2022 News & Press
We are pleased that the Ethics Commission decided today to fine Brett Smiley for his pay to play fundraising tactics and to investigate Tony Silva for hiding his financial interest in wetlands property. Slimy Smiley used his power over state vendors to fund his political ambitions. Sneaky Silva hid his financial interest in wetlands from the public while behind the scenes he pushed government officials to support his moneymaking scheme. Both of these former chiefs of staff to a governor exemplify Rhode Island’s unethical insider political culture. While we are happy that the Ethics Commission is holding these men accountable for their unethical conduct, it is sad that former Governor Raimondo and current Governor McKee were so willing to entrust these men with power in the first place.
With House Resolution (H.R.) 1/Senate (S.)1 failing, Democrats have shifted their focus to pass H.R. 4. H.R. 4 is yet another attempt to take over our federal elections. Elections belong to the States…so says the Constitution. This election suppression act is designed to thwart election integrity, manipulate state redistricting decisions, and slant elections in an effort to help Democrats win. Couple this with the damage already caused by Mail-in ballots, and our future elections are in significant trouble. Once federalized, you will have no voice in your LOCAL RI ELECTIONS…NONE!
Help the RIGOP STOP THIS MADNESS!
Help us elect a REPUBLICAN Governor, Lt. Governor, and Attorney General...REPUBLICAN State Representatives and Senators...who’ll fight for YOUR rights to keep elections SAFE, SECURE, FREE, and FAIR, and retain their control in RHODE ISLAND, not WASHINGTON D.C. We NEED YOUR HELP!
As we prepare for 2022, we need all hands on deck to help turn Rhode Island RED and force a Republican wave to TAKE CONTROL of the Rhode Island State House and the Executive.
Based on voter enthusiasm and numbers of votes cast from the last election, we KNOW we can do it, but we'll need your help.
"As a parent, our most important responsibility is to raise good kids, and protect them as best we can, from the evils that surround them while growing up. Critical Race Theory is one such evil. It is an attempt by the left to divide our country against itself. In traditional Marxism, this was done through class. With CRT, race is used. CRT is a lie perpetuated by the left to get schools to trade the hearts, souls, and minds of our kids for political gain….with schools and other woke, self-loathing whites and rich blacks being the “Useful Idiots” in this example. Those who feel the ruling class is on their side will eventually find out that it is not. CRT distorts history, in essence, billing white people for events of some 150+ years ago, while making all of our kids; white, black, brown, yellow, and red, write the check, not with money but with their hearts, minds, and souls.
We will not allow it.
CRT and its proponents teach our kids that accountability, hard work, grit, and tenacity are non-factors in the success or failure of a person…that race is the only determining factor…that people of color are systematically oppressed by white people in all phases of our society. Kids of color are taught that, since the deck is so stacked against them, it is fruitless to try and get ahead on one’s own…It is a cyclical self-fulfilling prophecy, where many young black kids remain in the cycle of poverty because those whom their parents and grandparents have trusted for decades tell them that’s where they belong. CRT teaches kids of color that the only way they can achieve excellence is with artificially-engineered, equitable outcomes…that they don’t have what it takes to succeed on their own. We all know this is garbage and it is poison. It is also un-American, and it is insulting.
The chaos in Afghanistan makes clear what we all already knew: Joe Biden is incapable to lead and we are less safe because of him. This isn’t conjecture, but proven fact – through his administration’s decisive inaction, inexperience, and poor choices.
Biden said “…the buck stops with him”, yet has proceeded to blame everyone else for the chaos in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, the chaos in Afghanistan is a direct result of Joe Biden’s failed policies and lack thereof (or simply poor) decision making. As a result, the Taliban is now dictating terms to the United States of America – and Joe Biden is letting them get away with it. Even the White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, admitted that the successful evacuation of Americans depends on the Taliban’s cooperation.
Advancing the model they set leading up to, during, and following the November, 2020 elections, the RNC continues its Constitutionally-supported legal challenges and robust financial investments in America's pursuit of Election Integrity. The RNC is focused on FREE, SAFE, LEGAL, TRANSPARENT, and FAIR elections for every voter and is leading the fight to ensure that voter confidence in our election systems returns. We are currently involved in 19 lawsuits across America to right the wrongs that so many of our fellow Citizens encountered during the entire 2020 Election Cycle. Every day, more 'evidence' is being uncovered and the RNC is moving litigation forward to challenge wrong-doing, hold those responsible accountable for their actions, and safeguarding our most sacred right...OUR VOTE!
There have been recent news reports on Governor Dan McKee’s cancelation of a fundraiser hosted by Gerry Zarrella, former honorary co-chairman of the Trump’s Rhode Island campaign.
The R.I. Republican Party has the following comments:
“Let’s start out by saying what everybody knows: Governor Dan McKee is weak.
For weeks, McKee and his staff have known about Gerry Zarrella’s involvement in the fundraising event. It was only after the event was reported by the media that McKee decided to cancel the event and in the process, vilify someone who had supported President Trump. McKee did this because he is afraid of his party’s left wing and worried about losing a primary. Instead of trying to govern from the center and appeal to moderates, he is moving left. The problem for McKee is that he will never win over the left in the primary. The left will be voting for progressives like Magaziner or Elorza in the gubernatorial primary, not him.
