Today is Sunday before the primary election in Florida.  My phone is hot to the touch as media outlets and candidate consultants reach out to hear what I have to say.  This is the strangest experience of my life and I need to share it with you.  Why is it strange?  Because I am just Billie.  I am no one special.  I have never run for office.  I am a Daughter, a Sister, a Wife, a Mother, a Business Owner, a Tea Party Founder and most of all, a Christian.  Who the heck am I to be playing at this level in the biggest political game of our country?


I did not plan to be a “tea party leader.”  It just happened.  It happened because in 2008 when John McCain suspended his campaign to return to Washington, I knew right then and there – our country was in deep trouble.  As a consultant to CEOs and executives, I knew those words were leading us to a troubled situation that needed a turnaround strategy.


The “turnaround strategy” that Pres. Bush used was a bailout.  That was not what the people wanted and thus began, the Tea Party Movement. 


We the People were not happy with the bailout strategy and instead wanted the chips to fall where they may and let the free markets right themselves without government interference.  We became fully awake and aware that the government had grown too big for its britches and it was time for us to remind them who was in charge.


It’s been a long 3 years since that dreadful bailout day.  We have grown in numbers and grown in wisdom through research and civic involvement.  We are not sleeping anymore and those in charge of the government wish we were.


So here we are – the next Presidential election is looming.  The candidates are one by one whittling away and the last man will stand as the candidate for the GOP.  The tea party has become involved in the GOP – which was our strategy to return the GOP to its rightful place as the Conservative watchdog for our Constitutional rights.  Many tea party members have infiltrated the GOP and we are proud that we have made a difference.  Last November we sent tea party candidates to Washington and tea party Governors to lead many states.


Now the biggest game of all is here.  We are watching the players of the Big Game show up.  They are the campaign consultants who appear as talking heads on national media outlets.  They are the media who has “experts” on board about political campaigning.  They are the former “has-been consultants and political operatives” who no one will hire but media outlets will use for entertainment purposes.  They are the advertising companies who write ads and manipulate the truth so they can win the next campaign contract.  They are the candidates who are either in the race for their own personal agendas OR are in it because they have been called to this moment in time. 


It is a rough time for the people of the United States.  We are watching TV ads devour the truth to ensure their man wins.  We are watching candidates ignore us as they go back to their normal campaign playbooks.  We are watching media outlets ask irrelevant questions instead of ones that mean the most to us on the front lines of America.  We are watching candidates actually lie to us knowing full well we will do our research and discover the truth.


We the People are weary from these tactics and tired of the lies and deceit that is showing up on our airwaves and from the mouths of the candidates. 


I am writing to you today because I feel it is important for all of us to understand how important your vote is this coming Tuesday. 


The GOP made a decision to move up their primary.  When they did so, they lost delegates and it changed the game for Florida.  They also made a decision that the winner will take all in Florida.  In other words, the GOP establishment knew that the tea party had taken over many of the local RECs and they were doing their best to manipulate the process.  They were in fact sending us a message – “Don’t mess with us.  We know how to play the game.”


A political consultant recently said, “If you want to be a player and you want a seat at the table, you need to get on board with the establishment’s game and choice.  Otherwise you will be sitting outside with your nose pressed against the window looking in and wishing you could be inside.  If you don’t play nice with them, they will destroy you.”


I was stunned by the statement but not surprised. 


Here was my answer – What’s new.  We the People have been sitting outside for nearly 100 years.  We have no desire to sit at the table – we have the desire to take the table from those who think it belongs to them!  It’s our civic duty to do so according to the Declaration of Independence:


When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.



Another phone call came this morning from a well-respected leader of the Tea Party Movement.  He said I would be one of the tea party leaders every candidate would be watching for the next 48 hours.  They are all waiting for your endorsement.  “This is your time,” he said.


So I have made a decision to give that endorsement and it will be a surprise to many who read this.   It may appear to be “political” in nature but the reality is, I believe in something bigger than one candidate.  I believe in We the People.


I am endorsing We the People because I believe they will make the right decision based on facts, data, research and truth this coming Tuesday.  I am endorsing the people because they have become wise and know that what we are seeing on the airwaves and hearing from the mouths of some of these candidates is not truth.  I am endorsing the people because I trust them more than I trust any consultant, media personality or “has been political operatives.”  I trust the people to show the establishment that times have changed and no matter what games they are playing – we have another one that is being played too.


Our game has one goal in mind – To right this country to it’s Constitutional foundation and return our nation back to the hands of the people.  We have a mess on our hands and the governmental bureaucrats and politicians need to get out of our way so we can fix it.  They can’t but we can.


So there you go, my friends – My Endorsement is for We the People and when you finally have the last man standing – I will work for that man and will do all I can to ensure that President Obama packs his bags and goes back to Chicago.  I will work tirelessly to support the last man standing because we must!


May God bless you all as you decide the best man who will earn the right to be our President.  Do not take this vote lightly – we are all counting on you to bring us the best man for the job. 


And one last thing – Pray hard and Pray often.  God is giving you a chance to be a part of something Big in America.  He loves us and loves this great country that was founded on His principles.  All He needs is to hear from us and He will give us the desires of our heart.  He believes in free will so He will not intervene unless we ask Him to do so.


It’s Sunday and Tuesday’s coming.   May God Save the USA is my favorite song and I think it's time we heard it again today.  Thanks Murray for these wonderful words.

Ken:  Have you joined us over at Cord Byrd's blog: "This is only a test...."  Great Blog, "come on down!"

Comment by Bill Jefferson on February 3, 2012 at 8:45am

Ken:  That is some in-depth reading!  I admire someone who can, and will, read material that has such great historical importance.  That sounds like something that could have been on Thomas Jefferson's reading list!  I don't think those of us who have been "dumbed down" -- to whatever degree -- are at fault 100%.  We must consider that these "social engineers" who have been planning this Great Global Government for all these decades, are very shrewd critters.  They definitely see the Big Picture and think on a level the typical American or European citizen  does not.    Our success at fending off the Globalist Monsters is to be aware of their plans.  They do have a tendency to brag and count their chickens before the hatching.  For example, Daddy Bush 41 proclaimed (on 9/11/90 - "coincidentally") -- a "New World Order".  "They" are convinced they have already achieved their goal of taking over the world and believe they are so in control that it doesn't matter if The Sheeple know or not.  The people who dare consider "conspiracy theories" are demonized because they are on to The Truth of "reality".  They love to use metaphors, movies (The Matrix and many more), and "magic numbers" 9/11, 7/7, 3/11 and on and on.  I'll stop here.  Keep up the good work Ken.

What's the difference?  The more Romney speaks, the closer he gets to Hussein Obozo.  The more Romney speaks, the better Ron Paul sounds.  Everyone likes Ron Paul EXCEPT for his views on Foreign Policy; however I don't see where his views would be any more detrimental than that which is being actuated today by Obozo.  The more Romney speaks, the more emphasis is placed on the fact Ron Paul doesn't waver, hasn't wavered in the last 25 years and is not swayed by polls.  If anything he is giving direction to said polls.  Judge Napolitano had a great show tonight; catch it on his web if you can.

Bill,  this conversation will be more to your liking

Comment by DURWIN WALTER DAVIS on February 2, 2012 at 1:49pm

I see the forest was missed while being lost in the trees.  Ron Paul is probably the furtherest from Hussein Obozo, in the financial galaxy.  There is, maybe, enough "star cluster" between them to ensure the two will never meet in competition.  Julius' end was brought about by his "like minded friends".  I am entertained; please carry on...

When it gets down to the General "Election" (Sic - election implies honesty), if  it is Romney, Jeb Bush, Hillary or Obama, it will not matter one iota who actually wins or who (in my opinion) will be the next Oval Office Senior Puppet.   The Globalists (unless We The People force Ron Paul in) have achieved "Mission Accomplished"!   The Globalist/Socialist/Communist/One World Government cabal  don't mind having a nice "fair" election -- as long as both "candidates" are owned by them.  How does one tell if a candidate is "Globalist owned"?  Just watch the Idiot Box, Read any newspaper, magazine or 99 of 100 web sites, and you will know.  The Globalist candidate is the one getting the "air time".  Simple.  This is what they have accomplished to date.... like last election, and the one before, and the one before ad nauseam.  But we will continue debating (as The Cabal have prescribed) points of policy and affairs political until the next cycle of confusion begins.  Right now, endless banter continues within the "Tea Party" about the policies of Gingrich, Santorum et al, and who and why is this and that and on and on.   Barf!  So few "get it".  It's as if The One World Cabal has thrown magic dust on the Huddled Masses to cause confusion of basic thought.  I guess that's the power of the Media... who the Globalists lavish praise upon and exclaim "We couldn't have done it without you!"  Barf.  RON PAUL 2012

Mit can only hope the obummer media lets him off that light. the communist organizers spin machine is already loading up the verbal fly paper.

Comment by DURWIN WALTER DAVIS on February 2, 2012 at 8:22am

Imagine when the GENERAL ELECTION begins and the "OCCUPY" crowd starts slinging this at romney.  Of course the "major media" will ignore this about how Hussein Obama gathered his billion dollar war chest; they will push that its natural connection between big corporations, big banks and the GOP.

Comment by DURWIN WALTER DAVIS on February 2, 2012 at 8:17am

Mr. Ken Stump; a couple of excerpts from "wikipedia" as it relates to your mis-understanding of the workings of the fourteenth amendment (doesn't matter if it is correct; follow the money, because money doesn't talk-it swears)...

As a matter of interpretation of the word "person" in the Fourteenth Amendment, U.S. courts have extended certain constitutional protections to corporations.  Opponents of corporate personhood seek to amend the U.S. Constitution to limit these rights to those provided by state law and state constitutions.[2].

The Green Party,[6] the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom,[7] Democracy Unlimited, and former Vice-President Al Gore[8] have objected to the idea of corporate personhood, focusing on constitutional protections—such as the right to contribute to political campaigns—that are granted to corporations. Gore argues that the 1886 Southern Pacific decision entrenched the 'monopolies in commerce' that Thomas Jefferson had wanted to prohibit.[8]

Since the Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission in 2010, upholding the rights of corporations to make political expenditures under the First Amendment, there have been several calls for a US Constitutional amendment to abolish Corporate Personhood.

TW--I hate to break the News to you but, Obama and Romney have a lot in Common. They share the same major Wall Street and Bankster Contributors. Like Obama, Mitt Romney is a wind-up doll for Wall Street and the bankers.  There is virtually no difference between them despite all the fetid air from the GOP propaganda machine. Romney’s Bain Capital owns the “conservative” propaganda machine, Clear Channel. This is revealed by a quick look at Romney’s top contributors. An Open Secrets page on top Romney contributors reads like a Who’s Who of Wall Street and the financial cartel. The top contributor is Goldman Sachs, followed by Credit Suisse Group, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, UBS, Citigroup, Wells Fargo and Barclays – major players in the Wall Street and City of London Bankster constellation. See complete article on this link:

Do you really believe that Mitt Romney will not continue the Banker and Corporate Bailouts? Romney will be just as beholding to them as Obama has proven to be. We the Tax Payers will be expected to foot the bill and everyone will pay for it through inflation.

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…
