Police Officers FIRED for being TEA Party Members

Police Officers FIRED for being TEA Party Members

Today I received a plea for help from the Tawakoni Area TEA Party. They have a Mayor that is out of control and hates the TEA Party too. He has fired 2 long time officers for no other apparent reason than the simple fact that they belong to the local TEA Party chapter.

West Tawakoni is a small town in East Texas, they don’t have a lot of TEA Party members and I am not sure how well connected they are to the media , but I know how well connected I am.

EDIT by TexasFred — Oct. 27 @ 10:30AM: I guess The Tawakoni Area TEA Party must not be worth the time or effort of the Dallas TEA Party. Small potatoes to a powerful group like them I guess. I contacted one of their ‘founders’ yesterday and asked for help from their very large, and supposedly powerful group and I have heard nothing back from them. So much for TEA Party loyalty and the idea of working together to get things done.

This has been sent to Drudge, Breitbart, FOX and Friends, several other FOX News on air personalities and several of the local media here in the Dallas area, but I can’t stress this enough, the MEDIA needs to get ALL OVER this one. If you have ANY contacts in the media, send this to them.

The media, and most of Conservative America got their knickers in a twist over Juan Williams being fired by NPR, a case that was, in MY opinion, a libber reaping what he had sown. If Conservative America can get involved and fully outraged over that, what will their reaction to this be?

I sincerely hope it’s not one of apathy.

Please, feel free to forward this to your email list and to ALL media that you may have contact with! It is that important!

From Lake Tawakoni Area TEA Party News

On October 20, 2010 Police Chief Jack Schultz was put on 10 days unpaid suspension at which time he will be terminated. This is a man that has served this city for twenty years and acts as a fatherly figure to his community while keeping us safe.

Sergeant John Becket has Proudly & Bravely served his community for over nine years and operates as a protector and referee of the law instead of a small town speed trap cop as the mayor has publicly announced he wants in he new police department.

These are the sole actions of Mayor Pete Yoho and are being done against the will of the majority of the city council.

A coup d’Ă©tat ( or /ku de.ta/) or coup for short (French for overthrow of the state), is the sudden unconstitutional deposition of a government, usually by a small government’s surrender; or the acquiescence of the populace.

Sorry but WE THE PEOPLE do not ACQUIESCE !!! SOURCE

From Stormin’ Norman:

Re-Call Time For Mayor Yoho…run him out of town!

Mayor Pete Yoho has to go! The citizens of Lake Tawakoni have the right to re-call the mayor and fire him. They can do this at any time they see fit and apparently the time is fit! This has got to be the most un-American action taken by any mayor in the history of the country. Did the mayor of Chicago get rid of Barack Obama as a community organizer for Obama’s ties to the Communist Party USA? You just don’t fire someone for their political party affiliation…Oh, but we’re going to do that on November 2nd !!! ~ Norman E. Hooben

From Texas TEA Parties:

Police Chief Suspended and Police Officer terminated for affiliation with Tea Party-West Tawakoni, TX

Friday, October 22nd, 2010
Subject: City Council Meeting in Tawakoni October 26, 2010
ATTENTION ALL TEA PARTY MEMBERS

As most of you all know Johnny Beckett was terminated as an Police officer in West Tawakoni Wednesday Oct 20th and Chief Jack Schultz on Suspension by the Mayor of West Tawakoni Pete Yoho. The main reason for this action is their affiliation with the Tea Party. During last Tuesday nights meeting the Mayor publicly slandered the LTATP, Jack Schultz, Johnny Beckett, Candy Schultz, Bill Creed, Ed Watson, Carol Soloman, Laura Beckett, and my self. We need all members of the Tea Party to be at the next meeting at city hall Tue, Oct 26th at p.m.. These men are great officers and deserve all of our support. Chief Schultz has been on the police force for many many years and he also served as a volunteer fireman when ever needed. Help is needed. SOURCE

The Direction of the TEA Party in America

April 21st, 2010 . by TexasFred

The Direction of the TEA Party in America

Let’s take a look at the things the TEA Party stands for and at what they hope to accomplish.

*Uphold the U.S. Constitution*

The core values of the TEA Party are the same values upon which the United States of America was founded and are rooted in our belief in Natural Law. They derive from a belief in free will, the primacy of individual and personal responsibility. We will uphold and follow the original intent of the Constitution of the United States.

*Limited Government*

The purpose of our government is to protect our liberties by administering justice and ensuring our safety from threats arising inside or outside our country’s sovereign borders. When our government ventures beyond these functions and attempts to increase its power over the marketplace and the economic decisions of individuals, our liberties are diminished and the probability of corruption, internal strife, economic depression, and poverty increases. Our moral, political, and economic liberties are inherent, not gifts from the government. It is essential to the practice of these liberties that we be free from restriction over our peaceful political expression and free from excessive control over our economic choices. Limited Government simply means the federal government only deals with national issues and inter-state commerce and leaves other issues to the state and local governments.

*Fiscal Responsibility*

Fiscal Responsibility includes demanding a balanced budget, no earmarks or pork, no bailouts and no deficit spending except in a time of war when borrowed funds are only used to support the war.

*Free Markets*

The most powerful, proven instrument of material and social progress is the free market. The market economy, driven by the accumulated expressions of individual economic choices, is the only economic system that preserves and enhances individual liberty. Any other economic system, regardless of its intended pragmatic benefits, undermines our fundamental rights as free people. Free Markets is defined as “the simple process of supply and demand without artificial markets created by government intervention.”

Sounds simple enough, right?

Well sure it does, we ALL want what’s best for America, we all want to uphold the constitution, we all want limited government, we all want a government that is fiscally responsible and free markets make the world go ’round.

There’s no way to argue against ANY of those points, unless you’re an avowed communist, Marxist or socialist. I’m pretty sure they don’t want to see the USA run under those core values, they are, after all, against everything that communists, socialists and Marxists stand for.

So, let me ask my readers this question: You quite likely believe all of the above, otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading here now, so, how then, do we actually accomplish those goals? How do we achieve our CORE VALUES, our beliefs and desires for what we want America to be?

I have met a lot of great folks through the TEA Party, great patriots that have drive, dedication, ideas and a love of country that can’t be doubted. They want to change the direction that our nation is going, and that direction MUST be changed, otherwise, a FREE America will cease to be.

I have asked many in the TEA Party, why are you a member? And almost all have the same response, they want to take this nation back to our declared CORE VALUES.

SO, I’ve asked a few them, how do we do that? Here’s where it gets a bit confusing.

TEA: We have TEA Party meetings and get people interested.

ME: Yeah? Then what?

TEA: We vote for candidates that think like WE do, Conservatives that support the TEA Party.

ME: Great. How do we identify those candidates?

TEA: Uh…. :?  We watch FOX News? They cover all the candidates.

Local Tea Party supporters rail against big government

April 16th, 2010 . by TexasFred

Local Tea Party supporters rail against big government

GRAND PRAIRIE — Michelle Roisum just wants the government to listen.

That’s why she headed out to the Lone Star Tea Party at QuikTrip Park on Thursday night to carry a sign that read “I’ll keep my guns, money and healthcare. You keep the change,” and joined thousands of people trying to deliver a message to Congress.

“Our goal is to make sure this country doesn’t go bankrupt,” she said. “They need to remember what this great country is about.

“If it comes to civil disobedience at some point, I wouldn’t put it past people. But this is what we are doing now.”

Roisum is among the countless Texans and Americans who say they are fed up with a growing government — and a growing deficit — who wanted to show their frustration at so-called “tea parties” being held across the nation Thursday, on the day taxes were due to be sent in to the federal government.

Full Story Here:
Local Tea Party supporters rail against big government

It was my honor to attend the Lone Star TEA Party and to take part in this great event with my fellow TEA Party board member David Leewright! We had a wonderful time. I ran into a couple of old friends from Rowlett and one of my contacts on Facebook was there, we meet in person for the 1st time!

We got rained on a bit, but I didn’t see anyone melting, so, that means Nancy Pelosi was NOT in attendance! :twisted:
