Categorized | ICLEI, News, Tea Party


It’s hard to follow the beautiful and eloquent Sonny Johnson, the fiery Jamie Radtke or the informative and inspirational AG Ken Cuccinelli but somebody had to!  It was me (I also followed a wonderful VCU student who supported Israel but also mentioned the dreaded “scum-bag lawyer” [I knew he did not mean me!]) and I was nervous!  But, I could not let the other patriots and liberty/sovereignty activists around the nation have ALL the FUN fighting ICLEI and UCLG!

I said that “ICLEI is icky and ugly and wants to be the agent for UGLY (UCLG)!”  Laughter turned to concern about ICLEI’s UN relationships and foreign policy goals.  The crowd roared at the description of the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) as “UGLY”!  I explained the Constitution and the Supreme Court forbid states to have a foreign policy.  I called for the mayor and city council of Richmond to simply GET OUT of ICLEI!  Called for TEA Party activists who live in Richmond to go to the council meetings and object until Richmond gets out of ICLEI!  I told the cheering crowd (One was waving and snipping with a huge pair of faux scissors – I feared a mullet for somebody when they hit the mirror this AM!) about how good folks ran for office in Carroll County MD and got elected and GOT OUT of ICLEI and how the activists got Edmond OK out of the thrall of ICLEI through respectful but determined protests.  YOU CAN DO IT!  The crowd went wild at the reports.  I called on AG Cuccinelli to investigate both ICLEI and UCLG to see if they are constitutional!   “Let’s give the globalists a blow they will not soon forget!”  I ended with Ronald Reagan’s benediction:

“God bless you and God bless the United States of America!”  (I had earlier cited Jesus’ command to be a servant and that was my attitude in coming tonight.)

One audience member asked me after the speech if I would come to the VCU Students for Liberty meeting in the fall and speak on ICLEI and Agenda 21!  (I am honored to help SFL any way I can!  I suggested they may be involved in petition drive for Ron Paul in 2012!)  Another said I appealed to the mind and the heart.  A couple more thanked me for bringing up this issue.  I also met Doc Thompson for the first time and AG Cuccinelli, too.  His people took my ICLEI flyer.  Tom White pretended to like my speech!  🙂

All in all a wonderful if a bit nervous evening.  We’ll see if there are photos or video/audio coverage…

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
