"Unity '09": Have You Heard About It?

"Stand Up For Marriage Rally" tomorrow on the steps of the Capitol in Olympia. Noon to 1 PM.

Based on the numbers of email I am receiving from around the state, we should have a good turnout. I'm looking forward to seeing you. Thank you for taking a stand. I'm told the other side is trying to organize a group to be there as well. We'll see. They had 250 out to their own rally on the steps last week. Be prepared.

Likely you have not heard about "Unity '09". But you should be aware of it.

It should be a call to action for all people of faith and conservatives.

Conceived at a New York meeting just before the November election, two Democrats who are familiar with the planning, have told POLITICO that "Unity '09" was conceived to draw together money and grassroots organizations to pressure lawmakers in their home states to back White House legislation and other so-called "progressive" causes.

The far left, as you can imagine, is giddy about the prospects of ramming Obama's far left policies through even some of the more moderate lawmakers. So far the new organization has been secretive and stayed off the radar.

They have already had some success, with more of the same planned. Many of the participants are so far left they are off the page.

MoveOn.org is a central player, but other groups are involved, including a broad spectrum of interests---all far left. Groups forming under the "Unity '09" umbrella include, ACLU, the National Council of LaRaza, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, Media Matters America, various labor unions, environmental groups and Health Care for America Now.

Consultant Paul Begala said, "When progressive activists are working in concert and the right is forming a circular firing squad, you know it's a new day."

The Obama people swear they are not directly involved in this, and they are probably not. They don't need to be. President Obama is a dream come true for the far left.

The original "Progressive Media" group is also involved and is used to coordinate the far left group's messages and their attacks on Republicans and conservatives.

The group's 8:45 AM daily conference call has so far helped bring groups like the League of Conservation Voters into the effort to cast Rush Limbaugh as the leader of the Republican Party. Michael Steele, as you know, was a useful tool with his unwise comments about Limbaugh, abortion and other issues.

Politico says they have also coordinated attacks on two leading critics of Obama's health care plans.

Bill O'Reilly told Politico, "This, ladies and gentlemen, is a threat to America."

It is not an overstatement to say America stands on the threshold of disaster if we continue on our present track.

Obama is writing checks to AIG, while AIG writes checks to those who bankrupted AIG, rewarding them for their performance. And Obama is defending his actions while the secret "Unity '09" works the other side of the street, helping everyone to understand that we are on our way to recovery and prosperity.

And "Unity '09" will be there for him as he signs the so-called "Freedom of Choice Act" removing all restrictions on abortions and while he repeals DOMA, redefining marriage and the family.

If this is not a call to action, what will it take?

God bless you for heeding the call.

  2. It's intersting that when we disagree with the secular, far left agenda we are ignorant and hateful.

  3. Ah but is it the mere disagreement or that you are trying to make others act as YOU want them to rather than letting each choose for themselves.

    Take all this abortion nonsense - it doesn't matter how easy it is to get one if the individual CHOOSES not to have one. No one wants anyone to have an abortion but there are those that want the choice left up to the individual and those who try and remove the opportunity of choice from them.

    But I do applaud Gary for allowing dissent unlike others out there. Just got an email from Tony Perkins misrepresenting the 'charging private health insurance for veterans' proposition.

    Look at what he says first he says:

    The president has proposed a plan that will force veterans to pay for their own treatment of injuries and disabilities resulting from military service to help fund his massive expansion of government spending.

    So he is going to charge the veterans?!! That's horrible!!! But wait, the next sentence is:

    Under the plan, the Department of Veterans Affairs would generate revenue by billing veterans' private health insurance providers.

    Wait a second, isn't that what the VA already does? When I go up to the VA there are signs all over the place asking you to give them your private insurance information so they can bill for your care at the VA. And when you get care the VA takes what they get from the private insurance and don't charge the veteran a dime!

    But Tony "almost every word out of my mouth is a lie" Perkins doesn't care about the truth or what the proposition really is, doesn't allow comment on his words because he knows, he's lying.

    At least Gary actually believes what he says even if I do think much of it is misguided.

  4. " Michael Steele, as you know, was a useful tool with his unwise comments about Limbaugh, abortion and other issues."

    It is statements like this, and the politburo-esque apology Steele issued that reveal to the rest of America that Limbaugh is indeed the leader of the Republican party, beyond reproach.

    What I find truly nefarious is the attempts of Gary and other right-wing demagogues to paint the simple act of participation in our Democratic government as some sort of threat to the country. Other than being on the right side of issues, this group is no different than the various right-wing groups that co-ordinate their political activity. Heck, during the last administration we had the White House itself taking part in regular conference calls with right-wing hate radio hosts, and Christianist activist groups, though I doubt our Gary was a big enough fish to be included.

  5. "Obama is writing checks to AIG, while AIG writes checks to those who bankrupted AIG, rewarding them for their performance."

    Rewriting history in real time now? It was the Bush Administration, which unilaterally without Congressional input, made the vast majority of payments to AIG, and failed to do the required due diligence to assure that this money was not simply handed out in bonuses. So this is just yet another mess that the Republican part left for Obama to clean up. Meanwhile those same Republicans, who fiddled Rome burned, and who howled in outrage with cries of "socialism" when Obama attempted to put a cap on executive compensation at these bailed out companies, will make false accusations of a some sort of quid-pro-quo. How sad and pathetic Republicans have become. Such small petty, bitter people, attempting to paint simple political participation by their opponents as some sort of threat to democracy.

  6. "No one wants anyone to have an abortion "

    Are you disagreeing or trying to get everyone to fund medical procedures you support ?

    Well thats a hoot of a statement , especially in the same posting you are accusing Perkins of being the liar . Could it be that something is lost in the communication or your ability in discerning the truth ? Because many people do promote this abortion nonsense , not an educational choice . If education was important , you would see Planned Parenthood advocating ultra sounds , its harder to get a dentist appointment then an abortion .

    Interesting 40 percent of children are born out of wedlock now in this country . The abortion mantra of it keeping unwanted children is quite lame , or is about choice ?
    Seems facts are unimportant to many people .

    The VA charges Blue Cross for the treatment vets received during service to this country ? Injuries you received in war ?

  8. "It's intersting that when we disagree with the secular, far left agenda we are ignorant and hateful."

    Is a coversation stopper . ;o) But you got to hand to the left for political smartness. The calculated compassion and concern they have for supporting and respecting people , Campaigns against bullying , all are geared only to the people they politically support , not all people . The right gets me with religious dogma that does the same . But the left gets the middle folks in increasingly amounts on gay issues . My name is Mick by the way , use to be a dedicated republican , I gave up myself , not even sure if any real conservatives are involved in the leadership of the GOP anymore . Hard to tell. But have not really seen any big party push against gay marriage , just like the democrats they don't see it as an issue in this state that gains them power or votes from anywhere but where they already get those those votes . .

  9. The VA charges Blue Cross for the treatment vets received during service to this country ? Injuries you received in war ?

    Well if Blue Cross is your private insurance firm, yeah. If you haven't already given them your private insurance information that ask you if you have it with every single office visit, hospitalization, and annually when they do the records check, they've been doing it for years.

    In the mail you get the forms from your insurance where the VA has charged some incredible amount, the insurance company pays some part of it and the VA just writes off the rest.

    I mean makes sense, its just a hospital providing service and charging the patient's insurance for it. In fact I've wondered what the difference is with what Obama's proposing - mandatory? Just looking ahead to when there is universal health care? As it is if you've got insurance they will get it even if its just by badgering you to submission.

    No I'm just saying that everyone would prefer they avoid having to get one in the first place.

    Doh.

  11. "At least Gary actually believes what he says"

    Wow that is a frightening thought. Given that what Gary says shows now unchanging principles, but differs wildly given the current political situation.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ah my mistake - although they currently get insurance information for everyone they don't charge for most war related expenses (probably just some billing codes they don't use).

    The problem with billing for everything is that many vets can only get private insurance because the carriers know they won't be billed for the service-related injuries. With this information he said today that the program is off the table.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oshtur , wow almost a concession of mis stated facts , which they were , by you. No billing codes is ot the problem , when Americans defend this country , you or anyone , we as a nation owe you the best medical care for any injuries in that conflict you received . It was not just Tony Perkins who was bringing this out , many people have . Tony Perkins is very vocal on same sex marriage , which i guess makes him a target for anything . He was just repeating what cosevatives have been pointing out that socialized medical care does .

    The point if I was debating on your side would have been yes sometimes we have to realize things will change , and not always for the better with sociialized medicine , but i the end , no one will be turned away .

    But thats the point . Some people see it as inconvenience out of their daily day just to have to get that abortion . Thats the importance many abortion providers and pro choicers give it .

    dohgusting

    Mick, they would get the exact same care no matter who paid for it, right? The reasonable issue was that it would make it difficult for veterans to get private insurance if they did it for war related injuries. Actually I think they do slide a bit - my husband was military disabled and looking back on his insurance payments at least some of them were being billed (no way to tell what might not be being billed).
