IAP leader starts group that seeks political unification of all constitutionalist parties

Note from submitter, KL: This was the article by Cody that Warren  Redlich deleted, leading to Cody leaving IPR and forming his own blog, Independent and Third Party News and Views.


These days, Cody Quirk has had enough.

“After living through the nightmare that took place on Tuesday the 5th, I really have had it; I’ve gone through this for much too long to stomach anymore, I just can’t tolerate it now, period. So I’m putting my foot down and bring an end to it once and for all.”

An end to what, exactly? The Youth Chairman & Carson City Central Committee Chair of the Independent American Party of Nevada (affiliated with the national Constitution Party) answers in detail:

“Ever since the days of George Wallace and the once great American Independent Party, there has been nothing but infighting, strife, and division amongst those third-parties that believe in constitutional government and the restoration of our Constitutional Republic. Ever since the early 1970′s, there has always been two, three, or more political groups that all claim the constitutionalist or paleoconservative mantle, yet cannot merge, or even work together simply because of petty, or selfish differences.

“Believe me, I’ve researched heavily into modern third-party history, the main causes for these divisions have little to do with entryism. or infiltration by outside groups; the main causes have been certain individuals, with a hidden agenda, a prejudice, or a arrogant self-righteous personality -that usually end up either as a leader, or in a powerful position where they can cause serious damage and strife to a political third-party that’s usually in its growing stages, and they pretty much stop that party’s growth and progress in it’s tracks where it would end up becoming politically insignificant or even extinct, all thanks to such individuals. And in a scenario where a third-party splits, many of the individuals in either one, or both factions, are so bitter and hard-headed against the other, that not only will they refuse to work together, but in some cases, they even work to undermine, or sabotage, the other party’s, or faction’s, efforts; therefore hurting their cause, and/or progress, and also emboldening the two-party system, all thanks to such self-destructive actions.

“This has happened to many third parties throughout our history, including the Bull Moose Progressive Party, the Reform Party, etc. However when it comes to third-parties of the constitutionalist, or paleoconservative, persuasion; this kind of infighting has become so common among such parties that share my ideology, that any talk of uniting these parties together as a single, national entity is often scoffed, or laughed at. And any serious attempt, or effort to accomplish that goal, is considered like a ‘Quest for the Holy Grail’.

“…Well, not only do I intend to find that Holy Grail, I intend to make sure it’ll never get lost again.”

The politically active and hard-working Nevadan recently started up a group to accomplish just thatWhich is, to open dialogue and work towards uniting the Constitution Party, the National Independent American Party, the America First Party, the American Party, and every other third-party out there that shares the same beliefs of restoring constitutional government and putting ‘principles above politics’.

It’s called the Clarion Call To Unite Committee, named similarly after a previous group that attempted to accomplish the same thing a few years earlier. Only this time, Mr. Quirk has every intention of seeing that the Clarion Call To Unite Committee achieves its goals.

“After only a few weeks, the response to my founding the CCTUC for the purpose of uniting the parties has been overwhelmingly positive! We’re getting many people joining our Facebook page, and I have already succeeded in seeing many members and leaders of the Constitution Party join and support the calls for unity amongst the constitutionalist parties, and I have recently gotten the National Independent American Party to open official dialogue with us, since the leaders of that party also share the belief that we need to join together for the sake of our Republic and to restore what freedom we have lost so far.

The previous group that used the ‘Clarion Call’ title didn’t try and didn’t persist hard enough back then. This time, things are different; we live in desperate times, and the political field has changed drastically over the past several years. Plus, with a stubborn, relentless individual like me, and others too- failure isn’t an option, especially when our constitution is hanging by it’s last thread now, and I, and others, are doing what we can to make those in the other parties see that, and see that we need to join forces in order to turn the tide around in American politics.”

Specifically, the goal of the CCTUC, as Mr. Quirk has stated, is to first have all the above stated political parties to open dialogue with one another about working together and joining forces. Afterwards, when agreements have been made, and matters on any of the differences and/or disagreements that may exist between each party get negotiated and settled, and the foundation and groundwork for both a complete merger of the parties, and the formation of a national party will later commence; the details on how it would be organized, the drafting of both a set of bylaws, and a platform will be talked about at great length and then set in motion.

“But this won’t all happen overnight, I know that. Though eventually, if we get that far, which I intend for us to be at during some point in the near-future, then we will have to plan out having a National Convention for such a party, where everything will be formalized and set in stone, and the CCTUC’s goals would finally be accomplished. However we’re not getting ahead of ourselves; the dialogue is only starting, so our first goal right now is to get all the parties we’re reaching out to to sit at the discussion table and have friendly talk with us and one another on how to best work together and save our country from political and social peril.”

While such a goal for a group of third-parties to eventually join together into one national political party will indeed not be an easy, or even a quick task for any such individual, or individuals, still- with a passionate, seasoned, knowledgeable, and dedicated patriot like Mr. Quirk, and those that support him in his efforts, could persistence and patience perhaps pay off to due time?

“Rome wasn’t built in a day, and this political feat is not going to be easy, but the division and infighting needs to end now; we need to get together to fight for what is left of our country. Granted, each of these parties may have differences or disagreements with each other, or there may be even personal animosity between the leader, or a member, of one party against another. But then again, in times when that realization of what is happening all around you, and the dark fate that’s approaching ever closer, becomes clear and apparent- then any form of animosity, or difference, will get tossed out the window, and the leaders and members of each party will join ranks together. Because eventually, with our country sinking deeper and deeper into decay and socialism…

They won’t have any option left, except to unite.”

    He’s covering some interesting open seat races in New York and Texas that the LP,CP or Greens should contest.

    Warren, I think Cody overreacted, because, had he asked Paulie or Jill, they would’ve posted it!!

    He was acting childish and his claim that his 1st amendment rights were “violated” is bullshit.

    That being said, I like Cody, he and I are helping each other, I hope he comes back to IPR soon, despite the differences he may have, and that we can bygones be bygones!!! :)

    There’s a lack of objectivity in this article too, but, whatever.

    Cody is stubborn for no good reason. Warren was right to give him the boot.

  4. paulie

    There’s a lack of objectivity in this article too, but, whatever.

    This article is just Krzysztof reporting on what Cody posted elsewhere, so as far as I can tell that’s within our guidelines and long set practice.

  5. paulie

    The only part that is original here is “Note from submitter, KL: This was the article by Cody that Warren Redlich deleted, leading to Cody leaving IPR and forming his own blog, Independent and Third Party News and Views.” That is just a statement of fact. Everything that follows is Quirk’s editorial from elsewhere.

  6. Trent Hill

    Ah, I see. That was a bit unclear–probably because Cody seems to have written the piece about himself? lol

  7. paulie

    Paulie, the politically active and hard working nomad, doesn’t see what could possibly be unclear here.

    Cody wrote about himself, but it was deleted and then posted on Cody’s new blog, and now Krzysztof has reported on what Cody wrote about about himself.

    These days, Paulie has had enough.

    Paulie is now going to interview himself:

    PF: So Paulie, what do you think, is this clear now?

    P: Clear as a bell jar full of molasses.

    PF: Thank you for your time paulie, we know your time is valuable.

    P: The pleasure was all mine.

    PF: Can we do this again some time?

    P: Have your people call my people. We’ll see if we can fit it into our schedule.

    Cody is a good friend of mine and well I back him 100 percent. I have been off and on with the CCTUC and I’m proud of the way things are working. I am also the IAP youth Vice chairman. The CCTUC isnt just a call tou unite third parties its a WAKE UP call for America it needs to be done. Someone has to do the work and Cody is the man to start the fire but it is up to every American Citizen to engulf this nation and open Our eyes.

  9. Alex

    Cody may lack objectivity and yes be stubborn but he has a point so instead of criticizing him look at his meaning he wants America to become the nation it once was. The bullshit were everyone is up everyones asses for things they say or what they do needs to stop if we cant stop fighting amongst ourselves how can anyone else take us seiriously? Ask yourselves one thing how would the Founding Fathers react to this country now? I’ve learned that although Cody lacks a broad veiw on things he has the right goal in sight.

  10. paulie

    Cody may lack objectivity and yes be stubborn but he has a point so instead of criticizing him look at his meaning he wants America to become the nation it once was.

    No one in this thread, at least so far, is criticizing his efforts with CCTUC.

    The discussion has been about his being banned as a writer here, because he thought posting this article (without Krzysztof Lesiak’s intro pragraph) himself was objective journalism, and that was just the last straw, not a standalone incident.

    All he had to do to conform to IPR guidelines was ask someone else to post it.

  11. paulie

    Also, he is not banned from commenting. He self-imposed that ban. He is welcome to comment here any time if he decides to change his mind about that.

  12. Alex

    I am sorry I miss read the comments and after talking with Cody I relize he was the one who banned himself. I was not trying to cause strife. I was quick to defend a friend without relizing both sides and i appoligize.

  13. Jill Pyeatt

    For the record, I offered to re-post the article for Cody here on IPR, I believe before all Hell broke loose. He seems like a smart and aware guy. I just think some of us independent-thinking types find it hard to follow rules. We don’t have tons of rules here to submit at IPR, so it just seems like respecting those few rules is the least I can do to be allowed to participate.

  14. Krzysztof Lesiak Post author

    I asked Cody directly on Facebook if he would ever come back. Here is his response:

    “When Warren steps down as the owner of IPR, and the majority of IPR contributors want me back, then I’ll come back.”

  15. paulie

    I am sorry I miss read the comments and after talking with Cody I relize he was the one who banned himself.

    I believe Trent removed him as a writer here (I could be wrong, maybe he removed himself) but I no longer remember what the issue was.

    The Warren gave him another shot and it did not take him long at all to get booted this time.

    He did boot himself as a commenter. He is welcome to comment any time he wants, but chooses not to.

    We don’t have tons of rules here to submit at IPR, so it just seems like respecting those few rules is the least I can do to be allowed to participate.

    Agreed!

    “When Warren steps down as the owner of IPR, and the majority of IPR contributors want me back, then I’ll come back.”

    Warren paid a lot of money for IPR, so I hope it works out for him.

    As for Cody, I have no problem with him posting articles, but if a policy is in place he needs to follow it like everyone else. I am on record in favor of the changing the policy; but while it exists there should be no special exemptions.

    As far as his beef with Warren for enforcing it, nothing I can do about that. It is what it is. I hope Cody’s blog does well too – the more the merrier. I am copying him on news tips, and as far as I am concerned he is welcome to cross-post anything I post here, but if it contains original writing I ask that he (or anyone else cross posting) attributes author credit and a link back to the source.

  16. Krzysztof Lesiak Post author

    He already cross posts my shit on IPR to his blog. But for someone who promotes unity among third parties, why not promote unity among blogs, shut his down, and come back to IPR? :)

  17. Jill Pyeatt

    Dennis said: “Why not shut down third parties and we all just go to the GOP?”

    Uh, because there too many lying warmongers in that party, for starters.

  18. johnO

    GOP is having a meltdown at the moment. D’s are the Leviathan monster that gets fatter and fatter. Dennis we need LP, CP, GP, even the splinter parties. We need MORE choices not just all go to GOP. Sounds like Stalin’s Russia or the National Socialist Party uber alles. ONE party and NO choices. Or go to the GULAG. Yikes, sounds like mighty whitey post.

  19. Jill Pyeatt

    Oh, sorry, Dennis. It’s hard to catch that stuff in black-and-white text something, and, besides, I enjoy pointing out that many Republicans are warmongers–
