Radio Talk Show Host Jack Harris Visits Conservative Club Of East Pasco

970 WFLA’s Jack Harris talking with Gordon Hyde of the Conservative Club

The Conservative Club of East Pasco held its monthly meeting at Scotland Yards in Zephyrhills on Monday, October 18th. The large gathering was welcomed by President Joe Worrell. Guest speakers were former Supervisor of Elections Kurt Browning and 970 WFLA morning show host Jack Harris. The theme of both speakers was that this will probably be one of the most important elections of our lifetime. It is very important to read and understand the amendments. There is a lot of smoke and mirrors and not reading them carefully could cause voters to actually vote for something that they may really be against. In addition, Harris mentioned that the illegal count is now about 20 million and he would be against anyone supporting amnesty without these people going through the proper procedures to become US Citizens. To keep up to date with this important group you can check them out at www.conservativeclubeastpasco.org or on Facebook by putting in Conservative Club East Pasco.

Jordan Baker, 14 Year Old Founder of Conservative Christian Teens For America Kicks Off & Energizes the Conservative Club Of East Pasco

Jordan Baker President and Founder of CCTA

The monthly meeting of the Conservative Club of East Pasco was called to order at Scotland Yards at noon today, Monday, August 16, 2010. The club welcomed keynote speaker Jordan Baker, 14 year old Founder and President of the Conservative Christian Teens for America. Jordan fired up the crowd to take a stand and let everyone know the importance of today’s youth relative to the political realm. This group has made a significant impact on Washington already. A presentation and debate with Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite convinced the Congresswoman to review and later co-sponsor the bill on parental rights. How awesome for a group of teenagers to have Congress reconsider the proposed ammendment. As President Ronald Regan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”  I applaud the efforts of these teens and encourage each of you to take a stand.  For more information on Jordan’s organization go to www.cctaweb.webs.com
