Tell the IRS it's not their job to regulate free speech!

E-mail Print PDF


At our last general meeting we brought up how the IRS is considering new regulations that would change the rules for non-profits and what would be considered partisan political speech. The proposed regulations curtail free speech by making it extremely difficult for Americans to voice their concerns during the times when it matters most. We have a right to talk to, and about, elected officials without restriction.

The actual proposed regulation can be found here at regulations.gov. Over 50,000 comments have been submitted, some in favor of the proposed recommendations! If you would like to make your own comment you can do so here on their COMMENT PAGE. Comments can be submitted up to midnight of February 27th.

Another available resource with recommendations for comments can be found here at AFP's Block The IRS. Please consider leaving a comment, we all have the right to hold elected officials accountable. Tell the IRS it's not their job to regulate free speech!

Washington and More...

My friends,

It's only been a week since we last met, and yet, so much has happened in the past week, that I am sure has you feeling over-whelmed and helpless. This is what we have been watching and unfortunately waiting for. What you are seeing is classic Cloward-Piven strategy, overload the system to force the progressive agenda. Watch what the left hand so you don't know what the right hand is doing. Unfortunately for them... We Are Still Watching!!!

Take a deep breath and remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Rahm Emanuel once preached "Never let a serious crisis go to waste..." All the "scandals" that we have heard over the last month, now they are trying to back door "Amnesty". On both the federal and state level, we are seeing Common Core be forced onto our children, Governor Corbett is considering caving on his stance on the Medicaid expansion, not to mention Agenda 21 and Smart Meters! So much going on, it can be nerve wracking, and boy they aren't wasting any time at all!

Now, once again, limited government activists are being beckoned to Washington. I've been contacted by more then a few people to ask if the group will be sponsoring a bus trip. My answer is kind of a good news bad news thing. Unfortunately, I must tell you,  NO, the LVTP will not be able to sponsor a bus. With the short time period that we were given, our bylaws do not allow us to spend that kind of money without a full membership vote. No one wishes more then I do that we received this information sooner.

But here is the good news!! I know a member who is looking into renting a van to go down Washington. Now, this is not set in stone, and if this member DOES get a van, and has space- I will let everyone know through an email blast. (SPACE WOULD BE EXTREMELY LIMITED AND YOU WOULD BE EXPECTED TO PAY PART OF THE COST FOR RENTAL AND/OR MILAGE) But that's not all!!!! I've been on the phone all day, looking for buses that are leaving within relative driving distance from our area. The closest buses I found are leaving from New Jersey. I asked their local coordinator to send me their information, which is attached below (These buses are sure things guys!)

But now you're saying, Joan, I just can't get off from work. I know this is super super important stuff. I just don't know what I can do!??!?! Don't fret. I'm going to tell you! First though, let's have a frank discussion... After the marching and protesting is done, we go home, and say, “Well, I've done my part. Can't do much more- with how many people were there, there's no way they could ignore or forget about us.” I've got news for you. They DO ignore us. They DO forget about us. We must ALWAYS make our voices heard. Let's be honest, we need to keep the pressure on, it's what the other side is doing. Why aren't we? It requires YOUR action. The Tea Party is not a social club. We are happy if you come to meetings, we all need to keep learning, we are way behind the learning curve, but lets not forget why we are here... We are trying to protect YOUR individual rights! We can not do this alone. YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING WITH IT!!! We need YOU to step into action. NOW IS THE TIME!!!! If we loose this battle, the war is almost surely lost. It's time to stop watching at the sidelines....You MUST step upClick Here to find out how!

An Open Letter to all Congressman and Senators:

The Lehigh Valley 9-12 Project/Tea Party Group, representing constituents in Lehigh and Northampton counties in Pennsylvania, echoing Tea Party sentiments across the nation, is writing to you regarding the recent White House scandals that have been highlighted in the press recently. Benghazi, IRS Intimidation, HHS Donation Scandal, Fast and Furious, the Department of Justice Phone Tap and as of today the NSA PRISM scandal. It is unclear how many more wrongdoings will be uncovered. However all the scandals we know about are examples of this administration's abuse of power and blatant failure to accept responsibility for these abuses.

The First Amendment of the Constitution reads “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” In the past six weeks, we have seen every part of this inalienable right trampled and abandoned. This is not a Left or Right issue that can be ignored at will, this is an American problem that defies the American people's basic constitutional rights and it needs to be fixed.

These controversies are the result of lies, cover-ups and gross incompetence. The American people deserve the truth! We the people say “No More!” We demand that our representatives in Washington stop putting party politics and ideology ahead of public interest. We demand that public investigations be done thoroughly and with due diligence and have justice served swiftly to those involved in these usurpations and atrocities, no matter how high up the chain of command that these violations go.

For too many years, the American people have sat idly by and watched their individual rights and freedoms slowly erode away. To quote Senator Rob Portman of the Senate Finance Committee, “The Tea Party was right, the government has overstepped its bounds!” We demand a vote of no confidence against any and all public servants that have allowed governmental agencies be used for intimidation.

We respectfully petition you to take steps to eliminate the Internal Revenue Service, Department of Education, the Environmental Protection Agency and every governmental agency that is not constitutionally mandated so that they may never be used to intimidate any American citizen again. We call on you to take steps to eliminate and defund every agency and program that stifles the principles of free enterprise, individual rights and free will and return those powers to the states as outlined in the 9th and 10th Amendment.

We simply ask that you honor your oaths to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

Respectfully Submitted,

The Lehigh Valley Project 9-12/Tea Party Group

Joan Campbell, Chair
