Senator Dan Patrick DOES NOT Speak for Us! Dewhurst Does NOT Have Tea Party Support!

TPCAC 7/26/12 Press Release: Senator Dan Patrick DOES NOT Speak for US!

I am Robin Lennon, the President and Founder of the Kingwood TEA Party, as well as a member of TPCAC and we stand with JoAnn Fleming and the rest of the Texas Tea Party Caucus Advisory Committee. Senator Dan Patrick does not speak for the TEA Party Caucus Advisory Committee or the Kingwood TEA Party, Inc.

The Dewhurst campaign is representing Senator Dan Patrick’s endorsement of him as being indicative of Tea Party support across Texas. Sen. Patrick is entitled to his opinion, but he certainly does NOT speak for the Texas Tea Party Caucus Advisory Board (TPCAC) or for the Kingwood TEA Party, Inc. in the U.S. Senate race.

Could you please forward the attached Press Release from JoAnn Fleming, Chair of the Texas Tea Party Caucus Advisory Committee to as many Texans as possible to avoid any obfuscation or misunderstanding of our position?

Cordially,

Robin

COMMENTARY: Florida has Rubio and Col. West. Now It’s Texas’ turn!

Jim DeMint's SCF Endorses Ted Cruz for US Senate

Endorsed by Sen. Jim de Mint.

Ted Cruz: The Tea Party  Grassroots Republican Conservative Texans’ Candidate

by Robin H. Lennon

I have been supporting Ted Cruz since I first met him nearly a year and a half ago. The longer I’ve known him, the more I respect him, and the greater my belief that Ted Cruz is THE Senator Texas needs on the floor of the U.S. Senate this coming January.

Over time as Washington, D.C. became increasingly more spendthrift and progressive (excepting only a handful of stalwart warriors), the People of Texas have remained true to our principles but our elected officials have too often been politicians who forgot or ignored what our U.S. Constitution and the Rule of Law were all about.

Tonight, however, I stood in a crowd of passionate constitutionalists like myself, listening to a man articulate our principles and values without apology. Like us, Ted Cruz knows that true self-esteem develops when individuals work hard to accomplish their goals or to overcome great obstacles. No one can give self-esteem to another; it is earned by hard work. Like self-esteem, property belongs to the individual who earned it. One’s right to the fruits of one’s own labor and the right to protect it are the marks of free men since time immemorial. As John Adams once said, “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.”

Fighting today’s creeping anarchy and tyranny, Ted Cruz will stand shoulder to shoulder with Jim DeMint, Rand Paul, Pat Toomey, and Mike Hall, and all the other constitutionalists in the U. S. Senate who understand that as government increases, liberty decreases. When the government decides who will receive medical treatment, chooses which businesses succeed and which fail, or where we can drill for oil in Alaska or Texas, everyone’s freedoms are diminished little by little until freedom no longer exists.

The choice for Texans today is between two men. Lt. Governor Dewhurst, who undermined the passing of the TSA anti-groping bill in the Texas Senate because the Obama Administration threatened to declare the State of Texas a no-fly zone, says he cut spending even as Texas spending rose dramatically, and voted for an incognito personal income tax. The second, of course, is Ted Cruz who has a proven track record of fighting for conservative causes for Texans under Attorney General Greg Abbott even when the President of the United States stood with the U.N. against Texas.

As the race tightens up, and a runoff is almost certain, Lt. Governor Dewhurst has unleashed his hordes of dollars to jam the airwaves with more unfounded accusations that Ted Cruz favors amnesty and is against using E-verify to stem the flow of illegal aliens into our State. Dewhurst has refused to discuss the issues before the People of Texas over 30 times during this protracted Primary season, and now he accuses Mr. Cruz of being weak on State Sovereignty. Anyone who has been paying attention knows that Dewhurst is accusing Cruz of his own sorry record.

EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT: His earlier unfounded accusations were presented to Cruz supporters using Occupy-like tactics: shouting in our faces while holding cell phones in our faces to record our shock. My shock was that a supposedly conservative candidate would authorize, let alone pay such a princely sum to the three who crashed our green room where Jim and I waited for our turn to shoot a Ted Cruz commercial.

One of my fellow supporters at tonight’s event told me that what strikes him the most about Ted Cruz is that Ted knows what he believes and why he believes it. Having memorized and studied the Constitution during middle school and speaking on it as well as on the thoughts of Hayek, and Mises at Oratory contests through high school, Ted learned young what many of us are learning late in life—that the Founding Fathers formed our government to protect us from government run amok, and with good reason. We need his principled leadership and constitutional authority on the floor of the U.S. Senate next January.

Ted Cruz is supported by FreedomWorks; the Tea Party Express; by the Texas Patriots PACGrassroots America We the People; the Advisory Board members of the Kingwood TEA Party, Inc.; as well as Tea Party leaders all across the State.  It became even clearer that Ted Cruz is the Tea Party candidate for U.S. Senator from the great State of Texas when former Alaska  Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed him last week (halfway into the poll that shows the Lt. Gov’s lead dwindled to less than 10 points).

However, Mr. Cruz, is much more than just the Tea Party candidate. He is also the candidate of grassroots Republicans across Texas, and of constitutionalists across the State. So many local Republicans who have been fighting the good fight in the trenches for years are welcoming us newer Tea Partiers to fight along side of them as we work to bring our country back to the Rule of Law and its foundational Truths of Liberty, Temperance, and blind Justice for all. We stand united behind Ted Cruz.

But he won’t be able to go to Washington to join the fight for constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, free markets, and individual liberty unless Texans stand united and brush off the ennui of the long Primary season and VOTE for Cruz today.

Donate to the Cruz campaign for our freedom, our children’s freedom, and for the hope of freedom today and in the future. On second thought, don’t vote alone, take others with you to the polls to support Texas’ own Ted Cruz. Every dollar donated will go to media to counter the Lt. Governor’s scurrilous attack ads. Jim and I are donating today; I hope you will, too!

Florida has Rubio and Col. West. Now it’s Texas’ turn!

Join us in sending the BEST Senatorial candidate to the U. S. Senate to fight for Limited Government, Fiscal Responsibility, and Free Markets so American Exceptionalism is once more a reality!

Monday 2/20/12: US Senatorial Candidate for TX – Ted Cruz on TX Property Rights

Endorsed by Sen. Jim de Mint's Senate Conservative's Fund

NEXT KINGWOOD TEA PARTY MEETING: Monday night, 2/20/12 with Ted Cruz.

KWTP has asked Ted to address Property rights in Texas and the US Constitution. We’ll also be discussing Sustainable Development, The Federal Government, and the U.N. This is an important meeting emphasizing the fact the US Gov’t is giving grants to local entities (counties, cities…) to perform testing of recently discounted environmental factors and for implementing provisions of the UN’s Agenda 21. This is important information as many Americans and politicians believe this is a National Sovereignty issue when it is also a State and local issue of extreme importance. Hope you can join us on Monday.

Ted Cruz is a conservative candidate running for the US Senate in the Texas Republican primary.

*************************************
OPINION ALERT: Robin Lennon’s Opinion

Ted is the local Tea Party favorite in this race getting nearly 50% of the Texas Saddle Up votes both in the texting poll as well as the on-site poll, and is the favorite of conservative leaders nationwide.

The grave Constitutional issues facing us because of the dereliction of duty of our Legislative Branch in allowing Czars, Cabinet members, and unelected bureaucrats to spend money and implement law that is contrary to freedom and the Rule of Law makes Ted Cruz, in my (Robin Lennon) opinion the right candidate for Texas in the US Senate. He has a proven record of fighting conservative cases before the Supreme Court–which he won for us as Solicitor General under our great Attorney General, Greg Abbott. Unlike the House, the Senate is not a body where just any populist representative can be elected and hit the ground running, the Senate requires someone upon whom the mantle of authority and past success is a must. Standing shoulder to shoulder with the staunch conservatives of the Senate (Jim De Mint, Mike Hall, Rand Paul, etc.) who have endorsed him, I believe Ted Cruz will help lead this fight.

Cruz Control by Mark Hemingway, National Review

Jim Geraghty National Review interview with Ted Cruz

Mark Levin Endorses Ted Cruz for US Senate

George Will: In Ted Cruz, a candidate as good as it gets

The answer is that he is an exciting young conservative candidate and we are including several links so you can find out for yourself. We are not endorsing Ted, but after listening to all the candidates who will come to Kingwood, the KWTP will vote on a candidate to endorse, and if we have a majority consensus we hope to endorse a candidate and work together to elect a true conservative to represent us in the U.S. Senate.

Ted is a truly committed candidate. After reading the 2009 National Review article last February we called Mr. Cruz’s campaign manager on Super Bowl Sunday to set up a meeting with Ted and the TX Tea Party Caucus Advisory Committee and their leadership boards in Austin on the following Sunday.

On very short notice, Ted left Washington DC the next Sunday and flew to Austin to meet with us and the 40 Tea Party leaders that we brought together on short notice.

Mr. Cruz has since received endorsements from prominent conservatives from around the country including Club for Growth PAC, FreedomWorks PAC, Tea Party advocate U.S. Sen. Mike Lee, RedState.com editor Erick Erickson, President of the Liberty Institute Kelly Shackelford, President of WallBuilders David Barton, and conservative radio powerhouse Mark Levin. Listen to Mr. Levin’s recent interview with Ted at The Right Scoop .

NEXT MEETING: KWTP Meeting:

Monday, 8/15/11: TX Sen. Dan Patrick will join us to discuss the ups and downs of this last TX legislative session

Please read the attached articles and listen to Mark Levin’s interview;  then email me back at Jim@KingwoodTEAParty.com – I’d love to hear what your think.
