Are The Social Media Giants Trying To Steal The 2018 Elections By Censoring Conservative Websites?

Nobody is disputing the fact that YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media giants are censoring conservative material.  In fact, this is probably the largest purge of conservative voices in the history of the Internet.  Obviously this is going to cause large numbers of people to stop using their platforms, so why would they do this?  Well, to some conservatives the answer is obvious.  These social media giants watched Donald Trump use their platforms extremely effectively in 2016, and many believe that they are absolutely determined to never let that happen again.  In fact, Mike Adams of Natural News is completely convinced that there is a concerted effort by these social media giants to steal the 2018 elections…

The realization is suddenly obvious: The Google / YouTube selective “censorship rampage” that has targeted conservative websites and content creators is a brazen, illegal scheme to interfere with U.S. elections and steal the 2018 mid-terms.

The systematic silencing of conservative views is necessary, of course, for Democrats to win enough seats to gain control of the U.S. House of Representatives after the mid-term elections. Once control is established, Democrats will immediately move to impeach President Trump. Although the Senate would not likely prosecute that impeachment, the mere achievement of the U.S. House declaring “impeachment” would be enough to convince most brainwashed news consumers that Trump is somehow a guilty criminal (nobody will remember that Bill Clinton was also impeached by the House). From there, the 2020 presidential election is also stolen, and Democrats land their selected tyrant in the White House just in time for Ginsberg’s retirement from SCOTUS.

If voices on the left were being censored to the same degree as conservative voices, it would be really hard to make such an argument.

But the truth is that the numbers show that conservative voices are being hit extremely hard by the censorship while liberal publishers have been mostly “unaffected”

Facebook’s January 12 announcement that it would begin to de-prioritize news publishers and their posts in users’ News Feeds has had a surprisingly profound and partisan impact. According to The Outline’s analysis of Facebook engagement data obtained from research tool BuzzSumo, conservative and right-wing publishers (such as Breitbart, Fox News, and Gateway Pundit) were hit the hardest in the weeks following the announcement, with Facebook engagement totals for February dropping as much as 55 percent for some, while the engagement numbers of most predominantly liberal publishers remained unaffected.

And this even applies to politicians as well.  For example, President Trump’s engagement on Facebook has fallen 45 percent since the algorithm change…

The algorithm change caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%.

In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement.

Top conservative Facebook pages with daily traffic in the millions have seen 75% to 95% drop in traffic.
Young Cons, Western Journalism,, Independent Journal Review, Right Wing News, and several others have seen dramatic loss in traffic.

Needless to say, my website ( has been affected as well.

So what can we do?

We can fight back.  One of the primary ways that we can do that is by electing pro-Trump candidates all over the nation in 2018.  Right now I am engaged in an extremely close race with three guys that did not want Donald Trump to win the Republican nomination in 2016, and I need your help to win on May 15th.

It is fundamentally wrong for the social media giants to pick winners and losers in the marketplace of ideas.  I will fight online censorship as hard as I can in Washington, and if you believe in what we are trying to do I hope that you will stand with us.

Whenever radical leftists have taken power anywhere in the world, they have always tried to shut down free speech.

They want to follow the same formula in the United States, but we are not going to allow them to do that.

There are millions upon millions of red-blooded Americans that still greatly love this nation, and this silent majority is rising up to take our country back.

This Is The Worst Purge Of Conservative Voices In The History Of The Internet

In recent weeks, we have witnessed an unprecedented social media crackdown on conservative voices.  YouTube’s war with Alex Jones has gotten the most attention, but literally hundreds of conservative content creators have had their accounts penalized, suspended or deleted by YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media giants.  There appears to be a coordinated effort to target conservative viewpoints, because similar voices on the left are not receiving equal treatment.  If I win my race for Congress on May 15th, I am going to make fighting this sort of censorship one of my top priorities once I get to Washington.

How would you feel if you spent years creating videos and building up a subscriber base only to have all of that work wiped out in a single moment by a leftist YouTube moderator?

Sadly, that is precisely what is happening to dozens upon dozens of conservatives right now…

Writing for, Julia Alexander noted that, “Whenever YouTube institutes a tougher moderation stance, a common debate emerges over censorship—especially from notable conservative voices.”

Specifically, she explained, “Questions over YouTube’s moderators and the power they hold were raised this week after notable conservative pundits, gun advocates, conspiracy channels and other right-wing voices received community strikes or were locked out of their channels. Creators who are affected by lockouts, strikes and suspensions are referring to it as the ‘YouTube Purge,’ claiming that YouTube is purging all right-wing or pro-gun content. The move follows the company’s attempt to clamp down on dangerous content following the Parkland shooting.”

One of the most disturbing examples of censorship was what happened to the Health Ranger channel.  Mike Adams is a personal friend, and I am extremely upset about what YouTube has done to him

As we reported over the weekend, YouTube terminated the entire Health Ranger video channel on Saturday, wiping out over 1,700 videos and approximately 350K+ subscribers. This was done, of course, as part of the YouTube left-wing PURGE now being carried out against non-establishment speakers who are being targeted for political reasons.

YouTube’s censorship rampage also wiped out all my videos on the donkeys I rescued, the range-free chickens I raise and even the beautiful ice crystals I captured on video over the winter. In its censorship sweep, YouTube is obliterating thousands of videos without cause, violating the civil rights of informative internet users and functioning as a criminal techno-cartel.

There is absolutely no reason for YouTube to do this.  Mike Adams has literally helped millions of people through his work, and I am urging all of my readers to contact YouTube and demand that they restore his channel immediately.

Of course YouTube is not the only one that is cracking down on conservative voices.  Here are a few examples of what Facebook has been doing

Young Cons: This very popular conservative news site had millions of daily readers during the recent election, and the site received nearly all its traffic from Facebook (Lesson: Never put all your marketing eggs in one basket). Facebook has been increasingly censoring Young Cons stories since 2016; now the site struggles mightily and regularly switches domains in order to maintain traffic. At one point the former GOP VP nominee and Alaska governor’s website was serving up stories to her four million Facebook followers, but she, too, had to begin switching domains in order to maintain traffic.

Right Wing News: This site grew to massive proportions over the past few years, in large part thanks to its meteoric popularity on Facebook. During one week in 2015, the site’s Facebook page reached 133 million people. The site was driving about the same amount of web traffic as some of the biggest newspapers in the U.S. But since 2016 Facebook began blocking traffic to the site; its owner, John Hawkins, announced he would shut it down in January (it’s still online but the content is not regularly updated).

Independent Journal Review: This, too, was a large conservative news and information source, but because it was overly reliant on Facebook traffic, the site had to terminate a number of its employees last week, leaving the fate of the Millennial-focused site in doubt.

And Twitter has been censoring conservatives as well.

In particular, Twitter seems to really dislike pro-life activists

Pro-life group Live Action cried foul in 2017 after Twitter demanded it delete pro-life images, such as fetal ultrasounds, from its Twitter feed and website before allowing the group to run advertisements. Live Action refused the request.

Another pro-life group, the Susan B. Anthony List, was barred in October from running a video advertisement, because it used the phrase “killing babies” to refer to abortion. “No advertiser is permitted to use the phrase ‘killing babies,’” Twitter told the group.

That same month, Twitter blocked an advertisement by Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s campaign for Senate in Tennessee. Twitter objected to one line Blackburn said: “I’m 100% pro-life. I fought Planned Parenthood, and we stopped the sale of baby body parts –thank God.”

If you don’t stand up when you see others being censored, then please don’t complain when the social media giants censor you as well.  I think that Dr. Michael Brown made this point exceedingly well in his most recent article

First they came for Infowars, and I did not speak out—because I found them offensive.

Then they came for Geller and Spencer, and I did not speak out—because I found them obnoxious.

Then they came for Prager U, and I did not speak out—because I found them opinionated.

Then they came for a host of others, and I did not speak out—because I have my own life to live.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

This is why we need good liberty-minded people to run for office all over the nation.

If we do not fight back, this sort of oppression is only going to get worse.  Right at this moment I am engaged in an extremely tight race for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, and if you want me to go to Washington and defend our free speech rights, please consider making a contribution because we desperately need it right now…

Dialing For Dollars: Members Of Congress Are Instructed To Spend 4 Hours A Day On The Telephone Raising Money

When I made the decision to run for Congress, I figured that I better learn how members of the House of Representatives actually spend their time, and what I learned chilled me to the core.  It turns out that both parties instruct their members to spend approximately four hours a day on the telephone raising money.  As a new member of Congress, I would be expected to raise $200,000 for the National Republican Congressional Committee, and that would require me to spend enormous amounts of time away from the job that I was actually elected to do.  Of course I have already pledged that I will not “dial for dollars”, and the establishment is not pleased about that at all.  To me, it is absolutely disgraceful what our system has become.  Today, members of Congress are essentially mid-level telemarketers for the NRCC or the DCCC, and it is time that we said enough is enough.

As I have traveled around Idaho’s first congressional district and shared how members of Congress spend much of their time “dialing for dollars”, many people have had a difficult time believing that it is true.  But of course many current members of Congress have spoken out about this, and that includes U.S. Representative Rick Nolan.  During a recent interview with CBS News, he explained that new members of Congress are expected to spend 30 hours a week “dialing for dollars”…

Rep. Rick Nolan: Well, both parties have told newly elected members of the Congress that they should spend 30 hours a week in the Republican and Democratic call centers across the street from the Congress, dialing for dollars.

Norah O’Donnell: Thirty hours a week?

Rep. Rick Nolan: Thirty hours is what they tell you you should spend. And it’s discouraging good people from running for public office. I could give you names of people who’ve said, “You know, I’d like to go to Washington and help fix problems, but I don’t want to go to Washington and become a mid-level telemarketer, dialing for dollars, for crying out loud.”

If you divide 30 hours a week by 7 days, that comes to more than 4 hours a day.

Is that how you want your representatives in Congress spending their time?

Not too long ago, U.S. Representative Ken Buck was interviewed by award-winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson, and he explained that a new Republican member of Congress would be expected to raise around $200,000 for the party, but that is just the base level.

In his recent book, Buck went on to share that committee chairmen are expected to raise far more than that.  The following comes from an article published by the Hill

In his recently published tell-all book, Colorado Republican Rep. Ken Buck (R) exposed how these fundraising quotas have soared. Chairs of the so-called “A” committees — such as Appropriations, Financial Services, and Ways and Means — are now expected to raise $1.2 million for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). All the while, chairs of the so-called “B” committees — such as the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee — are expected to raise $875,000.

When you start learning how things really work in Washington, it makes perfect sense why Congress only has a 15 percent approval rating at this point.

No member of Congress should ever have to “buy” a spot on any committee.

Fortunately, there are a few members of Congress that have spoken out against this very corrupt system.  One of them was former U.S. Representative David Jolly

It is a cult-like boiler room on Capitol Hill where sitting members of Congress, frankly I believe, are compromising the dignity of the office they hold by sitting in these sweatshop phone booths calling people asking them for money. And their only goal is to get $500 or $1,000 or $2,000 out of the person on the other end of the line. It’s shameful. It’s beneath the dignity of the office that our voters in our communities entrust us to serve.

This is why we should ask every single person running for Congress to take a pledge that they will not participate in this system.

I have publicly taken such a pledge, but not a single one of my six opponents has done so.

Could you imagine being elected to Congress and then spending 30 hours a week cold calling people like some sort of crooked telemarketer?  This is precisely what is happening, and it is absolutely disgusting.  Here is more from former U.S. Representative Jolly

Simply by calling people, cold-calling a list that fundraisers put in front of you, you’re presented with their biography. So please call John. He’s married to Sally. His daughter, Emma, just graduated from high school. They gave $18,000 last year to different candidates. They can give you $1,000 too if you ask them to. And they put you on the phone. And it’s a script.

Since members of Congress are forbidden by law from making fundraising calls from their offices, they have to go somewhere else to make these calls.

Right across from the U.S. Capitol there are two very large call centers – one for Republicans and one for Democrats.  CBS News was able to get a hidden camera into one of these call centers, and it does not sound like a pleasant environment…

No photos exist of the inside of either the Democratic or Republican centers. But with the help of a staffer, we were able to get into the Republican center with a hidden camera.

About a dozen tiny offices, equipped with a phone and computer line a corridor. This is where members of Congress sit behind closed doors and plow through lists of donors dialing for dollars. Outside in the main hallway is a big board where the amount each member has raised for the party is posted for all to see and compare.

When I go to Washington I am going to introduce legislation to end this system.  Every member of Congress should be focusing on doing the job that they were sent there to do, but the current system will persist until we stand up and take action.

Like I have said so many times before, I am going to Washington to turn things upside down.  We are going to drain the swamp and clean up the corruption.

If you believe in what we are trying to do, please consider supporting us.  We are being supported by small grassroots donations from all over the country, and we believe that now is the time to take our government back.  If you would like to make a contribution to our campaign, here is how you can do it…

What Do You Think Would Have Happened To America If Hillary Clinton Had Won The Election?

As I travel up and down Idaho’s first congressional district, I frequently talk with voters about how we almost lost everything in November 2016.  When I ask what a Hillary Clinton presidency would have meant for this country, almost every single time I get a response like “it would have been over” or “we would have been finished”.  Our Republic was already hanging by a thread going into 2016, and even four years under Clinton may have been enough to wipe out any hope of ever turning things around.  The election of Donald Trump was literally the greatest miracle in modern American political history, but it doesn’t mean that our Republic has been saved.  What it does mean is that we now have a narrow window of opportunity to save our Republic.

Today they call themselves “Democrats”, “liberals” and “progressives”, but the truth is that leftist politicians in both parties have been steadily marching us down the road toward socialism for a very long time.  Our Constitutional Republic is barely recognizable at this point, and it is going to take emergency measures to restore it.  So now is definitely not a time for politics as usual and more of the same in Washington.  Instead, we need to send bold leaders to Washington that will be willing to turn our deeply corrupt system upside down.  If I am able to win my race and get to Washington that is precisely what I intend to do, but I can’t do it alone.  There are less than 80 days to go until May 15th, and I am asking for your help to win this incredibly close race.

Doing nothing is not an option.

If we fail to take advantage of this opportunity provided by the Trump presidency, eventually the left will retake control and will continue marching us down the road toward socialism until the Republic that our founders established is destroyed for good.

In 2018 if we elect typical wimpy Republican politicians that simply want to be part of the Washington club and advance their political careers, nothing will get accomplished.

What we need are visionary men and women that are willing to stand up to the leadership of both parties and say that enough is enough.

We are simply not going to do things the same way any longer.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again.  What we need is a second American revolution.  I am not talking about a revolution of guns and bullets, but rather one of ideas, values and principles.  I would like to share what I wrote about this second American revolution when I first announced my candidacy last July…

Today, the liberal elite dominate almost every aspect of our society. Their enormous media corporations control more than 90 percent of the news and entertainment that we watch on our televisions, their dominance of the legal system has resulted in the legalization of abortion and gay marriage, and their relentless grip on public education means that an entire generation of young Americans is being indoctrinated in their ways.

And of course for decades the liberal elite have been accustomed to pulling the strings in both major political parties. Many had believed that it would be impossible for us to ever take our government back, but the election of Donald Trump showed us that anything is possible if we will just work together.

Today, our Republic is hanging by a thread. If our founders had not stood up and fought for their way of life, the United States of America would not exist today, and if we do not stand up and fight for our way of life now, there will be nothing to pass on to our children and our grandchildren.

There are many that believe that America is too far gone, and so they are content to sit back and wait for everything to fall apart.

But that is not my choice.

I choose to fight for America.

Every generation of Americans has had to take a stand for liberty, and now it is our turn.

Please join this nationwide movement, because this literally may be the last chance we ever have to take our government back.

If we can get to Congress, we are going to fan the flames of this fire until it sweeps all across America.  But we need to get there first, and you can help make that happen by making a contribution today…

We have put together a great plan for pulling ahead in these final weeks, but we do not yet have all the resources that we need to execute that plan.  Please prayerfully consider helping us during this final stretch if you feel a leading in your heart to do so.

Gun Sales Skyrocket As Gun Owners Brace For An All-Out Assault On Our Second Amendment Rights

Every time the left goes into a gun grabbing frenzy, gun sales always end up going through the roof.  In the aftermath of the recent tragedy in Florida, we are seeing an all-out assault on our 2nd Amendment rights like we haven’t seen in decades.  Politicians from both parties are pushing for new gun control legislation, and as a result gun owners all over the nation are feverishly stockpiling weapons and ammo while they still can.  In fact, Google searches for “buy a gun” and “buy AR15” both just hit the highest levels ever recorded.

At a gun show down in Tampa, Florida over the weekend, nearly 7,000 people showed up on a single day.  The Republican governor down there has turned out to be a gun control nut, and so true conservatives are buying guns while they still can.  The following comes from my good friend Mac Slavo

According to the New York Times,  the lines stretched out the door this weekend at a gun show in Tampa, Florida, as thousands of potential buyers and the merely curious waited for their turn to browse booths stocked with the latest firearms, ammunition, customizable holsters, and patriotic paraphernalia.

Several sellers said they were on track to double their normal sales for a weekend. “It’s sad to say, but whenever there’s a shooting, business only goes up because people are afraid of losing their right to own a certain weapon,” said Quaidman Woody, who was running a booth with his father, a sales representative for CrossHeirs. “So even if they don’t need another AR, they’ll buy another AR or pieces of it.”

The left keeps insisting that more gun control is the answer, but look at what has happened to communities all over the country that have instituted very strict gun laws.  Violent crime is at record levels in Chicago and other left-leaning cities across the nation, and meanwhile violent crime is at very low levels in communities that encourage gun ownership.

All throughout history, leftist governments have grabbed guns with absolutely tragic results.  After massive gun grabbing campaigns, millions perished in the Soviet Union, Red China and Nazi Germany.  Yes, the Nazis were leftists.  They were “national socialists” that believed that big government was the solution to everything.

For decades, America has been marching down the road toward socialism as well.  Under Barack Obama, gun owners were so concerned about the threat to our fundamental rights that it pushed gun sales to unprecedented heights.  Here is more from Mac Slavo

Under Obama, background checks for guns reached 141.4 million through the end of May 2016, amounting to sales of about 52,600 a day, according to the FBI. Last year, the FBI conducted more than 23 million background checks, which are generally used to figure sales of new and used weapons.

The media and anti-gun liberals are one of the best things for the gun industry; the very industry they are so desperately trying to cripple.

It is absolutely imperative that we send more true conservatives to Congress in 2018, because we are literally in a battle for the soul of our nation.

If we continue on the road that we are currently on, eventually we will become another “failed socialist utopia” and our constitutional republic will be gone forever.

But that isn’t going to happen.  With Trump in the White House, this is our opportunity to take our government back, and future generations will look back on this moment in history as the key turning point.

Tell Us What You Think – Will More Gun Control Make America A Safer Place?

The left has decided that the great tragedy that we just witnessed down in Florida is an opportunity to try to grab our guns.  We are witnessing an all-out assault on the 2nd Amendment like we haven’t seen in decades, and this will undoubtedly be one of the most hotly debated issues as we head into the 2018 mid-term elections.  I will never compromise a single inch when it comes to the 2nd Amendment, but unfortunately not all politicians are willing to take the same stand.  In fact, some of my opponents publicly indicated that they were willing to compromise on gun issues even before the tragedy in Florida took place.  If you would like to help us win this race so that we can relentlessly stand up for your 2nd Amendment rights in Washington, here is how you can make a financial contribution…

The 2nd Amendment says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed”.

Unfortunately, there has been a whole lot of infringing going on.

In this race for Congress, a couple of my opponents also say that they are “100% pro-gun”, but what they mean by that is very different from what I mean.

The status quo is not acceptable.  For decades, Democrats have been moving the ball forward on gun control whenever they are in power, and then Republicans pledge to keep them from going any further once they take control.  But the Republicans never go back and actually repeal the bad things that the Democrats put in place.

I believe that we need to repeal the major federal gun control laws that currently exist, and I am the only candidate in this race that has publicly taken that stand.

Keeping the Democrats from passing even more gun control laws is not enough.  We must get rid of all laws that are currently infringing our 2nd Amendment rights, and if you agree with me I would like to ask for your support.

We have just 80 days until May 15th, and this race for Congress is super close.  We have a great plan for pulling ahead in these last 80 days, but we haven’t raised all of the resources that we need to execute that plan.  Here is how you can help…

I live in north Idaho, and I sleep very well at night because I know that virtually everybody is armed.  If some thieves decided that it would be a good idea to start breaking into homes at night, they would have extremely short criminal careers.

Gun control is never the answer.  Just look at Chicago.  It has some of the toughest gun laws in the entire nation and yet murder and other forms of violent crime are completely out of control.

We need to send people to Washington that understand that there can never be any compromise when it comes to our 2nd Amendment rights.

If you live in Idaho, make sure that you get registered to vote.  If you are already registered, your local county clerk can help you with an application for an absentee ballot.

Of course most people will vote on May 15th, and it is imperative that we all mark that day on the calendar.

If we do not vote, we may wake up some day and find that our 2nd Amendment rights are gone for good.  The left is absolutely determined to destroy this country, and we are not going to allow that to happen.

In Liberty,

Debt Cancer: More Than 80 Percent Of American Adults Owe Somebody Else Money

How long can our debt levels keep growing much, much faster than the overall economy?  We haven’t had a year of 3 percent growth for the U.S. economy since the middle of the Bush administration, but we keep borrowing money as if there is no tomorrow.  Much of the focus has been on the exploding debt of the federal government, and that is definitely something I plan to address once I get to Washington.  But on an individual level, U.S. consumers have been extremely irresponsible as well.  In fact, one new survey has found that more than 80 percent of all American adults are currently in debt

It’s no secret that America is a nation that runs on debt, but it may surprise you to learn that the overwhelming majority of U.S. adults owe money in some way, shape, or form. According to new data from Comet, here’s how many Americans have debt at present:

  • 80.9% of Baby Boomers
  • 79.9% of Gen Xers
  • 81.5% of Millennials

For most of us, it starts very early.  We were told that going into debt to get a college education would not be a problem because we would be able to pay those loans off with the good jobs we would get after graduation.

Unfortunately, those good jobs never really materialized for many of us, and now millions of former college students are absolutely drowning in debt

A study released Friday by the Brookings Institution finds that most borrowers who left school owing at least $50,000 in student loans in 2010 had failed to pay down any of their debt four years later. Instead, their balances had on average risen by 5% as interest accrued on their debt.

As of 2014 there were about 5 million borrowers with such large loan balances, out of 40 million Americans total with student debt. Large-balance borrowers represented 17% of student borrowers leaving college or grad school in 2014, up from 2% of all borrowers in 1990 after adjusting for inflation. Large-balance borrowers now owe 58% of the nation’s $1.4 trillion in outstanding student debt.

In addition to owing more than a trillion dollars on student loans, Americans are also now carrying more than a trillion dollars of auto loan debt and more than a trillion dollars of credit card debt.

Corporations have been incredibly irresponsible as well.  Corporate debt has doubled since the last financial crisis, and corporate bankruptcies have been rising steadily in recent years.  All it would take for the dominoes to really start falling is some sort of a major economic downturn.

Local, state and federal government debt levels are all at record highs as well.  It is now being projected that our national debt will hit 30 trillion dollars by 2028, and those projections are probably too optimistic.

My guess is that we will almost certainly hit the 30 trillion dollar mark far sooner than that.

We can’t keep doing this to ourselves.  Our incessant greed is literally destroying the future, but anyone that tries to warn about the collective insanity that has descended upon our society is mocked and ridiculed.

Let me ask you a question.

Would you willingly choose to give yourself cancer?

Of course not, but that is essentially what we are doing to ourselves as a society.

Debt is economic cancer, and as Lance Roberts has pointed out, if we continue to allow debt levels to grow like this eventually it will kill our entire economy…

Debt is, by its very nature, a cancer on economic growth. As debt levels rise it consumes more capital by diverting it from productive investments into debt service. As debt levels spread through the system it consumes greater amounts of capital until it eventually kills the host.

Debt is addictive, because it does boost our standard of living in the short-term.  It is so easy to keep going back for one more “hit”, but every time we do it just makes our long-term crisis even worse.

Most people out there seem to think that our economic problems have been “solved”, but that is not true at all.

The truth is that our long-term problems just continue to grow with each passing day, and that is one of the reasons why I am so determined to go to Washington.  We are at such a critical juncture right now, and if something is not done the prognosis is extremely negative.

If we stay on this current path, the very best that we can hope for is a “soft landing” and a greatly reduced standard of living for future generations of Americans.  Here is more from Lance Roberts

The processes that fueled the economic growth over the last 30 years are now beginning to run in reverse, and when combined with the demographic shifts in the U.S., the impact could be far more immediate and prolonged than the media, economists, and analysts are currently expecting. Sacrifices will have to be made, the economy will drag on at subpar rates of growth, individuals will be working far longer into their retirement years and the next generation of Americans will lead a far different life than what the currently retiring generation enjoyed.

It is simply a function of the math.

I am sorry for not writing more lately.  I have been working night and day to get ready for May 15th.  With Donald Trump in the White House, this is our opportunity to take our government back.  If we miss this window, we may never have this sort of opportunity ever again.

America is drowning in debt, but of course our problems go far beyond that.  Our economic, political, cultural and spiritual problems go very deep, and we desperately need to change course as a nation.

Unfortunately, most of the population is in a deep state of sleep, and my hope is that we can wake them up while there is still time to turn things around.

Michael Snyder is a pro-Trump candidate for Congress in Idaho’s First Congressional District, and you can learn how you can get involved in the campaign on his official website. His new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters” is available in paperback and for the Kindle on

The Next 90 Days Will Determine Whether Michael Snyder Goes To Congress, And We Need A $50,000 Miracle

After everything, it is going to come down to the last 90 days.  Hundreds of you have already gotten involved in this campaign either as volunteers or donors, and we have shocked the Idaho political elite by becoming one of the leading contenders in this race.  But there is no prize for coming in second place.  On May 15th, the voters in Idaho’s first congressional district will make their choice, and we didn’t put our blood, sweat and tears into this thing to come in second or third.  As I write this, there are four candidates that still have a legitimate shot of winning, and we are one of the four.  Our numbers have been steadily improving, and it is an incredibly tight race.  We have a great plan for pulling ahead during the final three months, but we need more resources in order to implement it.  Some of the best political minds in Idaho are on our team, and we know exactly what we need to do, but in order to make our plan a reality we need a $50,000 miracle.  If you feel a prompting in your heart to help, here is the information that you will need…

If 1,000 of my readers each donated $50 today, we would have everything we need to implement our plan for the rest of this election by tomorrow.

Unfortunately, if we don’t win this election it is going to be a major disaster for the Trump movement.  We don’t want to send someone to Washington that has publicly said that he “never” will support Donald Trump.  We don’t want to send someone to Washington that has publicly said that Donald Trump “can go straight to hell”.  And we definitely don’t want to send someone to Washington that voted against Donald Trump and that has literally surrounded himself with “never Trumpers”.

At first I didn’t fully understand why the Lord moved me in this direction, but now it has become exceedingly clear that there are no other acceptable options in this race.  Trump voters all over the district are pouring into our campaign, but there are still hundreds of thousands more voters that we need to reach with our message.

We are hoping that President Trump himself will come out to Idaho and make an appearance in support of our campaign.  If you would like to see this happen, there is something that you can do to help us.

We are encouraging all of our supporters to write to President Trump.  Please let him know that we would love to have him come out to Idaho and help get out the vote for our campaign.  If you would like to lend your hand to the effort, you can find the information for contacting the White House right here…

You can also contact the Trump team on Trump’s social media accounts…



If hundreds of you make your voices heard, it will make a huge difference.  And if we can get President Trump to make even a brief appearance on behalf of our campaign, that would almost certainly be enough to get us the victory.

Last week we had a very successful visit to central Idaho, and this week we will be down in south Idaho once again.  Everywhere we go the response to our campaign has been overwhelmingly positive, and we won the most recent KIDO online survey by a wide margin.

But a couple of our opponents have raised a bit more money than us, and we must close that gap.  We cannot allow a RINO to steal this seat by simply outspending us.

Have you ever seen an Olympic athlete run out of gas and blow a lead at the very end of a long race?  Well, we definitely do not want that to happen to us.  Throughout the second half of 2017 we worked incredibly hard in order to put ourselves into a position to win this thing, and now this is the big final push.  Fundraising is down from last quarter, but now is the time when we actually need it the most.

If you would like to see us win this race for Congress, please consider donating to the campaign.  We literally need a miracle, and you can be part of that miracle by making a contribution today…

I would like to thank everyone that has gotten involved in the campaign so far.  What we have already accomplished is a major miracle, and we have already completely shocked the Idaho political establishment.

But coming in second or third is not good enough, and in order to win on May 15th we have got to give it everything that we have got over the next 3 months.

Michael Snyder’s Campaign For Congress Has Just Received Two More Major Endorsements

There are less than 100 days to go until the primary on May 15th, and our campaign just continues to pick up more momentum.  We just received two more major endorsements, and more extraordinary people are joining the campaign with each passing day.  If you would like to join the team, you can find our volunteer page right here and our online donation page right here.  Earlier this evening we learned that we have officially been endorsed by Vote Team Trump, and we are extremely excited about that.  Those involved in the Trump movement all around the country are recognizing that this extremely close race here in Idaho is one of the most critical Republican primaries.  One of my main opponents has publicly stated that Donald Trump “can go straight to hell”, and if he wins this open seat it will be an absolute disaster for the Trump movement.

But we are not going to allow that to happen.  Our campaign is absolutely surging, and now we have the support of Vote Team Trump.  If you are not familiar with Vote Team Trump, here is a little bit about them from their official website is the official web site of the Vote Team Trump movement. We are not an organization, corporation, retailer, or reseller. We do not accept financial resources or assets from anyone in exchange for any product or service. We are not affiliated with any political party or action committee.We are a variegated grassroots movement that utilizes personal finances, assets, time, and talent to inform the People of Trumpian candidates. Our one common bond is the Trumpian platform: deregulation and downsizing of the federal government, legal immigration, an end to political terrorism, American economy first, American energy independence, preservation of American history and culture, states’ rights, and the American Constitution.

This endorsement from Vote Team Trump comes immediately after being endorsed by the largest Tea Party group on Facebook.  With nearly 100,000 members nationally, it is a very powerful force on Facebook, and we believe that they will be able to move a significant number of votes in our direction.

When Idaho State Senator Dan Foreman endorsed our campaign a few weeks ago on the steps of the Idaho state capitol, that was a major turning point.  Senator Foreman is one of the top conservative voices in the entire state, and since that time conservatives all over the state have begun coalescing around our campaign.

With just over three months to go until election day, this is the time for the final big push.  Over half of all voters are still completely undecided in this very tight race, and we need to reach them before the other candidates do.  There is so much that needs to be done in the coming weeks, and at this moment we do not have the resources to do it all.  We very much need your help right now, and so I am asking all of my core supporters to consider contributing at least 25 dollars to our campaign this month.

Another key turning point was the first candidate debate in Coeur d’Alene a couple of weeks ago.  We were widely acclaimed as the big winners of that debate, and a number of conservatives that were impressed with our performance during that debate have come on board as new volunteers.  If you have not seen our highlights from that debate yet, you can view them in high quality on YouTube right here.  We absolutely fried the other candidates, and for a couple of them this candidate forum was immensely damaging to their campaigns.

Tomorrow we hit the campaign trail yet again, and if you live in central Idaho I hope that you will make plans to join us.  On Sunday the 11th, I will be speaking with voters in Potlatch, Idaho at 2 PM at the Scenic 6 depot.

On this trip we will also be making stops in Lewiston and Grangeville, and later this month we will be making an extended visit down to south Idaho.

If you believe in what we are trying to do, this is your opportunity to be involved in a major congressional campaign.  We need as many volunteers as possible, we desperately need more donors to step forward from all over the country, we need more help sharing the material on our official Facebook campaign page, and more than anything we need our prayer warriors to be interceding for us.

If every one of my regular readers were to donate 25 dollars today, we could literally stop raising money tomorrow and focus all of our energy on campaigning for the next 90 days.  With Donald Trump in the White House, this is our opportunity to take our government back.  For those of you that are not familiar with our campaign yet, the following are 28 key things that I stand for…

#1 A Pro-Trump Conservative – Donald Trump helped restore my faith in America by winning the 2016 election, and I will fight like mad to implement his agenda if I am elected to Congress.

#2 It’s Time To Drain The Swamp – The same rules that apply to the rest of us should also apply to Congress, and all federal officials should be banned from working as lobbyists for at least ten years after they leave government service.

#3 Restoring The Rule Of Law – For decades, the American people have watched professional politicians commit crime after crime and get away with it. It is time to restore the rule of law in this country, and a great place to begin would be with Hillary Clinton and her close associates. It will be a great day for America when they are finally put in prison for the rest of their lives.

#4 Every RINO Must Go – Way too many Republicans have been fighting Trump’s agenda and acting like Democrats. It is time to hold them accountable, and that means every ‘Republican in name only’ needs to go.

#5 Getting The Money Out Of Politics – As a new member of Congress, I would be expected to raise approximately $200,000 for the National Republican Congressional Committee. In order to “pay their dues”, every day that the House is in session members of Congress go to call centers across from the U.S. Capitol and spend up to four hours a day making calls back to their districts begging people to donate money. One of the things that makes me fundamentally different from my opponents is that I have pledged not to make these calls. Instead, I am going to spend my time in Washington doing the work that the people of Idaho sent me there to do.

#6 100% Pro-Life – No money for Planned Parenthood ever. Nearly 60 million babies have been murdered since 1973, and I am making an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that funds Planned Parenthood 100% of the time.

#7 100% Pro-Gun – The Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Let me be very clear – I will never back down from defending the Second Amendment even a single inch. You have a constitutional right to own any gun that you want, and you have a constitutional right to carry that gun anywhere that you want.

#8 Abolish The IRS & The Income Tax – We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history. As we fight a long-term battle to abolish the income tax, in the short-term we can at least go to a flat tax or a fair tax, both of which would be far superior to what we have now.

#9 Abolish The Federal Reserve – Since the Fed was created in 1913, we have had 18 recessions, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 6000 times larger. Abolishing this debt-based system is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.

#10 Cut Red Tape – As President Trump has proposed, two existing government regulations should be eliminated for every new regulation that is enacted.

#11 Getting Federal Bureaucrats Off Our Backs – I will work very hard to get federal control freaks off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners, our ranchers and our small business owners.

#12 Local Control Of Education – It is time to get the federal government out of the education business. I want to abolish Common Core and the Department of Education, and I want control over education to be as close to the local level as possible.

#13 Shut Down Big Brother Spying – Government agencies have been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.

#14 True Limited Government – President Trump has proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. That would be a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies really need to remain open.

#15 100% Repeal Of Obamacare – Rapidly rising health insurance premiums are financially crippling Idaho families. Republicans in Congress have fumbled the ball, and we must repeal Obamacare immediately.

#16 Build The Wall – We need to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door. We must end illegal immigration, and so I support President Trump’s call to build a wall on the southern border.

#17 End Sanctuary Cities – President Trump has proposed cutting off all federal funding for so-called “sanctuary cities”, and I will fight very hard to get this done.

#18 Supporting Our Veterans – My father is a vet, and I will work passionately to make sure that our veterans receive the respect, care and support that they deserve.

#19 Fighting Islamic Terror – I fully support President Trump’s fight against ISIS, and I will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees from terrorist hotbeds.

#20 Stopping Reckless Government Spending – We are 20 trillion dollars in debt and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations every single hour of every single day.

#21 Bringing Jobs Back To America – The U.S. has lost more than 70,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our formerly great manufacturing cities now look like war zones, and we desperately need to start making things in this country once again.

#22 Energy Independence – The United States has abundant reserves of oil, natural gas and clean coal, and we need to take the regulatory shackles off of the energy industry so that we can start moving toward energy independence.

#23 Resisting The Globalists – We must reduce the power and influence of the United Nations, and we must strongly fight all attempts by the globalists to erode American sovereignty.

#24 Supporting States Rights – It is almost as if the 10th Amendment doesn’t even exist today. If I am elected, this is what his message to the feds will be: ‘Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho’.

#25 Health Freedom – I believe that the government should be encouraging natural health remedies instead of discouraging them, I believe that parents should always make the health decisions for their own children, and I believe that we desperately need to clean up our air, our water and our food.

#26 Removing The Wolves – Under Bill Clinton, Canadian gray wolves were brought to Idaho. These wolves travel in packs and are killing machines. I am 100% committed to removing these wolves from our state.

#27 Holding Judges Accountable – Federal judges that disregard the U.S. Constitution and that choose to legislate from the bench should be subject to impeachment.

#28 An Unashamed Christian – Like President Trump, I am not ashamed to say that I am a Bible-believing Christian, and if we truly want to make America great again we need to return to the values and principles that this nation was founded upon.

In the vast majority of the races for the House and the Senate around the country, we already know who is going to win.

Our race is one of the very few races that is completely undecided, and if we all pull together we can win this thing.

Please help us if you can.  Our numbers are surging, and to continue that surge we need to get our message to the more than 400,000 registered voters in this district within the next three months.  We have a very clear path to victory, but we must raise the resources that we need in order to execute our gameplan.

I would like to thank everyone that has already joined our team.  Because of you, we have already shaken the world of Idaho politics to the core.  If we ultimately pull out this victory, it will be the biggest shock in the history of Idaho politics, but it won’t be a surprise to us.

The Trump movement is all about winning, and we are going to win races all over the nation in 2018.

In Liberty,

Michael Snyder
Pro-Trump Candidate For Congress

The Leftists In The Idaho Media Freak Out As They Start To Realize That We Could Actually Win This Race For Congress

We figured that this was coming at some point.  We knew that as soon as the leftists in the Idaho media figured out that our numbers were surging they would bring out the claws.  And just like with Trump, they have completely discarded any pretense of being fair and objective.  A few days ago, an article by Chris Carlson was published in the Coeur d’Alene Press entitled “Will 1st District voters ever learn?”  It was supposed to be an article about the first candidate debate, but it ended up being a hit piece almost all about me.  If you have not watched the first debate yet, you can find the entire thing in very high quality video right here.  We were widely proclaimed to be the big winners of that debate, and now the other campaigns and the liberal media are totally freaking out.  Just like with Trump, they are all coming after us, and so we need your help more than ever.

If our campaign was irrelevant, they wouldn’t even waste their time attacking us.  So the fact that the liberal media is so determined to stop us is actually a very good sign.

But they could have at least gotten my name correct.  I haven’t used “Mike Snyder” in any setting for over a decade, and yet that is how this hit piece in the Coeur d’Alene Press identified me

Of the three pandering to the far right the worst was Mike Snyder from Bonners Ferry. He is the living definition of a demagogue. He began his introduction by shouting “how many of you out there believe Hillary Clinton ought to be in jail?” Two thirds of the audience raised their hands, but one brave person shouted loudly “no.” “How many of you believe Robert Mueller should be fired?” Again, two thirds of the hands went up.

“How many of you believe the Federal Reserve Bank should be abolished?” Again two-thirds of the hands raised. Utterly unbelievable there are that many folks who get suckered by such rhetoric and not only don’t trust government, but hate all levels.

No, we do not hate government at all.  In fact, I love the very limited federal government that our forefathers originally established.  We need to get back to that constitutional framework, but that kind of talk is absolute heresy to big government liberals.

Another thing that is getting under the skin of the liberal media is the fact that I am pledging never to vote for any bill that gives funding to Planned Parenthood.  Here is more from the CDA Press hit piece

Snyder continued his pandering by shouting that he would vote against any bill that contained as little as one penny for Planned Parenthood.

And I definitely did not shout.  It is just that the other candidates were so lifeless that anyone with even an ounce of passion or energy would have seemed a bit out of place in that setting.

I am not ashamed to be passionate about saving the unborn, and if you want to send a strong pro-life advocate to Washington please help us win on May 15th.  Nobody in this race is going to fight for the unborn like I will.

Another thing that greatly irritated Chris Carlson was the fact that I accused John McCain and Jeff Flake of being RINOs

Later, he implored the audience to drive the RINOs out of the Republican party and he accused Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake of being RINOs.

In this case, I am guilty as charged.

John McCain is a major RINO, and he has got to go.

And I am so glad that Jeff Flake is not pursuing another term, because he has been a complete and utter disgrace to his party, his state and his country.

Near the end of the article, Carlson rated the performance of all of the candidates at the forum on a scale from 1 to 10.  The liberal candidates got the highest scores, and the conservative candidates received the lowest scores.  So in a really twisted way, Carlson actually told conservatives exactly who they should be voting for

Leroy’s experience separated him from Malek and Perry. His answers were more specific and his knowledge of the issues deeper. If grading the top three on a scale of one to 10, I’d give Leroy an 8, Malek a 6 and Perry a 5. On the other side, Henderson gets 3, Fulcher a 2 and Snyder a 0.

This is what we are up against guys.

I never said this would be easy, but the good news is that our numbers are surging.  This race continues to tighten up, and well over half of all voters are still completely undecided.

This race is going to be decided between right now and May 15th, and we desperately need more fuel in the tank.  We know exactly what we need to do in order to win this race, and I would share some of that strategy with all of you here, but unfortunately we also know that spies from the other campaigns read these articles.

The bad news is that we do not currently have the resources to do everything that needs to be done in order to win, and so I am asking for your help.  A PAC that spent more than 7 million dollars trying to keep Donald Trump out of the White House has started to bundle contributions from donors and pour them into the campaign of one of my main opponents, and that is a major threat.  If we want to win this thing, we need to try to keep pace with that kind of fundraising, and so I am asking all of my readers to consider donating at least 50 dollars today.

We don’t have to raise more money than the other guys in order to win, but we need to be at least on the same playing field.  We have the most conservative campaign, we have the best message, and we have the power of the Trump movement behind us.

Our campaign is the one that is currently surging, and that is why the elite here in Idaho are freaking out.  Just like with Trump, they don’t want us to succeed, but we are going to win this election anyway.
