Rock River Patriots Meeting Friday November 11th

The Rock River Patriots will be having a meeting on Friday November 11th at 6pm in the Community Room at the Dwight Foster Library in Fort Atkinson.  The Dwight Foster Library is located at 209 Merchants Avenue.

At this meeting, we will discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly as it relates to the fall election on November 8th.

Don’t forget to vote on November 8th!  While we understand that there is no perfect candidate on this ballot, choose freedom over enslavement.  You may not be thrilled with the presidential candidates on either the Republican and Democrat sides of the aisle, but there is a big difference between the two.  Do you want a woman president who is rotten to the core, establishment, corrupt, bought and paid for, and a person with blood on her hands (Benghazi), who will probably be indicted given the recent revelations of the re-opened FBI investigation?  Or do you want a president who is sometimes crude and politically incorrect, but yet a successful businessman who employs many Americans, and who is an outsider of the system to shake things up?  We know what our choice is.  Choose wisely, your freedom depends on it!

Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States?

Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States?  The GOP’s chickens have come home to roost.

It is definitely an interesting time when we see that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States.  Many “so-called conservative” pundits are now continuing with the Never Trump mantra.

It’s important to examine how and why this has happened.  The two big government parties have no one to blame but themselves.

TEA Party conservatives, libertarians, and constitutionalists already know that the Progressives are really just big government loving socialists and communists. There is little explanation that needs to be said here about the Democratic Party. Most understand that the Democratic Party is run by radical leftists with an ideology that is anathema to our Constitutional Republic.  They really don’t figure into the Trump equation.

Many conservatives and libertarians in the Tea Party / Patriot movement got involved because they were angry with the status quo of the Republican Party. They worked hard to get Republicans elected who claimed conservative credentials. However, throughout the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration, the so-called conservatives behaved like there was nothing they could do and sold out again, and again. Many of us recognize this was nothing new.  It is been going on for a long time. Ronald Reagan was in favor of an assault weapons ban, but you won’t hear that from these conservative pundits who attempt to deify Ronald Reagan as “the standard” by which all other current legislators are measured.

Really what we see on a national level is a Republican and Democrat flavor of the big government anti-liberty party. This is a two sided party run by “Insiders” who know better than the “rabble”.

Hillary Clinton will carry on more of the same policies that the Nobel Peace Prize-winning President has started. The Middle East is in chaos because of the intervention by Obama and Bush.  More of our brave soldiers and diplomats will be hung out to die like the brave Americans in Benghazi Libya were while on Hillary’s watch as Secretary of State. The name Clinton is synonymous with corruption, and I can imagine the government will only get worse with Hillary in the driver’s seat.  We will continue to have an invasion on our Southern border.

The rhetoric from Ted Cruz’ campaign seemed to suggest that he was a political outsider. However, he has worked in government virtually his entire life.  Cruz’ wife was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and has ties to one of the big Wall Street Banks. Many are rightfully suspicious of these connections.  Many bible-believing Christians are concerned about Cruz’ ties to Dominion Theologists.

It seems to me that we had the choice between two real political insiders. And then there’s Trump. Make no mistake about it, Donald Trump is a wildcard. Nobody can say for sure what he is going to do.  What Trump demonstrated in the Republican debates was that he was not afraid of speaking his mind.  There is no doubt we can do without the vulgarity.  However, his stance on illegal immigration is what gets him some of the biggest applause lines anywhere.  He is stating the obvious.  Things that need to be said and done.

The question is, given how many Americans feel betrayed by the political insiders, is it worth the risk to vote for Trump?  It is pretty clear Trump is not controlled by anyone.  That is what seems to be the appeal of him.  I contend that is why many conservatives have been voting for Trump, knowing he is not a conservative.  Trump is a pragmatist, but he is not controlled.  The general public is starting to wake up to the idea that the system is rigged.  Americans want America put first, not special interests.  Donald Trump is speaking to this, whether or not he believes it is another question.

If Trump finds his way to the White House, maybe his wildcard factor will open the eyes of Americans to the fact that we should not have an “all powerful imperial” President.  Maybe the Trump wildcard factor will be a catalyst for reassertion of Sovereignty by the States.  Maybe the Trump wildcard factor will be an incentive for Congress to actually do their job and restrain all the unconstitutional activities / agencies of the federal government.  If that is the result of a potential Trump presidency, that may be a wildcard worth playing.

THE ROCK RIVER PATRIOTS AND THE IRS (continued…)

As we have noted before, the ROCK RIVER PATRIOTS have been targeted by the IRS in our pursuit of tax exempt status.  Having decided to withdraw our application after getting the run around, we are now faced with paying the taxes we owe.  It is no suprise how much of a run around we have gotten while trying to get this cleared up.  After having our application delayed by the IRS for over a year (close to a year and a half), we are now faced with all the interest and late fees which are almost as much as the taxes we were supposed to pay.  Coincidentally, we filed our 2011 and 2012 taxes to the IRS as a pending tax exempt entity while waiting to hear about our status.

Once again, this should be a wake-up call to everyone.  It’s time to repeal the 16th Amendment and abolish the IRS.  Why don’t we have any Republicans talking about this?

Matt Kittle from the Wisconsin Reporter has an article with an update on our story, part of which is shared below with a link to the full story on their website.

‘Out-of-control government’ still hitting conservatives

By M.D. Kittle| Wisconsin Reporter

MADISON, Wis. — If you think the Internal Revenue Service’s persecution of conservative organizations has faded into an “inappropriate” past, the folks from theRock River Patriots would like to set the record straight.

“We are being totally overrun by an out-of-control government,” said Marvin Munyon, a director of the southern Wisconsin tea party group.

The Rock River Patriots, like so many other limited-government organizations applying for tax-exempt status, was given the administrative runaround for more than a year before Munyon, exasperated and “threatened,” threw up his hands and dropped the group’s pursuit of 501(c)(4) status.

Not only has the revenue agency demanded the small, grassroots organization pay hundreds of dollars in taxes owed while the Rock River Patriots worked through the onerous tax-exempt application process, the IRS is charging nearly as much in late payment fees, penalties and interest.

Do We Have A 1st Amendment Anymore?

This bill was signed in secret by the President in March of 2012.  When we say we have all of the pieces in place for a “turn-key dictatorship”, this is further proof.  Have we become a third world nation where despots control what is seen and heard?

Let’s see who voted for this terrible piece of legislation: HR 347 Vote Tally

All of the WI Congressional Reps voted for this bill.  The U.S. Senate passed the bill by unanimous consent, so there is no record of how they voted on it.  However, all it would have took was for a Senator to object and ask for a roll call vote.

This is disgraceful!!!

Pat Buchanan: Who Wants War With Iran?

Who Wants War With Iran?

By Patrick J. Buchanan

On Sept. 21, 1976, as his car rounded Sheridan Circle on Embassy Row, former Chilean ambassador Orlando Letelier was assassinated by car bomb. Ronni Moffitt, a 25-year-old American women who worked with Letelier at the leftist Institute for Policy Studies, died with him.

Michael Townley, an ex- asset in the hire of Chile’s intelligence agency, confessed to using anti-Castro Cubans to murder Letelier, in what was regarded as an act of terrorism on U.S. soil.

Which raises a question: Are not the murders of four Iranian scientists associated with that nation’s nuclear program, by the attachment of bombs to their cars in Tehran, also acts of terrorism?

Had the Stalin- or Khrushchev-era Soviets done this to four U.S. scientists in Washington, would we not have regarded it as acts of terrorism and war?

has accused the United States and of murder. But emphatically denied any U.S. complicity: “I want to categorically deny any United States involvement in any kind of act of violence inside .”

“The United States had absolutely nothing to do with this,” added National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor, “We strongly condemn all acts of violence, including acts of violence like this.”

Victoria Nuland, Clinton’s spokeswoman at State, denounced “any or attack on an innocent person, and we express our sympathies to the family.”

The assassinated scientist was a supervisor at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility that hosts regular inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency. If is building a bomb, it is not at Natanz.

U.S. denial of involvement leaves as the prime suspect. has not denied it, and this comes at a sensitive time in U.S.-Israeli relations.

In Foreign Policy magazine, author and historian Mark Perry, claiming documentation, alleges that agents in London posed as agents and contacted Jundallah, a terrorist group, to bribe and recruit them to engage in acts of terror inside .

Jundallah has conducted attacks in Sistan-Baluchistan province, killing government officials, soldiers, and women and children.

According to Perry, when George W. Bush learned of the agents posing as while recruiting terrorists, he “went totally ballistic.”

Yet Meir Dagan, head of at the time, denies it, and, ironically, has called any Israeli attack on ’s nuclear facilities “the stupidest thing I have ever heard.”

Who is telling the truth? We do not know for sure.

What we do know is that “Bibi” Netanyahu is desperate to have the United States launch air and missile strikes to stop Teheran from becoming the world’s ninth nuclear power. And he is echoed not only by U.S. , but candidates save .

Nor should we be surprised.

To bring America into its war with Germany, Winston Churchill set up William Stephenson, “A Man Called Intrepid,” with hundreds of agents in New York to engage in everything from bribery to of U.S. senators to get the United States to enter the war and pull England’s chestnuts out of the fire.

This is what desperate countries do.

And while America First kept us out of the European war until Adolf Hitler invaded Russia, ensuring that Russians, not Americans, died in the millions to defeat him, eventually America was maneuvered into war.

Whoever is assassinating these Iranian scientists, be it homegrown Iranian terrorists, Jundallah at the instigation of , or , the objective is clear: Enrage the Iranians so they strike out at America, provoking a U.S.-Iranian war.

Is such a war in America’s interests? Consider.

While U.S. air and naval power would prevail, Iranian civilians would die, as some of their nuclear facilities are in populated areas. Moreover, we cannot kill the nuclear knowledge has gained. Thus we would only set back their nuclear program by several years. And a bloodied and beaten would then go all-out for a bomb.

The regime, behind which its people would rally, would emerge even more entrenched. U.S. bombing did not cause Germans to remove Hitler or Japanese to depose their emperor. And we lack the ground troops to invade and occupy a country three times the size of Iraq.

All U.S. ships, including carriers in that bathtub the Persian Gulf, would be at risk from shore-based anti-ship missiles and the hundreds of missile boats in Iran’s navy. Any sea battle would send oil prices to $200 and $300 a barrel. There goes the eurozone.

Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Shia of the Saudi oil fields and Bahrain, home port to the Fifth Fleet, and Iranian agents in Afghanistan and Iraq could set the region aflame.

As America started up the road to Baghdad in 2003, Gen. David Petraeus is said to have asked, “Tell me how this ends.”

Before some agent provocateur pushes us into war with Iran, Congress should debate the wisdom of authorizing President Obama, or anyone else, to take America into her fifth war in a generation in the Middle and Near East.

Strings #3

From Pat Buchanan’s Blog: Marco Rubio vs. Rand Paul

Here is some very interesting analysis about entangling alliances by Pat Buchanan…and contains information about two of the neocons running for president.

Marco Rubio vs. Rand Paul

By Patrick J. Buchanan

In August 2008, as the world’s leaders gathered in Beijing for the Olympic games, Georgian President , hot-headed and erratic, made his gamble for greatness.

It began with a stunning artillery barrage on Tskhinvali, capital of tiny South Ossetia, a province that had broken free of Tbilisi when Tbilisi broke free of . As Ossetians and Russian peacekeepers fell under the Georgian guns, terrified Ossetians fled into .

Saakashvili’s blitzkrieg appeared to have triumphed.

Until, that is, Russian armor, on ’s orders, came thundering down the Roki Tunnel into Ossetia, sending Saakashvili’s army reeling. The Georgians were driven out of Ossetia and expelled from a second province that had broken free of Tbilisi: Abkhazia.

The Russians then proceeded to bomb Tbilisi, capture Gori, birthplace of Joseph Stalin, and bomb Georgian airfields rumored to be the forward bases for the Israelis in any pre-emptive strike on .

The humiliation of Saakashvili was total, and brought an enraged and frustrated running to the microphones.

“Today, we’re all Georgians,” bawled McCain.

Well, not exactly.

President Bush called Putin’s response “disproportionate” and “brutal,” but did nothing. Small nations that sucker-punch big powers do not get to dictate when the fisticuffs stop.

What made this of interest to Americans, however, was that Bush had long sought to bring Georgia into . Only the resistance of Old Europe had prevented it.

And had Georgia been a member of when Saakashvili began his , U.S. Marines and Special Forces might have been on the way to the Caucasus to confront Russian troops in a part of the world where there is no vital U.S. interest and never has been any U.S. strategic interest whatsoever.

A U.S with — over Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia — would have been an act of national criminal insanity.

Days later, there came another startling discovery.

McCain foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann had been paid $290,000 by the Saakashvili regime, from January 2007 to March 2008, to get Georgia into , and thus acquire a priceless U.S. guarantee to fight on Georgia’s side in any clash with .

What makes this history relevant today?

Last week, Sen. Marco Rubio, rising star of the Republican right, on everyone’s short list for VP, called for a unanimous vote, without debate, on a resolution directing President Obama to accept Georgia’s plan for membership in at the upcoming summit in Chicago.

Rubio was pushing to have the U.S. Senate pressure Obama into fast-tracking Georgia into , making Tbilisi an ally the United States would be obligated by treaty to go to to defend.

Now it is impossible to believe a senator, not a year in office, dreamed this up himself. Some foreign agent of Scheunemann’s ilk had to have had a role in drafting it.

And for whose benefit is Rubio pushing to have his own countrymen committed to fight for a Georgia that, three years ago, started an unprovoked war with ? Who cooked up this scheme to involve Americans in future wars in the Caucasus that are none of our business?

The answer is unknown. What is known is the name of the senator who blocked it — , son of Ron Paul, who alone stepped in and objected, defeating Rubio’s effort to get a unanimous vote.

The resolution was pulled. But these people will be back. They are indefatigable when it comes to finding ways to commit the blood of U.S. soldiers to their client regimes and ideological bedfellows.

Back in 2008, however, as Bush was confining himself to protesting the excesses of ’s response, his ex-U.N. ambassador was full of righteous rage and ready for military action.

In the London Telegraph, Aug. 15, 2008, John Bolton declared that Russia had conducted an “invasion,” that Georgia had been a “victim of aggression,” that America had “fiddled while Georgia burned,” that we had played the “paper tiger”when faced by the snarling Russian Bear.

As for the European Union, in bringing about a ceasefire, it had achieved results “approaching Neville Chamberlain’s moment in the spotlight at Munich.”

But did not Georgia launch the attack that started the war?

“This confrontation is not about who violated the Marquis of Queensbury’s rule in South Ossetia,” scoffed Bolton. Russia planned this “rape” because brave little Georgia refused to be “Finlandized.”

Restoring America’s credibility, said Bolton, now requires “drawing a clear line for Russia” in the Caucasus and elsewhere.

And who is John Bolton?

told two groups Wednesday he intends to name Bolton secretary of state.

With Newt appointing as America’s first diplomat an uber-hawk who makes Dick Cheney look like Gandhi, and Mitt Romney’s foreign policy team crawling with neocons primed for war with , a vote for the GOP in 2012 looks more and more like a vote for war.

Like the Bourbons of old, the Republican Party seems to have learned nothing and forgotten nothing.
