President Trump to Speak at Heritage Foundation, 10/17/17

It is my honor to announce that President Donald Trump will address Heritage members at our annual President’s Club Meeting on Tuesday, October 17 at 7:30 pm Eastern.

I invite you to listen to President Trump’s message and participate in the conversation by tuning in live here —https://secured.heritage.org/watch-pres-trump/. You don’t want to miss it!

When you use this link you’ll also get a chance to comment on the speech and share your thoughts on how we can make America great again.

Heritage has been instrumental in providing the Trump administration with sound policies and experts who now serve in key government positions.

The Trump Administration has drawn from Heritage’s plans to balance the budget, cut wasteful government programs and agencies, strengthen our national security, fix our broken immigration system, protect religious liberty and the dignity of life, and provide tax relief to Americans.

You can watch President Trump’s address on Tuesday, October 17 at 7:30 pm Eastern by clicking on this link — https://secured.heritage.org/watch-pres-trump/

President

Constitution Class, 10/21/17

Institute on the Constitution is premiering their new 4 session Constitution course.  The entire course will be covered in Saturday 21 Oct.  This will be a great opportunity for All to get a look at the IOTC program and learn about our founding documents.  But in order to have ample supplies available, Ricki Pepin needs immediate responses on all who want to attend and purchase the course materials.  Please RSVP to Ricki.  Her email is ricki@pepin.com

THE TIME IS NOW TO REGISTER FOR THE IOTC HERITAGE SEMINAR!  

Our most vulnerable Americans are at risk, and along with them, the very liberty and principles upon which our nation was founded.  These Americans are our children, our future generations that will vote, enact legislation and lead our nation.  What are these future leaders learning?  What are their values, morals, attitudes and standards?  Most urgently, what are they being taught about America, its purpose and history? A strategy is afoot to deceive our children and defraud them of their God-given rights and liberty.  Their American Christian heritage is the most valuable inheritance they have.  How will our children learn the truth about America?  If parents do not counsel their children, the world will.  If the church does not counsel people, the world will.  Martin Luther King Jr. said, “The church must be reminded that it is…the conscience…guide and critic of the state…”

Koinos Christian Fellowship is offering a solution to this dilemma, and THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER FOR THIS LIFE-CHANGING EVENT – The Truth of America’s Founding – Your Heritage & Mine,” to be held Saturday, October 21, from 10 AM – 4 PM.  Contact Ricki or Koinos Christian Fellowship to enroll

Our future is bright, if we pass on the knowledge that will protect our children’s heritage.

OVIP Op-Ed letter in support of John Husted

Please note the opinions written below are not the opinion of Miami County Liberty but are solely those of Ohio Voter Integrity Project and rewritten to promote discussion and provoke thought. 

Ohio Voter Integrity was asked for our opinion about how Ohio’s elected officials, Secretary of State (SOS) Jon Husted and Ohio Attorney General (AG) Mike DeWine, have worked to improve voter integrity and investigate and prosecute voter fraud.
The following comments come completely from our own experiences over the past 6 years as leaders of the Ohio Voter Integrity Project (Ohio VIP), a non-partisan, nonprofit 501 (c) (4) organization. Because of our tax status, we cannot endorse candidates and therefore do not endorse either 2018 Ohio gubernatorial candidate mentioned here.
When evaluating the performance of the SOS or AG, it is important to
understand a few of the responsibilities and limitations of these two elected positions with respect to elections.
Ohio Secretary of State:
• Is the chief election officer for the State of Ohio
• Makes sure that Ohio and Federal election laws are correctly interpreted and followed by the county Boards of Elections (BOEs)
• Gives directives, advisories and memos to the County BOEs to help them to interpret and implement new or revised election laws.
• Does not make election law. That is the job of the Ohio Legislature.
• Does not have the authority to interfere with the county BOEs unless:
       ο They request his help on a matter,
       ο A BOE needs his vote to break a tie
       ο He determines that the County BOE is not operating under existing election laws.
Ohio Attorney General:
• Is the chief law officer for the state of Ohio
• Is responsible for prosecuting cases of election fraud that are
referred to him by the Ohio Secretary of State and other sources
• May refer election cases to the counties for prosecution
• Has the power to prosecute any and all election cases that occur within the state.
Our Experiences with Jon Husted and Mike DeWine:
