History Now and Then


In Houston on January 18th, the Crispus Attucks Teaparty met at “This Is It” a soul food restaurant, at 2712 Blodgett. The tea party chose their name in honor of Crispus Attucks, a black, who was the first person killed in the Revolutionary War.

Co-founder Anita Moncrief, a fascinating speaker, is another brave black who stood up, while working for Acorn, and reported the corruption and misuse of money that was suppose to help the poor. Referring to the Crispus Attucks Tea party, she says, “It’s not about Democrats or Republicans. It is about the black community. The minority vote has been misused and manipulated by people for so long The Attucks Tea party mission statement is, “To build a strong base of conservative Black entrepreneurs, elected officials and constituents that provide Black conservatives a viable way to express and implement their conservative values politically.”

According to co-founder E. L. Johnson, the residents of black neighborhoods are largely conservative, despite the liberal, government-program propaganda being pumped in. Residents like Marie Johnson, a long time Democrat, who is fed up with the direction of the country, is typical of those who turned out.

Another speaker at the first meeting was State Representative, James Earl White. He was the first black to win his seat in a majority white area. Race is no longer more important than character and what a person believes.

The Crispus Attucks Tea party is the first one in the nation started by blacks. While founded by blacks in a black neighborhood, the tea party welcomes all regardless of race. Next meeting is Feb. 2nd.The email is: info@CrispusAttucks.com


U. S. Representative for 22nd District is Pete Olson.

Olson’s first two year term began in 2009. He was reelected and is now on the Transportation & Infrastructure, Science, Space & Aeronautics, and Homeland Security Committees. Back in 2009, he co-sponsored HR 381 to cut the budget 5% across the board in discretionary spending.

One of the best ways to find out about a representative is to see who supports them and who is against them. On the Internet the thatsmycongress web site says Olson’s Progressive rating is 0%. His stance that life begins at conception, belief that marriage should be between one man and one woman, his votes concerning global warming, and voting as a life time member of NRA all contributed to his 0% score on that web site.

To his many supporters, Progressive views rate 0%. Olson raised $1,262,929 and spent $1,226,911 as of Nov. 22, 2010. The top 5 industry contributors were Oil & gas, Air transport, Health professionals, Retired, and Real Estate.

Olson was born in 1962, graduated from Rice and passed the bar in 1988 after studying law at U. of T. He spent the next nine years as a Naval Aviator and became a Naval Liaison Officer to the U. S. Senate. In 1998, he was an aide to Phil Gramm and then Chief of Staff for John Cornyn. He, his wife, and two children are members of the Methodist church and live in Sugarland. He recently co-sponsored a bill to increase child tax credit and to make IRA withdrawals penalty and tax free.
