Remember the veteran who told Rep. Brian Baird (who called any dissenter a BROWNSHIRT) to “keep your hands off my kids:
Well, David Hedrick is ready to make sure that Congress leaves his kids alone, and he is running against the Congressman:
Both our nation and the state of Washington face tremendous challenges. Instead of being pulled back from the brink, our country is being pushed towards the edge of a precipice by leadership that has no respect for our Constitution or the founding principles of our Republic. These principles, which made us the most prosperous nation in the world are being discarded
at a dizzying pace. Changing this course will require bold action on the part
of our national representatives and the citizens of our proud country.
It was by God’s grace and divine providence that our Republic came into existence out of the fires of an American Revolution. It is by that same
grace that we shall take our country back.
I once defended our country as a U.S. Marine on foreign shores. I now
intend to defend it on the home front as a U.S. Congressman.
I ask you to stand with me now, as we reclaim our nations place as that
beacon of light on a hill.
God save the Republic,
David William Hedrick

from the Weekly Standard:
Behind the bench, flapping in the late-afternoon wind, was the guidon of Gruss’ 303rd regiment, worn almost to translucence in spots, but entirely intact. It had been brought back from Japan after the war by a comrade, carefully guarded through the years, and passed from veteran to veteran as time took its toll on the regiment’s numbers.
Gruss is not a conspiracy theorist or an extremist. He did not carry a rude sign or mention with malice the president of the United States. He wore a “Tea Party Patriot” t-shirt and a hat heavy with ribbons, which spoke more clearly about his claim to the title of “patriot” than any shirt could. Why did he come?
“Our freedoms are being taken away,” Gruss said, getting specific about his children’s and grandchildren’s ability to choose their doctors, care, and insurance companies. “I wanted to come here and do my part. If Obamacare comes to be…we’ll lose all that.”
Lovell chimed in: “I’m here for my children and grandchildren. I just want them to live in the same land of freedom that we were privileged to live in.”
Even when they sound mundane—when they’re dismissed blithely with legislative promises about “choice” and “competition”—those freedoms are important to Gruss. He considers all of them bought at a very high price.
“The buddies I trained with in 1943,” he said, pausing. “Probably about half gave their lives for the freedoms we have today.”

Republicans Edge Ahead of Democrats in 2010 Vote
Registered voters prefer Republicans for the House, 48% to 44%
PRINCETON, NJ — Republicans have moved ahead of Democrats by 48% to 44% among registered voters in the latest update on Gallup’s generic congressional ballot for the 2010 House elections, after trailing by six points in July and two points last month.

Florida’s Governor initially thought his ascension to the United Senates Senate in 2010 was an entitlement that would make his campaigning a “walk in the park”. But his primary opponent, Marco Rubio, is narrowing the gap in the polls, and today, the CLUB for GROWTH endorsed Rubio over the incumbent Governor:
The Club for Growth made it official this morning, throwing its weighty endorsement behind former Florida state House Speaker Marco Rubio‘s (R) Senate bid and significantly complicating Gov. Charlie Crist’s (R) path to the nomination.
Club president Chris Chocola praised Rubio as “one of the brightest young stars in American politics” and a “proven champion of economic liberty.” Chocola also skewered Crist for repeatedly taking the side of “big government liberals on major economic issues facing America today.”
The Club’s endorsement of Rubio had been rumored for months but momentum for it picked up after the former state legislator managed to raise more than $1 million between July 1 and Sept. 30 — proving viability against the incredibly well-funded Crist.
What will the Club’s endorsement mean for Rubio? First and foremost, money. The Club has shown considerable capacity to bundle — collecting a series of donations from their donors and then directing them to a candidate — hundreds of thousands of dollars to those they endorse.
One needs only look at the $400,000 the Club bundled for Conservative party nominee Doug Hoffman in his unsuccessful bid for New York’s 23rd district last week as evidence of its power.

Mr. Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”

from America’s Right:
So where do we go from here?
It’s by no means certain that this monstrosity will pass in the Senate. The longer the debate lasts, the less chance it has of passing. Pelosi knew this, which is why she broke her pledge to have it online for 72 hours before a vote. If the American people had enough time to peruse through the 2,000 legislative Goliath they would have found more than enough reasons to oppose it.
So Jeff’s analysis is correct: the only reason this bill got passed is that in the euphoria of passing the Stupak amendment (which banned funding for abortions) conservatives let their guards down. I don’t think this was a deliberate strategy from the Democrats, but it doesn’t matter. When you want to sell something for $25 you set the price at $30. Then, when you come down $5, the other guy feels like he’s getting a deal. That’s what happened here.
It’s going to come down to timing again in the Senate. Right now the Democrats have the momentum because they won in the House. The glory of victory fades quickly in Washington, however, and then attention will turn back to the bill itself. The faster we can get people to focus on the facts instead of the rhetoric the faster we can sap support for this bill.

CMF does not say what qualifies as offensive, but if this summer is any indication that definition would include anything that the Congressman did not want to talk about. In other words, this report urges Congressmen not to actually interact with their constituents, but to avoid them altogether by holding safe townhalls they can completely control. And what did CMF find where the results of these Potemkin townhalls

Some of the problems at Speaker’s Pelosi’s office today were sparked by Right-to-Life and Code Pink’s actions at the same time the Tea Party Patriots were seeking to speak to the Speaker and her staff.

The AP is reporting that the 12 arrests in Speaker Pelosi’s office were from the “Right to Life” activists, some of whom were the same as those arrested when the President spoe at Notre Dame. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_HEALTH_OVERHAUL_CAPITOL_RUMBLE?SITE=FLSTU&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT

There are reports of twelve people being arrested at Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office.
Initial reports say that several people were arrested for “unlawful” inside of the room, several more for “unlawful conduct” in the hallway outside, and two for disorderly conduct in the hall. It will be interesting to see the video footage on these arrests, since you know that the videophones were catching it all….. or was that the “unlawful conduct.”
Earlier today, before the gathering on the Capitol steps, nine people in SUPPORT OF universal healthcare were arrested in Sen. Lieberman’s office for disrupting his office.
