Republican 5th Congressional District Convention April 2012

On Saturday, April 14, 2012, I attended the Republican 5th Congressional District Endorsing Convention.

There was a stage at the front of the room. Approximately 6 people were seated on the stage. Every person seated was a Ron Paul Libertarian. The Convention was overrun by Ron Paul Libertarians. More than 2/3 of the delegates were Ron Paul Libertarians. When I mentioned that we were at a Republican Convention, they laughed out loud.

They began the Convention. There was no opening prayer. Not even a mention of it.

There was also no Pledge of Allegiance to the US flag.

Then, a man up front stood up and requested that we recite the Pledge of Allegiance. But alas, upon looking around, there was not a flag to be seen.

Then, a clown came forward, dressed in garb, with a very large hat, that somewhat resembled a flag. In Wikipedia, wearing a flag is a form of flag desecration. Wikipedia states the following:

It is increasingly common to see clothing with the image of the flags forming a substantial part of the piece. Views vary as to whether some of this is an act of disrespect.

Such actions may be undertaken for a variety of reasons:

- As a protest against a country's foreign policy.
- To distance oneself from the foreign or domestic policies of one's home country.
- As a protest at the very laws prohibiting the actions in question.
- As a protest against nationalism.
- As a protest against the government in power in the country, or against the country's form of government.
- A symbolic insult to the people of that country.

So it appears that this person was wearing the US flag in order to desecrate our flag.

The clown in the flag suit then went up front and stood on the stage. We were then led in the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. Stunning. To me this seemed a further desecration of the US flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. I refused to participate.

Later, a vote was taken as to whether any endorsement of any Congressional candidate was going to take place. A decision was made to do so.

There were going to be 3 candidates allowed to speak. I was told a couple of days before the Convention by Adam Weigold, Chair, that I would be allowed an unlimited amount of time to speak. The first candidate allowed to speak, Chris Fields, a Libertarian, was allowed an unlimited amount of time. I was then asked by Chris Sinn, a Libertarian, how long my speech would take. I had prepared a 30 minute speech. I told Chris the length of time I expected my speech to take. They knew that I was going to criticize the Libertarian platform, and expose that Chris Fields is actually a Libertarian, and expose his positions, etc. Chris Fields has been trying to pass himself off as a moderate Republican, and has avoided taking any positions in public or on his website. Juliette Jordahl, a Libertarian, then quickly brought a motion to limit my speech to 10 minutes. It passed. I am currently reading a book, Dietrich Bonhoeffer. One of the first things the Nazis did was to outlaw speech criticizing the Nazis. I have been contacted by Libertarian Adam Weigold telling me not to expose Chris Fields, etc. I told Adam that he was infringing upon my liberty - freedom of political speech. One would think that the Libertarians would encourage critical thinking, freedom of speech, and expression of political speech.

Thus, instantaneously, I had to cut out 2/3 of my speech. During my presentation, as mentioned above, they laughed out loud when I mentioned that we were at a Republican Convention. The mention that the Constitution did not protect homosexual behavior brought jeers. I also mentioned that Chris Fields has said that Saddam Hussein got a bad deal, that he applauds Keith Ellison's representation of Muslims, that he thinks our cherished US Constitution is not perfect, that he supports gay rights legislation, and that he would not protect Life with legislation. When I then mentioned that Chris Fields had been advocating, to our Republican college youth, the legalization of pot smoking, this brought loud, lengthy cheering and clapping, and then the announcement that my time was up. I mentioned that President and General George Washington did not advocate pot smoking and that if he did, we probably would not have won the American Revolutionary War.

This is what is going on in your Republican Party folks.

Please note that Libertarians, who actually have PROGRESSIVE positions:

- want to eliminate the TSA

- want to eliminate the Patriot Act

- are anti-war

- are pro gay rights

- don't want to protect Life with legislation

- have a pro Muslim agenda

- are generally anti-Christian

- don't want to support Israel

- don't want to prevent a nuclear Iran

- want to legalize illegal drugs

- want to legalize prostitution

Adam Weigold, a staunch Ron Paul Libertarian supporter, re-ran for Chair of the 5th Congressional District. He ran un-opposed. I do not understand why no Republican ran against him.

Mark Johnson, a Libertarian, SD 60 Chair, ran for Deputy Chair, and was elected. Red Bartholomew, a long time Republican ran against him. The vote was 100 to 40, in favor of Libertarian/Progressive Mark Johnson. Please note that Mark Johnson participated in Occupy Wall Street, at the Hennepin County Government Center.

Jacquelyn America proudly mentioned more than once that she has been working with the Somali community.

I recently read an article in Mother Jones. It reported that the Libertarians did a study and concluded that given its form of government, that the State of New Hampshire would be the easiest State in the Union to take over. Then, 14,000 Libertarians moved to New Hampshire. It appears that a similar strategy is being employed in Minneapolis, and the State of Minnesota.

This is your Republican Party folks. Do nothing at your peril.

Pro Sharia ICNA's disinformation campaign

Pro-Shariah Group Launches Disinformation Campaign

The Islamic Circle of North America has launched a $3 million campaign to convince Americans that Shariah, the legal code of Islam, is no threat. ICNA is not exactly the best salesman.

The New York-based group, which was founded in 1968 by leaders of the Pakistani branch of the radical Muslim Brotherhood, is promoting Shariah law in a "25-city education tour" that features billboards, radio and TV ads, town hall forums and campus interfaith events.

"The plan is to clear up common misconceptions about Shariah and the Islamic faith," ICNA says. It's responding to legislative efforts to ban judges from recognizing Shariah law in Kansas, Texas, South Carolina, Georgia, Oklahoma, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, Arizona and South Dakota.

"Muslim-Americans are asking for the same fundamental rights to observe Shariah" as other faiths enjoy observing their tenets, ICNA asserts.

Of course, Shariah involves far more than just worship. It commands a separate political system. Unlike other religions, it seeks to substitute the U.S. Constitution with its own commandments, which discriminate against women and non-Muslims, restrict free speech, and prescribe cruel and unusual punishment, among other things.

Through groups such as ICNA, as well as the hundreds of mosques it controls, the Muslim Brotherhood teaches Muslim-Americans that Shariah is the law of the land. This is in direct contravention of the so-called supremacy clause, which states: "This Constitution shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby."

Shariah has already crept into U.S. court cases, mostly involving family law. Some heavily Muslim areas of the U.S. have become "no-go zones," where domestic abuse cases, even honor killings, are covered up.

But then, ICNA knows all this. That's why it's trying to disarm the public through a massive propaganda campaign in the U.S.

The ICNA official behind the campaign, Sabeel Ahmed, has privately told Muslims: "We should use every opportunity presented or created to sensitize non-Muslim peers and school staff with Islam and establish an environment in which everywhere a non-Muslims (sic) turn, they notice Islam portrayed in a positive way and get influenced by it and eventually accept Islam with Allah's guidance, insha Allah."

It's plain that ICNA has an agenda other than protecting religious freedom. But it goes beyond conversion of non-Muslims. Here's what ICNA is really hiding:

• The secret archives of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, seized by FBI agents in 2004, list ICNA among "our organizations."

• The document, found in the basement of a terror suspect in Annandale, Va., and translated from Arabic, says "their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house, so that it is eliminated and Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions."

• The same Brotherhood charter calls for the creation one day of a "Central Islamic Court" in America, according to the best-seller "Muslim Mafia."

• ICNA recently merged with a sister group — the Muslim American Society — which the Justice Department says is the U.S. branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.

• ICNA's "Great Leaders of the last 100 Years" features the late Pakistani Brotherhood leader Maulana Abul Ala Maududi, who has said: "Islam wishes to do away with all states and governments anywhere."

• It also lionizes the late Egyptian Brotherhood leader Sayyid Qutb, who stated: "Wherever an Islamic community exists, it has a God-given right to step forward and take control of the political authority so that it may establish the divine system (Shariah) on earth."

• ICNA has featured in its magazine, "The Message," the writings of the Muslim Brotherhood's spiritual leader, Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who has stated the following: "What we seek is that legislations and codes be within the limits of the flawless texts and the overall objectives of the Shariah and the Islamic message." Qaradawi, banned from U.S. entry since 1999, has also declared: "We will conquer America."

Those running ICNA's ads and plastering highways (including New York's Lincoln Tunnel) with billboards should know what they're dealing with — a subversive group running a disinformation campaign.

Support Lynne Torgerson for Congress against radical Islamist Keith Ellison and Ron Paul Libertarian Chris Fields

April, 2012

Re: If conservatives don’t support the right values, there isn’t
anyone else left who will do so. Therefore, we must! And,
we must do so for the rest of our lives.

Dear Friends and Family:

I hope this finds you well.

My name is Lynne Torgerson, and I am running to be Congresswomen for the 5th Congressional District of Minnesota. I am seeking to uphold the Constitution, keep America secure, and defeat incumbent Keith Ellison.

I want to begin by thanking all of you for your faithful support over these years, your generous donations, and your words of encouragement. I am very grateful. You have helped support and strengthen our Conservative Cause.

I have realized something lately . . . If Conservatives do not stand up for the right values, who will? No one, that is who. Therefore, we must. We must stand up for the right values, and, we must do so for the rest of our lives. If we don’t, there is no one who will. And then, our values will not be represented in the United States. And, it is our values that have made America great. Therefore, we must fight to keep our values ruling and reigning. They have given us all of the freedoms under which we live. We lived in the most blessed Country on earth. We are the best, safest, most free, and most prosperous Country on earth. I want to help keep it that way.

We must never give up. . . quitters never win, and winners never quit!
Will you help give me the opportunity to defeat progressives by making a contribution to my campaign? Any amount from $25 to the legal maximum of $2500 will help support our righteous cause.

And, we shall eventually win in this district, against radical Islamist Keith Ellison. I am in this for the long haul.

Keith Ellison is a radical Islamist. What is a radical Islamist? A radical Islamist is someone who wants to have Sharia Law supreme in the United States, and will use political means or terror, to accomplish that goal. Keith Ellison, when asked, refuses to say that our cherished US Constitution should remain supreme over Sharia Law. He also recently said that the US will eventually have no borders. Well, if the US has no borders, there is no United States of America! What an anti-American thing for a sitting US Congressman to say.

Keith Ellison is also tied to CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, which has been a named co-conspirator to funding terrorism, in the Holy Land Foundation Trial, which resulted in convictions for sending $12,000,000.00 to the terrorist organization Hamas. Keith Ellison is the keynote speaker for CAIR annual dinners. CAIR also helps Keith Ellison raise campaign funds. So, we have a sitting Congressman who helps a named co-conspirator to funding terrorism raise funds!

I am running against him.

With Ellison in Congress, America’s security is in jeopardy!

Will you help give me the chance to defeat Keith Ellison by making a contribution to my campaign? Any amount from $25 to the legal maximum of $2500 will give me an edge I need in the race against one of the most radical congressmen our country has ever seen.

We also need to keep Ron Paul Libertarians out of the Republican Party! It appears that they are trying to take over my district, and perhaps the Minnesota Republican State Party. I have been told that there is a majority of delegates in my district who are Libertarians! We cannot let this happen. Libertarians are PROGRESSIVES! For example, they say they:

Want to get rid of the Patriot Act!
Want to get rid of the TSA!
Don’t want to support our friend and ally Israel!
Want to legalize illegal drugs
Want to legalize prostitution
Bring all the troops home
They are anti-war
Don’t want to prevent a nuclear Iran
Won’t protect the life of the unborn with legislation
Are pro gay rights

What? These are PROGRESSIVE positions. They have no business in the Republican Party. And, now, one of them is challenging me for the Republican endorsement.

Will you help me work to defeat the Ron Paul Libertarians . . . the one who says that he wishes Israel does not exist? Any amount from $25 to the legal maximum of $2500 will strengthen our position against such wrongful positions.
Friends and family, it is now time for you to get involved! Please attend your local Republican meetings. Take on leadership positions in the Republican Party, and, run for office. Do not turn the leadership of our beloved Country to liberals, progressives, and radical Islamists!

To remind you, I am a true conservative who will adhere strictly to being a proponent of:

• America the Beautiful
• Strong Homeland Security
• Pro-Life
• Traditional Marriage
• Israel
• Cutting Spending
• A 10% Tax Rate
• A Balanced Budget
• Our cherished US Constitution
• Fighting Radical Islamism
• Individual Responsibility

I am dedicated to standing for and protecting these values. We should be grateful to the TSA, who protects us day in and day out . . . we shouldn’t want to get rid of it. We must protect life, and protect it with legislation, as I will do. We must oppose gay rights legislation. If we do not have a strong moral foundation, it does not matter what economic policy you put on top of it, it will crumble. That is part of what is wrong with this Country today . . . our moral foundation is crumbling.

We must support our ally and friend Israel. This is in direct contrast to Keith Ellison, who always wants to help the Palestinians.

It is also critical that WE CUT SPENDING!!! The United States has the largest budget in the world, and is now in debt to the tune of $16,000,000,000,000.00! This reveals gross mismanagement!

We must also fight radical Islamism. We need to curb immigration, and enforce the laws on our books.

And, people need to get back to work, and, we need to keep businesses in the United States. With all due respect, people need to take themselves off of unemployment. They need to accept whatever job they can get, while they are looking for other work. And, business owners need to stop taking their businesses out of the US. Patriots need to keep their businesses in the US, and employ US workers.

So, we have a long haul ahead of us. I am with you in it, and, I ask you to stay on this journey with me, until we get the job done. For the record, I often win long shots.

So, my fellow Patriots, I’m turning to YOU to help me defeat Keith Ellison and the Ron Paul Libertarians. Will you help me in my campaign by making a contribution of whatever amount you are able? Any amount, from $25, $50, $100, $250, or $2500 will greatly help me in my efforts to fight back against Ellison and reclaim a seat in Congress for those who believe in the Constitution and who have America’s best interests at heart.

Please use the enclosed envelope to rush your donation to my campaign. You may also contribute at Your generous contribution will bring my campaign that much closer to unseating Ellison and installing a devoted patriot into Congress.

Thank you for your time and for standing with me for the U.S. Constitution and America’s national security.

Thank you, and God Bless You, Minnesota, and America!

Yours in freedom,

Lynne Torgerson
Candidate for United States Congress

P.S. To be sure we are better positioned for victory against this radical incumbent, we will need sacrifice and participation from fellow patriots like YOU. Will you help me in my goal of defeating Keith Ellison by making a contribution of $25, $50, $100, or $250 to my campaign TODAY?

You may contribute via mailing us a donation in envelope at the address below, or, on line a

Lynne Torgerson covers a number of topics in this Republican Roundtable:

An Interview with Alan Robeke covering various issues:

ACLU absolutely contorts freedom of religion for its own purpose

I just received an email from Mr. Romero of the ACLU>  The ACLU has absolutely contorted freedom of religion in order to promote its head's own purpose.  Mr. Romero, the head of ACLU, a practicing homosexual, has alleged that religious extremists are infringing upon the rights of same sex couples, and, upon contraception!  First of all, everyone evidently needs to be reminded:  there is no constitutional right to engage in homosexual behavior.  That has already been decided by the US Supreme Court.  Further, really? Catholics are infringing upon contraception!?!  The First Amendment prohibits the GOVERNMENT from infringing upon people's rights to practice their religion however they choose.  The Catholics have long had part of their faith that people should not use contraceptives.  Indeed, the Bible states that children are a gift from God.  So, under freedom of religion, the GOVERNMENT cannot tell Catholics to use contraceptives nor require them to pay for other people to be able to use them.  Now, the ACLU, which is supposed to be the premier defender of Constitutional rights, is wrongly claiming that the wall between Church and State prohibits "religious extremists" from infringing upon people's rights to use contraceptives!  Mr. Romero has completely turned the Constitution on its head in order to promote his own perverted purposes.  We are supposed to follow the Constitution--not contort it to serve our particular desires.  Mr. Romero should be ashamed of himself and he should be immediately removed from his post at the ACLU.  He has lost all integrity.  I have devoted my adult career to protecting the constitutional rights of all peoples, all races, nationalities and religions.  I am an expert in Constitutional law.  Mr. Romero is entirely wrong, and I suspect he knows it, and is taking his position anyway.

Support Lynne Torgerson for Congress!  She will protect your Constitutional rights!

Ellison says that America is the best place to be a muslim

Ellison says that America is the best place to be a muslim.  Well, of course it is!  It's because we have the US Constitution and because we don't have Sharia Law.  Sharia Law is the antithesis of the US Constitution.  Yet, Keith Ellison fails to say that the US Constitution should remain supreme over Sharia Law.  Look at the countries where Sharia Law is the law of the land.  Their countries are a mess.  The people are oppressed.  Keep Sharia Law out of America.  We have duly enacted federal, state and city laws.  People who come to the US should abide by our laws and not bring their own.

Ellison also said that he does not support preventing a nuclear Iran.  Lynne Torgerson does support preventing a nuclear Iran.

Support Lynne Torgerson for Congress!

We need the TSA and to fund it

We need the TSA and to fund it.  Of course we need to fund the TSA. We need the TSA. That is beyond question. Also, it performs police like functions. These are typically funded by the gov't. Rand Paul has it wrong. Why is just trying to stir up trouble?  The Pauls act like they are funded by George Soros.

Ellison wants corporate money out of politics so that only Unions can buy elections

Ellison wants corporate money out of politics so that only Unions can buy elections.

The United States Supreme Court decided that corporations can contribute to political actions committees, which committees can support or work to defeat candidates.  Ellison does not like this.  Evidently, he only wants Unions to be able to influence elections with millions of dollars.  That does not seem like a level playing field.  Ellison wants a constitutional amendment to prohibit corporate dollars' involvement in politics. Work to defeat Keith Ellison.  Support Lynne Torgerson for Congress.  She supports the US Supreme Court decision.

Ellison is glad the ban on Sharia Law failed and wants children and illegal aliens to be able to vote

     Ellison is glad the ban on Sharia Law failed.  He also wants children to be able to vote.  And, given that he does not support requiring ID to vote, would also allow illegal aliens to vote, as well as fraud to occur, people being able to vote more than once, etc. 

     Conservatives need to get involved now.   There are more than enough conservatives in the 5th Congressional District to win this election.  Get to your caucuses this coming February 7, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.  Support Lynne Torgerson for Congress.  Thank you.

No Compromise PAC, Lynne Torgerson's Page

There is an excellent new organization, No Compromise PAC.  Please check out the page for

Lynne Torgerson for Congress:

This PAC has the right values!  Thank you!

Keith Ellison opposes even economic sanctions to stop a nuclear Iran

True to his radical Islamist anti American paradigm, Keith Ellison has voted NO to imposing economic sanctions against Iran to prevent a nuclear Iran.  This is in contrast to the support for such a measure by even President Obama, Senator Al Franken, and Senator Amy Klobuchar.  Thus, Keith Ellison clearly is not even in line with your standard Democrat elected officials.  Support Lynne Torgerson for Congress, the only candidate in this race who has the backbone to expose Keith Ellison for what he actually stands for.

Republican Jewish Coalition's Mark Miller's Letter to the Editor Regarding the Inappropriateness of Ron Paul

Dear Editor,

In the Opinion Exchange of the January 6 edition of the Star Tribune, "In praise of three non-Romneys," Brian Thiel claims that Congressman Ron Paul's ideology and world view are "sensible," and asks, "What is with this unfaltering support for Israel and anything Christian, anyway?" Moreover, he cannot understand why so many Republicans reject Congressman Paul's foreign policy. To help him understand, I refer him to the article in (December 28, 2011), in which a former senior aide to Mr. Paul, Eric Dondero, revealed that on numerous occasions over a 12-year period Paul said that he "wished the Israeli state did not exist at all," that "Israel is more trouble than it is worth," and that he "supported the Palestinians' calls for the abolition of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs."  The vast majority of Republicans reject Ron Paul's ideology because it is morally and intellectually bankrupt, and because Paul simply does not comprehend that support for Israel is in America's military, diplomatic, and economic best interests.

Mark R. Miller, Attorney
