We hope everyone had a great July 4th Holiday, and reflected of the spirit of Independence that made us a great nation!
The Rock River Patriots will be having a meeting in Fort Aktinson this Friday July 11th at 6:00pm.  We will be meeting in the community room of the Dwight Foster Library located at 209 Merchants Ave.
At this meeting we will discuss current events and initiatives.  We we welcome two special guest speakers:

We welcome Cody Horlacher, a candidate for the 33rd Assembly District.  Cody wanted to introduce himself and answer any questions we may have.  Cody is currently an Assistant District Attorney for Walworth County.  Cody graduated from Marquette Law School and UW-Whitewater Business School.  While at Marquette, Cody was on the board of the Federalist Society. The Federalist Society is an organization dedicated to conservative issues in the law, among them, States’ Rights and the 10th Amendment.  Furthermore, he Chaired the Walworth County Republican Party before attending law school.  When Cody was Chair of the UW-Whitewater College Republicans, he hosted the first Tea Party events on campus.
We also welcome Usama Dakdok, author and radio host to speak on “The Truth About Islam”.  Usama Dakdok was born in Egypt and grew up in a Christian home. While in government schools in Egypt, he learned about Islam just as every other student does in a Muslim country. Usama also studied for a university degree in Egypt which included the study of Sharia, Islamic Law. He came to America in 1992. With all of his knowledge about Islam, he felt he could reach out to Muslim people in America with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thus he began The Straight Way of Grace Ministry.
For over a decade Usama has traveled the country with a message, “Revealing the Truth about Islam,” not only to equip the church to minister to Muslims but also to warn Americans, especially the Church, about the deceptive methods being used by Muslims to lead so many Americans into the cult of Islam.Usama earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology and a Master’s Degree in Missiology from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author of two important works. Because Arabic is his native language, he discovered that the commonly used English translations of the Qur’an were full of misrepresentations that minimized its violent teachings as written in the Arabic text. Therefore, his first project, The Generous Qur’an, is an accurate English translation with study notes and material to help Christians share the Gospel with Muslims. Second, Exposing the Truth about the Qur’an, the Revelation of Error is a two volume expose’ of the Qur’an and Muslim scholars.
Usama can be heard M-F at 12:30 CST on the broadcast network VCY America and online at http://www.vcyamerica.org. He also broadcasts live online every Saturday from 9 pm-11 pm CST with “Revealing the Truth about Islam” on Blogtalk Radio’s “Radio Jihad.” Usama is featured on http://www.ABNSat.org and Trinity Channel Network Television sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide with Muslims in English and Arabic.

Vote Tomorrow April 1st!

This is going to be a very low turn-out election tomorrow, which means your vote matters that much more!  Research the candidates running…Check and see if they signed the Walker recall here: http://www.iverifytherecall.com/.  That should tell you where their sympathies lie, and it is not with the taxpayers.

Vote for the candidates who represent the philosophy that government is best when it is small with limited power.  As government grows, freedom shrinks.

Jefferson County Area Residents: There are several important referendum questions…There are school district referendums in Fort Atkinson and Johnson Creek (which means they want to spend money!), and one referendum in Lake Mills to change from to having a council/manager to a mayor/common council.  As over taxed as we all are, spending more money is never a good option.  VOTE NO!

In the Jefferson County Circuit Court Branch 3 race former DA and current Judge David Wambach is being opposed by Joanne Miller, a Walker Recall signer.

For Jefferson County Supervisor District 20, current supervisor Jim Mode is being opposed by Frankie Fuller, a Walker Recall signer.

For Jefferson County Supervisor District 14, Rex Weston is facing off with Kirk Lund, a Walker Recall signer.

Jefferson County Circuit Court Candidate Signs the Walker Recall

By Kyle Maichle, Editor of Wisconsin Election Watch,

JEFFERSON – A second candidate for a circuit court judgeship in Wisconsin has signed a recall petition against Governor Scott Walker.

The Jefferson Municipal Judge becomes the second judicial candidate in the 2014 spring elections to sign a recall petition against Governor Walker.  The other judicial candidate to sign a recall petition is Laura Gramling Perez in Milwaukee County.  Gramling-Perez admitted to signing the recall during a Republican branch caucus in Cudahy.

David Wambach, who is Miller’s opponent, was an appointed to the Jefferson County Circuit Court in June of 2013 by Governor Scott Walker to fill a vacancy due to the retirement of Judge Jacqueline Erwin.  Before becoming a judge, Wambach was noted as an expert cold-case prosecutor.

Olga Halaburda Bio

Olga Halaburda is a first-generation Ukrainian-American and has family in Ukraine. She grew up in the Detroit-area, where there is a large and active Ukrainian community, a Ukrainian elementary school, and several Ukrainian Catholic and Ukrainian Orthodox churches.

Olga is a former local television news reporter. She reported for WFRV in Green Bay for nearly 18 years.

In her time with WFRV, she put her television production skills to work on personal project that grew into a business. She started Ukrainian Power Videos, Inc., and Olga produced a series of Ukrainian language puppet videos to help teach children the Ukrainian language and instill in them pride for their heritage.

In 2004, Olga had an opportunity to travel to Ukraine to cover Ukraine’s peaceful Orange Revolution as a journalist for WFRV. The Orange Revolution was the people’s reaction to government corruption in the rigged presidential election. It was widely known that Russian President Vladimir Putin funded the pro-Russian candidate, Victor Yanukovych. The peaceful Orange Revolution resulted in a repeat presidential election, in which Olga also served as an election observer. Mr. Yanukovych lost the repeat election in 2004, but gained the presidency in 2010.

Olga will speak to the public about the current crisis in Ukraine, which began in November 2013 when then-President Yanukovych ordered his police force to beat protestors who disagreed with his decision to pull out of a trade deal with the European Union. When the protests began to focus on the abuse of citizens, abuse of power, and corruption within the Yanukovych regime, Mr. Yanukovych illegally stripped the people of basics freedoms including, but not limited to the freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press.

We have invited Olga Halaburda to speak to the general public about the deadly Maidan Revolution in Kyiv, and Putin’s invasion of Ukraine which immediately followed. An expert in the history of Ukraine, she will explain the current crisis and provide insights not being reported in the western media.
