dark so far from his cozy home 40 miles away.
There are two
men whom must never be elected governor. First is Governor Dannel Malloy because
we've seen what damage he can inflict. Second is John McKinney, who can never be
trusted again to lead.
GETTYSBURG ADDRESSTuesday was the 150th
anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg address. The New Haven Museum commemorated
the date by hosting an enthusiastic history professor and an amazing Lincoln
re-enactor. We videoed the entire presentation. Questions from the 100 people in
attendance were particularly of interest. There are seven clips in all. You may
view them all by following this link.
PARTY CHALLENGES MALLOY TO DEBATE Bob MacGuffie, the spokesman for the
Ct Tea Party reacted to the Governor's attack on our Tea Party Patriots. You can

And acting on a
request from Tom Dudchik of the Capitol Report, we traveled to Fairfield to
record MacGuffie's video challenge. Dudchik said he intends to make a news story
of this challenge and will feature it on his Sunday morning TV show.
BRISTOL Last Tuesday, Nov. 12, we backed up Bristol anti-Agenda 21
activist Shawn Ruest, in his attempt to awaken his city in time to forestall a
We all should
become aware of any regional unelected governmental entities that threaten our
way of life. If you don't pay attention you might just be left with a big bill
to try to pay off. We should have at least one Shawn in each CT town.
CORE The next day, Wednesday Nov. 13 we attended the regular Plymouth
Board of Education meeting. At that meeting were possibly the best team of
Common Core fighters ever assembled at a CT small town BOE meeting. It was
historic to watch our friends from Plymouth and other towns work together to
help educate the BOE and others at the meeting. If you would like these patriots
to help you reject the Common Core State Standards in your town, contact us.
WALLINGFORD Be advised that there will be a state wide
meeting on Common Core this Saturday, Nov. 23 from 1-4 PM at the Wallingford
Parks and Rec. Building at 6 Fairfield Blvd. And please join the STOP Common
Core Face Book group to keep constantly informed. Almost 700 members and growing
STATE since the spring we've watched a group of patriots form a
political action group in the Quiet Corner. After seven months the group has
grown to exceed the activity of local Republican Town
committees. They manned stations at the polling places in the 29th
state senate district on Election Day. They used issues to attract attention,
educate and persuade the voters. Have you ever seen the CT GOP do
Led by Duffy Dauphinais of
Killingly, their goal is to supply enough volunteers to topple Donald Williams
from the State Senate. They are still searching for the best candidate to oppose
Williams, and when they find that person they will have a ready-made campaign
infrastructure ready to roll. If you would like to join the District 29 chapter
of Save Our State you can follow Duffy's prompting in this video. And you can
start your own group anywhere, any time. And we will help.
ELIZABETH ESTY What's a Democrat to do these days? The
Congressman is getting bashed from the right and the left. 2014 is going to be
so much fun to watch. But so much more fun to
participate. Join up now and be a hero.
We often travel
the state to attend and record pertinent events and rallies. Along the way we
seek out welcome signs in every town. Our goal is to collect an image in all 169
towns and cities by April 4, 2014. To make things clearer, here's an example of
our recent work. Today we picked up five more towns. We're almost half way to
