LIBERTY ALERT - February 27, 2012

I spent the entire weekend with my mother.  She is dealing with cancer and we are taking care of her in our home.  She had a pretty good weekend but could not be left alone.  I really needed to work but spent a lot of time in her room watching old movies and spending time with her.  Sometimes you just have to stop and rest so you can go another day.


Little did I know that while I watched the movies, I would see signs that had to do with my “head talk about Liberty.”


One of the movies we watched was about the little girl, Amber, who was abducted off her bike, sexually abused and murdered.  That little girl’s mother used the most horrible experience of her life to make a difference for others.  She went to her local city council, her state legislators, her Governor (George Bush) and to the President (Clinton) to encourage them to enact the Amber Alert bill.  She wanted to make sure no other child would endure what Amber did.


We all know the outcome of her passion to alert the community of a child abduction.  When the TV signals an Amber Alert, we all perk up, watch intently and take note of the description of the one who stole our children.  We pay attention to our surroundings and we report if we see something that might save them from a horrible ending.  Because of Amber Alerts, many children have been saved and there are many happy endings.  Amber’s mother must certainly find joy in those happy endings.


As I watched that movie, with tears for Amber and her mother, I realized we are similar to Amber’s mom.  We are passionate about those who are abducting our liberties.  We write blogs, we make videos, we write letters to the newspapers and we contact our representatives.  We do our part yet Liberty is still in peril in America.


Today, we will begin a posting called Liberty Alerts.  These alerts will come from various organizations that are doing their part to alert us to losses of liberty here in America. 


Take a few moments out of your day and become educated about the erosion of your God-given freedoms.  You must do all you can to protect them AND to protect them for the children who are so young and need us to stand in the gap for them. 


These are your children, your grandchildren, your nieces and nephews or even your neighbors’ children.  They are precious and looking to us to secure their liberties forevermore.






  • Occupy Movement doesn’t know why they are protesting.  Can’t speak English.  Have Masters who tell them to speak or not speak.  This is who will occupy the polls in November.  Get involved and stand up for Liberty now!  Join your local tea party’s efforts to Get Out the Vote.


  • Muslim Brother Ahmed Bedier organizes Florida Capitol Day this week  Ahmed Bedier is a rising star in the Florida Muslim community (Ummah). His persona has been carefully crafted but there are two faces of Ahmed Bedier: Muslim rights activist and Islamic anarchist. He has Muslim Brotherhood friends and the Tampa, FL based organization he founded – United Voices for America (UVA). UVA is hosting its fourth annual Muslim Capitol Day in Tallahassee, FL from February 28 to March 1, 2012.  Read the entire story here:


  • Below the fold at - Check out various videos produced by Big Voices as well as others who are partnering with BIG to bring the Liberty message to the world.  Cord Byrd, a local attorney, has his new Byrd Watch that is really interesting.  Enjoy the views!



I wanted to make sure you were all aware of an important panel that Heritage & NRO are hosting later today (at Heritage.) You know the liberals have taken to calling opposition to Obamacare's anti-conscience mandate a "war against women."

We all know that's not true: it's about religious liberty -- not birth control. And there are plenty of women -- including myself -- out there who stand against it. Go to Heritage at 2pmET or watch the event online! Details below:   Women Speak Out: Obamacare Tramples Religious Liberty.

Thanks to all of you for your sweet notes of support and encouragement.  Mom is having a couple of bad days and has lost weight.  She is shrinking right before our eyes.  I call her the Incredible Shrinking Woman because she is so incredibly good.  She is a sweet precious thing and we are so honored to be able to care for her in our home.  Thank you again - your support is so uplifting.

Billie, there was a shining face missing at the AFP event two weeks ago, that face was yours.  We found out later that your mom was in end stage and not doing well, we sighed, and prayed for you and your mom.  May God be with your mom in her final days and may she go peacefully with Him. Our prayers are with you and your family.

I like the idea of Liberty Alerts and thanks for sharing the Byrd Watch.

Billie, your Mother and your Family will continue to be in Dottie's and my thoughts and prayers.  You are there for us, we are there for you.

 Thank-you for the updates Billie. I agree we need an ALERT! RED, yes I belive it would be the color.


 Thoughts and prayers to you and your Mom. As a "survivor" and having a daughter in law who is also a "survivor" I know what you and your Mom are going through. She will be on our "list" for prayer. God Bless.

Good idea John! I thought the color coded terror threat alerts were a good idea. The DHS current regime didn't and ended them--what a surprize.  Bringing it back is warranted especially now!

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
