    Hi Friends,

    My name is Larry Semerad and I have written and recorded a song ([Crank The Pump And] Drain The Swamp) which should be of very much interest to you. I understand a campaign rally is scheduled nearby in Fayetteville on September 9th. I believe this song will supply the impetus to propel Dan Bishop to victory, as well as our esteemed president in the 2020 election. If this song is pumped through the sound system at a campaign rally, the crowd is bound to respond with a feverish level of excitement. I have submitted the song to various Republican Headquarters who plan to use the song. I can mail a cee-dee to you and/or send the song in an attachment (MP3 file), however it requires 13 MB on your end. I am including the lyric (below) with this correspondence.

    Thank you, folks, take care, don’t fall in the swamp, and above all, keep on keeping-on living the healthy life.

    (Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    (Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    They say the Russians caused disruption.

    (Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    Well, we’ve a deep state and it’s worse than Watergate,

    (Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    Without doubt it must be cleaned out.

    (Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    Each and every culprit should be locked up.

    (Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    The election had an outcome the opposition cannot bear.

    Federal cops pulled out the stops to take our POTUS out of there,

    And this should make us all beware.

    We hear collusion; Russian intrusion.

    (Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    We know it’s a hoax; and that’s no joke.

    (Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    The other side spied and lied.

    Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    They were sure she’d win till the votes came in.

    (Crank the pump and drain the swamp)

    They say Trump’s rotten,

    Yet he’s not forgotten common folks like you and me.

    They can’t defeat him, so they say impeach him,

    Claiming there’s conspiracy.

    But we know which ones are guilty.

    This land of plenty has thrived on the many

    Whose sweat and blood built this great U.S.A.

    And yet the deep state tried to invalidate

    What we the people had to say,

    When we cast our votes that day.

    Since there will not be documents at the Convention, one must print the documents at home. However, the format requires too many pages to be printed. Some method needs to be used to reduce the number of printed pages.

    Immanuel Jarvis

    Chairman, Durham GOP

    Dear Mr. Jarvis:

    About your letter to the Herald-Sun.

    I used to be a Republican, and over the years I’ve voted for many GOP candidates including numerous GOP presidential candidates. I believe in traditional GOP principles, such as limited government, fiscal responsibility and the need for individual responsibility.

    However, the current GOP has abandoned these principles and I have left the party for the following reasons:

    • Both parties must set minimum qualifications for its candidates, which include human decency, competence for the job, good personal character, freedom from corruption, honesty, lack of bigotry, respect and compassion for others. Donald Trump fails on every one of these qualifications. The Republican leadership should spell out its qualifications for candidates and adhere to them. The GOP should never have supported Trump as the nominee. I would have voted for Kasich. Trump has made so many bad decisions, engaged in so many corrupt or criminal activities, appointed so many bad, ill-suited people to high positions for the wrong reasons, that it is beyond the scope of this letter to list them. Trump is the laughing stock for all the world leaders of our allies. Instead of “draining the swamp” he has enlarged it and made it slimier.

    • Today’s GOP places higher priority in protecting Trump rather than checking his excesses. Devon Nunes, for example, has been particularly egregious in placing protection of Trump first, rather than doing his job properly as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Today’s GOP leaders, with the exception of a few like Flake and McCain, have been wimps, afraid as hell of holding Trump honest in his job. GOP leaders have been and are big cowards, and they are not doing their job properly for the American people.

    • The recent tax cut bill is the height of fiscal irresponsibility; it will add over $1 trillion in new federal debt over the next several years. It gave a huge tax break to the super-rich, when they don’t need it. Now the GOP makes noises of cutting Medicare and Social Security to partially fund the tax cut for the super-rich.

    • I believe that health care should be affordable for all. Many working people cannot afford their own health care. Over the past three decades the GOP has made absolutely no effort to reform health care and to make it affordable and to protect people with pre-existing conditions. All they have done is to repeatedly try to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and to allow health insurance companies to reinstall pre-existing conditions clauses in their insurance policies. Too many GOP senators and representatives are in beholden to special interests and lobbyists.

    • I am strongly against all the voter suppression and gerrymandering the GOP has done recently.

    Sincerely yours,
  • John Booth

    This site needs to be proofed!. For example, Chuck Kitchen…no ‘s’ on his name. Take all the ‘titles’ off…Judge, Justice, Dr. so they will be consistent with their names as they appear on the ballot. Always care about Republicans appearing bright and informed. After all, we are asking citizens to entrust the governing of this country to us!!!

    I would like to be able to inform both Republican and Democrat candidates that they are invited to meet with the audience during the break and at the Meet & Greet after the “Value of the Vote Summit” to be held on Saturday, October 20th from 2-6 at the Hayti Heritage Center. They may contact me for a referral to our Committee Chairpsesons for the limited space available. I will also send a flyer with additional information, if requested. We expect around 100 or double attendees at this event. The sponsor is the Health Defenders Task Force subsumed under the Coalition for Health Care of NC, but composed of representatives of several community organizations. See Face Book and CHCNC website.

    Hi there, I am the Vice Chairman for the Republican and Libertarian Law Students Association at North Carolina Central University School of Law. We have scheduled Dr. Alveda King to come and speak at the law school on March 29, 2018 at Noon. We have been informed of potential protesting and were wondering if anyone in the Durham Republicans office has any advice or guidance they can provide from past experience on how to best handle this, as we do not want our right to have her on Campus infringed.

    Any and all ideas/guidance would be greatly appreciated. NCCU is currently looking into what they can and cannot do.

    Thank you in advance.
