KING WILLIAM T.E.A. PARTY
The Next King William T.E.A. Party Meetings:
Jan 28, 2021

In view of the many controversies surrounding the county’s 2020 & 2021 budget 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
"2021 - 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.

Fighting the Good Fight: What I Learned at the Rally
By Jeff Minick - January 11, 2021 Updated: January 11, 2021

Here’s what I witnessed in Washington on Jan. 6 at the Save America March.

Surrounding me were patriotic Americans who had traveled from all parts of our land to protest what they believed was a fraudulent election. My daughter’s friend had secured VIP seating for our party, but few people sat during the event. Instead, many of them danced, tapped their feet, or sang to the music from the loudspeakers. Others chatted and laughed with friends, stood on the chairs to snap pictures of the enormous crowd, and enthusiastically applauded the speakers.

Remove Division Superintendent Dr. David White from King William County Public Schools!

In recent events, King William County Public Schools division superintendent, Dr. David White, has shown his agenda to shove the Black Lives Matter mentality down the throats of our community. With a letter to our parents of King William County students, a resolution highlighting one race over another, and an under the table set up of a rally supporting those that burn our flags, kneel to the Pledge of Allegiance, and burn down cities and towns creating hate. With all of that said we need to ban together as a community to let Dr. David White know that we will not be divided. We will not tolerate such to go on in our community involving our schools, thus creating division amongst our students, our families and our staff!

Below is a link & comment to a song reference by a supporter of the petition.

This song was recently shared/taught in our high school. It was brought to the attention of the principal AND the superintendent, with seemingly no concern. It’s definitely a politically charged/motivated song.

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.

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.

It Appears We Have A Militia in King William

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.”

For more information on volunteering, email KW1stbattalion@gmail.com

DISCLAIMER: In the interests of hearing from a wide variety of individuals and groups , King William T.E.A. Party (Taxed Enough Already) takes no position on those invited to present information. See www.kwteaparty.com and Facebook . Email the Secretary at RBRUCEPIX@aol.com if you would like to be considered for a speaking slot at one of our regular meetings.

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 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.
