National Popular Vote Interstate Compact Resolution!!

National Popular Vote Interstate Compact

The Electoral College was established by the framers of the U.S. Constitution as a mechanism for the selection of the head of our Executive Branch of government. This system attempted to ease the control of the “hinterland” by the heavier populated urban areas of the nation. In many ways it has demonstrated success. However, critics have long complained that this system is unfair, insisting that the “popular vote” should determine the election winner.

Attempts to change the Electoral College have been pursued: substituting a split of the votes per state as opposed to “winner take all” or attempting to eliminate the Electoral College via constitutional amendment.

The latest attempt now being offered up is the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NVIC). This is an Agreement Among the States to Elect the President by National Popular Vote. Currently 15 States and the District of Columbia have adopted this agreement. This represents 72.6% of the needed 270 votes to select the President.

Newaygo County Republicans firmly reject the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and urge our State governmental leaders to do the same!

Resolution Adopted on August 1st, 2019- Internet-Public Commons or Private Company?

Google, which controls 92% of the internet search market, has U.S. authorities looking at them as a monopoly, needing antitrust intervention. Other major tech platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, have been openly criticized for employing monopolistic control over their content.
Project Veritas’ undercover sting revealed Google actively blocking political viewpoints, restricting access and prioritizing items presented in search requests. Much of this action is overt and many times subliminal. Regardless of the method, the purpose is to control opinion and direct political power. This display of information funneling is extremely troubling and is toxic to our 1st Amendment freedoms.

At issue is whether these Tech Companies are private and operate as “publishers” of content and opinion, the same as a newspaper?


Are these Tech Companies public commons that operate as “utilities”, presenting all information regardless of its content and recipients, the same as an electric utility?
Rep. John Reilly, Oakland Township, has introduced HB 4801. This bill would make it illegal to “censor, ban or shadow-ban”, or use other means to exercise viewpoint discrimination against users on the basis of the person’s political opinions.
Newaygo County Republicans support this measure and strongly confirm that full information must be provided to the public-absent editing and/or opinion of the internet provider.

Resolution adopted by the Newaygo County Republican Party on June 6, 2019

Mexico Tariff
The Trump Administration has implemented a new set of Tariffs which will be levied upon all products and services entering the USA from Mexico. This program will be implemented in a series of step percentages starting at 5% and increasing in 5% increments to 25%. Cash money transfers (remittances) leaving the USA to Mexico may also be addressed.
This action is being initiated by President Trump in response to the organized and well funded caravans of immigrants leaving Central America then crossing Mexican territory to seek "asylum" here in the United States. Hopefully, the Mexican Government will aggressively intervene and curtail this assault on our sovereignty.
It is unfortunate that the Washington swamp dwellers, deep state and the never Trumpers have employed every tool at their disposal to block or delay any attempt to secure our southern border. Court filings and lawsuits, funding blockages with congressional involvement and legislative inaction have forced this tariff dilemma.
Donald Trump took an oath to "protect and defend the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic". Donald Trump, as our president is pursuing this oath of office with total commitment. Any individual swearing this oath must join the fight or be electorally defeated, impeached from the court or jailed if convicted of this treasonous crime. The rest of us, including Newaygo County Republicans, must rise up and get behind President Trump.

Disaster Request Denied

Newaygo County experienced an extremely abnormal and devastating weather event on March 14th, 2019. Heavy rain on snow covered frozen ground resulted in extreme flooding throughout our county.
This immediately caused impassible roadways, damaged parks and wastewater facilities along with flooded homes. Governor Whitmer’s Administration immediately declared our county an emergency disaster.
Newaygo County lost 11 culverts and endured severe damage to 33 roads with a cost of upwards of $300,000!! The Newaygo County Road Commission spent 30% of its non-dedicated budget trying to cope with this weather impact.
With the Disaster Declaration in place our Road Commission turned to the state for help, requesting funds from the Disaster and Emergency fund. That request was DENIED!
After running with an explicit theme- “Fix the Damn Roads”, Governor Whitmer is demonstrating whose and what roads are important to her. Is our rural community insignificant to her political fortunes?
Newaygo County Republicans respectfully urge the Governor to reconsider our Road Commission’s request for emergency dollars to repair our roads.
Disasters are non-partisan as to who suffers and should be non-partisan as to who is helped.

Infanticide Resolution Passed by Newaygo County

Unanimous Support to Reject U.S. Senator’s Votes

Fremont, MI: (Immediate Release) The Newaygo County Republican Executive Committee unanimously rejected the infanticide vote taken in U.S. Senate regarding a bill (S 311) called the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”.
“Our Michigan Senators Peters and Stabenow each voted for infanticide” said, Diane Schindlbeck, Newaygo County Chair. “The ‘Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act’, voted against by each of Michigan’s two Democrat Senators, merely requires that a baby born alive after a failed abortion be afforded health care similar to any other child born alive at the same gestation age. Democrats who want ‘free health care for all’ somehow cannot provide any health care to an innocent survivor baby."
The Resolution (attached with this release) unanimously approved by the Committee states in part: “Newaygo County Republicans believe that the unborn deserve the protection of law and that killing via abortion is inhumane. But this vote is not about a woman's choice- it affirms infanticide.”
Schindlbeck (White Cloud) was recently elected to a two year term as Chair. She follows Michigan Senator Jon Bumstead (R - District 34). Schindlbeck is also founder of the West Michigan Republicans.

President Trump - Hold Fast and Build the Wall

Of our American government: to establish justice; to ensure domestic tranquility; to provide for the common defense.

All of these directives require a secure border.

Everyday illegal immigrants are crossing our borders. This is a blatant defiance of justice,when one enters our country illegally.

Tranquility is threatened when people enter without having been vetted for disease, criminal history, drug and or weapon possession.

Common defense is totally ineffective when our borders are ignored.

The President of the United States takes an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. President Donald J. Trump has correctly identified these illegal crossing as an imminent threat; securing our borders is a requirement, not an option.

The Newaygo County Republicans urge the President to hold fast, ignore the shutdown, and BUILD THE WALL.
