Wolf tells tea partiers GOP can fix nation's problems

Congressman addresses about 200 at rally

Members of a local conservative political group gathered in Herndon Monday to hear U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Dist. 10) address their concerns.

About 200 members of the Northern Virginia Tea Party, including head organizer Ron Wilcox, jammed themselves into the back room of the Amphora Diner in Herndon around noon to hear Wolf give an impromptu "State of the Union" speech and address specific questions about the future of the Republican Party.

"I have never been more concerned for our country," Wolf said. "If we were a business, we would be filing for bankruptcy."

For about five minutes, Wolf painted a dire picture of a U.S. whose debts are being continuously purchased by foreign powers while the current administration spends money foolishly.

"This administration has failed," Wolf said, "America may lose its AAA bond rating by 2013. Meanwhile President [Barack] Obama recently approved $23 million to be spent ratifying the constitution of Kenya."

After his short speech, Wolf was peppered with questions by tea party members wanting to know what he and the Republican Party were going to do about the future of the country, which many referred to as a "sinking ship."

"I have a reputation of honesty and integrity," Wolf said. "You can believe me when I tell you that a Republican Congress will come in next year, and it will address everything that needs addressing." Former Herndon Town Council member Ann Null asked Wolf what could be done by citizens working the polls to prevent voter fraud.

"The Republican Party should take on the responsibility of establishing teams of lawyers and a hotline that people can access if they witness any impropriety at the polls," he said. "These lawyers should be prepared to file immediate injunctions to keep voter fraud at bay. Anyone witnessing fraud should report it through this process."

After the short question-and-answer session, Wilcox thanked Wolf for attending and said the Northern Virginia Tea Party movement, which centers on fighting excessive government spending and taxation, was going strong.

"There are about 1,500 members and we are growing every day," he said.

"More and more politicians are coming to our meetings," said James Dimaria of Herndon. "They know that we are for real and that we are growing. They know they can not afford to ignore us."

"I think it is a healthy movement," Wolf said. "The tea party is a movement of the people and not an institutional one. The more citizen participation you have, the stronger a democracy becomes."

State GOP will vote on Cuccinelli's proposal for higher filing fees at state conventions

Anita Kumar

The Republican Party of Virginia's governing board will decide in December whether to adopt Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's proposal to dramatically raise filing fees for statewide candidates seeking the party's nomination at political conventions.

Last month, Cuccinelli called for candidates for governor to pay up to $50,000 and candidates for lieutenant governor and attorney general up to $25,000 to secure a spot at the party's nominating convention. He also wanted delegates to be charged for attending the convention.

Dave Rexrode, executive director of the Republican Party of Virginia, said members of the Republican State Central Committee will vote on whether candidates for statewide office, including U.S. Senate, will pay fees of up to $25,000 and convention delegates will begin paying a mandatory fee.

Mike Thomas, the party's first vice chairman, wrote the State Central Committee in an email that the committee reviewing the party platform wants to limit the amount to $25,000. "This proposed amendment was discussed at great length, with the committee members feeling that a proposed filing fee of $50,000 for the office of Governor was too high,'' he wrote.

In an interview last month, Cuccinelli said an increase in fees would help pay for the cost of the convention and ensure conventions remain an option for the party. He said the state party lost money at the 2009 gathering where he, Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) were nominated.

But some activists worry that raising filing fees could shut out candidates who have trouble paying the hefty fees to get into the nominating process.

"That's something that disturbs tea party patriots a great deal,'' said Ron Wilcox of Fairfax County, founder of the Northern Virginia Tea Party. "It's not in favor of tea party people being more involed in the Republican party. And that's very troubling."

The move is also likely to be seen as a way to ensure the party chooses a convention to nominate its gubernatorial candidate in 2013, a process that favors more conservative candidates who are popular with the party's grassroots -- like Cuccinelli.

But Cuccinelli has said that even with higher filing fees, conventions are cheaper for candidates than primaries, making them a better option for non-traditional candidates. And he denied that the move has anything to do with his own political future.

The costs of holding primary elections are paid by taxpayers, split between the state and local governments. Filing fees for primary elections are set by the state board of elections and set at two percent of the salary of the office sought.

The party plan previously called for gubernatorial candidates to pay $25,000 at conventions. But in March 2008, the party lowered filing fees to match those charged for primary candidates.

McDonnell paid just $3,500 to run unopposed at during the state GOP convention, or 2 percent of the governor's $175,000 salary. (Cuccinelli paid $3,000 in his three-way race while Bolling paid $762 to run against Patrick Muldoon).

In November 2009, after McDonnell, Bolling and Cuccinelli were elected, the amount was raised to 4 percent of the office's salary after some local parties complained that they had trouble paying for their meetings and conventions.

Convention delegates have not been required to be a mandatory fee since 1994. Last year, the more than 11,000 delegates were asked to pay $35, but many did not.

A Vote For A Liberal Democrat Is A Vote For United Nations Control Of America

ttp://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/28914
By Jerry McConnell Tuesday, October 19, 2010
Please! Fellow citizens, do not give the corrupt, power-mad liberals more time in Congress—their goal is to destroy our Constitution, and our Country and be ruled by United Nations tyrants.

And this message is also for the other members of the Democratic Party that do not necessarily believe in the unorthodox methods and beliefs of their three radical leaders, Obama, Pelosi and Reid. Many are good Americans, like my father, who believed in America first and Party second. If his choice was to vote with his Party for a program that would saddle our country with huge debt and taxes on our citizens just to say that they could do it, he would vote against it. Those kind of Democrats are rare today.



Last Sunday (10/17) John Lillipop wrote a brilliant summation of the evils that the current Administration and its accomplice liberal Democrats in Congress have been and are still planning to inflict on our country. I was so impressed with the urgency and truth of what he detailed in his column here on Canada Free Press on Sunday, October 17, 2010, that I was moved to write this column of total agreement and further warnings to good, honest Americans who still love freedom and want to keep our country the same.

As this is being written, Obama and his State Department hatchet-woman, Hillary Clinton, are in the process of giving the United Nations total unilateral control over all of the weapons in the hands of all Americans. They are trying to do this WITHOUT even giving the citizens of America a chance to refuse such a treacherous and traitorous action. How dare they accommodate people who would scuttle us in a gnat’s whisker of time? This dictatorial conduct must not be allowed to go unpunished.

We MUST NOT ALLOW this double-crossing disloyalty to our country’s honest and true-blooded citizens to occur, because once they remove our only avenues of protection, we are helpless and will fall under the control of those who hate us just for being what we are; the greatest country ever.

For all those of you who doubt this or are in agreement with the traitorous liberal Democrats, many of whom are being duped unconsciously, please do an Internet search with the words, “Obama Clinton UN Gun Control.” You will be amazed at the sneakiness and outright unfaithful conduct both our usurper president and his willing accomplice Secretary of State would inflict on our unsuspecting country.

John Lillipop listed several items of disloyalty and certainly, impeachable offenses against the citizens of our country for which he is to be commended. Time is running out for corrections that can be made to put a halt to these unprincipled actions that would sink our country to the levels of the worst third world rogue nations.

Fellow citizens, we have less than two weeks before the elections on November 02, 2010; but in that short period, much harm and damage to our country can be administered by those power-mad liberals who have headed our country down the slippery slope to socialism-communism. We have to be extremely watchful of the actions of these American traitors who are citizens of doubt eager to sink our wonderful ship of state.

Led by the fortunes and finances of the nefarious Bildeberg Group consisting of multi-billionaires who are bored with the status quo that Americans love so much, there have obviously been promises made by such “should-be felons” as George Soros, the Rockefellers, Buffet and that ilk, to our liberal Democrats of the glorious “One World” universe controlled by them and other tin-pot despots of third world fame. These dupes, so easily lured and converted to be anti-Americans, follow along hook, line and sinker to the termination of the most successful country ever in existence in our world.

Please, Mr. and Mrs. Loyal America, take a stand with Mr. Lillipop and me and call out these traitors by voting AGAINST them even if you feel disloyal; because that feeling of disloyalty is justified by stopping the destruction of all that our county stands for; goodness, honesty and the principles of our founding fathers who took that same stand AGAINST the tyrannical forces of their day to put forth this great nation.

Stand with Americans who love their country; not those who would sink it for personal gain. Benedict Arnold was in that latter category and you know what real Americans think of him in history.

1963 Communist goals to destabilize the United States

Just in case you've forgotten:

This is a list of communist goals to destabilize the United States, as presented to a Congressional hearing in 1963:

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers
.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

How far do you think they have come in achieving their goals? Cite the number and why you think that particular goal has been achieved!

More on the Northern Virginia Tea Party – Crystal Clear Conservative

In an earlier post, I mentioned that I was going to conduct an interview with the organizer of the Northern Virginia Tea Party, and I followed through with this by interviewing Ron Wilcox, who is organizing the Tea Party, which will be taking place at the Merrifield Post Office on April 15th from 5-7 p.m. I would like to thank Mr. Wilcox for his time, and I hope to see everyone at this event.

CCC: Why did you decide to throw a tea party?
RW: I was fed up with the out of control spending by the current Administration. The Administration is closely coordinating with the media to tamp down any opposition to their policies. Americans feel that NO ONE in Washington is listening to them. The silent responsible majority needs to be given a voice to counter the daily spin in the mainstream media.

I also felt the need for the I decided to organize Northern Virginia Tax Day Tea Party, because I felt that there was a real need to organize Northern Virginia for this and future Tea Party events. The DC event is in the middle of a work day preventing participation by many and others who simply do not like to go into DC for logistical reasons. Organizers say that we are on track to have 1250 tea parties nationwide with the goal of as many as 2009.

CCC: How many people do you anticipate to have at the event?
RW: I anticipate 200 or more people that are fed up with out of control Government, the area I have selected will be seen by every single person going to pay their taxes and could facilitate hundreds more demonstrators stretching down both sides of Lee Highway.

CCC: Have you experienced any issues with arranging a site for the tea party?
RW: We do not require a permit for our area but are working with the traffic authorities for everyone’s safety.

CCC: Will there be any guest speakers at this event? If so, who?
RW: We have invited State Senator [and current Attorney General candidate] Ken Cuccinelli and Congressman Frank Wolf.

CCC: Do you hope that this will spur other activist events in the future?
RW: Do I ever! Silent majority no more. We have a form on our web page so that people can sign up to get involved and be informed of this and other similar upcoming events.

CCC: What other groups have partnered with you to make this event possible?
RW: We are working with a number of civic minded individuals and groups. We are working with the DC Tax Day Tea Party and the Virginia Tax Day Tea Parties to help publicize our events. Also, we are coordinating with the Reston Tax Day Tea Party for maximum impact and attendance. The Reston event is being organized by the American Conservative Party. We will be posting their event on our website shortly when we have worked out a few details. We are also looking to work with the Leadership Institute for a 4th of July Tea party at their annual Conservative Soiree at Bull Run Park.

Tea Party Meet: Co-option Concerns — But Tough Proposals

“‘Is the governor going to fight for limited government, or is he going to be soft on limited government? You hear a lot of chatter about it. But let me just say this: The governor was elected for limited government and lower taxes. He needs to follow that,” said Ron Wilcox of Fairfax County, founder of the Northern Virginia Tea Party. ‘There’s been some troubling signs. I won’t deny that. But there’s still time.’” - - The Washington Post

The Washington Post’s Anita Kumar highlights a growing concern among grass-roots conservatives in her report late yesterday evening “At Va. tea party gathering, insurgents worry GOP will ‘co-opt the movement’ ” - -

“‘Some number of elected officials make sense, but we don’t want to come off like this is the establishment,’ said Dan Arnold, chairman of the Manassas Tea Party, which formed in April and boasts more than 200 members. ‘Our job is to hold the establishment accountable.’

The tea party, still in its infancy in Virginia, includes many members who supported McDonnell and fellow Republicans Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II last year but still consider themselves independents or libertarians. Some even voted for Democrats in past years.

‘Some in our group are worried it will be too much of a Republican show and they are letting Republicans control it,’ said Robert Alexander of Newport News, one of the organizers of the Peninsula Tea Party, which was created on tax day in 2009. ‘Everyone is concerned the Republicans are going to co-opt the movement.’” (Underscoring Forum’s.)
