Sen. Lindsey Graham is Sponsoring a Bill That Will Result in a National Anti-gun Database
Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert
Friday, May 15, 2009
Do you know what your supposedly "Republican" senator is
doing right now?
Well, it turns out that Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is also
leading the "hit parade" on behalf of legislation which would
expand the scope of government in a way unprecedented in human history
-- and which would place your most private medical data into an
Hard to believe?
But there he is: Sen. Graham is right up there with certifiable
liberals like left wing Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden and left wing
Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow.
The bill is S. 391, and it is being pushed by some Republicans as an
alternative to the Health Care Gun Ban that we've been warning you
S. 391 does a hodgepodge of things, but by far the most important one
is to "solve" the problem of 48 million uninsured by taking
away the right of Americans not to purchase government-approved
If you are uninsured, you would have to buy health insurance, whether
you can afford it or not. If your employer is not unionized, he would
have to retool your employer-provided health insurance policy to comply
with government requirements.
If your employer cannot afford government-approved insurance with all
of the politically correct bells and whistles, too bad. His only legal
alternative is to fire you.
If you cannot afford government-approved insurance, too bad.
If you have to lose your home -- or your small business -- or your
kids' college fund -- in order to pay for government-approved
insurance, too bad.
And like the Massachusetts system on which it is modeled, the federally
mandated insurance would inexorably revolve around a federal database
of medical information that you could not opt out of.
So, remember when your kid's pediatrician asked him about your gun
collection? Or when you grandfather was diagnosed with a mental
disability which could disqualify him from owning a gun?
All of that will be in the federal database, which could be searched by
virtually anyone in the Department of Health and Human Services -- and
by BATF, by simple request.
And, although section 103 of S. 391 purports to allow you to keep the
coverage you have, all employer-provided insurance which you wish to
keep has to be rewritten to contain all the government-required
mandates -- or you're not allowed to keep it.
ACTION: Contact Senator Graham and urge him to remove his cosponsorship
from S. 391. Please use his webform at
to do so (you can copy and paste the following text or type your own).
----- Pre-written letter -----
Dear Senator Graham:
In connection with S. 391 -- the Wyden-Stabenow individual insurance
mandate -- apparently some people are under the delusional notion that
this bill is something other than the biggest government interference
in the private sector in American history.
This crazy bill would put government bureaucrats in the position of
dictating the contents of virtually every insurance policy in the
country -- with the sole conspicuous exception of unionized industries
with collective bargaining agreements.
This bill would result in all kinds of personal information being put
into a medical database. Across the nation, there have been reports
that pediatricians are asking kids about their parents' gun collection.
And military veterans who have been diagnosed with PTSD have already
been disqualified from owning guns.
All of this information will be in the federal database, which could be
searched by virtually anyone in the Department of Health and Human
Services -- and by the FBI and the BATFE, by simple request.
Please do not saddle America with a massive open-ended bill like S. 391.
In short, please remove your cosponsorship from S. 391.

TRANS TEXAS CORRIDOR SLIPPED INTO BILL IN SENATE!
Monday night, an amendment authored by Senator Glenn Hegar was slipped into the TxDOT Sunset bill, HB 300, that authorizes all the Trans Texas Corridor (TTC) contracts called CDAs (for both TTC-35 & TTC-69) to continue. It also says no provision, restrictions, or "protections" in HB 300 apply to it, despite the repeal of the actual TTC language from the code. Senator Hegar assured Senator Dan Patrick on the floor that the TTC is dead, then slips in this floor amendment that deliberately allows it to continue!
Senator Robert Nichols, who brokered the backroom deal to make it happen, sent a press release all over the state claiming he voted to abolish the TTC, when he and others did just the opposite! HB 300 is now over 1,000 pages long with little time left in the session to read it or know what's in it, much less to be able to strip out all the bad provisions. HB 300 now goes to conference committee where 5 members of the House and 5 members of the Senate will hash out what stays in and what goes. The session ends Monday, June 1. Strong eminent domain reform died in the House yesterday.
HB 300 abandoned the original Sunset committee recommendations long ago, and it's been loaded up with some horrific provisions like:
-Selling our highways to foreign toll operators (CDAs)
-Continuing the Trans Texas Corridor
-New loophole to toll existing freeways
-Raiding public employee retirement funds to invest in these risky CDA deals
-Up to a 10 cent gas tax hike (without ending gas tax diversions or any meaningful reform of TxDOT!)
-An increase in speed limits UP TO 85 MPH on the TTC & toll roads (with the intent to lower speed limits on competing free roads)
-Adding license plate cameras on state highways
Add to that, Speaker Joe Straus from San Antonio did not name either Rep. David Leibowitz or Rep. Lois Kolkhorst (who carried and fought for many of our GOOD amendments in the House version of HB 300) as one of the 5 conferees from the House who will decide which amendments stay in and which ones are stripped from the bill.
This bill simply has too much baggage for taxpayers to choke down, so we need to KILL HB 300. The Legislature can pass what's called a safety net bill that will push TxDOT's Sunset to next session. At this point, we don't want a special session on TxDOT, because no meaningful reform of TxDOT is possible as long as Rick Perry still holds a veto pen.
Highway paid for with 100% gas taxes opens as TOLL ROAD!

From Gun Owners of America:
Obama Picks Sotomayor for Supreme Court
by Larry Pratt
The gloves are off and the mask has been put aside. All of the President’s previous dissimulation to the contrary, he aims to use the Supreme Court to finish off what is left of the Constitution.
Judge Sonia Sotomayor is an Obama lieutenant in his assault against the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
We need to tell each Senator that this will be 1994 all over again. That is the year the Democrats lost control of the Congress when they voted for President Clinton’s gun ban.
Sonia Sotomayor is currently on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second District. There she has racked up an anti-Second Amendment record. Generally she has displayed contempt for the rule of law under the Constitution.
The Heller decision put the Supreme Court in support of the Constitutional protection of the individual right to keep and bear arms. Sotomayor, a politically correct lover of centralized government power (as long as she is part of the power elite), immediately went into counter-attack mode against the Heller decision.
Sotomayor was part of a three-judge panel earlier this year which ruled in Maloney v. Cuomo that the Second Amendment does not apply to the states. What? Well, as she and her cohorts claim, the Supreme Court has not yet incorporated the states under the Second Amendment. Until then, she believes, the Second only applies to the District of Columbia.
This is pure judicial arrogance -- something Sotomayor relishes (as long as she is one of the ruling judges). In fact, protection of the right to keep and bear arms was a major objective for enactment of the Fourteenth Amendment, as recently freed slaves were being disarmed and terrorized in their neighborhoods.
But Sotomayor disdains this important right of individuals, as indicated by an earlier opinion from 2004. In United States v. Sanchez-Villar, she stated that “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.”
Sotomayor’s Second Amendment views flow naturally from her politically correct views on the law and the role of judges.
Sotomayor thinks that her being a Latina with the appropriate genitalia qualifies her to rule better than “a White male who hasn’t lived that life.” This was the judge’s “learned” opinion delivered in a Cultural Diversity lecture at the University of California (Berkeley) School of Law in 2001. As a politically correct elitist, we can be sure that she will continue to rule against the Second Amendment.
Sotomayor laid bare her raw grasping for power and lack of judicial temperament in a speech given at Duke University in 2005. She made it abundantly clear that she is not interested in applying the law and respecting the meaning of our founder’s words.
“All of the legal funds out there, they’re looking for people with court of appeals experience because the court of appeals is where policy is made,” she told her Duke audience.
Realizing that this did not sound very judicial (even though most judges act on this basis), Sotomayor tried to laugh off her brazen admission: “I know this is on tape and I should never say that, [audience laughing], because we don’t make law – I know. Um, okay. I know, I’m not promoting it, I’m not advocating it.” The audience continued to laugh. They got the joke.
Sotomayor’s joke will be on us and our liberties.
President Obama said he was looking for a judge based on their “empathy.” I have no doubt that is but a more considered rephrasing of Sotomayor’s genitalia philosophy of judging. Absent in all the chatter about Sotomayor is fidelity to the original meaning of the Constitution.
Sotomayor’s judicial philosophy might be best characterized by the Queen of Hearts who proclaimed that “I can believe eight different things before breakfast” -- except, of course, for the true meaning of the “right to keep and bear arms.”
By her own admission she wants her experience to rule from the bench, and thus, it is highly unlikely that her Ivy League, elitist factory background will lead to her “feeling good” about folks owning guns.

You did it!
Thanks to your efforts and support, "Freedom Watch" with Judge Napolitano, Ron Paul, Peter Schiff and more is FINALLY being considered for an open time slot on Fox News Channel. Can you imagine what would happen if the Freedom message could be heard by millions of mainstream viewers each week?
They'll make the decision soon, but we're up against some big name shows.
Here's how we can help:
1. Flood them with emails requesting the show (see below for sample email)
2. Bump the viewcounts on YouTube AND the Fox website.
Send as many emails as you can, get your friends to send... here's the address:
Here's a sample email you can cut and paste (thanks to Austin Petersen of the LP):
To Whom it May concern:
I am writing today to request that Judge Napolitano’s “Freedom Watch” be given a chance to be aired on Fox News Channel.
There are so many people out there I believe that would watch it because there just aren't any shows that really cater to independent minded people like me who care about things like personal and economic freedom.
Having a show like this on T.V. would be compelling, and I would definitely watch it and get my friends and family to watch it too. Fox would be opening up a whole new market and bring in lots of new viewers! Please put it on air!
Here's the email I sent:
To Whom it May concern:
I am writing today to request that Judge Napolitano’s “Freedom Watch” be aired on the Fox News Channel.
This show is the ONLY show of its kind, and is extremely appealing to the growing number of independent minded people like me who care about things like personal and economic freedom. As people become increasingly disillusioned with the current administration's policies, the audience for the Judge's show will explode. Please give this show a chance to be the breakout hit I know it will be.
Having a show like this on television would be an outstanding complement to your existing programming stream, and would certainly tap into a whole new market that is currently under-served and hungry for exactly this sort of show.
Thank you SO much!
THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR EFFORTS... This is the closest we've ever been to having our message heard by millions every week.
Watch this week's episode:
Quick, get in the chopper!
Rep. Alan Grayson is urging his Democratic party colleagues to join him in cosponsoring HR 1207:
I write to ask you to co-sponsor HR 1207, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, which would give the Government Accountability Office the authority to audit the Federal Reserve and its member components and require a report to Congress by the end of 2010.
The Federal Reserve System operates as the central bank for the United States, managing the economy’s money supply and overseeing the banking system. Until recently, the Fed has not picked winners and losers when distributing money, nor has it brought credit risk onto its balance sheet. It has slowed or stimulated the economy by raising or lowering interest rates. Since March 2008, the Fed has resorted to using its emergency powers to pick winners and losers, and to take massive credit risk onto its books. Since last September, the Fed’s balance sheet has expanded from around $800 billion to over $2 trillion, not including off-balance sheet liabilities it has guaranteed for Citigroup, AIG, and Bank of America, among others. The bank is also ‘monetizing’ the debt of the United States Government by purchasing massive amounts of agency and Treasury bonds. An audit is the first step in bringing this unaccountable system under the control of the public, whose money it prints and disseminates at will.
The Federal Reserve is an odd entity, a public-private chimera that controls the US monetary system and supervises the banking system. The system is governed by a Board of Governors, with twelve regional reserve banks that serve a supporting role. While the Governors are appointed by the President with confirmation by the Senate, the regional Reserve Banks have boards of directors chosen primarily by private banking institutions. Right now, for instance, the CEO of JP Morgan, Jamie Dimon, serves on the Board of Directors of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, as did Goldman Sachs Director Stephen Friedman.
This creates striking conflicts of interest and unseemly appearances in the management of what is ultimately the public’s money.
* JP Morgan’s CEO was a board member of the New York Fed even as he negotiated on behalf of JP Morgan with the New York Fed for a $29 billion bridge loan to allow his company to take over Bear Stearns.
* New York Fed and Goldman Sachs board member Stephen Friedman purchased 37,300 shares of Goldman Sachs stock in December at the same time as Goldman received permission to convert to a bank holding company regulated by the Federal Reserve. Friedman at the time was also overseeing the selection of a New York Federal Reserve President to replace Tim Geithner, and the New York Fed ended up hiring another alumni from Goldman Sachs.
* According to the bank’s website, the two “class B” directorships of the New York Fed that are supposed to represent the public are vacant.
* Enron’s Jeff Skilling was on the board of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank.
Criticism of banker influence and control of our monetary system is not new. However, the urgency of the financial crisis and the actions of the Fed picking investment bank winners and losers have changed the nature of the criticism. The Senate just passed a non-binding resolution requiring more transparency at the Federal Reserve in its Budget Resolution.
Still, neither the GAO nor the Federal Reserve Inspector General has audited the books of the Federal Reserve or its regional banks. The Federal Reserve has refused multiple inquiries from both the House and the Senate to disclose who is receiving trillions of dollars from the central banking system. The Federal Reserve has redacted the central terms of the no-bid contracts it has issued to Wall Street firms like Blackrock and PIMCO, without disclosure required of the Treasury, and is participating in new and exotic programs like the trillion-dollar TALF to leverage the Treasury’s balance sheet. With discussions of allocating even more power to the Federal Reserve as the ‘systemic risk regulator’ of the credit markets, more oversight over the central bank’s operations is clearly necessary.
The net effect of recent actions has been to isolate financial policy-making entirely from democratic input, and allow the Treasury Department to leverage the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet to spend money it cannot get appropriated from Congress. The public does not know where trillions of its dollars are going, and so has no meaningful control over the currency or this unappropriated “budget”. The extraordinary size of these lending facilities combined, the extreme secrecy, and the private influence is a dangerous seizure of Congress’s constitutional prerogative to appropriate public monies and control the currency.
An audit of the Federal Reserve may not be sufficient to control this sprawling system or bring it back into balance, but it is a start. The public has a right to know to whom the US government is lending trillions of dollars. Dancing around this issue with technocratic terms like ‘increasing liquidity’ and ‘private financial intermediation’ is preventing a full and long overdue public debate on the role of the Federal Reserve and the influence of private banking interests in the governing of our economy.
I encourage my colleagues to support H.R. 1207, so that we can bring some transparency to our banking system and allow the public to have a real debate over the fundamental direction of our nation’s political economy.

What a hypocrite.
Feinstein was accused of hypocrisy when it became public information that despite her stringent anti-gun record, the Senator maintained a Concealed Weapons permit and actively carried a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver for her personal safety. It is unknown if she still carries the concealed firearm or maintains the permit, but according to The Stentorian, San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown stated in 2000 that she had voluntarily relinquished both the concealed weapons permit and the firearm.  When challenged, she stated "I know the sense of helplessness that people feel. I know the urge to arm yourself because that's what I did. I was trained in firearms. I'd walk to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out, I was going to take them with me."

Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn, where are you? I request you cosponsor S.604 now!
Thursday, May 14, 2009
And then there were 156! co-sponsors to HR 1207.
It's time we stopped letting the corporate bankers steal from us. End the FED!
Any Congressman who doesn't cosponsor HR1207 is basically enabling theft. If your congresscritter isn't a cosponsor, call them on it.

Who is this man? His name is Jeff Cherry, and he's running against Ron Paul for Congress in 2010. Should we be worried? I don't like the looks of him, and he's anti-Ron Paul.
It also looks like he's a drug warrior, a Zionist, and a globalist. No, thank you.
If you feel inclined to contact Jeff, here's his email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Update! Found some video of Jeff Cherry. Apparently he had a video of his own on YouTube, but has taken it down. But here's an interview of him, apparently at a Tea Party:

Oil and/or butter to coat small saucepan for sautéing (I use mostly grape seed oil with 2 pats of butter for taste)
1 small onion, chopped
1-3 cloves of raw garlic, finely minced
½ can of mushroom stems & pieces, chopped
½ can of artichoke quarters, chopped
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 8-oz package of cubed ham
½ 8-oz package provolone cheese slices, chopped
½ 8-oz package Muenster cheese slices, chopped
1 frozen pie shell
Preheat oven to 350. Put empty pie shell into oven for 15 minutes, then remove.
Chop onions & garlic and sauté in saucepan with oil and/or butter until onions are translucent. Sprinkle dash of black pepper & stir.
Chop and add mushrooms and artichokes and sauté briefly, take off burner and allow it to cool.
Combine eggs, sour cream, cheese, ham, and contents of saucepan in a mixing bowl and mix well. Pour into pie shell and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Remove and allow it to cool for 30 minutes.
I use one saucepan, one mixing bowl, one knife, one cutting board, and one silicone spatula, so this is pretty quick and easy, with minimal cleanup. Enjoy!
Thank you, Congressman Michael McCaul for co-sponsoring HR 1207!
I really appreciate you getting behind Ron Paul's bill to audit the Federal Reserve. It's a great start.
I see that Gun Owners of America gives you an A- rating, not too bad, better than most.
Please keep up the good work!

"Getting Fluoride Out of Austin City Water"
An Information Meeting at
Casa de Luz Community Night
Monday May 11, 2009
7:00 - 9:00 pm (Cielo Room)
Free and Open to All
Did you know that Austin Water Utility routinely injects an unrefined industrial-grade toxic waste chemical into our everyday water supply? Fluorosilicic acid, scrubbed from the smokestacks of phosphate fertilizer factories, accumulates in the body over time causing an assortment of unwanted ailments. Numerous recent studies reveal that this chemical lowers IQ, causes bone and bladder cancer, slows the metabolic ability of the thyroid, brings onbone disease, inhibits function of the pineal gland, poisons the kidneys, and damages teeth.
When the City Council made its 1973 decision to medicate its population through the public water supply, it used data that is now known to be false. Communities across the US have woken up to this public health debacle and are voting against fluoridation in force. Fluoride Free Austin ultimately seeks to inform and mobilize Austinites to seek the end of water fluoridation of the city water we use to drink, cook, and grow our food. The Austin City Council was going to vote on whether or not to renew the fluoride contact in March 2010 but Fluoride Free Austin just learned that last week it quietly voted to renew the contract!
Join as we get informed, exchange ideas, and get involved. Austin's fluoridated water is a concern to those committed to health for all, organic food, permaculture, and sustainability. Please forward this email to others.
