The Strong Schools, Strong Communities National Movement

Posted by in Williamson Strong

We want to begin this post by thanking one of our readers who suggested we further research the Strong Schools, Strong Communities national movement. (For a number of reasons, we rarely respond to the emails we receive, but we appreciate people taking the time to share news tips and ideas for posts.) “It is not just Williamson County. It is everywhere,” this reader said. “Some items you may be interested in concern the progressive plan to turn red states blue by gaining control of smaller communities, school boards. . .They…read more

The Case against Williamson Strong

Posted by in Williamson Strong

As many of our readers know, MoveOn.org is one of the most radical, far-left political activist groups around. In early May, Matt Magallanes started a MoveOn.org petition titled, “Protect Moms and public schools from rigged TN Registry.” The petition asks Gov. Bill Haslam to “Stop the Tennessee State Registry Office from persecuting Williamson Strong public education supporters.”  Mr. Magallanes claims the Registry is “rigged” and “politically motivated”—without offering proof of either—and describes the situation as “tragically unfair.” The petition’s “NEW goal” seeks 200 signatures, but after more than 6 weeks…read more

Williamson Strong’s Obsession with Us Continues

Posted by in Williamson Strong

We want to start by welcoming the Tennessee Registry of Election Finance, and a whole lot of other new readers, to our blog. Imagine our surprise to read in today’s “Williamson” section of The Tennessean that an unnamed Williamson County resident (make that a Williamson Strong resident) has filed a complaint against us with the Registry alleging we’re an unregistered PAC. Golly, we can hardly believe that we made the newspaper, but there we are on page 4W. All that’s missing are our photos. This reminds us of The Muppet…read more

Update on Our Guest-Post Invitation to Williamson Strong’s Jim Cheney

Posted by in Williamson Strong

Jim Cheney, principal of Prufrock Communications and a co-founder/spokesman for Williamson Strong, replied to our invitation to write a guest post by saying that he would do so on one condition: that we reveal our identities. Mr. Cheney says he has always been completely transparent about his involvement with Williamson Strong, and he expects such transparency from us as well. “If you want credibility, then you have to be accountable,” is how he put it. “So, to that end, if you are willing to address the public without the curtain,…read more

Posted by in Williamson Strong

We get some interesting mail, but this email in particular got our attention. It’s from none other than Jim Cheney, one of Williamson Strong’s co-founders, and it’s in response to our Dec. 12 post titled, “A Holiday Wish for Williamson Strong.” Mr. Cheney was gracious in his note to us, and we wanted to share his comments with our readers: Just wanted to let you know that I had a good chuckle reading your parody.

A Holiday Wish for Williamson Strong

Posted by in Uncategorized, Williamson Strong

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through Strong house, Not a creature was stirring, ‘cause their hopes had been doused. Winter Solstice stockings were hung, by the chimney with care, In hopes that the New Year, would humiliation them spare. “What a year’s it’s been,” Jennifer said with a sigh, “At times things got so bad, I truly thought I would die.” From the bowels of the ship, Jen claimed Strong could be found, Now they’d sunk deeper, as the truth they kept bound. Sarah the lawyer, looking haggard…read more

WCS Board Member Bobby Hullett, Victim Extraordinaire, Decries “Perverted Political Agenda”

Posted by in Bobby Hullett, Williamson Strong

The fur continues to fly over WCS Board Member Bobby Hullett’s treatment of those with concerns about how Islam is being taught in our public schools, and in particular his suggestion that they “pack up and move.” Concurrently, he claims to have been “taken out of context to serve a perverted political agenda” while doubling down on his “move” comments, according to a Nov. 5 Williamson Herald article. Said Mr. Hullett: “You have heard me say this previously, I will say it again here…” Please don’t. As you pointed out,…read more

Registry: “Intentional Spoilage of Evidence” by Williamson Strong

Posted by in Williamson Strong

We intended to focus on other issues affecting Williamson County in our next several posts, but the train wreck known as Williamson Strong has become about as hard to ignore as Bruce Jenner’s transformation into Caitlyn before our eyes. After getting caught with their hands in the proverbial cookie jar, the Fab Five (Jennifer Smith, Jim Cheney, Susan Drury, Sarah Barnard and Kim Henke) have announced plans to appeal the $5,000 in civil penalties assessed by the Tennessee Registry of Election Finance against Williamson Strong for multiple violations of state…read more

Williamson Strong: Guilty As Charged

Posted by in Williamson Strong

We can’t get Don Meredith singing “Turn out the lights, the party’s over” out of our heads. His off-key rendition of a line from one of Willie Nelson’s songs on Monday Night Football is hard to forget once you’ve heard it. It signaled the time had come to turn off the tube and head to bed, because the game was definitely over. Only in this case it’s not the party or game that’s over, but the façade that Williamson Strong is an informal, “neutral” group of parents without any money and…read more
