Dr. Benjamin Carson is the man who had the temerity to speak truth to power. Dr. Carson is a pediatric surgeon at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Carson spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast (a tradition that is under assault).

Dr. Carson not only gave a powerful speech–he gave it in front of President Barack Obama. That shocked some of the beltway pundits, who believe it is disrespectful for a citizen to raise inconvenient truths in front of the President.  Decide for yourself.  Did the President and members of Congress need to hear this message of personal responsibility and freedom?

Perhaps some of the explanations of the 2,000 page-plus Patient Protection and Affordable Care Art are too long.  Here’s a one-sentence explanation by an Illinois physician who happens to be running for the legislature–apparently in Chicago!

With Vice President Joe Biden debating Paul Ryan this week, you might want to tune into the first debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.  The Biden gaffes will certainly all be covered by the mainstream media, so your time is better spent on the first Presidential debate.

Here are the highlights from the first debate. Notice how annoyed President Obama gets when Gov. Romney explains the importance of job creation.

Here is the full debate:

The national media insist that the Romney campaign and SuperPACs will outstrip the Obama campaign in spending and organization.  It looks different here on the ground in Northern Colorado.  Colorado is a swing state, and Larimer County is one of three key swing counties in Colorado.

Estes Park is only six precincts in a county with over 150 precincts.  It tends to vote like the rest of the county, making it a swing area in a swing county in–well, you get the idea.

Consider an e-mailed letter that has made the local rounds announcing that the Human Resource Director for the YMCA of the Rockies has resigned to set up an campaign office for the Obama campaign in Estes Park.  Sometime soon, Estes Park will have an Obama campaign office and a full-time paid organizer for our six little precincts.

What does Estes Park have to look forward to?  Here is a description of what a field organizer is expected to do from a 2008 organizer for the Obama campaign:

“I managed volunteers, created call lists, made calls, made packets for people to take with them when they were going to be going door-to-door, registered voters, decided where volunteers would go and tried to come up with more creative ways to communicate with people. When I started out a typical day was 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. We had Sundays off or we started at noon. When I became a field organizer, the day was 9 a.m. until midnight except for Fridays when it was 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. When the convention was getting closer in August, 9 a.m. to midnight was a good day. By the end of October, 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. was a good day. The last week if you got to sleep at all it was a good day.”

According to the Obama campaign website, “Field Organizers (FOs) are the face of Organizing for America in communities across the country, working to advance President Obama’s and the Democrats’ agenda and grow the grassroots movement for electoral success in 2012.”  The Obama campaign is still taking applications, for those interested in the task as hand.  For those less inclined to join, the online interview questions are a lesson in community organizing.  The last line asks about work eligibility, and includes a choice for “non-citizen seeking work authorization.”  Hmm.  I believe there was an Executive Order concerning that. 

The Obama campaign has fifteen publicly identified field organizers for Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley and Boulder already and is obviously expanding earlier in the cycle this time.  In 2008, the Obama campaign opened a campaign office in Estes Park in late September or the beginning of October.  In terms of time, the effort will be tripled this time, at minimum.  Barack Obama won Estes Park by 4% in 2008 (less than his statewide margin).

The Obama campaign will rely even more on intensive, paid staff work in 2012, not just Hope and wishes.

In 2010, Dr. Jill Vecchio founded the first state chapter of a national organization called Docs4 Patient Care.  Physicians are uniquely positioned to understand the implications of ObamaCare, as its provisions begin taking effect in the years ahead.

As part of their educational effort, Dr. Vecchio produced a series of videos explaining different aspects of the health care law.  Part One of the series explains who will be covered by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.  Check out the discussion of comparative data on survival rates and first treatment rates toward the end of the video.

TeaLiberty.com will link to one installment of the seven-part series each Saturday going forward.  Schedule just ten minutes each week to check out an installment.  By the end of this series, you will know more about ObamaCare than Nancy Pelosi and her supporters did when they passed the law.

Ted Nugent was at the NRA Convention this past weekend and created a firestorm when he spoke out candidly against the current administration. As a result of his comments, he is being investigated by the Secret Service. In fact, today he is meeting with the Secret Service, what Ted calls “a BBQ”.

At the NRA Convention Ted was supporting Mitt Romney and voicing his frustration with this current administration. The main comment that got Ted in trouble was when he said that if Obama is elected as our President again he will be dead or in jail this time next year. A couple of other comments that he made were; we need to clean house in this vile, evil, American hating administration, and as patriots we need to ride into the battle field and chop their heads off in November.

Now I think we all know what he means. And I think we share the same frustration. Maybe Ted went a bit too far when he said that he would either be dead or in jail this time next year if Obama is re-elected, but aren’t we all extremely frustrated with the state of things in our nation right now?

Watch the video with Ted’s comments.

Now you need to compare what Ted said with what Louis Farrakhan said this week. Farrakhan isn’t being investigated by the Secret Service. Why not?

Following is a link to a segment on GBTV where Glenn Beck shares about the real Ted Nugent.

A new law, the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 (H.R. 347) was signed by Obama in early March 2012 which makes it illegal to protest in his presence.

Regardless of where you stand politically, this is very scary. This is Germany 1933!

The new law signed in secret means that wherever Obama is you do not have a right to ask him anything you want to. His secret service can have you arrested, fined, and imprisoned for more than a YEAR if you ask him something he doesn’t like or doesn’t want to answer. This sounds as if he’s becoming more like Hitler than Lincoln. THIS IS HIS LATEST ATTEMPT TO STAGE A TAKE OVER OF AMERICA.

Rep. Cory Gardner voted for this bill. In fact all of the Republican and Democrat Reps. from Colorado voted for this bill. It is interesting that Ron Paul did not vote.

May the Lord have mercy on us!!!!
