Edwards, President Republican Men's Club (RMC) wanted to let us

Keenan - DC legislative update and how you can
be a citizen activist from the comfort of your keyboard. There
doesn't appear to be a way to contact Dr. Carson directly. Please
write Congressman Amodei and the White House to let Dr. Carson know
what a great job he is doing. Issue #1 - HUD Secretary Ben Carson is doing a
phenomenal job. There are 32,000 public housing units and per
current law, illegal aliens are not allowed to use these units. But
they are using them. Carson has a HUD eviction plan!
There doesn't appear to be a way to contact Dr. Carson directly.
Please write Congressman Amodei and the White House to let Dr.
Carson know what a great job he is doing. Issue #2 - Merit-based immigration reform is precisely
what this country needs. Issue #3 - Hunter Biden was 'stuffing his pockets with
foreign money' while Dad was VP. Excellent expose by Peter Schweitzer.
On the very day Trump was elected, 5 British senior officials
resigned... were they dirty and did they know what was coming?

Morabito - the importance of Trump's
reelection. We old white people can win elections just by
ourselves. We must expand our horizons if we want Trump to win in
NV. Key points to ponder:
1) 50% of the population pays no taxes, which is the
base of Socialism.
2) The history of socialism isn't taught in schools,
but it has failed everywhere it's been tried.
3) We have to learn to play 'identity politics' (i.e.
appeal to different groups by learning what drives them). Some of
these groups are pro-life, Christians, working Hispanics, veterans,
law enforcement, blue collar workers, private union members (not
public). Trump does a good job addressing these groups in his
rallies, but we must also address them in our day-to-day
conversation. Dems have this figured out with all their
Trump only won by 77,000
There are 100 massive
companies controlling 50% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). All
the rest of US companies combined control about 10% and the balance
is controlled by foreign entities.
Did you know the
debit food stamp program is run by JP Morgan Chase
exclusively? That is the kind of monopoly that needs to be
We must, as a
party, adopt a modified version of abortion. There will be
abortion, so get over it and draw a line in the sand and fight it
after the heartbeat is heard (7-8 weeks).
conservatism cannot win elections any longer. Trump's
'Populist" Republicanism can win, so we must embrace that and
Joe can be heard every Thursday,
2:00-3:00 pm on 1180 AM on your local radio dial. His show is
called CEO Business Mind, but being a political junkie, he inserts
politics into his business discussion all the time.
Carter - Due to health and financial stresses,
David will not seek reelection to the State Board of Education,
which handles K-12 education. There are 4 elected seats on
the Board, which meets 9 times/year, which take up most of one
day. There are optional committees to serve on and sometimes
it is necessary to attend the Legislative Session to testify at a
hearing. The Teachers' Union is present, attends some sessions
and makes presentations. He is giving us a heads up, in case
we or someone we know might want to consider a run.
Koeppe - If you want reading material, Vol. 1
& 2 of the Mueller Report is online at Amazon.com for $9-10.
Herman - There is another issue she wants to
inform about: we are losing our County Manager, John
Slaughter in a month. They are in the "appointment stage"
and had a list of 11 - all local - candidates. Commissioner
Herman urged them to get this right, as the wrong decision could
cost the County millions. They will have to hire a head-hunter to
RS2477 - currently there is access to public lands that are not
easily accessible. The Feds are making this increasingly difficult,
especially since 1976. RS2477 is a federal bill that confirms
historic right-of-ways that existed prior to October 21, 1976.
Without this bill, it would get to the point of no camping, hiking,
walking, off-roading, trailblazing on any of those public
lands. US Congressman Tom O'Halleran of AZ has written a
RS2477 and Congressman Steven Horsford is considering co-sponsoring
it. According to Commissioner Herman, every Nevadan will
benefit from this legislation. We need to write Congressman
Horsford and encourage him to sign on and sponsor it. Read
the correspondence about the O'Halleran bill HERE.
Larson - reminded us that Planned Parenthood
was created by Margaret Sanger to eliminate the Black race.
And they accuse us of being racists!?!
Meeting - Wednesday, June 12, same time, same
