Conservative Bowie County Clerk faces Jail for defending the Pledge of Allegiance

How does a Conservative County Clerk in Texarkana, Bowie County/East Texas end up facing jail, fines, and loss of job for defending respectively and adding the “Pledge of Allegiance” as minutes to the County meeting?

“I shall never surrender nor retreat.
Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism, & of everything
dear to the American character, to come to our aid with all dispatch.”

(Excerpt from the Alamo Letter, William B. Travis,
Commandancy of the Alamo/Bexar, Fby. 24th 1836)

What wonderful words to read. Every time I visit the Alamo and read those words I get Goosebumps.

For 235 years the principles of “patriotism”, “Liberty”, “Justice” and everything dear to the American Character have been the backbone and fundamental spirit of this nation.

Men and Women in the U.S. Armed forces have sacrificed everything from family life to their greatest sacrifice, their lives to defend those principles. 185 men died at the Alamo defending the same.

But those times are apparently over.

Texarkana, Bowie County, East Texas – For 12 years the world in East Texas was, according to Judge Sterling Lacy, who identifies himself on his facebook page, a good conservative.

The county clerk was always a Democrat, so Judge Lacy, a spineless RINO, who admits he never added the “Pledge of Allegiance” and invocation to the minutes out of fear he could be “sued by organizations such as the ACLU” had nothing to worry about.

What a wonderful thought to know that our Judges have to be scared to be patriots and honor our fallen Heros because a radical left wing organization financed by Tax Dollars could use OUR tax contribution and sue them.

Isn’t America a wonderful country? What do we need foreign enemies for? We have the social terrorist in our own country and we even finance them with tax Dollars.

But in 2010 times changed in Bowie County; Natalie Nichols, a wonderful mother, wife, and fiscal conservative fought a successful election exactly on those patriot, constitutional, fiscal conservative principles and conquered the County Clerk’s office.

With enthusiasm she started her new calling serving the people of Bowie County, never leaving her patriotic principles out of sight. And as records show she always added the Pledge as well as the invocation.

However, on June 13, 2011 Judge Lacy decided, together with Precinct 4 commissioner Pat McCoy (another spineless RINO Conservative) to remove the Pledge from the minutes. Interestingly, is that they waited for this exact day on purpose.

On June 13, 2011County Clerk Nichols was in Dallas, Texas for training and could not attend the meeting.

On June 23, 2011when returning from training Nichols faced the Judge in the next court meeting where she said: “Over the years, many brave men and women have paid the ultimate sacrifice with their blood and their lives to protect this great nation that includes our most sacred flag. I will not dishonor their service or sacrifice. We shouldn’t be fighting to hide our allegiance to the flag; we should be fighting to proclaim it!”

On a County Commissioner Court meeting on July 11, 2011 things got out of hand when Lacy addressed the members of the court about the removal of the Pledge and Prayer from court documents claiming that the minutes were left out “the opening ceremony of devotional Prayer, and Pledge”.

Natalie Nichols immediately replied “that’s not true….the pledge and prayer are certainly there”. Judge Lacy immediately tried to silence here causing Nichols to exasperate “but you are lying.”

Nichols later on apologized for her outburst in court, but still stands to the principles. N.

Nichols also thanks the only lone member of the court who voted against the action saying “we all need to say a huge thank you to
Commissioner Addington for standing up for both God and Country and voting against it”.

Nevertheless, the county judge launched an investigation with Bowie County Sheriff James Prince against Nichols.

They never questioned her or gave her any chance to justify herself, 2 days after the investigation was launched sheriff Prince already turned the case over to the ADA.

Natalie Nichols became aware of the investigation against her through Texarkana Gazette. They did not even have the balls to tell her themselves.

Read the full story and watch the videos here.

Chet Nichols, Natalie’s husband told me on July 18, 2011that they are trying to wrap things up and address the Grand Jury onJuly 28, 2011.

Nichols, who by sec. 81.003 of Texas law, has the authority to record, amend, attest, and seal the minutes with the official county seal, says “they can sue me, remove me from office, but I will not remove the Pledge of Allegiance or the Prayer from the official recording of this court, when the action did in fact take place.”

And this is what you can do to help her and avoid injustice

  3. Great, great blog! I have shared your site and your blog on my facebook page. People need to know about this and have another resource for important information that effects our country. Thanks for the dedication!

  4. Get rid of the judge, but Mrs Nickols in his place. He is a disgrace to all af our military. An the lawyers who filing this case should leave AMERICA.

  5. This article is wrong, miss-guided, miss-leading and obviously unrersearched. Here are a few facts about County Judge Sterling Lacy. He is an ordained minister and certified Christina counseler. He is a pius, devout Christian and a very wise man of God. He rose to national prominence after writing a book called Valley of Decision: A Christian Primer for the Political Arena, that offers biblical guidence on how Christians should conduct themselves in civic life. He also funded the production of “Not Yours To Give” an audio re-enactment of Davy Crockett’s famous speech before congress regarding the limited use of public funds. Judge Lacy is the first Republican to hold the County Judge office in Bowie County. He won the election in spite of the fact that the Republican party backed the Democrat who had been in office for over 25 years. He has brought openness to the commissioners court meetings and county proceedings. I haven’t spoken with him since this story exploded but I trust his wisdom and trust that his decisions are made after much prayer and seeking guidence from above. I can tell this auther never bothered to even pick up the phone and speak with Dr. Lacy and all of these posters never took the time to find out who is is and what he actually represents.

  6. this is irrefutable proof that ILLEGAL INVADERS are destroying our govt and our people by INTIMIDATION. JUDGE ADMITS HE DIDN’T INCLUDE IT BECAUSE HE WAS AFRAID OF LAWSUIT. HE SHOULD BE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY. Thand God for Natalie Nichols… a true patriot. AND FOR THIS SHE WAS FIRED???? (MIGHT KNOW THIS WAS IN TEXAS)

  7. God bless you for posting this item. I’m from New Jersey, a state ridden with Democrats and RINOs and this story has made me very angry.

    I will contact all those individuals you noted expressing my support for Ms. Nichols. She is a Great American.

    I am happy I discovered your Blog.

    1. I hope to get all the updates within the next 2 days thanks for your support

  9. You have some good thoughts! Maybe I ought to consider about attempting this myself.

  10. Hello there, I discovered your web page using Google while searching for a related subject, your web page came up, it looks great. I’ve book-marked it in my search engines bookmarks.

  11. Check out my album I put along with my music production with J-Stalin, AP-9, Sweet Geez, City Side Crew and many more rappers from the bay area.

  12. The United States is really composed of a bunch of little countries. It is really cool to see how there are different rules in each state and how each of them keep order. I am surprised that there isn’t more arguing between states but I think someday there will be. There is too much pride in each one for horrible things not to happen some day. It might not be a bad idea to just have one law for all states instead of them being able to create their own. Thoughts?

  13. What’s Happening i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I’ve found It absolutely useful and it has aided me out loads. I hope to contribute & help other users like its aided me. Good job.

  14. Well I really liked studying it. This post provided by you is very helpful for proper planning.

  15. Nice and informative.Thanks for sharing.

  16. Everyone complains about the Government doing nothing, but in reality it’s us doing nothing. If the cizitens of this country would make a stand and make a demand for what is right then things would finally change. It’s tiring hearing about what’s incorrect with our land without action. Stand up for what you believe in.

    […]I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, “I’m going to mop the floor with your face.” I said, “You’ll be sorry.” He said, “Oh, yeah? Why?” I said, “Well, you won’t be able to get into the corners very well.”[…]…

Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  29. I’m hoping the same very best perform from you in the long run also. In fact your inventive writing skills has inspired me to begin my own BlogEngine blog now.

  30. Aw, this was a really great post. In theory I’d like to write like this also – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.

  31. I found your weblog site on google and verify a couple of of your early posts. Continue to maintain up the superb operate. I just extra up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. Seeking forward to reading more from you afterward!…

  32. This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.

  33. I always favour to go for Insurance policy of worthful asserts. Our home, vehicle and other valuable asserts must be insured so that if anything goes wrong then, we need not to be suffered. I have already insured my all asserts and every one must have to go for this.

  34. What youre saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I also love the images you put in here. They fit so well with what youre trying to say. Im sure youll reach so many people with what youve got to say.

  50. great helpful material in my paper thanks:)

  51. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours these days, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet will be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  52. The ones that need to be fired are the ones who wrote this article. They did not get the right story. This story has lies all the way through it. You should call a real patriot and statesman Sterling Lacey. instead of listening to known liers.

    1. I did get the story first hand, from my dear friend. There is always two sides of the story. Thanks for your insight

  53. I was skeptical and slightly disappointed when I read of this occurrence. I just heard Rt. Rev. Dr. Judge Sterling Lacey speak on Saturday about very conservative principles rooted in the Word of God to a very conservative crowd. Please afford both parties objectivity without slander as is prescribed in the Bible. I hope the matter gets resolved in a good way.

  54. I do not even know the way I stopped up
    right here, however I believed this submit used to be good.
    I don’t realize who you’re but certainly you are going to a well-known blogger in
    the event you aren’t already. Cheers
