Dear Friends of Ramona TEA’D,
Our next Community Forum/Town Hall Meeting will be held on Saturday, July 26. (see details below)
Friends, for the latest updates from “America’s Toughest Sheriff” on the Obama-initiated, full-scale foreign invasion of illegals from south of the border NOW UNDERWAY in Maricopa County, AZ (and elsewhere), Arpaio’s all-volunteer posse, the Obama birth certificate forgery investigation, Sheriff Joe’s tremendously successful jail inmate policies ranging from male chain gangs, bans on smoking, coffee, movies, pornography, and unrestricted TV — all the way to the (WORLD FAMOUS) pink underwear and baloney sandwiches Sheriff Joe provides for his “tent city in the desert” inmates, DON’T MISS THIS!
Not only does Sheriff Joe understand how to fight dangerous criminals AND WIN, he understands how to defeat a far craftier and more vicious foe — POLITICIANS! He’s been under relentless investigation since Day One of Obama’s first term. Joe’s response to this constant harassment has been to throw his facilities and his files wide open with confidence to every new thrust of these tag-team fishing expeditions. Not one shred of evidence has yet been uncovered to indicate there ever has been anything improper. What does THIS tell us about this man, what he’s up against, WHO’S ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE LAW — AND WHO’S NOT?
Learn why, after 50 years of public service, Sheriff Joe is IMMUNE TO THE CORRUPTION OF POLITICS, and STILL says, “The public is my boss, so I serve the public!”
DON’T MISS THIS EXCLUSIVE OFFER — ONLY FROM 11:00 AM UNTIL PROGRAM START TIME AT NOON!
Now if THIS^ isn’t THE #1 REAL AMERICAN FASHION STATEMENT OF OUR TIMES….Well, then! WE REALLY CAN’T IMAGINE WHAT IS!
PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY! We’re opening the doors at 11:00 AM as usual. Up until our 12:00 noon program start time, in place of our usual preliminary video footage, we invite everyone to meet and greet Sheriff Joe personally! This will ALSO be your opportunity to purchase Sheriff Joe’s ORIGINAL, SPECTACULAR, WORLD FAMOUS, pink prison boxer shorts with Maricopa County Sheriff badge, personally autographed by Sheriff Joe for $15 each! Proceeds go directly to Maricopa County Underprivileged Youth Charity.
We expect ’em to go fast, friends. So make your purchases early. Once the program begins, there will be NO FURTHER SALES!
We hope you will be joining us to welcome our distinguished guest, Sheriff Joe Arpaio to Ramona TEA’D!
PLEASE DO bring a new friend to the meeting!
We hope to see you then, friends!
US Congresswoman Susan Davis (San Diego) has asked the public to a “Town-Hall” style event this Monday night. PLAN ON BEING THERE! More info here: http://sandiegopatriots.com/2014/07/08/susan-davis-helds-public-townhall-event/
Americans for legal immigration PAC have called for a day of NATIONAL protest as our borders are being overrun by illegal immigration. For rally specifics go to: http://www.alipac.us/f8/protest-times-locations-july-18-19-national-protests-against-amnesty-307111/
There were barely 100 people at the Murrieta protest on the first day yet they changed public opinion. If we don’t show our faces they will think our silence means our approval
San Diego Tea Party is looking for a few specific volunteers:
A spokesperson—-Someone good with speaking to the media.
A Volunteer coordinator— Someone good at finding people to help with specific jobs
Website article admin—– Someone who can simply input articles, news and events at our wordpress blog at SanDiegoPatriots.com
Organiser—-What I’ve been doing! (Or in this case, not doing)
email me back at SanDiegoPatriots@gmail.com
US Congresswoman Susan Davis has invited the public to a townhall meeting.
You’re invited to vent your frustration and give her advice on where she may be going wrong.
Here are only a few of my questions off the top of my head I have for Rep. Davis:
Several ACA requirements (were held off until AFTER the 2014 elections) are estimated to leave folks with SKYROCKING premiums.
Question: What will obamacare premiums look like in the next year or two? How can we trust your rosy predictions with so many false promises in the past?
Congress and over 1200 + company’s (most of them union or Government connected) get waivers to Obamacare.
Question: This is BLATENTLY WRONG by any standards, what have you done to stop it?
As a congresswoman in a large border county, you know 70% of the border patrol agents are currently changing diapers and babysitting instead of patrolling the border. This policy invites millions from dozens of other third world countries to do the same.
Question: what have you done to ensure our laws and border sovereignty are still in tack?
You and Bob Filner voted AGAINST keeping the Mount Soledad cross going against your own constituents in a 349-74 vote in congress. Question: Shouldn’t you be standing WITH your constituent rather than against them?
Original message from Susan Davis below
May 31, 2014
The Greatest Murder Machine in History
When one thinks of mass murder, Hitler comes to mind. If not Hitler, then Tojo, Stalin, or Mao. Credit is given to the 20th-century totalitarians as the worst species of tyranny to have ever arisen. However, the alarming truth is that Islam has killed more than any of these, and may surpass all of them combined in numbers and cruelty.
The enormity of the slaughters of the “religion of peace” are so far beyond comprehension that even honest historians overlook the scale. When one looks beyond our myopic focus, Islam is the greatest killing machine in the history of mankind, bar none.
The Islamic conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. — Will Durant, as quoted on Daniel Pipes site.
Conservative estimates place the number at 80 million dead Indians.
According to some calculations, the Indian (subcontinent) population decreased by 80 million between 1000 (conquest of Afghanistan) and 1525 (end of Delhi Sultanate). — Koenrad Elst as quoted on Daniel Pipes site
80 Million?! The conquistadors’ crimes pale into insignificance at that number. No wonder Hitler admired Islam as a fighting religion. He stood in awe of Islam, whose butchery even he did not surpass.
Over 110 Million Blacks were killed by Islam.
… a minumum of 28 Million African were enslaved in the Muslim Middle East. Since, at least, 80 percent of those captured by Muslim slave traders were calculated to have died before reaching the slave market, it is believed that the death toll from 1400 years of Arab and Muslim slave raids into Africa could have been as high as 112 Millions. When added to the number of those sold in the slave markets, the total number of African victims of the trans-Saharan and East African slave trade could be significantly higher than 140 Million people. — John Allembillah Azumah, author of The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa: A Quest for Inter-religious Dialogue
Add just those two numbers alone together, and Islam has surpassed the victims of 20th-century totalitarianism. However, it does not end there. Add the millions who died at the hand of Muslims in the Sudan in our lifetime.
Much of Islamic slavery was sexual in nature, with a preference for women. Those men who were captured were castrated. The mulatto children of the women were often killed, which explains why Islam was not demographically shifted towards the black race, unlike slaves in the West, who bore children to breed a mestizo class. Add in those dead children; and we arrive at well over 200 million.
Remember that in the 7th century, North Africa was almost totally Christian. What happened to them?
By the year 750, a hundred years after the conquest of Jerusalem, at least 50 percent of the world’s Christians found themselves under Muslim hegemony… Today there is no indigenous Christianity in the region [of Northwest Africa], no communities of Christians whose history can be traced to antiquity.– “Christianity Face to Face with Islam,” CERC
What happened to those Christian millions? Some converted. The rest? Lost to history.
We know that over 1 million Europeans were enslaved by Barbary Pirates. How many died is anybody’s guess.
…for the 250 years between 1530 and 1780, the figure could easily have been as high as 1,250,000 – BBC
In the Middle Ages…
…many slaves were passed through Armenia and were castrated there to fill the Muslim demand for eunuchs. — Slavery in Early Medieval Europe.
The same practice ran through Islamic Spain. North Europeans captured from raids up to Iceland, or purchased, were butchered in the castratoriums of Iberia. Many died from the operations that ran for centuries.
The number of dead from the Muslim conquest of the Balkans and Southern Italy is unknown, but again the numbers add up, surely into the millions over the centuries. Don’t forget the 1.5 million Armenian Christians killed by the Turks during WWI. We do know that over five centuries, vast numbers of Christian boys were kidnapped to become Islamic Janissary mercenaries for the Turks. Add those in, too.
Muslims prized blonde women for their harems; and so enslaved Slavic women were purchased in the bazaars of the Crimean Caliphate. In Muslim Spain, an annual tribute of 100 Visigothic [blonde] women was required from Spain’s Cantabrian coast.
For decades, 100 virgins per year were required by the Muslim rulers of Spain from the conquered population. The tribute was only stopped when the Spaniards began fighting back — Jihad: Islam’s 1,300 Year War Against Western Civilisation
Add in the death toll from the Reconquista and the numbers climb higher.
Research has shown that the Dark Ages were not caused by the Goths, who eventually assimilated and Christianized:
…the real destroyers of classical civilization were the Muslims. It was the Arab Invasions… which broke the unity of the Mediterranean world and turned the Middle Sea — previously one of the world’s most important trading highways — into a battleground. It was only after the appearance of Islam… that the cities of the West, which depended upon the Mediterranean trade for their survival, began to die. — Islam Caused the Dark Ages
Add in those unknown millions who died as a consequence.
How many know the horrors of the conquest of Malaysia? The Buddhists of Thailand and Malaysia were slaughtered en masse.
When attacked and massacred by the Muslims, the Buddhists initially did not make any attempt to escape from their murderers. They accepted death with an air of fatalism and destiny. And hence they are not around today to tell their story. – History of Jihad.org
We may never know the numbers of dead.
After Muslims came to power in the early 15th century, animist hill peoples eventually disappeared due to their enslavement and ‘incorporation’ into the Muslim population of Malaya, Sumatra, Borneo, and Java via raids, tribute and purchase, especially of children. Java was the largest exporter of slaves around 1500. — Islam Monitor
In the same manner, Islam arrived in the Philippines. Only the appearance of the Spanish stopped a total collapse, and confined Islam to the southern islands.
The coming of the Spanish saved the Philippines from Islam, except for the Southern tip where the population had been converted to Islam.– History of Jihad.org
Again, the number of dead is unknown; but add them to the total.
The animist Filipinos were eager to ally with the Spanish against Islam. In fact, much of Southeast Asia welcomed the Spanish and Portuguese as preferable to Islam.
…from the 17th century successive Thai kings allied themselves with the seafaring Western powers – the Portuguese and the Dutch and succeeded in staving off the threat of Islam from the Muslim Malays and their Arab overlords.– History of Jihad.org
A few galleons and muskets were not enough to conquer Asia. Islam had made the Europeans initially appear as liberators; and to a certain extent they were. Who were the real imperialists?
…Malaysian Jihadis are plotting to transform multi-ethnic Malaysia into an Islamic Caliphate, and fomenting trouble in Southern Thailand.– History of Jihad.org
Add this all up. The African victims. The Indian victims. The European victims. Add in the Armenian genocide. Then add in the lesser known, but no doubt quite large number of victims of Eastern Asia. Add in the jihad committed by Muslims against China, which was invaded in 651 AD. Add in the Crimean Khanate predations on the Slavs, especially their women.
Though the numbers are not clear, what is obvious is that Islam is the greatest murder machine in history bar none, possibly exceeding 250 million dead. Possibly one-third to one-half or more of all those killed by war or slavery in history can be traced to Islam; and this is just a cursory examination.
Now consider the over 125 Million women today who have been genitally mutilated for Islamic honor’s sake. In spite of what apologists tell you, the practice is almost totally confined to Islamic areas.
New information from Iraqi Kurdistan raises the possibility that the problem is more prevalent in the Middle East than previously believed and that FGM is far more tied to religion than many Western academics and activists admit. – “Is Female Genital Mutilation an Islamic Problem?” ME Quarterly
Once thought concentrated in Africa, FGM has now been discovered to be common wherever Islam is found.
There are indications that FGM might be a phenomenon of epidemic proportions in the Arab Middle East. Hosken, for instance, notes that traditionally all women in the Persian Gulf region were mutilated. Arab governments refuse to address the problem. — “Is Female Genital Mutilation an Islamic Problem?” ME Quarterly
Remember that this has gone on for 1400 years; and was imposed on a population that had been formerly Christian or pagan.
FGM is practiced on large scale in Islamic Indonesia; and is increasing.
…far from scaling down, the problem of FGM in Indonesia has escalated sharply. The mass ceremonies in Bandung have grown bigger and more popular every year. — Guardian
The horrified British author of that Guardian article is still deluded that Islam does not support FGM, when in fact it is now settled that FGM is a core Islamic practice. Islamic women have been brainwashed to support their own abuse.
Abu Sahlieh further cited Muhammad as saying, “Circumcision is a sunna (tradition) for the men and makruma (honorable deed) for the women.” — “Is Female Genital Mutilation an Islamic Problem?” ME Quarterly
What other tyranny does this? Not even the Nazis mutilated their own women!
Unlike the 20th-century totalitarians whose killing fury consumed themselves, reducing their longevity, Islam paces itself. In the end, though slower, Islam has killed and tortured far more than any other creed, religious or secular. Unlike secular tyranny, Islam, by virtue of its polygamy and sexual predations, reproduces itself and increases.
Other tyrannies are furious infections, which burn hot, but are soon overcome. Islam is a slow terminal cancer, which metastasizes, and takes over. It never retreats. Its methods are more insidious, often imperceptible at first, driven by demographics. Like cancer, excision may be the only cure.
So whenever you read about this or that Israeli outrage — and there may be truth to the complaint — place the news in context. Look whom the Israelis are fighting against. Islam is like nothing else in history.
This is a Rally to get our marine out of a mexican jail. he has been there almost two months. details below
So far our Facebook event page has 412 confirmed that are coming (as of monday at 9pm) https://www.facebook.com/events/1434243093501900/?ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming&source=1
KFI called and wants to send a person down to cover.
KUSI plans to send a camera.
Tim donnelly is coming down
A few people that will be speaking so far are:
Jill Tahmooressi (via phone)
Ann Marie Murrell
Left leaning Folks like Tamera Holder and people from Moveon.org have went on record to support releasing this Marine. There is Bi-Partisan outrage over this incident.
So bring a sign and help make a statement
(suggested sign below)
The rally will be held (approximately) here
Parking can be a pain so I made this map of the area. The outlet stores have free parking but i’m not sure of the parking policy’s there. The further you get from the rally area the cheaper parking gets.
For Immediate Release: Protest at Mexican Border, Calling for Immediate Release of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi
Contact: Dr. Gina Loudon, 217-653-2238
“Tension is building. Many in the US think it is unjust, un-American, for this brave marine who fought for our freedom to spend Memorial Day in a Mexican prison” said Dr. Gina Loudon, of the Patriot Coalition of San Diego County. We will be right on the border on the hearing date, supporting our Marine!”
Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) has called for citizens to rise up in defense of the marine’s freedom. Sgt. Tahmooressi was imprisoned for accidentally carrying firearms across the border when he took a wrong turn.
International lender, Brian Brady plans to attend. He said, “If both the Mexican government and the American government secured and marked the border, these problems could be avoided. The Mexican government should recognize the border signage problem (on both sides), warn Americans of their unique laws, and release Tahmooressi immediately.”
His first hearing is scheduled on May 28, but citizens say that is not soon enough.
“Where are the politicians inside the Beltway on this?” asked Lainie Sloane, who is planning to attend the protest. “We all say we are patriotic, but when the rubber meets the road, the men are quickly separated from the boys!”
Groups mounting in support of the imprisoned marine are bipartisan and broad. “As a young American, it outrages me that politicians seem more interested in advancing a political agenda than helping our troops who have sacrificed so much. On behalf of the millennial generation, we are disgusted by our leaders but love our troops” said Sam Whitfield of Junior Factor Nation.
John Loudon, fmr. State Senator from Missouri stated, “Americans do not leave their own behind.” He plans to attend the protest rally on Wednesday, as well.
“This country will be judged for its treatment of our military” Dr. Loudon remarked. After families celebrate together over the weekend, we are asking them to pause to really honor our brave in tangible ways, and join us on the border to stand with Sgt. Tahmooressi on the day of his hearing.”
“We are not only imploring the Mexican government to free Sgt. Tahmooressi, warned Assemblyman Tim Donnelly. We are imploring our government to make it happen immediately.”
The rally will be held at the border: May 28th, 5775 Camiones Way, San Ysidro, CA 92173 at 5:30 pm

“We ask you to please pass the word on to others in your address book who support Veterans issues, and ask them to vote NO on Proposition 41.”

With a handful of days to go before the absentee ballots are mailed out, San Diego’s original ‘Meet The Candidates’ series will move up to the firstSaturday of the month top hold it’s first ever Candidate forum! We will be hosting seven candidates (and still adding to the list) on Saturday May 3rd at our new location (of which the feed back was so totally positive it encouraged us to hold this forum!). For a list of Candidates, please see the jpeg below. We will give each candidate about 10 minute followed by a brief question and answer period.
Not only do we have seven or more Candidates joining us that morning, but Chef Jorge has created a new breakfast menu, a first for Filippi’s, where they just recently opened the Vincent DeFilippi Room (where we will meet in), named for the founder of this 63 year old locally owned and operated family business. Please make your RSVP’s to come out and meet these great Candidates in person at 10:00 AM on Saturday May 3rd at our new location at the Filippi’s Pizza Restaurant located at 5353 Kearney Villa Rd in San Diego (92123).
Since last summer, Meet The Candidates has offer up for you the leading Candidates running in our community, Candidates such as Tim Donnelly for Governor, Kevin Faulconer for Mayor of San Diego, Chris Cate for San Diego City Council District 6, Kirk Jorgensen for Congress CA-52, Bonnie Dumanis for the District Attorney of San Diego Country and Judge Ken Gosselin for the Superior Court of the County of San Diego and just last month Pete Peterson for SOS. We hope you will continue to allow us to present these outstanding Candidates for you in the intimate setting where you can get face to face and ask the questions you have and decide if this/these are the candidate(s) you want to cast your vote for.
