March 9: Know Your Rights

Posted April 26th, 2014 by Rick

Our rights cannot be denied, right?  Well, wrong if nobody stands up for them.  And if nobody even knows what their rights are, how can they protect and preserve them?  Most of the time when our rights are being stepped on, it’s an unexpected situation and we are totally unprepared with how to respond.  Do you have to answers the questions a police officer asks?  Do you have to hand over any personal possessions he asks for?  What happens if you say no to a Breathalyzer test?  Do you have to allow them to search your body or your vehicle?  If they ask you to get into the police car, must you?  Under what circumstances can law enforcement enter your home — and what are they allowed to do once they get inside?  Maybe we have the right to remain silent, but when is it best to do so and when is it best to speak up?  Can CPS really come and take your kids away just based on an accusation from an outsider?  What are my free speech rights in the public square?  Can they be limited?  And how about election sites?  What free speech is allowed there?  Can they relegate me to a back corner of the far parking lot?  There are more and more examples every day of rights being ignored.  Come learn what you have the right to!

About Tony McDonald:


Tony McDonald serves as General Counsel to Empower Texans.

A licensed and practicing attorney, Tony graduated from The University of Texas School of Law with his J.D. and passed the Texas bar exam in 2012. Before attending law school, Tony graduated in 2008 from The University of Texas with a degree in Economics and Government. He then went to work during the 81st Texas Legislature as a Legislative Aide for State Representative Wayne Christian. In his role as Legislative Aide, Tony specialized in parliamentary procedure and identifying points-of-order on targeted legislation. After law school, Tony returned to the Capitol to serve as Chief of Staff to State Representative Jonathan Stickland during the 83rd Texas Legislature. In that role, he helped propel Representative Stickland to prominence as one of the boldest conservative voices in the Texas Capitol.

Tony got involved in politics in 2005 as a freshman at the University of Texas when he joined Young Conservatives of Texas. As a sophomore he led the YCT chapter at UT as Chapter Chairman, growing the chapter’s membership while conducting national headline grabbing activism. After serving his term as Chapter Chairman, Tony was appointed to YCT’s state board, first serving as Vice Chairman for Chapter Development and then as Senior Vice Chairman for Legislative Affairs. In that role, he helped organize YCT’s candidate interviews and endorsements and led YCT in creating its legislative agenda and carrying out its lobbying efforts for the 81st and 82nd Texas Legislatures. Following each session he led a team of members in developing YCT’s legislative ratings. Through his years with Young Conservatives of Texas, Tony has volunteered on numerous campaigns and served as a delegate to three Republican state conventions.

While attending UT, Tony proudly helped cohost a local political talk radio show, Down Ballot Radio, along with two liberal and moderate friends. The show specialized in hard-hitting coverage of local and state politics and lampooning Austin mayoral twitter feeds.

Tony resides in Austin and attends St. Paul Lutheran Church. In his spare time he enjoys mixology and smoking meats on his Big Green Egg. Tony can be followed on Twitter through his handle, @tweettonymac.

About Trevor Louden:


From Christchurch New Zealand, Trevor Loudon has been researching the radical left for more than 30 years.
Loudon has interviewed many people from both sides of the struggle over the years to former Western intelligence offices, to government undercover operatives inside the communist movement, to former KGB officers. This research has given Loudon unique insight into how extensively often miniscule communist parties have been able to manipulate, and even control policy formation in many Western countries – particularly the “main enemy” the United States of America. Loudon’s research shows that this is not just a historical problem, but is a very real issue, threatening America’s national security, and indeed very survival, right up to the present day.

In March 2007, Loudon discovered the long hidden relationship between notorious Hawaiian Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and the young Barack Obama. After a year’s research into Obama’s ties to the New York and Chicago Marxist movements, Loudon began publishing his research online in January 2008.  Soon his work was being quoted by Accuracy in Media, countless bloggers and Glenn Beck.

In 2009 Loudon exposed the communist roots of Obama “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones. After an extensive campaign by Glenn Beck and others, Jones was forced to resign from his White House position.

Since 2011 Loudon has toured the United States promoting his two books “Barack Obama and the Enemies Within” and “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress” – an extensively footnoted expose of the rapidly unfolding Marxist takeover of the United States government.

Loudon has addressed more than 300 conservative, tea party, religious and Republican groups in more than 30 states. He believes that if America should fall, so will every Western nation, including his beloved New Zealand.

But truly… more important than any of that… 

this event supports the NE Tarrant Tea Party PAC!




Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

No.  Everyone is welcome as long as they purchase a ticket.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Use the map on the right to find the home.  Once you arrive, free valet parking is offered.  Pull into the circle drive, and the valet service will take it from there!  The valet service has been generously donated by Elizabeth Zeitlin, candidate for Colleyville City Council.


What can/can’t I bring to the event?

Bring yourself, friends and family.  Feel free to bring a camera.  Please, no food or drink brought into the event.


Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?



What is the refund policy?

All tickets are non-refundable.  If you find you cannot use your ticket, please find someone to give or sell it to.


Do I get to meet Allen West?

You are guaranteed to meet Allen West if you purchase a VIP Reception ticket.  Otherwise, it’s hard to say.  Maybe, maybe not.  But you’ll definitely get to hear him speak.


A live band?  Cool!  Who is it?

Will Hobbs & The Cropdusters will play country hits from the 70s and 80s.  You can listen to a short clip of their cover of Livin’ on Tulsa Time by clicking here.  The band is generously donated by Mark Assaad, candidate for Grapevine-Colleyville ISD Board.  And yes, there is a dance floor.  Wear your boots!

Is there a dress code for this event?

Come as you are, but country western attire is more fun!


How does the Cook-Off work?

There are five categories being judged:  chicken, ribs, brisket, beans, and dessert.  And there are two awards per category —  the People’s Choice Award and the Dignataries Award.  All guests will have the opportunity to eat, but only judges get to sample all of the options.


What are the prizes for the Cook-Off?

Dignataries: trophies for Grand Champion and 2nd Place in the 3 meat categories; trophies for 1st place in beans and in dessert; NETTP t-shirts for 2nd place in beans and in dessert

Can I be a judge?

To be a judge for the People’s Choice Award, you buy a $45 ticket instead of a $40.  That puts your name in the drawing to be a judge.  Nine people will be randomly selected to be People’s Choice judges.


How do I sign up to compete in the cookoff?



What is required of those who compete in the cookoff? 

For the meat competition, each cook needs to bring:

  • 6 full chickens
  • 5 racks of ribs
  • 2 briskets

Meat contestants receive a general admission ticket for free.  Smokers fire up at noon; guests eat at 6:30.  Any prep work needing to be done prior to noon should be done before arriving.

When arriving with trailers, plan to bring your smallest as the curve into the driveway can be cumbersome.  Alternatively, the trailer can be unhitched and pulled down the driveway manually.


Is this an outdoor event?  What if it rains?

If it rains, the show still goes on!  The food will be moved to the barn, tents will go up, and there is room inside the house as well.


Will alcohol be served?

VIP ticket holders get 2 free drink tickets.  General Admission ticket holders get 1 free drink ticket.  Additional drinks can be purchased for $3 each.  The bartender and bar has been generously donated by Bobby Lindamood, Jr., candidate for Colleyville City Council Place 6.

Urgent Need for Calls Nationwide Regarding US House Speaker Race!

Posted January 5th, 2015 by Julie



You’ve probably heard that Speaker Boehner is being challenged in his re-election bid.  That’s great news!  Texas’ own Louie Gohmert, a tea party favorite, is one of those who has stepped up to run against him.  But if you’re like me, you have little knowledge of how this process works, so I’ll share what I’ve learned in a crash course!

First of all, Gohmert is a hero. Win or lose, he is taking one for the team.  His candidacy means that no Congressman can use the excuse that there was no one else but Boehner to vote for.  And just in case that’s not enough, another Congressman, Rep Yoho who is more moderate than Gohmert, has also stepped up, which means no one can say Gohmert is too conservative and therefore they had to vote for Boehner.  See how all the bases are covered now?  No excuses from our Congressmen!

Wait… there’s one more excuse they may make… “The challengers didn’t announce in caucus so it’s too late.”  That doesn’t hold water.  The procedure legitimately allows for new names to be thrown into the ring up until the vote is taken, and that makes them viable options.   To vote for Boehner at this point means one thing:  you wanted to vote for Boehner.  Period.

The voting works like this…  You have to have an absolute majority to win.  Right now that is 218 votes.  (That 218 goes down every time someone votes ‘present’ but does not vote for a specific person).  If no one gets an absolute majority, new nominations are made and we start all over.  I’m told that one time in the 1800s it took something like 126 ballots to get a winner!

So the goal is to keep Boehner (and Pelosi) from getting to 218. 

Pelosi will only get to 188 because that’s how many Democrats are in the House.

If we can find 29 Republicans to vote against Boehner (doesn’t matter who they vote for… Gohmert or Yoho or anyone else who throws their name in at the last minute except for Pelosi), then this will go to a second round of voting.

Did you catch that?  Unless Boehner makes a deal with the Democrats, we only need 29 votes against him to keep the dream alive.  We currently have anywhere from 10-20 from the best guesses folks are making, and that number changes constantly.

The vote is Tuesday.  That doesn’t give us a lot of time.

Please contact your Congressman.  In fact, please have every concerned American you know contact their own Congressman as well.  Here’s a list of EVERY Congressman with phone number (and some notes on where some of them stand, but again, it changes quickly).  SHARE THIS LIST!

Remember, we only have a little over one day!  Calls must be made now!  Ask your Congressman to vote against Boehner.

Jan 7: Rinaldi vs Villalba on Turner vs Straus

Posted December 31st, 2014 by Julie


Matt Rinaldi vs. Jason Villalba on the Texas Speaker’s Race

As you likely know, Texas House Speaker Joe Straus is being challenged by Rep. Scott Turner.  Even in Tarrant County, our State Reps who used to be united on this vote are now divided.  Reps. Stickland, Krause, Zedler, Klick and Tinderholt all support the challenger, while Reps. Capriglione and Goldman have switched sides this session to support the incumbent.

What are the issues?  What is right for Texas?  Come find out!

Already know your choice?  Come support your team!


For incumbent Joe Straus:  Jason Villalba

For challenger Scott Turner:  Matt Rinaldi

Moderator:  Mark Davis

Wednesday, January 7, at 7pm

Southern Methodist University, Hughes-Trigg Student Center

3140 Dyer, Dallas TX  75275

This event will be live-streamed, and a link will be posted here when available.  But being there in person to show support is important.  Join us if you can!

An event page has been created on Facebook.  If you are planning to attend, please click here to rsvp.  An rsvp is not required, but it is helpful for promoting the event.

bedford 121310

NETTP outside State Rep Todd Smith’s office protesting his vote for Joe Straus — hmm… he’s gone too!




NETTP joined with patriots across the state to pray while the Speaker vote was actually happening (in caucus). Prayers continue until we have a fair Speaker who represents the people of Texas well.

2014 Survey Results

Posted December 27th, 2014 by Julie

survey says


Big thank yous to all those who participated in our recent survey.  Your answers were completely anonymous.  Here’s what you’re telling us…

  • Some of you are involved in every way possible — meetings, emails, facebook, twitter.  Others do one but not the others.  So we have different audiences, and that’s great.  It really expands our reach.
  • 82% of you support Scott Turner for Speaker of the Texas House.  Not one soul supports Joe Straus, though a small handful said they’d just trust whatever their Rep decides.
  • 65% think any Rep who votes for Joe Straus should be replaced – no excuses.  28% don’t like it, but will watch what the Rep accomplishes during the rest of the session before making a decision about replacing the Rep.
  • We deliberately did not give you options to choose from in listing what our priorities should be because we didn’t want to influence your input.  There were lots of great ideas, but far and away the #1 priority is immigration and border control.  Nothing else even came close.  Next concern was open carry, followed by a conservative budget, and then education fixes.
  • Y’all shared some ideas for guest speakers and want to hear from Ted Cruz, Presidential candidates, and statewide elected officials like Abbott, Patrick and Paxton.  We’ll see what we can do!
  • You were very generous with your accolades for our group, and we appreciate that!  You love our leadership team, our communication, the way we keep you informed/educated on key issues, and how organized our group is.  Thank you!  That means a lot and motivates us to carry on!
  • Of course every group could use some improvement.  You’d like to see us grow, find a permanent location, and offer more ways to volunteer.  (We have to admit that last one is frustrating — we’re always begging for volunteers!!!).  But the growth and location… we’re working on it.  :-)  Lots of plans for the new year!  Suggestions are welcome!
  • And about that growth…  90% of you think it’s a good idea for us to expand our influence.  Nearly 50% of you will help that effort financially.  Now that’s putting your money where your mouth is!  We’ll be doing some fundraising this year, and we’ll share more about that with you soon.

For now, enjoy this festive time of year, and be ready to kick things into full gear come January!  Again, big thank yous to all who participated in our survey.  We don’t know who did or did not take the time to do so, but we appreciate you!
