ROOT JOINS PALIN FOR “SHOWDOWN IN SEARCHLIGHT”
Wayne Allyn Root, former Vice Presidential Nominee,
Bestselling Author, FOX News Guest, and Newsmax Columnist
Will Speak at Tea Party Express Event in Searchlight, NV
Wayne Allyn Root, a nationally recognized Libertarian-conservative political leader, speaker, author and television personality based in Las Vegas has agreed to speak at the Tea Party Express event in Searchlight on March 27th. Root’s column appears at Newsmax.com, America’s most popular conservative web site, with over 6 million visitors per month. Root’s column is entitled “Wayne Allyn Root- Tea Party Patriot.”
Root, who calls himself a “Reagan Libertarian” was the 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee, as well as the author of the Amazon best-seller “The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gambling & Tax Cuts.” The book has been an Amazon bestseller in the category of “Libertarian books” for 7 months.
Root, a regular guest on FOX News and FOX Business said,
“What an honor to be invited to speak at the first stop of the cross-country Tea Party Express. This Tea Party movement is the start of a new American Revolution. I am proud to be fighting it alongside patriots such as Sarah Palin. It’s time for the citizens to take back their government. I am proud to call myself a citizen politician from the great state of Nevada.”
“Perhaps it took a small businessman, son of a butcher, homeschool dad, and Las Vegas oddsmaker turned Vice Presidential nominee to predict the birth of this movement. Long before there was any Tea Party, my book predicted a citizen revolution made up of concerned and outraged taxpayers, conservatives, Libertarians, independents, Christians, gun owners, small business owners, smaller government advocates, and anti-tax enthusiasts. That moment and movement has arrived.”

The Arab lobby has taken over from the long time powerhouse Brit lobby for giving us BAD advice. The Saudi-led Arab lobby has been funding our universities, shmoozing the Washington elite, and suckering the gullible New York Times with money they reap from our dependence on their oil. And they have achieved surprising success, considering that 15 of the 19 terrorists who attacked the Twin Towers were Saudis.
Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal donated $20 million each to Harvard and Georgetown Universities “to promote interfaith understanding.” For Georgetown, the gift was the second-largest ever received. Cornell University, Stanford University, and Texas A&M University are partnering with a Saudi university, lured by one of the world’s largest supercomputers (guess where the money for that came from).
Charming (as a snake is charming) Saudi ambassador to the US Adel al Jubeir (appointed 2007) has been shaping the American dialog since 9-11. As the Saudi foreign policy advisor he was Time‘s Person of the Week in December 2002 after visiting Charlie Rose, PBS Neshour, ABC Nightline, and Fox News in one day, was again a guest on Charlie Rose in 2003, charmed CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in 2004 and captivated Blitzer again in 2005, was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from the University of North Texas in 2006, hosted a glittering reception at the Saudi’s American embassy in 2007, mesmerized Christian and Jewish leaders with an interfaith conference in 2008, and continues to entrain decision-makers in Washington, DC.
King Abdullah pulled out all the stops for Hillary Clinton’s February visit:
RAWDAT KHURAYIM, Saudi Arabia — The king of Saudi Arabia had Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton over for a friendly lunch Monday here at his desert camp, northeast of Riyadh. In a gesture of informality, King Abdullah reached for his remote control and switched on a giant flat-screen TV as soon as they sat down to eat at the vast horseshoe-shaped table.
With sports scores and highlights from a soccer match blaring from the screen, the king and Mrs. Clinton chatted over a buffet of lamb, rice, hummus and other dishes. At times, they lapsed into silence and stared at the TV, which, as if on cue, covered Mrs. Clinton’s visit to Saudi Arabia….
He sent his ultra-luxurious tour bus to pick up Mrs. Clinton at the airport for the hour-long drive to his camp. The foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, regaled her with jokes and stories about camels on the way….
And so it goes. Not everyone is taken in. The New York Post carries this article today — The Arab lobby, Racking up the victories:
The legend of the Jewish lobby’s influence over US policies continues to grow — even as the Arab lobby, led by the Saudis, keeps racking up successes.
With petrodollars and tender loving care spent lavishly on universities, ex-diplomats, PR firms and gullible journalists, the Arab Lobby constantly pushes two contradictory story lines:
* Arabs seek peace with Israel.
* There’s no place for a Jewish state in the Middle East.
This week, Saudi-led Arab countries have convinced Western reporters that they’re advancing the peace process with Israel. Meanwhile, universities in America, Canada, Europe and the Arab world are marking “Israeli Apartheid Week” — a vile campaign meant to return the “Zionism is racism” equation to the top of the world’s agenda….
And then there’s our good old Rudy Giuliani, who rejected a $10 million Saudi donation because it came with a revisionist storyline attached:
Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Thursday the city would not accept a $10 million donation for disaster relief from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal after the Prince suggested U.S. policies in the Middle East contributed to the September 11 attacks.
“I entirely reject that statement,” Giuliani said. “There is no moral equivalent for this [terrorist] act. There is no justification for it. The people who did it lost any right to ask for justification for it when they slaughtered 4,000 or 5,000 innocent people.”
As citizens, we need to be extremely alert to both the overt and the subtle influences that shape our thinking and form the world-views of our children in the nation’s schools. In this, the mainstream media and our school systems have largely failed us. Until we can reform these moribund institutions, we must keep informed ourselves and make an intense effort to educate our own children against undue influence.

Artists 4 Israel Counter Anti-Israel Propaganda through Education
Hip Hop artists and graffiti virtuosos from New York painting their way throughout Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Sderot? Who’d a thunk it, but it appears that a new organization called Artists 4 Israel will be doing just that. Founded about a year ago following Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, young artists in the New York area had just about enough of the incessant anti-Israel propaganda being spewed forth by the “politically correct” denizens of the radically left-wing enclaves that figure so prominently in the eclectic world of the New York artist and decided to do something about it.
Taking a courageously bold stance in their support for Israel, a cadre of young artists led by New York artists Craig Dershowitz, Tara Lyn Gordon and Seth Wolfson and several others were determined to debunk the ubiquitous myths that circulate about Israel being a racist, apartheid state and a callous war machine bent on the destruction of its enemies. Thus, Artists 4 Israel was born as an umbrella organization for graffiti and street artists, alternative poets and playwrights, hip hop musicians, modern dance troupes, photographers, sculptors and rap chanteurs to express their support for Israel as an open and free pluralistic society that fosters artistic license and expression. Through the implementation of highly inventive educational modalities as well as original street theater and other creative outlets they have succeeded in opening the hearts and minds of a new generation.
“Hamas started a culture war. We decided to be pro-active rather than defensive. Artists 4 Israel is the offense. Rather than countering the misconceptions, lies and hate preached by the terrorist funded Hamas culture war against Israel, A4I utilizes the arts to tell our own stories and create our own narratives highlighting the rights, beauty and strength of Israel”, intoned Craig Dershowitz, a founding member of the group.
For the last year, this seminal movement of collective artists and culture warriors has virtually exploded within the parameters of the chic art scene by “creating their own narrative” and garnering support in the bastions of the downtown art gallery world. “When the war in Gaza broke out, our artists started painting really great signs for the pro-Israel demonstrations that were held and people took notice of the fact that our signs were way more powerful than those of Israel’s detractors. Subsequently, we held a pro-Israel art gallery showing in Manhattan that drew close to 500 people and 85% of those in attendance were contemporary artists under the age of 30. It was then that we knew that Artists 4 Israel could really have a major impact in the liberal arts community”, said Mr. Dershowitz
Other awareness initiatives began soon thereafter including “The Keffiyah Exchange Program” which was modeled on the NYPD’s Cash for Guns program. While the keffiyah fashion craze has gripped the artists community, many in the Jewish world are disturbed by the jihadist symbolism that it represents. As such, Artists 4 Israel is offering “Free Stuff for Stupid Scarves” in partnership with a number of clothing brands, bars and restaurants and is giving away gifts to anyone who gives up their keffiyah at any of their drop off locations.
In order to spotlight the brutal oppression of women by male hegemonies in Islamic countries, Ariists 4 Israel
has created a campaign to “dress down radical Islam” by sending out their own civilian cops or “fashion police” to hand out what appears to be tickets to immodesty dressed women on New York’s most populous streets. In actuality, these tickets are postcards addressed to the Saudi Arabian embassy in Washington, DC protesting their nation’s treatment of women as inherently inferior beings. The A4I web site says, “Israel is a country of many freedoms, including equal rights and protection for women. By contrasting these liberties with the oppression and subjugation practiced by Israel’s neighbors Artists 4 Israel demonstrates the strength of Israel’s democracy”.
Empowering and educating young artists is also a major tenet of Artists 4 Israel and as such the group conducts programs on high school and college campuses. Artists 4 Israel teaches students that they have the power to use their individual talents and creativity to become advocates of their chosen causes. A4I offers practical guidance and leadership training to help students affect change.”What makes our organization effective is the fact that we are totally inclusive and we reach out to everyone, irrespective of religion, race or nationality. While we are an advocacy group for Israel, we are non-political and we do not take stances on issues pertaining to the conflicts between religious and non-religious factions in Israel or the disparity of viewpoints between the left wing or right wing parties”, said Mr. Dershowitz.
The highlight of this year’s A4I activities will take place from April 24th until May 2nd, when Artists 4 Israel will be sending some of America’s most famous street and graffiti artists to Israel on their “Murality” project. Murality joins the words “mural” and “morality” to display an ideal of justice within and through art. “Israel is a country that is predicated on the highest levels of morality and ethics” said Mr. Dershowitz and “we want our artists (who are not Jewish) to experience this first hand.”
The artists will be traveling to Sderot, Kiryat Gat, Herzliyah, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv to battle terror and rockets with messages of unity and peace. In Sderot and Kiryat Gat the artists will be conducting art therapy classes with the children of these war torn communities who often experience post-traumatic stress disorder. These children and the entire community will join with the artists to transform the grim reminders of terrorism into soaring masterpieces of freedom and expression. While in Sderot, they will paint bomb shelters, Chabad’s rocket defense walls, army bases, the Jewish National Fund’s Indoor Recreational Center and Ateret Esther, the only school not fully protected from rocket attacks. In Kiryat Gat they will transform bombed out buildings into living art installations. In Jerusalem, they will design murals for “The Story of Hope”, a haven for Jewish women trapped in abusive relationships with Arab partners. In Tel Aviv, the artists will organize a large scale art exhibit of their works for the entire community in one day.
“Our art ambassadors will be painting from the time they wake up in the morning until the time they go to bed”, said Mr. Dershowitz. We want them to maximize their time and efforts as the artists hope to share their gift with as many of Israel’s residents and organizations as possible” he continued. Artists 4 Israel has also attracted the attention of Israeli performance artists including Meital Dohan, a leading actress in the Showtime series “Weeds”, who contacted A4I indicating her interest in becoming involved in this endeavor and has been chosen to be the official spokesperson for the “Murality” project in Israel.
“It is our fervent hope that this trip to Israel will prove that America’s avantgarde arts community supports Israel by sharing a message of hope and peace from America to Israel” said Mr. Dershowitz.

What have past acts of destruction taught us about what will happen to mankind after the apocalypse? Is it inevitable that disaster will someday strike America on an unprecedented level? How has history prepared us? History’s most dramatic events–Hiroshima, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and others–are examined and analyzed with hard data gathered from their massive aftereffects. The disappearance of water and food supplies, the effects of deteriorated sanitation and health care on the remaining population, and the increased use of violence as a means of survival–all illustrate how societies have responded and survived.
