WANTED: Leaders of Tomorrow

At the February meeting of The Frederick County Conservative Club we empaneled four leaders from different walks of the political sphere to discuss “A Path Forward” heading into the 2021-2022 election cycles. It was an evening of strategies and ideas on growing our base, refining our messaging and bringing voters back to a Constitution centered community, state and country.

Frederick Republican Drew Inspiration From CPAC – Part Two

Congresswomen Virginia Foxx gave one of my favorite speeches on day two of the conference. Her speech focused on The Federal government not having any place in education. Nowhere in the Constitution does it mention education. The Biden Administration is using the pandemic to expand government’s role in our lives.

Dan Cox Press Release – “Emergency Response” Legislative Package

Today, Delegate Dan Cox (District 4) announces his “Emergency Response” legislative package. Clearly not all emergencies are equal. Endless emergencies that cause more harm than good only drain resources from the actions that are required. Extending states of emergency are now killing small businesses which provide the lion share of our nongovernment employment and tax base.

Rush To Judgment: The Farce Of The Left

In the wake of the tragic death of George Floyd, fake moral preening left-wing agitators cry racism. They have organized and highjacked peaceful protests resulting in destruction of private businesses and private property. In New York they went as far as to deface St Patrick’s Cathedral, destroy storefronts, set fires and force curfews under the guise of First Amendment rights.

COVID19 – Hogan’s Numbers Game

On March 5, 2020 Governor Larry Hogan declared a State Of Emergency due to an “outbreak of disease”. Maryland now had its first coronavirus death while there were 177 confirmed cases nationwide.
