Saving Our Republic

I have been to the jungles so thick with hard woods and vines our machetes became nicked from trying to cut it through. Tolerating swarms of mosquitoes, wading through putrid swamp waters as poisonous snakes swam by. Sleeping in humid jungle so thick that even in daylight the light was colored dark green; the night so dark and ominous with every creature found in nightmares coming out to feed. The humidity like a smothering blanket that quickly turned steel to rust.

Silence of the Conservative Lambs

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Wow! I experienced it first hand. I wrote an article defending the biblical take on an issue. The mainstream media misquoted me – took my words out of context to portray me as someone I am not – a rabid hater. Recklessly, without reading my original article to learn what I actually said, several news sources re-printed a reporter's distortion of my article.

Folks, I have no problem standing up for what I believe or even being hated for it. But, the media had thousands hating me for something I never said. Associates became nervous about being associated with me. Public figures began denouncing me. It was a very stressful situation. My stress did not come from the Left hating me. I was stressed over how the Left's lies about me negatively affected the lives of others in my life.

Here is the scariest effect of the media's gang character assassination. For about thirty seconds, I actually thought about framing my words to be more politically-correct. I thought perhaps it would be wise to frame my words in such a way that the media could not distort and use them against me. You know, the old you can catch more flies with honey thing. Well, the problem with that strategy is that the media seeks to destroy conservatives, especially black conservatives such as myself. Therefore, they will spin any and everything I say into a negative to scare me into shutting up.

Whenever conservatives simply speak the truth, they are branded extremist by the mainstream media and advised by consultants to “moderate their tone”.  Meanwhile, liberals/Democrats make the most outrageous over the top statements without a peep of criticism from the mainstream media or their party. Democrat VP Biden said, “Republicans want y'all back (blacks) in chains”. Democrat Rep. Andre Carson said the Tea Party movement would “love” to see black Americans “hang from a tree”. 

Democrat Alan Grayson said, “Republicans want you to die quickly”.
Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters said, “The tea party can go straight to hell.” Think about that folks. Millions of Americans who oppose Obama ignoring the Constitution and cramming his socialist/progressive agenda down their throat have been told by a Democrat to go to hell.

Has anyone in the media accused Democrats of being mean-spirited? Has any Democrat denounced a fellow Democrat's outrageous statements? No.

But Conservatives/Republicans wrestle with each other to be first at the microphone to denounce the slightest faux pas by someone on our side. They kick fellow Conservatives/Republicans to the curb saying, How could so and so have said something so stupid? They're done!

I know what many of you are saying, Lloyd grow up! Character assassination is a mainstay of politics, particularly Democrat politics. I realize that, but this was the first time the full assault wrath of the MSM slapped me in the face. My “right” cheek is still bruised. I now understand why so many people back away from their words and succumb to pressures to embrace the media's consensus on issues.

We see it all the time. A pundit makes a statement opposite of the MSM's consensus. The MSM gang assaults the pundit. Then, the pundit dials-back their original comments.

The Left uses a three step technique to silence opposition and shame you into embracing their agenda. I learned about this technique via an article by the late Fred Hutchison.

As an example, let's use the issue of gun control.

Step One: Desensitization. The Left pounds away 24/7 on the news, movies and etc that Second Amendment advocates and gun owners are irresponsible rednecks who do not care about children being murdered. This is to “desensitize” citizens to the idea of being stripped of their Constitutional right to bear arms.

Step Two: Jamming. Jamming means to “shame” gun owners into silence regarding their desire to own firearms and their opposition to being disarmed. Jamming is based on the idea that most humans feel shame when they believe they are not thinking, feeling or acting like the masses.

Step Three: Conversion. Conversion is when the public has become receptive to the idea of government ignoring the Second Amendment. The MSM portraying gun owners as cruel heartless idiots is a psychological attack in the form of propaganda designed to convert the emotions, minds and will of Americans to side with anti-gun activists. If done skillfully enough, anti-gun activists will be perceived as heroes.

Patriots, we can not allow the Left to bully us into becoming silenced Conservative lambs. On every issue, the Left/MSM sets the narrative; giving the issue a thumbs up or a thumbs down. Anyone daring to disagree with their consensus will be destroyed. Their bullying is working. More and more Americans are afraid to speak their minds.

Special thanks to courageous advocates for truth, justice and the American Way such as Pamela Geller, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck to name a few. Trust me folks when I say it ain't easy. These patriots, as I, are emboldened and driven by our love for the greatest nation on the planet.

Losing America is not an option. Therefore, we will not become silenced conservative lambs. Please join me in saying, neither will you!

Conservatism Lost a Battle, But Not the War!

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Dear Patriots. We lost! Obama-supporter Gabriel Gomez beat Conservative Republican Michael Sullivan in the Massachusetts primary. Gomez will be the Republican candidate in the special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry.

Without repeating all of Gomez's two-faced actions again, I will inform you that Gomez endorsed Obama for president, contributed to his campaign and vowed to support Obama's agenda on a host of issues. Yes, you heard me correctly; and this guy claims to be a Republican. Michael Sullivan was the real-deal character-driven constitutional Conservative in the race. But as I stated, Sullivan lost.

Our team, Conservative Campaign Committee, is heartbroken. Folks, in all candor, we worked our butts off, giving it our all. Along the way we endured and survived vicious attempts to destroy our group by Sullivan's opponents in the race, who are determined to push conservatives out of their "big tent."

Legally barred from communicating with the Sullivan campaign, CCC launched an independent expenditure campaign in support of Sullivan. We produced and aired radio ads and a TV ad supporting Sullivan.

We held an historic 8 hour internet telethon that urged voters to support and help raise money to fund our pro-Sullivan TV and radio ad campaign. We also wrote countless OpEds and sent out millions of emails urging support for Sullivan.

Folks, please do not think I am whining, I am simply sharing the facts with you. We spent numerous nights with little sleep, doing everything we could to help Sullivan win. But, in the end, it came down to money. Gomez out spent us 9 to 1. Gomez had a war-chest of over $1,000,000.

Talk about adding insult to injury, I screamed at the TV watching a Gomez TV ad in which he misrepresented himself as a Ronald Reagan style Republican. In reality, Gomez is an Obama sycophant. It is the kind of repulsive sickening deceit permeating politics today.

All we voters want are candidates who say what they mean and mean what they say. Michael Sullivan is such a man. Sadly, we could not compete with the Gomez special interest money machine funding his campaign. Special interest gave Gomez hundreds of thousands of dollars for the primary.

Conservative Campaign Committee is not a super PAC. We function via funding from you – We The People. The largest contribution we can legally accept from an individual is $5,000. We cannot accept corporate contributions.

As I stated, we did an 8-hour internet telethon for Michael Sullivan. It was truly heartwarming that we received donations from practically every state in the union. It felt like a wonderful national family affair with people sharing the broadcast with their friends, family members, Young Republican groups and more. Donations ranged from $2 to $1000 – everyone pitching-in, giving whatever they could.

I am Chairman of CCC. I told my team to be at peace. We did our part. We did everything in our power to secure a Sullivan victory, including organizing an army of volunteers to make thousands of phone calls for Sullivan in the final days of the campaign - right up until the polls closed. Everything else is in God's hands.

Brother and sister patriots, we really wanted to win this one for you. A Conservative Republican winning in Massachusetts would have been a huge desperately needed shot-in-the-arm for the Conservative Movement.

But now is not the time to give up. Rather, as Ronald Reagan taught us, it truly is always darkest before the dawn, and yesterday teaches us that what we must do is redouble our efforts, work even harder, smarter and with greater determination. For this nation needs a restoration of constitutional conservative principles now more than ever. Take a moment to hear Reagan's words - for they ring as true today as they did so many years ago when he spoke them at a time where hope and optimism were in short supply, and patriots desperately needed a shot in the arm: 

Conservative Campaign Committee is already planning our next campaign in the battle to restore liberty and freedom; end Obama's tyranny and turn America back to the vision of our Founding Fathers. Thus, we remain on the front line – fighting in the trenches for you. God bless.

Restoring America: One Political Race, One Conservative Candidate at a Time.

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American

Upon our brief return to our home in Florida, Sammy, our greyhound gave me a ho-hum look and retired to his doggie-bed; not the excited welcome home I expected after being away for over a month. I fear the house-sitter has stolen the affection of my dog.

Mary and I have been in Massachusetts feverishly working to make Conservative Michael Sullivan the Republican nominee in the Massachusetts special election to fill the U.S.

Senate seat vacated by John Kerry.

Many of you may wonder why my Conservative Campaign Committee has been working so diligently on the Massachusetts Senate race. What makes flipping the Massachusetts traditionally Democrat seat to a Republican seat of such national importance? Well, it could start a ripple effect in the political landscape.

Folks, in case you have not noticed, we are losing America to the socialists/progressives. Obama is like a political Dr. Frankenstein who has created his lifelong dream, a socialist/progressive monster. With his eyes bulging with excitement, Obama yells with elation, It's alive! It's alive!

Facing little to no opposition from terrified Republicans, Obama's socialist/progressive monster is wrecking havoc making all of the Left's cultural and societal dreams come true; the redefinition of marriage, government control of your children, suppression of Christianity, disarming the American people, open borders and amnesty for illegals, a majority of the population on government assistance and most devastating of all, government having total control of our behavior – deciding who lives and who dies via Obamacare.

For those of you who think I am crazy or exaggerating, I offer a few current events.

Attorney General Eric Holder declared, “amnesty is a civil right”. Holder promises government will work to protect illegal aliens.

We have been told 11 million – but the reality is the new immigration bill will bring in 33 million new immigrants over the next 10 years. Rest assured, 25 million will vote Democrat for the freebies and have no desire to assimilate; thus, marking the end of the Republican Party.

In keeping with the Obama administration’s continuing assault on business, Harry Reid is consumed with rushing through an internet sales tax.

Did you ever believe a day would come in America when government would force your daughter to indulge in lesbianism? A government run school curriculum forces middle school girls to stand in front of the class and kiss pretending they are lesbians.

Exposed during the Dr Gosnell trial is the practice of “snipping” which is sticking scissors into the back of the baby's neck and cutting the spinal cord. Snipping is done to kill those annoying babies with such a will to live that they survive the abortion undermining the abortionist. The shocking and horrific abuses of the poor and minority women revealed in the Dr Gosnell trial has drawn not one word of criticism from Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile, Obama is the first sitting U.S. president to address/speak at a gala for Planned Parenthood which is essentially an abortion factory – especially of minority babies. Obama went as far as to demonize anyone opposing abortion. Planned Parenthood aborts 4000 babies a day folks – 4000 babies a day.

We, the Tea Party, and other patriots who love America are the perceived peasants who have risen up with pitchforks to challenge the out-of-control beast created by Obama. But what is our game plan – our strategy for victory? Simple: Install Conservatives in as many key positions as possible. This strategy along with prayer for divine help and guidance is the only way to restore our great country to the vision of our Founding Fathers. We restore America one race – installing one conservative candidate at a time.

So, this is why Mary and I have been away from our Florida home living in Massachusetts for the last month or so – abandoning my dog Sammy and her cat, Marilyn.

Filling Kerry's seat in the Senate with a Conservative Republican will give majority leader Harry Reid one less rubber-stamped vote. A Conservative in Kerry's seat would also be another thorn in Obama's side joining fellow constitutionalists Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.

If the Republicans can find the courage to stand on principles and do well in the 2014 midterm elections, we could possibly, dare I say it, win the Senate. Then, we can impersonate Donald Trump and say, “Harry Reid, you're fired!”

This is why the Senate race in Massachusetts is so much bigger than just Massachusetts. Patriots, please contact your Massachusetts family, friends and associates and encourage them to vote for the conservative Republican choice, Michael Sullivan for U.S. Senate, in the Tuesday, April 30th primary.

Also, can anyone advise how I can rekindle Sammy, my greyhound dog's loyalty and affection?

Will The Bombing Victims Take a Back Seat?

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Talk about Yogi Berra's famous line, “It's deja vu all over again”, have you noticed the similarity in how the mainstream media is portraying suspected marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and the way they portrayed Trayvon Martin? In
both cases, the media blasted a much younger angelic photo of each young man, in essence, misrepresenting who they were at the times of their suspected crimes.

Dzhokhar received his Miranda warning and lawyered up with appointed federal public defenders. Liberals are all over the airways and the internet working to soften Dzhokhar's image,
calling him a kid and a confused victim of his older brother and an unfriendly America. At the earliest, Dzhokhar's trial will be a year from now.

My concern is that by the time Dzhokhar goes on trial, the mainstream media/the Left will have made his trial all about America's Islamophobia, racism and policies which have caused the world to hate us – forgetting about justice for those who lost life and limb because of the bombing.

Remember what happened in the OJ trial? OJ's attorneys, praised by the Left, masterfully changed the subject of his trial from being about a man almost beheading his wife and the mother of his children to being about America's history of racism against blacks. Remarkably, sympathy and justice for Nicole Brown Simpson somehow got lost in the shuffle of left-wing political narrative.

I foresee a strong possibility of a similar outrageous tragic scenario happening to the victims of suspected terrorist Dzhokhar; murdered were 8 year old Martin Richards, Krystle Marie Campbell – 29, Lu Lingzi – 23 and 27 year old Officer Sean Collier who was shot in the head execution-style while sitting in his patrol car. Fourteen people lost all or part of a limb. Two hundred and fifty people were injured.

As I stated, the mainstream media are well on their way instilling the narrative that we must understand and sympathize with the 19-year-old suspected terrorist. We must not allow the victims of the Boston bombing to be relegated to background players, cast as mere collateral damage of the Left's golden opportunity to sell their narrative that America is always the “bad guy”at fault – the greatest source of evil in the world.

But the American people can ultimately be the fly in the Left's ointment; demanding justice and giving voice to the victims. For if we are to ensure that tragedies like this are not repeated we as a society must make clear that we will hold perpetrators of such heinous acts accountable.

On April 30th, voters will have the opportunity to fill John Kerry's vacated U.S. Senate seat (traditionally held by Democrats who have a history of trying to appease the forces of evil) with a strong law-and-order Conservative Republican who knows how to deal with terrorists, conservative Republican Michael Sullivan.

Sullivan is a former U.S. Attorney who took a tough stance prosecuting terrorists including the infamous shoe-bomber, Richard Reid. Sullivan has been the Fox News channel's go-to-guy for how best to deal with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, because he's shown how justice can and should ultimately prevail for the people of a free society.

Serious about dealing with our enemies, Michael Sullivan wants to revoke Dzhokar Tsarnaev's September 11, 2012 citizenship.

“After making false statements under oath and committing these acts of terror against our nation and its citizens, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has renounced any alleged loyalty to our country and has forfeited the gift of U.S. citizenship our great nation has bestowed upon him,” Sullivan continued. “It should be revoked as quickly as the law allows.”

That's what I am talking about folks; enough with playing games and pandering to evil enemies who seek to callously maim and kill innocent Americans.

National security and punishing enemy combatants are more reasons why Michael Sullivan must win the April 30th primary to be the Republican nominee in the June special election in Massachusetts to fill Kerry's vacated U.S. Senate seat.

A year or more from now when Dzhokhar goes on trial, emotions will have cooled, the shock, pain and outrage will have lessened – memories and tributes to the victims will have faded. By then, much of the mainstream media will have transformed Dzhokhar into the poster boy for everything that the Left believes is wrong with America.

Will the victims of the Boston bombing suffer the same lack of justice as murdered Nicole Brown Simpson; reduced to B-roll footage for the spectacle of Dzhokhar's trial in which the Left drives home their narrative that America sucks? Will there be someone unswayed by the Left's narrative who will be the victim's hero – remembering and seeking justice for murdered Americans and those whose lives were devastatingly changed forever due to the cruelty of suspected bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev?

Michael Sullivan has proven himself up for the challenge – an advocate for the bombing victims as well as being strongly committed to protecting all Americans in our increasingly dangerous world. America needs U.S. Senator Micheal Sullivan.

Boston Bombing: Americans Rise to the Occasion

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Dear Fellow Americans,

Like you, I am saddened and angry at the evil terrorist who bombed the Boston Marathon. I am also angered by the Democrats' and their sycophant media hack's mad dash to blame Republicans.
Shamelessly, the Democrats despicably politicize any and everything.

Democrats have absurdly linked the Boston bombing to the Sequester. 

The dirty little secret that the Democrats do not want you to know and the mainstream media will not report is that Obama slashed the budget for domestic bombing prevention by 45%.

The Left openly admits that they hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white right-wing American.

Rest assured, closed door dark room discussions are underway about how best to blame the Tea Party.

Remember, Obama's former Chief-of-Staff, Rahm Emanuel said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Americans who oppose Obama's socialist agenda and trampling of the Constitution have been a thorn in the Democrats and mainstream media's sides for years. What better way to destroy the Tea Party than to convince low-info Americans that the Tea Party is responsible for children losing life and limbs. While this strategy may sound a bit cynical, it is reasonable to reference Democrats' past behavior and Obama's former Chief-of-Staff, Rahm Emanuel's words, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”

Frustratingly, all speculation as to who is responsible for the bombing has been limited to foreign terrorists and right-wing extremists. Despite the history of domestic terrorism proving otherwise, not one time in the media coverage has it been suggested the bomber/bombers could be left-wing extremists.

But folks, having exposed the Left's desire to make the Tea Party and Republicans responsible, I wish to focus on the heroes – awesome Americans who stepped up to assist the wounded and save lives.

Mary and I have been on the road away from our home in Florida for several weeks, working to put Conservative Republican Michael Sullivan in the U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry in Massachusetts. We are still in a hotel room living out of suitcases. The stories of heroism and the pain and suffering of innocent children and families have touched us deeply.

I wrote, sang and recorded a song shortly after 9/11 titled, “United We Stand”. My inspiration came from the way our nation came together, though briefly, in unity, patriotism and prayer for our country.

We want to salute the heroes who displayed remarkable bravery and compassion after the bombing. Using my song, Mary got on her computer and put this humble tribute together honoring our heroes. We pray that it blesses your heart.

Telethon For Michael Sullivan To Bolster Conservative Ascendancy

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Brother and sister patriots, I speak to you as family because I believe if we are to effectively push back in opposition to Obama and company's all-out-assault on our freedoms, liberty and culture, we (who love America as founded) must stand together as family.

In a nut shell, Obama and Democrats/Progressives are out of control. On every issue from the environment to gun control they use the same tactic. Obama hits the airways and makes a totally mindless emotional pleas to low info voters. Arrogantly, Obama then expects to be given carte blanche to trample the Constitution at will.

Always having Obama, Democrats and progressives backs, the mainstream media faithfully provides cover for their blatant side stepping of the Constitution. The MSM brands Republicans and anyone who dares to stand up for common sense and the law as being racist, stupid and haters. It works every time. Republicans cave.

Sadly, only a few Republicans have the stones to stand up for common sense and the Constitution. Even the ever optimistic Rush Limbaugh said he is depressed over what is happening in our country.

While my hope for America is rooted in my faith and trust in God, I realize it is up to each of us to do our part. To restore our great nation, we must get rock solid conservatives in office– one candidate – one race at a time. This is why my Conservative Campaign Committee has produced TV and radio ads in support of “proven” and “tested” Conservative Michael Sullivan for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.

Sullivan's opponents in the primary, Gomez and Winslow, are prime examples of Obama/Democrat sycophant Republicans who are willing to sell their souls for a seat at the table. Electing either of them would further the decline of America as we know it.

Candidate Gabriel Gomez wrote a letter to Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick asking for a job – interim appointment as U.S. Senator. In Gomez's letter, he said he supports Obama's agenda.

Candidate Dan Winslow said, “Pro-life candidates deserve to lose”. Folks, 4000 babies a day are aborted in America. Michael Sullivan is pro-life.

Winslow routinely financially supports Democrats: $500 to Democrat Robert Travaglini's State Senate campaign – $300 to Democrats Steven Baddour and Joseph Wagner – $250 to Democrats Gerard Leone and John Rogers – $200 to Democrat Sonia Chang-Diaz – $500 to Democrat Martha Coakley.

With behavior uncharacteristic of Republicans and more in keeping with the No-Tactic-Is-Too-Low Democrat Play Book, Gomez and Winslow conjured up a weak tag-team attempt to smear Conservative Campaign Committee as a hate group. Think about that folks. CCC is committed to getting Conservatives/Republicans elected around the country. And yet, “Republicans”, Gomez and Winslow are selfishly trying to destroy us – both willing to bend the truth and undermine future conservative/Republican candidates to win at ANY cost. Character matters folks, it always does.

Patriots, we at CCC did not pull Michael Sullivan's name out of a hat. We researched the man and spoke with Massachusetts voters. Amazingly, the same words kept coming up in almost every conversation about Mike – “proven”, “tested” and “trustworthy”.

Beginning at Gillette as a stock clerk, Mike Sullivan worked his way up to U.S. Attorney prosecuting the infamous shoe-bomber.

A Massachusetts voter who has followed Mike Sullivan over the years said to me, “Mike has a way of always showing up and setting things right.”

Michael Sullivan is a great man – the kind of strong, no nonsense, character and principle driven conservative we need to send to Washington to assist in the process of restoring our nation back to the vision of our Founding Fathers.

Folks, the political tidal wave caused by replacing liberal Senator John Kerry with conservative Michael Sullivan in Massachusetts could cause a tsunami of change in the national political landscape. It will reveal to timid Republicans that a true conservative can win. Thus, this race is national!

Please tune in online to Conservative Campaign Committee and support our campaign to fill John Kerry's vacated Senate seat with conservative Republican Michael Sullivan in the upcoming Special Election.

Tune in for this 8-hour Telethon this Sunday, April 14th from 4:00 PM - 12:00 Midnight (Eastern) - 1:00 PM - 9:00 PM (Pacific)

You can contribute toward our goal now at Sullivan Telethon.

Michael Sullivan for U.S. Senate Massachusetts. We like and America needs Mike!

The Tea Party: Who Are They, Really?

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Barbara is white, sixty-something and writes Christian musicals. She told a mutual friend, “Lloyd is a good guy, but I disagree with his association with the Tea Party.” Shocked, our friend shared Barbara's concern with me. I thought, “Barbara, you ARE the Tea Party.”

My friend Barbara is representative of the mainstream media's despicable evil slander of millions of well informed, decent hardworking Americans who love their country and reject it being transformed into a socialist kingdom in which government controls every aspect of their lives.

Who are these Tea Party people, their profile? When I first began touring the country on Tea Party Express, the attendees were mostly middle-aged whites. Many, trying to be “good people”, voted for America's first black presidential candidate. But, as Obama began implementing his big government socialist agenda, they realized their error.

I was one of probably five blacks in America who did not vote for Obama. When Obama told Joe the Plumber he wanted to “spread the wealth around”, a little voice in my brain said, “Danger! Danger Will Robinson! This guy (Obama) is a socialist!”

At those first tea party rallies when the movement was new, many whites in attendance still felt extremely uncomfortable opposing Obama. Countless times I was told by patriots, fighting back their tears, that their opposition to Obama had nothing to do with his race and everything to do with his agenda. I knew they were sincere.

This is why the mainstream media's relentless slander of these good people, attempting to portray them as mobs of racist violent haters, so infuriated me.

Tea Party attendees are the salt of the earth Americans. They have jobs. They have businesses and families which they bring to the rallies. They love their country. They have kids in the U.S. Military. Many attend church. They do not hate minorities. They do not suppress women. As a matter of fact, many Tea Party group leaders and organizers are women. Tea Party folks want every American who is willing to work for it to achieve their American Dream. Pure and simple...end of subject.

My friend Barbara who fell for the MSM lie that the Tea Party is nothing more than a massive hate group would fit right in if she ever attended a Tea Party event.

When the Occupy Wall Street Movement emerged, once again the MSM slapped the Tea Party in the face by praising OWS as the morally superior Left's answer to the Tea Party. Well excuse me, but no one has been raped, robbed, beaten or arrested at a tea party; all of which are regular occurrences at OWS gatherings.

OWS dumped a bucket of feces in a bank lobby along with numerous incidents of destruction of property.  One point seven million tea party folks gathered in DC to protest Obamacare leaving the park cleaner than when they arrived.

The profile of blacks who attend Tea Party rallies. As I said, when the Tea Party movement first began, I was a rare black face in the crowds. Over the years, more blacks began showing up. Excited and curious, I would interview them,“What made you show up today?”

Interestingly, the blacks in attendance were either entrepreneurs/business people or they served in the U.S. Military and had witnessed the negative effects of socialism abroad.

Foolishly sacrificing principles to court misinformed voters, the GOP has joined the MSM's gang assault on the Tea Party. Their mantra is, “The Tea Party is extreme!”

I struggle to maintain my composure upon hearing low-info idiots parroting the MSM's claim that the Tea Party is extreme. Will someone please tell me what is “extreme” about expecting our government to function according to the U.S. Constitution? What is extreme about not sheepishly going along with government dismantling our God given freedoms and liberty?

Despite being badly bruised and abused from all sides, the Tea Party is the only hope for restoring America back to the vision of our Founding Fathers.

Who are these tea party guys, really?

I suspect millions of Americans who have never attended a Tea Party event love their country – still believe success is achieved via hard work rather than government redistribution – still believe marriage should remain between one man and one woman – believe government does not have authority to override the 2nd Amendment to disarm us or force us to fund behaviors which go against our religious convictions.

If you are one such American, the Tea Party is you.

Dear Patriots From Lloyd Marcus

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American 
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

I am in a hotel room in Boston. My team, Conservative Campaign Committee, is here filming a TV ad to help conservative candidate Michael Sullivan in Massachusetts.

I just returned from dinner. Checking my email and listening to a recap of the Rush Limbaugh radio show, I find myself fighting a deep sadness for my country. At every turn, it appears the Left is winning the battle for our culture, moving toward the end of America as we know it.

Consideration of God in cultural matters is deemed ignorant – laughable. Morality is now called intolerance. Remarkably, our kids are taught in elementary school that no sex is wrong and only sex which leads to pregnancy is unsafe. Sex Ed includes teaching kids to masturbate with mirrors to introduce them to sexuality. Government funded sexual indoctrination that no sex is wrong begins in kindergarten.

Far too many Christian churches have lost their salt and simply go along to get along, all in the name of love. Desperate and fearful after losing the election, too many Republicans are willing to sacrifice core values and principles in hope of winning votes.

Cultural and moral decline are running rampant. Where is the push back? Some say forget the culture and focus on economic issues only. The economy and the culture are linked.

My heart is heavy, but what can I do? Do I give up? God forbid.

The reality is the efforts of my team and all who love America are needed more than ever. Rather than allowing hopelessness to triumph, my resolve is strengthened to fight with every fiber of my being to restore my country by putting conservatives in office and saying no “loudly” to every vile left wing attack on our culture.

Folks, I love America. I really, really do.

An Easter Message

Yesterday was Good Friday, a very special day for Christianity, a prelude before Easter Day that commemorates the victory of Jesus Christ against death. It is a tradition for Christians to attend mass and churches to remember what the founder of Christianity represents and the covenant with God.
Adore God. Reverence and cherish your parents. Love your neighbor as yourself, and your country more than yourself. Be just. Be true. Murmur not at the ways of Providence.
Thomas Jefferson
ESJS_027Those who are not Christians use the day to gather with family for a traditional feast enjoying the unity of the family nucleus, an entity that has slowly disintegrated in the society of the United States.
In a speech given by Ronald Reagan in the following video, he stated:
I have said that we must be cautious claiming that God is on our side. I think the real question we must answer is: Are we on His side?

Real Bullies: The Homosexuality is Normal Movement

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Think of us as crew members on the star-ship Enterprise of the Star Trek TV show, boldly going where no one has gone before. Folks, this is what it feels like challenging the Homosexuality is Normal Movement. It is extremely dangerous.

Homosexual activists attempt to humiliate and politically destroy anyone who dares even criticize their agenda. Meanwhile, the MSM (mainstream media) casts us who believe marriage should remain between one man and one woman as the aggressors, hate-filled villains.

Have the Homosexuality is Normal Movement stolen our kids? Despicably, while we were not looking, homosexual activists sneaked their agenda in the back doors of our elementary schools indoctrinating our kids early.  Unquestionably, lack of access to your child for indoctrination contributes to the Left's hatred for home schools and their relentless attempts to close them down.

Here is another example of homosexual activists in-your-face aggressive indoctrination of our kids. A Massachusetts charter school, grades 7-12, will host a production of the play, “The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told”, a retelling of the biblical story of Genesis with gay characters. Keep in mind folks, America schools have a cow when a kid brings a Bible or wears a t-shirt with religious, patriotic or U.S. Military images. And yet, this school gleefully hosts a play which blasphemes Christianity while promoting homosexuality.

Our forty year old son and twenty year old granddaughter support homosexual marriage. Their attitude is what's the big deal, it is only fair that gays be allowed to marry. America's youths are parroting the liberal's argument that opposition to same sex marriage is discriminatory and bigoted. According to a Washington Post-ABC News poll, support for gay marriage is at 65 percent among those 18 to 29 years old. The gay marriage approval rating is probably even higher among high school kids.

A twenty-something year old Christian youth pastor picked me up from the airport in California. Justifying his support of same sex marriage, he said, “God does not care who we love.” Wow, I could hardly believe my ears. This young man who claimed to be a minister of God chose to ignore the Bible and spout the liberal pop-culture spin.

From cooking shows to home improvement and everything in between, it has become difficult to watch TV without the Homosexuality is Normal agenda being forced down your throat. If you do not believe these people are outrageously aggressive, listen to this. The Green Street United Methodist Church will not perform heterosexual marriages until gays can marry.

Folks, I have dear friends and beloved relatives who are homosexual. I am loving and kind to their mates. My 85 year old dad has been a Christian pastor over 50 years. Dad said he loves the homosexuals in his life, but they know were he stands on this topic which is the biblical view.
Dad's tolerance is not enough to please the aggressive Homosexuality is Normal Movement bullying America today. They seek to politically bend Dad's arm behind his back forcing him to declare homosexuality normal against his faith.

My point is homosexual activists are extremely aggressive while portraying themselves as innocent victims of an intolerant society. In reality, we who believe in traditional values are the ones being bullied. The MSM gang vilifies anyone who dares to stand up for traditional marriage. Come hell or high water, they are going to make us embrace homosexuality as being normal by severely punishing those who refuse to comply.

And will someone please tell me why homosexual activists are so hellbent on forcing Christian institutions to betray their faith by embracing the homosexual agenda? Homosexual activists have sued the Boy Scouts of America and launched a war on the Catholic Church.

No one is opposing homosexuals doing their own thing. Rather than aggressively trying to infiltrate the Boys Scouts and the Catholic Church, why not form their own Fabulous Scouts of America and the Church Of If It Feels Good Do It and leave Christian institutions another?

Christian institutions are simply saying you can not come into our house and force us to change the rules – especially when those rules come from God. And what is the MSM's response to Christian institutions defending their religious freedom? The MSM campaigns to brand the Boy Scouts of America and the Catholic Church intolerant haters. We are living in crazy insidious evil times folks.

The Homosexuality is Normal Movement takes no prisoners, not even new Pope Francis. They have already begun finding fault with him because Pope Francis is against gay marriage and gay adoption.
Question. Will homosexual activists get away with branding the Pope a hater?

The Homosexuality is Normal Movement is not passive well meaning victims simply seeking tolerance and their place in the sun. They are relentless, viscous and hell bent on forcing all of us, particularly

GOP Secret Weapon: What Have The Democrats Done For Blacks Lately?

The Red and the Black
Seeking black votes could be the GOP's secret weapon
By Deroy Murdock
National Review Online
March 25, 2013

‘What have the Democrats done for you lately?”

Republicans should start asking black Americans that question — early and often. Doing so could become the GOP’s secret weapon.

As Republicans regroup after presidential and Senate campaigns that they should have won easily last November, they should seek votes among the 41 million black Americans whom Democrats take for granted, and Republicans lately have written off. Here’s why engaging black voters could revitalize the GOP.

Republicans need not win the black vote, or even a third of it. Securing 15 percent of the black electorate severely erodes the stalwart-Democrat base. If 20 to 25 percent of blacks vote GOP, it’s curtains for Democrats.

If Republicans seek black votes, they will win some. As the Republican National Committee’s recent autopsy of the 2012 election noted: “We are never going to win over voters who are not asked for their support.” The study lamented that black voters routinely back Democrats “without hearing anyone in their community making a case to the contrary.”

My Black Family Regarding Obama

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Make no mistake about it, Barack Obama is the leader of a movement rather than our president pursuing the best interest of the United States of America. To all you black folks in my family who still think there is something seriously wrong with me for not supporting our black president, allow me to explain.

Obama is leading a socialistic secular progressive anti-America movement.

Whether you black folks in my family are ready to deal with it or not, the truth is Obama is always on the opposite side of what I know y'all believe. Though claiming to be a Christian, Obama is always opposing Christianity.

Our family heritage is full of ministers, deeply rooted in Christianity. No one in our family supports homosexual marriage. And yet, y'all support Obama who not only supports this sin, but is leading a movement hell-bent on forcing us to accept it as “normal”.  Obama vowed not just to be a friend to the Gay, Lesbian and Transgender communities, but an advocate.  Now, someone please explain to me how this squares up with the Bible you preached to me all of my life? It does not. Obama is black. You have chosen to side with him even over your commitment to Christ. I realize my statement may make you angry. The truth has a way of doing that.

Americans abort 4000 babies a day.  A disproportionate high number of those babies are black.  Obamacare forces Christians to fund abortions against their faith.  But once again, you guys do not care. Obama is black. So whatever he wants to do is OK with you. You even accuse me of being disloyal to my race while Obama is the guy supporting the slaughter of black babies.

Since Obama won the White House, you guys refuse to honestly critique any issue. At $1.84 when Obama took office, suddenly you are fine with gas averaging 4 bucks a gallon. Black unemployment is higher today than it was when Obama took office.

Apparently, that is OK as well.

Despite Obama running the country for four years, y'all say he bears no responsibility for anything including the horrible economy. Obama is the biggest government spender in world history.
The federal government spends $405 million per hour that we do not have.  So can one of my relatives explain to me how this is Bush's fault?

Y'all say, “If only those evil racist white Republicans would get out of Obama's way, he could fix everything!” I refuse to believe folks in my family are that stupid. Thus, I can only conclude that y'all are willfully making excuses for your black idol.

I am elated that a few (two) in our family have seen the light, but the vast majority have not. What I find extremely disappointing is that no amount of facts/truth appears to cause you to at least question your Obama zombie-ism. Your racism is so all consuming, you're like the walking brain dead, with Obama's black skin trumping everything.

Ironically, expecting me to join your worship of Obama goes against how I was raised. I was raised to stand up for what is right – always striving to do things God's way. But when America elected a black president, our family's morality and objectivity was thrown out the window in matters relating to this bizarre despicably conniving man. His race and skin color are all that matters. Who Obama is and what he stands for is irrelevant.

While I will always love my family, my respect for who we have presented ourselves to be from as far back as I can remember has been injured.

Despite your little digs, inferring that I am the weird guy in the family, I will not join your worship of the false idols/gods of race and skin color. Y'all raised me better!

Rand Paul proved one courageous patriot can challenge Obama, the Democrats, RINO Republicans and win! Imagine what two or more fearless patriots can achiever.

We have an opportunity to strengthen our ranks in Washington with a bold rock solid Conservative. 

With only 7 days until the primary, we need all hands on deck supporting Larry Grooms in his run for South Carolina's 1st Congressional district seat in the US House of Reps.

Rand Paul Confirms There Is Always Hope

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Courageous Tea Party Senator Rand Paul confirmed my statement that no one can foresee the future well enough to be totally fatalistic. Since the presidential election, discouraged patriots have been saying we have lost the country. Obama holds all the cards. All hope of restoring our country back to the vision of our Founding Fathers is gone. Game over.

As a Christian, I have encouraged patriots to keep the faith, stay on the battle field defending what is right. Situations can turn on a dime. Who could have foreseen that Rand Paul would challenge Goliath and win? Senator Rand Paul's successful filibuster resulting in the White House backing down from their unconstitutional claim that Obama has a right to kill Americans without due process is huge.

I wonder if this latest Obama Administration attack on the Constitution (wanting the right to kill Americans on American soil without a trial) was their jump-the-shark-moment? This extremely scary attempt by the Administration really exposes Obama's Imperial President mindset and arrogance. 

And quite frankly, why shouldn't Obama feel emboldened to do whatever he pleases including deciding who lives and who dies? Low info voters have sent Obama the message that as long as he keeps his vow to take care of them and punish the rich, they do not care about losing freedom or him shredding the Constitution. Along with the mainstream media firmly in his back pocket, it is understandable that Obama would think himself invincible – a supreme dictator – a king.

By attempting to secure unprecedented unconstitutional authority to kill Americans at will, Obama may have pushed the envelope a bit too far in the minds of the American people.

Also, I have noticed that a few in the mainstream media are criticizing Obama for closing down the White House tours to hype his bogus pain of sequestration.

And here is another breath of fresh air confirming that the country has not gone totally reprobate. The Bible miniseries is enjoying huge numbers, even beating the zombies.

So, to all you hopeless gloom and doomers in the Tea Party, stop it! There is always hope. You do not know what is going to happen tomorrow.

“So you gotta hang on til tomorrow, come what may. Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love ya tomorrow! You're always a day a-wayyyyyyyyy!!!”

Tea Party: Come Together

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

My late momma taught my siblings and I to never put family business in the street. However, my Tea Party family must deal with this issue if we are to accomplish our mission to halt Obama's tyranny and transformation of America into his socialist/progressive dream. The issue of which I speak is unity.

Early in our Tea Party movement four years ago, I was shocked to encounter turf wars and various selfish agendas. The people, the patriots who invest time and money for the movement, are not the problem. I am talking about some in leadership positions.

A major Tea Party website banned me from posting because I mentioned another Tea Party group. I thought, aren't we all on the same team? I quickly learned that we were not. Some opportunists joined the Tea Party simply because it was the hot new thing.

Then there are the single issue folks. If your Tea Party group does not channel all of it's efforts to the issue of which I am most passionate, I quit!

Let us not forget the doom and gloom folks. Their emails are as followed, “Lloyd you are an idiot for even trying to make a difference. Both parties are hopelessly corrupt.” No one, I repeat, no one can foresee the future well enough to be completely fatalistic. Numerous times in my life, when all hope appeared to be lost, God intervened. Thus, I have learned to move forward always attempting to do the right thing and deliver my best at whatever God has put in front of me to do.

The Bible says,“One can put a thousand to flight, two can put ten thousand to flight.” (Deuteronomy 32:30) In other words, our efforts are greatly increased when we work together.

Round one of the battle to restore America is over - Socialism won via Obama's reelection. As we enter round two, it is more crucial than ever that we put aside pettiness and selfishness. We must come together to save the greatest nation on the planet. Am I talking about sacrificing core beliefs? Absolutely not.

Patriots, there will always be issues on which we disagree. Such is human nature. Someone said if you find a perfect church, please do not join it because you will mess it up. I am simply asking that we be more diligent in finding common ground – areas in which we do agree and work together for the greater good.

Ronald Reagan said, “There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit.” Patriots, I do not care who gets the credit. I just want to see stronger opposition to Obama's agenda.

Obama and company are destroying our country folks. America can not survive with us fighting about who gets to sit on the front row.

Please do not think that I am being Mr High & Mighty preaching to you. In my youth, I made the mistake of making certain situations about me resulting in embarrassing consequences. When you come to a situation thinking, how can I help, and how can I make a positive difference, good things happen for all involved.

Brothers and sisters, the battle is much, much bigger than us. America, freedom and liberty are at stake.

Someone should organize Tea Party Unity rallies – groups across America coming together showing solidarity in our shared mission to restore America.

Do not allow one group to hog the stage – each Tea Party group should be equally represented. Do not allow an ego driven long winded knucklehead speaker who is disrespectful of their allotted time assignment to hijack the rally. The rallies must be about serving the attendees and not about individual egos or agendas. We can no longer waste time, energy and resources on such selfish nonsense.

Every time the Obama media hears negative news and in-fighting in the Tea Party, they have an orgasm. Since our inception, Obama's media has tried to portray white Tea Party members as redneck racists against a black president and black members such as I as Uncle Tom sellouts.

Karl Rove recently revealed that the Tea Party is also in the cross-hairs of the GOP.

So brothers and sisters, it is our patriotic duty to be on our best behavior. Cease in-fighting and come together focused on achieving our divinely inspired common goal of restoring America back to the vision of our Founding Fathers and the Constitution.

If we, the Tea Party, do not save America, no one will. God Bless.

Don't Freak. It's Just The "R" Word.

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

When you mention the “R” word, some folks on our side (Republicans/Conservatives) feel uncomfortable. I guess in their minds it feeds into the left branding the Tea Party as ignorant racists clinging to their God and guns, as President Obama described us. I have long since stopped caring about what characterless media and liberals think of me.

Candidly, when I first appeared on national TV I was a bit nervous. Oh the humiliation of coming across like an idiot. I was selected to be on a major cable news program as a spokesperson for Tea Party Express. My goal was to set the record straight about the Tea Party.

But, when the host began her interview proclaiming that the Tea Party is racist, no-ifs-ands-or-buts-about-it, I realized that the truth was irrelevant. This woman knew nothing about the Tea Party nor had she attended one rally. I am a black man who has been warmly embraced by fellow patriots at over 400 Tea Party rallies. And yet, I had to listen to this liberal media hack attempting to demonize decent folks and racially divide Americans for her political agenda. Thus, I believe that the liberal media is evil. Though contained during the interview, I was furious.

These people are unworthy of my respect or fear. As for the media's despicable claim that the Tea Party is racist, I have ceased dignifying it with a response. However, I will state that the Tea Party is the last hope for America, salt of the earth good people who simply love their country and reject socialism.

Regarding the “R” word, I must tell you about my new original song titled, “We Are Americans”. Its message is divinely inspired and required to restore America. I was extremely excited about performing the song in my repertoire at tea parties. Surprisingly, “We Are Americans” was not instantly embraced because it contained the “R” word one time towards the end of the song.

The word I am referring to is “Repent”. Some folks are uncomfortable when you add religious faith into the mix. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.” John Adams

Perhaps this explains why the left despises and is so hellbent on getting rid of the Constitution.

For the bible-phobic, let's ponder the “R” word from a non-religious historical point of view. Can you say Roman Empire, boys and girls? The mightiest empire on the planet collapsed from within due to immorality.

Can anyone deny that America is racing to the same end? Homosexuality is aggressively promoted everywhere – in elementary schools, kid's TV programming, sitcoms, dramas, movies, pro-sports and even cooking and home improvement TV shows.

Due to the left's if-you-disagree-you-are-a-hater tactic, absurdly, I must make the following disclaimer. Neither I or true Christians, hate gays or seek their harm. We simply refuse to be forced to embrace a sexual behavior which goes against God's Word. Pressure increases daily to succumb to the “gay is normal” politically correct mandated mindset.

The Bible says the fruit of hard work is wealth and the reward of slothfulness is poverty. American voters have embraced a completely opposite philosophy. Obama defines “fairness”as punishing the rich and rewarding the slothful. In his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Dr Ben Carson stated it brilliantly, Why should a man who pays a billion dollars in taxes be punished?

The assault on the traditional American family. Have you noticed the attack on dads? Long gone are the days of “Father Knows Best”. On modern TV dads are idiots and the butt of jokes. Twenty years ago while working as a graphic designer at a TV station, I was reprimanded for using an illustration of a traditional family (man, woman and two kids) on the cover of a brochure. Management said the illustration was offensive because families come in all configurations – single moms, same sex parents and etc.

Could you imagine a day when an image of a traditional family would be deemed offensive? Families are the bedrock of our society. Most black kids grow up fatherless.

Hollywood and the media typically portray kids as being wiser and smarter than their parents. Apparently, public schools agree because children may acquire abortion services without parental knowledge or consent.

An irresponsible rapper who produced eleven babies out-of-wedlock by ten women was offered his own reality TV show showcasing how he copes with all his babies' mommas. Meanwhile the media treats pro football star Tim Tebow with disdain for publicly displaying a moral compass.

Another symptom of the cancerous deterioration and racial polarization of our culture is that the “I Support Chris Dorner”(black cop killer) Facebook page received 3000 “likes”. Liberals believe blacks are eternal victims and should be allowed to have “issues”.

Is America headed the way of the Roman Empire? You betcha!

The non religious definition of “repent” is to change one's mind – to make a 180 degree change of direction. Clearly, it is time for America to “repent”.

Please listen and enjoy my song, We Are Americans.

Against the Ghetto Plantation

(Reprinted with permission)

By Jeanne Donovan

If Frederick Douglass walked today's ghettos, he would witness a new-age style of slavery, plantations without the lash and chains. He would soon be outraged that government overseers are perpetuating generations of dependency through policies designed to capture the votes of the ignorant. Of the people he would ask, "What have you done with your freedom? Where is your dignity and self-respect?" 

Frederick Douglass was born about 1818 on a Maryland plantation. Following common practice, he was taken from his mother to be raised with a brood of other children until he was old enough to work. He did not know his father. At the age of eight or nine, his master sent him to work for the Auld family in the city of Baltimore. Hugh Auld was a shipbuilder.

Douglass served as a houseboy to mistress Sofia and as a caretaker of their little son Tommy. Sophia had had no experience with slaves. She was a kindhearted and pious young woman, who treated Douglass with the same gentleness that she showed her own son. Her kindness shocked Douglass: "I had been treated as a pig on the plantation; I was treated as a child now." (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, Pg. 115)

While master Auld was working, Sophia read aloud to the boys from the Bible. The sound of her reading sparked Douglass' curiosity as to the "mystery of reading" (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, Pg. 117) that he said "roused in me the desire to learn." When he asked if she would teach him to read, she introduced him to Noah Webster's textbook, The American Spelling Book, a popular "blue-back speller" that sold an amazing 122 million copies in its lifetime (E. Jennifer Monaghan, A Common Heritage: Noah Webster's Blue-Back Speller, Pg. 11) only the Bible and McGuffey's Readers sold more copies. Douglass quickly mastered the alphabet, and was spelling three- and four-letter words when his education came to an abrupt halt.

When master Auld discovered that Sophia had been teaching Douglass to read, he rebuked her because educating slaves was unlawful and unsafe. Douglass heard Auld say, "he should know nothing but the will of his master, and learn to obey it." . . . "If you learn him now to read, he'll want to know how to write; and, this accomplished, he'll be running away with himself." (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pg. 117)

Those words pierced Douglass' soul: "Very well," thought I; "knowledge unfits a child to be a slave." . . . and from that moment I understood the direct pathway from slavery to freedom." Douglass became ". . . more resolute in seeking intelligence." (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pg. 118) He would teach himself to read and write, and then he would have the tools to escape bondage.

During his remaining seven years with the Aulds, Douglass surreptitiously accessed Tommy's discarded speller and copybooks. Where space permitted in the copybooks, Douglass mirrored Tommy's writing. On other occasions, Douglass used the top of a flour barrel on which to copy text from the Bible and a book of hymns that he had smuggled away.

Douglass also relied upon the help of sympathetic white boys:
I used to carry, almost constantly, a copy of Webster's spelling book in my pocket; and, when sent on errands, or when playtime was allowed me, I would step, with my young friends, aside, and take a lesson in spelling. I generally paid my tuition fee to the boys, with bread, which I also carried in my pocket. For a single biscuit, any of my hungry little comrades would give me a lesson more valuable to me than bread. (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pg. 124)
By the age of 13, Douglass was able to read well enough that he could follow current events in the newspaper, which is how he learned about the abolition movement and the Free States.
On one occasion, Douglass overheard some boys talking about The Columbian Orator, an anthology of famous speeches. Somehow he managed to save 50 cents, and bought the book for his secret library. The Columbian Orator increased Douglass' vocabulary and, most importantly, taught him how to express his thoughts.
The reading of these speeches added much to my limited stock of language, and enabled me to give tongue to many interesting thoughts... I had now penetrated the secret of all slavery and oppression, and had ascertained their true foundation to be in the pride, the power and the avarice of man... With a book of this kind in my hand... I was equal to a contest with the religious advocates of slavery, whether among the whites or among the colored people, for blindness, in this matter, is not confined to the former. I have met many religious colored people... who are under the delusion that God requires them to submit to slavery, and to wear their chains with meekness and humility. I could entertain no such nonsense as this; and I almost lost my patience when I found any colored man weak enough to believe such stuff...
...I saw through the attempt to keep me in ignorance; I saw that slaveholders would have gladly made me believe that they were merely acting under the authority of God, in making a slave of me... The feeding and clothing of me, could not atone for taking my liberty from me. (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pp. 126-128)
Aged 20, Frederick Douglass ran away to the free state of Massachusetts. There were many hardships to overcome in the years ahead, but he made the most of his freedom. Initially he joined the abolitionist movement. In time Douglass broke with them because they merely wanted to change hearts, whereas Douglass wanted to alter slavery laws. He gave heartrending speeches in the free states, as well as in England and Ireland. He founded The North Star, an antislavery newspaper. Douglass wrote three autobiographies, each book reanalyzing the chapters of his life and recording his evolving views of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. At first he saw no place for the black man in the founding documents, but in time he reversed his arguments.

Douglass became so renowned in the campaign to emancipate slaves that Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, invited him to the White House as an adviser. They developed a close friendship, and eventually Douglas embraced Lincoln's republicanism: "I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress." When Lincoln was assassinated, Douglass mourned saying, "No people or class of people in this country, have better reason for lamenting the death of Abraham Lincoln, than have the colored people." (James Oakes, The Radical and the Republican: Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, and the Triumph of Antislavery Politics, pg. 256) When asked what was Lincoln to the colored people, Douglass described all of Lincoln's predecessors as "facile and servile instruments of the slave power,[sic] Abraham Lincoln, while unsurpassed in his devotion, to the welfare of the white race, was also in a sense hitherto without example, emphatically, the black man's President: the first to show any respect for their rights as men." (James Oakes, The Radical and the Republican: Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, and the Triumph of Antislavery Politics, pg. 256)

Imagine this man, Frederick Douglass, walking the slums of Chicago or Detroit, and witnessing the desolation of its peoples. In My Bondage and My Freedom, Douglass laments that "Slavery does away with fathers, as it does with families." (pg. 51) To beget more wealth, women were raped by their masters who, without remorse, sold their kin. Destruction of the family continues today, and has been expanded to the whole people, regardless of their origins. State overseers reward single women with welfare benefits for every child they bear, so long as no father is in the home. Douglass warned, "Make a man a slave, and you rob him of moral responsibility. Freedom of choice is the essence of all accountability." (Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom: Part I -- Life as a Slave, pg. 149)

In the old days, slave babies were separated from their mothers shortly after birth and placed in the care of others until they were old enough to be sold or rented out. Asking questions about parentage was evidence of impudent curiosity that resulted in lashings. Today, children face a different hazard. Women with unwanted pregnancies can abort their babies, and overseers pay the clinic. Planned Parenthood sucks the babies from their mother's wombs, and dumps their bodies into the trash. Those babies will never show impudent curiosity.

In the nineteenth century slaves slept on the floor without blankets in unheated hovels. Rising at dawn, they worked until dark. They were expected to survive on meager rations, and nurse their own wounds. Today's slaves live in cookie-cutter government housing. They receive food stamps, health benefits, and free cell phones. Even if jobs were available, they are not required to work. Obesity is a growing problem. Bored youths kill each other for trivial reasons.

In Douglass' era, slaves did not know the days of the month or the months of the year, only seasonal events like planting and harvesting times. Ignorance was enforced when Democrats passed laws that forbade educating slaves. Education is a right for everyone now, but educators have thrown away the effective alphabet and phonics method used in the blue-back speller and replaced it with whole language instruction, a technique that impedes learning. Over time, the result has been a population of poorly educated people, easily fooled into believing that the government is a benevolent caretaker (so long as it is run by Democrat overseers.)

If, by magic, Douglass could meet the inhabitants of the ghettos, what might he say to them? He would remind them that Knowledge is Power, and much more importantly, Knowledge is Freedom. He would encourage them to take practical steps -- to master reading and writing by every means possible; to ask for help from educated people; to listen to educated speakers. And he will suggest that something old should be new again; reprint Webster's blue-back speller and The Columbian Orator.

State of the Union Address: Instigator on Jailhouse Steps

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Obama is the ultimate bully armed with the ultimate bully pulpit. He is an extremely smooth vindictive instigator. Obama speeches are thinly veiled “hit lists” targeting the rich, Republicans and Conservatives for destruction, retribution and revenge by his low-info minions. Obama is the movie clichĂ© loudmouth guy in westerns who stands on the jailhouse steps and works town folks into a frenzied mob. The rabble-rouser yells, “If I were you guys, I would not allow them to get away with it!”

In response, the angry mob breaks into the jail, overtakes the sheriff, drags out the terrified prisoner and hangs him without a trial as they are too enraged to wait for the judge to arrive on the morning train.

Obama uses his jailhouse-steps-instigator tactic to destroy his opposition, thus, winning him every policy debate. Beginning with his 2008 presidential campaign, the message of every Obama speech and supportive marketing is Republicans are selfish racists who want you poor and/or dead. If I were you guys, I would not allow them to get away with it!

A prime example is team Obama's irresponsible blatantly lying Medicare ad showing Republican Paul Ryan murdering granny by pushing her over a cliff. The truth is Ryan's Medicare reform proposal did not affect people over 55 years old and simply gave citizens more options and control of their health care.

Republicans/Conservatives misjudged the effectiveness of team Obama's over-the-top crazy absurd lying rhetoric. Little did we know that low info voters (TMZ, late night talk show and Two and a Half Men viewers) were perceiving it as the gospel truth.

Occupy Wall Street was nothing more than an instigator Obama and company's created mob. OWS so-called 99 percenters politically dragged out the one percenters and politically lynched them in the public square without a fair trial or anyone speaking the truth about how prosperity is achieved.

A wise man said there is nothing worse than a small person in a powerful position. Tragically, America has elected a lying deceitful small man who viciously targets achievers; a bully armed with the ultimate bully pulpit committed to destroying any opposition to him transforming America into his fantasy socialistic utopia.

My analysis of Obama's State of the Union Address – shameless lies, more lies and propaganda designed to woo low info voters.

My fellow Americans, here is the link to a one minute video exposing the real State of the Union.

Yes Rush, There IS Resistance to Obama!

By Lloyd Marcus
Proud Unhyphenated American
Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee

Rush Limbaugh said something extremely profound at the end of his depressing monologue in which he declared that there is no resistance to Obama. Rush said sooner or later something will turn it around. It always does.

Well, the time is now and that something is us! We The People in the form of the tea party are still here. Though severely wounded, extremely discouraged, brutally battered, devastatingly betrayed and soundly rejected, we the resistance survived and are poised for battle. What's that line from the pop song? “What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.”

We cried, moped and many in a moment of frustration and hopelessness, temporarily gave up. We are human. Our pain is great. But when the dust cleared, and upon stabilizing our emotions, patriots defaulted back to what motivated them to join the resistance four years ago – love – love for the greatest nation on the planet and a burning desire not to allow it to be transformed into an abomination of the vision of our Founding Fathers. No Mr President, not on our watch!

As a Christian, I believe that as long as we stay faithful to Godly principles and values (Conservatism) we can expect a miracle at any moment. The Bible tells how one day Joseph was hopeless in prison with no release in sight. The next day Joseph was summoned to the King which led to him becoming a ruler, the King's right hand man. With God any and all things are possible.

Also, history confirms that no one knows enough to be fatalistic. From the ashes of the Goldwater campaign came the beginning of the legacy of Ronald Reagan.

After Bill Clinton beat George HW Bush in 1992 there was a sense that Clinton and the New Democrat Party were unstoppable, but it was the 1994 Midterms that saw the emergence of Newt Gingrich and the Republican Revolution that resulted in one of the largest shifts in political power in Congress in our nation's history.

Someone wisely said, “Pray for help, but swim for home!” In other words, along with praying for our nation, the resistance/patriots are organizing, and preparing, everyone doing their part to restore America to the constitutional principles of individual liberty and freedom on which our country was founded.

We at Conservative Campaign Committee have launched our first national TV ad, The Imperial President, which exposes Obama's unlawful tyranny. has organized Day of Resistance rallies across America protesting Obama's agenda.

God, Guns and the Constitution national town hall meetings are happening across America. 

Strategically ignored by the liberal media, a huge Pro-Life rally took place a few weeks ago. 

Resistance to Obama is out there folks. Karl Rove coming out of the closet announcing that the GOP is at war with the Tea Party could be a gift from God – serving to fire up demoralized patriots. Mr Rove, if you think the Tea Party was a force to be reckoned with in the past - you “ain't” seen nothing yet.

So yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus (Barack Obama). And yes Rush Limbaugh, there is resistance to Obama/Santa Claus – The Tea Party!
