TPP Call – 9/17

1. Constitution Minute; Chris Wright

Black Lives Matter continues to be one of the leading leftest attackers on the attempted destruction of our Constitution.

2. DC Report; Bill Pascoe

* Twelve new US attorneys were confirmed

* The debt ceiling review has been officially suspended. The suspension will be removed on December 8th. The plan appears to be to reset the debt limit on the 8th with all of the interim congressional approved incremental raises.

* Senator Graham and one other senator have proposed a new obama care change bill. The bill does not repeal obama care, but includes the following:

– Shifts significant parts of bill funding from the fed to states,
– Drops the employer mandate requirement,
– Drops insurer bail outs,
– Makes the obama care formula for state to state funding more equitable.
– Proposes dropping fed funding for abortions. However it also does not repeal any obama care taxes & keeps the congressional obama care exemptions.

In a TPP poll, the bill was rejected. However, JBM is still proposing support for the bill.

* Tax reform; Stay tuned.

3. TPP calls for action:

– There are six TPP important petitions on the TPP web site that every one needs to push for signing.
– The 9/23/17 DC meeting needs as many attendees as possible.
– No senators or representatives will be attending the 9/23 event because of the impending Jewish holidays.

There are socialist efforts in process to undermine our 14th amendment rights, that is, to make the names of contributors to private organizations public information.

2. D.C. Report; Bill Pascoe

This week, the Senate confirmed 104 persons, including Wray as FBI director. AG Sessions announced a crackdown on government information data leaks.

Mitch McConnell, et. al. are giving 8 million dollars to help try to defeat Mo Brooks (in the Alabama Senate race to replace Jeff Sessions). There is a call to action on the TPP economic agenda: tax reform (Make America Great Again). Tea Party members are urged to call their congress people and contact local newspapers. Two Qatar and one UAE airlines are working to undercut inter airline fare agreements. This can result in major airline service cut backs. Request that Tea Party members contact the President’s office to make him aware of this. Two ballot requests were presented during the webinar.

Tea Party Patriots Call 7/16/17

1.- Randall O’Toole of the Cato Institue spoke on: “U.S. Land Use & Transportation Policy” or “Smart Growth” or” Urban Growth & Transportation”.

Stated intent: To restrict auto travel by moving into dense city housing and increasing rail travel. (Sounds like communism to me). This policy was started during the last Bush presidency. O’Toole stated that he has founded “The American Dream Institution”. His intent is to attempt to cease U.S. funding of “Smart Growth”. There is an ADI meeting in Arlington, Va. next month. Smart Growth is now controlled by Dr. Ben Carson”s federal department. Mr. O’Toole noted that Smart Growth funding by the U.S. is out of control. His example, a recent U.S. $75 million grant to Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. for a two mile long street car line. His second example is the state of California. It is currently the most expensive state to live in in the U.S. Largely because 95% of the people live on 5% of the land in California. Mr. O’Toole noted that Smart Growth is being pushed by transit groups, greens, & U.S. urban planners. Mr. O’Toole’s email address is: ROT@americandreaminstitute.com.

2.- Chris Wright’s constitution Minute: U.S. enemies are trying to undercut the U.S. Constitution by pushing a “Living Breathing Constitution”. Essentially their warped ideas.

3.- Bill Pascoe: D.C. report. Wray confirmation for the FBI director is moving slowly along. The Senate is adding “Veterans Choice” to the new budget bill to gain leverage. Senator Cruz’s, option amendment to the current senate o’care replacement bill has been severely diluted. The vote on this bill has been delayed by Senator McCain’s surgery. The Trump Jr. meeting with the Russian shows contemplated collusion but no follow through and no laws broken.

4.- At this point, I lost connection with the webinar.

TPP Conference Call – 7/9/17

Special Guest was Senator Ted Cruz.

Sen. Cruz Health Care Update:

a. The two dangers are; fail to repeal or pass a fake repeal bill
b. His focus: reduce costs by adding options. He has added this feature to the current senate bill.
c. Rino’s will very probably keep the current o’care taxes. (Also; my opinion, they consider Obamacare as an entitlement. They never cancel entitlements.)
d. Probably the most important issue that impacts congress members is their re- election fetish.
e. Current Congressional switchboard calls are only 25% pro Obamacare repeal.

Conclusion: Senator Cruz has an excellent understanding of the current Obamacare repeal effort. He and Senator Lee are our key supporters and our best hope to unlock the current Obamacare debit lock on our economy.

Tea Party Patriots are currently conducting a major campaign to make direct Congressional member requests to repeal Obamacare. (See the Tea Party Patriots Website)

In addition, we welcome discussions and questions about current national and world events.
