Larry Grathwohl, a Cincinnati native, friend to the conservative political movements, a speaker at several NKY Tea events and the only person to infiltrate the Weather Underground for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), has passed away. Mr. Grathwohl worked hard to educate us on the history of the 1960's radical movement and how today it is alive and well within the Obama administration. Mr. Grathwohl exposed Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn and the key roles they played in the Weather Underground. These same individuals and groups were instrumental to the assent of Obama. The Breitbart tribute to Mr. Grathwohl is a sobering reminder that we must not forget history. His book, Bringing Down America: An FBI Informer with the Weatherman, was recently re-released and is available for purchase. The book provides insight into the thinking and the processes being used, as the title says, to Bring Down America.
Larry, thank you for your tireless service, you will be missed.

On Monday of this week, thousands of Americans, organized by the Black American Leadership Alliance, marched in suffering heat up Pennsylvania Avenue to the U.S. Capitol. For those who were not able to make the trip watch this fantastic 2-1/2 minute video with the highlights of Monday's march.
All of the speeches are available from the link above. Watch Kentuckian Luis Pozzolo as he lights up the crowd with, "NO AMNESTY, NO LEGALIZATION, NO NORMALIZATION. THERE IS NOT JUSTICE OR HONOR IN AMNESTY." Senator Ted Cruz and Colonel Allen West spoke alongside Luis to ask Congress, in the words of Reverend O'Neil Dozier to stop the immigration bill and "prevent Congress from infringing on American citizens right to the pursuit of happiness and prosperity in the hopes of advancing their political careers."
We encourage our Kentucky Senators and Representatives to support the Black American Leadership Alliance in their goal and our goal of not passing a new 1,100 page immigration bill. We have enough laws and the existing laws need to be enforced. For those of you who want to be fully engaged in the immigration issue join NumbersUSA. They have over 2 million members. It is one of the most effective immigration web site you will find. Join by going to the web site: www.NumbersUSA.com
Senator Lindsay Graham and Senator John McCain are not for limited government when they support amnesty and S. 744. This article at examiner.com calls Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), "either one of the dumbest men to serve in the U.S. Senate, or just one of the most corrupt." He is probably both. Wake up America! Wake up Senator Paul! Wake up Senator McConnell!
The so called "gang of eight" immigration bill (S 744) is just the latest fraud, perpetrated on the American people via a 1,000+ page "comprehensive" bill that most senators (you guessed it) have not read. The process was poisoned by leadership's commitment to "agreed upon preconditions." It shut down serious debate on important amendments. (see letter) We need to secure the border first, enforce existing law, then take a measured approach to fixing our immigration system. There is no reason to rush and make a huge mistake in the midst of a political frenzy. Please read this letter written by four U.S. Senators (Cruz, Grassley, Lee, Sessions) revealing just how flawed the proposed legislation is, and how dishonest the committee process has been.
Please pass the senators' letter on to as many folks as you can! You've heard this bill emphasizes border security first. Not true. You've heard newly legalized illegals will be required to learn English. False. The path the Senate is on would be a disaster both for the rule of law and for our fragile economy. Tell the Senate: DO NOT pass this flawed bill. Tell the House: DO NOT pass ANY bill at this time because the conference process (reconciling House and Senate bills) will turn even a good House bill back into the bad Senate bill. The process has been rigged by a small group of so called progressives from both parties who believe in open borders and big government collectivism. We need to STOP, SECURE the BORDER, and engage the American people while taking smaller incremental steps to change our immigration law. This will allow full transparency so everyone can see our options and see exactly what we're doing.
Start your calls now, but we will need to continue them over the next few weeks. Make sure to read the letter first!

As the scandals of the Obama administration unfold President Regan's statement that "freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction" keeps ringing in my ears. The founders of our country realized the dangers of a democracy and established a republic with many checks and balances. Obama and the progressive do-gooders have lulled us to sleep and now the police state is closing in upon us. The heavy hand of government is now in our homes recording our phone conversations, tracking our every mouse click and following our emails. Those that think the constitution is an outdated document and the principles are outdated must reconsider as it was Benjamin Franklin that said, "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." Take some time to reflect on the previous two quotes and then read this article where Obama says, "You can't have 100 percent security and also then have 100 percent privacy and zero inconvenience."
Liberty is protected by our constitution. Obama and the progressives have a mission to destroy the constitution. Those that think they are defending liberty by supporting legislation such as the Patriot Act are actually strengthening the hand of Obama and the progressives. Their intentions are good but the results will be disastrous. They are playing into the hands of evil.
The contrast between the Obama progressives and Senator Rand Paul and the liberty movement is clear. In this article, the Obama machine is unleashing the full force of the government to file criminal charges on the individuals that exposed the government spying operation that violates the constitution. Obama is using the police state to strengthen his position and power. Contrast this with Senator Rand Paul who is taking action to protect the Constitution and the Fourth Amendment as he believes it is as relevant today as it was when it was adopted on December 15, 1791.
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
This one sentence is what stands between liberty and tyranny. The Obama administration and the progressives are destroying our country one sentence at a time. When Thomas Jefferson says "Let no more be said about the confidence of men, but bind them down from mischief with the chains of the Constitution" he is warning us about the consequences of destroying or removing the chains of the constitution. Hitler had the chains of his constitution removed with the Enabling Act in 1933. We not only need to pray but we need to act to ensure that Obama's chains are not removed under the guise of the Patriot Act.
