BORN ALIVE ABORTION SURVIVORS PROTECTION ACT

PRESS RELEASE

FRESNO, CA –This past Monday, the United States Senate rejected the ‘Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act’ bill which would have guaranteed medical care to babies who survive an abortion and are born alive. All No votes were cast by Democrats including all 2020 Democrat Presidential candidates as well as Independent Bernie Sanders. Never in American history has a major political party voted to support infanticide – the killing of babies who are born alive.

Fresno County Republican Party Chairman, Fred Vanderhoof, stated that, “This is a shocking travesty, abortion is horrendous, and now the next barbaric step, refusing to care for a newborn once it survives an abortion, is unthinkable. The value of life transcends politics and is the foundation of our great Nation which supports the sacredness of human life. The Fresno County Republican Party reaffirms its commitment to the dignity and worth of the weakest members of our society.”

FCRCC AUGSUT 2018 NEWSLETTER

A WORD FROM OUR CHAIRMAN

FRED VANDERHOOF

Dear Fellow Republicans,


As we spend time with family and friends during this summer season, we can be especially thankful for all the accomplishments of President Trump! There is no denying that our President loves our country, has a plan and follows it. Since he is an accomplished businessman and new to D.C. politics, he has a unique style unlike any other political leader. Donald Trump combines the energy of Teddy Roosevelt, the bluntness of Harry Truman and the conservatism of Ronald Reagan. It is astounding to see how much and how quickly one man with a vision can accomplish.


The Left has descended into violence, anarchy and socialism. Indeed, Tom Perez, the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, recently stated that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, an avowed socialist, is the future of the Democrat Party. Recently, she won the Democrat primary in a New York congressional seat. Locally and nationally the Democrats demand more power and create an atmosphere of chaos that denigrates our traditional institutions and attacks those with whom they disagree. They consider the Constitution outdated and irrelevant. The freedom of religion and speech, as well as our other rights are all at risk in this hostile environment. However, we must stand firm for our Republican values and be directly involved in getting people out to vote.

President Trump has shown the way to win an election. Speak plainly, work harder than the other candidate, and go to every community, every demographic and ask for their vote.


Many polls show that there are Democrats and Independents who are very unsatisfied with the Leftist direction of the current Democratic leadership and many of these may swing their votes our direction! As we prepare for the mid-term elections in November the single most important thing we can do is personally recruit neighborhood captains who will help us get-out-the-vote. We can influence more people to vote by finding like-minded individuals to contact their neighbors.


Please see more information below about this highly important effort. It will be very effective if we multiply our efforts by becoming precinct captains and recruiting others to do the same!



 

VOLUNTEER AND LEAD! LET’S ALL MAKE CALIFORNIA GREAT AGAIN!

Neighborhood Captains Needed!

 

The cornerstone of our successful Get-Out-The-Vote efforts is the Neighborhood (Precinct) Captain. Neighborhood Captains help increase voter turnout within their own voting precinct. The responsibilities of a Neighborhood Captains include walking their own voting precinct to distribute the Republican Party’s voting recommendations as well as making phone calls on election night. It is important we have as many Neighborhood Captains as possible leading up to this November 2018 election. Please consider volunteering for this today and encouraging friends and family to do the same. Email the Get Out The Vote Committee at fresnogotv@nym.hush.com. Thank you!

LINCOLN REAGAN DINNER 

WHAT A NIGHT!


 

On Thursday, May 31, 2018, the FCRCC held its annual Lincoln Reagan Dinner at TorNino’s Banquet Hall in Fresno. What a night it was!! The atmosphere sparkled with red, white and blue décor. Dinner guests were busy socializing before the event awaiting, eagerly, what was to come. The keynote speaker was Herman Cain. Ray Appleton received a Life Time Achievement award and it was presented to him by Sheriff Margaret Mimms. State and local candidates were in attendance and were asked to say a few words in support of their campaigns. Emcee, Mayor Bob Whalen of Clovis was entertaining and made sure everything ran on time. 


Herman Cain’s presentation was outstanding and it captured everyone’s attention right from the very beginning. He spoke about his humble beginnings such as his childhood, from where he came, his college years and his goals when he first started working. He mentioned some obstacles he encountered and how he overcame them and then succeeded. He spoke in support of President Trump, how good he is doing, how he agrees with his decisions and gave a comforting message stating “Things will be alright.” As Mr. Cain continued to speak, his enthusiasm and natural leadership presented itself in the most dynamic way. The crowd responded by shouting out supportive cheers, gave continuous applause and several standing ovations. The excitement was intense, hope was very much alive, it solidified the importance of Republican beliefs and values. When the event ended, the excitement was still present and people clambered to meet him and take pictures while others remarked on his incredible presentation. It was a night to remember.

Frank Esquivil

Every committee has to work together as a cohesive group in order to accomplish goals. Our Central
Committee is no different. We have been fortunate to have had Frank Esquivil as a District 5 committee member and later, as an Executive Board member. His tenure was not long enough, but Frank’s impact on the Committee was evident and appreciated. Many of you enjoyed Frank’s easy-going demeanor, reasonable voice and thoughtfulness. Service is the cornerstone of Frank’s life. Frank is a local who grew up in Fresno
with 3 brothers & 2 sisters. He attended Memorial HS and Fresno State. He was a DA Investigator
working Welfare Fraud, Child Support and the Special Activities Unit entry team for search warrants.
Frank was a Social Worker for 10 years and FPD volunteer reserve officer which rounded out his
County career of over 40 years.

 

Frank & Debra have been married since 2006. Together they enjoy roses, Charlie & Cody (their
Dalmatians), trans-Atlantic cruises and wine tasting – especially Napa & Paso Robles.
Frank is a Master Gardener and a member of the Rose Society. He is a rabid Giants fan and takes great
delight in insulting, I mean teasing, his Dodger friends in person & on FB! He attends the Newman
Center where he has been an usher, helped with donations and landscaping. Frank is flexible but has a daily
routine that includes mass, breakfast out and visiting his mom who now lives at the
Armenian Home. Music is his passion! He has been known to travel near and far for Alan Parsons,
Jethro Tull and any progressive rock group of the 70’s.

 

Progressive rock is the only kind of progressive you will hear associated with Frank today. He is a Constitutional conservative who decided he had to make the change from Democrat to Republican as a result of the Clinton-Lewinsky affair. He said the brutalization of Monica and her friend Linda Tripp was the last straw from a party who said they championed women, but in fact, too often demonized them. He was one of the original “Walk Away” democrats!

 

We are glad to have had Frank on our Central Committee through our Lincoln Reagan Dinners, 2nd
Amendment BBQ’s – especially the Sheriff Arpaio BBQ where his endless security and law enforcement
contacts came in handy.

 

There is not a person he meets that he does not have a 6 degrees of separation contact. His Memorial
and county friends are endless and have lasted the test of time. He is a friend who sat in the City Hall
chambers with 3 of us until midnight awaiting a vote that went our way! He is a gentleman and a scholar. He
reads and investigates to get to the truth, not just believing what the media reports. We miss Frank
already, but are comforted knowing that he will continue his service in Madera in the latest chapter of
his ongoing zest for truth, justice and the American way!!!

“I voted against the gas and car tax hikes and I personally signed the petition to repeal it,” stated Vidak. “This regressive tax is hurting local family budgets and has resulted in Californians paying the highest gas prices in the continental United States.”

Fresno County Republican Party Chairman Calls on Fresno State University to Fire Randa Jarrar

The Chairman of the Fresno County Republican Party, Fred Vanderhoof, said today that Fresno State University should immediately begin the process to fire Randa Jarrar.

“It is outrageous that a teacher who serves in a position of responsibility and influence would make such hate-filled, irrational and obscene comments about the death of former First Lady, Barbara Bush,” Vanderhoof said.

He added that the larger question that is being asked by parents and students is, “Why are we paying our hard earned dollars for higher education at FSU when we have professors like this who spew leftwing hate speech?”

This incident is an embarrassment to Fresno State University as well as the city of Fresno and the Central Valley, he said.

“Removing this professor would restore the credibility of our state university to the students, parents, donors and residents of our community,” said Vanderhoof.

Six Republican Party County Chairmen Issue a Joint Statement

Republican Party County Chairmen Issue Joint Statement on Cap and Trade Debacle

FRESNO, CA – Several Central California Republican Party Chairmen are disgusted with the betrayal by eight Republicans in Sacramento. Republican State Assembly leader Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley) and seven other Republican legislators have deeply angered grassroots activists across the state with their vote to join Democrats in extending the faulty cap and trade scheme.

“We campaign for you, we give you money, we make phone calls and walk precincts, and then what do we get in return? No wonder the GOP in California is lacking in enthusiasm and registrations. You take our goodwill and toss it overboard for your own careers and agendas,” a letter signed by ____ County Republican Party Chairmen stated.

Governor Jerry Brown was aided by the Republicans in receiving the two-thirds majority he needs to shield the law’s extension from legal challenges and extend cap and trade to 2030.

Ignoring the damage to jobs and the economy, and with no proof of a positive environmental effect by cap and trade, these Republicans have stuck their thumb in the eye of county Republican Central Committees and conservatives across the state. The chairmen are calling for Chad Mayes to step down as the Minority Leader. “We need leadership that fights the progressive agenda, and doesn’t cave to pressure from the loud voices on the left.”

The chairmen united in thanking those Republican legislators in the California Assembly and Senate for leading the fight against cap-and-trade. “Your strong voices in opposition will not be forgotten by us and other conservatives in California.”
