Republican Precinct Committeeman: The Power of the Office

Precinct Committeeman

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.

In the article, the “Seven Steps of government” are listed:

  1. To change things, you have to change the law.
  2. To change the laws, you have to change the people who make them.

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.

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.

In many quarters this anger has turned into rage. This discontent with the Republican Party is not new. Countless people have already left the party, many a decade or more ago. It is clear that the level of frustration is growing, and more than ever we hear talk about the heightened civil war within the GOP, as well as the possibility that the Republican Party would cease to exist as a viable political entity.… Continue Reading

Bobby Jindal Has the Most Amazing Response When Planned Parenthood Shows Up at His House

Written by Ray Nothstine

By setting up a streaming loop of the now infamous undercover abortion videos outside the governor’s residence, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal challenged pro-Planned Parenthood protestors in an innovative way.

A half a dozen pro-Planned Parenthood protestors, many adorned in pink, showed up at the governor’s residence to decry Jindal’s actions to strip the popular abortion provider of state Medicaid funding in August. The protestors held pink and blue Planned Parenthood placards that read “Don’t take away my care,” and “I stand with Planned Parenthood.”

On Twitter, Jindal, who is running for Republican nomination for president, said Friday that “Protesters stayed far away from the Planned Parenthood videos we had playing on my lawn.”

His presidential campaign released a video depicting the incident.… Continue Reading

What GOP Candidates Said About Supreme Court’s Gay Marriage Ruling

GOP CandidatesSantorum, Huckabee, Cruz, Jindal make the A Team

 

Written by Maggie Gallagher
On June 26, a narrow majority of U.S. Supreme Court justices struck down the traditional definition of marriage, ruling all 50 states must recognize same-sex unions as marriages.

The four dissenters included the usually mild-mannered Chief Justice John Roberts, who called the majority opinion “dangerous to the rule of law”: “The majority’s decision is an act of will, not legal judgment. The right it announces has no basis in the Constitution or this Court’s precedent.”

Chief Justice Roberts also underscored the “serious questions about religious liberty” the decision raises: “Indeed, the Solicitor General candidly acknowledged that the tax exemptions of some religious institutions would be in question if they opposed same-sex marriage. . .there is little doubt these and similar questions will soon be before this Court.… Continue Reading

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

Washington quote

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

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. The town is beseeched, and the trumpet call us to the breach, and we talk and, be Chrish [by Christ], do nothing, ’tis shame for us all.

Clearly, human nature hasn’t changed in the last four centuries.… Continue Reading

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

Written by John Biver

Years before the rise of the Tea Party protest movement in early 2009 one of the more common conversations among conservatives at political events involved the questions, “What can be done?” “What’s the plan?” “What can I do?” The fact is, there hasn’t been much guidance available.

Before I answer the question “what can I do?”, take a few minutes and read Fay Voshell’s recent article over at American Thinker, “The Little Hand.” If Voshell’s powerful writing doesn’t move you to action, nothing I’ll be saying in these next few articles will do the trick.

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.

Ted Cruz Tells Evangelicals to ‘Stand Up and Vote Our Biblical Values’

Cruz

Written by Ray Nothstine

In a swing through Tupelo, Mississippi, last week, Texas Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz dropped by the American Family Association radio station for an interview and called on people of faith to “stand up and vote our biblical values.

“In this last election 54 million Evangelicals stayed home,” asserted Cruz on Tuesday. “If we can simply bring Christians to the polls, is it any wonder that we have the government we have, we have the leaders we have, if believers stay home and leave electing our leaders to unbelievers? We get exactly what we deserve.

“Nothing is more important than having people of faith stand up and vote our biblical values,” added Cruz.

Cruz believes that there are 90 million Evangelical Christian voters in America and that many of them are not even registered to vote or disengaged from the political process.… Continue Reading

George Will and the GOP Divide

???????????

Written by Jeffrey Lord

In every town large enough to house a college there is a faculty lounge at the back of which sits the local George Will, nursing his ever-present pipe and innumerable elitist delusions.

Because the actual George Will is a syndicated columnist, he can turn himself into an unprecedentedly and incorrigibly sniffy public preacher. It is his right to use his considerable intelligence as he pleases. His supercilious performance and its haughty disdain of civic life are costs of freedom that an open society must be prepared to pay.

Ouch.

Truman was not called “Give ‘em hell Harry” for nothing.

Actually, I really like George Will and have defended him in his recent bout with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the paper canceling Will’s syndicated column in a fit of political correctness.
