KING WILLIAM T.E.A. PARTY
The Next King William T.E.A. Party Meetings:
6:30 TO 7:30 pm Thursday Mar 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.


****************************************************************************************************
* King William T.E.A. Party's Meetings & More

Happy 2020 as we work together to make things better at local, state and national levels.

You are cordially invited to experience the “New and Improved” King William T.E.A. Party. Our meetings will be fast-paced and won’t last more than one hour. Get in, get it done, get home!

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.

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

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
