Why Don’t MOCO Officials Practice What They Preach?

By Gail Weiss

At the community picnic in Wheaton that I attended on Sunday, September 22nd, I stopped by a booth that had a brochure on “Hate Violence” from the Montgomery County Office of Human Rights and Human Rights Commission. In this brochure it describes what a “hate crime” is, as well as “hate-motivated acts” that do not rise to the level of a hate crime but is an act that still leaves one feeling victimized, so says the brochure. “Name-calling” is one example they give.

If we are to believe that this county policy is sincerely held by our county officials, then how do they reconcile referring to their own county citizens as “neo-Nazi sympathizers” in their September 5th press release just because citizens spoke out against a very controversial  (and possibly unconstitutional?) county policy of giving “sanctuary” to illegal aliens?


An Immigrant’s Story

By Josephine Wang

The setting was a courthouse in Brooklyn, New York, where new immigrants were sworn in as American citizens. This ceremony is probably repeated every day, somewhere in America.

In 1953, the United States of America was still savoring the sweetness of the World War II victory over tyranny. General Dwight Eisenhower was regarded as the conquering hero who deserved to be our 34th president. The Times Square photo of the sailor kissing a white uniformed nurse became an iconic example of the joyful and patriotic sentiments of that era.

September 6 - 2019 Statement from Chairman Bush

Press Release


For Immediate Release
Date:  September 6, 2019
Email:  press@mcgop.com

Statement by Montgomery County Republican Party
Chairman, Alexander A. Bush

Rockville, MD -- Earlier today, the Montgomery County Council released a blatantly dishonest statement defending its decision to join County Executive Elrich in announcing the most restrictive policy of non-cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the D.C. metro area.

Montgomery County citizens, across all races and political parties, are entitled to condemn this policy for what it is: a dangerous political stunt by politicians seeking kudos for defying President Trump, while callously disregarding the human cost of their policy.

The County Council deflects this well-merited criticism by accusing their critics of joining with “neo-Nazi sympathizers” to spread disinformation. This is a blatant attempt to frighten into silence anyone who would speak out.

The members of the County Council are entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.

Within thirty days of the announcement of this policy, there have been seven illegal immigrants charged with sexual assault in Montgomery County, with child victims in at least three cases. If these crimes continue at this rate, illegal immigrants would be responsible for more than eighty sexual assaults against Montgomery County residents each year.

The County Council assures us that their policy of non-cooperation is irrelevant to the incidence of sexual assault in our county, but at least some of these crimes are occurring in Montgomery County because our county leadership as made it very clear that, for people here illegally and who intend to commit serious crimes, Montgomery County is the place to be.

The High Cost of Political Theatre

by Alexander A. Bush, Chairman, MCGOP

Rockville, MD -- This July, County Executive Marc Elrich proudly announced the most restrictive policy on non-cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the D.C. metro area. At the time, I said that this was a “political stunt all about opposing a president he hates, even at the risk of the safety of Montgomery County residents." Sadly, Mr. Elrich has taken every opportunity since then to prove me right.


Letter for County Executive Elrich

Dear County Executive Elrich,

When you gave your inaugural address at the Strathmore Music Center in 2018, you promised to make Montgomery County a “more just society.” This promise fit in well with the mission statement of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) – a group that endorsed you, and that you proudly retweeted upon your victory – which says its goal is to “empower working people.”
