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
Grassroots America – We the People PAC

Top 10 Undeniable Rules for Successful Conservative Activists

Updated 2.15.22 | JoAnn Fleming

We spend quite a bit of time talking about why conservative activists do what they do, but we neglect to revisit what we learned in battle simply because we’re quickly off to the next one.

During this lifetime of conservative activism, I’ve learned a thing or three – sometimes the hard way. Inquiring minds frequently ask how to do it right. Because I believe in steering fellow activists away from landmines, here are my Top 10 Undeniable Rules for Successful Conservative Activists:

  1. “They” will not like you. Get over it. If name-calling and confrontation make you want to throw up or cry, don’t sign up for the front lines. If your heart beats faster when a politician walks into the room, and faster still when they know your name, and if you live to be loved and approved of by politicians, you are a political groupie. You worship politicians.  Do Liberty a favor – confess and repent or – Get. Out. Now.
  2. You must earn the right to lead. Self-anointment and self-appointment don’t make you fit to lead anybody. Recommended reading – a short, but powerful blueprint for servant leadership – John Maxwell’s “The Right to Lead: A Study in Character and Courage.”
  3. Stay out of sandbox fights. If Activist A has a personal beef with Activist B, let them duke it out. Do not allow yourself to be pulled into personal skirmishes. Do not share, forward, or air dirty laundry and personal beefs via social media. It makes you look small, petty, and like you never left grade school.  Giving confidential advice when asked is not sandbox.  Know the difference.
  4. Be a team player when the team has the right goal, but do not lose your own identity and credibility to go along with the crowd. Truth never depends on consensus.If 100 people do something foolish, it’s still foolish.
  5. Participate in group conservative efforts with a liberty-principled focus. Remember to stay tight on the fight to preserve and advance Liberty, while fighting bipartisan Big Government, political corruption, a God-less culture, and the “don’t rock the boat” trap of pragmatism. Remaining unwaveringly true to liberty principles means you must always be willing to be the skunk at the party, the hard-liner at the compromise table, and the toughest person in the room. Be ever aware of snares that lurk in privilege, special recognition, and being accepted in certain circles. (Avoid the shallow, juvenile, “cool kids” rating system.) If you can stay true to the mission while working in a group effort, do it!  Just remember, you are in the fulltime persuasion business for bold, principled liberty.  Lose your credibility, lose your ability to persuade.
  6. Do not bear false witness against a neighbor, candidate, or officeholder. Do not spread rumors, which are unsubstantiated claims. If there’s not enough evidence to prove the case in court, then it’s hearsay. Discard it. Big Government candidates and officeholders have plenty on the public record to oppose. Don’t exaggerate or tell half-truths. To do so is to lie, which will destroy your credibility and potential success because you have badly deviated from God’s Way.
  7. Work hard to persuade those you can, but don’t waste any more time on the perennial ostriches with their heads stuck in the sand. They like it that way because it’s safe, less painful, or popular. Shake the dust off your feet and move on.
  8. Strive to do what is right, at the right time, for the right reason. Wisdom dictates that you don’t always speak just because you can. Too much speaking for the sake of doing so will blend you into the wallpaper and reduce you to background noise.  Be judicious in strategic planning, tactics, and execution, which donot belong on social media billboards. Smart commanders do not advance transmit anything until it is tactically advantageous to do so.
  9. Fire only when ready. Follow Davey Crockett’s advice: Be sure youre right, then go ahead.” Never pretend to be an authority on something you know just enough about to be dangerous. For meetings with public officials, speaking engagements, and media interviews, be prepared. Do your homework and know your topic before you open your mouth. Knowing your topic includes plenty of listening.
  10. Never forget to say “thank you” to the folks who have your back – the team. Successful activism happens when a group of very committed, principled people with varying gifts and talents work together on a wise course to achieve a goal. Some are made to be on the frontlines. Others are best suited for behind-the-scenes work, coordination, strategy, tactics, and resource gathering. Frankly, the most valuable people in the world are those who say, “I’m praying for you” and really mean it.  – JASF

What is Christian Nationalism?

What is Christian Nationalism?

Posted on Nov. 3, 2022, by Patriot Mobile

When parents across the nation spoke out against the destructive indoctrination of Critical Race Theory, they were called racists and targeted as “domestic terrorists” by the US Department of Justice. But these labels didn’t slow their progress or silence their fight. When Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire was attacked for speaking out against men having babies, he defiantly told the cancel culture mob, “Kiss my a**.” Seething in frustration from the failed attempts to silence conservatives with labels and name – calling, the Left has a new label rising in use: “Christian Nationalists.” But what is “Christian Nationalism”? Are “Christian Nationalists” a threat to the United States of America?

What is Christian Nationalism?

Currently, there is no agreed upon definition for “Christian Nationalism.”

“Christian Nationalism” is a blanket term used by the Left to invalidate any Christian who is politically involved and who advocates for the protection of life, our second amendment right to bear arms, parental rights, protection of children from harmful gender transitions, and against Critical Race Theory and more. Their goal is to silence Christians who unapologetically stand up for what they believe in and who do not waver on their beliefs under pressure.

Stephen Coughlin, an attorney and former intelligence officer, explains the origins of “Christian Nationalism” and how it is being used today against American Christians who love their country.

He said that first and foremost, you must look at the use of this term from a political warfare perspective. The use of the term is about intimidating people, namely Christians who are politically involved.

He said that “Christian Nationalism” is an information campaign designed to synchronize with the January 6th narrative. It is combined with that narrative to label Christians as a threat and to be seen as dangerous.

Is Christian Nationalism a threat to the media narrative?

Patriotic Christians have now been classified as “Christian Nationalists.” The left is taking something positive and spinning it to have a negative connotation. Cultural Marxists deceptively equate “Christian Nationalism” to “White Nationalism” or “Fascism” and use it as a derogatory and disingenuous term meant to alienate and disenfranchise politically active convicted Christians.

Labeling someone a “Christian Nationalist” is a strategic element within a demoralization campaign commonly used in political and psychological warfare. Demoralization is a process in psychological warfare with the objective of eroding morale among enemy combatants and noncombatants. Its strategic objective is to encourage Christians to retreat, surrender or defect rather than defeating them in combat. It is meant to “other” Christians. To “other” someone is to alienate them from society. The Jews were “othered” during Nazi Germany. By “othering” Christians, their hope is that we will be silenced, and their perceived threat will be neutralized. This is strategic propaganda.

Denny Burk, professor of Biblical Studies at Boyce College, wrote that the label ‘Christian Nationalism’ encompasses a wide variety of political viewpoints . Media personalities tend to not be aware of the scholarly conversation on Christian Nationalism. Rather, they seem to define it as everything they don’t like about engaged Christians.”

Is Christian Nationalism a threat to the political power?

People who say that “Christian Nationalism” is a great threat to our nation are afraid of losing their own political power. They use the broad and vague term of “Christian Nationalism” to scare people and to malign Christians who do not agree with their le ftist ways.

Christian conservatives are beginning to speak truth to combat this misinformation campaign. In a Grapevine, Texas presentation, American pastor, author and Dean of the School of Divinity at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, Dr. Voddie T. Baucham, Jr. said, “If we’re not going to be Nationalists what are we going to be, Globalists? You can have that, all day, every day and twice on Sunday. No, thank you! No Globalism.” He continued, “what kind is it going to be? Is it going to be Christian or non- Christian? So, color me Christian Nationalist.”

Christians work to advance Christian principles in life, not Christian power. This is a key distinction   between Christian   political   engagement   and   this   so- called “Christian Nationalism” as defined by the Left. Christians SHOULD seek to love their neighbors by pursuing justice in the public square, which includes standing up for life (Matthew 25:40), protecting the rule of law, and honoring the Constitution.

Christian Nationalism is love of God and Country

Furthermore, “nationalism” or love of one’s country is not inherently sinful. However, love of anything over love of The Lord can become sinful. We are called to love Him with all our heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:36-37). Christians know that politics will not be our savior. We only have one Savior in Jesus Christ (John 14:6).

As Christians, we are first and foremost citizens of Heaven (Philippians 3:20) and a part of the body of Christ, which constitutes all believers in Jesus, regardless of where on the earth we reside. Our allegiance is to the Lord, our Savior. However, we can and should still love the country where God chose to place us. We are called to love our neighbors (Matthew 19:19). We should love and seek the betterment of our country. We should be good stewards of the gifts we have been given (Matthew 25:23). We have been blessed to be able to vote and to have our voices heard. Therefore, we must vote!

The argument that “Christian Nationalism” is a threat to America and our government is false. Our own government is a greater threat, as they have forgotten that they are public servants and continue to push godless ideologies on citizens.

Jesus said, “Everyone will hate you because of me.” (Luke 21:17) We should not be surprised at these attacks and false monikers, nor back down, as we are here to please the Lord, not men. “But Peter and the apostles answered, ‘We must obey God rather than men.’” (Acts 5:29) Christians who love America and are politically involved stand in the way of leftist ideologies and leftist power. Do not back down, no matter what name they call you or false accusation they throw your way.

“For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:10)

At Patriot Mobile, we choose to serve God.
