OK…. Ol’ SilenceDogood2010 has had a series of setbacks since last weekend. Time Warner Cable is my internet service provider and they have once again let me down. I’ve been OFFLINE more than I’ve been connected in the last 120 hours (5 days).

Thanks to my good pal Bart for the photos and to MajorDave for his video of the entire event.

And a HUGE “Thank You” goes out to the Stokes County Militia for their part in making this such a success! Click to enlarge the photo.

Now, since last weekend, we’ve lost an American Icon—- Andy Williams.  Silence grew up listening to Andy every Christmas and other times throughout the year. I feel the need to share one of MY favs by Mr. Williams and I think it’s an appropriate new TEA PARTY tune too.

 

 

 

Now for some of the speeches from the Jomeokee Constitution Day TEA Party Rally!

Lamar Smith

CONSERVATIVE LAWMAKERS TO

INVESTIGATE OBAMA’S ABUSE OF POWER

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives’ Judiciary Committee will begin its probe of alleged abuse of power by the Obama administration, according to the committee’s chairman, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX). Among the abuses addressed will be an accusation that President Barack Obama’s minions are “cooking the books” in order to achieve a so-called record number of deportations of illegal aliens.

 

Throughout his reelection campaign, President Obama has touted his administration’s “historic number of deportations.” But many believe the figures given to backup his assertion are fabricated. In fact, members of the Department of Homeland Security have been critical of Obama and his DHS appointees especially those in charge of border security and immigration enforcement.

 

“In a campaign season when Administration officials have made a habit of spinning their numbers to ignore their real record, it’s no surprise that they are doing the same to their immigration record.

 

It seems like President Obama is trying to trick the American people into thinking he is enforcing our immigration laws. But no amount of spin can cover up the facts. It’s bad enough that the President has neglected to enforce our immigration laws but it’s even worse that his Administration would distort statistics to deceive the American people,” stated Chairman Smith.

 

In fact, on August 23, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents filed a lawsuit in Texas, which argues that the Obama administration’s amnesty program commands ICE officers to violate federal law and their oaths to uphold and support federal law.

 

The agents also assert that the Administration’s directive violates the Administrative Procedure Act, unconstitutionally usurps and encroaches upon the legislative powers of Congress, and violates the obligation of the executive branch to faithfully execute the law.

 

Chairman Smith and Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security Chairman Robert Aderholt (R-AL) sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano requesting that the agency not retaliate against those ICE agents.

 

Lamar’s committee has obtained internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) documents, which show that “the Obama administration is cooking the books to achieve their so-called ‘record’ deportation numbers for illegal immigrants and that removals are actually significantly down – not up – from 2009.”

 

Lamar said in a statement that beginning in 2011, his committee discovered that Obama’s appointees at the Department of Homeland Security began to include numbers from the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP) in its year-end removal numbers. The ATEP is a joint effort between ICE and Customs and Border Protection that transfers illegal immigrants apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border to another point along the Southwest border for removal.

 

“But it is illegitimate to count illegal immigrants apprehended by the Border Patrol along the Southwest border as ICE removals,” said the statement.

 

The DHS internal documents also reveal a discrepancy between arrests and actual removals. Specifically, ICE has reported 221,656 arrests yet report 334,249 removals for 2012 so far – a discrepancy of nearly 112,000 removals. ATEP accounts for 72,030 removals within this discrepancy, but there are over 40,000 removals that remain unaccounted for.

 

“This is one hearing I don’t want to miss. I want Obama’s minions to explain how you arrest fewer illegal aliens than you deport in one year,” said former police detective and military intelligence officer Michael Snopes.

 

Chairman Smith has slammed the Obama administration for artificially enhancing their successes such as deportations of illegal aliens, many of whom committed criminal offenses while in the United States.

 

“Internal Department of Homeland Security documents obtained by the House Judiciary Committee reveal that President Obama and other administration officials have falsified their record to achieve their so-called historic deportation numbers. Administration officials claim that Immigration and Customs Enforcement has deported a record number of illegal immigrants but the facts show that they have fabricated their deportation statistics by illegitimately adding over 100,000 removals to their deportation figures for the past two years,” said the Texan.

Lamar maintains that since 2011 the Obama administration has included numbers from a Border Patrol program that returns illegal immigrants to Mexico right after they cross the Southwest border in their year-end deportation statistics.

Lamar flatly stated that it is “dishonest to count illegal immigrants apprehended by the Border Patrol along the border as ICE removals; these ‘removals’ from the Border Patrol program do not subject the illegal immigrant to any penalties or bars for returning to the U.S.”

 

He claims that a single illegal immigrant can show up at the border and be removed numerous times in a single year – and counted each time as a removal. When the numbers from this Border Patrol program are removed from this year’s deportation data, it shows that removals are actually down nearly 20% from 2009. Another 40,000 removals are also included in the final deportation count but it is unclear where these removals came from.

Watch the video.

Now, since we know we have a problem, the next step is to come up with a solution. I think my friend B.H. Goswick has done just that. He is an executive member, precinct vice chair, of his local GOP and he’s informed me that his Party Chairman has just approved that this petition be brought up at the September meeting. If it gets approved and passed by the executive committee, they will be sending copies to the state GOP and to the National Committee and more. This is GRASSROOTS, BOTTOM UP action my friends.

Below is the generic ‘Petition’ that I would suggest each and every County GOP Executive Committee should bring up and vote on during their next meeting. Feel free to copy and paste the text and modify it for your particular locale and state.

Petition to the Republican National Committee in Opposition of the Rules adopted at the 2012 Republican National Convention

Whereas, the 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees the people a right to petition the government, and the party, for a redress of grievances; and,

Whereas, members of the Republican National Committee and the United States Congress take an oath to support the Constitution; and,

Whereas, the United States Constitution provides a system of checks and balances that is designed to prevent the abuse of power by government, or party, and to preserve the power and freedom of the people; and,

Whereas, during the 2012 Republican National Convention held in Tampa, Florida the adoption of new rules to govern  the party were voted on by the delegates in attendance; and,

Whereas, the chairman, John Boehner, deemed the new rules accepted via voice vote despite the equal voicing of “Nay” and overwhelming calls for ‘Point of Order’ and a Roll Call vote; and,

`
Whereas, the PREAMBLE of the 2008 Republican Rules states;

“BE IT RESOLVED, That the Republican Party is the party of the open door. Ours is the party of liberty, the party of equality, of opportunity for all, and favoritism for none.”
and we as a party should strictly adhere to this statement; and,

Whereas, since the Republican Party has been recently given a lift by the efforts of grassroots such as the local TEA parties and  9-12 groups throughout the country; and,

Whereas, to quell the voices of  these grassroots groups by adopting rules that provide overwhelming power to the Republican National Committee is an act of tyranny; and,

Whereas, rules 12, 15(a),  15(b) and 16  grant unprecedented power to the committee; and,

Whereas, future Presidential candidates and campaigns will effectively inherit any expanded powers of the RNC rules unless those rules are removed; now, therefore, be it resolved:

 

That the(insert your local GOP name/XXX Republican Party of XXX County, Your state)hereby requests that the National Committee use these new rules in a ONE TIME ACTION to rescind the rules changes; and,

 

That the _______________ hereby requests the Republican National committee never again act in such a way to override or quell the voice of the people; and,

 

That the _______________ hereby requests that the rules committee and any changes to previous rules  be counted via a ROLL CALL votes by each and every convention delegate; and,

 

That a copy of this resolution with the original authorizing signature of the Clerk of the _______________ be sent to the Office of the Republican National Committee and to the Office of the State Republican Party and to the Office of the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and the Majority Leader of the United States Senate and that copies of the signed resolution be sent to each Republican member of the United States Senate and House of Representatives.
