Jon Voight’s Letter for the American People

Hat Tip: Brian B./Jean Stoner/Dave Logan/Andrea Shea King

Below is the text of the letter:

“In one year, the American people are witnessing the greatest lie that is cleverly orchestrated by President Obama and his whole administration. The lie is a potent aggression that feeds the needs of people who either have not educated themselves enough to understand the assault upon us all or the very poor and needy who live to be taken care of.

President Obama feeds these people poison, giving them the idea that they are entitled to take from the wealthier who have lived and worked in a democracy that understands that capitalism is the only truth that keeps a nation healthy and fed. Now the lie goes very deep and President Obama has been cleverly trained in the Alinsky method and it would be very important that every American knows what that method is. It is a socialistic, Marxist teaching and with it, little by little, he rapes this nation, taking down our defenses, making new language for the Islamic extremists. The world looked up to us as a symbol of hope and prosperity now wonders what will become of the entire world if America is losing its power.

The American people who understand exactly what is taking place have come together in the thousands, vowing to try to stay together as a unit of love and freedom for all men and women, from all walks of life, shivering to think that this once great nation will be a third world country. This will be the first president to ever weaken the United States of America. President Obama uses his aggression and arrogance for his own agenda, against the will of the American people when he should be using his will and aggression against our enemies.

Every loving American for peace and truth and the security of our nation must come out and join the Tea Parties in their states. The opposition will continue their tactics; they will lie and plant their own bullies amongst us. Everyone must pay close attention to who stands next to them. We can weed out the liars and agitators. Let us all stay in Gods light. Let no man put asunder. We can and we will prevail. God bless us all!”

Jon Voight, April 10th, 2010


Jon Voight to Obama: You Feed Poison to Ill-educated and Poor Americans; You Are Raping America!


In what have got to be the most morally clear statements to ever come out of an actor working in the entertainment business, Jon Voight mercilessly told off Barack Obama in a way that was long overdue and extremely consummate. Appearing on Huckabee on Saturday, Jon Voight read a letter to the American people that he had specially prepared for his appearance. Looking intrepidly at the camera and reading confidently, Voight rebuked Obama for feeding poison to America’s ill-educated and the poor for the purposes of wealth redistribution. Voight also took Obama to task for being a disciple of the Saul Alinsky method, asserting that Obama is raping America with it. He urged Obama to use the aggression he’s using against the American people against America’s enemies instead. The actor then closed by giving words of encouragement to the patriots in the Tea Party movement, telling them to persevere and be vigilant. What a tour de force, contained in just three minutes!

In possibly the only interview that Mike Huckabee has conducted that’s ever been of any use, Jon Voight asked for an allotment of time to read his letter out loud, and Huckabee claimed he himself didn’t know what Voight was going to do until he heard the address for himself.

To my knowledge, this is one of the only times in recent memory when a prominent public figure has been given airtime for a number of minutes to basically tell a sitting president off in what amounted to a well-deserved rebuke! In just three, short, succinct minutes, Voight communicated perfectly and steadfastly what millions upon millions of Americans have to be thinking about Obama by now, especially when you look at the appalling failure of the economy after Obama’s Bailoutpaloozas; the increase in terror attacks and attempts on the homeland in his first year; and the hateful, petty way Obama’s administration personally goes after private citizens whom it dislikes or feels threatened by.


Detroit – Clinton Township – Day 16 on the Tea Party Express

By: Andrea Shea King
The Radio Patriot

A couple of thousand folks from the Greater Detroit area turned out on this Sunday morning at the Civic Center Park and Historical Village in Clinton Township, giving a warm welcome to the Tea Party Express.

I took this photo from the stage — they cheered and raised their signs and flags when they saw me take out my camera! A handsome bunch, aren’t they?

From the Stage

Here are some more pix. The Rally is just about over, and we’re heading to Cleveland, Ohio for a 5 p.m. EDT rally at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds. Most likely we’ll be late arriving. We’re always running late! But the folks are always out there waiting for us! It’s amazing. Here are some more pics of our Detroit-area friends. They stand shoulder to shoulder with you in defending our Constitution and rescuing our country from the clutches of the Communists in the White House.

And now it’s on to Cleveland. We’ll be doing our Radio Show tonight at 9 p.m. EDT. Join us! http://BlogTalkRadio.com/ASKShow

Tea Party Express Rally in Clinton Township

Sunday – 10:00 AM – Civic Center Park

The national Tea Party Express (website: www.TeaPartyExpress.org) motorcade is coming to the Greater Detroit Metro Area this Sunday, April 11th for a major tea party rally at the Civic Center Park & Historical Village located in Clinton Township.

40700 Romeo Plank Rd
Clinton Township, MI

The Tea Party Express is holding 10 tea party rallies across Michigan as part of this national tour – far more tea parties in the Great Lake State than any other state across the nation.

Thousands of people turned out for Saturday’s Tea Party Express rallies in Traverse City and Grand Rapids.

“Michigan is one of the top focuses for the Tea Party Express as we approach the November 2010 elections, just ask Bart Stupak,” said Mark Williams, Chairman of the Tea Party Express.

The Tea Party Express held 5 rallies in Congressman Bart Stupak’s district (a 6th if you count Traverse City, which is not in the district, but the media market does serve the district) in addition to the launch of a $250,000 “Defeat Bart Stupak” TV and radio ad campaign.

Stupak saved the tea party movemnt $200,000 by announcing his retirement within days of the launch of the campaign, allowing the Tea Party Express to halt expenditures after just over $50,000 had been spent on the effort.

“Bart Stupak was the first target in Michigan for the Tea Party Express. But, sadly, there are many more tax-spend-bailout politicians throughout the state who need to receive a pink slip in the November elections,” Williams said.

Fast as wheels can turn, we’re hitting the stops in Michigan’s 1st District

By: Andrea Shea King
The Radio Patriot

We set out at o’dark thirty this morning from the hotel in downtown Sault Ste. Marie for a 25-minute trip to Cheboygan. The day was just dawning to our left as we approached the five-mile long Mackinac (pronounced Mackinaw) span over Lakes Michigan and Huron that connects the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan. There’s still snow on the ground up here in the northern tier, which is just a short hop into Canada. It feels like winter, with temps in the 30’s. Brrrr….. Can’t get warm enough or coffee’d up enough.

Cheboygan is an attractive little town with an old fashioned Main Street and period lamp posts. A gazebo sits at the center of a small park, where this morning some 200 Cheboygans assembled for an 8 a.m. “whistle stop” (abbreviated rally show). And chilly Cheboygan gave the Tea Party Express a warm greeting.

Jimmy Labriola

Jimmy Labriola, the comedian, joined our team last night and will travel with us for the rest of the trip, which is now at Day 15. He had two minutes to make an impression and he did.

The crowd loved his jokes. “Benny”, the “hardware store owner” on the TV series “Home Improvement” was a hit, even at 8:30 on a cold and grey Cheboygan morning. Before he went on, I asked him why he decided to tour with us. “Because I wanted to experience this and I’m worried about the country,” he said. We’re glad he’s onboard. It will make what is already an amazing trip even that much more fun. He was a hit at last night’s team dinner too. Did you see it? We livestreamed and took your chat questions!

Back to Cheboygan… There was a man walking around with large flags on poles. He was balancing a half dozen of them over his shoulder. He stopped to watch the performers onstge in the gazebo. “Nice flags,” I said. He turned to me and began telling his story.

Jeffrey Allan McQueen’s car with the USRevolution2 Flag

Jeffrey Allan McQueen of Rochester, Michigan was an auto worker, until two years ago when he was laid off… since then, he’s become involved in the Tea Party movement, following the Tea Party Express and selling a flag he designed especially for these times. His flags can be seen at almost every tea party, and is fast becoming recognized as the symbol of the grassroots movement.

Jeffrey Allan McQueen – USRevolution2.com

It features the familiar Red and White Stripes, but the field of blue with white stars carries a design reminiscent of the colonial era. Thirteen stars encircle a Roman Numeral II at the center. The significance, according to McQueen is doublefold: the thirteen stars represent the Last Supper when a foundation of love was laid for all mankind. The number also represents the original colonies and how they formed a foundation of liberty based on God’s laws. The numeral II represents the Second Revolution of the United States. The American-made flags are $20. $19.95 if you order them, plus shipping charge. They’re already attached to a wooden dowel, perfect for Tea Party rallies. You can find out more by hitting his site at USRevolution2.com

McQueen is following the Tea Party Express as it makes its way through 11 stops in as many cities in Michigan. He’s got an interesting story to tell. And if we can, we’ll let him tell it on Sunday night’s radio show.


We just finished another “whistle stop” in Petosky, a popular resort area on Lake Michigan. Quite a large crowd there! I met a man who’s running for Congress. Tom Stillings, originally from Billerica, Massachusetts, went to college in Michigan and stayed for a lifetime. He’s a conservative running for Stupak’s seat, along with Don Belishek, an MD, both of them “newbies” to the political office. There are at least three candidates so far who are vying for Michigan’s 1st District seat in Congress.

Emmet-Charlevoix County Fairgrounds, Petosky, MI


A big rally in Traverse City, known best for its cherries. It’s the cherry capital of the world, according to local expert on all things Michigan and State Tea Party Coordinator Joan Fabiano. Joan is on board to talk to the Michiganders about “taking Michigan back from the politicians and the progressive policies that have brought Michigan to the brink of economic ruin by identifying conservative candidates, helping them on their campaigns with their time and money, getting involved in their local county parties and become precinct delegates, identify people within their local country party who share our core conservative values. If they do, support them. If they don’t, replace them. And finally, take Michigan back by asserting her sovereignty.”

Grand Traverse Civic Center Pavilion, Traverse City, MI

The weather is considerably warmer here than the Upper Peninsula, and folks have turned out by the hundreds. In fact, some estimates say there are between 1,000 and 1500 concerned Michiganders here, carrying signs and waving flags.

Several local candidates for the 1st District have been included in the program. Linda Goldthorpe and Tom Stillings — names you’ll want to remember. Others who are vying for the seat include Don Benishek, and Donald (?) Cooper.


Cristina Corbin, a reporter with Fox News. com is traveling with us this afternoon. She writes exclusively for FNC’s online website, and says she files an average of three stories a day. When asked her impression of the Tea Party Express tour, she said she was amazed at the amount of on the ground coordination and work an operation like this requires. You can read Cristina’s reports at FoxNews.com.


A quick nap while we drove to Big Rapids where arrived over an hour late, but there they were, about a hundred of our faithful American brothers and sisters, holding the American flag, waiting to welcome us. (Unfortunately I didn’t get any pics at this stop. My brain was fuzzy from sleep, and I had left my camera inside the bus. Duh.)

Amy Kremer and Joe Wierzbicki handed me a megaphone and asked me to sing God Bless America. OMG! I had just awoken and despite a swig of bottled water before we stepped outside, my throat was dry. But it didn’t matter, because I asked them all to join me in raising their voices. Afterwards, I went into the crowd and shook as many hands as possible, thanking them for coming out and loving America enough to stand there in the grey day. It was enough to bring me to tears… they all looked so expectant and hopeful that we were going to do what we said we’d do — take back America. I pray we will. It would break my heart to disappoint these fine men and women, our fellow Americans.


Next stop – Grand Rapids, an hour away. Got a phone call from “Loki”, a fellow Blog Talk Radio talk show host, who is already there, seated three rows behind the podium. Blue ball cap. Watch for him. I told him I’m the one wearing a straw hat – the only one who looks like Florida.


The plane crash in Russia that killed Poland’s president and 96 others, including his wife and many high ranking military members, seems very suspicious. Among the folks on the Reagan Blue Bus, we’re all of a mind that this doesn’t pass the smell test.


The rally at Grand Rapids was super. Well attended, and well received. Victoria Jackson joined us and gave one of her funniest performances to date. She’s a big hit with the crowds, and will be a huge asset to us for the rest of the tour. She comes across as a daffy blonde, Gracie Allen style, but trust me when I tell you, this gal’s focused, grounded, and whip smart. And she loves God and country.

Victoria Jackson entertains the crowd – “There’s a Communist Living in the White House!”

Kevin “Lucy I’m Home”, a listener of mine was there too, and it was great to meet them both.

Kevin (aka “Lucy, I’m Home”), one of my radio show listeners can be seen in the blue shirt and maroon ballcap, lower left side.

Blog Talk Radio host and constitutional expert Loki (Tim Kerlin) was there with his wife (ouch! forgot her name!)


After the rally CNN’s Shannon Travis joined us on the Reagan Blue Bus and spent the hourlong ride from Grand Rapids to Lansing interviewing us about what it’s like to be on the road. Then the conversation turned to our involvement in the Tea Party. It was a bit surreal to see Jon Voight’s image on the flat panel TV, talking about the Tea Party movement on the Huckabee Show while we were here talking with a CNN reporter about it.

TPX team member Bryan Barton talks to CNN reporter Shannon Travis


After a long day, we wrapped things up with a Grand Finale on the Michigan State Capitol Steps in Lansing, just a stone’s throw from the offices of Gov. liberal democrat Jennifer Granholm. Michiganders are going to vote her out. And their Attorney General Mike Cox is helping.
