Charlotte Bergmann for Congress

Last night I had the privilege to attend a Meet and Greet with Charlotte Bergmann. I met some wonderful fellow Patriots. Charlotte Bergmann is the Republican that ran against CongressCritter Steve Cohen last year. Seeing as TN-9 is one of the safest districts for DemonRats, it wasn't a surprise that Cohen was re-elected. Charlotte is running again next year and 2012 may be the year that shakes up Memphis politics.

As we survey the national scene, no one is happy with the economy. The oppressive leftist agenda of BO/BS and the DemonRats have crippled this economy. The black community has been especially hard hit with an unemployment rate 15.1% in July. As we look at Memphis, we're seeing the results of the truth that government isn't the solution; it's the problem. I think it's time that the truth of empowerment and conservative principles can make a dent in the voters in TN-9. Charlotte Bergmann is the person to take that message to the voters here in Memphis. She's a conservative black woman who is a small business owner herself. The bottle-neck will be in getting the message out. She'll need volunteers and financial support. She'll need outside the box thinkers. How can we educate Memphis voters who depend on government to take an honest look at the consequences of it and ask the question; "How is that working for you and your family?" We have the perfect opportunity to ask, "Which is better; a job or a check from the government?" How happy are with you your children's schools? The crime in your neighborhoods? Conservatives have the answers, we just need to get out, engage Memphis voters and educate.

Will you help? Will you be part of the solution?

Here are 5 easy ways to help get Charlotte Bergmann to D.C.

  • Go to Click on the Like button on the website for her official Facebook political page. After you like her page, go to the page and look on the bottom left corner and click the Share button to share on your homepage. Ask others to like her page. Sharing once is great, but sharing often is even better.
  • On your mobile phone, open a new text message. In the phone number block, enter 72727 and in the message portion input ivote. This will be one of the tools Charlotte will use to communicate with us, her supporters.
  • Host a meet and greet with your top 10-20 friends or find someone to host events for Charlotte. You can sign up on her website.
  • Word of mouth is also an important tool. Please take every opportunity to talk about Charlotte, telling everyone that you come in contact with .... "Have you heard about Charlotte Bergmann running for Congress?" Refer to her website or text ivote to 72727. The website is the database for all to sign in, to volunteer, get information etc.
  • Most importantly, pray that we will fill key rolls quickly and find people to start investing in Charlotte and her beliefs early so we can begin reaching the public.

    I'm going to actively support Charlotte Bergmann. Will you?

    Self Discipline

    Today's Biblical Virtue to pray for our kids is Self-Discipline.

    "Father, I pray that my children may acquire a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair."

    "To receive moral instruction in skillful living, in righteousness, justice, and equity." ~Proverbs 1:3~

    Wow; another one that is convicting to me as a parent. How can I pray for Self-Discipline in my children if I am not modeling it for them.

    I Never Thought . . .

    Look what I found when cleaning out a closet in my girl's bedroom.
    This is for Daddy Bush. I never thought I'd be wishing for the Clinton years again.

    Actually, I'd love for the Federal government to go back to the budgets during the Clinton years.

    Sarah Palin Answers Real Questions from CNN

    H/T to Conservatives4Palin for this great video of Sarah Palin answering questions from CNN's Don Lemon at the Iowa State Fair.

    One of the reasons that I love Sarah Palin is that she is middle America. She's not afraid to take it to BO/BS. America needs to defeat BO/BS and the DemonRat's agenda in 2012 and beyond. I believe Sarah Palin has the experience and love of America to do just this.

    I can see 2012 from my house!

    What is the Dems Plan?

    Last weekend, CongressCritter Steve Cohen was interviewed by Neil Cavuto and 1) disputed the fact that according to the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation, over 1/2 of Americans don't pay Federal Income Taxes and 2) that even if that were true, these 50% of Americans shouldn't pay any because they are poor and can't afford it like the "rich".

    Apparently, I wasn't the only taxpayer that took note of Mr. Cohen's answer and he too wants to hear Mr. Cohen's plan for how he would reduced the deficit.
    From the Commercial Appeal
    Kudos to U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen for his candor regarding the fairness of the tax code. When confronted by Neil Cavuto with facts showing that the rich already pay most of the taxes while half of Americans pay no income tax at all, Cohen acknowledged that fairness is not the real issue. Comparing the federal government to "bank robbers," Cohen explained that the real reason the rich are targeted is because "that's where the money is."

    What Cohen fails to mention, however, is the fact that taxing only the rich will not raise enough revenue to solve our nation's debt problem. The balanced approach advocated by the Democrats will require raising taxes on families earning well below $250,000 who do not consider themselves to be rich. I therefore urge Cohen to put forth a specific, detailed deficit reduction plan so that we can see exactly whose taxes he plans to raise and by how much.

    Brian Teepe


    In the comments, one supporter of Mr. Cohen offered up this summary of Mr. Cohen's plan.
    cpcobb writes:

    "Congressman Steve Cohen supports President Obama's plan for reducing the federal deficit. In a city where so many citizens are dependent upon social security, medicare, and medicaid, Congressman Cohen has said he does not want these benefits reduced, so he is in favor of reduced defense spending, closing corporate tax loopholes, and raising taxes on those whose income is $250,000 and more -- that is, Obama's plan. Congressman Cohen is championing the Memphis Aerotropolis, a long-term development plan to boost Memphis business. Personally, I would like to see corporate tax loopholes closed but at the same time have the corporate capital gains tax rate reduced to promote business development. All things considered, Congressman Steve Cohen is the best person to represent the best interests of all Memphis citizens in the federal government."

    My answer to this was:

    "Actually BO/BS doesn’t have a plan. He never put one down on paper.

    1) SS, M/C, and M/D are broke. They have to be restructured if anybody is going to be benefiting from them in the near future.

    2) BO/BS's idea to close the "loophole" for corporate jet owners would only put $3 Billion into the treasury over the next decade according to Bloomberg.

    3) You could eliminate Defense spending ~which is the main job of the federal government~ and still only reduce the deficit by 1/3.

    4) The rich don't earn enough to cover what Congress spends each year.
    From 2009 per the IRS:

    AGI over $200K = $1,964.3 B Taxes paid = $434.3 B
    AGI under $200K = $5,861.1 B Taxes paid = $431.6 B
    Individual Income Taxes paid in 2009 = $865.9 Billion.

    You could confiscate all incomes over $200K and NOT cover DemonRat Congressional Spending.

    You could double all individual income taxes and NOT cover DemonRat Congressional Spending.

    The problem is spending, pure and simple. We send enough $$ to politicians in D.C.
    The National Debt has increased by $4.8 Trillion since Mr. Cohen was elected to Congress in 2006. His plan is to continue to buy votes by spending taxpayers money. Taxpayers can’t afford him anymore."

    Another commenter ~New Guy~ took issue with my facts from the IRS about how much the rich could pay with this comment:

    "this statement is factually incorrect in composition statistics intended to be misleading. As reported quite widely in news (including Fox) the return of rates to 2001 levels for 200k/250k people would raise $70B alone. That is a 3%-4.5% increase in their marginal rate only. I'm not suggesting it be this, but if you raised it 70%, it would be well over the deficit all by itself."

    To which I replied:

    "You must have went to Memphis City Schools and flunked math. $70 Billion does not even touch this year's deficit. The deficit for 2009 was $1,400 Billion; 2010 was $1,300 Billion and it's on track to be $1,600 Billion this year. The Federal government will spend $3,800 Billion this year and borrow $1,645 Billion.
    If you taxed those $200K and up at 100%, you would only get $869 Billion."

    Mr. Cohen, What's Balanced about 51% of Americans that pay NO Fed Taxes?

    CongressCritter Steve Cohen tries to make the case for "shared sacrifice" and is called on it by Neil Cavuto.

    Since Mr. Cohen apparently doesn't know that 51% of Americans don't pay Federal Income taxes, here is the letter from the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation.
    In summary, for tax year 2009, approximately 22% of all tax units, including filers and non filers, will have zero income tax liability, approximately 30% will receive a refundable credit, and approximately 49% will have a positive income tax liability.

    Now granted I didn't go to Memphis City Schools, but 100 - 49 = 51.

    Here's another little factoid for Mr. Cohen. There aren't enough rich to tax to cover the deficit. From the From the IRS: 8,274 people with incomes of $10 million per year or more — earned a total of $240 billion in 2009. You could confiscate all their income and only run the government for 24 days. Also, individual tax collections totaled $1,175,422,000,000 in 2009. Doubling federal income taxes for everyone would still leave us $400 billion or so shy of balancing the budget.

    What budget have you ever balanced, Mr. Cohen?

    Some Questions for Steve Cohen

    CongressCritter Steve Cohen had an interview with Kris Anderson @WREG on Friday, August 5, 2011.

    As a taxpayer, here are a few questions that I have for Steve Cohen:

  • Why have a debt ceiling if it always gets raised?
  • What's extreme about a balanced budget? 49 states have some sort of balanced budget amendments, including TN.
  • What jobs have you ever created other than government jobs?
  • You say we need more stimulus for infrastructure but only 3% of the last $787 Billion stimulus actually went to infrastructure. Why should taxpayers believe you this time?

    I've posted these questions to him via his FaceBook page where he posted the link to the interview. Relying on his past history, I'm not holding my breath for answers from him.
  • The Fight I'm Waiting For

    Hat tip to Conservative TreeHouse
    Palin Power Coming On Stronger by Lloyd Marcus.
    Sarah Palin's latest "in your face" to the Obama administration in defense of the Tea Party is guaranteed to infuriate the left and terrify the timid on our side. Sarah said, "If we were real domestic terrorists, shoot, Obama would want to pal around with us, wouldn't he?"

    Wow! I loooooooove this woman!

    Compare Palin's cojones to those of Republican presidential candidate, Jon Huntsman. Huntsman encouraged Republicans to surrender to Obama during the debt ceiling battle. Get this, folks: as a contender for the White House, Huntsman said he will not attack Obama.

    How absurd is that? Huntsman's going into the ring with the Mike Tyson of politics, and his strategy is not to hit.

    Compared to the John-Wayne true grit of Sarah Palin, Mr. Huntsman sounds pathetically metrosexual.

    Talk about a "no surrender, no retreat" attitude! Despite a relentless and unprecedented effort to destroy her and her family, Palin is just as bold and beautiful as she was when she gave her extraordinary VP nominee acceptance speech in 2008.

    I know you fearful folks on our side will flood me with e-mails about how Palin is too this or too that. Well, I am sorry, but every time this woman speaks, I feel excited. But most important, I feel empowered. After the Republicans' depressing cave on the debt ceiling, Lord knows we Tea Party patriots desperately need to feel empowered.

    So many folks on our side feel they must walk on eggshells, careful not to offend the left. Palin boldly and unapologetically stands up for God, family, and country.

    The left has so successfully branded traditional values embraced by most Americans extreme, many feel intimidated and fearful to stand up for them. For example, I caught a minute of a TV show called The Glee Project which is obviously targeted for youths. The show featured young couples, including two boys as a couple, sexually caressing each other while singing a song about "going all the way." The musical production number was a blatant promotion of homosexuality and promiscuity to our kids.

    Call me an old fuddy-duddy, and while I realize that the TV show is on cable, I still found it a bit shocking and outrageous that such programming is considered normal.

    The left appears to be calling the shots and setting the rules, culturally and politically. Advisers say we conservatives must be civil, willing to compromise and work with the other side.

    I am all for civility, but it works only when both sides have honorable intentions. Civility does not work when one side, Obama and the Democrats, treats the discord as a no-holds-barred street brawl. The left views civility from their opposition as a window of opportunity to strike and land a deathblow.

    Sarah Palin fully understands this reality. Palin realizes that the left will never fight fair or be honest. Pandering to the left is perceived as weakness. Thus, the only solution is to defeat them.

    I still marvel at how some people on our side have bought into the Obama media's manufactured image of Palin.

    While the left's destruction of her image is extremely successful on some level, Palin's "right stuff" still bursts through, casting a powerful beam of light and exhilarating millions. Palin has "it." Whatever that "it" is, this amazing woman has "it."

    Can you imagine the excitement of Palin throwing her hat into the 2012 presidential ring? Move over, Thrilla in Manila (Ali/Frazier), as the most exciting fight of all time. I'm talkin' Palin vs. Obama, Mano a Mano: the Thrilla from Wasilla vs. the Chicago Thug.

    Betting on this "fight of the century" could help Vegas's economy recover from Reid being their senator and Obama trashing businesses that go there.

    The more I think about Palin vs. Obama in the ring, the more excited I become. Images flash in my brain. It is the long-awaited, much-anticipated day of the main event.

    Palin enters the ring wearing an Old Glory-themed robe to Lee Greenwood singing "God Bless the USA (Proud to be an American)." Obama enters the ring wearing a pink robe, courtesy of Code Pink, as Al Sharpton sings "We Shall Overcome."

    For fourteen rounds, Obama and Palin pound each as the upper hand changes several times. Then, round fifteen -- the final round.

    Palin, exhausted from battling Obama and his tag-team partner, the liberal media, miraculously lands a knockout punch to Obama's jaw. The final bell rings. The fight is over. Sarah Palin has won the 2012 presidential election. The crowd of mostly Tea Party patriots goes crazy with jubilation. Obama's media is stunned.

    Reporters flock to the rubber-legged, emotionally drained Palin. Sarah's eyes focus on her husband Todd as he pushes his way through the thronging media. Sarah fearfully yells, "Tooooooodd!" Todd yells, "Sarah!"

    Finally he reaches her. They embrace. "Todd, I love you!" "I love you, too!" is Todd's reply. Our national anthem plays in the background.

    I can't wait!

    Why Does the FDA Need a Swat Team?

    From my fellow Patriots at Conservative TreeHouse
    Breaking news: Multi-agency armed raid hits Rawesome Foods, Healthy Family Farms for selling raw milk and cheese

    Learn more:NaturalNews

    A multi-agency SWAT-style armed raid was conducted this morning by helmet-wearing, gun-carrying enforcement agents from the LA County Sheriff's Office, the FDA, the Dept. of Agriculture and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control).

    This story is now being followed and widely reported on InfoWars ( and the Drudge Report ( See updates below...

    Rawesome Foods, a private buying club offering wholesome, natural raw milk and raw cheese products (among other wholesome foods) is founded by James Stewart, a pioneer in bringing wholesome raw foods directly to consumers through a buying club. James was followed from his private residence by law enforcement, and when he entered his store, the raid was launched.

    Law enforcement demanded that all customers (members) of the store vacate the premises, then they demanded to know how much cash James had at the store. When James explained the amount of cash he had at the store -- which is used to purchase product for selling there -- agents demanded to know why he had such an amount of cash and where it came from.

    James was handcuffed, was never read his rights and was stuffed into an unmarked car. While agents said they would leave behind a warrant, no one has yet had any opportunity to even see if such a warrant exists or if it is a complete warrant.

    Law enforcement then proceeded to destroy the inventory of the story by pouring the milk down the drain and / or confiscating raw cheese and fresh produce for destruction. Video now posted at NaturalNews.TV:

    Note to NaturalNews readers: We believe this was an ILLEGAL raid being conducted mob-style by government thugs who respect no law and no rights. This is an all-out war by the government against people who try to promote healthy raw and living foods.

    James is now being held at the Pacific division police department at Centinela and Culver in Los Angeles. He is being held at $123,000 bail with no possibility of using bail bonds. Law enforcement has demanded that if he comes up with the money to cover bail, he must disclose to them all the sources of that money. (This is an illegal demand!)

    Massive public protests are needed to teach these criminal law enforcement agencies that they cannot illegally arrest and persecute individuals merely for buying and selling raw milk and cheese. We are organizing a public protest day in cooperation with James. Please watch NaturalNews for an announcement of that. Story is developing...

    Right now, James needs help raising money with his legal defense needs. Our non-profit Consumer Wellness Center is currently serving as the collection point for donations. You may donate right now at (100% of the donations go directly to James' legal defense needs, the Consumer Wellness Center keeps nothing).

    See this video of James Stewart talking about his farm:

    Story on

    Here's background on Healthy Family Farms which was also targeted in the raid:

    Healthy Family Farms in Santa Paula, California:

    "Healthy Family Farms is a sustainable, pasture-based farming operation. We raise all our livestock on pasture. We raise all of our animals from birth. We do not feed any of our animals soy, choosing instead to feed animals as they are designed to be fed. This results in healthy, sturdy animals needing no hormones, antibiotics, or other artificial "enhancements." We harvest our animals humanely by hand before they are delivered to the farmers markets. We never freeze our products. In addition to farmer's markets sales, we have an active CSA, which offers discounts to our valued members."

    Watch for more breaking news on this story. We are fed up with these illegal mob-style raids against the raw foods community! It is time to protest and fight back against tyranny!
