Jeff Sessions: Attorney General

What a great pick he is. Here is Senator Sessions in his famous The Masters Of The Universe address to the Senate

Quotes of the Day

Trump’s remarkable victory is their victory. It is a victory for democracy, for the common men and women of America.

The factory workers, the veterans, the cops, the kitchen help, people who plow the fields, make the trains run, pick up the trash and keep the country together and keep it moving — they are all now winners. As one, these cogs of our daily life rose up in a peaceful revolution, their only weapons the ballot box and their faith in the future. Michael Goodwin

 

Barack Obama has been a disaster for the Democratic Party. When he took office in 2009, Democrats had large majorities in the House and Senate, 29 governorships, and 27 state legislatures. Now it has neither chamber, and only 18 governorships and 12 state legislatures. There was a Republican landslide for the Kentucky state senate, where the GOP took a majority for the first time in 91 years. Steven Hayward

A Sign of Citizenship, by Kevin D Williams

The bearing of arms is a sign of citizenship, which is to say, of being a full participant in government who acts through it, as opposed to subjectship, the state of being a passive being who does not act through government but who is acted upon. In that sense, it is like the ability to vote or to be eligible for service in government. Frederick Douglass understood this linkage perfectly, inasmuch as these ideas were much better understood in those more literate days. “A man’s rights rest in three boxes,” he said. “The ballot box, jury box, and the cartridge box. Let no man be kept from the ballot box because of his color. Let no woman be kept from the ballot box because of her sex.” The militias contemplated by the Second Amendment were armed citizen volunteers who could act to use the force of arms to keep the peace in an emergency; they are entitled to act in the peacekeeping role generally reserved for the state because, being the citizens of a republic, they are the state, the very seat of its sovereignty.

Past vs Present – Why ordinary Americans feel out of touch with today’s politician/kings

harry-s-truman-retirementHarry & Bess

Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.

The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri. His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.

When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an ‘allowance’ and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.

After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.

When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.”

Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.”

As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.

Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale.

Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!

I say dig him up and clone him!

The Ambush and Death of LaVoy Finicum

From eyewitness Victoria Sharp: “He’s like, just shoot me then, just shoot me — and they did, they shot him dead,” Sharp said. “They shot him right there, he was just walking — I saw it. I swear to God, he was just walking with his hands in the air.”

Union County Republicans,

Doug Osburn has resigned as Union Co. Republican Central Committee Chairman to pursue other political interests. The Executive Board has appointed me as chairman pro-tem until our next meeting, which will be held on January 6, 2016, 12 noon, at the Flying J Restaurant. At that time we will hold an election for committee chairman along with other business. That term will run until November 2016. Anyone that is interested in running for the chairman position please plan on attending the January meeting for nomination. I plan on running for the position.  Please note that only elected Precinct Committee Persons (PCP’s) will be eligible to vote for the new chairman.

The Executive Board will be holding a couple of meetings in December to organize and plan for the coming year. Next year will be a busy as their will be national, state, and county elections. We hope that all the PCP’s will get involved as we will need a lot of help. Please invite your fellow Republicans to get involved and bring them to the monthly Republican meetings.

We will send out a reminder email and also be doing some phone calls.

If you have any questions or comments feel free to call or email me.

Fred Hawkins, Chairman Pro-Tem

Marijuana Opt-out Statement

The following statement from the UCRCC executive committee was shared with the Union County commissioners at the September 16 public hearing:

The Union County Republican Executive Committee urges caution on the issue of recreational marijuana usage. Rather than risk a negative impact on our quality of life in Union County, we believe the county should slow down and “opt-out” at this time to further evaluate the serious concerns that currently exist. We know that many professional medical organizations, including the AMA, are either opposed to recreational use or are urging extreme caution. We note the concern of local law enforcement and that the voters of Union County have voted to opt-out at this time. For all these reasons we recommend a YES vote on the issue of opt-out for recreational marijuana use.
