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.



Below you’ll find a simple slide show of photos from the Jomeokee Constitution Day Tea Party event.

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

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.

~~~~~ End of Update ~~~~~

I just received this info on Monday August 27, 2012. We need to alert our delegates in Tampa and STOP the adoption of these new RULES!

Here’s More from FreedomWorks!

 The move came at the encouragement of Mitt Romney supporters on the committee, including Romney’s top lawyer Ben Ginsberg, who stressed that it would grant “flexibility” to Romney and the committee to adapt to changing political environments. The rule allows the RNC to amend the party’s rules without a vote by the full Republican National Convention. And it offers the Republican Establishment a new tool to keep at bay Tea Party initiatives that threaten to embarrass or contradict party leadership and stray from a planned message.” (emphasis added)



 And here’s a link you can Tweet or whatever via Conservative Outpost. It lists the emails of the Rules committee too. Find your states members.




And yet another link for info.



“Here is a list of delegates serving on the Rules Committee listed alphabetically by state.  Please take a moment to find the delegates from your state to urge them sign onto and Vote FOR the Minority Report from the Rules Committee to stop the proposed change. The vote is expected to take place Tuesday.  Please only contact delegates from your state.



Michelle Malkin’s take on this issue.

Full MM Link

“This past Friday, the RNC’s Convention Rules Committee voted – after several contentous votes – to change the party’s rules to allow future presidential candidates to have veto power over who can be delegates from any state – in other words, take power away from the grassroots and their ability to elect fellow conservatives as delegates.

This represents a brazen move by several Washington Beltway consultants and party insiders to diminish the power and influence of conservatives over the party.”


The following is the text of a letter from Morton Blackwell. He is concerned about rule changes at the Republican National Convention:


Dear Fellow Delegate,


On Tuesday of this week, as Republican National Convention delegates, you and I will be voting on rules changes that could fundamentally change our Republican Party — and not for the better.


Over the years, I’ve served on the Louisiana and Virginia GOP Rules Committees. I currently serve on both the Republican National Committee’s Standing Committee on Rules and on the National Convention’s Committee on Rules and Order of Business.


I was Barry Goldwater’s youngest elected delegate in 1964, I was honored to serve on President Ronald Reagan’s White House Staff from 1981-1984, and I have attended every Republican National Convention Rules Committee meeting since 1972. My wife and I have contributed major donations to the Romney-Ryan campaign.


These rule changes are the most awful I’ve ever seen come before any National Convention.


I’m writing you today to urge you to join the growing effort to stop the worst-ever changes in this Rules Committee’s Report and to vote in favor of amendments to Rules 12 and 15. The Minority Reports will restore important rights and protections which state parties and grassroots Republicans would lose under the Rules Committee Report as written.


These amendments to Rules 12 and 15 are contained in Minority Reports supported by at least 25% of the members of this convention’s Committee on Rules and Order of Business.


It’s rare for Minority Reports to come before our national convention, but the issues involved here are vital to the future of our party.


I must tell you there is tremendous arm-twisting now to peel signers off of the Minority Reports.


Finally, whether on Minority Reports or on voting down the Rules, it will require at least six states’ delegations to insist upon a roll call vote.


I will not pretend that the deck is not stacked against us.


But many state leaders, liberty-minded activists, and grass-roots conservatives are up-in-arms as word of this power grab spreads.


Our convention will make this important decision Tuesday as some of our first work. Many folks skip these procedural sessions thinking nothing of importance occurs.


This year, that is far from the truth.


If the Rules Committee Report were to pass without adoption of the Minority Reports, it would amount to a power grab by Washington, D.C. party insiders and consultants designed to silence the voice of state party activists and Republican grassroots by:


*** Handing national party officials the power to change national party rules adopted by state and grassroots leaders at the Republican National Convention. For generations, the prohibition of manipulated changes in the national Rules of the Republican Party between national conventions has served as one of the crown jewels of our party. It’s a power grab which opens the door to many future power grabs.


*** Stripping state parties in all states with binding primaries of the power of choosing who will represent their states as national delegates and alternate delegates.


This outrageous change would empower presidential campaigns to disapprove and remove delegates and alternate delegates selected by rules adopted by state Republican parties. Rather than grassroots activists who won delegate and alternate delegate slots by following state party rules, a large majority of positions would be handed to top donors of the winning campaign.


*** Gutting the great and successful reform adopted in the current election cycle to stop the dangerous trend to front-load the selection of national convention delegates. Our party would move again toward a national primary which would deny grassroots Republicans the opportunity to vet presidential candidates in a nomination contest of reasonable length. This reform must not be abandoned.


Like most of us delegates to this convention, I’ve spent years gladly battling in the trenches for our Republican Party.


And as the President of the Leadership Institute — which specializes in training thousands of conservative activists, students, and leaders to fight for our country’s future — I can’t tell you how disheartened I am to see these rules changes even considered.


These rule changes would give good folks like you less of a say over our Republican Party in favor of insiders and consultants in Washington, D.C.


At a time when Tea Party activists have re-invigorated our Republican Party — leading to massive gains in the U.S. House, the Senate, and many state legislatures in the 2010 elections — why would we want to discourage activism?


Thanks to their efforts, you and I have a new generation of exciting conservative leaders in Washington, D.C., who — in many instances — were elected despite the opposition of establishment-backed opponents.


Certainly this is not to say GOP leaders are always wrong.


But history shows that our Republican Party grows when we welcome newly active participants and treat them fairly.


Our Republican Party is strongest when we listen to the wishes of grassroots conservatives.


Instead of strengthening our party, these insider power grabs will weaken it.


For these reasons, I urge you to join the growing effort to adopt the Minority Reports when the Rules Committee Report comes up for consideration by the convention.



Morton Blackwell

National Committeeman, Virginia


P.S. Some of the most important work of the convention will take place on Tuesday where you and I will be voting on rules that could fundamentally change our Republican Party for the worse.


New rules will be voted on that have been designed to silence state Republican parties and Republican grassroots in favor of party insiders and Washington, D.C.-based consultants.


The vote will take place at Tuesday’s convention session, and I’m counting on you join the growing effort to defeat these new rules.


Please vote to adopt the Minority Reports on Rules and urge your delegation to call for a roll call vote on all Rules-related votes.

I realize that every election America has ever held has been important. There are always relevant issues, and policies that have needed to be instituted, altered or done away with altogether, critical course corrections for the nation’s good or in some cases, survival.

Of all the elections I can remember observing and participating in over the past seven and a half decades, I speak in complete honesty when I say that the 2012 election is the most important and represents the most diverse and serious ramifications and consequences of them all.

In my mind the 2012 election goes far beyond mere political parties, left vs. right and even the obvious critical issues facing the nation. This election is about ideology, about whether America will get back on the horse she was bucked off of or stay on the ground and crawl toward being the impotent, pale and fainthearted, also ran, who lives a hand to mouth existence and doesn’t really matter very much in the neighborhood where the bullies live. That’s what this election is about.

I often marvel at the pundits in the media who proudly tout Obama’s dismal job creation record, jobs that exist at government expense, that in many cases have cost the taxpayer seven million dollars apiece. That’s what this election is about.

Our national debt is approaching sixteen trillion dollars and if Obama is elected will continue to grow until our credit card gets cancelled and our dollar becomes so devaluated that we lose our long held place as the accepted world trade currency and we have to buy currency from other nations to purchase oil and other imported goods.
That’s what this election is about.

Our military stands the chance of being underfunded, shrunk and weakened by a president who either doesn’t understand or doesn’t like them very much. That’s what this election about.

Under Obama the entitlement class has grown to alarming proportions and threatens to become the most powerful voting block in America, casting their vote for whoever promises them the most, growing so large in numbers that sensible fiscal policy will never again be possible until this nation goes through the inevitable anarchy and chaos that accompanies the end of the party when the money runs out. That’s what this election is about.

Eric Holder has proven to be inept, dishonest and partial in his administration of the law.

America deserves to have the law upheld and applied equally regardless of race or politics. That’s what this election is about.

In spite of having complete control of the White House, Congress and Senate his first two years in office, in spite of having a mandate and a license to do anything he wanted to fix the economy, in spite of being able to use presidential decree like a royal stamp, the best excuse for failure Obama can come up with is that it’s all Bush’s fault. He is not willing to face the American people and admit his impotence. That’s what this election is about.

President Obama has gone around the world apologizing for the greatness and uniqueness of America; he stood by and did nothing when the people of Iran were in the streets trying to rid themselves of a cruel and repressive dictatorship. Obama is perceived as weak by the leaders of the world; therefore making America and American interests abroad vulnerable because they believe our president doesn’t have the will or the know how to defend against them. That’s what this election is about.

The 2012 election is about what kind of nation we want to live in, a country with a strong, modern military, a nation which projects a don’t tread on me attitude and the ability to back it up, or an ill defended, weak and vulnerable place that cringes at it’s own shadow every time it hears a saber rattle.

Do we want to be energy independent by drilling, racking and taking Canada up on the vast amounts the pipeline would provide or do we want to remain dependent on terrorist supporting nations who can slow down our economy on a whim?

Do we want to tax and regulate more and more businesses out of America or create a business friendly climate to being back the ones we’ve already lost?

Do we want to destroy the very best health care system in the world and place another sixth of our economy under government control?

It’s about personal freedom, equal justice for all, fiscal stability, security, law and order,
letting the private sector grow, creating jobs and fueling the American dream as it always has.

That’s what this election is about.

Do I think that if Romney and Ryan win in November all will be peaches and cream? Far from it, but at least it’s a chance to stop the bleeding.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, and for our country.

God bless America

Charlie Daniels
