    I had a nice surprise at Knob Creek last weekend. One of my favorite Patriot bands was playing at the range house Saturday afternoon.

    Poker Face has been around for about 10 years now and are very well known in the Patriot community. I was surprised to learn that no one in our group had heard of them. Especially the younger guys. They are a hard rock band that is geared more for the younger crowd. But even a middle aged rocker like myself can enjoy a lot of their music.

    So if you haven't heard of these guys you should really take the time to check them out. They are spreading the word and defending freedom with music. Following are links to a couple of their videos and their website.

    You can find them on YouTube too. Check them out. Here are some of the lyrics from a couple of my favorite songs.

    from " Rather Die Than Be Your Slave" on the "Sex, Lies, and Politics" album. It starts as a homage to the Patriots at Lexington and Concord and ends with a warning for today.

    The sun rose high and burnt the night away
    Who stood before me was my enemy- Don't tread on me
    He's come to take away my liberties
    I'd rather die than be a slave to thee-Don't treat me this way

    I'd rather die than be your slave
    I will survive, and you'll feel my rage
    It's not a question of being brave
    I'd just rather die than be your slave

    It did'nt matter who shot first that day
    They killed my brothers, they lay dead by me
    We hit them hard, we made them pay that day
    We hung the traitors from the highest tree

    Much time has past, we repeat history
    Our toys have changed while man has remained the same
    Evil in his ways
    Tribal families rule not over me
    I will not let them rape our liberties- We'll die for them today

    (There are more lyrics but this is a sampling)

    "I can see it in Your Eyes" from the same album

    I didn't want to hurt you
    I only speak because I care
    I only want to open up your eyes
    To what's out there
    Just don't be scared

    The winds they are a blowing
    Leavin nothing in it's tracks
    What is good is now called evil
    And now it's back, that mean 'ole Jack

    I can see it in your eyes
    You've been buying all their lies
    How do I get thru?
    Get thru to you

    Check out their website and videos

    They are big Ron Paul supporters also. This is thier newest video featuring Ron Pauls Message

    Hello Minuteman, Melbo and the rest of you on this thread....

    Thanks for checking out our tunes. We have made the trek down to the creek since fall 2000. At least once a year playing, usually at both shoots. Look for an article about the bi annual Knob Creek
    in a copy of our weekly favorite American first newspaper
    the American Free Press
    in the next couple of weeks

    If you dont mind I would like to post a few relevant videos from the Ed and Elaine Brown LIVE FREE OR DIE fest, as well as the other Ron Paul with Poker Face music video we have out and lastly me speaking at this past saturdays anti-Illegal Immigration rally in Lakewood, NJ...

    Wow! Thanks for stopping by Paul! I love your music and especially your message. Keep up the good work guys. And come back and see us again. You'll find a lot of freedom loving folks here at the "Monkey". We'll stop by and say hi at the Creek next time.

    I've been cruising around their web site. Pretty cool. They have a forum that has some interesting threads. A lot of the same things we talk about here. Check it out.

    I haven't found a video for one of my new favorite songs "Watchman". I love the lyrics and the sound is a lot more my style. By the way my 14 year old daughter loves them too. She thinks Rich is "hot".

    Re: Poker Face new Interview that came out today...

    It was done with a Portugese freedom lover F. Gonczalez.
    WARNING... it is a LONG read.
    But there is a link to a video of us playing in dc for the progressive democommies of Amerika event in 2005.
    This video contains a few our new tunes coming off of PEACE OR WAR.
    Before A N Y O N E says shizen about us playing at this event... remember this..... Christ didnt go to the healthy, he went to speak the WORD with the sick, the depraved, the possesed etc... Even democommies need to hear the truth and a big hug!! :)
    enjoy the music

    Just got this in a newsletter tonight. I don't think the guys would mind me sharing it here. They have a cool contest going on. Support Ron Paul and maybe win an autographed (by the band and RP) Poker Face CD.

    Dear Family, friends and fans.....

    Big big news this week.... We will be talking about
    Poker Face for Ron Paul 2008 Contest 1 day only for NOV 5<SUP>th</SUP>
    Bullet points of this newsletter

    <DIR><DIR>PF – Dr Ron Paul for prez 2008 contest / fundraiser
    Dr Paul coming to Philly Nov 10th
    Ron Paul TOOLS you can use…
    Our musical brother Carl Klang is back and with new music and videos
    Up coming Poker Face gigs.

    </DIR></DIR>1. For those of you who have never heard of Ron Paul, NOW IS THE TIME to find out about the ONLY pro-America first presidential candidate on the docket versus a bunch of GlobalCons who will bring you more of the same crap or worse if it is Hitlery!.

    Main Ron Paul site where you can go donate directly to the campaign

    November 5th has been designated D-Day as in DONATE 100$ Day to the Ron Paul campaign. There is a nationwide effort to raise $10 million dollars in ONE day. In accordance with the movie V, where the main character chooses that date, as the day to remember freedom, let us all send a very large and loud message tomorrow, by giving what ever $$’s funds you may have to his campaign.
    Go here to get a jist of it:
    YouTube- The 5th

    Money, and a LARGE quantity of it is the ONLY thing the dark side respects and most importantly REPORT ON. Last quarter Dr Paul was the 3rd largest fundraiser with $5 million dollars. The difference being that Dr Paul’s money comes from the ordinary common man with donations of under 200$ making up almost 50% of the donators… Translation means., Dr Paul’s campaign is being funded by the common person and not PACs and large corporations like the rest of the prostiticians.

    …In his own words, here is, I believe, the young man responsible for
    this valiant November 5 effort, Kevin Moore: "Tens of thousands of
    Americans from all over the world who support Congressman, Doctor and
    Presidential Candidate Ron Paul and his message of freedom, peace and
    prosperity have committed to donate to the Ron Paul For President
    campaign on Monday, November 5th.

    - Our contest that we are offering for tomorrow, and tomorrow only is this.
    Whatever sales come into poker face tomorrow thru midnight PST,

    We will donate half of all the monies that come thru PAYPAL, plus give away to the largest order purchaser a copy of MADE IN AMERICA signed by the good Dr Paul him self and the band. This L O N E signed copy of MADE IN AMERICA was gotten by our bassist Dennis, when he drove out to meet Dr Paul in Pittsburgh back on the 3rd of August. We have been waiting for just the right event to raise some extra funds for this great American.

    Freedom loving pro-Ron Paul friends that love Rock…

    Thanks for reposting this. Ron Paul has done well today... check it out here: why the repost... because it is very important that we not only meet the projected number of 10$ million, but blow past it, to shut up the nimrods on Faux News, Communist News Network, and other lamestream presstitutes saying that Dr Paul is only a net phenomena. Money is the ONLY thing these bastards respect. $12 million gets Dr Paul some leverage for buying air time. One huge bonus that the lamestram media toadies NEVER bring up, is that Dr Paul has REAL bodies in the streets, that he doesnt have to pay for their efforts. How many hundreds of millions of dollars does Dr Pauls campaign received because of ALL of our free will efforts.Things the GlobalCons have to pay for everything. A million dollars to Ron Paul in cash is like 10-20 million dollars of GlobalCon money. Click here to see where Ron Pauls Nov 5th hourly total... It is already fast approaching 5$. Anyone else that would like to be on our 0-3 emails a month newsletter, please email me your name and email address to peace pokerkid

    I saw them for the first time in the middle of a forest in TN - it was my kids' first concert and I reckon between burning the UN flag, firing off parachute flairs and starclusters and the sea of BDUs and black rifles - it was a good start.

    I also saw them on the mall in DC and again at a very poorly attended event in the Ozarks.

    Great band.
    Great guys.
    Outstanding Patriots.

    Ya gotta love the blue and white rag of a flag going up in smoke is such a beautiful thing to the eyes.
    paul aka pokerkid...

    PS Thanks for the kind words Monkey Man and DAN

    Here are some more PF videos, this time for Ron Pauls campaign... If Dr Paul is to win, he needs to get of his loser campaign manager LEW MOORE. If he doesnt, this POS in neocon clothes is purposefully, F-ing it up for the good Dr.

    Here is the most recent review from our brother

    Frank Whalen Host of Frankly Speaking Radio

    If America’s
    founding fathers themselves had the time and talent to raise musical alarms, it would probably have come close to the skillful and heartfelt outpourings of the unapologetic new offering from Pokerface. "Peace or War" comprises a snapshot of the United States
    today in context of the social and political machinations which have taken us to where we are now…and a sonic heads-up to stave off the decline that would sink America from the greatness of its ideals which have allowed its people to always reach for something better.

    With over 16 years of radio experience myself, I must confess, the mere existence of Pokerface is a commercial aberration. Truth and honesty have no place in radio. It just doesn’t sell. Most people use music as a distraction, a form of escapism, and have no use for the reflective nature of an auditory mirror that highlights a nation’s (and its peoples) failings.
    That Pokerface can continue to move forward,
    growing and advancing with each album, is a ray of hope in a darkened
    world. Not only can we ascertain that there are countless fans (and I count myself proudly among them) who gain sustenance from such genuineness, but the notion of such raw emotion so courageously displayed by Pokerface so constantly, personally, is a comfort to
    me, knowing that they are out there rocking in the free world. For me, for you and for freedom.

    While "Peace or War" is accessible to all music lovers of
    all ages and all demographics, there should be a caveat included here. Pokerface is not gentle; Not even remotely. From the artistic mastery with which these patriotic warriors wield their weapons of aural combat, comes the nagging and uncomfortable reminder that there are things that must be discussed, mental struggles still to be fought, wrongs that must be righted. That there are still tasks to be done before all Americans can finally rest their weary heads knowing that at long last, the "Peace" spoken of in the album’s title has finally been achieved-
    the internal and external peace that is a spiritual imperative inherent in all humanity. They offer up the ultimate warning, the alternative, in the same album title. Fearlessly, the beautiful rage of "Peace or
    War" will keep those with ears to hear, honest, awake and aware.

    Frank Whalen

    So folks, we hope to hear back from you. We hope several of you will come out to our show. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas

    From all of us at Poker Face God bless you all.
