Special Report Proves NAFTA Super highway Threat

+ +
>From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, President



I've just seen Lou Dobbs' special report on the NAU and NAFTA
super highway, and I'm urging every member of our team to
watch his report that literally blows the lid off suggestions
that this is all "scare tactics" and "myths."

Click here to see the video:

White house press release on NAFTA and SPP

++ Sound the Alarm with Grassfire

Scott, we can't count on most media outlets or elected
officials to tell us the truth about this very real and
growing threat to our nation's sovereignty and security.

Over the next week, I'd like to add an additional 25,000
citizen petitions to our total--pushing us past the quarter-
million mark!

The NAU and NAFTA Super highway isn't hype, or myth as many suggest.
This is a carefully coordinated plan being executed under the noses
of unsuspecting American citizens, and it is up to you and I to
start sounding the alarm!

As always, thank you for standing with Grassfire.

The Left wants to silence conservatives

I just signed a petition opposing the so-called "Fairness Doctrine" and
similar efforts to silence conservative leaders like Rush Limbaugh, Mark
Levin and Sean Hannity.

Liberal leaders are blocking an effort to protect the rights of conservatives.

Energy Independence and other issues.

The reason you are paying over $4 a gallon for gas and our other energy costs are going through the roof is Congress! It isn't George Bush's fault, it is no coincidence that since the liberal Democrats took over both the House and Senate that our gas prices have almost doubled since. Also our economy has been going down because they have been down taking it down since Bush was elected president and they accused him of talking down the economy when he pointed out the problems cause by 8 years of the Clintons and the largest tax increase in history they brought us when he was running for office.
If you think the economy is bad now elect Obama and see what happens.. From what I hear from him "change" is to raise the taxes on everything! If you are barely getting by now wait until he raises taxes on energy, income, social security, medicare and then passes socialized medical care. It will totally collapse our economy. The reason medical care is so expensive is government has mandated hospitals give treatment to everyone who can't or don't want to pay for it, including millions of illegals which has about bankrupted the emergency rooms here in Arizona and forced the closer of a couple of them. They mandate what doctors will get for medicare which isn't enough. This forces doctors and hospitals to pass on these unmet expenses to us in order to stay in business. My 90 year old grand parents just had to be moved out of the long term hospital care because the hospital wasn't getting enough from medicare to keep the unit open and was loosing millions of dollars a year. There isn't ONE damn thing the federal government does right or well and you want to put them in charge of your medical care??? Look what they have done with social insecurity and medicare! There isn't anything the government can give you that they didn't take away from you or someone else in the first place and the vast majority of people get back far less than is taken from them. There isn't the constitutional authority to do most of what they are doing in the first place and the things they should be doing like protecting our boarders they are not doing.
The only people who pay taxes are the end consumer of the product or service that is taxed. If you raise the taxes on the "evil oil companies" they have to pass on the increased cost of business to the people who buy their products. If they didn't they would eventually go out of business. You can not sell products for what they cost to make or less and make a profit that keeps your business operating. If you have a 401K or other retirement or investing plan you own a portion of oil and other business, if the business in your portfolio aren't making a profit, neither are you on your investments. Anything government does to affect their profits affects YOU! If you think you are under taxed you are an idiot.

Back to energy, this is what I started to write about (I could rant about the problems with our government all day..) This is an excerpt from Glenn Beck's website that was in his email news letter tonight. Glenn is about the only one on TV (CNN afternoons) that is telling it like it is. I don't care for his radio show much but you HAVE TO WATCH HIS TV SHOW!! Thank God for PVR's (hard drive based VCR with out the Video tape, I do have full time 48+ hour job) He is talking to Representative Chris Cannon from Utah's 3rd congressional district.


Glenn Beck: Oil shale the answer?

"GLENN: All right. So what is the -- your bill takes all of the burden out of congress and puts it on the President's desk?

CONGRESSMAN CANNON: Well, yeah. He is the executive and what it does is it gives him the ability to cut through seven years and make that seven weeks and so you sit down and you say, what do we need to do to protect the environment and what's the process we're going to use. And there are various processes that are very different and they are going to have different constraints. But then you give the President the authority to come to a conclusion and give a permit in a short time and then you monitor, see what's going on. You may have to adjust that permit over time but at least you get people producing oil.
'' " "..

GLENN: Yet the will in congress is not. I've got a guy here who's been waiting for a while to talk on the air and I'm going to put him on the air. His question is don't you think that congress is intentionally trying to sabotage our economy for the election. Give me a reason here, Chris, why congress is doing the things that they're doing. Why are they doing this? This is not in our economic long-term health by any stretch of the imagination to keep us shackled to terror states.

CONGRESSMAN CANNON: Yes, Saudi Arabia funding Al-Qaeda, Iran funding Hezbollah, Hamas. Human events had an article two weeks ago about an Iranian funded terrorist camp in the Venezuela. You know, we're paying these people to undermine our interests and we're propping up a --

GLENN: So what is stopping the congress? What is the motivation of congress to not free our hands?

CONGRESSMAN CANNON: Well, if you look at the numbers, they're fascinating. The bulk of Republicans will vote to drill in ANWR, to drill in the continent she will, to drill in the Midwest to drill for shale. About 90%, in some cases a little more, a little less of Democrats vote against that and with the reps cans who vote against this and the Democrats who vote against this, we've not been able to get those things passed. We passed the right -- there's a prohibition against drilling in the Alaskan national wildlife preserve but we have to overcome what's positive law. We passed that in the House a couple of times and the Senate actually passed it as well but the times we passed it in the House and the Senate didn't pass it, then we had problems with a potential candidate being the critical vote there. So we have to get -- the American people have got to express themselves on this issue and we're about to put up a website called I think it's up yet but we want the American people to be saying we want a dollar, a dollar and a quarter gas. That's where it ought to be. And if we were producing our own gas, our own oil out of our own resource here in America, one, we would have cheaper gas. And two, we wouldn't be funding our enemies.

GLENN: Chris Cannon from the great state of Utah. Thank you very much. We'll look at the bill. What is the bill number?

CONGRESSMAN CANNON: Oh, it's -- I think it's 6811, but I apologize."

Here is some thing you can do to encourage congress to quit screwing around and do something about our ever increasing energy costs.

the Affordable Gas Price Act

I've been meaning to write about this lately, the following email from I got is correct. The reason gas prices are so high is speculators, demand has driven the price of a barrel of crude oil way up and our damn government. If anyone is making a killing on oil it is the people supply the crude and Government! How come we have falling bridges and crappy roads when they are taxing us so much on fuel and our cars?

Last night one of my local news casts broke down the costs per dollar of gas.

75¢ Crude oil
17¢ Taxes
13¢ Distribution
5¢ Local gas stations

Obviously these are averages as some states have higher taxes and some gas stations make more. I don't understand why anyone would think electing more democrats to office will do anything but further raise gas prices and ruin our economy. They ran saying they would lower energy costs and they have instead nearly doubled since they have taken control of Congress. It is no wonder since they oppose any use of domestic crude. WE have proven reserves in Alaska, the Rocky Mountains in the form of oil shell and in the Gulf coast. They say we can't drill off our coast so Cuba and China are doing it and reaping the rewards!

A couple of weeks ago a friend sent me a long email about India using compressed cars, I quoted this line and answered below

What an idea! Compressed air will provide the needed energy to drive these Cars.

But where do you get the energy to compress the air? Same with electric cars, or convert water to hydrogen? I've yet to see an "alt fuels" idea that will fix the problems we have. Especially when electric companies are asking us to cut usage by using CFL's and turning up our AC. Power and Water are about the only industries that ask us to cut back instead of producing more to meet demand which would be more profits for them. Water I understand why, but why aren't we building our electric grid bigger? Why is China and Cuba drilling for Oil in the gulf but we can't? If you want cheaper energy don't vote for Democrats! If you want a better economy vote the tax and spenders out of office.
I will also add to that converting food to fuel is driving up the cost of food. It's great for the corn farmers but it bad for the rest of us and is causing corn shortages for food world wide. It is a stupid idea and is not sustainable on a large scale.

This CONSERVATIVE ALERT is a special message from

Congress is Refusing to Consider Bill to Bring Gas Prices Down -- Click Below to Tell YOUR Rep. to Co-Sponsor the Affordable Gas Price Act:

ALERT: Well, gas has finally hit over four dollars a gallon where I live. And it doesn't look like these rising prices are going to slow down any time soon.

If this keeps up, the American economy will be devastated.

So what does Congress do about this crisis? One group blames OPEC and Venezuela, calling for us to "fight back" against them -- which will only lead to retaliation and higher prices. Another group blames the oil companies, calling for a massive "windfall profits" tax hike on them -- which will only be passed on to consumers and lead to higher prices. Still other groups blame Americans themselves, and call for extreme restrictive conservation measures to be mandated on "oil-hungry" citizens.

And nothing gets done. And gas prices keep shooting up.

Plus, these big government solutions will, at best, prove ineffective and, at worst, bring back the fuel shortages and gas lines of the seventies.

Over a year ago, legislation was introduced that would not only counter the extreme environmentalism of the liberals, it would also counter the government's own inflationary monetary policies that have led directly to the crisis we're facing today.

That's right. As usual, the government doesn't have a solution to the problem -- the government IS the problem!

House bill H.R. 2415, short-titled the "Affordable Gas Price Act," was introduced on May 21, 2007. The official title of the bill states its purpose:

"To reduce the price of gasoline by allowing for offshore drilling, eliminating Federal obstacles to constructing refineries and providing incentives for investment in refineries, suspending Federal fuel taxes when gasoline prices reach a benchmark amount, and promoting free trade."

So for over a year now, Congress has had available to them legislation that reduces gas prices by reforming government polices that artificially inflate the price of gas.

And not one of them has even had the guts to sign on as a co-sponsor.

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS. It's time our "representatives" are FORCED to stand up and do the right thing, instead of posturing and posing for the cameras while the rest of us are struggling to decide between eating and putting gas in the tank.

So WE need to do the FORCING!

TAKE ACTION: We don't need more "big government solutions" -- we need common-sense solutions that will bring back sanity to our energy policies. Instead of expanding government, Congress should repeal federal laws and polices that raise the price of gas, either directly through taxes or indirectly though regulations that discourage the development of new fuel sources.

These Congress-critters should also get off of their ideological high horses, and allow Americans to enjoy the benefits of free trade with oil-producing nations that are now restricted by misguided and outdated trade polices, which are also artificially raising the price of gas.

Congress needs to STOP ignoring this bill, which could finally bring gas prices down while also addressing the root causes of government-induced economic crises like this one. Please click below NOW to send a FREE message directly to your Representative, and DEMAND that he or she become a co-sponsor of H.R. 2415, the "Affordable Gas Price Act," TODAY:


William Greene, President

P.S.: The likelihood that this common-sense bill will advance beyond the committee stage and be voted on by the House increases in proportion to the number of cosponsors it has! Be sure to send this Alert to EVERYONE you know who wants to DEMAND that members of Congress finally get off of their rear ends and bring gas prices down. Thank you!

What the West Needs to Know about Islam

You need to see this DVD, it can be rented from or other places I'm sure. It tells the facts about Islam that there are two states in the world the State of Islam were the Islamist live and the State of War were everyone else lives who is not a Muslim. According to the Koran those of us who are not Muslims can be lied to, murdered, and subjugated, subjects who pay tribute to the State of Islam. If we are more powerful than the Muslims they will lie to us and tell us they are peaceful and our friends and make peace with us until they become stronger then watch out.
Islam is not only a religion but a form of government which is not compatible with the values of those who live out side of it. Women and non Muslims are second class citizens. It is their goal that the whole world will some day be under the rule of Islam. I can not begin to summarize the 90 minute DVD which is mostly told by those who of lived under Islam or left Islam.

Undercover Reporter in United Kingdom
Films Islamofascism in Action !!

Dear Scott,

Over a year ago, a United Kingdom television station dispatched a reporter to go undercover into mosques in the UK.

In a series of blockbuster video reports that have been posted on YouTube, viewers get to see for themselves what Brigitte Gabriel and others have been warning about for years.

In just the first installment, you will see imams proclaiming:

Allah has created the woman deficient & If she doesn't wear the hijab, we hit her.

You have to live like a state within a state until you take over.

The pinnacle, the crest, the summit of Islam, is jihad.

In that same installment you will see how a large Muslim organization in the UK has a special chat room for communication not meant for non-Muslims to see.

You will see how imams despise non-believers and call for jihad against them.

But what is most relevant for us in America, is that the Saudi Arabian religious establishment that provides the materials and the teaching that is going on inside these British mosques also provides the materials and the teaching for many if not most mosques here in the United States.

So when you click on the link below to view these undercover videos, remind yourself that this is what is happening in mosques right here in America perhaps in your community, and even right down the street from you!

If you aren't able to see these videos on your computer, find someone who can.

Words alone do not do justice to the reality of the threat we are facing. Please click on the link above, view one or more of the videos, and then forward this email to everyone you know.

Another Email

Dear Scott,

U.S. Representative Sue Myrick, co-founder of the House anti-terrorism caucus, has done America a great service with her call for a 10 point plan to tackle the threat of Islamic terrorism here in America.

Her 10 point plan is listed in the article below. Her press release laying out her plan can be viewed by clicking

In the past we have highlighted concerns raised by many of the items in her plan, such as the FBI s flawed Arabic translator program.

She will certainly get criticism from Muslims and the politically correct crowd. We need to show Rep. Myrick that there are Americans who are 100% behind her and applaud her courage and leadership.

Before Monday, please send an email to Rep. Myrick letting her know we re behind her. Click on this link to send her an email:

And if you are so inclined, call her Washington, D.C. office, 202/225-1976, and leave a message there letting Rep. Myrick know we re supporting her efforts.

Make sure you identify yourself as an ACT! for America member when you email or call!

Thank you!

Congresswoman unveils 'Wake Up America' plan to try to stop threats

Lisa Zagaroly

McClatchy Newspapers

Rep. Sue Myrick wants America to "wake up" and stop allowing terrorism to proliferate ... The Charlotte Republican on Friday released a list of 10 items she hopes will help peel back the layers on how radical elements of Islam might be infiltrating the military, school rooms and other elements of society. She also wants to stop the government from supporting terrorist organizations through financial investments and military sales. ... The co-founder of the House anti-terrorism caucus has spent an increasing amount of time trying to tackle what she views as threats posed at home by extremists, an issue that fuels her commitment to deporting illegal immigrants.

Myrick's 10-point plan
  1. Investigate all military chaplains endorsed by Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was imprisoned for funding a terrorist organization.
  2. Investigate all prison chaplains endorsed by Alamoudi.
  3. Investigate the selection process of Arabic translators working for the Pentagon and FBI.
  4. Examine the nonprofit status of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
  5. Make it an act of sedition or solicitation of treason to preach or publish materials that call for the deaths of Americans.
  6. Audit sovereign wealth funds in the United States.
  7. Cancel scholarship student visa program with Saudi Arabia until they reform their text books, which she claims preach hatred and violence against non-Muslims.
  8. Restrict religious visas for imams who come from countries that don't allow reciprocal visits by non-Muslim clergy.
  9. Cancel contracts to train Saudi police and security in U.S. counterterrorism tactics.
  10. Block the sale of sensitive military munitions to Saudi Arabia.

Last Chance to Impact Border Fence

From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, President, Alliance


Dear Scott,

Next Tuesday, Ron De Jong and I will be on Capitol Hill presenting
your petition to key members in the House--demanding that our
borders be secured.

I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to represent you, and promise
that when I stand at the podium on Cannon Terrace, surrounded by
boxes of petitions, I will deliver a powerful and poignant message
to leadership that grassroots Americans will prevail in moving the
government to build the double-layered fence as promised.

I believe a strong grassroots presence will also stimulate The
Fence By Date Certain Act--a critical piece of legislation that
seeks to restore the original mandates in the Secure Fence
Act--most notably the promise to build 800 miles of double
layered fencing.

That's our goal with this delivery--which is why I want to make
certain we do everything in our power to make it our best presentation
to date...

But as usual, I need your help.

Scott, Tuesday afternoon, I want to present at least 250,000
petitions to Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC). Right now we are about 20,000
petitions shy of this quarter-million goal.

With your help I want to make one final push over the weekend
to reach this dazzling goal.

++Action Item--Rally your friends

Forward this message to 25-35 friends and family urging
them to take action by signing our petition demanding the
fence be built as promised, by clicking here:

I would love to represent your friends and family at this upcoming event.
Please impress on them the importance of this issue, and what ultimately
is at stake!

Thank you for taking fast action with me.
