This year’s Scholarship recipient is Hannah Etter. Hannah is planning to attend Sam Houston State University pursuing a double major in Criminal Justice and Psychology.
Hannah impressed us with her enthusiasm and cheerful nature when she volunteered to help with setup for the Veteran’s Day lunch last year. She fulfilled her requirements for HLRW’s scholarship by interviewing John Ferguson, ex-city councilman. She is a darling girl, and we wish her well.

Hello everyone! This is a personal invitation to join us for dinner this Tuesday evening, May 9th, 6-7:30pm, at the Sunrise Beach Civic Center. One of our own members (who cooks great!) will be making a Spaghetti and Meatball dinner for us! Yummy!! Bring your spouse.
Guest speaker, Christin Bentley, State Republican Executive Committee, SD-1, will be giving a legislative update on the Republican Party of Texas priority to protect children from sexual grooming in our schools and communities.
“Any information submitted to the Federal Government by a party to a covered transaction in accordance with this Act, as well as any information the Federal Government may create relating to review of the covered transaction, is exempt from disclosure under section 552 of title 5, United States Code (commonly referred to as the ‘Freedom of Information Act.)’ – Excerpt from RESTRICT Act (S. 686)
The RESTRICT Act, in name alone, serves as an alarm.
While it does ban TikTok, the RESTRICT Act also gives non-elected government bureaucrats, and the money they are beholden to, carte blanch permission to label and off-line any form or system of communication they deem a national security threat. According to the bill, violators accessing those applications, including the use of VPN services, risk penalty of up to a $1,000,000 fine, twenty (20) years in Federal Prison, and the forfeiture of all property to the United States government.
With seemingly every Federal agency in America acting against the interest of free speech and Constitutional rights, are legislators in Washington unable to foresee the blatant risks of this bill? – The Sedition Acts V2, Gregory Christian Porter, April 18th
Don’t miss guest speaker, Gregory Porter, Co-Founder, Texas Liberty Council, give a powerful presentation on the topic of digital identification and currency!
Data Privacy: The Frontier of Liberty
“Without privacy, we have no liberty.”
At a time when corporate media propagate seeds of divisibility, a new paradigm of discrimination is masquerading among us. The precipice of tyranny we face extends far beyond the hypocrisy of hate speech, military aggression, and global corporation collusion with seemingly all world governments. Today, the biggest threat to human Liberty may be corporate access to personal data combined with a unique digital identifier for every citizen. ” -Gregory Porter, Texas Liberty Council

Today, Congress votes to protect abortion survivors in a major reversal. We’re taking urgent action! The following email was sent from Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel.
“It was one of the evilest bills we’ve ever seen. Today is a critical deadline to DEFEAT it.
One state passed a law that could allow babies to be killed up to 28 days AFTER birth. By using the word “perinatal” (which is the period that includes up to a month after a baby is born) instead of “prenatal” (before birth), the law literally legalizes infanticide.
We warned of the absolute horrors this Planned Parenthood-sponsored bill would unleash. Now, as new legislative sessions open, other states WILL ATTEMPT TO LEGALIZE infanticide.
We’ve taken action, not only filing FOIAs against California Governor Newsom over this first-in-the-nation barbaric bill, but we’ve been aggressively fighting on Capitol Hill.
TODAY, pro-life Members of Congress have scheduled a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. For years, Pelosi did Planned Parenthood’s bidding and blocked the vote, BUT NOT TODAY.
This bill would REQUIRE doctors to administer lifesaving medical care to any baby who is born, including abortion survivors. But we urgently need you to take action with us BEFORE today’s vote.
Happy New Year Llano County Republicans! We hope 2023 brings you many blessings. We are expecting great things to happen in 2023!
Please help us avoid a “first of year financial scramble” by renewing your Annual Membership dues today. Any additional donations you can manage are most welcome! Thank you for your generosity. Your continued support is GREATLY appreciated and will help HLRW women who are committed to serving God, Country, and Community, fulfill HLRW Objectives:
To work for the election of the Republican Party’s nominees.
To promote an informed electorate through political education.
To increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government through active political participation.
To foster loyalty to the Republican Party and to promote its ideals.
Sharing with you a post from Wallbuilders.com, January 11, 2021.
For many modern Americans it might be surprising to learn that one of the first national mottos and flags was “an appeal to Heaven.” Where did this phrase originate, and why did the Americans identify themselves with it?
To understand the meaning behind the Pinetree Flag we must go back to John Locke’s influential Second Treatise of Government (1690). In this book, the famed philosopher explains that when a government becomes so oppressive and tyrannical that there no longer remains any legal remedy for citizens, they can appeal to Heaven and then resist that tyrannical government through a revolution. Locke turned to the Bible to explain his argument:(click here to read more)

Thank you, Llano Junior High School Band students, for your patriotic music. It was inspiring! Thank you to the lovely HLRW Members and volunteers who helped make this a very special occasion!

Sichan Siv, international best-selling author of “Golden Bones: An Extraordinary Journey from Hell to Cambodia to a New Life in America”
While the United States battled the Communists of North Vietnam in the 1960s and ’70s, the neighboring country of Cambodia was attacked from within by dictator Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. The Khmer Rouge imprisoned, enslaved, and murdered the educated and intellectual members of the population, resulting in the harrowing “killing fields”–rice paddies where the harvest yielded nothing but millions of skulls.
Young Sichan Siv–a target since he was a university graduate–was told by his mother to run and “never give up hope!” Captured and put to work in a slave labor camp, Siv knew it was only a matter of time before he would be worked to death–or killed. With a daring escape from a logging truck and a desperate run for freedom through the jungle, including falling into a dreaded pungi pit, Siv finally came upon a colorfully dressed farmer who said, “Welcome to Thailand.”
He spent months teaching English in a refugee camp in Thailand while regaining his strength, eventually Siv was allowed entry into the United States. Upon his arrival in the U.S., Siv kept striving. Eventually rising to become a U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Siv returned with great trepidation to the killing fields of Cambodia in 1992 as a senior representative of the U.S. government. It was an emotionally overwhelming visit.
An acceptable form of photo ID. For voters between the ages of 18-69, the IDs cannot be expired for more than 4 years. For voters aged over 70, any of the above valid ID’s can be expired for more than 4 years!
List of Republican Candidates. HLRW has provided an important list of Republican Candidates to vote for (see below). Print this handy list out and take it with you to the polls. Yes, it is permissible! And be sure you do not leave any candidate unchecked!
We have less than a week left to tell Biden not to change the definition of “sex”! For the past 55 days activists have been bombarding the Biden administration with comments defying his radical, incoherent gender ideology.
Over 50,000 comments have been submitted and over 20% of those comments have been Heritage Action activists.
This is a fantastic number and it gives us the momentum we need to keep pressuring the administration to repeal this rule.
Keep going! We have limited time before this rule takes effect. Tell Biden to stop, HERE!
Share this link and spread the word. We need to bring the HEAT!
Thank you for your participation.

As we wrap up our summer break, we are having a few get togethers. We have experienced a good attendance at our other summer functions and gained new members and am looking forward to getting to know you all better.
Next week we will be having a last summer fling with 2 game days- one to be held be at the new and improved Llano Library meeting room on August 9th Tuesday at noon to 1:30 and the following week on Thursday the 18th at the Kingsland library from 6:30-8 pm.
This has been a difficult year with a not to pleasant beginning, but we have seen growth in areas we never thought possible. I am reminded of the scripture “a house divided cannot stand” so ladies we need to unify and come together for a common goal of not only electing Republican candidates but informing our friends, neighbors, and family about how to make their voice heard thru education, good articles, flash legislation updates, and understanding what bills mean. As an election judge for several years the comments I hear the most are “what does this mean, and I don’t know any of these people.”
This is our goal to make informed voters in our county. We must garner our talents to be effective in our county. Will you join us in this venture? Even if you only have a limited amount of time just sharing articles or videos can help on Facebook, Trump Social or next door.
We have an awesome PR person, Jessica Grabert, who will help any of us with any media questions and teach us how to network with each other so we can grow and show this county how we stand together in this fight. Thank you, Annette Sandoval, for getting us 100 pocket constitutions from Hillsdale College. Who would like to do the same?
Please consider coming and having a good time and getting to meet fellow fighters for freedom! If we don’t make a difference in Llano who will?
Kirk Cameron and publisher BRAVE BOOKS are encouraging libraries across America to hold a SEE YOU AT THE LIBRARY event on August 5th to read books which teach children to love God and love America! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 Llano Library will have this event! We will have arts and crafts (making American flags out of popsicle sticks, etc) and we will be reading lots of BRAVE BOOKS and Bible stories! I rented the library from 10am-5pm but not sure of the exact time. We need musicians, food and craft donations and/or a little money to help. We’d like lord of adults to be present, too! Please spread the word, especially to anyone with children! Let’s make this a great event for Llano Library!!
