Paul Rolly’s Definition of Politics

BSA Paul RollyOn June 30, 2016, the BSA Utah National Parks Council opened its doors to another community gathering, a seminar on the Constitution and how to engage in restoring its principles and being a good citizen. Liberty Rising, a non-profit organization established by the LaVoy Finicum family, sponsored the event. He was the patriot rancher that was murdered in an illegal “kill stop” in Oregon earlier this year during a peaceful protest by other patriots, who know the Constitution in the tradition of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. The purpose was to bring attention to the unlawful double jeopardy incarceration of the Hammond family, last of the ranchers in southeastern Oregon where uranium is soon to be mined by a Russian-owned company – Uranium One – in bed with the Clinton Foundation.

The FBI is now under criminal investigation for two unaccounted bullets fired before Finicum exited his truck with his hands up. The media chose to cover up the story by not reporting it after initial bias had been established. So, the general public is left with the false narrative that these people were “dangerously armed, domestic terrorists.”

Meanwhile, those following the story, including my radio show The Liberty Lineup on www.KTALKmedia.com AM 630 in Salt Lake City, 10-Noon MT daily, good men are being denied seven of their 10 constitutional rights while detained in jails for over 8 months now. They are being held without bail and without having been convicted of any crime. This unconstitutional treatment is now allowed under the “Patriot Act.” What irony.

The Finicum family desires to continue in the work of their deceased father, who was known for his peaceful approach to teaching people about the Constitution. His videos demonstrate this and are found on his website – www.OneCowboyStandforFreedom.com They organized Liberty Rising for this purpose. This event was the launch of their campaign to speak around the United States and to teach people the principles of the Constitution that are either not being followed or have been long lost to lobbyists in Washington DC.

I was the emcee. It was an inspiring evening and frankly, an event for which the Boy Scouts of America would be pleased to have opened its doors.

As always, the BSA did not endorse the content or the group renting the space in the building. The organization has always been a service to the community, opening its doors to political parties for training meetings and candidate forums so that citizens could get to know the candidates better, as well and a variety of issues important to Utahns.

Then on August 3, 2016, at 11:10 AM, the BSA sent an email to a representative of the Finicum family that said:

Because of the content of the subjects your group has presented while using our facilities, BSA can no longer accommodate your meetings in our office.

Our policy is:

“The Boy Scouts of America must not, through its governing body or through any of its officers, chartered councils, Scouters, or members, involve Scouting in political matters.”

All the best in your future endeavors.

Kelly E Evans

Administrative Assistant to John Gailey

Another event organizer, Thomas Butler of the Highland Group, received a similar email letting him know his group was no longer welcome at the facility.

At 11:11 AM, the Salt Lake Tribune’s progressive opinion columnist Paul Rolly posted his article. Hmmm…that was fast. What was the genesis of this communication?

Rolly’s column challenged the BSA’s judgment for inviting the “fringe” – including “doing away with public education, forming militias to fight the tyrannical federal government and, of course stamping out Obamacare.”

Paul Rolly will be on my radio show today along with the others he mentioned in his article. It’s time for a fair and OPEN discussion. Join us.

Love, Lee and Lack of Integrity at Deseret Digital Media

On November 14, 2013 I read a front page article  in the Deseret News on Congressional candidate Mia Love headlined “Love rejects tea party label, didn’t like tactics.” It was disparaging Utah’s Senator Mike Lee and the group of citizens that supported Mia, but it did not sound like Mia. So I texted her cautioning her not to lose her anchor and to stay true to who she is. She immediately called back and expressed her displeasure with the false coverage.

She does support Senator Mike Lee. She does welcome Tea Party support. And she has asked for the Deseret News to retract its false and misleading statements. Here’s a snip of Mia’s statement she sent to me: Continue reading Love, Lee and Lack of Integrity at Deseret Digital Media
