NETTP PAC

Thank you for supporting the efforts of the NETTP PAC in Tarrant County! 

Giving above and beyond is always appreciated.  :-)

 

FAQs
Can I purchase tickets by mail or in person?

Yes, but please note that tickets purchased via mail or in person are not confirmed until you receive an email confirmation.  When you order, you must include your first and last name, email address, address, phone, occupation, and employer.  Mail your check payable to NETTP PAC to 703 Peach Ct, Grapevine TX  76051.  If you want to pay in person, you can do so at our NETTP meeting on Sept 8.

 

How will the money that is raised be used?

This is a fundraiser for the NE Tarrant Tea Party PAC.  It’s a separate entity from NE Tarrant Tea Party, but we work hand-in-hand on local issues.  While funds donated to NE Tarrant Tea Party are used for things like renting meeting space, making copies of flyers we pass out, etc, funds donated to the NETTP PAC go towards supporting candidates and issues.  The tea party cannot legally campaign, but the PAC can.  So we have to raise separate funds for the two groups.  100% of the profits from this fundraiser will be used to promote local candidates in the 2016 election.

 

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

No.  All patriots of any age are welcome.

 

Do I need to purchase a ticket for my child?

Children 16 and under are free (except for the dinner).  Just show up!

 

Do I have to pay online?

Yes, for now.  With an event this size it is just easier to have all reservations compiled in one place.  Plus, some of the registration information is legally required since we are a PAC.  If we register only online, we know that all attendees have provided the appropriate info.  Thank you for understanding!

If you attend the NE Tarrant Tea Party meeting on Sept 8, you may pay via check or cash in person and fill out the form there.  If you cannot be at the meeting and want to pay by cash or check, email heyjuliesue@gmail.com.

 

What is the dress code for this event?

Come as you are!  This is an outdoor event, so dress for a hot summer night! We suspect folks will be in all sorts of various attire, from super casual to business suits and everything inbetween.

 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, we will have your name on a list at the entry with the number of tickets you purchased.

 

What is the refund policy?

Because the money is going to a PAC, no refunds can be given.  If you are unable to use your ticket, please sell or donate it to someone who can!  No point in wasting it!

 

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes.  Just give the name at the door of the person whose name the ticket(s) is/are under.

 

Why is the price of the ticket so high?  I can’t afford that!

We tried to offer tickets at a variety of prices to make sure everyone could participate at some level, while at the same time make the most money possible for our PAC.  Tickets range from $25 to $50 to $250.  Most everything NETTP does is offered for free so that anyone is able to participate, but the PAC is different.  The PAC requires funds for publicizing our endorsements.

 

Is this event in someone’s home?

Yes.  The owners are excited to be able to offer it to us for our use.  Please be respectful and treat it better than your own!

 

Where do I park?

The home has a long, circle drive for guests to be dropped off if desired.  Then the driver will need to go north out of the driveway and park in the neighborhood across the street.  It will require a short walk to get to the party.  We’ll have signs out pointing you in the right direction!  We may even recruit a driver or two to run people back and forth.

 

Will there be food and drinks served at this event?

There will be food served at the dinner, of course.  The reception will have hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks.  At the main event, bottles of water will be available only.

 

If I buy a ticket, am I guaranteed dinner?

Yes.  We are only selling 12 tickets, so everyone who buys a dinner ticket gets dinner with Joe.  Seating assignments will be made based on who reserves their seats first.  The first person will be right next to Joe, the second will be on his other side, the third/fourth/fifth will be directly across from him, etc.

 

Will Sheriff Arpaio be addressing the crowd?  Will I have a chance to meet him?

The best chance to interact with Sheriff Arpaio will be at the more intimate dinner.  At the reception, guests will get to take a photo with the Sheriff, and limited conversation can happen during that time.  Sheriff Arpaio will speak for one hour during the main event.  Whether he mingles with the crowd afterwards is entirely up to him!

 

What are the pink boxers all about???

Sheriff Joe is famous for the pink boxers his male prisoners are provided to wear!  He says it keeps inmates from stealing them.  He has a charity formed to keep youth out of trouble, and the pink boxers are his fundraiser for that organization.  Everyone who goes to the dinner and/or the reception gets a pair of boxers thrown in!  Guests at the main event will have the opportunity to purchase a pair for $20.  ($10 goes to Joe’s charity, and $10 goes to NETTP PAC).

What else can you tell me about Sheriff Joe?

Joe Arpaio

About Sheriff Joe Arpaio

You probably know him as “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” a name given to him years ago by the media. It’s a name he certainly has earned as head of the nation’s third largest Sheriff’s Office which employs over 3400 people. But even before he became Sheriff in 1993, Joe Arpaio was one tough lawman. After serving in the U.S. Army from 1950 to 1953, and as a Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas, NV, police officer for almost five years, Arpaio went on to build a federal law enforcement career and a reputation for fighting crime and drug trafficking around the world.

He began his career as a federal narcotics agent, establishing a stellar record in infiltrating drug organizations from Turkey to the Middle East to Mexico, Central, and South America to cities around the U.S. His expertise and success led him to top management positions around the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). He concluded his remarkable federal career as head of the DEA for Arizona.

In 1992, Arpaio successfully campaigned to become the Sheriff of Maricopa County. Since then he has been reelected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms. During his tenure as Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arpaio has consistently earned high public approval ratings.

With over five decades experience in law enforcement, Arpaio knows what the public wants, “The public is my boss,” he says, “so I serve the public.” He has served them well by establishing several unique programs.

Arpaio has between 7500 – 10,000 inmates in his jail system. In August, 1993, he started the nation’s largest Tent City for convicted inmates. Two thousand convicted men and women serve their sentences in a canvas incarceration compound. It is a remarkable success story that has attracted the attention of government officials, presidential candidates, and media worldwide.

Of equal success and notoriety are his chain gangs, which contribute thousands of dollars of free labor to the community. The male chain gang, and the world’s first-ever female and juvenile chain gangs, clean streets, paint over graffiti, and bury the indigent in the county cemetery.

Also impressive are the Sheriff’s get tough policies. For example, he banned smoking, coffee, movies, pornographic magazines, and unrestricted TV in all jails. He has the cheapest meals in the U.S. too. The average meal costs between 15 and 40 cents, and inmates are fed only twice daily, to cut the labor costs of meal delivery. He even stopped serving them salt and pepper to save tax payers $20,000 a year.

Another program Arpaio is very well known for is the pink underwear he makes all inmates wear. Years ago, when the Sheriff learned that inmates were stealing jailhouse white boxers, Arpaio had all inmate underwear dyed pink for better inventory control. The same is true for the Sheriff’s handcuffs. When they started disappearing, he ordered pink handcuffs as a replacement.

Arpaio has started another controversial program on the website WWW.MCSO.org. Mugshots of all those arrested (about 300 per day) are posted on the Sheriff’s website as they are booked and processed into jail. Just under a million hits daily come into the website, making it one of the most visible law enforcement sites on the internet.

In addition to these tough measures, the Sheriff has launched rehabilitative programs like “Hard Knocks High,” the only accredited high school under a Sheriff in an American jail, and ALPHA, an anti-substance-abuse program that has greatly reduced recidivism.

As chief law enforcement officer for the county, Arpaio continues to reduce crime with hard-hitting enforcement methods. His deputies and detectives have solved several high-profile murder cases, including numerous child murders. The posse, whose ranks have increased to 3,000 members under Arpaio, is the nation’s largest volunteer posse. Posse men and women help in search and rescue and other traditional police work as well as in special operations like rounding up deadbeat parents, fighting prostitution, patrolling malls during holidays, and investigating animal cruelty complaints. The posse’s contributions are invaluable and essentially free to taxpayers.

No wonder Sheriff Arpaio has been profiled in over 4500 U.S. and foreign newspapers, magazines, and TV news programs. His leadership and the excellent work of his staff have catapulted the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office into the ranks of elite law enforcement agencies.

On a personal note, Sheriff Arpaio and his wife Ava have been married for over 56 years and have two children, both residing in the Phoenix area. The Arpaios have four grandchildren.

Arpaio looks forward to many more years as Sheriff of Maricopa County.

New AP High School Curriculum Says America Is Bad

Posted August 4th, 2014 by Julie
67074_10200282134729610_158
The College Board controls the national AP (Advanced Placement) U. S. history curriculum.  This AP course for US History will indoctrinate Texas’ students with a negative view of history.   If a school district offers Advanced Placement history, it is changing to the revised curriculum for the 2014-2015 school year.
 Bill Ames has provided us with a sample letter we can each send to every ISD Board member in our districts to recommend they postpone implementation.

Dear School Board member,

There is growing national concern about the implementation of the College Board’s Advanced Placement U. S. history curriculum (APUSH Curriculum Framework).

It is my understanding that this framework is being implemented in (school district) for the 2014-2015 school year. AP teachers are attending seminars to prepare them to teach the course.

However, there are serious issues with the course.  The following is a sampling of what our nation’s brightest high-school students can expect:

  • A relentlessly negative view of American history, which emphasizes every problem and failing of our ancestors while ignoring or minimizing their achievements
  • Almost total silence about the Founding Fathers, including no mention of Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, and Adams, and almost none of the Declaration of Independence
  • Omission of military history, battles, commanders, and heroes
  • A biased and inaccurate view of many important facets of American history, including the motivations and actions of 17th-19th-century settlers, American involvement in World War II, and the conduct of and victory in the Cold War.

Further information can be reviewed at:

I recommend that the Board postpone the implementation of this course until your curriculum development staff can certify that the lessons taught in this course are compliant with the SBOE-adopted Texas social studies TEKS.

Signed,
[Your name here]
School district resident

Texas Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security

Posted August 4th, 2014 by Julie

L06 Laredo - fishermen

The Texas House Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security is meeting tomorrow, Tuesday morning (Aug 5) at 9am.  One of their agenda items is the border crisis.

It is important for grassroots activists to speak out NOW.  Be aware that our legislators are not informed on this topic.  JoAnn Fleming of Grassroots America put it this way,

“After speaking with several legislators, I cannot stress enough how important it is for them to hear from us and for us to get on the public record.
A friendly legislator told me this weekend that the privileged (classified) reports they are getting PROVE we are right, but he says “you guys are way ahead of the legislators” on this one.  There is no daily conversation about this among legislators – no visible sense of business urgency to present a plan to protect the life, liberty and property of Texans.  This means it will be up to US – the grassroots TEA party conservative movement to rally the people and push for lasting solutions – not dog and pony shows and band-aids.”
Several grassroots leaders will be at Tuesday’s meeting to testify.  We know most activists are not able to be there, but we can still make our voice heard.  Here is a list of the committee members you need to contact before 5pm TODAY (click their name to go to an online contact form):
Joe Pickett, Chair
Allen Fletcher, Vice Chair
Philip Cortez
Tony Dale
Dan Flynn
Tim Kleinschmidt
George Lavender
Kenneth Sheets
Ron Simmons
Please scroll through this photo story to get ideas for talking points, especially about the humanitarian issue.  Or just let them know that you expect Texas to move quickly to turn off the magnets, cover more of the border than just the RGV sector, and keep illegals detained at the border and not moved to the interior of the US.  (What’s wrong with a tent city???)
NOTE:  After you click “send message” on the links to the Representatives above, you will be taken to another screen where you have to click “send message” again before the message will be sent.

Aug 11: Crisis on the Border

Posted July 31st, 2014 by Julie

With so many conflicting stories on the border crisis, how can you know what to believe?  Well, you ask the one without an agenda or a campaign to run!  Brandon Darby is just that guy.  Remember when news reporters were the nation’s watchdogs (you know, before the Left took ‘em over)?  Brandon is the Managing Director of Breitbart Texas and has been reporting the truth from the border for a year and a half, long before it became all the rage.  He’s got the details to share with us — what’s really happening, what is and isn’t working, and what you can do to help.  We also invited our three area Congressional Representatives since they are home for the August townhall season:  Kenny Marchant, Michael Burgess and Kay Granger.  Burgess will be joining us; Marchant declined; no response yet from Granger.

SPECIAL UPDATE!!!  Because this topic is of utmost importance, we have invited other area groups to join us!  Please welcome the EIGHT groups listed below!  Unity amongst our groups is so crucial, and we are honored to host our neighboring patriots.  And this means we need a special venue to hold all these great Americans!  Take note of the new location…

About Brandon Darby:

Brandon Michael Darby is an activist who rose to international recognition for his role in co-founding and directing the Common Ground Relief organization in New Orleans’ 9th Ward in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Though once a prominent radical who worked with former Black Panther Party members, Palestinian and various other radical groups, his experiences led him to have a deep love for his country and to feel an obligation to support and protect its system. He once again gained international recognition for his role as an undercover operative in the FBI’s Informant/Human Source Program, working with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and having directly participated in stopping violence against U.S. and Israeli citizens. Furthermore, his public stance of being proud to have served with the FBI and his refusal to be silent and enter the Witness Protection Program has been a source of controversy and outrage amongst radical Leftist groups.

His work and efforts have been profiled in hundreds of print, radio, and television interviews. He has been a subject of numerous documentaries.

He currently resides in his home state of Texas and continues with his passion to investigate and expose groups and individuals who intend harm to the United States, though he now does so as a private citizen and as Managing Director for Breitbart Texas.

NE Tarrant Tea Party’s Trip to the Border

Posted July 30th, 2014 by Julie

Breitbart Texas media took 9 grassroots leaders on a “real” tour of the Texas/Mexico border. This was not the tour politicians and those watching TV see — this was the down and dirty truth of what’s really going on. The goal was for us to come home and tell the people the truth so that we can know how to approach our legislators, both state and federal. Please view these photos and take the time to read the captions to get the full story…  CLICK HERE.

After you are done reading, please share it with others!  If this problem is to be solved, it will only be done by the persistent pressure of grassroots activists.

The Border Situation and What YOU Can Do

Posted July 11th, 2014 by Julie

Illegal_Alien-dd13

Activists and concerned citizens all around the country are asking me what they can do to help stop the invasion of illegals into our country.  I’ve put together a few ideas.  There are tons of other good ideas floating around out there, but this can get you started…

ALL levels of government must be addressed…

Local: Talk to your city council & mayor. Find out where they stand in terms of inviting the illegals to your city. If they appear at all wishy-washy, it might be a good idea to gather some folks to speak at your next council meeting against it. I have a resolution you can present and ask them to sign, but only ask after they hear from a bunch of citizens on why it is so important (email heyjuliesue@gmail.com for the resolution). Click for contact info for NE Tarrant cities, or google your own city.

County: I spoke with Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley and County Commissioner Gary Fickes. They were pretty strongly on our side and don’t expect any of our cities to welcome the illegals. We do have a military base the Feds could use without any permissions, but I’m told it’s already pretty crowded.  The county will make plans to handle it if that happens. If you don’t live in Tarrant County, I recommend having a similar conversation with your County Judge and Commissioner(s). I have a resolution a county could sign off on if interested.

State: To date, Perry has not been the strong voice we need. He’s very capable of taking a strong stance, but he’s apparently not willing. I’m praying for him to have wisdom from the Holy Spirit and the courage to act on it. Meanwhile, it’s important that we contact him to ask him to call on the Guard to secure the border (even if Texas has to pay for it). We would also like him to call a special session to turn off the magnets drawing the illegals in. Also let your State Rep and your State Senator know you want them to urge Perry to do both of those things. Even conservative Reps are split on this one so don’t assume you don’t need to contact yours.

Federal: Contact your Congressman and ask him/her to withhold foreign aid from Central American countries and use that money to send the illegals home. They will also need to quickly change the law that requires a court hearing for anyone claiming refugee status. Keep it short and simple.

Talking Points:

  • It is not in the best interest of those in dangerous and poverty-stricken countries to continue to see America as the Promised Land. THAT is the humanitarian message. As long as others believe we will help them, they will keep coming, and that is a very dangerous thing for them. One-third of the children are sexually molested. Crime is rampant. Some will die (or be left for dead) on the way. Diseases are spreading amongst them. It is not safe for them to attempt this journey – and especially not to send their kids on this journey with strangers!
  • The kids have been separated from their parents! It is in their own best interests to maintain the family unit and send the kids home to their parents. If I’m facing a crisis, I want my child with me so I can provide some sense of safety and security through it… and I promise you I’m the only one my child would want to be with as well. We need to care for them while they are here, but get them back to their moms and dads asap.
  • Adoption is not an option as they kids do have parents, and those parents are not willing to relinquish their rights. (They are hoping once their kids are in the US, they as parents will be welcome to follow).
  • The “kids” are not necessarily kids! About half of them are actually teenage boys ages 15-17 – considered men in their own culture. Many of them have gang-related tattoos.
  • It is a moral responsibility to take care of our own families first (1 Tim 5:8). But bringing diseased persons into our country and integrating them into our schools, stores, and health care facilities will hurt, not help, our own families.
  • The US is $17 trillion in debt. We do not have the money to help without borrowing or printing it. This puts the debt burden on the backs of our kids and grandkids for generations to come.
  • What about the financial burden to schools and hospitals? Are schools prepared for all the new students? Do you want your child sitting next to someone with TB or scabies? Will your child’s teacher slow down her lessons to accommodate those who don’t speak English and/or are not at the same level as the others? (They are placed by age, not by what grade they are ready for). Are you prepared for your county taxes to go up to fund the unforeseen expenses at your county hospital? Or worse yet… for your county hospital to have to shut down due to lack of funds?
  • The life raft is full. If America takes on everyone from 3rd world countries, we will sink. And then what good are we to anyone… including ourselves? We are broke. Broke. Charity should be given on an individual basis at home, not by the government. America does have a proper procedure for both refugees and immigrants. Those should be followed.
  • The best way to help them is in their own country. Their governments need to feel shame for allowing an environment that their citizens want to flee. We can offer humanitarian assistance through local charities, and we can pressure their governments to get things in order.

As always, communicate in a respectful way. Attacking anyone only makes them dig in deeper, and it makes you look like a hater. These problems have been building for years and are not any one person’s or party’s fault.

America is exceptional! Let’s celebrate her together!

Posted July 1st, 2014 by Julie

[Note:  This is not an NETTP event.  This is a personal invite from President Julie McCarty...]

Before you leave town for the July 4 weekend, enjoy dinner and a movie with like-minded patriots!

10505210_10204251210264307_6407290937509915044_o

THURSDAY, JULY 3…
Let’s meet up at 5:00pm for dinner at Golden Corral (no waitress required, plus awesome pot roast and a chocolate fountain — and yes, I will fill up a bowl of that delicious liquid!). I know 5pm is early and will not work for many of you, but it was the best we could do given the show time.

Then we’ll head over to Grapevine Mills AMC on July 3 to watch the 6:45 showing of Dinesh’s new movie America: Imagine the World Without Her (see the trailer here: http://www.americathemovie.com/trailers/). It’s a great chance to teach and remember that America is no ordinary nation. We are EXCEPTIONAL!

Come to the movie, the dinner, both or just one. Wear your tea party shirt so we’ll know you’re with us. Disclaimer: I make no promises to recognize anyone or remember anyone’s name outside of an NETTP meeting and without name tags! Please introduce yourself. This is all dutch treat — but the friendship is free. :-)

You don’t have to be an NETTP member to join us. Family, friends, anyone is welcome. And we’re not renting out the theater or anything, so of course it’s open to the public.

I recommend buying your movie ticket now before it sells out! Make sure you buy your ticket for JULY 3. You’ll have to enter in the date at this link: https://www.amctheatres.com/movie-theatres/amc-grapevine-mills-30-with-dine-in-theatres#91982

WE WON!!!! Here’s The New Immigration Plank…

Posted June 8th, 2014 by Julie

Amendment to Preliminary 2014 Platform of the Republican Party of Texas

Submitted by Peter Batura, SD 17

 

America is proudly a nation of immigrants. Throughout our history, our nation has attracted productive, industrious and gifted people to America because she is exceptional, and those immigrants and their descendants helped make America the world’s unrivaled economic and military superpower. It remains imperative to create fair and consistent procedures that will again enable freedom-loving, hard-working and law-abiding immigrants to join us, by providing them an efficient, practical method of legal entry, so they can lawfully take positions where their labor is needed, without exploitation or harassment.

Our national interests are poorly served by our broken, embattled, and outdated immigration system, and patchwork attempts to mend its deficiencies will not prepare us to continue to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex global economy that demands the legal movement of people to fill jobs at all skill levels. An efficient, profamily and market-based system will provide a more workable solution that is compassionate, equitable and respects the rule of law.

But by failing to create a rational and effective system that encourages and facilitates legal immigration to the benefit of the nation, Congress has forced states to deal with the consequences of a broken immigration system, including human, sex and drug trafficking, the direct criminal activities of cartels and gangs. This situation must end so America can, once again, enjoy the fruits of a vibrant and beneficial system of legal immigration.
