of us as adults have trouble just understanding what an APP is much
less developing one! In the 2012 election, the
development of an APP by the Obama campaign provided him with a great

President's Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) was created by an
Executive Order by Bill Clinton i993. The goal was to take UN
Agenda 21, incorporate it into all Federal Government
Departments which then would implement it into all segments
American society. The PCSD ended in 1999 but it
goal of setting the foundations of USA version of Agenda 21 called
21-Sustainable America is embedded in all Federal Government
Departments and is responsible for all the problems that we are
experiencing today with Regional Planning, Common
Comprehensive Planning/Smart Growth aka Local Agenda 21 and
Comprehensive Immigration Reform. The PCSD site is still up and
accessible with all of their reports still posted. If you
the time for a quick review you will see the much of the same language
that is being used in Common Core and Regional Planning
documents. If you take the time for a closer look
see how dug in deep Agenda 21 is.

We Want You!!!
As we head into 2013 we want you to join or rejoin ORWO as we make
history. We are looking for a few “Good Women”!
How do we hold our meetings?
Members are updated by email frequently
regarding informative political topics. This provides a vehicle
for members to exchange information on what is happening in their areas
and offers the ability to be informed of statewide political
activities, whether it is local or national information.
To conduct meetings we have a guest speaker who is known in their
field film a three to five minute video or make their
presentation with the members on a free conference call. If a
video is made, an email is sent to the membership advising them of the
link for the scheduled video. The video is typically placed on
YouTube a week in advance of the meeting. A conference call is
scheduled shortly after the video is posted, so the
members can discuss the information in the video.
During the same time, an email is sent asking if anyone has
any information about political events going on in their area
that they want time to discuss during the call. These items are
then placed on the agenda. A reminder is
sent out shortly before the meeting about the upcoming conference call
which also includes an agenda, the minutes of the previous meeting
and the treasurer report. The conference call number and an
access code are also included in this email. The conference call is
generally scheduled for 3:30pm Sunday afternoon and generally lasts for
a half-hour. If the guest speaker is going
to make a presentation by a conference call then a time is organized
that is satisfactory to all parties. Our speakers to date have
been the Ohio Party Chairman, Governor Kasich, Attorney General Mike
DeWine and other political members.
mission of the club is to provide a networking community of like-minded
women to share information and ideas on political issues, principles
and ethics and the ability for their promotion of the ability to
inter-change ideas and experiences without the travel and time
constraints of a traditional club.

only about 3 minute but are excellent. Fox News video

implemented. It is followed by 5 short videos detailing different
aspects of the system. Really very interesting and

You may want to look her up on YouTube. She retired recently as a
professional figure skater. I keep trying to find an effective means to
communicate better with one another. This online club is the only one
in the nation. If you have ideas on how to make the online club more
effective please share them with me & each other. Other States
would like to have an online club. We need your input & I will
share it with the National Federation of Republican Women at their
board mtg. in March.
Here are the recommendations:
It was suggested on the
conference call today, that by giving everyone the contact list of the
Ohio republican women online group (ORWO) it would provide the group
with the ability to share information . The list is attached.
It is with the intent that if the members start using the social media
capabilities or emails by sending out information to each other it
would provide a means of communicating within the group. If you have
something that you think would be of interest to other republican women
please send them the info.
are working on having the Attorney General office create a video next
month on a subject matter that would be of interest. These videos will
only be about 3 to 4 minutes long. This is to let you know what is
happening and then if you are interested you can go on the internet to
find more information.
Along with the ongoing
between the members, we are going to schedule a conference monthly

Our first meeting will be ready shortly & you will see it on
You Tube for about a week. I will send you the password to view it. The
subject will be AGENDA 21. You may be asking what is AGENDA 21? This is
an actual UN plan, signed by President George H Bush in 1992 along with
178 world leaders. Agenda 21 is the action plan to inventory and
control all land, water, mineral, plants, animals, all construction,
all means of production, information, energy and human beings in the
world. It is the plan for the world for the 21st century. In 1993
President Clinton created the President Council on Sustainable
Development for the sole purpose of controlling everyone through
federal rules, regulations & grants.

months. Chairman Bennett video in October was the last one
that was done. I tried to get another video prepared but
everyone I talked with, were still reeling from the November 6 election
results. We then found ourselves in the midst of
the holiday season.
In 2013, I will put the time
in getting the online club to be more productive. I
am suggesting that we have a 3 to 4 minute video done every other month
followed with a conference call. The video would be put on
You Tube and could be seen by the membership for a week. I
would send the members an email announcing the week that it would be
available. After viewing the video members could email the
membership with questions or suggestions. A few days after
the video if over, I would arrange a conference call and email you with
a suggested time.
I would like to hear from you

I have been talking with elected State
officials and University of Cincinnati students about producing videos

CANDIDATE PAUL RYAN
SPEAKS IN CLERMONT COUNTY
I had the privilege to
rally held at the Clermont County Fairgrounds in Owensville, on
September 12. GOP vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan spoke
to an enthusiastic crowd estimated at 3,500.
Also in attendance were
following: Governor Kasich, Jane Portman (wife of Senator Rob
Portman) Brad Wenstrup, candidate for congress, Tim Rudd, Chairman of
Clermont County Republican Party, and a host of other local officials.
There was also a terrific
musical performance by John Michael Montgomery and his band.
Ryan reminded us that In the face of such tragedy as had occurred in
Libya, that the world desperately needs American leadership.
"The administration sent
signals to those who attacked our embassy in Egypt and mixed signals to
the world. I want to be clear, it is never too early for the United
States to condemn attacks on Americans, on our properties, and to
defend our values," he said.
Ryan also said Ohio’s
energy reserves should be tapped to produce jobs.
He emphasized that it is
imperative that government spending be reduced. We cannot
keep spending money we do not have. We have to cut spending
and get the deficit under control.
The loudest cheers came
Ryan said, "Our rights came from God, not from government - that's the
idea of America”.
candidate Paul Ryan emphasized that this is the election that
counts. This is the big one. We need to work to get
our candidates elected. We need to get our message
out. We need to change the course of this country.
We need Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
We need your vote, and your support.
