RE: Burleson Tea Party

SUBJ: City of Burleson is Not Shutting Down Tea Party

Concerned Citizen:

The City of Burleson is NOT TRYING TO STOP THE APRIL 15 TEA PARTY.

Members of the Burleson Tea Party group have contacted the City of Burleson wanting permission to conduct a demonstration in an area near the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard (State Highway 174) and Hidden Creek Parkway. The area is across the street from the location of the Burleson Super Wal-Mart, and adjacent to a residential area. The area where the demonstration has been planned includes right of way for the state highway, municipal right of way, and a city street. The organizer said the event is expected to draw between 300 and 500 people to participate in the demonstration.

From the beginning the city has made it clear that no city permit is required for the gathering. This being said, the city has also made it clear that there are a number of safety related concerns that need to be addressed at the originally proposed location. It is one of the busiest street intersections in the city. The posted speed limit on Wilshire/SH 174 is 50 mph. It is a 4-lane highway with a center turn lane. It is a heavily travelled highway, particularly during the hours of the planned demonstration (3-7 pm) when school is dismissing and evening going home drive-time traffic is at its peak. The original request also included the barricading of four residential streets to keep group members from parking in the neighborhoods. The city’s main concerns are safety of the demonstrators and other pedestrians, traffic safety, and the ability for fire trucks to get in and out of the residential streets and hook up to fire hydrants. In speaking with representatives from the Texas Department of Transportation, it is clear that TxDOT and the city share the safety concerns.

The city has a special events committee that reviews requests for street closures (for example, neighborhood block parties, festivals). That committee met Thursday to review the request. Due to the topography of the area and the design of the highway, the number of anticipated participants in the demonstration, and the other safety concerns the special events committee has suggested that an alternative site be considered. In fact, in an attempt to accommodate the group, City Hall, site of many community festivals, was offered as an alternative site. Nevertheless, although the site originally proposed for the demonstration presented numerous safety concerns, the committee was willing to take steps to accommodate the event if certain steps could be taken by the organizers of the event to assure safety for everyone involved.

At the time the attached news release from the city was issued this morning, we had not heard back from the organizers of the event. We since have had several discussions with the organizers and it is our understanding that an alternative site has indeed been secured. You can contact the organizers of the event for the final location.

There are a few things that need to be made clear. First, Rey Gonzales, one of the members of the city’s special events committee, is a good man and dedicated public servant that works very hard every day to make our city a great place to live. He is not trying to stop the tea party, and from my understanding has worked hard to accomodate the organizers. Second, our city functions with a Council-Manager form of government. As such, the mayor is not responsible for running the city on a day-to-day basis, and I have no authority to try to stop a function like the tea party. Third, a number of people have e-mailed nasty comments about our city and our city government–Burleson is a great place to live, work, learn and play. The members of our City Council and staff are concerned with one thing only–doing what’s right for our citizens. If you come to Burleson I think you will agree it’s a great place, and I hope you spend some time in some of our great stores and restaurants–you might want to check out our “Old Town” area.

By the way, I have read and studied our Constitution–I’ve even taken an oath to preserve, protect and defend it. I take that oath very seriously.

Sincerely,

Ken Shetter

Mayor of Burleson, Texas

PATRIOT ALERT: BURLESON, TEXAS TEA PARTY CANCELLED?

I just saw this item over at MsPlacedDemocrat and tracked it back to FreedomWorks.org.

Time to jam the email boxes, phones and fax machines and let Mayor Kenneth Shetter of Burleson, Texas know that the Tax Day Tea Party WILL BE ALLOWED (oh please, I can’t believe I even have to type that – carry your copy of the Constitution as your official permit and proof of insurance), and ask that Mr. Gonzales (fascist-not-even-in-charge) must be fired or step down for not reading the Constitution and not being a true American.

City of Burleson Tries to Cancel Tea Party

BREAKING NEWS: The City of Burleson, Texas is trying to shut down a Tax Day Tea Party planned for April 15th!!

According to local organizers, unelected “street supervisor” Ray Gonzales, informed them that he was going to prevent the event from happening.

Mr. Gonzales told organizers that he is on a special events staff, which is under the city manager’s office in Burleson. Gonzales explained to one local organizer that the special events staff had decided this protest was “not in the public interest.” He is telling organizers that David Wynn, the city manager, is his boss, and could overturn this decision. For the record, the city manager’s office told local organizers that they do not need a permit to demonstrate in Burleson, and they are not saying that the organizers need one now.

I will post an update as soon as I get one from the local organizers, but I have been told that Mr. Gonzales is trying to get the Texas Department of Transportation to stop the tea party from happening.

Those who cherish liberty must stand with our friends in Burleson, Texas, and demand that the local government immediately drop all attempts to cancel the Burleson Tea Party.

Call and email them now!!!

Burleson Tea Party

“Here’s To You Mr. Jefferson”

I am all good with this until Mike Church gets to Reagan; he was as much a part of this problem as the traitors in DC right now.  I am currently trying to ascertain how long it has been since we had a president that wasn’t chosen by power players in the background; Jackson, Lincoln?

The Republicans just voted with the Democrats to pass the Pay for Performance Bill, the next G20 is going to be held in NEW YORK in SEPTEMBER (See Pilgrim Society), and the House is going to pass the “let’s sink the American Economy” $3.8 Trillion Budget, “rock around our descendent’s necks”, tonight.

All of that being said – enjoy!!!

Patrick Henry Redux!

Remember our Marine?  Glad to see the Pilgrims haven’t shut him down yet.

From July4Patriot:

Inspired by an incredible speech given March 23, 1775, by Patrick Henry at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia. It saddens me how easily the words of our founders can be applied to today.

Get ACTIVE.

ACTIVE MISSION STATEMENT

Active, The American Constitution and Capitalism Defense Front, is a permanent and enduring organization of American citizens dedicated to maintaining the foundational principles of the United States of America, as initiated by its Declaration of Independence and realized by its Constitution and economic system of free-market capitalism.

These founding documents and this economic system define the United States, and as such, there is no United States without them.

The changing tides of time allow for the development of threats capable of abolishing both, either through overt attack or the processes of slow erosion and unconstitutional change. The principles of free-market capitalism are eternal, and the only legitimate process to change the United States Constitution is that which is prescribed within it.

As such, it is a moral imperative for each and every loyal American to dedicate a sufficient amount of their blood, sweat, and tears to the preservation and defense of both the Constitution and free-market capitalism.

United we stand, divided we fall. Upon this eternal truth we hereby declare that it is incumbent upon the people of this great land to come together in broad union to demand that the freedoms granted to us by God, protected by our Constitution, and given wings by our self-chosen labors, are left intact.

We are the people by which the government is of and for. We are the grantors of the power that the government wields. We are the people who can recall that power from the government at any time of our choosing. We are the citizens of the United States of America. We are the defenders of the greatest nation in the history of man, and we are hereby responding to the call to become ACTIVE.

“Liberty Will Reign” Again In America!

Watch! Listen! Hear! Act!

The very same people enslaving our forefathers are now enslaving us.  A few thousand “noblemen” from the American Aristocracy and the English Aristocracy and we are blindly PAYING THEM TO DO IT!  Time to SUSPEND YOUR DISBELIEF.  There is no conspiracy, there just is what there is.  WE ARE THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS of the Congress! The day is rapidly approaching when we will become a force that has nothing left to lose.  Contact your Tax Day Tea Party coordinators and start talking about Washington DC.  What good is a Tax Day Tea Party if you continue to pay Congress with your tax dollars?

From the INCOMPRABLE Shtuey!

Over the course of the 2008 Election cycle I have become aware that a great many Americans misunderstand, or misinterpret the Constitution of the United States, specifically the Bill of Rights. People tend to see the first ten amendments as consisting of rights granted to us by the Constitution. This is essentially what we are taught in public school from a young age. I myself labored under this misguided notion for many years until I realized that this is wholly and totally false. The Bill of Rights does not guarantee us any rights whatsoever. It defines the rights that the government cannot attempt to abrogate, and grants us any and all powers not given to the federal government, or the states.

The Declaration of Independence states that we are “endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” The Bill of Rights elucidates more of you’re unalienable rights, and makes it plain the government may not infringe upon them.

This is a vital distinction of the utmost importance. It is failure of Americans to understand this that allows the government to impinge upon that which is yours. As I have mentioned numerous times, all three branches of government are in violation of the Constitution.

Your right to peacefully assemble, to worship the religion of your choice, to free speech, to petition the government for a redress of grievances, to habeas corpus, to be free from warrantless invasions of your privacy, to not have soldiers quartered in your home, to possess and bear arms…these are your inherent rights. Governments do not have the power to grant these rights, or take them from you. You are born with them. They are your birthright, and it is your obligation as an American citizen to stand up and oppose any body that attempts to infringe upon your rights.

You have the unalienable right as a human being, not simply as an American, to peaceably assemble. The Constitution clearly states that this right cannot be abridged. Exercise that right. We have the indefeasible right to speak freely. No longer refer to our elected officials as Senator this or Congressman that or Representative the other. These men and women are criminals. They are in violation of the Constitution of the United States. We are not obligated to observe or abide by any law that this Congress issues, or this President signs. Any one of them that fails to stand up to the Executive is a criminal; period.

Now is not the time for fear. Now is the time for courage. Before the delegates of the Continental Congress voted for independency they sent a peace offering to the king of England, a petition for a redress of grievances, and an attempt at reconciliation that became known as the Olive Branch Petition. The king never set eyes on it. He declared the colonies to be in a state of rebellion, and that the leaders of the revolt, and anyone else participating in it could either swear fealty to the Crown, or be executed as a traitor. These same delegates signed the Declaration of Independence; it was their death warrant. Had the revolution failed, all the names that have become icons of history: Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, Hancock, on and on…would have hung by the neck until dead. They staked their very lives upon the independency of this nation, to the good, and ill that it has committed over the last two centuries, so that there might be one place where the rule of law existed to one cause and purpose: defending human liberty.

Look within yourselves and draw on whatever strength you possess, whatever well of inspiration is within you. Your life, your children, their future posterity, their thriving or subjugation is entirely in your hands. Gather in your homes. Talk to your families. Talk to your neighbors. Whatever they might have thought of the man in the White House before, there is more than enough evidence to show that he is a liar and that he, and the people behind him, and the Congress that marches along without question, mean to do us and this republic irreparable harm. The time to dose your friends with the kool-aid antidote is now.

Time is short my friends. Gather. Speak out. Do not stop. Do not be silent. Now is the time for courage. Now is the time, regardless of where we came from, or how light or heavy our purse, to stand up and say, “No more!”

Phone calls are not enough. Letters are not enough. Your elected officials have offices in your state. Go there. Take your children. Put faces to the one thing they need almost as much as their money and power: your vote. You are a human being. Go to their offices. Show your faces. Make them see you. Email them photos of your families. If you can make the journey, go to Washington to see them. Go to their offices. Make their staff see you. Tell them you are not just a vote. You have needs, desires, dreams. They are not your masters unless you allow it to be so. Make it clear to them that if they do not oppose the man in the White House then their services are no longer required. Put them on notice that they do not rule by your consent. Fire the lot of them. They are nothing but criminals.

You are endowed with the unalienable right to live free from the rule of oligarchs and criminals. You have the indefeasible right to alter or abolish any government that does not effect your Safety and Happiness. Do not be afraid. They are flesh and blood, not gods. If they detain one of us, another takes their place. If they silence one, another will speak. And as the Mahatma said, if they kill us they will have our dead bodies, not our allegiance. If we come in non-violence and they arrest us; we win. If we come in peace and they kill us; we win. The only way we lose is by doing nothing.

Doing nothing is no longer an option. This is not simply a struggle to preserve our republic. This is a fight for human rights; your human rights. No government is endowed with the power to violate them, regardless of the words of dictators, or the policies of oligarchs. This is not about Republicans or Democrats, conservatives or liberals. Human rights knows no party, knows no ideology save one: Freedom.

We are human. It is our natural state to live free. We live free, or we die.

“Democrats Gone Wild”; HR1664 and HR1444

Representative Alan Grayson is OUT OF HIS MIND just like the rest of the non-representative representatives who need to just go home because their services are NO LONGER REQUIRED when they put this kind of fascist manure out on display.  Limiting the pay of any private sector employee is so far beyond the pale that I KNOW the Founding Fathers are just itching for a chance to bitch-slap idiots like Alan Grayson right into their next lives.  Anbody want to play “Slippery Slope”?  THIS is exactly the reason why government and private sector business are not supposed to mix!  Those companies should have been allowed to fail and stop the bleeding of the nation, except now we know why they were not allowed to fail.  I have to stop ranting; Neil does a fine job of skewering open-mouth breathing, dipstick Grayson.

For those of you that do not know about H.R.1664, go here.

Let’s move on to the next “Democrats Gone Wild” sideshow; H.R. 1444 which I wrote about last week which addresses spending our money with the purpose of Congress setting up a commission to study the feasibility of mandatory service for young people.  Why are we allowing them to spend our money on Hitler Youth 2.0 under the guise of patriotism and selflessness.  How about Field Of Dreams, “Build it and they will come” instead.  Make the programs available and people will sign up instead of coming for our children for indoctrination into the National Civilian Army.

Ladies and Gentlemen: it is time to end the fascist dictatorship of the 546 people running this country right now.  You and I could do a better job!

This IS The Center Of The Web: Meet The Pilgrim Society

This IS The Center Of The Web: Meet The Pilgrim Society

(Author’s Note: The law firms and world governments are checking in from time to time to see what’s new here at the Monster….surprise…is not the Internet a wonderful thang?)

The more I dig, the more I find.  My readers already know the cast of characters, or as I like to call them; America’s Aristocracy, and I am sure we will be running across more as we start to investigate the power elite.

Remember when I said that the Bilderberg Group was a red herring?

From Wikipedia:

The Pilgrims Society, founded in 1902, is a British-American society established, in the words of American past-president Joseph Choate, ‘to promote good-will, good-fellowship, and everlasting peace between the United States and Great Britain’. Over the years it has boasted an elite membership of politicians, diplomats, businessmen, and writers. It is notable for holding dinners to welcome into office each successive U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom and each new British Ambassador to the United States. The patron of the society is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Office holders, as of 2006, were:

  • President – Lord Inge
  • Chairman – Sir Robert Worcester KBE DL
  • Honorary Secretary – Mrs Tessa Wells
  • Honorary Treasurer – Ian E Barlow FCA

Seems pretty innocuous, right?  Then why do so few people know about a society that is so old and has so many wealthy, powerful, influential people in it?  And this society is not the only one.  You are not going to have to dig to see the correlations between then and now.

From Institute For The Study Of Globalization and Covert Politics:

Most people have at least vaguely heard of the “Eastern Establishment”. This is a reference to a group of people in the Northeast of the United States which to many appears to wield a disproportionate amount of influence over the nation’s politics. This influence, which goes back even further than the days of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. and J. P. Morgan, Sr. has been illustrated by the fact that a great number of individuals working in the senior positions of government have come from a number of New York-based banks, insurance companies and law firms, only to return to this group of banks and businesses after their public term came to an end. Often these individuals served in more than one administration, and together with a number of other peculiarities – think of controversial policies, suspected cover ups, ignored conflicts of interest, lack of media attention, etc. – some people have become suspicious of what at times appears to be almost like a permanent government. A 1962 newspaper column voiced these suspicions best:

“There is an establishment in the United States. The word “establishment” is a general term for the power elite in international finance, business, the professions largely from the Northeast, who wield most of the power regardless of who is in the White House.

“Most people are unaware of the existence of this “legitimate Mafia.” Yet the power of the establishment makes itself felt from the professor who seeks a foundation grant, to the candidate for a cabinet post or State Department job. It affects the nation’s policies in almost every area.

“For example, the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City, subsidized by Rockefeller interests since 1927 boasts a membership of at least 90 per cent establishment figures.” It is a social elite centered around a number of universities, a group of banks, insurance companies and law firms, and a group of influential, privately-funded foundations and think tanks.

<snip>

  • It is a social elite centered around a number of universities, a group of banks, insurance companies and law firms, and a group of influential, privately-funded foundations and think tanks.
  • It is centered in and around New York, even though at any moment a large portion of this group is active within the government and non-government institutions in Washington.
  • There is a close relationship with the British aristocracy and the British royal family via diplomatic officials, individual contacts, and private clubs.
  • The dominant religion is Protestant, in particular the Episcopal (Anglican) and Presbyterian churches.British branches of Freemasonry and Templar orders are popular.
  • This is the group behind the globalization process and members are generally great supporters of the United Nations and the sustainable development movement.
  • Catholic and especially Zionist interests are not very much appreciated.

You probably heard of some of these points before and you may or may not agree with them. So how can we prove to you that this list is true? To do that we need to begin our discussion on the Pilgrims Society.

Pilgrims history
At the turn of 20th century a number of influential persons were interested in bringing the establishments of the United States and Great Britain closer together. The St. George’s

Official Pilgrims logo. “Hic et Ubique” means “here and everywhere”, apparently a reference to the idea that the United States and Great Britain should stand together side by side everywhere. The eagle represents the United States; the lion Great Britain.

Society in New York, the American Society in London, and the growing network of Anglo-American League branches in England (founded by a good number of later Pilgrims Society members), were seen as inadequate, so the idea arose to form a new, elitist society with branches in both London and New York. This became the Pilgrims Society, which organized regular meetings in such prestigious hotels as the Victoria, the Waldorf Astoria, the Carlton Ritz, and the Savoy.The idea of setting up what ultimately became the Pilgrims Society was first discussed by a number of Americans working in London. One of them was Lindsay Russell, a well-connected lawyer from New York, who regularly visited London in these days to set up his law firm Alexander and Colby. It was Russell who got together with General Joseph Wheeler (on a visit in London), General Lord Roberts, and Sir Harry Brittain. Together they organized the original meeting of the Pilgrims of Great
Britain at the Carlton Hotel on July 11, 1902. The meeting was a success and two weeks later Lord Roberts was elected president of the Pilgrims; Lord Grenfell and Admiral Hedworth Lambton became vice presidents. Two other vice presidents were Americans: Senator Chauncey M. Depew (Yale Skull & Bones 1856; lawyer to Cornelius Vanderbilt; member of J.P. Morgan’s elite Corsair Club, together with William Rockefeller) and General Joseph Wheeler. Sir Harry Brittain became secretary and the Archdeacon of London, William MacDonald Sinclair, was elected chairman of the executive committee [2].

At the July 11 meeting the attendants also discussed their plans of setting up a branch in New York. Lindsay Russell and Chauncey Depew went back to the United States and approached such men as Bishop of New York Henry Codman Potter, J. P. Morgan, Sr., and former U.S. President Grover Cleveland (a good friend of the Morgan family and employed by them since at least the 1880s). Under the leadership of Bishop Potter, the Pilgrims of the United States organized their first formal diner on February 4, 1903. The two societies have been organizing meetings ever since [3].

The Pilgrims network
Over the years more and more influential persons joined the Pilgrims Society, including virtually all the well known bankers, robber barons and their associates. Going through membership lists of the Pilgrims of the United States you’ll find the following families:

Astor DukeMellonStillman
Aldrich (Copeland) Du PontMeyerVanderbilt
Belmont GouldMorganWarburg
Baker Harkness PeabodyWatson
CarnegieHarrimanPyneWhitney
DillonLamont Reynolds*
DodgeLodgeRockefeller*
DrexelLoebSchiff *

Within the ranks of the British Pilgrims one comes across a great many Barons, Viscounts, Earls, Marquisses, and Dukes. Members of the British royal family have been patrons of the Pilgrims Society since its inception and regularly attend meetings. Here also well known banking families as Baring, Hambro, Harcourt, Keswick, Rothschild, Kleinwort, Loeb, and Warburg can be found, just as the heads of Barclays and the British managers of U.S. banks as Chase Manhattan and J. P. Morgan.

At the moment of this writing the membership list compiled by PEHI contains 1496 names, the vast majority of them from the United States (rough estimate: about 82% or 1227). Analyzing the biographies of these members doesn’t just show that the Pilgrims are part of the WASP elite – they are the WASP elite. The following banks, law firms, and insurance companies have been headed by Pilgrims Society members – usually for generations:

Banks

American Securities Corp. Federal Reserve Kidder, Peabody and Co. Morgan Joseph & Co. Inc.

How many of these banks have we bailed out?  How many of these law firm names do you recognize as being visitors to this site?  What about AIG and all it’s backers in Congress?

Looking at these tables, it is clear that the major banks of New York and London have been very prominent in the Pilgrims Society, closely followed by a group of influential law firms and insurance companies. A number of corporations have also had a considerable presence in the Pilgrims, comparable to some of the law firms and smaller banks. The most prominent of these might well be IBM, of the Watson family – but the founders and owners of Chrysler, Dodge, Jardine Matheson, W.R. Grace & Co., Reynolds, Corning Glass, and Forbes have all been Pilgrims. A vast range of other corporations have been represented by Pilgrims, but do not appear to have been part of the core of the Anglo-American establishment.
