King George, Virginia


27 July 2020


Fellow Members of the King George TEA Party:

As noted in the earlier e-mails I sent out, we are preparing to host a rally under the banner of One Nation Under God.  Planning continues and I will send out more about this over the next couple of days.  There are a few things that we will absolutely need and here is where you can provide a big assist.  I will call for volunteers to direct traffic within the parking lot, to pass out agendas to the car drivers and small American flags to the children, and coordinate the volunteer “cruisers" carrying American flags in a loop along Main Street.  More to come in a later e-mail but please do lend a hand in this effort where you can.


The woke mob has now hit King George County.  Below is a link to an article regarding the two monuments located at the King George Courthouse.  When I read this article I recounted the phrase posted on another website that said, “Don’t let Orwell’s book ‘1984' be a how-to manual.”  Unfortunately, it appears that KG’s David Jones, of DRHT fame, didn’t get that message.  Jones’ biggest complaint is that the monuments honor “the wrong people” and therefore should be removed from public view.

It amazes me how someone like Jones can be so arrogant as to say a thing like that.  America is the greatest nation in the world not because we “get it right” the first time but because we are a learning culture able to admit our shortcomings, take corrective action, and work to make a better future.  That is why history, studying history, and historical monuments are so important.  Such is also why religion is so much of a part of our national heritage - because grace, forgiveness and hope for the future are part of the deal.  We need the benchmarks of our past, even if flawed, to ensure that such errors are not repeated.  Aside from that, who is Jones to say that his perspective is more important than of those that erected the monument in the first place?


Many of you attended the meeting last month where we had an excellent presentation on ANTIFA.  More information from the briefing’s presenter and his cohort is available here:


And now, some TEA Party-related news….


TEA Party / Nationalism Movement

From the top article below:

"But it was as an outspoken black conservative that Lloyd made his mark.  Steadied by his heartfelt Christian convictions, Lloyd found the hard and lonely path of the black Republican to be no overwhelming challenge.  Though dismissed and insulted as an "Uncle Tom," Lloyd never once revealed a sliver of doubt about his convictions."


Taxes / Taxed Enough Already

From the top article below:

"The chief reason for all the red ink is the federal response to the coronavirus. To date, policymakers have authorized an estimated $3.6 trillion in federal spending, according to the Peterson Foundation.  However, that amount will likely increase as Congress is expected to approve another coronavirus relief bill, provided that the two chambers agree on a package."


Regulation

From the top article below:

See the graphic below and note that Virginia is #26 out of the 50 states when it comes to COVID mortality.  Now ask yourself why we Virginians, especially those of us in rural counties, are treated with a "one-size-fits-all" approach to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?"


National Debt / Its the Spending, Stupid!

From the top article below:

"In short, it’s chaos. In some districts parents are left questioning the sanity of decisions to return to a 50/50 schooling schedule (2.5 days at school, 2.5 days at home for online learning) when the risk of COVID spread and infection among children has been proven to be almost negligible. Rand Paul outlined as much when he questioned Anthony Fauci at a recent hearing on COVID related issues."


Patriotism / America First

From the top article below:

"'This is not peaceful. None of you represent black lives.'"


First Amendment / Freedom of Speech / Freedom of Religion

From the top article below:

"Wilson has filed suit against Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, claiming his church was a victim of discrimination and that his religious freedom was violated.  'It’s absolutely unbelievable that the pastor would be charged for having six people over the 10-person limit, and at the same time, Gov. Northam significantly hurt his case by encouraging mass protests and limiting this church to a 10-person limit,' Staver said."


Second Amendment / Right to Keep and Bear Arms

From the top article below:

"Judge F. Patrick Yeatts said a new state law that mandates federal background checks on all private handgun sales was unconstitutional because federal law only allows those 21 or older to purchase handguns from federally licensed dealers. The Virginia law would have made it illegal for adults under the age of 21 to purchase handguns in the state. The temporary injunction grants a reprieve for residents between the ages of 18 and 20 but left the rest of the law intact, as the court weighs a lawsuit brought by Second Amendment advocates."


Fourth Amendment / Right to Privacy

From the top article below:

"After the positive COVID-19 test last week, Elizabeth Linscott declined to sign papers from the Hardin County Health Department that stipulated she would not travel anywhere without first notifying the department. She said that she was uneasy doing so because in the case of emergencies, she did not want to feel bound to seek health department approval before going to the emergency room.  Days later, the Linscotts were visited at home by several masked health department officials and county sheriff's deputies."


Abortion / Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

From the top article below:

"'With recent events unfolding, everybody knows about the Black Lives Matter murals unfolding around the nation,” he said, according to the news report. “I thought I would bring awareness to one of the biggest human rights crises that nobody wants to talk about.'"


Corruption / Rule of Law

From the top article below:

"What history will record as the great COVID scam of 2020 is based on 1) a set of untruths and baseless assertions—often outright lies—about the novel coronavirus and its effects; 2) the production and maintenance of physical fear through a near-monopoly of communications to forestall challenges to the U.S.. ruling class, led by the Democratic Party, 3) defaulted opposition on the part of most Republicans, thus confirming their status as the ruling class’s junior partner. No default has been greater than that of America’s Christian churches—supposedly society’s guardians of truth."


Conservatism / Capitalism

From the top article below:

"We have built statues and memorials to recognize individuals and events representing some of the noblest — and even some of the worst — moments in our history. The people memorialized didn’t lead perfect lives, and many did controversial or even evil things, but monuments help tell our history and help us remember our highest ideals — as well as the mistakes we’ve made and wish not to repeat again.  If localities decide that some of their public statues need to come down because they no longer represent the values of their community, then the proper course is through the democratic process and civil dialogue, not mobocracy.  But if politicians ignore or even tacitly encourage these mobs, they will declare more and more things offensive until they have targeted every Founding Father, every religious institution (some are even calling for the removal of images of Jesus because His representations are 'too white'), and virtually any symbol of 'oppressive' Western civilization."



Anarchy / Communism / Socialism / Creeping Socialism

From the top article below:

"There must be first principles where all morality and virtue originate and are universally accepted by everyone in order to construct a civil and just society. The Founding Fathers did exactly that in creating a country based on the writings and ideas from some of the Enlightenment thinkers, primarily Locke and Montesquieu, whose philosophies emphasized individual freedom. But the Founding Fathers also included the all-important biblical morality without which the Constitution as they wrote it would probably not have been the same. In the Constitution, the rights of the individual were elevated so they would never by subject to arbitrary or capricious power of the state, which is exactly what identity politics does and that the new social justice movement is advocating."


Information Denial / Censorship / Social Media Censorship

From the top article below:

"Christians are routinely mocked, their religious icons besmirched and now even vandalized by those on the left.  Recently, statues of many famous Americans have been defaced, vandalized, moved, or destroyed.  First, the Marxist mob came for the low-hanging fruit, Confederate generals and those clearly associated with slavery.  But bloodlust is not easily sated, and soon they assaulted monuments to those with tenuous connections to slavery, racism, or the Confederacy.  Then they went after those who had no connections to them — those who had, in fact, literally fought them. Statues of Abraham Lincoln, the man who was assassinated as a result of his unshakable opposition to the Confederacy's actions and his proclamation freeing the slaves, were targeted."


Deception / Propaganda / Social Engineering

From the top article below:

"Loudoun County is adding "social justice" to the mission of teaching elementary school students reading, writing, and arithmetic. The Washington, D.C., suburb—the richest county in the country—has teamed up with the Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) education arm Teaching Tolerance to develop its new curriculum. The proposed lesson plan recommends restructuring history and social studies classes to emphasize slavery as fundamental to American society for students from kindergarten to the fifth grade."


Attacks Against Conservatives

From the top article below:

"'I was required to meet with [human resources], the superintendent, and my principal [on July 10]. They initially took my statement on why I tweeted those tweets and they told me they would have a decision about my future employment in the upcoming days. When they completed the meeting, I was told I had the option to either be fired or resign,' Kucera told the Washington Free Beacon.  He refused to resign."


Elections / Vote Integrity

From the top article below:

"'Then you throw in all the dysfunction that is the U.S. Postal Service … and it begs the question, why are we doing this if not but for intentional manipulation to a certain end,' Engelbrecht said. 'This is engineered chaos. We need to see it for what it is. This is not an effort to make sure that those who’ve been affected by the pandemic are going to be able to cast their ballot in a secure and well-defined process. It’s anything but that.'"
