement. In time Douglass broke with them because they merely wanted to change hearts, whereas Douglass wanted to alter slavery laws. He gave heartrending speeches in the free states, as well as in England and Ireland. He founded The North Star, an antislavery newspaper. Douglass wrote three autobiographies, each book reanalyzing the chapters of his life and recording his evolving views of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. At first he saw no place for the black man in the founding documents, but in time he reversed his arguments.

Douglass became so renowned in the campaign to emancipate slaves that Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, invited him to the White House as an adviser. They developed a close friendship, and eventually Douglas embraced Lincoln's republicanism: "I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress." When Lincoln was assassinated, Douglass mourned saying, "No people or class of people in this country, have better reason for lamenting the death of Abraham Lincoln, than have the colored people." (James Oakes, The Radical and the Republican: Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, and the Triumph of Antislavery Politics, pg. 256) When asked what was Lincoln to the colored people, Douglass described all of Lincoln's predecessors as "facile and servile instruments of the slave power,[sic] Abraham Lincoln, while unsurpassed in his devotion, to the welfare of the white race, was also in a sense hitherto without example, emphatically, the black man's President: the first to show any respect for their rights as men." (James Oakes, The Radical and the Republican: Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, and the Triumph of Antislavery Politics, pg. 256)

Imagine this man, Frederick Douglass, walking the slums of Chicago or Detroit, and witnessing the desolation of its peoples. In My Bondage and My Freedom, Douglass laments that "Slavery does away with fathers, as it does with families." (pg. 51) To beget more wealth, women were raped by their masters who, without remorse, sold their kin. Destruction of the family continues today, and has been expanded to the whole people, regardless of their origins. State overseers reward single women with welfare benefits for every child they bear, so long as no father is in the home. Douglass warned, "Make a man a slave, and you rob him of moral responsibility. Freedom of choice is the essence of all accountability." (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pg. 149)

In the old days, slave babies were separated from their mothers shortly after birth and placed in the care of others until they were old enough to be sold or rented out. Asking questions about parentage was evidence of impudent curiosity that resulted in lashings. Today, children face a different hazard. Women with unwanted pregnancies can abort their babies, and overseers pay the clinic. Planned Parenthood sucks the babies from their mother's wombs, and dumps their bodies into the trash. Those babies will never show impudent curiosity.

In the nineteenth century slaves slept on the floor without blankets in unheated hovels. Rising at dawn, they worked until dark. They were expected to survive on meager rations, and nurse their own wounds. Today's slaves live in cookie-cutter government housing. They receive food stamps, health benefits, and free cell phones. Even if jobs were available, they are not required to work. Obesity is a growing problem. Bored youths kill each other for trivial reasons.

In Douglass' era, slaves did not know the days of the month or the months of the year, only seasonal events like planting and harvesting times. Ignorance was enforced when Democrats passed laws that forbade educating slaves. Education is a right for everyone now, but educators have thrown away the effective alphabet and phonics method used in the blue-back speller and replaced it with whole language instruction, a technique that impedes learning. Over time, the result has been a population of poorly educated people, easily fooled into believing that the government is a benevolent caretaker (so long as it is run by Democrat overseers.)

If, by magic, Douglass could meet the inhabitants of the ghettos, what might he say to them? He would remind them that Knowledge is Power, and much more importantly, Knowledge is Freedom. He would encourage them to take practical steps -- to master reading and writing by every means possible; to ask for help from educated people; to listen to educated speakers. And he will suggest that something old should be new again; reprint Webster's blue-back speller and The Columbian Orator.

State of the Union Address: Instigator on Jailhouse Steps

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Obama is the ultimate bully armed with the ultimate bully pulpit. He is an extremely smooth vindictive instigator. Obama speeches are thinly veiled “hit lists” targeting the rich, Republicans and Conservatives for destruction, retribution and revenge by his low-info minions. Obama is the movie clichĂ© loudmouth guy in westerns who stands on the jailhouse steps and works town folks into a frenzied mob. The rabble-rouser yells, “If I were you guys, I would not allow them to get away with it!”

In response, the angry mob breaks into the jail, overtakes the sheriff, drags out the terrified prisoner and hangs him without a trial as they are too enraged to wait for the judge to arrive on the morning train.

Obama uses his jailhouse-steps-instigator tactic to destroy his opposition, thus, winning him every policy debate. Beginning with his 2008 presidential campaign, the message of every Obama speech and supportive marketing is Republicans are selfish racists who want you poor and/or dead. If I were you guys, I would not allow them to get away with it!

A prime example is team Obama's irresponsible blatantly lying Medicare ad showing Republican Paul Ryan murdering granny by pushing her over a cliff. The truth is Ryan's Medicare reform proposal did not affect people over 55 years old and simply gave citizens more options and control of their health care.

Republicans/Conservatives misjudged the effectiveness of team Obama's over-the-top crazy absurd lying rhetoric. Little did we know that low info voters (TMZ, late night talk show and Two and a Half Men viewers) were perceiving it as the gospel truth.

Occupy Wall Street was nothing more than an instigator Obama and company's created mob. OWS so-called 99 percenters politically dragged out the one percenters and politically lynched them in the public square without a fair trial or anyone speaking the truth about how prosperity is achieved.

A wise man said there is nothing worse than a small person in a powerful position. Tragically, America has elected a lying deceitful small man who viciously targets achievers; a bully armed with the ultimate bully pulpit committed to destroying any opposition to him transforming America into his fantasy socialistic utopia.

My analysis of Obama's State of the Union Address – shameless lies, more lies and propaganda designed to woo low info voters.

My fellow Americans, here is the link to a one minute video exposing the real State of the Union.

Yes Rush, There IS Resistance to Obama!

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Rush Limbaugh said something extremely profound at the end of his depressing monologue in which he declared that there is no resistance to Obama. Rush said sooner or later something will turn it around. It always does.

Well, the time is now and that something is us! We The People in the form of the tea party are still here. Though severely wounded, extremely discouraged, brutally battered, devastatingly betrayed and soundly rejected, we the resistance survived and are poised for battle. What's that line from the pop song? “What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.”

We cried, moped and many in a moment of frustration and hopelessness, temporarily gave up. We are human. Our pain is great. But when the dust cleared, and upon stabilizing our emotions, patriots defaulted back to what motivated them to join the resistance four years ago – love – love for the greatest nation on the planet and a burning desire not to allow it to be transformed into an abomination of the vision of our Founding Fathers. No Mr President, not on our watch!

As a Christian, I believe that as long as we stay faithful to Godly principles and values (Conservatism) we can expect a miracle at any moment. The Bible tells how one day Joseph was hopeless in prison with no release in sight. The next day Joseph was summoned to the King which led to him becoming a ruler, the King's right hand man. With God any and all things are possible.

Also, history confirms that no one knows enough to be fatalistic. From the ashes of the Goldwater campaign came the beginning of the legacy of Ronald Reagan.

After Bill Clinton beat George HW Bush in 1992 there was a sense that Clinton and the New Democrat Party were unstoppable, but it was the 1994 Midterms that saw the emergence of Newt Gingrich and the Republican Revolution that resulted in one of the largest shifts in political power in Congress in our nation's history.

Someone wisely said, “Pray for help, but swim for home!” In other words, along with praying for our nation, the resistance/patriots are organizing, and preparing, everyone doing their part to restore America to the constitutional principles of individual liberty and freedom on which our country was founded.

We at Conservative Campaign Committee have launched our first national TV ad, The Imperial President, which exposes Obama's unlawful tyranny. has organized Day of Resistance rallies across America protesting Obama's agenda.

God, Guns and the Constitution national town hall meetings are happening across America. 

Strategically ignored by the liberal media, a huge Pro-Life rally took place a few weeks ago. 

Resistance to Obama is out there folks. Karl Rove coming out of the closet announcing that the GOP is at war with the Tea Party could be a gift from God – serving to fire up demoralized patriots. Mr Rove, if you think the Tea Party was a force to be reckoned with in the past - you “ain't” seen nothing yet.

So yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus (Barack Obama). And yes Rush Limbaugh, there is resistance to Obama/Santa Claus – The Tea Party!

Piers Morgan: Reviving the Conflict of 1776

The Democrats have to love dividing our nation, whether it is about lost rights and liberties, its eternal quest to have government control everything, or fan the flames or racism -- falsely accusing firearm owners and NRA of being KKK and Nazi. Piers Morgan, working at CNN (Communist News Network) is not a United States citizen, yet constantly telling We the People what kind of firearms we should not have or how much we can purchase. Because of a very few, compared to the population of firearm owners, commit horrific crimes like the corporate-government media delightfully portrays -- ignoring many more circumstances where people defend themselves because police have not showed up yet, or were unable to be notified of a crime in progress. Too many Americans have become sheeple or, as Alex Jones calls them as the video at left depicts: lemmings. [Lemmings actually do not jump off cliffs, although sometimes they die trying to cross rivers.]
