Featured book for this week is Hard Measures: How Agressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives, written by Jose A. Rodriguez, Jr., the man who, in the wake of September 11, led all U.S. counterterrorism operations and oversaw the use of those procedures—procedures that obtained vital and timely intelligence and helped safeguard the nation from future attacks.

It’s not too late to attend TFRW’s GOTV Workshop:


A reminder to all members — please turn in any Campaign hours you have accumulated during the past three months (the third quarter of the year) to Holly Bishop, VP Campaign Activities at (817) 423-8923 or email to  It is important that all FWRW members provide an accurate count of all hours that we have spent on campaign activities each quarter, so that the information can be forwarded to the Texas Federation of Republican Women to be included in the statewide compilation. Every year, this data provides tangible evidence of the vital importance of Republican women throughout Texas and the strength and value of their volunteer efforts in our grassroots elections process.

If you have any questions about which types of activities qualify as “campaign hours,” contact Holly Bishop or go to the TFRW link, “Policy for Counting Campaign Hours,” by clicking HERE.


The Fort Worth Republican Women’s annual Christmas luncheon is scheduled for Friday, December 7.  This event is one of the highlights of our club each year, and we hope to have much to celebrate at our 2012 event!  Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details!
