And Made Amends
There are some Spiritual  Disciplines that require an amends be made when someone is wronged.
An Amends is NOT saying that You are Sorry.
It is instead saying I was Wrong and I intend to DO something to make things Right
The LCRCC owes an Amends to  Congressman Blum and his people and to the Scott Walker and Ben Carson Campaigns.
We were given Advance Notice as a  Courtesy
Of Two upcoming events. 
A Visit to Cedar Rapids by Scott Walker and Ben Carson both meeting with Congressman Blum
A very short time after our Leadership was informed of these events these two announcements went up on our Facebook Group Page

LCRCC News!!! Click to read more ... Dr. Ben Carson

What is wrong with this  Some might Ask?
Well for one thing it was NOT our announcement to make.
We announced it BEFORE the People who are going to be doing it had a chance to make their own announcement
That is just plain RUDE
But what is even Ruder is this

Gov. Scott Walker

April 24 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

You heard it here first, Gov. Scott Walker is coming to Cedar Rapids

More details to come!

Do you see that the Organizer is listed as  the

When we are NOT?
The Post on the LCRCC Facebook Group page leads to a page on the Linn County GOP Website which contains what you see above.

 At least  the Ben Carson Page mentions Congressman Blum
The Body needs to be informed HOW this happened.

And equally important HOW they intend to ensure that something like this

The Great Motion Expiration Swindle




Someday someone may explain to me Why anyone bothers lying about something that is public record.
In any event before the Plan for the St Patrick's Day  Massacre was presented
The Chair made certain Claims of Fact to the Body 
One was 
• Under Roberts Rules of Order committees and motions passed during the previous cycle expire 

That is NOT True and there is no doubt whatsoever about this Fact because

It seems that on the  28 January 2015 - 08:37 AM someone calling themselves

When do passed Motions expire?

And asked This Question

I was wondering if motions that had passed during a previous Executive boards rein, do these carry over to the new presiding officers? Do motions bind the hands of a new body after an election? I would thing by-law changes would but I am uncertain about motions?


Can someone advise and reference where it may or may not support the expunging of previous sessions passed motions? 

 On the



For those who might not Know RONR Stands for

Roberts Rules of Order Newly Revised


That is THE Officlal Roberts Rules of Order Website.

The Holy Grail.  The Fount from which flows ALL recognized Parlaimentary Procedure. 

Their answer?

 An Emphatic and Resounding NO

One even posted the page in Roberts Rules of Order 11th Edition where the NO might be found. 

 "Unless an adopted main motion specifies a time for the termination of its effect, it continues in force until it is rescinded." (RONR 11th ed., p. 111, ** footnote)


 It is obvious that I am taking the position that the above jkox65 is the sqme person as the LCRCC's Webmaster James Knox.

Some might disagree, and like those who excused Mr Knox accidental attempt to Vote point out that there might be OTHER people besides him with the Username of jknox65 


That IS possible, So despite being the Technological Dinosaur that I am purported to be I GOOGLED the Username jknox 65 and found 


jknox65, Author at ReFounding Father Society



Author's details

Name: James Knox
Date registered: September 30, 2012


 I I I    




I think we have a probability approaching Unity that the jknox65 on the RONR Discussion Forum, the Refounding Father Society and the Webmaster of the LCRCC James Knox are all the same person.

Now I must point out that this does not mean that the Chair and the Rest of the Exective Committee Lied to the Body 

 But a Valid Question would be

What did they Know and WHEN did they know it.

We know that on the moring of Janurary 28th of this year Mr Knox knew full well that the claim made  that


• Under Roberts Rules of Order committees and motions passed during the previous cycle expire 

 Was NOT True.

Another Valid question would be WHERE did the concept that the above WAS true originate? 


If it came from Mr Knox then I believe he should NEVER be allowed to be in ANY position of Responsibilty UNSUPERVISED 


If it came from one of the persons from  whom Parliamentarian advice was claimed then they should NOT ever be used as Parliamentarians again,

I think this goes way beyond a simple mistake or misinterpretation.

I have not the slightest doubt that Mr Chung would never in a thousand years allow something like this to slip by him HAD he been involved, 


In conclusion I know not what others may think but the Executive Committee has a severe credibility gap with me and some things to explain at our Next Meeting

    No. The board is free to rescind (or otherwise amend) motions previously adopted by the board (assuming, of course, that the actions authorized by the motions have not been completed). There is no "expunging".


    It's best not to think of "the old board" and "the new board". It's just "the board" (with occasional changes in membership).

    Everything I know about RONR I learned from Mr. Mountcastle. And everything he knows about RONR he learned from this forum.

    No, they don't bind the hands of a future body any more than they bind the hands of the current body.

    They're Baack


    The Vanished March Minutes seemed to have returned, 
    They seem unchanged but I have not checked every little bit of the present one to the original
    There are still a few things that raise my blood pressure for instance
    (Note I have used a link to the minutes section of the Linn County GOP website but if the March Minutes Vanish again I have a Clone Copy on my Server) 
    • The Chair explained that the Iowa Code, the Republican Party Constitution and Bylaws and the
    Linn County Republican Party Constitution and the Linn County Republican Party Bylaws require
    that the committee re-organize by April 1st following each general election.
    • Under Roberts Rules of Order committees and motions passed during the previous cycle expire.
    • The Chair explained that David Chung, Paul Pelletier and Richard Bice had been contacted 
    in regard to parliamentarian review.

    In the Spirit of the Last Shall be First let us look at that last Statement
    • The Chair explained that David Chung, Paul Pelletier and Richard Bice had been contacted 
    in regard to parliamentarian review.


    I call something like this a "Michael Moore" because it leads those who hear or read it to think one thing, but if pressed the author can honestly(?) claim that is not what they said at all. 

    I would wager that most who heard this the Night of the St Patrick's Day Massacre came to the conclusion that one of the Foremost Parliamentarians not only supported the Executive Committee's Plan but had ruled that the 
    Linn County Republican Party Constitution and the Linn County Republican Party Bylaws require(d) it
    That was NOT the Truth 
    How do I know this?  
    First because I knew the basis of their position and considered it fallacious
    Second because I had every confidence that he would find it that way too
    Third because I ASKED him that night
    I know I am supposed to be a Technological Dinosaur but I was able to stumble to my new lap top while the Slaughter of the Sub-Committees was ensuing open Facebook and call him up in Chat.
    I got this reply
    So you know me what do you think?
    Do you think I gave a definitive ruling?
    But if I had I would have been man enough to be there to defend it. 

     Now as to their claims that all this was required?


    They are based on the Sections of the Constitution and the Bylaws that discuss the OFFICERS

     And in fact discuss the requirements for organizing the Officer's elections before April 1st following each General Election.

    If they referred to a massive overhaul of the Committee then this would be mentioned in the Section on the Commitee





    The officers of this Central Committee shall be a chairman, co-chairman, secretary and

    treasurer, and such other members as the County Central Committee in its by-laws may

    provide. The Central committee shall organize following each general election, but no later

    than the following April 1. 




    The officers of the Central Committee shall consist of a Cahir, Co-Chair, Secretary and

    Treasurer whose terms shall be for a period of two (2) years and the same shall be elected

    immediately following each general election, but no later than the following April 1.

    They also mentioned Sections of the State Constitution and Bylaws and Election Code but were lacking on details

     But they DID follow a Pattern of Behavior that we have seen before

     We have a CRISIS we MUST ACT NOW in this case before April 1st

    OH and one of the Foremost Parliamentarians in the State Says we HAVE to do this or OMG The SKY WILL FALL.

     That last bit was as True this time as it has been True other times it has been used in point of Fact

    Not True At All




    If your vote the Night of the St Patrick's Day Massacre when 4 years of hard work and every single Sub-Committee we had established and all the members of those Committees went down the tube.

    Was swayed because you BELIEVED that one of the Foremost Parliamentarians in the State of Iowa Said that this was REQUIRED?




    But they did everything from the BEST of Intentions because we all SO need Guidance

    To Vote Or Not To Vote




    Dimitri was walking towards the Ballot Box when he started to open his ballot
    Dimitri! Growled the Poltical Commisar Just WHAT do you think you are doing?
    Excuse me Conrade Commisar Dimitri said, but I was curious aout who I was voting For.
    Dimitri You IDIOT the Commisar replied, Don't You know this is SECRET BALLOT. 
    Voting is rather important.  People have risked death and dismemberment to be able to Vote 

     So when I heard that people were making "assumptions" about their Right to Vote under the New Team System

    I decided to take a look at it.

    I am of course refering to the Plan thet is contained in Missing March Minutes. 

    Which I managed to Save before the Vanished from the Linn County Website.
    Not I might add the version of the Plan that was subsituted 2 Days after the St Patrick's Day Massacre which may SAY that is was
    But that is a  Lie because  it was ALTERED and is theefore NOT what was voted on and adopted.
    Somebody was trying to be a tad sneaky?
     I mean if you want to rewrite History you should wait more than 2 days.  It helps to instill NEWTHINK to let enough time pass that people's memories get a little dim
    In any case there is some verbage about the constitution of our Teams
    1. LCRCC members are asked to signup as a voting member for one team. Each team starts with 5 voting members.
    2.  The objective is to match volunteer time and skills with the mission or activity of the team.
    3. Some teams (such as Fundraising, Caucus, Convention) will require additional members to accomplish their tasks.
    4.  These will grow, as the team leader deems necessary 
    Now I have heard that some folks are "assuming" that the additional members will ALSO be voting members.
    BUT if the Teams follow the sugestions in the End of the Year Report Given by the Org Committee?
    That might not be the case.
    It says in the section called Recommendation going forward
     This sub-committee needs five voting members, including the chair. Although it is expected that other sub-committee chairs would attend the meetings and any central committee members have any interest in the proceeding from the committee, they would not be voting members

    I suggest it might not be Wise to ASSUME who is or is not going to be allowed to Vote.


    There exists the possiblity that Voting may be limited to only 5 members on a Team who for the most part would be those hand picked by the Ones who made this motion,.

     And the Rest?

    Would be what the Nomenklatura in the Former Soviet Union used to call

    The Proletariot.

    Those who get to do the Work, but have No Real Say in How Things Are Run 







    Now I am NOT saying that we need to ASK for clarification on this point.

    What I am saying is that the BODY needs to clarify this point

    After this Plan was adopted by it's Vote of 25 to 21 the Plan became the Property of the Body and NOT those who made the Motion

    The Teams are under the Authority of the Body.

    And the Executive Committee which made this Motion?

     No Change IT  is


    subject to the orders of the Linn County Central Committee, and none of its acts shall conflict with actions of the Linn County Central Committee

    We Have Ways

    We have ways of dealing with People like YOU!





     That's an Old Familiar Story.  One that I have a fair amount of experience with.


    There are those who will actually engage you on Field of Ideas.  They come wielding the armor of Logic and ths Sword of Reason

    Now their Logic may be flawed and their Reason may be Blind but they are at least honorable Foes.

    Then there are the Others.

    Those whose goals are Power and Control, They wish mostly to Silence any Voices raised in Disagreement with them.


    Rober Heinlein stated it most aptly when he said " 


     Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire

     The methods used to encourage Silence may vary but the process is used by Some on All Sides of the Political Spectrum.


    In recent weeks those methods have included.

    An attempt to Steal My Identity and request that the Web Server Host where my website resides Cancel my Account.  They lacked enough of my personal information so that failed,

    There was a report to Facebook of Suspicous Activity on My Facebook Account so I had to fill out a form Affirming that the Financial Means used to buy Facebook Ads were my Own and i had to submit to them a Jpg of a Government Issued Color Photo Id to verify that I am indeed A US Citizen,.

    Still have not heard back from Facebook on that little Deal

    And of course there was the Famous Letter sent to me by Tah Dah


    A Real Republican 


    In an envelope though the post office,

    Not sure why they just didn't email it to me there are ways to send Anonymous Emails,

    I wonder if maybe the Letter is supposed to hint

    We know who you are and We know where you Live? 

    But that is a YAWN

    Other people who do not like my Poltical Ideas know where I live and have in the Past also expressed their displeasure with what I stand for,


    During the McCain Palin Campaign I lost count of the number of times I had to straighten out the legs and put my signs back up  in my front yard.

    This happened over and over.

    Then one day I woke up and while I had been sleeping my signs had been mangled again and two windows had been smashed out in my car


    I put my signs back up and had the windows replacec,

    Sometime later I came home from work and found my signs mangled and the porch light hanging from the wires.  Someone had ripped it loose from the Wall


    I put my signs back up and told my Landlord and he fixed the porch light.

    Then one Day I can out of my house and my Landlords who are also my next door neighbors hollered out that someone had ripped the downspout off the house and threw it in the front yard by my mangled signs

    It was now up agains the house my Landlord said at the time he was going to wait until after the Election to fix it,.

    I put my signs back up.

    Did I mention I can be stubborn?

    There are one distinct difference between those who harassed me then and now. 

    I have no earhtly idea who the first people were.

    While I do not know for certain who this latest group are I can make some guesses.

    One of those who I might suspect put a comment on the LCRCC Facebook Group site saying how he wished HE had written the harassing letter sent to me. 


    Someone forwarded me this link to a anonymous letter that I really wish I could have taken credit for. Heck I would have signed my name, so please consider it mirroring my sentiments. Perhaps it reflects yours?

    What a fool writes a blog and complains about a group he claims to be of but opposes at every opportunity to do so.


     Unless maybe the comment was an April Fools Joke?

    In any event there are also some similarities between the two groups

    They both wrap themselves in a Self Assumed Cloak of Moral Superiority and their morals admit the same stench  that once upon a time came from Brown Shirts


    They also liked to silence those who disagreed with them. 


    Update: I just remembered there is a THIRD group that really hates me.

    Quite some time I logged onto a discussion board and found out that i had been informed that

    There are now Hundreds of the Faithful Praying to Allah (PBUH) on a Daily Basis that your Soul be Ripped Shrieking from your Body by the Angel of Darkness and Thrown Into the Bottomless Pit of Endless Torment for All Eternity. 


     Now it is much shorter than my recent letter but I think they got their point accross just as well. 


    So it would appear that there exists an Ecumenical Silence Dan Kauffman Movement possibly comprised of  Evangelical Protestants, Catholics, Jihadist Muslims and Secular Huminist Atheists. 

    I seem to have rubbed everyone the wrong way

    The Truth will do that.

    Being A Chair
    58. Chairman or President. 
    The chairman sometimes calls a member to the chair and takes part in the debate
    . This should rarely be done, and nothing can justify it in a case where much feeling is shown
    and there is a liability to difficulty in preserving order. If the chairman has even the appearance of being a partisan, he loses much of his ability to control those who are on the opposite side of the question.
    There is nothing to justify the unfortunate habit some chairmen have of constantly speaking on questions before the assembly, even interrupting the member who has the floor.
    One who expects to take an active part in debate should never accept the chair, or at least should not resume the chair, after having made his speech, until after the pending question is disposed of.1 The presiding officer of a large assembly should never be chosen for any reason except his ability to preside.

    Trolls Matter Too

    Recently I ran into an intesting comment or two about Trolls 


    Some people are trolls....attended a great Social Media class on how to deal with them yesterday. Essentially there was a bunch of great suggestions until it came to the "political or religious troll' and then it was stated...'there is no rules as these type of trolls are irrational, emotional and self-supporting without reason'. This was the exact quote from the instructor.
    Remind you of anyone my friends?
    A user's photo.


    Now some might come to the erroneous assumption that the butt of this joke might be me, but that cannot be true at all. 


    The caricature that comes with it does not look anything like me.

    No beard, No hair and a big smirk on its face?

    Nope nothing like me but there is someone who that does look like, 


    Then there is this part " the "political or religious troll'

    .'there is no rules as these type of trolls are irrational,

    emotional and self-supporting without reason'"


    That does not apply either,

    I am not Irrational or without Reason. 

    When I have stated that the Constitution of the LCRCC has been violated I can and HAVE stated the specific sections that have been violated and the instances where not just the Spirit but the WORD of the Constitution has been violated and by whom.


    When I have stated that the By Laws of the LCRCC has been violated I can and HAVE stated the specific sections that have been violated and the instances where not just the Spirit but theWORD of the Constitution has been violated and by whom. 

    I used Reason and was Rational when I pointed out those perversions of our Rules of Order. 


    My detractors, however are limited to unsupported assertions,

    For instance in the continuing saga of the Constitutional and Unconstitutional Leaders of our New Marketing & PR Team

    One Team Leader was created by a Vote of the Central Committee in Session,

    The Other?  Well I do not think they have EVER stated the Legal Authority used to remove one Team Leader and replace them with another,

    Instead they just make as I said unsupported assertions,

    We can see that in some of the latest email exchanges

    Subject: RE: Membership meeting 4/14

    Please reference the attached document which was voted on by the body of the central committee. This document clearly shows me being the team leader. I have not resigned from this position and have shown clear intent to fill this position.

    The official meeting for Membership and Meeting Setup has been called for tonight at Godfather's at 6:30. Anyone is welcome to attend.

    Please quit trying to confuse this issue. I am attempting to fulfill the will of the body, but have been faced with constant obstacles.

    Subject: Re: Membership meeting 4/14

    Robin (& Justin),

    There is no misunderstanding here - Justin is not the team lead of Membership.  

    Therefore, the meeting tonight will be viewed and treated as a gathering of like-minded friends.  It will not replace nor usurp the authority of the meeting on 4/14.  We've been down this road before with another committee last September.   

    There is only one position left on the team.  If Justin would like to recommend an individual to Mike or if someone would like to volunteer to Mike, that's wonderful. The 4 individuals are Mike Dupree, Deb Dupree, Gary Ellis, Justin Wasson.  Others have expressed interest in helping without holding a voting position, as they are voting members of another team.  

    As for a different view of the Executives - I do not respond to third-hand information.  If Justin (or anyone else) wants to communicate, it can be done in person or via a phone call.  Innuendo, distortion and third-party personal attacks through other sources will NOT get him where he wants to be.  I refuse to play those games.

    Apparently, Justin has the capability to express his concerns to you.  If he wants to talk, he knows how to reach me.  

    I will be tied up with out-of-town clients today and tomorrow so will have limited ability to read or respond to emails or phone calls.  I will try to stay on top of any pressing concerns.

    Have a great day,

    I believe Justin is recommending two members for the Team?


    Mike and Justin will hopefully work well together, as we move forward, with Membership.


    I noticed an e-mail tonight from Justin recommending a couple of more members for the Team.

    I have been swamped this week and just getting caught up with more e-mail.


    Justin is not going to be a member of the Treasurer's Team, but as we get closer to Caucus and Convention, I would suspect he will have an interest in working with our Team to support various tasks, the Chair and Treasurer have with compliance with Iowa Code and our accounting and recording functions?


    He shared with me that he was active with three committees last period, before the new Executive Election. Change can be challenging with our membership. Some are voicing concerns ...


    He has some different ideas than the Executive Committee and is interested in voicing his concerns.

    The recognized Membership meeting will be 4/14, lead by Mike Dupree.  You are a voting member of the team.  Please consider  attending.  If you chose not to participate on this team, please let Mike know so your position may be filled by someone willing to serve on the team.  Membership & Meeting setup will work closely with Secretary Gary Ellis, as he is responsible for recording accurate attendance.  

    Distortion, embellishment and fabrication will not enhance your reputation nor help the LCRCC be successful.  Events are recorded because of similar situations with others in the past. We will not participate in the "he said-she said" dialogs.  

    Please join the rest of the membership team on the 14th.  I have heard that you may have some great ideas.  Let's work together to make positive things happen.  

    Cindy Golding 


    Linn county Republicans

    Sory I cannot find one single word in there explaining by what Authority a Team Leader created by a Vote of the LCRCC has been removed and another person chosen to replace them,. 
    I mean am I MISTAKEN? 
    Does the Republican Party of Linn County NO Longer support Constitutions and the Rule of Law
    Have we replaced that with Rule By Executive Edicts in emulation of our Current President???

    The Ted Cruz For President Forums


    LCRCC News!!! Click to read more ... April’s Central Committee Meeting


    Some People cannot handle responsibility. 


    Iowa and New Hampshire share between them a signal honor and a responsibility.


    They are  first in the Nation as regards Presidential Races.

     We are the First Caucus State they are the First Primary State. 

    The single most important thing for either is to

    Maintain Neutrality 

    The Party MUST NOT be partisan.

    We must treat all candidate with an even and unbiased hand,

    The very appearance of Bias can threaten what has been for generations a source of pride for many Iowans.

    Party officials must abide by these strictures.

    Which is why it is alarming to see the  Facebook Pages of the second largest County in the State having the appearance of

     Ted Cruz For President Forums

     Party officials should not allow that sort of bias to show on the County pages.

    Nor should they perform partisan activities on the personal pages.

    If they wish to do that. If it is that important to them,'

    They should resign their position as others have done in the Past to work in election campaigns.

    Now some might accuse me of writing this because I do not favor Ted Cruze.

    That would be the result of their own ignorance,

    I LIKE Senator Cruz and think he is an exciting and dynamic candidate.

    I also think Rafael Rocks.

    No it is not because I oppose Ted Cruze that I write this, but because I opppose irresponisibel unethical behavior.

    If you are a Party official you represent ALL Republicans, not just the ones that you agree with. 

    It is certainly not appropriate for Admins of the LCRCC websites to exhibit such bias.

    It needs to stop.

    Someone needs to start doing their job.

    Though Truth be Told those Someones cannot at present be our new Marketing & PR Team


    Who are supposed to be in charge of our Public relation communications, internal and external messaging.

    Because it does not appear that anyone has bothered to make any of them bsides the Webmaster Admins


    No the Responisibilty and the Blame falls solely upon

    The Chair, The Co-Chair and the Webmaster

    Who ARE Admins ,

    A Tale Of Two Teams
    We seem to have Two
    Membership Meeting and Setup Teams.
    One established by a Vote of the Linn County Republican Central Commitee in Session as part of a Motion made by the Executive Committee.
    Which can be seen in the . Minutes of the March 17th Meeting  that  I have saved on my website because the original March Minutes on the Linn County GOP Website seem to have vanished.
    I also wish to take Note that a version of what was called the Road Map to Victory 2016 sent out AFTER the meeting is NOT the same as the one in the March Minutes before they Vanished.
    So the Note on it that states
    Is NOT True 
    The newer version differs in the makeup of the  Meeting and Setup Team.
    So one was established by the Authority of a Vote of the Central Committee as a whole.
    The other by WHAT Authority? 
    I have NO idea,  It seems to be a version of
    "Because We Say So." 
    I recall hearing that kind of responce as a Child but that Dog doesn't Hunt Anymore. 
    Our Executive Committee seems to have decided that since they abolished all the Sub-committees and their memberships by a Vote of 25 to 21 that they no longer NEED to bother with Votes to Do Anything they Choose. 
    What is that Stench some of you may be thinking?
    It is our County Constitution and ByLaws having  a Dump taken upon them
