Trump Train Rolls into Montgomery County

The Trump Train rolled into Montgomery County and The Woodlands Friday afternoon, June 17th and wowed a Marriott Hotel ballroom standing only, capacity crowd of 6,000 while thousands of disappointed onlookers were unable to gain entrance. County Chairman Dr. Wally Wilkerson was one of the fortunate ones who gained entrance to the ballroom and witnessed the truly "electric" event. Wilkerson reported: "I came away from the event with renewed optimism that our candidate had a loyal, energetic following that would be voting and that he was capable of delivering a concise Republican message worthy of a presidential candidate. I realize some are having problems accepting Trump, but we should reminded that he was chosen our candidate, against a slate of impressive Republican candidates. I know many have heard me say over and over- There is no perfect candidate on this earth. As Republicans and conservatives, we need to support Donald Trump who will appoint conservative Justices unlike Justice Ginsberg, protect our freedoms, rebuild our military and defeat ISIS."

The County Headquarters has announced that signs and bumper stickers will be available at the Headquarters on or before August 1. Donations to offset expense of these items will be welcome. Call 936-441-5621 to confirm availability. Caps, buttons and etc. are available online at

  Mighty Texas Strike Force
White House and Keeping Congress Red 
are Top Priorities

The RNC's Grassroots Quarterly Newsletter reported: "The battle for control of the U.S. Congress is heating up." Republicans need to elect a President and maintain control of both the House and Senate, a governing majority, in order to enact our vision for an American policy agenda- "A BETTER WAY". "Democrats only need to gain 30 seats to recapture control of the U.S. House. In the Senate, Democrats only need to pick up four seats to regain control if they win the White House and five if we elect a Republican president. In the House, there are 44 seats in danger of being flipped from Republican to Democrat and 13 Districts where Republicans can pick up seats. Republicans are defending 13 open seats compared to 5 for the Democrats. There are 34 Senate seats up in 2016. Republicans are defending 24 seats compared to 10 for the Democrats. There are 10 races where Democrats are looking to pick up seats: Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, New Hampshire, N. Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania & Wisconsin. There are 2 seats that are viewed as possible Republican pick-ups: Colorado & Nevada." A loss of the House would mean a return of left-wing Democrat Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House and a loss of the Senate would most likely elevate liberal fire-brand New York Senator Chuck Schumer as Majority Leader. To ensure the Republican majorities in both the House & Senate are maintained and strengthened, the RNC has built the largest Get-Out-The-Vote operation "in our Party's history". Montgomery County Republicans, Independents and conservatives are urged to vote a straight Republican ticket in November to make sure Texas House members are re-elected.

Mighty Texas Strike Force

This year, we are going to fight to the finish line. In the famous words of William B. Travis at the Alamo, "we call on you in the name of liberty, of patriotism and everything dear to the American character, to come to our nation's aid, with all dispatch". We are volunteering with the Mighty Texas Strike Force, the grassroots conservative army that helped secure the 2000 and 2004 elections, who deployed thousands of volunteers across the nation to secure GOP victory. 

Join us as we deploy to the battleground states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin to make sure that Donald Trump and Mike Pence win in November 2016. Or, you can help right here in the Lone Star State in seven targeted areas: Dallas, Harris, Beaumont, Corpus Christi, El Paso, The Valley, and Cong. Will Hurd's 23rd Congressional District in San Antonio. Just take a moment to look at the
Mighty Texas Strike Force and, if you can, sign up to:
  • Deploy to a national battleground state or targeted area in Texas at your own expense either during Early Voting throughout October or, beginning October 28th thru Election Day, November 8th (we are hoping to raise scholarship funds for volunteers needing financial assistance-but there is no guarantee)

The Montgomery County Republican Party was proud that five residents of Montgomery County attended the National Republican Convention in Cleveland, OH as part of the Texas Delegation of 155 Delegates and Alternate Delegates. Three residents, Ann Kate, Steve Toth and Chuck Meyer were selected as Delegates, and two residents, Paul Edwards and Julie Faubel, were selected as Alternate Delegates at the May State Convention in Dallas during the 8th Congressional District Caucus and the State Nomination Committee Caucus. The Delegates were bound by Party rules to cast votes according the March Primary results on the first roll call ballot for the Republican nomination for President. A majority vote of 1,237 was required to be declared the nominee. On July 19, Donald J. Trump received well over the amount of Delegates required to be declared the Republican nominee for president.
Delegate Ann Kate was photographed and quoted in the HOUSTON CHRONICLE on July 20 regarding the flap over the charge of plagiarism in Melania Trump's speech. Kate said: "The controversy is ridiculous. Even if the words were close to what the first lady said, so what. Her speech seemed to be from the heart. I'm a Republican, sure, but I don't see this as an issue." Congratulations to Ann, a member of the North Shore Republican Women and a Precinct #72 Chairman. You made us proud!
Speaker Ryan Announces A Better Way 
Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan introduced A BETTER WAY, a policy agenda for Republicans, with these comments: "Our nation is on the wrong path. We can complain about it, but that won't change things. To get America back on track, we have to raise our gaze. We have to go bold. That's what A BETTER WAY is about. It is a full slate of ideas to address some of the biggest challenges of our time. Developed with input from around the country, it looks past this president (Obama) to what we can achieve in 2017 & beyond. It is our vision for a confident America, at home and abroad. It is a clear and compelling choice for our future." It consists of six sections- A Better Way to Keep Us Safe and Free, A Better Way to Grow Our Economy, A Better Way for Tax Reform, A Better Way to Do the People's Business, A Better Way to Fight Poverty and A Better Way to Fix Health Care. A summary of each section is available online at A limited supply of copies is available in the County Republican Headquarters at 310 Metcalf Street, Conroe, TX 77301-2856. Call 936-441-5621 or Congressman Kevin Brady's office at 936-441-5700 with any questions about A BETTER WAY.

  U.S. Supreme Court
Impartial Supreme Court?
The Supreme Court has taken a big hit with the death of Justice Scalia and the controversy over filling this vacancy along with recent controversial decisions. There has been an eroding of trust in the Court and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg fueled a political fire when she chose to comment on the presidential contest and violate the code of conduct for U.S. Judges which forbids Judges from publicly endorsing or opposing a candidate. The code also prohibits a Judge from making speeches or contributing to a candidate. Ginsberg has been quoted as saying: "I can't imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president. I don't even want to contemplate that".
In an editorial the Chicago Tribune wrote; "To say her public comments are unusual is like saying dancing cows are scarce. Supreme Court Justices don't- at least until now- take public stands on presidential or other elections". If Hillary Clinton should be elected, the Court would be stacked with Justices like Ginsberg. And the Justices will render opinions based primarily on their political leanings. The Tribune continued: "Nowhere is impartiality more important than in the highest court in the land, which has the final word on a host of grave questions .For Justices to descend into partisan election campaigns would undermine public faith in their willingness to assess each case strictly on its legal merits." A Republican president must be elected to guarantee a non-partisan court.

  Democrats Propose More Big Government

"The Democrats Want to 'Invest' Big in Big Government", according to an editorial in INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY. Their draft platform described what their Party stands for-- bigger government. Democrats changed the word "spend" to "invest" in the plan. The word invest appears more than 45 times in the platform. They were not talking about "private investments". "After all, who could be opposed to the government making investments", the editorial concludes. The word "spending" only appears three times. The only part of big government where Democrats want to reduce investments or spending is prisons. They plan to pay for their progressive investments without adding to the 19 trillion dollar debt at the expense of large corporations who must pay their "fair share". Democrats believe the only way to grow the economy is to take more money from businesses and hand it over to unaccountable bureaucrats and political hacks. "Slapping new labels on these dusty old policies won't make them any more effective" the editorial predicts.
As of August 15, 2016, the U.S. debt is $19,425,000,000,000+.
