A Star Is Born: Tito “The Builder” Munoz’s Full Speech at the 9/12 March on Washington

I linked to this video in the last post, but I don’t want anyone to go away without watching this impassioned (legal) immigrant defend liberty. I didn’t get the full impact while I was at the rally, because I was busy walking around and taking pictures.

Good God, this is  red meat:

“America doesn’t bow down to anyone!”

Tito the Builder became renowned in 2008 when he publicly  defended Joe the Plumber.

According to Wikipedia:

Tito Muñoz, also known as “Tito the Builder”, received substantial media attention for various campaign activities. Muñoz publicly defended Joe Wurzelbacher in front of the media. Muñoz has also campaigned with Sarah Palin.[321] Consequently, Tito Muñoz has received substantial media attention.[322] Muñoz, a Colombian immigrant, is presently a small construction company owner[323] and a United States citizen.[324] He became known for wearing a yellow hard hat with a McCain-Palin bumper sticker[325] and an orange reflector jacket, as well as appearing on television wearing sunglasses.[326] when he attended a campaign rally for John McCain in Leesburg, Virginia.[327] At the rally, he introduced Sarah Palin. He also had a confrontation with reporters.[328] Will Rabbe, of the Independent Film Channel, has posted a video about Muñoz and his interaction with reporters.[329] Five days before the election, Muñoz appeared on Fox NewsHannity & Colmes.[330] Muñoz told Alan Colmes that he became involved in the 2008 presidential election by giving newspapers “hiding the truth about Obama” a piece of his mind.[331]

How come an immigrant who’d lived here less than 10 years, could see through the outrageous fraud that was Obama,  but over half the country was fooled?

Just to take a trip down memory lane, here’s his appearance on Hannity and Colmes, October 2008:

Two years later who looks like the sap, and who was dead on right about everything?

Video: MA-3 Candidate Mike Stopa on Term Limits

It’s do or die time for Mike Stopa, MA-3. The primary election is this Tuesday, September 14.

On September 7th,  the Northboro Tea Party, Marlboro Tea Party , Worcester Tea Party and Seven Hills Tea Party held a debate between the primary candidates. Stopa took a question on term limits:

He has a PhD in Physics and is currently at Harvard where he specializes in nano technology and computational physics. He lives in Holliston Massachusetts with his wife Hiromi and their four children.

Rob Eno of Red Mass recently endorsed Mike Stopa:

Representative in Congress:  None of the candidates for the 3rd Congressional district have raised in my estimation the kind of cash needed to mount a credible challenge to Jim McGovern.  Yes this is a wave election, but in order to ride the wave you need to at least bring a surf-board.  Normally in a race like this where all of the candidates are personally likeable, and hold the same core beliefs as I do, I’d be pragmatic and vote for the one who has raised the most money and run the best campaign.  None of these gentlemen stand out in that regard, it has been tough for any of them to raise the money and absent personal wealth, none have been able ot self finance. These facts allow me to then pick the person amongst the five whom I most identify with, from an intellectual standpoint. In this race that person is Mike Stopa.  He is by all accounts far and away the person with the best grasp of the issues.  I’ve seen him talk extemporaneously on a whole host of issues.  He is the most ready to be a congressman on day one.

Stopa also got an endorsement from Legal Insurrection’s Professor Jacobson:

Whoever runs against incumbent Democrat Jim McGovern will need a grasp not only of the issues, but the smarts and energy to take on this entrenched incumbent.  Stopa has both.

I previously highlighted Stopa’s study of the issue of how to repeal Obamacare, The Massachusetts Model For Dismantling Obamacare.  In addition, some video clips of Stopa’s recent debate performance are here.

I’ve previously shed light on Stopa’s main competition in the primary, Marty Lamb, who has in recent years, donated to Democrats, Tom Daschle and Ed Markey.

Video: 9/12 Taxpayer March on Washington, 2010

The DC 9/12 march began at 10:00am with a non-denominational service at the Washington Monument, led by Reverend C.L. Bryant. The march began at 12 noon, and headed down Pennsylvania Avenue to the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
Here’s a compilation of the video I took:

Yeesh, sorry about the camera work – new camera. Didn’t like.


The 9/12 March On Washington, 2010

Photo via Freedomworks

On Sunday, FreedomWorks held its second annual  9/12 March on Washington.  Speakers at the rally, this year focused on the Contract FROM America, a plan FreedomWorks has been asking politicians to sign and pledge to follow.

The forecast said rain, but the most it did was light drizzle and misting. By the end of the rally, the sun was trying to break through the clouds.

FreedomWorks President and CEO Matt Kibbe estimated the crowd size at around 100,000 Tea Partiers, a crowd smaller than last year’s march, something he said may be partly attributable to the fact several 9/12 rallies were going on simultaneously nationwide and that Fox News personality Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally was held in Washington at the end of August.
Gateway Pundit has this report on the St. Louis 9/12 tea party, which attracted approximately 14,000.
The DC march began at 10:00am with a non-denominational service at the Washington Monument, led by Reverend C.L. Bryant. The march began at 12 noon, and headed down Pennsylvania Avenue to the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
I took tons of pictures and videos during  the DC march, and later at the rally, focusing  on the signs because I love them so much.
Videos soon to come.

BlogCon Day 3

Saturday was much less structured than the tightly scheduled day before. We were allowed to sleep in after the whirlwind of activity on Friday.

A few of us women were invited to a screening of the new Citizens United film, Fire In The Heartland, a film about the women behind the tea party movement, which I’ll be writing more about, later.

Citizen’s United filmmaker, Steve Bannon introducing the film.

The Citizens United offices are located in a beautiful DC row house. Alexa Shrugged gave us a grand tour:

After the screening, a we went to the Freedomworks building to work on signs, and meet Dick Army, who was signing his new book, (co-written by Matt Kibbe) Give Us Liberty.

ND, Dick Armey

Cheryl Prater, Steve Green (VodkaPundit), and I decided to go out for some drinks and a bite to eat. I’d like to take the opportunity now, to say that VodkaPundit is aptly named. The man drank prodigious amounts of vodka, both at the restaurant, and later on at the hotel lounge, which is where everyone ended up, Saturday night:

The next three photos are swiped from the Cranky Hermit because I neglected to get pix of some of these amazing bloggers.

When the bar stopped serving drinks, we  resorted to this.

As Iowahawk quipped – “summary of #blogcon: people in favor of limited government aren’t big fans of limited drinking”.

I resisted the temptation to finish out the night at the Kruiser Kabana. Nice Deb needed sleep.
