US map shows confirmed cases of Zika along with areas that potential Zika carrier mosquitoes exist (from CDC and Popvox)
This week I cover California gun owners attempt to overturn gunmageddon, if you are in California you can sign the petition by going to a location featured at Veto Gunmageddon. One of our Long Island members is getting the word out on a 47% salary raise for lawmakers and made it on to the New York Post with her petition. In more news, what is happening with Zika funding and I have to lower my blood pressure after what a federal judge uncovered about the not so free USA Freedom Act. Remember that our congressional liars return to work September 6th, until then find them in your state and ask them the hard questions and make them squirm.
This episode is a day late and we apologize for it. Charlie covers a quick review of what has happened at the state level thanks to Popvox’s weekly news letter. Congress is still on their 7 week recess to campaign and meet with their constituents. Yes this is a shorter episode than normal, but we should be back to our normal schedule this coming up week.

Charlie01 does the first of our new format of Friday shows on the weeks political review and what’s coming next week. Unfortunately, congress is on break for seven weeks. Charlie does however covers some state level legislation thanks to Popvox. It’s a short episode, but feel free to contribute to next week by emailing us at Podcast@APIIINation.com
A Weekly Column By Matthew Leber
For the first edition of this column I cannot think of a better topic more pertinent to this moment in time that “we the people” now face. My title is chosen carefully. If there is not a quasi-revolution in play for our entire country right now, there is definitely one ongoing in the Republican Party. We American Patriots that took an oath to the Constitution have for the most part depended on this Party to uphold the values we hold dear. This is proven by the fact that we gave you majorities in both houses of Congress and most of the Governorship in the many States. We put our faith in you. To do what you ask? Stop Obama and the Leftist ruining our country and trashing the people’s Constitution. We didn’t send you there to pass moderate legislation. We didn’t send you there to “get along” and be Bi-partisan. We don’t agree with the left and we didn’t send you there to do it for us. The Constitution is a social contract between the people and their government. You, the establishment, broke the contract. We expect the Leftist to break it at every turn, but we expect you to point to it every time they do, not join in with them. You did. You funded Obamacare. You funded Obama’s illegal Immigration executive orders. You funded Plan Parenthood. These are just a few examples of you rubber stamping Obama’s unconstitutional agenda.
Now you begin to scheme and plot because you are panicked. You are losing control of the Primary process. The top two candidates are outsiders and do not bend to the whims of the Establishment (so far anyway). We are here because you did not listen when Tea Party candidates won seats beginning in 2010. We are here because you did not listen when Cantor was primaried out of his leadership seat. We are here because you did not listen when we made it impossible for Boehner to remain as Speaker of the House. We are here because you have been Democrat-Light and even aided their agenda and complained you were helpless after we sent you to Washington as the Majority.
You complain but you created the insurgent candidates that have won almost all the primary contests and definitely all that have any real consequence. You refused to listen. Over and over and we are tired of sending any more messages that are not strong enough to get you to listen. So here we are. You can chose to listen to the people while we are still here.
“Here” is the crux of the matter. If you the Establishment, scheme at the convention to deny the nomination of the people’s winner, be they Trump or Cruz, you will wish you were back on the playing board called “here”. You do not want to go there.
In this episode we have special guests from American Patriot the III% South Carolina and National to discuss Operation Benghazi Truth. Recently APIII’s Matthew Leber, Monique, and a Marine Sergeant from the SC chapter have made international news by confronting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former president Bill Clinton about the truth of Benghazi. Operation Benghazi Truth is a new initiative to put pressure on Mrs. Clinton for lying to the American people and the families of the fallen four by being at every public appearance till the general election. For info on how to help Operation Benghazi Truth, please email Matthew.Leber@Outlook.com or SouthCarolina@APIIINation.com.
Overview of this weeks podcast from Charlie01
Congress is on recess currently, but upcoming events to watch…
• Senate will start considering the Iran nuke deal sept. 8th
• The end of the federal government’s fiscal year is sept. 30th, will there be a budget passed? Will we see more quantitative easing?… how do you think the world will take more devaluing of the dollar?
• More bills to defund planned parenthood
• Two bills introduced in congress involving sanctuary cities:
1. “Enforce The Law for Sanctuary Cities Act” HR3009 has passed the house and is going to senate judiciary committee after the recess. It denies state or local govt funding if they fail to enforce immigration laws.
2. “Stop Sanctuary Cities Act” S1814- similar to House bill.
• Another Benghazi hearing is scheduled for Oct. 22nd and will be questioning Clinton again regarding her emails
• Congressional Gold Medal HR2567 which gives congressional gold medals to the 4 victims of the Benghazi attack has been proposed in the house.
Today we morn and send our prayers to the families and friends of Alison Parker and Adam Ward after they were gunned down early Wednesday morning. Unfortunately gun control advocates are already beating their drum… be vigilant for gun control attempts.
Events of the week… as everyone knows the market has been very volatile lately with the plunge on Friday and starting out on Monday causing New York Stock Exchange to invoked rule 48 for the first time in 18 years allowing the market to open without setting opening prices during uncertain market conditions and were planning to halt trades if the S&P 500 dropped 7% on Monday.
Preparedness: Emergency Bag (bug out bag, go bag, get home bag)
• Before you build a doomsday bug out bag, build a hotel bag
• Emergency bag items should be tailored to your specific needs, but necessities are food, water, first aid, hygiene products, flashlight, whistle, multi-tool, lighter, duct tape, rope, extra clothes.
• If camping is a possibility add shelter, blankets, fire starters
In this episode of American Patriot the III%’s weekly podcast, I cover some of the bills winding through the US House of Representatives.
From the NRA News, I mention a bill introduced last week expanding the restricted categories that may get you a “deny” on the ATF’s firearm background check.
In international news, i speak about the Iran Nuclear Deal and the overwhelming “love” of our country that the Iranians have for the US and Israel.
I talk a little about the horrible terrorist attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
From Popvox.com I cover some bills in detail including: Interior and Environment Appropriation bill (HR 2822)
Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act (HR 1599)
Improving Coal Combustion Residuals Regulation Act (HR 1734)
Veterans Information Modernization Act (HR 2256)
FTO Passport Revocation Act (HR 237)
In preparedness, I try to stress the importance of having a list of your stock inventory and a list of to buy items. Reference “List of lists on James Wesley Rawles Survival Blog and The Survival Podcast Forum from Jack Spirko.
I remind everyone on two Call To Actions coming up, stop ITAR revisions and Heritage Tour: Ft. Sumter, both requiring action before or on August 1st. If unable to make it to Ft. Sumter, you can easily participate in Operation Patriot Shield if you are not already standing outside a military recruiting center standing guard, make sure you are there on August 1st to protect the brave men and women that risk everything to stand ready to protect us but are not allowed to protect themselves.
The second APIIINation episode, another short episode with just Charlie01 giving a news update. In this episode, I cover some NRA updates, China’s stock market collapse and how it may effect us, and preparedness transportation.
The American Patriot the III% debut podcast is here. It is not the most spectacular first episode, but I hope it isn’t bad. I am your host Charlie01, Editor and Chief of Articles of III%. I touch on our plans for the future episodes of the podcast including my future co-hosts and content. I also recap a few articles that we published recently including Collapse Imminent?, preparing your pets, and Jade Helm 2015…. Gave a shout out to our friends at PCSD Tactical and Doc’s Tactical. In future episodes we would also like to do a question and answer segment. To submit a question or comment, please email us at podcast@APIIINation.com.
With Rand Paul announcing his run for presidential election in 2016, I’d like to point out that despite what media and a lot of left-wing shit stirrers are claiming is false. Just because the threepers do not like King Obama, does not mean that we all rally around a republican candidate. People have been lead to believe we have a two party system and they have been buffaloed enough to the point that states only have a two party primary.
I, myself believe that there is not a candidate out there that can fully fix the damage inflicted by either of the primary parties. This however does not mean that I’m willing to throw in my hat and wait for the second shot heard round the world to kick off. I carefully watch each of the potential politicians and gauge their knowledge or belief in our Constitution and belief in our natural rights that are protected by the Bill of Rights. As of right now, two stand out as potentials. I consider myself to be a constitutionalist, I would prefer to go back to the essence of which our country was founded on. Many of the 3% feel the same, others are just personal liberty minded individuals that are true libertarians or tea party.
I hope someday we can reset this system and see more candidates from Libertarian, Veterans, and Constitutionalist candidates. Unfortunately it would also bring more of the communist and socialist parties.
