The democrats have so many people brainwashed it is hard to fight it, they sure know how to take over the country that is what healthcare is for to finish the takeover, how do we fight it.  we are so outnumbered.  I do not have a republican living any where around me, I have no one to even invite over to lunch so I am feeling pretty low about the future of are country.

Gibson County Patriots,

 

   On September 29th a coalition of 63 Tennessee Tea Party groups called “Coalition for a Constitutional Senate” met in Cookeville Tennessee. The purpose was to vet the 4 Republican candidates who have announced their intention to challenge Lamar Alexander in the 2014 Republican primary election and come to consensus on one candidate to support.

 

The only chance of beating Lamar Alexander is for the Tea Party state wide to unify their support behind one primary candidate. The candidate selected by the coalition is State Representative Joe Carr.

 

Regardless of how you vote in the general election I hope you’ll join this effort to remove Lamar Alexander as a general election choice by supporting Joe Carr for Senator in the Republican primary election.

 

If you have any doubt about the need to beat Lamar Alexander please see his voting record attached. Lamar Alexander’s voting record is the most powerful tool we have. Please spread it as far and wide as you can.

Tea Party Tennessee

I thought we joined the Tennessee Tea Party in May, but when I scrolled through the list of members, I didn''t see my name - Karin.

I know we belong to our local Tea Party in Sumner County.

How do we joint the Tea Party of Tennessee?  I don't see a JOIN button?

Hello Tea Party of Tennessee~

I just joined.

Do you have meetings?  We used to belong to the Tea Party in Sacramento, CA where they were very active at the State Capital holding Tea Party Rallys with live radio and TV coverage. 

Michelle Bachman, among others spoke at these events.

Do you have anything planned prior to the Nov election?

We'd like to get involved.

ALERT ALERT

 Judge Orders Mueller To Prove  Russia Meddled In Election 

Judge Dabney L. Friedrich

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections.

According to the judge’s request for clarification, the Justice Department has argued that it doesn’t have to show that Concord had a legal duty to report its expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Rather, the allegation is that the company knowingly engaged in deceptive acts that precluded the FEC, or the Justice Department, from ascertaining whether they had broken the law. -Bloomberg

On Monday, Friedrich raised questions over whether the special counsel’s office could prove a key element of their case – saying that it was “hard to see” how allegations of Russian influence were intended to interfere with US government operations vs. simply “confusing voters,” reports law.com.

During a 90-minute hearing, Friedrich questioned prosecutor Jonathan Kravis about how the government would be able to show the Russian defendants were aware of the Justice Department and FEC’s functions and then deliberately sought to skirt them.

“You still have to show knowledge of the agencies and what they do. How do you do that?” Friedrich asked.

Kravis, a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, argued that the government needed only to show that Concord Management and the other defendants were generally aware that the U.S. government “regulates and monitors” foreign participation in American politics. That awareness, Kravis said, could be inferred from the Russians’ alleged creation of fake social media accounts that appeared to be run by U.S. citizens and “computer infrastructure” intended to mask the Russian origin of the influence operation.

“That is deception that is directed at a higher level,” Kravis said. Kravis appeared in court with Michael Dreeben, a top Justice Department appellate lawyer on detail to the special counsel’s office. -law.com

Concord pleaded not guilty in May. Their attorney, Eric Dubelier – a partner at Reed Smith, has described the election meddling charges as “make believe,” arguing on Monday that Mueller’s indictment against Concord “doesn’t charge a crime.”

“There is no statute of interfering with an election. There just isn’t,” said Dubelier, who added that Mueller’s office alleged a “made-up crime to fit the facts they have.”

Dubelier added that the case against Concord Management is the first in US history “where anyone has ever been charged with defrauding the Justice Department” through their failure to register under FARA.
