There will be a rally tomorrow, Wednesday, June 18th, in Raleigh, NC.

From Troy’s blog:


Join Immigration Enforcement Groups for Historic Rally in Raleigh on June 18

A diverse group of concerned citizens who represent the 80% of North Carolinians, which want the NC Legislature to take action to curtail illegal immigration in 2008, will gather for a rally and citizens lobby day in Raleigh on June 18, 2008

The rally will be from 11am-1pm on the Bicentennial Mall, which is across Jones St. from the main entrance of the NC Legislature. Supporters are also encouraged to join us, on the 1st floor inside the legislative building from 8am-5pm, to distribute materials and lobby NC lawmakers against HB 2717 that would allow illegal aliens in NC Colleges, while supporting measures to protect American jobs, tax resources, and lives threatened by illegal immigration.

Commentary

I am excited that others in North Carolina are waking up to the possibilities of covering events live. We can bypass the Legacy Media outlets of TV, Radio, and Newsprint and go directly to the people. I will be embedding the audio player on my blog, and if you have a blog of your own, I suggest that you domit as well to maximize the coverage and reporting of this event.

Action Alert—Laura Ingraham Taken Off Air

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 13, 2008

From my inbox:

Popular radio talk show host Laura Ingraham has been taken off the air with no explanation.

Laura’s show is one of the top five most popular talk radio shows in the nation. Laura is a solid conservative voice on the air.

She is gone with no explanation. All anyone knows is that it is not her choice.

If radio networks can yank a conservative voice who is that popular, they can do it to Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity or anyone else.

Liberals are again agitating to shut down conservative talk radio. They have been pushing “diversity” regulations through the FCC to do just that. Taking out Laura Ingraham is just a step along the way toward shutting down conservative talk radio totally.

Here is a station guide for Laura Ingraham. Please call your local affiliate and tell the station you want Laura Ingraham back on the Laura Ingraham show.

You can stop liberals from shutting down talk radio by standing up for Laura Ingraham.

Sincerely yours,

Rush Limbaugh to Headline Historic Pro-Troop Effort

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 30, 2008

Rush Limbaugh made headlines in 2005 when he traveled to Afghanistan to meet with U.S. troops serving in the war on terror. As he reported to his huge listening audience, he witnessed first-hand the “awe-inspiring” jobs our troops were doing there.

Now Rush has signed on to help the pro-troop organization, Move America Forward to send the largest single shipment of care packages to U.S. troops in history. The drive will culminate in a June 26th 8-hour web-a-thon called “From the Frontlines” that will feature video reports from our troops serving in Iraq & Afghanistan – and Rush has agreed to participate in the program that will be hosted by Move America Forward Chairman, Melanie Morgan, and blogger extraordinare, Michelle Malkin.

More Information: Move America Forward
Live Stream Channel: From the Frontline

Choose Your Care Package Here

I will be hosting a live-stream of this event on this blog, so stand-by for more information as the time nears.

Action Alert: Call The Blue Dogs!

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 13, 2008

The following is an action alert from Redstate:

The “Blue Dog” Democrats are the conservative Democrats in the House of Representatives. Twenty-one of the Blue Dogs signed a letter to Nancy Pelosi on January 28th urging her to move the bipartisan FISA legislation forward.

The legislation would allow the government to eavesdrop on phone calls made outside this country to other people outside this country, but whose calls are routed through this country (the majority of international phone calls are routed through the U.S.).

The Blue Dogs said the FISA legislation should include targeted immunity for phone carriers who help the government stop terrorists.

While the Blue Dogs were willing to sign the letter to Nancy Pelosi, they have been unwilling to actually sign a discharge petition, which would bring this matter to the floor of the House without Nancy Pelosi’s consent.

Below are the names and phone numbers of the Blue Dogs who talk a good game, but fail to act. Please call them and urge them to sign the discharge petition on H.R. 5440.

Anarchists Call for Direct Action Against War

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 17, 2008

I found this while perusing the lefty and anarchist website, Infoshop:

It is long since time to be blunt. The anti-war movement is a corpse, yet the majority is more and more against the war. This says something both about the effectiveness of actions which are allowed and the contempt for the value of the individual within the mass of organizations. But honestly, do we really expect means allowed by those who depend on war, create war, whose existence is war bubbling below the surface to allow an end to what their existence necessitates by means they favor? Only by means that value the individual, strong passionate connections and affinity can we pose an alternative worth creating for – worth destroying for.

Thus, we are calling on all of you to let loose your rage. We are calling on you to realize your fantasies and to make them live. On the anniversary of the war, the night of March 20th, meet with your loved ones and put plans into action. Let it be a night of decentralized direct action against war and empire. Let’s ensure that power feels our joy as wrath. Allow them not a moments rest.

Commentary

So, if you work in, or near recruiting centers, military facilities, or just have Bush stickers or “Support The Troops” decals on your vehicles…keep an eye out, and your personal weapon ready to go.

The moonbats just can’t handle living in a Republic where the adults make the decisions. And they will only become more desperate as they realize they will not get what they want, and that we are in Iraq to stay, and will be going into other countries as needed. These punks need to grow up, get a job, or get fixed so their genetic material stays out of the gene pool. They might also consider joining the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, and leave first.

Paxten Mitchell and the City of Asheville

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 17, 2008

ASHEVILLE– Offers of help for little Paxten Mitchell began coming in early Friday morning.

Paxten, 3, has a rare form of leukemia, and payment for the unusual treatment he is receiving at Mission Hospitals has been denied by the company that administers the city of Asheville’s insurance plan. His father, Robert Mitchell, is a firefighter with the city.

Jessica Miller, of Alexander, has set up jars for donations on the counters of several local stores, hoping to help the family with bills.

“I have a little boy 13 months old, and he’s healthy, thank God,” Miller said, “I just cannot imagine hearing my child has leukemia and then finding out the insurance company won’t cover his treatment.”

Hat Tip: Carolina Stompers

What you can do to help this child, visit his online journal and make a donation to Caringbridge after you read about him and his struggle. There are also photos to look at as well.

I will be contacting the Credit Union tomorrow to see if there is a procedure for online donations…bookmark this post and return for an update.

Until then, you may send checks to:

Robert Mitchell
c/o Paxten Mitchell Fund
Premier Federal Credit Union
148 Charlotte Street
Asheville, NC 28801
or inquire further at 828-252-2346

You might want to contact the people who refused insurance coverage, Primary Physician Care.

The Carolina Stompers have another angle on this story:

Apparently there was a guy named John Miall who did a great job as the Risk Manager for the City of Asheville. He supposedly spent years on the insurance situation in Asheville and was nationally recognized for his solutions such as “The Asheville Project”. Under his leadership, the City of Asheville invested a small amount of money and built a corporation called “Asheville Claims Corporation” to handle critical insurance payments and pay city employees premiums. This “Asheville Claims Corporation” had a total worth of 5 million dollars. Sources tell us that when John Miall retired the Finance Director dissolved Asheville Claims Corp. and dumped all the money (5 million dollars) into the city’s General Fund which only lasted 1 fiscal year. Note, money in the General Fund can be used for any purpose. This money could save Paxton Mitchell’s life.

If you recall, in 2007 the City of Asheville had a 2.4 million dollar deficit. A few months later the City Budget Dept. announced they had a 2.5 million dollar surplus…

Just when you thought it was safe for the corrupt politicians in Asheville, the Stompers have opened another can of worms.

Pray For President Bush

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 24, 2008

I would like to remind my readers who believe in the power of prayer to pray for the President. While we may not not always agree with his decisions, he is still the leader that God has selected for us, and we should lift him up, and seek God’s Face on his behalf.

Prayforgeorgewbush.com is a non-denominational, non-partisan ministry dedicated to lifting up President George W. Bush in Prayer as he serves this country as President of the United States. For over four years, God-fearing Americans have gathered to lift up the man whom God has placed in the office of the Presidency (Romans 13:1 “Everyone must submit to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those that exist are instituted by God.”-HCSB™). During this time of national triumph and tragedy, we have seen God work in marvelous ways in the life our our country and its president.
Read our current prayer suggestions by clicking on “Action Items” to the left. And, see the basis for our coming to the Lord in prayer by clicking on “Key Scriptures.”

I just felt a calling to let others know of this website today.
