You Can Call February Republican Month

It’s Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, Frederick Douglass’ birthday, and the month our great friend President Gerald Ford named February Black History Month. Add in Ronald Reagan’s birthday and it makes it a very special month.

To honor this, former Chairman Dennis Melby donated some memorable artwork to our local Republican Headquarters, great pictures of some of our Party founders. Committee Members Jamie Greedan and Matt Johnson were there to accept.

We'll post them in a place of honor. The next time you're there for a seminar, to pick up literature or chat  make sure you check them out.

Andy Harris Should Not Resign - An Open Letter

Dear Maryland House of Delegates,

I was so sorry to see your name on the letter to Congressman Andrew  Harris calling him to resign.  This correspondence is to let you know how very disappointed I and your other LD 17 constituents are in your decision to call for Congressman Andrew Harris to resign.  We are concerned that your call demonstrates a lack of appreciation for the First Amendment and failure to respect those who have diverse opinions.

About The MoCo Conservative

There is a clear lack of diversity of thought in the D.C. Metro Area. The advent of technology has made the cancel culture mob even more vengeful as Democrat operatives order their minions and tech soldiers to dig through social media accounts of suspected free thinkers and conservatives.

Black Mothers Speak Out

By Ann Guthrie Hingston

While a Black death at the hands of police is the subject of national outrage, the numerous Black deaths that occur every day in our communities are ignored. The victims are often children, and their mothers are seldom given a platform to voice their opinions.
