CPR has their first formal meeting in Houston this past Monday, February 25th, since the revival of the concept first hatched by Brandon Darby, Andrew Breitbart, and Katherine Engelbrecht.
The meeting was opened by Brandon, with the group's tradition of the Pledge of Allegiance followed by the Texas Pledge and then a short prayer. Brandon started with a brief description of what CPR was about along with some of the short term goals for the members to think about and focus on. Some of these goals are to promote a cultural change from dependency to self-sufficiency via local programs, run locally to directly assist those in need to help them, help themselves, in improving their lives. This people helping people concept will include for just one item, disaster help dispatched locally to aid disaster victims more efficiently that government agencies can. Brandon’s general premise was that people locally can be more efficient and effective than government agencies are without the bureaucratic red tape and misappropriations of funds that large organizations tend to suffer from. Mr. Darby made sure he gave credit to all the contributing members of CPR and also announced that Anita Moncrief had joined CPR full time.
Brandon ended his opening explanation of CPR’s resurrection efforts by intruding a popular speaker at the King Street Patriots meetings, Anita Moncrief. Anita’s unique perspective allows her an interesting and compelling insight on how a person can evolve from a liberal philosophy into a strong conservative belief. Anita’s experiences captivates the audience while in an entertaining manner she conveys her message on the need for American’s to unite as American’s without any of the typical stereotypes of race, creed, or any other barrier to an individuals bettering their own lives.
The stage was then briefly taken by the Dottie Laster whose life’s work is helping exploited people in the human trafficking industry. Human trafficking is a subject that doesn’t get its due exposure through Main Stream Media outlets for whatever reason. Dottie and Brandon are the public voices of the victims of this understated blithe in our society here in America.
The meeting was ended with a question and answer session in which Brandon listened intently to the questions and responded to each, which occupied his time well beyond the end of the meeting. This meeting was the first monthly meeting to held here in Houston at the faculties of the King Street Patriots and True the Vote and the country will hear many good things coming out of CPR in the coming years.
