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.
Fraud Alert: Texas House Rino Brigade in Action
In the days following the announcement that SB 6 – The Texas Privacy Act – was officially dead in the House, eleven "brave" conservative warriors decided to stop obstructing SB 6 and actually sign on as co-authors.
Now, for those not well versed in the intricacies of the House legislative process, a co-author is usually a sign that a member supports and will vote for the bill when it reaches the floor for a vote. However, in this case, signing on as co-author AFTER a bill is dead, is for the sole purpose of fooling constituents as session approaches its inevitable end and the campaign season looms on the horizon.
These fraudsters hope that they can continue to pull the wool over the eyes of voters with these tricks. They legislate like liberals, living the high life in Austin, then go home to their respective districts and proclaim their "Conservative Bones" by pointing to all the good bills they co-authored. In fact, some “activist” groups actually encourage these cowards by allowing them to 'sign on' in support of bills after they know the bills are already dead. Some groups even reward them with improved “end of session” ratings. Grassroots America is not fooled by those jumping on "dead" bills one bit! They can run, but we won't let them hide!
If good strong bills were allowed to get to the floor, and the Rinos’ Democratic allies couldn't kill the conservative bills with parliamentary tricks, then these fraudsters would actually have to vote against the big spending, big government lobby that makes sure they continue to live the high life. The late “co-author” trick and other devious devices are used to protect the Rino Brigade’s voting records by making sure they never have to vote on the House Floor for true limited government, conservative bills
Unfortunately, this isn't the only way the conservative agenda is thwarted. This session, the Rino Brigade has taken the old tactic of delaying good bills in committee and in the calendar process and turned it into an art. Bills are killed due to missed deadlines. After the session is over, the Rino Brigade will go home and lament that they just couldn't get these bills past Democratic obstruction in committee, therefore, the Rinos contend nobody can blame them for the failures. The good news is – what happens in Austin no longer stays in Austin – Grassroots America is making sure of that .
"ALL POLITICAL POWER IS INHERENT IN THE PEOPLE, AND ALL FREE GOVERNMENTS ARE FOUNDED ON THEIR AUTHORITY, AND INSTITUTED FOR THEIR BENEFIT."
(Texas Constitution Article 1, Section 2)
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, a 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.
Please join us. Unless otherwise noted, meetings are held at 6:30 PM on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the West Texas Training Center (Howard College), 3501 N. US Highway 67, San Angelo 76905
