Thank you for sending me to the 41st NFRW Convention in Orlando, Florida. Below are a few highlights:

Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida welcomed us to Florida by saying Never Give UP!

He kept Florida open during the pandemic. In addition to suing Joe Biden over Border control and critical race theory, he’s bringing back American Civics to schools.

Kat Cammack, the youngest Republican woman at 33-years-old, proudly serves Florida’s 3rd Congressional District. She’s a strong representative of PRO-LIFE since she survived almost being aborted. Sadly, she said, “Republican colleagues are afraid to stand for LIFE. They have forgotten Republicans are the only Party that represent the unborn.” 

Kristi Noem, South Dakota's first female Governor, proudly kept her State opened. Her leadership guided by God and family produced initiatives protecting down syndrome children from being aborted and established 230 foster homes for abandoned children.

Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas showcased a white beard and mustache. He humorously shared, because our economy is being ruined by the current administration, he’s playing Santa Clause during Christmas.

California we should be proud look at all our Awards we earned:

Betty Heitman Award for State Excellence.

1st Place Trophy Winner-Public Relations recipient of the Traveling Golden Eagle Trophy

Most Volunteer Hours - 2 million+

State Member with Most Volunteer Hours – Joy Miedecke

Club Membership Award– 1st Place Numerical & % Increase, El Dorado Hills RWF          

California Achieved 100% of membership by June 25, 2021

Club Achievement Awards submitted - 116 out of 132 clubs

In the future, if given the opportunity, I encourage you to attend and have fun with like-minded women while gaining valuable information to further our cause.

The Rise of Socialism:

Education in the USA, Part I

Our Founding Fathers agreed that education based on truth, freedom, and godly principles is essential to the preservation of our Republic. In a letter in 1779, Samuel Adams echoed this sentiment. “If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslaved. This is their greatest security.”

To better understand the rise of socialism/communism in the USA and its attempt to enter American education and erode the principles on which our country’s founded, knowledge of events in England after the death of Karl Marx is essential. Marx, a refugee from Germany and an outcast from France because of his radical, godless economic ideas, found refuge and sympathizers in England at the end of his life. He wrote most of Das Kapital during his studies at a London library.

The year after his death in 1884, a group of English elitists formed the Fabian Society. Discarding the Marxist idea of violent revolution by the working class, these mostly wealthy and influential intellectuals espoused a non-violent takeover for socialism/communism—to infect the minds of men indirectly though stealth. They would use their wealth and influence in the arts, politics, economics, and education.  A wolf in sheep’s clothing became its coat of arms, (later discarded as too overt). Deceit would be its motto as inspired by the ancient Roman general, Quintus Fabius Maximus, who overcame Hannibal in the Second Punic War, not by direct combat but by an indirect, covert method. A slow permeation into the culture would be their main tactic, not a confrontational, direct approach. Its logo was the tortoise, representing an almost imperceptible transition to socialism, called “creeping change” or “creeping socialism.”

Fueled by Marx’s writings, these socialist/communist ideas gradually reached across the ocean to America. A branch of the Fabian Society immigrated to our shores in 1895, coming in through Rev. Bliss of a Congregational Church in Boston in the guise of Christian Socialism. As it had in England, intellectual elitists joined its ranks, including American writers, Upton Sinclair and Jack London, and the “progressive” John Dewey, founder of our modern educational system. How these and others have contributed to this mostly silent attempt at a cultural revolution, affecting education and other aspects of life in the USA, will be addressed in the next month’s article, Part II. These American Fabians and other like-minded individuals have been working hard behind the scenes to try and change the direction and values of our country.

Texas Voting Bill

Gov. Greg Abbott Signs Texas Voting Bill Into Law

Though delayed by Democratic quorum breaks, Texas has officially joined the slate of Republican states that have enacted new voting restrictions following the 2020 election. Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday signed into law Senate Bill 1, sweeping legislation that further tightens state election laws and constrains local control of elections by limiting counties’ ability to expand voting options. The governor’s signature ends months of legislative clashes and standoffs during which Democrats — propelled by concerns that the legislation raises new barriers for marginalized voters — forced Republicans into two extra legislative sessions.

SB 1 is set to take effect three months after the special legislative session, in time for the 2022 primary elections. While SB 1 makes some changes that could expand access — namely increasing early voting hours in smaller, mostly Republican counties — the new law otherwise restricts how and when voters cast ballots. It specifically targets voting initiatives used by diverse, Democratic Harris County, the state’s most populous, by banning overnight early voting hours and drive-thru voting — both of which proved popular among voters of color last year.

The new law also will ratchet up voting-by-mail rules in a state where the option is already significantly limited, give partisan poll watchers increased autonomy inside polling places by granting them free movement, and set new rules — and criminal penalties — for voter assistance. It also makes it a state jail felony for local election officials to proactively distribute applications for mail-in ballots, even if they are providing them to voters who automatically qualify to vote by mail or groups helping get out the vote.
