Patriots, the countdown has now begun! With only 103 days to go, I thought that it might be the perfect time to begin giving you all “Official” weekly status updates on the Celebrating Liberty Festival. Keep up with these articles, since not only will they give you current information but also interesting background information not found in articles or interviews in the mainstream media. Expect each piece to be fun and informative, as we lead up to what will– no doubt– be the largest political event this side of the November election. If you plan on attending this whale of a good time in the New Mexican mountains, our website will be a necessity for all of your travel and on-site information. (www.celebratingliberty.com)
Now let me tell you more about this exciting, new section on our event site. It’s where you will get the up-to-the-minute status as we plan this great event. On top of this, you will get behind-the-scenes glimpses you won’t find anywhere else– exclusively for you, the Tea Party Tribune and Celebrating Liberty reader! This section will be titled Under the Radar.
The current status of the festival? We’re on target to have a huge blowout, or what I like to refer to as a Conservative Mardi Gras.
Already our official event coordinator is on the ground in Moriarty, New Mexico. Robin Foshee is a Tea Party faithful, and I’m beginning to thank the good Lord daily for her tremendous talents as an organizing wiz– which is a must for events of this scale. Her capable assistant, Jim Gillespie, deserves a mention, too. He is another Tea Party faithful, and one of the those fellows that knows everyone (or knows someone who knows everyone). That’s another, much-needed commodity in this endeavor. But one of the most exciting things about their coming on board for Celebrating Liberty Festival is that you can help, too! Robin and Jim are looking for volunteer coordinators for each and every aspect of this event. Do you happen to live in (or want to hang out in) New Mexico? If so, do get in touch with me! This is a three-month commitment, starting immediately. Don’t worry about experience, or whether you think you can do something like this… They will need folks to handle an array of details, and you can find your niche. Don’t doubt me on this!
Our entertainment for this festival is rounding out very nicely. So far, we’ve booked some great entertainers– with more on the way. Again, you will want to keep up on our updates, in the Under The Radar section, as they materialize. (www.celebratingliberty.com) You never know what exciting performers might be joining us! You’ll notice that when you click on the respective names of the confirmed performers, you can watch their videos. Currently, that list includes Kimbirly Vasi, Garrett Lloyd King, Krista Branch and Grammy Winner Steve Vaus.
For the hard-core Tea Party crowd, we’ve booked some hard-hitting speakers in the line-up, too. Fox News contributor, and Founder of The Black Sphere.net , Kevin Jackson will be spewing his loyalty to our constitution and other patriotic messaging. He is a fire breather of a speaker and very entertaining to listen to. We also have Tom Trento from The United West, a fellow that routinely goes toe to toe with The Muslim Brotherhood. Not even our hero Chuck Norris can match Tom, when it comes to strong, verbal warfare for America! You’ll cheer as Tom gives his rousing opinion on how America must handle radicals like the Muslim Brotherhood. Lt. Governor John Sanchez , another brilliant speaker, has confirmed. He is very popular with his native New Mexicans, especially amongst the Tea Party faithful. Sanchez is truly a rising star in the Republican Party, and no doubt we will be hearing much from him in the future. And there are many, many more national figures invited– yes, some are the most popular, Conservative speakers, the biggest of the big. Again, stay tuned to Under the Radar for more information as we get it.
Restoring America Project is making every attempt to only contract with local vendors and suppliers for all of our needs. In fact, the staging and sound systems will be provided by a company from Albuquerque. Our tenting is also coming out of there. Many people inquired about this subject. So now you know.
We have extended invitations to many of the nation’s largest conservative organizations, and some have confirmed with us. Some of these groups will be installing Hospitality Tents for the event. As I get a full list, I will keep you all updated.
Before I forget, we are bringing in many, many activities for the younger conservatives attending the festival. One of these activities I am currently working on is a Ferris Wheel. If anyone knows where I can snare one, please do send along that information. The giant 150 foot tall hot air balloon ” Bald Eagle ” will be making his presence known. (photo on website) If you have never seen a pumpkin chunker, you’re truly deprived. I personally haven’t, and I am officially deprived. From what I hear, these contraptions can shoot off a large pumpkin over a mile! This is something that would make the famous comedian Gallagher smile. If you’re too young to remember him: his schtick was smashing melons and pumpkins with a sledgehammer (or some other object) and watching them explode on impact. Can you imagine your Halloween pumpkin being launched a mile away, then exploding? Sounds like fun to me!
Under the Radar!
This is the part where you, the The Tea Party Tribune and Celebrating Liberty reader, get the inside information that the mainstream media can’t give you!
While I cannot divulge every politician that we have invited, let’s just say this: I swear on my favorite black cowboy hat, you will be shocked at who may be coming! They don’t get any bigger, patriots. The minute they confirm, I promise you, we will let you know. I can say this much– we’ve officially extended a invitation to Congressman Allen West (Florida), Senator Marco Rubio (Florida), Governor Susana Martinez ( New Mexico ) and many others. Let’s all hope that they all can work Celebrating Liberty Festival into their busy schedules. We will also extend invitations (when his campaign begins accepting them) to Governor Mitt Romney ( The Presumptive Nominee ) and the Veep Candidate, as well .
As I said in the last paragraph, we cannot tell you everything that might happen. But here’s what I can tell you about our entertainment prospects. In Under the Radar, we will keep you informed about this: we’re working on, persuading, coercing, begging and several other adjectives for the following: Mr. Ted Nugent, Mr. Clay Walker and the legend Gloria Estafen and the Miami Sound Machine.
This weekly update section is meant to be lighthearted and fun. This is not meant to be criticized or anything of that nature. This is meant to keep the fans of Celebrating Liberty Festival current on our shenanigans. If you have suggestions on talent, contacts or would like to volunteer your incredible talents to the effort, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email will follow. Do keep in mind, this little event is going to cost us in the neighborhood of $125,000.00 plus to produce. If you feel so inclined, we can always us contributions. Again, visit the site for that topic.
More coming next week. Same Bat time, same Bat channel.
Until then: Happy trails and God Bless each of you.
