Just the Beginning – Kid Grooming Porn Must Go | Tyler Public Library

Metropolitan, self-anointed cultural elites preying on children by normalizing smut & pedophilia will not be tolerated. 

In response to many requests, we are sending out our public statement delivered to the Tyler Library Advisory Board on June 1, 2022.

We are shocked and angered by the documented, grossly obscene materials found in the Tyler Public Library.  Only ONE member of the Tyler Library Advisory Board voted to remove the graphically illustrated book depicting lesbian sex. 
 
There are books in the library that are sexually explicit in nature and accessible to kids under the age of consent. There is nothing ‘alleged’ about the sexually explicit material our team has found in these books. Some city library employees want to pass these off as mere ‘puberty and changing bodies’ information.  That is a lie.
 
Providing sexually graphic and explicit books to minors would be a criminal offense if an adult provided them to a child outside the library.  We don’t care in the least that the pointy-headed, self-anointed cultural elites in the American Library Association and the Texas Library Association think these books are brilliant and liberating and highly recommend them.  Most decent people see this as dangerous smut designed to groom children.  Next stop will be the elected City Council.  The buck stops with them.   
 
Most sincerely,

Our War Against Porn to Kids | Tyler Public Library

When they won’t listen, we go to war! Follow our local campaign to save kids from public library smut. Learn what to do! 

Can we all agree that our children don’t need access to pornographic and sexually explicit books in our public libraries? 

I’m glad you agree. Then the next question: why do children have access to pornographic and sexually explicit books in the Tyler Public Library? 

That’s right. Shockingly inappropriate, pornographic, and sexually explicit materials are in the teen section of the Tyler Public Library.  

The state of Texas recently deemed these same books unsuitable for minors when, with bipartisan support, they passed the R.E.A.D.E.R Act which prohibits sexually explicit materials from Texas public school libraries. 

For over a year, a growing number of community members have made reasonable appeals to the Tyler Public Library Board to relocate materials that are not subject matter appropriate or age appropriate for children to an area of the library that is not accessible to children.

The effort to move these books has largely been ignored by the Tyler Public Library Board! 

They recently voted 4 to 2 to keep the pervasively vulgar and sexually explicit book All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson.  These Tyler Library Board members are appointed by the Tyler City Council, and while they are not directly accountable to us, the Tyler City Council most surely is!  

We’re stepping it up a notch to make your voices heard. 

The Tyler City Council, including Mayor Warren, have all been sent information about, and excerpts from, some of the most offensive books. They have ignored appeals for a town hall meeting and have never once placed this serious issue on their agenda. 

Since they have ignored appeals for a public discussion of community standards for our public library, we have no choice but to escalate our efforts; therefore, to ensure all members of the Tyler City Council are fully informed of the subject matter being debated, at least one page of excerpts from a single book title recently found in the teen section of the Tyler Public Library will be provided to them over a period of thirty days. We are calling this campaign the Dirty Thirty.

When our campaign is over, the Tyler City Council will have been made fully aware of the problem and the solution. It will be up to them to act. 

We intend to help the Tyler City Council understand the following facts:  

  • The sexualization of children through pornographic, sexually explicit materials is a form of sexual grooming that leads to mental health issues and puts them at greater risk of sexual exploitation.
  • Book boundaries are not book bans! The regulation of explicit content does not violate the First Amendment. Between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates public airwaves for indecent and profane content in compliance with federal broadcasting laws, in order to protect children.
  • The removal of sexually explicit materials from children’s collections is supported in legal precedence and comports to Supreme Court decisions, including Board of Education vs. Pico (1982).

These books contain blatant pornography, sexual deviancy, and pedophilia that rape the minds and emotions of children and normalize behavior that promotes the utter degradation of our culture, reducing human sexuality to soul-eating animalistic acts. The destruction of childhood innocence with taxpayer-funded, pervasively vulgar materials readily found in our public library must stop. 
  
The law recognizes that children are developmentally unable to consent to physical sexual activity.  A child cannot consent to mental and emotional rape either!  Parents should and must have the confidence that their children can go to a public library without having their minds raped. Elected officials everywhere should be protecting our most precious resource – children!    
 
It’s just common sense to preserve community standards that will ensure Tyler is a safe and nurturing place for children to thrive. 

We get the government that we consent to!  Let’s show the Tyler City Council that we, the people of Tyler, Texas, do not consent to a government that sexualizes children. 

Let’s get ready to make a difference in Tyler and across Texas!

Most sincerely,

The Attempted Purge of

“America’s Bishop”

Bishop Joseph Strickland

11-12-23 | JoAnn Fleming

The enemy is already here.

Make no mistake.  What just happened to a Bible-believing, Christ-KNOWING Catholic Bishop in the pseudo fairy-tale city of Tyler, Texas, is part of a PURGE – a purge planned and orchestrated by global elites determined to force everybody to accept all manner of chosen deviancy as normal, acceptable, faux god-approved behavior dressed up in “me-ism” – the first doctrine of moral relativism.

The purge’s mission is to rid this world of any who dare speak boldly about the existence of absolutes.

Removal of absolute Truth blesses prideful, pleasure-seeking hedonism.

Hedonism eats the soul, creating hopeless victims who create ever more miserable victims. It’s an evil spawned in Hell and distributed by rebellious evil-doers motivated to win a spiritual battle they can never eternally win.

On Saturday, November 11, 2023, the purge hit very close to home.  We learned that the fiercely brave, yet gentle giant – Tyler’s Tweeting Bishop Joseph Strickland had been fired by the Pope. Why? Strickland refused to recant, apologize, or resign.

Though we prayed it would not be so, this was inevitable – for Joseph Strickland is a man of God who long ago counted the cost of truly following Jesus.  He believes with every fiber of his being and to the uttermost depths of his soul that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life, yesterday, today and forever. He can do no less than submissively serve his King and Master – no matter the cost.

Bishop Strickland often said, “All the efforts to change and twist the truth will fall to dust.”  This reality is indelibly engrained in his being.  He cannot shirk from it.  He cannot sit quietly by while others dilute the Cause and Ways of Christ.

What were Joseph Strickland’s “crimes” you might ask?  He dared say aloud that desecrating human life will have consequences. He dared call abortion murder and publicly called for the Church to denounce Biden’s fake Catholicism. In May, Strickland wrote on the X social media platform, “I believe Pope Francis is the Pope, but it is time for me to say that I reject his program of undermining the Deposit of Faith. Follow Jesus.”  Then, Strickland dared join the June 16 protest at Dodger Stadium, denouncing the mocking, vilely blasphemous Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – a troupe of drag queens. This is when the Vatican pressure unmistakably escalated against Bishop Strickland.

Bottom line – Joseph Strickland dared to speak out against evil – especially the kind that destroys children. Joseph Strickland’s true north is always Christ, and as he stands against evil, he never fails to point mankind to Christ as the ONLY source of Truth.  Strickland’s unrelenting focus on the Christ of Holy Scripture (not the man-made, “rabbit’s foot” jesus) got him into trouble.

We admire Joseph Strickland and thank God for his courageous devotion to Christ and his visibly courageous active faith. He fears God rather than man.  How refreshing!

Frankly, it is the deepest prayer of our hearts that strong, brave Christian men would rise up to join Joseph Strickland.  Our culture, our local community, Texas, and our nation are crumbling for lack of strong, wise, vocal manly men!

Those who claim Christ are the least Christ-like when they embrace a God-less culture because of sheer cowardice. Silence from Christian pulpits in the face of our nation’s cultural rot is blasphemous to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit they claim to serve.

Condoning sin because it is chic, trendy, popular, and applauded is weakness cloaked in counterfeit love. Stripped down, it is a determined, yet futile prideful rebellion against God’s Ways. The Lord God Almighty will not change His mind about willful sin – any willful, unrepentant sin – no matter how loud the demon-inspired protests to Truth become nor how much society excuses and glorifies that sin.

We are so happy and blessed to know a man who will not recant the Truth established in his heart by His Lord and Savior.  God’s Ways are alive in the heart of Joseph Strickland and the Peace of Christ rests upon him.

No doubt, at the end of his earthly sojourn, Joseph Strickland will hear Christ Jesus warmly say,  “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

Those with the spiritual eyes to “see” and the spiritual ears to “hear,” understand all that they are  discerning. They know the hour.

The enemy is already here. 

We are to occupy until King Jesus returns – not pacify.  The purge only works if we are intimidated into silent acceptance.

May you boldly seek the Author and Finisher of the only faith that will stand.

Hot Update: Protect Kids | Tyler Library Smut

Hot Update: Protect Kids | Tyler Library Smut

Thank you to all the volunteers who attended the October 18th library board meeting – the last one of this year!  There were about 50 people in attendance and as usual we were the overwhelming majority.

Sadly, we now know the library board has gone from bad to worse. They unanimously made the horrible decision to KEEP the book called “People Kill People” in the 14+ section. In case you’ve forgotten, here is the link to excerpts from it  Dirty Book #5 People Kill People.

Anyone who would like to send a professionally-worded email to the city manager about this book is welcome to do so by emailing Ed Broussard at ebroussard@tylertexas.com.

The next board meeting will likely be in mid- to late-January.  We will keep up the pressure by submitting book reconsiderations until we get more results.   Stay tuned for more information.

THANKS SO MUCH for your ‘Never Say Die’ persistence!

Citizens Speak Out in Letters to the Editor

If you are a subscriber to the Tyler Morning Telegraph, you should have noticed articles and letters to the editor about the Tyler Library controversy. Informed citizens sent in great letters that countered misinformation about “book banning,” which is an intellectually lazy buzzword coined by the Left and used by officials who should know better.  Moving books OUT of a section of the library used by minor-aged children is NOT book banning!

How many times must we repeat this fact:  Under the law, children cannot give consent to sexual activity! Sexual activity with a minor-aged child is rape.   It therefore follows that minor children cannot give consent to having their minds and emotions raped by sexually explicit, pervasively vulgar books. What about this concept is too hard for Tyler City officials to grasp?

NOW, GOOD STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW

 We have compiled and posted resources for you!

So far, our elected officials have managed to evade direct contact with actual constituents – the voters and taxpayers who have every interest and right to speak out about library standards.  This is especially true when it comes to sexually explicit, pervasively vulgar books that are accessible to minor children.

We are hearing from Tyler residents that city council members are turning down the opportunity to attend coffees and meetings in neighborhoods if the subject matter is going to be “the library.”  We find that appalling.  Don’t you?

Isn’t it interesting how friendly these people are when they are campaigning and looking for endorsements?  EVASION is NOT a good look for an elected official!

The mayor and council members have refused to even put this topic on a City Council Agenda to discuss!  That means they have NEVER legally discussed the issue; therefore, the matter remains unresolved!

Let’s give them another chance!  Interested in inviting your Mayor and Tyler City Council member to an informal meeting in your district?

At the end of this exercise, we will either learn that our elected officials are interested in hearing what we have to say, interested in managing city business lawfully, OR we’ll learn that they are still hiding from their responsibilities and ducking their oath of office!

Let’s have an honest conversation about this!

Texas 2023 Constitutional Amendments Voter Guide

Texas 2023 Constitutional Amendments Voter Guide

These Amendments = the Legislature’s “Get out of Jail Free” card. They’re asking you to “bust” their spending limits for them!

Voters, beware! You are being used to grow government! Here’s how:

The Texas Legislature wanted to spend more money than allowed by the Texas Constitution. They were constitutionally constrained from spending all the money by the Tax Spending Limit in the Texas Constitution, which limits spending growth of “state tax revenues not dedicated by this constitution” to no more than the growth of the state economy.

So, instead of doing it themselves, they are asking voters to change the state constitution, using you – the voter – to “bust” the state spending limits with the Constitutional Amendments on the November 7, 2023, ballot. They KNOW turnout for these amendment elections is very low and that most of the amendments pass!

If Texas voters fall for it, their approval gives the Texas Legislature the authority to permanently grow state government. If these amendments pass, it will increase spending by at least $13.8 Billion over the next two years.

How Does This Happen with a Republican-controlled Texas House and Senate?

Conservative spending hawk and subject matter expert on economic, regulatory, energy, and fiscal policy, Bill Peacock explains, “ The limits of the Tax Spending Limit can be exceeded if “approved by a record vote of a majority of the members of each house.” But voting to exceed the spending cap meant Texas politicians would be faced with another constraint – angry Texas voters who might object to their increasing spending by $56.5 billion while only putting $12.7 billion into property tax relief.”

Meanwhile, conservative economist and Texas budget specialist Vance Ginn says that these spending propositions “will grow government with new funds dedicated outside of the spending limit without legitimate roles for government, and prop 4 would narrow the school property tax base by raising the homestead exemption, thereby necessitating higher tax rates – making it more costly for Texans and making it more complicated and longer to eliminate those taxes.”

You can fight back! You can say “NO” to growing state government.
