Change is Needed Now in the Leadership of the New Mexico Republican Party
I ran across an article yesterday in the Santa Fe New Mexican written by Milan Simonich. He brings up many of the points I have been writing about for years. I am a registered Independent because of the dysfunction of the Republican Party, I made that change shortly after we moved to New Mexico in 1995. I saw a state were the Democrats ruled, the party was very corrupt and the Republican’s were weak to fight the corruption, no back bone. The Republican’s continue to put up many very weak candidates, some who have never won an election or others that keep running for election time and time again, the tread has worn off their shoes. I hear complaints all the time about the head of the GOP, Steve Pearce. I have called for new leadership for the past year. I am not a Pearce fan. I was with other board members of the ARC of New Mexico years ago that went to Washington D.C. at our expense and we had set meetings with Pearce and all others that represented New Mexico at that time. Pearce is the only one that failed us, he never showed for our meeting as his aid said, “He’s sorry he forgot but he is on the golf course.” AWFUL! We had a great meetings with Heather Wilson, Pete Domenici and Jeff Bingaman. In fact, Heather Wilson spent a lot of time with me and a young lady from Albuquerque that came with us to ask for help for her brother. Heather showed a lot of heart, Pearce was a no show. I have heard from many that have called his office in the past and never get the help that they asked for or a return phone call. One Vietnam War Vet suffering from PTSD, told me he never got an answer by phone he just got a form letter from Pearce. Ranchers in Catron County asked for his help years ago on ther wolf situation and he said he would help them, but he never did. For his radio interviews I would schedule with him on KKIM Radio he was seldom on time. So as you can see, I personally have not experienced any leadership qualities from Pearce. After November’s election results Eddie Aragon of KIVA Radio, gave Pearce a run for his money as Chairman of the Party, and there was a mess up with the voting machines and they voted again and Pearce retained the bosses seat. There are many good elected Republicans in New Mexico, just not enough. The Dems will continue to rule New Mexico until the Republican’s get a new leader. If they do not, a Third Party maybe coming sooner than later.
There is a chance that Trump will start a third party, as the National GOP is just as bad. Trump will be a force in America and Eddie Aragon of owner of KIVA Radio is gaining steam with New Mexico Republican’s and there could be a collision coming and maybe Eddy will start a third party?
In all my years in radio, 42, and reporting news here at FGGAM I have never seen a weaker state party than THE New Mexico GOP. I have served in Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Indiana and in New Mexico since 1995.
It seems to me the ‘Republican Elite’ in New Mexico are getting a wake up call but they are sleeping through the alarm.
My Post from Dec. 8th after the vote for New Mexico Republican Party Chairman:
The Albuquerque Journal is reporting on the NM GOP Party Chairman Race: The party reported two different tallies of the vote total, and one candidate said a new election should be called. Steve Pearce (pictured standing by U.S. Flag) won both times, FIRST TIME BY JUST ONE VOTE, Beating out Radio personality Eddie Aragon (pictured at very top) of Rock of Talk radio station in Albuquerque. I wrote the other day about Eddie was the guy to watch in this race as many, many folks, common folk, are not happy with the leadership of Pearce. In the second count, Pearce beat Eddie by 29 votes.
In a brief interview with the Journal, Pearce said the final vote totals are accurate.
“There’s not going to be another state central committee meeting and another vote,” Pearce said.
This certainly will not help the unity of the GOP party in New Mexico. Is it right for Chairman Pearce to just say, “there will not be another vote” WOW! That is rather COLD! What is the problem of voting again? You gotta love those ‘coding errors’
The election was held online and closed to public viewing. NOT GOOD!
To keep this election clean, they should vote again, that’s my two cents!
Here is the Press Release by the NM GOP:
Jonathan Cahn of ‘The Harbinger II: The Return’ Answers the Questions ‘Where Are We Now? What Lies Ahead for America?’
Best-Selling Author Provides Answers for Believers
NEW YORK — A lot of believers are confused, discouraged, angry and fearful. When it comes to political America, they are asking what happened, where we are now and what is ahead. In a recent video message, Jonathan Cahn, known worldwide as the creator of one of the year’s biggest publishing successes, “The Harbinger II: The Return speaks to believers and answers those questions.
“We have had four years of a conservative administration,” said Cahn. “We have had a president whose policies were the most pro-life in history. President Trump stood against the killing of the unborn, for religious liberty, for Christian education. He appointed judges and supreme court justices who would be more likely to stand for biblical and traditional values. He opened the door for Christian ministers and leaders to give him counsel. He stood strongly for the nation of Israel by policy — he was the most pro Israel president in history. President Trump became the first world leader since ancient times to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He, along with the Republicans in Congress, sought to hold back a flood of anti-biblical legislation and movements from overtaking America.”
But now where are we? What do we do? Said Cahn, “There are those who say that believers should have nothing to do with the government or politics. On the other hand, there are those who act like the political realm is our ultimate realm and our ultimate fight even if it means calling for an American Civil War. Both are wrong. Messiah said you are the light of the world. The light has to shine. It has to affect and impact the world around it. As the light of God, we are to address, touch, affect and impact every realm – and that includes cultural and political realms.
“We should do everything we can to shine the light of God on the political realm. But there is a balance. Messiah also said that we are in the world but not of the world. And he said my kingdom is not of this world. We have to remember the fact that this world is neither our home nor our kingdom. We are to touch and minister to this world but remember that we are not of it. We are of a different and higher kingdom — a higher cause, a higher fight, a higher purpose, a higher mission.”
Cahn explained that believers have to come back to their first love: God. “We should support whatever will support the ends of God,” said Cahn. “But no earthly agenda or kingdom or government or person is that and we are to pray for and fight for God’s purposes. After all is said and done, we have to remember that His ways are higher than ours, no matter who it is that sits in the White House in our nation’s capital — the most important thing is Who sits on the throne of heaven.”
In his book, “The Paradigm,” Cahn spoke of Donald Trump as Jehu. “Jehu was a wild impulsive man and a fighter. But he was raised by God to be used to oppose an ungodly administration and anti-God government. But if you read “The Paradigm,” you will also see that Jehu was not the answer. And there were warnings given. He was used in what could have been the answer. His reign was a reprieve, a window of time in which revival could have come. But as far as we know, revival never came.”
In the “Harbinger II,” Cahn wrote, “In these past four years, with all the victories in the political realm, we have not seen a parallel victory in the realm of revival of America as a nation. It hasn’t moved closer to God as a nation. It has moved farther away: spiritually, culturally, morally. America has continued its race to judgment. The window is not the answer. But it is the means to an answer. The window is given for revival. Without revival, without returning to God, America is lost.”
And now, according to Cahn, the political realm is set to coalesce — to converge with those spiritual, cultural, social, and moral forces that are seeking to seal America’s fall from God. Cahn points out to the very present danger that now threatens the free exercise of faith, religious liberty, ministry, the right of parents to determine the upbringing of their children, the right to life, the right of conscience, and the future of America itself. Cahn shares what can address that threat: from the stand and prayers of God’s people and the hand of God. Pivotal as well will be the coming election in the state of Georgia.
“Pray for those two Senate races. The only thing in the political realm that can and will hold back the radical agenda are the two Senate votes in Georgia. If the Republicans lose these two seats, they will lose the Senate and that is the entire government. Pray as fervently for the will and hands of God. If you live in the state of Georgia, pray as never before and vote.”
In the “Harbinger,” Cahn wrote of the biblical template of national judgment. It was that template that lead Cahn to watch and mark the year 2020 as the year of potential great shakings. That led him to set the “Harbinger II” to be published in the same year, 2020.
“We are there,” Cahn said. “What lies ahead? We will either see continued shakings and judgment and America’s decline and ultimate fall, or the sealing of Americas apostasy and the coming of persecution. And it can be that both of these things will take place at the same time.
“What is the only good scenario for America? There’s only one. Revival. Revival can only begin with that one thing: repentance. The people of God can lead in revival. We must each commit to praying for revival as never before. But not only praying for revival, but actually to begin to live in true revival.
“Remember who you are. You are the light of this world. You don’t fear the darkness. You don’t hide from the darkness. You don’t give into the darkness. You shine your light into the darkness and you overcome the darkness. And if the dark gets darker, that’s your cue that it is time as the light of God to shine even more brightly, even more strong, more uncompromised, more pure, more bold and more revolutionary. The darkness cannot stop the light if that light will shine. The darkness will only magnify the light. It may be more challenging to shine, but the light that shines in the darkness is the light that lights up the world.
“Stand strong. Stand tall. Stand victorious. For the Lord says to you darkness will cover the nations. And the Lord will rise upon you. So arise and shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you in the name of Jesus, the anointed One, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Light of the world and the Lion of the tribe of Judah.”
