Tea Partiers Trounce Union Thugs

Below is a guest column by Henry Kreigel a fellow Bozeman Tea Party Patriot, conservative radio host, and overall great guy.  He wrote a piece on the Obama protest other things Tea Party.  He also has just started a blog which can be found here.

Tea Partiers Trounce Union Thugs:

What Really Happened Outside Obama’s Town Hall Meeting

The Bozeman Tea Party and supporters clashed with paid union thugs outside the President’s Town Hall Meeting.  The union hacks, modern-day brownshirts, included Service Employees International Union, a group affiliated with ACORN and the Montana AFL-CIO who bussed down union members and paid community organizers from Missoula and elsewhere around the state. While the Obama supporters arrived in the middle of the night, claimed our permitted area and had an early advantage with numbers, we eventually turned out 300-350 people and trounced them. The conflict which bordered on getting physically violent was in stark contrast to the tightly orchestrated event inside the hangar where the town hall meeting took place.

Baucus Needs to Apologize

Yesterday, the Bozeman Tea Party put out a press release, which I have posted below and can be found here.

The release asks Senator Max Baucus to apologize for his comments following his Make Health Happen Summit in Bozeman.  I attended the protest at the Museum of the Rockies.  While protesting Max drove up and got out of his car, the protesters gathered around him to hear what he had to say.  He stayed there for about 10-15 minutes answering questions from the protesters.

Most of his answers were the typical politician answers and he would not take the megaphone we offered so the whole crowd could hear him, but I gave him credit for getting out of his car and talking to us.

What I didn’t know was that it was a political trap set by the Senator.  A few days later in this article in the Daily Interlake he said that “these people were not civil.  This was the closest thing to a mob that I’ve ever experienced in my life.”

Luckily, my camera has a video recorder on it and I have most it on tape.  Please check it out for yourself at www.youtube.com/tsnleader.  I also wonder if Max has ever been to a Cat-Griz game, which are MUCH more “mob-like.” Continue reading

Thank You Obama Protesters

Let me first thank everyone who came out to protest Obama at the Bozeman Airfield on Friday.  It was because of you we had a successful event!!  I was inspired to see so many patriots standing up to preserve their freedoms and stop government from taking over another private industry.

We outnumbered supporters of the President’s policies about 3-1 and made our voices heard.  They brought in paid activists on busses who tried to drag us down…but we wouldn’t be stopped.  We had Montana citizens from all over the state that organized and came to the protest.

People from all over the state spoke.  We heard from an emergency room doctor from Billings, a women from Kalispell who lived in England, a Neurosurgeon, and many other patriots from Montana.

Fun at the Fair

Thanks to everyone who came by our booth at the Gallatin County Fair this past week.  We had a great time talking and meeting with new and old friends.  The weather was great and we enjoyed ourselves.

Above is a video of our booth at the Gallatin County Fair and some fun we had afterward.  Jeremy did go longer on the bull than I did, but he used his 2nd hand numerous times to cheat and stay up.  I would have to declare myself the winner by disqualification.

Obamacare

Healthcare Finger on the Pulse

I’ve seen articles, blogs, ABC infomercials, and rallies on Obama’s desire to have government run health care.  As you probably know I constantly wonder how, and why, politicians keep spending our hard-earned money.  The politicians need to stop spending or the dollar will continue to fall and they will bankrupt this great country.  By permitting politicians to spend and spend we are allowing them to take away our rights and freedoms.

All of the price estimates I’ve heard for the health care price tag are between $1 – $1.5 TRILLION DOLLARS?!

If politicians really want to save our children then CUT SPENDING and GET OUT of our health care system.

California’s Budget Mess

CA Budget Pic

Years ago, I had the (dis)pleasure of working in California on a few political fights.  California is a beautiful state, but the liberal spend and spend more politicians were driving the car off the cliff.

Anyone with half a brain could see what was going on, but the politicians did NOTHING about it.  They just continued to spend and grow government.  The politicians did find time to blame their problems on other things, like the two-thirds vote needed to pass tax increases and term limits.

A great victory for gun owners across the country…

NRA

A stunning victory for gun owners as Congress votes to allow citizens to carry loaded firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges. This is a first step to regaining our Second Amendment rights taken away by the Brady Act.  

On a national level, our country is finally moving in the right direction.  What I thought was impressive about the legislation was that a total of 105 Democrats broke with party lines to join 174 Republicans to support the gun measure.  When the Republicans controlled the House this bill didn’t get passed.
