A member’s letter to Burgess

Posted September 5th, 2013 by Julie

One of our members recently wrote a letter to Congressman Burgess and asked NETTP to share it.  He is hopeful that others will join with him in encouraging the Congressman to start impeachment proceedings against President Obama.

NETTP members may have differing feelings about whether this man’s efforts are right or wrong, realistic or futile, but what is significant is that this young man acted on his beliefs.  He researched well, he put forth a thoughtful argument, and he’s seeking support from others.  That right there is how change happens and how things get done.  And that’s why we are sharing it with you — as a good example of citizen activism and initiative.

Please click below to read his letter.  If you want to add your voice of support, you may contact the author at, and of course you can contact Congressman Burgess by clicking here.

Since taking office, General Abbott has collected more than $24 billion in child support for Texas children.

In his capacity as the state’s lawyer, Attorney General Abbott oversees more than 700 attorneys who represent the State of Texas. General Abbott has personally appeared in courtrooms around the state and has obtained indictments against criminals charged with offenses ranging from attempted aggravated assault of a child to capital murder. In March 2005, General Abbott personally appeared before the United States Supreme Court, where he successfully defended the constitutionality of the Ten Commandments display that adorns the Texas Capitol grounds.

General Abbott’s career in public service began in Houston, where he served as a highly rated state trial judge in the 129th District Court for three years and was named “Trial Judge of the Year” by the Texas Association of Civil Trial and Appellate Specialists. In 1995, then-Governor George W. Bush appointed Abbott to the Texas Supreme Court, where he served with distinction. Twice elected to the Texas Supreme Court, Abbott earned numerous awards, including “Jurist of the Year” from the Texas Review of Law & Politics and Appellate Specialists; and “Appellate Judge of the Year” from the Texas Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates.”

An active participant in his community, General Abbott has held leadership positions in numerous organizations, including the Central Texas Chapter of Goodwill Industries, the Governor’s Committee to Promote Adoption, Justice for All, and the Texas Institute for Rehabilitation and Research Foundation. In 2004, General Abbott served as Honorary State Chairman of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Texas.

Nov 14: Gary Aldrich, former FBI Agent inside the Clinton White House

NE Tarrant Tea Party meeting

Guest Speaker: Gary Aldrich, former FBI Agent

$5 pizza dinner served at 6pm (see note below re: free dinner!)

(bldg 1020 of Highland Meadow Montessori Academy)

Join us to hear from Gary Aldrich, American Patriot, Entrepreneur and Author of “Unlimited Access – An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House“.

On Independence Day 1996, former FBI Agent Gary Aldrich broke the code of silence surrounding the Clinton Administration. He exposed the questionable behavior and serious breaches of national security and attacks an basic American values that permeated the White House during this time.

His subsequent book “Unlimited Access” detailing this, soon entered the New York Times’ bestseller list at #1, and has since been credited as one of the forerunners of the provocative trend in popular conservative books on national affairs. But this success did little to blunt the harsh sting of scorn and criticism that was to be heaped upon Mr. Aldrich. His livelihood, his family’s security, his hard-earned good reputation, and his very life were put on the line on a daily basis in the face of a vociferous maelstrom from the Hard Left who wished to keep the truth about the Clintons, and their real agenda, under wraps.

Mr. Aldrich was able to weather the storm all the stronger though, and went on to release both a political novel, Speak No Evil, and another book of essays, Thunder on the Left, which outlined the Hard Left’s systematically co-option of a political party.

Given Mr. Aldrich’s past experience, he has a particular passion to intercede in the plight of ethical dissenters currently under attack by the media or by a corrupt federal agency or administration.

He continues to appear as an expert witness guest on many talk shows around the nation discussing the Clinton administration, corruption, the FBI, other federal agencies, issues related to law enforcement, and Second Amendment rights.

A 30-yr veteran of the FBI, Mr. Aldrich specialized in white collar crime, including fraud and political corruption. For five years prior to retiring, Mr. Aldrich served under former President Bush and Clinton in a national security role. In addition, he was assigned to the US Senate and House, working closely with elected officials on a variety of issues.

In January 1998 Mr. Aldrich found The Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty, a non-profit foundation dedicated to assisting whistleblowers by protecting their First Amendment rights. He is now helping those who want to engage in political dissent through the Tea Party Movement.

Please join us on Monday night to hear Mr. Aldrich speak to us about the ongoing attacks on our liberties while giving us the keys to protecting ourselves from them – all from his Washington DC perspective.

Sept 12: Allen Clark on Civilizational Jihad

Allen Clark will speak to us on “Civilizational Jihad”…  internal subversion and treason, broader than Sharia Law.

About Allen Clark…

After attending Phillips Exeter Academy, Allen graduated the United States Military Academy in 1963, after which he was commissioned in the Army Corps of Engineers.  Two years after graduation from West Point, he volunteered for a tour in Vietnam where he served as a Military Intelligence officer assigned to the Fifth Special Forces Group.  Allen sustained injuries in an early-morning mortar attack at the Dak To Special Forces camp on June 17, 1967, that necessitated the amputation of both legs below his knees.  His military service and sacrifice were recognized with receipt of a Silver Star for Gallantry in Action, the Purple Heart, and the Combat Infantryman’s Badge. He was airborne-qualified.

While learning to adjust to his disability and to walk on prosthetic legs, he obtained an MBA in finance and investments from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.  Allen’s first post-graduate position was as an investment manager for Ross Perot.  His other private sector experience has spanned oil and gas exploration, real estate marketing, and mortgage lending.  He has been vice president of a bank, president of three oil service companies, and co-founder of a real estate investment company in Texas.

Allen’s impassioned commitment to public service and to helping veterans began with an appointment in 1979 as the Special Assistant for Administration to Texas Governor William P. Clements, Jr.  In 1981, Allen was President Ronald Reagan’s selection to be Deputy Administrator for the Veterans Administration (now the Department of Veterans Affairs).  However, he chose to remain in Texas where in 1982 he received the Texas Republican Party’s nomination to run for State Treasurer in a race that was won by former Texas State Governor Ann Richards.

In 1989, he was nominated by President George H.W. Bush and confirmed by the U.S. Senate as Assistant Secretary for Veterans Liaison and Program Coordination at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.  In 1991, he received his second VA confirmation as Director of the National Cemetery System, a position in which he served until the end of the Bush Administration.

Allen’s dedicated efforts to support veterans’ causes at the national and state levels were recognized with his nomination by the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization as the Texas State candidate for the national Outstanding Disabled Veteran of the year 2000.  In 1993 the Military Chaplains Association awarded him their annual National Citizenship Award.”

He retired in 2005 as the Public Affairs Officer for the VA North Texas Health Care System in Dallas, Texas.  His current lay ministry is involved in outreach efforts to help veterans recover emotionally and spiritually from adverse wartime experiences.  Allen participates in many community and civic activities, including regularly speaking at various group events and churches.  Allen has addressed many audiences nationwide as a political candidate, public official, and motivational speaker.  Allen’s autobiography titled “Wounded Soldier, Healing Warrior” was published in early 2007 by Zenith Press (visit book site).

He is a member of the American Legion, Association of the U.S. Army, Disabled American Veterans, Military Order of the World Wars, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Military Officers Association, Sons of the American Revolution, Special Forces Association, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Association of Graduates of the U.S. Military Academy, and Vietnam Veterans of America.

Allen and his wife, the former Linda Frost, are members of Christ Church, Plano, TX.  Allen can be contacted by sending an email to
Here is some reading that will be recommended in this presentation:


Posted March 23rd, 2011 by Julie

From Erick Erickson at Red State:  I get asked all the time what tea party activists need to do to become more effective in the fight for freedom.  Without hesitation, I say tea party activists need to be sure what they believe.  What I mean is simple — it is one thing to have read the constitution and quite another to understand why the founding fathers did what they did and how. Your economic freedom is under attack. Learn how you can defend your Constitutional rights. On April 16 at 9am (CST) you can participate in a FREE townhall meeting addressing this topic.  It’s being hosted by Congressman Mike Pence and Drs. Larry Arnn and Paul Moreno of the highly-respected Hillsdale College, and I encourage you to participate if you can!  It is online and free for you. You’ll learn how our economic liberty has diminished and how we can get it back under the U.S. Constitution. You can watch all or part of it. But most importantly, you can make sure what you believe.
