TX Freedom Caucus Releases Priorities

TX Freedom Caucus Releases Priorities

TX Freedom Caucus released 10 legislative priorities while TX Senate & House GOP Caucuses are deafeningly silent- yet again. 

 JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director, Grassroots America – We the People

Do you ever wonder why MOST elected officials exhibit a casual, not-in-a-hurry attitude about the state of our culture and nation?

Meanwhile, you scratch your head, maybe swear a little, and yell at what passes for “news,” while experiencing the warp speed unraveling of Liberty, the jeering ridicule of your traditional beliefs and values, and reports of deviant satan worship on national television.  You fear what the future might hold for your children and grandchildren. You reel at rising property taxes, grocery, gas, and electricity prices and the instability in your retirement fund.

But do you hear a loud, incessant roar to stop any of it from the people you hired at the ballot box? Or are they too busy taking selfies with adoring fans, each other, and laughing it up down in Austin?

The Texas Freedom Caucus of your state legislature released their list of ten priorities with details. We’re sharing their press release with you below. We hope they are successful in their stated quest to defend and advance Texas-style freedom, but we wait to see how their written legislative priorities translate into action.

Will they really FIGHT for these priorities? Will they listen to the conservative grassroots? Will they kill bad legislation or stand back and let it happen?

Meanwhile, yet again, the Republican Caucuses of the Texas Senate and House have not released any priorities. They don’t have a list of bad laws to repeal.  They don’t have a unified written plan to restrain government, stop evil child predators, outlaw sex change butchery on kids, ban WOKE, ensure election integrity, medical freedom, grid security or border control.  Why? 

Where oh where is the majority Red Team
we hired at the ballot box
in November to run the show in Austin? 

Do you know the legislative priorities of your State Senator and State Representative? If you don’t, you better start asking.  How?  It’s simple and quick. Just go to grassrootspriorities.com and send them a personal question from the boss – YOU!

Your silence heard by elected officials = approval.  

Do not be silent!

In a Constitutional Republic…

In a Constitutional Republic…

Government is the servant, not the master of the People! 
Assume the role of master before it’s too late.

 JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director, Grassroots America – We the People

Government is the people’s business, and every man, woman and child becomes a shareholder with the first penny of tax paid. With all the profound wording of the Constitution, probably the most meaningful words are the first three, ‘We, the People.’” – Ronald Reagan

A community, a state, a nation is known for what it tolerates. The independence of a free people is utterly dependent upon the principle “Government is the servant and not the master of the people.”

Both sides of the servant/master equation are at fault for the mess we find ourselves in today.  

First, too many elected officials don’t believe they are public servants. They believe they are our all-knowing, enlightened masters and are either ignorant of their statutorily-mandated duty to conduct open government and to hear our redress of grievances against them, or they willfully, wantonly ignore that duty and behave as if they are accountable to no one – least of all the taxpaying rabble.

Then there’s the amiable, “nice guy/gal” types who just aren’t used to swimming with political sharks, are easily buffaloed by people with law degrees, just want to be loved, enjoy being in the “cool” group, and soon find they are in over their heads. The result? An elitist oligarchy that starts conducting the people’s business in back rooms just because they’ve come to believe they are smarter than the people who pay the freight, and they figure somebody in the justice system will always be there to save their bacon.

This is how we’ve completely lost sight of the American Revolutionary War principle of Liberty found in our Declaration of Independence.  We have lost “Consent of the Governed” in our local communities, in Texas, and in this nation, leaving government to stomp all over our liberty and pillage our children’s heritage for Big Government Utopias we never asked for.

The second ingredient in this toxic, public corruption-breeding stew is the fact that most people do not see themselves as the masters. Most people – the intended Masters of Government – fall into at least five discernible categories:

1) the ignorant, who just don’t know any better;

2) the afraid, who fear business or social retribution for speaking out against the local ruling class;

3) the clueless groupies, who treat all elected officials as rock gods and would never, ever dare object to anything they do – especially if the officials are Republican;

4) the cronies, who love sloppy, stupid government as long as their head can be in the trough and their pocketbooks on the receiving end of special deals; and

5) the above-it-all detached ostriches who just don’t give a rat’s rear end.

Under the Austin Pink Dome, special interests abound, unconstitutional retroactive bills to distribute corporate welfare are signed into law, the state pours money into “Welfare for Sports and Big Tech,” and powerful legislators in both parties manipulate the system and profit from it.  Meanwhile, we’re still begging for secure elections, property tax relief, accountability for public schools, and for somebody, somewhere to stop groomers, pedophiles, and pointy headed educrats from corrupting our children with deviant smut.

In Washington, DC, federal officials shred the US Constitution every day, and leadership for both parties just stand by and let it happen.

Local government officials tell you that your county, city, school district, fill-in-the-blank special taxing district is as “lean” as it can be with no waste.  They declare they’ve cut your taxes and that taxpayer-funded bonds for noble causes will only cost you pennies, yet your property tax bills keep skyrocketing.

Tolerating political chicanery and unbridled corruption will get you more of the same, and in bolder, bigger doses.  When will you decide you’ve had enough?

Grassroots America believes YOU can, and YOU must hold elected officials accountable. Our mission is to empower, educate, and unite those citizens who care about their children, grandchildren, and Liberty; those who do care about Truth; and those who are sick of the mess we find ourselves in.

If you’re fed up, sign up for our alerts. Attend a meeting. Raise your hand.

As long as rulers are above the law, citizens have the same type of freedom
that slaves of any era had on days when their masters chose not to beat them.”
James Bovard

Holes in your Budget Getting Bigger?

Holes in your Budget Getting Bigger?

Sticker shock at the grocery store? At the gas pump? Inflation have you worried? Brace yourself!

Most homeowners and businessowners will see an inflated property tax bill! (Rent increases for renters.)

Haven’t seen your property tax bill yet?  It’s on the way! Once you see it…

Are you confused by the Grand Canyon distance between the tax-cutting promises made and the reality of what you now owe?

Are you frustrated because no matter how many times politicians tell you they’re reducing your property taxes, your bill keeps climbing?

Are you puzzled because your local elected officials have bragged about holding the tax rate steady for the past bajillion years, but your property tax bill still increases – every single year?  

Are you suspicious when folks pushing local bond elections for courthouses, convention centers, schools, and parks say, “People over the age of 65 won’t pay more”?

You should be suspicious!  Every time a bond election passes for a “noble” cause, the property tax debt burden for ALL taxpayers goes up.  The result?  The taxes of folks over the age of 65 will NEVER go down because this long-term debt will not be paid off in your lifetime! Weren’t you promised your taxes would go down someday?  We think people asking you to pay more should at least tell you the truth – the whole truth!

We call all of this The Long Con.  The deceivers count on the average citizen not understanding simple concepts these politicians twist and distort to their re-election advantage. Then, queue the clapping seals trained to treat these deceivers like royalty every time they walk into a room. This is how the long con of the “How Can We Fool Them Today?” strategy works.

What can you do? Learn how to spot the long con and reject it!

Watch the short 25-minute video below produced by Republican State Senators Bob Hall and Paul Bettencourt.  It is instructive and eye-opening.

Hall and Bettencourt discuss bonds, appraisals, the property tax burden in Texas and how some local taxing entities are maneuvering around property tax reforms AND defiantly issuing debt for bond projects the voters rejected at the ballot box.

Watch and learn. Prepare to push back on the long con in your community!  

Drag Events Targeting Kids | Hegar’s Response

Drag Events Targeting Kids | Hegar’s Response

We vigorously reject the smut, deviancy, grooming, and culture rot aimed at kids.  All of it is designed to de-sensitize children so they will accept the advances of sexual predators.  The Cultural Marxists are aiming for normalization of pedophilia.  The signs are everywhere.   

We will work with anybody to help parents and grandparents save their children from this evil.  We don’t just intend to “fight it” as some politicians like to say.  We will call it out, expose it, define it as purely evil, and unite with others to chase it over a cliff and into the sea. (I hope most of our readers understand that reference.)

When Chris Hopper with Texas Family Project asked us to share his organization’s joint statement with American Principles Project (Terry Schilling), JoAnn decided to just call Comptroller Glenn Hegar to talk it over first.  After listening, she asked him to send a written statement Grassroots America could share.  He was willing to do so.

We are sharing both statements without editorial comment.  These statements and the seriousness of the matter will lead to further discussion of statutory jurisdictions and whether or not existing statutes provide the proper “ammo” we all need to fight this evil. 


Time for answers and solutions – not idle talk.

As always, please let us know if you have
a “protect the kids” project your group
wants to share with others
or something that needs exposure.
Resist the evil until we win!

Dateline: July 16, 2014 | Texas Grassroots Leaders Demand National Guard at Border, Special Session

We’ve been here before – during the Obama Administration. Our message to Republican Gov. Rick Perry and Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott was the SAME eight long years ago as it is today in July 2022! This time we are asking Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton to act!

On Wednesday, July 16, 2014, Grassroots America organized a news conference in the Speaker’s pressroom at the State Capitol. Assembled were various TEA party leaders from around the state.

The leaders called on Governor Rick Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott to declare an “invasion” and invoke Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the US Constitution, call up the Texas National Guard and the Texas Military as defined by the Texas Constitution and secure our border! 

Grassroots America’s Executive Director JoAnn Fleming was joined by Dr. Margarita DeLa Garza-Grahm (Tyler surgeon), Ken Emanuelson (Grassroots Texans Network), Maria Espinoza (the Remembrance Project), Jim Gibson (Texas Border Volunteers), Roberto Gonzalez (Clear Lake Tea Party), Larry Korkmas (TFIRE), Alice Linahan (Women on the Wall), Ray Myers (Kaufman County Conservative), Mike Openshaw (Texas Legislative Watch), Katrina Pierson (Garland Tea Party/Dallas Tea Party).

Dateline: September 3, 2014 | Texas Border Crisis Action Plan


Six weeks later, on September 3, 2014, Dale Huls (Bowie County Patriots, formerly Clear Lake Tea Party) and JoAnn Fleming released an incredibly detailed and deeply researched “Texas Border Crisis Action Plan:  A Plan to Secure the Border with Mexico and Protect the Health, Safety, and Economy of the State of Texas.”

Grassroots leaders from across Texas spoke with numerous elected officials – from State Senators and State Representatives, the Governor’s Office, the Texas Attorney General. US Senator Ted Cruz, (Cornyn was already a border sell-out back then), and several US Representatives. Any action on their part? Nope. The border is still wide open, isn’t it?

We are so thankful that Wade Miller, Russ Vought, and Ken Cuccinelli with Center for Renewing America understand this issue from a Constitutional perspective. It matters NOT that this has never been tried before. The Founders sacrificed to give Americans tools to preserve sovereignty and liberty! We should use them no matter how much the media and the cheap labor lobby howl.

Center for Renewing America has been working non-stop, imploring Arizona and Texas officials to act on the Constitutional solution to a federal government that has purposefully neglected its Constitutional duty to its citizens.

You Are Fighting Evil 

Republican Party of Texas Delegates and Alternates,

Thank you for your time and financial sacrifices to serve as the RPT Platform-setting troops there on the ground in Houston! Your work is vital as cultural Marxists, smut peddlers, drag queens, and their enablers shamelessly push to normalize behavior that distorts the minds of children and destroys lives.

Declaring all-out war on traditional values and Christianity, the radical Left has made our children the battleground.  They intend to groom children by normalizing and promoting transgenderism.  This is the road to normalizing pedophilia.  Not on our watch!

The short video above is our encouragement to you to fight to save children from this evil scourge!  

May God direct and bless your work this week in Houston!

Always Joshua 1:9,

JoAnn Fleming
Executive Director
