Harassing Phone Calls

Posted March 22nd, 2014 by Julie

UPDATE:  It’s been over a year since the harassing phone calls started and this post was created.  But the calls have started up again.  If you are receiving unwanted phone calls claiming to be from NE Tarrant Tea Party, please read the message below!

***************************

Someone is harassing NE Tarrant Tea Party — and they are harassing many others in the process. They’ve been making calls all weekend to folks not even in Texas (and in some cases not even in the USA) and told them to go to our website. Most people have been called multiple times and in the middle of the night.

Please be aware that NETTP has not made any calls, and if we were to make calls they would only be to folks in Tarrant County, Texas. They would NOT be at midnight, they would come from our PAC, and they would follow the legal guidelines for robocalls, including a statement about where the calls are coming from.

When we give out our web address, we don’t even state it in the way that was used in the robocall.  We abbreviate NE.

We are very sorry that partisan politics has stooped to this level.  We are working with our US Congressmen and our State Attorney General, as well as the media, the TX Ethics Commission, the Federal Elections Commission, and the Federal Trade Commission, to get to the bottom of this.  We are told this could likely be investigated at the Federal level because it crosses both state and international lines.

Here is a link to an article on the situation that Breitbart Texas ran.  And you can click the image below for an interview with NBC 5.

Hundreds of you have helped us by providing us with information about the calls you have received.  We are using it to try to track down the person who initiated the calls.  Thank you for that.  Please know we now have plenty of data!

Again, we are very sorry someone would actually pay money for robocalls to hurt their fellow citizens.  On the bright side, if you have interest in our tea party, we welcome you.  :-)

Marchant & Burgess Doing Some Fancy Footwork

Posted August 26th, 2015 by Julie

My friends and fellow patriots,
It shames me to once again have to illustrate for you how Tarrant County — the most conservative county in the most conservative state in the Union — has such weak Congressmen.  Why are they?  If they were bold and strong for conservative causes, they would be lauded as heroes!  They do have the conservative base to back them up.  They should be LEADING the way.  They’d get huge applause everywhere they go!  Tons of accolades and thank yous!  And you all know that’s true because it’s exactly how it goes for great electeds like Stickland and Cruz.  They listen to the people, they do the right thing, and they are rewarded richly for it.  Why won’t Burgess or Marchant EVER take a stand???

And has there ever been a more obvious reason to take a stand?  I mean, look at the conservative causes the US House has championed…

Yep.  Nothing.  Isn’t it time for a new leader?  If EVER there was a time to vacate the chair, this is it! Scroll all the way to the end of this email and I’ll list for you again the terrible things they DID manage to do.

And yet…  Below is a list of excuses given by Burgess and Marchant for not supporting the Meadow’s resolution to Vacate the Chair.  I’ve included why they don’t hold water.

  • No one has come out and put their name forward.  There is no consensus on anyone coming forward.  A Motion to Vacate is not an election!  Technically, there is no speaker at the time each new Congress begins, and yet they always manage to elect one.    A Motion to Vacate relates only to whether the current speaker is doing a good job and should be able to retain their position.  Once that decision is determined, a speaker election would then be held and at that time representatives would put their names forward.  Consensus on the next speaker would then be hashed out in caucus.
  • There is no one prepared or capable of becoming new speaker.  Republican leadership is supposed to prepare future leaders.  If out of 245 Republicans there is not one other person that could replace Boehner, then he has failed to prepare future Republican leadership.  We need to vacate the chair.
  • Conservatives would end up with a more moderate pick, maybe even Pelosi.  In order for this to happen, Republican Congressmen would have to vote for it.  Who is going to do that?  Name some names?  And even if they did (which they won’t), there simply would need to be a new motion to vacate.
  • There are no votes from the Conservative Caucus for the motion to vacate.  There are numerous individuals who have officially pledged support of the Motion to Vacate.
  • I have a good relationship with Boehner.  I’ll ask him to be more conservative.  Bwahahahahahahaha!!!  That will work, I’m sure.
  • This is not the proper way to do it.  Actually, this is exactly the way our government was set up to handle exactly this situation.  If this is not proper, why does the method even exist?  Was it intended to never be used?
  • It should be done in caucus.  Are you going to propose it?  No?  Why not?  Even when there WAS a caucus meeting, our Congressmen STILL did not support ousting Boehner.
  • Wait until 2017.  The process for replacing the speaker in 2017 is no different than doing it now.

…ALL EXCUSES!!!

Why do we want a new speaker? 
We want someone who will not punish those who vote with their constituents, someone who will include conservatives in the process, and someone who does not block conservative amendments or legislation.  Firing Boehner will send a message to everyone that there are the votes to fire any speaker who fails to do at least better than John Boehner.

At the end of the day, the vacate motion is about one thing – do you think John Boehner is doing a good jobCongressmen who vote against vacating are saying, “Yes, John Boehner is doing a good job, and I think he should be Speaker of the House.”

If your representative believes Boehner is doing a good job, challenge him to list Boehner’s legislative accomplishments and how they have advanced conservative principles and not Obama’s agenda. If any representative cannot show how John Boehner is doing a good job, then they must vote to vacate.  It is just that simple.  Anything else is irrelevant and an attempt to side-step the issue.

The August recess is nearly over.  Put the pressure on Marchant and Burgess to do the right thing.

Local Congressmen:
Kenny Marchant – 972-556-0162
Michael Burgess – 940-497-5031
Kay Granger – 817-338-0909
Joe Barton – 817-543-1000

All Other Congressmen:

Get to it!

Warm regards,
Julie McCarty
President, NE Tarrant Tea Party

PS.  By the way, it is highly unlikely that Planned Parenthood will be defunded if Boehner is not fired.

Under Boehner we’ve seen…
• Republicans refuse to defund or repeal Obamacare and in fact willingly fund the entire law
• a willingness to fully fund Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty programs
• a top-down education bill that refused to allow states to opt out of costly and ineffective federal mandates
• a “doc fix” bill that not only adds $500 billion to the debt and an overt attempt by Republicans to refuse to cut spending elsewhere to pay for that new debt
• a reauthorization for tax payer funding of Amtrak
• voting against a balanced budget plan
• a refusal to reduce Department of Energy spending back to 2008 levels
• a refusal to bring forward the First Amendment Defense Act to protect religious liberty
• a refusal to bring forward the Transportation Empowerment Act to turn over transportation decisions to the states
• confirming as Attorney General someone who refuses to uphold the Constitution
• attaching an entitlement welfare program for leftist labor unions to a trade authority vote
• attempting to revive corporate welfare through the Export-Import Bank
• bailing out a failed big government wasteful highway program
• refusing to seriously attempt to defund Planned Parenthood while trying to trick us with near meaningless show votes so they can pretend they are taking action
• refusing once again to repeal Obamacare in this fall’s budget
• and all of this topped off with leadership who either blatantly lies to conservatives in private caucus meetings or from the Senate floor itself or which targets and tries to punish those Republicans who decide listening to their constituents and upholding conservatives principles instead of doing exactly what John Boehner or Mitch McConnell order them to do.

NE Tarrant Tea Party is hosting Shark Tank 2!

APPLY NOW

There are dozens of conservative candidates hoping to oust some left-leaning incumbents from the TX State House this Primary Election.  Should we support them?  Do they have what it takes to win?  Will they stand strong once elected?  This is your chance to interview them and decide for yourself if they are worthy of your hard-earned money!

Our first shark tank was such a huge success, we will be hosting Shark Tank 2 with a new batch of 12 candidates during an all-day event on Saturday, October 10.  You’ll have a chance to hear their stories, learn their positions, dive into their strategy plan, and do YOUR part to support them.

APPLY NOW

Here’s what others said about our first shark tank event…

I was really impressed with Shark Tank! I went with intentions of only supporting our District 58 candidate, Philip Eby, but after hearing the candidates– I supported 4 more out of my district! I wished that I could have helped all of them!

 

I loved it. The chemistry of the attendees and candidates was awesome. Speakers were dynamic. This type of early funding is so critical at this stage for candidates to give them the necessary momentum to get off the ground to be competitive. I think these early Shark Tanks could eventually become game changer for state politics.”

You must apply to attend, as we must be sure only true conservatives are in the audience.  Once your application is accepted, we’ll share with you the venue and time.

APPLY NOW

Bring your checkbook!  Only those who are ready to financially donate to campaigns are eligible to participate.  It doesn’t matter how much you plan to donate, but you ARE expected to be prepared to donate in any amount to at least a few candidates.

Posted July 29th, 2015 by Julie

I think we all agree that the churches of America must engage in the political process if we are to preserve our nation.  Our speaker for September is working on just that thing — mobilizing pastors in the 5 key states conservatives must win to defeat Hillary.  He believes Christians must vote and pastors can and must push their members to be faithful at the polls.  His message to us includes in-depth details of where we’re at and where we’re headed.  It’s a life-changing message!

Posted July 7th, 2015 by Julie

Where: First Baptist Grapevine

301 E. Texas St., Grapevine 76051
