January 2017 Newsletter

YAHOO!!!    2017 IS FINALLY HERE…AND NOT A DAY TOO SOON!

Forget making resolutions and instead give thanks and count your blessings! 

Health and freedom are at the top of my list. You know “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Obama and the Liberals are out of our way Nationally, onward and upward!

My family is healthy and I live in the greatest country in the World with a new Republican President being sworn in this month.  And to top it off, Republicans will control the Senate and the House!  I have never felt so positive about the future of this country. I don’t think I am alone, just look at the stock market and everyone you talk too.  Even those that didn’t vote for Trump are saying so far they are pleasantly surprised.

But, we have a huge challenge ahead of us here locally.  We lost all the qualified, experienced local judges and so many local officials. I hope you will all join me at the January 25th meeting to hear the details of the November elections and the challenges we have going forward.  Alan Vera will give us the inside story of the voter fraud that is taking place in Harris County and across the states.  Chairman Paul Simpson will fill us in on the details of his game plan going forward. Women, Hispanics and the younger generation are the key to whether Harris County and the Republican Party will thrive or decline.

Bring your friends, 2017 will be an exciting, fun and fruitful new year for VRW and the USA!

November 2016 Newsletter

It has been eight long years for this country, but we are now one week away from electing our new President.  The outcome of this election will be felt all over the world. I know we always say “this is the most important election you will vote in”, but I truly believe THIS ONE IS!  With the exception of the Abraham Lincoln election, never have the differences in the two party’s platforms been clearer.  The future of this country, the direction it will go in for our children and grandchildren will be either a socialistic society or the dream of our founding fathers, a society based on individual liberty.

I hope you will join me in praying for God’s guidance on the voters of this great country. Please find something to do, each and every day until November 8, to help our Republican candidates. If we lose, I believe it will be because of the female vote.  We must work harder to bring more women into the political process.  Our Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers paid a price for our privilege to vote.  Education, education, education, the Republican Party is the party for Women!  No thanks either,  to our elected officials who put their own interests above the well being of the country.  There will be hell to pay for them…. We have that goal to look forward to next year!

I have faith that the silent majority will rise to the challenge!  We must all do our part!  Do not buy into the liberal media and bogus polls!!  Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you are driven to get up and do something about it!  We had 17 qualified experienced Republican candidates, but Mr. Trump was the answer to the voters who had had enough of the status quo.  He won by the largest vote of any candidate in the history of the party.

He has brought thousands of new voters to the polls.  He has sacrificed millions and millions of his own dollars to try to help this country. None of the Republican Establishment has given that much! The Trump Rallies say it all! The movement seems to be spreading to the Independents. Law Enforcement, Unions, Blue Collar Workers, groups that have never endorsed a candidate are endorsing Trump.

Believe in Miracles…. Get out and Vote…. Be a part of this Great Movement To Take Our Country Back!

See ya on the Other side at our next meeting November 16th!

October Meeting – Congressmen McCaul & Poe

We’re honored to have two of our Texas congressmen, Michael McCaul (TX-10) and Ted Poe (TX-2) as speakers for our October meeting.

Congressman Michael McCaulChairman McCaul will discuss the most dangerous and unexpected threats to our national security – and the call for needed serious actions to protect us.   Rep. McCaul became Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security in January 2013, and has oversight of the Department of Homeland Security ensuring it is able to carry out its core mission of protecting the American people from terrorist attacks.  As Chairman, he has prioritized the threat of international and domestic terrorism, border security, cyber security, airport security and fixing dysfunctional management within DHS.

Now in Failure of Imagination:  The Deadliest Threats to Our Homeland – and How to Thwart Them, the sitting chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, who receives daily intelligence about threats materializing against America, depicts in real time the hazards that are closer than we realize.  In this compelling and action-packed narrative, Chairman McCaul outlines realistic scenarios that could inflict more damage on the nation than any attack we’ve yet faced.  He then explains how our vulnerabilities were created, why our enemies are actively contemplating them and what we can do to solve them before it’s too late.  Blue Willow Bookshop will have this book for sale at our luncheon.

 

Congressman Ted PoeCongressman Poe is a strong advocate for lower taxes, free markets, a limited, accountable government, and individual liberty.  He serves on the House Committee of the Judiciary and House Committee of Foreign Affairs.  He also serves as the Chairman of the Terrorism Subcommittee.

Poe came to Congress after spending 30 years in the Harris County Courthouse, first as a prosecutor and then as a criminal court judge.  As Judge, Poe garnered national medial attention for his creative sentences dubbed “Poetic Justice.”  Poe’s common sense and nonsense approach to law has helped him to be a successful advocate for his district.

This year, Poe is 1 of only 34 Members of Congress in both the House and Senate to have legislation signed into law.  In September 8, 2016, Congressman Poe returned to Congress to continue fighting for Texans after spending 8 weeks in MD Anderson Hospital fighting Leukemia.  Congressman Poe has been overwhelmed with support and prayers and is thankful for his progress.

October 2016 Newsletter

VRW Members, we had a record 170 attendees at the September meeting and we expect just as many to hear our two Congressmen at this months meeting! Make your reservations early, there is limited seating!

Are these quotes getting you discouraged?

“He is nothing but a B-List TV personality. He has no business being in politics.”

“He’s dangerously ignorant about international affairs. The Russian leaders will walk all over him.”

“He has no filter – doesn’t think before he speaks.”

“Until recently, he was a Democrat. He’s not a real Republican. He hasn’t paid his GOP dues.”

“He used to be Pro Choice. Now, suddenly he’s Pro Life?”

“He’s a loose cannon. No one wants HIS finger on the nuclear button.”

“His opponent has the experience and political savvy to be president. He does not.”

“He’s just not presidential.”

“His temperament disqualifies him from ever being Commander-In-Chief.”

“He’s proven himself to be mentally unstable.”

“The military will never accept him as Commander-In-Chief. He’s not smart enough.”

“Most Republican voters will just stay home rather than go out and vote for him.”

“He’s almost 70. Much too old to be president.”

“Evangelicals will never support him.”

“He says ‘(Let’s) Make America Great Again’. How dare he say we aren’t still great?!?!”

“90 percent of Republican state chairmen judge him guilty of ‘simplistic approaches,’ with ‘no depth in federal  government administration’ and ‘no experience in foreign affairs.'”

“After all his gaffs, he doubles down on them instead of admitting he made a mistake.”

“He’s threatening to upend our treaties and relationships with our allies by demanding that they pay for their own defense!”

“Because of his gross factual errors he might take rash action and needlessly lead this country into open warfare!”

“He’s racist, xenophobic, and fuels the fires of hatred!”

“You shouldn’t take him seriously. He has a penchant for offering simplistic solutions to hideously complex problems and a stubborn insistence that he is always right in every argument.”

“The rising turnout of his voters are not loyal Republicans or Democrats and are alienated from both parties because neither takes a sympathetic view toward their issues.”

“He wears the disdain he draws from the GOP elites as a badge of honor. Henry Kissinger’s championing the other GOP candidate and attacking him are actually helping him!”

“The fact that he could be deemed a serious candidate for president is a shame and embarrassment for the country.”

The New Yorker observed that his appeal “has to do not with competence at governing but with the emotion he evokes… [He] lets people get out their anger and frustration, their feeling of being misunderstood and mishandled by those who have run our government, their impatience with taxes and with the poor and the weak, their impulse to deal with the world’s troublemakers by employing the stratagem of a punch in the nose.”

“Is he Safe? …he shoots from the hip … he’s over his head … What are his solutions?”

“Voters want to follow some authority figure, — a leader who can take charge with authority; return a sense of discipline to our government; and, manifest the willpower needed to get this country back on track – Or at least a leader from outside Washington.”

 

They were said of Ronald Reagan before he was elected! Just 35 days….get out there and help elect Trump/Pence! Help at the campaign center, work at the polls, make phone calls from your home…

September 2016 Newsletter

Less than 70 days left until we will witness the turn around OR permanent, irreversible decline of this great Republic of ours!  I hate to preach to the choir, but YOU MUST ALL GET UP AND SING!  Never has there been a clearer division of the two candidate’s policies for leading our country.  It is hard for me to imagine people voting for Clinton knowing all her corrupt, illegal, lying ways  but she is leading in the polls.

It is crazy to me that a free, prosperous, democratic society could pick socialism, but history does repeat itself. Look at this 7 minute video explaining the history of the decline of Argentina, which you will find frighteningly similar to where we are today.

 

But… All is not lost… YET… Take a look at this Facebook post of Fox News interviewing Quanell X.   This ranks right up there with a Miracle!

https://www.facebook.com/DocGreeneSr/videos/10155095054892388/

There are many ways you can contribute to the success of this party and future of our country.  We cannot afford to lose the Presidency, Senate or the House.  Please, Choir,  stand up and sing your hearts out for the next 70 days!

Buffie & Jessie WattersLOOK AT ME…I AM IN WATTERS WORLD!

The National Convention was an amazing experience. I wish all could have been there! This is the only time that the media actually loves Texas!  The law enforcement team and the volunteer team were both larger in number than the delegate count!  Very safe and friendly, Cleveland went all out to make us feel welcome.

Now that we have survived the primaries and the Cruz mess at the convention …. THE PEOPLE have spoken. Donald Trump won more votes than anyone in the history of the Republican Party, and now we must buckle down and work like… to overcome our candidate’s verbal outbursts!  HIL-LIAR-Y CANNOT WIN!

The Campaign Center is open!  VRW volunteers, elected officials and candidates will be working out of this location 6 days a week!  Under the direction of Nancy Scott, Bob Hall, Rajada Fleming, Beverly Roberts and others, VRW members pulled off an outstanding Grand Opening with over 170 excited Republicans ready to get to work and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Thanks to all of you for working so tirelessly!

The summer is over, kids are back in school, and we have less than 90 days till the election …. YOU NEED TO GET INVOLVED!  There are many ways YOU can make a difference. I hope you will go by the center before the next VRW general meeting,  August 24, and get your Trump stuff!
