Urgent Open Letter to Tea Party & Related Leaders & Organizers

From: Gulag Bound

Please send this e-letter to all Tea Party leaders and activists that you know. Also send it to those top-down entities which support and seek to influence them. Then, let us watch what they do, to see who they are.

You are also encouraged to repost this time critical appeal in blogs and forums.

———————————————————————-

Dear Tea Party, Liberty & Sovereignty Movement Leader,

Election after election, Planned Parenthood spends millions promoting the worst of the budget bursting, radically progressive politicians. And each time, they use our own tax dollars against us. Oh, they say the funds are restricted, but we know federal subsidies mean they can use much more money on elections.

This is a critical and definitively fiscal issue. This is the worst kind of the spending abuse our Tea Party rallies to fight.

We know that overall, Planned Parenthood is ACORN, is SEIU, is Media Matters, is Organizing for America, is Democratic Socialists of America — they operate in goose step — but for PP, our tax money is blood money, and their methods are racism, eugenics, and child abuse, even to the length of supporting child trafficking.

And no true tea party patriot wants our money confiscated to fund the corrupt abortion machine revealed in undercover videos. Lila Rose’ Live Action shows Planned Parenthood consistently willing to perform abortion on minors, even in child sex rings, who are statutorily raped and brought in, to destroy the evidence.

Ms. Rose, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, and others have appealed to the Tea Party, to help.

This is our chance to stop this progressive death pork. There is no time to lose. The Pence Amendment must pass both Houses of Congress within this current Continuing Resolution. We ask you to take these basic steps in our Defund Planned Parenthood Flash Campaign:

1. Take personal responsibility in the call to defund.
2. Contact your Congressional offices (found here).
3. Present this call to action to the volunteers with whom you work.
4. Present it to the other organizers and leaders you know.

We believe you understand something else. This presents a very important means of assuring cohesiveness in the Tea Party – Liberty – Sovereignty movement. We can generate the power of unity in this critical matter for both fiscal and social conservatives, as we all prepare to work together for 2012. So, rally your fellow patriots with us, as soon as possible!

Also, please email me at [email protected] to let me know you are on board, or to discuss our simple Flash Campaign.

We will not let this opportunity pass. Will you join in and make the difference?

In your service and along with Christen Varley, Jack Cashill, Anita MonCrief, C. Steven Tucker, and the great, growing number of organizers and activists,

Is There a Frighteningly Simple Explanation For This?

By: Trevor Loudon

From the Washington Times:

The Obama administration is poised to ban offshore oil drilling on the outer continental shelf until 2012 or beyond. Meanwhile, Russia is making a bold strategic leap to begin drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. While the United States attempts to shift gears to alternative fuels to battle the purported evils of carbon emissions, Russia will erect oil derricks off the Cuban coast…

Now Russia is using oil exploration to establish a new presence in the Western Hemisphere. It recently concluded four contracts securing oil-exploration rights in Cuba’s economic zone in the Gulf of Mexico. A Russian-Cuban joint partnership will exploit oil found in the deep waters of the Gulf.

Cuba has rights to the area in which drilling will be conducted under an agreement the Carter administration recognized. From Russia’s perspective, this is another way to gain leverage inside what traditionally has been America’s sphere of influence. It may not be as dramatic as the Soviet Union attempting to use Cuba as a missile platform, but in the energy wars, the message is the same. Russia is projecting power into the Western Hemisphere while the United States retreats. The world will not tolerate a superpower that acts like a sidekick much longer.

Just which side is Barack Obama On?

Must Read: Arab Communists Meet – Plan Major Changes for Middle East

By: Trevor Loudon
New Zeal

Representatives of several Arab communist parties met in Beirut on the 18th and 19th of February in an Arab Left Forum meeting organized by the Lebanese Communist Party.

Arab Left Forum, February 2011

The urgent meeting was called to coordinate communist response to the wave of revolutions sweeping much of the Arab World. If successfully implemented, the decisions laid out at this meeting will affect not just the Middle East, but the entire planet.

Some excerpts from the statement issued by the Exceptional Meeting of the Arab Left Forum, with emphasis added.

These two revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt have formed a qualitative jump in the Arab political life, as they have demonstrated that progressive change is possible. Indeed these two revolutions have shown that victory over despotic regimes characterized by oppression, exploitation, impoverishment of the people, complete subservience of national economies to the IMF and the World bank, and complete subservience of their policies to the Imperial – Zionist project in the region – is also possible. And so we witness the winds of change shaking the thrones of the rulers of Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Algeria and Libya amongst other Arab Countries as well.

The mass movement and militancy that we are witnessing has opened up a new horizon for the Arab world. A horizon created through the struggle of the youth and the workers of Tunisia and Egypt, and with significant and effective participation by Arab women. This raises the opportunity and the challenge for the forces of the Arab Left to unify themselves under a program for democratic and social change with two main and related tasks.

Firstly, such a program is necessary to confront reactionary internal forces attempting to exploit the mass popular awakening in Egypt and Tunisia in order to serve their own agendas which does not entail any radical change from the current status in the Arab world. On the contrary, these reactionary agendas would reproduce the same regimes albeit in a novel shape and form.

Secondly, such a program for the unification of the Arab left forces is also necessary to effectively confront the Imperialist American plots and Zionist occupation and assaults under a banner for real and effective change.

In the current revolutionary moment we are witnessing, the Arab leftist forces and parties gathered in Beirut decided to entitle their exceptional meeting, The Martyrs of the Tunisian and Egyptian Revolution and the Other Arab Intifadas. Those present agreed on the following :

1. The Arab Left Forum in its exceptional meeting stressed its support and backing, and the backing of the Arab left parties, to the Revolutions of Tunisia and Egypt and reiterated that these revolutions were an inevitable conclusion to the accumulation of years of struggle beginning from the late seventies of the last century against these two regimes characterized by dictatorship corruption and subservience to USA. Those gathered also extended their respectful salutes to the martyrs and the injured of the two revolutions – these youths who bravely and steadfastly stood up to confront and resist the blood-thirsty regimes and their tools for torture, oppression and domination.

Those gathered also saluted the martyrs of the other Arab popular intifadas against the oppressive regimes of Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Libya and Kuwait. Finally, the Forum also extended its salutes to the martyrs of the resistance in Palestine and Lebanon.

The forum decided to organize future activities to call for the liberation of all political prisoners in the Arab world and for the liberation of Palestinian, Syrian and other Arab prisoners in the Zionist Jails.

2. The first task of the Arab Left forces today is to strengthen and consolidate the revolutionary moment that our region is witnessing. This revolutionary moment should further be radicalized through an agreement on a program for change where methodological linkages will be made between the struggle for liberation and independence and the struggle for democratic and social change. This programme is based on the stance and position of the left in effecting such an internal change, and in resisting occupation and imperialist aggression headed as usual by the USA and the Zionist movement.

This notion for national resistance movements imparts on these movements a liberation dimension which in turn lays the foundation for a new Arab liberation movement where the struggle for internal change against the despotic regimes is linked with the struggle against Occupation and Israeli – Imperialist plots. This struggle then aims to achieve national, secular, democratic systems of governance which would also resist occupation and confront American and Zionist policies and plots. Such a system of governance would also resist and confront neo-liberal economic policies.

Within this context, the Forum reasserted its determination to hold another meeting devoted to discuss the developments of the international economic crisis and its consequences on the Arab countries in order to elaborate an alternative vision with a socialist dimension.

3. The Arab Left Forum reasserts the fundamental and paramount importance of the Palestinian causes which was and remains the central issue of the Arab-Zionist struggle. An effective confrontation of Zionist plots necessitates the:

  • Reunification of the Palestinian forces,
  • Resuscitating the work of the PLO system along democratic lines,
  • Reaffirming the Palestinian rights including the right of the Palestinian people to having an independent country in their homeland with Jerusalem as its capital and the right of return of Palestinian refugees according to UN resolution 194. The Arab Left Forum also asserts that the path for the liberation of Palestine can only be achieved through resistance in all its forms.

The Forum also strongly condemned the American policies which are against the rights of the Palestinian people, the latest of which was the American Veto in the UN Security Council against the condemnation of the Israeli policies of settlements and Israeli policies of ethnic cleansing…

6. The forum stressed and recognized the fundamental role of the youth in the revolutions of Tunisia and Egypt and in the other Arab intifadas.

This necessitates on the forces of the left to present itself as the true supporters of the ambitions of the youth and their dreams. This can be achieved through the inclusion of the youth demands, concerns and ambitions for change within the programs of the left forces and parties. In this manner, the left can reclaim its position and role amongst the Arab youth.

The Forum stressed the need to carry out an evaluation of previous programmes and to develop a programme for work amongst the youth and the students, the most important pillars of which must be:

  • The development of leftist youth and student cadres and to support and enrich their struggle experiences for democracy, public freedoms and social justice, and
  • Give these youth cadres a bigger and more prominent role in the leadership committees of the left parties. This would help achieve the goal of launching and building a real alternative based on change and liberation that would be a real and effective change from the current regimes of oppression and subservience and based on resistance to the occupation and confrontation to the American Israeli Imperialist plots.

Along these lines, those gathered reiterated and reasserted the decision from the previous meeting, to hold a leftist Arab youth camp under the banner of The Role of the Youth in Social Revolutions and in Resisting Occupation. It is planned to hold this meeting in Beirut between 14 and 20 September 2011 to coincide with the 29th anniversary of the launching of the Lebanese National Resistance Front with the aim of becoming a regular annual event.

7. The forum agreed to develop a common media plan with a maximum period of one month. Such a plan will take into account the ways to benefit from modern communication tools in the struggle being carried out by the forces of the left. It was also agreed to link the websites of the various parties and forces participating in the forum. In addition it was agreed to develop a plan for an Arab leftist media center and develop a plan or a leftist leaning Arab TV station.

8. The forum agreed to consider the forthcoming date of Sunday 20th March as an Arab day for protesting against the brutal oppressive policies and the policies of widespread abject poverty, alienation and subservience – all of which are policies adopted and strictly followed by the Arab regimes.

9. The forum considered that the paper submitted by the Lebanese communist party and the final statement issued by the first meeting of the forum as working papers to be used as a starting point in the drafting of a programme for change.

Does this all sound like “democracy” is coming to the Middle East?

Change is coming alright – the kind of change that came to Russia in 1917, China in 1949, Cuba in 1959, Iran in 1979 and Venezuela in 1999.

As the Arab Left Forum statement admits, “these revolutions were an inevitable conclusion to the accumulation of years of struggle beginning from the late seventies of the last century… ”

These are not spontaneous revolutions – they are the culmination of years, even decades of patient subversion.

In a few years, maybe even less, most of North Africa and the Middle East (including Saudi Arabia and Iraq) will, on current patterns, be controlled by Arab communists and their Muslim Brotherhood minions, working hand in glove with Russia, China, Cuba, Iran and Venezuela against Israel and the U.S.

If this allowed to play out, $10 or $20 a gallon gas won’t be the big issue. National survival will be.

Union Bosses to Obama Aide: “This is a Defining Moment”

By: Trevor Loudon
New Zeal

From the Communist Party USA’s Peoples World:

“AFL-CIO leaders have told a top aide to Democratic President Barack Obama that the current fight in states over workers’ rights is “a defining moment” Obama must use to discuss the future of the country and of workers.

Fire Fighter’s President Harold Schaitberger delivered that message to Obama senior advisor David Plouffe during a March 1 “working lunch” at the AFL-CIO Executive Council meeting in Washington.

Over sandwiches, potato chips, soda and coffee, toted into the council’s meeting room, the union leaders told Plouffe that insistent demands by Govs. Scott Walker, R-Wis., and John Kasich, R-Ohio, to eliminate collective bargaining for state and local workers are similar to Ronald Reagan’s firing of the Air Traffic Controllers 30 years ago.

But while Reagan used PATCO’s strike – over unsafe conditions – as “a signal that union-busting was fine,” Obama “stepped up to the plate with the governors” for union workers, Schaitberger said.

The council told Plouffe to thank Obama for that support, voiced publicly before the governors – minus Walker – and to urge him to continue it. Plouffe promised he would take that message back to the Oval Office.

“I don’t think it does anybody any good when public employees are derogated or vilified and their rights infringed upon,” Obama declared on Feb. 28. “We need to attract the best and the brightest to public service.” It was Obama’s second highly publicized pro-worker, pro-union statement since the struggle with Walker began.”
