In this 1958 speech, Robert Welch, founder of the often maligned John Birch Society states that America is going to be destroyed from within. Mr Welch goes on to list point by point how this will be carried out.

If more Americans had listened back in 1958, the country would not be in the situation it is now in. Everyone should now listen to Robert Welch’s crucial message and take action – before the opportunity to restore America has passed us by.

Tens of Thousands Protest Obama Initiatives at Capitol

Tens of Thousands Protest Obama Initiatives at Capitol.

Lashing Out at the Capitol
Tens of Thousands Protest Obama Initiatives and Government Spending

Tens of thousands of conservative protesters, many complaining that the nation is racing toward socialism, massed outside the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, angrily denouncing President Obama’s health-care plan and other initiatives as threats to the Constitution.

The crowd — loud, animated and sprawling — gathered at the West Front of the Capitol after a march along Pennsylvania Avenue NW from Freedom Plaza. Invocations of God and former president Ronald Reagan by an array of speakers drew loud cheers that echoed across the Mall. On a windy, overcast afternoon, hundreds of yellow “Don’t Tread on Me” flags flapped in the breeze.

“Hell hath no fury like a taxpayer ignored,” declared Andrew Moylan, head of government affairs for the National Taxpayers Union, urging protesters to call their representatives. The demonstrators roared their approval.

“We own the dome!” they chanted, pointing at the Capitol.

The demonstrators are part of a loose-knit movement that is galvanizing anti-Obama sentiment across the country, stoking a populist dimension to the Republican Party, which has struggled to find its voice since the 2008 elections.

With Democrats in control of Congress, battling the president legislatively has been difficult. But after a spring of anti-tax rallies and summer health-care protests proved to be effective, a growing number of GOP leaders are dropping their wariness and seeing the political possibilities of latching onto this freewheeling coalition. Others are cautious about embracing views that can be seen as extremist.

The protests in recent months come as Obama is trying to regain control of the health-care debate and bolster public confidence in his leadership.

Authorities in the District do not give official crowd estimates, but Saturday’s throng appeared to number in the many tens of thousands. A sea of people surrounded the Capitol reflecting pool, spilling across Third Street and along the Mall. The sound system did not reach far enough for people at the edges of the rally to hear the speakers onstage.

“You will not spend the money of our children and our grandchildren to feed an overstuffed government,” Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) said of the Obama administration, drawing raucous applause.

“Our history is decorated by those who endured the burden of defending freedom,” Price said. “Now a new generation of patriots has emerged. You are those patriots.”

The group’s sponsors included FreedomWorks, a Washington-based group headed by former House majority leader Richard Armey (R-Tex.), and the groups Tea Party Patriots and ResistNet. They and others involved in the rally comprise a loose coalition of conservative groups that helped organize the health-care and anti-tax demonstrations in the spring and summer.

“Health care is not listed anywhere in the Constitution,” said Brian Burnell, 45, who owns an insurance company on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. His placard read, “How Is That Hopey Changey Thing Workin’ Out For Ya?”

“You want socialism?” said Susan Clark, a District resident marching with a bullhorn. “Go to Russia!”

The huge turnout indicated the growing frustration with Obama among conservative activists and showed that his nationally televised speech Wednesday did little to move his political opponents on health care.

Although it is unclear whether the demonstrators represent a large segment of voters or even of Republicans, Saturday’s march illustrated that activists, some of whom are not enthusiastic about the GOP, have been galvanized.

The White House declined to comment on the demonstration, but Democrats said the rally and other protests in recent months represent a small minority of voters and will not slow Obama’s proposals.

“There is a lot of intensity on the far right to defeat the president’s agenda, but I am not sure that holding up signs that say we have to bury health reform with Senator Kennedy will go over well with moderates and independent voters,” said Doug Thornell, an adviser to Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.).

Saturday’s demonstrators spanned the spectrum of conservative anger at Obama, including opponents of his tax, spending and health-care plans and protesters who question his U.S. citizenship and compare his administration to the Nazi regime.

Most signs were handmade: “Socialism is UnAmerican,” “King George Didn’t Listen Either!” “Terrorists Won’t Destroy America, Congress Will!” and “The American Dream R.I.P.” Many protesters carried the now-familiar poster of Obama made up to look like the Joker, captioned “Socialism.”

“Nobody’s standing up for us, so we have to stand up for ourselves,” said Phil Chancey, 66, who drove to Washington from Clinton, Tenn.

“We’re all endangered!” shouted Dave Rue, 67, a retired Mobil Oil employee who traveled to Washington from New Jersey. “We’re endangered because they’re pushing socialism on us.”

Some came to protest what they see as government interference with gun ownership. Shaun Bryant, 40, a leadership trainer, was among eight people who flew in from Salt Lake City. They fashioned a sign with a drawing of an AR-15 assault rifle and the words, “We came unarmed from Montana and Utah . . . this time!”

Debbie Wilson, 51, of Apollo Beach, Fla., flew to Washington a week ago, driving to Colonial Williamsburg with her husband for sightseeing before the rally.

“We want our country to go back to the roots of doing what our Founding Fathers wanted us to do — less government in every aspect of my life,” she said. “We walked the streets of Williamsburg, and it felt like we were learning how to be a patriot.”

Dozens of signs mentioned Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), who heckled Obama during a Wednesday night speech to Congress. Dee Meredith, 62, of Callao, Va., said she had never heard of Wilson before he shouted at the president, “You lie!” At the rally, Meredith waved a placard: “Thank You Joe Wilson.”

“We’re the forgotten people,” she said, “and he’s given us a voice.”

When Armey, speaking to the crowd, referred to Obama having pledged to uphold the Constitution, the protesters shouted at the president in absentia: “Liar! Liar!”

Jeff Mapps, 29, a stagehand and labor union member from South Philadelphia, left home about 6 a.m. to attend the protest. He said he had not been involved in previous demonstrations but that he watches Fox News host Glenn Beck “all the time” and wanted to be part of an event that he thinks will be historic. Beck had drummed up support for the march.

Holding a sign that said “Preserve, Protect, Defend” on a Red Line Metro train packed with conservative activists, Mapps fretted over a “blatant disregard for the Constitution.”

“We’ve been watching it for six to eight months,” he said. “It was finally an opportunity to get involved. It’s been boiling over. . . . It’s not just about health care. It’s about so much more than that.”

Anna Hayes, 58, a nurse from Fairfax County, stood on the Mall in 1981 for Reagan’s inauguration. “The same people were celebrating freedom,” she said. “The president was fighting for the people then. I remember those years very well and fondly.”

Deriding what she called “Obamacare,” Hayes said: “This is the first rally I’ve been to that demonstrates against something, the first in my life. I just couldn’t stay home anymore.”

Sen. John Carona proposes best sobriety checkpoint bill I’ve ever opposed | pegasusnews.com | Dallas / Fort Worth


I’m not a fan, at all, of “sobriety checkpoints” on the roadways. Having grown up in the Cold War era, the whole idea has a bit too much of a “Can I see your papers, Comrade?” flavor to it for my tastes. Checkpoints where armed, uniformed agents of the state stop and question average citizens driving down the street were the kind of thing we used to point to under Communism in the old Soviet Union and say, “That doesn’t happen in America.”

But today, in many states, it does. And perhaps soon in Texas, too.

That said, SB 298 by Sen. John Carona authorizing sobriety checkpoints is one of the best efforts I’ve seen to focus the tactic in tightly on its stated goal of reducing drunk driving while avoiding Big Brother-esque pitfalls and revenue generation schemes that make civil libertarians wince at the tactic. Carona’s bill was placed on yesterday’s “intent calendar” in the senate (meaning it was eligible to be debated and voted on), but was usurped on the agenda by debates over higher education and the top ten percent rule. It could be voted on in the Texas Senate as soon as today.

I still oppose sobriety checkpoints and thus on principle I oppose this bill. I just don’t like the idea of police stopping motorists without probable cause, believing traditional DWI enforcement tactics work better and are less invasive. But if you think drunk driving is so bad that it warrants use of more totalitarian tactics, the limits Sen. Carona places on checkpoints are a laudable effort to address the main criticisms of the practice while still authorizing its use.

Here’s a summary of the legislation, which passed 9-0 out of the Senate Transportation and Homeland Security Committee:
