Most elderly people know
what it is to be young and ignorant;
but not a single young person knows
what it is to be old and wise.

Speaking at the Virginia Fourth of July Tea Party at Monticello, Molotov Mitchell delivers one of the most inspiring speeches I have ever seen.
Molotov Mitchell is indeed the Patrick Henry of our day.
With great hope and clarity, he states the situation we are in today and provides an honorable resolution.
Please take the time to watch this!

Fourth of July Speech
Ladies and Gentlemen -- Molotov Mitchell
I am so excited to come up here. Me and my friends from Raleigh, North Carolina came up here to be with you today.
I am so honored -- truly honored - to spend this auspicious day with such auspicious patriots.
It feels good to be here doesn't it? Yes?
It feels good to come up for air.
I know how you feel.
I know how you feel -- like the underground.
You feel suffocated...these days... by the none stop, onslaught, of politically correct news-speak.
You feel suffocated by the 24/7 Obama parade that is CNN, or MSCBS, or ABC, or PBS, or whatever.
You spent your 9-to-5 -- taunted by that Obama bobble head on the new guy's desk -- or that stupid "Hope" poster he just put up by the copy machine.
You watch what you say -- around certain people -- especially strangers.
You huddle around your radios like refugees -- like British families during the Nazi bombing raids.
You cling to hope as dispensed by Rush (Limbaugh), or Sean (Hannity), or Mark (Levin) --- or Michael Savage if you're really crazy -- like me.
I know how you feel.
Sometimes you feel helpless.
The USA is fast becoming the USSA.
But today is a day of celebration. I am genuinely happy -- today is the Fourth of July!
Today is Independence Day!
And on this day, in 1776, our Founding Fathers determined that they were going to run those British tyrants out on a rail.
Those unfortunate souls -- who made the mistake of crossing people like George Washington -- people like Patrick Henry -- Virginians like Thomas Jefferson.
They made a big mistake -- you know -- you don't mess with those guys!
You know, I crack up when people say I am a right-wing extremist -- because in my videos, I make fun of liberals.
You want to see a right-wing extremist? You pull out a dollar bill -- you pull out a five -- you pull out a ten ---- you pull out a crisp Benjamin -- and you are looking at a right-wing extremist!
Those guys were the real deal right-wing extremist.
Those guys were blowing guys heads off over the price of tea!
You and me, we're not extremists compared to those guys -- at least I'm not -- I don't know you Virginia.
But I will tell you what, I am particularly proud to be here in the shadow of Monticello.
I love this right-wing extremist Thomas Jefferson -- You may have heard of him.
Thomas Jefferson, that is a right-wing extremist -- he said that we should have a revolution every 20 years.
That's crazy to me -- that's a right-wing extremist -- I think we should have a revolution every 150? -- every 300? I don't know.
Thomas Jefferson, I identify with him.
He also said, "I like a little rebellion -- every now and then -- it's like a storm in the atmosphere."
I don't know about you, but I feel a storm in the atmosphere -- and I like it! -- I love it!
We are in perilous times, there is no doubt -- But I wouldn't have it any other way.
I am completely excited, I'm optimistic.
All these sad faces, "Turn that frown upside down"
Some people think I'm crazy because I'm happy -- through all this crisis.
Let me paint a picture for you, OK? This will help you understand.
Imagine that you are in the back of a smoky bar, behind a steel-reinforced door, sitting at a poker table.
There's only two people left in the game -- the games been going on for years -- decades actually.
You've won some, you've lost some. Other people have come and gone.
But now it's just you and -- the communists --.
And he just went ALL IN.
All of his chips, the money, his jewels, everything just got pushed into the middle.
Now -- the knee-jerk reaction of a lot of people here in America is
"Oh no!!!" "He must have a killer hand!!!"
"I'm finished!" "I'm going to lose everything!"
"I've got to fold!"
Ohhhhh! That's the attitude of a RINO -- that's the attitude of a moderate -- that's the way a coward sees the situation, but I will tell you what I see.
I see that pot --- and I want it.
Do you want it?
I don't believe you -- do you want it? Awesome!
When I look at that guy sitting across the table from me, you know what I see.
I see the same cocky British SOB who tried to pickpocket Thomas Jefferson -- I see the same cocky Soviet who thought he could break Ronald Reagan -- and I see the same cocky Jihadist who thought he could bring America to her knees.
But more than anything -- I see the pot.
And I am excited.
Once again, our enemy has overreached -- and this time, they have overreached with everything on the line.
And guess what -- they're bluffing!
We have the winning hand.
Let me encourage you right now.
A handful of pencil-necked, metro-sexual socialists in Washington -- can't possibly defeat a nation of red-blooded, God-fearing patriots.
We're going to win.
We're going to win -- at least that is what I believe. I don't know what you believe.
Everybody has to play their own hand in this game.
So you tell me Virginia -- Are you going to fold? No!! Are you sure? Yes!! Are you sure I can't convince you?
alright -- then we are going all in -- and we are going to clean them out -- and America is going to walk away with the pot just as we have generation after generation.
Yes -- the spirit of Thomas Jefferson is alive and well in -- Iran
The spirit of Thomas Jefferson is alive and well in -- Honduras
Especially Honduras -- where their Marxist president just tried to tamper with their Constitution, and guess what happened? The Honduran military took that socialist dictator wanna-be to the border and said, "Hasta la vista baby -- better luck in Costa Rica!"
Sounds nice doesn't it? Sounds nice to me.
Time will tell
Yes, Thomas Jefferson's spirit is alive and well in other countries, but dare I ask?
Is the spirit of Thomas Jefferson still alive in America?
Yes!!! You're dern right he is.
Let me just address one thing here -- about Marxist presidents and Constitutions.
Barack Obama's birth certificate. Uh-oh!!
I have personally interviewed most of the experts involved. -- I've spent time with Dr. Ron Palarick -- who proved conclusively -- that that image you see on the web that they claim to be his birth certificate is actually fraudulent. Listen, now I am not hearing this second hand, I interviewed the expert.
I interviewed Phil Berg, I am actually one of the first groups to actually film him and explained the situation at the outset.
I know a little bit about what I am talking about.
Let me give you a few facts. This is worth noting.
Barack Obama's grandmother -- Kenyan grandmother -- says he was born in Kenya.
His elementary school records in Indonesia, say that he is an Indonesian citizen at a time when they did not allow dual citizenship.
He has sealed every record that could indicate his national origin -- his school records -- his medical records.
He traveled in and out of Pakistan where American passports were not allowed -- How did he do that?
How about this. I have a new question that I have not heard asked yet. Why haven't they built a monument to commemorate where he was born? Because no one can prove where he was born.
Now I know some of you are thinking this is crazy. -- This is conspiracy theory.
This is a silver bullet!
This is jujitsu.
This is the Achilles heel of the Democratic Party -- who is complicit in this!
Now I'm not trying to give you false hope here. I'm telling you, if we push this heard enough we can win.
If we can prove that Barack Obama is ineligible to serve, everything his pen has touched will be declared null and void. -- Everything!
You want TARP out of here -- gone.
Sotomayor -- gone.
bailouts -- gone.
We have what man has sought after throughout time -- we have a time machine.
Yes, a time machine and with it we can undo most of the damage that's been done.
But in addition to undoing that damage, we can prove that the Democratic Party (i.e. Congress) was complicit in the greatest fraud ever perpetuated on Americans in our history
You want to hurt these guys, this is it.
Lock onto this eligibility issue and don't let go.
If we can convince our cowardly Republican leaders to stand up and address this issue -- Obama will resign.
If he doesn't -- we know we are under a dictatorship, and we can act accordingly.
But for now -- we have a counterfeit King -- living in the White House.
And I use the word King advisedly -- because when you have a leader who is wining and dining Michael Maybelle in gay-Parie -- when you have her taken to Broadway -- when you have Hannah Montana being paid to come into the White House to entertain his kids -- when he's flying in pizza chefs, for tens of thousands of dollars for one pizza -- while you and me have double digit unemployment -- while we are up to our necks in recession -- we have a King, just like our Founding Fathers faced.
If we are going to win this thing we are going to have to organize.
I don't want to hurt your feelings, but right now you need to know -- Washington is laughing at us.
Our news anchors are making lewd, crude sexual jokes about these Tea Parties.
Why? Because we are not organized. -- They don't think they're threatened.
If you want to talk to me more about how to get organized, I'll be over there at the DEN table afterward and we can talk about it.
But for now, despite all the problems, we have -- our freedom of speech. -- Isn't that great?
We have our right to assemble.
We have our right to bear arms -- for now.
But that can all be taken away if we don't get together.
In closing, I want to leave you with the words of another great Virginian -- Patrick Henry.
These are the last words he gave to the Virginia House of Burgesses. I know many of you probably know it by heart -- but I am going to read it to you today.
Let it resonate in your soul!!
Let it stick with you through the day and recite it to yourself throughout the year, you're going to need it.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry 'Peace', but there is no peace. The war is actually begun -- the next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms, our brethren are already in the field. Why stand we here idle? What is it the gentlemen wish? What
would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery.
Forbid it, almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, 'Give me Liberty of give me death!'
God Bless America and God bless you. Happy Independence Day.
Now you know how he got the name 'Molotov".
Patrick Henry Speech
of March 23, 1775
No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free-- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
