This is it folks, time to step up and help to, literally save our Republic!

I was privileged to be with the Strike Force for Senator Tom Tillis in NC to regain that R senate seat and then again for President Trump. This is more than sending a check to a candidate, this is giving some time and real effort to make a difference, Please join us to see how you can actually do something to take our country back.

State House District 58 with Represenative DeWayne Burns is redistricted excluding Bosque. We will be in District 13 with 5 other rural counties and the far east democrat voting corner of McLennan. There is no incumbent  so it will be an open seat.

Tuesdays July 13 and 20  at 7 pm.

Byrne is a libertarian who did not vote for Trump and has criticized him publicly: that said, he believes Election 2020 was rigged, and this fact should be objectionable to every person who believes that "just government derives its power from the consent of the governed." In this book he explains what caused him in August 2020 to study election fraud, and what really happened during the 2020 election. He describes how his team of "cyber-ninjas" unraveled it while they worked against the clock of Constitutional processes, all against the background of being a lifetime entrepreneur trying to interact with Washington, DC. This book takes you behind the headlines to backroom scenes that determined whether or not the fraud would be exposed in time, and paints a portrait of Washington that will leave the reader asking, "Is this the end of our constitutional republic?"

Time to get back in the saddle

We lost the battle but the war is not over.

I know most of you are willing to still be in 

the fight to save the American culture we

have known and cherished. 2022 will be 

critical to stop the damage the liberal left is going to inflict on America. Let's stand together and do our part as Patriots to get ready to take this great country back.

Bosque Republican Party Meeting

Remarks from  Sheriff Trace Hendricks &

County Judge Cindy Vanlandingham

Legislative and Election Integrity updates

Stop Wind Turbines in Bosque Initiative

As we are all disappointed in our Presidential election, we need now to just concentrate on our community. As Chairman of the Bosque Republican Party, I have agreed to be the coordinator for the Heart of Texas Human Trafficking Coalition in Bosque County. If you are interested in learning more about this dire problem, join us for an informative (COVID social distancing, mask wearing) meeting by registering here, just copy and paste this address to get to the form. If you have trouble, just email me that you will attend at:


Congratulations to our newly sworn in County Officials

County Court at Law Judge Luke Giesecke (second from left) swore in newly elected Officials 1/1/21

Sheriff  Trace Hendricks,  County Judge Cindy Vanlandingham,  Commissioner Billy Hall


County Chairman Janet Jackson, leads protest 

of District Judge Shaun Carpenter

Prior to our former County Auditor, Kent Reeves and prior to our currently elected County Treasurer Carla Sigler, our county finances were such that our bond rating was prohibitive of financing a desperately needed new Law Enforcement Center. After a major financial clean-up by Reeves, we were in a position to pass a bond that, over the life of the payout will save the county over $2 million dollars. We now have a completely modern Law Enforcement Center where county employees are safe and comfortable to work and we have the space availability to house out- of - county detainees for profit.

Not satisfied with the enormous work accomplished and additional tax burden to the citizens to move the Sheriff’s department and Jail to the new facility, our former Sheriff, a few years ago demanded pay raises above that given to county employees across the board. When the annual budget process could not accommodate the requested raises, the current outgoing Sheriff went on a public tirade. His harassment of the Auditor which included sophomoric attacks in the newspaper and on Face book, reminiscent of 7th grade hate mail was relentless. When the Commissioners Court would not acquiesce to his demands, the Sheriff decided he would ignore all normal interaction with the public, including a department ban he instituted on attending in uniform, each of the following annual 9-11 Memorials and Salute to First Responders at the Courthouse. After untold badgering and unwarranted attacks, it is no wonder our very competent Auditor accepted a position away from Bosque County. This has been a noticeable loss to the finally smooth running keeping of our county finances.

The District Judge is by law the person who hires and oversees the position of Auditor, who is in fact, the county Chief Financial Officer. Our newly elected District Judge Shaun Carpenter hired a person for the position without properly advertising for the position or interviewing additional candidates. The person he hired is a forensic auditor who had never worked with county budgets or county bookkeeping processes before. The learning curve according to many in the Courthouse has been long and disruptive. The Auditor has now contracted another forensic auditor to add to her growing staff, a person whose bedside manner would make a dying person want to pull their own life support. Although the county employee handbook states little tolerance for egregious behavior to other employees, this person has been witnessed to yell, badger and pester employees and elected officials in at least four separate departments in the county to unacceptable and actually unbelievable proportions, causing backlogs in their duties and reporting. The behavior of this person would certainly warrant termination under normal circumstances. However, she has been protected by the Auditor and Judge Carpenter with only a reprimand “to not do it again”.

The Auditor who is not content to work with the processes our former Auditor put in place that saved the county enormous sums of revenue is insisting that she (who had no prior experience with county or government budgets) would develop her own systems that everyone must adhere to including some processes that are not legal by state rules. THE CHAOS AT THE COURTHOUSE that all of this has caused for nearly a year now lies at the feet of the District Judge who is responsible for the Auditor’s position and department. Judge Carpenter has repeatedly been requested to handle the situation which he has refused to act upon except for inquiring if the position of county Treasurer could be eliminated. By the way, the county Treasurer has been locked out of the system used to enter all of the department receipts by the Auditor for over 8 weeks until the Auditor can work out her new system. Mediation with the County Attorney who is a licensed Mediator came to no fruition and there is ongoing consultation with the State County Treasurers Association to try to come to terms with this mess.

As a side note which may or may not have anything to do with this matter; it is known that the District Judge would like to suspend the second amendment rights of Bosque Citizens visiting the Courthouse. A notion not popular with many who work there. As one senior elected official remarked “show me a building or school with a gun free zone sign and I’ll show you a building with a target on it.” Coincidently, if the Treasurer was eliminated or moved out of the Courthouse, it is assumed the courthouse would then be completely Judicial and automatically a gun free zone. This would most probably ease the fears of a gun attack on the District Judge who often times has the courthouse Deputy escort him to and from his car upon arrival and departure. Just saying……. may or may not play into the desire to have the Treasurer removed.

We have a new Sheriff about to come into office on January 1 who is respectful of the Commissioners Court and all citizens, which many are looking forward to. As our current County Judge is stepping down December 31, the Commissioners Court will be naming a replacement soon. It is time for concerned citizens to step up and hold the District Judge and County Auditor accountable for all of these disruptions that stem from just one office. Let the workings in the Courthouse get back to normal where all employees and elected personnel are treated with respect and no longer have to endure the castigations from a superior protected by Judge Shaun Carpenter.

Judge Carpenter seems to think the Courthouse is his domain to rule. The Courthouse belongs to the citizens of Bosque county and he is merely an elected person who is only guaranteed another 2 years of his term. Perhaps he should ease up on his ego and simply do what is right.

Janet Jackson, Bosque County Republican Chairman

Special Guest Speaker, Pastor Ramiro Pena

Rev. Ramiro A Pena is the founder and pastor of Christ the King Baptist Church in Waco. He has a television ministry in both English and Spanish that reaches all 50 states and 120 countries. He travels extensively preaching the gospel and ministering to world leaders. The Lord has used him to help plant 14 other churches in Texas, Mexico, Cuba and India since 1991. He currently is involved with the Faith and Opportunity Initiative for President Donald J. Trump and served on the National Hispanic Advisory Council to Presidential candidate Donald Trump.


Congratulations to our New RPT Chairman

Lt. Col. Allen West

After a disastrous State Convention due to the lack of planning by the previous State Chairman, Allen West was elected to head the State Party by no less than a landslide. Garnering 27 of the 31 senate district caucus votes, the call for change was answered. A near fatal motorcycle crash just a month before did not slow this warrior down. Back on the campaign trail just days later with multiple injuries, proved his dedication to the cause.  Saving Texas from turning Blue will be greatly aided by having him at the helm.


Next Republican Club meeting will be 

Tuesday September 15 at the Clifton Civic Center
