Information about the attacks at Benghazi
Old story, but STILL under Congressional
Investigation and Hearings!



Two Benghazi Accounts the Media is Ignoring 


1.Benghazi Truth is Being Hidden by Obama


If this doesn't make you mad enough to want to change the politicians we have in Washington and Austin, nothing will.......................


Cynthia Lee Myers (cousin of one man who was killed) Wanted to share the truth of what happened over in Libya , you will not find this in the media.


"Here is my story. A week out the Embassy in Tripoli began receiving multiple tips about an Al Queda cell in the area planning an attack on 9/11 in response to the killing of Bin Laden. For the next several days, the state dept and WH were asked for a security force and were denied at least six times. Ambassador Stevens and his team were given the all clear that The Consulate in Benghazi was safe and there was no need for a security force other than his 3 personal guards (One being my cousin) and a few Libyans who were not armed.  


Then the attack and murders occurred. Immediately the WH claimed it was a protest gone bad over a you tube video. Obama made a quick speech in the Rose Garden on Sept.12 before catching a plane to Vegas to campaign. He made a generic statement at the end of his speech after placing the blame on an overheated protest over the video. He said "No act of terror will shake the resolve of America. Later that day and over the next 2 days, the liberal media began saying Ambassador Stevens and the other 3 men died of smoke inhalation. This was not the case. Out of respect for my cousin, I'm not going to be specific about his murder. However Ambassador Stevens was brutally murdered. His genitals were cut off, he was sodomized and beaten and cut and stabbed and burned. He was drug thru the streets and left for dead. This is eyewitness testimony of a local Dr. Who found the Ambassador in a ditch and tried to save his life. He had no idea who he was.


The other 3 men, including my cousin, met similar fates. And deaths due to smoke inhalation is a 100% fabricated LIE. The next week I drove my aunt and Uncle and 2 others to DC to receive his body. We met with Hillary, Panetta, and Susan Rice. ALL of whom apologized and said it was a protest gone bad over a video and exited the area. Next Obama entered with the same story and didn't apologize and wasn't sympathetic. My aunt cried to this man and all he did was hand her flowers and walk away. I tried to get his attention, but didn't. I got upset and yelled liar to him, he kept walking.  Then a secret svc agent grabbed my arm and led me to a room where I was held till the proceedings were over.


America, I saw firsthand how cold this man is. What kind of liar he is. Most of you haven't a clue about this tyrant and yet you support him. And act like every word he says is Gospel. These murders and the fast and furious cover ups make water gate look like, a kid who told his bff's secret to the class. We must stop this man, and please pass this story along."

.....and you voted for whom?



2. What Obama Doesn't Want You To Know

The stunning part of this story is that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed 60 of the attacking force.  Once the compound was overrun, the attackers were incensed to discover that just two men had inflicted so much death and destruction.


The news has been full of the attacks on our embassies throughout the Muslim world, and in particular, the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi, Libya.


However, there's a little known story of incredible bravery, heroics, and  courage that should be the top story.


So what actually happened at the U.S. embassy in Libya?  We are learning more about this every day.  Ambassador Stevens and Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, along with administrative staff, were working out of temporary quarters due to the fact that in the spring of 2011 during the so-called Arab Spring, the United States cut ties with then president Moammar Gadhafi.  Our embassy was looted and ransacked, causing it to be unusable.  It is still in a state of disrepair.


Security for embassies and their personnel is to be provided by the host nation.  Since Libya has gone through a civil war of sorts in the past 18 months, the current government is very unstable, and therefore, unreliable


A well-organized attack by radical Muslims was planned specifically targeting the temporary U.S. embassy building.  The Libyan security force that was in place to protect our people  deserted their post, or joined the attacking force.  Either way, our people were in a real fix. And it should be noted that Ambassador Stevens had mentioned on more than one occasion to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,  that he was quite concerned for his personal safety and the welfare of his people.  It is thought that Ambassador Stevens was on a "hit list."


A short distance from the American compound, two Americans were sleeping.  They were in Libya as independent contractors working an assignment totally unrelated to our embassy.  They also happened to be former Navy Seal's.


When they heard the noise coming from the attack on our embassy, as you would expect from highly trained warriors, they ran to the fight.  Apparently, they had no weapons, but seeing the Libyan guards dropping their guns in their haste in fleeing the scene, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty snatched up several of these discarded weapons and prepared to defend the American compound.


Not knowing exactly what was taking place, the two Seal's set up a defensive perimeter.  Unfortunately Ambassador Stevens was already gravely injured, and Foreign Service officer, Sean Smith, was dead.  However, due to their quick action and suppressive fire, twenty administrative personnel in the embassy were able to escape to safety.  Eventually, these two courageous men were overwhelmed by the sheer numbers brought against them, an enemy force numbering between 100 to 200 attackers which came in two waves.  But the stunning part of the story is that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed 60 of the attacking force.  Once the compound was overrun, the attackers were incensed to discover that just two men had inflicted so much death and destruction.


As it became apparent to these selfless heroes, they were definitely going to lose their lives unless some reinforcements showed up in a hurry.  As we know now, that was not to be.  I'm fairly certain they knew they were going to die in this gun fight, but not before they took a whole lot of bad guys with them!


Consider these tenets of the Navy SEAL Code: 

1) Loyalty to Country, Team and Teammate, 

2) Serve with Honor and Integrity On and Off the Battlefield, 

3) Ready to Lead, Ready to Follow, Never Quit, 

4) Take responsibility for your actions and the actions of your teammates, 

5) Excel as Warriors through Discipline and Innovation, 

6) Train for War, Fight to Win, Defeat our Nation's Enemies, and...

7) Earn your Trident every day




Thank you, Tyrone and Glen.  To the very last breath, you both lived up to the SEAL Code.  You served all of us well.  You were courageous in the face of certain death.


And Tyrone, even though you never got to hold your newborn son, he will grow up knowing the character and quality of his father, a man among men who sacrificed himself defending others.

This should be passed on and on and on.

Kings of Texas

  The true story of Texas politics that everyone
need to know. 


Fellow Grassroots Activists:


Many of you have seen the trailer for the proposed documentary
entitled 'Kings of Texas.'


If you haven't seen the trailer, it's posted here: 


The Dallas Tea Party is attempting to secure funding for the project, but so far, they have been
told this project is simply 'too controversial.'


If any of you have connections to donors you think may be interested in supporting this
project, please let us know.


At present, the project is on hold.  If we're unsuccessful in finding some funding for this project,
this story will not be told to the people of Texas via the most effective medium we know of.


If you have thoughts on where we might secure funding, we're all ears.

The following is a summary from the Clear Lake Tea Party of the lessons learned by the Tea Parties from this session of the Texas form.



 12 Things We Learned During The 82nd Legislative Session

Special thanks to Geri Bentley and Cheryl Johnson for training in how to get around Austin and lobby our own Representatives.  And more special thanks to the dozens of patriots who spent long, arduous days going to and from Austin to confront our legislators with information, appeals, and calls to action.  We all owe them our sincere gratitude for taking our concerns to the Capitol on our behalf.

During our Citizen Lobbyist Trips we were armed with our white papers outlining our conservative positions FOR or AGAINST specific bills.  We would present these at every stop in the Capitol. We made a point of visiting the Governor's office, our Senators Mike Jackson and Dan Patrick, and any Representative who was involved in legislation we wanted to influence.  And of course, we always dropped in on our own Reps who represent this area:   Larry Taylor,  John Davis, Randy Weber, Wayne Smith and sometimes even Democrat Craig Eiland!  (FYI:  you can see a graph of how they voted in the first 120 days of the session

Here are the
Top Twelve Things We Learned During the 82 Legislative Session:

12.  For better or worse, you will be dealing mostly with your legislator's staff.

You can learn a lot about a legislator from the attitudes of his staff.  People tend to surround themselves with like-minded folks, and staff is really an extension of the legislator.  Some are rude and snotty, some are warm and welcoming.  Sometimes, the legislative staffs will outright lie to you.  More than once, when we asked if a legislator was in his office, his staff would say "No, he's not here."  Then, while we're signing his guest book, wouldn't ya know, the Rep unwittingly traipsed out of a back room and right into our midst!

The key is to never forget that all these folks work for us.  We always stayed polite but firm when presenting our cases to legislative staff.

11.  Learn to translate Clintonese!

Speaking of untruths, be aware that the legislators will parse their language so carefully that what they are saying to you might only be true in that moment, under specific circumstances, but otherwise not true at all.  This is truly Clintonian stuff, folks! The tip is here is DO NOT TRUST, and ALWAYS VERIFY.

10.  Reps don't always cast their own votes.

The Reps vote to suspend a House Rule every session that requires them to cast their own votes on each piece of legislation.  They will tell you it's so they can go to the restroom, each some lunch, negotiate with their peers, get to committee meetings.  The reality is that on many days, a couple dozen or so Reps may vote for everyone.  I'll leave that up to you to decide whether that's acceptable or not.

9.  Committee chairmen will try and dodge citizen input in hearings.

Chairmen will drag out committee hearings so they can avoid hearing from work-a-day folks who are signed up to testify.  They will even adjourn, knowing that folks have been waiting for hours, and then commence again at 10pm, when most folks have to go home to families and jobs.  Just be ready for it!  It's a game they play and your only option is to outlast 'em!  Unfortunately, it is effective, because no one but those yahoos are getting paid to be there, and they know you have pressing responsibilities.   If your testimony is imperative, you have to know ahead of time that sometimes you might be there all night!

8.  The folks are NOT policy experts. 

We are represented by folks elected from among us:  insurance agents, business owners, attorneys, veterans, retirees, etc.  They are not legislative geniuses.  Many times the language of bills is written by staffers, consultants, or lobbyists, and the legislator slaps his name on it.  Some of it is so poorly written, it's unenforceable, and sometimes it's so convoluted that it leaves loopholes of unintended consequences lurking in the muddled language. Worse, some legislators don't always read the bills they vote on, unless they are directly involved as authors or sponsors.  They rely on the expertise of the other Reps to know which way to vote.  You know what that means?  There is a very tiny niche of self-proclaimed experts making decisions for the entire deliberative body on issues within their purview.  It is a self-perpetuating problem, and it needs watching!

That's why your letters, emails, and phone calls are so crucial.  If you don't feed these guys info on important issues, folks, they will not know.

7.  TRADITION!!!!!!

Sometimes bills are passed because "that's the way things have always been done."  By now, most of you are already aware of the self-inflicted disaster of the Republican redistricting maps - at every level.  As predicted, conservatives who had opposed Straus were paired against each other or drawn right out of their known districts.  A more strongly conservative map (Cain/Nixon) was ignored and never made it to the floor for debate.  The SBOE map set up some of the conservative members to be eliminated in the next election.  When we discussed our concerns with Senator Mike Jackson, we learned that the Senate always passes the House map and vice versa - it's tradition!

Tradition.  The bottom line is that's a pretty poor cop out.

6.  Where's the fire??

Very little business gets done in full view of the public and even fewer folks are paying attention.  Bills are thrown up on the floor at a rapid fire pace in a constant drone from the clerk.  Yes, there are thousands of bills but much of it is nonsense, such as commending Mildred for her 100th birthday, congratulating so and so on the birth of their first child, their 50th anniversary, their new dog, whatever!  Meanwhile, the people's business is not getting done!  There seems to be ZERO sense of urgency.  Big issues languished in committees or Calendars while the House voted day in and day out on ridiculous stuff.

We were there on the last day of the House voting on House bills.  You'd think they would be on fire with an urgency to pass every last bit of serious business they could get to before midnight, right?  No, they passed one bill dealing with electronic bingo and the rest was garbage. 

If you don't know already what's wrong with Austin, a recent article in the 
Dallas Morning News should give you more clues:

AUSTIN - As lawmakers scramble to pass thousands of bills during the legislative session's final weeks, one House committee wields the power to decide which legislation will see the light of day on the floor and which will die an unceremonious death.

Once a committee advances legislation, the Calendars Committee must then schedule it for floor debate. With a key House deadline looming, committee members are at the height of their power. To outsiders, the powerful 15-member group largely works in the shadows, shrouded by its esoteric procedures.
At the committee's daily meetings, Chairman Todd Hunter rapidly lists off bills by their numbers, and committee members vote on whether to schedule the bill for a House vote. There is little discussion, and the meetings are so short that many committee members don't even bother to take seats.
How the committee makes its final decisions, which bills out of the nearly 400 currently pending get a chance, and exactly what legislation they will stall or push is murky. The real action takes place among committee members, other legislators and lobbyists in private conversations.
The House speaker loads the committee with trusted allies who can advance the leadership's agenda - and insulate him from criticism by members whose bills never get to the floor.
In essence, there are two people who can veto a bill: the governor and the Chairman of House Calendars...

5.  The Republicans can't blame anyone but themselves for their performance.

You are going to hear Republicans claim heroics for having to return for a special session.  You will also hear Republicans blame Democrats for "chubbing" or killing legislation with technicalities before the deadline.  Don't let them get away with it!  They have to come back because their super-majority failed to take care of business in a timely manner.  They could not even complete the emergency legislation Governor Perry assigned at the beginning of the session! There's nothing heroic about willful neglect or incompetence.

Look, the bottom line is the Republicans passed important legislation that was a no brainer.  It's like calling Obama "gutsy" for sending the SEALs after bin Laden.  Anyone would've made the same call and good on them for doing so, but they would've gotten creamed if they hadn't.   Self-preservation is a powerful motivator folks, and if there is anything that drives these yahoos, it's self-preservation.

The real test is in what DIDN'T get passed.

4.  We don't answer to special interest lobbies, and neither should our Reps!

Lobbysists live in Austin round the clock and spend every resource they have hammering home their agenda on these guys.  When the House failed to pass E-Verify, a cornerstone bill to stem illegal immigration, we were told by Taylor's staff that the TAB - Texas Association of Business  lobby - killed the legislation and if we had a problem with it we needed to take it up with them!  Wrong answer. 

3.  The Texas Senate is out of touch with regular Texans.

How is that possible when they are only in Austin 5 months every 2 years?  Believe me, folks, they manage.  

This excerpt from
EmpowerTexans sums it up well:

Texas senators seem to believe they're members of an exclusive club, rather than elected public servants. Speaking for the club this week, State Sen. Steve Ogden (R-Bryan), chair of the Finance Committee, told the press it "has always been ... pretty hard to penetrate the club, but these outside groups have done it and it's making it hard to pass the [budget]."
Outsiders?  That's you, the voting taxpayer; the one paying their club dues. That's the general sentiment inside the halls of the Senatorial Clubhouse.
Senators are dismayed that their budget scheme isn't sailing through the chamber. It's a spending plan that lives beyond the taxpayers' means using one-time revenue gimmicks and tapping the rainy day fund. In conversations this week with senior senate leaders, I was struck by just how out of touch that chamber's Republicans are with political reality. Senators and staffers - all Republicans - told me they fear being defeated by Democrats in November 2012 unless they break the bank.
You know what that tells me, folks?  They are worried about the WRONG VOTERS!

2.  Pledge Cards - the dirty inside secret of Austin politics.

This corrupt practice protects the power structure in Austin. Here's some background from the
North Texas Tea Party:  there has been a long-standing 'tradition' of pledge cards that has made selecting a Speaker nothing but a sham.  The real backroom process is about as democratic as a mugging and is another tradition than needs to go away.

Here's how it really works.  A seated Speaker has hordes of special interests slavering to do favors for the one individual that controls ALL legislation- and tens of billions in State spending. And they have VERY deep pockets for donating vast sums for campaigns.  Toward the end of the session, the Speaker will approach each representative and ask for them to sign a pledge card, promising to support the Speaker for re-election in the NEXT session.  And everyone KNOWS that donations and future committee assignments are tied to this decision.  This last session, redistricting was also a weapon to be used and it was used to effectively eliminate opposition.  Normally, a seated Speaker can get nearly all of his own party's cards; they ALSO can get many for the opposing party, based on favorable committee assignments and- you can be assured- assistance at killing selective majority party legislation by letting it die in the committees controlled by the Speaker.  The current session, in which the GOP had a super-majority, the vast majority of the conservative agenda - other than the budget - died this way. 
In open seats, candidates parade down to Austin looking for donations for their runs.  They are judged by the 'powers that be', on whether they are willing to 'play the game'.  In the majority party, that very often involves a willingness to sign a pre-election pledge card.  Sign a pledge, and doors are opened and donations made.
The major problem with the raw exercise of political power is there is ZERO input by the electorate in this.  They don't wait for the office holder or candidates are validated by the voters; they don't brook any input from the electorate after.  This is the power of the 'Austin machine' and it is time to challenge that when it matters- BEFORE the session is out, BEFORE the election.
Mind you, much of that 'machine is pretty conservative and that is the ONLY reason Texas is STILL in decent shape.  But the constituency has amazing little say in events in Austin and that is one thing we of the Tea Parties need to help change. Both policy AND process matter.

1.  WE were right and our Reps were WRONG.

We were 100% right to oppose Joe Straus as Speaker of the House and all of our Reps were 100% wrong to support him.  All of our warnings about Committee assignments, calendars, and  procedures that killed conservative bills came true.  What these Reps will tell you - and I want you to watch for it - is that "Hey, look at what we passed! You guys should be so happy."  What they want you to do is look at what's in this hand so that you don't realize the other hand is empty.  I'm telling you right now that approximately 30% of the conservative agenda has passed thus far.  (We'll be updating this figure after the session ends with the final tally.)  That's not nearly good enough.

SUMMARY:  Nice guys finish last.  Let me leave you with this thought.  The big bills that got passed are certainly a credit to the Republicans.  But it is a paltry showing when they had the opportunity to do so much more - and PROMISED to do so much more to get elected.   Passing 30% while leaving 70% on the table is unacceptable. We must demand more.  We had a serious shot at a bold conservative agenda with an unprecedented super majority.  But we were let down by our Reps who thought they knew better than us. 

We don't need more of the same self-interested politicians worried about re-election, we need fearless leaders driven by their principles.  When the issues get complicated and the pressure mounts, we have to know that the Reps we elect have a bedrock of uncompromising conservative principles. 

Knowing what we know now, we are committed to vetting candidates for office for the 2012 primary.  Principle matters above all!  We don't want flowery words and empty promises - we want backbone and determination.  We absolutely count on YOU folks to back conservatives that otherwise would not have a chance without your commitment.

It is imperative that we build a grassroots organization to support these efforts  and it starts in your neighborhoods in your precincts.  To that end, we need everyday folks to step and volunteer to become precinct chairs.  We want to help you do this.  We will help you determine your precinct by your address, and will help you with the 1-page application.

This is a call to action, folks.  If you're interested, please email me  and we can talk further.

Thank you, Patriots!


Memorial Day Message May, 2011

 We must never, never, never forget the sacrifices our troops and their families make when their country calls them to duty.
The following reminder was provided by our Tea Party friends in Mt. Pleasant, Eric & Barbara Bruechner.
Please take the time to watch the video, read the articles and then pray for the family.

Since we heard early last week that a hometown soldier had fallen serving our country, politics has taken a rather distance back seat for the time being. Over the course of the past few days, both at the memorial service and through media reports,we have learned what a respected soldier SSG Chauncy Mays really was. He was a hero to all of us, but he was a hero to his comrades also.


Those at his memorial service Sunday had hearts filled with grief for a fallen soldier and his family, but also filled with pride and gratitude for people like Chauncy. After the service, I was visiting with his wife Kathy and asked if their children were there. She pointed out 2 little girls ages 3 and 1 carrying around the displayed pictures of their daddy. That was one of the toughest moments of the day for me. 


Funeral services are still pending and I know that some of you plan to attend, so will forward info when I receive it from Steve Austin, our Veterans Service officer locally. If you weren't able to attend the memorial service Sunday, see the links below from Channel 7 news and the Tribune. Keep this family and all our brave military folks in your prayers.


There were a few people who participated in the service that weren't mentioned in the local newspaper article below that deserve recognition. Rhonda Currey and Donna Foster sang along with Allen. David Horton and Mike Horton took care of the sound system and Tim Ervin concluded the service with Taps. The Patriot Guard, made up of both local patriots and others from across Northeast Texas stood at attention with a Flag Line both before and during the service. It was a sad day, but also one that reminded us of all those who make us so very proud to be Americans.

Disagree with the Administration, Be Labeled a Racist
As printed in After reading the op-ed, please go to Politico to comment in the comments section. We need your support.  Click here to see the article. Tweet a link to the article or update your facebook page with a link to the article.

A clear pattern of behavior has emerged over the last sixteen months. According to liberals, if you disagree with the their thinking, and if you disagree with the current administration, you are not only wrong, you are a "racist."  The latest strike by the left comes from the NAACP, who has resolved that the tea party movement is inherently "racist."   At its most simple, this is a direct attack on the First Amendment rights of millions of Americans.

The NAACP has long history of liberalism and racism.  If you are a conservative, including a conservative African American, there is no room for you at the NAACP.  If you have opinions that differ from the NAACP and the liberal establishment, and if you are African American, you are an "Uncle Tom," a "negro," "not black enough," and "against our people."  In other words, the NAACP fancies itself the thought police for millions of black Americans. Disagree with them and you will be ostracized and attacked.  You will be subjected to public humiliation and racist commentary from NAACP leadership. The message is clear; tow the line or pay the price.

But the NAACP does not stand alone in this regard.  There is a long history of the use of the race card on the left, and it has been pulled on people all across the political spectrum.  In recent memory, President Clinton was smeared as a racist by the Obama campaign when Hillary Clinton was running for President. It seems that anyone who disagrees with the far left, socialist policies of Barack Obama and the current administration is subject to the heavy hand of the race card.

The race card is generally played when all else has failed.  It was inevitable that it would eventually be used aggressively against the tea party movement. First, members of the tea party movement were called disgruntled voters, then Speaker Pelosi said our movement was nothing more than "AstroTurf" and laughed off as a flash in the pan that would disappear overnight.   Next the DNC relased an ad calling us an "angry mob."   Most recently, we're being called racist.

All of these attacks have failed because they are untrue and the American people know it.  According to recent polling, over 49 million people are active members of the tea party movement (Winston Group, April 1, 2010).  Over 145 million people say that the tea party movement is a good thing for America (Rasmussen, June, 2, 2010).  The Obama White House and liberal interest groups are hitting the panic button as they read the weekly polls showing diminishing support for their radical big government issue agenda, and a weariness for the politics of division.

Like all movements, the tea party has its fringe.  President Obama's domestic terrorist friends from the 60's antiwar past never represented the Americans of good conscience who opposed the Vietnam war.  In a similar vein, the racist posters of a few at a Tea Party rally do not represent the feelings or behavior of Americans who believe in this movement.  

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be proud of this movement.  He dreamed of a colorblind society.  The tea party is a truly post-racial movement.  Based strictly around the three simple principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market capitalism, the movement is uninterested and uninvolved in the politics of race.   We are freedom loving Americans numbering in the millions who have come together to express their outrage against a government no longer of, for and by the people.  Standing together as brothers and sisters in the fight to return America to its founding principles, skin color, religion, social status, and even political party affiliation are irrelevant to the people involved in this movement.  These are the facts.  And these facts have already withstood sixteen months of liberal media scrutiny and bombardment.  

Today, the NAACP again brings up the completely falsified charges of racial epithets hurled at members of Congress during the debate leading up to the passage of Obamacare.   Widely reported as fact by the liberal media, even an offered reward of $100,000 to anyone who could provide documentary evidence proving the charges could not coax videotape, audiotape or a single witness out of a crowd of thousands present on Capitol Hill that day.   The race card; played again, and once again discarded by the American people.  

When Kenneth Gladney, a black conservative activist was brutally beaten by SEIU thugs at a protest outside of Rep. Russ Carnahan's office, the NAACP and the liberal left refused to intervene.  To the contrary, at an NAACP press conference in St. Louis in May, Gladney was referred to as a "negro," an "Uncle Tom," and someone not worthy of the protection of the NAACP, because he's working for the "other side."  The NAACP has defended the thugs who beat Gladney, and at the press conference, money was raised for the defense of the "brothers."  The race card played once again, this time in confusing fashion, against an African American who was deemed "not black enough," and found himself on the wrong side of the NAACP thought police.   

At Tea Party Patriots we will continue to condemn the fringe elements of the movement and any expression of racism or bigotry.  We sincerely hope that the Obama While House, the NAACP, and the liberal left will follow our lead and do the same in their own ranks.

The SBOE hands a victory to citizens by supporting American Exceptionalism

Texas State Board of Education members heard from conservative voices, and by a 10-5 margin upheld the values of American Exceptionalism in our public education.

3This is a major victory for protecting American History from the ever-growing pressure from the left to inject anti-American bias into our textbooks.

American Exceptionalism is grounded in the founding of the United States upon an idea, a concept that America would be a nation of laws, built on the concept of individual liberty and equal justice before the law, with freedoms ranging from speech to worship, and rights from gun ownership to assembly.

The Founding Fathers institutionalized these freedoms so we would be safe from a too-powerful government. Our government works for us, not the other way around.
America was founded as the land of opportunity.

Liberty provides that opportunity, which is why in just over 200 years; America is the greatest democracy in the world, the most productive engine of economic growth, the most influential culture and the most far-reaching inventions and innovations.

Chuck Norris says - "Don't Mess with Texas Textbooks"

They say that behind Chuck Norris' beard is not a chin, but another fist. Whether or not that's true, one thing is absolutely clear - inside his head is a brain.

4We can't say that much about the liberal groups lobbying to push their anti-American agenda into Texas textbooks. This week on, Norris went toe-to-toe with those liberal idealogues - you can guess who came out as the winner …

Here's an excerpt:

"Liberals and progressives complain that conservatives are hijacking the curriculum process and modifying textbooks to fit their ideological whims.

"But the history of textbook alterations clearly has proved it is the liberals who have changed the course and content of curricula and textbook production. Conservatives have been largely the guardians or preservationists of tradition. Progressives have changed curricula content to pacify the politically correct and adopt what they value today and want others to value tomorrow…

"My personal warning to educational tyranny and tyrants is this: It's best not to test or mess with Texas. If you thought we fought hard for the Alamo, wait until you see what we can do for the right to educate our children. You can hide behind your No. 2 pencils, but our branding irons will find your tail sides."

The lesson here is, don't mess with Texas textbooks - or Chuck Norris!
