Goodbye to Don
We enjoyed a rousing celebration of life at Don Wilkinson’s Memorial Service.
“This was the greatest memorial service I ever attended. It was interesting, upbeat, and a celebration of life fully lived by our friend, Don…”

Chuckie Schumer Fail
Senator Charles “Upchuck” Schumer recently bad-mouthed Tea Parties while he thought the microphone was off during a briefing of freshmen senators. During the recording, he is heard coaxing members to describe Tea Partiers as extremists, and the cause of our fiscal problems. Check it out.
Chuck Schumer and Dems issue an official statement on the House Floor, refusing to stop massive and out-of-control spending, and blame the Tea Party for standing in their way.
Michelle Bachman puts it into focus.
More on this from Fox News.
Betsy on Point
Listen to former New York Lt. Governor Betsy McCaughey describe the horrendous and nefarious intentions of Obamacare, including an increasing our taxes by $410 billion, here. She is awesome. It is so refreshing to see and hear a top New York official actually advocating on our behalf. www.DefendYourHealthcare.us

NPatriot Meeting a Success
Thanks to all of you who attended our meeting this past Monday night, 28 March.
We hope you enjoyed hearing about the Charter High School for Applied Technology (CSAT) as much as we did. Susan Toomey’s presentation was inspiring and full of information on a topic we rarely see in the papers – charter schools. The current 100% graduation rate, the climate of discipline, respect, and achievement CSAT has accomplished at most with only 3/4 the funding of standard public schools – it’s so great to hear. The best part was meeting and listening to ten of the students from the school’s Select Choir close our meeting with the Star Spangled Banned and “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You” from their school’s Kenny Award nominated show All Shook Up.
April 16, 2011 — An Online Constitution Town Hall — sign up today.
GOD IS GOOD
TEANewYork has managed, by the grace of God, on virtually no funding and no contributions to speak of. Many have donated at our events to cover the costs of the venue, and we receive an occasional donation for which we are extremely grateful. We have not asked for donations, because again, God provideth much~! However, if we would like to see some growth, and begin to be a more effective force for positive change, there is much we can do with a little influx of money. We have established TEANY PAC as a means by which we might best utilize your hard-earned dollars, and you may DONATE HERE to contribute.
Youmay also indicate how you would like your donation spent.
Advertising — to promote Tea Party ideals and our events to the General Public for max impact
Class-Action Lawsuit — Suing the State over Back-Door Borrowing appears to be a very viable endeavor, as legal action seems to be the only thing our legislators respond to, to prohibit their on-going violations of the law. Because they haven’t a clue as to how to identify waste, eliminate fraud and redundancy, they borrow, borrow, borrow at our expense. But they can’t do it without voter approval, so they circumvent the process by going through the Authorities. The biggest offenders are the unelected bodies of the Thruway Authority and the Dormitory Authority. They borrow enormous sums of money, hand it right over to the State Legislature, and we have to foot the bill. We have an attorney who will do the initial filing for a song. Remember the 5x5x5 Plan? Forget that, and donate here~!
General Fund — for Website costs, for printing, for materials and a myriad of other expenses.
Just send us a note along with your donation, and if you don’t indicate how you would like it spent, it will go into the General Fund.
Remember Amnesty and the Dream Act that failed at the Federal level? Well, it now has new—and, perhaps, stronger—legs, with the introduction of a bill in the NYS Senate. It would grant not only driver’s licenses but college financial aid, health insurance, and state jobs to certain undocumented people. Read the story here.
There appears to be nothing in this bill about providing a path to citizenship.. Please tell me I’m wrong!
Please contact your Senators and ask that they get the NYS budget under control before adding a whole new host of recipients to money that doesn’t exist.
Buffalo 912 Monthly Meeting
Documentary – Rumors of War
We ran this documentary earlier and it was a real eye opener. If you haven’t seen it, here is your chance because there will be a part 2 coming out soon.
Rumors of War reveals the true threat level a nuclear Iran poses to the United States and our allies. We’ve spent an entire year researching and interviewing those closest to the situation, including former ambassadors and members of the Department of Defense. In this full hour documentary you will see things that are bone chilling, including shocking evidence of Iranian backed terrorists poised at America’s southern border ready to infiltrate our soil!

Obama is spending us into oblivion, probably intentionally bankrupting us, to launch us into One World disOrder with a One World Currency. Maybe the plan is to rely on America’s Hidden Wealth. One can never be too well prepared in times like these. Check out this info on Food Storage.

“This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” ~ Sir Winston Churchill Rally cry
