Garland Tea Party Presents
“THE RADICALIZATION OF TEXAS STUDENTS:
COMMON CORE & CSCOPE”
Guest Speaker: Dr. Carole Hornsby Haynes
Guest Speaker: Dr. Carole Hornsby Haynes
What has happened to our once great American public schools? Why are so many students continuing to underperform academically in spite of the much acclaimed education reforms? What is Common Core and is it the same as CSCOPE? Did you know that Common Core is a $500 billion business? Who’s reaping this giant windfall? Dr. Carole Haynes will join us to answer these questions and discuss how left wing radicals are using Texas schools as a battleground to ensure long term implementation of their Marxist agenda. Texas said “NO” to Common Core. But that didn’t stop D.C. politicians or even our own Texas educrats. Learn how these tax paid educators are quietly selling out our great state to radicals and turning our children against America and our Christian faith. Dr. Haynes will expose how big business favorites have partnered with big government to put more billions into their coffers while using our children as pawns. Carole Haynes is a curriculum specialist, speaker, commentator, and writer about education and public policy. Her recent articles include “Common Core: the $500 Billion Scandal,” “Common Core’s Data Mining Trojan Horse,” and “Common Core: What’s in it for Bill Gates?”

Come and hear a discussion on the TX Constitutional Amendments and the City of Garland property tax increase proposal that will be on the ballot next month.
Candy Noble, SREC for Senate District 8
Candy will be presenting the pros and cons of the Constitutional Amendments.
And we be discussing the Garland property tax increase.
Congressman Pete Sessions – steadfastly avoiding serious town halls where he may face conservatives / tea party activists in Dallas – recently was caught on camera arrogantly claiming 1) that he was unable to get Obamacare defunding language from Senator Cruz (false), and 2) that this language supposedly does not work (language he co-sponsors).
See below for an example of establishment-gone-unhinged:
Now, this isn’t the first time he’s been bad-mouthing Senator Cruz and those committed to defunding. He has been going to his country club buddies in Dallas telling everyone that the defund Obamacare plan is crazy. He calls a few supporters and gets them to do his bidding to try to gin up Republicans in Dallas against the defund effort. For example, this email is floating around Texas circles (and it is hardly isolated – as Mr. Sessions has been saying this at forums around DFW) from a guy in the Dallas area:
“I just got off a 15 minute phone call from United States Congressman Pete Sessions… He also serves as the Chairman of the powerful House Committee on Rules. He called to get my opinion and ideas on defunding Obamacare. He also mentioned his frustration with Senator Ted Cruz and Representative Michelle Bachman who are out talking about defunding Obama, but as of yet, has not submitted their ideas to him. He stressed that he has tried and tried to get their reports, but with no success. His hands are practically tied until they submit their ideas.”

Come and hear from your Texas legislators.
They will provide us with an assessment of the recent legislative session
and the three special sessions.
After their updates, you will have an opportunity to ask them questions.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN?
As you may know, we the people of Texas pay Senator John Cornyn a salary of $174,000.00 per year. Over the course of a six-year term, that's over a million dollars.
Given that we pay the man much more than most of us make, it's understandable that we would expect that Senator Cornyn would be so kind as to make himself available to us on a periodic basis, to discuss the critical issues facing our Republic and how he plans to address them.
Apparently, Senator Cornyn disagrees.
Despite repeated requests from constituents, Senator John Cornyn has not seen fit to host any in-person townhalls during the August Recess to hear from the people of Texas.
Being Texans, we're not inclined to let that stand. In order to provide every opportunity, WE'RE holding a townhall for him this Saturday.
We are inviting Senator Cornyn to join us for this conversation. While we have not received a confirmation of attendance we are hopeful he will ultimately decide to participate.
Following the townhall, we are holding a strategy session for the Come and Take It campaign to stop the Obama Machine's Progressive takeover of Texas.
Dinner will be provided between the town hall and strategy session.

Gregg Cummings and Matt Frate of Tea Party Patriots will be in Texas Wednesday July 24 and Thursday July 25 to assist with street protests and visits to Representative Pete Sessions office.
Obamacare set the standard that is now being used to craft the amnesty bill. In DC it’s acceptable to create bloated bills, include vague and ambiguous language, abdicate congressional power to unelected bureaucrats, hide details from public view, and pass bills in the dead of night. Then they expect the American people to swallow it whole!
Our government is out of control and in need of an intervention. Please join us for these events next week:

Update from Jackie Mumaw:
There were 5,974 bills filed in the Texas House and Senate this session. This week 667 bills will have a hearing. I will be sending another update later on some of the bills that have had hearings to let you know their status.
This is a CRITICAL week for hearings.
Bills attempting to define and regulate home schools in Texas in certain situations will be voted on in the Senate Monday and heard in House Committee Tuesday. A bill attempting to resolve the problem with pipeline owners claiming they are common carriers so they can utilize eminent domain authority and bills allowing people to opt out of smart meters and restrict how the information collected by smart meters is used will be heard Tuesday. David Simpson's TSA anti-groping bill will be heard Wednesday, as will several bills and resolutions relating to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and a bill outlawing abortion after 20 weeks. There are also a couple of bills that would affect the integrity of the voter registration system and several open government and transparency bills.
