What does RIRA stand for?

At the core of the Rhode Island Republican Assembly is the proposition that it is the duty of the public servant to place the common good ahead of his own.

  • This most basic requirement of good government has been lacking in Rhode Island for quite some time.
  • As conservatives, we demand of our leaders a superior level of honesty, integrity, and respect for the law.

  • To watchdog elected officials and insure their adherence to conservative Republican principles.

The Republican Wing of the Republican Party
  • The more things change the more they remain the same. The American left has not changed. Those that are in Ferguson today rioting and looting in the name of social justice—the New Black Panthers are on the scene demanding death for the policeman involved—are merely the descendants of all those kids from 1970. And let it be noted that the vast majority of those kids in 1970 were white middle-class kids who launched a wave of violence in the spring and summer of 1970 because they objected to American foreign policy. Say again, American foreign policy. . .

  • In what follows, I will first give Warren’s “commandment,” and then explain how each so-called commandment cannot be implemented without official state violence and coercion. I emphasize that I am not going to use hyperbole or paint Warren in a false light. I’m sure she is a nice person when one meets her. My point is not that Warren is nice or nasty, but rather that she espouses a political economy that is based on political favors for some coupled with fierce intolerance toward many. . .

  • It was the focus of the film The Social Network, but critics say that Facebook has become a political network — one that is two-faced and facing left. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has long been pushing amnesty and targeting politicians who oppose it. Now, warns American Thinker’s Jonathon Moseley, Facebook is going so far as to block Republican activism from its website and may use social-network manipulation to turn out the vote for liberal candidates.

  • After a few months had passed, I wrote Gen. J. F. B. Marshall, at that time treasurer of the Hampton Institute, and put our condition before him, telling him that there was an abandoned farm about a mile from the town of Tuskegee in the market which I could secure at a very cheap price for our institution. As I had absolutely no money with which to make the first payment on the farm, I summoned the courage to ask Gen. Marshall to lend me $500 with which to make the first payment. To my surprise a letter came back in a few days enclosing a check for $500. A contract was made for the purchase of the farm, which at that time consisted of 100 acres. Subsequent purchases and gifts of adjacent lands have increased the number of acres at this place to 700, and this is the present site of the Tuskegee Institute. . .

  • Is World War IV on the verge of beginning? With President Obama in the role of the reluctant leader whose actions have invited global catastrophe? What do World War I, World War II, the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, and Afghanistan all have in common? All began with events that were far from American shores, events that went on for years or decades before a trigger-pulling, explosive event that launched the war in question. And in each and every case as events proceeded there was a segment of the American population of the day, sometimes a majority, that looked at what was happening and simply didn’t want to get involved. Believing — always wrongly, as it would turn out — that the events in motion could never involve them if they simply chose to not involve themselves.

  • We at the National Federation of Republican Assemblies are pleased to join our newest chapter, Alaska Republican Assembly, endorsing Joe Miller for U.S. Senate. We are five days from the primary in Alaska, and the race is definitely winnable for Joe Miller. In the last weeks, Joe has surged 10 points in the polls against his primary opponents, and that has not escaped their attention. . .

  • The St. Johns County Republican Assembly, chartered by the NFRA, at its 2014 Convention has determined that the following candidates best represent the conservative principles of the NFRA. We have heard from these candidates many times in multiple forums, we have reviewed their campaign websites and have asked them to fill out questionnaires on where they stand on the issues. Based on all of these factors and a vote of the membership, these candidate were acclaimed to be best aligned with the conservative principles of the NFRA:

  • UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) has always denied links to Palestinian terrorism, or downplayed the significance of the relationship. As UNRWA’s former Commissioner, Peter Hansen, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in October 2004, “I am sure that there are Hamas members on the UNRWA payroll, and I don’t see that as a crime.”

About the Rhode Island Republican Assembly

The RIRA is a private membership organization of Republican activists who work to promote conservative ideals within the Republican Party of Rhode Island. Most of our members are also active members of the Rhode Island Republican State Central Committee and/or of the various Republican city and town committees throughout the state. Among other things, the RIRA hosts monthly dinner meetings, where like-minded conservatives discuss current events, debate intra-party issues, formulate political strategies, as well as hear from select conservative speakers.
