Tea Party Video!

By Greg L | 15 April 2009 | National Politics, Prince William County | 27 Comments

This is the first of several videos I hope to get to from today’s Tea Party at the McCoart Center, and is an overview of the event. As time allows, I’ll get the speeches posted, which will probably start happening tomorrow. This gives a good overview of the event and has some of the highlights that readers will probably be most interested in.

Hundreds of people braved the rain and cold today to express their outrage over recent actions by our federal government.  It was a very impressive event, and I can definitely see this movement gaining steam as our Constitutional Republic seems to devolve into utopian socialist inanity, complete with labeling broad swaths of the citizenry as enemies of the state.

UPDATE: Here are videos of some the speeches delivered at the event:

Corey Stewart:

Richard Anderson:

Bob Marshall:

    I just searched CNN for Tea Party, and nothing was found. Did the government pressure them not to give coverage?

    April 25 TEA PARTY - 11:00 in the morning and dispersing by 1:00pm.

    We will be gathering in the south-east quadrant of LaFayette Square, right across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. And what a great location! Red line Metro stop is Farragut North. Orange/Blue line Metro stops Farragut West or McPherson Square. There may be street parking available, but it will be hit or miss. Follow the Tea Party links on our website to see a map of Lafayette Sqare.

    What to bring:
    YOUR FRIENDS! Please let us know how many you expect to be in your group.
    Placards expressing your reason for being there. Tasteful, please. We want to inform, persuade and encourage people, not insult them.
    Bring extra placards/signs to hand out to others. But no staked signs bigger than 4 ft square. Park Service rules, again.
    Bring a smile. We WILL survive this moment in history and go on doing the RIGHT thing.

    Peter and Helen Evans

    Illegal immigrants cashing in on federal tax credits, study shows.
    By Kevin Mooney
    Examiner Staff Writer/Commentary 4/16/09
    Large numbers of illegal immigrants file tax returns using phony Social Security numbers to cash in on the federal Earned Income Tax Credit, thanks to lax government management, according to the author of a new study.

    “Technically, only people authorized to work in the U.S. are eligible for the credit, you need a valid Social security number,” said Ed Rubenstein, a financial analyst and economist, speaking at a news conference Tuesday at the National Press Club.

    “But identity theft, stolen Social Security numbers, and other scams effectively nullify the restriction. As a result, illegal aliens actually receive the EITC at even greater rates than legal immigrants,” Rubenstein said.

    The IRS makes little or no effort to verify the authenticity of Social Security numbers, or existence of dependant children, Rubenstein said.

    This makes it possible for illegal immigrants to claim children still living in Mexico as dependents and for parents living illegally in the U.S. to file separate returns claiming the same children as dependents under the EITC, Rubenstein said.

    The EITC was created to boost work incentives for poor families with children. Childless households received a maximum $438 payment in 2008, while the maximum available to families with two or more children was $4,824.

    “From a distance, the EITC looks like a winner,” he said. “The devil is in the details. For starters, the program is dominated by fraud.”

    Illegal immigrant households are more than three times as likely to receive EITC than native-born American households,

    Rubenstein said. Higher fertility rates evident among the immigrant population accounts for this disparity, he said.

    “Even a tiny increase in the fertility rates, if maintained over the decades, will have enormous consequences,” Rubenstein said. “The role of EITC in the nation’s demographic destiny cannot be denied.”

    Rubenstein also cited figures from the General Accounting Office (GAO) showing that as many as a third of all EITC claims are “improperly paid.”

    Rubenstein’s report “The Earned Income Tax Credit and Illegal Immigration: A Study in Fraud, Abuse and Liberal Activism” is available at The SocialContract.Com.

    The malfeasance that credited this fiscal mess was
    bipartisan - there is plenty to blame on both Democrats
    and Republicans.

    - Repeal of Depression era regulations separating
    commercial and investment banking - REPUBLICANS

    - Ban on the regulation of credit-default swaps.

    -Agreement to allow banks to measure their own
    riskiness. - REPUBLICANS

    - Going along for the ride and not being able to find
    their ass with both hands - DEMOCRATS

    Microsoft Letter to DREAM Act Sponsors
    April 3, 2009

    Dear Senator Durbin and Senator Lugar:

    We are writing to express Microsoft’s strong support for your recent re-introduction of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act (The “DREAM Act”). We applaud your efforts to ensure that America fully empowers – and reaps benefits from – bright students who are dedicated to education and hard work. To maintain its position of leadership in the global economy, America must be the locus of the world’s best minds. It is essential to our nation’s competitiveness and success to nurture the talent we have and to incorporate bright, hardworking students into the workforce to become the next generation of leaders in this country.

    As you know, strengthening education is one of Microsoft’s highest priorities. Microsoft sees great synergy between the DREAM Act and Microsoft’s initiatives to support education and workforce training in the United States. The DREAM Act reinforces and protects America’s substantial investments in the education of its youth, and ensures that America will reap the benefits of those investments. The DREAM Act rewards those who place high value on education, on hard work, and on service to country.

    Microsoft is putting its dedication to work through a host of initiatives, including:

    Through our Unlimited Potential Community Technology Skills program, in the US, we’ve invested $85 million in cash, software and training support to more than 4,500 community technology since 2003;
    Through our Partners in Learning program in the US, we have invested $35 million in resources and training in K-12, touching more than 2.3 million students and teachers to actively increase access to technology and improve its use in learning; and
    Through our recently launched Elevate America program we will offer 1 million learning vouchers for no cost that provide the skills needed for people of all ages who are preparing for job opportunities in today’s changing economy.
    The overarching goal of all of these initiatives is to invest in and improve the education and skill levels so that America’s workforce can be the best in the world. This goal is frustrated when America loses that investment by turning the educated away when they are poised to enter the workforce – and when America is poised to reap the powerful benefits these bright individuals stand ready to offer.

    Opening the door to the best intellectual resources our country can muster is essential to our future strength. Your introduction of the DREAM Act is an important step toward that goal, and an important sign of momentum toward the broader reforms that our country so urgently needs.

    Fred Humphries
    Managing Director, U.S. Government Affairs

    The Tea Party is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Let’s get the country organized on the 4th of July to show real American Independence against illegal immigration. Obama is dead set on granting amnesty to 12-20 million illegals who broke the law and continue to break it by staying here. SEND THEM ALL BACK TO MEXICO AND CENTRAL AMERICA!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA AND IT’S CITIZENS!

    NO AMNESTY…NO PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP (U.S. citizenship MUST BE EARNED…not given out to just anyone!…We the People get to decide who it is given to…why? Because We the People own our country!). Great tea party video! We need to keep the momentum going and never stop. We must prevent our country from turning into a socialist, big government, balkanized nanny state!

    I switched to Mac about a year ago after using MS for 14 years. Never looking back. Course, Apple probably supports it, too.

    Funny you mention the SPLC, if you dig around a little bit in the recent DHS “Conservatives are Radical Extremists” report, the SPLC is behind much of the content. Cool, huh?

    If you haven’t enjoyed Janeane Garofalo’s hate-filled tirade on Keith Overbite’s show, and want to understand the core philosophy of the liberal in America, I suggest you check it out. It really summarizes how the left thinks and what we are up against.

  25. Bridget said on 19 Apr 2009 at 8:42 pm:

    Other than scream names and throw frothing tantrums, the left does not have a clue what to do. For decades, the left has claimed to be the voice of “the people”, ‘the worker”, “the oppressed”.

    Yet here we have the people in a movement that is not directed, controlled or sanctioned by the left.

    Garofalo spews her own bitter clinger loathing out of fear. It’s her “She who is not responsible cannot be punished” ploy . But even the most useful of the useful idiots eventually get rendered useless. DHS will see to it that she fits into one or another catagory…currently they are ” too numerous to mention.” That’s code, Ms. G, for we are keeping our options wide open.

    Boy, back peddling sure can create an impressive spin:


    Why has this gorgon not yet been fired?

    Wear a teabag. Put it in your shirt pocket or wherever. I now wear one at every occasion and plan to do so until fiscal sanity is restored to the USA or the teabag rots (more likely).
