Michael P. Leahy was the Tammy Radio guest today and he’s hosting a live webcast tomorrow celebrating the one-year anniversary of the first batch of tea party protests last year. The live webcast is free but there is a charge if you want the archived version later. Click here for more details, but here are the basics from Mike:
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition will honor the 95 founding mothers and fathers of the Tea Party Movement tomorrow on the 1 year anniversary of the first 52 tea party protests held across the country on February 27, 2009. The names of these 95 founding mothers and fathers will be announced at the end of a free live Webcast that will be held tomorrow, Saturday February 27, 2010, from 10 am to 4:30 pm eastern. The Webcast will include highlights of the recent training conference of Leadership Tea Party, held in Dallas, Texas on January 29-31, which consisted of 10 sessions, and included the keynote address by Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com.
Other topics in the Webcast conference include community organizing, dealing with the media, defeating powerful political machines, and protecting members and groups from legal pitfalls.
Nationally renowned presenters include American Liberty Alliance founder Eric Odom; Zen Conservatism author and co-founder of the St. Louis Tea Party Bill Hennessy; attorney Mark Fitzgibbons; Dallas Tea Party leader Lorie Medina; and St. Louis-based radio talk show host Dana Loesch.
The Webcast will be hosted live by Nationwide Tea Party Coalition co-founder Michael Patrick Leahy, author of Rules for Conservative Radicals. Leahy will be joined by other presenters to respond on camera during the Webcast to viewers’ emailed questions. In addition, the Webcast will provide a live report from the Dallas Tea Party in Dallas, Texas, to discover if MSNBC broadcaster Keith Olbermann shows up to accept the Dallas Tea Party’s recent YouTube invitation to attend their tea party celebration of the one year anniversary of the Tea Party Movement.

And speaking of Tea Parties, here’s the information on the burgeoning UK Tea Party movement. They have an event Saturday but as we all know this a long-term effort. Encourage them whenever you can.

With the Advent of -The British “TEA Party” and recent Argentina tensions
Take a moment to remember: Falklands 1982
The HMS Sheffield became the first British ship sunk by enemy action since World War II
For a visceral reminder of what prompted the nationwide spontaneous Tea party watch the following trailers for the upcoming Citizens United* film “Generation Zero”
For different aspects of what the film is about, be sure to watch the following:
Generation Zero “The Abyss”
Generation Zero Movie – 1 Minute Trailer
They’re both by the same youtube account citizensunited07 as the first one, I dont want to give the URLs because that banishes the comment to moderation.
The 3rd video touches on a historical methodology called Generational Dynamics
* Citizens United are the ones who made “Hillary The Movie” and led to the restoration of Free Speech rights in the media.
As you TAMs know, I’d signed up for Dick Durbin’s website (the name I used is Leave Us Alone – note his greating to me…) to see what these a-holes are up to. Today, I received an email wanting me to sign a petition to stop the ability of congress to filibuster. Here’s a portion (um, insert “crying” soundtrack were applicable):
The unprecedented obstructionism in the Senate today forces a rethinking and modernization of the filibuster rule. If you’re as fed up with the filibuster as I am, please sign my petition to fix it today. It’s time to end the filibuster as we know it. The American people are sick of process blocking progress. They’re fed up with an arbitrary tradition that allows a minority of Senators to prevent popular, much-needed legislation from even coming to a vote. They’re exasperated with Republicans’ veiled attempts to kill meaningful reform — pleas for “more time” and “starting from scratch” — which were on full display at yesterday’s White House health care summit.” blah blah blah
Now this cracks me up since they have the majority of, well, everything. Furthermore, the left knows neither the House, nor the Senate are listeinging to ANY voters, so for him to request a petition (pathetic) is really quite astonishing.
