Chris Cillizza Makes the Case Against a Hillary Clinton 2024 Run

Word around cyberspace is that former First Lady, Senator and Democratic 2016 Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton might be running for president again in 2024.

CNN political commentator Chris Cillizza has outlined the case against another White House run by Hillary Clinton in 2024.

We will post his video below. We just wanted to say we are in agreement with Cillizza that we doubt that Hillary will run in 2024. Our reasoning and his are very much the same on this matter. The biggest reason we can think of is that it just doesn’t seem likely that the Democrats would nominate her again seeing as she lost to Trump in 2016. Even if as we believe Trump doesn’t run again. Why would the Democrats want Hillary to run again? We all might be mistaken here at the blog. But we are having a difficult time believing that if Biden doesn’t run in 2024, that the Democrats will pick a 76 year old Hillary to run. Our feeling is that if neither Trump or Biden are running that both parties would want to pick younger candidates to run. Especially since Trump and then four years later Biden both set new records as the oldest elected president’s in American history. The voters might decide that fresher and younger versus older is what the want in a president.

The Nuts and Bolts of INDY Republican’s Philosophy

Russell Kirk, Conservative Philosopher 

For sometime now we have all been wanting to elaborate more on our weltanschauung or philosophy of life that we mostly share as the authors of this blog. Specifically as it relates to the world of politics and everyday living. As you have all probably gathered at this point we consider ourselves conservative republicans, we are mostly religious and we are opposed to both Trumpism, and the whole woke idiot wing of the Democratic Party. We are staunch advocates, some might even say radical in our advocacy of open and good government. And in holding elected and unelected officials accountable to we the people 

It is not enough however merely to say what we oppose or even what we are for. An outlining of our general principles, and our views of the world is also needed. Previously we have given a brief primer of the general religious views that we at this blog follow. Important as it to us that we share our views towards the ultimate destiny of man, with all of you. We would be doing a disservice by ignoring the everyday world in which we all live. So with that we are all going to dive in right into INDY REPUBLICAN’s view of politics and existence.

The late, great President Ronald Reagan.

Why we are true conservatives, and why Trumpism is not conservative

Since the election of Donald Trump as President in 2016. With a few honorable exceptions such as Charlie Sykes, George Will, Mike Murphy, Bill Kristol, John Ziegler, Paul Ogden, Josh Claybourn, Adam Kinzinger, Liz Cheney, Michael Steele, SE Cupp, Mona Charen, and assorted others. Most of the so called spokesmen and politicians flying the conservative banner have sold out our principles and values to blindly follow the pied piper of communism & fascism Donald Trump.

A restatement of what most conservatives believe or said they believed until circa 2016 is in order. In the lifetime of everyone five years of age and older  at the time of the publication of this post, conservatives were said to oppose trade protectionism, support, defend and protect the constitution, and be zealous advocates of free speech. Sadly only a small minority of public figures professing to be conservatives have consistently stuck to these principles. 

The quotations we are about to share come from various politicians, academics, and activists who are generally considered conservative. From these quotes you will see how the leading conservative politicians and thinkers defined the general outlook of conservatives. True, like all of us they sometimes missed the mark and fell short of their rhetoric, that does not however invalidate the points that they make. After a careful review of what they have to say, it will be evident to all just how few politicians of both parties actually follow these ideals. We will compare and contrast how these rock ribbed conservative principles are the antithesis of the governing philosophy such as it is of most of our fellow lawmakers. We are spending so much time holding our fellow republicans feet to the fire, because in the words of political strategist Mike Murphy: “They have come into our church and have desecrated it.” An exorcism is in order and consider us the exorcist!

Senator Barry Goldwater 

Conservatives on the rule of law and the value of freedom:

“the conservative argues that freedom—moral, political, and economic—is the mark of high civilization; and servitude, under whatever name, is the mark of a barbarous or decadent order.”

“A good society is one which cherishes the highest degree of freedom consistent with order and justice.”

the conservative recognizes that freedom is possible only when order and justice prevail. Order means that there shall be honorable leadership, willingly recognized; and that law rules, not the whims of men. “Justice exists only between men whose mutual relations are governed by law…” (Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, Vol. 9, p. 382a).

“the conservative respects the political institutions and customs and traditions which he has inherited, particularly the Constitution of the United States and other great documents of our nation.”

Barry Goldwater “Great Ideas Today” 1962, publication of the Encyclopedia Britannica.

(Donald Trump and his enablers have constantly sought to undermine the rule of law. Whether it be unconstitutionally redirecting funds for a border wall against the explicit acts of congress, or Trump’s claim that he had total authority over the states decisions on when they could reopen because he was President, and his other too numerous to mention assaults on separation of powers, checks and balances, etc. For a conservative critique of Trump’s executive overreach check out this op-Ed by Charlie Sykes: https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/trump-s-total-authority-boast-should-ve-enraged-republicans-instead-ncna1184806 There is no way by any stretch of the imagination that one can argue that Trump showed respect for the Constitution of the United States. Barry Goldwater is rolling over in his grave about this!)

Conservatives on what the aim of politics should be:

““Politics is the art of the possible,” the conservative says: he thinks of political policies as intended to preserve order, justice, and freedom. The ideologue, on the contrary, thinks of politics as a revolutionary instrument for transforming society and even transforming human nature. In his march toward Utopia, the ideologue is merciless.”

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


(Kirk here points out how conservatives believe in protecting freedom and uplifting human nature. Whereas the extreme ideologues & utopian fanatics seek to use politics as a way to relentlessly pursue their own mad schemes. Here’s what then candidates Richard Nixon in 1968 and Ronald Reagan had to say about there views of working to repair the problems in American politics:

Richard Nixon 1968 GOP Convention:

“Without God's help and your help, we will surely fail; but with God's help and your help, we shall surely succeed.”

Ronald Reagan 1980 GOP Convention:

I ask you not simply to ‘Trust me,’” Reagan said, “but to trust your values—our values—and to hold me responsible for living up to them.”

Contrast this with Donald Trump’s remarks at the 2016 GOP Convention:

 Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it.”

Notice in contrast to Nixon’s reference to needing the American people and God’s help to succeed. Or Reagan saying for people not simply to trust him and our values as Americans and to hold him responsible for living up to them. Trump is asking people to put all there hopes on him, as he “alone can fix it”. Trump clearly has no conception of his limitations as a man or the limitations of the office of the presidency.

We true conservatives took issue with President’s Clinton and Obama’s constantly asking We the People to put excessive hopes in their ability to fix the nation. But as bad as they were on executive power, even they gave it a rest for a minute or two. With Trump it’s nothing but a never ending ego trip! If something coming from Clinton or Obama was not acceptable then having Trump do it doesn’t make it any better!

Conservatives on dogma and diversity of thought:

“Being neither  a religion nor an ideology, the body of opinion termed conservatism possesses no Holy Writ and no Das Kapital to provide dogmata.”

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


“For there exists no Model Conservative, and conservatism is the negation of ideology: it is a state of mind, a type of character, a way of looking at the civil social order. The attitude we call conservatism is sustained by a body of sentiments, rather than by a system of ideological dogmata. It is almost true that a conservative may be defined as a person who thinks himself such. The conservative movement or body of opinion can accommodate a considerable diversity of views on a good many subjects, there being no Test Act or Thirty-Nine Articles of the conservative creed.”

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


“In essence, the conservative person is simply one who finds the permanent things more pleasing than Chaos and Old Night. (Yet conservatives know, with Burke, that healthy “change is the means of our preservation.”) A people's historic continuity of experience, says the conservative, offers a guide to policy far better than the abstract designs of coffee-house philosophers. But of course there is more to the conservative persuasion than this general attitude.”

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


“In fine, the diversity of ways in which conservative views may find expression is itself proof that conservatism is no fixed ideology. What particular principles conservatives emphasize during any given time will vary with the circumstances and necessities of that era.” 

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


(Contrast this to Donald Trump equating membership in the same political party as him as being synonymous with obedience to him. A few years ago Trump tweeted out that: “Never Trump republicans are human scum”! Some replied: “Thanks for at least calling us human, Mister President!” Trump clearly falls into Russell Kirk’s definition of an ideologue, and fully supports an anti conservative litmus test and absolute agreement with the buffoonish orange man baby.)

Conservatives on Prudence and thoughtfulness:

“Any public measure ought to be judged by its probable long-run consequences, not merely by temporary advantage or popularity. Liberals and radicals, the conservative says, are imprudent: for they dash at their objectives without giving much heed to the risk of new abuses worse than the evils they hope to sweep away. As John Randolph of Roanoke put it, Providence moves slowly, but the devil always hurries. Human society being complex, remedies cannot be simple if they are to be efficacious. The conservative declares that he acts only after sufficient reflection, having weighed the consequences. Sudden and slashing reforms are as perilous as sudden and slashing surgery.”

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


Conservatives on the folly of utopian thinking:

“Human nature suffers irremediably from certain grave faults, the conservatives know. Man being imperfect, no perfect social order ever can be created.”

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


“The ideologues who promise the perfection of man and society have converted a great part of the twentieth-century world into a terrestrial hell.”

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


Conservatives on the dangers of centralized power centers:

“Conservatives uphold voluntary community, quite as they oppose involuntary collectivism. Although Americans have been attached strongly to privacy and private rights, they also have been a people conspicuous for a successful spirit of community. In a genuine community, the decisions most directly affecting the lives of citizens are made locally and voluntarily. Some of these functions are carried out by local political bodies, others by private associations: so long as they are kept local, and are marked by the general agreement of those affected, they constitute healthy community. But when these functions pass by default or usurpation to centralized authority, then community is in serious danger. Whatever is beneficent and prudent in modern democracy is made possible through cooperative volition. If, then, in the name of an abstract Democracy, the functions of community are transferred to distant political direction—why, real government by the consent of the governed gives way to a standardizing process hostile to freedom and human dignity.”

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


“The conservative perceives the need for prudent restraints upon power and upon human passions. Politically speaking, power is the ability to do as one likes, regardless of the wills of one's fellows. A state in which an individual or a small group are able to dominate the wills of their fellows without check is a despotism, whether it is called monarchical or aristocratic or democratic. When every person claims to be a power unto himself, then society falls into anarchy. Anarchy never lasts long, being intolerable for everyone, and contrary to the ineluctable fact that some persons are more strong and more clever than their neighbors. To anarchy there succeeds tyranny or oligarchy, in which power is monopolized by a very few. The conservative endeavors to so limit and balance political power that anarchy or tyranny may not arise. In every age, nevertheless, men and women are tempted to overthrow the limitations upon power, for the sake of some fancied temporary advantage. It is characteristic of the radical that he thinks of power as a force for good—so long as the power falls into his hands.”

— The Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk


(The above quotations were long, but necessary to show just how far removed from historical American conservative thought Trumpism truly is. For Donald Trump only seems to overpromise and underdeliver. Who can forget the great border wall we were supposed to get paid by Mexico. Surprise! We only mostly rebuilt some fencing and we, not Mexico has paid for it! There is also the matter of Trump’s never released tax returns, even though he has kept promising to release them for half a decade now! As for respecting local and state control, how can we forget his boasting that he had authority over states health policy, or how at the beginning of his presidency he bragged he would send the feds into Chicago to handle local law enforcement issues!

We would try to exhaustively list all of Trump’s opposition to the Constitution, rule of law and federalism. But we need to keep this post to under 250,000 words!)

Having shown the ways that Trumpism is the antithesis of conservatism. Here is a short list of our general principles and approach to politics and the everyday world:


A. We believe that mankind being imperfect, that no perfect society or government can ever be created.

Since believing as we do through reason, observation and experience that man will always make mistakes and stumble and fall. This necessitates that government’s power and authority should be constrained to the extent it is practicable with the pursuit of justice. That is why the Constitution says it is to “form a more perfect union.”

B. We believe in and support the norms of: keeping our word, avoiding reckless actions, and respecting the rule of law.

Support and practice of keeping our word, striving to act in a prudent manner, and respecting the rule of law are at the core of what we value most. You could even say that adherence to justice, and rule of law is our metier. We strive to be good at this because if we wish to avoid creating a terrestrial hell, we must be honest and even handed, with ourselves and others. As we keep our word to others we are also being honest with ourselves. The refusal to be delude oneself is one of the highest forms of virtue.

C. Prudence is a virtue, not an approach or ideal performed despite virtue.


adjective:  careful and sensible; marked by sound judgment

A common misconception that we often encounter among even the best of people. Is the ideal that one cannot be prudent or practical and also be moral. The accumulated wisdom of the ages shows us that this view is false. Prudent and practical people are that way because they are moral, not despite their morals. One of the key cornerstones of morality is honesty with oneself, and a striving to avoid deluding oneself. Yes, we all make mistakes. It is no sin to be honestly mistaken or to be misinformed. It is however fundamentally a disservice to ourselves and to others to willfully ignore reality. 

Being prudent i.e., being careful and sensible and exercising sound judgement can only be achieved by honesty with oneself or others.

There is a great deal more that needs to be said regarding the state of the world today, and where we will be heading to in the future. The wise man however does not attempt to answer all questions in one column. We will leave you with this post to ponder, and debate over. If this column helps to spark some debate, if it helps to shake us out of our apathy if only to a small degree, than it’s work has been done.

We have one last thing to say to our readers who disagree with us about Trumpism: We have no quarrel with anyone over who they support, our fight is not with you, it is with Trump and Trumpism. We ask that you keep that in mind. We also would ask as a favor to us, ask yourselves this question whenever you say that you support a position of Donald Trump’s: Do you honestly believe it? Or are you just going along with the crowd?

Let us know what you all think and we will catch you all later.

Peace be with you all, amen!

Will Donald Trump use Roger Stone to take out Governor Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis

Last month our good friend and fellow blogger Paul Ogden, wrote a column on his blog speculating that former President Donald Trump would work to derail the re-election bid of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis next year. Paul’s reason for coming to this conclusion is that in a poll conducted by GOP pollster Carter Wrenn on behalf of former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s Super PAC, DeSantis and Trump had become statistically tied in a match up for the 2024 GOP Presidential nomination. 

We have been pondering this one over and have come to agree with Paul that Trump will most likely try to derail DeSantis’s re-election next year. As the brilliant GOP political strategist Mike Murphy has said (we are paraphrasing a statement of Murphy’s made on an episode of Bill Kristol’s Conversations w/Bill Kristol) “The problem a prominent republican has is if they start to look like they are upstaging Trump. Is very similar to what would happen if Pravda started to praise one of Stalin’s Marshall’s too much is that the Marshall is dead two days later. Trump won’t abide anyone appearing to outshine him.”

Paul’s post seems to indicate that he believes Trump would probably finish off DeSantis by claiming non stop that the election will be rigged in Florida. Thus driving out republican turnout in Florida, just as Trump did in last year’s U.S. Senate runoff elections which enabled the Democrats to win two Senate seats. 

However we have long thought the above strategy that Paul suggests although logical, is not the approach Trump will take. Because that approach is not a personal enough attack against DeSantis. Subtly is not a strong suit of Trump’s. Therefore Trump will want to use an approach that is much more of a direct attack on DeSantis. We just came across a news story in the October 31, 2021 issue of Business Insider by Cheryl Teh. 

Cheryl Teh’s article reports that former Nixon dirty tricks man and Trump staffer might run against DeSantis next year for Governor. Teh writes:

Roger Stone

Longtime Trump ally Roger Stone is threatening to run to unseat Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis if the latter does not conduct a vote audit in the state. 

"I heard governor Ron DeSantis say that Florida had the most honest election in our history in 2020, yet I know for a certainty there are one million phantom voters on the Florida voter rolls. These 'voters' simply do not exist," wrote Stone in his Telegram channel to some 20,000 subscribers on October 31.

"If Gov. Ron DeSantis does not order a full audit of the Florida 2020 vote, I may be forced to seek the Libertarian Party nomination for governor in 2022. And Ron can kiss his arrogant Yalie ass goodbye #DefendFlorida," Stone added.

If Stone really is serious about running as a Libertarian for Florida Governor next year. The only conclusion we would reach is that instead of trying to defeat DeSantis by depressing GOP voter turnout. Instead they would hope to draw just enough dissatisfied Trump voters to Stone’s ticket. Which in turn would probably throw the election to DeSantis’s Democratic challenger, but would eliminate him from contention as a candidate for the 2024 GOP Presidential race. 

Stone would not have sent out such a threat to run against DeSantis unless he had been given the green light from Trump to do so. We are still not convinced that Trump will run again in 2024. Even if for arguments sake he has already decided not to run, he won’t make a definite statement on that until he absolutely has to. Do say anything earlier would limit Trump’s ability to fleece more money from his donors.

We will have to wait and see if Stone does run as a Libertarian for Florida Governor next year. One thing that just crossed our minds is that  if DeSantis isn’t re-elected and the Democrats take the Governor’s mansion. Is that might come back to bite the GOP in the ass. The Democrats have not held the Governor’s office in Florida since 1994. The Democrats winning the Governor’s office would be a big blow to Florida Republicans and could also have negative consequences for them down ballot in 2022 and 2024. Also whatever Democrat would get elected would undoubtedly start doing all they could to undermine the Republican Party in Florida. Now we are not fans of DeSantis, Stone or any of the potential Democrats running especially former Governor Charlie Crist. But if DeSantis and Stone are going to act this insane, then we are willing to deal with a Democrat as Florida Governor for a term. 

Now DeSantis will do all he can to try to appease Trump. But it will all be in vain. Trump is loyal only to Trump. He believes everyone else is as devoid of morals and loyalty as he is. Our advice to DeSantis would be to either not run for re-election and avoid a possible loss, or actually grow some balls and start fighting Trump. Ron won’t do either, so we are just going to grab some popcorn and match the ensuing Florida bloodbath.

Captain Kirk to Boldy Go Into Space Tomorrow

Tomorrow one of Indy Republican’s most favorite actors, William Tiberius Shatner is going to go into outer space. He will also be appearing at Indiana Comic Con this weekend. In honor of this great man, we have decided to honor him by showing his talents as a singer. Back in 1978 William Shatner did this amazing rendition of that great Elton John classic “Rocketman”.

Let’s all wish Mister Shatner well tomorrow during his voyage into space.

This is for you Bill! May you boldly go where no other Star Trek actor has gone before! Also May you still have that same youthful vigor when you finally reach, if you ever do old age.

A Few Thoughts on America, Religion and the Future

In contrast to the broad scope of the title of this column. This post will be brief and to the point. We understand and in many ways share the concerns and fears of our fellow Americans in this the year of our Lord two thousand and twenty-one. However we also are possessed of the spirit of eternal optimism that has been a part of our American character since the first settlers arrived centuries ago on our shores.

There has been talk recently of many people all over the ideological spectrum about the possible splitting apart of these United States. To this we say: Nonsense! The republic has withstood a civil war and countless threats since the days of the founders. And we will survive today. Another fact that is ignored is that for any breaking apart of the country to occur, enough of us would have to quit watching tv, and go fight. We might be wrong but we see little evidence that will occur. 

Politicians come and go, but the United States remains. We must learn to turn away from politics as a religion and return it to the realm of upholding the constitution and the republic for which it stands. If we repent or rethink our ideas and where we wish to go, we will recapture the best and most true parts of both our spiritual and political traditions. At times we will site various scriptural passages in support of general principles and to show both religious and secular backing for the truths we hold dear and proclaim.

We as Americans have far more control and options than we often give ourselves credit for. We understand why people are frustrated with politics, we are also. Bottom line is that most politicians are selling all of us short. When we all go to our jobs, when we are with our family and friends. We deep down want to achieve greatness, we wish to provide for ourselves and those we love. We want to work productively. We don’t care where our neighbors are from, what the color of their skin is, or even if they disagree with us in radical ways. What we do care about is that others treat us with respect, don’t try to run our lives for us and they let us live in peace. The political establishment of both parties wants to keep us down, they want us to be dependent on them for our food, shelter and fortunes. The sheer size of the federal deficit is the unanswerable argument against allowing politicians to have control over our lives! As it is written: “Let none be ye called masters” Matthew 23:10

If we want to improve ourselves and others we can and we will! We can worry about litter all day, or we can adopt a highway and help keep it clean. We can complain about poverty and hunger, or we can donate food and other goods to charity or even cut out the middleman and give to others ourselves. The sky is nowhere near the limit! 

We won’t lie and say this will be easy. There will be difficulties and as Thomas Paine said “these are the times that try mens souls”. As it is written: “Blessed is he who perseveres under trial” James 1:12 

To all our brothers and sisters in America and around the world. We wish you all long life and happiness. In future posts we will elaborate further on how we best believe we can proceed to but ourselves and our nation back in order. There are policy and ideological issues that are relevant to the great task remaining. However we believe many of the political and spiritual problems facing us are a matter more of temperament than ideology.

We thank you all for your continuing support, we are forever indebted to many wonderful Hoosier patriots: Christine Scales, Paul Ogden, Charlie White and the late, great Gary Welsh. We love you Gary! Your spirit lives still!

Praise be to God! Amen! Hallelujah! Good Golly Miss Molly! 

And with that we leave you with this inspirational tune. The unforgettable theme to “Chariots of Fire” by the inimitable band Vangellis:

A Quick Word

Good evening ladies and gentlemen. First we would like to apologize to you all for the lack of columns since July. We all have had personal and family matters to attend to. Second, we would like to thank all of you out there for your support. And we look forward to many more years of blogging to come. As Thomas Paine would say: “These are the times that try mens souls.” But as our forefathers survived their challenges, we will survive ours! It is easy to get discouraged, but we have every reason to hope. For we carry the true spirit of the United States of America in us all. 

America cannot be killed because it is more than land, it is an eternal ideal. And ideas unlike people cannot be killed. The way we defeat the darkness is to not emulate it. Every act of positive goodness and holiness matters. Many of us here have been harmed and mistreated by people who are supposed to represent the ideals of Hoosierdom and Americanism. 

We all carry our own scars, we all have our difficulties. But thanks to the good and noble actions of our ancestors, those we love and ourselves. We all can find ways to heal ourselves, our state, and our nation. As it is written: “Let not your heart be troubled.” John 14:1-3, also it is written “Do not worry about tomorrow, for everyday has enough worry unto itself.” Matthew 6:34

We all understand to well the lonely walk of staying on the straight and narrow. We also are painfully aware that many will misunderstand our goals and ideals. As fallible men and women such misunderstandings are not unusual. 

To those who disagree with us: There is no malice or ill will towards you from any of us. Although we are optimistic about the future, we write with the full knowledge that our activism might cost us our lives. We don’t wish to have our lives ended. But if and when our time in this world ends, we will have no regrets. 

Let us close with a quote from President Lincoln, a man who gave his life for all of us:  "With malice toward none with charity for all with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right let us strive on to finish the work we are in to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan ~ to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."

Praise be to GOD! Amen! God Bless America!

Hoosier Supermom Jennifer Glynn’s Facebook Page helps Hoosiers resolve their Unemployment Issues

Jasmine Minor’s report on Hoosier Heroine Jennifer Glynn 

As you all probably know by now, the Hoosier state is dropping the ball Bigly when it comes to paying Hoosiers their unemployment benefits. On Tuesday we wrote about the complete silence of the Department of Workforce Development in addressing these issues. However there is some hope in all of the darkness that is surrounding the cesspool that is our state’s unemployment system. In addition to WISH-TV’s Richard Essex and WTHR’s Bob Segall, Jasmine Minor is joining the fight for government transparency and accountability!

Here’s Jasmine Minor reporting:

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Jennifer Glynn, a mom of two, started an unemployment help group on Facebook to assist people in securing unemployment benefits.

Her only experience was going through the unemployment filing process before, but her free advice has been priceless for nearly 7,000 Hoosiers struggling to get the benefits they deserve. 

“These people shouldn’t be losing their homes, they shouldn’t be losing everything that they own,” Glynn said. “I’ve had people tell me that they were on the brink of depression until I helped them, that they were on the verge of giving up until I gave them hope.”

Glynn says while the group feels like a full-time job, often answering calls and messages at 3 a.m., she believes it’s necessary work because people are growing desperate. 

“Who else is going to help them?” Glynn asked. “I’m trying to help everybody that I can. And there have been times that I have not been able to help somebody. And that’s disappointing.”

She says the most common issue she sees is when people receive a letter for making an error on their filing or their appeal form. That error that can be costly. 

“I specifically know one woman, she had to wait over a year just for one error,” Glynn said. “That’s the longest that I’ve seen.”

However, she says it’s been nearly impossible to get someone from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development to answer a phone call or email, making it difficult to figure out what the exact error was. 

Glynn says if a claim has an issue, it can’t be fixed until a claims representative or an investigator. 

“The Indiana Department of Workforce Development currently has 16 issues listed on their COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions worksheet,” Glynn said. “The list that I have, I currently have a list of 47 that could cause issues and keep somebody from getting paid. Big difference, right?”

Glynn says, after doing extensive research, she was able to create templates others can fill out to make sure the right information is getting to claim representatives so that errors are not made. She then helps to make sure those forms are sent to the right place.

We here at Indy Republican salute Jennifer Glynn! It is men and women like her that will help us all to achieve more of our goals of good government! Gary Welsh is smiling down from heaven on this awesome lady!

If anyone needs help with their unemployment claim please click here to go to Jennifer Glynn’s Facebook Group. She needs all the help she can get!
