“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.

“I Call upon Every Believer, Every Constitutionalist, Every Lover of Liberty to Stand with Kim Davis” Ted Cruz
THE HILLARY . . .
Jonah Goldberg, NRO: “There’s a Whole Arsenal of Smoking Guns in the Clinton E-mail Scandal”
“Every time the State Department pulls out a new fistful of Hillary Clinton e-mails like Richard Dreyfuss yanking a license plate out of a shark’s belly in Jaws, someone declares that there’s ‘no smoking gun!’
“I’ve written before about how shouting ‘There’s no smoking gun!’ is a non-denial denial. Ask a cop. When a murder suspect immediately exclaims, ‘You have no indisputable evidence I murdered my boss!’ instead of, ‘I didn’t do it!’ it’s a good sign that the suspect thinks he covered his tracks, not that he’s innocent.
“Fellas, if your wife asks if you’re having an affair, respond by saying, ‘You have no proof!’ See if she takes that for a denial.
“But here’s the thing. There is a smoking gun. In fact, there’s a whole smoking arsenal. The problem is that the standards for what counts as a smoking gun keep changing.
“Nearly everything Clinton has said in her defense regarding her secret server has been a lie. Among the minor lies: her claim that she set up the server so she could use a single device. (She had two.) Her claim that the State Department was saving her e-mails to staff. (It wasn’t until 2010.) Her claim that she erased tens of thousands of e-mails because they included, among other things, her e-mail correspondence with her husband. (Bill Clinton doesn’t use e-mail.)
“Hillary Clinton said she never solicited e-mail from her lugubrious political hatchet man, Sidney Blumenthal. The latest e-mails show that she was in near-constant contact with him, encouraging him to keep his various reports coming. Blumenthal was barred from getting a job at the White House, so Clinton set him up at her charity–cum–super PAC, the Clinton Foundation. The more important lie: She said she never received or sent classified information. ‘I did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail. There is no classified material.’. . .” http://www.nationalreview.com/article/423536/hillary-clinton-server-denials-are-pathetic-joke-jonah-goldberg
Victor Davis Hanson, NRO: “Hillary’s Campaign Has Already Begun to Derail”
“. . .The lurid revelations about the Clinton Foundation proved that it was not so much a charity as a huge laundering operation. Quid pro quo donations from the global rich and powerful fueled the Clintons’ jet-setting networking. In between political campaigns, the foundation provided sinecures for out-of-work Clinton politicos. This is hardly proof of Hillary’s grass-roots progressivism.
“Then came Clinton’s e-mail fiasco. No one knows how the current investigation of her alleged misuse of e-mail accounts, servers, and classified information will end up. But most people accept that it was an unnecessary and self-induced scandal, brought on both by her paranoia and habitual expectation of being exempt from the law.
“ABC News just disclosed that ex-president Bill Clinton sought huge speaking fees from foreign governments (well over a half-million dollars per talk), while Hillary was secretary of state. Unfortunately, some of his proposed speaking deals involved odious regimes like those of Congo and North Korea. This year, Hillary herself routinely charged universities $200,000 to $300,000 for brief talks — after decrying the cash-strapped status of indebted students. What will the Clintons not do to make money? “All these imbroglios raise more issues. Was Senator Barack Obama, largely a political unknown at the time, really all that unstoppable in 2008? Or did Hillary simply blow a 30-point lead in the polls because then as now she proved a lousy candidate?
“Can’t Hillary Clinton turn voters’ attention to her recent stewardship of American foreign policy?
“Most of what happened on her watch as secretary of state is better forgotten: the destruction of a self-reliant Iraq, the rise of the Islamic State, chaos in Libya, failed reset with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, disaster in Benghazi, the alienation of Israel and moderate Arab nations, and Iran’s ascendant. . .” http://www.nationalreview.com/article/423462/hillary-clinton-scandal-campaign

Sean Davis, The Federalist: “Kim Davis Uproar Shows That Breaking The Law Is Only Okay When Progressives Do It”
“. . . Take, for example, Democrat Gavin Newsom, who is currently the California lieutenant governor. Back in 2004, when gay marriage was banned under California state law, Newsom openly defied the law and used his power as the mayor of San Francisco to force taxpayer-funded government clerks to issue gay marriage licenses:
“Newsom unleashed a political and legal tempest February 12 when he ordered the city clerk to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. “Nearly 3,200 same-sex couples have gotten licenses in a nine-day frenzy that included thousands of family, friends and soon-to-be betrothed couples ringing City Hall, sometimes for days.
“Just like Kim Davis, who is an elected Democrat, Newsom justified his lawlessness by citing his own conscience and beliefs about right and wrong rather than deferring to the actual laws of his state.
“If you look for evidence of gay rights advocates chastising Newsom for his blatant lawlessness, you won’t find it. Because it doesn’t exist. You similarly won’t find any evidence of these principled law enforcement purists chastising California state officials for refusing to enforce or defend the Prop 8 ballot initiative in California, which was passed overwhelmingly by California voters.
“And don’t you dare look for evidence of high-minded progressives demanding prison sentences for the Washington, D.C. bureaucrats who openly defied federal court orders to issue concealed carry permits in the nation’s capital. Nope. Instead of enforcing the law as handed down in multiple Supreme Court cases, D.C. officials kept manufacturing new reasons to justify their refusal to comply with federal gun laws.
“Don’t even get me started on federal laws regarding drug possession. You won’t find progressives calling for the prosecution of scores of Colorado officials in open defiance of federal drug bans, or calling for the heads of federal officials who refuse to enforce federal drug laws in Colorado. No, those federal laws are icky. Sure, they’re indisputably the law of the land. And sure, officials have a duty to equally apply and enforce standing law, but icky laws are different. Only non-icky laws need to be enforced.
“Perhaps natural marriage advocates should abandon their religious liberty arguments and instead declare whole cities to be marriage sanctuaries. That strategy has worked splendidly for open borders advocates. Who cares what the federal law requires when it comes to illegal immigration? Those laws restricting citizenship rights to citizens are icky, so they don’t need to be enforced. Sanctuary cities are great, so long as they provide sanctuary from icky laws of which progressives disapprove.
“Oh, and those laws regarding the proper handling of classified national security information? Meh. Yeah, those are icky, too. So lay off Hillary Clinton, you dirty law truther. Who cares if she ignored clear law and policy by setting up an unsecured, unsanctioned e-mail server which was then used to house and distribute classified information? Who cares if President Barack Obama himself signed the executive order mandating the protection of national security information, the unauthorized release of which could damage American safety and security? Who cares if she intentionally sent classified information to people outside the government who were never cleared to receive it? Progressives think that law is icky, too, so you’ll have to excuse them from not caring about Hillary’s blatant violation of it (laws regarding the handling of classified information are totally not icky, though, when applied to Republicans like David Petraeus or Scooter Libby).
“When you really think about it, though, this whole kerfuffle is obviously the fault of Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refuses to issue gay marriage licenses. She should’ve known better. She should’ve thought this whole thing through.
“If Kim Davis really wanted to avoid the ire and attention of progressives and their media allies, she should’ve just videotaped herself killing babies and then selling their organs. “Then she could operate with total impunity.”

Mike Allen, Politico: “EXCLUSIVE: Trump will sign GOP loyalty pledge”
“The Donald made the stunning decision to avoid complications in getting listed on primary ballots.
“A close associate tells POLITICO that Donald Trump plans to sign a loyalty pledge Thursday that would bind him to endorse the Republican nominee, and would preclude a third-party run. Trump made the stunning decision, which he has long resisted, to avoid complications in getting listed on primary ballots, and to take away an attack line in the next debate, the associate said.
“Trump, who has led the GOP field in poll after poll, has long viewed the threat of a third-party candidacy as priceless leverage – and even used that word when he refused to take such a pledge in the first debate, on Aug. 6.
So his decision to give it up is a sign that he increasingly wants to show his campaign is real and not a stunt. The colorful magnate is also trying to make that point by adding staff in key states, issuing position papers, and pursuing access to primary ballots throughout the country. . .” http://www.politico.com/story/2015/09/trump-will-sign-gop-loyalty-pledge-213302
Jerusalem Post: “Donald Trump: Nuclear deal calls for US to defend Iran against Israeli attack”
“. . . In a telephone interview with CNN Tuesday, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump said that under the auspices of the Iran nuclear agreement, if Israel were to attack the Islamic Republic, the United States would have to come to the Tehran’s aid. “Trump has vocally opposed the deal since announcing his run for president, saying that the United States “should have doubled up the sanctions for another couple of months” and that the 24-day notice Iran receives before sites can be inspected is unacceptable. “But Trump added an unconventional twist to the opposition argument, suggesting that under the terms of the deal the United States was required to fight alongside Iran if Israel were to attack. “‘You know, there is something in the Iran deal that people I don’t think really understand or know about,’ the real estate mogul said. ‘And nobody is ever to explain it that if somebody attacks Iran, we have to come to their defense.’ “Trump added, ‘And I’m saying this – that includes Israel? And most people say, yes. So, if Israel attacks Iran according to that deal, I believe… that we have to fight with Iran against Israel.’ “On Wednesday, the Obama administration secured the support of 34 senators for its landmark nuclear agreement with Iran, ensuring its safe passage through a vote scheduled in Congress this month. . .” http://www.jpost.com/landedpages/printarticle.aspx?id=415079
Josh Gerstein, Politico: “Judge eager to re-enter NSA surveillance fight”
“Warning that the constitutional rights of tens of millions of Americans are being violated, a federal judge said Wednesday that he’s eager to expedite a lawsuit seeking to shut down the National Security Agency’s controversial program to collect data on large volumes of U.S. telephone calls.
“During an hourlong hearing in U.S. District Court in Washington, Judge Richard Leon repeatedly urged the conservative lawyer who brought the suit to take steps to allow the case to move forward quickly by asking a federal appeals court to formally relinquish control over an appeal in the case.
“Leon noted that the so-called bulk collection program is set to shut down on November 29 as part of a transition to a new system where queries will be sent to telephone companies rather than to a central database stored at the NSA.
“‘The clock is running and there isn’t much time between now and November 29,’ Leon told conservative gadfly Larry Klayman. ‘This court believes there are millions and millions of Americans whose constitutional rights have been and are being violated, but the window…for action is very small….It’s time to move.’ . . .”
Daniel Henninger, WSJ: “The Biden-Obama Axis”
“The Obama network wants control of the party they won from the Clintons.
“Here’s the short reason for the boomlet to get Joe Biden into the race: Hillary’s just not fun anymore.
“Set aside whether she ever was. Let’s divide humanity into two groups: normal people and politicians. What makes the political class flutter about Joe Biden is a little different than what excites the rest of us.
“On Labor Day weekend, more than 99% of the American population will unwind with family and friends, picnics, the beach and baseball. Not the politicians. Every elected politician in America, from Podunk town mayors to super PAC-backed candidates for the presidency will be pressing flesh with strangers. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is going to spend Friday afternoon with his new best friends in Contoocook, N.H.
“Why do they do it? Because they love it. Politicking is the only thing they do. And standing nearby in politicking’s upper divisions this weekend will be aides, abandoning normal life for the same reason. They love it.
“Where in this great political parade is Joe Biden? Vice President Biden has become the “Where’s Waldo?” of U.S. politics. Is he in the picture or isn’t he?
“The case for Joe Biden disembarking permanently from the campaign train is strong. He’s not sure he has “the emotional fuel” for another presidential run, and no one can gainsay that for a father who has lost a son. Mr. Biden’s legacy is in decent shape; it wouldn’t be written that he went 0 for 3 chasing the presidency. Some 45 years after winning his first election to the county council of New Castle, Del., the Scranton Scrapper has earned a return to normal life.
“Except . . . he’s a politician, and the Game beckons. . .”
Anjali Shastry, Washington Times: “More than 300,000 dead vets still on VA’s active health care enrollment list”
“More than 300,000 dead veterans are still listed in VA computers as actively trying to sign up for health care — part of a massive 860,000 benefit application backlog that hasn’t been cleared up, according to an audit Wednesday that portrayed a department struggling with the basics of tracking benefits.
“Veterans Affairs workers appear to have deleted another 10,000 benefit applications without ever processing them, and 13 percent on the rolls have been awaiting a decision for more than five years, the department’s inspector general said. . .”

Sy Snyder, Politics PA: 9/4 Ups & Downs
“Drafts, petitions and even more emails. See who made this week’s list!
“Joe Biden. Talk about great timing. Just as we learned that our readers believe that the Vice President will run for President, it was announced that Biden is coming to Pittsburgh for Labor Day. We also found out that AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka will be joining him on the capstone to what could be a test run for a presidential campaign. Finally, departing PA Democratic Chairman Jim Burn publicly supported the “Draft Biden” movement. Should the VP decide to take the leap, the Keystone State’s third Senator could receive a grand welcome.
“Chaka Fattah. If you’re not sick of hearing about Hillary Clinton’s emails, or Kathleen Kane’s emails, then get ready for Chaka Fattah’s emails! The Congressman, who is currently under indictment on twenty-nine counts, lost a case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd District to protect his emails from investigators. Now the feds are going through all of Rep. Fattah’s communications and you have to imagine there are plenty he doesn’t want them to find.
“Kathleen Kane. After months and months of being pilloried, the release of the graphic pornographic emails has led to a passionate defense of the Attorney General from her remaining fans. Her supporters started a Change.org petition for Kane that has accumulated over 1,400 signatures. Additionally, now her enemies Frank Fina and Marc Costanzo are on the hot seat. The AG may have reached the point where she’s worried less about her own critics than she is taking down Fina & Co.
“James Short Jr. Short served as Director of Marketing and Merchandising for the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board from 2002 to 2013. According to the U.S. attorney’s office, it was quite a lucrative gig. This week Short was charged with taking bribes and kickbacks from distillers. Prosecutors are also alleging that he accepted a free Florida vacation from another distilling client. Given the fact that Short was reprimanded by the State Ethics Commission last year, though, we probably shouldn’t be surprised.
“John Dougherty. Dougherty, frequently referred to as “Johnny Doc”, is perhaps the most respected and feared man in Philadelphia politics. The Business Manager of IBEW 98, his support of Jim Kenney was critical to the ex-Councilman’s victory in the Democratic primary for Philly Mayor. Now Dougherty’s influence is growing as he takes over the Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council from his mentor Pat Gillespie. At a time when labor’s power is ebbing nationwide, Johnny Doc has become a power broker in the City of Brotherly Love.”

Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge: “The 2030 Agenda: This Month the UN Launches a Blueprint for a New World Order with the Help of the Pope”
Thx Jeff! . . . BO’s next job?????? Maybe he and Val will take Bobby with them . . .
“Did you know that the UN is planning to launch a “new universal agenda” for humanity in September 2015? That phrase does not come from me – it is actually right in the very first paragraph of the official document that every UN member nation will formally approve at a conference later this month. The entire planet is going to be committing to work toward 17 sustainable development goals and 169 specific sustainable development targets, and yet there has been almost a total media blackout about this here in the United States.
“The UN document promises that this plan will “transform our world for the better by 2030“, and yet very few Americans have even heard of the 2030 Agenda at this point. Instead, most of us seem to be totally obsessed with the latest celebrity gossip or the latest nasty insults that our puppet politicians have been throwing around at one another. It absolutely amazes me that more people cannot understand that Agenda 2030 is a really, really big deal. When will people finally start waking up?
“As I discussed in a previous article, the 2030 Agenda is taking the principles and goals laid out in Agenda 21 to an entirely new level. Agenda 21 was primarily focused on the environment, but the 2030 Agenda addresses virtually all areas of human activity. It truly is a blueprint for global governance.
“And later this month, nearly every nation on the entire planet is going to be signing up for this new agenda. The general population of the planet is going to be told that this agenda is “voluntary” and that it is all about “ending poverty” and “fighting climate change”, but that is not the full story. Unfortunately, there is so much positive spin around this plan that most people will not be able to see through it. . .”
Mark Levin Show (9/4/15)
“On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show: It’s the courts that are out of control, abusing their power, and nullifying the rule of law, not Kim Davis, the KY county clerk jailed for not issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The 1st Amendment exists to protect individuals and their religious liberty from the Federal Government, which includes district courts. This is the problem we have when 9 lawyers dress in robes who impose their will on America. Sen Ted Cruz calls in and declares that he stands with Kim Davis. When President Obama resigns after years of ignoring our immigration laws then we can talk about Kim Davis.
“Also, you can’t have assimilation if you’re pressing 1 for English and 2 for Spanish on a phone call. Jeb Bush bashing Donald Trump in Spanish to a Latino audience shouldn’t be praised; he’s pandering to the ethnic community. There’s no way a country can exist without tension while it promotes multiple cultures with no assimilation.
“Later, it’s time for the Senate and House of Representatives to reverse course and treat President Obama’s Iran deal as a treaty. Republicans in Washington are every bit as guilty as Obama for not only tolerating his lawlessness, but by participating in it. The game is now fixed because of the Senate surrendering treaty powers to Obama.”
