Justice Department Sues Arizona, Again. This Time For Simply Asking Non-Residents To Show Their Green Card.

The Justice Department is suing the State of Arizona yet again. This time they are targeting Maricopa County Community College District. The suit contends that the district is discriminating against Non-U.S. citizens by requiring them to fill out more paperwork.

According to the suit 247 people, were not U.S. residents were required to fill out more paperwork than was required by law, violating the federal Immigration and Nationality Act or "Don't ask, don't tell us that you are an illegal alien." To be fair, this rule applies to LPR(Legal Permanent Residents)as well. These are people who are not U.S. citizens, but we let them stay and work here.
"The law's antidiscrimination provision "makes it unlawful to treat authorized workers differently during the hiring process based on their citizenship status," said Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for Justice's Civil Rights Division. He said the government "is acting now to remedy this pattern or practice of discrimination."
Tom Gariepy, a spokesman for Maricopa Community Colleges - which operates 10 colleges and two vocational training centers in and around Phoenix - declined to comment.
Justice Department officials said the lawsuit is unrelated to the case against Brewer and the probe of Arpaio and stems from a different investigation that began in January 2009 - the month the Obama administration took office."
The suit alleges that the college is asking Permanent Residents who are not U.S. citizens to provide more documentation than is required by law. After 10 minutes scouring the internet I was able to deduce that for permanent residents the documentation they need to provide to prove their 'eligibility' to work in the U.S. is a 'green card'
This is from the USCIS website and is part of a guide book for new immigrants Permanent residents are issued a valid Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551) as proof of their legal status in
the United States. Some people call this a “Green Card.” If you are a permanent resident who is 18 years or older, you must carry proof of your immigration status. You must show it to an immigration officer if asked for it.Your card is valid for 10 years and must be renewed before it expires.You should file Form I-90 to replace or renew your Permanent Resident Card.You can get this form at http://www.uscis.gov or by calling the USCIS Forms Line. There is a fee to file Form I-90.Your Permanent Resident Card shows that you are allowed to live and work in the United States.You also can use your Permanent
Resident Card to re-enter the United States. If you are outside the U.S. for more than 12 months, you will need to show additional documentation to re-enter the U.S. as a permanent resident. See page 10 for more information on the documents required to re-enter the U.S. if you are out of the country for more than 12 months.

Non-Residents who have not gotten their green card are to fill out an I765, which gives them a temporary work authorization card. So I was surprised to learn that this was part of their suit...
"Zainul Singaporewalla, a U.S. permanent resident who applied for a math teaching position at Glendale Community College, part of the Maricopa network.
That form required other documents and his green card. When he couldn't present his green card, the lawsuit said, the college would not process his paperwork and declined to hire him"
So, while a green card is required to work in the U.S., even if you are an LPR, the  federal Immigration and Nationality Act says, you can't ask them for that, because that is discrimination. Here's a great idea, when you give them a Social Security Number and Drivers License, make their Driver's License their green card, and than strike that whole green card nonsense from the laws in regards to Legal Permanent Residents. Of course, you could always stop writing BS laws that contradict the immigration laws already in place, effectively neutering any chance that these laws can be enforced. Oh, that's right, you did that already. It's called the federal Immigration and Nationality Act.

 With Polls showing nearly three quarters of the United States standing with Arizona and their fiery Governor Jan Brewer on how immigration law should work, these lawsuits are clearly the Obama Administrations attempt to shut down any attempt at enforcing immigration law, and to help clear the way for somewhere between 10 and 30 million illegal aliens, undocumented criminals, legal permanent residents, migrant farm workers, auto-body modification technicians, drug cartel liaisons, etc to break more laws by voting in a federal election for him.

If Obama knows anything, it's how to pander to people. He coddles Muslim extremists and illegal immigrants like no man I've seen. Not that he should be proud of that, just that he does a good job of it. We need to shut this nonsense down, and we need to do it now. This November is going to the start of a revolution that will hopefully stop the Socialist Express from doing any more damage to "Our Beloved Republic"(c)copyright 2010 real Americans and Tea Party Patriots..

Sharpton says Glenn Beck Hijacking Civil Rights Movement

 The Reverend Al "It's Whitey's Fault!" Sharpton had some sharp words for Glenn Beck in regards to his 8/28 event. It appears the good reverend thinks that Beck is 'hijacking' the civil rights movement.
 Here is some of what al Sharpton told CBS news:
"When Dr. King and others came here in '63 to ask the government to protect the civil rights of people and the economic rights of people, they came to ask government to protect them from local states that were robbing them of economic and civil rights," said Sharpton, who is hosting a rally of his own tomorrow. "...Glenn Beck is coming here to ask government to leave us alone, so he's trying to reverse what King did and there are those of us who are not going to allow that to happen."
"They're saying 'we're talking about the honor of America,' they're saying 'we're talking about restoring dignity,' there is nothing more dignified than our country coming together and making sure that everyone has equal opportunity," said Sharpton. "That's not communism, that's really what this country is supposed to stand for and what Dr. King gave his life for."

Beat Whitey Night At Iowa Fair. Black Mob Attacks White People For Fun.

Des Moines police are investigating a string of attacks at the Iowa State Fair, and say they may be racially motivated.
Police say in the latest attack on the fair's final night, Sunday, 30 to 40 teens roamed the fairgrounds looking for trouble.
Some teens had been yelling, "It's beat whitey night."
Wow. Sounds like a load of fun. I never pictured Iowa as a haven for racist black people. Perhaps they got bored of beating each other up in the east and west coast cities and decided to move inland. I understand being bored on a Saturday night and wanting to raise some hell, but going to the fair, threatening to and than  carrying out assaults on random white people and than beating up the cops who try to stop you?

State Dept. Confirms Obama Is A Dual Citizen

The State Department is maintaining a "counter-misinformation" page on an America.gov blog that attempts to "debunk a conspiracy theory" that President Obama was not born in the United States, as if the topic were equivalent to believing space aliens visit Earth in flying saucers.
However, in the attempt to debunk the Obama birth-certificate controversy, the State Department author confirmed Obama was a dual citizen of the U.K. and the U.S. from 1961 to 1963 and a dual citizen of Kenya and the U.S. from 1963 to 1982, because his father was a Kenyan citizen when Obama was born in 1961.

Gary Berntsen For U.S. Senate in New York

Gary Berntsen is the Republican candidate for the US senate in New York running against incumbent Democrat Chuck Schumer. I had the pleasure of following Gary during his recent appearance at Spiedie Fest in Binghamton, New York, and i have pictures and stories about the experience, but first I'd like to get you up to speed about who Gary Berntsen is and what his platform is.
Gary Berntsen is a former CIA  officer and best selling author. He served in the Air Force, and spent 23 years with the CIA's Clandestine Service, and as a CIA Station Chief three times. He is also the author of three books including the New York Times bestseller Jawbreaker: the Attack on Bin Laden and al Qaeda.

Michael Bloomberg Slams Native Americans On Radio Program. Seneca Nation Wants Him To Resign Over "Cowboy Hat And Shotgun" Remark. Bloomberg Refuses To Apologize.

Michael Bloomberg Douchebag
After his ludicrous comments regarding the Ground Zero Mosque, you would think that Mayor Michael Bloomberg would be tolerant of Native Americans as well as Muslims. Apparently his racial sensibilities don't extend outside the city of New York. During a radio program.

Bloomberg, who was discussing the proposed cigarette tax for Native American reservations, said that Governor David Patterson should grab "a cowboy hat and a shotgun" and demand the money. Wow. This guy has a heart of gold doesn't he?

I would like to remind Governor fucktard, err I mean Patterson that the reservations are "sovereign nations" and as such aren't subject to state or federal law. Of course the federal government has already forgotten this numerous times in the past. But hey, after two centuries what could it hurt if we fuck these people up the ass without lube a little more.

The Seneca have on numerous occasions shut down attempts by the state of New York government to try and impose illegal taxes upon them. In one instance they protested a tax on Indian cigarettes and gasoline by setting fire to tires and cutting off traffic to Interstate 90 and New York State Route 17.
Here are some of the details from Fox News.
The nation said that the mayor should resign "effective immediately" over his "inflammatory and racially insensitive" remarks -- or at least apologize. 
That's not all. The Seneca Nation called on Paterson to "publicly condemn and distance himself" from Bloomberg and stated that the nation's president reserves the right to file a complaint alleging a "human rights violation and a hate crime" with the Justice Department and several other agencies. 
On top of that, the Seneca Nation filed a complaint over the cigarette tax in federal court and claimed it was giving the state government until Thursday to respond to their demand to postpone its enforcement. Otherwise, the nation will go to court Friday to try to block the tax, President Barry Snyder said in a written statement. Paterson's office had no comment. 
But Bloomberg is not backing down. Spokeswoman Jessica Scaperotti said the mayor is not planning to apologize or resign. 
"There will not be an apology forthcoming," she said. "What the New York City mayor's office is looking to do is to have the tribes follow the law." 
The tax on the tribes is part of a broader tax package aimed at filling in New York's gaping deficit. Under the plan, the state tax on cigarettes would go up $1.60 per pack -- the move is expected to raise $440 million for New York's in-the-red budget, with $150 million coming from the new tax on Native American cigarette sales.
 Let me get this straight. The State government refuses to comment on this whole affair, and Bloomberg's office Says he won't apologize and wants the Indians to 'follow the law'? Whose law? Not their laws. They have their own  government thank you very much, how dare you try and unfairly tax these people you insensitive pricks! I apologize that I am using a large number of expletives, but enough is enough. This state is being run by a jack booted tyrant with no business sense, no common sense, and did I mention he's blind and can't even read the bills he is signing in to law?

Bloomberg is a schmuck. He is one of the worst Mayor's New York has ever had. He is nearly as clueless as David Patterson. I am in awe that the people of New York continue to vote in these ass clowns year after year. This year, I am praying very hard right, will be different. The people are mad as hell and they aren't going to take it any more. Carl Paladino and his new "Taxpayers Party Line" candidates are making waves all across the state with the help of the Tea Parties and other real grassroots groups. This same effect can be seen all over the country this year, with the hopes that we can shut down the Democrats strangle hold on the government in November.
Let me try and make this clear for everyone.
  • The Democrats in New York raise taxes.
  • They promote policies that restrict businesses, and these businesses leave.
  • With no businesses, people are out of work.
  • They decide being jobless isn't enough so they tax the things you like to do like smoke ,or drink soda.
  • They attempt to dominate Native American Indians with unjust taxes and intrusive actions.
  • Their plans backfire and they lose money so they try to tax more things to make up for it.
  • People get sick of the taxes and leave. Now there are less people to pay taxes in New York.
Get it? You voted for this! You put these people in to office and now they are fucking you! It's time to wake up people. Get out to the voting booths in November and vote these scumbags out! New York can't take another round of these penises in suits. Please if you love New York, your life, your families, vote or a positive change in November. Vote for the people who want you to keep your hard earned money. Vote the Taxpayer Party Line and send the Democrats a clear message. Get out!

Nathan Daschle Executive Director Of The DGA calls On Fox News To Run A Disclaimer On Their Show Because News Corp. Donated 1 Million to the RGA.

In another fit of hypocrisy laden nonsense Nathan Daschle DGA(Democratic Governor's Association)Executive Director says he wants Fox News to run a disclaimer during their broadcasts informing their viewers that their parent company New Corp. has donated 1 million dollars to the RGA(Republican Governor's Association) Daschle states:
"For the first time in history, your organization is openly and proudly supporting the defeat of Democratic governors with an unprecedented political contribution of $1 million to the Republican Governors Association. In fact, your company provided the single largest corporate contribution to our opposition.
In the interest of some fairness and balance, I request that you add a formal disclaimer to your news coverage any time any of your programs cover governors or gubernatorial races between now and Election Day. I suggest that the disclaimer say: “News Corp., parent company of Fox News, provided $1 million to defeat Democratic governors in November.” If you do not add a disclaimer, I request that you and your staff members on the “fair and balanced” side of the network demand that the contribution be returned. "
According to Rick Ellis writing for allyourtv.com, many media organizations have donated to the DGA as well:
The totals below are the aggregate contributions to the DGA, year-to-date.
Dish Network-$25,000
GE Corporate (Ft. Myers, FL)-$105,000
Jacobs Entertainment-$100,000
Level 3 Communications-$25,000
Motion Picture Association Of America-$15,000
Time Warner-$35,000
It should be noted that GE gave the same amount to the RGA as well. So while the 415,000 dollars contributed to the DGA is less than the 1 million contributed by News Corp. to the RGA, this is not surprising, considering the fact that the political climate is such that, many Democratic candidates this year might not get the wins this November as Tea Party candidates are making huge waves across the country. So why donate a ton of money to a losing proposition? I would hold on to my wallet and maybe see if things look better for the 2012 elections.

So, 9 organizations donate to the Democrats, and two make contributions to the Republicans, and somehow Fox is somehow more biased than these other organization because they happen to be more generous with their money? Frankly, since the government has decided that it's perfectly ok for large corporations to donate boat loads of money to political campaigns, why is anyone surprised that someone decided to run with that?

Last Jan. 21, the U.S. Supreme Court caused a firestorm of controversy over their ruling in the case of Citizens United v Federal Election Commission stating that corporations, labor unions and other groups are free to spend money seeking to influence political campaigns, although they still can’t contribute directly to candidates or their organization.

The liberal courts in concert with the liberal controlled government made this decision, one that even very liberal people found unpalatable.  So for Nathan Daschle to complain that a company did something that the liberal elite said was perfectly alright to do, is hypocritical, unless of course Nathan protested this decision. I have not been able to dredge up any such words from Mr. Daschle anywhere.

I am going to hazard a guess and say that Fox is NOT going to post a disclaimer about their political contributions, and I also surmise that ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, etc will also not be putting disclaimers on the air about their political contributions....since it's already public knowledge. Nathan Daschle is just upset that this year, many Democrats are going to end up suffering crushing defeats at the hands of Conservatives, just like his daddy did....
Here is the link to the letter he wrote to FOX: Nathan Daschle Letter to FOX News

Carl Paladino For Governor Of New York. The People's Candidate Continues To Gain Momentum Toward The November Elections.

Paladino Crowd
Photo via Paladinoforthepoeople.com
A few months ago, if you asked the average New Yorker who Carl Paladino was, they'd probably look at you funny. Now it appears that this Buffalo business man might just be the next Governor of New York. The same impossible odds that led to a Republican sitting in Ted Kennedy's old senate seat in Massachusetts. Or a Republican reclaiming the Governor's mansion in New Jersey might be the same energy that leads Carl Paladino to Albany in November.

Paladino is the CEO of the Ellicott Development Company, a property management, leasing and development firm.With over 1,500,000 square feet of office space in Downtown Buffalo, and over 1,000,000 square feet of retail space in New York and Pennsylvania, three huge hotels in the western part of New York, let's not forget the 550,000 sq. ft. of residential apartments, condominiums and townhouses in the Buffalo/Niagara region. The company he runs is sitting on around 500 million in assets, Paladino himself is worth about 150 million. He's also a partner in a law firm. This is one busy guy.

He's not letting his success, or his schedule slow him down. Paladino is canvassing New York with a vengeance, and despite his lack of credentials in the world of politics, he is gaining ground and doing it his way. After being cut short by the RNC, and losing the conservative line to Republican Rick Lazio, he skipped the RNC convention all together and has been bringing his message directly to the people. He spent two weeks on the Erie Canal seeing upstate New York and connecting with the residents there. Paladino is also a pretty humble guy, he has made appearances twice in my home town area. Once at a park to a small, but enthusiastic crowd, and again a of couple weeks later, speaking with Senator Tom Libous at Brother's Two Restaurant in Endwell, NY to a crowd of around 85 people.

 Paladino weathered some controversy earlier in his campaign, and is now edging out Lazio in a recent Rasmussen-New York Gubernatorial Poll.
Some of Carl Paladino's former foes and detractors are suddenly lining up to be his buddy, and even Tom Libous who cautiously avoided throwing his support to Paladino just a few weeks ago has decided to back the rogue Buffalo businessman. Other notables backing Paladino include Chris Cox, whose father Ed Cox fought to keep Paladino off the ballot and even tried to block him from speaking at the party's June nominating convention. Even minority leader Dean Skelos is giving his nod to the Maverick candidate from Buffalo.

People across the state, and particularly Tea Party groups are all very excited about the new "Taxpayer Party" Line that Paladino has founded. Some believe it can be an alternative to running under the "Conservative" Line, with a small number saying it could evolve into a viable 'third party' something that most people are convinced is an impossibility, given the implication that it could be a constant vote-splitter ensuring that neither the 'Conservative' Republican or the 'Taxpayer' Republican wins any elections.

I am up in the air on the concept of a third party, however I have seen the enthusiasm of the fledgling patriots standing up across New York, and I have seen the slow, but steady rise to prominence of the outsider candidate Carl Paladino, and I coming to realize that with enough fire and determination Paladino and his Tea Party backers might blaze a new trail across the annuls of political history. I have met Carl, heard his words, and I am proud to know this man. He is genuine, and honest. He seems determined to win over the skeptics, and if the road most traveled isn't open to him, he will forge his own path to the top, a trait that has already made him a successful real estate developer, business owner, and law partner.

New York is in trouble. We are the most taxed state in the country right now, yet we are broke, and the economy is getting worse by the day. The Democrats in office have done little to alleviate the suffering, and have instead chosen to try and tax the life out of small groups of New Yorkers like smokers, by levying insane taxes on cigarettes. Governor David Patterson even wants to put a tax on soda because he says, it makes you fat.

Carl Paladino is not a politician. He doesn't need the money of special interests. He doesn't need a new career in politics. He does, however want to bring New York back from the brink of disaster, and spread some hope across this once great state.
This November vote for Carl Paladino. Vote "Taxpayer Party" Line, and most of all vote to save New York.

Gary Berntsen George Phillips Spiedie Fest Group Photos

Last weekends Spiedie Fest was a great opportunity for candidates to get out and meet the people. With such a large crowd, it was easy to walk about and talk to folks, or just sit by your tent and let them come to you. This years election cycle in New York is as critical as it gets. The Democrats have run the states economy in to the ground, they have raised taxes, taxed smokers to unreasonable levels, and Governor Patterson has tried to tax everything from Soda to iTunes downloads. It's apparent that Democrats simply do not care about people, they care about money. Not for the state mind you, for themselves.
Things are changing in New York. People are waking up and realizing their elected representatives have failed them. They are sick and tired of the oppressive nature of New York politics, and they want it to stop. Thousands are flocking to Tea Party events all over the state and many of them are out there everyday getting petition signatures, passing out literature, talking to their friends, family, neighbors, anyone who will listen. The message needs to be heard now more than ever. While I recover from a bad sinus infection I wanted to at least try and post some more photos from Spiedie Fest.
I've decided to post some groups shots of the people who made the event a good one. So here goes nothing.

George Phillips Gary Bernsten At Spiedie Fest 2010

As we inch closer to November, the candidates in this years political races here in New York are once again taking their message to the people. This years Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally in beautiful Otsiningo Park in Binghamton. I spent the afternoon with George Phillips, candidate for Congress and some of the other local folks who are making their bid for office this year in the hopes of cleaning up New York, and wrangling control away from the Democrat controlled Senate and Assembly.

On hand for the event were George's dedicated staff, members of the Triple Cities Tea Party and other candidates who share the same values as George, they just want to see New York be prosperous again. Veteran Sherriff David Harder,who is seeking re-election, has been a member of the Broome County Sherrif's Office for 46 years, and it's Sheriff for the last 12 volunteered his time at the event and was busy passing out balloons to the throngs of people who had converged on the park for the days festivities.

Art Garrison, who is running for State Assembly was also at the event. Garrison is a local business owner who is upset at the excessive taxation and the restrictive business practices of New York lawmakers and is running for office in the hope that he can change the way people and businesses are treated.
I had a chance to speak with Art Garrison recently, and get his thoughts on the state and it's financial woes.
Art Garrison Interview

Other candidates to make appearances included John A. Gaetani, a Libertarian candidate for State Comptroller, and Michael Schafer. Schafer is running for County Legislator for the 15th district. Schafer has been active in the community for many years serving on various boards and committees, and also 27 years as an elementary school principal and 8 years as a school teacher in the Union-Endicott school district. Schafer had also previously been elected to the Broome County Legislature in 2004.

The highlight of the day was a last minute appearance of Gary Berntsen. Berntsen is running against Democrat Charles Schumer for his senate seat.
Berntsen is a former CIA agent and best selling author of such books as Jawbreaker: The Attack on Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda: A Personal Account by the CIA's Key Field Commander and The Walk-In: A Novel. Gary met with the other candidates, spoke to many in the crowd at Spiedie Fest and made the rounds of the park. There is more to Gary's visit to Spiedie Fest, enough so that I will be writing a separate article about his appearance. It will include pictures and a video interview with the Candidate. Stay tuned. It should be up in the next day or so.

Maurice Hinchey On Social Security. Blames Republicans For State of Ailing Democrat Program.

Maurice HincheyImage via Wikipedia

Congressman Maurice Hinchey(D) spoke at a senior center in Conklin, NY. He promoted some of the new health care legislation and it's effects on Social Security and Medicare. Hinchey Spoke for around 40 minutes and than went outside to talk to the press. There was no formal Q&A after his speech. However, he was stopped outside the event and asked some questions by concerned citizens. A few of the folks there were not Democrats, and were not too pleased with Mr. Hinchey.

During a conversation Hinchey dismisses a woman off camera by saying they're(republicans)opposed to Social Security. This prompted another gentleman to chastise Hinchey for his 'slanderous' remark. This sparked a debate between the disgruntled senior and Congressman Hinchey. The exchange was rather lengthy, So I've limited the video to just the discussion directly related to his first remark about Republicans being opposed to Medicare. I will post the raw video footage of the event on my Youtube page for all who are interested in seeing the complete exchange.

A local news crew was on the scene and interviewed a young girl(Rita Franzonello) at the event about her views on Social Security. She came prepared with a sign and a fair amount of knowledge about the history of the Social Security program. I was curios to know a little bit about her views so I asked her to explain. Thanks again Rita, I loved what you had to say. Please don't ever close your mind and go dumb like some people do.

An interesting exchange between the young lady, and a few elderly women turned sour when the girl disagreed with their spiel, calling out an idea they mentioned as 'socialism'. The women left in a huff with one of the women shouting "I actually like Socialism. What's wrong with Socialism? That's how we pay for our police and fireman, that's Socialism." I don't think I need to explain to you how mentally deficient that women is, or how incredibly incorrect her statement was.

This is the kind of addle-brained nonsense that those of us on the right have to deal with on a regular basis. I don't mind if someone believes in Socialism, that's fine. But I'd like to point out to them that should a Socialist regime be imposed upon the people of the United States, much blood will be shed. Most of it Socialists. Sorry honey, won't happen here. We're going to make sure in November that we at least put a lock down on the Socialist elements in our government right now.

I didn't disagree with everything Hinchey said, nor do I think he's a bad person. I do, however feel that he is telling noble lies to assuage the fears of the people he and the Democrats are throwing under  the bus with Obamacare and the inevitable crippling of Medicare that this monstrous health care disaster brings with it.
Hinchey has some competition this year from a much younger candidate by the name of George Phillips.

Phillips has worked in congress before, but this is first venture into the front end of the political bus. Phillips is a favorite among the Tea Party crowd, so his chances of winning are pretty good. Hopefull we can get some fresh blood like his into Congress and start making some real changes. You know the kind of change that comes from thoughtful, well constructed ideas, and not the change that is made by blowing smoke out your...you get my point. Sorry Mr. Hinchey, you seem like a decent fellow, but I'm afraid you're a little to old to be playing with heavy machinery...or my future.

Basil Marceaux Madness Continues

Basil Marceaux is my hero. This man has balls the size of a battleship. He is one of the worst public speakers in the history of spoken word, yet he refuses to quit. His determination to become the governor of Tennessee is admirable, in an "Are you F*cking kidding me?" sort of way. His inarticulate speaking and nonsensical ideas for new laws are making him an internet sensation. He's sort of the William Hung of politics.

The astounding amount of media attention this man has garnered is ludicrous(no not the rapper)and although he's famous, recent polls show he will probably only get 1% of the vote in November. I could spend some time telling you about how much of a nut this guy is but Basil Marceaux is at his best in front of a camera. So I'd like to share with you some more Basil Marceaux madness.

Apparently small gay boys(Zinnia Jones) in drag are also fans of Basil Marceaux as evidenced here in this astoundingly ridiculous parody of Basil's now infamous speech. Ok He's probably not a fan, but he is gay, and a drag queen so I'm mostly right.

The 2010 election season is shaping up to be one hell of a ride. Tea Party candidates getting nominations in record numbers, a good portion of them are not seasoned politicians, but business men and women who seem have a genuine interest in the welfare of our republic. States fighting the government to keep illegals out and to stem the tide of forced health care reform. The biggest positive besides a unified peoples picking the candidates they want instead of party leaders is of course, the humor. Basil Marceaux, Alvin Greene, Charlie Rangel?? However you look at it, this year is looking like it might surpass the fervor and excitement of the 2008 presidential election in which a black man with no experience, but big ideas went up against a geriatric RINO with lots of experience, but no ideas on how to be a conservative.

George Phillips Congressional Candidate Speaking at Tea Party Event in Endwell, NY

I had the opportunity recently to hear George Phillips speak at an event at Brothers Two Restaurant in Endwell, NY sponsored by Broome Tea. George was a wonderful speaker and he had many insightful ideas. He exudes confidence when he takes the stage and he seems passionate about his beliefs and tries to capture his audience with his words. George Phillips is running against Maurice Hinchey for Congress of the 22nd district of New York. George is a favorite among the local Tea Parties and as a resident of Endwell he understands the issues facing the people .

George Phillips is also a teacher and has taught at High Schools and colleges, and spent some time teaching children in the inner city school district of Washington, DC. While in DC, he took a position with Congressman Chris Smith of New Jersey in 2001, then the Chairman of House Veterans’ Affairs Committee and Vice Chairman of the House International Relations Committee.
George worked on foreign affairs, business, immigration and senior issues for Congressman Smith. He was fortunate to handle part of Smith’s foreign affairs portfolio in the days following the 9/11 terrorists attacks and assisted on several bills that were signed into law, including the Victims of Trafficking Protection Act.

George also teaches Social Studies and Theology classes at his alma mater, Seton Catholic Central. He also teaches government at Broome Community College. Below is the video that was shot of the event so you can see and hear George Phillips for yourself. He has my vote, and if you care about New York, he should have yours to.
