McKinney – The Face of Government Creep

Posted by |

One of the biggest lies elected officials believe is that their number one job is to represent their constituents, whomever they believe those constituents to be. This is a fallacy. The most overly represented crowd these days are the “easily triggered”. Enter the City of McKinney and it’s city council.

In October of 2017 the city passed an ordinance banning electioneering in the city except in their “Designated Area for Electioneering”. Electioneering is the simple act of talking to someone about the upcoming or current election. The council said they had to pass this ordinance in order to allow people to go vote without having to engage campaigns on their way in. The mayor actually stated he believes people have this right – although he never sourced where that right came from. The right to seek political redress of our government is a fundamentally ‘all American’ value, but McKinney city council members believe it is their job to respond to the easily triggered over protecting the right to engage in political speech.

Bring Back the “Independent” in Grapevine Colleyville INDEPENDENT School District

An Open Letter to Those Who Supported Me in Last Year’s GCISD School Board Election.

When I ran for GCISD school board one year ago, I witnessed a groundswell of stakeholders dissatisfied with changes in the district.

Halfway through LEAD 2021, with 3 students who experienced TAAS, TAKs and STAAR, who spent the last 6 years of their GCISD careers under the guise of “Personalized Learning,” I found nothing could be further from the truth.  The “personal” in LEAD 2021 is adaptive technology, not human guidance.  My youngest, who was exposed to LEAD 2021 in her more formidable years, did not have the academic legacy of my oldest.  Many know our family history and I will not discuss it here, but the district did not teach my girls to read. As a parent, I accepted responsibility and made sure they had appropriate reading instruction.  After that, I stood before the GCISD board (which is very different than today’s board) and with a group of other parents, made the board aware that GCISD is responsible for providing appropriate reading instruction for ALL students, not just the easy ones.  Today that is truer than ever in all subjects.  Every child in GCISD needs to learn to read well, write well, solve math efficiently and effectively, learn history and learn proven science laws and principles.  The district vision, created by the board, should include definitive measures of academic proficiency.  SAT and ACT are the only national measures of college readiness the majority of students in GCISD will take.  Despite great GCISD expense in test preparation and LEAD 2021 vision, the scores on these 2 nationalized tests are statistically flat.  What are GCISD tax payers getting for the investment in redefined education?

Post Primaries…Now What?

Posted by |

With the Primaries in the rear view mirror, Direct Action Texas’ work has kicked into high gear. As Texas’ only organization with proven results in finding election fraud, our phones and email have been busy with tips and information about election discrepancies and nefarious activity.

It might surprise you to learn a good number of the leads we’ve received have come from two state agencies. These two agencies have gotten information and/or seen evidence they believe points to election fraud. To whom do they turn to handle such serious allegations? Direct Action Texas. We are the only ones these agencies can rely on to actually investigate and file formal complaints. One of the biggest misconceptions the public has regarding elections is believing that there is some government agency which ensures they’re conducted fairly.

There simply is no one with that job. The state has turned to us for help. We’re honored and happy to oblige.

The sheer number of tips we received forces us to work through them quickly and prioritize those where fraud is verifiable and prosecution is possible. Currently we are looking at primaries in just over 30 counties. Here are two examples of types of investigations we’re pursuing:

  • Once again we found ourselves in East Texas, this time in Gregg County, where mail-in ballots appear to have been compromised. We’ve found major red flags in the Commissioner Precinct 4 race, findings law enforcement is going to be extremely interested in learning about. We will be making our criminal complaint public in the coming weeks.
  • Last week we published a video of a harvester working a nursing home in Harris County. If you have not watched that video, you need to see what harvesting in action looks like – SEE IT HERE. State Rep. Harold Dutton is already out denying the video…oddly enough before anyone publicly blamed him.  DAT has more videos and is investigating this case as well, stay tuned for updates soon.

From the Texas Panhandle to the border, we have counties with voting irregularities, each distinct in nature. Digging into these elections is long and tedious as there’s significant delay in simply getting the information from each county. After the election, by statute, it can take up to 30 days for counties to provide certain election information. We can not begin analyzing the results until we have received all the information. With over 30 counties we are tracking, just getting the election data in-house is chore. Then the real work on sifting through the begins.

We expect to have as many as a half a dozen criminal complaints from this primary. It could be more, depending on what we find. Mail-in ballot fraud is a real, as is vote harvesting, both of which are wide-spread problems in Texas. One would think the legislature would allocate the resources necessary to  ensure the integrity of our elections.

Until they do, you’ll find DAT digging through the evidence. Stay tuned for updates.

 

Election Fraud – See the Video!

Posted by |

The media and others will tell you constantly, “There is no election fraud”. However to anyone paying attention, it is more like a headline a day of voter fraud investigations.

Today we learned from an article in the Dallas Morning News that the Dallas District Attorney is investigating 1,200 applications for ballot by mail for this month’s primary, but the applications, in many cases, were filled out last year. This is the same area where there is an ongoing criminal investigation into vote harvesting.

Now comes this: Direct Action Texas received a video of a worker harvesting a ballot for Harold Dutton in last week’s Democrat primary. The video (below) shows a worker approaching a voter with that voter’s ballot in hand. The worker appears to have a stack of ballots in her hand. She clearly identifies herself with the Harold Dutton campaign, and proceeds to instruct the voter to check the box for Dutton and sign, and then she leaves with the ballot.

Gerald Haddock Pops Up – But Who Is He?

Posted by |

The biggest myth in politics is that donors give money to candidates in order to “buy” their vote. The fact is conservative donors give money to conservative candidates because they are already conservative and like-minded. The same happens on the left. Annie’s List gives money to liberal candidates because they are already liberal, not to buy their vote.

Every now and then, however, someone comes along, breaks that mold, and spreads money around in order to purchase influence, or worse, expecting a quid pro quo. This year a certain Gerald Haddock has appeared on the scene… and where ever he shows up things get shady and bizarre quickly. Read More
