This announcement was passed on to me and I wanted to share it with you so you could join in the call and the fight against regulation of the internet.

Scott

Friends,

As you you are aware, there is also a potential power grab going on by the administration and the FCC where they are trying to regulate and control the internet, even going so far as giving the President access to an internet kill switch.

Considering that this movement was birthed from Twitter and relies upon the internet for communication more than any other resource, we cannot allow the Obama administration and the FCC to have this power.  We can stop this power grab and tonight, Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (TN) and Seton Motley of Less Government are going to tell us how we can help.

This is an issue that we cannot allow to be pushed under the rug or be buried in all of the news about the budget crisis.  This issue is critical to this movement!  Especially after what has recently happened in Egypt and also Iran not too long ago.  If the left or anyone else wants to shutdown the tea party movement, this is how they will do this.

Please share this email with your leadership teams and group members.  We need as many people on this call to hear Congresswoman Blackburn explain how we can help her fight this regulation by the FCC.

Date: Tonight, March 8th
Time: 8:30 pm Eastern
Conference Dial In Number: 712.432.3100

A group of Patriots have recently been working on educating the public on some legislation, KORUS, the Korean Trade Deal.

There are some major concerns with this legislation:

1.   Undermines U.S. sovereignty
2.   Violates U.S. Constitution by circumventing Congressional authority regarding appropriation of U.S. tax dollars.

3.   State legislators oppose it because it undermines State’s sovereignty.

4.   Negotiated with expedited Executive authority & Congress is banned from amending or fully debating it.

5.   Kills almost 160,000 U.S. jobs & encourages offshoring by multi-national corporations.

6.   Favors powerful multi-national corporations over U.S. small business even when bidding for government contracts.

7.   Not real “free trade” – benefits Korea much more than U.S. & increases U.S. trade deficit by $16.7 billion.

8.   Allows unsafe food products into U.S. without inspection

9.   Benefits NORTH Korea & strengthens Chinese leverage against us.

10. Immigration – throws open US doors to Korea

This legislation is coming up for a vote in the near future. 
  A letter is going to be sent to the Republican Freshman Class asking them to vote no on this legislation.
If you have further questions or concerns please let me know. If you feel this is something that your organization would like to sign on to email Kathryn Serkes at kaserkes@att.net or go to www.takebackwashington.org  .

We all have so much going on right now, and we have a great deal to work on in protecting our country. This legislation has some real concerns. For more information about this subject you can click here

UPDATE:  Huge thanks to one of our newest contributors Joel Wood for getting a translation and insight on this. 

Here is what Joel, who is former Marine Recon and did two tours in Iraq sent me based on his sources: 

"Right on cue, my second source interpreted it as "Go/leave Walker" which by itself makes sense and should not be surprising but, the language and phraseology is the same as has been used with protests in Egypt/Libya with Mubarak/Gaddafi et alia, which he found "interesting.""

 

Another friend Melissa Ortiz, who spent time living in Israel ask her friends for input on it and got this response:

"According to my lifelong friend, Grace Hermiz, it means "move on, you trickster". She didn't elaborate, but I can tell you from living in that part of the world that it is a slap in the face similar to having a shoe thrown at you."


Perhaps Paul Ryan was more correct than he knew when he said "Cairo has come to Madison."  As my previous post explained, there are many important congruences beween Marxists and Islamists and we must be vigilant when we see examples, of this phenomon whether it is a Code Pink sign written in English in Cairo held by a American woman, or a "Leave Walker" sign written in Arabic held my a Muslim man in Madison. This is not a coincidence.  As protests spread to other states, watch for similar signs in other state capitals.

Original Post:

 

These two images were taken tonight from AC360's B-Roll of the Wisconsin Pro-Union Protests in Madison. This went by very quickly, and was not mentioned at all on air but I happened to notice it.  I ran it back, stopped it and took these images.  I normally don't watch CNN so this is quite the happenstance. 

The guy in this image is holding a sign in Arabic in the middle of sea of English protest signs.  He is clearly turning toward the camera to make sure his sign is seen, but unlike the others he makes sure, that the sign hides his face so he is not recognized. 

 

I am working on getting a translation of the text, but I am willing to bet it is not about union benefits or collective bargining. 

 

If you can help with the translation, please let me know.  When I get one, I will update this entry.

Many when watching their televisions might wonder why self professed marxists and islamists would be working together in the middle east right now.  The answer is Postmodernism and the ideas it has once more brought to prominence.  I say once more, because the origin of Postmodern thought has its roots in the Medieval.  It is my hope that by the end of this blog piece you should understand why this is so, and the implicatons that this has for our country and world. 

 

Often shortened in non-academic circles to "moral relivatism"  or the everpresent call for "tolerence" or "political correctness" in our society, Postmodern thought has vast implications and in many important ways is not a progressing past modernity, but a return to that which came before, the medieval.  Consider two related topics, Power and Sovergnity. During the Medieval period a political Kingdom was determined by the area over which a certian individual, the monarch, or Soverign, could assert his Power.  The borders of this realm were changing and often disputed.  If a King died and one came to power who was less able to exert thier authority, they could be overrun, and portions of their Kingdom could be lost.  In absolute monarchies, the King was the State, and the Law.  There were also groups that had immense power but no soverignty, such as the  Cathoic Clergy, Templars, Jesuits, Guilds etc.  The tranistion from he medieval to the moden has been one in which all power which was held in one individual, the Soverign, became distributed to the people.  This is the tranistion from subject to citizen, and our Revolution was the first time in history that a free people broke with their colonial power and established a Nation State.  The rise of the soverign individual, and the Nation State are two of two of the hallmarks of modernity. This implies a rule of Law not of Men, and a community of nations which recognize each others borders and territorital integrity. 

 

Postmodern thought developed as a way of pushing back against many of the pilliars on which modernity was based.  In some ways it was beneficial, as it has allowed for the development of a whole range of areas of study.  In the langauge of academia the question is one of privledge.  If Man is privledged we should study Women, if the USA is privledged we should other countries, if Christianity is privledged, we should study Islam.  Sound familiar? Barack Obama is our first Post-Modern Presedent. 


"But wait" you say, "I thought he was a Marxist?" Well he is, of sorts, he is a Neo-Marxist.  A Neo-Marxist, mixes Postmodern and Marxist thought.  Many die hard Marxists hate postmodern thought because there is no real political agency possible within it, because nothing is allowed to be privledged over anything else.  A true Marxist is not a relitavist, they believe in one true goal, a utopian workers state. However, the thing that is most under attack in postmodernism is the individual itself, the hallmark of modernity.  If you decenter the individual, then what gets privledged is the group or collective, and here you can see why it can be mixed with great effectiveness with Marxism.  Neo-Marxists use this as a form of intellectual jijitsu to throw off the power of those they oppose and then advocate for thier Marxist postitions in the process. 

 

So Modernity developed out of a desire to push back against Medivalism and Postmodernism developed out of a desire to push back against Modernity.  As a result Postmodernism and Medievalism share MANY of the same characterics of belief, and they should, because many of the first Postmodern theorists, were trained as Medival scholars.  This is why there is a link between, Neo-Marxists and Islamists whom we could call Neo-Medieval.  They both believe in similar things, although one wants a secular socialistic state and the other wants a theocratic authoritarian regime.  They both use the UN to get around borders and soverignity of the nation state and they see the individual as part of a collective, not soverign unto themselves.  We see the rise of NGOs and Orginizations with immense Power, but not Soverignity such as The Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Quaeda, Hezbollah and Hammas, the  the UN, IAEA, World Bank, The Fed, Mexican Drug Cartels.  All these groups have NO Sovergnity, but have immense power. There is even an entire school of internalnational relations theory called Neo-Medivalism that influenced the way the Bush Administraton dealt with enemy combatants and persued the War on Terror.

 

This is why we need to worry about the interaction of the Marxists and the Islamists.  Right now both are using the same jujitsu move to get one over on those that oppose them.  Once they get done fighting their common enemy then they will turn on each other, and a that point I fear the Medieval beats the Modern every time. We must be viligant to see how these synergies are occuring understand why they are so powerful.  It goes far beyond "tolerance" or "moral relavitism" we are giving up on modernity itself, the sovergnity of the individual, and returning ourselves to a medieval mindset.  It is no wonder then that we feel like we need to assert the same rights our Founders did, as we are fighting against the same ideology as they did, only in a different guise. 

If you feel the threat you are facing is exestiential, you are right, it is. Failure is not an option.  I know we will prevail, if we understand how we are being attacked and why.
