HIGHLIGHT TCC’S CONSERVATIVE ROUNDTABLE
On October 13, with the help of Charles Orndorff and Art Harman and
a crew of volunteer camera operators, we taped two Conservative Roundtable
Programs with Terry Scanlon, chairman of the
Research Center, and Terry Jeffrey, editor in chief of the
News Service, were excellent.
With Terry Scanlon, we talked about the billions
of dollars in Federal money going to Left-wing activist groups, and with
Terry Jeffrey, we talked about the future of print media.

respect to Obama.
My second interview with Bill Meyer on a station in Medford, Oregon

Tell Congress "No Compromise!" |
November 11, 2010 |
The American people have spoken loudly, and the message is to stop
President Obama’s socialist agenda and cut government spending. The most
important message you must constantly reinforce with your Senators and
Representative is "No Compromise."
We must hold firm on a full and complete repeal of ObamaCare,
not agreeing to remove a few pages from the 2,000 page socialist
bill and claim it is fixed.
Pass bills to prohibit spending money to implement ObamaCare.
Pass border security only—no amnesty. Build a full border
fence and seal the border from drugs, gangs and illegals.
No compromise on cap-and-trade/energy/carbon taxes. Pass a
bill to block the EPA from controlling carbon as a pollutant.
Hold a Congressional investigation to determine if
impeachment is warranted.
Investigate abuses of power and potentially illegal or
unconstitutional actions by Obama officials.
Vote NO on all liberal judges and justices. A vote to
confirm a pro-abortion judge or justice, for example, is a vote
Block all attempts to eliminate "don’t ask, don’t tell."
Kill the death tax entirely, don’t compromise on returning to
rates from past years.
Pass no tax increases of any type under any name. No new
Pass tax cuts to help the economy recover, not spend billions
more on stimulus spending.
Slash the budget; eliminate entitlements.
Defeat all unconstitutional bills.
Block any bills which would lead to making Puerto Rico a
Repeal WTO and NAFTA to regain Congressional control of trade
While the House now has the opportunity to pass worthwhile bills,
these may be rejected by the Senate and vetoed by the President. Thus
the pressure will be on conservatives to compromise and cave in to pass
bills which Obama will sign. This is a phony bargain and falling for
this trick will preemptively surrender the strength of the new Congress
to the President.
By holding firm and watching good bills be vetoed, we
are actually strengthening our position and setting up for 2013 when we
may get such bills signed. Each veto strengthens the conservatives in
Congress and forces the President to offend the majority of Americans to
appease his leftist friends.
TCC's Constitution Day

TCC COMMEMORATES CONSTITUTION DAY
On September 17, with the essential help of Charles Orndorff, Art
Harman, and Brenda Gant, we had a successful celebration of Constitution
Day at the Hyatt Rosslyn Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. I began the
program by reading from Andrew Jackson’s Farewell Address and other
matters relating to his career and his presidency. Samuel Phillips
delivered a reading on the importance of Constitution Day. Alexandra
Phillips sang God Bless America.
I reviewed Bob Marshall’s important contributions as a member of the
Virginia legislature, and he delivered an excellent speech on the role
of citizens in restoring the Republic.
Following the formal presentations, there was discussion with members
of the audience, including Richard Norman, who gave an update on Tea
Party developments. Richard does the fundraising for one element of the
Tea Party, namely the Tea Party Patriots. Marshall received the USTA
Andrew Jackson Champion of Liberty Award.

Americans 'Send Them a Message' to
The Conservative Caucus (TCC) launched the "Pledge to
Repeal ObamaCare" campaign at
Americans are urged to visit and print the Pledge to Repeal
ObamaCare and get their Senators, Representative and
candidates for the House and Senate to sign the pledge.
Howard Phillips, TCC’s Chairman, announced the campaign
and the launch of www.SendThemAMessage.com, "This is a vital
step in repealing Obama’s Socialist medicine scheme, to help
keep the pressure on members of Congress to resist the influence
of special interests and liberals in both parties who will be
lobbying to avoid repealing ObamaCare.
Make no mistake, there are many powerful individuals and
companies who will quickly learn how to profit from health care
rationing and other elements of Socialist medicine; they will
fight efforts by Americans to repeal this dangerous scheme."
Mr. Phillips invited Americans to
pass the word to their friends; "As concerned citizens, your
action and that of your friends can make the difference, and I
invite you to visit SendThemAMessage.com now and send ‘them’ a
In conclusion, Mr. Phillips noted the effectiveness of
videoing pledge signing and deliveries, "Under the scrutiny of a
video camera, you may find members of Congress and candidates
more willing to be courageous and sign the pledge to repeal
ObamaCare, than in the quiet of their office with special
interests looking over their shoulder."
The Conservative Caucus (TCC) is a grass roots action
organization, formed in 1974. It was active in opposing the
ObamaCare bill, defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the
Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care
takeover, and impeaching President Clinton.

Recently I was asked "If you were going to homeschool your
own children today, what curriculum and method would you
I am, in fact, helping to homeschool four of my
grandchildren, and my method is very simple: a) I share life
experiences with them, b) I give them books to read which I
think are of particular value and importance, c) I ask them to
write reports on each of those books, d) I emphasize vocabulary
and grammar, et cetera. So far, each of them is doing very well
on their College Board tests and college admissions.
My youngest son, Sam, was homeschooled, even while he resided
in his mother’s womb, and he was accepted at every college to
which he applied, including Hampden-Sydney, William and Mary,
Virginia Military Institute, Christendom College, and The
Citadel. In most cases, he was offered scholarships.
We had no fixed curriculum, but we made sure he was well
versed in the Constitution, the Bible, current events, history,
You also ask "If you were going to invest in career education
today, where would you place a bet on demand for the future?
What skills would you develop in order to be a viable worker in
the economy of the future?".
My answer is very simple. There will always be a demand for
integrity, energy, as well as verbal and written communication
Good men are hard to find, and they usually will have no
problem whatsoever in finding suitable opportunities.
Thanks for asking.
