No Diehl

An effort is in action to prevent the ascension of Representative Diehl to the Missouri House Speakership.  CCTP doesn’t take positions on such issues, however, we pass this along for your information:

From Laura Hausladen:

Greetings,

The project is gaining some momentum, but it’s time to kick it into high gear as we have just 3 weeks until the November Election.  I would like to have a conference call tomorrow evening at 8:30 for anybody who wants to weigh in on strategy going forward.  I see it as less of an organized call, and more of a session for idea gathering and question asking/answering.  Let’s try this:  8:30-9:15 weigh in with ideas, etc.  9:15-9:35 or so call in for a a recap and a general outline of what needs to be done and projections on how it will be done.

Dial-in Number: 605-781-1000
Access Code: 733172

Time: Tues, Oct. 14th 8:30 or 9:15 for recap

Accomplished:

About to come on line:

  • The letter writing campaign!!  (Within 24 hours or so)
  • An additional on-line info-gram style web page  (soon!)

Please do the following now:

  1. Invite people you know to go to MoLeadershipProject.org to sign the petition.
  2. Invite your FaceBook friends to go to the FaceBook Page ‘The Missouri Leadership Project’  and LIKE it
  3. Let your representative know that you do not want them to vote for John Diehl.

 

Many thanks to all of you!  Please call or write any time with suggestions/questions/help.  (And if you call, please be sure to start talking on my answering machine.)

Blessings,

Ebola: Get Vocal

Continuing on his article from 10/06/10, David Epps writes:

One interesting fact (can be easily substantiated by numerous historical records and books written about the 1918 flu pandemic):

In America, the outbreak was traced back to patient zero at a Kansas army training base who had traveled from an infected area of the world.  Quarters were extremely close at training camps and little was known at the time how the disease spread.  Troop trains from this base to other parts of the US spread the disease quickly.And right now we are sending troops who have received no useful training to the pandemic area and who have no real purpose of being there other than political.  Those troops will be returning to the US into largely the same kinds of close-quarters conditions as in 1918, albeit with a few more modern conveniences.

Since we quarantine possible Ebola victims in Dallas (those that came in contact with the dead guy) then quarantine the countries of origin and stop the spread period.

 

David also points out:

I hope you get vocal about the Ebola threat.

Every precaution must be taken for it is deadly. 500,000 to 675,000 died in the US and 50 to 100 million died worldwide during 1918 flu pandemic.

As of 2004 there were 940,000 cases of AIDS reported and to date 529,113 deaths in the US. In 2009, The U.S. ends travel ban on HIV-positive visitors and immigrants. The ban had been in place since 1987.

Ebola is much more virulent and is easier to contract then HIV and we have yet to have a travel ban and the Obama hack at the CDC is against it and why do we want deadly incurable disease carriers, including AIDS victims, into the US anyway?

Screening for symptoms of a deadly infectious disease that may not show up for weeks is not the answer. A travel ban to and from West Africa is required by anyone holding a visa to enter the US.

 

o-EBOLA-570[1]

Also from David Epps:

The experts in the US (CDC/Obama) do not know what they are talking about.

The only established fact about Ebola is that it in 1995 in the Democratic Republic of Congo, affecting 315 and killing 254. The next major outbreak occurred in Uganda in 2000, affecting 425 and killing 224; in this case the Sudan virus was found to be the ebola virus species responsible for the outbreak In 2003 there was an outbreak in the Republic of Congo that affected 143 and killed 128, a death rate of 90%, the highest to date.

In 2012, the Ministry of Health of the Democratic Republic of the Congo reported an outbreak of the Ebola-Bundibugyo variant in the eastern region. The WHO revealed that the virus had sickened 57 people and claimed 29 lives. The probable cause of the outbreak was tainted bush meat hunted by local villagers around the towns of Isiro and Viadana.

By 3 October 2014, 7,492 suspected cases and 3,439 deaths had been reported; however, the World Health Organization has said that these numbers may be vastly underestimated.

The WHO said, “The Ebola epidemic ravaging parts of West Africa is the most severe acute public health emergency seen in modern times. Never before in recorded history has a biosafety level four pathogen infected so many people so quickly, over such a broad geographical area, for so long.”

Use some horse sense, Ebola has mutated and is deadlier than ever!

Do not ignore these facts.

Close the borders now!!!!!!

PS Ollie asked how to get more vocal. Log on to message boards everywhere (especially the liberal ones, they have a tendency believe in the experts and will follow them off a cliff) and shout out the danger. see my post on Media Matters

Ebola: Drop What You’re Doing and Take Action

By David Epps:

Drop whatever you are doing and take action

Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on Friday said restricting travel between the U.S. and West Africa would likely “backfire” and put Americans more at risk of contracting Ebola.

Appearing on MSNBC, Frieden was asked about potentially prohibiting air travel between the U.S. and West Africa, where the Ebola outbreak is most widespread. He said that such a restriction would likely be ineffective and would make it harder for health officials to root out the virus.

Read more: http://www.politico.com/story/2014/10/ebola-us-border-111581.html#ixzz3F7DcCSO3

Tom Frieden is an Obama appointee so it goes without saying his loyalties lie with the extinction of the people in the lower tier Red states with Obama’s open border policy and he is just the idiot who advised Obama to say that the US need not worry, Ebola will not reach our shores.

o-EBOLA-570[1]

He is spouting BS regarding stopping (sic commercial) flights to the US from affected countries. If the US wishes to help the affected countries the personnel can be transported via military aircraft with absolute security or continue to use charter flights. The Ebola threat threatens AMNESTY and the Open Borders proponents!

Frieden’s appearance on MSNBC was all politically motivated and a lie!!!!!
Stop all commercial flights and travelers from affected countries!!!!!!!!!!!!
Close down the southern border the route for human disease carriers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go visit any graveyard in Kansas or Missouri, and count the number of young children who died during the 1918 epidemic. You will be vary very shocked. And there exist mass graves of that time period as well. In the U.S., about 28% of the population suffered, and 500,000 to 675,000 died

The 1918 flu pandemic (January 1918 – December 1920) was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic, the first of the two pandemics involving H1N1 influenza virus. It infected 500 million people across the world, including remote Pacific islands and the Arctic, and killed 50 to 100 million of them—three to five percent of the world’s population—making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history

Replace the hack Frieden, prior to his appointment he ran a stop smoking campaign for 9 years.

Support Holly Rehder

As Conservatives, Libertarians, Constitutionalists, we ask those we support in the Missouri Legislature to make their votes based on principle and what is best for the long term health of the state.

We ask them to take that stand in the face of Party backlash, Union backlash, or other Special Interest backlash.

In the 148th district, we have a pillar of self-governance who HAS taken that principled stand for which we ask.

In two of the major votes of the year, Holly Rehder stood by her principles and voted against the party line.  She voted against the MoDOT Sales Tax Increase and she voted against the Boeing Bribe.

But, where she has really stood by principle and incurred the wrath of the Special Interests is in her push to pass the Paycheck Protection Act… …requiring unions to gain the annual approval of their members before deducting dues from their paychecks.

I know; giving the power back to the individual; crazy, right?!?! (sarcasm)

As expected, the union special interests are lining up against her and asking their members to cross the line from the Democrat voter roles and cast a vote against Holly in the Republican Primary Election.  See the attached letter send to union members.

Tea Party does not endorse candidates, so I would like to make this personal request to all of you even though I know you are 100% busy.  If you live in the 148th district, please Please PLEASE go out and vote for Holly on August 5th.  For the rest of us, if you have any Time, Talent or Treasure you can send Holly’s way, you would be doing a service to all Missourians in helping keep this pillar of self-governance in the halls of the House in Jefferson City.

See the attached file from Union Leaders admonishing their members to momentarily toss aside their Democrat principles and vote in the Republican Primary…

Rehder – Union Letter – 20140805

Thank you!

Legislative Plunder

By Janet Boston

In the Federalist Papers Plunder is explained very clearly. It is taking from one person to give to another. Our never ending social programs are a perfect example of Plunder. The government has seen fit to take from the working taxpayer to give to the non-working disadvantaged individual and create more government agencies. This is not the vision our Founders had intended for this nation. We used to take care of our citizens through community, charity, churches, Salvation Army food pantries etc.

We should not be appropriating monies from working taxpayers to support any special interest. The programs are financially overwhelming and the agencies are too many to number. It is time to take a moment to realize what burden the working class is being asked to support.(NSA, EPA, DNR, FDA, OSHA, Homeland Security, FBI, IRS, Planned Parenthood, illegal immigrants placing burdePlunder_20copy_400w[1]ns on all our facilities, aid to victims of crime, disabled programs, food stamps (SNAP), unemployment, housing, health care, welfare, utilities, Obama phones, drug programs, busing/taxis children to schools, computers for all students, free education to foreign students while raising our own children’s tuition. The list goes on. No one checks on outcomes of most of the programs. We need to audit and cut our losses.

Citizens are now we are having to protect themselves against NSA, EPA, DNR, Homeland Security and IRS. Government is too big and becoming too intrusive. We are supposed to be living in a free society not direct our lives to the plow of financial support of social programs. We are to lift people up not make dependent children out of them. Our country has become an entitlement society by the hand of legislators. When are we going to put a time limit on all subsidies?

Stop Legislating the Plunder!

Global Warming… …Nonsense

By David Epps
48,000,000 billion tons of carbon is sequestered in the limestone(CaCO3) of planet earth.
1,000 billion tons of carbon is sequestered in coal and oil (0.002%)

Both formed over the last 200 million years. Think about it!

If you believe that burning the coal and oil on planet earth will return the earths temperature to that of the dinosaur (Jurassic) period or create any global warming at all, you are seriously delusional and operating from irrational fear.

Now, Ice ages occur about every 150,000 years and glaciers have covered the North American continent as far south as St. Louis, MO and Carbondale, IL.

Long Island was formed during the last ice age just ended 21,000 years ago.

The interglacial (warm) periods  last only about 30,000 years and that is something to be fearful of!  Bundle up buttercup!

The global warming agenda is a costly political power grab to take over (nationalize) the energy industry! But we all know that: Our utility bills have double because of it!

To control instituted government, you have to be where the governing is done.  Below is a link to the upcoming meetings of governing bodies in Cape Girardeau County over the next month

CCTP – TTTT – 20140218- Takeaway Activism – Calendar

The Purpose Of Government

By Janet Boston

The purpose of government is to keep order, protect private property and provide access to services across the whole of a county or city like education, transport, planning, fire and public safety, social care, libraries, waste management and trading standards.

Government representatives propose many wonderful options for “new stuff” to their constituents in the form of increased taxes.   Of course, who would not want a child to be educated, not have lunch, not to have a Water Park for tourism, not have an Osage Community Centre for events, not have a new Federal Building, courthouse, police / fire station, school, golf course, doggie park, bike trail, public transportation, Phase I & Phase II (911) to track phone locations of citizens, cameras on stoplights or a garden at the entrance to Cape Girardeau exit, etc?

These may be noble causes / projects and no one wants their town to be unattractive or underserved.  Most of the items listed above involve the expense of building, employees, utilities, insurance, maintenance, payroll, health insurance, possible retirements — all expensed to the taxpayer.

Cape Girardeau and Jackson’s populations have increased which increases tax revenues on many levels annually.  Tax revenues generated by retail sales, restaurant receipts, personal property, home purchases / sales, income tax, utilities, gasoline, food, cell phone, water, and sewer have continued to grow to support Cape Girardeau county’s cities.

Thomas Jefferson  stated, “Would it not be better to simplify the system of taxation rather than to spread it over such a variety of subjects and pass through so many new hands.”

The contra side to the issue is, what is the necessary functions the taxpayer to support?  Should we build a golf course, doggie park, a Federal Building, new school?  Should we create more government programs, Common Core, Kids First, Head Start, NPR, Planned Parenthood, NSA, Homeland Security?  Or should we pave our roads, be prepared with salt for our roads for citizens during inclement weather, update the fire house or build a new police station/jail to protect our communities and create a business environments for more jobs?

Is it really necessary to create a CID board to decide what the restaurant tax revenues should be appropriated? Or should these funds be appropriated to fund a new / refurbished fire house or new police station / jail?  Today, Cape Girardeau taxes provide police, trash hauling etc. for the downtown area.  Why are additional funds required for the same services?

The Casino brings in $2 Million dollars a year.  Cape Girardeau has one of the highest sales taxes in Missouri.  Shouldn’t these dollars be appropriated to fund some of the impending projects instead of raising taxes?  Could we pre-plan projects with existing tax surpluses / projected taxes in the next fiscal year?  Could some of the services now being provided by the City / County be provided by a contract employer reducing costs of benefits and retirements payable by taxpayer dollars?  Instead of being satisfied the citizens supported and paid for a project the Cape administration proposed to expend their tax dollars, the administration gets frantic when the tax is set to sunset.

Thomas Jefferson stated,  “To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt …  I am for a government rigorously frugal and simple.”

Normally when projects have been proposed for a tax increase, the entire project expense is presented for the taxpayer to approve by their vote.  The dedicated tax revenue, when voter approved, is attached to purchases or levied against the taxpayers’ property.  The City and County may receive funding from other state or federal sources and/or grants in addition to the taxes to support some of these projects.  These additional dollars, if sourced, could lighten the local taxpayers’ project tax burden.  The surplus dollars could be used in the next fiscal year in lieu of government pursuing another tax increase.

If I were to conduct a family poll at home and ask who wants to eat out, who wants a new cell phone, who wants more video games, should we get HBO channels, do you want a new car?  Everyone would raise their hands.  Then if I asked them are you willing not to have air conditioning this summer or heat in this winter, take fewer showers, cut the clothing/shoe budget in order to pay for these wants, the attitude is much different and choices of wants verses needs brings reality to the table.  To live within your budget necessitates making the difficult choices and the prioritization of dollars.

This is what we are asking our leaders.  Make the tough and wise choices.  We want Cape Girardeau Missouri debt free.  We want local government to create an environment for businesses to provide good paying jobs.  We want government to work toward bringing people on subsidies to zero. We want equitable agreements between local government and businesses who receive reduced taxation benefits to have the stipulation that the tax benefit be repaid to the city / county if they leave before 15 years. This employment effort will provide the revenue needed to fund the necessities and amenities for Cape Girardeau, Missouri through many sources of tax revenues received from citizens work, investments and purchases.

To Alter Or To Abolish,Chapter 34

Legal Plunder

Written by Darrell Anderson.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It only can exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

Often attributed to Scottish historian Alexander Fraser Tytler

President Gerald Ford stated “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.”
