Are we ready for the end run? I'd expect the President would pass some sort of Legislative Action on Immigration before Congress is back in session thru Executive fiat . Though Amnesty for Illegal's is widely opposed by the people of this Country the president has been slowly nipping away to get what he wants bit by bit. This slow transformation goes largely unnoticed. We just took in a few hundred thousand teens under the guise of "oh those poor kids." Now, what's next on the horizon?
Recent media reporting of inaccurate information regarding the Lehigh Valley Tea Party (LVTP) may have confused some of you regarding a rally we did not plan or participate in this past Sunday, July 27, 2014.
We make any and all public announcements about LVTP rallies and events directly to you, our members, via email, our website, the Freedom Network, a robo call, and directly to our contacts in the real media.
We do not send press releases to bloggers, independent writers, or self-proclaimed 'reporters'. We do not post events on any other group's facebook or website pages.
We have not united with any other group by any other name.
If you see or hear anything about the LVTP that you have not received in your email or read directly from our website or facebook pages, it most likely is untrue.
Your elected board members can be reached via email, and I can also be reached personally by phone almost always. Please make note of the names and email addresses below for reference.
Thank you for your attention to this matter and I look forward to seeing you all at the August "First Friday Event!".
Vice Chairman, LVTP
Common Core Standards - Separating Truth from Fiction
Commercials on radio and TV make it clear, and hard to argue, that the Common Core mandate is clearly best for all children. Even the national PTA has endorsed Common Core.
If that's the case - why is there so much controversy? Why do opponents claim it is counterproductive to achieving a quality and a higher level of education for all children? Truly, why would anyone fear or fight an opportunity to achieve better and higher standards for all children?
According to Peg Luksik, a 35 year educator & trainer, author, and former US Dept of education employee tasked to review and evaluate education reform initiatives, the answer is found in the actual documents of the Common Core initiative along with the supporting memos, current legislation and definitive actions, by the US Department of Education and the PA Department of Education.
On July 11th, see and hear exactly how the Common Core initiative will impact local education based on the documents and actions of the US Department of Education and the State of PA. Luksik will guide the audience through the mandated regulations and documents as published.
Ask questions. You decide - do these standards benefit ALL the students?

Keep your mouths shut about illegal immigrants or face arrest.
A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.
