Focus on the Candidates

Posted by on Mar 10, 2018 in Announcements, Words from the Chairman | 0 comments

Because we’re in the midst of an election cycle, the SCTP hasn’t directly addressed issues as much as we would like. Instead, we’re focusing on candidates who will have a direct impact on our liberties ( i.e. issues). What a candidate has done in the past is a barometer of how that candidate will legislate in the future. In short, actions speak louder than words.

As for an issue that is still pressing, you’ll recall that Dr. Bill Warner addressed the membership in the past regarding Islam, and its  continuing encroachment in TN.  After years of study, Dr. Warner became an expert on Islam, its violent and oppressive history, and the continuing effort to implement Sharia Law in the U.S. In fact, the surge of mosques being built in major metropolises across our land are not so much a symbol of worship, but are more a visible sign of the Muslim’s intent to make America a nation ruled by Islam.

Sharia Law — which is actually a political agenda disguised as a religion — is in direct conflict with our Constitution and our American values. Yet, governments and private companies are kowtowing to the demands of Islamists. I could write you an extensive list of  private companies that are submitting to the intimidation and threats posed by Muslims if they don’t comply with the demands of Islam. In effect, Muslims are implementing Sharia Law by stealth through intimidation.

Governments are also bowing to the demands of Islam in various ways, including the forced indoctrination of our youth through Common Core social studies. Quite frankly, I will never understand why supposed conservatives within the ranks of the republican party are so blind to the Muslim agenda. As is pointed out in the following article published Friday morning, March 9th, Muslims will lie right to your face, and misuse statistics to gain sympathy from whomever they can, but especially uninformed politicians, in order to further erode our traditional values.

Rest assured that the SCTP will address this issue again once the elections are over. But in the meantime, we urge all of you to remember that the enemies of the United States will never rest. Neither will we.

In Liberty,

Meet the Candidates

Posted by on Mar 5, 2018 in Announcements, Words from the Chairman | 0 comments

The Sevier County Tea Party is happy to host two candidates for two seats at their March 15th meeting.

Amy Williams, a lifelong resident of Sevier County, is running for County Commission District 3 seat A. She is seeking to represent more than 8,000 county residents, and will have a direct impact on your taxes, zoning, and other relevant county business.
Our other guest will be Scott Williams who is seeking to be your next state senator. As a relative unknown, Scott ran for the seat two years ago as a staunch conservative against the incumbent Doug Overbey, garnering over 40% of the vote. He is now running to fill the last remaining years of Overbey’s seat, now that Overbey has been appointed East TN U.S. Attorney.
Please join us on the third floor of the Sevier County Courthouse starting at 6:30 p.m. to hear both candidates who, if they win, will have a direct impact on your lives and liberty.
“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor”.

Governors Race

Posted by on Mar 3, 2018 in Words from the Chairman | 0 comments


The race for governor is on, and there are several candidates competing for that title. The winner of the race will set the state’s agenda for the next four years, so it’s important for you to know who the candidates are in order to make an informed decision at the ballot box.

We will be hosting our first candidate guest, Kay White, Thursday, Nov. 16th. Being a Christian conservative, she’s been involved in grass roots politics for a number of years. Kay and her husband are the founders of the Tri-cities tea party. In 2016, Kay took on the role of state director for Senator Santorum’s presidential campaign. More recently, she was the national director of Stand For Principles PAC for Senator Cruz’s 2016 campaign before stepping down to be the E. TN director for the Trump campaign.

Another important item on the agenda is voting for a name change of our organization. The proposed name changes are Tennessee Patriots ( or Volunteers), Sevier County Patriots (or Volunteers), Vanguards of Sevier County, or no name change at all, keeping our current name Sevier County Tea Party. This is your organization, so it’s important that you consider these proposals and cast your vote at out meeting.

Please join us Thursday, November 16th at the Sevier County Courthouse starting at 6:30 to hear Kay’s platform and cast your vote. It’s a meeting you won’t want to miss. And bring a friend ! They’ll be voting, too.

In Liberty,

Steve Osborn
