Tour embed Andrea Shea King has some early morning thoughts on the MSM's attempt at "controlling the narrative" when it comes to the Tea Party movement. This is an opportunity for all bloggers--big and small--to surpass the MSM's coverage of this grassroots, American movement toward smaller, less intrusive government, and one that operates according to OUR constitution.
And what am I doing back here in Northern California? Well, just hangin' out in the woods with my flag, about to head on down the path to Freedom with Tea Party Express III... **TONIGHT: The Andrea Shea King Show from Colorado--9 pm et.
TEA PARTY EXPRESS III: PROVO, SALT LAKE CITY EDITION--**UPDATED**
The Tea Party Express III will be at rallies in Provo and Salt Lake City today--10:00 am and 2:00 pm. Remember, if you can't attend in person, then tune to Tea Party Express TV and be part of the action. Trust me, the White House will be!
Technology is a big part of TPXIII, allowing organizers and supporters to reach as many people as possible, and this is where Tea Party Express TV comes in.
Unless you're an embed on the tour, there is no way to attend all the rallies. But with TPX TV, you can attend "live" via your computer. Last night I watched the Flagstaff rally from right here in Northern California.
SO HERE'S THE DEAL: Head over to the Tea Party Express III site. On the menu bar at the top, hit TPX TV, sign up, bookmark, check the schedule, and you will be able to invite your friends and family to the next TPX rally via your computer. And when the tour comes to your area, be there--bring someone along too.
TPX TV was developed by William and Selena Owens. It's one of the best additions ever for the tour. In addition to TV, Wm and Selena produce the beautiful TPX III commemorative journal pictured above. Check out both at TPX TV--you'll be glad you did!
ACTOR CRAIG T. NELSON ABOUT TO GO THROUGH IRS AUDIT FOR THE NEXT 10 OR 20 YEARS
During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Nelson mentioned two words the IRS doesn't want you to consider, let alone think about: tax revolt. Nelson mentions the subject in a somewhat funny, tongue-in-cheek kinda way, but he knows everyone's thinking the same thing. Of course, this would never happen on a grand scale, at least I don't think it would. Imagine, though, what an attention getter it would be if it did happen.
DAY ONE: ANDREA SHEA KING SHOW--SEARCHLIGHT, NEVADA
After a long day of travel on Friday and an even longer day of Tea Party rallying in Searchlight, Nevada, Andrea Shea King did a show this evening as the Tea Party Express III buses were pulling into Henderson, Nevada, for the day's second rally.
Andrea gave us some details of the day, but because of time constraints couldn't give a full accounting of the day's events. But what a day it was! Andrea did the show "live" from on board one of the Tea Party Express III buses, included were interviews with people who were invited speakers as well as tour embeds. A great day for America. Harry Reid, not so much.
Health Insurance Reform is now law. We lost this battle, but not the war. There's plenty of fighting to do in the future, and just voting will not be enough to stave off the enslavement of America. From this day forward, we must be involved at all levels--local, state and national. With technology at our fingertips, we can work and be effective at all three.
Besides candidates in my local and statewide races, I'll be supporting someone outside my state: LTC Allen West (Ret). He's running for Florida's 22nd Congressional District. Why am I doing this? Easy. We need proven leadership in congress, and LTC Allen West defines leadership. And, as we learned this past week, each person in congress has a direct impact on all our lives. Bart Stupak, anyone? Stupak is a coward, a weakling and a self-serving fraud. Don't you think we already have enough of these types in Washington? I do. I encourage you to support LTC West for Congress. Go to his site and learn more about him. Do your own research as well. Technology puts us all in the same community, so do what you can to reach out and support LTC West, and others like him. To win this war, we'll need quality leadership, proven leadership.Policy wonks need not apply. ALLEN WEST FOR CONGRESSFollow him on TWITTER Over 2,000,000 views:
You know, each election cycle the absentee ballots of our uniformed men and women never seem to make it back here in time to make a difference. It happens every cycle. Citizens complain, congress throws out a few nominal sound bites. Nothing changes. Zip. Andrea Shea King--The Radio Patriot--is ahead of the curve on this problem. I suggest you follow her lead. You know what to do. ****
Tea Party Express III begins holding court this Saturday in Searchlight, Nevada--SHOWDOWN IN SEARCHLIGHT. TPXIII organizers are working around the clock, making sure every last detail has their attention. And there are many details, some big, some small.
One BIG detail is funding. It costs TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS to organize and run the tour coast-to-coast. $30,000 is all that's left to complete the funding goal for this tour. With your help, we can knock that out in a day or so.
Please DONATE what you can so the organizers can focus their attention elsewhere. And be sure to send this notice out on your email lists. For those in congress, $30,000 is tip money; to us, it's everything. Thank you.

EVANSTON, ILLINOIS--HEALTH CARE PROTEST SHOWS THE LEVEL OF IGNORANCE WE'RE UP AGAINST
Big Government contributor Andrew Marcus documented the protest rally held outside Rep. Jan Schakowsky's office in Evanston, Illinois. Friday's turnout was small but the ignorance on display was monumental. "What's wrong with a little socialism?"
Morton Grove's John Ruberry--Marathon Pundit--was in attendance. Schakowsky is Ruberry's rep in congress, and he's interviewed as well. Good job, John!
Before we experience the "fundamental transformation of the United State of America" this weekend, let's have some fun--while we still can--watching The Ross Sisters performing "Solid Potato Salad" from 1944. Hat tip: Joe Chez of Northern California, AKA Bluff-a-lo Joe.
"ANDREA SHEA KING SHOW" EMBEDS WITH TEA PARTY EXPRESS III
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 8, 2010
ANDREA SHEA KING JOINS TEA PARTY EXPRESS III
FROM SEARCHLIGHT, NV TO WASHINGTON, D. C.
MARCH 27 - APRIL 15
The Tea Party Express is pleased to announce that conservative leader Andrea Shea King will be joining the Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out national tour.
"I am delighted to be part of this historic national tour, and look forward to meeting and writing about the good people of America from Searchlight, Nevada all the way to "the scene of the crime," Washington DC. Join us along the way as we make this journey one for the history books!" - Andrea Shea King
The Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out Tour kicks off March 27th with the "Showdown in Searchlight" - a mega-sized tea party rally in Senate Marjority Leader Harry Reid's hometown of Searchlight, NV (population: 700). Joining Ms. King at the rally will be Gov. Sarah Palin, Joe The Plumber, Saturday Night Live's Victoria Jackson, nationally syndicated radio host, Roger Hedgecock, conservative commentator and columnist, Andrew Breitbart, and many others.
Andrea Shea King has increasingly become one of the most relevant voices in the conservative movement. Besides the radio shows which have gained her such a loyal following, she is also a columnist for numerous conservative publications, and publishes her own blog. Most importantly, Andrea is a citizen-activist first. She was there in support of the first round of tea parties in 2009. She joined up with Tea Party Express II when it concluded it's national tour in Orlando, Florida.
And now Andrea Shea King will cross the nation with Tea Party Express III speaking at rallies, and reporting her experiences, and relaying the words and voices of countless Americans at these rallies, to her radio and print audiences.
"We are truly honored to have Andrea joining us for the entire tour - from the March 27th 'Showdown in Searchlight' kickoff to the grand finale 'Tax Day Tea Party' in Washington D.C. on April 15th. Andrea Shea King has earned tremendous respect from many within the conservative community and tea party movement because she takes real action as a citizen-patriot," said Levi Russell, Communications Director for the Tea Party Express.
Earlier in the week, Kuhner was a guest on The Andrea Shea King Show--archive here. When it comes to his opinion of Obama, Kuhner doesn't mince words--he hits the audience with cold, hard facts about Obama, his past, his inner circle and what's in store for America if Obama and the progressives continue to hold power.

THANKS, MR. B--IT ALL BEGINS IN SEARCHLIGHT, NEVADA, MARCH 27
Just a little something for Mr. B in appreciation for his generous support of THE TEA PARTY EXPRESS III. Mr. B is "present and accounted for" when it comes to supporting this historic effort. Join him in formation as we take back America one city at a time. History is being made--be part of it. Donate something, anything.

LAS VEGAS "WINS", DETROIT "PLACES", ATLANTA "SHOWS"
Later this month (March 27), the Tea Party Express III will begin its cross-country tour at Searchlight, Nevada, home of Harry Reid. This is by design and for good reason. Reid, the third tentacle of the progressive hydra, is in the midst of a perfect political storm, a storm he will likely not survive. This political fact-of-life is not lost on the organizers of the Tea Party Express, either.Thousands will attend the Searchlight whistle stop, including Governor Sarah Palin.
Outside of storing nuclear waste, some mining and a smattering of military installations, Nevada doesn't have much in terms of an industrial base. However, Nevada does possess something no other state or nation can match: Las Vegas--the entertainment capitol of the world. Las Vegas is Nevada's economic engine, and it has a long reach in terms of economic activity. The world, to put it simply, is Vegas' market base. If life were found on another planet, they too would soon be booking flights bound for Vegas.
As we're discovering, even Nevada's economic crown jewel is not immune from the recession/depression. Business is cyclical. But, add to the mix Obama's admonishment to stay away from Las Vegas, coupled with Harry Reid's silence on the matter, and what you have is an economic disaster playing out right in front of not only Nevada's eyes, but the nation's: From Forbes:
"Las Vegas edged Detroit for the title of America's most abandoned city. Atlanta came in third, followed by Greensboro, N.C., and Dayton, Ohio. Our rankings, a combination of rental and homeowner vacancy rates for the 75 largest metropolitan statistical areas in the country, are based on fourth-quarter data released Feb. 3 by the Census Bureau. Each was ranked on rental vacancies and housing vacancies; the final ranking is an average of the two."
"America's most abandoned city"--Yes, you read that correctly. Because of the progressive hydra, the people of Las Vegas are left with no other choice but to search elsewhere for better employment opportunities. If you read the Forbes piece, you will get a perspective from investors who took the risks. Risks that created job opportunities for workers to make a good living. A living used to raise their families, educate their children. And remember, these capital investment outlays didn't come from government provided programs; they came from smart, hard working business people who earned those investment dollars on their own.
Business people and working people have one important thing in common: they vote. And vote they will.
As Las Vegas goes, so goes Nevada. As Nevada goes, so goes Harry Reid.
Support the Tea Party Express III. Don't think about it, do it. It's important, patriotic work and it costs lots of money. These tours are made possible only by your generosity. Send something, anything.
