TEA PARTY ACTIVITY IS GREATLY INCREASING
I attended the Tea Party California Caucus, a recently organized group consisting of active leaders of Tea Party members on Oct. 5th. This new group attended the California Republican Party’s three day meeting at the Anaheim Convention Center for the first time. It turned out to be the largest outside group attending the convention with many Tea Party members also serving as delegates for the Republican Party. The Tea Party California Caucus was very successful in having four of the five resolutions adopted at the meeting they had submitted for consideration.
In addition the Tea Party California Caucus had a special meeting for local and statewide Tea Party members serving in leadership positions. That meeting started at 4 PM and went on for over two hours with standing room only. They had great speakers on what’s happening with the Tea Party movement. There was standing room only and the large room was packed with many standing just outside the double doors located in the center of all the meeting rooms. All the other large rooms were having similar meetings of other groups, but the rooms were nearly empty with five to twenty people. The enthusiasm was unbelievable and everyone stayed until the end of the program, many staying on to visit personally with speakers and guests. I stayed on an extra half hour or so visiting with others before making my drive back to the Banning/Beaumont/Cherry Valley area where I’ve lived 45 years. According to one speaker we now have over 300 Tea Party groups in California and they expect that number to rapidly grow between now and the 2014 elections. I’m going to pray for three thousand plus Tea Party groups in our state. For the web site of the Tea Party California Caucus, visit their website: www.teapartycc.com. This is a group I plan on joining and supporting. My main effort and work will be on the Banning Beaumont Cherry Valley Tea Party and encouraging start ups in other communities.

I attended a meeting of leaders from conservative groups throughout the Inland area Monday evening at 6:30 pm that lasted until 10 pm. The host for the meeting was the Redlands Tea Party, one of the largest and best organized Tea Party groups in Southern California. We had approximately 20 people in attendance and this meeting was chaired by a chapter leader of Act! Corona. Act! Corona is a conservative group educating the public about the Islam movement that’s been taking place in the United States for many years. Their website is www.actcorona.org. I’m on the email list of Act! Corona and I recently received a fantastic YouTube video about the Middle East. This is the link, just click and hopefully it will open.
During this meeting I was ask to pass out petitions to overturn the new law that a pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records. The group working on this petition drive need to obtain 800,000 signatures by November 1st, 2013, just weeks away. If successful it will be on the ballet next year. If the citizens get it on ballot it will pass based on polls. The petition drive is by ” Privacy For All Students – Stop AB 1266″. Go to web for more info. I have about 35 copies I’m passing out to church leadership in Banning-Beaumont-Cherry Valley area.
This is my first ever blog. Please forgive me for any errors!
