Contact Your Legislators

Contact your legislators in support the upcoming right to work bill as well as being repeal of the 48 hour waiting period for handgun purchases.

Right to work is all about personal freedom. An individual should not have to be forced into joining a union just because of their chosen career field is one dominated by unions.  The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday,  February 24th.  Invited speakers will go first (likely taking up first 2-3 hours) then the public will have the opportunity to testify.  RTW hearing, February 24th, 10:00 am in Room 411 South of the State Capitol  (Senate’s Labor Committee).

Senate Bill 35 and Assembly Bill 49 – Repealing the 48 hour waiting period on handgun purchases only makes sense.  A buyer has a background check completed as part of the purchasing process . The other thing to recognize is that the 48 hour waiting period does not apply to long guns. If a person is determined to do harm to someone else using a gun, it is very easy for them to obtain a long  gun without the 48 hour waiting period.  Finally, as we always need to mention, criminals do not obey the law anyway. These measures simply infringe on the law abiding citizens natural right of self-defense.

ALERT! Over the weekend the Speaker of the Assembly, Rep. Robin Vos spoke out IN FAVOR of Common Core at the Racine GOP Caucus!

On Saturday, February 21st, Rep. Robin Vos spoke about Common Core at the Racine County GOP caucus.  He said: “Common Core isn’t bad and it’s just a bunch of goals everybody would agree with.”

Rep. Vos is spreading a myth and this is very, very dangerous!
We all know that Common Core is much more than “just a bunch of goals”.  It is a Big Government/Big Business takeover of public education, a standardization of our children’s minds, an objectification of our teachers, and a removal of local control from our school systems.  Rep. Robin Vos and Governor Scott Walker must be made aware that we do not appreciate such dismissive remarks about such a crucial issue.
Our calls for will be to:

Rep Robin Vos – Speaker - (608) 266-9171
(also email Rep. Vos at Rep.Vos@legis.wisconsin.gov)
Governor Scott Walker – (608) 266-1212
(also email Governor Walker at govgeneral@wisconsin.gov)

You can use a message similar to the following:

“I understand that, over the weekend, Rep. Robin Vos said that Common Core is ‘just a bunch of goals everyone would agree with’.  Well, I DON’T AGREE WITH COMMON CORE.  Its goals are to standardize education in America in a way that demoralizes teachers, removes local control of schools from parents and taxpayers, disrespects differences among students, and profits big education corporations.  We can’t afford this.  The cost to us in terms of dollar, our children’s future, and academic freedom is just too high.  Why won’t Rep. Vos join Governor Walker and push for a COMPLETE REPEAL of Common Core?”

Rock River Patriots Meeting Friday January 9th – CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER

I regret to inform all of you planning to attend the Rock River Patriots Meeting tomorrow night, January 9th, 2015, that the meeting has been cancelled due to the weather.  We received notice that many people were not going to be able to attend because of the bad weather.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.   We hope to see you all in February at our next meeting!

 

Thank You and Merry Christmas!

On behalf of the Rock River Patriots, I want to thank you for all you have done this past year. As we look ahead to the upcoming year, we see there is much to be done. It is an opportunity to truly change Wisconsin for the better. This is an opportunity to make a lasting impact and return our state to something great.

However, with all that needs to be done, it is easy to forget why Christmas is so important in the first place. We continually hear the cliche that “the true meaning of Christmas is about giving.” Yes, it is the season to be giving, but there is more to the story. The true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of God’s gift to mankind. God sent his son, Jesus Christ to provide a means of salvation to a fallen people. Only by accepting God’s free gift of Jesus Christ, can we truly be free. I encourage you all to take the time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and thank God for his gift this Christmas season.

Finally, the deadline for submitting papers / signatures to be a candidate in the upcoming spring election is upon us. The 6th of January 2015 is the declaration deadline for school board and other municipal races. These are important races out of which future conservative leaders of the state can emerge. One of the most important local races is your school board. Not only does your local school district account for close to half of the property tax bill you see each year, but it also oversees what your kids will learn. Through control of the educational system, the Marxists, Socialists, and Globalists have indoctrinated many young minds. It is time we take it back!

There is a lot to do, and we look forward to an exciting 2015. Our next meeting will be Friday January 9th at 6:00pm in Fort Atkinson at the Dwight Foster Library

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Farrakhan green-lights violence, calls for racial holy war at massive rally

I thought Louis Farrakhan was a practitioner of the “religion of peace”…Maybe the religion of peace is not so peaceful.  Coming to a city near you…be prepared!

Here is the link: http://topconservativenews.com/2014/11/farrakhan-green-lights-violence-calls-for-racial-holy-war-at-massive-rally/

by Kyle Rogers

On November 22nd, 2014, the Nation of Islam [NOI]  turned Morgan State University [MSU] into a rally for racial holy war.

MSU is a black college in Maryland chaired by black power activist, and former head of the NAACP, Kweisi Mfume. It has 8,000 students. The event was called the Black United Summit International Conference. The event was organized by the NOI and sponsored by the MSU Student Government. NOI leader Louis Farrakhan was the keynote speaker. Several other leaders of the NOI also spoke.

Over 2,000 people attended and heard NOI leader Louis Farrakhan deliver a violent speech calling for race war. Most were extremely enthusiastic about the message.

The student president, student vice president, and leaders of many other student organizations and fraternities were all in attendance. Numerous members of the MSU faculty attended. Also present was Maryland State Representative Jill Carter.

Other speakers include Marshall Eddie Conway, a former Black Panther leader who spent 44 years in prison. Pam Africa, a former member of the notoriously violent MOVE group in Philadelphia.

Louis Farrakhan depicted attorney Benjamin Crump, Jesse Jackson, Barak Obama, and Eric Holder as part of what he called the “pacifiers” and “cowardly punkified black leadership.” He said these people are trying to stop the explosion of justifiable violence against “the white man’s tyranny on black people.”

Obama was especially single out as a bad black leader. Obama is responsible for killing Libyan dictator Qaddafi, the largest financial supporter of the Nation of Islam. Farrakhan denounced Obama as being controlled by wealthy Jewish backers at the time.

Farrakhan said young blacks are ready for war and don’t want “compromising talk.” He praised the violence in Ferguson saying the rioters have put white people “on edge” for the first time.

Farrakhan’s rhetoric sounded a lot like ISIS railing against the Muslim Brotherhood. ISIS attacks the Muslim Brotherhood and their political parties for participating the Democratic process instead of immediately resorting to violent Jihad.

Farrakhan said “You may not want to fight, but you better get ready. Teach your babies how to throw the bottle if they can’t bite.” Farrakhan went on to say that if 50% of all black people died fighting the white man, it would be worth it.

Just 15 years ago, Farrakhan was giving speeches saying violence was not practical because “the enemy has tanks.” At Morgan State University he declared that young black people today are “not afraid of tanks.”

At the end of the speech Farrakhan screams “we’ll tear this god damn country up.” At that point, the crowd leaps to their feet and cheers. When Farrakhan was done speaking, the crowd chanted “Allahu Akbar.”

 

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

The Rock River Patriots want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Even thought our country is headed in the wrong direction, we have much to be thankful for.  Please take a little time out of your busy schedule today and give thanks to God for all His blessings and pray for this nation.

Below is the text of the first Thanksgiving proclamation by George Washington during his first year as President.  It sets aside Thursday, November 26 as “A Day of Public Thanksgiving and Prayer.”

Signed by Washington on October 3, 1789 and entitled “General Thanksgiving,” the decree appointed the day “to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God.”

While there were Thanksgiving observances in America both before and after Washington’s proclamation, this represents the first to be so designated by the new national government.

General Thanksgiving

WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favour; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLIC THANKSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

 

NOW THEREFORE, I do recommend and assign THURSDAY, the TWENTY-SIXTH DAY of NOVEMBER next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed;– for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish Constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted;– for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge;– and, in general, for all the great and various favours which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

 

And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions;– to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us); and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

 

GIVEN under my hand, at the city of New-York, the third day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.

 

(signed) G. Washington
