ATP presses Loudoun Board candidates on environmental extremism

* Ferguson: ‘Candidates who oppose jobs, property rights and progress will be held accountable.’
* Group contacted 65,000 total Loudoun residents in effort that stopped CBPO

The nation’s largest and fastest-growing grassroots advocate of rational, pro-jobs environmental policies has sent all candidates for the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors a survey asking them to explain their positions on important issues facing voters.

“Voters have a right to know which candidates stand for jobs and which are hiding an anti-jobs, anti-progress agenda,” said American Tradition Partnership Executive Director Donald Ferguson.  “The beating, led by American Tradition Partnership, this Board took over its Chesapeake Bay scheme makes one thing clear. Loudoun is sick of tax hikes and radical regulations from the ‘Gang Green’ Board.”

“I just finished a raw steak and a glass of scotch for breakfast, so I have plenty more fight left.”

“Our purpose is to promote rational environmental polices and educate the public where candidates stand on those issues.  As I promised last year we’ve been working non-stop to hold accountable those who oppose job creation, property rights and progress.  
Candidates who oppose jobs, property rights and progress will be held accountable,” said Ferguson.  “Every member of the next Board of Supervisors should support rational environmental policy and oppose the radical anti-progress extremism of the Gang Green environmental movement.”

Candidates had until Oct. 15 to have their returned American Tradition Partnership surveys postmarked for delivery.  Results are currently being compiled.

ATP was among the first groups to oppose the Board’s Chesapeake Bay Property Control Plan, and the most active.  The group telephoned a total of 65,000 Loudoun residents, giving them their supervisor’s office, home or cell phone number and urging them to contact their supervisor in opposition to the tax-and-regulate plan.

Supervisor Jim Burton eventually tabled the plan after ATP placed over 10,000 phone calls into his district, leading Burton to bitterly complain citizens were asking him to oppose it before he eventually gave in.

“Burton did not kill the plan.  He simply tabled it and can bring it back at any time.  They’re just playing a waiting game, and I am ready to beat it back down again,” said Ferguson.

American Tradition Partnership has earned its reputation as the nation’s most effective opponent of the multi-million dollar “Gang Green” environmentalist lobby.

“American Tradition Partnership wins time and time again because the people are on our side, something elected officials should keep in mind,” said Ferguson.  ATP is currently the focus of an attack by “Green For All,” a radical leftist group founded by former Obama advisor Van Jones and funded by leftist billionaire George Soros.  “American Tradition Partnership intends to play a larger and larger role in national politics,” the group’s “Oppose The Future” project writes.

“This year at CPAC, ATP was relatively unknown. That’s not likely to continue much longer,” the group complained.

“If Van Jones and George Soros are trying to stop American Tradition Partnership I must be doing something right,” said Ferguson.
One Colorado state senate candidate, writing on the political blog, referred to Ferguson as, “(a)n aggressive supporter of all things anti-Obama and a loyal defender of last century’s fuel industry” while admitting he is “someone who knows quite a bit about marketing,” is “very impressive” and has a “history of being quoted by Rush Limbaugh and Fox News.”  That candidate would go onto lose, after refusing to answer his ATP survey.

In just the last few months ATP has:

* Filed lawsuits in Montana to allow corporations to make expenditures on behalf of candidates.

* Killed Barack Obama’s “Cap and Tax” bill in Congress.

* Along with allies, collected the signatures of 750,000 Americans in support of the Keystone XL pipeline, which transports Canadian oil across the United States to Southeast Texas for refining.

* Won House Judiciary Committee approval of the REINS Act, which strips federal bureaucrats of their power to propose and enforce major federal regulations.  The bill will now be approved by the full House before moving to the Senate.

* Successfully pushed to have the gray wolf taken off the so-called “Endangered Species List” so it can be hunted down and exterminated.

* Filed a federal lawsuit against Colorado to repeal the state’s Expensive Energy Mandate, which forces consumers to buy more expensive wind and solar power against their will.

* Filed a lawsuit against Montana to stop their ongoing harassment and false smear campaigns against conservative groups, which has already been blasted by federal courts as “petty bureaucratic harassment.”  Montana officials have openly admitted they have no evidence conservative groups have done any wrong and every district attorney has refused to even look into the politically-motivated accusations.

* Won national headlines along with our federal free speech lawsuit against Montana which allows small employers to spend money on independent political expenditures.

* Won a federal free speech lawsuit against a liberal Colorado city who passed a law requiring residents to essentially get permission from the government before saying or publishing anything critical of the liberal city council.

* Stopped a plan by liberals in the U.S. Senate to protect the EPA’s plans to declare carbon dioxide a toxic pollutant.

* Passed legislation in Montana endorsing nullification of the so-called “Endangered Species Act.”

* Launched a campaign to repeal New Hampshire’s participation in the “Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative,” a northeastern U.S. “global warming” tax cartel.

* Launched a national campaign to debunk phony claims about natural gas development using safe, clean hydraulic fracturing.

* Sank plans by Newt Gingrich to win the 2011 CPAC conservative conference’s famous Straw Poll.  With a coveted speaking slot, exhibiting organization and book signing, hosting three panels and a reception and screening two films, Gingrich’s presence dominated that of other presumptive presidential candidates.  CPAC looked to be a launching pad for a Gingrich presidential bid.  Instead, the Republican powerhouse cratered after ATP informed voters of Gingrich’s long record of supporting massive tax hikes, increased government power and international regulatory regimes to enforce what he calls “environmental compliance.”

ATP does not advocate the election or defeat of candidates.  Supported by grassroots members, ATP is a fast-growing non-profit citizens’ group dedicated to fighting environmental extremism and promoting private property rights and responsible development and management of land, water, and natural resources.

Liberal logic

 Someone just forwarded me a letter to the editor a local liberal loon wrote attacking one of my candidates who sent him a mailer.

The liberal claims “The poor grammar and spelling of the letter should attest to his lack of education, insight, foresight and loss of touch with reality.”

After claiming misspellings are a sign of mental illness the liberal then promptly writes about the “Sherriff’s station.”

Hulk Hogan visits #OccupyWallStreet

Today's #OWS rap sheet: #OWS animals desecrate Soldiers' Memorial

Calling for the deportation of Jews, defecating on police cars and burning American flags, sexual assaults, robbing pedestrians, assaulting police officers, setting fire to vandalized cars and now desecrating the Soldier's Memorial. 

And Barack Obama is STILL proud to stand with them.

Occupy Portland tenants vandalize Soldier's memorial.  H... on Twitpic

I seem to have spotted a hole in your theory.

So he's out in public unshaven, with unwashed, uncombed hair, and wearing a t-shirt and a child's backpack, but a mysterious international banking conspiracy is the reason he can't find a job?  

That's the liberal entitlement mentality on full display.

#OWS: 'The Jews need to be run out of this country.'

Just your typical Occupy Wall Street and union teacher:

Help the homeless and hungry hurt by #OccupyBoston

Since ‘Occupy Boston’ has forced the cancellation of the Greenway Mobile Food Fest, The Right Sphere is trying to raise $1,000 for the Greater Boston Food Bank, which was supposed to benefit from that event.

Please consider donating as little as $1, $5 or $10 to the Greater Boston Food Bank to help defray the Occupy movement’s damage to Boston’s nonprofits and to to show that we can put our money where our mouth is and support the needy in Boston.

You can do so using the link below.

What did #OccupyWallStreet accomplish today? Sexual assault, arson and more.

Thursday recap.  What did Occupy Wall Street accomplish today?

Sexually assaulting women in New York.

Setting fire to vandalized cars in Oregon.

Forcing the shutdown of a charity event to help the homeless in Boston

Why is Obama still proud to stand with them?

New ad documents just some of the virulent anti-Semitism seething within Occupy Wall Street

OccupyWallStreeters scream at, blame, Jews for all their problems.  Is Barack Obama still proud to stand with them?

This needs to be exposed.  History shows what happens when you don't challenge street mobs of leftists who blame Jews for their nation's economic collapse.

Is Occupy Wall Street listening?

"Any alleged 'right' of one man, which necessitates the violation of the rights of another, is not and cannot be a right. No man can have a right to impose an unchosen obligation, an unrewarded duty or an involuntary servitude on another man. There can be no such thing as 'the right to enslave.' A right does not include the material implementation of that right by other men; it includes only the freedom to earn that implementation by one’s own effort."

- Ayn Rand

Margaret Thatcher's 'Free Society' Speech (1975)

Happy Birthday, Maggie.

"What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose."

"If you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing."

Typical Occupy Wall Street: Their latest hate-filled anti-Semitic conspiracy rant

Yes, this is the movement Barack Obama publicly embraced and the Democrat Party seeks to "own."

As reported by CBS New York:

To a Jewish passer-by: "You greedy pig!  Go to Israel!"

"(Pointing to his sign) These are the Jews!  The Jews control Wall Street!"

"The Jews control Wall Street!" (repeated ad nauseum)

"Google it!  Google it!  Google 'Wall Streets Jews!'"

"[expletive] Fox News! That’s [expletive]! [Expletive] Jew made that up!"

#OWSer, transgender American Maoist hail communism, claims communists haven't killed anyone

This is the real OccupyWallStreet movement. 

A hippie, and a transgendered person in a Chinese military uniform march with Communist Chinese flag in support of communism, Marxism, Maoism.

When asked why they would identify with a despotic regime that would order their deaths, they ignorantly claim communism has never killed anyone and any reports of such are capitalist lies. (They have in fact killed tens of millions, especially peace activists and transgendered people.)

These are the morons Barack Obama announced he supports.

Violent, racist liberal physically attacks Tea Partier during rant on tolerance

Liberal lectures conservative on racism, tolerance and non-violence the only way most liberals know how, by calling him "cracker," "retard," "f--king a--hole, you deserve to be s--t on" and physically assaulting him.

He evens claims, "I've been fighting against hypocrisy my whole life."

Liberals exploit, abuse women. Again.

The ACLU just sent out a phony blast e-mail falsely claiming Congress will vote on a bill making it legal to refuse life-saving treatment to a pregnant woman.

The bill in question simply removes abortion from the services funded by taxpayers through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The fact is hospitals are still required by law to provide treatment to patients whose lives are in danger.  

But the ACLU finds the truth inconvenient.  It's easier just to lie to vulnerable women.

The ACLU lied in a cheap, pathetic attempt to use terror to exploit women for political gain.  A local abused women's shelter here did the same thing during the vote on Virginia's "marriage amendment." They bullied abused women into campaigning against it by falsely claiming it would legalize domestic abuse, no better than the abusers they were supposed to be protecting these victims from.

At least they're consistent.  Liberals love bullying and threatening women, no matter when the opportunity arises.

Typically violent Occupy liberals issue yet another call for 'blood'

OccupyLA speaker, in what is a common call for violence by the Occupy movement:

"(The) French Revolution made fundamental transformation. But it was bloody...

So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. 

Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.  

Long live revolution! Long live socialism!"

We are doomed.

A Massachusetts family yesterday somehow got lost in a novelty corn maze, even through there are signs everywhere telling you how to get out. 

They called 911 begging to have rescue teams come find them, instead of the thing that calls itself the father in charge of the family A) following the signs, B) walking between the stalks or C) just pushing the stalks aside. 

“We came in during the day time and we got completely lost and we have no idea where we are,” the caller told the 911 operator.  “I’m really scared. It’s really dark and we’ve got a 3-week-old baby with us.”

It's a corn field, not Alcatraz.

"Police quickly alerted farm management of the family’s situation, and sent a rescue team, K-9 unit and all, to the farm," ABC News reports.

It took the police just five minutes to find them, 25 feet from the exit, and escort them out.

"(Farm owner Bob) Connor said the family is the first this year to get stuck in the maze, which features maps and signs along the way to help people find their way," ABC News reports.

At least the farm owner isn't an incompetent eunuch.

“We are going to put a mark in the area where the family got lost,” Connor told “GMA.”  “We’re going to say ‘This is the famous point where the family got lost.’”

A man walks into a novelty corn maze, can't follow signs, doesn't even think to walk between the rows or just push the stalks aside and calls 911 in a panic? 

This country is in a severe masculinity crisis.  

OccupyWallStreet: Our insane death threats are not 'hate speech'

Senate passes Chinese currency bill authorizing new trade war

I'm assuming I'm completely wrong here, so let me know how. Seeing as a tariff is a tax, and was in fact a key source of revenue at the time of the Constitution's drafting and ratification, how can the Senate initiate a bill creating a tariff given Art. I, Sec. 7?

Help this guy I've been demonizing for two years

Occupy Wall Street chant: Bestiality gives you immortal life

So let's see, Barack Obama and the Democrats are embracing and seek to "own" a movement that:

A) Violently attacks a museum filled with kids

B) Taunts women and wounded soldiers at a charity race

C) Proudly defecates on a burning American flag

D) Blames a "Jew conspiracy" for the economy

E) Chants that you can achieve immortality by having sex with animals.

Moonwalk for Peace

OccupyDC kid asks me to join their solidarity march. I reminded him, "To quote one of the 20th century's great minds, "If you wanna be startin' somethin', you gotta be startin' somethin'." He just looked at me blankly. Philistine.

Occupy continues to fail at life

Occupy lunatics spending thousands on paper and posterboard for their riots.  Who is one of the nation's biggest producers of paper and posterboard?  Georgia Pacific, a subsidiary of Koch Industries.

Democrats: We must support Occupy Wall Street to fulfill Ted Kaczynski's vision.

Why do Democrats support Occupy Wall Street?  The usual reason liberals support something, they were inspired by a domestic terrorist.
"Whatever else we may think about his actions (or his writing style), Ted Kaczynski had the great misfortune of being right in his analysis...I agree with Ted, but I didn't even read the (Occupy Wall Street) manifesto until after I wrote that."

“It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.’ But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.”

'We are the 99%'

"Collectivism holds that the individual has no rights, that his life and work belong to the group . . . and that the group may sacrifice him at its own whim to its own interests. The only way to implement a doctrine of that kind is by means of brute force—and statism has always been the political corollary of collectivism." - Ayn Rand

ATP nearing Keystone signatures goal

Americans rallying around 342,000-job energy project, despite multi-million dollar enviro opposition campaign

WASHINGTON — With 48 hours left to submit comments and petition signatures supporting the proposed Keystone XL energy pipeline to the State Department, American Tradition Partnership was only 31,728 petitions short of its coalition goal of 750,000 Americans officially affirming support for the project.

“We’ll make it, but only if Americans keep up the pace of signing our petition at,” said ATP Executive Director Donald Ferguson.

“Americans support the safe, clean Keystone XL jobs pipeline,” said Ferguson.  “People are sick of environmentalists targeting jobs for elimination.  The safe, clean Keystone XL pipeline means 342,000 new jobs and 700,000 barrels a day of oil to U.S. refineries, lowering gas prices.” is a project of American Tradition Partnership (ATP,) the nation’s largest and fastest growing advocate of rational, pro-growth energy policies.  ATP is supported entirely by grassroots members.

Citizens have until a government deadline of Oct. 6 to go to and sign the petition to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who will decide whether or not to approve the project.

43% of independents 'strongly disapprove' of Obama

The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza reports:

Four in 10 Americans “strongly” disapprove of how President Obama is handling the job of president in the new Washington Post-ABC News poll, the highest that number has risen during his time in office and a sign of the hardening opposition to him as he seeks a second term...

...Forty-three percent of independents — a group the president spent the better part of the last year courting — strongly disapprove of the job he is doing...

...43 percent of self-identified Democrats said they “strongly” approve of the job Obama is doing, while 74 percent of Republicans strongly disapprove. That’s a 31-point disparity for you non-math majors out there.

The poll data provide empirical evidence for the recent switch in Obama’s rhetoric from a focus on compromise (aimed at independents) to one that accentuates the differences between his approach and the one advocated by Republicans (aimed at Democrats).
