The Daily Signal – “I felt like I had been punched in the stomach. I was just gasping for air.”
That’s how Nancy Rost recalls the moments after her husband, Tom, walked through the door of their home six years ago this month.
In his hand, Tom held a letter from a longtime employee. On his face, the easy confidence Nancy had seen from Tom every day since they met each other as children was missing, replaced by a palpable sense of anxiety.
Immediately, Tom and Nancy knew that the contents of the letter had the potential to devastate R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, which Tom’s grandfather had established in 1910 to serve grieving families throughout Detroit.
The liberal Left continue to push their radical agenda against American values. The good news is there is a solution. Find out more >>
As it stands now, Tom’s five-generation family business is in the hands of the Supreme Court, with oral arguments scheduled for Oct. 8.
No doubt, his case will have sweeping implications across American life.

The New American – A bill making its way through the Texas state legislature would create a committee tasked with reviewing the constitutionality of federal laws, regulations, executive orders, federal court decisions, and treaties. Confirmation of unconstitutionality by the state legislature would prohibit state enforcement of the federal action in question.
The language of HB 1347 would create the Joint Legislative Committee on Constitutional Enforcement. The 12-person committee would “review federal actions that challenge the sovereignty of the state and of the people for the purpose of determining if the federal action is unconstitutional.”
The first few paragraphs of the bill lay out a historically correct description of the manner in which the federal government was created, including the purpose for its creation.
Put simply, the states created the federal government, set the boundaries of its power, and reserved to themselves all other rights not specifically delegated to the new federal authority. The contract containing the rights and responsibilities of the parties to this contract that created the federal government is called the Constitution. This act of collective consenting is called a compact. To read more click
The New American – Judge James L. Buckley holds the rare distinction of having served in all three branches of the federal government. Even rarer among one who has spent nearly five decades in the federal government — and perhaps because of that time and experience — Buckley believes it is time to return to constitutional adherence if America wishes to preserve liberty.
Buckley served as a U.S. senator from New York from 1971 to 1977, then, in the first Reagan administration, as undersecretary of state for international security affairs from February 1981 to August 1982 and as president of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty from 1982 to 1985, before being appointed as a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 1985. Since 1996, he has served as the senior judge of that court.
Judge Buckley recently gave an address to the National Review Institute Ideas Summit on the case for federalism and “safeguarding the American experiment” by restraining the federal government. In that speech, Buckley — who is 96 years old — said, “In my view, the serious problems we face these days are in major part the result of our abandonment of the Constitution’s limits on federal authority.” To read more click
For those of you not familiar with this event, it is our time to honor the volunteers that are the backbone of the 11th Congressional District Republican Party. Without the countless, dedicated, often tireless volunteers we would not have a majority in Raleigh, 2 Republican Senators (remember Kavanaugh!!), Lt. Gov. Forest, and we certainly would not have our dynamic Congressman, Mark Meadows.
This year, the banquet will be on Saturday, May 11th, at Lake Junaluska in the beautiful Harrell Center. The event will begin at 11:30.
A volunteer from each County will be recognized for their service and presented with an award.

Stop the Unconstitutional Federal Takeover of Elections
H.R. 1, a bill sponsored by Representative John Sarbanes (D-Md.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has already passed in the House of Representatives by 234-193 on March 8 and has been read in the Senate. The title of the bill is “For the People Act of 2019,” but a more accurate name for the bill might be “The Federal Takeover of Elections Act of 2019.” This bill includes components that, while being portrayed as making voting easier on Americans, are not only going to lead to corruption but to an unconstitutional takeover of elections by the federal government.
To learn more about why H.R. 1 would be so dangerous to our constitutionally mandated state control of elections, read “HR 1: Blueprint for an Electoral Takeover” (posted at TheNewAmerican.com on April 22).
Please phone your Senators (202-224-3121) and ask them to vote NO on H.R. 1, because it would enable an unconstitutional federal takeover of congressional elections. Use the information in “HR 1: Blueprint for an Electoral Takeover” (linked to in the previous paragraph) for additional talking points, if desired.
