UNDER ATTACK – CHAPTER 5

Chapter Five

What Is The Tea Party?

How Can It Survive Now That Both National Parties Have Sworn to Destroy It?

There were two distinct concepts that defined the Tea Party in 2014. The first concept was that of an organic, grassroots group of patriotic individuals who believed in limited government and who believed the current federal government should be reduced in its size and scope. These were the fiscally responsible Americans who were truly concerned about excessive spending and the frightening increase in our national debt. They were also concerned about the multiple, massive federal bureaucracies that have been built as a result of this reckless spending and debt.

Equally troubling has been our government’s ongoing quest to remove God from government property and seemingly from our way of life. Among those who maintain strong Christian beliefs, these governmental actions create a significant level of fear and concern. Many fear that the removal of God from our nation will have grave consequences.

The Bible is full of warnings of what happens to nations when their people turn away from God. Our Founding Fathers were committed to keeping our nation under the blessings and protection of God. As Bible-believing Christians, they knew that, when nations turn their backs on God, the blessings and protection of God are removed and they suffer total annihilation. Our Founding Fathers did not want to see their creation of our nation destroyed in this manner.

The second conceptualization of the Tea Party was, and is, held by powerful individuals who continue to control our central government. They are the politicians who occupy the leadership of both major political parties. These power-hungry politicians saw the Tea Party as a “game changer” that must be stopped at any cost. In their eyes, the Tea Party still represents a dire threat to the centralized governmental power many have spent a lifetime to attain. To them, the Tea Party continues to have the potential to return a significant amount of power back to the states and to the people, as envisioned by our Founding Fathers. They fear we may once again become a nation of laws, and not a nation of men.

The Tea Party is unique. Unlike other national parties and national organizations, it does not have a single top leader to act as overseer or chief executive officer. Instead, it is made up of numerous small groups spread all across this country. Therefore, the Tea Party has many leaders—and no master. Although the Tea Party is made up of numerous separate groups, they are united in their desire to reduce the size of government and protect our liberty.

Lacking a single master or overseer, the Tea Party is not easily penetrated and subverted by its political enemies. No doubt, if the Tea Party had the same formal status and hierarchical structure as found in the two major national parties, sooner or later it would be infiltrated and subverted by the political enemies who desperately seek to destroy it. As a consequence, we would have three major national parties with corrupt leadership instead of just two major national parties with corrupt leadership.

When Bill Clinton became President of the United States and assumed the leadership of the Democratic Party, he brought with him a staunch liberal mindset. Although he was a practical politician who was willing to work toward compromise to pass legislation, he had a decidedly leftist bent. For this reason, some of the “Old Guard” conservative Democrats felt compelled to become Republicans, stating, as Ronald Reagan did before them, that they did not leave the Democratic Party, but rather the Democratic Party left them! We still had the same people, but they were just in a different party. As a consequence of a transfer of Democrats to the Republican Party over a period of many years, the Republican Party steadily became much less conservative and it has lost its way. This shift away from conservatism within the Republican Party is what spawned the Tea Party movement.

As you will read, repeatedly, throughout this handbook, the two major national political parties have become, in effect, just one party. They play against one another seeking positions of power, but all too often they do not play against one another to advance opposing agendas. True conservatives within the Republican Party recognized this unholy alliance among the elites of both major political parties, and they have taken action to counteract it by forming the Tea Party movement.

I want you to know what the Republican establishment knows and what I know: If there is a massive turnout of Tea Party members and other grassroots conservative Republicans in primary elections, you can most certainly defeat candidates supported by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. Yes, you can take back the party; and you most certainly know that, before you can take back America, you must first take back the Republican Party!

The Republican leadership knows that about 50 percent of Republican primary voters nationwide will be grassroots conservatives and Tea Party members. In addition, about six to 10 percent of the Republican primary voters nationwide will be hardcore, statist Republicans who consistently vote according to the desires of the Republican establishment. Finally, the Republican leadership knows that among Republican primary voters, about 40 percent will be moderates who can be persuaded to vote for the Tea Party candidate if given the proper message. However, they can also vote for the establishment Republican candidate if the only message they hear comes from the Republican leadership. Therefore, a powerful, persuasive Tea Party message is the key to victory!

The conservative 50 percent must persuade the moderate 40 percent to join with them. This can be accomplished by educating them about the fact that Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and other establishment Republicans seek to destroy the Tea Party and everything it stands for, including fiscal sanity.

Tea party members, other conservatives, and every single moderate, must be told over and over again that, when they vote for the Tea Party candidate in the primary election, they are not simply voting against a non-Tea Party opponent, they are truly voting against the Republican establishment that wants to destroy the Tea Party and the liberty that the Tea Party represents. When they vote for the Tea Party member, they are also voting against the candidates who represent Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and every other elitist Republican who is drunk on power and working to destroy our efforts to return to honest, lawful and constitutional government. This message must be conveyed not only by the Tea Party as a group, but, perhaps even more importantly, by every individual member of the Tea Party who must become a walking billboard, targeting every conservative and moderate within reach. Use your individual voice to spread the message about the elite and join with others who are like-minded.

Repeatedly drive home this vitally important point: Tea Party members (or whatever you now call your grassroots, conservative, political group) are the true representatives of the grassroots Americans who have maintained a genuine, deep-seated psychological, philosophical, and political connection to our Founding Fathers. They are the true lovers of liberty who are following in the footsteps of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Patrick Henry. Convince every conservative and every moderate in the party that they must work together, fight together, and pray together. If we do this, we will most certainly win together, just as we did in November 2016.

We are in a war. It is a political war, but it is none-the-less a war. We are fighting for the heart and soul of the Republican Party, and the heart and soul of America! Yes, the Republican establishment has declared war on the Tea Party and lovers of the Constitution. That means the Republican establishment, like the Democratic establishment, is at war with the founding principles that has made this nation the greatest nation on Earth. Surrender is not an option! If we lose this war (a war we did not start), our children and grandchildren will never know what it is truly like to live and breathe as free Americans.

Look around you and note what is most important to you. Fix your attention upon the people you love more than life itself. Do you realize there is much in your life worth fighting for and dying for? Yes, you would risk everything to protect that which you love. Transfer that feeling to love of country and love of liberty. Yes, the America you love is worth fighting for and it is worth dying for!

I would like to close this chapter with a quote from Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States of America. Take this handbook with you and recite Reagan’s words to everyone who will listen before they head to the polls to vote:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed down for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States when men were free.

(Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, 30 March 1961).

 

 

UNDER ATTACK – CHAPTER FOUR

Why The Pledge of Allegiance

Is A Lie Today

This chapter was inspired by a good friend who recently attended a meeting of fellow patriots. At the outset of this meeting, everyone rose to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, which has been a common practice among loyal Americans for many generations. However, as the group began to speak, my friend realized she could no longer recite the words, although she had cherished this historic pledge from early childhood.

 

She could not join this group of fellow patriots because, as she began to utter these solemn words, she realized they were no longer true! She was struck by the undeniable fact that the Pledge of Allegiance today is, in fact, a lie. When she conveyed this observation to me, I concluded that she had made a very profound declaration, and it served as a clear indicator of the real state of our union today. While listening to the crowd reciting the words of the Pledge of Allegiance, she realized the extent to which our nation has been fundamentally transformed from within; so she stood silently as they recited: “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

 

It almost sounds sacrilegious when I say the Pledge of Allegiance is a lie. We certainly do not want this historic pledge to be riddled with falsehoods; but let’s dissect it line by line. First of all, we say, “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America….” This line certainly remains true today, assuming the person who utters these words truly pledges his or allegiance to our flag. Next, we say, “…and to the Republic for which is stands….” Now search your memory and try to recall any politician, at any level of government, who has referred to our nation as a “republic.” Instead, they always seem to refer to America as a “democracy.”

 

Our forefathers were very clear on this issue. In Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, we find the following statement: “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union, a republican form of government….” Then, in the second paragraph of Article VI, it is stated that the U. S. Constitution “shall be the supreme law of the land.” The U.S. Constitution guarantees each state a republican form of government, and the U.S. Constitution is unquestionably the supreme law of the land. It is for these reasons that our Pledge of Allegiance states, “…and to the Republic for which it stands….” This is precisely why it does not say, “…and to the Democracy for which it stands….”

 

Why did our forefathers create a republic and not a democracy? Why are politicians, bureaucrats, media personnel, and educators trying to deceive us into believing we are a democracy, when the word democracy cannot be found anywhere in the U.S. Constitution?

 

In a republican form of government, the supreme power is held by the citizens who vote, and that power is exercised through their elected politicians who are to govern according to the law of the land. In a democracy, the supreme power is also held by the people who vote; however, that power is exercised by majority rule, not by elected politicians who are restrained by the rule of law. Thus a democracy allows for unlimited power under majority rule, and the majority may do whatever it wishes to do. Individuals within a minority group may become subservient to the majority, and the minority may have few, if any, rights. For this reason, our forefathers wisely created a republic wherein the majority is restrained by law; and they vigorously denounced democracy as an illegitimate form or government.

 

For example, Thomas Jefferson is considered the source of the statement that “a democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49 percent.” A definition of democracy sometimes attributed to Benjamin Franklin is “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.” Thus a republic is far superior to a democracy because it protects the natural right of the minority to be unmolested by the majority. Alexander Tytler warned in 1787 against a democratic form of government before George Washington became President. (A simple explanation can be found at http://commonsensegovernment.com/the-tytler-cycle-revisited/.)

 

With these definitions in mind, we can see why elite politicians of both major parties refer to our nation as a democracy instead of a republic. Through the media and educational establishment, they can incite a mob rule mentality among the majority of voters. For example, they can instigate class warfare against the “rich” and force them to pay their “fair share” to the non-rich, regardless of what the law may say. Additionally, the majority may codify laws to permit what professor of economics at George Mason University Walter E. Williams repeatedly calls “legalized theft” of our hard-earned money. Money confiscated through a mob rule democracy is always used to build a massive, powerful government and to buy the votes of the dependent majority to keep power-hungry politicians in power. Sadly, this is precisely what we have in Washington, D.C., today; and this is why my friend and I have concluded that the Pledge of Allegiance has become, regrettably, a bald-faced lie.

 

Another matter in the Pledge of Allegiance is the phrase: “…one Nation under God, indivisible….” We may now ask, are we “one nation under God,” or one nation under mob rule? Are we “indivisible,” or are we divided by those inciting class warfare between the poor and the rich; warfare by non-whites against whites; warfare by Islamists, atheists, and agnostics against Bible-believing Christians; warfare by global warming supporters against global warming skeptics, etc.? Clearly, we have been divided in more ways than can be listed in this handbook. America, the so-called “melting pot,” is gone and a “salad bowl” metaphor promotes and maintains divisions in the name of multiculturalism.

 

Abraham Lincoln quoted Mark 3:25 when he stated that a house divided against itself cannot stand. Therefore, when politicians, media pundits, and educators divide us, we are no longer a nation of “we the people,” but rather a nation where we have an “us against them” mentality. Yes, on many important issues, we have become polarized.

 

Lastly, do we enjoy “liberty and justice for all” today, or do we now have liberty and justice only for some? You may remember author and TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for misleading advertising, selling a faulty product, and repeatedly ignoring the law. In contrast, how much time will Obama serve for deliberately misleading us about Obamacare, selling us this faulty product, and repeatedly ignoring the supreme law of the land in bypassing Congress to alter Obamacare from the Oval Office? Yes, we now have liberty and justice for some, but not for all!

 

Sadly, to be honest today, we must now say, “I pledge allegiance to the Flag, and to the Democracy for which it stands, one nation under mob rule, divisible, with liberty and justice for some.” Notice that this Pledge of Allegiance says, “I pledge allegiance to the Flag,” but it does not say, “Of the United States of America.” These words are absent because the nation described in this pledge does not remotely resemble the nation depicted in the U.S. Constitution. It is not the nation founded by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. It does, however, accurately describe the nation in which we now live; and this is precisely why the authentic Pledge of Allegiance is a lie today.

UNDER ATTACK – CHAPTER THREE

Does the United States of America Still Exist, And Do The American People Still Have Any Rights?

In writing this chapter, I am forced to reflect upon some vital questions; and I would suggest that everyone who reads this handbook do the same. We are at a point in time when we must ask, can we still call ourselves “Americans” today? Do we have any rights that cannot be violated by Washington politicians, bureaucrats, and judicial activists? I fear that we the people have lost most, if not all, of our connection to our forefathers.

 

Over many generations, we have lost sight of our solemn duty to remain vigilant and closely monitor our government leaders.

When questioning if the American people still exist, I must answer that I don’t know. This answer may seem to be a copout, but it is not. Ask yourself, do you really believe that the American revolutionaries of 1776, about whom we read in our history books, would recognize us as their “fellow Americans?” Do we have the same spirit of independence as those early Americans who wrote the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution? Do we have the same courage as those American patriots who risked their lives to defeat the British Army and Navy, which comprised the world’s most powerful military at that point in time?

 

After fighting a brutal war for independence from governmental control, how would our forefathers describe the tens of millions of contemporary Americans who have eagerly surrendered that hard-fought independence and replaced it with total (or nearly total) dependence upon government? How would our forefathers view the Americans today who have voluntarily surrendered their economic liberty in order to receive minimal economic security in the form of monthly checks and food stamps? Would they even recognize us as fellow-Americans?

 

As noted in the previous chapter, our forefather Patrick Henry courageously stated, “Give me liberty, or give me death!” How many Americans would still say that today? How many Americans would now say, “Don’t give me liberty; give me dependency!” “Don’t give me liberty; give me a government check!” Clearly, many of us have severed our psychological ties with the independently-minded revolutionaries who founded this great nation.

 

Every check issued by the federal government expands its size and scope. By supplying tens of millions of taxpayer-funded checks on a monthly basis, the government extends its reach into every important area of our lives—from healthcare to education, retirement, communication, and transportation (to name just a few).

 

Most importantly, such learned dependency fosters a compliant and submissive attitude which paves the way for massive governmental intrusions into our personal, daily lives. Now we find ourselves living under the so-called “Patriot Act,” and the FBI, CIA, NSA, and other governmental snoops monitor our emails, telephone calls, and banking transactions. With Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare, the federal government monitors, and even determines, our personal healthcare choices. The government has thus entered our homes without a warrant and this intrusive, governmental behavior has rendered our Fourth Amendment rights null and void!

 

Clearly, the 9/11 terrorists’ attacks demolished more than the Twin Towers when they were brought down; they did more than damage the Pentagon when its interior was deeply penetrated; and they did more than destroy passenger airlines. In addition to all this, the 9/11 terrorists’ attacks destroyed the will of far too many Americans to resist intrusive government. At that point, an increasing number of Americans cut their ties with our forefathers. Too many simply stopped being freedom-loving Americans and willingly surrendered liberty for a false sense of security.

 

As noted in the previous chapter, our forefather Benjamin Franklin correctly stated that, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety” (Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759).

 

Unknown to many Americans, by surrendering our liberty in exchange for government-imposed security, the terrorists have won! Their goal is to destroy America; and, by destroying traditional American liberty, they have most certainly destroyed America. Indeed, for many in this nation, the terrorists have truly demolished the independent American spirit that guided George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and many more of our Founding Fathers. With massive government-imposed security, we now have a growing police state; therefore, we can no longer say we are the “land of the free and the home of the brave” (Key, F. S., “Star-Spangled Banner,” September 14, 1814).

 

Thankfully, not all Americans are willing to surrender their personal liberty in exchange for a false sense of security imposed by unrestrained politicians and governmental bureaucrats. It is within this group of freedom-loving Americans that we find members of the Tea Party, as well as those who describe themselves as Christian conservatives, constitutional conservatives, fiscal conservatives, social conservatives, and even self-described libertarians.

 

Yes, it is the joining of like minds among grassroots, liberty-loving individuals that offers any true hope of restoration. Only among those who continue to think and act like traditional Americans will we find the mindset necessary to re-establish the America founded by our forefathers who overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles to create the United States of America. The challenges they faced far exceeded the challenges we face today. This is not an underestimation of the trials and tribulations we face, but rather recognition of the fact that, if they could overcome their monumental barriers to victory, we most certainly can overcome ours.

 

Does the United States of America still exist? Remember, the United States of America is, above all else, an idea. Therefore, it most certainly does not exist in the minds of establishment Republicans and elitist Democrats who are now running Washington, D.C.; and it no longer exists in the minds of those in the leftist media and educational establishment. America, however, is alive and well in the minds of Tea Party members and all those who are aligned with this movement.

 

Therefore, if members from these patriotically-minded groups can replace the current leadership in Washington, D.C., the America of our forefathers, along with the rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, can most certainly be restored. If, like Patrick Henry, enough Americans emphatically state, “Give me liberty, or give me death,” we cannot, and we will not, fail!

Gun Control & Active Shooter SOLUTIONS

Gun Control means only criminals will have guns!

Gun Control and Active Shooter Incidents

With everything being discussed in private and public meetings, as well as in and around Congress, regarding active shooter incidents and gun control, here is a summary of the results. There is a 100% certainty that any conclusion, as a result of these meetings and discussions, could not possibly have saved any lives in the event that happened in Florida or any past events or, more importantly, any potential future events.

No matter what conclusions are drawn about gun control, there is a 100% guarantee that it will have nothing to do with preventing an active shooter incident. Any form of gun control will only cost free, honest, law-abiding American citizens freedom and liberty to own firearms and to defend and protect themselves and their families.

A real-world analysis of what to do begins and ends with the first person on the scene, such as a trained teacher with a weapon, a resource officer, or the first officer to arrive on the scene. The first goal to saving lives must be the speed at which the first responder goes through the door where the active shooter is conducting the heinous deed of killing innocent children.

Do NOT conduct a threat analysis. Do NOT try to establish communication with Command and Control, or any of the other tactical policies and procedures that one would normally think applicable in such a scenario. The first responder must, as fast as possible, go through the door, weapon drawn, and immediately redirect fire from the innocent children towards himself or herself.

 At this point, the first responder must have received at least minimal training in his actions once he has presented himself to the shooter. Training is not to facilitate the psychoanalysis of how to manipulate the shooter, or even to tend to the wounded.

Training must be to teach the first responder, once the fire is diverted from the shooter, to return fire at the assailant with minimal collateral damage from wounding or killing innocent children, if at all possible. With diversion of fire from the children, the best result will be the shooter hit, taken down, and out of action. Secondarily would be that the shooter is occupied until back-up arrives to eliminate the assailant effectively.

 Additional training for on-scene first responders should include pressure-sensitive, virtual reality training. As nearly as possible, training should approximate real-life pressures involved in an actual shootout.

Pressure involved in such a situation is unique and has actually been experienced by very few. The pressure at the scene during such an event is a nightmarish, colossal, mind-blowing experience, unlike anything that any training program can actually prepare someone to face.

However, all potential first responders should have some sample of the weight and dimensions of the fear, confusion and panic that will happen in the real event. This training, hopefully, can prevent the worst mistake that can happen—which is for the first responder to freeze or balk once he or she has penetrated the door.

It is our sincere wish that, through the power of his office as President of the United States as well as the platform availed to his office, President Trump stop all national discussion and debate by politicians, academians, and issue-oriented activist organizations.

While they claim to address the issue of how to protect and save the lives of this nation’s greatest assets, they are, in fact, putting our children at risk of greater harm in gun-free zones and with discussions of gun control.

UNDER ATTACK – CHAPTER TWO

The United States Congress:

What Value Does It Actually Have Today?

Who Changed Its Role As a Co-Equal Branch of Government?

When our forefathers set up our form of government, they created three separate, co-equal branches to construct a system of checks and balances. This three-part governmental system was designed to prevent the concentration of power in a single individual or a single group.

Our forefathers had lived under the despotism of King George III of Great Britain. Because they had personally experienced the tyranny of concentrated governmental power, they concluded that a divided form of government was essential for establishing and maintaining a nation where individual liberty could flourish. When they created our government, they did not necessarily know what form of government was unquestionably right; but they most definitely knew what form of government was unquestionably wrong.

Obama and others have complained about a “do nothing” Congress, or an “obstructionist” Congress; but there are times when we want a “do nothing” Congress—when it is better to do nothing than to pass unconstitutional legislation that diminishes personal liberty. On the other hand, we don’t want a “do nothing” Congress when the president or the U.S. Supreme Court oversteps constitutional authority.

When the clearly defined separation of powers is violated, then we want an “obstructionist” Congress. We want Congress to obstruct all efforts by the president or the U.S. Supreme Court to exceed their constitutional limitations and encroach upon the powers and authority granted only to the U.S. Congress.

Obama complained about a “do nothing” Congress, for example, regarding immigration reform. He told us emphatically that he had a pen and a phone, and he would use these tools fundamentally to transform America—without the benefit of legislation passed by Congress—if he deemed it necessary to advance his agenda.

The U.S. Constitution states that all legislative power rests with the U.S. Congress. The U.S. Supreme Court lacks the legal authority to legislate from the bench, and the U.S. President has absolutely no legal authority to legislate from the Oval Office. Nevertheless, Obama altered his signature piece of legislation, the so-called Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, several dozen times. Each of these changes was made in blatant violation of the U.S. Constitution’s clearly defined separation of powers. Only the U.S. Congress has the constitutional authority to create or alter legislation, including Obamacare.

For decades, the legislative branch has allowed the judicial branch to legislate from the bench and rob Congress of its constitutionally delegated powers. With Barack Obama following in the footsteps of the U.S. Supreme Court, Congress allowed itself to be placed on a dangerous path. With the development of an imperial presidency, the U.S. Congress may soon find itself demoted to a merely ceremonial role, perhaps something akin to that found in Czarist Russia or the old Soviet Union.

Now, more than ever, the constitutional roles of the three branches of government have been blurred, and the executive branch is being catapulted into a position of nearly unlimited power, the scope of which is seen only in dictatorships! We must return to our roots. We the people must return to the wisdom of our forefathers and demand that each of the three branches of the federal government operate within the limitations placed upon them by the U.S. Constitution.

To achieve this goal, we the people must elect representatives who respect the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. We can only achieve this goal by removing the current leaders of the Republican Party now running the U.S. Congress and replacing them with Tea Party members as well as those who are politically aligned with the Tea Party. That must be our goal; and that goal must be achieved. Failure is not an option; the stakes are much too high! As you soldier on, keep in mind what our Founding Fathers said.

Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States of America, wrote: “In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from the mischief by the chains of the Constitution” (Kentucky Resolutions, 1798). He tried to warn future generations that politicians cannot be trusted. Therefore, we must confine them to the limits placed upon them by the Constitution, or they may become no different from common criminals and rob us of everything we cherish.

John Adams, the second President, in a letter to his wife Abigail, stated: “Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present Generation to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make good use of it” (26 April 1777). Clearly, the freedom we Americans have traditionally enjoyed was earned by the blood, sweat, and tears of our forefathers and everyone who followed them in fighting to preserve our constitutional republic and our national sovereignty.

Have we made good use of that hard- fought freedom, or have we allowed ourselves to be deceived into surrendering our liberty in exchange for a false sense of security? As Benjamin Franklin correctly stated, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety” (Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759).

Again in a letter to his wife, John Adams wrote: “But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever” (1775). He was correct. History teaches us that once liberty is lost, it is never fully recovered.

We are truly at a crossroads in America today. We can either continue to surrender our liberty for false security, or we can follow in the footsteps of our forefathers. We can either fight for liberty, or surrender to tyranny! The real question is this: Do we have the boldness of Patrick Henry? He was a courageous Founding Father who boldly proclaimed, “Give me liberty, or give me death!” (Richmond, VA: Second Virginia Convention, March 20, 1775).

UNDER ATTACK – CHAPTER ONE cont’d

How do we explain a pattern of behavior by the Republican leadership that is clearly detrimental to the Republican Party and obviously beneficial to the Democratic Party? The explanation is simple: There is something more important to the Republican leadership than the welfare of the Republican Party, and that “something” is personal, political power. They are placing their own political welfare far above the welfare of both the Republican Party and the nation they claim to serve!

It is becoming clear that the hierarchy of the “Old Guard” of the Republican Party feels so threatened that they are willing to expose themselves as members of the political elite that is more closely aligned with the leadership of the Democratic Party than with the base of the Republican Party. It was their fear that the 2014 mid-term elections may have ushered in enough Tea Party candidates and Tea Party supported candidates that they may have achieved enough power actually to redefine the Republican Party.

Adopting the tactic of political polarization employed by the Democrat Bill Clinton, the Republican leadership has publicly targeted the Tea Party for destruction. By openly declaring war on the Tea Party, they have invited moderates and liberals from both major political parties to side with them in attacking and destroying Tea Party members and their supporters as well. Yes, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” (Indian philosopher, 4 BCE). This shrewd, political move exposed their true allegiance.

For many decades, we have been led to believe that there are two major political parties in Washington, D.C., one liberal and one conservative; whereas, in fact, behind the scenes, there is only one. Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Paul Ryan, and others, are in Washington for one purpose—to acquire and maintain personal power at the expense of the party and at the expense of the nation, if necessary. They show us the façade of two parties when necessary, but they also show us the reality of one party, when left with no choice.

This newly exposed allegiance among the elite of both major parties helps to explain a phenomenon that has been a complaint of conservatives for many years. When establishment Republicans battle Democrats, they always seem to fight with one hand tied behind their backs. In contrast, when they battle conservative Republicans, establishment Republicans fight with both hands—and with both feet!

If the current level of animosity directed toward the Tea Party had been directed toward Barack Obama prior to the 2008 presidential election, then Senator Obama would not have become President Obama. If the Republican leadership had exposed Barack Obama’s true, sordid, longstanding relationship with the likes of Bill Ayers and Bernadine (who led the domestic Communist terrorist organization known as the Weather Underground), we would be living in a very different America today. There would be no Obamacare train wreck and cover-up; no deadly Fast & Furious scandal and cover-up; no fatal Benghazi scandal and cover-up; no IRS scandal and cover-up; no White House-directed immigration reform; and no repeated embarrassments on the international scene.

Yes, the elite Republicans who want Ted Cruz out of the U.S. Senate are the same elite Republicans who helped Barack Obama plant his feet on top of the desk in the Oval Office. The elite of both parties are on the same team; thus, in reality, there is only one party. This is what is happening in Washington, D.C., today. This is how it has changed and why it has changed. In effect, we the people are now governed by a single band of elitists in pursuit of absolute, unchallengeable power.

For the first time in our history, our very form of government is changing right before our eyes. The Democrat Barack Obama was not the only politician in Washington who wanted, fundamentally, to transform America. Oftentimes, he did it with the help of the Republican leadership! Why did the leadership of the Republican Party allow Obama repeatedly to bypass Congress and legislate from the Oval Office?

If the Republican Party were truly an opposition party, there would have been real opposition to Obama’s repeated lawlessness in sidestepping Congress. Instead of opposition, the Republican leadership routinely offered false hope to voters who wanted to see a genuine return to honest, lawful, constitutional government at the federal level.

Sadly, President Abraham Lincoln’s government of the people, by the people, and for the people, has been essentially malformed into government of the elite, by the elite, and for the elite. Time is short; but fortunately, it is not yet too late. The Tea Party must not only survive this onslaught wrought by the Republican leadership and its Democratic allies; but it must also rise up and outsmart, outmaneuver, and defeat this elitist group. That, my fellow patriots, is the purpose of this handbook.

 

UNDER ATTACK – CHAPTER ONE

What Is Actually Happening In Washington, How it Has Changed, And Why.

For years, in the political world, it was believed that, in order to get elected, candidates must offend the least number of people. It was not how many people you pleased; but, instead, victory went to the least offensive candidate. However, a new political tactic was used by the Clintons in Arkansas, and it has now permeated Washington, D.C.

This new political tactic is known as polarization. Under polarization, the candidate selects a group to become a political target. The politically targeted group is repeatedly attacked to engender anger among the group members. However, unknown to the uninitiated, the primary purpose of the attack is not to anger the target, but to secure the support of the target’s political enemies. In brief, the candidate attacks the target so the enemies of the target become the allies and political supporters of the candidate.

In other words, the tactic of offending the least number of people has been replaced with the tactic of deliberately offending a strategically targeted group of individuals. Consequently, the targeted group and their political opponents become polarized, thus justifying the term “polarization.”

I have learned over the years that you can uncover the agenda of a given politician or political group simply by observing patterns in their behavior. Their behavioral patterns offer clues to their final goal. However, what is confusing, at least on its surface, is the pattern of behavior by the Republican establishment to “crush” the Tea Party and the moral Christian majority that has been a consistently loyal constituency.

Those who follow politics have observed this baffling phenomenon within the leadership of the Republican Party. Two prominent Republicans, U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and former U.S. Representative Steve LaTourette of Ohio, openly declared their intent to raise millions of dollars for the sole purpose of destroying the Tea Party, despite the fact that members of the Tea Party have been an integral part of the Republican base.

In fact, it was instrumental in giving the Republicans control of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2010 mid-term elections. In addition, it is a powerful political force that again helped Republicans gain control of the U. S. Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections.

UNDER ATTACK – Introduction cont’d

I recognize and thoroughly understand the plight facing you and your fellow Tea Party warriors, as well as that of all moral, conservative, Christian soldiers. I understand your loss of hope and sense of frustration with those in power within the Republican Party; for I was in a similar position back in the 1990’s when the personal war between Bill Clinton and me began. At that point, I found myself aligned with what was known as the Christian Moral Majority as well as with those who pioneered conservative talk radio.

Then, as now, I was disappointed to learn that, at almost every turn, the Republican leadership was uninterested in supporting my efforts to combat the Democratic Party’s leftist political machinery. After repeated frustration with their lack of support, I concluded that, in effect, we the people were being governed by only one party, and the two-party system was merely a mirage.

Therefore, embrace the ideas outlined in this handbook, and use the tools that were developed to pave the way for the impeachment of the most powerful person in the world at that time—Bill Clinton, President of the United States. I intend to do my part to save my country; and I will also do everything in my power to reinstate God to his rightful place in our government. To accomplish this, I need an army: And you are it!

As you finish this introduction and begin reading Chapter One, keep in mind the following quote by the man who would become the first President of the United States and “Father of our Nation:”

The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live, and act, as becomes a Christian Soldier, defending the dearest Rights and Liberties of his country.

(General George Washington, in a letter to the Continental Army, July 9, 1776)

UNDER ATTACK – Introduction

Those of us who are 50 years of age and older have seen changes in our lives that are major and frequent. Every day we have seen an increasing loss of liberty and we are repeatedly forced to endure more intrusions into our personal lives.

This handbook is designed to let you know that you are not alone in recognizing the numerous violations of our personal liberty by those in positions of power. It is also my sincere desire to arm you with some simple tools that you must use and share with others. By understanding and employing these simple tools, together we can stop and reverse the systematic destruction of our country from within—before it is too late!

As we cover what is happening in Washington, D.C., today, I will explain how both major parties have declared open warfare against the Tea Party, including warfare against the remnants of what was Jerry Falwell’s Moral Majority and patriots who support the Constitution. The leaders of both major parties understand that it was Jerry Falwell’s morally-based group of committed, conservative Christians who successfully challenged the liberal movement of that day and swept Ronald Reagan into office. And it was the Reagan Revolution of the 1980’s that gave us hope that we could stop and reverse the liberal shift that had taken place within the federal government.

Today, that level of hope no longer exists. Today, true conservatives are lost. We have seen how the leadership of the Republican Party in Washington has abandoned the ideals of the Reagan Revolution and has merged with the leftist leadership of the Democratic Party. Together, they control most of the political agenda in Washington, D.C. Collectively, they are waging open warfare against true conservatives, the Tea Party and any remnants of the Moral Majority.

Presently, those of you in the Tea Party find yourselves virtually alone in pursuit of your goals. You recognize that you are receiving no real support from the leadership of the Republican Party at the federal level. Instead of finding support from a political party that traditionally claimed to be of like mind, you now find that the Republican leadership has publicly announced their intent to “crush” you and your fellow Tea Party members, despite having historically been valued as a vital and significant part of the conservative base of the Republican Party.
