Maggie Maxwell with local attorney, Chris Byrd, who was a contributor to the text and supporter of the American Law for American Courts bills which passed the Senate and almost (but not quite) made it to the floor for a vote in the House. Chris gave a blow by blow account and said they are going after it again next time.
Drs. Andre Kulisz and Tommie Dahlmann. Dr. Kulisz gives a monthly report on the reality of Obamacare. He said that premiums will increase as much as 40% in 2016. We are waiting to hear the Supreme court decision concerning the subsidies in states that did not form an exchange.
General Paxton spoke to a rapt audience.
“It’s a war,” said General Paxton,…whether we are going to be a nation of Constitutional laws…or not!
Almost every issue that Texas has with the federal government has to do with the Obama administration operating outside of Constitutional guidelines.
Some of the legal issues the Texas Attorney General is dealing with which were discussed are immigration, same sex marriage, Obamacare and EPA issues. Read the notes here...
Getting to know Islam
A Brand New, Up-to-Date Presentation
What are the beliefs of Islam and how will they impact America? ISIS, caliphate, peaceful religion, jihad, radicalized, Sharia, and so many other terms related to Islam are heard every day, but their meanings and significance to us may be clouded. As guest speaker, Mr. Phil Vasile will present a clear view into this unfamiliar culture.
Phil Vasile is a retired 30-year veteran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department - Reserve Deputy Sheriff. He is a U.S. Air Force veteran, an IBM software engineer and an adjuct professor of computer science at National University. Presently, he volunteers with the McQueeney Volunteer Fire Dept. and speaks on a number of topics for groups throughout Central Texas.
Last year Boerne TEA Party Patriots were privileged to hear Vasile speak on how the 45 goals of communism are being realized in America today. This new presentation on Islam and how it is affecting America and the world will be an eye-opening event. He will explain how the split to Sunni and Shia occurred, it’s significance, and illustrate the demographics of muslims versus others in the U.S. and globally.
Visitors are always welcome to out meetings. Please join us to understand more about Islam and why it matters to us.
Also: Mr Vasile's own statement of purpose from his blog is:
"My primary motivating force with this blog is to educate the public on what is happening in our country and ‘why’. Having over 30 years in law enforcement, and a great deal of experience in educating people on numerous subjects through my careers, my desire is to continue that endeavor by informing people of what is happening and why."
