Republican Precinct Committeeman: The Power of the Office

This is the fifth article in a series about running for the political office
of Republican Precinct Committeeman.

Written by John Biver

Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum website has a post titled, “The Most Powerful Office In The World Is NOT The President of the United States!

Hyperbole? You read it and decide. No one is arguing that ONE INDIVIDUAL precinct committeeman has more power than the president. But put together hundreds and thousands and tens of thousands of precinct committeemen, and every politician from the White House on down will know that they will be held accountable.… Continue Reading

Running for GOP Precinct Committeeman: What You Need to Know

Editor’s Note:  Through this series of articles we hope and pray that conservative Christian voters will consider running for the office of precinct committeemen. In doing so, you will directly and positively influence pro-family issues and political leadership within the Illinois GOP.  We are not aligning with the GOP establishment, which has been woefully inept and cowardly.

I hope that by now you’ve decided to run for precinct committeeman and to get all your conservatives friends from church and work to do the same.… Continue Reading

Precinct Committeemen and The Unavoidable Work of a Political Party

This is the third article in a series about running for the political office
of Republican Precinct Committeeman.
 (Read part 1 HERE, and part 2 HERE)

Written by John Biver

Among conservatives there is a great deal of anger with the current Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., and in many state capitals. A lot is being written on this topic by commentators this summer because of the popularity of “outsider” candidates running for the GOP presidential nomination.… Continue Reading

What a Precinct Committeeman Is, And Why Conservatives Need to Run for the Office

This is the second article in a series about running for the political office
of Republican Precinct Committeeman.
 (Read part 1 HERE.)

Written by John Biver

In our first post we quoted from Fay Voshell’s recent article, “The Little Hand,” words that should stir everyone on the political right into action. Voshell’s post is political writing at its best, and in my view — it is political writing as art. Speaking of art, here are a couple of lines spoken to idle troops during a battle in Shakespeare’s Henry V:

It is no time to discourse.

We Must Help Tim Ozinga Get On The Ballot!

When a man with solid integrity and family values has decided to run for an Illinois House seat, our people need to be made aware, lend a hand to help him get on the ballot, and then help him to the finish line.

If you’re not familiar with Tim Ozinga, let me introduce you.

Tim is Christian husband and father of four daughters who understands the battle quite well. He is a co-owner and executive vice president of the Mokena-based Ozinga Bros.

“What Can I Do?” You Can Run For Precinct Committeeman!

Written by John Biver

Years before the rise of the Tea Party movement some of the more common questions among conservatives at political events were, “What can be done?” “What’s the plan?” “What can I do?”

Before I answer those questions, take a few minutes and read Fay Voshell’s article over at American Thinker, “The Little Hand.” If Voshell’s powerful writing doesn’t move you to action, nothing will.

Here’s Voshell:

Sometimes in the life of our nation there comes a tipping point during which a horror of such great magnitude is revealed so clearly the response can only be universal revulsion and outrage.

Chicago: A Hellhole for Parole, Free Bail, and Jailbreak for Violent Gun Felons

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Why aren’t Republicans pounding the lectern with righteous indignation about violent gun felons being let off easy by the judicial system the same way Democrats engage in cerebral gyrations over guns? Democrats have sob stories for their gun control agenda. Republicans need to look no farther than Chicago as the poster child for criminal control.

On June 23, 2017, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson stood beside then-Gov. Bruce Rauner and celebrated the passage of a bill stiffening sentences on gun felons.… Continue Reading

We MUST Help Tom Morrison Get Re-Elected!

Written by Kathy Valente

When an elected leader who has proven himself over and over decides to go straight back into the lion’s den to fight on behalf of his constituents, they have an obligation to help him get to the finish line.

Tom Morrison was elected to the Illinois State House for the 54th District in 2011. But in 2018, his Left wing opponent and her allies spent over $2 million against him. The race was so close he won by only 43 votes!… Continue Reading

State Rep. David Welter Needs To Hear From You

Written by David E. Smith

State Representative David Welter (R-75th Dist.) is promoting some town hall meetings next week in Morris, Plano, Wilmington, and Seneca so that he can “listen to your feedback, your questions, and concerns.” We thought you, a conservative pro-family voter in this district, should know how your local state representative has been voting in Springfield.

For a number of important reasons, we believe your local official, Rep. Welter, has failed us. (See this flyer for more information.) You may want to attend one or more of these meetings to ask him about his shocking voting record and failed leadership.… Continue Reading
