Conservatives: Come on, you’ve got to be at this huge event!

“SHOWDOWN” IN JUST 11 DAYS – YOU’VE GOT TO COME!!!

Friends – one of the largest gatherings of conservatives will take place in 11 days from now and it just keeps growing bigger and bigger and bigger.

It’s the “Showdown in Searchlight” in Harry Reid’s hometown of Searchlight, NV – a mega tea party rally which kicks off the Tea Party Express III. If you haven’t already made plans to come to Searchlight you need to do so right now.

Sarah Palin will speak. Joe The Plumber will speak as well. Victoria Jackson from “Saturday Night Live.” Andrew Breitbart. And today we are pleased to announce that Hannah Giles – the brave young lady from the ACORN sting videos. And Ann Coulter has just announced she’ll be at the Henderson pre-rally, which follows the event in Searchlight. More details on that – HERE.

This is shaping up to be one of the largest conservative gatherings in the nation. Some folks are driving in from other states. Some are flying in from across the nation.

YOU CAN GET A SEAT ON A BUS HEADING TO SEARCHLIGHT

There’s still time for you to catch a ride aboard one of our Charter Buses heading from cities across America to the event in Searchlight. Just send us an email requesting info on the charter bus nearest you, including your name, city, state and telephone number in an email and send it to: Charte[email protected]

BRING YOUR RV/MOTORHOME TO SEARCHLIGHT!

And for those of you who have an RV, motorhome or trailer, this is the perfect way to come to Searchlight, NV. Make it a fun weekend with a visit to Las Vegas, some great buffets and a discounted show deal.

Campgrounds have been filling up throughout the area surrounding Searchlight. There are only a couple spaces left – though some campgrounds will allow dry camping. There are also thousands of open spaces still available surrounding the greater Las Vegas metropolitan area.

Nevada Action Coalition has put together a listing of RV parks in the greater Las Vegas area. So if you can’t find a camp site near Searchlight, NV then consult this directory for Las Vegas: http://www.nvaction.com/teaparty10.html

[Just scroll down the page to find the RV park directory)

The extended outlook for late next week for Las Vegas calls for sunny skies with highs in the mid-70s. This is going to be an incredible weekend, folks. What a wonderful time to celebrate America, and fight back against the crooked, corrupt, Big Government politicians who are hurting our nation.

PATRIOTIC CARPOOL : Laughlin to Searchlight to Henderson

If you are driving out for this incredible day, then be sure to bring some American flags and red-white-blue decorations for your vehicles… here’s why:

The plan is to have supporters meet up with our tour delegation of Tea Party Express buses and support vehicles in the parking lot of Harrah’s Laughlin. We will be holding a brief news conference in the parking lot and then the buses will pull out leading the caravan of vehicles from Laughlin to Searchlight.

Everyone is encouraged to come to Harrah’s Laughlin and join the caravan Folks who want to join this effort should arrive at the Harrah’s Laughlin parking lot between 9:30-10:00 AM.

We then will caravan together northward towards Searchlight and hold the big mega-rally.

When we’ve completed the “Showdown in Searchlight” rally we will have the Tea Party Express buses then lead an even bigger caravan of all these vehicles to the Henderson Pavillion for the 5:00 PM rally there.

So… the rundown:

9:30-10:00 AM – Supporters arrive at Harrah’s Laughlin parking lot. Then everyone caravans up to Searchlight sometime around 10:30 AM.
10:30 AM – Caravan departs Laughlin in its northward trip to Searchlight.
12:00 Noon – Tea Party Express’s “Showdown in Searchlight” Mega Rally.
4:00 PM – Grassroots Nevada event with Ann Coulter at Henderson Pavillion
5:00 PM – Tea Party Express rally at Henderson Pavillion

The day will be one complete day of pride and patriotism for our tea party movement and the constitutional republic we are fighting to preserve.

RightBias Idiot Awards – 03/16/10

Top Idiots Of The Week

WINNER:

A Korean man has finally found happiness. He found the perfect mate and got married. The hitch – his perfect mate is a large pillow with a picture of a woman on it. I hope they will be very happy. No word yet on any imminent little pillows.

RUNNER UP:

A group of unrepentant hippes took to the woods in N. Carolina, moaning and crying over man’s inhumanity to old growth forests. Of course they taped it so the world would know how much they care. And no, this video is not satire…they mean it. Words fail.

HONORABLE MENTION:

My former favorite actor, Sean Penn once again makes our list. This idiot took to the airwaves demanding that anyone who calls dictator Hugo Chavez a dictator should be sent to jail. He’s not kidding.

Six city women seeking backside enhancements have been hospitalized in the last two months after getting injected with mixtures of hardware-grade caulk, silicone and petroleum jelly. These former hard asses apparently got a bum steer from their surgeon, who, alas, was unlicensed.

Not to be outdone, a 42 year-old woman who currently holds the title of world’s fattest mother is setting her sights a bit higher. She is piling on the pounds in order to win the title of the world’s fattest woman. Heavy stuff…

Dutch patients have decided that their rights include sexual services by their nurses, prompting a union representing these nurses to launch a national campaign opposing their demands. Who knows, in this era of rights instead of responsibilities, they may just win. If so, we’ll have to remove them from our Idiot List. We’ll keep you posted.

STUPID CRIMINALS:

A Kansas man told police officers that he had been beaten and left with a head wound after he tried to buy drugs using Monopoly money. Sometimes, life just isn’t fair.

A woman in California found that crime really does pay. After brandishing a gun at 11 people in a market, she got away with a total of six bucks.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

President Obama stated that half of the 40,000 letters that pour into the White House every day brand him an idiot. Does that make him one? You decide.

Till next week, watch out for idiots and try to keep smiling.

Chickens Comin’ Home… To Roost…

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamiliton

Let a man be known by the counsel he keeps…

President Obama would have us believe that he spent 20 years in Jeremiah Wright’s church, but he never noticed the Marxist theology or the blatant hatred towards America, Jews and Caucasians in general. He verbally threw the Reverend Wright under the political bus, but is still lifelong friends with him and taking his counsel. Black Liberation Theology is the basis for Wright’s sermons and you better believe it is an ideology that Obama embraces wholeheartedly – just not out in the open.

Many have commented on the obvious lack of church attendance by the first family over the last year. This gives the impression they are adrift spiritually and worse yet, either have no faith or are hiding their true spiritual leanings. But never fear, New Zeal has a new post detailing Obama’s new minister and his beliefs as well as further background on Jeremiah Wright and his interesting connections and history.

The Reverend Jim Wallis

Meet the Reverend Jim Wallis – a leader of American “progressive” Christianity. Rev. Wallis has served on Obama’s White House Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, or “Faith Council” since 2008, but he has a very personal relationship with Obama that goes back for many years. He is a staunch supporter and defender of Obama and especially Obama’s outreach to Muslims.

New Zeal looks at Rev. Wallis’ history and background which makes for very interesting reading. Here are some highlights:

  • He is a political activist first and foremost, using the Christian faith as a political vehicle.
  • Wallis went on to join and then lead the militant Students for a Democratic Society, at Michigan State University.
  • After College, Wallis went on to attend Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Illinois where he joined with other young seminarians in establishing the community that eventually became Sojourner.
  • Meanwhile, many of Wallis’ old SDS comrades had founded a new Marxist organization with some older Communist Party veterans , patriotically named, the New American Movement. In 1982, NAM, in turn, merged with the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee to form Democratic Socialists of America.

    The new organization took penetration of organized religion very seriously, immediately forming a Religion and Socialism Commission.

Barack Obama and Jim Wallis are Marxists/Socialists with over 25 years of ties to the Democratic Socialists of America. Wallis shares a common ideology with Obama and fervently believes in the redistribution of wealth. It is fair to say that Wallis is one of the most prominent radicals in the US and is now the spiritual adviser to the President of the United States.

Let’s also not forget the tactics of the left attacking Glenn Beck who is one the most popular conservative leaders in the US and who has risked it all to expose Obama’s Marxist ties. Beck pointed out exactly what social justice is and to watch out for it. Wallis was very quick to attack Beck. Don’t fall for it… Beck is a good man of faith and the left and Wallis are twisting his words and trying to smear him. A very typical tactic of the thugs in this administration and by Marxists in general.

Jim Wallis is connected to some of the most radical people in America. He is pushing the ideology of social justice, which is Marxism wrapped in a shiny religious wrapper and it is poison.

Obama will be remembered for his choice of counsel and not warmly I might add… His chickens are certainly coming home to roost.
