Update on County Executive Marc Elrich

By Dennis Melby

It’s a well-known fact that change doesn’t happen overnight.

So, first things first: Our Concerned Citizens rally on September 13, 2019 raised awareness about our fight to end Montgomery County’s non-cooperation with ICE and protect our families and children from illegal immigrant criminals preying not only the immigrant community but society at large.

Then came the petition to rescind the order for all Montgomery County agencies to not cooperate with ICE, and the terrible national press coverage on further efforts to make Montgomery County a sanctuary county

Finally . . . . at last …… County Executive Mark Elrich actually opened up a little and focused bit by bit on the fiasco he had created.

Republicans, Women and Progress

By Sharon Bauer

Montgomery County, like most of America, is lucky to have a vast network of Republican Women’s organizations.  Many have said that the women’s groups have been the backbone of the party here for many years.  And next year is the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment recognizing the right to vote for all, regardless of gender.

Censorship is Alive and Well in Montgomery County

By Hessie Harris

The reasons offered by Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich for banning the public display of the thin blue line flag are baseless. He stated that he was responding to the fact that the flag had been adopted by Blue Lives Matter, which was established in response to Black Lives Matter. Given that Black Lives Matter did not invent the English language, there is no patent at issue here.

What Should We Be Doing Now?

Asked What Should We be Doing Now?  My answer:  Get the President Re-elected!
by Ann Corcoran

Please give me specifics, she said

I've been noticing an increase in the number of readers who want more information on how they can actually fight back against a tide of, for lack of a better description, progressive political activity including election victories by the Open Borders Left intent on changing America by changing the people.

First and foremost, remember they have been working away at their progressive agenda for years, for decades!  Community organizing is in their DNA!

Trump Victory Team Kickoff a Big Success

By Deborah Lambert

On Sunday afternoon, November 3rd, nearly 60 Trump supporters gathered at the Montgomery County GOP headquarters to show their support for our president and enjoy each others’ company on a very special day – which was exactly 365 days before the 2020 re-election of President Trump.

Josephine Wang, our nominee as the Montgomery County Trump Victory Team Chair, organized the event and provided a lineup of GOP notables to kick off the year-long campaign to re-elect our president to another four-year term.

It is time to End Maryland’s Costly Tax Incentive Programs

By Carol Park

Recently, James Hohman and I argued that Maryland should stop using special tax incentives to encourage specific businesses to enter or expand in Maryland, and instead adopt broad business tax reform that would help all Maryland businesses. A new audit report of the Maryland Department of Commerce reinforces our argument.

Conservatives Need Safe Spaces Too!

By Sharon Begosh 

About 15 years ago, I started noticing a change in the world around me. It started out very subtly: a movie with an obvious liberal slant – the media, schools, government and even churches pushing social justice themes whenever they could slip them in without ruffling too many feathers. But this insidious march toward an unremitting takeover of our social fabric and American culture was never obstructed or even mildly opposed.

As with most things in life, the reasons for the success of this situation were multi-faceted. Conservatives by nature are respectful of individuality and others’ opinions. We are the true advocates of “coexist.” Therefore, even after this gradual takeover had taken root, we didn’t feel it was our place to marginalize their personal expression. Also, since the newly emerging culture started interpreting anything that could even be marginally critical of minorities as racist, it slowly became the law of the land. This put an almost total halt to any resistance to the takeover of our culture. 

Now fast forward to the present.
