KING WILLIAM T.E.A. PARTY
The Next King William T.E.A. Party Meetings:
Nov 12, 2020

In view of the many controversies surrounding the county’s 2017 & 2018 budget, rejection of split assessments and other factors, KWTP is exploring solutions for reigning in the creeping growth and expanding cost of government. We hope the Board will prove up to the Task.

Brief updates on local, state and national issues. Come early if possible and see another of the stirring and inspiring videos we've found. The Meetings starts at 6:30PM - so come on in and have a seat. They begin promptly at 6:30 PM and you'll be out by 7:30 PM.

KWTP continues to take the lead with credible information on a variety of hot-button issues at local, state and national levels.

Wharton's Olivia Mitchell and Leora Friedberg of the University of Virginia discuss the $4.4 trillion public sector pension shortfall.

Not Enough time, Not Enough Money

Sanitation workers, firefighters, teachers and other state and local government employees have performed their duties in the public sector for decades with the understanding that their often lackluster salaries were propped up by excellent benefits, including an ironclad pension. But Moody’s Investors Service recently estimated that public pensions are underfunded by $4.4 trillion. That amount, which is equivalent to the economy of Germany, accounts for one-fifth of national debt. It’s a significant concern for public employees who were banking on a fully funded retirement to get them through their golden years.

Welcome to the King Willam Tea Party Website
"2020 - Past Year"
Page.

******************************************************************

Below are the Events we have had and the ones we have in the works.We want to keep the citizens of
King William County informed of issues on a local, state and national level.

The King William TEA Party is an independent political movement loosely aligned with other local, state and
national TEA Parties. We are a grass roots movement who take our name from a historical act of defiance against
the King of England when Americans thought they were "Taxed Enough Already".

We believe in a return to sound fiscal policy at the federal, state and county level. We believe in Federalism and
the limits of federal power that our founders intended.

The King William Tea Party does not condone nor will it tolerate racism, sexism, or religious intolerance or bigotry
in any form within the ranks of its membership or at any of its sanctioned events.  Such beliefs, attitudes, and
activities are contrary to the basic rights of all humankind as outlined in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and
Declaration of Independence.

Our goal is for this site to keep you informed of political events, news, and issues that are important to you, the
citizens of King William County Virginia.

Our meetings begin promptly at 6:30 PM with Locations to be Announced.


**********************************************************************

Welcome Visitor !
Are you here to learn what KWTP has EXPOSED ?


King William T.E.A. Party ( Taxed Enough Already ) has earned a well-deserved reputation as the “only conservative voice in King William.

Over our brave history of eleven years we have exposed numerous examples of both county government and school personnel either misleading or outright lying.

This has come at a serious price of official, cowardly retaliation to some of our supporters.

The most recent (and well documented) incident was exposed in the paid ad we ran in the COUNTRY COURIER's June 24th issue.

Presenting official county records for land assessment vs. actual sales, it exposed without a doubt the County Administrator's misleading public assertion that “land values have remained level.”

Why is this important? Because it showed how the scandalous Land Use Tax Exemption Program (special tax breaks for millionaire “farmers”) and shifting the tax burden to homeowners and businesses has to be covered up by promoting false information.

The ad – reproduced on our web page and Facebook – shows the rising land values from 2015 to 2019 but most recent land sales were well above assessed (and taxed) values.

But, hiding behind cover of the County Administrator's false statement, the Board of Supervisors quietly passed on the opportunity this year to rein in the sweetheart deal their millionaire supporters and benefactors have been getting for the last six years.

Conveniently by law, this tax-shifting onto the backs of regular folks can't be changed until the next round of reassessments; years from now.

Sadly, the two local area newspapers haven't found the need to report this, appearing to be content with just acting as a “stenographer” for the county's official propaganda. No balance allowed from opposing views in their “news” items on county statements and BOS proceedings.

Now, recognizing that most people get their news on social media more than never before, KWTP has launched a concerted effort to support this trend to help get the word out.

Very often, our website (thanks to webmaster Paul) is recognized as one of the best sources for real KW news and information, as is our FACEBOOK page ( thanks Fred ) with hundreds of LIKES.

Unless and until the PC censors shut this down, we will continue to investigate, validate and report what we've found.

Now, if you're still reading, you need to consider the 5/10/85% Rule. 5% of Americans are well informed, 10% somewhat informed and the remaining 85% are... shall we charitably say CLUELESS....

We urge you to be among the active and involved 5 to 10 % citizenry.

Come back regularly to our WEB and FACEBOOK pages. After all, it's your wallet their picking and your family their mocking that the millionaires and their lackeys are making fun of.

King William Commissioner of Revenue’s Office audited, loses staffer amid property reassessment;
improper tax collection, poor bookkeeping, report shows

KING WILLIAM — The King William Commissioner of Revenue’s Office is being audited and losing a staffer after refusing to take part in the county’s reassessment process, one of the essential functions of the office.

Without Commissioner of Revenue Sally Pearson’s involvement, the reassessment revealed that nearly 500 properties weren’t being taxed, some for as long as a decade. The reassessment is expected to increase the county’s tax revenue by more than 25%, a significant increase needed to fund other departments.

KING WILLIAM — A King William County financial inquiry into the Treasurer’s Office found nearly $2 million of uncollected real estate taxes, numerous bank accounts at multiple banks, and treasury employees handling taxpayer dollars without supervision.

The county launched the probe mid-June after several citizens came forward expressing concerns about unpaid taxes. Since then, the county has spent months scrutinizing the office’s practices and handling of funds.

2.5 Million ‘Extra’ Registrants on Voting Rolls
by BREITBART

Fitton: Judicial Watch Finds 2.5 Million ‘Extra’ Registrants on Voting Rolls – Warns 5 States to Clean Up or Face Federal Lawsuit

One of the most important things we can do in this election year is continue to force states and counties across the nation to comply with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA).

And we are. We have sent notice-of-violation letters to 19 large counties in five states that we intend to sue unless they take steps to comply with the law and remove ineligible voter registrations within 90 days. Section 8 of the act requires jurisdictions to take reasonable efforts to remove ineligible registrations from their rolls.

These 378 counties combined had about 2.5 million registrations over the 100%-registered mark, which is a drop of about one million from our previous analysis of voter registration data. Although San Diego County removed 500,000 inactive names from voter rolls following our settlement with Los Angeles County, San Diego still has a registration rate of 117% and has one of the highest registration rates in the county.

We found major voting list issues in California, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, and Colorado.

In 2018, the Supreme Court upheld a massive voter roll cleanup that resulted from our settlement of a federal lawsuit with Ohio. California also settled a similar lawsuit with us that last year began the process of removing up to 1.5 million “inactive” names from Los Angeles County voting rolls. Kentucky also began a cleanup of up to 250,00 names last year after it entered into a consent decree to end another Judicial Watch lawsuit.

Vet KING WILLIAM, VIRGINIA August 5th, 2020

King William T.E.A Party volunteers cleared away brush on Etna Mill Road in the northern part of the county so that motorists could get a better look at an important reminder for a recently elected member of the Board of Supervisors.

The group hopes the new sign message prompts the citizens of Supervisor Ed Moren's 5th District ( Mangohick ) to raise the question regarding his promise during last fall's campaign to lower taxes.

New real estate assessments are coming in a few months and it is expected that they will be 20-25% higher, prompting enormous tax bills for the already burdened homeowners in King William.

"VDOT encourages individuals and groups to do roadside cleanup," said Robert "Sarge" Bruce, KWTP Secretary, "so our group's civic-minded volunteers are ready and willing to step up and help."

KWTP celebrated its 11th Anniversary on August 13 with a meeting at Ripleys Family Restaurant.

WHO Official Urges World Leaders to Stop Using Lockdowns as Primary Method Against CCP Virus
By Ivan Pentchoukov October 11, 2020 Updated: October 11, 2020 - The Epoch Times

The World Health Organization’s special envoy on COVID-19 has urged world leaders to stop using lockdowns as the primary control method against the spread of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus.

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” David Nabarro told The Spectator in an interview aired on Oct. 8. “The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.”

Nabarro pointed to the collateral damage that lockdowns are having worldwide, especially among poorer populations.

“Just look at what’s happened to the tourism industry, for example in the Caribbean or in the Pacific, because people aren’t taking their holidays. Look what’s happened to smallholder farmers all over the world because their markets have got dented. Look what’s happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. Seems that we may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition because children are not getting meals at school and their parents, in poor families, are not able to afford it,” Nabarro said.

“This is a terrible, ghastly global catastrophe actually,” he added. “And so we really do appeal to all world leaders: Stop using lockdown as your primary control method, develop better systems for doing it, work together and learn from each other, but remember—lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer.

"Four Months of Unprecedented Government Malfeasance

May/June 2020 • Volume 49, Number 5/6 • Heather Mac Donald
Imprimis is the free monthly speech digest of Hillsdale College


Over the last four months, Americans have lived through what is arguably the most consequential period of government malfeasance in U.S. history. Public officials’ overreaction to the novel coronavirus put American cities into a coma; those same officials’ passivity in the face of widespread rioting threatens to deliver the coup de grāce. Together, these back-to-back governmental failures will transform the American polity and cripple urban life for decades.

Before store windows started shattering in the name of racial justice, urban existence was already on life support, thanks to the coronavirus lockdowns. Small businesses—the restaurants and shops that are the lifeblood of cities—were shuttered, many for good, leaving desolate rows of “For Rent” signs on street after street in New York City and elsewhere. Americans huddled in their homes for months on end, believing that if they went outside, death awaited them.

Governor Ron DeSantis Announces the “Combatting Violence, Disorder and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act”
On September 21, 2020, in News Releases, by Staff

Proposed legislation includes new criminal offenses and increases penalties for individuals involved in violent or disorderly assemblies

Winter Haven, Fla. — Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced new legislation to stop violent assemblies and protect law enforcement. The proposed legislation, the “Combatting Violence, Disorder and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act,” creates new criminal offenses and increases penalties for those who target law enforcement and participate in violent or disorderly assemblies.

“Our right to peacefully assemble is one of our most cherished as Americans, but throughout the country we’ve seen that right being taken advantage of by professional agitators, bent on sowing disorder and causing mayhem in our cities,” said Governor DeSantis. “I will not allow this kind of violence to occur here in Florida. The legislation announced today will not only combat rioting and looting, but also protect the men and women in law enforcement that wake up every day to keep us safe. I look forward to working with the Florida Legislature next session to sign this proposal into law.”

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel’s War Against the Elderly
By Wesley J. Smith - September 21, 2020 Updated: September 23, 2020 The Epoch Times

No group of Americans has been more deleteriously affected by the COVID-19 pandemic than our elderly. For younger people without significant preexisting health conditions, the novel coronavirus usually comes and goes without serious consequences.

But for the elderly—particularly the frail and those with comorbidities—it’s a terrible killer.

Indeed, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the risk of death for COVID-19 patients aged 65 to 74 is 90 times higher when compared to the risk of death for COVID-19 patients ages 18 to 29. The risk of death for patients 75 to 84 is 220 times higher. And get this: For patients age 85-plus, the risk of death is a staggering 630 times higher.

JBS comes to KW


King William, VA, October 8, 2020

Michael Smart, a Regional Field Coordinator for the John Birch Society, brought this group's traditionally conservative message of God, family and freedom to the latest meeting of the King William TEA Party.

Speaking to Thursday evening's gathering at Ripleys Family Restaurant, Smart stated the Society's immediate mission to “build a moral and informed electorate,” emphasizing the wisdom of America's founders in establishing a Constitutional Republic.

“Direct democracy that's being pushed by many groups today is the tyranny of majority rule,” he said. “It is destructive of liberty because there is no law to prevent the majority from trampling on individual rights. But a republic is a government of laws under our Constitution, holding the government in check.”

Asked why the Congress and Federal government can get away with so-called “laws and regulations” that are clearly unconstitutional, Smart pointed out that the abuse of authority has happened because we have lost sight of basic principles.

“Nowhere does the Constitution authorize providing foreign aid handouts, unemployment benefits, subsidized housing, agricultural price supports or any other wealth-redistribution schemes, “ he declared.

The JBS remedy to this overreach comes in two forms. First, Smart said, is holding our elected officials accountable to their oath to “support and defend the Constitution.”

Then, to employ “the power of 500, where we work to educate and motivate those in our peer groups and others. It's all spelled out on our website jbs.org”

T.E.A. Party hears militia presentation

King William, VA , September 24, 2020

Top officers of the recently formed King William County Virginia Militia explained the group's mission and structure at King William TEA Party's latest meeting.

Speaking to Thursday evening's gathering at Ripleys Family Restaurant, militia commander Daniel Winters and executive officer Jeremy Hester, both US Navy veterans and county residents, emphasized the organization's legal foundation under the US Constitution and Virginia law.

“The Code of Virginia identifies the 'unorganized militia' as all able-bodied residents between 16 and 55 who are US citizens,” Winters noted, “that's the basis for who we are and what we do.”

Hester explained that one of their first actions was to meet with King William's Sheriffs Department to offer assistance if needed in certain situations.

“We're purely defensive, prepared and trained to help local and state law enforcement authorities,” Hester said.

Winters said that membership has grown to several dozen local residents, mostly US military veterans, and newcomers are invited. Veterans are strongly encouraged to join, but no experience is necessary.

“All prospects are carefully screened,” he said, ”and we enforce a strict code of conduct.”

The group's information handout has a formal Statement of Purpose:

“King William County, VA Militia's purpose is to protect and defend the United States and our Constitutional form of Government; to protect and promote the well-being of the citizens of King William County, and surrounding areas; to assist our community with any natural or man-made disasters; as well as to provide back-up assistance to state and local law enforcement agencies, including King William Sheriff's Department and Virginia State Police.”

Statue of Jesus Found Toppled, Beheaded in Miami, Church Says


By Jack Phillips July 19, 2020 Updated: July 19, 2020 The Epoch Times

A statue of Jesus Christ was found toppled and beheaded at a Catholic church in Miami, an act of vandalism that probably will be investigated as a hate crime, church officials said.

The attack that occurred sometime between late on July 14 and the morning of July 15 at Miami-Dade’s Good Shepherd Catholic Church was likely targeted, Rev. Edivaldo da Silva said. The statue was decapitated and removed from its pedestal, he said.

“This crime reflects the increasing attacks on the Catholic church across the country,” the archdiocese said in a statement, referring to a series of arson attempts on churches in recent days in the midst of nationwide unrest.

Similar acts of vandalism have included the toppling of the statue of Rev. Junipero Serra, the priest who founded the California mission system. In another incident, a man attempted to set a Florida church on fire after crashing into it earlier this month. Meanwhile, a statue of the Virgin Mary was desecrated in Tennessee over the weekend.

The pastor of St. Stephen Catholic Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee, found the statue decapitated on July 18, according to the Catholic News Agency. The statue’s head hasn’t been located.

“….land values remain level ?

When introducing her recommendations for the upcoming budget, King William County's Administrator noted that the new round of real estate assessments had residential values increasing some 20%, commercial values increase 5-10%, but “land values remain level.

Wait a minute ! Isn’t land a part of both ? Would the reason behind her illogical assertion be to continue giving very generous tax breaks to some of the county's wealthiest landowners while raising taxes on ordinary homeowners and businesses?

What data could the County Administrator be referencing that she based that statement on---and why would she SAY what is clearly not true ?

Key to this deception is the per acre values – $612 ( Forestry ) and $1500 ( Agriculture) – that are special reduced rates only for land in the Land Use Tax Exemption program. This obvious undervaluing can only be corrected/adjusted in the year that a new assessment is underway. And it just so happens to be this year when homeowners are going to get hit with much higher assessments.

In comparing actual King William County LAND Sales for the years 2015, & 2019, facts reveal an inconvenient truth. It should be obvious what drives county officials to continue to mislead citizens on something so vital to a county with a relatively small tax base, and the desire to shield their favored sons from higher taxes:

Vet































Our County Administrator owes the tax paying citizens of King William an E-X-P-L-A-N-A-T-I-O-N. How did she arrive at the assertion that LAND VALUES HAVE REMAINED LEVEL ? Equally important is for home owners and small business owners to understand the cynical tax burden shifting game being run on them by the Board of Supervisors.

Why the Secrecy about Hospital Beds and COVID-19?
Posted on April 28, 2020 by James A. Bacon | 7 Comments


Anyone remember why the country is locked down?

I do.

With images of Italy’s collapsing healthcare system and Italian death panels doling out beds and ventilators in early March, we were told we had to take radical steps so that American hospitals would not be similarly overwhelmed by the COVID-19 virus.

“Fifteen days to slow the spread,” they told us.

And we complied.

Fifteen days became 30, which then became 45 and in some places — like Virginia — the shutdowns have no end in sight.

As you sit at home, worrying about your mental health, your job, your finances and your family do you ever wonder just how many beds are occupied by COVID patients in the hospital nearest you?

Good luck finding out.

Why Illinois Is In Trouble – 109,881 Public Employees With $100,000+ Paychecks Cost Taxpayers $14B
Adam Andrzejewski - Senior Contributor Policy


Illinois could soon be the first state in history to have its bonds rated as “junk.” Last month, both Moody’s MCO and Standard & Poor’s downgraded Illinois debt to just one notch above junk status.

Last week, the Illinois State Senate President Don Harmon (D-Chicago) wrote a letter to Congress requesting a $41.6 billion bailout. Critics balked.

In many ways, Illinois may have already crossed the Rubicon.

Mr. Shannon,
Perhaps you’ve not had the chance to review or were not aware the revised draft budget proposal has been posted on the County website for some time now. I have attached it for your convenience and the URL is: https://kingwilliamcounty.us/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/FY21-Budget-Proposal.pdf. It is based on the County Administrator’s best projections given the circumstances we all face in these trying times. Of particular note:

FY21 Budget KW County Website
or go to : https://kingwilliamcounty.us/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/FY21-Budget-Proposal.pdf

The revised FY2021 budget is projected off of the following scenario:
Calendar Year 2020 to be set by Board in April to remain at $0.86/$100
Calendar Year 2021, to be set by Board in April 2021, calculated at a $0.73/$100 rate. This lines up with the 1% increase per Virginia statute for the reassessment.
Fiscal Year 2021 budget is built off of two separate assessment rates and tax rates:
FY2021 real property will be due in December 2020 at the 2014 assessed rates at $0.86/$100.
FY2021 real property will be due in June 2021 at the 2020 assessed rate at $0.73/$100.

I hope you will use this new information to revise your letter to better address the positive efforts the BOS and our Administrator have been working on under truly unprecedented conditions.

Addressees -- Despite KWTP's polite but persistent questioning since March 26th, our esteemed Chairman of the Board of Supervisors and several other county officials haven't bothered to respond.

However, they've finally gotten around to quietly posting the new instructions on the official website https://kingwilliamcounty.us/

Gosh, do you think they're hoping most concerned citizens won't notice?

At any rate, you can bet the "turnout" (virtual) will be more tax trough feeders and fewer advocates of cutting taxes and spending than it should be under established policies, procedures and statutory requirements:

Must Read: National Debt Is $122 Trillion, Not $23 Trillion, Says Non-profit Group
Written by Bob Adelmann


When Epoch Times’ Mark Tapscott checked the U.S. Treasury’s “Debt to the Penny” website on Monday, he reported that the U.S. national debt just ticked over to $23.3 trillion. That’s four times what it was 20 years ago.

Tapscott then checked in with the Chicago-based nonprofit advocacy group Truth in Accounting (TIA) to get a more accurate reading. Said Bill Bergman, the group’s director of research, the Treasury misses the real national debt by $100 trillion, explaining that “the U.S. Treasury does not include the unfunded obligations for Social Security and Medicare.”

The Consequences of Failure
written by Michael Giere December 4, 2019

It’s a new crowd of extremists whose bite will be worse than their bark.

The consequences of political inaction, lack of public outreach, and intellectual timidity always end poorly in politics.

For confirmation, look no further than the Commonwealth of Virginia, where the radical left upended more than two decades of feckless Republican legislative control. The left now owns the top three statewide offices, the House of Delegates and the Senate. (Also, several important county attorney seats were won by extreme-leftists selected and funded by George Soros’ political operations.)

The consequence is that Virginia is now only a month away from taking the first significant steps towards joining it’s corrupt, anti-life, anti-faith, anti-liberty, anti-business, and high tax northeastern neighbors like Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.

Revolution

It is often said war is when the politicians tell you who your enemies are, and revolution is when you figure it out for yourself.

And right now in Virginia we are in the middle of a new Revolution, one based upon the founding ideas of our Republic and led by the people, not the political class.

The true result of the November 2019 election is not the ‘blue wave’ of power in the General Assembly as Democrats have taken the majority in both Houses, but rather best seen in the town halls, meeting rooms and gun shows where a sleeping giant for liberty has awakened.

And this is not a re-hash of the ‘Resist’ movement the political left has adopted since President Trump’s election, but rather a full scale political revolt. We are not simply playing defense against tyrannical laws, but rather going on the offense to take Virginia back.

One not led by politicians, nor talking heads, nor the establishment, nor political parties or even the media, but rather a movement unlike ever seen before in this century, a true revolution of the people.

Gun-Rights Leader: Virginia ‘Second Amendment Sanctuary’ Movement Just Getting Started

By Stephen Gutowski - November 27, 2019 1:45 PM

The head of the group pushing Virginia counties to refuse to enforce unconstitutional gun laws, declaring themselves "Second Amendment sanctuaries," told the Washington Free Beacon he has seen an unprecedented groundswell of support that he expects to only grow.

When Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) president Philip Van Cleave spoke with the Free Beacon on Tuesday afternoon, 15 of Virginia's 95 counties had passed sanctuary resolutions; five more joined that night.

Van Cleave said that his group would typically garner up to a hundred people at the General Assembly for past gun bills, but that nearly a thousand showed up to support the sanctuary proposal in rural Bedford County.

Wharton's Olivia Mitchell and Leora Friedberg of the University of Virginia discuss the $4.4 trillion public sector pension shortfall.

Not Enough time, Not Enough Money

Sanitation workers, firefighters, teachers and other state and local government employees have performed their duties in the public sector for decades with the understanding that their often lackluster salaries were propped up by excellent benefits, including an ironclad pension. But Moody’s Investors Service recently estimated that public pensions are underfunded by $4.4 trillion. That amount, which is equivalent to the economy of Germany, accounts for one-fifth of national debt. It’s a significant concern for public employees who were banking on a fully funded retirement to get them through their golden years.

The Jan 23 at 6:30 pm meeting:

Main topic:
State: Virginia General Assembly continues on it's march towards stricter Gun Laws-----where is this headed ? Is the push back from concerned Virginians too little too late ? Which of these new bills are likely to gather enough support in the General Assembly to become law ? The Virginia Supreme Court sided with Governor Northams order making the State Capitol a Gun Free Zone by banning any firearms at today's Rally. This is an ominous sign, and likely headed to the U.S Supreme Court.

Local: I have sent an e-mail inquiring as to the reported purchase of 4 properties by King William County. The County Administrator suggested in her statements that some county functions had outgrown their space, or words to that effect. When they have the money......they are going to spend it, and in GRAND STYLE. Just what is the County Administrator and this new BOS up to ?

A continued discussion on a new Chair for the group is in order, We will pick up where we left off on January 9

Meanwhile, KWTP is open for discussion and comments at Facebook
https://www.facebook.com/pages/King-William-County-TEA-Party/105478799495338

Main Virtual topics:

Reluctantly acknowledging the Chinese Virus mass hysteria and our esteemed Governor's latest edict restricting public gatherings to max. 10 persons, KWTP will reluctantly comply despite the absence of any valid statutory authority. How does this square with the 1st Amendment's guarantee of Freedom of Assembly?

Meanwhile, the politicians and the poltroons who prop them up for personal gain are delighted that the angry peasants are penned up in their overtaxed shantys.

Ah, but we have the internet to learn what they're up to and then speak truth to power. As such, here's some of what we all need to know:

KING WILLIAM: As required by law, the county has publicly posted its plans for a wild tax and spend binge in 2020-2021. Never mind that America's economy is crashing. See it for yourself at

https://kingwilliamcounty.us/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/FY-2021-COUNTY-ADMINISTRATOR---S-BUDGET-PRESENTATION-3.23.2020-Corrected-3.19.2020-1.pdf

Conveniently, the scheduled Board of Supervisors (BoS) meeting for Mar 3rd was CANCELED and it's a darn good bet that the LAST Budget Public Comment meeting, previously scheduled for April 6th will be CANCELLED too:

https://kingwilliamcounty.us/calendar/

But hey, you can submit your opinions in writing. And the poobahs at Horse Landing Road promise to take them seriously before voting in the coming weeks.... By mail to 180 Horse Landing Rd. #4, King William, VA 23086; by FAX to 804-769-4968; or email to countyadmin@kingwilliamcounty.us

BREAKING NEWS: We just got this from KW's County Administrator:

The FY2021 budget will be brought to the public to the very best of our ability during this challenging time. We will definitely comply with statute and solicit input from the community whenever and however possible.

Be sure to read KWTP's paid ad in the COUNTRY COURIER's April 1st issue (no foolin'). It has some inconvenient truths and several tough questions to ask the Board's Three Budget Stooges and the two newcomers. Remember that Mr. Moren (Mangohick Dist.) campaigned on CUTTING taxes?

STATE: In Richmond, the arrogant Democrat Carpetbagger majority, aided by some Republican Scalawags, succeeded in setting fire to our Commonwealth's few remaining conservative principles. How bad is it? You ain't seen nothin' yet:

The Virginia General Assembly passed bills to raise the minimum wage, let local governments remove Confederate statues, transform the energy landscape in response to climate change and grant legal driving privileges to undocumented immigrants. And that was just Tuesday.

Only for those with strong of stomachs: https://leg1.state.va.us/

NATIONAL: President Trump continues efforts to reform government despite vicious opposition of the Deep State and the Wuhan Woes/Chinese Virus crisis. Most everyone is watching the “news” so we don't need to go into any detail except to ask What happens next?

LOCAL: KW's Board of Supervisors met on July 27th. What mischief ensued ? And here's what happened at the "Special Called Meeting” on Aug 6, because, of course, it's "FOR THE CHILDREN." KW shoveling out the rest of the $1.5 MILLION in the latest “free money” from DC, stolen from the future earnings of our children and grandchildren (and probably their children too ) The King William school division is set to receive more than $400,000 in county coronavirus relief funds, as well as $170,000 from the county’s restricted general funds in order to meet technology and repair needs ahead of school reopening in September. Also, who will step up to be a new Chair for the group?

STATE: When the General Assembly comes back again on August 18, we'll take a look ahead to what these carpetbaggers and scalawags have in mind on more gun control, more taxing for the Chicom-Virus infected budget as well as proposing additional “criminal justice and policing reforms”

NATIONAL: The relentless assault by Democrats and the Media ( yes, one and the same) intensifies as lawlessness gets worse. We'll get the latest on what Judicial Watch is doing and much more. Paul has put it on our webpage and it can also be found on YouTube.

******************************

Oct 8

The Oct 8 at 6:00 pm meeting :

The Main topic will be a Speaker from The John Birch Society.

Our guest Speaker this evening comes to us from a renowned & widely respected organization, the John Birch Society. Who was John Birch ? What is the organizations goals today ? Here to give us more detail and to answer those questions is Michael Smart. Mr. Smart is the Regional Director and Development officer. He first joined the JBS in 1995 and quickly became the local Chapter Leader. He turned a struggling chapter into an effective force in his community. His effectiveness was recognized and as a result he was hired as a full time Field Coordinator in 1998. Mr. Smart has worked for the organization in 40 States.

Mr. Smart has been married for 30 years and has four children. He is a native Californian and has called Richmond Virginia home for the last 15 years

Q & A after Mr. Smarts presentation ( allot 10 minutes for Q & A )---15 minutes for Presentation

Local : A review of the K.W County B.O.S Meeting from Monday September 28 . A question has arisen over a statement by Supervisor Stephen Greenwood ( Aylett 3rd District) and current Chairman regarding the disbursements from a banking account controlled by the Treasurer's office. In the recorded version of the meeting ( reviewed via YouTube ) Greenwood references that the "schools need to spend what has been appropriated and nothing more" . Apparently during the recent audit of the Treasurers office questions were raised regarding routine and frequent transfers of money from this particular bank account to the schools. Efforts are underway to ask the Chairman more specifics on just what he said. If the Treasurers and the Commissioner of Revenues office warranted an "audit" at significant expense to local taxpayers, then perhaps an audit of the schools are also in order, given what Supv. Greenwood said.

State : A number of candidates have announced their intent to seek the Republican nomination for the Governor's race next year. This week Former Delegate Kirk Cox formally announced his intent to run and Virginia Senator Amanda Chase ( R-Chesterfield ) has been running for some time now. Chase spoke at a luncheon in Mechanicsville on Thursday October 1, which I attended. I will share her public comments and review former Del. Kirk Cox's actual record over what was a rather long tenure in the Virginia House .

National : In less than a month now Americans go to the polls to choose the next President. What should we expect ? How long after November 3rd will some states continue to count ballots ? Will the election ultimately be settled by the U.S Supreme Court , and if so just how important is it the nominee Amy Barret be confirmed. In a disturbing development U.S Senator Mitch McConnell has said some things that indicate the nomination may not go forward before the election.

******************************

Our Following Meeting is

Oct 22

The Oct 22 at 6:00 pm meeting :


Local : Fred Krauss will detail the highly irregular examples of where this County Assessment Process raises numerous disturbing questions. We have others ( Ray Carter ) in the King William Community who plan on speaking of their own findings. Assessed values routinely are 20-30% below sales prices. In this New Assessment ,assessed values closely track recent sales prices. Is this purposefully being done to fund the considerable County spending increases we are hearing about. We think it is, but come listen to the information and make up your own mind.

: How much money has been spent and the disruption to traffic patterns at the Intersection of 360 & Route 30 ? And for what...bicycle paths and cross walks, which begs the question just how many people will ultimately use this ? All occurring during a time of record public debt.

State : Virginia is reporting that the decline in Public School enrollment stands at 37,000. State funding is set to be cut by several hundred millions of dollars if these numbers hold. Is this a reason to think our King William County School Board will come clean on their own enrollment, or their pending 2021-22 Budget Request ? After all if the number of students are in decline shouldn't it follow that they need less of our tax dollars ?

: In a display of grand arrogance Virginia Speaker of the House Eileen Filler-Corn had her comeuppance when a Judge fined her $500, and ordered her to pay $2,000 in the plaintiffs attorney fees. Hear the details of this case stemming from information that had been requested regarding the removal of Confederate Statues . Textbook example of how dangerous the permanent administrative state has become.

National : November 3rd is just around the corner . I have analyzed lots of data, some anecdotal, some historical in nature to lend some clarity to the Media narrative of what the Polls are suggesting. Let's examine all of it and see what makes sense.......and what doesn't !

Great Meeting Planned, hope to see you there ! Bob Shannon
