Any up to getting the VRTLA recognized before the Hearing Committee of Congress? To address an issue that has suffered onto the People of the Commonwealth wrongful evictions and foreclosuers which, as yet, has not been recognizea as being done with criminal intent, or the sufferers bieng victims of crime?

Like you say Greg we lost the attorney general s and the governors office to a very close vote. We would have won the govenors race if it had not been for obozo paying a libertarian to run with no intention of winning but just taking votes away from Cuccinelli, the sad thing is that this man let himself be bribed by obozo.

The Hard part Is most people feel there vote does not or even Is not counted! I vote but have not convinced my wife to vote. We lost the Att. General office by what 800 votes? if 1,000 more people had voted we would have won!

Greg Swartz just said the reason why Republicans keep losing in the presidential vote and any other vote for that matter. It is because nobody gets out and votes. I bet that less than 10 percent of the population actually votes and with the democrats constantly cheating no wonder people are discouraged. My wife and I never miss a vote no matter what and this is the attitude republicans need to take that their vote does count but it will not unless they actually get off the damned sofa and vote.

To the Tea Party

My name is Greg Swartz. I am a simple Blue Collar Middle Class worker from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I have become politically active in the last few years prior to that I did not follow or even really care about what went on. I now read your post on face book and other media, I very concerned with the direction this country is going. I fully stand behind the “15 Core Beliefs” of The Tea Party. I do have a few thoughts that I hope will help advance The Tea Party if they are addressed properly.

The first thing that needs attention is getting people to vote. I think you will find a lot of people feel this way… “We The” middle class hard working but broke “people” feel we can do nothing to get our country back. The working class feel they can’t out vote nor out spend big business or the multitude living off the government. Then there is the Voter Fraud with dead people voting, there are more dead then alive so how can we out vote them? Miss counting, the Electoral Collage, bought votes etc. We don’t stand a chance so why bother to vote?

Then there is the general opinion that all the candidates are Liars and Crooks so what difference is it who gets the office? The special interest group with the most money will buy their votes any way! For 150 Years “We The People” have been loosing more each election to Politicians that were put in office by Big Money and promises. Then the promises they made are half kept, while behind our backs they do there own agenda.

So what can we do to get more people to Vote?

1. Some how we must convince them there vote counts.

2. Convince them that the candidate will do there Job.

3. Inform them better about Candidates. The Facts and not propaganda!

4. That there is Hope for this Country!

So here are a few of my own thought.

I love your post on Facebook they are funny and entertaining. Some of them have links to a page with all the facts about the subject! They should all have a link to the facts! We the people are bombarded daily with Half truths twisted to sway the reader! We all know the media does this and more of us would like the whole story so we can make our own opinions.

The Tea Party should put a little more focus on local elections! These are people that are known to the voters. When they get a office then they should endorse candidates for state that they know etc. up the line. States need to stand up to the Federal Government Not bow down to it! I know this is the job of the local Tea Party group. We need to be pushing hard on State Governments To Make it illegal to enforce Obamacare and federal Gun laws. All states need to reword there constitutions making themselves back into sovereign states the way they were intended to be in 1776!

This Last thought is just a personal opinion but I don’t think I’m alone in it! It might be helpful to stop making reference to Mr. Lincoln as a great president in some of your post. True Southerners have a much different opinion of Mr. Lincoln. We would say Mr. Lincoln started this mess we are in today. He blatantly disregarded the constitution of the U.S. on several issues! He lied to the People read his first inaugural speech, his second and then read Gettysburg address? Enough on that as I don’t want this to be History lesson but focused on “what can we do to save our Country!”

In closing I fear that the Federal Government as it is will Self Destruct in less then 25 yrs, Unless It is fixed fast. Some people feel this may be the best thing to start over with the original Constitution! There is much work to be done to preserve the local and state Governments so there is not complete mayhem if the Federal Government does collapse. The local and State Governments per the Constitution should be stronger then the Federal government so I feel we need more focus on them.

"Hello" to all my fellow Virginia Patriots!!  Together, we will stand and fight to restore our communities, State and Federal government to fall in line with the Founding Father's concepts of fiscal responsibility, limited government and personal responsibility and return the United States of America back to its true greatness.  I am proud of all willing to stand up and make this happen.  God bless you all.

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.
