AMERICA FIRST, AMERICA FOREVER
The Polk County Republican Party is an engaged Party.  We’re committed to fighting  for the principles and values that are fundamental to American tradition.  We honor our founding fathers and our sacred founding documents.  We respect the rights of all persons …the inalienable rights  bestowed  by God Almighty upon everyone and the rights explicitly written into our Constitution. 

The People’s authority is supreme.  Government exists only to carry out the will of the People and protect the people from injustice.   

We find ourselves today at extreme odds with our government.  The federal government is running a ‘human trafficking’ operation that threatens every person in the United States.  The U.S. Dept of Injustice has become a ‘criminal enterprise’ attacking parents and ordinary citizens with brute force for simply exercising their constitutional rights. Federal tyranny is at its highest level ever.  

At the state level, in Raleigh, despite the hard work of Republicans in the General Assembly, the will of the People has been denied repeatedly by activist judges and the Governor is clearly dishonorable and unwilling to govern responsibly.  

And how about here at home? 

Polk County government.  The government closest to the People.  Is our local government serving the people, protecting the people, speaking out against injustice? In next week’s newsletter, we’ll be asking that question.  We invite you to come to our meetings on Thursday evenings and join the conversation. Starting in June, our meetings will be monthly, the 2nd Thursday of the month.

This is our continuing series … citing criminal ‘charges’ against a sitting President. We, The People, of these United States of America, declare that Joseph Robinette Biden Jr, 46th President of the United States, is GUILTY of crimes against America.  
COUNT 2:     Weaponizing Federal Agencies against the People
 Attorney General Merrick Garland on Oct. 4 announced a concerted effort to target any threats of violence, intimidation, and harassment by parents directed toward school board members, teachers, and other personnel.  

The announcement comes days after a national association of school boards asked the Biden administration to take “extraordinary measures” to prevent alleged threats against school staff that the association said were coming from parents who oppose mask mandates and the teaching of critical race theory. 

According to the DOJ, further efforts will be rolled out in days, including a task force that will determine how to use federal resources to prosecute offending parents, as well as how to advise state entities on prosecutions in cases where no federal law is broken.

The Justice Department will also provide training to school staff on how to report threats from parents and preserve evidence to aid in investigation and prosecution.

The task force, which is set to include representatives from the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, National Security Division, Civil Rights Division, the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, the FBI and more, will determine how federal enforcement tools can be used to prosecute the threats and crimes, and ways to assist state and local law enforcement where threats of violence may not constitute federal crimes
