Tea-Publicanism is the Answer for America’s Woes

By Jerry A. Kane

Knowledgeable tea partiers know that the Democrat Party plays so far out in left field it’s no longer in the stadium, and all they see is a Hobson’s choice between supporting spineless, sell-out, milquetoast, business-as-usual, Democrat-light Republicans or a third party.  But now tea party conservatives are saying they have found an answer to the dilemma and are urging their brethren to become Tea-Publicans and rejoin the Republican fold.  

“Only if Tea Party folks unite with RNC folks can they defeat the DNC. … Scattered over numerous 3rd party efforts, the American Right has no chance of regaining political power, much less saving U.S. sovereignty, security or freedom,” writes the webmaster at the National Precinct Alliance Web site.

Some Tea Party, Town Hall, and 912 groups are banning together with the National Precinct Alliance (NPA), a national organization founded by Phil Glass and Tony Warren, to transform the Republican Party and the Republican National Committee (RNC) in the coming election cycle.

According to its founders, NPA’s sole focus is to return the power of government to the people at the local precinct level. Warren points to their recent success in Nevada as a template for ousting the established RINO (Republican in name only) leadership from the Grand Old Party.

“We [constitutional conservatives] banded together … invaded and took control of the Clark County GOP. We then spread the message to our other members in the State who used Clark County as the model,” Warren said.

“Our movement took the county by surprise and then the state by force of numbers. [I]t is no longer a question of “can this work?” he added.

Eric Odom, whose Tax Day Tea Party organization of more than 60,000 members has joined with the NPA, is convinced the precinct movement triggered a shift in the party structure across Nevada and caused a major shakeup in the leadership establishment.  

“This is a profound shift in what is happening within the party, and makes it clear that if the movement really, really wanted to put the party back in the hands of true fiscal conservatives … it’s entirely possible to make it happen,” Odom said.

Republican Party officials in Ohio and Arizona note more candidates are running for precinct committeemen positions, which usually remain open due to lack of interest. Moreover, South Carolina’s Republican Party has agreed to work with tea party coalitions to make the party more conservative and boost involvement at the precinct level.

“[W]e can help each other. They know what they believe, they’re passionate about it, they can organize. And we have a lot of experience in how elections are run and how campaigns are run,” said Patrick Haddon, Republican Party chairman Greenville, South Carolina.

Glass, Warren, and Odom are recognized leaders in the national patriot movement and their coalition to push Tea-Publicianism and the Precinct Committeeman Project should prove a formidable foe for the RINO establishment. Their alliance is exactly what the Democrat-light, old-guard RNC and the progressive Democrat Party leadership fear most.

“In a three-way Generic Ballot test, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds Democrats attracting 36% of the vote. The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%, and Republicans finish third at 18%. Another 22% are undecided.”

The numbers tell the story:  Democrats have a solid 36 percent brain-dead constituency, and Republicans win only if they align with Tea Party voters. Glass, Warren, and Odom have shown the way to retake America:  1) win the precincts; 2) take control of the Republican Party; and 3) retake the nation by returning the power of government to the people.

The Tea Party activists, Town Hall protesters, and 912ers compose an enormous, rapidly growing movement with the ability to cure America’s woes.  The answer is as simple as it is obvious:  join the Republican Party at the precinct level and put forth candidates who will promote the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution as the antidote to big-government progressivism.

Army Probe Investigates Attempt to Poison Food Supply

By Jerry A. Kane

The U.S. Army is investigating allegations that five Muslim soldiers attempted to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

The five, whose first language is Arabic, were reportedly part of the “09 Lima” Arabic Translation program at the base.

Unnamed sources close to the investigation say that the five soldiers, who were arrested just before Christmas, may have been in contact with the five Muslims from the Washington, DC, area who traveled to Pakistan to wage jihad against U.S. soldiers and were arrested by Pakistani authorities, also just before Christmas.

Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division, said that the ongoing investigation, which began two months ago, is being taken “extremely seriously” by the Army. However, “there is no credible information to support the allegations,” he added.

Grey would not discuss whether the men remain in custody or have been released.
