The Tea Party is a group of people who say they are taxed enough already and people who are concerned about our government’s assault on faith, freedom, and moral values. When we need funds to put an advertisement in the papers, to pay for the use of Bond Park, Performance Park, our website (TEALIBERTY.COM), or an ad in the Estes Park website.we pass a hat. Most everyone throws $20 or so. We don’t take money from any other group or organization. We then decide why, when, where we need to meet. We set up the chairs and clean up after ourselves. We feel it is our responsibility to act. This is our town, our state, and our country.
Other solutions we talk about are getting rid of the entitlement mentality, encouraging others to be actors (not spectators) in our towns, state and country, because We the People are responsible for our government. We must choose carefully who we want to run for our legislatures. We ask them to come and tell us what are their values and goals.. We, the Tea Party, cannot support any candidate, but we can sure investigate their standards and then support them individually if we approve of them.
Each one of us makes it his duty to vote . We don’t want to be victims of circumstances. We also pass out flyers to alert our neighbors to pending problems in the townat the same time we urge everyone to go out and vote his own conscience. We are very aware that the present administration is intent on getting rid of not only the U.S., but entire Western Civilization.
We don’t want to leave our children a country without liberty run by a lot of Harvard Elitists. We want our children and grand children to have the same advantages that we have had.

Occupy With Tents! (Photo credit: Lincoln Adams)
by Mack Hunt
President Obama and other liberal supporters have said that the Occupy Party was their answer to and “just like” the Tea Party. Perhaps we can compare these movements by comparing some facts. I hope the public is interested in facts. There have been thousands of Tea Party rallies in the past 3 years and no Tea Party member has been arrested. In the past year, the Occupy Party has had over 4,200 arrests. These Occupy Party people were arrested for rape, drug possession, damaging police cars, drunkenness, concealed weapons, vandalism, trespassing, felony assault and other felonies . There were a couple of arrests of individuals that were protesting the Tea Party at two or three Tea Parties
in the US, but no Tea Party members. The estimated arson damage by the Occupy Party was over 15 Million Dollars, which includes over 10 million dollars of arson in Colorado. There was no arson damage at any Tea Parties. The Occupy Party cost the US taxpayers well over 22 Million Dollars in property damages, police patrols and cleaning up their garbage. There was no reported cost to the Tax payers incurred by Tea Parties. The Occupy Party threw Molotov Cocktails to protest American values. None of this at any Tea Parties! The Occupy Party had antisemitic signs, rants and chants while they burned an Israeli flag. None at any Tea Parties. The Occupy Party was not only endorsed by the White House but they have also been endorsed and supported by the Socialist Party of America, The Nazi Party of America, Muslim Brotherhood, The Communist Party of America, Hezbollah, Iran, North Korea and many other anti-American groups. None of these groups have endorsed any Tea Party. I am sorry President Obama, but I do not see any similarities, but of course I never went to Harvard because I had to pay my own way through college. Regardless, I support the rights of the Occupy Party people to free speech and the right to peaceably assembly as granted by the Constitution. However, with those rights and privileges there also comes citizen responsibility.

In another moment of sheer Boulder genious, a judge has ruled that sleeping protesters inside a tent placed illegally on public property have a “reasonable expectation of privacy.” Prior Colorado decisions recognize an expectation of privacy inside camping tents. Therefore, Occupy protestors can pitch tents on public property and obtain Fourth Amendment protections against “unreasonable” searches and seizures by the dirty cops who try to enforce the law against camping.
Keep in mind that Boulder is the same community that voted in November symbolically killed corporate personhood. In the People’s Republic of Boulder, evil corporations have no constitutional rights–by citizen fiat. Thus, if these same hippies incorporate, law enforcement could contend that the Fourth Amendment can never apply to their activities.
Lefty corporations that supported the November 2011 ballot measure included Moveon.org and the Rocky Mountain Peace & Justice Center. These evil corporations organized an Occupy Boulder rally to favor Boulder Ballot Issue 2H. In fact, Rocky Mountain Peace & Justice Center has been incorporated in Colorado since 1983. Furthermore, under the terms of their incorporation, this organization claims “perpetual” existence. In other words, this group is immortal.
No Justice, No Peace until this closet corporation is shut down. I hope the City of Boulder’s appeal will assert that law enforcement reasonably believed the persons illegally camping by the Courthouse were acting on behalf of a corporation (!!!)–and therefore have no Fourth Amendment rights. That part of the appeal would fail, but at least it would teach Occupy Boulder a lesson about double standards–and completely undermine their nonsensical views of constitutional rights.

Like the average Coloradoans they claim to represent, the Occupy Denver movement has grown bored with its Denver encampment. That’s why they decided to strike in Loveland this week, joining West Coasters in an effort to obstruct commerce. Protesters tried to disrupt a Walmart Distribution Center in Loveland. In fact, the Loveland Reporter-Herald article reports that one of the organizers was from Occupy Oakland.
Some folks thought my increasing “hippie ratio” prediction arising from Congressional Redistricting was extreme. After all, how could moving Larimer County into Jared Polis’ Boulder-centric Second Congressional District change anything? Well it took just one week people. Soon, the peaceful citizens of Loveland will be subjected to a wave of UC-Boulder “College Know it All Hippies” that make South Park look like a documentary.

The Denver Anarchist Black Cross is a key organization behind Occupy Denver. Their blog provides an in-depth look from inside the movement at what’s happening with Occupy Denver. DABC says:
“This is a war. And our side is being hammered by an overwhelming police state hellbent on destroying social movements fighting for popular power and direct control over our lives. But, we’re fighting like hell. And we’re gaining ground. That’s why the state is fighting back as hard as they can. They have to crush us. Because we are a threat to everything they’re struggling to maintain their control over.”
Read more here. (h/t CompleteColorado.com for link) Of course the anarchists neglect to mention that this is a war they started. Every legal violation perpetrated by Occupy Denver is simply a pretext for radicalizing young protestors. When activists claim to speak for the “99 percent” beware. That’s a sign of the authoritarian mindset if there ever was one.

Bloggers from across the U.S. visited Denver this week for BlogCon11. Occupy Denver was not amused. On Friday afternoon, several protestors invaded the lobby of the conference’s hotel, yelling and screaming meaningless slogans. The Occupy movement apparently believes that all bloggers are part of “the 1 percent” (cough–cough) or even all on the payroll of the Koch brothers, a belief refuted by Human Events.
Their disruptive efforts did trigger a massive division among BlogCon attendees between “Tastes Great” and “Less Filling.” Elpresidente of People’s Press Collective posted video of the poor occupiers surrounded by conservative bloggers, who appeared to outnumber the 99% by about ten to one. In this video, it looks like twenty to one. One misguided occupier was arrested, apparently after pushing a police officer & refusing to leave the hotel lobby. KOA 850am carried a report Saturday morning where an Occupier claimed they didn’t want to disrupt the meeting, just “remind” bloggers of their existence.
The Occupy Denver folks epic failed in their efforts to disrupt the conservatives’ conference. That was despite the appearance and support of a a class of 17-year old school girls from St Mary’s Academy.
Perhaps their Friday protest was just one more reason for Denver police to clear Civic Center Park Saturday evening. Here’s a report from MarathonPundit on Saturday’s efforts to clear out the Occupy rabble from Civic Center Park. Peter “Datechguy” from Massachusetts went to mass at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Saturday night and found himself in the middle of the eviction. As Yidwithlid put it, the Occupy Denver movement was evicted before the end of BlogCon. No word on whether the border collie, who was voted leader of Occupy Denver, was ever able to collect the milk bones BlogCon11 offered to Occupy’s illustrious leader. If they aren’t careful, Occupy’s leader could switch sides. Canines aren’t much influenced by Marxist dogma (compared to dog biscuits).
Thanks to all the conservative and libertarian bloggers who bore witness to the ridiculousness of Occupy Denver.
