Armey of Gun Dicks

armsshot38Dick Armey tried to take over Freedomworks with a gun toting crazy by his side. Dick is a founder of the Tea Party obstructionists who have brought our Democracy to a halt once again.

In 2002 I talked with Ed Fadeley about Armey saying; “This guy’s got to be stopped.”

Ed is a good friend of the Gall family and was a Superior Court Judge and State Senator of Oregon. I have been a guest in the Fadeley home and have gone to some functions with him.

Bill Cornwell and my daughter were supporters of Armey.

Former House majority leader Dick Armey says he took an $8 million consulting deal in return for leaving the conservative organization FreedomWorks because the group was “dishonest” and because he “couldn’t leave with empty pockets.”

The arrangement, he says, will allow him to “never have to work again forever.”

In an interview with ABC News as he was winding down his Wii Fit workout, Armey spoke frankly and at length about his dispute with FreedomWorks, his eyebrow raising consulting contract, and the strategy of the Republican Party.

Armey, 72, was a leader in the 1994 Republican takeover of the House and became House majority leader. He retired from Congress in 2002 and had become a leader of the Tea Party movement in recent years.

Richard K. Armey, the group’s chairman and a former House majority leader, walked into the group’s Capitol Hill offices with his wife, Susan, and an aide holstering a handgun at his waist. The aim was to seize control of the group and expel Armey’s enemies: The gun-wielding assistant escorted FreedomWorks’ top two employees off the premises, while Armey suspended several others who broke down in sobs at the news.

Championing Free Speech

Championing Free Speech would be my top pick for the Grand Cause of
any neo-Templar Order. Consider Molay being burned at the stake.
Today, the accusations raised against the Templars would be protected
by Freedom of Religion and Free Speech – the very thing brave and
armed warriors from the West are attempting to gift the Iraqi people –
against the majority of their collective will!

Before Bush’s crusade got under way, I discussed at length (with ex-
Senator, Edward Fadeley) a cause I was concerned about. Dick Armey
had rushed through a faith-based welfare law that was the first step
in transfering Government Welfare Programs over the church. This is
part of the Christian-right’s attempt to destroy the Federal
Government and install ecclesistical rule – that was inforced by the
Knight Templars. This was the evangelical answer to the Civil Rights
movement and the War on Poverty. Overnight, the evangelical church
would get a big boost of Fed money. However, how would this affect
poor and hungry voters who are getting hand-outs from the church?
Would they feel obligated to vote FOR pro-church politicians unless
their soup lines dry up?

You betcha!

Franklin Graham (and his Crusade) was critisized for encouraging the
start of the Iraqi War so he could move in his Crusaders with tons of
free food and potible water – along with free Bibles! Would neo-
Templars be interested in this kind of Crusade that converts Muslims
to Cristianity under the guise of Charity?

Ed told me he was looking for one great cause before he retired as
Supreme Court Judge. I talked with him about the slander in my late
sister’s biography. He assured me I would get the last word.

n 1960, Fadeley was elected to the Oregon House of Representatives as a Democrat from Eugene.[5] He would serve 26 years in the Oregon Legislature.[4] In 1963, he moved to the Oregon State Senate where he would become Senate President in 1983.[4][6] Beginning in 1971 he would serve several session in the legislature with his wife Nancie Fadeley in the House, who he would later divorce.[3][7] While in the legislature in 1983 he failed in an attempt to amend the Oregon Constitution to prevent any sales tax in the state, but did defeat attempts to pass a sales tax during the session.[2]

In 1986, he ran for Governor, but lost in the primary election to Neil Goldschmidt.[4] In 1988 Fadeley ran for an open seat on the Oregon Supreme Court to fill the position of J. R. Campbell whose term had expired and won on November 8, 1988 against Vern Cook.[4][8] He won re-election to a second six-year term in 1994 before resigning from the court on January 31, 1998.[8]

FreedomWorks originated from a campaign called Citizens for a Sound Economy, which split in two in 2004. CSE was set up by businessman David Koch (Koch Industries).[4] Citizens for a Sound Economy merged with Empower America in 2004 and was renamed FreedomWorks, with Dick Armey, Jack Kemp and C. Boyden Gray serving as co-chairmen, Bill Bennett focusing on school choice as a Senior Fellow, and Matt Kibbe as President and CEO.[5][6][contradiction] Empower America was founded in 1993 by William Bennett, former Secretary of HUD Jack Kemp, former Ambassador Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, and former Representative Vin Weber.[7] In December 2006, Steve Forbes joined the board of directors.[8]

The ‘FreedomWorks’ name was derived from a common Armey saying: “Freedom works. Freedom is good policy and good politics.” [9]

On November 30, 2012, Armey resigned as chairman of FreedomWorks. Armey told Mother Jones, “The top management team of FreedomWorks was taking a direction I thought was unproductive, and I thought it was time to move on with my life.” Armey stipulated that FreedomWorks was to immediately remove his name, image, or signature “from all its letters, print media, postings, web sites, videos, testimonials, endorsements, fund raising materials, and social media.”[10] The Associated Press reported that in September 2012, Armey agreed to resign by November 2012 in exchange for $8 million in consulting fees paid in annual $400,000 installments.[11] Prior to his resignation, Armey was paid $500,000 per year and flew first class, along with other FreedomWorks employees, for work travel.[12][13]

[edit] PersonnelMatt Kibbe is the president and CEO of FreedomWorks. Kibbe’s salary is $320,000 per year. Kibbe’s wife, Terry, is a fundraiser for FreedomWorks.[12]

[edit] ViewsFreedomWorks seeks to identify itself with two schools of thought: the Austrian School[not in citation given] of economics and public choice theory. Through public choice theory, FreedomWorks legitimizes its mission and models itself after the Austrian School.[14]

Kibbe, a former aide to Republican Representative Dan Miller and a former staffer at the Republican National Committee, said that the group “will encourage Republicans — and Democrats — to take positions on issues of individual freedom.” Armey said that “Ronald Reagan launched a political and intellectual revolution, and the Contract with America expanded it. Today, it’s time for the next wave. We have a rare window to make the big ideas of individual ownership and economic opportunity a political reality for all Americans. That’s the purpose of FreedomWorks.”[15]

[edit] Key issuesFreedomWorks views itself as having eight key issues: Budget and Spending; Health Care Reform; Fundamental Tax Reform, Energy and the Environment; Workplace Freedom; School Choice;[16] RedTape, Hidden Taxes, and Regulation, and Medicare, Social Security and Entitlement Reform.[17] According to the FreedomWorks website, Obamacare (The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), is a “multi-trillion-dollar takeover of health care.”[18]

[edit] ActionsIn 2009, FreedomWorks responded to the growing number of Tea party protests across the United States, and became one of several groups active in the “Tea Party” tax protests.[19] Among other activities, FreedomWorks runs boot camps for supporters of Republican candidates. FreedomWorks spent over $10 million on the 2010 elections on campaign paraphernalia alone. The required reading list for new employees includes Saul Alinsky,[20] Frédéric Bastiat and Ayn Rand.[21] Rolling Stone and Talking Points Memo allege that FreedomWorks helps run the Tea Party Patriots.[22][23] Tea Party Patriots denies this claim.[24] According to a 2010 article in the New York Times, FreedomWorks “has done more than any other organization to build the Tea Party movement.”[21]

In the 2010 congressional elections, FreedomWorks endorsed a number of candidates, including Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul.[25] In addition to the aforementioned United States Senate candidates, FreedomWorks endorsed 114 candidates for federal office, of whom seventy won election,[26] an independent study performed by Brigham Young University showed that only FreedomWorks’s endorsement had a statistically significant impact on the success of a candidate in the General Election (U.S.).[clarification needed][27]

In 2011, FreedomWorks ran a number of campaigns targeted at corporate rent-seeking behavior. They campaigned against GE CEO Jeff Immelt who they argue has made GE a rent-seeking corporation.[28] FreedomWorks ran a campaign with the goal of getting Duke Energy to fire their CEO Jim Rodgers, accusing Duke Energy of lobbying for a “progressive agenda” to ensure that the company would receive green energy subsidies.[29]

In addition to their anti-rent seeking campaigns, FreedomWorks has also been active in a number of issue campaigns at the state and national levels. One of these campaigns is the school choice SB1 campaign in Pennsylvania.[30] Additionally, FreedomWorks ran an active grassroots campaign in support of Ohio Governor John Kasich’s union reforms. FreedomWorks delivered thousands of yard signs, door-hangers, handouts, and registered conservative voters.[31]

In 2011, FreedomWorks launched a Super PAC.[32] The stated purpose of this PAC is to “empower the leaderless, decentralized community of the tea party movement as it continues its hostile takeover of the GOP establishment.”[33] FreedomWorks for America endorsed candidates including Don Stenberg, Ted Cruz, Jeff Flake, and Richard Mourdock.[34]

[edit] FundingFreedomWorks is primarily funded by individual donations. According to the progressive media watchdog group Media Matters for America, FreedomWorks has also received funding from Verizon and SBC (now AT&T).[35] Other FreedomWorks donors have included Philip Morris and foundations controlled by the Scaife family, according to tax filings and other records.[36][37] FreedomWorks also receives funding through the sale of insurance policies through which policyholders automatically become members of FreedomWorks.[38]

FreedomWorks is closely tied to its founder, corporate lobbyist and former Republican Congressman Dick Armey, whose former lobbying firm DLA Piper from which he resigned in August 2009, represents Bristol Myers Squibb, among other pharmaceutical companies.[39][40]

[edit] CriticismSome of FreedomWorks’ campaigns have been called “astroturfing”, and some claim that they project a false impression of grassroots organizing.[41][42][43]

On August 14, 2009, after Armey’s leadership of FreedomWorks became a problem to his employer, the lobbying and legal firm of DLA Piper, Armey was forced to resign from his job at DLA Piper. DLA Piper chairman Francis Burch responded that the firm serves clients “… who support enactment of effective health care reform this year and encourages responsible national debate.”[39]

Armey disagreed with FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe’s use of FreedomWorks staff for the research and promotion of Kibbe’s book Hostile Takeover, which according to Armey put FreedomWorks’s tax-exempt status in jeopardy. Armey has stated, “what bothered me most … was that [Kibbe] was asking me to lie, and it was a lie that I thought brought the organization in harm’s way”[44].

Running White-Pulpy Prophets Behind Super Jesus

John Dobson is now fully behind Ol Man McCain. This is apparent in
these ads that depict Obama as a popular cult figure who
has “fruitcake” ideas about American Family Values. Dobson is the
head of Focus on the Family where “creative ways to discipline your
kids” is discussed around the clock. Children are seen as in league
with the enemy, until they have seen the light. Dobson and his kind
view millions of American Voters as unenlightened children who must
be tricked into voting the Republican ticket – for their own good!

When Bush ran for President, the Christian-right carefully concealed
their support for this reformed Bad Boy lest Americans who have not
seen the light get wind of their hidden agendas, vote the Democratic
ticket – and unknowingly reject the Secret Will of Jesus!

Sinners, and Children naturally reject the Will of Jesus, thanks to
Satan, who is a very popular and exceedingly chraming guy. Billions
of folks flock to him – especially in China and Iran. Satan loves to
cast his evil shadow over the Good Ol Boys of God.

The proof of just how cunning and charming Satan is, lies in
candidacy of Gary Bauer, the president of the Family Research Council
from 1988-1999. When he ran for President of the United States, he
did not draw any crowds unto him. In the photo above we see Lil Gary
Pulp-Man cornering a kid sitting on a fence, he going in for the
kill, and a big Jesus-filled hug. The child naturally recoils in
horror because he is full of Satan, and doesn’t know what is good for
him because he has not reached voting age and registered as a
Republican.

Converting the whole world to Replacement Theology – that recalls
Hebrew Family Values – is very important to evangelical prophets.
Here is Dobson’s suggesting how to teach your willful son the facts
of life without talking dirty. I wonder if this is how Joseph taught
Jesus, Ol Joseph taking his pubescent son to the Roman bath house.

“Dobson has plenty of odd ideas, such as urging a father to educate
his son about manhood by showing the kid his penis:

He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy
cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only
bigger. ”

For the first time in American history America gets to vote for or
against Christian Rule now that these White-Pulpy Prophets can no
longer run for office in a Jesus suit – thanks to McCain! Now that
all of America sees these weaklings hiding behind the blazing light
of a Superman and real Superstar, will they flock to the polls like
dirty, disobedient children, and put these Pulp-Things in our
Democratic Limelight? God knows they deserve it – and not Obama!

CNN) – The Bible doesn’t clearly express an opinion on the possession of guns, but many evangelicals defend the unlimited distribution of firearms with the same fervor that they defend biblical orthodoxy. According to a recent Public Religion Research Institute survey, 8% of white evangelical Protestants favor tighter gun laws.
But in the wake of yet another deadly school shooting, it’s time for evangelicals to contribute to the national discussion beyond: “It’s not guns that kill people, it’s people that kill people.”
In fairness to gun enthusiasts, no reasonable observer could pin the blame for the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting solely on the lack of effective gun laws. Even President Barack Obama and other influential voices have called for a balanced approach that looks not only at guns but also at mental illness, violent video games and a culture of fatherlessness that produces young troubled men. And the research about the effectiveness of gun controls laws seems mixed at best.
Still evangelicals should not defend the use, proliferation and availability of assault weapons with as much vigor as they defend their faith. In spite of some who insist the Second Amendment is drawn from the Bible, there is no clear-cut Christian position on gun control.
