***UPDATE*** TUMAB: CRISIS IN THE MAKING AT THE BUNDY RANCH **URGENT PLEASE SHARE**

Bundy Ranch Documentary 

 

URGENT!! ALERT!! A Call For Help At The Bundy Ranch

Message from Jack Kimball (NH)
“Folks,
The situation at the Bundy Ranch is getting worse. We have an additional team heading to the Bundy Rach that will arrive tomorrow. We also have a small team from our CT friends that will arrive at the Ranch around the same time. Many more are needed. Spread the word. Also, you must watch this video that just came out. It’s called the Bundy Ranch Documentary. It features our very own Jerry DeLemus and Alex Bieniect. Make it go viral!”
Bundy Ranch Documentary (11:17), View HERE.
“Important Summary Regarding Why the Bundy Ranch Event is happening
Some of you on the facebook page clearly do NOT have accurate information regarding Mr. Bundy and why this standoff has occurred so here is the best summary of the facts, to date. First of all, the Bundy’s owned their Ranch since 1870. They have lived their with their family for several generations. Back then and through the 1930′s the Bundy family, along with some 52 other cattle ranchers, used the expansive land surrounding them, for the grazing of their cattle herds. This they did for FREE as they were all tax payers and were entitled to the use of Public land. Then came the Bureau of land Management in the early 1940′s. That’s when the Fed’s took over control of the land. Once that happened, they established “grazing fees” to compensate for the use of the land. Bundy’s family actually paid those grazing fees for quite sometime until Mr. Bundy figured out their scheme. Then in 1993 he stopped paying the gazing fees and offerred to pay them to his own County. They refused to accept the fees. The reason he did this is that the BLM began increasing the grazing fees along with coming up with EPA issues like protecting the dessert tortoise. Thus they began restricting the grazing land and forcing the Cattlemen out. They used the Cattlemens own grazing fees to buy them out for a pittance of what the Ranches were worth. They were very successful at this in that they eliminated 52 or the 53 Cattle Ranchers that were originally there. Mr. Bundy is the last man standing. The reason 1993 is significant is that Agenda 21 was signed onto by George H W Bush in Rio in 1992 and soon later, bill Clinton began an agressive campaign to adhere to this UN plan to eliminate human beings from the majority of the open land in the West. Barak Obama has now put Agenda 21 in warp speed. The we find out that Harry Reid and his son have a sweetheart deal with a Chinese Company to come in and build a solar panel faciltiy on that very land. That’s why the strong armed effort was made to eliminate Mr. Bundy and his family. So, don’t believe the MSM BS. This is, and has been, an insideous effort to steal a man property and force him off his land. If you haven’t figured this out by now then you really have to begin paying attention. The fight for our Nations Liberty has began at the Bundy Ranch. Brave NH Patriots are there to defend Mr. Bundy and his family. They know what may happen to them and they are willing to pay that price. How about all of you?”

Stand Up!

WND EXCLUSIVE Cattle Shot, Buried On Bundy Ranch

Nevada family in dispute with feds posts disturbing images

 Bob Unruh

The Nevada rancher in a fight with the federal government over grazing land his family has been using since the late 1800s is revealing some of the damage he blames on the U.S. government: cattle shot and killed and then dumped into trenches and buried.
The Bureau of Land Management contends Cliven Bundy owes more than $1.2 million in grazing fees, but Bundy insists the federal government is overstepping its authority, charging him to use the same land on which his ancestors grazed cattle a century ago.
The conflict reached a flashpoint when the government moved in armed officers April 5 and started rounding up the family’s cattle with the apparent intention of selling them off and keeping the money.
However, hundreds of individuals the family has described as “patriots” also moved in. Rather than spark a pitched battle, the federal officers retreated after a weeklong standoff, with Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., promising that the battle was not over.
The standoff  has resulted in damaged fences, damaged water troughs and dead cattle, the family charged.
Family members have created a website and a Facebook page where images have been posted.
One of the images was accompanied by a note that said: “Digging up 1 of the HUGE holes where they threw the cows that they had ran to death or shot. I feel that this NEEDS to be put out for the public to see.”

PLD: Ranchers And Empire In The American West


by  

This column by Ryan W. McMaken originally appeared on the Ludwig von Mises Institute website on April 14, 2014.
The militarized siege of a cattle ranch near Bunkerville, Nev., drew national attention as dozens of federal agents, armed with machine guns, sniper rifles, helicopters and more descended on the ranch to seize cattle and people and generally to show everyone who’s boss.
The conservative press has framed the story in a variety of ways, casting the story both as matter of outright federal seizure of private land and as an absurd environmental crusade to save a tortoise from extinction.
The reality looks to be a little murkier, however, as is often the case when dealing with land ownership in the American West. Back in September, the Las Vegas Sun reported on the Bundy family and noted that troubles began 20 years ago when the family’s patriarch unilaterally determined that he would no longer pay the Bureau of Land Management use fees that have long been required to graze on federal lands. The exact legal and historical details of the Bundy family’s case will emerge slowly over time, but even if the family is completely in the wrong legally (which it probably is), it’s safe to say that taxpayer dollars might be better spent on things other than a shock and awe campaign waged against a tiny ranch in the middle of a Nevada desert. Nonetheless, this is just the latest dispute in a long history of ranchers jockeying with the Federal government over land use permits and land use regulations.

Bundy Ranch Update: Radio Interview With Sheriff Mack: Exclusive: Sources Inside The BLM and Las Vegas Metro Say Feds Are Planning A Raid On Bundy Home

Bunkerville, NEVADA, April 14, 2014– As reported yesterday, hundreds of federal agents are still at the Bundy Ranch and the area continues its status as a no-fly zone. Despite major media reports that the Nevada Bureau of Land Management is retreating, the remaining activity that still surrounds the ranch illustrates a different scenario.
Not only is the BLM not actually backing off of Cliven Bundy, Sheriff Richard Mack of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association has revealed stunning information: on Ben Swann’s radio program, Mack said that he has received intelligence from multiple, credible sources inside the BLM and the Las Vegas Metro that there is “no question” that the federal government is planning a raid on the Bundy home and the homes of their children who live on the property.
According to Mack, the so-called retreat was nothing more than theatrics. “It was a ploy to get people to back off, to get people out of the way. They weren’t expecting us to get this amount of people here. They were surprised by the numbers and so they wanted a way to get us out of here. This was a ploy to get us out of here and then they’re going after the Bundys.”  Mack said that when he was at the Bundy ranch on Saturday there were an estimated 600 to 800 protesters present when federal agents were releasing the cattle.

“If they do that kind of raid, I don’t believe there’s any way that could happen without bloodshed,” Mack told Swann.
Mack spoke about the tactic that protesters could use by putting women at the front of the line facing the federal agents to make them think carefully before opening fire.

“I would’ve gone next. I would’ve been the next one to be killed. I’m not afraid to die here. I’m willing to die here,” said Mack.

Roy Pottter: The Real Story, Bundy Ranch Breakdown: ALERT Sheriff Gillespie Seeks Slaughter



"I am putting this up WAY out of chronological order because of its importance. LVPD Sheriff Gillespie said that the BLM would pull out and release the cattle back to Mr. Bundy within an hour of his (Gillespie's) speech to the crowd. It did not happen as he promised. Worse, an MRAD and a LVPD SWAT team were only one exit away. Why? After the discovery of the MRAP and the SWAT Team, Gillespie claimed they were to keep the peace. But, if the cattle were released according to the promise of Gillespie, no need to "keep the peace" would have existed. Therefore, Brand and I conclude that a more sinister and deadly trap was being set to end the lives of many people, especially BLM officers, and to use the massacre as an excuse to implement far more stringent and tyrannical controls over the American People. Gillespie sits on the board of the despicable Southern Poverty Law Center and the DHS. This was a highly sophisticated manipulation to kill as many as possible and blame it on the liberty/conservative movement."

Bad Moon Rising in Nevada at the Bundy Ranch


"The assault upon the American experiment may have already gone too far to be resolved by peaceful means. Our nation's Founders pointed muskets and placed improvised explosive ordnance in defense of their God-given Liberty. Harsh actions to even consider: They killed people--sometimes coating supporters of the enemy in tar and feathers and setting them afire.

Were they murderers? No they were not. It is right and just for a free people to wage just war against any and all who would strip them of their God-given Liberty, and to destroy that enemy whether in uniform or in civilian attire.

Our nation's Founders understood this. Horrible to consider that the time may soon come where American Patriots may once again arrive at a point in history where they will have no choice but to fight for to defend their God-given Liberty.

Patrick Henry is famous for his words, 'Give me Liberty or give me death!'

I will not go into what exactly we did or planned tactically at the Bundy Ranch or plans we may or may not have if the Federal government returns to the ranch, but I will tell you that we will stand with the Bundy family and defend them under Constitutional Authority.

Are there any Americans today who would put their lives, and treasure on the line for their Liberty? Honestly, I think not enough at this time, and we had better work fast to educate people because IMO time is running very short. Our enemy is here and he's/she's occupying every party of our government like it or not.

Very shortly after arriving at the Bundy Ranch it was brought to my attention that Harry Reids son had interest in the area and I mentioned it in some of my previous posts, and you are all now hearing various reports that point to him and his daddy as possible reasons of why what is happening is happening there presently, but IMO there is much more going on than just the land grab, and I will go into that in a moment.

First I want you to understand exactly what we are talking about, We are talking about desert land--land that the average person when driving through with their air conditioning blowing full blast would not stop at unless forced to. Over 120 years ago however Mr. Bundy's family not only decided to stop in this area but when they pulled into the area via wagon train decided to work the land and become beef producers which is what the newer generation of Bundy's still do today, NOTE: for those of you who may be unaware this land is not owned by the federal government but rather the State of Nevada, and Mr. Bundy HAS offered to pay grazing fees to but they declined payment.

I have said all along that Obama is most likely going make some kind of move and create problems before the midterms because he's aware that if Conservatives take both houses he will stand a very good chance of being not only impeached, but he could (and should) face criminal charges including but not limited to treason..etc.
If I am correct in my assessment the next step in their plans will be to try to spread us Patriots thin using MANY fronts and we need to keep this in mind as we move forward. What I mean by this is watch out for several issues to start around the same time in different areas of the country in an effort to not allow all of us to converge on one certain area.

If we stay focused on DC however then their plans will fail if this indeed becomes the case, and we need to act against an all out tyrannical government.
 
It is not illegal for Americans to prepare for war in the event that a tyrannical government attacks us or tries to take over our country, and that is exactly what we plan to do." (PaineAviation)

GJWHG: COP TALKS TO ARMED OPEN CARRY ADVOCATES: Says He Feels Safer With Them Around

Best Cop Interaction Ever On An Open Carry Walk! -Come And Take It Austin Tx 

 

By GJWHG
As we’ve noted in previous reports, sometimes things can spin out of control when open carry activists and police officers meet. That was certainly not the case in Austin, Texas, when an officer responded to a call about “suspicious” men openly carrying rifles.
In a video posted on YouTube in January by the activist group Come and Take It Texas, an officer is seen approaching the armed men in a non-aggressive fashion.
“Just checking you guys out,” he says in the video. “I already know the law.”
The officer, which the group identifies as Mark Dale with the Austin Police Department, even jokes with one of the men about his holstered squash. The man said he was openly carrying the squash as a joke because he’s unable to openly carry a pistol in Texas.

DEAR PRESIDENT OBAMA. A must read letter from a triple amputee and Purple Heart recipient

Dear President Obama,
My name is Brian Kolfage, I’m a triple amputee and retired Air Force veteran who was severely wounded on September 11, 2004 in Iraq.

I nearly died in a war that most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have no control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life.  I’ve seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today.

Mr. Obama, even though we have extreme opposite views, we have one thing in common, we both attended school in Hawaii. However, that’s where the similarities end.  You see, as you attended your exclusive, private school, I would ride my bike to Kaimuki High School in one of the roughest areas in Hawaii.
 Every morning I would ride past Punahou, the exclusive private school you attended and I would notice all of the Bentleys, Maserati's, and fancy foreign cars that all the kids were dropped off in; wow it must have been extremely rough in Hawaii living that life, right? I could only imagine what it was like to have that kind of money. Fortunately for you, not many people are aware of the school that you and the upper class citizens of Hawaii attended. 
The tuition to attend your exclusive, private school was more than it cost me to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Arizona. You talk a big game when it comes to financial inequality, yet I’m quite sure you have no idea what it’s truly like to have to sacrifice. You were one of the elitist children in Hawaii.
Watch video here

FAX BLAST SPECIAL: Impeach Obama NOW!

 
After High School, we each chose very different paths. You were able to attend America’s finest Ivy League schools, while I pursued a career in the military, in hopes of earning a degree. What we have in life as children usually helps to set the tone for how we acheive success later in life. I worked to get where I am today, while it was HANDED TO YOU….Mr. Inequality.

I volunteered to go to Iraq on both of my deployments, and the second time I begged to go even after I wasn’t selected.  During that second deployment, I was ultimately placed on the team where I would lose both legs and my dominant arm.  Even though many Americans were against the war in Iraq, I’ve never asked myself if it was worth it after losing 3 of my limbs.

I am frequently reminded of the many young Iraqi children who would beg me for water, food, and toys while I was stationed in Iraq.  Children, who in all aspects made the poorest of poor American children look rich. You have no idea what it really means to be poor. It’s laughable that you, who would have no idea what it means to be poor would so frequently play the inequality card.

While I was in Iraq, our mission was to liberate the Iraqi citizens from a tyrant and that’s what we did. Never forget, it was your people who sent us there, like the Clintons, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi & Carl Levin.  However, since the day you busted onto the scene you’ve been talking about ending the war and pulling the troops out, not understanding the blood sweat and tears that so many Americans and Iraqi’s invested.  And with complete disregard for every life sacrificed, every limb lost, and every broken family, you bailed on our mission to pursue an agenda that was completely centered on your re-election in 2012. If you didn’t bail on Iraq you were worried that you may not get re-elected and that’s a fact. Just before elections on Oct 11, 2012 you said “Al Qaeda is on the run and Osama bin Laden is dead.”  Look at Iraq now, they are in shambles and the Al Qaeda flag is flying freely.  Clearly, you’re unfit for duty as a Commander in Chief. You put your own agenda ahead of America’s agenda, and now you have single handedly ruined and destroyed nearly everything we gained in Iraq. It clearly means nothing to you, because the only thing that you’ve personally invested in that country was a promise to bail on them. However, people like me gave limbs, friends have died, and we’ve watched families destroyed by war’s aftermath.

I’m not placing blame on you for the war, I’m placing blame on you for destroying what we’ve worked so hard to build. You’re not a leader, you’re a community organizer. A leader would have stood up regardless of the situation and put America’s agenda first and that is ensuring a secure Iraq even after 10 years of war. But, you placed Barack first, just as Robert Gates confirmed in his new book. I can’t help but think of those poor kids who I gave water and toys to 11 years ago. They’re probably 15 or 16 years old now, and I can only imagine what it’s like for them to have their nation being torn apart yet again; all because of your poor leadership qualities. 
Regardless of why we went to Iraq, its water under the bridge. We went there, we waged war, and we not only owed it to our KIA’s but we owed it to the citizens of Iraq. We invaded their country and turned it upside down, and you bailed on them. You bailed on our soldiers and you’ve wasted every death and every limb, it’s all for nothing.  And to make matters worse you blame others for your failures

You’re just another elitist rich thug who’s pretended to live the rough life growing up in the inner-city. You’re only worried about your own agenda and furthering your party instead of taking care of Americans.  Your inability to be a leader at some of the most critical points has caused both of our wars to fail. You’ve been a joke to most of our veteran community and we have no faith in your ability to lead.

Senior Airman Ret Brian Kolfage USAF
“The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely to be the one who dropped it.”
— Lou Holtz



 http://www.briankolfage.com/

Brian Kolfage endured a life-changing event that would have sent someone of lesser spirit into a downward spiral. But for this former SF Airman turned Architect life is about looking forward to what you can do, not what you cannot.
 
Then Senior Airman Kolfage was on his second deployment for Operation IRAQI FREEDOM in 2004. On September 11, 2004 after working a night shift at Balad Air Base, Iraq, he awoke in the afternoon, left his tent to get some water and walked no more than 25 feet when the airbase came under a rocket attack. It would be the last time he would walk on the legs he was born with. A 107mm rocket shell exploded about three feet from Airman Kolfage. He was thrown several feet in the air and landed against a wall of sandbags, still conscious, and began calling for help.
Airman Kolfage’s best friend was thrown from his bed during the attack. He heard the screams and rushed outside to find his friend bloody, mangled, and clinging to life. The Airman and a medic rushed to help Airman Kolfage, who was struggling to breathe with only one lung after the other had collapsed. Brian’s friend desperately tried to divert his attention from the seriousness of his injuries, but calmly, Airman Kolfage assured him that he already knew the extent of his wounds, and that he just wanted to go home to his family.
 
Despite suffering multiple amputations and the looming possibility of death, Airman Kolfage still maintained incredible strength and courage throughout his recovery. The fact that no one with his level of amputation has ever been able to walk independently didn’t discourage him. With undiminished spirit, he still saw opportunities and worked with feverish determination through his physical therapy program, gaining strength and balance every day.
 
Incredibly, Brian walked out of Walter Reed 11 months after being injured; this is unheard of. Till this day he is still the most severely wounded Airman to survive any war. After leaving the hospital he immediately continued his service to the Air Force, and was assigned to Davis Monthan AFB 355 SFS as the base security manager. Brian furthered his service to the community by proudly accepting to be on Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford’s Veterans Advisory Committee. He provided crucial inside information to help the congresswoman make vital decisions which helped veterans nationally. He was invited by the Congresswoman to be her special guest at the 2012 Presidential State of The Union Address when she resigned.
 
Today, Brian is about to graduate from the University of Arizona’s School of Architecture, where he has risen among the ranks to the top of his class with an overall 3.5 GPA. He’s currently applying to Ivy League graduate schools for the next semester. He has never let the daunting tasks of drawing without his dominate right hand affect his ability to perform. With persistence and determination he has beat all the odds stacked against him and recently was awarded one of the most prestigious military scholarship’s, the Pat Tillman Scholar award. Brian continues to embrace a positive attitude as he makes great strides, both literally and figuratively, in learning how to walk with his prosthetic s. He and his wife continues to make trips back to Walter Reed Army Medical Center to visit with newly wounded vets, his insight and ability to connect with the veterans gives them new hope for their future

FreedomOutpost: Constitutional Sheriffs Are Liberty’s Brightest Light

 If you are a lover of liberty in America today, you probably have gotten used to hearing and seeing “bad news.” 
I’m sure that you would agree that we live in an age of lawlessness and corruption. We have a central government that has become everything that our Founders feared. Indeed, Washington, D.C. has become a black hole of consolidated power that is bent on enslaving, impoverishing and destroying the very people it is duty bound, before the Almighty, to protect. 
Rather than defend our God-given rights, our government has become the abuser of those rights. 
 


Rather than upholding law, government uses the “color of law” to break the law. 
Our state and local governments, which are duty bound to interpose on our behalf and protect us from this lawbreaking, far too often assume the role of the tyrant’s local commissar. They inflict further evil upon us by trading our liberties and our property for grants and perks that are funded by our tax monies in the first place. In this way, the people are double victims. 
But there is some good news, and I would like to share it with you.
I recently attended a meeting of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. These sheriffs and peace officers might just be the brightest light that shines today for the cause of liberty and justice. 

Headed by former Sheriff Richard Mack, these officers are dedicated to the protection of the God-given liberties of the people they represent. They are a serious band of brothers, who recognize that they have taken an oath before God and that oath does not obligate them to obey courts or agencies that operate outside of the Constitution. Rather, they are committed to following the Constitution which is the Supreme Law of the Land. 
Moreover, they recognize that the rights they are duty bound to defend have a divine origin. They are part of God’s created order and are fixed and unchanging. They are not subject to the will and the whims of courts and bureaucrats. 
On January 24, 2014, the CSPOA published a resolution which declared, among other things, that “no agency established by the U.S. Congress can develop its own policies or regulations which supersede the Bill of Rights or the U.S. Constitution, nor does the executive branch have the power to make law, overturn law, or set aside law.”
The resolution also declares that certain abuses of the citizenry will not be tolerated including “arrest of citizens or seizure of persons or property without first notifying and obtaining the express consent of the local sheriff.” 

This resolution deserves the support of all lovers of liberty. These sheriffs and peace officers, having recognized their duty under God and the Constitution, are bravely stepping forward to do that duty and to defend your rights. They are deserving of your commendation and your support. I am asking you to give them your prayers, your encouragement and your financial support. 
You can do this by visiting their website at http://www.cspoa.org. 
You should also ask your local sheriff to join this effort. 
Learn more about your Constitution with Michael Anthony Peroutka and his “Institute on the Constitution”.

But there is some good news, and I would like to share it with you.
I recently attended a meeting of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. These sheriffs and peace officers might just be the brightest light that shines today for the cause of liberty and justice.
Headed by former Sheriff Richard Mack, these officers are dedicated to the protection of the God-given liberties of the people they represent. They are a serious band of brothers, who recognize that they have taken an oath before God and that oath does not obligate them to obey courts or agencies that operate outside of the Constitution. Rather, they are committed to following the Constitution which is the Supreme Law of the Land.
Moreover, they recognize that the rights they are duty bound to defend have a divine origin. They are part of God's created order and are fixed and unchanging. They are not subject to the will and the whims of courts and bureaucrats.
On January 24, 2014, the CSPOA published a resolution which declared, among other things, that "no agency established by the U.S. Congress can develop its own policies or regulations which supersede the Bill of Rights or the U.S. Constitution, nor does the executive branch have the power to make law, overturn law, or set aside law."
The resolution also declares that certain abuses of the citizenry will not be tolerated including "arrest of citizens or seizure of persons or property without first notifying and obtaining the express consent of the local sheriff."
This resolution deserves the support of all lovers of liberty. These sheriffs and peace officers, having recognized their duty under God and the Constitution, are bravely stepping forward to do that duty and to defend your rights. They are deserving of your commendation and your support. I am asking you to give them your prayers, your encouragement and your financial support.
You can do this by visiting their website at http://www.cspoa.org.
You should also ask your local sheriff to join this effort.

MAINE CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION SCORES LOW ON THE 2013 LIBERTY INDEX



The Maine congressional delegation scored low on the 2013 Liberty Index compiled by a panel of libertarian scholars headed by Dr. Clifford F. Thies, Elden R. Lindsey Chair of Free Enterprise and Professor of Economics and Finance at Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA. The Index was released Monday by the national Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC), of which Thies is former National Chair.

House and Senate members were rated on a scale of zero to 100 on a series of 2013 roll call votes involving economic liberty issues and rate on the same scale on a series of roll call votes on personal liberty issues. The average of the two scores produced the Liberty Index.
“I was disturbed when I read the scores and learned how out of touch our Maine congressional delegation is with the will of the American people when it comes to free enterprise, smaller government, lower taxes and personal liberty without government intrusions. And it crossed party lines with disappointing scores whether Republican, Democrat or independent,” said Maine RLC State Chair Vic Berardelli.
Republican Senator Susan Collins scored 40 on economic liberty and 50 on personal liberty for a Liberty Index of 45. The average Senate Republican scores were 86 and 81 for an average Liberty Index of 83 for Senate Republicans.
Independent Senator Angus King scored 5 on economic liberty and 11 on personal liberty for a Liberty Index of 8, giving him one of the lowest scores in the Senate but placing him close to the average Senate Democrat scores of 6 and 14 for an average Liberty index of 10 for Senate Democrats.
The highest scores in the Senate, all Republicans, were Mike Crapo and Jim Risch, both of Idaho and scoring 100; Mike Lee of Utah 98; Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Jerry Moran of Kansas, all at 95. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky scored 90.
The lowest scores in the Senate, all Democrats, were Barbara Boxer of California, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and the late-Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey, all scoring zero. Eight others scored 3. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada had a Liberty Index of 5.
Rep. Chellie Pingree, Democrat of Maine’s 1st District, scored zero on economic liberty and 75 on personal liberty for a Liberty Index of 38.
Rep. Mike Michaud, Democrat of Maine’s 2nd District scored 10 on economic liberty and 68 on personal liberty for a Liberty Index of 39.
For comparison, the average House Democrat scored 11 on economic liberty and 55 on personal liberty for an average Democrat Liberty Index of 33. The average House Republican scored 90 on economic liberty and 50 on personal liberty for an average GOP Liberty Index of 70.
The highest House scorers, all Republicans, were Mark Sanford of South Carolina 100; Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina, Tom McClintock and Dana Rohrabacher, both of California, and Jim Huelskamp of Kansas, all at 95. House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio was not scored because he did not cast enough votes. House Republican Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia had a Liberty Index of 61 based on average a 95 on economic liberty but only 26 on personal liberty.
The lowest House scorers, all Democrats, were Ed Markey of Massachusetts ZERO and five Democrats all at 18. House Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi of California scored 20.
“This year, on the economics side, the index reflects votes on “hot issues” such as Health Care Overhaul, the Ryan budget, carbon taxes, the Keystone pipeline, hydraulic fracturing, TANF (welfare) work rules and SNAP (food stamp) eligibility. Some curious votes are also included, among these are price supports for Christmas Trees, declaring stones to be agricultural commodities (and, thus, eligible for price supports), and funding the Navy’s grossly-overpriced Z-class destroyer,” explained Dr. Thies.
Thies explained further, “On the personal liberties side, there was some difficulty assembling sets of roll call votes that reflect the breadth of libertarian concerns. The House roll calls over-sample the tension between personal liberty and national security (as neo-conservatives see things). The Senate roll calls over-sample Second Amendment issues. This is a not unusual problem in the history of the Liberty Index. There simply are years when one or the other chamber generates disproportionate numbers of personal liberties votes in certain areas. All that can be said is that, hopefully, over time, the vagaries of this component of the index are evened-out.”
Dr. Thies has published the Liberty Index annually for nearly 20 years, except for 2011 and 2012 while he served as President of the Faculty Senate at Shenandoah University.

Judicial Watch: Amnesty Update Panel

Published on Dec 10, 2013


Congressman Steve King (IA-04), U.S. House of Representatives; Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies; and Rosemary Jenks, Director of Government Relations for NumbersUSA discuss the status of amnesty efforts in Congress, as well as President Obama's controversial decisions to suspend deportation for entire categories of illegal aliens.

The panel was moderated by Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

 

***News Flash*** Republicans Plotting Amnesty Betrayal Lead By Speaker of the House John Boehner

Alert: Boehner Plotting Amnesty Betrayal.  
 



    


We'll cut to the chase. Credible conservative insiders are sounding the alarm and making a compelling case that Speaker of the House John Boehner is working behind the scenes to hand Amnesty to Barack Obama on a silver platter.

       One goes so far as to clearly imply that once the filing deadlines have passed for potential conservative challengers to "primary" entrenched Republicans, Boehner will move full-speed-ahead with legislation to grant Amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

       But there's good news. Sunlight is still the great disinfectant and patriotic Americans like you can nip this plot in the bud. We can expose this secret plot to the light of day, but to make that happen, our self-proclaimed political leaders must hear from you right here and right now.

Boehner Has Just Hired A "Professional Amnesty Advocate" To Spearhead Efforts To Pass Amnesty.

       For months, conservatives let out collective sighs of relief because John Boehner had repeatedly stated, without equivocation, that the Senate's "Gang of Eight" Amnesty bill was dead on arrival in the House.

       Back in November, The Hill reported: "For months, the Speaker has vowed that the House would neither take up the Senate Gang of Eight bill nor consider a similar 'comprehensive' piece of immigration legislation."

       And Boehner even stated: "The idea that we're going to take up a 1,300-page bill that no one had ever read, which is what the Senate did, is not going to happen in the House. And frankly, I'll make clear we have no intention of ever going to conference on the Senate bill."

       Then last week, Boehner shocked Washington insiders by hiring Rebecca Tallent - a woman who Mark Krikorian, head of the Center for Immigration Studies, called a "professional amnesty advocate" - to spearhead "immigration reform" efforts in the House of Representatives... And the radical left jumped for joy.

       According to the Washington Times: "Immigrant rights [Amnesty] advocates cheered the move as a sign of Mr. Boehner's dedication to action."

       But Tallent is more than just a "professional amnesty advocate." Tallent is one of the architects of the failed Kennedy-McCain Amnesty push that patriotic Americans like you stopped years ago.

       Daniel Horowitz with RedState.com put it this way: "Let this seep in for a moment. The most important immigration policy staffer on the Republican side not only shares the views of the opposition, but actually worked to craft the very legislation they seek to pass as Obama's crowning achievement."

       Make no mistake, the fix is in and we can only "unfix" this betrayal by letting our so-called political leaders know, in no uncertain terms, that you are wise to this planned betrayal. Mark our words, when they know that you're wise to what they're planning to do... THEY WILL BACK DOWN.

What A Tangled Web We Weave, When First We Practice To Deceive.

       But hints of deception are not simply based on Boehner's decision to hire an "Amnesty-Top-Gun" to spearhead "immigration reform" efforts in the House of Representatives.

       Consider the following report from Breitbart.com:

       "A new report from the Texas-based Quorum Report, published by longtime Texas journalist Harvey Kronberg, says that House Speaker John Boehner plans to push amnesty legislation through the House, after the primary filing deadline for candidates. The move would prevent Tea Party from challenging GOP lawmakers who support amnesty in 2014."

       "Scott Braddock [with the Quorum Report] reported on Tuesday that 'in recent weeks, various Texas business interests have told Quorum Report that Boehner has been telling them that he will start holding immigration votes not long after the filing deadline has passed.'

       "Braddock noted that those business community sources spoke with him 'on condition of anonymity because their conversations were held behind closed doors and they added it wasn't made clear to them just how confidential the information was meant to be.'"

       Erick Erickson with RedState.com chimed in: "Here's what is going to happen. Boehner will wait until 2014, after qualifying for all the serious challenges to incumbents is over. Then he'll get all these Republicans talking out of both sides of their mouths and the Democrats together for a bipartisan immigration reform push. The threat of primary challenges well passed, they'll get their amnesty deal done. ... Republicans are so convinced you will turn out and vote for them in 2014 to spite Obama, they are perfectly happy to screw you over in this fight knowing how cheap a date the conservative movement has become."

       Can it be true? Was John Boehner planning to lock arms with Barack Obama on Amnesty all along to appease big dollar special interests? Did he only pretend to stall Amnesty to prevent pesky Tea Party candidates from challenging closeted pro-Amnesty Republican incumbents?

       We'll let you, the reader, make your own conclusions. But one thing is certain: A behind-closed-doors betrayal is in the works and we're not about to let Boehner and Company pull the wool over your eyes. The fix may be in but the righteous outrage of patriotic Americans can stop it.
