New American Article On Paul Nehlen, Challenger to Speaker Paul Ryan

Below is an article on Paul Nehlen written by the New American Magazine, a publication of the John Birch Society, that is worth your reading.

Standing on Constitution, Businessman Aims to Depose Paul Ryan

If you have been paying attention, many in the so-called “conservative” media have come out against Paul Nehlen, trying to take him down.  We have consistently said that the Rock River Patriots do not endorse candidates, but we will call candidates out when they don’t live up to their promises. Isn’t it funny how many of these “conservative” voices, who claim to be independent and non-establishment, are once again acting as lap dogs and doing the bidding of the big government Republicans?  They tout Paul Ryan’s conservative credentials, yet fail to mention he supported TARP, the bank bailouts, the Patriot  Act, and budgets that are anything but fiscally responsible.  Paul Ryan is credited as being this “budget architect” proposing budget plans that “really cut spending” over a 10 – 20 year window.  Paul Ryan is laughing at his naive supporters, knowing full well that future Congresses will not be held to his budget proposals.

Just remember…Don’t trust something at face value just because you hear it from “conservative” media.  Everyone has an agenda.  The RRP have been very clear about our agenda, and it can be seen here.

Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States?

Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States?  The GOP’s chickens have come home to roost.

It is definitely an interesting time when we see that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States.  Many “so-called conservative” pundits are now continuing with the Never Trump mantra.

It’s important to examine how and why this has happened.  The two big government parties have no one to blame but themselves.

TEA Party conservatives, libertarians, and constitutionalists already know that the Progressives are really just big government loving socialists and communists. There is little explanation that needs to be said here about the Democratic Party. Most understand that the Democratic Party is run by radical leftists with an ideology that is anathema to our Constitutional Republic.  They really don’t figure into the Trump equation.

Many conservatives and libertarians in the Tea Party / Patriot movement got involved because they were angry with the status quo of the Republican Party. They worked hard to get Republicans elected who claimed conservative credentials. However, throughout the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration, the so-called conservatives behaved like there was nothing they could do and sold out again, and again. Many of us recognize this was nothing new.  It is been going on for a long time. Ronald Reagan was in favor of an assault weapons ban, but you won’t hear that from these conservative pundits who attempt to deify Ronald Reagan as “the standard” by which all other current legislators are measured.

Really what we see on a national level is a Republican and Democrat flavor of the big government anti-liberty party. This is a two sided party run by “Insiders” who know better than the “rabble”.

Hillary Clinton will carry on more of the same policies that the Nobel Peace Prize-winning President has started. The Middle East is in chaos because of the intervention by Obama and Bush.  More of our brave soldiers and diplomats will be hung out to die like the brave Americans in Benghazi Libya were while on Hillary’s watch as Secretary of State. The name Clinton is synonymous with corruption, and I can imagine the government will only get worse with Hillary in the driver’s seat.  We will continue to have an invasion on our Southern border.

The rhetoric from Ted Cruz’ campaign seemed to suggest that he was a political outsider. However, he has worked in government virtually his entire life.  Cruz’ wife was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and has ties to one of the big Wall Street Banks. Many are rightfully suspicious of these connections.  Many bible-believing Christians are concerned about Cruz’ ties to Dominion Theologists.

It seems to me that we had the choice between two real political insiders. And then there’s Trump. Make no mistake about it, Donald Trump is a wildcard. Nobody can say for sure what he is going to do.  What Trump demonstrated in the Republican debates was that he was not afraid of speaking his mind.  There is no doubt we can do without the vulgarity.  However, his stance on illegal immigration is what gets him some of the biggest applause lines anywhere.  He is stating the obvious.  Things that need to be said and done.

The question is, given how many Americans feel betrayed by the political insiders, is it worth the risk to vote for Trump?  It is pretty clear Trump is not controlled by anyone.  That is what seems to be the appeal of him.  I contend that is why many conservatives have been voting for Trump, knowing he is not a conservative.  Trump is a pragmatist, but he is not controlled.  The general public is starting to wake up to the idea that the system is rigged.  Americans want America put first, not special interests.  Donald Trump is speaking to this, whether or not he believes it is another question.

If Trump finds his way to the White House, maybe his wildcard factor will open the eyes of Americans to the fact that we should not have an “all powerful imperial” President.  Maybe the Trump wildcard factor will be a catalyst for reassertion of Sovereignty by the States.  Maybe the Trump wildcard factor will be an incentive for Congress to actually do their job and restrain all the unconstitutional activities / agencies of the federal government.  If that is the result of a potential Trump presidency, that may be a wildcard worth playing.

Response to Rep. Jim Steineke’s Open Letter To Trump Supporters

This is in response to Rep. Jim Steineke’s Open Letter To Trump Supporters.  Rep. Jim Steineke, Representative of the 5th Assembly District is the Majority Leader of the Wisconsin State Assembly.

You can read his letter here: An Open Letter To Donald Trump Supporters #NeverTrump

The Response

Jim Steineke’s open letter to Trump supporters is interesting to say the least.  I do not involve myself in Facebook, but I have a comment to Steineke’s open letter.    

My comment to Steineke is yes, we worked hard to elect more Republicans and the thanks we get is that his name seems to be absent from the co-sponsor list for AB 305 (The Baby Body Parts Bill).  This bill has been held in the committee which he chairs, (Rules Committee) since it was referred there 9/10/15.  Maybe he should be careful throwing rocks at other candidates when he himself lives in a glass house.  Is this the conduct of a ‘conservative’ Republican assemblyman or is he just following orders from Speaker Robin Vos and refusing to bring the bill to the floor for a vote because Vos says there aren’t the votes to pass it excuse.  We all know there are the votes to pass it and even Jim Steineke would probably vote for the bill if it came to the floor, because even though he was not willing to co-sponsor AB 305, I doubt he would vote no in an election year.

Many of us are not over joyed with Trump as the leading candidate for president, but the Republican party is more to blame for that than anyone else. The Republican party is also to blame for AB 305 dying in Steineke’s committee.  If I lived in Steineke’s district I would be able to write An Open Letter to Jim Steineke Supporters #Never Steineke.  AB 305 would be an issue that should stop anyone from supporting him in this next election cycle.

From Wisconsin Election Watch:

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.

JoAnn Miller of Jefferson, who is challenging former Jefferson County District Attorney David Wambach for an open seat on the court, signed the recall petition against Governor Walker on December 7, 2011 according to records listed on PutWisconsinFirst.com.    She used the address of 1157 Hillebrand Drive in Jefferson, which exactly matches the address listed on candidate registration records provided by the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board.

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.

Miller currently serves as the municipal judge of the Jefferson Municipal Court.  Other than serving as a municipal judge, she currently owns her own law firm dealing with divorce litigation.  She is graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and Marquette Law School.

Wisconsin Election Watch contacted Judge Miller for comment.  She said: “I am a firm believer in letting people having a say…It was out of frustration.”

We Don’t Want Tommy Thompson To Be Our Senator

Are you in the crowd who thinks former WI Governor Tommy Thompson should run for U.S. Senate?  Here are a couple videos that might change your mind.  He supports Obamacare or something like it, and he wants you to get “chipped”.  There are many other reasons not to support Tommy, but this is a good start.

To spare you from getting sick, watch at about two minutes into the first video.

Here Tommy is talking about getting a Verichip from several years ago.  For students of bible prophecy, you may recognize this as a precursor to “the mark of the beast” from Revelation 13:16-17.
