The Republican Party of Dane County applauds the Supreme Court's decision today in overturning Roe v. Wade. 

Supreme Court precedent has never been absolute!  A century ago, previous decisions supported the horrible institution of slavery and it took a Civil War to finally rid our nation of that travesty.  Decades ago, the Supreme Court similarly erred in what some claim created a new "right" to abortion.

For approximately two years, the Dane County Board of Supervisors has used COVID-19 as an ongoing excuse to waive its own rules and hold virtual meetings that keep the public at arm’s length. This practice has flouted the spirit of Wisconsin’s open meetings laws, wrongly depriving and marginalizing the Dane County residents the board purports to serve. Regardless of the original intention, Dane County has had no lawfully declared health emergency since at least June of 2021. No more wiggle room exists on this matter. Yet the board claims it will not return to in-person meetings until at least late June of this year.

Press Release - Poll Workers Are Essential to Fair Elections

For immediate release:

As the November 30th deadline for submission of party-nominated poll workers looms the City of Madison has declared a new requirement that all poll workers must be completely Covid -19 vaccinated.  Republican Party of Dane County (RPDC) Chairman Scott Grabins questions the legality of this move. “We have been working diligently for months to identify people interested and committed to becoming poll workers throughout Dane County.  Now in the eleventh hour, the Madison City Clerk seems to want to limit those lists by issuing this mandate.”  Grabins stated.

”We seriously question the legality of this move as the requirements for poll workers are clearly defined by State Statues. We will not allow this last-minute tactic deter our efforts, as we intend to continue to gather the names of those interested in guaranteeing election integrity and will not be a party to collecting anyone’s personal health information,” Grabins continued.

 “Rest assured that RPDC will not allow potential poll workers to be intimidated by the City of Madison.  Vaccination status should not be a requirement for anyone to participate in the free and fair execution of elections in the State of Wisconsin.  This is not the first, or likely the last, time that Madison has created their own special rules to try to affect an election,” Grabins concluded.

Wisconsin Elections Commission Promotes Election Fraud

Election fraud must continue to be investigated and prosecuted if our elections are going to have any integrity. 

A recent investigation by the Racine County Sheriff’s office has produced clear evidence that fraudulent absentee ballots originating from nursing homes and other such long-term care facilities were cast and counted in the November 2020 Election.  The investigation by Sheriff Schmaling raises questions of similar potential situations statewide.  State Statutes require that Special Voting Deputies monitor ballots being cast by those that have cognitive disabilities.  Unfortunately, the Wisconsin Elections Commission, (WEC), enabled the fraud by saying that there was no need for Special Voting Deputies to witness votes in such homes.

This situation was first brought to the attention of the Sheriff’s Office by a Racine Resident whose mother voted in the 2020 election, even though she passed away a month prior to the election. The person said that her mother was not cognitive enough to vote months prior to her death.  It was determined that dozens of others in this facility who were unable to cognitively vote voted anyway.  Again, the WEC decision to violate state law enabled this to occur.

Press Release - End Mandates & Let Families Decide

As Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) continues to issue seemingly endless decrees for mask mandates, it is long past time to ask them for “more” – more accountability and more leadership. Anyone who has travelled beyond the borders of Dane County has seen how most of the state and country has already moved beyond mandates. PHMDC needs to back off mandates and instead better provide us with complete, unbiased, and non-partisan information so that every individual in Dane County can make informed health decisions for themselves and their families.

I’ve had it!

I’ve had it!  Innocent American people are being savaged by the federal government by being told that they are the reason for new increases of Covid cases nationwide.  Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants with the Covid virus flood across our Southern Border  unabated!  The overwhelmed border patrol are unable to deal with the numbers of illegals, much less screen those with the contagious Covid virus and quarantine them. These Covid spreaders are being released, almost immediately and sent to almost every state in the nation, making the Southern Border fiasco the largest unfettered Covid spreading event ever.

U.S. Not A Sovereign Nation

The greatest country in the free world, the United States of America has ended as we have known it!  It is no longer sovereign, as our southern border has been virtually eliminated by the Biden/Harris Administration. The Border Crisis began even before the January 21, 2021 Inauguration of the Biden Administration. In a welcoming message to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, Biden and Harris encouraged people to surge to the southern U.S. border, where even if apprehended, they would not be deported. 

One of Joe Biden’s first Executive Orders was to end the building of the very effective Border Wall on the southern border. The result, thousands, and thousands of immigrants daily since January 21, have flooded and overwhelmed border immigration officials, fences, technology, and facilities to process and temporarily house immigrants.  Regardless of what you call it, the net effect is that it has totally opened the southern border of our country to not only those from South, or Central America countries and Mexico.  Many recently apprehended, included foreign terrorists, including many on active foreign terrorist lists.  They were from Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, to name but a few.  

All immigration border patrol officers previously assigned to patrol the border to intercept, undocumented persons, drugs, sex traffickers, etc., have been removed to help deal with the huge influx of humanity flooding at border crossing sites.  Many of those coming are children, not accompanied by parents, but rather being transported across deserts by drug cartels!  Many have been recruited to carry in drugs, and many are being sex trafficked to cover the cost of their trip to the border. Drugs and sex trafficking was nearly ended by the prior administration, but that has been totally turned around in only two plus months. 

There are various aged kids coming unaccompanied by adults.  The largest number of what have been described as children, are aged 15-18+, some even involved in cartels and gangs like the notorious MS-13.  One of the most disturbing problems relates to the number of those coming into our country with Covid-19, none wearing masks, or otherwise following Covid-19 pandemic protocols, which all Americans have been subject to for more than a year.  Because of the numbers, many are never screened for Covid-19 and thus spreading it to other immigrants, including our citizens.  Many are never apprehended simply crossing into open areas in Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico and are not ever tested for Covid-19. Spikes in Covid-19 are likely due to those transported into our county.  

We as Americans, not just on the border, but across the country, will pay for this flood of illegals. Illegal immigrants are being transported not just to border states and communities, but also to almost every state in the nation with little or no tracking or their required follow up in immigration courts. Many areas will be overwhelmed thus taxing existing health, education, and welfare resources. 

Finally, I would be remiss if I did not also point out that this crisis is also creating problems for every immigrant trying to enter.  The overcrowding in facilities holding those being processed has created numerous hardships for those being processed and even crowding that may be exacerbating the instances of Covid-19 and its spread to other immigrants and staff.   Poor planning and communications and quick changes of border policies also hurts those trying to enter our country. 

This is the dictionary definition of a Crisis!  Call your U.S. Senator and House of Representatives member and tell them this must stop immediately or we no longer have a country.
