I spent a few hours on the corner of US 1 and Oakland Park Blvd. on a gorgeous South Florida day with the Tea Party Fort Lauderdale. The longest-running Tea Party in the USA, founders Danita Kilcullen and Jack Gillies have done a tremendous job growing the group, supporting local conservative candidates and offering information on pending legislation, amendments and other important developments.
While the group realizes that our work has only just begun, yesterday was mostly about taking time out to celebrate our successes after nearly two years of passionate, dedicated activism. The three videos I put together, beginning with Part One below, tell the tale of what ordinary, everyday Americans can accomplish with enough belief, persistence and willingness to roll up their sleeves. Enjoy!
Update: Here’s the second video from the day:
Update: Third video featuring US veteran John Sykes’ presentation on the US Marine Corps.
Update: Fourth and last video featuring a beautiful rendition of The Star Spangled Banner from Ashley.
Very thankful to be in the company of tireless, dedicated patriots here in South Florida.
The last meeting before the do-or-die 2010 midterm elections was held the other night in West Palm Beach. At my friend Steve Rosenblum’s suggestion, all candidates in attendance were afforded an opportunity to speak first before attending to other business. I am so proud of everyone running and can only say that after listening to their presentations, I more excited than ever about next month’s elections. Florida has an excellent slate of candidates, and I am thrilled to support them via precinct walking, robo-calls (in the case of Pam Bondi), blog posts, social media and every form of activism available to us in the 21st Century.
One of the most dynamic, passionate and gentlemanly among them is Bernard Sansaricq, an intelligent, articulate voice for American freedom who is running against impeached judge/thug Alcee Hastings in Florida Congressional District 23. Bernard exuberantly announced Newt Gingrich’s recent endorsement of his campaign, to the delight of the entire audience, before noting that Belle Glade — Hasting’s place of birth and the poorest area of the state — is suffering with 42% unemployment.
At a recent Belle Glade debate reported on by my friend and tireless patriot Yomin Postelnik, Hastings threatened Sansaricq after challenging him to a debate in which the statesman noted:
“I have visited Belle Glade 20 times since the beginning of the campaign and I intend on being YOUR Congressman. And I won’t tell you that you need to hire a lobbyist when you need something from me. That’s because your congressman is elected to be your lobbyist!
Belle Glade has a 42% unemployment rate. You can be sure that when elected, I won’t hire some girlfriend and pay her $160,000 of the people’s money when those funds can be used to hire eight people in Belle Glade. I also won’t take trips to Europe with that girlfriend on the taxpayer dime. I will remain here and have a presence in the district, fighting for you.”
Alcee’s response, in full earshot of all of the assembled elderly residents of the no longer Quiet Waters, “You’d better travel safe! You’d better travel safe! You’d better travel safe!”
For those who don’t understand thug-ese, that’s a desperate threat (albeit an empty one) on Bernard Sansaricq’s life. — Yomin Postelnik
In case it’s not perfectly clear from that short excerpt, Florida CD-23 is in desperate need of strong, principled leadership — and Bernard Sansaricq is the perfect man to deliver it. Please visit his site and donate anything you can.
In fact, take a look at each of these great candidates and do whatever you can to help. Our freedom depends on it.
Hard to believe I know, but I’ve finally created the last movie from video footage of the West-Klein debate this past Tuesday — with the addition of a short clip of my friend and indefatigable activist, Jessica Johnson Dornblaser at the next day’s protest in Fort Lauderdale. While we stood outside with a few other patriots holding signs, Ron Klein spoke at a breakfast for commercial lenders. As you’ll note in the video, he apparently didn’t have much to say, as Jessica spotted him striding quickly to his car in the parking lot just moments after the festivities got underway.
One positive sign: We managed to speak with a few lenders who’d also left soon after Klein, none of whom were supporters. One guy told me it was all he could do not to scream out the names Fannie and Freddie when Klein did his typical “banks are evil” shtick as part of his presentation. My guess is that all of them will be voting Republican next month.
In a refreshing change of pace after the Florida Primary and The Liberty Belle Hour with Tony Hager (click on the link to listen to the archive), I will be hosting Red River Writers Live: Romancing the Novel from Coast to Coast on Blog Talk Radio this afternoon at 5 p.m. Eastern.
Please join me as I welcome California-based Cassidy McKay, and New Jersey-based Mickey Flagg, both talented authors in the romance genre. During the course of the two-hour show, we’ll discuss their work and their latest projects as well as the daunting task of writing tasteful yet compelling love scenes. I’ll also ask them to share their advice for other aspiring romance novelists. Live chat and phone lines will be open, so feel free to comment and ask questions.
Looking forward to a little romance (and a break from the relentless political scene) later today! 😉
