Freaks and Twelvers,
Did you see today's Tennessean article which contained bits of information about one of our members, Kevin Kookogey? The article was about the rebellion of the Republican party towards its party chief, Governor Haslam.
Are you surprised? Did you believe that our work and our coaching by such men as Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Walter Williams, Laura Ingrahm, Frank Gafney, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and other good Americans would almost never raise the temperature of the body politic?
Because we outnumber socialists like Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Pelosi, Reid, Soros, Clinton and all of their very famous and very rich followers, it is only normal to begin to see a fracturing of the system as a whole.
Most of us recently came from and abide in the Republican party so it's only natural that the first crack would be nearest to the source of the increasing pressure!! You, ACT, the Tea Party have built a force that is finally demanding the Republican Party's attention. Finally.
You were right to be asking, "How long will they do this to me". It's true, Romney wasn't our first pick but there are only two hands in front of us and we aren't offered a third. If we had set forward the primaries for President by 2 years to 2014, I suspect the result would be much more agreeable to all of us. The wave of change is just now starting to catch up. The seeds are breaking through.
I'm proud to say that it was 912ers influence and organizing that saw to our member, Kookogey, becoming Chair of his county GOP. He has been a champion and he's one of many other liberty-minded Republicans who are becoming the future of the GOP in Tennessee.
By the end of the week, the eight Tennessee County GOPs on record for criticizing Governor Haslam will have grown to twenty who are breaking the silence of approval to anything our Republican elected officials do.
We've patiently waited to see a significant sign that we, who have been doing the work, do matter.
I need more help to keep tipping the statue as we build a genuine conservative statue to take its place.
Part of the push that is going to rattle the Republican establishment happens this Friday when our Resolution is going to be published in the Tennessean, either in section A or section B...won't know until Friday morning.
Forty of our members have stepped up bear the cost of this Resolution. The range of contributions varies from as little as $10 to more than $1,000.
A full page ad, the one that will give the greatest effect, costs $5,000. Currently, we have $4,250 and are in need of the last $750.
I believe that anyone who has contributed more than $500 should not further contribute. I ask that you not.
Of our full membership, we ought to be able to get enough donations, even small ones, to reach the full $750...by tomorrow at noon.
If you will contribute via Paypal with your credit card or Paypal account, please donate at
If you cannot pay via credit card but can assure me that you'll send me a check for this project, please Email me the amount that you'll give and the day that you'll send it out. We're so close.
Make checks payable to 912 Project Tennessee and send to

These funds will be going to Friday's step 2 of taking back the Republican party.
The next step will be in two phases, August 2 and then November 6.
We love the Republicans but honestly, as a party they have been entrenched in old ways producing irresponsible Lamar Alexanders, Dick Lugars, Lindsey Grahams. We are out of time and cannot be any nicer than this.
There is so much buzz about what is going on this week, I agreed to do an interview with Fox's Channel 17 to discuss Governor Haslam and his partnering with Shariah focused Muslims, to even form a Muslim Advisory Council...in the name of Tennessee ! It airs tonight at 9:00.
If you want to see a copy of the Resolution that will be printed on Friday, please Email me with your statement that you won't forward it to anyone until Friday morning.
Be encouraged, we have cause,
