Will Grassroots Leaders Arise?

Occasionally something is so clear to me that I assume others understand. Then I find out that is not true. So to that end this seems very necessary to go over and may be old information to some. Did you know that there are those among us who are actually empowering those who would destroy us with time, talent, and treasure? Yes folks, we are complaining about the enemy and the enemy is in our midst. If we refuse to recognize the problem, how will we deal with the problem?

Is it easy? NO!

“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:8

It means we must insist on a standard that other groups do not have. It means that we must challenge those among us not doing things properly. It means that we must examine our own hearts and repent daily and ask forgiveness of God and our brothers and sisters when we err. It means that we stand ready to rescue the one sheep who is being abused by the tyrant even when it means that others will look down on us for doing so. It means answering to the Lord God Almighty above men and the desires of men (and women too - this writer uses masculine for mankind with no qualms to PC!)

The purpose of this piece is to announce a new site that is born out of a need to protect the Grassroots. It will succeed only if grassroots people choose to engage and support and promote. It was worth doing whether that occurs or not because you will have been given a choice. You will know which choice you made and why.

TeapartyGrassroots.com is now online. At this incredible site you can find an event or list an event. The event will be published to a composite page and a master teaparty google calendar. We have also opened a page and a calendar for LibertyRider - Michael Maresco and his cross country ride with day one now complete and Michael safely in Trenton NJ. This website and calendar process has huge implications for our movement and the protection thereof if you will make it yours. If you continue to empower the national groups sapping your strength - that will be your choice because at least now you have an option. [Editor's note: more sections to this project are opening daily including now: all events, teaparties, other rallies and protests, liberty rider days, conventions and conferences, media events, and volunteer opportunities.]

Please try it out and take your name off of the national sites who are taking credit for your efforts and trying to collect money from your grassroots constituents to do things that you may or may not agree with at all! I was recently at a meeting where a field director from a national group took personal credit for all the teaparties in Oklahoma. I personally knew that wasn’t true so do you think I believed the other things he claimed credit for? I am not saying these national groups are all bad - just must be reined in and monitored closely by real people who actually want bailouts stopped, the constitution followed, etc. etc.

I pray you will ponder these matters and understand the importance of proper action. Please properly empower the real servant leaders among you and rein in those who are plundering your efforts and sapping your energy to other ends. Please let us know how you plan to help by commenting on this piece here and sharing it with your networks if you are in agreement.

For Life and Liberty,
Sandra Crosnoe for

The biggest tax is yet to come.
People really need to learn about this:
The biggest tax increase coming down the pike is “Cap and Trade,” [It was passed out of committee before Memorial Day.] YET only a quarter of voters even know what that is.
Pres. Obama has said that if his cap and trade program is passed, then “electricity rates will skyrocket.” [His words; direct quote.]
But this is his Achilles heel because the facts are against him. But will the facts ever see the light of day? Will the American taxpayer be educated about this? WHO will do it before our non-representative ‘reps’ cram this down our throats????
The major media have only reported the propaganda about ‘global warming.’ Yet there have been significant events and scientists trying to get out the information that CO2 does NOT drive global warming.
This means that the carbon tax is not only exorbitant, BUT it is a TAX with NO PURPOSE. It is attacking a non-existent, fabricated problem!
SOMEBODY needs to get the news out.
Key resources that people need:
This video includes scientists that WERE on the IPCC

The Senate Minority Report:

Heartland Institute has sponsored three international conferences on climate change with scientists from Harvard, MIT, and others, including Apollo 17 Astronaut Harrison Schmidt, Ph.D. and the President of the EU who has a Ph.D. in economics.
Yet the network news completely ignored these.

Conference on Climate Change can be found here:

Some key quotes from scientists:
Dr. John R. Christy, Professor of Atmospheric Science and Director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama-Huntsville: [comments from debate on 11 Feb., 2009]: He was a lead author on the IPCC report.
--Our ignorance about the climate system is enormous, and policy makers need to know that. This is an extremely complex system, and thinking we can control it is hubris. [THIS is the most important fact of the whole issue yet Congress ignores it and is prepared to tax us to death on it.]
--The greatest climate change for the world is not physical change but impact on economy from climate change policies.
--Hansen’s 1988 hypothesis of future CO2 and temperature was badly wrong. Another test: climate models uniformly say greenhouse signal will be warming in tropical troposphere; but empirical observations show hypothesis false. [Hansen is Obama’s Science Advisor.]

"A few years ago if you would ask me [what is driving climate change] I would tell you it is co2. Why? Because just like everyone else in the public, I listen to what the media had to say."--Prof. Nir Shaviv, Institute of Physics
Reid Bryson considers global warming a bunch of hooey.
The UW-Madison professor emeritus, who stands against the scientific consensus on this issue, is referred to as a global warming skeptic. But he is not skeptical that global warming exists, he is just doubtful that humans are the cause of it.
There is no question the earth has been warming. It is coming out of the “Little Ice Age,” he said in an interview.
“However, there is no credible evidence that it is due to mankind and carbon dioxide. We’ve been coming out of a Little Ice Age for 300 years. We have not been making very much carbon dioxide for 300 years. It’s been warming up for a long time,” Bryson said.
