“Last week, we shocked the Washington Ruling Class again by rallying at local Congressional and Senate offices all across America, demanding that they kill President Obama’s rotten nuclear deal with Iran. And now, we MUST follow it up with an even BIGGER rally on Capitol Hill. Tea Party Patriots is committed to making this rally happen. We have already managed to raise some extra funds to our grassroots budget to make the arrangements. But we’re still far behind the budgeted $250,000 needed to get this done right. We need your help right away! Please, if at all possible, make an urgent generous contribution of $20, $30, $50, $100, or whatever you can afford to help us pay for these critical grassroots protests.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD – STOP THE KILLING!
“You likely have seen the recent Center for Medical Progress videos which sugges t that Planned Parenthood is murdering both unborn babies and born alive aborted babies in order to harvest their baby body parts for sale. We, the taxpayers, are funding this immoral, illegal and medically unethical practice with our tax money.
Action: Contact your Congressman. The Federal Gov’t needs funding again by end of September.
Message: Tell your Congressman that you want him to sign Rep. Rick Mulvaney’s letter to Speaker Boehner which states that the Representatives signing will not support any funding resolution – appropriations bill, CR, omnibus package, or other – that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood .
Representatives of Valley Forge Patriots and several other grassroots groups met with Congressman Meehan’s District Director last week and conveyed this message to the Congressman.
The Republican leadership must attach defunding Planned Parenthood to ‘must-pass’ legislation. Anything else is worthless theatrics .
Even if Obama shuts down the government over defunding Planned Parenthood, isn’t saving babies from death and dismemberment worth standing firm for??????

233 Bridge St. Phoenixville, Pa.
Oath Keepers, a national group with local chapters, will provide a speaker. We want to learn more about what they do, what their mission is, and get some insight into emergency preparation. You may have heard that Oath Keepers were in Ferguson during the recent turmoil to support the local police. We are waiting for confirmation regarding a speaker. Please stay tuned for more information.
VFP will also be doing another post card blitz to oppose the Iran Deal. We will provide post cards, stamps and talking points. The cards you write will be sent to key targets to lobby against the bad “Deal” where Iran gets billions from the U.S., dropped sanctions, unknown side deals and they get to keep their centrifuges. Even Chuck Schumer is against it.

THE HILLARY . . .
“. . .Clinton lovers are not sane. They are not rational. Hillary could give a press conference and explicitly call her supporters the dumbest people on the planet while Bill stood behind her throwing puppies and kittens into a wood-chipper, and she’d still have a base of support.” Derek Hunter
Stephen Dinan & S. A. Miller, Washington Times: “Classified data grows in Clinton emails”
“The Obama administration is increasingly finding classified information in former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails, declaring secret material in nearly 3 percent of the batch released late Monday night.
“That is up from just 1.7 percent of the emails in the previous releases and raises questions about whether the new set of emails is more troublesome or whether the administration is being more strict after repeated warnings by watchdogs that Mrs. Clinton’s messages contain matters that should not be made public.
“The latest release is already proving to be awkward for Mrs. Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
“This is a very big deal,” Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump said in a Twitter message.
“The latest batch still centers on Mrs. Clinton’s early years in office in 2009 and 2010, and details her communications with top personal aides and world leaders. Her political opponents are scouring the data to try to get more insight into her policy stances and actions while she was the top U.S. diplomat.
“More pointedly, all sides will be scrutinizing the redactions of classified email to try to gauge what types of secret information she was handling on her email server, which she kept at her home in New York, rather than relying on the secure state.gov system that officials said she should have been using to comply with open-records laws and to maintain security. . .”
Sean Davis, Federalist: “BREAKING: Hillary Intentionally Originated and Distributed Highly Classified Information”
Thx Ted! . . . Kitty’s cell mate?
“. . .under federal law, information is classified by nature, not by marking. As a result, federal classification authorities deemed that the information was classified the very second it originated, even if it was not marked as such until August 27, 2015. Also worthy of note is the fact that Hillary’s message is the only content in the entire document that is redacted and marked as classified. This means that she was not merely a helpless, passive recipient of classified national security information; she was the originator. And not only did she intentionally originate the classified information, she intentionally disseminated it via an unsecured, unsanctioned private e-mail server.
The e-mail was classified as ‘confidential.’ According to the 2009 Obama executive order, the ‘confidential’ classification level ‘shall be applied to information, the unauthorized disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause damage to the national security.’
“Hillary Clinton’s campaign team has repeatedly tried to dodge responsibility for her distribution of classified information by claiming the information was not marked at the time. However, the nature of Hillary’s secret, off-books private e-mail scheme made it impossible for government authorities to mark as classified any information that originated on Hillary’s private server, since they had no access to it. In fact, one of the newly released e-mails shows that the agency’s IT department had no knowledge of her private e-mail address and server scheme.
“In this May 2010 e-mail from Hillary Clinton, another large chunk of her message is redacted under the same 1.4(D) code and may not be declassified until 10 years have passed from the day Clinton sent the e-mail, rather than the date on which it was marked as classified. Once again, this declassification date shows that the information Clinton originated and disseminated was classified from the very beginning, even if it was not marked as such. . .”
David Martosko, UK Daily Mail: Speechwriters going 100 hours without sleep, emails about gefilte fish and ‘The Good Wife’ plus countless pages blacked out for security: Hillary’s 7,000 new email pages revealed – including 125 containing ‘classified’ information
“State Department published about 7,000 pages of emails from Hillary‘s private home-brew server after scouring them for classified material
“A total of 125 messages were added to the 64 that were classified retroactively earlier in the summer
“State Department’s own email help desk was in the dark about Hillary’s address; she gushed over a new iPad she would later deny using for email
“Once praised an aide for going 100 hours without sleep to finish a speech; asked another staffer when she could find ‘The Good Wife’ on television
“Clinton aides were reduced to using their own personal email addresses to communicate with her when messages failed to reach their official ‘state.gov’ accounts.

LEADS . . .
Salena Zito, TribLive: “Casey, Coons become 32nd, 33rd senators to back nuclear deal with Iran”
Casey . . . collecting chips to be traded for later favors? . . .
“President Obama on Tuesday secured key Democratic votes for his nuclear deal with Iran from U.S. senators in Pennsylvania and Delaware, bringing him within one vote of the 34 he needs to keep the Republican-led Congress from blocking the agreement.
Sen. Bob Casey of Scranton said six weeks of “intensive review” led to his decision to support the deal, which was reached in July by Iran and six world powers.
He called it “the best option available to us at this time.”
“Casey and Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware became the 32nd and 33rd senators — all Democrats and independents who vote with Democrats — to support the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which would lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for its pledge to dismantle parts of its nuclear program and consent to international inspections of some facilities.. .”
“. . . Congress will return Tuesday from its August recess and must vote on the deal by Sept. 17. Debate is likely to begin immediately on a Republican-sponsored “resolution of disapproval” to kill the deal. (emph added, jb)
“‘This deal would provide a massive present-day cash infusion to the Iranian terrorist machine, causing untold destruction and misery in the near term,’ Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of the Lehigh Valley wrote in a statement on his website. He was traveling and could not be reached, an aide said…”
Jim Geraghty, Morning Jolt: “Carly’s In”
Carly’s not only in the debate, she has other choices, including whether to be the GOP candidate for president or vice-president and which guys will be her partners . . .
“. . .Lets [sic!] give credit to CNN. They realized their criteria for a September debate was going to use a lot of polls conducted in July, and that simply didn’t make much sense. So they revised the rules.
‘In May, we announced criteria for our September 16th Republican debates at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. We said that we would use the average of approved national polls from July 16th through September 10th to determine the makeup of the debates. At the time, we expected there to be many more national polls following the first Republican debate, in August, than there appears there will be. In fact, in 2007 and 2011, there were 16 and 15 approved national polls in the comparable August-September time frame. This year, there have been only three such national polls released. We learned this week that there will likely be only two more polls by the deadline of September 10th.
‘In a world where we expected there to be at least 15 national polls, based on historic precedent, it appears there will be only five. As a result, we now believe we should adjust the criteria to ensure the next debate best reflects the most current state of the national race. In the event that any candidate is polling in the top 10 in an average of approved national polls released between August 7th and September 10th, we will add those candidates to our top tier debate, even if those candidates did not poll in the top 10 in an average of approved national polls between July 16th and September 10th. We have discussed these changes with the Republican National Committee and the Reagan Library and they are supportive.
“In short, barring some dramatic turn of events in those next few polls, Carly Fiorina will probably be up on that stage.
‘If the eligibility window closed today, CNN’s analysis of polls conducted from July 16 shows that Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, John Kasich and Chris Christie would qualify for the top-tier debate. With today’s change, Fiorina would also qualify for the top-tier debate.
“You may notice that’s . . . eleven participants.”
Jon Street, The Blaze: “Ted Cruz’s Harsh Words for Obama After Execution-Style Murder of Texas Deputy: ‘From the Top on Down’”
“Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is blaming President Barack Obama’s “harsh rhetoric” toward law enforcement for the execution-style murder of a sheriff’s deputy near Houston over the weekend.
The GOP presidential candidate, who is from Houston, made the comment during a campaign appearance in Milford, New Hampshire, on Monday after he was asked by reporters about the fatal shooting of Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth.
“‘Cops across this country are feeling the assault. They’re feeling the assault from the president — from the top on down — as we see, whether it’s in Ferguson or Baltimore. The response of senior officials, of the president, of the attorney general, is to vilify law enforcement,’ Cruz said, according to WFAA-TV.
Investors: “Shock Poll: 59% Back Trump on Deportation of Illegals”
:. . . The latest IBD/TIPP Poll asked 913 adults coast to coast if they “support or oppose mandatory deportation of illegal immigrants in the U.S.” Not surprisingly, 87% of Trump supporters back the proposal.
What’s surprising is that 59% of the overall public does as well. Mandatory deportation gets majority support in all age groups except 18-24, every income group, among both women and men, at every level of educational achievement, and in rural, urban and suburban regions.
More interesting still is the fact that 64% of independents and 55% of moderates support deportation.
“Even among Hispanics, the poll found 40% backed mandatory deportation — although the sample size is too small to make much of that number. . .”
Claire Galofaro, AP: “Federal judge orders Kentucky clerk and her staff to court”
“MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — A county clerk in Kentucky who invoked “God’s authority” Tuesday for defying the U.S. Supreme Court on gay marriage has been summoned by a federal judge to explain why she should not be fined or jailed for contempt.
“U.S. District Judge David Bunning moved swiftly after Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis insisted yet again Tuesday that her religious beliefs prevent her from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Davis turned several couples away and then retreated into her office, where her door and blinds were closed to the raucous scene outside.
“Davis then issued a statement refusing to resign or concede her position.
“‘To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience. It is not a light issue for me. It is a Heaven or Hell decision,’ her statement said. ‘I was elected by the people to serve as the County Clerk. I intend to continue to serve the people of Rowan County, but I cannot violate my conscience.’. . .”
Gordon Chang, National Interest: “2015: The Year China Goes Broke?”
“. . . China’s problems were a long time in the making, but they became evident this spring, when the main indexes measuring the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock markets peaked on June 12 and then fell precipitously. In early July, Beijing, in a series of announcements, unveiled its rescue program, which included the government buying of shares.
“The ill-conceived effort was largely abandoned, it appears. As a result, shares fell hard last Monday, now known in China as “Black Monday,” and the following two days. The Shanghai Composite, the most widely followed index of Chinese stocks, ended trading on last Wednesday down 43.3% from its June 12 peak.
“Chinese leaders, however, took markets by surprise on Thursday, when shares snapped their five-day losing streak. The Shanghai Composite was down 0.7% entering the last hour of trading of the afternoon session. Massive government purchases of large-cap stocks sent prices soaring in the final minutes, and the index closed up 5.3%.
“Sources told Bloomberg that Beijing’s buying was intended to prevent stocks from plunging during the run up to the September 3-4 holiday to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, what China has renamed the Chinese People’s War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression. . .”
END NOTES. . .
Robert Spencer, JihadWatch: “Scholars catch up to Spencer, realize ancient Qur’an challenges Islam’s origins”
““Fragments of the world’s oldest Koran, found in Birmingham last month, may predate the Prophet Muhammad and could even rewrite the early history of Islam, according to scholars.” That’s the lead paragraph of the story below, which is dated today. The implication is that the text existed before it became part of the Qur’an — which would completely demolish the Islamic claim that the Qur’an was delivered in perfect form through Gabriel from Allah to Muhammad, and wasn’t based on any source texts at all.
“On July 22, I wrote this about the same Qur’an manuscript: “So if this is a fragment of the Qur’an as it now stands…and yet it could date from as far back as 568, two years before Muhammad is supposed to have been born, it might not be a fragment of the Qur’an at all. It could instead be a portion of some source that later became part of the Qur’an…”
“On July 27, I wrote that “this could be a portion of a pre-Islamic source for the Qur’an.”
“Glad to see the academics catching up.”
Mark Levin Show (9/1/15)
“On Tuesday’s Mark Levin Show: It’s hard to remember all of the police shootings because there’s so many of them now. We’ve had four incidents in nine days of officers being gunned down while doing their regular duties. It’s time for President Obama to denounce the likes of Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, and the Black Lives Matter movement for spewing racist hatred and pouring fuel on the fire.
“Also, John Kerry is comparing climate change to World War II, saying there’s an urgent need for global cooperation similar to the 1930s. This is an international redistribution of rights, which is why Kerry and Obama are pushing a global initiative with the U.N. It’s not about reducing carbon pollution; it’s about reducing your lifestyle and well-being.
“Later, Mitch McConnell has already surrendered to Obama again, saying Planned Parenthood can’t be defunded because Obama has a pen. The Republican answer is always the same – we have to move along because we can’t change anything. If Obama always stands firm and gets what he wants, why can’t Congress? Finally, Mark is joined by Sen. Rand Paul to discuss Hillary Clinton’s email server and Planned Parenthood.”
