RPDC: Violence Begets Violence

For immediate release:
August 27th, 2020

The failure of Democrat leadership, local and statewide, has resulted in more senseless deaths due to rioting in Wisconsin.  For months, we have seen law enforcement ordered to step down by these Democrat “leaders” while violence continues to escalate and spin out of control. At least three people are now dead who should not be. 

There is a mobile army of Democrat radicals, linked together by social media, who are willing to travel by the hundreds on a moment’s notice.  They live in Minneapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee, and elsewhere - armed with fireworks, rocks, headgear, specialized tactics, and with a plan for specific destruction.  Rioters give a lot of reasons why they do what they do but, at the end of the day, violence is never the answer.

Open Letter to Governor Evers / Re-Open Wisconsin!

Dear Governor Evers:

I am writing to share my thoughts regarding your leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic. Initially I had hoped to focus solely on our common ground as I recognize the enormity of the situation facing our state. Unfortunately, your actions to vilify the Legislature, particularly the Republican leadership, makes this hard to envision.

Empathy for the safety and well-being of our neighbors and fellow citizens is something we all share. Leaders of both parties across the nation acted quickly to save lives. Early on many of us accepted those actions for the greater good – even while recognizing some actions stretched constitutional boundaries. Additionally, many private entities acted to protect people. Restaurants, bars, and churches modified to limit contact and enforce social distancing voluntarily. Yet, today, they all still face tremendous uncertainty under your orders.

Vote for Justice Kelly Tuesday

If you haven’t voted by absentee or early absentee voting already, we urge you to do so on April 7. Follow your doctor’s advice if you have an underlying health issue. Otherwise we urge you to vote.
Dean Knudson, Chair of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, is estimating 80% of all voters will have voted via absentee this year. That leaves only 20% to vote Tuesday. Outside of peak times it's likely there will not be a line to vote. There may not even be a line in peak times. Peak times are typically 7:00 – 7:30 am, noon to 1:00 pm and 4:30 to 6:00 pm.

If you see potential election problems on Tuesday report it to: https://wisgop.org/report-voting-issues.
Our Suggestions
  • Go on a non-peak time.
  • Wear a thin pair of gloves while voting. Put them on before you enter the polling location, keep them on until you get back to your vehicle. You can sign and vote easily wearing a glove.
  • Have your photo ID in an easy to reach pocket.
  • Bring your own black ink pen to sign the poll book and mark the ballot.
  • Don’t feel a need to converse with anyone except election workers.
For Your Protection
  • The Dane County Clerk has secured an ample amount of disinfectant for use in polling stations throughout the county.
  • In Madison, election workers are not going to touch your driver license. You will place it on clip board. Each clip board will be sanitized before the next person uses it.
  • Safe spacing will be enforced. Each pen will be sanitized after use. Lower turnout means you’ll be in and out of there in minutes.
The City of Madison has most of the polling sites open although some have been combined. List of Madison polling locations here: Link

Dave Glomp, a member of the Republican Party of Dane County Executive Board who had reservations about the City of Madison curbside voting process decided that he would check it out Friday and try it. Afterward he sent us this about his experience and is encouraging other Madison residents try curbside voting.   

“Curbside at City County Building voting was quick and easy, and they did have a decent process. We did need to produce a photo ID with our legal address to get a ballot, from the clerk. We had to sign for the ballot and initially we talked by cell phone to someone in the clerk’s office to verify our address and our names and voting district.

The personnel helping out curbside, even offered to witnessed and signed as witness our voting.  We then inserted the ballot into an envelope, which included a label printed out by the Clerk. They provided a moisture pen to seal the envelope so no one could see how we voted.  They said that the Sealed ballot would be stored in the Clerks vault until April 7th when they would be opened and certified as being cast absentee in our voting district which also appeared along with our names on the outside of the sealed ballot envelope.  The vote for President was all on one sheet or on a single ballot and you simply have to vote for either one of the Democrats or for Trump or a write in.  Obviously, you can’t vote for both.  Once you vote and fold up the ballot, it is sealed in the envelope so no one can tell if you voted Republican or Democrat. We signed a statement on the outside of the envelope that we produced a valid photo ID and that we provided our legal address for voting, before receiving the ballot.  

It seems like they covered all contingencies!  I felt they did their due diligence as did I as a voter.  It is one more way for Republicans to make sure they are able to vote and get our people elected! That is part of the reason I voted this way! I needed to see if it was a legitimate process.”

_ _ _

A few details, curbside voting is at the City County Building. Turn onto Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. There is a roped off area and the phone number to call is on each parking meter. Call it, give them your name and address. They will come out with the ballot or ballots if there’s more than one person in the car. Voting is confidential. They do not know who you voted for. David said the Madison Clerk’s staff wear gloves and masks and the whole process took only a few minutes. You do not get out of your vehicle. Voting is only during normal city office hours 8:00 am to 6:00 pm on weekdays. This is a much better and safer way to vote than at the polls on April 7. With the lock-down, traffic downtown is light, but if you don't like to drive to the Isthmus area of Madison call Uber! VOTE FOR JUSTICE KELLY!

Impeachment Day 4: Rep. Mike Turner Shuts Down Sondland, Shreds Democrats’ Entire Case

by Debra Heine, American Greatness - November 20th, 2019

Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio) handily dismantled the Democrats’ entire case for impeachment Wednesday, getting U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland to admit that “no one on this planet” told him that financial assistance to Ukraine was tied to corruption investigations.

“After you testified, Chairman [Adam] Schiff ran out and gave a press conference and said he gets to impeach the president of the United States because of your testimony and if you pull up CNN today, right now, their banner says ‘Sondland ties Trump to withholding aid,’” Turner said during Wednesday’s impeachment hearing. “Is that your testimony today, Ambassador Sondland? That you have evidence that Donald Trump tied the investigations to the aid? Because I don’t think you’re saying that.”

After Sondland’s “bombshell” opening testimony, the chyron on CNN stated: “SONDLAND: ‘YES’ THERE WAS QUID PRO QUO IN UKRAINE SCANDAL.”  READ it HERE

Has the Coup Already Happened?

We have an elite that does not accept the American idea of government—government by, for, and of the people.

by Robert Curry - November 10th, 2019 American Greatness

Democrats in Congress, Democratic operatives in the deep state, and co-conspirators in the corporate leftist propaganda conglomerate are attempting to drive Trump from office. This hyperpartisan process rightly has been called an attempted coup. It is also a brazen fraud. In the immortal words of Woody Allen’s Fielding Melish, “it is a travesty . . . a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.”

But in a deeper sense, isn’t it clear that the coup has already happened? By trying to overthrow the results of a presidential election, the political elite is merely showing its hand; America has an elite that believes it now rules in America. We have an elite that does not accept the American idea of government—government by, for, and of the people.

According to our self-selected rulers, the election of Hillary Clinton was the whole point of 2016. They had designated Hillary to succeed Obama. She was to continue the project of fundamentally transforming America that was the focus of the Obama Administration. The voters were supposed to ratify the elite’s selection of Clinton.

Impeachment Will Fail

The Democrats are being led by a coalition of constitutional renegades, political tricksters, and would-be Maduros.
They are speeding over a political cliff. The force of gravity will assert itself.

by Conrad Black - October 22nd, 2019 American Greatness

Two elements of the turbulent current American political scene became clearer over the past week. One is the determination, attested to by almost all Washington insiders whatever side they are on, of the Democratic leadership to force an impeachment trial of the president. Also developing, as a further bleat from the vanishing NeverTrumpers, is the theory that large chunks of Republican loyalty in Congress are starting to peel off and desert the president.

Since all polls show Republican opinion in the country is rock solid behind the president and by any normal criteria—the economy, declining illegal immigration, and his delivery on election promises—he will be reelected easily. This, as the egregious U.S. Representative Al Green (D-Texas) says, is the problem: if Trump isn’t impeached, he will be reelected. But impeachment will be a complete failure, and he will be reelected anyway.

The game has escalated. Donald Trump said he would drain the swamp and he has made a greater effort than any president since Andrew Jackson in 1829 to sweep out the governing elites. It was not on a whim that he had that president’s painting hung behind his desk in the Oval Office and visited Jackson’s home, The Hermitage, in Nashville.

Why Trump Won’t Lose Many Voters Over Syria


by , EPPC, October 15, 2019  The Washington Post

Trump’s rash decision to remove U.S. troops from northern Syria has received harsh criticism from the foreign policy establishment of both parties. That blowback may lead him to reconsider his decision. But if he doesn’t, don’t expect him to lose much voter support over it.

Americans are not focused on foreign policy right now. They do focus on it when American lives are directly threatened, as many perceived was the case a few years back when the Islamic State was growing and terrorist attacks around the globe were frequently in the news. But that’s not the case today. A recent Economist/You Gov poll asked voters about 15 issues, including the war in Afghanistan and foreign policy more broadly. Both were listed by a mere 1 percent as their most important priority, tied for last among all the issues polled.

Voters are also not especially favorable to U.S. involvement in conflicts such as the one in Syria when they do think about foreign policy. The Center for American Progress recently released a comprehensive poll detailing voter attitudes about U.S. foreign policy. The results should worry backers of the foreign policy status quo.

The poll shows significant support for arguments the president has used previously to justify his departures from traditional foreign policy goals. Only 45 percent strongly agreed with the statement that the United States has “a duty to engage in world affairs and help our allies maintain safety and security.” A mere 35 percent strongly agreed that “maintaining an active military presence in other countries is necessary to … protect our people”. And 52 percent strongly agreed with the statement that “we should focus more on helping people here at home instead of getting involved in trying to help people in other parts of the world.”

Republican voters in particular were likelier to agree with more Trumpian views toward foreign policy. Sixty-two percent of Republicans strongly agreed with the statement that we should focus more on people at home. A whopping 74 percent of Republicans — joined by 55 percent of independents — strongly agree that “other countries should pay more for their own security needs and stop expecting the United States to be the world’s policeman.” Only 43 percent of Republicans strongly agree that the United States should help its allies maintain their security, and only 36 percent strongly agree that the United States has a responsibility to promote human rights and basic living standards for people no matter where they live.
