28 June Meeting:

We have an exciting new series on the “Foundation of Our Nation” we will be starting at our regular 28 June meeting. Through power point slides and videos you will learn what our Constitution really says, what the Founders intended for it to mean and the real character of those who helped frame it. You will not want to miss this first session.

2 July Tea Party Rally:

Opportunity to meet, talk and exchange ideas on what “We The People” can and must do save our country from the slide into bankruptcy and socialism that we are now experiencing. Several intersting speakers and videos planned to help focus our efforts to take back our country.

Canton, Van and Edom have active Tea Party groups.  It is our desire to get the cities to the North and West in Van Zandt and other counties actively involved in the 2010 elections.  If you have friends or family in and around Wills Point, Edgewood, Grand Saline or any of the nearby counties, encourage them to attend these meetings. 

May God continue to bless you in all that you do,

Gen. John Elkins – USA Under Assault by Obama Administration

Gen. John M. Elkins and Mrs. Elkins

Does anyone give a damn anymore about “Homeland Security” and Sovereignty of the United State of American? 

Do any of the 535 members of both Houses of Congress and the Administration care about the defense of the United States of America like they do about Iraq and Afghanistan?

The past nine years hundreds of thousands of our American Armed Forces have been engaged in fighting insurgents half way around the world in two countries Iraq and Afghanistan  More than 6,500 Americans have been killed in action (KIA) defending Iraq and Afghanistan against insurgents. This month 68 American G.I.’s were killed in action (KIA) by “insurgents” defending freedom for Afghanistan. 

Meanwhile here at home, Mexican cartels (Insurgents) have taken over most of Pinal County Arizona. Government billboards have been erected in Arizona (Sovereign territory of the United States of America) warning Americans not to enter the area because of dangerous well armed and murdering cartel members controlling and protecting their drug business. Numerous American have been beheaded and shot.  Law enforcement officers have been threatened with assassination of their family members if the enforce the law in Arizona! 

Here at “home” in the USA, our leadership from the top on down keep their heads in the sand regarding the defense and integrity of our sovereign southern borders of the USA! 

One doesn’t have to be a “rocket scientist” to figure out what is going on considering the 2010 election coming up November 2, 2010, and their “Democratic legalization of Illegal aliens” (packed with murdering insurgents) adds millions of voters to the rolls in order to assure the uninterrupted socializing of the United States of America. 

Homeland Security’s current secretary was a former Governor of Arizona and apparently turned a deaf ear allowing the southern border to become the drug cartel’s (insurgents) largest free drug entry point to the United States of America. 

Meanwhile, our United States Attorney General is in the process of suing the state of Arizona to prevent their state from defending the remaining parts of Arizona that is presently sort of secured. 

Unless we the people wake up, we as a free nation are doomed!

Jim Long at Fort Worth 912 Project

Fellow Patriots:

Jim Long says OPERATION FIREWALL is a plan of action to take our government back from politicians who are working overtime to bankrupt our economy and steal our liberties.

You may remember Jim from the “Fort Worth 912 Project” from which he broadcast live to a conservative audience hungry for answers.

OPERATION FIREWALL kicks off at The Harbor in Rockwall and Jim needs our help. Below,  Jim describes the various components needed to get this patriotic event on the road, on its way to Tampa, Florida.

November elections may well be the point of no return for our beloved America and her Constitution. Therefore, voter registration, particularly registration of young voters, is paramount to our future.

Please take a moment. Read the flyer. Pray about how you can help – While it’s possible to do so.

Thank you,

Rockwall County TEA Party



My Fellow Americans,

On July 3, 2010 a national voter registration drive will start at “The Harbor” in Rockwall. This one will be different than any before. We will combine quality musicians to entertain those that wish only to listen; with a platform for those of us that have something to say! The goal is to raise awareness & encourage those that have not voted before (especially in a mid-term) to register, get informed and vote on November 2nd.

The event will be broadcast LiVE on and the re-broadcast will be made available to various internet, radio and TV markets. It is my intention to repeat this model as my daughter and I travel from Rockwall to Florida along our Southern border to Phoenix and be at Harry Reid’s house ON September 11, 2010!

I have been in contact with the City of Rockwall Parks and Recreation Department. I have confirmed the bands and many speakers including Brian Malatesta to MC the event. Garland Sound is donating the PA system and stadium lighting system. This alone will leave a lasting impression. Lasers and rainbows incredible….even a popcorn machine!

We are all volunteering our time and equipment and even enlisting our children.

There are a few things I could NOT barter around.

  • The City of Rockwall grounds fee $100.00 per hour X 4 = $400.00
  • The City required insurance quote today = $383.00
  • One City employee $30.00 X 4 hours = $120.00
  • A power generator = approx $250.00 (I am still trying to trade for this)
  • Total $1,153.00 (including generator)

How can you help?

Immigration Reform or Law Enforcement?



Is this what we really want? Do we either need or want revision of our immigration laws? I say no. We have a complex and effective set of immigration laws that manage the annual influx of aliens who wish to make the USA home. Cubans (balseros – rafters) are the only people group permitted to immigrate without prior written authorization under our ‘wet foot, dry foot’ policy.


Immigrants leave their home countries to become permanent residents of another. Ellis Island and Galveston Island were immigration clearing houses of yesteryear.

Thousands of foreign students enter the US annually to attend our universities. They are not immigrants; they are aliens with a Student Visa that permits education and restricts work opportunities. Other legal aliens bear “green cards” to validate legal residency.  These are legal aliens – not immigrants.

USA Student Visa


Green Card



 Persons who are neither Cuban political refugees, nor lawful alien students, are illegal aliens, not immigrants.

 Semantics, you say. True: is it not the purpose of language to accurately communicate ideas?

 Some definitions are in order:

 Immigranta person who comes to a country where they were not born in order to settle there

 Alien – a person who comes from a foreign country; someone who does not owe allegiance to your country


Use of the term ‘illegal immigrants’ imperils our society due to abuses by Democrats and Pelosi-Reid-Obama leftists who wish to convert illegal aliens into Democrat voters. We do not need and we do not want changes to immigration laws that undermine our sovereignty while dissolving our sovereign borders.

Persons who enter our country without our permission are illegal aliens and should be considered no other status.

The real issue is enforcement of existing immigration and border protection laws, as the State of Arizona so succinctly does with its SB-1070.

Let’s change the rhetoric. Illegal aliens are not illegal immigrants, they are criminals.



Earned? This is how it works: the IRS distributes money to qualifying taxpayers as though they overpaid taxes. Confused?

So, where does the IRS get the funds to redistribute to folks who don’t pay taxes? Why, from those of us who do pay taxes, of course.

Sounds fishy – what’s the principle behind the EITC? Karl Marx: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” That sounds like socialism, you say, and you are correct – it’s socialism, aka “redistribution of wealth”.


Under this Democrat program, 50-60%, sometimes up to 70%, of a credit cardholder’s debt can be eliminated, if the cardholder owes $10,000, or more. How does this program work? The Feds pay off the debt with “stimulus money”. Understand that this is not money from Heaven, but either the funds come from US Treasury bills (borrowed) or from taxpayers.

This program rewards irresponsible credit cardholders and punishes responsible credit cardholders. So, where does the IRS get the funds to redistribute to folks who don’t pay taxes? Why, from those of us who do pay taxes, of course.

Sounds fishy – what’s the principle behind Obama’s credit card debt relief program? Karl Marx: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” That sounds like socialism, you say, and you are correct – it’s socialism, aka “redistribution of wealth”.


This program is a little different. Instead of robbing taxpayers to give to non-taxpayers, this program helps unqualified home buyers buy a home. Doesn’t make sense? Right.

With the tax credit, a low-income home buyer can afford to make payments for at least one year. What happens after the first year? Don’t you remember Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?

This program will stall foreclosure rates now, deferring them to another year. An undesirable consequence is it artificially holds home prices above their ‘natural’ price and will greatly contribute to the ‘double-dip’ recession coming to a neighborhood near you, soon. 


On Tax Day 2010, approximately 47% of American households paid no income tax whatsoever. How so? Income threshold, tax credits (see above), deductions and exemptions made this possible. Quick minds will see that about half of all American households don’t pay income taxes.

Is this important? Federal income tax generates about $900 billion per year, slightly less than half of all US Government receipts. Because expenditures continue to climb and “poverty level” continues to be elevated, we who pay income taxes must pay more than ever before. Before long, we will be at WW2 levels of income confiscation.


We the People” are the cure. And, yes, you guys who have “good paying government jobs” have no immunity. The time will come when the federal government will be unable to borrow money to pay your salaries and benefits. What do you suppose will happen then? I don’t want to lose you, now. Yes, you will be laid off, fired, rifted, unemployed.

LEARN how government works and get of this “throw the bums out” stupidity. Wise and thoughtful men and women hold elected office and we need them now more than ever.

PARTICIPATE in local government. No, you don’t have to attend every kind of meeting, but you can do something. I personally attend Rockwall City Council meetings and some P & Z committee meetings. For me, County Commissioners Court meetings are difficult, because they are held during prime business hours.

JOIN an appropriate county Republican club. In Rockwall, we have four excellent clubs: Young Republicans, Republican Women’s Club, Republican Men’s Club and the Lunch Bunch. Dues are modest, so modest even unemployed persons can afford to join.

In any wise, these clubs welcome your participation even if you never join as a dues-paying member. The clubs offer opportunities to meet local elected leaders and your neighbors.

In the famous words of former Speaker of the House, Tip O’Neil, “All politics is local”. If you have no influence in your community, why would you expect to influence Austin or Washington, D.C.? </p>

KNOW your candidates; get sample ballots from the Elections Office or a deputized registrar member of the RCRWC.

VOTE – well, you can’t vote, if you’re not registered to vote. In the most recent City of Rockwall municipal elections, fewer than 5% of our registered voters showed up at the polls. Shameful, indeed.

 How do I register? Two ways:

  1. Visit the Rockwall County Elections Office, 107 East Kaufman Street, north side of the Historic Courthouse square.
  2. Contact Rockwall County Republican Party Headquarters and a registrar will help you.


2010 November elections will probably mark the “point of no return” for America, as we have known her.

However imperfect you may think some Republican candidates and incumbents; our best opportunity to reverse the Obama-Pelosi-Reid juggernaut lies with the Republican Party. Key to supporting and electing truly conservative Republicans is to know them: their voting records, stated philosophies, etc.

The left wing of the Democrat party has taken America to unparalleled government control of business, education, finance and even real estate sales. Obama’s minions now dictate what foods we eat and what can be sold at garage sales.

Next TEA Party – July 17th Taking back the House floor



The showdown in the Senate on the effort to stop the Environmental Protection Agency from imposing draconian regulations worse than the “cap and trade” bill passed by the House last year is coming this Thursday June 10. So you must act NOW to support the Murkowski Resolution of Disapproval. Having failed to get the Senate to act, the Obama Administration is using the EPA to get their way by government order. The EPA has ruled that the American public is “endangered” by greenhouse gases-using the discredited global warming science as its reasoning-and therefore subject to regulation under the Clean Air Act. This means that, once the rules take effect a year or two from now, the EPA would have a stranglehold on the American economy.

Under the Congressional Review Act, Congress has the power to stop this ruling in its tracks, but they must do so this week. Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, the senior Republican on the Senate Energy Committee, is sponsoring the Resolution of Disapproval and plans to put it to a vote this Thursday, June 10. It is a privileged resolution. This means it must be voted on and only needs 51 votes to pass, not the 60 votes often needed in the Senate. This will be a close vote and your call can make a difference.

CALL Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison at (202) 224-5922 and Sen. John Cornyn at (202) 224-2934 NOW AND URGE THEM


The EPA plan to regulate every aspect of our energy consumption was originally designed as a scare tactic for Congress-pass the cap and trade bill or we will do it for you. It hasn’t worked and now the EPA threat is more than a scare tactic-it’s the real thing. The result will be that every firm in America that “emits” a greenhouse gas-department stores, office buildings, apartment complexes, small manufacturers, hospitals-will have to have a government permit. Even the EPA admits this would create a bureaucratic nightmare-millions of permits per year-that would create massive backlogs and stifle business.

The crippled American auto industry would also suffer under this rule, as EPA would have the power to impose its own fuel standard on every American car.

TAKE ACTION NOW! TELL Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison at (202) 224-5922 and Sen. John Cornyn at (202) 224-2934 TO SUPPORT THE MURKOWSKI RESOLUTION AND STOP THE EPA FROM ITS ENERGY POWER GRAB

Although the science behind the EPA power grab is flawed, the issue here is not one of science but who should make decisions affecting the lives of every American? The EPA ruling, once put into effect, will impose a massive regulatory regime on many aspects of daily life as well as a dramatic increase in the cost of utility and fuel bills over time, without one vote by Congress or the American people. Unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats, trial lawyers and activist judges will be making the decisions.

STOP THE EPA POWER GRAB-URGE Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison at (202) 224-5922 and Sen. John Cornyn at (202) 224-2934 TO VOTE “YES” ON THE MURKOWSKI RESOLUTION OF DISAPPROVAL


We at the American Conservative Union thank you for all you do to advance the cause of conservative, free-market principles.




Seniors: are you worried Medicare and Social Security will not be there when you retire? Do you worry no one will be there to help you if you live alone?

Gen. John Elkins offers a ingenious, simple, common-sense plan that assures quality care around the clock, a life of unimaginable luxury that will not cost taxpayers a single dime.

Gen. John M. Elkins and Mrs. Elkins


Gen. John Elkins designed a simple, two-part plan: Let’s put the seniors in jail, and the criminals in nursing homes.


  • senior citizens would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.
  • They’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc. and they’d receive money instead of paying it out.
  • The seniors would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.
  • Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
  • A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.
  • They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
  • They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool and education.
  • Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, P.J.’s and legal aid would be free on request.
  • Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.
  • Each senior citizen could have a P.C. a T.V., radio and daily phone calls.
  • There would be a board of directors to hear complaints and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.


  • The “criminals” would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised.
  • Lights would be turned off at 8pm, and showers once a week.
  • There would be no cable, no radios, no cell phones, and no get well cards.
  • Very few if no visitors.
  • The criminals would live in a tiny room and pay $5,000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out.
  • With this plan, there would be justice for all without ever-increasing burdens upon the tax payer’s dollars!
