Absolutely stunning and obscene “rules” Congress has instituted for itself: Congress is not subject to the consequences for insider trading; in point of fact, they are IMMUNE to the laws that would convict the rest of us with heavy prison sentences. Congress has given itself permission to act on insider information not available to anyone in the general public, and they are free to trade, based upon rules or regulations instituted privately within the Congressional chambers. And we wonder why they go in worth a couple hundred thousand, and come out multimillionaires. VIDEO HERE by 60 Minutes.
Jack Abramoff, the most notoriously corrupt Washington lobbyist comes clean. Incredibly appalling and redeeming at the same time. Must Watch Video
The loss of the Erie County Executive’s seat is a sad, sad commentary on our uneducated populace, the power of false advertising and sliming your opponent without substance or respite, the strength of self-serving union muscleheads, the fatal mistake of not properly answering the false charges, and of not engaging in a little humble boasting. Not to mention The Dangerous Duplicity of Sandy Beach. O wait, I just did. Commentary by moi.
Congratulations to all who won (and a sincere Thank You to all who did not succeed).

Demand Mandate Relief
New York State has some of the highest school and property taxes in the nation. Unfunded and underfunded mandates passed down from both the federal level and state level are to blame. The taxpayers of New York are fleeing the state in record numbers. We need to put pressure on our representatives in both Albany and Washington to make changes before it is too late. Sign the petition from the Upstate Conservatives and make your voices heard!
The Unsuccessful Lynching
of Herman Cain.
Obama’s hired muscle has a long sordid history of destroying his boss’s opponents with false and trumped up charges of sexual harassment. Ann Coulter provides some enlightening investigative insight into what should shortly become The Unsuccessful Lynching of Herman Cain, in her article David Axelrod’s Pattern of Sexual Misbehavior.
Paid to Lie?
Was Sharon Bialek paid undisclosed amount to Lie about Herman Cain Sexual Harassment Charge?
“Who could turn down $5M+ put in an offshore bank account in exchange for lying about sexual advancements made by Herman Cain? … Bialek’s claims against Cain may begin becoming unglued if an independent private investigator, who wishes to remain anonymous at this time, provides evidence showing Bialek is being paid to lie in order to derail Herman Cain’s presidential campaign.”
The Shield Act
“Mike” from San Diego asked us to share this with you:
Hi! My name is Mike Rawluk, and I am a Tea Party member out in San Diego. I am trying to spread the word about HR 668, known as the SHIELD ACT. It deals with the critical protection of our electrical infrastructure by hardening it to survive an ElectroMagnetic Pulse attack from Iran or other threat, or from a solar flare. ElectroMagnetic Pulses occur when a nuclear weapon is detonated, and affects anything electrical within it’s line of sight. Continue reading, and see videos here.
“Bob” from Colorado asked us to share this with you:
Dear Tea New York,
As you know entitlements are out of control. The federal government spent $358 billion on 12 antipoverty programs in 2010 but it only would have taken $165 billion (Census Bureau numbers) to pull every American out of poverty! It is time for serious reform and elimination or consolidation of many of these programs.
I am a private citizen working to educate the public and push for meaningful change. When the citizens are armed with facts it seems to me that good things happen. I seek no financial gain whatsoever. Would you help spread the word to your club members or colleagues? Please point people to the website – FederalSafetyNet.com. I would also be happy to send you brochures which summarize the information. Just let me know how many and where to send them.
Thanks for helping and all the best,

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do
