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

TEA PARTY -> Lois Lerner Case Explodes:
IRS Docs Link McCain’s Office To Tea Party Attacks

Since announcing his brain cancer was terminal, Arizon Sen. John McCain has continued to make headlines, but not due to his medical status. Instead, it has been one controversy after another revolving around him, and now one more had been added to the list.

This one is based in his dislike not for Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, but of the tea party.

McCain has never really endeared himself to conservatives, and he made his feeling public about the tea party movement at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor in 2015, according to a Yahoo report.

“I think also — I probably shouldn’t say this — but some of (the tea party) appeals to the bad angels of our nature rather than the better angels of our nature,” McCain said.

This attitude ties into the latest scandal swirling around McCain.

One of a number of scandals that plagued President Barack Obama and his administration involved the IRS targeting tea party groups after 2010. It seemed that their tax-exempt status requests were denied or delayed due to intense political partisanship in the agency.

In May 2013, The Washington Post reported that the IRS’s exempt-organizations division director Lois Lerner “let slip” the week prior “that low-level IRS staffers had focused extra scrutiny on conservative groups with words such as ‘tea party’ or ‘patriot’ in their names.”

In addition, “internal reviews have shown that Lerner knew about the targeting in 2011 — but neither Congress nor the public knew until (2013).” Despite this, Lerner was never prosecuted and was allowed to retire with her taxpayer-funded pension intact.

This did not change, even after House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam, an Illinois Republican, wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In it, they begged him to reopen a probe into the matter, according to Jay Sekulow, chief council for the American Center for Law and Justice, writing in a commentary for Fox News.

When President Donald Trump was sworn into office, some held out hope that the perceived injustices from Obama’s tenure would somehow be made right. However, in September 2017, Trump’s administration had already preemptively declined to pursue criminal charges against Lerner “based on the available evidence,” according to Fox News.

But more has since been uncovered about the scandal. Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has obtained and released “internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.”

Judicial Watch �dd0e

JW President @TomFitton: Much of what you know about the IRS scandal is thanks to JW... Our new docs show the scandal is bipartisan in nature. A McCain staffer suggested Lois Lerner audit all of the 501(c)(4) groups in a way that'd be financially ruinous.

Meeting notes from April 30, 2013, involving Kerner, Lerner, “and other high-ranking IRS officials” were obtained by JW. With the meeting taking place only 10 days before the IRS scandal exploded into the public view, they are particularly incriminating against Kerner and Lerner:

“Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time.”

“Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely.”

“Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints.”

“Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.”

Thus far, there is no evidence that McCain knew about or directed Kerner to take such action. It is plausible that Kerner, knowing of McCain’s dislike of the tea party, opted to be a proactive and loyal staffer by urging the IRS to take action against the groups.

But McCain’s personality does little to keep him far removed from the scandal and tongues are wagging with speculation as to his involvement. Regardless, McCain’s frosty relationship with President Donald Trump has not made the Arizona senator many fans among Trump supporters.

New suspicions about him betraying the tea party won’t help matters at all.

OMG

Chelsea Handler Says Fox Doesn’t Work With
Black People, Obviously Doesn’t Watch Network

Humor is supposed to be based on truth. After all, the reason we laugh at a joke or scenario is because it triggers a feeling of recognition about reality, especially if it’s presented in an unexpected way.

It doesn’t look like “comedian” Chelsea Handler has a very firm grasp on truth or reality, however.

After a production error during a Fox News broadcast was called out by users on Twitter, the raunchy and sex-obsessed Handler tried to bash the network … but ended up showing off her ignorance instead.

“Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle,” the comedian and television host posted on Twitter Thursday evening.

That part was true enough: Fox admitted that they made a mistake on a background slide during a tribute to the late soul singer, and accidentally showed a faded photo of LaBelle. The main image still showed Franklin, who passed away on Thursday in Detroit.

Broadcast television is complex, which you would think Handler understands after being involved in TV for many years. Honest mistakes happen on every network. But no: In Handler’s alternate reality, the only explanation for the mistake was racism.

“It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any,” she declared.

Chelsea Handler  @chelseahandler

Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle. It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any.

Was she trying to be bitter or funny? It was hard to tell, but either way, that statement shows just how isolated the Hollywood left is from reality.

If she really believes that Fox has “never worked with any” black people, maybe she should try an experiment: Actually watch the channel for a minute.

She would probably tune in to the face of Harris Faulkner, the enthusiastic and Emmy-winning host of “Outnumbered,” which airs every single weekday.

Or, maybe she could get a clue from Deneen Borelli, another well-known face of Fox News for nearly a decade. How about the venerable Juan Williams, co-host of “The Five” and a “Fox News Sunday” regular for over 20 years?

Nah. They apparently don’t count, because Handler would rather live in an alternate reality of ignorance than admit she was the one making racial assumptions.

We’re not finished! Moving on to frequent guest contributors to Fox News, how about Candace Owens? Brandon Tatum? Ben Carson? Larry Elder? All of these smart individuals are familiar faces at Fox, and all are — look closely! — African American.

That’s saying nothing of the behind-the-scenes staff at Fox, a good number of whom are of course black. In fact, it’s completely possible the photo mix-up was accidentally made by a black employee. Handler openly assumed the race of the staff members who made the error, while knowing nothing.

Once again, the left has tipped their hand and revealed just how elitist and out of touch they are.

Handler has likely never turned on Fox News in her life, yet she thinks she’s an expert on it. She eagerly diminishes and waves away the contributions of black Americans to one of the most popular news stations in the nation, while lecturing others about race.

This type of attitude implies that only “liberal approved” black voices count. If they don’t parrot a 43-year-old white comedian’s politics, they’re invisible to her.

That arrogant view, and not an honest editing mistake, is perhaps the real outrage here … and it’s exactly why so many black voters are walking away from the left.
