"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. 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.
