West Texans for Constitutionally-Limited Government
KrisAnne Hall is an attorney and former prosecutor, fired after teaching the Constitution to TEA Party groups – she would not sacrifice liberty for a paycheck. She is a disabled veteran of the US Army, a Russian linguist, a mother, pastor’s wife and a patriot. She now travels the country and teaches the Constitution and the history that gave us our founding documents. KrisAnne Hall does not just teach the Constitution, she lays the foundations that show how reliable and relevant our founding documents are today. She presents the “genealogy” of the Constitution – the 700 year history and five foundational documents that are the very roots of American Liberty.

American Heritage–From Colonial Settlement to the Current Day
On July 4, 1776, America—acting under the authority of “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”—declared its independence from Great Britain. The new nation, founded on the principle that “all Men are created equal,” eventually grew to become the most prosperous and powerful nation in the world. This course will consider the history of America from the colonial era to the present, including major challenges to the Founders’ principles.

Your Texas House at Work:
Courtesy of Obstructive House Speaker Joe Straus
& His Willing Accomplices – GOP Committee Chairs
With few days remaining in the Special Session, the property tax reform bill is sitting in the Calendars Committee waiting for a floor vote to be scheduled. Other conservative reform bills are languishing in House Committees ruled by the Road blocking Rinos.
There is NO sense of business urgency within the Texas House leadership to get Governor Abbott’s conservative, pro-taxpayer, pro-liberty items through the committee process so there can be floor debate and a vote, but even worse, there’s no sense of urgency to get the People’s work done. None.
Statewide conservative organizations consistently are calling for action. Governor Abbott is calling for action. Grassroots activists are calling for action. New Texas Republican Party Chairman James Dickey is calling for action. Nothing moves Joe Straus and his obstructionist Committee Chairs – nothing.
Texas House Republican Caucus Chairman Tan Parker and all of the Republican Representatives need to understand this…a tipping point is coming.
Just as the DC Swamp Masters Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have damaged the GOP brand across this country, Straus and his foot soldiers in the Texas House are indeed damaging the Republican brand.
If Republican Representatives don’t start resisting the Texas House Swamp Masters, they will be drowned by them.
The silence of an overwhelming majority of the 95 Republican members of the Texas House is deafening. The people have had enough.
Build the Tipping Point. Take Action.
If you don’t speak, they cannot hear you.
Contact Texas House Republican Caucus Chairman Tan Parker to let him know that the slow-moving Texas House is unacceptable. Ask him what he’s doing about it. Ask him why they are not on the House floor every day at 9 am until midnight debating bills. If he says the bills aren’t ready, ask him why the GOP Committee chairs aren’t meeting around the clock to get bills ready to go to Calendars to be scheduled for a floor vote. His Austin office number is (512) 463-0688; and his Flower Mound office number is (972) 724-8477. Message him on Facebook @tparker63 and Twitter @tparker63
Contact State Representative Drew Darby (325-658-7313) with the same questions. He may not be a committee chair, but letting them know how you feel about this nonsense and inaction puts pressure on them to RESIST the Straus leadership.
Contact the Texas Republican House Caucus.
Message on Facebook: @TxHouseCaucus
and on Twitter: @TxHouseCaucus
Share this message with your organization and your email list. Share it on social media. We need all conservative voices building the pressure to force the tipping point.
Contacting Joe Straus is a waste of time – so train your efforts on Chairman Parker and your State Rep. to let him/her know you expect them to speak up.
Don’t just sit there and take it.
Next meeting August 8, 2017
