November 6 Meeting: John Pudner

John Pudner, president of Take Back Our Republic Action Fund, spoke at the November 6, 2023 meeting of Fox Valley Initiative in Appleton, Wisconsin.

Thirty-five people attended the November 6 meeting of Fox Valley Initiative, held at Freedom Project Academy in Appleton, to hear a presentation by John Pudner, president of Take Back Our Republic Action Fund. He addressed several aspects of election integrity — including a couple interesting stories about election fraud in other states — and made the case for a special type of ranked choice voting known as Final Five Voting.

Election Integrity in Wisconsin

The statewide voter registration list maintained by the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) includes 7,498,167 voters. But according to the 2020 United States Census, there are only 4,612,300 adults living in Wisconsin. This means that there are 2,885,867 more voters on the WEC’s registration list, than there are people of voting age living in Wisconsin.

Here's an Alternative to Woke Beer!

Are you proud to be a conservative ... and a beer drinker?

Check out this 100% Woke-Free™ American Beer - Made In America!

According to, “The boycott against Bud Light created an opportunity for new competitors to move into the crowded beer market. Seth Weathers stepped up and launched his own brew, Conservative Dad’s Ultra Right Beer, in April after the woke controversy broke out to give consumers an alternative.”

You can visit the Ultra Right Beer website here: You can order a 6-pack for $19.99 (be prepared to wait a month or so). That’s not cheap ... but maybe acting on your principles is worth it? You can also order a lot of official merchandise ... probably delivered more quickly!

Watch this video clip to learn more. And if you do order the beer, we’d love to hear about it!
