2021 MN CD4 Convention Friday March 19th

Minnesota Congressional District 4 is having a it’s Convention on FRIDAY evening March 19th. It is hopefully the last Zoom Convention Republicans have to socially distance themselves.  Networking with people from all around the Congressional District and from outside it to include non-partisan groups has been missed. It’s not really the same as in previous years, though we’ve learned some new skills because of the shared experience of the last year.

The CD4 Convention should be exciting as at least two of our Delegates, and newly elected Vice Chairs Mikki Murray and Sara Rasque-Michener are running for Executive Positions at the Convention. Mikki Murray is running for re-election as CD4 Chair. Sara Rasque-Michener is running to be the CD4 State Executive. Both in their efforts in the last 2 years have increased participation in St Paul despite last year being a pandemic year. We wish them good luck.

If you are not a HD 66B Republican Delegates or Alternate feel free to register as a guest, which is $20. We have separate Delegate & Alternate slates to CD4 & State Conventions to increase participation. We’re one of the few BPOUs in the State that does this.


Disclaimer: HD 66B Republicans do not receive any portion of the $20 or PCR money given to the CD4 Republicans. If you want to give  your PCR please consider giving it to HD 66B Republicans, keep it local.

Please Do Not Go to the MN Capitol Building January 16-17 nor for Inauguration Day

To All Republicans and DFLers who live in Minnesota House District 66B:

Please do not go to the MN Capitol Building this weekend January 16-17, nor for the Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021.  It is a very emotional time in the history of the United States of America. Tempers may flare and people may do actions they will live to regret.  For your safety and your health please stay away from the MN Capitol Building and it’s grounds and stay at home.

Many Republicans and some DFLers believe there were election irregularities in the November Election and also in the Georgia Run-offs.  There has been no explanation of why the Minnesota State Voter Registration System (SVRS) crashed on Halloween 2020, and what effect it had on the outcome of the General Election in the state of Minnesota. Also alleged reports of Rep Ilhan Omar’s Get Out the Vote efforts in Congressional District 5 seem highly illegal.

People are wondering why these instances in the State of Minnesota have been ignored by leaders in our State and Federal Government, as well as vote changing by Smartmatic on Dominion Vote Counting machines in foreign countries.  So it is really understandable to want to get someone to actually listen to you when you don’t think they care.

All those who love freedom of speech and the right to assemble with those that are like minded, or want to worship in the manner they choose need to implore our leaders in the Federal, State, local Governments, and in businesses to respect people’s 1st Amendment Rights.  As a US Army Soldier some decades ago I defended your Rights in the Bill of Rights.  Whether we agree or disagree these are sacred rights. To take that right away from others is to subject them to oppression for doing nothing to deserve it.

Violence is not the answer. It leads to more problems and it doesn’t solve the current problems.  We are told we need to petition the government to address our grievances, and this is what we implore you to do. Contact your US Representatives to let them hear your concerns. Sure our MN CD4 Representative in Washington DC is Career Politician Betty McCollum and she doesn’t seem to care but if you don’t let her know how upset you are she will do what she always does and be a rubber stamp for what her Democrat handlers tell her to do. And please keep it civil when you contact her.

The other activity you can do is to pray for our country, and the leaders to do what is right in the US Constitution and to listen to the Truth, not manufactured truth.

Be well and God Bless you and God Bless America

Help Save Lives Dig Out St Paul Fire Hydrants

We never get tired of this video below.  Okay it is a little bit corny but the message of cleaning off the nearest fire hydrant to your house is an important one.  Time is of the essence when the nearest Ladder Company of the St Paul’s Bravest show up to put out a fire.  Let us say that again, Time is very important to saving lives in a fire.  If a firefighter has to waste time digging a hydrant out of a snow bank, your loved one, or your pets, or your neighbors, and their pets could die.

You can take turns with your neighbor over who gets to do the honor of Digging out the Hydrant.


This article was re-posted by permission of Saintpaulrepublicans.us.  It was published on December 16, 2017.  I used to shovel sidewalks for extra cash during the winter, and I always used to shovel the hydrants free of snow near the clients I had.  ~~ Publius Jr.

 

2020 Booya Schedule

Booya is a hearty stew cooked up in large cauldrons for fundraisers

Excerpts of  Jess Fleming’s article was Published on September 9, 2020


Social and Political Distancing could not keep the local tradition of holding a Booya from being offered this year, come rain, snow, sleet, or shine, or pandemic.

Booya might mean something to another part of the country but in the Upper Midwest it means a thick stew that is mixed and cooked up in a giant vat, or 55 gallon drum and served at non-profits and churches by the bowl until it’s gone.


Jess Fleming posts, “We do have a very notable newcomer this year in Saint Paul Brewing (688 E. Minnehaha Ave., St. Paul; 651-698-1945; stpaulbrewing.com) Map HD67B, which will be serving booya from 3 p.m. until close on Thursday nights, starting Sept. 17. If you haven’t been to the brewery, it was recently taken over by the owners of Can Can Wonderland and the previously primitive patio transformed into something that can best be described as an art park with lots of seating and beer, of course. They also serve really good wood fired pizzas.

If your organization is holding a Booya, please send your information to eat@pioneerpress.com, and Jess Fleming will add it to their list.

While Booyas are not political in nature, we’ll add an extra notation of what Minnesota House District each Booya is located in case your House District group wants to meet there.
