TEA PARTY EXPRESS IV — MARC ALAN LEE EDITION

By: Dave Logan
ThirdWaveDave

Support THE TEA PARTY EXPRESS

DAY FIVE of the TPX IV tour ended on a high note with an exceptional rally in Phoenix, AZ. where Sarah Palin was a surprise speaker. Palin dropped by to say a few words to the gathered patriots, and afterwards she worked the rope line like few others can do. She’s the genuine article, I think. The crowds think so as well. Tour embed Andrea Shea King has coverage, including a slide show of the tour event.

DAY SIX brings the tour to Las Cruces, NM — 12 noon; and then on to El Paso, TX — 4:30 PM. If you’re not in the area, you can attend via Liberty.com’s “live” streaming on your computer. I attended Day Five’s rally with Liberty.com and it’s the next best thing to being there.

Below you’ll see a video tribute to Navy Seal Marc Alan Lee. Marc was the first Navy Seal to be killed in Iraq, and his Gold Star mom Debbie Lee pays tribute to him at each of the rally stops. It’s a heart-wrenching story of how her son found himself in a fire fight with the enemy, and with one of his team members down and seriously wounded, Marc did what Seals are trained to do: put themselves in harm’s way to get help to their downed team member… at all costs.

On that day, the cost was as high as it gets. Marc stood in the line of fire — not once, but twice — so his team members could get to the wounded Seal. During this operation, Marc was mortally wounded. Although Marc Alan Lee is gone from this life, Debbie Lee keeps his memory alive so everyone can understand what these brave, skilled, and unrelenting warriors are willing to do so that we can enjoy our freedoms back at home. His story is compelling, only to be topped by his final letter home. One day I hope Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee will find time to put this story into book form, and then possibly a talented script writer will bring it to the silver screen. One day.

Read about Marc Alan Lee — then tearfully wander through his final letter home. Marc Alan Lee sits comfortably at the Lord’s table — he’s in very good hands. And remember this: Terrorists DID NOT take Marc’s life; he gave it willingly… for us and his Seal team members. Rest peacefully, our hero.

Many days remain for the TPX tour, many rallies yet to go. Please take the time to check the TPX tour schedule for a rally in your area. If you can’t make a rally, be sure to watch at Liberty.com. And please CONTRIBUTE as much as you can to this effort. Encourage others as well. Taking back America is very expensive and whatever you can contribute will be used in the most effective way possible. We’re in this together; all of us must do our part — big or small, do something.

Again, visit some of the blogs that are doing their part to spread the news of the TPX tour: Barbara at American Freedom; Terresa Monroe-Hamilton at NoisyRoom; Melanie Morgan.com; John Ruberry at Marathon Pundit. And if I’ve missed someone, please email me and I’ll include you on this list too. Your assistance makes this tour all the more effective. The TPX crew thanks you. America thanks you too.

LIBERTY.COM has some great vids from some tour stops, plus interviews. Great work.

UPDATES will fall in below as events happen. Andrea Shea King will be reporting from the road.

Pat Boone – The Temperature is Rising

By: Andrea Shea King
The Radio Patriot

Tea Party Express coordinator Joe Wierzbicki sent this to us this morning with the following:

“ENJOY!”

The Temperature is Rising

There’s a fever abroad in the land. It’s viral. It’s heating up. And it’s definitely contagious.

The upcoming election may be like lancing a boil. It won’t necessarily heal the contagion, but it can release the pressure, expose the underlying wound … and maybe point the way toward healing.

I joined the Tea Party Express tour Thursday night, at an outdoor event in the parking lot at the Rose Bowl, in Pasadena. There were flags waving and several hundred citizens cheering, as the bus rolled in from Las Vegas, where another event had supported Sharron Angle for Harry Reid’s Senate seat.

The doors opened and several hardworking tech guys came off first and quickly set up lights and sound. Then the stirring recorded patriotic music began, and in short order a succession of country and pop singers and musicians lit up the night, the crowd of just plain folks, old and young, singing along when they could and waving their own flags in rhythm.

Pat Boone offers foreword to vital new book on economy: “Crashing the Dollar: How to Survive a Global Currency Collapse”

A number of speakers took the stage, like Andrew Breitbart, the producer who fostered the exposure of corruption in ACORN, the feminist talk-show host Tammy Bruce, and the exciting black artist and author Lloyd Marcus. There were several other national and local conservative leaders … and yours truly.

102 Liberal Democrats Could Face Defeat on November 2nd

On Friday we here at the Tea Party Express completed an election analysis and have now identified 102 Liberal Democrats in Congress who could face defeat on November 2nd.

Thus, we are spending this weekend expanding our campaign target list and utilizing more financial resources to accomplish what could be one of the most historic election upsets in this nation’s history.

Friends, we could potentially reshape Congress and America in a dramatic and dynamic way. The only thing that will hold us back now is money. We have 11 days – just 11 days to make our final push in these critical races. We need every constitutional conservative in America to step forward and make a contribution to the Tea Party Express Congressional Election Fund ASAP.

Please – pitch in. Ask your conservative friends or family members to match your contribution. Forward this email to everyone you can.

Please support this effort by making a contribution online – HERE.

To those of you who can contribute a larger amount of $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500 – or up to the maximum allowed contribution of $5,000 per individual (married couples can contribute $5,000 each for a total of $10,000) – please help us out. We’re running out of time in this campaign, and yet we still have so much to do.

We here at the Tea Party Express will pledge to work morning, noon and night through Election Day. We just need your support to help achieve a historic result!

Again to contribute online – JUST CLICK HERE.

If you prefer you can also mail in a contribution to our headquarters:

WikiLeaks: Everything you always wanted to know about the New York Times, but thought might make you sick

From: Bookworm Room

If you haven’t already, please read Steve Schippert’s guest post on this blog about the animating anti-American forces driving WikiLeaks. If you don’t have time to click on over, here’s the money quote:

Wikileaks is a small cabal of people who, in their own site description, “Publishes and comments on leaked documents alleging government and corporate misconduct.”

In reality, what they are is a like-minded gathering of hardcore Leftists who see their greatest enemies and threats as the American military and intelligence coupled with free market capitalism.
