Tea Party 365 Responds to Janeane Garofalo's Statement on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher 

A False Charge Of Racism Is Itself Racist

New York, NY…October 6, 2009 – It is clear to any reasonable American that on both sides of the political aisle there are fringe elements and not necessarily unique to one particular side.  In her first round of offensive statements after the April 15th nationwide Tea Parties, Janeane Garofalo sought some relevance by taking up the teabaggers and racists cry.  In my April 21st article 'Is Racism the Tea Party Concern – or an Awakened Electorate?' printed in Family Security Matters I stated that "Comedienne Janeane Garofalo, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and others who picked up the "teabagging" cry failed, because the truth cannot be hidden."

I find her statements offensive and insulting. I and millions of Americans share legitimate policy concerns about the wasteful spending by our government.  As the co-founder of the New York City Metro Tea Party organization, my issue is with the fiscally irresponsible policies coming out of Washington D.C. not the President's skin color.  Anytime disagreement is voiced over the President's policies the race card is played. This is disingenuous at best. I can state with certainty that I am not a part of, or would not be accepted by a white power movement.  There is only one race, human, and procreation is proof of that.

Janeane Garofalo is at best misinformed, and to the further extreme a race baiter without credibility.  I would welcome the opportunity to debate her in any public forum including on Bill Maher's show.  The question is could she handle an honest debate on issues and not spout hyperbole.

HCHR - Doctors For Obama Picks Audience, Distributes White Jackets!

Developing Story: The New York times is reporting that the group that assisted Team Obama to round up the Doctors for his white-coat audience was once called “Doctors For Obama” during the late campaign.   The White House also assisted in distributing white jackets as props.
Read the developing story

Developing Story: On Monday the Obama administration featured a gaggle of white-coated doctors rallying in support of Obamacare but it appears that Obama’s team was a bit out of its depth in arranging the handpicked cadre of physicians. As it happened, the president’s advance team accidentally invited a doctor that has long been opposed to Obamacare.

Special Report

PATRIOTIC GROUPS A SAD PART OF AMERICAN HISTORY

by Gordon Duff, Staff Writer

As in the 1930s, when the Great Depression swept through America, patriotic groups are springing up across the country like weeds?  The funding and message is much the same as then.  Illegal aliens are destroying America.  Communism is taking over.  Under it all, of course, is the real belief, that African Americans and Jews are the real enemy. 

The money, same as then:  Wall Street

Today the message is unclear but the dynamic the same.  Behind every patriotic group is a bank, an insurance company, an oil cartel or an arms manufacturer that lives on aggressive war. 

Their loyalties are always to money and those who help them steal it and keep it, the crooked politicians, the foreign dictators and the "patriotic" mobs who join the organizations they fund.

NRCC - Will Shea-Porter Back Skelton, McChrystal on Afghanistan? 

Senior Armed Services Dem Rebukes Obama Administration, Shea-Porter Still Silent

 Washington- Rep. Ike Skelton (D-MO), a senior House Democrat and chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, signaled this weekend that he backs the strategy for victory in Afghanistan laid out by the Obama administration in March. Now would be the perfect time for fellow Armed Services member Carol Shea-Porter to announce her support for Chairman Skelton’s calls for President Obama to finish the job in Afghanistan as the administration attempts to walk back a strategy laid out just months ago:

 “President Obama is exploring alternatives to a major troop increase in Afghanistan, including a plan advocated by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. to scale back American forces and focus more on rooting out Al Qaeda there and in Pakistan, officials said Tuesday… Aides said the president wanted to examine whether the strategy he unveiled in March was still the best approach and whether it could work with the extra combat forces General McChrystal wants.” (Peter Baker and Elizabeth Bumiller, “Obama Considers Strategy Shift in Afghan War,” New York Times, 9/22/09)

As the President and liberal leaders in Congress continue to back away from their commitment overseas, the commanding General on the ground has warned of dire consequences:

 “The top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan warns in an urgent, confidential assessment of the war that he needs more forces within the next year and bluntly states that without them, the eight-year conflict ‘will likely result in failure,’ according to a copy of the 66-page document obtained by The Washington Post.

 “Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal says emphatically: ‘Failure to gain the initiative and reverse insurgent momentum in the near-term (next 12 months) -- while Afghan security capacity matures -- risks an outcome where defeating the insurgency is no longer possible.’” (Bob Woodward, “More Forces or ‘Mission Failure,’” Washington Post, 9/21/09)

Sadly, Shea-Porter has remained silent even as Chairman Skelton indicates his expectation that Congress would support General McChrystal:

SCHEIFFER: Let me go to your counterpart in the House, Congressman Skelton. It’s my understanding you believe we ought to send those troops and get them out there right now, American troops.

SKELTON: I think we have to look at it from day one. The war really didn’t start until March of this year when the President came forth with a strategy – frankly an excellent strategy. He chose General McChrystal, who is the best in the business for this type of conflict. He asked General McChrystal for an assessment. He got that assessment. Of course that became known…it was public. And in essence he’s going to be asking for additional resources.

SCHEIFFER: So you’re going to back him up.

SKELTON: I back him up.

 

SKELTON: I think the House would support a gentleman, General McChrystal, that is running the show. There’s no question. (CBS’s Face the Nation, 10/4/09)

 “Carol Shea-Porter has the opportunity to stand behind Chairman Skelton and General McChrystal but she seems more content to remain silent as the White House appears to be hedging on their own strategy that they laid out in March,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. “Carol Shea-Porter should take a stand on this critical matter and add her name to the growing list of folks calling on the administration to allow General McChrystal to spell out his strategy before Congress.”

Now is the time for Carol Shea-Porter to speak up, but will she take a stand or will she continue to let her Washington leaders walk back their own plan for victory in Afghanistan?

NetRight Daily: Stimulating Our Way to Depression 

Stimulating Our Way to Depression:  In 1932, FDR had an opportunity to change the conventional way that governments deal with a recession.  His predecessor, Herbert Hoover, who also had a tendency towards central planning, had started the process.  Instead of allowing markets to correct themselves as they had in all the previous panics, as depressions were then called, both men instituted programs of government intervention.

Chicago Is Not the IOC's "Kind of Town":  How in the name of all that is good and just is Barack Obama supposed to bring lasting peace, true prosperity, and White House beer busts to the entire world if they won't even let him get in a little playtime in sweet home Chicago?

Congress Will Not Listen on Health Care:  It seems that our legislators, despite the thousands who showed up at their town halls to protest such measures,  despite the tens of thousands attending other TEA Parties across the nation all year and despite the millions attending various 9/12 rallies,  still do not understand the message the American people are sending. The American people want government to resume it's proper, Constitutional role.  For a good example, let's look at the current healthcare debate.

72 HoursIf a growing number of House members that signed a discharge petition for H. Res. 554 have their way, every single bill in Congress will be held for least 72 business hours Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) prior to passage for a mandatory review by each house.
