Event Information

Public Meeting Oct. 15

Is Something Wrong With Our Schools?

Alex Newman co-author of “Crimes of the Educators:…” will be one of two featured speakers this Tuesday evening at the public meeting of Coastal Carolina Taxpayers Association.  The event will take place at Stanley Hall Ballroom in downtown New Bern.  Doors open at 6:30 and the program will begin at 7 PM.

According to Newman, Americans went from being the most educated people in the world to being an international embarrassment due to a socialist approach in reducing standards.  The idea claims Newman, is to lower standards for all so that “no student is left behind”.    

In “Crimes of the Educators” Newman reveals the beginning of America’s public school disaster and plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population.

In addition, Lynne Taylor will share her thoughts about shortcomings in North Carolina Public Schools.  Taylor served as a frequent guest on nationwide radio and has appeared several times before the NC General Assembly in efforts to preserve freedom in education.

The public is invited to participate in a question and answer period at the conclusion of the presentation by Taylor and Newman.

Alex Newman is a journalist, educator and author.  He has served as president of the small media and information consulting firm Liberty Sentinel Media, and writes for numerous publications in the US and abroad.

Lynne Taylor helped co-establish PIE NC (Preserving Integrity and Excellence in Education) circa 2012 and has been a vocal opponent of Common Core from the start.  She is a retired private (homeschool) teacher and regionally recognized as a support group leader for home school families.

There are two entrances to Stanly Hall.  For easy access there is an elevator entrance is located at 249 Craven Street.  The stairway entrance is located at 305 Pollock Street. Directly across the street from City Hall.

Coastal Carolina Taxpayers Association is a 501-C3 nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to lower taxes, smaller government, individual liberties and protection of the US Constitution and the free enterprise system.  Membership in CCTA is open to everyone.

Why we need the Electoral College!

The United States’ Founders created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES and ALL AMERICANS  are
FAIRLY represented.

Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the Nation?  Do they truly represent all states and our entire Nation?

There are 3,141 counties in the United States.

Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.

There are 62 counties in New York State.

Trump won 46 of them.

Clinton won 16.

Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.

In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan,
Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes
than Trump. (Clinton won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)

Therefore these 4 MEGA counties in New York City alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.

These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.

The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.

Should a Nation that encompasses almost 4 million square miles, 

be ruled by those who live in one small corner of the vast nation–a mere 319 square miles?

Should this small section of the country dictate a National Election?

Should large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA)  speak for the entire Nation?

NC Seafood

Is a Human Health Crisis Looming over NC?

Or is it Already Here?

While CCTA has been reporting on and investigating the NC House proceedings on  HB-483, the “Let Them Spawn” bill, a much bigger and more urgent issue with our seafood has come to our attention. This is not a political issue or a battle between two interest on the same issue, it is definately a Human Health issue with plenty of supporting data. We hope to draw attention to this issue and inform the public of it’s severity and hope that our legislators see the impact the passage of HB-483 could have on the health of our citizens by limiting their choices to healthy local seafood. I think it’s time to put the brakes on and say Whoa, lets look at all the issues not just the ones special interest are pushing and spending big bucks on.

First let me share some background on HB-483 provided by Jerry Schill ( Jerry Schill is the Executive Director of the North Carolina Fisheries Association ) Click the link below.
