Texas Lawmakers Launch Attack on UN Agenda 21

Fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of offi­cials in other states, law­mak­ers in Texas intro­duced leg­is­la­tion that would pro­hibit some state and local gov­ern­ment par­tic­i­pa­tion in the deeply con­tro­ver­sial United Nations “sus­tain­abil­ity” scheme known as Agenda 21. With bills tar­get­ing the UN pro­gram intro­duced in both houses of the leg­is­la­ture and out­rage about Agenda 21 still grow­ing across Texas and the nation, activists and law­mak­ers are hope­ful that the state will suc­ceed in pro­tect­ing prop­erty rights, self-government, and eco­nomic free­dom from the Obama administration-backed UN scheme. How­ever, ele­ments of the estab­lish­ment media and UN-loving forces in Texas and beyond have already made clear that they intend to fight back.   

The anti-Agenda 21 leg­is­la­tion, filed last week by Repub­li­can State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Molly White in the House and GOP State Sen­a­tor Bob Hall in the Sen­ate as S.B. 445, take aim at state and local gov­ern­ment fund­ing to UN-linked orga­ni­za­tions involved in impos­ing the plan­e­tary scheme. “A gov­ern­men­tal entity may not enter into an agree­ment or con­tract with, accept money from, or grant money or other finan­cial aid to a non­govern­men­tal or inter­gov­ern­men­tal orga­ni­za­tion accred­ited by the United Nations to imple­ment a pol­icy that orig­i­nated in the Agenda 21 plan adopted by mem­bers of the United Nations at the United Nations Con­fer­ence on Envi­ron­ment and Devel­op­ment in June 1992,” the bill explains.  CONTINUE READING…

Obama, America Wants A Divorce!

OBAMA, AMERICA WANTS A DIVORCE

Majority of House members sign letter blasting Obama bullet ban proposal…

Opposition to the Obama administration’s proposal to ban a popular bullet is gaining steam in the House of Representatives, where more than half of the lawmakers have signed a letter opposing the move.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says it wants to ban popular .223 M855 “green tip” ammunition because the bullets can pierce bulletproof vests used by law enforcement. Although the ATF previously approved it in 1986, the agency now says that because handguns have now been designed that can also fire the bullets, police officers are now more likely to encounter them.Some 239 members of the House have now put their names to the letter opposing the ban, which they say would interfere with Americans’ Constitutional rights.  Click here to continue reading and watch Fox News Report.

Jesus Would Cry

February 23, 2015

I just read the article in the Saturday LNJ about the liberal Democrats stance on the Federal judge’s stay of Obama’s latest unconstitutional amnesty power grab. The liberals overall statements were the typical tripe of half-truths and distortions. What really got my attention were comments from Jose Sanchez about how “Jesus” would weigh in on this situation.

Here’s a condensed version of what Mr. Sanchez said: Jesus would NOT be cheering as children are broken up from their families. Jesus would also NOT be cheering as these illegal immigrants are sent back to the country they came from. All of this would make Jesus sad and his sadness would all be due to Conservatives and Republicans upholding the American immigration laws.

Well Mr. Sanchez – lets also ask if Jesus would be cheering the liberal Democrat Party’s absolute dedication to killing millions upon millions of completely innocent unborn babies here in America. Would Jesus also be cheering the liberal Democrat support for the gay group MAMBLA to be allowed to have sexual relations with children of any age? How loud would Jesus be cheering for the darlings of the liberal Democrat crowd – Occupy Wall Street? These people rioted in cities, looted stores, fought with Police, and tolerated rape in their “occupy” camps.

No, Mr. Sanchez, Jesus would be crying over these liberal Democrat core beliefs and activities. He would look upon the people that would do these activities and pray feverishly for their conversion and redemption. Jesus would not be party to being involved in a kings ruling and the people’s attempt to overthrow this unconstitutional ruling. “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s”.

If you find that these words sting in your heart, remember that you first broached the subject of how Jesus would react to Conservative beliefs on immigration. I also just asked if Jesus would be cheering based on the core beliefs of your liberal Democratic Party. The answer was incredibly obvious. The hypocrisy overwhelming. The shame and guilt self-inflicted.

Majority of Senate U.S. Senators Sign Letter Opposing Obama’s Proposed Ban on AR-15 Ammo

Fairfax, Va. – A majority of the United States Senate has joined 239 members of the United States House of Representatives and the National Rifle Association in opposing the Obama Administration’s attempt to ban commonly used ammunition for the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15. Yesterday, 52 U.S. Senators signed a letter authored by Senator Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), opposing its proposed framework to ban M855 ammunition.

“This letter sends a clear message to President Obama that Congress strongly opposes his attempt to use his pen and phone to thwart the will of the American people and impose gun control,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The NRA would like to thank Chairman Grassley and all who signed the letter for opposing this unconstitutional attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.” To continue reading and view Chairman Grassley letter, CLICK HERE…

Conservatives vs. Yes Men

February 7, 2015

I read the Forum article from John Coppedge about how veteran House Representatives Simpson and Hughes were recently left out in the cold for the “plum” Texas House committees and chairmanships. It seems that the area rookie reps Chris Pattie Travis Clardy did get numerous “plum” committee appointments. Simpson and Hughes did not vote for Straus as Speaker and the other two did. Speaker of the House Joe Straus then made these committee selections.

Mr. Coppedge implies that those that DID vote for “King Straus” got the “plums” and those that did NOT got the shaft. He further implies that you have failed your constituents if you did not do what was needed to get the powerful committees and chairmanships.

Here are some facts that shed a different light on this way of thinking. Joe Straus was elected in 2009 by 65 Democrats and 11 Republicans. The majority of Republicans in 2009 did not want him as speaker. He has since ruled the House with an iron fist and is no friend to the conservative movement in Texas. He has squashed a majority of the conservative agenda in the House while Speaker. He plays a dirty political game as Speaker and rewards his cronies who serve at his feet.

There is a scorecard on the voting record of Texas House members put out by 3 major conservative groups in Texas – Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Young Conservatives of Texas, and Eagle Forum. All are long time top-notch conservative groups. Straus has an average mark of 42, Clardy has a mark of 48, and Paddie has a mark of 53. All are F- grades on any report card. Hughes has an 87 and Simpson has a 92. Who do you think are the conservatives in this group?

It is easy to see why two Reps got the “plums” and two Reps got the shaft. Two are true conservatives who stand tall and vote truly conservative when the rubber meets the road. The other two are “yes men” for a speaker that has a F- conservative voting record and is still beholden to the liberal Democrats that elected him 6 years ago. He also keeps the House RINO Republicans in line with the big stick of his speaker’s money and influence.

It takes a true conservative to stand up and be counted in Austin. These qualities are not needed in a “yes” man who bows to the King on the throne. Sending “yes” men to Austin that flunk miserably on a conservative voting scorecard is what got this country in the shape it is in now. Representatives Hughes and Simpson deserve to be recognized for the true patriotic conservatives they are.

We The People-Longview Press Release on HB 2165 ‘To End Prohibition of Marijuana’

We-The-People.jpgwww.WTPLONGVIEW.com

March 6, 2015

Many of you may have already received information on House Bill 2165 authored by State Representative David Simpson, “To End the Prohibition of Marijuana”.

Since this is such a highly controversial matter, we found it necessary to send out a Press Release from We The People-Longview’s Executive Board. This was sent to the Longview News Journal on March 5th.  It reads as follows:


March 5, 2015
We The People-Longview Press Release

This press release is in reference to Texas State District 7 Representative David Simpson’s House Bill 2165 which was filed on March 2, 2015. This bill would ‘End Marijuana Prohibition in Texas’.

We The People-Longview would like to clarify that in the past, the majority of our group has been in agreement with Representative Simpson on his conservative approach to legislative issues.

HOWEVER, the We The People-Longview Executive Board DOES NOT support HB 2165 nor did we have any knowledge of this bill prior to its filing.
