Former CIA Spy,
Eric Burkhart to Speak about Intel Situation in Washington, D.C.

Kendall County Texas Tea Party will host Eric Burkhart, a former CIA case officer at its August 10th meeting in the Boerne Public Library.
Burkhart’s talk will explain some aspects of intelligence collection, including surveillance of US citizens, approval of FISA requests and masking and unmasking of U.S. citizens. 

    He is greatly disturbed by what has occurred in Washington D.C. since the Nov 2016 election of Donald Trump.  He thinks it is important to shed light on the actions of certain folks in D.C. who have horribly abused a very delicate system that exists solely to protect the United States. Eric welcomes the opportunity to explain enough of the system for people to decide for themselves the truth behind the Russia/espionage controversy.

    Burkhart spent time in the war zones of Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan.  Poisoning by the Russians left him with a permanent disability.  His book “Mukabarat Baby, My Life As A Wartime Spy For The CIA” tells his story.

Doors open at 6:00, meeting starts at 6:30 p.m., public welcomed.

Tom and Kathie Glass
Can You Even Imagine…
...no electric power across the nation for perhaps years? That would mean no transportation (no gas), no food in stores (no deliveries), no water, no banking (no checking, no credit, no access to savings) no communications (all electricity driven), no security systems anywhere, and well… lots of darkness, discomfort and danger! 

Could it happen?
“Threats to our power grid include solar flares, a nuclear blast in space creating an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP), cyber-attacks, and portable EMP device or physical attacks on key components of the grid.” by Tom Glass in Breitbart Texas

Texas has a unique opportunity.  Texas has its own power grid.
We could mitigate this threat..…and it would not be terribly expensive and it could be done pretty quickly.

Why haven’t we protected our grid?
A bill in the 2017 Texas Legislative session has passed the Senate, but was held up in the House State Affairs Committee, again. It was similarly killed in 2015.

Come and hear Tom Glass, a retired security and controls analyst living in Houston, explain the need for action, what can be done, and how to get it accomplished. Also read Tom Glass’ article, which, although written in 2015, is still very much where we stand today. Read more about Tom Glass' credentials in the Bio section; click on his photo.

Also, Kathie Glass will provide a performance review of Governor Greg Abbott.

Home Schooling in Texas: What happened in the Texas Legislative Session and General Issues for Home Schooling in Texas

On Thursday, the Kendall County Texas Tea Party will feature Jeremy Newman from the Texas Home School Coalition (THSC). Jeremy will discuss home school related issues that came up in the recent legislative session, as well as general home schooling issues in Texas.

Jeremy became Director of Public Policy for THSC in the fall of 2013 after serving as policy analyst on the 2013 Watchmen Team.  Jeremy is a home school graduate and has been involved in home schooling from an early age, when he moved to Texas from California. The third of six children, Jeremy now lives with his wife Addi in Dallas, where he teaches Lincoln-Douglas debates in the NCFCA, a national home school speech and debate league.

Doors open at 6pm and the public is welcomed.

Our staff and volunteer network of more than 100 Texans with home schooling experience is what makes us the experts in all aspects of home schooling in Texas. And we’re here to serve you!

EVENTS

April Meeting:

 Discussion of a Convention of States
...or is it a Constitutional Convention
...or an Article V Convention 
...or a Con-Con?

Is it a Good Idea or a Bad Idea?


Thursday, April 13th, 2017
6:30 - 8:00pm
Patrick Heath Public Library
451 North Main Street
Boerne, Texas​​

​​
The wisdom of applying for a Convention of States, also known as a Constitutional Convention, a Con-Con, or an Article V Convention, will be the topic of our forum for April.

Under the constitution there are two ways to propose amendments.  An Article V convention of states has never been used successfully.  Some believe it was put there for times like these so “we the people” can get back control of a federal government which has far exceeded the bounds of its Constitutional limitations. 

Others believe it’s a dangerous option that could result, as the 1787 convention did, in a “runaway convention” that could change the intended nature of our Constitutional Republic. They also believe that politicians who currently ignore the Constitution will not change their behavior just because there are new amendments.

Currently 28 (depending upon where you look) of the necessary 34 state legislatures have approved an Article V convention.  Governor Abbott has made it one of his top 5 priorities.

Convention of States is a group in favor of the convention option and will be represented by Doug Richter.

Kelly Holt of the John Birch Society, who believes the answer is simply to adhere to The Constitution, will represent opposition to an Article V convention.

Both sides agree the federal government has become to big, intrusive, inefficient and expensive.  The question is how to fix it.

Doors open at 6:00pm, the forum begins at 6:30pm, to be followed by a question and answer period.
