Las Vegas NV tea party, August 31, 2009, Tea Party Express, Citizen Wells report, Sports Center of Las Vegas, Nevada, Will CNN and MSM cover this tea party?

Yesterday, the Citizen Wells Blog posted the announcement of a Tea Party to be held today, Monday, August 31, 2009 in Las Vegas, NV. We have a reporter on the scene and will provide updates as we get them. CNN is supposed to have their CNN Express news bus on the scene in Nevada and hopefully other media outlets will cover this story. Will Harry Reid pay attention?

Thanks Upstate Warrior for this video link:

“Rally Held Against Big Government
Las Vegans Hold Tea Party Rally

POSTED: 5:48 pm PDT August 31, 2009

Hundreds of people protested in Las Vegas against what they characterized as big government.

 Those who turned out at the Sports Center of Las Vegas Monday for the Tea Party Rally criticized what they call big government — things like bailouts and deficit spending — as they waved signs.

*** Update from on the scene reporter – September 1, 2009 5:30 PM ET ***

“CW,  We were at the Party from 8:45am to 2:00pm.”

“We were there first.”

“We were not allowed to be by the grandstand,… due to our signs.  THEY WERE ANTI OBAMA.  The organizer said that the media would have a hay-day with them.  (ridiculous to say the least….. XXXX (my husband was HOT!)  I WILL SEND YOU PICS OF THEM”

Look for more pictures soon. 

Here is the announcement from yesterday:
“ATTENTION NEVADANS: We need your urgent help!
We here at the Tea Party Express have been informed by several national news media outlets that they will be on hand to cover our “Tea Party Express” rally in Las Vegas, Nevada this Monday, August 31st at 11:00 AM.  The rally will be held at the Sports Center of Las Vegas (located at 121 E. Sunset Road).
We know this is not the most convenient time for some people to attend a rally, but we simply must have a huge crowd on hand.  To help underscore why this is so important, consider this:  CNN is planning on having their CNN Express news bus.  Some news outlets will be broadcasting live.  We can’t afford to have a rally with a small crowd on hand (especially given how successful the “Tea Party Express” rallies have been so far these first two days).
So we need your help.  If you live close enough to Las Vegas to attend the rally (even if you have to take an early lunch) then PLEASE make it to the rally.  Load up your car with as many people as you can.
If you live too far away, or absolutely cannot attend, then we need your help to get the word out.  Forward this email on to everyone you know.  Post messages to online discussion forums and blogs.  Call anyone and everyone you know who lives in or near Las Vegas.
11:00 AM — Las Vegas “Tea Party Express” Rally

  1. A little good news. We registered Democrats will do everything we can to help the Republicans. Obama and machine have got to go. Please God make it soon.
    At the mid-August Netroots Nation convention, Nate Silver, a Democratic analyst whose uncannily accurate, stat-driven predictions have made his website a must read among political junkies, predicted that Republicans will win between 20 and 50 seats next year. He further alarmed an audience of progressive activists by arguing that the GOP has between a 25 and 33 percent chance of winning back control of the House.

  2. Honestly wish I could attend, but as I’m in RI, and I’m back to work, it’s a bit out of the way. doing what i can from here.

    On another note, the Patriots Heart Network will be selling my book on its site…believe they’ll be offering a 10% discount during its first week.

    John Adams and John Hancock gave this response to a British major who ordered them and those with them to disperse in the name of George the sovereign King of England on April 18 1775.

    Congressional Research Service
    Treatment of Noncitizens in H.R. 3200
    August 25, 2009

    This report outlines the treatment of noncitizens (aliens) under H.R. 3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009. In particular, the report analyzes specific provisions in H.R. 3200, and whether there are eligibility requirements for noncitizens in the provisions…………….
    Thus, legal permanent residents, and noncitizens and unauthorized aliens who qualify as resident aliens (i.e., meet the substantial presence test), would be required under H.R. 3200 to have health insurance.

  6. The Canadian media are already reporting on the Congressional Research Service report. Where is the American press? Out to lunch? Rolling over and playing dead? Got their heads where the sun don’t shine? As angry as I am about what Congress is doing to our country , I am angrier that the press is letting them do it without even a whimper!

    Congressional Research Service: Illegal Aliens Can Receive Benefits Under House Health Care Bill
    Saturday, 29 August 2009
    Tuesday, the Congressional Research Service (CRS), the “research arm” for the United States Congress, issued a report validating an analysis by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), that illegal aliens would be able to receive benefits under the House health care reform bill, America’s Affordable Health Care Act of 2009 (H.R. 3200).

  7. Will there be any live Internet news feed to view this event in Nevada? If so, please provide the link info, if you know or have it; THANKS.

  8. Just got on line today and will be catching up later. I ask for your prayers for a young man who was flying to school overseas and has not arrived yet. He was supposed to get to his destination Saturday but has not been heard from yet. Thank you so much. God bless you.

  10. Here in WV were haveing a sept 7th rally in holden WV,Sean Hanity plus concert,at least 60,000 have signed up to attened so far,this is gonna be huge!There bringing in troopers from all over the state for extra sec,lol.

  11. Linda from NY

    Katie: That was a great article! Thank you for highlighting it; the article explains why the media may be afraid to discuss the birth certificate issue. It also explains what may be behind what is happening to our beloved country at present.

  12. I just met the with district Superintendant of our schools. Known cases of H1N1 will NOT be reported under there standard flu procedure (gag order). Children with documented H1N1 are to remain home for 24 hours. Furthermore, school will NOT be suspended for an outbreak unless “too many teachers are sick and subs can not be found. Which would make operating impossible.” The school nurse is currently working with the state to become a site for vaccination. As Beck would say “Isn’t that FANTASTIC!”

  13. Linda from NY

    Prairie: Wow! You must be frantic with worry! If your school district is a vaccination site, do you know if you can refuse the vaccine be given to your children? And if so, do you have to contact your family physician for advice/support?

  14. Jacqlyn Smith

    I cut and pasted your comment from Orly’s site along with another comment and emailed them to a friend who has a friend who just got out of special forces. Not sure if he is still on active duty. If true, this is seriuos. Get all the troops in Afghanistan and drop a big one

  15. Linda from NY

    Kudos383: Wow! That sounds exciting! 60,000 signed up to attend? A crowd that size would make local authorities nervous! Providing extra security may just be a precaution but hopefully, it will be a peaceful protest. Thanks for sharing that info.

  16. Linda,
    I made sure the medical forms and releases I needed to complete for sports did not include consent to vaccine. My boys are VERY aware that under no circumstance are they to get the vaccine. I am thinking of the homeschool option for this year if I must. I am now writing an article for my local paper to report the schools intentions.

  17. Linda from NY

    Prairie: Glad you had the foresight to take those precautions for your guys. I Homeschooled my daughter from third grade through high school. Should you decide to go that route, I can tell you I am not sorry I did. It was very rewarding, and it saved us both from being controlled by the district. I was required to send in quarterly progress reports and abide by state education regulations, but it was no big deal. I do not know in what state you reside, but if you need help [should you decide to Homeschool], I would be more than happy to help. Will pray for you, too.

  18. Do people realize the full ramifications of this Health Care debacle? Illegals (conservative estimate to be around 40-50 MILLION) become instant U.S. Citizens, to which includes the benefits of FULL Social Security, Food Stamps, the list goes on.

    Great article on The Real Ted Kennedy, rest his soul

  19. Jacqlyn Smith,
    Thanks for the follow up to our discussion.

  20. Linda from NY
    Thanks for your concern, I might take you up on that.

  21. Linda from NY

    DABIG: Yup! At least, I do. This legal expert is tackling the House Health Care Bill using the Dart Approach, and he has already admitted the bill is incomprehensible. Whoever wrote this bill certainly did not want anyone to easily refute it.

  22. Linda from NY

    Prairie: You are very welcome. The offer stands as long as I am standing…LOL.

  23. I do not believe the email is true. I googled the judge’s name…….nothing.

    Strange considering he got hit by a semi….no newspaper mention?

    Strange since, as a judge, his rulings would have been a matter of public record…

    Strange that no wife, sister, brother or mother of another of these jailed servicemen would have not spoken out…..

    No….this is just another diversion or another attempt by the left to make us look bad

  24. Thanks Linda that’s a good link. I noticed Obama had to address this issue at his last town hall meeting, he reassured the people that no illegals would be getting this benefit, that’s right though, their intention is to pass legislation to make them all legals.

  25. Linda from NY

    DABIG: Of course, they want to pass legislation to make them “Legals.” Who else is going to vote for him in 2010? Except, maybe, paid ACORN workers.

    TRUTH NOW: I listened to a video that Beck made where he read a letter from a woman named Carreras, and I have not been able to locate it since. Can you help? I have look on the listing, and it does not appear to be there. Thanks for anything you can do. It was an awesome letter.

  32. Sandy,

    Does appear far fetched, but never can know now a days. There was reports that hundreds of military was following Maj Cook in refusing. What happened to them?

  33. Patriot Dreamer

    There is no enforcement mechanism in any of the bills (that I have seen) that would check on their status as citizens or legal residents, so even if they are technically prohibited, it would be a law without any “teeth”.

    Regarding the Omolo interview

    I never said that “I” believed Omolo. Its clear that regardless of his knowledge of the family, he was stunned hearing the interview, and that he is a hearsay source of information, not admissable in court.

    However, theoretically I can image how you can parse a dialogue to get a confused response: e. g.:

    Q: “Where where you when Washington was born, were you present with his mother at the hopsital?”

    A: Yes I was present at New York City when he was born.


    Now depending where you put the pause or commas in the Answer, you get different results even in English, as to what was said:

    Example 1:A: Yes; I was present at New York City, when he was born.

    Example 2: Yes I was present at New York city when he was born.


    I admit that I have only looked at the interview transcription, and that briefly….it did not seem clear to me that she said one thing or the other. If you ask 2 questions simultaneously these things happen. That’s why I like the interview method at The Post & Email, since it is done in writing…scriptum manet…

    As for putting spin on the Mombasa story…that’s bull hockey…

    Facts are facts…if you know Sarah Obama’s native language, say so: otherwise you opinion about what she said and intended to say, is worthless. Native speakers have given their opinions, its not going to resolve anything, if the actual statement is ambiguous, or the context confusing…

    If you hate Obama so much that you don’t want a reality in which he is not in all the details as detestable as you wish, fine…but that’s not reality…that’s your choice of perception of it….

    Have a bear and chill out…this is not a football game where we honk at the opposition merely because they are the opposition…

  39. Thanks to all who prayed. The young man abroad has been located.

  40. Patriot Dreamer

    Remember the school security officer Wesley Cheeks, Jr. incident where he threatened to arrest the protester because he didn’t like his protest sign? Here’s an article from the protester, Bob Parks:

    RE: The Story of Gandhi’s Protest at the Salt Mines

    My life is not my own these days and I can’t always respond as quickly as I would like. No offense taken if you disagree with me. In the process of sharing opposing views sheds the truth and quite often, I have grown a little wiser because of it.

    I whole heartedly agree with you, OldSalt. If I knew I would be facing “certain death” by a bullet, I too would do everything necessary to save my life and defeat the enemy. If it comes to an all out civil war, I would use everything in my power to fight for the America you and I believe in against the self righteous brain dead communist pigs who are currently looting America and attempting to steal America once and for all.

    For those of you who may have more factual information regarding the salt mine incident in Gandhi’s India, correct me if the following are not the facts.

    Not one bullet was fired at the men who stood two by two and faced the British that day. The Indians were not stepping forward to face a bullet. The British simply used their billy clubs and knocked them to the ground. Though I am certain it was quite painful to be billy clubbed to the ground, as far as I know, not one person was killed in that incident. I point out this story specifically because it was one of the most effective non violent protests against their oppressor’s in history. That incident was the turning point in India’s history in taking back their sovereignty –with out a full blazing bloody civil war.

    The difference between India—then and America now is that most all of India was united against an easily identifiable common enemy—a foreign invader government. Gandhi’s peaceful resistance was so successful because nearly all of the people agreed and believed in the same purpose.

    Here and now, almost half the people in America have not even reached the first step—identifying there is a problem. Many still think America is still a republic and Obama is a “good guy”. Therefore we not only have the government to fight but other Americans who think Communisim is a good idea.

    Most all the posters on CWells site clearly recognize that America has been infiltrated by a radical Communist group who are rushing to turn America into a Fascist/Socialist government so as to enslave America for its own lust for power.

    If I may say we—meaning me and the people who post on this blog–We are already fighting the fight through our constant research and information we share. We see the very strong possibility of a civil war leading to a revolution in a more than near future if some very vital issues are not resolved peacefully. The last resort is civil war. The last thing I want to see in America. I fear for the lives of all Americans if it comes to civil war. It truly will be brother against brother, black against white, Christian against Muslim and family against family.

    I suspect Barry thugs would welcome a civil war to justify their plans of genocide. I fear this government will unleash violent crimes against us greater than any could imagine. When it is over, regardless of which side wins, there will be no winners.

    I know when I look to Gandhi’s techniques to win independence for India, I am grasping at straws. I so desperately want to see America restored to the Republic, under God, ruled by the Constitution written by our fore fathers, I will explore and check out every idea and every other method possible—no matter how much of a long shot it may be –if means it could restore America to the Republic she was without civil war.

    I also believe that most of the people who voted for Obama are the same type of people who want to believe in Santa Clause. They bought into a fantasy and in their own befuddled minds thought they were doing right by America. These deluded voters are awakening to reality on an hourly basis. They feel used, abused, and betrayed. We mainly just feel “pissed off” because we knew prior to elections Barry was a bad choice.

    Yes, Oldsalt77, I too will shoot to kill and choose to die fighting than live enslaved. Before that happens, we must have first exhausted every peaceful effort to remove Barry & Michele from the WH and restore America! What inspired me about the people of Gandhi’s India is they took back India with only their bodies and their determination to do so. I belileve as Americans awaken by the thousands, we can and will succeed in taking back America peacefully/

  45. Hey guys, of interest i.e.,
    Martial Law

    “Therefore, unless within the Constitution itself lurks some power to set aside or suspend it, with no guarantee of its ever being reestablished, “martial law” is utterly impossible, as a direct contradiction of the Constitution’s legal supremacy. And no such power exists. For example—

    (i) Congress cannot authorize “martial law” by dint of any of its express powers, because no such express power can be found in the Constitution. Congress cannot do it by dint of an implied power, either. For, although Congress does have the power “[t]o make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution” its enumerated powers [Article I, § 8, cl. 18], none of its enumerated powers relates to “martial law”—and therefore no implied power can be exercised in relation to that subject. In any event, Congress can enact only “Laws” pursuant to both its express and its implied powers; and no mere “Law[ ]” can override the Constitution.

    (ii) Neither can the President authorize “martial law”. Although the President is “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States” [Article II, § 2, cl. 1], in that capacity or any other he has no authority to make any “Laws of the United States”, or to set aside or suspend any of the “Laws” then in existence (unless perhaps those “Laws” themselves so provide). Rather, his constitutional duty is to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed” [Article II, § 3]. So, if no “Law[ ]” allowing “martial law” exists, the duty to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed” requires the President to refrain from any involvement whatsoever with “martial law”, except to prevent anyone else from attempted to impose it.”

  48. “You are being deceived by a president who hasn’t even shown you his birth certificate.”

  49. I read Edwin Viera’s study of martial law and wonder why they will respect any law governing the declaration of martial law since they are operating outside of the constitution anyway. And aren’t there executive orders (from previous presidents)that allow the suspension of the constitution and the implementation of martial law in an emergency?

  50. Katie @ 12:54,

    I just got back from Whole Foods. I have to work tomorrow so I made the trip today. I drove 40 minutes to support the store. The manager told me that they had protesters outside the store last week. She said they were Union workers.

    I spent $168 and will send my receipt to the corp office. I bought the Silver – it is Sovereign Silver – I hope that’s Ok. I’m not much of a health food freak, but they had very nice meats and luckily my favorites were on sale … Ribeye steaks, Tuna, etc..

    Please everyone, check to see if you have a Whole Foods in your area and please try to show your support and shop there. This isn’t really about the healthscare thing .. this is about FREE SPEECH!

    Thanks for the info. I really enjoyed my shopping experience at WF and will make a weekly trip.

  51. Just for giggles, this is Howie Carr’s daily poll on WRKO radio in Boston:

  52. Val – good for you! We simply have to stand up to the “protesters” (aka DOMESTIC TERRORISTS) and show the businesses that CAPITALISM WORKS!

  53. Here are the executive orders:
    10995 – Seizure of all communications media.
    10997 – Seizure of all electrical power and fossil fuels.
    10998 – Seizure of all food resources, farms and farm equipment.
    10999 – Seizure of all transportation and control of all highways and seaports.
    11000 – Seizure of all civilians for work under Federal supervision.
    11001 – Federal takeover of all health, education and welfare.
    11002 – Authorizes FEMA to order Postmaster General to register every man, woman and child in the United States.
    11003 – Seizure of all aircraft and airports.
    11004 – Housing and Finance given authority for population relocation.
    11005 – Seizure of railroads, inland waterways, and storage facilities.
    11051 – The Director of the Office of Emergency Planning authorized to put Executive Orders into effect in “times of increased international tension or financial crisis”. Is also to perform such additional functions as the President may direct.
    E. O. 12919 was signed into law by President Clinton June 3, 1994, which gathers together into one document the authority of the previously mentioned 11 Executive Orders. This means that FEMA would take over 28 Executive Departments and Agencies whenever the President of the United States declares a national emergency. This was all made possible by the 1933 War Emergency Powers Act, which authorizes the President to suspend the Constitution. There is no known Executive Order outlining the restoration of the Constitution after the national emergency has ended.

    That’s true, however, one also has to wonder why
    WE would obey also.

  60. Katie,

    LOL ! I had no plans to go shopping today! But after I read that article … off I went!



    The article states Obama is close to the point of no return (with his popularity). I think the line has already been crossed.

    The question now is what can the public expect?
    What genre of bullying tactics (you know the ones that have been operating all along, but nobody wanted to see) can one expect?

    Will it be, oops, too bad the health care bill has already been passed.

    Or will it be… while everybody was busy with something else, the Constitution no longer applies and these now are the new rules.

    Or will it just be more of the same.

  62. Since 75% of Americans support it, I guess it’s time for us Seventy-Five Percenters to be heard.
    I wonder where Obama gets his figures from-thin air? I am a Democrat and many of my Democrat friends are against this Health Plan from Hell. His numbers are tanking more and more everyday, never to get better. He had his chance and he blew it big time. People see him for what he really is now, not the cardboard made up caricature of the campaign. Experts are correct double digit Dem losses and they have earned every loss. I think the biggest reason is their out of control, power mad, South Side of Chicago strong arm tactics with violence and/or threats of violence. Reminded me of the civil rights struggle when they were turning the hoses on the small children, wasn’t right then, isn’t right now.

  63. I wanted to offer support to Whole Foods Market so I ordered a gift card online for my daughter in Los Angeles. She lost her job as a graphic artist for an ad agency a few months ago.

    Her unemployment check was mailed to wrong address twice so she’s struggling and confessed to me that she has no food. She’s a vegetarian so she’ll love to shop at Whole Foods Market.

    Thanks for the great idea!

    BTW Do you know of anyone wanting to hire graphic artist?

  64. Last week a caller to a local radio station
    gave a great summary of the work of
    Dr. Orly Taitz. He then asked if the station
    would like to extend an interview to her.
    They agreed as long as the time differential
    could be worked out. I’ll keep listening for
    Orly on WTVN radio.

    is no copy and it’s not on order. What’s up
    with that? CML used to be rated #1 or #2

  71. Linda from NY,

    Thanks, I passed the info on to my daughter.

    The possibility of finding a job in LA is pretty slim, since unemployment is so high. I suggested that she come back to the midwest and look but she’s not ready to give it up yet.

    The problem with the Whole Food gift card is that delivery will take about 4 days. So I found the store near her and emailed them to see if I could pay them online or by phone and she could pick up some groceries today or tomorrow. That would get her by until the gift card or her unemployment check arrives. Hope to hear from them shortly.

    Obama’s Uncle Omar who has been here illegally since teh 1960’s should run for Mayor or Governor

  73. FROM ORLY’s site:

    I have been seeing this come for a long time and now Obama authorizes Muslims to enter the country and we pay for it and also athourized 1,400,000 religious visas. We ship our troops to Muslim nations to be slaughtered there while the enemy is being imported here to attack us when our military has been shipped out.

    Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn

    [NY Sun title: “Steyn’s New Book Combines Humor, Accuracy, Depth”]

    Mark Steyn, political columnist and cultural critic, has written a remarkable book, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It (Regnery). He combines several virtues uncommonly found together – humor, accurate reportage, and deep thinking – then applies these to what is arguably the most consequential issue of our time: the Islamist threat to the West.

    Mr. Steyn offers a devastating thesis but presents it in bits and pieces, so I shall pull it together here.

    He begins with the legacy of two totalitarianisms. Traumatized by the electoral appeal of fascism, post-World War II European states were constructed in a top-down manner “so as to insulate almost entirely the political class from populist pressures.” As a result, the establishment has “come to regard the electorate as children.”

    Second, the Soviet menace during the cold war prompted American leaders, impatient with Europe’s (and Canada’s) weak responses, effectively to take over their defense. This benign and far-sighted policy led to victory by 1991, but it also had the unintended and less salutary side-effect of freeing up Europe’s funds to build a welfare state. This welfare state had several malign implications.

    The nanny state infantilized Europeans, making them worry about such pseudo-issues as climate change, while feminizing the males. It also neutered them, annexing “most of the core functions of adulthood,” starting with the instinct to breed. From about 1980, birth rates plummeted, leaving an inadequate base for today’s workers to receive their pensions.
    Structured on a pay-as-you-go basis, it amounted to an inter-generational Ponzi scheme, where today’s workers depend on their children for their pensions. The demographic collapse meant that the indigenous peoples of countries like Russia, Italy, and Spain are at the start of a population death spiral.

    It led to a collapse of confidence that in turn bred “civilizational exhaustion,” leaving Europeans unprepared to fight for their ways. To keep the economic machine running meant accepting foreign workers. Rather than execute a long-term plan to prepare for the many millions of immigrants needed, Europe’s elites punted, welcoming almost anyone who turned up. By virtue of geographic proximity, demographic overdrive, and a crisis-prone environment, “Islam is now the principal supplier of new Europeans,” Mr. Steyn writes.

    Mark Steyn, author of “America Alone.”

    Arriving at a time of demographic, political, and cultural weakness, Muslims are profoundly changing Europe. “Islam has youth and will, Europe has age and welfare.” Put differently, “Pre-modern Islam beats post-modern Christianity.” Much of the Western world, Mr. Steyn flat-out predicts, “will not survive the twenty-first century, and much of it will effectively disappear within our lifetimes, including many if not most European countries.” With even more drama, he adds that “it’s the end of the world as we know it.”
    (In contrast, I believe that Europe still has time to avoid this fate.)

    America Alone deals at length with what Mr. Steyn calls “the larger forces at play in the developed world that have left Europe too enfeebled to resist its remorseless transformation into Eurabia.” Europe’s successor population is already in place and “the only question is how bloody the transfer of real estate will be.” He interprets the Madrid and London bombings, as well as the murder of Theo van Gogh in Amsterdam, as opening shots in Europe’s civil war and states, “Europe is the colony now.”

    The title America Alone refers to Mr. Steyn’s expectation that the United States – with its “relatively healthy demographic profile” – will emerge as the lonely survivor of this crucible. “Europe is dying and America isn’t.” Therefore, “the Continent is up for grabs in a way that America isn’t.” Mr. Steyn’s target audience is primarily American: watch out, he is saying, or the same will happen to you.

    Pared to its essentials, he counsels two things: First, avoid the “bloated European welfare systems,” declare them no less than a national security threat, shrink the state, and emphasize the virtues of self-reliance and individual innovation. Second, avoid “imperial understretch,” don’t “hunker down in Fortress America” but destroy the ideology of radical Islam, help reform Islam, and expand Western civilization to new places. Only if Americans “can summon the will to shape at least part of the emerging world” will they have enough company to soldier on. Failing that, expect a “new Dark Ages … a planet on which much of the map is re-primitivized.”

    Big question: When Muslims rule the Earth, will they be capable to build civilization? Or will their rule only be one of numbers?

    Wake up EUROPE if you wish to retain your culture.
